Darlington is the latest county to
vote on the dispensary question. An
?election was held in the county a few
days ago, and like her sister couuties,
the dispensary waB voted out by a ma
jority of two to one. There will be a
number of elections between now and
the end of the year, and the result in
each county will probably bc tho same.
All will give majorities against thc
dispensary system. The dispensary
is doomed, and like a sinking ship
even its own supporters are deserting
An effort is being made by several
municipalities in thc State to break
up the gambling evil. Men of more
cri?es prominence have been brought
before the authorities, and in a few
cases conviotion followed. If the
spasmodic wave of reform could be
made permanent, a great deal of good
could be accomplished. Gambling is
a universal evil. The spirit pervades
thc lend, and it will take constant and
persistent effort on the part of the
authorities to keep it down in a small

Sir Henry Irving, who wea univer
sally regarded aa the moat represen
tative English actor of modern times,
died suddenly in London Friday night.
He was a warm advocate of the estab
lishment of theatrea by municipali
ties, believing that by this means the
standard of the true drama aa distin
guished from miaoellaneona entertain
ments would bo r.uoeeaBfully upheld.
He devoted his career to the raiaicg
of the standard of his art, and during
his eventful lifo exemplified his views

nTho Emperor of Russia and the j
Emperor of Japan have signed their j
respective copies of the peace treaty,
thus officially ending tho war. Tho
struggle was one of the bloodiest in
the history of the world, and the
number ox men involved perhapB
made it the greatest. The effects of
the war will bo of far reaohing conse
quence. Japan has won her plaee in
tho first rank of nations and in East
ern affairs will be in a mssterf ul posi

and the empire of the Czar will be

Judge Prince, who ia now engaged
in presiding over the Gharleaton court
of sessions, is receiving the warm en
dorsement of the people of the State
generally in his bold stand in regard
to grafting and corruption in omeo
alleged to exist in the administration
of some of the county offioea. The
i grand Jury will make a thorough in?
vestigation, and if any malfeasance in
office exists, the guilty parties will
have to answer for it. The examina
tion of the books of county offices
' Should be more than a mere form. It
should be dono by an expert account
ant. The best way to proveut the
mismanagement of tho public funda is
- to have tho books of all officers regu
larly examined, and the laws should
moke provision for this reform,
George W. Murray, tho negro Re-'
j publican who once represented the
seventh district in Congress, must
1 serve a three years' sentence in tho
S tat-J penitentiary for forger*/. Mur
ray was convicted in the Girouit
Court of Sumter County. Tho case
was appealed to the Supreme Court,
and the verdict of the lower court
affirmed. '} He bas been a dominant
factor in the politios of his raoe and
has booti a leader in the Republican
conventions. And this is the man
who for years waa sent to Washington
by an illiterate blaok majority to rep
resent ono of the best districts in the
South. Is it any wonder that a supe
rior raoe took the ballot from the
black mau who was utterly incapable
. of exercising it except for thc.shame
and disgrace of the State?

(?overnor Heyward's election to thc
presidency of a large warehouse com
pany emphasizes his btatement mado
some timo ago that bc would retire
from politics ut the end of his present
term ac governor. Ilia tenure of the
executive ollicc has been marked by a
com nicndable firmness in dealiog with
difficult publio questions, and there
are thousands of people over thc State
who will receive his announcement
with regret. His administration has
been a successful one, and on moro
than one occasion he has displayed an
admirable spirit in enforcing thc laws
of the commonwealth in the faco of pn
unfriendly public sentiment.
The County Fair is in progress this
week, and everything points to thc
complete success of the event. The
exhibits reflect much credit on those
who have brought them here for dis
play. This is the beginning merely ?
und in tirr>o the fair will grow to be an
occasion of great and lasting good
every fall. Thc directors have work
ed faithfully to make thc fair success
ful, and in their efforts they should
have the moral and finaneial support
of every citizen of thc county. The
custom of holding these County Fairs
is being generally revived over the
State. Tho spirit is to be commend
ed. It is an evidence of that healthy
pride in local progress and develop
ment tb at must exist in every com
munity to make it prosperous.
Demanded Ten Cents.
The following dispatch in the Atlan
ta Constitution gives an interesting
account of a recent scene in Rome,
"Pay us ten cents for onr cotton or
we will bani it back home." Snob waa
the ultimatum iessod to the local cot
ton buyers by those farmers who
brought their cotton to Romo today.
Spot cotton opened at 02. then while
great quantities came in, it waa toon
apparent that none was to be bad at
that price. The farmers stood around
the street and talked among them
selves, but any price offered less than
10 cents met with instant refusal. It
was 10 cents or nothing.
Plead as the local buyers would, it
did not alter the casa in the least. Ten
cents was the upset price, and any
thing mentioned less that 10 canto was
liable to inaugurate either a fight or a
flow of language less religious than
emphatic or eloquent.
Matters stood in status quo until
about 4 o'clock this evening, when the
farmers, their wagons loaded with
cotton, assembled on lower Broad
street, formed thc parade and mnrebed
the principal streets of the city until a
lato hour. A bugler and a drummer
were procured, and a big banner bear
ing the si?n, "Pay us 10 cents for our
cotton or we will haul it back again,"
waved from a pile of balee upon the
The streets were soon lined with
people,' id the farmers were cheered
to the echo at every corner of the
stree, fa. It was evident to Hie most
casual observer that the sympathy of
the people was with the plucky far
mers. A feeble attempt was made
upon the part of eomo buyers to guy
the parade, but it did not work at all.
Vhe noonie cheered as the wagons, all
heavily Inden with bales of fleecy sta
ple rolled by.
The moat remarkable circumstance !
of the whole affair was found in the
culmination of the parade, however.
Just as they were about to disperse and
haul their cotton back home some of ?
them aa far aa 15 miles, a prominent)
buyer Of this city stepped to the leader
"Good men, I admire your pluck. 11
will take every bale in thia parade at j
10 cents." It was sold, every bale, at
the price named by the planters.
Thus ended one of the most remark
able scenes ever seen in Rome. -

Chief Hammett to Report.
Chief Constable Hammett has boen
visiting those counties, or some of
them, which have been voting out the
dispensary law, and will report today
to tho governor upon the conditions
there as he found them, A? is gen
erally known it hus been thc dceiro of
Gov. Heyward to remove the conta
bles from those counties and to trust
to the good faith of the people in the
counties for the enforcement of the
This was an easy proposition when
isolated counties voted out the dispen
sary, but where counties in groups
have done away with tho institution,
it makes the problem a difficult one,
especially where there are so many
counties on the border contiguous to
each other, as is tho case with Lan
caster, York and Cherokee in one
straight line, and Marlboro, Marion
and Horry in another, with these two
groups divided only by Chesterfield
county, which is prospectively a
Union also is contiguous to York and
to Cherokee, and Newberry is conti
guous to Union, and to Greenwood.
One may start at the Georgia line
and traverse the entire State of South
Carolina to North Carolina without
leaving prohibition territory, and with
the exception of Spartanburg, Green
ville, Coonee and Chesterfield all of
tho counties bordering on North
Carolina have' voted out the dis
pensary and perhaps every oue of
the four named will do the same
This then will make a condition to
be faced by Gov. "Hoy ward and his fu
ture attitude perhaps will depend in
largo measure upon the report of Mr.
Hammett today.-Columbia State Oct.

He waa taken siok Sunday and lingered
until about three o'clock Friday after
noon when'God called him and ho

world, that is beyond all toil and care.
His death was a great shock to a great

he Waa dead. He was laid to rest in
