After a week's rest we return, not
with an inclination to work, but
rather with a desire to go back to min
gle with friends with whom we come
in contact only once a year, and with
whom we always enjoy the relaxation
of a few days away from care.
The Stato Press Association held
its twenty-fifth annual meeting at
Harris' Lithia Springs, and so de
lighted were the members with this
beautiful place and health-giving re
sort, that they decided to return there
Nature and energy have made Har
ris' an ideal place for a convention or
an association meeting. The hotel is
commodious and clean; the manage
ment is under the care of Mr. R. L.
Fox. who sees to it that guests are
shown every attention, and their
pleasures are looked after so that not
a minute is left for home-sickness;
the table is as good as any of the
best hotels in the country and the ser
vice is excellent. But after all, people
go to this resort for health, and it is
here to be found. Under our per
sonal observation we saw a lady who,
when she arrived at the hotel, was
unable to walk a step, she had to be
carried about in the arms of her de
voted son. The day before we left
for home, it was our pleasure to meet
this lady walking up a hill from the
spring and complaining of hunger.
Another case is a man who had been
to the famous Buffalo Lithia Springs
and, after giving the waters a fair
test, came away without deriving any
benefit. He was induced to go to
Harris', and after a two weeks' stay
he told the writer he was being
greatly benefited and would remain
at the springs for some time yet.
We have no hesitancy in advising
our readers, if their health is im
paired, or if they want a few weeks of
real pleasure, go to Harris' Lithia
Springs. There is another and very
important advantage at this place,
the people of the neighborhood take
a warm interest in the hotel, and they
render the management great aid in
the entertainment of guests, making
people away from home feel perfectly
comfortable and happy. The guests,
too, seem to be organized into one
great big happy family with Col. J.
T. Bacon as the paternal head, and
the children are permitted to go un
restrained. Every afternoon and eve
ning there is dancing; the music is
furnished by a band of fine musi
cians and the concerts they give, are
alone worth a trip to hear.
We said that this is an ideal place
for the gathering of a convention or
an association, and it is; away from
the hotel a shcrt distance is a large
ball well ventilated which is placed at
disposal for such occasions, and when
the time comes to call a meeting
those interested can always be count
ed on being present, whereas, if the
meeting took place in a city or town
the members would be out sight
seeing and the meetings would be
The press gang have never had a
pleasanter gathering; everybody en
joyed themselves and some of the
papers read, not only did credit to
the writers, but to the association.
Mr. August Kohn read a paper on
"How to Get News" that should ap
pear in every paper in South Caro
lina; it would give newspaper readers
an idea what newspapers are, and
how they should be appreciated, in
other words Mr. Kohn's paper was
devoid of "frills," and it was filled
with good, sound and logical infor
Mrs. Virginia D. Young read a
paper which was deservedly well re
ceived, and it, too, was full of valua
ble information and did great credit
to the writer and to her sex.
There were other papers listened
to with much interest, and the dis
cussions showed that editors could
talk as well as write.
Among the courtesies extended was
a cask of "Belle of Carolina" beer from
tbc Augusta Brewing Co., Augusta,
Ga. Upon receiving the information
that the South Carolina Press Associ
ation had swooped down on Harris'
springs, and would remain for a few
days, and having some knowledge of
the tastes of our honored president,
that Mrt. V irginia D. Young would
b3 safely looked after by Mr. N. G.
Gonzales, editor of the State, they sent
the "Belle of Carolina" with their corm
pliments and a further expression that
the association would find pleasure in
the gift. It wa very nice and thought
ful, for our president to inform the
Augusta Brewery of our presence at
the springs, and it was a very grace
ful compliment the Augusta Brewery
paid us in making the gift, for it was
greatly enjoyed by the whole gang,
including all of the ladies. Notwith
standing the fact that some wore blue
ribbons, when a toast was offered
that "Here's to the health of the
'Belle of Carolina,' may she live long
and prosper," not a soul remained sit
ting and to make it more impressive
the toast was repeated as often as the
cask held the supply. The "Belle of
Carolina" is a good beer, clear, spark
ling and light,and the Augusta Brew
ing Company could not have found a
more appreciative set to make a gift
to and one that could appreciate it
It was our pleasure to listen to the
address of Col. Pleasant Stovall of
Savannah, and to say it was a treat
would not be doing justice to an ad
dress which in our opinion could not
have been prepared in a short space
of time. Colonel Stovall's address
was a gem of oratory, a revelation of
thought, and a word picture of Mexi
co which fastened itself upon the
brain more effectively than a three
months tour through that republic
could have done. Editor Hook of
Augusta was with us too, and while
he enjoyed the sight of South Caroli
na editors drinking Augusta's "Belle
of Carolina," he would not join us but
contented himself with the sparkling
water of the Lithia Spring and the
pleasentries of the "boys." It was
decided to take a trip to Cuba next
February, and a special committee
which will hereafter be known as the
"Cuban Junta" was appointed to
make all necessary arrangements.
