Hottest Weather Ever Known.
Crops Suffering in Severa! States,
Where Only Local Rains Have

Memphis, Tenn., July 12.- This was
the warmest day of the year in the
central southern states. Many places
in western Tennessee, Arkansas, north

In Mississippi the heat was intense.
At Jackson, Vicksburg and Natchez
all records were broken. Crops, espe?

KANSAS PARCHED BY HEAT.
Corn Crop on Verge of Destruc?
tion and Grass Parched Up.
Kansas City, . Mo., July 12.-No
rain fell today in any part of the
drought stricken district, including
all of Kansas, western Missouri, Okla?
homa and Indian Territory. Over
much of this region this was the worst
day of the long hot spell, the tempera?
ture being more than 100 degrees, and
no breeze stirring. Corn, oats, hay and
potatoes are so badly injured that even
.with rain, the yield will be short, and
as the weather bureau gives no hope
of relief, the outlook is discouraging.
At some places in Kansas there has
been no rainfall whatever for nearly
three months. The present is the
worst drought since 1860, when New
England sent food to the settlers of
Kansas. However, Kansas farmers
are harvesting one of the largest crops
of wheat, if not the largest, in the
history of the state. A great many
counties send word that, with rain,
corn will be half crop : without rain
soon, no yield. A few say there is yet
hope for a fair harvest.
Hay sold this morning for 820 a ton
-one cent a pound-the highest price
ever reached in this market. This is
almost as much, pound for pound, as
wheat is worth. Receipts were very
In numerous places there is no pas

"deriving its just powers from t
consent of the governed" I do r
know what it is.
It may be urged that the wise sa
ings of Mencius have nothing to
with the present political creeds of t
Chinese people, and that the opinio
of the great sage on a political que
tion have only an academic intere:

Under the circumstances any unai

'interpretation of the passage is looke
upon as heretical, and any candidai

may as well stay at home as far as h:
prospects of success are concern?e
The truth is that the Government c
China and the Government of th
United States rest upon the sam
foundation-that the people are sovet
eign. This principle was aptly ej
pressed by an ancient monarch of Chi
na in a manifeto known as"TheGrea
Declaration." He said: "Heave
sees according as my people see
Heaven hears according as my peopl
hear. ' '
The difference between the Govern
ments of the two countries lies rathe
in the manner in which this principa
is carried out. You believe in th
choice of public officers through th'
ballot-box: we believe in the choie
of public officers through the exami
nation hall. In this country ail mei
are equal at the polls. The Ch ie
Magistrate of the nation, a well as th?
lowliest day laborer, has no more thai
one vote. The most learned schola
of the country, as well as the mos
ignorant soul, who cannot even writ?
his own name, has no more than on<
vote. The man who has grown gra^
in the srevice of his country, as wei
as the man who has just taken out M?
naturalization papers, has no more
than one vote. Every vote is just ai
good as even* other, and counts ai
much as every other. Those who gel
the most votes are entitled to repre?
sent the people. Thus the governor*
are recuited from the governed.
In China we endeavor to attain the
same end by a different road. The com?
petitive examinations are open to all.
At the examinations all the candidates
stand on the same ground and have
an equal chance of success. The son
of a minister of State is accorded no
more consideration than the son of the
humblest tiller of the soil. Indeed,
a poor, hard-working student is more
apt to pass the examinaitons sueeess
fullly than the luxury-loving scion of
an illustrious house. In this way a
certain proportion of the ruling class of
the land is drafted at stated intervals
directly from the people.
In passing I am bound to say that
the educational system in vogue in
China is not suited to the present re?
quirements and should be modified,
but this does not affect the soundness
of the principle upon which the com?
petitive examination is based. It will
be seen that the Government of China
is in its essential feature a ""govern?
ment of the people, by the people and
for the people, " as well as that of the
United States. Such a government,
as Lincoln observes, "shall not perish
from the earth." China is a living
witness to the truth of his words.
How many nations have survived
the centuries since China emerged as
a compact nation from the nebulous
past? Only the pyramids now attest
the magnificence of ancient Egypt.
Nineveh and Babylon now lie buried
under a wide stretch of sand, and
archaeologists are still disputing
about their sites. The great nations
of the present day are but erections of
vesterday. China is the only surviv?
ing representative of an age that is
past, having witnessed the rise and
fall of many a mighty race in many
lands. The United States may be con?
sidered young, with its 125 years in
comparison with the long duration of
Cuba. But as long as Americans re?
main true to the principles of their
nation's founders, as long as tin- peo?
ple control the Government, there is
no fear that this great Republic will
not continue to grow stronger and

