A PAPER FOR THE PEOPLE.
The Herald is in the highest respect a Fain
ily Newspaper, devote(l to the material in
terests of the people of this County and the
State. It circulates extensively, and as an
Advertising medium offers unrivalled ad
vantages. 'Ior Terms, see first page.
The Press and Banner on the
The Abbeville Press and Banner,
in its last issue, gives a general re
view of the opinion of the State
press on the lynching of Jno. J.
Moore in Spartanburg County, for
rape and murder. The Press and
Banfter sets down the 3,eics and
Courier as non-committal ; the New
berry B.mLkD and Pickens Sentinel
as exonerating the lynchers, and
the Darlington News, Kingstree
Star, Georgetown Times and Comet,
Beaufort Crescent and Chester Bu
letin as condemning them. The
Press and Banner also condemns
the action of the lynLeers. It is
undoubtedly right in condemning
lynch law. We are as much op
posed to it as anybody, on general
principles ; it sets a bad precedent.
But in the case of Moore we are in
clined to think that his speedy pun
ishment will have an influence to
wards preventing the repetition of
such crimes as M-ore was guilty of
that will more than counterbalance
the "dangerous precedent."
The Press and Banner makes two
very serious charges against the
country press in its editiorial on
this- subject. In speaking of the
Charleston News and Courier it
says: "If anything it leaned to the
lynchers, and its correspondent's
account was very commendatory.
This we regret, for the Aers and
Courier has a numerous following
of country papers whose opinions
are shaped after their Charleston
model." Yery complimentary to
the country papers, indeed. But
this is not the worst charge. It
speaks of those papers that con
demned the lynching as "speaking
out their mind firmly and fearless
ly", and of the others as having
been "muzzled by timidity or mis
taken policy." In our experience
SSouth Carolina editors we
have found nothing to justify such
language. Some of them are not
very brilliant nor very learned, but,
so far as we have seen, they are
honest in their opinions and fear
less in expressing them. Most of
them get a great deal of their news
from the News and Courier, by
large odds the best news paper in
the State ; but that is a very differ
ent thing from forming their opin
ions after that model. A newspa
per that forms its opinion after a
model, however excellent, deserves
unmitigated contempt. We know
of no such in South Carolina. The
Press and Banner must know of
such, or it would not have made
such a charge.
But what was there in the Moore
lynching that would deter any pa
per from speaking out its mind ?
Suppose an editor disapproved of
the lynching, couldn't he say so
with perfect impunity ? What was
there to be afraid of ? A thrash
ing ? Public opinion ? Such con
siderations might have moved the
Spartanburg editors if they had
been men subject to such influences,
which they are not ; but could have
had no influence on those far re
moved from the locality of the deed.
If we chose we might take the
-- Press and Banner's argument and
prove that the lynching was per
fectly justifiable. If the public at
large approved the act who shall
say aught against it ? "But hang
ing a man without a legal -trial is
murder." Who made it so ? The
law of Nature did not. The law of
God did not ; for that says "Whoso
sheddeth man's blood by man shall
his blood be shed." The trial, the
jury, the judge--all these are to
ascertain whether the man be guil
ty, not to make him so; he is just
as guilty before trial as after. These
are only means adopted by society
-the public. Has not society a
right to disregard its own law ? It
certainly has in someo instances ;
why not in this ? There is no of
fense known to the law more hein
ons than rebellion. What shall we
say of George Washington and the
American people who threw off the
posed and beheaded, against :
law. There were many adherents
of James II in his day ; yet he was
driven from his throne and his
thrce kingdoms without warrant or
semblance of law. Were Washing
ton, Cromwell, William and Mary
rebels and traitors ? They wou'd
have been had they been in the
minority. But the majority of the
people agreed wIth them, and that
made them right. The majority of
the people agreed with the lynchers
of Moore, and that fact justified the
We do not wish to be considered
from the above reasoning as justi
fying lynch law, but only to show
that the Spartanburg lynchers were
not murderers except in a technical
sense-and right and morality
know no technicalities.
Just one word more: The Press
and Banner is an excellent news
paper, "country paper" though it
is ; yet it should not claim for itself
infallibility, nor should it assume to
judge other men's consciences.
Crimes and Casualties.
A Mrs. Belcher died the 11th in
stant, near Vernonsville, Spartan
burg County, from the effects of a
beating received from her husband.
Marcellus Floyd, a negro who at
tempted to rape a white girl in
Richmond County, Texas, was ta
ken from jail by an armed band
the 18th and hanged.
The night of the 10th inst., while 1
two negroes near Bamberg, Barn- 1
well County, were returning from
Church they got into a fight. One
killed the other with a knife.
James V. Nethers, of Union, S.
C., committed suicide in Atlanta,
Ga., the 18th inst., by laying his
head on the railroad track and al
lowing the train to run over him.
Two young men named Lee and
Prentiss fought with pistols about
a young lady near Cheraw, the 13th.
Twelve or fourteen shots were fired.
Lee was wounded in the arm, and
Prentiss was killed.
The 11th inst., Win. Evans, a
white constable of Colleton, at

