Hon. 1. B. Scarboro of Horry
President protei of the Senate has
taken the oath of office as Lieutenant
Governor. He will preside over the
Senate, and a good officer he will
make. A. sucnsful career to him.
The Darlingtonian of Darlington
has a new editor in the person of Mr.
Louis J. Bristow, formerly of the
Kingstree Becord. Mr. Bristow
writes well and by the way he im
proved the Record, Darlington can
feel assured they have a man who
will give them a good, live newspa
per, and that he will keep them post
ed on everything that is going on.
Hon. James Norton is determined
that Lake City shail have postal facil
ities or give the postoffice authorities
at Washington no rest. Through hi:s
efforts the government sent a special
inspector down to Lake City last
week and Mr. Norton accompanied
him. The officer made an investiga
tion and upon his report will depend
whether or not Lake City will be per
mitted to get into postal communi
cation with the outside world. If he
fails this time, we know Mr. Norton
well enough to know that the gov
erunent will have some one to give
them trouble until he succeeds. Con
gressman Norton feels that Lake
City is being wrongfully punished,
and that innocent ores are being
punished for the crime of others.
In looking over the recent acts of
the General Assembly, we fail to find
the act passed providing a salary for
county auditors. This is a piece of
carelessness, and somebody is respon
sible for it. We know it to be a fact
that an act was passed regulating the
salaries of all the county Auditors in
the State, and the salaries were equal
ized according to amount of taxable
property, thus reducing the salaries
in a large number of the counties.
This law does not appear in the pub
lished acts sent out by the Secretary
of State, and which book is regarded
the "official" book of State laws made
by the General Assembly of 1899.
Who is responsible for this neglect,
the State printer or Coditier Bre
Governor McSweeney in reducing
the constabulary force, by which the
State will be the gainer to the extent
of $20,000, has done a wise thing and
exhibited his good business judg
ment. The chief executive deserves
the co-operattion of the municipal au
thorities for the enforcement of the
dispensary law, and he believes that
much of the opposition can be avoid
ed by placingsmore confidence in the
local officers. Take Charleston, for
instance; everybody knows that the
enforcement of the dispensary law in
that city by the constabulary is noth
ing short of a silly farce--even wvorse
-many of the bliud tigers are work
ing under the protection of consta
bles paid by the State, and the con
stables are actual obstructions in the
way of enforcing the law by the po
lice authorities. Major Boyle, chief
of police, has earnestly endeavored to
execute and enforce the dispensary
law; his records show the seizures,
but whenever he attempted to co
operate with the State constables, his
raids were failures, with every indi
cation that the proprietor had re
ceived warning of his coming. It is
openly charged in Charleston that
the blind tiger people have the State
constables in their pay. Now that
the Governor has reduced the force,
it will be seen whether or not the
municipal authorit les will be more
active than thev were before. We
believe they' will be, because there
will not be any excuse on the ground
that the State has special offieers in
their municipalities for that special
work. We assume that in reducing
the force the Governor ineans to scat
ter- the constables in the country
where the peop~le who are without po
lice protection, can have officers to
break up the illicit wvhiskey dens
which are becoming very numerous

Elitor Ta- Tniws:
I am perhaps venturing a good
deal in sending you another letter
already, as I do not know whether
my last one was worth enough to be
printed, but concluded to-night that
as I needed something to occupy my
mind I would scribble a little for you.
The town that this ie written from is
quite a nice place. It is the county
seat of Laurens county, and is situat
ed on the Oconee river. According
to the last Census Dublin had eigh
teen hundred people, but now the
population numbers about four thou
It is on the Wrightsville and Ten
nille and Macon and Dublin railroads,
about a 110 miles southwest of Au
gusta. The town has a spendid coun
try all around to back it, and the
growth is permanent. On account of
good railroad facilities and also a
line of boats all the way to Savannah,
they have splendid freight rates, and
the'place can boast of several whole
sale houses, in addition to electric
lights, an immense water stand-pipe,
some hundred and fifty feet high, and
other improvements.- I understand
that fifty thousand dollars is subscrib
ed for a cotton factory which is to be
built right away. In fact the people
all over this "wire grass" country are
wide awake and up-to date.
Right through here the timber in
terests amount to a good deal as yet,
and there is much farming too, but
lower down towards the Florida line
there is little less than saw mills and
turpentine stills as money producers.
Turpentine and lumber are both
bringing good prices now. Spirits
turpentine has gone from twenty-four
to thirty eight and forty cents per
gallon, with rosin also strong, and
the mills cannot cut the orders for
lumber. For a man with a little
money there are five to ten years of
big money making in either turpen
tine or lumber in Georgia and South
Alabama, but the unfortunate part
with most of us is t bat we would like
to do and can't for the want of enough
to start with.
