L\. H. A I'LL, EDITOR.
Friday, July 1914.
"Jennings declares Smit'.i should
help show Bease's record." This is
big head line in the Columbia Record.
Too soon in the game lo cry for help.
Pollack and .Jennings have been doing
their best Ho det'at Blease and now
when tney see how the tide is turning,
or rather now \i Mas been running <n
the time, they cry alound to Smith to
come over and help us else we perish.
Jennings and Pollock have been
laboring hard at the job assigned them
and we guess they have found the paddling
difficult sometimes, but they
don't know anything at <^1 yet. Ti e
"water has been eddy and the sailing
line to what the t rrents in the up
country will be, and the cry to Smith
tf! pnmc nvw -inr] V?pln us will hp pypii
The Columbia Record devotes another
two column broadside at the editor
of The Herald and News and
brings up all the testimony that it
thinks might be detrimental to us in
the asylum investigation last winter.
Just what purp.se the Record is trying
to serve we do not see. The editor
of The Herald and News is not a
candidate for anything and is not an
issue in the senatorial campaign so far
as we can see. It shows one thing,
however, that the opposition to Gov.
liiease is getting desperate early in
the game and Uat it is willing to g?
to any lengths. As we have before remarked
we have absolutely nothirg
to be ashamed of or to withhold in
all of our connection with the asylum
and its investigation. We went there
frequently at the earnest request anu
invitation of the then superintendent
and thou ant we were in the 'house Oi
our friend, and everything we did or
said was in the interest of peace and
the good of the institution, if the
Record desires to discuss Gov. Blease
or his record and what he has done
or said it has a perfect right to do
so, but it has n"> right to be bringing
the editor o: T.:e Herald and News into
thex discussion. You must be desperate
indeed if you lay so much
stress upon any opinion the editor of
The Herald and News may have held
six months ago. You will have to
find something else to turn the tide o<
the votes against Blease. He is moving
right on to Washington.
T.ie candidates for governor and
the senate and the newspapers that
are opposing Blease are certainly giv
mg aoum Laroima a oua name as a
lawbreaking State. To read these deli\erances
one would think that South
Carolina was in a state of anarchy and
that the lawbreakers were certainly
numerous in the State. Is it justified
by the facts? Is there a reign of
f f Vi r*a?i rrl"? .-\n t" O an f V? Pn y?a1 i n O O T C
tci i ui uuuugiiuui ^aiuiiiia . xo
ii not a fact t'nat in certain st ,tions
oi* South Carolina the dispensary law
has been violated ever since was
forced on the people? Is it really
any worse new in those same places
than it was years ago? in Newberry
we know of a fact that it is not as bad
as it was here some years ago. The
liquor laws were violated during the
administrations o: Anse! and Heyward
just about as they are now and on
through all the other administrations
back to Gov. Tillman's day. We have
been in Charleston and other towns
in the State during the time that all
of these governors were in office and
thp conditions Avere about the same
all the time, except worse, possibly,
when the dispensary law was first
hoisted upon the people.
Tlie newspapers did not say much
about it when Ansel and Hey ward
were governors, but the violations
went on just the same.
Besides that, if our memory is not
at fault the Carev-Cothran act makes

but he is in tT.e running for congress j
and the opposition will have to find i ?
something else than the misrepresen- ! c

De.ith of Mrs. Luther Chapman. :,
On Friday, .June 26, 1914, the happy : t
home of Mr. Luther E. Chapman was ; t
s.irouded with sorrow when the wife ' c
and mother was called to the great. a
beyond. She was confined to her bed ! i
for only few days, so, therefore, we ; t
see tyiat in the midst of life we are ' s
in death. ; e
Mrs. Chapman was 37 years o ^
months. 20 days old. She leaves a devot- l]
ed husband, seven loving children a, de- *
voted father two lovfng sisters and ~
three brothers and a host of other e
relatives and friends to mourn her i 1
departure. Her body was laid to rest ( '1]

large concourse of friends and re!a- :

knew her. She is saadly missed by j ^
all, but oil! in that sad family circle c
her place can never be filled. Heri t:
loved ones are grieved by her ab-.s
sence, but are sustained by the hope , t'
of the comforter, and the hope of re- , s
j newing the tender ties in Heaven
I that were formed on earth, I n
S^e shall no more be with her I
friend and loved ones here, but we! tl
hope to meet her on the other shore j11
beyond the river of death. Oh! how's

in our blindness we can't under-'1

May the God of all peace comfort j -1
j the bereaved ones, and may they be ;n
! as true as she has been and strive T:
' lo meet her in a fairer land where h
J there will be no parting. The one who *
: said, "Come unto me and I will give I 11

I no more, her ears are closed to the ; t

Slavery has existed all through his- i
ory, but its existence nowhere gave
he world such qualms of conscience j
is did Southern slavery. It was j
jracticed throughout the Union at I
)ne time, but climate and occupation
nade it unprofitable at the North. It
barely possible that these circumstances
hastened its aibolition in that
>leak region. Tae institution was in- :
lerited from our ancestors without
hinking seriously of its evil features.

When the convention met at PliilaJelphia
to frame the constitution of
he United States, the delegates from
Maryland and Virginia plead for the
ibolition o: the slave trade, but every
Cort'iern delegate, except one, voted
-r its continuance. The South makes
listory but Northern men write hisory.
Small wonder it is, therefore,
hat the world has scant respect for
>ur section. It never l*new the South
ind Southern slavery. More's the
)ity. Mr. Lincoln said if he issued
he emancipation proclamation the
laves would probably murder the wo- I

Iringing him to our shores, and in

family. This is a mystery to
ome. Does Uncle Tom's Cabin atempt
its solution? Does history furish
a parallel? / }
His fidelity to his master during

his sturdy trait. His moral lapses
