There must be something radi
.cally wrong somewhere when a
judge of the Supreme Court of
Pennsylvania resigns his position
to become the receiver of a rail
road. We in South Carolina are
not up on the receivership busi
> ness nor do we really understand
how these creatures of the Federal
Courts get such fine pickings from
the railroads. Receiver is the
proper title; they receive much
and pay out little, and even fight
the. payment of the taxes to the
State under whose charters and by
^'whose permission they are allowed
to live, move, and have their being.
RIGHT KIND OF A JUDGE.
Here are ?orne remarks made
by Justice Lynn,, of the.first (New
York) district co?rt. South Caro
lina wonld like to have just such
a Federal Judge : ?
The case was that of an insur
ance comyany, in which the latter
attempted to avoid paying about
$150 on a policy, on the argument,
" that an answer to one of the formal
questions made in the policy was
not honest. Justice Lynn said :
I feel impelled, from the facts
disclosed in this' case, and in the
many similar cases which have
been brought to my attention, to
make personal allusion to the de
fendant as a corporation unworthy
public confidence. Its agents could
fitly be characterized as an un
scrupulous body of vipers who
prey npon suffering humanity,
cajoling the poor of our city while
living and then robbing relatives
who seek to recover on policies.
If our courts, because of the in
genious tricks of agents and law
yers, are . powerless to protect the
-poor ignorant, who are mainly
the patrons of such institutions
and the victims of- their vicious
methods, then the Legislature
should provide proper safeguards.
When corporations which have
grown fat and are able to erect
gil dod palaces out of the aggre
gated dimes taken from the toilers
of our city, endeavor by trick and
device to avoid their honest ob
ligations, the law should stand as
a shield against such wrongs.
EEGEFIELD IN COLUMBIA.
The Y. M. C. A. Convention
* which held its annual session in I
Columbia last week came to an
end on Sunday night last. Mr.
John Lake, of Edgefield, waB ap- j

On Sunday evening the services
were conducted in the various

"At the Washington Street

will pour my spirit upon all flesh ;

Reducing; Cotton Acreage.
. --- - ?
The Baltimore Manufacture
Record hopes that satifactc
resulte will be achieved at t
. Memphis- meetingoTTh&~Cbll
Planters7 Association this week.
- Our, contemporary holds tl
the cotton growing industry
now in a critical position, a:
urges the planters to unite
producing a small crop that w
bring a high price. It says :
"If the crop could be absolute
regulated in accordance with t
acreage planted it might not be
difficult matter to insure ju
about the quantity desired, b
weather conditions are an &
important factor which can neith
be foretold nor avoided. Cons
quentJy, to be on the safe side,
will be necessary, in estimatii
the requisite acreage, to take in
consideration the probable viel
The average for the past s ?vent?e
years has been 177 pounds, or 2
5-5 bale per acre. During that tin
the yield for four years exceede
208 pounds per acre; for thre
years it was between 180 and 2C
pounds ; for four years ? betwee
170 and 180 pounds ,- for thre
years between 160 and 170 pound
and for three years leas than 16
pounds, lt would seem, thei
that 177 pounds would be a tai
ave* -e. On this basis 19,000,00
acres would give a crop of 9,372,
000 bales, but if the yield shouL
be the same as in 1890-91 tb
crop would be 7,500,000 bales, anr.
if the yield were that of 1891-9!
the crop would be 7,920,090 balee
The present crop is variously
estimated as grown on from 19
000,000 to 18,000,900 acres, and i
the latter figure is accepted ai
more nearly correct, it is evident
that, in order to insure a croj.
of not over 7,000,000 bales for th?
coming season, it will be d?sira
ble to make a reduction of from
10 to 15 per cent in the acreage
planted this year."
The next crop should be so re
gulated as to fill the wants of
3pinners, and yet not leave such
a, surplus as to burden the succeed
ing year. The problem is how to
secure general co-operation. Grave
ionbts exist as to whether the
?onvention'9 influence will be
itrong enough to accomplish

Funny Letter Received by Go ver
TUlraan From Iowa.
The fame pf Governor Tillman's
fight for the rights of i he State
with the railroads has probably
reached every cornor of the country.
He received yesterday a unique
letter from Iowa, which is given
exactly as it was written :

The young man was talking to
a very pious acquaintance of hie.

time. You Bee there was somebody
playing the piano in tho back
parlor, and Miss Fannie and I
quietly stole out into that big

about a minute I slipped my arm

-'Sir!', and Mis? Prim almost

He was as cool a? a cucumber.
"I said," he went on, '-that I
.lipped my arm about her waist
aud she put her soft white hand
on my shoulder-"

Miss Prim, "but I cannot permit?

herself than to permit such liber

not to tell of them.
The young man snickered.
'.Of course, of course," he said,
"but wait till j ou hear it all."
"No, sir; no, sir," she protested.
"I have heard too much already."
"Why, there-isn't anything

The Popular Temperamemt.
If Gen. Wade Hampton is cor
rectly reported to have "said that
the action of the States authorities
in connection with the railroads
had aroused a very strong feeling
of opposition to Governor Till
man and his followers thr^r.eh
out the State which may result in
the organization of a very powerful
opposition to vhe Governor," and
by this he meant to imply the
comment that is made on it, that
"This sentiment is not confined to
any particular section of the State
and if it continnes to- grow and
prosper, as it has during the last
two weeks there is a very strong
probability that Governor Tillman
and his followers will be over
thrown at the next election." Then
the old hero was never more
mistaken in his life. Whatever
sentiment of injustice was occas
ioned by the Administration's
originol move agaiust the railroads
has been more than counterbalan
ced-it has been obliterated from
the public mind by the most recent
decision of the courts reducing
the proud State of South Caro
lina from her long boasted and
fondly imagined sovereignty to a
petitioner at the doors of the
Federal courts for permission to
collect her' taxes. The railroads
which were parties to the suit
were justifiable, of course, in win
ning-whatever technical advantage
But if it be imagined that on
the decision of the United States
Court jp these cases any pol?tica)
advantage is to be gained among
the people,it shows a lamentable
