The Louisville Post hopes that Mr.
Cleveland will make his letter of acceptance
short, sharp and decisive.
? Logan's letter of acceptance has now
been pnblish.ed, and like Blaine he believes
in a high tariff, and says that
will be the dominant issne in the campaign.
Tae committee to notify Governor
Cleveland of his nomination is expected
to perform that dnty this week,

Some of Blaine's boomers trieil to
, get the business men of Bangor to give
their candidate a certificate of good
character, but several leading Republican
firms refused to si^n their names
to the document.
The Western papers, printed where
they love an "intense" American, are
beginning to ask this questiou: "If
Mr. Blaine is the red-eyed son of
Thunder and Mars that his friends say
he is, how did it happen that he failed
, . to hurl himself into the imminent deadly

Hoadly's law partner says
Cleveland will cany Ohio. He bases
' his confidence largely on the division

temperance question and on the aver:

views and spirited foreign
\ -"policy. " *

The only ground, it seems, taken
against Col. Coward by the Newberry
Obseirer, is bis failure to visit the
different counties. An examination of
the records of the Superintendent's
' office since 1876 must, we think, convince
the Observer that it must seek
higher evidence on which to condemn
the present Incumbent as au inefficient
officer. -* ?

. Charlotte Observer: Gen. Long
* street was one of the few Confederate
JSwr*"' " soldiers of any note who went over to
the Republican party after the war.
He has followed it ever since and rendered
it all the service he could. But
s-? now he steps down and out of the
office of United States marshal of tbe
northern district of Georgia on charges
of incompetency and carelessness. He
let his crooked deputies get away with
him. What a humiliating ending of a
once brilliant career.
The Abbeville Fress and Banner
charges Colonel Coward with having
"totally neglected" his duties, and
says further: "The State Superintendent
of Education, in oar opinion, has
done literally nothing -exccpt to draw
the salary, and to go to Washington
where he ex oosed his lack of in for ma
tion as to the schools." We think it inav
scarcely be said, that Colonel Coward
has "totally neglected" his duties, or
that 'he* has "done literally nothing"
bnt draw his salary aud make a trip to
Washington. In using such language
the Press and Banner shows one of
two things?an ignorance of the mean- j
ing of common English words, or a
deliberate purpose to do injustice. In
cither view the paper cannot be regarded
as a competent censor of public
f officials in bourn uaronna.
Secretary Teller, it is given out,
is to make speeches in the South in the
hope of bringing that section to a realization
of what it has already lost by
refusing to give its allegiance to the
Republicans and what it may gain by

Times says that this is the first visible
outward sign of the administration's
position In the coming campaign. Bnt
the conclusion shonld not be reached'
too rapidly that it is a movement in
favor of Blaine. On the surface it is,
but in reality it is a conspiracy to
augment the Democratic majority in
every Southern State into which Teller
may penetrate for the purpose of making.

Lieut. Greely's inborn plack is illustrated

Tiik Greenville JXeics has renewed
its onslaught upon the College, the
Citadel and the Columbia canal. The
great difficulty in the way of an accomplishment
of its desire to destroy two
excellent institutions of learning is
that ihc sentiment of the State is large
Iy in favor of their niaintenar.ee. Long
before the News shall succeed in closing
the Coliege and the Citadel, the
sentiment in their favor will have become
positively irresistible. So with
the Columbia canal. Whatever differences
of opinion may have existed as
to commencing the work, it would
now be simply throwing away money
to stop half way. This point is strong
Iy put in a recent able and manly
editorial in the Anderson Intelligencer.
The opposition to State aid to
higher education and to the canal is a
favorite Hobby with the Xeiosy but it
must needs find a new one now.
The country will congratulate itself,
as well as the courage and enterprise
of such men as Mr. Bennett and Mr.
Mackay, on the assured success of the
new Atlantic cabie. Teft years ago,
the cost of a cable dispatch to or from
London was one dollar a word, including
address and signature. Now
it is reduced one-half or more for business
cablegrams, with much greater
reduction to the press. The cost of
cable telegraphy has been the bar to
its general use, just as the cost of ordinary
telegraphy iong forbade its gen-,
eral employment; but the time is close
at hand when all important business
between the Old and the New World
will be transacted by cable, just as all
important business is now transacted
by telegraph throughout the Cnited
States. With strong and evidently
lasting competition with the Western
Union in telegraphy at home, as established
by the new consolidation on the
Baltimore and Ohio railway system,
and with new cable lines which can't

