All 'epartments of the State gov
enment and the State institutions got
all they asked from the legislature, so
*verybody ought to be happy.
The appropriation bill for this year
farries very nearly two million dol
lars. It is the largest in several
years. - The State is growing and the
people are rich.
k One member on the committee on the
two office proposition some years ago
when elected to the legislature re
signed the office of notary public be
cause he wanted to conform to the
constitution of the State.
Most of the press of the State com
mend the message of Gov. Blease on
the two office proposition. Two say
the constitution doesn't intend what
it says and one says it was a mistake.
We do not know what was intended
or Whether it was a mistake, but we
do know what it says anid the English
anguage could scarcely be written
more pleinly or more clearly.
We are not quite sure but are under
the impresion that the property quali
ication governing scholarship to col
-eges in this state applies to fathers
only. The mother may be wealthy,
but that does not matter, unless we
are mistaken. If we are right, an
amenlment should be made so that a c
girl or boy can not get a scholarship if t
either parent is able to send him or
The better plan would be to abolish C
ih scholarsbips in State colleges and
make tuition free to all South Carolina
boys and girls. A darge proportion of I
~those who secure secboiIrshbips are I
able to <pay their own way through ~
college and many make incorrect
stantsas to their property in or
der to secure free tuition. In fact a t
very small per centage pay any tui- h1
tion in any of the State colleges.
The present legislaturle continues to
~pile on the appropriations for State
It is proposed to build a highwaY
from Virginia to Georgia. . i
We would be glad to see that 'high- f
way from Greenville and from Spar
tanburg via Ne4wberry to Columbia1
built It could he done in a few daysd
and done easily and with the outlay
of a very small amount of cash.
First, we should get together aln.2
the route and raise enough money to
employ a civil engineer and expert
road builder and have him go over
'the route, relocate and survey and 1\
make profiles of the road with speci
. ieations of what is to be done and
then get the people along the road to
come out with their teams and labor C
at the same time from Greenville to
.Columbia. and have ja force of hands
and teams at work at the same time F
on the entire route and in about two I
weeks we could have a fine road all
the way from the mountain city to
Will not some one lead the move- (
ment and call a meeting at Newberry
-a central point-and get represen
tatives present and start the ball roll
There is not a great deal of work1
needed between Newberry and Green
ville, but in many places the road
should be changed so as to avoid rail-'
road crossings where praticable and
to go around bills and change sand
fbeds into sand and clay roads.
If we did not ,get the entirse road
built in the two weeks we could get
the specifications and gradually work
There should be no trouble to get a
the cooperation of the county super-d
visors. In fact Supervisor Humbert,1
of Laurens, is a civil engineer and an
expert road builder and no doubt his
services could be secured to make the;
nee'ssary surveys and specifications.
The entire road ought to be staked
off indicating just what is to be done.
Cr'd'r on is all that is needed.