This committee is composed of Major
E. H. Aull, News and Herald, August
Kohn, News and Courier, N. G. Gon
zales, State, and being located in
Columbia and together, they will be
able to get up a fine trip at a very
small expense. Colonel Stovall and
Editor Hook are to accompany our
association to Cuba. And wo hope
that President Aull will not fail
to keep the Augusta Brewing compa
ny posted as to time we are start.
Harris Lithia Springs is splendidly
situated, on the crest of the hill is the
spacious hotel, and down in a valley
are several springs, Lithia, sulphur,
and Iron. Thbe lithia is of course, the
one most sought after, but we are
told that the other springs have good
medicinal properties. In front of the
hotel the landscape is a beautiful
natural scenery that would throw an
artist into ecstacies, the atmosphere
is mild and the nights are cool. The
hotel 'is within two miles of two rail
road station Cross Hill on the South
ern, and Waterloo on the Charleston
and Western Carolina; the trains are
met with easy riding carriages and
fine teams. Mr. Harris Bristow who
has charge of this department relieves
the guests of the trouble of bothering
with baggage and every thing is de
livered at once. The South Carolina
Press Association showed their appre
ciation of a good thing when they
'voted to return to Harris Lithia
Springs next year, and this, in the
face of many invitations from various
other points. ____
The Supreme Court, through jus
tice Gary, has recently handed down
a very important decision regarding
the carrying of concealed weapons.
In short the decision means that no
officer, including sheriff, deputies, or
State constables, are allowed to carry
weaons concealed. The decision is
clearly the result of conflicting legis
lation, one Statute having been pass
e in 1880 forbidding the carrying of
concealed weapons, except by officers
while in actual discharge of their du
ties and by persons while on their
own premises, and another act in
1897 upon the same subject, practic
ally repeating the language of the
former act, witir the important omis
sion that no exemption was made for
officers carrying weapons while in the
discharge of their official duties. The
court holds that the latter act repeals
the former, and that under this con
struction all persons whatever, in
cluding constables and other officers,
are prohibited from carry wveapons
without having them exposed.
U.nder the present rulings of the
court it is indeed a bad law, and the
next session of the Legislature should
wipe out all former Legislation upon
the subject and pass an act setting
out in no unmistakeable terms just
what the law is, and who should be
allowed to carry weapons, and at the
same time giving sheriffs, deputies,
and constables, the right to carry
wveapons in whatever manner they
see fit while in the discharge of their
offiial duties. A sheriff or his depu
ty, for instance, is supposed to be
armed all the time. He is the chief
guardian of the peace, and no man is
in position to command the peace
unless he is in positen to enforce his
commands, with arrest if necessary.
The respect which rowdies and dis
turbers of the peace give to an officer
of the law is usually the fear they
have of being arrested, and this arises
is armed and equipped to enforce his
commands. To take away an officers
right to carry arms when he deems
it necessary is practically taking away
his authority as an officer, and to re
quire that whenever an important
officer sees fit to go armed he must
go around like a rowdy, with the hilt
of a pistol sticking out of his pocket,
will but lessen his power to command
respect and lower the dignity of his
office. The law on this concealed
weapon subject is becoming terribly
complicated, and we hope the Genec
al Assembly will straighten it out at
its next session.
In fact we are almost of the opin
ion that it would be well to wipe the
whole law from the statute books,
and let all men be put on equality.
Then a gentleman who obeys the law
would not be at the mercy of a row
dy who pays no attention to it.
Mr. W. B. Wilson has returned to
Charleston from his trip to Los An
geles. His reports to the News and
Courier from California were reai
with great interest, and the News and
Courier was fortunate in selecting him
as its correspondent. Wilson is an all
round man. He can manage a huge
commercial enterprise, manipulate a
convention to further the interests of
his home, and he can write a very in
teresting newpaper story. We yet
expect to know that "Billy" Wilson
is Mayor of Charleston. He'd make
a fine one.
