We are requested to announce that
the regular meeting of the county
farmers association will meet in the
court house next Saturday. This notice
should have been published last weekd,
but through an oversight the secretary
failed to send us the notice.
Everybody should turn out to see the
display of dress goods, laces and millh
nery at The Mutual Dry Goods store
this evening. These young men have
made elaborate preparations to show to
the people of this town and vicinity
what the very latest in fashions are.
The first gun of the county campaign
in this county comes froin Mr. L. L.
Wells who announces his candidacy for
the office of sheriff- Mr. Wells has
served the county in the office of school
commissioner, and as rotation in office
was a Reform principle he presents him
self for sheriff.
Openings appears to be an importaiit
part of the dry goods and millhnery
lines, and Mr. S. I. Till has gone _to
considerable expense to make a dis
play which he regards the most at
tractive he has ever yet made. His
store is next door to the Mutual, and
there is a friendly rivalry between the
two establishments. Both have ex
pert milliners, and each believe they
have the finest, and Till says he car
prove by the public this evening that
he is correct.
The Rogers-Grilley combination1 un
der the auspices of the local lyceumt
gave on last Monday evening at the In

Mr. Rogers is a harpiest of a very higlr
order, and Mr. Grilley is an excellen1
entertainer. His rendition of The last
of the Scot Guard was a magnificien1
piece of dramatic elocution. The au
dience was highly pleased and gren
hilarious when he sang The Colorec
Lochinvar which was not new to them
but as presented by Mr. Grille;. it was
very comical. His song about the mar
who went shopping in a departmen
store with his two months bride wai
Jenkinson's opening on Thursda:
evening, Friday and Saturday was:
grand affair. On Thursday evening th<
town turined out en masse and up to :
late hour his elegant and elaborate dis
play of good-, was inspected. The mani
attaction for the ladies was, of course
the millinery department, which i
orsided over by Miss Beulah William
f Georgia, assisted by Mrs. Beulal
Dinkins and Miss Mattie Felder. Th
Jenkinson store is without doubt one c
the handsomest in this section of th
State. and he and his assistants desery
much praise for the attractive displa
of goods. The window decoration wa
done by Mr. C. F. Jenkinson. and1
was a thiing of beauty. The entir'e ax
rangement was excellent and we ai
feel proud of Mr. Jenkinson's successi
giving to this sectioa such a magnit
n business establishment.
We had a call from a gentleman who
is deeply interested in the Pine Grove
school, one of the best in the county,
and he asked us to explain why it is
that his school received from the three
mill constitutional tax a little over one
half as much money this year as it got
the year before. He says in 1903 the
proportion for Pine Grove was $314.03
and for 1904 it is only 8183.?;. Not be
ing familiar with the school fund divis
ion we could not give the uecessary in
formation. However. Superintendent
Holladay, we have no doubt. will be
able to make a satisfactory explanation.

On last Thursday night the Hiresh
mann store, next door to the postoftice,
was a great attraction, and it only ver
ifies the value of legitimate competi
tion. A stream of callers were passing
in and out of Hirschmann's during the
whole evening and the favorable com
ments must have been gratifying to
Mr. Hirschmann and his wife, who
have labored hard to give their milli
nery department a high place in the
estimation of fashion seekers. This
department had in it some of the most
beautiful pattern hats at prices which
seemed to be popular and made for the
Hirschmanns a large number of orders.

