THE MANIG TIMES.
Pulished Every Wednesday.
WEDNESDA1 J#N. 18 1888.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
The public has already been noti
fied of the fact that I have bcught the
MAiVmnG TIMEs. I purpose using my
best efforts to give the people of Clar
endon a readable newspaper, and shall
especially give attention to such mat
ters as most concern, or will most in
terest, the people of this county. I
have bought the Tags for the pur
pose of making money, and shall bear
in mind that people buy those things
that have merit and are needed.
S. A. NETTLES.
We are decidedly opposed to lynch
law. It savors of misrule, of lawless
ness, of anarchy, and it should not be
upheld or tolerated in any civilized
ommunity. We can see how that in
new communities, where, as it were,
every man's hand is against his neigh
bor, and the community itself is made
upof lawless persons, there may very
well exist "vigilance committees,"
which in themselves constitute prose
cutor, judge, jury, and executioner.
But we cannot see the need of such in
any-community containing a duly or
ganized court of justice. In the heat
of passion, when the blood runs hot,
is no time to judge and decide calmly
and carefully the merits of a case in
volving life and death, more especially
when, as in most of such cases, the
persons engaged in such an affair, con
sist of the least reliable portion of the
community. In almost every case the
law should be allowed to take its
course. If, however, such a case
- -should arise as to demand immediate
pnnishment-the community feels
that a fellow man's life must pay the
penalty of some infamous crime, then
let that community arise as one man,
in all.the strength and wisdom of its
oldest and best citizens, and in broad
= day light, with a full consciousness of
doing right, let the deed be done. We
doubt not but that many innocent
men are hanged by these self-consti
tuted regulators. Human life, it is
true, is held too cheap in South Caro
lina, but then whose fault is it? Is it
soi the fault of the people themselves?
Ts it the solicitor or the judge who
sals to do his duty? Is it not the
jury, ne from the same county as the
scused ? We repeat it that human
- life is held exceedingly cheap in this
State, but then the people themselves
are to blame. Whenever the juries
of South Carolina do their duty, it
will cease to be a reproach upon the
State that justice cannot be had.
And now the matter has come to a
critical point, and one that will cause
every sober-minded man to think it is
time to-call a halt. To our mind, the
recent lynching in Pickens was aclear
case of culpable official neglect, and
the. constable or' officer responsible
f1or starting alone at midnight, with a
prisoner charged 'with an inftmous
crime, and in the face of threats of
*lynching, ought to be held as an ac
~~~omplc. -True, the fellow lynched
- .fl''~acu~was a poor, worthless,
friendlessniim idf-giltyv of the
- crime charged, ought to have been,
and probably would have been, hang
- ed in due process of law~jstill the pre
cedent set is one that must do great
* harm, unless it can be stopped.
Lynch law has reached that point
* where it must cease, or throw us into
anarchy and ruin.
006D WEATHER ANDP PNiEUMONIA.
* Another cold wave has struck our
State, and it will tend largely to in
crease colds, bronchitis, and pneu
monia. Dr. Seibert states that hu
- midity, cold, and high wicnds are the
chief agents that promote the preva
lence of pneumonia. Going out into
and breathing the .cold air after occu
-pying heated and close rooms, espe
cially if there are prevailing at the
-time high winds charged with invisi
ble dust, the particles of which act as
..miechanical irritants on the lungs, will
tax any one's lungs, and in many
cases induce pneumonia or consump
tion. -Every one should be very care
ful this kind of weather. There are
comparatively few people in this coun
ty who have not been affected by the
severe'weather we have had for the
past five weeks. If when one first feels
---tat~h~sJ4ng old,_ he will at once
-take five grains of 'quinine,^it will in
-most cases obre the cold; and if in
the first stages of a cold, five grains
each of quinine and dovers powders
are-taken on going to bed, it wiflin
almost every case break up the cold.

The Louisiana State Democratic
convention has nominated Nichols for a
Governor. It adopted a platform en- c
dorsing Cleveland's admiiistration n
and urging his re-election; pledging 1
the party to economy in the State 1
administration; urging liberal appro
priations for public schools; inviting
immigration, and expressing opposi-a
tion to the employment of convict la
bor in competition with free labor.
Ex-Secretary Lamar was on last
Monday confirmed by the Senate by a
vote of 32 to 28, to be an Associate
Justice of the United States Supreme C
Court. The Republicans made des
perate efforts to defeat General La- 4
mar's nomination, because he was an r
ex-Confederate. It is hard, very hard i
for the Yankees to get over the war.
