Edgefield, S. C., Mar. 15, 1883.
A Courteous but Conscientious
, Grand Jory,
Oar Grand Jury for the year 18S3
were discharged on Thursday after
nDon of last week, after four days of
hard and useful work. As will
ba seen by reference to their Re
port, published in another column>
they were courteous but conscien
tious. In plain English, they
were very sensible and very brave.
And in effect they certainly backed
up the ADVERTISER in its late advice
to our County officials concerning the
publication of their annual reports,
and in its reminder to the County
Commissioners that their economy,
in certain respects, although well
m*ant was not wise, and did not par
ticularly meet the approbation of the
people. The law requiring the pub
lication of Lhe Treasurer's Reports of
the disbursements of the public
moneys, although adding largely to
the official duties of that officer, is
ODe that must be satisfactory to the
\ general public. From the report of
audited accounts published by the
County Commissioner.?, no taxpayer
can for a moment tell who has and
who has not received money. The
mere fact of auditing accounts is no
indication that said accounts are
paid. It is the Treasurer j -Report
which shows at a_glalice into whose
\ pocketsj?s-p^?d out money has found
The recommendation as to the im
provement of our Court ; House is a
progressive movement in the right
direction. The present Court House
is large enough and convenient
enough, but decidedly shabby and
ill-furnished. That is shabby in its
want of fresh paint and whitewash.
The walls, the door and window fac
ings, the Bench of the Judge, and
the Desk of the Clerk, and the benches
upon which the av dience sit, are all
painfully dirty. They are strong
[ enough and well constructed enough>
Lbut they are dark and dingy. And
the new overhead ceiling of the Court
room bas never felt the touch of the
painter's brush. Our Clerk'of Couit
is a neat man and a conscientious
one; bat no amount of cleaning that
Le may, and does, have done with
scrubbing brush and broom, can make
any show amid so much filthy old
paint and whitewash. In short the
condition of our Court House is not
in keeping with the prosperity and
progress of our County. This ought
not to be; and we are glad to see our
Grand Jury progressive enough to
_ make the movement towards hay
their estimates of the enterprise and
progressiveness of its citizens.
That- there should be school
checks uncalled for and -undeliv
ered-through a course of two or
three years-is a fact that must have
fallen heavily upon certain teachers
.^-weak women perhaps with no one
to look after'such matters for them.
It is a comfort to know that our
. Poor House is well kept ; and cer
tainly it is a matter of pride that so
large a county as Edgefield has but
As regards the rebuke of the Grand
Jury to our Town Council, we are
only surprised that it was not sharp
er and more comprehensive. When a
man is elected on the Town Counci
of Edgefield, God seems to at once
paralyze his head, his heart, his hands
L -all his parts and all his senses. Or
at least this paralysis strikes him.
We doubt, however, that God has
^nythi?g to do with it.
- Cotton Seed Oil Mills.
In many sections of our State, Cot
ton Seed Oil Mills are being institut
ed, with flattering promises of suc
cess and'money. Cannot this thing
I be started in Edgefield? We see
Com anafjvertieeinent which han late
ly met our eye in some paper-an
advertisement from J. W. Cardwell
& Co., of Richmond, Va.-that the
prices of Cotton Seed Oil Mills have
J fallen wonderfully lately. For in
stance, a No. 1 Mill (2 tons seed per
day) is set down at $1,800; and a
! No. 2 Mill (4 tons per day) at $2,500.
There is money in this matter. Let
Edgefield be up and doing.
A Shocking Tragedy in tbe Asylum
COLUMBIA, March ll.-At the
Lunatic Asylum, at ll o'clock yester
day, a patient from Edgefield County
named Z. P.' Whatley, a sufferer from
acute mania, while in a sitting-room
_,with half a dozen other male patients,
- managed to free his hands from the
straps which bound them to his waist.
. He then tore off the arm of a wooden

