Thursday was the fiftieth anniver

forti and batteries in Charleston har
bor on Fort Sumter, which surren
dered two days later. As a boy, the
editor of The Times and Democrat
witnessed the greater part of this
memorable battle from the battery
in Charleston, in which city he lived
during the entire war.
The Times and Democrat intended
no olfence to any one by saying Mr.
Fricay would make a good run for
the Legislature. Nor did we make
the suggestion on behalf of Mr. Dlb
ble'is friends, as we are not author
ized to speak for them. We simply
mentioned Mr. Friday in connection
with the Legislature because we
heard that he would probably be a
candidate for a seat in that body.

The female teachers in New York
have won their fight and will receive

She is being emancipated from her
abominable slavery and she is mak

works by the side of man.
Robbing Cotton Farmers.
The New Orleans Cotton Exchange
charges that a combine on tho part
of the jute bagging and cotton tie in
terests are being fOTmed.for the pur
pose of further robbing the cotton
farmer by raising the tariff duty on
these articles, and calls on Cougres;?
to put them on the free list. This
the Democrats in the House has done,
and it is to be hoped that they will
be enabled to enact it into law.
It is changed by the Exchange that
with a cotton crop of twelve million
bales, a yearly toll of approximately
a million dollars is paid by the farm
ers to the government and to the
bagging and tie trusts. That tha tr.
| riff is almost prohibitive, is indic.'itfll
by the fact that no ties are imported,
and that the tariff on imported bag
>ging yields only ?.l00,000 to the gov
ernment. The remainder of the mil
lion, or about $900,0 .,0 is the contri
bution of the southern farmers each
year to the bagging and tie interes-s
of the nation, brought about by the
high tariff allowed under the Repub
These facts are admitted, but it
is claimed tha* the trusts are not

Is a combination among the bigging
and tie manufacturers of the country
to have increased the duties on these
articles, so as not only to make the
tariff absolutely prohibitive, but to
allow an even higher price to he
charged the farmers for these neces
sary articles of cotton poduction. In
this way. the toll levied upon the
southern farmer by the bagging and
tie interests will be heavier and great
er than ever before.
The Greenville News says "in ad
dition to the present condition of the
tariff, and the alleged future state of
things^ unless the action is fore
staged', there is the added injustice
of iscrimination between southern
and western farmers, to the misfor
tune of former class of agriculturists.
Binder twine, which is a great factor
in the wheat and other grain crops
of the western fields, Is on the free
list, and consequently the western
farmer, whose principal crops are
those which are bound with twine, is
free from the toil to the trusts."
On the other hand, the Southern
cotton farmer, whose largest crop is
that which must be bound in bagging
and ties, pays heavy tolls on both
jute bagging and cotton ties. This
discimination is made in favor of the
Western farmer because he votes the
Republican ticket while the Southern
farmer votes the Democratic ticket.
It is time the plundering of the
Southern farmer for the benefit of
the trusts should cease, and we hope
, the present congress will be patriotic
j enough to do it.
The Lorimer Tragedy.
"Michael Lick, who was indicted
for perjury in the Lorimer case and
turned State's evidence, was found
dead Tuesday. Apoplexy killed him.
He had expected death, arranged his
affairs for it, warned his friends.
There can be little doubt that his
connection with the scandal of Lori
mer had shortened his lite. In com
menting on the- Lorimer tragedy as
it calls It, the New York World says:
"It is useless, the attempt to take a
flight on flippant view of this matter.
It is a ghastly tragedy of Amencan
politics. Link lies dead of it. With
the $2,500 that he deposited to his
credit in Chicago, Holstlaw accepted

which he holds. Is it good enough?

Bryan Was Right.
Under the above caption, the York
ville Enquirer says: "In a coruro
versy between men like Mr. Bryan
and Mr. Bailey, especially in such a
matter as the selection of a leader
of the large democratic minority in
the senate during the present crucial
perio'"., we are unreservedly with Mr.
Bryan. Mr. Bryan is a great anu
able man< beyond question, and al
though only a private citizen is far
more representative cf the democrats
of the nation or even of Texas than
Mr. Bailey. Mr. Bailey and hi*? kino
have won in the present instance,
temporarily at least; but unless
things go Mi. Bryan's way, as conr

next few months, the democrat wili

of retaining domination even of the
house of representatives. Tw'.st and

is right, and what is more, the people
of the country are looking to Bryan
