Entered at the ce at Manning as Sec ond Class matter. CHARLESTON MUST WIN. There is nothing like being forced into the condition of "have to." This fact was never better demonstrated than it is in the case of Charleston receiving the con gressional knock-out drops. The refusal of national aid has arous ed the pride of Charleston, and the people of that city are going to work from now on to prove to the world that the Inter-State and West Indian Exposition shall be a success with a big"S." While the appropriation measure was pending there was a feeling that the government would aid and, the consequence was, that many people in the city who should have aided, were indiffer ent,but now the thing is changed. Congress has slapped Charleston in the face, matters not why, she got the slap, and it has aroused the patriotism of the "Bottery" and other parts of the city where money is as plentiful as are the palmetto trees on the "Isle of Palms." Charleston has her peculiarities, she is noted for having lots of money rusting in the bank vaults, but when it comes to a matter that affects the pride of that city, those who have this mass of wealth lying idle, come to the front with their golden offerings, and cost what it will, the pride of their beloved city shall not be humiliated in the eyes of the world. This is the condition of expo sition affairs which has been brought on by the failure to get an appropriation from Congress. A failure that is regarded a mis erable discrimination against the South, which refused a modest sum when a tremendous amount was given to St. Louis. When Congress defeated the amendment giving to Charleston $250,000, it made us feel keenly1 the disappointment, and we were prone to attribute it to blunder ing somewhere; we felt that our daily papers had something to do with prejudicing our case be fore Congress, but on reflection, we have come to the conclusionI that we were wrong and no par tieular source is to blame for our failure. Charleston was the victim of circumstances and not hate, nor was she the victim of indifference; she was put on as a tail to the St. Louis kite and Senator Vest fearing that it would affect his pet measure, used his senatorial scissors~ to cut this tail. It was like a drown ing man, drowning his comrade to save himself, but it is all for the best, and without congres sional help the exposition will excel Atlanta and Nashville and will shove- the Pan-American close. The people throughout the State have taken more interest since Congress adjourned. and from the evidences that are daily manifested, the State's building* will not be able to hold all of the exhibits that are going to be sent from the interior. Some of the manufacturing counties will erect their own buildings, and Clemson, Winthrop, and South Carolina Colleges, and the Cita del will each have places in the picture. The tobacco counties will make the finest show of the yellow product ever seen at any exposition heretofore held, and which we look forward to, as be ing a v-ery important factor to wards inducing people from abroad to make this State their home. We have felt more en couraged since Congress refused to give us the appropriation than we did before, because there was a great deal of "prefunctory duty" about the affair and every thing depended on the various commissions and committees, but now, the action of Congress has fanned into flame the pride and1 patriotism of the people of Char leston, and their deter mination to succeed has struck a respon sive chord throughout the State to such an extent, that we have come to ask ourself what is $250-, 000 in gold from the National: treasury, compared with the hearts of the people of the State beating in loving unison for tha welfare of Charleston that has not been treated fair, and the State of South Carolina whose LET US WAIT AND SEE! c In yesterday's Columbia State a appeared an article from the pen B of Jos. Ohl, correspondent of the - Atlanta Constitution, in which it I is alleged that in reply to the i question of Senator Jones, Sena- s tor McLaurion "asked that his t name be stricken from the cau- e cus rolls, and that 'he did not c care to go into Democratic cau- E cuses in the future." Taking t the assertion of the correspon- I dent as a basis,the State in a long I editorial calls for McLaurin's resig tion. The newspaper correspondents b who differ with the views of pub lic men are frequently making quotations that are unwarranted, and we are inclined to that opin ion in this case. We are aware of the fact that Senato- McLau rin has seen fit to differ with a majority of his party associates on certain questions, and that his independent nature does not take kindly to permitting party leaders placing shackles upon his ideas, but we have no idea that he proposes to renounce his fealty to the Democratic party. If Senator McLaurin does not wish to be tied hand and foot by Senator Jones who as the Dem ocracy's leadei- has proven him self a disastrous failure, we do not think that sufficient rea- t soning to prove that he has