Report o? Grand Jury at March
STATE OP SOUTH CAROLUS A, 1
EDGEFIELD COUNTY, J
To the Honorable J. H. Hudson. Presid
ing Judge for the March Terni of
Court, 1883. *
We the Grand Jurors of Edgefield Coun
ty beg leave to submit to your Honor, the
subsequent report : That we have exsm
ined the public Offices of our County, as
well as the Poor House, Jail and Court
House, and have thus gathered quite a
number of items of much importance to
the citizens of Edgefield.
We have examined tho Books an I ac
counts of the County Commissioners' of
fice, and we find them neatly and careful
ly kept. We also find checks drawn and
signed as far back as- 1S79, still in the old
check books, and not called for by parties
in whose favor they are drawn. We re
commend that the Commissioners adver
tise all undelivered .'checks quarterly in
the County Newspapers.
We find, on visiting the Auditor's and
Treasurer's offices, that their Books are
well kept, and correct so far as we could
examine them. We find that [the Audi
tors' Books Bhow that the assessment .of
personal property, for the year ending
1st June 1881, amounts to $1,0S9,4G7 ; on
real estate, $2,590,020. Total assessment
for ISSI. $3,G8G,092. And for the year
ending 1st June 1SS2, the assessment on
personal property amounts to $908 0S0 ;
on real estate, $3,259,S00. Total assess
ment for 1SS2, $4,227,940; an increase for
the year 18S2 of $541,848. The Treasur
er's Books show that he collected, for
1882, $3,333.90 more than was on the
Auditors' Books. We recommend that
an expert he appointed to examine all the
Books of the County officers and report to
the Grand Jury at the June term of our
.-We'have examined the Clerk's and
Sheriffs offices, and find their Books neat
ly and properly kept, and that the moneys
on deposit, vouchers and Bank accounts
We examined the Books and office of
the Judge of Probate and found them
neatly kept. In this office, we found
$99.55. After deducting $3 9S for com
missions/, there is s : ill remaining on hand
$93.01, belonging to Dr. S. P. Fant, from
estate of W. Sheppard, and Mrs. Lydia
Fulmore, from estate of Joshua Miller.
We recommend that six chairs be furnish
ed for this office. We also recommend
that this office be whitewashed, the win
dow frames painted and the windows re
We viaited the office of the School
Commissioner, he being absent, and we
examined his Record of moneys apportion
ed to each Township for the fiscal year
ending November 1, 1S83, which record
also shows what checks have been issued
to this date. We found this writing quite
legible, and correct in so far as could be
ascertained under the circumstances. We
recommend that the School Commissioner
be present at the June term of our Court
to give an account of his official acts.
' We have examined the Books of Trial
Justices E. A. Glover and W. D. Allen,
and find them kept in a neat -.nd proper
manser. 'We recommend that all the
Trial. Justices be required to bring their
Books to the Court House for the inspec
tion of the Grand Jury at the June term
of oijr Court. We find the Poor House
e found the Jail in good condition,
bu? lacking in blankets, cooking.and eat
in? utensils as well as locks. We found
the Jail yard wall in danger of falling
and recommend its immediate repair. We
found the Court House in general, bad
repair-the Grand and Petit Jury rooms
being in a disgraceful condition. Decency
requires a close plank fence to screen the
back yard of the Court House from the
street. A lock is needed for the front
doors of the passage in the lower story to
keep out loafing intruders at night. Each
office should have a key to the front door.
We further recommend that the County
Commissioners furnish the necessary funds
to the.Clerk of the Court, and that he bo
required to purchase and. supply all
necessary stationery and fuel for the Grand
Jury while in session. And lo furnish
and keep in the Grand Jury rooiu-IS
chairs ; and each Petit Jury room with
12 chairs and to be kept there; a suitable
chair for the Judge and lamps for the
Court Boom and Jury Booms; that he
have the Court House thoroughly cleans
ed and fitted for business before each ses
sion of tue Court. We suggest that the
present Road law is insufficient, and
would recommend that the Legislature
enact a law, authorizing that the roads
be let out to the lowest bidder with good
bond and security for the faithful per
formance of contracts, ^nd the levy of a
reasonable tax to pay for the same. Also
a law compelling persons purchasing cat
tle and begs and butchering the same, lo
keep a record of the marks and brauds
for the inspection of the public. Also a
law changing the term of office of our
County Commissioners to 4 years, as they
scarcely become familiar with their du
tiei before their term expires.
We respectfully present the Corporate
authorities of Edgefield Village for th?
bad condition cf their streets.
To your Honor, the Solicitor and other
officers of the Court for courtesies ex
tended, we return our sincere thanks.

Projected Suit For the Ground of a
Thriving- Carolina Village.
It ie understood that suit will short
ly be instituted against the Granite
ville Manufacturing Company and
against the town of Graniteville for
the land upon which the factory and
the village stand. The proceedings, it
is said, will be in behalf of the Wool
fork heirs in Georgia, in whose family
this land originally was held, and
from whose possession, it is maintain
ed, the property improperly passed
by titles illegally transferred. Maj.
R. J. Moses, of Columbus, Ga., it is
learned, has been retained to represent

It is given out that ladies will wear
vests precisely like the gentlemen's
this summer. When a married man
goes to bsd, he will have to put a
chalk mark cn his vest, ornext morn
ing he may slip on his wife's and not
discover his mistake until he inserts
his thumb and forefinger in the right
haud pocket for a pinch of finecut,
and finds nothing but a piece of
chewing gum, and the stub cf a soft
black lead pencil. Then he will sud
denly remember that there was a roll
of ten dollar greenbacks in the left
hand j ocket of his vest-that is, if
he is not an editor he will-and he
will rash back home in Rarus' time.
LEE VS. RICH ARDSON.-Samuel
Lee, who has stoutly contended for
the seat of Mr. Richardeon, in the
Forty Seventh Congress, was deolared
not elected on the 4th instant thereby
defeating an expect ed consideration on
his part of the nice little sum of some
$10,000. This amount would have
accrued to him had he been declared
elected. Tins amount therefore re
mained in the Treasury of the Gov
ernment, instead of passing from it
into Mr. Lee's pockets.
The Aiken Recorder says: "The
improvements to the Graniteville CE?
nal are now complete.and will enable
the factory to utilize their water to,
better advantage. They were all ex
ecuted under the intelligent supervi-j
sion of Superintendent S. W. How-'
