That is a fine piece of work that
Capt. Joe Werts has done on Caldwell
street in front of the Baptist church.!
it helps the looks of things in that
neighborhood and talso will help the
(pleasure of travel over the street.
"We welre just wondering if we could
not get the members of tHe Baptist
church interested to the extent of co-(
operating with the city in placing a
curbing and a blind ditch along the
eide of the church. on Boundary street.
' If this could be done the cost would,
not be great and the street could be'
widened and the appearance of the^
street greatly improved. A little cooperation
on the part of the property
owners along the street might induce'
the city to have this work done. The'
Baptist have a beautiful and a church-1
It building and the improvement of
the street along side the property j
helps theappearance of things very.
much. fAnd if there is a place that we j
should try to keep nice and attractive j
it is the church and the school.. We un-j
derstand that it is the purpose of May- j
or Whight to improve the sidewolks *
of all the streets leading .directly to
the several schools of the city and in j
this he is perfectly correct, and the^
came .thing appliesi with even greater
force to the improvement of the
-and xi-nltc Ipadinjr tn anii alonsr- '
side the churches of the city. We
would he glad to liave Alderman Senn
take this matter of widening and im-|
proving this section of Boundary
street up with the church and the
citizens of the neighborhood. It is
worth- while doing and would be a
service to the entire ward. And then
this street is one of the main arteries^
leading into the city. Permanent work
on the streets is what is needed and
this would be in the nature of peri
manent work. i
We would like to make a hint to
the young ladies who are going after'
. the prizes offered by The Herald and j
News, and it is this: Get a mailing]
list and go after those fello-ws who,
have been taking the paper and have
permitted themselves to get in ar-:
rears. We would rather have that:
money than money for new ones. Our
list is big enough, with the high price
of paper. There is very little money j
in the price of the paper and the av- j
erage advertiser does not want to pay
for circulation, all he wants is sDace.
Our circulation was over 2,000 before!
the contest began and already the
young ladies have added something over
two hundred. And all are not yet in
who have subscribed. Get the old
rr?\_ _ o? a i
me spartanourg journal says tnat
only 25 of the members of the last
legislature have been returned to the
next. That will give about 100 new
members though some of them have
seen service in former years. Some
of th 25 who are returned had to run'
a Sf*rnnH an/1 pvpti third TV>/?o Kofrvro
they were elected. And some of these J
are among the most able and evperienc
ed of the membership of the last
house. Cofhran of Greenville is an
able man and a fair man and a broadminded
m ;n and makes a valuable
member of the legislature. He had to
run a third race and the onlv one of
the old delegation reelected. Bovd of
? ? ' I
Spartanburg had the same experience
and he is chairman of the judiciary
committee and a good legislator of
lability. There seems to have been
pretty general unrest and dissatisfaction
with the work of the legislature
and yet it is claimed for it that it was
progressive and constructive. The
people, however, do not always elect
the men -who do things. On the contrary
they are generally the ones who
are not elected. The way to remain
in office is to do nothing except what
you have to do and' frrw* ttae^ salary
and look wire.
Our friend Greene of the Abbeville
Press and Banner is correct in bis
position on the rotation of circuit
judges. We never did think it was a
good thing for the judge nor for the!
litigant to have the judges running
all over the State, i^et eacn juage
remain in his own circuit. He toei
comes ecquainted with the litigants
and the cases and can very easily do
more "work and with greater comfort'
and less expense to himself, and we
believe tnat tne enas or justice -win
be better conserved. A good law to
pass at the next session of the legislature
would be to stop running the
circuit judges all over the State and
let each one remain in his own cir-j
cuit. Now and then ft mlgnt be well
to let them exchange if they so desire.
By remaining in their own cir-;
cuits they could get home more fre
quently and be In position to do better
We republish from the Yorkvilie
Enquirer an editorial comment on an
-* * - ' ** ? 211 - ^
editorial 01 tne lireeiivme i>cw& w
which we direct the atention of the
reader. It deals with th^ question of
.factionalism and all this talk of a bolt,'
an# former editorials from the Enquirer
and. The Herald and News copied
and commented by the News. The
Enquirer has stated the ca^e in a plain
? ' \
and sensible way, and, as it says, The
Herald and News is not a spokesman
for Gov. Blease, but was speaking for
itself alone. The Herald and (News
has made the effort to he fair and impartial
and its editor is not a factionist
and never has tseen. We have al-,
ways given every side in a disputed
or contested question a fair and lm-:'
partial hearing in these columns.
The Herald and News has supported
GVIr. Blease, but we have never been
a blind follower of him or any one
else. We have not agreed with him
on many questions, and we liave not
hesitated to say so, and to say so
througn these columns. In other
wroids The Herald and iNews is a news-!

