On more than one ocoaslon hereto
fore The Advertiser bas called at
tention to the wisdom of all people who
havo spare dollars depositing them iu
the banks where they are safest from
burglars and incendiaries. We do not
care to repea t the arguments?but they
hold good all the time.
To Improve Free Delivery.
To make the free rural delivery ser
vice of the greatest value to those
whom it serves should be and doubtless
is tho aim of the post ollico depart
ment. This value would be materially
Increased If on many#routes the mat's
could be delivered in the afternoons In
stead of in the mornings. As a rule
the farmord receive a great deal more
mall than thoy send and for that paya
ble reason the hours of delivery rather
than the hours of taking up the malls
should be first considered. Therefore,
it Eoems that there should be no fixed
rule as to tho hours at which the carriers
leave the distributing point but those
hours should be determined by the ar
rival of tho mall trains. To illustrate:
If the daily papers from Columbia,
Charleston aud Augusta are delivered
by train at Waterloo or Mountvillo at
noon the carriers should make their
trips in the afternoons si that persons
living on tho routes could receive daily
papers on the day they are published.
At present most of the carriers leave
in the oarly morning and the conse
quence Is that nearly all dally malls
are delivered a day late.
We do not mean to suggest that car
riers should be compelled to leave at un
reasonable hours. Wo should not
wish that a carrier be forced to leave at
4 o'clock in the afternoon in winter,
which would compel him to bo out
long after night, but it happens that
there are several routes in this county
the convenience of which to the farm
ers would hi vastly enhanced if the
carriers began to deliver somewhere
between the hours of noon and 2 o'clock
In the afternoon.
It is possible that this matter could
be taken up with tho department at
Washington by tho member of congress
from this district with marked result
The Pitifully Powerless Commission.
Tho passenger depot in this town was
located during the existence of a rail
way commission and it has continued
and is continuing a standing menace to
life, limb and property while railway
commissioners draw salaries. Of course
it is not the fault of the railway com
missioners. They do their best. The
pity is that the railway commission is
so pitifully helpless. The explanation
is perhaps that the railway commission
has not power enough nnder the Jaw.
We fear that the railway commission is
the most powerless creature that the
law-makera have succeeded in devis
ing. Assuming that the members of
the commission are rational, that they
have as much intelligence as the com
mon run of men, their incapacity to
remedy a situation like this at Lau
rens, their inability to cause the re
moval of a nuisance and a death trap,
must be an ever present source to them
of sorrow and humiliation. To be re
sponsible to the people for their safety
and impotont to correct so shameful a
neglect of duty as is shown by tho rail
roads in this matter of the Laurens
passenger dopot, wou'd make it difficult
for self-respecting men to accept and
hold the office of railway commissioner.
If the laws clothe the railway commis
sion with no power to abato a flagrant
peril to the public, then the railway
commission is useless and worse than
Repeal the Lien Law.
If tho thrifty, hard-working and
debt-paying farmers of Laurens who
are ambitious to improve their condi
tion and leave something tn their
children are wise they will insist upon
sending members to the legislature
who will vote to repeal the lien law. It
is necessary to ropeal the lien law in
order that the farmers may control
their labor. Porhaps tho law should
be repealed gradually. An act might
be passed limiting tho amount of liens
for ono year, fixing a lower limit for
tho next and again lower for tho next
with completo abolition of the eystem
after four or five years. In this way
the poorest people could adapt them
selves to the chango without suffering
hardship or even inconvenience. It is
the poor man, tho man who has no
property who would be the chief
gainor in the end. With the Hen sys
tem eliminated, ho wou'd find that he
could buy oheapar, that he wou'd no
longer suffer from the great profits
that merchants are compelled to
Charge in order to protect themselves
from the improvident and unreliable,?
