It is thought that the Legislature
thin winter will abolish the office of
Trlftl Justice aud establish instead a
court for each county on the plan
which prevailed here just prior to the
adoption of the present Constitution.
The office of committing Magistrates
will also be created.
We have thought tho matter over,
and as a journalist it is our duty to
In our judgment, then, the scheme
is one fraught with mischief to tho
people. It is said that these courts shall
be nelf sustaining. How? may we he
permitted to ask. If the salary of
ihe Judges be fixed at one or two
thousand dollars per annum, how are
they to get it upon the self-sustain
ing principle except from tho fines
and costs imposed by them?
And under these circumstan
ces, would fair and impartial
justice be administered by Judges
?hose bread would be buttered in
proportion to the fines pronounced by
The courts shall be self-sustaining,
but one or two thousand dollars a
year will have to come from some
where for the Judgcs'salary. A. and
B. are indicted for *an aggravated
oEsault and battery. A. is poor but
B. is rich. The Judge is longing for
a bonanza in the person of some
affluent offender to contribute to his
salary. The parties are tried and
found gailty. A. is not able to
pay a fine and it would be expensive
to make the county feed him for over
ten or fifteen days, and aftei a long
lecture he is thus sentenced and com
mitted. But B. is rich. He
should set good examples for his
fellows, and he is fined two hundred
dollars and costs or be confined in
the county jail for six months! Of
course the fine is paid and a part of
the Judge's salary is liquidated.
This is one objection to these much
talked of self-sustaining courts
Another is that they will be the
cause of an increase in taxation, aud
the formation of new Court House
Kings. Why is it that the present
Circuit Judges have to interchange
Circuits? Because stationed j at one
place all tho time some of them came
to have pets, local prejudices, &c.
Now, the evil that has been remedied
by causing Circuit Judges to ride the
Circuit of tho whole State is to be
foisted upon us ^in a more hideous
form by these county courts. Besides,
it contemplates taking another right
from the people. The Legislature
will doubtless elect the Judges, and
in nine cases out of ten will elevate
men who could uot bo elected road
surveyors before the people.
Each Court House has some lawyer
whose practice amounts to nothing.
A place must bo made for such men
and hence these much mooted $2000
Let It not be Forgotten.
It is a fault with a great many
peoplo that they never remember
public pledges or promises. While
. ;i?r:t of officetliey are obsequious
ly polite und disgustingly attentive.
But so soon ns they are snugly enscon'
cedin nice paying positions, they drif
back into their natural state, and are
no more attentive to the public than
Sancho Pauza was to Don Quixote
wbcu ho became real hungry.
Now, it will be remembered that
during the late cauvass E. W. Moise,
Esq., Adjutant and Inspector Gensral,
promised that if elected he would
give his entire salary to the free
school fund. He didn't want office
for money. No, nol And perhaps
he will not take any of it; but it
I occurs to us as not being a bad idea
to remind the people of his promise.

