The predatory methods of the Char
lotte Observer are beginning to spread
alarm throughout the up-country of
South Carolina, and the Laurens Ad
vertiser, which would take no risks,
thus fortifies the city of Laurens: "He
fore the Charlotte Observer claims him
we beg to state that Mayor Clarence
M. Babb was not born in North Caro
lina." The Advertiser has already sot
up the bokl claim that Laui ns pos
sesses a better mayor than either New
berry or Greenwood, and that is a prop
osition that remains to be threshed out.
Surely the Advertiser would not insinu
ate that the mayors of Newberry and
Greenwood were born in North Caro
lina? That would be a terrific assault,
ami, besides, the mayor of Newberry
was born in Laurens, and Laurons for
merly supplied Greenwood with mayors.

Mr. McGownn, th<' Washington eor

in a recent article about the South Car
olina Congressmen lias some compli
mentary references to lion. Joseph T.
Johnson, of the Fourth district. Mr.
Johnson is a native of Laurens, in
whom all his fellows justly feel a
pride. Following is the comment:
Mr. Johnson, as the representative
of the 4th district, spent much of his
time since Christmas in the prepara
tion of the public buildings bill, vvh :h
was passed oil (lie last day of the
session, carrying with it an appropria- j
lion of nhout $25,000,000. Ho secured

that after all the president might veto

passed, and it is still thought that such
might have been the case hut for t he
sudden passage of the latter hill in the
