THE LOST CAUSE.
In tho olly of Charleston, South Caro
lipa, tho first Stato to sccodo from tho
Union, uro assembled this week thou
sands of thoso who, from 1801 to 1805,
faced shot and sholl in dofonco of princi
ples of freedom dear to tho heart. Tho
Hag wbioh. thoy followed was furled at
Appomattox, and elnco then its folds
hovo boon only mute emblems of'the
"Lost Causo." For four years tho most
fearful war in history was waged, tho
continent, trembled under tho tread of
armod hosts, as tho Caucasian of the
North and tho Caucasian of the South
mot iu doadly array lt was a conflict
between tho master spirits of tho same
groat raco, a death grapple among giants.
It was brother, going to war against,
brother, each inspired with a spirit of
patriotism nnd devotion to principios
whloh, owing to widely di (Toron t onvi
roumonta, woro honestly conceived and
reduced to practico.
Tho conflict bad become irrepressible.
Tho intellectual giants of the former
generation had spent their forces in vain
in tho halls of Congress and councils of
State. Tho war of words had raged fast
and furious at times for some thirty
yoars between tho two schools which in
sti?\od diametrically opposite construc
tions of tho Federal Constitution. The
great triumvirate, Calhoun, Clay ami
Webster, exhausted their energies in at
tempting to solvo the weighty problem
of statecraft, but passed oi? the stage of
action and slept with their lathers, leav
ing tho burdon of rapidly accumulating
woight to bo taken up by thoso of
woakor hands and smaller minds. After
their oxit ton years of crimination and
recrimination sufficed to lind the whole
Union ablaze with tho warliko spirit.
Nothing short of an appeal to tho arbit
rament of tho sword would sn ill co. The
blood ran hot, and hotter still, until the
dogs of war woro loosed. The die was east,
tho Rubicon wa? crossed, and for four
long, weary years tho dower of tho youth
and manhood of the Month and the North
bivouacked on tho bloody held.
Hut nt last the appeal to the sword
was Bottled, and a final decision had, so
far is a policy of government, or a
principio of right eau bo settled at the
point of tho bayonet. The decision was
adverso to tho Con fed orate Stales, and
notwithstanding tho ineaeulable loss of
blood and treasure, the decision was ac
cepted in good faith by the pcoploof the
South who, having fought to the last
diteh and across it, bowed to the Inevi
table, when their dcplotcd ranks could
no longer stand against tho overwhelm
ing uumbor of their enemy. Hut it was
nu honorable defeat, not one jot or tittle
of self-respect was lost, and every sur
vivor can stand up today and proudly
challenge the world to witness the glory
and prowess of tho "Hoys in Groy," and
render a just tribute of praise to tho
memory of those brave sons of the
Southland who offorod. up their lives as
a willing sacrifice on the altar of tho
"Lost Causo." Their deeds will furnish
rich material for futuro historians, and
their valor will live in story and in song.
God forbid that tho day should ever
como when they would forgotten be.
Sooner lot tho tongue be palsied and t he I
right hand ' forget its cunning. All j
homage, respect and reverence to their
And this will never retard tho progress
of the present nor impede the discharge j
of duty. His sometimes said that a NKW
South is being ushered in upon us; that
the o?.o South, with its traditions ami i
t i I
memories, is no longer equal to the !
linties of tho present hour. Away with j
such stuff I Tho past is sacred, and tie- j
votion to duty never dies. Our future is I
propitious, but tho golden opportunities'
must bo embraced by men who owe alle
giance to principle, and have the courage
togo forward in the fearless discharge
of duty regardless of consequences to
themselves. In short, the spirit of de
votion to manifest duty which was dis
played by our fathers in tho sixties, i
must Btill abido with their sons on tho |
ushering in of tho twentieth century, if
thoy would achieve the highest, brightest
and best within their roach. Tho oppor
tunities afforded to-day aro different to
thoso of forty years ago, but thoso new
opportunities aro freighted with new
responsibilities. "Responsibility," said
Lord Lytton, "that IIKAVIKHT word in
all our language" "Duty," said Hebert
E. Leo, in still higher strain, "that
Noni.KST word in all our language."
Thc sons of those who followed tho
fortunes of war aro now lighting a peace
ful battlo in tho marts of trade and com
merce, in industrial pursuits, in tho
workshop and in tho Held. In this bat tle
it seems that tho God of nature is on our
sido. There can be no question that the
natural advantages 'of tho South are
superior to thoso of tho North. With
their full development will come a natu
ral supremacy. In tho manufacturo of
cotton tho Southern mills are fast wrest
ing the prestige from tho mills of New
England. This is only one of many in
stances in which wo are blessed in mate
rial things. Tho strides already made
by tho South since tho war are the won
der of tho ago. Let us provo true to tho
sacred traditions and memories of tho
past, in war and in peace, and learn from
our sires and grands!res tho lesson of
fidelity to duty, and genug forward ever
faithfully In tho discharge of that duty,
lot us transmit to thoso who shall come
nftnr ns our glorious inheritance without
Bpot or blomish or any such thing.

gation. For prudential reasons, at tho
request of tho government's agents, noth
ing has hoon said about tho matter in
print. Thoro was cortain ovidonco tho
government desired which would proba
bly not havo boon obtained aftor a pub
lic exposition. Judge Thomason, his
former law 'partner, C. P. Sims, and a
United States rovonuo oflicor by tho
name of Alex. Robinson, aro all in
volved. Tho mattor carno to a focus yes
terday whon Judgo lirawloy, in tho
United States couria at Greenville, or
dered a rule to ?J8UC against C. P. Sims
to show causo wb .' ho should not bo
debarred from practico in that court.
It is understood that all tinco parties
will be indicted in a common cliargo for
conspiracy to dofraud tho government,
lt seems that they would got up bogus
eases against imaginary peoplo,nnd most
damaging testimony would bo given, Sims
aoting as defendant's attorney and Rob
inson prosecuting. By somo moans tho
bogus accounts for fees, otc, wore sus
pected and an investigation followed.
Sims came boro from Union about 15
months ago and formed a partnership
with W. S. Thomason for the practico of
law. For a time tlioy seemed toprospor,
but it has boon known for 301110 timo
tji.tt Boniothing was wrong. Thomason
was at ono timo tho most Influential man
in this oounty, and bold tho oftlco of
Probato Judge for eight years. Ho is
well connoctcd, having married a sister
of Prof. N. P. Walker, of Cedar Springs.
Tlio government ofllcials say thoy havo a
strong caso and that before it is over tho
famous old Barrett conspiracy caso will
bo a small affair in comparison." Tho
accused havo issued a statomontin which
they claim that tho cliargo is an outcomo
of malice and that upon a hearing thoy
will vindicate thomsolvos fully.

Under the recent ruling of tho treasury
department all who volunteered for tho
Spanish-Amorionn war aro to bo paid