There Was no Meeting-Will There Bef
In the last issue of THE TIMES, we
suggested that a mass meeting be held
in the court house on the 25th,_ to dis
cuss town affairs, and the advisability
of nominating a ticket for the election
to take place April 11th. Quite a num
ber expressed their approval of such a
meeting, but when the hour arrived
only about a dozen men showed up, and
of course such a small number could
not be any more representative than
the one, two or three men who have
already put forward tickets, hence that
meeting was abandoned.
The main object of the meeting was
to assemble the citizen taxpayers, dis
cuss the powers council will have under
the new charter, and obtain an expres
sion from those who would consent to
serve on council. There is one thing
certain, the people of Manning will
have no proper reason to complain
should a council enact ordinances, and
make contracts which are burdensome,
because,the disposition to talk privately
and not act boldly and openly is mani
festly disgusting. We have had men
to come to us and urge the calling of a
mass meeting that citizens might let
their ideas be known, and some of these
were so, not only conspicuously absent,
but upon investigation we found they
aided others in throwing cold water upon
the project. We have no care as to the
effect of our views, whether they jar
upon the feelings of this man or that;
nor do we care if we are regarded an
tagonistic of this or that man's politicaj
or financial interests, if we perform our
duty conscientiously then it is up to
thevoters to do theirs or suffer the
consequences. There will be an elec
tion on the 11th day of April fora
Mayor and six Aldermen: at this elec
tion no one has a legal right to vote
who has not been a resident of the
STATE TWO YEARS, THE COUNTY ONE
YEAR AND THE TOWN FOUR MONTHS,
except ministers and teachers whc
shall be entitled to vote after a resi
dence of six months in the State. W4
do not know whether or not the regis
tration officer has issued ::ertificates t<
men who are not qualified to vote, bu1
we take it, that no decent white mat
would attempt to vote if he is not legal
l qualified, and should managers per
mit illegal votes cast it might result it
an illegal election and cause confusior
whether or not there is opposition. I
is always safe to start right, but if cor
rupt practices are countenanced in th<
beginning it will establish a most bane
We feel it incumbent upon us to dlirec
attention to the new powers council wil
have, so that no intelligent voter cai
have ignorance as an excuse if hei
disappointed after he has voted. W,
propounded the following questions t,
those who intend to consent to be votes
for in the coming election:
1. Do you favor raising the tax levy
Under the new charter council ha
the power to raise the levy to 10 mills
2. Do you favor installing waterwork~
around 'the business portion of th
The object of this question wast
ascertain wvhether or not the candidat
would favor using the town's moneyt
build a standpipe and lay water-pipe
to protect the business portion an
leave the resident portion uinpr'otectec
Council would have the power to .
this, and by raising the tax to 10 mill
upon all of the property in towni
would raise enough money to build an
manansuch an unjust discriminatiot
It could be operated thusly: Two c
more persons could apply for a charte
from the State and organize a wate:
works company, obtain a franchise froi
the town, and then enter into a contrac
for a term of years to build a stan'. pip;
and lay waterpipes within a given are;
to be paid for out of the town's trea
u ry. To raise a sufficient sum to me4
the contract conditions, it would na
raly necessitate the tax levy to 1
rrised, and then all of the propert
ithtonmay be found paying tr
ute to a orporation who has made
ontract with the town as a busime
in vestment, and only a favored fe
a protected or benefited: we see 1
r eason to prevent a man who will sern
n coci to- co e utonly and bolt
ly and say whether or not be would vote
for such a measure.
3. Would you oppose installing water
works unless the same is installed to
protect the whole town?
This question may appear similar to
question 2. The difference is this. To
install waterworks for the whole town
would necessitate a bond issue, and un
der the general incorporation Act
council would be forced to submit the
ouestion of issuing bonds to the people
who would then have a voice, but.
where a limited area of the town is to be
protected. council can raise the means
by forcing a high tax without referring
it to the people, notwithstanding all the
property holders are taxed to put in the
waterworks for a few. A candidate's
position ought to be known.
4. Do you favor a license on trades,
professions or other avocations?
Voters ought to be informed as under
the old charter no such powers was
5. Do you favor granting franchises?
The man who consents to be a candi
date who will not express his views
upon this question does himself, and in
our opinion, the people an injustice.
Himself because, this is an important
matter, and not answering puts him in
in the light of being suspected of afraid
to speak out lest he might lose the votes
of those who are wanting franchises.
The people, because, if they vote for
him feeling that he will protect them
from monopolies, and he votes for them,
they will be disappointed as they will
have voted for one who misrepresents
them, and they would not have voted
for such an one, had he made known his
views, regardless of what they thought
of him personally.
6. Will you vote in couueil to submit
applications for franchises to a vote of
the freehold voters?
It does strike us there can be no
harm in a man who consents to be a
candidate for Mayor or Alderman to
answer this question Yes or No. and if
he prefers he might say if opposed to
submitting the question to a vote, that
he would vote in council to publish a
notice of an application for franchises
to give the property owners an oppor
tunity to show cause, by petition
or otherwise, why such a fran
chise should not be granted. Council
has the power to grant franchises AT
WILL and we cannot see where it would
be beneath the dignity of a candidate
to give a public expression, especially
when it is known that once a franchise
is granted no future council can take it
7."Would you oppose in council en
tering into a contract with any individ
ual, firm or corporation to build a stand
pipe. and lay pipes for the protection
of any one particular section of the
town, that would have to be paid for
out of the town's treasury?
We take it, unless a man, who per
mits his name used as a candidate gives
a public expression, he means by his
silence to be uncommitted, and if he
thinks he ought to be voted for as an
uncommitted candidate, he ought to
come out boldly and say "I will repre
sent my own views in council regard
less of the people, and if in my jpdg
ment a little "cinch" will be of personal
profit, or will profit a friend of mine,
I will vote for it even if it burdens
those who honored me with their confi
dence." It was Vanderbilt, we believe,
who said "The people be damned," but
that was after he got the people where
they could not help themselves.
To our surprise we learned that some
members of the present council took of
fense because we propounded the fol
lowing question: "Do these men expect
to sneak into council without showing
their hands?" Only one member men
tioned the matter to us, and he seemed
to think it a reflection upon the mem
bers of the present council. How such
a construction could be made, our
knowledge of English will not enlight
en us. We propounded that question
then, and again now. What has the
present council got to do with the in
coriing councily The present council
is nothing more nor less than village
trustees, over a cross road government;
the incoming council can be made a
oovernment over a live young city
composed of elements who will like
to build and make at the expense
o others, even though they share
in the expense, if the profits are
principally theirs. To explain: If
we had the power to tax the people of
Manning for a matter which enhances
our own property we could afford to
pay the additional tax because, our
neighbors who probably _will not be
benefited are forced contributors; put
waterworks in a limited area may re
duce insurance rates, does the property
owner who is beyond the waterworks
area have any benetit in the shape of
cheaper insurance, or Bre protection.
We can assure those members of the
present council, and in fact, any live
candidate for the incoming council, and
for that matter, the clam-like candidate
too, when we propounded the question:
"Do these men expect to sneak into
council without showing their bands?"
we assumed, it was understood that it
had no individual reference, but merely
an expresion to direct attention to the
importance of requiring candidates to
make known their views so that voters
can with a degree of intelligence vote.
There are some men spoken of whom
we would be glad to vote for, because
they have our contidence, and are per
sonal friends, but if they would vote
for measures in council, matters not
how honest they are, which we re
gard detrimental to the town's future
interests, we would vote against them,
and vote for some other man whom we
have less regard for personally, whose
views wve approved.
It is no reflection upon any man's in
tegrity nor can it lower his dignity to
ome out boldly and announce his views,
especially under present circumstances,
a nd when candidates- refuse to make
known their views, it is simply forcing
-us to vote blindly, a condition which
s hould not exist, because, it leaves op
portunity for men to be elected whc
ould not be, did they "show their
h ands." This is what is meant, by
-'sneaking into council" in a political
s ense. A number of tickets have been
ipublished, what authority there is
f or the tickets we know not,
n or do we know whether or
not the names suggested represent
- the wishes of the people who will be
applicants for special privileges,or who
t have an investment in view, in which
1 they would like the assistance of the
i tow~n's treasn~ry. We know nothing
S about itexcept that they were not nom
3 inated at a public meeting where the
) people who will be called upon to pay
1 the piper, could have an opportumity of
ascertaining their views. The tickets
mva contain a majority, whose views
5 are like our own, and yet they might
h ave been shrewdly selected to catch
s votes, at the same time preserving
e majority whose views a majority of the
taxpaers would oppose did they le1
0 them be known. We have nothing tc
e do with the personnel1 of those tickets or
0 any other ticket; it is not a questicn o
5 men with us, it is solely a question o
d measures. Were it a question of men
L. the character of the men on the
o tickets named would suit us. There

