The prohibition sentiment is making
remarkable headway in the rural sec"

f and Cobb counties voted in favor of
prohibition by more than two to one.
It was also noticeable that in both
counties the colored voters went almost

Bogan Cash killed Richards without

because he is a Cash, but because
that is the law of the State. If he
killed Richards in self-defense he. is
not guilty of murder?even though he

may have done. Whether he is guilty
or not guilty is a question for the jury

tn the late leoa! tender
decision of the Supreme Court, the
Philadelphia Record remarks: *'From
this time forth it behooves the citizens
of the United States who have a stake
in the country to see to it that they
send no more scalawags to Congress.
- The decision of the Supreme Court
leaves every property owner and every ,
creditor afc the mercy of the majority
in Congress and the President. They
may at any time make pieces of paper
^ a legal tender for debts. The security
^ of constitutional restraint has been
rudely torn away, and the government
% is clothed with the power to do a thing
which is not consonant with justice
nor reconcilable with morality."
No other civilized country can show
so fine a navy as can the United States
if attention is confined to the officers
alone. The official personnel of the
navy now consists of 1,562 officers of
various grades, running from admiral
of the navy down to naval cadets.
This number is sufficient to meet the
wants of seventy vessels, but as the
country has only thirty-one ships in
commission the demand for officers is
not equal to the supply. Were they
all attached to the ships now in commission
there would be fifty officers
for each vessel, or one officer to every
five seamen. The fighting capacity of
such a force can hardly be estimated
with any degree of accuracy, but it
will be safe to say that the naval establishment
of no other nation could make
anything like the same showing.
The report of the Senate committee
which was appointed to arrange terms
with the Sioux Indians of Dakota for
a cession of a part of their reservation
is not conclnsive and may give rise to
complications. The facts are easily
given: The Sioux are possessed of
about thirty thousand square miles in
the southwestern part of Dakota. A
railroad had obtained the right of way
i through this reservation, but declined
to build Hiiless it was sure that the
territory on either side would soon be
thrown open to settlement. Hence
the agitation which has been pending
so long. The government began
r?A<mti*iHoiis for a cession of more than
one-half of the reservation, but the
forms required by a treaty made with
the Indians in 18G8 had not been properly
fulfilled, three-fourths of the male
members of the tribe not having signed
the agreement to yield the land. There
were reports of fraud, and it was said
that in order to make up the necessary
number 3*oung children were induced

a committee of investigation was appointed,
and this committee has jnst
reported that new negotiations most
be made with the Indians. It is now
proposed to take about ten millions
acres, paying for them in' cattle, and
also providing a fund for the Indians
out of the sales of this lard; but the
requirements of the treaty of 1868 must
first be complied with. It is stated
with very good show of reason that it
will not be possible to obtain the necessary
signatures, so that it is very
likely that the Indians will retain the
reservation intact. It is inevitable
that the Indian reservations should be
encroached upon by the march of
civilization, and the helplessness of
the tribes throws a responsibility upon
the government 01 maKing suitauie

AX EARLY CA3EPAIGX" LIE.
A few days ago a special from "Washington
to the Chicago Tribune stated
that one of the Republican Senators
who was a member of the Copiah investigating
committee which sat in
New Orleans, declared that at one of
the balls given during the Mardi Gras
festivities Jefferson Davis with his
danghter, the daughter of General Lee,
General Longstreet and other noted
Confederate Genrals, sat- in a box
which was draped with Confederate
flags; that a floral sword decorated
with Confederate colors, and addressed
"To the President," was presented to
! the occupants of the box and was acI
The Senator whn fnrmshfid
| this remarkable information said it did
j not look very ranch like ^Reconstruction
j to him, but thought that in some other
countries it would be called "treason."
The Kew Orleans Times-Democrat
tears this lying dispatch to pieces thus:
We doubt if there be a single truthful
sentence in this whole telegram.
It is true that the daughters of General
Lee were there, but not that the
daughterof General Longstreet was
with them. It is also true that the
box was draped, but not true that it
was draped with Confederate flags. It
is true that Mr. Jefferson Davis was in
the bor, but it was also true that Admiral
Cooper, of the United States

with him. It is true that a floral sword
was presented, but It is not true that
it was presented to Mr. Davis. It is
true that the sword bore a legend, but
utterly and absurdly false that the
legend read: "To the President." The
simple truth is that the presentation
was nothing more than a tribute of respect
and affection from General Lee's
soldiers to General Lee's daughters. It
bore the inscription "The - Sword of
Lee," and possessed no earthly significance
beyond that which appeared
upon the surface. It was designed to
tell the orphaned daughters of a brave

