Gen. Wade Hampton has issued &
H - ' call
for the organization of National
Democratic Ltague Clubs.
Madaune ought to keep out the

she is not going on the stage, and we

more reasonable aud caadid
followers of Governor Tillman admit

tfor the Darlington tragedy. The
coroner's verdict says so, and a fair

will say so.
& The Bishop of Chester, England,
has written to Governor Tillman for
fan official report, or rather an authentic
account of the riot at Darlington.
We hope he will send hias the acconnt

in Congress. He will miss an essential

matter what may be the powers of a
man, he cannot gain the attention of
an audience and enlist their interest
unless his audience have respect for
him. Possibly some other members of
?' - Congress are no better than he, still
they hare not been exposed.
Governor Cask, of North Carolina,
p- has appointed ex-Governor Jarvis to
fill the vacancy made in the United
States Senate by the death of Senator
Yance. Senator Jarvis is a man of a
j|. very honorable record both public

of Cleveland, having been appointed

If ;vbat the newspapers in Georgia

General Evan3 will be the next Governor
of that State. We have read a

too much time in priising himself
His whole effort seems to be to convince

It is said that the House of Representatives
have a rule providing for
the fining of Congressmen not attending
its proceeding. It is hoped that
the rule will now be rigidly enforced.
If the Senate has not such a rule, it
ought to adopt one and execate it.
It would be interesting to know how
!' often Senator Irby would have been
<v * fined had such a rule been enforced.

According to the Greenville New
the military court at DarliDgton was
composed as follows:
' Capt. J. A. Mooney, Butler Guards,

- Sergeant J. C. Cooper, Tillmanite,
Corporal A. D. Milster, Hampton
ry ' Private F. II. Dantzler, Fort Motte
Br Three of the five are Tillmanites.
We are glad the House Committee
has had the boldness to adopt a rule,
J whereby a quorum can be obtained,
g It is a, disgrace that public business
can be blocked simply by members of
? the House of Representatives refusing
to attend. One of the greatest faults
of the party has been its timidity and
m ultra-conservatism. The new rule is
unlike the arbitrary rule of Speaker
V ^ Reed. It will be remembered that he

silrer and Western problems is the secession
of Texas. Oklahoma, Nebraska,
Colorado and other Western States
from the Union. There can be no
f doubt that the United States is to?
large, and the people of the different
States too heterogeneous, but the experiment
of seceding from the Union
has been attempted, and it is hardly
possible that it will succeed. It is
right in principle, bat not expedient.
It would be quite interesting to know
bow the Yankee soldiers living in
those States feel about the proposed
secession. We think that the United
States conld very easily de without

and as far as we are concerned, we

If we could get rid of many of the

Chairman Braxton, of the Republican
party, thinks that it is an opportune
time for that party to organize in
this State, ani he is issuing circulars
trying to get tbe Republicans to perfect
an organization in every county.
He *ays: "The hostility and disintegration
among the Democrats affords a
chance for Republicans to exercise
their political rights." There can be
no doubt that if the bitterness and
strife among the white voters of this
State continue much longer the Republicans
will revive and our people
will have nobody to blame but themselves.
A large part of the white
people of this State have been politically
ostracised for the past four years,

