THE STATE WAS LOOTED BY NATtVES.
The readers of T1 E TI , s w;il
recall the question asked by us
who are the stockholders of the
"Carolina Glass tounpany the
answer has never loen forth
coming from The State. other
than to say in effect that the
gentlemen in contro' of this in
stitution were mien of the hi
est character. wholi none wii!
dare assail except in a covert
and cowardly manner. The
intimation was that the gliass
company were Columbians and
were above doing those things
the commission charged. to wit:
cheating and defrauding the
State of South Carolina. We
contended all along that if the
claim of the dispensary commis
sion was true the Carolina Glass
Company is no better than the
whiskey concerns of the North
and West which robbed the ta x
payers of thousands of dollars,
and because we made the in
quiry of The State. and also in.
quired whether or not there was
truth in the common report that
some interested in The State. or
men close to the management of
that newspaper were interested
in the glass company, we
brought upon ourself the abuse
of Columbia's morning journal.
and denounced in unmeasured
terms. The editor of The State
knew full well that we made no
charge but was asking for in
formation because it was com
monly reported that persons con
nected with The State were in
terested with the local concern
charged with having robbed the
State of South Carolina. but
as soon as the editor of The
State denied for himselt and
all persons interested in his
paper haring any connection
with the glass company. we ac
cepted the denial in good faith
and also accepted in good faith
the high recommendation he
gave to the characters of the
men in control of that company.
but the State of South Carolina
through its highest court did
not accept The State s estimate
of the characters of these Coi
umbia gentlemen, and in judicial
decree placed on record a contfir
mation of the chars e of fraud
and conspiracy against the very
men The State lauded.
The supreme court says the
State of South Carolina has
been overcharged by the m-n;
owing to the taxpayers e,000
Attorney General Lyon has
scored another great -victory,
this time it was against the
home looters, not against foreign
concerns. The dispensary comn
mission has been sustained in
nearly all of its contentions, and
to the attorney general is due
It would not be out of place for
The State at this time to come out
and acknowledge its err or, and
to admit that all of the virtue is
not centered in Columbia. El
would also be the proper thing!
for The State to realize it is not
infallible in its judgment, and
that others bare views and opin
ions which are entitled to be
BE GOVERNED THEREBY.
The article by County Super
intendent Browne relating to;
the schools which appeared in
last week's issue should have
the careful consideration ot every
person initerested in the future
-welfare of the children. He has
stated facts, and it is the duty
of every parent to see to it the
conditions he complains of are
remedied. We agree with him
most heartily in his effort to
have the school libraries man

and~to have the school build ings.

wili love to go to schoot. He is.
also right in what lie says about

As advertised, a buggy wheel
was arranged having on its rim
about 75 ears of corn. to each of
which a ticket calling for a prize
was attached. and each boy of
f the clubs present was given a
a chance at one of these prizes.
-tThese ranged in value from 251
f cents cash to a ten dollar set
of harness which was given by
F. C. Thomas.
s The list of contributors to these
prizes are so many that it is not
convenient to print them in this
connection. The last and tinal
t amounts being collected from
! those present at the corn exhibit,
and most of whom freely and
- cheerfully gave from 25 cents to
i one dollar each. The wheel prizes
- aggregated about tifty dollars.
. Owing to confusion one or two
got no prizes. This was very
> much regretted.
f A feature of the day consisted
of addresses by Messrs. Williams
and Smith along the lines of this
werk. All in all, it was a day well
spent, and what has been accom
plished together with what it is
hoped will beaccomplished.shows
that the effort merits the co
