LAURKNS, S. C, June IN, 1902.
Campaign isBuesare necessary to any
party. The Democratic party may not
hurt Itself by clamoring for tho sur
render of the Philippines. Tho Re
publicans already have a secure grip
on the othor side of the question. Dut
the Domocratscanuotwin on this "par
amount issue" of tho last campaign.
The American people has made up its
mind to thresh the Filipinos into sub
jection and to hold the Philippine
islands. That is a quostlon settled.
Tho country cannot bo aroused or ex
cited about it.
A farmer who owns ton acres of red
gullies will fight to tho death before
he will surrender a foot of them. The
Amorlcan pooplo as u budy feel the
same way. The othics of tho Philip
pine quostlon will not be oxamined by
the average voter. The voter as a rule
does not study othics, astronomy or the
tangles of moral philosophy.
The Democratic side of the contro
versy is worth while only as text for
stump orators to shout upon. Of course
the Democrats can carry Laurens coun
ty, South Carolina and the South on
any old Issue or no issue. The South
is going Democratic unanimously any
how but the National Democratic party
will merely waste energy and fan tho
air whilo the Republicans chuckle so
long as It shrieks for Philippine in
dependence. Wo aro not discussing
the right or wrong of the matter but
our "Paramount issue" is empty sound,
so far as It will alTect politcal results.
On tho other hand, it is good policy
for tho Domocrats to harass the Re
publicans about tho cruelties practiced
by American troops and the corruption
of American civil officials.
In our judgemont tho trust question
Is not approached in an intelligent
manner. The trust is a symptom, not
a disease. When a man falls down
sick In the stroet the doctor does not
cure him by lifting him to his feet. Tho
man lifted would fall down again. The
doctor seeks the cauao of tho trouble
and Its remedy. In tho Gamo way, if
the Democrats will devoto themselves
to removing tho special privileges that
mako trusts possible and to placing
upon the trusts burdens of taxation
that they ought to bear, something
may in time bo accomplished. Protec
tion is chielly responsible for trusts.
In other words, tariff for revenue only
should bo now, as It once was, the para
mount issue. In coming* to this con
clusion most Democrats would have to
swallow a bitter dose. They would In
so doing acknowledge that Grovor
Cleveland, the only man who has led
the party to victory since the Civil
War, was right all along and that they
were wrong all along. By their silonce
in tho conventions, they are acknowl
edging now that Cleveland was right
on tho money question. They had as
well acknowledge In the same way that
he was right on tho tariff question, an
Issue which, while practically aban
doning, they havo never in terni9 re
pudiated. One of tho sorrowful inci
dents of the times is that constant din
ning by foolish loaders has compelled
the people to believe that Mr. Cleve
land is a kind of monster, a beast, a
Caliban. Wo suspect that there are
many Democrats who would like to see
"Old Cleveland" lynched and would
help lynch him. But Thk ADVER
TISER believe? now as It has for years
that ho is tho wisest and honestest lea
der that the party has had since 1805
and that to accept him as a loader
again, not as a candidate, would mean
inoro for tho good of the Democratic
party than any other thing conceiva
Candidates and Their Cards.
Candidates sometimes raise the point
that tho multiplication of nowspapers
has made tho publishing of announce
ment cards a 6ovoro tax upon them.
Laurens county has five secular news
paper and the announcements In tho
aggregate oost each candidate $15.00
if his name appears in each. Unques
tionably, it is a sevore tax, ospocially
upon a candidate for an office which
pays a small salary. For example,
$15.00 Is about eight or ten por cent of
a legislator's annual earnings. What
Is to bo done about It? Shall tho
newspapers reduce tho fees? They
will hardly consent to that. Three
dollars is a dlminutivo rato. A news
paper must rocoivo a reasonable price
for space or cease to exist, or at least
to exist respectably. The remody lies
with tho candidates. Wo think that
thoy aro wrong in regarding thomsoves
compelled to advortiso In five papers.
In saying this wo may bo hurting our
own interests because wo profit by tho
custom which, In this county, prevails
among almost all candidates to adver
tise In all papers but wo do not wish
any candldato to Imagine that he Is
forced to advertlso in this paper.
When a candidato places his name in
one or two influential and gonorally
circulated papers in Laurens and keeps
It there two or three months every
body in the county in bound to find out
that he is running. Every man in the
county who reads a paper at all is very
llkoly to read two or three issues of
this paper several times during the
campaign, whether ho is a subscriber
or not. Of course If there be two pa
pers representing opposing ideas in
politics and having to a degree differ
ent political fallowings, tho discerning
candidate is likely to see the wisdom of
appealing to both through their res
pective favorite papers. But it seems
absurd to snppose that a candidate
must necessarily advertise in a multi
tude of newspapers because they are
here and eaoh has a circulation.
Moreover, the ehewd politician will
place his oard in the distinctively pol
itical newspaper that has Ideas and
speaks out on poHtloal matter;:. The
Advertiser, for examplVis a politi
cal newspaper, it believes n| talking
politics beoause the people fln# politics |
an interesting toplo. Now no candi
date finds it needful to print his adver
tisement in our valuable aud widely
circulated contemporary, the Southern
Presbyterian, wbioh is published in
this county. People do not look over
Its pages for political news. They do
not expeot to find it in them. Ia tho
same way, they do not seek political
information in a secular newspaper
which has no opinions, or whose opin
ions are colorless, tsateless and odor
less like certain gases. Really, tho
healthy people of this county despise
skimmed milk anyhow and there isn't
a Tillmanlte in Laurens who doesn't
prefer The Laukens Advertiser
with all Us iniquities to a paper that
sprinkles sweetened water through Its
Moreover, no candidate need fear the
influence of a newspapor small enough
to take offence because it does not re
ceive throe dollars worth of advertis
ing from him. A newspaper is of
course not under obligations to adver
tise or discuss a candidate who does not
pay for advertising In it but a news
puper having an editor who will be
influenced in his vote by such a con
sideration Is after all not worth a
?'chaw of torbacker." We do not
think any of the Laurens county news
paper men aro of such sort. This year
all the candidates are in most of the
papers. Wo are glad of it because we
are perhaps a few dcllaro better off
therefor. But we hope that so far
as this paper Is concerned no one will
advertise in It In future for fear of
offondlng It by omitting to do so or
who thinks he is not able to pay it
three dollars for a card.

