The LEVI BROTHERS of Sumter, in ord6r to meet the demands of
our growinx and expanding business, were forced to seek more commodious
quarters. Accordingly we contracted for and leased the old J. T. Solomon
store next to the court honse, and after an expenditure of considerable
money we have now one of the handsomest and best equipped stores in the
city, to which we extend a most cordial invitation to the readers of THE
TIMES, and in this connection we desire to express our gratitude to the
people for the patronage and the manifestations of confidence reposed in us.
The Sumter cotton market is one of the best in the State and we
reckon ourselves among the heaviest buyers; this we could not do if we did.
not pay full market price, and having the very best facilities for handling
cotton we can guarantee prices to those favoring us with their patronage.

The Tillmanite organs, from
the News and Courier, the latest
convert, down to the tiniest of
the toadies have been fussing
themselves into a fidgit trying to
determine whether the death of
President McKinley would result
in shearing Senator McLaurin of
his influence with the adminis
tration at Washington. The gen
eral line of argument taken by
these newspapers has, of course,
been inspired by their petty par
tizan spite against McLaurin,
rather than by any thought for
the welfare of their State. The
conclusion unanimously reached
with much glee has been that the
Junior Senator would not longer
sufficiently enjoy the confidence
of the administration to secure
the appointment of reputable
South Carolinians to federal posi
tions in this State. Tillman's in
fluence in Washington being mi
nus nit the greatest achievement
of his henchmen according to
their pusilanimous attitude would
be the destruction of the Mc
Laurin influence in the same
quarter. Far better say these
subservient supporters of Till
man's reign that every federal
office in South Carolina should be
filled with negroes and carpet
baggers than that the McLaurin
influence should be credited with
securing office for a respectable
native South Carolinian. To
these much agitated agents of
the agitator we would suggest
that they go way back and sit
down. They will find, out in a
few days that the assassins bul
let has not helped Tillman by
depriving McLaurin of any of
his influence. The Junior Sen
ator was in this city yesterday
on his way to attend the Fair
view Stock Show, today. He had
but just come from a very satis
factory visit to President Roose
velt, and was as smiling as a
basket of chips. In the death of
President McKinley he has -lost
a highly honored friend, but he
has not lost as the Tillmanites
have been hoping, any of his
power to help the white people
of his State. The following ex
tract from a Washington dis
patch of R. M. Larner published
in The News and Courier yester
day will give but cold comfort to

It Happened in a Drug Store.
One day last winter a lady came to my drug
stre and asked for a brand of cough medicine
that I did not have in stock," says Mr. C. R.
Grandir, the popular druggist of Ontario. N. Y.
--She was dissappointed and wanted to kncw
what cough preparation I could recommend. I
said to her that I cauld freely recommend
Chamberlairs Coug Remedy and that she
could take . bottle of the remedy and after
iving it a fair trial if she did not find it worth
the mone, to bring back the bottle and I would
refund the price paid. In the course of a day
or two the lady came back in company with a
friend ir need of a cough medicine and advised
Iher to buy a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough

a certain extent with the theor
ies of Senator McLaurin of
South Carolina, in dealing with
Southern policies.. Senator Mc
Laurin was among the callers at
the White Houge today and it is
known that he had a private
conversation with the President
on that subject."
"When Senator McLaurin ar
rived at the White House the
President was engaged with
many congressional and other
official callers in the large office
adjoining the Cabinet room.
The junior Senator from South
Carolina waited until after all
the casual callers were disposed.
of after which he was invited in
to the Cabinet room, where,
alone with President Roosevelt,
the subject of "McLaurinism" in
the South is said to have been
discussed. At the conclusion of
the interview Senator McLaurin
declined to make any statement
concerning the conversation he
had with the President, further
than to say that his talk with
the President was strictly con
fidential, and therefore could not
be repeated, either in detail or
substance. It is understood,
however, that Senator McLau
rin has had considerable corre
spondence with President Roose
velt on this subject prior to the
death of President McKinley,
and their relations are such that
more than two months ago Mr.
Roosevelt, then Vice President.
invited Senator McLaurin to vis
it him at Oyster Bay and talk
over the Southern situation. It
is claimed that while the rela
tionship between P r e s i d e n t
Roosevelt and Senator McLau
rin may not be as close nor the
understanding between the two
men as complete as it was be
tween President McKinley and
the junior Senator from South
Carolina, the status of Senator
McLaurin with the present ad
ministration will not differ ma
terially from that which pre
vailed while President McKin
ley was alive.
Some of Senator McLaurin's
friends assert with great post
tiveness that he has assurances
from President Roosevelt that

An entirely new ship subsidy
bill will be presented in the 57th
Congress, and great pressure
brought to bear for its .passage.
The new bill contains many very
commendable features lacking in
the old. Among some of the es
sential points are: The increased
employment of Americans on
vessels, and the non-employment
of coolies or other cheap help.
The exclusion of Standard Oil
tank steamers, or any others
similarly constructed. All ves
sels enjoying subsidies are to
carry mails free. Subsidized ves
sels are also subject to acquisi
tion by the United States gov
ernment in time of war. The new
bill carries the freight theory of
subsidy so far as to include sail
ing vessels. To build and oper
ate a sailing ship the cost is
about one-third of that of a
steamship of the same tonnage.
The bill, therefore, proposes
paying sailing ships 33 1-3 per
cent, of the amount of subsidy
proposed for steamers. The new
bill cuts the subsidy period down
from 20 to 10 years, and the
whole annual payment from nine
million to five million dollars.
The period during which con
tracts can be made under the
proposed bill, expires July 1,
1902. N o ship over 20 years old
can be eligible for subsidy.
There are vessels registered for
subsidv under the Hanna-Payne
bill tlat are 40 years old and
which would be 60 years old at
the end of the subsidy period.
The proposed bill is better cal
culated to increase the number of
new modern American ships.