paper first, so iar as its ue VVS VUJUUiug
are concerned. In its editorial columns
we try to give the opinions of
the editor on all questions and to givej
them in courteous and respectful lan- ]
guage and in terms that cannot be'
uisun-derstood or misconstrued.
After writing a column to explain j
what he meant and to say that he had:
no proof except circumstantial evi-1
dence that <Mr. Blease was the paid j
representative of the whiskey trust,1
the Oaffney Ledger says: "Since Mr. j
Btease's supporters are disposed to
put a different construction on w'hat
intonrfori ac a n^rfectlv harmless re
I ference to Mr. Blease and the whis'
key trust, we have 110 hesitancy in say!
ing that we regret the original paragraph,
and offer apologies to all perties
The Herald and News has not men*
tioned the matter to Mr. Blease and we
do not know that he saw the original
reference to this matter in the
Ledger. And what we said about the
Ledger's article was not a "warning"
but a simple desire to see the right
and justice prevail.

That was a terrible tragedy in
Greenwood county the other day. It
I is, as the Abbeville Press and Banner j
i says, due to two causes, the use of1
i mean blind tiger whiskey and the:
ready pistol. We heard a man say not j
so many moons ago that they had a J
chemical naw from which whiskey i
could be manufactured and it may be'
the quality of the article that brings j
out readily the meanness of the man j
who drinks it and turns him into a |
It seems from what the papers are
saying that the sale of whiskey in
Greenwood is more prevalent now than
in the days of the dispensary -when;
it was said that while the dispensary
was in existence in Abbeville that if
you wanted to buy it after sundown
you would have to go to Greenwood to
It would seem that this county woudd
be a good place for Gov. Manning to

paper that -we read the sale of liquor
was prevalent in that county and that |
more people under the influence of it;|
were seen on the streets recently than j
in many years previous.
It would seem from these facts as
stated by our contemporaries that'
there are other places than Charleston '
where there is violation of the liquor j
laws and where there is need for l^w
MR. ALFRED COLLIXS
Mr. Alfred Collins, who was con- |
nected with, various newspapers in
South Carolina at dicerent times died
recently in Lima, Ohio. He spent several
months in Greenwood in 1&02
when he issued the "Twentieth Cen- j
tury Edition" of The Index. Previous j
to that time he was in dewberry. He j
once edited an afternoon daily . in
Spartanburg and was also in Green- ;
ville. He was a newspaper worker
of ability and was faithful andt loyal;
to all tasks imposed upon him. Those
who knew him well esteemed him
highly. He was buried from the
Episcopal church of Lima. The fact
recalls that often he spoke in deepj
affection of his church and especially i
of its burial service, "one for rich or,
poor," no difference to be shown.?
Greenwood Index. j
There are some people in Newberry!
who will remember Mr. Collins. He;
was here for several months several t
years ago and assisted in the prblica- j
tion of a special edition of The Herald (
and News. We have a group picture j
of our office force at the time in which J
his picture is. We found him a very [
clever gentleman and a good news-,'
address. All teacners or tne county
are earnestly requested to be present
on the morning of the 21st instant.
