The Trouble Over Reciprocity.
Lack of harmony among our Repub
lican friends in Congress seems to be
growing apace. Five separate and dis
tinct conferences on tho Cuban Reci
procity bill have brought about no defi
nite results. Tbis division in the
ranks of the majority?and the con
tending forces 8oem to be Irreconcila
ble on this Tariff question?affords the
leaders much anxious worry. They
know that this family row must be
settled or there will be serious objec
tions raised at the polls this fall. They
aro very well aware, too, that the late
President McKinley favored the meas
ure and that President Roosevelt is a
supporter of it, and not to carry out
their avowed policy means trouble.
Hut the "infant Industries" must be
looked after, and besides, their whole
doctrine of "Protection" conflicts with
the bill. Howover tboy seem to attach
moro importance to this "cplit" than
it i8ontltIed to There is always a way
out of the holo somehow, and even if
they do not como together, they should
not fear the Democratic party until it
becomes more solidly aligned. That
old motto "United we stand, dovided
we fall" is a very good oue sometimes,
but in this insta"ce they must have
forgot*-?n that fher 1 i* a co tain W. J.
Bryan, rt presenting a certain faction;
th itthe- e i.-> a ccrt.dn Dave Hill stand
ing for something eUe, and that the
Hon. Grovei- Cleveland is not exactly
dead. Then your Undo Adiai Steven
son is not a back number. However
much they may worry over the Reci
procity measure they are very likely
to do at least 20 por cent of their plain
duty, and oven if they fail in that, the
Democratic party, wo are sorry to say,
Is not yet In a position to secure certain
victory. Free trade relations with
Cuba would probably help the South,
and we do not believe it would injure
any of the moniod interests of the
North. Now that little trouble in the
Philipines, which they have been
telling us for two or three years would
soon bo over, is a moro serious matter
than this Reciprocity business, and
one more likely to react against them.
It is strikingly similar to Banquo's
Ghost?it won't down. Those confer
ences are sufficiently amusing anyway,
and it is not reported that Teddy is
losing any sleep over them.
The war against the Boers still goes
on. It reminds us of that seven years
war Britain waged against the thir
teen united colonies, which resulted in
the establishment of this mighty na
tion, and in this war the same inglorious
results to British urms seem probable.
Lately these God-fearing psalm-sing
ing, devoted Burghers captured Me
theun, a British ofllcer, and because he
was seriously wounded, magnanimous
ly and graciously released him to be
cared for by his own men. Nothing
tho British havo done equals this for
its humaneness or magnanimity. And
strange to say, our great Government
refuses to ask tho British authorities
permission to a1 low private parties to
send supplies to suffering humanity In
South Africa. On the face of it, pri
vate parties are allowed to sell mules
to tho British army officials for use In
this very war. It is possible that the
greed for gold?the chaso for the al
mighty dollar?has so everlastingly
taken hold of us that all our altruistic
sentiments, humanitarian sympathies
have been crushed in the ceaseless mill
of monopolistic corporations, trusts,
etc., that, we cannot awaken to the
needs of tho suffering and oppressed?
Rome, Greeco, Carthage and Spain
fell, and the United States-, we ask
Carrie Nation has subsided; the
Schley-Sampson controversy is settled;
tho Crown Prince has gone baek home;
the excitcmont over tho fisticuff in the
Unitod Statos Senate has quieted down;
Nephew Jim hasn't had anything to
say lately; Mrs. vtone has been releas
ed by tho Brigand*; and we can breath
a little easier. However, the Charles
ton Exposition, the best ever held
South of Mason and Dixon's line, still
attracts attention as it deserves to.
The 20th inst , Carolina day will bring
thousands of our people together in
hietorio old Charleston, and they can
learn from, as well as marvel, at the
South's wonderful industrial expansion.
Every man, woman and ohild in I.au
reus county should take in the Expo
sition and Charleston.
