Newb'arry: The city that doe
GET DOWN TO THE MERITS.
The article of "Citizen" h- Lhis is
sue touches upon some ,e.,y li-e an
pertinent questions just at this tim
when we are about to enter upon th
campaign for the election of member
of the legislature. We agree most hear
tily with "Citizen" in the view tha
scholarships in our State institution
should be abolished. To that en<
when the editor of this newspape
was a member of the legislature, b
introduced a bill, but, unfortunatel:
by a bare majority of the committe
on education, the bill received an n1
favorable report, and, therefore, coul
never be reached on the calendar i
be considered on its merits.
It is just as "Citizen" says; thos
boys and girls for whom, theoretica
ly, these scholarships are intende
very rarely receive them, for the re
son that their training has not bee
such as to permit them to compel
with thost boys and girls who hav
been more favored. But even if
did, we do not believe in scholarship
We think it is the duty of the Stai
to furnish that education which :
necessary to fit the boys and girls fc
the ordinary duties of life, and, <
course, it is the policy of the Stai
to furnish these higher institution
but when that is done any boy or gih
in South Carolina, who is prepared t
enter the freshman class of any c
these colleges, can secure the hel
necessary to complete the course.
If the State has more money to e3
pend on education, as "citiz'en" rE
marks, it should be spent upon be1
ter pay for the teachers in the con
mon school and the lengthening c
the terms of the common schools.
As to tuition fees in the State col
leges, the law provides that tuitio
must be paid unless the parent C
guardian certify that he is not abi
to. pay it. Of course, a very sma:
percentage of the students in any c
the State colleges pay tuition and W
believe that tuition in these institt
tions should be abolished. Unfortt
nately, in too many cases, our peop]
do not use proper care in the sele<
tion of the members of the legislatur
It is a very-important and responsib]
position, and men who are fitted fc
work of this kind should be chosen
In this connection it may be r4
marked that the examination que:
tions sent out for applicants for scho
arships in our State institutions ai
absurd. In a history examination, fc
instance, the questions deal principa
ly with dates, and we doubt if an
president of any of our State institt
tions, or any professor of histor:
could keep all these dates in mnin<
We don't want to make machines c
our boys and girls. Let's get dow~n t
the merits. When Dr. Cromer wa
president of Newberry college an
was teaching ethics, he propounide
to his senior class on their final es
amination on one occasion, we ar
told, only one question, and in at
swer to that question the student ha
an opportunity and was required t
show how much or how little he C
she knew of the sub.iect. That wa
getting down to the merits. Thati
what we need. Let's get down to th
merits, whether it be in electing men
bers of the legislature, dealing wit
tax questions and appropriations, c
in any other department of huma
Wei believe that the road law shoul
be so amended that every person lit
ble to r.oad duty should be required t
un the public roads, and arrange
ients should be made by which th
roads would be worked by contract. I
would be a great deal better to hav
the S2 tax without the six days. An4
then we should abolish the jive or six
hundred overseers, and let them pay
this tax also, and contract with re
liable men in each community to keep
up the roads at so much per mile per
year. Until some such system is
ador,ted we may never hope to have
much improvement in our public
When we read the report of the
many pleasant affairs which have
been held in Prosperity during the
visitors' tournament, we regret very
much that we were not able to attend.
This is one of the most attractive af
e fairs of this kind which we havQ
s known of in this State, and Prosperit5
is to be congratulated upon its suc

It is hoped that the supervisor wil
be able to complete the work on thi
road to Kinards, which he has beer
on for some weeks, before he has t(
n move to No. 4 township. However, aj
e we have said before, wherever th4
. people of any community are willini
it to furnish their teams and wagoni
and co-6perate with the chainganj
e and supervisor, the supervisor shoul
s encourage them.
We do not agree with "Citizen" tha
there is any question of more import
ance than the road question.

There is a man in this here town

-who has lost only ten days In twen
ty-seven years of work, and that was
in paying a visit several years ago.
It is time that that man was taking
a few weeks off and going away from
such confinement and labor.
The Greenwood Journal notes a
movement being made for the protec
tion of animals in Greenwood. In a
good, strong article the Journal says:
"We have all seen horses on our
streets doing service for their owners
whose condition -was a sin, and a
shame to the owners and a disgrace to
the city. The man who does not feed
his animal and keep it in good condi
tion, should not be allowed to own
one." He should not.
On and at the double corner of Sum
mer Bros. is a good place to stand and
loaf. It would also make an ideal
spot for an officer to make his obser
vations as to the time and place for
his duty. It is a fine place for him
to receive calls and signals.
One call for grievance heard from
already. There were eight hundred
and nine passengers to five coaches
on the excursion Wednesday and
nothing said. The point is this and
it is well taken. - A railroad running
its own excursion crowds the cars as
above stated and it is all right, but
when an individual runs one the road
binds him to a contract not to carry
over sixty passengers to a car. Extra
cars to all over 60. It is not right.
Let us all kick against it.
