the sentence of Major Black. He was
vindictively pursued, while others,
equally as guilty as he, was allowed
to go free. ?

some matters he said he would not

sion that he was wrong.

The Hranchville Journal says: R.
A. Williams has accepted a position
with the Southern railway at Or
angebu:-g. Formerly he was super
intendent of the coal chute and bag
gage master at Branchville. T. L.
Hutto is now filling the same posi
tion there. * ,
It is said the little Japs are jubi
lant o\ov the signing of the treaty
giving them the right to come to
this country without restriction. We
do not blame them, as the United
States made an unconditional sur
render of all her rights in the matter
of emigration of Japs to this country.
Ever since it was started a Repub
lican h is been at the head of the Col
ored S :ate College, and he has man
aged 1: well. As he has resigned,
why not try a good Democrat at its
head tor a while. We believe he
could nanage it just as good as the
Republican who is about to leave it.
The Times and Democrat has no
quarrel with anybody. Its subscrip
tion list is larger now than it ever
has been, and it takes all of its re
sources to publish such a newspaper
as thone who honor it with their pat
ronage is entitled to. The prosperity
of The Times and Democrat Is a
source of gratification.
A great many calamities could be
avoided It people would only remem
ber to do things that they ought to
do. In mines, on railroads and in
mills it is but little use having life
protecting appliances if they are
systematically disregarded. Proba
hly most of the accidents that occur
every year are due to this failing.
Every now and again some
learned professor or scientist raises
the question" whether it was an ap
?pie, orange or some other fruit that
Eve handed Adam. The question
can never be settled but there is no
uncertainty as to the fact that Adam
was willing to take the fruit and
that five got and still gets the blame.
(Senator Heyburn, the fellow in
t'he United States Senate who voted
against loaning Confederate veter
ans some old army tents, says he is

