SluM-Keeper siepperd a Lariyr.
Shepperd, the Columbia slum
keeper, who was sentenced by Judge
Townsend to the penitentiary for
violating an order of the court, was
treated the same way as every other
prisoner in tha- institution-his hair
was clipped and he was put in
The NNews and Courier and other
whisky advocates are terribly worked
up; they think it is an outrage that
a man sent to the penitentiary for
violating the whisky law should have
the same treatment as other pris
oners. We suppose the anti-dispen
saryites would have a man sent to the
penitentiary for violating the dis
pensary law, taken out every after
noon for a carriage ride and be fur
nished with all the latest periodicals,
magazines, newspapers and works of
art ; that the pfison authorities
should place a few fellow-con
victs at his disposal to wait upon
him, and furnish him with various
Anti-dispensary newspapers like
the News and Courier, the Columbia
State and their little yelpers through
out the State, are raising a big racket
over this man Shepperd, and who is
he ! He is a notorious law-breaker,
and at the time of his arrest was
running a dirty dive, slum, hell-hole,
where the vilest of the vile- both
male and female, regardless of color
congregated nightly, and from that
reeking pest-hole a great portion of
the debauchery, house-breaking,
sand-bagging, pickpocketing and
other crimes which fill up the court
dockets of Columbia eminated; then
for newspapers pretending to be
working for the upbuilding of a
moral sentiment, to hold up their
hands in holy horror and defend
such a creature-for political pur
poses-because this father of crime
is incarcerated in the penitentiary, is
a sin and a shame.
We will venture the assertion that
not one of the editors who now pre
tend to be so indignant because
Shepperd was put in the peniten
tiary by our State courts, but who
clapped their hands with joy when
the State constables were locked up
by the United States courts, would
be seen coming out of Shepperd's
place of business for half
their incomes, and we doubt if
any of these editors would speak to
the Shepperd if they met him on the
street; yet they WILL denounce, for
politics sake, the State's officers for
attempting to rid a decent com-'
munity of a pest which, if not re
moved, will do untold damage.
We do not know whether the high
est courts will sustain the law under
which Judge Townsend sentenced
Shepperd ; but, as long as the statute
is not declared unconstitutional, the
State courts will sentence those con
victed before them to the State peni
tentiary, and the authorities at the
State prison will show no discrim
ination. Once a man is within the
walls of the penitentiary as a con
vict he is a convict, whether sent
there for riot, theft or selling whisky,
and if a man does not want to go
there he must not violate the law.
The News and Courier has more
grounds for raising a rumpus in the
McAllister case than in the Shepperd
ase ; but, while the McAllister case
should be a stench in the nostrils of
all decent people, that newspaper
silently lets it alone because it has
no factional significance, and the
morals of the community is not what
it is after right now.
More can be accomplished toward
wiping out factional feeling in this
county by the Conservatives going
out to vote than all the conventions
and peace conferences put together.
Now, let every white man go out
next Tuesday and cast his vote.
The Columbia State says that the
Sumter Herald is a Reform news
paper and the Register puts in the
Conservative column. Neither are
right and both are wrong ; the Sum
ter Herald belongs to neither faction,
but occupies a high seat on the po
Those of our readers who have
fiends that do not take the paper
should inform them of the primary
to be held next Tuesday and see that
they turn out to vote. A white man
can vote in any club in the county,
whether his name appears on the
club roll or not.
.The. editor of the Columbia State
is fighting hard to induce people to
stay away front the Democratie
..priary, but his efforts will be in
vahi. The wVhiite meni in Richland
and throughout the State can not be
persuaded from their duty by those
who have been whipped and disap
pointed at every stage of the polit
ieal game. The Columbia State is
such a Jonah that even the Colored
Ministerial Union had to break loose
Both Sides Should be Heard.
It will be remembered that last
week we sent out a supplement sheet
on one side of which was literature
advocating what the Wall street ii
nanciers call "Sound Money" doc
trine. We plainly stated that we
were sending out these sheets be
cause they were advocating the
"other side" and that we would give
our readers an opportunity of seeing
We want our readers to be educated
on the financial questions because
the money problem will be the main
issue in the next campaign. If those
advocating a single gold standard
are right and their doctrine is the
right one for the people to embrace,
we would be doing a grave injustice
were we to keep it from our readers
simply because we do not see that
This narrow-minded spirit of only
showing up the bright side of our
own views will not properly educate
the people, and in our humble opin
ion we can have more influence with
the thinking public when we make
our argument after showing both
sides of the controversy. When a
question is being discussed and only
one side is heard an intelligent opin
ion cannot be formed, because the
case is not fully stated.
The Columbia Register of yester
day erpresses regrets that we should
send out "gold-bug poison." Fortu
nately we have breadth of mind suf
ficient to be willing to hear and read
both sides of the financial question,
and while we favor free silver and
believe the hope of the country lies
in the national legislature enacting
some law by which life may again be
breathed into our financial system,
which now lies mangled and bleeding,
yet we feel that the question is a dif
ficult one and open to reason.
If the "gold-bugs" have right and
justice on their. side their reasoning
should take root and grow, and on
the other hand if the friends of
silver cannot get up sufficient argu
ment to sustain their side it should
fall as meritlesb.
The Register and the TIEs differ
in that the former is only willing to
show up its own side, while the latter
is willing to show both sides and at
the same time be able to take a de
cided position for one or the other.
When the proposition from the
"New York Sound Money Committee"
came to us we were inclined to reject
it, but when we considered the im
portance of the question at issue, we
came to the conclusion that our in
fluence would be more effective when
we placed both sides in the hands of
The "gold-bug" literature will be
followed by "free silver at a ratio of
16 to 1," and the one containing the
most convincing argument will have
its effect with the people. Until con
vinced to the contrary, the TIMES is
for free coinage of silver at a ratio of
1 to 1, be-lieving it is the country's
Conservatives Lose an Opportunity.
The delegates to the Constitutional
convention from Clarendon will be
four Reformers; not that the Re
formers refused to divide, but be
cause the Conservatives would not
put forward a candidate.
It is a known fact that the Re
formers throughout the county were
anxious to vote for one Conservative,
and it is possible that two could
have been elected, but they would
not give the people an opportunity
to vote for them.
Our Conservative friends can not
now complain, and, as they would
not take advantage of the oppor
tunity offered them, they should go
to the polls on the 80th instant and
vote anyway. This they will do if
they are sincere in wanting to see
the people together again. The fact
of their not having men of their
faction to vote for, but turning out
and casting their votes in the pri
mary will display a spirit that will
be bound to have a good effect in
Conservatives, the matter of hav
ing peace in the future is in your
hands, and if you show by your con
dut that you want strife allayed,
the Reformers will be affected by the
spirit, and an era of peace will set
in. On the other hand, if you sulk and
stay away from the polls, it will have
the effect of widening the breach
now existing, and in the next cam
paign the people will be further
apart than ever.
Whoever is nominated in the
coming primary will be elected, even
should they have opposition. There
is no doubt about that, and we can
safely say that as far as the Con
servatives in this county are con
erned, no opposition will come from
Sumter Reformers' Bad Breaik.
The Sumter Reformers rejected the
division proposition made to them
by the Conservatives, and by doing
so made a grave mistake. In that
county the vote between the two
factions is very close at best, and the
faction heretofore having the ma
jority offered, for the sake of peace,
a division of delegates. This shou-ld
have been accepted in the same
spirit that prompted the offer.
Unfortunately for Sumter's Re
formers they have poor advisors, and
the consequence is that Sumter is
lost to the Reform faction by bad
Now that the Reformers in Sumter'
have declined the compromise we ex
pet two tickets to be in the field in
the general election unless the Con
servatives go into the Democratic
primary and nominate their men,
whicn they can do without any
trouble whatever, because many Re
formers- who disapprove of the action
of their own faction--will vote in the
primary for good men from the Con
servative faction rather than support
hot-headed men of their own fac
We had hoped that the Reformers
would accept the compromise offer
of the Conservatives so as to prevent
ontention and strife in our neigh
boring county, and thereby have the
Reform faction of Sumter repre
sented in the convention ; but, as it
is, the Reformers will not be repre
sented, and do not deserve to be as a

