The assassination of Editor Gonzale:
in the manner in which it was done wil
be deplored by all the people of th<
State. A brave man would give evt"r
an enemy an opporit t,o defend him
salf. If this sort of thing is to be con
oned no man's life will be secure
We have had many differences with Mr
Gonzales, and at times we have thought
him unjust and unfair, but we have al
ways recognized his ability and hi:
forcefulness as an editoral writer anc
we regret the tragic ending of his life.
He will be missed by his frierds and as
well by his political enemios. Ther
was no editor in this State, and has
been none since the death of Capt. F.
W. Dawson. with as strong personality.
and who wrote as vigorous English as
N. G. Gonzales. We would not say
anything to prejudice the case of Mr.
Tillman. but we cannot help but deplore
such tragedies and recognize the it'ss
of such a personality as the dead editor.
The readers of The Herald and News
are already familiar with the facts in the
awful t rage(.' which was enacted
Columbia last week. It is to be de
plored by all of the people of this State.
Editor Gonzales had taken a very active
part against Mr. Tillman in the last
campaign and had published some very
severe strictures upon him. le was
shot on the streets without warning
and when he was unarmel. The whole
matter is to be deplored. Here is the
second executive oflicer in the State on
his way from tne State Capitol armed
with two pistols in violation of the
statute law of the State, and assaulting
in such manner a citizen on one of the
most public thoroughfares of the city.
It is very much to be deplored.
Editor Gonzales was one of the most
vigorous and forceful writers in the
State, though he often weakened his in
fluence by the bitterness of his pen. His
ability was recognized by his enemies.
His labors and his pen were always for
what he believed was right. His death
will be a distinct loss to the paper
which he had built by his own genius
and strong personality to be one of the
leading papers in the South.
Our sympathy goes to the stricken
editor and his family and we trust he
may recover.
Apart from the etreet of the awful
tragedy utpon the two persons most
interested and their immediate families
We are sorry it happened for the effect
it will have upon our State.
We are glad to note that the city is
going ahead with street improvement.
It will cost money, to be sure, but the
benefits will be so great that there will
be no kicking after it is seen what
these improvements mean. In some
places now when there is the least rain
wagons cannot travel the streets and
p)edestrians can scarcely get to their
homes without wading through the
mudl. Good str'eets, good sidlewalks
and good public highways are the cry
ing needls of these times. They are
more to be dlesiredl thani low taxes be
cause they will sav'e much more money
than they will cost.
Gr'eenwvood's sewerage s,vstem is vir
tually comp)leted now. 'lhbe fourteen
miles we nowv have cost us about $25,
000. Columbia has t wenty' eight miles
and its cost was over $75,000. Twicet
as m,any miles cost three times as much.
---reenwood Index.
It is a little remarkableb that New
berry sewerage cost so much more.
We have only five miles and had $25,
000. Now it may be that there is stil'
on handl some $;,000. Our board o1
public works has made no staten'ent as
to the cost of our system of sewerage

The mill men have already become
active in their opposition to the child
labor measures. At the meeting of the
commit tee on commerce of the Senate,
held on Friday to consider the Marshall
Bill, Capt. Ellison A. Smyth, of the
Pelzer mills, '.;r. W. A. Clark, of the
Columbia mills, and Mr. L. W. Parker,
of the Greenville mills, were present
and presented their views. They did
not think there was any necessity for
legislation, saying the evils incident to
the employment of such labor in this
State were wholl^ imaginary and ex
aggerated. If a law must be passed,
however, they would prefer the Mar
shall Bill rather than the one intro
(uced by Mr. Aull.
It looks very much now as if one of
the proposed measures is going to be
come a law.
Compulsory Education Bills have been
introduced in both houses. In the House
M r. Aull is the author of a Bill the pro
visions of which are that on and after
the first (lay of July, 1903, every child
in the State between the ages of 7 and
12 shall attend a p)ublic school in the
district in wvhich it resides, or some
ot,her' school approved by the board of
truistees, for the length of time that
the said public school is in session dur
ig the year; provided, that non-at
tendance may be excuised by the board
of tirustees. That the failure of a child
of the reqtuired age so to attendl school
shall be conistruedl as a misdlemeanor
on the part of the p)arent or guardian
of such child, for which saidl parent or
guardian shall be p)rosecu tedl bhfore
any magistrate with ju risdiction, and
shall be subject to a fine not exceeding
one dlollar for each day of unexcused
absence, or one (lay's imprisonment.
The manneir provided for the enforce
ment of the law is that a census of
children of the prescribed ages shall be
nmade each year, and1 the absence of any
child any (lay shall be rep)orted by the
teacher to the board of trustees and
the boardl shall proceed against the
delinquent parents.
In the Senate Mr. Riayor, of Orange
burg, has a Bill requiring the attend
ance upon school for eight, weeks of all
childre-n betweern the ages of eight and
fturteen years, inclusive, unless they
may be prevented by illness or reside
more than two miles from a school
j house, or by reason of already being
- proficient; and when such reasons exist
said children must be excused by tl
board of trustees. A fine of not less
- than $.5.'X r.or more than $20.00), or im
a risonment in jail for not less than ter
r nor more than twenty dlays, is provided
r for every o:Tense.
In the matter of the improvement of
the p.ub:le roash Mr. Aull has i tro

