Chris;eui Temperance l.'nioo.
in all sf <-f ?o?s of our broad and bl eased
country. North, South. East and West,
the great cause of tem parante is making
steady prog tees-iii t?ir form of prohibi
tion iu ?Mu?Staha?.hiKhilconseinsorae,
and local opiion in others. And weare
glad to say thaUhe.-?piScopal Church of
America is ??^tinj ih?good fight with
uplifted arm.^ add dauntless crest. The
Triennial Convention of the said Church
is now in session in Philadelphia; and
the mother church in England is repre
sented by the Lord Bishop of Rochester.
or.eof the most distinguished prelates
of all Great Britain. In answering the
address of .welcome tendered him by tho
Conveoilofc; tho Bishop of Rochester
conclndetPin these significant woxds:
M Wo may have as many free churches
as "sre please, we may open as many free
libraries as we please, but as long as
the demon pr intemperance haunts onr
bomes/?rim-ches v?u be useless, ser
mons will be useless, "and the efforts of
laymen useless. At St. Louis recentlv
he heard some of the best speaaing he
had ever heard in his life. A man got
np at that meeting stating that all tho
ravages of Aro. civil war, ?fcc , were pot
equal totbevovil caused by intemperance,
"Ii voil wan?to earn the eternal grati
tude oMrue masses von will use your en
ergies and prayers ia thia battle-?gain?t
iutempe*anc?. What he desired and
hoped to see was a thorouchly organized
avstem of temperauce. If the Episcopal
Church of America will throw herself
iuto the strife the blessing of God will
be with her. In conclusion, he said that
the deputies hail his best and most pro
found wishns for the success of the Epis
copal Church. May God aid them, he
said, in an unwearied and indefatigable
effort to evangelize the masses.''
In tho meantime the temperance or
ganizations aro gathering all they^ can
into their respective tolds. A few years
ago a numberof genth menof New York
City, deslrbrrsof promoting temperance,
conceived the idea of what might be
called graded pledges, to suit the differ
ent classes with whom they might come
in contact. Their plan met with success
from the start, and in a little while thou
sands of pereons, embracing all classes
of people, were enrolled on then- books.
And now the Womau's Christian Tem
perauce Union, of Greenville, in our own
State, have adopted the same idea in the
following series^ of pledges, which they
are nov.- circulating for signers among
the people of that city and vicinity :
Pledge, No. 1.-I herein solemnly
promise to abstain from the use of ail
intoxication ikpwrs a? a beverage.
Pledge, No. 2.-I herein pledge my
word of honor .th?t I will not drink al
coholic beverage? in any public place, or
social gathering, where my example
would induce others to drink.
Pledge, i?o, 3.-I herein pledgo my
word of honor that I will not use wine or
any alcoholic beverage on'my table.
Anti-treat Pledge, No. 4-1 herein
promise on nay word of honor not to in
vite others to drink, nor to drink with
others on their invitation, nor to pay for
such drinks at any public place or club.
Membership Pledge, No. 3-1 herein
solemnly promise, God helping me, to
abstaini?ir^all distilled, fermented and
mait liquors, mending wiue and cider,
and to employ all proper means to dis
courage the use of, and traffic in the same
While all of these pledges are good, as
our brave and able cotemporary, tho
Charlotte Journal-Observer well says
the fourth is worthy of special attention,'
for if generally adopted it would put an
end to the habit of treating so common
In tbifvcojantry, and from which so much
confirmed dissipation has followed. It
would practically put an end to the bar
room. There are thousands of young
?~ESn rn nearly every ci|y of America to
day who drink liquor more or less to
excess who took their first drink of li
quor as a treat. Aside from its baneful
results it is a senseless custom, which
has found favor in no country but this
we m?rn tho custom of promiscuous
treating, standing up at a bar, hastily
swallowing some fiery liquid, and within
a few minutes repeating, not because the
drinkers waut it, but because each
wishes to reciprocate tho courtesy ex
tended by the other, simply because he
dreads being considered penurious in
failing to treat after having accepted an
invitation: to drink. Many a man has
gone into a bar room sober to take one
drink and staggered out drunk with a
doze^under his shirt The successful
propagation of this pledgo will do more
effective work for the cause of temper
ance than prohibition, local option and
all the other pledges combined.

