WEDNESDAY, JULY 19,1905.
Happy is the farmer who, dur
ing the early part of last week,
converted his cotton warehouse
receipt into a certificate of de
posit from the bank. Cotton de-'
dined more than a cent per pound
before the week closed.
.: The legislature that enacted the
dispensary law made one egregious
error. It made provision for a
constabulary force to execute the

establish a "secret service" to pre

man who defeats Hon. Martin F.
Ansell will be the next governor
of South Carolina.
In writing of speculation, bucket
shops and exchanges the News

a synonym for conservatism, says :
'.There is something radically
wrong with the system when the

It seems that the time is fast
approaching when the race pro
blem will no longer be referred to
as a southern problem, but as a
national one. Race riots are al
most as frequent now-a-days in
New York city as they are in |
"Dixie." One marked difference,
however, is that "way down south"
it does not requi.e 250 policemen
to quell them. By the way, it
would be interesting in this con

We clip the following from a
very ardent dispensary advocate,
the Florence Times, which with
all of the dispensary's faults loves
"We are told that 80 proof
liquor is good whiskey with 20
per cent of water put in it. We
have our doubts unless it is a
mighty poisonous water that is
used. "Fuss x" liquor will kill a
billy goat and second x is mighty
little better if any. There is more
poison going out over the dispen
sary counter than in all the drug
stores iu the state. Thai sort of
businets must be stopped and
stopped with a bump. Let a mau
put.his own water in his liquor
and let the dispensary sell nothing
but the unadulterated product of

Both Fratricide And Suicide.
The town of Darlington ha?
suffered two very severe blows
Following closely upon the colos
sal failure of the large oil company
and b.iuk, was the unspeakab*}
horrible and shocking suicide o
Mr. R. Keith Dargau, the presiden
of these corporations. Ttn mos
revolting feature of the tragedy
however, was the par,t that i
brother of the unfortunate mai
played, iu deliberately purchasing
the deadly poison and standing
supinely by aR lt was swallowed
This death was as much a case o:
fratricide as suicide and the living
brother should be indicted foi
jiurder. The Greenville Newt
speaks of it as follows:
"The human mindflfts to com
prehend the inner f?ffives of a
mau who would quieBgpurcbase
a deadly poison for bH^rother in
financial distress ancTwho would
sit down, in a cold blooded way
and wait for him to drink it and
die. Whatever else may be said
of that Dargan suicide, it is a
plain case for the solicitor and the
grand jury, for enough evidence
has been adduced to show and
prove that Pegram Dargau was au
accessory before the fact. There
have been times and occasions
when two persons agreed to die
together, but we doubt if the re
cords will reveal another case like
that in Darlington. And if sui
cide is cowardly, what must be
said of the act of the brother ?"
