HYWARD'S STATE POLICY.

Eight Attltude-tppolntments to
omees can Watt Awhile-Pre
paring I"sugural Address.
Walterboro, S. 0.-Following his
nomination in the Democratic pri.
finary in September last, Capt. D. 0.
Heyward, who was chosen at that
time as the nominee of the party
gave expression to the opinion that
inasmuch as he had not been for
mally -elected Governor, being only
the.candidate of the party, he felt
that it was premature for him, to give
any' definite expression as to his pur.
poses or plans and that he felt that
it. was more within the bounds of
- propriety for bun to await the elec
tion of November 4 before giving his
attention to those matters which
come within the sphere of the Gov
This course on the part of the
Democratic nominee was entirely
proper and his determination to ab
stain from any public announcement
of an official character or to take up
the consideration of those matters
which pertain to his office was appre.
ciated and endorsed by the public.
Although it is generally recognized
that the nomination in the Decem
ber primary in South Carolina is
tantamount to an election and has
almost come to be so regarded by
our people, nevertheless such is not
-actually the case and the indelicacy
of a candidate of one of the politi
cal parties planning his course of
action and giving public utterance as
to his purposes before he was actu
ally elected will readily be seen and
- the wisdom of the course pursued by
Capt. Heyward appreciated.
The election of last week, at which
itime the unanimous vote of the State
-was cast for him, however, removei,
these restrictions of propriety and
dnasmuch as he is now legally the
'Governor-elect-requiring only the
,oath of office as necessary to make
.lim in truth the Governor of the
State-it is natural and proper for
-him to be giving his thoughts and
attention to the manifold duties
-which confront him and to be plan
.ning to put into execution those ideas
and purposes which he trusts will
,materially advance the interest of tho
8tate in every branch-agricultu
rally, mechanically, educationally,
einorally and industrially. In the
hope :of giving to the readers of the
Evening Post some suggestions as to'
what the Governor, elect purposes
doing, your correspondent called
upon him at his comfortable home
in Walterboro and solicited fron him
some information along the lines in
dicated above. Gov. Heyward con
fidi ngly informed your representa
tive that the returns of the evening
of November 4 were not as anxiously
secured as were those of August 26th
or September 9th and, strange alit
-might seem, he was not in the least
nervous as to the result. He felt
gratefu., however, for the way his
friends had turned out and cast their
btillots for bira, even if it was merely
a prefuanctory matter.
"I realize already," said Gov. Hey
*ward, ''that the offies 'to which J
have been elected is no sinecure.
To faithfully atid honestly discharge
the duties which devolve upon me
wvill be my constant aim, but it will
~call for the exercise of unceasing and
*earnest efforts, and I.am relying on

and on all patriotic citizens to sup
p6rt me in my efforts, letting past
differences be forgotten arnd each
and every one cont ributing to the bet
* oring and upbuilding of the State
we all love so a~ arny. I can not
hope to escape critici-m nor can I
expect to have my iadminist.ration be

