Austin Corbin, president I thc
Corbin Banking Corni-uv, with
which our people had much to do,
was thrown from his carriage al
Newport N.'K. cn las! Thursday
The cry of the g ?Idbugs for "hon
est" .money. Thecrthodos old tim'1
Democrat us -d to call it "hard"
rooney bet as silver is really the
harder molal the lingo was chang
ed to suit tho demands.
Gov. Boise of Iowa is the most
probable nominee o?" Ibo Demo
cratic convention at Chicago for
president, and he is decidedly the
liest man to win, ail things con-,
sidered. Tillman flabbergasted his
chances by to$ much "bolt" talk
There does'nt seem to bo a par
ticle cf doubt that silver will con
trol-at the Chicago Democratic
convention. Tho New Yojk Her
ald a gold paper, gives the follov
ing figures. For silver 503; for
gold 373; doubtful 34. So in any j
e\->nt, no matter how the doubtful
34 go, silver will control.
Boise is almost as far-4n tho
lead for the Demoaiaiic nomina
tion for president as McKinley is
for the Republican nomination.
In a recent speech at Des Moines
Gov. Boise said he expressed con
fidence that if the Democracy
would make nnance the overshad
owing issue this 3Tear and a brief
platform unequivocally demand
ing free .silver coinage it would
carry all the south and west and
Illinois, Indiana and Michigan.
; The Washington Post (mdepc n
dent,^- introduced in its dispatch
from Louisville on tho free silver
victory in Kentucky. "Tho con
-vention today proved tbo Water
loo of Secretary Carlisle and per
haps of Democracy in Kentucky.
It does cot matter now about 'that
letter' from Mr. Cleveland. Many
men will always believe (hat he
was waiting to see which way the
thing was going and that had it
gone his way he would have ac
cepted thc nomination."
Judge Simonion has just deci
ded that the dispensary law is un-J
constitutional in so far as it pro
hibits citizens from buying li
quors abroad and bringing them
into the State by rail or otherwise.
The decision concludes as follows:
"The prosent Act gives to cer
tain persons, the Board of Control,
the sole power of. purchasing and
importing into this State an article
recognised as cn article-of com
merce. The monopoly is vested ip
them '>y provisions of such strin
gency and secured by such extra
ordinary sanction? thal "very oth
er person of tbi.s State and all citi
zens of other States aro absolutely
deprived cf competion with thom",
thus the products, as well as tbb
citizens of other State?, are dis
criminated against ani interstate
commerce is destroyed."
The Big Ones.
The avowed candidates for thc
United States Senate are John Ga

Keifct of Newberry and Donaldson
of Greenville. For Governor ; W.
H. Ellerbe of Marion, J. R. Har

D. Mayfield for Superintendent of ?
Education. Lieutenant Governor,
W. H. Timmerman wilj be tho on

Character of Governor Boise.
A gentleman fronrDos. Moines,
Iowa, was in our cilice on Tuesday
of this week a travelling man, of
more than ordinary intelligence.
We fell to talking of politics in
the'west and of Gov. Boise, just
now tho m?gt probable nominee
for President. He said : "I know
Gov. Boise (pronounced Boys)
personally. H? is of i; different po
litr'oa? party from myself and I
shall vote for McKinley for presi
dent. But tho good Lord has
never made a higher type of mau
than Horace Boise; he is as pure
asa woman; and should he be
nominated by the Democratic con
vention at Chicago he will make a
candidate 'against whose private
character no man can say aught
with truth. He is a no"ble
type' of humanity and should he
be 'elected Piesident will adorn
the position-so far as character
is concerned, as few presidents
have done; he will bo emphatical
ly a high man in a high place. At

Tennessee Centennial .Exposi
This exposition in commemora
tion of the one hundreth anniver

lo97 and continues to October Sis1
1897. lt will be State, National and
International in character. Tho
st??ug features of the Exposition
proper will come. from every part
of the world. Tennessee will prop,
?rly eh?w her n sources and illus
trate ber history.
"A unique f ature" of the Exposi
tion will be Iii?' buildings of the
fraternal orders and societies. The
Knights of Pythias have already
arranged f?r.b?ilding their head
qua: tors on the ground, and th*'
Concatenated Order of Hoo-Hoo
has also made a like preparation.
This building will be in the shape
of a huge cat ?sixty feet high, with a
tail in .air* like the well-known
mack cat of the order, Up the front
leg of the big cat will run an ele
vator, and in the head of the beast
will.he an observ?t ?ry.

