Those who can't look on the Bunny
side of life these days must cither he
terrible old croakers or confirmed in
valids. It's not thc Bun's fault that
you can't look on him.
That very few eolored people co.n

thinks it has fathomed the secret. It

and forgets all about them. Happs

The supreme court aud the circuit
judges, sitting cn bane, have decided
that railroads cannot require a passen
ger, who failed to purchase a ticket,
to pay twenty-five cents in excoss of
the regular fare, as has been the cus
tom in tho past. All that a conductor
can collect under the law is three
cents per mile.

Every town or densely populated com

Immigration for the fiscal year just

An exchange saj?s that a now bunco

A man enters the store, displays a
government badge and states that he
is in the secret service and on the

whole thing is a fraud.
The recent elections in Texas put
two-thirds of tho oountios of that
State under prohibition, and the pros
peats are that liquor selling will soon
be prohibited throughout the State,
exoept, perhaps in one or two large
cities. Under local option regulations
prohibition seems to be sweeping the
South. Wbensver the question is
voted on tho result is -.imost invari
ably in favor of prohibition.
A circular issued by the leaders in
the Republican party in New Orleans
to the white Republicans of the South
calls for the abandonment of the party
on the ground that the president has
so identified himself with cegroism
that whito men cannot belong to it.
The oiroular declares that tho party
has fallen into the hands of a violent
reactionary, naming the president,
and cites the lunch with Booker T.
Washington, the Appointment of Crum
.s collector at Charleston, and tho
Indianapolis affair as "negrcphiiism,"
and concludes: "No self-respecting
southern Republican can longer an?ll

A oiroular of instructions to inter

concerned has been issued by the com
missioner of internal revenue, calling
attention to the gross irregularities
and violations of law that now exist
io tho handling and sale of manufac
tured tobacco, snuff, cigars and cigar
ettea by jobbers and dealers. A prac
tico generally prevails of exposing
these taxable articles for sale separ
ated from the packages bearing the
stamps denoting the payment of the
internal revende tax. This, it is said,
is a serious violation of the law . aud
regulations, which it is the purpose
of the commissioner to remedy. Job
bers and dealers are given until No
vember 1, 1903, to get their stock on
hand in order, after which date all

Over in Georgia tho Legislature is
investigating lobbyism, but it is be
lieved it will not amount to much.
Lobbyism is a crime, it is true, but as
long as there arc politics and politi
cians there will be lobbyism. They
go hand in baud together and have
existed sinoo the days of anoient
Rome. Reforms in this Hue have
been tried time and time again, but
what little benefits have 1 eeo accrued
were only temporary.
Sing Arider ion's Praise.
Tho members of the .Sumter Guards,
tho Washington hight Infantry, the
Irish Volunteers, the German Fusiliers
ngd the J'nhnetto Guard, tho compa
nies of Charleston's militia that were
ni tho encampment at Anderson, have
been making some remarkable: state
ments about the "great timo" they hud
there. They can hardly lind words
with which to express their sentiments
with regard to Anderson people. Tho
officers are also extravagant in their
praise of tho thriving up-country city.
Capt. II. C. Wohlers, m speaking nf
flic encampment, said yesterday: "The
damp was ideally located. Tho tents
were well shaded by giant oaks and
the parade ground was smooth and
even. The behavior of tho troops was
almost perfect. They obeyed orders
without tho least demur und entered
into the drill practico with commepda
"The people of Anderson exerted
themselves and did all in their power
to render us comfortable. Some of
tho boys were a little sore on the treat
ment they received nt tho hands of a
lew of the fair maids. 1 suppose tho
boys attempted to be social ami friend
ly, and the tr i il B thought they were
mashers, and snubbed them; after they
became acquainted, though, the troops
mid the girls of tho city wero on the
best of terms. I thitik the encampment
was a great success."
Capt. Robson, of the Washington
Light Infantry, said: "It is difficult
to givo any expression of my opinion
of the encampment without becoming
lulsomo and florid. Our stay was most
pleasant and profitable. Tho citizens
of Anderson tried themselves and en
tertained us to the queen's taste. The
regulars who were with ns greatly as
sisted in 'ho training of the troops.
Capt. F 'S*er would take notes while
the troopB were drilling and point out
any weak spots that would show up.
The camp was well situated, and every
thing moved off' smoothly.-News and
Courier, 10th inst.
In speaking of the return of the
Charleston companies, the Evening
Post of Monday says:
"At several of the armories, notably
at the Irish Volunteers1 Hall, refresh
ments had been prepared, and the sol
diers had a good time around the ta
bles. The men who did not go on the
encampment were anxious to hear the
experiences of the men who did, and
the latter did not seem to tire of tell
ing the story. There was mach to tell.
The boys had a novel experience. It
was the first time that they had been
on n regimental encampment, they had
learned a good deal of the practical
side of the soldier's lifo and they had
found Anderson and her people pleas
ant and attractive. The soldiers hiA
cat up pranks, ns they all will do, and, I
of course, they had to tell about these
things, as well as the dances, card par
ties, affairs of the heart and other hap
penings of camp. They wore unani
mous m dedaring that they hadamost
delightful time. The people were all
hospitable and pleasant, and it was to
their efforts to make the stay of the
troops enjoyabl that the militiamen
had such a line time.''
