The Irby - Farley - Til 1 man - Shell
incidents have furnished refresh
ing reading for the poor famished
stay-at-homes of South Carolina
during the heated term. The aver
age reader Is too poor to visit the
Windy City and view the many
glorios now on exhibition, but our
newspapere are full of refreshing
breezes and so things are about
even. People are saying, "Oh
Shawl" at the Shell and Irby Inci
dent and it is even now a back
number* hustled into history.
But the "Oraddock" incident will
not be let die. Farley persists in
keeping it to the front. "There be
six Rlchmonds in the field." J. H.
TUlman comes up smiling as the
champion of Farley and writes a
sober-sided, calm and dispassion
ate letter laying the authorship of
"Oraddock" to the door of the
doughty Reform Senator. The
issue of fact Is a very pretty one as
it stands and the fight goes bravely
on. It was Sir Roger who held that
"much might be said on both sides
of the question." It was a Georgia
Squire who refused to give the is
sue of the light away to Ransey
Sniffle and advised him to watch
Bill Stallions at one time in the
battle and to keep a close eye on
Irby and Farley both made stal
wart snatches for TUlman's coat
tails, got a good hold and worked
with both feet and both hands, Bob
and Bill fashion to straighten out
things in this Ring ridden State.
Both were and are thorough-bred,
out and out, dyed in the wool, donrt
glve-me-out, never-say-dle reform
ers. Irby was ambitious and went
to Washington to guide and steer
the groat ship of State?"The Great
Eastern," as it were?and left Far
ley to man the little Carolina craft
at Columbia. Farley soon forgot
his mission and settled down
into a sort of officer of the clay and
sets about reforming our stalwart
and starchy melish. Here comes
now "the nephew of my uncle," Mr.
J. H- TUlman, and ventilates ugly
stories about our junior Senator.
Dr. Sampson Pope, of Nowberry, is
in it also and so here they are.
They are all for reform?and so
cry we?we all, we who are not In
. It. Let the cry go up and make
the welkin ring. Let us have re
form by all means. ?
Before another issue of this paper
Congress will have assembled in
extraordinary session. The finan
cial crisis, industrial stagnation,
and business paralysis justifies the
President in resorting to the ex
pediency of calling together the
legislative branch of the Govern
ment. All the country holds its
breath for the moment and waits
with imdatienco the measures of
relief to be suggested by the Pres
ident and the representatives of
_jUrepecplQ coming from this vast
country. One peculiar feature in
the situation lies in the fact that
the South with the East seems to
be whole and undismayed while
the great West is crumbling to
pieces. The South's normal or
chronic stagnation, her conserva
tive habits, is her strength in these
disastrous times. Her people have
hnd no money to deposit in banks;
henco there are no runs; they have
no wildcat enterprises or big In
dustrial ventures involving large
credit and hence few disasters.
How the panic came no man can
tell. Certain it is there is want of
confidence and the money centers
are holding like grim death to their
shekels; every man or woman who
has a dollar la hoading It; gold has
disappeared entirely from circula
tion and, but little else but the
white metal shows its face to the
daylight. The problem Is to re
?iioro confidence and we believe
Cleveland is equal to the emergen
cy. Repeal the Sherman act, stop
the compulsory purchase of silver,
hush the talk of free coinage, let
the country know that we are not
to have a debased and dishonored
medium of exchange, confidence
will be restored, money will seek
. Its usual avenues, business will be
revived and prosperity restored.
Stand on the Democratic plat
form In the meanwhile. Repeal the
ten per cent tax on State Banks of
issue, or at least givo some other
basis of credit besides gold, which
we of the South have a dearth of,
and all will be well. We are aware
I We are trenching on deep water in
discussing the moneys question;
but we are certainly privileged;
every wiseacre knows himself a
j doctor of finance; the most con
firmed Idiot or lunatic in the coun
try is as learned as his neighbor.
II wise men had guided the finan
: clal affairs of this country all would
, be well, unless they were knaves;
all is not well and therefore, the
authors of our financial condition
are fools or knaves. We trust Con
gress and the President will lift us
from the slough of despair.

A witty writer has said tint life
would be endurable if it were not
for the month of August. Romance
provides the best possible means
for making one forget the discom
forts of the dog-day season, its Au
gust issue being a model "Midsum
mer Number." A feature is made
of the remarkable tales of Polish
and Hungarian writers, foremost
of whom is Maurice Jokai. Among
these talcs is "The Fate of a Nihil
ist," an original production of great
power; "The Attaman " a wonder
ful story from the Polish; and a
Hungarian election comedy. A hu
morous watering-place sketch by
Geraldino Bonner; a charming love
story by " The Duchess"; a blood
curdling ghost story by Guy deMau
passant; an ideal rural sketch by
Henri Greville; and a very funny
incident by Fernand Beisseir, are
a few of the many other attractions.
