'WHERE ARE WE AT?"
This is a timely questiozi just now.
The political situation in South Caro
lina at this time is highly interesting
and Immensely amusing. Reform is a
great thing, and the number of leading
and original reformers is likely to in
crease. Here is the Greenville News
claiming to have been one of the origi
nil and simon pure Reformers away
back yonder, and really thinks that it
can now get down off the fence and
work itself into the great and glorious
movement. Here, too, is the State and
the Spartanburg Herald actually chant
ing the glories of reform and proclaim
ing the virtues and abilities of certain
leaders of Reform for the Governor
ship. And the News and Courier is
faintly and gradually getting over t here
too. Only that this happy state of
affairs could have been brought about
long ago, how sweetly it would have
been for brethren to have dwelt to
getber'in peace. But we may be happy
yet, you bet.
The-Herald and News is not just yet
ready to get down off the fence and
whoop up any body. We are just now
following Fagan Martin's advice to
As.we cannot give in detail the views
of our esteemed contemporaries, we
desire to take a somewhat general sur
vey of the field and see if we can find
just what we are really at, or where we
will be when we fall off the fence.
Last week, it will be remembered,
that we asked if Newberry was to fur
nish a candidate for Governor, and we
said we saw no reason why she should
not. Then right on the heels of that,
here comes the State newspaper in a
whole column editorial in the most
fulsome praise and the strongest kind
of an endorsement of our Newberry
man for Governor. We do not under
stand this, for it is known of all men
that Dr. Pope will not only not read
the State, but he will not touch or
hand!e it. But another strange thing
about this business is that while be
will bai nothing to do with the State
newspaper, he suffered himself to be
Interviewed by one of its correspond
ents, and announced his candidacy for
Governor in this interview. We pub
lish the intervi=w on our first page.
These truly be strange times. Then
we hear it whispered, too, that while
Dr. Pope would not violate his pledge
to have nothing to do with 'the State
newspaper, yet that he might know
what beautiful things it had said of
r- " him, he got a friend to read aloud t0
him this editorial endorsement in ques
tion, and we presume the interview
Now.The Herald and News is noted
for having a great deal of county pride.
We are always delighted to see New
berry men get there, whether they are
personally fond of us or. not. It has
been a long time since Newberry has
furnished a Governor. In fact we be
lieve the nearest she ever came to it
was when she furnished Maj. Frederick
Nance for-Lieuteriant Governor away
back in 1808. And she has not been
greedy in this particular. We have
had very few candidates during that
time for this position. It is getting
abaut our time to furnish the man.
We have plenty of them. Good re
- formers too. As we stated last week,
Dr. Pope has been a reformer from the
beginning and there is one thing you
can say to his credit, you generally
know where he is at. But The Herald
and News is not ready yet to get down
off thie fence. Then, too, we want the
man we tie to this year to ."git thar."
The State newspaper has not been sue
cessful in its advocacy of candidates in
this State during its lifetime, and we
are little afraid of, anything it takes
hold of politically being a success. So
we~will just wait awhile and watch.
Talking about Newberry reformers,
there is Railroad Commissioner Sligh.
He is one of your original reformers,
to'o, and a Newberry man. He has
been mentioned in connection with the
affice of Lieutenant Governor, with
Senator Timmerman forGovernor. Now
we object to this. Newberry will not
submit to. being placed second on the
ticket. Besides this Senator Timmier
man would preside with such dignity
and grace over the Senate that he should
be permitted to have that honor. Be
sides this, too, Mr. Sligh should not be
*expected to give up the arduous and
laborious duties of Railroad Commis
sioner for the easy place of Lieutenant
. Governor. If be is to be rotated, put
-him where he will be able to do some
thing for the movement. Reformers
are not hunting for easy plaecs. Espe
cially reform leaders. They want -po
sitions where they can serve the dear
people. Mind you, we ain't committed
yet. We are waiting and watebing.
But we are for a New berry man every
tinie. That is when we come down off
The Spartanburg Herald is whoop
ing up John Gary Evans. It thinks
he is the coming man. With the
Evans bill and the Palmetto flaskI
spread upon his banner, the Herald
thinks he will be invincible. He is
young and dashing, and no doubt im
agines he would make a great Gover
nor. But then he is a lawyer, and as
he is young, we can promise hi m h is
reward in the future and the reformers
need a leader in the Senate, and when
Stanyarne Wilson goes to Congress anid
WV. D). Evans goes there too, and Sena
tor Timmermnan rotates int:o the Lieu
tenant Governor's chair, what will the
Senate do for a Ieader? The Herald's
maun is In the soup. It is well that yon
published that beautiful speech of.
yours, otherwise it would have been
lost forever. Mr. Gary Evans will feel
it his duty to remain in the Senate for
there he can best serve the cause of re
Then there is the Newvs and Courier
pleading the cause of W. H. Ellerbe.
In this the News and Courier has the
backing of the Register, or it seems
that way to a man on the fence. He
is trying to make all of us rich when it
comes to paying tax, and he can~ write
circulars and send instructions to the
auditors and treasni-ers. He is a farm-j
er, too, but he b'elongs to that clique at
the State House, and reform is bitterly
opposed to rings of all ki ods.
