PbiwIdk Away. j
Gen. John B. Gordon of Georgia Is dead,
aged 72.
Gen. James Longstreet or ueorgia, aiea a ?
week before the death of Gen. Gordon,
aged S3. ^
And bo It may be seen tbat tbe officers, as
well as tbe private soldiers, are passing over *
tbe River. Tbe racks are thinning out, and c
In a little while, when we close up, tbe lront t
will not make a long line. Only one-eighth
of those who volunteered Into the army are ^
living today. Very few newspapers are now
Issued In which one or more deaths of olo 8
sold lent Is not recorded.
Owing to the need of some of the veteraDs, y
It seems to be a pity tbat a liberal pensloD
should not be paid to all tbose who served
their oountry faithfully In the supreme struggle.

Senator Blake, and Representatives Mazy
Donald, M. P. DeBruhl and J. D. Carwlle are
off for Colombia, to look after our interests In
the law-making department. Having full
faith in their wisdom to take care of tbeli
constituents, we have no advice to offer, 01
requests to make. Tbere is, we believe, no
public demand lor further Legislation against
the rallroads.and the cotton mills. The cotton
mills are having a bard time of it, and it
would seem not to be quite the nice thing to
hit them and tbelr employees again. As {
tbere is a strong sentiment in favor of taxing ^
corporations. It might be well to induce otber ^
gudgeons to organize other corporations.
? t
Enforce tbe Law. 1
The Law and Order Leauge is demanding
the enforcement of our liquor laws. So say 8
all. Enforce the dispensary law to tbe let- 1
ter. e
And give all communities tbe right to do t
away with their dispensaries, whenever they
feel so inclined. l
This newspaper has not said what It wish- ^
ed to say on thts subject, for the reason tbat
we were afraid of being misunderstood. We
are standing for the dispensary law, but a
want to be Justin relieving communities of t
the dispensary. It ought to be as easy to
get rid of tbat institution as it 1b to establish t
It. b
^ ?
Dsnirer Threatens. d
Our friend, the Palmstto Post, thinks that v
we are all going to be impoverished by a
. tow sagacious financiers who may get all tbe f
money, and leave tbe remainder of us poor a
Indeed. ^
The historical matters whlob our brother
quotes are Interesting enough, but he need (<
have no fears.
There will be enough money In these parte c

least a hundred years.
Worms and millionaires can't affect that
part.

' In view of the lnoreased sales of liquor,
might It not be a good Idea to Increase tbe
prioe of tbe bottled stuff? The less liquor we
get for a quarter, tbe better It is for us.
t
Tbe Press and Banner office never bad more ^
Job printing than at present. Faithful ser- ^
