FINISH THE STATE HOUSE-WHEN !
It has been suggested recently by
some of the newspapers, that the
next session of the General Assembly
take steps towards completing the
work on the State house. There is
certainly a need for this work to be
finished and give the State Capitol a
more imposing appearance, but how
can this be done without increasing
the State levy? The people who
have to bear the tas burden are al
ready complaining about high taxes,
and nowo if it is increased their coin
plaints will grow louder. If our
lawmakers can devise a way to finish
the Capitol building without increas
ing the tax levy then by all means let
the good work begin. There has
been thousands of dollars thrown
away on that building, but that was
when the government was in other
hands, nevertheless we are not now
in a condition to add to our expendi
tures, and will not be until we can get
more for the products of the soil, and
our other expenses reduced.
We are perfectly willing that the
city of Columbia have a modernly
finished public building as one of the
attractions to aid her in the pro
gressive move she is making, but ve
do not see the crying necessity in
calling on the people throughout
the State to help beautify that
city at present. Some one has
said that one-sixteenth of a mill will
raise enough money to do the work.
If that calculation be correct, suppose
the cdilciais throughout the State
dre.wing salaries, have those salaries
reduced sufficiently to finish the
State house, then the work can be
done without adding any additional
taxes on the people. It is all nice
enough to icok upon magnificent
structures, but it is another story to
pay for them. Our State house an
swers the purpose for which it is used,
and the officials occupying it are con
tent to remain therein as long as the
good people of the State are willing;
we do not believe one of them will
resign on account of the building not
being finished, nor do we think the
present condition of the building will
dampen the ardor of those patriots
who aspire to State house honors.
Let the State Capitol building be fin
ished in the very best style without
increasing the tax, and not otherwise.
Those who have the power to vote
away the people's money must have
a greater regard for the condition of
the iai~ys.than they have for the
appearance of a puit>aluilding.
President McKinley has about de
cided to call for volunteers to go to the
Philippines, and already his desk is
full of applications for shoulder
straps, but we do not see where there
is much of a rish for the position of
private. At the recruiting stations
business is exceedingly dull and the
probability is that Uncle Sam will
have to issue an order to the exam
ining officers to be less rigid so that
:nen can be pr-ocured for the service.
The city of Charleston is now un
dering a political heat, politicians are
fixing up the mayoralty slate and urg
ing their respective favorite to sacri
fice himself upon the altar of city
politics. A very strong petition ask
ing Mayor Smyth to stand for re
election has been published, which
is indeed, a nice compliment paid to
that gentleman, because the petition
was signed by a large portion of the
business interests of the city. This
element represent property and the
material interests of the city general
ly. Another element not being satis
fied to keep waiting and to be class
ed with the "outs" are urging Mr.
James Seignious to reach out to grasp
the Mayorality plum. Unlike the
friends of Smyth, the friends of
Seignious are not publishing peti
tions, but are doing their persuading
by delegations. Seignious says he
does not believe in the petition prac
tice, and Smyth does not want the
to keep the position unless his con
stituency give expression of a desire
that they wish him to remain.
'Well, it is safer to predict the re
election of Smyth than it is to bet
on the "Shamrock" taking the cup

Editor THE 'r-.Es:
I guess as I heard nothing to the
contrary you have published my two
former letters, so presuming upon
that, I shall venture you another
short one. I shall probably be home
by the time you publish this, for there
is so much malaria floating around
down here in South Georgia that a
man from our delightfully healthy
town would scarely be expected to
stay here any more than lie was
Georgia has been all stirred up
with crimes during the past few
weeks. Almost every paper you pick
up is full of double-head-lined arti
cles about some outrage or murder
or shooting scrape. I doubt if there
is a State in the South that can equal
this State for crime. But there are
well-known reasons for this. Geor
gia is the largest State, it is claimed,
east of the Mississippi river, and cou
tains about 140 counties. The pro
portion of negro population to the
white population is fully as great, if
not greater than in our State, and
many of the negroes down here are
the scum of the two Carolinas. Lum
ber and turpentine, of course, are
great interests, and negro labor is
used mostly to work them. Every
winter about January turpentine and
lumber men go from here into the
two Carolinas hunting labor, and the
class they get is usually that class
wh'j are trifling and will not work at
home. They come out here and get
pretty good wages at a mill or on a
turpentine farm, and when they get a
little money, say fifteen to forty dol
lars ahead, they go crazy and usually
wind up in a shooting scrape if they
escape being swung to a limb for a
more horrible crime. The world will
never know the heinous details of the
crime committed by Sam Hose, who
was burned to a pine tree, or the
people of that section would not be
so severely condemned. The details
of his crime were too horrible to be
even intimated, much less told. I be
lieve Sam Hose was a Georgia negro,
and that old preacher Strickland, it
is claimed, was in with him and it is
said had a bet -with Hose that he
could not accomplish what he did.
