company with her husband and fath

to the penitentiary for the purpose
of ld< tltlfying the negro.
Solicitor Kill and Sheriff White of

Sheriff White aske<| her to point out

The negro when brought Uoro for

Solicitor Albert L\ Hill announced
this afternoon before returning to

the Spartanburg criminal court called

until the third Monday In1 September,

Congressman Johnson on Lobbying,
13d I tor The Advertiser:
President Woodrow Wilson render
ed a distinct public service when he
made the statement that there was
an insidious lobby in Washington.
Some newspapers and some public
men pretended to see in tho Presi
dent's statement a reflection on tho
Senate, as the Tariff 1 >i 11 was then
in the Senate. An investigation was
ordered. It did not take long to lo
cate several lobbies. It was soon de
veloped that the sugar producers had
spent eight hundred thousand dollars
in the last lew years. What do you
think of a gentleman getting a salary
of ten thousand dollars a year with
"an allowance" of one thousand dol
lars a month to "entertain"? The
justification for lobbyists is that they
are "experts" and are well Informed
and they are here to give Congress
"information". If that is their busi
ness they should give the Information
openly and publicly and go back home.
fOmmlneill lawyers come here to ar
gue cases before the Supremo Court
of the Pnitcd States: but they argue
the cases in public ami in the hear
ing of the other side. When the cases
are argued they go home. They do
not lie around Washington and "en
tertain" the Judgas. Exports who
come heir to inform Congress should
do It openly and then go home. Husi
ness people w ho spend large sums of
money to hire smooth, plausible fel
lows to remain here and entertain are
either seeking favors they know they
are not entitled to or they are con
scious that they already are enjoying
privileges that ought to he taken away.
The average man does not ask for
special favors. The average man de
pends on his chosen representative to
do what is right. How important It
is that we who are elected as repre
sentatives should represent the mass
es loyally, faithfully, righteously. I
am glad President Wilson has direct
ed attention to lobbying.
