The State Ticket.
Superintendent of Education,
Two weeks ago the HEiuw op.
posed the nomination of Col. James
Farrow, of Laurens, for Superin
tendent of Education on the ground
that he "is well advanced in years
and is feeble in health, and we do
ti not think that he would bring to
the discharge of the duties of the
office the experience in that line of
work that would guarantee success."
For this the HERALD has been criti
cised very severely by the Laurens
ville Herald and by Col. Farrow.
As the election of Superintendent
of Education is over, and a further
discussion of the matter is unprofit
- able, we do not intend to say much.
We would like to print all the criti
cism ; but as there are about three
p.' columns of it we cannot do so,
crowded as we are wlth more im
portant matter. We will, however,
notice the different articles in their
- order.
The Laurensville Herald objects
to our saying that Col. Farrow is
"well advanced in years ;" and says
that he is fifty-four years old. It
further objects to our saying that
he "is feeble in health." We did
not say that Col. Farrow was too
old, nor that 'he was an invalid.
Col Farrow, then, is fifty-four. As
to his -health, we did not consult
him or his physician ; but judged
from his appearance and from the
fact that only two years ago he suf
fered something like a stroke of
The Laurensville Herald says:
"If the HEanL has an 'axe to grind,'
or prefers some other than Col.
Farrow, let it come out openly, and
work for the man of its choice."
This HEALn is not in the axe-grind
ing business-and it comes-out
Sopenly every Thursday morning,
advocating at all times what it be
lieves to be. for the best interests
of the people, and expressing freely
its opinions on all matters of public
concern. That it now and then
displeases some people we deeply
regret, but it cannot be helped: it
is one of the incidents inevitable in
the proper conduct of a newspaper.
We claim it as a privilege, and shall
exercise it, to express our opinion
as tothe fitness of any man who
aspires to a State office. It is all
right for the Laurensville Berald
to "claim that Col. James Farrow
is justly entitled-in view of his
entire fitness, and as 'the next high
est candidate before the Convention'
-to fill the vacancy now existing
on the State Ticket ;" but it is all
wrong for the Newberry Han to
claim otherwise.
Col. Farrow himself writes a long
letter to the News and Courier in
which the HERED~I is scored quite
severely. In this he falls into two
*big mistakes, which we correct by
saying, 1st, that the HERALD has no
"private ends to accomplish," and,
2ndly, the HEa&n did not say it
would be "a crime against the chil
dren of the State" to nominate him.
What it did say was: "The office is
the most important in the State,
and to allow any other consideration
than thorough efficiency to control
in the selection of the nominee
would be not only a serious mis
take, but a crime against the chil
dren of the State"-which is quite
a different thing. The News and
Courier completely answers CoL.
Farrow's letter, but as we have not
room for the letter we omit the
"Justice" writes a letter to the
Columbia Register, which bears
such a close resemblance to the
Laurenaville Eerald editorial, that
the same person. What is said
concerning the editorial applies,
therefore, to the letter.
And now comes the Lancaster
Ledger and says: "But what sur
prises us most is, that the editor of
the HERALD, who has been conduct
ing one of the best papers in the
State for twenty years, and has
always been in feeble health, should
arge such an objection to Col. Far
row." If the editor of the HEzRA.n
were a candidate for a State office
the state of his health might be a
matter of concern to the public.
As a matter of fact, however, the
editor of the Haan is not "in
feeble health," and never has been.
Grave Misapprehension.
The Newberry HERALD asks the fol
lowing pregnant question :
"Isn't it in violation of public poli
cy and immemorial usage for a State
officer to reveal the secrets of his office,
as the State Treasure did recently in
the Whites matter ?"
Our contemporary, it seems, as yet
to learn that the offise of the State
Treasurer is a public office, and as such
is not entitled to have any secrets of
record. Papers connected with the
proceedings of the Treasurer as a pub
lic officer of the State are not, in the
very nature of the case, secrets, but
records, to which the free citizen has
a right to have admission on respect
ful application. The government of
South Carolina is the government of
the people of the Commonwealth and
not of its officials, otherwise than as
the public servants of that Common
wealth. Such a government is not a
military organization or a Ku Klux
Klan or a secret association. It is es
sentially a "government of the people.
by the people and for the people."
When our cotemporary learns this
much of free government it will be
time enough for him to propound
questions to the enlightened freemen
of this State. Till then he should
tarry at Jericho.-Columbia Regis
The HEBar.D is probably as well
informed upon the status and poli
cy of this government as the Regis
ter is ; indeed it seems to be better
informed on one point. The Regis
ter does not appear to know the
difference between secrets of an of
fice and records of an office. The
bills found by a grand jury are
matters of record; the - evidence
upon which these bills are found is
a secret. The President's Cabinet
has secret sessions, and any Cabinet
officer who would reveal those se
crets would be summarily dismiss
ed. The Senate of the United
States and the Senates of the differ
ent States have secret sessions ;
and'any Senator who would reveal
those secrets would be liable to
impeachment. The Register must
have known that the HRRrn did
not refer to "records ;" for the
HaRRxn had already published ev
erything of record concerning the
Whites matter, and the Register,
we think, had copied the articles.
