Civil Service Reform Matching On.
Civil service reform is a by-word of re
proach among the practical politicans of all
parties. They hate it both in the abstract
and in the concrete. and do not now and
never have hesitated to express in terms more
forcible than refined their utter contempt
for civil service reform and civil servicee
reformers. and yet in spite of the open op
position of active spoilsmen and the in
difference of the rank and file of partisans
of all shades. Carl Schurz was able to state
in his address before the Civil Service Re
form League at Chicago on Wednesday that
50,000, or nearly one-half of the civil em
ployees of the United States Government,
are selected under civil serve rules,
Coincident with the encouraging state
ment of Mr. Schurz came the announce
ment from Washington that the President
had just issued an order extending the civil
service regulations to the internal revenue
service, adding in round numbers nearly
2,500 employees to the classified list. And
this indicates the progress of civil service
reform only in the Federal branch of our
public service. Its principles have been
embodied in and given more or less practi
cal application to State governments and
in the municipal administration of most of
our important cities. In New York it has
been embodied in the new State Constitu
tion. Civil service reform like John
Brown's soul, seems to be marching on.
The substantial progress of civil service
reform in th f.inc of the relentless opposi
tion of partisan tleaders is primarily due to
the fact that theladministration of the public
affairs of seventy millions of people could
no longer be conducted on the spoils plan.
Civil service reform has come because it
had to come, because it was a physical im
possibility for the President and his exe
cutive advisers to longer make the minor
appointments in the old way. Inexorable
necessity has proved the strongest ally of
the reform leaders. The good results of
the expariment have so far justified its
adoption -that there is no popular demand
for a backward step. On the contrary,
p. sentiment. is steadily tending in its
i same inexorable necessity will be
- ent factor in compelling the appli
-of the reform to municipal affairs.
)w american municipal government
ng a terrible shaking up. Its de
ostliness, corruption and general in
efficiency are being shown in most vivid
colors, a certain preliminary to an irresisti
ble public demand for the application of
purely business methods to city govern
ment. Business methods as applied to
municipal affairs is but another name for
civil service reform, and when the business
tax-payers who bear the expenses of city
govarnment have been plundered a little
longer they will insist on the application
of the same principle to the expenditure
of their taxes that they apply in the con
duct of their own business.
Of course it does not follow that inexor
able necessity will prevent civil service re
form from getting some set-backs. Presi
dent Harrison suspended the application
of the rules to the railway mail service at
the beginning of his administration, and
as the laws stands future Presidents will
have the power to do the same thing. But
even President Harrison, for partisan or
other reasons, extended the classified ser
vice before the close of his term beyond any
of his predecessors, precedent that has been
still father followed by President Cleve
land. Civil service reform is one of the
revolutions that cannot and will not go
backward, and Mr. Sehurz and his fellow
reformers can console themselves with the
thought that even the stars in their courses
are fighting their battle against the vitu
perative spoilsmen.-Phildelphia Times.

A Christmas Lesson.
Christmas is essentially a heart
festival. It is a time not only for re
calling _.the birth of Bethlehem's
babe, but for dwelling upon the won
derfuli significence of the incarnation.
"God manifested in the flesh," is the
way the Apostle puts it. What a
condesension that God should stoop
to earth and assume a human form
and become partaken of our nature!
When Webster read Chalmers' great
sermon on "the Wonders of the tele
scope," his reason and his faith were
shaen how could a divine Being
who created unnumbered systems of
worlds, each circling around a cen
tral sun, stoop to one of the smallest
of the planets and concern himself
with our petty cares? But the great
preacher delivered another sermon,
in which he dwelt upon the wonders
of the microscope? showing that in
the little rolled up seared leaf of win
ter blown hither and you, there lay
securely wrapped and protected from
the snow and the cold a miniature
world that should awaken and in
crease with the coming of spring.
Then the great statesman concluded
that if God could care for the little
insects that glitter in the sun and
protect them in their long winter
sleep, he could care for immortal
man; and so his faith came back to
Even so, God, who regardeth the
sparrow's fall and clothes the lillies
of the field wvill not lose sight of man,
who is "of more value than many
sparrows," The infinite condesension!
Think of it, bereaved one. who mis
ses a familliar voice and a vanished
hand at the Christmas table. He
took the beloved one, but not for one
moment has He forgotton you. He
will come in and be your Christmas
guest if you will permit Him. Think
of if, aged one with bent form and
dimmed eyes looking towards sunset.
He knows your weakness, He sees
your failing strength. Lean upon
Him and find Him your perfect
The infinite condescension! Thlnk
of it, young man and young maiden.
Ponder it, old and middle-aged and
young. Let us all appropriate the
lesson-the lesson of humility and
self-abnegation and trust. Let us
learn to sink self in the work before
us; to work unfalterinip along the
line marked for us, seeking not our
own but what is God's. We have
but to do and leave results with Him.
So doing we shall fufil the noblest
purpose of living and fit ourselves to
be inhabitants of- eternal mansions

