WEDNESDAY, JAN. S, 1902.
There seems to be no special need
of much legislation by the d'encral
Assembly, which convenes next
Tuesday, but the probabilities are tha(
the full fort/ day.s allowed by the
Constitution will be taken up.
It is said that Senator Hanna has
received in the appointment of Gover
nor Shaw, of Iowa, to the olhce of Sec
retary of tin: Trea>ury another em
phatic intimation that his influence
with the present administration is not
as powerful as he would desire.
Some of the newspapers, and even
some of the politicians are borrowing
trouble about the disposition of the
surplus iu the treasury. They needn't
worry; Congress will not ouly make
way with the surplus, but perhaps
create a deficiency.
The I'nited States must soon reach
an ultimatum with the Filipinos.
Already the islands and their inci
dents have cost us nearly ?f>00.000,
000. How long the people of this
nation will consent to pay out a half
million of dollars every day to pro
long this experiment in imperial co
lonialism is anunguessable conundrum.
Hut that they will tire of it eventually
One of the greatest needs of the
times is the raising of more bread
stuffs by all our people engaged in
agricultural pursuits in our county.
There is always a demand for corn,
because it is the very basis of all our
breadstuff^ and stock foods. No
farmer can afford to raise cotton with
which to buy corn?in other words to
buy his meat and bread. It is too
risky a thing to do.
The statistician of the department
of agriculture has lately returned from
a trip to Europe undertaken for the
purpose of arranging with the Euro
pean governments for an interchange
of crop reports with the I'nited States.
The negotiations were successful, and
it is expected that the plau will bo in
operation next autumn. The step is
a very important one. Heretofore
this country has had to depend upon
private sources for information of for
eign crops, which was always incom
plete and sometimes inaccurrate. The
value of such reports to the Ameri
can farmer is considerable, sinco the
prices of American farm products are
largely influenced by foreign crops.
Skillful and aggressive leader
ship of the Damocratic minority in
Congress will be of tremendous value
to the party and to the country. The
present session of Congress may bo
made an educational session to an
exceptional degree. A firm and faith
ful defense of the people's cause in
every instance of the evil legislation
now contemplated by the Republicans
will mean ultimate benefit. In the
Congressional* campaign s this year, as
in th?* Presidential campaign of 1904,
the teaching of the acts of the present
Congressional session should mean
^deserved profit to the Democratic
party and a regained security for the
Mark Twain, it is said, has written
a book which is to be published in a
hundred years. His purpose, doubt
less, is to let our descendants know
about us in a way that the literature
of this day would not allow. But the
American humorist has been quite
out-done by an Austrian professor.
The professor will leave to the
museum of Prague $15,000 with an
interesting condition. This is that
at his death all his personal belong
ings, including his clothes and furni
ture, shall be packed in air-tight
cases and preserved for 200 years, so
that the people of that future age
will be able to know exactly how a
professor at the beginning of the
twentieth century lived.
From January 20 to 25 inclusive,
a Good Roads Congresb will be held
in Augusta, Ga., and earnest efforts
are 'oeing made to influence the at
tendance en masse of the people in the
numerous eounties surrounding Au
gusta. The railroads will put on
special rates, and speakers of national
reputation will instruct the people
upon the economic value of good
roads, the roads of the world, best
methods of construction, the legal
necessities of this section, etc Ad
dresses will be made by Hon. Martin
Dodge, director of tho road division
of the U. S. Department of Agricul
ture; by M. O. Eldridge, assistant
director of the division; W. H. Moore,
president of the National Good Roads
Society; Superintendent Machen of

machinery will be on hand, in charge
of the National Good Roads Society,
and road making and working will be
carried on for the five days under the
direction of that society for the in
struction of the public. With this
machinery the most rapid, economical
and modern methods of road improve

exercises and addresses will occur on
the 23d and 24th, and much good is

We are indebted to Attorney Gen
eral Bellinger for a copy of his report
as to his investigation of the Virgiuia
Carolina Chemical Company, the al
leged fertilizer trust in this State.
It covers, with the exhibits, some
fifty pages of printed matter, and it is
a p:ipcr that is full of interest from
first to last. The Attorney G encrai
details what steps he has taken and
reports fully what he has discovered.
Ho also recommends to the General
Assembly the adoption of certain pro
posed measures which he thinks will
wipe out the trust evil from South
Carolina. It is the beginning of a
long fight aud one that will occupy
much of the time of the G coeval As
sembly at its coming session.
