CONVENTIONS DO NOT ALWAYS REFLECT
Political activity will set in all over
the State of South Carolina on and after
next Saturday. The Democratic clubs
will on that day choose their represent
atives for the county conventions,
which in turn will choose representa
tives for the State convention. A po
litical ailm now pervades the State. as
there are no issues which are of an ex
citing nature. Politicians gain very
little comfort or encouragement from
the result of- conventions for the reason
that the people themselves by their
individual ballots in the primaries con
trol the results.
The conventions now-a-days are al
most useless contrivances and only
serve to keep up party organization.
-When nominations were made by the
convention plan, every aspirant for pub
lic office strove hard to secure the or
ganization that he might come away
with the prize, but now that every voter
has the privilege of making his own
choice, the candidates for public favor
must deal directly with him and not
with men who pose as leaders. It is
often the case that men who are not
conspicuous in the conventions,are very
successful at the ballot-box, and many
of those who carry everything their
own way in conventions, make a poor
showing for themselves in the prima
ries. When our county conventions
meet next month, it will be an excep
tion to the rule if there is not a skir
mish for advantage. Just what the ad
vantage is in getting control of a con
vention, and securing the management
of the party's machinery we are at a
loss to understand, because. when the
primary is ordered, each club selects its
own managers and the friends of every
candidate have a right to witness the
casting of the ballots and the count,
thus making it almost impossible for
any cheating if there is any disposition
to do so.
The primary elections in this county
have been conducted, especially so in
the past few years with the utmost fair
ness; even when factional feeling ran
riot, the disposition was to give each
side a fair showing to the extent that
both factious were represented at the
various clubs. Now that there is no
factional feeling, and all bitterness has
been removed, we see no reason why
there should be the slightest feeling of
If any issues should arise, those ad
vocating their various i-leas can go be
fore the voters and diserass the issues in
a calm and dispassionate manner with
out giving offense or being offended.
Every man has a right to his ideas and
if he can convince a majority to his
way of thinking he is entitled, and will
receive the vote he merits.
What are likely to be the issues in
the coming primary? We must con
fess that up to now there has been no
definte announcment made. The pro
hibition element of the Democratic
party have held a few preliminary
meetings, and an address has been is
sued which, while not indicating just
what part they propose to play on the
political chess-board they have said
enough to lead us to believe that they
have plans by which they will make a
strong effort to uproot the dispensary
system. Whether they will put for
ward a full State ticket remains to be
seen, but we do not think we are gues
*sing wildly when we say, they will
have a legislative ticket in every coun
tv. Whether the result of such a plan
will be successful remains entirely in
the hands of the people. We know
that personal popularity often carries
votes for an issue, because out of re
-gard for the man the voter loses sight
of the issue and casts his vote contrary
to his convictions.
*We know there are now members of
alseml who were elect
ed by a people, the i~~v of .whom
are opposed to them on the N o
of liquor control, but voted for them
outside of that issue altogether. Had
the question been made an issue in their
counties, as we believe it will be in the
coming election, these men being op
posed to the majority, would not be oc
cupying their present positions. Per
sonal popularity very properly counts
for much when there are no special is
sues, but when special issues are in
volved, they become a principle, and
we sometimes, although reluctantly, in
order to vote for the principle, have to
vote against a man for whom we have
a high regard. To do otherwise would
be giving up our own convictions to
gratify an individual who would not do
the same for us.
Since the above was written we learn
that a State prohibition conference w~ill
be called to meet in Columbia on the
23rd day of May for the purpose of
considering the propriety of suggest
ing candidates for governor and lieut
enant governor, and that county calls
will be made for meetings on May I2th
to send delegates to the State confer
ence, and at these county meetings a
Prohibition county chairman is to be
chosen for' the campaign.
It will thus be seen that as the Pro
hibitionists are prepaing to eriect a
.separate and distinct organization, it is
well for those favoring the Dispensary
system. to meitet the issue fairly and
squarely in our coigcuty Demo

It has been intimated to us, that we
should not be so strong in our views on
the question of liquor control, that
many who believe in prohibition are
our friends. When we write an edi
torial we do so without the slightest in
tention of giving offense to any indi
vidual, and we accord to our prohibi
tion friends the same privilege that we
take. THE TIMES believes the dispen
sary system is nearer to a practical tem
perance reform than would be a prohi
bitory law on our statute books, but at
the same time we know of no law
which gives us the right to make other
people think as we do. As a news

our columns to those who desire to

We regard this honest and fair. Any
man favoring prohibition desiring to

gard a newspaper to be worthy of the

Lipa, Province Batangas. Luzon. P.
I.. March 7, 1900.--Have only received
onie copy of THE TIMEs since reaching
the Philippines, have you stricken my
name off your list of subscribers? You
have no idea how one appreciates a let
ter or paper so far away from home.
During the past month my company
has has two small fights, other compa
nies belonging to the 38th, have had
some pretty warm engagements. We.
are kept on the go all the time, _nearly
every day one or more companies are
sent out to make a reconnaissance in the
vicinity of Lipa, the principal object is
to keep the enemy scattered. These
hikes are very seldom less than 20 miles
a day: about 10 da ao we were out
for three days, weleft here at four a. m.
and marched 21 miles by 10 a. in., the
next day after marching eight or ten
miles came to the Malihit River, the
bridges were destroyed there was no
other way except to swim it so the or
der was given for all those that could
swim to get at it, in about a half hour
we were all across. Several with their
guns and clothes above their heads
stepped in holes. and of course wore
wet clothes all that day, among them
was the Major. The day after we re
turned marching in all 60 miles, as the
result 32 men from Co. "E" are now in
the hospital with fever and sore feet.
The officers cant imagine what it was
that made the men sick, seems like any
man with common sense ought to know
that a force march in this hot climate
'like the one I have just described is
enough to kill any ordinary man. I
find small men can hike a large fellow
down in a short while.
Every town of importance in this
Province is held by American troops,
the fighting is not over yet by any
means, can get a scrap any day by go
ingr to the mountains east of Lipa, and
I am told this is the case with the other
two batallions stationed at San Jose and
v opinion (although it doesn't
amo n .wOfpins) is that the in
surgents will continnie to fight as long
as the Democrats hold out to tliem the
hope of Independence. They bellee
that if Bryan is elected the American
troops will be withdrawn from the
Islands and their Independence as
sured. Now, that is their only chance,
and this is why Aguinaldo has adopted
his guerrilla tactics simply to prolong
the war until the election in the States
for President is over. I firmly believe
that when the rainy season sets in and
just before the election the fighting will
be fierce, their leaders know it is use
less to try to whip the Americans, so
in this our next election rest their hope,
their all. If the Republicans win the
war will end in a short time. Will the
American people be able to vote in
teligently on this question. If so,
which party is going to win .

