At its annual meeting in Columbia

who has been at the head of the so

The hospitality displayed by the
people of Columbia, especially the
members of the I'ress In the city, the
Chamber of Commerce, the street car
company and others who were always
on the alert to take care of the "conn
try editors." was as expected of a
I city with the reputation of our ciipl
\ tal. It has always shown the spirit
j of the hosts of the old South and on
this occasion did it well come up to
j and eclipse its former reputation.

Unless Gov. Blease had some other
j motive than that of tempering mercy
'? with justice. Wo can see no reason for
his questioning the integrity of So
I llcitor Otts in the Hasty pardon mat
ter. It seems to have been quite a
disappointment to the Governor when
Solicitor Otts changed his mind and
declared his intention. If the witness
es could be found. *o push ttie mat
ter further, if Gov, Blease thought
I that he was doing the proper thing
in pardoning Hasty and was really
conscientious in his action In Issuing
the pardon, it looks to us as if he
, would let the matter rest, as far as he
' was concerned, after he had freed
j him. Aftep he had done his duty in
the matter It was no concern of his
whether Solicitor Otts decided to try
the other indictment or not. If Mr.
Otts went back on his word it was no
concern of the Governor's, ISach suc
ceeding act of this kind, on the part
of the Governor, makes us tinner In
the belief that a kind ot association of
criminals is being formed, to turn the
balance in the next campaign.

In bis address of welcome to Hi ?
Pressmen, President Herbert,, of the
Chamber of Commerce, asked thai
when the newspaper men returned to
, their homes, they carry only one re
quest with them and that was to tell
the people of their districts of the
growth and advantages of Columbia.
While the growth of the city can be
fairly and accurately judged from the
population statistics, still to grasp the
real bigness of Columbia, >ne needs
to take a real tour of the long and
busy streets and the suburbs. The past
growth of Columbia is not looked upon
with jealousy by the other growing
cities of the state, for they would
have their capital worthy of South
Carolina. It is. instead, we believe,
the hope of all good South Carolinians
that Columbia shall be equal in pros
perity ami dignity with others of her
sister capitals, and while each and
every one of our cities looks forward
? to the time when they will be great
centers of trade and manufacture
themselves, it can hardly be said that
their desire Is not that Columbia
should prosper likewise.
It was therefore with pleasure that
the Pressmen noted the growth of their
capital ami hoped that in the future
her prosperity might be even more
marked. Columbia has an advantage
over all other cities of South Caro
lina with one possible exception. It
can hardly bo said, though, not wit h
standing hoi present size, that she has
taken advantage of her central loca
tion, her many railroads and her nat
ural prestige as the capital of the
state, to grow like she should have.
The merchants and business men have
been just fairly wide awake, but the
aggrosslvi nesa, which characterizes
many men of our southern cities, is
not as noticeable in Columbia as It
should be. Especially is this true of
the wholesale trade, in which Colum
bia should he a leader.
We note that an advertising fund is
being raised to Induce people to come
to the city. Columbia is In partially
the position of Laurens; she does not
need to advertise for people to come
into her city, but It needs to do
something for Itself and the people
will come of their own accord.
