THE GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE.
Governor Thompson's message to
the General Assembly, is a well
written document of considerable
He first treats of the State fi
nances and shows ttat we have
every reason for congratulating
ourselves. He shows that the pub
lic debt is being gradually dimin
ished, while there has been a grati.
fying increase in the valuation of
taxable property. He says that
under our present tax laws the
burden of taxation is made to weigh
unequally-that the present system
-of assessment is cumbersome and
not suited to our people. He sug
gestes that a com>iission be ap
pointed to report at the next session
of the General 'Assembly a well
matured scheme for the assessment
and taxat'on of property. The
amount of property returned for
taxation in 1882 was $145,442,292 ;
the amount returned for 1883 is:
His review of the condition of
public education in the State is
thorough, and he thinks the need
for public schools is a pressing
one. He suggests that such appro.
priations should be made as will in
erease the efficiency and promote
the development of the State Uni
versity and the Military Academy.
He suggests that each county
should bear the expenses of its
insane paupers in the Lunatic Asy
lum, and that those lunatics who
are not entitled to charity should
pay for their own maintenance.
He thinks that the Penitentiary
should be enlarged so that the con
victs may be worked under the im
* hediate supervision of the officers
of that institution. He condemns
the practice of leasing convicts to
S.contractors. He says that, while
the Penitentiary has become rev.
enue producing, it is designed to
prevent and punish crime, not to
swell the public revenue.
He says the present militia force
is sufficiently large, for all purposes,
but its more thorough organization
and discipline and increased effi
ciency are greatly to be desir$d.
The new schedule adopted by the
Railroad Commission has not been
in operatiori long enough to enable
him to offer suggestions as to the
modification of the laws.
lie thinks that proper steps
should be taken to make a credita
ble display of the resources of our
State at the Cotton Centennial Er
position in New Orleans, in Decem
ber 1884-and thinks that the ex'
hibition should be made through the
departments of agriculture.
While the completion of the State
House must be left to the future,
he suggests that the roof should be
so repaired and constructed as to
prevent injury to the walls.
He thinks the State should defend
her officers in the election trials,
and earnestly recommends that the
expenses of the political prisoners
be paid by the State.
He closes by calling attention to
the encouraging progress which has
been made in the last few years in
*the development of manufactures
-and improved methods of agricul
ture in our State. The improved
financial condition of our people is
seen in the fact that at the close of
the last fiscal year, the amount of
taxes collected, exceeded by $126..
939,35 the amount collected for the
preceding year on the same levy.
WET ANiD DRY.
The "wet" ticket prov-ed itself
stronger than the "dry" in Green
ville, by 80 votes.
Spartanburg has determined to
try another year "dry."
Cheraw goes "wet" by a majority
of 40 votes.
The "drys" in Charlotte bet their
money on the bob-tail horse and
rwon e'he election.
& The Edgefield Advertiser says on
the authority of Mr. H. H. Hick
man, that there are enough idle ne
groes in Augusta, Ga., to make
8,000 bales of cotton. Why is it
everything runs into cotton ? How
much richer to-day is the country
than it was twenty years ago from
the cottn plantingr?
A resolution has been adopted
which provides that no bills shall
be introduced in the General As
sembly after the tenth instant.
This seems to indicate that the ses
sion will be short, and it will of
course please the people. We are
not of those who clamor for short
sessions, without regard to the
amount of work that is to be done.
Few things are so much calculated to
produce discontent and dissatisfac
tion under the laws, as hasty and
therefore ill-advised legislation. The
legislati:re should take sufficient
time for deliberating as to the char
acter and need of laws about to be
enacted, and these laws should be
justly, consistently and compactly
framed so that it will not be necessa
ry to tinker at them year after year.