county. He would make a good ofllcer.
He stands well in Greenville and made
an excellent county Treasurer.
A. W. Jones who is running for
Comptroller was also here last week.
Ho Is an Abbeville man and a compe
tent, bright fellow. In 1894 he would
have been elected Comptroller over
Norton but the Pope independent move
ment defeated him. It was this way:
an element of Pecdee reformers wore
disgruntled. Tho reformers generally
didn't care at first. Jones was assured
of election. Tho reform convention
met and did not nominate minor officers.
Meanwhile the independent movement
began and the reform loaders thought
it necessary to conciliato tho Peedee
crowd. Tho convention met again and
Jones was duly sacrificed. Another
was sacrificed with him.

The City Schools' Corps has
Now been Completed.
Misses Lillian Miller, Lllller stem-,
Helen Uoggans and Josephine
McSwaln the New Teachers.
Last Wednesday afternoon the Trus
tees of the City Schools completed the
roll of teachers for the white school by
electing the following : Mien Josephine
McSwain of Cross Hill, Miss fielen
Goggans of Newberry, Miss Lllller
Stevens of Kock Hill and Miss Lillian
Miller of Laurens. All of these are
exceptionally well recommended. The
selection of Miss Miller is particularly
gratifying to the patrons of the school.
She Is a graduate of the schools and of
Converse Collego and for three years
has been a highly succesful teacher in
Bennettsvllle. Indeed, she has earned
a reputation among teachers and su
?erintendents throughtout the State.?
'he writer taught for a week or two
during the illness of one of tho teachers
here some years ago and remembers
her as an uncommonly bright girl.
Miss Stevens graduated at Winthrop
in normal school in 1809 and has beon
teaching at Hamberg and Hock Hill
Miss McSwain graduated In literary
and normal courses at Winthrop and
? has just lintshed a throo years course
at the Woman's Collego, Baltimore.
She is the daughter of tho late Mr. Lu
cius MoSwain. It Is especially pleasing
that this bright young Laurens woman
Is to be employed In Laurens. She be
longs to a talonted family.
Mi.-:. Goggans stands at the head of
the class graduating this year at Win
throp. She has the highest recom
mendations from trio president and her
Tho teachers re-elected are: Miss
Perrln Farrow, Mrs. Corlnno Fuller,
Miss Maude Inez Tlllman, Miss Emily
Meng and Miss Mary Miller. All have
had experience and are well trained
and etliclent. Superintendent Jones
was aleo re-electod at a recent meeting.
Tho trustees believe that they have
succeeded in obtaining an unusually
able head for tho schools as woll as
corps of teachers?the whole compar
ing favorably with the school system
of any town in the country.
It Is much regretted that Mr. W. C.
Irby, Jr., did not apply for re-election
as principal. He was decidedly a suc
cessful teacher and gave entire satis
faction to the trustees and to the pub
lic. Of course he would have been re
elected had he applied. He will prob
ably teach elsewhere, and tho school
securing his services will be fortunate.
The City Schools have also lost good
and popular teachers In Mrs. Benja

