SELL TKE PHILLIPINJES.
xne certainty tnat tne bimea oiaies
will have the disposal of the Phillipine
Islands is uatarally causing a
great deal of discussion as to what
will be dor.e with them. Already it
is to be seen that there is an element
among our &o called statesmen who
are in favor of holding the Phillipines
a3 United States territory. Such a
thing will be contrary to the whole
genius of our Government, and we
believe the beginning of a rery dangerous
step. As suggested from different
sources the Monroe doctiine
will have to be abandoned if the
United States permanently retain tbese
islanda. Europe can very properly
say that "you have acquired territory
on this side of the water, and now you
can not deny our right to take some
slices of territory on your side; shinney
on your own side or we shall strike
you." Sboaid tne unitea states noia
th8 Phillipincs as their own territory,
it will add to our already vast 8ea
coast, necessitating a large sUnding
army and a powerful navy. This
means another step towards & strong
centralized government, a tendency
already threatening dangers to the
Republic. It will miv the United
States with tha ao called Eastern
qnestion, and then it will not be with
Spain alone that we shall have to be
prepared to contend, bat the whole
world, with the possible exception of
Great BritaiD, and shs will use the
Phillipioes as our possessions to drag
us into her quarrels with Russia aDd
Then again once ctart this new departure
of adding to oar ttrritory by
right of conquest, and the greed for
more land will increase. We shall
then waut Portico Eico, and even
The homogenous government is the
strong and stable government. We
hare enough hetrogeneitv now, and
we do Dot want "any Spanish subjects
to contrel. Sell the Phillipines, and
let's hold what we now own.

Without any disposition whatever
to shield a criminal we protest against
a town council assuming authority to
hold a preliminary in an alleged arson
case. Meyers has just come amongst
us, and we know noth?ng of his antecedents,
but if it is sought to charge
him with arson the law provides a
way. Neither council or any legal
tribuaal has the power to compel him
- to ie*tify under oath as was done the
other evening. Without -a warrant he
can not be arrested; and accused be
can not be compelled to testify in any
.court. If there is evidence against
Meyers, let a warrant be taken out as
prescribed by law. It is often said
that there is no power not assumed by
a town council, but we believe that
this is the first instance where a man
has been summoned to attend an in*
vestigation into a capital offense by
silch a body.
The Cape Verde fleet, it Is officially
-? v announced, has landed at Cadiz. This
. means that Spain will leave her West
Indies possessions to the mercy of tbe
United States. It will be no trouble
V- . whatever to laad ftroops in Cuba now
because Spain his ao fleet to prevent
~ it* One theory is that Spain will, send
2? her fleet to Manila and attack Dewey.
Tbe so-called Cape Yeide fleet would
be more than a match for the unarmored
Asiatic squadron, but in the
meantime our government will .see to
it that Dawey is not taken by surprise.
^ The companies in ca up at Columbia
have been thinned by the physicians,
and there is an urgent demand
for recruits. Already a battalion is
wanted to proceed to Tajnpa, and it is
not ready to respond. Of course,
companies desire to preserve their
organization, but this can not be done.
Those wh? volunteer are supposed to
do so from patriotic motives, and there
should be no kick about maintaining
the company organizations.
Editjr Gonzales, of the Columbia
State, has gone to Tampa to join the
regular armr, and failing in that he
will join the Cuban army. Cuba has
no warmer friend than Mr. Gonztles.

Wlisn your stomach begins to trouble
you, it needs help. The help it
needs, is to digest your food, and, until
it gets ir, you won't have any peace.
Stomach trouble i? very distressing,
very obstinate, very dangerous. Many
oi most uaugervus uibe&seu uegiu
with ample indigestion. The reason
is that indigestion (soi-digeetion, notnourishment)
xccalcens the sostem and
allows disease germa to attack it. The
antidote is Shaker Digestive Cordial,
strengthening, nourishing, curative,
at cures indigestion and renewt strengh
and health. It dce3 this by strengthening
the stomach, by helping it to
digest your food. It nourishes you.
Shaker Digestive Cordial is made of
pure herba* plants and wine, is perfectly
harmless and will certainly care
all genuine stomach tromble. Sold by

