Have an idea that the same grade of Clothing [is about
the same price at every Clothing Store. Now, that would be
true if all conducted their business alike.
Take the Stores that do a credit business and you'll find
the prices about the same.
If we sold on credit we would have to sell our. Clothing
at about the same prices credit Stores do. They sell at as
small a profit as they can, but what they lose in doing a
credit business they have to make up somehow. So it's more
profit they want.
We do a Spot Cash Business, and hence have no losses'
Our prices for the same Goods can't be matched at Credit
We don't handle inferior Clothing, however.
Our Clothes are the good kind, and our profits are smaller
than Credit Stores, because we have no losses by bad debts
to make up.
It will pay you to get acquainted with this Store and the.
way we do business.

FROM THE NATION'S CAPITAL.
From Our Own Correspondent.
WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 18,1001.
Sugar will piny a tremendous part in
tho d?lib?rations of Congress at tho
coming session. The problem is really
a very complicated ouo. First", thero
uro our own growers to be considered.
Urged on by tho Agricultural Depart
mont, fanners ip ninny sections huvo
devoted their attention to raisiug sugar
beets and to buildiug factories to ex
tract the saccharine matter from them;
any attempt to reduce tho duty on
sugar will undoubtedly meet with
vigorous opposition from these. Next
is tho sugar.trust, which is willing to
lune raw sugar freo but wants a tax
on the relined product so ns to enable
it to make nh abnormal profit; it is now
engaged in a war with the beet sugar
men to make them sell their unrefined
sugar at a price lixed by itself. Third,
are the interests of the Hawaiians.
Fourth, is Cuba, to which free entry of
her sugar into the United States is a
vital condition to prosperity. Thero
are really so many wheels within
wheels in tile sugar contlict that a keen
observer will possibly bo nonplussed
for awhile to get the facts-, and tbore
is grave danger of a scandal similar to
that of soxie years ago, when several
Senators were convicted morally of
tfuilt in speculating in sugar stocks
and strongly suspected of yet more
Representativo Babcock, of Wiscon
sin, is in towu. pluckily upholding the
tariff measure ho stole from tho Demo
crats last, session, and has since been
attempting to force on his own party
with uo appreciable results. "My idea
os to tari if revision is simple," ho said.
"It is this: Where by changed condi
tions turill'duties have become exorbi
tant, far beyond the needs of protec
tion, I would put them where they
would amply protect labor, but not to
a point that would create u monopoly
of trade and raise prices to consumers.
In other words, if an article cost ?l to
bo produced abroad aud $1.40 to be
produced-in this country, 1 would
favor a CO per cent duty, to-protect
ourselves; but not 200 per cont, which
would simply afford a margin for in
creasing tho price to our own consum
ers. Thero is no departure from Re
publican protective turill'principles in
that. I reassert that I am as ardent an
advocate of tho Republican doctrine of
protection to American industries as
thero is iu this country. The question
this Congress will be called upon tb
answer is, Will it permit a tariff duty
to remain in force, to enable a trust to
pay dividends on watered stockl"
This is the question that tho Democrats
have been asking, for lo these many
years, only to bo overborne by tho
mouey that tho protected trusts havo
been able to muster to their defense.
Mr. Babcock means well, nud if ho and
his bair dozen supporters 'would join
hands with the Democrats they might
force action. No one doubts, however,
tbat when it combs toa show down, they
will yield to their caucus rule and voto
to maintain thc tariff'unchanged.
Tho accession of Senator Cu Ho m to
the head of tho Foreign Relations
Committee- of the Senate brings Steve
Elkins, ot West Virginia, to tho head
of Interstate Commerce nnd renders
abortive all efforts to strengthen the
interstate commorce law or to repair
tho holes punched in it by unfriendly
court decisions. What is needed, is an
amendment to tho law which will give
the commission power to say, after an
investigation, that a rate is too high
and to lix a lower rate, which tho rail
roads must put into effect and continue
operativo until tho courts have an op
portunity to pass on the question. Un
der the present circumstances it is im
possible to regulate these matters. If
the commission decides a rate is exor
bitant the road may reduce the rato
halt'a cent. If the commission is not
satisfied with this small cut, it must
take the matter into court. If the
commission is sustained, ?bo railroad
then makes another small reduction.
In the course of a lifetime tho rate by
this meaus would bo reduced to a rea
sonable point. If the amendment sug
gested should be adopted, a prescribed
rate would become effective ot once.
Discriminations in rates are ilngrant
and of common occurrence, but it is
difficult to prosecute tho railroads on
account of the provision in. the Consti
tution which gives a person immunity
from iucriminating himself. If Sena
tor Cu Ho m had remained nt the head
of the Committee, the reform elements
would have predominated; but when
he yields to Elkins, who is a railroad
man, the railroad interest gets into tho

ready to be signed; it will go down in
history ns tho work of Secretary Hay,
although, as a matter of fact, it is the
work of the Senate, and largely of tho
Democratic members of that body, who
will not even get a "look-in" nt tho
fame of the work. The stealing of the
glory of the battle of Santiago by the
Sampsonites is nothing compared to
the looting of the credit for the canal
treaty by Mr. Hay. The treaty as
drawn to-day is substantially as dic
tated by the Senate at the last session
and is diametrically opposed to the

