'h( possibility of freiunt t'hianges
inl administration is conlsider-e4d one of
the most d(sirable fIatures inl our re
publican foriml of govern ment. Of
ficials who stay inl office too long are
sometime wont to ;,t in ruts Oiut
of which they are unable to pull them
selves and often lose sight of the fact
that they are servants rather than
bos0ses of the lpeople. If for 110 other
reason tinan to reap the advantages
that a change may brinlg about the
election of almost an enltirely new
administration for this city yesterday
was a good thing.
To our mind one of the greatest
fauilts of the present and ipast ad
ministrations has been the failure to
take the Iople into confidence and
to work out (ol letil t prob

of the city affairs have been practical

Reply to Mr. 1ray.
Editor of The Advertiser:
From the introduction of an article
by '.Mr. Jonas Gray of Spartanburg In
a recent issiue of the Advertiser, one
expected a discussion of the merits of
the poll and road tax. lowever, the
article concentrated its forces upon
the duplicity of our Representatives in
the lower house; the i ncoilpctelcy
and the hidden facts of our county of
fleers: the relative amount of taxes
paid by him; and a note of warning.
This article, therefore. will not dis
cuss the wisdom oi.such taxes; will,
in passing, appreciate the motive that
prompted such a warning: will colt
gratulate the gentleian for hi.-; hav
ing such MIrift and energy with which
to acmiuliate such an amount of tax
alue proprty; and will discuss, brief
ly, the other ihasi rses of above men
To have at citizen and representative
of another county tll is cf the dema
goguiery of our' representatives i hu
mtinli.iig to our electorate. '\ould
11h.!t our rotinrty r old(1 product. and
our peopl eIlet such rmen as our w rit
(r' desir'e. Yet. perhaps, with.I due
vigilance. thei people Of Laurens 'oun
ty will not 'he done an injury. The
oircesntatives of other counties lav:
diuties nougl to their own constitu
ency without having to look after the
affairs of local character in alirents
cou ntI y. Some mien, however, lire en
lbwed with stch a feeling for till
maisis of tire pleolel that suth. a task
of looking af;er local matters in oth
r's con rtius becomes a pleasure..\l en
of this type, are litted to sit in ile halls
A " ir National A sseibly where suich
inot'r it will be iiore highly appreciat
The opening 111) of tile incompetency
and tlt, challenging of the hidden
facts of the county ollicials is also hu
minliating. If the writer of tlhe article
had siected the county oflicers, as he
attempted to do that of the iagis
trate and the members of the equaliz
irig board in Youngs township, per
hails we would have more eflicient of
flers in the county. Thierefore if the
writer of said article does not aspire
for congress, we suggest that a group
of our citizens approach him and sug
gest that he come over into this coun
ty ani help 'lean up the vile situa
tion. ""ome over into Macedlonia and
help rus:," we cry.
Aid] meanwhile let the representa
live frorm Spairtanhburg look mor'
closely after the road situation in his
own county. So far as we know, no
lart of Laurens county has wished to
joln Greenville county because of outr
roads. If he will devote more of his
energy to his own people perhaps
tlhere will be no more unrest in the
eo unty. Let him first remove the beam
out of his own eye and then he cn
see tinore clearly the Ilote in his neigh
Sintc(e when have the oflicers of this
county been mailing out statellien 3 to
citizens of another county as to the
Inancial doings of the county? In
