THE INS AND THE OUTS.
There is always a good deal of talk P
about the ins and the outs in polics e
and about rotation in office. That is
indulged in sometimes from one motive
and sometimes from another, but most
generally, and especially when the ins
are spoken of slightingly, for the pur
pose of being with the majority or what
is supposed to be the majority. The S
right of legitimate criticism of any r
public official is absolutely untram- e
melled. It matters not whether it
comes from the individual or from the
newspaper legitimate criticism of pub
lic officers is helpful. On the other
hand the criticism w7hich is spiteful
and comes from personal dislikes, and
is insinuating and attempts to be sar
castic is always contemptible and never
accomplishes anything for him who in- d
dulges in it and rarely hurts the polit
ical interests of the public official criti
We started out, however, to say that e
under our present system of selecting
public officers from governor to coroner
the outs have about as much showing of
getting in as the ins have of staying in.
The people choose whom they want an a
the majority rules. No set of men can
get together and parcel out the offices
and any slates made are liable to be
broken. The offices belong to the peo
ple under the primary plan in fact as
well as in name, and no man can dictate a
whom they will select and no officer has i
a prior lien on the office he tolds, and t
the man who is out has as mich right t
to aspire to it and to get it as the man t
who is in the office now. t
No case should be prejndged but
every one should go before the people
on his merits. That is the purpose of
the primary. The man who thinks he
has a right to an office is sometimes v
badly disappointed, for the people may f
determine otherwise. It is an honor- a
able ambition which leads a man to d
ask the suffrages of his fellowcitizens
and it should be done in an honorable
way, and the people should endeavor
always to select the best m6n.
Hon. W. N Graydon who is a candi
date for congress from this district
proposed to his other two competitors
.from the same county, (Abbeville) to
hold a special primary to decide which
of the three should run from A bbeville
County. He thinks tbat three candi
dates from the same county for the
same office will jeopardize the interests
of all three. The p'roposition was
rather novel. The others, Wyatt Aiken
and J. H. McCalla declined the propo
The~ county that has too many candi
dates for State and federal offices rarely
ever gets any of them in out the numn
ber of candidates from I,be county
may not in the least influence the votec
in other counties. We had no idea,
however, that Mr. Graydon's proposi
tion would be accepted. We have

The Charleston Exposition is pulling
the crowds to the front in the past two
weeks. We hope it will keep up for an
other six weeks or more.
This week there are governo~rs of four

the up country have been very large. If
the advertising had been a little moret
judiciously done this attendance might i
be still larger.
It is a beautiful show and is well worth

pleasant outing and at the same time of
The State Press Association will hold f
its annual mesting in the beautiful old
town of Georgetown on the 28th of May.i
Secretary Langston will in a few days e
issue the programme for the meeting as
arranged by the executive committee,i
and as soon as that is done the arrange- d
ments at the Georgetown end will be 1
perfected. The Georgetown people are 1
noted for their open-hearted hospitality, t
and on this occasion it is understood they
are going to surpass all former records. a
No newspaper man c. woman in this l1
State s-hould miss this meeting. It is al
ways pleasant to attend the annual meet- r
ings, but on this occasion it is going to e
be esp. cially pleasant.
UThe county clubs will meet on Satur- i
day, 26th, and there should be a full r
attendance. It is the duty of every
good citizen to give some of his time to e
the politics of the county. We want to a
see representati'e men come to the 'y
county convention and then send your t
good men to the State convention. n
You can never tell what is going to E
come up, and there is no good judgment y
in absenting yourself from your club f:
