STATE BANKS OF ISSUE.
On our first pago will be found an ad
mirable speech by Senator Mci,am in
dolivorod in the United States Senate
last wook. It is tho clearest and most
forciblo presentation of practical views
on tho vexed currency question wo have
had tho pleasure of rending for some
timo. It will well repay a careful read
ing by thoso in search of information on
tho money question. Ile advocates an
elastic medium of exchange, and shows
conclusively how tho prosont national
banking system militates against tho
business interests of tho South ami
Weat, tho great producing sections of
tho nation. The repeal of thc ten per
cont tax on State banks of issue would
onablo theso sections to establish astable
ourroncy, mainly their own, based on
their own money values, and thus be in
a measure independent of the money
sharks on Wall Street.

( '01.UM MIA, S. C., Jnnuary 22.-Kditors
Connor: Thoro was not imioh accom
plished in thu progress of legislation
(luring the past wook.
On Monday, as usual, (hore was but n
thin House, many of tho inomhors hav
ing gone to theil homos on Saturday to
spend tho Sabbath with their families,
and did not get into thoir scabs in tinio
for tho morning hour; and as a matter
of courtesy to tho members directly
interested in them, many of tho I ills on
our calendar woro passed over.
On Thursday at 12 o'clock tho memo
rial services ol I'OBpcot on tho death of
tho lato Governor W. H. Kllorbo wore
observed in tho hall of tho House of Rep
resentatives, at which tho Governor and
other State olllcors, thc Justices of tho
Supreme Court, tho members of tho (lou
erai Assembly, a number of ladies and
other interested spectators wore present,
and many lino tributos WOro paid to tho
lifo, labors and character of tho deceased
Governor by members of both I ho Sou a to
and House of Representatives.
Friday, the 10th, Gen. bee's birthday,
being a legal holiday, both branchos of
tho General Assembly adjourned ovor
until Monday, and there was no session
of either House on Satuiday, and most
of the members took advantage of tho
lull of legislative m neb i nor y to visit their
homes and families. For myself, tho dis
tance and attendant ox penses woro toe
great, so we had to forego, and will have
tu forego, wo presume, until the end of
the session, which, itt thc present rate of
progress, may be some tinto within thc
next sixty or ninety days, but I presume
we will gol regularly down to business
dining this week, and more rapid pro
gross will be made, and it is possible,
and I think probable, that the lina
adjournment will he reached within fort)
days from Ihedateof thecoinmencenienl
of the session.
On friday thc Daughters of tho Con

ipienl address, paying a beautiful tributi
lo tlu? heroism of our gallant dead am
to thc titi vol ion of our women. Tin
whole ceremony was a sad bul lifting om
lo I he occasion.
There has been ipiito an avalanche o
new bills pouring into the legislativ?
mill during the present session. Tin
most fruitful sources of these bills seen
to be the new county government act am
the dispensary. There seem to be bu
few counties in tho State that are eu
seeking some change or amendment o
the county government law. I have intro
tl need a bill to amend thc law so far as i
rid?tes tot leonoe, to make tho two count
commissioners elective every t wo year
in the general elections, with tho sn pei
visor as now provided, requiring them t
give the same amount of bond, am
declaring the linties and lixing tho sal
aries of the same.
I havo also, at tho request of ou
County Hoard of Commissioners, intn
iluced a bill to authorize tho coinmissioi
ors of 1 leoiiee county, S. C., to unite wit
the authorities of llabeisham count)
Georgia, in rebuilding thc Frat her bridg
across Tugaloo river. The request c
the hoard is backed hy strong petition
of the citizens desiring it.
There is also a bill pending to a nt hoi
?zo the supervisors and commissioners i
i ?conee and l'icl'cns counties lo buy c
accept as a gift Hie Uaveiiel toll bridg
across .'seneca river and make and koo
it up as a t ree bridge.
I have also introduced a bill to anion
the title and extend the provisions of a
act to amend the (diallers of cities an
towns in relut mn to tho sale of meats, s
[as to include vegetables, sweet and Iris
potatoes and fruits of every kind.

