Democrats and Republicans are the
grand classification. Tho Republicans
are the "Ins" and can afford to be gen
orous. McKinley was classed as broad
and generous and justly so. Roosevelt
is abused roundly because of a just
prido In kindred who fought on the
confederate losing side. At the same
time tho two parties are as wido as the
poles apart on distinctive lines. Re
publicanism is centralism?nationalism
?and the party has its mission?to
make this a monarchy in fact, nomi
nally republican?with all tho para
phernalia of an empire?a great navy,
a grand army, colonial donendenoies.
There is but one force to neutralize this
tendency?this all butdoolarcd purpose
and policy, it matters not what a gov
ermont Is called?but what It is. There
fore tho truo Democrats are on their
guard, and watchful of every politician
who coquots nf dallies with the Repub
licans, and the delicacies they give
out to so-called democrats. Tho dead
liest animals have tho softost tread, the
sharpest claws in velvety paws?the
gentlest stroko and the sweotost purr.
Democrats should be on their guard,
when the Greoks aro bringing gifts.
Be ye on tho look out, wise as 6orpents.
The exception provos tho rule. It is
conceded that McLaurin's mission is to
aid the Republican policy of building
up a respectablo white Republican
party at the South. The South is the
conservative force antagonizing cen
tralization in this goverment. This
conservative force will eventually win.
Democracy at tho South is tenfold
stronger than a sentiment. In its in
ception it was founded on reason and
argument?there aro five generations
of H in the bleed, muscle and bones of
its still young manhood. It will fill Its
oars with wool and never hear the se
ductive eongs of golden and official
Plalock loses tho Colloctorehip. He
wont to Washington with McLaurln
and it seems all was well. Then tho
old lino Republican gang followed and
they got Loomls into a talk and he de
clared himself tooth and nail one of
themselves. 'Thus you must be flesh,
fish or fowl. You can't pull with the
hare and run with the hounds and win.
In tho meanwhile keep your mouth
shut until tho other follow has spoken.
Dewey's conduct of the Sohley Court
of Inquiry indicates that there is one
unbiased gentleman in the United
McLaurin's scheme for Republican
ising South Carolina won't work.
There are not enough offices.
This Will Interest Many.

Tho Laurcus County Fair.
Instead of writing up, as wo had In
tended doing, our Fair, we reproduce
from Saturday's Nowa and Courier tho
story as so well told by that paper's
special oorrespondont, Mr. J. E. Nor
ment, who was detailed for the work
by his paper and spent two days with
us. His opinions while highly compli
mentary to all, are those of an impar
tial observer, and show clearly that no
town, no community, ever loses any
thing by an expressed willingness to
entertain strangers or by exploiting
its advantages and aobievements, that
now oltlzens may bo attracted and a
(rosh impetus imparted to its citizen
ship for yot greater undertakings:
Laurens, October 0.?Special: To
day marked the close c! the second an
nual Fair ol the Laurens County Agri
cultural and Mechanical Fair Associa
tion, and the promoters have every
reason to feel satisfied with the result.
Last year Dr. W. H. Dial and Dr. H.
K. Aiken began work and they soon so
interested other prominent business
men that about $1,000 was subscribed
for tho purpose of organizing a fair as
sociation. Suitable grounds wero leas
ed on the suburbs of the town, a grand
stand, raco track and some of tho nec
essary buildings wero erected, a good
premium list was olTored and no admis
sion fee was charged. Tho gates were
open to literally carry out the true
spirit and intent of the business pro
moters of the scheme.
Tho association was organized for the
development of Laurens County by the
business men of tho Court House town
and to give the farmers, country friends
and visitors a cordial welcome.
It was, in no sonse, to be a inoney
tnaking scheme, and the attondance
and result of the first year wore more
than encouraging, and this year every
thing grow and Increased In most satis
Tho orowd yesterday was a largo and
very much interested one, and this de
spite the tact that aolrcus was coming
Tho citizens of Laurens gonorally
wero out In full force In tho grand stand
especially when the blooded animals
wore going around tbo arena. All
classes weroropresentcd, including tho
grave seigneurs, whoso honorod records
aro known over South Carolina. Col.
B. W. Ball, enthusiastic In his admira
tion of blooded studs, had an eye un
?dlmmed that looked at prize wiuners.
Dr. John A. Barksdaio left his presi
dent's chair to see what was going on
and with these wore many of tho stir
ring business men of this growing
Col. J. Wash Watts, who "will drive
one hundred miles to go to a county
fair," was shaking hands with many
without having such a long drive. The
Laurens belles were out in force. Mr.
J. C. Wllborn, president of the Nation
al Farmers' Alliance, was kept busy
and his State colleague. Col. J. H.
Wharton, was far from being Idle.
Premiums were offrod in all the field,
stock, mechanical, household and art
departments, and somo unusually fine
specimens were seen In every depart
ment. In the household department
Mrs. W. T. Senn carried off the honors
by getting the premium for the best
aud largest exhibit.
In tho art department Miss Mary
Patillo Simpson had a study of Circe,
which was an unusually fine spoclmen
of tapestry painting.
Here also were some fine pen and Ink
sketches, aftor Gibson, by Miss Mary
The horses, racers, trotters and sin
gle and double harness teams would
make formidable competitors at tho
State Fair. Mr.W.E. Lucas's handsome
pair carried off first prize for double
teams, and Mr. J. W. Bobertson won
?first single team prize with a stylish
wearer of the blue ribbon
Mr. A. T. Brown, of Newberry, made
six entries of racers and fine stoppers,
and seems to havo carried off a dozen
prizes and some perquisitos. His stand
ard bred stallion, "Adjust." was an
easy winnor of the first prize in this
class, and his beauty, "Lilly Brown"
won easily every race she ontered.
Mr. Griflln's nag did the same thing
in tho trotting race, winning every,
thing in straight heats.
Messrs. Owens, Peden and Walker
were winners in the half mile races,
and these were flno exhibitions.
Davis, Roper & Co. and J. E. Minter
& Bro. had fine displays from their
large stores, and among the trav
eling men present was Mr. L. C. War
ing, of Charleston.
One of the ladles present will pardon
your correspondent for specific personal
mention, but the circumstances justify
this. Mrs. Daniel Munro, now of Gold
ville, who was Miss Fannie Griffin, of
Laurens. Is a living Daughter of the
Bevolutlbn, her father, Private Joseph
Griffin, having served in tho Continen
tal army, running away from home to
secure this privilege.
He was married three times?a trib
ute alike to the charms of the girls and
the bravory of the men of ye olden
time. Mrp. Munro, now 66 years old,
Is a daughter of his third wife and
owns the golden spoon presented to
living Daughters of the Kovolution.
The Laurens County Fair has boon
most successful so far, In tho face of
difficulties, and will hereafter, over
smoother seas, sail to larger successes.
