We have had customers to tell us that other merchants would tell them we could not sell a good article for this money, but they take our goods when they bring in samples to compare from 85c. to $1. We ask for no dateing, but pay the spot cash down, and get a big discount, and even get the interest on the money we pay down, when other houses are compiled to charge you with this dateing. This is why we can sell you 46 inch Black Henrietta at 75c. per yard, when you can't buy it elsewhere for less than 85c. or $1.

I The Press and Banner BY HUGH WILSON. Twelve IPages. Wednesday, October 10,1894 ReNiftfance id tireeuivllle. It seems that the people of Greenville are disposed to defy tbe law which authorizes tbe search of dwellings tbat are suspected of having lu them contraband liquor; and a lady, in a delicate condition, adds to the com plication. For our own part, we do not see why the service of the warrant by the Sheriff would not have answered every purpose, and to which the accused did not object. But we do not Bee why the accused should demaod the right to name the person who should serve It. If the house bas no liquor in -It, we do not understand the reason tor declining to prove innocenoe of tbe chargeBut, whether In this particular instance there is cause for all this trouble, it matters little as to the final and absolute enforcement of the dispensary law. The liquor law in this State must be enforced, or else the civil law la overthrown. It Is no doubt true that many people despise tbe dispensary law, but, as good citizens It is their duty to obey it, until It is repealed, and they will likely find that tbey cannot muster sumciem lorce 10 resist ine power 01 the State. The constables should be respectful and considerate Id enforcing a law which many liquor dealers and others believe to be InlquU tous. Ouly such force as Is necessary should be used. A majority of the people of South Carolina endorse the dispensary law, and It seems that It has oome to stay, and it Is to be hoped that neither violators of the law, nor those charged with it enforcement, may excite the other to deeds of bloodshed. The law will, and must be exiorced, no mat* ter who opposes It or who attempts to override it. No Individual can long resist the power of the State. The Evening Post. We have reoeived a copy of the Charleston Evening Post, and welcome lttoour exchange list. Mr. Hartwell M. Ayer, recently of the Florence Times, Is tbe editor. He made a first rate paper of the Times, and we doubt not that In his larger field, he will achieve bouors and distinction. Mr. Ayer is a good writer and a good journalist. Lecture Postponed. A iolai>pam In Row T. .T Orlpr RtAtitf that Rev. T. W. Sloan Is sick, and cannot deliver the promised lecture to night in the Associate Reformed church. Mr. Sloan will deliver the lecture at some future time. The men who are urging the Constitutional Convention may be very loyal and patriotic to the rich and the educated classes, but that Convention may Btrlke a blow at the liberty and rights of the poor and uneducated. The boast that the proposed Convention would disfranchise the poor and uneducated negro should be resented by every honest and proud spirited white man who has no property or education. That boast or that threat to take the ballot from the poor negro and the uneducated negro, applies with equal force to the poor and uneducated white man. If you are a poor man, or an uneducated man, vote against the Convention. The politicians, as well as the rich and educated men favor tbe convention. If they can eliminate the poor white trash ana the negro from participating in tbe government they can run the thing more to tbelr own notion, even if It doesn't suit you as well. While we believe the Convention is beneficial and desirable for the wealthy and intelligent clauses, yet the poor and uneducated citizen places his rights in peril by ordering u Convention to make a Constitution, which his masters may to force upon them, whether it suits him or not ENTERPRISING MERCHANT. 0 Liberal Offer of tiooda on Account of ? i'hauge of Bualneaa. Mr. Abe Rosenberg, of Oreenwood, Is one of the most thrifty and reliable merchants in the up-country. He went to Qreenwood a few years ago without money, but now he is well off, having made a small fortune. He has concluded to reduce the clothing line of business ana aevoie nis wnoie energies to the milinery business. He is amblUoub to have the finest and largest ladies store In upper Carolina, aud In order that he may tbe belter gratify bis desires, be has concluded to close out bis stock of clothing regardless of ooat. This clothing was bought at the beginning of the season, but since then Mr. Rosenberg has concluded to quit the clothing business entirely, and in order that he might tbe more readily dispose ol his stock, ne requests us to announce that he will give special bargains to tbe readers of the Press and Banuer for the next sixty days. Believing that Mr. Rosenberg means all that be says, the Press and Banner would urge upon Its readers to call on htm when they go to Greenwood. He is determined to sell his goods. ABBEVILLE'S BIG BOOM. Another Enterprlne Added to the City. Our city has again good cause to congratulate Itself on adding to her many good and substantial enterprises, tbe great and renowned dry goods bouse ol James Daly & Co,, of Augusta, Georgia.

I ROCKS AT "RURAL DEMOCRAT." lutereNtlng Hlwtory of the Rccent Convention. Greenwood, 8. C., Oct. 3,1894. Editor Press and Banner : One styling himself "Rural Democrat" In an article to the Press and Banner or to-day upon the subject of Greenwood Democrats leaving the party and proceedings ot the SLralgbout Democratic Convention held In the Court House at Abbeville on 24tli ult., has so ruthlessly disregarded the facts and misrepresents the situation as to necessitate a reply which I trust you will be kind enough to publish as prominently as you did the "rural" article In question. "Rural Democrat" says "It was the New County people who defeated the resolution of Capt. McGowan at Abbeville on Monday not to call upon the negroes In their effort to defeat the organized Democracy." I challenge "Rural Democrat" to prove that Capt. MoGowan offered one single resolution In that Convention and dely htm to prove tbat the three resolutions adopted are not attributable to Greenwood's delegates to that Convention, and nre as follows: Resolved 1st, -'That It 1b the sense of tblB Convention that no county or legislative ticket be put In the field In opposition to the one now nominated. 2nd, "That It Is the sense of this Convention that It would be inexpedient to nominate a State ticket at the present time. Had, "Tbat the delegates to the State Conven UUU kUUO L1C1U 1U VA;iUUiUltk UU **) IU 1UBI., fcW uninstructed." There was another resolution ol this set that read "we would net appeal to the negro vote," and would have been carried ban not my friend the Hon. W. H. Parker, of Abbeville, opposed It vlolentl/ on tbe ground that we bad gone through the campaigns of 1890 and 1892 without so do'ng and that It was an insult to the true lemooratlo party to be accused of such a ct arge and useless to defend ourselves against tbe false accusations. Capt. McGowan opposed Mr. Parker's argument, after which, when a reconsideration was had, the resolution was withdrawn by me, and the situation stood as though It bad not been offered. Tbe only resolutions adopted were offered by Greenwood and seconded by Abbeville and "Rural Democrat," under cover of a non de plume, tries to controvert tbe facts, may be for some political reason, As to the majority of delegates being from tbe proposed new county and tbe statement that the good people of Greenwood were about to leave the Democratic party, 1 leave for others more competent than I to answer.
