Wipe Out the Barrooms.
The Reflections of a Lafy on the Execution of
Bates at Barnwell.
To the Edior of the News and
Courier Deeply and profoundly
grateful for the noble stand you have
taken against drinking and gambling,
I felt moved to give voice to that
gratitude through your largely gir
culated paper, and to urge you by
every high and noble incentive which
love of country and love of man can
inspire to carry on the crusade till
those licensed dens of corruption
-barrooms-are no longer allowed to
pollute the air we breathe, but are
swept away with the besom of destruc
tion. This is a "Black Letter Day"
in the history of Barnwell. Though
the sun shines brightly, the birds are
chirping merrily and the breath of
the flowers ascending as incense to
God, the sunshine seems a mocking
and the song of the birds grates harsh
ly. There is sadness and gloom in
every home. In one short hour a
young man, whose hands are reeking
with the blood of murder, will die a
felon's death. What caused this fear
ful deed? Whiskey ' Maddened by
the poisoned cup, he recklessly took the
life of another, against whom he had
no enmity. Is not the man who sold
him the poison doubly the murderer ?
Will he not have the blood of both
the victim and the murderer upon his
soul? And perhaps a third, for the
mother of the murderer lies, as it is
supposed, upon her death-bed. The
sword which pierces her son has
pierced her own soul. In the black
ness of her despair she recalls his in
"Once he was pure as.theinorning dew,
As he knelt at his mother's knee;
No face was so bright, no heart more true,
And none was so sweet as be."
And in anguish unutterable she cries
out, -'0, where is my boy ?" And
then the picture rises before her, of
that idolized boy in a dungeon cell,
manacled with- fetters, and there dy
ing e shemeful death. And his soul
-0, God I that never-dying soul
where will it spend eternity ? Is it
any marel that she is dying of a
broken heart ? And the barkeeper
and the barrooms are the cazse. 0,
fathers and mothers of' our land,
think of our innocent little ones grow
ing up exposed to such dangers.
Think of your sons, already old
enough to be ensnared, and use your
influence to implore our legislators 'to
no longer permit this flery-Moloch to
consume the youth of our land. From
the depth of a woman's heart these
words have come. God send them to
the hearts of all who read.

Terrife ^Hurricane in Southwestern Xis
ST. Louis, April, 19.
Passengers who passed through
Marshfield on St. Louis and San
Francisco Railroad- at half-past 8
o'clock last night-, give a few facts
concerning a terrible disaster which
occurred there yesterday. A man
who came to the depot at the edge of
the town while the train was there,
reported .that at half-past 6 o'clock a
furianzs hurricane struck the place and
levelled all that part of the town ly
ing west of the centre square flat to
the ground. The debris immediately
took fire in several places, and the
flamee could be seen at some half
dozen places by the passsengers on
Forty deada.bodies bad been taken
out and many 3more were supposed to
be buried in the ruins-or burned up.
There were also many living still im
prisoned in the debris of fallen build
inigs. All the physicians of the town
were killed except two, and there was
great need of doctors, to attend the
wounded, of whom it was said there
were some 2,000.- A relief train with
twenty physicians and nurses and full
of sqPiles left Springfield, Missouri,
this . morning for Marshfield, and
probably other trains will arrive dur

