WINNSBORO, S.-C. ednesday, November 10, 1897 OCR ELECTORAL SY8TBM. We have read with a great deal of interest an article in the November Forum on the Dangerous Defects in our Electoral System by ex-Secretary of the Treasury J. G. Carlisle. It is written in his nsaal strong and vigorous style, and bis points are brought out clearly. When the dangers involved in oar present system are contemplated, .it is amazing that it has been tolerated, and it is still more surprising that a change has not been [ ?.-J- 2? aawoJUmHaw \fontr of I LLI&Utf 1U vliC wuoiltuuvut *unuj wa our readers possibly know that the Twelfth Amendment to the Constitution, prescribing the mode ol electing the President and Vice-President, was adopted on account of the situation in the election between Jefferson and Burr in 1801. It wa3 adopted in 1803, The Amendment has never been satisfactory, and now and then some agitation springs up for a change. In 1S24, "a majority of the States," says Mr. Carlisle, "through their legislatures, declared in iavor 01 a ainereac method," bat although many proposed amendments were offered,, none of them conld be. carried through both branches of Congress. The Senate, then as now, was a stumbling block, and when amendments would pas? the House of Representatives, they would fail in the Senate. ?vcr?body, who has given the snbject any thought, agree that a change ihoula be made, but an unobjectionable plan has never been proposed. Let us briefly suggest some of the serious dangers that may occur under the present system, and it will simply be miraculous if some of them, if not all, do not occur. As most everybody knows, the President and Vice-President of the United Slates are elected by electors. These electors from the several States are elected or appointed Ill OUOU UiMUU^l f$ 3 VAVU O iVgi-J latnre may prescribe. Each elector names on a balM his choice for President and on aio'her ballot his choice for Vice-Presiatnt. The person having the greatest number of votes in the electoral college shall be President, but his total vote must be a majority of the whole number of electors. If no per? son has received a majority, then, from the persons, not exceeding three, having the highest number of vote3 on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall forthwith choose the President, the representation from each State having one vote. The person who shall receive the grea'est number of votes, provided , it. b^majoritz-QClhe-WholeLiianiber- of electors, shall be Yice-rrewdent. : Tr> <->o co rift norarm Viavo a maMrttv. then the Senate shall elect a VicePresident from the two persons.on the list having the highest number ef votes. Mr. Carlisle, speaking of these provisions, says that they "are not only cumbersome and inconsistent with the democratic spirit of our institutions, but so imperfect in their details and so uncertain in thoir practical operation as to constitute a menace to the peace of the country at each recurring Presi dential election," and that "it seems almost, marvelous that we have been able for so long a period to secure a regular and peaceable succession of Presidents and Vice-Presidents." Mr. Carlisle mentions the very obvious fact?that the tendency is towards "dispersion rather tnun of consolidation"; "and that, instead of two great opposing party organizations, we may < have, for some time at least, three or 1 four formidable parties, each with an 1 nf ?fc Atrn1 fhna nntli VIVViVlMt uvaw V* AbW vr f? u j only enabling a mere plurality of the popular vole to control the entire elect- ! oral rote in every State, but, at the j same time, greatly increasing the dan- ( ger of compelling the House of tfepre- ? sentatives to choose the President, and the Senate to choose the Vice Presi- j dent." 3 Then, on account of the increa*e in I the number of political parties, s^p- J pose that it should happen that more j than three persons, on the list voted j for as President, should receive the highest and an equal number of votes, j *V>on n/*r?