WEDNESDAY, October 23,1889,
The Farmers' Alliance committee
on location of the Georgia Exchange
have selected Atlanta as the city iu
which the Exchange will build a large
ware house through which the sup
pes of the entire Alliance will be
handled. The design of the Alliance
is to do away with middle men, thus
cutting cost down to a minimum.
During the eight months ended
August 31, 1889, the immigration of
. Europeans to the United States was
nearly 100,000 less than during the
same period of 1888. The question
of foreign immigration to this coun
, try is rapidly working out its own so
lution without the intervention of
Congress. While the European move
ment to this country is rapidly de
dining, there is a strong increase in
the emigration from Spain and Italy
to South America.
A commission has been issued for
the incorporation of the Boys' and
Girls' Savings Institution of Orange
- burg, with a capital stock of $5,000,
divided into 250 shares of the par
value of $20 each. The same is to be
paid in by a payment of not less than
5 per share at the time of subscrip
tion, and the balance by installments
of $1 per share per month. The cor
porators are: Messrs. Samuel Dibble,
A. C. Dukes, Charles G. Dantzler, 0.
R Lowman, and Abial Lathrop.
Louis I, king of Portugal, died last
Saturday, in the fifty-first year of his
life, and in the twenty-fifth year of
his reign. He was a weak sovereign,
and almost or quite bankrupted his
kingdom. Portugal though in area
about the size of the State of South
Carolina, with a population a little
more than four times as great, yet has
a public debt one hundred times as
great as this State. His son Carlos,
who is about twenty-six years old,
will succeed him to the throne.
It has been stated that Capt. A.
Levi, president of the Bank of Man
nig, S. C., was the youngest bank
president in the State. Mr. Levi's
age is 26. Greenville, however,
claims the distinction of having the
bank president in the State,
and, no doubt, in -the United States.
J. W. Norwood, president of the
" .Geenville Savings Bank, is now only
24 years of age, and has been presi
dent of the institution since its or
ganization two years ago. The cap
ital stock is $50,000. Mr. Norwood
is from Marion.
The statement that the Farmers'
Alliance was petitioning or intended
to petition the legislatures of the va
rious States, in which they have been
-naihn to suspend the collection
- of debts for six months, has been
widely promulgated through the
South, and has .undoubtedly created
some alarm. It seems to have been,
wev beolutely without founda
tion ai oepk velyde
aied by the leading spirits oTh.eu
'ganization, who state unequivocally,
tb~t no such resolution has been pass
ed or is contemplated.
An Englishman, who recently con
versed with Tennyson, writes to an
saarican literary friend that the poet
laureate is aging rapidly. Talk meant
distress to him, and reference to per
-sons very close to him in friendship,
"which formerly enlisted his interest,
- seemed to meet with but little re
sponse. In his walk he shuffled heav
ily, and the cane that he once carried
aacompanion to idly swing in mo
ments of thought had become almost
~a staf The strong aroma of a pipe
-carelessly jammed into one of his coat
pockets was about the only thing that
sgeedthe Tennyson of old-there
was certainly nothing in his conversa
tion, manners, or appearance.
Confederate Veterans Meeting.,
The meeting of the survivors' asso
ciation of Confederate soldiers of
-Clarendon county was called to order
a few minutes after 12 o'clock last
Monday, W. 3. Clark in the chair.
About thirty or thirty-five veterans
- were present.
W. J. Clark was re-elected chair
*man. D. J. Bradlham declined re
-election as secretary, and Jas. E. Da
vie was elected secretary.
Capt. Bradham in a short speech
criticised the action of the State board
*on the way in which they had ignored
*the county board of veterans, in ap
proving of pensions without referring
thermatterto the county board. The
law contemplates, he said, that only
the most needy should get the money,
and that each should get $3 amonth.
As-it was, by approving, of too many
applicationis, the amount paid had
been cut down so low that instead of
- getting $3 a month they really got
* ess than $2 a month. Those most in
need of the pension should get it, and
the board of county veterans would
be in a position to best jiidge of this
matter. He thought too much of the
money had been spent in paying of
The following veterans were elected
as the pension county board of vet
erans: D. y. Bradhami, 3. Elbert Da
Svis, N. B. Barrow, A. J. Richbourg,
and R. D. 'Chames.
Capt. D. J. Bradham offered the
following resolutions, which were
Resoksi, That we, the survivors of Clar
endon county of the late war between the
States, do petition the Legislature of South
Carolina to disburse the pension fund in
the different counties of the State through
the County Treasurer, payable by warrants
. to be drawn by the Soldiers' Pension Comn
-missioners and the County Pension Board
(jointly), thus saving the enoimous expense
incurred during the past year in disbursing
Resolved, That we ask Lhe law- makers of
our land to appropriate a suffcient sum to
pay the pensioners the full amount contem
plated, and that the payments be made
each month as directed by law.
