The latest news from Havana fails
to throw any more light on the cause
of the blowing up of the Maine. Some
think it was an accident and that the
explosion was caused from spontane
ous combustion of coal; some think
it was done by the Spaniards who got
aboard the ship; some think it was
done through a sub-marine mire, and
some think they did it with a tor
pedo, and still others think that the
Cubans did* it because the American
ship was lying there watching them
in their struggle for liberty and would
do nothing to help them. In the
meantime divers are at work trying
to disclose the mystery, and others
are 'wanted to try and reclaim the
hundred or more dead bodies sup
posed to be still buried in the hull of
The trial of Zola, the French au
thor, continues in its farcial proceed
ings, and nowhere else in the civil
ized world would such outrageous
proceedings be tolerated. The pre
siding officer of the court openly bul
lies the defendant's counsel and
makes no secret of the fact that he
favors the prosecution, and the anti
semitic feeling is so stroni that law,
order and decency is not even consid
ered. When judges on the bench
play to the popular passions it cannot
be expected that a jury will be unaf
fected; therefore Zola will be found
guilty, not on the evidence, but to
satisfy an anti-semitic sentiment now
so popular with the ruling elements
of France. It was this sentiment
which banished Dreyfus and it will
also banish Zola.
Now that the General Assembly has
closed up-shop, it will take some little
time for the political manipulators to
gather themselves together to invent
schemes to produce issues for the
catching of votes. In the meantime
the voters will have an opportunity
to see the effect of the work done by
the lawmakers and then decide for
themselves who they shall select in
the coming campaign. There will be
a plenty of material to select from

in politics. There is one thing cer
tain, the people are not going to al

In a recent letter from Washington. DJ. C..
to an old friend, Major (G. A. Studer, for
twenty years United States Consul at Singa
pore, says: "While at Des Moines I became
acq'uainted with a lhniment known as
Chamberlain's Pain Balm, which I found
excellent against rheumatism as well as
against soreness of the throat and chest
(giving me :uuch easier breathing). J had
a toneh of pneumonia early this week. and
two applhcations freely applied to the throat
and feest relieved rnw of it at occe. I
would niot be without it for anyth ing-, for
The newspapers ought not take to
heart the failure of their bill in the
Legislature to have uniform rates for
legal advertising; instead, they should
be thankful that the General Assem
bly did not pass "an Act entiled an
Act to require newspapers published
in this State to be furnished free of
charge to all members of the General
Assembly." An Act to require rail
roads to give free passage was pro
posed, and no doubt would have
passed, but a few of the members at
tended church the Sunday before and
listened to a sermon "Thou shalt not
covet." These few killed the bill,
while some of the other members
were nosing about the sample room
of the State Dispensary sampling the
samples, and others were "monkey
ing" with actresses at one of the ho
tels. Fellows of the fourth estate, let
us not, because we failed to procure
legislation which was sensible, just,
reasonable, honest a.d for the public
good, begrudge these four-dollar-a
day statesmen of the privileges they
enjoy in sampling the samples and
their entree into the society of visiting
actresses, but rather let us rejoice
that we are allowed to exist, with the
hope that the majority in a South
Carolina General Assembly will some
day be made up of men of business
There appears to be blood on the
moon and it would not surprise us
for a "call to arms" to be made at
any time in this country, but at pres
ent, bes'ides the Maine incident, at
tention is drawn to the danger of a
clash of arms between Great Britain
and France in Africa. Two French
expeditions have established them
selves in British territory in the in
terland of Lazos, and Colonial Secre
tary Chamberlain is advocating a pol
icy of "no surrender." It is proba
ble that a serious crisis might be
reached at any time if detachments of
the opposing forces should chance to
have an encounter, as they are liable
to any day. Then, in the present ex
cited condition of France, war would
be very apt to follow. Other coun
tries having interests in Africa would
be on hand to guard those interests
and if a fight starts they may be
forced to take a hand. In the mean
time the jingo element inathe United
States are anxious for this govern
ment to have a tussle with Spain in
the hope that Cuba may be annexed
to the United States. Those clamor
ing the loudest for war would be the
last to volunteer, and if they did they
would run over each other in the
mad race for bosmb-proof positions.
We do not need a war nor do we
need Cuba, and for that matter we
can very well do without tbe Hawaiian
Islands. The population o~f both the
island of Cuba and Hawaii is made
up ten to one of negroes arid ever
since the war tL: y'ple of the South
have been trying to solve the prob
lem how to rid themselves of this ele
ment. If we could get these islands
and export the blacks we now already
have, there may be some reason to
want them but if we are to add to
an already overstocked element, we
would rather protest.
The destruction of the United
States battleship Maine continues to
be the subject of conversation in all
the public places, and it is particu
larly unfortunate that while there is
a strained relationship existing be
tween this and the Spaniah govern
ment, an attempt should be made to
turn the Maine incident into a griev
ance to precipitate a war between
these two countries. The blowing
up of the Maine was one of the most
horrible catastrophes that has ever
happened. Lives of hundreds of
brave men were extinguished in the
twinkling of an eye. The entire na
tion mourns the loss; the entire civil
ized world is in svympathy. The
Spanish government, although placed
in an embarrassing condition, as she
must realize that under the circum
stances she is an object of suspicion;
notwithstanding this, she does every
thing in her power tr. assist the work
of relief. There is an element, how
ever, clamioring for war, and the will
not tolerate the advancing of any the
ory which does not place the destruc
ti'on of our battleship as the work of
treachery. The Cuban Junta is send
ing out all sorts of inflammatory in
terviews and dispatches, with a pur
pose to arouse the American people
to a state of immediate action; they
wnt a mad, wild rush to be made on
Cuba and have the island wrested
from the clutches of Spain. Fortu
nately the United States government
is not made up of men who desire to
rush into war, and they are cautiously
moving on the international chess
board. Experts will examine into
the terrible disaster, and if they find
that it was not an accident, steps
will be taken to demand of Spain
an indemnity for the loss, and this
demand will be enforced in a manner
to justify the conditions.
IHE DISCOVERY OF THE DAY.
Aug. J. Boge], the leading druggist of
Shreveport, La., says: "Dr. King's New Dis
covery is the only thing that cures my
cougb~, and it is the best seller I have." J.
F. Campbell, merchant of Safford, Ariz.,
writes: "Dr. King's New Discovery is all
that is claimed for it; it never fails, and is
a sure cure for consumption, coughs and
colds. I cannot say enough for its merits."
Dr. King's New Discovery for consumption.
coughs and colds is not an experiment. It
hs been tried for a quarter of a century,
and to.dsy stands at the head. It never dis

