THF, (?rilKKNATOKIAL IIOKOKt OI'K Ki il lo wi ti ii up remarks Til? lutclll genet r mude ycBt< rilriy nuuut thc talk ul Solicitor Cooper's candidacy for governor In 1910, us un opponent or Governor Maiming, it la a ruthcr unique coincidence lhat tlx-' Bpartnn burg Journal < xpressed almost H inul tnnncously tho Hame belief* as The Intelligencer, namely, that if the Laurens man enters the rac?' for gov ernor next summer against Governor Manning ho will not only he defeated hut will injure, if not destroy alto gether, his chances for election In 1916, in UR- event he should enter thc race then. Tho Journal says: A story sent out from Anderson says that K?bort A. Cooper while in that city .Saturday Intimated very strongly that hu would be in the race for governor next sum mer ngwlnst Richard I. Manning. While lu- would make no positive nnnoi in enicnt lo this effect, he, it ls said, loft the impression t i nilly tlxed on interviewers that he would lie in the running. Mr. Cooper lind better consider the situation mont carefully be fore toKsitiK lib hat In the ring for he has much to lose as well ss to gain. The condition be faces now ki a most perplexing one. if Mr. Coopur should run against Mr ' Manning and he de feated it would he the death knell of Cooper'? political ambit ion:; to bo governor Ile would be a dend cock in tho pit thereafter because lu running against Mr. .Manning he would lose some very strong admirers of himself, men who wish to see him the next gov ernor but wish to see him elected ufter Manning lias had two terms. Should he run against Manning he ls going to make political ene mies of this class and there are a good man)' thousand of these men in tho State. Besides he would lose prestige by def?ut. On tho other hand Mr. Cooper ho? to consider the possibility of somebody else defeating Mr. Man ning next summer If he (Cooper) doesn't run. Should some ono else bent Manning that would have a tendency to leascn Coop er's chances in 1918. This is a matter the Laurens man has to think over also. Wu uv oe with The Journal thor oughly In tho above. Discussing til probability of Hoa.*W. P. Pollock en terbig tho race next summer. Th Journal has this to say: In tho meantime you can put. this In your pipe and ?moke lt: If W. P. Pollock runs for gover nor as be is said now to be con sidering, he ls- going to-be tr very, very hard man to beat. Almost uny day you can bear men who ordinarily would support Man ning or Coopor say that they would vote for Pollock in prefer ence to anybody lu tho State. Only Sunday we heard a strong Cooper man say that if Pollock ran ho would cast Cooper aside and voto for.trim. We bavo heard Manning men say that Pollock was the only man they would vote for In preference to Man ning. We do not think the tame way i The Journal with regard to Mr. Pc lock. AB WC said in a previous I sue,? in South Carolina's politic system thero is a pretty well esta lished custom of returning omi holders for a second term, provld they desire Buch. You can almo count on your lingers the office hoi ers who have been retired at the c plratlon of .the first term. Rcgai less of whether an official has ma good or has fallen down on the j< the voters as a whole arc inclined be charitable and view the mlstnlt ot his first term us being due ?o t fact that ho bad much to do in g ting hi. bearings and much difflcu in taking up tho threads where til were broken off and mero or 1< tangled by n previous administrait! In other words. South Carolina v ?.rs as a whole believe in giving office holders, a square deal and fair chance, and they realise that not always possible for a man have a fair showing during his f. term of office. Wo do not bclicvo 1 Pollock can defeat Qovcrnor Mann any more than (Solicitor Cooper, co not bellovo any ono can defeat I ro ent executive In his raco foi uccond term. Swinging back to tho subject Manning, The Journal has this to i with which we agree: Governor Manning, howovor. 1 going to be very bard to beat ll bas made some mistakes from Ui standpoint ot a politician, lt i true. But any man who assume the office at the timo ho did wodi havo been criticized. The avei age man aeems disposed to thin that tho Sumter man has prove a pretty, solid governor and tht he ls entitled to a second tern Ho contends that whatever mit takes Manning has mado hal been on tito side of right-poi slbly through overzealousness i do tho right thing. It 1? argue that the good people to a ms ought to back him up. The campaign Ia a great mau months off yet and thero may t many changes In tho llno-up 1 that time.

