The Rev. Win. S. Bowman, D. D.
His Tongregation Oppose his Accepting of the
Presidency of Newberry College.
At a meeting of the congregation'
of the Wentworth street Lutheran
Church, held after morning service.
Sunday, July -29, for the purpose of
taking into consideration the election
of their pastor, the Rev. W. S. Bow
man, to the presidency of Newberry
College, the following preamble and
resolutions were unanimously adopted:
Whereas, the unwelcome intelli
gence having reached this church and
congregation through the columns of
the Lutheran Visitor, the daily papers
and from) personal -sources that at the
recent meeting of the blard of trus
tees of Newberry College, our beloved
pastor, the Rev. W. S. Bowman, D.].,
was elected president of said college,
as a church and congregation we deem
it right and proper to give expression
to our opinions in relation to said
action of the board of trustees of New
berry College, thereby strengthening
the hands of our beloved pastor and
aiding him in deciding the question
of acceptance or declination of the high
honor conferred on him. We frankly
admit the necessity of having an able
mau to preside over the college, but
the question here occurs will the field
for usefulness and for good be as great
at Newberry as it is with us and in
Charleston ? We think not. We
may be selfish in the thought, but
certainly truthful and candid. Our
church has prospered through the
blessing of God under the faithful and
indefatigable labors of our loved pas
tor. Ties ad attachments have been
formed that are sacred and holy, and
shall they be rudely sundered and
broken ? We trust not. Brother
Bowman enjoys the confidence, love
and esteem of our entire comnmunity.
He is universally beloved by all, and
consequently his field for usefulness
and good is made greater here in
Charleston than it could be as presi
dent of Newberry College. We also
fear that the Lutheran Church in
Charleston would be most seriously in
jured by the removal of Dr. Bowman
therefrom. Therefore be it '
Resolz;ed,. That the Wentworth
street Lutheran Church and congrega
tion earnestly and affectionately entreat
their beloved pastor, Rev. W. S. Bow
man, D. D., to decline the tempting
prefier and continue his loving minis
tration with us; contiue to breakun
to us the bread of life; to lead us to
green pastures and beside the still
waters; to comfort the stricken and
surviving among us; to cheer the
drooping and despondent; to speak
words of holy canifort to the dying,
and to point sinners to the Lamb of
God who taketh away the sins of the
world, aamong us as his people.
Resolved, That the secretary be in
structed to transmit a copy of these
proceedings to our beloved pastor.
R?esolved, That they be published
in the Lutheran Thsitor and one of
the daily papers of this city.

which all of our people are deeply
concerned. I beg especially to call
the attention of the ofiicers of our va

them and all parties interested in the

to supply me with such information
as they may deem appropriate in or

of Agriculture, as indicated by his

The Healthfulness of Newberry.
Attention is called to the commu
nication of Dr. O. B. Mayer, Sr.,
on this subject. The Doctor un
derstands thoroughly what he is
writing about, being a man eminent
in his profession, and one who
has given a great deal of study to
the subject of hygiene. In all that
he says we concur entirely.
We venture the assertion that
there is not a healthier place in the
State than Newberry. It possesses
a medium temperature between the
cold winters of the mountain re
gions and the hot summers of the
lower sections of the State, being
free to a great extent from the Ty
phoid Fever, Pneumonia and simi
lar diseases of the former and the
malaria incident to the latter. We
are not stating theories, but what
experience has proved. We can
point to numerous individual cases
to confirm what we say-to persons
who have come' here from other
sections of the State and whose
health has since greatly improved
One of our citizens, who is a
picture of health and vigor, weigh
ing now 185 pounds, came here a
few years- ago almost an invalid,
weighing only 118. Another came
here just a year ago, pale, lean and
feeble, whose weight at that time
and for ten years previous, was only
140 ; he now weighs 165, and feels
like a new man. His gain in strength
and general health has been greater
than his gain in flesh. Both these
gentlemen came from places noted
for their healthfulness.
We could easily point to other
cases, but it is not necessary.

brakemen. Their places were soon
supplied, and no serious consequences
were then anticipated. Meetings
were held, however, at other stations

among the Baltimore box-makers, can

of 10 per cent. in their wages.
the strike became general along the
Baltimore and Ohio road. Trains
were stopped at the stations. The
strikers became so riotous at Martins

called out the militia to quell the dis

but were repuised. All freight was
now at a standstill along the line.
Gov. Mathews finding the militia un
able to cope with the rioters, asked
President Hayes for troops. The
President sent him 250 soldiers un

clamation commanding the rioters to
disperse by uoon next day, to which
they paid no attention. The rioters
trrew more numnerous and boisterous.