/vrvl?ncr tA fWncfifnfinn . there would be no choice for President i in the electoral college, and the House of Representatives could not, consti- | tuticr^aily, choose a President, be- ^ causa as already said the House of ] Representatives must choose from the ! three persons receiving the highest j number of votes. If more than two t norsnna nti fhp list vnforl fnr as t President, receive the highest and equal jr number of votes, there would be no i election in the electoral collego and J could be none in the Senate. The re- 1 suit would be that the United Stales J would be without a President or Vice- ( President. Then what would become of 'he Government ? 1 disease : hi< subject at an- J ot> er . :<? It is a live question, and the s- er it settled the better for < ? the Re abiic. The wonder is that the c ..present ?ystem iiasbeen suffered. We have just read an article written * by Mr. G. H. McMaster in 1857 urging the organization of agricultural societies. He says: uThe following are matters which should, I think, enter < intrk i1>o r?oKKpratirtn rvf ?iffrif.nlfnr<il ( societies. The enactment of 'Not* fence* law ; a special tax upon negro 11 mechanics; enforcement of the law 4 against trading with slaves, and of the 11 road working law." The "No fence" * carae many years afterwards, the war ' ended the slave law, bat we are still talking about good roads. t The 2?ew England manufacturers 1 ought to have visited Catawba fails } before returning home. Tbrre they would have seen one of tbe finest water powers in the United Slates. It is bound to be tbe manufacturing centre i of the State some of these days. Were E it better known, it would soon be E utilized. With Catawba falls devel- t - * 1 *? ?^ 4a of rvi?Toc T OpeCl, DOT' UDiy WUIUU liugo lawviivu be located there, but they would spring r up all along the Southern Railway ? between Winnsboro and Rock Hill or c certainly as high up as Chester. The * power is practically unlimited. Fair- * field, Chester and Lancaster counties ( could have electric railways traversing i in every direction. In trnth, it i3 just 8 inconceivable of the possibilities hid- ] den in this powder now wasted. Colombia's canal would be a3 a spring branch compared to it. FiVE-CEirrs cottoi), let ns hope, will force farmers to plant more wheat this year. The one crop craze has demolished nearly all the flour mills in this part of the country, but if wheat maintains its present price aad cotton stays 5 ?- ?? r 1 GOWDj insrc may uu ^vuic for the miller in a few years. Fair- * field had a number of flour 2oiila twenty 8 years ago, but our farmers adopted * the short sighted policy of planting all c cotton and the mills disappeared. We ^ donbt whether there are more than e two or three flour mills in the county, 3 and it is barely possible that there is a only one. Good flour, much more t nourishing than most of the flour now a bought, has been made here, and it can be done again. c -? ? I In Georgia, some members of the * General Assembly propose to make a ? dtrainsf fAnf-hn.11. and tn infrndnce * -?? , hn act declaring the game unlawful. J Representative Phinizy, of Richmond J County, says that there are too many 1 d?n farmers and d?n jackasses in the J Georgia legislature and that they are 1 toogreentoburninhadeg. Mr.Phioizy 1 is evidently what is jcnown as a ioocball crank. It is a gooA thiDg that J most>of the voters in his county live in Augusta, otherwise the t:d?n farmers" might leave Mr. Phinizy at home at the next eleetion, and pnt a "d?n farmer" ia his place. We were shown M.rae peofto* from ] trees on Mr. J. M. Beaty'o place. Soma were from a very old tree, and others * frr\m a it aw Iraa Tklan^/1 hv Mr.RpatV. j The nuts from the young tree were fully twice the size of those from the old tree. The young tree has been cultivated, f^nd the old has not. The large pecans were delicious and of a rich flavor. A few pecan trees are qctite an addition to one's premises, and it is surprising that "more people do not plant them. An acre or two would rinnhtleRH nrftre finite nrofitable. } The township road committees would meet just such cases as those mentioned ^ by "A Subscriber." The township j committees would report "the roads i impassable," where "not a day, no, * not an hour of load duty has been, put in on th8 roads." If what "A Sub- e scriber" reports is true, it is not at all a surprising that our roads are in such a ^ miserable condition during a wet spell.

