THE VOICE THAT CALLS.
Where forlorn a onsets flare and fade
- - Oh desolate sea and lo?elysand.
Out of the silence and the shade
? What ls the voice of strange command
CaHing you still, as fr i en d calls friend.
With lo vo that cannot brook delay.
To rise and follow the ways that wend
Over the hills and far away?
Hark, in the city, street on street *
A roaring reach of death and lifo,
? Of vortices ?that clash and fleet
And ruin In appointed strife;
I Bark to it calling, calling clear.
Calling until you cannot stay
From dearer things than your own most
. Over the hills and far away.
Ont of tho sound of ebb and flow.
Out of the sight of lamp and a tar,
It calls you where the good winds blow
And the unchanging meadows are;
From faded hopes and hopes agleam,
Itcalls you, calls you night and day.
Beyond the dark into the dream
-_Over th? hills and far away.

prevails throughout the country,
and tho average temperature is
about 21 above zero. London is
buried under a dense fog and it is

CHABLESTON, S.C., Dec. 27.-A|c
blizzard struck Charleston this
morning and for the first time
within the past fifteen years tho
house tops were covered with a thin
coating of snow and sleet. The
mercury averaged about three or
four degrees below the freezing
point during the day, and pedes
trians not being accustomed to ice
had a hard time getting along the
sidewalks. The orange trees in
the city are injured somewhat and
v will probably bear only one crop
this year. They usually bear two
crops. Planting and truck farm
crops aie not far enough advanced
to suffer any damage. Strawberries
-are well protected and the plants
will escape without severe trouble.

snow slide Saturday swept away
the engine house of the narrow
guage mme at Deer Creek and
wrecked the concentrator mill, 500
yards below. Henry Bloss, who
was in the engine house, was in

very heavy and sli des are frequent.
LONDON, Dec. 27.-The steamer
Noordland, New York to Antwerp,
was towed into Queenstown to-day
with her shaft broken and the ves
sel covered with ice. The accident
occurred 400 miles west of Queens
town last Thursday evening. It
was all the pumps could do to keep
the water out of the fire room. The
stt-amer Ohio came along tho next
day and took the Noordland in
tow. The entry into Queenstown
was very difficult.

This editor spent a little while
n the House of Represen? atives of
South Carolina the 7th instant,
Luring the discussion of the

ntion ot our readers.
They are the same old stock ob
ections we have been hearing all
mr live s.
It was rather amusing to hear
me gentleman concluding his
jpeech for the saloon turn preacher.
Se said prohibition was "countrary
:o the genius of Christianity." He
irgued that "the bill it. removing
;emptation would hinder develop
ment of true Christian manhood."
[t is ratuer difficult to treat this
jort of "argifying" seriously. In
the first place we remember he
said there would be more liquors
sold under prohibition than under
license; now he thinks temptation
wrould be removed and Christian
manhood have no opportunity
For development. This caps the
climax. Saloons are needed to
make strong, vigorous Chris
tians. How strange that Paul
Peter, Luther, Wesley, Finney
md men of their kind have never
caught on to this noble idea till
the sage of Richland appears on
the scene and gives them a "patent
process" for the strengthening of
Christian manhood ! The Church
must change her tactics and recom
mend the saloons with the prayer
meeting and the Sunday school.
We would suggest to the gentle
man that he errs grievously if he
locks his doors at night. He
mould assist in developing the
honest of the country. We may
?ot need the Decalogue any longer
?ince prohibition is contrary ;to
the genius of Christianity, and*

The Panama Hat.
People often wonder at the
price demanded for a genuine
Panama straw hat, and seem dis
posed to consider a man crazy who
will pap $5 or $10 for such a head
piece, but they forget that a
Panama hat of the best quality
demands the choicest materials
in its composition, and requires
the labor ofa man sometimes for
several weeks. Once done, how
aver, the Panama straw hat is
practically indestructble, save by
fire. It will bear being thrown
about, you may sit on it far half a
clay, and it will resume its orginal
form as easily although it were
made of rubber. It will last and
look well for a dozen years, and
though so tcugh, is as light as
though made of feathers.

