A NEW RICHMOND.
The 'atest in political circles comes
from 0. B. Martin, State superinten
dent of education in the nature of an
announement that he is a candidate for
the United States Senate. TQ his
announement he makes several lunges
at the present incumbent, Senator Lat
imer, and which we zonstrue as an
index to what will follow in the cam
paigu. He charges the junior Senator
with being a political fakir, a maker
of U)romises that were never fultilled.
Ho intimates that Latimer has used
his omicial position to get rich, by hint
ing at his vast Mlexican possessions,
and altogether 'Martin proposes to show
that Latimer is in public life for the
money he can get out of it. But Mr.
Martin thirsts not alone for the gore
of Senator Latimer, he wants a try-out
with the present governor whom he
says has "manifested symtoms of Sena
torial aspirations," but he does not
"know whether he will run or not."
He charges Governor Ansel with
"having injected politics into the
educational department,'"and then says
"If -he decides to enter the race for the
United States Sennte, I shall meet him
It is altogether to soon to conjecture
as to who will be Senator Latimer's
successor, there is no telling yet who
.vill enter the race, but notwithstand
ing the question frequently asked, "who
is South Carolina's other Senator?" we
do not hesitate to say that Martin's irra
tional onslaught will not have a ten
dency to weaken Latimer's chances
to succeed himself.
Governor Ansel has not announced
himself a candidate for the Senate, and
we sincerely hope he will not, as in our
judgment he should succeed himself as
Governor, but in the event that the
gover:or should decide to run for the
Senate. Mr. Martin's cheap defi
amou-ts to naught. We look upon Mr.
Martin's conduct with regret. He has
been Lonored by the people, and now
on the eve of his retirement from office,
he is in bad temper like a spoiled
child when the parent thinks it has,
had cuiough candy. Mr. Martin need
not think that his outbursts of indigna
tion because Governor Ansel did not
consult~ with him regarding an appoint
ment meets with popular approval, it
does not. The ped:e know the ap-I
pointing power lays with the Governor
alone, and they rather admire him for
his independence, especially, when it1
is felt all over the country there is
somnething not altogether right with
the State board of education. Al' ,er
this State, in every town and hamlet
people are complaining of the manner
of the school book adoption, and when
the governor :declined to appoint on
the board some favorite of the State
superintendent, he no doubt had good
reasons for it, any way the people be
lieve he is trying to protect their in
We have no idea that Mr. Martin
stands a ghost of a show for the United
States Senate, or any other office for
that tmatter. He has with his own bad
temper dug his political grave. He is
a lively stump speaker and when the
campaign opens we imagine he will get
lots of hurrahs, but when the votes are
counted his friends will learn their
favorite went to sleep at tbe post. If
the opposition to Latimer gets no
stronger than the present announce
ments he will win his own succession
in a walk.
-The money centers recently shaken
up by the wringing of: water out of the
stocks, are publishing to the world,
that they are slightly dis~gured but
still in the ring. They all say confi
dence has been restored. and yet monley
is as tight as wax.
If the editor of the Columbia State,
and Senator Latimer continue their
' letter writing about irirnigration, they
will each convince t.ae public that
both of them are agreed, both favor
immigrants from northern Europe, and
both are opposed to immigrants from
southern Europe, and that each of
them are standing by the law of this
- State creating the bureau of immi
-What ground there is for the report
that Governor Ansel will be a candidate
for the U. S. senate, other than the
statement alleged to have come from
General J. C. Boyd while in Washing
ton recently, we do not know, but
while we recognize the fact that Gov.
Ansel is a free American citizen and
can do as he pleases about which office,
if an':. he will run for, yet we are dis
inclined to believe that he will be a
candi late for any other office than that
of C. vernor. We think he is some

cause it is under his administration

*with Senator Latimer, we can frankly
say that there are many who supported
Ansel for governor and would do so a
gain for the same offi-e. who will not
vote for him for the U. S. senate: not
that Latimer is their choice but they
would regard Ansel as having deserted
the L. cal Option cause while that pr~in

