Lorimer is on the rack onco more,
and we believe this time, he will he
made to valk the plank.
Mr. Brys-n eays the Republicans
are in office but not in power. While
they draw the salaries, the Democrats
furnish tie policies that are being
carried act. ? .
-Andrew Carnegie thinks that all
the fuss and ' feathers over the
coronation of King George of Eng
land Is a roaring farce. We rather
agree with the old gentleman.
If we are to judge by the at
tentions pftiid Mr. Bryan In the differ
ent towns in South "Carolina during
his recent visit to them, we would
say he is shout as popular as ever.
We predict that Senator Bailey of
Texas, will be defeated in his race for
re-eiectlori to the Senate and will re
move to New York and become or
fry to become a grea'. trust lawyer.
The new Lorimer investigators are
threatening to subpoena the entire
membership of the Illinois Legisla
ture which gave him his alleged elec
tion. An exchange says it might be
well for property owners In the vicin
ity of this particular hearing to nail
-all valuable down.
Orangelmrg is indebted to the Hon.
Thos. P. 'Brantley for the handsome
manner In which' he entertained Mr.
Bryan on Ms visit to this city. Mr.
Brantley in* a_ personal friend and
great adrilrer x>f the distinguished
gentleman, and It was a pleasure

In his short political talk Mr.
Bryan proved conclusively that the
Republicans are now trying to enact
into law pedicles that they denounced
when first put in Democratic plat
forms. H<i said it was .becoming a
bard matter for the Democrats to
adopt any policy that the Republicans
would no: Bteal.
The Charlotte Observer tells of a
man In that State under arrest for
beating mi wife with a stick, the
thickness of a fishing rod. Cowhides
do not come in that size, we believe,
but the usual size, In -the hands of
a' stout constable, laid On the bare
back for:y times save one, should
prove an excellent instrument of re
Senator LaFollette's candidacy for
the Republican presidential nomina
tion has, oT course, no prospect what
ever of success. The Charlotte Ob
server says apparently It is designed,
in view o:.' the exposure which has
come upon Insurgent Republican as
sumptions of superior virtue, chiefly
as the only means of establishing
clear distinctions between regular
and insurgent! again.
The N?wberry Observer this week
prints a etfef from Governor Blease
requesting It to stop the paper from
coming tT his office. He states that
he subscribed to the paper because
it was a home paper, hut wishes It
stopped because of recent "dirty"
fllnvs which It has made. The Ob
server says "the governor does not
specifv what he is pleased to call
the "dirty little flings" and we are
at a loss to know what he means;
but it is Immaterial."
That Carrie Nation was a good wo
man with good intentions but of mis
directed zeal is the general verdict. It
goes without saying that the tempta
tion to resort to physical violence to
be rid. of evils is sometimes very
strong. Put such methods are nt.th
er wise or right. It does not to do
to create one evil to destroy another,
nor to break the law that othei peo
ple may keep it. The destruction of
evils will be brought about by better
laws, education and a higher stand
ard of morals.
In hit; speech on the Canadian
reciprocity .bill, Senator Bailey sought
at once to uphold Democratic views
on tariff reduction and to overthrow
the agreement which will carry those
views into effect. In one sentence
he loudly proclaimed his loyalty to
the prineipl'-s of Democracy. In the
next he denounced the practical *\.
plication of a doctrine for which his
party has long stood and striven.
His place is in the Republican party,
where he would be if Teras was a
Many stout hearts that pass
through direct nominations and dir
ect election of senators without a
quiver hesitate at the referendum.
Others go on until they come to the
initiative, at which they balk. When
we get to the recall, there is panic
all along the line, and it is only the
seasoned veterans or the reckless
young enthusiasts that walk up with
out flinching. Yet these three prin
ciples are the very essence of real
democracy. Without them there
can be no rule of the people.
Stand By Your Town.
"Why should I support my own
town?" is a question every one
should put to himself and honestly
consider. The result would be bene
ficial both to *the individual and the
town. Here are a ."ew of the many
reasons he would be sure to find.
The town is his home and a man's
first duty is to his communal home as
well as to his domestic home. Again
local patriotism demands it. Love
for and pride in one's town is the
duty as it should e-er .be the joy of
every citizen, and that patriotism
should find constant expression in
furthering its interests. His town
affords him the protection of its gov
ernment and laws and guards his
property against fire and other losses.
