H&" Theodore Price has renewed his

? . : . broadside consisting- of cotton j

ease in Consumption, owing to
high prices, a foregone'conclusion.
.Mr. Priced'bearish tactics may have
' seme effect on the speculative market,
but the cotton growers have the sit?
uation well in hand. They own the
surplus cotton, if there is a surplus,
wu. ca authorities equally as reliable
.as Mr. Price dispute, and they are in
a position to reduce this year's crop to

?The ? :>artanburg correspondent of
the \ and Courier makes the fol- ,
; ' ijitservation: "The election of

intellisent laymen. Several
SaVwycrs, skilled in the law, with clear
:^or::;. . ;nsion and with ability ta
write their decisions in concise and

are ?11 respects qualified and pei

is th< -est possible training for a Su

The Sumter Item reproduces the ed
?aris? of The News and Courier advo
; eating legislation prohibiting the use
ia Sou:h Carolina of other than safe?
ty rr. i - hes, and this is a sign that The
Item views the suggestion with favor.
We wish that The Item and other
South karolina papers would give this
important matter the attention that
undoubtedly merits. If laws pro?

j The News and Courier is correct,
j The Item does heartily endorse the

j would, if enforced, prevent many fires

The charges made by Mr. Means/
for many years clerk, of the Sinking
Fund Commission, against Secretary
of State Gantt, call for a. very search?

wont to remark in, the stirring days of
'90, "There seems, to. be something
rotten in Denmark.."*

Congress is spending, so much: mon?
ey on irrigation in the arid "West, on
building roads inutile Philippines and
on getting ready to. begin digging the
Panama canal that there is none left
for river and harbor improvements at
home, or for public, buildings.. It is an
old saying that charity should, begin
at home, and we believe that congress
should apply the same rule, to- the ex?
penditure of public money for m^?ic

The legislature exmvested on |
Tuesdr.y and. will adjourn forty days j
thereafter. We trust, the. combine!
wisdom of. the law makers will be
equal to the practical solution of all
of the important matters that must
come up for settlement at this session.

The dispensary investigating com?
mittee will unquestionably afford Sen?
ator Tillman the fullest and freest
possible opportunity to. tell all h&
kno.ws of "collusion*' and all other
forms of graft in the State dispensary,
when the proper time arrives. We
bax-e every confidence in the honesty
of purpose, thoroughness and good
judgment cf this committee and if the
legislature will only back them up
and give them the power to require
witnesses to testify, the investigation
will be a real investigation before they
get through with it. Director John
Bell Towill, who informed the com?
mittee a few days ago that he was j
eager to dance to any/ music the com?
mittee might furnish, will also be giv?
en the chance to -?sil the pigeon wing

Governor Heyward's annual message
which was read in the General As?
sembly is a comprehensive, but
not Voluminous document. We pub
Vsh it today in condensed form to ac?
commodate it to to our available space*
The extract^ given cover thc most im?
portant features of the message and
contain the recommendations that are
of most general interest. The part of
the message referring to the dispen?
sary system will undoubtedly arouse
the antagonism of -those people and
newspapers that haye been clamoring
for months past for the summary de?
struction of the entire system root and
branch by means of the Brice law or
any other instrument that could be
made available, and we are awaiting
with interest the criticisms and com?
ments that will follow. It goes with?
out saying that The Daily Item has
no adverse criticism to make on Gov?
ernor Heyward's views for the reason
that they are in entire accord with
the position we have maintained and
the views we have expressed from
time to time. We believe that the dis?
pensary system is theoretically the
best method yet devised for the regu?
lation and control of the liquor traf?
fic, and that the only reason that it
has not been more satisfactory in
praiclical operation is because of the
men who have been in charge of its
administration. Honest men can be
found to manage the business ,and in?
stead of a machine for graft produc?
tion it ran be made a svstem for the
j control of the liquor evil, it is to be
i hoped that Governor Heyward's sane,
conservativeand reasonable views will
have their influence ont the members
of the l?gislature. The message as a
I a whole is worthy, of careful reading.
The legislature can do^ no better than
to adopt his recommendations.

The fertilizer season is now upon us, and ev?
ery progressive farmer is calculating his re?
quirements- We have always advised small,
acreage and liberal; fertilization^ as we believe
it ther safest and most economic;policy to adopt,,
andi particularly a, season like the one upon,
which, we sire now entering, on account of the>
seriousness of the; labor situation. OwingL to
our extensive association with farmers, we:
have? an excellent opportunity of judging, re?
sults* and our observations have convinced u?
that small acreage in cottoai, with, plenty of*
grain, both well fertilized, yields best results.
It. is unnecessary for us to take up space in
advocacy of the superior brands of fertilizers
we handle. They are the sam$. <as we have
been selling for ten years, and as some of the
largest and most progressive planter? hi this
and adjoining counties are our patron^ that is
sufficient A well pleased customer is t e best
aavei tisement any business can. have.
Already we have made some large contracts*
and we observe a growing disposition to buy
the higher class of goods, and we want our
friends to know that the factory we represent*
and for whom we are sole agents in the county,
will make for us any grade of goods for which
we have demand. There is no material change
in the fertiliser situation as compared with a
year ago, and considering the difference in the
price of cotton, farmers have cause to rejoice.
We have every reason to believe we will/Sell
all of our old customers, but in making our
contracts we provided for some new ones, and
those who have never tried our fertilizers, will
do well to inquire from their neighbors, how
they were pleased with them, then sse us
as to prices.
