in the Soutb.
These so-called Independents have
less claim-in South Carolina for good

orous for place. The history of the
lRepulican party since 1876 is not a
pleasant one; it is wonderful that it pos
sesses an organization to-day, for in
stead of common-sense rules being ap
plied.to.strengthte$ it, a series of exper

and excellent-intention of dividing the
Democratie. vote, but which have re
sulted only in further discouraging Re

arguments against any recognition of

AN UNLUCKY VALENTINE.
Which Estranged Father and Daughter
For Fifty Years.
BELVIDERE, N. J.;;March' 26.:--James
Martin, a well-to-do farmer living at
Ballietville. Penn., died a few days ago.
leaving a will by which he disinherited
his only daughter, the result of a disa
greemuent 50 years ago.
It was a few days before St. Valen
tine's Day in-1839 when his daughter,
then 15.vears old, asked her father for
a ne;ivdresh,4 ;which .he refused to-buy
for her. The girl was quick tempered
and took her father's refusal much to
heart On St. Valentine's Day Farmer
Martin took from the postoffice a valen
tine addressed to him in his daughter's
handwriting. It was a rough carica
ture. representing a miser counting and
gloating over his money. He at once
took his daughierto task for what he
considered an insult, but she denied
sending it. -There lived in the neighbor
hood another farmer who treated a
niece living with him very brutally.
Martin's daughter said that they had
each purchased a valentine, and that
she had bought one entitled "The Hon
est Farmer" for him, while th'e niece
had purchased the caricature to send to
her uncle, and that in addressing them
the envelopes became mixed.
But, in spite of all explanations Farmer
Martin would not believe his daughter,
and from that day on he never
spoke to her. She soon married and
lived on a farm adjoining her father's,
and although he was on the most fami
liar terms with her husband and children,
still he never noticed her. He died last
week, leaving an estate valued at $45,000.
By his will he lefthis aged widow $30,000,
and to his son in-law the remainder,
provided he survived his wife, the
farmer's daughter If the son-in-law
died first, then the money was to he di
vided among his three children. To his
daughter Farmer Martin bequeathed "a
package to be found in his trunk, tied
with a green ribbon and sealed with

THE STRUGGLE FOR SPOILS.
Postmasters not to be Discharged For
WASHINGToN, March 26.-Congress
man Thomas of Wisconsin has been
trying to get a Presidential postmaster
removed on a charge of offensive parti
sanship, and Postmaster General Wana
maker told him that he and the Presi
dent had been talking the matter over
and agreed that an efficient- Postmaster
was not to be removed merely for parti
sanship. Senator Wilson of Iowa went
to Mr. Wanamaker for the removal of
another partisan postmaster. Although
it was shown him that the offender was
the editor of a Democratic newspaper
and had abused the Republicans all
through the campaign, Mr. Wana
maker would not consent to his removal
unless it were. shown that he managed
his postofce iadlf. i : .
But The politicians ty not wholly dis
coraged. Senator Wilson and the rest
of the Iowa delegation will go to the
Postmaster General with another ease of
an offensively partisan postmaster, and
ask him to reconsider his last decisions
and go back to the policy promisged by
his appointment of Congressman Pay
son's candidate at Pontiac, III.
There is nothing in the pretended plan
to ut ttoneyGeneral Miller on the
Sre e Bc so that Noble can get
into the Bureau of Justice and John S.
Clarkson into the Interior. No- doubt

is quite willing to go up stairs, but Mr.

regarded in Indiana~ and elsewhere
nearly as an ideal appointment.

