M. V.

Bellinger, Esq^ by a friend of his in New Orleans, and it will be read with interest by our people, as it relates to the v political maneuvers of a South Carolina > darkey, who has been living in Hawaii I; ~ lor aome years, cwewan was souicimug of apolitical figure before he left this country: % "Honolulu, Sept. 17.?The Republican party primaries last Saturday afternoon were more largely attended than any ever! held before in Hawaii and a larger proportion of whites than ever before was sent to the Republican convention, leading men being choSen. ,*.x "For some weeks the two principal Republican newspapers of Honolulu have iterated that it was time for the Republican party to rid itself of the element that gave its moral support to embezzlers in office, and made ccynmon cause with the home rulers in corrupt measures and in necking to discredit the Dole administration. It was argn&l that the inauguration of the county-system ought to be ~ put into the hands 6f'the best element of citizens, and it was threatened that if the Iggpi Republican party did noj offer a ticket >-. along those lines, a citizen's movement would be inaugurated. Tbe result was that the better elemei^ of the community f took an unwonted interest in the primf aries. . < t "One of the most pictujesqne contests ^ of the primary was in the seventh precinct of the fifth district. Here T. McCants Stewart, a negro lawyer, sought Wfyj ' the election of a ticket composed of birnself and hjh friends,. for the pnrpose of secnring his own nomination as county attorney. After a very bitter contest he was defeated almost two to one. Stewtr art was formerly a Republican in South Carolina. Then he frent to New York, and during the campaign of 1892 he or: ganized a Democrati&political club among ^ the negroes of New York city, and afterwards applied to President Cleveland for appointment as United States district attorney for New Yog-k. .. ^ "He served a ter^ on the Brooklyn Board of Education *J)y appointment of fev.;.

If the uuluber of candidates for the three places on the dispensary hoard ot directors increases between now ami the assembling of the legislature next January iu the proportion it has been expanding in the recent past there will be about a regiment or more seekers after these jobs.

Representatives Efird, of Lexington, and Tatum, of Oraugeburg, are spoken of as candidates for this place. The candidates for places on the board have already begun active campaigns, mostly in the way of sending out circular announcements, accompanied by references, to members of the legislature.

Advertising cannot justly be called an expense, although it is an expense when ignorantly handled. Advertising is an investment. Dealers in articles where the profit is less than 15 per cent, figured per cent, of their sales as the proper proportion to be devoted to advertising. There are lines where the profits run np as high as 400 per cent. These lines demand a much higher per cent, devoted to advertising, as the daily sales amount to much less than where the profit is I umollnr If you ha?e anything to sell, never allow yourself to argue that there is no need of advertising. Your friends, even, after a while, won't ask you if you keep certain articles. They become tired of coutinually asking you what you have in your store aud gradually drift over to your progressive competitor who advertises persistently and continually. Blew One Breath Too Many. Anniston, Ala., September 21.?News reached the city this afternoon of the death of Charles Williams, a horse trader, at Jacksonville, as a result of a blow received a week ago while in a difficulty with Frank Woods, the 18-year-old sou of John F. Woods, of that place. The difficulty was caused, it is claimed by Williams, who, while in a drunkeu condition, made himself very obnoxious by blowing his breath in the faces of the young men of the town after he had been eating onions. Woods remarked that if Williams would blow his breath in his face he would knock him down. Williams then advanced on Woods and repeated the performance and was struck with a heavy billiard cue twice on the head, from which he never recovered. Woods has disappeared.

Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has a remarkable record. It has been in use for over thirty years, during which time many million bottles have beeu sold and used. It has long been the standard and main reliance in the treatment of croup in thousands of homes, yet during this time no case has ever been reported to the manufacturers in which it failed to effect a cure. When given as soon as the child becomes hoarse, or even as soon as the croupy cough appears, it will prevent the attack. It is pleasant to take, many children like it. It contains no opium or other harmful substances, and may be given as confidently to a baby as to an adult. For sale by Bamberg Pharmacy. Mrs. Goodart?See here!

