8 STATE PRESS COMMENT. 8
The Newberry Obesrver and the
Newberry Herald and News agree on
advising against spelling Christmas
Xmas.-Newberry Herald & News.
One Thomas -i. Pe'ples was elect
ed last year as attorney general of
the state of South 'Carolina, as we
thought, to represent the people of
the state; but, his conduct raises the
question as to whomi he does really
represent. An explanation from him
is in order. Very recently lhe has
declined to represent the state in dis
barient proceedings in the supreme
court against a certain lawyer, for
which he gives very childish excuses.
l like manner, he declined to repre
sent the comptroller' general in a suit
against the state, in which the said
comptroller general is defendant, as
the agent of the state. Such things
read queer down this way, and the
people want to know If lur. Peeples
represents the state or not."--Edge
VERY UNFORTUN ATE.
Mr. George L. Pitts has resigned
as superintendent of education of
Laurens county. Publicly he has
given no reasons for his action. Pri
vately he is said to have stated that
he resigned because he could not live
on the very small salary the office
pays. The office, we understand, pays
only $700 a year, a fact which is not
very creditable to Laurens county.
When Congressman Frank Lever
sp1ok1e in Green'ille some time back
lie touched upon the steady ..drift of
people from' the country to the cities
and towns. This, he declared to be
one of the alarming signs of the
times for, as ho said, the prosperity
of the nation depends upon :the pros
perity of our country people. With
tile best farmers going to the cities
and towns a period of stagnation will
sooner or later come.
MIr. Lever, in his address.- stated
that le did not 1)1a10 the country peo
ple for leaving the farm and going to
the city so long as conditions remaIn
ed as they are now. lie referred to
the splend'icd schools in the city,
where the farmer's sons and daugh
ters could have every advantage, if
their father moved to town. in the
citie; only the very hest teachers are
hired for sulperintenbdent s of tihe work.
"I low al'out the counties?" he asked.
''l'e average sujpei'lntendent of a ci
ty school gets not less than $1,000.
The superintendent of county educa
tion usually gets from $700 to $900
and his work is far greater than the
superintendent of the city schools.
'T'he school problem was only one of
several mentioned by Mr. Lever in his
address but it was one of the most
important and his rema rks were so
applicable in this conrection that we
desired to review them.
'i'ho people of Laurens county
ought to raise the salary of their
