Pardons and Paroles

"The governor has granted a
parole to Judson Chewning whc
was convicted in Clarendor
county in 1896 on the charge o1
criminal assault and sentencec

Since assuming office on Janu
ary 17 the governor has extend
ed clemency in 254 cases."
Nothing is said of the facts
and circumstances of the par

and we know nothing of them.

A Confederate Monument.
The worthy effort of the Eas
ley Daughters of the Confed
eracy to raise a fund to mark
the graves of the Confederate
dead is to be commended and
every citizen should encourage
them with substantial aid. This
effort revives a long cherished
hope of the writer, and that is
to see a Confederate monument
on the cou'rt-house square in
No more worthy contribution
to the valor, heroism and sacri
ficing devotion of our noble sires
can be made than to erect a
monument worthy of their
deeds and names.
Pickens county furnished to
the Confederacy some of as
noble, brave and gallant men as
any in the army, and it wouuld
be in keeping witbttheir spirit
cithaprgedhing for their
ofsprignow to honor and per
petuate their memory in a sub
stantial way.
Almost every county in the
state have honored their brave
dead in this fitting way, and
why not Pickens? We have the
means, and surely we have the
men and women with sufficient
pride and respect for our Pickens
boys in gray to make the meager
gift. We somestimes boast of
our Souther n pride and chivalry;
we fairly chanit t1'e praises of
our dead heroes and get our
feelings turned wrong side out
when their valor is called in
questa - bt-th-sereiy va
porings, and are like the chaff
before the wind-soon forgotten.
If we want to honor our dead
and make impressions on the
coming generations, let us do
something worthy of them, and
put it in permanent form.
It has been the earnest wish
and desire of the writer to see a
monument to the Confederate
soldiers of Pickens county on our
court-house square, and there is
no better time than nOw.
We would suggest that the
Easley and Pickens Chapters of
JahrU. D. C. arrange at an early
day 'to have a joint meeting
and form a memorial associa
tion; from this meeting let def
inite plans be made to begin the
work of erecting a monument.

G.0. P.
A young hopeful in Pickens
was very much absorbed in a
cartoon of a daily paper a few
days ago. The cartoon was that
of a big elephant with large let
ters on the side,"G. 0. P.," rep
resenting the Republican party.
Turning to his father, he
asked: "Father, that is an ele
phant, and there are several
men on it, but what do the let
ters 'G. 0. P,' stand for?"
Father-"For the 'Grand Old
Party,' which the Republican
party is called."
Young Hopeful-"I thought
it meant 'Get Off and Push.'"
The boy kn~ows nothing of par
tyism, but the idea he formed
of the meaning of the letters
"G. 0. P." vividly pictures the
Republican party to-day.
President Taft is -trying to
guide the elephant, but the in
surgents are loading him so
heavy that he is calling out
"Get Off- and Push."

Wilson Sentiment Growingi
Chattanooga Dispatch to At
lanta Georgian.
Chattanooga will soon have a
Woodrow Wilson club, and that
the organization will be a roust
ing one to promote the- interests
of the present governor of New
Jersey, who is proposed for the
nomination as standard-bearer
for the united-Democratic party
next fall, is assured.
Leading Democrats of Hamil
ton county will have charge of
the organization of this club. It
is their pujpose to make it one
of tlje-est wires bearing "Wil
1son presidential eledtricity" in
the entire county. Local Dem
ocrats are almost universal in
their belief that governor Wil
son is the logical candidate for
the presidential chair and next
occupant of the white house.
Recently, there was organized
in Nashville a Tennessee Wood
row Wilson club, and Lewis M.
Coleman, one of Chattanooga's
leading lawyers and staunch
Democrats, was placed as a
member of the the executive
committee. The State club was
inaugurated upon the initiative
of the promoters, and not in re
sponse to any request whatever
on the part of the Wilson cam
paign committee.
The object, when the Chatta
nooga club is organized, is to
have every Democrat enrolled
on the list of members and to do
everything possible to further
the Wilson principles of Demo
eracy in Hamilton county, and
to at least insure a majority 4jta'
for the New Jersey man in this
Forming Wilson Clubs.
Roanoke (Va.) World.
Wilson clubs are being organ
ized all over the country, the
State of Texas being first with
19. In this work Virginia ought
to take the'lead. Mr. Wilson is
a native of this state and this
fact should make every Virgin
ian feel kindly towards him.
His career has been crowned
with many distinctions. As an
author and teacher he has, won
renown, his history of the Unit
ed States and his work as presi
dent of Princeton being among
his specially notable achieve
ments. His elect ion as governor
f New Jersey brought himt in
o politicial prominence and
made him the probable nominee
f the Democratic party for
president. Mr. Wilson has
tree characteristics which ap
peal strongly to people. They
are: Clean life, freedom from
professional politics and sym
pathy with progressive ideas.
'o have for their standard bear
r a man who has not devoted
Iiis life to office seeking and
freshing prospect, but the chief T
reason for the enthusiasm man
ifested in MAr. Wilson's candi- 10
dacy. WilFon clubs have been tl
organized in Arkansas, Cali- b(
fornia, Georgia, Missouri, Penn- ni
sylvania, Kansas, Oklahoma, fe
Indiana, Tennessee, Virginia, til
West Virginia, Colorada, li1- a
nais, New Mexico, North Dakota IL
Mary.and and Michigan. Be- f&
fore the - present year expires b
clubs will te in existence SE
throughout the country, and h
their membership will be com
posed of earnest members of the S
party who are anxious to see
leader's attributes in harmony
with the promises of their plat
forms. Mr. Wilson fits into the 0
situation perfectly. He posses
es ideal qualifications for the 2(
post of leadership and gives as- u
surance to Democracy that un- a
der his command the victories c
which it has won in the past
year will continue. The drift g
of sentiment in the rank and J(
file is overwhelmingly for the f
New Jersey governor, and if the s:
wiles and schemes of old timers a
are not successful, he will be ti
nominated and in all likelihood iu
elected. The presence already g
of 50 Wilson clubs in 16 States
is conclusive evidence of how i
Democrats in the country regard fc
the matter. n
Predicts Wilson Victory. 0f
Birmingham Age-Herald. p
McLane Tilton of Fall City, h
who, it is understood, is looking n
after the politicial interest of tj
Woodrow Wilson in Ala! ama M
and other Southern States, it
reached Birmingham yesterday -g
with a prediction that the gov- tb
ernor of New Jersey will be -he h(
next president of the United er
States. cc
"I have known Mr. Wilson in
personaldly for a number of of
years," said Mr. Tilton. "and I in
believe that his great ability and t
worth are appreciated by the1 of
people of the county. Follow-g
ing a speech of Wilson's in Den-e
ver four years ago I wrote him
that he would certainly be the
next governor of New Jersey.
When he was elected the next. -
president of the United States.
"I believe that Wilson will jt
land the delegations of practi
cally every Southern State 1o
with the exception of AlabamaW
which will probably instruct its
delegation for Underwood.
Should Alabamians be permitted
to express their choice in a pri- c
mary, I feel sure that Wilson j
would make at very pretty race.
There is no doubt but that he is fe
popular with the people of the.10o
State, though not as popular, of'
course, as Mr. Underwood." .a
