LET'S HAVE IT.
The State says. "we believe
that if put to the test we could
guess more nearly than any
other newspaper in South Caro
lina the number of pouuds that
the next governor of South Car
cHua weighs, but we are resolv
ing for the New Year not to
guess." The next governor of
South Carolina may be a sur
prise to The State, if there is
anything in the reports that has
come our way within the last
month; there is going to be a
great shaking up and surprises
will come thick and fast. At
Present it looks to us as it Mr.
Fe of Laurens has the
"coon and. gone on". but there is
the mayor of the progressive
city of Newberry whose friends
believe will make it very inter
esting for all comers. Then too,
Mr. Manning of Sumter, is look
ed upon as the logical candidate,
whose candidacy appeals to the
business men of the State, who
have come to the conclusion that
the State 2s sadly n need of a
strong business man at the head
of the government. if the liquor
question is elir-iinated from the
campaign we would rather bank
on Manning's chances than a..,
of the others mentioned, but as
long as liquor stands as an issue,
politics rather than businesswill
be mostly considered. However,
The State always with its ear to
the groundis in a better position
to guess than - we are, and it
would be of much interest if that
newspaper will express its guess
and not wait until it has hap
pened,cnd thea come out in scare
headlines and say, "we told you

PostMaster General Hitchcock
in his report says that there is a
deficit in the Post Office Depart

The Governor of Tennessee re
fuses to honor Governor Ansel's
-requisition for a C. J. Herbert,
wanted in the State for his con
nection with the great Seminole
fraud. Wonder if the governor is
in with the promoters of the Sem
inole scheme. These sharpers
had with them some prominent
men in this State, and through
having thetm in the concern many
inngcent people were victimized.
According to Comptroller
Jones' report it seems as if the
corporations are not bearing their
just proportion of taxation. The
same might be said of the large
land owner, but the small farmer
and the silaried man who owns a
little home is having it put on to
him in full measure. How this
inequality is to be remedied we
-do not know, because the legisla
ture is largely made up of a set
of men in the class of big proper
ty owners and these will step~
lightly when it comes to evening
the tax burden. One of the main'
reasons why the taxes are so high
is the vast amount of tax dodging
in values. It is a common thing!
for some property to be assessed!
at about one iifth of its value, and
other property at about all it will
bring on the market. The same
condition exists in every county!
in the State and will so continue
to exists as long as the presentl
system of boards of equalization
It now looks like 1W cents cot
ton any many who study the crop
condition- yav that cotton will
reach 18 cents before March. All
of the commercial journals pub
lished in the United States are of
the oninion that tle raw material
will be far shorter than the man
ufacturers will admit, and that
more manufactured cotton goods
have been contracted than the
crop of this year can supply. If
this is true then there is every
reason to believe that cotton will
bring even more than has been
predicted for it.
Now that "Zack -\lcGhee." cor
respondent for Columbia State
at Washington has fallen down
on his inside information in re
gard to the Cochran appointment,
let us wait and see how he comes
out in the matter of Col. Hemp
bill of the News and Courier be
ing the --referee" for the admin
istration. in South Carolina ap
pointments. If he falls down on
this as bad as he did the other.
his future pronostications will be
regarded as fulminations to make

J. J. Hemphill is about to lose
out. according to the press dis
patches, all because he paid poli
taxes in South Carolina. Has 't
ever occurred to Mr. Hemphill
that if pol' taxes were collected
from him in this State, it is an
error because he is exempt from
poll tax on account of age. We
should like to see him one of the
District Commissioners of Wash
ington, and if the payment of
poll tax debars him from appoint
ment his friends should look up
the law and see to it that he
does not lose the appointment.
because he did not take advant
age of an exemption that he was
entitled to under the law. Mr.
Hemphill no doubt owns prop
erty in this State and in paying
his taxes failed to have the poll
tax written off the books when
he reached the exemption age.
Hor. John J. Hemphiil was born
Augast 1849, which makes him
60 years of age, therefore he is
exempt from paying poll tax.
The State penitentiary is a pay
ing institution, Superintendent
Griffith thinks he will- be able
to show a profit for this year of
$80.000. If all of our State insti
tutions. schools included, had a
D. J. Griffith at their head, per
haps there would be less demands
made upon the legislature for ap
propriations. Col. Griffith has
practically rebuilt the peniten
tiary and his force of labor has
been cut down by the law which
puts ten year convicts on the
chaingangs, but notwithstanding
this, he hasdemonstrated his bus
iess ability by the magnilicent
showing. It would be a misfor
tune. to loose such a man from
this institution, and so far as we
are concerned he may remain
where he is the rest of his life.
but the State has other institu
tions that need the business abil
ity of a Griffith-all of the State
colleges need a Griffith, the hos
pital for the insane needs a Grif-1
tith, in fact every institution that
the taxpayers are called upon to
support needs a Griffitu.
