A ?'Jlost Damnable Conspiracy.";
J. R, Blackman, Esq., the accomplish
ed correspondent of the Neics-and Cou
rier, who reported the recent political
trials' in Columbia for that journal,
drops the curtain on the great Green
backVRadical combination performance,
in the following style We copy and
publish Mr. Blackman's letter in our
editorial columns, because it says just
what we want to say, only in a more
forcible manner than we could say it,
He says: "Now that the conspiracy to
<50BVict Democratic citizens in the
United States Court by means of juries
packed with Republicans and.Greeh
Bp&aekers has failed, it is a matter of jus
jsSrtiee to those who stood up for right
against oppression that thepublic should
gebe gjven their names, and on the other
hand' it is a matter of justice to the
ggftubiie to know the names of the miscr
fiBfrbie gang who, under oath to well and
* tornly try and true deliverance make,
voted every time in the jury-room to
convict Innocent men on absolutely no
proof, and who would have done so
'. . equally as speedily if the Government
hM not eyen gone through the farce of
|||"a trial. The. three men to whom the
people of South Carolina owe the deliv
. erance of the defendants in these cases
fl*e Messrs. Gullen Lark of Laurens, ,T.
G; Long of Union, and Hezekiah E1?3
?f JKerahaw. These gentleman were
assumed -by Melton and Speer, because
ipof ther Greenback or Republican sym
- pathies, to be like the .rest of their
cringing minions on the panel, but they
were mistaken. And to prove that the
effort was to convict, testimony or no
testimony, Melton eliminated these gen
tlemen from his select crowd just as
^fc^^slr^fmvr^ like the
do hisMirty work. The names^S^he
white jurors who in every casciS,
which they were used voted for convic
tion, were Middleton Ray of Spartan
burg, Fuller Prickett of Orangeburg,
C. C. Turner of Spartanburg, J. IL John
son of Clarendon, Wm. Grant of Ches
terfield, D. C. "Wolfe of Lancaster, E. R.
Bolger of Charleston, E. L. Arthur of
Orangeburg, and John Agnew of Colum
bia. Negroes are not mentioned. Noth
ing better could be expected from them>
but the names above given are white
men. They have cast their lot with the
lowest elements of tho Radical party.
^^Let ^rre^peopla^omposing the commu
nities in which trfsj^livc see to it that
they henceforth tmilrireit^^ssociates
?: there and be forever shut out astffi^jlean
things from the threshold of decent ancT
. respect-able'society. There can be no
\filaim from these jurors'that they acted
from conscientious reasons and founded
their action upon the testimony. It is
positively known, and it dare not be
denied, that these jurors, with the Re
publican negroes on the panel, actually
held caucuses and bound each other to
vote for conviction before. the cases
were brought to trial. "Was there ever
such a travesty of justice in a free coun
try ? Mr. Long, by whose manly adher
ence to his oath as a juror the Marion
defendants were saved from conviction,
Is from a Greenback family, and attend
ed these caucuses, although having no
? sympathy in their nefarious object.
Melton thought he had Long all right,
because his henchmen reported that
Long had attended tho caucuses and
"^was-red-hot for conviction. But Long
was playing .a game that Melton didn't
understand, and Mr. Melton got loft."
Time, in his ever ceaseless, onward
march, has again brought us to the
threshold of Christmas, and it is meet
and proper for us at this season to turn
. aside from the strife and turmoil of
I business, and join with the millions of
our fellow creatures scattered over the
vent of the Prince of Peace into the
- world. The recurrence of this gladsome
timo paints many pictures on the ean
-nivilized world in celebrating the ad
vas of the mind. Some are bright
joyous pictures, full of sheen, dazzle
and glitter, white others,-alas.!: are som
bre and sad and luridly tinted with that
unutterable despair begotten of> the
"might have been"; ""Whata glorions
Christmas that. was when we were all
with father and' mother' at the old
home!" ""What;a ghastly Christinas
was that when ?fathefs chair was for
the first time f*t?d: forever-vacant!."
