BONDS NOT NECESSARY.
There will be presented to the
voters of the State at the next
general election the (question of
allowing the State to issue i81,
000.000 in bonds for the building
of a new hospital fur the insane.
We regard this as one of the most
important questions that has
been submitted to the voters in
many years. and it is a question
which should not be considered
from a political view point, but
solely from a business stand
point. When the measure to sub
mit this question to the people
was pending, the writer contend
ed that it would be a waste of
time to present the question, be
cause the people are not in the
humor to assume any more obli
gations: they are groaning now
under what they regard heavy
taxation, and in our opinion there
can be no way devised for the is
suing of bonds which will not
raise the tax levy. We said then,
that it was our opinion, the bond 1
issue will be rejected by a large
majority, and we shall continue
to believe this until the contrary
All know that the eongested
condition at the hospital needs
relief, but a lot of us do not agree
that the necessity is so great, but
that it can be overcome gradual
ly. The State owns 369 acres of
land in and near the city of Co
lutabia, this property is enhanc
ing in value daily, the State has
boiht 2000 acres outside of the
city limits where the land is not
so valuable, those who do not
think it necessary to build all at
once, take the posiion that in
stead of selling the present
city property at this time,
t h e State retain the same,
a n d every few years p u t
up a building on the property
outside, in this way the conges
tion can be relieved as conditions
demand- and the State will get the
advantage of the enhancement in
the valuation of the city proper-:
ty; then when the property out
side of the city has been built
with a sufficient number of build
ing for the accommodation of the
entire asylum 'population, the
city property can be sold at a
price much greater than now. If
however, the city property is 1
sold now the State will be a loser
thereby, and the tax levy will
have to be raised to meet the in
terest on the bonds, whereas, if
there is a gradual building of the
new property there will be no
need for haste for the sale of the
splendid residential site now own
ed by the State, and the levy will
not be raised.
As heretofore said this is not a
political question, but one which1
must appeal to the sober jud-'
ment of the taxpayers- We ex
pect those who favor the selling
of the city property to go before1
the people and paint fearful pic
tures of the asylum conditions,
but for the past several years
this asylum property has been
longed for by those who know a
good investment when they see
it, and these are anxious to get
their clutches upon this magniti
cent residential property, in fact,
we have heard there has been a
survey made, streets laid out on!
plats, and every other prelimi
nary step taken to take advan- I
tage of the opportunity for a syn--t
dicate to buy. There is no ob- 1
jection to these speculators buy
ing the property at the proper1
time, but in the opinion of many
this is not the time, nor is it nec
essary for the taxpayers of the
State to isyne bonds when they
can accomplish all that is needed
by going slow, and by going slow
it is thought will prove of profit.
1e reader of newspapers1
camaot help being impressed 1
w-ith the growing tendency to
wati lawlessnes throughout the
Union. There must be a cause
for this condition, what it is?!
No two opinions agree, some
contend it is the laxity in enforc
ing the laws of the land, while
others claim it is because of the
tendency to magnify small
offenses: whatever the cause, the
fact remains that there is hardly
a day but what there is blood
letting. Officers of the couts
have been brutally shot dowvn in
the discharge of their duties,
men charged with crime havye
been taken out of the custody- of'
the law and lynched, propertx
ha-s been destroyed, and vatious
other crimes are being perpetrat-'
ed daily. How can this be
checked? In our opinion it will
continue as long as there is such
a division of thought in the en
forement of law: in order for
the law to be respected the peo
ple must feel that the~y are not
being discriminated against, and
that every man has an ecual*~
showing in the courts.^
At present there is a wave e
lawlessness throughout the
land, it is not confined to any
particular State or locality. The
pres editorializes against it
;U: p:it preitelies against
t. and all good (tizens deplore
t. but there are none to point
)ut a remedy for relief. Has
-he intricacies of the law any
,hing to do with the condition?
rhere is a spirit of resentment
3eard on all hands against the
:echnicallities the lawyers take
idvantage of to defeat justice.
