The legislature the past week de
moted most of their time to the new

stands th.} bill provides for the
election of a State board of three

by the county boards.
The House has killed a strict
prohibition bill introduced by Mr.
Prince, ot Anderson, by a vote of
79 to 26, and is waiting upon the
Senate before acting upon the dis
pensar/ bills already introduced.
The indications are that a majority
of the House will endeavor to
prevent any legislation whatever
upon the diRpentary, unless it is
an unimportant features.

adopted. It was broadened so as

Mr. Chairman, it seems the

Now, Mr. Chaiman, I make
?articular objection to the e

loes seem to me sometimes
>ur efforts to civilize them s

Chairman, and history will bi
me out in that statement, that 1
South has made^this nation wb
it is to-day. And if this hi
?tate of civilization is presorv
[ believe it must be done by 1
statesmanship and talent of 1
South, ss the South has made
what it is to- day.
Mr. Chairman, during 1
lark days of 1776, when the fl
af revolt was flung to the bree
against the black-heart
despotism of Great Britain, it w
the South that gave to this nati
the sword of the Revolution in t
person of George Washington, t
father of his country-first
war, first in the hearts of 1
countrymen-who, after seven lo:
years of struggle, having but, as
were, a handful of un di sci pl in
yeomanry, triumphed over tl
enemy and prostrated her at t
feet^of the American flag and gai
us the independence which ^
enjoy to-day and made this count
the superior of any nation- upc
the face of the earth.
Mr. Chairman, it was the Som
that gave to this nation the pen c
the Revolution, in the person
Thomas Jefferson, who wrote tl
immortal Declaration of Indepenc
ence, that the gentleman fro:

It was the South, Mr. Chairmai
that gave to this nation the tongu
of the Revolution, in the perso
of Patrick Henry, who uttere
those noble words, "Give m
liberty, or give me death." Tha
spirit to-day animates every so
of the old and of the new Sont
and will continue to inspire tu.
hearts of her citizens tiU the en<
of time. [Applause.]
It was the South that gave t
this nation the greatest expounde
of the Constitution in Chief Justic
Marshall, and it was the Sout]
that gave to the nation the greates
reasoner of his day, Mr. J. C. Cal
houn, whose disquisition upon tha

Mr. Chairman, while, as I said
the South needs no vindication a
my hands, it comes with ill grac<
from any man from the North, th(
East, or the West to enter into t
tirade of abuse here against thc
Southern States. With how much
more of ill grace does it come from
one of her own sons, a mau nurtur
ed and raised at her bosom. Why,
Mr. Chairman, it is lamentable,
it ii disgraceful, that it has been
left for one of her own sons to cast
a dart of detraction at her fai
name, at this late day, in the per
son of the gentleman from North
Carolina [Mr. Linney.] But suffice
it to say that the dart of detraction
coming from that direction, has
fallen harmless at the feet of him
who cast it, and it will return as
boomerang upou his own head
He will live to regret the day that he
has sought to defame the name of
That distinguished gentleman
has taken occasion to lug into this
discupsion the election la^s of the
Southern people. I want to say
as far as the election laws of my
own State are concerned, that
am willing to have them investigat
ed by every member of this House
Take the constitution of the grand
little State of South Carolina
which I have the honor to
represent here in part, scrutinize
it and criticise it, and I defy you
to fined anything unfair or dis
criminating in that instrument
?You will find in it only such things
as you find in other constitutions
of the other great States of this
The gentleman went out of his
way to lug into this question
discussion of the question of lynch
ing, which has nothing to do with
it, and I say to the gentleman and
to every gentleman upon this floor
that if you wish to stop lynching
in the North, the East, the South,
and the West, you must first stop
the commission of the crime that
causes lynching. For so long ap
these diabolical crimes are com
mitted, just so long will the fiend
and the perpetrator be hanged
to the first limb or riddled with
bullets or burned at the 8*ake.
Remove the cause and the effect,
While I do not approve such
methods; while I do not have any
apology to make for them; wb.il*1
we all deprecate these conditions,
yeti repeat, PO long as these crimes
are committed just so long will
these thiugs occur. And I want
to take occasion here to say thai'
we have m the State of South
Carolina what is known as the
anti-lynching law, by which the
tegal repr?sent?es of a victim
of lynoh law can recover from the
county in which he li^es for the
injury done them. This shows
I that in my States we do not counte
nance lynching, but denounce it.
Yet it will happen, and will con
tinue to happen in some cases of
this kind, whenever the crime ie
committed that causes it. In my
State whenever a person is denied
a vote under the law he has the
right of appeal to the courts.
The gentleman had a good deal
to say about birds in his discussion
yesterday. I wish that he had goup
on aud told this House what he
thought of that bird which would
befoul its own nest, and I say he
ought to have given you a descrip
tion of that bird. [Applause.]
I want to say that gentlemen may
howl, gentlemen may tak as much
aB they please, but there is one
fact in natural history that I
want to give you here, and that is
that God Almighty never intended
that the blackbird or the crow
should get up to the top of the
mountain eyrie where che white
[eagle liveB and raises her brood
and whenever he gets up thorn
and interferes in matters which
do not concern him the white
eagle will be sure to kill bim. It
is unnatural for him to be there
You may rest assured that the
people of our sunny land will
always.act worthy of the name
of white men, before whose tread
the wild Indian, the counniug
Asiatic, and the ferocious Africon
alike recede. You may say what
[you please, but this is a white
man's country and a white man's
government, and the white people
intend to rule it now and forever.

W. F. ROATH,
Feb 7,1900. Master E.. 0,
The experiments of modern phy
sicians and .scientists have
established the fact that many of
the germs of disease enter the body
by the inhalation of air laden with
bacteria or microbes. These germs
are very small but their work is
deadly. Still many of them are
comparatively harmless in health ;
but aa soon as an organ is diseased
it is attached. Tho experimets
of Koch and others have shed much
light upon this important subject
But up to the present time the
culture of bacteria appears to have
met with much better success than
thei . destruction. As we can do
so little to destroy these minute
enemies, is not the most sensible
course to strengthen and revitalize
the system so that it may re )el
and resift their destructive in
fluence, and does it not seem vt ry
fitting that the revital:ziug ele vent
should enter the bcdy through
inhalation of ox~en which is at
once a revitalizer and germicide?
