Our local contemporary says that
\he Prohibition Bill reminds us of!
ill Banks and Bill Ball." Why? we

The Columbia Record in speaking of j
iiie appointment of Mr. J. T. Johnson;
. s federal judge, says that in the elec-'
.an last year?we presume the pri- j
ary?he had no opposition. Pretty ;

If the public road to Prosperity had

An ex-newspaper man, W. W. Brad- j
Vy, gets a nice appointment at a sal-;
-ryof $1,800 from Gov. Manning. There j
are otJ:er newspaper people w:.o could
vrot get an appointment at $700 at the
hands of a former governor.?Abbe.
iHe Medium. , /
Yes, and lots of 'em that wont get j
$700 jobs now. And Mr. Bradley quit!
the newspaper business be ore he got j
i he job, and then he had a job besides
i.ad before lie got ?_is one. This, how:
ever, is a good appointment. Mr.
Bradley is a good man for the job. j
We have often said "You can not |

And you forget to mention vsome
more jobs ti at Abbeville ? as, such as;
chief justice of the supreme court, con- j

clever fellows.. We like 'em.

We desire to call especial attention |
to the school page in this issue of The i
llerald and News. It is of interest j
r.ot only to the teachers and children. I
but to all who are interested in the j
oductional advancement of our peoi

lnanj woman and 6Mld in Newberry

i irection of Mls-s Sadie <Jogg&ns ana
will be edited by her. We ask for her
the co-operation of teachers and trustees,
and all who are interested in the
education oif our people.
We -would be pleased to have the
Picture of soiBe o; the new school
i uildings, or any otfter pictures that
would be of interest, and would show
by pictures the progress that is making.
In fact, it is our purpose to make

ox is gored, or the viewpoint may .:av? I
some influence. Johnson is violating'
the letter of the law in taking, the job,
just like these fellows down here are .
holding ti eir seats in t:e legislature :
in open violation of the constitution, i
and then we stand up and bray about
law and order and the \iolation o law, |
while our own lawmakers openly and J
flagrantly violate it and we condone j
their violation of it. How do you expect
the blind tiger and the little feli
lows to obev and respect the law when I
your lawmakers and leaders openly j
violate it, and if you mention them i
they laugi.i at you. Well we Lave
mentioned it. Now laugh.
FREE RURAL DELIVERY.
One of tl e greatest conveniences j
that the government has conferred i
upon the people is the free delivery J
or man m t'.:e country districts, it is j
not only a convenience, but it nasi
come to be a necessity. It would make
life intolerable to think of doing without
it. We - confess ti at we do not
like to hear talk about doing away
with it or changing the system in any
way save to improve it.
I&very one should join Oands to make ;
this service better and to extend it
as far as possible. The government
should bp made to feel ti.at the peo
pie appreciate it, and that they will
never consent to giving it up. Let
us patronize these routes to t':e f ullest
extent and show that we appreciate
them. Every piece of mail handled
is a I:elp. Remember this, and support
the carriers by giving them all j
tb?e money orders, parcel post pack-1
ages and letters that you write.? I
The Journal is entirely correct. The
greatest thing the government has done \
Tor the people is the establishment of j(
t1 e rural delivery service, and any ef- (
fort to curtail it or take any of the ,
routes off "will be met with a mighty ,
protest from the people, and justly so. ,

Another refreshing thing about the \(
various appointments of the governor, j i
he does not ask "J ow he voted"?and
apparently does not care?just so tibe j.

many instances the governor is said j
not to have considered the names of a j
number of applicants at all?but to '
have gone scouting for men capable L
of holding positions where great re- |
sponsibilities are entailed. j,
arp one of those who believe that '
the people feel much, more com' ort- .
able under a quier dignified, business- j
like administration than under one'
w.'ere "you can't help yourself" and j
"none but friends need apply" was a;
motto.?Bates burg Herald.
This is all "balder dash'' and "rot ' j
if you will excuse the expression. 6t i
course Goy. Manning has appointed his !
political friends and supporters, and j
he would be very foolish if he had not. f
He even removed the regents of the
asylum to give their places to his i
friends and supporters. If not, why
did he remove ti:em? There were no
charges against O.em, and they are j

their time and their thought to tibe;
best interests of. the institution. That j
act was going one on Blease in stand- j
ing to your friends and giving them
jobs. The only difference between
Blease and Manning and the :rest ipt
tnem is Blease proclaimed from tfce!
housetop tj.at none need apply except;
his friends, and Manning and the rest j
of them go ahead and do the same j
thing and say nothing about it. And !
why shouldn't fl.ey? We are a sort!
of Jackson Democrat, and believe that1
"to t'"e victor belongs the spoils."' j
And a man could rarely be elected if
he did not stand to his iriends, because !

