Ath its usual fnroo and vigar, Colobat
'osition, andt takes the position that the
I of the Internal Revenue laws would
isarially incre.4se the duties on inporl
ticles. This is ia falre premise. If the
itivornmeit wts stripped of the tax on
co and whiskey she would then be
.ident on t/oreign importalions and would
to fix such a tariff as would bring in
n goods to pay the tat iff. This would
tl such an adjust ment of the .tariff as

From'the.Greenville News of 6th inst.
United States Comm issioner Barret, of
Plokens pulisbee a curd directly denying 1
that he has been guilty of offilial misson t
duct. This nation nay be satisfactory to
him, but it will not do him any good with
the publio. No man's character is good I
enough to make his simple denial of grave
charges evidence of his innooeee strong 4
enough to satisfy impartial people.
Charges against Commissioner Barrett
have been whispered and spoken alou. for
months It he has not heard of thens he
is one of very few men in the towns ot
Pickens and Greenville. Now that those
charges have been expressed in print, we
can see only one way for him to act to sa
tisfy the public mind and clear his own
oflcial and personal reputation- That way ,
is to demand an official investigation of his
proceedings and let all the facts come out.
rhero has been crooked work and guilt
somewhere, and the people ought to know
the guilty men and have the satisfautiou of
seeing them punished.
It is fair to any that the charges against u
Cominissioner Barrot'. have not been sup- I
ported, so far as we know, b sworn evi. I
dence or detailed statements of acts and
figures. They have been geniiral ad naked a
of proof 's his denial. But they are grave
enough and wide-spread enough to require
a natn who is cnreful of his reputation to I
meet them and crush them with evidence ii
The people of Pickens have n right to de- tl
mand that all t he facts of the conduct of tle
lItevento Department in theie county he
brought out. They hiavu been harried and
hunted and despoiled, andi are entitled to
look to the government undcr whose name b
and nthon iy the wrongs have been con.
misted to avenge them. Let us see what
will be done.
It Commissioner Barrett does not know
what the charges against himn are, we can .
aid will enligh,ten hitim o his demand.
