Nothing- In a Name.
??A roso by any other name would
smell as sweet." There is no doubt
about this proposition of tho great
dramatlo poet. "Commercial Democ
racy "Is tho pseudonym under which
McLaurin and followers have been
kissing hands and swapping favors with
the late President McKluloy and the
present "frco lanco" President, the
Rough Ridor. Nobody will be fooled
by the name. "Commercial nomoc
racy" is good enough to pass for Mc
Kinloy and Roosovelt republicanism.
Why, tbero is nothing in a namo. A
rose by any other n:\nio would smell as
Thon indeed, ail tho gentlemen who
are aocopting olllce, favors, and dinings
and wfnings, and kissing glassos with
the Rough Rider, are good, honest fol
lows?gentlemen. Wo aro speaking
now of South Carolinians. They would
not accopt anything except they gav?
an honest equivalent?quid pro quo
something for something. They aro
all "honorable men," and must stand
by Rosy, and accopt his favors. Let
us, however, be gentle with them -
they may call themselves new fangled
names?"commercial democrats," If
you pleaso. It is tender with them
now?and they should bo dealt with
softly. After a little their pockots
will bo swelled and they will be full of
good swill and will bo full-grown re
publicans in namo. as well as In faot.
But they will not bo much in our way,
don't you know.
A H?ten in Time.
A merchant but the other day want
ed to buy ten car loads of corn through
a broker in this city. This is a poin
ter. There is nob ? fifth of a supply of
corn in tho county. Our people eat
very llttlo of tho product of corn In
this day and time. Black and white
eat broad made from wheat flour and
we oall it eako, or once so called it.
There is plenty of seed wheat In the
country and .planters should sow It
largely and sco that their tenants do
tbo same or they should sow it liberally
and supply their tenants It is easy to
supplement tho corn deficiency. There
is abundance of hay to subsist the
stock until April, and by sowing oats,
barley, rye and clover another crop can
be made. These are tho natural feed
of tho horse and In no other country
but this Is corn fed to tho horso half so
liberally. Wc will do well to got our
pigs fit for the knifo on what little
corn is iu the country.
In the election on 21st inst., Lee, tho
proposed new county, seoms to have
won by a big majority. Ic takes par Is
of Darlington, Kershnw and Sumter,
getting the largest area from tho last
named. This gives us 11 counties.
Grass Is a good thing in its place,
but you should not let it grow under
your feet. The energetic gentle
men having In charge the "Laurens"
Exhibit for tho Exposition should
bo hustling. Of course we would not
hint that they aro not doing everything
that their hands find to do.

leans towards "Commercial Democ
racy," discourses of Koesters appoint
ment as a "Queer Selection." There
is no over-estimating tho possibilities
of our language.

