WAR NOT JUSTIFIABLE.
The whole country is now upon
the anxious bench, awaiting the effect
of President McKinley's message.
History does not recall a time when
the head of this government had a
more perplexing problem to solve
and under such embarassing sur
roundings. The United States and
Spain have been enjoying friendly
relations-the two governments feel a
kind of kinship; within almost speak
ing distance of the United States is
the Island of Cuba, in the very throes
of agony brought about by her own
people,and now they are crying for aid.
This island has a!ways been a lava bed
of insurrection and it has kept the
mother country in a state of feverish
anxiety; but with all of the outbreaks
which have occured our government
has never before felt called upon to
interfere. Are there grounds for in
terference now? It is true that suffer
ing exists, many of those people have
not the comforts of life and starva
tion stares them in face, but is that
not one of the usual results of war?
When the war between the States
was raging there were times when
the people of the South found the
necessaries of life scant, no foreign
country came forward and intervened.
In our opinion many of the reports
which reach us from Cuba are highly
colored, and many of them purpor
ting to come from Cuba, actually
eminate in the headquarters. of the
Cuban Junta in New York city. This
Cuban organization is one of the
most complete that was ever organ
ized in this country, it seems to have
any amount of money and in every
city in this country it has branches
and agents scattered everywhere.
This organization has through some
influence, about gotten possession of
Congress, and the great daily news
papers. It is openly charged that
Senators Thurston and Gallinger who
returned from Cuba with such graph
ic accounts of the cruelities and bar
barismn, were the paid representa
tives of the newspapers controlled by
the Cuban Junta. It is also strongly
intimated that the reports of these
two Senators were written before
they left for Cuba, and the dramatic
speech of Senator Thurston, in which
he so feelingly alluded to his dead
wife was studiously prepared and was
in cold type in the newspaper offices
twelve hours before its delivery.
If these charges are true, surely
the United States Senate is not that
high and honorable body represented
to be. The idea of Senators using
such a high office as a means to assist
secret organizations in an insurrection
against a friendly power. If these
Senators were the paid representa
tives of a newspaper or an organiza
tion they should not be allowed to
remain upon the floor of the Senate
no more so, than a Senator who is
the paid representative of a concern
seeking to make a contract with the
government to build battleships
President McKinley has grasped the
situation and re'alies that he has an
up hill job on his hands in the effort
to save this country from being plung
ed into a war, by a set of hot-beaded
men who will not have to share any
of the trial, dangers, and privations
of war. We venture that if a resolu
tion is offered in Congress declaring
war, and in it is incorporated a clause
that it shall become the duty of the
memnbers of Congress to take the
field, the resolution will fail of pas
sage, and if it does pass, it
would be followed by another almost
immediately declaring p~eace. The
people do not want a war as they do
not feel that there exists a just cause,
nor is their anything in the present
contention which appeals to their pa
triotism. If this government forces
a war, the people will go into it cold
blooded, upon the principle of wheth
er right or wrong, t! 'ril fight for
the nation's flag.
The prospects of war so oversha
dows our State politics that it is dif
ficult to make any predictions at this
time; however the opposition to our
present governor has been lessened
to a considerable degree, and it is
doubtful if all of the candidates so
freely spoken of, will enter the race
A CLARENDON BOY IN TROUBLE.