Our Washington Letter.
WASHINGTON, D. C.,
August 1, 1877.
One candidate for Governor of Vir
,inia takes about the same ground in
inauces that Ensign Stebbins took on
the temperance question. He was "in
favor of the Maine liquor law, but
agin its euforcement." This candi
date for Governor believes in an ad
justmient of the State debt, which
means the payment of a portion of it
only, but is opposed to the repudia
tion of it. The man who will be
selected as Governor of the good old
State will be one in whose voice
there will be no uncertain sound.
If the West had completely over.
come the fright;that the riots gave it,
the Republicans of Ohio would most
likely have had a lively time in State
Convention to morrow. They may
have, as it is, because of the riots and
strikes, but I look for much more
temperate action on all except finan
cial subjects than would otherwise
have been possible. With poor peo
ple everywhere starving and our
greatest aggregations of capital in
imminent danger of destruction, men
cannot be expected to give the same
attention to an irreversible fact, like
the Southern Policy, or to an ab
straction like Scburz's and Hayes'
civil service reform humbug, that
they otherwise might. Nevertheless
there may be a very pretty fight.
The rioting attending the strikes
is well over, and the strikes them
selves are approaching a conclusion.
It may not be unprofitable to allude
again to the per.sistent effort made by
the Republicans alone, to show that
this violence proves the necessity for
a stronger government and a lai-ger
national army. These people over
look the fact that the time to stop a
riot is when it commences, and before
it gets headway, and that that can
only be done by force near by. Two
well-disciplined militia companies
brought to Martinsburg at the be
ginning of violence would not only
have saved the employment of regular
troops there and elsewhere, but would
have prevented the immense destruc
tion of property in other cities. But
West Virginia had not a well-discip
lined militia conipany in her borders,
and had to await the necessarily slow
approach of Federal troops.
To-night Mr. Hayes, in company
with Carl Schurz. will ride out to the
popular German Schutzenfest, and
look on while people enjoy themselves
drinking beer and wine. Whether
Mr. Hayes, led away in this by
Schurz, as he has been in so many
other things, will for get the temperate
habits, which more than anything
else distinguish him, and taste* the
beverage which cheers, but not ine
briates, an anxious country will be
informed to-morrow. At least, he
will ha-ve the pleasure of looking upon
thousands of men and women, young
and old, all sober, all enjoying them
selves, and all of course peacefully
engaged. He will see no rudeness,
no fighting, no picking of pockets, no
policeman, no intoxicated persons.
Secretary Sherman whether intend
ing it or not has done something
which he ought not' to have done.
Sometime ago he announced his belief
in a plan for putting before a Court,
or Commission to be specially created
for the purpose, all claims growing
out of the late war. To this no one
could object. It would secure uni
formity in decisions at least. But to
inauguratc a movement in favor of
his plan, he thought it necessary to
~promulgate an order suspending |pay
ment of any class of war claims. Still
no one objected. But it is now found
that under that order the Secretary's
subordinates have stopped the pay.
ment even of the bounties and allow
ances of soldiers of the late war.
These have b-een held heretofore sa
cred by both Radical and Conserva
tive Secretaries. Under Sherman and
Hayes they go with numberless other
unquestioned claims, into the hands
of some future Congress.
The Ohio Democracy..
The Democrats of Ohio have noni
nated Hion. R. M. Bishop, of Cincin
nati, for Governor. lHe has never
been a very prominent politician, only
having been Mayor and member of the
Legislature; but in the election of the
members to the Constitutional Con
vention he had a majority of six hun
dred more than any other candidate.
It is thought his nomination is a very
popular one, and that his election to
the Governorship is pretty sure. The
following is the concise platform of
principles set forth by the party:
The Democratic party of Ohio. in
State Convention assembled, renews
its pledges of devotion to the Union
and the constitution, with the amend
ments. It declares as essential to the
preservation of free government a
faithful adherence to the following
principles : Strict construetion; home
rule; the supremacy of the civil over
the military power ; the separation of
church and State; the equality of all
citizens before the law; liberty of in
aividual action, unvexed by sumptu
ary laws; absolute acquiescence in
the lawfully expressed will of the ma