Mr. Blaine's letter of acceptance
has been given to the people through
the press, and it is receiving handling
without gloves. He has audacity
enougn to attnouietne "great material
progress of the United States" for the
past quarter of a century to the administrative
ability of the Republican
party. Even the increase of our population
is, he claims, solely due to
Republic-ens, and Democrats had 110
hand in the matter at all. The New
York Herald is scathing in its comments
upon this document. It says:
Then the Plumed Knight and the
Republican party took hold and accom=
it 1 i
pus>ueu luure 111 tweiiiy years man uau
beeu achieved in the preceding two
and a half centuries. In this short
period they increased the populationby
twenty millions and more than
trebled the value of the national
wealth. The agricultural development
was marvellous, the growth of commerce
prodigious, the spread of industry.amazing,"the
prosperity of the people
nuparalleled. The progress of
invention and discovery was not less
wonnerini, ana, 01 course, use ine
material growth of the country, was
due entirely to the "grand old party."
How the telegraph, the steam engine,
the cotton gin and other great inventions
were perfected before 1860 is a
profound mystery. Of course, some
things have occurred since the accession^
the Republican party that are
not in the nature of blessings. There
have been panics, hard times, epidemics,
disasters, corruption and woes
of everv sort. But for these and all
other evils the Democrats are responsible.
No o?e can ponder on these
things without wondering what a prodigious
nation the United States would
be to-day if the Republican party,,
with the tattooed man, had only come
upon the scene about the time that

party has accomplished in the way of
national progress in so short a time, it
is simply impossible to calculate what
it would have achieved in two hnndred
and fifty years.
And President Arthur has at last
called for General I^ongstreet's resignation.
It is said that he was charged
with carelessness and inefficiency i'the
discharge of his official duty, and
that Attorney-General Brewster demanded
his immediate removal. One
Brvant was the roan who suDDlanted
the Confederate chief. A correspondent
of a leading New York journal
General Longstreet taking his departure
from the marshal's office presents
a picture that is somewhat
pathetic. The old warrior is routed
by a political oppouent. To the last
he had faith that he would keep the
position, and he -might have done so

less fickle, (general Longstreet stated
several weeks ago that he was anxious
to spend the sere and yellow of his
life in retirement, but that he needed
the pay of his office for the education
of his children. Bat the fortunes of
others demanded his removal, and he
passes from this sphere of action to
give way to a more lively rival.
There are various reasons given for

