HEARST IS ENTITLED TO FAIR TREAT.
The Hearst matter being pub

papers is no indication that the
editors of those papers are it

' these editors are disposed t<
L treat Hearst as they would any
other Democrat, fairly, and no
keep his literature from the peo

nomination of some other Demo

t find the editors choice, and s(
far as we are concerned, it mat
ters not much to us who is nom
inated, anything labeled "Demo
crat" will receive the vote o:
SSouth Carolina. If Mr. Hears
is the corrupt man, some news
papers are painting him, why is
it they did not let it be knowt
-when he was a candidate foi
Congress. If we remember cor
rectly, they went into ecstacies
when William R. Hearst was
made a member of Congress, ani
some that are fighting him nov
were among the number. They
charge he is trying to buy his
nomination to the presidency
1Will they tell us whether or no

to Congress he should have beet
exposed then, and if it was al
~right for hm to buy a seat it

him to buy the Presidentia
SIn our opinion the newspaper
are making a big mistake it
charging Mr. Hearst with cor
ruption at this stage of thE
game, for it might come to past
that Hearst will be nominated
and these same papers will turi
tail the other way and bark lous
his virtues. Our choice for th<
Democratic nomination is Arthu:
Pue Gorman, but from presen
t indications he will not be nomi

we believe he will come neare:

AWAKE TO YOUR INTERESTS.
The Democratic party of Sout
Carolina is to be re-organize<
throughout the State on Satur
day, April 23rd, and for tha
purpose the county chairmai
has issued his call for the club
to assemble in this county. A
these club meetings, delegate.
will be elected to a county con
vention which meets May 2nd
and also to elect a member of the
county executive committee. W(
are peculiarly situated in thi;
State, there being only one par
ty, and that party has absolut
control of the government; ever3
officer from United States Sena
tor down to constable is a mem
ber of the Democratic party, anc
whatever issues arise must b<
determined by the Democrati<
voters. These conditions mak
it necessary for the members o
the party to take an active inter
est in its organization, hence ev
ery man should attend his clul
meeting, and aid in having hi.
club well represented in the con
vention, also on the executiv
committee. There should be
careful revision of the rolls t<
prevent double representation
and there should also be car
taken in the selection of a coun
ty chairman, a man who wil
preside over party affairs wit
impartiality, in order that ever
candidate who offers himself be
fore the people shall be giver
justice which he is entitled to. It
our opinion, no man should b<
chosen for the office of count
chairman .who will be a candi
date in the primary, nor do wi
think it fair that a candidat<
in the primary shall have
membership on the executivi
committee. If the executiv
committee is made up of candi
dates in the primery, and th<
contest is so close that the comn
mittee has to determine the elec
tion, these candidates who ari
members of the committee art
judges and jury of the cases the;
are personally interested in, anm
naturally biased in their own fa
vor. The rules of the Democrati<
party are silent upon this ver;
important matter, but the count;
convention can by resolutioi
adopt a rule which will prohibi
a candidate from being a membe:
of the executive committe; fair
ness demands such action to b<
taken by the convention.
We urge the importance of
- full attendance upon the clul
meetings, because our politica
system has become so lax tha
the meetings are not attende<
with the result, indifference has
brought about a condition tha
few outside of prospective can
didates take any interest il
the party organization. It wil
not do for the' "people to wai
until they have to face a condi
tion of corruption before the:
realize the importance of thei
political duties, they should ac
-now, and prevent if possible,emn
barrassing conditions. How of
ten do we read in the newspaper:
where a County Treasurer ha:
defaulted, take the recent case:
at Bamberg and Richland wher<
the .defalcations run into th<
thousands of dollars, not alon<
with treasurers, other officials
have also defaulted, and whei
the bond is sued upon,the count:
has a hard fight to recover, if
recovers at all. These defalca
tions if not made good by thi
bond must necesarily be mad<
good by the taxpayers, becausi
it takes money to run the govern
-ment and that money must come
out of the pockets of the peopl<
by taxation. Clarendon has beel
fortunate,the taxpayers have no
been called upon to make goo<
defalcations, but unless the peo
ple interest themselves to see t<
it that none but good men art
elected to office, there is no tell
ing what the future consequences
may be. Indifference is calculat
ed to open the political doors t<
incompetency and corruption
and whenever the people by thei:
inaction condone corruption it
our election methods, they can
-not expect to reap other tha:
they have sown. The represen
tation in the convention tw<
years ago is sufficient proof tha
there was corrupt methods em
ployed; just think of it, a con
vention of 2,500 voters, wheni
is a known fact, Clarendon ha:
not over two-thirds of the numn
ber; notwithstanding this fals<
representation, a ballot in tha
convention showed a vote in ex
cess of the falsely enrolied dele
gates. Who is responsible fo:
such a condition?~ The peopl<
who do not seek to remedy it. S<
far as that particular conventio1
is concerned, it resulted in coun
tenancinig corruption in the pri
mary which gave a vote that man'
believe was very considerabl<
in excess of the number of qual
ified white voters, and it i
known that an average of ove:
10 voters at each of the 25 club:
did not vote at all. The voti
showed 1773, and if it is a fact
and many believe it is, that full:
10 at eah box failed to vote,
council who will disappoint those
that are counting upon doing
things which will provoke opposi
tion on the part of even a minor
ity of citizens; we refer to indis
criminate franchises, and a e
discriminating set of waterworks. f
It is believed by quite a number I
that it is the intention of a few
interested persons to have coun- t
cil install a waterworks plant to E
protect the business portion of
the town and pay for same by
general taxation. In fact, we 1
heard one of the present council
say it should be done, and later
on as the town could afford it ex
tend the plant. In our opinion
council will not be able to get
such a measure through by a
unanimous vote, because there
are men in that body who real
ize the injustice of such action,
and will vote to prevent it. But t
should council adopt such an im
position, it may as well retain its
lawyer to defend its action, for
we know whereof we speak, when i
we say there are a number of
respected property owning citi
zens who will seek protection
from such an imposition in the c
courts. This is not a threat, but
a warning to council that
although under the election
laws a minority is un
able to obtain results at the
polls, if that minority -is dis
criminated against, it can pray
for relief before a tribunal which c
does not govern by the force of
numbers, but by law.
It is the duty of all good citi- I
zens to lend every encourage
ment towards making the ad
ministration of the new council
a success, this we will endeavor
to do. It shall be our purpose
to give it praise for that which
we regard to the interests of the
entire people, and whenever in i
our judgment council proposes a
measure which we regard not'
essential to the general welfare,
we shall endeavor to point out
by reasoning our objections. The
council is made up of good busi
ness men and it is hoped the
town will be governed in a wise,
