The letter of Mr. A. C. Jones, State chair
man of the Prohibition Executive Commit

should have appeared in THE TImEs last
week, but was crowded out by more im

in this issue on our outside, and we are
satisfied it will prove a disappointment to
those who are earnestly advocating prohi
bition as amoral principle.
Judge . R. Dingle of the St. Paul sec

is thought to be incendiary.

Notwithstanding the depressed condition
f the cotton market, Manning is doing a
fine cash trade this season. There is not
an advertiser in this paper who is not do
ing a very satisfactory cash trade, and we'
have reasons to believe that some of our
erchants will make even larger invest
ents in printer's ink. There is no doubt
bout it, that a werchant who watches the
details of his business and has the ambi
tion to compete with others, sees tho wis
om of thorough advertising and makes his
nvestments accordingly. Watch the ad
vertising columns of THE Thnrs and you
will know who is up-to~ate and who does
not permit moss to grow on their backs.
The Republican party has determined to
take advantage of its large majority in Con
gress by encouraging opposition to the
Democratic nominees in this State. Con
;-essman Norton is to be opposed by Ju
nus H. Evans of Marion,formerly editor of
the Marion Star,an d who was an ardent sup
porter of Haskell in 1890. After the defeat
>f Haskell, Evans joined the Republici'n
party and from that time on he has been a
anger-on at the pie counter, but failed to
"git thar." His race now is built on the
hope that a Republican majority will listen
to a contest that he will probably make,
nd oust Norton to help swell their major
ity. Evans is a first cousin of ex-Governor
John Gary Evans and in appearance close
ly resembles him.

Du.ant has, in fact, been the manarter of
the concern for years and it is through his
excellent business qualifications that the
business has grown to its present propor
tions. He keeps any and everything in
the hardware line, and the housekeeper
can find every article necessary for her cu
linary departmeni. This establishment is
headquarters for sportsmimen's goods and
the material for wagons and farming imaple

like establishment in the State is conducted
more business-like, and all patrons are
treated with the utmost consideration.

This morning James Boyd, a very black
colored individual with an innocent and
meek-like countenance, came to town from
the Frank MIcLeod plantatioo, now owned
Iby Mr. M. Levi, and with him came a
woeful tale of trouble to the effect that
about fifteen white men went to his
domicile last night about midnight and
called him to the door. When he made his
appearance a y... was thrust into his
face and he and his wife were taken out
and he was held up, with :pistols and guns
and was forced to stand by and witness the
beating of his wife with a strap for what
these "white caps" claimed was "'scandal
izing a white lady's name." Boyd claims
the party were white men and that he rec
ognized them, but that he was not in town
fr a warrant.
