To Repair Colony Church-Election of
Slighs, Feb. 1.-I don't remember
ever seeing such nice weather though
out all the month of January. It
basn't seemed like winter time, being
oo warm -and the farmers getting so
nuch plowing done. But I have made
up my mind not to wor.v any more
about the weather than I can possibly
bielp, let it be as it may. It is a very

That the spirit if not the letter of!

another ,office and a college trustee
ship is a contention that has long been
made bysnewspapers but long unhed-1
ed. Now that the governor, as the
chief executive, charged with the duty
*of seeing that the constitution and
l aws of the State are observed, has!
brought the matter to the attention of
the law-makers, the proposition can
not be dismissed as either idle or im
It would seem that those who are
*affected in the matter would be the
* 'most anxious to -have the question set

* satisfactory method of settlement
4 would be to have the question passed
on not by the legislature but by the
courts. The constitution requires that
all officers shall be commissioried; the
* right of any trustee who is not com
missioned to perform the duties of his
office might *be easily tested, and in
the -ame way the right of any trustee
who holds another office to act as
trustee could likewise be tested.
* ~ It is a situation the doubtfulness of
which doej not reflect credit upon the
State, and it were well to have an end
* of it. If Senator Tillman has the legal
right while senator to serve as trus
* tee of Clemson college, under the
Cleimson will, and of Winthrop col
lege, by election of the legislature, no
- one has any possible objection, since
his services to both institutions are
generally recognized, even by his for
mer political opponents. If Capt. Rich-,
ards, while railroad commiss-ioner, and
Senator Johnstone, while senator, are
legally entitled to act as trustees of
Clemson, the one by election and the
other under the terms of the will, no
one desires to prevent their doing so.I
Instead of bringing the matter to
the attention of the general assembly
-or perhaps in addition to doing so
the governor can secure a determina
tion of the issue by having the ques
tion brought directly before the su
preme court. The governor is himself
a lawyer of no mean attainments and
he is clearly of the opinion that the
practice is in violation of the consti
tution. This wa.s the opinion held by
the*ablest attorney g:rneral the State
has had in twenty years, G. Duncan
Bellinger, who after examining into
the question at the personal request
'of the writer of this article gave an
opinion to that effect several years
ago. But if the supreme court should
take a different view, that would set
tle the matter once for all.
Ought Either Obey Law or Change it
to Suit Their Convenience.
Sumter Daily Item.
The members of the legislature who
are also trustees of State institutions
do not approve of Gov. Blease's rude
reference to their action as a rank
Y,iolation of the constitution and they
may ignore his message, as they have
,ry previous Intimation that they
were holding two positions of honor
and trust illegally and in d'rect viol
ation of the constitution and of the
oaths of office; but the issue is now
mo-e clearly defined than ever before
and they can not ignore it indefinitely.
Some years ago the then attorney gen
aral of the State rendered an opinion
that it would be illegal for a man to
bold the positions of school trustee
and postmaster at the same time; and,
if this opinion is good law, we cannot
nderstand how some men can legally
bold the positions of college trustees
and members -of the legislature or con
gress. Gov. Blea&e is on the right
track in the matter and we trust he
will keep on stirring it up until the
lawmakers themselves obey the law,
r else change it to suit their conven
ience, and thereby observe the form
f yielding .respect and obedience to
the constitution. *

Gov. Blease is dead right i demand

Mr. J. H. Kinard, formerly of Char
estof, has been appointed commercial
agent of the Charleston and Western
C-aroina Railway company, with head
juarters in Augusta, Ga., vice Mr. E.
W. Matthews, promoted. The appoint
ment of Mr. Kinard as commercial
agent leaves the Augusta offices of the
railway without a soliciting agent. Ac
.ording to advices received in Charles
Lon' from the Georgia city, the position
of soliciting agent iih Augusta will be
abolished. The appointment will take
lace on Wednesday, Feb9iary 1.
Mr. Kinard was formerly connected
with the Charleston and Western
Carolina railway in Charleston as so
liciting agent, and is therefore well
known in this city. His promotion will
be received as good news by his many
riends here and throwghout the State.
Mr. Kinard is a son of the late James
H. M. Kinard, of Newberry. His many

The ladies of the Symrna church,
Newberry county, in' sending a pair of
qults for our orphbans mentioned that
last year a gift of three quilts was not
acknowledged. As thes'e quilts wire
made by some friends of ours, we hope'
that they will think that any onis
sion was only accid:ene;al. We w'ill,
however, receive a great many such
gentle rebukes, before this session ~is
over, as nearly half of the boxes that
have com' to our lock room have had
no means of identification whatever.
While these are doing the good work
for wvhich they were intended and so
filling a felt want, nievertheless, it is a
cause of regret to us that there is no.
way of thanking the donors. Friends
in sending contributions of this kind
should always mail a letter to Dr. W.
P. Jacobs that suitable acknowledg
ments may be sent.