However superficial, may lis one's
knowledge of (he State Constitution
and the statute law of this State, it
mu?t be clear to him that a town coun
cil has no more authority to examine
witnesses on oath as to .the cause of a
fire than a self appointed body of
men won Id hare. The right to examine
witnesses on oath carries with
it the power to compel the attendance
of witnesses. Who will dare say that
the town conncil had the power to do
this? Acting Istendant Crawford
practically admits that conncil had no
authority to order an arrest of a person
accused of arson, but where is the
law constituting the t:>wu council the
strand inquest? Was there any law
ubstituting the town council ot WiDn?boro
for the graad jury ? Clearly such
proceedings are ultra vires. Of sucb offense
as disorderly condnct on the
street council can take jurisdiction,
hut the Court of General Sessions
alone has jurisdiction of arson. Council
has not ?ven the power of commitment
in such case3.
We may say that our purpose in referring
to tbis matter was not to antagoniza
council, but merely to eall
attention to an assumption of power
that might lead to serious consequences.

LOVED HIS STATE'
Congressman William Elliott, in his
address on Memorial Day, delivered
at Charleston, referring to General
BrattOD, as reported in the News and
.Tnhn Bratton. ut)oa the secession
of the State, promptly raised a company
for State service, of which he
was elected captain. When our troops
were called upon to volunteer in the
Confederate servic; most of Lis company
refused 10 go, and Cratton ai
once volunteered as a private in
another compauy. While this refusal
to enter the Confederate service seems,
by the light of subsequent events, an
extraordinary thing, yet it is due to
the truth of history to siy that it was
not at ali an uncommon occurrence,
owing to opposition to serve out of ihe
State. Several companies of Gregg's
original regiment refused to go to
Virginia, although great pressure was
brought to bear upon them, and I saw
them march to Governor Picken's
headquarters, in Meeting street, under
command of a prominent officer, who
delivered a defiant address to the
Governor. Six companies of Ker
shavr'a regimont made a like refusal,
8ud it is duo to this fact that two
Charleston companies, the Brooks
Guards and the Palmetto Guards,
wf-re able to enter that regiment, Col.
Kershaw having been authorized^)
call for volunteer companies from all
paris of the State t? fiil tip his regiment:
Bratton was elected junior second
lieuten-mt of his company and served
a year as such, and was subsequently
elected lieutenant colonel, and fioally
bccame coloDel of the 6th regiment.
It will illustrate Bratton's fine sense of
duty, and perhaps be beneficial in this
time of war, to mention that, while
such a course was undoubtedly most
foreign to his nature, he determined,
although having do military training,
to manage his men according to strict
army regulations. "I would read a
regulation," he afterwards said, "and
would then put it absolutely into ef
lect." as m ouior cases, iuie iuauo
bim unpopular for a time, bat bis
soldiers soon learned to appreciate the
worth of such a man and ever afterwards
adored him. At the battle of
Seven Pities his command broke
through four lines of battle and be
feil de>perately wounded and became
a prisoner. In conrequence of hi?
gallantry Gen. Phil Kearney ordered
special attention paid him, and it is
due to tlii-J, in all humau probability,
that his life was saved. He served
under LoDg-itreet in Tennessee and
was complimonted bv him for gallantry.
He the-i returned to Virginia, took
part in all of Lee's wonderful campaigns,
and bis brigade was one of the
latt to give up at Appemattox. Scr
thoroughly did his men appreciate the
advantages of his fira discipline that
they voluntarily, althoegh paroled,
voted to retain their organization, and
marched in their usaai way to Danville.
Brattoa, like Hugood, and unlike
McGowan, was slow of 3peech and,
ordinarily in action, but in battle ha"
became thoroughly aroused, ihougb
never cxcited he became most animflfpfl.
Rnf ho was nltno-pthflr r>n
p&sed to an officer making noisy
and profaoe demonstration, as a few
were wont to do. Speaking of such
an officer, who led Bralton's men irto
a charge, he said, in his inimitable
manner: "lie scared ray men to death;
they were, not ussd to that sort of
thing, and could not uuderstand it.
Thev didn't need that to make them
fight. If he had not stopped I don't
believe they would have done a thing.'
Ilis lore of his State was intense.
A frisnd once said to him that the
State owed him something?that he
should be rewarded for bis services in
the war. Bratton at once answered,
1'If South Carolina owes me anything
I bcliove I should like to die knowing
that 6he wa3 in nay debt I"'
Like McGown, BrattoB's Jast
thoughts were of his old comrades.
In the moment of death he mistook a
spasm of the heart for a bullet shot,
and cried out: SBoys, I am wounded!
Take me out into the fresh air."
Such, in brief, is the military record
of these three dead comrades of ours.
I have not time to speak of their lives
as citizens. That record is as clesr
and]uoble as the other.
What was so well said of one of
them may wiih equal truth be eaid of
each, "a soldier of distinguished skill
and valor, a citizen devoted to the
rights and welfare of the whole people,
a man tried iu war and in peace, and
found equal to eyerv duty and faithful
to every trust."
Where in the world'* history shail
we find nobler representative's of a
people than these? When the Confederate
cause is called at the bar of
final judgment we are willing that its
fate should be determined by the lives
of these men.

