Bryan for President
The claim bas been made that
thc nomination of Bryan would
mean another defeat of thc Demo
cratic party and for this reason
some of the .papers are lighting
him. At thc head of the oppo
nents of the Nebraskan stands'the
New York World, a so-called dem
ocratic oigan, lint in reality the
spoilsman of Wall Street and thc
minion of the moneyed interests.
This paper is fighting him all along
thc line and calling upon the peo
ple not to nominate him but this
is only adding strength to thc tide
which has set in strongly towards
the Nebraskan. Ami o u r o 1 d
friend, the News ami Courier, is
moving heaven and earth in its en
deavor to keep South Carolina from
declaring for the Nebraskan but
we fear that all this is in vain.
We don't see what is the matter
with nominating Bryan. True bc
lias twice been defeated but, what
of that? It only goes to show thc
true stuff with which he is made
that he never knows when he is
defeated. It is tho man who eau
arise from defeat and keep driving
at his purpose whom wo admire
and the world applauds and Bryan
us such a man if there ever was
ono. Ile has thc spirit which wins
and we predict that his nomination
this year will mean that the dcmo
s a?*o going to have a better
iee of winning than they have
since Cleveland was elected in

When tlio d?mocratie conven
>n meets. There is lin1 cry of
.itting an eastern man on tho tic
ot so ho can carry Now York,
ow Jersey, and numerous other
states. But this folly was shown
in 190-1. ND man, unless ho is
willing to bow to the inoncyd in
terests, stands a ghost ol' a chance
in tho cast and hence lots try the
west. Rather than an eastern man !
.?els have a southerner for we know
that he can carry tho south and
that is more than Parker did in 1
tho last election? lie lost one of
the southern states and his home
state by large majorities and so it
is folly to talk about an eastern
man for the nomination. Lets
have mon, and Bryan for Presi
dent with John j Johnson, for
vice-President would make a com
bination with more likelyhood of
success than anyother which tho
democrats can putin thc field.
So Frank B. Gary is the Senator.

House and that was about all that

The state league of baseball this
summer is to be composed of Ches
ter, Kock Hill, Sumter and Oran
gcburg. Wo don't know how the
other matters are but we can bot
that there will be plenty of "blow

list.-Marlboro Democrat, lien ne

Yes, contemporary, thero mn.v

Ami the next paragraph in tire
above, named paper reads;
What is the matter with Ben

WAS NOT NOMINATED
D. D. McColI, Jr., was not Nomi
natcd for the Senate by
BIca.se - A Correction.
lt was stated in the last isssue
of the Democrat in the report of
the legislativo balloting for United
States Senator that Cole Blouse
had nominated Mr. D 1) Mcdill,
Jr., ol' Marlboro and then tho vole
for him was given, lt has since
come out that this was wrong and
did Mr. McColl an injury. The
facts aro that Mr. Mot loll was
never nominated and as soon as
his name was voted for he arose
in his seat ami asked the presiding
ollicer to withdraw his name as he
would under no circumstances per
mit it to bc used. Several of Mr.
McColl's triends asked him to al
low his name to be voted for and
there is no doubt but that he would
have polllcd a good vote but he
would not permit thc usc of his
Thc information in question as
to Mr. McColl having been nomi
nated by Cole Blease was gotten
over the long distance telephone
last Thursday just before the
Democrat went to press. The in-j
former at the Columbia end of the
line was mistaken. Mr. Freeman
called up Mr. J P Gibson and ask
ed him about the balloting and it
was Mr. Gibson who said that Mr. I
McColl had been placed in nomi
nation by Blease.
Mr- Gibson says that Mi-. Blease
did,on the llooi", make some com
plimentary marks about Mr. Mc
Coll, and ho thought, at thc time
that ho was placing Mr. McColl

AN ODD WAGER.

Gambling has always been a favor
ite occupation for tho sons ot royal
houses, but none of them probably
has ever exhibited so much wit and
Ingenuity la his hotting ?s n foreign
prince did ut his Btay In Paris.
Ile laid a heavy wager with a mom
lu *r of tin? Imperial club of tho I-'reneh
capital that within two hours he
would be arrested by the police with
out committing any offensn or pro
yoking the officers of tho law lu any
fashion, Accordingly, having clothed
himself lu rugs of tho most disreputa
ble appearance, he walked Into one of
tho most aristocratic restaurants In
tho city and ordered n cup of choco
lato. The walter refused to serve him
unless bo showed evidence tbut bo
could pay. Tho prlnco at once drew
a roll of bank noten from his pocket
and offered ono of large denomination
to tho astonished attendant. The lat
ter took th? bill and carried lt at once
to the proprietor, who sent for tho
police, in tho meantime allowing bis
Strange guost to lie served.
As Boon au tho authorities arrived
they ii misted tho Incognito Hon of roy
alty and took him to the nearest sta
tlon, where of course ho wa? released
after ho had disclosed tho facta of tho
affair.-N?W York Tribune.
Tho tenn color blindness Implies an
entire absence of the color sense, and
there are u few persons who aro lu this
condition, but lt also Includes nil tho
forms of partial color blindness In
which tho perception of one of the
fundamental colon; -red, green audi
violet Is wanting, aud which aro
known as red bllndnosa, green blind
ness and violet blindness. Tho lino be
tween theso various kinds of color
blindness and a perfect perception of
colors ls not sharply drawn, HO that n
largo number of persons have what ls
called a fooblo color sense, which falls
short of actual color blindness. Thero
ls no doubt that color bl I nd noss in itu
various forma is much moro common
than ls genorally supposed, and lt ls
moro common among tho imperfectly
than the well oducated classes.
