THE GREAT DAWN IS BREAKING.
The only men in Charleston who
do not wish to see this county in ac
cord with the rest of the State are
those who hope to thrive on State
pap, and who would have no oppor
tunity of enjoying this succulent ar
ticle were they to depend upon their
own merits.-Charleston Post.
And this from the Post. Well! an
honest confession is good for the soul.
When we used to charge that it was
the politicians who, for selfish pur
poses, refused to be in accord with
the people of the State, the Post
rather resented the assertion. We
are glad that its eyes have at last
been opened to the real existing con
ditions, and that it sees the wrong
which Is being inflicted upon Char
leston county by her own political
pirates. To say that it is "those
who hope to thrive on State pap"
destroys the essence of the charge,
because those who are thriving on
"State pap" in that city are without
any power whatsoever to mould po
litical action in Charleston county,
and they are thereby powerless to
put Charleston "in accord with the
rest of the State," or out of "accord
with the rest of the State."
Nevertheless Charleston has been
for several years out of harmony with
the "rest of the State," and it has
proven detrimental to her business
and political interests. This sad
state of affairs is the result of the
manipulations of "the only men in
Charleston who do not wish to see
this county in accord with the rest
of the State are those who thrive"
on keeping up a constant irritation
because it is to their personal inter
est to keep city and State apart, and
if they loosened their grip and al
lowed the city and State to come to
gether to work for a common inter
est it would not be long before those
"who would have no opportunity of
enjoying this succulent article were
they to depend upon their own mer
its" would be jobless.
Keep up the fight so nobly begun,
esteemed contemporary, and the
work will arouse your readers to
wake up and scrape off the barnacles
which have fastened themselves to
the political ship and thereby ob
structed her from keeping abreast in
the progressive -race. Let Charles
ton get in "accord with the rest of
the State" and it will not be long be
fore trade will pour into her markets
from all sections of this common
LThe cost of the war with Spain will
probably reach $280,000,000, and the
revenues fall short of the expendi
tures. The cost of the wars of the
world since the Crimean war has
been $18,265,000,000, or enough to
give $10 to every man, woman and
child on the globe.
Senator John L. McLaurin appear
ed in the New York Herald recently
with a concise and forceful state
ment of the race problem in the
South. He informs the nation of the
true condition of affairs in North
and South Carolina, the outrages
of carpet-bag rule and what North
Carolina has endured, until patience
ceased to be a virtue. We repro
duce our junior Senator's paper on
the fourth page this week.
It will be a source of gratification
to learn that the Charleston Post has
at last consented to permit Charles
ton to become a part of the State
once more, and the delegation from
the unreconstructed city will con
sider all legislation on its merits and
not from a partisan standpoint. The
Charleston delegation, according to
the Post, will not oppose "adminis
tration measures," but will aid the
administration in all of its measures
which they find meritorious, all of
which is very nice, and a hopeful
sign that reason and common sense
will once more have its way with
that brainy delegation.
President McKinley's second an
nual message which was sent to Con
gress M'onday is a very long and dry
document, dealing with the war be
tween the United States and Spain,
and makes no recommendation, ex
cept that careful deliberation be giv
en to the important subject. Aside
from the war the paper deals consid
erably with foreign affairs; our inter
ests abroad and our relations with
Europe are carefully reviewed. The
President touches on many points of
national interest, and he makes but
few recommendations. It is a well
prepared instrument, conservative in
tone and will receive more than or
dinary attention on account of the
new conditions in American history
arising out of our present foreign at
Little Alphonso has been held up
by Uncle Sam and forced to relin
quish his hold on the Philippines.
"All's fair in love and war," and as
Uncle Sam set out to lick Alphonso
for "humanity sake, and coming out
winner in the scheme, it is but fair
that he should receive recompense
for. is "humane" labor, and the
Philippines, being a fine field to pay
political debts with official pap, he
throws Alphonso over the fence and
pokes $20,000,000 through the cracks
to sooth the little fellow's lascerated
feelings. Spain has accepted the
American proposition very much as
a victim looking down the gun bar
rel of a pisto' in the hands of a bur
glar whose terms are, "your valua
bles or your life." The Philippines
are ours and so was the elephant the
man's, who bought him cheap at the
auction and he wore out his exist
ence wondering, "what wlll I do with
it?" We are very much afraid that
some day, when the crowns of Eu
rope are beginning to wear loosely
upon the heads of the monarchs, a
conclusion will be reached that the
United States licked Spain for hu
manity sake, took Hawaii, Porto
Rico and the Philippines for greed
sake, and that European monarchies
must. combine to lick the United
Stafes for their crown's sake. The
taking of the Philippines will involve
this government into complications
which will require a tremendous
navy and army, and it is a question
whether the returns from the newly
acquired possessions will pay back
into the treasury the vast outlay
which will be necessary to maintain
the force needed at these varioud
points. The whole upshot of the
business is a larger navy and an in
creased standing army, which means
more ships and government con
tracts for political favorites, posi
tions for the payment of political
debts and heavier taxes for.the mass
es to struggle on under their burden
of low prices for produce and labor.
