W. F. Stevenson of Cheraw in a recent
letter says that if he had been
present at the meeting of the State
executive committee he would have
asked to have seen the evidence, and
" if it justified the charge of illegal voting
he would have asked for an investigation
as he did in 1912. We
agree with Mr. Stevenson. If a bluff
was being worked then was the time
to call it.?Columbia Record.
That is when Mr. Stevenson was ex- >
actly right, and the pity is he was'
'not present at the meeting of the com-!
mittee. The charge of fraud was made |
-toy a member of the committee, and j
. our recollection is, that he stated that!
. he Jiad the evidence present in the
committee room and would submit it

It would have allayed the suspicion,
to say the least, which, is in the;
mind of a very large number of the
.roters, that the majority was afraid
to turn on the iight of investigation.
If it was a bluff and the bluff had been
called then there would have been j
.no excuse for all the talk of fraud!
and coercion and the improper use:

clared elected, but we know a whole
. lot of good men, just as good citizens
as Mr. Manning, who do not -believe
ha was fairly and honestly elected or
nominated, and who are not going to
vote for him, and if the committee
had looked into the charges as made j
by a member of the committee it would '
have settled the matter with these;
men, but not having done so they |
have an idea that the majority of;
the committee was either afraid to I
do so, or that as it had the authority j
*nd the majority it would just ignore
tfce minority, as represented by thef
member who made the charges.
It is always best to do the right j
t&ing and to have some regard for the
rf^hts and opinions of the minority, j
The Herald and News is not going
to take tlie Western Union bulletin,
nor is it going tovtry to give the elec
tion returns tonight. We have arranged
with our Columbia representative
to give us a special every time there
is anything definite, and we will give
that to the people. The Observer announces
that it has bought the service
of the Western Union and we

ste no need for both of us to put out
the same service in duplicate in a
hmall community like this. Mr. Wilson
is going to be elected by a good
margin and the Democratic ticket in
the State will "win, though we will
get the returns from New York before
we get them from South Carolina.
If we could just get the roads dragged
after the rains what a blessing
it would be. So simple and so easy
and does so much good, the wonder
is w-e cannot make the people see it.
The Herald and News said something
about the establishment of a
creamery for this county and the importance
of it. In conversation with
Dr. G. Y. Hunter the other day he
said that the stock would be subscribed
011 the spot at Prosperity the
day Mr. W. W. Long speaks there,
for the establishment of one at that
point. It takes $4,000. We hope and
believe that Dr. Hunter is correct.
The people of that section are the
people to do it. It will mean a weeklv
nav roll at Prosperity of several
thousand dollars. We do not know
that Newberry town is interested or
cares about it. The establishment of
a creamery will lead to a farmers' exchange.
We ask our subscribers to bear "with
us. We are making every effort possible
to have papers sent promptly but
in the great many additions and
changes that are necessary it is imDossible
to get them all on at once.
iWfe are correcting the mailing lists
just as fast as we can and in the
meantime we are sending new subscribers

understand the obligation this statement
is correct only in part. The
voter took an obligation to support
the man who received a majority of
the votes, but it was not left to his
"conscience" to say who received the
majority. That would t*; a funny sort