We further ask that a sufficie nt sum be
appropriated to pay the deficiency of the
present year, $12.60 to each oie, they hay
ing only receivedS23.40.
Capt. Bradhamn made a few touch
ing'remarks about the small number
of persons present. He had hoped
the court house building would have
to-day been crowded, and that a coun
ty survivors' association would have
been formed, but there were too few
present to-day. He hoped that by
the next meeting, a year hence, there
would be present a large attendance,
and that a survivors' association would
then be enthusiastically formed.
Mr. N. B. Barrow favored that a
conmittee be appointed to raise funds
to build a Confederate monument, but
it was thought best to take no action
in the matter at this meeting.
The meeting was then adjourned.

The Early English Novel.
While the literature of the eigh
teenth century was regarded as peculi
arly of a prosaic character, it was a
period remarkable for the literary
development of prose fiction. Criti
cism was active, the form in which
thought was expressed was especially
regarded, and English prose was be
coming clear and simple, It was an
age congenial to prose-practical and
common sense appeals were most pop
ular with the reading public; intel
lectual activity was taking a new
range-the "sublimities" of poetical
sentiments were being succeeded by
historical, didactic, and narrative char
acteristics-and the prevailing fiction
was the distinctions of the romance
and novel prose epic of literature.
No poems or histories of the same
period have delineated the manners,
customs, virtues, and vices of the age,
as graphically, or exerted such an in
fluence on the people, as the early
Swift was the great prose satirist of
this age, but to DeFoe belongs the
distinction of being the founder of
the modern novel. His prose style
was forcible and powerful in influ
ence, while the realism of his imagi
native works was wonderful. He had
the "art of forging a story and im
posing it on the world for truth," by
minute'ness of imagined circum
stances. The Journal of the Plague
in London was long regarded as a,
history of facts, and Robinson Crusoe
as a narrative of personal adventure.
But the true idea of the novel, the
development of a story round the
passion of love to a tragic or joyous
conclusion, is embodied in the inven
tion of a new species of writing by
Richardson. He ranks first as the
sentimental novelist, in the romance
of domestic English life and manners,
not influenced by any foreign prece
dent or style. In his three novels,
Pamela, Clarissa Harlowe, and Sir
Charles Grandison, he enlisted the
passions on the side of virtue, relig
ion, and truth, concentrating all the
interest of his story around the hero
or heroine; painting "characters of
nature" with rare fidelity and art, in
dependent of external scenes, or tran
sient digressions, or historical descrip
tions. His sphere of action was cir
cumscribed, but the pathos and "elab
orate intensity which penetrated into
the subtle windings of the human
heart," made his novels immensely
popular and fascinating at home, and
gave them a wide spread reputation
and appreciation abroad.
The great humorists of English lit
erature are Fielding, - Smollett, and
Sterne. Fielding, the "prose Homer
of human nature," made his successful
literary venture by a burlesque work,
Joseph Andrew, directed against the
reiterated virtue, morality, and "cant"
(as he regarded it) of te v--'f
~m~e~icaure, he found he had
invoked an original genius and style.
He confined himself not so much to
delineation of characters, as to dis
sertations and descriptions of hu
mors, places, and society, foreign and
domestic. The style and construction
of his books are artistic, harmonious,
picturesque, and amusing; displaying
a thorough knowledge of his subject,
his descriptions taking a wide range
and variety of incidents. While his
books are censured for their coarse
ness, and laxity of morals and princi
ples, yet, for the kindly humor, cheer
ful satire, and perfect touches of na
ture, Jonathan Wild and Tom Jones
are regarded as master pieces.
Smollett was versatile in his ge
nius and literary flights; as a novelist,
his success began with Roderick Ran
dom. Of Humphrey Clinker, Thack
eray says: "It is the most laughable
story- that haps ever been written since
the goodly art of novel writing be
gan." The works of Smollett are
more historical and accurate in obser
vation, dealing with personal adven
tures aftd descriptions, but in style
and construction they are inferior~ to
those of Richardson and Fielding.
