-There is considerable substantial talk
now for the organization of a new bank.
which we hope, if it results in the es
tablishment of one, will make it less ex
pensive for people to do business with
such an institution. The rate of inter
est is plenty high, and it eats like a
cancerous sore, but when added to
that, are the expenses paid to the
bank's attorney, the borrowing busi
ness is burdensome. The people need
competition in the banking business as
well as in any other line, and if the
new bank will compete and _lessen
charges for obtaining money, it will
be a benefit to the community other
svise not. Then there is another way
-to look for benefit from competing
'anks; in this town some of the officers
.of the bank are also interested
in other business, and there is a
feelng on the outside, that these
oicers have an advantage of business
information they do not like for com
~petiors in the bank-a decided advan
-tage. It is a common practice in the
business world to apply to local banks
for the financial standing of men, and
business men are jealous of their rate
ing, they would rather not have their
financial rating fixed by men who are
in the same business as themselves.
Therefore if a new bank is established
its officers ought not to be engaged in
business in conipetition with the bank's
patrons, and it will, in time, share the
increased banking business that com
peting banks will create.

and finally Maj. A. Levi became the
purchaser for $2,650.
For delinquent taxes four lots in Ful
ton township were sold to A. Levi, at
torney, for $15.25. and in St. James
township a tract of land, sold as the
property of Midldleton & Ravenel, cou
taining 64M acres, was sold to W. C. Dui
R~ant for $285.05. When this piece of
property was offered M. C. Galluchat,
Esq., gave notice that the property be
longed to E. R. Galluchat and is in her
oossession, the taxes were being paid
by her. and that whatever claim Mid
dleton -& Ravenel had was for a debt,
and the same has been paid. This had
the effect of making some who would
have bid stop for fear of a lawsuit.
When the SheritT had concluded his
official sales he offered, for the execu

11 acres of land, which was bought by

Then was introduced - English
from Charleston. who was introduced
as "a man with the money." This
speaker made no pretenses towards ora
tory, but he made a very good speech:
gave wholesome advice, freed entirely
from anything which would excite race
prejudice, urged upon his hearers to
pay their debts and "stay at home."
The speaker went on and urged his
people to be thrifty and honest: their
advancement depended on their indi
vidual efforts and not upon Congress or
the politicians. He said "I do not care
hat Congress does,by attending strict
ly to my own business, treating with
justice those with whom I do business,
and by paying my debts, and not wast
ing my earnings: I am a free and inde
pendent American citizen, respected by
my neighbors in spite of Congress."
The whole line of his remarks indi
cated a conservative spirit, a man with
good, practical sense. and a man who
has been successful in life. English's
speech was followed by the irrepressi
ble, changing its tune only in regard to
length, to give time for a collection to
be taken up by the purchasing of bal
lads to help pay expenses.
In a speech embellished with many
rhetorical figures. Chairman Stewart
introduced the orator of the day Hon.
S. E. Smith, a government employee in
the Charleston custom house. This
speaker bega:a by apologizing for
speaking plain, that he did not come to
hurl boquets, but to tell plain truths,
and to hew to the line, regardless of
where the chips would fall. He evi
dently had not prepared his oration, as
it was not throughly knitted together,
but from the position taken by him he
made a good speech. At times we
we thought we could detect signs of
race prejudice, but in a moment it
would be driven away by a kindly ref
erence to the white of the South.
Smith is evidently a student of poli
tics and argues more from the stand
point of the politician than from the
student's view search of a solution of
the race prfoblem in the South. He
urged his hearers to stand up for their
rights and strongly intimated the day
is not far off before their right of bal
lot would be returned to them. He was
opposed to the deportation of the negro
and spoke of the advancement made by.
his race, and lhe deprecated the unwise.
as he termed it, statesmanship of pres
ent political leaders. The speaker at
times would wax warm in eloquence.
and evidently had given the political
condition of 'his race a great deal of
stud. He did not seem kindly disposed
towards substituting foreign emigration
for negro labor, and his argument on
line was teeming with logic.
The ceremonies closed with singing a
ballad, led by RI. A. White, and the
benediction by Rev. R. H. Perrin.
