AN HONEST AND UNCORRUPTED MAN.
Hon. DanielH. Chamberlain
OF RICHLAND COUNTY.
NOW WE HAVE IT.
DON'T SUITORT HIM BECAUSE HE
WILL TAY YOUR DEBTS ? N
Why ire do not Support Cham
Because along with Moses and the
vest of (hat party lie is responsible for
the debased and demoralized condition
of (he State? No.
Because he was ono of the Land
Commission; and took so little care of
tho iutcrcsts of the State, and so much
for himself, that tho State lout hundreds
of thousands of dollars, and he became
suddenly rich ? No.
Because ho was a member of the
Financial Board of tho State which*
inflicted upon the Stato an increase of
six millions of indebtedness in a fraudu
lent manner, and do ono has yet ap
peared who rcccivod any bou*Gt from it
except those iu whose hands it was last
traced ? No.
Because ho brought Kimpton from
outer darkness and mado him tho owner
of much of what was formerly the
wealth of Carolina, through his appoint
ment as Financial Agent of the State ?
Because he hai persistently aided
every scheme of oppressiou, and opposed
every real attomptat relief in tho Stato ?
But it is because Mr. Chamberlain is
at'present the lawyer and representa
tive of tho fraudulent indebtedness of
the Statc;fnnd because the devotion
which he has exhibited towards it in
tho past and tho vast amount of interest
which he possesses in its recovery, any
attempt to make him the Governor of the
State would be only a step in the law
suit which he has in charge.
If tho pcoplo of this State intend to
pay this debt, them let then support
Chamberlain. If thoy do not intond to
do so, then let them say so in unmista
kable terms. Tho suit is brought
against them; thoy now have the power
to control it. Elect Chamberlain, and
that power is gono from them and their
beirs forever.? Charleston Sun.

Interview with the^Solicitor oe
the First Judicial Circuit.
Solicitor BuMz arrived in Oraage
burg on Monday of this week, and took
rooms at Mcronoy's hotel. He remain
ed until Wodnesdny, and was oalled
upon during tho time by hosts of his
friends. Owing to tho eminont service
he has rendered for the last two years in
the interest of reform and good govern
ment, and the earnestnosi and ability
displayed in the prosecution of the
'?Robber" Governor, in our last Circuit
Court, Major Buttzbas almost become
an authority with tho pcoplo horo. On
Tuesday last, therefore, we sent our
Reporter to interview him, and obtain
his views. Major lluttz was in a good
and happy mood, but recognizing the
power of the press, said to deponent, "be
Reporter?I obscrvo that your opin
ion in regard to tho political and fin an
cia? condition of Charleston County
Mm published a few days ago in the
Sun. ?ff OrangobuTg belongs to your
Circuit), I hovo called to got your views
of affairs here.
Solicitor Buitz~I have no objection to
stating thorn. I am willing to ; do any
thing for the benefit of the Republican
party, aud to benefit the citizens of tho
State. Tho financial condition of your
County is very bad. Previous to the
last tax gathering, through mismauago
incut of County officials, a largo debt
had accumulated, and tho Legislature
had, therefore, to levy an extra tax of
threo mills to pay off said debt. But
the Governor induced the County
Treasurer to spend a part of tho money
raised by tho taxes for his use, tho
Treasurer then taking a part of it him
self, there was not much left with
which to pay new or old olaims. Your
County is also without suitable public
buildings. You havo miserablo little
?heds here for public porposos. Pro
visions have been mado for tho oroction
of public buildings, but because of tho
stealing that has been going on by
public officers, an additional tax will
have to bo levied now boforo you can
havo things as they ought to bo. This
is hard on the people, and thoy should
hold tho men to a sovaro accountability
who have caused this burden to fall upon
them. It has been charged that cor
ruption has been going on hero for six
years. 1 have caused the Grand Jury
to appoint a committee of three of their
number to investigate your affairs. The
people must know the manner in which
so much of their money has beon expeud
ed. It will not be practicable for me
to bring civil suits against the bonds of
any officials, or give out bills of indict
mcnt, until after the Grand Jury shall
have mado their investigation, and
reported it to the Court.
Reporter?Does the action of Judge
Graham in quashing tho iadictmout
agaiust Moses necessarily stop the case
against him for larceny?
