The following is tbs final report of tbe season of the weather and crops io South Carolina issued yesterday by Dirtetor Bauer of tbe Sooth Carolina section of the climate and erop service of the United States Weather Bureau : The week ending 8 a. m., Monday, Oat 1st, was again v*ry hot, tho tem? perature averaging o?er six degrees per day warmer than usual, and had a maximum of 98, and a minimum of 55 degrees, the former al BUoktillo, the latter at Oberaw. Tbe week was rainless. The ground hat again become too dry for plowing, and but little oats or wheat seediog his been done, the work awaiting more fa?orablo oooditioos for preparation and f ermioatioo The weather was unin? terruptedly favorable for gathering orope. Corn ie being housed, aod now it is eertain that lese than half a orop will bo gathered. Late eoro ie a oomplete failure. Ootton pioking made favorable pro* grass, aod from half to seven-eighths of tbe orop has been gathered. Yields ars estimated at from half to osarly three fourths an average orop Many oorreepondents etate that picking will be praetieally completed by Oot 15th, whieh is uouasually early, due to tbe continued abnormal beat and dryness. There will be no (op erop of aoy ae ooaot Sea island yields are also light, and half has been gsthered. Fees, sweel potatoes, upland rice, oaoe and hay erops are unusually poor, io many plaoes failures, exoept that s few localities report an abuodanoe of grass for hay. Early riee harvest is finished, and June riee is ripening. Tbe rice orop ie tbe only iuo one cultivated this year Birds are destructive in tbe Georgetown districts.

WASHINGTON LETTER. Washington, Oct i?There will be a democratic majority of not less than ten in tho next house That ie the way the democratic congressional campaign oommittee figures it out, nnd in doing the figuring allowance has been made for every reasonable contingency Republicans privately admit that these figures are very conservative, and that they have almost given up hope of retaining control of tbe house, unless there is a change in public sentiment amout ing almost to a stampede before election day. Even the republican congressional committee has not been' patting out any claim, except in the most perfunctory way, of a republican majority in the house. On tbe contrary, its chairman, Rep resentative Babcock, has been pre* paring his petty for defeat. * Among the contingencies allowed for by tbe democratic oommittee are loss of seats in New York end Pennsylvania, which tbe party managers in those steten are confident of saving. Mad as the repoblioen lesdere are with tbe lost of power and conquest, end es determined ae they ere to try to turn this liberty loving republic into a world conquering empire founded oo no higher principles than that wbioh dominated the derk ages of youth?"might makes right"? they do not dare to pnblioly proclaim that purpose ee plainly as Ex Con? gressman Dongan, of Ohio, once e democrat, did in a speech made in Washington, in which he attempted to justify Mr McKinley end bis im? perialistic policy in the Philippines. The following sentence from Mr Doogen's speech reveals the true inwnrdnees of the republican policy, which they have been so anxiously trying to conceal by general talk about bettering tbe condition of tbe poor natives and improvement in Amerioan oommeroe : "In my opin ion, title is fixed only by the survival of tbe fittest, and that is why America is going to role the earth " In other words, no people's title to their own country is good against the greed end avarice of a stronger country. Surely e majority of Americans are not willing to enter the 20th Century championing auch e doooment Representative Livingston, of Georgia, thus sums up the ettitude of tbe two parties towards trusts : "In e reoent spsecb made by Senator Beveridge, this statesman says that tbs republican party, as well as the democratic party, is opposed to trosta, only the republican party proposed to limit end regulate trusts, while the demooretic party would do nothing. Now. this statement was msde to intelligent people If th\e is so, bow could Mark Henna go to Baltimore aod get from the troete of tbet city alone $80.000, while Bryan, even bed he tried, could nnt have got 80 oeota. Senator Banna ban ssid tbere ere no trusts lie knows nnd so does every thinking men or woman that this is false Here is evidence of tbe ttusts. This yeer it tekea 50 per cent more wheat to buy a plow than it did last yeer. It tekss 20 per cent more corn nnd it tekes from $4 to $4 50 e month more to live oow tbao it did a year ago. Why ia this ? It is because of tbe trusts " How desperste the repoblioan managers are getting may be judged from their having ordered the parly press to try to make political capital out of i'ae experience of Teddy iu Colorado Wheu tbe navy department reject ed tbe bids for armor for wawhips, put in by the armor trusts, and announced that Secretary Long would exercise the authority conferred upon him by congress to establish an armor making plant, if better bids were not submitted, it was predict? ed that the armor trusts would get tbe contracts, if they made a satis factory contribution to the republican campaign fund That prediction is iu a fair way to be verified Secte tary Long has been dickering with the agents of the trusts, sod it is offi cialy announced that he expects to mske a satisfactory contract with them for the armor, which doubtless means that Hanna has already made e satisfactory arrangement with them for campaign contributions The Chinese minister to tbe United States having succeeded so well in getting the administration to act io accordance with his private advice baa gone a step further and is now giving the administration public advice through tbe medium of news paper interviews He wants this government to set aa mediator be tween the powers and China, and says if it doesn't, it may in the end find itself shut out of China com mercially That "chink" has got nerve to thus threaten the man who has been as friendly to bim and bis government as Mr McKinley has beeu Lookout for preposterous republican claims Orders have gone out from republican national headquartera to the party newspapers to print con tinually and conspicuously during the three weeks previous to the election paragraphs claiming states enough to give McKinley 25 or 30 more clec torai votes than he had in 189b'. Tbe idea is said to be that such wholesale claims persistently made, will catch voters who wish to be on tho win? ning side _ Nu otber t>iilu osn squat OeWitt't Little j Btriy Rh m tor prompt'**?, certainty aod i efficiency J 8 Hughion ?
