There is a good deal of talk about
a bolt and strange to say most of
it, and, in fact all that ^e bare se?n,
comes from tihe Manning papers, and
tihey are diong the talking for tbe oth_
er lei low who has said' notftxng. as i
for ue and The Herald and Newa we j
are in no notion of bolting and will
support the nominees.
In fact, -we neyer -were a squealer
or a bolter. We always stick and
take our medicine like a little man.
It is true, as some one has said, that
it takes & bigger man to be a man in
defeat than in "victory. iWe know
eome very tiny little small men who
hare ,'beeri elected to officoe and some
of them won again in the recent primaries.
It will always be so.
So far as we are concerned we
foave had no idea of bolting land nev-f
er have thuogh we have sometimes
been convinced that defeat came from |
unfair and "wrong means on the part
of the opposition. But we firmly believe
in the rule and dominion of a
on/1 T-ia-T)tonne w"hn rules the
J U.O L auu i i^vwv?v W. ? ~
universe and thot sooner or later the
right will prevail and justice will be;
done and the one who wins by unfair i
means will suffer more than we will,!
if our cause and our means be Just
and right, and we always try that they |
6hall be. The man who votes against
xls from prejudice or factionalism
when he knows that he is not exercising
the suffrage as a good and true
matriot and man should do, will suf
fer more than we "will, even though,
(he (gains a temporary victory and encompresses
our defeat. Victory gained
toy fraud and prejudice and double
dealing will prove a bomerang to the
man who gain? it. This is as true
as that there is a God in heaven who
rules andi directs the destiny of men.
There will be no independent ticket.
If there should he it will not
have our support.
We notice that some of the papers
are saying that Mr.^McLaurin &Houia:
resign as Warehouse commissioner |
because he deos not agree with the
administration and exercised ihis right
not to support Manning for governor,
and one paper goes so far ias to suggest
that the legislature would he wise
to request 'his resignation. And yet
these same fellows are continually
savin s that there is now no longer to
t>e factionalism and that all the people
must now get together.
We not recall that any of them
suggester that Ebbie Watson ana
Fitz MsMaster and severial others,
who did not agree with. Blease some
four years ago and w!ho exercised
their right to oppsoe his election, rerha/%o,nc?>
+>1 ov nnt Jierre** with
Oi6U I^VVM>?WV ?c- - ?
the administration. And jet these
fellows are wiping out finctionalism.
As a mater of fact McLorin was
the father of the warehouse plan and
but for his efforts there would have
not yet 'been any warehouse system.
We do not mean to intimate that he
is indispensable to its continuance, but
because he exercises his right as a
free citizen to. vote as he pleases we
do not see why he is bringing politics
into the system any more than any
other office holder who does the same
thing. If we poor numan creatures
could just see that the shield had two
sides, and while it was red on one
side it might be Avhite on the other
we would be in ia. better position to
judge one another. A good rule in
judging human conduct is to try to
put VUUISTCIL 111 11AC VClACi. iCiiun O

and see yourself go by.

A reader of intelligence and observation

If that "reader of intelligence" ot
the Index could just eat some of the
home made syrup of Dr. J. Wm. Folk,
or Jim Henderson, or of the Wilbur
'brothers, or of the Hunters, ne would
no longer want to know if it was
j "mark of patriotism." It would be
j really a delight and a joy forever. To

of whom we could name. We would
be delighted to have the editor of the
Index to come down to Newberry in
the barbecue season and take one of;
our real barbecue dinners. It would'
be worth the trip. And then not to

which our farmers are famous.

of dragging the roads.
We notice that there is talk of the
Seaboard building from Greenwood to
Augusta. We feel sure that the Sea
beard is going to build into Augusta
from some point. Some years ago
we tried very hard to get our people
; interested in getting the Seaboard to
build from iWfaitmire to Augusta via
Newberry, Saluda and> Edgefield. That
is the 'best route for the Seaboard to
take and would shorten the distance
from the main line. It is no further
from Whitmire to Augusta than it
is from Greenwood to Augusta. But
if the people who rnave property in
Newberry are satisfied we will have
to stand and tell ttem what they
should do and let the consequences
be what they may.
