ie Democratic lided :
OF NEW YORK.
ADLAI E. STEVENSON,
Spartan burg is to have a Cotton
Exchange with Mr. Chas. Speights
at its head.
Nineteen babies who were christ
ened in New. York last week were
named after Columbus, and when
the enfant terrible was a girl she
was christened Columbia.
Let every Democrat get up his
registration ticket and be ready, to |
march to the polls bright and
early on, the 8th of November1-|
next Tuesday-and vote for Till
man and Cleveland.
Abbeville has secured the work
shops of the Georgia, Carolina,
and Northern Railway Company.
This will k've our sister towna
boom permanent and healthy with
no mushroom business about it.
The trade issue last week of the
Aiken Journal & Review was a
most creditable piece of woi k. And
it is hoped at no distant day, when
our grand hotel and water works
are accomplished facts, that some
one of our Edgefield papers may
essay the same paths' as y?t un
trodden in Edgefield journalism.
. . The services of Gov. Tillman
have been sought by the Demo
crats of Tennessee to aid them in
their canvass against Harrison.
He has a again been solicited to
go to North Carolina. Gov Till
man has a national reputation ne a
great leader of men. The pressure |
of State business has prevented
his acceptance of any of these
A hotel with 6,124 rooms is the
latest creation among Chicago's
enterprises auxiliary to the World's
Fair. A hotel that will cover ten
acres of ground and put a roof
over the heads of as manypeople as
could be housed in ten establish
ments the size of the Palmer
HouSe is the size of the one projec
ted. The plan is the resnlt of an
effort to supply World's Fair
visitors with sleeping accommoda
tions. a| one dollar a night each.
COLUMBUS WASN'T IN IT.
The celebration of the discovery
of America by the four hundied
children of the Graded School
tinder the leadership of Prof. Duffie
and assistants, was witnessed by
three hundred persons.?-Sumter
A most wonderful story, that 400
Sumter school children discovered
America and that Prof. Duffie
helped 'em do it 1 The Watchman
must make credible statements if
it wishes to find believers.
THE LAW DOES IT. *
Gold is no more money than is
paper. Nothing is money in any
full legal sense until it will pay a
debt without a possibility of are
fusal. You cannot compel a cred
itor to accept uncoined gold, and
ninety-nine hundredths of them
would refuse to do so. It is not
intrinsic value but the government
fiat that makes gold coin good for 1
all debts, both public and private. ]
Within the jurisdiction of the J
United States intrinsic value is of
no account whatever in establish
ing the character of money. It is
law that does it.-Spartanburg
One would suppose from the (
above editorial utterance that the \
Herald is a Greenback or a Third !
Party paper, but it is far from it,
and really believes, no doubt, that | ]
the United States could call in all
the silver quarters in circulation,
re-coin and re-stamp them each as
one dollar, and that they would
pasB as such simply because the
"law does it."
Those Fraudulent Bonds. I]
Gov. Tillman is right when he
says- that the State cannot be (
forced to recognize the repudiated '
fraudulent bonds owned by in- ^
terested capitalists,, and will never
<lo it, no matter what the cost may *
bo. In this position he will find *
himself unanimously supported by *
ihe taxpayers of the State. Those *
bonds were fraudulently issued by
the gang of freebooters, foisted 11
upon the State by Federal power
and kept there by the same means
The native white South Carolinians ^
ihe the payers of the State, had no ?
voice in the matter' and made no 1
promise, either dirct or implied, to
meet the obligations contracted by
this alien white and native negro
State government The bonds
loing fraudulent to start with,
....opudiation was an act of justice to f (
??hose upon whom the burden of t
payment woul d have fallen ; there- I
".ore an attempt to force the State, i
at this late day, to recognize those 1
?*mds and make provision for ?
?heir payment is both foolish and i
South Carolina can and muBt e
?pay all her honest debts' but
those bonds will not be paid so
long as the white taxpayers rule

