We see it stated that Governor
McSweeney will not reappoint Craw
ford on the constabulary force who
was recently acquitted of the charge
of murder by a Kershaw jury. We
are satisfied the jury did their duty
by acquitting the prisoner, because
under the evidence a different ver
dict would have been a clear viola
tion of the oaths taken. And now
that a jury has removed the stain of
murdei from Crawford he should
seek other employment than the con
stabulary, an employment less liable
to bring him into trouble. It is said
the Governor will not reappoint
Crawford because he does not intend
to increase the force; this may be
one of the reasons, but it is our
opinion that Governor McSweeney
knows the existence of ill-feeling
throughout the State against Craw
ford, and his re-appointment would
be very offensive to a large number
of citizens, some of whom are not op
posed to the dispensary law; for this
reason he would very properly de
cline to reinstate Crawford on the
Governor McSweeney has not as
yet given out a defined policy, but
those who bave watched his public
career, will agree with us when we
say that he is not a hurler of fire
brands, and that his efforts will be
directed towards executing the laws
of the State firmly and with kindness.
The dispensary law has given public
men a considerable amount of worry,
and about the time prejudice takes a
vacation, some thoughtless act will
call it back, and the enemies of the
law use it to fan the embers of preju
dice into flames of hate. When Con
stable Crawford fired the shot which
killed Mrs. Stuart, from one end of
the State to the other, did the ene
mies of the law seek to poison the
minds of the people against the law,
and we have no doubt had an elec
tion taken place then, the General
Assembly would be composed largely
of opponents of the dispensary law.
But like all questions, there are two
sides, and when Crawford's side was
heard by an unprejudiced jury he
was exonerated. But the question
now is, would it be wise for the Gov
ernor to reinstate on the force a man
who is the object of hate? Would the
appointment of such an one have a
tendency to bring respect to the law?
Or would the reappointment of Craw
ford be a source of irritation? If it
is, the Governor's purpose not to re
instate Crawford we think we see the
wisdom of such a course.
The Fitzsimmons-Jeffries fistic con
test last Friday night on Coney Is
land resulted in a great surprise for
some with sporting proclivities. Jef
fries knocked Fitzsimmons out in ele
ven rounds, and many a poor "chump"
is now making a battle with poverty
as the result of too much faith in
This prize fighting business gives the
moralist a theme to cover newspaper
space, and it also furnishes a subject
for many a preacher who had about
run out of material; it will be seen
therefore, the "manly art" haas some
uses. It makes the fool, and his
money soon part, it provides splendid
material for the uncorking of bottled
up eloquence, and it exposes much
hypocrisy. Keep an eye on some
men who are loud mouthed in their
professions of piety and see if you
cannot catch them encouraging the
''manly art" with their patronage.
Mr. W. B. Wilson, formerly of Clar
endon, but now a prominent busi
ness man of Charleston, has been se
lected as one of the committee to go
to Los Angeles to induce the Na
tional Educational Association to
hold their next convention in Char
leston. This is a great compliment
to M1r. Wilson and one which is ap
preciated by his friends. Willie Wil
son went to Charleston and became
secretary of the Carolina Grocery
Company; the responsibility of the
concern's management fell upon him,
and so well has he handled that im
mense business that the Merchants'
Exchange, in recognition of his bus
iness ability, made hima their presi
dent. He has taken a prominent
stnd in all coameial mattfme- and,
although a very young man, he is
regarded one of the best business
men in the city. It is with pride that
we notice the progress of one of our
boys. When "Billy" Wilson reaches
Los Angeles with Dr. Woodward of
the South Carolina College and Dr.
Montague of Furman University,
Charleston will have a warm advocate
of her interests.
The high muck-a-mucks of the
Democratic party are beating the
bushes for a battle-cry to be used in
the next national contest. The party
is seriously divided as to the advisabil
ity of continuing the fight with silver
as the paramount issue. There are a
great many silverites who think it
impolitic to keep the golb Demo
crats out of line, and there tl:e others
who believe if the silver issue is
dropped a good strong fight with an
almost solid Democracy can be made
against expansion and imperialism
However, notwithstanding the opin
ions to the contrary, of the great
leaders, we are still of the opinion
that the Democratic party cannot
win in the next national fight. We
have never read where the people
have refused to endorse an adminis
tration in power after a war, and on
the wr issue alone will the Republi
cans retain their grip upon the gov
ernment for another term. It is true
that the Republicans are not alone
entitled to all of the glory the success
A'.aerican arms have brought, but
they are in power, and to them will
the glory go, regardless of all other
issues or questions politicians may
invent. It is our opinion that the
most the Democrats can hope for, is
the keeping of the party in line and
the gain of seats in the lower House
Elsewhere in this issue will be read
a biographical sketch of the present
Governor of South Carolina. This
sketch is published in THE Tms for
a two-fold purpose. First, because
it based upon facts and second, it is
a hope held out to the young men of
the State. Every parent should re
quire their children to read the ca
reer of Miles B. McSweeney, and then
impress it upon them that what was
possible for a McSweeney is possi
ble for them, if they will employ
their time and talents properly. Mer
it, like truth, may be crushed to earth
for a time, but there is no earthly
power able to keep it crushed; it will
rise, and its beauty and brilliancy
will shine the greater, for having been
obstructed in its ascendant path.
There has been an idea in the
minds of many that a man had to
spring from a certain sect or class to
rise to influence in this State, but the
career of M. B. McSweeney proves
that this class obstacle cannot with
stand merit when backed up with
honesty, ability, pluck and energy. It
was these elements of character that
broke down the barriers before a Mc
Duflie, an O'Neal, a Geddings, a
Thornwell. These mentioned celeb
rities started life on the bottom
rounds of the ladder and without the
aid of family prestige and fortune,
they made proud history and fame
for their State. McSweeney has
within his make-up the characterist
ics of all of these great men. Left
an orphan at an early age his battle
of life began soon; how he succeeded
the biographer graphically tells us,
and the beauty of the story is, in its
Boys,zve invite your attention and
beg that you will study every line in
the sketch, and when you have done
that, make a resolution to emulate
the example set by Charleston's or
phan newsboy. What was accom
plished by Miles Benjamin McSwee
ney can be accomplished by every
one of you. Of course all cannot be
come Governors, but all of you can
strive and succeed in reaching a high
and honorable place in your chosen
callings, whether it be the farm, work
shop, store, the law or the ministry
or any other avocation in life; suc
cess must attend your efforts if those
efforts are built upon the foundation
stone of integrity, energy and ability.
Let these three virtues be the cardi
nal principles-the guiding star in
the lives of our young men.
There is more catarrh in this section of
the country than all other diseases put to
gether, and until the last few years was
supposed to be incurable. For a great
many years doctors pronounced it a local
disease, and prescribed local remedies, and
by constantly failing to cure with local
treatment, pronounced it incurable. Sci
ence has proven catarrh to be a constitu
tional disease, and therefore requires con
stitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure,
manufactured by F. J. Cheney & (so., Tol
edo, Ohio, is the only constitutional cure
on the market. It is taken internally in
doses from 10 drops to a teaspoonful. It
acts directly on the blood and mucous sur
faces ot the system. They offer one huD

