IS ME THE MAN
Darlington has not, for many years,
presented a candidate for office be
yond her own borders. Circumstan
ces are now such that she feels more
than justified in doing so. Mr. 3. W.
McCullough, formerly of Greenville
County, now a Darlingtonianl, is pre
sentedf by friends frcnm both sections
as a candidate for the office of super
intendent of the Penitentiary. The
Press of Darlington and the people
here heartily endorse the candidacy of
Mr. McCullough. and hope to see
his election.-Cor. News and Courier.
We remember during the dispensa
ry troubles in Darlington, there was
a McCollough who made himself
quite conspicious in stiring up trou
ble, and was among the number that
followed the Constables to the depot
which precipitated the riot. It is
said, that at the first crack of a rifie
McCullough outran a pair of horses
which had become frightened by the
noise of the guns. Is he the same
McCullough? If he is, somebody
ought to tell him that the guards at
the penitentiary tote ridles and his
nerves are liable to get such a shock
that the high brick walls may not be
able to hold him at his post. That
McCullough is too nervous.
The Maria Teresa, one of the Span
ish war ships that was sunk at Santi
ago has been raised and is now on
her way to the Norfork navy yard.
Senator Marion Butler of North
Carolina, the Populist leader, has an
nounced himself for "white suprem
acy" and will co-operate with the
Democracy to restore "white man's
rule" in the only Southern State
where negro domination exists.
Judge C. P. Townsend, assistant
attorney general, has resigned his po
sition and accepted a private secre
taryship under Senator John L. Mc
Laurin. Judge Townsend is one of
the ablest lawyers in the State and
we have no doubt but that he will
find a profitable field for his profes
sion in Washington.
There is a man living in Alabama
by the name of Dunning, who claims
that he is the author of Senator Mc
Laurin's speeches. He has written a
letter to the Greenville News in which
he threatens to bring suit against the
Senator. WVe do not know who is at
the bottom of this devilment, but its
dollars to doughnuts that dirt is at its
The occupation of troops in Colum
bia means a regular windfall for the
business interests of that city this
winter; atout $75,000 each month
will be paid out to the soldiers and
three-fourths of that amount will be
spent right there. This is from one
brigade only; if there should be an
other sent as is very likely, the
amount of business will be increascd
accordingly. Columbia should al
ways feel under obligations to our
United States Senators, for it was
through their efforts this golden op
Charleston's "Fall Festival" was a
grand success and the visitors from
all over the State came away highly
pleased with the way they were en
tertained. There was not as large a
crowd as heretofore, due principally
to the depressed condition of the peo
ple's finances, but those present agree
that Charleston maintained her well
earned reputation for hospitality on
the European plan.
Senator McLaurin is in North Car
olina raking the welkin ring with
Democratic doctrine, and his speech
es are having the effect of bringing
back into the fold, hundreds who
wandered off into the populistic camp.
When it comes to making a fight for
white supremacy McLaurin and Till
man are heavy draught horses that
will drag the people of the Old North
State from the mire of despondency.
The State Fair opens 14th inst., and
continues to 18th inst. inclusive. The
management has gone to extra ex
pense to provide entertainment for
the vast crowd expected, and already
additional help has been employed to
arrange for the exhibits. It is expect
ed that the exhibits will be larger
than any year heretofore and the
best attractions that can be, are being
secu.ed to furnish pleasure and amus
ment for the crowds.
The newspapers throughout the
State are indulging in a lot of hypo
critical rot about the Edgefield lynch.
ing. Those Edgefield people knew
their business and they attended to
it. Now, those editors whose nerves
have been so terribly shattered be
cause of the lynching of three negro's
for the foul murder of an innocent
lady on her way home to her children,
had better go over to Edgefield and
deliver a lecture to the "mob" instead
of giving their readers a dose of their
Senator George F. Hoar, of Massa
chusetts, the Nestor of the United
States Senate is to deliver an address
before the Charleston New England
Society. Last year we believe it was,
that Col. R.B. Watson of Ridge Spring
was a guest at this distinguished So
ciety's dinner, accompanied by the
distinguished editor of the News and
Courier. Colonel Watson was not
the principle orator of the evening,
but he orated just the same, and it
did'nt make him governor either. Hey!
