HHOI L? PROVIDE COMMISSION
The Intelligencer is heartily In favor
of an extended street paving propo
sition and trusts thut the legislature
will pass some act that will rutlfy the
recent vote adopting the constitution
al amondment providing for assessing
abutting property owners to pay for
half the cost of the paving. This will
be done with Jftlle delay, we are sure.
The next proposition, then, will be the
passage of an ordinance by the city
Council providing for an election to
maire this act operative in Anderson.
If the election ordered carries then
there will be paving done to the extent
of about 1200,000.00, and this is a very
much needed consummation.
Tho Intelligencer desires to favor
the paving proposition, and we believe
that the majority of the citizens or
Anderson favor it, but they do not
favor it so much that they will blind
ly vote for it, Just because it is called
street paving?' They must be convinced
that the funds secured by this method
will be wisely and well administered.
In other words, they wish that certain
restrictions be thrown around the ex
penditure of this large sum of their
money, and they are going to demand,
and properly, that a commission of re
sponsible business men chosen by
themselves, be elected to have In
charge this important matter. Already
much ls being said along this line, and
if the talk heard on every side means
anything, the people who vote will de
feat the paving proposition if this be
To take this out of the hands of the
City Council' should be to their liking
also, on account of the nature of the
work to be dode. If the people find oc
casion to "cuss" snyone on account of
the paving. It will be better of those
who wish to stay In their good graces
so that they might be reelected, to
have as little to do with lt ss possible.
And on the other hand, if they And
nothing to "cuss" tn lt, there will be
such a demand upon the members of
Council that they will have no peace
of mind .while the paving is being
done, and other important business
will be neglected. The Council can
take it from us, to use a slangy ex
pression, that If they really wish pav
ing to be done, they mest provide for
a commission bf three or five men to
have the matter'in charge, along with
their City. Engineer, and not attempt
to handle it themselves.
Let- ut-s tart this proposition right,
and upon non-political lines. Make
lt a business matter.
ONLY ONE MORE CHANCE
The Intelligencer wonders if tho
present governor will not alienate the
confidence end esteem of many of bis
followers and friends If he keeps up
hts present tactics the last week of his
administration. It would appear that
he ia trying to do those things that
will "shock" even his moat ardent
supporters. What excuse can he give,
?hat will go, for disbanding the mtll
1tia': pf Sooth Carolina by one felt
swoop? He surely dos not wish to
leave South Carolina without the pro
tection ot her cltlien soldiery in case
of a riot cr mob rule anywhere with
in her borders. True he has not used
the militia since he baa been gover
nor, hut that does pot mean that his
successor shall not have uso for the
strong arm. of our soldiers to enforce
tba law;- lt may be against race track
gambling, 'br to save some poor
wretch from mob violence.
If the Governor will now grant a
complete amnesty to all remaining
prisoners and. set every convict free,
restoring citizenship, it will be a fit
ting termination to his reign as gov
ernor ot the Palmetto State over
which a Hampton and % Rutledge once
ruled as chief executive. And, lt would
seem that this id about the last act
that he can perform that will excite
any but passing notice. His time ls
short, and he should act at once. It
may be a long way to power again for
"OLD GRANNY* TAKES ISSUE
The Newe and Courier discusses a
recent editorial In The Intelligencer,
anent the prohibition discussion which
has been going the rounds ot tbs
press. Or rather. The Hews and Cour
ter makes of this editorial a pea; on

ecutlve's office who wilt see to it that
iwhut is law for Anderson county ts
also law for Charleston county. Why
cannot a law be inforced by a central
government? Has not the chief exec
utive power to enforce any and all lew?
Are we to admit 'hat any county or
any section can i aside any law? If
the prohibition law, why not any
other? Why cannot any county defy
the "central government?" We admit
that this has been dope in effect, but
we feel sura that Governor Manning
wilt see to it that even Charleston
obeys some of the laws of the State.
According to the history of the past
few years, that county has been a law
unto itself, and especially In the mat
ter of liquor laws. Th. era will end
soon, we opine, and Charleston will
again bo "annexed to South Carolina."
'But, the enforcement of the law, If
South Caroline votes State-wide prohi
bition, does not bother us in tbe least.
The editor of The Intelligencer was
recently at the town of St. Matthews
on Monday morning, and went down
to the police court to see the offenders
rounded up. It appeared that half the
town were present to take part In the
proceedings. It was learned that at
the dispensaries the Saturday before
there had been sold approximately
92,000 worth of liquor. The result was
in this town of 1,600 persons, there
were more than a score of offenses
against the btw tc he tried. In Ander
son, more than ten times AS large as
St. Matthews, on tho some morning,
there were not a batt dooen cases all
told. Orangeburg dispensaries sold
?during December over 138,000 worth
?of liquors. Ot course all this was not
sold to the citizens of these two coun
ties, and this ls the very thing we
should provide against-tho corrupt
ing Influences of liquor being sold over
the lines. Ih o'vcr words, the nullifi
cation ot the local option exercised
by adjoining counties which are not
allowed to go ''dry" because of the
"wet" counties on their border.
The News and Courier says:
The Anderson Intelligencer, which
favors prohibition, confesses neverthe
less to some doubts as to the proposed
referendum. It IS afraid the liquor
people Would spend thoussnda of dol
lars In the effort to defest State-wide
prohibition, and lt dreads the debauch
ing effects of such an election.
But do the liquor people care
whether Sooth Carolina goes dry or
not? Have they made any effort In
those States which have State-wide
prohibition to vote hack local option?
The liquor people might even wel
come State-wldo prohibition for South
Carolina. At present.In many of those
counties which hsvr voluntarily voted
liquor under local option the senti
ment against its illegal sale ls strong.
Local authorities are active in pro-1
ceedlng against offenders. The law ts]
unforced. Under State-wide prohib?-.|
tion, with thc central government as
suming the obligation of making pro
hibition effective, the same alertness
and efficiency might not be manifest
ed locally. It ls entirely possible that
in time more liquor would be sold In
South Carolina under prohibition than
is seid at present under local option.
One of the strongest arguments lu
favor of local option la a matter of
this sort ia that the central govern
ment has no moral right to enact a
statute which lt ls not prepared to en-1
torce. Whenever it does so lt con-j
tributes to the disrespect for law in
general. It helps to breed lawbreak
ers and hypocrites.
It the reports from those South Car-1
elna counties which now have pron!*

matters now stand. There was less
