Now we underhand why Great j
Britain, Ra^ia an i all the great pow- j
?'? ?i*fl mnr.li interested in China, and j
why eojae people are so anxious for I
the United States to enter the squabble.
It is the ?ame old story?greed
for the yellow metal. A story is going
the rounds of the press that Utd ed
Slates Cocsnl George F. Smithtr-,
located somewhere in China, h<n made
a report to chis Government that in
certain parts of China gold is found.
That's enough, tiaen*' ureat dhim j
gone to war i:i South Africa to gain
possession of the gold mines there?
Are we not wsging a war in the East
now to increase oar commerce? The
love of money is at the root of wars
in these days, and already ibrre
is serious talk that the United Stales
mast insii-t on 'the ?>pen d >or." in
China, even if it mast be done by
force of arras.
Bn' it will be well to investigate
Consul Smithers' repot t before sendJrw*

The story is that the Chinamen turn
geese into the gold fields and the geese
eat the gold. The Chinamen then bill
the geese to get the metal. Wtat a
boom this will make in the geese I uuness.
Of course, a goose is good only
one day. When the fowl has been
Slied with the preeious stuff, it must
be killed and a iresn goose-miner pm i
in the next day to fill the plsce of the I
dead one. This will create a great
demand for geese, bnt geese will be
worth something in China?literally
about their weight in gold. All of
this slory sounds very incredible, bat
it is said to be the offi rial report of a
United States consul.
Next Thursday has been set apart
by the Governor of the State as a day
of thanksgiving. Often these days
are not observed, and it is not too co?v
to nrgernpou the community the importance
Of observing thisdiy. Apart
from a religious standpoint, the day
should be observed. The huinao mind
and body needs a relax once in a while
from toil, *nd especially from worry.

will be benefited by a rest?even this
one day?from cares and the monotonous

A fight will be made in the Georgia
Legislature to repeal the law, by
wbieh judges and solicitors are elected
bv tbe people. The Angnsta Herald
6ays that the law making tbe election
by the people, and not by fhe General
Assembly, has worked well. It argues,
Eocndly we think, that members of the
General Assembly often know nothing
of the legal talents of the candidates,
ana that each circuit ought to elect its
own officers. We have often thought
that the Georgia law would be a good
thing for South Carolina. Judges are
generally elc?ted by the General Assembly
out of that body, for the obvious
reason that tbe candidate is gen"
eraiiy better known by the members. |

Mr Editor, I have been very much

I think they ought to commend yonr
paper to the people, of our county. I
agree with you when yon say, between
Bryau and McKinlev you wii! take
Bryan every time. I Jeel like saying
me too. I don't want any Republicanism
in mine, not this uai.i.aryism,
imperialism, and republicanism with
all of greed and avarice, hoodivinkinjr
and bamboozling ia my pontics. I
feel confident that those jOf our peopie
'in the South and West vrLo endorse
McKinley'f policy will, if ihey live
the time ailotted to man, realize the
mistake of the views they now entertain.

nv TCTK BATTLE OF f
JR?< Av?'y v- ? ?
2?r Editor: T saw ?ud r-.ad a piece
iu The News and Herald, written by
one Joel Hough, who belonged to the
2nd 5 C. Regiment, about a Sergeaut
Rerafccrt of that regiment, in regard to
the stcond ?"o;d Harbor fi^ht. Well,
having b-.-eu ihere, aiid a member of
Company G, 3rd Batta ian, will give
you a few thoughts or lines as to my
recollection of the same, and ;be part j
I played in that fight. 1 win no Odes i
a few days before ihe fight a'nl tell a
few things that happened <;nr march
from Hanover Junction to Cold Harbor.
The 20th S. C. Regiment joined
Kershaw's Brigade, said 10 hive been
1,200 strong, in command of Col.
Keitt. Some of the boys said that
Kershaw's Brigade had joined the 20. h
Regiment, as it had more men thia
our brigade. Be tbat as it may, we
landed at Cold Harbor after dark an.l
were feeling our way very cautiously,
uot even a whi>psr or rattle of eanteen
was allowed, aDd stopping every
few steps. We suddenly came to a
hilt, about-faced, and marched back
and around up the hill where we
camped for the night in a field and
with very little fire. The next day we
moved out, the brigade in command of
Col. Keitt. The 3rd Battalion, under
Capt. Wbitener, was thrown out on
au old blind road on the flank, to
guard against any flankers. General
Kershaw was in command of the
division that dav. The brigade moved
forward under Col. Keitt, through the
field into the woods, found the Yankees
behind breastworks, and moved
* ' 'v - * - -t. tkAm Tho
Draveiy 10 me iasK uexuie iucuj.
20th was in the ceDtre of the line.
Some of the older regiments bad gotten
to the works and were paasing
over when the word ran along: the line
that Col. Keitt wa3 killed. The 20th
became panicky and gave way. When
the Yankees sa;v the confusion they
poured through the gap made and the
whole line fell back. A line was
formed, part of which was ju3t in
trout of a piece of woods ana part
extending through the field to the
piece of woods that we (that is the
2nd ftegimenl 3rd Battalion) had to
retake a few days later. V ell, the
battalion was left in front nearly one
mile, when the brigade fell back. We
were ordered out late in the evening,
and going out had several men wounded.
When we got out, there was no
room for us on the front line, so we
lay m the woods with the 2nd Regiment
behind. Gen. Kershaw's headqusrters,
which were in a house near
the line of battle, had tour pieces of
artillery in front. We lay there until
the next evening, *hen we were
ordered to go to the right and retake
the works that were spoken of by Mr.
Hough. Ic tie confusion that is
aiways in & fight, we ou tho lefv of the
battalion, two companies were ordered
by the left flank at a double quick, and
when we bad gone seme distance,
found that the others had gone to the
right. We fell in with the 8th Regi
ment and stayed until nrx'- day,Then
we wpi;! over and joined the battalion.
I tell vou it ?/as a clo.^e shave to get
thpre, a? d when we di J, had to come
oat a?ain quickly, as there was no
mom for us in the ditch I think the
next .lay the enemy had a battery tbut
was di-mounting cur guns as fast as
th'-y were put up. A cad was taacte
tor sixteen rm-n to ?0 to the front and
si5o?jce ihosc gu^e. I had cbaigc of
tlie sixteen me> w'jo went. We
we.iced onr way up a ravine, then to
ibe br;W of a hill in thu woods, where
we dujr pi;s. When *ii wr.s ready, I
placed eight men in each D:t and gave
the order to fire, which they obeyed
with a will At lt;e first volley the
Yankee sharpshooters were nut over
sixty yards from u*, and I t?ll you
they aia not fctay there long-, nor did
they retnrn the 6re. We could no:
see the battery for the smoke which
was belched forth from the guns. It
was not long before tbey were silenced
ror god. It was said by a Yankee
prisoner ihst (very horse was either
kilifeii or di'ablfcd, and so were the
men. I know that I shot about eighty
rounds there in a short time and th >se
guns never shot any more from that
point. Tns enemy charged Gen. A. 1'.
Hill's snd Hoke's divison on our rieht
and I fell you it was awful to see the
slaughter at that point.
