WE FAIL AS A HUM ORIST.
We publish elsewhere an editorial
from the Observer in reply to an edi
torial in The Herald and News of last
Tuesday on "A Curious Presumption."
We had no idea the Observer would
take us so seriously. Next time we try
to get funny, we will labei it.
THE HOSIERY MILL.
The editor of the Anderson Mail
says he has recently paid a visit to the
State penitentiary and to the hosiery
mill, and he finds everything as clean
aWd neat as can -be made. That he
made an Inspection of the mill and
found It as clean as any mill- in the
State. He adds: "We are no expert
on such matters, and are not prepared
to take issue. with the State board of
heelt, yet it is hard to see wherein
this aill is such a death trap 1
as it is said to be. The trouble is,
the whole matter is now a political
,one, Instead Of bing taken up on its
We do not propose to take issue
with the Mail on what is said about
the condition of the mill, because wel
have not seen it in many years, and
wouldn't know if we saw it, and no of
doubt the Mail states the case as its vi
editor saw it, and without political be
bias, because he would have none. But B
why should he charge political bias
to the State board of health? Are they
not entitled to be considered just as Li
free from political bias and prejudice
as the editor of the Mail? IS not their
opinion entitled to as much weight? al
We do not recall now the personnel c
of the State board of health, except l
the chairman, Dr. Robert Wilson, Jr., c
of Charleston, -and we have been
thrown with him intimately during the f
last nine months, and we believe if so
there is one honest, straightforward, m
.manly man in South Carolina, who is
not influenced in this mattei- or any m
other, by politics, and who would con- i
sider it *on its own merits and who te:
'would be honest and unprejudiced in Cl
that consideration, that man is Dr. he
Robert Wilson, Jr., chairman of the da
State board of health. It seems to ~
us that the Mail is not only taking is-b
sue with the State board of health, to
but it is making a severe arraignment G(
of the board, when it says that they wl
are not considering it, the -hosiery nc
mill, on its own merits but are making
ja polltical question out of it.
We boinestly belie' o that Dr. Wilson
is as conmlp*tent to pass judgment on er
this matter. and is as far from politi
cal influence and prejudice and as pa- ty
* triotiC, as the editor of the Mail. We JC
feel we must say this much in justide
to Dr. Wilson. We have no inter.st in
the hosiery mill. If we had our way .b*
we would put all the convicts on the) ti<
* public roads.
