The President's message is one <
the clearest expositions of the subje<
of tariff revenue we have ever seen. .
is different from all other messages i
that it treats .of only one subject-ti
financial condition of the Union, bot
present and prospective. To any d
siring a full and intelligent knowleda
of that important matter of revenu
taxation, which will eventually becon
the leading principle or plank in ti
Democratic platform, we refer thea
to this message of President Clev
The Secretary of War in his annul
report states that on the entire Atlar
tic and Gulf coast, a line of 2,870 mile
and the northern frontier, 2,530 mile
the sole protection of the governmet
against foreign invasion, is an arms
ment of 142 rifled guns, of which 11
are obsolete and of very low powe:
The large surplus lying idle in th
united States treasury, would make
almost perfect the navy and coast de
fences of this country.
The militia of the several State
stand a good chance now of enjoyin
in the near future a short camp lii
under the supervision of the nationf
government. Gen. Sheridan, in h
report which is approved by the Se<
zetary of War, recommends all poss
ble aid by the General Governmer
to the NatioDal Guards of the differ
ent States and suggests a system <
national encampments for State mil
tie at the entire expense of the ni
tional government. If these recon
nmendations are carried out our gallar
soldier boys, under the tutel oe
Uncle Sam's" blue coated o cer
would get a taste of soldier life the
would make them better soldiers c
at least better citizens.
The message of the President con
tains this valuable statistical informs
tionof the laboring classes of the cour
:There are 17,392,099 of our pop
-ation engaged in all kinds of indui
Ides; 7,670,493 are employed in agr
euIture, 4,074,238 in professional an
;. ersonal services, (2,974,876 of who!
domestic servants and laborers:

