We regret that absence from our
office last week prevented our going
upon record immediately after the
Lake City tragedy. The press
throughout the State has very pro
perly placed the seal of condemna
tion on the act and so has every citi
zen with a spark of manhood and
decency. The blood curdling tales
of the early history of this country,
when savages were roaming the for
ests will not compare in heinousness
to the horror of Lake City. To be
forced to acknowledge that in South
Carolina there exist human beings
who under the cover of night will
place a torch to a dwelling and as the
inmates attempt to escape from the
crematory they are shot down and
left to burn, is an unendurable hum
iliation; it is sufficient to bow the
proud bead of the Carolinian in
shame and forever seal his lips when
others are boasting of their chivalry
and bravery. Thank God! there is a
way left open, to set ourselves
straight before the world, and that is
to assist the officers in bringing to
justice those who participated in this
hellish deed. Now is the time to
teach those who are lawlessly inclin
ed that such dastardly acts cannot be
tolerated where schools and churches
abound, and no stone should be left
unturned to bring the guilty parties
to justice; the affair is in such a
shape, that it is incumbent upon the
lawabiding element to go to work
and see to it that the fiends are pro
-uecuted. convicted and hanged. The
hanging of the'leaders of this horri
ble murder, would do more towards
putting a stop to killings in this
State than anything which could have
When it is considered how little
excuse this mob had for resorting tc
'violence, the crime they committed
becomes more sickening and blacker.
Baker accepted a commission as
post master of Lake City; it is true,
he was not a citizen of that commu
nity and the citizer.s were naturally
indignant at having a man imported
to fill the place, and they say he was
incompetant; instead of waiting to
convince the government of his in
competency, they resorted to boy
cott, afterwards to intimidation ther
to the shot gun. As long as they did
the man no bodily harm they had the
sympathy of every body, and their
representatives in congress were use
ing every endeavor to have the mar
displaced; the work of the represent
atives was shockingly interrupted by
one of the most diabolical deeds ever
perpetrated in a land where there is
one scintilla of civilization, the
details of which are so horrifying
that it makes ones blood boil with~
indignation one minute, and in the
next his heart goes out in sympathy
for that mother whose innocent babe
was torn from her breast by a storm~
of lead. In the name of heaven, shal]
the work of these demons go unpun

