In the primaries this year we are
democrats. We are nothing more nor
less. The Issues before us as demo
crats are first, National. Primarily, as
democrats we fight our old foe, the re
publican party. The issue there is up
on protection and a low tariff?an ex
travagant and an economical national
administration. This issue Is a cen
tury old. This seems now howover to
be of minor consideration?the money
question rising up like a groat moun
tain and overshadowing everything
else. Parties may bo reorganized and
wo must wait until the middle of July
for the action of the Demooratlo conven
tion before parties and the country can
form any notion as to "whore they are
at." Wo may havo our minds mado
up?but the machinery may not ,be in
working order to put our viows into
operation. To illustrate?if tho Demo
crats split at Chicago, and the Repub
licans at St. Louis, a silver party may
at once be formed of the old parties
and likewise a gold single standard
party of the friends of gold In these
'parties. This noooBsarlly side tracks
the old issues upon which tho country
has waged battle for a hundred years.
So we wait.
Then we vote at the primaries In
August upon State Issues. As yet
.none are formulated. The Roform
"faction has It all its own way at pres
ent upon no Issues but men. As to
(State matters that faction, through
the ring masters will agreo upon
candidates without a platform or a
policy and put up the slate, which is
likely to go down as a pineapple bon-bon
on a hot Juno afternoon. Gantt and
Whitman may lustily kick with the
plain result of brokon shins. So, as to
State matters wo neod not bother as
rauch as to brush away an annoying
kousofly. All will bo arranged for
us. Th's Is the prospsct as It now ap
pears. I/, you can get In tho band
wagon you may share In tho plums.
In county matters thoro can be no
issue llkowlee except as to men. There
is nothing now apparant to bo deter
mined In tho choice of representatives
for the General Assembly or In tho
choice of county officers except fitness.
If the choice of United States Senator
Is made at tho primaries -ikon thoro is
now no issue except personal fitness
upon which to choose our members of
tho General Assembly.
As to filling tho county oftloes', cer
tainly there can bo no questions,
but those of competency, charactor and
Then we OUghVto have a very genial,
pleasant, harmonious settlement of all
our home affairs. There shouhyj&JAL

Tho office of Solicitor is puroly non

Thus it will be soon in South Caro
lina we havo vory narrow political Is
sues to 8ettlo?nothing to divide us?
nothing to quarrol about. Tho whlto
people of the Stato should bo together.
If they divido on tho financial issue
let It be with all kindness and good
temper. But tho question of "divide"
is hardly worth considering. A blue
hen's chicken, will die In the pit?a
true bluo democrat will hardly swal
low a sugar coated republican pill or
gilded with gold.

Some now rules were mado for tho
government of the primaries, Tho pri
mary election is fixed for tho 25th of
August, (tho last Tuesday). Govornor
and United States Senator and all
other officers are to bo voted for on
the same day. Tho polls open at 8 A.
M. and close at 4 P. M. and are at
once counted. There will bo two
boxes, one for Senator and Governor,
and one for all other officers, Including
Congressmen and Solicitors. Candi
dates for tho General Assembly and
county offices have until ten days be
fore the primary to file their pledges
and theso to be filed with the county
Chairman. Candidates for Stato ofTicos,
and theso we take to inolude Congress
men and Solicitors, must file their
pledges with tho state Chairman on or
before the 22d of Juno. Tho campaign
opens June 22d at Manning. It pro
ceeds fast and furious until July 3 In
clusive and skips tho Immortal 4th and
the big 7th at Chicago, opening again
atSumter tho 13th of July. We have our
day on the 8th of August. The place
will be fixed by the County Exeoutlve
Committee. A second primary Is pro
vided for after an Interval of two weeks
from tho first. These aro promi
nent points whloh our home rea
ders will bo Interested in. We hope
publish at an early day tho rules
overnlng tho primary elections and
amended by these new rules. The

W. W. ?ALXi,
For somo month* the dally State
proa* has been beating the bushes to
start something like a trail of what
wont with the large commission al
lowed by this State in floating her re
Issue of Bonds two years ago. In a
law suit in New York among the bene
ficiaries in a quarrel over the spoilt,
the game is partially frightened from
its form and some suggestive facts
come out. The New York Times airs
these straws and the State dailies of
Saturday last give them to their read
ers. Gov. Evans and Treasurer Bates
figure In the ozposed figuring. It will
bo remembered that the Bonds were
negotiated though one Rhine an un
heard of broker of Augusta. Sunday's
papers state that Gov. Evans had
gone to Augusta and that he would
publish a statement at once. It Is un
fortunate that the facts have not been
made public long ago as to the least
farthing of this negotiotlon in
which all the people of . the
State are naturally curious. Some
times seereoy is necessary, as in
diplomaoy; but seereoy le rarely a
badge of honesty. We do hope that our
public offloials aro prepared to show
clean hands in this matter.
Months ago it was announced that
Editor A. B. Williams, of the Green
ville News contemplated going North
to engage in literary work. It is now
announced that ho has carried into ef
fect that intention. His removal
leaves a gap in State and Southern
journalism that cannot be closed. As

fresh, strong and all in all approaoh
Ing noarer to genius than any man we
know of. Williams, besides, Is an hon

MEN, who hold the purse strings, often deprive women of articles
of inestimable value. The wife pleads with her husband for
a Piano or an Organ, which is tenfold more essential lhan the
cigar and other luxuries in which he indulges. The daughter
asks lather, or guardian, to buy an Instrument to enable her to
cultivate that beautiful talent, music. Does any sane man not
relize this a reasonable right to plead and ask for? Reflect a minute !
Think of the means expended for instruction, and the many tedious
hours employed in practice by wife and daughter, and of their glowing
anticipations subsequently to be realized.
Now, father, husband, or guardian, are you going to blast all
these bright anticipations by denying them of this merited night?simply
the gift of a Piano or an Organ?
Give your wives and daughters their merited rights in the home,
which is " Woman's Kingdom," then she will cease to clamor for politi
cal suffrage. Don't plead inability when such liberal terms and prices

Economy of Ice. Economy of Salt. Economy of Time. Economy
of Labor. A child can Operate it.
It makes the best, quickest and cheapest desert. You can freeze
your cream in the warm kitchen as quickly as in the cold wood shed or
cellar. Simplicity of construction, there being no cog wheels or gear
ing to break or get out of order, and no iron hoops to get loose.
Positive freedom from danger of metallic poisoning, there being no
metal bearings. The only bearings arc on the sides of the wooden box
The machine is an ornament in the dining room, and you can mak'
and serve ice cream or shcrbcrt as quickly as you can pour a cup of lea.
It is impossible for the Salt water or ice to leak or come jtv contact
with the cream, as the opening of the cycliiuler is outside of the box
and the machine is hut mussy or sloppy.
It is a scientific machine, made on a scientific principle, utilizing
every particle of cold produced by the ice. All the cold passing out of
the cylinder must necessarily pass through the material accumulated on
the cylinder, whereas, in the old style freezer fifty per cent, of the cold
radiates away from the cylinder and is lost.
