NOT HIS CHAMPION
One of The Times readers com
plained to us the other day for
not striking back at some of the
newspapers which arc trying to
arouse a sentiment of opposition
to the present governor. He
seems to think they are treating
him unjustly, and that the week
ly newspapers which represent
the sentiment of the country,
should take a hand in the fight
to let the aspirants know the
daily newspapers are not in touch
with the masses, and cannot
speak for the voters generally.
The Times is not championing
the cause of the governor, or any
other man who aspires to the of
fice of governor; the fact is: it is
too soon to ascertain what the
wishes of the masses are; there
is no man living, who can possib
ly know whether the present gov
ernor can be reelected, nor can
any one -tell whether Governor
Blease has lost or made friends,
but even did we feel that we
knew, it would not give us the
right to say the daily ne wspapers
should not try to work up a sen
timent of opposition, it is their
right to favor or oppose, as it is
the right of every man to run for
the office. But we will say'this,
if the newspapers which have
been, in and out of season con
demning Blease, are the ones to
represent the opposition to him,
he will be tbankful for the ene
mies' he has made, for it was
largely through their unfair, bit
ter, and senseless fight upon him,
that perched victory upon his
banner. The newspapers referr
ed to, have from the very begin
ning of his entrance into the gu
bernatorial race kept up a con
stant fire on him, and, even after
he was elected, they would not
hold up, but continued with their
nagging until their influence with
the masses so far as they relate
to Blease is concerned falls flat.
The Spartanburg Herald we
think it is that recently alluded
to The Times as a defender of
Blease, for the information of that
contemporary we shall say it is
mistaken, we give him credit
when his acts meet with our ap
proval, and criticise him when
they do not approve of his
acts, but, in our criticisims- we
endeavor to be absolutely fair,
we do not misrepresent and abuse
- him to poison the public mmnd,
with a view of doing him injury
for the benefit of some favorite
who is aspiring to the office he
holds,but because of this position
taken by us, the violent opposi
tion -look upon us as his chamn
The Times, as long as it is our
privilege to conduct its editorial
policy, will never lend itself to
any conspiracy to defeat an of
ficial; whenever the times comes1
to advocate a candidate's cause
we shall be heard from as to our
choice.JIf in our opinion the pres
ent governor is deserving of re
election there will be no hesitency
on our part to say, but if in our
opinion a candidate comes for
ward wnom we believe will fill
the position better we may be
counted upon to do what little we
can for his election. This scour-:
ing the woods for "anybody to
beat Blease" does not appeal to
us. nor will it be calculated to
help the cause of the man they
induce to oppose him. Why not
wait until after the coming ses
sion of the legislature adjourns,
and then sum up the administr-a
tion in a fair, honest marnner. give
credit for the good things and
put the stamp of disapproval on
the bad things, there will be a:
considerable of each, but to ex-'
aggerate little incidents into
great wrongs, and to resort to
misrepresentation to weaken his
influence with the people is a
boomerang sure and certain.
It is rather dangerous to boast
of being invincible. or going
about with a chip on the,
shoulder. We have known
men to do this and then
wake up to fiind themselves look
ing for the man who struck Billy
Patterson. There is nothing,
however, like having an abiding
faith in the people standing by
him, but when Governor Blease
says he can win over all-comners
he dbes not take into account the
fact that the public mind is fickle
and liable to change. If there is
anything in the present indica
tions tbe opposition to the gov
ernor will be strenuous, the tight
that will be made to wrest the
honor from him will not be of the
ordinary kind, when the race is
merely a choice of men. In the
coming contest, the choice of men
will not figure as greatly as it
has done the past few years. rThe
governor has made a recorda
which will be assailed, and the
opposition will lay aside evr
-issue they may favor to accom
plish their one desired end-the
defeat of Blease. Therefor e wxith
this condition facing him w e think
the boast the governor makes of
being able to defeat the other
candidates spoken of is impolitic
to sa the least of it.