MCLAURIN IN THE SEVENTH.
Will an Avowed Commercial Dem
ocrais Run There ?
Politicians in Charleston have heard
rumors to the effect that a candidate
representing the McLaurin movement
will be entered in the 7th Congression?
al district to succeed Congressman
Stokes, who died at Orangeburg last
week. Just who will be groomed for
the race has not been announced. It
is stated that a man who has been re?
moved somewhat from active politics,
but who can champion the cause of
the ''Commercial Democracy," will
be urged to run. with the idea of test?
ing the McLaurin strength in that dis?
trict, which at the present time is an
unknown quantity. The junior Sena?
tor is not expected to figure in the
campaign, but he will watch the
movement, and his friends claim that
a big victory will have been won in
the election of his candidate.
The 7th district is one of the heav?
iest voting districts in the State. It
takes in some of the best counties and
already nearly a dozen men have been
mentioned as probable candidates.
Some of them have decided that they
wonld run, while others are giving
the matter serious consideration. No
candidate mentioned thus far has been
stamped as the McLaurin candidate,
but the understanding seems to be
that his announcement will be forth?
coming in a very short while, and
when once launched his campaign will
be fought vigorously to the finish.
With so many candidates in the field
the odds will doubtless be placed
against the McLaurin candidate, but
the supporters of the new movement
contend that he will have a good show,
and there is no telling but that he will
win. The counties in the 7th district
are Berkeley. Colleton, Dorchester.
Lexington. Orangeburg, Richland and
Sumter. In the three last named
counties the politicians figure that the
McLaurin vote will be the best, al?
though it will be rather doubtful in
"All the indications point now to
the fact that the McLaurin people will
take a hand in the special election
this year.,? said a well posted politi?
cian in this city yesterday. 4iIt is a
good opportunity to take a flyer into
the dark ground. Until there is a
vote it is not possible to say with any
degree of certainty just what McLau
rin's people can do, although they
think so well of the situation that
they are willing to change an election
this early in the game. That party
will not make any admission of such
a candidate entering the field, but it
is known that the matter is under con?
sideration, and it seems pretty cer?
tain that something will be done.
There is a report that a McLaurin man
will run without being stamped as
such, but this can hardly be accom?
plished. With so many candidates
after the office the voters will want to
know how each stands on national
issues and the McLaurin candidate
cannot go in blindly. He will have
to outline his platform, and if he is
known to be a simon-pure 'Com?
mercial Democrat' some idea of the
strength of this party will be determin?
ed after the vote has been announced.
"The McLaurin element is open for
expansion when it comes to reaching
out for "offices. It is ??well known that
all of the Federal appointments for
this State have been slated, and even
if the app?intments do not become
effective for a year or more Senator
McLanrin can help himself and his
Congressional candiadtes as well by
letting it be known just who will
strike the pie counter in the counties
of the 7th district. Giving these ap?
pointments a semi-official publicity
will result in the influence of all per?
sons who are thus favored going
heavily to the man who is wanted in
Congress by Mr. McLaurin, and it
will be good politics to make the trial
at any event. And while the McLau?
rin element will fight for the election
of its man it is just as certain that
the opposition will bend every influ?
ence to cause his overwhelming de?
The publication in The News and
Courier yesterday of the forthcoming
appointment of Mr. John W. McCol
lough, of Greenville, as United States
marshal created no little surprise in
Republican circles. It was known to
many of the Republicans that such an
appointment would be made and they
were surprised that the story should
have been published. Efforts had been
made to keep it quiet. Mr. Melton's
term does not expire until April and
Mr. McCollough's appointment will
be made in time for him to take charge
at once. There does not appear to be
any kick in the matter and Mr. Mc?
Collough's name has already been pre?
sented to the powers in Washington by
It was furthermore stated yesterday
that practiclly all of the Federal ap?
pointments for South Carolina have
been slated. In this list is included
the big offices in Charleston and some
dark horses are expected to get the
best jobs. The race is by no means
confined to the candidates already an
nouncced. In filling the offices the
new party will not be guided so much
by friendship as a desire to appoint
men who can bring a certain influence
to the organization. There will be
more or less of a business sacrifice for
the man who accepts the best office in
Charleston, and he will be expected
to make this sacrifice for the good of
the party. This announcement may
not be pleasing to the candidates who
are now seeking the offices, but it is a
fact, and nerd not be disguised or
concealed. The man who gets the
Postoffice or the collectorship or the
other offices will have to be able to
deliver influence, meaning votes, for
the job. He will have to be able to
sweep a good vote into the McLaurin
column, and unlesshe has strong poli?
tical influences he will be disappoint?
ed when the appointments are an?
nounced. News and Courier.

