The hope of Clarendon is, that Sum
ter and Williamsburg will both be add
ed to the dry column in August. The
fact of Clarendon not permitting the le
gal sale of liquor has caused thousands
of dollars from this county to go to Sum

financial drain, we would have our ad
joining counties go dry.
Unless our figures deceive us, there
is no need for the trustees of school dis- t
trict No. 9 to levy any additional tax for I
tne new b-nds, anL we hope these gen- i
tlemen will not raise the lev% any high- .
er, than it already is. The taxes in this 1
town now amounts to about three per
cent, and with a continual increase, it t
will paralyze every thing. Z
We are under the impression there is
a limit to the age when the public free

to provide a place for men and women

Hon. W. St. Julian Jervey, of the
Charleston Bar, was in Manning last
Friday on professional business with
Judge John S. Wilson. Mr. Jerrey was
for many years solicitor of the First
Circuit, and he enjoyed the reputation
of being one of the strongest prosecut
ing officers in the State. He was at the
head of the. engrossing department
while solicitor, and many of the lawvs
upon our Statute books are of his fram

to Manning, and we regret the weather

Joe Grant, a young negro employed 1
at Mr. F. C. Thomas's lumber mill at
Bloomville, who was shot in the upper
left arm and side on the 0th inst., had
his arm amputated at the shoulder joint
last Sunday. and has since been getting
along verf 'well with fair prospects of
recovery. An early amputation was not
deemed practicable by the attending
physicians, and later developments of
extensive gangrene rendered favorable
results extremely doubtful for a time.
One report as to the shooting is that
Charlev Green, who fired the gun, only
intended to shoot up in the air, and that
the wounding of Grant was entirely ac
cidental, while another report is that
Green intended to shoot another negro
but hit Grant by mistake.
The trustees of school district No. 9
on last Thursday sold to N. W. Harris1
& Co., of New York, .$19,000 of school1
bonds recently authorized by the voters1
of the district for 1.04,which is a premi-1
um of S855, the buyers paying all expen -1
ses. This in our opinion is a splendid
sale, and should be gratifying to the
peole of the district. A representa
tive of the bond buying company was
here, and went through the school
building, and he was so favorably im
pressed wvith the character and style of
the structure that when asked for his
best figures for the bonds, he said, he
came here expecting to buy the bonds
at 1.3i but he would give the full lim
it of 1.04j.
This gentleman is accustomed to in
specting properties that are bonded,I
and, when he inspected this, and was
moved to give more for the bonds than
he came here to give, it is time for
those of us who may be judges of the
construction of a fowl house to let up
with our criticisms.
There are some who are disposed
to make sport of what we said about
the Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio rail
road running through M1anning on its
way to the seacoast, but they need not
smile in doubt, for the reason that as
sure as the road goes to Charleston, its
direct line, according to our map, is
near or through Manning. The only
question is, will this great trunk line
go to Charleston? We think it will, be

At this season of the year. as a rule,the
mercantile business is a dull proposi

planting operations. and besides, it is
rather between seasons, but Hirsch

This was one of the most sensational
ases ever heard in i Clarendon court,
, case which aroused partisanship and
atense feeling. Both sides had their I
rarm advocates, but in the immediate
ommunity public sentiment was against
he Subletts from the start. We repro
uce from the Columbia Record, of last
'riday its announcement of the decis
:n, it being the first to publish the
ction of the court:
A decision was handed down in the
upreme court today on a Clarendon
ounty will case of unusual interest.
'he case is that of Helen Tindal, et
1., against the Rev. Richard A. Sub
.tt, a Baptist clerzyman, and his wife,
jaura A. Sublett. The con test was over
be possession of a plantation in Claren
on county, which, according to the evi
ence quoted in the opinion, Mr. Sub
,t.t induced his aged motber-in-law, 89 1
ears old, to deed to Mrs. Sublett for 1
7,500, payable after the mother-In-law's
eath, without interest, although the 1

