LOW VALUES FOR TAXATION.
There are two views to take of the
report of the grand jury of Sumter
county, which presented the bond of
County Treasurer Keels as insufficient
and recommended that he be not al
lowed to perform the duties of his
office till it was strengthened: either
that the grand jury is ignorant of the
value of the lands of their county, or
that it was a species of political per
secution. We prefer to attribute it
to ignorance. The true blame rests
upon the board of equalization and
the auditor of last year. These men
took an oath to see that the property
of the people was properly assessed,
and yet in the face of this oath this
board of equalization swore that land
that had been sold or could easily be
sold for more than $12 per acre was
worth for taxation only $3 an acre.
And the auditor, though it was his
sworn duty to see that all property
was listed at or near its true value,
-ntly acquiesced ip this equaliza

A Caard About aThird Party in South
[From the New York Sun.)
Cwmerasow, April 19.-The recent meet
gin Columbia of the white Republicans
of this State, has caused a tremnendous sen
aation. In spite of the efforts of the party
leaders here and in Washington to diared
it the movement, it is growing. andi its ranks
are rapidly being recruited from the Demo
cratic pat. A. W. Clayton, a prominent
Rhiepublican, who was instrumentalmi
geting upthe movement, is out ina card
today in which he says:
"Th object of the Convention was to
form a Republican League in this State as
a branch of the National Republican League,
and to elect delegtes to the Cincinnati Con
'vention of said 'ational League. We ree
cignize as fully as the gentlemen at Wash
ington that the whites of this State cannot
join a party led by Smalls, Miller, and
equally offensive Bepublicans. Our object
is to form a nucleus around which white maen
may rally on protection, ballot reform, and
the money question, ignoring the race ques
tion only to accord the negro his rights as
an American citizen."
There is more in the movement here than
a mere flash in the pan. The meeting was
the frst distinctively white Republican Con
vention ever held in the State. The pres
ne of a large number of prominent white
men, who have heretofore been leaders in
the councils of the Democratic party, makes
it especially significant at this time.
It was announced when President Har
rison was inauj~r ted that his purpose was
to establish a. wl'te Repuiblican party in the
South, and thus break the solid South. The
President's policy has been very effectively
crried out by the Alliance in this State.
Rundrds of leading Democrats here will
join the new movement if they get half a
chance, Old line Democrats in the State
are wearied with the political situation. The
farmers' movement, so called, has side
trcked the oldparty, and the new depart

The Races in the Counties.
Of the thirty-five counties which
constitute the State of South Caroli
na, in eight only do the whites out
number the blacks, and the names of
these eight counties will cause some'
surprise, as some of them are so
widely separated from the others.
The eight are Anderson, Chester
field, Greenville, Horry, Lexington,
Oconee, Pickens, and Spartanburg,
the combined white population of
which is 153,955 against a colored
population of 85,007.
In seven additional counties, viz.,
Aiken, Charleston, Florence, Lancas
ter, Marion, Union, and York, the
whites, though less numerous, are
not much behind the colored popula
tion in numbers, amounting as they
do, to 102,277 as against a colored
population of 129,236, so it will be
seen that the aggregate white popula
tion of fifteen counties out of the thir
ty-five counties of the State exceeds
the colored by some forty thousand
In the eleven counties of Abbeville,
Barnwell, Chester, Clarendon, Colle
1ton, Fairfield,' Hampton, Newberry,
Orangeburg, Richland, and Williams
burg, the colored population is almost
two to one in excess of the white. '
In the five counties of Darlington,
Edgefield, Kershaw, Laurens, and
Marlborough, while the colored pop
ulation is greatly in excess of the
white, the proportion is not as great
as above; but in Sumter county the
population is almost three to one in
favor of the colored population.
In the three counties of George
town, Berkeley, and'Beaufort, the col
ored population is in excess cf
the whites in the following propor
tions: Georgetown, 4 to 1; Berkeley,
6 to 1: and Beaufort 14 to 1. From
these figures it is shown that there is
no reason why the coast, any more
than the upper counties, should not
hold a white population outside of
the cities.-Carlesonz World.
The Germ Destroyer.
In the field of discovery and inven
tion, medicine has not kept pace with
surgery. That, perhaps, is natural;
service surgery is the mechanical
branch of medicine. The general ac
ceptance of the germ theory of dis
ease, however, opens a new field for
medicine, anel will take it~ completely
away from the mediteval superstitions
that still cling to its skirts. And yet
medicine is not without its discover
Iies. It has long been known, and the
fact is now recognized wherever the
test has been made, that Swift's Spe
cific (S. S. S.) will destroy the germs
of malarial disease, the :nicrobes of
skin disease, and the bacilli of contag
jous and other forms of blood poison
ing, ejects them from the blood, and
purifies and builds up the system. No
medical discovery of our day has
achieved such remarkable success.
Augusta Equals Chicago in Divorces.
Eight divorces were granted in
eighty minutes in the Superior Court
in Augusta on Monday. The average
time consumed in putting asunder
those whom God had joined together
was ten minutes, but in one or two of
the cases the court made a special
spurt and dissolved the bonds in sev-1
en minutes by a stop-watch. This is
not a record of which the respectable
people of our neighboring city and
State should be proud. It is, howev
er, one of the signs that Georgia does
indeed belong to "the New South."
So soon as the news can be carried to
Indiana, Illinois, and Rhode Island,
'perhaps it will cause a steady stream
of not very desirable immigrants from

received during the war) and full of that
odious disease catarrh. The doctors said I
would not live and quit giving me medicine,
as it did no good. I have since used noth

my digestion good, my palsied arm is well,
My catarrh removed, and my general health
is excellent. 1. W. AVERY.

Eggs for setting from thoroughbred birds of following varieties:
WHITE PLYMOUTH ROCKS.
$1.50 per setting of 15 eggs. $2.50 per setting of 30 eggs. I also
offer eggs from my prize pens of Black Minorcas, Brown Leghorns, and
White Leghorns, at $3 per setting of 15, or $5 for 30 eggs. In addition
to other prizes awarded to the birds compbosfng these pens, the Cockrels were
awarded first prizes at the great International Poultry and Pet Show, recent
ly held at Chareston-th? largest poultry exhibit ever known in the South.
These birds can be relied upon as being the finest of their strains. They
were purchased from breeders of established reputation, at a cost of $145
for the three pens of 18 birds, and the prizes won by them over the large
array of competitors- is a guarantee that they are all that is claimed. I
also keep the
Manmmoth Pekin Ducks,
noted as being great egg producers and for the rapid growth of the young
ones-weighing at ten weeks old ten pounds to the pair. Eggs per setting
of 13, $2.
