committee composed of ono member of

I TIIE LOCK-OUT PEOPLE.
I In Mr. McCall a's resolution was cm
! bodied a clause deploring the condi
! tion of the locked-out employes in thb
Horse Creek Valley millo. Another
resolution along the same line was in
I traduced by Mr. Cole L. Blease, of
Newberry. It reads as follows :
"Whereas, This convention has heard
with profound regret that the opera
tives of the cotton mills of Horse Creek
j Valley, in Aiken County, are in dis
tress, caused by the action of the cot
' ton mill presidents in ordering a lock
out in aaid mills, because of a strike in
a cotton mill in the State of Georgia.
"Be it resolved, That this convention
hereby extends to the . operatives of
Horse Creek Valley, on account of
their loyalty to the Democratic party
in the past, every assistance possible to
relieve them from the screws of. op
"Resolved second, That we condemn
the acts of the said mill presidents, as
heartless, unwarranted and unjust,
causing untold Buffering and distress
among the people who constitute one
third of the entire population of Aiken
"Resolved third, That we call upon
all law-loving citizens who feel that
the poor laboring whito men of our
State aro unjustly prohibited from
earning an honest livelihood, to extend
to the people of Horse Creek Valley
moral and financial aid.
"Resolved fourth, That we demand
of our law-makers the enactment of
such laws as will relieve and forever
protect tho laboring people of the great
State of South Carolina, who are the
bone and sinew of our land, from such
unlawful treatment in the future, and
such other laws we demand as will
prevent the crippling of values of real
estate and other property by combina
tion of capital."

FROM THE NATION'S CAPITAL.
From Our Own Correspondent.
WASHINGTON, D. C., May 20,1902.
The attempt to Morganize the small
national banks of the country mnde by
the Republicans of the House Commit
tee on Banking and Currency when
they reported the Fowler Currency
bill, which among its many objectiona
ble features provides for branch na
tional banks, was virtually killed for
the present session at a conference of
the House Republicans held last week*
although no vote was taken and the
conference adjourned to meet again
qext week to consider the same bill.
The death blow was given the bill by
Representative Power, of Maine, who
directed his attack especially upou the
branch bank clause of the bill, of which
he said: "It will Morganize our na
tional banks, this plan for branch
banks. The small banks of the coun
try will either have to liquidate or go
into branch banking." He told how
the branch banking law of Canada had.
reduced the number of banks in the
entire Dominion of Canada to 85; and
of how the law worked in the little
Canadian town of Woodstock just
ncros-. the border from his home,
Honiton, Me., Mr. Powers said: "There
were two private banks there. When
the law for branch banks was enacted
in Canada these two banks were ab
sorbed by the great banks in Montreal
and the interest rate, instead of de
creasing, went up." Tho Republican
bosses may try to put this bill through
at tho next session, but it has been
made plain to tuent that it will be too
dangerous to try to do so before tho
The old bur usually successful'plan
of using patronage to buy off opposi
tion to administration measures is be
ing used by Mr. Roosevelt on tho Re
publican members of the House who
aided the Democrats to overthrow thc
bosses and add ibo amendment repeal
ing the differential duty on relined
sugar to tho Cuban reciprocity bill.
Tho Sugar Trust has ordered that
amendment killed, because it would
decrease its profits about 98,000,000 a
year. The Republican bosses in the
Senate have told Mr. Roosevelt that
they can kill it in the Senate, and he is
now trying to secure the Republican
votes needed to get the House to agree
to the bill as it will be passed by the
Senate. There is some very desirable
Federal patronage that is now or soon
will be available, and this Mr. Roose
velt is offering to give the Republican
kickers of the Honse to reverse them
selves and vote as the Sugar Trust
wishes them to vote. If Mr. Roosevelt
succeeds in this dicker, as now seems
probable, the kickers may find them
selves called to account by their con
stituents. This isn't a good year for
It is difficult to shake off the bossing
habit. After President Palma had
been duly inaugurated President of the
supposedly independent Cuban repub
lic Secretary Root ordered him by
cable, not to receive tho credentials of
the British Minister to Cuba, who was
in Havana, until after the U. S. Minis
ter, who was detained in Washington
by tho delay of tho Senate in confirm
ing his nomination, had delivered his.
Tho minif *.er whose credentials aro first

received will become the dean of the
Cubau diplomatic corps. Palma will
obey, of course-he cannot afford to do
otherwise-but such bossing is not cal
culated to make either him or other
intelligent Cubans love this govern
Senator Pettus, although one ot the
oldest members of the Senate, is one of
its hardest workers. A visitor to his
committee room found him at work at
7 o'clock the other morning, and asked,
him if ho wasn't at work unusually
early. Ho replied: "Oh. no, I go to
bed reasonably early every night and
then I get up at 5 o'clock in the morn
ing, so that I am down here by seven.
! I am eighty-one years old and sound
i in mind and body. The only thing I
lack is money, and yet I don't know as

Charges have been filed with the
Civil Service Commission alleging that
money has been habitually used by low
grade employes of the Pension Burean
to secure promotion, and the Commis
sion is alleged to bo making a quiet
investigation. Such investigations are
always quiet, because then if they hap
pen to go against those with too mr?sh
pull to bo fought they can be husUeri
up without public scandal.
Three and a half million dollars were
added to tho Omnibus Public Build
ings bill by tho Senate Committee, and
tho bill now carries $20,041,180. The
whole bill is ono o? most daring log
rolling Bchcmes over put through Con
gress. Men who are fully cognizant of
the dan ger of the precedent sot hythe
bill have allowed themselves to be
silenced by appropriations for build
ings in which they aro interested. It
will not be surprising if some of them
live to regret sanctioning this measure.
Appropriations of public mouey should
not be made in this way. The only
rigat way is for every appropriation
asked of Congress to stand or fall upon
its own merits-an impossibility with
an Omnibus bill.
It is now regarded as certain that
this session of Congress will extend
well into July and possibly into Au
gust. No vote is expected in the Sen
ate on tho Philippine bill before the
first week in June. Then the Nicara
gua Canal bill will be taken up, ar d
will require anywhere from two to ih o
weeks to be disposed of. After that
tho Cuban reciprocity bill will be
brought forward, but that measure is
surrounded by so many uncertainties
that nobody is attempting yet to guess
how much time it will require. The
Republicans are trying hard to place
the responsibility for prolonging the
session upon the Democrats, bnt there
is really no reason for such attempts.
Whatover responsibility there may be
belongs to the majority and wil te
placed upon them by tho people.