"His novels are a series of striking,
grotesque, farcical, andl occasional pa
thetic scenes, which have little other
bond of union than the fact of their
being threaded on the life of a single
person." They are amusing, partak-'
ing of his irascible and scornful na
ture; and humorous, from the stand
ard of coarse farce, if possible a shade
lower than the subtle comedy of
Of this trio, Sterne is the man of
sentiment, pre-eminently. He was
unique and eccentric, a natural hu
morist, but pathetic and lachrymose
in his writings. There is no contin
uous chain or plot to his stories, the
connection is only maintained by the
unity and consistency of his charac
ters. The wit, and humor, and beau
ties of fancy, whatever they may be,
of Tristrami Shandy, and the Senti
mental Journey, must be forever mar
red by the impurity and corruption,
and "foul Satyr's eyes, leering out of
The mind takes a breath of purer
thought, as we leave these old humor
ists, great and bnilliant as they may
be, but how little good or benefit has
their genius exerted by creating a
wholesome and elevating influence
through their books.
The other novels of this period ap
pear weak and poor, comparatively.
Johnson's Rasselas was an improba
ble, unsatisfactory tale; Miss Burney's
novels were of the artificial journal
society order; and it is only through
Goldsmith's Vicar of Wakefield, the
idyllic charm of ivhich awakes a pure
and simple love, and'a new thought
and interest in rural life and scenes,
that the sentimental literature of the
day seems redeemed and purified.

CHALLENGED FOR A DUEL.
Editor H. S. Cunningham, of Orange
burg, is Challenged to Fight a Duel
He Declines to Do So-The Correspon
dence and Expianations.
The following correspondence ex
OR.ANGEnrRG, S. C., Oct. 10, 1889.
IMAir. I. S. Cunningham, Orangeburg,
DEAR SiR:-I herewith demand a
full and unconditional retraction of
everything offensive to myself in the
last issue of the Spectator.
Otherwise you will arrange with my
friend, Mr. H. H. Riggs, who will hand
you this, for a meeting beyond the
limits of the State, where we can set
tle our differences to our mutual sat
isfaction. Very respectfully,
E. R. WALTER.
ORANGEBURG, S. C., Oct. 11, 1889.
H. H. Riggs, Eq
DEAR SIR-Mr. E. R. Walter's com
munication to Mr. H. S. Cunningham
through you has been handed to me
by Mr. Cunningham with the request
to represent him in this matter only
as a law abiding citizen and as a
peacemaker between him and Mr.
Walter, so that you and Mr. Walter
will clearly see, to begin with, that he
will not accept the challenge contain
ed in said communication. Both of
you must be fully aware of this fact
which can be easily proven by refer
ence to the various editorial remarks
on duelling that have so frequently
appeared in the Sp ctator.
Now, as to retractions demanded
by Mr. Walter, I am authorized by
Mr. Cunningham to say to you that a
retraction is first due to Mr. Cunning
ham, and if Mr. Walter will retract
the article that appeared in the issue
of the Times and Democrat of date
September 18,- 1889, over his signa
ture as "Business Agent F. A. 0. C.,"
then Mr. Cunningham will do like
But unless this is done Mr. Cun
ningham not only refuses to retract,
but as I clearly stated before, refuses
most positively to take any further
notice of the communication.
Trusting now that you in the inter
est of a peaceful settlement of this
difficulty will confer with your friend
(Capt. Walter) and let us make a
joint effort to put a final end to the
same. I am yours respectfully,
The readers of the last issue of the
Spectator will refer to the following
paragraphs contained therein, com
pare them with the above correspon
dence and draw their own conclusions:
"Who knows himself a braggart,
Let him fear this; for it will come to pass
That every braggart shall be, found an ass."
"If the Captain's pugilistic ire has been
raise'l and still feels like masquerading in
the role of the 'old school' we might be
tempted to wave all discrepancies and
won't deny him that privilege."
The public can estimate at his true
value, a man and an editor, who, af
ter indulging in the vilest and most
atrocious abuse of a felloi~ citizen
through the column~s of his paper, re
fuses to be respc-nsible for his utter
ances, and whines like a whipped cur
in reply to n demand for either re
E. R. WALTER.
Mr. Cunningham's Reply.
To the Editor of The News and Coiu
rier: The publication of Mr. E. R.
