Immigration in the South
It has been stated that the
purest Anglo-Saxon spoken in
America today, is to be found in
the South, and, to this we may
add that in the tenacity with
which it has clung to its tradi
tions and ideals, the South has
no parallel in any other section.
It is here that we find the strict
est observance of the Christian
Sabbath, and less antagonism to
the Church and the things that
tend to make up a peaceable and
Should the reason for this be
demanded, an answer would not
be hard to find: in fact, it could
be summed up in one word, Im
While a living stream of for
eigners has been flowing for
years into the North and West,
the South has remained practi
We have not been without our
problems, chief of whicn is the
negro, but as sure as time lasts
there is coming a more serious
one for the South to face.
Knowing that in the life of an
individual or nation there is no
such thing as standing still-he
must either advance or retro-;
grade, our own beloved South!
Carolina was the pioneer in this
movement to bring in immi
Irants into the South,and,should
we, in trying to inform ourselves
on the subject, read only the
secular news papers, we might
fold our hands, and with a feel -
ing of security hail the coming
of this new stream of life into
this staid body of ours;for it can
not well be reasonably denied
that immigration does tend to
promote the material develop
ment of a country. But is this
the chief end and aim to be
sought in rounding out the life
of a nation? Nay verily, the
two elements that should re
ceive the first consideration
seem. at a glance to be given
minor importance, and they are
the political and religious.
A residence of five years in
this country gives. a foreigner
the privilege to vote; and with
no knowledge of. our laws or
history, and a hatred of govern
ment and the ruling .class, can
we expect him to exercise his
franchise to the best interest of
the country? A large per cent.
of these people came from South
ern Europe and they have prov
en in the North to be the least
desirable of any class~and among
the adherents of Roman Cathol
icism. there are none more su
perstitious and devoid of truth
IThere is still-.another phase of
this question which affects the
South alone.- The negro is here
to stay. and hows tare the two
races to exist ithout either af -
filiating with, or antagonizing
each other? Having no race
prejudices or traditions to re
strain them,.the two may amal
gamate in a few generations. On
the ohrhand, if there is an-i
tagonism will it not lead to race
The picture here drawn has no
rosy hues; would that it could be
otherwise. but is it not best to
sound a note of alarm in time?
It behooves all Christians, not
the least of whom are the mem
bers of the Home Mission So
ciety to prepare themselves, for
now in the beginning of this
movement is the day of oppor
tunity. "It is easier to guide
the brook into the desired chan
nel than to restrain the rushing
torrent." In a small way, plans
may be laidl that may develop
as the needs increase. The wel
come which we extend to these
new neighbors of ours, may go
far towards winning them to the
side of right, and teaching them
to love the things that we love
and hold most sacred, till at last,
they may become "No more
stangers or foreigners, but fel
low citizens with the saints and
of the house hold of God."

Unpleasant Politica! Visions.
Editor The Mannimng Times:
In your issue of tile 14th inst.
you publish a communication by
the writer, also an editorial in
reference to the same.
The readers of THE MANNING
TIMES are cultured and intelli
gent we will leave both epistles
for them to read, andifor them,
themselves to sit in judgment on
The charge of trying to stir
up "factionalism" is unfounded
and we challenge the proof.
We have many personal as
well as many political friends
who have been known in the past
as anti-reformers and who have
on every occasion backed their
friendship and confidence by
their political support.
All this we ever have and ever
well appreciate and consequently
we can truthfully repudiate the
charge of trying to stir up fac
We are afraid, Mr. Editor, that
the article has caused you to
have many "unpleasant political
visions" quite recently, and that
you have seen a handwriting on
the wall, and that you have im
agined that the communication
in question is a political inter
pretation of the same.
We still occupy the same poli
tical position we did in 1890, we
still admire and confide in B. R.
Tillman, we still believe in the
dispensary as the best solution
of the whiskey question in South
Carolina, and will continue to so
believe till a better solution than
prohibition or high license looms
We still number among our
friends and political supporters
many sincere and consistent pro
hibitionists, and All this good
fortune we are extremely proud
Return, Mr. Editor, to your
old political ship and remember
the old ship is istill fastened to
her old moorings and that every
recreant son will be welcomed
back and forgiven on condition
that they promise never to be so
"Men are chary about bei-g
suspected of drinking "76" and
it is that brand which makes
them say such foolish things."
There is some truth in what
the editor says in "76" making
some men say "foolish things"
we will admit, yet the editor has
acted "foolish"every time he has
changed his politics, and that
has been so often, until today
his politics is like biblical
Joseph's coat of "many colors."

The Right Idea.
One would think the Laxative idea
in a cough syrup should have been ad
vanced long before it was. It seems
the only rational remedy for Coughs
and Colds would be to move the bowels
and clean the mucous membranes of
the throat and lungs at the same time.
Kennedy's Laxative Honey and Tar
does this. It is the Original Laxative
Couch Syrup, the best knowvn remedy
for Ooughs, colds, Croup. Whooping
