THE EXPLANATION CLEANS THNGS UP.
The letter of Captain W. E.
Gonzales replying to Senator
Tillman's criticism of the invita
tion to the Taft luncheon makes
out a good case going to show
that the function given to the
president was in reality a State
affair, and we are sure that had
it been so understood at the time
several who declined the invita
tion would have accepted. The
impression made on the minds
of many was that the Columbia
Chamber of Commerce was be
bind the scheme to entertain the
president, and therefore that
organization could not give a
function in the name of the State.
it being pur.ly a local institu
tion. Having Governor Ansel to I
act with the Mayor of Columbia, 1
and the president of the Cham-'H
ber of Commerce, and. of the 4
State Bar Association does not
necssarily authorize a State:
function, and our understanrd
ingof the matter was, that Colum
bia was toentertain the president,
and when those who assumed
charge discovered 'that it was
a huge undertaking, and the f
fnances would be hard to col
lect, then it was that they con
ceived the idea of raising the
money-from those invited. But
Captain Gonzales' letter, xhile
in some respects does not show
by what authority a few men'I
could get together and gitn- anIa
entertainment in the name of the
State, yet, according to his'ver
sion things do not look so bad;
and could have been.explsined in
private letters, and avoided a
whole lot of unpleasant misun
As one who declined the Co-Jr

SENATOR, YOU ARE WRONG.
The argument used by Senator
Tillman against compulsory edu
eation may take with the unin
formea masses but it is awfully
weak comimr as it does from one
who poses before the country as
a statesman. There are plenty
of school trustees of the! rura!
Kchools who can mke Tillnan's
argument look ridiculous, and
they do not pose as statesman
either, they really see and read
the future, and they want to help
build up the masses so they may
be competent to prevent being
politically buncoe-. as their fath
ers before them were. The-reas
oning that Tillman gives against
compulsory education. is one of
the best arguments in its favor.
He claims that if we compel the
children to go to school, it will
force the negro children into the
schools, as well as the whites.
Now we should like to ask the
Sdnatorif the negro children need
forcing? Do not every one of
them go to school, while thous
ands of white children do not.
What is to become of the white
children if they do not take ad
vantage of the school facilities?
Will they not be at a fearful dis
ad". ntage when the negroes are
educated and the whi noi? If the
white people would see 'o it that
all of their children secure a fair
education there would be no need
to force attendance in the public
schools but as long as parents are

LET LAW. NOT PREJUDICE RULE.
An editorial in the Columbia
state last Friday referring to the
.raft cases has the sound of try
ng to wake the county newspa
>ers up to a scheme to build a
entiment that will force a con
iction at Chester. We do not
hink it is the duty of a newspa-,
er to persecute men charged
rith offences against the State,;
nd if the newspapers are going:
o try the accused there is no use'
or a jury. There is no disposi
ion on the part of any of the
ewspapers to defend the graft
ers, as The State seems to im
gine, but while this is so,we doa

The parties charged with briS
ry and conspiracy in the dis
ensary affairs, are to face a jury
at Chester,and itdepends entirely
on what evidence is brought out
whether the charge is made suf
ficient to convict. If the evidence
is sufficient they should be con
victed, but this evidence is for a
jury to construe, and not for the
press. Therefore, we would like
to see the accused giyen a fair
trial which they may not get if
the newspapers are to manufac
