Major llenipliin's Change.
To Journalism all over the couth
the announcement from Richmond,
Va., that Major .1. C. Ilemphlll is
going to leave the Charleston News
and Courier to accept the editorship
of the Richmond-Times Dispatch,
Is distinctly a surprise. Since the
tragic death of tin- lamented Francis
D. Dawson the News and Courier and
Major .1. C. Ilemphlll have been syn
onymous. In fact, there has, perhaps,
never been a man In southern journ
alism more inseperably connected
with his paper, unless it was Cnpt.
Dawson, than has been Major Ilemp
hlll with the News and Courier; and
few men have hud longer connection
with any one newspaper than he has
with that one.
Major Ilemphlll has spent the great
er number of years of his life in the
service of the News and Courier, and
in tiny ? yours has done a world of
work for Charleston, and in making
tin; paper what it is today. His con
servatism, stability and reliability
were marks of the man, even in those j
days when be was a member of the
reportorJal staff of the News and I
Courier From one who knows him,
it can be said with an unusual amount
of sincerity thai the Times-Dispatch, I
, and Richmond are gaining a great deal
and Charleston will be :i heavy loser,
when Major llcmphill leaves the News

"As to the dispensaries in the six
counties which" voted in the sale of
liquor, 1 desire to renew my recom
mendation made in my annual mes
sage to the general assembly in 190S,
to wit. "That not more than one coun
ty dispensnnry be allowed in any coun
ty widere liquor is allowed to be sold,
except in those counties where there
are cities with a population cxceed-|
ing twenty-live thousand." This is
In the Interest of temperance. I (irm
ly believe thai If another election is
held In those six counties in the com
ing year most of them will vote the
sale of liquor out. I ask your earnest
consideration of the question of pro
viding for another election in those
six counties in the near future.
"In my annual message to the gen
eral assembly in 1908, I used these
words. "Some years ago. when the
purchasing value of a dollar was more
than It is at this time, the salaries of
our state ofllcers and judges of the
supreme court and circuit courts were
reduced. I desire to ask if the time
lias not come when these salaries
should be raised again and your ollic
ers paid a salary commensurate with
the work they are required to do?"

your attention and to ask i's serious
consideration, our state is prosper
ous and the work ol each of the odi

We are about through with stock taking for the year 1909 and find lots of odds and ends left which
we are going to close out at a sacrifice. This sale is not gotten up to make money, on the other hand
we lose money. But we prefer to put the money we get for these goods into something else. Take our
word. If you want anything in our line call at once. This is simply a sale of what we have on hand
after stock taking.
Buy White Goods, Underclothes, Ginghams and Percales at way under real
value. We have just received big shipments of these goods that were bought
before the price went up. Come early and get the benefit of the best Bargains.
