The election throughout the
United States yesterday proved
conclusively that the Republican
party is entrenched, and that the
voters endorse President McKin
lv's course. Bryan made gains
in New York and other States,
but those gains were not suffi
cient to do him any good. The
business element throughout the
Union, regardless of party affili
ations have, by their votes,made
it clear that they favor expan
sion, and that they want the na
tional administration to continue
on in the work already begun.
McKinley defeats Bryan by a
larger majority than he did four
years ago, and we believe he
would have defeated any other
Democrat. Bryan made a gal
lant fight for the Democracy and
although defeated his name will
go down in history as a states
man who held principle above
the dollar, and the Constitution
as a sacred heirloom.
It was not the money question,
nor was it any lack of confidence
in Bryan that brought disaster
to the Democratic party. In our
opinion the overwhelming victo
ry of Republican party can be at
tributed to the ei. of prosperity
which we have had the past
three years, and the reluctance
of the people making a change
under such circumstances.
From the reports already in,
McKinley has 266 electoral votes
and Bryan 142. and ten States
more to hear from, but if Bryan
was to get the electoral votes in
the remaining States, which he
will not get, it will do him no
We predict that in our next
State election, the expansion
question will be an issue in South
Carolhna, and the business ele
ment in the State will record
their votes for the candidates
representing that issue. There
are many Democrats in South
Carolina today, convinced that
the reaching out of our govern
ment is for the best interests of
the country and many believe
that the opening up-and develop
ing of China and the Philippines
will be advantageous to the
If however, there should come
a financial depression during
President McKinley's second
term, the Democrat's may stand
some chance of coming into con
trol four years from now, but if
the country remains prosperous,
there will be a general breaking
up of the Democratic party and
new alignments will be formed.
THE STATE FAIR.
The State fair was the great
est success ever known since the
organization of the South Caro
lina Agricultural Assotiation.
The crowds were immense, the
exhibits plentiful and grand, the
racing was good and the order
was fine. We heard of no pick
pocketing so usual where such
large crowds congregate, and
everybody that went came away
with praises for the fair and its
One of the greatest attractions
was Charleston mingling with
the up-country, and we honestly
believe that this co-mingling has
done much towards wiping out
the old sectional lines, and that
the up-country and low country
will work as a unit to make the
Interstate Exposition to be held
in Charleston next year a suc
cess. The electric booth exhib
ited by the Exposition commit
tee was one of the most beauti
ful pieces of mechanical art we
have ever seen and at all hours
of the day and night great
crowds were attracted to it.
The promoters of the Exposi
tion did a wise thing in going to
Columbia, and the effect of the
vIsit of the Charlestonians will
be of great advantage to the
it would take up too much
space to elaborate and do the
fair justice, but it is due the man
agement to say that never be
fore in the history of the State
have we ever read or seen where
came away so unanimous in their
praises. The arrangements were
perfect and every attention pos
sible was shown to visitors. It
was certainly a week of profit

What Would You Give
To be cured of catarrh? If you or your
friends have this disease, you know
how disagreeable it is. Its symtoms
are inflamed eyes, throbbing temples,
ringing noises in the ears, headaches,
capricious appetite, and constant dis
charge of mucus. Fortunately its cure
is not a question of what you will give,
but what you will take. If you will
take Hood's Sarsaparilla, the great
constitutional remedy, which thorough
ly purifies, enriches and vitalizes the
blood, you may expect to be completely
and permanently cured. The good
blood which Hood's Sarsaparilla makes,
reaching the delicate passages of the
mucous membrane. soothes and re builds
the tissues and ultimately cures all
synptons of catarrh.
If silence is golden, that may account
for the scarcity of female millionaires.
