SHOULD TIE LIEN L.A BE
The general trend of public senti
ment seems to be it favor of repeal
ing the lien law. Will the Legislat
ure do it? Nearly every county in
South Carolina has given voice to the
idea that the lien law is not for the
people's interest and that our law
makers should wipe it from the Stat
In all agricultural sections credit
seems to be almost a necessity, and
if the lien law was to be abolished
the question would be, what would
become of that class of farmers who
have nothing but personal property
to offer as security to obtain credit?
We realize the fact that under the
lien law credit is too cheap, and many
a good field hand is spoiled because
he can give a lien, and the result is
he makes nothing for himself nor
does he pay his debts. It is all very
well for men who are able to help
themselves to cry out for the repeal
of the lien law, and if these men will
only arrange against any probable
suffering among those who must de
pend on the lien, then we will join
them in the demand. No man is
forced to give a lien unless his finan
cial condition demands it, therefore
we see no use to place an obstacle in
his way. The farmer that can make
his crop without a lien is fortunate:
and he would be foolish to place his
crop in jeopardy. At the same time
we cannot see why ha should under
take to place obstacles in the way of
his less fortunate brother.
In our ouinion it is not the lien
law where the trouble lies; it is the
management of the farmer himself,
and if our farmers will devote more
of their energy to raising such things
as they most have, instead of wasting
their toil upon cotton, they will find
that with the lien law or without it
they will get along much better. We
never did believe that our Legislature
can make laws which will affect the
price of produce, nor can it increase
nor decrease the quantity raised. All
these things must be done by the peo
ple themselves. We would hail the
day when every farmer could obtain
credit upon his honor; that day is
not at hand in this or any other coun
try. As with the farmer, so with all
classes. Credit is obtained, not upon
sentiment, but upon the solid basis
of security. The farmer is not alone
in having to furnish security; every
merchant, banker, broker, or any
other class that does business upon
borrowed capital. No man who has
money to loan will part with it upon
an empty promise; he must have
something he can get at in case of
default in payment, whether the de
fault comes from rascality, inability,
death or otherwise.
There was a time when everything
a man had was good for his debts,
and he could be jailed for debt. We
do not want to see a return of those
(days, and in our opinion if our law
makers 'get to tampering too much
with our credit laws, the tail of the
credit animal will be chopped off by
degrees, until the homestead exemp
tion is wiped away, and when that is
gone jailing for debt will follow.
If the lien law is working a hard
ship upon the people, let those who
must give liens say so and ask for re
lief. At present the demand for the
repeal comes from those able to get
along without such credit.
There is an idea abroad that if the
lien law was abolished, it would force
a plenty of labor by making many
who now run farms go into labor
contracts. If there was no other rea
son for being opposed to the repeal
of the law, this would be sufficient;
this country has progressed too far
for us to now go backward. If a law
was passed by which men would be
forced to go into labor contracts, it
would not be long before thousands
of poor white men would have to
sign contracts in order to ootain meat
and bread for their families. It is
not necessary to undertake to show
what would follow. If oppressed by
the lien law, where would they go for
relief? Certainly not to the ballot
box, because if they have not corn
plied with the law and they cannot
read and write, the ballot box is shut
against them. The trend of legisla
tion is not in the interest of the poor
man. There seems to be a desire of
selves, and not enough attention is
given those who need help.
We hope the Legislature will act
wisely in this matter, and before tak
ing any definite action, ascertain
whether or not the lien law is op
pressing those who live by it.
If those who want to do something
for the poor people, will induce our
land owners to reduce the price of
rent it will go a long way towards
giving a needed class relief.
Governor Ellerbe's message to the
Legislature appeared in the daily pa
pers this morning, and we regret ex
ceedingly that we are unable to give
it to our readers in this issue, but in
our next we will. We want every
body to read it and digest its con
tents, and then lay aside all preju
dice. If they will do this, we are sat
isfied they will agree with us that it
is a State paper worthy of the man
whom the people elected to the high
est position in their gift. The Gov
ernor does not make his message a
stump speech, as is customary with
many chief executives, but from the
start to the finish he deals with the
vital matters now needing the atten
ion of the General Assembly. The
paper shows careful preparation,
:houghtful consideration of the peo
ale's interests, and an earnest desire
:o procure such legislation- as will
benefit all classes of people. Those
>pposing the Governor will of course
ind fault with his dispensary views,
