Trying to Create a Prejudice.
It is simply outrageous the way
certain newspapers are endeavoring
to create a bitter feeling against the
State constables. Last Friday morn
ing the officers ran upon a band
of moonshiners near Spartanburg,
and, when a surrender was demanded
of them, they opened tire on the con
stables, shooting one of them down
and wounding another. The con
stables, although wounded, returned
the fire and killed two of the moon
shiners, while the others escaped,
leaving behind them a lot of contra
The newspapers against the dis
pensary law are severely criticising
the constables, and are actually en
deavoring to convict them of murder
in the eyes of the world for no other
reason than they are State officers
enforcing the dispensary law.
In their zeal to blacken these offi
cers certain newspapers are over
reaching themselves, as they usually
do, and are making themselves ridic
ulous. They would create the im
pression that the constables killed
two inoffensive citizens who were
riding on the public highway; that
these "good citizens" made no effort
to resist the officers, and, in fact,
these "good citizens" were asleep in
their wagons when shot, and that
the constables wounded one another.
These papers agree that Constable
Pettigrew was shot down before any
other gun was fired, and- that the
constables were armed with double
barreled shotguns. w h il e their
wounds were inflicted with rifle balls;
yet, after so stating the facts, they
purposely twist the affair so as to
make political capital.
These "good citizens," who were
so inhumanely butchered by the con
stables according to certain news
papers, are men with noble records.
One, whose name is Fisher, has
killed eight men, has had three
brothers killed in the moonshine
whisky wars. Durham, the other,
has a similar bloody record, and in
the face of all this, together with the
fact that the constables had been
shot down before any of their own
guns were fired, the opposition news
papers would stir up a feeling against
the constables for the sake of po
Tickling the Republicans.
The Charleston News and Courier
and the Columbia State are very
severe on the people of Edgefield for
refusing to allow Col. J. J. D.argan
to speak in their town last week.
Their denunciation of those people
is only buncombe and only intended
to tickle the ear of a few people in
the North, who still believe the negro
vote will again be of use.
If the people of Edgefield did not
want Dargan to preach his offensive
doctrines in their midst they had a
right to inform him of that fact, and
when he undertook to defy those
people and go there anyway, it is no
wonder they became incensed and
showed a determination not to allow
him to scatter his poisonous heresies
We think the people of Edgefield
only played into Dargan's hand ;
they gave him just what he wanted,
and he wll now fill his Boston ad
mirers with his tale of woe, and they
in return will send him evidences of
their appreciation for his heroic ef
forts in behalf of their black pets.
The best way to treat Col. Dargan
is to quietly let him alone. If he
goes to a town and the citizens do
not care to hear him, let them stay
away and let him talk to the winds.
If they adopt such a course Colonel
Dargan will soon tire of playing to
the Boston abolition galleries, as his
audience will first tire of him and
put a brake on sending him a "five
years' subscription in advance" for
the Freeman. He will peter out as
a liberty manufacturer, and the
chances are he will return to his first
love-viz., chasing "niggers" over
the country and pulling their leaders
from the platforms to prevent them
from speaking, congregating and to
hold political meetings, a right
which Colonel Dargan did not think
they should exercise as long as the
white people had a little office in
sight for him.
A Grand Showmng.
The official report of the State
dispensary for the quarter ending
April 30, 1895, is now out and shows
that the institution has done an im
mense amount of business.
The report shows from whom the
stock was bought, the number of
gallons and the price paid. It also
shows clearly the receipts and dis
bursements, and to a cent how this
immense business stood at the end of
-The assets of the concern is shown
to be $254,:321.42, and out of the
$50,000- appropriated by the Legis
lature about $19,000 remains yet to
be paid back, but, while such is the
case, the dispensary has to its credit
in the State treasury and in bank
$75,523.75, showing a fine, healthy
business condition. The legislative
committee that investigated this in
stitution, in speaking of the many
improvements put in operation by
Colonel F. M. Mixson, the State Com
missioner, also compliments him and
his chief clerk, Mr. Seth W. Scruggs,
who devised the system, for the per
feet and excellent manner of book
keeping, and they conclude their
elaborate report with the following
statement : "Under the present
management the affairs of the dis
ensrry appear to be managed upon
most intelligent business principles.
The financial showing is satisfactory
and reflects credit upon the Commis
siner ndr his corps of assistants."
Charleston Spite Work.
The grand jury of Charleston dis
played its prejudice to the dispensa
ry law to such an extent that they
found "No Bill" on all of the indict
ments handed them for violation of
the dispensary law, and in some of
the cases the testimony for the State
was positive, and they went further:
they charged and presented Trial
Justice Gaillard, who sent the cases
up, with drunkenness and recom
mended his removal.
In this wonderful malicious pre
sentment they say they have been
unable to get any evidence to sub
stantiate their charge against the
trial justice, but that they are satis
fied the charge is true. Had they
told the truth they would have said,
the reason his removal was asked
was that Gaillard is a Reformer and
sends whiskey cases to the upper
court whenever there is any evidence
to warrant his course.
Such conduct on the part of a
grand jury surely is not to be com
mended by the good citizens of
Charleston, and they must know
that such folly and narrow-minded
prejudice is doing the "City-by-the
Sea" no good, but that it is arraying
a class of people from whom it gets a
considerable portion of its income,
The only class in Charleston inter
ested in keeping up the war on the
dispensary is the rip-roaring ward
politician and slum-keeper, but it
seems to us that the business men
and other good citizens could see
that the city is being damaged every
time such men succeed in thwarting
the law of the State.
Editor Williams has begun his pe
culiar method of attempting to win
the fight for the constitutional

