VOL. NEAL DEFENDS HIMSELF.
During the recent Senatorial con
test it will be remembered Candidate
Evans made the charge that he placed
Colonel V. A. Neal, Superintendent.
of the State penitentiary in the Kee
lev Institute to be treated for the
wiskev -abit and that he had tele
graphed for Colonel Cunningham, of
Chester, to take charge. Colonel
Neal waited autil all of the political
exoiteaent passe'l over and in his
us. d basin sS-like manner proceed
ed to pro e the ex-governor a twist
er of facts, and after submiting his
proof he denounces John Gary Evans
a slanderoius liar.
A :rat many allowances should be
muade . what is said during a heated
caimpaigiu,out when a man maliciously
seeks to destroy another by wanton
falsehool it is unexcusable. Gover
nor Evans said also that Colonel Neal
shooid be wea ing stripes, and he
nevcr did s.Ly wh t for; but when
John T. Duncan said that John Gary
Evans should wear stripes he said it
was for pilfering the people's money.
We did not take any stock in Dun
can's charges, we believed them false
and time has convinced us they were
without foundation, and we have no
idea now, that Governor Evans can
establish one scintilla of proof to
back up his assertion which reflects
upon Col. Neal's integrity.
Colonel WV. A. Neal did what many
others would not have the moral
courage to do. and that was, when
slandered, to wait for the people to
cool down before he made any at
tempt to exonerate hituself. He did
not deny going to Keeley, but like a
manly man he came out and told the
whole story of his affliction and back
ed it up by his attending physicians
and other honorable gentlemen.
Now since the matter has been drag
ged before the public it has con
vinced us, we. were mistaken in
our estimate of John Gary Evans,
and that instead of his being the
high, broad-minded man who has
been badly treated, we have been
converted to the belief that he is nar
row, selfish, spiteful and to accomz
plish his own advancement would
slander an opponent,and thepeople of
South Carolina are fortunate in their
thorough repudiation of him.
We sincerely hope the next legisla
ture will repeal the act that gives
Clarendon a two weeks fall term of
court. When this proposition was
first mooted-we opposed it upon the
ground that it was not necessary;
nothing has come up since which has
changed our mind, but on the con
trary we are more thoroughly con
vinced that we were correct in our
position. The people are not, ben
efited by this extra week, a few liti
gants may be, but that is no reason
why the masses should be taxed to
keep up a ponderous law machinery.
If our legislators who are so solici
tous for litigants will make those lit.
igants pay the court's expenses and
thus relieve the tax-payers it will be
all right, b at under existing con
ditions it is a burden that should be
The Charleston Post, whenever it
gets cornered, puts on a very conde
scending air and charitably mentions
Tii: TInEs. However, this does not
do away with the fact that the Post
and other anti-dispensary newspapers
have done lots of free advertising for
the original package shops, not in
their regular advertising columns,
but in a more desirable position, the
local or news columns. We need no
better pr. of of this assertion t han a
perusal of the file of the Post since
the first original pachage sho-p opened.

The first case ready for trial was
against Gus Deas. This defendant was
charged with breaking into -the ,r,
of the late W. P. Peagler, at .:1:a11
and stealing therefrom a quantity 'f
dry goods, shoes and clothiolg.
amounting to about seventy dollars.
The testimony had not procwea-d r-r
when Mr. E G. Barrinean, o!:e of ii
jurymen, took ill and the procecd
ings came to a sudden halt, a recess
was taken until yesterday m r:in;
when the trial was resume,1. The c:se
was a long and tetious one an-I re
suited in a verdict of not guilty.
The next case was agai'st Ma.,

Io view of this con'dit:ou of afairs, a
number of imrnitaut merchants and su
gar planters of Spanish origin, in con
junction with several Cubans of promi
nence, have been holding secret meet
ings and corresponding with people in
various parts of the island with the ob
ject of ascertaining the views of com
mercial and planting communities in
Pinar del Rio. Havana, Matanzas and
Santa Clara provinces as to the future
for Cuoi Imost likely to further their
interests and those of the island in gen
eral It is expected that the majority of
the renlies will be favorable to annexa
tion of Cuba to the United States, as the
Washington government alone, appa
rently, is able to guarantee peace in
Cuba and the protection of life and
Cuban Committee Coming.
As soon as it is ascertained that this
element of persons appealed to are in
favor of annexation, a committee will
be sent to the United States, with in
structions to lay the case of Cubaclearly
before the business men of prominence
in the United States, and ask the latter
to unity with the business men of Cuba
in anppaication to the Washington gov
ernmesnt, aslingt the United States, in
view of the failure of the Conservatives
to suprress the insurrection by force of
arms, and poin:ing out the 1mpossi
biiity of the Liborais ending the war by
establishin, a: autonomous form of
government, to bring about the annexar
tion of Cuba to the United States.
The plan of Senor Sagasta, the new
Spauish premier, to give autonomy to
Cub.:. is far fro:a giving eatisfaction
and has greatly inrcreased the feeling of
disco::tent. The Autonomist party, it
is pointed out., exists only in name, the
actual majority of the autonomists be.
ing in the insargent ranks, and, with
the exception possibly of Senor Montoro
ad a few otier prominent sutono
n:sts, the mas:es of the party are in
sympatov with the insurgents. Conse
quently it will be seen the Spanish gov
ernimen t, wicnh has consulted Senor
M '2toro on the subject, is finding great
dilliculty in obtaiuing even the sugges
tion of the names of autonomists to fill
olices under an autonomist form of
Anucious F'or An tnex:stlan.
It would be fo~prudent, it is added, to
give such offices to the party known as
the R.eformists. as the more influential
Spaniards hatte them, and the adoption
of such a pohicy would mnean rioting and
eveni worse. Besides, the masses of the
