Henry Morgan, convieoed of set

The Spartanburg Journal says: "If
Mr. Hearst shall not be nominated for
president by the democratic party he
will at least have achieved the dis
tinction of having had more lies told
on him than any other man in his
tory." That is true, and the men
who are telling them should be asham
ed of themselves.
TwENTY-four persons, including
some of the most prominent citizens,
in Charleston were arrested on Friday
night for riding on the pavements
without" a light and they were all
taken to the guard house in the
"Black Maria"--some of them pro
testing strenuously against the in
dignity. Small fines were imposed.
The Columbia State in speaking of
a police chaoge in Greenville says:
"Greenville has lost a good official by
the retirement of Chief of Police R.
H. Kennedy. He was the best chief
of police in South Carolina?the dis
pensary law and the laws against gam
bling have been enforced in Green-]
ville." His enforcement of the laws
may account for his removal.
The Knoxvllle Sentinel says: "Mr.
Cleveland used some of his character
istically plain language in branding as
a falsehood Tom Watson's statement
to the effect that he had dined Fred
Douglass. The old man hasn't for
gotten how to write." The trouble
is Mr. Watson comes again and gives
his authority for his statements,
?which will necessitate more than plain
language to disprove.
The Columbia Record says: "Our I
esteemed friend, the Columbia corres
pondent of the News and Courier, has |
made a political discovery which is an
nounced on the first page of the News
and Courier Monday morning. It will j
he somewhat startling to the Demo
crats in the state, but it is stated that
there has been found a growing de
mand in this state for the nomination i
of Grover Cleveland."
How About Douglass' Book?
The Greenville News says:. "Mr.
Cleveland has again denied the slan
derous story that he invited Fred
Douglass, the negro, to his wedding
reception at the White House. The
enemies of the former President have
persistently tried to poison the South
ern mind against him, but it is low
and contemptible, and those of us
who admire the statesman know that
he was not the kind to celebrate at a
mixed feast." What has the News
and other papers of its way of think
ing to say about Fred Douglass' book'?
In that book Douglass says that white
his false friends of both colors were
! reproaching him because he had re
cently married a white wife Mr. Cleve
; land singled him out for special at
teniions. What these attentions were
he proceeds to state. He says that
Mr. Cleveland never failed to invite
1 him and his wife to all of the grand
receptions, and Douglass says that
"myself and my wife never failed tc
: attend them." At these receptions
Douglass states that Mr. Cleveland
showed to himself and "Mrs. Doug
lass" a bearing "not less cordial anc
' courteous than that extended to the
other ladies and gentlemen present.'
Douglass calls this conduct of Mr.
Cleveland a "manly defiance by a
Democratic president of the malig
nant and time-honored prejudice.'1
Again, to show more clearly how
Douglass understood the true meaning
of Mr. Cleveland's conduct, the negrc
goes on to say that the cordial and
courteous treatment accorded him and
"Mr3. Douglass" by Mr. and Mis.
Cleveland was extended while he was
"surrounded by distinguished men
and women from all parts of the coun
try, and by diplomatic representatives
from all parts of the w?frld, and under
the gaze of the late slaveholders."
Now, as Mr. Watson says, if there ever
was anything clear in a book it is
clear that in this book Fred Douglass
meant to give Mr. Cleveland credit
and praise for defying malignant pre
judice on the social equality question,
and for treating himself and "Mrs.
Douglass" as social equals in the pres
ence of the representatives of the
white race throughout the world.
What made this "manly defiance of
malignant prejudice" the more exqui
sitely gratifying to the negro was
thai it was done "under the gaze of
the late slave-owners." In other
words, Fred says, in effect, that
Southern ladies and gentlemen were
present and were compelled to wit
ness in silence the social triumph of
himself and "Mrs. Douglass." What
has Grover to say to this?
The Strenuous Roosevelt.
The State says a reputable Wash
ington correspondent asserts that
President Roosevelt has "on various
occasions dictated newspaper dis
patches about himself, written com
munications for the state department
and sent them to foreign govern
ments without showing them to Mr.
Hay, ordered ships to make demon
strations in foreign waters without
consulting with his secretary of the
navy and done other premature things
not set down as among the duties of
the president of the United States,"
among which was the appropriation of
330,000,000 for pensious without the
consent of congress. In view of this
temperamental tendency of the presi
dent, Collier's Weekly is correct in
saying that the historic divergence of
political thought upon the division of
power between the States and the
federal government has been over
shadowed by the consideration of "a
division far more important and fund
amental"?at least far more impor
tant at this time. "The division of
power between judiciary, legislature
and and executive," says Collier's, "is
a cornerstone of liberty," and "free
government cannot exist without
some division of! these powers." In
commenting on the above The State
says most truly that Theodore Roose
velt is the greatest menace to the con
tinuance of the free form of govern
ment provided for in the constitution,
because he is not content merely to
execute the laws.
Keep the Record Straight.
Recently the Brooklyn Eagle said:
"Twelve years &go Grover Cleveland
carried the common-wealth of Illinois.
The state then spoke for democracy
with no uncertain sound, backing the
credentials of the victor in that year
with a majority of more than 25,000.
Fouk years later it went the other
way, after the fashion of an ava
lanche, giving to McKinley more than
five times the majority placed to the
cradit of his immediate predecessor as
president of the United States. Bryan
ism operated either as an opiate or an
irritant. Whether it chloroformed or
incensed, it had one ultimate, one
net result?it demoralized." The Pub
lic, Louis F. Post's paper, comment
ing upon this statement, says:
"Twelve years ago'?1802; 'four years
later'?1896. Observe the symptomatic
omission of 1894. A truth suppressed.
What is that truth? Turn to your
political almanacs and see. In 1894
before Bryanlsm was beard of, the
democratic delegation in congress
from Illinois was reduced from 11 to
0, and the popular plurality of the
state was changed from 26,993 demo
cratic to 123,427 republican. This
truth is concealed by the Brooklyn!
Eagle for the purpose of suggesting
that democratic demoralization oc
curred in 189G under Bryan's leader
ship and not in 1894 under Cleve
land's. A clear and somewhat aggra
vated case of groverclevelanditis."
The Commoner says the failure of
"Cotton King" DanielJ. Sully fur
nishes another illustration of the un
certainty that hedges about a specu
lative career. Mr. Sully was more
than usually successful, phenomenally
, so, in fact. He became the most con
spicuous cotton operator in the world
and was supposed to have made a
large amount of money?but all at
once he suspends. If be,' with his
wide knowledge of the subject and his
power to inlluence the markets, could
[ not succeed, how can the curb-stone
I brokers and penny speculators hope
i to win? The story of Sully's specta
' cular career has lured thousands and
tens of thousands into gambling in
cotton futures?wiil his failure be a
. warning to as many? It is,a sad com
mentary on American morals that it
. is necessary to make against gambling
the argument that it does not pay.
J That it is not right should be a suffi
cient reason and will be when young
men learn that character and noanhood
1 are of more value than money,

