THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 1912.
We are indebted to Hon. T. J.
lauldin for much valuable as
3Istance in getting out the paper
Many of our subscribers are
in arrears and we ask them to
renew. After the first of May
the list will be revised and we
do not want to cut anyone off.
but will have to unless they re
The family and relatives of
Mr. F. E. Cox have received
many tokens of love and sym
pathy in their sorrow, and some
have written letters and sent to
this office for publication. All
these acts of friendship and
tokens of love and sympathy
are greately appreciated, more
so than can be expressed. but
we beg to refrain from publish
ing these communications for
the reason that some may think
these columns are being used
maore than is prudent for a fami
-1y with whom the editor is close
vl related. We hope our friends
will appreciate the peculiar and
delicate relation we sustain to
the family and the public in
matters of t~his kind.
A Card of Thanks.
I desire to express my sincere
thanks and gratitude to the
many kind friends who '
cheerfully ministered to my
husband in his recent sad death,
and for their many expressions
of love and svmpathy to me
and my children in our great
sorrow and loss.

Mr. W. J. Belt to Enter the
The many friends here of Mr.
W. J. Bolt will read with inter
est the following taken from the
Anderson Daily Mail of last
Mr. W. J. Bolt, formerly
he Martin Drug
Shas decided to
* en ministry of the First
Baptist church, and has been
appointed'as assistant to Rev.
Dr. John F. Vines, pastor of the
First Baptist church. Action
was taken on the matter by the
cotgregation, at a meeting held
during the morning service Sun
day, a recommendation ot the
board of deacons to this effect,
For sometime it has been re
alized that the work of the pas
-tor of the church was too heavy
cfor one man, there being about
1.100 members of the congrega
tion. It was first decided that
clerical assistance be urovided,
Later, however, when it was
found that Mr. Bolt was avail
able, the deacons recommended!
that he be employed as assist
ant to the pastor, and this his
Sbeen done by the congregation.
S Mr. Bolt will receive a salary
~of $900 per year, and will take
*up his work at once. He is a
young man of sterling character
and worth. He has always
tkna deep interest and active
7part in church work, especially
Sin the Sunday school.
A short time ago Mr. Bolt de
cided tbae would fit himself
m er in the Bap
Schurch, and the ooportunity
now afforded him to study under
Rev. Dr. Vines will be one of
Change The Rules.
The Anderson Daily Mail a
few days ago in mentioning the
fact of the meeting of the State
Democratic Executive Commit
tee in Columbia last week saidi
that Judge 3. E. Brezeale of
that city who was a member of
the committee was also a mem
ber of a "sub-committee ap
,ointed to perfect the by-laws so
' hat they will conform more 4
T HIS S
~' They have bought the
present large stock of
osely to the constitution." I
oubtless the "rules" were
1eant instead of "by-laws."
But commenting on the subject
[he Mail said:
"There is one change that
Judge Brezeale advocated that
,he sub-committee would not
agree to and that is to provide
that all who take part in the
primary shall take an oath to
support the nominees of the
democratic party. The oath
now provides merely that the
voter will support the nominees
of "this primary." Thus it is a
person may be an out and out
republican, vote for the national
republican ticket and hold some
kind of federal job thereby and
thereunder and yet be permitted
to take part- in the democratic
party primary." He may as
sume a "wiser than thou" po
sition in national politics in
order to excuse his voting for
the republican ticket and yet go
around log rolling for some can
-didate in the democratic party
primary. Judge Brezeale's posi
tion is to eliminate all such from
the party. There are not a few
of them, scattered all over the
State, republicans for revenue,
who always vote or take active
part in the democratic party
affairs: They have no more
right to vote than these foreign
immigrants cut out by Senator
A number of friends asked
Judge Brezeale to permit his
name to be used for chairman
of the State executive commit
tee, but he declined on the
ground that the chairman
should live nearer to the center
of the State."
Judge Brazeale is right. The
rules of the party in this state
should be changed so as to re
quire every man offering to vote
in the primary election to take
an oath or obligation or pledge
to support the nominees of the
party, National, State and
This was the rule for many
years after the primary system
was adopted in this state and
we have never been able to find
any just reason for its being
changed. It was changed, how
ever, a few years ago and in
doing so the bars were thrown
down and an invitation extend
ed to every class of politicial
persuasion to walk into the pri
maries and help Democrats elect
their officers in the State and
County, but turned them loose
when national democracts were
It is no open secret that men
who affiliate with the Republi
can party, and any other party
for that matter, hold national
offices under republican admin
istrations and use their means,
time and efforts to advance the
Republican cause walk up to
the polls in our Democratic pri
maries and vote for State and
County officers and then in the
general election vote the Re
publican ticket. It isn't right.
It isn't good politics. If they
are Republicans, third partyites,
mug wumps or what not they
should stay in their own fold.
It is hoped the rules in this
respect will be changed

used our 8-3-3 goods last year, side by side with an im
ported fertilizer which cost him $16 a ton more than our

ended and the other commenced. Mr. Long has red
