Columbia, February 28.-The trip of
the Press Association to Cuba Is an op,
portunity for the editors to visit, Cuba
that nay not colc to thifagail soon.
Every editor who intends to go must
let mo hear from him not later than
the 8th of March, as it will take some
time to arrange transportation, and
then, too, we want to know how many
will be in the party. 1 should think
that $50 will cover actual expenses,
though there will be ample opportunity
to spend more. The trip will be made
over the Southern to Savannah, and
from there to Jacksonville over the
Plant System, and from .1 cksoni v lle to
Miaini over the East Coast, and at this
point we take the steamer for lavant.
It is to be confined to members of the
State lress associat ion or some mem
ber of the family.
The election for mayor and aldermen
of Columbia is to be held here next
Tuesday. 'Th1-re are four 1anndidiates
for mayor, and I u nulber in eaeh wa"d
who are seeking a'Jer manic honors.
The campaign thus far hats been very
qulet, and I suppose the electionecring
is done on the still hunt plan. No one
seems to know, or pretends to know, so
far its 1 have heard, how the election is
going. The present iicnttbent, Col.
T..i. J Lipscomb, Is t Newberry man,
and during his term there has been
wonderful advance umiade by the city.
It may have come Under any other ad
ministration, but the fact remains
that it cam1e under his. There is still
room for inprovement, and we all hail its
coning with delight, for every cit'.en
should feel a pride in the grow tii of the
Colunmbia has tine railroad facilities,
and when the Seaboard comes in her
railroad facilities will not be excelled
by any city in the South. From every
section of the State except the I'ied
mont there tre morning trains into Co
lumbia and afternoon trains out, and
why the business men should malke no
effort to get a 1moi'ling train ma froml the
up-country is more than I can orider
stand. Capt. ('hids knows mlore about
runn;ng his roads than I do, of course,
and I would not for one moment pie
so,me to Indiaete how Ie should nun lia
trains, but being its largely interested
as he is In Colnmbiat, I have never been
able to unde'stan( why he did not have
a m1orning triin into Columabia and na
afternoon trai-n out that would run att
least a nair passenger schedule. It
would be a very great accommodation
to the people from Columbia to Laurei0
and I reall e bel ievo would do mone pas
senger business than he does on the
passenger schedule that : e now oper
ates. A schedule that wr.Jd give the
people an opportunity to come to Co
lumbia in the morn ing and attend to
business and return bore the ramle
night and thus lose ony one day. I
have for a long time been an advocate
of suchI a schneduale. Elven a throud.

Since the Legislatu'o has gone every
thing political is rather quiet arnoundll
the State House and you hear very lit
tle political talk.
The p'-ohibitd.on address that was
issued the other daty has not heen d is
cussed. I have never been otne of those
who believe you can legislate maorals
or temperauce into peoll. Or~ that
you can make them sober and honest
by forco. If you want to stop the man
uifacture and sale of liquor you must
stop the drinking of It. You can't stop
the manufacture and sale as long as the
appetite and desire for drink remains
as it is. I may be mistaken, but I have
observed local effortsm at prohibition
and my observation has led me invari
ably to the conclusion thatt it was a fail
ure. You want to teach and instil tom
peranco and sobriety and tot,al absti
nonco, and when you get this then you
have as near prohib!tion as it can well
be desired. But prohibition by statu
tory enactment is imp)racticablo and
would result in failure even if it were

I feel a delicacy in referring to it again.

to impress t ho importanco of making
the farm home moro attractiv and
pleasant, and thus r11101 desirable as a
plac of residence. I am about to print
aln artielo from the Southern l"arm
\lagazine. It was written in response
to a letter from a young country lad
who w1uted the editor to. securo him
work o'lhor than on the farm. It is a
question for every young man who is
now working on the farm, whether or
not he will try to leave the farm in or
der to better his condition. Hero is
Thoro aro undoubtedly many oppor
tunities in industry awaiting young
men, but the young men must deide
for themselves whether they are quali
fled to seize the opportunities, and in
the catse of those engaged in farm work,
whether they will better their condi
tion by ehaiging tLheir occupation. If
the South is to become what it should
be it mllust draw largely upon its coun
try boys or uon thoso living inl the
smnallcr towns to etcuip its industrial
unlertak ings. There are country-bred
boys eminently litted to meet the de
mtand, and with increased opportunities
for inlustrial trairning there will be
ma11tny more. A yoUnig m11a1, however,
who has no more reiason for s.king
such employment, than heing tired of
workin at home will do well to consid
or carefully all the circutstitnces le

leave the coun try in pursuit, of easier

That one is a hardl w.wking boy is mu
excellent recommnendation, but the
question for himtt to decide Is whotIher
the results of hard work will or will
not be better in the country than in
tho town or city. A wii':o)gness to
work, though, is not all that is d
manded. Iii the article to which our
co'rrespondent refers the following
statements are mnade' "A cry is going
