The meeting of the Chamber of
Commerce next Monday night should
be attended by all those who have an
inerest in the welfare of the city. If
not a member of that estimable or
ganization, -why not join and. help in
its good work?
IDue regard for the well-being of
both races should prompt a sane and
sober consideration of the racial con
Ilicts that are coming to be all too
common in the country, both North
and South. Too much attention is be
ing given to radical leaders among
both races for the best interest of all
The campaign to raise money for a
suitable memorial for the dead heroes
of the World War is one which should
meet awith a willing response from all
of the pelde. The sacrifices of those
who came out of the conflict alive
were enough to warrant an enduring
monument, but a memorial even such
as the State of South Carolina propos
es to erect cannot take the place of
the livesgiven up in the cause of
justice avgd right.
The speech of Sen. N. B. Dial on the
economic situation In the United
States should meet with the approval
of those who wish to see a return to
normal Omes again. Contests be
tween er )loyces and employers are
things to; be expected in the natural
course of events, and should be 'set
tied witlhut the governmental inter
.vention except for the maintenance of
justice and order. The government is
going too far afield in trying to adjust
every squabble between various class
es of citizens and should give its at
tention to broadser principles.

The Naughty Wife.
"The "Naughty Wife" as played at
t(he Opera House Monday evening -to
a small audience, proved a very de
lightful play to those who were not
exi)ecting a crude form of amusement
and who listened closely to the lines.
The audience as a whole was some
what listless and failed to enter in
to the spirit of the play. The "Naughty
Wife" was not as "naughty" as the
name of the play would imply 'but on
the 'contrary was a clean and spark
ling comedy throughout. There 'vere
risque situations but they ivere treat
ed in such a deft manner as to make
them more rediculous than sugges
tive. To the credit of the company
it should be said that it made the best
of limited stage capacity and appeared
to render its best service under dis
