The year 1908 bids fair to be one of the most prosperous in the history of Bamberg. Let us all work together, shoulder to shoulder, laying aside ail differences of opinion, and put our town and community in the front rank of progressiveness and prosperity. jpl-. * * * Some fellow from the up-country, who c- was elected to the legislature at the recent election, has prepared a bill which he will offer at the coining session, making it a misdemeanor, punishable by tine - and imprisonment, not to pay a debt. His bill provides that failure to pay for any article bought shall constitute the crime of obtaining goods under false pretences. A right good bill, but it will hardly pass a South Carolina legislature. * * John H. Averill has published in a * daily paper a petition to the general assembly, asking that an appropriation be made for a State exhibit at the St. Louis Exposition. An appropriation of $2,500 was made by the last legislature for this - purpose, but this amount is considered entirely too small. We trust the general assembly will decide against any further appropriation. The State's hnances are not in condition at this time to warrant any outlay on exhibits at St. Louis or anywhere else. Of course Mr. Averill will :\ get a nice slice out of any appropriation as commissioner, and therefore his <? - great interest in having the State make an exhibit is easily accounted for. v ^? Railroad Commissioner Harris. ?* Tuesday morning of last week the State railroad commission made public its decision in the matter of the petition of the * otton mills for a reduction of the rate on - . i 1? rru? .v manuiaciurea couon gwti?. mc . - also charged that the port of Charleston was being discriminated against in the routing of shipments; that the Southern Railway especially, declined to route goods via Charleston, but instead shipped |r via Norfolk. The commission, after a public hearing and exhaustive investigation, decided that the failure to route by Charleston lay with the cotton mills, they having the : - ' right to ship their goods by whatever route they chose, and that Charleston was ; ~ not being discriminated against in the matter of rates as compared with Norfolk; but that Charleston should have quicker freight schedules from various points in ; ' - this State. It also reduced the rate on; cotton goods 20 per cent., to take effect the first of February. The decision is a lengthy one, consuin~ ing eight columns of space in the daily papers, therefore we cannot print it or Z: even comment on it at length. But the! paper has attracted so much attention, on account of the equity and logic of its j . \ v reasoning, that we bring it to the attention of our readers, hoping that many of! them whom we are sure have opportunity J will read the decision. It is the work of i Hon. C. W. Garris, of Bamberg, who has been, a member of the board for several years; the country boy who was born and C v raised in Colleton county, not many miles ' fyom this town. Mr. Garris acted for the commission in this matter, investigated the subject thoroughly, and wrote the Eg. decision. The daily papers commend the decision Er for its lucidness and logic, as it makes plain an intrjeate and little understood question. The Columbia State is especially commendatory in its language, stating that the paper is the .best by far which haS;Come from the commission. From a lengthy editorial in That paper on the subject, we take the following: "It is to be hoped that those desiring light on the very important but intricate question of freight rates read the decision of the State railroad commission printed in The State yesterday. The decision is really illuminative, bringing within reach of the untrained mind an understanding of the freight rate issue between Charleston and the Southern railway recently submitted for?adjudication. "There is perhaps no subject in everyday business more abstruse than that of railroad freight rates,.4>o many technical terms are. employetf, so many different ^^wdrs-Sre applied, such a multitude of coniiitoroctc t<? 1 >< ( ( m ST d f> rfd ir/UUXtlg UJiW *4W? V ? ' ? ~ that it requires a special education to make rates and almost an education to fully understand them. It is to the credit of the State railroad commission that in this decision they have made an intricate matter tolerably plain. The exposition is lucid and the reasoning bv which a determination has been reached is logically very sound. The paper is a convincing one and is by far the best which has come within our memory from the commission." Unfortunately the railroad commission has not been regarded as a strong factor in arbitrating the differences which arise between the railroads and the people, and many of our citizens have looked upon it as well-nigh useless, having the erroneous opinion that the position was simply one of ease with a fat salary attached. This idea is being dispelled, and the people are beginning to know somewhat of the arduous duties and intricacies of the office, and the credit is due to the able and logical course of the distinguished son whom Bamberg now claims as her own. With an earnest and conscientious desire to fully understand and solve in a just and impartial way the grave problems before him, he studies well the interests of all parties concerned. Naturally then, his decisions are based on justice and right, and press and people are realizing that in C. W. Gairis we have the ablest railroad nnmmissioner who has ever held the office in this State. The Cotton 3Ia**ket.

