MO INTEREST NOW
But little interest seems to have
been given the petitions that at> cir
culated calling for an election to de
cide II Anderson should go into a
commission form of government. The
people seem to be te&Ag the position
of The Intelligence!, that thia ls an
Inopportune time for bringing up the
matter at all. Uesidea ' there ia no
need to be in a burry over it, as the
present City Council has almost two
years to serve before the new plan
could become effective, as we under
stand that lt cannot serve to oust any
officer before li lu term af office ex
pires. Another matter is that If this
election bc held now and ls defeated
it will be two, and possibly four years,
before there could be another elec
tion, as tho law makes this provision.
So we would ask the unknown forcea
at work* to withdraw the petition, and
let us get through the paving propo
rtion, and wc then shall have ample
time before the next election for city
officers to discuss and carry the elec
tion for the comm)seion form of gov
What we need now is street paving,

Q reen wood Journal, .
The Columbia State la doing a good
thing for the producers of the State
In quoting the prices paid each day
on the markets. This will do much
good In equalizing the price? being
paid for the products of the farm. It
ls a matter, however, that must be j j
handled with great care, to keep from | d
discriminating against certain mar
kets, and the reports made will bear
-watching, for it ls considered a good I j
thing for any place to have a good | g
market, and the "highest in the State."
The Intelligencer yeBteraay had an
editorial stating that Anderson was
one of the leading cotton markets in
the State. Thia is .borne out hy the
quotations from overy section of the
State aa published today In the Colum
bia State. The market In Anderson
did not get into th?, report, but that j I
does nor prevent our knowing at least |1
that the Price paid for cotton in An
derson was aa high aa anywhere in
the State, and higher than in all but
two, markets, and one of them, Monea
Path, is in Anderson county. These
reports show great disparity In the
prices teing paid for staple products.
Evidently in. a great many places the
farmers are being deprived of a rees- I '
onable and fair price for their pro- j t
This is the work that the depart
ment of Commerce and Agriculture
should perform. If Col. Ebbie would
give his attention to auch mattera and
not to "hot air" tours of the State,
talking about'things not in his "line,"
and of which his real knowledge is
somewhat limited, the people of the 11
State would not be losing confidence 11
in him and his work. Why has not
this been done? Why was lt left for a
newspaper to see the importance of
such a aystematic daily report? We
feel sure that all the papers In the
State would be delighted to carry Just
such Information, and the taxpayers
would not frei at all "sore" If their
money should be spent in doing Just
this kind of work. As lt is there seems
to be only one newspaper in the State ??
that can get anything from this office, t
unless it ls copied from this favored 1
Quoting from The State:
In reports from cotton markets from i
36 South Carolina towna, the prices \
paid for middling cotton varied all thfl r,
way from 7 1-2 to 8 1-2 cents a pound.
Eight cents was the prevailing price
this being paid in 13 of the 25 mar
kets. Hones Path and Winnsboro led
ia the staple market by paying 8 l-2c.
There was a wide variation tn prices
for steined grades. The range here' in
some markets was from 3c to 6c a
pound. In others lt was 4c to 6c; In
?till others 6c to 7c
There was a greater disparity in the
prices for cotton seed. Easley paid
the- highest price for this commodity, ii
the farmers there receiving $2 per 10b f
(zounds. Mullins ranked. ssond, paying a
9.1.80 per cwt. Hampton paid $1.60. tl
In eight other markets, seed brought
$1 per cwt. Those were. Clinton, Ches, Q
ter, Union, Kershaw, Cheraw, Jones- y
ville. Belton and Plckens. u
There was a great disparity in prices ,
of grains, in South Carolina markets E
yesterday as in that for cotton and cot- n
Ionised' quoted the previous day. v
The price for coro ranged from 60c .
a bushel to 91.10, three markets, thos?, |
of Spartanburg. Clinton and Marlon,1B
??yi?R ino lotter price. It woo from
B?mberg that the 60c quotation was
mode. The ruling price woo fl.
? Il the wheat market oleo there woo
J wida divergence in price?. Three
quotations were $3 o buoLul. These
were-B?mberg, Johnston and Clinton. *
At the opposite end of the scale were tl
Ridgeland and Pickano these poy in g li
91.40 a bushel. g
There woo notable uniformity In o
oats quotations. The ruling price for
thia groin was 75c o bushel. Only one Ul
market, that ot Manning, paying 85c, s
went above this. b
It ls difficult to maintain anything li
like o Stable market for peas, incident tl
to the damaged quality of a large [
percentage ot this commodity. Morion
quoted prices os high os 93.50. Several B
others gove the range extending front r
91 to 93.35. Belton quoted $3 aa the B
price.tor white table peas. Tho ruling
price was around $1.60.
There waa not aa much variation Ul
prices for cottonseed meal aa might
hare been expected in view of the
range of prices ptud for cotton seed.

Hundreds of people wanted to go

Superintendent Dodamead of the Co

iIKIITENANT GOVERNORS WHO |
HAVE BECOME GOVERNORA
We have several times heard the)
omar ic by people of other denom
latlons, that the Baptists stick to-1
ether for one of their number lnl
a election. Facts easily disprove
mt assertion, however.
There; are more ' Bapttats In South
arallna than all, other denomlna
lons combined, and yet. tn all tue |
latory of thia State, no Baptist ha-?
ver been elected governor. " Two
laptista have occupied that exalted
osltlon, but both of them became
overnor through the resignation of
overnora. John C. Sheppard ot
Idgefleld. the father ct Mrs. D. D.
toColl, Jr., of Bennettsvllle. waa
lie -first Baptist governor. He he
arne governor after the realguft
lon of Gov. HuM' s. Thompson.
The second Baptist governor was
has. A. Smith of Tlmmonsvill?.
Ie served five days, between
lie printing of last week's and thia
ten? of the Advocate. : He became
overnor through the . resignation
f Governor Blease.
These facts show the fallacy ot
tie statement that the Baptists
tick together. , They ?ever would
ave had a governor ? of - this State
t governors of other denom?na
teos. ' had not resigned In favor ot |
lap tl st lieutenant-governors.
And Marlboro county'occupies the
ame position as the Baptsts in thia
ea peet, although the percentage ot
laptista in thia county ts much amat
?r than tn most counties.
Marlboro is one of the oldest, most
istorlcal. best and most progressive
ountlea in ihe State, hut th?. only
overnor thia county ever had was

mor Patrick Noble tn 1st?:
Only two governors ot this State |
ave ever resigned. Hugh- S. Thome- j
on. who bad also served as State BU
ertntendent ot education resigned as j
overnor to accept the position ot aa?
latent secretary of the treasury, of j
He United States under President |
loveland's first administration.
It ls a coincidence that the only
sro lieutenant governors who have
ecome governors throagh the re
Ignation ot other governors, were
&e only two Baptists who have ev
r been governor.
