Senator Till'man has told the boys
that he will be in .the running next
year if he is living and even if he
were not he would let them vote for
him. And you just as well stay off the
track if the old racer is living for he
will clean it up.
4 The story started out from Coluin
bia that Gov. Blease was going to
remove Mr. E. J. Watson and give
his place to Mr. James Norton. Gov.
Blease said he knew nothing aboat it
except what he saw in tle n(w6
papers, - .
Out-of-State papers are continually
referring to the political excitement
in this State. We fail to notice any of
it around in thesie parts.-Geenville
Piedmont ?. -
Do not these out of State papers
get their information and their news
of State affairs from in State cor- I
respondents? And then the papers
of the State have already discussed
and settled te next gubernatorial
electiTn. Had. you not notiAed that?
The farmer is a fine fellow and a
necessary plement .in the great com
mercial life of -the country until he
asks that the price of his main crop
be lif,ted a .litte, a.nd then he is a
liliputlan in importance.-Chai-lotte
So much more the beason why he
should become .Independent and not be
following tlhe lead of t!ese political
farmers who go around and tell the
fmers what to do. The thing they
are hunting is .the job and they gen
erally get it.
One reason why some farmers can't
hold their cotton Is because the cot
1on belongs to their creditors.-Char-'
Then you spoke a great trutih and
one we have been ,trying to inculcate
for many years. Cotton con.venitions
and mass meetinigs will n.ever solve
the problem. The farmer must be
come independent If he wants to hold
the key to the situation. And what
is the use going on maiking cotton
when it costs more to make it than he
gets for it?
Chief Justice Jones was at one time
editor of the Newberry Herald and
News, which is now a Blease organ,
but we thinmk we shall vote for him
for governor just the same.-Ander
son Daily Mail.
The Herald and News is not any
body's organ. It has not been so
many years ago, however, when Mrrj
Jones and Mr. Blease were on thie
same side of the political fence and
grazing in the same political pasture.
That was some -years after he was
connected with this newspaper, how
If we are not mistaken, Greenville
was the first city to pass an ordinance
prohibiting useless automobile noises.
Spartanburg ha.s since adopted a sim
ilar ordinance and now the Columbia
Record is calling for the adoption of
one in Columbia. Greenville leads and1
the others follow.-Greenville Pied
It is easy enough to pass ordinan
ces, but how about enforcing them?
We would not care .to havle any more
ordinances until we see some of them
enforced. No criticism of the police
officers. They can do only as they
are directed by those to whom they
owe their positions.
"Who will be the first progressive
citizen to give $5,000 to the play
grouind mov)n-.ent?' This is not ask
ed of any One in Newberry. We
1would be afraid of heart failure if
we were to suggest any such amount
to any of our good and progressivel
citiz--ns. The Charleston Post asks
it. But why not some of the good
people of Newberry who have made
their money here come across and
help th-e Idler's park. It would be a
good investment and we have a num
ber of good people who could give a
good big sum and never miss it and
at the same time do a good deed. It
I might not cause heart failure.
We feel much satisfaction in the
prospect of Blease running for gov
ernor against one man who is the
choice of the opposition. The News
is confident that with only the two
in the race, Jones will defeat Blease
by a large majority. It is also our
opinion that Jones is only one out
of a dozen men in the State either of
whom alone in the race with Blease
could defeat him. This is our candid
view of Blease's strength.-Greenville
Why should there be a desire to
confine the running for governor tol
only two. Is this not a free country
amd can't as many as desire enter the
race. Let Richards and Hyatt and
Manning and McLeod and Duncin and
all the rest who are so inclined get
into it. By the way, we judge from
Duncan's paper that he is going in the
race for governor.
"A system of interstate highways
built according to a standard uniform
width and maintained in the best pos
sible condition at all times of the
year, a campaign toward the elimina
tion of dangerous curves and death
inviting grade, crossings in addition
to other matters- regarding the im
provement and maintaine*e of high
ways were among the more important
recommendations made by the federal
and State highway commissioners,
who took part in the thre days tour
and conferences last week in New1
York, Massachusetts and Connecticut,
conducted under the auspices of the
Touring club of America." -
It must come to that and is comingji
fast. Grade crossings must go, and
we are so anxious to see Newberry 4
lead ,in at least one forward movement
that we have i.nsisted on the change
between Newberry and Little Moui
tan. We do not like to see our coun- a
ty come trailing along behind when1
we have~ such a fine opportunity to
lead a movement that is on the way
and at a time when it will cost us a
That. was a very enthusiastic meet- (
ing of the farmers in the court house
on Monday, and it was a representa- ,
tive meeting as well. If the' price of
cotton had remained around 12 cents
and a meeting had been cal,led the
attendance would probably l\ave beeni
small. The point we 'desire to m,ake
is .that the farmer will not be aroused 1
and try to look,after his interest until
he is forced to 'do so. Another point'
Is that it is useless to talk about regu
lating,the price of. cotton ,until the
farmer can take his cotton and throw 2
it under his ;shed and sit on .It and
say: "This is my cotton. It.cost me
14 cents a pound to make it. I must
have 15 cents. If you want It at that
price, Mr. Manufacturer, you can <
have it. If not it can remain here. It ]i
belongs to me." Until then it will
not amount to much to hold meetings 1
and pass resolutions.
This is plain talk but it is true talk
and we just as we.l understand the
situation. You can not do~ as you
please with your cotton when you owe
some one else for it.
Some newspapers like to hiarp on
the idea that a man who holds an of
fice and aspires to anothe~r should re-1
sign the one he already holds. There
is no rhyme or reason or even sense
in this idea. A man holding a posi
tion in civil life and desiring a better
one does not quit his present job un
til he has secured the one desired. He
would be a fool if he did. The idea
that he should act otherwise with a
public office unless his candidacy in
terferes with the performance of his
duties is just one of those slushy
things that in some way gain expres
sion from the minds of people who
ought to know better.-Spartanburg
Of course there is no rhyme or rea-k
sn in reigning before vou et thet
other job, but the act of resigning
was accorded to Judge Jones as an ac1
of great patriotism and self sacrifice
Of course, when one goes after an
other job and gets it. he should then
lay down the one i held and not try
to have a monopoly of offices, but
there is no use to give up one "holt"
until you get a good grip on another.
For if you did, you might be a states
man without a job.
"The real estate owner should favor
good roads because they would en
hance the value of his property. The
farmer should favor them because
they will make it easier for him to
cultivate his crop and market his
produce. The merchant and business
man should favor good roads because
they will bring them more business.
The profekonal man should favor
good roadg,because if the community
is prosperous he will stand a better
hance in the community. The labor
ing man should favor good roads be
ause they mean more jobs and bet
ter wages. We don't know of a class
>f citizens that good roads would not
benefit. The quickest and most ef
'ective way, to get good roads is by
jonds. When you have an opportu
ity, vote for bonds for good roads
vnd help make your county second to
ione in the State."
'The above is from a North Carolina
aper. It is true and is worth while
hinking about even if you do nothing
)ut think, because if you think along
he right line long enough you will
)egin to act righ.t after awhile. We
lave remarked time and again on the
Ldvantages of good roads and every
ne will agree as to that, but the
luestion of getting them is the thing.
hese North Carolina people are right.
Phe only way to do it right is by a
)ond issue. That is the fair and equi
able way to build them, and it gives
rou the roads in th6 present genera
ion. Everybody favbrs good. roads.
t is not a question of favoring them,
~ut-a question of being willing to pay
or them. And no better paying in
estment could be nmee for all classes
f our citizens than money invested in
ood roads. They are coming, only
e would like to see them come in
ur day and generation.

