SOLI;ITOR NOT DETECTIVE.
The Jury of inquest in the Lake
City affair has concluded its labors,
and on last Saturday they rendered a
verdict that Post-master Baker and
his child came to their death by gun
shot wounds from the hands of, un
known parties to the jury. Solicitor
Wilson, United States District Attor
ney Lathrop, and Post Office Inspec
tor Bulla were present at the inquest
and neither of them were able to fur
nish evidence th.At would warrant the
jury in charging an individual or a
number of individuals with the
crime. The News and Courier of
last Monday labors very hard in the
effort to play to the Northern galler
ies, by indirectly charging Solicitor
Wilson with lukewarmness in the
matter, and not inclined to do his
full duty. The people of the third
judicial circuit know Solicitor Wilson
and they know, there is no public
official who is more conscientious in
the discharge of his duties; they know
also that in the discharge of his offi
cial duties he is no respecter of per
sons and absolutely fearless. The
slightest intimatiCn to the contrary
belies a public record of about
twelve years. If the News and Cou
rier would have Solicitor Wilson
tramping through the swamps of
Williamsburg, Florence and other
counties to run down criminals, they
must first get the law-making power
to incorporate that kind of work in
the law. The government has a se
cret service for such work and we
suppose it has made an effort through
that channel to obtain a clue; we
must infer that the secret agents or
governm~ent detectives have so far
failed in the effort to secure evidence,
inasmuch as none was produced at
The jury of inquest could not fasten
such a grave charge upon individuals
without some evidence, and we do
think that our esteemed contempora
ry makes a grave mistake in criticis
ing every step that is taken in this
deplorable affair. Its editorials have
played into the hands of the political
capital-making north, and we have
no doubt but that in the coming
congressional elections, they will play
an important part on the hustings.
The News and Courier, in -words
does not inlelligenily blame the Solic
itor for the verdict,but it does not need
extraordinary care in reading to see
that it would like to fasten a part of
the miscarraige of justice upon that
It might be so that in not assuming
the role of detective, Solicitor Wilson
has failed to gratify the "I am holier
than thou" editor of the News and
Courier. Perhaps it was not indif
ference at all; it might have been the
result of being incompetent, and as
the editor of the greatest journal in
the State is attempting to pose5 be
fore psalm-singing Massachusetts, we
would suggest that he put a little
sincerity into his professions, go to
Lake City and look for'the "nialefac
tors." In this day of progressive
journalism it has become a part of
the profession to run down crime, and
if this distinguished editor will
breathe a little life into his work, he
will not have to p)roclainm to his

,Great newspapers often do detective
work, and nmany a criminal has been

the energy of a newspaper, then why
not the News and Courier get out 'of
its old trodden path and arouse its
readers fronm their monotony by fuir
nishing evidence to convict the miur

