THE MANNINMG TIME
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2, 1887.
B. $. DINKINS, Editor.
Captain Tillman's letter to the
Mos and Courier replying to the re
cent letter of Senator Youmans is pub
lished to-dy. Captain Tillman is a
bold writer with conspicuous powers
of argument. Unfortunately, however
be lets his temper and animus towards
those he believes to be his eneries,
run away with his common sense.
Consequently his letters are so filled
with abuse and contemptible insiuna
tions, that really the sensible argu
ments contained in his letters are lost
sight- of' If anything he is fearless.
He has the temerity to say in his re
ply to Colonel Youmans, "that the an
imus of my letter was not against the
agricultural Solons.' for whom I only
felt pity and contempt, but against the
eleven lawyers, who knew nothing
about. the merits of the matter, and
who should have deferred to the opin
ions and wishes-of the farmers outside
of the Senate" * * *. The eleven
lawyers are his sworn enemies, -and at
every opportunity the vials of his
wrath are opened on their uncovered
heads. The Captain is an ungenerous
enemy. Pity never penetrates his ad
mantine breast. Blow after blow he
aims- at the lawyers. He pummels
pounds, and pummels, hard, bard,
hard, and although the suffering law
yers never attempt to retaliate by
striking back, still the Captain as ve
hemently and unmercifully hammer,
away. He is a cruel valiant man, oi
else his attacks, like the hanging rub
ber-bag before the stripped boxer, re
bound, and he has to keep continually
banging or else be prostrated by thE
rebound force of his attack.
It is to be regretted that the Barn
well senator allowed himself to fall ir
the wake of Captain Tillman, and like
him indulge in- inexcusable "nu
throwing" and open abuse.
South Carolina is receiving her full
share of the annoyances 6f the "Holi
ness Ambassadors," who represent i
distinct body of Northern religionists
whose tenets are opposed to the xist
ing order of religion as represented ii
the protestant church. Greenville wa

made a number of converts among the
ignorant whites and co~lored people
'when it was discovered that the Holi
ness gentikmen were blaspheming the
ministers of the churches, preaching
against the government, and poison'
ing the minds of the negroes. Ther
it occurred to the good people of Col
umbia that the "holiness apostles'
were representatives of political aboli
tionists. The ministers, both color
ed and white, held a meeting and de
nounced their teachings. Mob treat
ment afterwards was effective in inc
ing them to find another field of oper

The address of Captain F. W. Daw
son, before the association of the Ma
ryland Line, in Baltimore, on the
evening of the 22nd of February, is a
valuable contribution to the history of
the South. With the subject, "Our
Women of the War," he related in
impetuous language the noble part
the women of our Southland took in
supporting the struggle for independ
ance. Their trials and horrible suf
ferings; instances of persecution a-nd
scenes of savage ferocity, inflicted by
the Northern foe, were graphically
told in pathetic words. The speech
was an eloquent, tribute to the virtue,
patriotism, and sublime heroism of
the women of the South. It will live
in history the grandest eulogy to wo
man on record.
The greater part of the southern
portion of Europe has recently been
visited by an earthquake of great
strength. In portions of Italy and
South France the shocks were even
more severe and the damage done
greater than the memorable Charles
ton shake of the 31st of August. Over
two thousand persons were killed, and
thousands wounded. .t Nice, the
Italian Reviera, Montrose, Monaco
Bajardo, Bussana, the destruction o
life and property was appalling. In
the village of Bajardo, which is a small
town of 1,500, at the first shock, the
inhabitants rushed in mad affright tt
the parish church where upon their
knees they implored protection. The
priests were moving among the terri
fied people trying in vain to caln
their fears, when suddenly a seconi
shoek caused the massive walls of tht
bu:lding to fall in, burying beneath it
ruins several hundred people.
A partial description of the disas
trous calamity is published on th<
fourth page of this paper.

.WAsarsTOro, Feb. 2G, 1887.
The week's work in Congress can be read
i1y epitomized. The Senate gave its consen

