THAT ARE CAESAR'S.
It is with much pleasure that we note
the independence of the Abbeville
Press and Banner with regard to the
gubernatorial race this summer. Col.
Frank B. Gary lives in the town of Ab
beville, and it is customary for a paper
to support its county man in a contest
for a State office, but not so with Editor
Wilson, who regards Governor Mc
Sweeney as having merited the honor
of being his own successor, and he
comes out square and flat-footed and
announces his support to McSweeney
against all comers. Hurrah for Abbe
ville's editor. We pull our hat to the man
who has independence enough to refuse
to permit a silly custom to tie his hands
and force him by his silence or support
to do an act of injustice to a man who
he conscientiously believes has merited
the people's endorsement.
Colonel Gary is a good man. He
made a good Speaker of the House of
Representatives, but his candidacy for
Governor at this time, it strikes us. is
unfortunate for him. If he runs and is
defeated his political career is ended.
and, in oar judgment, he will be defeat
ed, for several reasons:
First-Governor McSweeney has giv
en the people a first class administra
tion. He has conducted the high office
entrusted to him with ability and dis
Second-There is a disposition on the
part of the people to endorse a man
who has conducted his office satisfac
tory-this is regarded fair play.
Third-There is not at this time. ex
cept from some politicians, any demand
for Governor McSweeney's retirement.
The politicians who want him retired
are those who have found in Governor
McSweeney a man who regards himself
responsible to the people and not to
politicians, and therefore acts accord
Fourth-A great many people feel
that the Gary family has been hand
somely provided for already. John
Gary Evans has been Governor, John
Gary Watts, Adjutant and Inspector
General; Eugene B. Gary, Associate
Justice on the Supreme bench: Ernest
Gary on the circuit bench: Dr. Evans.
Frank Gary's father-in-law, on the
State Board of Health; George Evans.
a member of the House with higher
aspirations: Barnard B. Evans, in the
government service. All of these gen
tlemen, from the same family. occupy
ing prominent official positions, gives
the people an idea that things are lia
ble to return to the old conditions when
it was utterly useless for a man to offer
for public place unless he belonged to a
certain family or had the endorsement
of a certain set.
We have no quarrel with the Gary.
family, but we do think they should be
satisfied with what they have already
obtained, without reaching out for
more, and, like Colonel Frank B.
Gary's home county paper, we believe
it just and right to give Governor Mc
Sweeney's administration the endorse
ment it has merited, and our hearty
support against all corners.
hOLlER THAN ThOU!
- The Prohibitionists have issued an
address, as a precusor to their political
campaign, in which they thrash over a
lot of old straw, mix religion with poli
tics, call upon the women to take a hand
in the fight, and ask the preachers to
convert their pulpits into a forum of
politics. We may look out from now
on, to hear a certain class of preachers
devoting their time to politics; men
who have not had one word to say from
their pulpits about prohibition since
the last primary, except in a casual
way, will begin to give the subject their
undivided attention, and especially will
this be the case when the candidates
for office are announced. The church
to which the candidate belongs will
have the preacher of that denomination
his most ardent advocate, matters not
what the qualifications are-the candi
.date being of his denomination is suffi
cient. We believe it to be the duty of
ministers to preach temperance, but it
should be done as a moral duty, and not
in response to a political faction's de
mand. Politicians who live in comnmu
nities where the Prohibitionists, and
liquor men have a majority jump right
square on the Prohlbition platform, and
are elected to office. A glance over
the General Assembly is convincing of
this. There are men in that body rep
resenting prohibition counties who.
are not Prohibitionists by practice or
example, and they will say if asked that
"prohibition is impracticable." They
will also admit that they espoused the
cause of prohibition to get elected, and
with no idea of bringing about such
legislation. There are a great many
men in the State who feel it a conscien
tious duty to vote for prohibition, and
will vote for any man representing such
a principle, and these same men will
admit that if the General Assembly was
to give us prohibition, it would amount
to the country being flooded with li
quor without any revenue being paid
to defray the Ceese incur'red from
the sale of liquor. But not all of those
who are taking a leading par't in in
jecting the prohibition question into
our coming primary are prohibitionists
from principal-politics is the ruling
passion with them, were this not true
why would they want to run men for
every office from United States Sena
-in Amwn to Coronae Tf theyrinilly
wanted prohibition they would devote
their attention entirely to the legisla
ture, and leave the State and Congres
sional offices alone, because it is well
known that a Congressman can do
nothing for prohibition, nor can a gov
ernor, it takes the legislature to make
the laws, and no man who could be
elected governor would vetoe a prohi
bition law after it was enacted. Our
friends who are clamoring for prohibi
tion would not be so clamorous if they
were forced to confine themselves to
the legislature, because that office is
without profit-take away the flesh
pots., and their remains uothing for
politicians to struggle.