Capt. 1). .1. Gritlith will in all proba

of Newberry. now Assocaite Justioe,
will be chosen Chief .Justice to succeed
the late lamented Chief Justice Melver.
Of course, lion. A. C. Latimer, who
was nominated in the primary, will be
elected United States Senator. This
election by the legislature is now only
a matter of form.

already stated, General M. C. Butler,

Th'le report of the sub-judiciary comn
mnittee aplpointed at the last session to
investigate the circumstances relative
to the substitution of a Dispensary Bill,
for a Road Bill in free conference corn

Assembly in a special executive mes
sage. It will lbe rememberedl that Mr.
D)ominick, of Newberry, who was last
year a member of the House, was p)rom
imently connect ed with this matter.
The committee fully exonerated Mr.
D)om iniek and the others connected with
it. Th committeet, however, placed
itself on record as not ondorsing such

lie has had only one term of legislativ,
servitt\ lle is a man ot' ability an

le tslative service impressed himlsel

W\i' have ieard some criticism of hit
appoimt ments on commit tees. It seem.
that he has not followed precedent am
has )iven1 some new men g\aki posi
tlor.. over soie older lmenl who had
seten loter service. This emritieism
may be just and it may not. Years of
s'\ 't' dloes not ah\va\'s mt'an that a

solc new men in point of service who
aris older in point of experienet and
\\ho an' t'better tit ted by reason of t his

smen im1portant 'ommlit te 00 assigonents.
Then in this matter it should be re
mem<'berewi that this was a new house
ade etvy lember was on practieally
the sanim' fo1'tngl1. W do not believe
the Jacksonian doctrine that to the
Vc or-s N'long the spoils if it is carried
to the extent of impairing the public
serv-er but unless it does we do not be
:r'\ e any man should be criticised for
its exetvise- if a man does not count
his tends w\ h; n he has positions to be
st'w h'w can he expect to have friends.
tit ca be shown that Speaker Smith
by l'mvingt some tegive of preference
to his friends in the matter of appoint
ments has in the slightest impairted the
public service or promoted men who
are incompetent, then the criticism is
just and proper. but if the men who
have been recogni:.ed in his coumittet
assignments are compete'nt for the po
sitions given them and the public ser
vice will be cared for in an ethlcient
manner then the eriticism is unjust and
in bad taste. We believe the latter is
true and that the assignments made by
him are as good and the men as com
petent as would have been the result if
he had followed the wishes o' tO'se
who opposed his election and v ye n
them the preferment. I.et the c ri-:
cisms in this matter be iust.
We believe Mr. Smith will make a
good presiding officer and will be fair
and impartial in his rulings and that
those who did not get just what they
wanted should remer that there are
about 124 membe -- and very few extra
good places at the disposal of the
speaker. We have no doub: that in
this list are some of his friends and
It should be the effort of every mem
ber to uphold the hands of the speaker
and help on the work of legislation.
We know he has ability and we are
sure he will be impartial in his rulings
and that he will have in mind only the
best interests of the State and the
happiness of its people in all of his
official acts.

Washington, January 13. -Senator
Tillman gave notice in the Senate to
(lay that he will endeavor to lay the
coal famine nowv prevailing throughout
the land at the (100r of President Roose
velt and Attorney General Knox. Sen
ator Tillman obtained the floor today,
p)ending the dlebate on the fr-ee coal
resolution, but he gracefully yielded to
Senators D)olliver and Aldrich, who be
came involved in what Seniator Tlillman
dlesignated as a "pel)tty family (luarrel."
The South Carolina Senator (lid not
obtain the floor again until he had a
little clash with Senator Fairbanks, the
temporary presiding ofli--er, wVho did
not know that Senator Tillmian had
been p)reviously recognized by P'residlent
Fr-ye and had yielded the floor to others.
Senator TPillman and his associates tho
roughly enjoyedi the hair-pulling match
in the Republican household over the
reciprocity. Senator D)olliver declared
it was the dloctrine of Blaine, McK(in
Iey andl Dingley, and Senator Aldrich
boldy rpuditedit as injurious to
Amorican husiness interests.'
Senator Tillman will probably handle
Roosevelt without gloves tomorrowv, in