Jut who is to sziv that a lawyer
should not take the advantage
:f anvthini which will benefit
his "clients? The lawmaking
bodies place law upon the
tatute books, and the lawyers
"Id the courts construe it, be
::ause a lawyer tinds, when em
ploved to (feid a man for crime
Lhat the omission of a word, or
the ~nnction of an Act will save
hIs lient. is not that a part of
his duty to take advantage of?
yhen how can the laws be made so
these advantages cannot be taken
Ind thereby prevent the defeat of
ustice? Some say the lawmakers
should be men learned in the
.aw, but this will not do, as
:hereo is as great a difference of
)pinin ammiong the lawyers as
here is among laymen. The
)ml - way we can see out of the
problemu, is for every man to ac
ept the law as it is written, and
1s good zitizens frown down the
:iolations of the law.
Then too, there must be a de
nand for equality before the
aw: to impose a severe sentence
ipon some friendless individual
or a snall crime, and a light
unishnent upon those who
.iave influential connections
thaen convicted of grave crime,
s one of the reasons the masses
ose the respect for the law they
houtld have. Whenever the
ourts begin to treat all alike,
hen in our opinion, the people
xill gro w towards having a
loser relation to the courts, and
eel that it is a necessary part
)f this government which all
Iust depend upon for safety.
WHO TOLD THE GOVERNOR.
The investigation of the
vhiding-up commission finished
ts second week last Friday, and
rom the-published proceedings
se are glad to see the committee
ret down to something like their
)usiness. Witnesses were exam
ned uoon the issues made in
he governor's message, and
:here was not so much of indi
-idual opinion. Several of the
>ld dispensary board gave testi
nony but they did not clarify
he situation to any greatextent,
d I of them expressed themselves
Ls having confidence in the
nembers of the commission, and
lone of them seemed to know
Ohat the governor based his
luestions on. We do not know
vhere Governor B3lease receive
nformation which prompted him
. propound the questions which
timated there was wrong doing
mf the nart of some of the comn
nission, and the attorney gen
nal. but we venture to say that
f he will tell, it will be seen that
;ome of the old dispensary board
iad been taking, and when con
'ronted to make good they lost
heir memories. We never did
elieve there was any corruption
n the commission, and would
iave opposed the investigation
ad circumstances been different.
Ye are personally acquainted
vith a majority of the members
>f the commission, and we have
dways regarded them'above sus
>cion, they may have made some
rrors: we do not believe
here is anything tainted in their
~onduct. But we do believe the
~overnor has been misled by
~omel of those who profess
rendsbip for him, which caused
im to put insinuating questions
ni the message to the general
~ssembly. Under the circum
tances, if our suspicion is cor
eet, we do not think the gov
rnor wouldi be charged with
)ad faith if he exposed the
ource of his information.
THE POSTAL SYSTEM.
There is much opposition to
he proposed Parcel Post Sys
em that is being considered by
he United States government.
Lhe American League Associa
ion is sending out matter for the
ounty press to publish in oppo
tion to this system. The asso
~iation claims that with the inau
~uration of the system the retail
nerchant will be greatly injured
,hereby. The parcel post is be
ng urged by the great mail or
ir concerns, and if they succeed
he merchant in our towns and
illages will in the course of time
>e a thing of the past, because,
he mail order houses will be
able to sell for less; they do not
iae to pay local taxes, licenses,
>r be subjected to those matters
.nd things which go to keeping
tp the schools. roads, courts and
he other demands upon the lo
al merchant; they have no part
nd parcel in the progress of the
ommunity, and so far as they
rc concerued it would make no
Lifference if the local communi
is were to go to waste.
The opposition to the system
laim that the postal deficit wvill

nercial system wvill be revolu

DO THE PEOPLE WANr RURAL POLICE?
The has been so much talk
about the rural police system
within the past week, we wish
the county executive committee
when it arranges for the pri
mary would provide a box
whereby the voters can express
themselves for or against hav
ing the system in Clarendon.
