Ix the debate on the increase of the
army, the argument wa* made as
might have been expected that the
flection of Mr. McKinley was a ratification
of the pulley of maintaining^
large standing army, and it was urged
in the debate that 'Jongress ought to
eo straight ahead and make the neces
8*ry appropriations for the porpose.
The same argument will be used, of
course, in the discussion of the ship
subsidy bill. This bill is the culmination
of paternalism. What would be
thought of the suggestion that the
United States government should pay
- 0?ery - cotton grower one dollar for
every bale of cotton -raised: It would
raise a fearful commotion for Congress
seriously to entertain such a proposi??

is proposed to give oat of the puulic
treasury $9,000,000 annually 10 ship
builders and owners. As a matter of
fact it is a bonus pure and simple, and
it w beyond question that the bill will
be passed by a large majority. The
difference between the favors shown
the cotton planter aod the ?hip bnilder
is that the one lives iu the Sooth and
the other in the North. Sometimes
we think that it wonld not be a bad
idea for the South to cat loose from

say to the North ihat before the electors
voted for a President term3 mast
be made. In this way the South might
hold the balance of power and have
some weight Of course, there are
many objections to this, but it ha?
been suggested. The Southern people
are Democrats, and it is doubtful
whether they could be induced to support
a Republican, whatever terms
might be offered. The South'e lack of
political influence, however, is becoming
more and more apparent,