Rake I? the Poll Tax Closely and
We call the attei.tion'of our Treasurer
and our people to the following portion
of an Act entitled "An Act to raise sup
plies and make appropriations for the
fiscal year commencing November 1st,
"SECTION 1. (Extract), a * . ? Should
any person fail or refuse tp pay said poll
tax, ne shall be guilty of a misdemean
or, and, on conviction thereof before any
Trial !ustice or other Court having ju
risdiction of the same, sh:.Jl be punished
by a fine, which shall not exceed $10, to
gether with the costs of said suit; or by
imprisonment in the County jail for u
period not exceeding thirty days."
The poll tax-is a very important par!
of the school fund, and it is of the ut
most moment that lt should be closely
and conscientiously collected. We hope
that it will be collected without difficul
ty, and without any penalty attaching
At the same time, if there should be i
large list of delinquents, the purposes tr
which the polL? are, applied aro cr toe
great impm tance to permit of any fail
ure to enforce the law. There are ovei
seven thousand voters in Edgefield coun
ty; "and since tho registration law ha;
been in operation a great many partiel
who have heretofore escaped notice hav<
been placed on the list. Consequent^
no one who has voted need hope that hi
will be permitted to exercise the fran
ehise, and at the same time throw on otb
er people all the burden of taxation.

Mayor Courtney, of Charleston, whos

Edgefield last week, as the guest of Mn

purpose bf conferring with Mrs. Piel

in regard to the future status of Sout
Carolina's room at Mt. Vernon-the ol

Courtney's large heart is no less in th]
patriotic-historical work than that of th
noble and devoted Vice-Regent, wh<
like a lofty chatelaine of the feudal age
so earnestly strives to keep bright n<

That we have again inspected the Pub
lic Offices and the Public Buildings of
our County. We found the Court House?

needed in the Jury rooms and in the
Judge's retiring room. The Jail is a
model of cleanliness and neatness ; and
in excellent repair, with the exception
of the windows which need many panes
of glass. We found no bedding on hand,

We have looked into the School Com
missioner's Books, and found thom very
well kept, and quite accurate in so far
as we had leisure to.verify his calcula
tions by investigating quite a number of
pages taken at random. We found also
that duplicates of Pay Certificates issued
to Teachers correspond with the records
in said Books.
We found the SherifPs Office in good
order. The following moneys were
found in his olfice :
Edward Lynch vs. M. H. Eich

J. M. Sullivan et al. vs. W. M.

At the Poor House we found thirteen

The recommendations made at the June
Term are being carried out. The prem

Among said inmates, we found a female
child about ten years cid. We recom
mend that this girl be sent to the State
Orphan Asylum, as we do not think a
County Poor House a proper place for
children of this age.
We find the Office of the Judge of Pro
bate, as heretofore, in good order, and
We find the Clerk's Office in excellent
condition. The following moneys are on

From the Office of County Treasurer
and of County Auditor, there is no im
portant information in addition to what
has already b?en laid before the public.
Our Auditor's labors for 18.83 will be
complete some day this week.
We have examined the records of the
County Commissioners and approved of
them with this exception : Tn their min
nies, we find a contract for lumber and
building a bridge on a road which is not
a public highway. It has been failed to
the attention of this Grand Jury that
certain roads in the western part of the
coumy have not been worked in three
years There are certain bridges on thet^

Hou.se, wherv? several accidents have ra

we recommend that lumber iustead of
poles be used. We again call the Com
missioners' attention to our previous
recommendation that a Book ol* Record
be kept in their Office for complaints as
to roads and bridges.
The County Commissioners have fur
nished the mileage of public roads in
the County, except Wise and Blocker
Townships. Total number of miles 81?,
number of bridges, 39, and one ferr}*.
Our people have been trying, for hun
dreds of years, to destroy the shady
woods overspreading the landscapes, and
now they benin to wonder why the dry
weather prevails more and moro each
succeeding ten years. By transplanting
some millions of trees where forests and
rains had heretofore been unknown, the
Egyptians have succeeded in bringing
down upon their thirsty fields frequent
and refreshing showers. Let every
stream in our State be lined with trees,
and then the neighboring vales and hills,
by reason of regular rains, will yield
exuberant crops aa in the days of yore.
We recommend that a stringent law bo
passed for the protection and increase
of our timber.
The Iraffic in seed cotton, from the
knowledge of this Grand Jury, being of
such extent and injurious to the interest
and morals of our community, that wo
would respectfully suggest that, a law
