WEDNESDAY, DEC. 4, 1895.

speaker of the House Representatives.
His rulings, while speaker before,
made him notorious, and we expect
to see him sit down on the few re

Congress is again in session and
all of South Carolina's representatives
except Senator Irby are at their posts.
It is to be hoped that with the ex
perience of the last Congress some
good will be done by this one. The
country eertainly needs somec legisla

monoplies, trusts and corporations
have been looked after long enough,
now the people should be given a
*chance to battle for existance.

The Atlanta Journal severely criti
cizes' the speeches of Senator Tillman
and Governor Evans, delivered in
the Auditorium on the exposition
grounds last Thursday, and the cause
of cofense, apparently is the remark
of Governor Evans, that "the South
.intended to rule this country." Thie
ren.ark brought forth a most scath
ing and slanderous editorial from the
Journal, so bitter was it that con
demnation of the editorial could be
heard inevery hotel lobby. But the real
-reason for the attack is not. what Gov
einer Evans said, but wbat Senator
Tillnman said in his referance to th~e
Journal and Macon Telegraph; these
two Georgia papers are built from
the same model as the Columbia
State and can see no good in any act
of a South Carolina Reformer. Their
stock in trade, in fact their existance,
depends on feeding on such material
as will bring forth slander, abuse and
vituperation; misrepresentation is
their fortland unless a man in public
life bows to -the dictation of these
mud-slingers, he is constantly in
dhoger of being lied about.
If Salem is cut off from Clarendon
it means that our white population is
red uced fully one-third, and that the
tm'xes necessary to run the county
wiji be increased considerably. The
itia me of taxation will not come out
of us lonie; ibe part cut off, its taxes
w~i dicb increased to a greater estem:
tl.aa ums, because they will have to
contribute their portion towards
bu2ildimng a court house and jail, which
we already have. Do our Salem
friends feel warranted in voting upon
themselves more taxies just to icrease
th~e properly valuation of a few iu
dilvidiuals whose land will be at th:e
new county seat? If they do, then
thymygo aheamd anid divorce t~m
Thi~e iirst questionf for thlem to cou
iler is whethmer or m:ut it is to the
iotieresd of a maijority of their own|
people to be cut oi; theu would not
the cost be more than the benefit,
- also the necessity for such a step. If
after having considered all these
things, then have they the required
amount of taxable property, popnla
tion, area etc.
We are convinced that the wholk of
Salem can not be cut off, because if
i: was, Clarendon would not have her
500 Fquare miles, as required by the
Coustitutiol). No old eounty can be
cut down to less than 500 square
miles. That being the case, we ex
pect to hear of a change of front on
the subject from some who are urg
ing the people to support the new
county scheme. Just as soon as the
politicians now out in the cold find
they will not get any political pie they
will about face and turn their guns
on the new county.
We oppose the new county,because
we believe Clarendon is small enough
as she stands. To make her any
sa1ler will not give the Salem peo
ple the benefits they expect, and at
the same time it will injure us.
It is to be hoped that before any
definite action is taken in the matter,
the people will seriously consider the
question without allowing themselves
to be influenced by men who have
some selfish purpose to carry out.
We realize that a few have to travel
a considerable distance to reach the
county seat, but they have business
at the county seat so seldom that the
trip is more of a pleasure than a
burden; but if a new county is estab
lished somebody will have to travel
distances to reach the county seat as
they do now, unless the projectors of
the new county, propose to erect a
court house at every man's barn yard.
The question is a serious one and
should not be lightly considered. If,
however, two-thirds of the people will
vote to pay aaditional taxes, we will
have to submit.
Under the new constitution we
notice, the legislature must make
provision for the maintainance of the
office of bank examiner. This is a
very important position and one that
should be filled by a first-class busi
ness man, a man thoroughly familar
with the working of banking institu
tions, He should also be a man be
yond the reach of flattery, bribery
or other methods to swerve him from
his duty. If the proper man is ap
pointed to this position, there is no
telling the vast amount of good it
will do the people generally, and
especially those who deposit - their
money in banks. If this officer does
his full duty we will hear of less ir
regularities and shortages, and de
positors will have more confidence in
the banks with which they do busi
ness. We have been casting about
for a man to suggest for this posi
tion and we can find none that we
think could more ably fill the bill
than General J. L. Stoppelbein, of
Summerville. He is thoroughly com
petant, has had a first-class business
training and he is a courteous gentle
man, young and vigorous, in fact
about the right kind of a man to un
dergo the hardships of almost con
stant travel which the position would
necessarily entail. It is with great
pleasure that we present the name of
Gen. J. L. Stoppelbein for the ap
pointment of bank examiner for

