ABBEVILLE, S. C.
c WPubllshed every Wednesdp at $2 a
year in advance.
Wednesday, Jan. 27,1904.
At Fifteen Cento.
LaBt Monday Mr. R. M". Hill bought from
storage In the Abbeville Warehouse 175 bales
of cotton at 15 cents.
Mr. T. P. Qaarles bought on the same day
81 bales from owners who had held their cotton
at home, paying the same price?15 cents.
When the cotton was being transferred, the
+ nnnron nonuort nr\TY\ mpnt.. WhPIl ?1
bystander suggested that be believed cotton
would reach 18 cents. Mr. Hill, as a sort ol
consolation to those who had Just sold, as
well as a oomfort to those who sold last summer
at 9 cents, replied: "Oh, yes, I think It
will go to 25 cents." Whether Mr. Hill meant
It or not, the look on the bystanders might
have suggested almost any old thing. When
a man sells ootton, he involuntarily concludes
that the buyer knows a great deal, of
which the great mass of us are ignorant. But
there are things in the cotton market which
even an editor does not know, to 6ay nothing
of a ootton buyer.
As a rule, editors are ever ready to give advice
about how farmers may get rich. They
even can tell farmers whether to sell or to
1?1 J 41?<a ?na Qrl 1 fnP in

all this land that will be very careful how be
assumes to advlie anybody. When a man
Bells 15-cents cotton at 9-cents, bis advise isn't
worth much. This editor has bad ail the concelt
knocked oat of blm, and is now In no
danger of offering advice on any subject. All
that be could possibly say In the future is
that be would do so and so, and, remembering
how we eold cotton at 9 cents, the farmer
can straightway do any other way than that
which we would do.
But all this aside. The Warehouse has
proved of great value to the people who bavp
stored cotton. It is a notable fact that, as far
as we have been informed, every customer of
tbe Warehouse has been pleased with bis
treatment, while tbe cotton has been safely
kept. Tbe Increase of price has made tbe
keeping of tbe oqtton a profitable act.
Wben cotton reaohed 13 oents quite a lot of
ootton was sold out of the warehouse. The
owners of the staple were perfectly satisfied,
and didn't want 16 cents. Now, a lot of cot
ton boa been Bold at 15 cents. No higher
price was wanted.
We don't know what has become of Mr. Joe
Nanoe, bat suppose his ootton is still In the
warehouse. He bought 100 bales at 9.40 cents.
If yon do a little ciphering you can then
gnees If he has made anything.
The Panama Canal.
In act Democratic Senators seem to be
faithfully and persistently opposing the Panama
canal, while all the time in their talk
proclaiming great friendship for and interest
In the canal. That Is oar interpretation oi
A caucus was held last Saturday for the purpose
of binding such Senators to the defeat ot
the canal as were looking to the interest of
For some reason, the caucus did not take
decisive action. At this distance, It may not
be known why action was postponed. But It
la fair to presume that at least some of the
Senators refused to delegate their consciences
and tbelr votes to the majority.
The building of the canal, like appropriations
to the Improvement ol harbors and riv.
era, la not a question of politics, and why
Demooratlo Senators should put themselves
on reoord as obstructionists when the public
welfare Is at stake has not been explained except
In the puerile and the childish claim of
being possessed of higher honor than others.
The oouree now being pursued in Washington
wonld seem to assure the defeat .or the
Demooratlo party next Fall. Should It be
.possible for the Democrats to defeat the
canal, they will deserve the defeat which Ik
anre to come.
If the canal la defeated, then Billy Bryan is
the man to lead the Democrats. He has successfully
brought defeat twice, and we know
of no one %ho conld be more safely relied
upon u> uniJK uuuut me uuvuiuuiuio ui uc
Democratic boets In the coming campaign.
The country will hardly pat confidence In a
political party that is on record as being opposed
to the material interests Qf tbe people.

ootton were sold on onr streets last Monday

cared onr peopl e in their boots. Cotton began

This lot of ootton was in tbe bands of tbe

bales on tbe market. This cotton was saved
by onr farmer* to raise money whenever tbey
might feel inclined to handle a little of the
If all tbe other little towns pat on tbe market
at moob cotton as Abbeville has done In
two days, the market will be glutted, and the
prices that went np like a rocket will come
down like a strike.
To Annex Panama.
The country need not be surprised at tbe
obstruction methods of Democrats in Washington,
but tbe bill of Senator Morgan of Alabama
to annex the new republlo of Panama
to this country Is a stunner and takes our
breath. Tbe proposition is better than we
could have doneourself.
At this distance bis proposition seems to be
tbe solution of tbe canal question. He would
give to Colombia fifteen millions of consolation
money. Would give Panama 510,000,000
and would appropriate money to buy out tbe
French stockholders in tbe bankrupt canal
. As far as we are able to see. Senator Morgan's
plan Is all right, and should have tbe
support of tbe Washington government from
tart to finish,
In case tbe oanal treaty should be defeated
by tbe obstrlotlonlsts, whether they belong
to tbe Democratic or Republican party, tbe
next best Iblng for this country is a war with
Colombia. In that event, Colombia and Panama
might be annexed. With the return of
peace and tbe establishment of a stable gov.
ernment In tbe region of tbe canal routes, a
canal would be built, which would, benefit
tbe world. Safe and stable government
would bring peace and prosperity to all tbe
territory so annexed.
The situation Is resolved Into this:
First?The ratification or the defeat of the '
oanal treaty. 1

