Brother Jones, of the Spartanburg

to have a controversy always on hand.
President Cleveland was born
on the 18th of March, 1837. He is no

matrimony all the same.
From all we can learn the primary

down this work until his term expires.

Gen. Logan's literary workshop is as
severe as the cell of a Capuchin monk.
A single table, with a cloth top, and
three chairs make up its furniture. The

As qnite a number of the homes of
our people were robbed about the close
of the war by Sherman's bummers, we
have no doubt but that some of them
may have articles of value among
those things which the Government
propose to restore to their owners as
per notice on our first page. Read it.
A r/umber of small fry men in differ
ent sections of the State expect to be
wafted into office by the farmers'
movement. We can name a half dozen
such men in Orangeburg County. The
farmers can see through, their little
devices, and when election day comes
they will realize that they have reckon
ed without their host.
We do not believe that South Caroli

When he was elected to Congress he
laid aside bis large and lucrative law
practice and has devoted his whole time

kind of a Representative the people

five large corporations.
Wonder if the Columbia Record has
been appointed dry nurse of Mayor
Courftnay's little Gubernatorial boom
until that gentleman returns from his
trip to Europe. In a recent issue it
predicts that Mr.Courtenay will be the
next Governor. A few issues before
this announcement was made, the Re- ,
cord stated that Mr. Courtenay had
visited the sanctum of that journal,
from which fact it would appear that
the editor- got his inspiration from
It is said that the Rev. Bruce H.
Williams, colored, of Georgetown, who
has been Slate Senator for a number of
years, will be a candidate for Congress
from the Seventh District. We fully
agree with the News and Courier that
the colored voters of that district could
not support a better man. Senator
Williams although a Republican, has
been singularly free from any entang
ling or doubtful transactions during
his political life. He is intelligent,
conservative and honest.
The New Jersey Prohibitionists
e\ idently believe in prohibition. They
are not to be cajoled into supporting
the Republican party by the promise
that "some day." perhaps in a century
or so, when that organization feels
that it can afford to dispense with the
help of the saloon keepers, it will com
mit itself to prohibition. They say
that, so far as they are concerned, the
only issue that is of importance to-day
is that of prohibition, and they invite
all those who agree with them to vote
for candidates pledged to that policy.
Mr. Tillman Answers Objections.
Ia commenting upon Mr. Tiliman's
suggestion that the Agricultural So
cieties of the State, in convention
assembled, be allowed to elect the board
of Agriculture, the Register said that
such a scheme looked to placing this
department under "the control of a
board elected by a popular farmers'
convention," and that over $200,000 a
year will be placed in the hands of one
"who is to be elected out of doors," &c.
In reply, Mr. Tillman says that the
farmers of this State have not exerted
an appreciable influence in State affairs
for years and they do not mean to re
main "out of doors" any longer, but
they do propose to take control of the
Agricultural Department and also the
money which they alone contribute for
its support. They will see that no
more of this money is paid to lawyers
of the Legislature for any purpose
whatever. With regard to the resolu
tion exonerating the Commissioner of
all blame in this mutter, Mr. Tillman
says that if he had been in the hall
when it passed the convention, he
would have interposed these two ob
jections : (1) The reason, why the suits
could not have been transferred to the
Attorney General and Solicitors, may
be explained by the fact that the law
yers of the Legislature did not care to
handle a case one of their number
already had on hand; (2) Why did not
the Senate, of which this attorney was
a member, after his exposures last De
cember, join the House in taking the
money of the Agricultural Department
out of the control of the board, but
made a specific appropriation for the
same from the treasury. Mr. Tillman
disclaimes having advised this investi
gation of the Chisolm Island suit. It,
however, was a proper subject of in
quiry and the vote to exonerate from
blame applies only to Col. Butler and
not all the parties connected with it.
Farmers do not approve of such jobs.
As to the election of the board of
Agriculture, Mr. Tillman says there is
a vast difference between a "popular
farmers' convention" and a "conven
tion composed of delegates from each
county Agricultural Society." If such
a duty be imposed upon the Societies,
it will keep them alive, increase their
membership and make them more use
ful to the farming communities.
His argument in support of the pro
position to double the privilege tax on
fertilizers to support the College, &c.,
has never been fairly reported by the
papers. It was this : The farmers will
have the same privilege of sending
their children to the L'niversity as they
now have, and the additional one of
sending to the girl's school as other
classes, but the Agricultural CoIIp^c
will be patronized almost solely by
farmers; also he desired to secur: a
liberal and permanent support for this
college from the State. The appropria
tion of $30,000 this year to the Missis
sippi College was niggardly and totally
inadequate to keep 412 students, its
present number, and to avoid going to
the Legislature every year for money
was his main reason for the proposi
tion. It was a poor charge and badly
sustained to say that he desired to de
ceive the farmers by taxing them with
out their knowledge. This argument
was announced in the presence of 300
farmers and the reporters of all the
leading papers of the State, who, he
knew, would give it to the people.
Evidently this is a queer way of de
ceiving. Mr. Tillman is not wedded to
this way of raising money and will
yield to any one who will offer a better.
Objection to putting the college un
der the control of the board of Agri
culture without giving the mechanics
a voice in its management, made by
the. Xews and Courier, is candidly met
with the statement that he is willing
to give them one or two representa
tives on the board if a real bona fuh
representation can be had of that call
ing. But as the farmers alone pay the
tax to sustain the college he thinks
they might be trusted to take care of
the mechanical feature of the institu
The News and Courier doubts
?whether the land scrip fund can be
counted on with certainty. The ainbi
gious wording of the act gives some
shadow for this doubt, but the same
act provides that this money shall be
applied to supporting at least one col
lege where the leading object shall be, I
without excluding other studies, toj
teach such branches as relate to agri
culture and the mechanic art. It can-1
not be claimed that the South Carolina
College meets this positive requirement:
of the Act. Millitary tactics as a
branch is given equal importance as aj
prerequisite to utilizing this fund. If
such is the case, the fund is certainly!
misapplied when it is given to the sup
port either of the South Carolina Cid-1
lege or the Citadel, for the course of
study is much the same in both schools.
Cadets properly taught in the proposed
Agricultural College, may make just as
line a show as our "uuiles^did the other
day in Savannah, and there is no rea
son why the State should pick out sixty- j
eight pets at a cost of -S3'^J each, many
of them rich, rather than extend a fielp
ing hand to any and every deserving j
young mart who may need it. Is it just:
or right ? |

