shaken with Internal discord that no

The Rev. John Haynes Holme*,
pastor of the Unitarian Church of
the Messiah in New York, must be all
sorts of an ass. At a recent, meet
ing of the National Association for
tho Advancement of the Colored Peo
ple, he said, "The time has come
when the North must do its duty and
save the South again. The negro
now more than ever is entitled to his
freedom, and a battle for liberty must
be fought over again." Holmes is
evidently a rare specimen. He should

History Will Bepeas Itself.
The Hon. James Smith, Jr., bos*
of Essex County, New Jersey, at the
recent election in that State, tried to
kill off Woodrow Wilson by sending
a Republican delegation to the legis
lature from his county, thus giving
the Republicans a majority in that
body. Smith was sent to the United
Staites Senate some year* ago, when
New Jersey was knowD as the mother
of trusts. The trusts took up the
Republican party, and Smith having
labelled himEelf a Democrat, the
trusts refused to continue him in the
Senate, so. he became the Democratic
boss of the State, and helped the Re
publicans elect trust men to the Sen
Smith mada the Democrats of New
Jersey an annex to the Republican
! trust machine of the State, for which
he was well paid as a sugar trust at
torney. This was the status of poli
tics, when Woodrow Wilson came
along and swept the State into the
Democratic volnmn. To the great
surpriee of Smith the Democrats car
ried the legislature when they elected
Wilson governor. Then Smith want
ed to be elected to the United States
Senate, but Wilson said nay, and in
tisted that Martine, a. real true blue
Democrat, be elected to the Senate,
which the legislature did when it
Then Smith and his henchmen de
;termined to do Wilson and the real
j Democratic party all the harm they
could. Their first chance came in the
recent election. He determined to
throw his influence to the Republican
party and help them elect their can
didates to the legislature, and thus
enable the Republicans to capture
that body. The defeat of the Demo
cratic candidates is recognized as a
Smith victory. By giving his infiu?
ence to the Republicans, he has
robbed Go von or Wilson of tho sup
port of a Democratic legislature, hut
otherwise the result did not hurt Gov
"But," as the Spartanburg Herald
says, "Smith will be fortunate if his
'triumph' deeii not provt a boom
erang. The people know more about
Now Jersey politics in tho past year
than they had learned sine* the civil1
war, and the people ex* doing ?. little
thinking for themselves, as the re
cent elections show. Smith's reputed
object is to prevent Wilson from se
curing th* nomination for the presi
dency next year If possible, his first
step being-ian effort to prevent the
New Jersey delegation from support
ling him, and to make the Impression
I that Wilson is discredited at home.
"In 1892 David B. Hill, bosB of New
York, decreed that Grover Cleveland
should not have the great strength
of Now York's delegation in the
Democratic convention. He succeed
ed In preventing Cleveland's own
State from supporting h'm in the con
vention. But Cleveland got the nom
ination without New York's assist
ance, largely because of Hill's action.
It 1b by no means impossible for
Woodrow Wilson to get the nomina
tion without New Jersey's support, if
that delegation is dominated by
Smith. Smith's opposition is fine
support for all that Is honest and up
right in politics."
Results Point to Harmon.
If the next Democratic Presidential
candidate is to be chosen by the re
sults of the late election in the sev
jeral States the choice would undoubt
jedly fall on Governor Harmon of
j Ohio, as he certainly mor* than held
I his own. In addition to the Demo
cratic victories in ColumbuB, Cleve?
land and Cincinnati, the three largest
cities In Ohio, another very significant
index of the public pulse in that
State is the result of the election just
held for delegates to a Constitutional
Convention, which is soon to meet.
These delegates were elected from
the same legislative districts as were
the members of the Lower House of
Ohio's General Assembly were elected
last year, when Harmon was elected
Governor for the second time. Last
year the Democrats for the first time
In twenty-one years carried the House
of Representatives. The respective
party Btrength in that booy as re
turned by that election was as fol
The respective party strength in
the new Constitutional Convention as
elected two weeks ago is as follows:
This shows that Ohio Democracy
has made even a better showing in
1911 than the unprecedented victory
of 1910. This result is pretry tough
on President Taft, as it indicates that
'Ohio is ready to transfer her prefer
ence for President from him to Gov
ernor Harmon. That the result of
the election in Ohio strengthens Gov
Jornor Harmon for the Democratic
j nomination is undoubtedly true no
impartial observer will deny.
His ability to hold Ohio in line for
next year can hardly be doubted in
the face of what he has already done
in his native State. Should he be
nominated. Ohio is certain for the
Democratic column. To the grea
for years to come. We are for Wil>
?on as the Democratic candidate for
President, but at the same time we
are free to confess that Governor
Harmon would make a strong candi
date all over the country. He has
to bo reckoned with.
Taft is a Dead Duck.
About the only thing that the late
election definitely settled is that
President Taft will be defeated should
he again he nominated for the Pres
idency by the Republicans1. Cincin
nati, where he lives when he is at
borne, repudiated him by electing a
Democratic city government from
top to bottom, and his Slate, Ohio,
has declared her opposition to him by
electing seventy Democrats to forty
five Republicans to the Constitutional
Convention, which assemble;; soon.
Looked at from a party sta.lpoint the
resultB of the elections produce mixed
feelings In both great parties. De
feat in so? secticn, and consequent
gloom. Is offset by success in some
other section, and corresponding en-'
couragement. Still, one thing stands
out clearly, which is that within and
without party ranks the independent
voter is coming more and more to
the front. This does not necessarily
mean an actual lessening of party loy
alty or of the party system. But it
does mean that voters think more
than they used to and that with a
higher moral sense they demand not
only able men but able men of clean
life and superiority to boss dictation
and political temptations. And mat
way lies the permanence of popular
institutions and representative gov

Gasoline Being Sold by Oil Companies
A diepatch from Walterboro says
Mrs. Ellen Drlggers, wife of James
Drivers, was burned to death at
their home there Sunday morning.
Mrs. Drivers had risen to cook
breakfast and had attempted to start
fire in the stove. This did not catch
as quickly as she washed, and getting
the kerosene oil can she poured come
of its contents into the fixe box of the
stove. Instantly there was a terrific
explosion and Mrs. Driggers was cow
ered with the burning oil from head
to fool and envelosed In flames.
Hor screams asouaed her husband,
who hod not yet risen, and he rushed
into the room. He attempted to ex
tinguish the flames, but to no avail.
Every etitch of Nothing was burned
from her body. Dr. Rid<dick Acker
man was summoned, but could do
nothing but place the suffering wo
man under the influence of an opiate.
She lingered till four o'clock in the
afternoon, when she died. It seems
that a terrible mistake was made by
'the oil company from which this oil
was purchased. ,
It was sold Saturday afternoon by
W. O. Mims, and taken from a barrel
supposed to contain kerosene oil. It
was billed as such, and. was so lab
eled, but an investigation of the con
| tents revealed that it was filled with
gasoline instead . of kerosene. No
blame attaches to Mr. iMlms on ac
count of this. As soon as he found
that it was gasoline he hurriedly
ealled up every one who Pad pnr*
chased of the oil and had it returned
This is the second case or this kind
that we have heard of in the last few
months. In tho -other case the gaso
line exploded and, killed a yonng ne
gro boy. Gasoline is a very danger
ous explosive, and it is criminal to
substitute it for kerosene. People
who sell kerosene should be sure that
the parties from whom they buy are
not substituting gasoline for kero
sene, and people using kerosene
Ehould be sure that their dealers give
them kerosene and not gasoline. In
both of the cases mentioned above the
retail dealers sold what had been sold
to them for kerosene oil.