comrades held bis memory in love and
reverence. The human being who
could misunderstand or misrepresent a
demonstration so innocent and so
beautiful must be base indeed, and we
do not envy Senators Cameron, Hoar
and Fryc, among whom the odium
seems to be distributed. We believe
all three of -these patriots and gentlemen
were invited to the ball, and,
therefore, the one who gave the alleged
information had the opportunity, at
least, of knowing that it was utterly
and unqualifiedly false both in substance
As the Charlotte Observer pointedly
puts it, "the era of lying has begnn
now", and in the course of the approaching
campaign we may expect
many such stories as that maliciously
tola of the New Orleans people. The
Radicals have about exhausted their
supply of campaign thunder, and must
needs"set about the task of laying in a'
new stock. s
A correspondent of a Chicago journal
argues that the race is retrograding
intellectually. He asks: _ " *
Who is there in England to take the
place of Gladstone? Who. is there
now in America to tike the places of
Webster, Clay, Calhoun, Benton, Sumner,
Seward and Garfield? And, as
1 regards oratory, who that has spent a
, winter in Washington of late years has
not been humiliated by the paucity and
the weakness of the oratorical achieve^
tiicnts in Congress, as compared with
former years? ' ,
The position of the observing correspondent
is doubtless a popular one
nowadays, but it is no proof that it is
a correct one, all the same. The names
of our bygone dead make up a list of
eminent statesmen and orators, and it
is not our purpose to detract anything
from the fame of these great and good
men. But has it never occurred to
this correspondent and to the thousands
of others who indulge in the
same gloomy reflections, that "distance
lends enchantment" here as elsewhere,
and that Webster, Way, Calhoun
and the hosts of others being
dead and buried, their virtues alone
are remembered, while their shortcomings
are forgotten? Weare not of
that number who entertain the conviction
that the human race is retrograding
intellectually, but on the
contrary there is every evidence that
we are individually and collectively
moving forward along- the highway of
intellectual progress more rapidly than
ever before in the history of the world.
The materia! and indnstrial developments
of the present century, the
progress iu the arts, the sciences and
literature, and the general educational
elevation of the races thronghout the
civilized portions of the globe will
stand as the monumental evidences of
the work and achievements of our day
Nor has all yet been accomplished.
The same life, glow and energy permeate
the intellectuality of to-day, as
those which made possible the wonders
and triomphs of:the first quarter of
the present era. 'C. And the developments
of the next; twenty-five years
nmy dsftarfiand eclipse the recorded
yietorits of:ali (be'j>&st, and who,
among all the careful and thoughtful
readers of the current events of the
day, will say that it is unlikely ? And
in statecraft and in the fields- of oratory,
are we retrograding? We cannot
thirtfc so. - w* -. . . . -
Doubtless political and sectional
prejudices and our natural reverence
for the memories of the dead will war
against an earnest advocacy of; the
merits of the living; but after all can
it be shown that Conkliug, Blaine.
Lamar, Edmnnds and Bayard will not
compare favorably in point of intel-.
lectual. force and oratorical ability
with Webster, Clay, Calhoun, Benton
I and others? -I
Subject their comparative merits xto '
whatever test the wisest and most
astute of critics may select, and the
results may be surprising to that class
of people who rest their hopes ahd *
confidence upon the dead and not upon
the living. Conkling, Field, O'Connor
and Campbell at the bar of the
Supreme Court; Bayard, Edmunds, .
Sherman and Lamar in the legislative halls
of the nation; Blaine, Ligersoll,
Voorhees and Vest before assemblages''
of the people, will challenge comparison
with the intellectual merits of any
of the. ages past, the Washington correspondent
of the Chicago journal to
the contrary not withstanding. " All
these lamentations about retrogression
in morals, religion, intellect aiid pontics,
are meaningless and nonsensical,

What a Fairfield Man Saw, Heard, Felt and
Thought on a Visit There.
Messi's. Editors: Having- heard
much that was good, bad and indifferent
about the Pelican State, it occurred
to the writer that a trip to the banks-_
;0f the Mississippi would not bedevoid
of pleasure, although it might not
prove a very profitable venture.' However,
he. decided to go, and with the
fate of the hesitating man well in
mind, he determined uot to stand upon
the order of his going," but to go at .
once. He carried out his resolution,

give up trying to get to Heaven, for it
would certainly not suit your taste.
Now von must not think that I am in
! love with the country and am ready to
: start an exodus to a new Canaan, for
while I think that Louisiana is a good
place to-visit it is a bad place to Jive in.
The soil of the country is rich
and productive (this; -yon _know_without
ray telling), and I.have heard
some yarns about its productiveness
that would make yon think it a deal
richer than it is, but it is as bad fo
repeat a lie as to tell one, so I refrain.
One cannot get more than a general
idea of the appearance of a countiy
from a car window. My impression
; of the country between Mobile and
| New Orleans is of a low, swampy and
; level sarface. In the distance one
sees long lines of trees, giving indica!
tions of a vast forest beyond. This
j particular section is devoted to stock
'raising with here and there feeble
; attempts*at cultivation of the soil." As
yon approach New Orleans habitations
! thicken and the farms increase in size.
Bay St. Louis is a summer and winter

