The Politieal Aspect in the
It is the nature of mankind to
desire change: akd.- this ia peen
liarly the case with politicians out
of office. To ;their :minds .every
thing is wrong ; the State is always
in danger; the. "people are up
pressed; -the public money i
wasted; the State officers are
banded. together in .a conspizaicy to
keep themselves in office;: there
are rings and combinations and
slates, and all that sort of thing;
and we. are on the eve of a terrible
revolation.anless something is done
to avert it. Before every campaign
the air is thick with such talk. The
great apostles of the people then
.come forth to champiQn the cause
of the poor and oppressed. It is
always.. th.As. They want office,
and they hope to get it by playing
upon the prejudices and passions
of the people. Because no human
government is perfect these agita
tors can always find,. even under
the: very best government, some
cause for complaint~;. it is impossi
ble to please everybody, and every
body but miserable. demagogues
recognize this fact, and are satis
fied when the greatest good is se
cured to the greatest number. The
Southern- States offer an inviting
field to-these demagogues. A large
proportion of the citizens. are igno
rant, and are easily deceived and
led astray. It is easy to persuade
them that their rights are denied
them ; and they readily follow the
leadership of any man who setU
hiaself up as their champion and
inveighs against the established
order of things. It is this fact that
* made Mahoneism successful in Vir
* ginia, and that encourages dema
* gogues in Georgia and South Caro
lina to make the same effort.
That there are evils in our State
* government may be -true ; but that
it is infinitely better than we had
in Radical times and infinitely bet
* ter than can ever be secured by a
combination of Independents and
Rladicals is clear to any man who
has sense enough to think and
* principle enough to care. Our
State officers since 1876 have been
thoroughly competent, patriotic
and honest ; and have been the
choice of tige people. They have
discharged their duties faithfully;
and there can be no just cause of
complaint against them. Our Gen
eral Assemblies.have been composed
mainly of able and competent men,
and their legislation has been, wvith
possibly a few exceptions, wise and
judicious. County affairs have been
i administered honestly and efficient
ly and economically. Our Courts
of Justice have been pure and ex
alted. The rights of every citizen,
regardless of race, color or previous
condition, have been fully protect
ed, and cime has been impartially
punished. It is true she reign of
the Democracy has not brought all
the blessings that wvere expected.
Gen. A. espetd he would get to
fill the Qo.vernor's chair and his
depleted pockets with ,the Gover
nor's salary ; but he has been dis
appointed. CoL B. expected to be
come Secretary of State, or Comp
t roller, or State Treasurer, or some
thring else worth 82.100 a year but
he did not. Mdaj. C. thought that
he deserved to be sent to Congress;
but another was ent. Hon. D. anid.
- 31r. E. and a whole host of .others
were sure that the valuable servicos
they had rendered the Democracy
would entitle them to a seat on the
floor of the Heuse or of the Senatei
but their fellow-citizens did not
think so. And a great multitude
had fixed their eyes in hope upon
the County offices :but many we
*disappointed." To the minds of
many of these the Democratic gov
ernment has been a failure : has
not fulfilled its promises. and has
not come 'up to the expectaiions
that it awakened. But to the citi
zen who loves the State for her own
sake and not for- heri offices : who
rejoices in the happiness and pros
perity of her people :there is abun
dant reason to be~ thankful and to
be resolved that the State shall not
again be relegated to the control of
the negro to gratify the ambition
* and the avarice.of a few disappoink

Theuhldlha mn ile
"n. sneakiug of the negro exodus
from South Carolina, gives, among
r h owfling reasons.. Ast,
that the negrc is universally perse
mt-OAl and'despised by the whites,
Spurpose it is to
keep him in subjection ; 2nd, that
money is freely appropriated for
higher e,1neation, but there are not
half enough school houses to which
negroes can go, and those to which
they can go are kept open for only
brief periods : 3d, "Tie Legisla
ture has passed a stock law which
was devised for the purpose of har
rying the blacks ;" 4th, "A meas
tire is now proposed imposing limi
iations upon the suffrage, which
will disfranchise thousands of blach
-itizens :~ 5th, "The whites have sc
arranged the contract system that
the negroes are nearly always' rob.
bed of the fruits of their labor," and
-are swindled by storekeepers bj

cent. advance upon the first cost oJ
The above is the situation from
one standpoint: the standpoint ol
a rabid Republican newspaper.,
whose mendacity is only equalled
by its vindictiveness.
The situation' from another stand
point is given'in a letter written Lc
the New York Methodist of the 8ti
instant by Rev. Edward Cooke
D.D., of Claflin University, Orange
burg, S. C. Dr. Cooke is a North
ern man and a Republican of s
pronounced type. We quote fron
"cI se' articles occasionally in tht
Nt .apers assuming that th(
Southei-o wlhite's are still unfriendl)
!o the education of the colored peo
ple. This is a mistake. I meet witt
.no influential white citizens who Ii
niot express a deep inter.est in thl
sul,dols for the colored youth. Th,
war left the people poor, and the,
have not had time to recover so as t<
be' able to provide liberally for thi
education of either whites or blacks
I11 the .SouJiern States east of th,
woantaius have good systew; fo
comwon schools, equally good for bot!
rees, and administered with partia!i
ty. This I can affirm of South Caro
lina with contidence. The whites pa:
probably three-fourths of the schoc
tax, and the blacks receive three
fourths of the benefit. For thie wan
of means. these schools continue oi
an- average less than four months ii
the. year. What is needed to meet
he educational wants of such a mas:
of ignorant peo~ple is more money
and this the Southern people havy
not. Cougress ought to take hold o
this matter at once, and make appro
*nriation in proportion to the illiteracy
As respects tbe highcr education o
the colored youth, some of the States
ait least. are disposed to do all you
could well expect."~
WVe see it stated that the Charles
ton News and C'ourier has been soli
to a joint stock company for- $100,
000,..and. that Messrs. Riordan 3
Dawson, the former owners, retair
a controlling interest in the stoci
and entire control of the manage
ment of the paper. This move wil
no doubt put the paper on a stil.
broader basis. The News anc
C'ouricr has been recognized foi
several years as one of the leading
newspapers of the South. It is
enterprising, energetic and ambi
tious, and can always be dependec
on for the latest news. It nevei
contains anything either in the
news or editorial departments thai
is not readable. The editorials are
models of good English, and are
read with pleasure and profit.
The Columbia Register has nc
regrets to express over the coloredc
exodus. but takes the following very
practical and sensible view of the
subject. According to the Census
the excess of the colored population
over the white in 1880 was 213,051.
Estimating the natural increase in
population of whites and blacks, the
excess in 1890 would be 287,553; in
1900, 389,141. With a colored ex
odus of 10.,000 a year the excess in
1900 would be only 114,150.
So far from regretting the exodus
it should be a matter of congratu
lation that the State may thereby
become less of a black republic.
The places of the colored emigrants
will be filled at no distant dlay by

Sumter Spirit of the Times
It becomes our painful duty to chronic

comnnuni!y-1lrs. A. A Gilbert, wife of t
bite distinguished editor of the Sum1
Watchiman, and now the successful pastor
the Methodist Church at Wedgeficld. F
mainy Years Mrs. Gilbert has been one of t
most active and enter prising of the many e
cellent ladies which are the pride and glo
of our town. A member of the Method
Church, she wias one of the leading spirits
3 all church enterprises as well as lending h
cheerful and efficient aid to every good we
proper for her sex.
During the late war Mrs. Gilbert show
the heroism of a true Southern woman. I