that he would not be where he is

Just as thoughtlessness of speech
and act is responsible for a good
deal of evil so carelessness in the
hand/ng of firearms, tools and other
things is responsible for the injury
or d?ath every year of very many
people. Those guilty of such care
lessness may and do express their
deep sorrow for the lamentable ore
Baits that often follow from that
carelessness, but no regrets can undo
the mischief done.
When money leads a man to com
mit suicide it is generally because
he has too little of it. But occasion
ally someone ends his life because
he ieels himself burdened with a
superabundance of wealth. It is a
very foolish and unnecessary thing
to. do for if a many feels that he has
too -nuch money there are plenty cf
people willing to relieve him of it.
But apart from that any wealthy
man may, if he will, find numerous
Channels along which he may let his j
wealth flow to carry blessings to his
neec'iy fellowmen.
The Times and Democrat wants it '
distinctly understood that it is uot
a Blease or any other man's orsan.
It the organ of the people of Or
angeburg county, and tries to hew to j
the line regardless of where the j
chip.5 may fall. The fact that it tries !
to treat the Governor fair, is no
rea?on why it should be insinuated
thai; The Times and Democrat is his
organ. While we shall endeavor to
irec.t him with the utmost fairness,
\gte- shall not hesitate to criticise auy
act of his that we think may be
detrimental to the people.
Should Be a Layman.
The president of the State Colored
College should be a layman and not
a preacher. By this we do not mean
any reflection on the ministry, for
whom we have the very highest re
i spect. This college is * public in
stitution and should b> conducted
Ion as near a non-sii Jarian basis as
[ possible, even in appearance. For
i that reason, and that reason alone,
j we think its president should be a
layman and not a preacher.
In convention with a colored min
ister some time a?o in mentioned
the name of Prof. C. G. Corbett, Jr.,
of Allen University, in Columbia, as
a good man for the place, but we
I have since learned that he was not
I an applicant for the position, and
was supporting a minister for it.
We understand that Prof. Barrett
!s a young man and we believe that
is the kind of a man that should be
selected as president of the State
college. But as he is not available
we will have to turn elsewhere for
a man.
Prof. N. J. Frederick, who- has
been supervising principal of the
Howard Graded School in Columbia
for colored children for several
years, is an applicant for president
of the State college, and from what
we hear of him, we believe he would
fill the bill. He is a well educated
man, and, having had hundreds of
children and fifteen or twenty teach
ers under him for years,, he mus: be
a good disciplinarian, which is one
of the requisites for r good presi
dent of a college.
Prof. Frederick is a son of the |
Rev. B. G. Frederick, of this county, I
who had the courage of his con vie-1
tions in the dark days of reconstruc- I
tion to act and vote with the while j
people in their effort to redeem and
save the proud old State from the
hands of the robbers and thieves
that had fastened themselves upon
her in those troublesome times. He
was true then, and he has been true
ever since. He was elected to the
legislature from this county on the
Wade Hampton ticket. Rev. B. G.
Frederick was a good Democrat
then and he is a gcod Democrat yet.
?Prof. N. J. Frederick, like his
father, is a Democrat, and when it
comes to honoring and elevating col
ored people the fact that they are
Democrats should not hurt, but help
them, all other things being equal.
Therefore, when the board of trus
tees come to elect a president for
the State Colored College we hope
they will give Prof. N. J. Frederick,
of Columbia, consideration. All the
older citizens know his father, and
they know that he is true, and the
son is tracking in his footsteps.
The Mileage Act.
In answer to our challenge that
"those newspapers that Iamenc the
fact that the legislature passed no
acts hostile to the railroads should
point out the need of such acts," the
Newberry Observer asks, "What
about the mileage act?" We believe
that the railroads, in consideration
of the fact that the mileage books
are sold at a reduces price, should
be allowed the privilege of adopting
such rules for their use as to them
seem best. No one is compelled to
use these mileage books, and those
who do not want to take the little
trouble that is necessary to exchange
mileage for tickets, and save the dif
ference in the cash of travel that the
use of mileage brings to them,
should be willing to pay cash for
their tickets or pay on the train.
The exchange of mileage for tick
ets reduces the cost of handling that
class of transportation to the rail
roads very materially, and .enables
them to issue them at the low rate
they do. Taking up mileage on the
trains consume much time, and
keeps the conductor from attending
to other duties on his train that
needs looking after. Then, too, some
times the delay caused in tearing out
the mileage prevents the conductor
In getting to all the passengers to
collect their fare. Xo doubt this
would often occur where the stations
are close together, as they are on the
Southern railway bet'veen Newberry
and Greenville. A conductor can
take up a dozen or more tickets
while he is tearing mileage out of
one book.
We believe that railroads should
be supervised by the State, and
made to give all reasonable conven
ience to the traveling public. But
at the sa"ie time, they should be
allowed to adopt all labor saving
devices, where they do not endanger
the life, limb or property of the pas
sengers they transport, so as they
can cheapen the cost of transporta
tion and freights to 'he general pub
lic. There is no use for hostile legis
lation when .none is needed. We
have had considerable dealings with
railroads and we have always found
them ready and willing to do the
square thing. We pay the railroads
considerable money in freights every
year, and we have always found
them ready to make good any losses
that may occur in the shipping of
eoods or the refunding of over
charges for freight. We think they i
should be treated with the same con- !
sileration that other enterprises
sideration that otherj enterprises
America's Permanent Government.
Few people are conscious that the
govprnment or cor? titution of the
United States is well-nigh the oldest
in the world. Of course everyone
knows that this is true as to this
continent, but not many think of it
as being true of other continents,
yet such is the case. A glance at the
history of other nations will show
that their governments or constitu
tions have undergone radical changes
since this country started on its ca
reer as an independent nation.
Italy, which then was but a "geo
graphical expression." is now one of
i the leading European powers. The
[German empire has come into being.
I The dual Austro-Hungarian mon
archy is on a vastly different basis
from what it was when this nation
was born. France has through many
trials passed from ':he absolution of
the Bourbons to the freedom of a re
public. Spain and Portugal have
?vitnessed many changes. Belgium,
Bulgaria, Servia and other natious
have been made independent, Russia
has at last a form of representative
government and even Great Britain,
the model of solidity and perman
ence, has altered, for the union with
Ireland in 1801 made a change in
both its constitution and its flag.
Turning to the supposedly un
changing Asia one is struck with the
transitions made during the last cen
tury. India, once under the control
of the East India company, is now
i crown colony. Japan has made a
"hange revolutionary In its charac
ter, Korea, the "hermit" nation, has
be^n absorbed by Ja nan as part of
*.he spoils of war, and even China, ap
parently so immovable, is waking up
and constitutional changes have al
ready besn made. All these facts
^o to show that in spite of the pre
vailing idea Americans are a conserv
ative people, and that they possess a
Strength of character and firmness
of conviction that ensures an un
broken continuity of government.
