NEWSPAPER SUBSCRIPTION LAWS.
Few readers or publishers of papers
fully and clearly understand the laws
governing subscriptions. The decisions
of the United States Court on this sub
ject are :
1. Subscribers who do not give ex
press notice to the contrary are con- j
sidered as wishing to renew their sub
2. If subscribers order the discon
tinuance of thair periodicals, the pub
lisher may continue to send them un
til all arrearages are paid.
3. If subscribers neglect or refuse to
take their periodicals from the post
office to which they are directed, they
are responsible until they have settled
their dills and ordered them discon
4. If subscribers move to other
places without informing the publish
er, and the papers are sent to the
former address, they are held respon
5. The courts have decided that re
fusing to take periodicals from the
office, or removing and leaving them
uncalled for, is prima facie evidence
of intentional fraud.
6. If subscribers pay in advance they
are bound to give notice at the end of
the time if they do not wish to con
tinue taking it; otherwise the publish
er is authorised to send it, and the
subscriber will be responsible ' until an
express notice, with payment of all
arrearages, is sent to publisher.
The latest postal laws are such that
newspaper publishers can arrest any
one for fraud who takes a paper and
refuses to pay it. Under this law the
man who allows his subscription to
run along for sometime unpaid, and
then orders it discontinued, or orders
the postmaster to mark it "refused,"
and have a postal oard sent notifying]
the publishers, lays himself liable
to arrest and fine, the same as for theft.
Gen. Rudolph Seigling, of Char
leston, is dead, He was president
of one of the Charleston city
banks, also of thc News and Cou-j
rier Publishing Company.
From all accounts Ellerbe at the
Lexington meetiug on last Satur
day failed utterly if not ignobly
to hold up his end of the single
tree. The race now seems to be
between John Gary Evans and W
The gubernatorial phases change
from time to time, even from day
to day. Three weeks ago Ellerbe
was leading, to-dav, since his col
lapse at the Lexington meeting, he
lags way behind and W. D. Evans j
takes his place.
-Iziar ~was~e}?cted to Congress
from the first district over his com
petitor Stokes by a majority of j
four er five hundred. The vote
throughout the district was very
light, not more than half the voters
going to the polls. ?
Some of the anti papers say that
if he does not receive the nomina
tion in convention, John Gary
Evans will run anyway in the gen
eral primary, but we do not be
lieve it, but that with them the
wish is father to the thought.
The question of railroad Re
ceivers seems to be attracting]
national attention. The New York
World, one of the most influential
newspapers in this country, de
nominates them "costly sinecures.
South Carolina does not seem tobe
the only State that is cursed by
railways in the hands of Receivers
Should President Cleveland veto
the Bland bill those democrats
who are now enjoying the fruits of j
a democratic administration, can
prepare themselves to give way to
republicans after two years. The
people are becoming tired of so
much delay and tom foolery, and j
if the party whom they put inj
power does not give them relief j
they will vote for some one el?e
A correspondent of the Colleton
Courier says : "The throttle value
of desolation has been thrown wide
open to annihilate and utterly de
stroy the liberties of tho people
and bind with steelish fetters of
servitude our last vestige of hope
for relief." All ve have to say
about the man that jerked that
throttle valve open is that he ought
to have his head sawed off. We
bet $5 he's a pluttercrat.
The great religious revival
"which has swept over the eastern
and Central States has extended
to Washington D. C., where Moody
and Sankey are holding a aeries
of meetings. They attract audiences
drawn from every class. A Wash
ington correspondent writes :
"Justices Strong and Harlan one
night after night on the platform
and join in the exercises. Senator
Peffer has been an active particip
ant. Leaders of society sit side by
side with -department clerks and
saleswomen under the ?pell of the
songand oratory the vibrating
chorus, the echoing paryers and
the appeals of the white-bearded
speaker. It is a phenomenon which
Washington will long discuss,
and the effects of which will doubt
less remain for years after the
twofamous evangelists have pass
ed from the scene of their labors.
The elections last fall and the
more recent ones in New York and
Pennsylvania show very clearly
that the current sets strongly
against the Democracy.-Co
"There is no good reason why
Mr. Clevaland should veto the
Blind coinage bill. It is not sub
ject to the objections so strongly
urged against the Sherman bill.
Of course not, but he'll veto it
all the same.
What sort of Democrats are
those 55 northern democrats that
veted with the republicans against
the Bland seigniorage bill? Are
they in accord with the platform
of their party which decided for
the equal use of both metals as

DISPENSARY DID IT.
The Colleton Courier of last
week in commentiag on the court
It is also worthy of note in
this connection that the criminal
docket at the recent term of the
court was very much lighter than
it has been for a number of terms.
Whether this decrease in crime
and consequent saving of money
expended for holding court to the
tax payers of the county be directly
attributable to the operation of
the dispensary law or not is, of
course, a matter of opinion, but
one thing is certain that the dis
pensary was somewhere around
when the remarkable and consider
able decrease in this county oc
HICOKALORUM AND LO
After along fight, through many
trials and tribulations,Tillman has
gained the victory in the railroad
Judge Simonton says in his de
cree, of which we publish a synop
? sis on our outside, that the assess
ment of railroad property is not
excessive, that the taxes must be
paid for the past three years in
full, penalties and all, and all the
costs. And yat a few short months
ago this same Judge Simonton was
upholding^ Receiver Chamberlain
in all his resistance to the pay
ment of the very taxes that he now
says are legal and proper. More
over, he actually punishes the
receiver, "the creature of the
court," as the Judge was accus
tomed to call Chamberlaiujby mak
ing him pay all the costs, fordoing
the very thing that he authorized
and encouraged and aided and
abetted him to do. But let that
all pass. Simonton is right now.
It is barely possible that the
bill now pending in Congress lim
iting the power of receivers, and
upon which a favorable report has
just been made by the judiciary
committee, and for which the
country may thank Ben Tillman,
had something to do with the
learned Judge's change of front.
This issue-almost as broad as the
nation-was getting too far-reach