The anti-dispensary advocates are
advising the Prohibitionists to join
hands with the high license men to
destroy the dispensary. Will they do
it? If they do, what will become of
their boasted "religious principle'e"
The Prohibitionists stood before the
people upon a principle which ad
mits of no compromise with the ad
vocates of license. Suppose when
the Legislature meets Charleston's
high license men, and Richland's
high license men, caucus and pledge
to vote prohibition if the Prohibi
tionists will not vote for high license;
what a spectacle such a combination
would present before the General As
sembly. In our opinion the Prohibi
tionists will stand pat with no expec
tation of winning at this session, but
encouraged with the magnificent
vote given to their leader in the pri
mary, they will take their cause be
fore the people again.
The Columbia State is opposed to
the dispensary, so is the Charleston
Post and so is the News and Courier;
all of them favor license. These pa
pers are in the two largest cities in
the State, where the enforcement of
the law has never been seriously at
empted, except recently in Colum
bla Mayor Lipscomb has done a lit
le something in that direction. The
pposition of these city papers to thel
ispensary is not in favor of prohibi-l
ion,because they oppose prohibition
s well, but it is to bring back the
ld bar-room system made under the
~uise of local option with high li
If the Legislature were to grant lo
al option with high license it would
imply mean that Charleston, Co
umbia and a few other whiskey con
roled towns would vote themselves
into the license system and the old
ar-rooms that now are hidden be
ind closed doors would open up as
n the days before the advent of the
ispensary. But these advocates of
local option and high license will say
those who are granted license will
iee that the liquor law is not vio
lated and the city authorities will
nforce the law." We admit that the
iity authorities will see to it that no
iquor is sold 'without a license, but
we know that the city authorities
will not attempt to enforce the dis
ensary restrictionis. The result will
e that once a license is obtained
from the city authorities to a private
ndividual, the whole moral force of
the dispensary law is destroyed,
The anti-dispensary advocates, in
their desire to destroy the dispensary,
will not agree to submit the question
to the people, that they might say
'Dispensary" or "Prohibition." Oh,
o, unless Charl.eston and Richland
:an get the special privilege of "high
license" added. With "high license"
added for Charleston and Richland
the strong anti-dispensaryites would
join with anything to have the ques
tion submitted. In other words,
those two cities want the privilege
of selling whiskey and will resort to
any means to accomplish the pur
pose. _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Deafness Cannot, Be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of 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 inflamiation can tbe
taken out and this tube restored to its nor
mali condition, hearing will be destroyed
forver; nine cases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing but an infiamed
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.

News From Pine Grove.
Editor TE. TIMES:
Things are taking on new life in
the Pine Grove section, especially in
church and school matters. Messrs.
Smith and DuBose are giving some
of their best work to the church
building with paint and brush, mak
ing a beautiful structure still more
beautiful; and after a few more days
of sunshine have passed over we
shall indeed have something to feast
our eyes upon. Neither has the
school building been forgotten, for
we now have an attractive open
porch in front, surmounted by a
handsome bell tower.
It was with pleasure and with
thankful hearts that we all assem
bled to hold a Thanksgiving service
on last Thursday, for truly if any
community has reason to be thank
ful for showers of blessings that com
munity is Pine Grove. The main
feature of the exercises was an ad
dress by Prof. C. B. Smith of Wof
ford College. He made some very
forcible hits, and his words were
such as to arouse greater efforts along
all lines of intellectual and moral im
provement. A careful observer can
already see some of the good effects
of his address, and it is hoped that
we can have him with us again soon
to give us some more of his soul-stir
Rev. W. E. Wiggins, our pastor
here on New Zion circuit, goes to the

made many friends during his year's
stay among us, and has found his
way into the hearts of many of his
people. We long to see his pleasant
face and have him look in upon us
occasionally to cheer us up when
things are not exactly right.
Cold weather is upon us and many
hearts are made glad, for cold weath
