Candidates have to stop every now
and again in their work of organizing
their forces in order to nail sonic
campaign lie. The air is full of them.
The Cotton States Association of
the Commissioners of Agriculture
gave their estimate on Friday of thc
cotton crop as 9,713,394. The esti
mate for South Carolina is 77"),OOO
bales, which is 15,000 more than last
The iirst primary election is over,
and many good men have been disap

good have been succesful. Let all
abide the will of the majority, and let
none become sour or revengeful over
The United iStates Court of Ap
peals has decided that a Federal Judge
can imprison a County Judge for con
tempt for failing to carry out thc
orderB of the Federal Court. The
decision is likely to stir up no end of
feeling and evpression.
Census figures show that the emi
gration of negroes to the North is
steadily increasing, and the opossum
goes before him as the bee preceded
the white man in earlier years. The
'^brother in black" appears to be
losing his tropical nature and stands
the cold up north far better than just
aftor "freedom came."
It is now announced that Gen.
Miles will go to the Philippines, a
thing he has been- wanting to do for
so long. He wants to get a personal
insight into the condition of our army
there. But recently he seemed throt
tled and it was thought he would be
stung out of his office. The situation
must be improving.
Texas has been more successful in
dealing with truBts than any other
State in the Union, and it is not on
record that it has tended to drive away
capital. Capital hesitates to invest
in States that hesitate to enforce
the laws that are on the statute books.
To enforce even a bad law is better
than to allow trusts and corporations
to do as they please.
The Edgefield Advertiser, after the
eleotion returns are recorded, makes
this home thrust at one of its fellow
citizens: "It is probable that Colonel
James H. Tillman will preserve as a
priceless heritage for his posterity
and for perusal during his declining
years the exposure of bis cbaraoter
and biography as written by the daily
and weekly press of the State? Nay,

The Board of Trustees of Clemson
College met at Clemson last Saturday
and unanimously elected Prof. P. H.
Mell, of Auburn, Ala , President of
the college. Ho is at present profes
sor of geology and botany in the Ala
bama Agricultural College and direc
tor of the experiment station at Au
burn. Prof. Mell is a son of the
famous Dr. Mell, once chancellor of
th,e University of Georgia, and a man
of wide reputation as a scholar and
The autumn business campaign
promises to open up with bright pros
pects. Cheering news of abundant
food and forage crops comes from all
over the country. Cotton prices are
good. One of the early indications
of opening and brightening business
has been the thronging of buyers
from all sections of the country to
New York, Boston, Philadelphia and
Baltimore. In New York alone it is
estimated that there are 3,000 buyers
registered at the hotels and their daily
purchases must r> n up into the mil
lions. The reports of the government
as to crop conditions have caused
wide-spread feeling that the coming
fall season is going to be one of tin
best in the country.
Republican protestations of hostil
ity to the trusts, voiced under a pan
icky apprehension of defeat in the
approaching Congressional elections,
have no effect on the popular miud at
this late day. The record of the Re
publican party is that of unfailing
obedienoe to the will of the trusts.
The political record of the trusts is
that of unwavering financial and moral
support of the Republican party.
The two have been in olose partner
ship ever since the trusts were nursed
to strength by the malign operation of
a high protective tariff. The people
have suffered greviously as a result
of this partnership. They know that,
to get rid of the trusts, they must got
rid of thc high protective tariff. They
know that to get rid of the hinh pro
tective tariff they must get nd of the
Republican party in control of the
- Much of the charity that begins
at home is too weak to travel.
There hau never been a time, in !
all probability, when so many peo
ple of all a^es, sexes and condi
tions have become self-destroyers!
It is an cvery-day chronicle-very
rarely an omission from each day's
happenings. Like the eruptive volca
noes, there seems to be many more
than usual. There are physical dis
turbances in the earth and mental as
well as moral disturbances in human
kind to match them. We are living
in an agc of unrest, and the despair
ing are trying to make their way out
of their troubles by a short route, if
it is a violent one. Young women
and young men are suicides. They
take poison, use pistols, jump io
deep water to drown themselves,
and it is s dreadful symptom of
thc strenuous life of this period of
our history that tho young, who
should be the happiest of our citizen
ship, should thus uncover their de
spair and desperation in self-destruc
tion. If suicide has any redeem
ing feature whatever, it would ap
pear to be the last hope of the aged,
who have outlived fortune, home and
friends. Their condition is a sad
one, for the future holds but little
consolation for the ar?ed. who have no
hope in a hereafter.

No provision has been made for com
pensation for those who perform this
service, but it is reasonably and confi
dently hoped that those who have been
appointed will cheerfully render the
service required, and it is nlso hoped
thnt every native born resident of
every neighborhood will deem it a
privilege and pleasant duty to render
the Township committees prompt and
zealous aid in the enrollment of the
names of their fathers, brothers, sons,
husbands and neighbors who served in
the anny or navy of the Confederate
States. Many a Confederate hero,
while in tho dark hours of imprison
ment, in the helplessness of the hospi
tal or in the short, sharp agony of the
field, found support and consolation in
the belief that at home he would not
be forgotten, and yet, although nearly
half ot a century has elapsed since
that dreadful conflict, a correct Con
federate roll has not been secured.

Court Stenographer L. L. Motte has
returned from Boston, where he at
tended the annual meeting of the
National Shorthand Reporters' Asso

of the death of James D. Campbell,
who was its secretary and trensurer
and one of its priucipnl organizers, by
holding a memorial service in honor of
his memory in Fauueil Hall. There
was 21 very large attendance and some
beautiful resolutions were adopted,
which will be published later. Feeling
tributes to Mr. Campbell's character
and services to the association were
ottered by some of the ablest and most
distinguished stenographers in the
country, including the official report
ers of Congress. L. L. Motte and W.