An Eminent Jurist and an Upright Judge
i ?Some Reasons why Jndge Maker
Shonld bo Elected to the Bench
Babnwell, S. C, August 20 1877.
To the Editor of the Journal of Com
The name of Judge Maker has
beeu for some time prominently bo
fore the public, in view of the vacan
cies which probably will soon occur J
iu the Supreme and Circuit Court
Benches. His eminent fitness for a
seat on either bench is conceded by
the whole State, and, particularly by
the Bar and people of the Second
Tiic office being for the public, and
not for the benefit of the incumbent,
the qualifications of a condidate
should determine cur choice. Judged
by this standard, Judge Malier
stands before us tried and ^approved,
j It is not too much to say that his ad
administration 'of justice during the
term of four years, \ while he was on
I the Bench, has placed him, in the es
timation of the Bar of the Second
Ciicuit, as worthy to rank with Har
per, Johnston and Wardlaw and oth
er judicial worthies of the State. The
writer, during an experience of more
than thirty-five years at the bar,
has never seen his superior for rapidi
ty of perception, J accurate analyBiB,
clearness of statement, and ready ap
plication of extensive legal knowl
edge to the facts of cases Through
out his whole career ho has been dis
I tinguished by invincible integrity
and irreproachable moral character*
That he was not better known
throughout the State ^before his clcc
I tion to the beuch is due to his great
modesty and the absence of self-ns*
. scrtion on his part. He is in the
prime of life and of robust health,
rendering him equal to the labors of
the judicial office, tnnd may reasona
bly look forward to "many years of
usefulness and distinction.
Justice to Judge Malier requires
that the circumstances of his election,
in 1872, should be stated. These
are personally known to the * writer.
He did not seek the office. Upon the
death of Judge Platt, public atten
tion was immediately directed to
wards him, and he, was solicited
from various quarters, and particu
larly by members of the bar of the
Second Circuit, to allow his name to
be used as a candidate or rather to
consent so sorvo if elected. He re
fused. At the time ho'had an exten
sive and j lucrative practice, which
yielded him an income much greater
than a judge's salary To abandon
this and accept an office with a com
parative small salary, for a term of
only four years, with tho liability of
being elected at the'end of that time
involved a gnat pecuniary sacri
Moreover he was a Democrat and
to accept nn office from a Radical
Legislature, was repugnant to his
feelings, and might subject him to
political misconstruction. These ob-,
jections were frankly stated to those
who had solicited him to accept the
ofTce. They renewed their efforts,
and represented to him the groat im
portance of securing a good Judge
to the Second Circuit and the State
at large, ntjength induced him to re
view his decision, and yield a reluc
tant assent* He made no pledges or
declaration.', used no means and
made no efforts to'sccure his election,
and, pending tho canvass, refused
when requested to visit tho capital.
In 1&76, hejwns a candidate for re
election, but was sacrificed on "Black
Thursday," a day memorable in the
the history of the State. He return
ed to the barv and * is now endeavo
ing to build up again the largo and
lucrative practice which ho had sac
rificed to his soiiBo of public duty.
This detail of facts 31107/, that in ad
dition to his'eininent qualifications a
debt is duetto Judge Malier by the
State, which should be discharged by
his re-election to the bench. \

A DenonciationZof tho ^?tion of Urn Na

Orangeburg, S. C, Aug. 20.
To the Editor of the Journal of Com
Ata meeting of the Orangcburg
Agricultural Society, 1 held at this
place on Saturday, the 18th. the fol
lowing preamble and resolutions
were adopted :
Whereas, there is an' indication on
the part of cotton buyers and specu
| lators to unite among themselves for
the purpose of buying our cotton cro p
net, or, in other words, making the
planters lose the expenses of making ]
up our cotton into bales for market,
thereby making a large grain to the
buyer nnd a corresponding loss to
the pioducer; therefore, be it
Ilcxofrcd, That the Orangeburg
Agricultural Society of Orangcburg
County, deprecate and; oppose the
action of tho. "Intentional Cot&in
Exchange," and all others in sympa
thy with this Convention nnd are de
termined to protect^our own interest
in thL' matter by not consenting to
sell or dispose of our cotton crops to
any psrson, or persons, exclusive of
"tare;" aud that we will oppose the
election of any person, or persons, to
our General Assembly who favors
this greet injustice to the planter.
Resolved, That this preamble and
resolutions be published iu the Joar
nal of Commerce and News and Courier
of Charleston, S. C, also in the Or*
angeburg News and Times, with
tho request that all papers having
the welfare of the cotton planter at
heart do also publish them.

Ajax Defying Lightning?The Re
[ Washington Republican']
Among those whom Moses charged
with certain wrong doings was tho
loquacious and flowery Judge Tom
J. Mackey, who will be remembered
as being hero Inst winter in the role
of champion and advocate of Gover
nor Hampton. As soon as Judge
Mackey heard of the charges against
him he demanded and was accorded
an opportunity to appear beforo the
committee, in order that ho might
"refute tho vile slanders of tho pesti
ferous traducer of honest men's re
putation." Moses was also present
at the lime that Mackey, and tho
effect was somewhat sensational. The
Judge, rising upon his feet, launched
forth upon ono of Iiis grandiloquent
stereotyped speeches about as fol

your midst, known by tho name ot

At this juncture Mr. Moses arose
and walked over towards tho irrepres
sible Judge just as ho was about to
take another spread, eagle flight and
simply held up n paper, sayiug : "Is
