WAVING THE GLOOST SHUT.
WISE OF VIRGINIA AND BOUTELLE OF
An Kxeiting Debate in the llousr in
whieh the Republican* net More
than they Bargained For.
Washington Jan. 22?IIovsk: Herbert, of
Alabama, from the committee on nnvsil affairs,
reported back Hontelle's resolution callins
on tlif secretary of the navy for information
relative toallc;;ed erasures of certain inscriptions
nt the Norfolk navy yard, with
amendment extending the inquiring into dismissals
made at the navy yard and light
house district at Norfolk during the terms of
the immediate predecessors of the present
secretary of the navy.
Herbert, in stating that the resolution was
substantially the same as that originally offered
by Houtelle, except that it was somewhat
broader, demanded the previous question.
The republicans resisted this, but on a
division were out-voted S7 to 84. Tellers were
ordered, the body of republicans refrained
from votintr and upon the announcement of
the result. Ill to 7, Perkins, of Kansas, raised
The Press and Banner.
Wednesday, Jan. 27, 1886.
The Narrow Ctnugr.
No friend of the new narrow gauge need be
nlarmed by the contest in Cokesbury. The
best and soundest legal advice obtainable is
that there is nothing in the law uuder which
the township elections are to be held requiring
the production of registration certificates I
by voters. The election in Abbeville village |
to which the Press and Banner referred in the J
airtiele recently republished in the Sexes, was
regulated by the town charter which requires [
?it voters in the town to be registered in a|
book kept for the purpose.
In the township elections in Anderson and
Abbeville, some of which have gone before j
the Courts aud been sustained, voters were
not required to produce their certificates.
The charter under which the elections for
suuscriptions to the narrow gauge are held
Kives ample security to property by requiring
that the elections shall be ordered only
utter the majority <?f the real estate owners
have asked for them.
the people go to the polls and vote for
the peopled railroad, to be built by and for
the people and to be managed in their interest,
free of syndicates, monopolies and outside
influences. Itonotlet anybody trouble you
fey talk of registration certificates. Carry
yo?r certificate with you, if you have it, toremove-aJI
passible objections and prevent any
talk* If you have none, go anyhow. Your
vote will be counted. The attempt to lug
soniethinir into ttic law that is not in it is
foolishness.?Greenville Xewx, 24th.
since the elections are over, we presume it
is Dot amiss iu us to exchange a word or two
with our;rood friend of the Greenville yews,
after he assumes to speak of the legal status
of the contest. The Sews speaks of the "best
and soundest legal advice" in Greenville, and
thinks there is nothing to alarm the friends
of the road.
Admitting that the election was regular there
Is a constitutional question involved in the
voting of five per cent, in twenty year bonds
on the township. By a recent amendment to
the constitution no corporation, township or
county, is allowed to vote a debt of more than
oicht. ner rpnL Five oer cent, iu twenty year

including the interest on them,

of the amount allowed by the Constitution

this difficulty, unless he does like our Legislators
and overrides that trifling document?
Hut admitting that the election was regular>
Recording to law. and that the constitutional
amendment is not in the way, there is
yet a lion in the path. In the able dissenting
opinion of Judge Mctiowan in the case of the