influences they would surely win,

There is more catarrh in this section of
the country than aWl other diseases put - to
gether, and until the last few years was
supposed to be incurable. For a great
any years doctors pronounced it a local
disease, and prescribed local remedies, and
by constantly failing to cure with local
treatment pronounced it incurable. Science
has proven eatarrh to be a constitutional
disease and therefore requires constitution
al treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manu
factured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo,
Ohio, is the only constitutional cure on the
market. It is taken internally in doses
from 10 drops to a teaspoonful. It acts di
rectly on the blood and mucous surfaces of
the system. They offer one hundred dol
lars for any case it fails to cure. Send for
circulars and testimonials. Address,

The Conservatives Trying to Resur
reet a Political Corpse.
Greenville Mountaineer (Con.).
The holding of political conferences in
South Carolina seems to have no ending.
Twenty-one gentlemen came together the
other day without previous warning to the
public, and put in motion a set of machin
ery which no donbt they believe will reg
ulte.affairs in tbis State.
They resurrected a political corpse of the
last camnpaign and undertook to revive its
buried energies, but they are dressing it
up in new apparel, hoping thereby to de
ceive the people.
Last fall, it will be remembered, there
were several conferences in the interest of
Senator Butler, and tnese finally culmi
nated in the skeleton of an organization
which gave very few signs _of life and
eventually sank of its own weight.
Mr. J. I-. Carson of Spartanburg was
made chairman of its executive committee,
and this was the nucleus for the conference
which met with closed doors and windows
at the Hotel Jerome on the 21st inst.
The session was protracted and at times
stormy, which proves that all was not
serene and lovely on the inside. The ad
dress to the people shows on its face that
the extremists did not dictate its com
plexion, and yet enough is there to give
them ennouragemient and hope.
The tighters want to go much further at
this time, but they are held in check, and
it is not stated whether or not they pro.
poe to keep within present bounds.
We are not at all in sympathy with this
movement, nor do we believe that a ma
jority of the Conservatives favor an organ
ization of this kind.
These gentlenen are not authorized to
speak for the thirty thousand voters who
came together in support of the Sheppard
and Orr ticket three years ago, and there
has been no authoritative utterance since
that time to warrant the conclusion that the
thirty thousand desire a [actional fight in
the election of delegates to the Constitu
tional convention. On the contrary, there
are abundant evidences that the majority
of them wish an end to the strife and con
fusion in our politics. But the Twenty
One seem to think otherwise, and the most
of them have been hankering after a fight
for a long time, so that we may resign our
selves to the inevitable and let the test be
We do not believe that ten thousand
white men will be enrolled in this move
ment, and there is no sign given among
the leaders that they expect a greater nuim
ber with them.
The bulk of the Conservatives will re
main either inactive (as duiring the last
campaign) or else they will take piosition
against this movement, which can not com
mend itself to the judgment and approval
of men who wish to terminate the useless
contention in this State.
A few newspapers and politicians are
keeping~ up the agitation on either side,
but the masses of the people are not eon
cerred with the schemes and plans so much
in vogue with the agitators. But they
must not rest supinely while these plans
are being put into shape for another fierce
conflict, and it is the duty of every man to
let it be known just where he stands.
Conservatives who do not wish to per
petuate strife and dissension and who pre
fer that the white people come together in
selecting the best men to frame a constitu
tion for the State, must not lose the oppor
tunity of placing themselves on record
against this new movement.