cause, we do not approve of his
manner of assailing people, nor
are we satisfied of the truth of
his utterances. We presume the
request to reproduce was made
of us because of the supposed un

about the reunion at Columbia,

some people were greatly shock

perhaps well nmeaning people, did
more harm by the exposure than
good. The old soldiers who had
taken on a little too much were
out for a good time, and meeting
up with Bill and John whom they
had not seen since the "blow-up"

Visiting Scenes Qr Yore.
Editor The Manning Times:-To' In
terest and to entertain the readers of
The Times I will tell them of my visit
a few weeks since to Washington, Bal
timore and other points.
On the 18th of July last I left home to
visit my son, .Mr.Robert L. Jones. who
is now and have been for several years
a resident of Baltimore. My son meet
ing me at Washington we proceeded to
Baltimore, 40 miles distant from Wash
ington, and resting over till on Thurs
day eveningJuly 20th, we left Baltimore
by way of Washington to attend the re
union of the Blue and Gray at the battle
field of Manassas on the 21st of July, be
ing the fiftieth anniyersary of the battle
of Manassas. The town of Manassas is a
pretty little town, and does not look like
it did when I last saw it, and is situated
six miles from the battle field of Man
assas. At the town of Manassas I met a
good many of the veterans, both of the
Blue and the Gray, and they each ap
peared to have the kindest feeling fQr
each other. At the town of Manassas it
was the good fortune of the writer to La
kindly entertained by some of the gooa
ladies who treated him kindly and re
spectfully and I will further add with
On Friday morning after hiring a
hack and a driver we wended our way
to the battle field of Manassas, reach
ing there about nine o'clock a. m. On
reaching the battle field we found a
scattering iew, but as the ay grew
older, the people from the surrounding
country began to pour in. and when the
people quit.coming the crowd was esti
mated at being six thousand.
The place of meeting was in the yard
of the Henry house and in the near vic
initv. The part of the battle field lay
ing to the right of a road leading from
a pnblic road to the Henry house was
selected for the movements of those
taking part in the exercises. On this
part of the battle fleld it is said some
hard fighting was done between the
Blue and Gray on July 21st, 1861. On
this part of the battle field are several
markers showing the spots where prom
inent warriors in the battle yielded up
their lives. There was a marker on
which the inscription reads: "Here is
where the 7th Georgia Regiment cap
tured Rickett's Battery."
A short distance from the Henry
house and on the edge of the yard re
pose the remains of Mrs. Judith Henry,
who was killed in the house during the
battle of Manassas. Surrounding this
sacred spot is a small iron fence with a
fine tomb stone and on the stone reads:
"Sacred to the memory of Mrs. Judith
-Henry in the 85th year of her age,
and who was bed ridden and was killed
July 21st. 1861." It was said of this
poor oid lady that when the battle be
gan she was left alone in the house, and
during the battle a shell struck' the
house, went through the room in which
she wrs confined and the shell in pass
ing through the room exploded, and the
old lady was instantly killed by a frag
rant of the bursting shell.
At the field of Manassas was assem
bled about three hundred United States
regular cavalry, and State National
Guards. and the Regulars took up their
part of the program by performing many
military maneuvers, doing some of the
prettiest riding I ever witnessed.
Governor Mann and his staff with a
few distinguished Virginians was pres
ent and made speeches along the right
'line. President Taft it was given out
would visit the battle field and address
the veterans. but for some reasons he
never put in an appearance.
The clasping of hands between the
Blue and the Gray took place between
one and two o'clock and- seemed to be
pleasant indeed between the once bitter
foes. The sun was intensely hot at this
time, but this part of the program was
nicely carried out.
At the o'clock the crowd left the bat
tle field and returned to the town of
Manassas. Axt the town the people as
sembled on the court house square to
receive and hear a speech from Presi
dent Taft. The president arrived after
being an hour late owing to a down pour
of rain having caught him on his route.