The Presidential Aspirants.
The Commonwealth, published at t
Richmond, Va., and edited by Wm.
L. Royal, one of the most talented t
men of the South, gives some very
sensible points in regard to the
Presidential nominations. Its cor- r
respondent, L. Q. Washington,
writing from Washington City, re
views the field on both sides in a I
clear and forcible manner. He a
says that Sherman will make no
run-that it is doubtful whether he l
can carry his own State ; that Blaine
will be left far behind in his race t
with Grant, and that the latter will
certainly be the nominee of the Re
publicans at Chicago. He does not
share in the opinion that Grant
will be a weak candidate, but thinks
that he would make the best run of 1
any man the Republicans could
nominate. The opposition to the
"third term' is only a "family af
fair"; those Republicans who will
oppose Grant on this ground as the
candidate will readily support him j
as the Republican nominee. This 1
opposition to a "third term" is not
as strong as their opposition to
As to th3 Democratic candidates, i
he says, "If Tilden is pitted against
Grant he will be beaten overwhelm
ingly." i.Hancock would make no
run against Grant: against any
other man he would stand a fair
chance of election; he has fine ex
eentive ability, large civil experi
eince and is popular,- 'but if these
two military men were pitted.against
each other thousands of voters
would say, "If we must have a mnil
itary man for President we prefer
the biggest and most renowned."
He thinks that Judge Field, of Cal
ifornia, one of the Justices of the
U. S. Supreme Court is the pro
per man. He says the candidate
should fulfill the following con
ditions: 1st, he should be a Dem
ocrat of consistent record, or he
might lose a large per cent. of
the party vote, as Greeley did in4
1872; 2nd, he should be a North
ern Democrat who favored the war,
or the other side would cry him
down as a rebel sympathizer ; 3d,
he should be a hard money Demo
crat, or he will fail to get the sup
port of the capitalists and business
men of the East ; 4th, he should be
acceptable to the different wings
and elements of the party in New4
York State; 5th, he should be a
man of clear record in life, and of
known probity and ability ; 6th, he
should be a man who woulia take
the seat if elected. All these re-]
quirements, the Commonwealth says,
meet in Judge Field.
Has any one interviewed Senator
Lipscomb on the -subject -of the
Edgefield shooting ? The views of
this humanitarian would be of great
interest. The Newberry papers
should attend to this important
matte.-Summnit Courier. . 1
The Newberry papers prefer to1
attend to their own business. The
Summit Courier which, (for the in
formation of any person interested)
is published in Lexington County,
has had a great deal to say abott
Senator Lipscomb and the conceal
ed weapons bill, and has got off
some fine (?) hits at the Senator's
expense. The Editor of the Sum
mit paper is quite a wit, in his own
He has gone so far as to charge
Senator Lipscomb with being re
sponsible for all the homicides that4
have occurred in the State since the
said bill was killed. The Summit
Editor probably thinks that the <
Senator defeated the bill. He
should keep better posted; the bill
passed the Senate. Senator Lip
scomb did oppose it, and he did it
conscientiously. What his grounds
of opposition were we do not know.
The bill was defeated on its final I
reading in the House by four votes.

Maj. R. H. Temple, for the past

ocs this week to Virginia to take
osition as Chief Engineer of the
ichinond & Allegbany R:. R. His
hort connection with the G. & C.
SR.. was very creditable to him;
e filled the position with marked
bility. His skillful management of
he road and his courteous bearing
ave rendered him very popular all
long the line. We hope the road
vill always have so efficient a Su
ierintendent. Mr. J. W. Fry, for
aerly Superintendent of Super
tructure on the Richmond & Dan
ille R. R., succeeds Maj. Temple.
le is quite a young man, but has
xperience. The new purchasers of
he road do not get possession till
hey pay the first installment, which
hey can do any time within ninety
lays from the 15th of April, the
lay of the sale. The new manage
uent will probably make many
hanges when it goes in.
A great deal is being said just
ow about the contemplated road
rom Greenville to Laurens. It is
-eported, on good authority, that
he Piedmont Air Line has made a
rery liberal proposition in connec
ion with this matter, viz., that if
he people of Greenville and Lau
-ens will grade the road the Air
Line will lay the track and put on
he rolling stock. The road be
ween Greenville and Laurens could
e built cheaply: the grading for
iearly the whole distance would be
very light. If the Air Line get the
'oad from Greenville to Laurens it
vill then buy the Laurens Road in
Lugust, making a straight line be
;ween Greenville and Newberry,
hirty miles shorter than the pres
nt route by the G. & C. road. This
s all talk yet, but the thing looks
;o plausible that we cannot hell
>t think that it will amount tc
nore than talk soon.

