THE STATE LKCIISLATI Kr.
The people of Bhelby county hive
learned to regard public ofllce a pnbllc
trust snd in filling them lock more to
qualification! than personal cooildt ra
tion. This rale shculd be especa'Iy
observed ia the selection of candidates
lor the State Legis'a uie. Democrats
in all the city watds and civil district
ar ova paring notes wiih the view of
aecuring the nomination of msn cf
ability and popularity. It is to bs
regretted that si many men are urged
as caod dates for the State Senate, aud
BO few for the House cf Representa
tive'. Henry J. Lynn, thelln. A.
H. Douglass and the Hon. W. W. Mc
Dowell are urged by their friends
as candidates for the Sonata. They
are just such men aa are need
ed in the Legislature. But
all three will be urged for
the Sentte when only two Senators
are to be electtd. If the country
ehou'd clain oae Sena or on'y one of
the above named gentlemen could re
curs a nomination and thus the people
woa'd be depiived ot the servicts of
two good men. There rre five mem
bers to be elected to the lower branch
of the Legia'a'.ure, and it is o be re
gretted that the people will be depriv
ed of the valuable services of good
men became so many aspire to the
State Senate. The Democratic party
needs t) bs represented on the Hot of
tbf. next 8'a'e Legislature by its beat
Intelligence and Its widest publio ex
perience. McDowell, Douglass and
Lynn are types of the men needed,
but all three cannot ba elected to tlo
Sepate, and if their friends would
avail themselves ol their ability,
large business experlecce acd erjtab
ll'bed. reputation? let integrity and
Jtreat popularity they cannot succeed
by urging all thr;e for the Sena'e
when only two arj to be elected, and
possibly the country will c'alm one
Seoa'or. It is hoped tint there will
bs no unseemly scramble in the selec
tion of a Democratic ticket, is candi
dates for the Legislature. No objec
tionable men have been euggeated as
candidates. Only the best men and
the beet talents of the county bave
been recommend ad, and at present it
seems impossible for the convention
to make a mistake. Hut to secure the
benefit of the popularity and ability
of the nanus urged there should be
fewer aspirants fcr the Sena'e acd
more for the House of Representa
tives. ALEYASDER NOT A COWARD.
Many journals, we obterve, speak of
Alexander's abdication as a ruler of
Bulgaria as an act of pusillanimity.
Such remark j are made without atten
tion to the circumstances. Alexander
was striving to rescue Bulgaria from
RoiB'.an domination, and the Russian
Government hated him in consequence.
Against that enmity Alexander htd
no support from the other powerj. He
was left defenseless against the greatest
military power in the world, lie
was carried off, but cot detained, to
Rose lan territory. What communica
tion be received there we do not
know, bnt it evidently convinced htm
that to remain in power without the
Crar's permission would bring wsr
apoa a peop'e he loved, and whose
battles be had fought He would not
reslga in captivity. He returned to
hia people, and after an attempt to
notify tbe Cur, which met with a bru
tal and arrogant reply, he resigned
bis posi'ion into the bauds of a people
who were faithful ti him, and thus
bis reeignation waa made with the
dignity becoming his station, and waa
made to save bis people from tbe hor
rors of war, acd the misery of being
domineered over by Russian officials
and Russian soldier. It appears from
these facta that the Prince, laying
aside considerations of personal am
b'tlon, considered only the welfare ol
the people and of the national inter
eats. The Bucharest correspondent of
tbe New York Herald states positively :
"If any hitch occur in the pr -
gramm, and if anf-Ruskiaa
demonstrations take place, tbe
Knssian troops will enter Bulgaria, and
lie country will be placed under mill
tart- reriime. The London St. Sir writ
Review throws light upon the libera
Uon of Alexsnder from Russian teni
tory. Alexander ia brother to a son
in-law of Queen Victoria. She sent a
telegram from Balmoral to St. Peters
burg, and by her interference saved
Alexander from being imprisoned in
a Russian fortress.
iippisn AND t'L'BATf TRAItE
' The American Consuls in different
foreiga ports throughout the world, re
port to oar government what they
find of Interest or importance to us re
specting the trade and Industrie i they
find around them. Theee reports are
published at intervals, and they con
tain much which would benefit oar
people If more generally known. Gon
ial Rsimer, stationed at Santiago de
Cuba, in Cuba, reported in June last
that the Juragaa iron mines there are
doing a prosperous business, and adds :
The iron mines that furnish the ore
which is transported to Philadelphia
(I regret to aay at present in English