Don't Stifle Coughs.
Shun cough mixtures containing narcotics. At
their best, such remedies are worthless; at their
worst, they are positively dangerous. They
deaden the delicate nerves so that the irritation I
and engorged condition of the air passages can no
N longer be felt. You think you are well. But
when the nerves awaken the cough returns and
the tender membranes of the throat and lungs are
N weaker than ever. A worthy cough remedy
should do just what
N Rhamne's Cough Cure
does do. It equalizes the circulation and relieves
congestion. It soothes the irritated surfaces and
N stimulates the secretions. It cures rightly and
permanently, leaving the throat and lungs in as
good condition as before the cough began. Best
for children because harmless-best for any one
because it always cures. When you have a cough, 2
you want a sure cure that is safe. You can't get
a better or safer one than ours.
It is Guaranteed.
Price, 25 cents.
A recent cold can usually be cured in twenty
four hours with RHAME'S Cold Cure.

It is worth a good deal to rid yourself of the
danger and discomfort in so short a time.

The Winter's Havoc.
Many who start the winter season well and
strong, in spring find themselves suffering from
the efects of severe coughs and colds, impaired
nutrition or other physical disturba'nces. The
low spirits, sleepless nights and restless days are
nature's signals of distress. The best answer you
H can give her is to take
Our Emulsion of Cod Liver Oil.
It is the best remedy for almost any impover
ished condition of flesh or blood. When appetite
N fails it restores it. When assimilation is weak it
strengthens it. When the blood is impoverished
it enriches it. When you are thin it brings the
plumpness of health. If you need such a remedy,
this one will suit you.