the fate of any of these hills may be. bi

their monty for what they please. I
also has a serious objection as to wit

lt seems that he thinks^tho colored pc

Ho says your correspondent at Retro
would have a higher or special li
placed on the old citizens to keep i
tho public roads and bridges just for ll
pleasure of ibis ungrateful generation
vipers. Mr. Cook has made no distill

pig-headed people. We suppose
means them all to be an ungrateful gen
ration of vipers.
Ho condemns thc dispensary law ai
our law regulating taxes. He says: "G
knows tho taxes on property are t
high now." (?ml says we should p

WKSTMINSTKH, S. C., January 20.
Among tho many manufacturing intor
prisos thal have sprung up in tho groat
South during tho ninotoonlh century, tho
Southorn .Shuttle and bobbin Factory,
so beautifully situated in our midst, is
one of great importance and demands
the attention of the busy world. Really,
tho closing period of tho nineteenth cen
tury linds this tho only enterprise of its
kind South of Philadelphia, and that
alono ought to make us fool proud of it.
Thou, too, it is a groat success, and we
havo every reason to expect greater suc
cess of it in the futuro, lt is bound to
rocoivo tho patronage of tho big cotton
mills of the South, and this is a timo
that cotton mill building is hy no means
at a standstill. Tho company often rc-"
coivo orders for shuttles and spools from
Northern mills, but it is impossible for
thom to lill tho orders, as the mills in the
Soul h keep thom so busy. To-day they
have orders enough to keep them at
work for the next sixty days.
Tho Southorn Shuttle and Hobbit!
Company began work in ISi)."> in a
wooden building 20x10 feet, with barely
a half dor.on operatives. Later on more
room was Hooded, and the building had
to bc enlarged. That, however, did not
furnish room enough. So new quarters
woio sought and to-day wo lind them
nicely established in a plant, costing
nearly $:)5,000, bleated about a half mile
Northwest of tho depot, of the Southern
Hallway, whciu only lon: leen months
ago a public road ran. There aro seventy

pay roll to-day. They work ten hours
From a $0,000 capital the books of

are availing themselves of the opportu
nity ol'getting stock in the company.
The timber buying is a big thing now
and thousands ol' dollars have been dis
I tributed among the rich ami the poor
for wood, which, for other purposes,
j would have been unsalable.
The. company have twelve limber
agents, located in South Carolina and
(ieorgia, and it is being shipped in hy
I car loads. Twenty-nine car loads have
been received this season. So great did
the shipment ol' timber become that a
switch was pul in al the old factory and
a spur track,-(H) feet long, was built lo
unload ears from. About a ear load is
bought from the wagons every day,
which comes from forests accessible to
In making shuttles persimmon and
dogwood are used. Spools are made of
poplar, birch, maple, sourwood, sweet
gnni and other woods, lt takes timber
from one and one-half to two years lo
become thoroughly seasoned lor shut ties.
The carpenters, bricklayers and other
laborers finished work at the new fac
tory a short time before ( 'bristmas.
The company gol their machinery in
the main budding and u<d started lo
work in September. As mindi more
machinery was added then. A new en
gine and boiler were pul in lo furnish
greater power, lt is a till horse boiler.
The. boiler room is twenty-eight feet
square and built of brick. The main
building in which the machinery is
placed is a thing . " beauly, lt is heated
from bottom lo lop by steam, al a cost
of over SL'oo. There is no darkness in
side during the day. as it contains US
windows. The size of the building is
l(SUx"?r> foot. In the center ol" L is th?
saw sheil. where ail I be woods are sawed ?
lo tho required length and si/.e. Some j
five Ol'six saws are seen running ata
high speed and from b"> lo '_'."> cords of
wooil ate sawed ?1.lily. More than a
do/en bands work herc and not an idle
person is to be seen. As soon as Hie
pieces ii. nded to be made into shuttles
are sawed the ends are dipped ill (allow
to prevent cracking. The blacksmith
shop adjoins thc saw shed. The rooms
of the ground Moor aie blushing and
packing rooms. The iron works and the
odie-. nve ;,!," "" ..hj. lower Moor. j
Two elevators, principally for carrying
freight, are seen in (his building. On
going upstairs tho visitor secs many liv

