LAURENS, S. C, Jao. 31, 1906.
Mayor Heyward Mahon of Greenville
will expose himself to the enfilading
volleys of Democratic ballots in a race
for Congress this year against the past,
present and possibly future incumbent,
the Hon. Joseph T. Johnson whom we
mightily helped to raise?meaning by
"we" not the editorial "we" but Lau
rens county, ? though the editorial
"wo" has at sundry times been a stren
uous Joe Johnsonian.
This year the Johnson habit will again
be strong in Laurens though the Hon.
Heyward Mahon is said to be one of
the best men on the inside of jeans.
We have no objection to Mr. Mahon
acting as pace-maker for the statesman
from Ware Shoals?exercise will do the
latter good and keep him from putting
on too much flesh?to which he tends,
but Mr. Mahon is in our judgment not
the only man in the District whom
Johnson can beat.
Meanwhile what about that postoffice
building for Laurens? Laurens has voted
good and strong and constant for every
Congressman and United States Sena
tor who has been in office from this
District and State since 1886 and where
are the emoluments? Laurens is stand
ing by Tillman, Laurens is standing
under Johnson and Laurens oven voted
for that well known fire-extinguisher,
the Hon. Asbury C. Latimer and Lau
rens has nothing more than the aver
age outfit of free rural routes to show
for these exertions. Meanwhile we
hear of talk of public buildings for An
derson, Union, Chester, Kock Hill and
all the other sites of ancient and ruined
taverns in South Carolina; while in
Greenville, Florence and a few other
trysting places for disappointed lovers
the buildings are actually rearing their
stately heads and piercing the blue
Cerulean with tall towers and glitter
In this year of beauty and bounty
and good cheer we hope that Messrs.
Johnson, Mahon and others, if others
there be, will run for as well as in the
county and town of Laurens.
A $75,000 post office would do us
though it might have cost two million
in this town?which ought to be a con
vincing argument - saving to the fed
eral treasury $1,925,000 and all good
purposes served and appearances main
This is from the Columbia Record:
"All judges whose terms had expired
were re-elected. So long as a judge
fills the duties of his ofhee acceptably
there is every reason why he should be
retained. Life tenure for judges is a
proposition growing in favor, but in the
absence of that the principle of retain
ing them as long as they are competent
and satisfactory is just as good."
We endorse the Record's expression.
It expresses our view exactly. Because
we would have been glad to see our fel
low citizen, Senator Frank McGowan, a
judge we said nothing before the elec
tion. It would have seemed ungracious
for a Laurens newspaper to interfere
with the aspirations of a worthy Laurens
man, but we do say here and now that
we believe in the wisdom of retaining
on the bench any and all judges who
show even ordinary efficiency. A com
mon place lawyer elected judge will de
velop rapidly if he be given to under
stand that his position is secure. The
ablest and best of judges, on the other
hand, will be influenced more or less by
political considertions if the office is to
be regarded as a political prize.
We do not know Judge J. C. Klugh,
but we have heard lawyers say that he
is an honorable and capable man. We
hope that he and Judge Ernest Gary
and Judge George W. Gage and Judge
Richard ('. Watts and all the others
will be allowed to remain on the bench
until they choose to retire.
Our friend Mr. McGowan deserves to
be a judge, and we have no doubt that
he will be elected to a judgeship some
of these days. Vancancies will occur
and M r. McGowan will be in demand.
MR. COCHRAN'S JOB.
The Chester Lantern says:
"The press throughout the western
section of the state seems to unite in
the belief that Mr. Ernest Cochran,
the new district attorney, is the man
for the place. Mr. Cochran is said to
be unbiased by personal friendships and
untrammclcd by unwelcome business,
connections which seems to have been
the trouble with his deposed predeces
No mortal man can be a Republican
office holder in South Carolina and es
cape being "trammeled by unwelcome
connections", ?not ordinarily of a busi
ness character. A man of great firm
ness and integrity of purpose may be
able to perform the duties of his office
well and to keep himself undefiled.
This Mr. Cochran's personal record ap
pears to be good, but he invites upon
himself new trials, he ventures into a
filthy morass foul with infections. We
hope that he will sustain himself and
preserve the respect of those of his fel
low citizens in South Carolina whose re
spect is worth preserving but we do
not envy the successor of John G. Cap
ers holding office by the grace of a
President who cannot understand what
fa needful for the South's good. If Mr.
Cochran remains inactive in politics he
will displease his political master. If
he becomes active in politic?' he bids
farewell to the esteem which he now en
joys and ought to preserve at any cost.

NEGRO RAPIST WILL BE HANUED.
Andrew Thompson of Greenville Con*
vlcfed of Criminal Assault.
Andrew Thompson will hang Friday,
March 2, for criminally assaulting Mrs.
Frank James near Taylors on December
He was arraigned in the court of gen
eral sessions at Greenville and entered
a plea of not guilty. A. H. Dean as
sisted by Solicitor I3oggs in the prosecu
tion, J. J. McSwain appearing for the
Ten witnesses were sworn for the
prosecution, Mrs. James being spared
the ordeal of testifying. Thompson
himself was the only witness in de
fense. After arguments, all of which
were very brief, the jury retired, re
turning within less than half an hour
with a verdict of guilty.
Judge Aldrich commanded Thompson
to stand up, and asked if he had any
thing to say why sentence of death
should not be passed upon him. He did
not reply, whereupon Judge Aldrich
slowly and sternly read the sentence.
Thompson took his death warrant
with the outward calm characteristic of
negro criminals. He is a black darkey
of medium height and build, with down
cast, shifty eyes and an air of sullen
defiance. He is about thirty-eight
years old and has a family living near
the scene of his crime.
Saved from swift vengeance by lynch
ing, through the efforts of a magis
trate and a constable, Thompson was
placed in the Greenville county jail.
Later ugly rumors regarding plans to
break in the jail and take his life
reached Sheriff Gilreath, and he had
Deputy Sheriff Ballenger spirit the ne
gro away to Anderson. He has been
kept in safe custody by Sheriff Green
of Anderson, very few people knowing
his whereabouts until Judge Aldrich or
dered him brought back to Greenville
The last hanging in the Greenville
county jail took place several months
ago, when Fletcher Byrd was executed
for the murder of Magistrate Cox, his
companion, Palmer Creswell, being re
spited ten hours before he was hanged
for the same crime. Creswell and
Thompson now occupy the same cell.
Creswell's respite expires soon, and
unless further action is taken in his
case, he will soon follow Thompson to
the gallows. v

I Notice to Planters
At this season of the year all eyes arc turned
to sowing, for therein lies the success or fail
ure of every Planter. Poor seed will never
make a good crop, hence we have expended

can buy, and have on hand seed that we are
justly proud of and can reconmmend, such as
Wheat, Rye, Barley, Rape, Lucerne, Vetches
Red Rust Proof Oats, and Red and Crimson
Clover, and also a great variety Garden Seeds
If you want seed that will yield results and
increase your Bank account, try these.

of the same. Wishing all a happy