It is said that every city, town and 'illage has its idiosyacrasies, Its habits >ecnliar to itself, as much so as every aau, woman and child. If this is true he first thing that a casual observer LOt5.ce3 in visiting oar town is the tamber of beardless boys and very, >ery young men who in the course of louversation refer to "my wife" at tome. Perhaps this cm be accounted :or by the fact that this is a requisite >f every thoroughly alive town, bnt be t as it may facts stand for themselves md from the present outlook tbere is ao chance for improvement. For the past five years Eidgeway has tsld a record in the unmber of her narria^es that can hardly be equalled n any t?wn of her s'ze in the State, md at the end of list season the pros >ect3 for a continuation of it were a ittle disheartening. It seemed that ier good record must of necessity be >roken, bnt now all are radian: with topes of a continuation of it. Oa last Wednesday when old Sol tad only half finished his day's work tod from the zeniih of the heavens vas smiling on the good people of our ommuaity with one of his sweet November smiles, Mr. John J. McEachirn, of Kidgcway, lead to the altar dis3 Ama B. Harrison, of Longtown, .nd in the solemn rites of the Presby erian Church they were made man ,nd wife. The wedding was a quiet home one >nly a few relatives and the bride's >astor3 Rev. J. G. Herndon, and wife >ein2 preseut. Both the bride and room are well knowu in our comnunity. *Mr. McEachern is 01 e of Xidgeway's most promising young aerclianis and Miss Harrison is the rery popular daughter of Mr. J. D. Eiarrison, who, since reaching her 'sweet sixteen" has held sway as the Delle of Longtowu. In tin name of The News a>*d IIerlld I extend congratulations and well wishes to the young conple. A few days ago the State inspector >f dispensaries arrived m our to^n >n official business. Wiiat (he result )f his visit is not known bat persuant o his orders the county board ig it present taking stock and Dispenser Elkin has been succeeded by Mr. R. W. lollis. We hope that this will put an end o the dispennary trouble here, and sven if Ridgeway can receive no proits from it that ife will no longer be so >rone to invite discussion and wrangings on the subject. A few days ago in Longtown a bale j >f cotton was stolen from Mr. W. J. Seigler by a negro named Fred Gibes. Sis cotton was identified at tbe depot ?y Mr. Seigler and upon reference to he number tbe seller was found out. rred is now resting complacently in h? county jail. Our new postmaster has completed lis improvements in the postoffice. since Mr. Williams took charge of it has completely overhauled" the in iidtj of the building. T&e old boxes vere replaced by ao ample supply of iew ones and both Mr. Williams and lis clerk, Mr. GrJgsbv, are doing ail vithio their power to'give satisfaction o the public. The couutj teachers are much pleasid at the prospects for longer terms nd better schools this year than last. Che public school here has enrolled >ver 70 so far and will have more comng in. The neighboring schools have argo enrollments also. Mi?? Stella iosborough, from Angnsta, has charge >f the Lower Longtown school ana nas mrolled over S9. Miss Mamie Hinnant, from Winnsloro, has enrolled over 40 in Upper jongtown. Often we hear complaint that the choolsof our county are so mnch beiind those of the rest of the State, f those making these charges were to xamine into the matter they would ind it quite different. But, we need rro thing3; first, more uniformity in ha fot-f >iaaI-q iicor? in }hp f.rtrmt.v UW iv-i t WMVM ?*? V?IV chools. If the coanty superintendent rould visit our schools more and re[uire the teachers to use the- books dopted by the State board, aud not save the choice to the fancy of every eacher that comes along we would do ouch better and be at less expense the parents. Second, more profesional knowledge is needed. Oar Bachers do not read enough standard ducalional literature.

We might t least have qmr'orly county instiite? and require all teachers to atsnd. The consolation, the comfort, the pmpathy, the knowledge that a teacher rould get from these institutes would o a long way toward solving the roblem of teaching 40 pupils in nearly s many ciasses on~$2o a month.

Not Always Understood. A fact often overlooked, or not al- . ways understood, is that women suffer as much from distressing kidney and bladder troubles as the men. The womb is situated back of and very closc to the bladder, and for that rea son any distress, disease or inconvenience manifested in the kidney?, back, bladder or urinary passage is often, by mistake, attributed to female weakness or womb trouble of some sort. The error is easily made and may b3 as easily avoided by setting urine aside for twenty-four hours; a sediment 01* settling is evidence that yoar kidneys and bladder need doctoring.
