MANNING, s. C., OCT. 23. 1901.
PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY.
As announced in last week's
issue of THE TIMEs the editor was
called to Charleston to attend
the meeting of the State exposi
tion commission of which he has
the honor of being a member:
the principal object of the meet
ing was to ascertain what pro
gress had been made on the
"State's building." the probabil
ity of having a fine exhibit of the
State's resources, and what else
should be done to make a good
showing to the people for
the ;50,001 apropriated.
The Commission made a for
mal inspect ion of all of the
buildings. talked to the officers
and contractors; they also had
talks with the foremen in charge
of gangs of workmen, and it was
the unanimous conclusion that
unless some unforeseen condi
tion arises such as fire, storm,
pestilence or some other Provi
dential cause, the South Carolina
Inter State and West Indian Ex
position will throw open its gates
for the reception of visitors on
the 1st, day of December, not
withstanding the fact that there
is a class of men going through
the country spreading a report
that the "exposition has been
postponed for two months," this
report is calculated to chill the
efforts of those who are urging
the counties and municipalities
that have done nothing so far,
to get into the procession and
take advantage of this opportu
nity to advertise their resources.
We feel positively sure that the
Charleston exposition will be
nearer completion on its "open
ing day" than was Atlanta or
Nashville. Of course all of the
buildings will not have been fin
ished by' the first day of Decem
ber, but all of the principal ones,
will be sufficiently advanced to
receive and install exhibits.
Every exposition that has so far
been held, has had to open before
all of the buildings were fully
The State's building, which is
not as far advanced as most of
the other principal buildings,
will have its wood work finished
by the 15th, day of November,
is an assurance we have from
Mr. Sol Krasnoff one of Man
ning's expert builders who is in
charge of a large force on that
building. The .Commission- was
very much gratified with what
they saw, the magnitude of the
work, what has, and is being
daily accomplished is simply
marvelous. If the representa
tives of the counties and towns
that have done nothing so far,
would run down to Charleston
and go over the grounds, then
go into the administration build
ing, and look over the records of
the "concessions department,"
they will be convinced that the
exposition is a huge affair, and
one that should have in the build
ing erected by the State an ex
hibit from every county and
town; there should not be an in
dustry in the State left out of the
picture, nor should there be left
out anything that can possibly
become a money producer. The
representative men in those
counties that have not applied
for space, will not be doing them
selves or their people justice, if
* they continue their indifference
in the matter. We do not say
this to boom up an exhibit sim
ply to fill space, that would be
unnecessary, because there is
now on file applications for space
from foreign exhibitors that
will utilize every inch, and these
people pay good money too, but
the people of this State have
erected a building for the exhi
bition of their resources, and
any county or town or individ
ual can have a place without a
cent of cost, provided the space
allotted is used for the showing
of articles manufactured, grown,
or compounded in this State;
the object of which is to adver
tise to the world what is possi
ble here, and thus invite to come
and live amongst us, a class of
people who will help us to devel
ope our possibilities.
The exposition will not only
open up on scheduled time, but
the exhibition will be a grand
one, even grander than its pro
jectors at first calculated. The
buildings will be superb, and the
five-eights of a mile of colonnades
containing the government ex
hibit will be the grandest dis
play that has ever been shown
in the South. To give our read
ers an idea that something "is
doing" in Charleston, the expo
sition company have sold the
race track concession alone for
$35,000, and all of the other con
cessions bring a proportionate
price, with more applications than
can be supplied.
If there was not a single exhi
bit from any county or town in
this State, the space in the
building provided by the State
could be filled to overflowing
with foreign exhibits who would
gladly pay for the privilege, but
we have a building their, and we
are invited to come into it with
out co.;t, to carry out thme object
of this the graest institution
for lettin'g the world know of
our existence that has ever been
gotten up for us.
It is true that this is an unus
ually bad year with the farmers,
but notwithstanding this, there
is not a county or town in South
Carolina, but can be represented
and should be. We have no hes
itency in urging the people to
arouse themselves in this mat
ter, and if your representative
.m wilnt take the nmor in
terest, make them stand. aside
and get others. If we appear
enthusiastic, it is because of
what we saw, and every man
who has sense enough to appre
eiate the value that will be de
rived from bringing forward our
vast resources from their hiding
places, will also be enthused
when he goes their and realizes
the magnitude of the undertaking,
what has been accomplished,
and what must be the result in
time to come.
A WORTHLESS KICK.
President Roosevelt has cre
ated a furore among the politi
cians and newspapers, because
he entertained Booker T. Wash
ington, a highly educated and
cultured negro-an educational
leader of his race, a man of high
character, and one who has de
livered addresses to the National
Educational Association. We
heard him when the Association
met in Charleston, and saw him
sitting upon the platform with
the distinguished educators, la
dies and gentlemen, also the
ladies of Charlestou's elite socie
ty. Washington if we remember
right was the guest of the com
mittee at the suggestion of the
editor of the News and Courier,
and his address was the finest
delivered on that occasion. It
therefore strikes us that Presi
dent Roosevelt in sitting down
to dinner with Washington did
not put himself in a social
equality position any more
than did the distinguished
committee who - had charge of
the National Educational Asso
ciation when it convened in Char
leston, and this pretended hor
ror, to our mind, is straining at
gnats and swallowing camels.
If President Roosevelt desired
Booker Washington as a guest
at his table it is alright with us,
and none of our funeral, and
some of the same people who
are kicking up so much dust
about the incident, would travel
clean to Washington to accept an
invitation to dine with the Pres
ident, even if he did entertain a
negro at his table. President
Cleveland who was supposed to
be a Democrat entertained at his
table a mullato queen with an
unsavory character, and every
president since the war has had
at his receptions negroes as
guests. Fred Douglas in his
time, was a prominent figure at
all of the State functions, and
even after he married a white
woman, he continued his attend
ance at the great functions in
the white house.
Because President Roosevelt
invited and entertained a negro
at his table, is no reason why the
social door shculd be opened to
admit the negro to our dining
rooms. There has beea an un
necessary amount of temper
shown in this incident, not calcu
lated to help matters; if there
are those who regard a cultured
negro entitled to commune with
them socially, why let them en
joy their tastes to their hearts'
content. 'It is different with us
down South, where we get a
whiff of the coon every day.

