There was a game of base ball in Man ning last Friday, between Summertoi and a scrub nine of this place. The gami was scrappy all through but both side managed to keep down the score. Th< game was called on account of darknes with the score standing one to one. Manning and Charleston are in thi throes of base ball this week.

When we look over our exchanges and see the number of bankruptcy no tices in other towns, we come to tbe conclusion that Manning is not a bad place for trade after ali. There is a general business depression all over the conntry, no town is exempt from it, but our town is managing to get along in its usual conservative way. The parties convicted before the town council for selling liquor have been indicted in the State court on the same charge. Will this be jeopardising liberty twice on the same charge? I not, then after the State court get; through with them they may be hauled up before the United States court fot selling without a revenue license. On the evening of June 1st, the peo Die of this county will have an oppor iunity of welcoming one of South Caro lina's favorite sons ex-Governor John C.

Besides this distinguished gentleman's address, there will be a well selected musical program. Friday evening "Josiah's Courtship' a pleasing little drama was well render ed by the young people of Summerton aLt the Manning school house.

It is hoped the Summertonians will give the play in Manning again, when they will be greeted with a much large audience. The dispensary stock has at last been disposed of to the relief of Commission er Breedin, who has resorted to all man ner of means, and has gone to consid erable expense to induce a dispositior of the stock. Dr. B. B. Breedin of the Sumter board was here yesterday, and to him Commissioner Breedin sold the stock at 50 cents on the dollar. A ful] statement will be published next week. The loss to the taxpayers will be on siderable, just how much we cannot tell until a complete statement has been ob taed. Those who do not care to sit unde: the trees on the court house square or Subday afternoons do not have to. we have never heard any who enjoy them selves on the benches, complain of those whc prefer going to church. In faci "bench warmers'' are perfectly satisfi ed and care not to be solicitous of oth ers. If however, it is against the mor als of this communmtv to be on the couri house snuare inste~ad of atschurch, gel the council to make it a crime for no1 attending church, punishable by fine o1 imprisonent, as was the law when it the early days of this country zealots did the ruling. Maj. Abe Levi and THE TIES edi tor, were among those initiated into th( Ancient order of the Mystic Shrine, at Charleston last week, and while we cat not tell what was done at the ceremon ial session, the public exercises fur nished much amusement for the large crowd of ladies present who laughet themselves into hysterics at tne antics of what on other occasions, were digni fed men. Our readers have no idea hov Major Levi looks in costume, he is sight, and as for THE TIES editor, th< least said, the easiest mended. Thi pair were no doubt taken in, because o being good to draw to, arnd next yeari is expected that Manning will havy more representatives in the shrine Every mason ought to secure the high er degrees and qualify himself for th< play ground of masonry.

There will be varied and divergent I- views regarding the action of Governor 1: Wilson, of Kentucky, in extending par . dons to former Governor W. S. Taylor, I, former Secretary of State Charles Fin r: ley and others, accused of participation in the conspiracy which led to the as sassination of Senator William Goebel, [. afterward declared to have been elected - governor. An unusual and peculiar feature of the case is the granting of pardons to men who have never been tried and convict ed, hence who are, in the eyes of the a law, innocent. e Ordinarily the use of the pardoning - power under such circumstances, even .though legally permissable, could scarcely be justified, for the law estab lishes in the interest both of society and the accused person himself, a meth od whereby his guilt or innocence must - be determined. Failure to invoke that method not on ly deprives society of its right, but leaves a cloud uoon the life of the man who is the recipient of such question able clemency. As a rule, therelore, every person reasonable charged with a crime should be required to submit to the test by which his guilt or innocence might be, with fairness and impartiality, judically proven. But the conspiracy which led to the assassination of William Goebel was un ique in the history of crime. It was a political crime on either side of wvhich there was intense partisan alignment; in Kentucky opinion relative to this case, there was no middle ground. It is probably true, therefore, as Gov ernor Wilson says, that a fair trial for Taylor and Finley would have been im ~possible; that before a jury of Goebel sympathizers they would have met with scertain co'lvictions. and before one of e anti Goebel views they would have e found as speedy acquittal. n Conceding that, whatever the -evi e dence, guilt or innocence should be de termined by leigal trial, the chances are rthat these men could not have been con victed with the evidence in hand. be rfore a fair and impartial jury. Governor Wiisoni's ceeienev did not 0 extend to those who admittedly partic 1 pated in this conspiracy or who, by con clusive evidence, were shown te have Sbeen parties to it. I n the light of logic and the facts, Stherefore, it would seem that Governor Wilson has done Kentucky a service in thus clearing the records of this deplor able case. SLeft in statu quo, though nearly a decade has passed since Senator Goebel e was wantonly shot down, it could only e have served to keep alive the fires of a d political prejudice and hatred which would have been matfifest in every state d camnaign until death removed the men eabout whom the factional strife center 'Taylor and Finley would have been an issue in years to come as they have e been since their flight to Indiana, and vet they could never have been brought to trial for a crime with which their connection was at least doubtful. nWXith the case thus disposed of they 1will disappear in the vortex of oblivion ywhich claims those to whom pulilic in terest no longer attaches, from whom the spotlight has been turned off.

EvF'ery man. old and young, is to wea a w hite carnation or some other fiowe in remuembrance of mother and he kind and soving care to him.

If she is not available for hi verbal message, he is to sin down an wr ite it to her. Those who are so ut fortunate not to have living mother are to wear the flowers in comnmeri tion of mother and join in with nb nation's true sons in the token of lov and devotion for mother. IThat such a scheme may be carrie out it is necessary that some organize plan be operated: I suggest that th young men of the different churche of the towvn of Manning get togetbe and arrange plans for furnishing at -presenting to every man of the entir community, a flower on that day, er I oining upon them its symbolic meal ing and obligation. - There are some cities in the Unic which you might visit on the 2nd Sur day in ~May and you would find ever male regaled with the flowers.
