The State supreme court has filed its
decision in the case of D. W. Al.lerman
against L. L. Wells, county treasurer,
related to the constitutionality of the

Act constitutional, affirming the decis
ion of Judge Watts. The attornies for
the Treasurer were J. H. Lesesne, Esq.,
and Mr. DeBruhl, assistant attorney
general. Charlton DuRtant, for the
appeliant, Alderman. The opinion
holds that the Act does not vio
late the constitution of the State
or the constitution of the United
States.' This decision will have the ef
feet of more legislation to provide more
means for the enforcement of the in
come ta-. law.

The Tow Goyernment.
The new town council recently elect
ed has been installed, and it has a plen
ty :o do, if it does the work neen-y to
ieep the town in g'ood condition. The
lack of money will be a draw back to
anything like putting in any improve
mets of a permanent character, and
the citizenship cannot expect from a
ouncil handicapped as the new one will
be, anything more than cordinary rou
tine work. It is our information, that'
the funds derived from taxes have been
pledged in advance by the retiring coun
cil, they had no righit to do this, but
right or wrong, it has been done and
the new council have no'Lhing else to do
but pay up.
Every man elected represents proper
ty interests, all of them are new except
the Mayor, he has had experience as
Alderman, and as acting Mayor. He
should be in position to know the town's
needs, being young and ambi-.ious we.
have no doubt he will if properly sun
ported give to the town as good an ad
ministration as conditions will permit.
It is the duty of all good citizens to give
such aid to the officers as will help them
in the administration of affaim,. and
when it is seen that the council is en
deavoring to do something for the pub
lic good. let us give them credit as quick
ly as we criticize them when they do
that which we disapprove of.
To begin with, we propose to suggest
to the new council that one of the most
important things for them to consider
is the town's sanitary condition: an
inspection of the store lots will show up
a condition needing the immediate at
tention of the council. Then there
sh-.'d be made some provision which
wi.: ,ut a stop to the filthy condition of
the streets, waste paper flying about,
piles of dirt, fruit skins and all manner
of filth that accumulates to an extent
which should receive prompt and effec
The laws of the town should be en
forced, not with a view of making mon
ey, but solely in the interest of goad
order: they should be enforced with dis
cretion, and not always to the letter, for
instance, the laws against Sunday sell
ing, there are none who would care to
see a general practice of Sunday selling,
but we do not think the inhibition should
go so far as to require the police to ar-,
rest the news butchers on the Sunday
trains who sell newspapers and fruits,
to the passengers on the trains passing
through, we do not think it right to for-'
bid the delivery of fresh meats and ice*
within certain '.ours in the hot months
on Sundays, nor do we think it alto
gether fair to have ordinances which
will prevent the free selling of products
from the country: it is injurious to the
town, as it keeps away a people the town
must get supp.)rt from. A farmer has a
beef or pork be wants to dispose of. un
der the regulations heretofore existing,
he either had to sell it to the markets.
or pay a license, the result was that,
many a one regarded the requirement
an imposition and they went elsewhere
where the right of legitimate barter and
sale was not restricted in the interest of
a few, and some of the few, members of
council aiding in the making of the re
strictive laws. This town should repeal
every ordinance that has a tendency to
keep people away.
It is not our purpose to dictate to coun
ci what it should do, but as a citizen, a
taxpayer and one who is fe.'ced to pay a
license to do business. r.e claim the
privilege to iet council know how we
see things, and then when we have done
so it is up to council to see if there i5
anything in the suggestions made. But
whiatever council does, there should be
nothing secret about it, the public
should know, the telephone poles and
the public spots decorated with an ordi
nance is not the proper way to give prop
er notice of a town law. The formner
council, as a matter of economy refrain
ed from using the town paper for the
purpose of giving publicity to the ordi
nances they enacted. and yet they were
not so economical when they paid large
sums of money for superintending work
that the police could have done without
extra cost to the taxpayers. It is penny
and sv.'ailow camels. The public in and
t'a of .\anning is entitled to know what
new law.- the town makes. Do we ur;:
this in our own interest? Yes. We al,u
urge it in the interest of rhe gen-ral
public that this newspaper is urging
to make thi. town the place to market
their products and to purchase th-ir
goods and wares.
The Coming City.
There is an imbrvo a new city in
Clarendon county. It is- Sardinia kwca:
ed in the heart of the best ceneral farm
ing section in the curty. aO it Zes
without saying that Sardinia is situated
in the heart of the tobacao belt, On last
Thursday there was a sale of town lots
by a oromotingi company. the sale was
largely attended aniI all lots offered were
sold at, good prices. To enliven the oc
ca,'ion there was a brass band and a big
dinner, the dinner was a cracker-jack,
and two of Sardinia's tinest and fastest
eaters were there in good shape. we wil!
not sav who these two were, but will
leave it to tne crowd to guess It is al
ways gratifying to learn of the progress
of any community in our county and we
bope that Sardinia will soon have elee
tric lights, trolley cars, factories, bank..
and all of those things which go to make
a big city There are no finer neople in
the world than the Sardiniaites and with