THE I1VERP AD FAKIR F01ENTING RACE
TRtBLES ~1N LOUISIANA.
He Tells the Shreveport Negroes They
Are Oppressed-He Also Pockets All
Their Cash-Remarkable Influence of
an Ex'pert in Humbuging.
NEw ORLEANs, March 25.-Shreveport
the leading town of North Louisiana,
has been excited for some time past
with possibilities of race trouble grow
ing out f lipver". ads. Liver "pads are
the only subjeet of conversation on the
streets to-day, and the Stafe, city, and
parish authorities, backed by the unani
mous press and the white people of that
section, have sworn to drive the liver
pads and their vendor, "Yellowstone
Kit," from the town.
Kit is well known from one end of the
cotton country to the other. Traveling
through it.as a fakir and-- a vendor of
liver pads and popular medicines, he has
made both reputation and fortune
among the negroes. He pitches his tent,
a big cie, too, in some Southern city,
gives a free circus, minstrels, music and
all that, makes speeches to the negroes,
and then sells his pads to them by the
thousand. In this way he has accumu
lated in a few years a large fortune.
He claims to be worth -$5,000,000, wears
the purest diamonds in the South, and
has made himself the idol of the ne
groes. It is impossible to over-estimate
the admiration they feel for him. He
is regarded by many of them as their
Messiah, the man who not only can cure
their ills by his medicines, but who is
destined to lead them to new freedom
His influence with them was well
shown in the great prohibition election
in Atlanta, Ga., a year ago. Both the
prohibitionists and the "antis" bid for
his support, and every inducement was
offered him to come out on either side,
but he kept silent on the subject until
the very night before the election. Then
he burst forth to the thousands of ne
groes present with a short but strong
speech against prohibition. He is a
vigorous speaker before a black audi
ence, and he settled the election. The
negroes voted solidly against prohibition
and drowned it; and every one in At
lanta admitted that to Yellowstone Kit
the result was due.
Such is the man who opened his tent
in Shreveport a couple of weeks ago,
gave his usual free show with some
theatre performers, made speeches to
the negroes, and sold his liver pads. The
show soon acquired an even greater
notoriety than Kit had bargained for.
He is a strong advocate of "the right of
the negro," and in his speeches
usually touches on this subject. He
went a little further than usual in
that line in Shreveport, and
declared that the negroes were be
ing ill-treated, defrauded, and perse
cuted by the -whites. The coloredpeople
are in aniajorityin Shreveport and the
neighboring country, and there has
always been some offishness there on the
race question. Kit's speech caused some
little alarm and was denounced as in
cendiary by the press. He replied with
a-stronger one, -and the white people
then became much alarmed lest he might
stir up trouble with the negroes, while
the latter got the idea that some harm
was about to be done to their Messiah
and became boisterous.
Thus the race feeling grew more bitter
andmitense.: It was tinally decided to
get rid of Kit on the charge that he was
a nuisance;. that he had violated the li
cense law, &c., and he was arrested and
taken before the court, charged with a
number of offenses. It was then seen
that the situation was really serious.
The negroes flocked to his as'sistance by
thousands, and expressed a strong de
sire to release-hun fromn arrdst by vio
leii~e.'fid he& giien' thd word or en
couraged them a .sernous race riot would
He'taw the result; jeiraded the ne
groes to be quiet, and went to court and
bonded himself by paying down his
bond in cash, for he could get no white
man to go his seenrity.
By thislime all parties were excited
by. the -affair. The episode had only
made Kit dearer ta4ie negroes, giving
*them grcater confidee in him, and ad
verted-hibi through al- the country
a~rondShreveport For every dollar of
business he had done before, he
now did ten, selling .from 8500
to $1,000 worth of his mediciacs
a day. The negroes flocked into Shreve
port from the surroun~ding country;
tn.ws always crowded with thousands
of persons, andhis speeches followed
each other in rapid succession Yellow
stone Kit is to-day the idol of the North
Louisiana negroes, and tens of thous
ands of them would do to-morro.w what
ever he told them to do. Says a Shreve
port paper on this subject:
"If Abraham Lincoln could rise from
the grave tb-day the niegroes of Caddo
Parish would not regard him with more
blind idolatry than that which they be
stow upon this fakir who, under the
forms of law, is robbing them of their
There has been genuine alarm ever
since over ths subject, The whites de
care that the negroes have become ag
gressive and turbulent.
So far Kit has stuck to his post,I
although the situation has been growing
more threatening from day to day. No
legal way of getting rid of him has been
found, as he bonds himself out with
cash whenever arrested. During the
last few days there has been a disposi
ion to get rid of him by extra legal
means, and White Cap notices arc pour
ing in on him warning him to leave the
town. He is demoralizing labor, the
whites say ; he is creating an ill-feeling
between the races; he is capturing all
the money of the negroes : he must be
compelled to leave. Ihe fakir, however,
finds Shreveport a good field, and he
intends to stav. Should violence be
tried against him he has the negroes at
his back and could cause a great deal of
trouble. A race riot growing out of
liver pads is not at .all improbable in
Shreveport. Politics are quiet and busi
ness slumbering, while the citizens
discuss the question of how to get rid
of the dangerous fakir.