Thus ring the f'eils of memory, now
joyously, now sadly, and thus will they
ring until the enj't - of time. There are
hearts to-day, arfaitinp patiently, brok
en down in a sorrow that time cannot
heal, for the summons to rejoin some so
loved that the light^of life is already
extinguished, and the motive for exist
ence is taken a-.way. To all such sorrow
ing hearts we Hope the Spirit of Christ
mastide will come in truth and bring
that peace which pa&scth all under
standing. To others, the day is one of
glad rejoicing: to parents in the enjoy
ment of their children's life and. love;
to children, in. the consummation of
deltghtslonganticipated from the hands
of fond and doting parents; to friends,
grasping hands "after long separation,
and, to men and women, who, halting
for a moment by the wayside of life, ex
change s friendly greeting or revive in
social warmth the Yulelog scenes of
long, long ago. Men, hardened by life's
vicissitudes, roughened by a round of
toil, soured by contact with selfishness
and rapacity, will feel their hearts beat
more softly ami their voices sound
nio^gcntly, as animosities are cleared
^avvay and estrangements are healed.
Let them not seek to stifle the prompt
jags of a better nature, but remember j
that a kind act will remove the cob- |
webs that sordidly cluster about the j
heart's best affections. So few Christ
mas days fall to our lot that it is a pity
for us to lose one chance of doing good
that a little selfish advantage may be
gained. To one and all, The Tdies ,\
Democrat extends a hoa.ty greeting,
and hopes that to all those whose heads
are bowed in sorrow will come a peoce
from Him who brought the glad tid
ings of "Peace on earth and good will i
to man" that this world can neither
give nor lake away. WM
Shall Our Town Insuo Bonds?
}Ye mentioned some time ago that
the charter of our town was about to be
amended In some important particu
lars, One change proposed gives our
Town Coiincil the right to issue bonds
to the amount of ST5.000 for improve
ments. . We have not given the matter
much consideration, but we are free to
say that we are "not ?n favor of tho
-proposition. If there was an urgent
need for the money, we would have not
a word to say against raising it by issu
ing bonds, but as the improvements
proposed can be carried on from year
to year until completed, the money be
ing raised each-year by taxation to pay
for such Improvements as are expected
tobe made during that year, we can
see no necessity for issuing bonds.
Tho interest that we would have
to pay on the bonds' could be made to
subserve the ends for which the bonds
thcmeslves are to be issued. To illustrate
we will suppose a case. Suppose the town
issue bonds to the amount of 975,000.
To place these bonds advantageously on
the market the interett *on them could
not be fixed at a lower rate than 7 per
cent, per annam. Granting this to be
true, it would take $5,250 each year to
pay the interest on these bonds. Ac
cording to this calculation in less than
fifteen years we will have paid back
in interest to the holders of these bonds
their face value. In the face of these
facts, would it not be wiser and more
economical for our Town Council to
levy a tax sufficient to raise ?5,250
each year over and above the current
expenses for fifteen years and apply it
to the improvements needed than to sad
dle the town with a bonded debt, the
interest on which would amount to that
figure? At the end of fifteen years
we would have raised just as much
money as the bonds would give us and
besides, we would have no huge debt
hanging over us. "We would not op
pose any measure that would promote
the prosperity of our town, but we do
not think that the improvements con
templated are of sufficient importance
to warrant us in assuming a debt of
such huge proportions.
In answer to the charge made by
some of our State papers that the
"Augusta Chronicle is furnished to the
members of the South Carolina Legisla
ture free in the interest of the railroads,
that journal says:
"Some of our Carolina contempora
ries arc inclined to be jealous of the
Chronicle's increasing circulation ac
ross the river. "With our full Columbia
specials, this paper is eagerly sought
for in the Pallmetto State, anil its free
distribution to members of the Legisla
ture is inspired by no motive other
than one of courtesy to the honorable
gentlemen, who, we are gratifiied
to know, appreciate the compliment.
