Oar correspondent J. D. H. makes
some good suggestions, and while we
do not intend to ehborate them we
desire to add oar * endorsement to
them <?8 being on the rigbt lioe. As
to the pistol habit, what be says as to
the evil is all true; and the newspapers
have straggled bard to create
a sentiment against the evil practice
of carrying concealed deadly weapons.
We do not altogether take to the idea
of a detective. We never like a
regularly employed spy. Soon officer
might, of coarse, do his duty conscientiously
without malice or ill wil!
towards any, but the principle of the
plan has in itself an evil tendency. It
furnishes too tempting>n opportunity
for revenge or persecution. The best
way and .the only way to stop the
carrying of concealed weapons is for
*11 good citizens to put their foot down
on it, and let it be known that they,
not as employee ueiectives, uui iawabiding
citizens* intend to see the law
enforced. If those who condemn the
practice will support the law, the
evil can belstopped. They can create
a sentiment in favor of law and order.
As to the suggestion that the public
roads should be in charge of an experienced
Jcivil engineer we endorse
that without reservation, but the
people will have to be educated up to
it. In the first place, (be people of I
Fairfield County have never appre
dated how badly tbey need good
roads. The very first objection that
will be made to J. D. H.'s plan is that
the people are too poor to pay a
icientific engineer one -thousand dollars
per annum. Jast watch! An
experienced engineer wonld be cheap
at that, and we doubt whether the
services of a competent man could be
had for it, but possibly so. The point
Wq wish to make, though, is that the
people must first find out that the
county really mnst have good wads,
and then J. D. H. and all others who
now appreciate the value of good roads
must convince the people that tbey can
not get a good thing for nothing.
They must pay for it. We haTe no
doubt that ,J. D. H.'s suggestion has
been inspired by whatT he saw in
Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, and
other States, tbongb he doesn't say so.
He doobtles* noticed the splendid
turnpike roads, and be found that
Jan.is naturally do Detter loan me
beautiful lands along the Wateree
were selling for ten or perhaps twenty
times a* mucb, and be fonnd (bat these
same good ;roads had a great deal to
do with it. We need not go 60 far
from home to ascertain the same tbiog.
Mecklenburg county jast across the
State line in North Carolina furnishes
a strifcing example of what goosi roads
will do for agricultural ommnnitJe?.
Returning to the suggestion, we
need refer only briefly to the value
of an engineer. Oar roads are miserably
located. Tbey ought to be resurveyed,
and run with some regard
to the topography of the country. The
value of a good isngineer is obvious in
road construction. We are gJaa
J. D. H. has opened the discussion
and hope that others will follow.
A combiDe has been (formed by the
lumber companies, which control practically
all the pine timber in North
and South Carolina and Yirgini?.
Trusts :folIow close npon the election
of McKinley. When you want lumber
you will probably have to pay this
trust a good price for it. The great
fight in the future will be against
these trusts. They won in the last
election, and every victory makes
them stronger. The great daoger is
that the reaction 3gainst trusts, which

socialism. The excuse generally given
for the formation is that it minimize
the cost of production. This argument
may be taken hold of by the people
and carried further. They may argae
that if private monopoly is a good
thing, public monopoly is better, and
that is the sum and substancc of socialism.
The logical" evolution of trusts
leads to socialism. It is strange that
trusts which are constantly labelling
policies as socialistic should them
selves be laying the foundation lor
Aftek a few more Iyuchings of
negroes in Northern State?, we hop e
that Northern newspapers willkcease
to lectnre the South. No one wili object
to tbeir condemning lynching in
general, but the South is tired of
attacks directed especially at this section.
Since the war between the States
the negores have gone to the North to
live, and recent events have shown
that they fare no better there than
here. Lynchings are deplored in tbe
South as much as in tbe North, and it
is time for the outrageous attacks on
this part of the country to cease. One
feature of the Colorado lynching shows
the difference between the civilization
of the two sections. It is said in the
reports that while women were not
actually present at the burning, they
were not far off. Southern women
would have been far off.

We can understand how some peo-j
pie may b&ve opposed Mr. Br* an on !
account of his free silver viev?s in
1896 and how some people hare a
ague kind of idea that the so-called
exoansion Dolicr of the administra
tion means greatness to this country
and will give it great commercial importance
aDd wealth, but we can not
understand how theae people see any
benefit to the great masses in a Government
which permits the organization
of gigantic concerns which can
send up the prices of such necessaries
of life, as salt, mutton, beef and
pork. It is very easy to say that Mr.
Bryan appealed lo the passions of
men, bat if this artificial advance in
prices of things consumed by the
masses <-ha'.l continue to be possible at
the mere will of the trusts a far less
conservative leader will be fonnd
Oxe little incident 'of the election,
wbich the newspapers seem to hsve
overlooked, onght to be kepi before
those Republicans who had so much
to say abont the negro in tbe politics
of North Carolina aud other Southern
State?. It happened in Philadelpqia,
we believe; not in a Southern Stale,
remember. It appears that the negroes
thought that there was too much
delay in opening the polling booth,
and when they saw some wbite men
allowed to vote before themselves the
negroes made a rush for the poil*, and
quite a number of^hites and blacks
were wounded In tbe encounter. This
is all we care to say about it.

Xo Place Like Fairfield?Some Good Suggestions
to our Representatives..
Mr. Editor: After my return from
the Louisville reunion and an exten-1
sire trip through Indiana, Arkansas,
Illinois, Missoari and the Lone Star
State, procrastination itole from me
some very fine resolutions of substituting
myself for my old and esteemed
friend Jennings, who was
conspicious for his absence, and thus
your readers were deprived of the annual
letter that he always wrote in re
gard to these trips, and I, as his sel fappointed
subutitute, will only say
that after my various trips over different
parts of the uoion and seeing the
many fine cities, rich lands, and fine
r.rnns thaf. f&binc evrvthin?r into con
r ? o "-rf o
sideration, there is no piace like old
South Carolina, and there are no finer
avenoes open for the various vocatioa6
of life than the old red bills of Fairfield
Bat, Mr. Editor, I am digressing
from my first intention and I will proceed
to.mention ihe ideastbatl hsve
in view and will net go into details of
either but casually mention them with
the hope that you may bring out some
discussion in yonr paper, and tbat cur
representatives will give both matters
their consideration and use their very
best efforts to remedy them through
The first matter is one that has been
discussed for >ears, and still there is
room for improvement?the road law.
Why not have the road law so amended
that it will read tbat all persons
liable for road duty shall perform so
many days work on the public highway
during the year instead of may
perform so many cUys work, aad
either dispense with the office of
supervisor or relieve him of lookiog
after the roads and ekct or appoint
ooe roadv commissioner, pa? him a
good salary?a thousand dollars if
necessary?and he most be a man of
experience with a g-><>d knowledge of
civil engineering (and ;1ih nquisits for
qualification ba ?o 6tipulared that no
one except' he possess the required
scientific knowledge need apply) and
give him not only supervision of the
chningang bat of all sections of lands
in ihe county and I am tatitfied she
results will be sood roads, and not
the apology for thtm that we now
Now tde next matter is in regard to
a law that is already on the statute
book but like a good many other laws
that public sentiment has never interested
itself in enoogb to -c?p that it is
executed, and it is one tu ihit h-.*
been widely discussed but ?? *i.scb
nr\ oilonnafo romor?v ihfln hp?"i hrmiohf
forward?that is the carrying of concealed
weapons?the ready pistol,
bowie-knife or razor that have caused
so mach bloodshed and misery and
furnish our courts with so much work
annually. Why not appoint two detectives
in each county, one white and
one colored, pay Ibem a nominal
salarv, sav $150 per annum, ^bicb
would be more than paid by fines, &c.;
and by the way, Mr. Editor, did it
ever occur to you that this habit is
confined mostly to young whites and
the young negroes; very few of the
older whites and ante-bellum darkies
carry them except for self-defence.
In conclusion, Mr. Editor, I think an
editorial from you on the subject
might bring out discussion and crystalize
some' idea that our representatives
might take some action upon.

We are having some real cold
weather now; coming as it does after
such remarkably warn weather makes
us feel it mach more sensibly than we
would were it otherwise.
Farmers have abeut finished harvesting
their crops; some scattered
j cotton jet remains to be picked; this,
| however, will not amount to much, as
I the recent freeze destroyed the much
anticipated top crop. Crops, generally
speaking, were very poor in this
section; especially was this the case
where the hail storm prevailed daring
the summer; below the hail-stricken
belt, ia Lower LoD^town, the crops
are better.
The advance in the price of cotton
is certainly a ioarce of great gratification
to the farmers. Notwithstanding
the loss in yield, they have been
enabled by toe advance in price to

been accomplished.

Mr. J. E. Lilly, a prominent citizen
of Hannibal, Mo., lately had a wonderfal

The clocks made by the original exporters

There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's SwampRoot,
the great kidney remedy fulfills every
wish in curing rheumatism, pain in the
back, kidneys, liver, bladder and every part
of the urinary passage. It corrects inability
to hold water and scalding pain in passing
it, or bad effects following use of liquor,
wine or beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up many times
during the night. The mild and the extra-,
ordinary effect of Swamp-Root is soon
realized. It stands the highest for its wonderful
cures of the most distressing cases.