Our Washington Letter.
WASHINGTON, D. C.,
April 21, 1880.
The two Houses of Congress have
been in wrangles for the past week
over various questions. The Senate
is listening to speeches about the Ge
neva award, or what remains of it
some ten million dollars. Senators
Blaine, Carpenter, Thurman, Jones,
of Florida, and Edmuads have spoken,
and Eaton and. others will speak.
Senator Conkling has not so far got
beyond asking the various speakers
questions, but is said to contemplate a
speech on the subject. This Senator
has been nothing but an animated in

Political history is being made rap
idly this month. In the Democratic
party yesterday was a day of impor
tance, being that of the New York
State Democratic Convention. The
delegates selected are unequivocally
for Tilden, but are at the same time
net men who will pursue a phantom.
If at any. time the nomination of Til
den at Cincinnati should appear to
them to be inexpedient, they are of
the class of men who will know what
to do, and when to act, and will have
the courage to act. Of the body of
men who met at the same time and in
the same city as the Democratic Con
vention, and called themselves Demo
crats, it can only be said that they
have made a mistake as to the name
to which they are entitled. Such of
them as have any honest Democratic
sentiments will be found acting inside
the party this fall. The others will
benefit the party by leaving it.
Among Republicans everything
points to Grant as the candidate.
Sherman has Ohio, and, probably,
scattering votes in the South. His
friends claim 200 votes at the Chicago
Convention on the first ballot. They
would gladly compromise on fifty.
Blaine has Maine, Iowa, Kansas, Ne
braska, Rhode Island, part of Connec
ticut, Texas, Pennsylvania. New York,
and stands a good show for some Illi

So much history has been made in
the present nmonth, it is not by any
means certain who will be the Demo
cratic Presidential candidate. The
party has excellent material, and much
of it, to select from. But as it knows,
or -thinks it knows the candidate
against whom it must nominate, and
that, I suppose, was the governing
reason for calling its Convention late
in June, after the Radicals held theirs.
Democrats can now come to a conclu
sion upon their own candidate. Those
most in the ILast are Hancock, Tilden,

tirely different. Newberry once had
a membership of 982 members. What
has she got to-day with double her
population ? The State had 20,000.
How many has she to-day with double
her population ? What is to be done ?
Something must be done to bring
about reform, or the people of South
Carolina will all kill themselves drink
ing bad liquor. A great physician in
Paris says spirituous liquor must be
regarded as the greatest curse ever
inflicted on nature. Spirits induce
severe dyspepsia, obstructed and hard
ened liver, dropsy and more than half
of all our chronic diseases. Dr. Trot
ter salys, amidst all the evils of human
life no cause of disease has so wide a
range or so large a share as the use of
spirituous liquors. Drunkenness re
senmbles certain hereditary family and
contagious diseases. Four brothers
who were born of sober ancestors were
drunkards. Is that not the case at
this time ? Drinking in acute dis
eases excites fevers. This has been
remarked in all the yellow fever epi
demics which have visited the cities
of the United States. Hard drinkers
seldom escape, and rarely recover. I
consider entire abstinence from ardent
spirits in any form as the only safe
guard against its deleterious effects.
Without such abstinence there can be
no safety; the occasional use of spirit
uous liquors has destroyed its tens of
thousands. I believe that an entire
abstinence from ardent spirits is abso
lutely necessary to the enjoyment of
sound health ; that the moderate use
of ardent spirits is the exclusive cause
of many diseases. Drinking ardent
spirits produces a chronic inflama
tion of the brain, the stomach and the
liver, the immediate consequenees of
which are mania a pot u. I believe
that a large number of the cases of
insanity are attributable to intemper
ance. Look at our Courts. Many of
the criminal cases may be directly as
cribed to intemperance. Two men
were tried in BarDwell at a late Court
for killing men when druuk. One
has been hanged ; the other will be.
The same in Spartanburg, and many
other Counties I might name. If thisj
excessive drinking of spirituous liquors
in the State is not stopped I would be
in favor of a total exclusion of the
article from the State. What lhappi
ness, virtue and productive industry
to our State would take place. Hap
piness in our State is blasted by the
use of ardent spirits. I would judge
that there is a greater tax paid for
ardent spirits than to the State gov
emnent. The effects of dram drink
ing on our colored people are disas