There was a time?in 1876?when the
Chronicle was needed in Carolina, and
there never has been a moment, we be
lieve, when its circulation has not been
.welcomed. Some of our eldest and best
paiTCT&pe Carolinians, and we are not
aware tiJpt its universal reception in
Columbia iTi??-3ll distasteful, except to
a few disgruntled^SWTials. The covert
charge, then, that the^chronicle is fur
nished in the interest of tn^FS^roads,
or that its circulation is secureoNby..
aught but a general interest in the
prosperity of the good people of that
State, is unequivocally false.
The Chronicle has built up a fine cir
culation in our State. It is an excellent
paper, always outspoken in its utter
ances, and has rendered valuable service
to our people in the past, and we hope
it will not be overwhelmed by the petty
meanness that is now marking the ac
tion of some, of our State papers. We
read the Chronicle with as much
>preasur6 and profit as any paper that
visits-bur sanctum.^ ,
The newsplip^re--?;ho^dvocated Mr.
Carlisle's election are anything butiTTai>.
monious on the tariff question. The
News and Courier insists on a "tariff
for revenue only" plank in tho Demo
cratic platform, while the New York
World boldly proclaims that "Neither
the Democrats in Congress, nor the
Democratic National Convention, nor
any sane man will think of adhering to
'a tariff for revenue only.'" Thit is
pretty heavy on the editors of the News
and Courier, who are generally regard
ed as sane men, but a little cranky on
the subject of the tariff. The World
further says that the word "only" will
be omitted, as it defeated the Democra
cy in 1880. "We hope the Carlise organs
will reconcile their differences on this
important question, as it is certain we
can't have a "tariff for revenue only"
plank and an "incidental protection"
plank in our platform at the same time.
Somebody is going to bo disappointed.
The New York Sun sometime ago
said that "the gentlemen who favor a
strictly revenue tariff, on the ground
that it comes the nearest that is possi
ble to the system of free trade, have
now got control of the organization of
the House of Representatives. They
are pledged to bring in a bill for the
reduction of the tariff; and this reduc
tion, according to their programme and
their promise, must be based upon the
principle that revenue alone is to be
aimed at, and" protection excluded."
Commenting on this paragraph the
New York World says that "No such
programme is thought of as possible.
Not a man in the Democratic party has
hinted at such an absurdity as a tariff
.with protection excluded. There are
more free-traders in the Republican
party than in the Democratic party,
and very few in either." We wonder if
the World exchanges with the News
and Courier t
The ppoplc of South Carolina owe J.
K. Blacknum, Esq., the staff correspon
dent of the News and Courier who re
ported the recent political trials in Co
lumbia, a debt of grat itude for the fear
less way in which he exposed the mean
ness of .Melton, Speer & Co. in their ef
forts to convict innocent Democrats of
the most infamous offences. We would
not detract one iota from tho credit
duo the lcgul gentlemen who so man
fully and successfully stood between
these innocent Democrats and their vile
pursccutors, but we honestly believe
that J. K. Blackinan contributed as
much, by his scathing letters, as any one
to the happy termination of these po
litical persecutions. He not only ex
posed the high-handed methods of Mel
ton and Speer, but, also the inconsisten
cies of the lying Government witnesses.
Jurymen Prickett and Arthur, with
all their prejudice and hatred, could not
do the white people of the State any
harm w hile serving Melton and Speer
in Columbia. Bond planted, Melton
and Speer watesed, but Prickett and
Arthur couldn't give the increase.
Ol"R neighbor, the Augusta Chronicle
and Coiistitiiti&nalist,'mmt not let its
soul be troubled over the eccentricities
of some of our Scute journals. They
don't mean any harm. They are only a
little off at times.
The Greenbackers who have been
bootlicking Melton and Speer for tie
last week or two in Columbia must feel
pretty sore over the termination of the
political persecutions in a fiasco.
Some of our exchanges are congratu
lating the News and Courier on its es
cape from tho dish of crow which some
of us predicted wouid be its diet after
the election of Speaker. These congrat
ulations are premature. Wait until af
ter the Convention meets and defines
the Democratic position on the tariff.
