At this election there will be two aldermen at large and one or two ward aldermen selected. There are a number of candidates in the held and the election will be watched closely. The report of the treasurer showed a balance on hand which is a matter of congratulation. R. H. McConnell, of this city, has been appointed as field deputy U. S. marshal with headquarters here. He will work with Capt. J. Wilson Marshall who for some years has been U. S. commissioner. Two of Rock Hill's citizens will be married on the 17th, Inst; Hon. John T.

Mr. William Cooper and family, of Williamsburg, are also here. Mr. Cooper has for some years occupied the position of superintendent of education in his county. He was years ago a cadet at the King's Mountain Military school in Yorkville, when that school was in the charge of Col. Asbury Coward, and already has found friends In his new home. News has reached here of a death In which our people are interested, that of Mrs. H. U. Parker, of Bishopville, a sister of Mrs. J. J. Hull, of this city and the wife of Mr. H. U. Parker who, with two children, survives her. Mrs. Parker was the daughter of the late J. B. Boyd, of Lancaster. Mr. J. William Brown, aged 56 years, a prominent farmer of Bethesda township died here Monday, at the home of Mr, H. T. Frew, after a lingering Illness with stomach trouble. He leaves a brother, Mr. Horace Brown and a sister, Miss Lizzie Brown. The funeral was conducted at Bethesda church by the Rev. W. L. Lingle, of Rock Hill, In the absence of the pastor, the Rev. J. H. Hall. Quite a number of friends and relatives from Rock Hill attended. Mr. Brown had many friends both ^ here and in the country where he has always lived highly respected. There are quite a number of business ch&nges in evidence as one makes the rounds since the beginning of the year. Mr. Joseph B. Gaston, who for years has been with the Roddey Merchantlle Co., is now with the SmlthFewell, Co. John J. Landers, who has been the manoffHo ,\t (ho . T"?nrHnfirtnn nower , plant. Will take S. T.

Whiteside, a young son of Mr. W. S. Boyd came across the evidence of some ofieW-rascaHty. The find was In the shape of a lot of dry goods, consisting of about a dozen complete sijits of clothes, a number of odd pairs of pants, overcoats, shoes and other valuable articles, the value of the whole batch being in the neighborhood of $300. With the exception of the overcoats the goods were Identified by Mr. J. S. Glass, who runs a store In Edgemoor. The bulk of these articles had been taken from a room over Mr. Glass's store and as he had not had occasion to go Into that part of the building during that day he had not made the discovery that anything was missing.* Evidences were found that the store had been entered by a second story window. The overcoats have as yet not been identified. The New Year's dance given In Friedhelm's hall, though not so large an affair as some that the club has ? given, was one of the most pleasant and most enjoyed in the history of the organization.

Case or Roed Smoot.?Mr. Reed Smoot might just as well give up the fight. A million women are demanding his scalp. We see It stated In the Washington Post that thirty-eight bound volumes, comprising a thousand petitions, in the Reed Smoot case will be filed with the secretary of the senate as soon as the committe submits Its report. The petitions are being bound In New York. The names of more thar 1,000,000 women have been affixed pleading with the senate to take a stand for the purity of the home. Before the report Is submitted to the senate the committee will endeavor to obtain the exact language of the test oath taken in the endowment house, to which Smoot subscribed while a boy. Several witnesses have sworn to hav ins: taken this oath, but the exact wording has not been fully established. Senator Smoot himself when on the stand; refused to repeat the oath as he remembered It. But the refusal of the Mormons to divulge the oath ought to be sufficient cause for barring Smoot from Congress.?Charlotte Chronicle. ? Washington January 2: The supreme court of the United States today affirmed the decision of the Kentucky court of appeals In the case of James B. Howard vs. the state of Kentucky. Howard was tried three times In the circuit court of Franklin county, Kentucky, on the charge of murdering Governor Wm. Goebel, of Kentucky, on January 30, 1900, and convicted each time. He Is now under sentence to life Imprisonment and he brought the case to this court to secure a review of the ruling of the Kentucky court of appeals, affirming a decision of the circuit court against allowing him another trial. His principal allegation was that the proceedings of the trial court In the matter of selecting and discharging jurymen was irregular, and In violation of the 14th amendment. Justice McKenna expressed the opinion of the court that the plaintiff was not denied any rights secured to him under that amendment. Shonts Is Touchy?It Is said that the president is having trouble in preventing the resignation of the chairman of the isthmian canal commission. Mr. Shonts has not taken kindly to criticism directed at him and administration of canal affairs in the senate and, so rumor runs would have stepped out ere this had the president not besought him to remain. Should criticisms continue it would not be surprising if Mr. Shonts decides to throw up his job, despite the president's solicitations. and return to the management of the Clover Leaf road, of which he is president.

This is the taking title of a book having peculiar interest for us. In the first place it is by one of the most gifted clergymen in South Carolina, Rev. J. Walter Daniel, D. D., of the Washington St. Methodist church, Columbia. Dr. Daniel has 'not only won a foremost place in the pulpit, but from time to time he has sent out essays in the line of fiction, "Character Studies" of our southern people, of a genial humor, and having real merit. The volume before us is easily the best work that he has done of this sort. It shows a more practiced pen, a closer study of conditions, a more graphic recital of life-scenes. On the author's account then?a man growing and ripening among us, of splendid powers, reflecting credit on our whole state?on the author's account the book is of special interest. But it appeals to us as a vivid portrayal of "Reconstruction" times in South Carolina; beginning with the Confederate soldier's sad return home, dwelling at length upon the Ku Klux episode, and cjosing with the great "red-shirt" movement of 1876. It brings out one fact that we do not remember any previous writer to have emphasized, that "reconstruction" would not have been possible?at least as it was?without the co-operation of the renegade southerner. It pillories unmercifully this "scalawag." We burn with indignation as we read of these cormorants, who began by dodging the war; growing fat on government contracts and finally joining hands with the negroes and the "carpet bagger" to plunder our commonwealth; while we are touched with tender pathos as we see the heroism of the missing leg or empty sleeve, a'.l glorified with woman's steadfast devotion. The true intent and normal development of the Ku Klux Klan is given by one fair yet sympathetic. It is a pity that the "red-shirt" movement has not received fuller treatment. but the author writes me that perhaps in future editions of the book this may be given. The book has an especial interesl for York county readers, as the scene shifts during the Ku Klux times tc Yorkville and vicinity: and one of the most delicious pieces of humor it contains is that of the examination of Sam Hicks before a military court al Yorkville; Sam insisted that our little I city was in Xorth Carolina. " 'Because I know thar ain't no state as big as it's from here to whar I was foteh up.' " (He had come from Laurens.) The book is published by The Xeale Pub. Co.. Xew York and Washington but can be had of the author for $1.50 We do trust it may have a wide anc thoughtful reading. It is part of the history of our state that no lover ol Carolina can afford to neglect. , T ! 2outi ; i ^ f nun i wii J ^ hie !

You Can Trust The Mutual Benefit Life Insurance Company as you would an old friend. It has served three generations of men, and during its entire career, covering a period of sixty-one years, has never deceived or disappointed a single policy holder. Among its policy holders today are Grandfathers, Fathers and Sons, and many of them have attested their satisfaction In a series of letters which the Company has published and which ore yours for the asking. The company Is stronger In the confidence and affections of the American people today than ever before. Of course, the other fellow wants your business and he has just as much right to want it as I have and all that, but if you will investagate the record of his company and the provisions of its contracts, as compared with the Mutual Benefit, I am sure you will decide that it is not as much to your interest to insure in his company.
