constables in that section, among them
keing Mr. T. G. Williams of Newberry.
At the term of court there last week
the grand jury complimented the con tables
on their work. For the crime
of selling whiskey the Spartanburg
courts are convicting and sending to
the chairigang white men as well as
colored. Constable Williams ana

single conviction for the violation of
the liquor laws. There was a large
array of both white and colored offenders.
Before sentencing tne prisoners
Judge Peurifoy stated that under
the new prohibition law he could
impose no other than a chaingang
sentence, and added, in his opinion,
"when the law places chaingang
stripes on a man for selling whiskey
ttoE-n the law lias gone a long way
fc stamping out the whiskey traffic/'
The judge also told each prisoner that
&e time is coming when the good
people of South Carolina will put
down the whiskey traffic, and warned
every one of his hearers that this time
is rapidly approaching.
BY AX AMENDMENT
Governor is to /Appoint Regents and
These to Elect Superintendent
Among the eight constitutional
amendments to be submitted to the
people of the general election Tuesday,
the. one only of Statewide interest
is that which relates to the State
Hospital for the Insane. It is proposed
that the regents shall he appointed
by the governor and that the
regents shall elect the superintendent,
"who shall have authority to appoint
his staff. The amendment is
set out in full on page 594, 29 statutes
and in No. 3s3, laws, .1915. Heretofore
the governor has apointed both
the regents and the superintendent.
Returns Still Insufficient to Predict
Complexion of Body.
Returns were insufficient to indicate
what would be the complexion
of congress. However, the Republicans
gained two senators, one in
New York and one in Maine, elected
last September, and the indication?
were that they would gain at least
three more, two in Indiana and one
te New Jersey. To gain control of
the senate the Republicans must win
nine seats besides holding their own.
Although Republican party leaders
predict that the Democratic majority
of 23 in the present house would be
wiped out, the early returns showed
a net gain of one for the Republicans,
through the defeat of McGillicuddy In
Maine last September. They gained
two in New York, but this was offset
by a Democratic gain of one in North
Carolina and one in Pennsylvania.
Democratic party leaders insisted
that control of the house had not been
lost and that the senate would remain
Democratic. Republican leaders
claimed the house and were hopeful
of the senate.
In the house the Republicans gain
ed one in the Sixth Maryland and
another In the Eighteenth New York.
This brought the Det gain of the Republicans
to three. There were more
than 200 districts to be heard from.
Late returns still indicated that the
Democrats would lose three senators,
two in Indiana and one in Maryland.
'The result was in doubt in Ohio, West
Virginia and Nevada, seats held by

were claiming success for Hitchcock

The Democratic managers made a
positive claim of 264 electoral votes,
or two less than enough to win. The

THE JEW8 IX SOUTH CABOLIXA]
Contributed to Southern Christian Advocate.
Few realize how interesting is the
! history of the Jews in South Caro
lina or what a vital part tiiey have I
taken in our history. Many people |
carelessly lump all Jews as self-seek-!
ing small tradesmen engaged in sell- j
ing "coats from Dakota, vest from
Vest Virginia, and shoes from Shurusalem"
to unsophisticated rustics by
gathering up the spare material in
the .back witii tht assurance that "it

