sake of argument and "'ith absolute

the views of our fellow tarpayers in
Clinton as regards TAurens voters, we
tehall give a little space to a few re
marks on the election.
In the fircit place, Laureus -does not
need to make an orplanatida of its
vote. 'The Advertiser saw fit to en
dlorse both project~s before the election,
but some 122 free and untrammelled
Laurens democrats refused to take or
dlersc from its and voted as their eon
seig'ncos no doubt dictated against the
Mubsgrove project. It is a plausible
theory at least that they thought that
undinished jobs abould be completed
or 'rprovided for before new ones are
begun. It is posalible that these 123
yeo>men were influenced in their bal
lots by baso motives of pcrejudie
against Clinton. We have no doutbt
but' that, in theit p-asent fracvo 'a
mind our Clinton friends believe that
the whole outfit voted on these
grounds. We won't say that they
didn't, 'but knowing a fow of them and
what they have done for Clinton we

Tbe Chronicle, before drwineg a
comparison between the Musgrove and

i~hat considerations of self-interest
would have prompted us in Iau

be observed, gives Owings and Gray