A GOOD APPOINTMENT.
George R. Koester, editor of
the Columbia Record has been
appointed Collector of Internal
Revenue through the influence
of Senator McLaurin. Mr.
Koester is a Democrat, and when
he was editor of the Columbia
Register he did valient service
for the Reform movement. He
was among the strongest advo
cates of Tillman, but always a
warm personal frien-d of McLau
rin. When McLaurin advanced
his progressive ideas, Koester
was among the first to stand by
him, when others who pretended
friendship deserted at Tillman's
first howl of opposition. Pres
ident Roosevelt has carried out
his promise to appoint a Repub
lican where a suitable one could
be found, but if such an one was
not presented, the service was
more important than party, and
he would appoint a Democrat.
The Republicans put forward a
man for the place and he was
about to get the plum, but jeal
ousy came along and knocked it
from his grasp, this caused a
rumpus and exposed to the Pres
ident the unfitness of the Repub
lican applicants. M c L a u r i n
took advantage of the situation
to offer a Democrat, and the
President accepted him. Of
course the opponents of McLau
rin will endeavor to make capi
tal out of this incident, but if
Senator McLaurin can get our
federal offices filled with good
Democrats, he will be doing the
State more service than to sulk
and permit these positions get
ting into the hands of Republi
We congratulate Mr. Koester
on his good fortune, and con
gratulate President Roosevelt
on his efforts to better the pub
lic service, and we say hurrah
for Senator McLaurin for hav
ing the brain to make himself
an influential factor at the seat

places, only high clifis, Iuearly perpen
dicular, were to be seen covered with
moss, and at some points our boat
seemed to be near enough the shore for
one to step on, from the boat. Three
days sailing from Kobe we anchored at
Nagasaki, Japan, having had two days
delightful sailing through the inland
sea where the scenery was so beauti
ful that it formed i'mpressions that
never I before had, none half so weird.
On September the 9th. after our boat
had anchored in the bay of Nagasaki,
arrangements were made and we were
allowed to go ashore.
There were no docks for our boat to
land at, so we were compelled to lay at
anchor some one and a half miles from
shore. Mountains some 7 and 8,000
feet could be seen, the city of Nagas
aki being about 120,000 in population.
Upon my arrival in the city. I found
the streets very narrow and only on the
street that fronts the harbor could side
walks be found. Many nice houses of
brick and gray stone were there. The
most enjoyment found by the sol
diers was a ride in a Rickshaw, two
wheels, one seat for one, and one only,
and top, with a Jap to pull the vehicle,
the fare being ten cents, American mon
ey per-hour. We lay at Nagasaki four
days, supposing that soon we would be
in China, instec.d, upon leaving the city
of the Japs, we were under orders for
On the 13th, our boat again set sail,
and steamed into the China Sea, two
davs vovage in these waters will -long
be remembered, for never before did I
see such a storm. All port holes had to
be closed, we were locked in lower deck
like sheep. At times the entire ship was
under water and the pilot was strapped
to his post, the gale lasting some 36
hours. The storm appeared with the
sky a blaze with crimson, gold and
purple, crashes of thunder such as I
never heard before, fierce pelting of
rain, the celestial batteries at frequent
intervals illumined the surface of the
of the white cap waves that were be
ginning to roll and rush together with
madness. We expec ted each fleeting
moment to be our las.:, but Providence
was with us. On the 17th. we were
again free and happy for now we were
in ihe Bay at Manila P. I., soon to be
landed and make ready for fighting.
I will close my writing for this time,
promising to give soon some description
of the Philippines.