Those anxious statesman who so
quickly placed themselves on their
country's altar when it was rumored
that Senator McLaurin was going to
resign to accept a place on the Philip
pine Commission are certainly sorry
they spoke. Every one of them ex
posed their greed for office. and placed
themselves on record as chronic office
seekers. They kick the hat with the
rock under it, aud now they are nursing
According to press dispatches this
morning, the British have at last
turned the tide of war in their favor.
The latest show, that General Roberts
with his big battallions and military
skill has compelled the surrender of
General Cronje. The Englishmen were
about 40,000 strong, and the Boers
about 4000. The Dutchman with his
little band held off the Englishman
with his mighty host for days, and yet
We admire William Jennings Bryan
for his sterling manhood. Grosvenor of
Ohio attempted last week to make'some
political capital in Congress by stating
that Bryan came on to Washington and
advised his democratic followers to vote
for the ratification of the Paris treaty.
Bryan was asked if this was true, and
like the manly man that he is replied
yes. A great many people are con
demning Senator McLaurin for voting
for the ratification of the Paris treaty,
and are charging him with Republican
tendency's. What will they say about
the Democracy's idol William Jennings
Bryan, has he Republican tendency's
too? McLaurin is as good a democrat
as is Bryan, and when the American
flag was fired upon, no party issue was
at stake, but we are all Americans, and
the nation comes first.
There are a iew political quacks in
this world who have an idea that to at
tract attention they must express them
selves differently from other qeople re
gardless of the issue. This class will
always be found hiding from view and
taking the other side of and misrepre
senting all questions. A man who is
honest in his expressions speaks his
mind in the open, he lets the people
know that he is talking and is respon
sible for his views and expressions. He
neither shields himself behind the
sanctity of clerical robes, nor does he
speak from abroad. He does not hold
up his hands in holy horror at politics
and claim himself too saintly to discuss
such a worldly and degrading subject,
at the sametime hypocritically using
his religion to further his political ends.
No, the editor who has an honest pride
in his profession, and is not a pliant
tool, will let the public know who he is
criticising adversely, and he will not
secret himself from public view.
The $100,000 appropriation for free
schools failed of passage because the
scheme was not projected in good faith,
Ias will be seen, it was a delusion and a
snare. The opponents of the State col
leges tacked on to the bill the appropri
ation with the proviso that the $100,000
must be collected and applied in the
same manner as the three mill constitu
tional school tax. This would have ne
cessitated an additional levy in every
county whether tbey needed the monev
or not, and not one cent of the $100,000
was to come out of the State treasury.
The whole thing was a trick to increase
taxation in order that the opponents
of the colleges could raise a hue
and cry this summer. That this view
'is cor'-.t is shown in the action of the
opponents of the colleges,in refusing to
permit such counties as did not need
more school money and now have money
lying idle in their county treasuries, to
be exempted, and when they saw their
scheme was discovered they were the
first to ask that the $100,000 appropria
tion be withdrawn.
The material change in the dispen
sary is the taking away of the profit
heretofore going to the State, and giv
ing it to the counties. Then the pur
chases are to be made by sealed bids to
be deposited with the State Treasurer
and to be opened only at a meeting of
the board of directors. By this scheme
the counties, and towns will get more
money from the institution, and in such
counties where the three mill consti
tutional tax is insufficient to supply the
necessary funds to run the free schools,
the Representatives can provide in their
"supply bills" apportioning the coun
ty's portion of the dispensary profit to
the free schools. In this way, those
counties that do not want a dispensary
operated in their midst will also do
without the profits of an institution
they are violently opposed to. Hereto
fore the dispensary profits was distrib
uted among all of the counties, prohi
bition as well as dispensary, which
Imany regarded unfair, they believing
that a county opposed to the sale of li
quor to such an extent that it will not
tolerate a dispensary should not be per
mitted to share in the profits made in
counties where a similar feeling does
Inot exist. That if dispensary money
is "blood money that should be scorned"
those holding such views ought to be
consistant, and not want to share in any
part of it.

