A Trae. History.'
This is the history of the. Greenville Rail?
road Ring, and of the swindling scheme
koown as the Greenville Railroad Bill.
Some time last year a party of State
officials dabbed together and bought up
enough or the stock of the Greenville and
Columbia Railroad Company to give them
entire control otthe road. The purchase of
the stock, the payment of fees, and other in?
cidental expenses, absorbed about $300,006,
now represented by twelve shares. The
holders of these shares compose the Green?
ville Ring. The money paid out in their
namee.. or the greater part of if, did not, it
is shrewdly "surmised, -eome out of the pock?
ets of the Ring. Taking possession of their
property, they soon found thal the earnings
would not enable them, whatever their prom?
ises, to rebuild and thoroughly equip the
road. This, however, gave the Ring little
concern, as they fondly believed that the
Wilmington and Columbia and the South
Caroliaa Railroads would become active
bidders and would buy out the Riug ata
snug profit But neither company budged.
All negotiations, moreover, were complicated
by an agreement made by the Ring, that
no one of the members should sell out Lis
share without ?he consent of his associates.
The floating debt of the Greenville Road
(about $750,000) became very troublesome.
Woree than eilis, the kind friends who had
advanced money to the Ring required its re?
turn. The road was falling to pieces, and,
as accident followed accident, fast became a
public nuisance instead of a public benefit.
Driven to desperation' the Ring deter?
mined to draw once more upon the public
purse, and prepared a biH whioh provided
that the State should endorse the bonds of
the road to the extent of $10,000 a mlle
for every mile of road which the company
might own or thereafter acquire. This
would enable the Ring, in connection with
the Lauren? and the Unios- and Spartanburg
Railroads, te -pocket about'$4,000,000 in
booda of the State. Even at forty cents on.
the dollar the sale of these bonds would put
the Ring out of their misery. Bat it was
evident that to pass tais, monstrous Bill
wooid take a large suv. of money, arid, a
few days ago, the Biog opened negotiations
[ for the sale of their shares to the South Cano
I fina Railroad Company.
1 The first proposition made by the Ring
was tb sell their shares for $1,000,000, the
South Carolina Railroad assuming, besides,
the whole floating debt of the Greenville
j road. This waa instantly rejected, and the
South Carolina Railroad offered to give
$650;000 and lift the floating deb:. The
Ring then agreed to take $750,000, but the
South Carolina Railroad would not increase
its bid, and the negotiation came to naught
Without more ado the Ring pressed on
with the Greeuville Bill, which, before it
passed the House, was so modified as to
give the Ring a lump endorsement of $2,000, - 1
000, instead of $10,000 a mile for an indefi?
nite numiaer of miles. .
Now this is the point to which we des'.re
to draw the attention of- the Senate A
Ring of speculators buy a railroad for about
$300,000. They find that to then-., it is a
poor bargain. Purchasers are ba'd to "fi nd, '
and the Ring have not the menus of carry?
ing on the enterprise. They are Offered
$650,000, which is twice as much as the
property cost; but they refuse this, aud, by
barefaced bribery, induce the House to pass :
a Bill which gives the Riug a State endorse?
ment for $2,000,000. The Greenville road
is, we admit, necessary to the upper part of
the State: But the existence of- the road,
and its proper management, do not depend
upon its remaiuiog ia the hands of the
Ring. The Ring can sell out at a profit to j
a company which will put the road in order
and make it a great highway. There ia no
other obstacle than the cupidity of the Ring.
With what grace, then, can the Ring demand
that the State come to their relief, and
secure them a huge profit at the expense of
the people ?
We hope and trust that the Senate will
reject the BUL It bought its way through
the House, and the same tactics are expect?
ed to succeed in the Senate. But we are
not yet ready to believe that there are not
eleven men in the Senate who have the com?
mon decency to vote against the bill. It re- '
quires a two-thirds vote. Eleven senators
can defeat ?lie bill, aud by so doing save the
credit of the State,- and administer a titting
rebuke to those miserable members of tho
lower House who sold their votes for cigars,
greenbacks aud whiskey. .
' Thc Position of Governor Scott.
Governor Scott does not mince words in
idiscussing the various schemes for plunder?
ing the State treasury. His general posi?
tion, as repeatedly announced during the
past four weeks, is this : The State is not in
condition to lend Us money or creditfto any
undertaking, wluitever its merits-r-all Bills,
therefore, which directly or indirectly in?
crease the liabilities of the State will be
vetoed by the Executive. In speaking of
the nefarious Greenville Bill, Governor Scott
goes farther. He says that .itcan only be
passed by wholesale bribery, and that he
will veto the Bill. Should the Bill pas3 over
the-Executive veto, which is unlikely, the
Governor will refuse to sinn or issue the
bouds which it proposes to issue, and he will,
also, apply to the courts to restrain other
State oiflciaU from signing or issuing the
These are Governor Scott's views. For
the sake of this whole people, white and
colored, Republicans and Reformers, we trust
that he wiri stand firm aud fulfil to the letter
his every pledge.
. The Roll of IuCamjr.
These are the mern chosen to represent the
interests of Charleston County in the Gene?
ral Assembly, and who betrayed their high
trost?n Friday last by voting for the infa
mqns Greenville Railroad swindle. Let the
people, whose hard earnings they have
striven to filch, mark and'remember every
man of them :
T. A. DAVIS. J. B. DENNIS, J J. HARDT,
P. P. HEDGES, H? H. HUNTER, W. R. JBRTET.
J. w. LLOYD, E. MICKET, A. SMITH.
Those who dodged the issue by being ab?
sent were :
TIM. HURLEY, W, Pi GLOVER, A. LOGAN,
R. BRYAN, A. P. FORD, W. E. ELLIOTT.
Had these men done their duty and stood
by their colleagues, Messrs. O. R. Levy, P.
J. Andell and B. A. Bosemon, (to whom all
honor!) in opposition to the swindle, the
whole corrupt scheme would now be dead.
To the honor of the Reformers, be it said,
thai only two of their number-J. L. Shank
lin, of Ocoiffce, and H. Sullivan, of Green?
ville-voted for the bill
A Two Million Robbery !
The Greenville Ring, if the Bill becomes a
law, will exchange their endorsed bonds for
the bonds of the State. In this way two

