"OLD PA IS MOVING".
In a not very distant day we
expect to see a cotton mill of
25000 spindle capacity in this
county in the Salem section,
near Mr. J. F. Cole's on the Al
derman railroad; that such a
scheme is in contemplation is a
fact, which we have obtained
from Capt. D. W. Alderman, who
as every body knows, has never
found the word "failure" in any
or his undertakings, and when
ever "Old Pa" set his head to do
a thing, it is as good as accom
plished. Mr. Alderman was in
Manning attending court and we
-ad a talk with him about bring
ing his railroad to this place, his
road will run through the finest
tobacco belt in the State and we
are satisfied if he coulc be in
duced to run in here, this town
will draw a whole lot of business
now going to Florence, Tim
monsville and Darlington. Capt.
Alderman i ot averse to the
id an grees with us, that the
r( ould make a good feeder
this towm, and he will keep
the matter in mind. He then
told us of the proposed cotton
mill project, and his reasons for
desiring to locate it out in the
country; when business men are
prospecting for a site where a
large number of laborers are to
be employed, they cannot afford
to do the public spirit act, by
planting their investment, with
out taking into consideration
every detail and in the opinioon
of Captain Alderman, the place
he has in view, puts him where
the kind of labor he wants is
procurable, the location healthy,
and it is away from those attrac
tions that often is demoralizing
to labor. Then, it is on his line
of railroad, and he can, if he so
desires found a town of his own,
without consulting the whims of
other people. He says the nec
essary capital for the cotton fac
tory is not to hunt, that is now
assured, and in all probability
work will begin on it some time
during next year.
-While we would much prefer
to see this factory go up on the
outskirts of Manning, the spot
selected by Captain Alderman is
an ideal one, and has all the at
tributes of a first class 1cotton
mill location; it is in the center of
a thickly white population,
where wood for fuel is only the
cost of gathering. healthy, and
where labor can be much better
controlled than in a town. We
hope there will be no lagging in
the scheme, and that the Alder*
man cotton mill, and the Alder
man railroad to Manning will
soon be realized. The right kind
of a man is the father of both,
schemes, and we feel certain if
our local business men will now
strike while the iron is hot and
offer some inducement, we can
get the Alderman road which
now passes through the tobacco
lands and through this factory
villiage, to come here, and we
- also bring Captain Wilson's
road here which passes through
the finests of cotton belts.
This matter should be taken
hold of now, the town council,
and our merchants, and in fact
every other business interest
should get together and show by
a practical demonstation that the
people of this town are not like
young birds waiting to be fed
without an effort to get the feed
The grand jury made a rec
commendation, which we can
not see the necessity for; we
refer to the indexing of the
records. To index the records
properly, will cost several
hundred dollars and so far as
the general public is concerned,
it is no benefit; all the benefit
we can see, it will make it more
convenient for the lawyers to
get at the records, and expedite
their work in searching, but we
doubt exceedingly whether it
will lessen their charges. The
clerk of court is required by law
to index his records, and he does
it, now why the necessity to
have a separate index? Any
man of ordinary intelligence can
now go into the clerk of court's
office, and from the indexes, he
can find any record in that office.
If a new index is made, we sup
pose it means to have it so ar
ranged as to make it, not only
alphabetically arranged as it is
now, but lexicographically mak
ing an additional convenience
a luxury at the cost of the tax
payers, for a few members of
the bar to enjoy.
We do not wish to appear cap
tious about any matter, but in
our opinion there are greater
needs for the spending of the
people's taxes. It is not abso
lutely necessary to have the in
dexes arranged lexicographical
ly, and the clerk must index his
papers alphabetically, we can
get along very nicely with our
present indexes, but if the mem
bers of the bar wish to have
things more conveniently ar
ranedA then let them employ
some one at their own expefnlS
to do the work, and each one of
them can hae a copy of the in
dexcs on their private desks.
We disapprove of re-indexing
the records at public expense,
because it is not a necessity.
The jail matter, is one which ap
peals to humanity, we need a
jail, this is an absolute necessity,
and we hope that our represen
tatives, who are now free from
instructions will devise a plan to
build a new jail, without increas
ing the present levy: it can be,
done. and we hope it will be.
Build a decent jail without in
creasing the tax levy, and give
the people good roads and
bridges. and let the index-job
for some one alone.