The politloal caldron throughout the
State, and the county as well, is begin
ning to simmer. The candidates are
already numerous for eaeh and every
ofllco, and by the time tho campaign
opens up, tbey will be as thick as tho
stars. It is hoped the best men win
be elected to office. This State needs
to be rid of the two-by-four politician
and fiery tounged designing demo
goguo. When strong, clean, honest,
broadmlnded men, mon of force and
character, are placed In the high offices
of dignity and trust, we will have
peace and harmony, and can work out
our industrial destiny with greater
confidence and ease.
The Beet Sugar Industry is raising a
mighty howl abc rcduolng the Cuban
Tariff, Its champions assert that if
Reciprocity be granted, such as Is con
templated, this Industry will be wiped
off the face of tho Earth. Yet nearly
fifty millions addltionul capital Is about
to go Into beet sugar manufacturing.
How then is it porsiblo that the field
is so inviting If thero is no profit In It?
We do not' marvel at this argument,
we think it is absurd.
Now that ex Gov. Altgold, of Illinois,
is dead, the press throughout the
country are saying just lots of fine
things about him. They took occasion
while he yet lived to score him for al
most every political sentiment he ever
uttered; but he was of that strong,
hardy type that oared not for the
plaudits of men, and feared not the
consequences to himself when his
duty to the public convinced him
that certain acts wero wise and
expedient. He was an independent,
candid man, having the courage of bis
convictions, and as ? fitting finale to
his rugged, up hill life, ho died just
after delivering a powerful pro-Boer
argument. He was a splendid example
of a self-made man.
The Charleston Exposition seems to
be growing in popularity as it truly
deserves to do. The attendance we are
informed is dally increasing. To
morrow is Carolina Day, and 'it be
hooves every man, woman and child
who can possibly do so, to be there at
that time. Every person who has vis
ited the Exposition proolaims it to be
the best ever held in the South. It is
an education in itself, for nowhere
else can ono learn, of the resources,
progress and possibilities of this South
lend of ours better than at this great
industrial Exhibition. It shows what
marvelous advances we have made and
what wonderful strides In the march
of progress we can and undoubtedly
will make from now on.
The decision of the United States
Supreme Court that declared the Illi
nois Anti-Trust law unconstitutional
because the farming and wool indus
tries were not included in the scope of
its operations, effectually makes waste
paper of similar laws in thirteen other
States, our neighbors, Georgia and
North Carolina being among them.
This proves that tho farming class of
our people are not only the backbone of
our Republic, but that the legislator
who would not have his law become an
historical relic, must not omit the
farmer from bis considerations. He
must realize that the farmer Is of moro
consequence than some people seem to
Our goverment is about to vacate
Cuba, and let the Islanders work
out thter destiny for themselves. It
strikes us that the Cubans were not
bettered in their condition very mate
rially when they chanced to have the
yoke of Spain taken from them and
placed under the maternal care ot this
great government. They are hardly
bettor off In the "frying pan" than
they were in the ??fire " At any rate
when our military regime has finished
with them there will be scarcely any
blood left in the turnip. Our older
citizens may remember something
about a carpet bag rule.
The Senate has passed the Ship Sub
sidy Bill by a vote of 42 to 31. Thus a
big steal is sanctioned. The ship com
panies may new stick their paws into
the treasury and take out a handsome
slice of that surplus. It seems to have
bothered the Republicans anyhow, but
possibly their fears will be assuaged
when they see the raids made on Uncle
Sam's Btrong box. Senator McLaurln
voted for the measure. That fact,
however, is not startling.
The past week has been favorable to
work on the farms. From the amount
of commercial fertilizers hauled away
from here every day, we would think
think the cotton acreage will bo fully
as large, if not larger, than usual. We
should bear in mind that a very large
cotton crop at 6 cents is about as bad
as a half crop at 9 cents. Diversified
farming will p\v better.
Congress has done one sensible thing
lately at any rate. It decided not to
put the Rural Free Delivery under the
contract system. Doubtless had it
done so the Star Route scandals would
have been repeated, and the service
which is now surpassing all expecta
tions, would have been seriously im