bottoms, which precludes "tbe possi
bility of importing goods from the
United States by these steamers, ss
Eoglanddoes not eD joy the privilege
of a favored nation by treaty with
Spain) are considered by the officers
of this company to be inexhaustible."
Hera is the complaint, once more,
that comes from every qnarter, show
ing how American trale is iojnredby
the effects of oar high tariff and anti
quated navigation laws that bave de
strayed our once flourishing mer
chant service. We buy very
largely of Cuba and bave to pay other
nations to bring what wa buy
to our own shores. No wonder, then,
that we find the same Consul saying:
"Daring the past years the commer
cial necessitiei of this district have
been largely supplied by German, En
glish and Spinish products and manu
factures, but our more advantageous
geographical position tiwarl ttis
islsnd snd ths excellence of our own
manufacture and goods must and
will give us the supremacy by proper
and judicious fostering and a'dicg the
introduction of our manufacture and
products." But the commanders of
foreign shipping will neither aid, fos
ter, nor enconnge American trade.
We wait our own citizens; to bs In
that position, and they would puih
and extend our commerce. Tbe
remedy for the evil we are suffering
from is to have the ship owner free to
buy his ships where he rai bay them
cheapest snd run them under tbe
THE PREVALENT RELIGION.
6t. Paul tells the Philippians about
some people "whose god is their
belly." If he had lived in onr day be
would bavasaid, "Whose god is their
money." Tbe Almighty may reign,
but it is Mammon who is god. There
are evea oburchei that are renowned
aa being frequented by "wealthy con
gregations." The popular god bai
mostsincore and devoted worshipers
and a wonderful roll ca'l of martyrs.
So strong is Manmon piety, that mar
tyrizing Fish and Ward, aud m iny an
other devotee, never slackens the seal
of other bowers down at the golden
shrine. Prayer leaders, Sunday school
superintendents, patterns of life long
bonts'y, highly respectable mem
bers of socisty, yourg msn
about town, and "smart follows"
generally, join the greet Mammon
congregation and accomplish deeds
worthy of their faith. They betray
roB, enable ('ind, falsify account,
forge names and Mammonlm through
out with incredible constancy, all for
money. The names of such devoted
servants of gold, their deedB, and the
amount of their contributions to Man-
mon's collecting p'ato are registered in
the newspaper columns every week. or
two. The supply docs not fail. Diana
is out of fashion, but as bard as the
Ephesians we can shout: "Great Is
Mammon of tho Chrietians."
HOW A SUBSIDY WORKEt?.
The monopolist knowing that the
American people ardently des're tint
American shipping should once more
be found on every sea, as it was bafnra
ths war, are trying to have subsidies
granted to ship builders, so that taxa
tion that s lan da in the way of oar ship
building at one end of the prccesi,
may bs made up for by paying a sub
sidy to the ship owners at the other.
This is an odd, see-aw way ot accom
plishing a result. One would think the
beet way would 1)3 to rodace the tixes
and remove ths obstructions to navi
gating American ships, and so have
dona with it, but monopolisms work
in crooked ways, and so straightfor
ward a plan by no meins Huits tho'r
policy. Ru-s'a has just supp'ied an
instance of the folly and futility of
looking to subsidies to aid good,
honest trade. In that country
when there is business trouble ths
paternal government is looked to to
help and rescue. Last year there waa
a crisis in the sugar market, aud priori
went very low. The Russian dealers
had a surplus of 80,00,000 pounds,
and government was called upon to
prevent less. Government granted a
subsidy of a cent a pound upon every
pound of sugar exported. Tbe over
produced amount, and as much more
as could be got, ws exported. Ths
cohI to the government was $3,000,000
for the subsidy and $2,000,000 loss of
tbe regular export duty, But the
amount ot the over production was
got rid of, and subsidy paying ceased.
Now what iB the benefit resulting
from the $5,000,000? It there had
been no subsiJy the holding ovor of
80,000,000 pounds ol sugar would have
bsen sufficient warning to producers
to decrease the supply. But
tbo subsidy having e'eared away
the surplus, tbe produceis felt
no inconvenience from it, and
now the news comes that the present
production will have a surplus ol
much more than doable the over
production of the previous seeeoo.
lire result is that a greater
amount of diBtrers will prevail, owing
to ths subsidy, than wonld have been
experienced bad there been no sub
sidy. Such facts as this, and it is by
no means an isolated one, should
teach the United States to steer clear

