Thc several State and city elections
throughout the country on Tuesday
5th inst., passed off without unusual
excitement, and thc results so far as
the returns show are about as expect
ed, except in the city of Now York,
where Low and his co-republican
fusionists administered a knock ont
blow to Tammany. In most ol' the
Stator a light vote was polled.
In the United States Circuit Court
in Charleston a few days ago Ju'lge
Simouton handed down a decision rc
fusing to set aside thc non-suit in thc
famous Moore-l'arker cotton future
case. This is the case in which it
was recently determined that brokers
cannot collect for advances on margin

The (.Jeorgia House of Repr?sen
t?es has passed a Dispensary Rill by
a vote of 95 to 45. Rut unlike the
South Carolina lawmakers who made
the Dispensary law, the Georgia
Representatives recognize thc rights
of tho people and, in the bill, pro
vision is made for each County to
holdan election to determine whether
or not prohibition, a dispensary or
saloon shall be established.
According to the final census re
port there are 39,059,242 males in the
population of the United States and
117,244,145 females, showing an excess
of 1,815,097 males. This disparity is
doubtless due to the greater number
of male than female immigrants, which
disturbs the natural balance of tho
birth rate. The fact that in America
there are not girls enough to go
'round is disquieting.

Capt. J. A. Mooney died suddenly
at his home in Greenville last Satur
day evening of heart failure, aod the
announcement caused much corrow
among his friends in Anderson. He
was about 43 years of age, and leaves
a wife and four children. Capt.
Mooney was regarded as one of the
leading criminal lawyers in tho State,
and his praotioe brought him to An
derson at nearly every term of our
Court. He was a most genial, clover
hearted gentleman, and made a friend
of every acquaintance.
Almost every day we see evidences
of the widening sphere of woman':' in
dustrial and professional activity.
Women by the thousand are engaged
now in many occupations from whioh
they were excluded only a few years
ago. Their success and usefulness in
almost every line they have attempted
is fast beating down the remnants of
feudal prejudice against the employ
ment of women, is enlarging the gen
eral estimate of woman's capabilities
and helping on the causo of equal
compensation for women who do an
much work and as good work as men
and yet receive less for it.
The report of tho treasurer of tho
United States shows that tho net or
dinary revenues for tho fiscal year
ended June 30 were $587,(385.337. an
increase of $20,444,485 over the pre
vious fiscal year, and the receipts for
that year were the highest up to date.
There was an increase in every source
of income, hut it was largest in inter
nal revenue. The total expenditures
for tho last fiscal year were $590,965,
352, an amount which has been ex
ceeded only four times, in 1803, 18G4
und 18G5 and in 1S99 on account of
expenses inourred in thc war with
Spain and that in thc Philippines.
The surplus, outside of the $150,000,
000 gold reserve, amounted on June
30 to $77,717,984. Thc surplus is now
averaging $46,000,000 and wili proba
bly be carried to $150,000,000 by tho
end of the present fiscal year. This
immense and increasing surplus is as
much an evidence of unnecessary and
therefore unjust taxation as it is of
the country's prosperity. It is a pow
erful argument for a reduction of
