one of the strongest and best news

do him the justice he merits when we
say that his editorials are gems from
a literary stand point. As a man Mr.
Ball has no superior, always a gentle

There is a big row now among
some of the State house officers.
Comptroller General Norton has gone
for the State sinking fund commission
with gloves off and Secretary of State
Tompkins has retaliated in a vigor

takes a hand in the controversy and
where it will all end no one knows. If
Mr. Norton is correct in his state
ments, the sinking fund commission
is a very unbusinesslike affair and
the machine needs renovating
The communication in another
column signed "Justice" contains
ideas worthy of more than a passing
thought and we hope that our law
makers will consider what he says.
His views on county government are
simple and of easy execution, and if
they were enacted into law it would
do away with the clumsiness of the
present machinery and shape things
so that our supervisor would be more
than a figure-head and the members
of the board would have something
to do. Justice has very evidentlh
given the county government close
study and if the legislature was made
up of men with such practical ideas
we would not have a session pro
longed by useless legislation.
Under the county government law
it takes a majority of the board to
approve the bonds of county officers
and as the board meets quarterly, it
causes an embarassing condition of
affairs. The county treasurer and
uditer are nominatedin a primary
and afterwards appointed by the gov
ernor; the board does not have its
next meeting until April and the ap
pointment of these officees could not
be made before the Last meeting of
the bo',rd, nox while these officers
stand ready to file their bonds they
cannot become commissioned until
their bonds are approved, and they
will be forced to wait until April be
fore being commissioned. We think
the law should be amended to cover
George Washington Murry, South
Carolina's colored Congressman,
created quite a sensation by propos
ing to object to the counting of South
Carolina's electral vote. He has
charge of a petition alleging fraud,
-etc. Senator Tillman and Congress
man McLaurin when seen ab->ut the
matter threatened, if Murry made the
objection they would block the in
auguration of President-elect Mc
Kinley by having an inquiry made
into the elections of other States.
Several Republican Senators have ex
pressed themselves as not being in
sympathy with the sable Congress
man's plan and it is said that promi
nent Republicans have been at work
on Murry to withdraw his petition.
In yesterday's dispatches it is stated
that Marry has decided to withdraw
It is repor-ted that Senator Ragin
will after the adjournment of the
General Assembly tender his resigna
tion as Sentutor and accept thbe posi
tion of chief elerk in the Secretary- of
State's of~ce. Ii. this be true, the peo
ple will have to cast about for a newv
Senator and consider whether it will
pay to undergo the expense of an
election for the unexpired term. These
elections are expensive and if it is
not compulsory we think it would be:
well enough to let the unexpired term
go by default. However, this will be
a matter for the people to consider.
Should they conclude to not want to
elect a Senator for the unexpired
term, it would be well for the mnem
bers of the county excautive cam
mittee to petition the president of
the Senate to with-hold his order for
an election, and it should be done as
soon after the resignation is tender-ed
There is an industry in this State
that is not being treated with ordi
nary fairness by the State board of
control. We speak~ of the breweryv in
Charleston. That concern tur-ns out
an article of beer far superior to the
kind being sold at the local dispen
saries throughout the State, and vet a
brewery from another State is idl
lowed almost a monoply. The
Georgia goods have been sold at the
dispensaries for sometime and the
quality does not begin to compare
with the Germania beer manufac
tured in Charleston. The patrons of
the dispensary should not be forced
to buy goods that do not suit them,
and which do not give value for their
