Tie President's proclamation calls
for 125,000 volunteers to serve for two

General Lee's family.
Jehn Jacob Asior Mas offered to
raise and equip a battery of artillery
at an expense of $50,000.
The Spaaish fleet was still at Cape
Verde Islands oh Sunday, bat it was
rumored that it would move Monday.
Cape Verde belongs to Portugal, and
it is said :hat the United States have
notified the Government at Lisbon
that, under international law, the fleet
must be made to move or remain there
during ihe war. This position on the
part t( the United States arises out of
the faet that Portugal is neutral.
The Mangrove has left Key West to
cut tie cable between Cuba and Spain.
The United States Gevernment ha3
assumed absolute . supervision of all
cable messages sent from Key West t?
It is new no longer a question as to
whether the United States and Spain
will hare war, but it is a question
whether the war will last a few weeks
or a few months or even a year. Of
coarse, the plan of campaign can not
be made public, but it seems that two
views are entertained. One is to
blockade Havana, and eat off supplies
from that port. Starvation is as effective
to conquer as bullets. Another
plan is to land troops on the island of
Cuba and attach the Spaniards in both
the rear and front. r
This war will be watched with the
keenest interest br military and naval
men of the civilized world. Modern
war ships have never been fairly
tried, and it is to a great extent an experiment.
Coal is absolutely nects
sary, and it mGst be supplied in enormous
quantities. Florida is only about
80 miles from Cuba, and the United
States will have this very great advantage
over Spain. Florida can be
made the baso of supplies for our
forces. On the other hand Spain is
about 4,000 miles from Cuba.
Nododt has any idea that the Spanish
will attempt to invade any of the
States, bit it is well to renember that
it isUtrtie Sam's ehips that will keep
on*. If the p*li?r ef the Kews
aur. Ce>mw, that ef waitiag until the
Spaniards laaded bofore volunteering
for sei?y4*e, should be followed, we
have very little doubt bat that the
Spaniards would attempt to land, and
very probably would succeed. If we
are not willing to help Unc:e Sam Ight
his battles, why should we expect
Unsle Sara'* ships to protest us from
invasion? Why not come out boldly
at once, and be done with it, and say
this is not our country any way, we
have no interest in it, no respect for
its constitution, flag or anything connected
wiiL it, that our profession of
loyalty to the Federal Government, in
time of peace, was mere hypocrisy,
and that now when occasion arises for
the exhibition of genuine leyalty we
flatly refuse it?
It is almost treason to try to discourage
any man from volunteering
for service on the ground that this is
not "our war."' There may be honest
difference of opinion as to whether a
casus belli exists, we may differ a? to
whether or not the trouble could not
hare been settled, by diplomacy, but
since our country has acted there can
be no question as to onr doty. The
Confederate soldier himself has set us
a splendid example of duty for tbe
present emergency. Many of them
doubted the expediency of secession,
and some doubted tbe casas belli, but
they all responded to the call to arms,
and they didn't stop with guarding the

Ts? intcHisfc in the war is now in*
tense. The President has made a call
for about 125,000 volunteers *wd the::
will be apportioned among the States
according: to Bonulation. South Caro
lina's quota will be 2,230, and from !
indications this number of volunteers
will be fnrnisbed without any trouble
Governor Ellerbe has recommended
to the President that Major Garlingtoa,
U. S. A., now stationed at "Washing
and a native of Newberry County,
be appointed brigadier general of the
South Carolina volunteers. Tbis action
seems to meet with general approval.
Some confusion seems to exist as to
exactly how and when the Governor
will call for volunteers. One plan
first suggested wa* that he would order
the entire State malitia to Columbia,
and then make a call on them to volunteer,
bat this plan seems to have
been changed. Under ihe bill j*st
passed by Congress, the Governor will
have the right to appoint regimental
officers. It is said tnat Major J. E.
AIsIod stands a good chance of scouring
a colonelcy of a regiment. Msjor
Alston is a native of Fairfield.
If General Miles would only retire,
or get out of the army in some way,
Southern troops would feel more enthusiasm.
The man, who pst chains
on Jeff Davis, cannot hope to be popular
in the South. Southern soldiers
will always obey orders, but they caonofc
have the lespect for General Miles
that ought t? axist towards their commander.
The report that volunteers from the
South will be cent to Cuba because
they could stand the climate better has
bees denied. We hope that this will
not be done. Yellow f:ver is *orse

