A Courteous but Conscientious
. Grand Jury?
Oar Grand Jury for the year 18S3
were discharged on Thursday aftor
nDon cf kat week, after four days of j
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 ADVERTISES 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
incant was not wise, and did not par
ticularly meet the approbation of the
people. The law requiring the pub
lication of Ihe Treasurer's Reports of j
the disbursements of the public
moneys, although adding largely to
the official duties of that officer, is
one that must be satisfactory to the
general public. From the report of
audited accounts published by the
County Commissioners, 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 Treasurerjs -Report
which shows at^g&?ce Into whose
lid 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 a. dience sit, are all
painfully dirty. They are strong
enough and well constructed enought
but they are dark and dingy. And
the new overhead ceiling of the Court
. room has never felt the touch of the
painter's brush. Our Clerk of Couit
is a neat man and a conscientious
one; but no amount of cleaning that
he may, and does, have done wilh
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 having
of4r^WTOty strangers form
timatesofthe 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
Aa 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 Council
of Edgefield, God seems to at once
paralyze his head, his heart, his hands
-all his parts and all his senses. Or
at least this paralysis strikes him.
We doubt, however, that God has
,anything 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
be started in Edgefield? We see
om an^aijvertisement which has late
lyme? our eye in some paper-an
advertisement from J. W. Cardwell
& Co., of Richmond, Va.-that the
prices of Cotton Seed Oil Mills have
fallen wonderfully lately. For in
stance, a No. 1 Mill (2 tons seed per
day) is set down at $1,S00; and a
No. 2 Mill (4 tons per day) at $2,500.
There is money in this matter. Let
Edgefield be up and doing.

f Rf port of Grand Jury at March
STATE OP SOUTH C AROLIKA, \
EDOEFIELD COUNTY. J
To the Honorable J. II. Hudson, Presid
ing Judge for the March Term of
Court, 1883. *
We the Grand Jurors of Edgelield Coun
ty beg leave to submit to your Honor, the
subsequent report : That we have exam
ined the public Offices of our County, as
well as the Poor House, Jail and Court
House, and have thu- gathered quite a
number of items of much importance to
the citizens of Edgefield.
We have examined the Books and ac
counts of the County Commissioners' of
fice, and ve find them neatly ind careful
ly kept. We also ?nd checks drawn and
signed as far back as-1879, 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 Jchecks quarterly in
the County Newspapers.
We find, on visiting tho 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 show that the assessment .of
personal property, for the year ending
1st June 1881, amounts to $l,0S9,4G7 ; on
real estate, $2,59o,G20. Total assessment
for ISSI. $3,G8G,092. And for the yej>r
ending 1st June 1882, the assessment on
personal property amounts tu $908 OSO ;
on real estate, $3,259,SG0. Total assess
ment for 1S82, .$4,227,940; an increase for
the year 18S2 of $541,S4S. The Treasur
er's Books show (hat he collected, for
1882, $3,333.96 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 98 for com
missions,', there is s .ill remaining on hand
$95.GI, belonging to Dr. S. F. 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 visited 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, 18S3, 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. VJ"
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 and proper
manner. 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 ou,r Court. We find the Poor House
e found the Jail in good condition,
hui' lacking in blankets, cooking.and eat
ing 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 cloBe 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 thc necessary funds
to the.Clerk of the Court, and that he bc
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 room-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 Iw
have the Court House thoroughly cleans
?d and fitted for business before each ses
sion of the Court. We suggest that the
present Road law is insufficient, and
would recommend that the Legislature
mact a law, authorizing that the roads
je let out to the lowest bidder with good
>ond and security for the faithful per
ormance of contracts, and the levy of a
'easonable tax to pay for the same. Aleo
i law compelling pereons purchasing cat
.le and begs and butchering the same, to
jeep a record of the marks and brands
br the inspection of the public. Also a
aw changing the term of office of our
bounty Commissioners to 4 years, as they
icarcely become familiar with their du
,ie* before their term expire3.
We respectfully present the Corporate
luthorities of Edgefield Village for the
md condition cf their streets.
To your Honor, the Solicitor and other
)fficers of the Court for courtesies ex
,ended. we return our sincere thanks.

It is understood that suit will thort

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

this land originally was held, and
from whose possession, it is maintain
ed, the property improperly passed
by titles illegally transferred. -rMaj.

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
often dollar greenbacks in tue left

he is not an editor he will-and he

LEE VS. RICHARDSON.-Samuel
Lee, who has stoutly contended for
the seat of Mr. Richardson, in the
Forty Seventh Congress, was d&olared
not elected on the 4lh instant thereby
defeating an expected consideration on
his part of the nice lit tle sum of some
$10,000. This amount would have
accrued to bim had ho 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 c?>
nal are now complete .and will enable
the factory to utilize their water to,
better advantage. They were all ex
ecuted under the intelligent snpervi-j
