niOS. J. ADAMS,.EDITOR THURSDAY, OCT. 19, 1893. Charleston will have no Gala Week "this fall. It has been post poned until spring. Nelly Bly, who made the fast trip around the world a year or so ago, has joined the Salvation Army. _fc The Newberry Ob" . that Newberry w:i' a candid??1 SP- . President ot the Siace A j lin nee has i&5v:"": ? ?o jottonif th-?-. car> do so. ~??t?. ...;a bug Seuators are said Oe weakening in the United States Senate, but President Cleve fc land is still as stiff-necked as an - j Egyptian Pharaoh. The annual meeting of the State Bible Association will be held in Orangeburg on Wednesday, Octo ber 25lh inst, The Rev. Dr. Horn, of Charleston, will deliver the an nual address. 4 . . The first sentense for violation of the Dispensary law was by Judge Wallace, at Walhalla. George J. McAlister pleaded guilty and was sent to the penitentiary at hard la bor for two years. It would seem from the Augusta Chronicle that half of the ex hibits from the World's Fair will be transferred to the Augusta Ex position before the opening day on the 14th of November. The killing frosts that are re ported from the Mississippi valley on Sunday morning last will not be so killing, we opine, as reported, but enough so at any rate to run cotton up a few points. Nineteen lives were lost at Georgetown in the storm of last Friday night. On Magnolia beach the tide rose three or four feet in ten minutes, the waves sweeping the houses from their foundations. "Charleston will not crow so loud hereafter. Last Tuesday about twenty State constables raided that city from centre to circumference, arrested a large number of blind tigers, and the peeple didn't do anything but stand off and cuss.'' So says the Piedmont Headlight. In the opinion of the Edgefield ADVERTISER South Carolina, in the olden time, did a little loo much hero worshipping, and nowadays a little too little. If the ADVERTISER will put its latter-day heroes on dress parade we may be able to point out the reason for the vari ance.-The State. The ADVERTISER has no "dress parade" heroes in stock. The State's heroes are entitled^ to the cake in "the "dress parade bnsiness. In his message to Congress on the Sherman bill the President used this significant expression: "This matter rises above the plane of party politics." This utterance means, if it means anything, that President Cleveland, on this par ticular matter of a rep3al of the Sherman law, will not be guided by the wishes of the democratic party expressed in its Chicago plat form or anywhere else. Senators Butler uud Irby each made speeches in the Senate last week on identically the same line, that is, opposition to the repeal of the Sherman law without a substi tute, and both of th->m "sassed" President Cleveland. Wo cannot see why Senator Butler is not, just now, as good a "ramracker" as any of us, and to use an expression of the late Judge Platt, he and Irby on this particular issue are "pretty much of a muchness. RING THE CHANGES ON IT. Senator Butler in concluding his speech in the United States Senate in favor of free silver, made use of the following ringing sentence : "You may strike down habeas corpus ; you may destroy the bili of rights ; you may abolish trial by jury and other monuments of American liberty, anda people ac-, cu&tomed to freedom will get along some how, and after some fashion, but if you place the people ot this or any other country at the mercy of a privilcgsd money class, you had better take the hot winds of the desert and let them sweep over that oountry, for destruction will follow as sure as the day follows the night." Senator Butler is right, and he might have gone farther and Btated with equal truth that the very con dition of affairs he deprecited was actually in esse. By their own confession the syndicate of national bankers precipitated the crisist brough which we are just now passing, and they could only have brought about such a state of financial distress because they have -'the people of this country a,t their mercy." -LL AND JIM. Bill : I have changed the name ot my dog to Tom Watson. Jim : What for? Is he any ac count? Bill: No; but I thought, maybe, to chango his name would improvo him. Tom Watson is a rn1' smart man. Jim: Yes, To^ might}' sm? - ' -ut that v. help - : n ic d< % . li ' ' 'Xi