MOTHER REIGN OF PERJURED
TESTIMONY AND PACKE!)
Trials iDves?igatcd in Malice and
Pushed Forward for Unholy
Edgefield Uninvolved as Yet.
The Chief Justice of the United States
-Waite-is expected to hold the April
term of the United States Court in Char
leston. And on this occasion, South Car
olina is to be subjected to another reign
of perjured testimony and packed juries.
The United States Government, through
ile Agents in this State-the principal of
whom is District Attorney Melton-Sam
uel Melton-is busily preparing for the
prosecution, for political eff?ct, of citizens
of South Carolina, for alleged violations
of the election laws, the intimidation of
voters, and similar charges. In these
tramped np casos, the Government will
be "represented by District Attorney Mel
ton, ex-Chief Justice Willard, Wm. P.
Snyder, a lawyer of Allentown, Penn.,
and Congressman Richard Crowley, of
Buffalo, New York. Snyder and Crow
ley are sent to our State on this unholy
errand by Attorney General Brewster.
The first dash in this pitiful business
waa made some three weeks ago, when
United States Commifsioner Banskett at
Colombia, issued warrants for the arrest
of the following citizens of Fairfield County:
Jaa. Herron, J. M. Kirkland, S. S. Curry,
Taos. McGill, Jr., James McGill, Joseph
?Meekio, JoelMcMeekin, Nicholas Peay
hos. Aiken. Two white' Greenback -
W. Aughtry and J. H. Martin,
out the warrants, charging the par
ith violating the election laws in
fag to assist them as Deputy Mar
I when called upon todo so at the polk,
swore out a warrant against Her
ron for assaulting him at the polls.
At a preliminary hearing accorded these
gentlemen in Columbia, a few days after
their arrest, the witnesses of the Govern
ment, not being well up in their leesons,
and not swearing to enough to justify
taking the cases into Court, Melton and
Willard deliberately continued them, to
give the Government time to look up new
and swifter witnesses. Large numbers of
arrests are being made over the State ;
and in certain subsequent preliminary ex
aminations, the same farce of postpone
ment or continuation has been resorted
to-gaining time to hunt np creatures
ready to perjure themselves for a few
In thus arraigning our people, it ii very
clear that the Republican party are not
seeaing for the purity of elections, but for
political capital to go before the country
opon as the champions of lair*electione.
After every election in South Carolina,
warrants are issued sgainst a large num
ber of reputable citizens, for some alleged
violation of some of the elastic sections
of the Revised Statutes of the United
States. Deputy marshals are dispatched
over the country to annoy and harass the
people; or else the citizen is summoned
to appear before a Commissioner to an
swer charges utterly without foundation
spies are sent to every polling place in
the. State daring an election, clothed with
the authority of Deputy Marshals or Su
pervisors, and they notice and "in their
memory keep" every trivial and jocular
remark made by any Democrat during an
election, and afterwards, by horrible dis
tortion and downright lying, make it the
basis of political persecutions. These
craven cowards go to the election, andi
under the protection the great U. S. gov
ernment gives them, behave in a very
shameful and insulting manner, until
perhaps some rash youth, provoked be
yond endurance, utters some imprudent
remark, and be is at once marked for Fed
eral persecution. These officials are usu
ally the most ignorant, 'unprincipled, de
graded white men in the community, or
else brutal negroes totally destitute of all
instincts of truth, honor or gentility.
The whole matter and all the proceed
ings are an outrage upon manliness and
justice; and a deep disgrace to the Fede
Edgefield County has not been raided
aa yet; but notwithstanding her utter free
dom from ail the violations and outrages
complained of, her turn will, in all proba
bility, soon come.
The Pudding Well Proved.
