An illustration will show how lively
the campaiga tor Governor really is.
A few nights sgo Goebal, the Democratic
nominee for Governor, attacked
ex-Congressman Owens, saving that
the reason Owens opposed him was
because he, Goebel, bad cau.=ed to be
passed an ami-gambling law, "thereby
interfering with ttie regular easiness j
of Owens."
Of course this made O^eus nia<i?
andlerepli-d t? Goebt-l. A few of
Otfeiia' expressions will show how
.hot he was. Goebei'i statement was
characterized as "maliciously fa's*,"
for Goebel was not even a member of
tbelegislature wben tbe gambling bill
wa? passed. Bat this is tame. Sooth
Carolina is used to this mild language
in politics. Owens did not stop here.
"Murderer, thief, liar," a?-e the charges
made by Owens sgainst Goebel
"Murderer" because he killed John
D. Sandford, "who-was trying to reelect
Joe Blackburn to the United
Stales Sesate; that he made war on
Sanford, and caused to be printed an
articlc against Sanford so vile and
infamous that it cannot ke lead before
a lady, knowing wheu he wiote it,
thatitwouid not end there, and that
that Sandford would call him to account."
"Goefcel," it is alleged, "held
his pist?] under his coat, and at the
first frign of Sanford's drawing," he
killed bim, and the widow of Sandford
was sent to a madhoiwe in consequence.
Goebel was "a thief" because he
stole the nomination.

piog Clerk Black preferred the charges.
He charged that the commissioner,
Mr. Douthit, had sent out contraband
beer, for which no entry appeared
on the books, and at another
time some beer was put in a buggy
and no record ma^le of it, other charges
were made practically to l he same
These>re small matters, and were
explained to the board to it^ satisfaction.
The point, however, is that these
dispensary employees are forever
making charges against one another,
and the public would like to know
why it is.
A Virginia mob actual'y ended a

went to the court house, ordered that
the trial of a man for having attempted
to assassinate a Mormon elder must
stop, and the Mormon wa3 taken out
and told to leave, acd that there was

of Mormons. The conflict of authority
between the regular channel for administering
law and mob law is sharply
drawn in this case. How much
further will it go?

To the Editor of Ihe Daily rimes:
I lake this my first available opportunity
to comply with your request or
snggesiion, contained in a recent issue,
that I contribute to your columns an
article upon the subject of ship subsidies.
The subject is a very large one,
and its full treatment would require
much time and more of your space,
than I should like to oonsume. I
therefore try to give your readers an
uuadorner general view of tbe subtrifh-vnt
trnincr into details, but
whic'), however, i hope is sufficient to
place them in possession of essentials.

at Medtord. In 1G36, the Desire,
bailt at Marblehead, was cDga^ed in
bringing1 slaves into the ccnuiry. (bee I
Naval War Records, voi. 1, page 367.)
During the era of oar golden days
upon the sea? that section had a practical
monopoly. Iu Carroll's Historical
Collections of South Carolina, Ih-jre
is this extract: "Bat with all this
trade, we have few or u j ships of our
own?we depend in great measure
upon those seat from Great Britain or
such as are i.uilt in New England."
These eectic is would ba the chief
beneficiaries of government aid towards
sbipba Iding, (hough Ohio and
other states u^on the great lakes would
reap largely Irom it. The rest of the
country, and especially the inland
6tates, would receive but resultant and
more or ies.^ remote benefi's. The
argument brought to bear npon tLern
is "the {renei.il good of the country
from an enlarged commerce," the same
argument which avails them in the
nroDDsed ?eizire and "benevolent as
simulation'' ot (he Philippine?, now in
Thecffectof the Diugley tariff act
of Jane, 1897, has been five-fold: (1)
to reduce the amount of import dunes
col'ec'cd at oar cnstom houses from
$2.16 per cip'.uim (wlvch had been
the average to :he previous 20 vears)
to $1 40 por ? ;pitum; (2) to correspondingly
de<. eased importations; (3)
to pro lanto <v rifine our ptople to the
purchase and consumption of our own
manufacturer-; (4) to the same extent,
to take from e.;r produce sellers and
manufacturer- their farmer foreign I
markets, and (o) to force them to

