-Mr. W. K. Bell and family moved to
Hartsville, Darlington county, last Saturday.
Mr. Bell came here from Darlington eoun

deportment and public spirit merited the

Manning honored Mr. Bell several times by
placing him at the -head of her town govern
ment, and he always proved himself worthy
of the trust reposed in him. It is therefore
to be regretted that we are forced to give up
such a good citizen, and Hartsville or any
other place can be congratulated upon hav
ing such a man to move into their midst.

The past week was a very busy one for the

goods than in any previous week during the
season. Large crowds were in town every
day, attracted by the colored conference,

Rev. W. S. Stokes, the new pastor of the
Methodist church in this place, is expected
to arrive with his family next Friday. Mr.
Stokes is a young man, having been in the
Conference only one year, but he is said to

is a son of Rev. A. J. Stokes, formerly pre
siding elder of this district, and is a grand
son of Dr. Whitefoord Smith, of Wofford
College. Mr. Stokes will preach next Sun

The Colored Conference.
The Columbia Annual Conference of the
African Methodist Church was convened in
its thirteenth session in this town last Wed
nesday, Dee. 3rd, at 9.30 o'clock in the fore
noon. Bishop B. W. Arnett presided, and
Revs. D. H. Johnson, D. T. McDaniel, and
C. S. Bradley were elected secretaries.
Reports from the different stations and
circuits showed a uniform growth spiritual

Sunday morning the new church in this
place was dedicated by the bishop, after
which he preached a sermon from, "The
fool hath said in his heart, there is no God."
The sermon at times approached the sub
lime, and altogether was a good sermon.
Ater the sermon a large class of preachers
who had been in the conference two years
were ordained to deacon's orders, and one
who had served four years was made an
The appointments were read out Sunday
night, and Monday all the..preachers left
for their homes. We heard a number of
them say that they never attended an annu
al conference where they were better enter
tained. Manning is a small town to enter
tain so large a body, more than two hun
dred, but the colored people of this place
did it, and did it well too.
The conference is composed entirely of
colored men, some of whom have won places
of distinction in the different walks of life.
We would have been glad to have pub
lishid full proceedings of this conference,
but were not able to get anything from
them. As far as we cIn learn there were
few or no changes of the preachers in this
county. Rev. E. H. Wilson, who has done
so much towards building tne new church,
is re~turned for another year.
The new church is decidedly the hand
somest in town. Itis finished up nicely and
completely. Inside the walls are plastered
ad it is ceiled overhead. The wood work
is varnished in natural colors. The windows
are finished with stained glass. The church
is painted white on the outsidc.

OUR MANNING MERCHANTS.
Patronize These Merchants that Adver
tise in The Hanning Tines.
A walk around town among our ad
vertisers brings us in contact with a
great many tLings worthy of attention,
and we will endeavor to give our
readers an idea of what they can sell
The first store we enter is that of
SIRES & CHANDLER,
furniture dealers. They have a very
large stock of all kinds and styles of
furniture, bed room, dining and par
lor sets, wardrobes, sideboards, sofas,
center and extension tables, picture
frames, spring mattresses, and mat
tresses of all kinds. They also have
a repairing department conducted by
experienced workmen and all work
entrusted to them will receive prompt
attention. In their undertaking de

who with his usual cleverness invited
us to try one of his fragrant royal

clothing, hats, valises, trunks, shoes,
groceries, crockery, tin and glass ware.
His shelves are packed with goods, as
is also his sample room in the rear of

His trade is rapidly growing, and he
has a nice and well displayed stock
of dry goods, clothing, shoes, harness,
hardware, and cutlery. The grocery
department is a specialty with him,
and having served for many years in
the grocery business he is calcnlated
to give his customers the advantage
of his years of experience iu this line.

