WHO'S 10 PAY THE FREIGHT
l satisfied with the remarkable
small vote given him for the legisla
ture by the people of his own county
who know him best, A. C. Jones,
State Chairman of the Prohibition
Executive Committee is again out in
the public prints; this time reaching
out for the United States Senatorship,
and in his card he places the blame
for Prohibition defeat upon Senator
Ben Tillman. Let us see, if our mem
ory serves us right, this Mr. Jones is
one of the "use-to-be's" who was giv
en an indefinite leave of absence by
the election of 1890, and from that
time on, we have read numerous ex
pressions of opinion in the newspaper::
from Mr. A. C. Jones; it was this same
Jones who claimed to have accepted
a position in the office of Secretary of
State (chief clerk) with the under
standing that he would retire with
his superior, and when Col. Lip
scomb's time was out, he declined to
continue in the same position with
Major Leitner, prefering to go into
business, and his salary, since 18S6,
has averaged at least one thousand
dollars a year more than his position
as chief clerk in the Secretary of State
office paid him.
Mr. Jones is a fine business man
and personally we esteem him high
ly; we have so expressed ourself on
former occasions, but his retirement
from politics when he left the office of
Secretary of State was not perma
nent, as his frequent letters to the
press show. After his entering busi
ness (becoming a drummer for North
ern dry goods firms) his passion for
politics wvas so strong, that notwith
standing the fact that he "averaged
at least one thousand dollars a year
more than 'his' position in the Secre
tary of State's office paid" him he dc
cepted a position in the engrossing
department, and thereby prevented
some persons who were not averaging
one hundredth part of the money that
was being made by Mr. Jones and
who possibly were in need and strug
gling to win bread for their families.
Mr. Jones, we judge to be a man fond
of politics, and the fact that his own
people would not support him, for
the legislature, doe's not daze him in
least as is shown by his announcment
as a candidate for United States Sen
ate. Jones is after Ben Tillman's
scalp, and with the hope that the Pro
hibitionists of this State will continue
to be huddled together to be voted as
the leaders may affix the label of pro
hibition; he comes out early and offers1
himself upon the sacrificial altar.
We invite the attention of our
readers to Mr. Jones' letter and we
will ask them the question, if they
cannot see more politics than "moral
principle" in the document. He is
willing for the sake of moral princi
ple to sit upon the platform of
Hon. 0. L. Shumnpert, and Col. Geo.
D. Tillman, thatjis to exempt coun
ties by a two-thirds vote from the
operations of a prohibitive law, pro
vided such counties would assume all
expenses for the enforcement of the
law and responsibility connected with
its sale. At one time we charged Mr.
Jones with being an astute politician,
but now we beg leave to withdraw the
word "astute" that the word politi
cian may remain without any pre
Dearness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion ot- the ear. There is
only one way to cure deafness, and that is
by 'constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of the
mucous lining of the Eustachian tube.
When this tube gets inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed deafness is the
result, and unless the infiamiation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its nor
mad condition, hearing will be destroyed
forever; nine eases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed
condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for any
case of deafness (caused by catarrh) that
cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure.

