A BATTLE OF GIANTS.
The Yorkville Enquirer and the
Columbia State are furnishing the
public with some excellent specimens
of editorial learning. The editors of
these two papers must keep their
Atlases and Encyclopedias at their
sides all of the time so as to be able
to treat the questions arising from the
national administration's foreign pol
icy. The State is disposed to treat
the Enquirer with a degree of haugh
tiness and superiority; it perches
high up, and looks down on its week
ly contempory to inform it that "it is
not in its class," but the Enquirer
comes back at the State with such an
array of magnificently written editor
ials, showing itself a close student
and well versed in foreign affairs, that
the public are becoming interested,
:;a is watching the contest between
these editorial giants. There is no
doubt about it, Gonzales is a fine
writer, and when it comes to treating
European questions he does so in a
learned, and an attractive manner,
but fortunately for future mankind,
the world posseses "others" who make
a study of government, and foreign
policies, and who have access to At
lases and reference books, were this
not true, the passing away of editor
Gonzales would leave this world of
ours in darkness. There is no law or
reason why the editor of a daily paper
should be posessed of more learning
than his brother of a weekly, and the
discussion now going on between the
State and Enquirer shows clearly that
editor Grist of the Enquirer has pro
duced a very strong argument on the
Eastern question, and one which will
put its readers to wondering why it
is,that the metropolitan dailies in this
State are keeping out of their columns
all matter tending to throw light upon
the Eastern question.
We read the correspondence be
tween the Spartanburg mill men and
Senators McLaurin and Tillmnan, and
regretted the short-sightedness dis
played by our dailies in not giving it
to their readers; it looked as if there
was a hidden purpose in keeping this
correspondence from the people. The
people hear of these things, and it
was not long before a demand came
from them for county newspapers to
publish this correspondence-a cor
respondence which attracted all of
the leading newspapers in the United
States, and although it was "warmed
over news" the weeklies complied
with the demand, and the people
were given a chance to ge: a peep
into the other side of a question
which the dailies so persistently with
hold from them.
It will not do for the State or any
other paper to assume superiority,
it must win superiority by making its
case clear and1 indisputable; to say
"you are not in our class" is a sign of
weakness and gives an adversary the
advantage and, tends to confirm the
feeling that the daily newspapers in
this State are not in close touch with
the people, instead of fulfilling the
functions of purveyors of news, they
seek to direct sentiment, -and force
the people to accept the dicta of their
editors. One of the most brilliant
editors South Carolina ever had was
the lamented Dawson-his influence
was most powerful, he could at a
breath from the News and Courier,
make or unmake men, but his, was
in another day-times have changed
and with them fresti blood and strong
brain has been infused into the i'eins
of the editorial tripod-dailies as well
as the weeklies. Gonzales was train
ed under Dawson and, in many re
spects he is just as able a man, but
with all of his ability he cannot suc
cessfully play Dawson's role. He
wastes time whenever he attempts
it-times have changed. Dawson, if
he was here today would find himself
without an occupation were he to at
tempt his "puff and crush" methods,
and to withhold matter which should
go to the public is nothing more nor
less than a scheme to crush out those
who are independent in thought and
The weekly press is no longer con
fined to the limits of matters of pure
ly local concern, its readers have
caught the progressive spirit, and
they want to keep abreast of the
times, hence it is necessary for the
editors to devote their spare moments
to stndy and seeking ;inomnan
upon all subjects, and we believe
there are a number of men in this
State editing weekly newpapers who
can compare very favorably with the
learned Gonzales, among those we
have in mind, is Grist of the Enquirer.
His editorials in the controversy with
the State evince a wonderful amount
of research, they are logical, finely
put, and would win praises for the
editor of a metropolitan daily. It
sounds very cheap to talk about not
being in the "same class," that does
very well for a Jefferies to say of a
McCoy, but it will not do for a Gon
zales to say of a Grist. Come to the
scratch friend State and if our mu
tual friend Enquirer opens your eyes
on the Eastern question, and lets into
your brain a light that has never been
there before, acknowledge it, and we
assure you that "as little fellows"
who are forced to live on "greens and
taters, kase dad's not driv the cows
up yit" will not chuckle, but we will
go right on shucking our corn, and
sing, "while the lamp holds out to
burn, the vilest sinner may return."
The tirades of abuse that has been
heaped upon Admiral Dewey for
giving his bride the home presented
to him by the people has made the
old hero very angry, and if he could
do so he would return the money to
those who contributed.
'Our soldiers in the Philppines are
on the road to end the war. Aguin

in the United States.
Hon. J. Dudley Haselden gives a
very emp e denial to the breast
plate story, and we have no doubt he
will find friends who will make afli
davit that what he says about it is so;
why even, the men at the Marion
Iron works certify that the breastplate
made for Mr. Haselden was all "tork."
The war in the Transvaal continues
to prove a disappointment to England,
and is costing that country many
more lives and much more money
than was calculated on. England
will whip the Boers we have not the
slightest doubt but when she accom
plishes the feat there will be little
glorj in it for her.
Since the deplorable happening at
Sellers, between Hon. J. D. Haselden
with his tribe of warriors, and Messrs
ohn and Ben Sellers,readers of news
papers have discovered the existence.
of "tork steel." We wonder if MIr. Has
elden can enlighten the public with
any information on another kind of
steal? It really does seem from past
events that there is steal and steel.
The conveneing of the General As
sembly will soon take place and the
whole country will be on the look out
to see what the law-makers are going
to do with the dispensary. No doubt,
the controversies in the newspapers
together with other causes have has
tened a desire on the part of the peo-I
pe for something to be done, and
frcmn what we can gather something
will be done to very materially re
duce the opportunities for scandals.
We rather expect there will be a
flood of bills relating to dispensary
legislation, at the opening of the ses
sion; there is hardly a member of the
General Assembly who has not given
thought and study to the subject, but
just who wlll discover a scheme which
will work most satisfactory remalns
to be seen.

With such a condition of affairs, the business man is
put to his trumps to study out the most effectual way of
meeting the people and sharing their burdens, to remedy
the bad effects caused by any turn in affairs which op
erate adversely to the people. It is unnecessary to in
troduce myself, to the readers of The Times, they know
me, and they know full well that my many years of ex
perience, both as a farmer and a merchant, give me a de
cided advantage over many others. I have used my ex
perience that it may count for the best interests of my
business. In doing this I had to study the needs and
and wants of my patrons, studying their condition as
well as their welfare, because upon their welfare de
pends my success. Every business man, to keep up
with the progressive spirit now pervading this country
must study the markets just as a lawyer or doctor must
study his books. This must be done or he cannot buy
his goods to meet competition.
I have made deals by which I can sell goods at prices
that cannot be duplicated anywhere, and I am going to
