E. H. AULL, EDITOR.
'Entered at the Postoffice at New
berry, S. C.. as 2nd class matter.
Tuesday, January 18, 1910.
The Gaffney Ledger and the Cher
okee News are throwing bouquets at
one another right along. That's right.
It is nice for brethren to dwell to
gether in love.
Somebody has introduced a bill in
the legislature to prevent boys un
ader eighteen from frequenting pool
rooms. That is a good bill an
Editor Appelt, of the Manning
Times, prints his own picture in his
own paper. Shame on. you, Senator.
On wha.t ground do you object-to it?
If a small thing like a railroad
pass,which is accepted in exchange
for advertising space, is of sufficient
force to swerve an editor from the
line of duty, then he should not lay
himself liable.''-Greenville News.
This in regard to the position of
Editor Wallace, of the Observer. Then
the News adds: "But we don't th.ink
many South Carolina editors feel the
weight of such an influen.ce' And
in this we concur. If any of them
feel that,the acceptaice of a pass in
exchange for advertising would in-1
fluence them then they should not ae
Mr. D. H. Wiherspoon,- formerly of
Newberry county, is now the editor
of Lake Butler; (Fla.), Star. He has
but recently taken charge. The Her
old and News wishes him well. He
is a good newspaper man and has
experienea in every department.
With a'free pass in his pockets, is
the editor on the side -of the rail
roads or the people ?--Newhierry Ob
-IThat depends. If the railroads
have the cause of right and justice
'on their sid-e the editor should be oni
the side of the railroadls. On the
other haand- if right and justice are
'on the side of the people then the
.editor should be on that side. We
do ,not see how a fair exchange of
what the editor has to sell for what
the railroad has to sell should in
enee the editor against the side of
right, any more than to trade with
an ordinary individual. If the rai1
.road paid the editor in money in'
stead of transportation which siae
wouild the .editor be on? Which worJd
*exert the greater influence, money or
a pass? If one is-graft wgiy not the
Aswe see it if the 'editor~ of any
newspaper feels that the acceptane2
~of a pass from a railroad in exchange
for space will purchase his influence
as against the interests of the peo
ple then he should not make such an
arrangement. But we see no reason
why he should try to prevent some
'other editor from making such an ar
rangement. It is an insult to the
* honesty and integrity of the edito
rial profession to intimate that by
such an exchange the editor sells out
his body and soul to the railroads.
And this is our opinion of that pro
vision in the ,interstate commer-e
law. Any editor who will sell his in
fluence by exchanging space for ' a
pass could be purchased much cheap
er by the railroads for a money can
sideration. We aie not ready yet to
* believe that any of them will sell
out either for a pass or for m>uey.
Our observatio.n is that as a elass
they are about as true to the best
* interests of th~e people and sacrifica
~for the pu.bie weal as much as any
other class of citizens.
If, however, any edItor feels that
by the acceptance of .':a pass he is
selling - out to the railroads,' then he
Thould not accept it, but he should
not measure every body else by that

The report'of the legislative: com
mitte on State colege is pblish
ed. in the News and Courier of yes
terday and takes up some five col
umns. It makes interesting read
ing as to Clemson especially. It con
tai'ns a hot letter from Dr. Mell,
former president. The Herald an<
News will print the report in ful
in the next issue as it is probabli
that Clemson will be in the lime
light for some time. It is unfortu
nate that an institution; .with th
possibilities of Clemson should no
be able to go on smoothly with th
work ,before it.
Dr. Mell says, among other thing4
that the board of trustees met to,
often. There has been a genera
feeling amo-ng the friends of the in
stitution that there was too muel
trustees interference in the detail
of the management of the collegE
He enumerates the frequency o:
board meetings. Then the board ap
points special committees who havi
minute details of management t<
look after. These matters should b(
under the management of the presi
dent, and until they are it will b(
difficult to get a man who can sue
'Cessfully run the college. For
while the board even undertook tc
take part in the discipline of th(
college. Dr. Mell goes on to sho
how the board undertook the man
agement of all details pertaining t<
the running of the college.
Dr. Mell calls attention to nqpot
ism which he says is a serious draw
back to the college. On this subjec
"R. W. Simpson-Three sons-in
law on the faculty.
"W.. W. Bradley-A brother o
the faculty. s
"J. E. Wannamaker-A brothei

the station staff; a niece 'in th
office of the president; ja relative i

''Three other members of t'he co]
lege force are supposed to be relatei
to trustees by marriage, but I ai
not in possession of aceurate infor
mnation on this score."
Dr. Mell thiiks the practice
nepotism has caused much of thi
troubles and disturbances at Clemr
son during the administration of hi:
predecessors. Since the*college wa;
opened the board have' appointed
twenty-one of their relatives to im
portant positions in the college, ani
there are eleven relatives now or
the force, says Dr. Mell. During the
past eight years Dr. Mell says t'h
board~ have appointed two of theil
members to good salaried places ir

e The above statement has appeared
t in a number of daily papers. If the
e statement is true or anywhere in the
neighborhood of correct then we
pity the other counties. If Newber
ry has even one mile of maeadam
1 road except such as are macadam by
.d nature we would like to know where
1 it is. Under direction of a govern
s ment expert one mile of sand and
clay road was built but as soon as
d the expert went we went too-that is
back to the old plan of running over
the county with the chain gang
patehing here and there. That one
mile is all right so far as that
stretch of road is concerned but as
an inspiration to do more it is a
7monumental failure up to this writ-!
It is generally. understood that the
committete to investigate the State
hospital for the insane will recomi
mnd a large expenditure of money
and pos ibly the removal of the insti
tution from Columbia and the sale
of the property in the city which is
- now very valuable. * They will also
probably recommend the separation
of the races into entirely different
institutions. It would be well to have
them separated and probably secure
.cheaper property. It would mean a
large outlay of 'money but the State
is ound to care for this unfortunate
e class of her citizens.
. There are at least three members
of the 6oard of trustees of Clemson
college in the present legislature who
n ought to be able to look after the in
terests of the institution. .We re
dmember on one occasion when some
a matter came up affecting thf institu
-tion it was stated that the iiistituion
had but b-ne reptesentative ol the
-Representative Diel4's proposition
s to prevent nepotism in State colleges
S will break up, some of them if en
I forced. But then he lets them down
- easy by provdding that 'the State
I board of education may permit it. If
1 enforced it would be necessary to
a have a new boar.d at Clemson or a
a large proportion of the faculty would
: have to seek other fields.
We are no more in favor of gov
ernent by injunction to enforce the
prohibiton laws than we were to
have th~e dispensary law enforced in
thatl way. Some of those who are
now advocating government .by in
junction were very bitter against
Gov. Tillman a few years~ago when
he resorted to sueh measures. It is
a very dangerous proceeding.
Inasmuch as the resolution to in
vestigate Clemson college provides
that the cost,.of the same be paid out
of the college funds~ it is probable
that the resolution will pass. Clem
son hias pleb.ty of money to pay the
bills;p and it is just as 'well to have
the investigation made.
