Court convened last Monday morning
Judge Aldrich on the bench. In addressin
the Grand Jury, he began by paying a higl
tribute to the memory of Dr. Jno. I. In
gram. He said but little on the duties o
the grand jury. He advocated the restore
ion of the whipping post for certain offenses
saying that with the large majority of col
ored people, the penitentiary produced it
them no fear or disgrace, for generally th<
biggest men and greatest heroes amons
them were those who had served a term it
the penitentiary. He said that the oni3
way to reach a negro's conscienc<
was through his hide, therefore he advocat
ed that for trivial offenses, petit larcen3
and such things, the wipping post shouli
Only one case was tried in the court of
sessions: Richard Proctor, colored, charget
with housebreaking and larceny; guilty
one year in the penitentiary. The peti

PRESENTMENT OF GRAND JURY.
To is Honor, A. P Aldrich, 'in
judge, Court of General &ssions for arendoi
Cowity, May 2erm, 1888:
The Committee of the Grand Jury, ap
'ited at the last term of the Court o:
eral Sessions for this County, whicl
were instructed to take under consideration
the report of the Grand Jury for 1887, anc
examine into the charges preferred in saic
report, and the statements therein made
beg, . most respectfully, to submit to th
Bonorable Court this their report:
The investigation of the committee ex
tended from the 21st to the 24th of March
They were assisted by W. L. Bass, Esq., o1
Kingstree, whose services asan expert the]
had secured to aid them in making this
The Committee, in making this investi
gation, have endeavored to keep promi
nently before them the fact that they rep
resent not individuals but their county
and thathowever much pity or sympath3
may have attempted to wean them from an
unwelcome task, they knew full well that
their government demanded the strictesi
, impartiality and the fullest justice, keeping
this in view, and having a full sense of the
r bility and obligations which thei
oaths they have taken impose upon them,
they have attempted to discharge this un
pleasant duty in accordance with the obli
gmoons of their oaths, their government's
eouamads and their own sense of right and
justice. The conclusions reached, and the
facts found, are as follows:
L The Committee fnds that in the year
1887 only $169.75 was collected from liquor
licenses, when $200 should have been col.
looted,. as there were two bar-rooms in the
town during that year. They fnd that this
difference was occasioned by the payment
if . Schwarts of only a part of the sum re.
'r by law. Therefore they ptesent the
Bo of CountyCommissioners for 1887 for
failing and neglecting to institute proceed

Conyers, on January 2, 1886,. gave W!. D.

opo which is hereto annexed and

.. Conyers gave K1 -ev a draft' en the
Treasurer for the sum of $144.25. and an
aamgnment to said K1 Levi of his efaims
aginst the County for services as School
Commisioner to the amount of $144.25, a
copy of which draft and assignment i6
hereto annexed, and marked "B." The
amount of both these drafts were ordered
by the School Commissioner to be, charged
to the account of the School Commissioner's
salary. This shows that during the fiscal
ear 1884-1885, and on the account of the
School Commissioner's salary for that year,
there was paid the sum of $894.25, $38 to S.
J. Bowman, and $861.25 to J. J. Conyern
and others by his orders. No notice is
made of'sither the draft of $50 or the draft
and assignment of $144.25, in either the
Trasurer's or School Comimissioner's re
ports; neither does any mention of either

tink that that paper should have been paid
by the Treasurer, as itis not addressed to
any one. No voucher for this check ap.

eCmieethinks that it is the inten
tion of the law that the School Commis
sioner shall have a voucher for every cheek,
draft, or warrant he issues from his office,
and that without such voucher he has no
authority to order the payment o~f money to
any person whomsoever. The Committee
also finds that School Commissioner J. J.
Conyers approved and ordered paid, and
that the Treasurer paid, quite a large- num.
br of school warrants which had been ex
amned and approved by only one mme
of the Board of Trustees. This should noi

The School Commissioner should be comn

system of dispen - the school funds.

