The Boston Journal of Com
merce, which has been watching
the southward trend of cotton
manufacturing very closely, states
that the Southern mills, with few
exceptions, are more modern built
than those in the North and are
filled with the best machinory that
could be secured. Most of these
mills, says the Journal, have been
successful even at the very start,
having succeeded in turning out a
fine quality of goods at a cost that
when sold left a handsome margin
for the mills.
At a recent meeting of the New

offered and adopted to the effect
that no caucus be held this year to
bring out candidates for the differ

they will put out no caucus ticket
on the reform side of the house.

The liquor status in this State is
very unfortunate in this: Many of
those who favored the dispensary

cause of the great contrast in favor

hand those who opposed the dis

the blind tigers, for the reason that
the very notoriety this gives the
present liquor status demonstrates
and intensifies the good that was
in the dispensary system. So that
really both factions are doing all
they can to foster the blind tiger
iniquity-a very deplorable state
A practical joker perpetrated a
joke by sending to Senator Quay
a nicely bound book entitled on
the cover "What Congress is
doing." Senator Quay opened it,
looked through it, smiled and
laughed, then he passed it to Vice
President Stevenson who did
ditto, and then sent it to Senator
Pfeffer who did ditto, and thus it
passed around the Senate and all
the grave, etc, seigniors did ditto.
They thought it a good joke. But
there are lots of people in this
country who would relish the joke
more if there wasn't quite so much
truth in the jest. The book which
so excited Senatorial mirth was

A Negro Lynched] Near Lancastei
S. C., Yesterday.
Charleston, S. C., June 3.
Hardy GHI, a colored man was
taken by force from the jail in Lan
caster this morniug,between 1 and
2 o'clock, by a party of twenty-five
men and carried away about three
miles and lynched.
A coroner's inquest was held
over his body and the jury re
turned a verdict that he was shot
to death by parties unknown. Two
or three days ago, he without pro
vocation assaulted and inflicted, it
is feared, mortal wouuds on the
wife of Mr. James A. Clark, who
is now at the point of death. Mrs
Clark resides with her husband
about fourteen miles from the city.
"While richly meriting .his fate it
is greatly to be deplored.
Lancaster. Juue 3.-Hardy Gill,
a young negro, about thirty years
old, was taken from thc jail this
morning between 1 and 2 o'clock,
by a crowd of men and shot to
death, about three miles from
town. Gill was in jail for cruelly
beating Mrs. James A. Clark, of
Cedar Crt ek Township. On Mon
day last. Gill went to Mr. Ctark's
premises in his absence and com
menced raising a disturbance in
the yard. Upon being ordered
away by Mrs. Clark, he turned on
her with an andiron and beat her
unmercifully. Pie then picked up
Mrs. Clark's baby and threw it
across the house. Mrs. Clark's
injuries are such that she is not
expected to live. The little child.s
injuries are also of a serious
nature. The negro was immedi
ately arrested and lodged in jail.
Yesterday he was adjudged insane
before Trial Justice Burns. This
morning, between thc hours above
meutioned, .lailer Montgomery
and his assistant, Mr. Smith were
waked by voices on the outside of
the Jail. On opening the eloor the
jailer saw several men. They said
they had a prisoner for him and
that the papers were all right.
They wore admitted. As soon as
they keys to the floor above were
produced, the supposed prisoner
and the others grabbed both
Montgomery and Smith, and after
disarming them carrieel them both
up where the prisoners were. As
soon as th ay reached Plardy Gill's
cell they brought him out and af

pistol away, but told him it would
be returned to him. The crowd
were heard passing through the
town. Search was immediately
made for the negro and kept up
until 10 o'clock this morning, when
he was found about three miles
from town in the middle of the
road, completely riddled with bul
lets. The body was brought to
town and the inquest held this
afternoon by the coroner. The
verdict was that the negro came
to his death at the hands of
parties unknown to the jury.
Smith says tbat none of the part
ies were disguised and that they
were all strangers to Montgomery
and himself. He says the crowd

