LAURENS, H. C, Not. 10, 1904.
The postmasters in South Carolina
are tot oorap'ainlng about the election
If the trusts bought the Roosevelt
majorities it is safe to say that the
trusts a-o "busted."
For the first time since 1870 a
"bolter" and "indop^ndont" has been
elected to office in South Carolina. Mr.
Walker of Greenville is a recotd
. JAv. Waller of Greenville may have
been justM declaiming that he was
cheated out of the pri-i ary nomination
In Greouvlile but two years hence
some may cry fraud whether thoro be
fraud u not.
It is to bj hoped that th's General
Assembly will have sufficient intelli
gence to crea:e two now Judicial Clr
oult*. Tho population of the State has
doub'ed since the provision fir eight
Circuits was made. Tho State is filled
with special judges, pome ot whom are
fit and some of whom are unfit.
Unhss tho lawyer candidates ?h?
may be m:mbers of the General A?
bembly ki 1 tho next bill for additional
Circuits the bill will become law.?
Soores of lawyer* fear that In arrang
ing the new Oircuits no provision wl 1
bo made fur themselves for Judgeships
or So Ic-tor.-diips. But for this, the new
Circuits wou'd probably have been es
tablished long ago.
The election of this man Roosevelt
and the triumph of his party is a per
son al misfortune to us Southern people
In three ways especially,?as well ns in
In the first p'ace, It means a c >n
tlnued high tariff and that means we
must pay more for most of the things
wo buy th^in thev arc worth
In the s^coid, this Roosevelt has no
better sooso seemingly than to appoint
negroes to office. He msy do this for the
want of sense or ho may ben dirty,
spiteful bad follow. We are not prepared
to *ay which be is. If be does appoint
negroes to office here aud there, it will
make trouble. Southern peoplo will
not "stand for It." It makes us Pick to
contemplate tho killing i f a poor, fool
negro politician. We do not approve
of the beating or biuisingof a negro
merely because bo may bold an office.
Hut the boatings and bruising and kill
ings will take piace whether we ap
prove it or not. There is a town in
South Carolina called Lake City and
there are many South Carolina towns
mucli like Lake City. We do not like
to think of the miserable, nasty trouble
that a fool president may cause.
In tho third place, we regret that
Roosevelt's election will enab'e a
small numbar of white men who have
bartered their allegiance to their kind
to hold office in this State.
The Cherokee Vote.
Cherokee county voted the dispen
sary out of the county. Tho prohibi
tionists knew that they were voting a
tax upon themselves. They understood
fully that the laws of South Carolina ai
now written in the statute books pun
ishes by fine those counties which dare
to opposo the Tillinan wbltkfy ma
chine. Tho Cherokee prohibitionists
are honest and earnest in what ihey
Tho f .rmers in South Carolina have
always been prohibitionists. They
voted for prohibition in 1892. Th?-y
were promised prohibition if It shcu'd
have a majority in tho special boxes at
the primary of 1802. After the general
assembly met Sonator Tillman, being
afraid of prohibition compelled his
Legislature to convert the State Into a
whiskey-selling concern. Senator Till
inan hes been sustained in his acts,
good and bad as a rule. Nevertheless,
the people of Cherokee, have, In spite
of the Senator's whiskey ppeoch in
G?ffney, voted the dispensary out of
the county. What tho Senator will do
to tho people of Cherokee we do not
know. Wo rather fancy that his dis
pensary frionds will see to it that p o
hihltion has a tough time in Cherokee.
It will be easy to distribute samples In
Cherokee. It will bo worth while to
tho dispensary gang, backed by many
whiskey houses in other State*, to en
deavor to drown tho prohibitiou icntl
moot of Cherokee county. We shall
not be surpaised if "blind tigers" bo
eet up in business throughout Cherokee
The hardest task is before the Chero
kee people. They have won only the
preliminary ekirrai-h against the dis
pensary. Tho dispensary will maintain
an incessant and insidious attack upon
the prohibition forces. The Cherokee
people made tho first breach in the]
d'spensary wall. Tho dispensary gang
v HI be qniok to sec that their institu
tion is threatened and they wlil resort
to every imaginable device to demon
strate that prohibition In Cherokee Is

