The Sentinel is not responsible
for the views of its corres
Every farmer who can do so
should attend the National Corn
Exposition in Columbia be,,inr
ing January 8. Few realize
the greatness of this exposition.
It is national in scope and there
will be agricultural exhibits
from 35 different stats. Foi
the first time this exposition
will meet is the heart of the
Sunny South, and this will be
the largest and most brilliant
yet held. There are mammoth
buildings connected to form one
titanic structure, heated bril
liantly illuminated; charming in
artistic arrangement and scenic
beauty; complete in every
detail-a world in itself. It will
be an incentive to greater
achievement in agriculture.
There will be reduced round
trip rates on all railroads. It
will be the greatest agricultural
exposition ever held.
Is c4 Dog 'roperty?
In 1899, the Supreme Court,
considering this question, in a
decue filed by Judge Jones,
says: "The reason for the out
lawry of dogs in favor of thieves
can hardly be regarded as per
suasive at this day and here.
and such crude application of
the principles of the common
sense. The fitness of an ani
mal for food is not the only test
of its value, to mankind; its
capacity for useful service in
other ways is often the real test
of value. Nor is the fact that
an animal is kept for the whim
and pleasure of its owner any
....rot of reason for excluding it
from the law of larceny as a
thing of no value, for amuse
ment has its valuable uses to
man. Neither is it just to say
of the dog that its name is so
base as to render it unworthy
of protection as absolute prop
erty, for Baron Cuvier says the
dog is the completest, the most
singular, and the most useful
conquest ever made by man.
When we are told that the
Greeks and Romans employed
dogs in war, armed with spiked
collars, and that Corinth was
saved oy war dogs which at
tacked and checked the enemy
until the sleeping garrison were
aroused, we better understand
Shakespeare's Antony when he
said, 'Cry havoc, and let slip
the dogs of war'. We should
not let our contempt for sheep
killing dogs and our dread of
hydrophobia do injustice to the
noble Newfoundland, that
braves the water to rescue the
drowning child; to the Esqui
maux dog, the burden bearer
of the Arctic regions; to the
sheep dog, that guards the
shepherd's flock and makes
sheep raising possible in some
countries; to the St. Bernard

The Primary System
Some time ago Senater Till
man addressed an open letter to
the legislatuer of this state urg
ing some action on their part to
safeguard and purify the pri
mary system. This letter was
L yery timely and contained some
very wise suggestions.
I Now is the time to make
amendments and changes in
our primary laws, rules and
regulations. In this off year,
when everybody can think and
act coolly and dispassionately;
when there are no politics and
no interests to be served except
the public good our legislature
should heed the suggestions of
Senator Tillman and set them
selyes seriously to the task of
remedying the defects in the
present system and making it
secure for the future.
As pointed out by Senator
Tillman if white supremacy is
to be maintained in this State
without serious consequences it
behooves our lawmakers to act
and act now. That the present
system is imperfect, that double
voting arid other corrupt meth- E
ods were indulged in and re
sorted to in the last primary
election there can be no doubt,
and it should be the earnest de
sire of every loyal, true citizen
to have pure elections.
It would be a calamity to the
State and brought with untold
- consequences for the white
people of this State to become
divided: and yet this yery thine
is going to take place next year
unless something is done to I
purify the primary system.
Last year the white yoters were
- nearly evenly divided in the
election for governor.
These two factions submitted
their claims and bound them
selves to abide the result of the
primary. but we all know the
Soutconme. There were charges,
-andl proof in many instances, of
d (ouble voting, ballot b o x
stuffing, putting names on club
rolls the day of the election. 1
allowing minors and those who
were not ,citizens to vote and
-many otier irregularities. I(
-This so disgusted and nauseated
a large part of the white people
.of the State that they have de
cided not to participate in an
other primary election unless
" these things are corrected and
such practices made impossible ~
in the future. The white people
shul stay together. It will E
- eteworst thing that could
happen to this State for them
3 to divide. They are in a posi- -
[ tion now to heal the breach
that has been made and prevent
it from becoming greater, but if
this opportunity is neglected
dire consequences may result.
1i If Gov. Blease would do his
t State a real service he has the
opportunity of his life, and that C
is to join Senator Tillan in
r urging the legislature to pass
strict and stringent laws safe- I
i guarding the primary. But he
V (did not say a word about it in
I his message. Surely the gov
1 enor will not overlook so im- -
portant a matter as this.
f Sinlce wxriting the above a b)ill
1has been introduced in the
1 legislature by Senator Nichol
son of Edgefield to safeguard 1
~primary election. It is too long
for publication here, and from
:a casual reading it dloes not im
press a careful thinker that the t
remed; proposed will meet the,
urgent necessities of the situa- ~
tion. But any restrictions are
to be courted and it is hoped
.that this bill or some other will