charged that the duties of his office
have been managed iu a manner extremely
objectionable to the Department
of Justice. Various examiners
have reported recommending his re- j
maval, and it is said the Attorney-!
General demanded it. The Springer
Investigating Committee developed
damaging testimony against the General.
Many disallowances were made
in his accounts, som2 of his deputies
were convicted 01 rendering iaise returns
and a number of prisoners have
escaped under his management. In
addition is the fact that the General
did not have * his accounts to suit the
department in the custom house. It is
doubtless true that this had much to
do with the action of the President.
This is a sad fate to befall so brilliant
and distinguished a mau as General*Lougstreet,
but after all it is nothing
more than he deserves if the
charges preferred against him are
grounded on trr.th. If he had served
his country in peace with half the zeal
be did in war he would not have been
forsaken in his old age.
COLO\?L COWARD AS SUPEBLV
The Abbeville Press and Banner of
last week replies at some length to our
recent editorial comments upon the
strictures of the Temperance Worker
on Colonel Coward. Among other
thincrc onr eontemrsorarv savs:
"VY'e will be very nyich obliged to the |
Winnsboro News axd II era ed if it
wilLexplain to the public how any
school teacher can comply with these
the very first requirements of the law
prescribing the duties of State Superintendent
? ; * * * * * *
Colonel Coward may have spent a
few days in the year attending the
semi-annual meetings of the Board of
Examiners, bnt he certainly neglected
his official duty to "visit every county
in the State." How could he faithfully
discharge, the office of Superintendent
of Education while teaching school
nine months of the year?
The most conspicuous act of his
official career was that of his famous
journey to Washington to testify before
the Congressional Educational
Committee, where he proved conclusive!}',
to our mind at least, that his
knowledge of the public, schools and
the school system of South Carolina
rc-fli: nnnnn#] fi-? flip tick of ftirnishiner
the desirec. information.
Will somebody explain by what
right the Executive Committee contracted
with a public officer to excuse
him from the duties of his office for
nine months of the year?the very
nine months in which nearly all the
work of his office should be done?
By the reuomination of that officer,
did not thd Convention ratify an improper
trade of'the Executive Committee
by which the services of one of the
most important officers of the State
were lost for nine months in the year?
Oar article some weets ago upon
this subject contained these points:
(1) That there had been up to that time
no complaint against Colonel Coward
in the discharge of his official duty;
(2) That we were in the position to
judge of his work in our county, and
that the educational interests of the
State had gone forward not backward,
as asserted by the Worker; (3) That
he has performed these duties (having
enumerated them above) as well and
as faithfully as did Governor Thompson.
The official record of Colonel
Coward's work will compare favorably
with that of Governor Thompson, and
this is saying a good deal.
"We are now prepared to defend the
position we then took, and nothing
found in the criticism of .our contemporary
proves the contrary to be trne.
It is true perhaps as claimed elsewhere
in the article under review,
"that the superintendent has not, during
his official career, . visited any
county alone: the line of the Columbia
& Greenville Kailroad, although we
fhinb hie nffir.ial would
establish so ranch." Bat why all this
hue and cry against Colonel Coward, j
and why this demand for his declination
of the trust again committed to
him when he has been quite as
efficient as his Democratic predecessor
Is the present Superintendent to be
judged by a more rigorous code of
public ethics than others who have
occupied th# same important position?
We think not. Yet we venture the
UUil mai vvivugi vvnoiu uao
done his work as faithfully and has
visited as many counties as Governor
Thompson did, a.nd the latter was generally
regarded as an admirable Superintendent,
and upon his record in
that office he was elevated to the chief
magistracy ot' the State. Colonel Coward's
official report is not yet out, or
at least we haven't it at hand for referencp.
but in this connection it
would not be out of place to let the
public know just how many official
visits Governor Thompson made to the
different counties during liis terms of
office. In his official report for
1876-77 we find that he visited officially
seven counties only out" of the
thirty-two in the State; in 1876-78
he visited teu counties; in 1878-79,
nineteen; in his report for 1879-80 no
official visit? are mentioned at all, and
we have no official proof that be visited
any counties during' that time; in
1881>-82 he visited but eight counties.
Now, in the light of these facts, let our
complaining brethren of the press
await information as to what the present
Superintendent has done. If he
has done as well, and we believe he
has, it is but just and proper that if
the- well-done is to be awarded the one,
eanal credit should be <riven the other.
Now that wc have heard 'i-om the
editors, what will the teachers and
school officials have to say in the
premises? In spite of all that has
been said, has the proposition we controverted
in the outset been established,
to wit: That the public schools
have crone backwards nnder Colonel
? ? - o
Coward's Superintendeucy? We think
not. We have replied to everything
in the article of our contemporary we
esteem pertinent to the issue, and
until the question propounded above be
answered, we shall remain silent for a

"This, for instance," said Mr. W. D. 1