Father and Mother Charged With the
Murder of Their Daughter-An Ugly
ANDERsON, March 28.-ISpecial to The
Register.]-On the 21st inst. Dr. S. J.
McElroy of Pelzer swore out a warrant
against James S. Mabaffey and Nancy
C. Mahaffey, his wife. charging them
with the murder of their daughter. The
facts seem to be something like these:
Their (laughter was unfortunate in her
waywardness. and was about to bring
shame upon her family, or rather to de
velop the shame she had already brought
on them. The parents undertook to
avert this, and the result was an abor
tion, causing the death both of the child
and its mother. An inquest was held
and five doctors were present and made
a post mortem examination. Dr. McEl
roy; upon the facts developed at this
inquest, made the affidavit on which the
arrest warrant was issued, and the mur
derers of 'their own daughter now lan
guish in the jail at this place. B. C.

Dr. McDow Communicates With a Me=
Mr. Charles Baybon of Memphis, a
friend, schoolmate and associate for
many years of Dr. T. B. McDow, the
slayer of Captain Dawson, has received
the following letter from him:
CHARLESTON, S. C.. March 18, 1889.
Mr. Charles H. Baybon-My Dear Sir:
Your highly appreciated remembrance
is-at hand-what a treat it was to me.
My heart went back to my old home and
friends where 1 was so well and so favor
ably known ten years ago. I have in no
way, let me answer you, renounced the
claim they hold upon me.
Taught from childhood to lisp the
accents of truth, I can never eradicate
them from my bosom, and let me
assure you, I am neither a cowardly as
sassin, nor a self-confessed "rake and
libertine." Actuated as 1 have ever
been by a conscientious rectitude of pur
pose, I trust I have nothing to fear
before and impartial jury.
I place myself before God and my
country for trial. I have done no crime.
Your friend, T. B. MeDow, M. 1).
Amusing Indian Fables.
The Indians of North America had a
large stock of stories resembling the
fables of Esop. They are stories of
animals, and many of them are in form
as if first told by animals, not unlike
that of the Georgia negro stories pop
ularized by Uncle Remus. Mr. Gordon
reports the following from New Bruns
The clumsy butt of all the other ani
mals was always Muween, the bear,
and the cleverest were the panther,
Shoks, and the fisher-marten, Pekquan,
but these had not the same rank with
the tortoise, who, to my surprise, was
considered the great lord and chief
among the beasts, although his awk
wardness and helplessness led him into
many and unpleasant and ludicrous po
There was one very comical story of
his going out hunting, drawn on a sled
or tobbogan by two moose. Of course
he met with many misadventures. The
boughs swept him off his sled without
its being perceived by his steeds; he got
entangled in creepers, and finally his
team became so tired of their load that
they made a hole for him in the ice,
and left him there. But, by dint of
subtlety, he shot the moose of which
they were in search, whilst his compan
ions returncd empty-handed. On an
other occasion he sell into the hands of
enemies, and escaped from 'them only
bya series of clever stratagems.
The Archaeological Treasure.
During some excavations for an eu,
larged heating apparatus at the Abbey
Church, Sherborne, England. a leaden
coflin was found about ten feet beneath
the level of the floor- of the nave, and
near the west door. It was placed with
the feet to the east. It was opened and
was found to contain the remains, ap
parently, of a young girl, the outline
of whose features was singularly clear,
although~entirely blackened by time.
It was the opinion of a medical man
present that the deposit was a thou
sand years old. Within the leaden
coffin was a wooden shell, much de
cayed, and the remains themselves pre
sented the appearance of Charred pa
