The Lewis and Clark Exposition is
open and ready for visitors at Port
land, Gregou. The exposition itself
ia probably very similar in all respects
to other big shows held in recent
years, but the trip across the Con
tinent will alone he worth the lim- oi
any one who has the time and means
to visit Portland.
It is stated that the President ha*
finally yielded to the u-pent represen
tations of the Republican leaders in
Congress and has promised not to call
Congress in special session until after
the fall election, presumably on the
following .Monday, November 13.
The opponents of the president's two
important policies, extension control
of the railways and a re adjustment of
those tariff schedules which, in his
estimation, require change, now de
clare that they won a great victory
and they predict that ultimately the
president will abandon the special
session idea entirely and that the
next Congress will not meet until
the day prescribed by law, J )ccember 4.
There will be no more discussion
now in this country relative to the
constitutionality of tho franchise tax
law of the various States. A ease
that was carried by the corporations to
the United States Supreme Court, haa
been decided by that tribunal, which
holds that the law is valid and not in
contravention of the supreme law of
the land. This has been a much
mooted question all along, many of
the corporations holding that tho law
taxing franchises was without con
stitutional warrant and therefore in
valid. It being now established be
yond all doubt that the law iH con
stitutional, thfe States will proceed
without any trouble to collect taxes
under this law.
The directors of the Anderson Coun
ty Fair Association havo decided to
hold another Fair during tho month
of October. The event last fall was
hastily arranged, it was necessarily
much restricted in tho nature of its
exhibits, but the interest taken in it
was ^ratifying and the fair was a suc
cess. It is intended this year to have
the agricultural and industrial inter
eats represented as well as tho usual
display of fine cattle and horses. The
Fair oan be made an.event of pleasure
and profit to tbo people at home, and
as a medium of advertising the coun
ty's resouroos its value will be great.
It deserves the hearty support and
encouragement of overy citizen in the
Tho following press dispatch from
Portland, Oregon, under dato of tho
7th inst., tclla how they treat wife
beaters in that State: "Charles Mo
Ginty, a wife-beater, suffered twonty
? lashes on tho bare baok today, boing
the first sufferer under the new 'State
law. Tho lashing was performed by
tho county jailer under the direction
of the sheriff and a physician. Tho
whip waB a braider black snake mado
of raw hido with four iashes. Mc
Ginty, after being sontenoed, Was hus
tled to jail, where ho was stripped to
>^ ..the waist. Iiis manacled hands wore
tied to a door in tho jail oorridor high
above bis head. Blood was drawn at
tbo fourth blow. MoGinty writhed
and groaned and strained at tho man
soles binding bis wrists." This is o
good law, and should be adopted by
every State in the Union.
K***' The cause of good and pure govern
ment has been greatly strengthened
throughout the country by the signal
victory won over the party bosses in
Philadelphia. The fight to save the
city from the corrupt and selfish prac
tices of the ring that controlled all
public improvements has attracted
national attention. Tho revelation.'
of corruption there are sim.iar tc
those in'St. Louis, where the present
governor of Missouri, Joseph "W. Folk
whilo acting as prosecuting attorney
of the western city, exposed the
shameful graft and sent many of th<
offenders to tho penitentiary, Ic
Philadelphia an outraged public for
ccd the mayor to veto measures foi
city improvements involving million ?
of dollars, in which private greet!
would have profited at the expense ol
the people. The evidences of corrup
tion in city, State and national gov
ernments are becoming more alarming
each year, but it is an admitted faot
that abases are particularly pro val col
in the largo municipalities. It it
there that the fight for pure govern
ment must be waged most uncompro
The colleges of South Carolina have
olosed this year's work, and the num
ber o? graduates 'of the institutions,
both State and denominational, is
X larger than usual, tfhe young mot
,nd the young women, who have com
?t?d the preliminary requirements
of an.education and arc now enteriug
upon the real work of life, should
carry hope and encouragement to the
th">sands who arc stuggling for the
pn .ege of better school advantages
and cannot gefe them, to the thous
ands of white children iu this State
who are growing up in absolute ignor
ance under the indifferent guidance
of parents who do not care. The col
lege- are doing well, their continued
good work is gratifying, hut the com
mon schools are not keeping pace
with them. The cause of the com
mon schools need- special encourge
mcut, encouragement of a financial
kind, and until facilities are provided
to keep every child in the land in
school for a reasonable period each
year our educational system will con -
tinue to he one-sided and inefficient.
Under present conditions the facili
ties, while inadequate, are in many
instances grossly neglected, and the
only proper remedy seems to he a com
pulsory attendance law.
The prospect of peace between Rus
sia and Japan grows brighter each
day. Roth countries are now ready to
accept peace proposals. The prob
able terms of peace between the vic
tors and the vanquished arc exciiiug
much speculation, but it is <;uitc cer
tain that Japan will demand a heavy
money indemnity, a Japanese protec
torate over Manchuria anc' Korea, the
cession of Port Arthur and parts of
the trans-Manchurian railroad, for
feiture of the warships interned at
Manila, the withdrawal of Russian
warships from the far east for a period
of 2"> years and '.he occupation of
Vladivotok until these conditions arc
fulfilled. The result of the war has
been crushing and humiliating to Rus
sia, hut it is after all a great blessing
to Russia and tho rest of the world.
The revolution at homo caused by the
reverses in the cast will bring about
many needed reforms and will event
ually give to the subjects of tho des
potic C'/.ar a constitutional govern
ment. Russia has been decisively
cheeked in her dangerous agressions
in the far east, which have threatened
the peace of the world. The utter
collapse of her imperial plans of cou
quest will make for 'liberty and re
form and internal rather than external
Little Philip Pruitt.
On last Wednesday evening at 0
o'clock, when the alludes of night had
curtained nil in darkness, the silver
cord time bound little Philip, tho 1S
mouths-old son of Mr. and Mrs. J. C.
Pruitt, of Starr, S. C, to this earth,
was broken and his little soul took its
ilight to a brighter home above.
No moie will his little aisrers and
only hrother hear the aweet voice nnd
pratliug noise ot little Philip.
He was sick only a ahort time, but
had a complication of diseases, and all
that loving parents, friends and skill
ful physicians could do to alleviate his
pain proved to b? in vain, as God, who
rules all things, thought his little soul
too pure and gentle to stay here in
thin world of sin and Borrow.
We miss him here but will hnve to
part with him with the hope of again
meeting him in Henven, where there
will be no seperations.
The funeral sen ices were conducted
by Itev, liailey, alter which, his little
body was laid to rest in tho c* >tery

The lady in Brushy Creek who had
snap beans for dinner on the 28rd of
; May, was a good gardonor, but Mrs.
E . M. Brown, of Denver, had them on
the 15th of May. Perhaps it might be
t of interest, to gardeners to know that
Mrs. Brown's early beans were of the
stringless green pop variety. They
were planted in March and were up
I and about 4 inches high when the
heavy frosts of tho 16th and 17th of
April came, but were saved from its
I killing blast by being covered at night
with planks, which were supported
every six feet with rooks. It was acme
t trouble, but she was more than repaid
by having plenty of early beans.