BENNETTSVHLE, March 13.
Ferlilizer Inspector J. L. Hodges,
has exploded a bomb among the
farmers living in the eastern
portion of this county. The State
Line Cotton Seed Oil Mill is lo
cated at Gibson Station, N. C.,
and a majority of the mill's cus
tomers live in this State. They
have purchased and hauled
the meal over the State line to plan
tations without the \State tax tag
and analysis being attached to the
bags. Mr. Hodges has seized
several hundred bags of this meal
and has ordered the farmers not to
molest it until an investigation is
CYLONE IN TEXAS.
A Large Family Almost Exter
LONGVIEW, Tex., March 18.-A
cyclone swept over this place at
3 o'clock this morning, accom
panied by hailstones of immense
size. The greatest fury was six
miles east of here, where if struck
the large country house of John
Cain lately occupied by a large
family of negroes. The house
was in an ancient grove of oaks,
twenty in number. Every one of
them were torn up and piled up
in terrible confusion with dead
fowls, dogs and cows, and five
dead, and eight badly wounded
negroes. Old man Alexander
Lester was found fifty yards away
entirely nude and dead. His wife
Sarah, was pinned under a tree,
mangled and dead. Alexander
Lester, [Jr., was mangled, and is
dead. Robert Lester, nine years
old, was found near a tree without ?
mark of violence, dead. Jaspe
Colins was pinned under a large
oak, snuggly covered, his head
crushed and his limbs broken
dead. Beside him, crawled pain
fully out, his young wife, Mollie
with au ugly hole in the centre of
her forehead. She will recover
Sissy Lester, infant was found in
a fallen tree top with legs and arms
crushed, dead. Silas Johnson
who was visiting, was bruised
from head to foot, but no bone6
broken, will recover. Frank Dizer,
also visiting, leg broken below the
knee, may recover. Dock Sim
mons, who was in bed with
Alexander Lester, Jr., had his
head bruised and will die. O'Dessa
Lester, four years of age, leg and
both arms broken, will die. She
was found many yards away iu
the fields. Arthur Lester, six
years old, leg broken in two places
above and below the knee and
otherwise badly biaised, and will
die. Wilile Lester five years
old, slightly hurt. Says he woke
up a long ways from home in a
field, suffering from hail and rain.
Mr. Ban Hope, a whiteman near
by brought assistance immediately
and the dead and the dying w?:re
taken to a one-room house belong
ing to E. C. Edwards, a son-in
law, where they were laid in bed
in strange confusion, dead, un
counscious, suffering, side by side

ing living for the dead. Drs. Hall
and Wilson were attending the
worst hurt, while the wounded
whc? were able, hobbled, painfully
bleeding about the yard, in the
rain bemoaning the fate of their
Half a mile south of this house,
the house of Mr. Davis a white
ms.n, was completely demolished,
but with the exception of a few
painful bruises, all escaped death.
John Buffett's [wagon, near by,
was blown away and much of it
has not been found yet. The
grainery of Nick Harris, two miles
east was unroofed. The house
af Sallie Jones, colored was wreck
ed and her four-year-old daughter,
Lorilla, was perhaps fatally
wounded by hail stones, A pas
senger train passed just as the
cyclone swept by, narrowly escap
All previous accounts of im
mense hail stones and wind
dwindle into insignificance. Many
of these blocks of ice weighed
fourteen to eighteen ounces, while
others found as late as 9 o'clock,
after a warm rain and warm weath
er, were larger than a goose
Two of these missiles passed
through the roof of C. E. Thornton's
residence, making a hole like a
cannon ball, while fowls roosting
in the trees were killed by the
hundreds. A cow belonging to
Frank Lawson was killed, and
stock bear many marks from these
ice stones. About 300 window
lights wore broken in this place
Farm fencas and fruit trees weru
prostrated for miles aroud.
The active Prohibitionists
haven't been saying anything, but
they have been at work for some
time, and it is pretty Bafe to say
that they have now about com
pleted the work of sounding the
sentiment of the Prohibit "lists
in the State. In a very few v^ays,
it is understood, some very in
teresting information from Prohi
bition headquarters may bo ex
pected. It looks now as if the
Prohibitionists are preparing to
make a big fight all along the line;
that an early convention will be |
held, and that as a final resort a
State Prohibition ticket may be
put out, to go before the people in
the August primary. What
strength such a ticket would de
velop remains to be seen-News

It is said that au officer ouce
weut up to the ruler of the English
common-wealth, [after he had
finished a prayer in the presence of
his troops, and said to him
.'I know now the God you be
lieve in ! He is only a bigger and
stronger Oliver Cromwell."
Whether this bold declaration
was true or not there is reason to
believe from many of the sermona
which have come to us from those
early days that some of our fore
fathers, with their narrew lives
and intense personal affections
and prejudices, were apt to to re
gard their Maker merely as a
larger and more powerful Self,
very much as they did their king
or the chief of their clan.

to have prayed before a battle:
"Be on our side 1 An' gin ye canna

an'j ye'll see thae carles get ?a

An old Covenanter, who ruled
his household with a rod of iron,
is said to have prayed in all
sincerity at family worship:
