The South Carolina Chautauquan for
April will contain a cabinet size por
trait of Mrs. Sallie F. Chapin, the
champion temperance worker of the
United States and a sketch of her life <
by Charles D. Fedder, D. D., of Char-1
leston,.S. C.; a thrilling chapter de
scribing the burning by Sherman's <
army of the city of Columbia; hints a
to teachers, and other interesting mat

The Tnes has had nothing to say
relative to the Democratic State Con- t
'vention meeting elsewhere than in
Columbia, simply because we did not
think there was any probability of a
change. Columbia is the most acces
sible and suitable place in the State,
and can be reached by the delegates
at least expense. The Tuns favors
elections every four years, and as the e
present State officers were nominated
only two years ago, favors but one
convention, at which all business may
be done, including a renomination of
the entire State ticket. It will be a
useless waste of time and money to
-have more than one convention.
Playing cards is a nuisance in this
place. It is a practice among rich s
and poor, white and black, week days P
and Sundays. We can not lay our t
bands on an; man, and of our own
knowledge say, "Thou art a gambler," 9
but there are those in authority who g
could easily make a raid on these C
dens, and catch them in the act. The n
poor ignorant negroes may be seen
by the dozen playing cards, and we c
would naturally infer gambling. n
White men, too, we are told are at it. f
Gambling is gambling whether a cigar
or a ten thousand dollar check is the
A lively lawsuit is albout to be in- h
stituted by a young Georgia editor c
bor the recovery of the town of Aiken, ai
the famous summer resort in this b
State. About seven hundred acres of e<
land in and around Aiken were bought b
.by the young man's grand father, Mr. st
.Beverly M. Rodgers,nmore to specu- p
late on than any thing else, years ago. a1
~When the old gentleman died his cl
business was very unsettled, and his ti
.children being small the matter was n;
iforgotten. However, an aunt ~of t<
:young Rodgers reminds him of the di
purchase, and he forthwith goes to fc
Aiken, employs Messrs. Hammond & T
Evan~s as-attorneys, and enters suit. ir
'There are four heirs to the esiate and
they will push the suit.
The police in Charleston recently oi
thought they had unearthed a big aj
thing, but the correspondent of the c<
Columbia Re'gister gives it another pl
"The readers of the Register will p:
recall the arrest of two colored women je
and the fmding of a large quantity of
silks and other dress goods in their
dwellings. It turns out that both the s
women are fashionable dressmakers, L
which will account for the miscellane- 3E
ons assortment of dress goods, jewel
ry, etc., found in the houses. The
dress goods were given to them by
their customers to make up into Eas- la
ter dresses, and the jewelry-well, it tc
is said that fashionable women will N
-'occsionally pawn a watch or a trinket T
to their dressmaker.
~At any rate, the arrest-of the two
dressmakers and the seizure of their tc
goods has caused a considerable stir. C

FrLToX, S. C., March 30, 1888.
r Mn. EIrroR-Dear Sir: I am re
ei'ing duns from you almost every
reek for some four years' subscription,
rhich I wish to inform you is not
orrect. I paid for one year in ad
ance. I also paid to Mr.
rhen collecting for the paper, $2.00,
or which I have a receipt, which of
ourse would leave a balance due you
f $1.00 up to the 29th March, '88.
she first time I go to your town I
will settle with you to date. But I
lislike to be dunned for something I
lo not owe. Yours, &c.,
We know it is not pleasant to be
uuned, but sometimes it is unavoid
ble. Soon after buying the Tims
ye sent to every subscriber who was
n arears a polite circular-letter stating
hen their subscription began, how
nuch money had been paid.. and how
auch was sill due. We asked that
is letter be given attention, and
yen if the party was unable to pay
he amount due, that he at least write
is stating whether the account was
orrect. We thought this a polite
equest and deserving an answer.
Che gentleman above however seems
o think differently. We do not of
ourse desire to lose a single subscrib
r, nor on the other hand, do we de
ire to send the Tnnms to any man
rho doesn't want it. Had the
bove letter been written us when we
ant out the first statement, it would
ave been more satisfactory to all
Raleigh's Bank Defalcators.
Raleigh, N. C., has had a great sen
ition and big steal by C. E. Cross,
resident, and S. L. White, cashier, of
ie State National Bank, who, after
usiness hours, Saturday, March 24,
ietly took all the cash they could
et together, and left for Canada.
Toss and White are each highly con
ected in church and society, and
,hen on Monday the news was pro
[aimed that they had absconded with
lore than $250,000 of the bank's
nds, the excitement was very great.
he parties reached Canada before
ie news became public, and it was
ared that Nothing could be done
ith them; but it was, a day or two
ter, discovered that both parties had
mmitteed forgery before leaving,
2d that for this offence they could
a arrested and returned to the Unit
I States. When White and Cross
acame aware of this feature of the
eal, they telegraphed to the chief of
>lice of Raleigh to come for them
id they would return with him. The
ief of police has gone for the par
es, and very probable North Caroli
justice for stealing will be equal
putting both of these high toned
~falators in the State Penitentiary
r a reasonably short space of time.
be bank's loss will probably be not
ore than $60,000 or $75,000.

