Cooper's probable candidacy for governor itt 11/16 emanates, but we are sorry to hear it. For we do not believe he can be elected, that IH, ut that time; und making of un un u< < i -Hil race next year, we believe, would lessen his chances for winning in the event he run in 1918. Despite the earplugs of his critics, Governor Manning ls making good, and, according to a long established custom, he should be returned to of fice for a second term. There hu? grown up in our political system a custom of returning a m?n to ellice ut the expiration of lils first term, aijd there is no logical reason why Governor Manning should not have hi '. Governor Manning has made some mistakes, of course. Hut if mis takes caused a mun to be defeuted in the rnco for office a second time, few would bo reelected. He is consclen ciouH and ls doing his utmost to en force the luws he finds on the book:), and that without fear, fuvor or par tiality. , The custom of allowing an office holder a second term is pretty well established in South Carolina poli tics. Blouse tried to break it when Ansel was governor, but failed. Jones tried to thc same thing when Iliense was governor, and he too failed. And wo believo that if either Cooper or mease or any ono els? tries lt with Manning, they will bo divappolfiUm. This ls our honest opinion, .ind we trust thoso who differ with us politi cally will bo broad enough to respect our right to have and to express an opinion of our own. But there's no use kicking up a dust about the matter at this timo, and wo are not attempting to stir up any ?moldering poliicai fires. In fact, there's no uso starting a rucus even next year. Stand aside and let Gov ernor Manning have his second term, and then when that has expirod un leash the gubernatorial aspirants 'and pick your winner from the "frce-?'or all." What has become of tho old fash ioned girl who stayed at home the greater portion of the summer and helped mamma with the housework? -Spartanburg Journal. We don't know If it is true, but she should be In the po ?Hon of being forced to take a stick to defend herself against the I onrush of worthy young fellows who would wed nor. OUR INEVITABLE WAR POLICY. It has taken three vigorous diplo matic notes, and nearly six months of free, unanimous expression from the American people, to impress Ger many with the faot that our govern ment meant what it said in Its note ol February 10. That document was our first protest against Germany's an nouncement of her plan to destroy, without warning, any merchant ves sels found In a prescribed "war zone" which she had presumed to draw around tho coasts ot Great Britain and Prince. In that pote, our government de clared that *"it would be constrained to hold the German government to a strict accountability for such acts ol their naval authorities, end to take any steps it might be necessary tc take to safeguard American property and ot secure to American citizens the full enjoyment of 'their acknowl edged rights on the.high seas." - In reply. Germany-on February Ifl agreed with the principle of Interna tional law that ls supposed to guar antee tho safety ot neutral shipping, But she pleaded that she was 'fttrug gling for her existence," and so wa? obliged to wage a ruthless submarine campaign against Britain shipping; al-?o that, because British ships were misusing the American flag, she could not guarantee to respect thc flag. ' After several weeks of Illegal at tacks on enemy merchantmen, and cvci on two or three American mer chantmen, came the sinking of th? Lusitania, with the killing of more than 100 Americans. Biz days later, on May 13, President Wilson pro ceeded to "hold the German govern ment to a strict accountability," de manding "reparation so far as repar ation it possible for Injuries whlcli sre without measure." He added thc momentous announcement that thc United States would "not omit anj word or act'necessary to the perfor mance of Its sacred duty of Main taining the rights of the Uniter States and its citizens." Germany answered on May 30 pleading that the Lusitania carried cannon, and therefore might properly be considered an armed cruiser; thal .'German commanders are no longei able to observe 4he castomery regula tions of the prise law;" sad that Ger many believed she was acting ls Justified eelf-djfense da using an> mount} whatever to destroy ammuni tion enroute to the enemy. In the second Lui xania note, sent on June 10, t tic president denied of ficially that the Lusitania was armed, repeated his "t'oiemn warning" In behalf of an offended nation, and ex plained that the United States was "contending for nothing less high and sacred than the rights o? human ity." On July 9 came Germany's last and most disappointing response, more definitely denying responsibility for the Lusitania crime and refusing reparation, und proposing a plun by which American citizens and goods might cross tho Atlantic with impun ity under certain strict condition); prescribed hy Germany. On July 21 President Wilson deliv ered tri Germany what may be con sidered our last word on the subject. He refused, without disco, sion, Ger many's humiliating proposals for lim iting our free use of the sea; he de clared that this nation is determined to maintain its rights as a neutral on tho lrlgh seas "without compromise and at any cost," and that any further attack on our citizens* or ship? In contravention of our legul rights will be accosted as a "deliberately unfriendly act." Our government has steered an ab solutely cleo'- and consistent course from Its first word in the controversy to Its last. It has held to thc point regardless of Gorman evadions, quib bles and threats. It has stood for American rights all rho more firmly because those rights are also the riKhts of nil other neutrals, and of ali humanity. In thlB whole