OUR DELEGATION'S WOIK.
We have gone over the work
of the general assembly that has
been completed and enacted into
law, and find Clarendon's repre
sentatives credited with the fol
Mr. Lesesne: "A joint resolu
tion to authorize and require the
board of. county commissioners
of Clarendon county to draw
their warrant upon the county
treasurer of said county in favor
of the Paully Jail Building Corn
pany for the sum of $590.00 to
pay the balance due for building
jail, and to authorize the treas
urer to pay same." When the
original Act was passed authoriz
ing the building of the jail, the
cost was not to exceed $6000 and
under that Act the Commission
ers were not permitted to spend
over $6,000, but when the con
tract was awarded, by an agree
ment with the delegation, the
contract was for $6,590, and the
bill introduced by Mr. Lesesne
was to make up the difference.
Mr. Lanham: An act to require
common carriers to transport
baggage or sample trunks of 200
pounds weights or less, free of
charge with any passenger.
Mr. Lanham's original bill de
manded 250 pounds,the railroads
had alreadly permitted 150
pounds, but as a compromise the
legislature made a concession of
50 pounds. Under Mr. Lanham's
bill a drummer can car-y 200
pounds of baggage free of charge
but if a farmer undertook to car
ry a barrel of flour or a keg of
nails he would certainly be re
quired to make an excursion
deep down into his jeans and
pay the freight.
Mr. Lanham; "An Act to
amend an act Entitled; 'An act
to require electric street railway
componies to affix vestibules to
thea cars for the protection of
~otormen' approved Feb.25. 1902,
so as to include Charleston coun
-tv in its provisions." This bill
has no reference or effect upon
the interests of Clarendon coun
ty, unless perhaps some young
man should accept a position as
moterman on a Charleston trol
l..ey, then in that case Mr. Lan
ham's bill will protect him from
the oceau winds as he goes skim
ming along through the- streets
Senator Davis: "An act to
provide for the purchase and
conductiof a poor farm in Claren
don county." Just what demand
there is for the measure, we do
not know, but a very few years
ago Clarendon owned and oper
ated a poor farm, and it wasi de
manded to be sold, not only by
-the county commissioners but
several grand juries, and now to
provide for another poor farm
looks curious to us especially so,
when we consider the advance
in real estate. It does strike us
that before the county's money
is snent for the purchase of a
. poor farm, the people should
have a voice in the matter, and
as the primary comes off in a few
months the question may be sub
mitted. We do not think the
people are willing for one dede
gation to sell county property at
a very cheap figure, and another
delegation turn around and buf
at an advance figure. If county
property is to become a shuttle
cock for it representatives. we
are certainly in an unstable con
dition. Where is the demand for
a poor farm? Our county com
missioners should take the pub
lic into its confidence before
making this expenditure. We
do not question Senator Davis'
motives for introducing the meas
ure, no doubt he was requested
by the commissioners, and we
have no objection to the author
ity being given, so that it may
be used in case it is a necessity,
but we do object to this thing of
selling and buying county prop
erty, without giving the public
an opportunity to express itself.
POLITICAL CAPITAL AT CHARACTER'S
There are always two sides to
every story, and when we first
read the report of the investiga
ting committee, it looked as if aL
great big scandal had been un
earthed, which was likely to put
back into the treasury a whole
lot of money that had wrongful
ly been mulct from the people.
The report also indicated that
the Commissioners in charge of
the work of completing the
State House, were not without
fault in permitting the State to
be swindled, creating the imnpres
sion that there was collusioni and
graft; when the report of the
-committee was presented to the
general assembly there seemed
to be a general desire to absolve
the Commission from mntentional
wrong; at the same time, the
discussions pointed to "an era
of good stealing." The State
House Commission was denied a
hearing before the committee,
but it does not let the matter
Commission are jealous of then
reputations and they propose tc
push the investigation to the ut
most, until they convince the
people, that the investigatml
committee did them a grave mn
justice. We have read their re
ply to the committee's report,
which is a carefully prepared
statement, backed up with afi
davits, and to our mind it is a
clear refutation of the charges
made by the committee. ThE
showing made by the Commis
sion is indeed very gratifying tc
its many friends.
We fear when this affair ih
thoroughly sifted, it will exposE
a political scheme for the pur
pose of boosting some one foi
high position, and if such is the
motive prompting the investiga
ting committee, the last one of
them should be sunk into politi
cal oblivion. To attempt tc
build a reputation by falsely
breaking down the good names
of others is dastardly.
When this matter was first
br'ought to public attention, we
believed the Commission the
victims of the architect and con
tractor. never for a moment
would we believe anyone of them
would lend himself to a dishon
orable act, but the leaky condi
tion of the building was con
vincing proof that the work was
not carefully done,and somebody
was responsible for it. The re
port of the committee not only
showed up this faulty -work, but
made it appear that much of the
State property was stolen and
carried away. This was a se
vere reflection upon the Com
mission, regardless of the dis
claimers of the committee of in
tention to reflect upon the integ
rity of the Commission; under
all the circumstances the general
assembly did wrong in not grant
ing a full and an impartial hear
ing to the Commission.
HARMONY MEANS SUCCESS.
The Democratic party should
put out its sign, "Wanted a. can
didate who can get all elements
of the party together." As long
as Colonel Bryan is regarded a
factor by one element, and Gro
ver Cleveland a factor by the
other, just so long will the party
remain where it is. What is
needed to put up anything like a
decent fight, is harmony and
thorough organization. So far
as the South is concerned, its
electoral vote will go to whoever
the Democratic convention nom
inates, even if it is General Nel
son Miles, the man who pui
shackles upon the feet of Jeffer
son Davis, the electoral vote oJ
the South does not belong to the
people, because we are so condi
tioned that we have given tiie
politicians power of attorney tc
use it as they see fit. Why, ii
the Democrats were to nominate
Roosevelt, every electoral vote
in the South would be cast foi
him, whether we agree with
his policy or not. Anything and
any one bearing the Democratic
label will get the Southern elec
toral vote; therefore it is neces
sary for the party leaders tc
look well to the North, East and
West, and exert their efforts tc
bring.all factions together. Bry
an speaking in the South is a
waste of time, even if he is 1.ook.
ing after Hearst's interests foi
the nomination. If Bryan wants
the South Carolina delegatior
for Hearst, Tillman is the marn
to arrange with, and just so is i
all over t h e South, thesE
Statesare under o n e - m a r
rule. But in the North, Eas1
and West the people havE
a controlling say, and if WE
hope to do anything in the nex1
national contest, our leaders wil:
have to persuade the forces
where votes are needed.
Hearst, through his agents, is
making a hard tight for the nom.
ination, and if he is nominated
it is expected that his money
barrels will be opened up a1
every street corner. There wil
be lots of money spent in thE
coming election by both parties
but with Hearst as the nomineE
of the Democratic party money
will flow like water, not in thE
South, but in the closely con
tested States like Delaware, New
Jersey, Connecticut and Indiana,
and it is in those States wherE
our leaders should be right .nos
bringing about harmony.

