SENATOR BUTLER AND THE PUB
LIC SCHOOLS.
A few days ago, while the Blair
educational bill which asks federal
aid for education in the States, on
the basis of illiteracy, was under
consideration, Senator Butler made
a fierce onslaught upon the bill
This is a surprise to his friends and
a source of regret to the citizens of
the State whose agent he is, and
who have been led by his public ut
terances to look upon him as the
champion of the very measure
which he now seeks to defeat.
If this had been the Senator's
first public expression of his views
on the subject of national aid for
education in the States, it would
not have caused great surprise
while it might have created some
regret, for he, as well as others, has
the right to entertain and freely ex
press his own opinions. But in
1882 Senator Butler himself intro
duced a bill seeking to set aside
all money arising from patents and
sales of public lands, for the pur
pose of educating the people. That
bill, which he strenuously advocated,
did not differ in principle from that
which he now bitterly opposes and
pronounces unconstitutional.
In 1882 the General Assembly
of this State adopted a unanimous
resolution urging our Senators and
Representatives in Congress to use
all their endeavors to obtain fed
eral aid for the promotion of our
public schools. Hugh S. Thompson
went to Washington and earnestly
pressed the claims, while urging the
needs, of our State. In the begin
ning of 1883 Senator Butler pre
sented, in support of his educa
tional bill, memorials asking for
federal aid; and, he informed the
Senate that these memorials rep
res3nted the very best element in his
State, being signed by the Gover
nor, the State officers, Senators,
Representatives, college faiculties,
and other influential and respecta
ble men throughout the State. He
said that, while they prayed for the
enactment of his bill, they would
be satisfied with another of like
character. Now he is opposed to
federal aid, and prefers to rely up
on the pluck and energy of his own
State, asserting that we do not
need the money which the bill
seeks to appropriate.
When Senator Butler extols the
pluck and energy of our State--her
great reverses and the heroic spirit
of endurance with which she has met
them, his words are grateful to the
feelings of all Carolinians. But
whgen he says that we are able to
take care of ourselves, and do not
need aid for the promotion of our
schools; above all, when he fiercely
attacks the very measure which
aims to give us the aid for which
we have sought, he ceases to be
statesmanlike and shows a vault
ing state pride which foolishly over
leaps itself and the immedIiate ben
efits held out, to his State by the
Blair educational bill.
The man who says that public
schools are not a public blessing is,
it seems to us, a victim of that
kind of stupidity against which the
gods themselves are said to be pow
erless. And the man who says
that we neither want nor need na
tional aid for our public schools,
plants himself in direct opposition
to the well known public sentiment
of our State. We do need help,
and our need is pressing, If our
citizens were all white we might
take our position with Senator But
ler; but unhappily it is quite c ther
wise. As a direct result of the
war 4,000,000 slaves were liberated
and elevated to the rights of citi
zenship in the South. Unfit for
self-government, and strangers to
civil liberty, they were a dead
weight upon the body politic. They
now number more than 6,000,000;
and forty per cent of the voters of
the States in which they are found
in greatest numbers cannot read
the ballots they cast. The national!
government nourished the institu-!
tion of slavery for three-fourths of1
a century, and it should now help
to enlighten this mass of illiteracy
which is a standing menace to our
civil intitutions.
Our State now appropriates
abont $COQOn f0 Ir public educa
tion. It is estimated that there
are 250,000 children of'school age
in the State, whose primary educa
tion requires at least-$5 each. This
gives the amount needed for the
support of our schools at $1se050,
000, or more than twice as much as
our State in her present condition
is able to appropriate for public ed
ucation. With these facts before
him, and with the well-known wish
es of the State present to his mind,
Senator Butler suddenly turns a
complete somersault, and, to the
utter astonishment of his friends,
even in the Senate, opposes the ed
ucational bill.
Senator Hampton who, with other
Southern senators. is in favor of
the bill, exDressed regret that he
could not agree with hiF colleague
Senator Butler ; we sincerely re
gret that Senator Butler could not
agree with his colleague Senator
Hampton. Meantime his strange
conrse is inexplained.
We are indebted to Commissioner
Butler for a copy of the "Hand
book of South Carolina." We find
it a perfect treasure of 'nformation
of the State. Every thing that is
essential to be known of the State
can be found in its pages. Such a
work is bound to be most valuable
to all who desire information in re
gard to the State, and it will be of
value to our own people in impart
ing a more general knowledge of
our varied resources. The style
of the book is good.

A RIOT IN CINCINNATI.
