The State convention meets tomor
row and the politicians and candidates
will hie themselves to the capital
There is not much for the convention
to do. A platform will be adopted and
we suppose Senator Tillman will en
deavor to get his views endorsed as to
the modification of the oath to be taken.
It is true that no one but a Democrat
should vote in a Democratic primary
and certainly no one but a Democrat
should ask the suffrages of Democrats,
but we are not in favor of making the
requirements too strict or straight
laced., The purpose of the primary sye
tem, it seems to us, will be subserve<
by letting the pledge stand very muct
as it is, to abide the . eeult and suppori
the nominees. Take our own State
We remember that one of the leading
planks in the platform has been an en
dorsement of the dispensary system ani
yet many Democrats have not only no
endorsed it but have c6ntinued to figh
it. Some of these same people are nov
demanding that the pledge be amendet
so as to include an endorsement of thi
platform without knowing what thi
platform is to be. Suppose the dispen
sary is endorsed in the platform, wha
will they do? A few years ago th,
leaders in our State condemned th,
national platform of the party and wen
so far as to pass resolutions in a Stat
Democratic convention' condemning
Democratic president. It is Dot oui
purpose to discuss this phase o
tbe question.' We want to say tha
while we discuss this matter w,
should not forget the past and that a
we view our primary, it is more to ge
the choice of the white men of the Stat
)tthe-election of officers than to bin'
a the voters to the planks of a plat
-form, aod in our judgment the bes
results will be obtained by lettzag thi
voters have some latitude in voting
That they are qualified electors ani
entitled to vote and will abide the re
sult and support the nominees of th,
party is sufficient pledge. Some o
those who are clamoring for an addi
tional pledge did not even keep th,
pledge we now have in days gone by.
Speaking of the pledge in the pri
mary the Charleston Post asks:
~hall the convention confine its de
el rations to national issues and maki
no enunciation upon matters of loca
State concern? if not will the dispen~
sary principle be reaffrmed as it ha
been by so many conventions? An'
finally if it is will no candidate be per
-mitted to enser the race unless he sul
scribes to this principle? That woun<
make a rather awkward state of affair
for The State and The Evening Pos
and o.thers who are opposed to the die
pensary system, and yet It is quite th
logical outcome of the course urged b;
That is the point upon which w
would like to have light. If you ar
going to require voters and candidate
to pledge unwavering support of plal
forms, just as well require them ti
-support the dispensary system,
put in the platform, as tariff, anti
imperialism, or free silver, 16 to]
-and would the editor of The State sup
port the dispensary system if it shoult
2e put in the Democratic platform
*We should be lair and impartial in ou
egorts to bind others.
Since writing the above we hayi
seen the reply of the State, in whici
that newspaper holds that the mainte
nance of the dispensa ' int~ is
"'policy," wiie.A1'perialism, trust
andlErif,;" are "principles." It aj
pears tous as ifthe editor of the State
has made a distinction without a differ
ence. However, we suppose he want
to play the role of dictator, as usua:
and pledge candidates and voters ti
support those planks in the platfora
which are in accordance with hi
views, styling these "principles," an<
those with which he does not agree
wby, simply pass these over with si
lent contempt, so far as the pledge i
concerned, calling them "policies."
There is no one thing so importan
to our county and State as the questioi
of road improvement. Under our pres
ent system we can never have more
than makeshifts in the way of publit
roads. We would be glad to see the
city of Newberry take the four leading
roads from the court house and buik4
them out from that point about tw<
miles in each direction as they shouli
be as object lessons, and it would no1
be long before the pple of the count3
would demand that these be extende<
throughout the county. The only wa:
to do it is by the contract system. The
county of Mecklenberg in North Caro
lina levies a road tax of 18 cents on the
$100 and in addition to this each town
ship levies a road tax of 7 cents on the
$100, and some of the townships levya
special road tax of 15 cents on the $100
It is the best investment these town
ships can make. If we are to have
good roads we must expect to pay foi
them, but it is money economically
and wisely spent. Mecklenberg county
has about 100 miles of- macadamized
roads and some of these roads cost as
mnnch as from $2,700 to $4,000 They
are now building the same roads at a
cost of $1,600 to $2,500 per mile, and
the more they build, the greater the
demand' is. We should start in this
county at once.
The commencement season and the
commencement orator are near at hand.
We always enjoy these occasions. We
like to see the bouyant hopefulness of
the young man graduate and the happy
smile of the girl graduate. Our best
wishes always g-o with them.
The crop prospects in this Sta
were never brighter at this season th
they are now. The cotton and the co
are looking well. The stands are go
and the plants look healthy and vig
ous. The farmers certainly need
good yield and a fair price. We
glad the prospect at present is so
