WEDNESDAY, NOV. 30. 1901.
Anderson is growing more rapidly
than any other city in the State in
proportion to size.
The thread trust made $12,1)00,000
during thc past year. The people who
get the dividends probably do not lie
awake nights thinking about the para
ble of the rich man, thc eamel and the
-?ye of the needle.
Clark Howell, editor of the Atlanta
Constitution, is announced as a can
didate for governor of Georgiain 1906.
Mr. Howell is a typical young South
erner, .standing for the best interests
of the progressive South, and Ccorgia
would honor itself by making him the
governor of thc State.
Arbitration treaties are becoming
universal. Denmark and Holland
have recently concluded a treat) bind
ing themselves to submit every quos
lion which may arise between them,
without exception, to arbitration.
This plan, generally adopted by thc
powers, would mean nothing less than
The negroes are killing each other
at a rapid rate in this State. Nearly
every one of them carries a "gun,''
and they seem to have little hesita
tion about using it. For an ordinary
offense calling for a blow they shoot
each other to death. Everybody who
reads the newspapers must have been
\impressed with this fact. Thc whiten
\re quite too quick on the shoot, but
*b.e negroes are quicker still.
Thc Philadelphia Record is right
^ ben it says temporary defeat wil^
not prevent Alton B. Parker from
holding tho position to which he is
entitled in the councils of the Demo

who imagine that the great constitu
tional and historic party of thc coun

election. Thc party has too long
been used to such extreme popular
manifestations lo doubt a return of

Throughout the country tho idea
of tariff reform has taken a linn hold,
and indications multiply that thc
fight is to go to a finish. It is a cause
that appeals to the people, for the
reasonjtbat every day that the protec
tive tariff exists in ita present shape,
it gives plain evidences of its opprcs
sive and unjust exactions. It is a
grievous tax upon business; it is an
oppression of the people in its unjust
enhancement of the cost of neces
sities of life.
In view of the prosperous condition
of the country it is probable that
more people arc in possession of cash
money than for many years in tho
past, and it is the purpose of theso
lines to warn them against carrying it
on their apersons or hiding it away
about tho house. Wise and prudent
individuals will deposit their surplus
earnings, be it much or little, in a
bank, where it is absolutely safe.
Should you not heed this admonition
you may fall viotim of a robbor, bur
glar or disastrous fire. Then you
would grieve over "spilt milk."
The women of South Carolina arc
exceedingly anxious that a reforma
tory and industrial school for juvenile
offenders should bc established in
this State. The Federation of Wo
mens1 Clubs at its last meeting ap
pointed a committee to endeavor to
secure such an institution. This com
mittee is trying to effect an organi
zation in each county and to arouse
public interest in the work. The
good women deserve and should have
the encouragement of our whole peo
ple, and we hope their efforts will bc
orowned with success.
The State Board of Canvassers met

less than half that polled in the Demo

On December 5, 11MW, thu cold, icy
fingers of death claimed this precious
ono as its victim and her soul took its
flight to tho mansion upyondor. Some
times w? feel depressed and lonely,
but the Lord had some wise purpose to
accomplish by this n(Miction, and wu
must submit to His will at nil times.

Called hence by early doom,
Just came to show how sweet a

- Mr. Hanes at Orangeburg has
reported to Secretary of State Gantt
an interesting find in the form of a
colonial bill engraving plate, whioh
was ploughed up in a field at Orange
burg. The plate is 3x4 inches and is
well preserved. It is worth about
$200. From it colonial $3?0 bills
were printed. One Bide bears this in
print: "This bill entitles bearer to
receive thirty Spanish dollars or the
value thereof in gold or silver, ac
cording to a resolution of Congress
passed at Philadelphia November 2,
1776." OQ the reverse side appears,
"United Colonies Continental Cur
rency Thirty Dollars."
