What promised to be a serious proposition has been averted by the railroad authorities not con tending for their rights, and complying with the demands of Governor Glenn. The matter of federal ownership of railroads when first mooted by the Popu list party and championed by W. J. Bryan and others, gave the people but little concern, but if many States follow the suit of North Carolina, the railroads will plead with the government to come to their relief by buying the property rather than by leg islation confiscate it. Federal control of railroads to some might be -popular, but to us, we see in it a menace to our present conditions in the South. Let the government own and operate the railroads, and the party in power will have an army of appointees to keep it entrench ed. Then will the people cry out sure enough that the rail roads govern the land, and with government ownership separa tion of the races will be a thing of the past. all men of whatever race or condition will have the same accommodations, the same now the case where legisla tion 1 ot separated the races in travel. We fear ve 5, much that irrat ional legislatifon, aId political demagogy will cripple sur trans portation facilities to the'txtent that the railroads will be usable to give a good service, and th'e will only welcome the govern ment relieving them from dis aster if the fight against the railroads, to build political pres tige continues. There was no necessity for drastic measures in North Carolina, as the coupon arrangement was a fair proposi tion on the part of the roads to save themselves from loss pend ing judicial settlement of the issue. The action of North Car olina smacks of the highwayman, it is very much like a testator conscious of perpetrating an in justice in his will, makes a pro vision if any of the parties to the will attempt to contest, they shall be deprived of any share in the estate- Governor Glenn threatened, if the railroads fail-! ed to put the new rate in opera tion, and persisted in seeking their rights in the courts, he would call an extra session of the General Assembly and re peal their charters. This had the effect of making the roads throw up their hands and sub mit to the demands- The mat ter goes on to the courts, how - ever, but should the railroads win out, the money they will have lost in the rate difference is a dead loss to them, as there is no one responsible, the State cannot be made to reimburse The railroads ha~ve no souls to save, nor carcasses to kick: not a very inviting prospect to in vestors for future development. ANARCHY PREVAILED. The acquittal of Haywood, the labor leaaner at Boise, Idaho, is nothing less than we expected, not that there was lacking the evidence of guilt, but the senti ment created by a tremendous organization made it an impos sibility to secure a convction. The law is powerless where pub lic sentiment asserts itself against it. In the State of North~ Carolina recently there was a demonstration of public senti ment overriding law, by the ac quittal of the men tried for lynch ing. and turned loose in the face of positive evidence of the sheriff and his daughter identifying the parties charged.- In case just concluded in Idaho the power of labor unions was manifest, all over the country union men were in sympathy with Haywood, Moyer, and Pettibone, the men accused of being connected with the assassination of Governor Steunenberg, they championed their cause, not from the evi dence-they read during the long trial, but before the trial began they were making all manner of demonstrations to attest their innocence. The power of this organization is so great that public officers are intimidated into fear to perform their duty. One of the attorneys for the de fense in his speech openly defied constituted legal authority- He scoffed at law and vehemently sounded the doctrine of anarchy. This man's home is in Chicago where the followers of the red flag are concentrated, and it was to this element he was preach ing all through his argument. In our judgment. the speech of Richaids~n, of Chicago, will. encourage murder and arson, and that be and those believing like him are a curse to this land. We are not opposed to organi zed labor as such, and as long as labor organized retains respect for law and order, but when any organization enters into a con spir-acy to assassinate and de undesErving of sympathy. Cap ital -requently oppresses labor' we believe. but when that is the case let the redreszs or remedy be sought in.a civilized and legal manner, and not by hurling bombs, wielding daggers, and applying the torch, as seems to have been the methods of these Western miners. A NEW RAILROAD. A proposition f r o mn H o n. Walter Hazard of Georgetown has been made to build a rail road from Georgetown through Williamsburg to touch either Kingstree or Cades on the A. C. L. the-nce to Motts Bridge on Lynches River to Timmonsville, Hartsville, tapping the Seaboard Air Line between Cheraw and Camden, making a road of about 100 miles. The idea is a good one and we have no doubt'it will, as it should, appeal to railroad promoters. The suggested road would open up a great section of farming and timber lands now ly ing undeveloped, and if such a road could be