Fr-un the Augusta correspon
dre of the Columbia Stele wt
rcfifiy the following interview vWntb
Sensftoir Tillman :
Senator Tillman, now better
know as Pitchfork Ben, came d own
from Washington on Thursday.
He has been spending a few days
quietly at his hom^. He will not
return io Washington before con
When I asked him about the
boii?l matter he said he would not
rep.y to The Times article ; he had
no time to notice ever}' such charge
'.made hy lying correspondents" of
newspapers, and when the charges
were presented in regular form by
some responsible part}- he would
answer them. If Governor Evans
and Dr. Bates wanted to answer,
all well and good. He said he was
in Augusta cn route to Indiana,
where he will deliver a series of
speeches this week at Lebauuon,
Carterville and other points.
Next week he v iii deliver speeches
Senator. Tillman says lhere is
nov,- no question about the attitude
of the Chicago convention as to
free sil ver. Kentucky's act ion made
the result cocksure, ile says it is
bound to be fer free silver from
first to last. He is of the opinion
that a Democratic national victory
depends on the man placed at the
head of the ticket. He say3 Boies
is now considered the most likely
man in Washington, but he fears
Boies ?3 too recent a convert to
Democracy to win. Ho gays the
Republicans are beginning to show
signs of great .?neasiness.
Tillman does not talk of his own
boom at all. He says the Chicago
convention is ?'oing to be for IG to
1 all right, but the "bust is going
to be made by the gold bugs."
A Soap Factory^
Spartanburg has a soap factory.
Here is what tao Herald says of
it: . ' *
"The Carolina Soap Factory is
an assured fact. Right here in
Spartanhurg there is a soap facto
ry in operation that is turning out
good laundry soap by the car load.
Lp to ibis date o??y laundry soa*p
is made. "Thc Caroline" is the
only kind we Lave seen, but it is
equal-to the "Octagon" which is
considered star dard. The compa
ny is now prepared with wrappers
and boxes so as to ship by the
car load. One advantage to the
people of the county is that n de
mand is creator] for all sorts of
grease. Tallow will he bought in
small or large quantities. This
being a horne enterprise it should
be encouraged. Tons of soap have
been au hua) ly shipped ?o this
market. Why not bry from the
factory here and keep the money
moving around at home? Give it a
trial and von will lind it as good
as any so?p on the market."

Time to Speak.
Por so verdi mouths, tho Green
ville Nos, Spartan burg Herald
and other State papers have been
making serious charges with ref
erence to the refunding of the
State debt in 1893. The Regist-r
has published the only answer to
these charges, an answer which
was much too vague and indefi
nite in view of the specific na
ture of the charges. It was little
more than a general disclaimer
and the reporter was requestod not
to use tho name of the officer who
gave it. It is high that Senator
Tillman, Governor Evans or State
Treasurer Bates gave tho public a
more definite deina! of the very
serious charges which have been
made, for papers beyond th J bor
ders of the State aro taking them
up and ringing the changes upon
them. Further silence on the part
of be State officers who had
charge of the bond deal will injure
South Carolina and they should
speak out plainly. The Register
republishes to-day from the New
York Times a long dispatch from
Baltimore, giving an alleged his
tory of tho rotunding transaction.
It will be se?*n that grave charges
are pre erred n gai us', Tillman,
Balesand Evans, -with some show
of proof. To let those charges g'i
uiicontradicted will injure South
Carolina's credit abroad and bring
ber government into disrepute. Ii
tlnV are not refuted, Northern
capitalists will accept silence as
tantamount to a confession of
guilt and will tight shy of sending
enpitaJ for investment into a State
whose government they believe is
corrupt. The Register does not be
lie ve that there W?S the least
crookodufrs about the .South Caro