The State printing has been award
ed to the Bryan Printing Company
and it is well, for the reason that it is
now out of politics. But we would
like to know bow the committee
awarded the printing to a concern
which was not the lowest bidder.
According to the law, the lowest
bidder was to have the work and we
are informed reliably, that the Bryan
Company was not the lowest bidder.
We can not approve, nor will the
people approve, of the defeat of a res
ponsible bidder to gratify prejudice.
The Columbia State bid several
hundred dollars lower than the
Bryans, and with the bid offered a
gilt edge bond; notwithstanding this
by a 7 to 6 vote the contract was
awarded to a less politically offensive
concern. We regarded the letting
out of the printing contract a busi
ness proposition and politics should
not have had any place in its consid
eration, but it is plain, that it was a
huge factor, and the people are sim
ply mulct to the extent of several
hundred dollars in order that the
personal spleen of a majority of the
committee may be gratified. All
such things come out straight in the
washing, and when the people are
shown that their professed friends
are in reality their enemies, some
thing will drop. Politicians may
play their little game of politics and
tickle the people, but when they are
undergoing the tickling process with
one hand and with the other they are
pilfering the people's pockets, the
game will have an abrupt ending and
the punishment is bound to be sure
and swift The committee to award
the printing had no more right to
award the printing to the Bryans than
they had to the Register or a concern
not listed among the bidders, because
the law made it mandatory, not dis
cretionary, for the contract to go to
the lowest bidder.

