AS TO COUNTY FMANCES.
The Herald and News has re
frained from making any commen
on the financial condition of thi
county. The presentment of th,
grand jury and the statement o
Supervisor Schumpert were printed
We believe, however, in giving jus
tice to every one and showing par
tiality to none. The editor of thi;
paper told the p-ople in the cam
-paign of 1902 that there was n<
chance for a redtztion oi taxatiot
and endeavored t;a show why ther
Now T. J. W. gets after th<
supervisor and says its a great pit:
the financial -onditici of the count;
is what it is and sa the peo
pie do not object to paying out thei:
money when they can see where i
has been wisely spent. To both o
these propositions we readily assent
But let us be just. It is our opinioi
that it was a waste of public monel
to put sewerage in the basement o
the court house, but it was prope:
to have the sewerage put in th<
jail anc the rcoms up stairs to th<
court house. The grand jury get:
after the supervisor for this expen
diture. It may be too large for th(
work that was done and certainl3
so large a contract should not hav<
been let without first adverlisinf
for competitive bids. But, is it no
a fact that the grand jury at pre
vious terns of court recommende(
this work to be done? We say le
us be just in our criticisms.
The last legislature provide(
$io,ooo for past indebtedness and .
special tax was levied to inec
this. That leaves the debt $1 2,000
Now what is this for and wliat i!
there to show for it? There is tht
steel bridge in tle lower part of ti
county which was an expenditur<
which will benefit the people of the
county. Then there is the good
roads machinery which if properly
handled willl not be a waste o
money but a profitable investment,
Then there is something to showv
We do not pretend in this article
to he accurate and neither are we
defending Supervisor Scltmpert,
but we do believe in being fair and
just. There is something to show
for this debt. Whether theexpen
diture was wise or not iay be
lai gely a matter of opin ion. The
Herald and News thinks it wvas
wise to build the steel bridge men
tioned. We do not think that we
were just in a position to buy good
roads machinery because we had
not provided the means to operate
it, andl yet if properly used it is a
goodl inv'estmient. We think we
went at it a little too strong in the
matter of sewerage, and certainly
compjetitive bids should have been
As to the other charges against
Supervisor Schumipert, we have nc
knowledge: upon wvhich to base ar
We would not have said anything
but for the criticism of T. J. W.
But let us be lair ando just and give
to every one the same consideration:
we would expect for ourselves.
THE CHAItLESTON SITUATION.
The board of (directors of the dIis
pensary have taken a proper course,
undler the circumstances, ill with
holding the share of the dlisp)ensar)
profits accruing to the city of Char
lestoni andl applying this money tc
tihe en forcement of the law in that
city. And1( thiiis sameIn cou rse shou ld
be p)ursued with any other city oi
town w'here there are wvillIful viola
tions oif the law, upheld by public
Hentiment, putt ing,h St ate to
great deal of exp~ense ini thle effort:
to en force the law. Th'le boardl is
right ''that the school fund shiould
not Allffecr for thle volatt .ion s t i
law and inaction of the local author
ities, but that * * * the of'anding
locality should pay the expense in.
- curred, ahd that this burden should
not fall upon other sections of the
State where the law is enforced and
t obeyed, and where the local au
thorities give their assistance and
moral support in the enforcement of
The law has never been enforced
in Charleston, and it never will be
enforced there until public senti
ment demands its enforcement and
the municipal authorities give their
efforts in that direction. The gov
ernor, bound by his oath, must seek
the enforcement of the law :n all
parts of the State, and under the
conditions prevailing in Charleston
the attempts which must be made,
even though they prove futile,
mean the expenditure of a large
wsum of money. It most certainly
would not be just to let the school
fund suffer the lossof thisextra ex
penditure when it is made neces
sary by the inaction and, it some
times seems, the opposition of the
local authorities. As the board
says, it would be unfair to those
communities which uphold the law,
many of them not approving it but
upholding it because law should be
upheld. There were only two
courses left. Either the governor
must abandon his attempt to enforce
the law in Charleston, or Charles
ton's share of the profits must be
taken and applied to the enforce
ment of the law inl Charleston. The
State board, very properly we think,
chose the latter course. The board,
however, in order that Charleston
might not be done anl injustice,
made its action only temporary,
requesting the Charleston city and
county authorities to appear before
the board on the 211nd of December
to show cause why lie action should
not be made perianilent.
