AS 7O REQUEST BOOKS.
"Not at all. We do not condone
the violation of law in any respect"
says the Tlerald and News: 'bit it is
very evident that it is trying to "tpul
back", against those who av tryng
to have the law enfored. It a%xs
that b0canlso one law is violate, an
other should be treated the "me way
It. is like the "Marlboro Man" who
did not believe in trying to n moe
evil out till all can be rAnted togethe.
The Herald and News avsoanos
that after a law has luen violated
for a long time, Ihe violAlicn should
not he stopped. ior any "hnmah
play" made about it "at this late
day." Il other worss, wrong he

uenuc that is becomes a habit,
'Tlhe Heralid is probably aware that
atteitionl has been Called to the vio
lation of the request book law be
fore this late day. We condemned
the violation a nuimber of ines, as
far back as 0overnor Me':Sweenev's
admillistration, when the editor -of
Trle Herald and News wos the gov
ernor's private secretary. We did
not get enough help, however, to
raise a '1'hurrah play'' sufficient to
cause the administration to have the
,rite failure to use request books
is by no means the gravest wrong
that has been committed in the name
of the dispensary; but The Herald
and News picks out and attempts to
smoothe over one of the smaller evils
of the system, and wolld lead its
readers to infer that '' that is all that
is wrong with the dispensary,'' and
that ''that. is all that the investiga
tioll ealn accomplish.'' How about
the label deal, and the glass eon
Irac ts, .and the liqu1or illeg.alv
bonght ? Does The IHerald and News
think that. too m1iuchi noise is being
made about, them, at. this late (lly,
since graft has existed so long anid
has not been1 punished yet ?
The Herald and News kind of
whitewashing is what has permitted
the violation of the law so long, and
scared the public conscience - into
thinking that it is all right to display
the laws you do iot like.-Pee Dee
The Herald and News has said
nothing to indicate that it wolid ap
prove any whiewashing of any kind
and the Advocate knows it. Yes, you
can go back as far as Gov. Tillman's
ahninistration and you will find that
the request books were not used and
everybody knew it. There was no
need for an investigation. comimit tee
to find ouit this. We repeat if that
is all that is wrong with thle manage
imiint , thlen thle dispiensa ry is in good
The point we made was not thant it
was right to v'iolate thle provision of
the dispensary as to request hooks,
bg~t as everybody knew tis pr.ovision
of t he law had never beenI eniforced
that it waIs a waste of. time anid
energy for the commtittee to 'he mak-I
ing any " 'hurrah '' shout it and itf
that wuas all they could find wrong
wuithI the managenient the institution
was in good shaSpe. The commiii~on
was not appoinitedl to find out what
everybody knew and( could prove. Let
the committee tell us about the label
deal and the glass contract and liqour
illegally bought and if the Advocate
hats any evidence along fliat line let
it tell the committee what it knows.
The Herald and News makes no
charge, because it .has no prooft.
What we wuanit is the evidence. There
hias been a sufficiency of cha rges.

AS TO SOHEDULES.
The Columbia Chamber of Commer
ce and the Oreenville News are now
advocating the change of schedule
which was agreed upon by the rail
road olicials and the railroad cori
missioners at a meeting held on the
16th of March, but which has since
been called off. If these two in.
Iluences had been brought to bear
when the matter was up, the prob
ability is we would have had the
schedule in operation today. We are
gladl, however, they have conme in
even at this late day, for the reason
that it is our' purpmose to keep ill this
fight until we get thle change of
schedule thait waus agrceed uponi at thle
dhate muent ioned beca use we believe
such a schmedule will be for the best
interest of the railroad and the ma
jority of the pecople who live along
the line bet ween G reeniville and Co
lumbia. We ate satisfied that there
will be lit tle d(itficulty in securing a
majority~ of thle p)eople along th liee
in thle endlorsement of such a schedule.
We have never understood why the
p)eop)le of Columbia were not more
active in securing this, morning train
inito their city. It certainly would
be to the advantage of the business
men of the city, because it would give
peopleC for at good wvays out of the
city ani olportunity to go there and
to spendl several hours wvithiout hay
ing to sptend the night.
The people of Lauirens, by being a
little too fast, have p)ostponled prob
utble indefInitely a passenger train to
Columbia on t hat roamd by asking Mr.
('hildls to delay his mornting freight
out of' Cohainhin for a coupjle of hours
ini order to ge't t he Columbia State.
I Ie hdl deccicded to make his thirough
treighit into Columbia inm the morning
andc omit in the afternoon a passenger
train, b)ut just a day or two before
this change was miade a committee
from Laurens went dowvn asking the
o)ther change, which gave Mr. Childs
an excuse to defer the change which
he had already decided upon on the
ground that he would make both of
them at the same time. If they had
just waited until we had gotten the
first, theni they might have gotten both
However, wve will hope to get these
changes made, and if we get our peo
ple here to sustain us in our fight, we
shall be glad to take it up' in a ss
temautic way with the other towns
along both roads wihieh are interested.

Spiders That Ohange Colors.
An interesting instance of color
mimicry in spiders has been observed
in the south of France. The spiders
of that region when in search of prey
hide in the convolvulus flowers. It
has been noticed that a white variety
of spider frequented the white flow
ers. A greenish colored variety made
the green flowers his home, and a pink
one lived principally in the pink flow
ers. The colors of the three varieties
were at first supposbd to be perma
nient, but it has recently been discov
ered that the color of any one of
these spiders changes within a few
(lays if the insect he plavcel in the
convolvulus of a different colored
flower from that which he has -been
usiig as his home. Four spiders
pink, white, green anl yellow in color
-were all put in a box together, and
within three days all were white.
