OUR HOME CRITICS.
"Our own arch. It was a bad botch."
. "The descriptive circulars
xwere not what they ought to have
been" . . . .. "There might be other
riticisms, but they could do no good,"
says the Observer about Newberry's
rch atThe Centennial, and the descrip
tine circulars printed and distributed
at the same time, and also printed in
The Herald and News last week.
The Herald and News would like to
know what good this much criticism
-has done. Newberry's arch was not
elaborate, nor what it should have been,
nor what it was contempiated to be
;but there is no need now of this criti
cism. The arch was not so terribly
.;bad either. As to the descriptive cir
cular The Herald and News thinks it
- was a very creditable circular, and cer
tainly compared favorably in style,
matter and general get up with those
distributed by other counties. But
then there is no "disputing about
tastes" apd some people will find fault
= and complain at anything that is done.
What Newberry needs is not a spirit
fault finding and criticism with ev
2 ery effort for the advancement of the
town, but for every one to do his part
d pull together for the progress and
developement of the town.
The Observer generally says what it
thanks and The Herald and News ad
hires this spirit, but when fault find
-ing and criticism do no good what's
-the use of it.

istributed inColumbia and elicited

nent daily papers spoke in complimen
.tary terms of them, and in fact the on
,: ly adverse criticism that The Herald
and News has heard, comes from our
cotemporary, the Observer.
We are glad to believe that the De
mocracy is good enough for the white
people of South Carolina. They do
? not want a third party. But the
c trouble is going to be that each of the
- two factious now in the State is going
to claim to represent the Democratic
party, and each is going to call the
other Independent, and all sorts of
things. We should get together, but
instead the signs of the times indicate
that we are getting further apart.
There is needed in South Carolina a
spirit of tolerance. There is too great
a tendency among certain of our would
be-leaders to suppress the freedom of
speeeb, unless that freedom puts you in
line with them and all their wild
teachings. Let us have more tolera
tion, more regard for the opinions and
views of each other; stop thinking and
saying hard things of each other, and
ques"tioning one another's motives;
force into retirement all leaders who
by word or action would stir up strife.
Let us remember that we are white
men and brethren, and that all true
inen among us desire the welfare of all
the people. Let us get together, then,
-andi discuss our differences, but let us
do it lte men.
Governor Tillman's head is level on
-a good many things, and he generally
says what he thinks. He'is wrong,
-according to The Herald and Newvs, on
some things, but he is right on the sub
treasury scheme, and now on the third
party craze he expresses himself with
no uncertain sound. According to the
Record he says: "I am a Democrat.
I was born a Democrat and I expect to
die a Democrat. It would be idiocy as
-well as suicide for the Southern people
to follow such leadership. The ulti
matum as to the negro shows what we
may expect from any sneh affiliatio*n."
*State Lecturer Talbert declined to be
interviewed on the subject saying that
he had announced his platform and
that he stood squarely upon it. He ex
pects to do a great deal of stump speak
ing on the issues of the day during the
Governor Tillman is right on this
question and has with him the great
majority of the white people of South
This seems to be a time and a year
for calling people names at long range
and putting these epithets in the shape
of resolutions. Newspapers that give
circulation to such mud-slinging are
not elevating to the moral ton'e of the
community ; neither are they perform
ing their duty in the higher sphere of
journalism. If persons have personal
difficulties let them face each other
like men and settle them among them
South Carolina had no representative
at Cincinnati to help in forming the
Third Party or Peoples Party. That is
strange for we ha.ve more things done
in South Carolina in the name of -'the
people'" than any other State in the
union. If not then we pity that other
place. But the great mass of the white
people of South Carolina are sat isfied
with the Democratic party.

use of making a fuss about it. They
all do it. But prosecute your investi
gation and you will find that all our
State officers ride on free passes.
Now about the Congressmen we
have no definite information, except
that we understand that Cougressman
Johnstone has declined to accept a free
pass, and this statement is made with
out his knowledge or consent. But
you will find some of these gentleman
using free passes too.
But where is the harm Mr. Cotton
Plant? Let these gentlemen have a
good time if they want to. They are
in the thing to make out of it all they
can and let them proceed.
Now we want the Cotton Plant to re

ABOUT A SECOND TERM.
The boom against the present admin
istration for 1892 is evidently on, but it
goes slow.-Bamberg Advertiser.
How long has it been announced that
the present administration was in the
race for reelection in 1892? Has it
come to pass that an official act of the
:resent administration cannot be criti
ised without it being construed into
opposition to the administration?
There are a few rabid administration
sheets in South Carolina that are try
ing very hard to keep up the strife and
warfare of last summer and that twist
everything into opposition to the ad
ministration. The candidates for 1892
have not yet been announced.
But the Bamberg Advertiser finds
several things in the Columbia centen
nial that it magnifies into opposition
to the administration. It thinks the
reuion of the Haiinpton Legion in Au
gusta a short time ago, and the Colum
bia centennial were all manipulated
against a second term for the present
administration, and that the proposed
reunion of Butler's Brigade tends that
way. A man can generally find what
he looks for. But if the administra
tion has such a hold on the people as
its ardent organs claim for it, we see no
use of all this scare. The editor of The
Herald and News happened to be in
Columbia during the whole of the cen
tennial, and he saw nothing, politi
cally speaking, to so frighten the ad
ministration. The State officers had
every attentioni, and those of them
with, whom we talked spoke in very
flattering terms of the success of the
If the present administration meets
the approval of the people, it will very
likely secure a second term if it desires
t. If it does not meet that approval,
the people will very probably say so,
and there is no use for these adminis
tration papers to become so frightened
at so early a date.

is just beginning and there is no use
yet for you to tear your shirt.