In winter it is thronged withNorthern

arms of the Gulf that run in beI

As the train passes over the frail fres
ties which are uncovered, so that you
may fully appreciate their frailty, you

holiday attire during my visit, as the i
carnival was near at hand. Canal h
Efiwt. is f nrinrfnal street'ofthe 1
city. It is a broad street with wide j'
pavements and bounded on both'sitfes I:
by handsome stores. The New OrH1
leans merchants believe in showing
off their goods. The show windows''
were filled with the handsomest and
brightest goods^all tastefnlly arranged.
The stores seemed ten be: doing .a good
business, the streets were filled with
handsomely- dressed ladies, fine; carriages
and horses dashed-inp and down
the street.and every ;*>ne.8eemed intent
upon enjeiyipg themselves. < "
The city is very irregularly bnilt,
seeminsrlv without any mathematical
design. All the street car lines run
into Canal street, so one runs no risk
of .losing himself in the city. There
are many, beautilal residences and
handsome buildings. Among the most
noticeable of the latter are the Cus-~
torn Honse, the Grande Opera House,
the. St. Charles Hotel, the Presbyterian
church, and the Church of. the
Jesnits. At the foot of Canal' street is
a large, open space, generally spoken
of as the Levee, where the cotton,
snffftr and molasses are landed from the
steamboats. This is near the business
portion of town. Iu this immediate
vicinity von find all the wholesale
houses", commission merchants and
men engaged in shipping/etc.
Owing to the peculiar nature of the
soil it is impossible to bury the dead
below the surface of the earth. A
hole three or four feet in depth soon
fills with water, therefore all who die
rest on the surface of'the earth. This
fives'a pectiliarly^ striking effect to the
cemeteries around J\ew^ fcvteans, 01
which there'are several vere^beautifnl
ones. The* Meteaire is one~:of the
prettiest. 'It is laid off in drives and
walks bordered Ijy trees and .beautiful
Sowers.* Costly vaults, designed after
temples and mosques, contain the
bodies of those who have died, and at
a first glance one is strongly impressed
with the" idea of a; veritable "city ol
the dead". " .
Well, Messrs. Editors, I will not
impose further ou good nature at present,
but at ;somc future time I may
have something mOre to say about nay

In 1784, the year when the Methodist
Church was organized in Baltimore,
when Coke and Asbury were
acknowledged and set apart as Superintendents,
or Bishops, , there were
only 14,688 members, 83 preachers, 64
church-buildings, no missionaries, and
no institution of learning within the
bounds of the denomination. But

It may be interesting to our readers
to recount what American Methodism "
has hitherto accomplished ori her Centenary
occasion.A We "first revert to
the Centennial of 1889: As Hie " first
Methodist Society was formed in London
in the montlT of November, 1739,
so 1889 "became properly the one hundredth
year of Methodism. It was
accordingly celebrated in Europe and
America. During that Centenary year
with a membership of 746,216 members,
including" colored members and
Indians, the Methodist Church in
America raised $600,000 for Missions, 1
education purposes, and for the support
of die wornout preachers, and the
widows, children, and orphans, of
preahers. The westeyan Methodists .
of Great Britain raised over one million
dollars for similar objects. :
The next Methodist Centennial event
was in 1866. It was in commemoration
of the" first Methodist preaching
services held in this country in 1766,
and was celebrated by the* Methodist
Epscopal Church in 1866* Education
and Church Extension were the
great objects of their benevolence, and
52,000,000 was suggested as the amount
to be raised. The resnlt was a magnificent
one, the thank-offerings
amounting to $8,70?,468 39, or more
than four times the amount proposed
at the outset
The successful celebration of these .
two former Centenary events should
certainly encourage . our Southern
Methodist friends to the accomplishment
of the noble deeds they have essayed.
Such. a past ought to be an
Able and competent conqjmittees

A Scandal Ended.?Conductor John
II. Foulk, of the Columbia and Greenville
Railroad, was arrested at Greenville
last Monday charged with abducting
a fifteen-year-old girl named
Renah Johniton, daughter of R. D.
Johnston, of Williamston. She pur
chased a ticket for Greenville, was
taken by the conductor on the arrival
of the train to the Mansion House,
where, at her request, he registered
her name as Miss Delere Brewer,
Grove Station. She was assigned to a
room, had snpper, and after snppei
was escorted to the opera by the conductor,
and after the opera returned
to the hotel, remaining that.night, and
leaving on the return train with the
/inndnpfnr riprf. mnrninor. Her DarcutS
knew nothing of all this, supposing
that she had gone to spend the night
with a lady friend. When her departure
was discovered the police were
notified and the above facts learned,
resulting in the arrest. Conductor
Foulk is a married man with two
children, and asserts that there was no
improper conduct, he simply taking
the youug.girl to the hotel and opera
at her request. The girl went to Au- '
gusta, Ga., but soon returned to
Greenville. Upon a thorough investigation
it was ascertained that Captain
