PETITION BEING. O;ROULATEDi
Asking An Election On the Dispen

Petitions to the number of about
tiwenty have been put in circulation
seeking sigiatures, for the purpose of
ordering all election on the dispen
sary in this county under the provis
ions of the Carey-Cothran bill.
There will be little doubt that a
sufficient number of signatures will
be secured to require the 'supervisor
to order the election, as it takes only
one-fourth of the qualified electors
of the county to order it.
Our position is, that when we had
the election in 1905, we agreed to
hold no other election for four years,
and while of cotirse the legislature
had the right to change that law as it
has donle, we ar1e still of the opinion
that we are morally bound to stand
by the agreement. entered into at that
time, yet, as has already been sated
in The Herald and News, if we are
to have an election next year, it is
just -ae well to have it this year, when
there will be no other issue and the
forces ean be Joilled on a straight
fighIt for the -dispensary or prolhibi
If a sullicient number of signatures
is sclred to the petitions, the lee
tion will be ordered for the latter
part of August so that there may be
time to have the questioir discussed

their work, and,everybody will have

THBIR PAY INORBASBED.
Rural Mail arriers To Receive Nine
In conilection with the increase in
the pay of the rural inail. carriers as
agreed upon by the conferees of the
house and senate at Washington the
Atlanta Journal has an editorial on
the subject -which will bear repeti
tion. , ,
The rural free delivery system has
been the greatest blessing to the
greatest number of people of any
thing that has been. done by- the gov
ernment since it was founded. It
has made country life more desirable
and pleasant. What we need now
in this section of the country is to do
some6thlln.g that will improve the con
dition of our public highways. We
need roads. Only by getting good
can we enhance the value of rural
property and induce our people to re
main on the farm. With telephone
and free delivery of mail if all had
inproved public highways no one
would want to give up life in the
rural districts for the crowded cities C
and towns. Thien would your high
schools be practicable for the coun
try, then could you have your church
es and Sunday schools well attended,.
then could the ladies go oftener to
visit their neighbors and you would
have social intercourse.
[t is well the pay of the rural car
rier is to he increased. It should
be sulicient to secure the best class
iln fact the pay should be at least
$1200 per year. Each one should
have a .-uood turti out and two horses.
The following is the editorial of
''-The conferees of the house and
senate have, agreed to the amend
mieit to the postal appropriation bill
increasing the salary of rural mail I
carriers to $900 a year.
'Al effort wis made inl the house
to place it at $840, but it was oppos- I
ed in that body by Congressman
(friggs, and ill tie upper- house Senl
ator Clay, who was a member of the
conference committee, succeeded ill
restoring the larger amount and as
such it has practically been adopted.
''Senator Clay has been the per- I
sistent and consistent friend of the
rural mail carriers and has done a
great deal to perfect and encourage
the system. He states that within
tihe next five years this rural free
delivery system will have been com
pleted, which is to say it will have
been extended to every part of the
country iwhere it can be established
and sustained with advantage. He
adds that the United States now has
the )est postal service in the world.
'The growthi of the rural free de
livery system within the past few
years has been little short of mar
velous. It has made country life a
hlundred fold more conivenienlt and
attractive and thlereby hlas increased
tile value of prop)erty to an inesti
mable degree. There can be no doubt
whlen all is said and done, thlat the
free, wholesome life of tIhe country
gentleman, when it is sup)plemenlted
with all the little conveniences.whlichi
mean so muchl in thle aggregate, is
the ideal life, and there is 1no reason
why it shlould nlot be enjoyed to'thle
highest degree here inl the south
where we have so nmany natural ad
''The personnel of the rural mail
carriers counts for a great deal in
the b)uilding up of tihe system and it
is in reality excellkn-t economy to
make tile salary of tile position. such
as to attract good amnd emeient men.
''They hlave many hlardships to unl-]
dergo. 'Pie highway fo' themn is not
always a turn-pike, much less a prime
r'ose path, and they have to b)rave
the elements whether the wind be
north or, wvest. As a class they are
aumng the most faithful and intelli
gent in the government service, andl
it is only rigzht and proper that they
'should receive tihe increase inl salary
which has been accorded them"
