THE YOUNG M;EVS CHRISTIAN
Governor Manning In a recent ad
dress before the Y. M. C. A. ut Green
ville, set forth some of the advantages |
accurlng to any community on ac
count of tho presence of this organi
zation. Governor Manning's idea is j
that u progressive community cannot
afford to do without the agency of the
Young Men's Christian Association.
Ho says: "From my experience In
Suinter, I know the difficulty In get
ting business men tvj step forward
and take an active part in this work,
yet It Is a duty of the elders, and the
business men of jreonvlllc, to exer
cise their influence in fixing this In
stitution in its rightful place In this
community." "What applies, of course,
to tho cities of Sumter and Greenville,
applies with equal force to Anderson.
The question is not whether Anderson
can afford to have a Y. M. C. A. build
ing, but the question Is can Anderson
afford not to have a Y. M. C. A. Build
ing and a Y. M. C. A. organization.
Governor Manning, continuing said :
"As We advance In civilization. ; our
problems become moro complex. More
than ever beforo our young men are
leaving* home to seek their livelihood
and make their places In the world.
They are flooding the cities. Consider
what the Y. M. C. A. means, and can
do for theso men. Here they find an
open door to a second home. Thoy se
cure In the Y. M. C., A. dormitory,
safely from the temptations of other
surroundings. The first few months
In a strange town means the making,
or the blighting, of a young man's
\ career. In this connection, I do not
f,eo bow wo con get along without the
Y. M. C. A.
"You business men know how char
acter counts in business. In the de
velopment of character, this associa
tion means a great deal. If a business
man has young employees who are
members of tho Y. M. C. A., the ease
?v of. mind which ho feels in knowing
that they are all right 1b worth his
contribution many times over. He has
confidence in auch men.
"This institution Is self-sustaining
in tew places, for the reason that, it
' helps freely so many who are without
money. This Is an . Investment In
- ' character-building. It is hard' to j
finance a Y. M. C. A. because it is |
' ' not Intended us a hioney-m?klng* of-1
ganizatlon. It la not for the rich boy
and- young man, but for all classes.
The poorer they arc, the more neceB
sary for them In Y. M. C. A. If the
' . y. M. C: A. were self-sustaining, the
.v**pobr boys could not enter Its doors.
The community must shoulder the
financial burden because the com
~, munlty most benefits from the service
of .Abe Y. M. C. A.
I So much for what Governor Man
ning thinks of the Y. M. C. A.
We regret very much the seeming
Indiff?rence among the business men
j of Anderson as to the fate of the Y.
M. C. A. organization in this city.
a While it seems that financial troubles
will stand in the way of continuing
the work, wo cannot but feel It would
ho a good Investment from every point
*yt view for this organisation to be
kept Intact, and for there to be not
V only an organization but.a. building,
; ! which would do credit -in the city.
? Thl^ ia a preposition !n which the en
' tire city should be Interested, and it
:' the people could be, brought to realize
V ; tile Importance of the.Y. M. C. A. to
1 the moral life of a community, we do
Vi ; not feel there would be any hesitancy,
1 or any. doubt., but that R could tr
V^mad** a permanent Institution.
\: , The Intelligencer trusts that when
the time comes for a decision on.this
Important mat*.er, that tho force?
which are behind the moral up-llt* at
\\6 community, will; predominate, and i
that Anderson shall have not oUty]
? Y. M. C. A. organisation, but
building which will do-credit to the
city, and be' a power for. good, as Is
l??waya the caro whero these building*
HOW OTIIFHM HKK IT.
It in a good Idea for those who are
contemplating Hie proposed bond la
sue for Andon.'.m County, to learn
how Informed parsons in other Slates
look at this matter. We are In re
ceipt of a letter from Hon. John C.
Orewery. Raleigh, N. C, In which he
says "If your county will vote this
bond issue of $7.r>0.000 for good roads,
it will bo the very best Investment
thot you can posslNy make."
'.'he way those who have become
accustomed to good roads look at the
proposition is an indication of how
the people of Anderson County would
look at it after the issue had been
voted. There can bo no mistake in a
business way for our people to sup
port this good roads bond measure,
and tills statement Is made advisedly.
The arguments which have been ad
vanced so far In opposition to the pro
posed bond issue are no doubt the
sincere convictions of those advanc
ing them, hut the Anderson County of
today Is very different from the An
derson County of fifty years ago, ami
the ronds which were good enough
then are not good enough now.
The population of the county has in
creased and the amount of traffic on
the roads has also greatly Increased.
The competition which every one has
to meet these days requires thut every
bit of economy shall he practiced pos
sible either In the way of saving, or
In the matter of utility. Time Is what
counts, and If the farmer or biiBlnesB
man can by reason of having good
roads, Increase the efficiency of the
means used for transportation, then
it is economy to provide the ver/ best
That a team can pull greater loads
and faster, with less wear and tear on
a vehicle, over a good road than over
a poor one, is an'accepted fact by all
The Intelligencer has shown that
the cost of building good roads is
within reach of the people, without
placing on them a burdensome tax.
What we wish now to do is to show
that it is a good business proposition,
and one which will insure splendid
returns on the investment
THF. CONSTITUTION SAYS.
The Yorkville Enquirer desires that
we specify it what particular the pro.
posed appointment of Congressman
Johnson to. the newly created federal
judgeshlp for the Western District of
South Carolina deviates from the rule.
If this oppointment is made, it will
hp a deviation from the spirit of the
rule, if not the letter. -The formers
of the federal constitution'sought to
provide against congressmen being
appointed to offices which they assist
ed In creating. The provision refer
red to is article 1, Sec. 6, clause 2 of
the constitution -of the United States,
and is ns follows: :'
"No senator or representative shall,
during the time for which he vas
elected, be appointed to any civil of
fice under the authority of the Unit
ed States, which shall have been
created, or tho emoluments whereof
shall have been increased during such
time; and no person holding any office
under the United States, shall be a
member of either house during his
continuance in office."..
Congressman .Johnson was a mem
ber of the 63rd congress and the set
creating the new judgeshlp was pas
sed by the same congress. If presi
dent had sent Mr. Johnson's name, to
the Bcnatc for this judgeshlp before
tho 63rd congress expired, tho ap
pointment would undoubtedly have
I violated both, the spirit and the let
ter of tho constitutional provision. It
was intimated in eomo of the dis
patches from Washington that this
was the reason why the appointment
was not made before congress ad
journed. It is said that Mr.'Johnson
is not a member of the 63rd congress,
and that ho is therefore eligible now
to this appointment But this is n
mere technicality. Mr. Johnson was
a member of the 63rd congress and
is now. a member of tho 64th con
gress, and when tho spirit of the rule
Is considered, he is nvj more eligible
now than he was before congress ad
journed. The president' has lately
said that he would not give recess
appointments to persona where their
names had boen rejected .by the sen
ate, as he considered, such .action
would be against the spirit of the
law, though he had vue legal right to
do so. The president's .attitude in
conforming to the spirit . of the law
is wise and commendable. "The let
ter of the law kllletb, but the spirit
