The many acquittals throughout

The Newbeny Herald and News
nominated a ticket of Reform edi
tors for the State offices. It would
be hard to find an abler or worth
ier set than they. They do more
work and know more about the
Reform movement than anybody
else and get less for it. If it wasn't
for the faithful zealous work of
the Reform papers the Reform
party would never have been suc
cessful. The great trouble with
giving editors office is that they
invariably take dyspepsia from
high living-Aiken Times.
A Petersburg, Ya., telegram tells
of a shocking case of the burial of
a lady while still alive. The sup
posed corpse was sent there from
some other places for interment,
and her husband having no lot of
his own in the cemetery had tho
body temporarily buried in the lot
of a friend. Recently in removing
the body for re-interment, the hus
band had the coffin opened and
found the body with the face down
ward and hacds'clasped in the hair.
If the grave could tell its story it
would tell of thousands of human
beings who are buried alive.
To be truly successful a mau
must be able to rise after failure.
The general whcset campaign is
commenced amid a series of disas
ters, but who, nevertheless, by re
pairing his mistake, concentrating
his forces, and watching his oppor
tunities, carrier triumph ont of de
feat is the truly great captain.
The statesman or orator whose
maidon effort was covered with
confusiou and ridicule, but who
resolves-in spite, or rather be
lause of this-that he will force
nis opponents to hear and to re
spect him shows that he is a great
man. The ability and the readi
ness to learn from failure is the
secret of success.
In North Carolina the convicts
are worked on farms owned or
rented by the State. They num
bered last year about 12,000, of
whom more than three-forths were
actually employed in farm labor;
124 only were kept in the prison
proper. The convicts employed
upon the farms earned $213,000,
and the cost of keoping them was
$163,000. They produced 00,000
bushels of corn, 1,191 bales of cot
ton, 3,200 bushels of wheat, 12,002
bushels of peanuts, 40,000 bushels
of pess, and .10,000 pounds of pork.
The Buperintendont in his report
says that he sees no prospect of
convicts being employed in North
Carolina otherwise than on farms,
which indicates that the present
system is generally approved.
Judge Brawler has commenced
the work of purifying the United
States Court at Greenville, which
under Simonton, had become a
stench in the nostrils of the people,
especially in the matter of "hired"
witnesses, and cases made up by
the deputy marshals for the rev
enue that were in these cases for
themselves and the witnesses.
The income tax is not so novel
a tax as many suppose. It exists
in several States of the Union ;
Virginia, by a law passed in 1884,
taxes all incomes in excess of $600
a year. Massachusetts collects an
income tax on all incomes over
$2,000 a year. Pennsylvania taxes
the net incomes of all corporations
in that State. New York, Connec
ticut, and North Carolina also have
au income tax.
President Cleveland has ap
pointed John P. Hunter, of Lan

Marshal of the district of South
j Carolina. Hunter has been serving
as sheri il' of his county for the
past two years, having been elected

to the marshal's baton, however, is
due to Senator Butler's efforts and

Governor Tillman was interview
ed by a correspondent of the News
& Courier last Monday on the
matter of constables having the
right to search private residences
without a warrant, and for the
benefit of readers we reproduce
what passed between the Governor
"Governor Tillman this morning
was talking about the dispensary
law and especially the recent re
ferences in the News and Courier
to the clause with reference to the
right to search privata houses and
what the intention of the legislature
was. He remarked tLiat he was
not inclined to take any notice of
anything that was said in this
particular paper. He. however,
went on to say: "When thc bill was
on its passage it was announced by
the opposition pass that tho right
to search private houses was in the
bill. It never was there. It never
was intended to be there and no
body wants it there. (I mean the
right to search houses without a
warrant.) This falsehood is being
spead by the opposition papers
and it is for no other purposo than
to prejudice the people. If we find
a pei son selling whiskey from his
privats house we will pursue the
law, and get out a warrant and
;earch the house.
"BRUTAL AND UNJUST."
A few weeks ago an Edgefield
constable was arrested in Yorkville
upon the charge of being drunk
?.ud disorderly, tried by Mayor
Moore of that city, convicted and
Since this trial and conviction,
however, the Mayor has, for reasons
best known to himself, written to
Gov. Tillman that he did not be
lieve the constable was drunk, and
has remitted the fine, notwith
standing the fact that he found
him guilty on the trial. We have
the testimony taken before the
Mayor's court in which he used the
following brulal language towards
thc prisoner who he now says
was not guilty :
"I don't soe that it was anything else

Since this trial and ihe confes
sion of the Mayor that he was
wrong, the said Mayor has resigned
his office, the cause for which, as
given to us by a private note from
Yorkville Witten by an anti, xs as
"The real cause of the above re- j
eiguatiou is because of the publi
cation of the proceedings of the
trial showing the brutal and un
just treatment of 1). 1). Padgett,
dispensary constable. Peoplu of
the town refused to voto for him
and country people threatened to
ride him on a rail."
These are the facts in Ibis caso
and right-minded people can draw
their own conclusions.

