A GREAT OPPORTUNITY.
Mr. Blease, when he assumes the of
fice next January, will have the great
est opportunity that has been present
ed to any governor of South Carolina
since Wade Hampton. It is the sincere
'wish of the Record that he shall live
up to that opportunity. He has the
ability to do it.
By giving the State a fair, conserva
tive, progressive administration Mi.
Blease can disappoint his enemies and
confound all who have predicted that
he would as governor be radical, par
tisan and arbitrary. He is familiar
with the affairs of the State, he knows
the sentiment of the people, he pos
sesses the capacity for leadership. He
has said that if elected he will be gov
ernor of all the people. Let him live
up to that pledge and measure up to
In every effort to do so Mr. Bl-ease
may be assured of the best wishes and
sincere cooperation of the Record,
which with the vast majority of other
newspapers in the State, has opposed
his election to the limit of its influence
and ability. We are licked, we accept
the verdict of the ballot box in good
faith, and stand ready to uphold the
hands of the victor in every worthy
act and endeavor.-Columbia Record.
The abovt from the Columbia Rec
ord is a manly utterance and we must
say of all the newspapers we have
read we believe the Record has been
inclined to be fair and just in its op
position. -We agree with the Record
that Mr. Blease has now before him
the greatest opportunity of his life.
He is face to face with a crisis. He
can rout his enemies and draw his
friends closer to him. He has the
ability and we believe will exercise
the judgment and will justify the con
fidence placed in him by the 60,000
citizens of South Carolina, who voted
for him on Tuesday in preference to
Mr. Featherstone, by giving to the peo
ple of South Carolina a conservative,
dignified and business administration
of the high office to which he has been
chosen. That he will rout his enemies
and confound them, as the Record
says, by refusing to be radical, parti
san and arbitrary.
We repeat that a great opportunity
Is presented to you, Mr. Blease. A
crisis has been reached in your poli
tical career. The people of South
Carolina have chosen you by a decid
ed majority for the high office of gov-.
ernor, and the few newspapers that
gave you support are expecting that
by your conduct you will justify that
support and put to rout and confound
those who have opposed you in that
you will not do anything radical, but
that you will be conservative, dignified
and business-like, and at the same
time positive, lending your voice and
your influence to those things which
will make for the advancement of
South Carolina In all things that are
for the up-lift of her citizenship.
. .THE REASON.
In discussing the defeat of Mr.
Featherstone, the Columbia Record
says that "the portrayal of any candi
date as a buzzard and the misquota -
tion of such a mani as Dr. Geo B.
Cromer to the 1-art of that candidate
are 'breaks' sufficient to ensure the
s leaiLn of that candidate in any ciune
cor:st in a State where the people
love a fair fight and decent metheds."
There is a great deal of truth in this
statement. We believe that a large
majority of the people resented the
unfair attacks made upon Candidate
Blease by the State newspaper and
quoted with gusto by a great major
ity of the country press and the o'her
smaller dailies of the State.
As The Herald and News said in an
editorial just before the second pri
mary, referring to the cartoon, which,
by the way, was published in one or
two other papers in South Carolina,
using as a text the label, placed un
der this cartoon, "The Menace":
"The menace is unfair newspaper
The denial to the candidate whose
defeat it attempts to encompass, thae
hearing, along with the attacks that
nare being made upon him. Such meth
ence of the press of the State.
"The newspapers of South Carolina
have in the past wielded a wonderful
influence. It is because they have
made for themselves a reputation of
fairness, and, presenting both sides,
have urged the claims of the side
which the newspapers thought would
be for the interests of the State of
We further remarked in this edito
rial before the election: "The course
which some of them are now pursuing
may help the men of their choice in
this particular race-though we
doubt it-but the profession suffers.
Why not give verybody a square deal."
As it turned out the course of some
of these newspapers did not help the
man of their choice and the profession
It is all right to say that the press
of the State owes a duty to the citiz
enship and that duty is to expose any
man, who, in their judgment is un
worthy of public confidence, but the
man who has received the endorse
ment of his home people must have
some good qualities and is it not al
ways the duty of the press to give to
the citizenship of the State the benefit
of these virtues and then let the citiz
enship choose? That was not the
policy pursued, however, by the press
that opposed Mr. Blease and as a re
sult, though all but two or three
newspapers fought him bitterly, the
people of South Carolina have elected
him governor by a majority of over
There is a lot of complaint as to
the crowded condition of the* capitol
at Columbia. There is not nearly
enough room in the building for all
the State officers. Several officers
who have quarters in the State house
during the balance of the year, have
to get out while the general assembly
is In session. Others have to get out
for the supreme court. Others never
try to get quarters in the building.
Those who can not find quarters in the
capitol have to pay rent of course.
This Is expensive to the State. The
nly way out of the trouble is for the
State to build more accommodations
nd this should be done without delay.
The State house is crowded on ac
ount of the increase by the legisla
ture in departments of State. If the
legislature would erect a supreme
ourt building for the use of the su-,
preme court and the supreme court
library, the present State house would
accommodate comfortably the differ
ent departments. This should be done
and the Interest on the money would
not be a great deal more than is paid'
for rent. Besides, it would give the
State officers permanent abode for
records and they would be more com
fortable and could do their work more
It was said by one newspaper that
were Blease elected governor it would
be Aull smiles in Newberry. The ma
ority of us of his profession think
that Aull is wrong in Newberry.
We would remind Brother Caldwell
that competent literary critics state
that the pun on names is not the high
est order of wit. However, we will
further state that Aull is feeling fair
ly well and endeavoring to pursue the
even tonor of his way without attempt
ing to molest or disturb any one else
and that while the majority of his pro
ession may think that he is wrong,
the majority of his fellow citizens of
South Carolina in this particular case
has said that he is right, and so also
has the majority of his fellow citizens
of Newberry county.
We observed in the Record of Wed
esday afternoon in givng the result
of the race for the legislature in New
berry county under a Newberry head
line, that it is stated "Mr. Evans is a
cousin of Mr. C. L. Blease." So far as
we are informed they are in no way
related by blood or otherwise.

