TIES South Carolina delegation is
divided in opinion on the Blair bill.
Senator Hampton and Representatives
Dibble and Smalls favor it; Senator
Butler and Representatives Aiken,

hill and Perry are doubtful.
TnE Florence correspondent of the
Darlington News says: A gentleman,
whose opinion is worth something, said
on our streets a few days ago that the
next Governor of South Carolina will
be either Gen. W. W. Harllee, of Ma
rion, or Hon. W. C. Coker, of Darling
ton. We shall see.
Capt. Geo. Tupper, has written a
"snorting" letter to the Columbia Re
cord, advocating a "new deal" from top
to bottom, denouncing the promise
breaking Democracy, and abusing
everything and every body in general
connected with the administration of
the State government since 187G, and
the Georgetown Enquirer wants to
know if Capt. Tupper ain't a sorehead?
The outlook for free trade in the
South does not look encouraging.
South Carolina denounces free trade in
rice; Louisiana in sugar; Kentucky in
whiskey; Ohio in wool; Alabama in
iron; Virginia in tobacco. And against
the repeal of the tariff on raw cotton,
which keeps the Indian and Egyptian
producta away from the New England
mills, the entire South would rise in
arms to oppose and resist. Free trade
is a beautiful theory on paper, but
you gore a man's ox with it and see
how he rushes to his protection.
TnE Republicans will do their best
to break up the solidity of the South
next fall. Their policy will be to per
suade men of good character who have
not been, in affiliation with the Repul)- '
lican party to take the field in opposi- 1
tion to regular Democratic candidates 1
and to give them the Republican sup- 1
port and vote. On the tariff question ?
and particularly on the question of 1
internal improvements men of good 1
standing in the South will be invited 1
to stand for Congress in opposition to '
the Democrats. 1
The question has been asked as to ,
who will be allowed to participate in ]
the farmers' convention soon to be ,
held. We suppose the invitation was j
extended simply to the genuine out and .
out farmers, those who live on the ,
farm, work on the farm and depend on ;
the farm for their living?a kind of
meeting of the farmers by the farmers j
and for the farmers. Those who follow ,
other pursuits for a livelihood and run ,
a few patches merely as a side dish
would hardly be considered as entitled ,
to a seat in a genuine farmers' conven
Marshall, Texas, where the present
railroad strike originated, has many
titles to historic fame. Thegreatstrike
of a year ago originated there also. It
was the home during his lifetime of
Mr. Wigfall, the great fire-eating sena
tor. It was then one of the wealthiest
towns of the State, but the wealth was
mostly in slaves. It was in Marshall
that Jim Curry killed the actor Porter
seven or eight years ago. But perhaps
Marshall's greatest claim to historic
remembrance is as the birthplace of
Col. Thomas P. Ochiltree, the biggest
liar of the nineteenth century.
An editor might as well make up his
mind to be abused by a certain class of
people. There are some persons who
always abuse editors when they cannot
use them; and Whenever you hear a
man abusing an editor perhaps if you
knew all the facts you would find that
the abuser has tried to use the abused
editor and failed. These things of
course are unpleasant, but an editor
who does his duty doesn't by any means j
get to Heaven '-on flowery beds of ease." !
The only proper rule of conduct for
him is to do what is right and leave the j
results to be taken cure of by God.
The Army Bill.
The population of the United States
is something- over 50.000,000 and this
population, increasing yearly, is spread
ing itself in every direction through
the country. Particularly is this the
case in the West where there are large
areas of fertile lands unoccupied save
by prowling beast and wandering In
dians. Favorable conditions are offer
ed settlers both by the government and
railroad companies and hence the
inarch of population Westward, during
the last ten years, has been unprece
dented. Indian reservations have been
encroached upon until there is almost
daily conflicts between the crowding
settlers and the dissatisfied Indian. In
these conflicts hundreds.of lives and
thousands of dollars have been lost foi
the want of adequate protection on the
part of the government and hence the
necessity of increasing the army from
25,000 to 30,000 as is proposed by the
bill now before Congress. We do not
venture too far in saying that there it
no country on the globe with the same
extent of territory and size of popula
tion that affords such poor protection
to the lives and property of her citizens
as the United States. "What the coun
try needs to-day is better protection
not only along her extensive sea-coast
but on the Western frontier to protect
her citizens from the savage Indians
and in her interior cities to protect
them from mob-rule and anarchy. Our
past experience in the far Northwest
and our recent experience with strikers
teach us that something more is need
ed to protect our people from outrage
than 25,000 troops and poorly executed
laws. A population so mixed as ours
must constantly see the gleam of the
bayonet, and interest so varied must
feel the firm grasp of the law in order
to secure safety for the one and pro
gress for the other.
