In the appointment of Mr. H. A. M.
Smith, of Charleston, as United States
district judge for South Carolina, to
succeed Judge W. H. Brawley, Presi
dent Taft has again given evidence of
that admirable spirit, which has char
acterized him in his appointments of
judges, which disregards party lines
and seeks character and merit.
It does seem that Attorney General
Lyon has had ample time to get ready
in the cases which he has brought
against those connected with and who
!a4 dealings with the old State dispen
sary, It is reported from Columbia
at four defendants were in court
there yesterday demanding a trial,
nd that "the solicitor notified the
ecourt for 3. Fraser Lyon, attorney
general of South Carolina, that the
State was not ready for trial at this
tefn,l" These and other ca.ses hiave
been hangink over for a long time, and
*.ey ought to be disposed of. The con
stitution guarantees the~ "right to a
speedy and public trial by an impar
tial jury," and we suppose it means
what it says, though the constitution
seems to be held in very light esteem
these days 'by even law-makers and'
those charged with the enforcement
of the law.
We would like to see the whole old
State dispens'ary business and all
*matters coiinected with it wound up
and got rid of and forgotten, if pos

The following editoirial from the
Columbia Daily Record is of particu
lar interest at this time. and preaches
a good doctrine along with the state
ment of facts which it gives:.
"The Anderson Daily Mail denomi
nates as "fake journalism" the story
published in some of the South Caro
lina papers that the emrployes of the
Ware -Shoals mill had demanded a
holiday on the occasion of Governor
Blease's speech at that place, and the
Orangeburg Times and Democrat re
lers to the story as "a lie out of the
whole cloth." Other papers have .had
similar comments. It will be wefl to
proceed a little more cautiously in the
matter of denouncing a story pub
lished in a reputable newspaper, writ
ten by a reputable newspaper man.
whose chief asset- in his profession is
his reputation for truth and veracity.
"As for The Daily Record. this
newspaper has no interest in the mat
ter. The story was not published in
this papeir. But we are free to say
that we have since read a letter writ
ten by one of the most reliable and
anost prominent business men of Co
-lumbia. confirming the "tip" which h*
gave to the reporter who wrote the
story. This gentleman was the re
porter's authority for the story. and
the gentleman himself received his
information personally from an offi
cial who was assuredly authorized to
speak for the Ware Shoals mill com
pany. The story did not emanate
from the governor nor any of his
LTVED OFF- ROULETTE WHEEL.
Man With a System Had no Desire
to Break Monte C'arlo Bank.
"Not onsg since T was ah!e to stratn
fy an ancient desire to see Mo::tb
Carlo and I spent almost a month at
that famous resort." remarked John
S. Prabe ro St. Johns, N. B. at the
"Of course it is the world's greatest
gambling camp and it makes each
year for the operating syndicate a' f
clean profit of $5,000,000. but it is in

purposes. but which have only game- 2
sters in their membership.
"The curious specimens of Duman
ity at Monte Carlo interested me far
more than the play, though I patron
ized the roulette tables in a moderate
way. breaking about even on the
whole experiment. One man with
whom I struck up an acquaintance I
found worth cultivating. He was a
modestly dressed. quiet sort of citizen,
and what attracted my attention to
him was that he never remained in
the Casino more than one hour, al
though he was constant in his attend
"He confessed to me that he had
no passion for gambling, such as ani
mated the vast majority; no dreams
of breaking the bank ever disturbed
his nocturnal visions. All he desired
was to make a living out of the wheel

years, not a grand living, but com

retrieved the previous day's losses
plus his daily living expenses, which
was the goal of his ambitions, he de

A Matter of Caution.
Blanche Ring is always preaching
caution-whether she practices it or
not is, as Kipling says, another story,
relates Youngs Magazine. "if every i
one was on'ly as cautious as a man I
once knew," she said the other night1
as she was waiting to go on in "The
Yankee Girl," nobody would eVer go
broke. He called at the money brde? i'
asked 'permission to se~nd an order
for $100 to the 'old country.' Then
the man with the money gave his own
name as payee.
"'I'm going ovier next week,' hefl
volunteered. 'and I want to have the
money waiting for me on the otheri
side, so that I can giVe it to my

Taking N'o Chances.
The druggist approached the celes
tial gate. St. Peter opened the por
tal for him and bad.e him enter and
join the heavenly choir.
"Not so fast." admonished the corn
pounder of pills. "Before I go in
there I want to ask a few questions.
Have you any city directories in
"No," repli.ed St. Peter.
"Any remedies for growing hair on
.bald heads and door -knobs."
"Any soda fountains?"
"We don't .know what they are."
"Do you sell stamps?"
"We don't use them here." 1
"And last but not least, have you
any hve not"
"Then I'll go in, for I 'guess this is
heaven all right, all right."-Louis
"Booth Tarkington is very difficult
to please in matt,ers theatrical." said-a
famous Philadelphia novelist. "Tar
kin gton was visiting me 'here during
the run of one of his own plays, and
after dinner one evening we saunter
ed to the theatre. But the doorkeep;er
did not know us and for somne little
time r"fused to let us in. Finally, '
though, Tarkington's identity was es
tablished. and w.e were conducted to
a stage box.
"The performance wasn't up to.
much. Tarkington fidgeted in his
chair, and at the end of the first act
he suggested that we go. On our
way out I saw my illustrious friend
'peering anxiously 'about the lobby.
"'What are you. looking for?' I)
"'I looking.' said Tarkington, 'for
that chap who wouldn't let us in.
I want to give him a quarter.' "

To se how little the old1 New Eng

are reading to her I read the follow-:
ing account to an old New Bedford
woman from the Boston Herald. Hold

"Last nighiT. yeserda y morning,

40 years old, bought a big custard
or a levy, and threw it through a
rick wall nine feet thick. and jump
