The Alliance in Edgefield is trying
to establish a bank in tint county.
The plan is to receive subscriptions in

The subscription list is open
to alt and is not confined to the membership.
The declaration of Senator Ingalls
in favor of a law exempting the children

Senator Chandler's proposition
to amend the Constitution so as to
illow the Federal government to
enforce the law against felony, where
the state fails to finish it, does not
go far enough. The amendment
should allow a state to punish infractions
of federal law where the national
goverment fails to do so. Perhaps
isome recollection of the navy frauds,
when the doughty senator was chief
of that deDartinent. caused him to
limit the amendment to federal interference.
If the rule is to be changed
make it broad enough to take in all.
We don't believe it will work, but
Senator Butler's bill relating to the
emigration of the negro to Africa bad
a strong advocate in Senator Morgan.
Mr. Motgan's point? in favor oi the bill
are in substance that the negroes have
no chance of rising in this country;
there are no negro batik presidents,
cashiers or tellers; no negro representatives
in either house of Congress;
that he is simply the political tool of
others and nRver accomplishes any
goou political iy ior nimseir. mr. .morgan
thinks the negroe's mission is to return
to Africa and establish a republican
government on the Congo, and
thus become "the redeemers and regenerators
of their fatherland.*'
Jekfekson Davis wrote only a few
chapters of his autobiography, but left
all the necessary data for its completion
which will be collated by Mrs.
Davi3 with the assistance of a few intimate
frieuds of the ex-President. Mrs.
Davis says that she hopes to be able
to portray some or the noblest and
subtlest traits of character of her husband
which have not been so generally
understood. The South will wait impatiently
for the book, giving an account
of his iilustrous and remarkable
career. Perhaps no one is better fitted
to finish the work on his autobiography
than she who was his companion
amid bis brightest days and a loving
attendant at his death bed. She
doubtless can give the brightest aspects
of his pure character.
The South is not only richer in the
agregate man it was ten years ago, out
carefoll j prepared statistics in a special
issue of the Tradesman show that it is
richer per capita. The improvement
is not restricted to any one State or
district, bnt it is found on careful investigation
that the wealth has been
well distributed throughout the whole
section. If we advance in the next
ten years as we have done in the past
ten, our progress will be something
marvelous. No year in the last decade
has closed without leaving us as a people
richer than the preceding one.
Uar increase of wealth is due mainly
to tbe development of new railroads,
natural resources, factories and the
opening of mines, but there has been
an increase in the value of lands. We
uow average $195.S3 per capita against
! $147.88 in 1880. The ind- i>! i<l:>cs.^ duj
ring the fame period hu?; htlirn from
i $217,693,585 to $182,426,575.
It seems thafj?leti<3a is on tl.e eve
of anottjsp-boom. At fi st she enjoyed
tlis^orange boom, then the climate
boom, and now we are told that the
phosphate boom is something approaching
the gold craze in California
when Sutton discovered the precious
metal in his mill-race. Beneath the
sandy surface of this gulf-stream- (
formed peninsular va>t bed* of phos- .
phate rock have bee n discovered and
capitalists are flockinjr there anxious
and eager to purchase?. Lands worth
fifty cents an acre six months ago are
msw icauiiy 5VJIi lux i w uiu \ uuiiur*.
The qualitative analyses show that the
percentage of phosphate is much larger
than that mined about Charleston, and
the supply is inexhaustible, they claim. ,
What effect this find will have on the :
South Carolina mines it is impossible
to say, as no practical operations bave '
started yet. #
Witn her three booms?her climate
in the heavens above the earth, her '
oranges on the face of the earth, and
her phosphates in the bowels of the ;
earth?it seems that there is nothing
for Florida to do but boom and boom
away in spite of her flies, fleas, mosquitos
and boarding-house keepers.
Let her boom.
What the <*r?pp Is.
As there is so much said at this time
about the malady called influenza, it
may be of interest to state the symtoms
of the disease and the various theories
as to its origin. The name influenza
has its origin from the superstitious
idea of the Italians, who, in the 17 th
century, -when it was spreading through
Italy, ascribed, it to the influence of
. the stars.
A great .deal of speculation and
some scientific research have been
j made with a view of finding out the
cause or me peculiar disease. ?>ome
have held that it is developed by certain
telluric conditions, others have
maintained that it depends on climatic
influences: but both theories were
exploded by its appearance in all sorts of
climates and conditions. There have
been other hyphotheses advanced, such
| as a change in the electrical condition
of the atmosphere or a superabundance
of ozone, but the theory which
generally obtains Is that, as in other
epidemics, it is caused by minute
organisms or germs which fill the atmosphere,
and after these organisms
are taken into the body they multiply
infinitely, and become u source of in
! fection by tue breath, hence the contagiousness
of the disease.
The symptoms develop very rapidly,
with very much the attendant troubles
of a bad "cold, followed by headaches
and tightness across the forehead and
very high fever.
Another Barnwell ainrder.
Whether there is any connection beween
the murder of William Black, a
negro ex-convict, while on his road
home in Barnwell County, by a white
man named Ready, and the recent
lynching in that countv, we can't tell;
but, it i* reasonable to suppose that
such unlawful butcherv,as was the
recent lynching, is calculated to inspire
a wanton disregard for the value of
It seems that Black had been released
from the penitentiary, and in
going home in Barnwell county he
stopped at a house along the road and
stole jotne trivial articles. The stolen
goods were soon missed by the owner.
The thief was duly arrested, nnder a
warrant lrom a Trial Justice, by a
constable or constables duly authorised
to do so. After the arrest, they
were joined by a white man, David C.
Ready, who directed theui to go by a
swamp. When at the swamp, Ready
tied the negro to a tree and shot bis
brains out. What the negro constables
were doing all this time, we don't
know. Ready has not been arrested.
The Governor cau have no doubt as
to w[jo committed this atrocious
crime and should exhaust every power
f-n hrinor fh? villain fi"> fria.1. Sitnnlv