money; we unhesitatingly say the
Charleston goods is not only a better
grade, but it will keep better than the
beer so largely handled from Georgia.
We have no interest in the matter of
where the State buys its goods, but
we do say, that if the State of South
Carolina will continue its charge of
the liquor and beer traffic, it should
also protect her home industries and
encourage them to compete with the
outside world. Just wvhy the State
board of control will not purchase
from the Chaileston brewery we do
not know, but the fact is, the Char-,
leston goods cannot be found in the
dispensar-ies and many- beer- drinkers:
have often wondered wvhy, they- know
ing the goods to be far superior to
the slop, called beer nowv being
palmed off on the public. The peo
THE COUNTY G;VEkRN31ENT LAW.
Justice Thinks That With a Few Amend
ients It Would Be Perf.et-He Offers
Editor The Manning Times: -In
your last issue of the Times was an
aticle headed, "Couuty Government
Top-Heavy," and asks is the pesent
law any improveiment oil th o I
I answer it is an improveni anl
it will be difficult to pass a better
one. With a few amendihents it
would be perfect. The fault iles
with the people, not the law. Pot
men in olice who are competent and
who will do their duty and the prob
len is solved. The way it has been
run in this county is a disgrace to a
civilized community. From -:ort s
made from many couuties where t y
put in the proper oilicers it is work
ing satisfactorily. As you si.
though, there is too large a botye
com:nissioners. Allow ime to sugCe
a few amendments:
1st. Let each township el-t bY
ballot one conmissioner, who-e dut
it shall be to enroll everv na w
is subject to do road duty anl r)t
the names to the supervisor, giVing:,
the section of road they are on.
Then allow him an amount sufficient
to pay for so doing.
2nd. On the first Monday in Jauu
ary each year let the full board meet
at the court house and organize, and
elect three of their members to man
age the affairs of the county.
3rd. Then on the first Mouday of
each month let those three conimis
sioners meet at the supervisor's of
fice to receive his reports and attend
to any business pertaining to the af
fairs of the county, the supervisor
being chairman, but only voting in
case of a tie.
4th. Then prescribe the duties ot
the supervisor. ie shoul be in his
o'ice, say every Monday, to receive
reports, conplaints, and any other
business that may come before him.
5th. That the supervisor should be
required to see evei-y mile of public
road in the county once in each
quarter of the year, also every bridge,
s-> he can repurt their condition to
his board. A fter the unmes of those
subject to road daty is furn1lihed bimi
let him employ competent overseers,
say one for two tuwnsbis,. furnish
them with Decessary tools, and then
let the overseer call out for two days'
work ten hands. That number is as
many as can be worked to advantage,
having another ten to take their
places, unless he goes through his
list and hold the overseer responsible
for tools and amount of work done
according to the number of bands he
has under him. There is at least
2,500 hands in the county subject to
road duty. That would give, work
ing four days, 10,000 days' work each
year. In five years we could have
as fine roads as could be made with
the soil we have-. We would not
only have good roads but it would
increase real estate 50 per' cent. Who
is coming to Clarendon with our
present roads? Then require the
superintendent to put on the chain
gang to fill up and raise the embank
ment of our swamps.
0th. In case the supervisor fails to
do his duty, let the three commis
sioners file a complaint and have the
power to call the full board togzet her
and on a two thirds vote dismiss hi:n
and recommend some suitable perstmi
to the governor for his opponent to
fill the vacancy, also holding the
bondsmen responsible for any neglect
of duties by the supervisor.
The great trouble is that many of
%Gers are afraid to do their duty, es
pecially on the roads, for fear they'
will get the ill-will of the dear- peo
pile and that they wou't vote for them
next time. Jcs-ncE.