BANKS AND RAILROADS.
"It is estimated that the raising of
the assessments on railroads and banks
in this State will amount to nearly
$25,000,000, which if not reduced will
add about $100,000 to the taxes of the
The above is from the Columbia cor
respondence or the News and Courier.
The banks and the railroads will enter
a very lively protest -against such a
large increase in their assessments. It
would make no difference to them if
all 6ther property was increased in
value in the same ratio, because then
the rate of taxation would be lower.
But it does not appear just right to in
crease these returns wLen every one
knows that real estate and nearly all
personal property is returned at much
below its market value. The truth of
the matter is that it is a very difficult
thing to tell just what the market va
lua of property is.
Mr. Ellerbe says that his purpose is
to increase the assessments of all pro
perty to its market value and he hopes
to gettheILegislatuie at its next session
to order a reassessment of real estate
for taxation, and if it is not done then
he will recommend a rebate to the rail
roads and banks.
But why not wait and let the re
assessments of real estate, and the in
crease in the banks and railroads, all
come at once. There needs to be some
thing done in the matter of assess
ments and the start must be made,
but the present looks very much like

The Evening Record, in giving a

therefore "like apples of gold in pictures

spirit of fault-finding that actuated
some hypercritical spectators, who con

strove earnestly to advance the best

you for the fine public spirit displayed
in yielding so much of your space as
was necessary to publish in full the

which were distributed among the visi

scriptive of New berry's resources, was
circulated freely and called forth only

so far as we have heard.

the best and most judiciously advertis

LIVELY EFISODE IN LAURENS.
Reported Interview Between Professors
Evans and McElroy Regarding that
[Greenville News, 24th.]
Laurens had a breezy sensation on
Friday, if the reports that reach here

Evans, principal of the Laurens male
academy, invited Col. A. C. Haskell,
of Columhsa, to deliver an address be

much talk in Laurens and Professor
W. T. McElroy, of Laurens County,

the Laurensville Herald severely criti

statements which that gentleman
considered untrue and injurious. Pro

he met Professor McElroy on the
streets. The occurences that followed
are reported as told to a News reporter

statements, and the latter answered af

What better inducements could
teachers want than the ones offered?
The expenses of the trip will be only
nominal. Only the railroad fare need
be taken into consideration. Teachers,
it is your duty to attend the Associa

be a pleasure. It is to be hoped that
at least twenty teachers will be at An

an opportunity may not soon be offered
The schooi trustees of the county will
be expected at Newberry on the 2nd
Saturday in June. They should come
prepared to give their views on the
different questions concerning the pub

ly the condition of the schools under
their charge and should be ready to
tell what is neaded for their improve
ment. I know that there are many
things that impair the efficiency of our
scnools in the country, but I also
know that they can be made better and
more efficient if they should receive
that attention and thought that they
so justly deserve. At the meeting In

to improve not the system so much,
but the proper execution of the system.

A few days ago a certain teacher of
the county while iiscu.aing the worth
of English Grammar in our schools,
and the best methods of teaching it,
took issue with most of our text books
when he doubted the correctness of the
sentence: "I feel bad." He argued in
this way: "bad" is never used as an ad
verb, "badly" being the correct form.
In the sentence, does not bad tell how
Ifeel? And if it tells how I feel is it
not a modifier of feel? And if it is a
modifier of feel is it not correct?
It seems to me that wherever the
idea of being is most prominent in the
verb that the adjective form and not the
adverbial should be used. Suppose we
take the sentence: "He remained si
lent," and in place ' e

Considerable discussion is being ear
ried ob in the-newspaperd as to wha1
the "War between the States" shoul<c
be called. The State Supt. of Educa
inbists that it be calld the "Statei
Rights War." This seems to me to bi
a rather poor name, and to indefinite.
It would have been a state rights wai
had all the Southern States remained
and fought under the same flag as the
Northern States. They did not d<
this, however, but seceded from the
Union and endeavored too establish
their independence as a distinct repub'
lic. It was then beyond doubt a war
for independence, and not so mu~ch foi
states rights because the Southern
States by the act of secession were nc
longer a part of the Union and there
fore could claim no rights in the Union.
The News and Courier, then wai
right when it calls the contest, "Th4
War for Southern Independence." Il

called in our school histories. We al.
know the causes of it, and can explair
