We will vary from our customary

ly the spirit of .minority representa
tion and in our opinion is an admii'a
ble scheme, if it can be carried out.
Tlo'ew cfi Courier states that
this proportional representation is
the conditioin of its support of Gun

publicans fail to acquiesce in this
scheme it will adfocato the nomina

We sincerely trust, however that
this necessity will not arise. The

Charleston, but in every county in
MIr. Washington Schell and Mr.
Waltor Solel, the brother and
the nephew of Dr. Schell, have been
arrested on suspicion of the nmur
derer of Joe Crows. They protest
When Adam Crows and two no
groes were arrested for the murder
of Scholl, on an affidavit of the no
groes that they had perpetrated the
murder tLhiy were reloned
without the formality of a
trial. This doubtless caused the
people of liaurens to believe that
they might ats well expert nothing
from the law, and som misguided
indivich ,1 took the law into his
own hanIds. We do not point to the
friends of Dr. Schell by this. Joe
Crows had made many other enemies
oqually as bitter. But this Schell
matter was a test case. Had it been
tried in opOn court 1hoforo a jury of
twelvo mon, the verdict would have
ibo respoetod ; and as thore was
probably sufficient doubt; to have
cleaimed Crows, he would have been
living to-day just as Bowen is. But
wheon the eon fossimm of tihn neeimsocl
)ersos1 themselves were sot aside
upon a hearing of merely an applica
tion for h1abeas eonms, it might have
bees expected that other enwimies of
Crews would seek redress before
another tribunal. It is true the ne
groes made counter affidavita after
wamrdsi, but these were as improbable
asN an1 oriental fiction for they im
p1licaited amiong other poirties the
G reenvillo N~ues. as h avin g organized
a consFpiracy against Crews. This
wasH so absuirdly ridiculous tha~t it
stamp~ed the wvholo afidavit as false.
It will be0 found that the slowest way
of conducting affairs is the best. It
is more expensive to try anl accused
puarty before a jury, but the loss of
money is more t~han conimonsated
by a preservation of peacen and
In conclusion we suggest to the
Schiolls to Imke aflidavits that they
had nothing to do with this nuirder
and then to apply for a release on a
writ of habeas corpus.
Is it not strange that some n
lucky accident bofals every fiancial

placed the deposit in Solomnon's
hank. And when the bank fails lhe
pleads ignorance of its condition,
oxpuresses sorrow that ho was a
victim of misplaced contidcee, and

And thus far for somne reason lie has
csc'aped all blame. Now if the
assertions of the Treasurer be true,
Gov. Chamnbierlain is as culpable
as Comptroller D~unn. If an inves.

Our Plio '
State E;C-hathles are still debatin'g
the luostion of organizatioli in South
Carolina. 'l'lio issue has not, beerd
presented sufficiently yet to decide
the status of each member of the
conservative Proes. Itis highly pro
per at present to agtitato the ques
tion of organi zation, but. our policy
after organization must be deter
mined by events not yet existing.
The questions scorn to be:
1st. Shall there be an oi'g aniza
tion of the conservatives next year ?
2d. In cvent of organization;
what shall be the policy pinsued 7
In answer to the first jucstion we
answer unhesitatingly, Yes. Many
of the evils that have ;befallen the.
State are attributable to the. want
of organization on the part of the
conservative taxpayers.' The politi
cal outlook was so gloomy that after
every defeat the conservatives tre
lapsole into defiiair. They were not
to be blamed for this. The hational
radical party was Ho strong', Adecor'
rupt and so malignant- toward ' the
South: that.any effort made against
it was prodostinled to fail.
After vain efforts to- help them
Holves the Southern conservatives
seeing that Congress was all power
ful, appealed to it.. But assistance
thore was denied, and they once
more organized an effort among
themselves. That effort owing to
the "tidal wave" succeeded in every
State except South Carolinn, nd
h'erc even it- was productive of in
c dlcalable benefit. eNow the pros
pet is bright. The national radi
cal party, once so arrogant, is cring
ing like a wi)ippei cur before out
raged public sentiment. Congress
has lost its absolute power for evil.
The conservatives of South Carolina
c'm work out their own redemption
without fear of Federal interference.
We believe firmldy that the last at
tempt to flood a State with federal
soldiers hais heen mardo. Whatever
of good or ovil is in stoyro for our
Slite nmst be evolved by heyself.
Ini this phatse of polities, the policy
of the conservatives is -orgarnization
They nmst b)e able to wield their
fifty thousand votos in sali: phalanx
for. reform, and this can be effected
only lby concerted action.
A h'eady there exists a State or
ganization which needs but a slight
oll'ort, to organize the whole conser
vative party into one uqighty engine.
When the conservaitive nominating
convention called by the'tax uilon met
list year. it organized a party. Be
fore it aujourned, it elected a con
servative excutive colmnittee in
every Count', as will 1)e seen by
refcrencec to its minutes, for the ex
press puirpo'se of perpetuating it~s
organization. When the proper
time arrives it will only be necessary
for these committees to call precinct
meetings ill thieir rhpeti~vo coun
ties ; and a party wi1Jinstan ugooun-.
ly arise "like Minerva, all armed."
The only difficulty in the way will
b)e thme alpathy of the people. Bnt
if, last yens, wheni overyhiung was
gloomy the consfervatives organized
a powerful .party in four weeks,
there need 1)0 no fear that next
year, with a demnocratic congress
and twenty-five, democratic States
and an abandonment of bayonet
legislatiown and ballot box slufling,
the conservatives of South Carolina
will b)0 b)uried in apathy.
But while we* call for orgniztiedi
we do not soe why that organization
shiould be bourbon-democratic, or'
should nominiate a bourbon-demo
('ratie ticket. While thorn are fine
prospects of a victory for refo'rm
there are none f > r. a'denocht1io victo
ry in South Carolina. .Suecess
cannot be achlieved without the co
oper'ation of fifteen thoulsande col
ored votere, and while we bolieve
that number can be cas~ily obtpied
for a compromise, they will not vote
for a straight out domnoeratic. ticket.
-That is all.
. We beliove the policy to be, at,

Out' f a# his jumble wo libtice
that . fie treasuer igak e out an
aplparent pi'im.a facie ca se against
the bank of which Mr. Dunn is re
ceivor and champion. It would
appegr rom his showing that the
bank paid its stockholders up with
deposits and has drawn upon these
deposits to settle its profIt and loss
account'angl also to pay up about
$80,000 of liabilities: This would
'h fraud on the part of the bank.
What. chiefly perplexes Mr.. Cars
doza, and we may . add, the. public
generally, is what has become tof the
$200,000 deposited by. the State and
not draw' upon. , It must have been
applied to the- payment of other
claims. What these claims were
is the, point in doubt. Mr. Dunn
refuses'thus far to make a statement
of-the .transactions of the bank be
tween January and June. .
T1pasurer Cardoza . avers that at
a meeting of the financial board
some'weeks ago he offered a resolu
tion to investigate the - condition of
the batik and the cause - of its fail
He also avers that Mr.
Dunn introduced - a resolution
postponig till some future day,
even the mere consideration of the
question whether such investigation
should be made.
All. this plnaces Mr. Dunn and
the bank in an unfavorable light, and
the public. are anxiously awaiting
a development of their dofence. It
is needless for Mr. DTnn to reply
by rnerely accusing Cardoza of im
proper conduct. While the charges
against Cardbsa may be true, this
has nothing to do - with the inno
cenae or guilt of the bank officials
and the receiver. ,i. Mr. Dunn must
make a better showing than this.
