by the preachers and the womei
in a belief to thecontrary, there

or arguments against their meth

The majority in this Stat<
seems determined to try the ex

miserable failure to enforce th(
law in the cities, and as the ma

may as well 'surrender and le

There is one thing, however
which gives room to protes
against the importation of speak

of politics on this State. We ar
convinced that it will not b(

TO BE DISCIPLINED.
Congressman Clark, of Flor
ida, has brought ansavalanche 0:
criticism upon himself for taking
an independent stand upon th<
tariff. and his repudiation o.
Bryan as the Democratic leader.
Clark had the frankness to tel
Congress, if his local interests
were looked after he would sup
port the measure regardless o:
the wishes of the Democrati<
caucus, and because of his defi
-ance of caucus rule things bav
been made very warm for th~
The Florida legislature take~
a hand in the resentment of Mr
Clark's repudiation of Bryan
and has invited that distinguish
ed candidate to address them;
which is intended as a repudia
tion of Clark's utterances.
Clark's independence of though1
and speech may cause him tc
"'loose his grip" upon his con
gressional district, and cause
him to be classed with the "ihas
beens" after the next election
bat he has only given voice tc
what many Democrats think.
There is not a Southern State
that would for a moment con
sider W. J. Bryan for the part5
leadership again. He has beer
tried three times, and three
times he has been defeated. The
defeat of the party was not due
to the bad leadership of Bryan,
-but solely due to the lack of con.
tidence in the Democratic party
with the masses: any other Demn
ocr-at, probably would have
shared the same fate as Bryan,
but all the same, the country
has three times said they will
not have Bryan. and it -would
indeed be political suicide tc
again place the leadership w'ti

The income tax law was not
settled by the Supreme Court as
we supposed, the only decision
was by Judge Watts in the cir
cuit court, but now it comes up
in the Alderman case before the
Supreme Court. and the decision
will be awaited with anxiety. If.
however, if it is decided the law
is valid, the confusion in ascer
taining "what is an income" still
exists. Tpher~e are very few peo
ple who are in position to make
a sworn statement in this matter
and we think the Comptroller

Senator TilIman was among I
the callers at the white house'!
yesterday. It is his tirst visit I
there since he was insulted by I
President Roosevelt. The sena
tor has a very high regard for
P"resident Taft. and frequently
visited him while that gentleman
was Secretary of war. It is grat
ifving to iiis constituents that the I
senator is once again in touch i
with the head of the nation.
Four prominent cattlemen at
Ada., Aklahoima. were taken from
the city jail last Monday by a
mob of citizens and lynched. The
victims are charged with con
plicity in the murder of former
United States Marshall Bobbett
last February, who had been
shot from ambush. The mob is
said to have organized in the
commercial club rooms, and
marched on the jail ac Z o'clock
in the morning.
On the 17th of August next i
not less than 15 out o -1 coun
ties will vote prohibition. Among
the number sure to go dry by a
vote of over two to one are S am
ter and Williamsburg. Every
man who has friends in either of
the two counties named should
endeavor to get them to vote
prohibition. The people of this
county are very much interested
in the action of Sumter and
Williamsburg,. and it behooves
them to help stop the drain now
upon Clarendon. if the adjoin
ing counties do go dry most of
the money from this county now
going to them will stay where it
naturally belongs-at home.
Senator Tillman has gone back
to Washington, after a long rest
at his home. The Senator says
he weighs more now than ever
before in his life. When asked
with regard to the tariff now be
fore the Senate. he said, "there
is no use biting at a grindstone
wheneverithose Republican ring
sters get ready to pass the tariff
they will simply crack the whip,
and the majority will trot up
and vote as the ring directs." It
was expected by many that the
Senator would take a lively in
terest in the tariff game, but no
doubt he sees the rocks, and ap
preciates the waste of energy.
There is trouble brewing at
Clemson College again, Captain
Minus, ex-Commandant, is out
in Monday's morning newspa
pers, with a signed statement,
accusing President Mell of mis
management, and harmful and
ruinuous interference with the
military discipline of the corps.
Clemson College is continually
having a rumpus of some sort.
and it is high time for those in
authority to get busy and remedy
the defects there. This institu
tion was started as an agricul
tural school, it was to send forth
farmers. but instead, it sengs
forth almost any other profes
sion. People are standing for
it, even though it does not do
much in tlie agricultural line,
but if there is to be no let up in
teeannual rows, there is go

As was expected the name of
M. W. Floyd has been sent to the
senate for confirmation. There
was some opposition in Spartan
burg to the appointment notwith
standing the fact that Mr. Floyd
had a strong petition, some of the
signer-s of which, on learning that
Floyd had voted the Republican
ticket. joined the opposition. This
opposition has been fanned by
p-artisans into intense heat, and
as we understand it. a captious
spirit has continued the fight
against the appointee's confirma
tion. Senator Tillman and Smith
