The Insurgent forces near Manila
opened fhe upon the Americans last
saturday night and killed twenty of
our soldiers and wounded about one
hundred and twenty-five. It must
have been a very serious confliet, as
the,naval forces under Dewey were
brought in to aid the troops. The
firing began at night and was re
newed at dawn with favorable results
for the American arms. The Fili
pinos do not intend to permit the
United States to take ebarge of their
country without resistance, and while
it is believed that they will have to
submit eventually, we fear they will
be able to make the project cost us
much blood and treasure.
The Legislature has done the prop
er thing in repealing the Metropoli
tan police act. The law was enacted
for a political measure to aid in the
enforcement of the Dispensary law;
and in our judgment it failed in its
pirpose, and further, it drove from
support an element needed. When
the Metropolitan force was removed
the prejudice had become so deep
seated that it will take a considerable
amount of healing salve to heal the
wounds inflicted by the Metropolitan
police measure. Charleston for N ears,
has kept a wall of prejudice around
her and voluntary excluded herself
from the rest of the State; at last she
has seen the foolishmess of such con
duct and she proposes to again be
come a part of thc State, and when
it was proposed to take from the
Statute books a law that was abnox
ious to her there was only one dis
senting voice in the State Senate,
and the voices of men who had ad
vocated the placing of the law upon
Charleston were heard advocating
the wiping it off the Stature boioks.
It is gone now autl we hope there
will never be a necessity for such a
law to be place.l back.
Another week of legislation gone
without a single thing done which
affects the general good as far as I
can see, and although the general
assembly has had morning and night
sessions and a great mass of work
done it principally consisted of mat
ters of local import or benefiting rail
roads, or other corporations. The
legal fraternity did a great deal of
patching on the General Statutes.

A bill presented from the Darling
ton delegation fixing a schedule of
tobacco warehouse charges created
lively discussion, and it finally pass
ed the house with several counties
exempted from its operations, among
them was Clarendon, at the request
of Hon. H. B. Richardson, who
stated that he was not familiar with
the tobacco interests and was ignor
ant of the effect such a~ law would
have upon the tobacco interests of
tnis county, and as he had not been
advised by any o! his constituents or
approached on the matter, he would
err on the safe side and have
Clarendon exempted from the prov
isions of the act, unti! he could con
fer with those familiar with the sub
ject. Since then he has received ad
vices from some of those engaged in
the cultivation of the weed, and in
formed the Senator of his advices, so
when the bill comes up for consider
ation in the Senate, Clarendon will
have the exemption removed and
will be among the counties of Dar
lington and Florence where the law
applies. The act is as follows:
Section 1. That the charges and
expenses of handling and selling leaf
tobacco upon the floor of tobacco
warehouses in this State shall not
exceed the following schedule of
prices, to wit: For ~auctiou fees,
fifteen (15) cents on all piles of one
hundred pounds or less, and twenty
ive (2.5) cents on all piles of over one
hundred pounds and less than two
,ents per pile for piles or two hun
red and tifty pounds or over. For t
xeighing and handling, ten (10) cents t

ten (10) cents per hundred pounds: ,

amount charged for weighing and

the provisions of this act shall not ap

Clarendon's Senator voted to re
peal the Metropolitan police act for
the reason as lie stated upon the
floor, that the law was obnoxious to
the people of that city, and the ne

The bill to exempt factories from
taxation for a term of five years was
killrd in the Senate and Clarendon's
r,; resentative was among those who
.ilped to kill it. He did not believe
it was right to exempt a class of peo
ple from sharing the burdens of tax
ation when a still larger and poorer
class were forced to pay taxes. He
put himself in the position, if the bill
was going to pass to add an amend
ment to make the act apply also to
those engaging in the cultivation of
tobacco, but as the vote on the sec
ond reading showed clearly it would
be killed, the opportunity for his
amendment did not arise.
Governor Ellerbe has been extrem

when the end will come. All of the legis

It has often been said that the present
general assembly is the strongest body ot
men that has assembled in Columbia for
many years, but we cannot agree with
those making the assertion, because when
we look around us and see who are filling
the seats of men like Simonton. Simons,
Gary, Buchanan, Tindal, Rhame, Pope.
Jones, Finley, Wilson, McLaurin and
others we haveicome to the c.onclusion tiat
other assemblies have been composed of
stronger naterial. Trhere is one thing to
be said to the credit of the present body,
that is the total obliteration of factional
feeling;every man acts and thinks forhim
self, and all with a desire to work for
the best interests of the State.
Tiue great battles are yet to come; in the
house the privilege tax fight is over, and
it will come over into to the Senate for
final action. The opponents of Clemson
have made a desperate tight tu cripple the

do remains for the near future to decide.

