WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 138.
Wednesday morning the case of
Eliza Colclough charged with arson
was tried. Messrs. Galluchat & Als
brook represented the prisoner, and
Solicitor Wilson the State. The jury
brought in a wrdict of guilty with
recommendation to mercy. The pris
oner was sentenced to hard labor in
the penitentiary for ten years.
The Solicitor entered a nol. pros. in
case of Wmn. E. Brown, indicted for
PR1IMET oF GRAND JURY.
To Bis Honor J. J. Norton, Presiding
Judge for the February Term of
The Grand Jury drawn to serve
the present year respectfully reports
that they have acted upon the four
indictments given them by the Solic
itor, and found true bills in each
case. The county is to be congratu
lated that there is so little criminal
business before the court.
From what we have seen and has
been reported to us, we report the
roads throughout the county in a bad
condition, and recommend that im
mnediate attention be given them.
Everybody is directly interested in
good roads, and the people demand
them. Several bridges, too, are in
need of attention, and a little care
given at the proper time may save
the county a good many dollars. We
insist that our roads and bridges
should be kept in first-class condition.
We did not deem it best to examine
the books and records of the county
offices at this term of court, but will
do so some time during our term, by
a special committee consisting of J.
F. Cole, W. C. Beames, and K T.
Avant. We ask that your Honor ap
poin S. A. Nettles to assist this con
mittee as- expert.
We have examined the county jail,
nd find it in almost every respect in
secure:. the iron bars are too thin; the
Ieecs inferior; the walls of the cells
improperly nailed on; sash not sup
plied with glass,-but it is useless for
us to enumerate. We recommend that
the County Consmissioners prepare an
itemized estimate of what it will cost
to make this jail reasonably secure,
and present it to this Grand Jury for
their consideration at the next term
The Court-house, too, needs some
attention by way of repairs to doors,
ecure fastenings to doors and win
dows, etc. We recommend that the
County .Commissioners either have
.such of this work done as appears
-neeessary, or else, as above, report to
thisGrand Jury at the next term of
snake these repairs.
We visited the county poor house,
and find the buildings in good condi
tion, and the inmates apparently
properly supplied with fuel, food,- and
c 'ohin, except one inmate who is
almost destitute of decent clothing,
and another whose bed needs a new
tic'in. There are two inmates who
are sick andrin need of medical atten
tion, yet have had none.' The super
intendent is thus derelict in his duty.
Xe should be careful in this respect,
and when medical attention is neces
sary should at once call in the poor
house physician. There are nine in
mates, most of whom appear suitable
subjects for public charity, but two or
three of the inmates appear fully able
to work and to earn a support for
themselves. TLaziness should not be
encouraged. inmates to this institu
tion should be admitted with care,
andkepso long only as they are in
ofearning a iving.
hscome to our knowledge that
on the night of December 16th, 1888,
the Clerk of Court's offie and th~e
Conty Treasurer's offce were broken
into for the supposed purpose of rob
bing the county treasury, and it is re
ported that one Benjamin S. Dinkins
is the party who committed the deed.
It is also reported that no efforts have
been made to arrest the said D)inkins.
It seems to us that the officers inter
ested, the County Treasurer, the Clerk
of Court and the County Commis
sioniers, should have resisted this vio
lation of the law on property of which
they for the time were custodians, and
abouid have at once endeavored to
have the culprit arrested. But such
was-not done. It is further reported
that said Dinkins, about the first of
last December, also forged a draft for
a considerable sum on a Sumter Bank,
signing W. F. B. Haynsworth's name
to it,. and that the said draft was cash
ed by County Treasurer Huggins. We,
therefore, present the said Benjamin
S. Dinkins for housebreaking and for
gery, and give as witnesses, S. D.
Hurst, W. K. Ingram, F. N. Wilson,
James E. Davis, H. H. Huggins, D.
J. Bradham, Israel James, and Arod
We find upon investigation that
Ex-County Treasurer Huggins has not
yet made his settlement with the
County Auditor, even after having
been specially ordered to do so by the
Comptroller-General. Section 223 of
the General Statutes requires a Coun
tiy Treasurer to make a settlement
with the County Auditor within ten
days after his successor qualifies. A
longer time than this has elapsed, and
the settlement has not yet begun. We,
therefore, reluctantly, butin obedience
to our oath, present Ex-County Treas
urer K. K Huggins for non-compli
ance with the law, and recommend
that the proper legal measures be
taken in the premises. We give as
witnesses, Comptroller-General Vern
er, County Treasurer Sprott, and
County Auditor D. J. Bradham.