Tin- other ?I iy an excited individual rushed Into a newspaper ollie?: with a choice hit of scandal burning lils tongue, lt mad?; no difference lo this pc n on that the scandal affected the daughter of lils neighbor -that thc mother of thc Kiri was seriously ill that the brother was just entering what promised to be a successful pro fessloual carrer. The scandal was rich In Davor, and he wanted to eeo it in tlic paper. Ile told thc cditm about lt, with every evidence of thc kecu relish of tho scandal connois seur, but impressed upon thc news paper niau that the source of his lu formak'on must be kept inviolably secret. When thu paper came out. Hie man returned to demand why thu story hadn't been printed. Short, sharp words followed, and the visi tor called tho editor a coward and left, vowing that a man who was afraid to tiriut the news had no ri^bl to lie an editor. To our mind, that editor wa-, a brave, man. The. Inform er who demanded that his name be kept secret, was the coward. The editor ran a paper in a small town. So closely related were the lives of tho Inhabitants, that the editor knew every detail of the story hefore his visitor culled on him. Hut he could sec no prolit for himself nor glory for his paper in printing an item that would bring sorrow to the gray hairs of a father, disgrace to u brother and probably fecrlous conse?iu'enccB to a! sick mother. If tho news appetites of his readers were so voracious, he thought, as to demand this costly food, he would refuse lo puy thc price. Tho editor wus right. Many things ho has to print which he would rather leave unsaid, hut thc scandal which hu3 only its "spice" to recom mend it should have no place in thc columns of a self-respecting paper, wo would rather build than tear down. We would rather print thc thluga that helj) und encourage and uplift than to hold up tho mistakes of some unfortunate to the scorn and contempt of his neighbors. Decency ls not lack of courage. If it were, wc would rather bo decent than cour ageous. "LESSONS IN CRIME." Hore'B moro abuse for tho poor newBpaperB. Katherine Dement Davis, art uplifter whom New York's reform mayor placed lu charge of tho city prisons, has refused to let thc prison ers in Blackwell's Island read news papers in their cells because, she Bays. "Tho average dally newspaper IB a lessou in crime." Muybo tliis ls only a Hash of re sentment due to the fuct that even M i S? Davis, though one of thc most capable and clear-headed women lr public life, ls subject to the weak ness of not being able to endure tilt leis.m. Or mnybo her slur \u really deserved by New York newspapers - though to an outsider, the metropoli tan aheota seem to havo vasily im proved .-ince tho old "yellow" days thnt won them unenviable fame. It will be nows, however, to iuo:. American readers to bc told that their newspapers aro "lessons In crime." Tho papers, of course, print stories of crime-because crimea oc cur, und tho public has a desire and a right to know about them, and be cause publicity is thc best corrective of crimo and wrong. Dut if there over was an era when our newspap ers generally sought to exploit crime und take udvantagc of unwholesome public interests to fatten their circu lation, that timo has passed. It is sato to say that thc average news paper today prints far less crime and vice in its columna than thc aver age reader would read with avidity If lt were there. Thero ls a deliberate, conscious purposo In thc minds of most editors to placo before their readers nothing that is not good for them to read. Even the New York papers, as tho World pointod out, car ried, in tho samo Issue containing this criticism, from Miss Davie, a total quantity of criminal nows filling less space than Miss Davin' own state ment of her own plan to reform prison conditions. - NETS TO CATCH TORPEDOES. It ts announced that Admiral Tay; lor, chief constructor of the navy, has perfected a device to protect battle ships from submarines. It is describ ed as a heavy charin net, which will be suspended from booms projecting j from tho ship1 at a distance of abouti fifteen pr twenty feet from the sides. The bow and stern, apparently, are not to bo protected. They aro sel dom In danger. A submarine always discharges as nearly as possible a torpedo at right angles to a ship, be cause tho eldo offers tho best target To aim directly at the bow of an ap proaching ship ? almost useless, and besides wcutd put the submarine tn danger of being rammed. The stern, too. offers a poor target These facts aro fortunate for thc success of tho now device, fur if heavy dots had to ho hung III thc water ahead and astern of a ship they would retard its speed. Hung aiongitdc, they may not he much of a drag. Tln re seems to be no reason why the plan shouldn't work. The nets arc to he hung out only when the warship is in u danger zone. Tilt y will stop u torpedo before it strikes Hie ship, lt may stick In the meshes and ru\ down liannicrasly, or it may explode, 'ti the latter case, there will probably lie no more harm done than tile de luging of thc deck with a column of water. ? milar nets hung over the bow ought to be a sufficient protection against floating mines, ir the British navy had adopted such a device early In Hie war. i?. would have several more battleship and cruisers afloat to day. Perhaps tho Dardanelles fleet is now protected lu that very way. lt only goes to show that there's a remedy for everything, even in war fare. The only trouble is that in the endless competition In t we n offense and ilcfen.se, weapons generally man? np- to keep to a lap ahead of armor. ll JA LINE jo' D O P ? j In order that employees, of tho On Mills may enjoy a vacation, the man agement has cuused to be posted a notice to thc effect that the mill will close at tho regular stopping lime on Saturday, August 7 and remain closed until thc morning of Monday, August 16.

Thc Brogon Mill will be closed on Monday for two weeks, as was an nounced several day& ago. This is tho custom every year and ii? looked 'orward to by both tho management and tho operatives. Tho Piedmont mills will also close on August 7 and remain closed for several Uayy. Thero aro all kinds of 'schemes for getting tile other fellow's money but wo neard a now ono yesterday. A Greenwood negro delegate to n colored Sunday school convention near Hodges was met at the elation by two "brethren," who wore to es cort bim to tho meeting place. After lawking down tho road for a little piece one of the "brethren" dropped in the rear and after a little exclaim ed that he lind found a pocketbook and that on the inside he saw a $100 greenback. There then arose a discussion os to how tho money would bo divided, tho colored delegato saying that he would have to get part of the money to keep quiet. Tho visitor stated that he had $C0 In Iiis pocket and that he would give tho other two this amount and they could give him tho $100 bill. Thia was agreed upon and after counting out and handing $30 a piece to tho negro escorts, the brother call ed for the $100. However, he was Jost a little bit too slow. Thc other negroes had taken to their heels and two little clouds of dust down the road were all that could bc seen. The two thieves ran and boarded an Interurban car and made lt to the yards tn Greenwood, where they Jumped off.

