The revenue bond scrip case, in
volving the validity of about $1,H0U,
000 worth of South Carolina eerip held
by a citizen of New York, is again be

years ago in Fairfield County the scrip

turned down, the property being after

Wc have received a copy of a ueal
and interesting folder, issued by the
?and and industrial department of the
Southern Railway setting forth the
wonderful resources of South Caro
lina. Wide circulation will be given
to the folder with a view of attract
ing capital and residents to this State.
The Southern Road is giving consider
able attention to industrial and agri
cultural pursuits in South Carolina.
The work is in charge of M. V. Rich
ards, the land and industrial cgent of
the road, and he has a large force of
assistants under him, who give their
entire time in traveling through the
State gathering facts and figures of
their resources, tho financial condi
tion of the State and thc splendid op
portunities offered to capitalists and
The Columbia correspondent of the
News and Courier says any wide
awake city or town that wants a de
sirable manufacturing plant, may do
well to get in touch with this inquiry
that has been received by Cora>uiis
eioner Watson : "One of our clients,
now owning fine silk mills, desires to
establish ono or more mills in thc
South. The very great demand for
silk requires that new mills be located
?t the earliest possible moment. We
have propositions from points in North
Carolina, but before a personal rep
r?sentatives is sent to investigate wc
would like to know of any opportuni
ties in your region." Anderson would
be a fine location for such a plant, and
we suggest that our Chamber of Com
merce make some inquiry in reference
to the matter. _
The Florenco Times of tho 3rd inst,
says : "The Anderson Intelligenoer
has been makin" 9. specialty for some
time, of runt ? personal reminis
cences of veterans in tho Civil war, a
most interesting collection of articles.
The Intelligencer ought to have been
printing these stories as pages of a
book to bo bound hereafter. It would
make a fine volume and a valuable
addition to our history in this State.
We urge our good brother Langston
not to allow ouch an opportunity to bo
loat." There is no doubt that the
articles would make a most valuable
and interesting book, but it is impos
sible for us to print them in that form.
The stories are on reoord in the files
of The Intelligencer, and perhaps io
tho futuro some person may publish
them in book form.
A few days ago in one of our daily
exohanges we read three telegrams
from three correspondents ID differ
ent towns giving accounts of children
being oither killed or seriously wound

tols or guns. There are many people
?ho thoughtlessly leave loaded fire
arms about where there are children
ribo know little about their use. Boys
are notoriously curious, and anything
in the shape of a gun or a pistol has
an irresistible attraction for them.
They cannot resist the desire to han

to mourn the deaths of the little ones

little preoaution. The leaving of a

excusable and has led up to more than

Returns from thu national election [

Congress will be Republican by a
majority <jf orin?te. The Demo
crat- had confidently hoped that the
House would be Democratic even if
thc presidential ticket were defeated.
Of thc doubtful States, those in
which the hardest light was made, the
Republicans carry New York, New
.Jersey, Connecticut, Indiana, Dela
ware, Montana and West Virginia,
with thc vote in Maryland and Ken
tucky close and still in doubt. Mis

cratic majority, though the vote in
that State will bo ? lose.
William L. Douglass, the Demo
cratic nominee for governor of Massa
chusetts, is tin; only Democrat elected
chief executive of a Northern States.
All the States of thc South remain
solidly Democratic, and almost with
out exception send solid Democratic
delegations to Congress.
Later election returns show no
change in the figures already given.
Roosevelt and Kai. banks have been
elected by a larger majority than Mc
Kinley received. They seem to have
carried every doubtful State.
The Republicans carry thc Stales of
California, Connecticut, Delaware,
Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kan

A boy offered to sell kittens to a noted Methodist
minister on the ground that they were Methodist
kitlens. He would not buy, and afterwards, while
in company with a Baptist minister, the same boy
was trying* to sell them as Baptist kittens. ''Are