Editor News and Her old:
It is well for the citizens of Wionsboro,
as well as the Town Council,
before taking any ?teps in the mutter,
to inquire into the power asd authority
oi the town council to order a
special election to decide whether the
to*n of Winnsboro snail issue oonu?
for tbe construction of a railroad from
Camden to Winnsboro, known as tbe
Winnsboro and Camden Railroad.
Under our present Constitution, it
is tbe policy of this State, to charfei
and provide for tbe government of all
towns and citie* under general laws,
as provided in Article YIII, Sect 1,
whicb read? as follows: <;Tbe General
* 1
Assembly &nan provide uy geuerai
laws for tbe organization and classification
of municipal corporations.
The powers of each class shall be defined
so that no such corporations
shall have any powero or be subject to
any restrictions other than all corporations
of the same class>." Section 3
of the same Article further provides
that, "Tbe General Assembly shall restrict
that powerj of cities and towns
to levy taxes and assessments, to borJ
row money and to contract debts, and
j no tax or assessment shall be levied
I nnponsncs nf law. for nab
iU ^/U? OV4MUWV V* ? .. | _ ^ t
lie purpose* specified by law." It is
also provided in Section 7 of the same
srticle that ''no city or town in this
State shall hereafter incar any bonded
debt which, including existing bonded
indebtedness, shall exceed eight per
centum of the assessed valne of the
taxable property therein."
By Act of the General Assembly of
this Stafe, approved the 11th February,
1897, the municipal authoiitiea of any
city or town of this State upon the
petition of a majority of the free holders
of said city or town are authorized
to order a special election in any
such city or town for the purpose of
issuing bonds tor porcna^ing, repairing
or improving of city or town hall,
or park or grounds tberefor, markets
and guard house, enlarging, extending
or establishing electric light plants
or other light*, or water works, or
sewerage, erecting, repairing or altering
school baildings, fire protection
purposes, improvement of street* aud
side walks or any other corporate purposes
*et forth in said pe iti >n, Provided,
That the aggregate bond* d indebtedness
of anv city or town shall
never exceed eight per contain of the
assessed Vilne of the .taxable property j
This Act, jt will be observed, does
no; include bond* for the construction
or equipment of a railroad, nor can
they, in my judgment, be included under
the terms of "auy corp >rate purpose",
as the bnilding and eqaipment
of a railroad uo not come within the
Junctions or powers of ?.he municipal
corporation of Winnsboro, which is
vestpd with limited powers strictly for
municipal purposes. Our Supreme
Court has decided that even under the
Constitution of 1868, which does not
contain the restrictive provisions of
our present Constitution anActau-j
tDoriziDg .lownsmps 10 issue uvuuo tw
aid in tbe construction of a railroad,
was not for a corporate purpose, and
that tbe bonds were tbarefore invalta.
If the town of Winn6boro could
legally issae bouds to aid in the conmy
jodgment, it wouid be unwise to
issue bonds for sucb a purpose to the
full limit ot its power to contract any
bonded debt under the Constitution, j
and thereby deprive tbe town council
of the power to incur any bonded
debt fur legritima'e corporate purposes,
such as are ennm-iiaed in tbe Act ol
the Legislature a o?f qaoted. Debts
contracted for each It-gi imats corporate
purposes are f>r the benefit of
the town, and if any itic ti.e is derived
from improvements or .-tinctures for
which each deb!8 are *ncn red, the
(own receives the fall benefi . It
seetns, 'rora the language used in the
petition pablished in The News an*d
Herald, that the bonds pioposed to
be issaed for the constrnction of the
Winnsboro and Camden Railroad are
intended as a bonus to the railroad
company, as nothing is s-?id about the
town of "Winnsboro receiving stock in
said cmpany or any;5 i~g tor th? I
I J3 ~
The town ol Winnsbor .as now a
bonded indebtedness of teven thousand
dollar?. Patting the aiS3?f?d value
of tbe taxable property at five hundred
thousand dollais, thirty-three
thousand dollars additional would
cover its constitutional limit of bonded
indebtedness. A. S. Douglass.
Mr Elliott Say* that the Test Will be Mado
Before the Proper Authorities?Difference
of Opinion to be Expected
Mr. Editor: Noting a communica
tion to your paper a few days ago on
tbe legal aspects of the proposition to
issue bonds by tbe town for tbe benefit
of the Winnsbsro and Camden
Railway, I would remark, that, if
there is no legality in the proposed
is8u<>, voters need haye no hesitation
iu voting for their issue, according to
the wbr of the venerable counsel at
law. It it neual for lawyers to find
two sides 10 every legal proposition;
indeed the members of tbe profession
make their living by finding two
sides. Moreover it is not ordinary
practice to have the,public pass on tbe
legality of any proposition, bnt the
courts; and it is tbe intention, a3 well
as the desire, of tbe promoters of the
Winnsboro and Camden Railway to
thorocghly test all legal matters relating
to the issae of these bonds be
fore the proper authorities.
As to the wisdom of snch a proceeding,
it is expected that the cautious
and the timid, and the aged will take
the conservative side, which always
hesitates to make eflort, or take reasonable
risk. There is snch a thing as a
man losing his life by saviDg it, the
good book tells ns, and there may be
such a tbing as a community 16>ing
property by the effort to save taxes.
Theie may be?uch a thing as losing
the priocipa! of the debt by looking too
much at the interest feature. Thefioal
question may yet be, not wl.etfer the
town c*n issue the fi tv thousand bonds
at all, but whether eveu if they do issue
them toDooranhical reasons mav not
necessitate a different route. One
ihing snre, it will take an account of
boi!<i> equal to a!i the (owe c?n Irgaily
i-sne, :o c>ff*et ?he loss, duj to the
topography of th^ conn:ry, that the
promoters will saffer by reason of
coming here.

Your Kidneys.
Unhealthy Kidneys Make Impure Biocd.
All the blood in your body passes through
your kidneys once every three minutes.
... . The kidneys are your
blood purifiers, they filter
out the waste or
impurities in the blood.
If they are sick or out
of order, they fail to do
their work.
Pains, aches and rheumatism
come from excess
of uric acid in the
blood, due to neglected
kidney trouble.
Kidney trouble causes quick or unsteady
heart beats, and makes one feel as though
they had heart trouble, because the heart is
over-working in pumping thick, kidney
poisoned blood through veins and arteries.
It used to be considered that only urinary
troubles were to be traced to the kidneys,
but now modern science proves that nearly
all constitutional diseases have their beginning
in kidney trouble.
If you are sick you can make no mistake
by first doctoring your kidneys. The mild
