Nut a Candidate.
Governor lleyward is not a prospect
ive candidate for any office. He does
not covet any man's position. Whrn
his second term as governor ends he
will return to his plantation in Colle
ton. This he mado dear in an Int r
view printed last week.
We do not understand that the gov
ernor has signed a pledge never to be
active In politics again. What he has
said means that ho is no more of a pro
fessional politician now than before be
ran for Governor and that when his
torm of office expires Le wiil go about
We take it that the Governor being
a young man and a capab'e man, situa
tions will come about when his ser
vices will be needed. The future will
disclose what his conduct wiil be when
he in urged to enter another campaign.
It is certain that the governor's eyes
aro not turned upon a seat in the sen
ate or the lower house of Congress
We wish that Governor ileyward
could remain just where Is for eight or
ten j ears to come. Since ho has been
governor there has been no breath of
scandal in connection with the gov
ernor's oflice. No one in publo or in
priva'.e has suggested or will suggest
that Governor He.wvnrd has junketed
ever this and other States on free
pasees. Thero has b.en no hint and
will be nono that the state penitentiary
or other public institution has contri
bu'ed to Governor Heyward's living
oxpocses. Neither iu private nor in
public has thero been or can thero
be any expression of suspicion that
Governor Hey ward has ever cheapened
his se!f-re3peet or the dignity of his of
lico by frequenting places where tho
governor should not be at home or
cons :rtlng with men who are not tit as
sociates for a governor. At the same
time thero i-* not an honest man in
South Carolina, of high or low degree,
who has met Governor Ileyward and
will not? *say tint he has found this
chief executive a plain and unpreten
tious gentleman of dcmocra'ic man
With some of the governor's views
on public questions we havo never
agreed. Some of his official aotl we
havo not commended. Nevertheless,
he has been candid in all of them and
his sincerity lias been evident and con
When Mr. Heyward's term expires,
we shall in any event havo the risk
before us of his inferior succeeding to
the ollice. It I? sure that no reasona
ble chance exists that a governor will
bo found who will be an improvement
upon him. For these reasons wo dls
t'r.ctly disltko to contemplate a change,
V.'e have spoken rather lightly of a
third term for Governor Hey ward,
knowing of courso that he has no idea
of running again. 1'ut we havo meant
a good deal of it.
While it would not be a kindn< ss to
Governor Ileyward, we should be
glad if the people with one accord
would gontly prcs3 all the candidates
now under dis^ussirn into their seats
for the present and force him to con
tinue in ollice until 1009. We cannot
expect any such good fortune but it
would be pleasant and comfortable to
feel that thero is no danger of anything
Jess than a first rate man ccmlnjr Into
this highest ofllco fo ir years more In
stead of two.
Mr. Dorroh's Farm.
The figures print d last week *how
log what Mr. 8. R. Dorroh accom
plished last year on one of Mr. W. P.
Harris' plantations tell what there Is
in farming in Laurens, We think that
it will bo a lmlttcd that had Mr. Dor
roh's cotton, all of it, been sold for
cents the pound he would nevertheless
come out fairly well. Tho figures did
not disclose the prolits made frvm tho
85 head of live stock. They did not
tell the value of tho chtoken8 and
other poultry, eggs, vegetables and
faults, milk and butter produced which
contributed largely to supporting the
laborers and proprietors. They did
not teil the value of the fire wood con
sumed They did not mention that the 10
or 12 famliio.', white and black, had no
house rent and no water rates and no
town taxes to pay. For most of these
thoso things the man who lives In town
would have been compelled to pay in
We bellevo that tho question of too
much cotton production is not a serious
one on farms like those. An uncom
monly largo crop of cotton may have
been produced by Mr. Dorroh this
year, wo do not know, but tho farmer
who produces us many things as Mr.
Dorroh and Mr. Harris will cot gen
erally produce more cotton than he
ought to produce.
Moinwhilo the most significant thing
about these liguees Is that they are
available. How many men can te'l in
dollars and cents what his farm is do
ing? The man who keeps books and
knows bis business is on tho straight
road that leads to succ:ss.
Whon wo remombor tho numbers of
farmers who ignore ail the principles
of business procedure, and accumulate
money In spito of it wo are encouraged
to believe that tho careful and Indus
trious farmer is f>tr away from starva
tion and suffering even through the
price of cotton be low.

What (he legislature will do with
(he dispensary no one can tell. We
guess it will do nothing of consequence
Mr, B. A. Morgan of Greenville has
lntroduoed a bill providing a high li
cense system with the constitutional
restrictions as to liquor sales. We have
not examined its details but It pro
bably has merit. Probably It ought to
pats. It hardly will.
Meanwhile the dispensary system is
rotten. It reeks with graft. Wo oan't
prove the thlevrry. Wo can't place
our hand on any man's nboulder and toll
him to come to ja!'. Yet we can see
tlio suns of thievery, open, flaunting,
unblueh'ng and ir decent.
Wo believe that if the plain, honest,
true-hearted country people In South
Carolina who are supporters of the
dispensary oould see for themselves
what the observant man familiar with
that which goes on in Columbia knows,
they could not In their righteous in
dignation easily restrain themselves
from flocking to Columbia In thousands
and tearing this villainous and loath
sorao institution from its foundations.
They could not discover evidences of
the tenth of the corruption If they were
in Columbia but they could not help
seeing enough to be convlncod of the
shame, the infamous and unsounded
depths of shame wich which this dis
pensary system has smirched and
coated and plastered South Carolina.
Proper Place Perhaps.
A story Is told In Liurens of how a
good old South Carolina doctor aided
an unfortunate wife In ridding herself
of a cruel and worthless husband.
The old doctor, out of the abundance
of chalrlty which possessed his soul,
had been faithfully attending the un
fortunate woman through a protractod
illness and was greatly Impressed by
the 8weetnees and gentleness of her
nature, in contrast to the brutality and
contemptltdenees of the husband. The
man would not work and provide for
the household, but went so far as to
abuse the long-suffering woman when
she could not do so.
The poor creature confided her trou
bles to the good doctor, who said that
he could not put the man In the Pen
itentiary, where he belonged, but that
he would do the best be could. So he
proceeded fo secure the co-operation of
one of his brethren of the profession
and Instituting a de lunatico inquiren
do, adjudged tho man insane, and sent
bim to the Insane Asylum.

A gcod woman, now an operative in
one of the cotton mills of this city came
from ono of the mills of upper South
Carolina, where she had saved up and
deposited a few hundred dollars in a
savings bank of that place. Just before
Christmas she wrote the cashier of the
bank to send her money. He prompt'y
replicd that If she Insisted ho would
semi the money at once but if she could
wait until January 1st eho would be
entitled to a credit of $22 31 Interest,
One of our local banks helped l.er to

over f20 00 by the clever banker.*.

Peace and Fort Arthur.
When Port Arthur fell, mixed with
the universal admiration for both d?
fence and attack was a genoral hope
that it might herald tho approaoh of
peace. That Russia can fight indefi
nitely on land, and probably will be al
lowed to do bo if she wishes, the world
concedes. Hut if Japan retains con
trol of the seas, by tho Baltic fleet's
destruction or failure to contlnuo Its
trip wbeo it hears of the surrender,
and therefore goes to work to make
Port Arthur an strong ss It oan be
made, besides releasing Nogl's army to
confront Kuropatkin in Manchuria,
everbody will feel wearied by the
thought of all Russia must accomplish
to get iuto an essentially better posi
tion than she holds at present. Plans
to drive Oyama, with his heavy rein
forcements, out of Manchuria, taking
one strongly fortified defence after
another, and then to capture Port Ar
