We are constantly being asked if the
Seabord is coming through Manning,
of course, the authoriti of the rail
road are not making th~ir plans known
until they have completed them and
are ready topee. In a number of
conversations had with getlemen who
we believe are in a posto to know
something of the movements of the
Seaboard people, we can give it as our
opinion that the road will pass through
this town on its way to Charleston.
Just when surveys will be begun we
cannot say but we believe that before
1913 is ended work will be commenced
to give Manning a competing system.
The Seabord Is going to Charleston,
and it will have more than one way of
getting to that city; It will take in the
Georgetown and Andrews route, and it
will also take in the route over the
bridge at Ferguson, this latter route
may either come via Sumter or Flor
-ence or by Alcoin. It is comning, and so
far as Manning is concerned i. does not

gives us an outlet which will compete

There is considerable agitation now
going on for the rural police system for
this county, but a little investigation
convinces us that nine agitators out of
ten are after the jobs. Tnere is always
a ready response from an element look
ing for easy money, and in our opinion,
the rural police job is easy money for a
:lass of people who cannot earn one
fourth as much at labor. We are yet to
beconvinced that rural police away from
he mill villiages is not a labor demor
lizing institution. It is worse, it is an
incubator for the breeding of blackmail.
Brief authority entrusted to irresponsi
ble men Is dangerous-like other dan
cers that had better be avoided even if
