right thing to tender his resignation.
Congress bids fair to be a speech

treaties will have a hard and a stum
py road to travel. Quite a number
of the Senator's are opposed to the
expansion theory and the opposition
is not confined to party, some of the
most prominent Rspublicans are op
posed to the administration's policy.
It is not a question of party politics
but one of statesmanship.
The Spartanburg Herald published
this interesting sketch of Methodism
at Campobello: The fourth quarterly
conference for Campobello Circuit
was held in Inman Methodist church
November 5th and embraced a three
day's meeting. Rev. A. 3. Cauthen,
the presiding elder, was present, and
in his usual pleasant and- business
like manner presided. Prof. Chas. B.
Smith, of Wofford Colloge, was also
present, and preached Saturday
morning and night and Sunday morn
ing to appreciative congregations.
The Lord's Supper was administered
after preaching Sunday, all the con
gregation remaining until after this
solemn sacrament. The Campobello
Circuit consists of six churches with
Rev. S. A. Nettles, pastor. This is
his second year on this Circuit, and
his report was said to be the best in
the history of the work. During the
two years two churches have been
completed and dedicated, and a third
has been much improved. Five sun
day schools are in operation; 134
members have been added to the
church, and 24 infants have been
baptized. The financial reports show
an increase of about 50 per cent on
pastor's salary and about 40 per cent
increase on the various benevolent
collections. Heretofore the Circuit
has been renting a parsonage at
Landrum, but the indications are
that early in the coming year a par
sonage will be built, and a majority
seem to favor its location in Campo
bello, which is in the centre of the
Circuit. Our Methodist friends are
making decided progress in this part
of the moral vineyard.
(From our Special Correspondent.)
Washington, Dec. 10.-It is said
that, while the President favors the
famous New York lawyer, Joseph
Choate, for the vacant ambassador
ship to the Court of St. James, no
appointment will be made until the
treaty of peace with Spain has been
signed; and, should no complications
arise, it is said to be the purpose of
the President to nominate Mr. Choate
for this important foreign mission.
If, however, any serious complica
tions should arise, it is thought that
Andrew D. White (at present ambas
sador at Berlin) will be transferred
to the British Court because of his
peculiar fitness for that delicate and
important mission. Mr. White has
studied the European situation for
years and is supposed to be one of
the most accomplished diplomats in
It is said that Senators Hanna and
Elkins, together with the Rockefel
lers, have planned a master scheme
by which they hope to turn an os
tensibly public enterprise to private
account in a way that will put a few
more millions in their private purses.
The scheme is to secure of Congress
enormous appropriations for the im
provement of the harbor and water
front around Cleveland, Ohio, 'with
the ultimate purpose of making that
city the commercial metropolis of the
Great Lakes. the most important
shipping and railroad terminus of
the Northwest. In otner words, by
and through Government subsidy,
to make Cleveland the successful ri
;-al of the robust and thrifty "Windy
City" The first premonitions of this
sinister gigantic purpose and deep
laid scheme came to the surface when
it became necessary to select a new
chairman of the House Committee
on Rivers and Harbors, to succeed
Mr. Hooker who resigned his seat in
Congress to accept a seat on the New
York State bench. Mr. Cooper, of
Wisconsin, was the second ranking
republican member of that commit
tee and, according to all precedents
should have been the new c-hairman;
biut Senators Hanna, and Elkins made
such an earnest determined effort
upon Speaker Reed in behalf of the
appointment of the man whom they
had selected for the purpose of sub
serving their designs that Mr. Reed
extraordinary request, inasmuch as
it involved the overturning of a well
established custom of successorship
in the House committee-assignments.
But, after hearing whatever they saw
fit to tell him, Mr. Reed declined to
make the appointment of any one
without first referring the question
to the committee itself. That being
done, the two Senators worked so
hard and so effectively upon the per
sonnel of the committee that, when
it came to a final show-down, Theo
dore F. Burton, of the Cleveland.
Ohio, district, was the successful
man-the man for whom Hanna and
Elkins were working. It will be a
strange thing, therefore, if the next
river and harbor bill does not carry
with it the foundation for some
stupendous quasi-public enterprise
with immese personal-incidentals
The cities of Chicago, Detroit, Buffa
lo, Duluth. among others of less im
portance, will oppose the consumma
tion of any such a scheme under the
protectorate of Congress and will
keep "a weather e ye" upon the
"scheming syndicate." Senator Ma
son, of Chicago, says: "If such a
scheme is really in contemplation,
we will give those behind it a big run
for their money when the river and
harbor bill comes before the Senate."
But, on the other hand, it is said that
practically the entire delegations
from Ohio and Pennsylvania are in
active sympathy with the project
and have secured enough promised
support to insure the passage of a
bill carrying the means of consumma
ting it through both the House and
Knowing ones say, however, that
this scheme is only the opening-bud
of what may be expected from the
great money-combinations and trust
syndicates of political power before
the last trump-card of the "wirepul
1ers" hasbeenplayed. Itwill be well,
therefore, for the people to keep their
eyes upon this singular combination
of two Senators and the greatest
money-kings in America; for such
combinations are not formed for the
good of the general public: and the
humble citizen who thinks they are
is surely not wise. Look-out for Han
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 inflamation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its nor
mal condition, hearing will be destroyed
forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed
condition of tie 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.

Two Pointed Questions Answered.
What is the use of making a better article
than your competitor if you can not get a
better price for it?
Ans.-As there is no difference in the
price the public will buy only the better, so
that while our profits may be smaller on a
single sale they will be much greater in the
How can you get the public to know your
make is the best?
If both articles are brought prominently
before the public both are certain to be tried
and the public will very quickly pass judg
ment on them and use only the better one.
This explains the large sale on Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy. The people have
been using it for years and have found
that it can always be depended upon. They
may occasionally take up with some fash
ionable novelty put forth with exaggerated
claims, but are certain to return to the one
remedy that they know to be reliable, and
for coughs, colds and croup there is noth
ing equal to Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