THE BOOKER WASHINGTON IN
Its Effect Will h(Ufi Fut quietus ou
Editor The Advertiser:
The President's entertainment of
Booker T. Washington, the Rood ne
gro, at family dinner has out the jugu
lar of the proposed white man's repub
lican parly In South Carolina. The
1 'resident's subsequent appointment In
South Carolina of an alleged decent
white man was a paralyzing blow to
the groggy McLaurin party.
Doubtless Mr. Roosevelt believed
that It was his duty to declare by an
act louder than any thundering wordy
declaration that the woll behaved and
high-mlndod negro might aspire to the
sweetest joys that the society of the
highest clvllixed had to offer. Doubt
less the President purposed to tell the
nogro that worthy achievement would I
Ira. no reward boyoud his roach.
The President from his point of view,
the President as a Northern man,
thought he was right.
But tho President, and more notably,
tho Northern uross that sustains him,
gro38ly and absurdly misinterpret tho
South. They construe Southern criti
cism of the black and white dinner
party as tho outburst of chlldleh preju
dice. Only Northern ignorance in
doallng with this critical matter ilnds
The barrier that the white man raises
In tho South against soolal intercourse
with the negro is merely the expression
of the white man's Instinct for the
purity of his blood. With millions of
negroes swarming at our doors we
know that rigid, iron-handed, pltiloss
exclusion of them from tho dream,
much more from the realization, of so
cial equality, is the single hope of tho
whlto race to oscapo loathsome extinc
This profound feeling, call It preju
dice if preferred, does not exist gene
rally In the North because tho menace
of numbers Is absent. Northern men
can receive the cultured negro of Ala
bama as Southern men received the
cultured yellow colored man of China
in Auhevlilo last week.
But Southern men had hoped that
in this relationship to the negro that
embarrases and threatens them hero,
thoy had the sympathy, the tolerant
and hopeful sympathy of the President
and tho North. They thought that the
North understood; and that at last the
best of the North had agreed with the
best of the South, that the negro should
bo lifted by education to a higher level,
but none tho less separate level from
that of the white man.
Tho Washington dinner and its ro
ceptlon in the North explodes this
hone. It is woll that it does. It is
well that tho Northern President and
the Northern press defiantly toll us
that social equality is tho goal that
they wish for tho negro. It is woll
that wo are put on guard and wo should
be thankful for the timely if blundor
It is possible that this incident is of
only passing significance. We hope
that It Is. Wo hope that It does not
permanently moan that tho appear
anoes of frlondllness on the part of tho
North towards the South made so plain
by Mr. McKinley'? administration aro
not idle Yet for the present we must
assume that thoy are. t 'mil there Is
another and a different manifestation,
let us realize that boyond Mason and
'Dlokeon's lino Is still nurtured tho son
t i men t that threatens all that the South
as a people holds most dear. Later, pos
sibly oven during Mr. Roeeevelt's ad
ministrations, conditions may change
and it may be revealed that the
Washington Incident may not bo fol
lowed by the consequences that logl
oally would How from it. But wo can
not without a foolhardy disregard for
racial safety take this for granted.
The writer of this has sympathized
largoly with some of the views held by
Mr. M'cLaurin and would now ropudl
ato many of the doctrinos of Bryan
Democracy, believing them ill-advised
and foolish. But it behooves us to face
the fact that tho raco question affects
us far more nearly and vitally than
any of mere political expediency. It,
thereforo, behooves evon those who be
llovo with the writor that the creation
of another political party than the
Democratic in tho South, but one
founded on whlto social exclusivonees
as its keystone, would make for liberty
and advancement to hold far aloof from
coalition, at least until a change
comes. Holding in contempt the po
litical methods of Senator Tillman as I
do, I cannot as a Southern man or as
an American citizen refrain from
acknowledging that he is under these
conditions a safer leader than Senator
McLaurin Onoe there was a prospect
that McLaurin would replace the
malodorous republican party In South
Carolina with a clean and healthy or
ganization. Now it appears that tho
change is only onoof office-holders with
no outlook for material improvement,
for Mr. Roosevelt has made improve
ment for the time Impracticable. In
my judgment, the man who holds office
in South Carolina under Mr. Roosevelt
gives implied approval to Mr. Roose
velt's views, evon though he does not
feel that approval and the McLaurin
party by Mr. Roosevelt has been
dragged to the plane which Republi
canism ocoupled in South Carolina be
fore McLaurln's advent.
Finally, as a sound money man, as an
opponent of Mr. Bryan's views, as an
opponent of Senator Tillman, as a be
liever in expansion and Id legislative
measures for the commercial develop
ment of the whole country and partic
ularly of tho South, I hopo that some
thing will take place that will oblite
rate the memory of this Booker-Wash
ington alt'i.'u- and remove the fear with
which it was ladon for ovory patriotio
white man in the Southern Statos.
But at thl-i time there is but one thing
for the white man to do and that is to
close up! All along the line! And de
j fond the white man's colors!

Gentlemen of tho Uraud Jury.
I must confess my surprise at your
censure of myself before the court af

body in tho Grand Jury room, and ex
pressing yourselves as satisfied with
my statement of ray official conduct. 1
have soon several of the body since the

me it was not thoir intention to cen

Rut must say you should bo very care
ful to examine the petitions proscntod
your Body bofore you should censure a
public officer for misconduct. It is a
vory easy matter to get up potltlons ,
for men are prone to Und fault if they
cannot lead others to do their bidding.
Now lot us examine that wondorful
petition. It starts out with saying:
We the undersigned tax payers of Lau
rena County. Now twelve namos ap
pear signed to it. Eight of the twelve
are not on the tax books of Laurcus
county, But ono of tho twelve llvo
in our county, tho other eleven live in

from Nowberry pays taxes to tho

We have in Laurens county a popu
lation of 37,580, as per census 1001, and
$5,000.088 of assessed property, and no
complaint from theso to censure the
Supervisor. But this petition from
Nowberry, headed by tho "Grand Mo
gull" of K innres is used to injure an
ofllcer who has tried to do his duty.
Now gentlemen I cannot seo your de
sign. But I expect to do my duty as I
see It In the interest of overy cit'zen of
Laurens county, and will not be drlvon
by any one.
In conclusion I will say to the honor
able gentlemen from Newberry, as they
seem to be so much intorosted in tho
roads of Laurens county, and have not
contributed one oent for these better
