The subscribers of The Herald and
News whose time has expired should b
renew promptly so as to receive every
issue of the paper containing the stcry e
which begins in the paper today. It
is an intensely interesting story and f
you will not care to miss any number, t
and, in order to be sure to receive each
issue, it is important to renew prompt- e
ly, for sometimes we can not furnish '
back numbers. -
The question of the place for the
holding of the next National Demo
cratic convention is being agitated. Ef- f,
forts will be made to have the conven- s
tion meet in Baltimore. We would be V
very glad to see it held in Baltimore.
The News and Courier says that the A
cooking In Baltimore is the best in
the United States, outside of Charles- f
ton, of course, *and that Baltimore is
within easy reach of the capitol and n
is cool in summer and besides is near a'
a number of popular summer resorts.
These things should have large weight 1i
in settling where the convention is to t<
be held. v
MENACE OF GRADE CROSSINGS.
The tragic death of that little school
boy in Newberry last week, crushed
to death beneath a Southern freight
train, again brings to mind the hor
rible m,enace of grade crossings in
towns. So long as we neglect enforc- r
ing the proper precautions, so long
will -we be somewhat responsible for
such things.-Greenwood Index.
the thing is coming. Grade cross- t
ing must go (except ia Newberry, iti 0
The toll of these grade crossings is
a heavy one and will go on being heav- k
ier from year to year, and they should Jp
be abolished not only in the towns and t~
cities, but in the country as weill, and n
no opportunity to be rid of them shouldh
be a;l'lowed to knock at the door of the t
public un.heeded. r
Comptroller General Jones is get- pl
. ting to be vigorous in his efforts to.3
hav'e those liable to the income tax ISi
to come across. He is going to recoin- gs5
mend to the governor the removal of
all 'auditors who do not compl-y with Jha
his instructions. rc
We are very much 'afraid that the
; governor will have several auditors to
remove, if 'he obeys the recommend a-1g
tion of~ the comptroller general. The
>tax problem is' one of the most intri
cate connected with the government,
and we doubt very much if South Car
'olina was ready just yet for an in-b
come tax law, but, of course. the best'N
way to settle that question is to have
the law enforced rigidly, if it can bes
done. The income tax payers, how-1 it
ever, or those liable to the income tax,1
are not the only ones who do not pay C
their equitable share of the taxes. Ef- SI
forts were made some years ago in
the egislature to get through a bill'
providing for an equitable assessment
of property but it failed. A reform c
of this kind must come slowly. at