The South Wot Degenerating.
Certainly this is a most lugubrious,
nor to say despairing, note which
Gen. Thomas L. Rosser sounds in his
communication to the New York
Herald of July 7. The general is sup?
posed to be discussing "the future
south," but he really devotes himself
to a consideration of its present as
he sees it with a gloomy and a bil?
ious eye. He finds the southern states
rapidly lapsing into desolation. "The I
growth of the northern states," he!
says, "is like that of a full-flooded j
river-in its current float the material j
and the nourishment for a growing ?
empire-while the south is in an I
eddy, and but little goes her way."
And then, speaking of the population,
he adds: "The young white boys,
after struggling hard to acquire "an
education, either seek a profession,
in which they eke out a bare living,
or if unwilling to draw a weary life
along the slow trail of poverty, they
go west or north, where the hum of
busy and progressive enterprise offers
a field in which intelligence and ener?
gy are at a high premium, and where
.push' is invariably rewarded by suc?
cess. While this emigration of young
men depopulates the south, impoverish?

duces decay and thriftlessness. which ?

The south degenerating, her lands,
growing barren, her sons leaving her
to rust and crumble, opportunity,
passing with averted eyes": Xot so,
brave Tom. Wake up "and see the
morning glow upon the hills! Why,
the south is growing as it never grew
before. Argiculture? The cotton
planters have made more in the past
two years than in the ten before. The
sugar growers of Louisinan are richer
than they they were in I860. Georgia,
Florida, and Mississippi, apart from
the cotton crop, are furnishing the
north with early fruits and vegetables
and making more and more money
every year. No opening for the south?
ern youth, no reward for energy and
skill, no career for brains and thrift
and courage? Come, come, for every
capable and well equipped man of
affairs who leaves the south to seek
his fortune ten come from the north
upon that self-same errand. Consider
the millions that have been transfer?
red to the mines and factories in Ten?
nessee, Alabama, and the Carolinas:
the other millions hastening to the
oil fields Texas and Louisiana. Rise
to the surface, General, and take a
look around ? In all the elements of
wealth, in all the machinery of mate?
rial progress and development, and
counting man for man, the south is
far and away the richest and the most
promising section of the country to?

The Heroic Boers.
Two years have rolled along in their
course, and what thing has come of
it? The bones of forty thousand Eng?
lishmen, one for every Boer in the
field, lie scattered along the paths
where the herdsmen drove their cattle.
Twenty thousand Englishmen have
been captured. A billion of dollars has
been spent in vain. The output of the
coveted rand has fallen from seventy
mililons to seven millions a year, and
the imposing forms of Cecil Rhodes
and Dr. Jameson have sunk into
darkness. The unconquered and un?
conquerable Boers still ride over the
desolate and wasted veldts of the
Transvaal and "unfortunate occur?
rences" are still reported in the
coffee houses of London from the very
heart of Cape Colony. Who is now
so poor as to do England reverence?

Tariff War With Russsia.
Washintgon, July 9.-Another im?
portant change has occurred between
the Russian government and the Uni?
ted States relative to the tariff. The
Russian minister of finance, M. De
Witte, has proposed that Russia will
vacate all the additional duties levied
on American goods since the imposi?
tion of the sugar differential if the
United States will vacate its action on
the sugar differential. To this Secre?
tary Gage has replied that the offer
of the Russian government cannot be
accepted as the question of the sugar
differential is now in the hands of the
court, thus precluding action by the
The proposition of the Russian min?
ister of finance was the result of Sec?
retary Hay's note of about two weeks
ago. * In that note Mr. Hay pointed
out that the action taken as to petro?
leum was not new, nor was it meant
to have any connection with the pre?
vious action of the government on su?
gar. This appears to have reconciled
Russian officials in their view that the
petroleum order was only another step
in the policy previously taken respect?
M. DeWitt's response is not long,
but it is quite to the point. It makes
no further issue as to thc petroleum
order. The chief attention is given to
sugar and the specific offer is made |
to vacate immediatly the increased j
duties which Russia has levied, if the
United States will vacate its action on
sugar. This would amount to reestab?
