__==='
We notice now and then that the
papers state that towns like Greenville
pass an ordinance occasionally.
Wonder if 'Newberry has a license
ordinance. And if the ordinance to
require automobiles to stop at certain
street crossings provides that
the car shall stop after crossing or if
it shall stop on the street that it is
crossing. We have observed that;
very frequently the stop is made right j
I
in the center of the street that the
car is crossing. Well, we suppose1
that council takes it for granted that j

enough sense not to stop on the center
of the street he is crossing, because
if he did and there was a car
coming down the street he was crosthpn
?rivft 1iim a cen-1
OlUg 1 l> ?? UU*VA O
ter drive. In this day we have to tell
people just what to do and just how
to do it by some sort of law or statute.
It seems now that the road from
Spartanburg to Clinton is going to be
built. Newberry was invited to sor,d
a representative to me preummai/
meeting in the interest of the building
of this road which was held at j
Cross Anchor a short time ago. The I
editor of The Herald and News asked
"-v
Mayor Wright to have some one look
after Newberry at this meeting and
gave him several papers containing
information about the project. The
plan was to build from Spartanburg
to Cross Anchor and via Whitmire
on to Newberry. Newberry was not.
represented and we suppose the promoters
concluded that we were indifferent
and they would not bother
with us. Well, we are satisfied and
contented with our noble selves ana
of course there is no prospect of further
growth so long as that state of
mind exists. A few years ago, at
least within the memory of some now
living in Newberry, the Seaboard
wanted to come this way, but we sat
down and virtually said that the road
is not going to be built and we don't
waiut you any way. It went around
us and is one of the great systems
of the 'South. If you are satisfied
with yourself and your town then j
there is no chance for further growth j
or development so long as that state .
of'mind exists.

We dreamed last night, tiiat in some
"way Joe Sparks was prevented from
attending the press meeting at York,
and as a result there was a barrel and
a half of beer left over when the
meeting adjourned. ? Spartanburg
Journal.
How* in the world does a prohibi- j
tionist like Booker know there is going
to be a barrel and a half of beer j
at the press convention. We trust he!

he is it should all be left.
AS TO CANDIDATES
In the last issue we stated that we
had an accident and that all the can|
riida+ps narris had hepn lcnnfked into
pi. And that we used the list from
the Observer which that paper kindly
let us have. We also stated that we
had printed those that were not in
the Observe in another column. This
latter we did not do, and for fear
some may think those have dropped
out we mention their names in this
connection. W. B. Boinest for the
legislature; Eugene S. Werts for auditor;
G. G. Sale for master; S. J. D.
Price for magistrate Xo. 2; R. W.
Glymph magistrate No. 3; John W.
Scott for magistrate No. 4; J. J. Murran
for magistrate iNo. 7; P. B. El
lison and J. A. Kinard for magistrate
No. 10; Andrew G. "Wicker for magistrate
Xo. 11; Neal <W. Workman for
the State senate.
We hope to get them all in this issue,
but if we should fail to get them
up for the paper in time, will have
them in the next issue.
Those candidates who desire tn
tafce advantage of oar proposition to j
get out a candidates' issue should let j
;;> hc~ fr-'in them right away. it
v.ill take some time ;o get ii}? such a
i.aper and ha.e the cuts made but it
would give each candidate an opportunity
to get himself before the public.
Let us hear from you at once.

We do uot know what "B. V. D.'s i
| Jerry Gardner" is, but, by gum we!
> had five bales of cotton, and how we i
s i
got 'em, why we growed 'em.
We note where Elbert wants the
i limit kept to a dime. In this day of
! advanced prices we suspect it would
i be better to keep it down to a jitney,
[ else the sharks might "make a killing."?Gaffney

Come to think of it, Ed, we guess
\
j you are right. But we hope there
will be no sharks at the meeting.