sufficient number of chairs to seat the

also that there is a lack of tables in
the Court House. We recommend
that there be supplied at once as many

A petition has been presented to us,
signed by thirty citizens of the coun

S. Harvin, which runs parallel for two
miles with the public road leading
from Jordan, Summerton, ar d other
places to Manning, is a nuisance to
public travel on that road, and asking
us to recommend to the County Com
missioners that they protect the coun
ty's interest by declaring said road a
public nuisance. We beg leave to re

Manning, S. C., Feb. 13, 1889.
The presentment of the Grand Jury
was disposed of as follows:
The Clerk of Court was instructed
to copy so much of the presentment
as refers to the public roads and
bridges, the court house, the poor
house, and the tram road of Messrs.
C. R. and W. S. Harvin, and servo the
same without delay on the chairman
of the Board of County Commission

The Clerk of Court was instructed
to issue a bench warrant for B. S.
Dinkins upon the charge of house
breaking and forgery.
There was little before the Court of
Common Pleas. The case of J. E.
Morris vs. Thos. Wilson, for damages,
resulted in a mistrial. This is the third
time this case has been tried: twice
resulting in a mistrial, and once hav
ing a new trial granted.
All other cases were continued.
Court adjourned sine die Thursday
The Camden correspondent of the
News and Courier, writing under date
of Feb. 5th says:
Judge Aldrich's charge to the grand jury
was elaborate and explicit, though not long.
In his charge he spoke of what he desig
nated as a nonsensical hue and cry of high
taxes, and the demagogic demand for reduc
tion in salaries. He said that such men did
not know what they were talking about. So
far as the State taxes are concerned, they are
not onerous, and as to the salaries paid
State, county and judicial officers, they are
not excessive. For example, a Circuit
Judge's salary is $3,500 per annum. He is
required to go over the whole State in the
discharge of his duties, pay his own ex
penses, &c. From his experience he had
found that it took every cent of $1,000 to go
around the different courts in three circuits
during the year. This left only $2,500 for
the maintenance of his family, and other
necssar exenses of a Judge's family.
woueac meanuon ms xamuiy antmig mis
absence, a Judge did not have many dollars
to lay up at the end of the year for a rainy
day. He then mentioned several instances
amiong State and county officials whose sal
aries barely gave them a living, and in some
eases did not do that; and said that if the
grumblers would turn their attention to the
expenses of th.eir counties, retrenchment
in some instances might be made. He cited
the fact that every county has a treasurer
and auditor, when one officer for these two
positiona combined would be enabled to at-.
tend to the duties appertaining thereto.
We perfectly agree witii Judge Al
drich in what he says coicerning the
attempt of the legislature to reduce
the salary of circuit judges,- and we
think it is at least a mooted question
whether or not the consolidation of
the offices of Auditor and Treasurer
in the several counties is feasible and
would be a proper proceeding from the
standpoint of economy. But we sub
mit that a grand jury is a singular
audience and a judge's charge a most
unusual vehicle for the publication of1
a political speech. When the orator
appears, as in this instance, as plain
tiff against the unwarranted attempts
of the law-making power to rob him
of his own hard-earned dollars,. the
scene loses all pretentions to good
taste, and would be actually indecent,
were it not so supremely ludicrous.
We must not laugh, however, for we
know.that the speaker is not Judge
Aldrlch, not the man whom in the
prime of his manhood and the vigor
of his intellect, this State delighted
to honor. The voice is that of a'weak
and querulous child. Let it bring
out sympathy, not our ridicule.
But this last exhibition of senility
on the part of one, whose public ca
reer should have closed years ago, re
minds us that the time is drawing on
apace when Judge Aldrich will be
called upon to administer justice in
this city again, and some things should
be said which we would prefer to leave
unsaid, and which have been suppress
ed so far for reasons that shall be giv
en. It is mockery, a travesty upon
justice, that this old and broken man
should be left in a position where his
duty requires him to sit in judgment
upon his fellow-man. We see that at
Camden he has been called on topas
sentence of death upon one man. In
all probability the senfence is just,
but what a risk is run! We do not
speak of Judge Aldrich as an individ
uaL We like him personally, and
look back with pride upon the time
when he could serve his State and did
so, manfully-when he was Speaker
of the House, and when he held other
high positions. But we speak for the
people, who, equally with ourselves,
love him for what he has been, and
say that it is dangerous to administer
justice through an aged and decrepit
man, the brightness of whose intellect
has faded into the latest afterglow of
a winter evening.
When Judge Aldrich last presided
in Sumter, his-conduct gave great of
fense to the people in more ways than
one. What that conduct wras, it is
needless to explain here. The city
member it. So great wasthe dissat
isfaction that the Watchman and South
ron was called on to suppress commu
nications strongly censuring His
Honor. This was not a transient
feeling, for at the next term of Court
the Grand Jury- proposed to incorpo
rate in its presentment the grounds of
complaint and recommend a remedy.
This came to the ears of Judge Press
ley, then presiding, and he, after vain
ly endeavoring, by the use of author
ity and persuasion, to prevail upon
the Grand Jury to forego their inten
tion, finally declared that, to his cer
tain knowledge, the resignation of
Judze Aldrich had been written, and
was in the hand of the proper par
ties; and that therefore the proposed
presentment could effect nothing.
Upon hearing this, the Grand Jury
very gladly said nothing. Of this res
ignation, if it ever existed, and the
character of Judge Pressley preclad- a
the idea that it never did, nothing has
since been heard.
Under these circumstances, is it
necessary for us to say that it will be
better for Judge Aldrich, for the peo
ple, for all concerned, that he shall
not again preside in Sumter?
Discusses Rich Folks, and Poor Folks,
and Their Ways.
Set down on this log along side of
me, Cousin Bill, and let us talk the
matter over. You look kinder sick
and sorter out of sorts. I almost know
what's the matter with you without
the telling of it. You are in trouble
about short crops and can't pay out
you say, and that is not the matter I
say, and there it is we agree so ex
aetly. Yes, I know what's making
you so sick and cross eyed, and I
know the medicine that will cure you.
You have been living this blessed
year beyond your means, playing the
rich man with a poor man's pocket
book, and there is the rub. You seem
to forget that the nigger is free, and
that there is no "high buckra" now;
that it is root hog or die with each
one of us in the great battle of life.
You can't make cotton and corn with
breakfast at 10 o'clock and dinner at
6 o'clock, nor mutton chops from rus
ty bacon, or cake from a corn dodger,
even if eaten from a three hundred
dollar silver service set that your
creditors can't touch. No sir-ree Bob
Dick, it can't be did, it won't wash no
how you fix it. I know you were
raised that way, and 'tis hard to
change, but old fellow you will have
to be raised out of that way, or soon
starve, a martyr to departed glory,
and I don't reckon you want it to
come to that do you? There is no
sentimental charity that is going to
feed you and family, and thus offer a
premium to idleness. No sir-ree. This
is a great big go-a-head world, and
"every tub must set on its own bot
tom." Yes, it is true as you say,
"that it looks like people that owned
niggers before the war are now' the
the bottom rail is really and truthful
ly on top." The farmer's condition is1
to be deplored, the latter commended
for they faced the results of the war
in the right spirit, went to work, and
by industry and frugality have acquir
ed a competence which they can hon
And again sweet William, I am
afraid you are putting too much reli
ance on your "big family name."
Now, just you quit that right off, for a
big name aint worth a pinch of snuff
against muscle and horse sense. So
vou s-ze by experience that a big name
by itself aint worth as much as a good
horse's pedigree. As for me I would
rather have a boot black's bank check
than all the big names in the State.
It is all nonsense, and the war played
it out. There is r.eally more suffer
ing from the lack of the comforts of
life among this class of our people
from this one cause than any other I
can conceive of. They are too proud
to work, ashamed to beg, and appear
too honest to steal; and the poorest
left handed sight I know of is a "poor
aristocrat." I am not blaming them,
am sorry, truly sorry for their condi
tion, and wish it were better. I see no
remedy except in enduring the pen
alty imposed on old grand father Adam
when he and grand mother Eve got to
eating them apples in the garden of
Eden. Ah! old folks. How much
trouble you have caused us in gratify
ing your appetite.
Then, again, unsophisticated Wil
liam my cousin, there may be a "black
sheep in every flock" and generally is,
if the records are carefully searched.
Now, for instance my great .great
grand father with his two brothers
came over to America from old Ire
land long, long time ago, and they
bore a big name too, but for all that,
they may have had to leave t-he old
country hurriedly and quickly at that
for eating some one else's mutton
that didn't belong to them; and* if
such was the case I ain't got much of
a big name to brag on. I know this
much about it, it has never gotten me
a loaf of bread or a nights lodging in
all my born days and consequently I
dont take much stock in anythingr
that pays no dividends.
Another thing, my lovely cousin,
notwithstanding your short crop last
year, you had to tramp all over the
county the last fall running for the
legislature. You look like a legisla
ture man! Indeed! Why man it takes
money to run that business, and that
you ain't got nor never had to spare.
You owe your tailor for your Sunday
clothes and your factor has a mort
gage on your farm and where in the
world would you have gotten the
money to run the machine if you had
been elected ? It was a blessing that
you were beaten and you might have
expected just that, als no man can be
a success in public life when his pri
vate efforts are first class failures.
There seems to be a pleasant delusion
among a great many of our young
that because their Daddies or some
one of their kin held office before the
war that they can just step in the old
folks' shoes and should have cfcc as
by right of inheritance, and scme of
the old folks thinks so too. Insane
ideas, fatal delusion, just such notions
as these, no doubt prompted your
oourse my unfortunate cousin.
What are you to do? There is a
plenty to do if you will only do it.
Pull of your coat, roll up your sleeves
and go to work. Be independent.
Don't for heaven sake be a dependent.
Live within your means and pay as
you go or don't go; and all will be
well with you yet.-Spectator.