As I said before, South Georgia is
full of mills and stills, and I will also
add alligator and grass-widows. The
days of the mills and stills and alliga
:ors are limited, but under the pres
nt system of laws in this State bear
ing upon the matrimonial question
the grass widows and widowers are
ealculated to flourish until their name
shall be legion. I attended a swell
wedding in a church in a certain
co'.jty-seat one night about ten days
ago. It was a large church but was
too crowded for me to get in, so I
remained outside at the door and had
a good look at the bride and groom
and train of attendants as they paus
ed for several minutes to arrange to
marcb in. You ought to have heard
them inquiring who had the "license,"
if it was in the preachers hands etc.
The preacher is supposed to hold the
i license in his hands when he ties up
a couple over here. It wvas all very
amusing and I may almost say ridicu
lous to me.
You know wvherever they issue
licenses to marry they generally have
a dog license too, and sometimes
both the dog license ofiice and the
marriage license office are in the same
building. It also sometimes happens
that where a man iage is to take place
and the groom does not arrive in
time to take out the license that the
young lady applies for it so as to have
it ready. Then imagine the amuse
ment of the officer, and the predica
nment of a blushing prospective bride
who goes to apply for a marriage li
cense and goes to the wrong oic,an
when she finally takes a handkerchief
from her biushing face and ventures
to tell the officer what she came for,
she is informed that that is not the
the place, and that she is in the dog
license office. I am a typical South
Carolinian on the marriage question
and I always did think that marriage
was too solemn and too high a thing
to be put along with tobacco and
whiskey and dogs.
Divorces are also common overhere
and divorce cases take up a good por
tion of the county courts. I under
stand that a license only costs one
dollar and eighty cents, one dollar
and a half for the license itself, and I
guess thirty cents for recording. So)
sometimes I think I'll just take out
one and carry it along in my grip
sack, in case I should strike a streak
of luck over here, but you bet your
sweet life here is one "bach" who
would step back across the Savannah
river to have the thing (lone up right.
I would hate to feel that I was all fi
ed up for "weal or for wvoe," "for bet
ter or for worse," "until death you
two shall part" etc., and then to know
that at the first county court that
came along I might lose my dollar
and eighty cents and then be turned
loose, and have all that big job to do
over again. When that preacher
married that couple the other night
and told them that they were married
until "death you two shall part," etc.
I think he said it wrong. He ought
to have closed it up by saying "ac
cording to the Statutes in such case
made and provided." A certain
young man from the town of L- was
to have been married to a young lady
in T--- about ten days ago. The
marriage was to have taken place on
Wednesday night, but when he got
there he only arrived in time to learn
that she had changed her notion on
the Sunday night before and married
another sweet heart. And all good
folks too. Now his dollar and eighty
cents is gone, unless he can sell the
license, and they tell me that they
are not transferable.
IBut Georgia, notwithstanding all
this, is a good State. She is Demo
cratic to the core, and the white man
is certainly on top in this State, ar he
is in South Carolina. If the Get-rgia
people will go to work now a'nd fix
their constitution like we had to do,
and like Mississippi did, and then
take a few lessons fromn South Caroli
na on the mrrriage question, she will
be in deed as she is in name the em-'
pire State of the South. South Car
olina occupies a unique position on
that marriage question, and is per
haps the only State in the Union
where people cannot get a divorce.
The consequence is that in no State
is the marital vow held in higher re
gard than in ours, and shame upon,
her whenever she issues a marriage
license or any other kind of paper
which is calculated to weaken the
high and crystalized sentiment on the
that pretty fast. The city of Atlanta
has recently passed a law forbidding
people chewing tobacco and spitting
on the sidewalks, under a penalty of
being arrested and fined, and that's
pretty good for a starter, don't you
think? Atlanta will advertise her
self, and she is willing to have yellow
fever, just to keep her name in the
papers. H. L.

Washington Letter.
(Frow ocr Regnlar Correspondent
Washington, June 16. Having
sanctioned a policy for the sending of
soldiers to the Philippines that is a
clear case of what used to be called
"whipping the devil around the
stump," Mr. McKinley has gone off
on a ten day pleasure trip, with the
very important object of seeing his
niece graduate from Massachusetts
female college. Meanwhile private
advices from Manila say that instead
of ending the war General Otis is
likely to find himself and his army
confined to Manila and its cutskirts,
before the rainy season is over, unless
he is heavily reinforced. Mr. Mckin
ley fears the political effect of issuing
the call for volunteers, although he
has several times decided to do so,
and adopted the plan of sending a
sufficient number of regulars to Otis
to give him a total of 35,000 men.
