Col. E. H. Aull in the -Newberry
tjerald and News comments upon the
gate of Ifce press association conflicti?f
wiik the commencement of NewX&JJJ
college. (Newberry college comjSieM^ment
is in the forenoon of WedjEtg&gay
and the press associationj
^pjieting commences that night. There
do conflict. The dates were made
to suit the invited speaker who is
coming from the Pulitzer 'School of
Journalism.?Columbia Kecoro.
iWe meant no word of complaint because
the press association meets, the
tame week of the Newberry commencement.
We had no doubt that
the committee had good reason for
changing the date. We have had
some little experience in trying to
dodge conflicting dates and know
.^someth^ag of what a difficult thing it
We wer? just regretting that we!
could not be at the meeting. j

in attendance upon the sessions
-than we have. In fact we haye mis.

ilanning in. the August primaries. He
says the Manning sentiment is growig,
in the county and that Cooper will
"'tail' the ticket in this county. The
Record does not give the name of this
prominent farmer. '.Possibly he knows
what the voters will do but if he does
he is. about the only one that we have
beard could tell the result, of .a. primary
election .before the votes were
counted. And a man with that great
Tision of the future should let Ills,

This reminds us that the Press and
? Banner says: "Get?. Maiming corries

He got off tie train at Spartanburg
Saturday -an his way to Charlotte
and carried It again."
The editor will be away for this issue
of the .paper and he has left it
in the hands of the "kid" and we have
decided that he just as well learn
now as later. We will be back in the
office on ^Wednesday.
Editor Aull of the Newberry Herald
and News says he had two or
three bales of cotton last fall and
cut them in a warehouse and borrow
ed money at six per cent, interest
just to find out the "sensation" of
paying six per cent, interest. Editor
Aull says he has been paying eight
and ten per cent, interest so long
tbat it really was a diversion to be
able to borrow money at six per cent
Well, people who haive cotton to
warehouse do not constitute the only
class that is going to enjoy six per
cent, money in the South. .Unless all
the signs fail, in & short time business
men as well as farmers will foe
borrowing for six per cent, or less.

sixty thousand dollars from a local
bank at two and one-half per cent
That is an indication of plentlfulness
of money.?'Rock Hill Herald.
We "believe that you are correct 1
Our county bororwed money for the
county for less than two and a half
per cent., it seems to us, and borrow
ed it from tne locai i>anK. inheres;, j
rate is too high and it is coming lower.
We believe the next legislature :
will make the legal rate six per cent.
but in that case it would be Just as ,
-.veil to make i; sere :. The legal r.ue 1
now is seven but all of us little fej- j
iows who keep the big ones going pay i
eight per cent.
We are pleased to see that Sena
tor McLaurin is discussing some matters
pertaining to the tax question.
The legislature will pile up the assessments
and the expenditures just'
so long as it is "possible without increasing
the levy, and go to the exj
tent of borrowing money to do it, and
then come back and tell the dear people
that the taxes have not been increased
because the levy is the same.
And there are a lot of fool people
who will swallow it at a gulp.
j expenditure of the money is what
(tells. The expenses have doubled in
ten years and the tax levy remains
very nearly the same. That is the
reason we have somewhat modified
our views on the question of requiring
all property to be returned at its
cash value. If the txable property
were six JiuDdred million instead of
three hundred million there are members
of the legislature who would be
willing to make appropriations and
increase useless offices so long as it
fcould be done without raising the
ii?w on/i trv to fool themselves
into the belief that they had not increased
taxes. We have ljfeen creat-.
ing entirely too many departments
any way .'.We would li*.e to see that
llst^pTN^fficers and boards printed and
what they art receiving. It would

pay the commissioners of public works

"Velivet" rubber of 1916, stretches
like a pure rubber baud over such

"with a minimum of friction for maximum
traction. While this color-combination
now distinguishes the appearance
of Diamond tires, motorists
must not conclude that all black- ,
treads, or all red-sided tires, are of
velvet rubber.
"Because?any ordinary rubber can
be Colored to imitate the appearance
of Diamond treads, without in any
sense imitating the texture, con^poei- :