ansportation, and 3,837,112 are class

iin such mnanufacturing industries, th

12benefited b~y a high tarif.
We are glad to note that the effor
to cut off a part of Clarendon Count
to form anew county with parts o
mVliamshorg, Darlington, and Marioi
counties, has been vetoed by the Sen
ate. Smallecounties always suffer wit]
hihtaxation. The smaller the coun
ty the higher comparatively the taxei
are. Every county corporation how
..-ver small, must necessarily have th<
same number of officers and the sam<
government as larger- counties. Clar
endon county has not one inch o
ground to spare and for every dollar'i
*worth of property taken from her ter
.titory the taxes will be increased jus
*that much. But it is the inste desir<
of every citizen of Clarendon to d<
.full justice, brother to brother, and i
the projected lopping off of part a
Motts township will benefit our fellov
eitizens affected by it, all will agree t<
give up to their wishes. It is no
likely, however, that the citizens o:
Motts township will be in any bette.
*condition by allying themselves witi
another people. They are on this sid<
of Lynches River, and will neces-saril'
have to cross it in going to their pro
posed county-seat. This river is of
?ten affected by freshets and is some
times impassable, and at these time:
they will be entirely shut off fron
communication with their interests
This is, in our opinion, a very grav<
objection to the new county so far as
it affects Clarendon. There are other
and weightier objections that could be
urged, but a letter received from our
senator says that the matter has beer
-iman for the present term of the
General Assembly. In order that th4
readers of the Tnurs may appreciate
the position of our Representatives or
the new county move, we take the lib.
erty of publishing a part of this lettei
which is private. The reasons givez
therein are the best and must strik<
every one as just and proper. Mr
"To the bill introduced by Senato:
Byrd, to form a new county out o
portions of Darlington, Marion, Wil
liamsburg, and Clarendon, Messrs
Tindal, Plowden, and myself preparei
and fied with the senate judieia
committee to whom the bill had bee2
referred, a statement of our objection
to the bill, prominent amqng whici
were the objections that their ha<
been no su~rvey nor map of the part c
our county proposed to be cut off. an<
the area th er e of and c
the remainder - was uncertain
also that in no event was it just o
proper to dismember or divide thi
county, without first having submittei
he matter to a vote of the people i
hat part of the .cony proposed t
be cut ofl so that it may be ascertain
ed beyond a caoubt that the chang
was desired by at least a majority c
"What effect this protest on ou
part hna withthe committaa. I dn nol
% of course, know; but it has just made
t a report adversely to the proposed
- new county to be called "Bee," and
the report has been adopted by the
senate, and the measure is therefore
killed for the session.
"I will add that this bill is not con
nected with the proposed measure to
form the new county of Florence,
which will come up for discussion in
>f the senate, having already passed the
t house, next Wednesday."
e The Manning (Clarendon) Times thinking
that there is a conflict between the Confed
erate pension scheme and the home, prefers
the former. The one is the supplement of
e the otier.
e The Clinton (Laurens) Enterprise takes
e the same ground as the Times.
e At the time the article referred to
n by the Register was written, no bill
on the subject had been introduced in
either House of the General Assembly
and our purpose was to show the ad
vantage of a pension to destitute Con
federate soldiers over the proposed
"Home." Our, people . have alwaxs
been united in the desire to do some
thing for the worn out veterans and
't only the way and the means have been
'vanting. A pension alone without
6 the Home will, in our judgment, do
more good and be more economical.
e But very few, not one in a hundred
e deserving pensioners, would voluntari
ly accept assistance through the
Home. Throw the money for the es
tablishment of the House in the pen
s sion pot, and swell that as large as
d The annual message of the Presid
a ent was published in Congress on the
morning of December 6th. On the
- following day, the 7th, the American
it papers not only contained the mes
- sage but the opinion of several of the
English press on it. The lengthy doc
L- ument was received in the "old world,"
put through the printers mill and ed
torial criticisms of the English press
t secured and published in the United
f States, all in less than 15 hours.
, The generation of 50 years ago nev
er dreamed of the attainments and
r achievements of this age; and the
history of the past teaches us that our
present progress in invention and dis
. covery will be regarded in the 19th
century the infancy of the sciences..
It is, however, beyond the scope of
_ the present mind to conceive how fa
ture discoveries can improve the next
generation of newspapers. This
science, at least seems to be at its
I A Holiday Jubilee at Panola on Thurs
day the 29th.
Notwithstanding the happy descrip
- tion given of the gala occasion for Pan
- ola on the 29th by our Ponola contri
L butor we must add a word in the way
of doing something for the success of
the fistivities. Our Panola fiiends
S areambitious and patriotic. With
hard labor and at great cost they have
- built a first class academy which is a
- great honor and benefit to their com
I munity. This building has been all
paid for with the exception of about
a $175, and now the laborers and pro
moters of the projected carnival ex
pect to liquidate by this means the
t debt on their academy. The purpose
ris so praiseworthy that the patronage1
f is bound to be generous; but apart
i from this the merits of the Christmas
- jubilee, the attractive programme, are
ibound to draw crowds and crowds of
- people to Panola on the 29th. The
first and greatest inducement will be
- the presence of Governor Richardson
and the pleasure of listening to one of
his eloquent speeches. He has been
-invited, accepted the invitation, and
f will be there. And as another induce
Sment we have the authority for stat
.ing that Hon. John J. Dargan, of
aSumter, and CoL B. Pressley Barron
Swill both be present and deliver ad
,dresses. Col Rice, the superintendent
of education will not attend as stated
by "Panola." A late letter from him
rcontains his regrets that he has other 1
>engagements. Next, and by no means
the last attraction of the day, the
Sthree military companies of the coun
ty will be inspected by Governor
Richardson. The Guards have ac
cepted an invitation through Captain
Levi from Captain Brailsford of the
Dragoons. This feature of the enter
tainment to all who love the military
and enjoy seeing our soldiers in their
brilliant uniforms, will aford abundant
pleasure. A band will be on hand
and its martial strains will enthuse
every one with life, vivacity, and ani
mation. -A boundless Xmas boaid
will be spread unsurpassed by a Sar
atoga feast. Everybody cordially in
vited and all will be royally entertain
PANOLA CHIT CHAT.
Pasot~a, December 7, 1887.
lb. Enron: An apology is always out of
place, especially where duty makes the first
demand. We are really so isolated and cut
toff from the outside world, our only mode of
communication being through our old friend
Dority, this ought to create much sympathy
for us. Our Hon. Senator opens .'mne new
light; another new railroad project. The
Wilson and summerton Railroad is beyond
doubt a good undertaking and an enterprise
that will pay a handsomne profit. If this line
passes through the-Panola section the mate
rial value to be gained by shipments, war
Irant the conclusion that to estimite its im
portance to this section of Clarendon, it can
only be realized by its completion. Will
the road be. built? Will Sumimerton suffer
Sit to fall asleep and be content to simply
1 hoist its flag ? No. but let Summerton and
Panola with a stuborn will unite in this no
ble enterprise and help with might to fur
ther its designs. There is a growing future
for this Panola section. Nothing in my mind
will tend to elevate our surroundings, en
-hance wealth, build our people up in such a.
condition of prosperity, as a railroad, good'
schools, and churches; to th'ese two latter

of every child the opportunity of a common

The course of instruction embracing ten years, is designed to'furnish a lib
eral education suited to the ordinary vocations of life, or to fit students for
the Freshman, Sophomore, or Junior class of colleges.
PLAN OF INSTRUCTION.
The most approved text books are used. The blackboard is deemed an
essential in the class room. The meaning of an author is invariably required
of each pupil. In all work done, in whatever department, and whatever the
extent of ground covered, our motto shall always be Thoroughness. To
this end, we shall require that every lesson be learted, if not in time for the
class recitation, then elsewhere. No real progress can be made so long as
the pupil is allowed to go on from day to day reciting only half-perfect lessons

W E DESIRE ESPECTIALTLT TO URGE UPON PARENTS AND)
Guardians the great importance of having their children at school
promptly the first day. The student who enters late labors under serious
disadvantages, and seldom takes that stand in his class that otherwise he
would have taken.
The Principal feels much encouraged at the hearty support given the
school heretofore, and promises renewed efforts to make the school what it
should be-FIRST CLASS in every respect.
