Twelve .Pages. Wednesday, Oct. 3, 1894. Escaping Censure. A wise man said: . "It It harder to avoid censure than It Is to gala applause, for this may be done by one wise or great action la a life time; but to escape (ensure a man must pass his whole life without Baying or doing one ill or foolish thing." If he bad lived In this section of the world, and had run a newspaper at this time, he would have said that "no man cas escape censure, if be aspire to be anybody atalh" Those persons who have no opinion of their own, or at least those who express no opinion in which they are not first fortified by the known esteem of some body else, seldom are oensured, though they may be held In very poor opinion by their neighbors. This Is true, no matter whether in the newspaper business, the church, in society, or elsewhere. There are but few born|leaders. Numbers, however, assume to be leaders, while there are an Innumerable company of "me toos." Of oonrse any resistance to the will of t^e leaders, or or the assumed leaders, mum oe crushed at whatever cost, and In order to Intimidate or subdue the more cringing multitude examples must be made of those who assume to do tbelr own thinking. In all the walks of life, whether In public business or In the church, there mast by acknowledged leaders, or else oonfuslon may (01 low. For this reason those who speak out, and talk or act In a manner which has not been suggested or directed by the real or assumed leaders, must be told to sit down must be censured. Perhaps for the organization of society it is well that the great number of unassuming people should be required to keep silent, or be subject to the pains and penalties incurred for refusing to follow after those who may presume to have exclusive right to freedom of thought and freedom of speech. No matter If a man should "pass his life without saying or doing one 111 or foolish thing," Jyet it Is morally certain that be will be censured. Those who misunderstand or misconstrue bis motives, or who may be fear jui iqhuamoioai aeiertoce oas not Dwn p*uu to their own superior ability and superlative excellence will assail the man who says anything contrary to tbelr views, and wblcn from tbelr standpoint may lack tbe required degree of subserviency. Tke State Newi. We present tbls week macb news of current vents In tbls State. Tbe accounts .of tbe Antl-Tlllman Democratic meeting and caucus yUl be read wltb Interest, and adds a chapter to tbe political history of tbe State. "Tbe Weather Report," including tbe crop prospects, are not without interest. "Tbe New Tariff," as discussed by tbe Hon. William L. Wilson, gives valuable Information on a subject that has been attracting widespread attention. "The Industrial South," throws light on matters to which the attention of all Southerners Is now directed. "One Year's Drinking BUI," will furnish a text for temperance people and phllanthrop. 1st*. N "The Nomination of Senator Hill, as Democratic candidate for Governor or New York," atteath the popularity of the distinguished Senator. "Thirteen Year's a Fugitive," furnishes one more proof thatonr sins will find us out. 'The Next Legislature," and the oomposlv . tlon of that body, shows who will likely make our laws next winter. ' "The Jewish New Year," Is a timely and readable article. "The Hurricane," and the damages which It did, are recited. "An Important Decision" on the school question Is noted, and commented on. "The Different Motives," which actuated the Governor In oertaln cases, are discussed. "Another Money Crop," and Jwhat will beoome of an lndlsoreet management of the onion crops, Is set forth. "The Bine Ridge Railroad," la receiving attention, and It now seems that the dream of half a century will be realized. The card of Dr. Sampson Pope, Independent Reform candidate for Governor, Is presented. These are some of the State matters that are presented this week, and the whole goes to make np an nnnsually interesting lot of reading. "Rural Democrat" is stirring np a hornet's nest, and It will be a wonder If somebody don't get tbelr "Irish" bp . The sermon on "Getting Ahead," may excite criticism. Georgia's good lock In securing a cotton mill is discussed by the Manufactures Reoord Dr. Pope's Candidacy. Dr. Sampson Pope, of Newberry, protests mai do is i candidate lor uovernor, uuu we preaame be really ia Id earnest. Id aome tbloga the Press and Banner believe* Dr. Pope ia rigbt, notably od tbe tariff. Bat be la decidedly off on the dispensary question, and If there were no other obstacle Id bla elevation to tbe office of Governor that - fact would bar him oat. There ia no sort of doabt that tbe people are bebind tbe dispenaary law. Dr. Pope labors nnder several other difficulties, In ao far aa this county is concerned: . * 1. Nearly everybody voted In tbe primary, and very few will vote oontrary to tbelr obligation to ataod by tbe nominations. 2. Oar people generally, have not endorsed lndependentlam, and we think Abbeville 1b a poor place for politicians who expect to gather up tbe soreheads and the odds and ends. 3. Od a dead level, tbe antls have about as little aae for Pope as for Evans. Pope la about tbe most vebement Reformer there la. 4. Aa between Reformers there la poweriul little cbolce for an antl, and It la quite doabtful If Pope will get hlB share of the unpledged antl vote. There was No Demand. . Some of tbe brethren of the press have been riianruuwt tn nenanra the News and Courier for Its efforts to defeat the nomination of a "True Demooratlo State ticket." Tbe Press and Banner believes that the News and Courier did right in opposing nominations. but if there bad been a demand from tbe people for a ticket, all the newspapers in tbe state ooald not bave defeated It The fact Is, as far as our Information or observation goes, there was little demand lor a ticket, and If one bad been put out it would not bave made a ripple on tbe political sea. The State newspaper has declared itself In favor of new oountles, and will henceforth help those needing new oountles. Removal or BMlnrsnt.
