A few months ago the conservative
- newspapers could not say enough mean
things about Senator Irby, but now
since he has expressed opposition to
Tillman's ideas, they are slobbering
all over him with kind expressions.
This may all be good politics, but it
strikes us as being rather late to un
dertake to resusitate a man after the
rattles has set in. We do not know
who will succeed Irby, but it does
not need much foresight to see that
he will not succeed himnself.
Under the new constitution, in or

newspaper to acquaint .his neighbor

very important matter and we sin
cerely hope that our readers 'will take
some interest in the matter and see
to it that every white man is informed.
The negroes are interesting them
selves and we are told that their
teachers and preachers have been
instructed to prepare them for the
necessary legal requirements to ob
tain registration certificates. The
constitutional convention made it
possible for "white supremacy" to
last forever, but the convention could
not do it all, the white people them
selves must do- something towards
the scheme; that something is to turn
out and become registered and at the
The State Democratic executive
committee did the proper thing, when
iii declined to usurp the au
thority of the May convention.
They had nothing what
ever to do with the differences exist
ing between Senator Irby and Sena
tor Tillman, and by not recognizing
either one of these distinguished
gentlementhey showed to the people
a higher appreciation of the trust re
posed in them than they would have
shown had they allowed themselves
to be swerved by either. 'The May
convention will meet and it will then
nay what the people want; should
either Tillman or Irby become dis
satisfied they can get out of the way
and others will be found who are
ready to take up the people's cause.
-The day for leaders running things
to suit themselves has become ancient
history; the people are in the saddle
and they propose to stay there.
When the convention assembles,
delegates will be sent to Chicago to
give voice to wbat the majority feel
in South Carolina, and we believe a
delegation will be selected who can
go without being tied and shackled
All this solicitude for the Demo
cratic party that is now being in
dulged in by Senator Irby, is nothing
but the beating of gongs to keep his
courage up. He is a candidate for
re-election, and he stands a first-class
cance of being defeated, therefore,
he must catch at something to stir the
people. The name of Democracy is
cherished in South Carolina and the
people would not drop it unless
forced to do so; but while the people
love the Democracy, they love Demo
cratic principles more than the name,
and if the organization now called
Democratic allows itself to be con
trolled by Republicans masquerad
ing in.Democratic garments there will
be a 'division. The two elem ents will
not live in peace in the same temple,
and no man knows this better than
Senator Irby himself. Did not the
Senator when he believed himself
safe from opposition give expression
to utteranceS more emphatic than the
goprepared-to-boltletter of Senator
On one occasion in discussing the
the financial question, he said:
"I make it with reluctance and deep re
gret, and would gladly avoid the responsi
bility of taking this position, but I behieve
ita olemn dut.yto the producers of this
matin, in every State and especially to the
noble, patriotic, and liberty-loving peiple
of South Carolina, to raise the hand of
warning and place those who seem intoxi
cated with power, upon positive notice that
if they ruthlessly and by the aid of Repub
lican votes, over-ride our wishes in this,
the most important of all the questions of
public policy, I for one will not follow their
lead another step."
Now the Senator without giving
any reason would have the people of
this State tied hand and foot with in
structions to the national convention,
and although he gave positive notice
that he would not follow the lead of
men who are over-riding the wishes
of the people, he faces about at this
time,and tells them they must pledge
themselves to swallow anything the
national convention chooses to give
them. Senator Irby's doctrine may
be good, but it comes from him with
considerable inconsistancy. If when
he felt safe in his position he could
not follow the lead of the over-riders,
how can he do so now?
The Senator has a great many
warm friends throughout the State,
and he merits them for his excellent
management of our political affairs.
but the people have amply repaid
him for his services, and his present
gymnastics in our opinion is nothing
but a little side-show to draw the
votes of the conservative faction to
him. He believing that on account
the bitterness of the past the conser
vative faction would support any
body to side-track Tillman, but the
faction he is now courting remember
Irby's connection with past bitterness
and they accredit him with a full
share of the responsibility of it.
Senator Irby cannot by his abuse
of Tillman tickle the conservative
ear sufficiently to win their votes nor
can he be re-elected with his hip-hip
hurrah-for-Democracy tactics, and if
he goes before the people and does
not show a better record as a repre
sentative than he has been credited
with in the Congressional Record his
name is Mud.
Senator Tillman is now making a
tour of the West. This trip is by
invitation from a large number of
people who are anxious to be relieved
from their present political moorings,
and the whole country is now watch
ing and waiting to see the effect. The
politicians have so beclouded the
financial problem, that the masses are
at sea and all that they know is that
there is something radically wrong
somewhere. Senator Tillman and
men of his way of thinking believe
the remedy lays with national legis
lation; they believe the government
is responsible for the ills endured,
and they also believe the present
leaders in both of the old parties are
tarred with the same stick and that
they are in league with the moneyed
interests against, and to the detri
ment of the masses. There has been
a great deal said about South Caro
lina's Senator looking for a light in
the West and the result of his tour
will be eagerly watched. Whether
Tilman will turn up the light suffici
ently to give a blaze bright enough
to illuminate thewhole of the United
States remains to be seen, but there
is one thing certain, he will agitate
his views and plant in the
hearts and .minds of the
Western people such a sentiment that
those holding contrary views will be
put to their trumps to stop the silver
wave that is now gathering through
out the entire West and South.
The people feel a depression grow
ing more heavily every day, and the
prospect for relief does not seem to
loom up. The Republican party was
held responsible for the depression,
the people drove them from power
and gave the entire management of
affairs into the hand of the Demo
cratic party, but the relief looked for
did not materialize. Now both of
the old parties are blamed and a
spirit of unrest exists everywhere;
what the outcome of the present con
ditions will be cannot be foreseen.
Senator Tillman thinks the relief can
be obtained by a coalition with the
producers of the West who appear to
be paddling along the political stream
with the producers of the South; each
section seeking a haven of prosperlty.
The question with those of the West,
is whether or not to break from their
party ties and put new leaders for
ward, and the South is hesitating
whether to tear loose from the party
of their fathers and join hands with
those of the West who have the same
interests and objects at stake.