With that new market opened up, new

na-'Payne su'j^My bi'J. The Spanish i
and Philip;>i??e wars have already in-!
creased the. expe; .se; of the govern-j
ment from $5 a hea<- to $5. The pro- !
posed subsidy will add to that burden. I
The benefits of the subsidy will go j
almost wholly to the few shipbuilder* !
and shipowners; while the increased
taxation, like that resulting from the
war, will be distributed to all.
Howsver, it is admitted by all that
our shipping interests should be re
vived. Our only way of comiaanicatiug
with 90 per cent, of the people
of the world U by ships. More than
85 per cent, of our foreign commerce
is carried on by foreign ships. In 1S46
we carried SO per cent, of it and 66 per
cent, of it in 18GG. In 1S97, of onr
$1,714,329,043 of exports and imports,

Of thy total vessel tonnage of 39,331.041
entering and clearing our seaports
iu foreign trade for the fiscal year,
1897, onr part was only 7,24S,62S, or
IS per cent, of tbe whole. Daring
that year only seven steamships bailt
in this country crossed the Atlantic or
Pasific. Of tbe sixty ocean passenger
i and freight lines plying from New
York, only seven are American.
But is this sibsidy tbe remedy?
Its advocates assert that it is, aud
that it is tbe only one. History and
experience are appealed to. Oar first
congress in 17S9, in order to encourage
shipping, imposed 10 per cent, duties
upon goods imported in other than
Ame:ican ships, jast as England was
doing to protect her ships. This continued
until 1S2S, during which period
our ships (wooden) attained an aversga
of 90 per cent, of our commerce.
In that year, by conditional treaties
with Eoglat'd and other countries,
that Jaw was suspended, a --iuanuuio
reciprosity" being established, which
in effect abolished the "additional import"
or discriminative daties. Those
duties remain of force, but can be
abrogated upon notice of one year.
The "encouragement granted by the
discriminating daties has not existed
since 1830.
In ISio a subsidy act was passed,
which continued of force until its
repeal iu 1S58. During that period
[ American ships received in subsidies
- ~
an average of a year. iu
meet tun, act, England raised her subsidies
from au average of $3,000,000
to an average of So,000,000 a year.
The act failed to meet expectations and
was repealed. Would it not fail ugain?
Great Britain catries 56 per cent, of
the commerce of the world, owns half
the tonnage of the world, has 15,000
[ ships afloat and dominate# ono-third of
the world's population. She pan afford I
at any lime to double otr subsidies
with countervailing subsidies. Her
foreign commerce is her chief dependence,
&s agriculture is ours. Her 50
years' advantage cannot be cosnterbalanced
bv subsidies. To be fcffec-.
tive, they would have to be enormous.
Her payments to her ships lor man
and subventions now amount to $4,000,000
a year. We pay ours (the
Amarican Line) $757,000.
It is contended that American ships
cost more in construction and more in
operation than European ships, and
that a subsidy is required in order to
equalize them. The facts are, we
have recently sold to Eugland sheet
plates for the construction of her largest
steamship. H'e produce and make
the bsst and cheapest plate in the
world. Our ship builders umlerbid
English, French and German builders,
in competing for Japanese and Russian
contracts. We build war ships as good
and cheap as any. It is true our work-1
men and sailors are belter paid than i
those of Earope, bnt they are better
mate:ill and do quicker and better
work. They were paid higher tban
tho^c of Earope in the years between
17S9 and 1830, when our shipping held
the seas. England, our successor,
to-dav pays better wages than any of
the countries she lead?, except American.
Thi good wages of oar workmen
acd sailors cannot, therefore, be ussd
as a plea for subsidies. Toe profits to
the builders and owners would be immense,
as the subsidy compensation
would amount to more than the entire
expense of operating ih3 ships. The
indirect benefit to the people &t large ?
is not so apparent or substantial as t")
induce them to make sach extravanu.,t
mj fi'rwn ih?> nrihHfi t.rftas
ury for private emolument. The
coaipa-n* which will be the chief recipient
of it, to the extent of two and
a h*lf niiliou* a year (the luternatioj.al
Nivagiiioa company) now has
1? liip< in scrvice, 8 under the Arnericm
lhg ami 10 under fo-.eigu; and it
admits that it is prospering, and building
lour more snips That company
is the power behind the subsidy bill.
There were two other features of
our maritime legislation of 1789, and
thjv remain of fore? still: (1) that
only American built ships should receive
American registry; (2) that only
A l.nilf china ehniitri on<ratrd in
our coatwi-e commerce. Under the
first, our commerce his undoubtedly
been hampered and rnnch American
capita! ha* brcn forced to fly flags o:
oliier nations over its ships. The
socond l;a-? resulted iu giving our
ships a compete monopoly of commerce
betwicn the ports of our own
comtry (oir coastwise trade), and
they have a toriageof nearly 10,660,000
tons, (Jo cnbio feet being a ton. Relief

