Tho red ist rioting Bill (McGownn's)
wnsa#poeia order for yesterday. It
will be several days under lire, and
thore will be much wrangling.
During last week a great delegation
from St. Louie, in the interest ' the
Louisiana Purohase Exposition, visited
our Grand Capitol and addressed the
Soloes in jo nt session urging that tho
Stale send a big exhibit and build a
house for Its accoutodaiion. We
couldn't do better with our little money
than advertise our State and her re
Coopiv has a bill lo create a 1 aurons
County Fluking fund commission. This
strikes us as promising good for the
county. Our county debt is an awk
ward stump and wo are continually
stubbing our sore too upon it. Our
County tax is 7 mills, and .'1 is for inter
est on a debt twenty years old. We
should gradually reduce the debt and
very soon a one mill tax will meet it
and then we can make good roads and
other needed Improvements.
Sevoral Hills have boen ratified and
aro now Acts: The New Jury Law: To
put a stop to 'cannon crackers; and a
dozen others of no interest to our intel
ligent loader." (who pay tho piper).
Thore is a Laurons Bill, we believe,
to enable the City School Trustees to
charge a small incidental fee.
There was a Stout fight in tho House
on the resolution not to puy the Solons

After a hard light child labor in the
Goi.oral Assembly was killed. It was
very well, considering the manufactur
ing conditions In the state. As wo
have before urged manufactures are In
leading strings in this State and the
proposed legislation was premature
The mat'er of child labor is no great
evil as ye*. When in fact manufac
tures assume Importance, the demand
to regulate child labor will come, when
tho hills aro capped with smoke stacks
and the roar of machinery is hoard all
around. Tho texti'o industries will
probably grow. It seems to bo uncon
tradictec1 hat tho South can produce
cotton to . .iy extent?only limited by
the capital and labor supplier. As ag
riculture ceuses to be profitable labor
as well as the dollar will ceaso to fool
with it?men do r.ot Idle away mufele
nor money. Tho fine will come
when every stick of timber, rawhide,
bone and feather will be. subjected in
this State to skilful handling, and be
come materials of woalth instead of
waste. It is therefore wise for the
peoplo of this State to encourage by
every means tho present tendency to
multiply industries for thoso whoso
destiny is to work.
In redlstrieting tho State for Con
gressional representation tho General
Assembly every ten years (or new cen
sus) has a delicate job. Counties or
divisions must bt> placed so as to soctre
"compact" and "contiguous" territory.
The difficulty arises in avoiding put
ting two incumbent Congressmen in
the same District?as one In such case
would necessarily have to go overboard.

scheming, and wire pulling. To Illus

an Incumbent to vote to fix to suit h'm

and throw the weight of h's m'ghiy
influence In favor of the coming Oaf

trick-, and maneuvers in the scramble
for political place.

was recently appointed postmaster at,
Greenville, was hero to ascertain who
is blook'ng his confirmation. He did
not have to go far to find out that he is
stubbornly opposed by Senator Tlllmau.

divided on the subject and the Presi

mise of some kind might be rescued
which would result in the confirmation
of Mr. Kichardsor.
It is understood that Senator Till
man refuses to withdraw his opposition
on the ground that Richardson has
gone out of his way to heap personal
abuse upon him through the columns
of bis newspaper. Senator Tillman
declines to accept any explanation or
permit tho responsibility for tho objec
tionable articles to be phlftcd to other
shoulders than those of Mr. Richard
son's. In his opposition to Mr. Richard
son on personal grounds he Is sustain
ed by a long lin > of Senatorial prece
dents and, unless be can bo induced to
yield to the appeals of Mr. Rich-rd
8on's friends, the indications are that
tho appointment will fall of confirma

Our readers will readily recall that
when Senator Tillman begun bis

A full history of my case, to be used at your discretion.
About five years ago my right ear began to sing, and this kept on getting worse, until I lost
my bearing in this ear entirely.
I underwent ? treatment for catarrh, for three months, without any success, consulted ? num
ber of physicians, among others, the most eminent car specialist of this city, who told mc tha'
only tn operation could help rae, and even that only temporarily, that the bead noise* would
then cease, hut the hearing in the affected ear would he lost forever.
J then saw your advertisement accidentally in a New York paper, and ordered your treat
ment. After I had used It only a few days according to your directions, the noises ceased, and
to-day. after five weeks, my hearing in the diseased car has been entirely restored. I thank you
Searfily and beg to remain Very truly yours,
