Pay of Legislator'
We are informed that Rev. G. W.
Singleton, School Commissioner of
this County, said in his speech at Das
cusville on last Saturday, that thq
Legislatare had reduced the phy of
School Commissioners, but their re
form and economy gave out when
.they reached their own pay. We are
eatisfied that Mr. Singleton would not
do the Legislature an intentional in%
justice; but in this particular ho is cer
tainly at fault, as the record will
prove. We know that a great many
people are of the op)inion that the mem
bors of the Legislaturo rocoivo the
same compensation now as they did
during the Radical regime, and to
correct this erroneous opinion, we will
here state that for the two years we
have served in that Wbdy under
"Hampton and homo rulo" we have
received about eight hundred dollars
loss than we would havo received, un
der sinvlar circumstances, under Rad
It is well known that at the regular
sossion of 1876-77, during the exis.
tonco of the dual governments, no leg,
islation could b2 ,fWaotEd on account
of the Radical majority'in the Senate,
* who aisumed a revolutionary attitude
towards the legally elected govern
ment by the people. The Wallace
House, by the assistance of the Dem
o -ratic members of the Senate, (lid,
however, inaugurate Governor Hamp
ton, and elect Gen. Butler to 'the
United States Senate. Thils action
subsequently proved to be legal, for
had it not we would not togday have
Hampton for' our Governor and But
ler for our United States Senator.
This, then, was a regular session, and
under the law as it then stood, which
could 'not be changed so as to affect
the pay of the members of that Legis,
lature, (the Constitution prohibits any
Legisilature from fixing its own py
it must be done by a preceding Leg,
islature,) the members were optitled
to $600 each. For the extra session
of 1877 they were also entitled to $600,
but for both sessions they received
only $600, or one half less than the
law really allowed 'thorn. At the re,
gular session.*of 187 7-78 the pay was
fixed at five dollars per~ diem-this
gave the members for' that session
something over four hundred dollars
making in all for the two years
about one thousand dollars.
Had the Radicals .been n power, they
would bavo re,ceivod for the same
number of sessions, $1,800 dollars.
This gives about $800 in favor of the
3Democratio Legislature. And it
should be remembered that the Logis,
laiture at its last session did, perhaps,
me-e 'work than any other Legislature
over convened in South Carolinai. The
investigation of the public debt, and
the frauds committed by the Radicals
*Was an herculean task, besides there
wvere t great number of bills passed,
remodeling and repealing the Radical
laws and enacting such now laws as
the necessities of the people required.
All this was necessary, and we take
it for granted that the people of South
-Carolina, who properly appreciate
the work done by the Legislature,
will not grumble at the afniount of
pay its members received. We do
not makd this statement in support of
the pay received by the meinbers of
the Legislature, for be It remcmbered
that' the delegation from Pickens
voted for three dollars a day, but
simply to correct the erroneous im
pression amongst some of our people.
Pablic speakers when they c riticise
the aotions of the Legislaturo should

Congress has passed a bill repeal
ing the bankrupt law. It, will go into
effect September 1,1879, and all caees
then pending will be continued as if
the bankrupt act had not been pass..
od. This we consider, one of the most
important measures acted on by Con.
gross. The bankrupt law was terri
bly abused, and while in many in
stances it gave gteat relief and was
proper enough, in many others debt.
ors only took advantage of it to de-.
fraud their creditors. We are glad
the law is repealed.
The following is the text of the bill
to forbid the further retirement of
United States legal tender notes':.
Be it enacted, &c., That from and
after the passage of this act it shall
not be lawful for the secretary of the
treasury, or other officers under him
to cancel or retire any more of the
United States legal tender notes; and
when any of said notes may be re,.
deemed or received into' the treasury
from any law under any source wvhat
ever, and shall belong to the Unit?d
States, they Ahall not be retired, can
colled or destroyed, but shall be recis
sued and paid out again and kept in
circulation; provided that nothing
herein shall prolhibit the cancellation
and destruction of mutilted notes,
and the issue of other notes of like de
nomination In their stead, as now pro,.
vided by law. All acts and parts of
acts in conflict herewith are hereby

faeta prove that it is steering vert
wide of the mark and that it is in per

essayed to grapple. There aro no
"divisions" in this State of the kind
and character the Springfield paper
would have its readers believe-Wade
Hatapton and his.people are one, one
in aim and sympathy and b'ound sol.
idly together on the platform adopted
by the State convention of 1876. That
platform pledged full and equal pro
tection to all the people of the State
in all their rights of person and prop
erty and nothing more. It contained
no "4goographieal lines," it made no
pledges for "the full payment of the
State debt-," it waF, broad enough for
all men to stand upon of whatever
race, creed or condition, it embodi6d
the true political sentiments of our
people and upou it Hampton and the
party have made a firm and success
ful fight. There are differences in
matters of opinion simply but they
do not amount to anything like a
"division," as the solid Democratic
vote next fall will -prove. The last
election was engineered and won by
the up country and under the most
trying conditions of this revolutionary
period the Governor's strongest sup
porters and firmist allies came from
the up country. In the State Con
vention of 1876 the policy of the
party was shaped by up countrymen
who, with a courage and wisdom far
above the selfish views of their timid
low country brethren, determinel to,
make a square and honest fight with.
out conucession or compromise. That
fight was won and the histoty of the
State since the day the old Wallace
[House first met in Carolina Hall is
familiar to every one who has kept