iagnitude in Newberry. The storm
ng reigned supreme and from his
rone flashed forth the lightning and
ealed the thunde'r tones in a fierce
attle of the elements that struck ter
or to the 'hearts of the nervous citiz
s. The storm raged with fury s
e wind and the rain met and mingled
rlth the incessant bombardment of
he electric current to the accompa
iment of the roar of the thundering
omonade. The canopy of old Jupiter
'luvius seemed to have been rent as
nder and the stars that "pin down
e curtain of the night" to have lost
heir bearings. While the storm was
~rand in its dis-play it was awful in'
s vividness to the frighten-ed behold
rs. Seconds seemed minutes to many

ngues of the deadly bolts from the
urcharged atmosphere leaped in ev

arth in a blinding embrace while the

nd startled space. For a while it

ot soon to be forgotten is the electri
al display of September 21, the au
umnal equinox of 1911.
Although it was very much of a
tormn, and covered a general area, no
asualties are reported. The greatest
tamage heard of was the burning of
e new barn of Mrs. Minnie Cald well,
n her place near Mt. Pleasant
hurch, by the lightning.
Th vari& exp-ienes of all whoj
were caught in the storm would doub
less fill a book.
Mr. Stanmore Langford, whose du
ties at the office of the. Southern Pow
er company keep him there of night
says the popping of the lightning o
the wires was terrific, and that it wa
trying on the nerves when the light
