It may be too early to predict
but from til the signs the year
1897 promises no better times than
1896 gave us. The New England
cotton mi il men say that they
will have to shut down entirely or
curtail their output of goods. The
poverty of the country, especially
the middle and lower classes, pre
vents them from using goods of
which they were at one time large
consumers, and in consequence
there is an over-production in, '
most if not all commodities.
President Cleveland has kept

cording to the New York Journal,
Secretary Olney, on behalf of our
government, has submitted to Pre
mier Canovas, of Spain, a pro
posai that Spain shall allow to
Cuba autonomy, or self govern
ment, to collect all taxes, her atti
tude to be entirely one of ind?
pendance except that the island
shall remain in name a Spanish
province, It is said that Canovas
agrees, and that now Cleveland
and Olney have only to induce the
Cobaus to consent to the cessa! ion
of hostilities on these terms. The
Cuban leaders, however, aie con
fident of ultimate success in their
struggle for freedom and they may
prefer to fight it out, if need be,

SENATOR S?DMTH'S BILL.
it Forbids the Collection of Taxes
to Pay for Bonds for Which no
Value Has Been Keceived- So
licitor Thurmond Explains the
Scope and Purport of the Bill.
Thore has been considerable
:alk amoLg the legal fraternity
ibout the antagonistic attitude of
;he Federal and ?State courts on
;he question of the payment of
Township bonds in aid of rail
roads that have never been com
pleted, and 3'esterday a Register
reporter interviewed Solicitor J.
William Thurmond with regard to
a. bill dealing with this suhjpct
whish he prepared for Senator
Suddath, of Saluda, and which
was introduced in the Senate,
Friday. Hoing asked thc purport
and scope of the bill, Mr. Thur
mond answered in effect as fol
"The bili simply forbids thc
Boards of County Commissioners
and ot':er ofilcers from assessing
and levying; and treasurers and
other officers collecting taxes to
pay township bonds issued in aid
of railroads that have hover been
completed and finished through
the townships issuing such bonds.
Floyd against Perrin decided
that as the townships were simply
given the right to subscribe to thc
railroad, and to assess \ixes to
pay the subscription, they were
without, any corporate purpose,
and therefore the power lo assess
a tax to pay this subscription was
violative of the Constitu? ion. Hui
in 1888, the L?gislature did what
the townships could not do; i
levied tho tax to pay the bonds
previouly i ?fued when the railroad
was completed and finished
through the township issuing the
same. This Act was held cons'i
tutional by our Supreme Court in '
Railroad Company against White- ;
sides and in other cases.
Some time back the United I
Stales Court in Folsom against ?
Xinely-S;x Township, held the
township bonds valid. So we
have ourSuureme Cmrt giving ene
of our Acts one construction and j
the United States Supreme Court1
giving it another. The two courts
Gave co-ordinate jurisdiction inj
this matter, and neither isl
supp, i or to the oilier.
No? .Mr. Suddath's bill may
bring about a conflict between
said two courts, or between the
Federal Courts and our tax as
sessing.ahd collecting o Ricers. Un
der Mr. Suddath's bill one of those
officers would not dare violate its
provisions, as the punishment is
?ervsreat. Now, our court will
fore would not issue a mandamus
against said officers, or otherwise
aid in the collection of said
bonds. But the Federal Court
might assume this authority, and
if so a question will be made that
the sooner it is settled the better.
Assessment can only be made
by officers appointed or elected
for that purpose. Our State officers
are the only such officers, and
certainly a Federal Court cannot
rsquire them to do what our statute
says they shail not do, and what
our courts say is wrong to do. The
statutory remedy for collection of
taxes is exclusive, unless other
remedies are expressly authorized.
Tho?e bonds can be paid only by
laxes collected by our treasurers
crea tee by our statutes, and thin
is prohibited. If the Suddath bill
I ecomes a law thc Federal Court?
will find many obstacles in their
usurped judicial path before they
are able lo make plethoric the
purses of those shrewd Northerners
who have so duped our people."
Senator Tillman is, perhaps, one
of the most inconsistent men in
the State and should never again
blame a United States Senator for
leaving Washington and intersting
himself in local politics. Tillman
had no more right in Dillon on
last Monday than Hampton did
in Aiken several years ago, and
of which Tillman made poli
tical capital. "Upon what meat
hath our Ceasar fed that ho hath
grown so great?" He has evidently
grown greater than bis party and
claims for himself special privi
leges that he is not willing to ,
;;rant to others. In his speech
it Dillon he intimated thal the
)9opleliving below the proposed '
iew county line had nothing 1

midnight. Mrs Britton the boys'
matron, had been in bed some
time when she was awakened by
the smell of smoke. She jumped

she immediately raised cry of fire.
The a'taches were hastily aroused
and sent in all directions to rouse

children and despite her frantic

Charleston, S. C., ?5.-"The
blood on the moon" situation
which has ben understood to be
brewing between this city, and
Columbia duringa the past few
days, in consequence of au
editorial squib which appeared in
the Char!.'.stop, morning paper on
Wednesday, is believed to have
happily blown over. The squib
which caused the rumored trouble
is given below :
"A gentleman promiu^nt in mil
itary affaira in South Carolina
whose name could not bs lear ned,"
says the AugUbta Herald, while
riding up Center street yesterday
afternoon met with a painful
accident. His horse was wild
and became unmanageblej and
threw him on the pavement near
Stafford's blacksmith shop bruie
i hg him up considerably and
otherwise injuring him." Does
any! ody know whether Gen. John
L\. Watts baa been iu Augasta
within the past week? He is the
only gentleman prominent in
military affairs in South Carolina
just now we belive."
When this was read in official
circles in Columbia Wednesday
it was construed at ouce to be a
reckless and uncalled for revival
of a campaign slander and ex
clamations of "Outrage!" and
liier expletives of a less mild
character were freely indulged in
by the friends of the Adjutant and
Inspector General, who was and
bad been strictly attending to his
?fficial duties 'at the capitol af
the lime of the alleged occurrence
ivhich gave tho excuse for thia
pointed personal innuendo.
General Watts was very much
tunoyed and the first tra ia out of

Karney Evans, oceanward. It was

Di' appeals to-day reversed the
decision of the court below in the
celebrated South Carolina bond
case. The suit grew out of a dis
pute between T. Edward. Ham
bleton & Co., and other Balti
moreans and Colden Rhind of
Georgia and a bankers named
Lancaster of New York and Rich
mond, wnere a divisou of commis
sions for floating a bond issue of
tho State of South Carolina.
In 1892" Rhind obtained author
ity from the authorities of South
Carolina to fi oat $600,000 State
bo>;d3. He applied to Lancastar
Dr aid in for mit g a n inca te to
take them. Lancaster was un
able to float the entire issue and
Hambleton & Co., were appealed
to. It was agree d that subscribers
should share alike in the profits
Df tho transaction. After the
bond issue, Lancaster and Rhind,
it is alleged, entered into a secret
agreement whereby two-thirds of
the interest due on July 1, 1893,
should be paid to Lancaster to
pay ''syndicate expenses,"wbich,
it was hinted, was political influ
ence. This, if the whole of the
issue were considered, would
amount to more than $118,000.
The court holds that the syndi
cate had a rght to know what
these syndicate expenses were
and says |hat Lancaster not only
suppressed the truth, but deli
berately uttered the most unblush
ing falsehoods. The court finds
