DECEPTION IS COWARDLY.
As a specimen of the unfair
treatment Senator McLaurin is
receiving at the hands of the op
position press, we herewith re
produce from the News and Cou
rier a clipping which that paper
has credited to the Laurens
The people of this State are waiting
to see what attitude the new President
will hold towards the Commercial
Democrats. This was McKinley's last
term and he could well offord to ap
point Democrats to office. But with
Roosevelt it is different. His career is
before him, as it were, and he natural
lv wishes to be the next Republican
nominee. He naturally wants to make
friends with all Republicans, and there
by get their support for renomination.
If he appoints Democrats to the Feder
al offices could he expect the old line
Republicans to support him in the
National Republican Convention?
Senator McLaurin's followers may
find themselves in a predicament if
Roosevelt follows McKinley's policy in
regard to appointments. They may
have to send delegates to the next Re
Our object in reproducing this
clipping is to show that what we
said about the News and Couri
er giving prominence to all the
little flings and - misrepresenta
tions against McLaurin is so.
The News and Courier, however,
has had the conscience to per
- mit the friends of McLaurin to
defen4 him in its columns which
is a spirit of fairness that the
Columbia State does not posess:
Therefore when we see a news
paper with the conscience even
as the News and Courier, clip
ping little petty and deceptive
scraps like the foregoing clip
ping from the Laurens News,
we think it is unworthy of such
a great daily. Now if the News
-and Courier wants to do the
proper thing. and it is not shackl -
ed by its new idol, if it will pub-I
lish the things that are said
against McLaurin, it ought also
for the sake of many of its sub-1
scribers who are McLaurin's
friends reproduce at least some
of the editorials that are pub
-lished in his favor. A news
paper ought to be fair and it
cannot be if it is too one-sided;
The editorial columns of a paper
is where the people look for the
editor's stand in a public dis
cussion, and we would not com
plain, if the News and Courier
was to write anti-McLaurin
editorials every day if it would
either stop reproducing every
dirty fling that is made at him,
or if it will run a column giving
the editorial expressions made on
We lay special stress on the
conduct of the News and Couri
er, because we are very fond of
it's editor in chief and we feel
that his present mode of fight
ing McLaurin is unnatural, it is
not in-accord with his high sense
of honor. The fact of not throw
ing into the waste basket comun
nications addressed to that paper
-by friends of McLaurin when
they, feel that their friend has
been foully slandered or mis
represented, is a strong hope
that the News and Courier's
heart isinot real bad.
The Laurens County News, if
we remember right is edited by
a man who at one time edited a
paper in Horry county, and at
that time his paper was an ar
dent supporter of Sampson Pope,
who was a Republican endorsed
candidate for governor. The
Horry paper and the Columbia
State supported Pope, and now
both of these editors are very
solicitous for the welfare of the
Democratic party. Bah! Fool
who'. Not the free white people
of Southt Carolina. Ben Tillman
got up a system of political edu
cation, which resulted in educat
ing the masses, and whenever
politicians or newspaper editors,
who mn the days of excitement
resorted to all the means that
passion and disappointment could
conceive of-those who gave aid
to Samp's Pope and G. W. Mur
ray mn their efforts to tear up
-the franchise clause in our Con
stitution, so that our registration
]aws would be destroyed, under
take to act as our political moni
tors, the people regard it as the
interference of impertinent ene
mies. The idea of a supporter
of Samp's Pope questioning Sen
ator McLaurin's Democracy, but
for the edification of the Laurens
County News, News and Courier,
Columbia State and all others
-who are now fighting McLaurin
and professing friendship for
Tillman, we will say as one of
McLaurin's followers that wheth
er Roosevelt follows McKinley's
wise policy or not, the followers
of McLahrmn will be found true
and loyal Denmocrats. They will~
follow McLaurin clean through
the Democratic primaries, anjd
rejoice at his election, but should
he be defeated in the primaries,
they will not turn State's evi
dence and run into the federal
courts to have the decision of the
white people set aside, but they
will take their medicine like men
and stand by the choice of the
majority. McLaurinites are so
built, we have not been inoculat
ed with the deceptive virus of
the Laurens County News,
The State and others and we are
real sorry to see slight evi
dences of the taint now get
ting into the News and Courier.
