Read ha~. letter iu next week's is->ue. The report, that has been put in cir culation in this county to prejudice vote. ers that certain candidates for Congress are Catholics is absolutely false. There is ..ot a man in the race belonging to the Catbolie faith, but if there was, it shoulo not have anything to do with his qualifieations for the position. Pay no attention to rumors and the reports in tended to prejudice.

From the way the Congressional as pirants are hustling over the contry, and especially in Clarendon, they must regard tbis county the battle ground. and of course they will leave nothing amndone in the effort to capture this vote In Monday's Ne-ws and Courier, tbere -appears a card from Mr. H.

Peurafov and J. G. Padge-tt. T be arst three are from Charlestwn, and the last. two are from Colleton. Mr. Hughes is originally from Berkeley county. The Drimnary comes at an unusual time of she rear, in fact, a very busy time, but we hope the voters will take the time to go to ' he polls and vote so that Claren don will not be behind the other coun ties in taking a proper interest in the selection of a Cougressmnan, and a me ber of rthe lower H.'use of Representa tives to l t he va,-acey caused b.y the tt is really wonderful the interest now being manifested for the good people by the candidates for Congress. To hear them talk President Wilson is waiting patiently for them to reach Washington so the government can s'-rt on its road to progress, and these gentlemen are needed to guide the Ship of State; with out them, there would be nothing doing. and President Wilsoo would be at a loss to know what to do. Not only are they concerned about the welfare of the Na tion, but they are especially concerned about the down trodden condition of the farmers, which they are making a special effort to relieve--wit.b a pack age of garden seed, provided however. the farmer will cast his vote to help him win in the primary. The monthly meeting of the County Teachers Association took place lr the graded school building last aturdas with a good attendauce: after a son= service by the school girls and a scri p 'ure lesson and prayer by Rev. H. K. Williams pastor of the Manning Bap tist church Prof H. I Ellerbe of Jor dan delivered ar address on 'The Teachers Worth While." Miss Pau line Wilson sang a solo, and was foi 'owed with an address by Prof. Geo W. Green of Turbeville on "School and the Community." County Super intendent E. J Browne led the round table talk, and the meeting was one of the best yet held. by the association Since the organization of this a-socia tion its effect upon the schools of the county has been marked for good. A very deplorable accident occured t Alcolu last Thursday night Henry Hartly a young white boy agen abuu L4 years old was returning home with ais father from nis work when he was run over by a local freight train and Instantly killed. ,.s the father anti on were approaching the depot the oy asked his father to take from him ome wood that he had been carrying Tome, and just as he was about to cross ,be track s cars backed down cocking him down, and almost sev rief his body in twain. Co r o n e r rsy held an inquest, and the jury re urned a verdict that the deceawned came ohis death by being run over b% rain No. 333. Tbere is nothing in the erdict fixing the blame upon the rail ad, and there was no evidence going o show that the boy nad attempted t' wing on to the train, it is said there was no light on the back of the train, >ut that while backing the engine bell as ringing. Just what will be the -esult of this accident so far as the ailroad or'its emplo'.ees are concern ,d cannot be ascertained at this time, >ut it. is thought there will be a suit or damages. The Pimary Election. To nominate a Congressman for th irst Congressoioal District the State Executive Committee fixed April 1st or the primary, the second primary will take place April 15th. and a third. ,f necessary. April 22nd The committee also allows the club oils to be opened for the enrollment of ,ose who became of age since last No rember, these can be enrolled up to the 8r.h of March, and we would suggest hat the secretaries of the several cluos gee to it that all young men who be ame of age since last November have heir names put on the rolls so the3 nay vote in the primary on April 1st. The dates and places for the campaign neetiogs are as follows: Walterhoro, .arch 20th; Charleston. March 21st; 4onck's Corner, March 24th; Maaning larch 25th. It is to be hoped the people will take in interest in this election as it is im )ortant for the Irst District to have a oupetent Representative to help the )emoratie admoinistration make a suc less. There are a number of gentlenn n the race for the people to select from. md while they are all st~rangers to the najority we can say tnat the material o select from is good. Of course like my other citizen we have our personal reference. The State Committee has also fixed he same time for holding the primary select a member of the House ofVRep -esetatives for Clarendon, the fill the texuired term of Harvey W. Mitchum. tho ~resigned to accept the position ot state Dispens-iry Auditor, and by doing o s will save the expense of another >rimary, therefore when you go to vote or the Congressman you will also vote or a Representative. Remember the late for the first primary April 1st. A Card. 'o The Voters of The First Congress ional District: As is already well known I have had mnder consideration the matter of be ug a candidate for congress, but m. luies in thbe Senate precluded me f rom riving the subject the consideration it leserved. I have looked into the con litions thoroughly, and have reached he conclusion that I am not in a posi ion to mageO the race. The fee ol en rance rtquired by the S'-..te Execui ive Committee is entire' too much or one of my means; thbis fee woul Is lv be a part of the expense a candi late would have to undergo, therefore have determined not to contend for he honor. I feel deeply grateful to niy friends hroughout the district for their ex ressions of confidence in me; I do notd aelieve there is a candidate in the race ho has had more and better ind ue nents to run, neverthel ess. I cannot. -e n way cle ar to comply withb the wish s if these friends at this time To be electd by a considerable number of teople as their choice for such a highb ud t.ooorable position is indeed an ooor which I shall always cherish.j .nd wnich gives me encouragement to; trive the harder for the public welfare.

