TUURSDAY, APRIL O, 1888.
TEXAs, like the United States, is
enbarraisscd with an uwieldly sur
plus. There are $2,000,000 in the
treasury, which no one knows what to
do with, and as the sessions of the
Legislature are biennial the Governor
has been forced to call an extra ses
sion to devise some way of disposing
of the money.
IT is stated that the losses on both
sides of the strike on the Burlington
Railroad is as follows: The Chicago,
Burlington & Quincy Company loses
$1,105,203 and the Brotherhood of
Engineers $800,840. This may look
as if the strike is bound to be success
ful, but it must be remembered that
the C. B. & Q. R. It., the biggest cor
poration in the country, can afford to
lose many times the amount of the
Brotherhood-a comparatively weak
No Iudlsendence In Columbia.
The Columbia municipal election
was hold on Tuesday, and everything
passed off in the best good humor.
The great interest centred In Ward 4,
the ward of the now well-known
The election was a most gratifying
one to the Democratic party, for the
straight ticket was elected by a hand
some majority over the Independent
ticket and thus forcibly illustrated the
fact that the masses of the people in
Columbia fully appreciato the impor
tance of union li the Dc'hmocratic
ranks. One feature in the election,
as reported in the papers, deserves as
much condemnation as that which has
been poured upon the heads of mis
guided Independents. Indeed, it
amounts to the same thing in the ond.
Mr. Beck, who was a regular nominee
of the party, was scratched by some
voters because his name also appeared
on the Independent ticket. Ills name
was used without his consent, and
there is no excuse for those regular
Democrats who scratched his name.
The principle is the same in either
Now that this election is over lot us
hope that any bitterness that may
have been engendered by it may be
forever burled, and that our erring
but patriotic citizens, who wrongly
thought that their action was for the
best, may again como umloer the pro.
tecting fold of the Democr~matic party
and dwell. with their brethren in
peace. Thcy probably do not think
they have ever left the party, but that
is what the action amounted to, and
we hope they will come back and use
their influence herefter in preventing
any distasteful selections in the party,
amnd work with a will to secure its
success at all times.
We clip the following from the
News and Courier, which is so preg
nant with good, practical common
veuro and advice that we want every
man, woman and child in Fairfield to
read, ponder and d'gest it:
Every State, and section of a State,
in the South is looking out for itself,
and its efforts are to hold up its own
claims to publie attention and secure
their consideration. TheL State or
section that kCeps silt and expenda
its enzergies in the way qf mursing the
experctation or hope of a flood of im
miglrationr is very likely to b>e fqft to
develop itef on that tine. (Italios
The people whom we all want to
induce to come and make their homes
in the South are wide- awake business
men, who are accustomed to methods
of sharp competition, and who will
very naturally judge of the character
of the communities which are com..
peting for their favor by the methods
these communities employ. These
men will go first to the States and
counties and cities andl towns which
advertise themselves, passing all oth
ers as "dead" or as having nothing
worth advertisingr, anid the probability
is that they wvill 5s01p at the place
which first pleases them. It is their
way at home .and their movements in
this p art of the country will b)0 regui
lated by their fixed habits. The wvise
plan for any and every p)lace that
dlesires to attract immigrants of this
class, or of any class, is to advertise,
and to keep pvertising, In every i 05

If we would just make up our
minds to live, die and be buried in old
Fairfield and to put our shoulders to
