The negro convicts of Mississippi
number 028, as against 107 whites.
This ought to vive a very fair idea of
the sort of race problem we have in
the South, but thc chances are thc
average northern man will refuse to

auothcr piece of discrimination.
Xever send a dollar away from home,
when thc article that the dollar will
purchase can bc obtained at home.
Money is our financial blood. Its
circulation keeps thc business body
alive. Bleed that body by sending
the money away from home and busi
ness soon will put on a look of legarthy
and inactivity. Always trade at home.

Assistant Attorney General Gunter
has written an opinion that trustees of.
common schools have no legal right to
.thargo any fees or incidentals, and
?jays that any charges in free schools
are illegal. This docs not apply to
graded schools, as graded schools are
especially exempt from the general
school law and trustees have stated
Thc annual report of thc State
Treasurer of Georgia speaks volumes
for thc prosperity of that State and of
the South in general, for Georgia has
been prosperous only in proportion to
the other States. Theuty-four new
banks have been established in the
last year with a collective capital of
$570,800. .'.Thc total number of banks
is 170, and their books for the last
year show an incrcaso of $021,312.31
in surplus and net profits, and an in
crease of $5,303,045.81 in loans and
discounts. Tho number, cf,deposits
has. largely iuoreased^-jp?rtic?larly

As a rule, it. is desirable to build up
and promote our foreign export trade
in every possible way, but Mining and
Metallurgy, a trade paper, very sensi
bly observes that thc export of Ameri
can ?oa? ia thc last thing in thc way
of a foreign trado to be encouraged or
boomed. The supply is not unlimi
ted, and until now sources of energy
arc discovered, it is vital to the in
dustrial welfare pf the nation. To
stimulate its exhaustion for export
purposes would be short-sighted policy
indeed, lt is not so many years ago
that wood cut from thc forests fur

exhaustless fuel, especially in thc
rural districts. Already hints have
come from thu coal regions that the

The Atlanta ?ousttftitian says that
not only is thc cotton crop short but
the stock in spinners, bands is about
exhausted. In England thc spinners
have only a two weeks' supply, and
thc ijuautity at sea is much smaller
than last year. Thc spinners now see
the folly of not having stocked up
earlier, but the benefit is likely to
accrue to the planter whose judgment
led him to anticipate this contingen
cy. The spinners of the South have
thc advantage of being at the source
of supply, and can get their hands on
stray cotton in the warehouses or iu
barns on thc farm much easier than
those at a distance. Farmers may
now feel assured that cotton cannot
go materially down, while thc pros
pects are decidedly upward.
Thc Jefferson club, of St. Louis,
has just erected at Monticello, Ya., a
handsome monument t o the memory
of Thomas Jefferson, the greatest
statesman this country or any other
country ever gave to the world. The
shaft contains suitable inscriptions,
which commemorate many of the great
achievements of the groat Vir
ginian, and they call to mind thc
inscription which Jefferson himself
wrote for his o^n tomb which wan as
follows: "Herc was buried Thomas
Jefferson, author of thc Declaration of
Independence, of the statute of Vir
ginia for religious freedom and father
of thc University of Virginia."
Those three achievements he desired
to be remembered as the greatest of
his long and .useful lifo, and they
cover a wide fieH, indeed. Govern
ment, religion, education-three de
partments of endeavor to whkh bc
made, the greatest of contributions;

President Roosevelt had Hooker T.
Washington, one of thc most noted
negro? in thu South, as his guest at
dinner in tho Whit?: House a few
days ago, and this one act will tend
to chill the favor with which the
President is regarded in thc South.
There is no denying thc fact that the
President has thc right to entertain
whom he pleases in any manner he
desires, but when he attempts to
recognize social equality among thc
races bc ma> expect the denunciation
of every intelligent person of tbe
rVoglo-Sason race. The Picaiduul
has not done himself or the negro
race any good by this act, thc bad
effect of which will reach beyond him.

A meeting ol' thc Executive Com
mittee of the State Press Association
was bold in (marleston last Thurs
day night to lix a date for the enter
tainment and reception by the Ex
position Directors of the journalists
and their families of the State. Thurs
day, the Pith of December, was set
apart for the occasion, and all the
newspaper people of the State are in
vited. A very interesting program
will bo arranged, and we will be the
special guests that day of the Exposi
tion Company. This committee meet
ing called us to Charleston, and while
there we had the pleasure of visiting
the Exposition grounds. To say that
we were agreeably surprised as to thc
extent of thc Fxpostion but feebly
expresses it. It is going tobe a great
show, and will excel any Exposition
ever held in the South. It is simply
wonderful what the Company has
dono with thc limited amount of capi
tal to back it. Every South Carolin
ian who visits the Exposition will bc
surprised at its magnitude and will be
proud of it. Several of thc main
building have been completed, and
the work on thc other buildings is
progressing rapidly. Thc Exposition
will open on time, and the general out
look for its success could not be
brighter. There is no doubt that it
will be of great benefit not only to
Charleston but to the entire State.
Our only regret is that Anderson will
not bc represented there by a County
