We publish a card today from j
Sheriff Rector, oi Greenville, but tht
article to which ho refers was not
"written for The Herald and News
but was copied from the daily papers
and purported to be a news story
Mr. Xorw od is reported to have j
- - * 1 An I
said in ms spccuu at wcchmuc vn
Saturday that any "educated" man
that would vote for Cole. Blease is a
"skunk."' That is rather an ugly word
for a refined and educated gentle- j
man to use. The one consolation in it i
is that his saying so does u1 t make
Newberry'can boast of ..a.ing the
best mill villages in the State, li is admitted
that they are populated by the
best class of mill people. A Mr. Norwood,
of Greenville, calls this class
of citizens "skunks" and a "scurvy
lot." "They will resent it to a man
ail over the State, and it will make
other votes for Blease. The opposition
is getting desperate.

s going to be. The business men of the
State are in behind the effort and it
is 'bound to succeed. It should have
the hearty endorsement and encour\agement
of the press of the State. Less
politics and more constructive business
methods is the proper slogan.

of Mayor Jennings, forgetting that
tnis senatorial campaign is noi a race j
ior beauty.?Greeuwood Journal.
No, to be perfectly irank with you,
we do not. Some other paragrapaers
took up th.e same point and intimated
that "Lang" was too formidable for
us. iThat is the very point. He is not
as "formidable" as he had been paint- j
ed- Oh, well, that is simply our,
opinion. Maybe "Lang" will proceed
to hurl ugly epithets al us for having !
an opinion. So long as lie calls us |
what we know we are not we are go
ing to say nothing. Trie people have :
our permission to elect whomsoever j
The Columbia Record is surely hard
up. It sends some one to tine files
of The Herald and Xews and copies
en editorial from it about the details
of the one mill tax in which The-1
Herald and News did not agree with '
the governor as to the details of the
appropriation. That was in 1913 and
not 1914 as accredited. 'We still tl~;nk 1
that it is a good idea to let part of this
one mill tax be at the disposal of the .
county board of education instead of
all of it in the honds of the State ;
board. Unless you make the State the
unit for the exuenditure oall the
school fund and in this way give to j
each child the same amount of money :
and t..e same length or' school term,!
and when you do this you do away
with incentive for individual effort. ,
State Superintendent Swearingen
agreed with G v. Blease in toe view !
that the one mill tax should be a .
State board fund. At the 1914 ses-j
sion t'.ie one mill levy was made as

Swearingen desired. The Record is
certainly hard up for something. It
must be realizing that Gov. Blease
sure enough has the senatorial toga
and is gone v;ith it. i
How are we going to get the truth
about these campaign meetings. For
instance on their own account some
oi' the correspondents say that the Anderson
meeting was cuit4-Blease and
i;ro Smith, with Pollock a'favorite, and
describe the anti-Blease procession as
i tremendous affair. Then they quote
Governor Blease ;is saying from riie
:tar. ! that tn? profession included -Si)
nen and 2Z women, w iie the governor's
Vriends had gievn out *; hi B eas-badges

Th* n' were s*'V<ral hundred wearing
!:]?-.u- h;j(ig?'s and there you
could sec a cotton bloom as a button
hole bouquet. Some y i:ng ladies
bore a c uple Smit.i banners. Bui
there are a lot o: people wuo object
to wearing the badge of any man. And
badges and cotton blooms do n t always
indicate votes. The sentiment
oi the Anderson crowd, we should say,
was about equally divided between
Blease and Smith with possibly a predominance
of Blease supporters. But
you should remember that all the cotton
mill operatives were at work and
so were many farmers.

of the roads before the plan
can be successfully carried out. The
two most important questions before
the people today are the improvement
or' our rural schools and t>.e building
I* better roads.
You may talk about the improvement
of the State and law and o'der
and almost everything else as much
as you please but until something
is done to improve the rural schoois

there "is not going to be much change

cities and towns have grown to the

but in order that this section may

is to get better schools and better
