TUESDAY, JULY 25, 1905.
The Columbia correspondent of the
News and Courier in yesterday
paper states that in several of the
counties petitions are ready; for the
election on the dispensary but they
are being held up until Justice Pope
renders his decision in the Pickens
case which was before him at New
berry some weeks ago. They seem to
have overlooked the fact that Justice
Pope declined to hear the case and
ordered that the whole matter be re
ferred to a special referee to take
testimony and report Csn1 the facts to
the supreme court and that the case
be refererd to the full court. That
being the status of the Pickens case
not probable that a decision will
be reached until the la:ter part of the
year and there will be n' election
for some time in any of the counties
the decision in the Pickens case is
Mr. Archer. of Spartanbu!rg. be
ing commended because he would not
let any politicians speak at the farm
ers meeting in that county rerently.
The idea being sought to be empha
sized is thar the present farmers
movement is non-political and there
are to be no boosts given to ambi
tious politicians by permitting them
to address the meetings. The pur
pose in view is a good one, if it be to
keep office seekers from using the or
ganization to help them secure office.
but how are you to keep politicians
out and still have an organization,
we would be glad to have explained
apd besides we do not see how it
could hurt to have a man who has
held office simply to address -the
meeting. It may be that Mr. Mc
Laurin was the man the blow was aim
ed at. He is no avowed candidate
for office, if that is what is meant by
keeping the politicians away. If we
remember correctly the president of
the state orgaHization has been men
ticned as a candidate for a state of
'ce and that he has said that if the
call came he would heed the cries if
they were loud and long enough.
And the secretary has also been
mentioned and we are sure he w-ould
not turn a deaf ear to the pleadings
of his country men. Then there are
others who have been sent out to make
speeches who are listening for the
"divine call," as Col. ~Bacon says.
We are not criticizing the movement
or these men for we can see no harm
in their seeking political preferment
and at the same time addressing any
gathering of farmers or any other
set of men. We do not believe the
farmers or any other set of men in
this state just at this tinme will per
mit these poliiticians to ~ use their
organizations for their personal pre
ferment and - e can believe that a
man may be a candidate for high po
litical preferment and at the same
time be a gentleman and not attempt
to secure position by playing upon
the prejudices of any class of our
How are you going to have these
organizations without having a poli
tician in them and permitting him to
address the organization and why
should he be debarred. We can see,
no justice or sense in such a proposi
tion. Because a man makes a speech
}.a farmers meeting is no reason
those farmers are pledged to support
him for any position. The Yorkville
Enquirer asks what the association
wil! look like after the politicians
have been eliminated. The associa
tion has do'ne a good work and we
do not believe the farmers are going
to be used by any of the politicians
and if they waria to hear these poll
tricians speak let them hear them.

The car crawled slowly on, with an
occasional long pause at a threatened
breakdown. At*last an old man with
a long white beard rose feebly from
a corner seat and tottered toward the
door. He was, however, stopped by
the conductor, who said:
"Your fare. please."
"I paid my fare."
"When? I don't remember it."
"Why, I paid you wvhexi I got on the
car.' .. V

"At Nether Liberton."j
"That won't do! When I left Neth2' I

boy on the car."
"Yes," answered the old man, "I
know it. I was that little boy." t
