this is the President's scheme, he may
as well abandon it."

President Cleveland's Message
to Congress has been received. It is an
able paper, and like all documents ema

Clevelandish. He is the President, and
he never Jails to let you know it when
he.is called on to give his opinion on
any subject of interest to the country.
If it is Col. Bradley's opinion that

A measure has been introduced in
the Legislature to make the tenure of
office of our Judges for life or good be
havior instead of as at present. This
is a good measure, and we hope it will

to give them a life tenure.
The New York Star says: "Mr.
Blaine is unlucky in his encounters
with hard facts. He has been groaning
about the poor black laborers of the
South getting only sixty cents a day.
His former colleague, W. D. Kelley, of
Pennsylvania, Republican protection
ist of the strongest quality, refutes
him by reporting from the South that
'negro laborers ot Alabama and Ten
nessee are as well paid as white labor
ers of Pennsylvania.'"
Governor B. F. Perry, of Green
ville, S. C died last Faiday at his home
near that city, in the eighty-second
year of his age. Governor Perry was
a grand man. and has gone to the grave
full of honors, leaving behind him a
record that is worthy of emulation by
all. We fully agree with the Colum
bia Register "that there was no more
conscientious and patriotic citizen in
all the State than he who now has been
gathered to the fold of Carolina's great
sons as they sleep beneath her soil."
According to the Boston Globe Col.
William Elliott, who beat Gen. Bob
Smalls, the Republican colored Con

A ?rtrnlng Shame.
. Col. D. F. Bradley, Collector ofln
ternid Revenue for South Carolina,
must have a very, soft place in his
hcurt for the old Radical thieves who
plundered this State prior to their
overthrow in 1870. He has recently
dismissed from the office of Deputy
Collector at 'Columbia Mr.'M. B. Sloan,
a true and tried Democrat, and re-in
stated one Jack Little, a notorious Radi
cal, who use to lill the same position
under Brayton. Why a man like Lit
tle should receive any fav-s at the
hands of a Democratic official can only
be explained by Col. Bradley. During
the days of good stealing Little was
"hail fellow well met" with the worst
element of the Radical party and was
one of the very last of the gang to let
go the public ? teat. He worked with
might and main to defeat the Democ
racy in 188-1, and is no doubt at this
very moment a reviler and hater of the
Democratic party and its President. In
all common decency M*e would like to
know if this is the man to take prece
dence of good Democrats when offices
'are to be distributed? Was the victory
j of 1884 gained for the purpose of re
taining such men in office? Verily not,
and if Col. Bradley does not know it,
he should be made^acquainted with the
fact'as soon a? possible. So far ?s the
dismissal of Mr. Sloan is concerned, we
have not a word to say, but what we
object to is the appointment of so noto
rious a Radical as Little, to so impor
tent and lucrative an ollice in our State,
and we hope that the indignation of
the people will be so loudly and un
mistakeable expressed that even Col.
Bradley will be compelled to respect
their wishes and put none but Demo
crats on guard. He should either do
this, or get out of the way and make
room for a Democrat that will.
A Prohibition Defeat.
In the House of Representatives at
Columbia last Friday a stubborn pro
hibition fight took place on a bill in
troduced by Mr. Boozer, of Edgefield,
prohibiting the sale of liquor absolute
ly in towns of 500 inhabitants or under.
The fight was vigorous and fierce but
carried on in good temper. The sup
porters of the bill were Boozer, of
Edgefield, Dantzler, of Orangeburg,
Archer, of Spartanburg and Purifoy, of
Edgefield. The opponents were Al
drich, of Aiken, O'Brien, of Colleton.
Raysor, of Orangeburg:, Tom Miller, of
Beaufort and Seegere, of Richland. The
bill was defeated by a vote of fifty-six
to fifty-three. We doubt very much
the wisdom of passing such a bill as
was proposed. The present laws on the
subject of prohibition are ample, and
gives the people of each county the
right to say whether they will license
barrooms or not. This, it seems to us,
is as far as the Legislature should go
until the people of the State are ready
for a general prohibition law. As long
as the present prohibition laws are
openly set at defiance, it is useless to
Our Only Chance.
Brother Pratt, of the Palatk'a, Fla.,
Herald says women always will be a
puzzle as long as they live, and then
goes on to prove it by citing an in
stance up in Pennsylvania where two
"coal miners aspired to the affections
of the same maiden, and resorted to the
wager of battle to decide the suit. Af
ter the fight the victor presented him
self to the fair cause of the affray, ex
pecting an approving smile, but she
turned her b;ick on him, and is now
engaged in nursing the defeated cham
pion, with the intention of marrying
him as soon as he recovers sufficient
beauty." Why bless you, Brother
Pratt, if it was not for the self-sacri
ficing spirit of our women that impels
them to side with the unfortunates,
country editors would stand a slim
chance of getting a wife.
The Next H?nde.
Gen. John B. Clark, Clerk of the
House of Representatives, has com
pleted and caused to be printed an un
official list of the members of the House
for the Fiftieth Congress. He classi
fies them as K58 Democrats. 152 Repub
licans and 4 Indepenents, with one va
cancy to be filled, probably by a Repub
lic!.. One hundred and ninety-five of
the number are old members, being ten
more than the number of old members
in the present Congress. Of the old
members, 100 are Domocrats sind H5
Republicans. If the Independents di
vide, as they are expected to do, evenly
between the two sides, it will give the
Democrats a majority of fourteen in a
full House, which is large enough for
all practical purposes.
Meeting of CongntsH.
The short session of Congress which
commenced bust Monday will be princi
pally taken up with appropriation bills.
There will be, however, says the Au
gusta Chronicle, time for many sharp
passnges on numerous measures, al
though no important legislation may
go through. Members will be sure to
ventilate, pro and eon. the meaning of
the last elections. This will lead to a
sharp debate for campaigning purposes
later on. Though there is not much
time to waste between the first of Jan
uary and the fourth of March, oppor
tunities exist to do a great deal of good
or harm. We patiently await the is
j sues, and hope to make them as enter
i taining as possible to the public.