Cuablehton, 8. C, September 9.
Toe city ia quint today, but the dream
of absolute immunity from danger was
rudely dispelled by a smart but innoc
uous shake of an earthquake between
1 and 2 o'clock this morninir. Shelter
bss been pretty well provided for all
the homeless, but the expected rains
will cause much suflering. Rations
are being issued to all persons who are
recommended by any raj utabte citi
zen known to tbe Relief Committee.
Charleston will also furnish rations in
the aame way to destitute persons at
Summerville aod Mount Pleasant.
Toere are rumors that the negroea will
flock here in the hope of living in
idleness, and that cotton fields and
track farms will be deserted, but this
is not likely to laitif it begins, as great
pans are taken to prevent loafers from
taking advantage of the distribution of
food by the Relief Committee. The
Board of Engineers are at work. Tney
flud that tie parapet of the western
portion ot the Custom 1 lourse is serious

considerable expense, but tue build

A NOVEL AND ENCOURAGING FEAT0RU
ot the situation is the fact that tbo
congregations of Adicin Method it t
Episcopal churches in South Carolina,
composed exclusively of colored peo
ple, are taking up collections for the
Charleston r.ilief fund. Tne stoppage
of the general issue of f-ee passes by
tbe railroads has Jimmiehed consider
ably the number of refugees from tbe
city. Since the earthquake railroads
have sold about 2500 passage tickets
from the city acd have given 700 or
800 tickets away. The It lief
Committee today issued about
7000 ratioos for seven daya
each. A soup kitchen has beea
opened, likewise, and provision has
been made for furnishing psrsons des
titute. The bulk of the applications
lor subsistence ara from colored peo
ple. To meet cas8 of distress where
personal examination cannot be made,
commissary wagons patrol tbe city
and furnish subsistence required. .
The children of the City Orphan
House moved back into their building
Later reports contradict the rumor
of the subsidence of land on the line
ot tbe Charleston and Savannah rail
way. Repoita from all parts of tbe
show thst long continuod rains will
work enormous damage to property,
besides distressing refug'es in tents
and huts. The prayer of the people is
for fine weather.

that the worst bas not yet been

THE CAPTURED APACHES
Turned Over to tbe Care of Gen.
Washington, Septembfr 9. Gen.
Drum, Acting Secretary of War, hav
log been autnorized by the President
to use his discretion iu tbe treatment
of tbe captured Apaches, has instruct
ed Gen. Miles to remove Gerouimo
and his bond to eome secure place of
confinement, aud while it is tut yet
known at the Department where they
havs been taken, it is surmised that
the caotives bave bsen removed to
Fort lilies. Tex., or some neighbor
ing post. It wss not d emed prurient
to t low the Icdians to remain at Fort
Bowie, as in tbe event ol an escape
into tbe adjacent mountains, it would
be almost impossible to recapture
them. Despite the announcement
made in tbe official telegrams that
(ieronimo's surrender was uncondi
ti nal, tbe belief is growing at the
War Department, based on ths chief's
well earned reputation b a strategist,
that be had made eome conditions
with bis captors that wi'l at least pre
vent his trial in Ariz ma. Ia tbe ab
sence of a more drfini'e understand
ing of the subject at headquarters, it
is tolerably certain that the Indians
will be beld at some Texas fort as
prisoners of waruntil PresideBtCleve
land returns and expre-ses his wishes
in the matter. It is believed by o Ul
cers competent to jadge that a civil
trial of tbe captives would be a fai ure,
as no evidence of legal weight conld
be adduced to brirg the murders that
have been committed home to any of
these Indians. Little better results
would ut end a tiial by military com-mis-ion
for tbe same reason, and it is
fait tbat the only feasible solution ot
the question of the trtatment of Ge
ronimo and his band would be their
removal to a reservation, p'oh.bly in
Florida, where from tbe surroundings
eFcaps would be impossible.
Mr. Atkins, tbe ComnvBsioaer of
Indian Allaire, is quoted by tbe Pof
ss insisting mat Geronimo must be
put to death. "Tbe President," he
sys, "will probably scon iesce in what
ever proposition Uen. Miles makes tor
disposing of tho murderer. His prop-
oji'.ion will dnnhtless be a court mar
tini, which will not tail to award a
death sentence. There is no doubt
tbat tbe Dnblio sentiment of tbe coun
try demauds tbe death of Geronlnio."
