Eclipsing every other subject for
onversatiou yesterday was the mat
er of tho street paving commission
Dd the effects the appointment of the
ommiBfllon would hare upon the re
nns of the election. There was con
lderanie disappointment on the part
f many that Alderman Harton wa?
ot elected us a member of this com
lisslon, on account of his experience
i handling such matters, and his good
usiness Judgment, and there were
?any who thought the matter of so
acting the chairman of the commls
lon should have been left to the tom
lisslon after they had organized,
'here seemed, however, to be general
atlsfaction over the personnel of the
ommisslon selected and it is believed
dat If the election carries some good
rork will be done. #
The Intelligencer, as was stated in
n editorial yesterday, ls of the opln
>n that the gentlemen selected will
o faithful and conscientious work,
nd that there saould he no question
f defeat for tho elections to be held
hortly on the ratification of the abut
ing property law, and tho consequent
ond issue to.make thia law available.
Tie paramount need for Anderson J-eA
ow ls street paving, and to secure
his the citizens must pull together,
t will be impossible for anything to
e done that will exactly suit every
erson Interested. A give and take
olicy must be adhered to, and if one
as a pct sctteme that ho falls to get
ecognlzed and acted upon, he should
ot sit down and do nothing. The plan
elected means disappointment to
ome one's else scheme, M
Anderson has been noted for doing
he thing that means permanent loss
a many instances. We need only refer
o Winthrop College, and to the propo
sion to have the main line of the j
louthern railroad come through An
erson. These propositions were great
ritb possibilities for growth and de
elopment for Anderson, yet a short
Ighted policy defeated them, and the
bes has been keenly felt. The same
esult waa almost secured in regard
o the franchise matter, but fortunate
y this was averted and Anderson can
till be called "The Electric. City/'
lie condition which confronts the city
oday, as regards street paving is as
in portant as any ot these other- move
ments, and means much to the future
Towtb and development of the city,,
nie secretary of the chamber ot com
merce states that several 1 residents
lave been lost because of the muddy
ondition of the streets. Northern capi
allsts and tourists are going to turn
heir attention to the South in in
reasing numbers, and if Anderson
resents an up-to-date appearanceout
tde capital will he attracted, and the
Towth of the city will be continuous,
hit this cannot he done unless the
leople pull together. We will pull to
other, end it will r*su!t IE src?i gcod
o Anderson-and in paving at least
5 miles of streets.
It ls a great pity that one has to
play politics" In order to bo a euc
essful "politician." When a question
ornes up for discussion, or tor action,
he politician must think of the effect
ila re macks or vote will hare on those
rho have the power to' elect. A man
annot be a man and he a modern
politician." The man who plays pon
ies Is like the cam?l?on-takes thb
?olor ot tho. thing upon which it
itands. Tho voice of tho people must
te his firist concern,and he will express
ta opinion afterward. No great leader
?an be a' politician. The man who can
ead ls he who can mould opinion, and
th ape the action ot those with whom
ie comes in contact. There are "busi
tess politicians'' the same as the cf
ice-seoktng, kind. Let a public ques
lon come up and he will not express
tn opinion because!he fears lt will
'drive business away from my store."
flave you ever aeon,ope ot these-sp!no
ess creatures? lt is time? for modern
nought and modern thinkers to abro
rate to the rear these parasite/ upon

terest of hts constituents, and will

iftd e eta. It seems that It is not as
easy as it seemed wheo tn the heat o.

people will hardly mind lt lt ta not
'performed. They nave abort momoric:
anyway, and they will not recall any
0? thu political promise?. If they do
recall them they will not hold him
to strict accountability-the, promises
wore made to catch votes.
Have there been any of these per
formances in Anderson?
Gov. Charles A. Smith, until yes
terday lieutenant governor of South
Carolina, will rightfully discharge his
duties in that ofllce, for five days, if
he sits quietly on the lld until Gov
ernor Manning is inaugurated. This
pardon phobia that has seized South
Carr.lii:a ls not going to bc stopped
abruptly, not oven with the change of
governors, and already petitions
are being rushed In to Cover
nor Smith. Cases from this city
and this county are gotng to
be carried before him, and so great
lian become the excitement anions
those seeking executive clemency they
are going to expect him to take ac
We tako lt that Governor Smith
will act In none of these, hutmill
simply file all such requests for" tho
consideration of his successor, who
will assume the duties of the office,
to which bc was elected by the peo
ple, next Tuesday. That will be the
course pursued no doubt.
Of course, lt would be asking too
tiiuch to suggest that Governor Smith
withstand the temptation to ring in a
message or so to the legislature-for
why ls a legislature, If not for the
reception ot gubernatorial messages
but If he confines himself to state
wide prohibition, which waa thc prin
cipal plank of his platform in the
campaign for governor last summer,
no harm will be dono.
In other words, governor, make
yourself perfectly at home in the
parlor, but don't go poking around
and interfering wltb the help. Just
walk around and look at the pictures
on the wall. Enjoy yourself. The
boss will be In a minute.-Spartan
burg Herald.
The late governor ought not to
have put that jolt In the way ot the
?water wagon. Just at the time of
year when men* are doing all sorts
ot equilibrium stunts in an effort to
.tay aboard, and are made to totter
and lean every time a shadow is run
over, he comes forward with his re
signation and thus places a great
boulder in the path of said vehicle.
Ii ls unreasonable to expect any aqua
I charlot ever fashioned to run over

quences to tho . passengers.-Oreen

lu his inaugural address Governor
Rye promised enforcement of tho pro
hibition laws, saving in this connec
"As a party we stand pledged to en
force? the laws and this must bc done
lt Ute enactment o? nuch laws can
bring about that result. This pledge to
the people should be made good,' not
merely because we are committed to
the policy ot law enforcement ss a

le because lt is right and I trust and
believe -that we have the courage to

Other matters he urged - were, re

the laws governing the expenditure ot
