Tiie attention of the Democratic j
voter is called to the fact that under I
the new rules and laws of the Democratic
primary it is necessary to have
a new enrolment every year. The
names of the secretaries and the!
places where the books are has been
published twice in The Herald and
News. Some of the clubs have enrolled
pretty well while some have not
enrolled. Two ciuds announce mis
issue that they will have the books
at the club precincts for the purpose
The last day for enrolling is July 25.
"We simply desire to call attention to
r the regulations and urge each voter
to see to it that his name is on the [
club roll. And you must put it there
yourself. You can not authorize some
one else to sign the roll for you.
CITY PURCHASES SEW
FIRE ALARM SYSTEM
ICity council at a meting on Monday
bought a new fire alarm system
"which contemplates putting in in different
parts of the city fire alarm
boxes or stations.
They bought an electrical bell
which for the present will be attached
to the town clock bell and
also a transmitter which is so arranged
that box signals may be attached
in the future. For the present
the alarm will have to be telephoned
to the engine house and the signal
for the bell sent from there. It is
the right thing to do. In the future
a regular fire alarm bell may be at- |

the Manning asylum policy was a
failure, reading from a report of the j

moved on account of the crowded
condition. Dr. George B. Cromer was
a member of that commission. Mr.
Blease attacked the administration of
tMr. Manning as lawless and extravagant,
and romped on the pardoning
record of the governor. He was pre
sented with two "baskets of flowers
and several baskets of peaches.
Robert A. Cooper said he was no
stranger to the people of Newberry.
Mr. Cooper stressed law enforcement,
saying no State can be a great State, j
and no people a great people that are i
not a law abiding people. He said if
elected governor he would not interfere
with the verdict of the jury unless
he is convinced a mistake has
been made. j

Is in Favor of Lc
"I am strongly in favor of Labor
Unions. It is the God given right of |
every man, and his right as a citizen
of this great country, to organize and
unite with his fellow man for the purpose
of improving his conditions in
general. Xo man will dispute this
as a general proposition. It is as
natural for men to organize for the
general uplift of all and for the bettering
of conditions and surroundings i
as it is for water to run down hill.
"Let's look around, at our very
doors, and see what we find along this
line. The cotton mills, doctors, dentists,
lawyers, merchants, bankers,
and hundreds of other trades and
professions have their organizations.
Then why is it wrong for the mill op- J

our citizens, "who shall not organize"
for the betterment of his conditions?
It seems to me to be very short sighted

to pursue the policy some have
the past months. Would it not be
better for them to say to their help,'
"Y o ahead and organize, try and '

grievance or complaint to make, we
will meet you half way. We will.
talk the matter over, hear your side'
of the case, then present ours and ^
as reasonable men we can get to- j
sether and adjust the matter." This
seems to me to be the right course to ;
pursue and when anything is founded ,
upon right you stand upon very high J
ground. It is a shameful state of af- .
fairs when white men, living in a :
free country. "The land of the free
and home of the brave," are actually (
afraid to mention a word, above a
whisper, in favor of labor unions for
fear of being immediately turned off
and thrown out of employment. I do
not vouch for the truthfulness of the

a few years ago. They soon discovered

the only rational course for them to

work for a living when you treat
them like human beings. The
majority of tlie help in many of
the mills in this section when shown
that conditions did not warranty any
advance in wages would accept the

Among Home People.
(Former Governor Cole. L. Blease
was among his home people today
and he was greeted with cheers when
he arose to speak. He at once "lit
into'' the administration of Governor
Manning, describing it as the most
lawless ana extravagant in the history
of the State. Taking issue wiUj
the governor on the asylum matter,
Mr. Blease said Mr. Manning had referred
to his appointment of Dr.
George B. Cromer on the charities
board and he read from a report of
the asylum commission under Governor
Ansel, recommending the purchase
of land to remove the plant on
account of its crowded condition, Dr. J
Cromer having been a member of that
commission, which report, the speak- j
er said, condemned the asylum policy
of Governor Manning. The former
I governor claimed that his campaign

created under the present administration,
saying that it was. good for
Dr. Cromer to have been appointed
to the office, that could not be
elected to one, assailed the tax commission
and its chairman, A. W.
j .Jones, charging that he paid nothing
but a poll tax, -'and eighty-five cents
of that ought to be returned," and
read a letter from the auditor of
Clarendon county, in reference to the
return which Governor Manning
made of his property in that county, j
charging that it was worth many j
times more man tne price at wmcn i
it. was returned for taxation. Mr. j
Blease was presented with several;
baskets and bouquets of flowers and j
baskets of peaches.

and soon held their close attention.
