topic among the politicians and leading men
who arrive here. The newest phase of it is
a combina'ion for the nomination of Mr.
I Sumner for Presiden'. Ihe argument in ia
'vor of this :s that he would take from the
Republican ratjks more of thc positive voters
-.hose who were pronounced anti slavery
men ia their ea-ly days-than any other can?
didate that CJU'd be named. It is claimed
thai besides this lie wou'd get a'l the support
of Conserva'ive Republicans that any other
nominee could command. The Sumner
movement seems to emana'e from dis?
affected Republicans and does not meet with
warm encouragement from tho Democrats,
especially the old line mea. The majority of
those who favor a departure from a mere
pariy nomination prefer Trumbull or Justice
Davis. A large number of Democrats still ad?
here to the idea that a regular nomina-ion by
the Democratic party, of such an one as Gen?
eral Hancock, who would be strong in Penn?
sylvania would be the proper course to pur?
sue. It is probable that an informal meeting
Ol' members of Congress and other leading
Democrats will take place early next month
to consoler the situation, and In conjunction
with the National Democratic Congressional
committee, issue an address to the Democracy
on the subject."
How is it to be Done ;
Our contemporary, The Courier, has striven
very hard to reduce into an intelligible shape
the thousand and one rumors, relating to the
finances of the State, with which the air. has
been thick since the New York World broke
its lance squarely on the shield of the South
Carolina King. We think that our neighbor
has, now and then, been over-ready to be?
lieve implicitly the wildest statements of sen?
sational reporters, but it bas worked dili?
gently and patiently to get at the truth and
to discover a remedy for the evils under
which the people labor. This, also, has been
the aim of THE NEWS, but we confess that
we are not able to see our way as clearly as
The Courier appears to do. As the case
stands, we have found no immediate and
serviceable defensive measure which the peo?
ple can adopt, except the withholding of
State and connty taxes until the last day of
the period during which, under the tax law,
they may?, without penalty, be paid. This
suggestion has not had the support of The
Courier, which paper, however, lass down
three propositions which, it thinks, will meet
1 all the requirements of the situation. _Theae
First. To reject the fraud by refusing to pay
one single dollar of principal or interest of
these illegal issues.
Second. To prevent, by application to in?
junction by the courts, any further capacity
Third. To bring the perpetrators to justice,
and subject them to the punishment which
thev have invoked upon their own heads.
Thia is a highly attractive programme. If
the people cen get rid of the fraudulent debt
already contracted, and can, besides, pre?
vent fraud in the future and bring every
knavish official to justice, the measure of
their content will be full. Bat bow is it
to be done ? The Courier may have discov?
ered some occult process by which ita propo?
sitions may be changed into tangible facts.
To the public, however, in the absence of
an explanation from those in the secret, the
three propositions must appear vague or
In the first place, how is the fTairato be
rejected "by refusing to pay one single dol?
lar of principal and interest'" of the illegal
issues ? The persons aggrieved are the tax?
payers or property-holders, and we do not
see how they ctn prevent the payment of
either interest or principal of any part of
the debt. This lies within the control of the
State Legislature, and that body lias, hith?
erto, cared not a button for the wish?s of the
taxpaying citizens. The Legislature may
not make an appropriation for, interest, but,
even so, their motive will be, not the pro?
tection of the taxpayers, but the division,
arnongst themselves and their friends, of
the entire income of the State. The pay?
ment or non-payment of the interest on the
debt depends upon the negro majority, and not
upon the white minority. And how will The
Courier reject, or repudiate, the illegal
issues ? "It can give formal notice, as THE
NEWS has done, that the taxpayers, when
they come into power, will not recognize or
pay any fraudulent claim. This is a proper
warning, but what does it amount to just at
this time ? How does The Courier propose
to repudiate-and when ?
Nor do we see that there is anything
practical in the second proposition. The
danger of further over-issues is very remote,
but if the Legislature, next week, authorize
an issue of ten million of dollars of State
bonob how shall ktheir issue be prevented ?
As long as the Legislature does not violate
the organic law of the State, its acts mu3t
stand good with the public and in the courts.
Nor can any court, we presume, restrain a
State Legislature from passing any law, hew
ever infamous. If aa unconstitutional act
be proposed, the remedy must be applied
after the enactment of the law. A simple
proposition to do an unconstitutional act is
not a violation of the constitution. When a
law ispassed,=and not before, its validity can
be tested in the courts. And how could The
Courier,or the courts, prevent the Legislature
from issuing more bonds, if the issue were in
accordance with the organic law of the
State? Perhaps The Courier desires to enjoin
some State official. Very well. But who is
it? And what is he to be enjoined from
doing ? We confess that we are in the dark,
and we ask The Courier to show the public
and our poor selves how its second proposi?
tion is to be made something more efficient
than a plausible generality.
The third proposition is just a9 hard to
fathom. We ask The Courier how are "the
"perpetrators" to be brought to justice? For
several week3 we have had a Pelion upon
0;sa, in the shape of reports cf fraud and
theft, but we have not obtained, it seems, a
single fact which might serve as a warrant
for the arrest of any suspected person. The
New York Times had, at its back, a solid
array of figures. We have nothing positive
-except the famous card of Messrs. Scott,
Parker and Dennis. Has The Courier any?
thing more definite ? If so, let us have it
out, and clo something that will show that
we are making headway in the light with the
We have discussed the propositions ol The
Courier, only for the purpose of asking that
thoughtful paper to explain itself. We will
give Tht Cour er our het-rty help in anything
prompt and*practical; but, with our present
lights, we do no: see that '.lure is any sub?
stantial force n wiu' it ha' ptopo.ed.
That Land Scrip.
We hope that Senator Whittemore will find
.ime, early in the session, to make further
nquirie3 as to the disposition made of the
jand Scrip given to South Carolina by the
About 40,000 acres of the laud were sold
tt 95 cents, and the public would like to
enow whether the Slate had the benefit of
he full price which was paid for the scrip.
ind what has become of the remaining
40,000 acres ? Senator Whittemore might
.muse himself and serve the public by ascer
aining how much land Governor Scott loca
ed during his long visit to the West, and
vhether he bolds any, or all, of'the State
Senator Whittemore declares that he
neans to show the people that he is an hon?
st man. This Agricultural College land
erip would be a good* thing to begin with,
.'be people suspect that there has been foul
)lay and want to get at the truth.
WE wonder whether the good people who
lave just discovered that the official state
nenta of our public debt have been sys
ematically doctored, from the beginning, by
he Scott administration, ever remember,
?th regret, that last year, and the year be
ore, THE NEWS proved, by the official fig
ires, that the amount of debt reported by
he Governor and Comptroller-General was
aillions less than the true total. At that
ime THE NEWS was abused, on all sides, as
? paper which was recklessly breaking down
he credit of the State. Had the people
istened then to our statements they would
ie in better plight this day.
