THOUGHTS ON \0TING.
Twelve days only will elapse be
tween now and the primary election.
The result of this election?the nam
ing of a United States Senator, mem
bers of the lower House of Congress,
State Senators and members of the
Rouse?will be locked upon by the
people everywhere as indicating the
intelligence and moral stamina of the
citizenship of South Carolina. Un
trammelled by Republican opposition,
undisturbed by factional differences,
there oan be no excuse for the selec
tion of any man whose ignorance,
moral turpitude or want of courage un
fits him for the position he seeks to
It is a well known fact that thou
sands of dollars have been wasted in
the enactment of laws in recent ses
sions of the Legislature which proved
to be unconstitutional, causing con
fusion to the counties, delay in the
courts and much unnecessary trouble
and expense to private individuals.
Of such was the county government
law, the jury law, the drainage law
and some others. Can there be auy
other cause assigned for this mislegis
lation than ignorance? Surely there
can be found among those offering
for public office men of sufficient
brains, culture and honesty to fill the
positions, and he who feels a pride in
his citizenship and hopes for progress
and prosperity should place the quali
fication of a man above friendship.
Ignorance is a field in which grows
rank weeds of vacillation, inconsist
ency, weakness and unreasonable pre
judices. Whatever of good grows in
such a field is planted and nurtured
by other hards. It is not indigenous.
In short, an ignorant man is at best
merely the tool for intelligence and
likely to be used as often for bad pur
poses as for good. The typo of man
here represented is not without
friends. Some of them have very
many, and to such we would suggest
that they will best conserve their
friendship and at the same time bene
fit their State and honor themselves
by declining to cast their votes for
this friend. These remarks aro di
rected more especially to our State
offices. It is a plain, simple plea for
intelligence and morals. ,
In the selection of representatives
for Congress, a Senator and members of
the House of Representatives, coupled
with intelligence and purity of life,
there should be undoubted moral cour
age and dignity. The industrial bat
tles which must be fought out in the
near future in the hallo of Congress
calls for the strongest men the State
can muster. Men of ability, courage
and dignity who will stand amidst the
brains of the nation, alone if necessary,
and battle for the rights of the plain
people of our Southlaud against whom
the iniquitous laws of the Republican
party are operating in a manner more
disastrous than they have ever thought
of. Legislation of the Republican
party enoourages and fosters the enor
mous combinations of capital which
have restricted competition and ncr
ruwed the field of employment. The
small factory and small store is rapid
ly disappearing, and with them the
numerous opportunities of beginning
life in a moderate way and gradually
winning comfort and independence.
A small clerkship, with barely more
compensation than is sufficient for
support is about all the average young
mau need hope to obtaiu. The pro
tective tariff law, a Republican meas
ure, which brings about great corpor
ate fortunes at the expense of the
plain people, operating against them
as an indirect tax which they are
forced to pay ou every article of cloth
ing they wear and on every instrument
or too* they use in the various pur
suits of life; these and other vicious
systems of legislation which are grind
ing the people to desperation, must
be corrected, and it can only be done
by the selection of representatives
who have the courage of their convic
tions and whose brains aud energies
will be constantly engaged in demand
ing the rights of the people. What is
needed by the South in Congress is
men whose dignity and wisdom com
mands a hearing. It has been so and
can be again. Victory cannot be won
over a Republican majority without
the constant waging of war, and men
who can be bought off or toled off by
an occasional appropriation sought, is
far from being the representative the,
people want. How insignificant ap
pear the appropriations secured for
South Carolina from the last seven
months' session of Cingress, when the
fact is known that the sum appropria
ted during this session reached the
enormous amount of one t housaud and
fifty-niuo millions, five I un 1 red and
fifty-seven thou? .id and tiftytwo
dollars, all of which is wrum* from the
addition to the indirect tax resulting
from the protective tariff law?. Is it
not time that .South Carulioa was
waking up to the necessity of sendiog
tuen to Congress whose energies will
be directed to the BEST iuterests of.
the plain people?
The cotton mills of this State have
organized a mutual insurance com
pany with headquarters at Greenville
for the purpose of insuring members
against loss by fire, storms, etc. The
company is known as the Southern
Manufacturers' Mutual Insurance
Company, and there is no capital
stock as the company will be conduct
ed on the assessment basis. The
company has been granted a commis
sion by the Secretary of State, and
the list of iocorporators include Jas.
L. Orr, J. A. Brock, V, A. Smyth and
many other mill presidents in various
sections of the State.
Public sentiment in favor of that
simple and effective form of anti-trust
legislation which will remove the du
ties on all articles controlled by the
more evil trusts gains strength and
volume day by day. There is a feel
ing that this is the only praotical way
in which the trusts can be successful
ly fought. The truth is known that
the monopoly trusts could not exist
but for the high protective tariff
which creates their monopolies. The
further truth is known that the Ameri
can people pay the gigantic tax im
posed by reason of the high tariff
which thus fosters and enriches the
trusts. This makes plain the man
ner in which the trusts are to be over
came. The tariff duties on all arti
cles controlled by the monopolistic
corporations must be removed.
To the oareful observer and earnest
enthusiast for a higher and better life
on the farm, there comes a thought
true and forcible,?are we educating
toward the farm or away from it? We
look at our primary schools, our high
schools, and do we not see the ten
dency almost wholly against the farm?
There is a remarkable development
and interest in agricultural education
in Europe, where it is common for
agriculture to be taught in every
grade, from the primary school through
the college. What is the tendency
in this agricultural nation of ours?
Too often, we fear, away from the
farm. The common school recruits
the academy, the college, the univer
sity; but does it recruit the agricul
tural and mechanical college, or do
what it ought to recruit the ranks of
good farmers? May we not hope the
time is near at hand when agriculture
will be taught not only in the com
mon schools, but the high schools and
colleges as well?

JUST now we are making another "raid" on Prices, and on every arti?
cle of Summer Merchandise we have CUT the PRICES so close until thera
hardly remains enough profit for living expenses. So it naturally follow
that there is money in it for you.
A great many people, 'tis true, are under the impression that when a
Merchant advertises a lot of Cut Prices on seasonable and staple,, goods that
there is a catch somewhere, and are wary about taking in .these Cut Prie?
Sale?. To those, especially, who are of this opinion we ask. that you visit our
Store, get our prices, note well the' quality of our Goods, and we promise to
convince you beyond a doubt that there are such things as Cut Prices.
Advertising Cut Prices and Bargains is not a "hobby" of ours, for only
twice during the year do we advertise these things, for since we have been loi
business we have established a reputation of seP^g the best Goods at clow!
prices the year round, so when we do advertise Cut Prices and Bargains 700
will find that they are unusually" good ones.
Business so far has been VERY good this Summer, and to make the
rest of the Summer months busy ones with us. we are offering unusual Bar
gains in our different departments. Run your eye over this list, and if there