It is with much pleasure that we
note in the Columbia correspondence
of the News and Courier that Hon. J.
W. Kennedy of Clarendon will be a
candidate for the position of Sergeant
at-arms for the State Senate. The
members of that August body could
not, if they hunted the State over find;
a more suitable man for the place. He!
has the legislative experience of two
terms as a member of the lower house
the constitutional convention and he
has often attended the State conven
tions. Mr. Kennedylis energetic and
a sober man, if elected Sergeant at
arms, the Senate will have no reason
to regret their selection of him.
As a courtesy, we would be pleased
if our contemporaries throughout the
State would reproduce the above.
ISSUES OF THE CAMPA1N.
Ex-Governor Stoneof Missouri Discusses
the Political Situation.
In my opinion, the next Democrat
ic National Convention will again de
clare for the free coinage of silver
and it will be done by a practically
unanimous vote. The party, as a
whole, is intensely in earnest in its
advocacy of bimetallic coinage. It
will not recede from this position; it
will not go backward.
I believe the next National Demo
cratic Convention will also press our
maritime interests to the front. And
make the rehabilitation of our mer
chant navy a leading issue of the cam
paign. I say "issue" because any se
rious effort to rebuild our merchant
navy on a large scale will necessitate
a bold assault on those Republican
policies which have destroyed our
maritime interest for the benifit of a
special monopoly, and because the
existence of a great merchant navy
would of itself put forces into opera
tion which would soon demolish that
whole fabric of "protection" so artful
ly contrived by our Republican oppo
If we expand our maritime inter
ests, we must seek trade; if we covet
dowinion of the seas, we must control
the markets of the world. But this
we cannot do if we exclude others
from our own markets. If we put
"Private and Exclusive" over the
gateways to our ports, we cannot ex
pect a free welcome into the p?t.s of
The two things are inconsistent and
i.npossible. But we should fill the
se,s with our ships. What we need
above all things are markets. The
productive capacity of our country,
a.ready great beyond comparison, can
be quadrupled; and the inventive
genius'and business skill and enter
prise of our people are confessedly
superior to all others. If we under
take in dead earnest to do the carry
ing trade of the world and to control
the world's commerce, we will soon
outstrip all competition. Think what
we might do if we should do our
Let me illustrate: Of our enormous
cotton product we manufacture only
a small percent. (I do not venture
into statistics off-hand.) By far the
greater part is shipped abroad. fab
ricated in foreign mills, and made the
basis of a vast commerce for foreign
countries. All this cotton is manu
factured somewhere, it is transported
in somebody's ships, and the manu
factures are sold somewhere in the
markets of the world.
Why should not we manufacture
our own cotton, carry the goods in
our own ships, and sell or exchange
them ourselves to those who have
need of them? If this should be done
it would greatly enchance our man
ufacturing interests, give employment
to thousands, and by stimulating de
mand increase the market price of the
What is true of cotton is equally
true of other things. If we find mar
kets to absorb our products, the mills
and men to make them will follow;
they will all grow up together. Can
we find the markets? I believe we
can-in the Orient; aye, and in Eu
rope, too, for with our superior ma
chinery and workmen, we can pay
higher wages, and yet compete with
Europe for trade in her own markets.
But if we want the world's markets,
we must go to them. If we desire to
dominate the world's commerce, we
must be equipped for the work.
To be so equipped we must have
the greatest merchant navy afloat.
All this is good old Democratic doc
trine. It was a favorite policy of our
fathers in ante-bellum days. I believe
it will be again. And, therefore, I
believe the next Democratic conven
tion will push the revival of our mar
itime interests to the front and make
it a leading issue; and, incidentally,
will insist upon the speedy construc
tion of the Nicaragua Canal, and the
necessary enlargement of our navy.
To my mind there is so much of pros -
perity and glory to our country to be
gained by this policy, that I believe
it will command the support of the
people of all classes and sections when
it is fully presented and understood.
Apropos to this I believe it should
be the policy of the Democratic party
to have our government seek the clos
est alliance with Mexico and Central
and South America, and, I may add,
with Canada also.
We ought to form with them, or as
many of them as possible, a bimetal
lic union, and make bimetallism an
American policy in opposition to the
European policy of monometallism.
If we take the lead and offer the
proper inducments and encourage
ment, this can be done. We'can so
unite the Americans as to rule the
world, not by force of arms, but by
the arts of peace.
I believe I have indicated what will
probably be the leading issues of the
next campaign. There will, of course,
be other issues of more or less impor
tance, but I have said so much al
ready that I must not attempt to
further particularize. Those I have
named will be, in my opinion, the
issues in which the people will take
the greatest interest. Expansion of
the currency by the free coinage of
silver, and the expansion of commerce
by rebuilding the merchant marine
should be our battle cry. Respect
fully, WILL~IA J. SrOM:.