FOLLEYllO1EY-TAR The Water Works Prrgosition. There is an -ffo:t bei.: d - in 1 town to have watrt- woks. a ,'-. n . 0 be desired, out the qo-tiot wih u- is can we staud it this ime? The r ie of taxation is air-:d. .et-' hih in t'~ town of Mennitig, to put in this im provement will of course increase it, and in order for the people to under s-and what th,- condition i., we feel it is incumbent on us to give some infor mation. When the lerislature was abour to convene we went to the coutlti conimis stoners to ascertain what the inancial condition of t he count y was. and wa;s told the count. was practically out. (if debt, on the faith of this, the levy of one-ha-f mill for past indebtedness was taken off in order to relieve the tax avers as tuch as possible, hut on re iurning hone from the leislature. the new si erv .or i.frns us ibtt elaiis have been coining in which amount, in round numbers, to about $16.001), some of which there is no recori goiog to show the exis'ence 4f the-c claims: we are also informed that count, paper is out drawing inter-st at. the rat'- of 7 per c t, and there is ot,. aiiur 3.00 in smih to pat on t hese claims. The monifey the counft., owes muter he paid, there is no rain sayi-tn that, and the nly wat it cii be pa 1 is to inere-ase the levt next. year. One mill raises ab'uti $3.000, and if the county owes; $13,000 it. will necessitate an additional levy of not less than four milis, tik this increase or taxation intlo c ,sid-r at.ion with the neie-ss.tiry rais- fo- the otemplateil improvement or water work- and the taxpayers will re that the burden is ext-aordinar beavr. We are not opposed to itmprovelfm-nts, we know of no better imo>ravenent. nan to have a rood .ewertge s; stem in this town, but if we ar.- a re.tdy t-tx uurden-'d it seems to us we cau l ro Consider well before we e. .a 1 more; there is such a thinog as niti ? if more than we can chew, and under the present conditions we feel that if the people %ote uton thettslves a further taxatiou for water works and ,ewerage, however much it is de-ired, thev will he doing this very thing Did we notfeel that the burden of tax ?tion likely to accrue is more than we ire justified in undertaking at this ime we would gladly advocate the preposition contemplated by the pro zressive citizens of Manning, but un tr the conditions we do not think the property owners would bb safe in un 1ertaking it at this time. We can well alford to wait until the tax rate in be county can be lessened. Manning Society.

Sunday the African Methodist la church raised $745 in a special rally ni which is to :o towards the erection of a ol nw church. This is a series of rallies bi which will be had during the year. W rhey are basing their rallies upon un- o ique plans. The church membership la was divided into two tribes-known as B Bishop Turner Club and Bishop Chap- at pelle Club. June Walker was bead of la the Turner tribe and raised $270. Col lins is the oldest steward in the church g, and Walker is the o'dest trustee. At sa three o'clock the Baptist and Methodist sa ongregations met in union session, the B sermon was delivered by Rev. Garrick, J1 ;astor of the Baptist church. At this T service $45 was raised in the "penny" 0 ollection. Much enthusiasm was mani- g fested in this rally by the enttre negro ro population in Manning, and great pi ~rwds attendled all the services. They e. ~re to raise $4,000 before beginning the B vork.