We have seen no endorsement by
any of the big dailies or little weeklies
of the Hon. James E. Tindal. Now
he is a gubernatorial possibility, and is
a reformer and a mighty nice man.
Why should he.be thus treated. If
The Herald and News were not so se
curely entrenched in its position on the
fence, we would whoop him up a little
just to see how it would take. But
then we are waiting and watching.
The Greenville News came out in a
strong endorsement of the greatness
and goodness of Senator Irby and im
mediately thereafter we hear of the
editor in Washington where thera is to
be a conferenoe of reformers. Now we
do not understand all this and we think
Editor Williams should make explana
tion of this strange proceeding.
We might go on and on trying to
penetrate .this gloom and to unravel
this tangled web, but the further we
go the more bewildered we become.
With Congressman Shell and Senator
Irby pitted against each other; with
March conventions and July conven
tions and May conventions; with alli
ance resoTutions and endorsements;
with leading newspapers running
around after strange gods and making
such queer and inexplicable alliances;
with candidates innumerable and un
namable, who are willing to lead the
people to the promised land of reform;
with State House rings and cliques,
and Washington conferences and cau
cuses: with all this mess and muddle
and mire, we admit that we are some
what mixed and bewildered and con
found^d and do not know just where
we are at, and cannot see any way out
of the difficulty unless Gov. B. R. Till
man. that great man, with the brain
and the nerve, will just consent to
throw all precedent to the dogs and
come to the fore once more, getting
down off the fence, and lead the hosts
of reform to victory. That is the only
way we see out of it, and the only way
we see to heal the breach. We hate to
be deprived of his company on the
fence, and only throw out these sug
gestions in the interest of the great re
form movement, and make no charge
for them. And why should he not be
Governor for a third term when we
have the assurance of a great reformer
in Newberry County that if he were
made Governor for life, and the Legis
lature abolished, we would have 365
Sundays in every year.
But, dear brethren, it is no quarrel of
oues. We are securely perched upon
the top of the fence, and we are not yet
ready to take up a tree or a sapling
The situation is growing iuteresting.
Our hope is that the people will begin
to see the truth as it is, and know it
and believe it when they see it. It is
our further hope that they may ere long
find out just where they are at.
Governor Tillman has reached Wash
ington and has been in conference with
the Reform leaders. He is trying to
pour oil upon the troubled waters.
How far he will succeed remains to he
seen.' Conflicting statements are being
sent out, and it will be some time yet
before we will know with just what
success he is meeting in his mission.
Tne Herald and News does not en
dorse all the suggestions or opinions
that are printed in its columns. Not
by any means. When we think the
time has come for us to take a tree or a
sapling we will announce the fact so
that you may know just where we are.
Some of our friends from the coun
try tell us that the people are very
tired of politics. All we have to say
is that we are very glad of it. We will
only dose out a little every now and
then. But they should put a quietus
on some of the leaders of reform.
How do you like the *suggestion of
an "Up-Country Reformer"? It is a
very hard matter to get up a ticket in
this era of reform on which there is
not a Newberry man. We can't say
that The Herald and News is just yet
ready to take on this ticket. You
knQw we are yet on the fence. But
we are always ready and willing to re
ceive suggestions on any line. We are
anxious to do that which will please
the people. Let the ball continue to
With so much State politics in
Washington we very much fear that
our Congressmen and the junior Sen
ator will not have much time to study
the .tariff and the financial quiestions
so as to know how to vote. They
should be permitted, or permit them
selves, to give a little time and atten
tion to.the business the people elected
them to transact.
Gen. H. L. Farley is out in an in
terview in tbe Augusta Chronicle on
the political situation in South Caro
lina. He does not express his prefer
ence for Governor, but says he will be
in the race for Congress from the 4th
District. He will make it very lively
for the other fellows over there who
want to go to Congress.
The Columbia Register has been re
duced in size and the Columbia State
increases its subscription price. The
big dailies have as hard time to make
ends meet as the little weeklies.
The leaders have all rushed to Wash
ington to ho-ld a caucus. When they
get things fixed and the offices all
parcelled out they will return and tell
the people how to vote. That is libcrty
and freedom and ring smashing with a

' NOW FOR WATER WORKS.
For several years The Herald and
News has been pressing upon the peo
ple of Newberry the importance of a
system of water works for our town.
And in cocgnection therewith we have
thought it would be wise to put up an
f electric plant for lighting the town and
furnishing light to private residences
and public buildings.
We are glad to know that our efforts
in this direction have not been entirely
forgotten. \V publish elsewhere this
week a communication from a citizen
on this subject giving three very im
portait reasons why we should have
water works. We hope our citizens
will read it and think of it. Of course
no plans or details for tbe system can
yet be given, but if it is found that the
people really want this much needed t
improvement it will be time enough t
then to go into detaiis.
There wili be found opposition to
water works just like there is opposi
tion to all 'iwpro"ements and forward
movements, but we think that if the !
sentiment of the people could be cor
rectly obtained it would be found that f
the opposition to a system of water
works would be a very small minority.
