Agent for Wannamaker & Brown,
Joseph Sprotl, Sr., has Joined the
Died, yesterday at his home in
Jordan, in the eighty-third year of his
age, Mr. Joseph Sprott, Sr. Mr.
Sprott was a man who merited the love
and respect of not only the commu
nity in which he lived, but the large
number of acquaintainces throughout
the State. He took a deep interest
in the welfare of his neighbors and
many a one has been the beneficiary
of his charity. His home was always
open to his friends, his hospitality
was proverbial and he dispensed
charity with a lavished hand. He
lived a life that is worthy of imita
tion by his fellow man. Mr. Sprott
was a deep- thinker and his judge
meut on matters of business and
politics was sought after. He was
one of the twelve commissioners to
locate the county seat for this county,
and is the last member of the sub
committee of the three who selected
Manning as the site. He never
would accept office with profit, but
often served his people in public
position where no pay was attached.
When the war-broke out Mr. Sprott
was in bad health and not able to go,
but his remaining home was a blessing
to the wives of and children of the
soldiers. He supplied the wants of
the soldier's families and furnished
bountifully to the men at the front.
Mr. Joseph Sprott, Sr., was truly a
patriot, a gentleman and a man of
piety. He was a consistent member
of the Methodist church nearly all his
life, and although having lived to a
ripe old age and havingjhad the grati
fication of seeing his children grow
up and become staunch and worthy
citizens,' his death has removed a
land mark that will be sadly missed.
The funeral took place to day at
Jordan church. Rev. James Mc
Dowell, an old friend of the deceased,
conducted the service. The funeral
was largely attended, and quite a
number from Manning laid a side
their business to go to pay their last
respects to this noble gentleman.
Manning, S. C., April 18, 1895.
In obediance to the call for a stock
holders' meeting of the Manning Col
legiate Institute, which was duly ad
vertised and proper notices sent to
each stockholder, said meeting was
held in the court house, in Manning,
on April 18th, 1895.
Mr. James E. Davis, chairman of
the board of trustees, called the
meeting to order. In organizing for
the transaction of business Joseph
Rhame. Esq., was elected chairman
and E. J. Browne, secretary. At the
request of the chairman, Maj. A. Levi
stated the objects of the meeting,
namely: to devise some way by
which the indebtedness of the Insti
tute could be discharged; to elect
trustees in the place of those whose
terms had expired, and such other
business as might properly come be
fore the meeting.
before proceeding further, it was
ascertained that a majority of the
stockholders were represented at the
meeting. Of the 440 shares, 267 were
either represented in person or by
proxy. Maj. Levi submitted a claim
in favor of The Bank of Manning for
($728.40)seven hundred and twenty
three dollars and forty cents, which
amount he stated was the original
loans together with interest to date.
Mr. M. Levi submitted a claim for
($79.27) seventy-nine dollars and
twenty-seven cents. The advisabili
ty of electing a board of trustees was
discussed at some length. As there
were no official records, they having
been burned during the fire, and the
members of the old board not know
ing definitely when their terms ex
pired, the members of the old board
with one exception resigned, in order
that a new board could with legal
propriety be elected. Those who
tendered their resignations and
which were accepted were: A.
Levi, D. M. Bradham, B. A.
Walker, Jas. E. Davis, P. B. Mouzon,
and I. I. Bagnal. Mr. C. J. Lesesne,
having temporarily removed from the
State, his- office as trustee was, on
motion of Mr. A. Levi, declared va
It was thought best to reduce the
number of trustees, and on motion
of Mr. A. Levi, the number was fixed
at five and their term of office two
years. A motion by Mr. A1T Levi to
elect a new board was adopted and
resulted in the following members:
Messrs. James E. Davis, D). M. Brad
ham, I. I. Bagnal, W. Scott Harvin,
and B. A. Walker.
A motion by Mr. Appelt, that the
secretary notify the new members of
their election and a ppoint a time for
them to meet and organize, was
adopted. The following motion by
Mr.Appelt was unanimously adopted:
Resolved that the trustees -of the
Manning Collegiate Institute be in
structed to ascertain by proof the
indebtedness of said Institute, and
also be authorized to negotiate a
loan to pay off all the indebtedness
so ascertained, existing against said
institution, and to give a mortgage
of the property, if the same be neces
sary, also to include in said loan
enough money to keep said building
A motion was made by Mr. D. M.
Bradham that a committee of three
be appoinfed to draft a set of by-laws
for th1e guidance of the board, and
that the chairman, Mr. Rhame, be
one of said committee and he to ap
point the others. This was adopted
and the other members appointed
were Mr. A. Levi and Mr. I. I. Bag
A motion by Mr. Davis that the
secretary of this meeting be author
ized to turn over the minutes of this
meeting, after being approved by the
chairman, to the board of trustees,
and also to present a copy to The
Bank of Manning, was adopted.
A motion to adjourn, subject to the
call of the board of trustees, unless
sooner called together by any num
ber of stockholders representing fifty
or more shares, was adopted. There
being no further business, meeting
adjourned. J. F. RE AME,