Philadelphia; 1905) a worthy contrij
bution to our history, the reading of

ideas. Few races can show such a
Large proportion of distinguished
names. Ornaments not only to the
Jewish race, but to mankind, as Sarah
Bernhardt, Heine, Spinoza, Mendelssohn,
George Brandeis and Judge
Brandeis, Karl Marx and Lasalle, the
socialist economist, Zamenhoff, the inventer
of Espera-nta, Felix Adler, Dr.
Ehrlich, the discoverer of salvaisan,
or "666"," Hoffkine, the discoverer of
inoculation against bubonic plaguu.
Mendeleiff the discoverer of "periodic
law" in chemistery, Lilienthal, the
first man to fly. Max Nordau, Michelson
the measurer of the velocity of
light. Bergson, the most eminent of
contemporary philosophers, Neander,
the great theologian and Church historian,
Disraeli (de-Israel-i) the orai
tor and statesman, not to mention a
long line of financiers from Baron
Rothchild and Jacob 9fchi?f down.
There are two distinct bodies of
Jews in South Carolina. There are,
first, the older groiip, in many inx
stances going back as South Carolina
ians before the Revolution. They
I came generally from England, whose
| free institutions and iumane laws afI
forded an opportunity for the Hebrew
to develop the roble possibilities of
his nature, which were so often beaten
into obscurity by persecution in
other lands. The Jews of England
were largely of Spanish ancestry, ana
to some extent Portuguese; and the
Spanish Jews havq been notable for
, centuries as emineht for intelligence,
fine appearance and attainments.
Other stocks of Jews have ishown
i great worth of ability, which are not
i reflected upon at all by remarking
. unnn this interesting and unusual con
nectian between South Carolina and
, Spain. The names of many of our
.older South Carolina Jewish families
; proclaim their Spanish (or sometimes
Portuguese) ancestry, as e. g., Aguilarf
Avila, Hvededo, Carhalho, Depaz,
j Gutteras, De Mendes, Cardozo, Corl
"tissoz. DeCosta, De La Motta, De
! Leon, De Palacacios, De Vega, Lopez,
j Lindo, Marques, Melhado, Molina, 01|
ivera, Ottolingui, Pimento, Pinto, Pix|
ieto, Prado, Rodriguez, Salvador, Sar1
Zed as, Saspostas,- Suares and Torres.
( The second bory of Jews consists
of more recent immigrants, largely
from Germany first, but later from
Poland and Russia. The latter have
been beaten down for centuries and
bear yet the marks of their sufferings.
The different stocks differ markedly
in face, fonn, features, suggesting
that there must have been some appreciable
intermingling with the back-,
ward, Slav, the stalwart German, or
J rtie nroud. lithe Spaniard.
j In 1800 and for eometime after the
i Jews of South Carolina, then almost all
J in Charleston, were the most numerj
ous, cultured, and wealthy Jewish
i community in the United States.
I There were about 2,500 in the entire
'country at that time, a mere handful
| to the 2,935,000 today out of the thir|
teen and a quarter million Jews of
| the whole world. Every fourtn perj
son in the city of New York today is
[a Jew. One-thirteenth of all ' the
; Jews of all the world are there, a larger
number of Jews than ever in human
history have been congregated
in one :>lace. I
Not only did the movement for the
intellectual and spiritual emancipation
of American Jews from mediae- J
valisf in thought and religion orig- j
mate in Charleston, but from this j
State came also many scientific and j
intellectual leaders. Dr. Simon Baruch,
after leaving Camden for a wider
opportunity of practive In the
North, diagnosed the first case of appendicitis

York Academy of Medicine of placing

eral Jews were among South Carolina's
most gifted ante-bellum writers,
as Ludwig Wewlssohn is among
t^ose of today. Barhamville, tUe
celebrated school for young ladies
near Columbia, was conducted by
Dr. Elias Marks, a Jew converted in
childhood, it is said, by his old negro
nurse. Jacob N. Cardozo, editor for
many years of "Tne souinern 1mtriot,"
was one of the staunchest defenders
of Southern rights. Judah
P. Benjamin, Attorney-General of the
Confederacy, and the holder at times
of other positions in President Davis'
cabinet, and later a leader of the English
bar, was a Jew of humblest origin,
part of whose boyhood was spent
in Charleston. "The brains of the
Confederacy," he was sometimes called;
and James G. Blaine characterized
him as "the Mephistopheles of the
Rebellion, the brilliant, learned, sinister
Secretary of Stale." "Moses anCr

TTw Secession convention paseeu

One of The Sentinel's old subscribers
j came in recently to renew his subscription,
and in the course of conversation
remarked that he couldn't see
how some folks got along without
their county paper. He said lie had
j heard some folks say they "couldn't
! afford to take a newspaper." He said
j if times got so hard in Pickens county
| that he couldn't take his home paper
j lie would certainly move to some more
! prosperous county, though he said
that would be a hard matter to do.
The Sentinel is the home newspaper of
Pickens county and you cannot afford
to 'be without it. It is still one dollar
