WEDNESDAY, AUG. 23. 1899.
A dispatch says that money is needed
in Honolulu. In one respect?t least
Honolulu is thoroughly Americanized.
The good people of Greenwood coun
ty axe right in using every effort to
arrest and convict the scoundrels who
recently perpetrated the outrages upon
a few negroes of that county. The
whole State of South Carolina has to
suffer on account of the acts of these
'.whitecappcrs," who should he made to
suffer for their conduct.
In tlae Democratic primary election
of last year the vote on the whiskey
question in Anderson County was as
follows: Prohibition, 1889; Dispensary,
1431; License, 536. If the Democratic
party would leave the question to be
settled in the primary election next
year, and agree to abide by the decis
ion of the people, the dispensary law
would be wiped out of existence. Let
the people pass judgment on the law,
and the result will forever settle the
question._
Statistician Wroth, of the Baltimore
chamber of commerce, says: "The pros
pects of thc growing crop of corn leaves
scarcely, anything to be desired. The
acreage is nearly the largest eyer grown
by this country, aggregating 81,556,000
acres. The largest previous area was
^ in 1895, when the acreage was given at
82,000,000 acres and the production as
2,151,000,000 bushels. The largest crop
ever grown here was in 1896, and was
officially stated as 2,283,000,000 bushels.
A crop of2,200,000,000bushel8 is indic?t
ed by the report of the agricultural de
partment."

The August issue of the Southern
^ Field, edited by Mr. M. V. Richards,
land and industrial agent of the South
. ern railway, Washington, D. C., con
tains a variety of valuable information
about the cities, towns and farming
neighborhoods in the territory of the
Southern railway, with suggestions for
men seeking homes or locations for
industries. The Southern Railway is a
great and progressive system, and is
leaving nothing undone that will tend
to the development of the agricultural
and manufacturing interests of every
section of the South where its system
touches.
The Southern Exposition in the city
. of New York, which will be held from
the 3l8t of October to the 25th of No
vember, is an important enterprise for
the benefit of the South, which will ad
vertise our matchless resources in nat
ural and productive wealth. The ex
hibit from ?he South will show the
wonderful progress made during the
past quarter of a century in agriculture,
in mining, in manufactures and kindred
industries and in educational science.
South Carolinais represented on the
advisory "board of the Exposition by
Gov. M. B. Mcsweeney, Mayor J. Adger
Smyth, of Charleston, Congressman A.
v C. Latimer, of this County and Mr.
^Jester G. Furman, of Greenville.
Henry M. Neill, the New Orleans Cot?
ton expert, has announced his estimate
of this year's cotton crop at 12,000,000
bales, the largest ever made. His esti
mates an to the crops of the past few
years have been so near correct that the
great cotton markets' of the world be
lieve him, and the price is bound to go
down. The Government crop report
for August issued on the 10th inst.,
puts the condition of cotton at 84 points
out of a possible 100. This is the lowest
August average for ten years past.
South Carolina is foot in the cotton
class with a per centage of 78. We
hope Mr. Neill is mistaken in his esti
mate and will soon change his figures.
Our only remedy is for the farmers to
hold their cotton off the market for
awhile. ^_
The South Carolina farmers are get
. ting profit and praise by their sensible
diversification of crops. The New Or
leans Daily States says of them that
they are "evidencing the possession of
more good, hard sense than those of
some other States we could uame.
. They are turning their backs upon cot
ton and the crop of tobacco this year
is estimated at 20,000,000, worth from 4
to 26 cents a pound. Moreover, the
cultivation of the wheat has been so
successful that the acreage will likely
be doubled next year." We sincerely
hope that some of the farmers of An
derson County will experiment next
season with a crop of tobacco. We are
told that ?onie of our land is adapted
to the growth of tobacco, and that Une
specimens have been grown herc.
An exchange says: "Talk about your I
moral waves, but an epidemic ol' com- J
mon honesty between man and man is
what the country most needs. This
way of scowling like a thunder-storm
at the more open sins, while man's bus
iness obligations to his fellow man are
disregarded is not even philosophy."
There is not in all the books a more
solid chunk of wisdom or decency than
is contained iu this paragraph. A man
who will not pay his obligations gets
np in meetings and subscribes some
large amount to the preacher, to mis
sions, to the poor, to the propagation
of religion, when the best thing he
could do would be to get some religion
for himself. True Christianity will not
allow any man to be generous before
he is just. No human creature can re
commend himself to Heaven by large
alms and a disregard for his own obli
gations. A man who can afford to give
in church has already settled hi? ac
counts or is ready and willing to do it
without any delay. Are ur right .'1
Does the Loni allow a mau to sacrifice
his neighbor in subscribing to the
heathen? There are a lot of old whited
sepulchers up on the front seats going
to the devil as fast as they can, be
cause, while they are loud-mouthed in
church, they are dishonest. They may
pray loud and often, but in the last
day they will learn that He never knew
them.
In a circular letter to the Mayors and
Intendants of cities and towns in the
State, Gov. Mcsweeney calls upon
them for information relative to the
enforcement of the liquor law. He
calls their attention to the necessity of
seeingthe dispensary law rigidly en
forced, and wants to know if he can
depend upon these officers to assist him
in enforcing the law, and that the vio
lators of the same are arrested by the
police and brought before the proper
tribun als for trial. The G o vernor asks
the aid and views of these offi cers.
What he wants to know is will city
and town councils give the aid neces
sary. As far as Anderson is concerned,
the Governor may rest assured that he
will have the hearty aid and co-opera
tion of our city authorities. The dis
pensary law has always been enforced
here, and to-day there is not even a
suspicion of a "blind tiger" in this city.
Can a Man Hold Two Offices I
Mn. EDITOR : D. H. Russell, editor of
the Peoples Advocate, as the writer
has been informed and believes, now
holds two offices-that of Magistrate
and that of Census Supervisor for thc
Third Congressional District, (a) Can
any one in this State legally hold two
offices at one and the same time?
(ft) What will be the result of the cases
that may be tried before D. H. Russell
and sent up to Court, since he qualified
as census Supervisor ? CITIZEN'.
[Sec. 3 of Art. II of the Constitution
says : "Every qualified elector shall be
eligible to any office to be voted for.
unless disqualified by age, as prescribed
in this Constitution. But no jwrson
shall hold two offices of honor or profit
at i//.c same time ; provided, that any
person holding another office may at
thc same time be an officer in the mili
tia on a Notary Public." 11 seem s to us
that this is very plain. The position
of Magistrate is one office and that of
Census Supervisor another, and com-.
missions arc issued in both positions.
We are no lawyer, and do not know
w hat would be the legal efi'cct of any
case sent up by Russell. The question
could be answered by the Attorney
General, and we suggest that "Citizen"
refer it to him. We remember a year
ago when Mr. J. M. Smith, who was a
member of the County Board of Con
trol, was elected an Alderman of this
city, the question was raised, and he
was told that he would have to give
up one of the positions. Under the
Constitution of 18GS, under a similar
provision contained in the present Con
stitution, ifc was decided that when one
holding an office accepts another in
compatible therewith, he thereby va
cates the first.-St*ate vs. Butts, 9 S. C.,
150'. Also, his salary for the first office
will cease from the time he accepts the
second.-9 S. C.; 259.-EDITOR.]

