The politicians who are now
scrambling for the shoes of the
dead Collector of the Port of
Charleston, and the United States
Marshal, are giving the President
a great deal of harrowing annoy
ance these days. President Roose
velt has had some tough pro
positions to contend with, and
since the race question has been
piled upon him he finds that
he cannot brush it aside without
doing his party a great injury.
So far as this State is concerned
it would matter not whether the
brother in black was recognized,
but in the large doubtful states,
The negro vote is a factor, and
the President cannot give the
colored applicants for official
favor the cold shoulder. In the
State of Ohio and other West
ern States, the negro vote is a
large factor, and both parties
keep a sharp look-out for it. If
the Republicans fails to give the
negroreognition, the Democrats
make-olitical capital of it,. and
ssan inducement to capture
that vote they make promises of
recognition. In our opinion,
Roosevelt is not inclined to en
courage the negro in politics but
he is so situated that he must do
something for him, or take the
chances of letting the Democrats
in the West capture the politi
We have about reached the
conclusion that we of the South
are not acting with wisdom when
we contend to prevent our re
presentation being cut down;
we believe, were congress to re
duce the representation in the
South, the elimination of the
negro vote would follow and
two white parties would result,
putting the Southern States on
an equal footing with the States
of the North, East, and West:
all sectional lines would be wiped
out, and a healthy political con
dition would come, but as long
as the negro is to be considered,
matters not how insignificantly
there will always be a solid south
arrayed against a solid north,
and the south will always be
held back. It is plain to see,
that the south only has a voice
in the political conventions,
which is nothing more nor less
than the politician's field: what.
we need, is a voice in the form
ing of the governmen11l policies
of the country where the peo
ple as well as the politicians can
be benefitted. What good is
there to the people, if we are
not permitted to have a hand in
the shaping of policies? The
south is a powerful factor in a
political convention, and it furn
ishishes a large vote, but it does
not help the people of the south,
if we could shal5e our course so
that the solid north would divide
we then might get something
out of it; this however, will not
come as long as we continue in
our present course. The negro
is practically out of our political
calculations here; in the north
ne ~is not, he is a strong factor
there, because he is needed to
overcome the vast Democratic
southern majority. The cutting
down of our representation
would change this, and it would
in our opinion, be but temporary,
because as soon as both North
and South become divided, new
alliances would be formed upon
pending issues, and then the
South would win friends at the
North whose interests would be
identical with ours, and the
South's just r ep resen tation
would be returned and held for
When Senator Tillman was
seeking new alliances in the
West, he was on the right track,
but unfortunately he did get the
proper element. Those who
took to his ideas were made up
of the element imbued with all
sorts of wild theories, which did
not appeal to the business
mind-it was a revolutionary
element, and business men were
frightened away. A change is
coming, a close observer of po
litical events must see it, and
the only question is, will the
people of the South act wisely
and take advantage of the op
portunity, or will they cling to
ideas that are every day proving
detrimental to their interests?
STEP UP GENTLEMEN.
The test case brought by the
medical students of last year's
class, has been decided by the
supreme court against the stu
dents, and the effect of that de
cision, makes it unlawful for
anybody to practice medicine in
this State who, after the Act
was passed, did not take a four
year course in a reputable medi
cal college. All but one of the
class of last year refused to go
before the State board for exam
ation, and to test the matter a
young doctor was indicted in the
county of Marlboro, his case was
appealed to the supreme court
of the State, which makes it fin
al, and if the young gentlemen
who grauated from the South
Carolina Medical College, ex
pect to practice medicine in this
State lawfully they will have to
do now. that which they should
have done at first. go before the
State board and stand the exam
ination. We fought the passage
of the Act excusing four year
graduates from going before the
State board, and did so, believ
ing we were doing right, noth
ing has transpired since to con
vince us to the contrary, and the
only way the presant Act could
possibly get through the Senate,
was the representations of the
student-body, making it appear
that at their request the bill was
so worded that the senior class
of that year would not be its
beneficiaries; we suspected them
then, and continued our fight
against the bill, not because we
had no faith in the representa
tions made, but solely upon the
principle that we were opposed
to turning loose young men to
practice medicine and experiment
with human life, without first
having been put through a legal
test, aside from the test required
at the college; after a hard fight,
and personal pleas made to the
Senators, the bill passed by the
presiding officer casting a de
ciding vote, and as soon as the
Act was approved by the Gov
ernor, the very class professing
they were not to be benefitted,
immediately made the claim that
they were not required to go be
fore the State board, and all but
one of them refused, and have
been unlawfully practicing med
icine in this State ever since.
Now since the highest legal tri
bunal in the State has settled
the matter, and removed the
doubt, we presume the graduates
of that year will apply for exam
ination, if they do not, they will
be running risk of prosecution,
and the people will loose faith
in their ability as doctors. We
hope if there are any of the class
in this county, they will at once
secure the necessary certificate
from the State board.
The death - of ex-speaker
Thomas B. Reed removes from
public observation one of the
greatest parlimentarians this
country has ever produced. Mr.
Reed ruled the lower House of
Congress with an iron hand, and
his decisions have set the pace
for all future presiding officers.
Notwithstanding the fact that
he was a partisan Republican,
the Democratic members had a
wonderful admiration for the
man and his magnificient ability.
We are now approaching the
last mile stone in the year 1902
with every indication that the
coming new year will start off
with bright prospects. The
merchants are doing a fine trade,
and the farming element has
planted largely their early grain,
so if the seasons continuelfavor
able there will be less drafts
made upon the West for cereals
and the vast amount of money
formerly sent out of the country
will remain at home for the mak
ing of another crop, and the de
velopment of our own lands. It
is with greati gratification we
can state that many of our far
mers are taking time by the
forelock and are making their
arrangements for fertilizers, pay
ing cash, and thereby saving
the profits of time-dealers, All
of these things tend to the en
couragement of adding an im
petus to all branches of business:
as the farmer prospers every
avocation in life prospers also.
The merchant is encouraged to
force forward his business and
the developement of the country
is extended all along the line.