Washington, Feb. 3.-'ien. Miles
has stirred up the administration
menagerie and frightened the war
investigating commission by again
charging that embalned beef was
issued to our soldiers. Secretary Al
ger would like to have Miles court
uartialed, but lie is afraid to do so,
even if Mr. McKinley would consent,
because he knows that would give
Miles an opportunity to prove his
charge, and that is just what Miles
wants. The positive assertion of
Miles that lhe has abundant proof
that the beef was embalmed has
greatly disturbed the war investiga
ting commission, which had about
completed its report declaring that
no embalmed beef was furnished the
army. it is now a little bit afraid to
make its report so strong in favor~ of
the beef contractors. This thing
isn't over by a jugfull.
it is now believed that a sufficient
number of Senators who were inclin
ed to vote against the treaty will con
tent themselves with the adoption of
the resolution declaring that the
treaty does not commit us to reten
tion of the Philippines to result in
the ratification of the treaty, Mon
Sobody had any cause to be sur
prised when the bill authorizing the
increase of the regular army to 100,
000 men was passed by the House by
a fote of 168 to 125. Four democrats
and one populist voted for the bill
and six republicans voted against it.
The hiumbuggery of the amendmient
giving the President authority, in
his discretion, to reduce the army to
50,000 men was fully exposed by the
democrats before the bill was jam
med through under orders from the
White House. it is Mr. McKinley
who is clamoring for a standing army
of 100,000; consequently nobody will
expect him to voluntarily make the
number smaller. Just before the
bill was passed a shrewd move was
made to add to its strength in the
Senate, by the adoption of an amend
ment for the abolishment of the army
"canteen." For several years the
temperance and reform organizations
of the country have been asking Con
gress to do away with the~eanteen,"
but their requests have been ignor
ed until now, when their influence is
needed to get the Senate to agree to
a standing army of 100,000 men. The
republican leaders are about as slick
as they make them, when it comes
to manipulating legislation.
The Hull bill for the perpetuation
of the gold standard, the retirement
of the greenbacks, and other pur
poses, has been favorably reported
to the House from the Coinage com
mittee, under pressure from the gold
standard men who have been de
manding financial legislation, but,
easy as it ought to .e for the repub
licans to put the bill through the
House, it is very doubtful whether
they do it.
Representative Handy, of Del., has
filed the minority committee report
against the Hanna-*Payne shiippiorg
bill, and it is a stinger. WVords are
not minced, but the bounties pro
vided for by the bill are named for
just what they are, personal grabs
into the people's money. Of the cost,
the report says: "By a careful and
conservative estimate we iind that
he gernnment will be lhigntad by
he contracts likely to be entered in
o during the first twelve months
inder this bill to pay bounties
Lmounted to more than $165,000,000.
ts concluding words are:" This bill

When the Ambassador of a foreign
.ountry allows himself to be inter
viewed for publication, it is generally
to help the government of the coun
try he represents to carry out some
pl'an. Consequently there is much
euriosity in Washington since the
(erman Ambassador declared in a
published interview that Germany
would not interfere with the plans of
the U. S. in the Philippines, because
the U. S. did not interfere with Ger
many's plans in China, as to what
Germany's game is. Soie think that
the interview was inanded to notify
us that American non-intervention
in German plans in China is the price
that must be paid for German non
intervention in American plans in
The Sampson clique are not as
chipper as they were. They realize
that their pull is getting weak in
spots. First, the Senate refused to
to act on Sampson's promotions un
til given official reasons therefor;
next Secretary Long declined to as
sume the responsibility of deciding
Sampson and the crew of the New
York to be entitied to prize money
for participation in the destruction
of Cervera's fleet, and ordered that
the claim be refered to the Court of
Claims. All of which is nuts for the
friends of Schley.
The House passed the River and
Harbor bill this week. It appopri
ates a little more than $30,000,000.
One of the first results of the pas
sage of the bill to provide for a stand
ing army 100,000 men is the announce
ment that the Military Appropria
tion bill, which will be reported to
the House next week,will carry $90,
000,000. Imperialism comes high.