with this devilment must be ferretted

Ball shows to better advantage when
he gives his talent to the develop
ment of the material interests of his
city, than when he assumes the role
of a political dictator. Let that be
as it may, last Sunday's issue of the
News was a "peach."
The tide of opposition to Governor
Ellerbe is fast receding and we be
lieve before the campaign is formally
opened there will not be many can
didates in evidence; The cause is
plain, professional politicians are in
politics for what is in it for them, and
in order for them to be in a position
to make anything, they must stand in
with the people. It was their desire
to crush out Ellerbe and by raising a
storm of opposition against him they
hoped to carry the people with them,
but after a number of efforts they
realized that Ellerbe's administration
could not be attacked. It was so
clean and frictionless that no open
ing was left for opponents to get in
a blow; they were smart enough to
not undertake a campaign against
the governor on account of his not
pleasing them with some of his ap
pointments because they knew full
well the people would not listen to
their woes. Now instead of a con
tinuence of the fight they started out
with, these political monte-men will
run pell-mell to his standard and
out-Herod the people in their support
We see it stated that Senator Till
man expects to take a quiet hand in
the fight for his friend Colonel Wat
son, and we sincerely hope there is
no foandation for the report. Ben
Tillman is a great man and the peo
ple have not lost confidence in him
but should he undertake to put his
nose into this business, it will be
chopped off as was done in the Earle
-Evans fight. The people may fol
low Tillman, but when he undertakes
to lead them for some one else that
will call for a halt. We do not be
lieve Tillman will undertake to use
any influence in this campaign, for he
knows full well that he has socks of
his own to knit and will not have
time to do any knitting for any one
else. The more we see the move
ments on the political chess board
the more are we convinced- that
Ellerbe will be his own successor.
CHAMBERLAIN'S COUGH REMEDY.
This remedy is intended especially for
coughs, colds, croup, whooping cough and
influenza. It has become famnous for its
cres of these diseases, over a large part of
the civilized world. The most flatterng
testimionibls have been received, giving ae
counts of its good works; of the aggravat
ing and persisteut coughs it has cared; of
severe colds that have yielded promptly to
its soothing effects, and of the dangerous
attacks of croup it has cored, often saving
the life of the child. The extensive use of
it for whooping cough has shown that it
robs that disease of all dangerous conse
quences. Sold by R. B. Loryea, druggist.
A NEWS SUMM~ARY.
The Events of the Week Reviewed-Very
Little Gomg on Upon the Surface.
Columbia, S. C., Feb. 26.-There
will be no change in the county gov
ernment law this year. The Hen
derson bill has been buried in the
governor's office. This disposes of
the most radical measure of the last
session. There is strange feeling
over this act and great pressure has
been brought to bear on both friends
and opponents of the measure. U~n
der the present law some counties
have made under full records, while
others have floundered hopelessly in
the quagmire of debt. As is natural
to suppose the friends of Henderson's
bill are to be found among those who
have not fared so well under the pres
ent law while the others are its oppo
nents. Among the counties that have
made a success of the Evans law may
be mentioned Barnwell, which coun
ty reduced its expenses in two years
from $28,000 to $1'7,000 and now has
cash on hand. This is probably the
most signal success that is to be not
ed. In most instances, probably in
all instances, the trouble has not beezn
with the law, but with the adminis
tration of it by unbusiness-like men.
The lav. has also worked well in
Richland, which now has a surplus
The governor has been in no hurry
to sign the bills passed during the
session and has very properly given
much study to each one in its turn.
Among the exciting events of gen
erally news dtoing the week has been
first and foremost the massacre at
Lake City, the settlement of the agri
cultural hail case, extensive forest
fires that have done so much damage.
The bringing of suit by the attorney
general to compel the railroads to
obey the law as to the erection of
Union depots, the ordering of the
election for Pee Dee county, the re
vival of phosphate mining in Beau
fort and the progress of the smallpox.
The condenination of the Lake
City lynchers is universal. Thero is
a general desire for their prompt
punishment, and at the same time
there is a desire to put the necks of
Messrs. Hanna and McKinley in the
same noose, and also to let the canary
statesman from Darlington have his
share of the rope's end.
In the agricultural hall case, the
state surrenders its $10,000 mortgage,
rather than fight the validity of the
Blue Ridge scrip. There has been
no great show of ability on either
side in this fight. Mr. Lyles doubt
less sees now where his over-zealous
ness spoilt his client's case, while the
state has had a long fight and lost at
the end of it. It is an ugly chapter
in our history, and the people will be'
glad to see it closed.
The extensive forest fires have
called in a pointed and tragi~i man
ner attention to the great danger
from the vicious practice of burning
off the woods in the spring, so com
mon among farmers. A little more
ertilizer that would build up waste
and instead of destroying it and en
langering the lives and property of
he neighbors. It is not unlikely
hat practice of burning off the
oods will receive the attention of
he legislature nest year.
In regard to the suit against the
railroads there is every indication of
3 stubborn fight to see who is boss
in South Carolina, the railroads or
the State. The fight does not par
take of the spirit of oppression on
the part of the State government
which characterized the administra
tion several years ago. Of late the
state has shown every disposition to
be fair and just and in a degree lib
eral to capital and enterprise, and no
complaint can be made on that
score. It is the railroads now who
are disposed to be unreasonable and
to refuse to accede to the demands of
the people who gave them birth and
who nourisb them. It will be a long
fight or the railroads will back down
early in the game. In the end the
state must be successful, for it has
right on its side.
Pee Dee county will very probably
be created. At least every opportuni
ty is now given to the friends of the
new county to push their claims.
The last election was declared void.
on account of fraud, and it will now
be the duty of the good people of
that section of Marion to see that
their name has no smirch on it. They
won last time, and will probably win
again, but they have strong men,
manly and able counsel to contend
against. Verily, Pee Dee will earn
its right to live if it is created.
The renewal of the phosphate in
dustry in Charleston and Beaufort
is one of the most gratifying items of
news that the newspapers of the
state have had to publish in quite a
while. It has long been asserted by
friends of the administration that
this great industry was not dead, but
only "playing 'possum" in order to
get a reduction of royalty. Whether
this is true or not, it is a fact that the
men who are engaged in it are no
more philanthropic than any other
set of men in the state and it is fair
to suppose that they see some money
for themselves. and necessarily the
state must come in for its share. The
state is therefore justified in the firm
stand it took against a reduction of
the royalty. It is not every child
who cries "sick" that needs the doc
tor. The paddle has been known to
do more good sometimes than medi
In regard to the smallpox scare,
there is enough fire in the saoke
to cause men to be apprehensive and
to justify the health authorities in the
compelling of vaccination. Wheth
er chicken pox, it can no longer be
claimed that there have been no
deaths from it for Pelham mills in
Greenville county has had two deaths
in the last few days.
So far as politics is concerned,
there is little to be learned. The
politicians have been resting for the
past week and probably incubating
new booms that they will spring la
ter. It is understood that the mails
are kept pretty hot, but there has
been little talk.
The effort to recognize the scat
tered forces of the "truly loil" is still
in progress and the politicians who
are interested conservation of these
forces seem satisfied with their work
but it is an open secret that they are
afraid to push themselves under any
one who has yet offered himself. As
a leader, and that the redoubtable
Knight of the pitchfork may yet be
recalled to sound the slogan, for they
think like the followers of Roderick
"One blast upon his bugle born
were worth a thousand men."
It is also understood that the ne
gotiations for tbe control of a certain
daily newspaper are by no means off
It is also understood, in passing, that
many of the leaders of the battered
batallions are emphatic in their op
position to a march convention. It
is also understood, via the grapevine,
that the Knight of' the Pitchfork is
behind the Wilborn Cotton Growers
assocation movement, the scheme
being in reality a political one and
not an economic tueqssure. The cot
ton growers are thus to be seduced
into a compact organization which
will be used for political purposes.
If this be so, and every man will have
to find out for himself the farmers
will lose no time in stamping it out
for their is a disposition to resent
being used as dumb driven cattle for
the benefit of politicians.