This is to be done in a way to ban
boozle the public. Portions of regi
ments are to be sent and portions re
tained in barracks. And to the latter
all the men enlisted at the recruiting
offices are to be sent to be broke in,
and nobody outside of the War De
partment will be able to know wheth
er the regular army is over-enlisted
or not. as early as last week every
U. S. recruiting office was ordered to
bustle and to keep it up until fuither
The boldest witness who has testi
fied since the Industrial Commission
began the investigation of trusts was
Henry 0. Havemeyer, the president
of the sugar trust, who was heard
this week. After reading a carefully
prepared essay, in which he claimed
that trusts, and especially the sugar
trust, were public benefactors, he said:
"We are not in the business for phil
anthropic purposes. It is policy,
sometimes, to divide our profits with
the public, and we conduct our busi
ness on business li:.:es. We have tried
to sell so low as to shut out all com
petition, but up to the present time
we are in it up to our neck. Trusts
are a natural growth. They are reg
ulated by the laws of trade, and neith
er you, nor the Federal government,
nor any other power, can alter these
laws, and the sooner you fiud it out
and cease these useless investig.ations,
the better for the country." Now
that is a fine picture, isn't it? The head
of one of the most notorious of the
trusts which are driving individual
enterprise to the wall and slowly but
surely getting possession of the whole
country, standing up and boldly tell
ing the representatives of the U. S.
Government that they are engaged in
a use less investigation of trusts, and
that neither the Federal government,
nor any other power, is strong enough
to stop the growth of trusts. Mr.
Havemeyer was mistaken. There is
a power strong enough t-> stop the
growth of the trusts, and sooner or
later it will do it. That power is
weilded by the people, who pay the
enormous profits of the trusts.
Representative Sherman's friends
try hard to conceal their soreness over
the Henderson bunco that he ran up
against, but they do not succeed very
well. For instance, read the follow
ing remarks made by ex-representa
tive Southwick, of New York, and it
is easy to see that he does not believe
Shermian was given a square deal: "Mr.
Sherman accepts his defeat for the
Spakership with the utmost philoso
phy, and isn't in the least sore over
Henderson's record-breaking victory.
He never knew in advance of others
that Mr. Reed contemplated retiring
from the House, and his declination
of the Customs appraisership was not
made prior to his knowledge of Mr.
Red's intentions." That sounds very
much like pleading the baby act, as
it was generally believed that Mr.
Sherman did know in advance, and
that he was Mr. Reed's choice for the
Speakership. In fact, it was Mr.
Sherman's declination of an office
that he had sought which gave the
public the first intimation of Mr.
Reed's intention to retire. Again,
Mr. Southwick indicated his belief in
bunco practices by the Henderson
men when he said: "When the Illi
oids people put up Hopkins instead
of Cannon, we would have had a large
following outside his own State, they
picked a fore-doomed non-winner.
Had Joe Cannon been their candidate
the result would never have been set
ted in advance of the meeting of
Cogress." WVhen the Committee
chairmanships are announced the
Sherman men will understand still
better how they were knocked out.
Ex-Governor Bookwalter, of Ohio,
who has lately returned from a three
year's trip through Russia and its
dependencies, has some new ideas of
the Czar's country. He said: "I en
joyed the trip to Russia thoroughly,
and arrived at the conclusion that
Russia is a wofully misjudged coun
try. Nowhere have I seen a more
pronounced tendency on the part of
a government to promote the interests
of its poor people. 1 think the pre
vailing delusion in America concern
ing the alleged tyranny of the Rus
sian government arises from the fact
that it will not tolerate crime. Jus
tice there is swift and severe, but are
we in a position to say that it is too
swift andi severe?" Mr. Bookwalter
says that Russia is bound to be the
dominant power in Asia and that if
this administration carries out a hank
ering it has, unless he reads the signs
wrong, to get into the Asiatic mix-up,
the people of the U. S. wil deeply
regret it.

E.litor THE TiEs:
The cool wave has reached our lit
tle town, and one may plow, hoe,
write or do most anything else and
keep comparatively cool.
We have had a good rain, which
was needed-not so much in our im
mediate section as in some of those
near around us.
Crops generally are looking well.
Some farmers were late planting
and have not good stands of cotton
and tobacco. Tobacco was begin
ning to need rain, though early
plantings are in a growing condition
and look well; the late plantings are
slow to grow on account of the dry
weather. Where cotton was planted
early enough to get up before the
drought set in it is in good condition,
growing and large enough for this
time of year. The cotton crop has
not suffered for want of rain. I think
the acreage has been reduced this
year 23 to 30 per cent. and perhaps
more. Corn is good, generally; in
low lands where corn grew last year
worms have been bad and stands are
not good. I believe there is more rice
planted here this year than formerly.
It is too dry for rice, but with good
seasons from now on a good yield
may be expected.
Nearly all farmers plant cane that
they may make their own syrup.
This crop is doing fairly well. Farm
ers are realizing that it does not pay
to raise cotton exclusive of crops for
home consumption.
