One great objection to the new
schedule on the C. & W. C. railroad
1b that we-do not get the papers of
our afternoon contemporaries of
Greenville and Spartanburg as early
as before. "Believe me, boys" It's a
A movement is on foot, to have the
early morning freight from the direc
tion of Augusta take on passengers be
tween Waterloo and Ivuirens. If this'
were done. It would go far towards
making bearable the present .sched
ules from that direction. Though it
would require passengers to leave
their homes rather early, doubtless
many of them would like to take ad
vantage of a change like this.

Gov. Blease must have tickled him
self lit .he side and hee-hawed several
days ago after giving instructions that
the -lid" bo put on tight at the Isle
o! Palms duirng the meeting of the S.
C. PreSS Association. Of course that
was very small on tho part of the
governor, though not out of keeping
with his past performances, but the
funny part about It,Is that he will
not. Inconvenience the "editors" so
much as he thinks. There was a time
when the press association meetings
were quite lively affairs, but that is
largely a thing of the past as now the
publishers go mostly for business and
profit. Those that do go expecting to
t;.k" a little "nip" now and then, car
ry "their" along with them, so as a
matter of fact, the governor, wasn't
fo smart after all.
WILL BE ALLOWED TO VOTE.
It will be welcome news to a large
number of those citizens In Dials and
Scuflletown township who at first
thought that they would be deprived of
the right of voting in the new county
election to know that Chairman Can
non, of the board of election commis
sioners, has ordered boxes placed at
the Gray Court, Power Shop and Lang
ston Church precincts. At first it was
thought that a great many vitally In
terested citizens who lived in the pro
posed new county area, but whose vot
ing places were out of the new coun
ty lines, would not be allowed to vote.
Though Mr. Cannon was advised by the
assistant attorney general that these
citizens could not vote in the ap
proaching election, he has looked into
the law himself and decided that it
would be denying them the constitu
tion right of sufferage to deprive them
of a voice in this matter which Is so
important to them.
CARRY DEBT WITH THEM.
It seems that there are still a great
many people In the proposed new
county area who believe that, by leav
ing Spartanburg and Laurens coun
ties, -they get rid of the responsibility
for the debts already incurred by these
counties. iNothlng is further from the
truth. Every bit of land cut off from
f?partanburg and I/aurens counties
must and will carry with it its share of
tho debts owed by those two counties.
This matter should be made plain to
every voter who Is not already aware
of It. A portion of the debt of each
old county goes with the new county.
Mr. B. Brooks Ohlldress, accom
panied by bis father, Mr. W. P. Chil

married to Miss Lucllc Trotter, sister