but he can well stand any and all of
their criticisms. The people feel sat
isfied that he is burdened with the
most provoking problems to solve,
mnd also, that they expect him to so
:onduct the affairs of State as to heal
the differences existing among the
people. No fair-minded man can
read Governor Ellerbe's message and
:barge him with being a politician.
Every utterance has in it the sound
of the patriot and statesman.
Now that the General Assembly is
in session, we hope tye politicians
will not devote most of the people's
ime in making political fences.
The General Assembly convened
esterday. Just what it will do re
mains to be seen. The people would
be thankfnl if it would make the
shortest session on record.
The report of Superintendent W.
A.. Neal of the penitentiary proves
what can be done with a State insti
tution if managed with a business
ead. If all of our State institutions
~ould make as goodl showinlg, there
would be no complaint about high
Laxes There is no branch of our
overnment but what can curtail its
expenses without impairing the offi
~ias of the service, and if more atten
tion were given to looking afte: the
details as is done by Superintendent
Neal at the penitentiary, the State
treasury would not be emptied as
>ften, and such a thing as having to
pay interest upon borrowed money
would no longer be the case.
There is a project on foot to throw
the election of circuit judges to the
people, and if it succeeds, then good
ve to the sacredness of the bench.
A judgeship is altogether different
From any other public position. The
man who is thus honored should be
free from the obligations made in pol
itics. Wc believe our judges should
be selected from the purest men we
bave, and when once selected, they
should hold on for life, the same as
:he United States judges are selected.
[f the law could be changed so that
[udges would be elected for life,
many an able lawyer, now enjoying a
good practice would accept the posi
:ion; but where a judge must run the
gauntlet every six years, it deters a
maan with a good practice from con
senting to accept the honor, as he
loes not feel like sacrificing his prac
ice for an honor of so short a dura
ion. But whethe' judges are elected
for life or not, it will not have a ten
lency to elevate the bench if the ju
liciary is thrown into politics.
Now that the Legislature is in ses
sion, the people will be kept on the
tiptoe of expectation as to what will
be done to decrease the tax levy.
They are more irterested right now
i obtaining a relief from heavy taxa
:ion than they are in any other matter
:hat might come up for discussion.
We fear that our law-makers will at
:empt to do something with the dis
:ensary, and should they do so, it will
:nean a prolonged session and a piling
ap of expenses. It takes about one
housand dollars a day to run the
Legislature and at the present prices
f cotton and scarcity of money gen
erally, the people are in no mood to
have any more expense charged up to
them than is actually necessary.
The dispensary law is awvaiting ju
dicial action, and in our opinion it
would be a waste of time to bring the
matter up in the present session of
the Legislature. It would be the
wiser plan to attend to only such
matters needing immediate attention
nd then adjourn. If the United
States Supreme Court sends down its
decision against the State, the Gov
ernor can immediately reassemble the
Assembly for such action as will be
necessary, but if there is any tinker
ing with the lawv now it may be mak
ing bad worse, and add additional
complications to an already coat of
Noise and the Death Rate.
It is of course inipossible to state en
actly what part noise in New York city
plays in the death rate and the sick
list, but every physician knows it must
be considerable. Often the physician
in his daily rounds finds it necessary
to prescribe "perfect quiet" in order
that the flickering spark of life re
maining in the patient may be brought
back to a healthy flame, yet in nine
cases out of ten that perfect quiet he
deems so important cannot be had
owing to the noise from the street. Es
pecially is this true in warm weather,
when windows must be kept open.
The makers of unnecessary noise in
New York are not confined to any one
class. All are more or less guilty, from
the church people to the organ grinder
and the street peddler. Any one who
studies this subject and observes care
fully will be astonished and disgusted
at the reckless disregard of each for the
health, peace and comfort of all others.
If you should go for a walk in Fifth
avenue on a fine afternoon and all sorts
and conditions of people were to begin
to assault you with switches, you would
call the police. They would be prompt
ly arrested and properly punished.
What for? They have not killed you or
maimed you or drawn any blood, and
you are apparently none the worse for
these assaults. What they have done is
to irritate the nerve terminations of one
of your five senses-viz., that of touch,
or the tactile sense, and through the
nerves of this sense they have made you
conscious of painful sensations. This is
exactly the treatment you do receive
from these same people by their un
necessary assaults on another sense
viz., that of hearing. But should you
ask the authorities to interfere in this
case, you would likely be arrested your
self and your sanity inquired into.

