In the last issue of this paper we
stated our inability to find in the
Acts sent out by the Secretary of
State, a law regulating the salaries of
county auditors throughout the Stata.
This has brought Secretary of State
Cooper out in an interview express
ing surprise at our not knowing that
the bill referred to, failed to receive a
second reading in the House. Our
memory may be at fault: of course
we do not claim to have a memory
without fault, nor do we wish to re
flect upon Coditier Breazele or State
Printer Bryan, but our impression
was, the bill passed both houses
and was approved by the Governor.
We also think that among the "Acts"
published in the newspapers under
the heading of "New Laws," this
same Act appeared.
We are sure that Senator Graydon
of Abbeville introduced a bill entitled
"A bill to fim the salaries of the couu
ty auditors )f this State," which was
reported favorable with amendments,
and was fintIly passed and sent over
to the House; it was our impression
that the bill also passed the House.
It is possible that we have gotten the
bills fixing sa'aries for county super
visors and county superintendants of
education and other countyv officials
confused with Senator Graydon's bill
to fix the salaries of county auditors;
if so, then our n' m:ory is at fault;
there was no intention to nmislead the
pdblic nor to do injustice to the State
printer or coditier. However, we are
not the only one liable to have de
fective memories and make mistakes.
We would like to know, as a matter
of information, if amended Act No.
1.06, page 175, entitled "An Act to
provide for the payment of witnesses
in Charleston countv"~ is the same as
passed the General Asseribly; we re
fer to the proviso in section 1. If
our memory serves us right there was
a general Act passed providing
against the payment of witness fees
to State, county and municipal ofi
cials which was entirely separate and
distinct from "An Act to provide for
the payment of witnesses in Charles-'
ton countv." We are not sure of
this, but since we have started to
looking over the work of the General
Assembly we would also like to have
this matter looked into.
But to return to Secretary of State
Cooper's surprise at our not knowing
'"so far from this measure passing, it
did not even receive a second read
ing in the House," whieh was cleai'ly
shown by the Joui'nal of the House
upon the day of adjournmwent, where
it appears as a second reading bill, a
copy of which wvas placed on the desk
of Senator A ppelt," etc.
Senator Appelt basedl his editorial
on what he regarded a mo.ral certain
ty but of course, will not undertake
to place his memory ag'iinst the re
cord. If he is mistakeni be is glad to
stand corrected as he only had his
memory to guide him in the matter.
We are under the impression that it
is customary for members of the gen
eral Assembly to receive bound vol
umes of the "journal," and relying
upcn such a supposition we did not
keep all the loose copies placed upon
our desk; had we a copy of the "jour
nal" to which custom has made us
entitled, the error of not remember
ing that a very important bill which
provided for the salaries of certain
officers had not received a second
reading in the House, would not have
occured1, and our worthy Secretary of
State would not have had occasion for
FINISH T[HE JOB.
What are we going to do about it?
T1he American soldiers are in the
Philipines being killed by Mauser
bullets and dying from a malarial at
mnospher'e, with no perceptible prog
ress towards ending the war. Should
the United States stop at this stage
of the game, or go on and fight the
war to a successful end? A great
many people, perhaps a majority,
think the administration made a
gr'ave mistake in landing troops in
the Philippines. We are among
those whuo think so, but we are there,
and our forces, if the dispatches are
to be relied upon, arc inadequate to
has discovered our weakness and is
pushing the fighting with such ag
gressiveness that our arms are still
around Manila, just about the posi
tion where Dewey placed them over
a year ago. For over a hundred
years these Filipinos have been fight
in- the Spanish government and
therefore the islands are inhabited
with a population that has been fight
ing all their lives; they and their an
cestors have spent their lives dodging
and hiding in the swamps, fastnesses
and morasses; every place of conceal
ment is knowii to them, and they can
keep up a guerrilla warfare forever
unless our government sends a force
sufficient to subdue them. To ac
complish this it will take over one
hundred thousand men, and they will
have to do their work before the wet
We do not believe the game worth
the candle, but this country has un
dertaken to conquer, and conquer
they must. This is our country
"right oi wrong, our country," and if
it is the fixed policy of the nation to
take the Phillipines and conquer the
Filipinos, then let it be done as
quickly as possible. The govern
ment should call for volunteers at
once, giving preference to "our com
rades in black," and if enough of
them can be procured let them have
the profit and glory of shooting the
Filipinos with civilizing bullets. and
when they have accomplished the de
sired result the government, in ap
preciation of Ihe valorous blacks,
should erect a monument in the har
bor of Manila bearing a statue of a
negro holding a blazing torch in one
hand, a rifle in the other, and a
crocus sack on his back. This will
represent the black soldier's work of
bearing the torch of civilization, the
engine of death to force civilization,
and the receptacle that held his civil
izing lootings; of course, it would not
be necessary for chicken heads to be
sticking out of the sack.