AT SURAMER SCHOOL BY PROF. LUECO GUNTER, STATE RURAL SCHOOL INSPECTOR CONDITIONS IN S. C. 80 Per Cent of Children Receive Education in Schools With Not Over Three Teachers. Prof. Lucco Gunter, Inspector of rural schools, addressed 4he teacher of the summer school yesterday at noon, his subject, "Tho Organization and Courso of Study in the One, Two and Three-Teadher Schools." Prof. Gunter's first point waa that schools with at least five or s|x teachers, giving their timo to high school work could no more than give thorough instruction in the text books as adapted by thc state board of edu cation and that when it came to schools with fewer teachers than these, tho problem ia to have the classes and courser of study arrang ed so as to get tho best results. Mr. Gunter atatcd that 80 per cent of l?e children in South Carolina re ceived their education in schools that had one, two or three teachers, and that tho problem stated above was one that deserved much attention. . : Mr. Guutor stated that a one-teach er school should not attempt more than seven grades, a two-tcecher school not moro Chan eight grades and a three-'eacher school not more than nine grades. This will allow the teachers to give their t'rue and atten tion to the pupils, not as much as they should have, but the best that can be doue with the teachers limited. ?lr. Gunter then went into the work of organisation of classes in the school rooms so that each pupil might receive tho proper attention. Yesterday morning Prof. Gunter and Supt. Felton visited the colored summer normal sdhool. Yesterday afternoon they went to tho Saluda association at Starr. DEATHS afr. W. A. Tedd. Mr. W. A.

About 14 years ago Mr. Todd waa married -to Miss Daisy Brlsscy who died about 12 years ago. Besides his ltttto daughter. Miss Daisy Todd, he la survived by ono brother. Mr. E. K.

Governor Manning made an address in the Abbeville Baptist church last Sunday, which in BO mo respects was : a remarkable utterance. He had come as ouc of a number of distin guished laymen who have been speak ing in thc Baptist church here Sun day afternoon during the spring and summer. Tile governor's address was upon four topics, the church, the state, ?ducation, and the home,. I would that space and time permitted a re sume of bis address; but it is to that portion of it which referred to educa tion that I wish to write. Mr. Manning referred to the growth of general education . He said, in medieval times only the monks were educated. He traced the history ot tho spreading of education, saying lt is now wcllnigtot universal. Point ing out the advantages to society and religion of the general education of tho people, he paid glowing tribute to the public schools and state colleges of today. Thea followed that portion of his address which I huve bpoken of as remarkable. It was the governor's reference to Christian schools. Governor Manning declared that education of the head and hand of man is uttorly inadequate to a woll rounded personality. For men, bo said, ls a triune being, and 'he heart may not br left untaught it the man is to bo well educated. Mind, body and spit lt constitute the full man. He said tho state moy leach the mind, and in its vocational training develop the body; but the state may not teach religion. That ls peculiarly the func tion of the * churches, and without churches the Btate is crippled aha weakened beyond repair in its civilis ing and refining influences. Gover nor Manning then spoke of the deno minational school, and paid fi'tlog and worthy tribute to it. He argea the ?apport of Christian schools, whore the religion of Jesus Christ may be and ls taught. Christianity, he said, is the saving essence ot so ciety. Without lt tho state will lapse Into -barbarism... He made a forceful pica for tho Christian school. Governor Manning's address mad? a profound Impression upon the large aud lonco who heard him. The malu auditorium, tho Sunday school room and tho class rooms of tho church wore filled with people More than fifty chairs vere In the aisles. . All denominations were represented. Mr. Vanning is an Episcopalian, and those who ?noir hhn ar? familiar with tho virile and active :?>po of bis Christianity. Ills plea ?or Christian schools was not remarkable es com ing from Mr. Fielt api I. Manning; but as coming from the governor ot South Carolina. Uo ls ex-offlclo chairman of the board, of trustees ot all the state colleges-the Universi ty, Winthrop, the Citadel, Cedar Springs, the Negro College, and all tho rest. He is a life member of Clemson's board. His sprvlep in the House and Renate ot tho l?gislature always favored liberal appropriations tor state schools; andi that he favors now, as a statesman. And be does not undervalue the work t?f ?tate schools; tor trum it. As a progres sive Christian Uaiosman ho realises tho Superior value of a Chriton school to any and all other. The governor ot Sooth Caroling ls an ag gressive Christian as well ss an ag trees'.WB Chief Executive. The state caay- voil rejoice. Abbeville.