IX. The Committee finds that in the fis
cal year 1884-1885 the Treasurer paid school
warrants to the amount of $763.75 for which
he has nevet received any credit on the
School Commissioner's book, but the School
Commissioner has carried forward all bal
ances, including the above amount, charg.
ing the Treasurer with the same, except a
balance of $90.69 which was not carried for
ward by the School Commissioner in the
fiscal year 1884-1885, and has never been
charged against the Treasurer. A list of
the warrants so paid as above mentioned is
t hereto annexed and marked "D." Also im
1885-1886 the Treasurer paid school claim
of W. J. Conyers for $8, for which he has
never received credit on the School Com
missioner's book. Furthermore, in fisca)
year 1884-1885, the Treasurer paid on school
claims for District No 9 $16.45 in excess of

X. The Committe presents that the
books of the Ex-Auditor, J. E. Scott, are in
the exact condition as represented by the
former Grand Jury; that he, the said J. E.
Scott, has never completed his original du
plicate of the year 1885-1886 ; that all of his
auditor's duplicates as far back as 1880 are
incomplete ; that upon these books no total
tax has been entered at all ; that the foot
ings of the columns, and a large part of the
work is in pencil, contrary to the direct
printed instructions of the Comptroller
General; that he has failed to record in
their proper places, viz, in the back of Aud
itor's and Treasurer's duplicates, any of the
additionals issued by him; and that no rec
ord of additionals can be found in the au
ditor's office. Witnesses: W. E. Stoney, D.

The Grand Jury respectfully reports that
they have adopted as their presentment at
this term the foregoing report of this com
mittee. H. C. CARRIGAN, Foreman.
At the end of the reading, the judge com
plimented the grand jury on the great care
and diligence shown by them in this re
port, and said that an order would at once
be issued for the parties, presented in the
report, to show cause at the next term of
court, why they should not be indie d.
He stated that while he believed the ocers
presented had exhibited great carelessness
in the conduct of their official business, he
did not suppose any one of them was crim
The only cases heard in the court of com
mon pleas were three appeals from trial

Summerton Wants the Railroads.
Ms. Erron:-Iam puzzled to understand
the oscillating manner in which Maj. B. C.
Barkeley, president of the Eutawville Rail
road talks. Sometimes hke says the road
will run one route, acid other times he says
it will run another, hence, I am surprised
at his lack of decision.
Let me review the cause of his last deter
rination to run the road towards Mr. D.
1'evi's, and from thence to the neighbor
hood of Panola. The agent at Wrights
Bluff says that Mr. D. Levi ships about
1700 bales of cotton, and Mr. J. P. Brock
about 475 bales. Now about one third of
these amounts are bought, and at prices
that they feel (where there is no competi
tion) they can best pay. Of course, if we
were in these gentlemen's places we would
do the same, and would threaten to ship
everything by any other route than theirs,
unless they should so run their road as to
completely block out cotton buyers. This
route will do it, and result in the Steam
boat Co. reaping the benefit. Besides the
above amounts, Mr.. . Levi ships about
500 bales, and nearly the whole amount is
'd for in cash, without competition in
No I'argue, that .to run the road by
Summerton you would immediately concen
tae and develop a business that
makes Summerton a town, and assures a
:cottn buyer; then instead of hundreds of
bales of cotton, and hundreds of dollars go
ing to Samter, the distance cof 23 miles, (and
the people deriving a benefit notwithstand
ingthe distance,) all would he brought to
Sumz2herton. Then Mr. Levi wvould be com
pelled to come to Sumimerton, for his hon
or wold force him to receive cotton where
there was competition, if his leiluors insist
ed that they could realize better pricgs.
Mr. Breck would do the same, andi Mr. M.
Leviwould be compelled to have some bus
inss there too, and why? Because Man
ning gets a tremendous support from this
secton,and no sooner than the road reach
ed Summerten, Manning would lose it, and
Mr. Levi would also lose it, unless he made
some arrangement to catch it; and who is it
that knows him would for once doubt his
having-a hand in the Summerton business ?
therefore it would be far more profitable to
the road to run this route, and far more
beneficial to the community.
I can see the same spirit of opposition
to Summerto'n, that keeps a cotton buyer
from Manning, and who are the sufferers?
Why every man who has cotton to sell, and
goods to buy.
Instead of every one working -for these
roads which will develop our county, each
man has a hope of a town being built at his
door. Can we scatter little stations all about
and build ttp any of them? Yet we see, incour
immagination,.a little town on the Eutaw
vile Re. R. about one mi-le from Mr. D. Levi's
store called "Leviton," and about one mile
further, another called "Brockton," and as
we stand at "Badgerville" near Sumimerton,
and look down the Wilson Road about one
mile we will see on the road running by
Mr. W.W. Benbow's a beautiful town called
*M. Leviton." But suppose the depots are
brought together in Sumumerton, then there
will be no chance for the imnaginatien, real
ity will burst upon our vision, necesity will
force immediate incorporation, and a beau
tiful little town springs up in one of the
mot prosperous sections in the State, and
the result is, that the roads are profited,
Fand the community benefited. Where
would you find a healthier place, and
a more desirable place for people to
move to from-cities than Summerton ? yet
we find men who are building railroads
jumping and- dodging from one point to
another, telling every one they meet that
L~the road is soon to go by his house, try.
ing to fool everybody, and please everybody,
without making a single effort themselves
~ to examine into the country, or without ask
ing themselves why? Is it that merchants
sscattered about this section prefertheir run
ning the road anywhere ratherthan to Sum.
. merton ? and why is it that those who live
n Manning,- and those who sympathise
ewith Manning, only pray that the road masy
miss Summerten ? It is because a business
Iwill immediately spring up that-will put

