The election returns show that Capt.
D. C. Heyward has been nominated for
governor by a very ha;ndsome vote. it
is a remarkable v:tory, for when f l
was announced he as unknown in the2
State, except to a few personal friers.
He had no political record to be attac.M.1
and none upon which to make the race.
He is a clean man and comes of a
distinguished family and the family
name is not unfamiliar in the history of
the State. He is a rice planter and has+
never held public office of any kind.
His opponent, Congressman Talbert,
has been in public life for the past
twelve years as superintendent of the
penitentiary and Congressman from the
Second District and could have re
tained his position in all probability for
another term. Capt. Heyward we are
sure will make a good governor and
give the State a wise and safe and
business like administration. We oex
tend to him our congratulatons and give
him our assurance of support in his
efforts to be the governor of all the
people and for the advancement of
Now that the elections are all over
we want to get to other matters, such
as the development of our town and
county. Some more small and large
industrial enterprises would help every
body. A broom factory properly man
aged would be a paying enterprise to
the stockholders as well as give some
diversity for our farmers as br.oom
could be successfully grown in this
county. The mill towns which we now
have are sources of revenue to our
farmers as they give a market for the
truck farmer. Another mill would help
that much more. Everybody should
work together for the advancement
and uplifting of the community.
The executive committee met yester
day morning and adopted the tabula
tion of the vote in this county as made
by The Herald and News as the official
result. We were very careful in the
returns and in the tabulation and we
feel sure the figures are correct.
- Von Kolnitz has been elected State
Senator from Charleston County by a
small majority. There are charges of
C> fraud, but the result will not be changed.
V It is a pity to have any charges of
wrong doing in our primary, or even
any foundation for them.*
Senator Appelt of.Clarendon has been
defeated by a small vote for re-election
as State Senator from that county.
We regret this. He has been a faith
ful representative and is alive to the
progress of his State.

Southern Railway is making an espe

many of its through trains, and in order
to make dining cars more attractive
than ever, are now equipping all of
these cars with electric _ans and elec

cars in through lines between Atlanta

electric fans and electric lights, and
these improvements will continue until
all of the dining cars on the Southern
system will have these advantages.
There are very few roads in the world

day was a most delightful occasion and
much enjoyed by those present. The
program has already been published
and was carried out by the young peo

was indebted to Mr. Thadeus Epting

It is well known to the people of

.em :Ll'tn. I me it was, and is a ques
t:n of co.t.rol. The State has alwa-;

be free and unrestricted as it is on other
articles. The question then arose,
which or what is the better or best
method of control. The idea of many
good people is to stop it and have no
liquor sold at all as a beverage. But
that is simply an impossibility. Men
are too fond of indulgence in that which
renders them for the time gay and
happy and rich.
The Dispensary System offered, as I
thought, and still think, the best so
lution of the question. But I did not
think of the horrible excesses that have
been grafted upon it, nor of the wicked
abuses that have grown out of it. I
never dreamed, and could not possibly
dream that under this system a consta
ble could become so great as to be the
embodiment of the State and find it
no longer possible to go wrong, no
matter what he did. He is the State
and is responsible to no one no matter
what he does, and is not liable to
punishment. This is an abuse I could
not possibly foresee.
There is another constantly growing

But of existence of this, however, I do
not know; but it is reported that mem

vantage of their positions to act as
agents for large liquor houses and re
ceive a per centage for services thus
rendered. They thus act in a double
capacity, officers of the State and
agents for liquor makers and are paid
by both. Whether there is any truth
in this I do not know. But not a great
while ago Senator McLaurin published
such charges against a high official of
