Wo urnnlH ho trv Spa that Stale i
highway commission established, pro-'
vided it were created as a substitulo
for some of the unnecessary commissions
already in existence.?Yorlcville
That's about the way we feel about
it, and vet the establishment of a
good thing, and something that would
be worth while, should not be made
dependent upon tearing something else
down. That we should have somej
systematic system of road building;
we do not think any one will for a j
^moment question. 'We believe it would j
save many times its cost to have some j
intelligent and competent expert to i
lay out the road work for the State.!
Some one who knows how. That is;
the great need today. It would save
much more than its cost and besides
'be a stimulus to road work.
Here's a bet if you want it: That
the Hon. Josephus Daniels will be the
last man in the Wilson cabinet to resign?if
at>all. "VVe feel that we risk
nothing in saying that Brother JoSephus
may be depended upon to stick
to the shiv 'o state "till the last ga-(
^ loot's asbore."?Augusta Chronicle.
Well, why shouldn't he stick to the
ship and be faithful to the president
and the party? Such faithfulness
should be commended. .
What a great opportunity to drag
the roads. They are in condition now
after the recent rains to make dragging
and scraping pleasant and profitable.
Get busy and let us have at
least two hundred miles of road in
the county dragged in the next five
days. It would be easy and cos| very
little and be worth a whole lot to the
roads atod to the people.
We are inclined to the opinion that
same sort of conciliatory board would
be a good thing. We publish today
Gov. Manning's special message on
the subject. It would be worth a
whole lot in the settlement of disputes '
between employer and employe. It |
would be worth money to both. And
generally t'nese differences can be adJusted
to the satisfaction of all parties
concerned if the right people with j
some authority to act can take hold ,
of the situation in time. But, as Gov.!
Manning says, if either party to the j
difference makes a suggestion to arbitrate
it is too frequently taken as an
admission of being in the wrong. The
Tight sort of a board could do this
and save a whole lot of loss to both ,
employer and employe. j
The senate has passed t'ne new circuit
bill almost unanimously. The
opposition, if there was any, was so
little that you could not recognize it.
That will give us 14 circuit judges It
-will be up to the governor now to say
whether ne will approve the bill.
"\ TAX, BERTS CASE
Governor, at Pardon Board's Suggestion,
is Having Prisoner's
Mental State Probed.
Gov. Manning yesterday granted a
reprieve for 60 days to 4-lbert C. Talbert
of Greenwood, who was convict
. ed at the spring term 1915 court ot
general sessions, Greenwood county,
on the charge of murder and sentenced
by Judge Thomas F. McDow to
be electrocuted on April 2. This sentence
was stayed on appeal and the
appeal was later abandoned and Talbert
was resentenced to be electrocuted
o;i December 10. The governor
has received a large number of strong
petitions urging him to commute t'ne
sentence of this prisoner to life imprisonment,
because of the prisoner's
low mentality and imbecility. It is
urged that this man's mind is weak
and that he was not responsible for
his action. The governor, upon recr\f

Mrs. Young had been in failing
health for some months and had
spent several weeks at the Pryor hospital
in Chester. All that a loving
husband, devoted children and skillful
physicians cor-ld do, was done to
lestore her to health but of no avail.
So on the beautiful afternoon of
February 6, 1916, in her own home,
surrouned by her husband, her eight j
grown children, her sons-in-law and
many loving friends and relatives the
spirit crossed tne Dar ana we realize
that "she can never come back, to
us, but we may go to her."
Mrs. Young was among the most
honored and best loved women of our
town. As they traveled the pathway
and Mr. Young had been maried 40
years. As they traveled the pathway
of life, they helped each other and by
dint of perseverance strict economy,
and devotion to duty they have amassed
