j The News and Courier is correct.
I The Item does heartily endorse the
! suggestion that the legislature enact a
j law prohibiting the sale and use of
[any save safety matches. Such a law
j would, if enforced, prevent many fires
j and would go a long way toward re
j habilitating the reputation of the. Long

The charges made by Mr. Means/
for many years clerk, of the Sinking
Fund Commission, against Secretary
of State Gantt, call for a. very search?
ing investigation. As Tillman, was
wont to remark in the stirring days of
'90, "There seems, to.be some thing
rotten in Denmark..'"

Congress is spending, so much: mon?
ey on irrigation in the arid West, on
building roads intthe Philippines and
on getting ready to. begin digging the
Panama canal that there is none ieft
for river and harbor improvements at ;
home, or for public, buildings.. It is an
old saying that charity should begin
at home, and we believe that congress
should apply the same rule, to- the ex?
penditure of p?nbric money for m^v.r*.
improvement.

The legislature esonyeasd ort \
Tuesday ami will adjourn; forty ways
thereafter. We trust, the combine!
wisdom o? the law makers will be
equal to the practical solution of all
of the important matters, that must
come up for settlement at this session.

The dispensary investigating com?
mittee will unquestionably afford Sen-- jj
ator Tillman the fullest and freest!;
possible opportunity to tell all n&
knows of "collusion" and all other
forms of graft in the State dispensary,
when the proper time arrives. We
have every confidence in the honesty
i
of purpose, -..horoughness and good j
judgment cf this committee and if tho
legislature will only back them up
and give them the power to require
witnesses to testify, the investigation
will be a real investigation before they
get through with it. Director John
Bell Towill, who informed the com- ?
mittee a few days ago. that he was
eager to dance to any- music the com?
mittee might furnish, will also be giv
.en the chance to <jut the pigeon wing

steps he may have learned since he ?

Governor Heyward's annual message ?
which was read in the General As- j
sembly is a comprehensive, but j
not voluminous document. We pub- j
I Va it today in condensed form to ac- j
commodate it to to our available space* j
The extracts given cover thc most im?
portant features of the message and
contain the recommendations that are
of most general interest. The part of
the message referring to the dispen?
sary system will undoubtedly arouse
the antagonism of -those people and
newspapers that have been clamoring
for months past for the summary de?
struction of the entire system root and
branch by means of the Brice law or
any other instrument that could be
made available, and we are awaiting
with interest the criticisms and com?
ments that will follow. It goes with?
out saying that The Daily Item has
no adverse criticism to make on Gov?
ernor Hey ward's views for the reason
that they are in entire accord with
the position we have maintained and
the views we have expressed from
time to time. We believe that the dis?
pensary system is theoretically the
best method yet devised for the regu?
lation and control of the liquor traf?
fic, and that the only reason that it
has not been more satisfactory in
praictical operation is because of the
men who have been in charge of its
administration. Honest men can be
found to manage the business ,and in?
stead of a machine for graft produc?
tion it oan be made a s vs tem for the
j control of the liquor evil, it is to be .
I hoped that Governor- Hayward's sane, ?
j conservative and. reasonable views will \
j have their influence oa the members j
j of the legislature. The message as a j
? a whole is worthy of careful reading, i
i '
The legislature can do no better than ;
to adopt his recommendations.

Cole L. Blease, of Newberry, says !
he is a candidate for governor. He may j
be the sort of man soma people want j
for governor of. South. Carolina, but j
he is not our ideal. Newberry has the j
distinction pf furnishing a w sird as- !
sortment of office-seakers, two ot j
whom, Blease^ and A. C". Jones; cannot
be duplicated! in thear Ees3?edive pe?