Mr. Editor: The newspapers
are constantly deploying the law
lessness in this country. They
seem to dwell only on the taking
of human life, losing sight of the
fact that "appetite grows by what
it feeds upon" and that the
greater crimes are only the result
of the early spirit of lawlessness
being allowed full swing.
Now, Mr. FMitor, public senti
ment is what makes laws effect
ive, and public sentiment should
frown on every kind of legal
transgression. We have laws on
our statute books today which are
entirely disregarded, our people
are uuwilling that they be re
pealed, yet no one seems to think
any the less of the transgressor.
One of the especial matters
that has been brought to my at
tention is that of trespass. The
law provides that the landowner
may advertise his premises and
forbid any person going on same
?when such is done then the
person who goes upon same with
out permission is a law breaker;
because they do so openly and de
fiantly does not make them less
so. The land owner may not re
sort to the law, because they and
their friends are probably his
friends, but does that warrant a
person in taking advantage of
such relationship and breaking
the law? Do they for one mo
ment suppose that a person is go
ing to pay your paper for an ad
vertisement just to see his name
in the paper? Do they think they
are so much "It" that you can't
Now, Mr. Editor, very few peo
ple are entirely blameless, but
young boys especially are very
presuming in such matters, and
persons who hunt are not always
Evidently our "Foamier" friend
has a grievance, but he is not by
himself. The trouble is so many
people?white people?fail to see
the distinction between public
and private property, and some
town people come in for a

The buy//. Tu Tlio robin ceased, and all
eyes looked at the tawny old nohlenuin,
hla features working with wruth. Hen*
ry'a lingers were tight closed, and
Anne's white teeth hit her Under lip till
a spot of blood came upon It.
All lu that room knew the old man.
Many loved him. Not n few held louse
upon his land. He was one of the lust
brave barons who bore, his name, for
the most part, whether crusaders or
poets, men gentle, reckless und mindful
of God?men who lived cleanly lives
and died commending their souls to
Jesus and bequeathing torches and
sheep for their funerals. He was n
man every Inch of him! Ho blamed the
king's ministers, but he loved the king.
At the leer Foy gave him some half
roso angrily, but others, of the lower
sort, scenting what wns coming, slyly
winked and smiled behind their palms.
"One could scarce be too severe with
such a bloody knave, my lord."
"He should rot In Tyburn!" blnaed
the old man.
"Swelp mo I" cried Foy with a coarso
laugh. "And who, gentlemen, think
you was this hangman's cur, this dirty
factious scoundrel? Why, Colonel
Washington, 1' faith?turncoat since
the French warl"
There wore murmurs at this from all
sides, even from these Tories, at the
trap that hud been set, at the wanton
affront to a friendship that had been
well known throughout the colony
since the days when Lawrence Wash
ington first brought sweet Anne Fair
fax from Belvotr to Mount Vernon.
"Hound!" ground Henry between hla
teeth. A cold hand seemed pressed up
on Anne's heart.
The stanch old loyalist's face bad
turned a grny white. He half choked,
and his hand went fumbling to the luce
at his throat. He was silent for n mo
ment, his great brows together, bis
fingers on the arm of the chair clasping
and unclasping, while Foy sneered
audibly In the quiet.
"Not Georgel" ho faltered at length.
Something almost like a dry sob es

There was n little stir In the place,

young man arose In the back part of
the room and bowed gracefully. It
was M. Armand, and he held a slender

The Grover Graham Dyspepsia Remedy is sold under a positive
guarantee that it will cure Dyspepsia, Heartburn, Gastritis or any
form of stomach disorder, no matter how-chronic or severe. The
very first dose removes all distress, tones the weak stomach, pre
vents fermentation and restores digestion. Every nerve and fiber
of the body depends upon the stomach for its support. When di
gestion ceases a slow form of starvation begins, and the vital or
gans, deprived of their subsistance, become debilitated. Good di
gestion is essential to health, proper assimilation of nourishment
means pure, rich blood, strong nerves, sound,tdeep and makes life
worth living. The most chronic case of stomach disorder is imme
diately corrected by our remedy.
