WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2, 1902.
President Roosevelt calls Recession
anarchy and also says Lee was thc
greatest general of a?y agc. That
seems to be straddling thc fence very
It is said thc compromise proposed
by Republicans on the Cuban ques
tion will inure to thc benefit of thc
sugar trust, which, it is said, has
bought thc crop for two years.
A little whiskey poured into a tight
shoo will stop thc pinching, but thc
Charleston News and Courier insists
that it should bc poured from thc
level of thc shin, not that of thc chin.
Thc proposition to make lifo sena
tors of ex-presidents at a salary of
$25,000 is another of the efforts to
change the basis of representation in
the satiate. Every movement to dis
turb the absolute equality of thc
States in thc upper branch of Con
gress should bo promptly defeated.
In traveling through the country
it will be noticed that there aro a
number of roads branching out from
each other that have no sign board at
the fork to direct the traveler. Wo
think this a very important matter.
There should bo a sign board at every
one of theso forks. Wc think it
would bo a good plan for tho Super
visor to see to it that his road over
seers have these boards put up.
Tho Sumter Herald timely says :
"Mr. Bryan is very vindictive towards
all tho Democrats who did not sup
port hioi in 189(3 and 1900, and if he
has hiB way they will not havo any
place in tho party councils in future.
Ilili, Gorman, Francis and others
conic in for bitter condemnation from
him. As Mr. Brynn has about killed
tho Democratic party, it now looks
as if he was trying to bury it."
Col. B. W. Ball died at his home in
Laurens last Thursday and in his
death thc State loses ono of her best
citizens. Ile was a lawyer of ability, a
man of high character, who had served
his country in peace and in war with
conspicuous fidelity and streugth.
Of late years in addition to his law
practice he has been editing tho Lau
rens Advertiser, and its editorial col
umns always sparkled with brightness
and good sense.
That grand old hero and statesman,
Gen. TVade Hampton, celebrated his
84th birthday at his home in Colum
bia on Good Friday. The Columbia
State says the General's health has
been bad during the past year, but he
has oontinued cheerful and has taken a
lively interest in current events. Wo
join the many friends of the General
in extending congratulations, and
pray that God's richest blessings may
be his portion the balance of his life.
Senator Benjamin R. Tillman, it is
said, has practically acknowledged to
members of tho Senato committee on
privileges and elections that ho can
not prove thc charge ho made against
Senator John L. McLaurin that tho
latter was guilty of having accepted
promises of federal patronage in South
Carolina in roturn for his vote on thc
Paris pcaco treaty. This will prob
ably end tho matter of investigation,
though Senator McLaurin is very
anxious for it.
From the expressions of thc papers
it seems conclusive that the people
desire the curtailment of the State
campaign meetings, as they have got
ten to bo a great nuisance pud very
burdensome financially. Thc people
have become indifferent, and it cer
tainly seems that one or two meetings
in each Congressional District would
be sufficient, and if the people of any
Bpecial county desire a meeting of
their own they can have it, but let

Nexl Wednesday, '.?th inst., will be
President's Day at the Exposition in
Charleston, and tho occasion will no
doubt draw a large crowd to the "city
by the sea." One of the chief fea
tures of the program for the day will
be the presentation of a beautiful
sword to Maj. Micah Jenkins. The
President has stated that it would
give him pleasure to participate in
such a orremony, ana again expresses
his high admiration for tho gallant
bearing of Maj. Jenkins, who was his
fellow officer io thc Rough Riders. -A
special committee will have charge of
thc presentation ceremo .les, and ex
Governor Hugh S. Thompson, of New
York, has been named as thc chair
man of thc committee. Ho will speak
on behalf of South Carolina, and he is
the largest contributor to thc Jenkins
sword fund, which has been raised by
Voluntary contributions in and out of
Recently in Washington Mr. Bryan
waa asked whether he would he a
candidate for the Democratic nomi
nation for I'icsidcnt. Ile was quoted
as saying that he was not prepared to
speak about that matter. This was
the first intimation that he has an am
bition iu that direction. It would be
a mistake for him to seek thc nomi
nation. Ile would not come anywhere
gelling it, hut he might make it ex
tremely difficult for Democrats to get
together. In order for Democrats to
be successful in 1U04, they must have
harmony among their leaders and in
their ranks. All the signs iudicate
that they could not be harmonized
under the leadership of Mr. Bryan.
Thc Spartanburg Herald is correct
in saying that the Columbia State has
"done its ?State some service" in prov
ing beyond the shadow of <i doubt that
Col. James II. Tillman, Lieutenant
Governor, in his official capacity is
guilty of deliberate misrepresentation,
lt is hard to conceive why a man
occupying this high position would
undertake to misrepresent a matter
susceptible of positive proof. It can
not he charged in this instance, at
least, that The State is malicious, vin
dictive or partisan. Thc evidenoe
that the Lieutenant-Governor of South
Carolina is guilty of "bearing false
witness" is documentary, and it is
presented in such a way as to leave
him no possihle loop hole through
which to escape. Ile stands convicted.
Every drop of American blood in
our bodies should thrill with the glow
of spiritual kinship for tho patriots of
the two South African Republics and
should animate us with a resolution
to help them in their struggle for
liberty. There is no hostility to Eng
land in this statement of truth. The
English are our blood kin, but they
are in tho dreadful wrong in their war
to subjugate thc Boer people. They
know themselves that they are in the
wrong. Wc, of all thc peoples of
earth, should most clearly seo tho
truth that is apparent even to thous
ands of Englishmen. Wo should Bay
that we would like to save the two
South African Rep?blica from extinc
tion. There is no moral escape from
thia confession of duty. If wo can
now coldly witness thc crushing of
such a people as the Boers without
lifting a hand to succor them
the fact is appallingly ominous to
ourselves. It mcaus that we have
ceased to he Americans of the breed
of our fathers.
Corner Creek Items.
This Spring weather wo nie enjoying
now is very enchanting, especially to
the farmers, who are anxious to atart
their plows. It is March 27th and
scarcely anything of any importance
has been done towards the making of
another crop. Of courao, a few have
been plowing, but it certainly was out
of order, for tho ground has not been
in good plowing season thia yenr. It
baa just rained a "whole lot1' in thia
section, and we have had a good time
ao far, but, oh, my, we "boll cord"
puliera aro going to change our tune
somewhat now. The merry whistle of
the clodhopper o'er vale and hill can
aoon bo heard, and then we'll all be
happy and content.

on rock bottom, our credit system has been kept on rock bottom, and we are
pleased to announce to our friends that our business is on a solid rock founda

of satisfaction to every pound, and throw in with every purchase a smile
apiece for every member of his family. It is due also to the infallibility of j
the gilt-edged guarantee that accompanies every purchase, and the satisfaction
and confidence with whioh cnr customers feel that they can send even a child
to trade for them. We may have at some, time sold shoddy .'tuff by mistake,