medicines of all kinds. Mr. R. B.
Loryea, the junior, is a licensed drug

being a very careful compounder of
prescriptions. These gentlemen in
connection with their first class stock
of medicines carry an elegant assort
ment of toilet goods, perfumery,
combs, brushes, and all kinds of fan
cy goods, also glass, paints, oils, to
bacco, segag, and smokers' articles.
Their stock is neatly arranged and
their patrons receive the most prompt
and polite attention.
Just before reaching the post office
our attention is attracted by a beau
tiful display of millinery goods in the
show windows of
sms. s. 31. CLARKSoN,
and we go inside and find an elegant
assortment of ladies' and children's
hats, caps, ribbons, and all kinds of
fancy articles. This establishment
gives special attention to dress mak-,
ing and persons desiring goods of the
latest fashions will do wvell to call.

B. H. Clover, of Kansas; secretary, J.
H. Turner, of Georgia; treasurer, J.

The election of the executive com

other for one year. Dr. C. WV. Ma

fr three years, therefore he holds
over. J. F. Tillman was elected for a
three year term, and Alonzo Wardall
of Dakota for a short term. Col. Ter

feeling in the Aliiance against an of

A Big Wholesale and Retail House Where
You Can Buy Whatever You Want.
When we read in the daily papers
the dispatches from all parts of the
world announcing the downfall ol
some of the most gigantic commer
cial firms, it makes us stop and reflect
and ppnder over the question, why is
it that such things do not occur in
our midst? and the only conclusion
that we can arrive at is that our mer
chants stand by and watch the move
ments of that old reliable commercial
weather-cock, Aloses Levi.
They watch his movements as does
the captain at the helm of his ship
watch the needle of his compass.
Why? They know that Moses Levi
has always been successful; that he
never does anything withoutifirst giv
ing it mature thought; and that after
reasoning the matter with himself he
then goes to work with such energy
and power as to make opposition or
defeat stand aside and look on with
awe and admiration. It is such a man
as Moses Levi that steers his business
ship safely through the rivers of poor
collections, the rocks of short crops,
the shoals of dishonest customers,
and the ocean of poor prices for pro
duce. It is he who has been in the
mercantile business in Manning for
over thirty years, and his success has
been great, as will be seen by a visit
to his immense establishment.
You enter his store and the friend
ly greeting that is given you by his
polite and attentive clerks makes one
feel at once that he is really in the
house of his friends. His clerks take
charge of you and begin showing you
their goo4s, as one of the rules from
the head of the house is to show
goods whether people buy or not.
THE DELIGHT OF THE LADIES.
In the front of the store on the right
as you enter you find the finest and
best assortment of buttons, gloves,
hosiery, zephyrs, silk floss, thread,
needles, and all kinds of notions and
fancy goods. Then you come to his
shelves of prints, which are only sam
ples of the number of cases in his
wareroom. You find the handsomest
patterns that are made, of all grades
and prices. Next is the dress goods
department, where your taste has an
opportunity of displaying itself, and
we venture the assertion that no store
in the State can show a neater stock
of dress goods than can be found in
this department. Then the ginghams,
flannels, plaids, and cloth -sapartments
present themselves in such lar quan
tities and in such variety that only a
personal inspection would give the
reader an actual insight into the im
mensity and quality of this portion of
In the center of the store you see a
nice lot of carpets, mattings, smyrna
rugs, and oil cloths. These goods
were purchased before the recent ad
vance caused by the McKinley bill,
and they are being sold by him cheap
er than they can be duplicated.
SHOES FOR ALL.
Mr. Levi's pet department is his
shoe stock, and as it is characteristic
of man to have a hubby, Moses Levi
has selected this branch of the busi
ness as his "hobby." He personally
inlspects the purchase of every pair of
shoes that goes into his store, and he
will not allow a shoddy piece of goods
to be palmed off on him. He does
not rely on his years of experience
altogether to assist him in buying
nothing but first-class goods, as he
r-ealizes the fact that in this dlay of
imitations and swindles, experience
must be fortified with a knowledge of
the best places to get the goods. He
therefore makes it a rule to buy his
shoes only by contract, and they must
be manufactured especially for his
trade, and in this manner if a bad
shoe does accidentally slip into his
stock, he notifies the manufacturer
and the cause is looke.d into.
At this store you will find a mag
nificent line of hardware, cutlery, and
all such goods as arec usually found in
regular hardware stores.
He also has a. very large drug de
partment, where he keeps a full sup
ply of all the best patent medicines
and toilet goods.
FOR wHOLESALE TRADE.
In the wholesale department, which
is up stairs, you find stacks of dry
goods, shoes, bats, clothing, blankets,
quilts, trunks and valises, also harness,
whips, bridles, saddles, and girths.
CLOTHING AND FURNISHING GOODs.
You go back down stairs, and in the
clothing, hat, and gen ts' furnishing
department you find the very best
made up clothing, the latest styles of
hats, and the neatest goods of every
thing in the gents' furnishing line.
He can fit you out for business, par
ty, wedding, or funeral.
Then comes his grocery department,
which is a large store within itself.
The housekeeper can supply her pan
try with the choicest groceries, and
with all the finest delicacies of the
season. By purchasing at this store,
a good Christmas dinner is assured
Thbe wareroom attached to this depart
ment is always filled with the very
best flour, fresh and direct from the
mills, meats by the car load, and grain
of all kinds, and within, the past few
days ho has laid .in another car load
of the celebrated ninety-six red rust
proof oats. He has also laid in a
magnificent lot of Christmas hams,
jellies, mincemeat, and other edibles
to supply the demands of his cus
THE QUESTION ANswERED.
After going through this immense.
establishment and witnessing the large
flow of trade from different sections
of the county, the question is at once
answered why suspensions, failures,
and the like do not oocur in our
midst. It is because the -merchant
prince of this place is doing a thor
oughly legitimate business, and does
not allow it to become entangled in
all kinds of wild cat schemes, thereby
keeping his many customers who are
dependent on him for thoir necessary
supplies, in a state of easy content
ment. The conseqnence is he retains
the confidence of the p~eople by his
strict fidelity to business, and at the
same time by the course lie has pur
sued he has accumulated considerable
wealth, and the name of Moses Levi
stands among the highest in the world