III. HOW SHAL I EAD?
I think it would be wise for us to
read with a two-fold purpose in view.
1. We want to read so as to gather
food for ourselves or personal needs,
spiritual, moral and intellectual.
2. We want to read so as to fill our
own winds with the great thoughts
of great men so that we may be able
to impart to others the knowledge
that we have received. We would
not like to be like the sponge, all the
time receiving, but rather like the
fountain, giving out. To do this, we
must be sure to read with care and
think over what we read. Many
read in a careless, thoughtless way
and all they learn is soon forgotten.
Let us read ever with a purpose not
simply to pass the time, but to re
ceive something that will help me in
life's great battle, or help me to help
some one else.
David said' Psalms 119:15, "I will
meditate in thy precepts, and have
respect unto thy ways." Like David,
we must think about what we read if
would be benefitted.
You step aboard the average pas
senger train and ere you have taken
your seat some one will present be
fore you an armful of books, their ti
ties, etc., some of them enough to
make a Christian man turn pale.
And yet this is the kind of literature
that thousands are reading "just to
pass away the time." Stop! You
have no time to pass away. Life at
its best is short, and each moment
should be filled. To read a bad
book is infinitely worse that to "waste
time.;' Don't do it. There are more
than 25,000 books published every
year. Let us select from them the
good and pure. And always be care
ful what you read, when you read,
and how you read.

Our newly elected town authori

several important ordinances in ref

understand that they elected, or
rather appointed, a board of health,
which was organized with Maj. Land,
S. Y. Barnes, and Dr. L. W. Nettles
as members. The council seems to
be having a good deal of business to
day, having cooped several birds on
Sunday that didn't belong to the

