LET JUSTICE BE DOSE.
We have recently given our views
on the election of judges soon to be
had by the General Assembly and as
the matter is of great importance to
the people we think it proper to ex
tend those views by condemning a
practice that has recently come to our
The office of circuit judge is not
only a high and honorable one, but
it is one that should be filled with the
finest ability and the highest integ
rity; no man should be selected to
occupy the bench on account of fac
tional differences, nor should a man
be placed upon the bench as a re
ward for political service, and when
we see a man resorting to a system
atic method of electioneering to pro
cure such a position, we must think
he does not appreciate the importance,
and the dignity of such a high trust.
The office of judge is the worthy am
bition of any lawyer, but his stand
ing in his profession and the esteem
of his brethern of the Bar should be
such that his qualifications are known
by those who have selection to make.
To flood the country with circular
letters begging for votes is beneath
the dignity of a man who has the re
quisite qualifications to sit in judge
ment upon the rights and the prop
ert' of his fellowman, and when we
saw the circular issued by Mr. T. W.
Bacot, of Charleston, we could not
endorse the methods adopted by him.
The idea of an aspirant for a judge
ship getting down to the level of the
politician is appalling. What has be
come of the reverence for the judicial
ermine? Has the judiciary been placed
ini the catagory of political offices, to
be traded and manipulated by the
skillful hands of scheming politicians?
It begins to look that way when men
have so little regard for the scared
ness of the position as to go about
soliciting for votes.
We have never heard of such a
method in this State before, and
there is no better way of stopping
it, than bypl*i 'tstamp of dis
np ali t and instead of selec
a man for the bench who has
resorted to the office-seeker's tactics,
offer the ermine as a reward Ifor high
character, learning and patriotism.
We could, if we had the selection
of such, place the judicial ermine up
on the shoulders of a Mitchell, a
Barker, a Lord, of the Charleston
Bar, or if we had a personal prefer
ence, James F. lIziar, of the Orange
brg Bar. The latter gentleman
would at once be approved of by the
people at large. He occupied the
bench one term with honor to him
self andhis State and it was only in
the heat of political excitement that
his removal came about. Judge Izlar
is universally beloved throughout
South Carolina and we believe he
was one of the best judges in the
State. He was a'tle. learned and al
ways a courteous gentleman. In our
opinion the General Assembly could
not do a better act than electing for
judge of the first circuit General
James F. fIar. His services to his
country in times of war and peace
should not be forgotten. Take his
record while in command at Fort
Fisher when that desperate fight was
made and it is enough to merit the
affections of the people. Then in the
trying times of 1876, when this State
was relieved of that horde of op
pressors, much of the responsibility
was upon the shoulders of Gen. Izlar
who was then our State chairman,
and to his magnificient management
can, in a very large measure, he at
tributed the overthrow of the Repub
lican party and the restoration of
home rule for South Carolina. If
Judge Benet is to be defeated upon
the ground that he was imported to
the first circuit, and that importation
was wrong, then right the wrong by
returning the ermine to a member of
the Bar of the first circuit and by re
placing it upon the shoulders of
Judge James F. Izlar from whom it
was taken without cause.

There are a class of citizens whose
idea of the present is so dim that
they actually do not realize their ex
istance in this day . of progressive
movement; such men live entirely in
the past, and when any attempt is
made to create a change it breaks
them all to pieces. Once upon a time,
in the history of Manning, the pro
prietor of a newspaper was forced
to place himself under obligations to
merchants for a little patronage in
order that he might, on a Saturday
carry home to his family a few gro
ceries. The result was that his news
paper was not the public educator it
should have been, nor did it inspire
confidence; instead of being a me
dium of free thought, it was a truck
ling slave of the man who furnished
the most credit, or groceries. A
change has taken place in the news
paper business, as well as all other
branches, and to day Manning has a
newspaper with a standard second to
no county paper in the State; it is
free and untrammelled, under no ob
ligations to a soul and every dollar
in patronage it receives, it gives the
patron his money's worth. The fact
of a man spending a few dollars a
year in our advertising columns does
not place us under any more obliga
tions to him than he is to us when
we buy goods over his counters,
therefore, we want it distinctly under
stood that while we are always glad
to do business with any of our mer
chants we do not want their business
as a charity; we want it as a matter
of business and business alone. We
further want it understood that no
man patronizing this paper shall have
the right to dictate its policy. But
if any of our patrons, whether they
be subscribers or advertisers, differ
with us upon any subject we write
upon, they are invited to and are wel
come to express themselves in these
columns. Any friendly suggestion
is always highly appreciated, but dic
tation will not be desirable as long
as the present management exists.