BEST HOUSES IN SUMTER. -
Busiiss Houses in Sumter that Ask for
the Clarendon Trade.
At this sason of the year merchants ev
erywhere commence putting on their holi
day airs, and make their stores as attractive
as possible in order to catch the unusually
large Christmas trade.
In walking around in the city of sumter,
we called in at the Brunson House and
Friend Dixon furnished us with a clean
towel, comb, and brush. an-l in a short timie
our toilet was arranged. It being dinner
hour we went into the dining room, and
found a good dinner awaiting us, and we
can say to our friends, if when in Sumter
you want dinner go to the Brunson House.
After dinner we went to the store of Levi
Brothers and there we found a magtLificent
display of everything that goes to make up
a first class store. Their shelves are filled
with all kinds of goods from the cheapest
to the most costly, and their store is ar
ranged beautifully. It reminds one of the
descriptions of oriental bazaars that we
read about in books of foreign travel.
DURANT & BELITZER.
A few doors from them is another sight
worth a trip to Sumter to look at, and that
is the grand display that is oeing made by
DuRant & Belitzer. In that establishment
you can find any and everything In the fur
niture line and at prices that are surpris
H. A. HOYT.
After satisfying your wants in that line,
if you desire to invest in something in
the personal decorative order go to see the
fine display of watches, clocks, earrings,
breastpins, rings, and all other kinds of
jewelry, that is being displayed by H. A.
Hoyt. No one not well versed in these ar
ticles can begin to give a true and proper
description of this stock, Lnd in order for
our readers to folly appreciate it, they will
have to give it a personal inspection.
RYTTENBERG & SONS.
At the store of Ryttenberg & Sons we find
a tremendous stock and a store full of pur
chasers not only from Sumter but a gzeat
many of the purchasers were from Claren
don county. They have traded at this store
before, and know that it is one of the rules
of the house to offer extra inducements to
the Clarendon trade.
O'DONNLL & CO.
Further up the street next to the court
house we found O'Donnell's store, with
hundreds of bales of cotton in front of the
door, and the cleras busy selling goods to
the farmers and Alliance men. This store
some how or other seems to be the Alli
ance headquarters and whenever we go to
Sumter we usually 9l there to meet the
brethren from the different sub-alliances.
Just over the street John Reid is making
tremendous "drives" in dress goods, cloaks,
wraps, and jackets, and now is the time
and Reid's is the rlace to buy such articles