Whatever the good of the State de
mands in the way of legislation
should be done, and done deliber
ately. But, while the legislature
should not be driven forward by a
foolish popular clamor for short
sessions, it is equally true that it
should not prolong the session un
The political trials in Columbia
afford a spectacle such as is seldom
seen in any civilized country. A
judge who is, in these trials, a strang
er to justice,-two district attorneys
who, acting on the presumption that
the accused is guilty, pack their ju
ries and exclude the operations of
law from the Court,-and a jury
composed- of Republicans and
Greenbackers, selected by Mel
ton and Speer because they expect
them to be as pliant as wax in their
hands-these make up a court or
ganized for the purpose of convict
ing accused Democrats, regardless
of their guilt, or innocence. Judge
Bond, contrary to all law, as well as
all fair practice, allows the district
attorneys to "stand aside" every
Democratic juror who is called, al
though in doing so he overrules
his own decision on a former occa
sion, and the decision of Chief Jus
tice Waite. This Court is a traves
ty on justice-but it has one re
deeming feature; Judge Bryan re
fuses to assent to the rulings of
the infamous Bond, and this will
carry the questions of law to the
United States Supreme Court.
Pending the appeal, the accused par
ties wili not be imprisoned.
Governor Thoripson says, very
properly, that our tax laws are cum
bersome, and that they weigh un
equally upon the people. He sug
gests, that a commission be ap
pointed to introduce a better sys
tem at the next meeting of the
The subject of taxation is the
most difficult and the most fruitful
of discontent, that calls for legisla
tion. And it cannot be denied that
our present tax laws, notably those
providing for the assessment of
property, are unequal and unjust in
their operations. Our boards of
equalization may be well-meaning
in putting a valuation upon -the
property to be assessed, but they
are not just and fair. They at
tempt, we believe, to strike an aver
age in assessing the lands oif each
kind, in a township, and, in so do
ing, they do what no just law ever
did, or ever will approve. We
should be pleased, with the rest of
the people, to see ! adoption of
just and fair tax laws.
LIEUT. GARLINGTON INJURED.
By telegraph to the News andc
Courier we get the painful intelli
gence that this gallant young Caro
linian and a native of our county,
while riding in the Soldier's Home
Grounds, in Washington on the 28th
ult., was thrown from~ his horse and
seriouisly injured. Hle was carried
to the house of Gen. Sturgis, where
he received medical attention. His
shoulder was dislocated and his
knee cap fractured. His connection
with the Proteus affair has rendered
his name household. Our sympathy
is extended to his afflicted family.
We are happy to say that Gen.
Garlington has received a dispatch
from his son, which gives him the
pleasing assurance that his wounds
were simply slight cuts on his head
and a contusion on his right leg, and
that he is doing well.
Up to the present time the Geni
eral Assembly seems to have de
voted Itself principally to the dis
cussion of new counties. So little
has been done thus far, that we are
inclined to ask whether the mem
bers of the G. S. have not been at
tending the political trials.
King Alcohol has had a long
reign and he has been regarded as
secure in the arbitrary exercise of
his power. Butl , town after town,
in this State, is falling into the line
of prohibition, and the awakening
on the subject of no license is full
of promise of better things.
THE FIRE FIENDS WORK.
On the 28th an explosion took
place in the wholesale drug house
of Meyer Brothers in Kansas City,
which was destroyed. Loss $200,000. .
Ten stores were burned at Port
Portage, Main, the loss not ascer
A cotton fire occurred in Baltimore
on the 28th, the loss is roughly esti
mated at $95,000, and was insured.
An incendiary fire at Springfield,
Mass.,. burned a furniture and
grocery store, at a loss of $45,000.
The town of Paris, Ohio, was
burned on the 27th. All of the
stores except -the bank were con
sumed. Loss $150,000. Insurance
A Hotel at Watertown, N. Y.,
fell a prey to the flames on the 28th.
The Cortland House at Cortland,
N. Y., and a block of buildings were
destroyed on the 21st. Loss $35,
A five story Boston Hotel was
destroyed by fire on the 29th. The
inmates escaped in their night
clothes. Loss $45,000.