This is a matter all of the tax
payers are interested in, and it
would be a good idea to ascer
tan whether or not the Repre
sentatives should at the next
session of the legislature pro
vide this system. The writer
opposed the passage of a bill at
the last session because he did
not think it necessary, and be
cause he did not feel warranted
in imposing this on the taxpay
ers, and because further, the
I powers given in the bill up for
consideration were, in his judg
ment too great to be placed in
the hands of police. Since the
legislature adjourned he has
heard criticisms of his course,
and too, he has been commended
by a good many for taking this po
sition: it is the desire of a Repre
sentative to conforinto the wishes
of the people, and as they have to
pay the taxes if they want the ru
ral police system, it should be
made known so the Representa
tives can act with some authority.
THE TIMES would like, for pub
lication, to have the views of
citizens from every section of the
county. Perhaps this would
bring from the executive com
mittee the privilege of a yote on
IT DID PLAY POLITICS.
Notwithstanding the frequent
claims that the recent legislature
did not indulge in politics, a read
ing of the interviews from the
different members proves con
clusively that "checkmating the
governor" played a most impor
tant part in-the long drawn out
proceedings. The State regards
a member who was disposed to
use his own judgment, and not to
follow blindly the lead of others
" a devoted adherent of the gov
ernor," but that newspaper is en
tirely mistaken, there are some
of tbe members of the general as
sembly who never have support
ed the present governor when a
candidate for office, but in their
capacity as a legislator support
ed him whenever they agreed
with his conclusions in the mat.
ter of vetoes, and these same
members were consistent in, that
on the committees and upon the
floor they made known their op
position to a number of the meas
ures which the governor vetoed.
These same members stood by
what they considered proper,
took orders from no one, but
was it so with all of the others?
.Did not some of the others vote
against their judgment in order
to gratify a spite against the gov
ernor? Was not notice gqiven on
the floor of the senate when it
came to a vote to pass an item
over the vetoed, that this time
the member would vote to pass it
over the veto, but in the future
he would not do so? Did not a
senator say that if the senate ap
proved of a certain veto "it wouldi
ook like the senate was endors
ing the governor"? Then if this
was the feeling which prompted
the majority, is there any won
der that the impression is abroad
the legislature played politics?
An attempt was made upon the
life of the King of Italy last
Thursday while he was on his
way to attend a memorial service
to his late father, King Humbert.
The King escaped without hurt,
but one of the officers at the head
of his escort was killed.
They have a bad way of doing
things in Virginia in the county
of Carroll. When a violator of
the law is convicted by a jury,
and the Judge pronounces sen
tence the relatives of the convict
ed man shoot down the Judge,
the prosecuting attorney, sheriff,
clerk and jurors. with the result
that the three former were in
stantly killed. The outlaws made
their escape into the mountains.
The statement that H o n .
Charles A. Smith of Timmons
ville will stand for re-election for
the office of Lieutenant-Governor
is gi-atifying to the members of
the senate who have served
under him for the past two years,
and it is hoped he will have no(
opposition. He is always fair, I
and courteous, and, when a pre
siding officer is that, it is all that
can be asked.
Let this be a safe and a sane
political year should be the motto
of every man in the State. The
politicians would have it a cam
paign of excitement so that they
can appeal to all manner of prej
udice, but the people should pre
vent these kind of tactics by de- I
manding of each man aspiring to
public position to show them his
merits regardless of the demerits
of his opponent. The man who
appeals to prejudice is not al
ways as safe as the one he de
nounces, most of this kind of ar
gument can be characterized as
stuff with which to fool the
The Bishopville VindicatorI
says that efforts have been made
to mnduce either Hon. R. I. Man-v
ning or T. G. McLeod to enter s
the r-ace for governor. Both of
these gentlemen have many ad
mirers in the State who would c
be glad to vote for them, but we c
doubt if they can be persuaded
to enter now that the press of
the State has practically given C
to Judge Jones the right-of-way A
as the logical man to defeat e
B~iease. We are satisfied that
ehr rchard T. Manningora
r. G. McLeod would make it in
teresting for the candidates so
far announced, especially if there
is to be a wool-pulling campiagn
between Blesase and Jones.