Figures* that Mislead.
The JVeuv and Courier has published a statement
of the wonderful growth of .South Carolina
within the last five years, and produced 1
the figures to show that the wealth of the
Xtatc has increased 000,000 within that
time. The array of figures is formidable, aud
the items are named which go to make up
this immense sum, but for all that, the figures
nre misleading. While the investments of
which the yew9 and Courier speaks is correct.
It is not correct to set down these Investments
as so much growth, any more than It would
be to say that the gross sales of a merchant
were clear profits. For Instance, the News
and Cmtricr 6ets down several thousands of
growth at Abbeville in the mention of the
*team mills and gins at this place. The facts
are, we believe, that neither of the investers
iii this kind of property could realize the cost,
of their outlay, and it is also a fact that nei-l
ther of the owners of these establisbmentsare |
much richer than they were before they made i
this ^Investment. These gentlemen only
changed their investment or used ready cash
-or went in debt. The actual growth of the
wealth of the State may be ascertained nt the
Comptroller General's office, and we believe
no marked iucrease of the property of the
.State has been noted there.
TJie Great Ferguson Cane.
The term of the Court of Sessions at Abbeville
will begin to-morrow week. The most
important case on the docket is that of Fer-I
guson. charged with the murder of Kenedict.
Ferguison has been tried twice, the resul t being
a ctisirial in both instances. The State
has now given notice that it. w'H move for a
change of venue. The grounds for it will
probably be an allegation that the excitement
over the case in Abbeville county and the two
trials have caused such general discussion
that it |s difficult or impossible to obtain a
good Jury of men who have not formed an
opinion. There is a general impression that
the State cannot move for change of venue,
but It is erroneous. There is goi?d precedent
lor the granting of such a motion.? Greenville
Our neighbor may be right in saying that
inere is preeeaeni jor me nutm uniKiug hjjjjucation
to change the venne, but it is quite
likely there is ample precedent for the refusal
-of such motion.
In He Ashamed of HI* Teachers?
We see by the Newberry Herald and News
that the County School Commissioner desires
to keep the names of the teachers, to whom
certificates have been awarded, out of the
newspapers. While it is none of our business,
we are constrained to ask the reason for
this public officer's strange proceeding in withholding
his official acts. Has certificates
been denied to some who should have had
them? Has partiality been shown in any
way? Or, is the School Commissioner ashamed
of the lot ? It seems strange to one at this
. .distance that any public officer should withhold
the light from his official act*, unless it
be based on a contempt for the people whose
money pays the expense.
The Greenville News is now printed on new
type, and the improvement otherwise is un.
-doubted. It now prints head lines to many
of its articles. The News is always fully alive
to everything in the newspaper world. Brother
Williams edits on the intensive system
and puts a little of everything in his paper.

the point of order that no quorum had voted.
"It is evident then," sold Herbert, "thnt the
gentlemen do not want their own interrogations
answered. I withdraw the report."
(.Applause on the democratic side.]
The speaker held that as the report was
made to the house by order of ttie committee,
it could not be withdrawn without leave of
the house. [Applause on the republican
A call of the house disclosed the presence of
2M members, there being hut 29 absentees,
and, on motion of Herbert, the resolution
wns adopted directing the sereeant-?t-arms
to arrest and bring to the bur
of the house such members as were absent
without leave. Immediately, Reed moved
that all further proceedings under the call be
dispensed with. He called attention to the
fact that there was an unusually full attendance
of members. The sole question which
now existed was a question of the liberty of
Herbert stated that the rules of the house
prescribed a reasonable time for debate on a
resolution of this character. Thirty minutes
were allowed, fifteen for each side, after the
previous question was ordered. It was simply
a resolution ot Inquiry and there was
nothing to debate until the Inquiry had been

