The Gonzales-Ellerbe fuss has
about died out, and judging from the
various comments in the newspapers
Editor Gonzales has come out of the
affair with the glory of a man who
has turned State's evidence. Even
the papers that condemn Ellerbe are
severe on Gonzales.
M1r. Featherstone has thrown away
his religious principles to make a
dicker with the liquor forces to defeat
the dispensary. When he runs for
governor again he should carry a
Sunday school tract in one hand and
a corkscrew in the other and prove to
the masses how easy it would be for
Prohibitionists and liquor dealers to
divy the political spoils; and when he
makes an appeal again to the women
and preachers he should not fail to
include the liquor men. Featherstone
in his ambition to be governor, has
simply stepped upon the Columbia
State's banana peel, and slipped up.
The Prohibitionists will have to look
elsewhere for a leader, for they can
not pose as being sincere in their
fight for a religious priiaciple, and at
the same time compromias with those
who want to sell liquor under license,
high or low. The two propositions
are diametrically opposed to each
The News and Cou rier's explana
tion, in issue of the 21st uit., "A
Procrustean bid for the Press," is
certainly a very learned effort and
makes its meaning as clear as very
thick,black mud. The bill sought. to
be struck by the News and Courier's
headline artist is to regulate the
charges for legal advertising. The
present law is unsatisfactory to the
newspapers and thbe party having the
charge to pay. Last year, thbis same
question came upl before the legisla
ture and the Senate without a hitch
passed the bill asked for, but when it
struck the house in the rush of the
last days it struck a sung and went
down. A member from Lexington who
did not understand the merits of the
bili offered some opposition on ac
count of it being a measure from the
State Press Association and he man
aged to get the bill killed and whzy,
he does not know.The bill is up again;
this time it comes from a lawyer
from Orangeburg who has an exten
sive practice and who knows by ex
perience that the law regulating le
gal advertising as it now exists is
not only an injustice to the printer,
but it fails to help officer, lawyer,
or client and is calculated to confuse,
and it also leaves room for advant
ages to be taken. Mr. Moss seeks to
remedy this condition by going back
to the printer's rule of measurement,
fixing a standard type and requiring
legal advertisements to be set solid;
under the Moss bill no advantage
can be taken and anybody can calcu
late t-he cost of an advertisement and
it is fair to all concerned.

Washington, Jan. 27, 1899.
A sensational speech against the
Hull bill for the increase of the reg
ular army, which will be voted upon
next. Tuesday,was made in the House
by Representative Johnson, of Ind.,
a repubican. He said of Mr. Mc
Kiniey: "It- William McKinley ever
changes his policy regarding the
Philippines he will bend to the
weight of popular opinion, to which
he bows, right or wrong." Indenti
ca s same sentiment, in slightly
different words, had been expressed
the day before by Jerry Simpson.
Being interrupted by applause from
the democratic side, Mr. Johnson
asked that it be not repeated until
he had finished, when Representative
Henderson of Iowva, sneeringly re
marked: "You ought to be able to
stand democratic applause." Quick
as a flash Mr. Johnson retorted: "I
am ready to stand the applause of
broadminded,honest men everywhere,
just as I am read)y to stand the crit
icismn of narrowminded republicans."
Speaking of the treaty of peace, Mr.
Johnson said: "If I were in the Sen
ate, I would rot in my seat before IJ
..-u.d cnent to that traty. "
The most carefully preprare
speeeb ainst t:e Hull bill was
made by liepresentativc Hay, of Va.,
the raLnking democratie member of
the Military Committee, who said
that the bill provided for too small
an army to carry out an imperial pol
icy aud too lage a one if we are not
to have an imperial policy.
The absurdity of the churge that
the anti-imperialists are holding up
the treaty of peac6 became fully ap
parent in the debate on the treaty,
this week. Senator Gorman told the
supporters of the treaty that its op
ponents were ready to join them in
disposnug of the treaty at any time,
and twitted them by doubting their
earnestncss about taking a vote o
the treaty. Senator Vest spoke even
plainer. lie said: "\Ve want it un
derstood distinctly that we are not
boldizng the treaty up at all. Name
the day. We will agree to any date
that will suit Nou. If you have the
votes you can ratify the treaty; if
not, it will be defeated; the question
will be disposed of, and the Senate
can proceed with other business."
Under these taunts Senator Davis
asked that the treaty be voted on
February 6, and it was agreed to.
Senator Clay, of Georgia., who fa
vors ratification of the treaty but op
poses expansion, did some common
sense talking this week, in the Sen
ate. For instance, he said of the
failure of the administration fo an
nounce a policy toward the Philip
pines: "If it be wise and statesman
like to outline our policy as to Cuba
before the adoption of the peace
treaty, what reason or logic can the
friends of expansion give for silence
as to the policy of our government
in dealing with our other territorial
aequisitions," and of retention of the
Philippines: "In my judgment, the
acquisition and retention of the Phil
ippines means an army of 150,000.
It means that the annual expenses of
the army will increase from $20,000,
00P to $200,000,000. And a large
standing army means that the pen
sion list will increase from $5,000,
000 to $10,000,000 ainnually."
That there is something rotten
about the War Department is every
day becoming more apparent, in spite
of the efforts made to keep down the
truth. The War Investigating Com
mission seems especially determined
to save the contractors who furnished
the bad beef, both refrigerated and
canned, to our soldiers, insisting that
the beef was good, in the face of
positve evidence to the contrary.
Another proof of the rottenness of
the War Department methods is fur
nished by the assertions made by
Gen. Eagan's friends, that he is will
ing to accept a nominal punishment
as a result of his court-martail for
blackguarding Gen. Miles, and .keep
his mouth shut, but that if Mr. Mc
Einlev fails to set aside enough of
te finding f the court-martial to
make his punishment nominal, he
will raise such a scandal as Washing
ton has not had for many years. by
telling everything he knows about
war contracts and thes~e wbo profited
thereby. Eagan's plea before the
court-martial, of not guilty, although
acknowledging the use of the dirty
and disgusting languag~e towards
FGen. Miles, and bis claim for pro
tection under Mr. McKinley's prom
ise, is believed to be the r esult of an
understanding, and the belief is
strenghened by his confident and
nonhalent bearing digring the trial.
A sportingl~y inclined army offcer
offered to bet ten to one that a ver
dict of guilty would not result in
E g.n's dismissal from the army.
Senator Lodge, in a speech in fa
vor of the ratification of the treaty,
did not go quite as far as Tim Camp
bell, who is said to have once re
marked to Mr. Cleveland, "What's
the Constitution between friends,"
but he must have felt abiut the same
as Tim did when the Constitution
tood in his way, when he said; "Con
stutions do not make a people; peo
ple make constitutions." Like many
other epigrams, that of Mr. Lodge is
not strictly true. He does not read
history aright who does not recognize
the powerful party played by the
Constitution in making the people of
the United States what they are to