If a newspaper or a man in
public life, refuses to sneeze
whenever a political leader opens
his snuff box, the leader's hench
men see spooks of treachery,
and look about for weapons to
destroy such heresy. When the
United States was engaged in a
way with Spain, the Democratic
usurpers,now recognized as lead
ers,thought they saw a chance to
make a political strike by
thwarting the government in its
effort to settle the war. These
leaders believed if they could
prevent the confirmation of the
treaty, the republican party
would be held responsible for
prolonging the war, and it would
cause them to lose votes in the
elections. Those who believe
fealty to country is a higher
duty than fealty to party, es
pecially when they s refused
to longer follow the leaders
after the country's flag had been
fired on by the enemy, and
joined in to give their aid to
bringing about the ratification of
the treaty were denounced.
Their independence was a great
disappointment to the political
bandits in charge of the party,
and they made it a vehicle to de
stroy those who thwarted then
in their unpatriotic scheme.
Party success at cost of coun
try bodes no good to the people,
and can only inure to the benefit
of the politicians and, when pat
riotic statesmanship prevented
the unholy scheme, all manner
of devices were manufactured to
prejudice the public mind. In
this State, those who believed
it was to the country's interest
to ratify the treaty were charged
with "republicanism," and those
who thought the government
should swing on to the Philip
pine possessions, and build up a
new market for southern pro
ducts were derisively called
"Commercial Democrats," which
was impressed upon the mind of
the masses as being "republi
canism in disguise." There was
method in this deception; it is a
known fact that in the South
anything which has the word
"Republican" attached to it,
matters not how remote, is odi
ous to the masses, and it takes
but little to inflame it into
passion-'-the professional politi
cian knew this, and that is the
reason we heard so much about
"retublicanism" the past sum
mer. it was a deceptive scheme
to play to prejudice to advance
the political interests of politi
cians. We hear minnow-minded
politicians prate about "repub
licanism" when we know they
are as ignorant of a repubiecin
principle as a heathen Chinee is
of American politics; yet these
same men wall hang out at a
country store with a jack knife
whittling a stick in one hand,
and a "chaw" of tobacco in their
mouth, and make strenuous ef
forts to show how this or that
man is not a true Democrat, and
cite some remark or article
which differed from his political
god as proof. The fact of not co
inciding with his political leader
is clear proof of heresy, and
then he proceeds to hurl all the
anathamas of a befogged mind at
the man who will not yield to
what they regard his superior
loyalty to party.
The day is fast approaching
however when this class of po
itical snivelers will have little
weight: the people are rapidly
learning that politicians are
working on the Barnum princi
ple, that "the people love to be
humbugged" and as they realize
this,they become more and more
anxious to investigate for them
selves, and the heeler's day is
drawing to a close.
Henenly Father-. Thou art good:
Our hearts are full of gratitude.
For Thy rich bounty full and free,
Our songs of praise ascend to The,
Tho' Lord of radiant hosts above,
Still dear to The Thy creature's love.
In bounteous harvests o'er our land,
We recognize Thy loving hand.
In every happy human face,
We see Thy overflowinz grace.
Thou hast our- very need supphied,
And all our craving satisfied.
Beasts of the field, birds of the air,
Have all received 'Thy loving care.
And from the greatest to the least
Are bidden to Thy bounteous feast.
Where these th ere'sweet thanksgiv
Shall men refuse to give Thee praise?
Lord, free our hearts fr-om sor-did greed.
Hlp us to see our brothers' need.
May we for those less blessed carec.
And gladly Thmy rich boutnty share

