TO SELL IS COMMERCIAL SUICIDE.
The Manning warehouse com
!.any has sent out a circular let
,er urging the holding of cotton.
The weather conditions have
:;een so favorable for harvesting
.:e crop that the receipts at the
ports have been and continue to
be abnormally large, but there
is this to be said, the receipts
.ill soon slack up unless there
Is a much larger crop made than
h..s been reported. Under the
e:cumstances, it would be the
-.rt of wisdom for those in a
.Osition to do so to hold their
cotton and keep it off from the
.-arket, but those who are un
alble to hold, let them put their
cotton in the warehouse, borrow
o nough to pay their debts and
wait until later, even until spring
market. The holding of cot
ton is the only way to counteract
tze work of the speculators, and

armers to take advantage of
these facilities to do their part in

THE GRAFTERS FAIL OF CONVICTION.
The failure to reach a verdict
in the label-graft case tried in Co
lumbia was a disappointment to
nterested readers throughout the
State. The oublished testimony,
however, failed to show suffi
zient proof to convict, and while
we believe the State was robbed
out of over $20,000 on the label
transaction we could not see
from the testimony where the
jury would have been justified in
bringing in a verdict of guilty,
unlessthe law permitted a ver
dict on personal belief instead of
on the evidence.
When this case will come up
again we do not know, but in our
opinion it is a waste of time and
money to continue these prosecu
tions. Attorney General Lyon has
done his duty full and well, it is
not his tault that several of these
who were formerly connected
with.the State dispensary are at
liberty today, but when it is real
ized that sufficient evidence can
not be secured to convict, it
seems to us that it would be the
part of wisdom to wipe the in
dictments from the dockets.
The war is on between Turkey
and Italy, another excuse for
the speculator to press down the
price of cotton. Italy has been
wanting a foothold in Africa,
where the Turkish government
has had control for 300 years; it
is our opinion that other powers
are behind this move and it will
not be long before the cloven
hoof will be revealed. At any
rate, the money centers are be
coming sensitive and cautious
about letting out money, and the
industrial activitives in this
country will be affected seriously
for awhile. With this condition
there are alw-ays those who fat
ten upon commercial stagnation
and we expect to see a money
When Governor Blease said
that he voted for Wade Hampton
for the United States senate he
must have forgotten that Hamp
ton's opponent was not elected
on the first ballot but it took
seven ballots to decide, and
Blease left Hampton after the
first. He znay have left Hampton
because he saw that the state's
redeemer stood no show, but it
would have been better for him to
have looked up the record before
he boasted of his vote, then per
haps he would not have left room
to be suspected of attempting to
be misleading. We know it to be
a fact that the Journal is not al
ways correct, but if it is not
there is a time when it can be
corrected, and if a person per
mits the record to stand wrong
he cannot after many years give
error as an excuse.
President Taft may say nice
things of the South, and do th
very thing the South wants;
the voters will praise him for it
but will vote for the other fellow
just the same.

President; and Mrs. Claude
Wright, Manning, Secretary.
The first Saturday in November
was set for the first regular meet-'
ing of the Teachers' Association.
[t is proposed to have a meeting~
nice a month during the school
erm. This association also
adopted a resolution of thanks
long the line of that proposed
by the trustees' association.
These meetings are calculated
to give the cause of education an
impetus in this county. It is
expected that every teacher in
bhe county join as soon as pos
sible. It is very much desired
that the next meeting of the
rustees be more largely attend
ed. If the cause of education is
to be promoted it is absolutely
aecessary that every one get in
touch with his duties, and strive
to aid the superintendent in
building up the country schools.
At the call of Prof. E. J.
Browne, county superintendent
f education, the teachers of this
ounty met at the Manning grad.:
d school on Saturday afternoon,
September 30thi, and organized
the Clarendon County Teachers'

Why Thackeray Was Moved to Tears.
A lady, an intimate friend and a

home, called late one afternoon. She
was shown into the study, and on en

seated at his desk, his head bowed
pon his arms. Fearing she was In

and unknown grief, she paused, hesi

of some help or at least express her,
sympathy, she stepped forward. Just
then Thackeray looked up. His shoul
