The Teacher's Association at a re

resolution, in substance, as follows:
It being the sentiment of the Ker

that the public funds have been wast
ed in the recent purchase, by school
trustees of this county, of charts to the
amount of over $2,000; be it resolved
that the county board of education
be asked to forbid, henceforth, the
purchase by trutees of maps, charts

school in this county, without the

testimony when he admitted having

of appointing a committee to inves

then rife, the writer was among the
advocates for an investigation, feeling
confident that an investigation could
only result in a thorough vindication
of Colonel Neals integrity, and the
showing would prove all that his
friends have claimed for him as a man
ager. There was opposition to the
appointment of this committee, but it
came from some who did not vote for
Neal's re-election. We are very sor

Washington, March 10.-The re
publican leaders leaders are laying
the wires for a financial fake that is
expected to tide the party over the
Presidential campaign. The caucus
committee of Representatives elected
to the next Congress, chosen to pre
pare a financial bill for the republi~
ans, met in Washington this week
and agreed to meet at Atlantic city
the 17th of next month. How this
thing strikes a veteran political ob
server may be judged by the follow
ing words of ex-Congressman Dolli
ver, of Mo., in relation thereto: "The
republican caucus committee is now
engaged in making a pretense of do
ios that which they hav~ no intention
of doing-the framing of a measure
for currency reform. They will do
their best, and I guess will succeed
in staving off any change in the finan
cial statutes until after McKinley has
been a candidate for another term.
Their heroic and vociferous asser
tion that they will do anything at all,
does not fool me." It is probable
that the committee will get up some
sort of a bill, but it will be purposely
made meaningless. Mr. McKinley
has no idea of allowing any real fi
nancial legislation before the Presi

energetic make-up of the Senator wil
understand how difficult it will be foi

The report that the Attorney Gen
eral of the United States was about
to begin proceedings against the
Standard Oil Company for violating
the anti-trust law was too good to be
true. There is no doubt that the
Standard Oil trust and a score of oth
ers are constantly violating the anti
trust law, but the obligations of the
present administration to trusts, as
well as the close business relations
existing between some of the men
wno now dominate the Republican
party with trusts, are such that noth
ing short of actual conviction of them
would convince anybody that any
serious prosecution of trusts will
tvke place under this administration.
When the Presidential campaign
opens there may be a bluff made to
wards prosecuting trusts for the ben
efit of the very gullible voters.

A Pretty Marriage.
Editor TEE TIMES:
A large crowd assembled at the
residence of Mr. J. A. Burgess on
Wednesday, March 8, to witness the
marriage of his daughter, Bessie, to
Mr. G. H. McClary of Georgetown.

in a lovely steel grey dress trimmed
with delicate blue satin and chiffon
and her attendant was dressed in
delicate pink trimmed with cream
silk and lace. Rev, Mr. Mills of For

be impressed with his earnestness.

News From Pine 61rove.
Editor Tni TIMEs:
We have certainly had plenty of
weather since my last writing, but
so far as I am able to discern, are
none the worse by it. But it is too
late to talk about cold weather now,
so I shall pass on to something else,
taking it for granted that the peo
ple throughout the county have had
enough of the above mentioned arti
cle-enough to talk about in the
years to come and make the small
boy prick up his ears by reason of his
astonishment and wonder how those
things could be.
Wednesday, the 22d, was a big day
for Pine Grove. The crowd began to
assemble about 9 o'clock and by half
past 10 the large church was filled to
overflowing. The program by the
school was well carried out and the
pupils received many words of praise;
this, of course, made their teachers
feel proud of them. The debate,
which has been mentioned before,
was well received by the people and
many favorable remarks made con
cerning the young debaters. Dr.
Rice, who was with us, said the de
bate was something remarkable and
was far beyond anything he expected
here at Pine Grove; but we can sur
prise people occasionally. Another
thing which took well with the peo
ple was a dialogue in which Uncle
Sam and two of his daughters took
part. Uncle Sam had on a new suit
of red, white and blue to attend the
birthday exercises of his favorite son,
and it seemed, from the peals of
laughter that greeted his appearance
that everybody was glad to see him.
There are others who deserve fa
vorable mention, but so many others
that I shall have to pass them by;
let it be sufficient to say that the ex
ercises were a complete success, af
fording fun for fun lovers, sense and
reason for sensible and reasonable
persons and excellent music for those
fond of music.
After the exercises by the school
were over we had a good dinner and
p'lenty of it served by the excellent
people of the community and neigh
boring comnnnities. We had about
two hours for eating, hand-shaking
and greeting of old friends. It might
be that many speeches which could
not bear recording were made during
those two hours, for here and there
could be noticed a couple with faces
suffused with a happiness beyond
that which the regular exercises of
the day would justify.
After dinner we had a lecture along
educational lines from Dr. Jno. A.
Rice of Columbia Female College. In
his lecture were. humor, pathos,
sound sense and good advice, well
mixed and flavored to suit the taste
of all his hearers. To say that we
were well pleased or highly pleased
with his lecture would be to express
our feelings too mildly; we were en
raptured, almost lifted from our seats
at times by his soul-stirring, life-up
Dr. Rice made many friends in the
Pine U ove commu-ity and we all
would be glad to welcome him back
into our midst at any time. We
trust that his visit and his lecture
will be instrumental in having some
of our young ladies attend the col
lege which he represents. His lec
ture was the last thing on the pro
gram, and so ended a very pleasant
and, we believe, a profitable day at
Pine Grove, and we all went home
with a deeper love for our country
and firmer resolves to make ourselves
useful in our country's welfare.