Couductor Raborn Killed in a
Conductor J. H. Raborn met
with a sudden and untimely end
yesterday morning. Three hours
after he received his injuries he
was dead. It isa sad case and to
day a heart-broken mother mourns
the loss of a faithful and pro
missing son. Mr. Raborn was a
young man of about twenty-eight
or twenty-nine years and for some
time past has been a conductor of
a freight train on the Columbia
and Greenville road. Saturday
night he was on his run to Co
lumbia, the train of freight cars
was stopped at Greenwood and
not long afterwards it was dis
covered that the train had broken
in three parts. While jostling over
the crossings that the conductor
Raboru's first impulse was to get
the rear section under control.
While engaged m working the
brakes, the second section came in
to collision with the rear cars and
knocked Mr. Raborn to the track.
Before he bad time to recover the
cars had passed over him. When
he was picked up, it was found
that his legs had both been broken
that his arm bad been broken be
tween the shouldor blade and the
elbow and that his skull had been
crushed. The accident occurred
at 5:15 a. m., and at 8:30 Mr.
Raborn died. The best of atten
tion was given him, but without
avail. The remains were b/ough t
to Columbia and will to-day be
send to Johnston, where they will
be interred. Mr. Raborn leave?
a mother, 'who lives about twelve
miles from; Johnston. Mr. Raborn
was a Knight of Pythias. \
This is the only accident that
bas been reported on any of the
roads on account of the storm.
HOW THE ACCIDENT OCCURRED. ,
GREENWOOD, Fro. 25.-There
was a terrible accident here this
morning about 5 o'clock, m which
J. H. Raborn, freight conductor on
the Colmbia and Greenville road,
1 lost his life. It seems that his
train broke in two places, and
while Raborn was trying kn arrest
the middle section, which was
running back, he was caught and
horribly mangled. Both legs were
crushed, his right arm broken and
his head badly bruised, the skull
thought to be fractured. The body
was cared for by me mau r^sion
ties and the Knights of Pylhias
and was shipped to Columbia.

Texas farmers have discovered
wonderful prossibillities in ? the
sweet potato, A recent bulletin of
the agricultural experiment station
in the State shows to what great
importance the sweet potato has
attained. The cotton crop of Texas
covers 4,520,310 acres, and is worth
$69,439,476 ; the corn crop covers
3,166,353 acres, and is worth $28,
429,125 ; the wheat crop cov? rs 442.
337, acres and is worth $5.244,30;
the sweet potato crop covers 29,92S
acres and is worth $1,503.764;
This shows that the valuation of
each crop per acre is : cotton $15.
36, corn $8,94, wheat $11,88, sweet
potatoes $50,24. The cost of grow:
ing an acre of either of these crops
is about the same.
"This is a magnificent showing
for the 6weet potato. There is
hardly any limit to the demand

NOTICE TO INVENTORS.
There was never a time in the his
tory of our country when the demand
for inventions and improvements in
the arts and sciences generally was so
great as now. The conveniences of
mankind in the factory and work
shop, the household, on the farm, and
in official life, require continual ac
cessions to the appurtenances and
implements of each in order to save
labor, time, and expense. Tho political
change in the administrai ion of IIR>
government does not affect the progress
of the American inventor, wi o being
cn the alert'and ready to perceive the
existing deficiencies, does not perm i I
the affairs of government to deter him
from quickly conceiving the remedy to
overcome existingdiscrepencies. Too
great care cannot be exercised in choos
uga competent and skillfully attor
ney to prepare and prosecute an ap
plication for patent. Valuable intersts
have been lost and destroyed in in
numerable instances by the employ
ment of incompetent counsel, and
especially is this advice applicable to
those who adopt the "No patent, no
pay'' system. Inventors who entrust
their business to Uris class of attorney;
do so at imminent risk, as the breadth
and strength of the patent is never
considered in view of a quick endeavor
to get an allowance and obtain th?
fee then due. THE PRESS CLAIMS
