? " McLaurin will not get 10,000
votes in the whole state unless he

Political education is much to
be desired by South Carolinians,
and colleges are plentiful.
There is no need of editors hunt

there will be conductors and "free

The Golf players bring more

Printer-Governors seem to be
getting popular. Alabama and
South Carolina each have one and
now Georgia has announced the
candidacy of a printer-governor,
Colonel E?till, of Savannah. We
are sure that printers can make a
good impression, as that is a part
of their business. And we hereby
nominate Bud Russell.

cording to his article in last
isyie^ It is a good plan to j
nave hell located so you may
stay away from it. Better to
locate it while living than to
take up abode there after you
die. Bro. Bigham will miss
hell as far as any Mr. Man we
know of. We can't say this
for A(u )11, the editor(s).
THIS IS TO DEAR BEX.
MR. Tillman, we hereby solemn
ly admonish thee to enter not into
the state of Ohio for the purpose
of speech making on lynch Jaw.
But if you do enter said state, my
dear Ben, do not say you favor
lynch law, but proclaim to thine
enemies the workings of thy dear
dispensary law, ar d how it has in
past years been thy present help
in time of political trouble ; that
it was instituted as a step toward
prohibition (?) but such an idea
is a back number, that it is a po
litical machine which put thee in
office and without which you could
never have been Boss Ben, with
the pitchfork fame. Tell them of
how cheap the liquor is bought
and after bottling it and putting
X's on it, that the profits are im
mense, nearly as good as a Texas
oil well. Tell them you are the
father of the dispensary and that
prohibition is dead and if selling
people all the liquor they can buy
will do any good, it will never be
resurrected. That the mission of
the dispensary is "Sell all whisky
possible to men and tigers and
establish new places of business ;
it is money we want. Drink and
be merry, Tor tomorrow we declare
a dividend. Deceive them, Ben,
you have a slick tongue. If they
succeed m "boxiDg" you they will
have accomplished a good thing
for this state-and others too. To
Ohio: We beseech the to consid
er well thy action before attempt
ing to "lay Ben by his lonely." He
sees more with one eye than most
people who have two. It was not
his musical pitchfork that made
him blind. He is not ready to be
received by our governor in a box,
and we do not want Ben, dear Ben
to get in a box with his toes turn
ed heavenward, the opposite di
rection of his spirit, and his many
friends sadly waiting by him to
hear him speak, but no voice they
hear. He has become too seri
ous to discuss politics and cuss
opponents. Tillman is a great
man with all his faults, but when
he comes to die, and has to give
account of his deeds and is sent
to his eternal destiny his name
will live on and ever be associated
with the South Carolina dispen
sary business and liquor traffic. AE
to where he shall go we know not,
but he haz friends at both places
Ohio, we will get along without
bim if you do as you threaten*
SYMPATHY VS. LAW.
WHEN a court, with twelve ju
rymen and a judge convicta
man, after hearing the evidence,
if this not final, why not abolish
the courts and let the judges re
tire, and save the expenses of the
courts. Col. Neal was tried and
convicted of violation of the laws
of this state and should serve his
just sentence. Because he was at
one time "prominent in politics"
and because "prominent citizens"
from all over the state "think 'he'
has been punished enough,"sign a
petition for executive clemeLcy,he
must be pardoned. If prominent
people are to overrule the cour I's 1
decisions, we say that politics and 1
influential citizens should take
the place of the courts. It does
not mean much to be convicted in
a court now-a-fbyB, for after being
sentenced, all that is necessary is
for "prominent citizens" to sign a 1
[petition for a pardon and, present <
it,after having served a part of tho \
sentence. The more money and in
fluence you possess the easier it
is. If a man is guilty when on
trial, ho is juBt as guilty after ser- J
viug half his sentence. Abide by <
the courts decision or abolieh the \
courts. If it is right to have them,
it is right to respect their findings.
Justice should overrule sympathy, 1
There are othere who are as guilty
as Neal, but Neal has been con- ?
victed and they have not. The
"prominent citizens" do not favor
letting the law take itB course, but
put up their opinions as superior
to that of the court.
BE NOT ENVIOUS.
Edgefield county is almost as
?modest a county as Atlanta is a
city. Allanta wants money and
advertising and Edgefield has au r
overpowering desire for office, ^
which desire has never been con
cealed. Amputation did not cure
and the few red hiUs remaining t
produce luxuriant crops of can- i
didates. Dr. W H Timmerman, r
