Far On Through Ages !
On Monday last, the customary memo
rial ceremonies, in part, were performed
in our village cemetery. There was no
address, and no ostentation, but the Edge
field Rifles, assisted by the ladies of the
community generally, visited the graves
of the Confederate dead and adorned
them with flowers. The men who fill
these flower-decked graves died for their
country, and thereby entitled them,
selves to everlasting remembrance
and eternal honor. And great will be
tho shame if this annual tl oral tribute is
neglected while even one survives of the
generation that saw these heroes give up
home and go cheerfully to death. Let
this bountiful and appropriate custom
live far on through everlasting ages !
The Most Beautiful
The two graves most beautifully dec
orated on Monday last, were those of two
ol the finest fellows that ever breathed
the breath of mortal life-or died to il.
lustrate tme nobility-Linet. Lamar
Wardlaw and Lieut. Edmund Penn. The
first was lavishly and artistically adorn
ed with magnificent flowers of all kinds
and colors, while the latter was almost
covered beneath crosses and circlets of
the purest white roses, without even a
Heck of coloring.
A Noble Feature.

A Neglected Question.
The question of tho repeal or continu
ance of the two-thirds rule by which the
Democratic party has been governed in
National Conventions should have been
grappled with and decided by our late
County Convention. To us it seems
that the changing of the two-thirds rule
which has carried us safely through so
many Presidential elections in which the
Democratic party has been successful,
would be inadvisable at this juncture,
when it is so important, in view of tho
momentous struggle before us, to keep
down every question which might agi
tate and disturb the harmony of the par
ty. This consideration alone, outside of
the real merits of the ease, which we do
not propose here to discuss, should cause
us to let w*ll enough alone.

If this is fact we know of some who have

Interesting- to Farmers
Now that the revenue officers are mak
ing their raids throughout the country,
it might be well for our farmers to be a
little cautious how they handle tobacco
on their plantations. It is a weil known
fact that many farmers buy tobacco and
let it out to the hands on the place with
out for once intending to evade the reve
nue laws. The revenue officers, howev
er, charge that a farmer who sells tobac
co in this way is liable to arrest for sell
ing tobacco without a licsnso. They
claim that every farmer who buys tobac
co from the merchants and sells it to his
tenants for any purpose whatsoever is
liable to indictment.
We would suggest to every one to be
ready for the census enumerator when
he comes around in June. Bear in mind
that this has nothing to do with the as
sessment of property for the purpose of
taxation. Go to work now and get as
near as possible to the actual amount and
value of products of last year. This will
include everything raised on the farm,
as well as all farm animals. The names
and ages of the family will be required.
It will facilitate matters very much if
these facts are all prepared beforehand.
If you have neighbors, white or colored,
who do not* read. the. jjapers. and, ivho
may be ignorant of tho purport of a cen
sus, explain it to them, so they may be
prepared to answer without reserve.

The attendance is said to be larger than
ever before, probably not fewer than six
hundred delegates, besides a great num
ber of visitors. Devotional exercises, led
by Dr. John A. Broaddus, occupied the
time while the tellers were counting the
ballots. In the afternoon session the an
nual report of the board of foreign mis
sions was presented by the secretary, Dr.
Tupper, and the annual report of the
home mission board by Dr. McIntosh.
The foreign mission report notices first
the death of Dr. Jeter in appropriate
terms. It mentions the departure of sev

work done in China, Alrica, South Amer

be ina prosperous condition. The sum of
$50,000 is represented as obtained and
disbursed in this work.
The home mission report also is en

in California under the auspices of this
board, and the work among the Indians

EDITOR REGisTEr. : A great many pa
pers throughout the State are advocating
the policy of placing a new man in the
field, or, in other words, let us have an
other candidate outside of Hagood and
Gary; it is impossible for either of these
gentlemen to unite the Democratic party.
The friends of either will doubtless com
bine harmoniously for some other availa
ble candidate for Governor. If the Dem
ocratic party of South Carolina is to be
torn asunder by party factions and wrang
lings it is a matter of grave importance
to the June Convention to consider the
fact of nominating a man more accepta
ble to the people at large than Hagood
Considering the facts, then, that we must
have a new man, let us bruigforward that
distinguished gentleman of South Caroli
na in whom every citizen can repose con
fidence and whos-: virtue and mod?ration
entitles him to the honest vote of every
man in the State. Where can we lind a
man to imitate more the example of the
noble and illustrious ILnipton than the

ALLENDALE, MAY ?.-The following
- ordinance passed on April IS by our town
council entitles Allendale to a place on

Two or three homicides have occurred
here owing to pistols and whiskey, but I
hope that this law will prevent such dis
graceful occurrences in future.

