In the appointment of a Southern
man and a Democrat as chief justice
of the supreme court of the United
States, President Taft has shown that
ihe is a broad man and is trying to be
jresident of the whole country.
Having made a start, Newberry ex
pects to furnish all the governo,s
from now henceforth. We have some
good material for the United States
senate also, if the gentlemen will con
sent to allow their names to be used.
The Newberry chamber of commerce
is working for the whole county, and
wants more county members. Town
and county together, and a long,
strong, continuous pull, and results
We hope the people of Greenwood
will not wait until the last two or
three days to come to Newberry to do
their Christmas shopping. Follow the
example of Laurens, and make haste,
so that our clerks won't be worked to
death on Christmas eve.
Every usiness man in Newberry
ought to be aa aetive menbr of the
shamber of commere. The chamber
of commerce is working for Nawberry
and could do much better work if il
Iad the co-operation of all the busi
aess men whose interests it is seek
ing to advance.
v Yes, Charleston has more banks than
any other city of its size in the world,
and more beautiful women than any
city, size ignored.-News and Courier.
A cutemporary has suggested that
if faro banks and sand banks are in
eludied the first part of this assertion
is all right, but the latter part must
be a mistake, because we haven't
heard of any Newbarry women mov
ing to Charleston recently.
The Abbeville Press and Barine'r
says that, as it seems that nearly all
crimes are committed by "promin'ent'
~people, "to prevent crim'e it might be
well eiiough to arrest upon s.uspicion
every prominent citizen in the State
and lock him up." That might not be
a bad idea, but since all of us are
prominent, who would make the ar
rests? That could be remedied
though, by some arrs :ing the others
and then locking themselves in.

MISS VcCLINTOCK'S ADDRESS.
She Spoke In Florence of The Need
Of a State Board of Charities
At the second annual session of the I
State convention of charities and cor
rections, held in Florence, last week,
the News and Courier correspondent
says that Miss Euphemia McClintock,
pres4dent of the Presbyterian Oollege
for Women, of Columbia, addressed
the conference upon the need of a
State board of charities in South Car- Z
olna. The creation of such a board"
was one of the matters endorsed by
the conference In 1909, and the bill
which was tatroduced was favorably
reported tipon by oommitteas in both
house and senate, but was later
smothered before enactment into law.
Miss McClintock reviewed in detail
the various charitable institutions of
the State. Each with a separate and
independent board, and with excellent
records, directing attention especal
ly to the county alms houses and jails.
Miss McClintock then spoke with
great earnestness upon the needs of
these institutions and their inmates.
Out of 766 inmates of the poor houses
of South aCrolina 6ver 400 are white.
Proper attention 'to the inmates is im
possible under the conditions imposed
upon those in charge. The grand jury
.reports upon these institution's are
stereotyped and no adequate provis
ion is made for investigation or re
lief. The jail conditions are the sa.me.
Ill prisoners cainnot possibly be at
tendad to at the per diem allotted.
Children detained for trial are kept
with hardened offenders, and often
with those of another color. Tahe ac- .
commodations for women criminals
are grossly inadequate. The condi
tions in the fjails are those which man
Miss McClintock considered the
question of the convict camps and th
deplorable conditions there existing.
Her final conclusion was that with the
disorganized supervision of the chari
table and correctional institutions of
the- counties the results were not so
good as could have been obtained.
The remedy, Miss McClintock said,
lay in a central board of charities, ap
pointed by the governor without ref
erence to t.heir political activities, but
only as to their fitness. Miss McClin
tock's address was clear-cut and very
convincing, both as to the unfor
tunate condition she described and as
to the remedy suggested, which is the
general method in force in most of
the States of the Union.
What He Thought.
The subject 'of conversation between
the last two sportsmen left up at night
in the smoking -room after a hard '
day's shooting was the wonderful
scent of dogs.
"Mine is a marvel. Not long ago I
went motoring, far from home. My
pointer, although chained up, worked
himself out of his collar and found
me two hours afterward. that d'ye
think of that?"
"I think you ought to have a bath." 3
