Thursday, October 11 - 1900
The general election will be held on
the 6th of November, and we desire to
arouse some Interest in it. Too much
apathy, indifference and carelessness
are manifested in this State in the
general elections. Not a single speech
has been made in this Stat4 on natio
nal issues. It is known that the Demo
crats will carry the State, and for this
very reason no interest is taken ir. the
election so far as this State is con
cerned. Sometimes we think that it is
really a misfortune that the Republi
cans do not make some show of fight
in South Carolina, for it they did it
would arouse the Democrats. Every
Democrat entitled to vote should go to
the polls and cast his ballot. North
ern papers and Republicans ofteu com
ment upon the smallness of the vote
in South Carolina and this has been
urged %s a reason for reducing out
representatives in congress. Go to the
polls and vote, if you are qualified.
WE publish to-day a letter from tb
Columbia city council asking our sup
port of the constitutional amendmen
which will allow Columbia to providi
proper sewerage system, &c. We ari
glad to say that we can cheerfully sup
port the amendment. A sewerag
system is necessary for the health of
city as large as Columbia, and with be
assured growth will become abso
lately necessary. The municipalit:
should hare entire control of it, an
this cannot be done without the adop
tion of the amendment. It a adoptio:
cannot hurt the people of Fairfieli
and will help Columbia.

properly worked. Fairfield has not

twore just endorsement be given than
to the proposed amendment of section
7 of Article V[Ili qualifying the limi
tation as to municipal bonded indebt
edness as contained in 'ection 5 of
Article IV, thereof. To m -- of the
people of the State u., rpoe
amendment is novel, and .ti it is here
inserted for the purpec of informing
the public generally, and of encourag
ing (particularly on the part of the
members of the general assembly) a
discussion of its merits in the county
papers throughout South Carolina, to
the end that it can be i'itelligently
voted upon in the ensuing general
The proposed amendment is as fol
lows: Add to the end of section 7,
Articie VIll this proviso: "Provided
that the limitation imposed by this
section and section 53, Article IV, of
this constitution shall not apply to
bonded indebtedness incurred by the
cities of I 'olumbia, Rock Hill, Charles
ton and Florence, where the proceeds
of said bonds are applied solely for
the purchase, establishment, mainte
nance or increase of water-works
plants, sewerage systems, gas and
electric-light plants (where the entire
revenue arising from the operation of
such plants or systems shall be de
voted solely and exclusively to the
maintenance and operation of the
same, and where the question of in
curring such indebtedness is submitted
to th.e freeholders and qualified voters
of such municipality, as provided in
the constitution upon the question of
o aer bonded indebtedness."
This proposed amendment to the
constitution is- of vital importance to
the city of Columbia whose population
comes from almost every connty Inf
the State. Growing with a rapidityI
that is without a parallel in the sta -
tistics of this State, her reeming streets
and busy marts bre the wonder and
admiration of all. The State at large
shares with her citizens in the pride
engendered by the growth and prom
ise of the capital of South Carolina.
There are but two things vitally es
sential to the encouragement and fos
tering of this wonderful growth-a
sewrerage system and a waterworks
plant which together, it is estimated,
will cost our municipality a half mil
Ion of dollars.
.he well b-eing Ar all the people, we
inust appeal to the intelligent voters
:f this entire State to vote solidly for
this. proposed amendment, for the
reason that Columbia is already en
cambered with a debt far in excess of
the constitutional debt-limit. Jience
upon failure to carry the proposed
amendment at the polls, our only re
course to preserve and foster the mag
nificent ouward march of oar city will
be to place these systems in the hands
of private parties. and that coarse is
condemned by every economic au
tbority, based upon the closest study
If the people of the State drive us to
this alternative, we mast accept it
even at the risk of ita becoming dis
astrons to our well-being and ad
vancement; for Columbia cannot keep
pace with her growth and the in
creased density of her population, so
as to properly guard her health and
comfort, without the building and de
velopment of these systems at an early
day. She feels the need of them every
ho~ur. Her waste places, silent re
minders that she was made to expiate
the alleged sin of secession, are fast
filling up with handsome buildings
which are being erected by people
from the different sections of our State
-people who are coming into our
midst in recognition of the fact that
the united patriotism of the good peo
ple of South Carolina will provide the
means for this municipality to work
out in its own way its aspiration to
become the pride, as well as the capital,
of the State.
That end, so devoutly to be wished
for, can be accomplished if your paper,
and the other papers of the State, will
editorially advocate this mealhre.
Remember that not only does the legis
lature meet here annually, but that the
hospital for the insane is here, besides
the State penitentiary, as well as other
State institutions, all of which will be
directly benefited by these proposed
We are sending this circular letter
to each of the papers in the State with
the earnestly expressed hope that it