MADE A BAD "SITTER."
Trouble of Artists With the rrincess- of
WPies In Her Youth..
When the Pri-nci f Wales was a
young bride, she was constantly in re
quest for sittings to portrait painters,
sculptors and ph ytographers. She was
not, however, a good "sitter, " and used
to pout when comipol.ed to endure the
tediousness of sittiiig hi a studio. Mr.
Frith, the painter, was engaged to paint
a 7eture of the prince and princess, and
he gives a pleasant glimpse of his tribu
Ia: with the Princess Alexandra.
The princess, says Mr. Frith, was
vy yo v'Iung and very beautiful, as all
t wlrld knows. She graciously con

b indiness of heart. Oh, how that

had rea zAd th- (" ing of mine when
1-0oo soon-discovcred that the illustri
Sng lady did not know that keep
ing her face in cI position for a few
minutes even was necessary to enable
an artist to catch a resemblance of it!
The first sitting can I ever forget? I
did not dare to ci nlain till after two
or three fruileSs atcipts. With down
right failure staring me in the face, I
opened my heart to the Prince of Wales.
"You should sculd her," said the
Just at this time the princess was sit
ting for her bust to the celebrated sculp
tor Gibson, R. A., in a room at Marl
borough House. I was sent for by the
prince, and before I was admitted to an
interview I was shown into the sculp
tor's studio, and found him waiting for
a sitting from the princess. The bust
was already in an advanced stage. I did
not think it was very like, and in reply
to Gibson I said so.
"Well, you sce," said Gibson, "the
princess is a delightf-Ji lady, but she
can't sic a bit. "
At that moment I was summoned to
the prince, whom I found with the
princess, and I saw, or thought I saw, a
sort of pretty, smiling pout, eloquent of
reproof and cf half anger with me. The
prince had something to show me-pho
tographs, I think--and then he led the
way to Gibson, the princess and I fol
No sooner did we find our.selves in the
sculptor's presence than-after some re
marks upon the the bust-the prince
"How do you find the princess sit,
"Now," thought I, "if ever a man
was in an awkward fix you are, Mr.
Gibson, for after what yon said to me a
few minutes ago you cannot in my pres
ence compliment the beautiful model on
her sitting. "
The prince looked at Gibson, and
Gibson looked in dead silence at the
prince and then at the princess. Then
he luoked again at the prince, smiled
and shook his head.
"There, you see, you sit properly nei
ther to Mr. Gibson nor to Mr. Frith."
"I do, I do!" said the lady. "You
are two bad men!"
And then we all smiled, and Gibson
went on with his work, the princess
sitting admirably for the short time
that I rcmained.-Youth's Companion.
Ilow a Legisator's Jone Was Made Into
Law to His Surprisc.
DErr one knows that Phil Sheridan
said of Texas, 'If I owned Texas and
hell, I'd rent Texas and live in hell."
Possily out of respect for so great a
man the Tleman's answer was suppressed,
but it wa-s good just the same. He said
with great promptness, "Well, gin'r'l,
yer know a cuss allers will take up fer
the place he cumi frum."
The Texan has a :strong sense of hu
mnor, and it mnanifests itself in other
ways than repartee. The legislator who
proposed that all traiins running into
Texas should be detained for ten min
utes at the state line amd required to
whistle three times in acknowledgment
of the sovereignty of the state didn't
explet to be taken seriously. He wasn't;
but his colleaggues thought it would be
suchi a good joke on the railroads that
they made the suggestion law and for a
time religiously enforced it.

People in general cannot unde:stand
the doings of a student of nature. Es
pecially quite ignoramt per .1s are apt
to conclude, when told that th.oObjects
of his search are fossils or neras,
that under this (xemianation - concealed
the purpose of sccnring m buried
treasure, for that is the only that
would induce them to di:;. Mr. L.
Adams relates an amusing iinsmicu of
While excavating a lare cavern en
the southern coast of Malta ve hadl dug
a trench in the soil on its f1..or sonie six
feet in depth in quest of orgaunic re
mains. The natives in the vicinity,
hearing of our presence, canme in nui
bers daily to witness the proetdiines,
interrn gating the workmen with rofer
enee to the object of our researches, of
which the workmen were abfjct us ig
norant as theMseis.
One afterocon t ex c st.alwart fllmys

the heap of dirt staring down inio the
dark ditch below I d:-oppei a 5pmiish
dollar on a shvelfu: of ear;h, and the
next moment it lay v:ith the soil en
the heap. Picking it up in a careless
manner, I put it into our lunchion bag,
and a few minutenfterward our frien: ds
disappeared, muttering to one another
as they went.
Great was our amusement the next
morning to find that ot:r tr.nch had
been carried fully four feet below the
level we had gained on the previous
evening. Not only that; several other

made by the natives in cxpvetation of

London Barber Thops.
An interesting feature of the east end
barber shops is the rack cf pigeonholes
filled with shaving mugs, Each bearing,
usually in German text, the name of
the owner. The shaving mug is evident
ly esteemed a valuable advertising me
dium, for many a mug bears, in ad li
tion to the ov-ner's name, some emblem
of his business. The undertaker puts on
his mug the picture of a richly appoint
ed hearse, with all the proper trappings
of woe. The butcher decorates his mug
with shoulders of mutton, pigs' heads
and linked sausages. The dentist dis
plays the traditional double row of an
noyingly perfect teeth. The fireman's
mug bears the illuminated picture of a
Vain and handsome men adorn their
cups with photographs of themselves.
Others place beneath their names some
inscription-a sentiment from the poets
or an old German rhyme of good
cheer. A child's photograpb occasion
ally appears on a shaving mug, and
now and then a coat of arms is em
blazoned above the owner's name, for
coats of arms are as abundant in the
east end as elsewhere in town. Some
times it is a national coat of afms, Ger
