trust he will do the work well, and
put only good men in office.

The Democrats in Congress are
looking about for a new leader, to
supplant yonnc Mr. Bailey of Texas.
Congressman Richardson, of Ten

with most favor. He would make a
It is about time that Mr. McKin
ley a:id his brother Republicans
were learning that the white men
of the Sauth will not be dominated
over by the negro. And every time
they place "black heels on white
necks." the murders and riots that
are certain to follow should be
charged to them.
A dispatch from Washington,
states that the naval authorities
have become convinced that the
Maria Teresa, which went ashore on
Cut Island, is now nearly a worth
less hulk, beyond repair and in
capable of being moved at any ex
penditure within" reason. Although
somewhat disappointed by the 111
luck that has attended their efforts
t) Bave the Maria Teresa, the Navv
Department has not yet abandoned
the effort to secure at least one of
Cervera's fleet as a trophy to be
placed in the American naval list.
The Spanish Peace Commission
ers, in their reply to the American
Commissioners Wednesday, renew
ed their denial of the right of the
United States to question Spain's
sovereignty over the Philippines,
and proposed arbitration on the
meaning of that part of the peace
protocol relating to the Philippines.
Definite advices have not been re
ceived at Washington, but it is be
lieved that the American Commis
sioners, following the instructions
cabled to them last Saturday by this
government, immediately delivered
to the Spanish Commissioners a
note declaring that the right of the
United States under the protocol to
tlaim '.he Philippii.es was no longer
open to discussion.
The news of Gov. Taylor's return
to the Capitol, after his long and se
rious illness, will bo received with
gladness by everyone. "Our Bob"
has a place in the hearts of the peo
ple that can never be taken away.
Whatever mistakes he may have
made politically however numer
ous and grievous they be he will
still be regarded as the same kind,
jovial, big-hearted "apostle of sun
shine," dispelling gloom a'd sorrow
wherever he goes and leaving hap
piness in their stead. The Gover
nor says he will "linger a couple of
months in the twilight of politics,
and then roost on the highest limb
of private life." In the sphere of
private citizenship, where he is
most honored and lovod, and where
he can accomplish the greatest good
for human-kind, may he live long
Thanksoivini Day, of all other
days in the year, brings more forci
bly to the mindot man the goodness
and mercy of God and the multitude
of blessings thnt by Him have been
showered into each and every life.
This year we have much indeed to
be thankful for. As a nation we
have prospered, and as individuals
each of us has something to praise
God for. Some have grown richer
in this world's goods than others;
some have garners overflowing with
bounteous harvests, while others
have empty cribs and can scarcely
keep the wolf from the door; some
are happy and contented and living
seems to them a pleasant dream,
while others' have become afllic
tion's sons and are bowed down with
sorrow and cares; but where dwells
the man that cannot look down into
his life and find there some visible
marks of God's tender love and
mercy? Even the poorest of God's
creatures the most afflicted or des
titutehas received some blessing
from the Divine hand. Temporal
blessings may have been few;bur-
dens may oppress, misfortunes des
poil, or sorrows depress, but God,
through Christ and Him crucified,
has made it possible for every living
creature to enjoy the happiness of a
life eternal. Truly, God has won
drously blessed us; then 1ft us lift
up our hearts to Him in praise and
The race troubles in North Caro
lina and other sections of the South
present a problem, the solution of
which will not be an altogether easy
or pleasant task for our Republican
friends, inasmuch as they them
selves are responsible, to a greater
or less extent, for their existence.
The negro as an office-holder has
been experimented with and found
to be a sad failure. It has been re
peatedly demonstrated that the
white men ot the Bouth will not al
low negro men to be placed over
them. To do so is to apply the torch
to the powder-mill, and the horrible
results that follow are but a natural
consequence. The time has come
when these murders and riots must
be brought to a stop, and the only
way to do it is to keep the negro
where lie belongs. It seems strange
that the Republicans have not long
6ince discovered that this is the
only remedy in the matter.

Card to the l'ubllc From the King's
The King's Daughters have issued
the following card to the public:
"Winter is again at hand. To most
of our people its approach presents
no dread nor fear; they have been
blessed in field and farm or in their
various pursuits in life during the
past year, and the oncoming of cold
and gloomy weather brings no appre
hension of want and suffering; but
to so many less fortunate ones, win
ter is but the synonym of need and
" In a short time our day of nation
al Thanksgiving will again recur. It
has been the custom of the King's
Daughters, for some years past, to
ask the people of Columbia and
vicinity to assist by their donations
on this day, the efforts made by them
to relieve the wants of the unfortu
nate and needy that abound in our
"The King's Daughters believe
that they have done much towards
relieving the poor around us, but
they most gratefully acknowledge
that their ability to do so has been
due, to a great extent, to the gene
rosity and liberality of our people,
who have ever encouraged them by
warm sympathy and co-operation.
Capt. Black having kindly offered
his storehouse, on the east side of
tho square, for the purpose, any do
nations of money, provisions, shoes,
clothing, etc., will be received there
on Wednesday before Thanksgiving
by a committee of King's Daughters
who will be there from 'J a. m. to 5 p.
m., and who will take charge of and
distribute these donations.
"The offerings of last year carried
joy and comfort into many house
holds and were so liberal that they
relieved the order of the necessity of
making any further appeal during
the following year. They feel confi
dent that the appeal they now make
will be generously received as here