We have no doubt that the negro
soldiers would do good service in
the Philippines, and the administra
tion, if it intends to conquer the Fil
ipinos, should send as rapidly as pos
sible at least one hundred thousand
negroes and to get them, recruiting
stations should be established in
every small town in the South, where
there are as many loafing negroes as
there are flies. We want, now that
our country is in it. to see the fight
ing forced to a victorious finish and
not stop until the stars and stripes
wave over the entire cluster of islands
and every Filipino is either civilized
NO PROMISTOU1S REWARD)S.
We are glad to note that Governor
MSweeney has turned his business
e' e towards his contingent fund, be
cause from the way that fund has
been called upon for rewards it be
gan to look as if the people through
out the State would soon lose their
interest in the enforcement of law,
unless the~re wvas some pay attached
to it. The request for rewards have
actually become a menace to law and
order. If a crime is committed in a
cormunity the officers and citizens
wil! not move until they can get the
Governor to offer a reward and there
by permit the criminal to put dis
tance betwveen himself and the scene
of his crime. Governor MIcSweeney,
however, has given it out that before
oflring a reward the matter will be
referred to the representatives of the
counties asking for it, in ordIer that
te saume may' be looked into by those
on the ground. This is entirely cor
rect and a 'display of business judg
ment. We have heard of criminals
knocking about the country with imn
punity, all because there wva/ no re
ward; escaped convicts have lurked
ab)out in communities atnd allowed to
do more devilment, with the officers
~f the law not taking any action, be
cause, as they said, no wvarrants had
been placed in their hiands. the (of
leer claiming that without a wvarrant
it is no more his business to appre
end an escaped conviet than any
ther citizen. If this be correct, then
legislation is sadly needed in that di
rection, for it has always been our
impression that any citizen has the
right to arrest an escaped convict,
but it is the special duty of ofticers
::aged with the execution of law,
whether rewards are f1ered or not.
f such is not the law it should be,
as the people ought nut be taxed to
mintain ornamental positions.
D)RY BONES TO RATTLE.
The leaders of the prohibition ele
ment met in Columbia recently, but
if any thing was done it did not leak
>ut, except that some of them are de
termined to renew their fight for
State offices. Mr. Featherstone was
n hand, of course, and no doubt he
xpects to make the race as the
mouthpiece of the Prohibitionists,
but if we mistake not, Mr. Feather
stone slipped his trolley after his de
feat, and will not be accepted as a
leader next year. He has (opened
his flanks too wide to the opposition,
and our friends the "Prohibs" know
it, and will therefore seek a new lead
The Prohibition faction of this
State can not hope to miake the r-un
next year that they didl last, because
the present chief executive will not
have as many enemies seeking his
scalp. Featherstone made a close
run, under peculiar conditions, such
ministration recognized, and took
advantage of, giving the Prohibition
leader the advantage, and we do not!
believe that any of the "Prohibs"
think the race between Ellerbe and
Featherstone was a test of the senti
ment of the people of this State on
the liquor question. If Governor
McSweeney is fortunate enough to
keep clear of the snares of wiiy poli
ticians, as we have faith he will, and
as the beginning of his administra
tion promises, then the Prohibition
ists can have no reasonable excuse to
put candidates, as such, in the field,
unless they first confess that it is inot
principle, but office they want.
The dispensary law, if honestly en
forced, is about as near the prohi
bition mark as can be reached, and
if Governor MeSweeney makes an
earnest effort to euforce the law, it is
all the people will require. The peo
ple are growing more reasonable
every (lay, and do not expect impos
sibilities, they know the Governor
cannot make convictions for the vio
lations of law, that part of the work
lies with the people-the witness
stand and the jury box, and at the
ballot box in the selection of their
local officers. It was only a few days
I ago the Governor reduced the con
stabulary force and gave evidence of
his confidence in the local authorities
to enforce the dispensary law as other
laws are enforced, and if the people
find their local officers not respect
ing the Governor's confidence, they
should place in pouition others who
will. If this plan is adopted prohi
bition will come nearer reaching its
object than the constant dragging of
the question in politics.

We have on our desk a copy of
The Satuidav Evening Post, publish
ed in the city of Philadelphia, and
was founded by Benjamin Franklin
1728. It has a fine list of contribu
tors and its first page contains an
interesting article from the pen of
ex-Senator John J. Ingalls, on the
famous feuds of Senators Conkling,
Blaine and Lamar.
fhe readers of the News and Cou
rier's police court reports find much
amusing reading, and a great many
people not living in Charleston look
for these reports with a great deal of
interest. Johnny Burke, the reporter,
is a prince of good fellows, and by
his pencil lbe is getting to be as much
of a terror to the "vile" in Charleston
as Parkhurst is to New York. Burke's
special beat of late has been on the
"Rialto," and he has almost convierted
it into a missionary chapel.