to condemn with hard words is not
enough. The people of Barnwell arc
said to denounce the crime. Do they
believe it was wrong? The belief, if
it is sincere, must carry action with it.
Tliev ought to assist in bringing the
criminrl to justice.
Operation of Protection.
Tlif? nnernrion of from t
the protectionists standpoint, was
plaiuly shown in the testimony given
before the Ways and Means committee
in Washington on the day the sugar
tariff was being discussed.
Among others ex-Governor Warmoth.
of Louisiana, the largest sugar
planter in that State, appeared iu the
interests of a protective tariff for
sugar. Mr. Waruioth dots not want
a bounty for the reason that the people
of the country would not submit
to the annual draft on the treasury,
which is filled from the pockets of
sixty millions of people, to support
the comparatively few who are en
gagea 111 me proaucuon ox sugar, ne
says "a demand will arise for its abolition"
(the bounty) "that cannot be
resisted." In other words, if the people
are made to realize the great fraud
and injustice of protection, they will
overturn the power that perpetrates it.
About eleven hundred people owu
sugar plantations in Louisiana and
they employ some half a million bands
and the fifty-nine and a half millions
who use sugar are asked to pay half a
cent a pound more for the sugar they
use in order to enable the j^ilf million
to raise it.
Again we are told that Louisiana
furnishes only one-eighth of the sugar
consumed in the United States, so that

T1yfr^Stanufacturcfs7 Record sounds a
framing to those disposed to invest
in the many Jumbo building and
loan associations "which are being presented
to the people of the South with
the most encouraging promises of
profits. The advice given is sound
not only as regards building and
loan associations out in its bearing
upon the general financial policy of
a community. If you want your
town to prosper throw all your
energy and spare money into its
interprizes and push them on to success
in every way in your power.
In building up your neighbors you
build up yourself. The Record says:
Some months ago the Manufacturers'
Record sounded a warning, cautioning
small investors and home-seekers
against irresponsible and foreignmanaged
building and loan associations.
When such an association
is in the hands of local business men,
and run on business principles, it is
one of the most commendable institutions,
for it is one of the best aids
to a w -kingman of limited income,
to buil nimself a home 011 the principle
of the installment plan. But
when such an association is managed
by men a thousand miles away, who
in some cases practically guarantee
profits of twenty per cent, or so a
year the workingman is nearlv sure
to lose whatever money he mav invest
in such an institution unless the association
is managed under the supervision
of the State and only lawful
interest paid, and, we believe, in no
case is this State supervision had in
War has been opened upon some
of these institutions in the cities in
which they are managed, and when
the local press feels called upon to
condemn a local institution, there
must be something decidedly wrong
in that institution.
We urge now, as we have always
urged iu these columns, establish a!
building and loan association wherever
and whenever subscribers enoughcan
be had to guarantee its success.
But manage your own funds. Don't
pay some concern with high-sounding
name that lias headquarters in a distant
part of the country, for the
privilege of investing the money that1
you earn with your own hands, but
put your money into the hands of
your" neighbors and friends who are
building homes to build up and improve
your own town. Then you
not only have your savings where
you can see and watch them, but you
aid to beautifv and make more home
ike your own town.
These seductive institutions will
be a bitter lesson to many workingmen
in the South, who will see their hardearned
savings disappear. But, the
lesson will be a good one, and we
hope will result in the legislature of
every southern state passing laws to
either shut out or to hold under close
supervision these deceptive schemes.
