FOR SPARTANBURG P.O.
Former Luurens Comity Man Geta
Postofflce at Spartanburg after
Warm Contest Between Others.
?Stiartanburg, April 24.?Congress
man Joseph T. Johnson, who returned
to Spartanburg from Washington yes
terday, announced after listening pa
tiently in his law ofllco for sovoral
hours to tho claims of various candi
dates for tho postmastorship of this
olty, as presented by their friends, that
ho had decided to recommend Plcrro
11 Plko, city editor of Tho Herald,
and until recently Mr. Johnson's secre
tary, for appointment to the position.
Tho announcement was as much of n
surprise to Mr. Fiko as to anybody
olso, as ho had not solicited tho honor
and had not been mentioned In connec
tion with the postmnstershlp.
Mr. Johnson's decision whb receiv
ed with general satisfaction, how
over, and will doubtless end what
ever of rancor may hnve entered tho
contest for tho place.
Mr. Pike has been engaged In
nowspaper work in Spartanburg for
12 years, and Is acquainted, perhaps,
with mumi' people in tho city than any
other Minn, Ills ni|fi?Mlng courtesy
and fair dealing bftVC won for blm the
QBteern of,all who know him. II?
^was connected with The Herald for
ton years before he accepto dtho po
sotlon of secretary to Mr. Johnson,
and returned to this newspaper only
last Monday, giving up his desirable
OOOlip?ttQn 1,1 Washington in order
thul-i'/T ittlghl I'Osltlfl !n Bimrlanburg,
hl? home town.
Native of I,aureus County.
Mr. Plko is almost 10 yenrs old. lie
was Dorn In I.aurens county nnd at
tended Wofford college. Ho has spent
most of Iiis life in Spartanburg and is
familiar with the needs of tho city.
That, ho will make one of tho most
efilolont postmasters that Spartanburg
has over had Is confidently predicted
bty those who SHOW him.
W. II. Dllllngham, W. P. Young,
aaslstant postmaster. .1. II. Carlisle,
Kbor Allen and It. .1. (iantt were
among those prominently niontloned
as candidates for the postmastershlp,
after Postmaster W. M. Floyd with
drew from the contest. Messrs. 1)11
llngham and Young were the strong
est oandidatOS. .Mr. Johnson at hrst
recommended -Mr. Dllllngham for the
place, at the sumo time promising Mr.
Young an honorable and lucrative po
sition in the postal service from
which ho would have an opportunity
to advance t<? a pined even higher
than the Spartanburg postmastershlp.
Factional feeling between the friends
of Messrs, Dllllngham and Young ran
so high, however, that Mr. Dllllngham
released Mr. Johnson from his prom*
. iso to buvo him from embarrassment
Mr. Johnson then decided to com?
to Spartanburg in person, sound the
Sentiment of tin- Olty, and take such
EtOtlon in tho matter as seemed most
advisable. The selection of Mr. Flke
was the outcome.
The appointment will bo for a four*
yeur term. Mr. Floyd's term will ex
pire within a few flays, but It Is
hardly likely that President Wilson
will immediately appoint Mr. Pike.
Tho president, Mr. Johnson said, has
beertng moving slowly In many of hlfl
appointments. The COUrSG of proce
dure Is for the president tr> make the
appointment, after which . is sent to
tho senate for confirmation. The
Spartanburg postmastershlp pays $3,
100 a year.
Mr. Johnson has post masterships to
till at Woodruff, Landrmn and Inman.
In this county; JoneSVlllo, In Colon
county, and I.aurens, In I.aurens
county. Mr. Johnson said he proposed
to visit these towns and study (lie sit
uation and then recommend ofr ap
pointment such men as he deemed most
desirable for the positions. He said
thnt some of his appointees mlghl not
be the men whom the people wanted,
but they would be the men who he
Mr. Fike was the recipient of con
gratulations from hundreds of per
sons yesterday after the news of Mr.
Johnson's decision had been made
known. The news spread so quickly
?hat he even received a telegram of
' ongratulatlons from a Spartanburg
?nslness man in New York, though ho
was puzzled to know how the an
nouncement had reached New York.
Coughs and Consumption.
Coughs and colds, when neglected,
always lead to serious trouble of tho
lungs. The wisest thing to do when
you have a cold that troubles you Is
to get a bottle of Dr. King's New Dis
covery. You will get rollof from tho
first dose, and finally tho cough will
disappear. O. H. Hrown, of MuscadlneJ?
Ala., writes: "My wife was down In
bed with an obstinate cough, and
?olds. Price 50c and $1.00. Recom

Washington, April 21.?When Presi
dent Wilson sent tho nomination of
Charles A. Woods of .Marion, associate
justice of the South Carolina supreme
court, to the senate this afternoon for
confirmation as the successor to Nath
an (Joff, judge of the Fourth United
States circuit court, there was gen
eral satisfaction expressed here not
only by South Carolinians who know
Justice- Woods, but by others who
know p( his high standing and legal
Of tho members of tho South Caro
line delegation in congress who have
spoken for Justice Woods there was
but one opinion?that the president
could not possibly have made a better
or more satisfactory appointment.
They have worked for him from tho
start and never ceased to believe that
he WOuld1 receive the Indorsement ot
President Wilson, as tho matter ter
minated today, when his nomination
was made public.
Senators Smith and Tlllmaft said
there was little to make public re
garding the matter, Kineo Justice
Woods was so well and favorably
known that anything they might add
would be unnecessary.
It Is agreed that the president has
made an excellent appointment.