00. The decision is against Mr. Sub
ntt, the finding of the lower court in
luding Mr. Sublett's removal as execn
)r and trustee.
A mong others the following questions
ut to the jury at the trial were ans- 1
rered "yes" in their verdict:
"Was Mrs. Sarah Tindal (the moth
r-in-law) so enfeebled by old age and 1
hysical infirmities that she did not
ave mental capacity sufficient to un-Is
erstand what she was doing at th eIc
ime of the execution of the said deed?' '
"Did the defendants exericise undue
afuence on Mrs. Sarah Tindal and did
ey thereby obtain the execution and I
elivery of said deed?'' 1
It appears from the language of the 1
ecision that Mr. Sublett removed to
~exas after marrying Miss Laura Tin- I
al, and afterward removed to Atlanta,
nd 'falling in his possession as a minis
er.' came back to Clarendon county to
yeb on the home place with his mother
a-law and her son, Ezra, to whom the
roperty was to go, under the will of
he'elder, Tiadal, at Mrs. Sarah Tin
al's death. A year later Mr. Sublett
ok charge and managed the place as I
he agent of Mrs Sarah Tindal." 1
"Soon after." the opinion says, "on
eount of these new and unpleasant re. 1
tions, Ezra Tindal's widow and her
bildren left the place," and then on in
estigation Mr. Sublett discovered that .
he place never did belong to Mr. Tin- I
al the elder, but was Mrs. Tindal's I
rom her father, Ezra Allen.C
In 1898 Mr. Sublett prevailed upon hisC
other-in-law, it is alleged, to make a 1
il dividing the place into three equal 1
arts, one-thiird to the children of Mary 1
tembert, another third to the children 1
f Ezra Tindal and the remaining third

recy as to this will was enjoyed by R. I
L. Sublett." Shortly afterward it is 1
urther alleged, he prevailed upon Mrs.t
Cindal to execute a lease to Mrs. Sub
ett for eight years at $100 a year. In
904 she made the deed of the place re- 1

We Are Ready to Sell.1
Mr. A. H. Breedin has qualified as
ispensary commissioner, to dispose of
~he stock of liouors in the local dispen
ary, which was closed last November
y a vote of the people. Under the Act
~he commissioner is authorized to sell
o other dispensaries without the for
nality of aavertised bids, upon such
erms and at such price as may be deem
yd best, and for his services he is to get
icommission of 3 per cent.
Letters have been sent out to the dis
Densaries, asking them to relieve us of
~hese goods, and our sister county,Sum
er, liberal to a fault, responds by offer
ng 50 cents on the dollar, conditioned
apon a reguage, or a regouge it makes
out little difference. The offer is ab
surd, but if 50 cents on the dollar is all
ive can get for the stock, it means a loss
;o the taxpayers of this county of $o,U00
3r more, and to make it up will take
>ne mill levy. The burden of this loss
toes not fall alone upon those who were
opposed to sane and reasonable legisla
lation to save the taxpayers this loss,
but is comes like the rain, upon the just
ad the unjust alike.
There is in our mind some doubt
mbout being able to dispose of the stock
at all, if it is not done soon, because the
next general purchase the county dis
pensaries make will be the last one be
fore the election in August, having that
in view, and the uncertainty of the re
sult they will not be disposed to load
themselves with a broken stock like
ours. In the mean time the expense of
rent and insurance goes merrily on. It
will be a source of gratification to us, if
Mr. Breedin can manage to convert this

Will Tillman Badger Smith out of Party?
(-'E. I. R. in Columbia Record.")
Sumter. March 8.-..Tf Senator E. D.
Smith is not more careful in his politi
cal utterances about the possible effects
upon the political conditions in the
Sou-.', likely to be brought about by
President Taft's anti-negro-office-hold
ing policy, Mr. Smith will find that
'Uncle Ben* Tillman will hound him

Senator John L. M:)Laurin for daring
to agree with the republican adminis
tration sometime." said one Democrat
tonight after reading a portion of Mr.
W. Sinkler Manning's interview with
Mr. Smith, published in tonight's
Tie remarks of Mr. Smith referred
to are as follows:
"If President Taft, said the new sen
ator from South Carolina, can carry
out the policy he declared in his in
augural address yesterday, he will not
only build up a strong Republican
party in the South, but in Senator
Smith's opinion, ha will do the :South
as a section, great good."
'With the negro question hanging
over us,' said Senator Smith, there was
nothing for us to do but to hang to
gether, all of us. It has bound the
South in certain grooves that would
ordinarily have been abandoned. and
has fastened her under the political
control of certain limited circles that
have not always been for the best good
of the South. If President Taft keeps
to his pledge he will make some
hanges in these things.'"
But could Senator Till man read Mr.
Smith out of the Democratic party,
reuresenting, as Mr. Smith does, the
progressive element of the young Dem
acrats of South Carolina, just as Mr.
raft represents in no small degree the
ounger element of the Repnblican
party in the North, without doing just
hat Mr. Taft would like to see done,
lisrupting the Democratic party in the
Ad "Solid South." That is just where
he issue hangs, and is fraught with
anger to the future solidity of the old
ime "186" Democracy of this state
which not a fiew young Democrats
bhink, like the lien law, has served Its
asefulness, that. is provided Mr. Taft
eally succeeds in carrying out his new

