AS TO SALARES.
Gov. Ansel in an interview, sa
that the salary of the governor shou
be increased, i .id he also wants
new mansion built. In both of the
propositions Gov. Ansel is entire
correct. The fact of the business
that all of our salaries are too lo

other states, and he finds that t
salary of the state superintendent
education in South Carolina is le
than in any other state. Expenses
all kinds -bave been increased ve
much since the present salaries we
adjusted, and they were too low
Of course many men could affo
to take a position like that of GC
Ansel if it cost them a little mo
than the salary, because there is i
ambition to be gratified, but even
this case, the governor gets $1,100
year more than other state office
and has his house to live in witho
cost and has now his fuel furnis
ed to him. In the other state offic
the occupant, we should thin
.would barely get back out of his sz
ary the' necessary expenses of li
ing. The same may be said of mei
bers of the legislature. Their pay
$4 per day, and if they live respe<
ably at a 'first class hotel, as th
ought to do, their hotel bills aloi
are $3.50 per day,. and it, therefoi
makes:it an expensive luxury to be
member of the legislature.
It is no answer to these sugge
tions to say that there would be mi
found aspiring to these positions e
en at the present pay. We have r
-doubt there would be candidates f
any and all of these offices even
'the pay were less than it is at pre
-ent; but a. great sta:te like Sou
Carolina should not expect its pu
lie servants to discharge the duti
of their respective offices witho
treasonable compensation, sufficiet
that they might live conifortably o'
of the salaries.
As to the new mnansion, there et
be little question in the mind of ai
citizen of this state, who has seen t]
present building, that there is net
of a new one.

sort of a platform he would bui

strong believer in government regn

1:.aIda.i'TIN AN'.&D M..SL
V_ Sintendent of Educatioll . B.
Martin is not pleased evidently with
- the action of Gov. Ansel in appoint
ing members of the state board of
education. We would like to suggest
that M. Martin should not make
such a display of himself and of his
YS temper, because it is not a good ex
id ample for the head of the education
a al interest of our great state to set
se to the other people of the state and
lY especially to the children. Now, it
is, may be that Gov. Ansel ought to have
W- consulted Mr. Martin; it may be that
,rt the appointing power in the creation
is of this state board of education
1Y should have been in Mr. Martin, as
RY the superintendent of education, but
to somehow the legislature in its wis
dom has placed the power upon the
,r- governor and the responsibility rests
ig with him; it may be that all the
in members of the state board of edu
e cation should be teachers, but some
of how the legislature did not see pro
ss per to so fix it in the law, which
of makes this board. The thing for Mr.
rY Martin to do is to have the legisla
re ture remedy the defect in the law, if
at it be defect, and take away from the
governor the right of apopintment
d and give it to the superintendent of
re We do not happen to know Mr.
tn Rice, who has been appointed, but we
in do not see why he is ineligible be
a cause of the fact that he is a lawyer,
rs and unless the legislature, or some
ut power that has the making of this
h- board, should state that it should be
es composed of teachers, we cannot un
k, derstar d why it is sueh a crime for a
L- lawyer to be on the board. There
- are many lawyers, who are fully
n- competent to discharge the duties
1s which devolve upon tne board of edu
t- cation, and there are many lawyers,
ly also, who are as much or more in
e terested in the education of the peo
e, ple of this state as some teachers.
a In fact, it would seem to us that it
would be wise to have on the board
- one or two men, who are not teach
ears, because the tendency of a
teacher is to become theoretical and
0 the counsel and advice of a practical
>rman of affairs and one who is inter
ested in education, it would seem,
s- would be a valuable addition to the
h state board of education.
The comparison, as to the composi
e tion of the supreme court, we do not
think holds good in the matter of a
tstate board of education. Of course
tit is right and proper that there
should be some teachers on the board,
nand if we are not mistaken, the pres
ent board has already one or two
ed members, who are not teachers, and
djust why Mr. Martin should have
such antipathy to lawyers, we can
not understand; but certainly we do
not see where any good can come from
such outbursts as Mr. Martin's let
Ln ter to Gov. Ansel.
Ln Mr. Martin anpiounces that he will
al not be a candidate for reeleotion, and
it it is stated that if the office were ap
-k pointive, he would resign.
I- It is unfortunate that there should
re be such disagreement between two
- heads of the government, but we do
re not believe that Mr. Martin was jus
re tified in writing such a letter as he