built it would easily be made to unbottle this section. It would take but a small amount of money to connect the Alcolu railroad with a road crossing Lynches River at Motts Bridge, as the Alcolu road is now within a few miles from that point, then bring on the Alcolu road to tra verse this section on through the Panola and St. Paul section to the Santee River, the develop ment of the county would be mar velous. We heartily agree with Mr. Hazard's suggestion. The country needs more transpor tation facilities and more com petition. The past few years there has been much complaint about tardiness in the handling of freight all over the country, and we think 1. J. Hill the great railrord magnate struck the truth when he said "The railroads of today cannot do any better,they cannot prevent congestion of freights, because the country has outgrown the roads, and what is needed,is moreiroads to-move the trattic. "ThelO0 miles of road from Georgetown to connect with a competing line would greatly help the country, and if the present roads are making money there is every reason to believe the suggested road would be a mint. It is to be hoped Mr. Ha zarc's suggestion will make cap italists sit up and take notice, but if 'tjey will not,we hope the movene-t will be started in Georgetown any way, for the greater dexelopment of South Carolina's greateSt inland seg port. Beginning January 1st, 1908, "Jaw-Jaw" will have State pro hibition, with the right of drug stores to sell liquor on prescrip tion. There will be a great in flux of doctors and druggists into our sister State. Liquor sold only on a doctor's prescrip tion. What a farce? The Orangeburg Times and Democrat, usually as serene as a morning in May, camne out last week with its editorial col umns printed in tobasco sauce. Why,'Brother Sims, we are amazed that you should let your angry passions rise, and slip your chance for mansions in the skies. Take the advice of the humble and meek; if the St. Matthews brother offend thee, turn the other cheek and let him offend the again, and should he do so, go down before him on all-fours with diverted face, to continue his offending- It is a rule that may not bring you comfort, but there is a consola tion in feelir~g that it is thy brother not you who has sinned. We are indebted to our dis tinguished European correspon dent, nowv representing The Times in the old country-the land of our ancestors, where he is being wined ,,and dined, feted and banqueted upon Rhine wine,, Wurtzberger beer and Schwit-| zer kase, for a tive column min ion type letter from Geneva. Switzerland. which he sent us for publication, but having fail ed t'o enclose a check, and not having contracted for space we do not know whether to run his advertisement next to reading matter, -or give it run of paper, and therefore must receive it as personal information. The let ter is well written and gives a lot of statistics, but there is not a word in it to indicate how much copper stock our friend has disposed of to the Emperor of Germany, the king of Austria and jolly old Edward, king of England or whether not he has succeeded in copperimg any body. It is one of the chief traits of an American to do something, and the more exalted the. personage, the more glory there is in the doing and who is done, and when we read over his long letter and found nothing to indicate his usual thrift, we reached the conclusion that he has not sus pended business at all, but mod esty forbade him from exulting over his royal victims, at least until he had again gotten upon the high seas, beyond the juris liction and wrath of monarchyv.

The eleients on Wednesday seemed. disposed to test the earnestness of Cupid's captives, but was dis discoifitted utterly, for seldom if ever gathered a more lovely party of maidens or gallant gentlemen than assembled in the face of black clouds and thunder claps on this afternoon to be participants in the larvin-Bel ser marriage. The Baptist church had been beautifully decorated and at the appointed time the organ under the skillful hands of Miss Bessie Blackwell of Darlington, an nounced the arrival of the bridal party. The audience had been comfortably seated in the mean time by the ushers. Messrs. J. B. Rutledge, Ben Harvin, Sum merton, and T. D. Brohum, of Asheville,. N. C., and J. T. Bel ser, of Columbia. The bridesmaids advancing in couples took their places at one side of the marriage altar, while the groomsmen took position facing them. Little Miss Milred Johnson bearing flowers and Master Laurens Bradham bear ing the ring, came in just ahead of the bride, Miss May Harvin with Miss Lola Sublett, her maid of honor. The groom, Mr. Archie Hugh Belser, was accompanied by his brother and best man, Mr. J. Edwin Belser, of Columbia. The ceremony beneath a beau tiful wedding bell, was perform ed by Rev. Mr. Tolar, of the Baptist church. The impressive ceremony over, the happy couple left the church, followed by their attendants as follows: Miss Lola Sublett,. maid of honor, with J. Edwin Belser, of Columbia, best man; Miss Ger trude Bradham, of Manning, with Mr. S. H. Wilder, of Dar lington: Miss Alma Felder, of Pinewood, with Mr. Hurbert Sublett, of Summerton: Miss Ruth Etheredge, of Saluda, with Mr. Alvah