When the campaign meetings take place
in this county the people should not per.

sonalities. If they have any public issues
to discuss, give them an attentive bearing,
but if they have any private tales of woe
let them see in the beginning you do not
care to hear it.

The people of this county have long ago

not worth annoujicing in the county paper
is not worth supporting. Candidates, this

you may govern yourselves accordingly.

The State Snpreme C'urt, recognizing
the 14gal ability of Hon. Joseph 1F. Rhame,
appointed him referee in the now famous

this aopointment was made. and male
some mention of it, but we wero mistaken
at the time. The appointment was only
made lat week, and we are sire that Mr.

A tree is judged by the fruit it bears, so
is a merchant judged by the wanner in
which he conducts his business. When a
merchant undertakes to close himself up
into a shell like a cooter, it is not likely
that he will reach out very far for trade,
but when he comes out in the open and so
licits business and backs up that solieita
tion with keeping his promises to his pat
=as, success is bound to be his portion.
W. E. Jenkinson, a merchant full of atspi
ration aLd zeal, has stormed the heights of
commerce, and by force-marching he has
caused his opponents to supply themselves
with the necessary implements of up-to
date commercial warfare. It is now a sur
vival of the fittest, and Jenkinson is deter
mined, as the columns of this paper show,
to outstrip his adversaries. Ile is without
a doubt possessed of the qualities of lead
ership and if following sensible business
methods, that is to say, buying properly,
and knowing when to buy is the road to
success he is bound to "git thar." Jenk
inson has experienced the value of adver
tising and he would as soon be without
goods to sell, as to be without a medium
through which he could communicate with
the trading public. Like all up-to-date
business men, Jenkinson knows that a
business worth conducting is worth adver
tising and the merchant who wants to share
in the cash trade must not be afraid to let
the people know that he has goods to sell
and that he defies competition. Watch 1
Ienkinson's big advertisement and see how
e will endeavor to set the pace for others.

A Friend Pays Very High Tribute to

One of the candidates for State Superin
tendent of Education in South Carolina is
John J. McMahan of Columbia. Mr. Me
Mahan is a young man, perhaps not 35
yeirs old, but he has a gret deal of experi
ence. He is a graduate of the South Caro
lina College, has held the position of as
sistant professor of English in that institu
tion for a number of years was a promi

venLon, is an able and conscientious law
yer, a brave, fair-minded, intelligent man,
of whom all South Carolina may well feel
As a lawyer Mr. McMahan has never
neglected an opportunity to befriend the
poor and distressed. About a year ago an
operative in the L- cotton mill, on
account of some disagreement, decided to
quit his employment. Having dccided to
remove, he placed his scant furniture and
household goods in the depot for shipment.
The mill people not only refused to pay
him what wages were due, but also seized
his furniture in the depot and held it on
the belief that their 'ormer employee was
uilty of a breach of contract. I do not
doubt that they believed in tho honesty of
their intention, and it is not desired to cast
any reflection upon them. It was simply
in error of judgment. The man was poor
ind friendless. No lawyer in the town
wvould take his case, especially as he had
o money with which to pay his fee. He
then went to Columb:a and consulted John
This brainy and big-hearted young law
ver unhesitatingly accepted his case, al
Ehough the fee was contingent and the ex
pense of bringing suit considerable. In
ccepting the case, ho did not ask, is it
popular? The question uppermoet in his
alind was, is it right? And having decided
:hat question in th3 affirmative, he set to
work and, by his learning and eloquence,
he secured a verdict ia favor of his client,
who was awarded considerable damages.
A friend of the poor, the distressed and
he needy-educated, courteous and re
ined-no braver, nobler man could be elec

A Treaty of Peace.
ditor THE TInES:
From present indications we can all very
afely guess that the Spanish-American
var is now nearing its termination. With
he termination of the war every American
as something to be proud of. We can be
>roud and are proud of the success of our
rms. We are proud of the manner in
which our army and navy waged the war.
)ur army and navy have conducted their
yart of the conflict on a noble and high
lane of justice and humanity.
From the beginning of the struggle down
o the present time we are unable to recall
o mind a sinale act of barbarity or inhu
nanity inflicted by our troops on the ene
ies of our country. How striking the
:ontrast and how different the conception
)f justice and humanity between Ameri
ans and Spaniards. The Spaniards on
heir part have conducted the war more
ike savages than like civilized men. They
iave in time of action signaled out and
ired upon our wounded as they were being
orne from the field of battle. They fired
ipon the litter bearers bringing off the
rounded, and even fired on the Red Cross
fter seeing their badges which indicated
hat their presence was a mission of mercy
o minister to friend and foe alike.
With Spain the die is cast. Cuba and
~orto Rico are forever lost to Spain and in
.11 probability the Phillippine Islands be
ides. Spain has about staked all of her
>ossessions worth having on the chance
nd is about to lose the whole game. A
urther prosecution of the war on the part
i Spain would, we believe, be "a crime
ganst God and humanity," and every life
aken in the act would simply be so many
-ictims sacrificed without necessity. Spain
a her forlorn and desperate condition
>ught to reflect and without fnrtnier rash
ss at once accept the terms offered by our
overnment, and save the further effusion
f blood by joining the United States in a
>ermanent ratification of a treaty of peace.