By "secrets" the HEAL.n meant,
and could only mean, the letters
and telegrams that were sent to the
State Treasurer by the Attorneys
for one of the bondsmen ; which
letters and telegrams, though form
ing no part of the "recorda" of the
office, were furnished to the Charles
ton and Culumbia papers.for publi
cation. If. a grand jury should
publish the information upon which
it acts it would soon find it very
difficult to get any information to
act upon; and there can be no
doubt that persons will be slow to
furnish to the State Treasurer such
info?nation as was furnished by
the said letters and telegrams if
they know that it is to be published.
It is in violation of public policy
and immemorial usage for a State
officer to reveal the "secrets" of his
office. And we believe the letters
and telegrams referred to were
A Correcuion.
We make it a rule to give proper
credit to all selected articles ; but,
by an oversight, failed to do so last
week in the case of the Register's
editorial on "Our school fund and
what it is accomplishing." There
were some typographical errors in
the article. In the sentence, "The
difficulty of spareness of population
to area in our problem of free edu
cation is 9j times greater than that
of Maryland," it should have been
2} instead of 9j. One sentence
reads, "But it eeems to us plain
that a people who find resort to a
given school ought to be willing to
do something to make it a shift ;"
it should have read "to make it a
good and sufficient one instead of a

Charleston's Trade Issue. by
The Charleston News and ('ou
rier, with characteristic enterprise, tha
isbued the 1st instant its.annual b
Trade Issue, reviewing the trade of a'1
Chat leston for the year ending that
I day. Notwithstanding the seve e mo
drought and the consequent short co
cotton crop and general falling off I
of trade throughout the Sonthern Cht
country, this Trade Issue wakes a tio
most gratifying showing for our
secnort city. The News and C'ou.
rier truly says: "The trade of the J.
city has been astonishingly good," in
spite of adverse circumstances. The sio
value of the trade of the year is an Aft
increase of $3,628,904 over the pre- su
ceding year.
The News and Courh r refers
with pardonable pride to the finan ho
cial policy of the present uunicipal
government. During the past year Pr(
the debt of the city has been re
duced $362,300. The debt now by
amounts to $4,264,050, has been Re
refunded to the extent of four-fifths rea
in 4 per cent. bonds, and the inter- qu<
est due in 1883 and 1884 hiis al f
ready been provided for. cor
The following from the News of
and Courier's editorial gives some or
idea of Charleston's business activ- drc
ity and prosperity : Lit
"The value of the trade of the year
is 874.839,904, against $71,211,000 ad
last year. In naval stores the receipts qu
of spirits of turpentine have increased an
from 51,386 casks to 65.000 casks, and adj
the receipts of rosin have increased
frtw 231,417 barrels to 256,000 bar' .
rels. The rtceipts of phosphate rock in |t
the year just closed were tlelargest ever wa
known, being 146,496 tons, against
108,183 tons in the preceding yeor. the
The whole amount exported and man
ufactured was 349.468 tons, against fnr
287,188 tons in 1881. I the lum- S
ber business the increase has been att
startling, the exports having advanced an<
from 18,610.857 feet in 1881 to 45,- us
000.000 feet in the year just closed div
In nothing is the progress of of
Charleston shown more vividly than ou
in the diversification of industries. lia
There vro in and around Charleston i,
to-day 138 factories of-different kinds, tea
employing 4.350 persons. with an an ly
nual product valued at $8,116,568.
This includes the fetilizer companies, o
11 in number, who ewploy 950 hands.
and whose products for the year are ct
valued at $2,562,000. During the Go
year an Electric Light Company has of
been. formed, and is nearly ready to tu
oommence operations. A Cotton Seed ral
Oil Company, and a company for the len
manufacture of lime, cement and tb
bricks, have been completed, and are a
at work. The Charleston Cotton Mill, be,
which has a capital of half a million Re
dollars, and will give employment to
a considerable number of persons, will
begin work very shortly, and in the
course of a few a nths will maake the se
city musical with the hum of 20.000 bo
spindles. The eapacity of the Bag
ging Fa.tory has been more th a
doubled, and in every department
manufacturing business there ares
signs of growth and development.
Truck farming continues to b 0
important branch of the trade 'o SO
Charleston. Hlandsome profits have,,
been realized in vegetables, the largest we
gains during the year being derivedse
from cabbages and potatoes. On two "
acres of laud near the city a profit of "i
$1,800 net was made on cabbages ye
alone. It is not surprising that land Sc
should in consequence be exceedingly Si
valuable. It will surprise a good n
many of our Northern readers to know er<
that land near Charleston prepared Mi
for truck:farming will readily bring in pa
the market aa much as $1,000 an
acre. go

for the office of County Treasurer. one who
is well known in th-- County. We refer to
MARTIN- H. GARY. He enlisted in the
Confederate Army when,a mere boy and
served his countsy faithfully until disabled
by the loss of an arm. We think when
our Coun.y can, in peace, reward those who
suffered in her defense during the days of
trouble and adversity it should certainly be
done. Others, perhaps. equally meritorious Co
as our nominee, will be in the. field, but we' IN