P.is, July 2.-Fir! started in the
military eqnipment works in the Rue
Rocheouart yesterday and spread so
rapidly that the eimployes -vere driven
quiclhiy into the street. The supply of
n ater was insuflicient for the use of
the firemen and the flames extended to
adjacent buildings in Rue Petrella and
Rue Gondoreit. in the latter destroying
an immense building devoted to the
menifacture of gas metres.
The flames spread with the greatest
rapidity, and the employes were quick
lv di-:en into the street. The firemen
were promptly at the scene. but their
efi'orts to subdue the flames were ren
dered fruitless by a scarcity in the
i water supply. The fire extended to
dings on Rue Petrelle to the north
and Rue Coudorect to the south.
The immense building on tne latter
street devoted to the manufacture of
gas metres was destroyed. Altogether
eight buildings. including several
dwellings were burned. It was not
until late yesterday evening that the
fire was extinguished. The loss is fully
:,-2;0,000 francs. Immense crowds
gathered in the vicinity to watch the
conflagration and it was necessary to
call upon the troops to aid the police in
cordoning the street. The firemen and
dozens of citizens were severely hurt.
M. Leygues, minister of the interior,
visited the injured in the hospital and
presented to one of the firemen a medal
for bravery. President Faure has do

SAx FrANCIsCO, June 29.-The fire
last night destroyed four blocks in the
heart of the manufacturing district of
the city, iuvolving a loss of $1,500,000
in property and sacrificing one life. It
raged unchecked for over four hours,
feeding on a succession of wooden
buildings and might have been beyond
control for many hours longer but for
lucky change in the wind.
The burned areas bounded by Towns
end, Bryant, Third and Fifth streets.
The flames made occasional invasions
outside these limits but only to the ex
tent of a few houses.
A liss Gilroy was burned to death.
This was the only fatality reported.
She was attempting tosave some of her
belongings and was covered with burn
ing oil. During the progress of the
fire a steam boiler exploded in a
French laundry. The force of the ex
plosion sent about half a ton of boiler
flving through the building. A piece
lodged in Shirley's hotel. So great
was the shock that all the windows not
destroyed by the heat were blown into
the streets. There was a thrilling scene
while the convent and parochical
school attached to St. Rose's church
were in flames. A few moments before
the roof felk in a boy was seen at one
of the upper windows. A cry of hor
ror wecnt up from the crowd and the
firemen yelled to the boy to jump. A
blaniket was held out, but just then the
flames and smoke cnveloped the build

in with a cr-ash. Everybody thought
the boy was lost, but he jumped into
