J. Girvin Peters. 'Chief of the Of
fice of State Cooperation in the Fed
eral Forest Service, made an address
before the state. legislature last 'week
in support of the bill for legal protec
tion of the state's timber resources.
The national -government will meet
the state governments in providing for
protection against forest fires and of
fers its assistance in framing laws
against the wilful destruction of the
tinher resources. Mr. Peters made
'the following significant statement:
"Lumbering is the second most im
Ilortant industry in South Carolina.
The value of its products is not less
than $15,000,000 annuially. Of this
sum11, about. $:1,000,000 represents the
value of the timber before it is en

right ste) being 'taken to correct
them? There is a noticeable stack
ness in the conduct of the courts
which should be remedied before more
circuits are added. Too often the
time of the circuit courts are taken
lip with minor cases which should be
handled in the lower courts and even
in the more important casca much time
is wasted by useless arguments of
counsel and repetition of questions in
cross exunination. It has been esti
mated that it costs fifty cents a min
ute to run .the circuit court itn some
counties and when such expensive ma
chinery is in action results should be
produced without loss of time. If the
present methods in the conduct of the
courts are to continue it is qluite pos
sible that we will soon need several
additional circuits to the 13th. It does
seem that some steps should be tak
en to make court procedure more ex
peditious before we add more cir
cults or very soon we will be un'bear
ably burdened with court expenses.
Next week 'we have with us a carn
ival, this in spite of the protests of
the general public of this city. The
reputation of carnival companies is
not good, to say the least, but it is
quite 'possible to have one free of
gambling and immorality. The ad
vance agent of the company coming
to ILaurens has brought recommenda
tions tending to show that it is out of
the ordinary run anu has not the ob
jectionable features of others. .ludg
mtit will have to be withheld, in so
far as the moral effect goes, until It is
seen in operation. In case the shows
are clean and moral, the company 'has
as much right here as any other class
of anusoment, but if there is the
least tendency to transgress the lyt.
or violate the senses of dectege$ po_
lice power should nte e and a stop
put to the whole ' usiness. In case
the officer i u the law fail in their
dluty, tlen the citizens themselves
shu 1( take legal steps to abate it.