comrades; they bare been sinzled oat
only because in the very recent past
they have been taken from up, and the

TO REPORT BATTLES LIKE BASE
W. B. Staart, an Atlanta Attorney, has a
Scheme to Revolutionize Journalism
W. B. Staart, crigiDally from South
'Carolina, but at present a practicing
attorney of Atlanta, with law offices
in the city cours building-, has devised
a scheme which, if sncceasful, will
revolutionize journalism ?:i the field of
Mr. Stuart is alto a telegrapher and
has worked twelve years in some of
?ha l?rar??Qt f oloarrn n Vi niSoc: in iha
Since the great naval battle between
the American and Spanish fleets at
AftanUa, Mr. Stoart has carefully
watehed the eagerness with which a
patriotic public had looked and looked
again for something definite fr?m the
gallant commodore, Dewey, and his
fleet, and except through Spanish
sources they bave looked in rain. Ue
saw the impatienc3 of mankind in
waiting until a dispatch boat could be
sent from Manila to Hong Kong, a
distance of about 600 miles, necessitating
a three or four days' delay in
receiving Dewey's report, and he said,
"Can electricity be a failure? Have
we got the old stage-coach method of
conveying communications?'' He
thought and thought again, and new
says he ha* solved the problem in such
a manner as will place the battleships
in direct communication with the
shore, and the battlefields in direct
uviuiiiuuivauvu i*iiu IUV viJivcj uvuvu
to the world. lie says these engagements
can bs reported by a system of
telegraphy something like the present
system of reporting base ball ga oes in
detail direct from the ball parks. So
sanguine is Mr. Stuart in bis belief
that he can make a success of bis
scheme he now engaged in organizing
a coinja y i;f 50 telegraphers to go
to Cuba and demonstrate it.
When seen by a Journal reporter today,
Mr. Stuart said: 4'Ycp, it i? true
that I am organizing a company composed
eolely of telegraphers to go to
Cuba. My id?a is to relieve the anxiety
of mothers, sisters, daughters and
wives while their loved ones are in
Ciba fighting for their country by a
system of telegraphy direct from the
scene of battle that will enable us to
report in detail everything that transpires
without waiting a week perhaps
to learn the news. Iu this enlightened
age there is a clamor for news
instanter in a crisis of this kind and I
nope 10 oe at?ie iu sausiy iue puunu
"But how will you acsomplisii this?"
he was asked.
"Ia answer to that qaes:i)n I prefer
to wait until I have placed my scheme
before the war department. Jast a*
soon as I have secured the requisite
number of telegraphers who will
accompany me I will ask my friend"
Congressman Livingston to place the
matter before the war department in
Washington, and if unfavorable 1 shall
then a?k the enterprising newspapers
to aid ma in my venture to secure news
'when it is news.' "
Continuing, Mr. Stuart said:
"AlrtaJy an electiical hon-e has
agreed to furnish one-tlrrd of the
material to be u-ed gratis. Ii would
be surprising to tell you how che*p
stvh n scheme could be sati.-fhCio-iJy

turns down my scheme I shall ih-11
a*k that we l>e allowed to accompany

believe my iC>rts will fail for lack of
financial aid. If they do, why wecan.
