Entered at the Post Office at Manning as U
and McKinlev's election are things of -e
past and THE Tiumxs would rejuid its
readers that there are much deeper issues o
at stake than conjecturing and holding tj
post-mortems over what might have been
or rehashing the merits of free silver an:1
deno'incing the single gold standard as S
insufficient to meet the demands of the t
people. Take hold and do the best with y
what's in sight. You are not goitg to im
prove either your own or your neighbor's
circumstances by exploding what you a
would have people think are your own r
original thonghts. Wait natil 1898, and f
. then give tLem to us. together with all
you might have learned, in one grand,
What yon would have to do with now are
the necessities of life, good substantial
shoes, Try Goods and Clothing. Your
first thought is : In what market I can buy
them cheapest? Your next thought: In
what particular store can I purchase to the
best advantage of myself ? This question
has had its answer for some time, and
many there are who can testify to the fact
that Ihe Diamond Racket Store of Sumter. tl
S. C.. has long sinep held the supremacy s
in Shtis, Dry Goods. Notions, Hats, Caps,
Hardware and Tinware-especially Shoes.
The Diamond Racket Store is opposite f,
Bank of Sumter. next door to Dr. Lorme's
drug store. Sumter, S. C.
The mills all over the country f,
have started up, and the gold stan
dard newspapers are making a great
deal of capital out of it, but those i
who bare the products of the soil to
sell can not see why it is, that with t]
all of this revival of business, the f
hard worked-farmer can not realize
more for his cotton. Instead of cot
ton bringing a better price as every
body thought when the election was
4over, it is going down, down, and the
bottom has not been struck yet, we
The opposition already fear that
their victory is only temporary, and

Bryan will eventually win. They are
therefore, organizing for the next
battle already. Orders have been
sent down the Republican lines to r
keep up the organizations lest the
silver heresy might take root in un
expected quarters; the.. friends and a
allies, the gold Democrats(?) are b
also organizing to render all the aid ti
possible to keep the e >utrol of our
finances from getting out of the hands
-of the present manipulator-s. But
the may be organized as much as e
they like, nothing short of a more
p)r.operous condition will satisfy thbe \

Strong pr-essulre is being brought
to bear- 0n Go.vernor Evans to take t
off the metropolitan police from Char
lesIon, We do not know what the E
Governor will do, but ther-e is one
thing certain, Captain Martin, chief
tnarshall, should make a strong show
ing to the governor whythe metropol
itan system should be continued. If
under that system the law is better
enforced than under the old order of w~
things, the governor should stand by f
it, by all means, but if under the d
present- sy'stemn, blind tiger-s, and i
foot-pads, glass smashers and burg- fa
jars, have free re'a, then take it off 2
and let Charleston manage her own ai
affai:- We believe in local self- 7'
government, but when those in -
power are hand-in-glove with viola-w
tors of th~e law, the law will not be ct
respected and enforced. In such a
case the State should step in to pro- -A
teet the law abiding citizenship. Chief
Martin has made a first-clas3 officer
and we believe if left to a vote, the 9
people cf Charleston would ask that t
he be r-etained at the head of the po- ,
lice department, even if the gover- b
nor withdraws the present system. S
Governor Evans should act in the n
matter from a business standpoint e
and not be governed, either by a ti
desire to relieve the incoming admnin- m
isdration or to continue the systemP