Presbyterian (ieneral Assembly Re
aiiirms Decision?Much to l ]
Discretion. j
Orlando, Fla., l.M'ay 25.?The 50th! v
general assembly of the Presbyterian | e
church in the United 'States today j \
stood solidly on its decision reached l
Tuesday regarding woman's activity 1
pi the church, cleared some routine
matters and adjourned.
The woman question was reopened
in form of a protest backed by about
^0 commissioners and led by Dr. W.
|McF. Alexander, the retiring moderator.
The protest committee request ?d
that -its statement of disagreement '
merely ;be filed in the records of the
assemfoly, but the commissioners re*1 i
fused to do this, voting to refer the
matter to a special committee. Thisr
committee reported within a short
time, clearly setting forth. that it was::
hoUovftH thp action itaken was strictly''
according to the Scriptures. It was
adopted, 118 to 9.
The protest resulted from the as
sembly granting certain privileges to
women in the discretion of congrega- 1
tions. It was declared that too great
latitude was given congregations in a!
matter the protest&nts believed .<
should he left to the assembly. The ;
answer to this protest submitted by>
the special committee follows: 1
"In answer to the protest signed by W.
MdF. Alexander and others, the assembly
expresses its regret that !
any of its members should even lnti- .-5
mate that any action of the highest 4
murf nf the church was not governed i
by whole hearted loyalty to tke Holy J?
Scriptures as the only infallible rule '
of faith and practice.
"The scriptures may have their air- '
thority discredited not merely by a|]
violation of their procepte, but also '
by an attempt on the part of ecclesistical
courts to "bind the conscience e? '
God s people on matters ef doubtful

of their services in the very matters ~
comtfialried^ of. An almost patnful '
difference of opinion a6 to the mean
ing of the passages cite'd in the protest
is manifested tin the three
variant reports of the ad interim
committee. These things combined '
demonstrate the wisdom of the action
of the assembly dn declining to make
these passages the basis for detailed :
legislation. '
"Having expounded the settled faith j
of the church as to the teachings of '
the scriptures forbidding preaching
by Tfromezl, tfce assembly as -wisely. 3
decided to leave .the question of the J -
service of women in other matter* to
the discretion of the session!.
"Such action, in the Judgment of
this assembly, exalts the authority of
the word of God and removee the
anomaly of the church having madel
deliverances, and at the sam?e time
encouraging through, its authorized '
agencies practices iff violation of
these deliverances."
*Canyimf the State**
Abbeville Press and Banner.
Governor Manning carries the
State almost every day now in hi*
race for reelection as governor. He
got off at Spartanburg Saturday on
his way to Charlotte and carried it
again. He had -the -whole thing sew- :
ed up in the Democratic convention j
la Columbia, according to the newspapers
which are supporting him. Or
to express it according to their manner
of saying it, he "controlled the
convention." Very well. We are
glad, too, that the convention was
kind to (Messrs. Clinkscales, Pollock
and Jennings. When the people talk,
who cannot be controlled, Cooper will I
* - --? iV- ^_ J +V.?il
D me governor 01 iuc ou*lc, auu
other boys of 1914 will have some- j
thing ipleasant to think about.
As strange as it may seem, the,
Manning people admit that Cooper
had about one hundred friends in the
convention. These voted to elect
the Manning men to the national
convention, and along with them they
voted for Manning. The Blease element
even voted for Manning but did
you hear of Manning showing any
disposition to send a Cooper man or a
Blease man to the mational convention?
Not much, they don't do things
that way. They believe in taking the
whole hog. They "control." But the
people "will not be "controlled." All II
the office holders in the State, ana a!2 'I
:he machine politicians in the State fc
will not stop the people of the State I
n their march to seize the reins of I
ie government again.

now have an account amounting to j
$1,000 upon wiiicli interest will be
paid. Formerly $50# was the maximum
amount he could have to his j
credit. This enlargement of postal'
savings facilities will be very gratifying
to thousands of depositors who'
have already reached the old $500
limit and are anxious to entrust more
of their savings to 'Uncle Sam. Another
feature of the amendment that
will avoid further embarrassment to
the public and to postal officials is the
doing .a'way with the limflt on the
amount , that could be accepted from
