TUESDAY, NOVEMBER x.
In the general election next Tues
day it is the duty of every democrat
to go to the polls and cast his ballot
for the democratic nominees for both
federal and state officers. In every
congressional district the republicans
have nominated a candidate for con
gress. The purpose is to lay the
grounds for a contest and the lighter
the vote the stronger the foundation
they are laying.
In addition to that there are tour
amendments to the state constitution
to be voted on. It is important to
have a full and free expression of the
wishes of the people on these amend
* ments. We tried to eplain them in
our last issue. You are to vote on
the question of the legislature meet
ing every two years instead of an
nually. We believe it would be bet
- ter to have annual sessions and limit
them to thirty days each but the peo
ple have had this question discussed
sufficiently, we presume, to know what
they want. If you vote to repeal
two subdivisions which say the legis
lature shall not enact special laws
as to roads for the various counties
then you should vote for the amend
ment which says the legislature may
enact special laws as to this subject.
The other amendment refers solely
to the city of Greenville and if adopt
ed gives that city the right to in
crease its bonded debt to 15 per cent.
of the assessed value of the property.
As we predicted some time ago
Mr. J. W. Walker announces that he
will run for supervisor in Greenville
county in the general election. He
concludes his address by saying, "I
submit my case and leave with the
people the question whether the ma
jority vote, honestly obtained, shall
control or whether this vote can be
annuled by the partisan and illegal
action of above majority of the execu
We believe in standing to the nom
inee of the party, and to the party
machinery but from what we have
read of this case we are inclined to
the opinion that Mr. Walker is jus
tified in the course he has pursued.
The committee first declared him the
nominee, he having received a major
ity of the votes and then it wvent suf
ficiently into the case to throw out
enough votes to make Mr. Speegle
the nominee and refused to hear from
Mr. Walker's side. In other words
it was a partisan decision and not on
the merits of the case.
Nearly all democratic clubs have
met and passed resolutions asking
Walker to go into the general elec
tion as the rightful nominee of the
WVe have read the greater part of
Mr. Tillman's dispensary speech at
Gaffney and it seems to us that the
- burden of it is that the dispensary as
it is nowv run cannot last. There
. is very little difference in the way it
is run now from the manner of its
Mr. Tillman seems to be hedging.
He may see that the tide is turning
and he wants to get to windward.
The best thing to do is to abolish
the state institution and the state con
stabulary and let each county regu
late this business to suit itself and
enforce the law and, if it have dis
pensaries, take the profit. This can
be done and we believe will be the
best solution and will meet the re
quirements of the friends who want
the original Brice bill.
The Herald and News is glad to
* announce to its friends in Prosper
ity and all its subscribers that we
have arranged for a Prosperity de
partment of the paper and that thi'
bureau will be in charge of Mr. A.
H. Kohn, who is no stranger to our
readers, having been the Prosperity
correspondent for several years prior
to his going to Columbia. We have
also arranged with him to receipt
for old and new subscriptions and1
also to contract for advertising and
job printing. WVe want to make it
.iust as easy and convenient for our
friends to do business with us as
to them. Any orders given Mr.
Kohn will have prompt and careful
attention. We will endeavor to
put Prosperity news and Prosperity
adetiements on the same page so
as to g:e advertisment to the town
as well as the individual.
In this connection we want to ex
press our appreciation of the services
of Prof. E. 0. Counts who has been
furnishing us tFe news for some two
years or more. but the nature of his
profession and the duties attending
his work were such that he could not
give the importance to our Prosper
ity department which we hope Mr.
Kohn will be able to do and which
we desire to extend to this growing
and progressive community.
W%.e hope our friends will call on
Mlr. Kohn and help him.
keep posted and we want you to feel
that this department is yours for the
purp,ie of printing the news.
Sumter is to have a fall festival,
but there are to be no carni. al shows
there during that week. Most of
the towns and cities that have had
carnivals do not desire the return of
them. Newberry had one here some
while back and we thought that was
sufficient to satisfy us but city coun
cil has arranged to have another car
nival week. We do not believe it
will do the city any good. One
redeeming part of it is they are not
to be on the streets this time. The
other carnival was for the benefit of
the Knights of Pythias and we do
not remember that the lodge made
anything out of it. This time it is
for the benefit of the fire department.
We hope the firemen may be bene
fited but we very much doubt it.
The members of West Gantt dem
ocratic club want Senator Tillman to
come to Greenville and speak of the
Speegle-Walker contest. Senator
Tillman will most likely be too busy
speaking in the west for Parker and
Davis to get to Greenville.
It's just as well for a man not to
have a cent as to get married.