home in Gray Court, Saturday and was
buried at Gray Court on the following
day. She was one of tho host women
In tho county and though she had
reached the age of about 82 her loss
will be jftroatly felt. Her example was
a ble?slng to her community,
Mre. Dorroh was a daughter of Rev.
S. B. Lewers who founded the First
Presbyterian Church hero and that of
Rockv Springs. Seven children sur

I CLIMBING THE JULY GRADE. |

A Spartanburg lawyer stepped lato
the office of the master in equity.
"Mr. Master," ho said, "are you ready
to pay out that money in Doe against
"No," the master replied, -"can't
pay out a copper till the court issues
"Well", sighed the lawyer, "that's
mighty bad uowp. I depended on that
little fee to get me over the July
We^-we moan most of ua- are at tho
"July Grade." This year the grade
has been changed, advanced. We
arrived at the grade two or three
The "July grade" is that dry time of
the year when money hides. In these
f>arts it comes evory year?when the
ast little rivulet and fountain from
which a dollar may be dipped up seems
to have disappeared. It la tho time
when one Hees from his brother man,
taking it (or granted that he is collect
ing water rents or ha i a doadly tele
phone bill concealed on his person.
It is that out-of-joint annual period
when if you aro a doctor or a tailor or
newspaper man you dare not present a
bill to any fellow citizen and when
you, boing a humane person, would not
if you dared. It is tho time when you
see your overdraft ilourish like a
gourd-vine and you seek to borrow
thirty for a two weoks trip mountain
ward. That trip is a groat help. Your
doctor, if he is a good doctor, says it's
absolutely necessary. \'ou go and
come home Improved ' You praise the
climate but the doctor knows that you
have gained two pounds a day because
'ou have not bad to fight the bill col
lector. He knows you have managed
to dodge tho July grade.
"It must bo mighty pleasant", said
an old gentleman here somo years ago,
with deep solemnity, "to live close to
the North Pole."
"Why?" ho was asked.
"Because when a collector hands you
a little bill in the morning you can tell
him to come around in the afternoon
and you'll pay It?and the days aro six
months long there!"
Wo bavo all to climb this July grade
and it aeems steeper this year than
ever before. Last week a friond of
The Advertiser wandered into the
olllce and paid three dollars. He was
one of our old roliablo subscribers, as
safe as a bank but ho bad fallen a little
behind. He paid a long tlmo in ad
vance last week. It was tho strangest
action wo have ever heard of for the
time of year. Now und then a man
pays one dollar in the summer but,
think of it, this gentleman paid throe
on subscription in June. We shall
never get entirely over it. If others
of our subscribers contemplate follow
ing bis example, we hope they will not
approach the subject abruptly. When
they corao into the office, letthom lead
up to it gontly, drop a few hints and
first suggest paying twenty-five cents.
Then let them raise their figures, if
they wish, to fifty. In ton minutes
they may suggest handing us a dollar
and after half an hour'a chat about
trade and collections and potato bugs,
crop9 and politics, we may bo pre
pared to accept the three without
swooning. In this way, tho benevo
lent subscriber may doubly favor us.
To throw threo dollars at us at this
season is to overwhelm us beyond tho
point of acute enjoyment but when the
subscriber plays with tho paying pro
cess and slowly and surely wo see his
ideas grow bigger, wo have timo to
gloat and thrill properly.
The ostoenied water rent man, the
telephone man, also tho pastor'd salary
man, need not flatter themselves about
the three dollars referred to. Thoy
are too lato. The money was paid last
week and while three dollars will do
a world of good works in those days, it
can't lust always. In fact it has do
parted. Speaking of water rout, a
friend tells us that thoy threaten to
cut otT his supply. We have advised
to let them cut it off. Perhaps he can
connect with tho di9nen8ary.
Howsomever, we'll all climb this
July grado. Wo always do. Let's dis
miss the thoughts of It. Tncy are
painful. In October tho cotton will
begin to roll in abundantly and black
berry pies will come meanwbilo,--sinco
! it has rained.
