It tit uo wonder that a good many i.r th decent people of Mouth Caro ('it are suffering with nausea on recount of tho primary election -teui In etlect In that State. Mr. A neurit Kohn, the Columbia corn. p..ad.Qt of the Charleston Xows & Connor, who toured about half tbe State with the candidates In the re rent campaign, writes thus to his p;tper : There can be no question about t bo disgust and dissatisfaction with the primary system as at present in effect in thi State. There will bave to be radical changes In the nybtem or It will go to piece. If it is kept up as at present it ought to tro into disrepute and oblivion. It h a humbug and a farce to have ciiodidates go around the State abusing each other and not discus sing issuex. During the last cam paign the Hpoakers consumed seven long and weary hours, day after day, and there was but one Bong, self or liquor. Tne campaigns have bi-vn thought to be Instituted for a discussion of political and Indus trial issues, and not for abuse and the discussion of ooe's self. Day af ter day the candidates generally made the same speeches, many of them did not so much as change the dotting of an "i," or the crossing of a "t," and yet it is urged that this is a campaign of education. It is not so." It is observed that this view of the question has a good deal of sup port In the press of South Caroli na. The Hock Hill Herald, for In stance, copying and commenting upon tho above question, says: 'The primary election Is sure to go If the Ignorant, irresponsible vo ter cannot be eliminated. It Is well known in this county that In the recent election a number of men had their Humes put on the club roll- bd voted in the primary wbo were uot even citizens ui iu coun tv. and some of them were only re cently from North Carolina. They were voted like bo many sheep. It voters who really have an interest In the affairs of the county or State ate to submit to the results of the primary, that election must be pu rified. There must be some pro tection thrown around the ballot. elrto the party election will degen erate even more into a miserable, filthy scramble In which ociy de signing politicians will enter. No self respecting man cares to have himself plastered by slime thrown at him by mangy place-hunters, and have to bo a competitor and control votes by appealing to the ignorance and prejudice or tne vot ers. Until a change. comes unless the primary is protected against the unworthy voter we may not hope for betttr. It will continue to be, as The News "and Courier's correspondent says It Is now, that "substantial, good business men, .uh nrnrht to be elected to offi ces of this State, are not coming out." All this has particular Interest In North Carolina at this time when a primary for the choice of a United btates Senator Is on band. It Is to be hoped that conditions here will not drop to the South Carolina lev el, but the primary here Is but an experiment and we shall see what we shall see. It was tinkered with in a small way four years ago, with i.trnni rnnapn nonces, and the UIIODVivud w "1 r outcome will be fortunate If in the train of the one now on hand, there are not left a lot of tarnished repu tations, strife and heart-burnings nri a disruDted party.

They all w.rk in the mines. Andrew Part isb also spoke in the Slavonic and Lithuoian tongues. Nearly every mta in the crowd smoked Lis pip and occa sionally cheered. "At Nequehouoing a Slavonic ora tor with an un pronounced namej kept yelling to the crowd in tones that soun ded alike for some time. 1 got a young Slav to translate for me and he said the speaker had thundered out : "We musi strike, if we are men. JIf we are cows, we will work. Are you men or cows?" His bearers all yelled for strike, where upon the orator shouted back : "An swered like roaring bull." "Then tbe orator denounced weak backed men. Stay at home with the women and take in your cabbage and cut sauerkraut,' was the advice of a German striker who spoke for peace and against mob violence. I found that tbe foreign strikers were on the war path against Slavs and Huns from the strike districts, who were willing to work where operations were still car ried on. such men were denounced as dogs, and they took up tbe cry, Death to the dogs! Let tbe women kill the dogs !" At other places the foreign or ators paid great attention to advising the Slavs to be careful what they said. One of the orators thus advised his dArkskinned hearers: 'Keep your tongues between your teeth. Don't talk. What you may say a secret detective will hear, and he may make jou pay dear for it when all this is over. It may cost you your job or your liberty.' " These lavs are very suspicious, es pecially of those not of their national ity. They live in clusters and are very clannish. TKey never become natural ized, but drift about as the gypsies, from place to place, wherever they tan get laboring work to do. The Poiand ers, however, are more substantial. So are the Italians and some Huns. In a short time, if the strike is not settled, thoucands of these Slavs will go to the soft coal regions for employment. If there is any violence these untutored men will be shoved to the front, as they are verv excitable when aroused and under the influence of 'polenki,' a mix ture of beer, alcohol and rum., 'ihey are bard workers and do a lair day's work in the mines at from 1 to $1.20 a day.

The striking miners constantly gala accessions to their ranks a the strike progresses, and the oper ators moro clearly see their lnabll lty to operate the mines by the aid of non-union men. It has been re potted that negro labor from thi South was to be Imported to fill the strikers' places, but this turns out to be false. . The preeence ol the negro in the mines would unit thejentlre white foreign and native population in a more determines effort to win, and result In serious Injury, pernaps death, to the ne groes. Thri operators dare not bring negroes Into the coal region. The attempt to bring bituminous coal into the hard coal markets has also failed, the soft coal miners refusing to mine coal for sucn purpose. Tne presidents of tho groat coal ruads met in New York Thursday, and It is believed that they bave agreed to accept a ten per cent ad vauee in wages. The coal operator of the Wyoming and Lackawanna Valleys also met at Wllkeebarrv last week and discussed the matter of raising the wages of the miner. at least 10 per cent. There is a strong feeling against recognizing the Miners' Union; but President Mitchell, of that organization, sayt ne will not stand in the way of the men accepting an advance, and wi uld have no objection to thi operators dealing direct with the men.

The public schools are for all tbe peo ple, supported by all the peopie, and must serve all the people by giving in struction without any regard to denom inations or churches. 'the law provides for combining pub lic schools with private, but 1 do not thi jk tbis, in any sense, means denom inational or church schools. Therefore, my instruction to you as County Superintendent is thai you do not combine public schools with denoui inatioual schools 1 am aware that these church schools have well prepared teachers, but, not withstanding this, tbe primary object for which they are employed is to ben efit the church, and in every communi ty we find some parents who will not uiul ii- .it,l-rnTience uniei W""' we must not have any hindrance or objections to our public schools that ma v be easily avoided. We must have the united support of the people in tbe pub.ic school work if the work is ever to ue and to accomplish what it should. Yours truly, C. U Mssixs, Supt, Public Instruction.
