Entered at the Postoffice at New

We would suggest to our cotempo
rary, the Observer, that it read the
State constitution and it will find that
the two exceptions to holding two of
Sees as given in the constitution, or,
.rather the two offices or positions that
Mcan be held together with other offices
and positione, are notary public and
an office in the militia.
The Chattauooga Times remarks
that Hoke Smith learned from Grover
Cleveland that "A public office is a
public trust." Mr. Cleveland was right
but he didn't go far enough. He should
have added that no man ought to bur
den himself with two public trusts at
the same time.-Wilmington (N. C.)

We have no idea what the "unfore

Governor Blease away from the picnic

that both he and ex-Governor Jno.

Says the SpiaTtanburg Journal:
"The Colu,mbia Record booms Ira B.

supporting Hoyt for congres from the
SSeventh district" If the latter were
a' controlling consderation with the
Record, why should it boom Jones in
preference to another aspirant for the
senate? But it may lie impossible for
some persons to uniderstand that even
if Mr. Hoyt were a candidate for con

Will rise up to assign sinister motives.
No mian is given credit for acting fromi
purely patriotic motives. The pity' is
that it is' true.
It is too early to fall out about the
presidential nominations next year
and the Nebraska Democratic conven
tion wiseiy agreed on a program that
will prevent a split in the party at this
time. Mr. Bryan's representatives
were conspicuous at the con-vention,
determined thiat he should not be ig
nored or humiliated, while the per
sonal r,epresen.tative of Governor Har
mon was on the scene, .iust spyin~g out

Democrats for the presidential noml
nation will be determined ,in a primary

'choice will be 'neither Bryan nor Ha.r
A great many changes may take
place before the compaign of next
summer. Some 'man may come for

The Record is right. It is too early
to fall out. But that has been, to some
extent, the history of the Democratic
party. The leaders and their friends

NEWSPAPERS AND COMMUNITY
Under this capition the GreenvillE
News, a few days ago, carried a very
sensible, as well as a very true, edi
torial, and we feel that it is particu
larly appropriate to this community
at this time, and, in fact, would be ap
propriate to any community at any
time. It is too true that a community
rarely values the advantages and the
help to the community that the local
Thq News says:
"It needs no argument to convince
that no movement ever attained suc
cess without publicity and in the na
ture of things any movement requir
ing for its success the support of nu
merous persons must have the invalu
able aid of a common mouth-piece.
The kind of publicity needed in this
development is afforded by :the local
paper at every stage of its progress.
.The local editor should be and usually
is conversant with the community's
needs; he is wholly in sympathy with
and is an enthusiastic supporter of
every undertaking that is calculated
to make his town b~igger, better and
It would be a very poor' -newspaper,
indeed, that was not wholly in sym
pithy with, and an enthusiastic sup
porter of, every undertaking calculat..
ed to make the town better and big
ger. It is also true that the local
newspaper is really the smallest di
rect beneficiary of the progress and
advancement of the community.
This is truly an age of publicity,
and that business which does not ap
preciate the advantages of advertising
in the local newspaper, does not have
the proper appreciation of the spirit
of the age.
The News says further:
"The first evidence, therefore, of a
community's awakening is to be
found in lts local newspaper, and the
first act of those initiating a move
w1ent for -local development is to en -
list the services of and work hand in
hand with that paper.
"But this fact must not be miscon
strued. The newspaper is a business
institution, the same as Is a dry goods
or a grocery store. It must give a
ftnancial return for the money inveist
ed in it and for the libor expended up
on it. The greater part of the exploi..
tation -performed by a newspaper le
more directly for thte benefit of some
thing or somebody else than for the
publishers himself. But paper, ink,
type and everything necessary to pro
duce a newspaper cst money and for
finascial support the newspaper pub
lisher must .look to those who derive
benefit from the publicity It. affords."
It is true, as we have already said,
and as the News says, that the news
piaper is general-ly the smallest bene
ficiary and receives the least benefit
directly from this activity and in pro
m~oting the commercial as weil as the
other Interests of the comimunity. The
peop)le,~ somehow, especially in the
smaller communities, seem to have an
Idea that it does not cost money to
buy paper and Ink and type and to pay
the men who produce the newspaper.
They do snot seem to realize that the
newspaper itself, and space in tshe
newspiaper, constitute the merchan
dise which the paper Is selling, and
should be treated just as the average
citizen treats groceries or dry goods,
and tihat while, in a certain.sense, the
newspaper Is a public institution, yet
In order to live and to do its best
work, It must get pay for the paper
said for the space it sells just as the
grocer is paid for his wares or teh
manjufacturer for .his manufactured
The News concludes:
"The 'benefits arising from the pub
licity of a newspaper are not limited
to subscribers and advertisers. The
paper is a constant worker in every
movement that. tends to improve con
ditions in the community. Its sub
scribers and its advertisers make its
existence possible but they usually
are a small part of the community
of which it is a benefactor.
"Thle indirect benefits derived from
subscribing to the local paper and
from using it for advertising purpos
es are double and triple the direct
benefits. It is through the newspa
per that the community speaks on all
occasions on which the community
desires to be-and if its 'best interests
are to be served--must be heard. But
the community must not as a com
munity forget that the publisher of the
paper 'is at his own expense exploit
ing the community and benefittir'g
each member of* it as much--perhaps
"The first aid, the best aid in any
"Keep the Money at Home" campaigns
is the newspaper. It is through its
columns that are made known the ad
vantage possessed by the coimmunity
it serves. Its pages chronicle every
movement of interest and importance
to that comiunity and it is the one
factor in local development that can
not profitably or safely be omitted or
FLEE FROM FAMINE
Hundreds Going to Escape Perils of
Charlotte, N. C., July 30.-With the
big ponds which have furnished Ohar
lotte's water supply for many years
only inundations of sun-baked mud,
and the stop-cocks to the small supply
in the reservoir shut down tight since
early Friday morning, this city is un
dergoing a period of distress that Is
as unique as it is serious. The plan
to haul water in tank cars from the
Catawba river, twelve miles from here,
was well under way Saturday and
thousands of gallons were dumped in
to the settling basins, but this move
ment received a setback today, when
one of the big pumps 4t Mount Holly
broke down, delaying the program of
the authorities to resume regular
water service by Tuesday.
The numerous mineral water agen
cies are overwhelmed and can not be
gin to supply the demand. Mayor
Bland today peremptorily suspended
the blue law which forbids the dis
pensation of mineral waters and soft
drinks at soda fountains so far as the
water is concerned.
-No rain of consequence has fallen in
this section in many weeks. With the
famine of water the sewerage system
has been abandoned and the forced
installation of surface closets has
brought about a ienace to health that
has necessitated 'stringent sanitary
regulations. Special sanitary guards
are being sworn in every .day to pa
trol the city, along with squads of
extra .firemen to minimize the danger
from fire, for the city-now Is absolute
ly at the mercy of the- flames. Hun
dreds are .leaving Charlotte, flocking
to the seashiore and mountain resorts
to escape the present perils.
