WEDNESDAY, DEC. 9,1S96. *
Senator Tillman has gone on to
Washington to attend tho meeting
of Congress now in session.
Taxes are higher in Edge'field
than at an}7 time since the wari
and this in face cf-the promise
that they should be reduced. What
is the matter; ?an anybody tell?
Ben Tillman was invited to
speak at Gaffney on last Saturday
in :he interest of a new county
with that town as the county seat
He did speak there as scheduled?
but rather threw cold water or. the
new county craze. Ee seems to
think that the reform movement
has moved a little too far and too
fast and that it is time to call a
At the next meeting of the leg
islature a memorial will be pre
sented signed by numerous citi
zens of Hampton crunty praying
for local option, hie prayer of
which concludes as follows: "If
? other counties desire the dispensa
- ry profits to go to the cumber some
dispensary system as it has here
tofore gone, then werespec.fully ask
that our county be granted the lo
cal optiDn privilege."
A. J. White, the well known
liquor man of Cincinnati], is dead.
Ho il was who came to Columbia
to testify in the liquor rebate busi
ness but who always contended
that lhey would not let him tell
what he knew, ityw he is dead
. and we may never get it. However,
the effort to conceal, lo hide, to
suppress is evidence of guilt so
strong that all the people believe
that the rebate business was a bad
business and it will be a stain and
a stigma on the parties implicated
Judge O. W. Buchanan is being
highly complimented for the able
manner in which he presided at
our recent term of court here. His
rulings were prompt on all points
raised before him and showed a
judicial acum?n seldom seen in
oue of his years. Besides being
one of the best judges on the bench
he made one ofsthe ablest attorney
generals tte State ever had.
It is reported that he will be the
successor of Hon. W. H. Sllerbe
as governor. In fact mauy Refor.
mers insisted that h? enter the re
cent raca for the. Senate against
John Gaiy Evans but he declined
Magistrates,Have Ko Jurisdic
Judge Earle has just made a de
cision in Barnwell that the magis
trates cf this State have no juris
diction in either civil or criminal
This condition has brought about
by Governor Evans having vetoed
the bill giving them jurisiiction
and defining their duties. The
Governor vetoed thc bill because

If this decision stands, South
Carolina was no officers to try pet
ty offenders and the verdicts ren
dered in civil esses by magistrates
can not stand.
On the other hand Judge Gary has
decided that exactly the same jurisdic
tion, powers and duties were conferred
upon magistrates by the new constitu
tion as were exercised by trial justices
under the laws existing when the con.
stitution went into effect. He says the
intention was mereiy to change the
name of the oflice and of the officer
from-trial justice to magistrate.
The prohibitionists of the State
have issued an address to the
Christian citizens of the State
signed by a committee of eight,
which they conclude as follows:
"Wo believe it is the will of God
that Prohibition should be the
watchword of those thus organized,
and that prohibition should mean
110 compromise with evil.
The committee will seek to se
cure the passage, at the next ses
sion of the legislature, of an
amendment to the present laws of
the State that will prohibit liquors
being sold for any purpose other
than medicinal, mechanical, and
scientific. They earnestly request
the co-operation of all good men
by prayer and werk to aid them in
bringing to a successful issue the
task before them. To the minis
ters ot the Gospel especially, do
they extend the request for their
invaluable aid by discoursing upon
and otherwise laboring for the pro
hibition o? the liquor traffic as
only a Christian minister can clo.
The committee will be charged
with a great burden involving
many duties. They wi:l certainly
need the encouragement and help
of all who aro with them in this