gent liability. The Greenville Bill ls, as a
Republican contemporary well puts it, "a

What It Costs.
It was currently reported In Columbia on
Friday that the Greenville Ring were pre?
pared to spend $80,000 to secure the pas?
sage of their swindling Bill. As much money
as this may not have been at their command,
but they offered one member of the House
S500 for his vote on Thursday, and, at thie
rate, the Ring must have bled very freely.
All day Thursday the Ring kept an open bar
in the Judiciary Committee Room adjoining
the Hall of the House of Representatives.
Whiskey was drunk by the gabon, and
cigars were smoked by the hundred. When
the House adjourned on Thursday night sev?
eral of the colored members were unequivo?
cally tipsy. Comptroller-General Neagle
was a prominent character upon the floor of
the House, and appeared to be the general?
issimo of the members who sided with the
Ring. Until he gave the word .the House re?
fused to adjourn, and, when the vote was an?
nounced, a drunken colored member sprang
to his feet and invited "all the members
"who voted aye !" to step into the Judiciary
It is said that some senators who have a
sneaking fondness for the Greenville swiu
dle, but have not the cheek to vote for
it. intend to make a compromise by absent?
ing themselves from the Senate while the
Bill is on its passage. This shift w?|? not;
serve them. The senator who, by dodging
the vote, allows the Bill to become ?. .aw, is
as guilty in the public eye as he who casts a
square vote in its favor !

tilled liquors-and a variety of tonic, alterative
and ami bilious vegetable production-, among
