Lock fJox "No. 11G, Orangeburg, S. C.
Inquiry of merchants and business
men will always bring the answers,
"business dull, nothing doing and hard
times," without their being able to ac
count for it or to approximate a satis
factory reason. While this may be
true, and doubtless is true, the signs of
industry and thrift around us do not
materially differ from other years at
the same season. Builders are busy
and, apparently, have had, at all times,
as much work as they could well at
tend to; public carriers are constantly
on the go and seem to enjoy as little
rest as any class of our citizens; even
the merchants, on the usual busy days,
have enough to do to keep them from
loafing about the streets and have cer
tainly enjoyed prosperity enough to
keep their stocks up and their places
of business in excellent condition. State
and city taxes have been paid without
any considerable amount of grumbling;
lawyers are unusually affable and have
always enough clients about to keep
them in that amiable mood; and, not
less an index of success than the others,
schools are full and doing more effec
tive work than ever before. These
appearances are gratifying, and may
not a solution of the problem be found
in the fact that Orangeburg has in
deed grown to be a city with enlarged
capacity for business; that our mer
chants, feeling themselves financially
stronger, have increased their stocks
and are better able, than ever before,
to do a large business; and that our
people, having paid a large per cent, of
their debts, are better able to economize
and consequently are more independ
ent of merchants, factors and specula
tors. The discouragement, therefore,
does not arise so much from an actual
falling off in business as from disap
pointment because business has not in
creased in proportion to the capacity
to transact it. As the city grows and
our capacity for busies increases
new enterprises ought to be developed,
and the territory of suppy ought to be
enlarged. For Orangeburg to sit still
and allow large slices of her territory
to be cut off and given to Charleston
or any other market is suicidal in the
first degree, and is unbecoming the
character of so "progressive and thriv
ing a community. She must reach out
her arms by constructing railroads,
wherever these can be made available
for enlarging her area of supply; by
creating new channels of trade, wher
ever these may be feasible; and by mak
ing her market a cheaper and a more
reliable market than any within a
radius of a hundred miles. She must*
also hold her present territory by im
proving her common highways. This
can and must be done by straitening
and grading those already existing, by
cutting new ones in every direction, by
building bridges, and by shortening
the distance from this'center to every
point of the compass. Xo community
can flourish without good highways,
strait and with level and hard beds.
The future prosperity of Orangeburg
depends as much or more upon com
mon highways as upon railroads, be
cause when the former are good it is
cheaper to haul farm produce than to
use the rail and pay freight. This is
the experience of every growing town
until it becomes a commercial mart,
when extent of territory and railroad
connections become a necessity. There
is no truer exponent of theprogrcssive
ness of a country than its common'nigh
ways and there is no,, better way of en
larging our capacity for business and
securing a sure supply of business than
by these methods, together with a cheap
and rehable market.
Few nations have exhibited truer
magnanimity and a higher sense of
justice in dealing with troublesome
elements of their population than the
United States with reference to the
Indians. This people has cost the
government millions of dollars and
thousands of lives already and yet,
numbering only 205,000, they have a
landed estate, granted by the govern
ment of 132.00O.000 acres. If equally
distributed, this would give each red
skin nearly 500 acres; but the law
allows 1,100 acres to an Indian and his
squaw and, if the family numbers six
in all, 3,300 acres are set off for their
personal use. The Sioux seem to be
the pets and are allowed 20,000,000
acres, an allotment of 815 acres to every
lazy red skin, which justly entitles
them to the time-honored appellation
oi' landed aristocrats. Besides this there
is an annual appropriation of uboutl
0,000,000 dollars for the support of .
Indians. It seems altogether feasible
that these people ought to be very com
fortable and happy. "Lo, the poorj
Indian" sounds very strange with these
facts before us and we are rather in
dined to the opinion that they should j
constitute the richest class of our popu