opposed to expansion would oniy adopt

and then send every negro from the

put them in charge of affairs. There
is plenty of room over here. and just
the country for the colored man. These
natives are nothing more than ut-groes
and are just as ilt to run this govern
ment as the nigger is to run our gov
ermnent at home, so I am in favor of
giving our negro a chance of self gov
ernment. and there is no better Lplace
on earth to experiment than right here.
The two races can sympathize with
each other. both having been slaves.
The papers over here only describe
some important engagement, we learn
more about what is going on from home
papers but things are exagerated so.
It is all bosh about the Insurgents kil
ling more than is stated in official re
ports and that the government doesn't
give facts and suppress the real state of
affairs. I am surprised at intelligent
men speaking as they do: all the lying
is in.the papers from the States.
I believe it to be a just war, a bles

men that have employment on account

On a reconnaissance yesterday Corpl.
Karriho of my company came near
being killed by aCariboo (better known
as a water Buffalo.) This is the first
time my company ran from the enemy.
Just as we reached the top of a high
hill the Oariboo saw us, the crowd
frightened him he soon broke loose
from where he was tied and made a
charge on the point, not having time
to load, one of the men struck him on
the head with his ritie, he then came
for the main body, every man broke
ranks and ran. Corpl. Kirraho loaded
his rifle, but just as he closed the cham
ber the animal struck him. he was
thrown about 15ft.. the Cariboo jumped
on him and proceeded to finish his
work. . About that tiene every man in
the company had his rifle loaded and
was trying to get a shot,. no one could
shoot for the man, was tossed up and
down, the poor fellow commenced to
hollow, "boys help me, help me." One
man rushed up placed his rifle, to its
side and fired three time, the third shot
turned him around, with his tail in the
air and the blood pouring from nostrils:
he made another charge: such running
I never saw. After getting in the
crowd again no one could shoot so we
gave him the road. About that time
Captain Sawyer appeared on the scene,
thinking we had ran into the enemy.
and seeing his men running in every
direction: he was raging, told a man to

charged the line in the night, some one
yelled out "we are surrounded." they
took the bolts out of their riiles and
threw them away, imagine how they
felt after finding out what it was, eight
or ten were gored by this one charge.
It would be a good idea for the niggers
to start a few down the road when they
see us coming, the boys are more afraid
of the Cariboo than the nigger.

SEVEN RUNNING SORES CURED
THE GREAT SFRING MVIEDICINE.
JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA as a Blood Food and Nerve Energizer, is the
greatest SPRING MEDICINE ever discovered. It comes as a rich blessing from
heaven to the " worn out," the run down, the overworked and debilitated. That " tired
feeling," those "sinking spells," the languor and despondency which arise from badly nour
ished nerves, from thin, vitiated blood and an underfed body, vanish as if by a magic
spell. The weariness, lassitude and nervous prostration which accompany the spring
time and the heat of summer, are conquered and banished at once. For every form of
neurasthenia, and all ailments of the brain and nerve, insomnia, hysteria and nervousness
generally, it is almost a specific. It furnishes the very elements to rebuild worn-out nerve
tissues. It feeds brain, nerve centers and nerves, calming and equalizing their action; it
makes rich, red, honest blood. Newness of life, new hope. new strength follow its faith
ful use. It makes the weak strong, and the old young again.
It was the antiquated (but now happily exploded) method In the good old times, to
treat Salt Rheum, Scrofula, Cancer and other troublesome disorders arising from
BLOOD TAINT with powerful alteratives, such as mercury, arsenic and other mineral
agents. It was expected by this treatment that the poison could be killed while the blood
was left to course through its channels holding in its circulation the speciftc germs of the
disease. Bi: 'n this way, every part of the body became more or less diseased. Noth
ing can be more terrible than a horribly destructive blood taint. It not only attacks viru
lently the differnt structures of the body, but many times the bones are honey-combed
and destroyed. It often seeks out the nerves and spinal cord, and again it will bring de
cay and death to some vital organ, as the kidneys, liver or stomach. There is only one
scientific method for the cure of blood taint. That is, PURIFICATION! Every particle
of the blood must be removed through the execretory channels, the lungs, kidneys, boweis,
liver and skin. "First pure, then peaceable." The great restorative, reconstructive and
vitalizer of the blood, JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA, not only radically and ex
haustively removes the taint, but also removes all mercury. calomel and other minerals,
and fills the veins and arteries with the ruby. glowing current of vitality. "'The blaced ?3
the life." Good health means pure blood. The old and reliable remedy. JOHNSTON'S
SARSAPARILLA, is universally regarded as the greatest Blood Purifier ever discov
ered. This fact is now established beyond question or cavil.