Sublett, of Green ville: Miss Louise Scarborough, Summerton, with Mr. D. Sligh, of Darlington: Miss Annie Cosk rey, of Summerton, with Mr. P. B. Harvin, of Silver: Miss Leonie Druelle, of Charleston, with Mr. A. Eugene Brock, of Rhems: Miss May Harvin, of Manning, with Mr. Richard Richardson, of Pinewood; Miss Kate Cantey, of Summerton, with Mr. Randolph Murdough of HamptGn; Miss Lucie John s6ii;-of Manning, with Mr. A. Judson Plowden, of Summerton: Miss Florde Norris, of Vances, with Mr. J. Harvey Rogers. of Society Hill. The bride wore a dress of dainty loveliness. exceeded only by her own charming self. She is the daughter of Mr. Thos. H. Harvin, and belongs to one of the best and most widely known faimilies of Clarendon county. Mr. Belser is the fourth son of the late R. H. Belser, of this place, a young man of parts and' presence, well-known and liked by all, and the young couple have with them the best wishes for a long and happy reunion. After a reception at the country place of the bride's father the couple left for Manning, from which place they will begin their wedding tour, seeing various places and incidentally visiting' the Jamestown exposition. On Saturday at 10, a. m. a meeting of citizens of the com innity was held at Summerton in the interest of the High School movement. Mr. S. P. Holladay, County Superinten dent of Education, was present and gave information as to how to proceed in the matter. It was decided to undertake to enlist the following townships in the movement: Friendship, St. Paul, Calvary, Concord, St. James, Santee, Sammy Swamp, and Fulton. The school to be located at Sumnmerton, where adequate buildings to accommodate it are now building. If the co-opera tion of the above townships can be secured, the school is pretty well assured. The meeting at the Methodist church closed last night. The paster, Rev. A. S. Jones, had no help, but large congregations were at the different services and much good was done. B. Paxville Dots.

Everybody Hasn't a Bianket, Quilt or Skirt to Spare for Ice Keeping furposes-Peo pie Will Differ. Editor The Manning Times At this time when the sub ject of Sabbath Observance is being discussed, especially in regard to Sunday delivery, some facts from my personal exper ience may not be amiss. In the seventeen years, near ly, as a housekeeper, ' I have never found it necessary to have ice and beef delivered on Sun day, and I do not use a refriger ator either. Perhaps it may be helpful to other housekeepers, who truly desire to "Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy" and yet are puzzled about this matter to know how I man age. I order Saturday night 5 or 10 pounds of ice and the quantity of meat I shall need. I first wrap the ice tightly in two layers of old newspaper or wrapping paper, and .then place the meat, wrapped just as it comes f-oii the market on the ice. and roll the whole thing in a number of papers, and then in a piece of clean old blanket, quilt or flannel skirt, place in a cool place. being careful to have the meat on top of the ice so that that the water wi!l not injure it. I keep dressed chickens in the same way, and have never lost either, and even when I get only five pounds of ice there is plenty for ice tea for dinner. Now as to milk-I do not think the delivery of milk comes under the same bead. A cow does not accomumodatingly yield a double supply Saturday night, so that those who make a busi ness of selling milk could not supply- a sutlicient quanity to last customers from Saturday night till Monday morning. It is an absolute wo'rk of mercy and necessity that milking be done on Sunday. Even with a refrigerator, it is hard to keep milk sweet and pure for any ength of time. Nothing absorbs impurities more rapidly, and in an open pan, in a refrigerator with other things, j~t is soon un fit for use. Infants, little chil dren and sick people must have fresh milk. "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath" and it seems to me- that those who object to the delivery of milk on Sunday "are straining a gnats" and likely "swallow camels." From my own experience I atirm that it is not necessary to wait till Sunday morning to get ice and beef, except in case of illness, when any market man will willingly and gladly furnish what is needful.

When the next man takes unto himself a watch as thin as parch ment he little thinks that that thin watch results from army reg ulation. - Up to the ti me of the Allies ta king Paris the ordinary watch was convex in shape and called from its outline a "turnid." The officers of the Russian and other armies objected to this because of a man on parade looking un tidy, whether it was carried in the coat or the fob. Here in Paris, how ever they found that the watchmakers of the Palais Royal had contrived a chrono meter which got over the diffi culty. Flat watches were the fashion in Paris. The English when they appeared in the streets _of the French capibal marched in, not in gala dress such as the others wore, but in the raiment which they had worn on cam paign. Great was the impression which their habiliments created. But they at once adopted the smart flat watch and brought it back to England for our own manufacturers to copy.-London Sandard.
