TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1905.
There seems to be an educational
tidal wave sweeping over the state
at this time. All of the colleges and
high. schools report an increased in
terest and the prospect of large en
rolment. At Clemson, where no effort
is made to secure students -868 ap
plications were tiled by young men
who desire to enter that institution.
All of these were from South Caro
lina except 48 who were from other
states. The dormitories will only ac
commodate 624 boys when every bed
is taken. This is the statement of
President Mell. Nearly 2oo South
Carolina boys are turned away from
this institution this year because there
is not dormitory room. The teach
ing force and other anpliances are am
ple for these other :.,) South Carolina
boys who are knocking for admission
to this college. They are entitled tc
receive its tuition as much as those
who are admitted, but when the dor
mitories are all occupied there must
be a stop. The 'State's duty is plain.
More dormitories should be provid
ed. The State is making no appro
priation -o this college, but the other
sources of income are sufficient tc
provide these additional dormitories
and they no doubt will be provided
if the policy of the legislature was
fixed so that there would be no dan
ger of interference. We cannot see
how the legislature can afford co in
terfere with an institution where 8oc
young men are knocking for admis
At Newberry college the president
states that the applications for enrol
ment this year are four times as large
as last year and that last year was
high water mark. There has usually
been from 40 to 50 new students each
year. According to the forecast of
the president the new boys will num
ber from i6o to 200. which is more
than the total enrolment usually.
And so it is at Winthrop. More
than can be accommodated and many
young ladies turced away. These are
institutions that are having overflows.
At Clemson the estimate was correct.
The institution has opened. The
other two open inl a fewv days. The
other colleges in the state report hine
prospects, but no overflows.
The common schools should flour
isn, because where there is an awak
ening for higher education the com
mon schools are the most prosper
ous. We hope that will be the case
in our own state.
The weaeher continues dry, hot and
uncomfortable. Those who have
waited for rain to sow their turnips
have been disappointed.

Mr. Daniel is commandant of cadets

five are from South Carolina and all

Mr. Daniel says that since the burn

Staunton about a year ago. large new
1uildings have gone up to replace
them, and that the coming year wil!

Gov. Heyward Will Not Request
Members State Board to Resign.
The State of yesterday prints the
following statement from Gov. Hey

of directors of the dispensary:
"I have nothing to say in reference

that I will do my duty as I see it."
Continuing. Gov. Heyward said.:
"The legislature appointued a commit

dispensary and this committee has
been probing for facts, though the
work is as yet unfinished. It is not
my purpose, nor do I intend, to be so
unfair as 'to remove the men elected
to these positions in the dispensary

on my part would be based on rumors
