FRIDAY, APRIL 9, 1915.
Tthe State board of education at its
meeting in Columbia on Tuesday
elected Prof. S. J. Derrick, of Newberry
college, county superintendent of
education to succeed Mr. G. D. Brown,
aad at tibe same meeting elected him
a member of the county board of education
for Newberry county. He is
eminently qualified to fill both positions
with, credit to himself and the
county of Newberry.
It is stated that the State board o?
education had a itepeless deadlock on
the Newberry county superintendent:
of education, and wihen it was impos- 1
sible to decide they unanimously elect- J
Prof T>prrirV T?T-v nnt submit the- 1
matter to the people of Newberry
county and let the people decide. Sometimes
we have thought that the people
exercised very bad judgment, but
we have always bowed gracefully to
their will, and under our form of government
tfre people have a right to
say wf:o they want to fill the varioas
positions. But some one will say that
would put the office in politics. Well,
under the laws the people will have
a right to decide who they want two
years from now, and why not let tfrem
hane a chance now. Of course, tiaere
was no politics in the State board having
Gov. Manning has appointed a sa*
perintendent of the State Hospital for
the Insane from Maryland. He is to ;
take charge on the 10th of May. In
order to receive a commission from t&e
governor for any position some one
has raised tfce question that the person
must be a citizen of the State and
a qualified elector. The appointee cf
Gov. Manning is a citizen of another
State. It seems to us that we have
some sort of faint recollection of a
considerable noise being made about a
speech made by a governor of South
Carolina at a certain Richmond meeting
about the constitution and wi:.at
to do with it when it stood in tae
way of what he wanted to do. Of
course, things have changed now and
it will be entirely all right to pay no;,
attention to tee constitution when it
stands in the way of what is desired
to be done.
This question of being an elector
in order to receive a commission from
the governor for a position came up
some years ago on the apointment of a
stenographer of oI\. of the circuits
of this State. The judge, Vho desired
to make tibe appointment, and tihe t).:en
Gov. Hey ward, took the position that
the apointmeht could not be made bocause
the party was not an elector,
being under twenty years of age, j
. though entirely competent otherwise ^
to fill the position.
It does seem to us that there mig^t!
be found in South Carolina some physician
who is competent to fill this position
and who uias the patriotism to
take it. Of course, it should he removed
from politics and we suppose it N'
will now be removed.
In the interest of the taxpayers of
(tie State, we hope something will in- ,
terrene to prevent tfte expenditure of
a half million dollars on the present
buildings in Columbia, as recommended
by Dr. Herring, Gov.# Manning's expert.
The State has already spent a
quarter million at State Park, and ii
any money is to be spent it should be j
on that development, so that the in-1
stitution might be speedily removed j
to the country.
We notice that tt'.:e State Press association
'has decided to invite Gov.
Manning to make an address at the
annual meeting at Chick Springs. The
committee should not overlook an invitation
to the lieutenant governor, iMr.
Andrew Jackson Bethea. He is in tae
speaking game now also. He and tue
governor are botli on the program fcr
tfce Sunday school convention to be
fceld in Newberry the latter part of
this month. And they should both be
on the program for the Press association.
We do not believe Governor Manning
minds the poking of The Herald and
News, of Newberry, and the Yorkville i
Enquirer are constantly giving him. II .
he did not have some newspaper bark- :
ing at him life would be entirely too !
sweet and comfortable.?Sumter Herald.
IV.e foregoing is clipped from the 1
Pee Dee Advocate, under ti.e heading i
"Blease Papers Are After Him." We j
had failed to notice it in the Sumter!
Herald, and we were just a little sur- ]
prised that the Pee Dee Advocate, fur i
which we had some little respect,
should print such a tilling, without ]
pointing out its absurdity, instead of j
putting itself on a level with the Sum- ;
ter Herald. If any of the readers of j \
the Enquirer ha\e detected any effort I j
to "poke"' Governor Manning, it would I ]
be interesting to have them at least j
point out the dates of toe issue of the j
paper in which the "pokings" appeared. <
However, about the best and surest i;
way we can think of by whidi these ]
contemporaries fan relieve themselves <
of grave suspicion of uncalled for men- <
dacity, is to get Governor Manning i \
himself to put ti:e stamp of approval | ]
on the Herald's paragraph, and a com -! ;
prehensive reason therefor.?York\ille
Th$ Herald and News agrees entire- j
ly witij the Enquirer. We have had no '<
"pokes" at Gov. Manning. To be sure, .J
as we have before remarked, we l-ave
not agreed with Gov. Manning in all c
that he has done, and we have not refrninP/1
frnm s/iviiiir cn 'hut tva
always done it in a dignified and re- j
spectful manner. As we said once ?2- :
fore, it would be well sometimes to <
have a man delivered from his friends. *
We would like to see a comprehensive ,
reason for some of tfa.e tilings said by i
the Sumter Herald, but that would be <
Mr. R. S. Gallov/ay, in his observa-1
tions on his visit to Xewberrv recentlv. I
V ? / I
observes that Due West colleges have ^
some fifteen teachers in the schools <
of Newberry, and also tl:e county su- 1
perintendcnt of education. And New- '<
berry college rigtit here in our midst i !
with not near that many. Well, these J
young ladies from Due West are good ^
teachers and possibly also it is the il- ?
lustration of the truth of the old say- <
ing that a propliet is not without (honor 2
save in-his own country.
