roirhia. October 11th. Special:
The next event of State-wide import
ztce is the State Fair, whichi is to be
he(ld in Columbia, beginning October
Soth and ending November 3rd.
For more than forty years-two
generations-this has been the one
event n which all the people of the
-,,,tate haN e joined. In previous years
it has not been so much the exhihits
that have attracted the people from
t very part of the State as it has been
the community of interests, so to
k speak. of the people of this State.
There has been a general desire on
the part of the peopl- in one part of
Carolina to meet and know more oi
the people in other sections and that
is why they have come to the State
Fair. Families have s -attered and
more people can be me: in Columbia
during the State Fair than any one
other place in the same time and that
is the primary cause of the growing
success of the State Fair. As the
State has prospered so has the Fair
in its exhibits. Year by year better
cattle and better stock have come into
South Carolina and it is at the State
Fair that much of this enthusiam is
spread by the exhibition and sale of
that which is best in cattle, stock,
poultry and labor saving machinery.
President J. Arthur Banks. a suc
cessful business man from St. Mat
thews, who is now President of the
Association, and Secretary J. M. Can
tey are emphasizing these features of
the exhibits and the applications for
space already indicate all the exhibits
that can be housed will be in Colum
The Fair Association has recently
bought a large steel frame structure,
which it is hoped will be in readiness
for use for the approaching Fair.
For those who like racing there will

thorough touch with the modern pace

on two days of the week there will
be fine football games; *n Thursday

game is scheduled.
Special attractions will be provided

President Banks has contracted to
have a modern aeroplane make two
flights each day and this ought to be
a great attraction for those who have
not yet seen this modern wonder.
The railroads being in thorough ae
cord with the ideas and purposes of
the State Fair have announced espe
cially low rates for the touand trip
from all points, and those who do not
come to Columbia for the State Fair
to catch the political pulse, or to see
their cousins or sweethearts will have
ample to see in the 1911 exhibits
that will be provided, and which
promise to be finer and more worth
studying than ever before.

"Caprice of the Majority."
Orangeburg Times and Democrat.
It is surprising to an old fashioned;
Democratic newspaper like The Times
and Democrat, which TeIieves in the
people and is willing to trust them
with all power, to hear newspapers
claiming to be Democratic and pro
1fessing to believe in a republican form
of government like we have, talk of
the "caprice of the majority" and of'
I the people being a mob. Such news
papers, if they would confess it, be-'
lieve more strongly in a monarchal
government, in which the people have
but little part, and where the "ca
price of the majority" Is not tolerat
ed, than they do in a republican gov
ernment such as we have in , this
glorious land of ours.
There has been considerable discus
sion of the "Initiative, referendum
and recall" of late. These proposed
reforms would enlarge the powers -of
the people very mater'ially and yet they
are fought by men who have been call
ed -to high station by the people. Gov
ernor Manin, of Virginia, recently said
he would decline to hold office under
a system that allowed the recall of
officials. He went on to say "it would
reduce the officeholder to the svei of
a puppet. It would make him a reed.
swayed in the wind by every breath of
public prejudice. Such a position1
would be unsupportable, and if It ever
comes to pass in my State I shall re
tire- fromn politics. I,.desire to have
nothing to do with a system."
The Anderson Mail, which we be
lieve claims to be a Democratic news
paper and a believer in a republican
form of government, gives its endorse
ment to what Goy. Mann says and
pronounces it sound doctri- 3. The
Newberry Herald and News, another
supposed Democratic newspaper and
a believer in our republican form of
government, endorses .what Gov'. Mann
says as well as what the Mail says
about it, and says "this sounds very
muich like Goy. Mann niad been read
ing The Herald and News," and sneer
ingly goes on to say, "of course, it is
good Democratic doctrine, All this
stuff about what we call recall of
judges is the worst kind of political
The Times and Democrat does not
agree with the Mail that it is sound
doctrine to deny the people the right
to recall a judge or any other official
that fails to do.his duty, nor with The
Herald and News that " all this stuff
about what we call recall of judges is
the worst kind of political rot." if the
people have sense enough to elect.
governors, congressmen, senators and
other officials of high and low degree,
they surely have .sense enough to sus
tain officials when they do right or
recall them when they do wrong. So
far as we are concerned we would
rather trust the "caprice of the ma
jority" than the "caprice of one man,"
whether he be a judge or some other
A "caprice of the majority" may
have elected Gov. Blease to the high
est office in South Carolina, but The
Herald and NEWS would hardly claim
for that reason that the people can
not be trusted to exercise political au
thority over all officials. Neither
would The Times and Democrat. The
fact that the people did not do in that
case what The Time3 and Democrat
would have done, is no evidence that
the people did not do as well as the
Old Court House.
