"SENSATION IN COLUMBIA."
We had little to say about the so
called sensation in Columbia, and.
having said that little, we were
silent. We recognized Capt. Lips
comb's legal right to remove his
clerk, and we felt, too, that he had
violated no Democratic principle in
the exercise of that right. True,
the Nabob of the News and Courier
hammered loudly upon the seventh
plank in the Democratic platform,
which prescribes that, in minor
offices, there shall be "a fixed ten
ure of office, and no removals
except for cause." But that plank
leaves the Secretary, after all, the
only judge as to the existence of a
cause, and it nowhere requires him
to publish that cause to the world.
Feeling that it was unjust to im
pugn the motives and impertinent
to demand the cause that led the
Secretary of State to discharge a
elerk in discharging his duty, we
merely said, "N. G. G. says the re
moval caused a sensation in Colum
hia, because Mr. Robertson was an
efficient officer. Has that gentle.
man any ownership in the office be
cause he has served there six years?
Or should he be perpetuated in
office on the ground of efficiency ?
We think not." We thought we
ere stating sound democratic doc
trine; and if we were not, we have
read the teachings of the political
fathers, to little purpose.
But the Orangeburg Times and
Democrat, taking our words as a
text, discourseth thus:
"Does the HERALD apply the
above reasoning to its own affairs ?
Would it discharge a good, faithful
printer because he had served effici
ently for six years to make room
for a '"Dew hand?" We think not.
According to its reasoning the
people of Newberry County should
transfer their patronage from the
HERALD to its competitors, the News
and the~ Obsirver, not because .the
HERALD has not been an "efficient"
guardian of the people's rights, but
simply because it has enjoyed their
patronage for many years and that
it is fair play to let others have it
awhile. So far as the removal of Mr.
Robertson is concerned, we know
nothing about it, but we would
2 regret.very- much to see the civil
service of South Carolina prostitut
ed by making the positions under
it the reward for advancing the in
terests of any political aspirant.
Better, far better, that an officer
"be perpetuated in office on the
ground of efficiency" than that lie
be removed to make room for sqpne
personal favorite of the party hay
the appointing power."
Argument is not needed to show
that what tihe Times says about a
"faithful printer" and tile Newberry
.~' newspapers, has not the remotest
likeness to the subject in hand, or
that there is not the faintest ana
logy between the position of a
printer and a political office. The
fact that the Democrat takes issue
with us does show, however, that it
believes that six years service gives
the clerk "ownership in the office,"
a~nd that Mr. Robertson should have
been "perpetuated in office on the
around of efficiency." There is no
escape from this position. Strange
doctriue for a newspaper that sails
under Democratic colors !
D)oes the discriminating editor of
tile Times regard "efficiency" as the
sole. or even the chief, official virtue?
Uas it fellowed its doctrine to its
legitimate conclusion ? IIas it seen
that that doctrine is at once unwise
and undemocratic ? .Let us see.
You perpetuate the clerk in office on
the ground of' "efficiency." Very
good, proceed. Efficiency is as
meritorious in one officer as in au
other; go you perpetuate t'ie Secre
tayof State in office, on the
ground of efficiency; and, going
still farther, you apply the same
rule to the other State officers. Pres
to!Admirable ! TYou have rendered
-political elections unnecessary, and
"removed the offices beyond tile
reach of the people-who. of course.
have no interest in themi! You
haemade a privileged class and
gvnthe government aimonarchical
Ins and the Outs of a monarchy
the officeholders and the people;
and the Ins may contemptuously
snap their fingers in the faces of
the people, and say, in the elo
quent words of Vanderbilt, "The
public be damned?" Admirable
dloctrine ! Just and wise D)e
miocracy ! Civil service bosh !
As our esteemed contemporary
has disclaimed the Democrat half of c
its head, why not go a step farther, I
and adopt this most appropriate f
motto, Tempora mutantur. 1
"I Don't Remember."
WASINGTOx. June '1.-Mr. Mer
rick continued his argument in the
Star-route case to-day, and upon
taking up the subject of the "J. B. 1
B." check remarked that it. was t
due to Mr. Bedford to say that t
there was no testimony in or out of
this case that in any way implicated
or involved him in Star-route mat
ters. Mr. Belford was an honora- c
ble gentleman holding a high posi
tion in public life, and as current
rumors might be calculated to do
him some damage, he (Mr. Merrick)
made these remarks in reparation
for any- wrong done to him. Mr.
Merrick then took up the evidence
relating to the Dorseys. and pointed
out the improbabilty and inconsis
tency of their several statements.
After referring to the so-called "Red
Book?" of S. W. Dorsey which had
not been produced, he proceeded to
show how Rerdell's statements with
regard to them were corroborated
by circumstances and other evi
dence. Toward the close of the af
ternoon he imitated Ingersoll's re
cent figure of speech with re
gard to the burial of Rerdell by
giving similar fanciful descriptions
of the burial and resurrection of S.
W. Dorsey. "Since they had be
gun to bury men," he said, he
might as well follo* it up. IIe
would bury Dorsey alongside of
Rerdell. His fellow- conspirators
should be mourners over them. le
would erect an arch, one end rest
ing on the grave of Dorsey and the
other end on that of Rerdell, and
then on the keystone of the arch
should be written the epitaph:
'They were delightful and lovely in
their lives and in death they were
not parted.' " Giving a peculiarly
lugubrious and sing-song intonation
to his voice, Mr. Merrick continued :
"And if, notwithstanding counsel's
prayers, Gabriel when he passed
over those graves should blow, and
the corrupt and buried Dorsey
should arise an immortal spirit and
come into that last Grand Court
before the Great Searcher of Hearts,
before whom we must all appear,
and the Great Searcher and All
knowing should ask him, 'Were you
not in the flesh known as Stephen
W. Dorsey?' the spirit would an
swer, 'I don't remember!'
An uproarious burst of laughter
greeted Mr. Merrick's sally, and
after vainly rapping for order, Judge
Wylie adjourned the court.
ARTIFICIAL LIMn PAYMENTS AT
LAST.-The comptroller-general to
day began sending out notifications
to holders of artificial limb claims
against the State, informing them
that these claims would be p)aid on
presentation of orders. On Monday
next the 11th the payments will be
gin. The amount appropriated for
this purpose is $7,000. So far claims
have been allowed to the extent of
$6,310, but others yet unallowel
considerably exceed the appropria
tion. A meeting of the board, (con
.sisting of the Governor, comp
troller-general and chairmnan of the
State board of health,) will be held
in July, and at this meeting many
claims not yet p)assed upon will be
considered. The p)lan of the comnp
troller's office is to pay claims in
the order in which they were pre
sented. Hence all the claims al
lowed will be paid and $690 of
those which may be allowed in July.
The remainder of the later claims
will have to await payment until an
additional appropriation can be
made fo'r the purpose. The follow
ing are the amounts allowed for the
purchase of artificial limbs of differ
ent kinds: For amputation above
the knee $100, below the knee $75;
for amp)utation above the elbow
$60, below the elbow $40. The
largest amount of any single claim
so far allowed is .$200.-N. G. G.
in News and Co:urier-..
SERvED -I RIGHT.-The Lan
taster Ledger says: "A man by
the name of Lee Beaty', who lives
in Union County, N. C.. was taken
from .his horse one day last week.,
in the upper part of this county, by
four or five young men and severe
ly whipped. The young men did
not disguise themselves, but did
the work in day-light. The cause
assigned is that Beaty had been
making loose remarks about some
nice young ladies in the neigh-.
borhood, a thing which should not
be allowed in any community."
CIVIL SERICE REFOuR.-WAsH-.
INGTON, June 7.-The civil service
commission gives notice that comn
petitive examinations for admission
to public service will be held be-1
tween the 10th of June and 3d day
of July at the principal cities in the
Northern and Western States. Any1
person wishing to be examined for
service ini any department in Wash
ington should now send a written re
quest to the civil service commission
for the proper application b)lanks,
which will be supplied.1