of New Straltsville. Ohio. prevented a dreadful
tragedy and saved two lives. A frightful cough
had long kept her awake every night. She had
tried many remedies and do&ors but steadily
grew worse until urged to try Dr. King's New
Discovery. One bottle wholfy cured her. and
she writes this marvelous medicine also cured
Mr. Long of a severe attack of pneumonia.
Such cures are positive proof of the matchless

There seems to be some surprise at
the election of L. J. Williams as chair
man of the board of directors. It was
taken for granted that the Legislature
would have made a clean sweep when
it legislated the old board out of exist
ence. What brought about a change
we do not know, but had the election
come off sooner we are satisfied that not
one of the old board would have stood a
ghost of a chance. But Williams is a
shrewd political manipulator and, hav
ing the advantage of being so fortunate
as to not get mixed up in disgustingnews
paper revelations which made the old
board so odious, he managed by the de
lay in bringing on the vote, to convince
a majority that he should not be pun
ished for the misdeeds of the others.
We did not vote for Williams, but our
opposition was not based on any belief
of guilt, but because we felt that a new
deal was necessary to satisfy the people.
As far as we know there has been noth
ing shown which besmirches the char
acter of Mr. Williams, but there has
been shown that when his faction was
in the majority they rode rough shod
over the minority, and trouble resulted,
and when the other side got into the
saddle they retaliated and there was
trouble again. This thing went o; un
til the people were very tired of the
constant bickerings of the whole board,
and in our judgment the people would
have been much gratified if the whole
board could have been abolished and
the management of the institution local
ized by giving it over to each county.
The General Assembly thought differ
ently, however, and they have given us
the system with some changes. Per
haps the new board can manage the
business more satisfactory: that re
mains to be seen, if they fight and
scratch as did the old board, the people
will elect men to the Legislature who
will put a stop to the quarrels by fol
lowing the precedent set by the recent
To be Prepared
For war is the surest way for this nation to
maintain peace. That is the opinion of the
wisest statesmen. It is equally true that to be
prepared for spring Is the best way to avoid the
peculiar dangers of the season. This is a lesson
multitudes are learning, and at this time. when
the blood is sure to be loaded with impurities
and to be weak and sluggish, the millions begin
to take Hood's Sarsaparilla, which purifies, en
riches and vitalizes the blood, expels all disease
germs. creates a good appetite, gives strength
and energy and puts the whole system in a
healthy condition, preventing pneumonia, fevers
and other dangerous diseases which are liable to
attack a weakened system. am
A number of newspapers continue
harping about the legislature failing to
adopt the biennial sessions resolutions,
and they are endeavoring to create the
impression that our lawmakers voted
against the project, for selfish reasons.
The Senator from Ciarendon voted for
biennial sessions,;because he promised
the people on the stump that he would
do so,but there are two sides to every
question, and before the critics go too
far they should weigh the reasons given
by those voting against the measure.
The State of Georgia now has biennial
sessions with a fifty day limit, and what
is the result, in that State the legisla
ture holds its regular session every two
years, and an adjourned session, which
is unlimited, every year, making the
cost to the taxpayers even greater than
were they to have limited sessions every
year. In North Carolina the biennial
session does not work satisfactory, so
say men who from that State have
legislative experience. Then our con
stitution has arranged the fiscal affairs
of the State, which under the resolu
tion before the Assembly, had it been
adopted, would have disarrange the
whole goverment without providing the
necessary method to run the affairs of
the State. This was made so clear that
it was exceedingly fortunate the meas
ure failed of passage, and next year in
the early part of the session a new res
olution will be introduced which will
remedy the defects. We would like
very much for the question of biennial
sessions to be discussed in the coming
campaign in order that the people may
get an intelligent idea of the proposi
tion. It is very catching to say that
that the legislature shall meet every
other year, that it would be saving
money to the taxpayers &-c., but it
should be demonstrated by argument
convincing,and not merely by assertion.
If we are to have regular sessions every
other year, and adjourned sessions
every year, then the object of the peo
ple would be defeated, and we had bet
ter let well enough alone.
