The past week has been one of tant
alizing reports, one day a reported
naval battle had taken place and the
next day it is denied and so it goes.
The Spanish fleet appears to be keep
ing our men guessing. Today our side
claims to have Cervera bottled up in
the harbor of Santiago de Cuba
with no possible chance of getting
out-a repetition of Manila is confi
dently expected, that is as far as the
newspapers are concerned. Every
thing is in such an uncertain condi
tion that it gives the newspaper
dreamers a fine opportunity to give
vent to their skill of manufacturing
battle stories which never take place.
We are of the opinion that the Span
iards have eluded the vigilance of
the American's and will before long
strike a severe blow in some unex
pected quarter. Time has at last giv
en us a story of the battle at Carden
as, which we put considerable faith
in. It will be i emembered when that
battle took place, our side claimed to
have killed several hundred of the
enemy, with a loss of only five Amer
icans, it turns out now that only nine
Spaniards were killed, including two
woman and three children. The
despatches indicate this morning that
the Piesident will make a second
call for volunteers which if true, does
not look as if we are carrying all be
Col. D. H. Tompkins, nominated by
the Prohibition convention for Secre
tary of State, has been withdrawn
from the ticket by order of the Pro
hibition Executive Committee, be
cause he has expressed himself in
favor of the dispensary system, and
opposed to prohibition because he
thinks it utterly impracticable at this
time. We do not understand the
taking off from the ticket the name of
Tompkins, when Timmerman and
Epton are in the same boat. Tim
maerman has also expressed himself
in favor of the dispensary system and
we think Epton has too. Why was
Tompkins nominated, in the first
place? Was it because he was chair
man of the Democratic party, and by
being at the head of the machinery
the Prohibition-politicians looked for
good results? Was Tompkins taken
off the ticket because he was not re
elected State chairman? Was it
because the Prohibition-politicians
thought that Tompkins could be of
no service to them after losing his
grip on the lever of the party's ma
chinery? Let us look at the action
of the Prohibition Executive Com
mittee and see if we are right in our
conclusions that the candidates on
the Prohibition ticket are knocked
out of the Democratic primary. The
Prohibition party, through their ex
ecutors, have withdrawn from their
ticket one of the nominees because
he declined to endorse their platform,
which is a declaration for Prohibi
tion. They have not only withdrawn
this regularly nominated candidate,
but they have formally notified him
of the fact that inasmuch as he does
not endorse the platform of the Pro
' ibition party, that party will not give
him their votes, and they proceeded
to fill the place upon their ticket wvith
another name. This was the proper
course for the Prohibition party to
pursue, it was their only consistent
course, and by taking this proper
course they have given the Demo
cratic committee a cue for action.
The Democratie Executive Commit
tee must be consistent also and for
mally notify the Prohibition party
that unless they endorse the platforrm
as enuinciated by the Democracy of
South Carolina, they cannot be per
mitted to participate in the prima
ries to be held under the auspices of
the Democratic Executive Commit
tee. The action of the Democratic
party has placed the Prohibitionists
into a distinct and separate party
and the Prohibitionists have no more
righ tin the participation of the Dem
ocratic primaries than would the Re
publican party have. This is so clear
that the Prohibitionists have recog
nized it, atnd they have cleared their
ship for action by taking off those
who favor the Democratic platform.
This is consistency, and they will
force the Democracy to be just as
The Democratic party in conven
tion assembled has spoken and its
voiec was clearly in favor of the Dis
pensary law, the convention was one
of the most representative bodies that
has assembled in Columbia in many
a year; throughout the entire pro
ceedings there was a marked absence
of any factional spirit, and with only
one trivial exception not the slightest
reference was made to factions. In
the convention were many who, in
davs before the existence of factions
were familiar faces in such bodies;
everything went on harmoniously, in
fact, there was every sign of a reunit
ed Democracy. The convention ad
opted a platform of principles as is
the custom of all political parties,
and one of the planks in that plat
form is a declaration in favor of the
Dispensary system. This plank was
fought with the prohibition strength
of the convention, aided by the pre
sence of candidates on the prohibition
ticket and the chairman of that par
tv's Executive Committee, and not
withstanding this influence the Dis
pensary declaration was overwheim
The question is now, what is the
status of the Prohibitionists. The
Democratic platform declares for the
Dispensary, can those who have been
nominated by the prohibition party
go into a Democratic primary, antag
onizing the platform of the Demo
cratic party? In our opinion no man
or set of men have a right to partici
pate in a party election unless they
subscribe to the tenets of that party.
The platform of the Democratic par
tv of the nation declares for silver,
will anyone'contend that a believer
in the gold-standard would have a
standing among the believers of free
silver. The prohibitionists have put
forward a ticket subject to the action
of the Democratic party, we take that
to mean, they are pledged to submit
to any action the party might take.
The party has now taken action and
if the Prohibitionists are true Dem
ocrats they will abandon their pre
sent pt.rpose of going into the pri
mary with a platforrm in antagonism
to the Democratic platform. The
coming primary is under the aus
pices of the Democracy as now or
ganized and no one has a rigL .o
ccme into its council who refuse to
submit to the will of the majority and
by the action of the convention the
prohibition platform together with
its already nominated candidates are
wiped out of political existance as
long as the party's declaration re
mains as at present.
Then t.gain, we do not see how the
nomir~ees of that party can go into
our primary at all, if they have any
regard for their pledges, because they
are by the constitution, required to
make oath that they are not the can
didates of any faction either privately
or publicly expressed. They are
candidates of a public convention and
they were publicly nominated upon
a party platform. The Democratic
party clearly forbids this, and it was
done to put a stop to these snap
judgment conventions and to fac
tionism. The prohibition candidate,
nominated by that convention cannot
as a conscientious man, and a man
fit to be trusted, take the pledge re
quired by the Democratic party.
ELLERtBE'S FRIENDS IN THlE 3M.
The political opponents are hard
pressed for capital when they endeav
or to make political capital out of the
incident of the committee oni plat
form and resolutions side-tracking
the resolution endorsing the admin
istration. It is the custom of all
political parties to endorse the admin
isration in power when the adminis
tration is made up of their party,
and when it was suggested that a
Democratic convention give comnpli
mentary expression of the adminis
tration in power, objection was raised
on the ground that such an expres
sion would not be fair to candidates
seeking State offces. The very men
wh-> made these objections disclaimed
any intention of throwing opposition
in the way of any member of the
present administration, but only ob
jected so that all candidates could go
into our primary on equal terms.
The friends of Governor Ellerbe were
largely in the majority in the con
vention, and they could have, had
they been .so disposed, carried the
resolution endorsing his administra
tion, but they did not insist upon it,
in the committee and virtually agreed
not to present the resolution in the
convention because it was after all,
an empty compliment with no bind
ing force. We know it to .be a fact
that some of Ellerbe's warmest sup
porters were among those who saw
no use to give the opponents of the
Governor an opportunity to cry
"snap-judg ment" and they espressed
a willingness to not have the endors
ing resolution presented at all.
The State Executive Committee
meets in Columbia next Thursday
night, June 2d, and at that meeting
the Prohibitionists will learn where
they are at.
Admiral Montejo the Spanish com
mander at Manila is now, so the des
patches say, to be court-martialed.