A very serious riot one of great
magnitude, occurred at Cincinnati
on the '29th ult. William Berner
had been on trial for murder, and
had confessed his guilt, but from
some cause the jury did not put
any faith in his confession, but
found him only guilty of man
slaughter instead of murder. This
verdict so incensed the populace
that a crowd or mob amounting
to 10,000 assembled at Music Hall
to take action in regard to the ver
dict. Strong resolutions were pass
ed in regard to the verdict. From
the Hall the mob began to move to
the jail. The whole police force
was called to the jail, but the mob
refused to move. An attack bad
been made on the jail. At 11
o'clock the military was called out
and entered the jail. The mob was
fired on from the jail, and possibly
from other points as it is stated
that men were killed several squares
from the scene of the riot. The jail
seems to have been set on fire. An
officer attempted to subdue the flamn
es but was instantly killed. Hand
bills were circulated calling for the
formation of Vigilance Committees
in each ward, and warning all crim
inal lawyers and certain bad charac
ters to leave the city. Communism
seems to have held control. A
gun store was robbed and nothing
seemed to appease the mob. The
restless body seems to have moved
without a leader. There was no con
ert of action. The State troops
were called out. The streets were
barricaded, so as to obstruct the ap
proaches to the jail, and positions
assigned to the troops.
A dispatch dated March 30th
says : An incomplete list made
last night gives~the names of twen
ty-two killed and sixty-one wounded
in the riots of Friday night and
yesterday.
All the State troops were ordered
to Cincinnati, and at one time the
number of troops in the city amount
d to $2,500. The number of per
sons killed and wounded is about
200.

FRO3 RANDOM RECOLLECTIONS
OF A LONG LIFE.
By Edwin J. Scott.
[To be Published by Subscription.]
Sixty years ago, Luke Manning,
(Black Luke), a desperado of the
worst kind, was the terror of the
region bordering on Newberry,
Edgefield and Lexington, where he
had committed many outrages, and
some murders, apparently from
pure devilment. He was a native
of Newberry District I believe,
and lived near Saluda on the east
side.
At the risk of being tedious I
will give an account of some of his
adventures.
On a freezing winter morning, he
was fishing for "red horse," in Sa
luda, at a place that he had baited,
exactly opposite toan old, deaf neigh
bor of his, who was similarly em
ployed. The old man had the bet
ter luck, and -as he pulled ont one
fish after another, would hold it up
and call out to Luke that he "didn't
know nothin' about fishin'" Luke
determined to have fish, luck or no
luck, and bidding his old friend
good morning he walked down be
low a bend in the river where he
kept a canoe, and getting into it,
crossed over, cut down a sapling
eight or ten feet long, leaving a
fork at the little end, crept up be
hind the fisherman, who was seated
on a steep, slippery bank, and
waiting till he had hooked another
fish.. placed the forked stick to the
back of his neck, shoved him head
long into the river, which was very
deep, and seizing the string of fish,
carried them home, whilst the old
man was left to save himself if he
could. With great difficulty he
scrambled out half drowned and
half frozen, to find his fish gone and
Luke's sapling, which he had hur
riedly dropped, in their place. This
betrayed him, but when charged
with the assault and theft, he in
sisted that the old man had been
pulled in by the fish.
While a shooting match for beef
was going on one Saturday after
noon, at the Dead Fall, on Hollow
creek a low groggery then kept by
Col. Drury Sawyer, Luke rode up
in a gallop, rifle kn hand, singing at
the top of his voice,
"Fourteen pence in the corner of the
fence,
"And the Hollow Creek boys haint got
no sense;"
then dismounting and tying his
horse to a limb he gave him a cut
saying "He's four years old and
trots already." le began by treat
ing all round, taking several chan
ces for the match and then proceed
ed to make himself at home. wel
coming one with the question,"HIow's
your wife and my children,'' when
another appeared, running and pre
tending to hide behind the house,
while I.e exclaimed, "What have I
done that the devil's come; "asking a
third, "Are you always mad when
you look ugly," and making free of
the defects or deformities of others,
particularly of Col. Sawyer, a red
eyed, nervous little body, who was
lame in the hip-joint. As the day
wore on, .'e continued drinking and
grew more and more contentious
and disagreeable, and when one ob
served that the winter sky looked
red like blood he replied, "Wait
till the shank of the evening
and I'll show something more
like blood by a jug full, for I
feel the devil in me as big as a
meeting house." As was not un
common, the match was prolonged
into the night, with fires burning
at the target and the manrksmiens
stand. At these matches the dis
tance was always one hundred
yards, with a rest. Tlhey were
drinking freely and all more or
less intoxicated, when a quarrel
arose between Manning and Sawyer,
who, irritated beyond endurance by
the repeated and unfeeling allusions
to his crippled limb, said to Luke,
"If 1 was well and of your size,
you darsent treat me so." Tis
Luke denied and after further al
ercation he proposed to put them
both upon an equality by fighting a
duel then and there wilth their rifles,
each to commence loading at the
word "go" and to fire when he got
ready adding "your pally hurts you,
f you refuse this offer '' The other,
though a peaceable man, was as
brave as J ulius Caesar and he ac
epted the challenge. The bystan
ers meantime ceased their clatter
n other matters, andl giving their
attention to the disputants, made
some efforts to adjust the diffieulty.
