Boisterous and oft repeated as
sertions that the repeal of the
Sherman act will reduce the
amount of money in circulation
aro worthless until they are forti
fied with evidence. During the
past lineal year while the Treasury
has been buying $4,000,000 per
month the circulation has actually
decreased. Inferior dollars whose
faces are full of false pretenses of
value expel honest coin and do not
increase the real, stock value on
It is strange that people allow
themselves to be deceived with the
cry that debtors were ch&atod by
the demonetization of silver in '73.
The facts are that only eight mil
lion silver dollars had at that timo
been coined sinco the United
States camo tnto existence. They
were a nominal quantity in tbe
country's currency and it is folly
to Claim that the cessation of their
manufacture affected obligations
of debtors to any approciable ex
tent. We believe that a sound and
stable money, whose value at any
moment may be estimated with
reasonable accuracy, is what a
country must have to insure per
manent prosperity and we doubt If
the health of business depends
upon the number of dollars in cir
culation nearly so much as the po
liticians aver. A measure to ex
pand the currency by Congress
would probably afford some re
lief but its most important bene
ficial result would be in removing
the widespread distrust which has
found a lodging deep in the hearts
of tho people.
If there is a Tlllmanite editor in
the State his name is Nettles. If
there is a dispensary editor in the
State his name is Nettles too. Mr.
Nettles runs a paper In Sumter
and here is what he says in last
week's issue: ??
It is said that in Lnurens the ad
vocates of the dispensary not be
ing able to get a majority of the
freeholders of that town to sign a
petition for a dispenser, a deed to
to one-eighth of an acre of land
was made to about fifty or sixty
white men and negroes, and that
these additional names were used
to secure the appointment of a dis
penser. This is all wrong, and the
board of control should have re
fused to appoint a dispenser under
the circumstances. We believe in
fair play and an honest course, but
such a proceeding is neither fair
nor honest. We suspect that it is
through spite and on account of
politics that a dispensary was not
established in Laurens, but then it
is better to quietly submit to these
evils and bide the time than to take
such a rash and revolutionary
course to accomplish one's purpose.
As to Mr. Nettles' suspicion that
"it was through spite and on ac
count of politics that a dispensary
was not established in Laarens, we
presume to refer him to our Till
manite Senator, Dr. Fuller, who is
a consistent prohibitionist and who
strenuously opposed the intruding
ol a dispensary upon us.
Otherwise, Mr. Nettles, your
points are astonishingly well taken.
In the September number of
Harper's Magazine there is a strik
ingly interesting account of a gen
eral election in England written by
Kieh.ml Harding Davis, Mr. Da
vis emphasizes very strongly tho
points in which an English elec
tion differs from those to which he
is accustomed in the United States
but Mr. Davis writes from the
standpoint of a Northern man and
in therefore familiar only with po
litical contests as they are fought
and won under Tammany ideals
and standards. If he had been in
South Oarolina during the last cam
paign he would have found that
"heckling" and the other unpleas
ant features of English elections
are not by any means new in the
United States. Mr. Davis descrip
tion would apply very accurately
to a Southern campaign if that
part referring to the participation
of the English women were left
If every man in the State were
presented with a bushel of paper
dollars worth ten cents a pound
yet legal tender it would be a boon
to people who are in debt. It would
help debtors if a few tons of silver
dollars worth fifty-two cents each
could bo^du raped on the country.
A still better and* equally Just
and reasonable method of helping
debtors would be to pass a law al
lowing them to repudiate their
debts entirely. The benefits of all
these plans would be temporary
Governor Tlllman's sincere and
intelligent efforts in behalf of the

heartiest respect und admiration.

We have abundant faith in the
strength and power of our political
views to convince if they can be
accorded a fair hearing. We do
confess, howevor, and it is with
mortification, that a very large and
important element of the masses
has been persuaded to ignore and
shut their eyes to anything that
unTillmanistic papers may say,
and we among them are so cut off
from frank and candid argument
with the very -persons with whom
it is our earnest desire to speak.
It Is not only deplorable but re
markable that two-thirds of tho
white people of the State seriously
suspect the honesty of all the Anti
Tillman papers published; and this
in the face of the fact that every
Anti Tillman paper is daily losing
dollars by its political course. It
is In tho face of tho further fact
that there aro not more than two
or three Anti Tillman editors who
have been office seekers while the
Tillmanite editors who have gained
political rewards may be num
bered by tho dozen.

to expect unwelcome receptions

A stranger attempted to cross
North Baborn at T. Hellam's ford
on the road leading from Dials
Church to Babbtown, the creek
was up and his horse could not
pull the buggy up steep bank. Ho
saved his horse by cutting him

Damages at least ten dollars. The
buggy floated down the creek
against the foot log, and the neigh

"Last night's session found Tal

There was at one riotous epoch no
one but the Speaker, the mace,
Talbert and the clock in the House.
Mr. Talbert was making a perfect

on the brass rail back of the seats,
he contemplated Talbert humor
"'And Mr. Speaker,' roared Mr.
Talbert, catching sight of the
Wheeling statesman, 'I want to
say that tho statements of my
friend from West Virginia made
in his recent speech on the floor of
this House cannot bo sustained.'
Pendleton looked disgusted at this
very unparliamentary employment
of himself in Mr. Talbert's spoech.
Cocking his hat over his left eye,
he waved vaguely at the lono
talkor. 'You're a Republican,' ob
served Pendleton, with which re