Editor The Manning Times:
I didn't mean to desert you exactly,
but it's a buisy time with us farmers.
We farmers is as buisy as a bee in a
bucket of tar trying to get together
what little crop we have made, and
I'm a telling you sir. its a short horse
this year shor's you born. It looks like
it oughten't to be much trouble to
gether a little short crop, but I believe
its more trouble to gether a little
crop than a big one. It looks like "B"
is the only one of your correspondents
that remains faithful. Go it "B", we
glory in your spunk, I love to hear from
you. It is so nice to read the sayings
and doings of the people in different
parts of the county. We could all be
a heap of help and satisfaction to one
another, if we could hear from one
another every week or so, and hear
what's a going on all around. One big
trouble with us one gallus farmers, is
that we aint interested enough in what
our brother farmers and the rest of the
country is a doing. It reminds me of
an old mule. He just tucks his head
down and vows "I'm a going to pull
this here load or bust the hame-string''
When you strike a feller like that, he
is most sure to be one-sided and selfish.
He jus; gets into the old ruts that his
dady before him was in, and thinks
that's good enough. The stars forbid
that I or any body else should ever
disparage the ways and the days of our
fathers. When can we, especially the
older ones, ever forget the days when
our fathers was at the helm: when we
had somebody to look up to and depend
on. Ah! those happy days can never
return, but this is a fast age. There's
fast doings all around, every where.
The trains run faster. In fact there
didn't use to be any train. We can
make a trip now in one hour that use
to take all day. But it aint no use to
go to numeration the fast doins. Every
thing is fast. About the only thing
that aint got any faster is lightening.
And I don't believe any of the smart
elix will ever improve on that. People
are faster and quicker because they
live faster. What I was hitting at is
that its a fast age and the fellow that
stays in the old ruts entirely, will
shorely get left in the race that we are
all a running. And Mr. Editor, I've
been a thinkin on another subject that
I reckon some people will think is
mighty fast. But as I said before if a
fellow these times don't eat fast, work
fast, and think fast he wont get his
share. This subject that I'm a thinkin
on is one that some body has already
done a lot of powerful fast thinking on.
They've been a thinkin a heap too fast
for us farmers. What I'm a talking
bout is the tax they make us pay for
the priveledge of planting and making
tobacco. I don't believe they make us
pay for planting it, but they just as
well do that as to tax us for sellhng it.
cause if wve didn't make it we would
hardly sell it. Now one and all, we
don't~ want to be unreasonable, for
"there's reason in all things." But
we do claim that the ware-house men
charge an unreasonable price for
handling our tobacco, aud it seems like
there aint any law to help us along
that line. It does seem like among so
many big law makers as we have got,
there ought to be a few among the
number that had back-bone enough to
look capital in the face and say "we
propose to pass a law for the benefit of
the tobacco farmers of South Carolina"
Mr Editor, 1 believe you have got pluck
enough to do it. Try it, for the saka
of your one gallus cousins. There was
something said about it once, but for
some cause, presumably, unknown to
Ithe farmer, it was snowed under. We
believe that one of the very happiest
hits that the town of Manning could
make not for the farmers alone, but for
the business interest of the whole
town would be to rent one of the ware
houses there next season, and buy to
bacco, free of all charges. That may
sound visionary, one-sided or anything
else if you please, but 1 tell you Mr.
Editor, if such a move was made, the
immence amount of tobacco sold there,
and the tremendous volume of trade
thrown to the merchants would be
surprising to the natives. But we
wont ask that much. But we do lay
this pi'opersition fairly and squarly and
honestly before the merchants of Man
ning. Next season, rent one of the
ware-houses there, hir'e a competant
manager and other necessary- hands to
manage the business propperly and
make your ware-house charges just
enough to pay actual and necessary ex
penses and just as sure as you are a
living critter, when it becomes noised
abroad that Manning has a big lot of