Place to Stop.
We went to the big show, and alihangi
our stay was not as long as we should like
in order to thoroughly take it in, we mpad
good use of the time and can truly say that
the Atlanta exposition is the greatest thing
we have ever visited, and r? obtained more
knowledge in out three days stay there.
than we could have obtained from a stndy
of books in six months. Last Wednesday
morning our streets was the scene of con
siderable bustle, caused by the large nnm
ber getting ready for the trip. The Man
ning Guards together with a number of
ladies and gentlemen embarked cn the 9:15
train and through the kindness and atten
tion of Conductor Oglesby the ladies were
soon comfortably seated in one car and the
gnards in another; the boys were out for a
lark, and they eertainly had one from start
to finish. At every station on the entire
route they would tumble out of their car,
chase chickens, reb turnip patches.
and make the welkin ring with their mer
ry voices and whenever a stranger would
pass through the car the bogs would receive
him with a grand ovation, cheers and count
er cheers would greet them regardless of
age. Song and jest was the order of the day
and the guards' quarters became the most
popular on the train. The Captain had his
good lady along with him, but like most
men when on frolic bent he left her in
another car vith the other women folks and
he tried to out-frolic the most frolicsome
much to the embarassmfi of the writer,
who was on his dignity and was amazed to
see the Captain of the Guards capering
around among his men with as much glee
as a little boy would with a new pack of fire
crackers. The Captain would also take oc
cassion to wink at and kiss his hand to the
pretty girls on the station platforms. This
is telling tales out of school we know, but
we owe him a grudge and take this oppor
tunity to get pay for it.
At every station until we passed Abbe
ille passengers poured into the train, and
lthough we had ten coaches by the time
we reached Newberry, the cars were packed
like sardines, and at this place was the
first time ladies became a part of the
Guards' private coach, and well it was so.
Their presence had a good effect; it made
the boys a little less hillarious and instead
of guying each other, they set about to get
into the good graces of the fair ones. Our
own envy was stirred when we saw these
young fellows take to the ladies like ducks
to water and leave us off in the cold to med.
itate how it used to be when we were young.
While thus engaged the god of - fortune
came to our assistance, and he soon made
it suit for an introduction to one of the
most intelligent and one of the sweetest
little women we have met since the day we
found the one that now enjoys the pleasure
of staying at home to look after our little
ones while we are off for pleasure. This
little lady was so agreeable, and she had
such a nice lunch, that we forgot all about
the fatiguing ride. Our whole mind was
taken up in trying to be equal to her ef
forts at entertaining.
Our grudge against the Captain is for
this: he saw that we were in perfect bliss
and he maliciously poked himself in to di
vide the attentions of our newly made friend.
Were we jealous ? Well, we guess so, and
not standing any show himself, he sought
r-inforcements from among his men and
brought forth such dudes as Willie John
son and Georgie Bradhbam. The former
was a perfect pest and the latter Lad his
head turned. Other wistful eyes were
upon us also, for we saw a young
chap slip a newspaper toe our charm
ing friend over the back of the seat, and
on it waLs written, "Why do you waste time
with that old duffer," and our companion
with a bewitching smile whispered hack,
"How can I help myself ? I have done all
I could, have even given him lunch to stop
his clatter." Is it any wender-that we feel
We arrived in Atlanta several hours be
hind time, and then came the trouble that
bad management or breach of contract
causes. The boys were assigned to a place
on Marietta street, and when they got there
and marched in, the proprietor of the
"shebang" was out of the way, and the
floors were strewn with mattresses with no
covering. This did not suit the Guards, so
they marched out of the ranch with many
maledictious on the heads of those to
blame. Back to the depot they went, and
fter a whole lot of running about on the
part of the Captain and others, quarters
were found over a store. The proprietor 01

things as comfortable as possible, and al

andsome egray uniforms and white

T1here was one very noticable circum
tance; people walking on the sidewalks
would halt opposite the Guards to get a
ood look at them, and all along the three
aie line of march, cheers and waving of
andkerbiefs wvould greet our boys. At
yne poirut we heard :t young lady say,
"Hurrah for the handsome fellows with

ipondled to with the waving of handker
~hiefs and clapping of bands from what
pearedito be a large number ofoollege girls.