Prohibition Does Not Prohibit,

PROHIBITION PARK, Staten Island,
June 4.-Governor Tillman, of
South Carolina, presented his
Stale's position on the liquor ques
tion to an audience of 2,000 pro
hibitionists at this evening's ses
sion of the International Temper
ance Congress. The governor's
hearers did not agree with him as
to the plan, but they listened
closely to the end and found some
points at which they could applaud
without doing violence to their
consciences. At other times they
loudly expressed their disapproval.
Before the arrival of Gov. Till
man, Col. Alexander S. Bacon, of
Brooklyn, made an appeal for the
raising of $20,000. At this point
the electric lights went out and the
audience was in total darkness. A
score of lanterns were brought in
and tho guest from South Carolina
was led forward in semi-darknes6.
He was introduced by the Rev. Dr.
H. L. Wayland, of Philadelphia.
Gov. Tillman begau by saying that
he wished there were more lights
so that ho could look the people in
the eye and have them look him in
the eye and tell whether he was
"I have come a long way and
left my official duties, for the truth

here to-night that I am willing to
advance my convictions on my au
dience, and I am going to contro
vert your dearest ideas and firmest
beliefs. I am probably the only
politician present. I have been
elected governor of a State and I
am a candidate for the United
States Senate, and expect to be
The governor then went on to
say that he was not exactly a
politician in the ordinary ac
ceptance of the term. He said
that he always spoke his con
victions and that was not character
istic of politicians. He said that
he was a farmer, that his guberna
torial position was his first office,
rle announced that he proposed to
have his say and if any one in the
audience wanted to throw rocks at

Then, drawing himself to the full
height he said in tones that made
the rafters ring :
"I am here to-night to tell you
that prohibition don't prohibit,
and never will prohibit. We have
get a plan in South Carolina that
completely wipes out saloons and
we have done more than you have.
Xow, I am a temperance man.
(Applause.) I never drank five
gallons of whiskey, all told, in my
life. (Applause.) I sometimes take
a social glass with my friends, but
I don't like the stnff:"
Tho Goveanor then produced a
bottle of whiskey with the South
Carolina label on it. He waved it
like a fire brand in the faces of the
total abstainers and described
the State dispensary plan. He
said that prior to \he decision of
the' Supreme Court of the State
there was sixty-sixty dispensaries
in operation and the State had
paid out $379,000 for liquor : $57,
000 for bottles, and $37,000 for
labels and other expenses. From
thc total outlay of $475,000 and
with $98,000 worth of liquor on
hand, t$567,000 worth had been
sold and a net profit of $100,000 to
the State and $S4,000 to the coun
ties had been realized. He said
that the quality of* whiskey was
chemically pure so that the peo
ple quit having a debauch when
they got drunk on it. A moment
later he said people did not get
drunk on dispensary whiskey,
they got drunk on blind tiger
whiskey which, he said they hid
in holes m the ground or "toted"
in their boot legs. He stirred up
the audience by declaring that
prohibition would never be es
tablished by votes. "Give us a
chance," said a man in the front.
Thia brought a volley of applause.
When the Governor shouted. "You
are not ready to remove the Gov
ernment tax on whiskey."
"Ves we are," came from all
parts of the hall.
"Then you are blinder than I
thought you were," said the Gov
A moment later ho alluded to

Then he said, "Before 'you aroa

the example ofSouth Carolina."
"Never," shouted a woman

There were a hundred noes and

That is, assuring, said the Gov
ernor. He said that in all the
country of South Carolina and
nearly all the towns sentiment is
in favor of the dispensary law, it
will be carried out eventually.
He went on "So far as backbone
is concerned I have as much as
any other man, but when you
tackle the liquor trade entrenched
behind its hundreds of millions
you need to have the backbone of
the Statue of Liberty."