The Kind You Have Always Beught
A certain newspaper in Car

tising matter through the coun
try newspapers, in the shape of
a supplement; as an inducement
to get this matter circulated it
proposes to print the name of
the paper sending it out so that
it will appear as a home produc
ed suplement. This newspaper
is always willing to help along
almost any project, but when it
comes to distributing advertis
ing matter we are not classing
such in the charity or patriotic
lists. We therefore propose to
let the Charleston paper distrib
ute its advertisements through
some other source, and the news
paper that undertakes to send
out these proposed supplements
will find themselves working for
what others get pay for. If these
supplements did not contain
comme-rcial advertising, w e
would take pleasure in sending
them out, but as they do, we are
in the commercial advertising
business ourself, and must have
pay for all such matter going to
our readers through this medium.

Editor The Manning Times:

my army life and travels, and having
promised to give a description of my
trip. I shall begin with my leaving
Ft. Sheridan Ill., on August 10th, 1900,
with Co. M, 5 Inf. We left over the
N. W. R. R., going through the States
of Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming.
Utah, Nevada and California to San
Franscisco. Our trip through the
West was a pleasant one, and many
strange sights were presented, not
soon to be forgotten. The small mounds
and hills around South Platte, Neb,
were very pretty in their carpet of
green grass, while I must not forget
the beautiful view we enjoyed of "Buf
falo Bill's Ranch." Soon we had fin
ished our trip through Nebraska, and
were gliding through the State of
Wyoming. Most of our trip through
this State was through deserts, I care
not to make again.
We changed on to the Southern
Pacific R R. track at Ogden Utah.

10,000 feet high, its broad shoulders of
red clay and the large rocks hanging
along the top and sides was a picture
Leaving Ogden, our train was pulled
by two engines, which by degrees
pulled our train through the high and
lofty mountains of the Sierra Nevada
The mountain scenery was very
impressing, and time does not permit a
full description, so I must hurry a long.
Four days ride on the train found us on
the 14th of August at San Francisco.
We went in camp at Presido, some
three miles from the business parts of
Frisco, and at the eastern portion.
The commodious campingr grounds
were quite hilly, and the pine-trees
decorating the hills of the West, while
to the East across the bay, high cliffs
p resented themselves partly clothed in
living green, the indented clay tops,
gave enough contrast that a stranger
could only admire this portion of the
Occident. At night fall when the sun
had faded to its night of rest, the gol
den moon appeared from behind the
hanging clouds, peeptng from over the
distant ridge, locked our hearts with
love. And when we were in silent
sleep the golden rays guided our dreams
to everlasting love into the hand of
Morpheus.. Awaking to find our
hearts free for a days pleasure in the
great city of the golden West.

the soldiers to visit, was "China Town",

I visited the golden gate park, cliff
house andI many other noted places,
during my stay in the city. I lost no
time in seeing all that was to be seen.
On the 21st of August we were paid off
and we went on board the U. S. Trans
port Sherman at high noon for a trip
to China, mid the cheers of our many
Frisco friends, the motorman pulled
the bell-cord, and the conductor yell

yelling when our boat steamed for open
sea, that 1 could not hear myself talk,
however, our boat had soon steamed
from the docks and in a few minutes
we had passed out of sight of our
friends, entering through the golden

we were issured heavy clothing and

I found it almost impossible to keep
warm, only when standing over the
grating of the engine room. We man
aged to live up to Sept. 6th, when we
found our boat at anchor at the city of
Kobe, Japan. The weather was warm,
and the scenery was beautiful. The
city of Kobe, 100.000 in population, is
situated at the foot of a large moun
tain. The city i-uns a long the coast
some 4 or 5 miles.
The most important feature of our
being at Kobe, was the trip) that lay in
wait for us thi-ough the Inland sea.
Our boat was compelled to take a pilot
fo the trip through that sea: soon we
had made the start, and both sides of
the sea were high and lofty mountains
some 7 or 8000 feet. The mountains
were beautiful, for the Japs had the
mountain sides built up in terraces.
