Edgefield, S. C.
" -WEDNESDAY, JAN. 6,1904.
While some counties had
several homicides during the
holiday season when Bacc
hanalian revelry was the order
of the day in many sections,
. it. should be a source of grati
fication to our people that no
?hum?n life has been taken
within the., borders of old
According to an official
statement from the director of
the mint the total product of
. gold and silver in the United
"States "for the calender ye?
1903 was $74>435>34? and
South Carolina produced
$102,57^ of gold and $145 of
? It is stated that the pope,
the. highest potentate of the
. Catholic church, tis deeply in
. t?rested in the mission work
'among tli*e southern negroes
arid" that mofe pri?sts will be
assigned.to this field. Should
those who are commissioned
-.to .d?^tbis. special work allow
discouragements to discour

-We have it from Hon. L
.J..-Willims' own lips that he
is a candidate for congress
from this district. As Hon
J. Wm. Thurmond will nol
..enter the.race, Mr. Williami
will receive almost a solid vote
in Edgefield county, -md the
r?cord wni?h he has made
since entering politics, espe
cially in his management oi
the dispensary, will make hirr
?ja? strong, candidate in the
.other counties of the district,

"Way as did many good Chris
tian women of Charleston
..who. prepared a dinner foi
. 700 poor children of the city,
which was" served to them in
the Masonic templ?. Making
vothers glad is the way to cele
brate the coming of Him whe
brought glad tidings.
vMuch has been . said and
.--written recently looking to a
change in the existing insur
ance laws, which, it is claim
ed, will enable the companies
doing business in this state tc
make a. lower rate. While
' the rates charged for fire in
surance in South Carolina are
excessively high, yet, accord
ing to an official statement
from Comptroller General
Jones, they are lower thar
those of any other southern
state, averaging only $i.2c
per hundred. The average oJ
all classes of risks ma}' be low,
but as a matter of fact the rate
is excessively high on some
classes of risks ; for instance,
$3.40 per hundred on mer
chandise in Edgefield and
^$2.35' on: brick buildings,
xleaven pity those who carry
insurance in other states if the
i rates charged in South Caro
lina are considered low.
Those who have read the
address of Mayor R.' G. Rhett,
of Charleston, at the banquet
given by the Columbia cham
ber of commerce on Wednes
day last, will in future be less
inclined to censure and criti
cise>Charleston for the non
enforcement of the dispensa
ry law. He "explained some
of the conditions which make
it much more difficult to t.i
force the law in Charleston
than any of *he interior towns
and cities. Mr. Rhett stated
as a positive fact that consta:
bles oftentimes received tri
bute from the tigers, some of
these officers only arresting
those illicit dealers who would
not pay the price of an in
dulgence . What prostitution
on the part of these officers ot
the state ! Think of how dif
ficult it would be to enforce
the law here in Edgefield
should tigers ply their trade
in league with constables who
came ostensibly to prosecute
he offenders. Wherever con_
stables become, ir. a sense