energies were devoted to getting the good
out of the exhibits and as we said before
we received more information and knowl
edge in our short staty than we eould have
received froni b.nkMs; u .'ixi months.
asatrday morning the Guards reinctantly
left Atlanta and as we did r.ot accompany
them home we cannot tell what took place
on the ieturn trip, f.cept from heresay;
we are told that the bovs continued- trying
to make :nansher at every depots, and a! one
place they attempted to kiss the girls at the
command of the Captain. At another place
e (.f our boys undertook to guy and in
return rOevc(t iiour in their faces. All
usorts of it.raent mischief was indulged in
and be it s'aid to the credit of the :Mlanning
crowd tuat they had a big time, made the
welkin ring with their hilarity. played all
sorts c.f foolish and sportive ;antic<, flirted
with the girls regardless of wrinkled faces,
maurried or .sir~g, and at the same time not
a iman of them was seen under the influ
ence o liqnor, nor did any of them at any
time fcrget the-y were gentlemen.
We remained over until Saturday night
on acconut of being in the party of onr
commanding officer, and by doing so we
had that mueb advantage of the other Man
ningites; it gave us one more day of sight
seeing, and after traveling all night we ar
rived at boume worn out with fatigue ten
o'clock Sunday morning, and ever since
our ears have been ringing with music,
and the weired sounds from the Midway.
Our trip was over the Seaboard Air Line
via Atlantic Coast Line. The country was
simply beautiful, especially after Columbia
was passed. The railroad officials did all
in their power to handle the immense
crowds and notwithtanding the fact that
none of the trains could be bandled on
time great credit is due the officials; we
have not heard of a single accident or a
piece of lost baggage, and the conductors
were models of courtesy.
The Atlanta people themselves, did ot
show the Carolinians the attention we ex
pected to ;ee, but when it is remembered
that the exposition is a six months affair
they are to a great extent excusable. What
attentions were shown was in a stiff, for
mal manner, a banquet here, a reception
there, and at another place a theater-box
party, and even these things from awkward
handling became mixed and caused n is
understandings. We have came to the con
clusion that on Carolina day Atlanta was
bewildered and she had more on her hands
than she could manage. In these rambling
thoughts about the trip we must caution
those expecting to go, not to make any ap
pointments to meet on the grounds. We
made several, one with the little goddess
from Newberry, another with a beautiful
friend from Abbeville. and one with two
charmers from New York, and in every
case we failed u find the objects of our
search. We know there was no dodging
in the affair, for we have reasons to believe
they were as anxious to find us as we were
them. So when you want to scatter and
get together again have the entrance gate
your meeting point.
We are home uov and about rested from
the trip, but if our inclinations and desires
could be gratified, we would return to-mor
row to spend at least ten days, for we feel
that the time could be pleasantly and most
profitably spent. Parties contemplating
going to Atlanta will do well to take the
Seaboard Air Line.

DEMAND AND SUPPLY.
From The Washington, (D. C.,) Silver
We are pleased to see the New York
World undertake to discuss demand and
supply. Such an undertaking may lead to
an investigation by which even the editor
of the World may learn something on that
subject, but before any intelligent under
standing can be had on the subject the
World must take into consideration some
thing besides commodities. The demand
for manufactured commodities depends
upon the capacity of the people to buy.
There is no doubt of their capacity to con
sume all they are able to buy. The quan
tity they are able to buy will depend upon
the money they have, because in every
transaction where money is given for com
modity money is one-half the consideration
nd when the World supposes that the peo
ple of the United States can buy all the
oods that the factories can manufacture
without money to do it, with the World is
very much mistaken. While overproduc
ion is impossible if the people had the
eans to supply their wants, because the
wants of man always have and always will
nerease much faster than his capacity to
mupply his wants. in this oountry the peo
ple do not fail to buy new clothes because
bey do not want to, but because they are
:ompelled to economize and mend and
wear their old clothes because they cannot
get the money to buy them new. While
we prodice much less than the people need
we produce mere than they are able to buy
because of the scarcity of money, which is
proved by the fact that money will buy
about twice as much as it would twenty
ears ago and consequently when compared
with property it is much dearer than it
rormeraly was. The trouble is that money
bas got so dear that people that have no
way to obtain money except by their labor
nd the production of property are short of
money and unable to buy what they desire
and many of them are not able to find
money enough to keep clothes on their
backs and the "wolf from the door." We
are surprised that the World quotes from
Edward Atkinson. It ougct to have been
known by everybody by this time that Ed
ward Atkinson in all his discussions has
the habit of leaving out of consideration
the most important fact, which is standard
money. He thinks that money is exempt
rom the law of supply and demand and
that it makes no difference what the quan
tity of suchimoney may be, the value will
remain the same. His philosophy is not
affected by the fact that prices go down in
this country 'with every shipment of gold to
Europe. He thinks prices go down by
their own weight and not because the
roundation of prices, which is standard
money, is taken out from under them.
re following shows how glibly the World
~alks about supply and demand without
aking into consideration the supply and
emand of money as if the prices of every.
hing bought and sold was not named in
ernis of money:
