There seems no ssdder spectacle
than & youth in tbecmtody of the la*.
Especially is the sadnesj impressive
when ignorance and supc rsitiou walks
hand in hand orer oar land with niter
want, huuger and dire wretchedness.
The hope of th3 country is in the
youth of the land. The hope of civilization
rests upon the shoulders of the
young man, and the hope of society
and parity upon the vouug woman.
Realizing this fact, is it not appalling
to see the readiness of the law to lay
burdens, grievous to bs born, up">n
the youth that has not yet reached the
years of discretion?
^'The law is exactnig in its demand?,
and is no respecter of person?." This
may be the true theory, but is far from
the practice. Although the law is
supposed to recognize neither cla^s
nor cast, it is a fact beyond dispu:e
that the privileges of the rich are
greater by far thau the rights of ihe
poor. It may be equally assert*d
with truth, that the intelligent have
thrown about them the cloak of pro<?A^Ar?
Ko ionrtronf oro trnnn/^
in sickening: sheets of tnpersiition and
"Bat," ore may ask, "what a;e we
to do with the young criminals?" The
old adage runs, "A fool may ask
questions that seven wise men cannot
.answer," and wc aright take that
adage as oar cloaks o defence and
hiding behind it allow the law to beep
iu the same old ruts, lagging far behind
the ever hightening and broadening
demands of society's humane
spirit; but we choose rather to make
soma feeble effort for a solution.
Then, we would suggest a bouse of
correction. 1)0 we astonish the natives
by that phrase, ''House of Cor
rection?" Indeed we may suppose
we do, and not only these, bat tbe
law-makers themselves! We are afraid
the old spirit of brutal correcting with
the lash and stock is still abroad in
our land. Recent observations have
forced U3 to this conclusion. Tnere
is nothing so false as the old theory of
showing the ill effects of sin in all
their heinionsness and blackness to
bring forth purity and goodness. The
world's experience has been that the
best way to put down vice and crime
is to raise the standards of purity and
goodness. We can no longer expect
humanity to be bettered by emblazing
upon the public mind the degredatioo3
of crime. Especially is this true or
the young. Tha youth must leara
and be tanght virtue, aud must love
truth and virtue for Ifceir own sake.
If ws take the youth, nav, the child
who has cot reached the age of discretion
and allow the law to take hold
of it aad brand it as a criminal before
we teach it the rudimentary principles
of truth, virtue and honest}, we
are greatly at fault.
Not many days ago, we saw a small
lad of the tender age of ten years
being led a prisoner to the public
works of the county. Fathers, mothers,
you who havetha "milk of human
kindness" in your breasts, is this the
proper correction lor crime iu auy ul
its phazes? Bat above all things else,
is it a correction for uniawfally carrying
away a small sack ef flour? "Who
of the intelligent and wealthy are able
to tell what temptation is in the pangs
of hanger? Who even of the poorer
class can measare the dire distress of
a boy who?e daily sabsistance is only
snch fruits of the land a? this climate
will permit? Back of all this, who
can conceive of the utier ignorance
that is treading over the graves of its
murdered victims here in our own
fair land? Is there any man responsible?
Yes, dome one is responsible.
First of all, the father aud the mother
are responsible?responsible-not for
the ignoranca and want, for these are
beyond their control?they themselves !
were conceived ia sia and begotten in
iniquity?but they are responsible,
and they alone, for the child. But we
will not discuss this question, a? it
take3 Q3 into the field of ccouotnics,
and in its final solution is as answer
to all questions of communism, collectivei3m,
profit sharing" and labor
We will accept the facts as they are,
and lay the charge where it should be
laid?at ths law-makers' feet. No law
is good and no country is safe when it
allows cnnareu wno nave not arriyeu i
at years of discretion to be put upon j
the public works and branded as criminals
! Take such a youth and put ?ucb
a stigma upon him and you absolutely
rob him of all the powers for usefulness
that God himself has given him.
Felbw-countrymen, we appeal to you
to see to it that your law-makers protect
the youth of the lantf, no matter
what their class, cast or race may be,
for there is iu ihat youth immortal
souls, made for the glorification of
God and not for the honor oc the
devil! Even though it be wrapped in J
a skin as black as bell itself, tnere is a
soul, and there are possibilities which
God alone can estimate! Even though
it be a negro boy that was Id J away,
who is able to tell bat that some day
y?u daughters and fair sister?, alight
have beea able to rise up and Vless
him! Bat rob him of al! hop*, ??f all
ambition, of all aspiration by h .Hiding
him as a criminal, at theea :/ age
of ten, and yoa have forever taken
away whatever possibilities there may
have been for good, and thrown npou
society a piece of cteiftwood to add to
its burdens, and increase its ignorance,
depredation and supersition; to black- j
en deeper, is more living colors, its
list of criminals.
Missionaries, we call u;;ji\ou to
save the youth of the land from such
early, uDjast and unjustifiable punish
ments. Let charity be begaa at Inme,
let the living example of goodness and
truth, of mauhood and Chris!i*n integrity
be held np before the youth,
and instilled into them at an early
age, and bring about such condition?
as that a hou3e of correction may be
an absolute necessity making itself
felt upon civilization and society?if
for no other consideration.than from a
dollar and cents basis.
The Chinese war has served one
good purpose. It has exposed the deceitfuhiesa
of the administration,
which has tried to impress upon the
American people that the war in the
Philippines is over. It has been re-,
peatedlv proclaimed that the war was
practically ended and that only a few
lawless ban is 'catered over 'he is'ands
were carrying on any warfare; in last
it has not been dignified with the name
of a war. Now when General Miles
purposes that forces should he withdrawn
from the Philippines to meet
the pressing need for them in China,
the trnth comes out and the peace
bubble. The adminntration has been
60 eager to persuade the country thit
the war was over, that Gen. 0ti3 himself,
a great proclaimer of peace, was
ordered home. He came home a
conquer.ng hero, but somehow the
war still goes on.
The need for troops iu China and
the suggestion that the Philippine
troops be sent there has partly brought
out the real state of tbiogs in the
island?. The'news comes that "more
soldiers is the demand" all over the
islands, and the prediction of Gen.
Lawtou that 100,000 troops would be
needed is now recognized as a reality.
It seams that a great mistake has been
made as to the number of troops
necessary for mere garrisou duty and
the news now comes thai the presput
force now in the Philippines "is not
large enough to garrison more than
half the important town?." Hard
work, iu tbe opinion of the American
commanders, is inevitable.
The question naturally suggested is
what and when is the end of this war?
What will it cost, not only in money,
but in lives, and how will it affect tho
American people? Unquestionably
the administration has tried to keep
the na.inlft in th? dark as ro the real
c r-~ ? -
state of affairs in the islands, and if
this is really irm, then it won'.d be
very unsafe, if n?t disas'rjus to our
institutions, to keep Mr. McKinley
and his party in power. It hns been
charged Ui3t we are rapidly moving
towards an empire, a*id that snch
movement was not a mere sequence of
circumstance, bat a d-iliberate and
well organized plan by iho*e who have
gone wild over European ideas. In
oiher words, there are those who
firmly believe that a scheme has been
formed to subvert the very theory of
our government, to undermine the
fundamental principles of the Republic,
to nullify the constitution, and to
establish to all practical purpose au
empire The sudden outbreak of the
socalled rebellion in the Philippines,
tbe policy of administration towards
the islauds, its policy towards Porto
Rico, its theory that Congress can
govern oar newly acquired territory
outside of the constitution and that
the constitution does not follow tbe
flag, and the evident purpose to maintain
a large standing a any, are among
the things that cast suspicion and give
credence to the alleged coim>;racy.
Whether or not there is any deliberattd
conspiracy there may be great doub',
but the tendencies are lull of danger
and no liberty-loving citizen can afford
to vote for McKinley and Roosevelt.
The issue is the Republic against the
Empire, and against militarism always
a terror and menace to tbf freedom
and liberty of the citizen. T - ear's
election will partly settle whc ;.er we
shall be citizens or subjects, it v\il
settle whether we shall go into ths
colonial system of Europe. If McKinley
shall be elected, he will control
his election info an endorsement
of his course and his imperialism.
With this implicit endorsement, the
Republican party will go to lengths
not now dreamed of by mauy thoughtless
people We firmiy believe that
the election of McKinley and Ro >sevelt
will be first steps towards the end
of the Republic.

prospects of soon having a new railroad.
Railroads are public necessities,
and mean 'public prosperity.
With a new road as an outlet and an
inlet as well, for us to get advantage
of competing .rates and gef some little
advantage of the little towns that surround
VVinnsboro and sap the life
blood out of her, we will soon be
agt?in in the commercial world and
breathing the sweet pure air of prosperity.
In every report of the S:ate campaign
we notice that Mr. Capers seeir?
to lay great stress on the fact that
Superintendent McMahan has named
a flag at Winthrop College for a Yankee
soldier. We think Mr. Capers
would better display his wisdom to tell
this to President McKinley, as the
people of South Carolina are after a
man who can best solve the school
problem, and not especially concerned

tell us something of his official record
when he comes to Winnsboro.

cost cf his own life, bnt wben it comes
to espousing the cause of one who is
a sti anger, and abont whom there are
rumors that make truth to be a liar
and virtue a jest, we nmt exercise
some caution. All the more is it
necessary for our good law-abiding
citizens of Winnsboro to exercise
caution and judgment in a case where
the party has been beLre the justice

After one appears before the courts
of the land, and is dismissed for lack
of evidence against him. then he is
free under tie civil law, and has the
right of protection of that law, and
he who disregards this right is guilty
of a breach of the paaee ana a violation
of (he dignity of the State.
We do not wish to espouse the cause
of tbe negro, fur if he is guilty of the
charge bis neck ought to break. Cut
it is highly necessary for us to know
that he is guiliy, or we make examples
of ourselves in making an example of
the negro.
We are indeed sorry that the
citizens of Winnsboro had to rise in
rebellion to the law to espouse tbe
cause of a Yankee who had refused to
do the proper thing himself. A true
man will not ask the public to interfere
in a case like the recent one, but
will do the necessary thing himself.
If it is not in his power to protect and

the next of blocd has refused to interfere.
Lynching is one of the necessary
evils in administering justice in peculiar
cases, but we think it ought to be
more clearly shown than it was in this
case. The maxim of civil law, "lie
who seeki equity must equity, and
coim into court with clean hand*," is
eternally linked with the Divine Law,
and it therefore necessitates the preservance
of the law in order to sccure
the protection of it.
With good seasons now and a fair
price for cotton this f ill, the fanners
of Fairfield will a^ain be able to stand
on their and stand without being
bitche). We are giad to see that
they have gone to raising hog and
hominy at bom?. It was our good
pleasure to dine at the country home
of one of the most prosperous farmers
in the county not lon^ since, and upon
the board, which wa; sumptiouslv
spread there was nothing except ?alr
and pepper which was not made at
homo. The theory of icss cotton and
more of everything eUe is quite contrary
to the b2-it economic authorities,
but in the present condition of the
farmers there seems in other solution.
Wheat and oats were jjood this past
season, and corn and cotton wherever
worked is exceptionally good for the
time of the year.
