New Minister Welcomed.
There was at t.he Manning Baptist,
church last Sunday night a large con
gregation to greet the new pastor, and
to give him a welcome to th s, his new
field of ministerial endeavor. In honor
of this occusion there was no services
in the other churches, and all joir~ed iu
the union service with the Baptist c-on
gregation. Rev. G P. Watson, of the
Methodist church presided, Rev. S G.
St ukes opened the exercises with praye r
S. Oliver O'Br~s an, Esq , as a member of
the town council, in behalf of the wu
in well chosen words expressed to thbe
minister a hearty welcome. He was fol
lowed by Rev. L. P. McCord, of the
Presbyterian church, in welcoming the
new co laborer to Manning, when hb
concludtd Mr. Watson announced that
M r. 3. K Bree-din was to do the honors
for the Episcopal church 'but could not
be present, then Mr. Watson, for the
Methodist church, estpre.-sed his good
wishes and assured tae pastor of his
hearty co operation in all thbat will go
to the up-lift of the community. The
addresses of welcome were responded to
by Capt. D. J. Bradham in behalf of the
church, in which he thanked the other
churches for their kind words. Rev. J.
A. Ansley, the new pastor, responded
feelingly to the welcome that had been
given. him, and then he preached a
strong, tpractical sermon, the kind of
sermon which lives after the words are
spoken. Mr. Ansley is a man of fine
physic, has the marks of earnestness
de-picted in his face, and we feel like
predteting for him a career of great
uselulness in this community.
Three Robberies ILast Week.
There has been several robberies in
this town recently, which are not only
annoying to those whose homes were
entered, but it is giviug the whole town
an uneasy feeling; as long as these
sneak thieves are at large there will be
considerable uneasiness. Last Th ursd ay
night the home of Mr. C. M. White
was entered through an adjoining room
window, from where Mr White was
sleeping, and a trunk taken from with
in three feet of his bed, the trunk was
carried ont into a cotton field, rifled
and left where it was found the next,
morning. The same night in the same
neignborhood, the home of Mr. W. T.
Sprott was entered through a screen
door, the sleeping room whetre a
lamp was burning was entered, the
thief did not disturb anything but Mr
Sprott's pants, from which he took
h is porse con'aining a bout $5, anad
h.-n dropped tile panns on ti e fl-'.r

dr-opped the pants. These happenings
are yern unusual iu this town, an~I we
ar-e satts6ed nothing will be left undone
to anprethend the gu~ltr parties There
have been a number of new faces heree
of tate, both white and colore d, whether
any of these strangers are the thieves
or not cannot be said. but the authori

Manning's Cotton Market.
Tn formerseasons there was complaint
of Manning not being abreast of the
times as a cotton market, but this com
plaint cannot be truthfully laid at Man
ning's door now, because it does not ex
ist this season. and the indications are
there will be no ground for such a com
plaint any more. Manuing today is one
of the best selling markets in this sec
tion of the State, from the beginning of
this season's marketing it has paid
more for cotton thia elsewhere, and an
investigation will nrove Manning has
paid :iny where from 25 to 50 points more
than the nearby markets. The buyers
here have started off well, if they keep
it up, as they seem determined they
will, an increased quantity of the stanle
will be attracted to Manning. and the
merchants who are largely responsible
for the present favorable conditions,
will give it encouragjemenr. by offering
good values at close figures. and keep
in their stores just what the people
want; with the farmers getting in Man
ning good prices for their principal
product, and the onoortunity to buy
what they need at fair prices there is
every indication of this being a great
season for the business interests of this

The work on the Panama canal
is fast approaching completion,
and when It is completed w~e
hope the promise of getting the
government to send tbe machin
ery to the lowlands of this State
will be carried out. When ti~e
congressional campaigners were
bot-footing it over the district
the draining of the lowlands was
their long suit, all did not have
the same idea as to the way it
was to be done, but they were
all agreed that if elected,~ they
could interest the government
in sending the Panama canal's
machinery to drain these lands;
there could be no greater boon
to the people of the low country
than for the government to carry
the water off and give them the
opportunity of reclaiming a vast
territory of~ the most fertile
lands in the world, and the con
gressman who can accomplish
this much desired legislation,
would be deserving of a life
tenure in office-But.
Governor Suizer is a Demo
crat, elected in the last Demo
cratic tidal wave, the legislature
of New York is also Democratic,
and it was this legislature that
institutnd impeachment proceed
ings against him, however, im
peachment does not necessarily
carry with it conviction, and from
what we have read about the
case wve doubt if Suizer will be1
convicted. The sentiment out
side of the Empire State is large-.
ly in favor of the governor, main
ly because Tammanyv ismade to
appear as the moving s p i r it
against Suizer. Ex-President
Roosevelt, together with many
of the other leading publicists,
is outspoken in sympathy with
Governor Suizer. and when the
time comes for the impeachment
proceedings to be acted upon we
look for every Republican and
Progressive in the New York
legislature, to line up with the
opposition to Tammany.
