The British Guinea.
*It is among the things generally
known that the guinea obtained its
name from the gold from which it
was made having been brought from
the Guinea coast by the African com
pany of traders. The first notice
of this god was in 1849, during the
commonwealth of England, when on
the 14th of April of that year the
garliament referred to,the council of
state a paper presented to the house
concerning the coinage, of gold
~brought in a ship lately come from
'Guiny" for the better advancing of
trade. But it was in the reign of
Charles II that the name was first
iven to this coin. It is among things
not generally known that when the
guinea was originally coined the in
tenton was to make it current as a
twenty shilling piece. but from an
error, or rather a series of errors.
We invite all to come
e convinced that it is

of the troops present at the recent
regular army and militia manoeuvres
left here at 2.30 p. m. yesterday when
a train pulled out carrying the sol
diers and animals whose duty it was
to stay to the end. The breaking up

Charleston. S. C.. Sept. i5.-Rela
tives and friends of those abroad the
6shing sloop "Gray Eagle." Capt.
William Simmons. now entertain
only-slight hopes of ever seeing the
ibers of the crew alive, it being
thought that some word would have
reached the city yesterday had the
boat weathered the gale which pre
vailed in this vicinity Tuesday after
noon and night. "Th. Dora." Capt.
Lunne Cross, with a crew of two
men besides the captain, is also be
lieved to have gone down as nothing
has been heard of her since she sail
ed out to the Southeast Banks Tues
The Big Ella" which was report
ed missing in The News and Courier
yesterday morning. came in early
yesterday morning with her storm
sails missing and her main torn to
tatters. On board the "Big Ella"
were three members of the crew 2f
"The Salem." which sloop anchored
near the Banks.
Capt. Aiken of the "Big Ella." was
seen by a reporter yesterday and in
zpeaking of the squall which tore his
storm sails away. said: "I went out
'o sea Tuesday moining and after we
ad gotten out near the Southeast
rRanks a squall arose and before we
1ould haul down the storm sails they
vere torn away and we had to close
reef the main sail and were driven
before the wind with a bare mast.
kbout 2 o'clock we sighted the 'Sa
lem.' and hoping to be able to get
some storm sails from them, we
headed their way and as we came
closer we saw that they were flying
a distress signal. We hove alongside
and asked if they had any sail. They
were in a worse plight than we were
and asked to be taken aboard. I had
six men on board and did not think
it would be safe to take the five men
from the Salem. About this time the
'Gray Eagle' came in sight and she
was signalled and was soon alongside.
Capt. Simmons said he would take
two of the men of the Salem. He did
so and I took the other three-Capt.
Prince Brand. Guy Johnson and
'Tom.' and we left the Salem anchor
ed. The Eagle went in a different di
rection from the course we pursued
and we soon lost sight of them. We
decided to come to the Stono and af
ter being out until about 3 o'clock
in the morning reached quiet water
and came in safely."

negro laborer at the C. M. Betts lum
ber mill, was knocked from the track
by A. C. L. passenger train due here

within a short time.
Coroner Flowers held an inquest
Sunday morning and the testimony
given by a negro woman, who was
the only eve witness of the accident,
and by others who had seen Sams
during the afternoon and early even
ings. satisfied the jury that Sam's
death was the result of his own care
lessness, due to drunkenness, and the
verdict returned was to that effect.
The woman said that she was walk
ing on the r/-oad track wvith Sams
and that when ther were near the
Betts mill village she heard a train
coming and got off the track.
Samis remained on the track and
she told him to get out of the way'
of the train. He refused to do so,
saying he was going to let the train
run over him. She grabbed his arm
to pull him out of the vsay of the
train, but before she could get him
clear of the track the train struck
him. He fell into the dlitch. where
he lay until she could run to the mill
village and call others to assist in
removing him. He was carried into
a house where he remained until he

THE STATESBORO AFFAIR.
It Seems That Soldiers Would Have
Done Their Duty Had It Not
Been For Officers.
Atlanta. Ga.. Sept. r5.-After re
ceiving and considering the full re
port of the Statesboro Court of In
quiry Governor Terrell has ordered
a courtmartial to decide as to wheth
er or not Capt. Hitch. Lieut. Mell,
Lieut. Griner, Lieut. Cone and
Lieut. Morrison were derelict in their'
duty during the recent trouble at
The report of the court of inquiry
amounts practically to an indictment
of the officers in charge of the troops
it Statesboro. Lieut. McIntyre was
the only commissioned officer ex
onerated by the court. Hsi action in
making an attempt to withstand the
mob and protect the prisoners is
praised by the court.
The report goes into detail. stat
ing that the evidence "failed to dis
close any energetic efforts on the
part of the military authorities to dis
nerse the mob and likewise failed to
disclose any serious casualties either
to the mob or military."
That part of the report relating to
Capt Hitch is as follows:
"That the force under Capt. Hitch
was sufficiently large to have afford
ed protection to the prisoners had
it been properly handled, but the
commanding officer did not use prop
er precautions, nor was his conduct
sufficiently energetic or forceful, he
having failed to avail himself of the
services of a large percentage of his
command which was within his reach
"The conclusion of the court is
that the troops could have taken the
prisoners from the mob, even after
they left the court house, had vigor
ous efforts been used instead of no
attempt at all."
The report refers to the fact that
the only instructions given the men
as to when to load and fire was that
given by Capt. Hitch on the train re
quiring them not to load or fire ex
cept when specinially instructed to do
so. "these instructions having the ef
iect generally of restraining the men
from loading their guns when at
tacked by the mob."
Two instances of soldiers loading
and threatening to shoot were re
ferred to when the desired effect was
had on the mob, as these two soldiers
held their ground, "thus furnishing
evidence of the effect on the mob of
