'The Pennsylvania Republicans
11ayo renominated lIartranft for
Governor. They denounced the
third topf da, 'but endeavored to
put a S6ar coating to this 'bitter
pill by eulogizing Grant's adminis
tration. The examplo of Pennsyl
vania wJll be followed probably by
all the States except South Carolina.
Honest John Paterson nado the'
last nominating State Convention
propose a third term for Grant, and
this proeipitato notion alarmed the
people of the Union and blooked
the President's little gamg. Poor
Grand preparations are making
for the Philadelphia Centennial. It
is confidonbly expected that this
great event will'bring all -kindreds
and peoples together. More espeoci

The orators of the oconsion will be

A few thouihts on Reform.
Parker's ease, it is said will be
heard at an extra term in July,
This is a civil action and will proba
bly result in nothing. Why does
the Attorney-Genoral not institute
criminal proceedings against Parker ?
It is claimed by the ememies of
Governor Chambprlain that he is
delaying the course of justice because
he fears implication in these frauds.
We do not believe this. But, as
supporters of the administration, we
would suggest to Governor Cham
berlain that it would be better for
him to avoid even au-pioion of evil,
by exerting his influence to scouro a
speedy prosecution of the leading
members of the ring. Should he
even apparently acquiesce iu these
law's delay, be will be furnishing
ammlunition for his enemies. Ro.
form in South Varolina will be a
sham, an empty bubble, so long as
the men who ruined 'the State are
suffered to walk unmolested our
public thoroughfares. We have
only this to say, ither commonco
In 'earnost on Parker, Moses, Leslie,
Whipper afid the other prominent
criminals, or else, for Heaven's sake,
stop sending poor unfrieLded devils
to the Penitentiary. The v-ry coun
ty commissioners who are inarcerat
ed, committed 'their petty fraudr,
while noted officials were stealing
millions. They only reproduced in
a feeble way the critLes of their
masters. This foobleness wis their
ruin. They have no influence, no
money, no friends. They arc fit sub
jeots to be immolated upon the altar
of reform. But reform spurns them.
They are unworthy victims, and it
is an insult to offer them. Outtaged
justice demands greater sacrifices
thsn these, and she must have them.
:In the name of reform, in the name
of'justice, in the name of an -outraged
people, we say to tho'judicial powver
in South Carolina, "Toc not a hair
of the head of a single county com
missioner, or school trubtee, until
you have brought down the whole
weight of the law upon the notorious
thieves who inaugurated a whluooale
system of robbery and continued
it until the State was made bank.
At the recent tormiof the Orange
burg Court, the State was apparently
very active in bringing offenders to
jostice. The news was heralded,
with flourish of trumpets, that Hum
bert and MocKinlay were to be ' dealt
with severely on the charge of forge
ry. Hlumbert was brought from the
Penitentiary, where he is now in
carcerated on the charge of embez
zlement of public funds, so that he
might be still further punished for
the crime of forging school eertiti
cates. This smacked of ' reform.
And so earnest and so enthusiastic
seemed to be the Judge and the So.
licitor in the prosecution of the good
work of bringing thieves to justice,
that we confidently expected to hear
by each mail that the arch thief
of the party himself, Franklin J.
Moses,,jr., had also boon put upon
trial upon the indlictmnent thuat for
a year:has been found against him.
But we were much disappointed
wshen no such refreshing intelligence
reached us. We could not under.
stand it. We do not yet comnpro
hend how-outraged.justice, personi.
fled 'in the honorable Court of
Orangoburg, could lose sight of this
admirable opportunity of taking its
revenge. -It may'be possible that in
its eagerness to pursue the nmiscre
ants who defrauded the Rchools of
the enormous sum of several hundred
dollars perhaps, It had no time to
dIvert its thought, to Moses, the om
bezzlor of paltry -hundrodn 'of
thousands.' For the -radical party
has ever been peculiarly -considerate
for the welfare of the public schools.
Free education is its hobbf, and
every di'ort has been made to estab
lish it firmly. Th'e school fun,d a.
been rigidly disbursed. Teachers
ire handsomely paid, cash in ad
vance, and there are no outstanding
school claims in the hands of hungry
pedag9guee to mook the system.
If radicalism las been a decided
success in any thing, that thing is
the school system. It is therefore
peculiarly apDropriate that Humburt
should suffer for his crime. But it
is well to sweep cleai. The COurt
might hale devoted some little at
tention to Moses. This is due to
Moses. Ile has for years lived on
notoriety, aud it must be extremely
mortifying to one of his tempera
ment to be thus remanded to obbOu.,
rity, "unwepi, ubhonored and un
seung." Let justice step aside
awhile from his impetuous pursuit
of evil doers to attend to Frank's
little case. It would be a pleasing
diversion to the public to be I
down from the tertifio excitoment
up to which they have been wrought
by these harrowing tales rf incarce
rated county commissioners and
school trustees and constables and to
witess the farce of the trial of an ex
Governor who prostituted his office to
the basest uses and exerted all his
influence in behalf of immorality, cor.
ruptlon and degrading vice.
We have no intention of dictating
to the Honorable Court; but even
the lowest and most humble citizen
can offer a suggestion. It may be
that the insignificant charge prefer.
red againsb Moses has escaped the
memory of the Court. We will
herofore briefly repeat it.
At the time when Gov. Moses was
becoming the butt of every decant
newspaper, North and South, he
found it expedient to purchase an
organ that would be his qpologist.
He therefore bargained with Senator
Thad Andrews for an interest in the
Union-Herald. -It is charged that
the price was a draft on Ilumbort,
the County Treasurer of Orangeburg,
for six thousind dollars out of the
the cotitingent fund. The draft was
given. Cardoza, it is said, endorsed
on the draft that he would accept it
in settlement ai so much cash.
Thereupon Munibort cahotd the
draft. Whon be came to a settle
Iment, CardokL roruscd to receive the
draft, and on the lailure of lumbert
to produce the money, caused lim
and Moses to be indiote'd fr .irano
larceny. An atteipt w.s made to
arrest Moses, but ho daied the au
thority of the Court. The -case was
continued. At the next term, Atto.

prosecution with his accustomed

could tes.LVy against Moses. H ero
by the way, was another instance of
the impetuously of .justice which:
forgot all other ..bljects of pursuit iid
its eagerness to imprison that vile,
dangerous boy, IIumbort. Andi, so
vindictive has justice been *of inte
in pursuing notorious criminals that
Moses has nev-er been molested. iIe

an injured innocent. And this is
justice. We have only to say that
