POLITICAL VIWS Of
HON. J. J. CANT[Y
Summerton, S. C., March 30, 1922.
Editor of The Manning Times:
In view of the political campaign,
which will take place in South Caro
lina during the coming summer, it
may be of interest to your readers
for me to relate what I saw and
heard on a recent trip to Gopher
Prairie. On this trip to Gopher
Prairie, I became acquainted with
various groups of citizens, who were
booming and boosting equally as
many candidates for the Governor
ship of the State. There was one
group of citizens, who were advocat
ing the election of Smith as the next
Governor of the State. It appeared
that Smith was born a poor boy, had
3n0 educational op)portunities, had
taken up the occupation of farming,
and knewv absolutely nothing about
the economne and po)litical issues
which confronted the people of Go
phor Prairie, but Snmith had lived
close to the soil, with his own hands
lie had distributed fertilizer, barnyard
andl stable marfure, and actually car
j ed around wvith him the odor of
stablle manure, had made sonie sue
(ress at farming, was one of the boys
and to the manor born31, and( therefore
the citizens (if Gopher Pra1(irie argued
with sore degree of energy that
Smith would make a good Gover'nor.
There was another group in1 Gopher
I "airie, who were dlemandlinig very vo
c iferously the election of Jones as the
unext. Governor of the State. It uas
true~ that .Jones could nei1ther read, nor
wiite, had nlever hearid of t ho scien
ces of sociology or political ecolongv
hadl made(1 no( stud(y of the ii 3r-eaIte
',uestion of tatxaltion), had ne1 Iver reaIiz.
ed that men(1 are both soc'ial and poh t
ical 3animalIs and ha~ve certa in inter
ests m1 cO3iommo whichi perforce they
miust sel ve th rough the instrun01tal
ity of the State, but Jones had cli ppedl
the ear1S <of dIisemb loweled numerous
Germ1ans5 ml No Man 3's Land1(, and
ther~efore the citizenship of Gopher
irim mivairiabily a pplaudedl when
ever the nam o10(f JIones was mention
id in conniection wvith the Giovernmor
ship of the State.
There was yet an3othler group) in1
Gop~her Pra3irlie, who ( were arden31t l -
'""'er o05(f Richardi I Roe, who dIidl not
''Ilmm to lie a st atesnman, seldom read
She dlaily ne(wspapers, knew nothing
oI lhe vaIlinus uplift mo1vemenC~ts
which opiera:to und3(er thle protection
o nd trough the inlstrumenta lity of
the Statet, but Rich ard htoe had acqu ir
i'd coni35dera)ble expertns and5lil~ had
accumulated some wvealth in follow
hogs, and therefore the citienship of
(;(pher Pri':rie assertedl with some1
dtegree of reasoni that if Richard'( Roe
'oub13 so) readily become an expert at
('astrating hogs, there was no intel
ligent reason in the world why Rich
ard Roe shouldl not miake an expert,
and1( successful Gover'nor of the State.
Bunt the mo3(st inte'restinlg and amui~s-.
ing grouph in Go pher Prairie were
the friends of John Doe. It. was as
sorted wvith great, joy anud delight and3(
in a very haughty manner103, that if
John D~oe were elected the next. Gov
ernor of the State, he would pardon
all1 the rai'sits, mu1(rderers, violators
of, the prohibition law, and other
criminals, would veto all appropria-.

Like my friends of Gopher Prairie,
I have some admiration for such
characters as Smith who carry
around with them the odor of barn
yard manure, or Jones who clipped
the ears and disemboweled numerous
Germans in No-Man's Land, or Rich
ard Roe who became an expert at
castrating hogs, or John Doe who
could so audaciously fool so large a
number of his fellow citizens, but with
all due respect for my friends of
Gopher Prairie, I could not honestly
and without a. terrible wrenching of
my rola conceptions of citizenship,
vote for either Smith or Jones or
Richard Roe or John Doe.

WATER SPREAD OVER
RECOVERED IN DROUGHT
Ingenuity and resourcefulness are
both working overtime for irrigation
farmers in southern California. Wat
er for irrigation has generally a
higher value there than in any other
section of the West, and has become
so scarce that, in the absence of suit
able reservoir sites where usual me
.thods of storage might be put into
efi'ect, the practice has grown up in
recent years of spreading the flood
waters over the gravelly dall wvhere
the streams emerge from the nmoun
tamns. Where this is done the under
ground formations are such as to
hold the water until it can be recov
ered by pumping during the irrigation
'Upon request of conmmunities inter
ested in the possibilities of this plan
for their own dlevelopment, the Bu
reau of Public Roads, United States
Department of Agric'ulture, thrbugh
its agricultural engineering division,
recently made an informal survey of
what has been accomplished so far
by such :nderground storage, finding
that the method is now practiced on
about a dlozen streams in southern
California and that it has been effec
tive in raising the water level in the
wells through a series of years, not
withstanding the increasing dlemands
made upon them by irrigation neces
