THE RECENT ELECTIONS.
The battle of ballots in several of
the States last week resulted in
a division of opinion as to the ef
fect on the present national ad
ministration. The republican press
regard the result as an endorsement
of President McKinley's foreign poli
cy as well as an endorsement of his
entire administration, including his
American-Spanish war policy. The
democratic press, on the other hand,
claim the falling off of votes in Re
publican Ohio, the sweeping defeat
of republicanism in Nebraska, and the
placing of Maryland in the demo
cratic column again, a loud rebuke
to the admistration, a protest against
monopolies, trusts and combines, a
warning against a large standing
army, a repudiation of imperialism
and millitaris:n, but in our humble
judgment the vote of last weel had
very little to do with the contest next
year. When both parties launch
forth their platforms, and place their
candidates thereon, the issues may
be entirely different, from what they
are at present.
We are almost certain both parties
will put forward the same leaders,
McKinley will represent the repub
licans and Bryan the democrats, that
is if the Democratic National Convan
tion reaffirms the Chicago platform,
but if a compromise is effected and
free silver is dropped, it will be hard
to say who will lead the democratic
host. There are many democrats
who want the silver plank taken out
of the platform, and go before the
- -pana with solid ranks against trusts,
and imperialism. Bryan is so com
mitted to silver he cannot afford to
stand upon a compromise platform,
and if the convention fails to hold on
to the silver plank he will have to
give away. Bryan is, in our opinion
the ablest leader the party has, and
we believe he can poll more votes
than any other democrat, but can he
win? The Republicans are behind
the trenches and they have all of their
exposed positions armored with gold,
can Bryan storm the Republican bat
teries with sufficient force to capture
them? If the people throughout the
North and East were permitted to
exercise their choice perhaps the story
would be different, but where their
very existance depends upon those
who are interested in the trusts and
monopolies the outlook is certainly
discouraging to wrest the government
from those in control now. Politi
cians may figure and theorize as they
may, but the fact, remains,that in this
day of greed for gold, the party
having the fattest purse, is the surest
The news from the English-Trans
vaal war is getting scarce. The

about as tough a time as the Ameri
cans in the Philippines.

The State fair was nmagnificently
managed this year, and while the
committee deserve credit for the very
fine show, Colonel Thomas Holloway
the Secretary and Treasurer, is en
titled to the thanks and the praise of
the people, for it was him at last,
upon whom the bulk of the work and
management fell upon; the way he
handled the immense throng each
day was wonderful and his exhibits
were highly satisfactory.
During fair week in Columbia the
politicians of all grades, and from
everywhere were in evidence, and
there was any quantity of hobnob
bing for the futuire. The political
sails were being trimmed for the
State campaign next summer, and
the indications are, that the cam
paigners will need to carry refrigera

The plan suggested by this paper to

There seems to be an almost unan
mous sentiment fcr Governor Mc
Sweeney to be his own successor, so
well has he managed the helm of the
ship of State. The Prohibition lead
ers held a conference, but from what
we could gather it was the old case
of "marching up the hill and down
again" they did very little, but we
suspect they will direct their efiorts
towards capturing the legislature
which is the most practical plan if
they are in earnest to secure prohibi
tion legislation. The main fight
next summer will be for a successor
to B. R. Tillman's seat in the United
States Senate, L. W. Youmans of
Barnwell, and A. C. Jones of New
berry are said to be candidates, and
of course Senator Tillman will give
these gentlemen all the entertainment
on the stump they aro looking for.
Youmans will be remembered as the
man with the huge moustache who
made such a hot fight in 1892 on
the Sheppard ticket, and Jones is
the man that conducted the Prohi
bition campaign last year and after
the battle was over, announced him

