WILLIAM .7ENNINGS BRYAN.
ADLAI E. STEVENSON,
CLARENDON AND KERSHAW JOINED.
It was our pleasure on last
Thursday to accept an invita
tion to go over the new
portion of the North West
ern railroad just completed by
Captain Thomas Wilson, be
tween Sumter and Camden. We
went up to Sumter on the regu
lar train and immediately a party
composed of Governor McSween
ey, Commissioner W. D. Evans,
Dr. Henry J. McLaurin, R. O.
Purdy Esq., Col. J. F. Laughery,
Editor H. G. Osteen, Captain
Thomas Wilson and Louis Ap
pelt, left Sumter in a private car
for Camden: at Rembert we were
joined by that genial gentleman
Mr. Ed. E. Rembert. Arriving
at Camden? instead of finding an
old quaint villiage as we expect
ed, we found an-to-date progres
sive town, with all the appear
ances of a great future. The
people greeted us with that cor
dialty characteristic of Caroli
nians, and for which the people
of Camden have become so fam
ous, that northern tourists have
become attracted thereby, and
every winter there are crowds of
wealthy pleasure srekers drawn
hither tco hold social communion
with the Camdenites. Captain
Wil son's road, seventy one miles
long fi-om Wilson's on the cen
tra), of S. C., to Camden, bids
fair to become one of the most
important roads iir the State. It
traverses a magnif cient country,
from Sumter to Camden, the
lands are peculiarly adapted to
the growing of fruits, grapes and
vegetables, with a climate un
surpassed for certainty. We are
told that such a thing as a failure
in the fruit crop in that section
is unknow n, and the peaches
grown there, are even more
highly' flavored than the cele
brated "Delaware's," and the
grapes equal those which come
from the vintages of California.
We expect to see as a result of
Captain Wilson's enterprise, a
new section of South Carolina
The road is nearly as air line.
the few curves upon it show high
engineering skill, and the sched
ule arranged gives both Sumter
and Camden fine facilities for
Camden has a population of
about 5000, with several facto
ries, four railroads, and some of
the haidsomest stores in the
State, a drive around the "city"
convinced us that the progres
sive spirit has come to stay, and
"old fogyism" has been driven
We remained in Camden about
three hours and enjoyed our
stay, we' met several acquaint
ances, and made new ones: it is
said you must go away from
home to get the news. and we
found this to be so; in a conver
sation with a gentleman, he in
formed us that Clarendon is
about to lose the citzenship of
Captain A. M. Brailsford who is
about to move to Camden, and
that Mrs. Williams who was Miss
Ellen Manning had the misfor
tune to fall and fracture one of
On our return trip, dinner was
served on thecar, and the entire
party went into ecstacv's over
Jerry's roast beef. Dr. McLau
ri, who has traveled much, and
of course, eaten much declared
a number of times that it was the
most delicious beef he had ever
eaten. The trip bac-k was turn
ed over to Dr. McLauren to in
spect the road, as Commissioner
Evans did that part of the wor-k
going, and when Sumter was
reached both inspectors decided,
the road to be in fine condition,
and should be received, but the
rest of the party dissented from
this view, regarding it a hasty
conclusion. and wanted the trip
to be made over again.
T will be remembeed tha
when Captain Wilson was pros
pecting for this road, his propo
sitions were regarded by some
people in Sumter as a bluff; they
did not know the man, for when
he attempts to do a thing, it is
done, and success always crowns
his efforts. For many years a
road was being built on paper,
and when Wilson camte upon the
ground, opposition sprung up
he reminded those people that a
road on paper and one on cross
ties were two different kinds of
roads, and the Wilson road was
to be one of the cross-tie kind,
they have it now. and we wish
for it abundant prosperity.
PREACHERS AND POLITICS.
The Abbeville Medium having re
marked that "Senator Appelt. editor
of THE MANNING TIMES. has given
some good advice to political preach
ers" and that it is "not probable that
his advice will be taken" by them, the
Chester Lantern comments that "it
certainly will not be taken by a preach
er who has any regard for his duty.
Senator Appelt is not the kind of Chris
tiau they look to for advice." We don't
know what kind of Christian Senator
Appelt is, but he is probably as good a
Christian as Senator Tillman. whose
advice on the liquor question a number
of preachers seem to have taken.-Co
Senator Appelt has never made
any professions of Christianity,
but he is willing that his piety
be measured with that of Signor
Gonzales, editor of The State,
and he is also willing to take his
chances with that class of pro
fessing Christians who preach
"Love thy neighbor," and then
advise a spirit of revenge when
"thy brother" has given them
offense or thwarted +hem in their
Senator Appelt has a sacred
regard for ministers of whatever
creed, but his regard for political
preachers is the same as for any
other class of politicians. They
are estimated according to the
number of votes they can pull.