Edward A. Rhame.
Edward A. Rhame died near At
lanta, March 31, of acute pleuro pneu
Mr. Rhame was feeling slightly un
well on the night of Sunday, the 25th
March, keeping in doors and in bed
most of the time on Monday follow
ing; on Tuesday he did not feel any
better, something worse, having a
very severe cough, yet having no ap
prehension that his attack was of a
serious nature; but on Wednesday
having grown worse, a physician was
called in who told him that he had
pneumonia. !r. R~lane did not then
seem to apprehend danger, but on
Thursday the 29th. wrote his brother,
Senator J. F. Rhaue. a letter, written
in pencil, in which he stated that his
attack was of a serious nature; this
letter reached Senator Rhame the
night of Friday, the 30th, also on the
same night he received a telegram in
forming him that his brother was very
ill. Senator Rhame made hurried
preparations to leave for Atlanta, and
through the courtesy of the railroad
authorities the conductor of the
through night freight was instructed
to stop for him. Reaching Snmter in
time for the fast mail train going to
Columbia, he hastened to Atlanta,
which place he reached on the after
noon of the 31st, a little after sunset.
On stepping from the train he was told
the sad news that his brother had died
about 7 o'clock that morning. Imme
diate arrangements for the embalming
of his body and transportation of it
to South Carolina were made. As
soon as Senator Rhame got the tele
gram announcing his brother's illness,
he at once sent one in reply stating
that he would leave for Atlanta on
the first train, but from some inexcu
sable negligence somewhere, this tele
gram was never delivered.
Mr. Rhame was at times delirious,
but most of the time was conscious.
About fifteen or twenty minutes be
fore death he called for paper and
pencil, and making the attendants
hold him up, wrote with his trembling
hands these pathetic words as a dy
ing message to the loved ones at home:
"I remain the same, God bless-"
The almost pulseless hand refused to
do more, and the message, together
with some short messages previously
written, were by his direction enclos
ed n an envelope, by a frieLd at his
bed-side,addressed to Senator Rhame,
and immediately mailed. These en
closures reached here Sunday night.
Mr. Rhame told the attendants at his
bed-aide that he knew his brother
would come, and to tell him that he
did not wish to be buried among
strangers, but desired his body to be
laid near the grave of his father.
This wish was carried out to the
letter. His body arrived at Lynch
burg Sunday night; a number of
friends were in waiting at the depot
to receive it.
On Monday at 11 o'clock after the
performance by Rev. Mr. Mattison of
the beautiful burial service of the
Methodist church, in the Presbyterian
church at Lynchburg, his body was
nterred in the cemetery of the l.st
amed church, close to the grave of
is father, whom he loved so well.
A large number of friends, and all
f his near r'elatives who could get
here, attended the burial. It was a
great satisfaction to his relatives to
ind that his featurc s were undisturbed
y the agonies of death; so serenet
ndeed were they, that one could
scarcely realize but that he was
Mr Rhame was a son of the late
Co1. John C. Rhame and of Mrs. Mar

five brothers, and a sister survive him.
r. Rhame had spent the greater
art of his life with his brother, Sena