Washington, June 9.-When the
influences which were brought to
bear in his favor were considered, the
ease with which Henderson, of Iowa,
knocked out all the other candidates
for Speaker and made his own elec
tion certain had nothing wonderful
about it. It was a simple case of
cause and effect. The principal fac
tor in his speedy success was the tip
given out by the administration in
his favor. That tip was a little bit
puzzling at first, because it had been
understood that the administration
was rather inclined to favor Sherman
when Reed's retirement first became
known. There were several reasons
for the transfer of the favor of the
administration from Sherman to Hen
derson. Mr. McKinley was jealous
of the influence that Tom Reed woul
have with Sherman, wished to jolly
the West by aiding it to capture the
Speakership, and was most anxious
of all to put a man in the Speaker's
chair who could not become a can
didate for President-Henderson's
birthplace was Scotland. The great
personal popularity of Henderson
made it easier tc engineer the stam
pede to him than it would have been
to any other man who was named as
a candidate. While no man in Con
gress is a stronger partisan than
"Dave" Henderson, no man in Con
gress has fewer personal enemies
than he. What his policy as Speaker
will be is yet to be ascertained. As
a member of Reed's Committee on
Rules be always helped to carry out
the Reed programme.
Themost interesting bit of political
gossip of the week is that in addition
to practicing law in New York, Mr.
Reed intends to retain his seat in the
House to take an important part in
all discussions that will give him a
chance to pay off an old score or to
push himself to the head of his party.
Although this is only a rumor, with
the probabilities strongly against it,
there is alarm in administration cir
cles on account of it. There is no
doubt that Mr. Reed could make a lot
of trouble for the administration
should he set up as a free lance on
the floor of the house, as he is known
to be opposed to the policy of the ad
ministration on a number of impor
tant questions. Mr. McKinley would
much sooner have Reed in the Speak
er's chair, where his party responsi
bility would act as a restraint, than
to have him on the floor armed with
a club and looking out for heads to
crack, with no responsibility to any
thing except his constituents. This
gossip is likely to continue unt.il Mr.
Reed resigns as a member of the
House, nobody seems to know when
he will do, if at all.
Boss Hanna is trying to enact the
role of the boy who has to be begged
to play. He says he doesn't wish to
remain at the head of the republican
National Committee, during next
year's campaign, because his health,
for which he has been ordered to
Europe, isn't what it was, and be
cause there is so much work attached
to the position that it allows him no
oportunity to indulge in recreation
and diversions. He gave the whole
snap away by adding the position
migh be forced upon him again, in
which case he would take it, but he
wanted it known that he would do so
against his wishes. Tommyrot every
word of it. Hanna would throw a
series of fits if be thought any other
man would be put at the head of the
republican committee. Owing to his
numerous trust connections, he is
making a grandstand play, intended
to convince jays that he doesn't wish
to manage the campaign.
Ex-Congressman Follet, of Ohio,
is sanguine that the democrats have
more than a fighting chance to carry
that State this year. He said: "The
democrats of Ohio have solid grounds
for believing that they can elect the
the Gov. this year. The revolt
among the republicans who dislike
Senator Hanna and his methods, and
who are dissatisfied with the nomina
tion of Judge Nash, will split the re
publican party asunder. In fact, the
breach between the factions is too
wide to be healed, and all talk of har
mony is for effect. The Ohio democ
racy is going into this campaign unit
e, confident and enthusiastic, while
the opposition, conscious of the divi
sion in its ranks, is timid and dubi
ous of the result."

Mr. Editor, we have the unenvia

of our young people and are not
ashamed to compare them with those
of any other section of the country.
We feel that it is due our teachers to
say that in all it takes to constitute
a thoroughly equipped and success
ful teacher ours are prepared, and
that community which secures either
of them for the next scholastic year
will indeed be fortunate.
Our graded school here at Pine
Grove is up-to-date in every respect.
Our teachers are qualified for their
work both mentally and morally.
One of them being a graduate of
Wofford College and the other a grad

are prepared to do first class aca
demic work. We can offer good
board at very reasonable rates and
therefore invite patronage from a
distance. One of our boys entered
the Sophomore class at Wofford last
year from this school. Our next ses
sion will open the first of October.
