THERE IS A WAR BREWING.
The European situation does
not seem to clear up very fast. S
and it may yet result in a conflict, p
of arms between several of the r
monarchal poweis. Germany S
stands pat with its demands upon o
France, and Tallyrand is not in- a
clined to give in to the German t
demands. If thisMoroccan trouble a
ends in a war between France and s
Germany in our opinion, England m
will take a hand, and probably p
Spain, as these two governments t
are interested in Morocco also.
But the effect upon American. ex
ports is the most serious consid- d
eration for us, if a war treaks -
out the exporting of cotton will i
be largely checked because of the s
stopping of the mills from run
ning, and the demand for feed- ,
stuffs will be greatly increased b
so that the cost of living in this 3
country will weigh heavily upon j
the wage earner. It is to be hop- i
ed that war in Europe can be c
averted, but should it come then b
we look for a considerable drop 1
in the price of cotton for a while b
a least, that there is something s
brewing which bodes evil may be i
the ca-use of the great slump in i
stocks recently, a. looking over i
the stock quotations in the com
mercial journals show a large
dropping in stocks and bonds,
and when this is the case, it is n
usually followed. by declines all 3
along the commercial lines, and v
in our judgment the European v
conditions have a lot.to do with i
this state of aeairs.

W OREING FRIENDSHI (>VER TIME.
Whatis the matterwith his ex
cellency the goverr.or? Has he C
gone daffy on the subject of C
-"standing by his .friends"? Ac- e
cording to a letter from him to 1i
Senator Suliivan of Anderson, t
who recommended a James aJ
Walter Kelly to be appointed a
Notary Public, the governor re- t
quires the senator to personally s
certify,that Mr. Kelly is a friend v
of his (the governor) before he s
will commission him. We are 0
- afraid the governor has his office J
-and some of his fraternal orders e
mixed, for there is nothing in the C
law. which requires an applicant t
for an appointive office to be a J
friend of the appointing power, u
but there is a law which requires t
the recommendation of two mem- fl
bers of a county delegation to ant
-application for a notary public t
*commission. Governor Blease's V
action in this matter is silly. T
The News and Courier of Fri
day .referring to the comments of
-THE TIMES on the alleged pap
ding of the registration boook i
for the city election, asks if we o
-think it altogether fair in us to a
-say "that those in control of the iC
election machinery should be
held responsible." Who should er
be held1 responsible, if not
those in control of the elec
tion machinery? The registra- a
tion officers are appointecd by 10
those ln authority, and they'
should see to it that the condi
tions complained of did not exist.
True, the order of the court came
at a very unfortunate hour, and
we are astonished that so careful ti
a Judge, and so good a lawyer ti
as Judge- Memminger should 0
have signed such an important4
order without having given it a
thorough consideration. His n
statement in connection with his d
revoking order, while explain
ing how he was led into the a
error, does not remedy the ti
wrong done, and will have the ti
effect of intensifying the dis-q
appointment of the Judge's

Editor Hemphill, formerly of
outh Carolina, is carrying his
olitical luck to Virginia. In the e
ecent contest for the United
tates senate the Times-Dispatch
pposed both Senators lMartin
nd Swanson for re-election, but r
Ae senators won out by a large 0
iajority. The Major played in
imilar luck 'n Lhis State, excepL d
,hen it came to Charleston's local 3
olitics, then he was with "the e
oys," and was happy.
The Texas senator Joseph Wel- A
on Bailey has announced that he e
rill not stand for re-election, and e
is said that when he retires he t
ill not return to Texas but will P
ractice law in New York, we
onder if this announcement will
ave any effect upon the cotton
iarket? We have regarded
ailey of Texas, ever since we
eard his address before the
outh Carolina general assem- P
ly, the most over-rated r: - ;n h
ublic life, and while he is suart 1
e lacks a whole lot of being a 0
tatesman. Texas will lose noth
igs by her senator's determina- h
ion unless that State replaces s
,ailey with another just like him.