provided of course ho showed a disposi
tion to meet hisobligatlons. Under the
present system the honest and hard
working man is often compelled to pay
two prices for goods in order to mako
up to the merchants the losses which
the latter suffer from tho Idlers and
dead-beats. On a number of Hen cus
tomers every merchant must and does
lose. In flx'ng his profits he must allow
for his average losses. Consequently,
tho industrious class is contributing all
the time to tho support of dead-beats?
that is what it "comes to." When the
time arrives that the merchants will
soil to tho idlers only for cash (which
the repeal of tho lion law would effect)
the losses will cease and the merchants
will be glad to have tho trade of the
industrious and to make only small
profits upon it. There Is always keea
competition for the man who is prompt
to pay whether ho can give security or
Thousands of our people have thep
noses to the grindstone because they
are indirectly preyed upon by their
tiulped The Dose and Baa to Cover.
Tub Advertiser would not detract
from the good work done by "Brave
Ben Ttllman" when iu the St. Louis
Convection he turned bis back 01 Bryan
and all his works, swallowed tbo gold
standard, gulped down the slanders
that he uttered a few years ago agalu&t
gold Democrats and freely, loudly aod
effectively gave his fine speaking pow
ers to acqulesoenco in the Parker tele
gram. In that Convention, Ben Till
'rnan, nullifying himself, making the
tens of thousands who trustod him in
South Carolina eight years ago know
that they had been misled and be
fooled by him, was a useful figure.
There is no denying that Tillman was
most influential in driving the Conven
tion to swallow the gold standard and
there was no denying that he was right.
Moreover, he was probably houest in
his view. Whethor or not ho was hon
est in 1806 when he swore by all the
gods known to his elastio vocabulary
that all political rlghteousnoss was in
volved in "16 to 1 or bust" and that all
others were hirelings of a Wall street
robber band Is another aod a hopo
lessly different question. It Is the re
ligion of some men to b l'ove in his
honesty through all the t?ugled twist
ing* of the most devious p th that any
South Carolina politician evt r trod.
With theso wo have no eontent'on. In
national affairs the jrowd today is for
tbo gold standard. Benj wniu f lows
the crowd. In South Carolina the
crowd, or a largo part of it, fol'ows
But while this gllb-tongued paltcrer
with all principles was ab'y defending
tho gold standard and loading the Con
vention to sanity?let us suppose for an
instant that he hadn't that he had
persisted in tho vulgar and disorderly
"damns" which ho bestowed on Parker
when the news of the te'egram was
first received. It will be remembered
that he "cussed" sonorously and grand
ly at first and of course iu the hearing
of tho newspaper reporters. Had he
persisted, what would have happened?
Why he would have presented tho bed
raggled spectacle of a so-called leader
discredited and repudiated by his own
delegation. Under the unit rule, oven
his vote would have counted against
his utterances. Much and mightily
could ho have "cussed" but the men
whose voices would have mado South
Carolina felt in the Convention woro
Duncan Clinch Heyward, Goodwin
Rhett, Coker, Aiken, Springs, Sawyer,
I McGee, Smith, Tindal, Moses, McColl
and McLeod and perhaps others.
The simple truth is that without in
cluding any of the delegates at large a
majority of the delegation wore gold
bugs and In no sense under Tillinan's
influence. They were not and have
never been his political friends. Num
bers of tbem were at heart Grover
Cleveland men. South Carolina would
have stood by the Parker telegram
though Benjamin bad "cussed" the
roof of the coliseum to tho Congo Free
So Benjamin's "cussing"' ceased. John
Sharp Williams pointed tho way and
apt Benjamin, with one glance at the
lash of the South Carolina delegation,
qulvoring above sneaked to cover in a
quick trot and got busy being good.
A lovely spectacle ho would have
made in chorus or "cussing'* with
Weaver, the populist, and tbo balance of
the Convention with the South Carolina
delegation laughing at him!
Who in such circumstances would
hesitate to swallow all his years of bad
languago and stultify himself to boot?
The sincere free sliver people who had
trusted hiuo down in Soutli Carolina
might go to the demlnltions. "Bravo
Ben" was in a corner. He had to get
out with as much dignity as possible.