Editor The Manning Times:
Being put out of business for several
weeks subsequent to court week, this
correspondent has been remiss latterly
in furnishing the news from this sec
A\nd now, begging your pardon, for
I would remember that you wanted
news rather than opinions, i have found
a good subject for consideration. It is
found in the last issuc of Ti MAN
NIM; Ti.%1ws and it is about a new
colrt house and better roads. - This is
an old subject, but one that will last
just as long as the old court house and
the bad roads. So to get rid of one
means the riddance of the other.
There is no doubt about it. that we
are away behind in both particulars.
It needs only a superticial examina
tion to show that our court house is
very inadequate in its capacity and
fittings. It is a veritable tire trap.
A glance into some of the oflices reveal
records of years open in Pigeon holes.
piled under tables, in wooden cases etc.
Some of these are necessarily valuable,
some could not replaced at any cost and
all readv as tinder to burn any minute.
The clerk's office is the only one at all
fitted against fire, and it is now crowd
ed to its capacity. This office alone
needs three times the room it now has.
Some of the others need more room,
and all need fire proof protection for
the papers etc., of value. This should
be so apparent to all so as to make
the issue one simple of solution. As to
the upper story, while the seating cap
acity is large enough, the usual ap
pearance and condition is not inviting
to a decent audience. I have no doubt
that just as much justice can be dealt
out in that court room as in a more
luxurious one, the same for that matter
could be done in yard beneath the
beautiful oaks. It is a fact, one that
is worth while considering that when
we are surrounded by squalid, untidy
quacters, noxious air, etc., that the
best results of heart and mind are not
attainable. But with pure air, neat
and clean quarters. where good taste
and some culture has left its impress
on the surroundings one naturally feels
uplifted and feels more respect
for himself, his cause. and sees
a sharper line of demarkation between
what is ignoble, criminal, and what is
honest and true. We do not say to
build a palace, a good plain structure
is within our reach, and should be seri
ously considered. There should not be
a single man who has any affair on re
cord in that building, but who would be
willing to submit to a mere bagatelle
of tax to make it secure.
We of other county towns should have
no objection to this use of public money
Manning is our County Seat, it is a beau
tiful town, centerally located and all
should feel a just pride in it. Of
course we here at Summerton expect
to see our town the County Metropolis
but this does not mean that we must
be its capital, witness Charleston, New
Taking it for granted that the new
court house is assured, next we come
to the public roads. These might be
properly put, first for of prime import
ance to a commonwealth is its system
of roads. Nearly all the main roads of
this County were built with a view of
getting across the Santee to Charleston,
there is a superfluity of roads at some
points leading to the Ferrys.
This system should be changed some
what and more cross county roads lead
ing to Manning and other centres be
As to the character of the roads we
have as much dirt and clay as Sumter,
but look how they are getting along
with the roads up in that County.
There is nothing that indicates the
thrift and spirit oi a community more
than its public roads, nothing receives
more comment from strangers, people
traveling through a section are attrac
ted by the roads as much or more than
other' features, with better rcads the
eoole of a community get clcser to
ketier I wonder how many people stop
long enough to think how little they
know of the township in which they
live. I wonder if all of us have people in
three miles who are comparative stran
gers,but with better roads we would see
each other oftener we would ha.ve less
distances of each other and pull;togeth
er better in matters of public import,
at the same. time have more interest in
each others welfare and be better
friends and neighbors. B

and until the last few years was supposed to be
incurable. For a great many years doctors pro.
nounced it a local disease. and prescribed local
remedies. and by constantly failing to cure with
local treatment. pronounced it incuralie. Science
has proven catarrh to be a constitutional dis
ease, and therefore requires constitutional treat
ment. Hals Catarrh Cure, manufactured by

The Affinity Fad--A Mother's Horrible Ex
Cincinnati, Nov. 6.-John M. Flynn,
a traveling salesman of Spartanburg,
S. C., and Mrs. Susie W. Greenwald of
the same place, were married here
tonight. The couple declined to ex
lain the desire for secrecy of their
iarriage. The woman is said to have
been divorced recently.
N rs. Susie W. Greenwald, who is r-e
orted to have been married iu Cin
ennati last night, is the wife of Mr.
David Greenwald, head of one of Spar
tanburg's largest clothing establish
Mr. John M. Flynn is one of the best
known traveling men in Srartanburg.
Mrs. Greenwald, who~ i a very hand
some woman, left Spartanburg for New
York about three months ago, accom
panied by her daughter. It was rum
ored at the time that Mrs. Green wald
was leaving with the vie-v of obtain
ing a separation from her husband.
Since that time, however, nothing has
been heard of Mrs. Greenwald until
tonight, when the announement of her
marriage to Mr. Flynn was received
Mrs. Greenwald was a Miss Webber
before her marriage to Mir. Greenwald.
SHE IS A BIGAMIST.
Cincinnati,~Nov. 8.-According to
lawyers here Mrs. Susie W. Greenwald
of Spartanburg, S. C., who was married
here Wednesday night to John M.
Flynn, a traveling man, also of Spar
tanburg, is believed to be liable to the
charge of bigamy if her first husband
chooses to press the case Dispatches
from South Carolina state that
Mrs. Greenwald left that state less
than three months ago for New Yor-k,
ostensibly to begin a divorce. Mr.
Fynn says that his present wife has~
been in Dakota since leaving South
Carolina and that she secured a divorce
there. but local lawyers declare that if
she did secure a divorce it will not be
valid, because she had not been away
from South Carolina long enough to
establish a legal residence even in
South Dakota, where the -divorce laws
are very lax.
Mrs.'Greenwald and Mr. Flynn came
to Cincinnatti by different routes.