SHOOTING IN. LASCASTEK.
.Lascaster, Jan. ?:-J? Hasei Wither?
spoon, i&e popular manager of the
Lancaster Mercantile Company, of
which Gol. Springs i* president, was
?ahgerefcs?j shot today hf Tf-i. E-. S. j
Mc?pw, a pr?oticrog p&v?krias ->f
Lac causer. The cifSiraity occurred in ;
front of the compacts store and tbej
particulars as learned by yonr corres-i j.
pond^s&t are a*>cnt as? follows : i
Mt. Witaes&poGn standing talk-;,
ing to Mr. Samuel Roberts, a farmer j
froia whom, he had jost bought some j
cotton, wb^n Dr. McDow walked np.J
and asked 3ir. W?iherspoon something?!
about the company's refusal to semi j
bim a lamp which he had ordered.. Mr.
Witherspoon replied that Dr. McDow i
had not treated them right about a.
baby carriage, referring to a previous I
rnattar. Dr. McDow strnck at Mr. j
Witherspoon over the shoulder ot Mr. f
Roberts,, who was standing- between.
then-, knocking off Mr. Robertas hat. ?
W. MJPB. Brown, a clerk in the store,
ran tip and strnck Dr. McDow, knock- j
ing kim down. As the 12octor arose be j
began shooting with a revolver, which i
he had drawn, firing three shots. Two ?
of the bullets struck Mr. Witherspoon*
ojie in the body, ente-ring the lungs, andi
the other hitting him on the wrist. One
bullet struck Mr. Brown on the
finger.
Mr. George Beath, manager of. the.
Heath-Jones Company, and others ran
up and stepped the shooting Mr.
Heath placing himself in front of Mr.
Witherspoon and begging Dr. McDow
not to sheet bim again. Dr. McDow
was arrested ana taken to jail by
Sheriff Hunter and a policeman, the
sheriff having first disarmed the'Doc?
tor, who had two pistols.
As soon as a conveyance conic be ob- '??
tained, Mr. Witherspoon was carried
to his borne. In addition to local
physicians, he is being attended by :
Dr. Pryor, of Chester, and Drs. Fen- !
nell and Stevens, of Rock Hill, the ;
latter having beer brought to Lancas- '
ter on a special train.
Th's physicians regard Mr. Wither- ;
spoon's condition as biting extremely :
critical. They say thct there is some
hopes for him, however, if pneumonia ?
does not set in or an abscess term ?
around the bullet, which, they think, i
lodged in the lungs.
The shooting has caused intense ex
citemeot here. Mr. Witherspoon is one
of tue most popular young men in Lan?
caster, being a universal favorite, and !
the entire community anxiously awaits j
tidings from bis bedside.- Ne wa and

The- fertilizer season is now upon us, and ev
dry progressive farmer is calculating his re?
quirements. We have alway? advised small,
acreage and liberal, fertilization* as we believe
it the-safest and most economic; policy to adopt,,
md? particularly at season liise the one upon,
whick we are now entering, on account of the*
seriousness of the? labor situation- Owing, to.
>ur extensive association with farmers, we
aavean excellent opportunity of judging; ret?
raits* and our observations have convinced us
?hat small acreage in cottoaa, with plenty of
jrain, both well fertilized, yields best results.
Iiis unnecessary for us t? take up space in
idvocacy of the superior brands of fertilizers
?ve handle. They are the sam$, <as we have
leen selling for ten years, and as some of the
argest and most progressive planter? in this
md adjoining counties are our patron^ that is
sufficient. A well pleased customer ist e best
advertisement any business can have.
Already we have made some large contracts*
md we observe a growing disposition to buy
Jae higher class of goods, and we want our
xiends to know that the factory we represent*
ind for whom we are sole agents in the county*
mil make for us any grade of goods for which
?ve have demand. There is no material change
n the fertiliser situation as compared with a
fear ago, and considering the difference in the
price of cotton, farmers have cause to rejoice.
We have every reason to believe we will/Sell
ill of our old customers, but in. making our
contracts we provided for some nev/ ones, and
;hose who have never tried our fertilizers, will
io well to inquire from their neighbors, how
hey were plaasQd with them, then sse us
ts to prices.
Wishing all our Mends a Prosperous. New