Brother Gonzales may be able
to sing "Onward, Christian Sol
diers," but when it comes to
judging of another's Christian
ity, Signor Gonzales "is not the
kind of a Christian to look to for
advice," and we doubt very much
if the editor of The Chester Lan
tern really knows the meaning
Bryan's reception in New York
was the largest political demon
stration ever seen in that city,
and it sent a cold chill down the
backs of the Republican leaders.
Hanna got so wild - ,h anger
that he permitted his temper to
break lose at Lincoln, Bryan's
home, and Teddy Roosevelt took
flight to Washington to consult
with McKinley. There is no
doubt about it, Bryan has got
Cotton keeps a tumbling, and
we believe the market will re
main unsettled until after the
election, and then there is no
tlling which way the specula
tors ill swing the pendulum.
As long as the impression re
mains that cotton is being held
by the producers, just so long
will the price stay down, but as
suon as the speculators become
convinced that the product is out
of the hands of the farmers, then
will the tug of war begin among
the speculators, and whichever
side is strongest, that side will
control the price.
Hon. John Shernian of Ohio,
died last Monday morning in the
city of Washington. Mr. Sher
man, was one of the most con
spicuous figures in National leg
islation since the days of Calhoun
Webster and Clay. His public
career has been long and ardu
ous. He represented his dis
trict in the lower house, and for
many years his State in the
Senate, it was here where his
ability made itself felt. He was
the author of the much discussed
"Sherman bill" which demonet
ized silver and put .the "money
of the fathers" below the gold
parity. Sherman was Secretary
of State under Harrison. He
was regarded in this and foreign
countries as one of the ablest
figures in financial legislation of
Captain Claude Sawyer, in ser
vice in the Philippines, writes a
letter to Senator McLaurin in
which he endorses President Mc
Kinley's policy and criticises the
Democrats for giving encourage
ment to the Filipinos to con
tinue their warfare. Sawyer is
a South Carolinian and when the
Spanish-American war broke out
he resigned his position as solic
itor and went into the army. He
has always been prominent in
his section of the State and re
garded a very earnest and sin
cere man. Since writing the let
ter which has been published
throughout the Union and used
as a campaign document by Can
didate Roosevelt, the Columbia
IState has been quite severe in
its criticisms of Captain Sawyer,
tions against Senator McLaurin.
Sawyer is in the Philippines and
writes from personal knowledge;
Gonzales is in Columbia and
writes from personal prejudice.
That's the difference.
For several years past it has
been the practice for the voters
to regard the primary the elec
tion, and when the- general elec
tion came on the vote was light.
This was very well so long as the
North was satisfied with having
'things her own way in Congress,
but now that her influence is
gradually diminishing she wants
to cling to her control by reduc
ing the representation in the
South. Among the reasons given
for the cutting down of our rep
resentation is the small vote cast
in the elections. Our readers
will see the necessity for turning
out on the 6th, day of November
and casting a full vote. South
Carolina voted in the primary
about 93,000 votes, and this was
confined to the white voters,
with the colored vote we should
poll a great many more.
Every man should turn out
and vote, nut because there is
any danger to the nominees, but
it is necessary to keep our rep
resentation in Congress.
The New York Herald predicts
a landslide for McKinley, giving
him 282 votes and Bryan 165.
The Herald in politics is Inde
pendent, with Republican lean
ings. In other words The Her
ald is usually with Wail street's
magnates. It claims that Mc
Kinley will carry every State he
carried four years ago, except
Kentucky, and make a gain of
eleven votes in the electoral col
The Herald may know whereof
it speaks, and it has a fine ser
vice for getting information, but
we do not see how it can place
much confidence in its own fig
ures, if it reads the Columbia
State, whose editor knows more
than The Herald's information
giving-service can find out; how
ever, we are inclined to believe
The Herald is doing a little blow
ing to please its patron saints on
Wall street. Bryan has got the
Republicans on the run; he is
" jabbing dem in de slats" on
every turn and if he does not
win he will keep Mark and Ted
dy guessing until after the elec
tion returns come in.
An old hayseed once was
charged with horse stealing and
the jury convicted him of big
amy. When he called his law
yer's attention to the mistake,
the lawyer, knowing that his
client would get a lighter sen
tence, told him to be quiet,
"there's no accounting for the
verdict of a jury."
The Republicans are depend
ing on being in possession of the
election machinery and the
money bags, but if they do not
mind, the jury, who are the peo
ple, may give them a verdict
that will surprise them.

It Happened in a Drug Store.
One day last winter a lady came to my drug
store and asked for a brand of cough medicine
that I did not- have in stock." says Mr. C. R.
Grandin. the popular druggist of Ontario. N. Y.
--She was disappointed and wanted to know
what cough preparation I could recommend. I
said to her that I could freely recommend
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and that she
could take a bottle of the remedy and after giv
ing it a fair trial if she did not find it worth the
money to bring back the bottle and I would re
fund the price paid. In the course of a day or
two the lady came back in company with a
friend in need of a cough medicine and advised
her to buy a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. I consider that a very good recom
mendation for the remedy." It is for sale by
