HOD. Cole L lilcase, 'Senator from
"Newberry Ct unty, has announced
himself a candidate for Governor of
South Carolina. No doubt be believes
in thc? old adage, 'the ?arly bird
catches the worm."
With or withou; immigration land
-values in the South have been steadily

Hut much of the .best land is still

a mau with a small capital Vtbo knows
a good investment when lie sees it.
The origin of the phrase ''easy
money" is revealed by the insurance
exposures. Ono company loaned mon

An 'seociated Press dispatch from
New York, undcr-dato of the Gth inst.,
reportB J. H. Iloadley, the leader of thc
recent hull movement in cotton, as say
ing thp*. he was at last certain that
praoti jelly all tho Southern planters
wouJ'i bold tbeir?cotton for 15 centB.
Mr. Hoadley formed a pool topurobaso
cotton at that prico and he said that
this pool has secured control of the
output. "March options will go to
17 or 18 cents, I believe," said Mr.
Hoadlcy, "because wo have pretty
nearly got tho March crop cornered."
If Mr. Hoadley's ? predictions prove
correct be will surely have the good

The 1*91 isBue of the Southcru
Field, published at Athens, Qa., and
edited by T. L?arry Gantt, contains a
very complimentary notice of Ander;
son and ber wonderful development in
thc past year or two. The anide
winde up by saying: "Anderson is
one of the most progressive oountiea
in the South, and the city of Ander
son is a gem. The editor of this paper
visited Anderson about eighteen
mouths ago, and was charmed with
tho place and its people. Both that
county and city are shining examples
of the New South. The Southern
Field, at some future time, intends to
write np tb it section, and use it as an
object lesson ?or other Southern coun
ties and cities. Mr. Gantt could not
.find a better field or better Bubjeot
than Anderson to use as an objeot ion
eon in his write up, and if ho will
only let ua know io advance when he
is coming hero we will see that he is
plaoed in the hands of the Chamber
of Gommeroe Press Committee and
properly entertained and oared for.
There is considerable discussion
being indulged in just now by the
press of the State in reference to the
assessment of real estate, and it will
no doubt result in great benefit to
South Carolina. In a recent inter
view in Columbia Comptroller-General
Jones said that most of the objections
that he has. thus far encountered in
connection with his efforts to haye all
disses of property in the State as
sessed/at full market value has been
on account of the three-mill consti
tutional tax. , Ho says that he haB
fully considered this phase of the
question and that it i J bis firm con
viction that this is not s real objec
tion. Ho finds that in practically
every township in the State there is
either a special or a bond tax, and
that this three-mill tax will just about
balanoe the special levies. He has
goae to the trouble of figuring on tho
increased assessment, and has found
that in the counties on which he baa
figured the Bpeoial levies will bc about
covered by the three mill tax and
that if the three-mill tax raises
an amount equivalent to the speaial
school taxes, then there is no need for
tbs Speoial levies, and thu. it ia about
as broad as it is long. Mr. Jones haB
received a gi?at many letters assuring
bim of co-operation in bis efforts to
bave the assessments of - tbs State np
to full value, ?nd he thinks that bo is
going to .meet with less opposition
than was anticipated. He feels satis*

The information conies from Wash
ington that the beginning of the new
year finds "Uncle Sam" in the best
of humor. His revenues have in
creased lo a record-breaking extent
and the expenditures have markedly
decreased. It is the belief of treas
ury officials that were it not for the
Panama canal construction the deficit
in the treasury would be entirely
wiped out. It was $21,000,000 <J? tho
first of last July. It s Und s now at
less than $9,000,000.

Tho nnnuni session of tho general

adopted by tho people but its validity
Biennial sessions is a subject which
has been agitated in this State for a
number of years, and it will bereen
that it is not yet settled. -But thero
aro other "stock" issues which will come
np again, and not the least of these is
the-dispensary. Time after tho fight
has been made on the dispensary, and
each time until now with odds against
the dispensary opponents time. It it
different now, the unti-dispeusury peo
ple have the light in theirown h indsuud
at all depends on whether or not they
will make tho most of their opportu
nity. At tbe last nession it was ovi
dentthat the house was not for the
dispensary and the Senate leaned to
wards the institution by only a small
majority. This majority may have
chunged since the last session, in that
senators whose counties have within
the year ?oted nguioBt the dispensary
may con 1er that vote equivalent to
instructions to vote tho same way in
the Senate. But tho dispensary is
lighting tor its life; its staunchest
friends aro righting tor their political
lives, and more, and it nil depends on
tho good or the bad generalship of
Other familiar measures will be de
bated in tho same familiar way. There
will bo the compulsory education tight,
tho taxation problem, the reformatory
bill, the tight on the tag tax and the
Clemson appropriation, and perhaps
oven tho dog tax.
But above all else there will much
political strategy among those in and
out of tho .Legislature who expect to
be in the campaign next summer.
Candidates tor every of M cc in the State
House will watch and work if not
pray, and tho tone of tho summer can
vass of the counties will be virtually
fixed at this session. The result of tho
light over the dispensary will have
much to do with the campaign for gov
ernor, and may even decide who shall
