Rosemont cemetery has been sadiy
neglected in the recent past, and is today
a reflection upon the city of NewS%/vwwtr

eion, and. there seems to be very little
evidence of any effort to keep them
down. The fence is in a dilapidated
condition, with a large number of the
panels off. The whole cemetery shows
a crying need of some care and attention.
If those who frave the matter in
charge are not going to look after the
city of the dead, there should be some
effort by those owning squares to take
the necessaxy steps to provide a meth-1
od by which it may he looked after
and cared for.
Rosemont is a beautiful location for
a* cemetery. It would not take much
effoTt or expense to keep it as it

Certainly this is a matter which
should not be allowed to be neglected
It is a sad commentary upon a
Christian people to permit neglect of
the sacred spot where the dust of
their dead mingles with the soil.

would like to have a "preferential primary
on the candidates for the Democratic
nomination for the presidency,
if for no other reason than to let
those people of South Carolina, who
are claiming such an overwhelming1
sentiment for Gov. Wilson, know a few i
things." Of course The Herald and;

The Herald and News doesn't claim
to know all about it These Wilson
fellows are the ones who have claimed
to "know all about it." We only wish
we knew as much as they have claim- i
ed to know. But we can be very
modest, we think, and at the same
time claim to know about As much j
about it as they do.
The Anderson Intelligencer .an- j
nounces that Col. Leon M. Green has
taken editorial charge of that paper.
Col. V. B. Cheshire, the owner of the j
paper, says the business end of the
Intelligencer has reached a point
where he can no longer attend to that!
and edit the paper at the same time, j
and hence Mr. Green's editorial man- i
Mr. Green was formerly Columbia
corresponent of the News and Courier,
which asked for his resignation as j
correspondent or as member of the j
governor's staff. Mr. Green promptly
resigned as correspondent.
Mr. Green is one of the, most cap- ,
able young newspaper men in the!
State. Because he refused to resign
from the governor's staff rather than
from the staff of the News and Courier j
he has been made a target for most of |
the newspapers of the State.
This has been uncalled-for, and we ;

MR. GREEX'S ACCOUYT.
We have refrained from discussing
the account of Leon M. Green for spe- ;
cial detective services, under the em-1
ployment of the governor, because we j
have felt that the effort to twist the j
items into confusion by reason of the :
difference between a salary basis and j
a per diem basis was so apparent on
the part of some of the newspapers, j
and their attacks so nermeated with
political prejudice, the attempted
flings would so disgust the thinking j
pepple tt^ev^vould fall of tjaeir own i
weight. T*he Yorkville Enquirer discusses
the matter at some length. "Of;
course, the 'regularity' of the demand
for itemization is beyond question," it j
says, "but if any one who has kept up j
with the matter, regardless of which
side he is on, honestly believes there i
was any motive for that demand other j
ban a belief that it would embarrass
somebody, why he needs to study some
more. But now the itemization is out. j
That the itemization has been done
merely as a compliance with the law
is evident. Work of this nature could
hardly be compensated on any other
basis than by the month with expenses
added. But the account is interestS
ing. It shows that certain work that
I nnH imnAr+ant hae noon
|l?> UCV/COOai J C^JLIV*. * vu-ii W. wv/v/ii
and is being done, and people who
! really think are likely to be impressed
with the idea that if this work is to
be done at all, it is just as well that
there be no official publicity about it,
such as has been given. There is a
suggestion about it also that even if
Mr. Green was put on this detective
job as a kind of compensation for the
loss of his other job, he is evidently
giving value received to the best of
his ability, and except through a defr\r*

interference with his work. Of course,
since there is no question that Mr.
Green is working on a salary basis,

on a per diem basis, it will be easy i
enough to ridicule the alleged incon- 1
sistencies of the amount; but it will
be difficult?very difficult?td make
anybody see that there is anything
behind it all, other than a desire to
secure political advantage even at the |
expense of the public service."
Dr. Scherer's Success.
Dr. James A. B. Scherer is doing a
great educational work in California.
So much is apparent from internal
evidence in the new catalogue of
Throop Polytechnic institute, at Pasadena,
of which he became president at
the time of its reorganization and enlargement
in 1909. A physical equip- j
ment in keeping with the ambitious i
plans of the school has been provided, j
Within the past two years two majes- I
tic buildings have b^en erected and a
large structure to comprise an auditorium
and an art gallery is shortly
to be raised. During the past year
four friends of the school increased
its endowment by $250,000 at the same
time all debts on the property were
cleared away. A high standard is
maintained in teaching the applied
sciences and the essential humanities,
the chief aim being to produce skilled

also broadly cultured. The institute]
is the only school of technology west j
of the Mississippi, and situated in a I
region of large industrial develop-j
nients and much larger latent resour- [
ces, it has wisely sought to relate it- J
self closely to the industrial problems
of its environment. Dr. Scherer is an
admirable director of this great work.
Educated at Roanoke college and i
Pennsylvania college, he was for ilv> J
years teacher of English in the imperial
college at Saga, Japan; for six
years professor of history in the Lui
theran seminary at Charleston, and I
for four years president of Newberry |
college. In this wide range of prjfVisional
work, supplemented with authorship
and extensive travel, his
large natural abilities have ripened to
a rich maturity. It is pleasanr to
know that on the Pacific coast ho nas

Editor of The Herald and News:
1 have just read the proceedings of
the cdtavention, and note, in one par- j
ticular, that they did not conform to j
the general rule or custom. It has
been the custom to name as% delegates
at large to tne national convention,tne
two United States senators, the governor,
and the chairman of tne State
executive committee. But Blease's opuonents
had declared- that he would !
not be named if they could prevent it. j
Wei;, while we peace-loving farmers
regret such a state of affairs, the
Menus ol' Elease should be well pleased
to see the antis do the wrong thing 1
at the right time. It simply shows
the dagger thrust at Blease, but
landing in the hearts of the majority
of the people of South Carolina, for
the majority must have elected him

like a negro?quick to forget mistreatment
if you do not remind him of it.
But the antis, like the old time aristocrats,
never knew how to manage the
negro and they keep our minds fresh

But the- reformers, quick to forget,
went into the fold until they elected
another poor boy governor, and then j
the howl went up and will not go down
until t le people stand true to their j
colors and put it down. And when J
quiet is restored, we may all come'j
back into the fold again, but let us
have our governor the second term.
It's customary. The farmers have
grown tired of strife and vituperation.