Solicitor Jhittz?Certainly not! It
ouly delays the trial uutil a new indict
ment is given to tho grand jury for the
same offence. If Moses had stood his
trial, and been acquitted or convicted,
he could not have been tried again for
the same crime. Of course 1 entirely
disagree with the conclusions arrived at
by Judge Graham, in quashing the in
dictment, but have not as yet taken the
necessary stcpB towards affecting an
appeal iu the mutter, becau*o of tho
peculiar organization of the Supremo
Court iu relation to the case?the Chief
Justice being the father of the Govern
or. Under ouk Constitution- tlie Cief
Justice caunot preside over a case where
his son is upon trial.
The law provides that in case of
the disability of any member of the
Supreme Court, the Governor shall
designate some one to take his place.
Thero are additional reasons which
have had weight with me. I did not
want to trust au appeal before the
Supreme Court. I do not think that*"
a quostion of so grave import mce shou Id
be submitted to the highest tribunal in
the State, when the surroundings might
jeopardize a oorrout exposition of the
law. Tho next torm of our Court will
act in October. This, you will observe,
comes off before the election, which
takes placo iu Noveinbor ; therefore it
will bo impracticable for me to giro out
a new indict mcnt before the January
term. By that time tho new Governor
will have becu inaugurated and Judgo
Graham's decision will uo longer apply
to his Excellency.
Reporter?Do you intend to take an
active part iu tho campaign for Gover
Solicitor Buttz?It is the duty of
every citizen to use his best endoavors
towards olecting honest aud othorwiso
capable men to office. Public men
should bo qualified for the performance
of thoir duty. I havo not mado up ray
mind, however, as to who would bo tho
safest man to trust. There is a good
deal said against each man's namo that
has been mcutioncd.
Reporter?Havo tho charges against
our school Commissioner beon brought
to your notico ?
Solicitor Jiultz?Yes, but I am not
satisfied as to their sufficoinoy, and can
not order an investigation just now.
Reporter?What will be tho rosult of
tho organizations throughout tho State
called Tax Uuions ?
Solicitor liuttz?Tho objcot of thoir
organization depends upon a contingency.
If Moses should bo ro-olected Gov
ernor they will refuse to pay taxes, on
the ground that ho and his subordinates j
hayo misappropriated or divertod >
tho money so oolleotod from
people, from its logitimato purpose*
collision will occur botween tho tax,'
collector and the tax payers?oonfusior. ,
and nnarohy will provai', the President j
of the Unitod States will be called upon
by both sides to interfere in their boy
half, and the President, in my opinion',
will direct the army to support tho tax
payers, or at loast, prohibit thorn from \
upholding a oorrupt government. Tho
only immediate prospect of obtaining j
control of tho State by tho Democracy,
will be through the ro eltction of
Moses by tho Republican party. This
they know, and thoreforo their kindly
feelings towards him. In comparison
to all other RepublicauB President
Grant and the Republican party North
will givo a reasonable support .to any
Republican nominated for Govornor ex-*J

Major Buttz looks well, and has that
same determined spirit which made
Mosas tremble in bis sandals last May.
Flo is on the right track yet, and tho
peoplo intend to stand by him in his
efforts to do good.
Young men, you art the architects of]
your own fortunes. Rely on your own
strength of body and soul. Take for
your guiding star self relia nee. Sub
scribe ou your banner, "Duck is a fool ;
Pluck is a honor." Don't take too
much advice; keep at your helm and
steer your own ship, and remember
that the great art of commanding is to
take a fair share of the work. Think
well of yourself; striko outjassnane
your own position. Pat potatoes ?in a
cart, over a rough road, and the small
ones go to the bottom. Rise above the
envious aad jealous; far above the
mark you intern! to hit. Energy,
invincible detcrminination, with a
right motive, are the levers that move
the world. Don't drink ; don't chew ;
don't smoke; don't swear; don't
deceive ; bo in earnest; be self roliant ;
be genorous ; be sivil; road tho papers ;
advertiso your business; make money
and do good with it; love your Go 1
aud fellow men ; love truth and virtue
your country aud obey its laws. Cut
this out and paste it inside tho crown of
your hat, and always recollect for sound;
advice we must look above.
We are pleased to acknowledgo the
receipt of a complimentary ticket from
