Governor Heyward has decided to
let .the constables remain in Green
'ville and Spartanburg and we pre
sume will let them remain in Ander
son ;also. It seems that in these coun
ties the opinion of the people is di
vided on the wisdom of the governor's
action, some of them holding that the
law can be a:s well enforced without
the constables as with them while
others hold t-he contrary view.
In view of the conflicting tpinions f
and -with the fact that the law is be
ing violated the governor has decided
to leave the constables in all the coun
ties now voting out the dispensary
until the legislature meets and then let 5
that body determine what shall be
done. As we understand The Brice
law it is left optional with the Cgov- C
ernor what course he shall pursue. t
The law carries with it a levy of one- "
h-alf mill tax on all the property in
the -county voting out the dispensary,
said fund to be at the disposal of -the
governor for enforcing the law in
case he deems it necessary to isend
constables in those counties but if
not the money -reverts to the county
fhst what is best to do is a puzzling c
question. We never have favored the t
state constabulary and the whole bus
iness should be abolished. If it should
become necessary' in any coun-ty to
have extraordinary help to enforce the <
law each county ought' to be left to
-arrange for it and to pay 'vhe cost.
We are satisfied that -Governor
B ey-ward is anxious 'to do .what is
right and 'best and 'probably the best I
tng for him to do is to leave the
Sconstables in the prohibition counties
- until the legislature meets as that
Sevent is so near. Then the members
of the legislature, fresh f.rom the peo- '
pIe can take .such action as to this1
mattef. as their wisdom may dictate.
Thursday of this week has been set
apart by proclamation of the presi
dent of the United States and the gov
eror of this state as a day of thanks
vigand prayer. All public offices
" will be closed and all business sus
~pended. In Newberry the joint ser
-vc will be held in the opera house.
It is right and proper that we
should give thanks to the giver of all
-good for the blessings 'we enjoy as a
' people, as a nation and as individuals.
Thanics for the blessings of health
and strength, f'or the yield of the field
and the general good will whi'ch pre
vails among all our people.
But amidst all our 'happiness and
gpood cheer we shou.ld not forget the
fatherless. One of the best and most
suibstantial 'ways of showing our grat
iti.de is by helping those who have
'been bereft of father and mother.
As ye 'd'id unto thie least of these. ye
did it unto me.
The ope,ra house should be filled
on Thursday and every one - should
go prepared to 'help the orphans.

no thing ready for trial yesterday, and

no necessity for extra terms and spe

The story of -his .doings du.ring -the

antry during 'the rest of the war. It

~ladly gave up 'a part of his hard

s services in Florence when 'he heard
hat Federal prisoners 'were escaping
