After the rains will be a mighty fine
time to use the spLi-log drag.
It is gratifying to note that the colleges
and schools throughout the
State are having good openings. Education
is the most important question
before the people of South Carolina.
The sub-committee of the State executive
committee meets in Spartanburg
today to begin its investigation
of the first prii/wry - this first meeting
coming four week's alicr the primary
v and only 0:>' weeks be lore the general
election on November 5.
Some of those who were loud in proclaiming
Senator Tillman's patriotism
when his famous pronunciamento was
issued on Saturday 'morning before
the primary do not seem to be favorably
impressed with the senator's recent
utterances. We are prone to determine
according to our own yiew-yumi.
"HE THAT IS WITHOUT SIN."
"He that is without sin among you,
let him first cast a stone at her," were
the words of the text of a strong sermon
by the Rev.v Edward Fulenwider,
in :h? Lutheran Church of the Redeemer
on Sunday morning.
There is a condition prevalent in
this country, and particularly in South
Carolina, at this time, to which these
words of the Master might find peculiar
application. This is a commercial
age, and correlated to its ultra-commercialism
there has grown up among
us an ultra-righteousness which can
best be described as Pharisaical. It
was not in this connection that the
CnnHav mnrnins: used the
J? ycaaci ui w
words of the text, but in this connection
they are no less applicable.
There are people and there are
newspapers which have arrogated to
themselves all morality, and their high
falsetto is heard only through the
cloak of self-righteousness with which
they are always enveloped. Whether
consciously or not, they give the impression
that they feel that they can
do no wrong, and that those who 4.o
rot agree with thsm belong to an element
which "has come to be popularly
characterized in this State as "lawless."
They advocate measures in a
frenzy of fanaticism, and regard as
enemies of the State and as opponents
of decency all those who do not inv
stantly and entirely agree with them;
they oppose men and denounce as anarchists
those who do not likewise
Some good measures and some good
men in South Carolina have received
their severest blows from the unyielding
and bitter prejudices of their professed
There is some good in most men, and
certainly no man nor any set of men
has a monopoly of morality and right- j
eousness. No man is perfect, and this
would be a much happier world if we
would all look for the good in others
rather than for the bad.
f WHEN IS TIME UP?
On the afternoon of September 4,
the Daily Piedmont published the following
card from Mr. C. L. Verdin, a
member or tne ureenvine Doara 01
Editor Piedmont: The law provides j
that the registration books shall close
thirty days before the general election.
The election will be the first Tuesday
in November, which will be the 5th,
day of November, therefore this September
the 4th wil be the last chance
to obtain a registration certificate.
C. L. Verdin,
Member of Board.
it is understood uiai me uuaiu <jl
registration in Anderson county is
siill registering voters of that county
and that it will continue to do so
until after the first Monday in October.
Judging from the following
paragraph which is taken from the
Newberry Herald and News, the Newterry
board will also issue registration
certificates until after October 7.
"Inasmuch as there is a suggestion
of an independent ticket ai the general
election, it behooves every Demor-mt
anH ewprv vntpr in Smith Carolina
to look up his registration certificate
and if he has none to get one on the
first Monday in October, as that will
be the only time that the books of
registration will be open before the
According to the Pee Dee Advocate
the board of registration closed its
work in Marlboro county on September
It. seems to us that the same law
applies to every county in the State,
ther-fore we can not understand why I
Anderson and Newberry counties
should be an exception, if they are as;

\Yh?n the paragraph in The Herald
and Xews was written, i: had not occurred
to us that the first Monday in
October came less than thirty days before
the general election in November,
and of course the same law applies to
Newberry and Anderson counties that
applies to the balance of the State.
The law requires that the books of
registration shall be closed thirty days
before the general election, therefore
there can be no registration certificats

election in November, as the first Monday
in October is less than thirty days
before the general election. The
board of registration for Newberry
county will observe the law; we are
& law-abiding people in Newberry and
will observe the law in this particular
as we do in everything else.
GOV. BLEASE'S ADDRESS.
The Herald and News publishes to
day the full text of Governor Blease's
address to the people of South Carolina,
in which he calls upon the executive
committee speedily to assemble
and declare the result of the primary.
While emphatic, the address is temperate
in tone, and clearly and concisely
sets forth the governor's position.
The address has been severely attacked
by some of the newspapers of :
the State, and has been termed by one .
a "gratuitous insult" and has been j
construed by others as a threat. We 1
see nothing in the address to justify
either construction. Senator Tillman
has used much stronger words in call-t.
ing upon the committee for action and '
in deploring the delay. Former Governor
Heyward, in a card which The
Herald and News publishes today,
urges the committee to lose no further
time. Gen. M. L. Bonham, county
chairman of Anderson, in an inter- j
* "J ? 4.1*. 1 f A I

the Democratic party of a speedy dec-j1
laration of the result of the primary.!
That the people are restive there can j
be no doubt, and the causes are" not j
far to seek. In the first place, the
charges of fraud which have been;
brought are blanket charges, covering [
the whole State, without specifications,
"* *A? - 1 ? ? ? -- /n A QO

if a solicitor upon the opening of a p.
term of court would state to a grand -i
jury that he understood that there
was crime in the county, and ask the
grand jury to investigate the matter, }
without handing out specific bills of 1
indictment. In the second place, the j ;
man who has a majority of the votes i
cn the face of the returns is repre- j;
sented on the investigating committee i
by a minority of the committee, and <
the contestant, who on the face of the j -
returns nas a minority or tne voies,; 1
and who *is bringing the charges, has j
a majority of that committee. The.'
chairman of the sub-committee has;!
-been active in the political life of the:
State during the past several years, I
and in the legislature during the past'
session, and since he has been parti-1.
cularly bitter against Gov. Blease. On!
his trip to Atlantic City he was met I
in Charlotte by two members of his
icommittee and a plan arranged for the;
invesugciuuu. JLUS micc uicmucifc ui j
the committee who are supporters of;
Gov. Blease were not consulted as to\
this plan, but seem to have been ignored
at that time.
Four weeks after the first primary
a meeting is to be held today.
This is no attack upon the commit-j
tee. It simply states the facts, as we|
understand them, and in view of these
facts, it is not hard to understand why j
the people have become "restive, - as!
the News and Courier puts it.
We sincerely hope there will be no
further delays, and that the committee
will take speedy action and declare
the results of the primary.