lation. If they are not, we had better
divide two-thirds of this large estate
among the white settlers who arc
crowding upon the Indian reservation.
Married Woman'* Contracts.
The Supreme Court of the State has
lately filed a very important decision
relative to the validity of contracts
made by married women. The facts
in the case were: Bawls & Wilhalf, be
ing indebted to C. C. Hahenicht, gave
him a note, with Mrs. Jennie Agnew.
a married woman, as surety. The note
being sued on. the Court hold that
Mrs. Agnew's contract as surety is
void. The Act of 1872 gave to a mar
ried woman the right "to contract or
be contracted with in the same man
ner as if she were unmarried." But
the Revised Statutes of 1882 amends
the Act of J872 by inserting the words
"as to her separate property? The
Supreme Court holds that before a
married woman can be made liable on
a contract made by her it must be made
to appear that the contract was made
in relation to or concerned her separate
property. The Court goes further and
says (we quote from the decision). "If.
therefore, a wife should sign a note as
security for her husband or, indeed, for
any other person, and should declare in
the note in express terms her intention
to bind her separate estate, that would
not make the contract valid as to her,
unless it was made to appear that the
contract, though executed by her as
surety, was designed to benefit her
separate property, or in some other way
related to or concerned such property."
Home Kule fur Ireland.
Mr. Gladstone delivered his expected
and now famous speech in parliament
on last Thursday. The "grand old man"
was received with the most overwhelm
ing applause and he unburdened him
self of his great task with firmness and
vigor. The policy of a parliament for
Ireland, which he presented, is sur
rounded by many difficulties, and
further ventilation of the whole sub
ject will be necessary to obtain an
indorsement of the plan offered. lie
sets before the English people that a
crisis is upon them, and that action for
the pacification of Ireland is absolutely
necessary, and that action must he
immediate. Mr. JParnell seems to en
dorse the general policy offered by Mr.
Gladstone, but amid so many contend
ing elements as are at present presented
in the parliament it requires much
deliberation to settle this matter to the
accptance of a majority.
The Silver Qnetttion.
The silver struggle culminated in
the House last Thursday by two votes
being taken, the combined result of
which leaves the coinage law exactly
as it stands at present, two million dol
lars per month. The first vote was on
I Mr. Dibble's motion that silver coinage
be suspended after a certain time, if
the co-operation of European countries
in circulating silver could not be ob
tained. This was defeated by a vote
of 84 ayes to 201 noes. The bill of Mr.
Bland providing for the free and un
limited- coinage of silver, which had
been reported adversely from the com
mittee, then came up and was lost by
a vote of 126 ayes and 163 noes. Of
Carolina Congressmen those voting for
free coinage were Messrs. Perry and
Tillman. Those voting no, were
Messrs. Dibble, Hemphill and Smalls.
Messrs. Dargan and Aiken did not vote.
. It is charged in some quarters that
the Orangeburg Agricultural Society
by its action last Saturday arrogated to
itself an importance that it does not
possess, and in electing delegates with
out calling a general meeting of the
farmers of the County that it acted
without authority. This is altogether
a mistake. Under the call for the
Columbia Convention each organized
Agricultural Society in the State were
invited to send five delegates, and it
was under this suggestion that the
Society elected its delegates. Of course
this does not prevent the farmers out
side of the Society from holding a meet
ing and sending delegates if they see
fit. There is no presumption on the
part of the Society, and no one need
feel aggrieved at its action.
A Farmers' Meeting.
As will be seen by a call in another
column the farmers of the County are
requested to meet at the Courthouse
on the 24th instant, for the pursose of
electing delegates to the Convention
which assembles in Columbia on the
29th instant. This is an important
meeting and should be attended by
every farmer in the County who can
possibly make it convenient to do so.
THE Orangeburg Agricultural So
ciety at its meeting last Saturday
elected Drs. J. W. Summers, J. C. Hol
man and Messrs. E. It. Walter, Jas. H.
Fowles and James M. Moss as delegates
to the Farmers' Convention in Colum
bia to represent the Society. Every one
of these gentlemen are good and true
men, and will faithfully represent the
best interests of the tillers of the soil.