Tho Schley court is hurrying ita

instead of u?.'\ Tho court declines; to
discuss tho matter, hut excellent pro

would prefer thnt the court's report

that his record will speak for itsolf,
and they will not oppose a Congres

THE GOOD ROADS SPECIAL.
Greenville Iuvltes tho People of the
State to the Good Hoads Convention
In December-The Great Seed of the
On behalf of the citizens of Green
ville an invitation is extended to the
peoplo of South Carolina to visit our
city during the week beginning Mon
day^ Dec. 10th, when the "Good Hoads
i Special" of the Southern Kail woy will
j bo hero for tho purpose of building .
sample roads and holding meetings
with tho view ot tcacliiug tho people
? in practical road building. This is the
only point in the Piedmont section
where the train will stop to do any !
work, nud everyone who can do so
ought to talco tho opportunity of learn
ing for himself what can be done in
the making of roads with necessary
machinery handled by men who are
experts in tho business.
So much has been said and written
in regard to this subject of good roads
that the people of tho South aro prac
tically iu thorough accord with the
idea that good roads aro an acquisition
nud bonetit to any community* Every
ono is convinced that tho lack of good
roads is ono of the greatest drawbacks
to the growth and prosperity of the
South, and to supply this lack is oao
of the most serious problems beforo us
to-day. A net-worlc of main roads
built nuder scientific direction with
durable and permanent material will
alono meet tho urgent demand of our
rural districts and market towns. Tho
lines of competition aro being drawn
moro closely every year and tho mar
gin of profits are growing more slender
in consequence, so that it is imperative
to employ every element looking to
low-priced production nod. cheap dio
I tribntiou of rho crops that aro grown
on tho farms, and which aro to bo con
sumed by tho non producers. Tho
entire population of any section is in
terested in whatbv?r may contribute
to this result, and it is clearly demon
strated that good roads are a prime
factor in tho development of tho coun
try, while providing tho greatest
economy in bringing tho producer and
consumer together, so that both classes
will profit by easy aud cheap transpor
tation over our public roads.
How can wo secure better roads in
tho South? This is tho question to be
discussed by practical men in the Good
Hoads convention which will be held
in tliia city while tho road-making is
being demonstrated on tho roads and
streets. Organized and practical lines
must bo laiddown to secure the results
aimed at, and it is necessary that every
citizen shall givo his moral nnd finan
cial support to measures which are in
tended for tho benefit of all. Good
roads mean a drect benefit to every
farmer, as there ia ro plan that will do
more to enhance the value of lands and
develop rural communities than per
manent and woll constructed highways.
Nothing cnn bo found to contributo
more to tho contentment and happiness
of a farming population, and whatever
conduces to this state of affairs on the
farms confers lasting benefits upon
towns and cities, for the prosperity and
advancement of the farmers aro quick
ly reflected in tho growth and wealth
producing character of their neighbors.
Whilo thero is great unanimity upon
the advantages of good roads, there is
in reality very little practical know
ledge as to tho means and appliances
for securing this desirable result, and
hence tho proposed convention ought
to attract mon from every walk of life,
especially thoso who aro engaged in
making and executing the laws of the
State. Tho burden of constructing
and maintaining good roads must not
fall upon any particulur class, and
while the work of road-building is a
practical necessity, there is also an
imperative requirement in providing
the ways and means for constructing
roads upon an equitable and just basis.
This can bo ascertained by discussion
and demonstration, and hence the pro
priety of organizing Good Roads as
sociations whilo giving instruction in
practical road-building. Doth of these
objects will be attained in the coming
of tho "Good Roads Special" next
month to Greenville, and such an op
portunity is rarely given any people at
so moderato a or$t.
The citizens of Greenville are muk-*
ing full preparation for tho accommo
dation of the hundreds and thousands
who aro expocted from every quarter
of tho State, and in addition to tho
hotels and boarding houses, tbe private
families are asked to take boarders for
tho week in order to provide for any
extra demand on this occasion.
