We lift our hats to our brethern of
the press for the nice things siid
about the issue of THE TixEs of 13th,
inst, and also to our business men for
their expressions of appreciation.
Among our exchanges, the Bam
berg Herald, edited and owned by
Mr. A. W. Knight, at one time Fore
man of THE TBurs is a bright and
newsy paper, intelligently edited and
shows all sings of prosperity, and we
hope that the people of Bamberg will
appreciate Mr. Knight's enterprise in
giving them a first class up-to-date
General Lawton while walking the
firing line encouraging his troops to
advance against the Fillipinos who
were in trnches was killed last Mon
day. Lawton's command was driv
ing the Fillipinos from SanMateo
section of country, northeast of Ma
nila at the time he was shot down.
Aguinaldo is still eluding capture,
and our men are being killed not
withstanding the fact, that the au
thorities claim to have the Fillipinos
The British were badly repulsed
at the battle near Stormberg, and
from the list of casulties it is evident
that Gen. Gata::re had a great many
of his men killed, and still many more
taken prisoners, and he also suffered
a serious loss in guns and equipment.
Tgis defeat of the British has given
much encouragement to the Dutch
Africanders and it is likely the Boer
forces will be joined by the Dutch in
Cape Colony to prevent General
Methuen from being reinforced at
Modder river. England in her un
righteous greed for gold and territory
is paying dearly, and the longer the
war lasts the more is it being realized
that President Kruger is determined
to make good his assertion "that it
will be the bloodiest war the world
Charleston is to have a canning
factory; thiis is a start in the right
direction, provided she put somebody
in charge of the enterprise who has
more to recommend him than being
a member of an aristocratic family.
In these days of practical business it
requires men of brains and push, to
make a success of business. Char
leston is well located for a great many
industries, and we hope the day is
not far distant when we will be able
to see the old rookeries on Bay street
torn away and in their places build
ings wherein the laboring classes can
make a comfortable living.
We would also like to see the bus
ness men of Charleston get together
and put the cotton compresses on the
wharfs with the railroads running their
tracks into these compresses, and
then with the large amout of money
in that city we are sure Charleston
would again receive the cotton ship
ment she is naturally entitled to.
There is a bright future for Charles
ton we believe.
The agitation has again started u
with reference to the finishing of the
State House, the agitators of the
scheme say it can be done for about
$350,000. These people do not stop
to consider that this will necessitate
an increase in the State levy, and if
they succeed, it can only be done
at the expense of the institutions of
higher learning. The taxpayers are
complaining now, about taxes being
too biah and they will not submit to
an increase levy. It is all very nice
to have the State House completed,
and some day we hope it will be, but
just at this time the people are try -
ing to rid themselves of debts that
are hanging over them, and they
have had the good fortune this year
to do something in that direction;
after a few more years of good prices
for products, the people will shake off
their debts, and then they will be wil
ling to spend money to complete the
The gold standard bill has passed
the lower house of Congress by a vote
of 150 against, and 190 for the meas
ure. The Republicans voted solidly
for the bill, several Democrats voted
for the bill also. The South Carolina
delegation voted solidly against it.
The Senate will no doubt agree with
the House, and it will not be long
before the gold standard will be of
force; just how it will affect the coun
try remains to be seen, we are not
disposed to think that calamities will
follow the passage of the gold stand
ard act, nor do we think that its pas
sage will obstruct Democratic success.
If the people are dissatisfied with the
Republican administration they will
go to the polls next November, and
say so, but in our opinion the money
question will not figure so much as
will other questions that seein to not
be receiving much attention at pres
ent. If under the Republican ad
ministration, and the gold standard;
the people of the South can get seven
cents for their cotton, and the people
of the West eighty cents for wheat,
and the laborers of the North can be
employed at fair wages, and the oper
atives of the East on full time, we see
no occasion to get warm under the
collar. All the people want is peace,
happiness and prosperity, and they
will glorify any party that will give
them these things.
The Prohibitionists, through their
chairman, Mr. A. C. Jones of New
berry, have annonnced their intention
to go into the next campaign to make
a fight for their platform, incident
ally of course, for the offices that are
to be voted for. The people of this
State will not in our opinion, endorse
a prohibition platform, nor do they
want to see a prohibition lawv enacted,
what they do want is to be allowed
to have a voice in each county to say
what they prefer, and then be allow
ed to govern themselves after they
have given expression to their wishes.
Web have no doubt that some meni
in the prohibition party are sincere
advocates of that principle, but
there arc many w'lo are riding the
prohibition horse, hoping to get into
office thereby. Mr. Jones himself
has held position under the State gov
ernment prior to 1890, and we think
that he has given to the press his in
tention to try and get office again,
this time he wants to knock down a
big apple-the United States Senate.
Well, Jones may have a prohibition
horse hitched out, that he thinks may
take him to the Senate, but we don't.
WVe have a distinct recollection of the
prohibition horse that he tried to
ride to the legislature on in his home
county, but that horse fell down, and
died before getting out of the city
limits, and Mayor Evans had him
sent off to the bone yard. Mr. Jones
can do a more graceful stunt "totin~g"
a sample case for a Philadelphia dry
goods house, than he can do running
for office, and he had better stiok to
that which suits him best.
Some of the French newspapers
are asserting that with 100,000 sol
dir f England in South Africa
25,000 men could capture London.
The papers, however, fail to state
how the 25,000 are to cross to chan
nel. Doubtless the greatest naval
power in the world would have some
Col. William Elliott is to be oppo
sed for re-election to Congress by
Senator Joseph W. Barnwell of Char
leston. These two gentlemen will no
doubt make an interesting campaign
in the 1st district, and both are cap
able speakers. Charleston has not
had a Congressman for many years,
and she being the largest sea-port in
the district, and in the State, it does
seem that she should have a voice in
the national council. Senator Barn
well if chosen by the Democracy of
that district would make an able and
a zealous representative, and we
know of no man who is calculated to
be of greater help. le has a mag
netic presence, is a forceful speaker
and he has had such a business
training, both as a lawyer, and a
legislator that he can enter the halls
of Congress already equipped to take
part in the discussions in that body.
Senator Barnwell is honest to the
core, and if sent to Washington he
will be felt, and his constituents will
be proud of him. The writer has
had an opportunity to watch the
course of Senator Barnwell, and he
has found him ever reaiy to leud a
willing hand to aid iu any measure
which is shown to him, is for the best
interests of the State, and Ie has the
moral courage to take issue and
dispute every inch of ground where a
measure in his judgement would work
injury to the people. Whenever it
came to a matter affecting Charles
ton, that county never had a man in
the Senate who guarded her interests
