' LAURENS, S. C, June 6, 1906.
The Newberry Observer says:
"It is going to be a close race bo
tween Messrs. Jones and Walker for
the office of comptroller-genoral. Both
are capable men. They were oppo
nents four years ago, and Jones won
by only five hundred and seven votes
out of ninety thousand. It may be re
marked in passing that this i3 one of
the most important offices in the gift of
Four years ago we supported Mr.
Walker solely on personal grounds, al
though at the time we had a high re
gard for Mr. A. W. Jones as a manly
fellow, with plenty of hard sense.
This year wo are in favor of his re
election. We do not favor him because
he is a poor man and a working man;
that has nothing to do with the case;
but because we believe he is a compe
tent man, and is not afraid to express
opinions that may be unpopular. As
we have heretofore intimated, we have
no special admiration for the State
House gang generally, but we regard
Mr. Jones as of another and better
CHRISTENSEN AND LYON.
No two young men in South Carolina
have done more for the people than
Senator Neils Christensen and Repre
sentative Fr?ser Lyon in a quarter of a
century. One can think of no more
unpleasant and no more thankless task
than that of the dispensary investigating
Mr. Christensen is the editor of a
weekly newspaper in Beaufort. He is
a young man of upright life, a gentle
man every inch, tho son of a Danish
gentleman who came to Beaufort many
years ago. He was never in politics
until he was elected senator, and he was
chosen by his fellow citizens because
they respected him and valued him for
his brains and character.
Mr. Lyon, a gentleman of the same
stamp, is a young lawyer of Abbeville,
and a graduate of Wofford College.
Hi3 father is a one-armed Confederate
veteran, who has a clerkship in the
State treasurer's office. He is a Wof
ford College man, and, we are informed,
was a nronounced dispensary man until
after his discoveries as a member of
the investigating committee. Person
ally we scarcely know him, but we have
always heard him spoken of in the high
est terms by those who do know him.
No man can charge that he cherished
any prejudice against Senator Tillman,
and our impression is that he and his
father have been in former days at
tached to the Reform faction, though
the factional bitterness had perhaps dis
appeared for the most part when Fraser
Lyon came to manhood.
Certainly, neither of these gentlemen
had any motives to break down the dis
pensary. Both live in dispensary coun
ties. Abbeville was always a strong
Reform county, and Beaufort in recent
years has been controlled by those who
Lyon and Christensen are fighting the
battles of the decent and honest people
of South Carolina, not less of those who
favor the dispensary than those who
oppose it. If the dispensary is to be pre
served, it must bo cleaned. Its best
friends, such friends as Senator Raysor
and Senator Manning, agree in this.
These young men who at great per
sonal sacrifice are doing this work, who
are exposing themselves to threats from
persons who are or have been connected
with the business of buying and selling
liquor, at least ought to have the sym
pathy and the moral support of the law
abiding, the self-respecting, the Chris
tian men, the men who want their little
girls nnd boys to grow up in a country
where honesty and clean living prevail.
Sometimes we doubt if it pays for
men to do as Christensen and Lyon are
doing. We have seen more than one
good man throw away services which
cost him years of his life and thousands
of dollars only to be misjudged, miscon
strued and blamed and abused by the
people for whose benefit his endeavors
were freely given. Sometimes you
who read this wonder why your neigh
bor who is an earnest, honorable and
uncommonly intelligent man does not
offer for the legislature. "He is self
ish," you say, "his heart is set on mak
ing money, and he is too much wrapped (
up in himself to mingle with the people
and serve them." Perhaps that man
reflects that his efforts would not be ap
preciated. Perhaps he understands that
unless he swallowed his convictions of
right and joined in the clamor for some
passing political hobby in which he
could not believe, he would be hooted
at and insulted. We have known men
here in this county of the highest char
acter and among the foremost in brains,
leaders in their churches and leaders in
their businesses and professions, who
would not go to a county convention
because they did not care to undergo
the extreme discomfort of speaking
their opinions against majorities not in
clined to yield them a respectful hear
Your strong, clear-headed, educated
man can generally take care of himself
outside of politics. It has few rewards
for him. He can always, under any
conditions, whether tho trusts rule,
whether the money power is oppressing
or not, earn a living and laugh in his
sleeve at the crowd howling and whoop
ing for some flashy politician loaded
with a stock of stale anecdotes, mis
shaped and half-baked ideas. Yet these
are the men needed in public life, these
are the men able and willing to help the
poor and the struggling, these are the
men who can put into legislation the
same force and energy and power to
achieVe results that lift them to the
highest places in professional nnd in
business circles. There are mighty few
really leading thinkers pf this. State
who could be elected to public office,
and still fewer who would accept it un
der existing conditions. Even our nine
congressmen will not average with the
men of tho first class in ability in South
Carolina; though one of them is one of
the ablest of the senators.
Now and then a promising man,
moved by one motive or another, per
haps it may be honorablo ambition for
political position, does go into public
life and give all that is in him to tho
service of the people. Of such type we
honestly and sincerely believe are Neils
Christensen of Beaufort and Fraser
Lyon of Abbeville. They ought to
have the encouragement of the men
who love their State, and we wish that
every man who reads this article would
write to them, even if the letters or
postal cards bore no other words than
"Well done, we are with you!" and the
signatures of the writers. ?

I WISE AND OTHERWISE. <|
Grasp not at the shadows
In thy lonely sorrow;
' Gather up the sunshine
For the coming morrow.
Louder chirps the cricket
When the daylight fadeth;

I Sweeter smell the roses

I And the bee for clover

? Olive M. Durlin.
The Roads of Laurens County or the
One day through the primeval wood,
A calf walkt home, as good calves
But made a trail all bent askew,
A crooked trail, as all calves do.
Since then two hundred years have fled,
And, I infer, the calf is dead.
But still he left behind his trail,
And thereby hangs a moral tale.
The trail was taken up next day
By a lone dog tiiat passed that way,
And then the wise bell-wether sheep
Pursued the trail o'er vale and steep
And drew the flock behind him, too,
As good bell-wethers always do.
And from that day, o'er hill and glade,
Through those old woods a path was
And ninny men wound in and out.
And turned and dodged and bent about,
And uttered words of righteous wrath
Because 'twas such a crooked path:
But still they followed?do not laugh?
The first migration of the calf,
And through this winding woodway
Because he wabbled when he walkt.
This forest path became a lane,
That bent and turned and turned again;
This crooked lane became a road,.
Where many a poor horse, with his
Toiled on beneath the burning sun,
And traveled some three miles in one.
And thus a century and a half
They trod the footsteps of that calf.
The years passed on swiftness fleet,
The road became a village street,
And this, before the men were aware,
A city's crowded thoroughfare,
And soon the central street was this
Of a renowned metropolis.
And men two centuries and a half
Trod in the footsteps of that calf;
Each day a hundred thousand rout
Followed the zigzag calf about;
And o'er this crooked journey went
The traffic of a continent.
A hundred thousand men were led
By a calf near three centuries dead,
They followed still his crooked way
And lost one hundred years a day;
I For thus such reverence is lent
To well-established precedent.
A moral lesson this might teach
Were I ordained and called to preach,
For men and prone to go it blind
Along the calf-paths of the mind,
And work away from sun to sun
And do what other men have done.
They follow in the beaten track,
And out and in, and forth and back,
^And still their devious course pursue,
To keep the path that others do.
But how the wise wood-gods must
Who saw the first primeval calf;
And many things this tale might teach
But I am not ordained to preach.
