5 jury of Sumter connty, at the recent

1 Grave rumors prevail in the county
- as to the treatment of patients at the
: State lunatic asylnm at Colombia. The
. grand jury have endeavored to make
' iuquirv into the matter, but have failed
' to secure any evidence of any charac
ter. It is dne to the people of the
; county who are taxed for the support
( of the iastitntion, and whose relatives
and friends are providentially domiciled
in its walls, that they should

the General Assembly to make dne inquiry
into the management of the institution,
as far as the patients from
' Sumter county are concerned.
? These are indeed grave charges, and
the matter should be most thoroughly
investigated. There is no greater
crime against humanity than the maltreatment
of the insane, and if there
j is any such misconduct in the management
of our State asylum, it should be
promptly and severely checked. At
all events, the charges should be thor- '
oughly investigated. We feel sure
that the present Board of Regents will
not tolerate any such conduct as the
Sumter jury mcution, and it will be
necessary only to bring tha facts to
their attention in order to have them
'act promptly and vigorously.
Of late it has become a matter of
some controversy whether or not Mr.
Blaine, while speaker of the National
House of Representatives, offered to
sell his right to the appointment of an
importaut committee for a money consideration*
If he did, then it is the
most damuable evidence of the fact
that Blaine is a very wicked and cor
I rapt man, aud that he sought to prosj
titute a high aud important public ;
j office for private uses and private gain.
; ... .
Now, what is the proof? It is alleged |
that one J. F. Jov, a railroad kin? of!
" . , I
the northwest, was very mncn nuerterested
in a piece of legislation, pending
in Congress while James G. Blaine
was Speaker of the Honse?that an
important committee to sit npon the
matter was to be appointed by the
Speaker. As the- interviews between
Messrs. Blaine and Joy were between
prominent Republicans, and owing to
fhp additional fact that Mr. Joy has
since that time become a very warm
friend of Blaine, sufficiently so to place
him in nomination iu the Chicago
Convention of 1880, it could not be expected
that Joy would give evidence
against tho Republican nominee for
the Presidency. But Mr. Beecher
come.s to the rescue and narrates for
the benefit and enlightenment of voters
? ~ ^ H- - ?i- ?tv.-,;
Air. joys account 01 uie wuwb uixo.il

city in the fall of 1877. Mr. Beecher
Towards the close of the dinner,
September 29, 1877, political matters
were introduced, and among other
things Blaine's failure to receive the
nomination that went to Hayes. Mr.
Joy spoke with contemptuous severity
of Mr. B?aine, and gave this statement:
"When a difficulty occurred in regard
to certain lands in the Sonthwest, in
which I was interested, a\conujgittfl
VV iW auvuU tv/ i/v t ^ . -TQ
^ietro^al^yMrnolaine to have one
sound lawyer appointed on that committee
; I did not care of which party.
I simply wanted a sound lawyer. In
a day or two Mr. Blaine sent me word
through a friend that he had certain
depreciated bonds, and if I wenld enable
him to place them at par I could
have my committee as I wanted it. I
canuot forget with what cutting scorn
Mr. Joy leaned back in his chair and
said: "That is the man Blaiuc is," and
he added: "I refused the offer, and, as
tlie courts soon seiueu ine muuer,
committee was appointed. At that
time I knew nothing- of the bonds in
qnestion nor of the bonds alluded'to;
but I did understand fully Mr. Joy's
opinion of James G. Blaine. What
changed Mr. Joy's action and led him
to nominate Mr! Blaine at the- Chicago
Convention of 1880 I do not know. It
can probably be found out by inquiring
of the editors of certain daily newspapers
who hardly found language
bitter enough for years to inveigh
against Mr. Blaine, and who now can
not iind language enough to pour con
tempt upon tue men wno ao noi approve
of placing Mr. Blaine .in the
Presidential chair. I shall not prolong
this letter by narrating Mr. BIaine'1

Garfield canvass, at his own request,
in the Fifth Avenue Hotel. 1 cai:

HOT A CANDIDATE.
Messrs. Editors: At the solicitation
of my brother John C/Feaster (whc
sees in my name, as nominee of the
Independents for Congress in this the
Fourth District, a stigma or reproac?1
upon the honored names of our honored
fathers, and as that name is the
one I honor more than all others, and
as I wish to avoid even the appearance
of dishonoring it, or to- bring evil reproach
upon it), I wish to say once for
all that I am not a candidate for "Congress,
r.or will I serve if elected.
At the same time I cannot see why
the Independent Republicans of the
North are such fine fellows, and arc
landed to the skies as the better element
of the Republican party by
Hampton and others, and the Independents
of the South are such low characters?worse
even than Radicals.
I am a South Carolinian, and shall
ever be true to her interests as I understand
them. At the same time I ain a
citizen of the United States, to which
government I have since the war sworn
allegiance and to obev and execnte her
laws- Docs a man's oath mean anything?
Or is it binding when he considers
it to his interests to observe it?
Will you, Messrs. Editors, answer
these queries as coming from one who
is most anxiously and earnestly seeking
the right path? And if yonr answers
should be in the affirmative. I
must honestly say I have found it not.
To those of my friends in Fairfield
who have chosen to adversely criticise
my course, and have thought proper
to charge me with being untrue to my
native State, I will say, be not hasty
in judgment for such "judgment as ye
mete to others snch judgment snail be
meted to yon"; but to those who have
believed me true and being bold enough
to express it, I will raise my hat and
say to them, thank you, my friends,
for your trust and confidence; and in
the language of a prominent citizen of
the State a few years since, "May ray
right arm become palsied and withered"
before I become untrue to or
abuse the trust you hare reposed in
me. I again ask yon to answer the
queries I have propounded.
I am now, as I ever have been, an
Independent Jeffersonian Democrat,
or Republican, as he termed it at the
time he organized the party.

had failed, we got Brewer's Lung Restorer

fed curs of the country were consuming
it. My remedy was-the free use
of the shot-gun, which gave me temporary
relief; but being surprised at

1 Early in November, 1881, wliile sewing
i on the machine, my wife was taken with a
severe pain in her side, which was soon
followed hv hp.morrha;res from her lungs
' and a severe cough. Fever commenced,
' she could neither eat nor sleep, and in a few
j . weeks she was reduced to a living skeleton.
. T - attending physician told me that he
! rnought one of her lungs was entirely gone,
i" She could not retain the most delicate
cian, to call Dr. Holloway in consultation.
' They made a final- examination of the
patient and pronounced the case hopeless,
i Dr. Holioway then suggested the Brewer's
. Lung Restorer as a last resort I sent for a
[ bottle and gave her a dose. I found that
? she could retain it on her stomach and
after ahnnt thf> third flnsp T h??f?an to
notice some improvement in her condition.
I continued the medicine regularly; and by
the time she had taken two bottles, she
was able to walk about the house. She is
now in better health than she has enjoyed
for several years. I believe that Lung
, Restorer saved her life. We have a family
of six children, some of them grown."
