WEDNESDAY, DEC. 25, 1895.
G:ory to God in the highest!
And on earth peace,
Good will toward nen !
So the angels chanted the procla
mation of the "Gospel of Peace" to
ward all mankind.
Who can refrain lrom joining in
that sublime canticle, vcicing as it
does the heart-hungry longings of all
of God's intelligent creatures? No
wonder the event is celebrated the
world all over; for who can utter a
word against the doctrine pio
That doctrine was the life-text of
Him whose birth was so highly hon
ored. In all his life and teachings he
ascribed "glory to God" and inculcat
ed "eood will toward men." The ar
gelic anfr iay well be regarded as
an epitome of the Gospel, an epitome
of the entire revelation of God to
man; for it declares our duty toward
God and our duty toward our fellows.
The golden rule is an amplification
of it; so is the sermoi on the mount;
and so the Lord's prayer.
The day should be observed in the
spirit of the proclamation, in the
spirit of Him in whose honor it was
issued, in the spirit of Him who is
sued it, and in hearty appreciation of
the great truths so loftily published;'
so that all the festivities of the season
may be the proclamation itselt in liv
ing and loving action through our
joyful instrumentality. But all should
remember that whilst the "Son of v
Man" came "eating and drinking,"
He never sanctioned riotous and self
ish gratification in meats and drinks,
or any' self-indulgence. Let temper
ance prevail in all things; let se-if ba
forgotten; let each think only of the
other. In blessing others, we bless
ourselves the most.
In iovir g man v:Lem we have seen,
we shicw our love to God. I weesa.
Sonme Lurtened 1.rether bless to-day !
Wr ..all not pass again tis way.
Bearing in mind the great procla
mation of the first Christmas and hav
ing our heai ts full of love to God and
man, we all should pray for "peace on
eartl'," and especially for peace be
tween the two great English-speaking
nationalities of the globe. Let all
the pulpits preach peace on Christ
mas dav. Let all true lovers of God
and man breatl e peace on that day,
speak of peace and pray for peace.
And so may peace prevail between
them and uas, for we be brethren.
This being .the last issue of the
Times for the year 1895, the editor
desires to thank the public for their
kind jatrolnage, and the encourage
ment giveni hm in his efiorts to give
the people a first c'ass con vty news
paper. The Times is iated among I
the best papers in il e St::te wiceh is
gratifying to the, managemient. We
shali in the future strive to merit a
continuance of the esteem in which
this paper is held, and we will prom
ise to do everything in our power to
k.eep the p~aper at its present high
s'andard, and if pessible improve it.
There is one thing v e can boast of,
and that is we have never as yet been
so unforit.nate as to advertise fraud
uilant business houses. Every adver
tiser in the 'Times is reliable and on
this score our readers have never had
any cause to complain.
\':e never shirk e::pressing,our op
pini'ts on wattei s of public concerni,
buat uat the san~ce ilme wve have done
so with a therough regard for the
feelings of others, and we have neveri
-- refused the columns of this paper to
any one when they wanted to discuss
a subject. We will continue on in
this spirit of fairness, and whenever:
there appears anything in these j
colaiuns which doe-s not meet the ap- i
piovtal of any citizen and be wishes to
rnpy our assurance is given that he
shall have a full and a fair showing.
The year 1896, will be full of
natiornal and State politics; the whole
country from one end to the othier t
will be disuuSinag the various politi
cal problems, Nationally the people~
of this State are almost a unit, t o0
there is no danger of much excite
ment on that score, but it is no: so
with State polities, cur people ort
divided into factions, although tie 'C
bitterness heretofore existing has e
somewhat subsided. It will be our
pleasure to- work for the wiping out
of all bitterness and to teach the pe-o- I:
ple that it is to their best interests to a
lay aside factional feeling; that in o
seecing muer to filll the various go~v- a
ernmieatal ofiees, merit and quali- 0
ien~tion should be the guies. 14
We will endeavor to draw to our t
couaay lpope from other counties,
by showing to them the advantages li
of our soil,the~ eliate alnd the whole- 0
sou~eclwess of ouir peop'e There is no a
doubt about it, ''lare-u'lon has as fine c
lands as there are in the State. We el
madle as much cotton per acre as do
the high-priced lands of Marlboro',
and we raise tobacco superior to that
of Virginia. All that we necd is a -
gen~elal pulling together; start up 1
various small industries, raise more
bread, meet, molasses, less cotton and
racket, and keep out of debt; if this
. dne we will have no cause to dread
In expressing our views on any sub
ct we will not try to create the im
ression that we know it all, and we
ball endeavor not to arrive at a con
lusion before giving the matter a
erious thought; we propose to run
bis paper in the interest of the mas
es and not the few, and we realize
hat oar success depends upon the
aasses as well as our own efforts.
In conclusion we desire to again
eturn thanks for the patronage re
eived in the past, and to wish one
LnD all a merry Christmas.
Judge Simorton has held, that to

