COME NOW. LETS HAVE rBEM
We have a distinct recollection
of asking The State to publish
the names of the stock holders of
the Carolina Glass Company, a
corporation doing business in the
city of Columbia, which sold bot
ties to the State dispensary, and
a commission composed of reput
able citizens having the investi
gation of the transactions be
tween the dispensary and the con
cerns which did business with the
institution, alleged they tind that
the CarolinaGlass Qmpany over
charged the State of South Car
olina to the extent of thoisands
of dollars, the same as the whis
key houses did: in plain English
this Commission, which is a court
created by an Act of the general
assembly, charge this glass com
pany with having robbed the tax
payers of the State. The Colum
bia State being the champion ot
virtue has been politely asled to
give to the public the names of
these people of Columbia who are
charged by this commission as be
ing theives. So far, it has not seen
fit to comply with our request,
butperhapsitis because the editor
has been busy leading a fight for a
commission form of government
in the capitol city, and his leader
ship resulted in his views being
adopted almost unanimously, he
has not had the time, and be
cause, following the endorsement
of his leadership he was busy in
securing the proper Mayor and
Councilmen, but now that his
labors for civic virtue are at an
end, and he has had his leader
ship again endorsed, we hope he
will oblige an awaitmg public by
giving to them the names of the
gentienen who own the stock in
the Carolina Glass Company. It
is hoped The State will not re
gard our persistence as imperti
nance, even it is has placed us un
der the ban, but not for our sake,
for the sake of the public, the
people who have been robbed
would really like to know the
names of the devils that robbed
them. and if The State does not~
give up theinformation-it has it,
we are sure, for it knows every
-*thing even if it has to learn it]
after it has happened, and then'
inform tbe public "The State pre
dicted ete" the patient public will1
suspect The State of shielding
the wrong doers who happen to
be Columbians, and closely con
nected with some who are vitally
interested in The State.
PLaTFORMS RIDE WELL.
Hon. Cole L Blease, candidate
for Governor, has given to the
~press the platform upon which he
proposes to make the race this
summer. This platform has a
niumber of strong planks. We fa
yor the majority planks in his
-statement, espeily do we favor
its local self-government feature,
a position we have held for many
years. We also agree with him
in his retrenchment ideas. The
tendency towards extravagance
in appropriations has been grow
intg, and there must be a hait,
a ~ oe run ona more eco
nomical basis, there shauld be ap-1
plied to them betterbusiness man
agement. His platform is attrac
tive an? catchy, it appeals to the
mind of the restless who are grow
ing impatient at the increase of
tax levies. Col. Blease is a strong
debater as well as an experienced
campaigner, when he goes before
the masses his speeches will pro-'
duce the applause. H~e polled a
very large vote when he ran be
fore. and his recent endorsement
by the people of his home city1
will be of help to him in the com
When the liquor question is
eliminated the candidates will be
pretty much on the same plat-'
form with Blease, the fight will
be reduced to a choice of individ
ualb, all of the candidates are op
posed to extravagant appropria
tions, favor the public schools,
and retrenchment in all branche
of the State government. -In our
opinion the liquor question can]
be eliminated from the discussion,
by the State Der-ocratic commit
tee requiring the question to be
-settled by the voters aside from
the nersonnel of the candidates,
this can be done by having the
tickets to be voted in the primary
prepared for the purpose.

Senator E. D. Smith has jump
ed into the fore-front in the Sen
ate. and is keeping Senator Ald
rich busy wondering how this
rapid firing Carolinian was not
discovered sooner. Just as
soon as the senate undertook to
inquire into the cotton condition,
the speculations of the Bulls and
Bears. Smith was right on the
spot. There is no man in the
United States as well qualified to
talk on the subject of cotton, and
there are no set of men in the sen
ate that can keep Smith quiet
when the South is being misrep
resented. It is said that it re
quired ten stenographers to keep
up with Smith's two hour speech
a few days ago, and he had not
got fairly started. Smith went to
the senate fighting for the rights
of the cotton growers of the
South, and whenever the oppor
tunity arises the people of the
United States are going to keep
informed of the injustice done the
section which has a commodity
the world depends on, he will
keep on agitating the cotton
question until the government
recognizes theclaimsof the South
and lends its powerful aid in
bringing the South into its own.
Hurrah for Smith.

