(CONGRESS could repe.l the ten per
cent tax on Stite banks in a very
few days, end its affect would b- felt
in less than two weeks.
WE should be glad if some one of
the banks in the State Ehould make a
fight on the constitutionality of the
right of Congress to impose a tax of
ten per cent on State Banks. It is
true that the question was brought
before the Unitea States Supreme
Court in 186G, bat this was just after
the war and at a time w henu the
- Supre me Court was componed princi
pally of ien who were followcrs of
the school of Loose Consh uction.
lie comp'ex of the court is omiewhat
different now, aid as the %n-tiu10ftion
ality a-f the law has been doubted by
nmany eninent lawyers, and cven
when it was upbeld it was by a di
vided court, it i8 possible that the
decision in Yeazle Bank vs. Fenno
would be overruled. This decision
was quite a departure from first princi
ples. It would be a 2ood thing for
the country if we should return to
first principles in many respects.
A WORD FROM MR. JEFFARES.
Mr. Editer: Some time last spring
I i' ote an ai cle for your paper and
spoke in commendable terms of ex
Senator Wade Hampton, ia cor 'tec~ion
with the Railroad Commissioner's
office. Not long thereafter some one
wrote a communication from th'is sec
tion headed Fragmnts ?'om Feaste':
lie and signed "S'ck Til1lmar;'e,";
and also postscripted his first article
by saying, "B trrab for Hampton !"
That's all r'aht. I can say the same,
and still remain a Icyal Tillmanite.
At that tinme I was afraid somre of your
many ieader~s would be impressed
with the idea that I wrote the article
above mentioned. Being prompted by
a patrioile motive io put myself aright
before the public, I wrote a card in
which I stated that I wes not the
author of the letter signed "Sick TIll
manite." In your last weekly issue
t'1ere is ano'.her commenication headed
and signed as above muentioned, and
postscrip'ed "Bob Jefibares did not

inquiry. I wou'd like to know

ter~ms of Hampton, or did ho seek to
put me in tbe attitude of one who has
proven recreant to the Tillmaa faction.<
If he did he has fallen far: short of his
expecta: ions, for no one in this corn
munity for one moment atiributd the
authorship of that sick Tillmanite <
le~ter to myself. IE that was his in- <
tention, I will say tl's much in reply. 1
He says himself that oar financial
troubles might be atitribtuted t.o a lack I
of confidence. Yes, in place of seek
ing~ to misrepresent me, he might haveC
apnropriately ererted I s influenr I
and intellectual faculties to restore
that so much needed confidence. I am
- not a sick Tillmanite whenever I fail
to be a follower of Gov. Tillman..
I shall adher e to the principles of 1
economy enunc'ated in the platform I
u'non which T~I'man was elected. 1
That man has a perfect right to write I
a piece and sign it as he pleases. He
wvrtes as if he was a Tillmanite and
signed as if he was not. Hew incon- I

ture of his recent letter. Will won
ders never cease! I belong to the Al
liance, but I cannot suggest the dis- 'l
pensation of Congress and the substi
tution of the Alliance therefor. We b
have our representatives in that e
august ]egislative assembly who are I
to~iay voic'og the sentiments of the c
Allianice. They are men who are not S
afraid to contend for the rights of the
great mass of Ameiican workmen who
are working day in and day out, yea!l
year in and year out, and who receive
as compeusation a mere pittance not
sufficent to support their families who it
are dearer to them than gold itself- a
Do these men think all that is lacking n
is confidence? No! No! Go to them C

Yes, I say we have men in Congress
who have been making speeches on
the nancial problem, -the deliverance bi
of whichwould have been received by of
the c:apitalists with the greatest cen- '
sure five years ago. They are men of ci
ability who have led lives hitherto ci
exemplary and remarkable for their tI.

forth into the arena of public discus- f
sion to contend for the rights of the
honest people of this country. They"
will not tell you that all that is neces
sary to bring about prosperity is to re
store confidence among the people.
What a misapplication of that great

Now, Mr. Editor, it occurs to ie
that the signatures and postscripts of

about the construction of his letter; if
so I apologize for writing as I have
written. I have no desirc to inflict a
wound on any man's feelings without
a just provocation; neither do I want
any one to p'ace me in a false attitude.

IDGEWAY, S. C., Sept. 12.-Since
my last, the only matter of interest
(which is certainly a matter of the
reatest interest and importance to
our town and State) is, the determi
nation oin the pact of our1 Citizens to
have a ir:t elass school here. On
WedrnesdIay ni::t a tueeting was held

ulti-g in he elcection of Mr. I. A.
Meares as principal and Miss Ruth
Simpson, (a daughter of the late J. A.
Simpson, who was a resident ot our
town,) as assistant. A subscription
list was opened and some two hundred
and thirty odd dollars subscribed. Of
course there are others who were not
at the ineting whose subscriptions
will add considerably to the amount
subscribed at the meeting.
Now, as the ball is set in motion,
we hope the trustees will keep it
moving-that the school district Will
e enlarged and a special tax levied,
vhich, together with the amrount of
ubcriptions anid the public fund,
ill enable Ridge way to boast of a
first class school, which will run some
nine or teni :nonths. With this as
urancc, families will move in, trade
e increased, the valtie of property
nhanced, and the risi:-g generaiioni
repared to discharge the duties which,
ooner or later, must n.ecessarily deC
olve upon thein.