Rivers and Harbors, add voted away mzi
lions by passing a number of bilis for th
increase of the Navy. Tlie House of Repr<
sentatives has devoted most of the timet
discussion of the money bill's which ru
this Government, and which invariably pr<
v oke debate and which must be disposed<
before the 4th of March, otherwise an exti
session would be necessary.
eBoth the Senate and House again passe
the Anti..Polygamy bill, this time as it cam
amended from conference, and the nieasur
Iis now ready for the Prcsident to make it
law by affixing his name.
3i There was an interesting debate over thi
question. Senator Vest said that, as a ma
ter of course, the bill would become a lav
aware what the public sentiment of tle cour
'try was. - but no amount of criticism woul
effect the performance as his duties as a let
islator. In his judgment it violated a pril
ciple of the Constitution, as to the rights<
property. He considered its provision a
.to the Perpetual Emigratirg Fund Compana
simple-, nakted, bold confiscation, and nott
C 'ing else. It took money subscribed by ir
.dividuals and applied it to an object (publi
schools) not contemplated by the corport
tion. The same thing might be done in rt
igrd to any other religious corporation 1:
this country. It was no answer tc say thec
tit applied only to the Mormon church.
The Senator said he recollected the~ tim
when in tehis country, a storm of popola
madness threatened to destroy the Roma:
Catholic Church, with all its rights of' proI
erty, and when it was preached from th
pulpit and hustings that that church was or
posed to a republican fomt of yovernmien1
-that it taught treason, that it should be' abo:
ished and its property con'iscated to th
treasury of the United States.
Another feature of the bill which he coul.
not support was the test oath imp~osed upo:
voters and pr'rons selected to olice. lU
-knew soumetir~fg aboutf test oaths, he ha
gone through an era of prescription on a<
Scount of them.
f Seator Edmozunds eeniel that any prine
pe of the Constitution in respect to tb
rights of prope rty were violated in this bil
ad as to test oaths, he said they. h ta bee

spectable although it inight be erronious,
and condemned by one's jiIgment. "Bat."
said he, "it is not the Mornron religion that
is attacked in this bill, it is the practice of
Polygamy, which is one of the tenets of a cer
tain proportion of that church."
Other Senators spoke in opposition to the
bill, among them being Senators Call. of i
Florida, and Butler. of south Carolina. Both
of them disclaixmt'd all toleration of polyga
my, but they could not suppcrt the propos
ed means of getting rid of it.

A Wedding at Foreston.
FonEsroN, February 25th, 1887.
Mr. Editor. On Sur' ,ay last it was an
nounced from the pulpit of the Meth
odist Church, that on Wednesday the
25th instant at 4 o'clock p. m., Mr.
Charles A. Porter and Miss Martha
Meekin, all of Foreston, would be
joined in holy wedlock, and the friends
and congregation were cordially invit
ed to be present
Early on the day appointed friends
from the country began to arrive; the
up train at 3.30, p. in., brought in a
large addition. The MIethodist church
was handsomely decorated with ever
greens, interwoven with flowers; a
large arch in front of the chancel with
a cross resting on top reaching the
ceiling and a good luck horse shoe
suspended under the cross all of ever
greens intertwined with flowers. A
pair of double gates were plac -d in
each aisle, two seats back from the
chancel. The organ was placed in the
rear of the church. The blinds were
closed and the lamps lighted which
showed off the decorations and re
sented a scene of loveliness.
At 4 p. m. the church was filled to
its utmost capacity; the seats inside
the gates were occupied by the friends
and invited guests of the expectant
biide and groom.
At 4.10 p. m Master Smith Land,
and Miss Anna Meekin, and 'Master
Geo. Hudgins and 'Miss Janey Land,
arrived in a carriage followed by the
bride and groom.
On entering the church Iiss Dora
Land took her place at the organ and
played the wedding march, continuing
throughout the whole ceremony. The
bridal party entered the church and
i passed up the ais'es to the gates
. which were thlrown wide open to re
cieve them. The bride and groom
advanced in front of the chancel, when
the Rev. J. S. Porter stepped forward
- and made them one, 'till death shall
part. The bride and groom after lin
gering a few mbments and receiving
the congratulations of their numerous
friends, drove to the residence of Capt.
P. P. Meekin and thence to Mr. J. C.
I Land's, their future abode. The young
people of the town called during the
evening to pay their respects and from
whtreport says, lingered rather long,
it being the early hour in the mnorning
- before they could make an excuse to
-The little folks not wishing to be
outdone by the larger ones assembled
at Captain~P. P. 31ekin's, and like the
older ones, remained till their mamas
,became anxious and sent the nurse
i for them.
It was a day long to be remember
ed. Even the old folks wore smiles on
their countenences, many of them, no
doubt, looking back years ago, when
they were young.

d'isusion of a topic just now one of the
nine days' wonders of the age. One of the
most vigorous and searching contributions
to the I'rish question yet published is that
by J. Parker Smith entitled "The Causes of
the Union with Ireland.'' Helen McKerlie
ives us a vigorous protest in favor of her
ex and its intellectual claims in "The Low

Linton is represented by a clear and reada

Other articles of interest are "Paganism in
Old England," by J. Theodore Bent, a char
acteristically brigt~t and scholarly paper by
s Max Muller, and an exceedingly suggestive,
though somewhat pessimistic article, called
"An Alexandrian Age." The entire contents
of the number will, we think, be found of
e great attraction.