Those who voted against thu Stock
Law have proved the pudding and now
warmly approve it. As a consequence
of this law many waste places have been
reolaimed, which formerly would have
cost too much by reason of the extra
fencing. The cattle and horses have
wonderfully improved, Jersey bulls
having been brought into many neigh
borhoods. Another great advantage has
been mode plain in the improvement of
the soil since the trampling of the stock
has ceased. And a very remarkable ?j.
suit of the stock: law is_tnat o?*V, ,
^^^wi?n^rgrowth pine will. Tho theory
of this thing is that formerly the young
oaks were bitten oif by the browsing
?tock just as soon as the leaf appeared
above the ground. Now that tho cows
are kept off the oaks ore allowed to
spring up and grow. All tb eso clrciim
stances have caused land in this county
io quadruple in value since the resurrec
tion of thc State.
Return io the Radical Hog-pen.
In connection with the pending politi
cal trials in Charleston, the accomplished
Columbia correspondent of the Augusta
CJironicle and Constitutionalist, "Rich
land," draws this admirable pen picture
Willard is a genuine, thoroughbred,
unadulterated carpet-bagger. Being gifted
with an unusual snare of what is vulgarly
termed "brass," and "by ways that are
dark and tricks that are vain" he suc
ceeded in having himself elected an Asso
ciate Justice of South Carolina by the
vultures who fed upon the State in the
days of Radicalism. The other Associate
Justice at the time was an imbecile ne
gro. The Supreme Court, os then consti
tuted, was a proper judicial tribunal for
the corrupt days in which it existed.
Upon the death of Chief Justice Moses
and the accession of the Democrats to
power, Willard, for supposed services
rendered the party at a critical time, was
rewarded by being elected for Moses' un
expired term. He has, since his retirement
from the Supreme Bench, returned to the
Radical hogpen and is one of the vilest
and bitterest of the crew in the State.
He is an old man now, his hair is frosted

Death of Col Bartley M. Blocker
The Waynesboro Herald, of Burke
County, Ga., tb ns announces the death
of an Edgefield man of high and honored
lineage, and who leaves behind him, in
his native county, troops of warm and
kindly-remembering friends :
We have just learned that CoL B. M.
Blocker died at his home in this county
on Snnday last. The Colonel was a man
of peculiar views, was a Rood citizen and
stanch^ friend, and one ol those positive
characters that always encounter opposi
tion ia their pathway through life. De
scended from the best people of South Car
olina, a fact which he never forgot, be was
afflicted with a propensity to" have his
fun ont of everybody around him. Mr.
B. was not a popular nan, But even thoBe
who did not admire lum in life will accord
to his memory their admiration for genu
ine clever heart and bis sterling honor as
a man. The county ha3 lost a good citi
zen and his friends a stanch elly.

Working County Roads.
Now iu the season, says the Industrial
South, for a fair estimate and a proper ap
preciation of the advantages of good coun
ty roads over the disadvantages of bad
county roads. To say nothing of the dis
comfort and danger of the long exposure
of the drivers of teams hauling on bad
county roads during the winter months,
the gain in time saved and in quantity
carried, ought to be a sufficient considera
tion to induce every reflecting man living
in the country to agree to unite in any
reasonable movement for the improve
ment of the public roads of his county.
The sanie reason that brought the rail
roads into existence, ought ti bring the
county roads into the best possible con
dition that can bc made consistent with
the necessary cost. The railroad car is
quicker, greater in capacity, and cheaper
as a means of transportation than the old
wagon which it has superseded ; and so,
too, a well graded, well drained, and, if
practicable, well-graveled county road
will be fouud similarly superior to the old
road in old condition, with ruts, and holes,
and Bteep hills requiring four horses to do
tho work of one, and consuming a whole
J day when four or five hours, on a good
road, would be ample.
This is a serious question of econo.uy,
iu -vhich the interests of farmers are much
mc :e deeply involved thau all farmers
may suppose. And, although men en
gaged ia agriculture are ' exceptionably
slow in new movements, they are never
theless men of clear heads and practical
intelligence, and the day is not distant,
we hope, when, after carefully estimating
the coat and reasonably computing the
profits, they will set to work earnestly in
co-operation for improving their county
roads wherever improvements are needed.

Mr. J. A. 0. Jones, of Trenton, South
Carolina, is a scientific farmer. He
enters the lists this year as a contest
ant for the prize offered by B. F.
