his "hot air" methods of keeping up

Some such question as this was to

We say why not? The sporting de
partment is the main feature of most
of our Institutions of higher learning.
A college without a good baseball team
- isnot in the swim in this day. And
we noticed that just the other day at
a fraternal meeting which was just a
little bit*tinged with politics one of the
speakers devoted his remarks to base

ment of sports?
The men in charge of the chaingang

-The pity is that more. effort was not

b 'ood work was done. .In
fact from what we can learn nothing
was done and some of the p6rsons who

the subject. The work is-now beyond

LOCAL OPTION SAFE.

Chief Justice Jones has .always stood
or) local option. It.3s also understood
that he stands for it now. While the
liquor Issue is not likely to cut much

quiet Indeed. If the gubernatorial can

We are uader 'the impression that
bth the gentlemen in. question were
one time very ardent dispensary ad
vocates. But then, of course, a man
has a right to chanige his mind, and,
possibly both have done so. It would
be a great blessing if we could ellm
inate the liquor issue from at least
one; campaig c.
Arthur. Gorman is the Democratic
eandidate for goWiernor of Maryland,
and because he frankly admits that, "I
- m -a Democrat and a politician-, and
I am not ashamed to plead guilty to
either charge," the Atlanta Constitu
tion thinks the ddin breaks.'The Con
stitution says that "the country has
long groaned under the locust-plague
of blatherskite, barrel-head politicians,
who spout reform promises and plati
tudes as candidaties, but who as of
fice-holders make the alleged subter
fuges and tyranny of the so-called
bgses look like lessons from a Sun
day schopl book."
They shave had some of them in
Georgia and we have had a taste in
South Carolina and ,we hope the Con
stitution is correct that, "It is a signi
ficant fact that, 'the country over, the
people are turning to straightforward,
* if mere, human beings for their candi
dates, as against those oily individuals
that wrap about themselves the gar
ements of sanctity. The revulsion is
natural, and it was inevitable. Natural,
because the people have found out that
your typical, unselfish, heaven , sent
"foe of the nachine'' and~ "friend of
* the people," skids into ofmee- on such
-mealy-mouthed mush only later to
turn tricks, betray promises, flout the
people and play politician in such
amazing style as the most consum
mate political ring-master of the old
school would not dare attempt."
have all seen him and the unfortunate
part about it is he still remains with
us. He deals in platitudes. He is in
the hands of his friends. He is too
modest to announce that he Is a can
didate and only runs whe.n his friends
-announce his name. Becter watch
him. He is a slick article.
ROADS AND "HOT AIR."
We publish from the Observer an
article from Mr. John W. Scott com
mending the Observer for saying that
"hot air" could not build roads, or
words to that effect. This is all very
true. "Hot air" can not build roads,
but a little "hot air" is very necessary
in creating a public sentiment in favor
building roads. The "hot aii"' artist
serves his purpose. The Herald and
News is willing to plead guilty to be
ing something of a ".iot air" artist on
the subject of improving the public
roads. Or even to make it stronger to
building permanent roads. Just what
Mr. Scott says is true and is what The
Herald and News has been claiming
all the time, that if the people who
live along the roads will not keep them
repaired there is very little -use toi
build them for evn the best contruct
ed roads will not resmain good without
some attention after they are built.
We drove over that road0from Mr.
Scott's residence to the Brick house
just to see what a good road could be 4
made by ;giving it attention. It was
put in no better condition when it
was first worked than the road in by
Mr. Kay Shannon's, but there is no
comparison between the two roads, for
the simple reason that, the one has
been given attention and the other-has
not. We ttated, after making the trip,
that the road from Mr. Scott's to the
Brick house was-in -better condition
than the mile of government road, for
the simple reason that it had had m1ore
^If ot'her citisens would,keep the
rads after the chaingang worked
them 'we could soon have some good
roads In the county, but If they are
going to expect the chaingang to do
that. work It will be a long time before
we have any roads in this county
worth while, and we should not have
them because the indifference of the
people will not demand them. Let us
have some "hot air" of the John W.
Scott kind .and *e will soon have
roads all over the county.
