Politics ie sure enough picking up!
as the Greenwood Journal remarked
some time ago.
The National Loan and Exchange
'bank of Greenwood has loaned the
county of Greenwood $80,000 at the
low ra-te of 2.45 per cent. That possi- j
bly is the lowest rate any county nas j
^borrowed money. The poor fellow who
has to borrow in small quantities is
the one who has ;o pay the piper. It1
has always been thus.
Two repiesentatives in congress |
have announced that they will not "be !
candidates or reelection because they
do not agree with *he policy of the
president. We suspi ct the main reason

The insurance companies are withdrawing
from the State and some of
the newspapers and others seem j
alarmed. There is nothing to be
alarmed about. The agents at Anderson
give as a reason for wanting the
ffnvprnor to call an extra session o>?
the legislature and have the law rejpealed,
the fact that it has taken their
means of earning a livelihood. It is
hoped they may be able to find some
w;u5 viov. iv/ uv.
It has come to a pretty state of affairs
if a monopoly that has been fixing
its own rates and driving out
competition can dictate to a sovereign |
State. As we understand it there are
a number of good and strong companies
that were not in the trust that
are willing to carry insurance in South
Carolina. 1." the governor should call

any such manner and made to reverse

T.he Greenville News stated the i
ether dav that the revenue officers had j
raided twenty-one stills in one day and Jj
arrested three distillers. Or rather we J
believe the statement was that this
was the result of the work during thej
inon;h of February. We are surprised!
that there are so many distilleries in
Greenville at this time.
In an election on prohibition in Vermont
the other day the State went
overwhelmingly for local option,
every county save one giving a majority
for local option.
The Greenville News says, 'As soon
as possible the governor should call
the legislature together ag*in and re- !
poal the unwise and uncalled for
Southeastern Tariff insurance law."
We thought the legislature had done

We don't know much about the insurance
law. or the act driving the

therefore, we are entiely competent
to write about it, but it seems to us
if the Southeastern Tariff association
can dictate to ^outh Carolina In the
matter of insurance and arbitrarily fix
rates the sooner we know it the better.
If there is no other way to get
insurance then we better organize a
company among ourselves. But there
need be no 'I'ear. There will be good
companies a plenty to handle the in

We see it stated in some of the papers
that gasoline will probably go to
fifty cents a gallon.
The Columbia correspondent of The
News and Courier says that there is
widespread demand throughout the
State that the Sts:.e campaign be done
away with. There is no such demand
in this neck of the woods that we have
heard of. The boys like to take a look
at .hose who are aspiring tor orrice
and then it gives us a chance to take
a peep at our governor and the otlu-r
State officials who never come around
exopt when they are seeking votes.
Let the candidates ace the boys and
let the boys 'look at them and hear
what they have to say. It breaks tne
monotony or uie ciu.i summer mwnus.
We notice from the papers that the
legislature undertook to raise the salary
of the county superintendent of
education oX Greenwood county from
$900 to $1,000 and when the bill came
out and was signed by the governor
it has been found that the salary was
reduced .irom $900 to $100. In other
words reduced $800.
We notfce that several of the insurance
companies are ^oing to remain
in South Carolina and are willing to
it> business with our people.
A WORD TO CANDIDATES.
The Herald and News had thought
that the price . or cards for candidates
should be a little more than it was in
the past. In fact, most of the papers

charge $ ". and we thought that would ,
!je a reasonable charge, but when wc
mentioned it to our contemporary he
thought the candidates had a hard
| enough read to travel any way, and
that it had better remain the same,
and so we have decided to come in,
and the price will be the same as last
time, only $3.00. Entirely too chcap.
but it may be an inducement to increase
the number and we will be able
to make up in volume of business what
we lose in price. So come along and
let us have your announcement, but
bear in mind that the rule, pay as
} you run, will be strictly enforced and j
no bookkeeping made necessary. Send
your announcement and lei the money
accompany the same.

should decide to boycott South Carolir:a.
what is the matter with organizing

company writing insurance on a business

Solicitor Cooper has dispelled all
doubt about what he is going io do
and announces that he is a candidate j

people in South aCrolina who honestly
believe that if iM:r. Cooper had requested
