Cut Out the Sham and Fraud.
It would be interesting to knov
just how many students havE
obtained free tuition at Clemson,
Winthroh,and the South Caroline
college whose parents have beer
amply able to pay all their ex
penses. We would like to know
how many State officers, includ~
ing governors, United States
senators and congressmen, have
ad their children educated at
ne or the other of these colleges
t public expense. We mnvite in
formation on this subject.
We wish to reiterate what we
said yesterday, as to the regula
ions governing free tuition.
lhese are farcical in their im
otence and all of the colleges
iving free tuition "to those un
ble to pay" are more or less
ictimized. Moreover, the re
uest to any public officer to give
is private opinion as to wheth
r or not any man is telling the
.ruth in some transaction in
;hich that public officer has no
:oncern is an imposition on and
mn injustice to that officer. He
uust either incur enmity by a
efusal to endorse any applica
~ion, as is his right, or make
memies by endorsing some while
-~efusing to endorse others, or
riolate his conscience by endors
ng all, among them some known
o be unworthy. The practical
esult of the system is that many
>rsons, very many persons,
nake false statements and most
f the county officers certify their
elief in the truth of those state
ents. There is a general be
ief that rules touching free tui
ion are made to be broken. And
hey are broken. How much bet
er it would be to av'id encour
~ging that false swearing. But
he South Carolina legislatures
eem really disposed to make it
nancially profitable to citizens
o disregard their oaths. Behold
he method of tax returus! A
an is made to swear that he is
eturning is property at its full
alue and the legislature fixes
0 per cent. as the basis. So the
itizen often makes a "mistake"
f 60 per cent. in his calculations
aking 40 per cent. the standard

ets more of its kind. Why not