It is very evident that Colonel yames
H. Tillman and editor N. G. Gon
zales have very little love for each
other; the antipathy dates farther
than the organization of the first reg
iment. We remember having heard
of Colonel Tillman's rejection as a
member of the Columbia club, or the
South Carolina Society and a duel1
between he and the editor of the State
was looked for-it did not come off.
Then a little episode in a Washington
barber shop was not calculated to
cause these gentlemen to have a warm
love for one another. A close reader,
(d dhe State can detect a spirit of par
:iality against Col Tillman.
Notwithstanding this, James Till
man will come out of the army, the
most popular officer of the First Reg
Uncle Sam is determined to scoop
in the Phillipine group of islands, and
thus give the American people more
intricate problems to solve. What
this country wants with a barbarian
population attached to it, is a conun
drum sure. The American commis
sioners, under the instructions of
President McKinley have notified
Spain that it is their intention to take
the entire group of Phillipine Islands,
and that the United States wvill assume
so much of the debt as was spent for
public works, and permanent better
ments. Just why the commission
agrees to assume any portion of the
debt is not made clear; it could with
as much grace take the Islands and
make the Phillipinos paid the debt
too. This new acquisition of terri
tory will be an elephant on the hands
of this country and before many years
roll around, we will be glad to un
load it for a price "less than cost."
The News and Courier of last Mon
"Senator Appelt's paper, THE MN
maTh TmD, says that the dispensary
won at the last primary election in
spite of the strong opposition to it.
Most people are of the opinion, howv
ever, that 'the champion of the dis
pensary' would have been defeated
but for the support of the opponents
of the dispensary who voted for him
upon the assurance that he would fa
vor high license legislation or local
ption in regulating the whiskey traf
fic. It is strange how the promises
that were made for the Governor on
the eve of the primary election are
All of such stuff as "most people
are of the opinion" etc, is the sheerest
kind of poppycock. The advocates
of the dispensary did win in spite of
combinations of saints and sinners,
politicians out of jobs, and those who
felt their grips upon their jobs loos
ening. We have personal knowledge
of the fact that men voted for Feath
erstone in the second primary, who
Iare strong believers in the dispensary
system, and they voted for Feather
stone for no other reason than Feath
erstone was a Conservative. 'These
same men were loud in their profes
sions to do away with factionalism,
at the same time whenever a choice
was to be made between a Conserva
tive and a Reformer, qualification and
merit was not considered, and they
voted for the Conservative. It was so
in the second primary, Featherstone
being a conservative got most of the
votes of that faction, while the Prohi
bition Reformers who voted for Feath
erstone were beguiled into the idea
that they were voting for a religous
principle. The opposition to the fac
tion in power, played a shrewd game
in the last primary, but they did not
win, nor can they play that game any
more. The scheme to capture the
government was so adroitly managed
that, before the other side could see
into the game, it had so completely
blinded a large proportion of our vo
ters, it was useless to undertake to
expose the hypocrisy.
We do not believe that Ellerbe re
ceived support from the anti-dispen
saryites to any great extent; possibly,
in the city of Columbia, somo oppo
nents to the dispensary system voted
for him, but they did so for other
reasons than any "promises that were
made for the governor on the eve of
the primary election." The large vote
given Ellerbe in Columbia was in ap
preciation of his friendliness to that
city, when Charleston was doing her
level best to get the troops mobilized
in that city. The anti-dispensary
newspapers may turn and twist as
they may, but the fact stands out that
a majority of the people of this State
want liquor controlled, and they be
lieve that under the dispensary sys
tem they have the stuff as near under
control as it can be gotten.
We do not believe as long as the
present system of drawing juries
stands, that violators of the dispensa
ry law can be convicted in Charleston
or Columbia, because the officials who
have the filling of the boxes in charge,
stand in with the men who violate the
law, it is for this reason that the dis
pensary law is not enforced in Char
l6ston and Columbia, where barrooms
are run openly.