Little Vivian Green Sunday After Sad Accident. The entire city was shocked yesterday to learn of the death of little Vivian Green, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. A. Green of this city. The news that the child had been burned was known to the public Saturday but *it was not thought that the child's injuries were of a serious ! nature. Dr. J. L. Jeffries who attended | the child was inclined, however, to regard the case as being more serious than the family thought and expressed an opinion to that effect. The grounds of this fear on the part of the physician was all too truly realized. Sunday morning the child became worse and three physicians were summoned. It was apparent that the case was then hopeless and all that medical skill could do to save the child was unavailing, death ending her suffering at 11 o'clock. The accident was one of those unavoidable happenings which sometimes occur in spite of every precaution. The little girl liad gone into the dining room for dinner on Saturday ! and was warming in front of an open grate fire when her apron caught. The servants who were in the room at once gave the alarm and the father of the little girl rushed in to the rescue. Mr. Green was badly burned about the hands in extinguishing the child's clothing. ; Her body was not burned in the least cx! cept on the hands and face, which were right badly burned. From the not very serious nature of the external wounds it is inferred that the child swallowed some ! of the flame and that this more than the burns was the cause of her untimely death. The deceased was only four years of age and was a most lovable girl, popular with her playmates and loved by all who knew her. The funeral exercises will take place tomorrow morning at 11 .o'clock and will be conducted by Rev. J. E. Grier. Short exercises will be cou, ducted at the house and the interment will follow at Oakwood Cemetery. The bereaved parents have the sympathy of the entire community in this their sad bereavement.-Spartanburg Journal, Mon! day, December 20. Spaiitanburg, December 29.?The four-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. A. Green was so severely burned on Saturday that she died Sunday afternoon. She approached too close to a grate in which there was a hot fire, when her ! clothes caught. Her father was near at hand and extinguished the flames as soon 1 as possible, but he was too late. Two of his fingers were badly burned. That is the second child they have lost within a year. A little boy died in the early part of this year or end of last year. The family has the sympathy of many friends. ?Spartanburg correspondence News and Courier. New Century Comfort. Millions are daily finding a world of comfort in BuckJen's Arnica Salve.

The victims were negroes, a man and a woman, who had killed Mr. W. K. Jay, a prominent young white farmer. Etc had occasion to go out to a negro cabin near his house to stop a disturbance between some negroes, and he was shot with a shotgun, his entire head being almost blown off. The negroes at once left the scene, but the alarm was given, and they were captured a few miles from where the foul deed was committed. Neither one would admit the crime, the man accusing the woman and she saying the man did the shooting. After the inquest the negroes were put in charge of a constable and started to jail, but on the way a crowd took the prisoners from the constable and lynched them.

Not long ago, says Brooklyn Life, a philanthropic lady visited a Canadian almshouse and displayed great interest in the inmates. One old man particularly gained her compassion. "How long have you been here, my man !" she inquired. "Twelve years," was the answer. "Do they treat you well ?" "Yes." "Do they feed you well "Yes." After addressing a few more sympathetic, home questions to the old man, the lady passed on. She noticed a broad and steadily broadening smile on the face of her attendant, and on asking the cause was horrified to learn that the old man was none other than Doctor , the superintendent. She hurried back to apologize. "I am so very, very sorry, Doctor !" Here her sincerity notably increased. "I will never be governed by appearances again." Finds Way to Live Long.

"Peter Schennn," says the Philadelphia Times, "was fond of telling a story of a German typesetter who had been boasting of his capacity for lager." "Youse Dutchman," he was told by a bartender, "don't drink as much beer as people say you so do! "Of course not," chipped in one of the customers. "And I'll bet you Dutchy, you can't drink a bucketful." The German was lost in thought for a moment and hurriedly rushed from the saloon, whil? the others roared with laughter. Hi? boasting was still the topic of conversation when he returned live minutes later, and calmly said: "I'll take that bet." The .money was posted, a bar bucket, holding five quarts, was tilled, and the German promptly drank the beer and took the $5. Nobody questioned that lie had woji fairly, but one of the onlookers asked: "Say, what did you leave the saloon for that time?'