A Friend's Tribute.
April 23rd, 1895.
Editor The Manning Times:-This
morning on my way down street I
was grieved to hear of the death of
my life-long friend, Joseph Sprott,
Sr., and determined that I would
write you something about his life a3
coming directly under my observa
tion. First thought about my de
parted friend was, where has he
gone? I turned to my Bible and I
find these words, II Samuel, 22nd
chapter, 20-25 verses: "He brought
me forth also into a large place: He
delivered me, because He delighted in
me. The Lord rewarded me according
to my righteousness: according to
the cleanliness of my hands hath he
recompensed me, for I have kept the
ways of the Lord, and have not wick
edly depart'ed from my God, for all
his judgments were before me: and
as for His statutes, I did not depart
from them, I was also upright before
Him, and have kept myself from
mine iniquity, therefore the Lord
hath recompensed me according to
my righteousness, according to my
cleanliness in his eye-sight."
In my early boy-hood days my
father's farm and his adjoined each
other, and they were friends. In the
year 1861 when our country was call
ing for her sons to go to the front, I
well remember the smiling face of my
friend in urging us on, and when we
were about to leave home. we had
the grasp of his hand and a "God
bless you, boys. I will see that your
families do not suffer while you are
away." This made such an impres
sion on our minds, knowing that he
meant what he said. When we got
to the city of Charleston, I, as orderly
sergeant, drew the company in line
under the railroad shed, and there it
was proposed that we should adopt
the name "Sprott Guards" in honor
to our friend, Joseph Sprott. The
newspapers next, day said that we
had taken the name of "Spratt
Guards" in honor of Col. Spratt, of
Charleston, but next day the correc
tion was made so that every one
might know who we intended to
honor. Many a one can testify that
he carried that promise out and con
tinued through a long and useful life
to assist not only the Sprott Guards
and their families, but every one who
came within his reach. At our last
reunion (and he was always there)
many of my comrades know how
generous he was in relieving one of
our number who was then passing
under the rod and soon to pass over
the river to rest under the shade of
the trees. I could continue to write
about him, but will leave it to others
who are better able than I am to tell
of his life. I shall always thank God
for the life of his servant, Joseph
Sprott, and try and profit by his pre
cept and example, so that I, too,
shall be ready when summoned to
meet Him, and shall, with my dear,
departed friend, praise the Lamb for
My ideal of a soldier was Robert E.
Lee, and that of a Christian citizen,
Joseph Sprott, Sr., and feel that I

with the following lines:

Is to have been a hero."