colored, for larceny ; a fight en
sued, and Huggins was shot and
killed by the constable.
Mr. D. Nordmeyer, of Charles

a painful disease, and this is sup
posed to have been the cause of the
The night of the 14th inst., an
attempt was made to assassinate
Mr. Jno. M. Timmons, a young
man of Greenville. Some one en

while he was asleep and struck him
with an axe, cutting a gash in his
neck four inches long. No clue to
the perpetrator of the deed.
Five new cases of yellow fever
were developed in Memphis the
Three cases were reported to the
Board of Health the 18th, seven
the 19th, and ten the 20th. Thet
fever is spreading ; the doctors de

and there is a perfect stampede of
the citizens and almost a total sus
pension of business. Every outgo-e

acting President of the Board of
Health, says the fever is not so ma
lignant as last year, but yields more
readily to treatment.. t
This institution, located at Green
ville, a few years ago determined
to raise an endowment of $200,

placed the Faculty in an embarrass
ing position, and they resigned.

GLENN SPRINGS, July 16, 1879.
In spite of the thunderstorm and
the slight rain of last Sunday, which
brought the mercury down out of the
aincties, the company at Glenn's are
igain in a melting mood, and perhaps
it is all for the best as it produces
hirst and a larger consumption of the
ater, and a more rapid benefit to the
invalids here. The proof that the
water is doing it, work is seen con
ztantly in the departure of some one
who has been healed, and in the clear
ing of bilious and cadaverous visages.
The man whose heels seem to be
eighted down, after a gallon ur so of
the water becomes light and active

The gathering will have no political
significance, but is expected to do
much towerds informing the country
in matters of finance and trade, and
perhaps towards reconciling conflicting
views touching future legislation.
Speeches will be given upon the sub
ject of resumption, revenue, banking,
the growth and wealth of productive
power, currency demands, commercial
needs and the material progress of the
country. The savings banks and trust
institutions of the country will form a
subject of serious consideration, and