About the Payment of Pensions.
Bethlehem, Clarendon Co., S. C.,
May 11, 1888.
Hon. Jos. H. Earle, Att'y Gen'l,
Columbia, S. C.
Dry Sm:-I notice by our county paper
that "the checks for the April payments o1
Confederate pensiohs of the State are in the
posession of the clerks of edurt;" to be deliv
ered and paid by the treasurer only on
the personal application of the respective pen
sioners." I will here premise by saying,
that I am sure the intention of the "Pen
sion Board" was to facilitate the disburse
ment of this fund, in the absence of an ap
propriation by the Legislature for its dis.
bursement, and I can very well anticipate the
difficulties your Board labored under in
this respect; but it appears to me that the
ends sought will be at great hardship and
expense to the parties this fund is intended
to benefit. The mere fact that each Pen.
sioner is required to go to his or her counts
seat in person each month to get payment,
no matter the distance nor the physical or
financial ability of the party to get there, is
in itself sufficient to negative this mode of
disbursement. A great majority of these
Pensioners are extremely indigent, with no
money or mode of conveyance to getto their
respective county seats: others again are
physically unable, and it would be too
much to rely upon the- assistance and char.
ity of friends or relatives for aid in this re
I can very well conceive that the object
sought in this manner of disbursement, was
to be sure that the persons to whom the funds be
longed should receive it and no other, and your
Board should be commended for attempt
ing to carry out the evident intention of
this beneficiary enactment.
Permit me to respectfully suggest that
the following mode of payment be adopted,
applicable with the May disbursement, as I
apprehend that the April payment has al
ready been disposed of as above indicated:
when the May payment is to be made, send each
pensioner, to his or her P. 0. address, (which
your Board already has,) a cheek for $4.50,
reserving the 50 cents for postage, etc.,for the re
mainder of thefiscal year, leaving it to the ensu
ing session of the Legislature to provide for this
as well as other years' disbursement, which if
done the 50 cents thus reserved can be re
turned to the pensioners in a future pay
ment. I am' aware there may be legal ob
jections existing against this plan, but I ap
prehend they could be obviated. The
mode proposed would enable the pension
ers to receive their monthly stipends
promptly at the end of each month,
these checks they could have cashed in
their neighborhoods, or get the necessities
of life at cash prices, and thus carry out in
the eleemosynary intention of the Legis
I have the honor, General, to be