The Herald and News would be glad
to hear from other citizens on this sub
ject. In fact it was our purpose this
week to get an expression of opinion
fron a number of citizens on the
subject and we have talked to a
good many and will give their views in i
our next issue. We fiid the sentiment
in favor of water works almost unani

The Oconee News (reform) objects to c
Mr. Ellerbe for Governor. It says he n
is in full sympathy with the move
ment and all that, but there are'hosts t
of others who are also in full sympathy
"and who are not lacking in maturity
and discretion." "Then, too," says a
the News, "Mr. Ellerbe has held office
for four years, which will be a satisfac
tory reason for his retirement." The (
News must be joking. Surely it has
not been in the reform movement all
this time and has not yet learned that a
four years of office only fitted a re
former to rotate into a better office and (
so on to the end. Why there is Gov
Tillman, who didn't want any office,
after holding one for four years want- IJ
ing to rotate into a six year job. A
leading reformer expected to retire -
from office after only four years' ser
vice! Perish the thought! It is ab
surd! Where has the News been1
been since its birth to think such
thoughts, much less give expression to a
Some of the Reform organs have un
dertalken to say that the statement
in some papers that the new dispensary ~
law gave the power to search residences
without warrant was for the purpose
of misleading and creating sentiment
against the administration. But the
matter of searching your private resi- g
dence is a very easy thing. All the
constable has to do is to go before a j
trial justice and make affidavit on "in- u
formation and belief" and the justice
must issue the search warrant and the n
thing is done, and if you resist and he o
shoots you down he can plead that t
you resisted the high and strong arm
of the law and an officer in the dis
charge of his duty under that law. w
Mind you, the man who wants to make "
the search has only to make altidavir t,
on "information and belief." It is al-"
together a beautiful law. h
We would like for every one who reads P
this paper to read the article on the *
fourth page from Mr. Walker.
We have said time and again that in
our opinion thbere was too much dispo
sition among our p'eople to leave the
farm and come to town. And one rea
son is there is not enough attention
paid to the home life on the farm..
There is no life so pleasant and happy
and independent as the life of thbe farmer
if lhe will only make it so.
But the people in the towns and cities
should work together and co-operate
with the people in the coun'try inmme
diately surroundiog the town. In this
way they can be mutually helpful to
each other and can become mutually
prosperous and happy.
The Herald and News rather likes
and enjoys its position on the fence
in the present scramb,le going on in
this State. And then too we enjoy the
novelty of once, at least, agreeing with
Governor Tillman. It is about the
first time we have been together in a
long time. The present situation is in
teresting as well as amusing, viewed
from the top of the fence. No office in
sight and no political friend to boom. ti
It is glorious. The wonder is we did ~
not get this position long ago.

WATEU WORKS WE MUST HAVE.
A Number of Good Reasons for Them
Many More Could be Given-Let the
People Think and Then Act-De
lays are Danaerous.
To the Editor of The Herald and
Sews:-I have been gratified with your
requent allusions to the necessity of
taving both water works and electric
ights for our town. I do not agree with
-ou as to electric lights for the reason
bat in my judgment the town is not
-et ready for electric lights. We can
et along very well for awhile with our
resent system of lighting our streets
nd house=. Of course I am aware that
be lights at present are not what we
night wish, but if our financial condi
ion will not justify both, then let us,
ave water works. Water works will
ie an incalculable benefit to our town.
e are told by those who live in towns
r cities that have water works that
hey would not be without them for
wice the amount of the cost in taxes.
.Now, sir, I propose at this time only
bree reasons (there are many more)
iby we should have water works.
First: Our sanitary condition will
'ery soon, if it does not now, demand
t. The highest authorities tell us that
n almost every instance the chief
venue of infection in cases of typhoid
ever, that dreaded disease, is in the
vater we drink, and foraught we know
nany of the ills that we mortals are
ubjected to are traceable to the same
ource. In my humble judgment, if
ome action is not soon taken in this
natter, we will be subjected to epi
lemics that ct1 bring desolation to
ur homes. Notice that our town is
rowing, our population is increasing.
Ve are becoming more and more con
>act. Is it not time, Mr. Editor, that
omething be done along this line.
The second reason is, our insurance
vill be lessened. I am reliably in
armed that insurance in our ton
anges from 3-4 of one per cent to 54 per
ent. In some instances it amounts to
robjbition. Think of it for one no
sent? Five dollars and fifty cents on
very hundred dollars insured, or fifty
ive dollars on every thousand dollars I
rorth of insurance. It seems to me, at I
east, that the business men will save
Imost enough on insurance to pay the
tra tax incurred by water works.
The third reason. With water
works our fellow citizens who
ve away from the business por
ion of town can have some pro
ection from fire. Let us remember
hat these same citizens helped to pay
>r "Young John," and are taxed every
ear to keep up the fire department.
s it not but just that they should re
eive some protection from fire? As it
ow stands they have none.
This, Mr. Editor, is written to put
ur city fathers and our people to
binking and for no other purpose.
