Even admitting that we wei
badly governed, and acknowledj
ing the fact that the old set are a
out of office, and that the horrib]
dispensary law interferes with ou
whiskey guzzling, is there an
sense or reason lu forever holdin
up our grievances to the publi
and making efforts to ruin th
character and good name of Sout
Carolina? Didn't w? long sine
learn that it was bad policy to was
our linen in public?
Every Carolinian loves Sout!
Carolina and is proud of her re
cord in all that goes to shed lustr
on the fame and glory of a peopl
who are as proud and as chivalrou
as any that ever lived.
Theu why this eternal and ever
lasting fault-finding and Bueerinj

Why the never-ceasing lamen
that we and our family, our set
or our coterie of the Lord's an

Is it done with any insane idee

that they will forsooth vacate and

OFFICIALLY BEE WED BEER
The Palmetto Brewing: Company
to lie Run by the State.
New.-, and Courier,
The State of South Carolina now
has an official brewery in which
supplies of beer for the dispen
saries throughout the State will be
manufactured. The plant of the
Palmetto Brewing Company of
Charleston will hereafter be run
by the State.
At the meeting of the State
board of control held yesterday
Governor Tillman offered the fol
lowing resolutions, that were pre
pared by him, which were adopt
"Reso ved that the couuty board
of control of Charleston be au
thorized to establish a dispensary
at or near the Palmetto brewery,
and that the said dispensary, in
addition to selling liquors, shall
be distributing depot for all beer
sold in Charleston, other than ex
"Resolved second. That said dis
penser may under rules adopted
by the county board, and approved
by the State board, use the wagons
and employes of the brewing com
pany in handling the beer made
by said Palmetto Brewing Com
pany in the city and shipping the
same to all points outside the city
to other dispensers, when ordered
by the State commissioner."
This saves the brewery company
from ceasing their operations as
they would have been obliged to do
according to the new dispensary
law. A great deal of red tape
mat tor was gone through with be
fore the deal was affected. Rules
to govern tho running of the brew
er}' will be prepared by Mr. Wi
Gibbes Whaley, chairman of the
Charleston county board of con
trol, and the State board will act
Governor Tillman says the board
was forced io make such arrange
ments to protect tho interest of the
State. The brewery will be ruu by
the company under the control of
the State board. Weekly sutile
meiits will bu made between the
board and the corni'any.

Skeleton Unearthed on the Field
of the Crater.
PETERSBURG, Va., Jan. 16.-Last
evening while Timothy Griffith,
owner of the Crater farra, in Prince
George county, about one mile ana
a half from Petersburg, was
ploughing up his land directly in
front of the crater, he unearthed
the bodies, or rather the skeletons,
of five Union soldiers. The skele
tons were all clad in the Federal
uniform. One one of the soldiers
was found a cartridge box filled
with cartridges, and in his pockets
a photograph and bottle of ink.
There was nothing found by which
the names of the soldiers could be
ascertained. They are, however,
believed to have belonged to a
Massachusetts regiment, und took
part in the Crater fight.