the preservation of the public lands to
the use of actual settlers; and the 1

Broadbrin's New York Letter.
The Great Strike---Stirring Scenes in New
York-The Military Called Out--Meeting
of the Commune at Tompkins Square
-Dispersion of the Rioters-The
Troops Coming Home-The
Press-"Order Reigns in
The terrible events of the past
week have followed each other in
such rapid and alarming succession
that I have scarcely had time to
think, much less to make a summary
of the news. The tramp of armed
men, the beat of martial drums, and
the roll of artillery through our
streets have kept us on a high-strung
tension with a sense of impending
peril. We know that we are sitting
on the crater of a volcaoo which is
ready to burst at any moment. Nearly
thirty thousand thieves and gamblers,
backed by an army of fifty thousand
idle men reduced to the most abject
and suffering destitution, form an ele
ment of which any community may
well stand in dread. A thousand
millions of property lie exposed, and
New York is fully awake to her peril.
Not by any means the lightest of. our
dangers is the character of our mu
nicipal rulers. Closely allied with
the criminal classes they fear giving
offense, and the result is a pandering
to the vilest elements of the mob in
our suprewest hour of danger. For
tunately Governor Robinson was equal
to the emergency. The rapid action
of our organized military and perfect
discipline of our metropolitan police,
-these, with the wholesome aid ex
tended by the general government,
have averted a danger greater than
that from which we escaped only
twelve short years ago. The failure.
of tile Commune leaves us still a na
tion, while its success would have
left our much-loved republic a heap
of smouldering ruins.
When the news reached us of the
riot in Baltimore, there was but little
cause for alarm ; still later came the
terrible scenes at Pittsburg with its
horrible details writtcn in letters of
crimson and black, its desolate homes,
its wickedness and its crime. The
next day and our own State was
thrilled from its center to its circum
ference with the intelligence of organ
ized rebellion in our midst, and Erie,
one of the main arteries of our com
mercial life, was in the hands of an
organized mob. Following each other
in rapid succession came the intelli
gence of fresh disasters. Men began
to look distrustfully at their neigh
bors till they knew how far they were
committed to the strike. On Sunday,
while .the quiet Sabbath bells were
ringing, the Twenty-Third Regiment
of Brooklyn might be seen hurrying
through the streets, every man with
his knapsack on his back as if de
parting for the war. At night, as
they marched out of their armory,
mothers, sisters, wives and sweet
hearts rushed up to the departing sol
diers to take ne parting kiss. They
were followed by an immense multi.
tude to the ferry. The sentries at
the gates charged back the- crowd,
nd, as the troops steamed out into
he river and were lost in the dark
aess of tihe night, a low, deep wail
went up from the poor women left
pon the shore, who felt that they
ight possibly never see their loved
nes again. By Monday we began
o feel the pressure on our markets.
Within a radius of a few miles lie
wo millions of people who depend on
he railroads for their daily supplies.
Vor our beef, bread and vegetables
e depend on uninterrupted railroad
~ommunication. A few hours' de
ention in a supply-train is like seiz
g a strong man by the throat. Hie