HILL AND BLAINE.
THE ONE STATESMAN DEAD, THE
OTHER PROBABLY DYING.
An Interesting Review of an
Event Which Goes Down Into
History-The Maine Man
0 and the Georgian.
Hill is dead and his adversary
Blaine will soon be'with him.
These two names suggest a
thrilling chapter of American

It was a memorable occasion and
the eloquent speech of that his

Georgians delight to recall that
celebrated tilt, for that was the
day when '^Georgia had the floor."
It was the hour when her represen,
tative was equal to his Opportu
nity, and rising in his seat, which,
was destined from that very, mo
ment to become historic, he dared
in behalf of the Southern people
to accept the challenge of the

gladiators they were and well
equipped for their great tourney.
They represented the civilization of
two great sections and each of them
impersonated the strength and the
prowess of his constituency. It
was another great sectional battle
-another engagement between the
North and South. The result of
that contest was in the highest de
gree important, as settling forever

Hill, the stalwart form of Mr.
Blaine has slowly yielded to the
blighting influence of time and
sorrow until now it resembles an
old ruin, a stately castle tottering
upon the brink of dibsolution.
The fatal disease which has set
the mark upon Mr. Blaine may
spare him for yet a few days in its
grim pity, but the conviction has
long since flashed over his own
mind, as well as that of the coun
try, that his "path of glory" has
almost reached that dread inevita
He has been a man of great
tribulations and no one in public
life has met with the disappoint
ments and the heart-breaking sor
rows that have fallen to the lot of
Mr. Blaine, but with that the pres
ent article is little concerned. It
is Blaine the magnetic orator, the
champion of the great Republican
party, who was met and overcome
by the eloquence and logic of Ben
Hill, that forms the topic now un
Congress had been in session for
only a few weeks and was the first
Democratic Congress that had ever
met since the war. Mr. Hill had
qualified as a representative and
taken his oath of office on the 8th
of December, 1875.
His reputation as a fearless ora
tor and as a brilliant adversary in
debate rested upon his record in
the Confederate Congress.
He had yet to prove himself in
the higher parliament of a re
united country and while he had
many friends and ardent admirers
who predicted for him a brilliant
career in the American Congress it
remained to be tested by actual ex
periment whether their esteem was
based- upon solid grounds or
whether they were merely senti
mental opinions that were due to
his agreeable personality.
This occasion was not by any
means slow in arriving, and the
same political providence that had
cast the decision of ballots ml
favor of Mr. Hill, soon provided
an opportunity for tho display of
his magnificent leadership.
It was the memorable occasion
already referred to-the 10th of
Mr. Blaine had long before this
acquired a national reputation as
a skillful politician and a most
accomplished debater. He was the
acknowledged leader of the Rs
publican party on the floor of the
house, and was a man of com
manding appearance. His very
personality inspired a feeling of
respect and admiration among his
sympathizers, while a feeling of
awe- and apprehension was*excited
in.the bosoms of thoee-who differed
with him in regard to the princi
ples which'-'he advocated and .who
belonged to the opposite^arty; - .
He had been the speaker of the
preceding Congress . and bad
greatly endeared himself to th?
Southern people by his ardent
espousel of. their.interest when the
"force bill" was advocated.
It ill prepared them for his tac
tics the year following and Avheri
he assumed the role of antagonist
and aimed the dart of an enemy
at the person pf their .venerated
leader Mr. Davis", it occasioned
universal surprise throughout the
The discussion in the house of
representatives: was on the subject
of general amnesty to the South-,
ern people. Mr. Blaine had moved
to strike out the name of Jefferson
Davis on account of his alleged
connection, with the prison out?
rages at Andersonyille, Ga.
Mr. Blaine had selected his own
time and had carefully arranged
his argument. His. denunciation
of Mr. .Davis was extremely bitter
and his>ferrible arraignment was,
supported by-allthe powers of his
great intellect. From a sectional,
point of view the effort was simply
superb and the character of Mr;
Davis was held up before the
American Congress as that of ?a
sup?rhumap tyrant. He painted,
him in,the most terrific aspect as
only a'masterly imagination and
a wonderftil eloquence could do
without the aid of truth and the
facts of history.
Certainly no one would dare to
reply to such an arraignment. It
was a great political outrage, of
course, but who was willing to sac
rifice himself by plunging into the
The eyes of Mr. Blaine during
the delivery of his argument were
fixed upon the person of Mr. Hill;
He seemed to have singled hiriji