And he did very decently.
Parker aud Davis.
When the St. Louis Conveuti in nom
inated Judge Alton B. Parker for
President, wo believe that it did for tho
Democratic party the best thing possi
ble. Perhaps in more than one sonse
it was the dawn of a better day for the
Democracy and the country
The Convention, at tho instance of
W. J. Bryan?doubtless an honest and
sincere man of strangely foolish no
tions?bad refused to doclaro for tho
gold standard though bent on nominat
ing a gold candidate Such is the
freakishness of human nature. Iu the
afternoon of the day of the nomination
Judge Parker telegraphed tho Conven
tion that lie was a gold standard man,
that he wished tho Convention to koow
it and if they wished to act upon it by
nominating some other who was not,
they were still free so to do.
Judge Parker knew well that only a
gold man had any chance to carry
Eastern State?. He knew that tbo re
fusal of the Convention to declare for
the gold standard would be the first
point of attack for tho Republican
party. Indoed on Saturday morn
ing the great Republican papers,
such as the New York Tribune,
began this attack, 'declaring that
the position of Doraosraey as to
silver was declared in tho plat
forms of 1896 and 1000 and that thoso
platforms were stiil of force bocause
tho Convention of 11)01 had refused to
reject them. Having the burdon of the
fight upon him Judge Parkor sent his
te'egram?destined to bo his'oric?and
drove, compelled, cornered, pilloried
the uncertain Convention into an atti
tude of endorsing a gold standard can
didates in that character sharply do'
I fined and almost defiantly proclaimod.
Judge Parker vory well understood
that tho Convention could not "back I
down." To surrender the nomination
would be to invite chaos, to doclare
again for fd'ver and so commit party
suicide. It was merciless on the part
of Judge Parker but it was right. It
was a bitter dose tha'? he hold to the
nose of Bryan and T llman and all of
their stamp, but ho would havo beon
trilling with his party, and com
promising himself to have dono
otherwlso. it was imperative
that ho silonce the charge that
"Die Democrats had dodged the money
issue" and silence it he did.
When the Parkor telegram becamo
public in St. Louis that keen-witted
man of common sense, John Sharp
Williams, instantly saw the whole
situation. There was nothing to do ex
cept to tell Judge Parkor that the
Convention would take him with all
his olearcut gold standard views. Wil
liams set himself at once to the task of
.accomplishing th's with us little frio

found the situapou too big. InstautJy
that tho telegram was received ho had
begun to "cuss." What it all meant ho
really diJ cot perceivo?a National
Convention Is beyond a Tillman's
depth? so he floundered around and
talked like a rag baby in "cuss wordj"
?to reporters. He always talks to re
porters. Then Mr. Williams and Da
vid I >. Hill took him aside to a quiet
OOrner a d lot tho light into his poor,
puzzled head. Whereupon ourTillmuu
becumo useful. With a guido like Wil
liams our Tillman's really ready tongue
Is a handy and effective tool. Properly
coached by Williams, the Till man
mastery of strong language was valua
ble in aiding tho Williams leadership
In doing tho only thing that could be
done. Wo do not mean to disparage
Senator Tillmun's ab.Iitv--he is u most

enough to eot tho averago crowd wild,

"Aliout five years ago I noticed a slight
eruption on my limbs, but in a very short
time 1 was a sight to behold, from my head
to my fcjt, and my nights were terrible. I
was simply on fire. I tried a number of
doctors here in this city, but with absolutely
no rcstdts aside from easing the burning
pain a little. A friend of mine who had
hecn cured of a very bad case of Eczema
by the 1). D. D. Remedy advised me to
try it, which I did, feeling good results
from the first. I have been using the
D. D D. Remedy for about three months,
using in all, about fifteen bottles, and to
day I am a well man. I also had dandruff
in its worse form, and found the D. D. D.
Remedy to be a wonder in curing this
disease." F. M. NICHOLS,