Gov. Ellerbe has appointed Maj.
James M. Eason Auditor for Char
leston county. This is a most excellent
appointment; it is a recognition of
business qualification to conduct a
business office. Mr. Eason has a host
of friends over the State who are pleas
ed at his merits being recognized.
Mr. Eason was for a number of years
the head of the well known firm Shep
herd Supply Company and it is plain
ly seen that by the selection of such a
man the Governor was not seeking
political advantage, but the best in
terests of the taxpayers of Charleston
We regret our inability to print
Senator McLauriu's speech delivered
in the Senate last Thursday. The
Record did not reach us in time but
we will do our best to give it to our
readers next week. Our Senator
sounded a warring to his collegues,
and took the ground that the pres
ent war could have been avoided by
proper action two years ago. He is
willing to provide sufficient means to
carry on the war, but he wants the
owners of bonds and stocks,the money
lenders and that class to bear the ex
pense. He is opposed to a tas on
articles of consumption. His speech
created a sensation and the newspa
pers throughout the Union are mak
ing extracts from it.
It will be remembered that last
year we did not support Hon. James
Norton for Congress, and our prin
cipal objection was that he was hold
ing ou to a high office while seeking
another. Mr. Norton succeeded in
convincing the voters of this district
that he was the proper man to fill the
unexpired term, then vacant. To
make a canvass of the district is ex
pensive and unless it can be shown
that he has failed to perform his du
ties in the short time he has been in
Congress, we think as an act of jus
tice and right he should be allowed
to enter the full term without oppo
sition. Congressman Norton has not
had time to do much for his constit
uents, but we can say that, in the
short time he has been in Washing
ton, he has eaten no idle bread and
he has done as much work as some
Congressmen that have been there
for years. We cannot with any de
gree of conscience give opposition to
Congressman Norton, not even if a
personal friend comes into the race,
and we believe the people of Claren
don, knowing their love of fairness
will frown down any opposition for
the full term.
The News and Courier, in writing
about the State convention, appears
gratified at the "dismal failure" of the
"one effort" that "was made to dis
turb the general harmony of the pro
ceedings by an appeal to factional
feeling." It was indeed gratifying to
all of us that any effort "to appeal to
factional feeling" was put down, not,
however, by those who feared the
Charleston Conservatives "are weak
ening," and those who wanted "to
see Charleston send a solid anti-Till
man delegation," but it was promptly
ut down by those who are sincere
in wvanting to keep the Democratic
party united. Had the News and
Courier administered a rebuke to the
politicians of that city who had no
better sense than to seud a delega
tion to Columbia hampere-l with
aucalled for utterances, it would have
performed a duty it owed the Dem
ocracy of South Carolina; but in
stead, by its silence, endorsed the
wild and bigoted sentiment expressed
in Charleston's convention to "send a
solid anti-Tiliman delegation" to the
State convention. Its expression of
gratification at the "dismal failure" of
any attempt to inject factionalism
comes with poor grace arnd inconsist
ency. Why did not the News'and
Courier condemn the action of the
Charleston convention? Not having
done so, it should now take the posi
tion of the little boy the calf ran over.
lDearness Cannot Be Cured
by loedt a1plcations. as they cannot reach

