WHERE ARE \TX GOING?
It is early for candidates for Goveruor
to come ou% but they are now
being: announced. Governor Ellerbe
has already 6aid (hat he would be in
tbe rise. Siate Senator Aicher, of
Spartanburg, li%s published an announcement
saying that he would be
in tbe race. We do not know Mr.
Archer, but the tone of his announcement
is not such to commend him to a
stranger. It does not sound right. "In
order to allay doubts and Jet the opposition
fix their plans and trot out
their. her?e or horses, I take this
method of declaring myself a candidate
for Governor," says Mr. Archer.
The pa6t in the history of the Stste
may be despised by some people, but
if is something belonging to rrcent
pe&rauue*. iu mi. mwuu
there is not even the hint of a pretext
that the office wants him.
Where are we going, anyway ?
We regret that Mr. Ragsdale's bill
to have judges elected by the people
was not considered more favora bly by
- tbe General Assembly. It is along the
line of the tendency to bring the
people closer to their public officers.
Th? chief objection against the bill is
th-t it brings the indrciarv into Dsli
tic3, audit is said that representatives
ar* more apt tc make a wiser selection
thau the people. We do not thiuk
tba? there i3 a great deal in this objection.
The people elect the representatives,
and if they sercise their
, ffreges wisely in the election of rep?.jsentatives,
why shonld the people
^oi do the same !biag in electing
judges? Why shonld the people's
choice be made by proxy? Oar observation
is that the p?ople will always
correct a wrong quicker thun
representatives, and we are willing to
trnsi them. Judges in New :York are
elecied by popular vote, and the plan
has proven satisfactory there.
The House of Representatives refused
to repeal the metropolitan police
'law. We regret very much to see
this, but there is some comfort in the
fact that the vote was pretty close and
that a great many absentees would
have voted in favor of the repeal had
they been present. We believe that a
majority of the people in the State
favor the repeal. The people of South
Carolina are naturally iiDeriy-ioviDg,
and the principle of local self-government
is very dear to them. This law,
we believe, was passed by the radicals,
In those day.?, the reason for the
law was that in those municipalities
where they could not control the elections,
the radical administration conld
put radicals over the towns aud cities.
It is a relic of those evil days, and
ought to be repealed.
Although we think tbat Fairfield
onght tc have the Judgeship of the
sixth circuit, we are pleased to be able
to say that Mr. Gage will make an
acceptable Judge. Re has impressed
himself very favorable as a member
of the General Assembly. He has
been conservative in his views, and is
a man of the highest integrity, conscientious
and a hard, close student.
We congratulate the circuit upon his
Mk. Mower is an able lawyer, and

"vttlvi " wv4v w,%m5vj " \
are glad that he was beaten by Chief
Justice Mclver. Mr. Mow?r must
havo known that he could ?ot be
electcd, and we are surprised that he
allowed himself to be used as an instrument
for those opposed to Chief
Justice Mclver. It is all the more ;
surprising becauao others had been
approached be tore Mr. Mower.
If a lawyer has judicial aspiration#,
he must become a member of the
General Assembly. This body elects
the judges, and a member of that body
ha3 a dccided advantage. The members
ci thi General Assembly have a
feeling of comradeship for each other,
and it is hard for them to vote against
a fellow-member. This is one reason
why the people ought to elect the
Tiie General Assembly should pass
the bill locking to the improvement of
oar public road?. It might be improved
in some respects, but we are
glad to see that the agitation of good
roads is '^earing some fruits.
Ev~_- The Discovery of the Day.
Aug. J. Bogel, the leading druggist
of Shreveport, La., says: "Dr. King's
New Discovery is the only thing that
enres my cough, and it is the best seller
I have." J. ~F. Campbell, merchant
of taflbra, Ariz ,writes: "Dr.King's
New Discovery is all that is claimed
for it; it never fails, and is a sure
cure for Consumption, Coughs and (
Colds. I cannot say enough for its
merits. Dr. King's New Discovery
for Consumption, Coughs and Colds
is not an experiment. It bas been i
tried for a quarter of a centary, and ]

LOVE OF A HOMEA
Marked Trait in the Character of Gen.
Gen. John Bratton passed out of
sight in a calm and quiet manner that
fitly illustrated his life. He wa^ always
thoughtful, dispassiona'e and
collected, never flurried and worried
even in the most tumultuous hours of
conflict, and always the most unswerving
adherent of duty. We cai recall
no instance, amid the hurling round
of shot and shall or in the exultant
moment of a victorious charge, when
h<? was not eelf-poised and did not impress
others with his coolness under
the mostjexciting surroundings. For
such a leader men always gave the
highest evidences of respect and confidence
when the battle raged or danger
was imminent. They followed him
implicitly because they kuew lie was
always coilectcd and familiar with the
environments ot the situation.
S >, too, in time3 of peace Gen. Bratton
never shirked a duty that his fellow-citizens
asked him to perform,
and while he was ready for service he
?vas not clamorous to be recognized

in his life did be evince greater unselfishness
than when he made the
campaign for Governor in the tempestuous
days of 1890, at the instance
of f-iends in whom he trusted, and.
with no hope whatever of tuccess.
He was resolute and determined, for
he was impressed with a conviction of
duty as presented bj others, and he
went to defeat without dishonor with
the placid assurance of an approving
conscience. He was wise in council,
resoltue in action, courteous in conduct,
deferential to others and f-elfrespecting
at all times. His practical,
sagacious intellect grasped the det*iis
whether on gory field or fruitful farm,
and bis superior powers as a man were
exerted for the benefit of others, who
were his neighbors aod friends, to
whom he was devotedly attach ;d.
His love of home and its surronndiugs
was a marked trait in his character,

homage at his bier, as they had trusted

Unhealthy urine from unhealthy

troubles. It is comforting to know I
that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root fulfills
every wish in quickly curing bladder

to hold urine and scalding or

effects following use of liquor, wine

necessity of being compelled to