Walter's challenge to me to meet him
on the field of honor, and the letter
of Mr. Robert Copes in The Newes.and
Courier has caused a great deal of
anxiety to my friends and relatives in
the State. Inasmuch as you have
given so much publicity to it, I re
spectfully ask the privilege of a short
explanation in your widely circulated
paper, that this undue anxiety may
Mr. Walter took exceptions at a re
port tliat I made of his speech while
he was canvassing this county in the
interest of the Farmers' Alliance. He,
in a card published in the Times and
Democrat, emphatically denied giving
utterance to certain expressions as re
ported by me in the Spectator, and
denounced the Spectator and its editor
in a most abusive manner; and made
the assertion, without any proof, that
the Spectator' was no friend to the Al
liance, and closed by saying he had
an utter contempt for the Spectator
and its editor. To this tirade of
abuse I replied most courteously, and
the only sentiment in my entire re
marks that could have possibly been
construed as discourteous was that
the 'contempt was mutual." At the
same time I proved by two promi
nent gentlemen of the Alliance, who
were on the stand with Mr. Walter,
that he did relate the incident which
he so emphatically had denied. Af
ter he found that he had been cor
nered, he came out the next week
with a card in the Times and Demo
crat and acknowledged that he did
touch upon all the points as reported
by me, but not in the same language.
He again villified the ~Spectator and
its editor in a most shameful manner.
Then it was that I let fall a little of
the Spectator's irony and ridicule. As
a law-abiding citizen I could not have
treated his challenge otherwise than
to leave it in the hands of my friend
for an amicable settlement if possi
ble. The proposition through Mr.
Copes was ignored. Mr. Walter has
tened into the public print. I am
satisfied to let the sober, thinking and
law-abiding people be the judge of
the course pursued by both. With
this I dismiss the subject from any
further notice. H. S. CusIxionr.

-Enforce the Duelling Law.
The anti-duelling law of South Car
olina ought to be enforced, or it
ought to be abolished, and it is more
important that its provisions against
the preparatory measures leading to
a duel should be strictly carried out
than that a man should be hanged for
murder committed in a duel or pre
vented from holding office for having
participated in one of these illegal
encounters. When a duel is fought
and a man is killed, the chief evil
against which the law seeks to provide
has already befallen, and although the
majesty of the law may be vindicated
by a subsequent hanging, its object,
at least in that particular case, has
been thwarted. But if the man who
sends a-challenge and the man who
carries a challenge, and all others
olate the anti-duelling law, are
promptly arrested and punished as
the law provides, murder is prevent
ed, the prime object of the law at
tained, and wholesome example set to
other quarrelsome and lawless per
sons, whose bloodthirsty disposition
or false ideas of honor might other
wise tempt them to commit like of
There is also another reason why
special attention should now be di
rected to the enforcement of the law
against challenges and other prepar
atory steps toward a duel. The law
is generally acknowledged as binding,
so far as the actual fighting of a duel
is concerned. The man, therefore,
who sends a challenge is a mere Fal
staff, pretending to be anxious for an
encounter which he knows will not be
permitted to take place, all the officers
of the law being on the qui vive to
prevent it, as soon as there is a whis
per of the intended combat. The
man who is challenged has the disa
greeable alternative of accepting and
making himself particeps criminis in
the violation of the law and a co
actor in the ridiculous farce, or of re
fusing and giving the challenger an
opportunity of crowing over him.
This is unfair. The law should not
prevent a man from fighting a duel,
and at the same time permit him to
be annoyed by a challenge.
The law should, in justice to all
parties, be altogether revoked or alto
gether enforced. The people of South
Carolina have by their legislature de
clared that it is their will that the law
be enforced. The executive depart
ment of the government should see
that it is enforced. It may be asked,
how is the challenger is to be pun
ished, if the challenged party refuse
to make complaint? If a duel is
fought and the challenger is killed,
the coroner finds a verdict and the
grand jury finds a bill. When a no
torious violation of the law has taken
place it is equally the duty of the
grand jury to make inquiry and find
a bill. When the fact of a challenge
having been sent is published in the
county papers there is no excuse for
the grand jury to ignore the violation
of the law.
If there is no harm in duelling,
repeal the anti-duelling law. But as
long as it is on the statute-book, en
force it in all its provisions. Other
wise, the peaceful and law-abiding
citizen is in a~ worse condition than
he would be without any anti-duelling
law. In that case, if disposed to
fight, he was on equal grounds with
his adversary. If not a fighting man,
it would be considered ridiculous and
cowardly to challenge him. Now a man
may not fight lawfully, and yet any
pugnacious person may challenge a
notoriously inoffensive and non-fight
ing citizen, and venture to crow over
his declination of a challenge. Such
a condition of the law is an offence
against decency and a disgrace to the I

J1. RZ. Wilson, Glen Alpine Station, N. C.,
Feb. 13, 1885, writes: "Bone and blood
poison forced me to have my leg amputated,
and on the stump there came a large ulcer,
which grew worse every day until doctors
gave mec up to die. I only weighed 120
pounds when I began to take B. B. B., and
