THE LIEN LAW.
The principal -public question in
South i/arolina today, is the repeal of
the licn law. it will come before the
general assembly in a little while, and
there be threshed over thoroughI.It is
our juigment that the lien law will be
repealed at the coming session, but
whether it should be we are in doubt,
and will vet have to be convinced that
it is for the country's best interest; of
one thing we are convinced, and that
is, the prevailing idea that the repeal
of the lien law will force better labor
conditions, is a mistake, we do not be
lieve anything of the kind, but on the
contrary we believe it will force up the
price of wages to where the ordinary
farmer will not be able to secure labor
at all. We also believe the repeal of
the lien law, will ultimately prove a
buraei to the land owner. causing his
lands to lay idle for the lack of tenants,
or whore he secures tenants, bis bands
will be mortgaged to secure supplies
for those tenants. We believe further
the repeal of the lien law without giv
ing a least two years time, will bank
rupt a large percentage of merchants
and farmers who have been doing an
extensive advancing business.
The writer will have a vote on this
quest-.n. and of course, in a large
measure he must exercise his own
judgna-nt, but in a matter of this kind,
he rea:izes that he represents the peo
ple an., their wishes he respects, there
fore he gives his individual views in
advan'e of the assembling of the legis
lature that his constituents may know
what thinks along this line, and if they
disag.-'e with him, it is up to them
to m sse their wishes known that
he mi' not misrepresent them by his
vote. Therefore it is .urged that on
Mond. . December 2nd, a representa
tive a-.endance be at the public mass
meeti:g called for the purpose of dis
cussir this and other questions.
Wh n we speak of a representative
. attenance, we do not mean men who
just happen at the meeting, but men
who e- me from different sections for,
the p'1pose of attending and letting it
be kr-wn the sentiment in their
respe- lye communities.
ARE WE DEMOCRATS OR PROHIBI
The orohibition wave continues go
ing on. and unless some change comes
it would1 not surprise us in the least to
wake up and find the mnachinery of the
Demo tratic party of the solid south de
lit-eredi over to the National prohibition
party. Will South Carolina join the
prohibition column before the next
general primary? Is a question that is
giving many public thinkers deep con
cern. WVe cannot see how in good faith
the comuinst session of the legislature
can enact a prohibition law. The issue
of last year was local option, and it
won: to convert it now into prohibition
without consulting the voters would not
in jour judgment be the proper thing
The present administration is com
mitted to local option, there is no get
ting away from that proposition, and
unless the people in the various coun
ties by an actual ballot reverse them
selves, local oution should stand and let
the question be argued on the hustings
next sammer before the people. If by
a majority vote prohibition is carried
it will be enacted into lawv, and all good
citizens whether it meets with their ap
proval or not will submit and aid in its
enforcement, but if the legislature
should enact a prohibition law, when it
is committed to local option, the local
optionists will feel they have been bun
coed, and they will stand aside, leaving
the enforcement of the law entirely
with the prohibitionists, a condition
which ought not exist, but such will'
be the result if the prohibitiordists
tlushed with success run rough shod
over those who favor temperance re
form but differ somewhat as to the
best means of accomplishing the desired
ROOSEVELT NOT A CANDIDATE.
The Democratic press would have
President Roosevelt to announce every
mnorning that he will not be a candinate
for re-election, and nothing short of
such f:equent declarations will satisfy
them. The president on the night of
his laa election, declared he would
not sta.-d for re-election and has never
since i dicated a change of mind. True,
he is ie most popular man with the
masses~ in the United States, and we
have o > doubt if he did change his
mind :'ad yield to the wishes of his par
ty. he . auld get the nomination without
a stru:gle. but wve doubt exceedingly if
he cotu d1 be elected. President Roose-,
velt w !, when his pr-esent term expi
res. se~ ved two ter-ms. and the Ameri
can pX ple have always been opposed to
any ir have the presidency for three
consee -tive terms. President Grant
was th idol of his party but they re
fusedt give him the third nomination:
times :cave changed however,eonditions
are alh zgether diuTer-ent now from what
theyv were in Grant's time, and it is vos
sible f..r the ltepublican party to force
the nom.ination upon Theodor~e Roose

our o -inion the pr-esident has had
enougi 'f the presiden':y. and he will as

The State authorities have reached
the conclusion that a law not backed
by pubhic sentiment cannot be enforced
properly, and therefore they have de
cided to ask the Legislature to repeal
the income tax law. If the State
authorities would wake up to the
idea that no law without a consenting
public can be properly enforced, a dif
ferent condition would exist in several
counties of this State today, and the
authorities would'not now be occupy
ing the position of doing that which
it denounced in others-resorting to
"government by injunction" to en
force a minor law.

