The Race For Governor.
Many newspapers in the State con
tinue to nominate Governor Heyward
for a third term when he has an
nounced in the most emphatic man
ner that he will not again seek that
office. He has made a good gover
ior, he has been clean and conscien
tious and honest in every public act.
and he desires to go back to his farm.
He has served his people faith-fully
and well, he has won their plaudits.
and he will gracefully step aside to
make may for the army which is
fighting and scrambling for the chair.
There is no rule or law against a
third term, and if Governor Heyward
wants it the chances are that he can
get it. The Newberry Herald and
News took issue last week with the
nomination, but its reasons are
evident. There are three candi
dates from Newberry. Hub Evans,
Cole. L. Blease and A. C. Jones. The
Herald and News said yesterday that
it has a (habit of standing up for New
berry men, which means that it will
undoubtedly support one of the trio
from its county. That. ni c)f e. is
its privilege, but the record next year
will show that all three of the New
berry candidates were left at the post.
It is hardly the proper thing for a
newspaper to advocate tNle election of
a man to public office just because he
happens to. come from its territory,
unless his election should give satis
faction to the state at large. That
sort of business is calculated to weak
en the newspaper in question. And
besides, there is more than one coun
ty in South Carolina.-Greenville
The News misquotes The Herald
and News as well as misinterpreti
our motives. We have no objection
to Gov. Heyward. He ha made a
good governor. We did not say we
would not support Gov. Heyward.
We said that we did not believe h:e
would let his name be used for a third
term and that there were others in
South Carolina who were able and'
honorable and who would like to have
the honor. We did not take issue
with the suggestion because threre
were candidates from Newberry. As
a matter of fact The Herald and News
has not taken up the cudgels for any
of the candidates and because we said
it had been our rec'ord to stand up
for Newberry men it does not mean
"undoubtedly" that we will support
one of the Newberry men. WVe said
this in a former issue of this paper to
which the News refers: "The Herald
and News has not yet espoused the
cause of any of the candidates." The
News is correct that it is not right
for a newspaper to support a man
simply because he comes from a par
ticular section or county. All things
being equal' we would give the prefer
ence to our own county man, but that

ability and character for th~e posi

are "peerless patriots, who hold
principle above party. manhood above
money, character above cash, and
patriotism above place." But that is
not always he criterion, wve regret to
We notice in 4 correspondence
from Washing:on that there is talk
of reducing tihe rural delivery 'ser
vice. That the expenses of the gov
emnent are beyond the income and
that there is necessity to cut .some
where. This should be the last place
to make a cut in expenses if by that
it becomes necessary to reduce this
service. There is not::mg that ha
been done for the country that has
done su much for the countrv. that is
of so much benefit to people as :he es
tablishmet of r::ral deliverv th

the least. Rather it should' be ex
tended until every family mn the
country 'has its mail declvered. Tall.
about education, it is one of the best
educators and school masters in any
community, in that it encourages peo
ple to take newspapers and to read
have the papers delivered while the
news is still news. It adds to the
comfort and convenience of country
life and thereby makes it more de
sirable. Any thing that contributes
t) making life in the rural districts
more pleasant is a good thing and
should be encouraged and enlarged
rather than reduced and curtailed.
The service has ge-.wn most mar
velewslv which is evidence of its I)P
t!arity. Six years ag-o the appropria
tion by congress for this service was
S340.ooo. The last congress appro
priated $40.000,000. Illinois has 2.450
routes,. the largest of any state. The
average cost, it is stated. of these
routes is $695-which requires for this
state alone $1,692.750. New York is
nexi with 1,6. In South Carolina
we have only 435. Congressman Aik
en. it is stated in this correspondence
to which we refer. has secured the
establishment of 109. In Newberry
we have about 22. If there should be
any reduction of this service the peo
ple in tie country districts would