2.-30, Herbert thought he had secured a quorum
of the democrats and accordingly, further
proceedings under the call were dispensed
with. The previous questions was t hen ordered
on the resolution, yeas 159; nays 91.
Then was crowded into the next half hour
the most exciting political debate that has
been presented to the house the present session.
The debate was opened by Boutelle
who premised his direct spcech upon the resolution
with a remark calling attention to
the fact that the first legislative act of tlie
house had been the passage by unanimous
consent of abill removing the political disabilities
of an ex-Confederate who had worked
more t?han twenty years before discovering a
desire to an appointment, under trio executive
department of the United States. In contrast
with this he (Boutelle) had been tnunt
Ingly intormed that fifteen minutes of time
was ati ample allowance in which to present
the case of the outrageous dismissal of disabled
veterans of the Union army from the
employment of the govern men t and obliteration,
debasement and removal of inscriptions
commemorative of the success of the Union
He trusted that these facts placed in Juxtaposition
would prove more instructive to the
country than any remarks he could ofier.
The resolution he had introduced had related
the allegation that, an officer of the United
States government, at one of the navy yards
of the government, had ordered the obliteration
of honorable inscriptions on cannons
captured by the United States government
and caused to be removed from the dry dock
a memorial tablet setting forth tlint tl had
been destroyed by the rebels In 1.SG2 and reconstructed
in 18ft!. lie did not understand
that these facts had been in any way contradicted.
On the contrary he found that, the
Nortolk paper, whose editor was closely connected
with the officer, had stated that Commandant
Truxton, in place ot condemnation,
was entitled to praise. The paper said that
when he had taken cnarge or me ynru. hb
had found inscriptions intended to keep alive
the bitter memories of the civil war, and
had patriotically ordered them to be removed.
Boutelle then referred to the removal of the
superintendent of machinery of the navy
yard because of demurring to the defacement
of the dry dock and the appointment of a
man whose title to the position rested on his
servlee in the t.'onfederate army. He considered
that sufticiont reason for calling attention
to the matter. He had found evidence
that since the 4t h of March 1885, there had
been repeated and systematic removals from
oositionsin which they were p aced of officers
of the government, of wounded and
disabled veterans of the republic, to make
place for men who had sought to destroy it.
He had a list of great marble memorials
crowing up all over this land to perpetuate
the cause ot treason and rebellion. He had a
description of a monument erected in Georgia,
bearing inscriptions breathing anything
but a spirit of loyalty to this government,
the monument bearing on its lace evidence of
a design to perpetuate the memory of the attempt
on the life of the republic. A soldier
who came to Washincton might wander in
vain through the great art repository of this
city looking for the counterfeit presentment
of one of the heroes who sustained the flag of
the Union, but would find that the only men
.|.I<A iroro mornnpiiilljBfl iniH rumpnihi-l'pd in
Corcoran art. gallery were Robert K. Lee and
stonewall Jackson. These representations
were not simply to keep alive the memory of
tjie great war. but were representations of
soldiers. Tliey were depicted in full Confederate
uuiform. Two years ago, when the
house was considering an appropriation of
one million dollars for the New Orleans exposition,
the people down there who were so anxious
to have the Union memorials obliterated,
were erecting a monument thirty leet
I high to Robt. E. Lee, the cnlef military head
of the rebellion. There wus no Justice in the
claim that broad patriotism required the obliteration
of the records of the e rand est,
triumph ever made in humanity since first
the morning stars sang together. [Applause
on republican side.] 1 lie people ofthiscountry
ought to say as old General I)ix said in regard
to the American flag : "If any man attempts
to pull down the memorial of the
great triumph of the loyal people of this
country, shoot him on the spot. [Prolonged
applause on republican side.l
Wise, of Virginia, was glau that he had an
opportunity to make a statement of facts,
although he had hoped that the subject of the
resolution would not have been discussed until
information had been received from the
secretary of the navy. The gentleman from
Maine, (Boutelle)on more than one occasion
had souuht to revive the passions and prejudices
of the war. He (Wise) would examine
how much of the truth there was in the statement
of ihese resolutions. The secretary of
the navy was called upon to report if any
tablet had been destroyed at the Norfolk navy
yard, which commemorated the fact that
the dry dock at Portsmouth had been destroyed.
He was glad ot the opportunity to Inform
the gentleman from Maine that the dry
dock at Portsmouth had never been destroyed.
[Applause ou the democratic side.J
The gentleman asked the secretary of the
navy If Inscriptions had been removed from
the cannon captured from the Confederate
ariny. He would Inlorm the gentleman from
Maine that no cannon with such inscriptions
had ever|been in Porthsmouth navy yard.
(Applause on the democratic side.]
The gentleman from Maine wanted to
know if the Union soldier had been discharged
and a Confederate put in his place. He
would inform the gentleman from Maine that
the man who was discharged had never been
in the Union jvrnv, had never been within a
thousand miles of the line of battle; had
never heard the music of tninie balls. [Applause
and laughter on the democratic side.]
Boutelle? "Did he not render great service
to his country:
"No, sir," replied Wise. "He, sir, was in
receipt of a large salary in a bomb proof position,
while brave men fought the battles of
Brady, of Virginia, rose and asked permission
to propound a question.
"No, sir, no sir." exclaimed Wise, "I will
give you my attention in one minute." "The
Confederate, or one whom you (Boutelle) alleged
was appointed on account of his service
in the Con tederate army was appointed
after competitive examination. The man to
whom you refer was removed for beastly intoxication
[Applauseand laughter 011 democratic
side.] "One other fact I wish to coinmend
to your consideration: During Mr.
Arthur's administration, the postmaster at
Portsmouth, who was a Union soldier, twice
wounded and twice promoted for gallantry,
was removed at the dictation of William Mahone."
[Applause and laughter on democratic
side. I "All, Mr.Speaker,"it is a good thing
to raise a fuss over this, isn't it? Your leilow
citizens of Maine," addressing Boutelle,
are anxious to know if a Contedeiate has
been appointed in the Norfolk navy yard by
this administration. Have you forgotten
that during the Grant administration and
during the administrations of Hayes and
Authur, you sent the captain of the Confederate
guerri las?John S. Mosby?to represent
the government of the United States
in a foreign country. [Applause 011 democratic
side. I Have you forgotten that Longstreet,
Confederate lieutenant general, was
selected by ycur republican administration
for the most important, office in Georgia?
Why is it, I will a*k the gentleman from
Maine, that we have not heard a howl from
tiiat ice hound region about these appointments.
[Laughter on democratic side. J
"Does the gentleman desire a reply?" inquired
"No sir," exclamined Wise, "go rend the
speech of a senator or the United States, who
with all kindness, is in the estimation of the
whole country a better mau than you are. Go
read the speech of Chas. Sumner, of Massachusetts."
"If Charles Summer knew that his ma?nnnimous
suggestion would be quoted by you
for such a purpose he would turn in his
grave/'exclaimed Kou telle, amid much confusion.
"Go," continued Wisd, "and read thespeech
of Charles Sumner, of Massachusetts. If I
mistake not he was the first in the country
who declared some fifteen years ago that t he
time had come for peace and that the bitter
memories of the war should be removed;
and mark the contrast between the leader of

