The City Beautiful.
Mayor Speer of Denver has made
some suggestions to his people, which
are issued in the form of a procla
mation, urging them to clean the foul
places and Eo assist in the movement
for the City Beautiful. Every town
has its unsightly and its unseemly
things which mar and blot and spoil
the picture. We have them here in
Greenville, and we have people who
'have worked faithfully in the past to
be rid of Them. Mayor Speer has
fixed one day in each year for a gener
al household cleaning. We are told
that 'Ehe results were marvelous. The
citizens, taking hold of the sugges
tion, went to work with a will, and
lawns were cleaned, shade trees were
trimmed, houses .painted, fences re
paired, and, in fact, a thousand and
one things were done to improve the
appearance of the city. Prizes were
offered for the most attractive down
town store fronts, for the f-inest flow
er garden, fZr the best kept lawn,
and for the m6st attractive vacant lot.
While the spirit was moving the
people Mayor Speer issued 'che fol
"If your store front, residence or
fence is dingy, order it painted.
"If your sidewalk, gate or fence
!needs repairing, fix it.
*Fv "If your advertising sign is old or
faded, take it down or paint it.
"Resolve never to throw paper in
PIN 'e streets.
"Take all dandelions out of your
lawn-they spoil its beauty.
"Destroy the young weeds that are
'starting on your property and on your
Burn all the rubbish possible-al
low no one to throw it on streets,
alleys or vacant lots.
"Promise not 'to spit on the side
"Organize a block improvement o'
ciety, and allow no weeds to grow on
sidewalk area or vacant property in
your block.. .
'Ask your milkman, groceryman
and expressman to have their wagons
"Irrespective of the size, of your
' 'house, make your lawn 'the finest.
"Illuminate the front of your 'store
in the 'business sectrion.
'Every effort put for-th or dollar
spent to improve our city's appear
ance -will be returned two-fold."
Why can't we do as much in
4: Greenville? We have pulled down
= the signs on Main street and wg have
left 'the awnings to make people stoop
and dodge when they were not an
monyed by the signs in the air. Still,
it was proper to have them down,
biut that was the least offensive thing
in the sight of the eye, for Green
ville today is notr as beautiful as it will
be when the citizens profit by the
good lesson in Denver.-Grenville
Tihe .addrest of M'ayor Speer con
tains g'ood advice for the citizens of
any communit'y. We would be glad
to see this spirit of making The city
beautiful take possession of our
mayor and the entire' population of
the city. There may be some who
cannot make the impr'ovements they
would like 'to, but a great many are
amply able to do, it and if it shoul-d
get rightly started tihe spirit would be
contagi-ous. Some of the stores 'have
already caught the contagion. If the
Newberry hotel, fsor instance, were re
Spaited on; the second story to cor
re'spond with the touches put on 'by
i:. the occupants of the .stores it would
Cadd greatly to the appearance of
things in that secti n.
We were in a little towxn in Ca!i
fornia, some little while ago of some
100,000 peCople ca!!ed Alameda. They
had no mayor. but a promotion com
mittee and if anybo dy reported a
place that needed attentinon the owner
was no:ified and if he failed to do the
work it was done by this committee
and the bill sent the owner. It was
ione of the p)ret:iest and cleanest towns
we saw in a .iourney 0f some 8.000
miles. If we would look a little more
after the cleanliness and health of
this ci-rv and not try so rnuch to regu
late the conduct of the individuals we
would be better -off morally and
Let us all go to work for the city
beautiful in physical appearance and
by 'our example and influence make it
beautiful morally. We can do more
in this way than we can by statutes
The editorial from the Baptist
Press of Greenwood, which we re
produce today, is interesting in more
than one particular. The Baprist
Press calls -on Mr. McCullough of
Greenville to make the race for gov
ernor and it apparently endorses a
prohibition camapign,- or at least a
prohibition candidate for governor.
We may not agree with the Baptist
Press in general, but wish -o com
mend its attitude regarding the sale
of whiskey in those counties where
prohibition would be a farce; few pro
hibition advocates are so practical, the
reason, perhaps, why there are so few
prohibition laws passed. The State be
lieves that in some counties a pro
iibitive law would be helpful; in oth
er counties such a law would be harm
ful. It is for that reason we wish
the people in every county to have an
opportunity of expressing their pref
Exactly. That,has been the posidon
of The Herald and News for many
years. Let each county regulate th-is
question just as the people of that
particular county desire t? regulate it.
In most counties prohibition will be
a failure bur if the people desire to
have it by a free and full expression
of their desire at. the ballot box let
them have it, but every one knows
that in the elections we ,have had in
the counties this year that the vote
cast against the dispensary was not a
prohibition vote. A great many peo
ple who favor license voted against
the dispensary and many who favor
the dispensary system voted against
it because they believe it has not been
properly run. You want first to rid
the state of the state dispensary and
thin let. the people say what they
want under the constitution-license,
prohibition or dispensary and leave
the matter of deciding it to the coun
If the prohibitionists undertake to
put out a sta're ticket and to make a
state fight with the personnel of a
ticket they will not win. It will be
considered a fight for office by .cer
tain men. The legislature is the place
to have the men. The members of the
legislature are the ones to change the
law. In some counties prohibition
may work alright and in some they
are going to have whiskey and thie
only. question to decide is the best
mode of 'handling it and regulating
T'he sales from 'the state dispensary
for the last quarter were $635,314.42
for the local dispensaries for the same
quarter were $722,837.55. It is stated
that the increase in sales in the lo
cal dispensaries for the quarter over
he same period last year were $93,
960.99. It is significant that the sales
should increase when the dis
pensary has been vdoted out
in several counties. The peo
ple must be drinking more whs
key. It is a very puzzling question.
We are satisfied that the way to stop
people from drinking whiskey is not
'by prohibition laws but by training
