The unsophisticated country press
comment freely upon Charleston sup
porting McSweeney, a disponsarylte,
oi the bout for Governor. Of course
thoy mean the voters when they talk
of "Charleston " Hut Charleston
ought to feel greatly complimented
upon this kind attention. Charleston's
white population and democratic vote
is pigmy compared to the greut demo
cratic counties. Then Charleston
didn't ?'scratch" Tillman. We thought
at ttic time that the "scratching"' busi
ness was a mistake. No Democrat
would take up the glove und run
against Tillman from tho mountains
oven unto the sou. Every county and
every mother's son of tho aspiring
?stalwarts In the Stato hoisted hack
feathers and slunk away to a orack in
the barn yard fenco. it shows a dung
hill strain to crow big now. The truth
le Charleston voted for hor "cakes and
alo," and this is precisely what the
people of every county in tho State in
variably does. Every open-eyed sensible,
man In the State know substantially
that Tillman's "scratches" would pan
out as they did.
The State Democratic Convention
authorized the Executive Committee
to appoint the electors for this State.
At the meeting on tho Mist tilt , tho
following proceedings were had:
After a brief discussion of the circu
lar, Mr. Appelt nominated Col. It. D.
Leo, of Sumte r: Mr. Dial nominated
Ool. George Johnstono; and Mr. Wil
born nominated Mr. W. D. Trantham,
of Kersbaw. Col. Wille Jones was
nominated by Mr. Tatum, but de
clined. Mr. H. U. Moss, ot Orange
burg, was nominated and there was
a discussion as to the eligibility of Mr.
Moss, he being a member of the re
tiring general assembly. Ho cun of
course resign before the general elec
tion if he cares to.
The vote resulted as follows: Lee 22.
Trantham, 14, Moss lit, Johnstono, 11.
Messrs. Lee and Moss were elected.
Tho others were chosen as follows:
First District M. W. Simmons.
Second District -W. W. Williams.
Third District?Cole L. Blease.
fourth District ?W McH. Sloan.
Fifth District- W. P. Pollock.
Sixth District - M. S. Cantey.
Seventh District?George Topper.
Of course these gentlemen will cast
tho vote of the Stato for Bryan and
Stovenson ?nine votes and this must
bo done in December. It is historic
that no elector ever appointed has
violated his trust.
In Jefferson's time the law pre
scribed that tho candidates getting
the big/est vote should be President
and thv person recieving the next
highest should be Vice Prosldext. Jef
ferson and Aaron Burr reeieved tho
same number of votes and tho House
'Of Representatives ballotted many
days, the votes being oven. Fina ly
one of Burr'8 adherents absented him
self and Jefferson became President
Burr was the better Democrat, but
Jefforson was a first-class hater and
persecuted Burr to his grave. It is St.
Jefferson now, and thus runs the world
The State Executive Committee
nominated nine Presidential electors
for the Bryan ticket naming only one
North of the rocks in the rivers of the
State?the Hon. Cole L. Blouse, of
No wherry. North of No wherry nine
tenths of the Democrats of the State
reside and vote. It reminds us of the
Irishman about to marry a rich widow
being asked: "Do you take this woman
to bo your lawful wife through evil and
through good report*." "Faith your
Honor and the nagers too." George
town has a bakers dozen of Democratic
votes and as much voice in the party as
Abbeville or Laurens and they want
the honors to go along with the spoils.
Bryan will be elected and the nine
electors from South Carolina each ex

