The Governor's Message.
The messago is full, written with
clearness, and puts the peop'o's repre
sentatives and the people in intelligent
understanding of tho condition of the
State's affairs. All tho departments
are healthy and honestly conducted.
Troasurer, Secretary of State, Comp
troller, Attorney Goneral, and Adju
tant General, all doing their duty. His
Excellency has little to do but to com
mend and congratulate tbe people.
Tho samo may bo said of thu charita
ble, penal and educational institutions
?as tho Colleges, the Insane Hospital,
the Penitentiary, the deaf and the
blind Institution. The State us a whole
must be congratulated. Tboroarc fea
tures that may be criticised: too many
candidates aro scrambling to get into
our great two million dollar grog en
terprise and it leads to tbe suspicion
that thero is something rotten in the
State of Domark?ordinarily tho Hood
people would not, hankeraftor handling
whiskey for tho pitiful salaries attach
ed; and henoo the suspicion.
The Governor appreciates the ne
cessity of dolDg a good part by tho old
soldiers and it is probable that a homo
will be built for the homeless.
The Governor congratulates tho
State upon tho increase of taxable
property by some ten millions. This
he may well do, but not incuriously
taxes aro Incroased from year to year.
It was ever thus, Statos aro not unlikH
men. As wo climb tho mountain tide
the view oxpauds and wants expand.
All the. departments want more money
?especially the insane a&sylum and
the schools. We all know the case of
the old gentleman whoso gals being
grown up wanted a new bouse; then
when tbe houso was up a piano?then
the carpets und the curtains and the
Governor McSweeney however, hss
given tho S'ate a first-class public doc
ument showing tho State In good con
dition and bis administration of the
State's affairs eminently creditable,
lie is to be congratulated.
Child Labor?The Governor urges
legislation on tbo subject and favors it.
We advise to go slow as yet This is
a yankeo proposition, in apprehension
of our cotton manufacturing competi
tion. Go slow for the present. This is
not a manufacturing State as yet, but
an agricultural State. Cotton, rico and
tobacco are our moneyed crops, with
sugar and tea it may be, yet to add.
Lot our lilliputlan manufacturing in
terost get into the saddle.
The Governor favors compulsory ed
ucation and nrgues that ignorance is
dangerous to society. This may be or
may not bu true. Circumstances mako
it an involved questiou with us. There
should bo no hurry and the question
be conservatively < onsidcred. It will
be ft question on the stump this Sum
mer. It may be al! right for Germany
or Massachusetts and yet a bad lit for
South Carolina.
J. II. Hoyt, Jr., the intelligent Co
lumbia correspondent of his father's
paper, the Groenvllle Mountainoor,
writes as follows:
"With tho opening of tho Legisla
ture comes a tlood of political talk and
gossip to the capital. Candidates for
State ofllces are already in the field.
It is understood that Gov. McSweeney
will stand for re-election, and the
other candidate* so far announced are
ex-Solicitor M. F. Ansel, of Greenville;
Mr. D. C. Heyward, of Colleton; Con
gressman W. J. Talbert, of Edgelield,
and Lieutenant Governor Jas. IL Till
man, of Edgefield. There will be
others. Including perhaps, Secretary of
State M. U. Cooper.
Attorney General Bellinger will
stand for Congress in his district to
succeed Mr. Talbert. Tho assistant
Attorney Genernl, Mr. U. X. Guntor,
Jr., will be a candidate for Attorney
Genoral, and it is understood Speaker
Stevenson will oppose him.
For Secretary of State, the present
assistant, Jesse T. Gantt; the Gover
nor's private Secretary, E. H. Aull;
Col. J. Harvey Wilson, a representa
tive from Sumter; Hon. J. Thomas
Austin, of Greenville, and doubtless
one or two moro will be candidates.
Washington, D.C., Jan. 14.?WuTing
Fang is openly credited with boing the
author of a mvstoriotio anonymous
book attacking the proposed re-onact
ment of tho Chlno?o exclusion law,
which caused a sensation In official cir
cles. If it is developed that he is re
sponsible for the printing and distribu
tion, it is expected that he will be
called to strict account by Secretary
Hay owing to a similar incident two
years ago. \
These would appearjvery ridiculous.
These Yankees, tho brightest people
on earth, with Secretary Hay at the
head of the class, ought to be able to
^answer the Chinaman. Besides, the
grunt is in the teeth of the Text?"Oh
that Mine enemy would write a book!"
Again, only the Congress has to do
with the Exclusion Question, and the
presumtlon is not violent that Con
gressmen should be equal to meeting
Wu or any other of the Celestials In
Chips of News.
Prlnco Henry, brothor of Emperor
of Germany, William, and Admiral of