Senator Tillman has a great deal
of magnetism, there is no doubt
of it, but we never believed that
it had reached the stage of hy
pnotism, and if he has not got
the News and Courier hypnotised
then possibly the Anti-ship peo
ple have it subsidized. Who
EXPOSITION A SUCCESS.
The people of South Carolina
will always be proud of the ap
propriation made by the South
Carolina General Assembly to
the Charleston exposition. It
was a subsidy it is true, but it
was an appropriation made with
that business foresight which
far seeing business men make
when they are expecting prac
tical benefits. It is indeed worth
a trip to the city to visit the ex
position grounds, the- buildings
are nearing completion and the
sunken gardens, flower beds,
and beautifull - hedges make a
pretty sight. The buildings are
as pretty in design as the build
ings of any exposition ever held
in this country, and in our opin
ion they excel in beauty the
buildings of Atlanta or Nash
There is no fear now that the
gates will not be opened on time;
it is probable, like all tremen
dous undertakings, every thing
will got be completed by the open
ing day, but the show is to last
six months, and there will be
the greatest plenty for the sight
seer. The success of the expo
sition is already assured, the
people of the city are taking up
the bond issues with commenda
ble confidence in the enterprise,
and when the gates are thrown
open, the city will take care of
We earnestly hope that the
counties in this State will have
the spaces allotted to them, fill
ed up with exhibits of the natur
al resources of their counties.
We expect great results from
this exposition; we I )ok for
greater benefits to the country
districts than to Charleston. The
temporary benefit will certainly
be Charleston's, but the greater
permanent benefits will come to
the interior. It will come in the
developement of our forests and
swamps, our mines and our
milling interests; there will be
industrial enterprises all over
the State that were . never
thought of before, and the com
munities in which they are es
tablished will point with pride
to the 'source that brought them.
There will be an impetus to the
noble avocation of farming, new
ideas, with new implements will
be introduced, visitors f rom
abroad will see what kind of a
climate .and soil we have and
they will gradually drift down
here and put their modern mach
inery and ideas to work.
The exposition will be of great
value from as educational
standpoint, and every taxpayer
in South Carolina who will go
out on the exposition grounds
and take in the granduer and
extent of that institution, would
come back an enthusiastic work
er for it's success.

Editor The Manning Times:
Mr.. Hugh McCollum of Alcolu spent
last Sunday over here with his parents.
Mr. Steve Proctor the artist of Beau
lah was in this section a few days ago.
I am delighted to see the advertising
patronage the Manning merchants are
giving the people's county paper, and
from those advertisements Manning is
no doubt a fine purchasing market. A
few days ago, I was visiting at a neigh
bors, where several members of the
family had congregated for the purpose
of deciding where to go to trade, sever
al towns were mentioned and Manning
was voted as the place to go; this I
know was on account of the way Nan
ning is advertising in the TIES.
About a month ago a bear or some
other kind of a destructive animal was
going about these parts, some called it
a tiger and others a panther cat. It
did not do any further harm than scare
people. It did some damage in some
of the fields and was shot and slightly
wounded several times, at last some
few of us decided that we would stop
its wild career. We organized a doz
en, the bravest of the fellows took a
stand near a field where the anifhial had
been feeding at night, and after watch
ing without seeing anything of the
bear, they retired. An old hunter on
hearing of the excitement called his
dogs and set them on trail without suc
cess. The hunter suspecting some
thing wrong, inspected the tracks and
found them to have been made by a
goat. Imagine the hunter's disgust.
There is a stream of grape juice
flowing through this community, and
if Constable Alsbrook will come over
here, he might save some from getting
I am glad to see John Slab writing
again, we enjoy his ruminations. They
are no dreams and his letters are bound
to bring good results.
I congratulate the TIES editor for
his kindly interest in the farmers; his
efforts to build up Manning's market is
being endorsed every where that I can
hear from. I was glad to see what you
said about growling at the editor. Let
them growl, it often takes bitter medi
cine to cure a bad disease, and the
TIMES' admonitions will redound to the
welfare of everybody. There are some
of course, who will regard what the
TIMES is doing, as interference, but so
did the fellow regard Captain Edgar
Plowden when he caught him with a
before been stolen from the Captain's
bank; had not CaptaiL interfered, the
fellow would have had the potatoes
safely, so it is with merchants who want
it all, and if you will wa:ch ahat class

ness long. I will bet o Mexican dollar
