Appropriation of thousands, and the Red Cross Society, arc sont to Cuba to help out American adventurers in tho tropical regions Statosmen, vorlly, have their bands full, but wo aro equal to tho emer gency. ?% Tho criticism during tho lato war upon Gen. Hampton was that ho want ed to do all tho fighting hinisolf and leavo littlo for his men to do. lie is an old man now. Talking of the war pros pect tho othor day, he said that tho South had uot had tlmo to recuperate from tho exhaustion of her great strug gle for independence and should only be called upon to defend hor coast. Ho has but a poor opinion of Miles, the commandant of our armies. He said: "Ho is a big headed fool, a vain pen oock kind of a fellow.'' was tho way Gon. Hampton characterized him. "Milos," ho said, "nas latoly written a book tolling of 1 ib campaigns on tho frontlor and bis war against tho In dians, but there is nothing in it except valn-glorious-pruiso for himself." Tho State Hoard of Control met in tholr monthly session March ikl. They declined to taki away tho Hotel Dis pcti8arlos. So tho gentlemanly way faring man has his morning "nip" while he adjusts his neck-tlo. He touches a button and "they" do tho rest. Only one of tho gentlemanly liquor men was short?only 91,000.00 of tho Statos School fund?a gentleman of ?runsou, down in Hampton county. Tho Solicitor "was ordered to prose cute." "Ordered," mind you. A beck is as good as a nod. * * The Plutocrats don't want war.? They own tho Kail roads, telegraphs, tolephones, municipal bonds and na tional socurotios, aggregating ton thousand milb." and more. A gun fired, and thoy would drop in value 10 per cont, (a thousand millions and more). Therefore, the chances arc for peace- Quakers may Hop their wings and crow. McKinley has his or ders. Tho "Maine" investigation will investigate all summer. Dastard dol lars are domiuaut. Meetings have been requested to be had In all the counties to denounce the Lako City horror. We believe the public sentiment of the State already aroused to a healthy pitch upon the subject. Efforts on tho part of the State and Federal authorities are ac tive to bring the guilty parties to jus tice. Wo believe tho guilty parties in serious jeopardy and would not bo sur prised to hear of wholesale arrests. The South condones lynching for ono icrimo, but sho will notstroteh her con science beyond limit. The prohibitionists have called a convention to assomble at Columbia on the Mth of April to put a State tloket In the field. Sometimes it is well,An. be early on the Hold for -!hc fray.

Ho has eighty years on his ohouldors, a young dar ling, and an office of $5,000 per annum. He must koop tho Spaniards at a con venient distance. Tho old Horo has a chauco for a rich man's fight and a poor man's war. Whlto, of North Carolina, tho only colored Congressman Introduced a re solution appropriating $1,000 for tho i*ellef of the Baker family and Mason, of Illinois in tho Senate a resolution appropriating $10,000 for theBamo pur pose. A big gun on tho way to Honsacola stopped over at Atlanta on Sun day last and was viowod by thousands. The exou80 they give that thoy had never seen a big begun before sounds curiously from a town thtit knows Sam Jones. Thoy proach that the "good" people of Lako City had nothing to do with the Bakor assassination. But who did tho business and whore did thoy come from? The "good" pooplo aro dis charged. Prince Albort, hoir apparent to tho Belgium throne is en-route to tho United Statos, on ploasuro and im provomont bent. The point is made that only "Colo nels" are volunteering. -All right*, the ranks will bo full. As we go to press there is a rumor that Gen. Lee was assassinated at Ha ^ . vana.

Miss Lizzie Owings, daughter of Mr. Thomas Owings, of our town, left last Mouday for Sparlanburg, where she will atteud a Business College, When she returns :dio will doubtless be fitted for the worry and trial of the book-keep er's desk. Not as much fertilizer has been sold hero this year as. formerly, ae so much of the land Is being sown down.

We admire President McKinley? patience in the matter. Doubtless he knows something of the distinction and desolation, wo Americans would bo subjected to in case of war. God save us from wnr. C.