A fire occurred at Ocala, Fla., on
the 29th by which a large portion of
the town was destroyed, the Banner,
office included. Loss over $200,
000, insurance small.
A fire broke out in the Windsor
Theatre, 54 Bowery, New York, on
the night of the 29th. Several
adjacent buildings were destroyed.
SUICIDE OF THREE SISTERS.
Perhaps a more extraordinary
suicide was never heard of than
that which is reported from Venice.
Three young ladies went out, took
their passage to the Lido, were ob
served to be very melancholy during
the journey, and ended by drowning
themselves. They appear to have
taken their own lives, two out of
melancholy and from tedium vitce,
the third out of sympathy and for
the sake of company, They had
lost their mother, one of them had
weak sight, another was subject to
fits, and they had all been reading
"I Promessi Sposi," the one Italian
book which most English school
girls have read. The least afflicted
of the sisters was a girl of great
beauty. Her part should have been
to cheer up her sisters, to whisper
sursum corda, and suggest visits to t
the theatre or other ways of dissi
pating gloom. But the third sister,
the .young and beautiful one ac
companiLd the others and shared
their fate. Venice ittnot a place to i
make any but a sentimental tourist
melancholy. The "ghost by the
sea, so pale, so quiet," of Mr. Rus
kin's rhetoric is a very enjoyable a
town to live in. This makes the at
determined conduct of the three
girls all the more inexplicable.

The seven Sutherland sistes,
now living in St. Louis, have ri-~
son to be proud of their hair. Their a
capillary attractions are described y
as follows: Sarah N. Sutherland, -
the eldest, has long, massive and t
jet-blad~k hair, falling below the
waist ; Miss Victoria, whose hair is
the longest worn by any woman in
the world, shows a growth reaching
to a length of seven and a half feet
long ; Miss Isabella's hair is more i,
than six feet long ; Miss Grace's '
reaches a length of almost six feet; a
Miss Naomi's hair, which almost ~
touches the ground when she stands c
erect, is the most massive and beau- C
tiful ever seen upon a woman's I<
head; it is fully six inches through,
and when spread out covers her ~
completely, like a cloak. Miss g
Dora's hair is abundant and five 0*
feet long. Miss Mary is the young- s1
est, her hair has already attained a
wonderful growth, and is rapidly sl
tending toward such length and i
massiveness as will make it the
most wonderful capillary decoration
the world ever saw.
THE SAINTS IN UTAH.
SAT LAKE, November 29. -
John Taylor, president of the Mor
mon Church, in an interview yester
day said that he did not propose to
resign at present in anybody's
favor. It has been rumored that he
would resign in favor of Cannon,
so as not to allow a split between
the church and the co-operative t
store. He says that all is harmony d
and prosperity in the church. Three e
hundred missionaries are at work b
all over the world with great suc- e
cess, and Mormonism is bound to ti
prevail, especially in the United f
States. More converts have been s
brought to Utah in the past two sea- n
sons since the passage of the Ed
munds bill than in any four years a
before. The Church organ copies n
the Clevelsnd and Anti-Polygamy ti
societies' constitution, and adds:b
If this secret abomination initiated
at Cleveland shall spread all over b
the country surely the hypocrisy of 3
a nation, steeped as it is in the a
slough of iniquity, shall bring upon o
it the swift judgment of offended a
Many wonder why the brute erc- s
ation excel mankind as a rule when u
it comes to a question of health.
Investigation quickly asceratins the
cause. lIt is because the brute nht
urally obeys every law of health,
while mankind is constantly degen
erating to excesses of our ancestors
and our own idad'e4ual imprudence.
Sudden expos& '. extreme clina
tic influences, g.attony, improper
food, alcoholic stimulants, over ex

anxiety, care, etc., all have a marked
effect on the human system. Be