Speaker, I want to say one word more to him,
while we sit here and vote pensious to your
"Our soldiers," exclaimed Boutelle.
"Yes." replied Wise, ' our soldiers, we are in
tiie house ol our fathers and we have come to
stay. [Applause on democratic side.] While
we are ready and willing to vole pensions to
honorably discharged soldiers who served
their country in the time of war, we will
never consent, that it shall be held and proclaimed
(in high that one who happened to
have been in the Confederate army is forever
debarred from the service of his country. I
protest that these honorable soldiers of the
Union army shall never again be subjected to
treatment they were subjected to under the
last administration; when men who had
fought bravely for the Union, under a circular
hearing the names of William Mahone. as
chairman, and James D. Brady, present
member of this house, as secretary?"
"There was no such circular," interrupted
Brady. "I challenge him to produce the circular."
' When," continued Wise, not heeding the
Interruption, "they were required, under the
j whip of the master, to give money for partisan
purposes?required, like slaves to hold
their ballots up that their bosses and minions
mignt see whether they voted right. Oh,
what an attitude in which to place a discharged
soldier of the Union?under the whip
and lash of a Confederate brigadier. [Loud
and continuous aptilause from the democratic
side and in the galleries.l
At this point the speaker brought, down his
gavel and declared that Wife's time had expired.
Brumm, of Pennsylvania, was immediately
on his feet asking unanimous consent
that Wise's time he extended, in expectation
that if this was done similar courtesy would
be extended to Boutelle to reply, but the democrats
were wary and comprehending that.
Wise had been cntotr In a most telling part
of his speech and that its effect might be
weakened by the addition ot further remarks,
replied to the suggestion with a storm of objections.
Wise took his seat and received
hearty congratulations from his party friends.