Editor THE TIMEs:
There has been considerable sick
ness in the community, and the meas
les, fever and pneumonia are still
keeping the doctors busy. However,
we are glad to say the measles have
nearly run their course, and they
scared us more than they hurt us
anyway. Not so long ago one of the
neighbors was heard to say that
measles were not fit for a dog to have,
and I suppose any of us can testify
that we do not wish to be fit to have
them, but for some reason or other
they will fasten themselves to some
of us; I suppose that is what we get
by being so attractive, as the old lady
said, after the lightning had struck
her. Since the snow and sleet have
come and gone, it is hoped we can
shake off our diseases.
Wasbington's birthday will be
celebrated at Pine Grove School again
this year; this seems to be an estab
lished custom with the school and
the people always expect an entertain
ment on that day. The program in
dicates that the coming entertain
ment bids fair to be up to the aver
age, and will probably excel anything
of its kind that has ever been held at
Pine Grove. Siomethiing new will
be introduced this year, and that is a
debate by four of the young men up
on a query suitable to the day am]
occasion: "Resolved, that Americans
owe more to Washington than tc
any other man." We are expecting
ID. Jno. A. Rice, President of Colum
bia Female college, to be with us on
that day to give an address alone

vet certain that he will be there.

Preaching is still coinducte d in the

is not yet known when the dedicatory
service will be held, but we are ex
pecting a large congre;;ation at Pine
Grove on that day.
The parsonage, begun about a yeai
ago, is to be completed in the near
future, and will add much to our
comunity. But whether it is to bE
used as a parsonage right away o:

decided. We know the pastor hopes
for the former.

Being a teacher by profession,
our scribe wishes to address a few
ines to the teachers of Clarendon
County, hoping that he may be ben
efitted by some other teacher saying
a few words on the same subject,
which is one of the most essential
factors of senssful tehing. That
subject is: School Diseipline. What
a solemn, tender and arduous task is
imposed upon the teacher into whose
hands is coummitted the training of
the human character, and human
soul, which is more imperishable
than statuary marble, and no doubt I
other teachers will agree with me
that some of the best lessons we ever
learn, we learn from our failures and
mistakes, and that the error of the
past is the w sdom and success of the
future; so failures are necessary to
success and if rightly treated may
be transformed into positive benefit.
The governient of a school is similar
to that of a well regulated family
where everything is agreeable and
harnonious. Hence it is the power
that regulates the rights, duties and
privileges of students in their rela
tion to each other, and to the school
itself. Therefore, in order to succeed,
employ the best method of dsicipline.
No one teacher ~an lay down rules
which are applicable to all places,
cases and circumstances. Yet we can
exercise our judguent, form such
habits and taste in chilhood as to
make the best of citizens in af ter
life, what is the success which we
desire. Is it not to send forth chil
dren equipped mentally and morally
for the life struggle, the growing into
perfect harmony and adjustment
with the wise laws of our universe?
Impose no iron-clad methods, but be
positive, frank, and candid remem
bering that only a small percentage
of human characters are original,
but established by custom and fash
ion therefore, make no restraint only
by reason and benevolence which
w ill always appeal to even the rud
est, and be consistent with the high
er obligations of religion and virtue,
Obey the dictates and compunctions
of a Christian conscience, your can
dor will win confidence and success
will await you.

About Posting Lands.
At its recent session the General
Assembly made material changes in
the statutes relating to the posting of
lands. The - law as it now stands is
Section 176. Every entry upon the
the lands of another, after notice from
the owner or tenant prohibiting the
same, shall be a misdemeanor, and be
punished by a fine not to exceed one
hundred dollars, or imprisonment
with hard labor on the public works
of the county not exceeding thirty
days: Provided, That whenever any