A man should t ade in his town.
Its business men are courteous, will
ing and progressive their stock of
goods is large and varied, and Ir
there is something one wants which
they do not carry they are always
ready to secure it. Unlike catalogue
houses, the home :nerchants help to
pay the taxes of v. town, they con*
tribute to churches, improvements
?and entertainments. Without the
business men the town would stag
nate and property decrease in value.
The schools of a town provide am
ple and satisfactory education for
one's children, and its churches meet
and satisfy his religions needs and
conserve the moral and spiritual in
terests of the comitiunity. Its news
papers keep him informed on local
matters, enlarge his knowledge,
help him in business, minister to his
enjoyment and th&t of his famhy,
?and promote every wise effort put
forth to help the best interests of
Worse than Ball Fighting.
The speed auto races like that held
recently in Indiadapc|ls serve no
good purpose, but rather the reverse.
It is notorious that many of the spec
tators attended because they expect
ed to see any number of accidents.
In all this a morbid curiosity and a
callous indifference to suffering re
vealed itself. It is .a lamentable
fact that betting as to the number
of deaths and other accidents was
freely engaged in and that many
people were greatly disappointed be
cause ,but one man was killed. Such
exhibitions are destitute of true
sport and they have a degrading in
fluence both upon those who partic
ipate In them and those who witness
them. We are in the habit of read
ing long lectures to the Spaniards.
Mexicans and other Latin peoples
about the cruelty and barbarity of
bull fighting In which some of their
people indulge. Sometimes this
cruel sport among them Is attributed
to their decadence as a race.^ We
would like to have the judgment of
these critics on the auto races and
the thirst of blood manisfested by
some who attended them. Does such
barbarities indicate the decadence of
Americans as a race?
George Was Alright.
lAnd now comes the story that
George Washington could on occa*
sions stretch his blanket, and thus
.would the delvers :nto the past shat
ter another fond tradition. Coming
after the assertion that the old gen
gleman would sometimes indulg^/ in
full round oaths, and that he was a
tax dodger, it will all come as a
painful shock to those hero worship
pers who imagined or thought they
did, that Washington was superior to
any human weakness. We do not
believe all that is being said about
the Father of hin Country, but If
they are true sensible and level
headed men and women will not
think any less of :he great and no
ble George Washington. Not that
they approve of moral Infirmities,
but for the reason thaf In spite of
limitations, which all men to some
extent possess, he was so great, so
exalted and so noble, and that his
service to his country and to all
mankind was of so transcendent a
character. George Washington was
a true, unselfish patriot, his great
ness will grow brighter as the years
Improve Your Business.
The way for the business men to
boost the town is to advertise what
they have to sell in the county pa
pers. This will not only boost the
town, but will improve the business
of every merchant that tries it. A
business ebbs or flows, goes up or
down, in proportion as the business
man Ms people know what he has
to sell them. To a?t on the idea that
what people want t hey will come and
seek after, might d.i if all business
men followed it. But the shrewd,
up-to-date business man will not fol
low such fussilized methods, but
through judiciousv attractive and
generous advertsing tells the public
what he has, and the public recipro
cates by trading with him. In truth,
people do not want to bother them
selves with wondering where they
can get an article when the fact can
be brought to their notice through
an advertisement In the local paper.
The Invariable rule is, no advertis
ing, little business; fair advertising,
fair business; generous advertsing,
prosperous busine?s. Why that rule
works out so infallibly 4s clear to
every intelligent mind.

Judge J. F. Allen In speaking to a
jury said "the tir.ie has come when
the good people cf our land should
take a stand, not only for temper
ance, sobriety a;,d suppression of
strong drinks In our community but
to every appearance of evil that Is
known to be harmful, not only to
ourselves, but to our boys. I call
your especial attention to one of the
most dangerous, hurtful and growing
practices known, that of cigarettes
and tobacco smoking. Many of the
inmates of our ^sylums can trace
their loss of memory, manhood and
mind to the early and constant use
of tobacco and cigarettes. I hope
that not only the fathers and mothers
of the boys who are so unfortunate
as to be addicted to this evil prac
tice may be awakened to the enor
mity of this great and growing evil,
but that we may all be aroused to
vigorous action and use every effort
to suppress it, 11 possible, and save
the bright boys of our land against