have to make the attempt.
Great enthusiasm followed the
expiration of every sentence and a
season of the wildest excitement
reigned in the<house of representa
tives. Blaine was making the
speech of his life, and his talents
had all along been slowly ripening
for this super-intellectual effort.
Finally the great orator sat down
and the vast assemblage was left
to gaze in astonishment at the elo
quent hero of the hour.
When Mr.. Blaine sat down Mr.
Hill, without a moment's prepara
tion, arose to reply. He was.pre
vented, however, from obtaining
tho recognition of the chair by
reason of the interference of other
members. Finally he was recog
nized, after which the body ad
journed with the understanding
that Mr. Hill was to have the floor
the following morning.
During the night several of the
members attempted to dissuade
him. He was resolute, however,
and had fully made up his mind to
reply to Mr. Blaine.
The announcement in the mean
time that Mr. Hill, of Georgia, had
been recognized and would ad
dress the house in reply to Mr.
Blaine's attack the following day,
was flashed from one end of the
country to the other and caused
geneial rejoicing throughout the

both crowded. Many of the mem

Mach has been said about electricity
as a factor for de s true ti ven esa in the va
rious gyrating storm clouds known as
cyclones, drechoes and tornadoes. In
all of this voluminous mass of so called
scientific opinions and deductions one
fact teems to have been entirely over
looked-viz., the almost resistless force
bf wind when moving with high ve
locity. When the velocity is hut fifty
miles an hoar the pressure of air in mo
tion is equal to twelve pounds to the
square foot, and when'this velocity rises
to 100 miles per hour its force rises to
the equivalent of 49.2 pounds to the
square foot, the augmentation of force
being always proportional to the square
of the velocity.
It needs no further elaboration or am
plification of this statement to convey
to the intelligent reader an idea of the
monstrous mechanical force which such
a rapid traveling mass of air must have
-a power great enough to tear down
any structure that has yet been built by
man, or to uproot whole forests of the
largest trees now growing on the sur

throughout the West during the
late campaign was never exceeded
in malignant violence, even by
tue Communists who inspired the]
great revolution in . France." This

alfairs. The Democrats attribute
it to legislation and very artfully
imbued that idea into the minds
of the people. I do not believe
this, nor does any sensible man.
The whole trouble lies in our sys
tem of government. The Repub
lican form of government places
more power in the hands of a few
than is possible under the
monarchical systems of Europe.
We are brought to believe that
universal suffrage is not a panacea
for all ills.
MILLIONAIRES TO BLAME.
"There is a strong and growing
feeling against the system that
makes the accumulation of the
such vast fortunes as those of the
Goulds, Vanderbits, Huntingtons
and others twssible. The people
are becoming restless and the
millionaires are in a measure to
blame for this condition of affairs
They have by tLeir insolent parade
and ostentatious display arrayed
tho people against them.
"We are now brought face to.
face with the same condition of
social affairs that brought about
the French revolution and unlesi
a speedy remedy is found the peo
ple will rise in their wrath and
wage a terrific warfare on the
wealthy class. I am a statesman
out of a job, but I have watched
the trend of public opinion and am
far from pleased with the outlook.
I do not look for any change in
our system until the people force
it upon us. I believe a revolution
is ripening and will come sooner
or later. It only sleeps, awaiting
LOOKS FORA REVOLUTION. C
"The first financial panic we]
encounter such as that of 1853
will, in my opinion, precipitate
a revolution which will not be
easily quelled, and may result in
the overthrow of our system of
government. The powder and
dynamite are ready. When the
opportunity arrives they will be
used with fatal effect. The time
is ripe for revolution. The question
is, have the people a leader? An
able, unscrupulous man could
wield an awful power.
"One means we might take to
prevent such a misfortune would
be by enacting strict laws regulat
ing immigration. The Anglo
Saxon people are not Communists.
Left to themselves the American
people would make the best of
misfortune, and live ujj^to the
maxim, 'root hog or di e,' "