Fishing on Saluda-Crops-Roy
DEAR HEEAL): I was recently in
vited to participate in a fishing excur
sion on Saluda; as I am particularly
fond of that amusement I joyfully ac
cepted the invitation. I was also
pleased to depart from our dust.y city
and go into the country and there
breathe the fresh and pure air. On
my way I was delighted to see fine
crops all along the route. I thought
as I saw the tasseling and bending
corn that our farmers were waking up
from that drowsiness which has held
them spellbound for the long period of
about fourteen years, and that now
they would clearly see that the only
way to become prosperous was to do
away with so much cotton. On the
next day we were to have our grand
fish. We arose early and made the
necessary preparations. As Bouk
night's Ferry was the place appointed
for us to assemble we made our way
thither. The party, in part, had al
ready assembled. After waiting for
an hour we were joined by the others.
T'he party consisted of M~'essrs. Can
non, Adams, Boyd, of Edgefield, Her
bert, Boyd, Crouch, Boulware, Schum
pert, Long and your correspondent.
We crossed the river and everything
being made ready we began. The
frst haul we made we were very suc
essful, caught a very large -gar. I,
f course, thought it a very fine fish
and good for no other purpose than to
eat, but to my astonishment I was
told that I was mistaken. My soul
sank within me because I had been
picturing in my mind what a grand
ime I would have when that gar was
properly prepared. We seiued from
place to place without any great suc
ess. The hour for dinner having ar
rved we partook of one of the best
efforts of the domestic art that it has
ver been our pleasure to behold. Of
ourse after dinner we all felt better
nd a proposition was made to con
inue the fishing. One proposed one
lace and one another, but it was final
y decided that we should repair to
Beaverdami. After a tiresome ride

ne hauls. Night was now about to

the fish were disposed of, some re
ceiving sticks and others fish. We
were glad once more to enjoy the quiet
of the house of our host. The next
day we were to leave all these pleas
ures and return hon, but after care
ful deliberation we determined to re
main one day Lnger in order that we
might make some calls on the fair la
dies that inhabit that part of our fer
tile County. You see, MIr. Editor, that
we take our time about everything, at
least Walter does, for doubtless you
think that we could have done all this
in a day. We made the long intend

The Old Jail Key Again.
Interesting Reminiscences of the Old Jail.
BY T. P. SLIDER.
On the 18th of June we came out
in the HERALD with a brief sketch of
the "Old Jail Key," which while it
may not have been interesting to the
dime reader, yet was pleasant to the
gray haired sire, whose associations
while they are with the present are
also linked with the past. It seems
to have created some little inter
est, why we cannot say, unless it
be that men delight rather with
whatever is connected with human
suffering and human misery. This
one said, so and so was not a stone
.cutter, as if' it makes any difference
whether a man was a Crispin or not,
if he assisted in making a pair of
shoes, suffice it, he helped to make
the shoes. Theu another said, you
left out this-can a man put in what
he don't know ? Then we got one or
two letters from a distance. One asks,
why did you leave out Capt. Jas.
Bonds. WVel! that's 'a fact. Why
did we ? We didn't know, for our in
formers overlooked it. Then anotber
writes, Bob Wright was jailor-never
heard of it-and can say from authori
ty he was not ; so, irrepressible-you
were wrong in this, respect, and you
too are mistaken. Is it not so, Irre ?
Pink Harris was under Bonds. Then
another says, there were two more cells
or rooms on the Northern side. That's
right, and we found out this since.
We thought to ourselves as we con
cluded the last paragraph ; now if we.
had written something about Aveleigh,
the old Presbyterian Church, or the
old Methodist Church, that has been
made into a new one ; where once di
vine service was wont to be held ;
where the voices of the congregation
rung out in pious hymns of praise ;
where the gospel was expounded by
Dannerly, Boyd, Dunwoody, Pickett
and McSwain to perishing souls;
where used to assemble the good old
fathers and mothers, who lifted up
their voices in earnestness and prayed
and joined their hearts together in the
worshiping of God ; and omitted
some slight circumstance in regard to s
the piety and goodness of this one and
that one; of the excellency of some
minister ; would any one have taken
upon himself the trouble to have said,
By the Gods ! you have failed to por- I
tray some of the good qualities that
distinguished so and so, and omitted
a good deed performed by that oldc
Noah or Moses or Abraham. lie was I
a righteous man. He was a good man, C
honest, pious, sincere. No ! no!
The good that men do dies with them,
the evil is not forgotten.
So with this old key. It was an
evil genius, so with the old jail; it
was a place of confinement for~ crime r
and offense-not of worship. It was
a place of punishment-not of happi
ness- It was a place connected with i,
human sorrow, human grief-brought
about by human frailty. The charac. hi

