Thk manufacturers and dealers in
Ice in Nashville, have entered into
a combination to raise the price of
ice. There is no danger of any such
thing in Columbia; the price is al
ready raised nearly out of sight.
Thk Citizens' Telephone Co.,.. to
retain the hold it has upon the peo
ple, must give good service. The
last two fires have demonstrated the
fact that its night service is not
what it should be. The central of
fice ought never for an hour, day or
night, to be left in inefficient hands.
It's best friends cannot defend bad
service, and the Herald will not
lion Taylor, Tennessee s ort ma
ligned and much troubled Governor,
is one of those born orators whose
eloquent words and melodious voice
never lose their charm. President
McKinley was of course received in
Nashville last week as he should
have been with a great deal of
eclat; and there was speech-making
by men of national reputation;
among whom were the Presidont
himself, and Gov. Bushnell of Ohio;
but Our Bob outshone them all. His
speecli was resonant with good fel
lowship and gallantry, brimful of
apt and pretty similes, and the only
speech that President McKinley
Mr. F. G. Smith makes a timely
suggestion in another column, in
regard to getting competition in the
telegraph business in Columbia.
Certainly we need such competi
tion; for even the haughty and high
priced Bell is not more outrageous
in their charges or arrogant in their
manners, than the Western Union
monopoly. If the Postal Telegraph
Co., has an office already in Nash
ville, we see no reason why they
could not be induced to establish
one here. But, if they are not ex
tending their lines, why then lets
build one of our own from here to
Nashville, where our messages may
be repeated to any important city in
the country. That unanswered pe
tition, sent by the people of Co
lumbia to the Western Union, ask
ing permission to place a Citizens'
phone in their office-free,' may yet
prove an expensive piece of ill-mati-n'ered
impudence upon the part of
this well watered monopoly. Per
haps before we are through with this
fight they will wish they had at
least had the good breeding and
common decency to have answered
a polite petition; and not only to
have answered it, but to have
granted it. The saving in one year,
to the people of this town and county,
would more than pay for a line from
here to Nashville. Then think of
the fun we would have, and the
glory, as a community, of knocking
out the Bell and the Western Union
at one and the same time. It is a
good thing! Push it along!
We have not made any very dili
gent inquiry, but we have been in
formed that the majority of the
members of the County Court are
opposed to issuing bonds, and that
the only danger the county has of
being saddled with another $50,000
bonded debt, may come from the
active interest of the few who favor
the scheme, against the indifference
of those who oppose it. This is too
often the case. It too often occurs
that the opposition fail to do their
duty by being present, or by refus
ing or failing to oppose the pet meas
ure of some personal friend. It is
not an uncommon practice, we are
told, for magistrates, just to accom
modate a friend, to absent them
selves at a convenient time, rather
than vote against a bill when warm
ly espoused by some brother mem
ber. And it is said by those who
have watched the workings of this
court, that it is possible to get al
most any job through, if you will
only keep at it and bide your time.
And a favorite play the minority
makes and a favorite time with
them is the afternoon of the second
or third day; when hardly a quorum
is left present, and that quorum, by
preconcerted effort, happens to rep
resent the full strength of the friends
of their particular bill, then and
not till then their measure sprung.
Magistrates who will play with the
peoples interests in this way, do not
deserve the trusts they hold. To
avoid the possibility of any such
proceeding with the bond question,
those who oppose it should not wait
for its friends to make the move, but
should themselves bring it up the
first day, when the attendance is
full, and have it discussed and dis
posed of then. The Herald thinks
it would be bad finance to issue
bonds, and put ourselves at the
mercy of foreign capitalists, when
our own people are carrying our
warrants and are satisfied to curry
them. We can afford to pay a high
er rate of interest on a floating debt
to our own home people, than we
can on a bonded debt to foreigners,
and still make money by the trans
action. For the reason that the In
terest on very small warrants fre
quently is not taken into account;
and these small warrants, aggregat
ing a considerable part of the whole,
relieves the county of no small por
tion of the interest bearing debt
And for the further reason that this
interest on a floating debt, paid to
home people, is kept at home and
circulated at home; whereas, the in
terest on a bonded debt would, soon
or late, find its way to Wall street,
and the hands and peckets that
knew it before would know it no
Co., but what I want to see and
gest is, competition.
Now what is the matter with get
ting the Postal Telegraph Co , to
extend its lines to Columbia? They
are already in Nashville, and all
the larger cities of the Union. If
we get a new telegraph company
here there will not only be no trou
ble for the Citizens' Telephone Com
pany to get connections with them,
but this would really he an induce
ment for them to come and open an
office here, as all the subscribers to
the Citizf tn' Co., would prefer pa
tronizing them to the Western
Union, and would give them a
gr?at deal of assistance in many
I simply offer the above as a sug
gestion, and trust that before long
we may all see some competition in
the telegraph as well as mi the tele
phone business. Respectfully,