Unhappily for naval science-happily
for all other interest:-experience dur
ing the 40 years of the life c i cdern
warships has been ra:' and ineic ]usive.
The effect is that the opinion of naval
architects and naval officers is left halt
ing between experiment and experience.
And the very infrequency of actual
fighting at sea during a period in which
the navies of the world have been com
pletely transformed is liable to lead to
a one sided or vastly exaggerated esti
mate of the historical data at our dis
posal. There is a tendency to exalt the
weapon which has proved its efficiency
most lately into the one ponderable
factor beside which all others may be
The school of experiment needs correc
tion, but the school of experience often
lacks balance. It is apt to forget that
the experience which it generalizes is
always fragmentary and often irrele
vant. Thus, after the American civil
war, with its Merrimac and its Moni
tor, armor became the one thing need
ful. After Lissa, because Tegethoff hap
pened to sink the Re d'Italia, the ram
was to be the deciding factor in all fu
ture combats. The engagements on the
Danube and Black sea coast in 1877 and
1878 brought about a similar apotheosis
of the torpedo. And the China-Japa
nese war is likely to sow as confident a
conviction that the navy which has
quick firing artillery and high speed
has every necessary element of force to
secure an impregnable supremacy. -

Irinarch Ivansvich Vredensky was the
son of a poor but intelligent village
pope, or priest, who tilled his glebe to
feed and clothe his large family of
daughters and this only son, to whom
he still found time to impart the rudi
ments of education. Irinarch was a
sickly and lonesome boy, cut off from
all playfellows by his ascetic though
v.eil meaning father, and he grew up
to manhood in bitter poverty, having
sometimes literally nowhere to lay his
head. Yet, in spite of all obstacles, he
became a distinguished scholar, a versa
tile linguist and a beloved pedagogue in
the military schools at St. Petersburg.
He was growing in fame and favor
with the authorities and had been called
upon to undertake educational work of
the highest importance, when his blind
ness and premature death cut short his
brave career. His translations of Dick
ens, Thackeray, Fenimore Cooper, etc.,
are classical and laid the foundation of
the wonderful popularity which their
works still enjoy in Russia.-Notes and

"A new slang phrase is picked up
and worn out in a day in the great cit

traveler, "but sometimes years elapse
before they are ever heard in rural dis

ing camp in southern Oregon a few days
ago and was playing freeze out with
some of the natives. In the course of

bet. A big, red shirted Hoosier opposite
raised me. I raised him back, and he
came back at me with another raise.
" 'Well, I'll have to call you,' I said.
'My name is mud.'
"He raised up from his chair, seized
my hand in his big paw and shaking it
enthusiastically said in all seriousness:

It has recently been anounced that
the negroes of the south are turning
from land tenure to wage earning. Not
on the plantations. The movement is
from the plantations to the mines and
still more to the towns. One million
negroes are already in the towns of the
south itbove 4,000 in population, and
this, it is predicted, is the first long step
on the way to the cities of the north.
A vast urban proletariat is about to be
created. The black belt is to be vacated.
The black emigrant will pass out, and
the white immigrant will come in.
This through no compulsion. The black
ten:nt farmer is a failure. He seeks to
better his condition. He is capable only
of more muscle work. The mines want
him, and still more the cities want
him; hence, the north wants him, for in
tho north are the great cities. The line
of least resistance for the colored man
lies away from the plantations, partly
for social, but mainly for economic rea

the race problem of the south will be
solved, and a new agricultural black
belt will be secured. No new race prob
lem will be given to the north, because
in no one place is the ncgro likely to
reach a dominant percentage. The negro
in anything under 12 per cent diffusion
will create no race difficulty. Moreover,
the negro is best leveled up industrially
and otherwise when he has the maxi
mum of contact with the white man's
higher standards. So this change is
best, not only for the south, but for the
negro and for the entire country, and
the only thing required is "laissez

Catchup For Life.
When I was a boy, they spelled it
"catsup," but "catchup" will do for
this story. The article is made of toma
toes over in New Jersey, and has an
enormous sale. A dear old lady in Con
necticut heard of it, and, having a rep
utation in the neighborhood for making
catchup, determined to try it. A bottle
was purchased in the village, and on
the following morning Aunt Jemima
started for New Jersey. Arriving at the
factory, she called for the proprietor, in
formed him that his catchup was, if
anything, a little better than hers, and
as she didn't propose to be outdone at
home, she wanted his recipe. It was the
first time she had ever heard of a catch
up being better than hers. The proprie
tor said, smiling at her innocence, "My
dear madam, I cannot give you my
recipe, but if you will leave your name
and address I will see that you get as
many bottles of catchup every season as
you may want all the rest of your life."
She returned home only half satisfied,
but the first installment of a dozen quart
bottles eased her troubled spirit.-New
The Atlantic City Light.
The Philadelphia Record says: "The
light at Atlantic City, which sheds its
warning rays at least 19 miles seaward,
burns 2,200 gallons of oil every year.
Five wicks are kept burning constantly
in the lamp, none of which is less than
6 inches in diameter. The wicks, like
everything in the lighthouses, are of
French design, as the French lead the
world in such matters, particularly as
regards lensea. The steamer Armeria is
kept busy nearly the entire year supply
ing lighthouses with their needs, begin
ning in the south in the winter and
gradually workin'g her way north.
There are many other lighthouses along
the coast of the first order, like the one
at Atlantic City, which is known to
mariners as Absecom light."

"Lady B., Carlton House, Park Laine,

overdressed, dowdy lcoking woman re
ently gave to a fashionable west end
stationer to be engraved on 100 visiting
cards, and five quires of the most ex
pensive note paper.
The stationer, whose suspicions were
aroused, communicated with the police,
with the result that a watch was set,
and it was soon discovered that every
card and every piece of note paper were
being employed for obtaining goods and
money from the credulous under false
pretenses. The woman was no more
