We bolleVQ that The Advertiser ex
presses the sentiment of the citizens
of Lau renn when it says that the
greatest cause for rejoicing ovor tho
outcome of the new county election
was a feeling that even to the utter
most hounds of the county the people
still showed the old ties of affection
and love for the county and county
seat. It can safely bo said, we be
lieve, that, In deciding how to vote
at this critical time, many decisions
vi r., made on sentiment alone with
out any regard for the material QU08
Uons at issue Relieving this as we
do, we leel that lltO citizens Of the
county-sent and the county as a whole
have a right to feel thankful thai they
nre so closely bound together and that
it will take even more than mere
monetary matters to break them

The announcement made in the edi
torial columns of The State several
days ago that Mr. W. W. Hall would
assume charge of the editorial col
umns of that paper In the absence of
Mr. W. E. Gonzales In Cuba was re
ceived in Laurons with peculiar pleas
ure and pride. Mr. Mall is a son
of I.aureus county, one who so iden
tified himself with its activities and
so endeared himself to its people dur
ing his earliest life that they have
never yet come to admit that he Is no
longer theirs. Mr. Hall is the son of
the late Col. Beufort Watts Hall, for a
long time editor of this paper. The
son followed In the steps of his father,
being editor of The Advertiser at dif
ferent Intervals for a number of years.
Under their charge the paper grew
in Influence and resources and at
tained to itH highest perfection. Mr.
Win. Watts Hal| is recognized as one
of the most capable, most fearless
and most broad-minded newspaper
men In the south. The friends of The
State feel no anxiety as to his ability
to conduct Its editorial page In a
manner befitting the great paper that
? ? ?
While no definite announcement has
been made since the Enorec new coun
ty election, the advocates of the new
county with Fountain Inn as the
county Heat let It be known some time
ago that they Intended to have an
election called In case Woodruff met
defeat. We do not know yet what
effect the overwhelming defeat of
Woodruff has had on the Fountain
Inn people, but we hope that they
have come to realize now before be
ginning a long and expensive contest
that the people of the affected terri
tories are not In favor of any change.
The Fountain Inn perple should not
allow themselves to be carried nway
by 'ha Idea thai the sentiment In favor
of the new county there caused ll?0
defeat of the Woodruff proposition.
While then- were possibly a few poo
pic who voted with this in view, the
number wan probably very small and
we believe would amount to little in
deciding tho contest as to the Foun
tain Inn new county The people of
the old county have expressed them
selves in no uncertain terms on pro
posed dismemberment and their sen
timent seema to be overwhelmingly
ngalnst It. Hut, as we said about
Woodruff, If the people of the upper
portion of Laurena county want *to
detach themselves from the county
?cat and turn to Fountain Inn, we will
jray It is their right to decide and we
Will wish them well, 'hit, we do not
believe they want to leave us and we
hope that another election Will not
be forced upon us. .
