TOTHER IS WHICH.
The political conditions are
very peculiar, and it is a prob
lem to learn the difference be
tween the two great parties; the
party in power under the
Roosevelt administration,. has.
been, and is continued to be
called the mother of trusts, mo
nopolies and frenzied financier
yet, this administration seems to
have put the trusts on the run
from the process servers. The
great Standard Oil Trust has
been haled before the courts,
and fined severely; great rail
road systems have felt the heavy
hand of the law. Wall street
has been thrown into spasms by
the government's efforts to ex
pose and punish rascality. Sui
cide and the penitentary has
claimed wrong-doers. The pres
ent panic is charged up to the
Republicans by the Democrats,
and, at the same time, the accus
ing party confesses the cause
underlying present conditions is
rascally conduct on the part of
the high financiers, and these in
dividuals are connected with
both parties. It is admitted,
universally, that president
Roosevelt has brought down
upon himself the ire of Wall
street, and no stone would be left
unturned to defeat him had he
stood for re-election; of all men,
Roosevelt would not have been
supported by the money-sharks,
but now, that he has given -a
positive assurance that he will
not be a candidate, these Wall
street magnates are at sea, they
cannot support Bryan for he
liked Roosevelt, is honest, and,
his oolices are so near like
Roosevelt's that very little con
scaion they can look for there,
Hughes of New York is another
one of those independent char
acters that dishonest men
fear, therefore Foraker of
Ohio, is the only hope, and
he will get their support in the
hope of a compromise where
by .the government will be
called off, and they be allowed
to continue in their swindling
game of finance.
The Democratic party will get
no support from the big financiers
because, it cannot afford to give
them a promise, and the fact of
Wall street giving a Democratic
candidate support would at once
be circumstantial evidence, of a
compact which the masses will
.never stand for. The people
realize the cause of present con
ditions to be no fault of the gov
ernment, but on the contrary
had it not been for the govern
ment there is no telling what
havoc these manufacturers of
wealth by false pretenses. would
have wrought, as it is, the
trouble is but temporary, things
hereafter will settle upon a solid
business basis, and at matters
not which party gets control .of
the government. a repetition of
the present condition can never
Hon. Cole L. Blease, of New
berry, has given out that he pro
poses to introduce at the coining
session of the General Assembly
a bill to declare the State under
Prohibition, with a provision to
permit counties to vote a license
system, 'which if he succeeds,
would simply put one or two
counties in the State under a
license system-Charleston, and
Georgetown, with possibly Rich
land and iBeaufort. -Senator
Blease was the leader of the
State Dispensary forces last ses
sion, and he made a very able
fight for his cause, but now that
the General Assembly is com
mitted to the Carey-Cothran Act
we had hoped that al men as
the Senator from Newberry
would be willing to let well en
ough alone until the matter can
be put before the people next
summer for their arbitration. In
our judgment the cause of temn
perance will not be advanced by
changing the State's present
policy. Under the present law
those counties unwilling to .sell
liquor, can be rid of it, therefore
we cannot see any need of dis
turbing the present status at
this session. Let the question
go to the people, and if they
-want State Prohibition, a gen
eral assembly will be chosen to
carrx- out their wishes, but' if
this legislature makes any -rdi
cal change it will only create
confusion and make opportunity
for a very corrupting campaign
next summer. In the mean time
let Colonel Blease and his friends
aid in securing legislation which
will investigate the conduct of
the State dispensary from its
birth to its death, and if it is a
fact that any man or set of men
are guilty of wrongdoing a way
shouH be found to make them
disgourge. It will help South
Carolina's finances very much if
several hundred thousand dol
lars can be turned into the treas
ample for the future if those
guilty of theft can be put in
stripes; the more exalted their
position, the greater will be the
effect upon civic virtue.
CONSTRUCt DO NOT OBSTRUCT.
Senator Tillman hopped on to
the administration Monday with
one of his characteristic spee
ches. He plunged his pitchfork
deep into the bowels of the fi
nancial department to dig up and
expose the methods of the ad
ministration in flying to.the re
lief of Wall street when the fi
nancial flurry began, the Senator
admits he has given no study to
finance, his own labors in that
direction having been confined
to my own expenses," and he
might had added that it was un
necessary to worry about his
own expenses until the Hepburn
rate bill became a law. There
is not enough of the senator's
speech reported in the press dis
patches to judge of its merits,
but the inquiry he is demanding
should be made, unless the agi
tation is likely to intensify the
present lack of contidence which
is gradually being restored, we
agree with the senator's view
that handcuffs should be put on
the wrists of these frenzied fi
nanciers, but such characters are
usually shrewd enough to dodge
prisons walls; they manage to
keep their secrets until opportu
nity comes along to bury them
with the dead.
The senator ridicules the issu
ance of clearing house certifi
cates, and there is much in his
contention, these issues have no
doubt given considerable relief,
but in our judgment the govern
ment alone should have the right
to issue them. The calling at
tention to the management of
the financial branch of the gov
ernment may result in good and
we hope South Carolina's senior
senator will empty his pockets
of the rocks he has been boast
ing of, and go to work to con
struct a firm financial system.

The cotton price prospect is
becoming brighter, as is eviden
ced by the steadiness of the cot

close touch with the situation
are convinced that as soon as
confidence is fully restored and
the hoardings of the stampeded
money savers is returned to the
banks, cotton will reach a price
beyond the expectations of those
who have been standing out for
a high price. The money scare
has effected all of the manufac
turing industries to the extent;
that many of them have closed
down and their laborers are out
of employment, others are run

soon as matters reach a normal

look forward to, unless dema

Cotton Se,& -Meal.
Director R. J. Redding of the 4eorgia.
Exftriment Station, says:
"Cotton Seed Meal is a cheaper and more 'effective ferti
+ lizer than cotton seed."
"A farmer should never use cotton seed directly as a ferti
lizer when he may exchangeit for a fair equivalent of meal."
"According to chemical analysis of each, 886 pounds of cot
ton seed meal are abou't the equivalent in content of plant food,
to 2000 pounds of cotton seed. -But owing to tlie superior r '
+ cbanical condition of the meal and its consequently greateri7or C
more promt availbility, it is safe to assume that
800 pounds of meal are-thefull equiva
lent to one ton of see.4
+ Therefore, whatever excess above. 800 ,pounds of meal the
farmer can get in exchange for a ton of seed, or by selling. the
seed and buying the meal, lets the cost of -hauling or fiight Z
