THE CLEVELAND ADMINISTRATION,
President Cleveland's ?dmi-..i>tration
has ended, aud however we may d:fFer
in opinion as io the success of his
scconl term, we ought not to forget
. tha' he is the only Democraic President
for nearly two generations. Wc
ought not to lose sight of the
fact that he is the only friend the South
Las had in the presidential chair foi
all of these years. He has had a hare
time of it. Ilis administration ha;

discouragement. Xot only has h(
been opposed by the Republicans, bui
the bitterest opposition has come iron
his own party.
Whether right or wrong he has beer
at least consistent. lie started out 01
a certain line. and. has not turned tc
tbe left or to the right. In his ap
pointmant?, he has ignored parties
and jtiven office, as he doubtles
thought to the most competent. The
politician has cnt no figure with him
Uninfluenced bv tbe politic'ans, it is
natural that they should beagaios:
It i= said that he has been weak it
h'N ioi-iiu .1 policy. And yet whea he
sent to Congress his Venezuelan message.
he was most savagely ciitlcisec
:n son::- quarters as a jingo. Thj com
plete clearing away of the war cloud:
is ~eil known, and a happy solutior
of :hr.t question, honorable to this
counn-y, is admitted.
Thi* atiiuule of his administration ir
ths Cuban question i> the subject o
adverse criticism. From the published
account: of what General Lee say?
we are inclined to think that the aa
minist'atiun deserves censure. J3u'
let ns suspend judgment unlii we lieai
the othar side.
Thi :"'iuch oa?i be said of Mr. Cleve'
land: Irrespective of parties a vas:

States tru^t, h:m iuipiicith*. They be
iieve L 'at what he does is right; thcj
believe that he is thoroughly honest
that lie has has dared to do what ii
There i> at least one thing tor whiet
the South ought to thank Mr. Clove
land- He has reduced the tariff. "VVhei
could you have bought clothing
cheap as now? It is due to him thai
they sre so cheap. He would have
had them even cheaper, for be declarec
the Democratic tariff a makeshift, anc
refuse 1 to sign it. He allowed it ic
become a kw without his signature.
Senator Tillman raised a stir in
the Senate by saying that the armor
plate concerns had too many friend:
i ? t V> r> Qaiiotn C n>> >r\ Vinr Spnqfnt'
Ilawley bccamc very indignant, and
declared that it was a slander. Senator
Tillman said that he could not
I>rove that there svas any corruption,
but he thought there was.
"While nobody may be able to prove
any actual corruption, there can be
no doubt of the fact that the trusts
r.nd combines have got entirely too
many friends in the Senate for the
good of ! be country. The tariff legislation
is of itselt proof of how many
friends the rich manufacturers have
in tne chamber. The sectional character
of the taril!shows which way the
wind blows. A close examination of
the schedule will show that the highest
tariff duties are on those articles
produced by the section of the country
where nearly all of the immensely
rich rr.cn live. The great wheat crop
of hi: West get* almost nothing. The
wuoi grower* gci a mwc puiauuu.
Tiic ??-uth and West ffet no benc-lit

Est;:Ui(iand the East? They get it
ail. and there is where you will Cud
the great money king?. It is there
m r.ey liud? its way into the
pockets 01 the few.
What dees ; he South get from the
t-iviii'ia'.i'r. Practically nothing. The
cotton of *Ve South gets not one cent,
thotig.-it is the chief industry of a
very largo section of this country.
inc uivy on r:ce, wmcn 13 me proauct
of a very small area, is a mere pittance.

President M'.Kixlev is under a
contract to i -h>ir prosperity, and perhaps
iiv. President has ever gone into
cfuce with a ra-.-re sincere wish of his
poii:ic.;l antagonists that he may keep
his con-racr. aiihoug"; his policy was
jiios* l>i:.t;rly opposed. lie ?-honM he

hoped. that lie Democrats will adhere
10 the jonrse already announced, and
pat no obstae'e in :he wav of the

plans into k-jrishuion. Mr. McKiniey

I to rest. The heavy rains dating the
j past raonth have shown that a red
| clay bottom 15 not sufficient. The
i roads are said to be almost impassable
! in places. Only a few day; ago a
j gentleman was seen passing through
j town looking worn and wearv. His
mule locked more fagged and f>
! ligued than he. Although he had not
| travelled a great many miles, he s lid
; that his buggy had been in the mud
nearly to the hub, and tha? his muie
i had "about given cut.?' \Ve have no
j doubt that the experience of ;!:ij
gentleman and his mule is the experience
ofagieat many others. The
; wear of the vehicles, the wasteless oxj
penditure of the energy of the man as
i well as the mule would be saved is
! our roads were macadamized. The
; cost would be more than made up by
Mhe comfort with which a j.mn.ey
,; through the county could be t-.ken.
! But it must be borne in mind that
' i mere talk will not give u> better
I roads. Writing for a new-piper may
I serve the purpose of creating public
j opinion, but there must be something
j more than writing. Action is needed.
,! T ie people are not going to improve
j the ro-ids unless they are made to >io
, it. Nobody is going to give money
fur the purpose voluntarily. If it is
| to be done, it must be done by taxation.
Taxation cau be made if the
people will authorize those charged
with the administration in our county
affair? to do so. The object ii agitating
the matter in tins newspaper is
to find out exactly to what extent our
, people really want better reads, and
j whether they are nally willing to
pay for them. We invite an ixpixsi
