STATE SHOULD MAKE UP DEFICIT
We publish from the S:ate newspaper
some letters of complaint by the
Confederate soldiers who participated
in the battle of Gettysburg.
It does seem, as one of these letters
states, that if the State of South
Carolina was going to offer a trip free
to the survivors of that battle that
the amount appropriated should not
have been limited, except the expenses
of all who were in the battle.
There are not a great many survivors
of this battle and it would be
a great trip for those who are able
to attend. The federal government
and the State of Pennsylvania are pro
viding entertainment for the veterans,
and the State of South Carolina undertook
to pay traveling expenses of
those from this- State. According to
Geceral Teague, who is distributing
this fund, the appropriation has been
exhausted and only sixty-four veterans
provided for. The total making
application and complying with the
rules according to General Tjirgue is
Th-e State newspaper very patriotically
offers to raise by private subscription
a sufficient sum to pay tie
railroad fare of the veterans who
have not been provided for. This is
very nice of the State newspaper, but
if the State of South Carolina is going
to undertake to furnish these veterans
free Transportation, she ought
to do it for all of them. If the money
should b? provided for by private subscription,
the legislature at its approaching
session ought to refund it.
There has already been a hearty response
to the appeal of the State
newspaper and the money will be
forthcoming. In Thursday's paper the
fund had reached $167.20.
Some time pgo The Herald and
News suggested that the automobile
owners get together and raise a fund,
secure the permission of the supervisor,
and arrange with the farmers
along certain roads to keep these
roads in good repair by the use of
the split log drag, scrapes, or whatever
tool was necessary.
In talking the matter over a few
days ago with Mr. C. E. Summer, of
the Summer Bros. Co., the largest
firm in town, he stated that he would
"be perfectly willing to cooperate with
the other automobile owners in the
county in the suggestion made as to
the maintenance of certain roads.
The Herald and News suggests that
Mr. Summer call a meeting of all automobile
owners, form an organization
and let that organization formu
late some plan. By cooperation we,
could maintain at a very small outlay
to each automobile owner, quite a
number of miles of good roads in
We would suggest that the road
across the county, known as the capital
to capital highway from the Lexington
line to the Laurens line be
put in condition first. This would
give the automobile owners a beautiful
stretch of thirty miles, about fifteen
in either direction from :he court
house and at the same time be a big
advertisement for the county, as a
grcat many automobiles pass from the
low country to the mountains along
this road. In addition to that, it
"would give a fine road towards Columbia
for at least sixteen miles.
This road has been worked by the
county, but needs constant attention,
and by having constant attention
given :o it would cost very little for
We hope that Mr. Summer will act
upon :his suggestion and call a meeting
of the automobile owners without
We notice that Governor Blease is
going to put the lid down tight at the
Isle of Palms during the Press asso
and make it very difficult to
St cure any refreshments at all. Well,
i: will make very little difference,
j as most of the editors confine their
| liquid refreshments to good pure
This is a mighty good time to use
the split log drag. We publish in this
issue an article from the federal de
partment of agriculture of roads or
road building. A litile cooperatior
and self-helf would keep the roads, 01
the main ones at least, in good repair.
We would gently remind the editors
of the Edgefield Chronicle and th<
Gaffney Ledger and the Bamberg Her
aid to read carefully the statcmen'
given out by Governor Blease as t(
the conditions at the Isle of Palms
during the forthcoming meeting of th?
Press association. Better go preparec
to meet the issue like little men.
The Orangeburg Times and Democrat
is mistaken when it says thai
The Herald and News "takes issue
with him (Governor Blease) in his attitude
towards Doctor Babcock."
There is no issue between The Herald
and News and Governor Blease
and so far as we know, be'rw-een Governor
Blease and Doc:or Bacbock
What we have been trying to say is
if the friends of Dr. Babcock who ar<
not the friends of Gov. Blease would b(
a little more careful in their statements
in regard to this matter, ii
would, be very much better for Dr
Babcock. Wha't we have been tryins
to correct is an impression whicl
" ~w ^ 4-V?-?-? Ar??nno r\-r*c* pCaty"i f a V* t

endeavoring to make, that there is ar
issue between Governor Blease anc
Dr. Ba.bcock and trying to find a reason
for it. For instance, the Orangeburg
Times and Democrat gives as i
reason for the issue that Dr. Babcocl
was appointed some twenty years age
by Senator Tillman when he was governor.
There is no foundation in fatfr oi
otherwise, so far as we know, for assigning
any such reason for the issu<
which does not exist.
The best thing for the entire situation
would be for these newspapers tc
stop discussing what they term an issue,
until there is an issue.
We publish in this issue a statemenl
from the board of trustees of the cit)
schools in regard to the importance

money sufficient to pu^in a new heating
plant and sewerage system in th(
Boundary street school.
In order to raise the money for this
purpose, the question of voting a oik
mill tax for two years is to he submitted
to 'the people of . the town ai
an elction to be held next Tuesday.
mis is a mauer in wnicn every citizen
is as much interested as the
board of trustees or as any other citizen.
If anyone doubts the necessity
for the need of money for this improvement,
he should at once go to
the Boundary street school and inspect
its condition. It is not a qu-es
ciun as lu wueuuer we ueea 10 increase
our school taxes, hut it is a
question of 'the continuance of the
school at Boundary street, for if this
improvement is not made, the hoard
of health would be derelict in its
duty to the children who attend
Boundary* street srhnnl and thp rpnrh
ers who teach there if they did not
condemn the building. Any one who
is interested in th? -education of the
children and their good health can
have no question as to how he should
vote at :he election on next Tuesday.
As to the insinuation of The Herald
and News that the Daily Journal seeks
"a chance to criticize adversely Gov.
Blease," we beg to remind Brother
Aull lhat in the one or two instances
in ;he past three years where we
have thought the governor was right
and not playing politics we >ave commended
his actions. His letter to
President Wilson is 2. case in point.
If The Herald and News wants to
be "absolutely fair" let it "adversely
criticize Gov. Blease:' every time it
thinks ho is playing politics.?Greenwood
The Hfrald and News made no insinuation
as to the Daily Journal. Our
remark was impersonal. We simply

stated the fact as the Journal knows.
It was no doubt a very trying ordeal
for the .Journal find one or two instances
in three years in which it
could say that Governor Blease was
right and could commend his ac:ion.
The Herald and X-ews has not agreed
with Governor Blease on a number
of Questions and has always frankly
stated that fact. The Herald and News
has always endeavored to be a newspaper
that points the news, and com
mends or criticizes pi-blic men and
measires whin in jt? ju'gme^t i: was
t its duty to ci-'J so.