While I am giving no record of the'

w n YTot-t-c whocp name von have!
seen on the council from the organiza- i
J tion of the congregation until the present
time, and who is still serving as an
elder, has been superintendent of the
Sunday school for twenty-nine years,
and is still serving as superintendent.
He has a good, live Sunday school, j
and his long service speaks much for j
his devotion to his church and congregation.
During the thirty-one years of the
history of this congregation, there
have been 60 deaths. Of course not all
of the sixty were members by confirmation,
but they were members either
by confirmation or baptism. This record
shows that there has been an
average of nearly two deaths a year,
cilice the congregation was organized.
In a period of thirty-one years, one
hundred and eighty children have been
given to the Lord in holy baptism,
making an average of nearly six children
each year. During these thirtyone
years, seventy-five couples have
been married, either the bride or the
groom being a member of the congregation,
and in many cases both of them
were members of St. Phillips.
I am informed that the church book
now* has placed on it the names of
150 as members of the church, showing
fifteen deaths of confirmed membere,
and twenty eight transfers, leaving
a membership of 107, very nearly
ail of whom are active members. This I
shows quite an increase since 1881,
when the congregation was first organized
with 21 members. The congregation
has grown so large that it
will be necessary in the near future to
enlarge the church in order that all
the people who worship at St. Phillips
may be seated. The people of j
this congregation are to be congratu-j
Iated upon their church activity.
nnT.ir.or thpcp thirtv-one vears they!
"u""e . - - .
have had many changes of pastors, but
the church never fails to come to the
front. We pray God's richest blessings
upon this church and upon its
people, and may they accomplish
greater things in the future than in

Vaughn, erstwhile superintendent of
the South Carolina I. O. 0. F. orphanage
at Greenville," who sawed his way
to liberty from the jail there on the
night of June 26, where he had been
confined on charges of criminal misconduct
toward inmates of the orphanage,
was arrested today in a Baiuxnoie
csunciay school. Vaughn's arrest
was brought about by Mr. R. E.
Allen, Jr., young eon of Mr. H. W. Al- |
len, of Greenville. Mr. Allen, who
r^.a-np to Baltimore a few days ago to
accept a position in a bank here, de-!
tected Vaughn as both were on their!
way to Sunday school. Following:
Vaughn until he entered the church, j
Mr. Allen then turned and called detectives.
Accosted by Detectives.
Several minutes ai!tcr the detectives
received the message, they arrived on
the scene, and walking up to Vaughn,
notp^tivp Armstrong said, "Hello, '
Vaughn; what are you doing in Balti-1
more?" A hunted look crept'into the j
man's eyes and he made a movement |
as if to escape. The other detective
grabbed him by the arm and he was
taken to the headquarters office, where
tie denied to the captain of detectives
that he was the man wanted in Green-1
ville. Later, when confronted with a I
fffcture of hi?nself, Vaughn broke down!
and admitted that he was the- man
wanted. He was searched and* in a j
wallet in his side pocket was found!
$445; several newspaper clippings tak-j

to his escape from jail were also
Student at Medical College.
Since his arrival in thi6 city several
weeks ago Vaughn has been a student
c. . iliS i^altimoie Medical college,
where he was taking a course in medicine.
When interviewed tonight in
the central police station, wnere ne is
being held, Vaughn refused to tell anything
of his whereabout since he left
Greenville, except that he spent a
week or two in Norfolk. He appears
to take his arrest coolly and stated
that he was coming back to Greenville
in January -to fight the charges
against him. Asked who helped him
to escape from jail, Vaughn stated:
"Lots of friends in Greenville," who
would be willing to spend a lot of
money and time to free him of the
charge against him.
Officers Taking No Chancer /
Vaughn asked to be placed in a cell
in the upper room of the station house,
but as the police are taking no chances
on his escaping he was placed on the
lower floor. R. E. Allen, when interviewed
at the Central Y. M. C. A. of
this city tonight, said: "I was walking
on Eutaw street with several
wvnan t nntirfd a man on the
I1IC11UO o uvu 1 uwivv*
opposite side, who it seemed that I
knew. I walked over and was very
much surprised to stv that the man
was Vaughn. I followed him and sa\r
him enter the church, l asked one of
my friends to telephone the police and
I entered the church and watched him
until the officers arrived. He was
placed under arrest and as the police
were leading him away the man turned
to me and stated that he would get
Allen to Get Reward.
Mr. Allen stated that he telegraphed
v,io fathpr last nisiit to claim the
IV mo AM v - - w
reward which is offered. And tonight
Mr. Allen received a telegram from
his father which stated that Governor
Blease had been telegraphed and the
reward would be paid to his son. Marshall
of Police Farnan also received a
telegram from Sheriff Poole who stated
that he would leave Greenville tonight
for Baltimore. Vaughn is willing
to return to South Carolina without
extradition papers. Hyman Endel.