not so inclined already. We have no
quarrel with the Columbia State, or
any other newspaper, and we can not
open our columns to attacks upon it
or any other newspaper. During the
entire campaign, The Herald and News
has made no attack upon any news
paper nor upon any candidate.

SCURRY'S NINE WINS.
Defeated Prosperity on Last Thursday
Evening by Score of NIne to
(By J. R. S.)
On last Thursday afternoon, Sep
tember 8, the little Prosperity nine
met the Scurry's nine (ages ranging
from 8 to 15 years) on the college dia
mond and played nine innings, Scur
ry's nine defeating Prosperity's nine,
9 to. 7. The game was called at 4.30
o'clock, Scurry's nine going to bat
The following is the score by in
Scurry's Nine .. .....123 300 000-9
Prospdrity . .......012,000 040-7
In the third inning the Prosperity
catcher was hit by a pitched ball and
hurt so badly that he had to get out of
the game for two Innings. He was
substituted by a boy much smaller
than himself who held down the pitch
or remarkably well. In the eighth In
ning several bases were given Pros
perity on balls which finally brought
them ano'ther run. Prosperity finally
scored three, now making four runs.
In the ninth inning everybody got
down to business and no more scores
were made on either side.
This concluded the season. Now as
our little nine will soon start to
school I hope they will not think
too much about baseball, but, on the
other hand will start to school with
the determination of studying hard,
and learn all they can and be good and
obedient boys to their - teachers and
parents, trying to get along at school
w: th all their fellow-students. This
wjil be iAce and everybody will no,
tice it and praise all the boys for be
ing such nice little "gents" and God
will love you all for it. Then, if we
are living next year after school is
out, we will organize our teams again
and will play such good ball that we
will even surprise professionals and
everybody who will come to see us.
Hurrah, for our little team! We
came out In the hole b,ut it was not
our fault altogether; but we are used
to disappointments and the best way
to take them is to laugh instead of
crying for the latter view will only
make matters worse. I think we all
got our money's worth although we
were not financially able to lose :t

The Prosperity team and some little
friends were met at the depot by their
old friend, Scurry, and carried to the
college diamond in Mr. Morris' strect

brought back to the city and, after
having been refreshed anld eating
some goodies, in company with my
good friends, J. L. Wise, and old Bunce
Wheeler they were taken over to Wil
lowbrook park. They surely enjoyed
themselves, swinging and see-sawing
and seeing several experts skate. We
then came back to the depot and I left
