The Dreyfus farcial trial still drags
its way along, and judging frorm the
demeanor of the President of the
court, there will be another convic
tion. For humanity's sake the United
States put a stop to the cruelty of
Spain in Cuba, and if Dreyfus is con
victed again in the face of the evi
dence as published, some near-by for
eign power should, for humanity's
sake, interfere and prevent the pun
ishment. It does not look right for
civilized governments to look indiffer
ently on and see, even one man cruelly
and unjustly punished, and it is as
humane for a government to interfere
for one innocent man as it is for
thousands. The principle is the same.
Germany and Italy are the govern
ments that should speak .and act, as
Dreyfus is charged with selling his
government's secrets to them. If he
did not, they should say so and for
bid ais punishment.
The press of South Carolina mourns
the death of Col. Franz Melchers,
which occured last Sunday night at
his home in Charleston, the city he
loved so well. Colonel Melchers was
the editor of the only German news
paper published in the State-the
-"Deusche Zeitung." He stood high
among his newspaper brethern, and
as a citizen he was beloved through
out the State. Colonel Melchers was,
born in Germany, but when the call
to arms came he was among the first
to respond in defense of his adopted
State, and in war and in peace his
record was pure and enviable. Col
Melchers was one of natures noble
men, and no one could come in con
Stact with him but what would go
away impressed with his gentleness
and nobleness of heart. He loved
his, adopted State and served her
with fidelity. He was indeed a pa
triot, scholar and a gentleman, and
by his death the editors throughout
the State loses a true friend, and the
country loses one of her noblest citi
There has been some agitation re
cently over the question of "Income
returns" and according to the pub
lished reports Clarendon is among
those classed as having no incomes
returned. We do not know why this
is so, because this county certainly
has a number of persons and institu
tions liable under the income tax law.
The man with the little ox must pay
his taxes with no chance to hide; that
little oxens tail will stick out and the
Auditor is sure to find it, and put its
value on the tax books, then why not
get at those who have incomes and
make them pay their just portion of
the taxes. The people are constantly
crying against high taxes, and yet if
they know a man who is a tax dodg
er they will not report him. We be
lieve if everything liable to taxation
was properly returned, there would
be less cause for complaint about
high taxes. This tax problem is one
of the hardest public men have to
contend with, there is no man in pub
lic life who does not want to devise
some practical plan to lighten taxa
tion, and yet notwithstanding this
desire, we cannot see how it can be
done without first arousing the peo
ple to the necessity of reporting tax
dodgers; stop this dodging and more
money will come into treasury, hence
a lighter levy.

