LABOR LAW VOID.
State Supreme Court Sitting En
Bank Declares Law to Be
The .judiciary of the State, sitting I
en bane, has declared unconstitution
al the labor contract law. This is in
effect the same decision rendered by
Judge Brawlev. of the. Federai Court. a
several months 'go, and puts an end a
to any speculation as to the validity 1
of the statute. The court was divid
ed on tie que.tioni before it. The
majority opinion was written by As-r
- sociate Justice Woods and was cItnl
eurred in by Chief Justice Pope. Cir
enit .J.udges Wat s. Ga,t. Wilson.
Gary and Meminger. as to the gen
eral contents of the opinion. and by
Judge Dantzler as to the result. The
minority opinion was written by As
sociate Justice Jones. and was eon
eurred in by Circuit Jud re Klugh. b
Prince, and Hydrick.
Associate Justice, Gary filed a sep
arate dissent as follows: "I di sent
on the ground that constitutionality
of the statute is not before the court
on habeas corpus proceedings."
The case was argued by Mr. W. H. K
Parker. of Charleston, representing tl
the attorney general. and by Herbert
and Benet, of Columbia. as attor- a
nays for Jaek Holiman, the old negro tl
who was arrested for violation of the
labor contract law.
Gov. Johnson's Platform. fi
Washington Post. el
If tre Democratic party is sincere
in its desire to seek a Democrat, pure
and undefiled, to whom it can offer 0:
the leadership of the party, what ?l
fault can it find with Gov. Johnson, s'
of Minnesota ? That able executive f<
of a single State is rapidly becoming
a national figure through the sheer t
force of his democratic principles t
and good common sense. What other
man so completely embodi"es in his
bwn politicaa views the modern prin
eiples of the Democratic party? In g
Jim there is no taint of populism, no
tendency to demagoguery, no inelina
tion to cling steadfastly to some par. g
ticular, pet idea whieh he wishes to
force the party, willy-nilly, to swal
low. But neliter is he a sort of po
litical bell buoy shifting his base ac
cording to the roll of the waves. He '
/ has come out frank'ly and stated the t~
platforma on which he stands in no I:
equivocal terms. How .does it com- 1
Spare with the ideas of modern De- r
fFirst, Gov. Johnson believes in a Ii
Stariff reform that will elive all indus
tries an equal chance. That is a Dle- t4
moeratie principle as old as the pa.r-'
ty. Next. hre belietes emphatieally b
that the States alone, not the Federal s
*government, should have ths power to 1i
-remedy the corporate and other abus
as from which they individually suf
fer. and that ea4h State ought to
have power to punish the corpora
tions offending within its own lines.I
The doctrine of States' rights was
the very milk on which the party
was niourished in its infancy.
Furthermore, he advocates income:
a,nd inheri.tance taxes. and declares
.against imvperialism. While asserting
that plundering corporations ought to
be ceceked. this safe and sane De
moerat would not at-taek merely to
destroy them nor to prosecute merely
, to 1-eralize confiscation. But he is
i<tchly in favor of legislation that.
will absolutely prevent stock-water

What safe~r and saner rdatform

present-day Democrats? Here isa a

sive ideas of government. He has no
particular personal ideas or hobbies
or interests to represe.nt. He pras
ents no inflamnmatory reforms: he

institutions that already exist. Canl
the party find any sounder presiden
tia timber in its ranks ? Is there one
better fitted to appease the conserva'
tive ranks of the~ party, yet who could

SThe Maintenance of Earth Roads.
We may recognize the value of
hard and durable roads in al.l parts
of the country, tbut still the fact re
mains that for a long .time to come
the majority of the roads will be comn
posed of earth. Furthermore, in about
ine months out of the year, the
~earth- road, if properly -eared for, is
-easonably satisfactory. For many
agriculturail districts, it is the only
oad at present available. Hence,1
'ecommunities should get them
eves seriously to work to learn the
st methods of maintaining earth
ads and of getting the maximum
r'ie from them. Prosperity comes
to the country to a great extent
trough the prosperity of the far
ers. This fact strongly suggests
* importance o'f giving thre earth
u11 1.1 its localion, dl1-aila' . r(o11
rl'tlon alld maintenance.
An earth road composed of water
>ldin;; soil should be exposed to the
in and air as freely as possible, as
>mparison betiween the shaded and
innv lrt:ions of such a road will
rsily i:ldivate. This should be ac- I
opl;il iy ciearing a. sufficint
uouut of trees and undergrowth
wv: r t he road. It must be re
l:...ve..ver, that sandy and
avel ro ads require moisture, and
t!:e. ecases some shade should be
tained. Furthermore, trees are
mneficial along river banks and on
eep grades subject to washing.
1rai:ia9e is one of the most im
ortant points to consider in con
?ctioll with an earth road. The ma
>rity of earth roads in all mountain
s and hilly districts have too much
rainage. Occasionally a road will
? found with five ditches, three in
le middle made by the horses' hoofs
ad by wheels of the vehicles, and
vo on thz sides. All well-construct
1 earth roads are supposed to have
o more than two ditches, one on
tch side of the traveled roadiway.
eep the water out of the middle of
ie road by giving it a crown of ele
ition in the center of 7 1-2 inches
sove the top of the inner slope of
le ditch for a 20-foot road, and
here the hills are a little st:eep
..ke the crown 10 inches. With a
-own of about 1 inch to the foot
-om the center to the sides, the dit
ies which are often built across the
>ad on steep grades to deflect tha
ater will not be needed. Instead
carrying water across the road in'
>en ditches, tile or concrete drains
iould, if possible, be provided. They
iould have sufficient capacity and
dl to carry the maximum amount of
ater that is expected' to flow
rough them at any one time. The
Spacity , is increased in proportion
the fall or grade; for instance,
-inch pipe laid on a one per cent
rade will carry 1,800 gallons per
Linute, while the saame pipe laid on
2 per cent grade will carry 2,500
allous per mimte. Furthermore, a
ilvert laid flat will soon fill up,
hile one having a good incline will
eep itself clear.
In the maintenance of an r
>ad, avoid the mistake of changing
ie natural order of things. Natural
rthe soil is fonnd on top aind the
ay on the bottom. If this order is
mersed in constructing a road, t.he
asult wil:l be less satisfactory than
the soil be left at the top of th3
ad, for soil makes a better surfiaea
i a road than clay. If the road bed
largely clay to start .with, it will