His Honor Judge Gary after ex
pressing his pleasure at being again
in our midst proceeded to deliver
one of the most magnificent charges
we have ever listened at. The fol
lowing is a synopsis:
"Mr. Foreman and Gentlemen of the
"In the outset of its association,
with those who are to perform your
time-honored and, I may say, inesti
mable duty, it is a venerable custom
for the court to give some brief ex
pression in outlining and defining, as
it were, your duties or service in the
capacity of grand jurors.
"In the outset, gentlemen, let me
tell you that you are not here on
pleasure bent nor for the purpose of
transacting private business; you are
here in the performance of a very
high and responsible public duty.
"The law of the land is, that no one
charged with crime can be put to
his proof, unless through the present
ment of a grand jury, (except in time
of war; in that case a court martial
is instituted; or in some minor cases
triable by magistrate.) He cannot be
tried in a Court of General Sessions
unless be be indicted by a grand
jury. You see that through you the
machinery of the court is put in mo
tion. Until you act the court is pow
erless to act. It is through you that
a charge is brought against a citizen
of South Carolina for violation of
South 'arolina's laws. In the mak
ing of that charge you are not the
triers of a case,but you simply say that
the State has furnished you with suf
ficient proof to bring the party to
trial; if so it is the duty of the grand
jury to find a true bill.
"Now, Mr. Foreman, your investi
gation is ex patte; you have the
State's side of the cases and deter
mine whether there has been a prima
facie case made out. If you find that
a prima facie case has been made out
it is your duty to find a true bill.
"Now, in the performance of your
duty I do not want it misunderstood;
I want you to know and find that in
the administration of justice at this
term of the court, your agency and
your actions is of vital importance to
the community in which you live, so
much so that the grand jury has been
termed the right arm of the court.
You are the right arm of the court,
You touch the electric button that
puts the machinery of this court in
motion. Until you have acted the
court is powerless.
"If in the performance of that duty
your efforts are paralytic to that ex
tent, you paralyze the right arm of
the court. To him then who would
have and deserve the good opinion
of his fellow-man, I need Dot dwell
upon the wveighty character and
binding obligation of that dual re
"Let me remind you , gentlemen,
that you are the representatives of a
county whose past and present hia
tory (with the exception of a brief
interval) has reflected such glory to
her name, in which all of her sons
have a just pride, whether on account
of the vicissitudes of fortune or from
any cause they have crossed her bor
ders, they have always cherished a
pride in the glory of Clarendon. But
while, gentlemen, we may indulge in
a natural exultation in the renown of
our country, and while we may justly
boast of the beauty and symmetry of
our laws, by indifference and inatten
tion we may endanger the one and
give reproach to the other.
"The patriot has been eloquently
reminded that feteinal vigilance is
the price of liberty.'
"It has also been said that the ser

"The object of law is to promote
peace, happiness and good order to
society. And if in the dealing with
this enemy to society you are mis
guided or improperly influenced by
gy consideration other than is con

.vour oath, you but sow a cancerous
sore in this county, the result of
which you cannot estimate.

him you are in doubt upon any ques

to have such information as the court
can afford you.

"A love for learning is oftentimes
as good as learning itself." This sen
timent is one that should appeal to
the best feelings of every true, con
scientious teacher. A teacher's aim,
it seems to me, should be that his
pupils have implanted within them
selves such a desire, such a hunger
ing for knowledge that they would
know no obstacle to its acquirement.
And the teacher himself must have
this love for learning before he can
hope to insp;re it in others, for it is
impossible to impart that which we
do not possess. So, then, teachers, if
we have not this love, this enthusi
asm, it would be well for us to exam
ine ourselves; perhaps the elements
are there, but need to be skilled by a
rigid course of study, a course that
would require some hard work. Let
us first get our own minds re-awak
ened, and then the sparkle and flash
of the eye that comes from mastering
difficulties will awaken in our pupils
desires to do something along those
lines where before they were perhaps
despondent and tempted to give up.
One thing is certain, enthusiasm be

Try to keep before your pupils, not

dodge the perplexing questions that
will come up for his solving in after
life; that the pupil who is always
tardy will become the man who, by
force of habit, will always be too late
to secure the best things of life; that
the little boy who will cheat in
any way, however unimportant, will
be tempted to follow up the cheating
business throughout life; that the
