A HU H HSU KM, KIMMI MA N M NC. Disp?tenos appearing in afternoon , papen of lite State yesterday under a t Columbia dute-line read UH follows: In u slntenient gires out today Co vernor Matting denies incon HlMteney In offering rewards for de rapture of persons accused of erlme.. The statement uns mude In ?len of t??e criticism of his of? ier of a rewnrd for au alleged negro murderer of Abbeville, who 1 hld lieeu reported lynched hut had escaped to Alabama lt Ix thought. "I hate rein MM} rewards In cases asked where there wan no special reason except that the criminal had not been arrested" stated the governor. When rewurds were offered he avrrred the alleged criminals had made good their escape. Relative to the Anderson county case the governor said a reward was re? quested before the officers had a fair chance to apprehend the al? leged criminal. "I rannt do my duty as 1 see it even though I am criticised for so doing" con cludes the statement. 1 Zounds, not much "Inconsistency" in that, eh? Just plain, every-day ; common sen<re. But it is no less than i we expected. In discussing this mat 1 ter previously, we asserted that wo ,. were confident that Governor Mnn ' mug would give from -the stump next 1 summer, in the event he stands for re-election, an account of his stewnrd , phip ti nt woud be entirely satlsfac t( ry to his followers- and confounding to his critics and enemies. Governor Manning chooses to give this account in g, with respect to the re ward business, at-the. present Instead of walting un til next summer and giving it from tho stump. ' It's no use arguing about the mattar further. Manning is dead right about tho proposition, and that is all there ls to lt. Those who have "Jumped on" him about the matter of offering a reward in one instance and not of fering a reward in another in stance, cither went off half-cocked or belong to that class of "metaphysicians" who deny that "circumstances alter cases" and that a man must be consistent at ; any price, doing the same tiling every time, In every instance and in the same manner, regardless of circum stances. Might as well argue that the taking of human life is murder, regardless of whether the. circum stances surrounding the act make lt puro and unadulterated murder, man slaughter, a killing in self defense or > an accidental killing. 3o much for that But mark you the ?? 'i of the mah: "I must do my f .< at I see lt. even though I am cr Unified for so do? lng." That's Richard I. Manning. A man - who dare? to do right who dares to obey his conscience and who dares <o perform his duty as he sees it, re gardless of the cons?quences?. Nor. much of a "politician," you aay. No, thanks be to God, there's not Governor Manning's mistaken have been mistakes,, of "policy," and noth ing more; his intentions haye boen good. "Policy" and "politics" have io place in bis make-up. South Caro lina has suffered for "policy's" and politicians'" sake" so long it la a ro 1 lief to havo at the helm a skipper who darna to drive his ship athward tho current of "politics." SUCCESS. Under a spreading . chestnut 4r?e the village blacksmith Hes In a com fortable hammock smoking a two-for n-quartor cigar. His name te Matthew McNulty, and the chestnut tree stands tn front of his cheerful farmhouse Just outside Lafayette, Ind. Day in, day out from morn till night aa the poet sung, you could hoar McNulty*s bellows roar, for nearly sixty years-If you . stuck around that long: During tha?e years ho shod more than half a million horses and mules. He used to have a monopoy on shoeing tho tow-path : mules that hauled the canal boats be tween Lafayette and Toledo. McMulty baa retired now, with a ' fortune of $40,000 and a farm, over 'and above Ahe good riving he's made In his blacksmith shop all these years. And It'd a safe bet that no retired city banker or merchant gets move satisfaction out of his career and lita' millions than McNulty gets out ot hts anvil memoria . hts little farm and his Forty Tbt'vssd. NMJTR/ LITT. At the convention of the Gencan Amenican National Alliance In Son Francisco, Dr. C. J. Mexamer Ita pres ident ?..imotwtrated the genuine ncro irai Hy of tho organization as follows: "I do not want to he prophetic, bi t I believe that tho future will prove us right f?j?W???j?, ?a* must conic when the American, even the holdout Anglo-American, will ud mlt thut the German-American "is the mont Americanized and therefore tho most human of ull neutral American citizens." And he capped his argument with th?- words: "Hall and victory to German and Austrian arms on the seas, on land and In the air." After that but bu mt, when Dr. fleas mor adds. "I must say that I have been proud of my country lately," a plain American who can never hope to rise to such hyphenated heights of neutrality may be for?lven for asking, "Which country?" AUTOMOBILE SPEEDING. ^Several complaints have already bren hoard on the a.reels in regard to thc reckless driving of automobiles, which seems now to be getting an every day occurrence in Anderson. At tills particular time, when many of tho streots are torn up because of the street paving and traffic be comes isomewhat congested on certain sections of the open streets, more caution than ever before ought to be taken by automobile drivers. A lit tle extra precaution will not cost much and probably mean the avoid ance of serious accidents. On the main streets of tho city automobiles aro seen running at a very rapid rate every day, especially at night itbne. Some of the streets ure taken for regular speedways and someone is going to run a little too fast some of these nights and thereby cause a serious accident. Anderson baa been very fortunato In thc past In not naving serious' auto mobile accidents, and much of this is duo to the "drive to tho right" signs and the vigilance of the police. Tis summer timo now and the peo plp are having a good time, but they must not forget that by running their automobiles at a reckless speed they not only endanger their own lives but thoso of others also. They do not moan to speed