sev ered his affiiation with the Dem ocratic party. At present the Senator is de tained in Washington on account of extreme illness in his family, and when he returns to South Carolina we hope he will give out an authoritative statement with regard to this matter; until then. we will believe that the assertion of the Consti tution's correspondent, so rav- 1 enously taken hold of by the Co lumbia State, is a fabrication, just as we believed, coming from the same source, the intimation that Senator Tillman sold his si lence on the Cuban and Philip pine questions. The State did its best to prove a that Tillman was either buncoed or that his silence was bought, but it failed to convince anybody but itself after Tillman with his usual bluntness said "it was a lie." These damaging state ments, coming as they do from 1 political'opponents should not be given much credence, it is far safer to wait until Senator Mc Laurin gets home and obtain his1 side of the matter. ABUSE DOES NOT TEACH ! We can differ with men on a public question or a policy with out thinking those with whom we differ knaves or fools. The discussion of a question conduct ed under the rules of decency is ; calculated to enlighten, but when i a man beclouds the pending t question, with epethets, he not i only fails to enlighten, but t proves himself to be totally ig- e norant of the question, and un- I worthy an intelligent man's at tention. We may not agree with a position- taken, but we possess 1 that spirit of fairness, to be wil ling for both sides to be heard. In the matter of Senator McLau-3 in's views on certain national questions, we confess that we do not know whether we agree with him absolutely or not, but when we see clearly the systematic at tempt to misrepresent him, by withholding from the people Mc Lauin's reasons, we think it t right that he should be treated fair. If the people of South Carolina, after being put in pos session of the true facts, disap prove of McLaurin's views, it is up to them then, whether or not he should continue in their ser vice, but fairness demands that they have the true facts. It is easy enough for a man to ch~rge a public servant withi being disloyal to the Democratic party, but when it comes time for the man charged to answer, it is for the people to say whether or not the charge has been made good. We will venture the as sertion that there are men charg ing McLaurin with "Republican proclivities" who would no know a '-Republican proclivity" if they met it in the road: they say it because some one else has said it. but pin them down to reason out the point, and it will be found that they know no more about political economy, than a pratting infant. To be in a position to discuss such questions, one must be a student of political economics, and not a STATE OF OHio. CITY OF~ TOLEDO,. LUCAS C0UN-ry. FRANK J.

Loryea Drug Store, Isaac M. Loryea, Prop. The failure to secure the nat ional appropriation for the Inter State and West Indian Exposi tion to be held in Charleston the coming winter, has had the effect of stirring up the people of the city and many in the State to a degree of activity which makes it the more encouraging that the exposition will be a grand suc cess. The disappointment under the circumstances will enlist the sympathies of many men in other States who will come to Char leston's rescue, because of the unfair treatment discrimination against Charleston. Congress gave to St. Louis $5,000,000 and refused Charleston $250,000, the discrimination was too apparent, and this action of Congress is meeting with disapproval all over the North, East and West. In our opinion the refusal to give to Charleston the compara tively small donation asked for, will have the effect of a first class advertisement for the ex position, expecially will this be so, when the world sees that it has not caused a moments halt in the operations.

The innocent practice of No taries Public, certifying or pro bating papers without having the witnesses actually appearing before them is dangerous not only to the officer, but to the parties interested in the papers. Governor McSweeney has re cently revoked the commission of Seth M. Lee of Spartanburg county for just such a practice and the grand jury of Spartan burg has brought in a true bill against Lee on the charge of forgery. Lee, the notary pub lic, it is claimed signed a probate to a deed when he had never seen the witness and also certi fed the renunciation of dower when he had never seen the wife in the case. The consequence is that his commission is revoked and he may be severely punish ed, when the man may have not intended to commit any crime; the probability is, the paper was presented to him with the signa tures already affixed, and as a matter of accommodation, with out having any other motive than to be obliging, placed his official signature to the papers. We call attention to this case as a warning to magistrates, nota ries and other officers qualified to administer oaths, that they may know the danger of being obliging in such matters.