Col. Neal's Business-lhke Management
Makes The State Farms Blossom
Like a Rose.
We would recommend to the farm
ers of South Carolina a visit to the
State farms in Kerehaw county. They
will there see an object lesson in
practical farming which will benefit
'them to a great extent. It was our
good fortune to accept an invitation
from ColW.A. Neal,superintendent of
the State penitentiary to visit the
State farms, and with a number of
other gentlemnen, we spent a couple
of the pleasantest days of our life,
and it was our intention to write up
the trip, but Major Hal Richardson
has spoken our views so clearly that
we reproduce his remarks, but before
doing so we must supply a missing
link by mentioning the hospitality
shown us by Messrs. Coolley and Ma
gil,and especially the kind attentions
of Mrs. Coolley and her two beautiful
and accomplished daughters, one of
whom we are told, is going to-well
now, we had better wait and see.
Here is what Major Richardson
Col. W. A. Neal, superintendent of
of the State penitentiary, and, by the
by, one of the most thoroughly sys
tematic organizers and managers of
labor I ever saw, invited a party; con
sisting of Secretary of State Tomp
kins, Collector of Internal Revenue
Townes, Editor Appelt, of The Times,
Col. Cole Blease, of Newberry, Mr.
John K. Garnett, of flampton, and
myself, to visit the State farms on the
Wateree, in Kershaw county. We
reached our destination on the Cam
den road at 6 o'clock p. m. Wagons
with comfortable seats, drawn by
sleek, fat mules, driven by clean,
polite convicts, awaited us.
"Some of the party, four in each
wagon, went to the Reed farm and
four others were driven to the De
Saussure farm, where bright and
cheerful fires greeted us and warm
and bountiful suppers were spread.
Before retiring, being imformed by
our host that we should rise early,'
(everything rises early on the State
farms,)we were awakened at 6 o'clock
next morning by a neat, clean con
vict, who, after building our fires and'
furnishing fresh ,water in our cham
bers, soon after announced breakfast,
which was appetizingly served.
"After breakfast we walk-ed over
the premises of the Reed farm, in
spected the stockade, hospital, guardl
quarters, horses, stables, etc. The
tocade is a most substantially built
house, about 20 by 100 feet, thor
oughly ventilated and heated by
three large stoves; the windows large,
outer shutters and iron gratings, all
perfectly secure. The barn is a splen
did three-story building, with thirty
beautiful mules on the ground floor.
Corn and hay, products of the farm,
are on the second floor and 7,000
bushels of oats, all threshed and
clean, on the third floor. Thence we
went to the gin house, where steam
power was riuming gins, with nu
merous bales of cotton lying around.
The well arranged cow stables and
hog lots, the latter filled with 250 or
300 fat hogs, attended by an old
white convict, who seemed contented
"We now proceeded to the De
Saussure farm, two miles off. Here
the p rty got together and rode over
the entire crops and plantations.
Upon these lands I saw 1,300 acres
that will make at the lowest calcula
tion 1,000 bales of cotton, and hun
dreds of acres that will yield from 30
to 60 bushels of corn to the acre, and
other crops in proportion.
"On each farm are an equal num
ber of mules and convicts, 30 of the
former to 75 of the latter. The men
are all well fed and heathlv, and all
agree that they are comfortable and
humanely and kindly treated. I saw
no chains or whips or shackles. The
splendid management is due not only
to Col. Neal, the master head of this
State penitentiary, but also to the
skillful and intelligent assistance ren
dered him by his two lieutenants,
Coolley and Magill, both experienced
planters and managers. The selec
tion of two such admirable lieuten
ants is an evidence of Col. Neal's dis
crimination in their selection and re
"The State has its own saw mill
and all the lumber and shingles used
are manufactured on the grounds.
Carpenters, blacksmiths, wheelrights
and other workmen are found among
the convicts, and are conveniently
and -judiciously disposed upon the
premises. I never saw plantations
upon which there was a place for ev
erything and everything in its place
to exceed this.
"Now, sir, if what I have described
does not emphasize and prove what I
have attempted to exhibit, that a good
planter with other conditions for suc
cess added, such as strict and system
atic attention to his business and
steady, reliable labor, can make
money, then there is nothing else
will, and I need not prolong this in
terview. Suffice it to say that the
whole party returned to Columbia
duly impressed with the magnitude
of what we had seen and with Col.
Neal's wonderful capacity and ability
as a manager.
"One great regret we all felt was
the absence of Senator McLaurin,
who was unexpectedly prevented from
joining our party, as he had signified
his intention of doing."
Enjoyable Occasion at Foreston.
Editor THE TnIES:
I have often seen notices in THE,
TDiS that orange blossoms were*
blooming or would soon bloom and
ave been at a lost to know what
kind of a flower it was, and often
thought of asking you whether they
grew on bushes or were from bulbs.
Being in my teens and have never
been aroundi much it could not be
expected that I was posted on many
things that others who have been
more fortunate, and have had advant
ges that many are deprived of, but
iving in a day of progress now and
ten a beam of sunlight will come
ut on some dark spot that has been
bscure. So on last Thursday a full
blown orange blossom was revealed
o my vision and I must say it was
ne of the most desirable flowers that
as been introduced into this section,
ad I hope it will be cultivated ex
ensively for I know of no better soil
ad clinmate for their production and
know of many homes that have
some of the most beautiful faces for
heir receptical, while the blossoms
annot be surpassed in beauty there
are other associations connected with