Every white mian should go to the

Joe ventured to peep down into a deep
ravine we were crossing, and -e!led out,
"Oh, I see a billy goat and a playhouse."
Out went every head, and mine, too. It
was a cow with a bell on and a mountain
but with the family seated on the piazza.
It was so far below us that everything ap
peared in "lilliputian" style.
We got a glimpse of Saluda as we
passed. I was there in '82. The familiar
scenes brought recollections of happy girl
hood--free from care and responsibility,
no cloud had ever darkened the sunshine
of the heart. In one brief decade how
many sad and crushing sorrows have en
tered in the retros.ect. From girlhood,
"Backward, turn backward, oh time, in thy
iake me a child again, just for one night."
The natural scenery throughout the en
tire route was beautifully grand.
On reaching the city we were transferred
to the electric cars, and were carried about
a mile up into theftity.
Asheville is situated in the very bosom
of the mountains, 18 miles west of the
Blue Ridge. The French Broad and the
Swannanoa rivers meander on either side
of the city. No pictare nor description

reached the summit Bishop asked, "Where
is the mountain we were climbing ?" We
found it much harder to descend ; each in
turn had a tumble over the rocks and
After viewing every public building and
point of interest in the city we drove ont
to Vanderbilt's Biltmore. It is five uiles
out. The grand scenery presented one
beautiful panorama after another. The
wheat was being cut and shocked in the
fields. The deep and vivid greens of the
mountain sides contrasted beautifully with
the yellow harvest. The sides and tops of
the 'mountains are cultivated, Some of the
rows curve like half moons, and it seems
impossible for a horse to circle around in
a field among so many rocks.
The Vanderbilt estate contains nearly
10,000 acres, besides his hunting park
covers 81,000. We obtained a pass per
mitting us to ride over his estate. There
are about twelve miles of brick-paved and
macademized roads, Our patss was coumn
tersigned af three different places during
the drive ; this is necessary on account or
imposters, who have stolen so many of the
growing flowers and evergreens.
The palace will be completed in October.
It is built of marble style of the French
Renaissance, 375 feet long arid 150 feet
wide. Busts and statues are placed in
every nook and corner. Bishop says he
would be arraid to walk about that house
at night. The gardens within the granite
wall are handsomely arranged. The nat

To the Voter, of Clarendonl County:
I aninounce myself a candidate for the
Constitutional convention, and in dtoing so
I will briefly state that I am in favor of
better facilities for tbe free education of
our white children. I will opposc with all
my might the abolition of the homestead
protection. I favor the curtailment of of
fices and I favor the engrafting into the
constitution a clause that wilt make white
man'ls rule a certainty without conflictingi
with the Federal constitution. I am a
Democrat, and a such I become a cantdi.
date pledging myself to abide the result
of the primlary and to support its noini
nees. Respectfally. J. W. KENEv.