"We hope, therefore, that our law
makers in Washington will think more
of increasing the country's military
force which gives protection to her
citizens, and less of voting millions as
pensions for the benefit of the few at
the expense of the many. The inter
est of the country seems to demand
not only the passage of this bill but
also the passage of a similar one in
creasing the effectiveness of the navy.
The country evidently demands now
the highest type of statesmanship to
extricate her from her present perilous
condition. That we are on the eve of
a great political revolution can scarcely
be doubted, and it is putting it mildly
to say that our leaders are astounded
at the vast proportions the great labor
problem has assumed. Indeed, from
appearances, it is scarcely more than in
its formative stage and it is difficult to
say what will be the final outcome.
Merchants, manufacturer!, fanners,
mechanics and laborers have appeared
to bind themselves together in a secret
organization to battle with a common
foe?capital as it is seen in powerful
railroad systems, organized syndicates,
land companies, &c. Heretofore labor
troubles scarcely occasioned more than
a ripple upon the surface of our hetero
geneous population, but, now, within
?he period of a few weeks, the entire
mass has been shocked from centre to
jircuinference by a secret force eminat
ng from more than 2,000,000 well or
ganized men. Not only the immediate
scene of the trouble is affected by it but
\ orth, East and South of that point look
>n in amazement at the almost magical
?esults of a force heretofore deemed'
nsignificant. It is in the mouth of
>very body and our people are anxious
y looking to see what will be the re
mit, how it will offset Congress and
vhen that unjust body will act. If it
je like the knownothing party some
?ears ago excite the whole country and
hen suddenly collapse, we shall be
rlad; but if it developes into a perma
lent and controlling force, embracing
t or 4,000,000 voters out of our national
.0,000,000 then the best talenfin the
and must be engaged in the solution
)f the problem and the best statesman
ship must be exhibited in dealing with
'he situation. If a political revolution
jnly results in the midst of our pres
ent corrupt surroundings, the country
will likely suffer no material harm, but
if we be called upon to enter another
period of civil strife, so soon after the
last, it will not need the eye of pro
phecy to see broken ties, ruined inter
ests and a dismembered country.
A Heinous Assault.
Nashville, Tenn., Aprfi 5.?A das
tardly attempt at outrage was perpe
trated about 10 o'clock last night in the
very heart of the city. Cries were
heard proceeding from a negro tene
ment house on Cherry street, and
when the door was broken in by the
police a burly negro hack driver named
James Caleb was caught in the act of
outraging a twelve year-old white girl,
Bertha Franklin. The child had been
inveigled into the room by a old ne
gress, whom she asked for a drink of
water, and was afterward induced to
stav all night as it was then dark.
After the child had fallen asleep the
negro fiend crept into the bed, and the
girl's cries brought assistance before
he had acomplished his purpose. Caleb
and the old negress were hurried off to
jail before the fact became public or
they would have been hanged. Excite

MEETING OF SURVIVORS.
Pleasant Reunion of the Old Heroes of the
Second Regiment, S. C. V. A.
Blackvtlle, April 2.?In answer to
the call published in the county papers,
the survivors of the 2d regiment of S.
C. V. Artillery met at this place to-day.
There were about seventy-live men
present, representing all of the com
panies of the regiment except the com
pany from Darlington and the one from
Edgelield. The association was organ
ized by electing E. J. Felder president
and W. T. Ray secretary. Capt. Felder
was the adjutant of the old 2d in the
days "before the Union came in."
After the organization was com
pleted an address was delivered by Dr.
J. F. Baggot, who was the regular
orator of the day, his subject being
"Life's Parade." The address was inter
esting and delivered in a peculiarly
forcible and attractive style.