The president spoke briefly and his
speech was well timed and was well re
ceived. The president came by the au
tomobile route and had a pretty trying
experience ivith swollen creeks and a
muddy road. After the exercises on the
court bouse square the president left for
Washington by rail, not wishing to risk
the automobile on the home stretch.
The school girls of the town carried
out their part of the program in their
drill and other maneuvers assigned to
them in a pleasant ann creditable man
ner. There were forty six of the school
girls representing. the forty six states of
the American union. Thirteen of the
larger girls representing the thirteen
colonies and the rest of the states were
represented in military style, the tall
est on the right, or the first state ad
mitted on the right and so on down the
line. So ended the Manassas Peace Ju
biee and the reunion of the veterans of
the Blue aud the Gray.
We left the town of Manassas about
six o'clock on the evening of July 21st
and reached Baltimore at eight o'clock.
Baltimore is a large and pretty city and
is said to contain six hundred thousand
inhabitants. I spent a pleasant time in
Batimore taking in many of the places
of amusement and visiting many places
of note. We visited old Fort McHenry.
Fort McHenry is situated on the Chesa
peake Bay and is five miles ride on a
trolley car from the centre of the city
of Baltimore. The fort I guess contains
about three acres of ground. There is
in this fort twelve cannons consisting of
eight smooth bore and four rifled guns,
the whole is fitted for a sham battle
only, for in a conflict with battle ships
carrying modern guns, every gun in
this fort could be dismounted in twenty
minutes. In 1814 during the bombard
ment of Fort McHenry by the British,
Francis S. Key, an American, while be
ing detained on board an English ves
sel wrote the song, "The Star Spangled
On the 30th of July we left Bal
timore with other excursionists to
visit Gettysburg and the battle field
arriving at Gettysburg at eleven
o'clock. From general appearances of
this town, I think there has been very
little improvement since the war. After
partaking of a fine dinner we wvere as
signed to a fine hack with six others, in
cluding the hack driver who was a white
man, we left to ride over and take a
view of important points of the late bat,
ie field of Gettysburg. In leaving the
town for the battle field we took the
Emmett road, and coming back to the
town we traveled the road known as
Hancock's Avenue. The guide pointed
out to us the peach orchard, the devil's
den, big round top mountain and the
valley of death, points where some des
perate lighting was done on that mnem
orable day. In returning to the town we
p~assed other fighting points and amxong
them, the point where Pickett's Divis
ion made its fatnous charge. The stone
fence that Pickett and his men made
the charge over remainsin tact till today.
Th eCon federates crossed this stone fence]
amid a tempest of leden and iron hail,
broke through the Union lines when thei
Union troops from different points of
the field converged on this point mak
inn ten men to the Confederate's one. I
The confederates were repulsed and]
they fell back to their positions in good
order. It was said the carnage at this
~oint was simply av ful. In returning to
Gettysburg we passed through and
a-ound the National Cemetery. In this 1
cemetery is buried 3,722 Union soldiers I
who were killed in the battle of Gettys
burg. On this battle field has beeni
erected 475 monuments. marking the
spots where different commands fought,
and where different union officers feli.
On the surburbs of Gettysburg we saw f
several old buildings that had many<
cannon shots and minie ball holes <c
though them, and we had a house It
pointed out to us in which there was alj
woman kiiled in during the battle of
On Augustn .,h we left Raltimore and
came on to Washington, and after spend
ing a few hours in sight seeing in this
city, we turned our face homeward. We
concluded weivould stop over at Peters
burg and once noie see the crater. We
left Washington et twelve NI., arriving
at Petersburg at four o'clock.
According to previous aopointment I
a gentleman who in correspondence
agreed to furnish a conveyance and
take me to the crater, and qn my arrival
at Petersburg I met the gentlemanq in
question, who kindly drove me over
some of the bittle fields around Peters
burg and then on to the crater. In walk
ing around the crater T considered I was
treading on sacred ground, for I. well
knew that in this crater, mingling their
dust with the dust of their mother earth
was two hundred and seventy six gal
lant South Carolinians and Virg-inians.