and be reckless, but it they do forget, the police will have to kindly tell them that ?iey are hav ing too good a time and are not thoughtful enough of tho value of hu man lives. ANONYMOUS COMMUNICATIONS. The Intelligencer takes the trouble to print each day at the top of the first column of the editorial page this notice, among others: " Anonymous communications will not be noticed." And yet in spite of this we receive frequently items of nows and articles tn tho nature of statements setting forth views of the writer on some subject which arc not accompanied by the name ot the person writing or sending in the same. In view of the rule of this paper to discard anony mous communications, Uieso unsigned news items, announcements, state men ta etc. fail to appear In the columns of the paper. And no doubt persons sending in such items "get sore" when tiley fail to see them in print, never knowing that lt ls a'rigid rule ot all newspapers to publish ho article of which the author is not known. The Intelligencer does not require the names ot authors of communica tion.) tor the purpose publishing the writers' name, but must havo tho names aa an evidence of good f:-'th In other words, wo have to know whether the author of a communica tion ia a responsible person and that what he writes ls trustworthy. It ls simply h precaution that all newspa pers are forced to take, and one that they adhere to rigidly the country over. Some days ago we received a com munication in which a vitrollo attack was made upon a merchant of Ur!? city by one who signed himself mere ly "Anderson MUI Worker." As this paper does not knowingly publish ar ticles of a defamatory ^nature, even when \h?y are accompanied by the signature of the author, this com munication, ot cours?, found its way Into the waste basket We bave before us at present a communication reading "Dcatb of John M. Jolly." The artirie ls a, proper one for publication, so far as we know, but there is no mark shoat lt to Indicate Its authorship. As uh terned communications of any and All sorts s re consigned to the waste basket immediately upon receipt, this would be the natural course this com munication would take. But we are making an exception In thia ins rance, for we realise that the article, which concerns the death of a good cltlson, ought to be published. We will hold lt until tho author of the article makes himself known to ns, and then we wEl proceed to print U. But under ?br rule ot. rejecting. all unsigned com ?uaicat?ons-a rule .which ts adhered to most stricOy-we cannot publish lt uutll the aulbor ia known. IPIIOLDING OL'lt CITIZENSHIP If un iiiiiii'/-.rant wants to go back j and fight for hts fatherland, that iu ! nobody's business but his own. Hut < If be &9 4n the way of becoming an American citizen lin must start ali over ugaln when he returns to Amer ica. This ffcet, important to hundreds of thousands of men from many lands, ls j,dinted out by the federal depart ment of labor in a recent announce ment. Our laws provide that an ap plicant for citizenship must have re sided In tho UnSTed .States for live years confnuously Immediately pre ceding tlie filing of hi j final petition. The courts arc holding that absence from the country for the sake of per forming military duty in a foreign land breaks that continuity. They hold, further, that thu original decla ration of the immigrant of his Inten tion to become a citizen ls "vitiated" by the oath of allegiance to a foreign soverlgn which ls required in all, or nearly all, European armies. The ruling 1s not made expressly to meet conditions of the present war. It Is based on a judgment handed down in the case of a Greek who de clared his intention of becoming an .\merlcan citizen on July 6, 1909, and then returned to Greece in December, 1912, to fight in tho second Balkan war, remaining there until March, 1914. Ho ho not disqualified from becoming a citizen, but hie citizenship ls delayed five years. This is an admirable policy. It tends not only to uphold the value of American citizenship, which many new-comers regard too lightly, but it emphasizes the fact that this nation baa no connection wt;h Hie Euro pean war, and neither directly nor Indirectly lends' any sanction to par I tlctpation in it A LI N E I o' D O P E \ The following; tourists, travelling by motor cars, stopped over at Hotel Cbiquola last night: Mr. and Mrs. J R.

The speed was great and he was very enthusiastic about his prize but when he awoke he was j morely riding along on the fire truck, a ga,3 concern, but not a motorcycle. Probably the best , one is told by Cart. Rowen. He dreamed that he was riding along on a perfectly good road when all at once he saw some holes ahead of him and forgetting that he was on a motorcycle and not on an interurban car, he turned on the gas. thinking he was signalling tho motorman to Blow up, and the speed was greatly increased. FaBter and1 faster went the motorcycle until at j latat it crashed into a telephone post. Daddy Bowen woke up with a start, but instead of having been hurled through space of the contact o" the motorcycle and the post, he had only fallen off one of the seats at tho in terurban Btation where he had been talcing a little nap.

In a Churchyard. How often have t stood with bared .head at the grave, of Hamilton, in the old Trinity churchyard on .Broad way! The thick-huddled gravestones seemed to elbow each other for lack of room. Tho eternal sleep of Hamil ton wss not disturbed, by the eternal roar of traille In the.streets, for Ham ilton loved big business and the sound of it cculd only be music in his ears. The slender spire of the old cathedral pointed upwards to tho Broadway patch of sky like the f?E-?e? of some marmoreal saint. from the bottom of sn abyss; for everywhere tho toppling architecture of commerce with its myriad framed, windows,' like .Argus tn spectacles, looked down on the lit tle church, and Us little steeple, add its little graveyard, and ita little head stones-all little and all looked down upuon save, to me, the big memories of the past.