It is stated that the National Farmers
Union claim to have in the various
warehouses at this time about 8,000,000
bales of cotton, and that it can hold
this cotton until January 1st without
distress to the farmers. We fear the
Farmers Union is making a claim
which will not bear the light of inves
tigation. If an organization had
8000000 bales of cotton withdrawn
from market the price would be double
.hat it is now. The demand would
run rough shod over the speculators
and create .the price. The great trouble
has always been with farmers organi
zations that they put forward a loud
mouthed leadership which mistake
bluffing for business.

The Charleston gala week is over, and
nobody was trampled to death "by the
seething mass of humanity" that did
not throng the streets night nor day
during the festivities. It was a great
show, and should have been because it
was the same as last year~and the year
before, and in fact for seyeral years
past. The constant practice of having
the same thing year after year, gives
it a delightful sameness, and too, it
saves the printing of programs. The
only thing about Charleston's gala
week that attracted general attention,
was the great trades display, the peo
ple went into ecstacies over the num
ber of unwashed grocery, bread and
milk wagons in the parade. It was a

Notwithstanding the extremely wet
weather the past week the farmers
have between showers succeeded in
sowing their oats and a number of them
-re now amusing themselves in pursuit
of the feastive partridge while waiting
for the price of cotton to climb to 15e.
A great many of us have our cotton
stowed away and are determined to
"stand pat" despite the financial strin
gency until a better price is offered.
The new Salem and Manning road
being built up of solid clay becomes
very slippery after a rain which causes
us to wonder if it would be possible for
our road supervisor to have the track

herculean push to make our three day
banquetting a howling success.
We are to have various attractions,
such as horse races, shooting, side
sihows and concerts. A good many bu

merchandise which will be sold at auc

Because Christ commanded them
when he said: Ye shall be witnesses
unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all
Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the
uttermost part of the earth.
Because we are directly concerned in
home affairs. The weal or woe your
country makes for righteousness or
iniquity, and this shapes the destiny of
our children. The early churches of
Asia Minor, and Africa fell away from
Christ and it is possible for the United
States to revert to barbarism unless a
holy zeal for the salvation of every cit
izen moves our hearts.
Because here in the South as every
where-else, the need which Christ in
tends this command to meet is very
great. There are some of the conditions
among us which Christ's brethern
must meet or be found disloyal to their
Lord. A rapid increase of wealth, cre
ating new class lines, forming a large
and increasingly (dependent class of
wage earners in the cities. These peo
ple are cut off by hours of work, place
of residence. lack of intercourse and
sympathy, from the growing "leisure
class" their church and their relhgion.
The rift is not very deep, but it is there
and it is crowing. Nothing can bridge
it but the love of God exp~ressed in hu
man lives and service,the rapid influx
of foreigners brings a new responsibili
ty. Italians, Cubans, Hungarians, Bo
hemians, for the most part from the
poorest, most ignorant classes, are
found by the thousands in Texas, West
Virginia, Louisiana, Florida and else
where. With the completion of the
Panama Canal, tens of thousands will
be drawn thither, and we are to be
confronted with peoplebringing debased
forms of religion, if any at all, and ig
norance and need; what has the Master
to say to these 'people through us?
Eight million negroes, God's special
trust to us, an inheritance from our
fathers and mothers, who raised these
people by the help of God, from a state
of savagery to the level whereon they
to-day and in Christ's name ask that we
do our part as our fathers did theirs.
Our mountain people, of as good
blood as any in the world, await the
broadening of their opportunities, that
culture of mind and heart which will
open their way to a high and noble ser
vice of the King of whom many of them
have but dimly heard. We need home
missions for our own souls sake, send

Christ went to those within reach of
our own feet, and hands, and voice,
that we find our Lord a present Friend
and companion and drink deeper of the
love that passes knowledge, he is serv

if we will join Him in this service, we
shall find Him there, and every hovel
will seem unto us His palace. Amen.

Editor The Manning Times:
I saw in your last week's paper where
one of your correspondents said sone
thing about Capt. Skinner's grave.
About four years ago I decided to take
up a subscription and raise $50 but met
with very poor encouragement and
only got $19.00, $9.00 in cash and since
that time R. F. Jeukinson of Pinewood,
H. J. McLeod of Paxville and Anthony
White of Sumter all passed away all
three old comrades who agreed to pay
me $1.00 each. So that only leaves
$7.00 on subscription, which I hope to
zollect soon, and put a $16.00 tomb the
his grave. Richard M. Skinner was
captain of company H. 5th, S. C. cav
alry Butler's brigade, he was an up
right Christian man good commander
and brave soldier and fell on the battle
field in Virginia in 1864.