who has been in office many years,
is said to be a candidate for gov
ernor and the county already has
three or four. There are six men r
in that county who are definitely 1;
out for something the size of a 1
gubernatorial or congressional _
prize, besides the 1 rising young f
lawyers' who want to be solicitor.
Edgefield has more representatives
on the democratic executive com
mittee than any other county and
it might be well for them to rule
the others out and have the next
campaign centered in Edgefield,
where about half the candidates
live."-Spartanburg Free Lance.
The motive that prompted the
above article is not pure. The ar
ticle plainly shows the envious
spirit of jealousy towards Edge
?field because she has some of the
brainiest, ablest, and most compe
tent citizens from which to select
?officers. The fact that she has so
[many representatives is conclu
I sive evidence that ' they have the
executive ability. Edgefield has
no desire to "conceal" anything.
-Sba lioliovoB-rrr-betrig kidd ftnd'dp
ing things openly Why put our
light under a bushel ? The Free
Lance gives its readers "it is said"
news. Be fair and name the "ris
ing young lawyers" who want to
be solioitor, and the "six men who
are definitely out for something
the size of a gubernatorial or con
gressional prize." Do like Edge
field-have no desire to "conceal"
facts There is plenty of good ma
I tefial to select from in Edgefield if
?your suggestion should be carried
out and the " campaign centered
in Edgefield." Wo do not want
that done, but had rather go be
fore the people and show Edge
field's ability. Once an employer
advertised for " a smart business
man" to take charge of his affairs,
anda beardless youth applied at
the office to secure the position.
The employer said " what, a young
man like you want to take charge ot
my business ; you have no beard on
your face?" The youth replied:
" If it is brains you want take me,
but if it's hair you want, get you a
billy goa!;." He was employed.
Some people are so narrow-mi oded
that a county line is as far as they
can see. Moral : If you want
men of ability go get them wherev
er they be. Look at their ability,
and not where they reside.
"The course of events has
shown itself to be extremely
indifferent as to the reputa
tion of the prophets.99
This same sentiment might
be aptly used in reference to
the relation of the public to
the ne wspaper. For instance
a man about town will declare
to you that on-such a day he
most positively will leave
town and enjoy the glories of
the Pan American exposition
in Buffalo. The paper so
states it, for thc edification of
the public and ?irough com
pliment to the individual, and
mayhap, if he be an Edgefield
man to give the exposition au
thorities fair warning of his
coming, that suitable prepa
rations ma}' be made in Buf
falo, against his arrival
when-lo, and behold, justas
the paper is being issued, that I
same person is seen leisurely1
walking around town, as if he ' j
had never even so much as?
heard of Buffalo, and worst :
of all, as if he never cared al i
straw about the reliability of j
the newspaper. They should
at least, solong as it has been
mentioned, go home and re
main a few days. So long as
he promised to be gone, let
him be "gone" somewhere
This is the inconsistency and
mutability of humankind. .
It will be stated at another
time on supposed good au
thority that a certain very
prominent gentleman or oth
erwise, in the community is
extremely ill, and it is print
ed, and lo ! as you read, he
walks by with all the evidence
of health. Of course, the
editor is glad to see him well
enough to be out at the same
time thinks a little longer stay
in doors might _have benefit
It is officially announced
that the summer school for
teachers will be opened on
Monday, the 22nd of July.
The teachers from far and
lear come in town to attend.
When they reach the Insti
tute building they find the
doors closed and no admit
tance can be gained. One
says to the other, " the paper
>o announced it, but then you
enow we've long since found
Dut that you can't depend on
:hem, and they return home
r< at outs" with all intelli
gence from such a source.
Stich are some of the re
sults of life's vicissitudes for
ivhich the newspaper is re
:aused the change of the date
md for the want of some one
;lse to censure, the newspaper
s the victim.
A glow of pleasure and
tope is given the public in
eading the announcement
hat a dear one in the home,
ind in the community is bet
er, after a long and critical
llness. But strange, as they
ead, there comes the sad
ound of slow moving wheels,
nd the mournful funeral tiain
noves sadly along with the
ast earthly remains of the be
oved friend. This is the dis
?ensation of a mysterions yet
indly Providence putting at
laught the plans and desires
>f mortals. Thus Providence
las set a bound to the confi
lence of man, and has said :

If the lawyer or merchant