Sam Perry, who is wanted and will
be lynched when caught for foully
murdering one white man and se
verely wounding another in a cow
munity about fifty miles west of Sa
vannah, is an emigrant from Darling
ton county, South Carolinq.
It is also terribly demoralizing to
negroes to come down here from Car
olina and work a year and then go
back home. A good per cent of the
assault and battery cases in our
courts are negroes returned from
Georgia. You take the average negro
from our State or North Carolina and
let him come down here and make a
little money and be gets too big to
contain himself. Let him go back
home with fifteen or twenty dollars
after his year's experience in Geor
gin, cariying a deck of cards and a
pistol, his hair shaved all around his
ears and a long patch on top in the
middle, two leather bands around his
wrists and a ring in one ear, and then
he is just as good for the penitentiary
or the chaingang as ten cents is for a
drink of whiskey or a glass of beer in
a Charleston restaurant under the
present city government.
I have been down here on this trip
two months, but doubt if I have been
over more than one-third of the State.
During that time I have seen a good
many kinds of people and stopped at
a good mnany kinds of hotels. Of
course a man never gets any more
than what he pays for, but if he could
always get all that he paid for,
he would fare first rate. A trav
elling man seems never to be entitled
to any courtesies or favors. Every
ody expects him to have plenty of
money and its pay for everything you
get, even to the smallest favor. This
I guess is the case almost every where.
In travelling around, a man some
times strikes some awful "joints" cal
ling themselves hotels. I1 heard a
drummer say a few days ago that he
stopped at a place where the bill of
fare was "pluck, liver and light" you
had to have pluck to eat the liver, or
light out of the hotel. I have heard
of beef being so tough that you
could'nt cut the gravy. One might
put up with that, but there are some
things which are worse. I struck a
place myself a few days ago and had
to pay for lodging that made an im
pression upon mind and body. Oh
my! W~hat vivid recollections I have
of that night, trying to combat with
sleep the attacking myriads, to all
appearances organized and officered
by battallions and regiments. How
vividly I could describe that memor
able night, but I refrain.
Watermelons are plentiful down
here and have been for two or three
weeks. They are being shipped by
the car load, but by the time the cit
ron fleshed Kolb jems reach the north
ern markets after two or three days
on the road, I do not imagine they
are particularly delightful.
I have told you that Georgia was a
great State, and so it is, but after all
there are no people in this country
like our South Carolina people The
genial warmth that pervades South
Carolinians is refreshing after one has
been thrown for sometime among
folks who are cold blooded and put
all devotion in the almighty dollar.
The folks down here are good folks,

There is more catarrh in this section of
the country than all other dise.ases pnt to.
gether, and until the last tnw years w.is
snpposed 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. Ihall's Catarrh Cure,
manufactured by F. J. Cheney & . o , Tt'l
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 oneous sur
faces of the system. They offer one hun
dred dollars for any case it fails to cure.

Washington, June 30.-One of the
first acts of Mr. McKinley after his
return to Washington was to order
the persecution of Admiral cliley by
the Sampson clique in the navy de
partment stopped. He did nut d1o so
because of any love he had for Schley,
but because of statements publicly
made by Maryland Republicans that
they intended to hold the adminis
tration responsible for the navy de
partment's treatment of Schley. That
frightened Mr. McKinley, who is by
no meaos as confident of his re-elec
tion as some other Republicans pro
fess to be. And, in addition to or
dering a let up on Schley, Mr. Mc
Kinley sent for ex-Postmaster Gen
eral Gary and asked him to hell) keep
Maryland in line. Uul:ss 31aryland
ets who ought to know are off in
their judgment, nothing will prevent
Maryland returning to its old place
in the Democratic column.
In his anxiety to remain in the
cabinet, notwithstanding his deal
with Governor Pingree, who every
body knows is not an admirer either
of Mr. McKinley or of his adminis
tration, Secretary Alger is getting
foxey. In order to jolly Mr. McKin
ley, he publicly said that his deal
with Pingree was solely for the pur
pose of obtaining the senatorship and
was not binding on either for any
other purpose; that he was a McKin
ley man from start to finish and was
prepared to prove it at any time that
it might i ecome necessary, by break
ing with Piugree, if lie should show
any disposition to antagonize Mr.
McKinley in Michigan. How much
of this Mr. McKinlev swallows no
body knows, but it is certrin that Al
ger has undertaken a difficult role.
It is known that Senators MeMillan
and Burrows are hard fighters and
that they will demand that Alger be
put out the cabinet, and their demand
will be backed by many Republicans
whom Mr. McKinley will not care to
oflend. Besides, it is believed that
Pingree is only using Alger to try to
get even with Senator McMillan, and
considered by no means certain that
he would allow Alger to go to the
Senate even if he succeeded in con
trolling the Michigan Legislature.
Nothing could more surely prove
the deception practiced by the ad
ministration concerning the situation
in the Philippines than the orders is
sued this week to all the regular re
cruiting officers to enlist as many vol
unteers as may present themselves
for service in the Philippines, and
the official announcement that Gen
eral Otis is to have an army of 40,000
men by the end of the rainy season.