THE CAMPAIGN OF EDUCATION
State Chairman John Gary Evans
i characterizes Warehouse Commis-1
I * I
1 sioner McLaurin as "a discredited j
politician seeking to carry" the :State j
warehouse system "into politics for j
personal reasons," and Warehouse
Commissioner McLaurin recalls that
Chairman Evans has frequently been
defeated for office and that once Mr.
McLaurin referred to him as "the
squeak of a squeedunk, trying to imitate
the blast of a trumpet.''
The campaign of education leading
up to the selection of officers for our
| Grand Old 'State is thus auspiciously
opened.?Charleston Post.

chairman had set the pace. The

If some one would just drag the j
i road between Newberry and Columbia j
j after the next rain it would be fine. J
j The first six miles out from Columbia
I is about the roughest portion of the
l
i road. Of course, that section from
I .
j Chapin to Little (Mountain should be
I relocated. We are told there is a. roa(l
! that leaves Chapin out which is much
! better and no further. It strikes the
: old Buncombe road somewhere this
' side of Peak, and comes back into the
! Columbia road at Spring Hill. The
| section through the corporate limits
' of Little Mountain is bad, and some j
I
of the small bridges are almost im- j
passable. Somebody please get busy

face with the truth of the statement
contained in the epitaph which he
quotes: "Everything about the house
seems so different since she has
gone.*'
The Columbia correspondent of the j
News and Courier states that Mr. W. j
A. Stuckey of Bishopville may be a
candidate for governor, and thatj
statement is made in connection witli
a statement that there was a confer-;
ence of the friends of the Stale
j
warehouse system, leaving the im-!
pression that it was decided at this j
conference to have Mr. Stuckey run j
as the champion of the State warehouse.
In fact, it is stated that "it is
. _ _ . I
I thought the candidacy of Mr. Stuckey
was discussed" at the meeting. We
have the information that it was not
even mentioned.
Mr. 'Stuckey is a nice young man
and a large farmer, but he has no
chance in the world of being elected
governor this year. If he should enter
the race he will simply waste his
time and money it costs him to make
the race. We -believe that Mr. Stuckey
is a man of too much good common
sense to enter the race at this time.
Gov. Manning has been making a
whirlwind campaign in Spartanburg
county.
Cole. L. Blease has filed his pledge
as a candidate for governor and paid

tlie que;Ion ;t- to whether i.r :;ot ha j
I
lo niUKe tlie race. \
.Mr. A. H. I>agnall has tiled his
pledge as a candidate for congress
in the third district.
We publish today the correspond- j
ence between State Chairman John j
Gary Evans and Senator McLaurin. i
In fact, the correspondence grew out j
of a letter from Mr. J. A. Banks as i
president of the State warehouse association
to the State chairman asking
if the committee would permit the
warehouse commissioner to have a
place on the program with the other
candidates, and the reply qf Mr.
Evans is answered by Mr. McLaurin.
Tt ocmmc trv 11a that \fr Pi'flnc ic f>nr.
rect in not allowing the commissioner
to be a candidate in the :State pri-'
marv after the action of the State j
convention, but he also went out of J
his way to make a personal fling at j
Yr. McLaurin which was altogether]
oi^t of place and not germane to the 1
subject of the letter of inquiry.
Mr. McLaurin's answer should be |
a plenty for the State chairman. The 1
J
remarks of <Mr. Graydon and Mr. .
tt?j ? ,c? + i
ncnuyrbun 111 uic 'ciaic uisu vcuuvu j
were altogether out of place and |
should not have been made much less i
quoted by Mr. Evans. Mr. Mc,Laur- j
in's answer is all right, but we are i
inclined to think that it would have,
been more complete if he had left off
the reference to our lieutenant gov- !
ernor. It was not germane to the ;
subject matter of the correspondence ,
If we are not mistaken it seems trv
us that what Mr. Evans refers to as
Mr. .McLaurin's commercial Democracy
is now the chief corner stone
of the Democratic platform. IMr. Mc|
Laurin was just some twenty years
or more ahead of his party. We can
recall that when the Ocala platform j
<
was promulgated a great many of the |
Democrats referred to those who en-1
_ , , , I
j tforsed it as h'opunsts. i ne leuerai
reserve banking system and the ware-j
| house system and the rural credits j
| bill are but carrying out the princi- j
| pies underlying the Ocala platform.'
j Of course, we have no doubt they j
j are in more perfect shape, but the j
j principle is the same. The burden of
the argument of the advocates of the j
Ocala platform was that the govern- j
ment should lend money direct to the j
farmer on his cotton and his land.
But we can see. no good in digging '
up the past in these matters. Condi- j
tions have changed and men change |
with them. If Mr. McLaurin has the
proof against Mr. Evans as to what
he says of him then he should not
be head of the party in this State.