, It has been announced that a negro
, convention is to be held in July for
' the purpose of nominating a negro
I candidate for president. Should such
I a convention be held and a nomina
tion madeand all qualified negro elec
, tors in the different States give the
ticket their solid support, it would
put New York, New Jersey, Connecti
, cut, Indiana and some other States
. in the Democratic column, for the
negroes in those states, who hold the
. balance of power, always vote the Re
, publican ticket. A negro ticket sup
ported by negroes would be forcical in
some respects, but since the colored
brother has the franchise, if he should
support the ticket it would mean the
inevitable defeat of President Roose
velt. The managers of the Republi
can campaign have enough resources
to prevent such a party disaster. The
scheme properly handled could be
made to pay a handsome dividend.

We have received the following
from the division of vital statistics of
the department of commerce and la
"Few social questions are asked
more frequently than, what is the in
crease of crime? The national census
bureau is seeking an answer to this
inquiry. It is undertaking to secure
a record of all the persons who are
sentenced to the various jails, peni
tentiaries and other prisons during
the year 1904. "The wardens of the
state prisons and the sheriffs of the
counties are being requested to act as
special agents to report certain facts
concerning every person delivered
into their custody. Some counties have
not been heard from. In some, per
haps, there arc no jails; in others,
perhaps, the local jails are no longer
used; in still others the sheriff have
possibly neglected the matter. But
the records of the census bureau and
the resulting statistics will not be
complete until all are heard from, and
it is hoped that the pressure of other
business wil1 ^ot cause the sheriff of
any county U block this most impor
tant inquiry." We trust that all
South Carolina officials will comply
with this request. Such statistics are
matters of general public interest and
are of much importance in show
ing the people their actual con
dition as to the number of crimes com
mitted within their state boundaries.

A Card from Sheriff Dukes.
It is being^ currently reported, so I
am informed, that I, as Sheriir, have
refused to allow the Cotton Weighers
to use a portion of the jail yard for a
cotton platform on which to weigh
cotton. This incorrectly states my
position. Personally I have nooojec
tion to using the yard, or a portion of
it, for weighing cotton, but the law
requires the cotton weighers to furnish
their own platforms, and I am advised
by gool lawyers that I have no power
or discretion to permit the use of the
yard for weighing cotton. In other
words, it is not left to me. If the
weighers can get proper legal sanction
for such use through recommendation
of the grand jury, and an order from
the Circuit Judge authorizing me to
allow such use to be made of a portion
of the yard, I am more than willing.
I only wish to keep within the law,
and be protected as far as my bond is
concerned. So let it be plainly under
stood that I have no objection to a
portion of the jail yard being used for
a cotton platform or for a wagon yard.

more for stock than J. M. Way's Horse

harmless and mild. It acts on the
kidneys, purifies the blood; loosens up
the hide, causes them to digest their
food and rids them of botts, grubs and
all other worms of different speeies
that stock is plagued with. It tones
up and vigorates tbe animal, and
causes them to gain in flesh from 2 to
4 pounds per day.
I advise all stock owners to keep a
supply on hand and give it to their
stock. Tlit re is no risk in doing so.

Wait a Minute!!
Only a few minutes inspection by
those interested in the purchase of a
high grade vehicle is necessary to con
vince them of the advantage in pur
chasing from me.
A car-load of "Rock Hill" buggies
just received, representing all styles
of this progressive company's .goods.
The "Wrenn" wire wheel "Run
abouts," Surries," Phaetons," etc., are
always on hand in all styles, and the
fact that there are over one hundred
of them in use throughout the county,,
giving excellent satisfaction in every
case, is within itself significant of the
excellence of this now fambus line of
work built by a Southern company.
"Columbus," "Studabaker," "Sum
mers, Barnesville," are all names
which speak for themselves wheie
an idealvehiclc is wanted.
It costs but little more to buy a
standard grade vehicle than the cheap
Western product which in every case
proves unsatisfactory: so why not buy
The most complete and expensive
line of high grade work ever offered by
an Orangeburg house to the public is '
now to be seen here.
The public is cordially invited to
call and inspect. L. E. Riley.