Some days ago cards were sebt out
y Mr. and Mrs. B. 0. Cantey to
their friends, asking them to be pres
t at the M. E. church on Thursday
afternoon, at 4:30, p. in., to witness
the marriage of their eldest daughter,
iss Oliver and Mr. C. S. Land, Jr.
And as I have read about five
foolish fellows that were two late and
ere shut out-I went early-wish
had you or some other fellow
nows how to impart to others what

the decorations. They had moved the
desk from the pulpit and filled the
space with beautiful box plants, form
ing a back ground; there were two
lare columns with an arch resting
upon them in front of the chancel,
ll being covered with evergreens
intermingled with autumn leaves and
flowers; from tue center of the arch a
large bell was hanging, handsomely
decorated with evergreens and flow
ers, also a number of vaces of
flowers on the organs and stands.

ights burning, all of wvhich presented
At the appointed hour the bride
elect, who was most beautifully at
tired and carrying a bridal boquet,
leaning on the arm of the groom, en
tered the church and marched up the
south aisle, keeping time with a beau
tiful wedding march rendered by
Mrs. C. M. Mason, sister of the
groom. Ta king their positions undler
the arch, the Rev. E. H. Beckham,
pastor of the church, stepped forward
and performed the ceremony in a
most solemn and imupressive manner,
then another march was rendered on
the organ, the bride and groom
marched down the north aisle and
halted just outside and received the
ongratulations of their many friends,
wich consumed cotsiderable time,
as the church was wvell filled, and as
both bride and groom are favorites in
the comm unity, and more especially
After the congratulations were over
all the young people present having
been invited repaired to the resideuce
of Major C. S. Land, the father of the
roo.m. The house was thrown open
and we had what I have heard old
people tell of-a good old time.
At half past 8 o'clock refreshments
vere announced and the gentlemen
requested to escort the ladies to the
dining room, and your humble ser-.
-ant had the honor of ertingr ne
of the most lovely and entertaining
of the party. The table was filled
with all the delicacies of the seasor
and full justice was done by all, and
if there was any one present who did
not enjoy the whole affair from begin
ning to end, my verdict is he was not
capable of enjoying anything.

AN INDIAN LEGALLY SHOT.
Creek Redskin Went Voluntarily to the
Place of Execution.
CHELSEA, I. T., Nov. 1.-John Watka,
the Creek Indian who shot Jonas Deer,
a member of his own tribe, has been
legally executed for the crime. The
men were rivals for the hand of the
same girl and fought at a dance at
which she was present to decide who
should gain her. Watka kiaied Deer
and afterwards married the Indian
Several days prior to the time of the
execution preparations for his wife's
future welfare were completed and the
pang of parting over, Watka set out
alone to the public execution grounds.
A large crowd was in waiting to wit
ness his departure for the happy hunt
ing grounds. The prisoner assamed
his position, on beaded knees with arms
tied behind and a blindfold over his
eyes. The rifle was placed in the hands
of an expert marksman, a sharp crack
and the white spot marked for the heart
was discolored with the spurting blood
caused by the bullet.
Late this summer Watka went to
Kansas City with a baseball nine of his
fellow redskins and played a game at
one of the parks. He had ample oppor
tunity to escape, but returned to the
territory of his own accord, that his
sentence might be carried out.