course, the president lie?) the united support of all true Americans-tho few disloyal ones, moved by allen Inspiration, may bc disregarded. Wc do not know what the outcome will be-lt rests with thc Gormau government But whatever comes, tho nation la prepared to do its duty, in the consciousness that it is everlast ingly right, and could not do other wise than it hos done without sacri ficing tho ideals ot 139 years and be traying tho cause of civilization. Had any new t?weet potatoes yet? That's a paragraph a la Booker. THE SKY-SCRAPPEK POSTOFFICE. Chicago bas made the belated dis covery that tho first consideration In erecting public buildings should be efficiency and servie rather than Im portal grandeur linked with insani tary architecture There have been too much mismanagement and bad Judgment in the construction of our postoffices, county court houses and other government buildings. Through misdirected sentiment or an inherent tendency toward wastefulness com munities erect architecturally beauti ful buildings, decorate them with fine painting and sculpture, fit them with elegant furniture-und utterly forget such essentials aa light, ventilation and elevator signals. Those practical things are neglect ed until the building first goes into use. Then reconstruction and remod elling throw the whole structure into confusion and greatly inconvenience the occup."its while these simple and necessary additions aro made, and mado at an expense many times what would have been required to Install them in the first place, had they been recognized na of prime importance in the first plans. It is fitting that there should bc beautiful architecture and a noble style for tho building which represent tho people. But a nkyscrapper need not necessarily be ugly-as witness the Woolworth building in New York -and is hay stylo appropriate which is lacking in the very tb'ngs that make for efficiency and service, and for the convenience and comfort nec essary to the work of tts occupants? 181.1 AND 1915. According to William Dean Howell, writing in Harper's Magasine, we have made considerable progress In the last hundred years-"we" refer ring to tho United States. la literature and art, he finds, we are far ahead of the generation of 1815. In our economic life we have made great advanees. Chattel slavery has gone, and while many vestiges of in dustrial slavery still linger, they are constantly mitigated by the growing spirit ot Justice and Sympathy, material comforts among all classes. There has been a great increase in We have Improved much In morals, ho says, and even in manners. We dont drink nearly so much liquor per capita, and we chew far less otbacco than the gentlemen of 1815 did. Be ds inclined to believe, that "lo the matter of publie men we cannot claim euqllty with 18?6," but that te something that future generations Will be better able to decide Look ing at the world in general, afr. Ho well? suggests that the present war it; much more objectionable than thc wars of a century ugo, and inquiries whether the kaiser u really any im provement on Napoleon. On the whole, his summary is good antidote for the tho present generation is decadent, reactinoury and traditional view that and the past was replete with great ness and virtue. Even in religion, says Mr. Howells, we have made prog ress. We don't have the "wild re vivals" of earlier days (even ihc Hilly Sunday brand is moderate compared with them) and we have outgrown "the terrible, New England Sabbath." Coin ern lng these matters, however, there may be differences of opinion. A LINE o' DOPE Or. Elias Cooley, a fiirgeon in the Pennsylvania Hospital, of Philadel phia, is her? for a short vacation, which he is spending wUh'his moth er, on West Whitner street. This is Dr. Cooley's first visit to-Anderson in three yeanf, and he is being warm ly welcomed by his old friends and acquaintances.

Yesterday afternoon this work i was being done on McDuflle street i just above East Whitner and quite a < crowd gathered around there to see tho engine ot wor-?c. It pulls two i Urge steel subsoil' ptows and they i certainly take the ground. It takes i two men t? the plow to hold them > and sometimes one ot the men will 1 get on a plow to weight it down to hold it In the ground. The engine of ' course has no trouble In pulling them, < bul to see bow the plows tear up the ^..d clay ls very interesting. -o-* . ?? Mr. H A, Orr stated yesterday that the paving of the street car tracks . was begun near the square for three 1 reasons; the first w?n> that the ma terial might be hauled over the P. ft N. linea to Orr Mill and thence up the track to where lt waa needed; the second was in omer that this end might be finished first so as not to tie up the Riverside car any longer than was necessary' sad the third waft lo order tba? the work might be out ot the way of the street paving forces ss soon as possible. -o- : South Main street is in a bad con dition and there is no remedy for it ontll tho paving la placed.

In the. current slsue of Farm and Fireside appears an editorial calling attention to thc fact that there is too much guesswork In grading cattle. Weight of cattle is guessed at by lmyers. A much better plan would be to have thea paid.for on the baa** of dressed weight. Follow?n gis an ex tract from the editorial :' "There is too much guesswork in marketing cattle. "It ls tho custom of most shippers to water their cattle before weighing. Cattle 'are weighed with GO or 60 pounds of water each inside ot them. The man who does not 'swell' hhs stock in this manner loses Ute 50 or 6? pounds each, for the buyers as sume that tte 'swe'.'rinfc' has taken placo. "Thia nv another case of guesswork, and the shipper loses of course. Why sot? As long as tho buyers have to guess they guess cn a saf? beats for themselves. Anybody would."
