WZDVIRDAYI INVZKBf 11 1001,
Last Friday Hon. W. J. Talbert de
livered an address to an audience in
the court house numbering about two
hundred, which was a large audience
considering the fact that the notice of
the meeting was short. The Alliance
in this county is not making any wild
or noisy demonstrations, but is stead
ily going on, despite the opposition
and obstacles thrown in its way.
There will be two other public meet
ings in this county as soon as speak
era can be procured, and it is to be
hoped that a more extended notice
will be given of the time and place,
so that the speakers will be greeted
with large and enthusiastic audiences.
"Gala Week" in Charleston last
week is said to have been a very poor
affair. It was the first of these occa
sions we ever attended, and we saw
nothing to be specially proud of. The
hotels and boarding houses were ad
vertised to furnish board and lodg
ings at reduced rates, but there was
the usual element of human depravity
exhibited, and the prices were as
high as oould be gotten. We arrived
in the city at one o'clock Wednesday
night, and found the first two hotels
we went to full to overflowing. We
were directed toa private house, how
ever, where we were very comfortably
quartered. The weather was beauti
ful and delightful, and everybody
seemed to be having a good time.
We attended Paine's spectacular
show of "Paris from Empire to Com
mune," and it was one of the best
things we ever saw in our life. What
we saw there fully repaid us for our
trip to Charleston.
Loafingis one of the most disgust
ing and deleterious practices of the
day, and is not confined to the male
sex only. Loafing does not necessa
rily mean that the person must be on
the street, but he or she may loaf at
hdfte. It means to spend one's time
in idle talk or doing nothing. It
means a neglect of one's regular bus
iness. The girl that spends her time
idling about the house, leaving moth
er to do all the housework while she
bangs on the piano or reads some
sily novel, is equally as guilty of loaf
ing as the old bummer who beats all
hisdrinks. Boys should be kept off
the street except when they have bus
ines; there are too many evil things
for them to see and hear. Occasion
ally we see a professional man neg
lecting his regular work and loafing
about,andit ay be set down as an
axiom that the preacher, teacher, or
lawyer who is frequently seen loafing
in the streets instead of being in his
*study or c'ffice, making preparation
for his life work, is a failure, and will
never mount high on the ladder of
Yesterday was election day in a
Snumber of States, and Democracy
-met with success in most of them.
The States wherein the most interest
lay were New York, Massachusetts,
Ohio, and Iowa.
In New York, Ohio, and Massaebu
-setts the political warfare was carried
on with great energy. Candidates
were put forward representing the na
tional issues, and upon these issues
the bat tle was fought.
Roswell P. Flower and Jacob S.
Fassmett were the candidates of the
-two parties in the .Empire State.
.-.lower defeated his Republican op
*ponenit by about twenty thousand
* In Massachusetts Governor Russell
defeated his Republican antagonist,
the Hon. Henry Cabot Lodge, by
.about 5,000 majority.
In Ohio, where the fight was made
on the tariff and silver questions, Mc
Kinley, Republican, defeated Camp
bell by about 15,000. The returns
from this State are not all in yet, but
the Associated Press despatches say
that at midnight last night Campbell
conceded McKinley's election.
. In Iowa the Republicans dropped
all issues of importance, and endeav
ored to capture the government by
offering the people, as the party's
-stock in trade, hatred, slander, and
the vilification of the South. This
the people refused to tolerate, and
showed their disapproval of cowardly
issues by electing Governor Boies and
his entire Democratic cabinet. The
result of this grand victory was cele
brated last night with demonstrations
of joy from the mouths of booming

land, and New Jersey were all Demo
The churches most of them say it
is wrong to attend theatres, circuses,
and such, and we in the main agree
with them, for most of such places of
amusement have a demoralizing in
fluence upon the mind and morals.
There is, however, a line to be drawn
somewhere, for all amusements are
Dot immoral or harmful, but on the
contrary many of them are beneficial.
Pain's spectacular play in Charleston
last week was a combination of the
theatre and circus, and yet after a
close and critical watch of everything
dlone there, we are free to say that it
was not only not hurtful, but in every
respect beneficial. It gave a broader
and1 grander view of the capabilities
of mian, and there was not a single
demoralizing act. In our judgment
the great evil to man is not from at
tending standard plays and theatres
(of course we exclude all "female
minstrel troupes for men only," and
such plays as are evidently demoral
iinrg or calculated to debase man's
nobler feelings), but it comes more
from the ball room and "high-toned"
social gatherings, where our beautiful
and lovely women appear in costume
largely exposing their person to the
gaze of their male companions.
"Hands off" should be woman's mot
to, but, instead, we are told that of
ten in the fashionable ball rooms,
lovely women with beautiful form,
face, and figure, and in dresses in
*which it is evident that after having
bought the material the skirt was
first made, and then there was only
half enough material left for the body,
allow themselves in the mazes of the
voniousn ance, to be tightly em
:raced by their companions, and
with his arm around her tapering
waist and her cheek gently resting on
bis manly shoulder, hour after hour
is spent in these voluptuous pleasures.
Here, especially, is the great moral
danger to society. If this evil be cor
rected; if woman is taught that it is
not right and proper to allow man to
toy with her, whether in the ball
room or parlor, then will the evil of
theatre-going be greatly diminished.

where the language and gestures are

The Weight of a Dollar Bill.
[From a Washington Letter.]
In the treasury here one day this
week the question came up as to the
weight of a $1 bill. Scales of perfect
accuracy were brought into requisi
tion, and the surprising discovery
was made that twenty-seven $1 notes
weighed exactly as much as a twenty
dollar gold piece. The latter just
balances 540 grains. However, the
bills weighed were perfectly crisp and
new. Trial made with soiled notes,
such as come in every day for re
demption, showed that twenty-seven
of them weighed considerably more
than the twenty-dollar coin. Every
paper dollar on its way through the
world continually accumulates dirt,
perspiration, and grease, so that after
a year or more of use it is perceptibly

something may be collected to be for.
Miss Brown is also an elocutionist of a
very high order, having graduated at Wil

graduated in elocution at the Chautauqua
school of elocution, and has traveled very
extensively. She is highly endorsed by
representative men throughout the country
for the position of solicitor of exposition.
Among the endorsements are letters from
Gov. Campbell and Win. McKinley, of
Ohio. She recited very charmingly, "How
he saved St. Michaels," "She would be a
mason," "Aunt Jemima's courtship," "The
last hymn," "The elf child," -"The kitchen

sion fee was .15 eent-. $8.40 was realized
for the exposition.
