The city council should build a
new bridge over the railroads on
Boundarv street. It should be a steel
bridge. The bridge that is there
now has the appearance of being
dangerous, and if it is not dangerous
the dilapidated appearance of the
bridge is sufficient to cause the erec
tion of a new one. Maybe it is the
duty of the railroads to keep this
bridge in repair. If so let city coun
cil inform the railroads that a new
steel bridge is the thing we want.

Editor Creighton. of the Christian
Appeal, is pouring some hot shot in
to some of those in authority in his
church. He seems to be after the
presiding elders and the method of
raising their salaries by the per cen
tage plan. He says: "The bold, dar
ing, soulless, cold blooded practices
that characterize that office, and have
characterized it for years past would
make the world wonder at the sub
missiveness of Methodist preachers
and laymen in South Carolina." Pret
ty plain talk.
He is also after what he terms the
questionable methods of raising mon
ey for the church by hot suppers,
grab bags and such like methods. On
this subject the. Appeal says:
"The unsavory character of such
things very often contribute largely
to swelling the volume of the receipts
to the shame of the church and the
reproach of her members. Extortion
and evea fraud have been changed at
oyster suppers and grab-bag perfor
mances. When Christian people un
der pretense of furnishing an oyster
supper sell three oysters for twenty
five cents the charge is sustained, the
case is fully made Out. But it is for
the church and will be used for a
good purpose, and, therefore, the end,
justifies this very questionable means.
If the church is going to play the roll
of sneak thief or highwayman she.
can do it on a higher and at least an1
undisguised scale, if not she should
separate herself from those who would
veneer and use for good purposes dis
honest methods. We say dishonest,
because if similar practices were pur
sued by business men they would be
roundly and soundly denounced as
dishonest, and we do not think that
their character can be changed by
simply employing them in the inter
est of the church."
We are inclined to agree that such
methods of raising money for the
church are not always th wisest or
The Appeal also thinks that the
matter of societies is overdone and
that more good could be accomplish
ed by working in the church as a
member of the church than by so
many societies. Christian giving
should be a part of Christian duty.

"Good citizens make good laws,'but
no law can make good citizens." That
is a good text on which to deliver an
oration. It is an oration in itself.
Here is another one: "No govern
men:,. city, state or nation. was ever
better than the people made it. or
worse than they suffered it to be
come." It is the people that make
a state and it is great or otherwise ac
cording to the character of the indi
vidual citizens who compose it.

Of the ballot and the responsibility of

The Millennium Coming.
Judge Dunne. the newly elected
mayor of Ciicago, is nothing if not
:horough-going. He has been elected
on a municipal ownership platform
that calls for quick action; and he
says that if the traction interests re
fuse to part with their property at
what he considers a fair valuation,
the proper:y will be confiscated.
Judge Dunne has gone to Newl
York to set the east afire with the
Chicago idea. In a speech before
the Municipal Ownership League of
that city last evening he announced:
"Before long Chicago will not on-1
ly have government railways, but
will operate its own telegraph and
telephone systems, and sooner or lat
er every public utility."
Al:ruria is to come with a ven
geance in Chicago. If the millenium
hangs back, it is to -be dragged into
the present by the hair of its head.
The golden age, of which the poets
fable, is not of the past. nor is it of
the distant future; it is of the near,
the immediate, future; it will come
first to Chicago, and its aureate splen
dor will be radiated therefrom to ut
termost ends of the earth. If it re
fuses to come. Judge Dunne is going
after it with a club and bring it in.
We are not so sure that public
,wnership of public utilities is the
es: and it would not be surprising if
hicago should find that out after the
an is tried. If "pulls" and politics
"uld be kept out of them and em
oes were promoted under a civil
rice examination and given posi
ions on account of efficiency it would
Sanother matter but that is almost
ipossible under our system of gov
rnment. South Carolina's experi
ient of government ownership and
overnment control has not been en
irely satisfactory to a large portion
f her people.
The times are not yet entirely ripe
for the golden age described by Ed

service than when owned by private

This is the fortieth anniversary of
the surrender of Lee's ragged regi