New York Journalism.
The relations of some of the leading
papers on Printing House. Square are
strained. Matters look black and un

Miller has this paragraph in his last
It is reported that the New York Sun
will shortly be enlarged from its pres
ent four-page form to a sheet of eight
pages. This change will be made, we
suppose, upon the theory that a crotch
ery and spiteful old man who has
brought a once valuable newspaper to
the verge of ruin can restore its wast
ed circulation and prosperity by taking
twice as much room for the display of
his insane freaks and the paying oil of
his private grudges.
This is good for a polemic, but not so
strong as he can do, when occasion ar
rives or the weather is bleak. Hear
Mr. Whitelaw Heid, the editor of the
New York Tribune, knowingly, wil
fully, and maliciously falsifies and lies
in each and every one of the statements
he has made or caused or allowed to be
made 'in his paper reflecting on the
course of the Times toward Mr. Jacob
Sharp's Broadway railroad. The state
ments, insinuations, hints, allegations,
charges, innuendos and implications of
Mr. Whitelaw Heid and his Tribune
touching the Times' views and com
ments upon the Hroadmay railroad,
now or in the past are, all and several,
wanton lies, uttered with wicked in
tent to deceive. That seems to us to
meet the case fairly well.
"Well Pleased with Hlw."
The Colleton Press, of the 8th instant,
"llichland, writing to the Augusta
Chronicle, states that Mr. Jennings W.
Perry, of Waiterboro', and Solicitor of
the circuit, wilP oppose Mr. Dibble, in
the first Congressional District. Mr.
Perry, is not of Waiterboro, neither is
he solicitor of the Second Circuit. It
would be hard to find a man'that could
beat Mr. Dibble in his district. The
people are well pleased with him and
we feel safe in saying that the entire
white vote of Colleton will go solidly
for Mr. Dibble, if he is a candidate in
the approaching campaign."
We are pleased to know that our
Colleton friends are so much attached
to Mr. Dibble. We are satisfied that
their confidence is well bestowed, and
that they could not get a better man to
look after their interests in Congress
than the Hon. Samuel Dibble.

BARNWELL IN A BLAZE.
I Destruction of Brown'? Stores und Stables

Bahn well C. IL, April'8-5.30 A.
M.?The embers are smoking over the
most destructive fire that has occurred
in Barnwell since Sherman visited it
in 1865. It orignated in a corner of
Mike Brown's store about 2.30 A. M.,
and was not discovered until the whole
corner of the building was in flames.
All the buildings in this section of the
town being of wood and built close to
gether, the flames spread from building
to building until they destroyed Mike
Brown's main store building, his furni
ture store, stables, grain store and the
mess hall for his clerks, (Jen. J. C.
Davant's law office, and the tip-town
telegraph otlice. Charles Carroll Simms
and W. A. Ilolman had law ofliccs over
Brown's furniture store, and only the
books and papers of Mr. Simms were
saved; his odice furniture and every
thing that was in Mr. Holman's ollice
were destroyed. The furniture in
Brown's furniture store, and the books
and furniture of Gen. Davant were
saved. It was with great difficulty
that the store of JIagood 'Jros., the law
ollice of Col. W. II. Duncan, the store
and billiard saloon of Johnson Tobin,
'the bakery of G. K. Ryan, and the frame
of the Methodist Church, which is be
ing built, were saved. Every one of
these buildings caught on fire, but were
saved by the timely exertions of the
citizens. Charlie Califf, one of Brown's
clerks, had to jump out of a second

While the baby quietly plays on the

thermometer indicating 75 degrees, I
find that a pleasant, dreamy kind of
feeling steals over me as the con

fall upon the ear mingled with the
lazy, soothing, dream-provoking, con
stant sighing of the gentle zephyrs as
they softly brush their way through

swayings of their lofty tops.

and you are making the most of the op

idle, thriftless farmers learn a lesson
here. Real life with happiness is ac
tivity. Xo activity?no life. How
thankful man should be for life, for
health, and the opportunity to be en
gaged in active, useful and honest em
ployment. How insipid, miserable and

definite object in view. Alter all
there is more enjoyment in the hopeful
pursuits of an object than in its pos
session or acquisition. How we all
farmers, merchants, doctors, &c, strove
last year; but we were all disappointed
in net realizing what wc expected as
the material result of our labors. The
merchant was hopeful and happy while
advancing his goods on credit, the dili
gent farmer enjoyed the planting and
tilling of the soil, and the good physi
cian rather enjoyed the labor, toil and
anxiety incident to his practice; when
he saw the happy results in the relief
of suffering. But all labored in the
hope of getting a substantial reward
for their labors; and nearly all were
more, or less disappointed when the
year ended. But was there not happi
ness in hopeful industry? Would there
not have been misery in hopeful idle
ness? Then cheer up farmers! A
merciful Benefactor whispers hope in

Nature is clothed in verdant foliage
again. Then let hope spring up in
your heart as the tender leaflet [springs

learn to practice economy and gradual
ly discard the debt system of farming.
Let the physician not be tempted to
think some of his patrons arc stingy