those composing the legislativo de,

of improvement is everyw here visible
and we are moving onward to a glo

that all the manufactories estilblished
in the State since the war, with the

WALVALLA, S. '0., May. 25, 1878. 1
On iay 14th, about noon, a reve
ne force consisting of six mer. cam*e
to my house to arrest me. "I came to
Lhe door when they reached the front
f the house"and was told by Captain
Hoffinan to consider myself under ar,.
rest. I asked where they intended to
take me and was told Walhalla. *I
told them I would go to Pickens, but
I did not want to go to Walhalla.
When told that it I did not go freely
I would be taken 1 asked leave to
change my clothes, which was "rant
ed me. I was told by Captain Hoff
man to wrap myself w6ll and get b6
hind Gary on the horse he was riding.
I told him I did not want to belittle
myself to - be caught riding behind
Gary; that I had thought a good deal
of Gary before he went on the revenue
force, but I was done with him now. I
was then told by Captain Hoffman if
1 did not get behind Gary *he would
handcuff me, as he was tired of this
fooling. I then mounted behind Gary
and was taken to Mrs. Barton's house,
where I received meals and slept with
the revenue men on the floor until
next morning. I was then taken to
\Valballa, being mounted behind the
entire way, except when some of them
dismounted and allow'd me to ride on
the saddle. I had been sick with,tbe
milkbick, but was up and about when
arrested, and I was carried only eight
miles that evening because of the rain.
I was not abused, but being weak the
trip was hard on me, though I
could ride very well on the saddle,
and the party frequently' walked and
allowed me to ride. I have heard the
article from the PICKENs SENTINEL
rend several times and have always
denied its truth, and 'never did give
such information to any man.

Attost: J.S. Verner.
We publish the above c:ed from the
Keoowooe Courier. The statement
published by us was received from a
gentleman entirely worthy of confi
donce, and after writing.the attic we
submitted it to him bcf re publication,
and ho said it was substan tially as 1b0
had rceived it from anothier party

as we said at the time, as it, came to
us, nnd at that time had no reas5on to

Walker hats denied receiving any
abuse fromn the parties arresting him
and the truth of the article publisihed
by us, we p)ublish this card to cor. cut
any injustice we may have done the
paIrties~ in that,t particular. Mr. Walk -

had received any abuse 01' not, and

bachelor friend Waddy, if there was
an ordained minister in town. Ro,
civing an answer in the negative,
they the n enquired if there was a a..

flashed upon Waddy, and, they were
referred to Trial Justice Tay lor', with
the information that he could accom

On Saturday, June the let, at an
early tour people were seen coming
in from all directions, and by 10
o'clodk, a. M., a largo crowd had as
sembled.in the beautiful grove near
the new Mothodiet church, about one
fourth of a mile south of- Mr. B. F.
Mergan's store. At 10 o'clock the
procession formed at the church, con
sisting of all of Sunday and day schogl
scholars present. The long proces
sion was headed by Rev.. T. Looper.
Just behind and far above the head
ot whom could be seen the beautiful
banner, prepared for the occasion by
the fair hnndo of Miss Rinda R.,,and
borne by Jessie Anderson, on.the ban
ner and around a large blue star was
the words "IN GOD WE TRUST" in
delicate blue letters. The procession
marched in fine order to the stand, in
a pleasant and shady place of the
grove. When all thaL could got seats
were seated (for there were not Feati
enough for all) prayer was oftered by
Rev. Thos. Looper. Then lev. G
W. Singleton Was introduced,
who entertained us for 50 minutes
with one of the best and most thor
ough speechos, on the subject of edu
cation, that it has ever been our good
fortune to listen to. It was delivered
in his most happy style, and we wish
every man in our county could have
heard it-would give it here in full
but space Forbids. Then the Rev. A.
Walker was introduced, who address
ed the children on the "w-a-t-e%h,
whlich was listened to with great
eagerness by both old and young. To
have any correot idea of his '-talk"
one should have heard it. Tlhe speak
eras we're introduced by Mr. B. F.
Morgan, who (lhen announced that
dinner was ready, that "all are in,
vited." Agaiin the line of march was
taken up across the road dnd on to) a
thick grove, almost in front of l)h-. J.
T. Anderson's residence, w here a
table was e.ncounterej100) feet long.
Th~lis long table was covered wVitih all
maunner~ of goo~d thingsr to .eat, ham,
turkey, pc.rk, chicken, beef, pies,
cakes, and other things too numeCrous
to mention, p)repared and dono up in
that style and taste for which tif thir
ones of Daeusvillo are renow ned.
These eatables were ajurounded in
such a quiet and dlignifie'd manner.
The "blessing" being asked by Rev.
Walker, eating begun and countinued
until all had a complete satisfation in
the inner man. A large number of
colored people were'brought up, and
still those irrepressible "good things"
would not be demnobshed. Alt were
compelled to retire and leave that
long table groaning under its loa.

we were entsertained by Prof. D). C.
