WELCOME NEW 1EAR.
When we next go to press a new
year will have rolled in upon us,let us
hope with this new year that past ex
peorience will cause us to know better
how to manage our affairs, and let us
all rea'ize that we have reached anoth
er miles-one on life's road. New res
olutions are made the first of every
year, let us hope that these will be
made and stocd to, for the advance
ment of ourselves and our fellows.
Let our business community take on
a renewed vigor and set the wheels
of progress in motion to wheel us in
line with other communities. The
year now about to bid us farewell, is
one in which the nation has made gi
gantic strides and placed itself, beside
the great nations of the earth. The
changes that will come with this con
dition, is as yet mere conjecture, but
as things are to day the new year
Ends the United States flushed with
victory from a war purporting to be
for "humanity." Our possessions have
been.enlarged, if not enhanced, and
our people are more united than ever
before. If there be any virtue in the
solidity of the people of a nation, this
should be the greatest on earth, for
the events of the past few months,
from the declaration of war aainst
Spain, to the decoration of a Repub
lican President with a confederate
badge, has so welded the bond of
Union that we cannot conceive how
there can possibly be any severance;
today we find the abolition of section
al lines, men who won laurels on the
fields of Virginia uniformed in Con
federate grey, now heroes in the na
tional defence uniformed in Federal
These same men who from 61 to 65
fought each other with a valor that
the world stood still in wonder, in
1898 were side by side at El (Janey
and San Juan fighting a common foe,
drawing the same rations and drink
ing from the same canteen. A change
has come to the nation, a grand stride
forward has been taken and the Stars
and Stripes float over places which
a year ago were not dreamed of.
As the nation has moved forward,
the spirit of progress should perme
ate every city, town, hamlet, and
community. Let us push forward in
every branch of life to make the year
1899 an iinprovement on the past.
Major Russell B. Harrison, a son of
ex-president Harrison, was a little

over Fort Atares, and wvas called

Senators Hoar and McLaurin made
speeches at the Charleston hotel last
Thursday evening at the New Eng
land Society dinner wvhich will be re
ceived by the whole country as mas
terpieces of oratory and eloquence.
Colonel Wilie Jones of the 2nd
Regiment has so endeared himself to
the soldiers in his command that
they have petitioned him not to com
ply with the strong petition from the
business men of Columbia, asking
that he return home.
Senator Butler of North Carolina,
the beneficiary of the Populist-Re
publican combination, has prepared a
bill for the United States Senate to
require the government to pension
Confederate soldiers. This proposi
tion will never reach a successful cul
mination, notwithstanding the fact
that we have a re-united country.
The State constables did very
wrong in seizing the wines that were
to be used at the New England So
city dinner in Charleston last week,
but how were they to distinguish be
tween the legitimate and illegitimate
stuff when both were stored in a
place notoriously run as a club blind
tiger. It is a notorious fact that the

It is rumored that Lieutenant Gov
ernor McSweeney will be a candidate
to succeed Governor Ellerbe. Gov

any intention of being a candidate,
but should he enter the race he will
be a winner, as there is no man in
public life iore deserving than he,
for public recognition.
The coming General Assembly
will take up a good part of its time
tinkering with liquor legislation, but
we doubt exceedingly if there will be
many material changes in the law.
The county boards may be abolished

Some of the leading business men
at the North who opposed the elec
tion of Bryan in 1896 are now writing
him letters urging him to enter the
contest again. Andrew Carnegie, the
great steel manufacturer, wrote him
that "I believe you to be the only
man in the country today who can
save us from the twin evils of imper
ialism and militarism." Since Bry
an's resignation from the army there
has come a great change in the minds
of many people, especially since he
has given utterance to his views on
the present policy of the administra
tion. I he battle in the next cam
paign will be fought on many new
questions with the financial issue pre
There is some taik of an effort to
get the legislature to make a law reg
ulating tobacco warehouse charges,
and in some places the warehouse
managers have taken time by the
forelock and published a list of re
duced charges. These matters can
best be regulated by competition and
we think it unwise to tinker with it
by legislation. The tobacco industry
is comparatively in its infancy in this
State and is as yet only experimental;
if rates and charges are tampered
with by the law-making power, it
might have the effect of retarding,
rather than improving the industry.
Let the tobacco business alone until
business men know there is money in
it, and then competition will regulate
it, as it does with all other indus
The free silver men ini Congress are
going to make a vigorous opposition
to a large increase in the army. The
New York 'Journal quotes the figures
showing a total contemplated expen
diture next year of nearly $360,000,
000 for military and naval purposes,
and says: "That is to say, we, the great
acific nation of the world, freed by
our situation from any fear of inva
sion and proud of our ability to de
vote our national energies to the im
provement of our condition, are
spending nearly twice as much for
warlike purposes as Germany, which
is in immediate contact on land with
seven Powers, disposing of nearly two
million regular troops on a peace
footing and over ten million trained
soldiers in time of war."
Shall the time for collecting taxes
be extended? If extended, how
many who are unable to pay would
be benefited? In our judgment, the
peop'- who would reap the greatest
bendt are those who can pay their
taxes and won't, because there has al
ways been a custom 1n this State to
extend the time. The great argu
ment used by many who want an ex
tension, is that it will enable people
to arrange with those who give them
credit at the beginning of the new
year, but this cannot be depended
on, because the conditions are such
now that very few merchants will be
able to furnish cash for taxes; it will
be as much as they can do to furnish
meat and bread for the people to
make a crop, and in many instances
the supplies will be cut short. If the
'time for collecting taxes is to be ex
tended every year it would be far
better to set the time in January or
February and stop the extension

Your scribe had the pleasure of at
tending the Christmas tree and ex

last Friday evening and feels it a
duty to compliment this young lady
in no weak terms. Much proof was

were well trained in Christmas carols
and recitations of which they ac
quitted themselves admirably well.
The tree was laden with many hand

enjoy many such occasions.

I am a good old rebel.
And that's what just I am;
And for this land of freedom
I do not care a damn.
I'm very glad I fit them,
I only wish we'd won;
And I don't want any pardon
For anything I've done.
I hates the constitution,
And the glorious Union, too;
I bates the Freedman's bureau,
And the niggers dressed in blue.
I hate the American eagle
With its feathers and its fuss;
And them lying, cheating Yankees
I hates them wuss and wuss.
I followed old man Robert
For nigh four years or more,
And I caught the rheumatism
A camping in the snow.
They starved me at Point Lookout,
Of that I'm sartain, sure;
But I killed a heap of Yankees
And I wish I had killed more.
Three hundred thousand Yankees
Lie buried in our dust;
We killed three hundred thousand
'Afore they conquered us.
They died of Southern fevers
And Southern shell and shot;
I wish we'd killed a million,
'Twouldn't pay for what they got.
I've put away my musket,
For I ain't gwine to fight;
But I have it always ready,
Tho' I put it out of sight.
And I don't want any pardon;
For what I was, I am;
And I won't be reconstructed,
If I do, may I be d-.
