Doubters are respectfully referred to the recent happenings in dispensary circles in Charleston. * * * What is Bamberg going to do about the good roads question ?

Harris Will Improve Rates. Hon. C. W. Garris, chairman of the State board of railroad commissioners, held a conference to-day with Manager H. R. Jackson, of the Charleston Freight Bureau, and as a result, the freight rates will be further amended and the business of Charleston improved. There has been much dissatisfaction with the railroads' classification of the rates on shipments of excelsior. The railroads have made a carload consist of 20,000 pourds, and the merchants have contended that this was unreasonable for this amount of excelsior could not be loaded in a car. The matter was placed in Manager Jackson's hands and he had much correspondence with the commissioners An tho cnliioAf Tho matter u-ae fnllv gone over by Chairman Garris to-day and he determined that the position of the Charleston complainants was right and he will move to reduce the minimum car load to J 0,000 pounds. This announcement will give much satisfaction among the merchants who are interested. Another important matter which was considered at some length was the readjustment of the rates on the CharlestonSavannah division of the Atlantic Coast Line. The State law provides that the same rates must be charged on a line in both directions, and the rates on the Savannah division are in excess of those running north. The freight bureau consequently has the dead line on the railroad and upon the presentation of the case to Chairman Garris he promised Manager Jackson to give the matter immediate attention and adjust the rates within the next thirty days. The question of the rate on starch is also of some importance to Charleston at this time and Chairman Garris will give his attention to the matter with a view of giv jno- Charleston as favorable rates as poslible. ouairman Garris has given au attentive ear to Charleston's complaints and grievances of the railroad's uujust discriminations and the fact that mauy of these wrongs have been righted is largely due to his efforts. He has anuouuced on several occasions that he is a friend of Charleston and he desires to promote her commerce and he has ruled favorably towards this city on several of the complaints which have lately beeu carried up to him.?Charleston Evening Post, May mh.

Chairman of the State Railroad Com- t minion States Southern Views of i the Political Situation. 1 C. W. Garris, chairman of the South ( Carolina railroad commission and for many years a prominent Democratic politician in that State, has been in Washing- t ton on business. He said to a Star reporter that he was here strictly on business and not to talk politics. He had been 10 busy attending to his official duties that he had little time for fully gathering the opinions of his constituents as to j prospects next year, but the opinion as , expressed in the papers of the State and by the people with whom he had talked * was not favorable to Mr. Cleveland for j the Democratic nomination next year. "Even a blind mau could see that," said Mr. Garris. "Cleveland is not acceptable | to the South Carolina Democracy for two reasons: First, South Carolinians do not believe he was true to party principles during his last term, and second, they do not believe that any man should have a third term as president of the United < States, regardless of whether the terms i are consecutive or scattered over a period i of years. However, I do not undertake to say specifically what Democrat would suit my State, but I do say that South Carolina would go a long way along the i line of concessions to bring the federal government back to Democratic administration. Many of our people regard Senator Gorman, of Maryland, qualified in every way to lead the Democratic party next year. Utliers are partial to ?iuuge Parker, of New York. I feel safe in saying that our people are willing to go again to the east for a Democratic leader if it is necessary. It begins to look as if the oldtime allowance between the South and East with couseqent victory, is coming around. With the solid vote of the South and some of the Eastern and Western States the Democratic nominee would be elected. Our people feel that there is a chance for success next year and will do all they can to assist in making that success certain. "The South is unalterably opposed to negro office holders and is willing to make more than a reasonable concession to have its feelings respected in this particular. The present Republican administration has done more in the name of buncombe to precipitate a positive southern i feeling in this direction than all of its predecessors. However, I want it understood that the white people of the South have not any feeling of prejudice against the negro as a citizen. They are still willing and ready to, and do, as a matter of fact, give him justice in the courts and in business transactions, but they do object, and will for all time, to such social and political prominence as would inure to him out of the Rooseveltian idea of what ought to be done with the negro, i This about sums up, from this oue stand' point, the concessions that our southern people would make to relieve themselves from the threatened Republican idea of negro domination of the South. "Of course the Republican tariff policy is not any more satisfactory to southern Democracy than it is to the northern Democracy, and the South may be counted on at anv time to combat this one-sided system. Our southern people will not combat a sound monetary system. They are fairly prosperous now, but they are wholly opposed to trust control of manufacturing, transportation and productive industry as they were in the last two presidential elections."-Washington Star.

His Last Hope Realized. [From the Sentinel, Gebo, Morn.] In the lirst opening of Oklahoma to settlers in 1889, the editor of this paper was among the seekers after fortune who made the big race one tine day in April. During his traveling and afterwards his camping upon his claim, he encountered much bad weather, which, together with the heat, gave him severe diarrhoea which seemed almost impossible to check, and in June the case became so bad he expected to die. One day one of his neighbors brought him one bottle of Chamberlain's colic, cholera and diarrhoea remedy as a last hope. A big dose was given him while he was rolling on the ground in agony, and in a few minutes the dose was repeated. The good effect of the medicine was soon noticed and wit hin an hour the patient was taking his first sound sleep for a fortnight. That little bottle worked a complete cure, and lie cannot lielo but feel grateful. The seasoji for bowel disorders l*ing at band suggests this. Sold by Bamberg Pharmacy.

"He got a sympathetic porter," Mr. Kendall continues, "to fill the water bag with boiling water and then he opened up his lunch basket, took out a piece of fried steak and warmed it up on the water bag. You talk about your light housekeeping! Then, after he had warmed the steak, he cut it all up with a pair of scissors and fed it to himself with a pair of sugar tongs because he would not take a chance with a fork going around a curve. But his finish was a limit. After he had eaten the steak he unscrewed the stopper of the water bag and poured himself out a cup of hot coffee. He had the grounds in the bag all the time."
