This interpretation reveals the

over yet known. It stamps either
the framers of the constitution as
fools, or the legislators as knaves.
Greenville County has io treasurer
because it has too many. Latimer
and Runion both claim the place
and the matter is in the Courts. In
two indictments brought against
Runion for misconduct as auditor,
Judge Cooko ordered the jury to
find a verdict of not guilty. We
are having too much of this ordering
of juries by judges. Judge Cooke
also charged the Grand Jury of
Greenville to find a true bill against
the plucky Greenville News for
libel of Runion. The Grand Jury
refused to find a bill, and Judge
Cooke then ordered then to hold
over, day after day until they do
find a bill. The Nows, that nothing
daunted, defies the Judge. Oui
sympathies are with the Greenville
News in thit matter, as they were
when Jugdo Cooke ruled the editor
for contempt. The attempt to gag
a paper is an outrage upon free
speech, and should be prom.ptly rc
-ented by the )eoplo,, in whose be
half the press does battle.

triots. The House is republican by
11 majority and this will give a re
publican governor. The democrat
elect a majority of the Council ol
the governor, and two out of three
Congressmen, a gain of one. As
Congress decides the national policy,
this is a gain for the anti-adminis
trationists. The democruts polled
2,000 more votes than ever before.

making this apportionment, is acting
acceordinag to law, and is to blame
only for not protesting loudly against