Washington, Nov. 14. - "A Bryan
triumph" is what nearly every demo
crat and many'republicans see in the
results of the State elections, and
it is not likely that there will be any
more serious talk of anybody else for
the head of the democratic ticket, next
year. Col. Bryan's magnificient suc
cess in his own State, where he large
ly inc.reased the fusion majority in
the face of many obstacles, including
the influence of the Federal adminis
tration and the lavish expenditure of
money by the republicans, aroused
admiration even among his oppo
Boss Hanna's success in Ohio,
probably the most costly campaign
ever carried on in a single State, is
accepted as having knocked the bot
tom out of all the schemes to spring
an anti-McKinley candidate on the
republicans, and, unless something of
a scandalous nature should be fasten
ed upon his administration between
now, and the meeting of the republi
can national convention, Mr. McKin
ley will not be opposed for renomi
nation; but a strong element in the
republican party, including many of
its prominent men in Congress, have
already began to demand of Mr. Mc
Kinley that he depose King Hanna
before the Presidential campaign
opens. That will not be an easy job,
as Hanna has as much justification in
claiming his dearly paid for victory
in Obio as a personal vindication as
Mr. McKinley has in claiming it as
an endorsement of imperialism by
Imperialism run mad may be look
ed for in future acts of the adminis
tration, as Mr. McKinley and all his
cabinet have succeeded in persuading
themselves into believing that the
State elections were an endorsement
of imperialism by the people, not
withstanding the anti-imperialist vic
tories in Nebraska, and in Maryland.
The result in Ohio was not an en
dorsement of anything except the
power of money corruptly spent.
Owing to the large number of
Maryland democrats engaged in bus
iness in Washington there has been
unusual rejoicing at the National
capital on account of the return of
that State to the democratic fold,
from which it would never have stray
ed had there not been a bitter family
row in the democratic camp. Mary-.
land democrats are very positive in
saying that they can keep the State
in line now that the party is again
Now that there is no campaign to
influence, it is admitted by members
of the administration that tbe move
ment to capture Aguinaldo and his
army, which it was officially announc
ed the day before election could not
possibly fail, has met with delays
which it is feared will give Aguinialdo
time enough to get away.
General Joe Wheeler has written
that he will take his seat in the House
during the coming session of Con
gress, but as he has not left Manila
yet, so far as known in Washington,
and it will take between six and eight
weeks for him to make the trip, he
cannot be at the opening of Congress.

General Wheeler appear in the House
to take the oath his status would be
entirely different to that occupied by
him when objection was raised to his
resuming his seat in the House while
holding the commission of a major
general of volunteers, on the ground
that his acceptance of a commission
in the army vacated his seat in the
House, an objection which was sus
tained by the committee of which
Speaker-to-be Henderson was chair
man, and which would have been
sustained by the House bad not the
personal popularity of General
Wheeler been so great that the House
declined to consider the report on
the plea that there was not time
enough, owing the nearness of the
end of the session. When General
Wheeler's present commission briga
dier general of volunteers was given
him he was not a member of the
House, although he had been elected
as such. Consequently no objection
will be made to his beiag sworn in as
a member whenever lie presents him
self, but the moment be takes the
oath as a member of the House he
will cease to bb a brigadier general.
Secretary Gage says he thinks the
State elections were an order to the
republicans in Congress to put the
single gold standard into a law. Dem
ocrats only hope that he will be able
to convince the republican leaders in
Congress to think the same way.
Admiral Dewey caried his special
ty of doing things before others think
he is ready to do them into the ar

days ago he procured his marriage
license, and he is married now almost

more about it.
Chamberlain's Pain Balm Cures Others,

My wite has been using Chamberlain's
Pain Balm, with good results, for a lame

for nine years. We have tried all kinds of
medicines and doctors without receiving
any benefit from any of them. One day

and thought of trying it, which we did
with the best of satisfaction. She has used
only one bottle and her shoulder is almost
well. Adolph L. Millett, Manchester, N.H.

A Good Suggestion.
Editor TuE TIMLs:
This is an age of steam and elec
tricity; progression on all sides, in
everything except public roads. The
same old ruts that the cows started
years ago we are traveling in today.
What we need is a complete revolu
tion in this respect. The people, the
rich and poor demand this, and the
man who can push successfully to
completion a good system of public
roads, the nearest route of course, all
things being equal-would prove to
be a public benefactor.
Summerton and vicinity need a
first class road by the nearest line to
Manning, our county seat; Manning
needs the same road. The present
road is a zig-zag route, twice the dis
tance, almost required. We need
good public roads equally as much
if not more than we need railroads.
If we wish to go to Columbia or the
upper part of the State, from our
section, we have to get up before
day, in order to drive to Manning
over this same zig-zag route to catch
the train at Manning. Help us to
get this new and direct road, so that
we can save time and therefore
money. The claims of this just cause
are so apparent, that I shall not
add a word more.

must study the markets just as a lawyer or doctor must
study his books. T'his must be done or he cannot buy
his goods to meet competition.
