lIiECTING CITY EMIPLOYEES
The Advertiser, as usual, could of
fer many suggestions to the incoming
city council but it will refrain Just
now except to refer to one matter of
at least reasonable inuportance, viz.,
the method of electing city elimployces.
The policy hitherto followed by pre
vious administrations has been to
elect city emiployees limediately after
being sworn in at the first meeting of
their a(m1inistration. Olicers of all
kilnds have been filled on the spur of
tle mUoment without an opportunity
being had of considering the appli
canis or without the public having an
oliportunity to express any object ion it
n'iight have to the titness of any appli
cant to fill the position he is offering
for. The defects of such a policy are
evident 111)011 its face.
It oCcurs to us that the first thing
in regard to city employees that the
Council should determine is whethei
0r not he same positions now plovided
by the city are to bc retained and then
whether or not the salaries are to re
main the same. After these things art
deterinied, then d'i. notice should h(
given as to what offices are to bc
filled and the salaries attached to each
Applications shouli be required to h
filed for a reasonable length of in(
before tile election so that the pub
lic may know who is offering am
what they are offering for, and further
so that the applicants may know ih
advance how mu1tich they may expec
as remuneration. An added advantage
of course. 'would 'be that the city Inigh
have the selection of many worthy a:)

To Cure a Cold in One Day
(OX SEES VICTORY ti
COMING AS REWARI) M
Forner Nominee Says Democrats Sure
to Win If They Remnini True. Prais.
es Wilsonm in Both Speeches. e(
The State, Friday. 01
Before an audience that packed the
floor of the hall of the house of rep- *
resentatives to the walls, that filled $
the gallery and overflowed into the
aisles and windows, James M. Cox,
Democratic nominee for president in
the last election, last night called n
upon his fellow Democrats to remain t
true to their .rinciples, to follow the b
straight path, to refrain from ten- o
porization, promising them that as a
rersard for such a policy "we will wi d
as surely as the coining of the day."
The ;ight that met the eyes of form- s1
er Governor Cox when he mounted the 1
speaker's stand at the house of repre
sentatives was a most inspiring one.
In the flag hedecked hall, from the
walls of which looked down the 11Or- \1
traits of many of the distinguished 1)
sons of South Carolina, had assem- 13
bled an audience that must have re
minded the speaker of the stirring o
daYs of his campaign-with one strik- ti
ing exception. Last night everybody -
in the reach of his voice was a friend
to Jimmie Cox, gave him an ovation tl
when he entered, cheered his elo- tl
fuent periods, yelled like mad when U
lie mentioned Woodrow Wilson and
gave hi1mu1 an attentive and sympathetic 1
heari ng-no inan on a political cain
paignt ever had so kindly an audience
-an audience so lacking in hostile
elements. And the distinguished visi
tor sensed it and responded warmly A
to it--and quit. speaking, not when he
had finished but a striking clock re
minded him that the hour was late.
In both his public addresses last
night Governor Cox paid glowing f
tiibutes to services which Woodrow(
Wilson has rendered his country.
"The principles of Woodrw Wilson Il
are our treasured heritage," lie said
at the theatre, "and I shall contend
for them as long as I have life. Wil
son has contributed as much to our
country as has Thomas Jefferson or
Andrew Jackson, and we all hoge he
shall live to see the vindication of his
position." In his speech at the State I
House he referred to him as "that
constructive statesman." His refer
ences to Mr. Wilson iwere greeted with
outbursts of applause.
Mr. Cox proved himself a most de
lightful speaker. His voice was
smooth and pleasant; his enunciation I1
clear and distinct and while lie would 'e
slur a bit on the pronounciation of
"Carolina," his audience forgave him
gladly and let it pass. He made fewi
gestures but drove home his points
with telling illustrations and proved
himself a master of sarcasm when
sarcasm was the instrument needed. i
The guest was presented to the au-|
dience by J. B. Atkinson, speaker of
the house, who introduced him as "the
militant leader of Democracy in Ami'
'ica." Speaker Atkinson said he toolki
pleastire in presenting hini to a gen- i
ci'al assembly in nyhich thei'e was not i
a single ir "mber of' the opposition c
Mr'. Cox .his introduction said, "I
standi heie in gi'eat awe sui'roundled
by -ioi'traits of men of your historic
past. I count it an 1honor1 and a great
privilege to addriess this company."
In spleaking of the relationship be
tween South Carolina and Ohio he re- t
ferr'ed to the early settler's in the twvo C
states andl told of the fi'iendships
wvhich hiad beeni built upi durijing the
great wvar. -le ipaid a tribute to the t
six sons of Governor' Manning who had
entei'ed 'the service, and spoke of the
deeds-of the boys from this state.
In speaking of the pr'ogr'ess each
'genei'ation makes over' that of the for- e
imier, Mr. Cox urged that the governor
make such r'ecommendations as experi
ence has suggested to simplify gov
ernment as much as possible; to (10 f
away with surplus oflices and1( to in
crease eficiency of service. lle told
of haviing studied tihe replorts Issued v
by the departments of this state and I
saidl the expense of government per
capita in South Carolina was among
the los"est in -the Union.a
"I notice that your state is essen
tially an agricultu-ral state. 1 moo am e
a far'mer-not for political but for
fractical p)urposes. I want to speoak
of your agi'icultural opportunity." HeI b~
then str'essed the necessity for rais- g
,Ing more live stock; for diversification
of crops andl for generous appropria- Jy
t'rons t:L.be a'gricultural colleges.- He
v'.'OaLt u t tile state would be- a
come wealthy in a few years as a re- at
