Columbia Paper- Does Not Want Mr.
Mason (o Quit South Carolina.
(Columbia Record, .Ian. 17.)
We salute Senator Mason, of Oco
neo county. Ho is a man of a happy
and sound quality of mind. He is pal
pably not a "gloom," and moreover
he is courageous enough to get right
up in meeting and say his little piece
without wiggling or wobbling. That
is always the sort of man to whom
we delight to extend the glad hand
of fellowship.
Senator Mason is tired of listen
ing to the note of distress. Tho
croakings of the ravens of depression
are distressful io him, and ho is at
tempting to choke them off, in the
which commendable enterprise the
Record bids him ,:Ood-spoed." The
Senator knows that if you give a dog
a bad name, every chance passor-by
will give bim a swift kick. Some of
our notable statesmen and theorists
rose up on their hind legs at Wash
ington some month;; ago and howled
in such melancholic fashion that tho
impression is very widespread in the
East and all over tho country that
tho South is "broke." Newspaper
publishers have felt the effects of
this calamity howling on (hat occa
sion in tho reduced volume of adver
tising that is coming down this way
from the manufacturers of the East
and North. Manufacturers konw that
there is no use of wasting money try
ing to sell goods to self-confessed
Senator Mason has introduced n
resolution in Hie Senate deprecating
tho continued campaign of depres
sion. He wants tho Senate to resolve
"That no further resolutions of a
depressing and pessimistic nature bo
received in the Senate, but that such
resolutions be forthwith rejected and
not considered."
Dravo! We say it again. Senator
Mason talks Uko a real he-man. Also,
in ordor Hint It may be known that
bo probably has as much cause as any
to feel depressed, we want it known
that he is a farmer, tho son of a
farmer nod (he grandson of a farmer.
Ho says that if we keep on talking
"hard times" bc will have to move
Iiis family to Georgia or North Caro
lina. He shall do no such thing if we
can prevent him; we need him and
people like him right here in South
Carolina too badly to permit him to
desert us.