Ex-Governor Richardson's Departure.
Ex-Governor John Peter Richardson left
Columbia yesterdaty afternoon for his old
home in Clarendon county. lie was called
upon before leaving by a large numnber of
ladies and gentlemen who wished to pay
their respects to him as he was about to
It seems like losing one of our old citi
zens to have Governor Richardson go out
from among us. For the past eight years
he has been a resident of our city, having
served two terms as State Treasurer and
two terms as Governor, and during that pe
riod of time he has won a warm place in
the hearts of Columbian;s by the general
affability of his manners and the easiness
with which he could be approached by the
humblest as well as the highest in station,
and in his retirement to private life he will
carry with him the best wishes of the peo
ple of our city.-Columbia Register, Dec. 6.
[From the Port Royal Post.]
Ex-Gov. John Peter Richardson.
Very few Governors of South Carolina, af
ter their terms of office have expired, will
carry into their retirement more kind, de
voted, and affectionate consideration than
will Ex-Governor Richardson.
To a naturally tender, generous, and hu
mane heart, has been added all the quali
ties of temper and disposition which high
social training further elevates and adorns.
No one who during his term of office has
been brought into personal or official com
munication with Governor Richardson has
failed to experience the magnetic influence
which his ingenious presence and address
inevitably inspires. There is a confidence
always felt in his genial, confiding inter
course which it is impossible to resist.
Hence his popularity is and has been im
measurably superior to any of his prede
cessors, not excepting Hampton himself, of
whom he is the peer.
He belongs to a class of patriots and
statesmen that South Carolina can illy afford
to retire, and we trust he will be placed in a
position that his high character and virtues
entitle him to.
We are sure that we but voice the senti
ments of the majority when we say that we
regret the causes that make it a necessity to
change so popular, faithful, and accomplish
ed a Chief Executive after having afforded
so much satisfaction in the two terms he has
served the Commonwealth with honor to
himself and to the illustrious ancestry from
which he comes.
Our best wishes attend Governor Richard
son, who has likewise been a strong person
al friend of ours. He can always count
upon us, and upon a very strong constitu
ency of the low-country, where birth, edu
cation, and the Christian graces are rec om
mendations, to support him in all his future
aims and ambitions.
He deserves the well done of the whole

There's a partent medicine which is not a
patent medicine-paradoxical as that may
sound. It's a discovery ! the golden dJiscov
ery of medical science ! It's the medicine
f.>r you-tired, run-down, exhausted, nerve
wasted men and women; for you sufferers
from diseases of skin or scalp, liver or
lungs-it's chance is with every one, It's
season always, because it aims to pu.-ify the
fountain of life-the blood-upon which all
such desease3 depend. The medicine is Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. The
makers of it have enough con fidence in it to
sell it on trial. That is-you can get it from
your druggist, and if it doesn't do what itis
claimed to do, you can get your money back,
every cene of it.
That's what the makers call taking the risk
of their words.
Tiny, little, sugar-coated granules, are
what Dr. Pierce's Pleauant Pellets are. The
best liver pills ever invented; active, yet
mild in operation; cure sick and billions
headaches. One a dose.
A Fiendish Negro's Body Burned.
GREENvILLEx, Dec. 4.-The body of Henry

