The Spartanburg Journal in speak
ing of a visit of Mr. L. W. Parker to
Spartanburg says it has been ra
mored that he would probably be a
eandidate for the United States sen
ate. We do not bmow that Mr. Par
ker has any aspiration in that direc
tion, but we do know Mr. Parker
quite well and we do not hesitate to
say that there is not a better equip
ped man in this state for Uu.ied
States senator than Mr. Parker.
While he has been a very busy man
in the commercial world -he is also
a weall informed man and a close stu
dent of political economy and the
State of South Carolina would do
well to secure his services in the
senate. We bave known Mr. Par
-ker from the time when lie was a
school boy, and we know him to it,e a
man of high character and of intel'
lectual strength and we would be
glad to see this type of man repre
senting South Carolina in the United
States Sanate. 'We doubt, however,
if Mr. Parker would consent to be a
candidate for this position, or wheth
er he ould afford to soeept it, be
0ause ie is a man of large affais and
successful in them.
The legislature, which seems to be
engaged in inspecting all the useful
educational institutions of the State
ought to come to Spartenburg and
visit the Journal, office.-Spartan

The report of the sinking fund
commision for Newberry, Menden
Jiall and Stoney Battery townships,
published in this issue of The Her
-aid and News, shows the saving
which has resulted to the people of
these townships by the creation of
thius com.mision and its work in the
retirement of the railroad bonds of
the three townships.
*The creation of this commission
- was the result of the suggestion of
Mr. Fred H. Dominiek, while he was
County clerk and attorney, after a
thorough investigatin by Mr. Dom
inick into the feasibility of a plan
for a more expiiditious retirement of
the bonds than under the old plan.
.The commision was created byv the
legislative session of 1908, and its:
first meeting was held on February
27 of that year. The 'commission is'
composed of the county supervisor,
the county treasurer, the county au
ditor, and the mayors of Newberry
and Pperit. M.. Dni:.a s!
been secretary of the commission th
since it was created. la
The report goes into detail as to Iye
the bonds which have beea< retirnad th1
and as to those yet outstanding, and, le"
taken in connection with thereport of ye
the preceding year, shows that the ui
three townships have in two years
beem saved $2,231 in interest. As a fo
result of the cancellation of bonds in re
1908 the saving in interest last year ti<
was $953, and as a result of the $1
cancellation of bonds last year the la
total saving in interest will be $1,278
per year, making the total for the 00
two years the amount above stated. fo
If the plan suggested to the New- 'u
berry delegation by the commission 01
is put into effect all of the bonds can
be taken up, and instead of paying m
seven per cent on some of them and
six per cent. on the others, the three It
townships would pay only five per hE
cent. on the whole indebtedness, thus 9
enabling them to rid themselves of bi
the burden in much shorter time.
The work of the commission has re
been well done, and the records of VI
the secretary show the exact stand- th
ing of the townships in relation to
the bonds. Oi
It is said the appropriation bill of
this year will be the banner one in nc
the-history of legislation.' It will be a"
noted that the 0itadel wants an ex- s4
tra appropriation of $85,000 and the in
South Carolina University wants ry
more. The State is rich, the people C
are prosperous. "Lay on MeDuff