Collier's week y is after the
scalp of Secretay of Agriculture
James Wilson and it proposes to
go after him until it succeeds in
getting his goat. The Secretary
ilthough a. Republican, has al
ways been a good friend to the
South notwithstanding the fact
that some of his sabordinates
et a leak spring in the depart
ment last summer with regard
to the cotton crop estimate. His
administration has done much
towards awakening'the farmers
of the South to the need of culti
vating grain, and it was his
agents who came to South Caro
lina and taught the people the
way to farm profitably. W
should hate to see the good old
Scotchman lose his job.
Congress has passed the sugal
tariff bill, and it is now up to thE
senate. Chairman Underwood,
who is a candidate for the Demo
cratic nomination for the presi
dency, is being charged by those
opposed to the bill with running
the "steam roller" over them.
Louisianna is greatly interested
in the growing of sugar, thosE
pebple depend upon the suga
culture like our people depenc
upon the culture of cotton, nov
that a Democratic congress seeks
to take the tariff from this prod
uct the Louisiannians will no1
feel kindly towards the Alabam
ian when they send delegates tc
the Baltimore convention, and
should Mr. Underwood be so for
tunate to capture the nomination
Louisianna will be counted as a
doubtful State for the Democracy.
It will be gratifying to the
farmers throughout the State tc
learn that Mr. E. J. Watson will
continue as Commissioner of Ag
riculture until his successor shall
have been elected and has auali
fied. When the bill to make tis
office elective by the people was
pending, the writer insisted tha1
an objectionable provision be eli
minated from it because he was
assured that there was no foun
dation in the frequent rumors
that it was the governor's pur
pose to remove Mr. Watson from
office. But had the senate insist
ed upon keeping in this provision
the governor would have been
forced to remove Watson and ap
point his succecsor. The gover
nor's announcement that Mr.
Watson will retain the position
therefore is gratifying to the
writer, although he is not at all
surprised at thle announcement.

Eagle Stones and Luck,
Among the superstitious the eagle 4
stone is held in high esteem as a lucky
ebarm. Thus one of the richest men In
the world woul probably turn aside
the question, if It were put to him, as
to how much of his great success, how
many of his millions, were due to his 4
eagle stone. Yet for a quarter of a
century, perhaps even more, that eagle
stone has reposed in a pocket of his
trousers each business day. When
pondering over propositions that have
needed Immediate decision this mag
nate has been seen to take out this
stone and pass it from one hand to the
other. It is a genuine "charm" that
will keep away disaster, it is said, and
gets Its name from the fact that it
was found in an eagle's nest. Those
who know something of the lore of
superstitions say that if a ribbon or
some scrap of fabric Is passed through
the hole which a perfect eagle stone
Is always supposed to contain the po
tency of the "charm" is much en
hanced.-New York Sun.
The Welsh Language.
The quite erroneous Idea that Welsh
Is a language of consonants probably
arises from the number of w's It con
talus, according to a Welshman in the
London News. "W" in Welsh is gen
erally-and always between two con
,onants-a pure vowel, sounded like
"oo" in English. Thus "cwm" is pro
nounced "koom," rhyming with
"boom." What is really one of the
most remarkable features about the
Welsh language Is the number of vow
els which can come together. In Eng
lsh three vowels in success are not
often met with. In Welsh It is not
uncommon to fnd four or 9ve-e. g., in 4
"lywIawdwr" (governor). Here each
of the five vowels "ywlaw" Is pro-4
nounced separately In rapid succession.
Here are four lines, consisting en-,
tirely of vowels, made by Goronwy
Owen in the eighteenth century:

Site of a Once Great Lake.
The United States geological survey
has traced the early geological history
of the region that Includes the present
Great Salt lake. In the pleistocene
epoch western Utah contained a vast
lake called by geologists Lake Bonne
vile. It was 346 miles long, 145 miles
wide and over 1,000 feet deep. It cov
ered an area of nearly 20,000 square
miles-a tract twIce as large as the land
surface of the state of Maryland. The
surface of the lake was about 5,200 feet
above the presen't sea level, or about
1,000 feet above the level of Great Salt
lake. If the lake existed at present.
Deseret would be covered by 600 feet
of water, N~ephi, Oak City, Holden, Fill
more and Kanosh would be at or near
the shore, and Joy and Utah Mine -
would be sitnated on Islands.