the surrounding excellent lands, good
good merchants steady pullinz together
there is no reason why this baby town
should not soon throw off its swaddling
clothes and become full grown. Hurrah
for the coming city of Sartlinia.
The name Sardinia comes from an is
land belonging to Italy, next to Sicily
the largest island in the .lediterranean
Sea. and from it there is exported min
erals, wine, olives, salt, fish and1 char
coal. and to it there is imported cotton
and woolen goods. coal iron products,
and various manufactures: it is .-idel;
into Cagliari and Sassari, is estimated a.
The people of ancient Sardinia were
of small statue, rather a dwarfish race,
but our modern Sardiniaites are a stal
wart race of b-awnv descendents of the
Scotch and Irish, German and French.
and are possessed of the thrift and ener
gy of all of these races, together with
the hustle of the American idea for ac
complishing results. Therefore with this
sort of a pedigree much can with confi
dence be looked forward to from the new
city just launched.
An interesting Case.
The celebrated -Pink Franklin" case
before the supreme court of the United
States is about to be heard, and the
State is represented by Attorney Gen
eral Lyon and Hon. 13 S. Henderson of
Aiken. The defendant is represented by
Jacob Moorer of Orangeburg, and Rev.
John Adams of Manning. Thir ' case
which went up from Orangebut The
defendant. Franklin. killed a constable
who was endeavoring to arrest him un
der a warrant on the charge of violating
a labor contract- He was convicted of
murder, and the State supreme court
confirmed the verdict. then it was ap
pealed to the United State's supreme
court. A few days ago it was announced
from Washington Ex-attorney general
of former President Roosevelt's cabinet,
Mr. Charles J. Bonaparte. would repre
sent Franklin, and that he would attack
the constitutionality of the labor con
tract law as being in effect a law that
sanctions peonage, and that the defend
ant had a right to resist the arrest.
When the announcement was made,
Rev. John Adams, one of the attorneys
of record, gave to the press a statement
in which he refused to recognize Mr.
Bonaparte's right to appear in the case.
Adams is pastor of the colored A. M. E..
church of this town, and he is now in
Washington to make the argument- In
yesterday's press account it is stated
that although Mr. Bonaparte's brief is
filed, he has not shown up in court, and
has retired from the case.
Claren don's Ingatitude.
Editor The Manning Times-I
In the name of every Confederate
veteran of Clarendon county living
or dead, I protest against the weekly
exhibit as published in your columns.
of the estimate in which we are held
as shown in the brief list of subscrib
ers to the monument proposed to be
erected in this county- Far better to
let this patriotic duty remain in
oblivion than agitate it with such
mortifying results. A ny citizen who
will take a retrosnect of the indiffer
ence and neglect 'as shown by Ciar
endon to her veterans would scarcely
expect such a sudden and violent:
change in sentiment as to erect a
monument to perpetuate a heroism,
suffering and neglect, as would
never be endured by the young men
of this or any succeeding generation.
An effort was made thirty years
ago ithis direction, andlwas ap-i
pointed with the fairest young bud
in Friendship township to canvass'
this section, which we did faithfully
behind a pair of high steppers, but
truth to sa.y, I was at that period
more intent upon gathering a "bud"
and laying the foundation for earthly
happiness than building monuments
to dead heros; but she was morel
faithful and petitioned most bewitch -
ingly which should, have won goldI
from a shylock, and so affected me
that I offered to build the monument
for h-er myself.
The spirit of indifference prevail
ing today antedated that period, for
we obtained not a dollar or the
promise of one. So it must be mani
fest to all that if Clarendon refused
thirty years ago to subscribe one
dollar jor a monument to heroes and
are today in the saune unpatriotic
frame of mind, why, of course it will
neer be built, and she can continue
to enjoy the reproach of being the
only county In the State that has
failed to erect a monument to her
patriotic sons. This is her treatment
to her glorious dead, let us see if she
is any more mindful of her living
heroes. When the badges of honor
arrived at every court house in the
State they were received and taken
charge tof by the Chanter of the
Daughters of the Confederacy, resi
dent in that town. They published
an urgent call to every vereran in
their county to assemble at the cou rtl
house on a given day and allow them1
to pin this emblem cf honor over
their brave old heart and to escort
them to an elegant banquet which
would be served for them exclusively~
and to wait upon them. All of thisj
was fully and lovingly carried out.'
Now, 'how were they received at
Manning and bestowed upon the
veterans of this county: The box
containing them, without interest)a r
excitement, was quietly carried up
town and left with a lady for distri -
bution whom I happen to know was
true and loyal enough to have given
every veteran in the county a feast
on one day in her yard, but she had
no co-operation and could only tear
fully hand them to the old heroes
and congratulate them upon serving~
four years of such fierce war, and~
hoped they would live many years
longer. WVhat a contrast to all the
other counties in the State wvas thins
Now as to individual courtesy and
respect shown them. At a recent
amateur entertainmnent at Summer
,ton an old wounded veteran ventu red
out from his bachelor den and was
modestly seated in the rear of tihe
hall enjoying the music. when a
young man with more hair than

assuming the character of a witty
da key. alluded ina fli ppant manner

Ihaving lost his hair, which disre
Ispectful remark would have brought
hisses froml a cultured audience, but
