BUILD A FACTORY.
South Carolina is now numbered
among the cotton manufacturing
States, and in a few years she will
be among the foremost in this great
industry. The tariff discussion in
Congress has brought to light that
this State is considered a strong com
petitor with the manufacturing States
of the East. Then why do not our
home people .put their capital to
gether and bring to us a mill within
the reach of our farmers whereby the
_cotten grown in this community can
be- manufactured instead of having
the raw material shipped abroad.
If the business men of this county,
whether, they be merchants, profes
sional men or farmers,would come to
gether there would soon be in our
midst the humming of spindles as is
the case in the up country. If we
had a factory in this county every
man who raises cotton would feel its
benefit in the increased price they
would receive for the product. We
would like to see some enterprisig
citizen take this matter in hand and
work it with a determination to suc
ceed. A few years ago if some one
had suggested a knitting factory, at
once he would have been discouraged,
but let it be said in honor of Mr. W.
Scott Harvin that he did not wait,
and with that nerve which makes the
successful business man he invested
his money, and the result has proven
a boon to this town. There are now,
from the industry started by Mr. Har
vin, not less than fifty people receiv
ing employment and in a short time
double the number will be employed.
Now, if others would follow in the
footsteps of our enterprising friend,
Manning would soon spread out, the
town would soon be filled in with
people fromr elsewhere and property
would take a jump.
The "News and Courier," Green
ville "News" and the Charleston
"Post" have been laboring very in
dustriously to make the people be
lieve that Governor Ellerbe has been
guilty of deception, or to put it more
forceful, lying. The Governor has
made a full, complete and convincing
statement as to his connection with
the Metropolitan police, and Mayor
Smythe has made his official report
to the City Council. -These two dis
tinguished gentlemen differ as to
what took place between them and
the newspapers above referred to
have taken advantage of that differ
ence to endeavor to place Governor
Ellerbe in an unenviable position. In
our humble opinion the Governor is
about as well known to the people as
either or all of the newspapers and
we believe they will prefer believing
Governor Ellerbe's statement. It
may suit the purposes of a certain
class of politicians and newspapers to
keep up friction, and in this Metro
politan police matter it looks as if it
is about the only bone that they can
gnaw upon. If they only knew what
the people were thinking about them,
we believe a change of subject would
We have no doubt that Mayor
Smythe is honestly mistaken in his
understanding of what took place in
the executive chamber and we be
lieve the Governor gives him credit
for being honest. The newspapers,
however, would have it "that there is
a lie out" and the Mayor did not tell
it. All the same, the Metropolitan
police is still on guard and very
likely to be for some time to come.
SOMETHING TO KNO W.
It may be worth something to know that
the very best medicine for restoring the
tiied out nervous system to a healthy vigor
is Electric Bitters. The medicine is purely
vegetable, acts by giving tone to the nerve
centres in the stomach, gently stimulates
the liver and kidneys, and aids these or
gans in throwing off impurities in the
blood. Electric Bitters improves the ap
petite, aids digestion, and is pronounced
by those who have tried it as the very best
blood purifier and nerve tonic. Tfry it.

During the winter of 1893, F. M. Martin,
of Long Reach, West Va., contracted a
severe cold which left him a cough. In
speaking of how he cured it he says: "I
used several kinds of cough syrup but
found no relief until I bought a bottle of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, which re
lieved me almost instantly, and in a short
time brought about a complete cure." When
troubled with a cough or cold use this
remedy and you will not find it necessary
to try 'several kinds before you get relief.

years and cn.autly grown in favor and

Effect of The Turko-Greek War.
Last week we gave an account of the dis
turbance existing between Turkey and
Greece, and briefly related the causes which
led up to the hostilities, and also stated
that the whole world was looking on in
atazement and speculation as to what the
outcome would be and predicted that much
bloodshed would probably result. our
predictions have been verified. Since our
last writing the Greek troops have invaded
Turkish territory in the provinces known
as Thessaly and Macedonia, and some very
hot fighting has been done. The policy of
thec Greeks ever since the first of the trouble
on the island of Crete has been vigorously
aggressive. On last Friday and Saturday
some very hot fighting was engaged in, and
thus far the Greeks seem to be on top. The
Greeks estimate that the killed and
wounded among the Turks in the recent
battle was about seven hundred, but more
conservative estinrates place the losses not
quite so great. The situation in Europe is
now becoming serious. Turkey has with
-drawn her minister to Greece and sent the
Grecian minister to Turkey home, and has
[also given all Grecian merchants in Turkey
fourteen days in which to wind up their
business affairs and leave, thus severing
all diplomatic and commercial relations
between the two countries. A most bloody
war seems imminent. It is surmised that
should the six gre3at powers become drawn
into the trouble, Germany, Austria and
Russia will side with Turkey, while Eng
land, France and ]taly will espouse the
cause of little Greece. Should a general
- war break out it. will have a great effect
upon the markets in this country. The
cotton market would hardly be much
affectedl unless the war assumed such pro
portions as to cause England to draw large
from her citizenship and put them in
t'he field after exhausting her army, Eng
land being the chief manufacturer of the
six. But this is a condition that would
hardly be probable, and the English fac.
- tories'would likely run on just as before.
With the grain market, however, things
would be different. A general war would
mean large exportations of wheat, corn
ani pork, and as a consequence these
arties would rise materially. Bat be tbhe
coequences as they may, as some old
entlman expressed it a few years ago.