Death of Dr. Mcllallt.?Entered into i
Test Sunday, January 17, 1904, Rev. Francis
Patrick Mullally, D. D., at Pelham Ma> or, 1
New York. His body was burled on Monday 1
In Greenwood Cemetery, New York, beside 1
that of his devoted and lamented wife. Mr.
Mallally was a distinguished Presbyterian
divine and was at one ume President of Adger

OaiubliiiK or Kpecnlntion ?
Dr. F. Y. Pressly has published In I lie Associate
Reformed Presbyterian an able article
on the prevailing habit of Rambling In cot- R
ton futures which obtains In Alaska.
The Doctor thinks that the buying of cotton
futures is gambling, pure and simple. There
are some things we do not know, (the future
nrino nf <rnMr>n for 1 tiRlancB.I and to doclde I
r*,vv w- ? i
whether the buying of any commodity is|tl
gambling or Is a Bin, Is beyond tbe power of j ?
our discernment. If they knew the luture T
price the people would risk the sin. h
If It be sintul to buy and to hold nn article tl
In hope of a future higher price, we do not Cl
see bow the same rule would not apply to the I'
man who holds his own product in the name c
On the same ground that speculation is P
wrong and therefore sinful, It may be alleged d
that it is of doubtful expediency to Invest in h
any enterprise, when the possibilities of loss
are present. P
There is almost nothing that can be counted V
as safe, except Abbeville school bonds, aud 0
they may be stolen from us while we sleep, or "

thieves should get the Doctor's bonds, be v
might wish that he had sold them to the P
Press and Banner at S120?the S2J being rise in >'
market value to his profit and showing the 11
Doctor's superior judgment iu buying the e
bODds. The Press and Bunuer was not sagac- c
lous enough to buy, wnen they were ai t
par. This newspaper bougbt shop bonds at t'
par Instead of buying School bonds at their ^
face value. The shop bonds were exchanged H
for almost any old price, somo as low as 7">
cents on the dollar, and we would now buy ?
school bonds at a good premium. h
There Is no doubt that It is sinful to reck- C
lessly waste estates, whereby ourselves or c
our families are brought to want. There is
o division of sentiment on this point,
rhere can be no doubt as the slnfutnesn and ^
the demoralization of gambling. Gambling ''
may properly be classed as one of the greatest ^
evils. It Is worse than drunkenness. Not one a
gambler In a thousand succeeds In saving ^
- - -- n
Now,about holding.cotton, or ouying inn *"
sell again. I* that gambling ? Reduced to f
tbe last analysis it looks a little that way, 1
but whether slnlul or not, the result is gen- a
erally disastrous to. tbe speculator, or gam- '
bier. If you will. 8
But what would you do with tbe gudgeon r
who sold his prospective cotton crop at 9 P
cents, but didn't make It, and tben had to
buy It at 10 1-2 cents ? Did be commit a sin, ^
or did he simply do a foolish thing ?
What did the farmer do who hauled his 0
crop to market in October, November or De- a
cember, and sold It at from 9 to 10 cents, or a
from 10 to 12 cents, when it is worth now In
January, more than 15 cents? Did they spec- ?"
ulate or gamble in selling at tben low prices, "
or did the man,who held his cotton commit
a sin ? j
To draw the line where purity leaves ofl
and where sin begins Is a difficult problem r
"" "JW f,
As a layman, without reference to any
queetlon of gambling or sinfulness, this ne wb a
paper believes speculation (or gambling, 11 a
you will) Is extremely hazardous. In tbe .
commercial world It Is almost as Injurious 10 *
one's credit as gambling at cards or dice or
horse raolng. If we are rightly Impressed, 8(
money lenders, or banking Institutions, arc ?
doubly cautious in dealing with gamblers or
plungers. Dealers in cotton futures do themselves
great injustice in breaking down tbe c
stability of their credit.
If Dr. Pressly would urge the danger that is
present, and the evil that is almost sure to ^
come sooner or later, to every speculator in
cotton, be would do good in proportion to bis ,,
restraining influence. It is needless to argue
tbe sinfulness of speculation, or gambling in ^
cotton. The fear of material injury or lossol ^
property and credit is more potent than any .f
argument about tbe sinfulness of buying or j
selling cotton. For instance: It would be a
hard to oonvluoe any one tbat it is a sin 10 ^
bay cotton. It ie tbe clanger in doing so, that
should deter us from going Into the quick ^
As a matter of fact, few of us would hesitate j|
to buy cotton today at 15 cents?If we onl> ^
knew for a certainty tbat It would go to25
cents, as predicted last Monday bi Mr. K. M.
Hill. And It would be hard for tbe best man c
In the world to convince tbe speculator or the ^
gambler of the sinfulness of buying, and that ^
it was bis duty to refuse the profit.
It is the danger and not tbe Bin that will
This editor sold bis prospective twelve bale
crop at 9 cents. Anybody can figure out tbf
loss. Mr. Joe Nance bought 100 bales at about
9 40. Anybody can figure bis gain.
As to the result: The editor was taught n
severe lesson. Mr. Nance has made a big pllt
of money. The effect on the .editor is, that |C
his first speculation on a dozen bales will do It
blm. But how about Mr. Nance ? If he is nol J
very careful, his 82,500 of profit will turn hit- p
bead so that be will see visions by day and
by night, and that be will try the same experiment
again, when the scales or the prices o
may go loe oiner way.
No, Doctor, yon can Dot restrain men by "
declarations of sin. The danger Is the thing
for you to present.

