BY CLINKSCALES & LANGSTON. ANDERSON. S. C.. WEDNESDAY. JULY 3. 1901. VOTJTMR Y*YVTi___i?n ?
Our business for March, 1902, was Forty-five per Cent
more than for the same month in 1901. This is by far the
largest 3ales we have ever had in any previous March. Last
year we thought business pretty good in March, too.
Now there must be some good reason for this increase.
People don't come here to trade because they like us.
They wouldn't come here and pay us Cash in advance if
they could get the same Goods at the same prices on Credit.
They have found out that the Credit Clothiers' pri?es for
?good Goods are much more than our Cash Pri?es.
' Seme of you still think that you are receiving a great
favor from the Credit Clothiers when you buy on credit, and
that you are under moral obligations not to go elsewhere
when you have the Cash. You never stop to consider the
enormous rate of interest you pay for the accommodation.
Spot Cash I

reason we C AH and DO- ..

FROM THE NATION'S CAPITAL.
?FVon? Our Own Correspondent.
WASHINGTON, D. C., April 21,1902.
The administration ran up against
another mortifying humiliation last
week. After officially denying for
months that the Filipinos had been
treated cruelly and inhumanly by our
army officers, it was confronted by
evidence, including the testimony of
two eye-witnesses before the Senate
committee ou the Philippines, so plain
that it could not be dodged, nnd Secre
tary Root was compelled to practically
acknowledge that ho had known of
cruel treatment of Filipinos and had
directed Gen. Chaffeo to gather evi
dence with a view to court-martialiug
Gen. Jacob H. Smith, who ordoredMnj.
Waller to kill "everything over ten
Maj. Edwin F. Glenn, Lieut. Arthur
L. Gonger und other officers implicated
in testimony that has been given by
American soldiers. Secretary Root
sought to lessen this humiliation by
making public orders sent to Gen
('hailee to prosecute before court-mar
tials these brutes who have disgraced
the American uniform, but lie has only
convicted the administration of mis
representation by showing that after
such orders had been sent it persisted
in denying that there had been any
cruel treatment by responsible officers,
lt seems that there is no phase .f the
Philippine question that can ba ting
into without uncovering official lie?
By direct ion of the Republican bosses
Attorney-General Knox answered the
resolution offered in tho House, asking
him what ho was doing about the beef
trust, which is squeezing everybody so
outrageously, before it was neted upon,
by committee. He says n IT. S. Dis
trict Attorney is investigating to ascer
tain whether there in a beef trust, and,
if so, whether it is violating law.
Democrats in Congress will wmt n
reasonable time for Mr. Knox to report
result of his investigation, but if it is
not more satisfactory than the report
of the array officer sent by Secretary
Root to investigate the British mili
tary supply depot near New Orleans,
there will be something doing in the
trust line in Congress.
Senator Bailey, of Texas, is being
boomed for the Democratic Presiden
tial nomination by a group of Repre
sentatives, headed by Cochran, of Mo.,
who said of him: "Bailey is one of
the great lawyers of the United States.
He is familiar with every syllable of
American political history. He is a
Democrat of the old school. He be
lieves in the Constitution and the ob
servance of all its limitations. In pub
lic and private life his course has been
distinguished by rare purity of charac
ter and unswerving devotion to duty
and convictions. If elected, he would
devot? his great ability to the execu
tion of the laws. He would not barter
?nblic patronage for legislative favors,
[is chief advisors would not he the
trust magnates and syndicate bankers
and stock jobbers. If defeated, he
would emerge from tho contest unin
jured in fame. Senator Bailey is my
candidate for tho Democratic nomina
tion to the Presidency." Senator Bai
ley does not opprove of the boom for
him for the Presidential nomination
nor of the talk about making him the
Democratic leader in the Senate in the
next Congress. Of the former lie
would not speak directly, but what he
said of the latter is applicable to both:
"Some of my friends wanted to place
me in nomination for chairman of the
last caucus, but I thought it improper.
When the caucus meets in the Firty
eighth Congress, I intend to nominate
Senator Gorman for the chairmanship,
because I believe in all essential re
spects he is the best man for the place.
I prefer to do my duty in the ranks,
ana am willing to follow a safe leader
like Senator Gorman."
The Republicans of the Senate Com
mittee on Privileges and Elections,
knowing the popularity of the ideas of
direct election of Senatore, are trying
to kill it by trickery. They have by a
party vote, except that Senator Bur
rows had the manliness to vote against
it, adopted the amendment offered by
Senator Depew providing that the
election Of Senators and Representa
tives should be placed under Federal
supervision, and the qualification of
voters should bo prescribed by Con
trress. The Republican game is to thus
force the Democratic Senators to vote?
for on adverso report on the amended
resolution, because they know that
avery Democrat regards Federal super
vision of elections ns ono of the great
sst evils that could possibly befall the
country. It is a dodge to fool the
voters of tho country ns to the attitude
jf Senators of tho two parties on the
juestiou of direct election of Senators.
Rear Admiral Schley will go South
igain. He has accepted an invitation
to go to Jackson, Miss., from Mem
phis, as the guest of the State. He is
lae in Jackson May 1, and the next day
will go to Meridinn, where he will be
the guest of the city. As long as such
aonore ns these are paid hint by the
people, Schley isn't likely tocare about
official favors going to little Potts,
the only witness before the court on
inquiry who said that Schley was a
soward. , ... ,
If 82 Democrats had not rallied to
the support of the Cuban reciprocity
bill the general debate thereon would
not nave closed Friday and the passage
of the bill withont amendment would
aot now be assured. These Domocrats
violated no agreement in helping the
Republican leader ont of a hole-their
votes together with the 88 Republicans
who voted against him would have
knocked him out. They simply voted
with their personal inclinations. It
was demonstrated at a conference of
Democrats that it would be difficult, if
not impossible, to make the bill a party
issue. Consequently no attempt was
made to do so. It must, however, be
? little galling to the Republican bosses
of the House to know that with all the
influence of the administration to help
them pass a bill that had the endorse
ment of a Republican caucus they
would have been ignominiously beaten I
