A GOOD BOARD" The announcement in this issue of the personnel of the new board of county commissi oners should be gratifying to everybody interested in seeing the fiscal affairs of the county put ? ? ? -J i?/T'V A upuii a oUUu'J JLUC lV(5?ldU?B delegation was fortunate to have secured for the administration of the new law a board of successful business men?men of affairs who really crs ill afford to s>are the time nec essary to properly discharge the duties Sm pored upon them by the law. * *1 operly and efficiently administered, the new law should make for avast 'r.iprovement in the administra. . urn 01 county affairs. A necessary . .. , step :p the success of the law was the selection of a good board. This has been done. All that remains is for these gentlemen to work together in harmony, and we feel sure this will be done. LET US HOPE. Though thoroughly and, as we see it ^jow, perpetually, Democratic, we * cannot help hut wish success to the new administration which began Sfareh 4. Ever since his election Mr. v. Harding, it seems to us, has displayed the possession of sound common sense and a sense of the great responI sibility which rests upon him. It is j hardly to be expected that any course he may pursue will greatly strengthen his party in the South, but he can, t>y the exercise or good judgment in the selection of his appointees, create a feeling of greater respect for the G. O. P. in these parts. We are inclined to the opinion that he will be glad to avail himself of the opportunity. to show a friendliness for the I South yhich on more than one occa sion he has expressed. The greatest task at present confronting the administration will be the restoration of something like nor- i i mal business conditions. Whether or! not any governmental agency can ac- ! complish this remains to be seen, but surely some effort will be made. Tt may not be orthodox Democracy but j I \ ' it is certainly good patriotism to wish the administration well in any efforts it may put forth in this line. PLENTY OP TIME! It may be true, as Mr. Bryan claims, that the Democratic party is in need of reorganization, but it also ap pears, in the light of history, that Mr. Bryan is not the man to head the organization. His councils have never led the party to success. He may be, and doubtless is, quite sincere in his advocacy of some of nis policies, but he has never been able to convince a majority of the American people that he was a safe leads'' There is plenty of time to effect a reorganization of the party. The next few years will likely develop plenty of issues and may as well reveal , leaders more capable than the Nebisskan. MEW DCUCIAU liLVT ruuiun ACT IN FORCE I ' jh**' The pension law has again been .^hanged by the legislature in an act ! pjtssed at the reeen' re.-* ?n of he | legislature.