Avery & Sons for tho greatest yield
of cotton on three acres. Mr. Jones
is now preparing the plat which he
has selected for the trial. It waa.in
cotton last year, making a 500 pound
bale per acre. In the old water fur
row? he opens and strews fifteen bush
els green cotton seed, and on that one
hundred and fifty pounds Etiwan, No.
2, per acre, and beds it out. Before
planting he will run furrows across
the beda ; in these furrows he will
sprinkle a liberal supply of lot manure
and on that one hundred and fifty
pounds of Etiwan No. 1, per acre,
and cover with two light furrows. At
the intersection of the manured fur
rows the seed will be dropped by
hand, and will be thinned down to
two stalks to the hill giving as a stand
something over seven thousand plants
per acre. This cross manuiing is a
novel idea and certainly will furnish
the extra-stimulant the young plant
needs, and the conservative influence
required by the large growth. Mr.
Jones will trust himself alone to do

The Outrage Condemned.
The Columbia correspondent of the
News and Courier, speaking of the
outrageous conduct of the government
in the eft' rt to get up new political
trials, says :
The white people of the State may
as well make np their mjnds that
they h?ve to undergo another such
ordeal as that through which they
passed last spring. The trials in
April will show the same unscrupu
lousness on the part of the United
States department of injustice. North
ern men spending the winter in Co
lumbia say that if the people of New
England were treated as those Fair
field Democrats were treated last
week they would rise up and lynch
their persecutors. They regard the
patience and foibearance of our peo
ple under the tyrannies of Brewster
and Melton as phenomenal. They
would not permit at home, they say,
arrests to be made on such evidence
as that produced in the Monticello
case. Of course not. It is only th*
rebellious Red shirts ef South Caro
lina who are patient and don't get
credit for it. I am fold that in New
Hampshire United States deputy
marshals have been appointed only
once in a number of years, and that
only for one township at an election.
Brewster could not clo at home what
he does here. The States of the North,
I am told, would not allow such in
terference with their elections.
A Big Fee aud Great Expectations,
We ate told that the Hon. Richard
Crowley, the New York lawyer who
is to assist in the South Carolina po
litical j- rosecu tiona next month, is an
intimate friend of President Arthur.
He was retained as counsel for the
Government in the Buffalo Bank case
last summer, and is 6aid to have man
aged it so well that Attorney General
Brewster has given him another job.
The fame Washington letter from
which we get this information adds
that Mr. Crowley's fee " will be a
handsome one," and that " he is justi
fied in expecting some convictions in
the South Carolina election caeea this
time.'/ Xj9 BBBftated npomwhati
Int has any evidence to justi
fy the expectation of a single convic
tion we have yet to hear of it. But
possibly Mr. Cfowley may be one of
those advocates who, for a considera
tion, can make np theil minds without
the trouble of listening to any evidence.
Mr. Dallas Sanders, of Pennsylvania,
was just that kind of lawyer. A year
ago, it will be remembered, he came
to Charleston upon a miesion similar
to that in which Mr. Crowley is to
earn his big fee. But " my dear Dal
las" went back to Philadelphia with
his professional plumage sadly ruffled
by the discovery that in South Caro
lina even political " suspects" are
held to be innocent until proved to
be guilty. We trust that a like dis
covery will not prove too severe a
Bhock to Mr. Crowley End his " ex
pectations."-News and Courier.
A correspondent of the Cleveland
Leader, writing to his paper of the
drinking methods of Congressmen,
makes a bar-keeper say :
" We have some curious drinkers
among the members of the present
House. A member from South Caro
lina takes on an average about forty
drinks a day. He fills his glass to
the brim every time, and tells the
bartender his sight is bad and he can't
tell how much there is in the glass
until it gets too full. Like all the
Southern members, he alwaye drinks
whiskey, and he takes it straight."
Who is it? Certainly not Col.
Evins. If he ever drinks he does it
BO infrequently that it has never told
on him in the memory of man. It
certainly is net Col. Aiken. There is
not red enough in his face to hang a
suspicion on. Col. Richardson is a
true blue copper riveted Presbyterian.
