WEDNESDAY, MAR. 19, 1902.
Judging by the falling off|
of tlie privilege tax income,
commercial fertilizers are
not being purchased as exten
sively this year as last Up
to March ist last year the
privilege tax income was $57
697, while the fund for the
same period this year is only j
$40,630, a falling of $17,000.
The total income last year
was $84,ooo,and it is estimat
ed, by those in a position to
form a correct opinion, that
the aggregate will not exceed
$70,000 this year. Evidently,
the farmers of some sections
of the state will not fertilize
their crops this year so heav
ily as last. The farmers of
this vicinity are hauling about
as much as during former
The state campaign will
very probably wax warm be- j
fore the primary. The great
number of candidates, repre
senting every section of the
state, in connection with a
change of past conditions and
influences, caused by redis
tricting the state, make it]
extremely difficult, in fact,
impossible, to even vaguely
forecast the result. Interest
will be centered around the
gubernatorial, senatorial and
congressional races on ac-|
count of the unprecedented
number of prominent men
who desire to serve the dear
The men asking for the
suffrage of the people in this
campaign must do so on their
own merits, not on thedemer
its of their opponents. Pup
lic sentiment in South Caroli
na will not longer tolerate the
demegogic methods of secur
ing votes by arraying class
against class and "fomenting |
strife and discontent. Let it I
be a campaign that will be
elevating instead of degrading.
Wireless telegraphy is no
longer an experiment but a
pronounced success?? The
Italian inventor, Marconi, who
discovered and developed the
system, has received a mes
sage a distance of 1550 miles,
while on board a vessel in
mid-ocean. That he actually
received the message as sent
is attested by the Captain and
chief officer of the vessel on
which the receiving instru
ment was located.
The installation of the sub
marine cable marked a new
era in electrical development.
Soon its abandonment will
mark the beginnig of Uill
greater achievements in the
application of this subtle
force or energy. The aerial
or, wireless system is certain
to supplant the presen*- means
of interocean communication,
being operated s o much
cheaper the cable companies
can not compete with it.
Marconi says, "the distance
a wireless message can be
sent is limited only by the
power of the sending ma
chine." The most wonder
ful feature of the system is
the tuning of the transmitter
with the receiving instrument
so that no other receiver can
intercept or record the mes
sage. Aerial communication
will be of a great value in
giving and receiving orders to
and from vessels in time of
We wonder at being able
to converse itor hundreds of
mrles over a wire,even recog
nizing an individual's voice;
still greater is the wonder of
communicating without ap
parently having any means or
medium of communication.
Boundless are the possibilities
ol the human mind in utilizing
the material things of earth
and immaterial, ?is for that
matter^for electricity is not
materi^ having neither
lei)gti?^re?dth nor thickness.
"Weare living, we are Jwelling,
In-si.grand and awful time,