they will fight the old party with as
much zeal as they did eighteen years
ago. We hope that the talk of reviving
the Republican party will bring
me of our people to their senses,
but we liare been so often disappointed
that we have almost despaired of
ever seeing again peace and unity
among the white people of this State.
U nconst it u t ion al.
The Supreme Court hied a decision
in the dispensary cases la3t Thursday
morning declaring the act under which
the State has gone into the liquor
business unconstitutional. This decision
affirms the elaborate opinion
delivered by Judge Hudson on the
circuit at Darlington and repeated
subsequently at Columbia. Judge
Hudson's opinion was very elaborate
and generally regarded as an able ex
position 01 me ceusLiiuuuuui ugui?
violated by the act. It was widely
quoted and elicited favorable comment
in other States. It will be remembered
that he held that so much of the
act as authorized the State to engage
in the traffic ef liquor, a*d thus create
a monopoly for itself for revenue,
pure and simply, was in conflict with
the declaration of rights contained in
the constitution, of this State. Not
only was it in violation of the bill of
rights as expressed and embodied ia
our State constitution, but it violated
Ills CUII&UIUU.U11 VI LUC UU11CU giaiw.
He held that the prohibition feature
of the bill vras constitutional. There
can be no doubt of the constitutionality
of absolute prohibition. That question
has long been settled by the
United States Supreme Court, but it
has never been held by any court that
a State can deny its citizens the right
to engage in any busiuess in order that
it may itself create a monopoly.
It must be distinctly remembered
that this is not a victory for the whiikey
men. It is simply the triumph of
sound constitutional principles, it is
against the genius of a Republican
form of goverment for a State to engage
in the sale of liquor for traffic.
If it can go into the liquor trade, why
can it not go into the drug business,
or the tobacco trade, or manufacture
and sell explosives?
The opinion covers 30,000 words,
and it is impossible to form a satisfactory
opinion as to whit will be the
result without carefully considering
exactly what the court has decided.
We presume, however, tnat it nns
been held that the prohibitory feature
of the act is constitutional; and that
being so, we would have prohibitiou
out and out. Because one part of a
statute is unconstitutional, it does not
fellow that the whole falls with it.
It is clear thoigh the sale of liquor by
the dispensaries now is an unlawful
We must heartily commend the
Governor for his very prompt obedience
to the authority of law. The

not wait, but closed the dispensaries.
"We highly approve of his course, and
as it is so seldom that we have an
opportunity to sanction what our
Governor does, wo hasten to do so in
If one will consider the opinion of
Chief Justice Mclver carefully, he will
readily see that the Stat? cannot appeal
to th? Supreme Court of the
United States. While it is true that
.Tndo-p "srndsrm held the Act in conflict
with the Federal constitution as well
as the State constitution, yet the Supreme
Court of this State bases its decision
upon the ground that the Act
was in violation of the State Constitution.
If a irrU of error wa3 taken out,
the Supreme Court of the United
States would simply say, according to
the well known practice, you must
follow your own court's interpretation
of your State Constitution, and that
court having held the Dispensary Act
uncon*titutional, the judgment could
not be reversed. The judgment would
staud whether the law was in violation
ef the United States Constitution
A decision cited by Chief Justice,
not only practically decides the Dispensary
cases, but it tends to refute
the charge that Judges Mclver and
AICUrOTfUll Wci c liiiiu^uvcu kjj jl/ui u^mu
motives. The case of Mauldin vs.
Greenrilie, 33 S. C., 1, was heard and
decided by ihe Supreme Court before
the Dispensary uystem was even mentioned
in this State. The question involved
in this case was whether the
city council of Greenville could purchase
and hold an electric light plant,
and furnish lights to the people at
proper charges. It was held that the
city could not provide individuals in
their residences and places of business
with lights. Justice McGowan said in
| delivering tho opinion: "As we un- :
derstand it all the powers given to the
cih council were for the sale and exclusive
purpose of government, not to
ier into private business of any kind
| outside of the ss?pe of the city govern
mcnt." The conclusion seems irresistible
that if a city government, a
corporation with very broad powers,
cannot engage in a business surely a
The prohibitionists should be satisfied
now. We hire absolute prohibi- f
tion in the State, and we believe the
Act of 1893 provides a punishment for
the violation thereof.
We always refrain from criticising
a Judge on the bench, but Justice
Pope would have d<*ne himself more
credit, if he had contented himself
with a discusiion of the law, and said
nothing about politics. His reference
to the 10,000 majority was wholly out
of place as well as other things in his
IS IT A BIG BLUFFf
Dispensaries Closed and Constables Discharged.
It h&s proven a much easier task for
the authorities to close the dispensaries
than to ?pen them. The liquor
! traffic in the State went through an
! entire revolutionary period in a day,
JUSl as II U1U UILUUOL uru J o .
By the simple order of the State board
ct control every Stale bar room in the
State was closed, and yesterday afternoon
the consumers of liquor either
patronized 'blind tigers" or did without
it. It was an exceedingly unique
and altogether unprecedented condition
of affairs. For once in the history
of the Statu, it has passed through a
prohibition day, at least so far as the
public has a right to believe. Where
and when the whule thing will end no
one seems to know and no one care* to J,
prophesy. The administration has put
on a Mephistophilean an* of obedience
to the mandates of the Supreme Court. ,
The liquor men da not wish to aci too i
precipitately, for fear of injuring their ]
cause. The lawyers are keeping quiet ,
and watching the opposing counsel and
in the meanwhile the general public is
trying to solve th8 problem of where
tbey "are at," wita regard to the sale i
of liquor. The Supreme Coirt has ,
decided tlut liquor cau be sold, but i
the question now is, how is it to be i
Well, what was done yesterday? The j
dispensaries, big and little, were offi- <
daily ordered closed. The constabu- j
lary were either paid oil or given ]
checks and all dismissed. The State <
Treasurer declined to pay checks on <
accoant cf the dispensary. The dis- i
pensary employes are hunting other
jobs. The attorneys !or the State are i
consulting to see if tbey can do any- ]
tiling to save their case. Governor j
Tillman continues to keep Us cards to, 1
h:mself. No ?ue has yet been able to 1
explain exactly what the court meant
with reference to the license question 1
and the liquor men are reserving
When the orders to close the dispensaries
went out about noon there were
quite a number of prospective pur- ,
chasers in the establishment and they (
could not exactly understand the meaning
of such sudden closing. i
There is no question that Governor J
Tillman hold - the solution of the mat- ,
ter, either by calling au extra session <
of the Legislature or allowing things |
to jog along. Governor Tillman had a (
rush of visitors a I day long and when i

