At the opening of the present session
congress, which convened* in Wash
ington on Monday, President Me-,
Kinley transmitted odo of the most
voluminous messesages ever written by
of the chief executives of the
The Chinese question is gone
iuto in detail, though the president
makes no suggestions us to the settle
meot of the difficulties in the orient.
The prosperity of the country is dwelt
upon at tome length with an exultant
undertone which unwittingly reveals
the inward belief that McKinley and
prosperity are one and inseparable,
cow and lorever. Another long para
graph of self-praise recites the plelh
oric condition of the treasury. There
is no doubt but what there is a hand**
some surplus on hand now, but it has
been raised by a war tax in times of
comparative peace. And there will
that surplus be by the time Mark
Hanna gets his two million dollar ship
subsidy fastened on the people, when a
few thousand more pensioners are ad
ded to the roll, when the standing
army comprises one hundred thousand
men, when tbe trusts and combines
get their share by way of extortionate
government contracts, and when the
tale of the extravagances of the present
congress is all told? A surplus is
something in which Republicans take
great delight.
Taken in its broadest sense the mes«*
sage of the president shows an
excellent condition of public affairs,
looking upon them in the present, but
the sun always shine9 the brightest
just ns the storm clouds rise above the
horizon. Hopes run high now, but no
man knows the dangers that are just
ahead. The president has reasou to
think that bis policies are acceptable
to the people and the Republican party,
druuk with victory, .will feel careless
of public sentiment and criticism. The
S?:ntinel is one who hopes that the
greatest blessings of progress and
prosperity may come to this * nation,
under whatever parly that may admin
ister its government, aud that there
will be enough honest and patriotic
men iu both houses of congress lo
prevent the pround old ship of state
from running foul of snags.

na think that conditions are about as

possibly be, so we are content to let
time wag on, and if they are right the

they are o( that llberul turn of business
Ind which sees the necessity of spend
ing money in order to make money.
This is evidenced hy the large amount
of printer's ink used by them. They
issue large quantities of well-worded
and well-written circulars and posters,
which by the way, the SENTINEL has
the pleasure Of printing. Charleston,

advertising pages of the Charleston

Charleston has elected to die of dry rot
and her merchants uro helping her by
holding back on the reins and, driving

advertising pays and they will answer,
A town is judged abroad by the
amount of advertising displayed in the
nowspapers published there. It is an
unvarying criterion to the status of
things, and a glance at Its columns will
reveal whether the town wants your
business or simply does not
whether "school keeps or not."
vertising also brings trade that will go
elsewhere when home merchants are
careless about advertising what they
have to sell. Large sums of money

and other points simply because large

The merchant who does not ask tho
public to visit his stole, nnd|who [does
not advertise intelligently, and persist
ently, cannot expect to do ajgood* busi
ness. Advertising has become a
necessity lu this age, and.he who treats
the matter lightly will find the wind

sea across, which the trade winds of
commerce will never blow again. In
short he will be "busied."
Under the above heading the Clarks
dalo Challenge, edited by Mrs. Hala
Hammond Butt, publishes the follow
ing forcible arraignment of a class of
people who constitute the most danger
ous element in Southern society; a cluss
who not only degrude themselves but
who put viciousness, daring and crime
into tbe easily corrupted minds of tbe
negro population. Mrs. Butt says :
"The servant question, so old aud yet so
thoroughly vital and constantly recurring,
as to Its vexatious aspects, is at high tide lu

well understood, rests in the independence