take tlie following paragraphs, as showing the
kindly l'cellngs existing between pastors and
people. We learn from a private source that
the llev. (j. H. Pritchard was received at Doualdsvillc
in the best manner possible. Many
of tlie congregation met him and his family
at the depot, and escorted them to their new
home, where they found the fires burning, and
-a well-filled larder. The minister and his
wife received a nearly welcome, found a warm
house, and plenty of the substantial things for
the support of life. If good cheer will last a
poor man half a year, what will such a reception
as Mr. Pritchard received, do for the
We have been most kindly received by our
good people here. We were met at the depot
on our arrival and driven at once to the parsonage,
where we found comfortable provision
made for us?-ood fires, a sumptuous dinner
and something to go on tor several days. The
new pastor is beginning to adjust himself to
his changed circumstances, and is entering
with hope and cheerfulness upon the work divinely
committed to his hands. Presiding
Elder Smart gave the first Sunday of the new
year to Abbeville station.and preached twoexceilent
sermons to appreciativecongregations.
The station provided for the prompt payment
of one-rourth of its Foreign Mission assessment.
The first number of Advocate? new series?comes

your predecessor on his exit. 8. A. wkbek.
I met my first appointment, lor the now year
Ia:<t Sunday, Had very encouraging congregations,
notwithstanding the bad weather,
both at Salem and Ninety-Six. On Wednesday
last I gathered my little family together,
and we?leaving Bro. Dagnall and family In
charge of the Cokcsbury circuit and circuit
parsonage?bade adieu to Cokcsbury, sileitly
praying God's blessing upon the town and circuit.
I was encouraged on leaving by kind
services rendered, and especially by having a
bill placed in my hand by a young man not a
member of the Methodist church, who said,
"to hilp make up shortage." The Lord,
through his agents, has made up all shortage.
Mr. G. W. Connor's turnout got. us to the depot,
in good time and much comfort, considering
the sharp wind; and Mr. llowlelt's kindness
provided a j:ood fire to keep the wife and bnbles
warm while we waited tor the train. The
train came, and we were off tor Ninety-Six.
In a few minutes the conductor said, "NinetySix,
twenty minutes for dinner." We took
more than twenty minutes for dinner, and it
is well we did; for we could never have done
justice to the dinner we found at the parsonage
in that time?iu fact we havn't eaten it all
yet. Well, the good people Just met us with
sympathy and much kindness, and it looked
as if they were conscious of the fact that they
were only discharginga religious duty as unto
the Lord. They made no luss about what they
did. and we will make none; we will Just say
that we are as comfortable to-night as Hro. G.
M. Boyd or hro. Traywlck can possibly be,
notwithstanding the "cold wave with the blizzard
accompaniment" has reached us. "We
thank God and take courage." Allow me to
congratulate you on your first Issue of the Advocate,
which I have Just received and read.
If you do any better when .vou get the "hang

and nmoni:others a bench lull of little boys
In front, who pave abundant evidence of their
high appreciation of his readings. The elocutionist
occupied the Judge's stand, while the
great space between him and the railing was
unoccupied. This put even the nenrest auditors
ut a great distance from the reader, whose
tone of voice was not hlish, and whose artlculation'was
not clear?to some of us, at le;iot.
The elocutionist must have been delighted
with the noise which the boys made, for at the
conclusion of his readiug, lie announced that
he would read again the next, night, with an
entire change of programme. lie also said
that he would give all a chance to come, and
said the price of tickets for the second reading
would he reduced to 25 cents for grown people,
and to ir> cents for children, including in this
lower price, all the pupils of any of the
schools. This Information was received without

The audience on Thursday night was
evidently much smaller than the speaker
expected, and there was a notable absence of
any dispute or contention about reserved
seats. The audience consisting of two printer's
devils, (Mr. Tompkins Mabry and Mr.
Wesley Norrcll). and perhaps one or two others.
who either ha<l, or expected, free tickets
ol admission, were not hard to please in the
matter of seats,and they arranged this important
question among themselves without
the Intervention of either an umpire or a police
ollleer. After a reasonable waiting one of
the little boys began to entertain fears that
the reading would not take placo, and in a
very modest way went forward and asked the
elocutionist if he was going to have tne show.
This seemed to excite ttie alleged elocutionist,
who replied to the little boy: "How in the
hell do you expect me to show without au audience?"
The modest little boy wilted, and
has not yet answered the question. The elocutionist
then announced a postponement of
the reading which was to Imve been "with nn
entire change of programme." The audience
then adjourned.and the lights were blown out.
Every thinu passed off pleasantly. Nothing
occurred to mar the peace, good order, und
harmony of the occasion.