ipon its arrival, he gave another

iquor was taken to the Columbia

ishment and anongo thers they found
be Gonzale's liquor and seized it.
he case was taken to the United
tates court, and that tribunal re
used to make the State give up the
iquor so seized.
There is some indication of a war
etween England and the United
states. President Clevelaud's recent
nessage has a war-like ring, and it
ias taken the breath away from those
vho have been accusing him of being
he tool of Great Brittain. His mess
Lge on the Venezuela affair is great
Lnd it leaves England with one of two
hings to do-accede to Cleveland's
lemands or fight. He left no room
or quibbling-it is business-put up
>r shut up. We sincerely hope the
atter may be satisfactorily settled
vithout a resort to arms, but should
he United States be forced to war,
Iouth Carolina will be found in the
ore-front as she has always beer
n every war. A war between Uncl?
am and Johnnie Bull will strike
[own all existing sectional barrieis
nd there will be no more -North,
outh, East, or West; but this, the
graniest country the sua shines
'pon" will be one country, s~s it was
rhen the patriot fathers shouldered
heir long muskets and drove the red
aekets from our shores. Let Presi
lent Cleveland sound the toscin, and
mong the first responses will be
outh Carolinats who differ from him
n his financial policiesand who were
>pposed to his nomination for presi
lent; yes, men who denounce( Cleve
and "as the tool of Wall Street" will
ush to the rescue, because it is right
,nd he has himself shown a disposi
ion to maintain and defend the jright.
It is with great pleasure that we
anounce to the people of the Sixth
Jonressional Distzict that Hon. John
JicLaurin has been appointed by
speaker Reed on the ways and zienns
mnmittee of Congress. This appoint
nent is cert ainly a compliment to our
oung Congte::stan as it is a recogni
ation of his worth and ability; it is
~so a compliment to his'people. It gives
aim a high rank in the halls of national
egislatiou and makes him: a leader on
he Democratic side. Thbis is the first
imne sicce 1860 that Scruth Carolina
sS been representedl on the wayvs andI
eans committee. The Columbia
Iegister in speaking of this appoint
Ccngressmian McLaurin, as the dean of
e :ielegation, got by far the best appoint
uents. He has been in Congress longer
hn any other member of the delegation,
id length of servcee counts for mneh in
be selection of commwitteemer!. Thutt is
ot all. howe.ver, that is considered. Brains
nd ability are strong reconnmuendaitionxs for
:ood cominittce berths, and of those M!r.

ourse in State polities bas not always com
ended itself to The Iegister, and has
een condemned by many people in Sonth
arolina, his work in Congress has delight
,d his friends anid no exception ean be
aken to it by his enemies. It is said that
?zar Reed "desred to give McLaurin
erk'd recogniti:.n as a splendid repre.
ntative of th~e prcgressive clement of the
Nw South.'" Ph: eing him on the ways

We have recently noticed in sever.d pa
pers speculations ,as to political transac
tions and results for the year 189G- There
can be no doubt but that some of the State
politicians are getting uneasy and are "cast
ing abont," attempting to make combina
tions and frame political slates for anoth
er campaign. We have recently
noticed the names of several
gentleuen muentionel as probable
candidates for governor and United Slates q.
S-nator. We have also seen the natnes of
a few mentioned as would be successors of
the Hon. John L. McL mrin, in Congress, III
from this, the Gth Di.atrict.
We have seen Mr. McLaurin's name
frequently mentioned in the different State a
papers as a probable condidate foe Giver
nor, and also for United States Senator.
While Mr. ',leLanrin is our personal friend, in
and while we believe that we know just
about as much as any one about his pm:Lns
and political intentions, yet weare free to I
say that we nre ignorant, so far as any ex
pression frOm him .is concerned, as to his
ixtentions for next year.
He is keeping his connsel, and :atreadinr
strictly to his Congressional business, and A
at the the proper time he will show soee
of the place-hnnters whether or not the
people are wiliing for his retiremeet. We
don't know that he will be a andht for
Congress, but should he decide to make
the race ogain we are sure thait no m::.n in
the District can ever give him an intere t
ing race. A few extreme, bitter, puiirile
and dec -ptive ;eoliclans have attempted
to create the impi isiSion in ":d 1inh ti
tion circles" that McL:mrin h-.l very much
weakened his inflience in the Pee Dee jj
country, on account of his fearless and
ont-poken deliverance' on c:-rtain pubbe
questions. But wien the time comes for
MeLaurin to go bfore the people on his A!
record he will not only receive th.- highest
and strongest endorsemoent of the people, D
but he will forever bury in political oblivion
those few places-hunting politicians who D
are continually biting at his hecis.
John L. McL-orin is stronger to-day In A'
Marlboro' county, and Sith Carolina than
ever at any time in his life. He is at his D
post of duty attendling to his business.
He would not be a part% to t e ht.te-Honse
Slze-Making-Colbin.-. He is "sawing
wood," and is willing for the p-ople to act.
If the people want hi:u to he governor,
Senator, Co.ngressnan or anythiLng else. he
will serve them. The politicians need not
tionble themselves about prori-lii:; a place
for Johunie; the people are consbdering his
case, and at the propcr time his services
will be needed and be will respond.-Pee

GOOD FOR EVERYBODY
and everyone needs it at all times of the
year. Malaria is always about, and the
only preventive and relief is to keep the
Liver active. You must help the Liver a bit,
and the best helper is the Old Friend, SIM
xONS LIVER REGULATOR, the RED Z.
Mr. C. Himrod, of Lancaster,' Ohio,
says: "SIMMONS LIVER REGULATOR
broke a case of Malarial Fever of three
years' standing for me, and less that
one bottle did the business. I shall use
it when in need, and recommend it."
Be sure that you get it. Alv.ays look for
the RED Z on the package. And don'
forget the word REGULATOR. It is SIM
MONS LIVER REGULATOR, and there is
only one, and everj one who takes it is
sure to be benefited. THE BENEFIT IS
ALL IN THE REMEDY. Take it also for
Biliousness and Sick Headache; both are
caused by a sluggish Liver.