It is quite evident to those who know

The Democracy of the South might

South to get its share of ,lie dainties of

Take the popularity of Congressman
L F. Lever for instance, and yet notice
ne fact which his constit~uents will tell
you is his strongest point in serving his
listrict, "he is a worker for the mater
tal good of bis distrtct, an -l 'does things'
which benefit his constituents instead
f posing as a great statesman." Lever
is known to be personally very popular
with many influential Republicans like
Congressman Scott, chairman of thle
bouse committee on agr'iculture, and
with Secretary James Wilson of the de
partment of agriculture, r.nd other lead
ing influentia.l Republicans, he is a
"good mixer" so to speak, generally
gets what he goes after, and his district
has never turned down a federal build

But with Senator Tillmian's keen po
litical sagacity- no one who knows the
senior senator thinks that he will do
anything to cause a breach in the Dem
ocratic ranks of the Palmetto state. He
is as young in political tactics as the
youngest of them. He can adjust him
self to an emergency as easy as any
ounger senator at any ti me.
~The question as to whether President
Taft really wishes to break the Solid
South, and whether lie will do it, is sus
ceptible of close analysis. The fact that
a Republican president-elect went out
of hi way in rcnming down South and
remaining here to get in close touch
with bhe Southern people, and the fact
that his inaugural address proves that
he is well posted as to what the South
wants and needs, and the most impor
tant of all, his offcial acts so soon in his
administration, the report that he is go
ing to appoint a white Democrat as
Postmaster at Florence in particular,
looks very much like Mr. Taft would
feel that it was a magnificent achieve
ment to be known as the president who
was big enough and popular enough to
break the Solid South, and to unite the
North and South as these two sections
And it would be a big achievement
for any man. Some South Carolina Dem
ocrats say that Taft will do for the
South what President McKinley want
ed to do. Erery one knows how the
Southern people loved McKinley. Pres
ident Taft appears to have already se
cured the love and confdence of the
Southern people at least quicker, if not
to any greater extent, than William
McKinley did. Many Southern men are
heard to say that Mr. Taft will in their
opinion prove to be the greatest and
most popular president the country has
ever had, and particularly with South
-Southern people express themselves
so freely in regard to Mr. Taft, and
show their respect and admiration for
the man so openly that it looks like he
will be able to make inroads into the
Democracy of the Solid South, if he does
what Southern people think he wants to
do for the South.
So Senator Smith's views may be
nearer right than a great many people
think. And he may present the senti
ment of a great many more Southern
people than the average man thinks. So
reverting back to the first paragraph
Of this article, and the remarks of the
entleman who thinks that Senator
Tillman can easily hound out of t'e
Democracy any young senator or con
gressman of the Smith and Lever type,
because South Carolina congressmen
may see fit to leave the beaten track of
strict party line occasionally in order to
serve the best interest of their districts,
doesn't it look like it .vill pay Senator
Tillman to look around before he at
tempts to muzzle his colleagne, if Sena
tor Smith gets an occasional desire to
vote with the administration when he
thinks the administration is right? But
s before stated how many Democrats
think that Senator Tillman would try
the same tactics now with Smith that
he did with Senator John L. McLaurin?
While Senator Tillman is as popular
with South Carolinians as he ever was
and while he is-much more useful in the
senate than be was years ago. neverthe
less his constituents believe that he w.1l
be quick to see the hand writing on the
wall and will be careful to do nothing )
complicate political conditions which
bid fair to be brought about by the new
policy of President Taft in the South.
Time and conditions cause chan-es in
he political sentiments of people.
How can any person risk taking some
mnknown cough remedy when Foley's
oney and Tar costs them no more? It
is a safe remedy, contains no harmful
Irugs, and cures the most obstinate
toughs and colds. Why experiment with
our health? Insist upon having the
enuine Foley's Honey and Tar. W. E.

In our recent misfortune our friends
of Summerton and vicinity, and other
places, have been exceedingly kind. We
would like to express to each one per
sonally, or by letter, our heart-felt ap
preciation of their generous kindness
and tender sympathy, bnt that is impos
sible now. We wish to make acknow
edgement through this medium to themo
f our profound gratitude, which we can
nly hope partially to express through
ur future lives. Sincerely,
