Who said there was? Doubters are respectfully

What is Bamberg going to do about the
good roads question ? City council has
appropriated two thousand dollars for

>J. C. Garliugton, late editor of the
Spartanburg Herald, has purchased the
Carolina Spartan from Capt. Chas. Petty,
who has been the editor and proprietor
for many years. We regret to lose Capt.
Petty from the ranks of the journalists in
the State, but we are glad he is to have
such an able successor as Mr. Garlington.

State Senator James E. Peurifoy has
bought the Walterboro Press and Standard
from Mr. B. G. Price, who had owned
it for a number of years, he succeeding
hi9 father in the business. Mr. J. L. B.
Warren, who has grown up in the office,
will continue as editor, and will no doubt
carry the Standard forward to greater
things in the future. Here's our best wishes
for success to the paper and its new
proprietor.

Denmark, June 1.?A large crowd attended
the commencement exercises of

night the program consisted mostly

the graduating class. Ralph Goolsby
delivered the salutatory, Miss Bertha
Tyler, the class prophet, told of future
events, Misses Ceciie Walker and Martha
Riley brought down the house with their
admirable rendition of "Fast Friends."

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

MR. GARRIS IN WASHINGTON.
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.

When l)r. Clark, of Rhode Island, was

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.

Ezra Kendall tells of a man who was
riding on a train and pretended to become
ill after eating a sandwich. The man
opened his grip and took out a hot water
bag. "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."