They cannot realize the fact that the e
South is again in the Union, and has a
equal rights with any and all other f
sections of the Union. e
The Pistol Defended.
The Sumter shooting has occasion
ed the chorus of condemnation of car
rying concealed weapons to be again
sung by most of the newspapers of
the State. There is a deluge of the
usual watery talk about "enforcing the
law against carrying concealed weap
ons." Some of these newspaper t
wrtters ought at once to be set about
the business of "enforcing" this so
called law. They would, no doubt,
achieve a brilliant success in the work.
It makes one tired to see so much
about "the cowardly practice of car- 1
rying concealed weapons." What ;
makes it cowardly- to carry a weapon
concealed or exposed? It is not cow
ardly, never has been, and never will
be, to do so. Cowardice can only be
justly chargeable in the use made of 1
the weapon. Not a few times has a e
man been too cowardly to use a weap- e
on when he had it; many a 3
time has one been too cowardly to r
use it effectively.
We do not approve of carrying con- t
cealed weapons. Ordinarily a pistol i:
in the pocket is a useless burden. .,
Strapping one about the body and e
strutting around with it at this day,
is much like Don Quixote's arminge
himself and going forth to battle
against the winidmill. But there are r'
timswben &istol at hand is a good t
tingto have; even in t-d.tadt
South Carolina during the closing C
years of the nineteenth century. At j
such times it is neither cowardly to y
carry one nor to use it, if it be well b
used. Had all the parties been armed c
at the Sumter affray, there would have a
been in all probability, results more
in accord with right and justice than
there were---perhaps, than there will
be. Judging from the testimony pub
lished, some of the shots there fired
were in the dastardly manner of the b
assassin sent on their murderous mis-g
sion. One man was shot at while sit- t1
ting unarmed upon a bench, and an- d
other was shot in the back. For this h
sort of deeds there is no excuse, no T
palliation; they mark the coward and ti
should receive the curse. la
The law against carrying concealed it
weapons is the worst on'the Statutes T
of South Carolina. It is practically e<
without sanction-the essential part st
of every law. It merely .places the C
law-abiding citizen at the mercy of wv
the outlaw. In every crowd of men ha
on a street corner there is probably te
one with a pistol in his pocket. How a<
shall the fact be known ? Shall men's
pockets be searched every day ? How fr
is the "law" to be "enforced ?' Where of
will be the protecting arm of the law bl
when the pistol is drawn to do its X
deadly work ? What did the bheriff th
f Sumter do when the firing began in ID
the justice's office ? What would, have fc
been the result if Geo. Johnstone had at
gone without his pistol the morning m
of the shooting for which he has been tv
eently tried ? The law has no right T]
to disarm one man that another may gC
shoot him with impunity. r
Are the people of South Carolina wl
children, that they must be disarmed cc
to prevent their doing mischief? d
Let us have less talk about the m
"cowardly practice of carrying con- vil
ealed weapons;" let us have a right- lei
eous punishment for the cowardly and Ml
urderous use of the weapon. It is ze
hero the law should and can be en- b
forced if proper effort is made.- Wil- in

For the next two months the pro- ne
eedings of Congress will be specially m

Too Much Sanctification.
COIXma, Jan. 15.-The Rev. W.
Shaw, a Baptist minister of Edge
eld has become a raving lunatic, and
>-day he cut his throat with a pocket
nife. He is a convert of the doctrine
f "sanctification," and his enthusiasm
n that subject unbalanced his mind.
Vhile Mrs. Shaw was attending a fu
eral Mr. Shaw procured a tub of wa

rayer. He then plunged the knife
ato his throat. The act was witness

Admission of States.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 8.-31r. Springer,
hairman of the committee on territo
ies, being interviewed to-day, said:
Very probably enabling acts will be
assed for some of the territories, that
, we may pass an act enabling some
f the territories to adopt State con
titutions, and to construct the ma
hinery of State governments prepar
tory to recognition as States. The
dmission of a new State is a very im
ortant matter, and cannot be done
n mere application or on any mere
rithmetical basis. An impression has
ot abroad that a territory must have
certain qualification to qualify it for
dmission. There is no law and no
ustom about it. The admission of a
ew State is entirely a matter of leg
>lative discretion. It is within the
ower of congress to erect No Man's
and into a State and admit it to
ie Union. The State of Illinois was
dmitted when it had less than 40,000
opulation. Dakota has over 600,000.
