TIIE FOREIGN POLICY FAVORED BY
THE NEWLY ELECTED SENATOR
Jackson, Miss., January 24-In
accepting the nomination as Uni
ted States Senator to-day Col.
Money arraigned himself in direct
opposition to Governor McLaurin
on the Venezuelan controversy.
Among other things, he said : ''As
a member of the committee on for
eign affairs I have always buen a
conservative in our foreign policy.
I hold the views of George Wash
ington in his farewell address, to
have no alliances but commercial
ones, and with the views of Thom
as Jefferson in bis second annual
message, to avoid all entangling
alliances. As a self-governing
people we have found it to our
profit and happiness to attend
strictly to our own business, and
not to interfere in any respect
with the poli'ical relations of any
other country. I stand for a policy
that means peace, plenty and high
prices for our products; that will
keep open to us the markets of the
world and promote commerce and
good feeling with other nations. I
shall not yield to the war spirit
that seems to have swept like a
wave over the nation. Our people
have warlike instincts anclare jeal
ous of the national honor, and can
be too readily induced in th^ir
generosity to interfere in affairs
when their protection is invoked.
In my humble judgment the most
unhappy consequence would follow
a war between our country and
Great Britain, the two English
speaking nations. We are descend
ed from them and have their blood,
their language, their literature,
their religion, and aro connected
by a thousand business and tocia)
ties. Tbev are our best customers,
and close relations with them will
not only insure to us iind them
perpetual peace, as between our
selves, but will also be a guarantee
of peace to the world. With the
United Stales and Great Britain
determined upon peace, no other
nation is powerful enough to make
war with another if they forbid i\
Emerson on Conservatism.
Ralph Waldo Emerson, in his
essay on conservatism npver
dreamed of the reformers and cou
, servatives of South Carolina, bul
; he knew all about the principle and
, policy of both, and here is what he
"The two parties which divide
i the state-the party of conserva
tism and that of innovation-are
1 very old and disputed the posses
* the m^ ^m^ncient world. The bat
1 tie of . ,-rician and plebeian, of
f parent slate and colony, of old
g usage and accommodation to new
facts, of the rich and the poor, re
' appears in all countries and times.
1 The war rages not only in battle
i fields, in national couueile and
ecclesiastical synods, but ^.gifirrw
advantages every hour. On rolls
' the old world meantime, and now
" one, now the other, gets the day,
I and still the fight renews itself as
i if for the first time under new
names and with hot personalities."
I "There is alwayB a certain mean
ness in the argument of conserva
- tism, joined with a certain supe
. riority in its fact. It affirms be
, cause it holds. Its fingers clutch
? the fact, and it will not open its
eyes to see a better face. The cas
tle which conservatism is set to de
fend is the actual state of things,
good and bad. The project of inno
vation is the best possible state of
thiuge. Of course conservatism
alwayB has the worst of the argu
ment, is always apologizing, plead
ing a necessity, pleading that to
change would be lo deteriorate. It
must saddle itself with the moun
tainous load of the violence and
the vice of society, must deny the
possibility of good, deny ideas, and
suspect and stone the prophets,
while innovation is always in \he
right, triumphant, attacking, and
sure of final success/'

A HANDSOME DESIGN FOR IT NOW
ON EXHIBITION IN THE OFFICE OF
THE NEWS AND COURIER.
News and Courier.
Architect Devereux bas sent to
the News and Courier office a hand
some drawing of a design for a
monument to Mart Gary, "the
Bald Eagle of Edgefield." The
drawing is handsomely colored
and shaded and is mounted in a
The design shows a Grecian
Doric shaft, three^feet, six inces in
diameter, resting upon a pedestal.
The column is capped and crowned
by a pile of camion balls. The
whole structure is supported by a
platform of granite -teps. On the
face of the pedestal is placed a
bald eagle with outstretched wing?,
clutching the shield of *-the State
in its talous, on which is .ascribed
the legend, "Warrior and .States
man." The name of M. W. Gary
is shown is raised letters cn the
surbase of the pedestal. The ele
vation to the top of the monument
is thirty-six feet. It is contem
plated to build the whole, of fine
cut granite, polishing the face of
thc pedestal for inscriptions of
battles in which "the Bald Eagle
of Edgefield" engaged.
The design is one of perfect clas
sic beauty. Mr. Devereux gave a
great deal of thought and work to
the production, and will ofter it to
bo hung in the Library of the
State House. Should a monument
to the Warrior Gery ever be built
no handsomer or more appropriate
design could be chosen than that
made by Mr. Devereux. The pic