We notice,that one of the papers j
states that ;Prof. Derrick was elecccd I
superintendent of education of New *
berry county to succeed "G. D. Brown, ^
deceased." Now that is- too bad and
that news gatherer should be ashamed ! j
of himself. /Air. Brown is not deceased, t
but is promoted to a much better job. t
CLEAN-I P WEK. c
The citv ronnnil and t'ho r"ivir? a<ssr?
ciation Lave designated next week as
clean-up week for the city, &nd the
council has stated on what days the
cart would call in the 'various wards.
This is a very important matter and
should not be necessary for the council
or any one else to call attention
to it. There should be enough civic
pride in every citizen to cause birn to
keep &is premises clean, and if there
is not a purely selfish spirit should
:>ause each individual to keep his prem- j
ises clean on account of the value of ?
such action as a health preserver. Wt *
could have a clean city by a little co- i
operation on the part of all tie citi- ?
zens of the community. t
S> THE 1DLEK. <3> ?
No doubt every one has seen that t
doggerel that was going the sounds of 2
tee press some time ago about toe man 11
who had a few nails and an old tin j t
~ T x 11 A. % '
tau itiiu nt; put iiicm cogemer ana ,
called it a Ford, and the thing j
ran, or words to that effect. I neuer
could quote poetry or anything else. 1
But it ran something like that. Weil
"Talking It Over," in tl.e 'Augusta 1
iCUronicle had a pretty good thing on i
the Ford, which I feel sure will be ! 1
appreciated by at least some of our j
people, and I tr.ink it is pretty clever '
and I am going to quote it for their
'The meanest jab at Ford automo- 1
biles, discarded 'for months, is on dit
again?for they won't quit jibing at !
the Ford cars.
A party of negroes were "scooting I
craps." One of the gang, who "hau
"set"' the player handling the dice, ordered:
"Nigger, Ford dem dice!''
"What you mean, man, by 'Ford'
"Ford 'em! Ford 'em, I say!"
"What's dr.t, Ford 'em?''
"Shake, rattle and roll!''
Somehow, it does not seem to me .
that this is sucfa a terrible jab. There
is one thing they tell me about these
Fords, and that is ycu can generally!
?,o where you start and you can com*"1 1
back. That is the main purpose 1 j
would have a car for it' 1 had one, to :
go and come, and after all t' .at is '
better t; an so much weight and j
many fanc-v things on the side.
That reminds me of something 1
have been wanting to say for a long J
Lime, but somehow I just could not)
work it in to suit me. It is this: 1 !
notice at several of the street cross- j
ings a sign whicti reads something
like this: "Speed limit 'four mile.5 j
3 e hour." Now, I was just wondering
if that was a joke, or if council reaPy
neant what it said when the sign was
promulgated, mere is noi one car iu
forty tirat pays any attention worth
3peaking about to the sign. It may
:ave been put up as a street ornament
ike some of these old-fashion country
style signs of the merchants which
stretch their arms?or their beauty?
;o the breeze across the streets. No
iiodern or live and progressive and
ip-to-date city has any sucfa signs j
inmc.c tlio Rut tn Vita hark !
:o the subject, provided I had one, and
;t is ti. is: If the city is going to have
i rule to slow down at crossings ic
should be enforced or the signs should
3e taken down as cumbering the a;r,
ind certainly foey are not beauty
The city has been moderately free
:rom automobile accidents and that
may lull us into an innocuous deussue^ude,
or something like that, whatever
it is. But some of these days wcire
going to !_ave a terrible accident
md then the public conscience will be
aroused, and let m? tell you, it wou;d
be a little better to take a small dose
3f prevention than a whole barrel of
:ure. I am not knocking or kicking
Jut just stating a plain and unvarnished
And this reminds me that I happened
:o see an almost near collision on one
3f these narrow streets some time ago
between a wagon and an automobile?
i real automobile as they say?but ii
so happened tLat both were going
*ather slow and the tongue of the wag)n
just missed by a few inches going
through the bowels of the youthful
luto chauefler. Well, that reminds me
>f another thing I heard seme time
i2Yv nnH thnt is that t.hp cit.v rnimril (
vas thinking about passing some sort
)f vehicle ordinance which would reluire
all vehicles to keep to the ri^ht.
f in this particular case that rule
ad been adhered to there would nor
lave been any danger. But one of tne
ehicles was on the right side of the
:treet and the ot!.:er was on the leit,
md going in opposite directions. What
s needed is a regulation in this ciry
hat will require all vehicles to keep
o the right and not to stop their veticles
except when on the right side
if tt'.:e street in the direction they are
leaded. Yes, I know some one will be
eady to say ti at our streets are too
larrow for any such regulation, but
o my mind?that is, taking it for
granted that I have any mind, which
nay be a rank presumption?but any
vay, it seems to me there is notniug
n such objection, but that fact onl;
nakes it tie more imperative for some
iuch regulation. 'And tl:en the ordinance
which forbids the parking or
he standing of vehicles and automo)i!es
on certain streets and squares
should be more rigidly enforced. Any
>ne who has observed at all will know
hat many times on crowded Saturlays
particularly, wtten our friends
rem the country are I:ere, the auto
Measure drivers take great pleasure
n driving around through the narrow
>teets and stopping their cars in
hem. Well, I reckon it is none ot
ny business, and what I nave here
vritten is simply for the general welare
and of no sort of personal inter *
?st to me. And to sibow you that 1
:ave tried to be careful of what I
say I have just been reading a beauiful
little sentiment on that subject,
