Washington, Dec. 31.-Thoug
Washington has been off the map ti
adjo,urnent'of Congress for the hol
days,and few men of prominence hav
been here, some interesting gossip h
been afloat concerning the electic
of a successor to Senator Latime
when his term of office shall have e:
pired in March 1909. 'From preset
indications the summer of 1908 wi
see a whirlwind campaign on i
South Carolina, one that will mal
t4t of 1902 look tame.
It is known that a caulcus was hel
recently among a large number <
prominent politicians who have bee
figuring strongly on preventing th
return of Senator Latimer to the ul
per house of Congress. These men ai
accredited to various sections of tli
State, two beng from Wateree se(
tion, one from Spartanburg and fot
from Greenville. The result of th
meeting showed beyond dispute thi
at least seven men in the State way
to become the successor of Senat<
Latimer as the colleague of Senat<
Greenville, it seems, will cut dow
her number of aspii'ants from fou
to one and one of the middle counti
candidates will fall out, and with tl
Spartanburg man the three will prol
ably make the fight against Senat<
The men who have been mentione
as the next junior Senator fro:
South Carolina are from all walks <
Rife,-farmers, merchants, Iawyer
cotton mill men, and other lines.
Another matter that nas practicall
been decided updn by the men -w1
are opposed to the reelection of .eni
tor Latimer is to cut down to tl
smallest degree the number of cand
dates, and this they will do, it is ut
derstood, though some who wish dea
ly for the scat in the senate may I
sacrificed in the attempt.
It is not. improbable, after all, thl
Senlator Latiler's opponents ror r
election narrow down to one candidal
from Spartanburg an( one from ti
middle section. both of whom are poi,
.ular with the ra,k and file voters 1
the State and are politicians of a hig
>order. The race looks interestii
even at this distance.

PURE FOOD LAWS.
Stat e %gisation Urged-NOcMary
to Make *Ltionaa Masures Ef
Washington, December 31.-Many
sfates of the Union are rapidly fall
ing into line and are instructing their
h Legislatures that will meet this win
ter to etiact pure food laws in co
operation with the national laws.
e This step is necessary for the rea
ason that many people yho formerly
n looked upon the passage of the na
tional food law favorably believing
that it wquld prove a boon -to surfer
t ing humanity, are awakening to th<
11 fact that they are not to receive all
n the blessings once contemplated. Tle
e law passed by congress at its last ses
sion has control of and reaches out
to handle only Inter-State shipments.
That has left a loophole through
which many unscrupulous manufac
e turers of food products are crowding
their States and their customers with
impure goods, which would not, irn
.e many cases, pass the vigilant eye of
a government inspector.
So long as the output of the packing
s house, the bake shop and other manu
t factories where food supplies are
t made for the eighty millions of peo
r pe inl the United Sattes (o not cross
the border line of a state, shirewd
manufacturers are not hesitating tc
a palm off within state lines much of
n their worthless and unsalcable pro
e State food inspection as pointed
y out by the department of Agriculture
ir must within a short time raise the
:price of every-day commodities as
d bread, meat, etc., to such a degre<
n that manufacturers will be puzzled at
f how to meet the situation and yet noi
raise the price of their goods out o.
all proportion to former prices. This
y feature of the State inspection law
0 is appealing in unmistakable terms
to coitAimers all over tile country whc
e see in higher taxation for manufac
. turers higher prices to themselves foi
. what they consume.
State and minicipalities that have
ie thought it, wise to co-operate with the
Departmenti of Agriculture in the el
t forcement of the pure food law and
- to enlact withinl their limits, laws t1hai
,e would ensuire the maximum of pur<
e food products, filld n general clamoi
. from manufncturers, wholesalers, and
n even from many retail merchants tc
h leave the law alone and not to place
inspectors out under state and m1un:
cipal control, the cost of which in the
end, would. have to be borne by the
consumer. Thicy are begging piteously
that their business be left unmolested
They maintain that consumers every
where are erying robbery and tliat
already being saddled with taxatior
as the result of the enirorcement Ot
the national food law, they should not
have heaped upon them more expense:
which must be added to the price oi
their goods and p)aid eventually by
the people who eat .them.
5 .Those States that will, when their
s Legislatures meet this winter, endea
,vor to enact legislation looking to the
Senforcement of State food law~s under
.police powers will find 110 small
ri amount of op)position to the movement.
a Lobbyists have already commenced to
. ply their trade~ with the very effective
y. argument that more laws will mean
kmore inspection, and that more in
e specction will mean higher prices.
s Any interrup)tion wvhile he wvas mak
e ing a speech, always caused Richard
.. Brinsley Sheridan considerable an
t. noyance. On one occaision the, dram
at aist showed his displeasure of a fel
I how member of the house of commons
.. who kept crying out ''Hear, hear''
I every few minutes. During a certain
debate Sheridan took occasion to de
scribe a political contemporary wh'o
wished to play rogue, but had only
t sense enough to act fool. ''Where,''
, exclaimed .he, with great emphasis
.. ''Where shal,we find at more foolish
a knave or a more knavish fool than
."'Hear, hear,'' was shouted by the
Sheridan turned and, thanking the
hionorable member for the prompt in
formation, sat down amid a general
roar of laughter.