Ollis Cathcart, white, was arrested
in the criminal court Thursday, charg
ed with retailing liquor to students
at Davidson College. Judge Sutton
sentenced him to twelve months on
the chaingang. In his remarks in
this case, Judge Sutton said:
"The offenses with which this man
is charged, to my mind, are the most
serious, which are mentioned and
denounced by the common law.
"Davidson college, one of the old
est, most respected and influential of
our colleges for the education of the
young men and boys of this and
other States, holds out to the parents
and guardians of these boys whose
education it will undertake, that they
will be guarded and protected against
all vices and improper influences.
The officers and trustees of this insti
tution of learning have complained to
the court and solicitor, that the de
fendant has for a long time, and per
sistently, sold spiritous liquors to the
boys attending the college. Remon
strances were frequently made by the
officers of the college, praying this de
fendant to desist in his nefarious
business, or move away from the col
lege grounds and vicinity. Remon
strances have fallen on dead ears;
they have been made in vain. The
defendant is not a licensed retailer,
and if he was, it is unlawful for him
or anyone else to sell or give liquor
of any kind to mingrs-boys under
21 years of age. The boys at this
college are for the most part, away
from home, and deprived of the re
straining influence of father and
mother, sister and brother, and left
to the care of the college officers who,
in this case, have done all they could
without results, and now appeal to
this court for the protection of the
boys which the law affords, and they
shall have it. Our schools and col
leges must be protected. If men will
deal in spiritous liquors, let them sell
to the men of mature years, but for
God and humanity sake, spare the

Good looks are really more than skin

have a pinched look. Secure good health
and you will sur(.ly have good looks. "Elec

shaved, the man ef iron nerve sat with
a cocked pistol in each hand and told
me in a few hurried words that a posse
was pursuing him, bent on capturing
him, dead or alive, on the charge of
robbing a bank at .Russellville, a crime,
e averred, of which he was not guilty.
He wanted his beard shaved off that he
ight fool his pursuers if they should
happen to catch up with him. I finished
the job of scraping. The much wanted
individual thanked me, and, mounting
a horse, which had been hitched in the
rear of my store, bade me good evening
nd rode away. I didn't know for cer
tain who my visitor was, although I
suspected it, until the next day, when
heard that a man in the neighborhood
was telling that he had seen the elder

that was the last shave Jesse James got
in Kentucky, and I have never seen him
after that day. "-Louisville Post.

The Kind You Have Always Bought
En France It Is rrim to the Extreme ol
Literature in our country not having
as its aim either instruction or amuse
ment, but tho production of works of
art, is forbidden to French children. I
e:cept fairy tales. Perault has written
masterpieces; Mime. d'Aulnoy and oth
ers have fo'lowed him. The fairies of
other countries may have been more
poetic, but they have never been as wit
ty as the French. Leaving fairy tales
aside. children were obliged for a long
time to be satisfied with the very slight
collection bequeathed by Berguin,
Bouilly, Mme. de Genlis, those clever
people and who know how to coat a moral
lesson with a thin layer of pictures, as
bitter pills are coated with sugar. In
fact, this is the French parents' very
ideal in the matter of story books, and
to please them the lesson must not be
too well coated or hard to find. for the
spirit of investigation is not encouraged
in young readers.
During the past 20 years, however,
the meager library at their disposal has
grown wonderfully. Celebrated pens
have contributed toward it. We need but
mention Jules Verne, whose scientific
fairy taes have, alas, almost completely
dethroi:ed those that appealed to the
imagination alone. But neither in his
books, nor in those of any of his com
petitors, will you ever find what both
English and American writers currently
permit themselves to dc-namely, to ar
raign a relative, as, for instanc, the
wicked uncle in "Kidnapped," or to
make teachers hateful, or merely ridicu
Ious, as is the case in Dickens' -vorks.
This would be an outrage upon the re
spect due them in the aggregate. For
this reason translations are nearly al
ways expurgated. The friendly adop
tion of poor Laurie by the four girls in
"Little Women" would be considered
very unseemly. Yet, for all that, they
were good little New England girls. T.
B. Aldrich's "Story of a Bad Boy" was
deprived of one of its prettiest chaptcrs,
the one about his childish love for a big
girL. "It is useless, they say, "to draw
attention to that kind of danger."
Authors and editors are often greatly
perplexed before this severe tribunal of
French parents. The difference between
the books children are allowed to read
in France and those sought by their
elders, the contrast between the taste
less pap on one side and the infernal
spiceness on the other, must greatly as
tonish both English and American read
ers, who nearly all accept the same lit
erary diet, young and old, parents and
children.-Th. Bentszon in Century.
