The Legislature will be in ses .sion in two weeks, and the two principle things before it will be the legislation to comply with the constitution recently sub mitted to the voters in a very botched manner, and the devis ing of a plan to breathe new life into the body of the dying dis pensary, and the enactment of the appropriation bills. When these things have been done, ad journment should be in order, but in our opinion the whole forty days will be taken up in pumping hot air at the rate of $1,000 per day, and very little will be accomplished. Nearly every politician elected to the legislature will strive for leadership, and in this rivalry a great many speeches will be made on every measure intro duced, and thus the time will be wasted with small results for the people who pay the piper. The man who introduces and fights with might and main a measure that will kill out this pernicious system of credit will do much towards relieving the farmers of what is fast becoming a labor stagnation. Make the mortgag ing of that which does not exist a nullity, and reduce the legal rate of interest, then will those upon whom the country must depend have a fair show in this mad race for existance. As it is, the agricultural interests are de pressed largely on account of a cheap credit extended to an ele ment which should be hewers of wood and drawers of water, with the result, that farmer and merchant are both injuried there by, but wipe out this lien law, then merit and property will form a basis of credit, and with -a cheaper rate of interest, farm ers can build up the waste places of this State. We realize the up-hill work -a legislator would \ have on his hands were he to undertake to reduce the present gouging rate *of interest. such a bill would have to run the gamut of the banks and other capitalists, many of which are well represented upon the floors of the Legisla ture by their paid attorneys, but - let him enter upon the work and with persistency push it, and the day will come when the people will be aroused to their interests, and drive from the temple the money-changers. It is high time in a State made up largely of farmers, that some legislation be done in their interests. The *appropriating of money for a farmers' college to turn out mechanics and professions is not satisfying to the farmers' needs, they want something to effect their material welfare nearer homei, and* the looking after something which will put labor in the fields, and make money cheaper will help vastly. .LIET IT COME, IT MAY BE BEST. The next congress which will convene on March 4th will have before it the matter of cutting donthe representation of the * outh in congress and also in the electoral college. So far as the South's representation in the electoral college is con cerned, it would not matter in the least were congress to cut it out entirely because the only effect of having representation in the electoral college is to show up a weak and measly minority miade up entirely of one section, dominated and controlled by a handful of swell-headed, over fed politicians whose political existence depends upon keeping the people in political servitude under a party lash wielded by ignorance. But when it comes to cutting down the representa tion in congress, then it becomes a serious matter, and one which the people are vitally interested mn. . The South. needs representa tion, good and strong, a repre sentation based upon a broad statesmanship. a statesmanship which has a breadth of mind suf ficient to scorn the narrow lim its of sectional lines, and that can grasp ideas which are for the country's good regardless of where they spring from. We should regret to lose our numerical strength in congress, but if we continue sending ob structionists to represent us we alone are to blame, should the majority come back at us and tell us. "if you insist upon try ing to block the wheels of prog ress then come with a represen tation that you are entitled to by the number of voters you per mit to exercise the franchise." The South is today represented in congress by a voting strength which includes every negro of the age of 21 years. yet the act ual voting strength is confined to white votes. With this con dition, it is no wonder- the Re publican party complains of un fairess nd wnts o pu th representation on the same basis as it is at the North. There is no possible way to keep the negro out of our poli tics, not even with the represen tation cut down. unless certain constitutional amendments are repealed, and this we have no hope for, but should our repre sentation be reduced we can our selves regulate our election laws so that a division among the whites on governmental ques tions need not bring the negro in as a factor, and in course of time two strong parties in the South may prove a blessing.

General Watts was a young man of very bright promise at one time, and had a host of friends all over the State. My wife was all run down, and I feared a long illness; but one bottle of King's Sarsaparilla made a new woman of her. It is a wonderful medicine. F. J. REDMAN. Seversville, N. C. Sold by Dr. W. E.

In the city of Darlington a pri mary election was held for muni cipal officers, and a large num ber of citizens did not favor' a primary and therefore withheld their participation in it, but when the time arrived for the formal election those refusing to participate in the primary put up a ticket in opposition to the primary nomination and won. We mention this incident merely to show the tendency to repudi ate our primary system, not be cause there is so much opposi tion to the primary, but it is to the manner in which it is con ducted,the disposition to throttle free speech, and the fraud and corruption which has entered into it. In our opinion, unless there is a change in the roles and the party machinery,the primary system in South Carolina is doomed. Politicians are in con trol of the machinery and it must be taken from them if we would prevent just such schisms as witnessed in Greenville county and the city of Darlington.

They have made their home at No. 224 North Hampton Ave. Pinewood, S. C. Mr. Henry Lowder and Miss Minnie Griffin were married on Wednesday evening at 5 p. mi. at the home of the bride's sister Mrs. A. G. Stack. Rev. L. L. Bedenbough performed the cere mony. A very pretty and picturesque wed ding took place in the First Methodist church Wednesday evening at 8 p. m. Dec. 21th. The principals were Miss Olga Reynolds and Mr. Patrick B. Lawrence. The church was attrac tivev decorated with smilax, ferns, ivy and ~potted plants which added con siderably to the artistic arrangement of the whole. At 8 o'clock Lohengrin's wedding march was beautifully and efficiently rendered by Mrs. P. M. Sal ley, and the bridal party entered with slow and measured steps in the follow ing order: Mr. H. A. Brailsford down left aisle, Mr. Miller Lide down right aisle, then came the bride leaning on the arm of Miss Lillian Lawrence who was met at the alter by the groom, the best man Mr. Walter V. Felder and the officiat ing minister, Rev. Bedenbaugh. The bride was a dream of lovliness in her gown of white silk, a shower of bride's 'oses resting on her arm. The maid of honor was dainty and sweet, attired in white, carrying bou quets of white and pink carnations. After the ceremony the bridal parrty assembled in the hospitable home of the groom's parents'Mr. and Mrs. R. A. Lawrence where light refreshments wer served. The party was enter tained for a while by a number of the latest games which occasioned much laughter and which were heartily en joyed by all present. The popularity of the couple w~as shown by the numerous costly presents which were artistically displayed in the hall. Rev. Bedenbaugh has been returned here by the conference.

