given notice that lie will appeal from
.Judge lionet's decision (plashing tho
indictments against Col. Neal, late
Superintendent of tho Benitentiary,
for failure to turn over public fa.ids.
The point was raised that Col.
Neal had no right to receive thc
money paid him for convict hire,
but that it shotld have been paid to
the board of directors. Thc point
was sustained and from the decision
an appeal will be taken. Thc chief
reason for the appeal is to settle
whether Col. Neal had thc right lo
collect or receive contract money, as
thc point is material in tho Caro .na
National bank litigation.

of the active work of the candidates
for oftico, and tho politicians will at
an early day declare themselves on
the issues of the campaign. There
is but very little doubt but that tho
liquor question willi the dispensary
?(?ll bo the chief State issue, lt will
be the old light of IK9H over again
with this difference (unless I have
been mistaken in tho impressions
that have been made upon me in vis
iting tho different sections of the
State): Tho lines will bo Closely
drawn and thc candidates will have
I to take their choice between the
homo and the dispensary. This is
i the fight and the interests of the
two are as different, as the day is
diff iront from the night. The Chris?
lian home is the hopo and stay of the
Slate ; it is hallowed by o very sa
cred tie and is tho brightest and
happiest spot on earth. The dis
pensary is tho greatest enemy of the
home, the most dangerous place in
every community, und is working
daily and hourly to rob thc home of
all its attractions, lt snatches from
its inlluenCC tho most promising of
its sons and takes to a drunkard's
homo (home in nanni only) tho fair
est and lovliest of its daughters, and
this, too, with tho authority and
sanction of the State, because, the
politicians who now cont rut t he Dem

Whore do you stand in 1900, for the
home or for tho dispensary? Are
you a dofendor of tho homo or arc
you its enemy ? I believo you will
have the manhood to shake off the
shackles of tho dispensary ring and
thc whiskey trust and stand up for
tho good name of your home and
The candidate is to be pitied who

tends to claim that ho believes "tho
dispensary law thc best solution of
tho whiskey question" because be
thinks bo can secure oflloo through

himself, Iiis home, and playing the
hypocrite in order to do it. Tho
prohibitionists inny or may not have
candidates for all the ollie.es to be
voted for, but, if the Christian men
and women will ?lo their duty from
this day forward, wo will win a
great victory this year. Drw thc
lines closely Mid let every candidate
understand that he must take ono
side or the other, and that no prohi
bition candidate will vote for a man
who takes thc side of the dispensary.

Birds Will Fly.
Wc do not believe that a majority
of the people in South Carolina are
in favor of tho enormous yearly ap
propriations to tho live State col
leges. These appropriations are so
out of proportion to thc common
school fund, so far beyond thc de
mands of any existing necessity, so
at variance with every principle of
justice and expediency, that thought
ful fnirminded, impartial people can
not endorse them.
W'1 know men worth $90,000 in
clear clean cash whose sons and
daughters are being educated as
beneficiaries in our State colleges
Wc infer that there are hundreds of
such whom wc do not know. In
fact we hardly believo that any tui
tion is collected at all in Clemson or
Winthrop. Yet these pupils cost
thc State over $200 apiece every
year, and a large part of tho money
is raised by a tax on fertilizers which
no body but farmers use. Therefore
alargo part of thc money spent on
rieh mon's sons and daughters comes
directly from tho fanners. It seems
to us that anybody can sec this and
understand it. And yet farmers
continue to send men to the legisla
ture who vote for these appropria
Wc have been told on good au
thority that there was hardly a day
during the last session of our legis
lature that some oflicor of some one
of the State colleges was not in Co
lumbia lobbying in tho money inter
est of his college. Such :.cal and
pertinacity as these presidents and
professors exhibited, to thc great
disgust ol' some of our honest, high
minded legislators, perhaps ought to
pass for unselfish devotion to the
cause of education ; but for tho life
of us wc can't help from remotely
and dimly associating with the zeal
of tlu'se mon, tho fat salaries and tho
indefinite number of perquisites be
longing to thc positions which they
hold intho State colleges and depend
ing largely for their continuance on
Slate legislation. Those dim associa
lions that risc out of our innate de
prnvity and group themselves in misty
outlines in om darkened vision may do

days arc left.
Thc director of the twelfth census
is William 1\ Merriam, former gov

persons suffering from any chronic
disease will not bo required to dis

To tho Editor of tho State: lu
your valuable paper of tho 3d in
stant I have just read with deep inter
eat tho graphic description of tho bat
tic of Gaines' mill, Juno 27th, 1862,
where "the gallant baud of 14" Buf
fered HO mich.
The ladies have done well to pince
their names on il marblo tablet, but,
sir, thc pure, the true, tho noble, tho
chivalrous, the brave Taylor and bia
13 associates will never bc forgotten,
I wish to relate an incident which
occurred tho next day at tho battle
of Frazier's Farm. It was nearly
dark. The battle was raging fear
fully. There wero three lines of
battle, shot and shell, carnage and
death, moans and groans filled tho
air. At this juncture a wounded
general of a Mississippi brigade
leaning heavily upon thc arm of an
aid passed us, exclaiming with tremb
ling voice and fervent emotion,
"Where is Maxy Gregg? Oh!
Where is Gregg? I want tho South
Carolinians to save us. Our whole
linc is retreating."
Al this critical moment Gen. Mc
Gowan, wdio was in the front lino
of battle, having been struck by a
spent ball from the enemy, shouted
in a clear, determined voice, dis
tinctly heard above the din of bat
"Boys, give them cold steel ! Pre
pare to charge !" In an instant bay
onets were fixed and the first lino of
battle immediately around Gen. Mc
Gowan yelled <?s only rebels could
yell. Tho second line of battle took
up the cry. The third, and on and
on. Thc yankees threw down their
guns and retreated in tho groatcst
confusion, bolly pursued by the
"Kohols," and the victory was ours.

Cotton Mill Development
The following from the London
Financial Times should bo ofjintorost
to those of our people in this State
who arc interested in cotton millB :
"Some weeks ago one of our
American correspondents drew at
tention to thc very remarkable pro
gress made recently by the cotton
manufacturing interests in the South
ern States. Thc movement is signifi
cant, not merely in relation to the
general questions of industrial ad
vance on tho other side cf tho At
lantic, but also because is r. '.ses tho
question of competition with English
and other centers, which hitherto
have completely held thc field and
have paid little heed to the indica
tions pointing to the weakening of
their absolute supremacy. Tho
movement has, of course, boon of
somewhat slow growth, but in recent
times there havo been evidences of
very considerable vitality stimulated
largely by the natural advantages
that exist, not only in the matter of
BU]?|dies of raw material and climatic
conditions, but also in tho ease in
which a plentiful supply of labor can
be obtained and in the exceptional
facilities for obtaining the requisite
materials, with tho solitary excep
tion of machinery; in such circum
stances it would bc strange, indeed,
if the Southern States had not gone
ahead, as Providence has provided
them with a bounty devoid of any
suggestion of artificiality. Practi
cally all the mills, we are told, havo
been running full time-many of
them by night as well as by day
and as tho tendency has beon to
build largor works, thus curtailing
unnecessary expense, it is quito clear
thal there has been no scarcity of
capital. The bosh evidence that can
I bo desired on this point lies in tho
fact that tho increase in the average
consumption per spindle in tho past
twelve months, as recorded in tho
consular reports before us, has boon
close upon six pounds. The North
inn spinners of course, still holds tho
lead in America, but of lato, at all
events, tltay have, beeil losing ground,
while their brothers in tho South
have been making headway."