Good Roads. ct
Supervisor Nickels was in Columbia last qJ
week attending the Good Roads Convention, gi
He gives glowing accounts of the meeting,
and believes that Abbeville la making greater w
progress In securing public highways than K
even Chester. And then our roads are secured
at less cost, and are bet ter. h>
If he is not called down, Capt. Nickels will
make the roads so good that he will injure

him for damages.

Last Sunday morning Rev. Paul A.
'ressly conducted religious services in
le littte church around the corner,
lis text was : "Increase our faith." I
'he sermon was regarded by those who
eard it as the ablest auu me uesi
jat the preacher hail delivered in that
liurch. A brain that had been a idled
y Joss of sleep or from some oilier
HUses cat) give no intelligent report of
is remarks, but we can say that it was
erfecily orthodox, and included such
octnne as was acceptable to the devout
earts of those who listened.
Speaking back from the pew to the
ulpit, we would take the position that
e are not always responsible for either
ur belief or our faith. Faith, as we
nderstand, is founded on belief, and
elief is the result of the lessons which
W receive in childhood or from apeals
to reason in the more mature
ears. For instance: A child born
Jto any of the Christian churches;
mbraces the belief of that particular
hurch, and maintains the faith of all
,'hristians as taught in the Holy Scripures.
If a child is born a Buddhist or
labommedan, he likewise follows in
lie footsteps ot ?his fathers.
A child accepts the belief and the faith
f the father. This before the infant
as reached the age of reason. The
hild does not reason. In childish
onfideuce anil faith he accepts the
cachings of his parents.
But when the cnild has reached rnanood
or womanhood, if a change of beief
or faith comes, it is because his or
,er reason has been appealed to. Such
ppeals seldom add to the conviction,
ut often have the effect of creating a
oubt in the mind of the lnymau. No
ireacher should ever alt-nipt to prow
betroth of the spirituality as taught
u the Bible. No preacher should ever
rgue with unbelievers. His duty is
i) preach the gospel?that is to say, he
hould assert the truths, with never
eference to doubts. To undertake to
rove thine: is to admii of a doubt, and
his implied admission of doubt may
o infinite harm.
If the layman will walk in Ihc paths
f rectitude no solieiiude need befell
s lo his faith. His daily walk will
ttest his faith.
In one sense of the word no man ih
esponsiblefor his belief,except in that
e must guard against the influence
fhich would disturb the impress which
/as made upon his mind in childhood,
n the years of maturity belief is the
esult of conviction.
The great dahger of arguing or reajuing
is, that doubt may be created,
nd taht doubt may result in infidelity
8 to the spirituality which is taught.
A discourse on the increase of our
iitli is ever au acceptable theme for
be righteous, or for those who are concious
of the correctuens of their lives,
rare satisfied with the orthodoxy of

efer to that class of men who are folnving
their Lord alous; way oft", and
;ho are struggling with tne sins that
eset them. That class of liearers i*
hose who would cry unto the Lord,
Help thou mine unbelief."
Almost any kind of a learned disourse
will do for those who are com>rtable
in their faith, but talk of faith
? hardly satisfying to the hungering
eart which need* the helping hand
nd the encouraging word to bring
he wayward to the foot of the cross.
Something which might help to
Teak the fetters that bind him to
lis waywardness, or which might clear
be way for him to win the loving
ivor of our Saviour would be more
jrateful to those without the veil.