The headline writer of the News
and Courier slaps himself on the
thigh and gleefully exclaims, "Our
'Dear Appelt' caught napping," as
though this artist never made a mnis
take in his life. If he but knew, it is
a very rare occasion that he fails to
put his foot in it, whenever he opens
his mouth. The difference between
him and us is that, if we make a mis
take and are showvn our error, we do
the thing which will take down the
arched brow caused by the "sur
prise" of so good and great a man
as our own dlistinguishedl Secretary
of State, but our headline friend
sticks to the horse being ei.:hteen
Senator T1ilhnan dlelivers th'e an
nual address to the citadel cadets at
Orangeburg next Friday. Time
brings about many changes; wvho
would have thought nine years ago,
that Benjiin it Tilhuan would ever
be selected as the orator at a citad'el
commencement? The "Dude facto
r" and our senior Senator have met,
and formed a mutual aihuiration so
ciety, and wye are glad of it, the cita
del is a fine institution of learning
antd, the action of its authorities last
year, in ob~serving dsii,ud
for it a host of new friends through
out the State. While that affair was
a most deplorable one, yet we believe
it was for thme best, and resulted in
a permanent lease of life, of what we
believe was a tottering institution.

(From or~r R-gnlar Correspoudent
Washington, June 23.-"1Too good
to he true," is the general comment
upon the rumor that preceded Secre
tary Alger's return to Washington,
saying that having made a deal with
Pingree to support him for the Sen
atorship Alger would soon resign in
order to devote his whole tivne to
trying to get to the Senate. There
are two many pickings in sight for
Aler to voluntarily resign before he
gets his share of them. Those Porto
tico concessions are yet to be given
out, and the scheme of enlisting vol
unteers for the Philippines without a
regular call for quotas from the
States, which was devised so as to
leave the appointment of the officers
in the Lands of the War Departient
instead of the g-vernors of the States
where it would have to go if the us
ual course was followed, is an addi
tional reason why Alger isn't likel
to resign in the near future.
It is denie1 at the War Depart
nent that Gen. Miles is to be sent to
the Philippines so as to have him out
of reach when Congress meets, as was
rumored several days ago.
The Agricultural Department made
public a report that it has just re
ceived from Lieut. A. P. Hayne, Cali
fornia, heavy artiliery, on agriculture
in the Philippines, which shows those
islands to be anything but desirable
possessions, although the country is
now adding more than a million dol
lars a day to the original big price
paid for them. The report quotes Sen
or Manuel del Busto, formerly chief of
the agricultural experiment station at
Manila to show the social stagnation
-the increase in population from
1842 to 18s8 was less than 4 per cent;
also their characteristics-"the rid
dle and lower classes are almost of
the worst possible type, irresponsible
and degenerate, morally and physic
ally, insensible of any contracts or
obligations, written or oral, ready to
cheat and expecting to be cheated,
and amenable to no sort of persua
sion except brute force, from which
they are always ready to escape by
moving their habitat." After recit
ing the difficulties connected with
learing ground and getting a crop
" r' r) n
planted, the report says: "When this
is accomplished and a luxuriant crop
is raised, it is at tie merey of the
first typhoon, which in the northern
part of the archipelago, is severe.
These vind1 and rain storms level
crops, uproot trees, demolish houses
and flood with water everything that
has been left by the wino, turining
plantations into lakes and swamps
and renderimg the primitive roads
impassable for long periods." Here
is another extract: "Diseases, so far
hardy known to Europeain doctors,
result from the turning up of this vir
gin soil. Accor'iing to competent
medical authority, many of these
strange disorders cause death in a
few hours, while by others, even if
the patient recovers, he is condemned
to a wretched and lingering existence.
One of the commonest of these dis
eases is temporary or permanent par
alysis, with almost endless complica
Mr. William Ryan of New York
ity, now visiting Washington, said
in reply to questions: "The factional
strife that is going on in New York
ity isn't of much consequence to the
Democratic party at large, for no
principle is involved in it, and the
whole struggle is for personal ag
grandizement. The taint of commner
ialismn, in fact, is over everything in
New York and dominates its polities
absolutely. The mass of Democratic
voters in New York are for W. J.
Bryan for President and for a re
adoption of thbe Chicago platform. If
Mr. Bryan is chosen next year he will
2arry New York State."
It is regarded as significant that
the administration should have con
sidered it necessary for the Post
master General t'o make public an
ofiial denial of the charge that let
ters of the volunters in the Philip
pines were being censored.