A number of old Antl papers havo
boon "taking cracks" at Charleston
since tho primary, because sho voted
for McSwconoy, who says ho has ad
ministered tho disponsarv law as well
or better than others. Tho old Auti
papers aro very wrong in lids, because
Charleston has the samo right to vuto
according to hor tastes and convictions
as any othor county. Now it was de
veloped in tho campaign that tbe old
bar-room system still prevails in Char
leston and that hundreds of saloons aro
running openly, and it Is a fact. This,
of course, is in spite of tho earnest,
Bolf-sacrillclng efforts of Governor Mc
Swconoy to enforce tbe law. Tbe in -
sults of the primary disclose that Char
leston is sick and tired of tho blind
tiger regime and will co-operate with
Governor McSwconoy in his crusade
against it. Charleston elected as hor
chief peace offleer for four years, the
former chief of tho metropolitan jm>
ilce, who was moreover largely instru
mental In having that system imposed
on Charleston. We infer from tills that
Charleston's delegation in the general
assembly will ask for tho re-enactment
of tho metropolitan police, and then,
that she will welcome tho appointment
of one of Sheriff Martin's lieutenants to
tho headship of the system. McSweenoy
atllrms most solemnly that ho is bent on
tho enforcement of the dispensary law
in Charleston, Charleston endorsed Mc
Sweenoy by an overwhelming vote and
this in connection svith tho election of
Martin to tbo shrievalty necessarily
means that Charleston asks again for
the motrojxditan polico system as tho
only means of onabling McSwconoy to
save her from tho blind tigers.
some years ago tho Charleston news
papers and iMuitioians "took on" at a
:roat rate about tho metropolitan ik>
lieo, loss of home rule, etc., and some
of us in the up-country woro so simple
as not to see that Charleston's lamenta
tions were all make-believe, so we pro
ceeded to make monkeys of ourselves
in these parts by expressing sympathy
and indignation at tho outrages perpe
trated on tho old city. Perhaps we shall
know bettor next time. Now that Char
leston seems to wish tho metropolitan
|k)lico wo trust that she may have
it and we think she was entirely right
in voting as sho chose in the primaries.
The fervent patriotism and high prin
ciple of Charleston voters have been so
often illustrated in tho past ten years
that their motives aro beyond suspic
ion, and the ridicule heaped upon Char
leston by that old Anti Haskellito
sheet, tho Columbia State, is most re
Now that tho census returns nre
being made public It Is a good time for
country editors to show to tbe country
how it happens that Charleston hasn't
a population of 200,000 or so. This
would bo one-sixth of the ontiro State.
Well now, travel from that lively town,
Alston, on the Broad River, straight

his philosophizing. Ask Brat why all

read of the want of growth In the
other community. Three quarters of

The Black Diamond Swindle.
Tbe latest advices relative to tho
Black Diamond Railroad aro to the of
fect that T. C. Dick nson, who has been
in London, is a failure as a financial
agent. Tho citizons of Knoxville,
I Tenn., sent a special representative to
London to investigate Mr. Dickinson
and he found Dickinson had simply
played a big bunco game, and no money
would lie forthcoming from that quar
ter to build the road. It appears that
t he whole mattor has been a stupendous
j swindle by the prime promoters, who
have now fallen out among themselves
about tho division of tho spoils. If tho
road through tho Rabun Gap is ever
built (and wo bolieve it will be) it must
bo done by other parties. The Diekin

The Uraded Schools.
Tho next session of tho Laurens
Graded Schools will begin Monday,
17th inst. Parents will please bear in
mind that it is very important for I
children to enter at tho beginning of
the sessions and attend regularly.
I would like also to urge upon pa
rents tho fact that chlldron must study
if they accomplish their work In sohoof.
Too many children spend their after
noons in idlencsss. Asa consequence j
they soon begiu to fall behind and ?11 j
tho power of superintendent and teach
ers cannot save them from the
habit of Idleness that soon fastens it
self upon them. It is with the teacher
to direct, to Instruct, to encourage, to
repress and control for a few hours
each day and to Inspire as far as possi
ble, for tho work to be done out of
school. Hut tho first and greatest re
sponsibility rests upon parents. Un
less a father controls his boy at home,
how can he exnect the teacher to gov
ern him properly at school? Unless
children are required to do their duty
at home, how can they be expected to
do faithful work at school?
To study or to waste timo is almost
altogether a habit easily formed. How
much better then that children be re
quired to remain otT the streets and
acquire tho habit of study at the very
beginning of school.
Let parents, pupils and teachers en

determination to get the greatest pos

Johnson and Latlmer.
Many people say there Is a strong
resemblance as to personal appearance
between the Fourth Districts' newly
elected Congressman. Joseph T. John?
son, and the Third District's old relia
ble, Asbury C Latimer. Each of them
claims to be tho handsomest and both
have their porsonal as well as political
Both the old and the new congress
men are lino products of up-country
farms, Mr. Latlmer from Anderson's
level fields and Mr. Johnson from
Laurens' red hills. Both are largo,
good-nat.ocd, e;?sy and popular In
manner, and both of them have won
their fight against big odds. Mr.Latimer
is probably the older in years as well as
in ollice, but both commenced running
for eongroBB tho same year.
The probability is that Mr. Johnson
will hold on to his commission us well
as Mr. Latimer has. Mr. Latimer
landed in 1 S? 12. winning over the able
and popular George Johnstone, a line
politician and noted lawyer, and he
seems to have a lead-pipe clinch on tho
prize, do is an able and faithful re
presentative and has the support of
people of all shades of politics.
It is predicted for Mr. Johnson that
he will have his people "grappled with
hooks of steel" like tho Anderson man
has his. They aro greatly dis
similar, however, in so.ne respects.
Mr. Latimer is a farmer and a go ?d
one and Mr. Johnson is tho b.st
kind of a lawyer. Mr. Johnson
Is the more profound and scholary of
tho two, for Mr. Latimer's education
is not extensive.
Both those South Carolinians, good
looking, generous and faithful are to