Sheriff Johnston says when he went
over to South Carolina to Sinai camp
meeting he saw a curious sight-th?'
campmceting at high pressure with a
revolving steam flying jinny on the
grounds at the same time. From the
crowded appearance of the latter it
looked as it quite a large number of the
brethren were bound for heaven by the
flying-jinny route.
At Mt. Sinai.
MK. EDITOR: I see from thc corres
pondent of Holland's Store that some
thing is said about the "flying-jinny"
at Sinai Campmceting. Hehas forgot
ten that all things are right at a negro
camp, and more, especially if one of
Anderson County's Representatives is
at it and conducting a beer stand, sell
ing cigars and other things that would
tempt a negro to part with his money.
Now, Mr. Editor, "Burke" must have
voled for this Representative, or he
would not so conspicuously omitted to
have mentioned him. We'.wouldlike
to know if "Burke" was present and
saw this ungodly sight, (d' the "flying
jinny,*' and what became of him that he
did not see our Represcntative selling
on the Sabbath, and byr his example
saying to our young boys, "It is ali
right. 1 am your Representative and
whatever ? do you have no right to
question!" FAU.UKI:.
TALK >0. 7.
I CANT SEE AS
WELL AS i SHOULD,
IK a complaint you hear, not only from
older people, but from young an well.
Age is no criterion for the wearing of
glasse*. Many are born with greater
defects than come with age. Yoong peo
ple inherit and cultivate defect? by strain
and abuse. Young, old or middle aged,
if you are not getting the service from
your eyes that you think you should,
don't delay if they bother you in any
way, have them examined and properly
corrected at once. The longer they are
deprived of the aid they need, the weaker
they become. I know what I am talking
about. That friend (?; who tells you to
put off wearing glasses just as long KS
possible doesn't. Lost sight is seldom
regained, but faulty vision can be cor
rected by the proper gln<-es. The part of
wisdom will be to take no risk, but have
your eye1* examined and tentai HO you
may be sure about them.
Respectfully,
A. C. STRICKLAND.

Did you ever ?te a grain of corn thrown
to a dozen chickens and see the rough
and tumble scramble that took place?
and then did you notice one just a little
more nimble than the rset awallowed
that grain of corn ? In the picture be
fore you that nimble fellow is the indom
itable C. S. Minor.
Did you ever see a lively-looking pig
with an ear of corn held tightly between
the teeth, plunging rapidly down the
lane, and all the common herd tumbling
alter, ?quealing for that ear of corn? In
the picture before you C. S. Minor is that
leading pig.
Notice he doesn't stop to eat nor look
back at competition, but pushes right on.
Did you ever witness a horse race tmd
see the one well-rounded, muscular ani
mal, with a little more spirit than his
fellows, crosses the tape full ten paceB
in the lead, while the others cross in a
flock, possibly neck for neck, and should
er for shoulder. In the picture before
you C. S, Minor is that leading horse,
and the Ten Cent 8tore is the winner.
With merchants the 'ilat day of Au

The last spurt is on, and C. S. Minor and

first to sniff the goal. For the next few

We sell Goods Cheap, but we do not sell Cheap
Goods.
August must be kept bu?-y irrespective of profit. Reduced prices at
which we now sell apply not only to Goods of Fashion but to styles as well.
"Staples" are Goods used the year round, not subject to change of style, and
therefore seldom offered at a sacrifice. Our prices rule lower than present
wholesale rates. Nevertheless, for the balance of this month as an extra
inducement we will sell even lower, feeling that the money-saving c p^ortu
nity will be so quickly recognized that our sales will be doubled.