Mistakes About Abstainers,
Thc Contemporary Review.
I have nev* r asserted anything
so wrong and so foolish as that it
is a sin to drink wine; nor have
I ever been so uncharitable, and
gone so far beyond my legitimate
warrant, as to have pronounced a
syllable of condemnation against
J those who, in the somewhat clumsy
nomenclature of this controversy,
are called "moderate drinkers." If
there arc any who adopt such
language I can only say that 1
have never once heard it used at
any temperance meeting either of
the higher or lower classes. But,
granted that many foolish and
inconsiderate things are said upon
this subject, I ask whetaer there
is any controversy which is not
discredited by the bearing and
methods of some of its partisans?
And is no nonsense talked and
are no brutalities or vulgarities
of abuse resorted to-by those who
take the other side?
Plow often, for instance, have
we been told that total abstainers
are poor, weak, unbalanced crea
tures, who, being unable to protect
themselves from drunkenness, try
by all sorts of nonsense, folly, and
tyranny to rob their neighbors of
a harmless and beneficial in
dulgence? Into all these amenities
I refuse to enter. If it is foolish
and wrong to denouco all uso of
fermented liquors as a sin, it is no
lese foolish and wiong to speak of
total abstinence from them as a
Manichean comdemnation of "a
good creature of God." "A good
creature af God?" I havf- heard
Sir Wilfred Lawson say. "Of
course it is! So is a tiger. But
one does not want a tiger in one's
No modest-abstainer would
claim his abstinence as a virlup, or
pharisaically pride himself upon
it; bnt it is at least ap equal
absurdity to speak of tho use of
beer and wine as though the self
gratification involved in drinking
them were a virtue which entitlep
the "moderate drinker" to look
down upon his neighbor from an in
definite altitude of superiority. And
surely a sufficient number of men
pre-eminent goodness, learning,
and wisdom, in all ages and coun
tries-from the days of Pythagoras
down to those of John thc Baptist,
and through all the Christian ages

FBAU.D AND THE MAILS.
Important Conviction in the V.
S. District Court at Charleston.
An important and interesting
case was tried in the United States
court atCharlestou, Judge Brawley
presiding, on the 17th of Ma}', in
volving the suppression, for the
presentat le;-st. of a proposed
forger who has also served a term
in the penitentiary for forgery;
and also involving the principle
that the United States mail cannot
be used for the purpose ' of fraud,
even if the perpetrator . may not
finally consummate his schemes
and become the beneficiary of his
fraud, or proposed fraud.
One F. A. Blackwood, writing
over the fictitious signaturejof W.
D. Morris, Sr., addressed the
American Bank Note Company at
New York asking ?.hem to furnish
him with a supply of Southern
Express money orders. He alleged
that his uncle was an agent of the
Southern Express Company, and
had lost a lot of money orders, and
they were ashamed to acknowledge
their carelessness to the company,
aud desired to replace them, and
wished to have prices quoted by
the hundred, the object being to
obtain a supply of blank money
orders b}' this subterfuge.
At the same time, he was
negotiating by mail [with the Cole
Printing Company of Sanford. N.
C" with a view to obtaining checks
on sundry banks and letter heads
with the name of C. L. Loop,geue
rs\ auditor, Southern Express
Company printed thereon.
The American Bank Note Com
pany promptly referred the cor
respondence received by them to
General Auditor Loop of the
Southern Express Company, .who
placed the matter in the hands of
Route Agent A. M. Itichardsun of
the same company, at Colunbia,
who succeeded in locating the
alleged W. D. Morris as one F. A.
Blackwood. Blackwood was arres
ted upon a warrant sworn out by
F. D. Peer, postoffice inspector,
who rendered material service in
working up and prosecuting the
Blackwood, was taken before the
United States commissioner in
Charleston and committed for trial.
The witnesses against Blackwood
were T. IT. Lee of the American
Bank Note Company of New York,
the general auditor of the Southern
Express Company, Route Agent
Richardion of the same company,
deputy United States marshal
who made the arrest with search
warrant, the postmaster at Barn
well; S. C" and others.
The guilt of Blackwood was
established so clearly that there
could be no doubt whatever.
Blackwood was prosecuted by
United States District Attorney
Murphy, and his able assistants,
Messrs. Wood and Hughes. A
very forcible argument was made
in the case by District Attorney
Murphy. Blackwood was ably de
fended by R. Withers Memminger
of the Charleston bar.
An able and elaborate charge
was delivered by Judge Brawley,
in which the law of the case was
carefully set forth, and the duty of
tne juiy in the consideration of
the evidence,and the applicability
of the law set forth. The jury, after
retiring for a short time, returned
averdict of guilty. Blackwood was
sentenced by Judge Brawley to
imprisonment in the Columbus,
0., penitentiary for a term of one
year and one month, and to pay a
fine of $500.
Senator A.T. Smythe, of Charles
ton, has tendered his resignation
to Hon. W. H. Timmerman pre

that Senator Smythe resigns his
seat in the upper House so as to

out being hampered in the coming
campaign. We see, however, that
Senator Smythe denies the soft im
peachment-not a candidate.