An important innovation in pack
ing the cotton crop, relating mainly
to the size of the bales, was suggested
in the late Louisiana agricultural con
vention, and meets with great favor
among the farmers of that State. The
proposed plain is to reduce the bales
to about 150 pounds in weight, mak
ing them 14 by 16 inches thick and
three feet in length. The ordinary
gin house press can compress these
small bales to 30 pounds to the cubic
foot. The compresses only exceed
this by three pounds. Three wires
to be put around the bales and ovei
all a bag of osnaburgs. It is stated
that the expense of compressing (60
cents per bale) and of bagging and
ties, on the basis of a six million bale
crop, amounts to $10,000,000. It is
also stated that the spinner can only
utilize 80 per cent. of the cotton bales
now in use, whereas lie can utilize 95
per cent. of the proposed bales.

What is this Disease that is Coming
Like a thief at night it steals
in upon us unawares. The pa
tients have pains about the
chest and sides, and sometimes
in the back. They feel dull
and sleepy; the miouth has a
bad taste, especially in the
morning. A sort of sticky slime
collects about the teeth. The
appetite is poor. There is a
feeling like a heavy load on the
stomach; sometimes a faint, all
gone sensation at the pit of the
stomach which food does not
satisfy. The eyes are sunken,
the hands and feet become cold
and clammy. After a while a
cough sets in, at first dry, but
after a few months it is attend
ed with a greenish-colored ex
pectoration. The patient feels
tired all the while, and sleep
does not seem to afford any
rest. After a time he becomes
nervous, irritable and gloomy,
and has evil forebodings. There
is a giddiness, a sort of whirl
ing sensation in the head when
rising up suddenly. The bow
els become costive; the skin is
dry and hot at times; the blood
becomes thick and stagnant;
the whites of the eyes become
tinged with yellow; the urine
is scanty and high colored, de
positing a sediment after stand
ing. There is frequently a
spitting up of the food, some
tunes with a sour taste and
sometimes with a sweetish
taste; this is frequently at
tended with palpitation of the
heart; the vision becomes im'
paired, with spots before the
eyes; there is a feeling of great
prostration and weakness. All
of these symptoms are in turn
present. It is thought that
nearly one-third of our popu
lation has this disease in some
of its varied forms.
It has been found that phy
sicians have mistaken the cause
of this disease. Some have
treated it for a liver complaint,
others for kidney disease, etc.,
etc., but none of these kinds of
treatment have been attended
with success; for it is really
constipation and dyspepsia. It