A deaire to compose something on I
the diftorence between tbe morality
and general soundness of a country
boy and o:ie who Ins been brought up
under t!.e itifl lences of city life, has
long bee i entertained and pondered j
by Us? >nr purpose in so desiring is
to strengthen the bands between the'
two distinct clas-es as in our nnii?>on
it is strictly necsstry for & oirong
unio i between tbfj two to insure tbe
firmie?s of our social and political advancement;
especially d j we think it
necessary in our diar old Smtliern
Suie?, for what are they but the
future of our country; on tbe rising
generation depands, greatly, the good
government of our country.-* But we
have strayed from our first subject.
Fir.-*, a country boy hi?, as a general
thiug, very limited meaus and but
few opportunities to fix and prepare
himself so as to bt? competent of
transacting the political f.ffairs of a
c >untry a? regards an edncation, for if
he is connected with the business of a
farm very little of his time can be
spared in order to procure an educational
qualification sufficient to make
him competent lor filling any important
and high political position.
Bat we are aware of the fact that
most of our best statesmen are. and
have been born and raised on the

laiui, aiiu oL'mu V/A. p-* vI_?-I*.
neat have had but scanty educational
advantages, therefore we are strengthened
in our belief that what makes a
man qualified for prominent places is
strict moral training.
Then it is an easier task for parents
to train a boy and give him that lasting
impression of moral conception in
a pleasant, quiet, country home where
his daily vocation leads him not in the
way of so many soil inducements a* in
a lively, ru&hing city home, where, as
is generally the case, the father, the
chief head of his trainers and the one
who invariably a bov will imitate, is
too d?ep!y ?on?erned in basinets af
LdlVS lUKL U1C IU XllHd VI L11U1C liuyvit&ncc
than (lie training of his boy.
We do lioI bold, or intend to maintain
that country boys receive any
more ?f this important moral training
than they should, bat possibly some
have more "lost opportunities" than
ihey merit, while other3 are the re
cipien'3 of very few opportunities and
make more out of (hem than the forriiei.
While there may be some ezcep ion?,
the onmry boys have advantage in
that line, where tho^c of the city have
\ disadvantage; tbat is, the city ooy is

2 Yes, it is th? iadex to health. If L
? you have bad blood you are likely J
^ to learn that you have Rheuma-1r
g tisrn, one of the most horrible dis- a
r ease to which mankind is heir. If 3
^ this disease has just began its work f
4 or if you have been afflicted for
? ? years", you should at once take the J
$3 wonderful new cure, r
x Rheumacide i
P Thousands have been cured. The
^ summer season is the best time to f
2 take a rheumatic remedy. Nature k
? will then aid the medicine in ef-j
to fecting a permanent, constitution- ?>

? are subject to catarrh, indigestion. ;
to and many other blood diseases. f>
a To be healthy the blood must be k
? pure. KHEUMICIDE is the;