PATHS OP THE OCEAN ORIGIN OF THE LANES TRAVERSFD BY ATLANTIC LINERS. The Northern and Sonthern Kootea to and From Europe, as Indicated by Lieutenant Maury?Minimizing the Danger of Collisions. In reports of the arrival of an ocean liner the statement sometimes appears that she came "by the southern route" to avoid ice or that she made her first trip of the season "by the northern lane." To the ordinary reader the idea of lanes or pathways on what we have .been taught to think of as "the trackless sea" seems somewhat paradoxical, but if you consult the charts in the office of a steamship manager or in the United States hydrographic office instead of the ordinary map you will find that there are four well defined highways across the north Atlantic as clearly marked to the navigator's perception j as is a time worn turnpike on land to the eyes of the pedestrian. ! It is over these great ocean thoroughfares that the Atlantic filers, with their tens of thousands of passengers and their hundreds of thousands of tons of freight, pass on their voyages between America and Europe. They are closely adhered to by all fast steam vessels and Just as carefully avoided by sailing ships and by the fishermen who ply their trade off the Grand banks. The situation of a small craft on the liners' route would be comparable to that of a man driving a light runabout along a railway track cleared for the fast limited, for these main traveled lines have been set aside by custom and agreement for the Atlantic's lightning expresses. Nobody is delayed at sidings or confined to special tracks, however, for the rest of the ocean is left to the ordinary mariner. It is only a few years since the tracks upon which the great liners shall run have been so clearly defined. Ever since the commerce of the north Atlantic assumed important proportions sailing masters have followed in a general way the great circle that curves northward from the west coast of England and Ireland until it reaches about 46 degrees north latitude in midocean, A then bears south westward pu?i ILIC coast of Newfoundland and Cape Race. Early experience proved that this was tbe shortest and so, of course, the quickest route between Europe and such ports as Boston, New York and Philadelphia. While steam navigators kept fairly near this course it was natural enough that they should vary from it somewhat according to the theories of individual captains. With the multiplication of steamships and the rapid increase in speed the very fact that all the larger and swifter vessels kept to one particular part of the ocean greatly increased the danger of collision between them. When forty or fifty swift steamers were crossing the Atlantic at the same time in one direction or the other, all keeping to the same general course irrespective of the direction in which they were traveling, it was obvious that the possibility of two of them coming together in thick weather was too great to be contemplated pleasantly. So Lieutenant Maury of the United States navy made the suggestion that I all fast steamships should traverse cer tain fixed routes, which he indicated? paths following the great circle pretty closely, for it was natural that the steamship companies would not agree to the adoption of any route that involved a loss of time in making the ocean passage. The most important provision suggested by Lieutenant Maury was that vessels going in opposite directions should observe the rules of the road by passing one another on the port side. To carry out this plan he proposed that west bound vessels should! keep about one degree to the northward of those east bound. Thus the greatest danger from the following of indiscriminate routes?that of collision between fast ships?would be avoided. While it is desirable in point of time for ships to steer their course far to the north, the presence of ice and fog in the high latitudes makes it impracticable for them to do so during fully half the year. Accordingly, Lieutenant Maury provided for two great highways, one for summer, the other for winter, one about three degrees to the northward of the other and each with west bound and east bound tracks. The rivalry between the different lines was so great at that time that each hesitated to give unconditional adherence to the plan, fearing that some other would gain an advantage. Two prominent steamship managers, however, quickly appreciated the advantages of Lieutenant Maury's plan and independently of their competitors gave instructions to their captains to follow the lines laid down by him. These two men were Clement A. Gris com, then toe bead of the American line, and Thomas H. Ismay, director ot the White Star line. As these two lines then owned the fastest and most perfect ships on the Atlantic, the influence of their example was very powerful. There' is no doubt that the adoption of these lanes has been of the utmost Importance in increasing the safety ot ocean travel and possesses distinct advantages aside from eliminating the possibility of head on collisions between the liners. Extra precautions are taken to keep the great highway clear of derelicts and other floating dangers or to give warning of their presence. Since the masters of sailing vessels know the steamer routes, they consult their own safety by avoiding them and hy keeping a sharp lookout whenever it is necessary to cross them in either direction. ?
