It Is Mayor Hendricks.
At the election for mayor last
Saturday Mr. G. R. Hendricks
w as elected to fill the unexpired
term of Mr. S. B. Craig - ho
resigned some time ago to go to
Columbia to study law at the
University. The term will ex
piri April 1913. All the candi
dates for this office were men of
high character and the affairs
of the city would have been safe
in the hands of either of them.
Mr. Hendricks was elected by
a good majority. Ho is aI
Pickens man, having been bo n
and raised within four miles of
the town, and about ten years
ag() was admitted to the bar
and began the practice of law.
After a few month he gave this
up and became a member of the
firm of Folger, Thornley & Co..
one of the strongest firms and
ne of the largzest mercantile
establishments here. B his
courteous manners and strict
atten tion to business he has won
many friends andi stands high
in the estimation of the people.)
Mayor Hendricks will be ex-)
pected to hold the scales of jus-)
tice as evenly balanced as hu
mau wisdom wilE allow. Not)
to make fish of one and fowl o f)
another. To mete out the same ]
favor '-and punishment to the)

sort, and if the parents wvill not,)

away from such places.]
lie will be expected to set the]
pace for civie righteonsness; to]
try to build up sentiment to re
spect law and ord.. r and there
byV stimulate and encourage bet
ter morals. He will be look to to
lead the forces to improve con
ditions in the town, to see that
the taxes are wisely and judici
ously expended. To put the
dollars where they will do the
most good and last the longest.
all of which and more beside we
believe Mayor Hendricks is cap
able of doing and that he will
heartily endeavor to do. So
here is our hand Mr. Mayor to
congratulate you and to assure
you that every effort you make
to measure up to the require
ments of these responsible duties
and to build un Pickens morally
and mateially you shall hax e