bullets near Central before daylight yester

nothing of it to-day but a small portion cf
one foot, which was charred by fire. John
son recovered consciousness Wednesday,
and, it is said, begged for water. Report is
that he died yesterday afternoon and that
several hours after his body was covered
with brush and logs. A lighted match was
applied by unknown persons, and the
blaze from the burning wood leaped high
into the air and could be seen from the
roadside. [An account of the lynching will
be found on the first page.]

From St. Joseph Hospital.
A young girl here had been suffer

until she had lost the use of her limbs,
and was subject to many troubles in

declared her case incurable and pre

speedy end. After taking S. S. S.
she recuperated so fast that it was r
plain that she had obtained a new
lease on life, and she has continued to
grow better until her permanent cure t
is assured. Many other patients in t
our hospital have obtained signal
benefit from S. S. S., and it has be- I
come quite a favorite in our house.

Conscience Lashes R. P. Mayes. C
The following letter was received by the

itself. It is without date, and is written f
from St. James Hotel, New York city. The
writer requests its publication: e
"To my Friends: Conscience triumphs. I
return because it is right to meet my fate. I t
alone made my bed of thorns, and I alone t4
must he thereon. Dishonest I cannot be. f
Every farthing shall be paid, though my life u
shall be in lasting servitude to those who 0
befriended me. Overcome it, I must. Live i
it down, I shall. In reality all this world is
a stage, and every mau must play his part a
from childhood to old age; and when I think
of days gone, how I have been made the tool
of rogues and sharps, through the pretense 9

A good way for the taxpayer who
as much property to return, is to
take a memorandum of the number -
f horses, cattle, mules, sheep and
oats, hogs, watches, organs and pi
nos, buggies, wagons and carriages,
ogs, merchandise, machinery, mon
ys, notes and accounts (above indebt
Iness), furniture, &c., which will save
ae taxpayer time, and enable the as
ssor to progress in the work.
Taxpayers return what they own on
de first day of January, 1891.
Assessors and taxpayers will enter
de first given name of the taxpayer
1 full, also make a separate return
)r each party for the township the
roperty is in, and where the taxpays
r owns realty to insert the postoffice
s their place of residence, and those
rho only own personal property to
ive the party's name who owns the
mnd they live on as their residence,
rhich aids the taxpayer as well as the
ounty treasurer in making the col
ction and preventing errors.
Every male citizen between the ages
f twenty-one and fifty years on the
rst day of January, 1891, except
hose incapable of earning a support
rom being maimed, or from other
auses, shall be deemed taxable polls.
All returns that are made after the
wentieth day of February next have
[ be placed on the additional list and
fty per cent. penalty added thereto,
nless prevented by sickness or out
f the county during the time of list
2g. Not knowing the time of listing
no excuse. And all owners of real
state might do their tenants who
annot read or take a newspaper, a
reat favor by making their returns
r telling them the time of listing,
nd that if they fail to miake their re
rns in time that the valuation has
D be increased fifty per cent. unless
Ley have a good excuse.
The assessing and collecting of tax
s is all done now in the same year,
nd we have to aggregate the number
nd value of all the horses, cattle,
mules, &c., as well as the acres of
tnd, lots and buildings' and their val
e, that there is in the county, and
ave same on file in the Comptroller
~eneral's offlee by the thirtieth day
f June each year. And fromn that
ime to the first day of October each ~
ear the auditor's and treasurer's du
licate has to be completed and an
bstract of the work in the Comp
roller's office by that time, which
ril show at a glance that the audit-~
r has no time to take in returns, or --
.o anything else much, between the
raqt day of March and the first day
f Oeiober each year, but work on the
ooks and- blanks. 'Therefore hope