In vengeance, gloating on another's pain." ]~
All tmr infnrrnation wa~ (ibtained 1;
linked by many a hidden chain, came
rising up on memory's mirror. For
instance, in the case of Word and
Williams, who were cotifined in jail
No. 1, made their escape, says )r.
Ruff. through and by the assistance of
one Lewis, a Yankee clock peddler, to
whom they gave $200 and a pair of
horses, who furnished them with an
ingenious little saw with which they
sawed through the iron bars, and a
liquid with which they painted over
the indentations so as to keep it con
,ealed until the proper time arrived,
which was on the snowy night alluded
to already, when Lewis, who was
ready with two horses, gave the signal,
hey removed the bars, got out of the
windows silently, mounted the horses
ind fled. Word was afterwards heard
)f in Dublin, Ireland.
There was another escape from jail
No. 2, in the case of Graham, who
ad been tried and convicted for horse
tealing and sentenced to be hung. In
ihe meantime, pending the hour of
lxecutiou, it so happened that a negro
man by the name of Bob Caldwell,
aid to be crazy, was in the debtor's
oom, which had free access to the
,ells on the outside; in passing by,
eard Grahaw talking or singing to
bimself, stopped and asked him if he
lid not have a sand box in his cei.
Upon receiving an affirmative answer.
e spoke out to him, "You white fool,
ext time Price cum up, when he
)pen de door trow sand in he eye."
ure enough, next morning Price sent
ip a ian by the name of Beadle to
ring out the slops from the cells.
Re no sooner opened Graham's cell
loor than he threw two handfuls of
and in his eyes, and- made good his
Iscape from the cell and jail. As
-raham run out, Bob halloed, "Go it,
jraham !" In a few moments a great
rowd had. collected, among them-was
Dr. Ruff, who says old Bob kept cry
og out, "I tole Graham to trow dust
n he eye. By God! Graham gone,
lory Hallelujah !" Graham was af
;erward recaptured on an island in the
noree, brought back and his sentence
~om muted to several hundred lashes
>n the back.
In regard to the old. jail, No. 2,
:here were two more cells on the
orthern s'de than we mentioned.
3nc on each side of the stairway, but
;hey were not considered safe. In
~hese sometimes were put persons con
ied by the Magistrate for slight of
ences. We have heard of two who
were put there for a short time for
;iply rocking, on a certain occasion,
soiled doves. These cells were used
rincipally for depositing slops and

privilege of going to and fro from the
ail by giving security not to pass cer
ain bounds. This was called within
al bounds. On one occasion an old
ady told us of a certain man who was
prisoned for debt within this old
ail, but was allowed jail bounds. He
vas a writing master and while within
>ounds got up a school, and gave his
rst lessons within the debtor's room
if this old jail, afterwards he changed
t to the Court House. The jailor,
?ice, was one,. of his students also.
rhere is no such thing now. What
n anomaly is human life, human laws
sad human society-verily ! verily !
e are of such stuff as dreams are
So much for the old jail key and
he granite jail. So much for human
uriosity and human sympathy.
Hlow Women Would Vote.
Were the question admitted to the
allot, and women were allowed to

as used Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
ription would vote it to be an un
ailing remedy for the diseases pecn
lar to her sex. Dr. Pierce has re
eived hundreds of grateful testi
aonials of its curative power.

How sad it is for living friends to bid adieu
ithis life to youth, manhood or old age,
rack down by the shafts of death; yet there
some consolation in the thought that we
ave seen them and knew them. But bow
uch more so is the grief of parents for the
eet babe, their first born, who never felt
e unkind breath of a blasting wind, who
as their joy, their hopes; when they turn
him-to see the vision vanish-scarcely
lieving that-he is not there! Little WIL
