THE PRESIDENT ON THE WING.
The much talked of, and long pro
jected visit of President Cleveland
through the South West, has in reality
been entered upon and from news
paper reports of his progress, he is
meeting everywhere a perfect ovation,
and his speeches, storms of applause.
It is highly gratifying to witness
this triumphal march after the bercu
lean efforts on the part of croakers,
sore heads, and gangrened leaders of
the Grand Army of the Republic and
others from time to time to cast mud
upon him and bring his Administra
tion under reproach. It is calculated
to give confidence and cause us to
feel that there is still left in the old
-land yet, genuine patriotism and a
people willing, whatever way be their
peculiar differences, to give the palm
where justice, reason, and right pro
claims it due.
The grand rallying at every point
along his route and the scores of in
vitations froni Cities and Towns to
take them in, exhibits an earnestness
and zeal far beN ond idle curiosity;
but rather savoring of a desire, not
only to see our worthy Chief of the
Nation, but to demonstrate to him
and the Country, their just apprecia
tion of his manly and statesman like
efforts to reform abuses, and advance
in every way the material interest and
prosperity of the land; and for all
classes. This eloquent testimonial of
a peoples esteem and confidence, met
on every hand, have no doubt convin
ced the "old Hacks" of the Republican
party that something more striking
than the attenuated and thread-bare
"Confederate Flag" enormity must
be hatched with which to breast this
Alpine torrent. The astute and sol
emn visaged Chief did not forget or
neglect to carry along that "ray of
sunshine" from the White House
that first little lady of the Land, who
as he well knows, has captured every
heart coming witbin range of her
bewitching smiles. He very sensibly
recognized her as a potent factor in
his conquest. Like the great French
1mperor, who did not disdain to ac
knowledge that, while he gained victo
ries in the field, Josephine achieved
triumphs, no less important at home,
by winning friends and overcoming
enemies. We believe that, ere the
President complets his tour West
ward, the question as to "who will be
our next Chief Magistrate" will find
a ready answer.
YOUNG CHARLESTON TO THE FRONT.
The News and Courier publishes the
organization, quite recently, of the
young men of the city of Charleston
iato a Democratic club, the purpose
of which is, first, last, and all the time,
to exert themselves in behalf of the
city, and that city alone; but of genu
ine, "blue- stocking" Democratic priu
ciples, acting always under, and for
the welfare of the Party.
It is evident, from the zeal in which
they inaugurate matters, ibat it is not
designed to be a mere club house af
fair-an effervescence of the punch
bowl, but a patriotic ,endeavor to lift
the gallant and historic old "city by
the sea," up to its merited place among
the cities of our land. And having a
purpose most honorable, so much to
commend it to all and backed by the
g'outhful sibews of the place, in a uni
- .ted and enthusiastic effort, who will
.sttempt to prophecy that they will
-The undertaking may be assailed
.iby its opponents as a piece of politi
-cal machinery, and for the benefit and
sauvancement of certain men or fac
tions. We have more confidence in
the young men of Charleston than to
believe that they will ever suffer
themselves to be used as tools for any
pmrpose. But there is no valid reason
apparent, why a power so potent, as
.this organization, properly handled,
promises to be, khould not be weilded
-as a thunderbolt against anything that
wcomes in the way of progress to the
city, whether men or measures or give
a fostering agency to any worthy
cause. The warm and sanguine efforts
of the young men of the State have
helped the old ship over many shal
lows, and politicians need not become
The military review, inspection, and
parade of the military companies of
the county was an occasn to be re
membered in Manning. Early in the
day, horsemen in the State regulation
uniform began coming into town and
by twelve the streets were crowded
with these gallant gentlemen. They
made the largest military gathering
ever assembled in our town, and to
add to the interest and attractiveness
of the day, the Sumter colored brass
band were employed to be present to
furnish the Military music. This they
did well and to the satisfaction of all.
About three o'clock the companies
assembled on the square of the court
house to be inspected by the adjutant
general. The Connor Mounted Rifie
men numbered 30 men, .the Hampton
Light Dragoons 35, and the Manning
Guards 42. To the tune of a spirited
air from the band. Gen Bonham and'
his Staff, Maj. D>. B. Anderson and
Lieutenant DesChamps appeared on
the square on richly caparisoned'
horses, the admiration of all parties.
The inspection took place immediate
ly and was very creditable indeed to
the Clarendon military. At its con
clusion, Gen. Bonham made a brief
address to the companies. He spoke
of the increased interest aroused
among the people for the military, and
every effort to influence the Legisia- :
ture to make a large appropriation for
the military fund. The Generol was
very much pleased with tie appear
ance of our companies and flattered
them by referring to the complimen
tary report he would make of thenm
to Clarendon's Govenor Richardson.
Maj. Anderson being called upon
for a speach gracefully responded in
his usual happy style. His appropri
ate remarks were received with ap
Captain Briggs, of the Rifles, Cap
tain Brailsford, of the Dragoons, and
Captain Levi, of the Guards. won the
hearty congratulations of the large
crowd for the skill'ul manage
ment of their respecLive ecmmands.
Master Lucian Brailsford, on a mlag
nificent looking three year old colt,
the property of the captain of the
Dragoon-, wras the knightliest looking
knight of all the mounted calvarymen.
He completely won the smiles of all
the lovely ladies.
Mr. W. E. Davis, of the Riflemen,
exhilbited marvelous horsemanship ii
his management of a spirited firey
horse. The animal made viscious at
tempts to unseat biw, but to no pur
After the inspection the Guards
gave a dress parade before General
Bonham, which he pronounced fault
less. This command is determined
to sustain the enviable reputation
made for itself at the Smrtanburg
Encampment. Although one of the
youngest, the Guards rank among the
first companies of the State.
S. Wolkoviskie, of the palace saloon,
thoughtfully, and very generously,
furnished gratuitously, iced lemonade
for the men while undergoing inspec
tion. He has the unanimous tha.uks.
of all who enjoyed his bounty.
SKIRiMISH DI.LL, ETC.
[From the News c, Courier.]
Gen Borham drilled the Manning
Guaad.s to-night in the skimish drill
for about an hour, after which the
Guards and their guests retired to the
armory, where they went through the
cork drawing exerc.ise in a style that
would do credit to veterans. Speech-I
es were made by Gen Bonham, Maj.
C. S. Land, Maj. H. H. Lesesne, Maj.
Anderson and Capt Levi. The Guards
were organized in February last and
through the efforts of the noble ladies
of the town and our liberal hearted
merchant, Moses Levi, were uni
formed in June. The Guards attend
ed the Inter-State Encampment in
August, where they covered them
selves with glory, and to-day their
soldierly appearance and military
manmuvriug brought fourth the
applause of the many visitors present.