The Columbia State sprung a new

premises, with all its hereditaments
and appurtenances in any wise inci
dent thereto or appertaining," the
prime consideration being that Lex

It seems funny to think of General
Wheeler seeking a place in the Phil
ippines to fight directly against what
he fought for during the civil war.
The South fought for her civil rights
and Wheeler was a noble fighter with
her. The Filipinos are fighting
against the Americans taking their
land and all they have away from
them, and Joe Wheeler could not rest
until he was sent there to help kill
the poor creatures.
It is hard to say, but it really looks
as if the little General has become a
hobbyist on the subject of notoriety.
His services at Santiago gave him a
noble fame to die with. That would
have been a fine time for him to quit

(From our Regular Correspondent.)
Washington, July 28.-That the
administration fears Alger and the
disclosures he may make after next
Tuesday, when he will turn the war
department over to Mr. Elihu Root
who will become Secretary of WXar
on that day, is shown by the fre
quency with which leading support
ers of Mr. McKinley's policy are giv
ing interviews to newspapers jollying
Alger along as the victim of persecu
tion, and predicting that time wvill
vindicate him and his administration
of the war department. The object
of these interviews is to keep Alger's
mouth shut. Whether the ruse will
succeed only time can tell. For
months Alger's personal friends and
hangers-on have been making threats
as to what he would do if hie was
forced out of the cabinet, and inti
mating that he could tell things that
would shift responsibility which he
has been made to bear to other
shoulders. It is now up to Alger
and he must show whether there was
foundation for those threats or
whether they were merely a part of a
bluffing game he played to try to re
main in the cabinet, after he knew he
was expected to get out. Another
scheme is also being wvorked to keep
Alger quiet through the pockets of
himself and friends. It has been hint
ed to him that some Cuban and Porto
Rican business deals in which he
and his friends are financially inter
ested will be knocked out if lie at
tempts to smirch the administration,
wvhile they will be let alone if he
keeps mum about administration se
The navy department seems also
to have some 5-ke experts. In order
to prevent the battleships Ohio, Mis
souri and Maine, now being built,
drawing so much water that they
could not enter half of our largest
seaports, it has been found necessary
to change their plans by substituting
11-inch for 12-inch armor and 12-inch
guns for 13-inch guns.
Representative Clayton of Alabama
attended the recent meeting of the
Democratic national committee, of
which he is a member, and while in
Washington this week he talked very
interestingly of political matters. For
instance, he said: "I learned while in
gate to the next national Democratic
conventiou, and I do not violate any
confidence in saying that if future
developments should give a peculiar
emphasis to any public question, and
should lead a majority of the dele
gates to regard any other faithful
Democrat as better fitted to lead the
party, Mr. Bryan will arise in his
place in the convention and support
that candidate. I know that he. Las
no selfish purposes to serve, and re
gards victory for the party as para
mount to any ambitions which he
may have. I look upon Bryan's re
noiniualion as a foregoue conclusion.

mon democracy of the country, as no
other man has or could have. The
Democratic masses support him with
out regard to section. He is stronger
than any faction of the party, and
can comle nearer to uniting all the
elements of the party than any other
If Secretary Root is to be only the
legal adviser of the war department,
who is going to direct its nilitary
affairs? That is likely to become an
important question when active ope
rations in the Philippines begin
again. Gen. Miles would be the
proper official, but there is nothing
in sight to indicate that he is to be
allowed any more authority than he
has wielded since Adjutant General
Corbin began, at the opening of the
war with Spain, to perform the du
ties which properly belonged to the
commanding general of the army. It
was supposed that Alger directed
Corbin, and it has been intimated
that Mr. McKinley will do so in the
future. Mr. McKinley was doubtless
a brave soldier, but the historians
neglected to record the campaigns in
which he commanded an army. Of
course, every schoolboy knows that
the constitution makes the President
commauder-in-chief of the United
States army and navy, but that au
thority has usually only been exer
cised to direct a general policy, leav
ing military operations to be directed
by trained soldiers. Perhaps Mr.
icKinley intends giving the country
an innovation by actually assuming
command of the army and navy.
The newspaper censorship of Gen.
Otis cannot be duplicated in this
country, but perhaps Mr. McKinley
intended to show his sympathy for
the method when he ordered that no
newspaper men should be allowed in
the special train which carried him
and his party from Washington to
the shore of Lake Champlain, where
he will remain for an indefinite pe
riod. This is the first time that any
President has objected to being ac
companied by newspaper men when
going from Washington on a pleas
