LOUIS APPELT, EDITOR.
In the vote to 1tain President
Evans in the miatter of the Columbia
State, the Register unintentionally
iplaced J. W. Kennedy among the
twenty-three timt voted against the
resolution of cohfidence, but in its
next issue did Mr. Kennedy the jus
tiee to correet it.
in the vote last Monday on the
question of whether the terin of gov
ernor should be two or four years,
the Clarendon delegation stood
Sprott, four years' terin Kennedy
and Canrtey, two years' term. Brad
h-uu was not present, he'being de
tained at home by sickness.
The Kingstree Record should study
the political history of this State
before it asserts that Wade Hampton
has nobly endured the disappoint
ment of defeat. If our memory
serves us right the gallant old hero
of 18i swallowed his defeat with
many wry faces. - id the sore spot
a not yet healed, al
hough he is not a "statesman out
of a job."
Several newspapers have published
a rumor to the effect that Hon. John
L. MeLaurin was going to leave the
State. We did not take any stock in
the rumor, because we believed that
if Mr. McLaurin had made up his
mind to leave us he would have given
us some intimation. We are glad to see
the rumor has been denied and that
we are in no danger of losing the
most brilliant representative South
Carolina has had in Congress since
the war. Congressman McLaurin
has had very flattering inducements
to move to New Yor.k to practice law;
this we know of our own knowledge,
and his declining to accept is only
another of the many evidences he
has given the people of his loyalty to
them. The people of the 6th Con
gressional district will not be led
away by designing politicians who
are figuring to destroy McLaurin's
influence, and the efforts of certain
men to destroy McLaurin will ohly
prove a boomerang when the time
comes for the people tosact. If Mc
Laurin should retire from politics
some men would be delighted, but
when they see tnmselves left out in
the cold they will find some one else
to villify and abuse. If a majority of
our next Congress is made up of Mc
Laurins, the evil effects of bad legis
lation will be a thing of the past
and the country will once more be
on the road to prosperity.

of jewelry, watches, clocks, silver ware,

beauty of it, is that whatever he sells yon is
