thrill of brave, hopeful excitement,
came the intruding possibility of
death and disaster, and the siren
moaned its low. irreprcssiblo sob.
The crowd at lllock Point eagerly
pressed forward to catch the tlrst
glimpse of the (Iqot.
Finally, around nn obtruding point
of land, came the Peking, majestic,
beautiful, awful. Hugging her tide,
in parting embrace, ste.\?ed the TJkluli,
chartered to accompany the ships to
the Heads for tlie benefit of the lied

of precious souls, passed from us out

The tears fell unchecked down Constance's

a nervous chill.
"Now is your hat pin chance," whispered

Governor Hcyvvard * Good Work. 1
'ihw Atlanta Constitution, in a recout
Issue, contained "tho following editorial:
Governor Heyward deserves tho
commendation not of South Carolinians
alone, but of all southerners, for
tho prompt and effective methods Jie
has employed to bring to trial (he men
charged with bding implicated in the
recent lynching in Berkeley county.
As told in The Constitution's dispatches
from Columbia, the governor,
not being satisfied with the efforts of
the local officials to run down The alleged
lynchers, sent detectives into
the county with the result that five
men must now face trial.
The governor has taken steps to insure
not only the arrest, but the trial.
free from intimidation, of the men
who, according to the testimony adduced,
aro under suspicion of having
committed the crimc in question. In
liis efforts he has had the hearty support
of the leading newspapers of
South Carolina, who have been most
earnest in their protest against mob
law.
In that state, as in every other
state of tiit* south, the Sentiment is
overwhelmingly against lynching, and
if the authorities are all as determined
as Governor Heyward In their efforts
to Irad and bring to punishment the
men charged with this crime against
state authority, the days of lynching
lawlessness will be numbered.
It will not require many such evidences
of determination to punish
lynching, such aR Governor Heywa/d
has given, to let the mob understand
there is no place for it in th? southern
states. Once the lawless elements understand
this, there will be no more
outbreaks to bring damage and danger
and disgrace upon this section.
It, is ininossiblo to nvnrpstlmoto Hin
value to the entire south of such an
act as that of Governor Heyward.
That act shows, more clearly than any
words cau, where the good people of
South Carolina stand, and not only
that state, but all others, are benefited.
And the benefit, can he made doubly
valuable by all officials demonstrating
the same spirit In dealing with
this great question.