The Russians and the Japa
nese advance guards had a land
battle south of the Yala river,
and the reports say the Russians
lost 2500 men. Port Arthur is
short of meat and vegetables
and in bad condition for a long
seige. Japan has formally
taken possession of Korea. The1
indications point to a confine
ment of hostilities to a limited
area, wihwas sgetdby
the United States; should this
fail, in that7.event, we look for a
general European war, and the
United States will certainly get
into the mix-up. The effect of a
general European conflict will
be demoralizing to agricultural
and manufacturing in the United
States; ports will be closed and
there will be no markets to ab
sorb our products, thus bringing
about a condition of stagnation.
The farmers of the South will1
be the 'heaviest losers, cotton
will not bring the cost of pro.
duction, and food products will
be a waste. We hope this gov
ernment will continue to insist
that Russia and Japan will do
their fighting within a specified
space that will be agreed upon by
the powers. If this is done, the
fighting will be of shorter dura
tion and there will be no excuse
for any other power to intefere.
The moment another govern.
ment becomes involved in the
now pending war, it will precipi
tate one of the bloodiest conflicts
the world has ever seen, and as
our interests on the other side of
the Atlantic and Pacific are get
ting greater, it will be impossi

It has been wisely suggested
by the News and Courier that
politics be kept out of the bureau
of immigration. In this we
heartily agree, and believe Gov
ernor Heyward will select a n-an
to have charge of this depa rt

and talents for the installation
of a system of advertising the
State's resources which will ac

our opinion the position shoul~d
be filled by a young, active 1r.an
who is conversant with all parts
of the State, and who is able to1
give intelligent information
when called upon. It will not
do to make the position a sina
cure, or an asylum for superan

the office be an asset for politi
cians to pay political debts with.

The cotton seed oil mills, in tal

ight, and are adding much to g
the prejudice of the farmers 1
Lgainst them. The complaint
kith the farmers is, that the
mills will not sell them meal,and
hat little they will sell is at an
xorbitant price. The tempta
;ion to sell seed at 311 cents per th

rs, but with others it is no in- an
lucement at all. Next year the j

the nanagement of these home v
ndustries give their local pat
onage no consideration; they do *il
2ot provide for local consump- ge
ion, and they do not save a dol- to
ar to local consumers. The ex- tn
)rbitant price charged for meal i
s not brought about by the high 2

;eed was bought before the high M
rice was offered. There is only
me way to prevent the mills .

tnd that is to stand- firm, sell
geed at their value, and buy
ther fertilizer if the price of
neal is too high, or refuse to sell

est, and utilize the seed in the soil
is a fertilizer. The temporary
uducemnents offered to get the

i lesson the farmers will remem -

Lars! Think, ye men who were plow
boys in the 70s of encircling a plow
mule's neck with a fine, heavy, copper
bradded, flax-sewed, all-leather collar
with a click of an arrangement for fas
tening it, worth anywhere from 51.65
to 82.25. We used to plow for our "dad- i
dies" when cotton brought from 18 to
0c. but no such collars for plow mules
could be afforded. Then the plow lines
I see these times! Why, they are
armed with a snap for the bit-ring, so
tat a boy will have no time to stand
around the horse's head and consume

days was of very little worth, exceptC
the price paid for it. You couldn't
even smell eome of it. Then others
was about all scent. Now it's good -

cotton, and often more, to the acre.
Yes, this hope comes. I am so glad ~
it comes. It has good foundations for
itself. It stands on the past. the pres
ent and the future. It sees with the
vision of th e prophet great things need

results to come of such deeds.
I could wish that, among other
things, coming into the field of this
large spring vision the public road -
could have a place in the procession.
Now is the time when the plowman
cares not for any margin between the
plowed ground and the wheel ruts, and
;o he leaves no margin. The plowman
at this season "does the road dirt" by
lumping his plow dirt into the ruts and
dragging the plow across the road.
Let us each look well to that part of the
public road that passes our farm and a
bome. Nothing will recommand one
for thrift, thoughtfulness, neatness,
public spiritedness more quickly than
attention paid to the roads passing by
>r through his land. He keeps the
road the proper width, his plows out of

to let off a slash of water from the high- u
tay. If every one of us desired good n
roads and had proper respect for these c
ublic highways it would only be a 'I
hort time bafore one could travel C
broad, walking or riding, and never ti
vet his heels nor his wheels. I