TUIE WHISKEY "JOKE' ON THE BAR
During the Pan-American Fair in
BuTalo a certain barroom much ie
quented was managed by a nian who
considered himself humorists. The fel
lowing sign was exhibited on the mirror
behind the bar:
If Whiskey Interferes With Your
Business-Give Up Your Business.
Many men who saw this sign appear
ed to think it very funny indeed, and
tI e owner of the drinking place was
ccngratulated on his pretty wit.
But unfortunately in that sign there
is more of grim than of gay humor.
The man who takes to whiskey soon
finds that it does interfere with his bus
iness, and he finds also that when he
lets whiskey interfere with his business
n. might as well-Give up his busi
noss.* If he doesn't his business will
g.ve him up.
Business and whiskey do not travel
fc.r together. The other day a young
iran, apparently with line business
p:ospects. was found dead. He had
Various explanations were oifered for
his despair and self-destruction. He
left a letter in which he expressed self
approval and the belief that he had
been treated unfairly by the world.
But the real story was left behind
him, easy to read. Beside him there
was a pint bottle partly filled with
whiskey, and there were other bottles
of the same kind in his room empty,
although he had the room but a short
time. These bottles told that whiskey
has interfered with his life, and, tak
ing the advice of the barroom mirror.
he had given up his life.
Two days since an unfortunate woman
was found dead in her lonely cabin.
She had been kind to animals, to men
and wo.nen more unfortunate even than
herself. But her life was hideously
lonely and sad. She had had friends,
wealth and a good chance in life. Kind
neighbors explained matters when she
was found dead. They tried to explain:
why ner friends never saw heralt.hough
they sent her money. They tried to
explain the miserable, lonely ending,
telling stories of early romances, etc.
But the story was told more simply
than that. Under the dead body there
was found a whiskey bottle almost
empty, and this fact was made public
a6 the inquest. The unhappy woman
had lacked food, and the anima'. that
she sought to befriend were sta.:ving
with her But she had managed some
how to get that whiskey, of which she
left a little only because she was too
weak to lift the flask to her lips.
She had sold her clothing to some
neighborinz negroes to buy the whis
It was the same story: whiskey had
interfered with h':r life and her friends,
and she had given up life and friends,
compelled to do so hy whiskey.
No names are printed1 here: no names
are needed. You read such pieces of
nwvs, quickly- told in commonplace
lanage, every day. If you read at
tentively the gr-ewsome tale of life's
tragedies and failures, the suicides and
murders, you will usually find the part
ly empty whiskey bottle sticking out
somewhere in the narrative. In almost
every case you find that the unfortunate
one has taken the witty saloon owner's
advice. "If Whiskey Interferes With

Mien and women have drunk through
all ages. They drink less now than
ever, fortunately. Some of them will
doubtless continue to drink, as long as
hard work, keen competition, unwise
living, disappointed hopes and constant
temptation to escape life's realities
shall continue to make whiskey appar
ently a friend.
Thie young man wvho killed himself
near the half-empty bottle, the sad,
abandoned woman who died of hunger
in her loneliness and with wh.iskey
near her, had probably strong r-xcuses
for their weakness and failure.
But let their sad ending be r.one the
less a lesson to you, young me.
Bear in mind that motto oni the bar
room mirror, and say to yourself: I

Dear Brethren:-I have carefully
considered all the surroundings in my
pastorate here, as well as those in an
other State where I have been called
as pastor and after prayerful considera
tion, believe it to be my duty to resign
the pastorate of your church. notwith
standing the fact that you have only

I have devoted the two years of my
life here for what I believed to be for
the best interest of old and young. I
am grateful for the devotion that has
been accorded me, and to the hour of
my death will hold in grateful heart
the memory of that devotion. The
great and principal reason why I resign
the pastorate of your church, is not
financial. but because three of my chil
dren are now away at school, and I feel 1
the need of going where their educa
tional advantages will be better than
they can ever hope to enjoy should I 1
remain with you. Knowing that you
will appreciate my desire to do all in
my power for my children, I am sure
vou will not blame me for taking this i
step. I beg that you accept my resig .
You have truly been kind and con
siderate of me, and I pray that heaven's
richest blessings may rest upon you all.
Whenever it is convenient for me, I
shall be pleased to mingle with you in6
the church as well as in your homes,
which have been always open to me.
Yours truly and fraternally,