ony one way to cure deafness, and that is
byv 'cnstitutional1 rem.edies. Deafness is
eued by an inflamed condition of the

When this tube gets inuamtned you have a
rublig sound or impl:erfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed deafness is the
result, and nless the intiauation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its nor

forever: nine cases out of ten are cansed by

Washington, D. C., May 21.-The
war drags. There is but little pros
pect now that our fleet will engage I
the Spanish fleet for sometime; and
the invasion of Cuba, as well as the
expedition to the Philippines, is lag
gard. At this rate, the war will last
forever: and that prospect can please
only those who want to suck Uncle
Saw's blood "in extremis." But
there are some people who are so
unpatriotic that they desire such a
state o: things. They hail with de
light this hesitating, dilly-dally-delav
policy of the Administration; for the
more delay there is, the longer the 3
war will last; and the longer the war
lasts, the more it will cost Uncle Sam;
and the more it cost Uncle Sam, the
more money they will make out its
prosecution-but such malevolence
and greed are crimes against the best
government on earth. War is too
expensive to be prolonged unneces
sarily: and the present contest is
costing Uncle Sam about $1,000,000
a day. If it is prolonged one year,
it will cost him $379,192,600, as fol

Now, Congress is at work on a war
revenue bill (now the unfinished bus
iness of the Senate); but the bill, as
it passed the House, purports to
raise only $100,000,000; and, as it
was amended by the Senate Commit
tee on finance and rep3rted back to
that body, it promises only an addi
tional $50,000,000-making $150,000,
000 in all, even if it passes both
Houses and becomes a law just as it
was reported back to the Senate.
But that is not at all likely, since* the
two Houses are far apart not only as
to the rates of taxes to be assessed,
but even as to the very theory and
subjects of that taxation-the Repub
licans wanting the tax placed upon
consumption, while the opposition
wants it placed upon property-values.
Granting, however, that the bill will
become law as it stands in the Senate
there will still be a deficiency, during~
the first year, of $127,167,803--to be
raised by the issuance of Govern
ment bonds; for, although the Dem
ocrats, Silver Republicans and Popu
lists in the Senate may be able to pre-r
vent the authorization of any further
bond issue, they cannot prevent
bonds from being issued. There is
an old law still in force under which
the Secretary of the Treasury can is
sue bonds to replenish the gold re
serve whenever it happens to fall be
low the the $100,000,000 mark; and
the Hannas, Morgans, Belmonts and
other money ghouls do not intend to
be deprived of this chance to suck
Uncle Sam's blood. They are bound
to have the bonds and they are sure
to get them, for the war revenue bill
is going to fall short of providing thet
necessary revenue, and MIr. Gage
(their plutocratic Secretary of the
Treasury)is even now reducing the
stock of gold on hand so that it will
be an easy thing for the blood-suck
ers to make a raid upon the Treasury
and force the bonds out. $42,4SS,