We are satisfied that something
will have to be done by the coming
session of the General Assembly to
remedy the evils now existing with
regard to the enforement of the law.
That evils exist there can be no doubt
the constable system will have to be
completely revolutionized if not re
moved entirely and a new system

Theli Crowning Infamy of 'ThIis Admin
ist rat ion Exposed.
The crowning infamy of this Ad
mnistration of infamies has j ust come
to light. Thbis Administration is em
inntly one of infamies; from thle day
of inauguration down to this good
our there has not been one solitary
hour when the present regime was
free from giving its active aid and
good offices in furthering some gigan
ti steal, filehing enterprise or con
scinceless scheme of popular looting
plundering or robbing; but this
"bond-sndicate steal of Philippine
infamy" puts the blush upon the cheek
of any other attempt at bold, brazeu,
outrageous infamy ever before perpe
trated up)on the people of this coun
try under the auspices of their own
Government. Mr. McKinley and his
co-adjutors in crime actually propose
to pledge the credit,faith and honor of
our great Government towards guar
anteeing the payment at par of some
$40,000,000 Philippine bonds which
others have recently purchased at
about 15ents on the dollar. But it is
attempted to conceal the deep infamy
of the whole transaction behind a er
thin and transparent subterfuge-an
effort to do even and exact justice to
wards Spain by paying her "some
thing" for the Philippine. The secret
of Mr. McKinley's sudden conversion
to expansionist ideas recently is found
in his first grasping full knowledge of
the huge proportions and infamous
iniouity of this latest "highway rob
bery" Ibv the hami-strung and quar
terd in' the interest of public decen
y and popular safety. It is announc
ed that the Administrationi is agreed
that it is "only fair that Spain should
receive pay'ment for the Phili ppine-s,
whether it be $40,000,000, or more or
less." But the Administration's sud
den conversion and mysterous change
of front on the whole question is to
e found in the bond-guarentee
scheme. These bonds do not mature
for thirty- nine years yet and are not
held by either Spain or Spaniards and
it is only a subterfuge to say that this
immense bonus is demanded by Spain
before she will quietly submit to a
peaceful surrender of her Philippine
Why should Spain hang so much
importance upon the hundreds of
millions of debt hanging over her on
account of Cuba? Why should she
s positively and subtlety make this
the fulcrum-point upon which all fur
ther peaceful negotiations hinge?
Why should she give up Cuba and
still stand responsible for the hun
dreds of millions of Cuban bonds and
still say that she will suffer torment
and go the way to perdition before
she will give up the Philippines and.
stand responsible for some 840,000,
000? Has all of Spain suddenily gone
mad or has it beeni suggested to her
that the United St ates can be induced
to pay an immense bonus? There
can be but one answer to that ques
tion. Sagasta has never been ac
cused of beinganyhody's fool, and lhe
would have to be the veriest fool
upon earth to have taken the stand
which he is represented as having
taken without some such pointer as
the one evidently given to him. But
it is safe to say the American people
are on to the Administration's curves
or will be before this infamous scheme
has been finally consummated. Con
gress will be called upon in the pre
mises; the Senate will have to ratify
the treaty and the House and Senate
both will have to assent to the pay
ment of the bonus and appropriations
necessary to consummate the deal.
But are the people going to stand by
idly and see this infamy consummat
ed and raise no voice of opposition?
If they do they will have no one to
blame but themselves. If they are
going to leave all in the hands of an
Administration which is at the beck
and call of a gang of thieves, they can
expect nothing but robbery and filch
ing to characterize all the acts and
deeds purporting to be done in their
names and in their behalf. It would
be a good thing for the people to give
the Administration sone sort of hint
as to how they feel in the premises in
the fall elections. An out and out
popular repudiation of the Adminis
tration might save the people not
only money and taxes, but a vast
amount of trouble and everlasting
annoyances. Are the people all
asleep or dead or dumb?
