>0W IS YOUR TIME.
We have stated several times fr- at
there were several hundred of our
subscribers whose time liad expired,
and that for the present we would not
take the names of these subscribers
from our mailing list, but would continue
to send t?-em t)':e paper. This
we have done.
We also requested any one who did j
not desire the paper and did not in- ]
- - . _ !
tend to pay for it to kindly notify tiie '
office. So far we have received notice j
from only two. We are very much j
gratified to believe that all of our sub-;
scribers are going to remain with us. j
Now we have one request to make, j
which is a very small one to each subscriber,
but a compliance with it will1
mean a good deal to us at this time.
This in a way is also a personal request.
It is this: Wre ask each one of these
subscribers whose time is out to send
us fi'ty cents before the first of April.
That is a very small sum for eac&
one, but 500 one-faalf dollars put together
make $250, and this would nelp
very much in these war times in paying
expenses. We believe that each
one of you is ioing to do this, and
we will be disappointed if you do not.
Please do not disappoint us. During
last week tJiirty-four subscribers made
payment on their subscription. For |
ttie next three weeks we want to see
that number greatly increased eacii
week, and we- do not believe that you
are going to disappoint us in this request.
Gov. Manning made two good appointments
of two good men wfren e
named Dr. Geo. B. Cromer, of Newberry,
and Dr. D. D. ^JVallace, o.' Spartanburg,
as members of tf:e State
board of charities.
WHY yOT DEWBERRY?
The Commercial Bank of Greenwood,!
one of the youngest financial institu- j
tions .in that progressive town, and,!
in fact, the youngest bank, has recent- j
ly made a loan to the county Oil' Green- ;
wood of $80,000 for a fraction 'less j
than per cent interest. If Greenwood
can borrow money at that rate
v.V.iy s':ould Newberry pay 5 per cent? !
1 We notice that at last tl:e governor's
mansion is about ready for the occupancy
of tine new chiei: executive, and
it is said that he will move in on (Tues- j
day. It is well. We hope it is in fine j
shape. . Among the improvements, we

bath tub for the servants' room. That is
1-roper. "Cleanliness is next to godlir.ess,"
some wise one has said.
/ COOPEB FOB CONGRESS.
If President Wilson names Congressman
Johnson for the new federal
judgship in this state, Gov. Manning
will fcave to name some one to
succeed him as representative from i

" ciiewho would fill the office more acceptably
than R. A. Cooper, of this
c aunty. Mr. Cooper needs no eulogy
rom us in suggesting him, for his
fitness can not be doubted. He is a
:;ood man for the place, and we tfcink
that is about all that need be said of
him. We do not know whether or not i
he has thought of the matter yet, but I
we are sure his appointment would !

not switch off after congress. "Tobe''
Morgan, of Greenville, is going to
make it interesting for any one who
goes in that race. And he would

even if Mr. Johnson tad undertaken
to succeed himself.
Morgan is a good campaigner, a man