they had everything to gain and no
thiug to lose. 'The feeling among our
people has been one of trembling in
security. Around us on every side
are vast store-houses containing- rich
stuffs worth hundreds of millions of
dollars. Millions and millions of gold,
silver, and valuable securities are
hoarded in the banks of Wall street.
No such rich prize is to be found in
the United States and very few in the
Tuesday came, the area of the strike
had increased, till in four days it had
spanned the American continent, and
a million of men at least were directly
interested in its success. The mem
bers of the New York Commune, com
posing the most disreputable elements
of our working classes, led by an Irish
revolutionist by the name of Swinton,
applied for permission to hold a meet
ing in Tompkins Square. There was
also to he a German meeting in the
same place, presided over by an ?ndi
vidual named Schwab. The crisis
was perilous; the portion of the city
in which the meeting was to be held
is peopled by the scum of our foreign
population, intermixed with the very
worst elements of our own; here,
three years ago, a te'rrible conflict oc
curred between the members of the
Commune and the police, and the
streets were dyed with blood before
the insurrection could be quelled. The
wretched demagogues of the Park
Commission and the Mayor realized
the terrible crime they had committed
in allowing the revolutionists to meet,
and urged by our best citizens began
to make tardy preparation for the re
sult. Our different regiments were
got ready in their armories ; the whole
of our reserve police force was called
into active duty; at least a thousand
police, extra constables, and detectives
in citizens' dress mingled with the un
washed multitude, and the result was
a wholesome dread on the part of the
Commune, which turned the tragedy
into a farce. The speakers were greet
ed with hooting and cries by the mob
mingled with gentle invitations to
"pull down their vests," and "wipe off
their chics," to "wash their dirty
faces and get clean shirts," of which
some of them seemed to be sady in
need. A conflict of authority took
place between the speakers Conroy and
Swinton, both employed on the New
York "Sun," which eventually broke
up the meeting ; the enemies of social
order were eulogized ; the cowards and
scoundrels who deserted their arms
and fraternized with the mob were
praised. A general division of . pro
perty was advocated, and awed by the
clubs of the police the unsavory crowd
scattered to tihe low drinking shops in
the vicinity, cursing their hard fate
that no opportunity was afforded them
for arson, robbery and murder;,. and
hoping for another chance which would
bring back the good old times of the
Commune when they fired the Tuile
ries, destroyed the column Vendome,
and assassinated in cold blood the good
Archbishop of . Paris. We breathe
freer now that the danger has past,
and for the sense of security which
assures the safety of our wives, our
children and our hearth-stones, we feel
like giving tbanks to God..
The troops returning home from
different points of the State where
they have been performing eff'ective
duty, have all received a grand ova
tion. The Twenty-third regiment of
Brooklyn, which was the first regiment
called out was awarded a glorious re
ception; all along the line the boys
were cheered and fairly showered with
bouquets; and the gallant Ninth of
New York will also receive an ovation.
Peace has reigned supreme within our
limits while the whole nation has been
shaken by an earthquake, such as it
never experienced before. We feel
humbly grateful to this exemption,
and think after all, notwithstanding
our frailties and sins, that we are not
so bad as we seem.
Pardon me if in the letter of this
week I have little roenm for idle gos
sip and nonsense and laughter and
jests which, while it made the "un
skillful laugh, could not but make
the judicious grieve." The events
of the past few days with their tre
mendous possibilities of ruin and
death, leave only a feeling of supreme
thankfulness to the Almighty God
that we have escaped the impendiog
danger. That we have escaped it,
thanks to the loyal hearts whose firm
ness remained unshaken in the very
jaws of death ; thanks to the friends
of law and social order everywhere;
thanks to the rulers of the land, who
realized our peril and were prompt
and zealous in the performance of
their duty ; thanks to our citizen sol
diery whose bayonets and sabers de
fended the majesty of the law, and
above all, thanks to the press. of the
United States, which, fully realizing
the tremendous nature of the crisis,
has spoken in no uncertain note in
behalf of justice, of God, and the
right. No political differences have
separated them in the hour of the na
tion's danger. The Democratic World
has rivaled the Republican Times,
and the Republican Union of Brook
lyn has but echoed the grand and no
ble utterances of the Democratic Ea
gle. which, by the way, is one of the
most enterprising papers in the State.
When you consider how liable news
paper property is to destruction, and
how the blind fury of a mob turns
that way to give vent to its earliest
expression, the nature of the stand
aken and the danger incurred by the
press can only be partly estimated.
[t was the press that sounded the
key-note of alarm; it was the press
~hat awakened the entire land to a
~ese of the impending danger, and
:t was the press that, when the shock
>f the conflict came, arrayed itself on
.he side of order and of law, prepared
o -incur the penalty of iegrqetion
-ather than swerve a hair's breadth
'row the right. Occasionally there
-a hav bee a we.k-kneed sister
that in the hour of danger the repre
sentatives of the fourth estate will be
found where duty calls.
The clesing days of July, 1877,
-will be memorabW in the history of
this nation, as long as the republic
shall stand. It is shocks and trials
like these that demonstrate the possi
bility of national existence, and the
purification by fire alone leaves the
gold pure, and virgin, and bright.
The sufferings of the poor and the
laboring classes must, for the well
being and safety of society; find a
respousein the hearts of the rich.
Every man must have the right su
preme to his own labor, and no man
can or shall have the right to dictate
to him what he shall choose to take.
In this lies the only absolute safety
of the citizen, the only absolute safety
of the republic. Within these lines
the citizen will find redress for every
grievance, without -theu are ruin,
misery and death.
I am, truly yours,