National Taxation. .
The Assistant Register of the United
States Treasury has compiled a table
showing the annual per capita revenue
and expenditures of the United States
from 1837 to 1885, inclusive. The con
trast between different years and differ
ent periods is oftentimes very striking.
Thus, the revenue has been as low as
ninety-six cents for each inhabitant, as
was the case in 1841, and under the
stimulus of war taxes has risen to fif
teen dollars and seventy-three cents
per head, as it did in 186?. Xaturally
the differences between the maximum
and the minimum annual expenditure
for other purposes than the payment
of the principal of the public debt have
been even greater. In 1845 we spent
one dollar and fifteen cents for each
person then in the country, and in 1865
thirty-seven dollars and thirty-four
cents. For the last twelve years the
net revenue, eleven-twelfths of which
comes from the product of taxation,
has ranged from a maximum of seven
dollars and sixty-four cents in 1882 to a
minimum of five dollars and forty-two
cents in 1878. During the same period
expeditures have varied from seven
dollars and seven cents in 1874 to four
dollars and thirty-nine cents in 1884.
The revenues for 1885 were at the rate
of five dollars and sixty-eight cents,
and the expenditures at the .rate of
four dollars and fifty-seven cents. In
I860 our per capita income was one
dollar and seventy-eight cents, and our
per capita expenditure two dollars and
one cent. That is, in the period of
twenty-five years our expenditure have
more than doubled, and in order to
meet them and to pay off the debt the
war made we are taxing ourselves
three times as heavily as we were im
mediately before the war.
The rresbyterian General Assembly
at Augusta last week bv a vote of 137
ayes to 13 nays decided in favor of the
Bible account of the origin of man ?and
against the evolution theory as advo
cated by Dr. Woodrow and others.
This is doubtless a welcome decision to
the large majority of Presbyterians
and will be endorsed by all the churches
of our Christian country. Wehave had
quite enough of interpreting the Bible
by science and think rather that science
should be interpreted by the Bible.
Humnn knowledge would be thegainer
and-Scriptural holiness would spread
more rapidly among men. The ques
tion is entirely a matter of conscience.
If we believe that the Bible is the
word of God, then it is sullicient for us
that the Bible says man was made from
the dust of the ground, notwithstand
ing a thousand learned Evolutionists
may assert to the "contrary. Xothing
in science, which contradicts the Ifkig
narrative, should be accepted as truth1
and this applies to evolution, because
it is a branch of science not taught in
the Bible no more that is skepticism.
These terms are synonymous under
certain circumstances and to say a man
.is an evolutionist is equal to saying he
is a skeptic, unable to decide for
himself upon questions involving im
portant truths. If this theory of evo
lution as to the origin of man should
obtain, it would subvert the whole
foundation of morals and set the world
adrift on a boisterous current where
utter wreck of truth and every thing
dear to man would be the final result.
Figuren of Strike Losses.
The cold figures which show what
losses have been inflicted upon the
country by the late labor troubles are
anything but inspiring. Bradstreet's
for last week contains a summary
showing the wages sacrificed in the
principal industrial centres since May
1, the amount of the injury to current
business and the new business hinder
ed and indefinitely postponed by the
uncertainty growing out of these
troubles. This summary places the
direct loss in wages at S2,SO2,O0O, the
loss to current business at 82,105,000 and
the new business hindered or postpon
ed at 824,800,000, Twenty millions of
this latter item is in building contracts,
which are almost certain to be deferred
for another year, if not longer. Forty
per cent, of the loss on these contracts
will be labor's loss.
"Richland" in the Augusta Chronicle
"I have it from irood authority that
Mayor Courtenay said on leaving Char
leston that he did not want to be
Governor or Congressman. There is
only one chance then for the wishes of
Iiis friends to be gratified. Thev must
force him to accept."
Mayor Courtenay's friends need not
give themselves this unnecessary
trouble. The woods are full of candi
dates for bo'h positions, many of whom
would give as good satisfaction as that
gentleman in cither otlice. This being
the case, we see no need of forcing Mr.
Courtenay out of that retirement that
he seems so anxiously to covet and
which he so appropriately adorns. So
give us a rest on the Courtenay boom,
if you please.