Washington, Sept. 1.-Washington
democrats are much pleased with the
nomination of Hon. John 11. McLean
for governor, by the Ohio democratic
State Convention, not only because
they believe him to be a strong can
didate but because they like the man
and think the Ohio democrats honor
ed themselves in honoring him.
Those who know what is going on
under the surface, in Washington,
are wondering whether 3r.McKinley
is going to be so unwise as tv allow
himself to be used by the little clique
of New York millionaires to in
crease the value of their property in
Santo Domingo, by putting his fin
gers in the revolution now going on
there. They have had power enough
to bring Secretary Hay back to Wash
ington two weeks earlier than he was
expected, and it is understood to be
at their request that Mr. McKinley
will return tomorrow, instead of a
week later. They are not asking
mueb! Only that Mr. McKinley will
stop the revolution and declare a U. S.
protectorate over Santo Domingo. A
nice mess that would be, with all the
other race troubles we already have
on our hands.
The rush for commissions in the
new volunteer regiments for the Phil
ippines is greater now than it was for
those in the ten regiments recently
organized, but reports from the va
rious recruiting stations show that
enlistments are much slower,so much
slower that the War Department has
notified all the recruiting officers that
they are expected to get more recruits
than they have been getting.
A prominent Boston business man,
who was in Washington this week
said of the platform that will be adopt
ed by the Massachusetts democratic
State Convention, which will meet
Sept. 21: "It will reaffirm every
plank of the Chicago instrument, will
roast the trusts in stinging English,
denounce the inhuman massacre of
the liberty-loving Filipinos, and de
clare that the imperialist policy of
McKinley, if unchecked, will be the
death knell of the republic." The
same man predicted that Massachu
setts would send a solid Bryan dele
gation to the National Convention.
In view of the promise niade in the
official proclamation of the Philippine
Commission, issued last April, that
"Local funds collected for local pur
poses, shall not be diverted to other
ends," there is ground for the com
plaints at Manila, reported by uncen
sored cablegrams, via Hong Kong,
on account of the action of General
Otis in using funds collected as local
taxes for the support of the army.
The country was told that every ef
fort would be made by the adminis
tration to obtain the confidenee of
the peaceable Filipinos. Taking the
taxes collected fir local benefit to
help support an'invading army will
strike most persons as a very poor
way to obtain the confidence of the
Filipinos. It was because cf broken
promises that they revolted against
Spain. The McKinley administration
as repeatedly stated its entire ap
proval of the acts of General Otis; it
is therefore directly responsible for
this wrongful use of money collected
over there. It may have been the
knowledge that a portion of the ex
penses of the large army in the Phil
ippines was to be paid with taxes
collected from the natives which
prompted Secretary Gage to say that
neither additional war taxes nor more
bonds would be necessary to meet
the increased expenditures caused by:
the increased army. The American
people, as a whole, regardless of indi
vidual opinions as to the future of the
Philippines, will never endorse a na
tional policy that includes deception
nd oppression of a weaker people.
Such a policy will quickly wipe out
Mr. McKinley's platitudes about the
Stars and Stripes standing for the
same thing in the Philippines that
they do in this country. The people
of this country would not allow such
imposition upon themselves, nor will
they stand for its being practiced1
upon the people of any other country
by the government of the U. S. For
tunately the days of reckoning with
the officials of our government are
not so far apart as they are in other
Sb much has been written about
the better class of Cuban's favoring
annexation that most readers have ac
epted it as a fact, but a New York
business man who was recently in
Havanna declares that he hunted in
vain for this alleged annexation senti
ment among any class of Cubans. He
says that after talking with all clpsses
of Cubans he became satisfied that
the predominating sentiment towards
the U. 5. among them was hatred.
He thinks this is because of differ
ence ~in race and customs, a differ
ence that is practically permanent.
'his gentleman was not prejudiced.
He went to Havana believing in the
existence of a strong annexation sen
timent and was disappointed because
he could not find it.1
Robbed the Grave.
A startling incident, of which Mr. John
Oliver of Philadelphia. was the subject, is
narratted by him as follows: "I was in a
most dreadful condition. My skin was
almost yellow, eyes sunken, tongue coated,
pain continually in back and sides, no ap
petite-gradually growing weaker day by
day. Three physicians had given me up.
Fortunately, a friend advised trying Elec
tric Bitters; and to my great joy and sur
prise, the first bottle made a decided im
provement. I continued their use for three
weeks, and am now a well man. I know
they saved my life, and robbed the grave
of another victim." No one should fail to
try them. Only 50 ets per bottle at Rt. _B.

Early in the summer from what we could gather from the great
ry goods journals of* the count ry. all classes of goods would advance
ary materially before the approaching ffall season would open, and
e at once set about to place our orders for Fall Goods, which now
sults in our being able to name prices on many lines much cheaper
tan many of our competitors buy them.
Now this statement may have the sound of arrogance, but all
e ask of those who doubt is, visit our store and see our goods and
rices and we will convince them of the reliability of this statement.
One other fact we would like to impress upon our patrons, that
iction goods and job lots never eiter our store, for experience has
ught us that such stuff never gives satisfaction. There is nothing
ke nice, new, fresh goods-sold at the right prices.
If there is any department in our store irn which we take a
eater interest than any of the rest, it is the Dress Goods Depart
ent, and if there is any part of the store service in which we take
eater pleasure, it is in serving our lady friends. Ladies, don't feel
tat you are imposing on us when you come to our store to look at
)ods, it is a pleasure for us to show you. It matters not whether
)u buy or not, we will serve you with pleasure and we would have
>u feel like it was a pleasure for us to wait upon you.

We are showing this season the prettiest line of Black Crepons,
ir Ladies' Skirts, ever shown in this town, at 50c, 75c and $1 per

oods at 25c per yard, in Plain and Fancy, is the strongest we have
er shown. You will be pleased when you see our beautiful line
Dress Goods this season.
It is a Iact that goes without saying that we have given to the
dies of this town a Millinery Department unequalled by any in
is part of the State. Our Millinery opening this season will be
e most elaborate we have ever undertaken.
Our MISS COPPEDGE is now in Philadelphia buying our fall
ock and studying the styles. She will remain in Philadelphia and
altimore until the 15th of this month. Miss Coppedge will buy
ir stock from the largest Millinery houses on this continent, and

The ladies will be notified in due time when we will have our
ress Goods and Millinery Opening.

r cheap, trashy stuff.
We are sole agents for the famous H. C. Godman black bottom
ies for Ladies and Children. We feel justified in saying that the
.C. G3odman Shoe for Ladies at $1.50 is the best shoe ever put
>o the market for this money. This is the testimony of those
ho have worn them.
It will pay you to see our line of all solid Ladies' Shoes at $1,
25, 1.50, 2.00, 2.50 and 3.00 per pair. In short, we have a line of