"What about the dispensary situa

"What are you going to do with the ]
liquor on hand if there i3 no dispen- ]
sary, Governor?'' (
''Oh, well, that is a matter for the
Legislature to decide," he replied.
"Are you going to call an extra ses- i

All day there were reports about the
State House that the State would make 3
a m?ve for a reheating. The fact of
the master is, the State is not going to
?ire uc the fizht unless it stes no way

submission is the only thing to do. J
Soon after the ariival of Governor 1
Tillman at the State House the board \
of control held an informal meeting i
and orders were issued to all dispen- <
saries, thi oagh Commissioner Tr^xler, 1
to close business. It was expected all 1
day that another meeting would be <
held, at which formal resolutions 1
would be passed defining the attitude J

are: If the liquor traffic is to be resumed

of an excited community on se
vere tension. Prudent counsels held
our people back from interference.
And these selected officers of a most
difficult and delicate service, allowed
themselves to be drawn into a personal
qua-rel between two youth*,

truth of the said affair will never

was suspected that he was not dead.
Men, s?bbing with grief over the form
of their friend, Frank Norment, were
threatening to shoot this man who
killed him. Norment's father and
others restrained them with difficulty,
and the man was removed from the
riew of the crowd.
Such was the bitter feeling of many
towards this man that at the request
of the sheriff I rode with him under
the protection of a guard of soldiers
to the jail. And after he was safely
lodged in jail, I exerted myself personally
along with some others to prevent
the lynching that seemed to be
imminent, takinsr a message to men
most determineS upon the horrible
deed from their murdered friend's
mother and wife, begging them to do
no violence to him.
And now I submit, that when after
unusual exertions of this sort had
been hardly enough to prevent the
lynching of McUlendon, the taunt,
'why didn't they lynch the man who
they claim originated the trouble and
whom they had in their power"?

had recovered its self-possession.
And it has ever since continued to be
normally quiet, but it is impossible to
express or adequately suggest the
deep, burning indignation of our people,
that this community has been
subjected to such an experience of
humuliation, miirepresenration, murder
and official wrath. The coming
of troops, welcomed by us; their commander's
declarations as to the lack
of necessity here for there presence;
the verdict of coroner's jury, and that
of the military council, supporting
our .contention that the catastrophe
was caused by the constables; the
final departure of troops, are all too
well known to be recited h?re.
Let me say, that the killing- of a
negro man on the 3rd by a stranger
here is regarded by our people with
Reserved indignation. It had no connection
with the affair of March 30th.

far distant Then mothars will consider the real

of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