A bill introduced by Doctor Woods
to exempt certain portions of the
county from the operations of the
stock law passed the House and is
now in the Senate.
Mr. Wood's bill relative to the
stock law in Clarendon County was
called up by Mr. Richardson and or
dered to its third reading.
The bill had gone through when
members thought it best to hear
from Mr. Woods, who is sick. Objec
tion was then again withdrawn and
the bill ordered-to its third reading.
The bill with so many ups and downs
"Section 1. That on and after the
approval of this Act there shall be ex
empted from the operation of Chap
ter 27, Title X, Part 1, of the General
Statutes, known as the general stock
law and fencing stock, all that cer
tain territory in Clarendon County
known as North Black River, being
Black River and Black River Swamp,
extending from the line of Sumter
County to the line of Williamsburg
County: Provided, the said exempt
ed territory be completely surround
ed by a lawful fence, with gates and
cattle guards, as hereinafter pro
Section 2. That all of the territory
in Clarendon County covered by the
Townships of Plowden's Mill, Har
mony, Midway. New Zion, Douglass
and Sandy Grove shall,from the 15th
day of November to the 1st day of
the following March,be annually ex
empted from the operation of the
general stock law, as cited in the 1st
section of this act.
The other sections are relative to
the enforcement of the Act."
An amendment to the Hawkers
and Peddlers law, requiring horse
drovers to pay a county license, pass
ed the Senate and is now over in
Hon. H. B. Richardson has beea
kept busy with committee work and
is regarded one of the working mem
bers of the House.
At a delegation meeting it was de
cided to be for the best interests of
the County to raise the county levy
three-fourths of a waill; this will
bring a sufficient sum to pay off all
debts against the county and the
running expenses for this year. The
Supervisor has borrowed from the
Sinking Fund Commission $3,500, at
5 per cent. interest, and if he will
use that money with good business
judgment he will save to the county
not less than 35 per cent. In the
preperation of the supply bill, it was
carefully worded and it stipulates
how the borrowed money shall be
expended. It is only to be used for
roads and bridges, for dieting pris
oners and paupers, and for paying
jurors, witnesses and bailiffs. All
other demands upon the county will
have to wait until the taxes are col
lected. Now if the Supervisor has
a bridge to rebuild, the party doing
the work will be paid the cash as
soon as he complies with his contract
and therefore can afford to do the
work cheaper;there need be no shay
ing of bridge claims this year. The
food supplies to be purchased for
the poor house and chaingang will
be bought for cash and there is no
good reason why a considerable save
cannot be had from this source.
With the cutting off of the extra
week of court in the fall our court
expenses will be less this year than
heretofore,and the county is mna fair
prospect to shake off her debt and
et where she ougbt to be.

mission was sent to him last Satur

The County Court bill passed the
Senate and although its author
laimed it would save the tax payers
more money, Clarendon's Senator
could not see it in that light, as the
bill required a salary of one thous
ands dollars for a county judge, thre~e
hundred dollars for a county solici
tor and three hundred mo e for a~n
official stenograper; the jurisdictin
of the court does not extend to the
trial of causes where the title of land
was involved, so when the bill was
about to pass Clarendon's Senator
had this county exempted upon the
ground that we did not care at this
time to indulge in such a luxury, and
we were not disposed to pension
some lawyer who wanted a judge
There is a bill now before the
Senate to encourage the erection of
factories in this State, and to do so
the factories are to be exempted from
taxation for a period of five years.
Clarendon's Senator will oppose the
measure upon the ground, that it
will fail of its purpose, besides it is
unjust to other taxpayers, and if the
bill goes to a second reading he will
amend the title of the act and bill,
by an encouragement to tobacco
planters, that they be also exempt.
Our tobacco culture is still in its ex
perimental stage, and we need some
thing in this country to take the
place of cotton; if the friends of the
big syndicates can ask for tax ex
emptions we will not be too modest
to ask for exemptions for the encour
agement of those who are nearer to
us than the factory people are.
The redistricting bill is now in the
Senate, but we believe we will be
able to prevent its passage. It is a
useless measure and in our judgment
it was conceived to help an aspirant
get to Congress where he could
make $5000 a year. There is no de
mand on the part of the people for
such a measure, certain it is that the
people of this county do not want it;
we are satistied to remain where we
are and where we have been for lo
these many years and ir a man can
not get to Congress as the districts
are now arranged let h~m stay at