Picnic at Panola.
P~oora, May 14.-Last Saturday was a
day long to be remembered by the young,
old, and courting folks of this section.
Your correspondent accompanied by a most
charming companion set out about 1la. x.,
in a regular old fashioned jog, in a winding
pine woods road, for Flood's mill (followed
by two carriages ladened-one literally pack
ed like sardines-gith the most beautiful
young ladies it has ever been our good for
tune to behold,) to attend the Panola High
It is utterly impossible to give an accurate
description of this most enjoyable affair.
Though old Sol's face was sometimes hid
den by hornless clouds, there seemed to be
sunshine every-where. Swamp birds of
rare and variegated plumage perched here
and there in the abundant and verdant
foliage (forming, as it were, a green
wall betwixt mill-dam and sky)
warbled their Mreetest notes. The
mill-pond frogs were in full concert also
with their various chants, trying to call up
a gentle spring shower to wet the beautiful
array of spring dresses of the most beauti
ful lot of young ladies who have ever per
ambulated these picturesque picnic
grounds. Now and then you hear
the sudden deep mellow bass
voice of the bull-frog as he goes out from
the turbid pool, bellow and stretch across
for a more private habitation to the opposite
banks of the stream.
The boys though numerically weak, were
equal to the emergency. You could see a
fellow either with his own, or some -other
fellow's sweet heart, strolling, boat-riding,
dancing or seated in groups of twos. Oc
' ioal~ he would say something-then
she'd smile-then he'd smile, and then both
would laugh. Mr. Editor, if a girl's face is
an index to her soul the boys did their
whole duty, for they were much pleased
we mean the girl s. John Washington,
leader of the Panola string-bend, furnished
the music in the mill house. It was rather
warm for dancing, but John's waltzes were
just too irresistible, so in due time gallant
young men and lovely maidens were
threading the mazes of the waltz,
" Which to thy more melting tune,
Baw Irish jig, and ancient rigadoon,
Scotch reels avaunt; and country dance,
Your future claims to each fantastic toe"
Next approaches the hour for dinner.
"Oh! hour of all hours, the most blest
upon earth; blessed hour of our dinner."
The Panola matrons with Capt. D. W.
Bralsford's assistance can set up some of
the most magnificent dinners that it has
ever been our good luck to assault. Suffice
it to say, that this was one of their best. A
baked gobbler confronted us on our first
charge, and we commenced and finished
our dinner right there.
Privateer, Packsville, Hodges Corner,
Fulton, Calvary, Friendship, and Summer
ton were well represented. About 6 P. x.
the picnickers packed for home. We re-.
turned via Hickory Hill, Big Branch, and
Panola. The River road from Flood's mill
to Hickory Hill was once the prettiest road
in the County. We regretted to see that
the most beautiful section had been com
pletely denuded of its natural beauty, in
order to give more sun-shine to King Cotton.
But at the same time w~e noted- with pleas
ure the wonderful agricultural improve
ments made in th'is same section in a few
years. Crops, though young, looked well.
We have al':ays thought that Clarendon
farmers plaint-cotton too late, and lose con
siderable thereby, but a loss that's never
known never hurts.
Our homeward journey was, if anything,
more enjoyable than the picnic,--the beau
tiful landscapes, the delightful evening
breezes, the level hard clay roads, the glow
ing sunset. There was scarcely any twi
light here. The day star sinks apparent
ly into the Santee swamp; a blood red or
orange colored flag hangs like a signal for
a moment from his western tower ! is then
suddenly withdrawn, leaving in place only
a dusky streamer, which suddenly disap
pears within the tents of night. .The gray
of twilight thickens magically into dark
ness. But we were unusually fortunate on
this jaunt. We were under the enchanting
influence of a Ray that we trust twill never
fade. A Ray that did not set with the sun,
but was transformed into a brilliant star,
which continued to illuminate our Fiendly
hearts to our journey's end.
The remainder of the evening, with a
half dozen or more picnickers was most de
lightfully spent in the charming and hos
pitable family circle of our neighbor, Hon.
James E. Tinidal.
Misses Sudie Furman of Sumter Co., and
Amanda Paisley of k'la., and a few of the
Panola and Summerton Gentry, added to the
enjoyment of the evening.
We feel specially indebted to Misses Ahie
Bea, Gertrude Hauck, and May Tindal for
some very sweet instrumental and vocal
rusic,-recitations. &c. OCCASION~AL.