The Snake's Hot Meal.
A young professional gentleman
of this city recently travelled over
land to Tappahannock. On the
route he discovered a large black
snake slowly crawling among the
branches of a tree that stood by
I the roadside. Following the snake
I with his eyes, the observer 'saw, an
unusually large hornet's neBt
I attached to one of the branches of
the tree and toward which the'
snake was advancing.
When close to the nest the snake
coiled itself about a limb, released
its tail, and with it gave Be vera!
hard raps upon the exterior of the
nest, as if knocking for admission.
The noise of the blow and the
swaying of the nest caused the
hornets to leave their home apd
I prepare for an attack upon the in
truder. The snake ceased tapping
with its tail as soon as the hornets
left the nest, uncoiled itself, and
quickly disappeared, taking the
place of the hornets within tfceir
Presently the snake's head was
seen to peer out,. and his bright j
eyes .glistened as he adticipted a
feast from which the bravest man
would shrink with fear. The snake
drew his head within the entrance
hole to the nest till nothing was |
seen of it except an occasional
forked tongue, that darted in and
out with lightning rapidity.
^Thinking the coast clear the
hornets began to return to their
nest, when the snake took them in
as rapidly as they could enter.
Watching the proceeding for some
time, our informant concluded
that all ihe hornets had been safely
hived, and he stood up in his
buggy, tap ped the nest with his
whip and awaited the result.
. No hornets appearing, the nest
was knocked t othe ground, opened
and his snakeship discovered in
a torpid condition with his size
That snake was killed and a
postmortem held with the follow
ing result : Stomach stuffed with
dead hornets. ?s

He Didn't Wait for Him.
Not long ago in St. Louis one of
those unfortunate creatures called
"mashers" sent to an estimable
young German lady a letter,
adding this postscript :
P. S.-That my darling may
make no mistake, remember that
I will wear a light pair of pants
and a dark cutaway coat. In my
right hand I will carry small cane
and in my left a cigar. Yours,
The father replied courteously,
stating that his daughter had
given him authority to represent
her al. the appointed time and
place. The postscript added wa
as follows :
P. S.-Dot mine son may make
no mistakes, I will be dreshed in

THE ELECTION UPON US
How The State Leaders View Thc
Senator Irby reached the city
yesterday afternoon. He was seen
by a reporter and asked to give an
expression of his views upon the
political condition of the State.
"I think," he said, "that Sonth
Carolina will go overwhelmingly
for Cleveland. I have written the
Democratic county chairmen
and received replies from every
county except Yorfc, Chester, and
Greenville. With the single ex
ception of Sumter, where the cou
nty chairman says the Republi
cans will get a majority for their
Presidential electors and Con
gressional candidate, the reports
are all the same and indicate
"What do you think will be the
vote polled by the third party?"
"Well, we have 102,000 white
voters in the State. In the late
Democratic primary election
000 voted. The third party may
account for the remaining 14.000
voters. Even this, however, I do
not admit. I realy do not believe
there will be 6,000 third party
votes cast in the State. The only
reports I have received that indie
ate any vote for that party is in
Pickens, Ocor.ee and a part of
Anderson. In the other counties
they do not include one out of
twenty voters. In Aiken the coun
ty chairman says that if there ifi
any third party supporters in the
county he has not heard of them."
"Will any of the farmers who
voted in the recent primary vote
"No. It is an insult for any one
to say so. They know that the oath
binds them as much to sustain the
national as the State nominees.
"Since 18761 have?never known
farmers to prove disloyal to the
party. They were openly indignant
at the town people voting against
Tillman for Haskell in 1890.
Surely now they would not com
mit a greater crime by forswearin g
themeslves and renigging' on the
Democratic nominees. The leader
of the third party in this State hon
estly abstained from- voting
because he intended voting for
General Weaver. He now would
not bo so unfair as to ask a man
ivho did participate in the primary
to vote for the third party nomi
"The friends of Governor Till
man who have stood by him in two
elections could not afford to vote
for a third party candidate in this
election because it would justify
the bolt against the regular Demo
cracy in 1890 in favor of Judge
Easkell. The men who sustained
Baskell tn 1890 were under no oath
to vote the Democratic ticket."
The Senator waB informed that
the State had inquired very
inxiously on several occasions
vhat disposition he had made of
the party funds.
"When I was elected State chair
nan," he said, there was about
&2-,000 in the -treasury. There fe
low nearly $3,000, and sixteen
?ounties are yet to hear from. In
iddition to this," he said with a
winkle in his eye, "I have whipped
m Independent State ticket, and
im now prepared to clean up the
Republican and third parties."
Senator Irby will remain in
Columbia until Tuesday.
He will open regular headquarters
?ere for the party on election day.

"That's odd you didn't," he said