We have upon our desk the first
issue of "the Chatauquan" a magazue
devoted to the Educational interest
of the Country; having for its Editor
and Proprietor Mrs E. C. Nettles,
Alsbrook, formerly of our Town.
We congratulate Mrs. Alsbrook on
the neat and attractive appearance of
"the Chatauquan" and~ hope and
believe that it will meet with success.
It is very readable and instructive
to teachers and scholars, indeeed to
all, and well worth the small amount
of the subscription.
THE CITY OF THE SAND HILL..
Fuzcros, S. C,., October 1, 1887.
Want of facts or the requisite imagination
with which -'to point a moral or adorn a
tale," has enforced upon us a period of si
lence, wich, no doubt, many of the Trexs'
readers devoutly hoped would be perpetual.
The TL'rs, at present, is such an epitome
of literary excellence, replete with something
adapted to every class of its readers, that I
fear my efforts will be deemed empirical.
But the inspiration to say something, is
why we break our long silence. This in
spiration is heightened by this beautiful af
trnoon with its wealth of soft sunlight,
bathing the tops of the stately sycamores in
a floodtide of golden glory, laughing joyous

turesque by the hazy mist-the precurser of
Indian summer-that girdles the horrizon,

ere their emerald hue shall put on the garb
of richest carnation, orange, red, or crim

Ex-Governor Manning is homce. after a

has been longed for, and every one is gen

Apropos of the Governor, the papers; are
saying that he is the only ante belium govern

upon any of this distinguished line of pa
triots and statesmen, my high admiration
and veneration for Governor Manning, imii

such a galaxy again. Mr. J. W. Weoks, who