But Manning swore that he had
ome there to kill somebody and he
ad as lief it should be that lame dog
s any one else. Accordingly. the
ight was replenished and when the
ombatants declared themselves
eady, both expert riflemen, at the
word began to load, knowing that
heir lives depended upon their ex
pedition. They first poured down
he charge of powder, to be fol
owed1 by the ball, wrapped in a bit
f greased rag. which fitted the bore
f the gun exactly and required
some force to push it to its place
with the ramrod. It happened that
Sawyer in his haste and excite
ent got his bullet fast soon after
t entered thme muzzle and all his
fforts failed to move it. To fire the
un in that condition he knew would
ause it to burst, and while lie tugged
ad cursed at the ramrod, Luke, see
ng his difficulty, finished loading and
ith a whoop screamed out, "Now
trapple and d'm you, I'll send you
o hell in a minute'' then dropping
his rifle to a horizontal position, was
n the final act of priming, when one
f Sawyer? frieuds, whose name
as never publicly known, throw
ing a four pound weight, struck him
n the back of his head and knocked
him senseless. And, thus, Luke
annings faouan Adnel ended in his
being laid across his horse and
taken to the house of Jacob Drafts
son.
The last time I saw Manning was
at Lexington as he returned from
Columbia, in charge of the Sheriff
of Edgefield, after an unsuccessful
application to the Supreme Court
for a new trial, on his conviction
for murder, in waylaying and shoot
ing a man named Foutze, while
plowing in his field. It was a cold
drizzly day in December and he sat
beside the Sheriff in a little covered
wagon, handcuffed and shivering,
wrapped in a scotch plaid cloak,
looking to my eyes, like a famished
wolf thirsting for blood. After a
long imprisonment at Edgefield, he
was pardoned and went, I believe,
to Mississippi, where report said he
finally died on the gallows for
another murder.

Climbing the Spiral Stair,
INVISIBLE ARCHITECTURE IN A NEW
ENGLAND PARSONAGE.
"Yes," she said. "our children are married
and gone, and my husbaud:and I sit by our
winter fire much as we did before the little
ones came to widen the circle. Life is some
thing like a spiral stairCase: we are all the
time coming aronnd over the spot we started
from, only one degree further up the stairs."
"That is a pretty illustration," remarked
her fi iend, musingly, gazing into the glow
ing coals which radiated a pleasant heat
from the many windorwed stove. "You know
we cannot stop toiling up the hill, though."
"Surely we cannot, and for myself I don't
find fault with that necesziiy provided the
advance in life is not atiended with calamity
or suffering, for I have had my share of that.
Not long since my health utterly broke
down. My system was full of malaria. My
digestion became thoroughly disordered and
my nerves were in a wretched state. I was
languid, ate a little and that without enjoy.
ing i., and had no strength or ambition to
perform even my light household duties
Medical treatment failed to reach the seat of
the trouble. The disease-which seemed to
be weakness of all the vital organs-progress
ed until I had several attacks whicti my
physicians pronounced to be acute conges
tion of the stomach. The last of these was a
desperate struggle and I was given up to die.
As the crisis had partially passed, my hus
band heard of the merits of PARKER'S
TONIC as an invigorant in just such cases as
mine. I took it and felt its good effects at
once. It appeared to pervade my body, as
though the blessing of new life had come to
me. Taking no other medicine I continued
to improve, and am now in better health
than I have been for a long time."

Analysis by Dr. A. Voehcker, F. R. S., Con.
suiting Chemist Royal Agricultural Socety,
England, shows only a trace of nDtrates in
Blackwel's Bull Durham Tobacco. The soil
or the Golden Helt of North Carolina, In which
this tobacco is grown, don't supplynltratesto
the leaf. That is the secret ofits delicious
mildness. Nothing so pure and luxurious for
smoking. Don't forget the brand. Ilone gen
