'The Lancaster L4gor mention
'that the regular republicans in Cu
lumbia have mad out a partial slat<
of candidates they intend putting i
the field in the next campaign. hero
it is : For governor, ). H. Cham -
borlain, republican ; for lieutonant
'governor, J. B. Kershaw, ,domocrat
for abtornoy-goneral, R. B. Elliott
)publican ; for stato troasuror, le.
A. Tretsholm, democrat.
The president has appointed
Judge Taft:, of Cinnoinnati, to sue
coed Blkftap as secretary of war.
Who and what Mr. 'l'aft is, nobody
soems to know, and everybody is
anxious to ascortain. President
Grant certainly has a knack of -sur
prising people when he makes in
important appointmeht. Wo hope
Mr. Taift will turn out all rig lit.

3y teforence to a table of secloo
ttut a published elsewhere, it wil
be eeen that Fairfield county i
adjudged entitled to $3,342.05. The
taxable property in the county I.
stated in the auditor's estimato foi
the last fiscal year to be $4,276,034;
and a levy of two Mills---the regulai
state tax for public schools-would
produce $8,552.06. It will ho secn.
thorofore, that by the unronusonabl(
and unjust method of apportion
ment now pursued, the county re
ceives much loss than half of the
sum paid by the people for the sup.
port of the schools. The best plan
would be to keep the levy foi
schools in the county, just as th<
touity tax of tlhree mtills is rNtaineul.
This would e'ncourhgo the lpeophe to
establ.ish and( n:intfai sc whoolh ill
every neighborhood, and make t hem
utclh reabor to hear their share of
the burden of taxation.
Tho totanl sum1 to be realized for
schools in .airiiold (not deducting
dolinquent ta ct) is $7,718.22. Thc

of opinion u11 ipon this subject is true,
and such diversity is not only
natural but necOssary. Ono groat
point to be gainol by thorough or
ganization is a full opportunity for t
an int el ehlango of opinions. The