In order to keep the appointment of
all the officers in the handis of the ad
ministration, no organizations are to
be enlisted. The men are to enlist
as individuals and the regiments to
be formed will be United States Vol
unteers. Although the announce
ment was made at the same time that
all the officers for these regiments
would be chosen from the volunteers
who have seen service in the Philip
pines, it is a safe bet that they will
not be. Ex-Congressmnan Campbell
of Illinois, who is now in Washing
ton, tells his friends that he has been
promised the colonelcy of one regi
ment, and he hasn't seen any service
in the Philippines; and tbere will be
"Making a virtue of necessity," said
a senator, "is what I call the an -
nouncement of Thurston of Nebraska
that he would retire from the Senate
at the end of his term. Knowing
that neither he nor any other Repub
lican has any show to be elected to
the Senate by the Nebraska Legis
lature, Thuiston concluded to save
some of the big wad of corporation
money he has by not entering the
field as a candidate. His talk about
being tired of holding office was
merely a little grand stand play."
The adage, "Make hay while the
sun shines," appears to have been
changed by the inventors of the
country into "Make money wvhile the
mercury rist.s." The weekly receipts
of the patent office are now averaging
$5,000 more than they did in the
summer of last year, and this week's
issue of patents, tr-ade-marks and la
bels was the greatest since April,
1890, the total being 633.
Secretary Long made public a
signed statement, dealing with a ru
mor that he had made a statement to
the cabinet deploring the killing of
Filipinos without provocation and
the looting of private houses in paci
fied communities, knowledge of which
he claimed to have acquired from let
ters from sailors, that was as extraor
dinary for what it didn't say as was
his open invitation to Schley, a day
or two before, to ask for a paced
court. of inquiry, in an authorized in
terviewv. Although he knows that he
is credited with lack of sympathy
with the Philippine policy of the ad
ministration, he did not say a word
in the statement, written for a paper
he knew to be friendly to him, per
sonally as well as politically. He
didn't even deny that he had protest
ed, at a cabinet meeting, against the
Philippine policy, but merely said
that he had never received any letters
from sailors, either about looting or
about firing on peaceable natives in
the Philippines. If he couldn't say
more, he would better not have said
anything. The country is already
surfeited with statements that do not
tell all the truth and denials that do

Political factions represent divis
ions, and divisions indicate strife and
a want of unity of sentiment and pur
pose in governmental questions. We
cannot expect all persons to see all
questions in the same light, nor can
we reasonably expect all persons to
fully comprehend the truth in any
department of thought, but when
persons of tne same general political
party become divided into factions, it
represents factional spirited people
and generally expresses character
which is morally as well as theoretic
etionalism in South Carolina in
the Degocraltic party for the last few
years has lgeen one of the misfortunes
of our State history. Conditions
have been taken advantage of by de
signinug politicians and factionalism
has been generafed and developed
perhaps as never heft re in all the his
tory of State politics. But waves of
political influences, somewhat like
waves of the seas, reach their zeniths
and boundary lines and soon or late
must break and lose their force, and
factionalism has evidently been rec
ognized as a commlon evil; and the
more intelligent and couservative
minded among the masses really
want peace. Occasionally some nar
row-minded, little-spirited man tries
to fan up the old flame of factionial
ism, perhaps for some persorml gain
that he imagines may come to him,
but the great majority of peop)le want
peace and harmony, and will no lon
ger cot. sent to be subordinate to the
plans of political sharpers.
Governor Ellerbe labored hard to
suppress factionalism, and doubtless
contributed much towards putting it
down. One of the largest stars in his
political crown will be for having ex
erted his influence towards over
throwing the~ great evil in South
If we understand Governor M&
Sweene, be, too, will labor to ignore
all factional lines and only strive for~
the general good of the people of our:
State. He has the reputation of be-'
ing not only a sensible man, but of
moving up~on a high moral phgne,
practically advocating those broad,
generous principles which demhud
general resp~ect among men, the tap
proval of God, and which in thieir
very nature contribute to the general
good of humanity.
In any form of gneaol gnovenmant
there are political questions which
recessarilv interest and to some ex
tent agitate the minds of those con
cerned. There are generally different
political parties representing different
views. This is very natural and rea
sonable, but factionalism is on a dif
ferent plane. While it assumes the
task of settling political questions, it
is very largely grounded upon pref
erences and prejudices in regard to
individuals, and does harm rather
than contribute to the help of gov
One of the hopeful signs of our
time is a growing aversion among
the masses to factionalistm.
The longer we live and the more
we think, the rore we are inclined to
the belief that all organiz.itions or
principles which tend to encourage
narrowness or clannishness are a curse
to humanity rather than a blessing.
It does not make any difference
whether the organization is included
technically in wh.at is called the
church or not, nor does it make anmy
difference whether or riot it boasts of
being foun del upon this or that Bi
ble principle, if it tends to make its
adherents clannish, it is a curse.