A Fire Department at Last.
The citizens' meeting that was held
in the Opera House 31onday afternoon
to consider the propriety and feasibili
ty of establishing a fire department,
was not unusually large; but it was
composed of thoughtful men who knew
their minds. including nearly all the
large tax-payers of the town. It was
not one of your soda water meetings,
all foam and splutter; quite otherwise.
Y. J. Pope. Esq., was called to the
chair and D. O. Herbert. Esq., elected
Secretary. The chairman then stated
that tl engine which has been on trial
here, with 1,000 feet of hose and two
reels, including freight, can be laid
down at the depot for $4,G20-to be
atiU ini six annual instalments, at 7 per
ent. That three tanks of about 60,
000 gallons capacity each, can be made
on the public square for $900. making
the total cost $5,520. That the present
revenue of the town is just stilicient
to meet its ordinary expenses; that
the Council have reached the legal
limit of a two mills tax; that they
have no authority to issue bonds or
levy a special tax; and they therefore
thought it proper to refer this matter
to the citizehs. IIe stated farther,
that a tax of one mill would yield
about >1,000 a year, the taxable pro
perty of the town being somewhat
tnore than $1.000.001). He stated that
a paved rork-wav would be constructed
from the Engine-hottse to one tank, and
the mud would thus be no hindrance.
That the annual expense of keeping
up the department would not be great
and could be paid out of the ordinary
revenue of the town.
It was ascertained that the capacity
of the engine is 325 gallons per minute,
and that it will throw through a 903
hose, feet about 225 gallons a minute
exhausting a 00,000 gallons tank in
about four hours. .
Mr. Mower moved "That the Town
Council be authot ized and directed to
apply to the Legislature for permission
to levy a special tax of one mill an
mally for seven years, for the purpose
of establishing a fire department for
the town of Newberrv, including the
right on the part of the Council to is
sue bonds or make other satisfactory
arrangements with seller of supplies
for department." The resolution was
adopted unanitnoosly and without dis
cussion-in the midst of applause.
'Tis a consummation devoutly to be
"A Blessing in Disguise."

No family should be without ALLcoCK's
PoRoUs PLASTERS; their healing powers are
wonderful and their efficacy far reaching and
lasting. For years past I have seen and
known them to cure and relieve the most
obstinate and distressing cases of rheum
atism, kidney complaint, bronchitis, neural
gia, lumbago, inflammation of the lungs and
throat, paralysis, asthma, spinal weakness,
and coughs and colds. In my own case
they have afforded me almost instant and
permanent relief. ly friends consider them
an invaluable and speedy remedy for all
kinds of aches and pains. They are a bless
ing in disguise; and no wife or mother
should be without them if she values her
peace and comfort and freedom from nerv
ous exhaustion and other ailments. As a
strengthening plaster, also for backaches
and weaknesses, they have no equal. I have
never yet found a plaster so efficacious and
stimulating, or to give so much general satis
faction. .Used in connection with BRAND
RETH'S universal life-giving sand lie-healing

storation to good sound health.

I wish to remind you that I get the best of the mianu
facturers by the use of an argument which always con
vinces them that I am entitled to the best bargains, and ~
largest discounts. That argument is C1ash Down, Qnd

you that I intend to make myself necessary to the good
people of this section, by sharing my' close bargains wvith
