In the present Congress the Repub
lican majority is overwhelming and
the divisions hctween differont groups
of Republicans arc as marked as thoso
which oxist between Republicans and
Democrats. There is, thereforo,
every reason to expeot friction in
each attempt to drive through by tho
Recd rules legislation to which anv
considerable nulabor of the majority
are radically opposed.
It is quite probable that farming
lands will now greatly inoroase in
value. The high prioo of cotton has
somewhat demoralized the cotton
manufacturing industry ia some sec
tions, while, on the other hand, it has
rendered farming moro profitable.
This is causing many white people to
leave the towns and cities to take up
their abode sgsin on the farms. The
rehabilitation of the rural distrlots is
the crying need of the dav.
The Supreme Court has issued
another injunction. This time it is
to keep tho dispensary in Williams
burg County open. This rodees the
list of "kept open by order of the Su
preme Court/' Sp ar ton burg, Green
ville, Anderson and now Williams
burg, und next will come Edgefield
and Saluda. If there used to be one
thing Senator Tillman "oassed" it
waa government by injunction, but
thai seems to be tbs only stay of the
dispensaryites just nowt very truly re
marks one of our exchanges.
In tho new Congress the Repub
lican .majority is so grest that it may
prove un-eidly. The president and
the Speaker of the Hcase sees confi
dent of holding down the lid and car
rying through their out-and-dried pro
t gramme of legislation. Perhaps they
may, Jut as the Democrats have bare
ly more than a third of the member
ship of the House, and that third al
most all from the South, there seems
ample soope for differences of opinion
and of interest to ss?@?t ibsssse'ves
. among the majority.
Io settling the pay rollo and ex
pense accounts ether militia called
iatossrvioe during the yellow fever
epidemio of last summer, Arksnsss
finds that these items of the Stste
quarantine amount to about ?36,000,
which ia lesB than the corresponding
items for any other State that estab
lished quarantine. If the Federal
Government takes charge of inter-,
state quarantine, as requested by the
Chattanooga convention, this expense
will be spared the States, and State
lines will be as effectively guarded

The Belton Postmastership.
It seems that Distinct Attorney
Capers pets tho belter of Senator Lati
mer ns to the Helton postol?ke but
tho chunco threatens trouble io other
county oo?toJlices. The Columbia
correspondent ul' the y ?WB and Cou
rier, under date ot'th? . ."tl* inst., re
fers to the matter as follows:
According to a gentleman ?rc;?i
Greenville the nomination of Carroll
Itrown lor the postmastership at Hel
ton has pal un end to un interesting
little row between Senator Latimer
und District Attorney Capers.
It seems that some time ago Capero
had ono of thc inspectors to examine
the nfi'uirs of the Bolton ollice, then
under tito charge or J. E. Hor'.on.
There was nothing wrong with tho
ellice, but tho inspector reported that
Horton's sons were doing most of tho
work, a tiling not unusual in tho
country postofficea. Capers then
wrote Senator Latimer, mat i MK that
Horton would be removed, and said
that ns Helton was the homo towu of
Latimer, he would be allowed to sug
gest any ono he eaw lit for the oflico.
If there was politic? in tho suggestion
it failed to work, for SonatorfLatimer
announced that bu would stand by
Horton and endonvor to have him re
As a counter proposition Capers
suggesUid Carroll Brown who
who is a rein', ve of Senator
Latimer by marriage. Even f his idea
did not snit tho Sec;:;ter and he etUl
Btnck to Horton.
The influence of Capers, however,
waa too strong, and Brown was ap
pointed, and bis confirmation will be
announced in a few dava. Juet what
the South Carolina delegation will do
about the matter ie not known. Thoy
are all aware that in one-half of
the small ofiiceB the relative? of the
postmaster usually help in the work
of the office, and in many instances do
all of the work. They do not want
tho poatofflce inspectora to remove
these men, and necessitate work and
trouble io their districts. They will
probably let the matter drop, how
ever, and wait for developments that

With no clothing, no home, no bread ?

To smooth the pillow of death;
To oomfoit the sorrow-stricken,
And strengthen the feeble faith ?
And haye ye folt when the glory
Has streamed through th* o: on door,
And flitted across the ahadows,
That I had been there before ?
Have ye wept with the broken hearted
In their agony of woe ?
Ye might bear me whispering beside yon,
