GRENLLECO[U BIA HIGH
WAY-A PRACTICAL PLAN.
Commenting on the editorial in The
Herald and News of Friday, suggest
ing a -an by which we might get the
Toad from Greenville to Columbia put
in good condition, the Laurens Ad
"The Herald and News is along the
right track. This good roads enthus
iasm should never be allowed to die
down. While we are interested to a
certain degree in a road from Spar
tanburg or Greenville, and both, to
Columbia, via Laurens, Clinton and
Newberry, we are still more interest
ed in such a road connecting the lat
ter three cities. A good road connect
ing these three cities and Columbia
would be of inestimable benefit.
"While, as we say, we are particu
lar.ly interested in such a road, 'we
are still more interested in the matter
*f good roads all over the county.
hre ie no doubt, but that the pros
perity of the county and of every,
county arywhere depends more on
this matt4r 4f good roads than any
Other Ono thing. Let us keep the
s1pganj of good roads going. Too
much cannot be said along that line.
"There is no doubt but that Super
visor Humbert is ready to cooperate
with the Newberry folks in building
this road. Lets get together."
The more we think about this prop
osition, the more firmly are we con
vinced that it is not only practicable,
but is the easiest and the best plan
to secure, at least, one good highway
from Greenville to Columbia at a
minimum of cost. Of course, it would
take some time to perfect the organi
zation, and to have the surveys made;
and the road properly staked, and
there would be some cost connected
with this, but, comnpared with the re
suilts, the cost would be a very small
We are satisfied that Supervisor
Humbert, of Laurens county, would
do the preliminary, work, in making
the plans and specifications, at a cost
that would 'be reasonable. We believe
also that if the plan were properly
presented to the people along the
route, and the time fixed for the work
when the farmers were not pressed
in their crops and the weather condi
tions were favorable, that every man
who lives along the proposed route
wou-ld be willinLg to furnish his 'teams
and the labor on his plantations, and
give his hearty co-operation..
If we can get one road in this way
it means the building of other roads.
We are satisfied that the people be
- Newberry and Whitmnire would be
glad to co-operate, and to work that
road at the same time.
This plan can be carried to a suc
cess'ful termination without increas
ing\taxes or issuiing bonds, and with
very little effort on the part of the
-people most directly interested. We
-would be glad to bhea.r from i those
* along the route, and particularly our
farmer friends in New-berry county.
Give us your co-operation and en
couragemen.t, and the work is done.
SHIFTING THE RESPONSIBILITY.
The special commission appointed
by the genern l assembly to investigate
the holding of two offices by trustees
of the various State institutions con
cludes "that the trusteeship of any
of the institutions of learning of the
State is an office of trust, the hold
ing of which precludes one from hold
ing another office of trust at the same
The comnmittee, however, expresses
:itself as undecided whether one hold
mng a trusteeship under the Clemson
will "is in the same category as trus
tees elected by the g eneral assembly,"
and recommends that the attorney
general institute proceedings by which
* the supreme court may determine this
The life trustees of Clemson col
lege under the Clemson will consti
tute a majority of the board, and have
the expenditure of something like a
quarter of a million dollars or more
annually for the support of an insti
tution which the supreme court of
South Cnrc1i" hag decided, in the
celebrated case of Hopkins vs. Clem- 3
son, can not be sued becausie ithe
itrustees are representatives of the
State. Unless the supreme court
should reverse itself their -an be no f
doubt as to what its ,eenSn will be.
Whatever its decision, however, t
that will be the law after the court
has spoken, whether it was the law
before or not.
In the meantime, the life trustees
of Clemson continue to control the
affairs of the institution and to spend
a quarter of a million dol-lars annual
ly of the State's money, refusing to ,
allow thiehnselves to be sued because
they are agents of the state, and yet
claiming they do not hold a position
of honor or profit under the State- 3
and the legislative committee is un
If ontly others than members of the
general 'assembly were concerned, the
committee would be right in holding
that the legal aspect of the case could
only be finally determined by the su- t
preme court. But whether, under the I
constitution, these life trustees are t
eligible to sears in the genielral as
sembly is a matter for the general
assembly, an-0 no other. The consti
tution of South. Carolina in Article 3,
Section, 11, says distinctly that "each i
house shall judge of thie . . quali
fications of its own members." And.
the constitution says in Article 3,
Section 24: "No person shall be eligi- t
ble to a seat in the general assem
bly while he holds any office or posi- t
ition of profit or trust under this t
State, the United States of America,
or any of them, except officers in the i
militia and notaries public; and if any 1
member shall accept or exiercise any
of the said disqualifying offices he
shall vacate his seat."
There is nothing equivocal about
this. Ii is plain and mandatory.
The -legislative committee, however,
desired to shift upon other shoulders
a duty imposed by the constitution, y
and we have no doubt the shoulderm
of the supreme court are broad enough a
to bear it.
Every time Clemson is mentioned I
in the general assembly there is a
scramble of members to their feet to (
cry that the desire is to cripple the F
farmers' college. It would be amus
ings if it had not continued so ,long
as to become nauseating. Ini the first
placiet, n'obody wants to cripple Clem
son, and in the second place it is con
siderably more of everything else t
than a farmers' college. That is'
neither here nor there. Cl'e4mson is
doing a good work, but any institution
that spends as much money as Clem
son spends-the State's 'money- .2
ought to be control.led by the State,
and if the majority of its trustees are
not holding positions under the State,
making them amenable to the laws of1 j
the State, they ought to be. I
If Clemson is not a State institu
tion, then it would be far better to
give back the Clemson bequest, or
abolish the whole thing, and start I
over again, and start right. With a 2
quarter of* a million dolilars a yea~r I
to work on, the start could be easilyt
and safely made.
While we think of it, we want to
say we hope President Kohn wil.1 in-IE
vite President Fin-ley, of the South
ern railway, to attend the next meet

GOVERNOR RLEASE SATS THE

Severely C'riticizes Recent Report of
Judiiary Committee on Appoint
ment of Sp eciail .Iudges.
Columbia, Feb. 13.--"The judiciary
committee of the house," said Gov.
Blease on Saturday, "violated the very
section of the constitution and statute
by having on their sue-committee a
brother of a justice of the supreme
court. The other two members are
known of all men to be two of my bit
terest enemies and of course from
them I could expect nothing. I have
asked the legislature to do something
anid if they dor t, I shall meet the
issue fair and square."
The sub-conmmittee r'eferred to by1
Governor Bl:ease was com.posed of
Representative H. K. Osborne, Spar
tanburg: Representative W. F. Steven
son, Chesterfield, and Representative
Frank B. Gary, Abbeville.
The statement of Governor Blease
is in reference to the report of the
udiciary committee of the. house hold
ng constitutional the statute which
,ives the supreme court the right to
ia.me special judges to be appointed
y the governor. Governor Blease,
ollowing the clash between the exe
,utive and judicial departments in
he matter of the appointment of a
pecial judge to hola the Richland
ourt, now in session, sent a message
o the general assembly in which he
lecdared this opinion that the consti
ution gave the governor the power
o select and appoint, and that there
'ore the statute under which the su
>reme court acted was unconstitution
L. The matter was referred to the
udiciary committee, and by it to a
aub-committee, which rendered an
pinion that the statute was in ac
:rd with the constitution.