I am informed that Messrs. Thomas
& Bradham, who have cattle in the
"big pasture," lost four head by fam
ishing for water or from drinking bad
water. They have since extended
the piping from the flowing well to
the pasture. Stock should be well
looked after, in dry times, especially.
Mr. C. M. Mason visited Kingstree
last week, I am told, to assist In get
ting the "Elephant" through on his
second degree in the Knights of Pyth
ias. The Knights have assumed
large proportions.
On Friday, June 9th, our weather
prophet (Boswell) predicted rain for
the next day. At 17 minutes past 5
o'clock rain came; at 11 minutes past
5-6 minutes--off. By some more
practice and study he expects to get
it down to the minute. W.

Commencement Exercises of the Pres
byterian College or South Carolina.
The exercise was opened June 4th
with the baccalaureate by the Rev.
J. L. Williamson of Newberry, S. C.
His text was "Our Father 'which art
in heaven." Matt. 6:9. He brings
out very clearly our conception of
God, and discussed the formation of
a true and beautiful character. The
sermon was a splendid presentation
of truth, free from mechanical orato
rical flights, rich and abounding with
clear and original thought, a sermon
worthy of the brilliant, brainy
preacher. Mr. Williamson evidently
thinks for himself. His exposition
and development of his theme was
strikingly attractive and impressive
ly strong.
Sunday evening at 8:30 the services
were conducted by the Y. M. C. A.
Monday evening at 8:30 was the de
bators' contest for a medal. The
query 'was, "Resolved that territorial
expansion Is a disadvantage to the
United States." Affirmative-W. W.
Chamblee and WV. B. Doyle. Nega
sive-T.C. Simpson and S. L. Thomp
ton. It is said by some to be the
best debate ever delivered in the hall
at Clinton and by others to be the
best they ever heard from college
boys. After the contest was over the
faculty came on the stage and con
gratulated the debators for their suc
cess in the way they discussed and
delivered the debate. It was shown
by the attention of the audience that
it was good indeed, and, very much
appreciated by them.
Tuesday evening at 8:30 the hall
was crowded to hear the honorary
orator, Rev. S. C. Byrd of Colum
bia, S. C., and the declaimers, six in
number. Rev. Byrd spoke for one
hour . and ten minutes on "The
White Man's Burden in the State."
Mr. Byrd was very enthusiastic on
his subject and he penetrated the
hearts of the audience as if he had
sent a two-edged sword winging its
flight through the crowd.
Then followed the six declaimers in
a contest for a medal. The declaim
ers were L. W. Brown, J. W. Car
p enter, C. M. Fulton, G. W. Wilkins,
SB. Wright and L W. Matthews.
All the young men acquitted them
selves well and did great credit
to their trainers. Mr. 3. W. Carpen
ter, surpassing the other five in ora
tory, was awarded the medal as the
best declaimer.
Wednesday morning at 10:30 the
exercises were brought to a close by
an address from Hon. Julius C. Boggs
and the exercises of the graduating
class. Mr. Boggs made a fine speech
on the "American Home; How to
Make it Attractive for Those at
Home." It was filled with the gem
of thought and the genius of oratory.
Essays were then read by each of the
graduating class and diplomas were
then given.
Thus ended the happy college year
of the Presbyterian College.
College opens September 27, 1899.
The college, appreciating the fact
that there are so many young men
desiring an education, but are un
able to obtain it at present rates,
have decided to reduce expenses to a
minimum. The rates have been re
duced from $1453 to $100 total ex
penses. Those wishing to avail them
selves of this opportunity should
make application at an early date.
Write for catalogue or further in
formation to W. T. Matthews or A.
E. Spencer, Clinton, S. C.
Now just one word from a friend to
boys and young men. This is the
opportunity of a first class education
at the lowest possible rate. Just
think of it, one hundred dollars will
send you to college one year. Young
men, don't let this opportunity pass,
but enlist at once.

Tobacco Growers, Take Notice!
We still have plenty of Sheet Steel on hand and can fill orders for Flues
at our usual low prices. People who are in a position to know, say that
our Sets for 16-foot barns at $9.50, $10.50, $11.50 and $12.50 are the best
made and fitted Flues they have ever seen sold at those prices, the joints
being all locked and riveted, ends crimped and braded; each part fits per
fectly; no sparks can escape, and a perfect draft can be maintained, which
will insure a uniform heat, that is so essential to the perfect curing of the
tobacco leaf.
We also have Paris Green and the very best devices for applying same
to tobacco plants.
Farmers, we have a few Orangeburg Sweeps, which we offer at our
usual low price: 10-inch Sweeps, 25e; 12-inch, at 30c; 14-inch, at 30c: 10-inch,
at 35c; 18-inch, 35c; 20-inch, at 40c, or two for 75c.
Cotton Hoes at 25, 30 and 35c.