Tho sh tittle* room is ii()x:'.r> feet and has
several lathes in il. The spool room has
sixteen billies in it. In Ibis room an tip
io date nun hine shop is found, lt bas
two engine lathes and one large mill
lathe. An iron planer, weighing :',">nu
pounds, is also operated here.
The manufacture of shuttles is ver>
interesting. Weare informed thal they
have to go through about ll fly difieren I
operations bofoic they are completed.
After the timber becomes well seasoned
il is carried lo a .small saw where the
pieces ?ire cul lo an exact length, and
from thc saw they are carried to the
planer, which dresses (hem dow n to the
exact size, ami from (he planer they go
to the lathes Ilia) work mil the inside,
which is done with bits ami cutlers made
I'm that purpose. From those machines
they go lo w bal is called a burring ma
chine, when the inside ol' tho shuttle is
smoothed out with .small burrs, made
for the woik. This machine and several
others move al a s|.tl of over .*?,IHHJ
r?volu' ions per minute. Prom this they
are passed lo the heading lathe, where
the inside is squared lo receive Ibo end
ol''he bobbin. After coming out they
are ready for the lips lo bc pul on Hie

the ends aie I III ned lo Hie required

Mr. Anderson became idontillod with
the factory in August, I SHS, when the
capital stock was doubled. Ile was
made president and treasurer. At the
meeting of the stockholders, held a few
weeks ago, bo was elected to continuo to
serve in (bis capacity. Mr. Anderson is
one of the bcd known business men in
Westminster, and controls a larger busi
ness than any other man hero. Ho has
the welfare of his town at heart and is a
promoter of all that is good, lt is due
10 his energy ami public, spirit that the
shuttle factory has made such great pro
gress and the success achieved.
Miss bessie Norris, who holds a re
sponsible position with tho I'eden ev
Anderson Hanking Company, is the sec
retary. Therefore tho immense busi

bookkeeper, is deftly and accurately re
corded by an accomplished young lady.
Mr. li. (J. Spalding, who came from

MOB HANGS TWO MURDERERS.
Half Brothers arc Manged Sido hy Side in a
Kansas Jail Yard.
KOUT SCOTT, KANS.. January '?'.y.-Cleo.
Silboo and KU. Meeks, half brothers, who
were convicted of murder hore early last
week, were lynched hy a mob in tho
county jail yan! hero Saturday night.
At a late hour their bodies wore dang
ling from two trees in tho yard, tho au
thorities having boon so completely sur
prised that no ct?ort has hoon mado to
remove the ghastly evidence of the mob's
work. Tho two mon, who hailed from
Kansas City, had hoon convicted of
murder in tho Inst degree, their victim
being a young dorman named Leopold
Kdlinger, whoso murder occurred in Oc
tober last near hero. Tho murderers dis
posed of Kdlingor's pair of mules, a
horse and a wagon in batos county.
Amos Phillips, an accomplice of the two
brothers in tho cri ino, was convicted of
murder in the first degree. Tho evidence
showed thal the three moe belonged to
a gang of thieves who had boon regularly
disposing of their plunder in Hates
Th lynching was tho work of a mob
that began gathering in tho vicinity of
tho county jail soon after dark, but tho
purpose of the assembling crowds seems
not to have been suspected until tho jail
was attacked. A barbed wiro trocha
(hal had been previously built around
the jail was lorn down, tho heavy doors
leading to tho prison were battered in
and when the mob como howling out of
the jail with its intended victims, tho
interior ot the place looked as if it had
been wrecked with dynamite. (Jeorgo

the noose around his own neck and died

an outward calm until he was jerked
into the air.
before Ibis Sillico had shouted to tho
mob in d?liant tenes that he himself shot
Kdlinger and that Amos Philips struck
him on the head with au ax. Ile insisted
thal his brother Kd. did not participate
In the crime.
"Lc sure and get Philips," thc doomed
I mn shouted lo his torment ors, he
bade I hi m. w iib a curse, to string him
up. The vengeance manifested toward
Ibo accomplice Philips was probably due
to the fact that thc latter soon after his
arrest made a full confession of the
crime, though when he was pul on (rial
he repudiated Ibis earlier confession. Ld.
Meeks was equally fearless in the hands
of the mob. bul he did not manifest tho
spirit ol' bravado shown by his brother.
His last words were:
"Hang me, if yon will, but I did not
help kill Kdlinger. ? Jeorgo shot him ami
Phillips struck him with an ax, I did--."
The doomed man gol no farther in his
statement, for four or live men had him

his neck, throwing the loose end over a