If the party adopts the Ohio idea of in
cidental protection to home industries,
which now seems very probable,'Our
Charleston cotemporary will, have to
eat crow, or do what it has invited the
friends of Mr. Randall to do, quit the
The names of Messrs. Cullen Lark,
of Laurens; J. G. Long, of Marion; and
Hezekiah Ellis, of Kershaw should be
written in big, black letters on the heart
of every man in Souh Carolina who
loves justice and hates oppression.
These are the three men who dared to
throw aside their political prejudices
and disdain their personal interests to
regard their oaths as jurymen and do
justice to the Democrats whom it was
intended to punish for the victories of
their party and their State's rejection
of radicalism and crankism.
A leather medal inscribed with the
Word '-Traitor" should be presented to
Arthur and Prickett, the tw<o white
men from this county who were among
the most servile tools of Melton in per
secuting Democrats before the United
States Court in Columbia. Their igno
rance and obscurity is no excuse for
their traitorous conduct.
The Louisville Courier-Journal puts
the country on notice that it will not
be a stickler for aHariff for revenue
only" in the next Democratic platform.
This is following Mr! Carlisle's lead in
the line of true reform.
The Times and Democrat will not
suspend on account of Christmas. So
our subscribers can look for their
paper as usual next week. We wish
every subscriber, whether he has paid
up or not, a merry, merry Christmas.

After the reading of the appoint
ments the Conference was adjourned
with benediction by Bishop AVilson, to
meet in Charleston next year.
AVe had the pleasure of meeting in
Columbia last Saturday Brother Haz
ard, of the Geoagetown Enquirer, who
is one of the handsomest members of
the present Legislature,
As expected, the political trials in
Columbia came to an ignominious end
on last Thursday. The collapse -was
rather more sudden than was looked for
considering the great pomp and pre
partion that was displayed on the part
cf the prosecution. -On Thursday
morning, Melton, and Speer paraded into
the Court room loaded, as usual, with
books and papers, and it was presumed
from this fact that the Fairfield Demo
crats, whose cases came next, were to
be the subjects of a demolishing on
slaught. As soon as Judge Bond took
his seat, Col. Haskell, counsel for the
Democrats asked for time as several
essential witnesses for the defence were
absent. Melton rose and objected to
the delay with considerable vigor. To
the complete discomfiture of Melton
and Speer, Judge Bond, evidently dis
gusted at the whole affair, said: "I
don't think it is worth while to pro
ceed with this case or any of these
cases. The juries have been locked up
for several days with no result. It
seems to me that we are making no
progress whatever, and I think that the
cases should be continued to the next
term." Judge Melton demurred at this
with considerable demonstration, after
which Judge Bond quietly ordered a
continuance of all the political cases
until the next term. Thus ended the
farce for the present, and probably for
all time. Melton went out as he came
in, having accomplished nothing. Speer
hastened back accross the Savannah
without a single Democrat scalp to
adorn his fame, and the pliant and dis
appointed Greenbackers scampered
back to their various hiding places.
Speer has evidently found out now that
juries in South Carolina, although
"packed" as they were in Columbia
with such care for his special benefit,
are not quite as plastic and unanimous
as they are in Northern Georgia where
he succeeded recently in convicting a
number of Democrats. We hope he
?oes home a wiser if not a better man.
'he result of the trials has been, two
mistrials and one acquittal. This is all
that has come of the vast expenditure
of money and labor by a partisan gov
ernment for the gratification of parti
Since our last issue the Legislature
has done very little. In the Senate the
Divoice Bill came up and was killed.
This disposes of this question in South
Carolina, and we are glad of it.
The most important matter that has
been brought up this session in either
House, was a bill.to amend the present
Railroad law. After a long and tedious
discussion in the House it was passed
by a vote of 50 to 57. The colored mem
.hers voted solidly for the bill. It is
claimed that this measure practically
repeals the Railroad law passed last
winter. The opponents of the bill claim
that it will-not pass the Senate, and will
therefore be defeated. The House has
also passed a bill repealing the Lien
Law, to go into effect on the first of
January, 1885, but the Senate refused to
concur, so the bill was killed.
