In reply to the criticism of the Spartanburg
Journal that the Newberry
Herald and News and t'.:e Winnsboro
News and Herald had criticised Gov.
Manning because neither one had supported
?im for governor, the News and
Herald says that it did not vote for
him in the first primary, but 'voted for
Cooper, but did vote for him in the
second primary. We did not go into!
this personal matter because we did
not think how we voted had anythiD"
to do with the question. We try Lo
be honest in our criticisms. As a mat
ter of fact, we voted for Cooper in the
first primary and for Richards in the
second. Gov. Manning proclaimed vigorously
that he was going to be governor
of all the people and we needed
to he rid of factionalism, and, as the
News and Herald very truly says, he'
fcas out Heroded Blease in the ex
tremes to which he has gone to keep
The election o? Cooper would have
done more to do away with factionalism
t?an the election of any other
man in that race. He is broad-minded
and liberal, and yet never for one moment
varying from the path of right
and justice. In otner words, he is a
big man, and is able to rise above
these little petty matters and able to
solve questions on their merit, regardlocc*
f fo nti An olio TV-*
A to factionalism, it is just about as
- the News and Herald says: "We want!
the other fellow to practice it, and
we do as we please."
/But even Blease did not remove men
from office before their time was out
without at least giving some sort of
plausable reason for it. To quote further
from tb^News and Herald:
"And, we will never get the best
men so long as the politicians can
keep us strong along on this narrow
line. Had it not been for factional
politics we would now have another
governor. One of a broader mind, one
wtio would concede that there was j
some one in South Carolina besides!
'me and my wife, my son John andj
his wife,' and the election of Mr. Man- j
ning ifas done more to restore tee con-?
dition that caused the election of 'Mr. j
* Blease in the first instance than if,
Mr. Blease had been re-elected again.;
As we see it, the people must again'
put the concentration movement in I
action and elect some man like Mr. i
Cooper, or some otaer man unfitted!
will come forward and be successful.'
One who will go in on the prejudices;
of the people and one who will at-|
tempt to retain tf:is power by a fur-j
ther appeal to their passions. Personally
we would like to endorse
everything that Mr. Manning has .done
since becoming governor, but his every,
act has been to revive factional politics
and ^herein lies danger to tfte.
That is a true statement from one'
"Who says that he voted for Gov. Manning.
Personally we frave always been
fond of Gov. Manning, but, to be frank,
he has been a disappointment to us.
When he delivered his inaugural. it1
"was our pleasure to commend him, but j
he fcas not lived up to the protesta-i
^?r\r?+air>thprain AnH ovon "hie:
most ardent supporters have not been:
able to give him that endorsement
which they would be pleased to give, i
"If it had not been for factionalism'
Cooper would now be governor. And]
some of those who wrere so vigorous In
their efforts to elect Manning are just
a little bit sorry for it.
Tjie Heraid and News has never been'
a bitter factionalist. We supported
Blease, but we did not follow him
blindly, and did not agree with many
tfcings he said and did, and did not
hesitate to say so. The Herald and
News stands for the right as we see
it, and we are always willing to give
the other fellow the same right to his
opinion that we claim for ours, and
to respect tfcat opinion.
We admit that we do get just a little
bit nauseated about so much talk
about law and order, just as if we were.
a set of outlaws. Then to get up and
say that South Carolina could make
no very great material progress until
law and order was established is an
insult to the people of the State. And]
the whole thing is the enforcement of!
t'ce liquor laws. If we are not mis-|
taken. Gov. Manning has been on all
sides of the liquor question. He was
first a local optionist and opposed to
the State dispensary. Then he went
! in with Ben Tillman and tried to be
j elected governor as a dispensaryite,
and now it looks like he is playing to
the prohibitionists. Of course we want
to get rid of factionalism, but we will
! never do it so long as Gov. Manning
j plays the same game he has been playing
since r.:e became governor.

Georgia is a prohibition State, and
yet there are as many circulars sent

in business and sell outside the

The infrequency with which a parole;
is broken shows the beneficiary's ap-|
preciation of a chance to retrace a
false step and to rehabilitate.?Columbia
Wfe agree with you, and, therefore,
why should there be suc-n bitter condemnation
of a governor who granted
paroles to give the poor fellows a!
chance to retrace? We are one of,
those who do not believe that the'
whole object of punishment is to in-1
flict corporal punishment, but rather,
the idea is to reform. Because a man j
is bad once is no reason that !he is to!
be bad always. If the punishment has
had the result of reforming the man
punished, and the making out of him
a hpttpr man. whv not sive him a
chance, and to continue to confine him;
is only physical punishment and does
no one any good. The parole is a good
thing. It is only the cruel and hard.
hearted who desire to see punishment
simply for the sake of punishment.