In the publication of tlie county supply
bill the item fcr up-keep of tiie
sheriff's automobile was published one
thousand dollars. It should Lave been
one hundred dollars. It slipped by
the machine man and also passed under
the approval of the proof reader,
we suppose becausk one tnousand; doilars
would be nearer the cost of ^upkeep
ttian one hundred, provided the
sheriff used his automobile at all, or
to any extent in doing the county's
work. The Newberry delegation evidently
does not know much about the
up-keep of automobiles, or only in
tended to give to the sherirt a litue
suggestion of a part of the cost. However,
tLe appropriation is one hundred
dollars and not one thousand.
The logic of a letter wiMch Dr. E. S.
Joynes sends to the Columbia State,
exposing the folly of the tipping law
whici: has just gone into effect in South
Carolina, is as statesmanlike as its wit
is scintillating. Dr. Joynes thinks the
net result of 'freak legislation of tMs
sort is to promote "that which, in my
opinion, is the worst fact now in South
Carolina. I mean the disregard of
law."?yNews and Courier.
IWe did not see the article of Dr.
Joynes, but he is right, and just wcat
we have been trying to preach all the
time. All these laws about regulating
these little matters are simply so many
more laws to be disregarded and every
time we violate some such law the step
is so mucin, easier to the violation of
some other law, and we finally come
to have a disrespect and disregard for
all law. And yet we get upN and talk
about lawlessness and all that sort a.'
thing, and keep putting on the statute
books laws that we know are going to
bp violated every day.
FOR GOOD ROADS.
The Anderson Intelligencer and the
Union Times are making vigorous and
able fights for the voting a. ti'3e bond
issues in'tLose counties for the build-,
ing of roads. The election in both
counties will be held very soon. There
is no more laudable work in which
tihey cotild engage than to try to s-iow j
the people tftat the best investment j
they could make would be an in:\ est- j
merit of money in the building of roads.
In Richland and (jreenville tie delegation
put,'the bonds on without submitting
the question to toe voters. In
Anderson and UAion the peopte are to
pass on t?e question and the two pa- j
pers mentioned are making a noble!
fight to show the people that: they j
could make no better investment than
to v?te tine bonds and build roads. The
county that does not do something of j
t):e kind is going to be behind in the j
march of progress.
We wish the two valiant advocates
of this progressive step abundant success.
If they should lose they will
have the satisfaction of knowing that
t):ey have lost in a most wormy caus<.\
THE ASYLOI DEVELOPMENT.
We notice that Gov. Manning has
called a meeting of the newly appointed
regents of ti':e asylum, and that he
; says that he intends to arrange at this
| meeting to carry out the recommendaj
tinos of Dr. Herring as to the improvements
at he asylum.
The legislature has provided a levy
of one-half mill tax for this development
nn/? it is to run or five vears.
This will give about $150,000 a year.
This is what we recommended some
two years ago for the development of
! the State Park property, as !Mr. Arthur
j Kibl-er will no doubt recall, when the
j writer and Dr. Babcock went before a
special committee appointed to see
wftat should be done with the State
. . ?...
j Park, development. Instead, the legisl
Mature anpionriate-d ?20.000, which'
! meant rirtua'ly a stopping of the work, j
if that suggestion had been adopted j
: at tiiat ime, the institution could now
| be moved to the country, wfcere it
I It would be a waste of money to
i spend $150 000, or any other amount,
' on the TyroDertv in Columbia, unless it
I is decided to give up the work wfrich |
j has been begun in the country. That j
j work was begun and the land pur|
chased under Gov. Ansel's administration
and we do not belie1, e a better
| location for suci^ an institution could
| be found in South Carolina. The State '
! has already expended about a quarter \
of a million dollars out tuere and to j
| stop now would be the most unbusi- '
i nesslike proposition that could be con- j
jceived. The idea was to get plenty;
j o. Land, so that employment could be J
j provided for the patients. In fact, the
i modern idea of caring for tee insane I
is to get rid of the prison plan and to j
furnish employment for the patients. !
To stop that work now would be a j
criminal waste of the public money, |
and to spend it ;on the development of
the buildings in Columbia would be the
same thing. We were connected with
tl:a: development for three years and
gave a good deal of ;time and study to
it, and we would regret to see the
money of the people wasted by abandoning
ti'ze work at State Park, which
[ is an ideal location for such an instiI
I Of course, what we say will, we
j know, have no weight with the powers ;
that be, but we will feel better when'i
we get it out of our system. Because '
we feel that we know what we axe
, talking about.
We have not seen the new law under !
vWiiich Gov. Manning changed ti:-e re-!
gents, but we presume the improve- |
j ments are to be in charge of the new '
: board, and not in the hands o. a com- i
' mission. Whoever is put in cparge I
of it should not be changed every!
year, it is costly ana prevents a j
metrical development. If tJ:e plans j
laid out at State Park were carried out j
South Carolina w*>uld have one of the J
| best and most modern and most finely j
1 situated institutions of this kind in ;
j the United States. We fcave visited j
| institutions in North Carolina. Wash-j
; ington, New York and Massachusetts, j
j and some of tLem just built and build- j
! ing, and the State Park proposition |
properly developed is more ideal in j
view of location and everything that i
would contribute to a modern asylum j
than any tliat we saw.
I . ,
Dr. Heyman, who we notice is
spoken of as superintendent, was at
Central Island, where they were just
[completing an institution along the
'line oLtze plans laid out for State
! Park. lW<e spent a day at this institution.
We would like to see State
Park developed, but so long as the legislature
cl:anges policies for this
work as often as administrations
change, there is little hope, of having
it done, and the people may expect to
go on paying money and getting no j