the town. Had them brought into

Some of them paid up and others

three denominations, was certainly
very good. The organist, Miss

The "moticn song of praise," sung

BY REV. J. O. GOUGH, MANNING, S. C.
I Tim., 4, 13: "Till I come give at
tendance to reading."
There are some people in the
world who seldom ever read any
thing but the secular newspaper.
But to those who have found time
for an hour's reading among the re
ligious thought of the world, have
desired to know what to read; "what
can I read to spend this hour in the
most profitable way ?" there may be,
I think three questions asked as to
1. WHAT SHALL I BEAD
Reading is an educator, but
whether our readingjresults in a good
or bad education depends upon what
we read. The thought of reading
seems to have risen in the minds of
the prophet, Isaiah, when he said,
"Seek ye out the book of the Lord,
This I would say is the best of all
books to read. If you can spend only
one hour in reading let me ask you tc
spend that hour in reading and medi
tating over the "book of the ages,
the Bible." Here you will find the
grandest history that has ever beer
recorded. Here the biography of
the most glorious and illustrious met
that have ever existed upon this
earth. In the bible are to be found
some of the most thrilling stories t<
be found in any book. So in short
what ever our inclinations are, o1
whatever be our desire, we will find
inthe bible just what we need.
Colridge has said that there ar
four kinds of readers: "First-claa
are those, who may be compared t<
an hour glass, their reading being a
the sand: it runs in and runs out, anc
leaves not a vestage behind.
Second-class resembles a sponge;
which imbibes everything and re
turns it in nearly the same state, onl3
a little dirtier.
Third-class is like a jelly-bag, whicl
allows all that is pure to pass away
and retains only the refuse and dregs
Fourth-class may be compared tc
the slaves of Golcando, who, casting
aside all that is worthless, preserve:
only the pure gems."
"Books are like friends, should be
few, and well chosen," and from these
well chosen books let us gather the
gems. Rober t Weidensall, an activE
Christian worker, was once being, en
tertained at the home of a Christiar
woman. The woman desired, as shE
expressed it, to "grow in grace," and
requested him to give her all the
help he could. As he was leaving hE
told her the little story so full of
"Once," said he, "when at my old
home in the country, I saw a hen
vigorously scratching in the yard for
her dinrner. As I stood watching her
she scratched up a silver quarter. L
she had known the value of the
money, and could have used it, she
could have provided herself with that
which she needed. Around and
around, back and forth, went the
quarter, as the hen scratched for her
food. I was reminded of this hen,'
said the gentleman, "as I saw you in
your library this morning. Hungry
for spiritual food, you came in your
library to read, and s our bible, that
which would give you the food you
needed lay on your table. You
scratched over and pulled from the
bottom of the papers 'Harper's
monthly,' and like the hen you kept
sratching the bible to right side and
left, ignorant of its value, trying to
get food from the books of men."
How true this lesson, does it not
strike us all? There are many books
that should never enter our homes.
It has been my great pleasure to
burn some which have come to me as
a gift. There is a book being circulat
ed through the mails, entitled "Heav
en and its Wonders and Hell" by
Swedenborg. This is the most fatal
book, outside of positive infidelity.
that you could place in your home,
It is infidelism. The writer claims to
have died and gone to heaven, and
investigated all of the heavenly courts,
and then returned to hell and saw all
of its horrors,etc,then back to earth to
tell the people. Never should a book
of this nature enter my home or have
any one influenced by it. "The
Science of Correspondence Eluci
dated," by Madeley, is another of the
same publications, and while I have
not read it, I believe it to be a dan
gerous book. Dr. Brouders said
that"a man could not spend one hour
in reading the bible without being
greatly benefitted; likewise he could
not read "The Chicago Times" one
hour without being badly injured."
Many people who call themselves
Christians are spending not only
hours but days over the Chicago
Times or some trashy novel. The
influence of a bad book is as vicious
as that of an evil companion, and in
some cases more so.
I know of a boy who spent night
after night reading the daring stories
of an adventure. He became tired of
home, restless, and from his kindred
and home and friends he has wan
dered. To-day, like the prodigal, he
is in "a far country," somewhere in
the unknown West. I believe the
continual reading fired his soul for
I would that the Christian homes
all over this country would look into
their book-cases, and like the Chris
tians at Ephesus, recorded in the 19th
chapter of Acts and 19 verse: "Many
of them brought their books together,
and burned them before all men." I
do not believe that parents are care
ful enough as to what their children
are reading. There are plenty of
good books-let us place them in the
hands of the children.
Most of us would doubtless say
that the best time to read is when
you get a chance. No one is so busy
that he or she cannot findl some time
to read if they will I believe that
where there is a will there is a way.
We can find time to read and not rob
urselves of sleep or neglect duty.
Just a few moments before breakfast
r at dinner or supper will fill the
mind with thought while you are
plowing or working, as duty de

Kingstree, April 6th:-To-day,
Monday, has been a lively one in
