nurderers have proceeded Up to this date five have been tried three convicted and two acquitted and yet the papers that have been denouncing the prosecution an seeking to create a sentiment in favor of the parties accused have not had the courage to come out and credit the Commonwealth for an honest and fair trials of the twpaq pitted j they have failed t even credit the jury that acquitted Ripley and after denouncing the jury that sat in the Berry Howard case they are not likely to retract Theynwere a ago the jury being composed of Demo crats and the impression was sought to be made that conviction was inevitable by reason of this fact It failed to materialize as they predicted and ought to strengthen public confidence in the actions of the prosecution of the parties indicted for

in 10 years has there been a time when the situation in Nation al politics was as threatening for the republican party as at present We are just preparing to go before the country for the election of a new House of Representatives Apparently it will be 1890 over again How are we preparing for it We seem to have no leader The republicans in the House are a leaderless mob A minority of the republicans there combine with the democrats and that is an end of party responsibility and party dicipliue Exactly the same situation prevails in the Senate There is rio leader and a few Senators who were elected as lepublicans stand ready to form an alliance with the dem ocratsif indeed the alliance has not been formed already to overthrow the policy of the administration and Bid defiance to party authority How is it to endI Unless the big men of the party come to their senses it will end in disaster after disaster and loss of the presidency in 1904 Internal Revenue Commissioner Yerkes holds that farmers and growers are privileged to sell leaf tobacco of their own growth and raising and that received from tenants as rent and in its natural conditions without restriction The decision

now the council the board of directors are doing some excellent work on the streets and if they carry out their intentions as outlined to us Columbia will soon have the best streets of any town in the State whose population does not reach 2000 At present they are grading the street north of the Burksville street putting in stone culvets and as soon as this work is done a heavy coat of gravel will be placed thereon This particular part of the work Is under the supervision of Mr R F Paull who is not In tbe habit of doing botch jobs and we predict that the most substantial work will be done They will have the streets sur veyed and all parties whose fencing is in the street will be forced to pullback This action will give straight lines and will add both beauty and convenience to the public passsways Again there is a law tbat imposes a fine for dumping rubbish of any kind Into tbe streets or placing any obstruction in them This will be enforced and in our judgment it should be Our present council is composed of good business men meo who feel an interest in bettering the condition of this town and it is certain that they are making an honest persistent effort to do so They

showing of existing political conditions as bearing upon the Congressional campaign this year and the Presidential campaign two years hence is that of excep tional Democrotic harmony ou vi tal issues and of dissension amounting to serious disaffection in the ranks of the dominant party The fact of Democratic unity of sentiment is being revealed in par ty action marked by the most willing discipline and plainly ani mated by a singleness of purpose This truth was strikingly shown in the solid vote of the Democrat ic members of Congress in favor of the amendment to Cuban reci procity bill which amendment provided for the removal of the differential on refined sugars It is shown even more resolutely in the party alignment against thy entire trust system in the deter mination for a reasonable revision of the tariff in the spirit which demands a solution of the Philip pine problem along American lines The Democratic party is not now worrying itself over dis organizers or