TymW&csos? There is such . hir:?, if yj)vi wu; ??XO*O8< j hi bi n little .. :art. . chat : >? ^o has been ? Tom Vi atson and third . a> v to y ou? ' I--don't care to mention . carnes. But the democratic party anrt doing us right, who have been fighting, voting, and starving to do its bidding so long. Why does President Cleveland so bitterly op pose our having silver money? Jim: I do not distrust Mr. Cleveland's honesty, but I do not believe he is right in opposing sil ver. At the same time to change your name from a democrat to a third partyite won't improve your chances of getting relief any more than it would your .dog. It viii only prolong the suffering to do so. There are thousands pf democrats in South Carolina who will not desert their party, even though they know' it to be wrong, and those who do, will find themselves weak** than before; besides if the whole party can't carry out its platform, which demands silver and gold, what chance will a third party have which is much weaker in numbers, and with no record be hind it? Bill : But, Jim, we have been waiting so long for the democratic party to get into power and at last when it does get the lines in hand its chief executive, tho President, goes back on the promises of the party to give relief to the people. Cleveland has been in office a good while, and Congress, a democratic Congress, has, owing to his influ ence, not done a living thing to help U3 cut of the mire. Jim: Yet, Bill, that is substan tially true. But the choice is now between present, distress and future ruin. If you desert the democratic party now, the republicans will elect the next President and the next Congress, a force bill will go through these bodies and negro domination will result. The j West can dicker with the third party, but the South cannot, especially South Carolina. In the Western States a good many ; republicans are going in the third party in their State politics, but in federal matters they remain steadfast to the old party. Are you willing to swap local government for a few silver dollars? to be fooled into selling your birthright for suoh a mess of pottage as that? Besides, President Cleveland will never be able to dominate any subsequent Congress or even the present one as he has been doing in this silver business; his lines are already weakening. He has, in my humble opinion, reached the acme of his fame and influence. The very senators who are now doing his work have always been and are now in favor of silver, but for some unaccountable reason they are pulling back instead of going forward, Vorhees, Carlisle, Gordon, and all declare they are bi-met tahsts. They are ashamed or afraid to come out openly against silver, although working that way temporarily. There is another reason, Bill, why you should stand up to the rack until the fodder is put in it, and that is this : You are a Tillman ite, or at least }'ou wear the badge, a sitting down collar: now if many of the reformers desert to the third party it will give tho reform movement an awful black eye, and Tillman ism, as it is called, will be wiped out, root and branch, in the next campaign, The few third partyites in South Carolina will vote the Tillman ticket anyway, then why go over to them and lose thous ands of Tillman-democrats, who wonld prefer to see such a result, Tillmanism wiped out, than to leave their old mother, the demo cratic party. Bill: Well, Jim, you have preached a mighty good sermon from a mighty small text, and I reckon I will have to hearken. You talk sound, and I expect you are right. My old woman has been telling me that the Bible said "not to run after strange gods," and says she, "that Tom Watson is the strangest god I ever seed in these parts." Jim, I won't change my dog's name. He ain't ketching anything, but I will stand by him till hell freezes over and we can both skeet across on the ice, me and my dog. SENATOR IRBY. The Washinion Post has the following t.) say about Senator Irby and his recent and only speech in the United States St-nate : Senator Irby's speech on Wednesday atcracted moro atten rion than many of his disapproving colleagues would like to admit.lt was not so nrach the BtyV de livery of'the trite SP-' ?n tained, as it WP- JO > . . .. ? finite pop^ positif s**" . afch-Osiroil ?? s>?.'...-. aid : .

