We are gratified to note that four
members of the "Fourth Estate" will
sit in the next General Assembly,
viz., Col. E. II. Aull, editor of the
Newberry Herald and News, Hon.
John 13. Towill, editor of the BateB

of the Marion Star and Capt. J. Wal

genial, courteous gentlemen, who will
ably represent their respective coun

stowed upon them.
Four States have just held Demo
eratic conventions and adopted plat
forms. In Ohio, Dryan'and freo sil
ver are endorsed. In Iowa silver was
ignored, tho trusts and the tariff were
made the issue. California Democrats
shied away from silver, not mention
ing it, but denounced trusts and the
tariff. In Wisconsin the Democrats
found plenty of material in State
issues to fill their platform, but gavo
a parting shot to trusts and the tariff.
This indioatss very clearly that trusts
and the tariff will occupy considerable
attention in the congressional fight
that is on at 1 in the prcsidcntal race
The phenomenal growth of cotton
manufacturing in the south is one of
the most interesting industrial devel
opments of the age. The present
generation witnessed tho practical be
ginnings of the movement, and the
claims then made that eventually the
southern mills would dominate the
?oti?u uiB?Ui?CtUriDg tf?uc of iu?
worldj seemed preposterous, yet that
domination is now measurably in
sight. As late as 1890 southern mills
consumed considerably less than a
third as much cotton as the northern
mills, and took less than a quarter
of tho entire consumption of the coun
try. Today our mills consume prac
ticably as much as the northern mills,
thereby dividing with them the total
amount of cotton consumed. When
it is said that there is dauger of build
ing too many cotton mills, nobody so
far as v/e know believes it. The faot
is that all the mills that are under
good business management are pay
ing good dividends.
"We feel constrained to say that
South Carolina is to be congratulated
upon the eleetion of Capt. D. C. Hey
ward as Governor. Nothing could
have taken place which would have
pointed with greater force to the fact
that an overwhelming majority of our
people are done with factionalism. A
plain, unassuming Democrat, free from
political partisanism as it has existed
in the Democratic ranks since 1890,
clean and upright as a plain citizen,
he stands out the embodiment of all
that could bc desired in a representa
tive of the entire people. His elec
tion means an era of good feeling
among al! classes from the mountains
to the seaboard, and heralds a return
to reason, scouring to the State for
the next two years-and we would
hope for a muoh longer time-a clean,
honest administration. He will go
into office in January altogether free
from obligations or embarrassments,
and will be able to meet every duty
without the slightest impidement
usually growing 'out of politieal en
tanglements. Tbe vote of his own
county, where he reoeived every vote
?'cant io the second primary except fifty
eight, is an endorsement whioh aids
materially in fixing tho people in all
other sections of the State in the
faith they repop?d in .the man from
Colleton. Tho Intelligencer was the
first newspaper in the State, perhaps,
to publicly mention Capt. Heyward
f?r Governor, on the occasion of his
vi?it to this city a year ago las? June.

which I highly j ri/-' and for which I
am truly grateful, h f. when 1 consid

more to be appreciated.
Appreciating then ns Ido this high
and responsible trust reposed in me by

can 1 We'll show yon how :
Following out this principle the question with us is not.how much profit
we can make, bat how little we can afford to take, preferring to give oar cus
tomers all we can, to help them to successfully oombat with the hardships
ihey mest. Knowing, then, as we do. that onr purchases are made with facil
ities that could not possibly be exoelled, and that ve are willing to sell goods
at a closer margin of profit,, wo do not think we ate immodest when we claim
to deserve the full confidence and patronage of our customers. And especially
may we make this claim when the PROOF 18 AT HAND to show that when
ever this confidence and patronage has been extended to us SPLENDID and
solid satisfaction has been the uniform result.
WHY PAY any more for Goods than you need to ? Why not, at least,
investigate our claim that we sell ALL GOODS at lower prices than are
quoted ai any tsimiiar Store?
SHOES for the entire family. Give us a ehanoe at your Shoe bill. Wo
will guarantee to save you money. We have two very special values in two
numbers in staple, standard quality goods. We guarantee every pair to be one
piece counter and solid inner sole, and heavy, solid leather, and the prioe is
