S. C. as 2nd class matter.
Friday, February 4, 1916.
We judged from Governor Manning's j
nnnwi +r> tho lpeislature a,nd all that
has been said in reference to the asy-1
lum that there had been a great saving:
in the maintenance of tne institution,
but we notice from the appropriation
bill that the expenses are greater than
they were before and greater this year
than last year, and greater last year
than tne year before and ihe number
of patients is about the same. Certainly
the appropriation bill does not
show any material reduction in the
amount appropriated for maintenance, j
A few years ago we visited tne institution
at Morganton, X. "C., and the
cost for maintenance there was about
$150 to $160 per year per patient, and
if we read the figures correctly the
cost in this state is something over
$200 per patient per annum. But
whatever is necessary for the proper
and humane care or tne pauenis .
should be given.
The little disturbance down in
Charleston over the election in that
> * -3
city cost the state about ten tnousanu
dollars, so Governor Manning says,
and he borrowed the money to pay
the bills and asks the legislature to
reimburse the banks. Of course this
will have to be paid. >
The Herald and Xews publishes in
" this issue the Newberry county supply
'bill as introduced in the legislature
by the Newberry delegation, and, of
course, as it will he enacted into law
unless changed or amended by the
It will be seen from an examination
of the appropriations made that the
total is something over $45,000 and the
levy is only three and one-half mills.
This levy will raise about $25,000. The
~fViQ fin.?c iinri 1 i

ceases will scarcely amount to $5,000,
but suppose they do, that will give
only $30,000, an amount some $15,000
short of the amount appropriated.
The Herald and News man never
, claimed to be much of a business man,
but we can't exactly figure out just
how it i6 expected to meet an appro
priation of $45,000 with, an income of
$30,000. We would be glad to see the
members of the delegation cipher it
out. Borrow money, we suppose, is the
solution, but it will have to be paid
some time or other and the people will
have to pay it, and the interest as
well. That may be good business, but
it does not appeal to us as good business
for a county to raisa less revenue
than it takes to run the business of
the county. - le longer t'nis policy is
pursued the bigger the debt will get.
The county is now without money and
running on a credit.
The Record publishes a statement
from a prominent lawyer quoting the
state constitution on the subject of j
holding more than one office. He also
quotes some of the opinions of the attorney
general's office on the subject.
The English language could not be
plainer than that provision of the con
stitution in regard to members of the

<. comprehensive, but what's the difference?
The members of the legislature
pay absolutely no attention to it, and
the people approve their course by
continuing to elect them. Ho 'nades
with the constitution when it suite
their convenience to let it go there.
But the public conscience is getting
aroused. It may be a small thing, but
the violation of the oath of office in
small things is just as much wrong j
as in large things. The day of reckon- \
ing will come. The governor and ITni-1
ted States sena'oi and senators and
representative? pay no heed to this
provision of the constitution. But we
hear in loud acclaim that this is a law i
and order administration.

Col. John K. Au 11 of Columbia, who
is secretary to the state warehouse;
commissioner, Hon. John L. McLaurin, i
said this morning before returning to
his home, that he felt that he expressed
the sentiment of every mem-1
ber of Newberry lodge when he repeat-I
ed what was said by Mr. Fred H. Dom
inick at the meeting last night, that; 1
they appreciated sincerely the cordial i
reception and royal entertainment by (4
the members of Greenwood lodge and
the citizens of Greenwood. I
"Greenwood knows how to do things
like this." he said. "She is not
only one of the most progressive towns
in the State, but she has a reputation _
which she ably sustained last night
for gracious hospitality." i
The ritual lesson by Mr. Aull was
one of t'ne most impressive and beautiful
parts of the ceremony last night
and the parts taken by Messrs. Harry 1
W. Dominick, C. Forrest Summer and'
E. H. Aull were ably sustained. J
Greenwood is a good town and a
li'V-e and progressive town. The vis-:
iting Elks were royally entertained
by the men of Greenwood and the
town has the air of prosperity about;
it and there are evidences of that
spirit which makes a good town. (The j
people talk Greenwood and have some-1
t'ning good to say about the place and '
the people. You never hear <them say I
or hint anything but what is to the i
advantage of the community and the people
who live there.
/There are two handsome office buildings
in the city, wit'n electric elevau/r
and steam heat and all the conven- j
iences of a modern office building,)
something that Newberry greatly j
needs. We have often wondered why |
some of our men who have money did .
not get together and build a modern
office building in this town of New-1
berry. It would pay as an investment
and be worth more as an asset for;
the community than as an investment;
and would pay good dividends in that!
Then Greenwood has one of the best
hotels in the Sojith and it is run right|
up to the minute, and it is a great
asset for the town and keep6 people [
talking nice things about Greenwood, j
In fact the hotel has done more to
put Greenwood on the map than any
other one thing that the town has'
*n-er done.
There is co-operation in the town
and in fact that seems to be the slo-,
^an. The key note of the remarks of,
Mr. Tillman is assuming the duties1
of head of the new lodge of Elks em- j
r'nasized that slogan?co-operation?
as an essential for the soiccess of the
lodge. It is the 6logan "that spells
success for any community.
The new lodge is composed of good j
men and true ami it is obliged to sue-!
ceed. especially with the slogan of
co-operation. The Newberry boys ap
preciate the kindly treatment they re-;
ceived and will ever look with inter-,
est at the success of the Greenwood
lodge. All cur boys thoroughly en-1
joyed their trip to Greenwood. I
>0. l Xownsnjp convention. i
The Interdenominational Sunday
School convention of No. 1 township
was held last Friday night in the Aveleight
Presbyterian church wit'a Mr. J
John H. "Wicker, township chairman,;
'Aill the Sunday schools of the township
were represented except the following:
Mission church, A. R. P.; j
F.hpnezp.r Methodist: Maver Memorial,
Summer Memorial, Lut'neran, and 'St. j
Luke's, Episcopal.
The subjects arranged on the pro-;
gram for the meeting were discussed
with interest. j
In view of the absence of delegates
from some of the schools of .he town
ship it was unanimously decided to:
hold another township meeting before
the state convention in Charleston in
).\luy, in order t'nat all the schools may;
be represented, thus conforming to'
one of the requirements to attain to
the "gold star'' county, ffhe selection
of the time and place was left to the
executive committee.