VISION OF JOSEPH HOAG, 1803.
In the year 1803, in the eigth or
ninth month, I was alone in thc
field when I observed that the sun
was shining, but that its bright
ness was eclipsed as by a mist. Ap
I reflected my mind was struck in
to silence the most solemn I had
ever known. I said to myself,
'What can this mean?' I do not
recollect ever before of having been
sensible of such feelings.
Then all at once I heard a voice
from heaven saying: "This which
thou sees', which dims the bright

lifted up my eyes and, behold! 1
saw au immense panorama on the
m?6t, in which was shown things
which I knew had passed but a few
months or years before, and others
which I have every reason to be
lieve will happen in the near and
remote future. First the people
appoared as if dividing in great
heat. The division appeared to be
gin in the churches on points of
doctriue. It commenced in the
Presbyterian Church and went
through the variousdenominaiions,
and in each case those who held to
their ancient principles appeared
sorrowful and dejected.
Then the trouble appeared in
what I took to be a lodge of Free
! masons, raging with great violence
until it set the whole panorama in
an uproar. Next the trouble arose
in American politics and did not
cease until it produced a great civ
il war and the shedding of abund
ance of blood.
In the course of this great strug
gle slavery was annihilated and
the divided States were finally re
Then a monarchical power arose
and took the government of the
Staten. This done, they establish

sky, and was on ' i point of faint

OUR COUNTRY NEEDS IT-GOLD!
The principal objectai this company are to buy,
sell and operate gold mes.
Perhaps you cannot ?Tor J to buy an entire gold
mine, but you can havan interest in several valu
able ones through us.
Enormous fortunes ave been made in gold min
ing, but never were tb opportunities greater than
they are to-day.
The ownership of a tew Bares of our stock may
make you rich.
8ome of the wealthiest mi of to-day became so
through mining. The cry ofho whole world is for
Gold ( and its value and n^ssity is being more
fully appreciated each day.
AU precious mineral discaries are practically
gifts to tho people. Each pern is entitled to what
he can fairly get. Why not trtor yourself through
es now ?
Splendid opportunies for sering great bargains
in mines come to us constant I Our agents are re
porting from the gold fields' this continent and
from Africa. The companying two promising
properties in Cripple Creek. \ propose to develop
one of the most remarkabltwell-proven placer
mines m the world. It has aady produced about
$2,000,000 by erudo surface >rkine, and ls esti
mated to contain over $25,0003 in gold.
Now is the time to invest vj us. Do not wait
until every man, woman andild la eager to buy
feld prices havo advanced enoously.
In 1887 the first shipments of gold, amounting to
less than $000,000, were made from South Africa,
In 1894 the production was nearly $40,000,000. It It
estimated that works under way and contemplated
will produco $100,000,000 per year.
Less than five years ago Cripple Creek was un
known as a mining camp. In 1892 it produced
$200,000. It is now producing $4,000,000 per month.
Two old men, Ured out and almost hopeless, not
.nany years since clung desperately to a small hole
i?< the ground which showed some traces of gold.
1 hat. hole has since yielded over $3,000,009.
The Idaho Mine has paid nearly $6,000,000 In
dividends, tho Crown Point nearly $12,000,000, the
Belcher over $15,000,000.
We know of no other prominent Industry paying
such large dividends on capital invested aa fully
developed producing gold mines. The rate of 25 per
cent, per annum ls quite common, while phenom
enal returns arc made in many instances.