In justice to the 0. K. B. B. C. of this
place 'tis to be hoped you will allow
space in your valuable paper to correct
an error which has been charged
against them. Branchville borrowed
a few men from the above place to

in favor of Midway, and the whipping
is attributed to the 0. K.s. Now, Mr.

Midway in the near future when you
shall have an impartial statement.

The young ladies and gentlemen of

had a social tendency, lor we noticed
that some of the backward young men
managed to get up in conversational
distance of the ladies. 'Tis to be hoped
it will not be the last, for apparantly
it had a good effect upon the male
sex at any rate. There was also an
other picnic at Mr. Fairey's Landing,
your correspondent was not in attend
ance but was told by one who was,
that the day passed off very pleasantly
in boat and buggy riding.
Rowesville is making rapid strides
towards improvement. Its energetic
merchants and officials deserve much
praise for the active interest mani
fested by them in its behalf.

that you will not deposit it in the
waste* basket, and particularly if you
want to hear from Rowesville again.

EVTAWVXLLB, S. C, May 29,188(1.
We have been blessed recently with
rain in abundence, anil farmers are
happy, or at least, they should be.
There are several features, however,
which is not commendable about our
farmers, and one of them is I notice at
our depots, quite a quantity of corn,
hay, oats, guano, &c which they should
produce at home, and they will always
complain of hard times and scarcity
of money so long as they pursue such
a course; but it seems to me that it is
futile to advise them. You have point
ed out the course they should pursue
time and again, but like Ephriam of
old, they are joined to their idols. Let
them go, they will not take warning.
There is a bright future for the econo
mical and industrious farmer, but
there is the point, too many of them
know nothing of economy and less of
industry. Upon the proper"use of these
words hang their entire salvation. It
does not lie in a convention of farmers
or in the power or authority of the
Legislature. They have the power in
their own hands and they can blame
no one but themselves if they do not
use it. Practical economy and indus
try is the remedy.

day says : A terrific hailstorm visited
the Broad River section of this county
yesterday afternoon together with
what is "termed a waterspout. The
wind, rain and hail uprooted trees, un
roofed houses and almost completely
demolished the growing crops. It was
along the same section of the cyclone of
two years ago,and those, who witnessed
both'say this was more destructive than
the cyclone. The hail in the level was
from three to six inches deep. Water
in the fields stood several inches before
it had time to run off. The cotton will
nearly all have to be replanted in this
section. I am told seed is very scarce.

Mormon? Get In Trouble.
Fayette City, Pa., special says:
Seven Mormon missionaries from Utah
began a series of proselyting meetings
at the Valley school house, in Washing
ton township, one mile south of this
place, last Sunday. Their meetings
were largely attended, and they bap
tized several converts. The citizens
became indignr.nt and demanded that
the school house be closed against them,
but it was not done. Last night the
house was overflowed, and at the con
clusion of the services Paul Clayburgh,
justice of the peace arose and denoun
ced Mormonism in a speech of half an
hour in length. lie produced a glass
of solution of arsenic and challenged
the preacher, to drink it, which he had
stated in his sermon he could do with
out harm. The preacher refused and
Clayburgh branded him asanimposter.
and the meeting broke up with a great
tumult, during which clubs, stones and
other missiles were used on the mis
sionaries. They fled for ther lives, but
were so closely pursued by the mob
that they implored the protection of
the justice, who succeeded in calming
the turmoil and conducting them in
safety to their stopping places.
On Wednesday night Mr. and Mrs.
George Keck, who live in Ritchie

the woods near by, roped them to trees,
and beat them in a most brutal manner
with hickory withes. They then burn
ed the dwelling and its contents to the
ground and departed. After daylight

swore out warrants for such of them
as he had been able to recognize, and

As a citizen he was upright and honest,
as a friend true and faithful, as a husband
and father affectionate and kind and as a
man God fearing.
Whereas it has pleased the Supreme Dic

in his death Orangeburg Lodge, Xo. 14(32,
Knights of Honor, has lossed a good mem
ber,'we a kind Brother, the' community an
exemplary citizen, and, whereas we deem
it fitting that we should express our appre

character he bore and to give expression to
the sorrow felt by us as a Lodge and as in
dividuals at his death,
Therefore be it Reselved, that in the
death of Brother Zeigler, this Lodge has
