No Time for Sewerage.
The people of Laurens should think
twice and perhaps three times before
they vote to bond the town for a system
of sewerage. The state constitution
precludes the contracting of a further
debt of more than forty or fifty thou
sand dollars. Such a sum would be a
mero bagatelle in the installation of a
system in a town of the area of this. It
might b3 posslblo with it to provide
sewerage for tho public square, the lo
cality proximate to it and along por
tions of Main street It might be oven
possible to extend it to one or two
other localities. When the money had
boen spent it would bo found that more
than half tho population wou'd be
without the system and with no hope of
obtaining it for years. A long period
would have to elapse before money
could bo again raisod by bonds. Con
sequently, admitting tho advantages,
most of tho people would be paying ad
ditional taxos for the benetlt of a fow.
Unless tho system should be given to
tho wholo community no substantial
sanitary results would follow. .
The additional tax would not be tho
heaviost burden added. Sewerage con
veniences of tho cheapest kind would
cost thirty dollars for oach house, for
the avorage store building with oflicos
on the gquaro the cost would bo ut
loast sixty dollars and for evory negro
cabin the expenditure would be $30.00.
Unless the sewerage connectlc ns were
mado rigidly compulsory upon all
ownors of dwellings, adjacent to mains,
the system would bo wor?o than useloss
us a health moasurc. To nuke those
connections with 3X) homos would bo
the imposition at ono time of a tax of
flomo $10,000 on tho community, with
tho bonenls to bo derived going to a
mere fraction of tho community.
Laurons is porhaps tho hilllost town
in South Carolina. Its natural dmin
ago is oxcoptionally good. It baa never
known an epidemic of fevor. Hundrods
of towns locited in Mat regions and far
larger and richer than this have been
and are without soworago. For about
100 years the capital of this state with
u population of 10,00,) poop'.o and up
wards was without it. In all this ttmo
it d:d not suffer but enjoyed bolter
health than the average community. It
is situatod on a lovel plain,
Laurens is located in the red clay
region. Our streets necessarily are in
miserablo condi'ion after winter
weathor sots in. This disadvantage
must bo overcome. The town cannot
grow until it is ovorcome. Such com
munities as Greonville, Anderson and
Spartanburg recognize this and are
building passable streets- Thoy did
not attempt to obtain sewerage until
thoy had populations inore than doublo
that of Laurens with taxable assets
perhaps four times ours. Tho work
that Laurens has done in macadant'zing
streets is the best work it bin ever
Already our water supply is insuili
eient. Seworago would double tho
dornend. Our resources aro barely
adequstj to provide the water supply
needed for Uro protection and purposes
o'.her than sewerage. Taking all these
1> itcnt facts into consideration, the talk
of sewerage at this stage of the town's
growth 803ms extreraest folly. Tho
system would doubtless mako possible
wolcome household conveniences to a
part of the popu'ation; but a9 already
polnto 1 out tho extension of tho sys
tem to a pa-t and not to the who'.o of
th)t)W0 would bo to eliminats sani
ta-y bmelits from the community gon
onlly. There is no "."gument in right
or roasoti to logh o an additional
tix for a favorol fe
Tho Mormon Nuisauco.
In most cases Tutu Advkrtiskr, be
ing a Democratic newspaper, would
with reluctance express a sentiment
favoring the scorning interforenco
with tho roligious convictions of any
so;t whatever bit tho nauseating dis
closures of tho Mormon leaders in the
8m"O* investiga'lon call for condemna
tion from all sources and ptrties.
Smith and C-innon, high functionaries
of the Mormon Church, deliberately
alltrm that they have continued to live
with a plurality of wives and they havo
been brazen enough to excuse them
selves on tho ground that they aro ful
filling tho laws of God. *
However dang rous it may bo in a
country like this for tho authorities of
stato to t9ko the slightest cogdzance
of a man's religious tenets, it is evo 1
more dang jrous to ignore such an at
tack on the family institution. On tho
integrity of tho American family the
salvation of tho nation wholly d?ponds.
The exiftenco of polygamy with or
without the countenance of law is a so
rious menace to it. When a Mormon,
who excuses polygamy, pvon though he
does not practice it, Is elect d to tho
American senate itcinnot be regarded
pave as an Impudent ohaliengn to that
morality which is comm n to fbo
Americ in poople of all religious and
even irreligious classes.
If this man Smoot be permitted to
bold his seat In the sonate, tho ioevita
b'o rosnlt will bo that the country will
be held guilty of compromise with a
form of immorality unspoakahla in its
vileness. It is the plai i duty of all
seif-respec Ing senators, regardless of
party llcos, to j??in in kicking Rmoot

To our view there is but ono side to
this question and the quicker the sen

concerned. If the State of Utah

During the last few months in a
number of South Carolina towns move
ments have been inaugurated for
"civic improvement." In these the la
dies havo taken a conspicuous part. In
Hennettsville, for oxample, a club of
ladies has been formed with men as
bolpers. which Is devoting Itself to
beautifying tho town. Trees are being
planted, grass plots laid out and care
observed to obliterate unsightly spots.
Nothing Is moro valuable to an indiv
idual or community than a good ap
pearanco. At small cost the public
square, streets ar.d eldewalks of Lau
rens could be mule and kept attractive.
For years Tin: advertiser has urged
that the courthouse should bo enclosed
and a plot of ground surrounding tho
building maintained as a little park. It
is said that the late Col. McCorkle,
who for m my j ears was probate judge
Of York county, cultivated a small
flower gaiden immediately beneath
tho window of hi* office in the court
house In Yorkvlllo and tho place was
an obi ;ct of lnttre3t to all visitors.
Nature has dealt prodigally with
this city. With its hills and ravines
and native trees the town is beau
tiful in spito of Itsolf. With only slight
attentiou its loveliness could be vastly
multiplied aud tho task wou'd be a
pleasant one to those who should un
The ladies of Lnircns havo hero the

already placed the town under lasting
obligations in tho matter of tho public
library. If it will add town Improve

of tho people will b) treb'ed.
To a Contemporary.
To the law of decay which is hu
manity's doom a good, strong newspa
per Is a joyous contradiction. This Is
pointedly il'us'rated In the special edi
tion of the Charleston News and Cou
rier published last week, in celebra
tion of its 100 birthday, A man bur
dened with thy decrepitude of a cen
tury would better dio. A newspapor
of a hundred rejoices in the strength of
its youth. Tho centennial edition of
our contemporary is full of valuablo
and interesting sketches which are im
portant parts of the history of South
Carolina und this country. Of course
tho mechanical execution of the edi
tion is good- as nearly perfect as is
possib'c to tho printing art. Wo think I
that the edition as compared with many
others of a similar charactor is spe
cially creditable on account of tho ab
sence of vainglorious and undignified
boasting. It speaks for itsolf.
The AdverTiSbR greets its groat
and good friend tho News and Courier
and expects to renew its congratula
tions exactly 100 years hence. Then
the difference in our ages will not be
so great. Aurovoh*.