j*~ FromHhe Marion Star, oflast week,
I we clip the following:
"We have received a copy of a paper
j published in this State, which out of
i four pajres published at home, contains
four columns of reading matter-=the
other 20 columns filled up with adver
tisements. This is no doubt interest
ing to the publisher und editor- -fills
the pocket of the publisher, and. makes
work light for"the editor."
J Our contemporary is very much mis
j taken if it thinks that so short sighted
I a policy as it describes above will ever
j Jill an editor's pocket. There is but
one way to publish a successful news
paper, and that is to make it enterpris
ing and newsy. Cutting off! reading
matter to insert cheap advertisements
is a sure road to failure. People won't
take a paper that has nothing but ad
vertisements in it, and we don't blame
them. Our plan is to put in just as
much reading matter as possible and
charge a good price for advertising.
It has paid us and we suggest the same
to other publishers.

Dear Sir :?Being informed that it
is generally rumored that the young
men recently ill at your boarding school
were afllicted with scarlet fever, and
believing that if such a report should
gain public credence it would be detri
mental to your school, I feel it to be
my duty, and it certainly is a ple;isure,
to give a correct statement of the char
acter of the disease by which they were
attacked. It was a simple catarrhal
disorder of the throat which responded
promptly to treatment. It was in no
sense of the word a "contagious" disease.
You are authorized to make such use
of the above as will in your judgement
best subserve its purpose.
Very respectfully yours,

Seed Cotton Traffic.
Editor Times and Democrat : ?
It looks as if our members to the
Legislature does not intend paying.any
attention to the Grand Jury present
ment in regards the seed cotton traffic.
All honest farmers and merchants are
in favor of suppressing it. , Introduce a
bill,'gentleihen;'for its suppression, or
license it so high as to make it un
profitable, and if the bill is defeated let
us know who did it. Any man favor
ing the seed cotton traffic is no lit rep
resentative for the farmers and should
be left at home, and will be two years
hence, as that will be one of the ques
tions at issue. Reform: '

and say that they are in slavery its
much as they ever were before the war.
The law gives landlords the first lien
on the crop of renters. Merchants are