Some Interesting Legislative Aftermath.
'What Was Done at the Recent $es
sion--Suggestions About the
One of the shrewdest plans yet
adopted to boom a favorite candidate
was invented by Mr. Hartwell MI.
Ayer; the plan is disclosed in a letter
sent us with a request to publish.
The letter is interesting reading, even
with the trick card he plays upon the
innocent newspaper fraternity, but
he will discover that Mr. Mayfield,
the eagle of Bamberg that "lit" so
ignonimously at York last summer,
will not do much effective screeching
in the coming campaign. He will
also be convinced before the summer
is half over that Governor Ellerbe is
the livliest candidate in "failing
health" that ever dared to face the
scheming politicians in this State.
Celumbia, S. C., Feb. 19.--The ses
sionl of the legislature which has just
adjourned has been remarkable for
one thing-it has done literally noth
ing. In this its record is cleaner
than the record of the session preced
ing it. This is not because the mem
bers of the body did not (do their
duty, for they were as earnest and
conscientious a body as was ever
gathered. They tried to do a great
deal, and the most interesting history
of the session is the measures it buri
ed. This is due to several causes,
partly because of the constitutional
restrictions on special legislation, but
mainly to the fact that there was an
uncertainty as to the temper of the
people and a feeling, whether coni
scios or unconcious, that there exists
in the minds of the people a deter
mination to shake out the dice-box
and call for a new deal all round, and
a desire to be beard from on many
suojects that need strong and some
times radical legislation. It seemed
best to the members of this body to
let things remain in statu quo until
the sovereignty of the nation could
There has also been a sentiment
rapidly gaining strength to change
the order of things so that the legis
lature would meet every two years
instead of every year, and the people
will probably be heard from on this
matter soon. The legislature is one
of the heaviest expenses of the State
government, and in the interest of
economy many people urge this plan,
and really there seems but little use
for annual sessions; for there is now so
little to be done on account of the
restrictions of the new constitution.
One thing that has been remarkable
about the session just closed is the
number of charters issued to large
enterprises, railroads and the like,
which shows a particularly healthy,
condition of financial affairs in the
State and speaks well for South Caro
lina's n arch of progress.
In spite of great opposition there
has been considerable tinkering at
the county government law. But
there has been shown a considerable
effort from all quarters to get the ad
ministration of our internal affairs on
an economic basis.
Among the bills of general import
ance passed was one bringing foreign
building and loan associations tinder

usury, which will prove a blessing to

The manufacture or 'istillation of

of a church or public school.
The Ashley fertilizer bill gives
South Carolina companies a hard bit.
It provides a new system of grading
goods, the first grade containing
more phosphoric acid than our rock
can produce. Lee county is the
child of this session. South Carolina
now honors the five great partizan
leaders in the revolution in her cou
tv names; Sumter, Marion, Pickens,
Lee and Horrv.
Another bill of general interest is
one making it a misdemeanor to beat
board at a hotel or boarding house.
The greatest interest has been man
ifested throughout the session in the
coming campaign. There were slate
makers galore around the capitol, but
they labored in vain. Politics are in
such a condition of chaos that it is
next to impossible to form a ring.
The people seem to have learned a
thing or two about rings, and they
don't fancy the dose particularly.
There has been a great breaking away
from old lines, and though the fac
tional leaders who have profited so
greatly by factional dissensions have
made noble efforts to mobilize their
forces, they might as well have de
voted their attention to herding rab
bits. The dispensary will be the
center of the fight. The dispensary
forces are the only ones organized.
The old liners will rally to its sup
port, and rumor says that Senator
Archer has been selected to wear the
mantle of John Gary Evans.
The local optionists, though in
greater force in the House, could not
accomplish any reform this year,
mainly through lack of leadership.
They will go into the fight next sum

shepherd. It is said that John -C.

standard, local option on one side and
high license on the other, but George

The local option men in the House
have urged Senator S. G. Mayfield to
enter the lists as their leader. Mr.
Mayfield is a young man, but has
long been one of the leaders of the
Senate. He is regarded as a coming
man and as the logical leader of the
local optionists. He it was who first
declared the impracticability of float
ing the storm-tossed hulk of the dis
pensary and prepared a bill which
was presented last year, allowing the
people to govern themselves and to
work out their own salvation in the
This bill has given general satisfac
tion and blazes the way to whatever
dispensary reformation will be ac
complished. Mr. Mayfield has not
yet declared his intentions. though
great pressure is being brought to
bear on him from all quarters, espe
cially from his home, for the people
of Bamberg and Barnwell counties
are very fond of him personally and
have great confidence in him.
R. B. Watson of Saluda will divide
the "truly loyal" vote with Senator
Archer oi- any other man who repre
sents that side of the question. Mr.
Watson is a very strong man at home
and nothing but good report of him
has gone abroad.
It is also suggested that our re