WHO BLEW UP THE MAIE
The report of the court of inquiry, I
investigating the cause of the des- 1
truction of the battle ship Maine, has ]
been finished and is now on its way <
to the President. At present the (
public will not have an opportunity i
of seeing a publication of the report i
and what it is can only be surmised.
The only positive uncontradicted E
information to have reached the pub- t
lic so far, is that the battle ship
Maine was blown up in Havana har- (
bor and that 253 brave souls were
launched into eternity. The press <
despatches quote Admiral Sicard as i
saying last night:
"rhe case of the Maine iq most peculiar.
perhaps the most peculiar which has ever
ozcurred in the history of the world."
Fiom the general tone of his remarks it
might be interred that the cou:t findings
do not definitolv solve the mystery of the
explosion. Tbis is further borne out by
the Admiral's statement that even after the
report had been sent to Washington the
department way require further investiga
When General Wade Hampton of
South Carolina, visited Lynchburg,
Va., a few days ago, he was made the
recipient of special honors. The city
council called upon him in a body
"in recognition of the services he
rendered the city" during the war.
We heartily agree with some of the
newspapers that are protesting
against a continuance of denuncia
tion of the Lake City horror. The
press of South Carolina with a uni
nimity never before known condemn
ed the affair, and their is no need to
continue condemning it. Thesooner
we forget the occurance the better.
The prohibitionists have decided
to call a convention to put out a full
fledged State ticket. Where will
they find an Adjutant and Inspector
General? That is a military office,
and no one ever heard of a first class
military man who was not also a
genius at a banquet. One of the qual
ifications for the head of military is
an ability to direct the fire that comes
from a punch bowl.
A Mr. C. B. Smith, from where we
know not, nor do we recollect ever
having seen him, comes out in the
Columbia State to express an opin
ion, contrary to the one we hold re
garding Colonel George Tillman's
physical condition. Mr. Smith gives
Uncle George a certificate of health
and assuming that he is competent
to judge of such matters, we are grat
ified to learn even through Mr. Smith
that "Uncle George" is active and
can make a strong race. A man of
seventy-three years of age may, if al
lowed to enjoy quiet, add several
more years to his life, but when at
that time of his life he is brought for
ward toi take an active part ina polit
ical campaign, through sunshine and
rain, at a season of the year when
the heat often prostrates young men,
not to say the harrassing that he will
be subjected to, we think it wvrong
and an injustice done the man. There
is no man in the State who has won
our admiration more than Hon.
George D. Tillman, we regard him
an intellectual giant. His public
career has been an honor to himself
and to his State, but he has filled
his mission, his race is run, and he
should be permitted to enjoy a wvellI
earned rest in the shades of private1
life, and we reiterate what we have
said upon a former occasion that it
is not at all creditable to those, who
are resp'>nsible for Colonel Tiliman's.
The prohibitionists are organizing
throughout the State and they pro
pose to meet in convention and nom
inate a full State ticket. Suppose
they do nominate a ticket, how can a
set of State officers enact a prohibi
tion law? We are very much inclin
ed to the opinion, that this prohibi
tion move is nothing more nor less
than a newv tack to promote the po
ltica1 aspirations of a class of poli
ticians that, either failed otherwise,
or had no chance with either of two
factions that have been holding the
boards in the Democratic party in
It does not need any argument to~
convince the people that the theory
of prohibition cannot be put to prac
tical use, for if people want to drink
liquor they will drink it and all the
laws which may be enacted will not
stop it. The dispensary comes nearer
regulating the liquor traffic than any
thing yet tried, and now that it is
about to receive a fair trial, here
comes another move to destroy it. o
There are men connected with this
prohibition movement who are sin-t
cere, and are pushing it as a religous
dluty, but there are others who are
nt prohibitionists, either by precept
or example and have only donned
the prohibition cloak to further their
individual political interests. Ifi
there is a sincere desire to i.ive pro
hibition a trial, the place to make a
tight for the cause is in the counties
when it comes to electing members a
of the General Assembly, because ifI
the majority in the General Assembly
re opposedl to prohibition no prohi
bit ion law could be enacted, even if

downi to the Adjutant and Inspector
General were the most ardent teeto-1

Charleston's grand jury has again
'efused to find "true bills" against
)lind tigers, and Chief of Police
3ovle is determined to fulfill his oath
>f office. When Martin, the Reform
r, was chief, the excuse for not find
ng "true bills" was that Reformers
vere unworthy of belief. Now the
>olice administration is under a Con
ervative, and the jurors still ignore
heir oaths. Major Boyle says that
very case he presented "was sustain
A by creditable and sufficient testi
nony." Notwithstanding this, every
ase was thrown out. Is it surpris
ng? Not at all, for the jury com
nission are hand-in-glove with those
vho oppose the liquor law, and of
ourse they will see to it that men
who regard their oaths are kept off
he grand jury. The fact of the mat
er is that some of the grand jurors

Lfter the removal of the metropolitan
?olice, Charleston is determined to
dllow the macaroni eaters and Fritz
Lnd Hans, Pat and Moike to run
ough ehod over law, the sooner the
tate Legislature makes a change in
he method of drawing juries in that
ounty the better. Blind tigershave
io more right in Charleston than
lsewhere, and when an officer like
"hief Boyle admits his inability to
:>ring offenders to justice on account
)f packed grand juries, it is time
or the decent element of that city to
ome forward and ask to be relieved
rom such oppression.
If Congress would adjourn and go
ome jingoes might quit shaking red
ags at Spain. It is right for the
tdministration to put the United
tates in a position to protect her
ports from invasion, and all of our
efenses should be as strong as pos
iible, but we see no good reason to
?recipitate a war; it would be disas
;rous to the South, because the pro
lucts of this section would be para
yzed. We are cotton growers, and
otton has its principal market on
he other side of the Atlantic. If
his country becomes involved in a
var with a foreign power, our ports
vould be blocked and a general stag
ation would set in. The grain
;rowers of the West are differently
jituated, and if war is declared, their
roduce would be consumed and
rices would go up with a bound.
'hen another view is, that should
ostiities begin, our Southern ports
re much nearer to the enemv than
he ports of the North, East, and
West and we will be the first to re
~eive the fire from the Spanish fleet.
We therefore see no good sense in
he Southern people rushing pell
nell into a conflict which will make
hem the breast-works for the North,
West, and East. The North, with its
trms and amunition factories, can see
>ig money in a wvar; teWest, wt
ts food supply, can see the prospect
or a wave of financial prosperity
hould there be a resort to arms, and
he East with factories, ship yards,