At this spot two hunired and fifty South
Carolinians and twenty six Virginians
gave their lives in defence of the honor
and the rights of our beloved South
land. In walking around this hallowed
spot I was constrained to repeat:
.-Where Glory guards with solemn
sound, bivouac of the dead."
On that evening at eight o'clock at
Petersburg I boarded the .Tacksonville
and West Indian limited and lauded at
Lanes the next morning at six o'olock
and thence to my home. Thus ended
my pleasant trip to Washington. Balti
more and other points.
GEORcE R. JONES.
Davis Station, S. C.. September 2, 1911.
Of Interest to Trastees, Teachers and
I desire to call the attention of trus
tees, teachers and patrons throughout
the county to this article in the hope
that good may result from it. All are
doubtless aware of the recent text book
adoption, and the storm of disapproval
which it has aroused in some sectious.
Now that the schools are about to open,
most every patron .is fearful that his
pocketbook is going to be severely tax
ed. Let us calmly consider the question
Before the State of South Carolina pro
vided the la w for a state adoption, it was
left to the teachers and trustees to select
the text books desired. The result was
that the text books were changed al
most as frequently as the schools chang
ed teachers. This plan became such a
nuisance, and worked such a hardship
on the people, inasmuch as each school
had its own adoption, and when the pu
pils changed schools they frequently
had to change their entire set of books,
that this State finally saw the neen for
a uniform system and standard in order
to protect her citizens from these fre
quent changes, hence the machinery of
the law as it now exists which provides
that an adoption shall hold good for at
least five years. The adoption recently
made will stand until 1917. and all
schools and patrons have until Decem
ber 1912 in which to gradually work in
to the new adoption.
The advice which I desire to give to
the trustees and teachers throughout the
county is to organize their classes in the
old books of last year as far as practic
ab.e. letting the pupils take up tie work
where they left off, or wherever, in the
judgment of the teacher, the pupil can
do the best work. Continue the- text
book until a favorable opportunity and
necessity arises, at which time a change
to the new adoption can be made with
the least trouble and expense. For in
stance a class may lack one, two, three
or more months to complete a certain
book now in use. If advancement be
deemed advisable, then let the class to
be promoted take their old books and
exchange them as part pay on the new
books. Possibly if the old bootcs shall
have been finished early enough in the
session, they may be made to do service
in another class, and thus can pass
throughout the entire session of 1911-12
and even a few months in the fall of
1912 before the exchange time, limit
will expire. I would most strenuously
urge and advise teachers against a
wholesale change to begin with. If you
are a new teacher in the school, then
take time to use the old text books until
you know the conditions well enough
not to make a mistake. Of course there
will be instances when the new hooks
may have to be prescribed from the first:
but if the teacher is careful, and will
observe these simple directions, the'ne w
adoption will be worked in so gradually
during the next fourteen months that
the people will scarcely feel it over any
other year. As to the patrons, now do
not imagine that every cent you may
spend during the next year for needed
books, stationery, etc., is caused by the
new adoption. You must needs expend
some money each year on your children.
Weigh these matters carefully and con
siderately and I feel sure it will not he
half as bad as has been picturied.
After the exchange period begins the
depository here will very likely have
second hand books which can be bough t
to temporarily fill needed gaps, and
later on can' be exchanged for new books
by paying part cash. I have made a very
careful study of the question, and while
it gives much tronble to those of us who
handle the depositories yet to the peo
pe who must eventually buy the new
books, if the teachers will use good
judgment and not rush on to attempt a
wholesale exchange at once, the matter
will soon adjust itself, and by another
year the people wtll not be conscious of
having had the agitation which now ex
ists. Trustees are requested to see that
a copy of this article is put into the