The Spanish Mauser rifle has a
longer range than the 43-calibre
Springfield, even when the latter
uses smokeless powder,and the Krag
Jorgensen has a longer range than
the Mauser; and yet the Ordnance
Department claims that our com*
manding officers in the Philippines
were given their choice of these small
arms and preferred the 45-calibre
Springfield to the Krag-Jorgensen.
This claim is reinforced by the fact
that there were 6,000 Krag-Jorgen
sens lying in Benicia arsenal, Cali
fornia, subject to the requisition of
Gen. Otis the whole time our troops
were using the 45-calibre Springfields
against the Spanish Mausers in the
Philippines. Only the volunteers
have these Springfields, however, for
all of the regular troops in the Phil.
ippines are armed with magazine ri
fes. But, in point of fact, the Mau
ser has but little longer effective
range than the 45-calibre Springfield
and is much less effective when it
hits, for the Mauser only wounds om
maims and the-Springfield kills out
right. And the Springfield has a
slight advantage over the Krag-Jor.
gensen in the hands of inexperienced
troops, and that is its simplicity and
toughness-it will stand any amount
of neglect and rough handling, while
the complex mechanism of the Krag
Jorgensen renders it difficult to han

troops which are being embarked
for Manilla now are armed with the
modern Krag-Jorgensen rifles and

The army reorganization law. re
cently enacted, makes a large in
crease in the niumber of army ap
poitments and the President has
been compelled to give nearly all of
his time since the adjournment of
Congress to receiving and hearing
the recomendations of Senators and
members in behalf of those whom
they wvant to have remembered
"when the President makes up his
jewels." The complete list of those
who were finally selected are just an
nounced. It is understood that Gen
eral JToe Wheeler will not remain in
the army, although lie would like to
do so (u.>~nle expressed it), if he could
be sent to the Philippines where
there is some fighting, but he does
not care to remain in the army if he
would be kept at home-that is, not
sent to the Philippines. The Presi
dent esteems General WVheeler most
highly as a soldier, but he has two
good ,.easns fr not wanting- to send
him the Philippines: one is that Gen
eral Wheeler is getting too old, and
the other is that he is too valuable
as a member of Congress to be wisely
withdrawn from that body.
The law of prizes provides that the
sum of $100 shall be allowed to the
victors for each person on the cap
tured or destroyed vessel or vessels
when the victors are the superior
force. That would give Admiral
Dewey's fleet about $200,000 for the
destruction of the Spanish armada at
Cavite, Manila Bay, May 1, 1898. But
the law provides just two times as
much head money for the captors
when the captives are the superior
force. It is, therefore, more than
probable that Dewey's men will be
allowed $200 for each person on the
captured and destroyed Spanish
fleet, for it is estimated that while
our fleet proper was stronger than its
Spanish enemy on water, the rein
forcement given to the Spanish fleet
by the shore batteries at Cavite ren
dered the opposing force the zreater.
Dewey's officers and men have made
such claims, and the question is now
under consideration by the Judge
Advocate General of the Navy.
The new personnel law of the navy
contains some novel features. For
instance, all of the line offleers who
are detailed to bureaus of the Navy
Department as bureau chiefs are
given the ranking grade of rear ad
mirals. Another provision is that at
least forty vacancies must be made
every year in the grade of captain
(the number of such vacancies from
deaths, retirements and resignations
heretofore has ranged from twelve to
thirty a year); and, in order that
such vacancies may be made, a "se
lecting-out" process has been pro
vided in order to force out enough to
make the required forty, but as a
measure of "balm to their injured
spirits," they get the retiring rank
of rear admirals.