McLaurin Talks Plainly.
The Carlisle bill was up before Con
gress last Saturday and Congressmar
McLaurin was one among the num
ber that took part in the discussion.
He was opposed to the bill upon the
ground- that it was not Democrac3
and not in compliance with the
promises made in the party's plat
form. We take from the press dis'
patch the following short synopsis -o
Mr-. McLaurin made a vigorod attacd
upon the policy of the Democratic part)
upon fmnancial matters in the past two years
"There is not a single line of Democracy it
the whole measure," he said, "not a singl4
principle of Democracy in its entire provis
ions, nor a solitary demand put forth by
National Democratic Conference. The
Democratic party for years has asked the
people for a chance to bring peace and
prosperity to their doors. Two years agc
that request was granted, and what has
been the result? Not a single pledge has
been redeemed nor a single promise kept,
but the entire machinery of the party has
been placed in the hands of that class o1
individuals who have been in the past, and
are even now, the curse of the decent peo
ple of the country. The people had a rea
son to expect relief from the Democratic
party, and the results of last November
may be taken as a lively reminder of their
disappointment, and I venture the asser.
tion that if the present bill becomes a las
the people at the next election will wipe
out the last vestige of the Democratic party.
Instead of granting them relief, instead ol
giving them free coinage of silver as had
been expected, aind upon which pledge
folly three-quarters of the Democrats oj
this House were elected, they proved re
creant to their trust, and further degraded
silver by repealing the purchasing clause
of the Sherman Act, and to-day there ir
absolutely no method by which the volume
of currency can be increased except the
chances of gold mining. This places the
people in a position when they are the vic
tims of all the disasters which await upon
and are sure to follow the stationary or de.
creasing volume of currency. This bill is
filled with pitfalls and quagmires, as are
all the financial measures which have passed
Congress since 1860. This is not Secretary
*Carlisle's bill. This gentleman is simply
the starting horse for Wall street. It bears
the made trade-mark of that -locality whicha
is beginning to be recognized in all parts
of the na~tion."
Mr. McLaurin then advocated free coin
aga of silver as the demand of the hour and

this is the Northeastern Sumter Annual
Massiso, December 22.-On Wednesday
morning at 9.30 o'clock, the gavel sounded
in Trinity A. M. E. Church, in the town of
Manning. S. C., calling the third session of
the Northeast Sumter Annual Conference to
order, the Rt. Rev. M. B. Salter, D. D.,
Bishop of the Diocese of South Carolina
and Tennessee, presiding. The Rev. A. J.
Hunter, of Marion, was chosen secretary in
chief, with D. J. Brown and J. P. Alston as
his assistants. After the organization the
reports were called for, and before a recess
was taken every district had been heard
from. Nearly fourteen hundred dollars
were reported for "dollar money." This is
a little less than last year, but it is expected
that the reports will be supplemented.
The Conference was v:sited by the Rev.
J. C. Etubrv, D. D., business manager of
the A. M. E. publication department; the
Rev. Wi. B. Derrick, D. D., missionary
secretary of the church; the Rev. Jas. H.
Davis, fraternal dehgate from the Confer
ences of Teues e: the Rev. C. P. Nel,on,
D. D., presidirng elider of the Greenville
district of the Colunbia A. M. E. Confer
ence, and the Rev. B. J. Ramsey, fraternal
delegate from the same body.
un Wednesnay night the annual address
was delivered by the Rev. J. G. Sampson,
D. D., and presiding elder of the Sumter
district. The address was thoughtful and
On Thursday morning, after devotional
exercises, those who wcre absent on the
first day were given a chance to report.
During this session a report on "the state
of the country" was read beforo the Confer
ence. A feature ot the report touched on
"class legislation," lynchiags, etc. The re
port recommended emigration to other
parts of the couintry, to Africa or anywhere
else where relitt could be found. But Dr.
Derrick challenged that feature of the re
port upon its passage, and made a telling
speech against any attempt at colonization
or wholesale emigration of our people. He
contended that this country is as much the
negro's home as any one else, for he fought
for her independence and stained the field
of battle with his blood to preserve the
sanctity and union of the sisterhood of
States. He concluded by saying that we
are here and here to stay. We shall stay
and help to advance the mterial progress
of the country.
At night was the missionary rally of the
Conference. The audience was composed
of the best people of Manning, both white,
and black. Dr. Derrick, the missionary
secretary of the Church. delivered an ad
dress which was able, eloquent and pro
found. Many have said that it is simply
wonderful. Many of the whites assisted in
the missionary rally, the Rev. Dr. mood
giving as much as five dollars himself.
The entire missionary collection was
The election of trustees for Allen Univer
sity resulted in electing the Rev. Messrs.
Sampson, Chappelle, Flegler, Thomas,
Hayward, Hunter and Perrin.
On Friday night was held the education
al mass meeting. The building was taxed
to its utmost capacity to accommodate the
audience. Bishop Salter introduced Dr.
R. E. Wall, presiding elder in the Colum
bia Conference and treasurer of Allen Uni
versity, who read his report and then de
livered a telling address. He was followed
by the Rev. J. Q. Johnson, the president of
The Rev. Scott, of the Methodist Episco
pal church in Sumter and editor of the
Journal of Progiess, delivered a humorous
and happy address. Everybody knows
Scott and what he was most likely to talk
on upon this occasion.
The closing address of the evening was
delivered by the Rev. J. B. Ramsey, the
fraternal delegate from the Columbia Con
ference. He made quite an impression
upon the audience. The Bishop honored
him for his address by tendering hint is
gavel and seat for one hour.
The Conference is still led by Chappelle,
'homas, Sampson, Flegler and Heyward as
presiding elders, while they are followed in
close pursuit by a strong set of young men
who ere long are destined to come to the
front. The Conference elected the Rev.
D. H. Bowden, the reporter for this paper,
as a fraternal delegate to the Conferences of
Tennessee at their next sitting.-News and