If the European power < should ask
that hostilities be confined to this side,
it w'il be a move against Spain and

The State malitia will have the first
chance to volunteer. Under the constitution
they can not be sent out of the

The should of the plow stock, how|
ever, are often injired by a defective
adjustment of the collar. This should
be so fitted on that the pressure cansed
by the tension of the traces will ba
evenly distributed over the the entire
surface. The trace when stretched
should be at right angles io the line of
the shoulder. The proper and only
legitimate use of the bacs band is to i
secure this adjustment.
It is not uncommon, hawever, to
see the upper hame string lied so loosely
that the tug to which the trace is

sore shoulders may be guaranteed,
instead of the pressure of the collar
being uniformly distributed aloug the

upon its point while the collar

CAPT. JAMES J OSTCS ATtS VASflttetW
(Written Especially fdr The News and
Herald by Request.*)
The subject of this sketch was bom
in Spartanburg cotmty on the 23rd day
of May, 1830, and died at his home,
near Shelton, on Sunday night, April
3rd, 1898, from a complication of disease.
The deceased entered the Confederate
army early in the beginning of
the war as a private and rose to the
rank of Captain. Judging from this
circumstance he must have been a
soldier of marked ability and true
But it was as a neighbor and cifizen
that we best knew him. He was true
to himself, his friends, hi* couuty and
State, ever ready to advise the one and
serve the other. He was often importaned
by his friends to allow them
to place him in high political poiitions,,
but he always modestly refused, and
informed them that his highest aspirations
were to be an humble, upright
Just a few years previous to the
war, in 1856, he was married to Mra.
Ma'.indst J. McConnell by which he
nnssesRftd of considerable real
estate and then turned his attention to
agricultural pursuits, wbich he followed
till the breaking out of the war,
when he enlisted as a soldier, after it
closed he again took up his chostn
profession and followed it closely and
successfully and at the time of. Ms
death was possessed of a large estate
and having no children he bequeathed
it all to bis widow.
Captain Legg wai one of the best
known and most popular citizens of
our section. He was known not only
as able, honest, jast and upright among
his fellowmen but was well known
for his sterling moral and Christian
deportment and virtues. He wa# devoted
to his religion and his church.
He became a member of tha Cool
Branch Baptist Church early in the
sixties, and from that tim# on till ms
death we might say he was the very
sonl of hi* church As deacou and
superintended of the Sunday School
he served his God, his chnrch and his
people with a fidelity that knew no
wavering. He kept his Sunday School
open every Sonday.through the year,
and we can !>av in all sinceuity' that a
deep interist was always manifested
in his lectures and other exercise?, as
the large crowd of children and grown
people always in attendance attested.
By his daily walk, by Shis painstaking
and high Christian virtues for more
than a quarter of a century bt has
done more for the moral and intellectual
training of this section than all
the ministers and school teachers that
served here daring that period. He

TQB SOUTH IN FKONT?
If it is the determination of the war j
department to form an army of Cuba#
invasion out ot Southern soldiers, itii
net likely that it spr>r:g3 from any disposition
on the part of the North to
shirk. Oa the other hand we think
that the administration believes that
the number of soldiers to be called ont
will be small, that the nHmber of places
in the army will be Jar less than the
number of volunteers and that it will
be showing a preference to the South
by allowing: 5ottthern men to do the
fghting. Without regard to the causes
of the war and the effect of the war
directly upon the South, we believe
that if there must.be war, the South
6hoold push to the front and do aa
much of the fighting as possible. A
demonstration "to tbe whole country
that the Sontb is not only willing to
flghc under tLe stars and stripes bat is
valuable to the whole country as a
soldier producing taction would be of
groat value to the Souib. If tbe South
should be so fortunate as to reap tbe
chief henor of a victory over Spain,
teaching North, West and East that tbe
nation may lean upon her in time of
need, it would be greatlv belpful to the
South politically and otnerwise. In
saying tbis, we are not speakicsr trom
a sentimental standpoint. Sentimentally,
the South is rich and great
enough, but in a war with Spain tbe
section which has the front place in the
ranks will be in luek. The South will
suffer industrially during ihs war, no
matter what svciion provides the G^ht
