Tuesday, April 9, 1912.
We ax? still anxiously looking for
our copy of Felder's book.
Speaking anarchically, we glory in
this delightful spring weather.

We are confident that Doc. Cook was J

And still the wonder grows that
Governor Blease's appointment of a
Tirjcrrn sorter was not carried to the
XX W3* V x courts
to have its legality passed upon.
Talkiug about anarchy, what is a
good name for defiance of law ana 01
constituted authority by those who
would disregard the law because it is
sought to be administered by one not
to their liking?
We don't know which is worse?the
poetry of Editor Banks, of the Anderson
Mail, or the envy of Newberry
which Editor Gardener, of the Greenwood
Daily Journal, is constantly displaying
in the strained jokes which he
seeks to direct at Newberry.
A gentleman from the country says
when he heard the fire whistle on
Saturday morning at 3 o'clock he got
down his shot gun, thinking possibly
it was the roar of one of those blind
tigers that people say are in Newberry,

The Herald and News has received

very much pleased to print, in regard

If Beattie. the Virginia wife murderer,
had been convicted in South
Carolina, he would probably have had
a pardon by now.?Greenwood Daily
It would hardly have done him much !
good after he was dead. But maybe
the Greenwood Daily Journal failed to
notice that Beattie had been electro
The Greenville Piedmont suggests j
that if fear of arrest is what keeps :
Felder away from South Carolina, the I
committee might meet him and take |
the testimony over in Augusta. The
idea is entirely practicable; but if fear
of arrest is one of Mr. Felder's reasons
for not coming to South Carolina, it
is not the only reason. The main reason
is that Mr. Felder has already got- j
ten all the money there was in it, and
that was absolutely and entirely all
that he wanted. He cars no more

th^ir laws than hp does about the Fiji
islanders. Whiie it can hardly bo said
that be s:ot all he wanted, his interest
ceased when he realized thni" he had
gotten all that hp woaltl likely he ab'C
to get.?Yorkville Enquirer.
According to our way of thinking,
that about sizes up the situation.
The Mullins Messenger tells the
story of a badly taught parrot which
perched itself upon a pulpit durii4f
service, and in the midst of the sermon,
looking at the preacher and the
congregation, said :"D?n you! D?n
you! D?n you!" The preacher and
the congregation fled, but there was
an old woman on crutches who could
not get out. The parrot faced the
good old woman with a continuation
of his "d?n you!," and the woman,
being unable to do anything else, raised
her crutch and said, "D?n you
Mr. Blease has said some things
which we have not approved of, and
do not approve of, but in reviewing
some of his harsh language, we might
think of how .many times the "d?n
you" was applied to him before he
sot a chance.
The Spartanburg Journal very
thoughtlessly says that Hon. Cole. L.
Blease continues to give daily illustrations
of his eminent qualifications
to,resume the practice of law at New
berry, s. u.?u-reenvuie jrieuxuuun..
Newberry, S. C? is a mighty good
place to practice law in, to furnish
governors, or for anything else. We
don't mean that people from Spartanburg,
S. C., or from Greenville, S. C.,
would be able to practice law here
without some additional special training,
'but they might learn.

planted the Stars and Stripes on the
North pole, in nomination for the vicepresidency,

in Newberry, but he is a Newberriai]
Former Chief Justice Jones is toning
down his remarks a little. According
to the Greenville News report
of his speech at Fountain Inn on
Thursday, the ex-chief justice does
"not mean to say that every man whc
voted for Governor Blease is an anarchist."
Even if half of them were an
archists, South Carolina might put
Russia to shame along that line. But
it is something to have the minority
admit that not every one of the majority
of 1910 is an anarchist.
The former chief justice went further.
He even went to the -extent of
saying he knows "that there are a lot
of good people throughout the State
who cast their ballots for him."
Shades of Gonzales! Is it possible
that it is admitted there was a single
decent citizen who voted for Blease in
It is with much concern for Mr.
Jones that we await any further admissions
from him. It wouldn't take
many like that for him to admit himself
out of the favor of those great,
good, glorious and pure people whose
hearts are pained that South Caro!

beck and call, is bound straight for

Mr. Carlisle, of the investigating
committee, brought out in the testimony
last week, and the newspapers
feature it, that Mr. Dominick had a
pass, which he used on the C., N. &
L. railroad, and charged railroad fare
against the State. Mr. Dominick did
not secure his pass 011 the railroad by
virtue of his position 011 the commission,
but for his service as local coun
sel, and the State has no right to receive
credit for railroad fare when
Mr. Dominick was using the pass, and
there is absolutely nothing in the intimation
that it was wrong to charge up
railroad fare. If Mr. Dominick had received
the pass on account of his position
on the commission, then it would
have belonged to the State, and it
would nave been wrong for him to
charge railroad fare when using it.
The State when paying the committees
to investigate should specify an
amount for expenses. This amount

exp^n -^s, iin i th-en if a member oi' the

things, says, "that a person familiar
with the political situation can stand

success in their home city.