At tho close of Dr. Baggot's address,
Major G. B. Lartigue was called upon
and he delivered quite an earnest and
entertaining speech, in which hestrong
ly urged the erection of monuments to
perpetuate the memory of our fallen
comrades. This appeal touched tender
chord? in. the hearts of all survivors
and I feel sure that the subject will be
taken hold of and pushed to success.
At the close of Major Lartigue's ad
dress the association adopted the fol
Resolved, That the next meeting of
the Survivors Association of 2d regi
ment S. C. V. Artillery be held at
Brauchville, S. C, on Thursday, the
first day of July next.
2. That all survivors of the 2d regi
ment S. C. V. Artillery, as well as the
public generally, are cordially invited
to meet the survivors at the Brauoh
ville reunion; and that Major Lartigue
and Mr. C. G. Dantzler be selected to
address the meeting on that occasion.
A resolution was passed thanking
Drs. Baggot and Lartigue for their ad
dresses, and to Capt. Lancaster for
starting the organization. A com
mittee of sixteen was appointed to ar
range for the meeting at Branchville.
The meeting then adjourned, and the
survivors dispersed and spent the re
mainder of the day in strolling around
town and discussing incidents of more
than twenty years ago.?News and
On the Situation.
Editor Times and Democrat :
In my previous article I contended
that the farmer, under the present sys
tem of farming, saved no money, and
tried to show who got the benefits of
his labor. On every side we hear com
plaints of times being harder now than
ever before and that money is scarce
and supplies scant. The question,
what can be done to restore the good
condition of the country? is often ask
ed by members of every profession. To
remedy an evil, you must first destroy
the cause of the evil seems tobe the
wiser course just now.
The lien law was evidently intended
by its originators to be a great relief to
our people in their great poverty dur
ing the decade immediately succeeding
the war, but its abuse has certainly
been the root, or foundation, of all our
financial troubles. From the time it
was first enacted until now, it has been
abused by speculating parties?the
*laudholder, the-merchant rtnd the liener
"or laborer himself?until it has become
alarming to interested property holders,
and, if not stopped or modified in some
way speedily, will ultimately affect
seriously all parties. The country is
now packed full of horses, mules buggies
and wagons belonging to irresponsible
parties who have no money or supplies
on which to live, and nine out of every
ten never experience the pleasure of
paying cash the year round for their
Mr. Tillman, backed by a few follow
ers, have stirred up the country to such
a degree that a convention, to be com
posed of farmers only, has been called to
meet in Columbia for the purpose of
deliberating upon matters pertaining
to their interest. In this call practiciU
professional men are excluded because
in such a body they would have two
strings to their bows?one .as a farmer,
the other as a professional man, which
might complicate matters more than
would be desirable.
I blame our leading men, from the
lowest to the highest, to whom we
looked as the guardians and defenders
of the peeple's interests.and especially
so of the agricultural department be
cause this is the foundation of all pro
gress. From their daily experience
they should have seen the evil effects
of the lien law upon both the landhol
der and 1 he laborer and should have
repealed it long ago. It is stated that
the farmers are in the majority in the
Legislature; if this is so, these, as prac
tical men, should have known that the
ruin of the whole state was only a
question of time. Considering the
hard times and, particularly, the'finan
cial condition of the farmers or tax
payers, very nearly all our officials are
paid too high. Our trial justice sys
tem is partly a swindle upon the peo
ple; our free schoal system is money
thrown away; and our road law is
worse than all, giving us good roads
only in tho summer season when there
is little or no hauling to do. The
small night-shops, which spring up all
over the country in the fall or harvest
season, demoralize the labor and harrass
the producing farmer; and our taxes
are one-third or one-fourth too high.
The Board of Equalization, another
nuisance made by the Legislature and
paid by the people, conies behind the
tax-payer to say whether or not he
swears falsely "on his return (a recrular
slur upon any tax-paying community.)
Upon all these points our people have
complained and claimed redress at the
hands of those who were in positions
to give it. After all these, wrongs
heaped upon us year by year, can you
blame the people lor seeking redress by
whatever means in their power.

Granting that the brutal massacre of