Maynard Marshall conducted the services. Mr. and Mrs. Nap L. Broughton left on the 22nd, for Camden, Ark., to spend the holidays. BUSTER. Summerton News. Editor The Manning Times: We are proud to state that since we have known the town of Sum merton we have never seen as many people here as were here last Satur d;iy and as little "booze" ou hand. Every store did all they could do with the force they had. On- last Thursday night about 8 o'clock the alarm of fire was sounded and it was soon seen that the house belonging to Mrs. E. A. Tindal on the edge of town was on fire. All the stores closed and in afew min utes a large crowd of people were taking the furniture of Mr. Gilmore, who was living in the house, out. Everything was saved that was in the kitchen, but there was consider able damage done to the furniture moving it out of the house. This was a total loss, as there was no in surance on the building or furniture. On last Wednesday about 4 o'clock in the afternoon a negro named Richard Smith, filled with "fuss X," got a double-barreled breech-loader, put shells in each barrel and made for the depot, where a large crowd of people, both colored and white, was waiting for the train. He was cursing and swore he was going to kill some one whom he said had stole some whiskey from him. When he reached the top step of the depot platform Warden H. A. Tisdale caught hold of the gun and asked that he give it up, whereupon he showed fight. Mr. Tisdale hit him in the face and other negroes came up and ;ook the etin and attempted to carry it away, but the venerable A. J. Richbourg arrived on the ground and arrested Smith. The council met at once and fined Smith twenty dollars, which was paid at once. Judge Richbourg then hand cuffed him and informed him that he would have to go to jail or give bond for appearance in the next court for assault with intent to kill. He suc ceeded in giving bond about 8 o'clock that night. We understand that Captain James has withdrawn his offer for the Pres byterian church property. This is some fine property for one that has the money to invest. Many of the students from various colleges are home for the holidays. Mr. E. P. Briggs has opened up a market and fancy grocery and has employed Mr. H. H. Windham as manager. H. Summerton, S. C., Dec. 26, 1904. No More Suffering If you are troubled with indigestion get a bottle of Kodor Dyspepsia Cure and see how quickly it will cure you. Geo. A. Thomson, of Spencer, la., says: "Have had Dyspepsia for twenty years. My case was almost hopeless. Kodol Dyspepsia Cure was recommended and I used a few bottles of it and it is the only thing that has relieved me. Would not be without it. Have doctored with local physicians and also at Chica.go, and even went to Norway with hopes of getting some relief, Kodol Dyspep sia Cure is the only remedy that has done me any good, and-I heartily recom mend it. Every person suffering with indigestion or dyspepsia should use it." Sold by The R. B. Loryea Drug Store. TEMPERANCE COLUMNS onducted by PaxvMe W. 0. T. U. National Motto--"For God.

FRANCES E. WIL.LARD. God calls some chosen souls apart, For work among their fellowmen, With lofty purpose fires the heart, Illumes the mind, or guides the pen. Far up the shining heights they tread, But reach strong hands to those Below: To guide them where their feet have Led, Above the plains of sin and woe. But how shall woman, weak and frail, With cares without and fea~rs within, Lift up a hand that shall prevail Against the mighty hosts of sin? Out from their ranks came one inspired To lead them on, a-glorious band To work with heaven-ly zeal untired, "For God and home and every land." The strength of love and faith is theirs, Responding to her rallying cry, They give their labors and their Prayers, To save from sin-Humanity. Leader of womankind to thee The eyes of anl thy comrades turn: Thy hope, thy love, thy charity, Within their hearts shall live and Burn. Thy life shall ever lift their lives 'To labor for the true and good, The years shall see thy name survive, Queen of exalted womanhood. -Anna R. Henderson. When shall we win? Why, when we fire Straight to the mark, and never tire; When we hold fast, as we've begun, And still work on, till all is done. When shall we win? When, filled with Zeal, We face the foe of comimon weal,. And fiinging to the wind each fear, God's trumpet can alone we hear' When shall we win? When we're Content To die, nor retreat content, Resolved to shun the recreant's shame; And rather choose a martyr's name. When shall we win? 'Tis best to say What can we do from day to day? With truth, and faith in truth, we dare Nor faint, or falter, or despair. The cause of Right is charged to win Omnipotence is not with sin Since God is King, His cause will see The light and crown of victory Be this our cause; that we endure; 'Tis this will keep our conscience pure, And when the righteous cause has won, We. too, shall hear the words. "Well Done." POINTED ARROWS. Drink is the highway to degradation. Drink spares none and makes no nice discriminations. The rich and poor, learned, unlearned, simple, priest, prophet, judge, auler, all are its victims. With some the issue is swifter. with others slower, but all it is the same-mental, moral, physical indifference and enduration, and the end death. Total abstinence is the one sure safeguard against drunken ness. There is no legitimate delight sacrificed, and there is illimitable good assured. There is better health of body and mind: there is a better condition of individual and social morals; there is immense saving in per sonal civic expense; there is the comfort of greater security and Foreston News.

Christmas. which has been looked forward to with so much pleasure, has come at last and at this writing, can scarcely be said to be past. The weath er is unusually warm for the season, and though partially cloudy, has not yet rained, and we hope may not for a while, as it would interfere with much anticipated pleasure.
