Who is its Candidate?
The Newberrv Herald and New
"In reply to the Laurens Advertiser
we do not believe Gov. Heyward
would permit his name to be used as a
candidate for governor for a third
term. The Herald and News has a
record for standing up to Newberry
men when the question is a choice
of men. In this case it'is not a ques
tion of preferring some other man
to Heyward because we know Gov.
Heyward to be a most excellent gen
tleman and we know that he ha
made a good record as governor. but
there are others in South Carolina
who could fill the executive chair and
we do not think Gov. Heyward cares
to succeed himself for a third term.
The Herald and News has not vet
espoused the cause of any c ~ the can
didates. We want to hear and knon
where they stand on certain ques
tions and then it is time enough."
Of course no man or thing. not
even, The Advertiser, can tell from
the above what or where The New
berry Herald and News is. It ap

Base Ball is Not Gambling.
* In a sermon at Newberry the oth'
er day a minister said that we should
deplore the enthusiastic interest in1
base bail because the sport encour
ages the gambling fev'er. He was
sincere, of course. in what he ex
pressed. hut he seems to be ignorant.
There are thousands of good people
in this country who love the game.
but wvho never think of making wag
ers on the results. They love the
sport because it is clean and exciting
-thev care little for the gambling.
No and then we will find in all com
munities a certain elemen: which wvill
bet on aything. They may or may
not be demoralized by the evil, yet
as -a geenral thing those of us who
are familiar with the conditions know
that the betting is at a minimum. Tt
is different with 'horse racing because
that is strictly a gamblin-.g sport. It
is a sport for gamblers. w;hen base
ball is not, and the follower of the
turf, whose money is made and lost
in the ring and the pool rooms, is
*not facinated by contests on the die
mond. They are too commonplace
and tame. The turf plunger will ,not
'deal wvith the less attractive game.
while the real baseball thoroughbred
is not going to ruin his enjoyment by
thinking of the loss which it may
bring him. Out of the thousands of
-women who watch the players, cob
lege and professional, few risk mon
ey. and if they wager a box of candy
or a pair of gloves it is not calculated
to lowver their standing in socwesy.
even if that proceeding should be de
If we are to be deprived of this
pastime what will we have left? Base
ball can thrive and prosper without a
single bet. It does not depend upon
the gambling feature for its support.
It can live without it. it does live
without any gambling side lines, and
it is not right to preach against that
which is harmless and wvholesomie and
which brings so much pleasure to
men and women and children. Some
of the ministers of Greenv'ille attend
the games. and while they are more
