(A. fine closing of a successful year
in the O'Neall school on last Saturday.
The school has been taught the
past year by Mr. Will Ukiills and Miss
Setzler and there have been over 80
children enrolled. They need another
teacher. The children did credit to
themset.es and their teachers and
such a crowd and such a dinner as
was spread under those oaks one
rarely e.joys.
No wonder a lot of people don't see
the auto stop signs at the corhers?
they are usually hidden in a maze of
tobacco, cigarette, soap, soda aad
other ?igns that our merchants have
allowed traveling men to tack up.

Sometimes it is a good thing for a
preacher to spring a debatable question
in his sermon. It puts people to
thinking and when they think, they
"nearly always talk and when they
talk, they often convince those who
engage with them in conversation. At
the Church of the Redeemer Sunday
night, Rev. Pulenwider asked the
question and answered it in the negative,
"Can a Bad Man Perform a Good
Deed, in the Sight of God?"

In Judge Player's court last Saturday
there was a civil case in which

Esq., of Greenville. After hearing the
case Judge Player rendered his decision
in favor of the plaintiff C. R.
Rucker for $19.75 against the defendant

Let's Fight Fairly.
-Ilie Piedmont believes in fair play.
It also believes that any oiher kind
is sure to react and i: jure those who
indulge in it. This paper does no: I
take sides as between candidates with- j
u the Democratic party. That is a |
fixed policy with The Piedmont.. V.i! |
paper stands squarely for definite i
principles. Naturally it feels kindly j
to candidates who espouse those principles.
but it will not allow that ki. d-!
ly feeling to lead it to depart from its j
impersonal editorial attitude or to be j
unfair to those who fight the princi-!
pies it champions. That is our ideal i
of the proper course for a newspaper
to pursue.
Many newspapers in this State honestly
believe in their duty to the public
to take sides as between candidates
within the party, ilhey would I
sin against conscience if they failed j
to do so. We have no quarrel with
these who have a conception of the j
functions of a newspaper which dif
ters irom ours. j
However, we think direct newspaper
support or opposition to a candidate
cuts little figure in determini.-g
his fate in tlie primary. If the opposition
be unfair, however, it acts'
contrary to the intention cf the editor i
directing it.
This week's Abbeville Medium fur-1
nishes an illustration of the point we j
are making. In it the assertion is,
made that in Newberry the adherents
of former Governor Bleace "had
things all their own way" in the
county convention Monday and "ran
the 'steam loller' over the other
crowd." Fairness required that in that
same editorial a statement should
have been made cf the fact that before
the election of delegates to the
Newberry convention was held the
Blease leaders in that county went to
the chieftains of the other faction and
offered to make a division of delegates
in the contention and to sit
down on efforts to raise partisan
nnp<jti<v:? This offer was refused by
the anti-Blease leaders, who believed j
they could again dominate the New- j
berry convention this year as they did j
two years ago. If there was factionalism
in the .Newberry convention,
it seems to The Piedmont thatthe
responsibility rests upon those
,who refused the proffered olive
We are going to have hot politics in
South Caroling this year, but, if we

a 'Single Case.
Philadelphia Ledger.
This is, indeed a big age. A few
days ago it was announced that fee
of $100,000 has been allowed to A. H. I
Winterstee.:, one of Philadephia's |
ablest lawyers. That was for his services
to the Harrah ..state.
Other lawyers tell me that, large as
that fee appears to a laymen, it is j
quite moderate considering the va'ue;
of the estate involved.
"Nearly a century ago Daniel Web-;
ster made upward of $7.">,000 out of
one case which ran over a number of
years. For his day Webster was a
heavy charger.
Alexander Hamilton was surely one
of New York's leading lawyers dur-1
ing the last half dozen years of his 1
nfo v?nt hp neiver made more than!
$14,000 in 3 year, and his average was
about $12,000.
Thomas Jefferson himself put it on
record that be earned about $3,000
a year shortly after being admitted to j
the bar.
Tradation has it that Roscoe Conklin
was the first American lawyer to
make $100,000 in a year. He did that
after his quarrel with the president
and his retirement from the United
States senate. Unless reports are all
awry a Philadelphia lawyer has made
several times that much in a year. J