VISIT TO MINER'S HILL
ONE OF THE PLACES"CELEBRATED
IN THE HISTORY OF MORMONISM.
?Too Smith and His Bible?Dictating to an
Amnnnennifl?Ono of the Dupes?Cavo
on Miner's Hill ? Bringing Out the
On returning to the village of Palmyra
we visited another hill which is celebrated
in the annals of Mormon history. In
order that the reader may understand
the significance of this hill we must go
hack to Joe Smith and his bible. The
book, which, by the way, no one ever
saw, w?s said to consist of metal plates,
pierced on one edge, and fastened to
gether by rings which passed through the
holes. With the book was also found, or
so pretended, a huge pair of spectacles,
too large for any moptal eyes, whloh had
the remarkable quality of turning the
hieroglyphics on the metal plates into
Smith's scheme required the publica
tion of his bible. How was he to accomp
lish this? No one was allowed to see the
metal plates, and jet Smith could not
write a legible hand. An accomplice was
necessary. But Smith was equal to the
occasion. He engaged one Oliver Cow
dery, a school-teacher, to be his scribe,
promising him port of the proceeds of the
book. The Smiths were then living In a
little, one-story log house. There were
only two rooms on the ground floor, with
a pointed garret in the roof. Across one
corner of this garret Smith had a blanket
screen h trete bed. Behind this screen he
ensconced himself with his magic spec
tacles and his golden book (or, as Hussey
affirms, his tile brick). Cowdery sat on
the other side of the blanket and wrote
from Smith's dictation.
ONE OF THE DUPES.
Martin Harris, a wealthy farmer, was
Induced to bear the expense of printing
the manuscript. But Harris' wife was a
woman of too much good sense to be
Smith's dupe. So in the absence of her
husbnnd she put the manuscript In the
stove and burnt it up. Here was a check
in the proceeding, and one, too, that filled
Smith with dismay. He and Harris were
morally certain that Mrs. Harris had
taken the manuscript, but they did not
know it was burned. Smith was unable to
reproduce the book exactly, uud he feared
that the first manuscript would be pro
duced to confound him. However, it
wasn't a time to give up. He and his
friends repaired to Miner's hill by night,
aud there dug a s ivt of cave on the east
side of the hill. The dimensions of this
cave were forty feet deep, sixteen feet
wide, and seven feet high. The entrance
was secured by a substantial door of two
inch oak plank. In this dark care Smith
set about producing a new manuscript,
Cowdery ?tili acting as an amanuensis.
This copy was more securely guarded; it
is that from which the Mormon bible was
p rinted in 1899..' ?
Miner's hill is about two and a half
miles south of Palmyra. In appearance
H it similar to Mormon hill, and Uli? it
runs off to the south in a ridge. In the
days of Smith it was heavily wooded.
When we vi?ited the hill the timber hod
been cut down, and the whole was a
slashing filled with stumps, briers and
burrs. We had little difficulty In finding
what used to be the cave. It is situated
inst below the brow of the hllL Fifty-six
years, however, have left their ravages.
Instead of a cave we found quite a depres
sion where the earth had given way and
fallon in. The door had long since disap
peared. The door-frame, however, still
stands there, buried more than half the
wuy up in the earth. The frame is
roughly made, the sides not being mor
tised int'i the top, but simply secured by
three large spikes driven through each
end of the top piece. We took our knife
and cut off a piece of the wood. It was
as sound as when the frame was first
made. Hundreds of people, we were
tolil, annually visit Mormon hUl; but few
ever wend their way through the burrs
aud briers of Miner's hllL
PRINTED AT LAST.
After a good deal of demurring Mr.
Egbert B. Grandln, the publisher of The
Wayne Sentinel, contracted to do the
printing. An edition of 5,000 copies was
ordered. The price agreed upon was
$3,000. Harris pledging himself to pay
the moiK'y. It happened that at that time
the lending compositor in Mr. Grandin's
office was Mr. John H. Gilbert. Mr. Gil
bert, or, as he Is now called, MaJ. Gilbert,
Is to-day a hale man of 85 years. It was
our good fortune to meet him and have a
long talk about the early days of Mor
monism. He had the chief operative trust
of the typesetting and presswork He
got out the first form. There were In all
58S pa?es of the bible, and of these Gil
bert set up with his own hands over 500.
The original instructions were that no
alterations whatever from the copy were
to be mnde. But under Gilbert's earnest
protcstutions these instructions were re
scinded. Cowdery, though a tolerable
penman, was poor in syntax, orthography,
punctation. etc. The c*?py furnished him,
Mr. Gllhert assured us, was a solid mass.
There was no punctuation, very few
capitals, no paragraphs.
Joe Smith kept iu the background. Gil
bert only saw him twice?once In the of
fice for a few minutes and once on the
street Hyrum Smith, his brother,
brought the copy to the office every morn
ing, in installments of twenty-four pages,
buttoned up iu his vest, Hnd came foi
them at night. But after much friendly
expostulation Smith in about ten days re
la.\cd his vigilance, and permitted Gil
bert to take the manuscript home to cor
rect and punctuate. This was on Gil
bert's word that he would be responsible
for the copy. Grnndiii read most of the
proof: Gilbert re;>d the rest. The con
tract price of the printing was faithfully
paid by Harris. David Whitmer, whe
now lives in Richmond, Mo., has the
original manuscript. A man living ic