AN ORDINANCE to prohibit the carrying
of concealed weapons within the cor
porale limits of the Town of .Allendale.
Beil arda ried by the town council of
Allendale, now met and silting in council,
and it is hereby ordained by authority of
the same :
SECTION 1 That on and after the pass
age of this ordinance-ihe carrying conceal
ed about the person of any pistol, dirk,
butcher-knife, sword or spear-cane, metal
knuckles or other weapons ol' offence, is
hereby prohibited within the corporate
li :ts of the town of Allendale, under a
penalty of not less than ten dollars fine or
ten days' imprisonment for each and ev
ery offence, upon conviction thereof; Pro
vided, that this ordinance shall not apply
to the sheriffs of this State or their depu
ties, or to any special or regular constable,
or to the town marshal or his duly ap
pointed assistants, in the discharge of
their respective duties as such.
.SEC 2. That it shall be the duty of thc
town marshal to report all offenders
against this ordinance to the intendant of
the said town, who shall forthwith issue
his warrant for the arrest of such offender
or offenders and have them brought br',
fore Council for trial. That upon failure
of the town marshal to discharge the du
ty herein required of him he shall upon
conviction thereof be fined or discharged
in the discretion of council.
SEC. 3. That upon all convictions under
this ordinance, when the line is realized
out of the defendant, thc informer shall ba
entitled to receive one-half of the same.
Done in Council this 13th day of April,

Whiskey and i'istols.
The work goes on weil, and the indica
tions now are that the Legislatare next
winter will be forced by public opinion lo
regulate whiskey tra flic and pocket min
der. In themselves laws will not ::hange
the habits of a community. They require
the support and countenance of the people
or they soon become a dead letter. In the
present casi, the legislation cor.cerningp's
tols and whiskey will be thc expression of
a vigorous public sentiment already exist
ing, and ready to crystallize in any form in
which it will be effective. Behind the laws
will stand the deliberate opinion of the
thinking public that intemperance and the
hajbit of carrying concealed weapons are
the root from which springs wastefulness,
profligacy and crime in the State. There
is no reason, therefore, to regret the pre
vious inaction of the Legislature. Every
day the good cause wins new friends and
Some cheering facts have been recordel
during the week which ends to-day.
To the Roll of Honor are ad'Jed the
towns of Beaufort and Allendale which
have prohibited, by ordinance, the carry -
of concealed weapon?.
The Grand Jury of Orang-murg County
have fixed the price of liquor licenses out
side of the town at twelve hundred dol
?an. This will have the effect of shut
ting up the road side and cross-roads grog
shops. The people, however, must aid the
public officers by reporting promptly any
illicit dealings in whiskey. The grand
jury has also recommended the passage of
a law prohibiting, under severe penalties,
the carrying of concealed weapons. One
objection advanced is that in traveling
through the country, especially at night,
it is necessary to carry firearms for pro
tection. This is no reason why they should
be hidden. A pistol buckled around the
waist will have more effect, as a m^ans ol
protection, than two in the hip-pocket. It
is the concealed weapon, not the displac
ed weapon, that maims and slays in quar
rels and drunken brawls.
The bai rooms in the Town cf Lincaslet
were closed last week, and'will remain
closed for a year at least, as the Town
Council are determined lo enforce Ihe law
against all persons who sell any kind of in
toxicaling drink. Two of the barkeepers,
whose occupation is gone in Lancaster
were on their way to Charlotte at lasl
These are gratifying signs of the huh
that the Whiskey and Pistols movemen
already has in South Carolina. The new?
papers have come to the aid of the pulpit
and when the women of the State, win
feel so deeply, shall speak out and act up
on their convictions, the remedial agencie
will be both potent and complete.-New