>eople, can well afford to pat the hot

THEIR ONLY CHANCE.
The Prohiibitionists 3wit Combine With
the Local Option Men.
Columbia, S. C., March 19.-The
interest in politics seems to be cen
tered in the prohibition movement
and few if any developments are e
pected until after the convention
meets on April 14. The proposal of
a combine between the prohibition
ists and the local option men is still
being discussed on every side, but
many of the old-time prohibitionists
are holding out for a straight fight on
old lines and do not take kindly to
anything that bears the semblance of
concession. They maintain that their
position is a strong one and that if
the local option men care to support
their principle they are at liberty to
On the other hand, those men
versed in practical politics declare
that without some concessions to the
local option men there is no use going
into the campaign. The strength of
the old prohibition party has been
weakened by the dispensary and
without some new platform on which
local optionists as well as prohibition
ists can stand there is no hope of
success. With this combination there
would be only two tickets in the
field, and the man that did not like
the one could take the other. With
out it there may be half a dozen tick
ets and the result would be that
things in South Carolina will remain
as they are.
In some counties conventions of
prohibitionists have already been
held and the work of organizing the
forces has been begun. Reports come
that in most cases the county conven
tion are leaving the matter of a com
bination with the local option men to
a settlement at some subsequent
meeting to be held before the time
of the general convention in Colum
bia. Others are of the opinion that
this convention had best direct the
affairs of the party in the -coming
The whole State has been interest
ed in the appointment of Lawson D.
Melton as United States Marshal.
Mr. Melton is a representative of the
faction that has tried so long to make
Republicanism less of an offense to
the white men of the State, and which
has been termed the "lily white" fac
tion as opposed to the "black and
tan," or the old-timers-the relics of
1876. Heretofore the President has
ignored the "lily whites" in his dis
tribution of patronage and that fac
tion was likely to starve to deatb.
The faithful were just about to stam
pede back to the Democratic party,
which with all its strictness is so big
as to be good natured and disposed
to forgive and forget. So these err
ing sons of Carolina were about to
put on sackcloth and ashes and sit,
some of them have actually sat, before
the doors of the house upon which
they had turned their back. Had
they been re-admitted there is no
douibt but that the sackcloth and
ashes would have soon been discard
ed and they would have been asking
for the purple robes of office and de
manding that Lie fatted calf be killed
for their return.
This appointment made and
presto change-stock in the "lily
white" faction is beginning to mount
up and the faint-hearted are taking
strength and scattering back to their
tents beyond the outer wall. How
much the Lake City affair has had to
do with this appointment no one can
positively say, but it is thought that
the administration is beginning to
realize that the South is a white
man's country as well as the North,
and that politics is unwholesome for
negroes in this section. At all events.
we may expect to see the "lily white"
ranks filling up with some of the dis
satisfied politicians from the Demo
cratic ranks, which are really so large
that every man can't be a colonel or
a major, and some have to carry the
guns and knapsacks of the high pri
vates. The Republicans promise to
make it lively for us in the next elec
tion. There really is no telling what
fun there is ahead, but there certainly
will be a large and varied assortment
of sports in the political arena in the
The war talk continues to be of an
exciting nature, but so far it has not
visibly affected business and th3 ex
tension of improvements and enter
prises along the coast. It looks like
everybody is ready to fight, and
everybody is fully confident of the
strength and ability of the Federal
government to amply protect its coast
ine. There is, h3owever, little pioba
bility of a war.
The war spirit in Spain is not sur
prising, for the people of the old
world cannot realize the immensity
of the United States or its power.
The people of Spain especially are
ignorant and have an idea that they
are the greatest people on the earth.
They know nothing except what the
government permits them to learn,
but later indications seem to be to
the effect that a slight glimmer of the
truth is dawning upon the govern
ent of Spain and there is a great
deal less of blunder than formerly.
Spain is really about two thirds the
size of Texas, has a population of
about 18,000,000 and can only pre
pare itself for further war through
iberal contributions of rich and pat
riotic citizens, of whom thcre are
many eager to help the government,
both at home and abroad. Yet with
all her combined resources Spain
annot raise so much money as the
business men of Massachusetts, New
York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and
Dhio. As Secretary Herbert has ex
pressed it, one tight might settle the
uestion. The people of the United
tates have always been ready for war,
nd the government has always op
posed it until yielding to popular
oressure the nation has asserted her
rights by declaring war.
Governor Ellerbe has said that he
.s ready to command the South Caro
ia troops in the event of war, but
:he chances are-that he will not be
alled in to and expose his person to
lisplay patiiotism. It is not at all
alikely that the improbibility of war
ias prompted many brave soldiers to
>ffer the nation their services, while
nany others are really itching for a
ight, and it does look like people~
ave to go to war every generation