Senator Dixon, of Rhode xsland, looked up from his desk stopped writing (the.writes more than any other man in the Senate) and turned his car around into a better position for listening, and went on writing; There wasn't much need of a quorum calling while Irby taked. The Senate was listening so not much to what he said, as for what he was going to say next. Irby has the same sort of a face that Catlin puts on some of his great Sioux and Cheyenne chiefs. Short and broad, wide from ear to ear, nar rowing in on a. compressed mouth. All typical of a man whose friend ship is preferable to his enmity; a man fierce in his friendships and dangerous in his hates, noth ing half way about him at any point. There are indications of a com promise on the silver question. President Cleveland and Secretary Carlisle are offering, it is said, an olive branch to the silver senators in the 6hape of a two hundred million dollar issue of bonds. And this is just what the National Bank Syndicate would most desire, as it would be a perpetuation of national banks for years to come, and of course these banks would handle these bonds, and tho people would still be at their mercy as now they are. Compromises on economic questions are always wrong. Besides such an arrange ment would not settle the matter as to whetherjhis country should have a single or double standard, but would indefinitely postpone such settlement. The terms offered are too hard. Let tlie battle go on ! The cyclone lasi Friday did great damage at St. Augustine and other.points in Florida. On the Dispensary. Kev. C. W. Creighton, in Christian Neighbor. Dear Bro. Browue : We so heartly endorso yours position on the Dis pensary and the Methodist Church that we are constrained to depart from our usual custom and write you accordingly. Your head ?3 level, and just at this time a few more of the same calibre might save* our CLuroh serlOUB injury and in some pbecs ruin. Surely our preachers are not thinking of the condition of tho country and the future effect of the exercise of discipline at this time on our Church. We are in a revolution. They never go backwards and if our Church puts herself in the current she will be swept away. History does rebord a similar . tale of things in all the annals of our cuunty. Our people are divided upon great issues ; they have de liberately made up tneir mind, and they will net be driven from their position. Besides the now famaus para graph of our Discipline was enacted with reference to a different state of socie'y, and intended to apply to the vendor of spirituous liquors for private gain. It was not designed to apply to public officers in the employ os the State govern ment, and can only be applied to such by a stretch of legal construc tion disallowed in criminal pro cedure and practice. Forbearance, caution and moderation cannot and will not hurt either the chara ter or the sprituality of the Church. Besides, did we not crate the very sentiment that justifies our people in accepting the official position of dispenser? It is amusing to see men who a short time ago boasted that they had no convictions, be cause convictions are unpepular rushing into print to declare their convictions, Not every man that jumps with the flowing tide "gets there., One day they are flinging "the rock of gamblers and bar keepers," and the next day they are pounding upon some humble dispenser. If it were not so com monplace we might make some ejaculation touching consistency. Would it not be the part cf wisdom to jjwait until our General Con ference meets and then submit the true state of things to that body for prayerful consideration and direc tion? To do thia we mnst have men who will submit to that body tho condition of things in the State, and not their personal views. This we can do. As I go over the country and see the handsome churches built upon the ruins of the Methodist Church, love to my own spiritual mother bids me be cautious. This atiri 3acra fames of Piastern merchants may at last prove to be a cave larger than that of Macbpelah, into which this Con gres will descend, and bo heard of no more.-Bishop Keener in Nashville Christain Advocate. HOLD YOTJK COITON. The Advice of Presiden Evans of The State Allanee. ! BEXNETTSTILLE, October ?,1893. ! To the Cotton Planters and [embers of the Alliauce ?of the been a storms Ith the joint, There Cotton States: This has bad years for cotton ; with and floods and droughts, wij elements and seasons out or as it were, the crop is shortJ will be no cotton to pick ? worth speaking of after the 1st of ?Jiovem ber in the Atlantic Stated. "The Texas crop is reported to be. from 300,000 to htilf a million bales less than last year. The prico jof cot ton is about th 9 average cost of production. American skinners are in a large measure oui of the market on accounnt of the: impos sibility of procuring mtfney on time loans to invest in cotton, and the price is governed almost en tirely by what Europe wp] pay for it. \J *" Now what are you goingio do? He that provideth not for his ow n household "hath denifed the faith and is worse than un infidel." The cotton farmer can command the situation by holding on to his cot ton until trade conditions improve and those who want it and obliged to have it come after it with their money. Hold on to every bale of cotton where you can possibly do so without injury to your creditor until the price advances. Make every honorable effort to meet your obligations, but hold your cotton ; you are entitled to a higher price if there is any virture in thu law of supply and demand. There is iv ither justice nor rea son in the farmer always sacrific ing himself that others may le-^p to for!uno. But present action is not all that is necessary; plan for tb.;3 future. The funner buys too much ; ho should be always a seller ; prepare to reduce thc cotton acreage for next year and to raise year own corn, wheat, and bacon at homo. Xot until you do this will you be independent and able to fix yonr own price. I take this opportunity of appealing to the press through out the cotton States to help the farmers in their righteous efforts to procure a ?living price for their cotton before it all get?? out of their hands. I take this opportu nity of appealing to our oreditors to do what they can to help ns in this effort to prevent the sacrifice of our year's labor. W. D.