Several weeks ago Messrs. Dobbins
it Ewinir, the hardware merchants,
announced that they would give a
'Buck's Junior" nickeled range to
the gril under 14 years of age, who
would send them the greatest num
ber of correct English words formed
of the letters in "Buck's Stoves and
Ramres," the contest to close June
15. This put a number of little heads
to thinking, and as a result the fol
lowing misses sent in lists of words:

Miss Sarah Cochran l,3iit
Miss Fannie Miller 1,:-I40

Miss Ada Voss 172
As will be seen, Miss Elsie Frier-
sou, tne little daughter or Mr. anu
Mrs. Mat Frierson, of Soutli Colum
bia, heads the list, and to her goes
the handsome littlerange. All of the
papers were nicely written, but that
of Miss Tunell is deserving of special
mention. Messrs. Dobbins cc Ewing
say they are sorry they cannot give
each of the contestants a stove, as
each one deserved it.
Mr. William Evans, of Waco, Giles
county, and Miss Daisy Kerr, of
Campbell's Station, were united in
marriage at the residence of Rev. F.
B. Webb in this city, last Monday
afternoon, Dr. Webb performing the
ceremony. The marriage was a
runaway affair, there having been
parental objection. Mr. F.vans is a
promising young merchant of Waco,
and has many acquaintances in this
county. The bride is a popular
young school mistress, anil has a
legion of friends who wish for her
and her's much happiness through
Mr. R. B. Reeves, of Texas, and
Miss Lizzie Sargent, of Sawdust
Valley, were united in marriage at
the home of the bride on last Tues
day afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. R.
G. Linn officiating. Immediately
after the ceremony the happy couple
left for their future home in Texas;
the well-wishes of their many
friends accompanying them.
Last Tuesday evening at 6 o'clock,
Mr. Thomas Burk Bond and Miss
Mary Hickman McLemore, both of
Spring Hill, were united in marriage,
Rev. Mr. Hardin performing the
ceremony. The home of the bride's
fathe.r, Mr. R. W. McLemore, was
the scene of this quiet, unostenta
tious marriage, only members of the
family being present. The union is
the result of years of devotion to
each other, and the Herald joins
a host of friends in wishing for them
a bright, happy future. Mr. and
Mrs. Bond left immediately for St.
Louis, their future home.

The Herald, as our readers may
have discovered, has no controlling
influence over Nashville's great
show; and the present editor of the
aforesaid paper was in his swad
dling clothes when the late unpleas
antness between the States was be
ing fought to a finish. But withal
that it may seem to be no affair of
ours, we protest against the Confed
erate uniform the faded gray jack
etbeing prostituted to the base use
of advertising posters. We do not
object to all the pageant and cere
mony the foolish flatterers of royalty
may bestow upon the President of
the United States, or any other per
son in authority. If there are those
who feel themselves honored by
paying the price for a seat in a car
riage and becoming a part of his
retinue for a day or an hour, that (s
a harmless sort of amusement to
which they may safely be indulged
and of which we do not envy them.
But this was no occasion to bring
Into display the uniform of the Con

military dignitary being received;
there was nothing to suggest or call
for military honors; and if there had
been, the body-guard of an honored,
brave Federal soldier, should have
worn the blue. It was nothing more
nor less than an unmeaning bit of
sycophantic fawning, and an un
warranted use of the Confederate
colors. It was an unexpected, un
timely, awkward public apology; it
was a nedless abasement, with the
mercenary motive that the Centen
, nial might gain a little cheap ad
vertising north of the Ohio river. It
was an insult, to the Confederate
soldier and a desecration of his uni
form, aud in their name we protest
against Its repetition, unless it be

COMPETITION IS HHAT WE NEED.
The AVeHtern I'tilon Telegraph Monopoly
Neeilw a Itival Kadly.
Editor Herald: The Citizens'
Telephone Co., have offered to the
Western union Telegraph Co., the
use of oue of their telephones free of
charge; and this they have refused
to accept, thinking that it would be
the means of helping out the Citi
zens' Co., while it would be detri
mental to that benevolent(r) insti
tution, the Bell Telephone Co.
It is very evident that the Western
Union is trying to uphold the Bell
in the fight that is now being made,
and is not willing even for the Citi
zens' to place one of their telephones
in their office, free of all charge or
expense to them. They know that
if the Citizens' Telephone Co., have
connection with the Telegraph of
fice, tnat it would be a great con
venience to its subscribers; conse
quently they cannot afford to allow
that privilege, as it would or might
indirectly damage the aforesaid
The Western Union Telegraph
Co., pay to the Bell Telephone Co.,
12lg to lo'l of the amount received
from telegrams received over their
telephones, and this pays them

for the use of their instruments.
Notwithstanding this exorbitant
charge, the Western Union Tele
graph Co., prefer paying them this
amount, rather than have a Citi
zens' Telephone in ttieir office free,
with, the privilege of retaining the
Bell if they like.
This is a fair illustration of how
these, two companies are working
hand in hand. They botli realize
the fact that if an independent tele
phone company can be worked suc
cessfully there is no reason why a
telegraph company could not be
worked practically in thesnne way,