ment to be made, especially whien
half a -community will sometimes
sign the application of parties they
personally know to be unlit for the
offo to which they aspire. It will
be my purpose as I have already
publicly announced to rely upon the
recommendation of the several coun
ty delegations in making county
appointments, violating this rule only
for good and sufficient. reasons.
Should I Bnd that the recommenda
tion of any delegation is such that it
is clear that they are not acting for
the best interest' of the community
but are using the trust reposed in
them for selfish purposes or to ad
vance their own interest at the sacri.
floe of their communities welfare, I
will not feel bound to accept their
recommendations then or hereafter
my sole object being to give to each
community the officials and appoint
ments; most desired by them and best
calculated to accord them the most
acceptable service, and I believe as a
general rule, the will of the pe4ple
-an best be attained through this 1me
dium than by attempting direct 1alf
pointments on 'knowledge W'hich may
be given to me by the means of peti
tions and otherwise."
The bettering of the common
school facilities is a matter which is
giving the Governor-elect some con
sideration and he is endeavoring. to
devise means by which the opportu
nities of placing a fair education
within the reach of every hamlet may
be facilitated and affected.
Reared in the country and fami
liar as he is with plantation life,
Capt Heyward is thoroughly con
versant with the need of improved
educational facilities, and while an
advocate of higher education, he re
a,izes that there are able exponents
in and out of the Senate and Legis
lature who will look after the inter
est of colleges and universities, so he
will devote himself for the present
to fostering and aiding the schools
in the rural districts.
TH DISPENSARY LAW.
The enforcement of the dispenoary
law has been the subject of much
consideration by the Governor-elect,
and he is hopeful that under his"ad
ministration much of the friction
which has exi - *he past may be
obliterated ? is on the stat
ute book dent of the peo
ple of tho State advocates of it,
and as law. abiding citizens those op
posed to it should abide by the ;law
and support it. He is not unmind
ful of the hardships which cobfront
him in the discharge of his duty in
regard to this law iii certain locali
ties, and he can only depend on~ the
public spirit of the people to sustain
him in his efforts not to have the law
He believes that the wishes of a
community should be recognized, but
he has not power to exempt any com.
munity or section of the State from
the operation of the law, and under
his oath of office he will have to icarry
out the law without favor to all parts
and portions of the State. He does
not expect to be able to absolutely
prohibit~the illicit selling of liquors
-in the larger cities it will be al.
most impossible to do so-but he is
determined that there shall be a re
spect shown to the law and that
gross and flagrant violations shall be
unknown, and if the law is violated
it will be done in so surreptitious a
manner as to elude the vigilance of
the city police and State constables,
and can not, therefore, be offensive
to the God-fearing and law-abiding
people of our State and being a me
nace to the growing 'youth of our
cities, who, by seeing laws openly
violated, simply because they are
distapteful, will soon learn to hold
our whole sy stem of government in
He did not anticipato serious
trouble along that line, as the law is
not now as objectionable as it had
been, and there is a stronger feeling
prevalent to give the law a fair trial
which in some places - it has never
had, and besides, the public in gene
ral are not unmindful of the- serious
results of wilfelly trampling a law
in the dust, jnst because it was ob.
jectionable. The factional feeling
having subsided, the patriotism of
the people is asserting itself, and the
blind tigers will be made to go way
back and sit down. It is -evident
that the Governor-elect is determ.
ined to select as his constables good
and true men who can be relied on
to,see that the law is respected, but
to do so in such a manner as not to
arouse any unnecessary friction or to
occasion a better feeling.
He believes that much can be ef
fected through the medium of local
authorities and is going to exert him.
self to that end. He believes that
the justice of the position which he
takes will be appreciated by those to
whom the law may be personally of.
fensive, and that they will be among
his warmest advocates in maintain
-ing the law and keeping true to his
oath of office and campaign pledges.
He will be disappointed if his expeo.
ta'ions along this line are not real
AS TO APPOINTMENTS.
He has been giving the matter of
his military staff some attention and
has his eyes on those whom he wishes
to make a part of his official . family.
These appointments are of such a
character as to exclude them from
the list which is usually applied for,
as it rarely occurs that personal ap.
plication is made for a staff appoint.
ment, it being generally accepted
that the Governor should be hands
free in selecting those who are to be.
'bome his body guard. Even the se
lection of those are a source of much
thought and care has to be exercised
so that all sections are recognized
and given representation as far as
practicable, and thus it is that fre
quently the best of friends have to
be overlooked in order to make place
for another because of the locality
he hails from. It is safe to say that
the personnel of Gov. Heyward's
staff will be exceptionally fine, and
be representative of the best and
brightest of the young manhood of
He has been deluged with appli
cations for almost every appointive
office in the State, but beyond se
lecting his private secretary in the
person of J. E. Norment, which he
is gratified to know was so satisfac
torily received, he has abstained from
giving such applications any very
serious consideration. Very few of
these positions can be filled until
some time after his inauguration, and
probably many of them not until
after the adjournment of the Legis
lature, and therefore there is no ne
cessity for his time and attention to
be devoted to their consideration at
this juncture when so many more
pressing and important matters are
under consideration. TI.e many ap
plications, therefore, are simply be
ing acknowledged ad filad away for
future reference. The inauguration
date has not been definitely determ
ined upon, although it is probable
that the usual precedent will be fol
lowed and the momentous event oc.
cur the second week of the legislat
ive session. The Governor is giving
some thought to his inaugural mess
age, in order that the consideration
of that important document may be
Taxes Muost bo Faid on Time so Far as the
Governor and Compt,rolier General
[News and Courier.]
The matter of the extension of the
time for the payment of taxes has
again come up in a somewhat differ
ent manner from the ordinary way,
but the same conclusion has been
determined on-there will be no ex
tension so far as the governor and
comptroller general are concerned.
The governor has received comnmu
nications from three county auditors
asking that the time bn extended.
These come from Greenville, Chero
kee and B3arnwoll.
Auditor Hicks, of Barnwell, ad
vances as a reson that the Act of
1902 provides that 1 per cent. pen.
alty should be added on unpaid taxes
by January 1; the same on those
unptid February 1, and 5 per cent.
on unpaid March 1. He says the
blanks prepared for treasurers were
printed and distributed befori, the
Act went into effect, and that the
necessary columns are not on them