"Common Sense," a weekly
newspaper published in Charles

that this company, through a

the company. The juror report

there is in this charge we do not
know, but if it is a fact that ju

offers of bribe, it seems to us the
editor would serve the public by
bringing this matter to the atten

way. Tampering with a jury is
an offense which should 'e se

It wasi not without some misgivings
and fears, tha.t this poor wanderer start
ed on his journey to Daizell. The name
h~d a grating sound, and he knew noth
ing of the stature of the inhabitants over
there. He sought in vain, for a defini
tion of the name. and was forced to the
conclusion after arriv~ing at his destina
tion, that Daizell is a compound word,
meaning beautiful dale.
It is hard to get to Dalzell. and after
becoming acquainted with the hospit
able people there, it is harder to get
away. I shall say for the benefit of those
who are so unfortunate as niever to have
been there, that it is a beautiful little
town: situated between Sumter and
Camden in a splendid farming section.
Here it is, that the most promising
young men from other sections, come to
seek wives, from among the fair and
lovely daughters of the inhabitants.
We fiad here. some of the most pro
g-essive farmers to be found anywhere.
We had thought that the Blrogdon sec
ion could never be turned down in a
searni for the best farmers: but we have
already thrown up our hat nd yielded
the floor to Daizeii.
To show the Brogdon farmers that
they ..re not atbreast with the times,
there is a farmer living in~ this good
section, who has planted a new r-ound
in corn, expecting to clear the iand as
he works the corn. There are several
fields between Lynchburg and Dalzeil
which have been producing corn r~nd
cotton for several years with a pretty
heavy growth of timber yet on the land.
This wanderer longs to pass through
the Bodon community again. In im
agination, he-can see the happy chil
dren playing in the streets. We feel
sure, that the liberal minded people of,
that progressive neighborbood, will ex
cuse this over-estimnation: for this scribe
lives largely in the future-: and he is
now thinking of the time when Brogdon
may be a great city, with broad streets
and avenues, beautiful parks, and all
the marks of a modern up-to-date city.
If we. coudA only ennd ten thousand
vears on this terrestrial ball, we might
see Sumter and Manning crumbling into
ruins: while the great and growing city
of Brogdon. with its commission form of
government, might be holding in her
beneficent hands, the reins of the com
merce of the world. Why they already
have down there, oce of the most beau
tiful sites for the capitol of the United
States. to be found anywhere. Well our
imagination oets to be unwritable.
Some people live in the future, where
thev anticipate great achievements:
while others live almost wholly in the
past: dwelling upon what they might
have accomplished. or left undone: oth
ers lve so rapidly in the present, that
they find no time for anticipating the
future, nor be wailing the past.

any of the readers of this paper be kind

The farmers of Dalzell are getting

appeals to me very much. I wish he
had had, more to %y about the
long ago. I was coming in as those days
were going out, consequently I have
only a faint recollection ot the times
''before de wab." His allusions as to
old Mammy, Dinah ard Daddy Ned,
seems vivid to me.
I recollect once, when Mr. Bowman
came home on a furlough, wounded,
(I thought badly) stopped at my
father's house, dined there, and it fell
to my lot to carry him home (about 12
miles) in the afternoon, and if I re
member aright, we were to start that
evening when the shades of the house
top reached the root of a tree in the
yard. On our trip he kept me well in
tertained with his war experiences.
That night, after getting home. he had
an attack of (I think) cramp colic, and
of all the moans, groans and fuss, tnat
asick man could make, he made it.
What the Yankees failed to do (kill
him) I thought the cucumbers (of which
he ate at my father's that day) would,
and ever since then, when I see cucum
bers on a table I generally think of Mr.
Bowman. However, the old fellow
seemed to be all right by morning, and
s soon as able ce paddled back in front
of the Yankees again. I like "-Old
Rock," I have had many a hearty
laugh with him. God bless the old fel
low, and long may he waive.

Edor The Xanning Times:
The weather has certainly been un
seasonable of late; crops in this sec
tion have been held back consider
able by the cool weather. Cotton seed
brought such a good price last year
that the fartnerssold all they had ex
cept planting seed, and if a killing
frost were to come, nearly every
planter would have to do a little
huntng for more seed.
Mules and automobiles are not on
speaking terms in this section. A few
parties speak of buying machines,
and if they do, the driver of Mr.
