FRIDAY, JUNE io.
Congressman Lever says in an in
terview with the Evening Telegram
when in Newberry the other day that
he.was an original Parker man for the
democratic nomination for the pres
idency. and that none of the South
Carolina members in Congress were
ever for Hearst. We believe South
Carolina favors Parker. but does so
because it is supposed he is the most
available man for the place and the
one most likely to win. provided of
course he is a good democrat. Mr.
Parker has that record. though there
are some good people even in South
Carolina who are not enthusiastic
Parker men because they think Mr.
Parker is too near Cleveland and they
do not endorse Mr. Cleveland. We
do not share in that opinion because
but. for the fact that Mr. Cleveland
has been three times nominated and
twice elected we should be glad to
see him nominated. He is among the
greatest living Americans today. The
democratic party has its opportunity
this year. There is only one thing to
do and that is for all good democrats
to unite on the nomminees and plat
form and give their loyal support and
victory will be the result.
The commencement season is about
over. The young men and young wo
men all over this land who have fin
ished will now step out on the larger
arena of actual life. In this field con
test the metal must stand its own test.
If there is merit or genius and it is
properly drected it will come to the
front. As the world counts succe'ss
the great majority fail of its attain
ment. But there can be no failure
if the true purpose of life is kept as
the ideal to which you are striving
to do good and serve, and make the
world better by your having lived in
The Small Farmer.
What the state needs now more
than any other one thing is to have
the small farmer the owner of his
own farm and no: -a tenant of the lar
ger land owner. It makes better citi
zens and arouses a greater love of
country. When every man owns his
own home- he has more reason to be!
and is more interested in making it in
reality a home. The greatest mence that
could corne to our' institutions would
be the land going into the hands of a
few and the great mass of our people
becoming tenants. The large land
owners would do themselves a ser
vice and also a service to their coun
try if they would encourage the small
farmer to become his own home own
er and then further encourage him
to make that home attractive ,and
pleasant and in reality a home. This!
will go a long way towards making
*country life more attractive and de
sirable and will stop that desire to
move to town. The home owner,
naturally, will be more interested in
building up a good school in his com
munity and having the advantages of
the church. He will take a greater in
terest in the building and irr.prove
ment of the public roads. and these
after all will have more to do with
building up the community than any
other one thing. Good roads. good
schools, good churches in the country
will all come when our farmers be
come home owners, for then they will
feel a personal interest in the perma
nent upbuilding of the country.
.Columbia has been selected for the
encampment of the militia. Colum
bia is a most delightful place and it
is--.... plesnt there in the spring
and fall but in the summer we should
not select it as a place to spend a
while. If the expense was the con
,ideration it would have saved more
money not to have had an encamp
ment at all.
It is only about one week beiore
the state campaign begins. So fai
the only contest for state pffices is
for railroad commissioner. In one or
two of the congressional districts there
will be opposition to the incumbents.
The most interesting fight will be in
the second district It is stz i on
pretty good authority that in addition
to the enries for the unexpired term of
Congressman Croit. Gov. Jno. C.
Sheppard will be in the race.
Then it is said that MNr. T. G
Croft does not feel under obligations
to step aside for the long term inas
much as the aspirants for the job did
not give him a clear feld for the un
expired term and the probability is he
will be in the race for the full term
It was announced in a dispatch
from Washington yesterday that the
navy deparment had been officially
informed that the sultan of Moroccc
had acceded to the demands of the
banditti who holds Perdicaris, the
American citizen. and Varley. the En
glish subject. and that it was probable
that Perdicaris would soon be re
leased. It was stated that the ransom
demanded by the leader of the ban
ditti was believed to be fifty thousand
dollars. This is rather hard on the
sultan, but if he isn't able to govern
the country he must pay he price.