Of course, Mr. Manning selects
wt:om he considers the best men for ;
the places, but he always manages to i
find tfo?m among his friends, as he f
should. II: he does not, we would be j
pleased to have our friend nafne some :
appointment of his of any consequence '
t':at was not from among those who
supported him for the nomination. We j
havp not heard anv a the Blease peo- !
pie complain because Mr. Manning was
appointing I'.: is friends to the positions,
and we can see no good of bring- I
ing these matters up. Don't be un- j
easy about the people, they will take ;;
care of themselves. It has been our !:
pleasure to commend a number of 'Mr. :
Manning's appointments and we will
da so w. enr-.er we think they deserve
il. And we have no complaint as to
any of them.

You are certainly correct about
that. That is if you want to make any
potatoes. We have tried it out.
A GOOD JOB.
It was rumored in Newberry on
Thursday that Mr. Geo. D. Brown i a-i
been offered t. e position created by
the last legislature of supervisor of
mill schools in this State. It is a 300J
position and pays about $2,000 and an
allowance for expenses. T) e appointments
is made by the governor.
We miss our Kinard's mail again
this time. We beg our subscribers
out that way to bear with us. We will
get everything in good running order,
we hope, very soon, when we will make
thp mail. We resret to miss t) as mail
because it makes our paper one entire
day late. It takes some time to get
all things running just as we would
like. We hope by another week to be
entirely caught up and fc'":en we will
be in position to make all the mails.
We can see nothing so terrible ip
the fact that our representatives ia
congress made the appointments of
the officers of the federal court be ore
tT - ~ fAA
tuere was nine xor a scroiuuie iui
various positions. The recommendations
would .:ave been up to t/ em anyway,
and i they had decided who they
were going to name, why wait. It
will save a lot of prospective applicants
a lot of worry and annoyance,
and possibly some expense, which !
should not be looked upon li^rrtTy in !
V ese war times. I
If the asylum bill, in which it ap?

zarries with it the expenditure of a half |
million dollars on improvements on j
the buildings in the city o Columbia, j
and that defect should be t':e cause of ;
3elay in this expenditure, it is weli
there is a defect, and that the work !
will be held up for a year. We believe j
it was I}r 'Snyder who said that Sec-!
retary ^yan had inserted in every '
treaty a,'clause tJ at before any war \
c-ould be declared tiiere must be a year j
intervene, so t:.at time would be given j
for discussion and consideration and
to ^ive time for the angry passions
to die out. If the people have a year
to consider aud discuss this expendi- j
ture we think they will see the folly
of it. And the waste of it. lAnd thai
/ ~ / 'I
when work on improving conditions
or ti e insane does begin it will be
at State Park, an ideal place :or an
asylum, and upon the development of

quarter of a million dollars.
A CARD FROM GOV. SMITH.
In T .e Herald and News of January
19, the following comment appeared:
"Gov. Smith said he would have
closed ud the race track in Charleston
if it ihad not been closed. We understand
Gov. Blease and the attorney
general's office closed up the Charleston
race track some weeks ago though
there has been no mention made of
it in the newspapers.
"If Gov. Smith desired to do something
to make bis brief administration
notable, as a prohibitionist he
could have closed all tl e dispensaries

Gov. Smith sent the following letter
to frhe Herald and News, but it came
too late to be published. In justice
to him, we print his statement now:
Timmonsville, S. C., January, 1915.
Editor of The Herald and News:
I I ave seen a copy of your issue of
this date, and t) ank you for your
courteous and complimentary references
to mysteli. You say, however,

would have closed them, that, "if j
Gov. Smith desired to do something I
to make his brief term notable, as a I
prohibitionist, he could have closed
all the dispensaries in the State."
There is here an implied criticism of:
my utterance. Permit me to say that
from mv view point. ti'r.e cases are not
analagous. Tfce dispensaries, how-j
lever cVjecticnable, are i:: rp'-ration '
j through the will o t:ie voters of thr- |
! State and bv rc-sular le^al omu
; To close them would violate the ri? t.i |
i of the people regularly expressed. j
Rut the race track was operated in j
open, brazen defiance o a duly executed
statute of the State and coni
jtrary to the will of t e peop'e. T' ere
i would be notaing revolutionary in
forcing its suspension.