THE STATEMENTS REFUTED.
9tory of Colored Suffering in ralmetto's
Sea Islands Sternly and Rigidly Dealed.
CHARLESTON, S. C., April 19.-Several
days ago a letter written by Mrs. R. C.
Mather, principal of the Mather Indus
trial school for colored youths, was
published in the New York Evening
Post and New York Tribune represent
ing that the colored people on the
South Carolina sea island were suffer
ing greatly for the lack of food and
clothing. They were represented in a
starving condition and a most urgent
appeal was made to the charitably dis
posed Northern people for assistance.
The matter was referred to Colonel T.
G. White, correspondent for the News
and Courier for investigation. Colonel
I cannot. under the circumstances allow
these statements and appeals for help to go
unchallanged. and must say that any further
attempt to extort more charity from the big
hearted people who may be open to such ap
peals would be an imposition upon their benev
olence. as no unnsual distress exists.
True it is that the past winter was an ex
ceptionally trying one, and more so In compar
ison to the winter that preceded it, when even
the Red Cross. who received tons and
tons of clothing for distribution, must
have thought it unnecessary to distribute
but a very small portion of the goods they re
ceived among the beneficiaries for whom they
were intended, and that by far the greater
bulk of warm and more comfortable clothing
was, after being sorted, replaced and reshipped
to their farm and establishment in Michigan.
I am quite positive that there is not and can
not be any starvation or undue suffering among
them attributable to the remote effect of the
August cyclone, the traces of which are now
almost obliterated. I guarantee that there is
far less destitution and suffering in the genial
climate of this section, either for want of food
or deficiency of clothing, than can be found in
the frigid north and northwest among the
To be sure there is great depression in all
branches of labor and employment here as
elsewhere, but the wonderful resources of this
mild and genial climate and generous and pro
lific soil is proof against-any such extravagant
statements of squalor, starvation and want as
is attempted to be depicted by these writers,
who having been responded to in their appeals,
can now have nothing but selfish and merce
nary consideration to prompt them in holding
on the teat that afforded so much of the milk of
human kindness, the quality of which being
strained would bring cream to the top, but
leave only clabber at the bottom of the bowl.
THE MOTHER DREW A PISTOL
Parental Objection to a Marriage Nearly
Precipitates a Tragedy.
BAMBERG, S. C., April 22.-There was
a romantic love affair up in the factory
village yesterday afternoon in which
the old lady wat not outwitted as is so
often the case. Sol Goodwin was en
gaged to marry Miss Ella Jones, a pre;
ty young blonde of fourteen years. The
old folks objected and they were to
elope yesterday afternoon. Sol went
for his girl who true to her word left
her home to run away with him. The
girl's mother was too alert for the
couple, however, and rushing out in
the street just in the nick of time
seized Ella and had a hand-to-hand tus
sle with Goodwin who persistantly re
fused to leave and did not until the old
lady stepped back and drawing out a
38 calibre revolyer and placing it to
Goodwin's head demanded the young
man to leave the premises under pen
alty of having a hole bored through
his brain, which he reluctantly but
wisely did. The affair attracted a
large crowd who witnessed the amus
ing but almost tragic fight.

liquor shipped here to him, and it can
not be.interfered with by any one, even
after it is delivered-till May 2. Those
who do this will of course run the risk
of subsequent prosecution, if the in
junction is not made permanent. Ev
erybody is discussing the situation.
Governor Evans, the chairman of the
state board of control gave the follow
ing statement last night which makes
the situation doubly interesting:
All the quirks and gamins have tried their
hands on the dispensary, and now the little
snappers have taken charge of it and attempt
ing to attack. There is only one point in the
case. and that is: When does liquor arrive in
the state ? The matter has already been be

opinion-and I suppose this is an effort to fix
the other member of the United States court
Judge Goff's injunction will not be regarded
by me in any sense of the word. It makes no
difference what papers he serves, we will con
tinue to seize every gallon of whiskey that ar
rives within the state, and I construe the word
'arrive' to-mean when it gets within the bord
ers of the state. and will continue to construe
it till the United States supreme court holds
otherwise.' If necessary, an extra force of con
stables will be employed to take charge of any
liquor dealers who may feel encouraged by
Judge Goff's action. Any liquor brought into
this state in violation of the dispensary law
by Judge.Goff, Samps Pope or Fitz Caldwell
will be as promptly seized and confiscated as
i it were brought in by Jim Dunbar.
Goff's Second Issue.
CourmmrA, S. C., April 23.-Another
sensation has been created by the pub
lication of the fact that Judge Goff, of
the United States circuit court had is
mred another injunction against the
state authorities on the ground that
the registr'ation act of 1882 was uncon
stitutional, there was sufficient fraud
t the polls in the election last fall to
itiate the.calling of the constitutional
onvention,. that there was then a con
spiracy begveen Tillman, Evans and
thers to' commit frauds; that the
greement between Tillman, Evans,
Barnwell, Hemphill ane others was a
onspiracy to defraud the negro of his
ight of suffrage; that Evans as gov
rnor had sought to carry out these
onspiracies by removing notaries for
aking affidavits from negroes; that
he illegal acts of supervisers of regis
ration were part of the same conspir
cy, etc. The important portion of the
>rder reads-as follows:
It is ordered that the defendants, John Gary