Elsewhere we publish a full ac
count of the trouble at the Citadel as
taken from the News & Courier. Ser
geant Canty is one of Clarendon's best
young men, a son of Hon. Joseph
S. Cantey of Summerton, and a more
honorable boy never put on a uni
form. If he reported any of the
boys for breaking barracks it was his
duty to do so, and the violent out
break against the young man is cer
tainly unf3rtunate. The people
throughout South Carolina will not
tolerate such conduct and unless the
officers in charge of the institution
punish the offenders, the next session
of the Legislatur' will take the mat
ter in hand and very likely withhold
the appropriation to continue the
Cantey is a noble fellow, conscien
tious and the soul of honor. He is
being trained a soldier and his first
duty is to obey ordoes; we therefore
suppose that in making his report of
those of his comrades who broke
barracks, it was one of the duties im
posed upon him by his superior offi
cers. He comes of stock that will
not be intimidated, even by a mob
many of whom were "under the in
fluence of whiskey." His Uncle Bill
Cantey, rather than surrender his
company at the battle of Five Forks,
gave up his life,and Cadet Cantey will
never surrender either. Many of these
cadets are the beneficiaries of the tax
payers of this State, and we know
that the people will not feel kindly
towards an institution that will tol
erate a condition in which many of the
cadets were under the influence of
whiskey. Cantey will stay at the
citadel if every cadet leaves its walls,
far better would it be for the future
of the citadel if the institution only
graduated Cantey a high toned con
scientious gentlemen than for it to
turn loose at the expense of the peo
ple a mob of toughs.
We regret exceedingly this most
deplorable affair, because we have
always felt kindly towards the citadel
and have time and again defended it
from the attacks of its enemies but
we cannot for a moment think of ex
cusing the conduct of "many of the
cadets were under the influence of
whiskey" last Monday night, and un
dertook by mob violence to force a
brave and honorable Clarendon boy
to leave the institution which he en
tered upon his merit.
The President's message will be
sent to Congress to-day and is said
to contain about 7,003 words. He
will recommend against the inde
pendence of Cuba for the present,
but he will recommend intervention
until a government can be formed.
There will be strong efforts to get
Conaress to back up the President,
as they should do. McKinley does
not want to recognize the independ
ence of a government which does not
exist. We have every confidence in
the President's ability to guide the
ship of State into a haven of peace.

School Entertainment at Jordan.
Jordan, S. C., April 2, 1898,
The closing exerclses of the school
situated in St. Mark's township or
School District No. 6, and known by
the local name of Rehobath school,
took place on Friday night March
25th and as I had the pleasure of be
ing present, I will write a few dots on
R. L. Jones, the young teacher
under whose supervision and influ
ence the school had progressed for
the last school term, made it clearly
understood that the exercises would
be short as he was not aware of the
fact that his school would not have
an entertainment until a few days be
fore. It is true that the exercises
were not wearisomely long, but they
were good, interesting and to the
The entertainment was opened
with a song by the school. This was
followed by'recitations, declamations,
musc etc. The music was fine; it
was furnished by the "Santee string
band," and we cac compliment the
Santee hand as being among the
best. After this Mr. Jones, the
teacher, took the stand. The subject
which he had chosen for the occasion,
Education. He spoke about half an
hour on the subject, touching on im
portant points and delivering valua
ble advice which wvas listened to with
interest by all of those who were
present. The entertainment was
closed by music from band.
It is true that this school is "down
on Santee," but it is as good a loca
tion for a school as can be found any
where, and if the school is as good
intellectually as the physical appear
ances were on that night, there can
be no doubt about its being a good
school. A Vistron.

A GREAT MOVEMENT.
Educational Triumphs of the Reformers.
A Just Criticism of the Movement's
Most Important Achievements.
Columbia, S. C., April 2.-It is gen
erally agreed on all sides that the
factional lines which have existed in
South Carolina since 1890 will not be
longer recognized by the people.
Therefore we may consider that the
faction heretofore known as "Reform"
has served the purpose of the people.
Without going into a general review
of the work accomplished by this fac
tion, which would only serve to eL
cite the old feelings of antagonism,
which had best slumber on, this cor
respondent wishes to direct attention
to one feature, that of educational
purposes, which friend and foe must
agree is the star transcendent in the
diadem of Reform politics.
Whatever may have been the short
comings of that faction in other di
rections, as viewed by its opponents,
all men can unite in giving to that
movement the credit of doing more
for the education of the imases than
any other one cause since the estab
lishment of the free public school
system. Therefore I invite you, one
and all, to a love feast and we will to
day review this work, wbich will
stand forever as a monument to a
movement which, being organized by
men, had, like all morality, its virtues
and its faults.
South Carolina has today a system
of public education, which in com
parison with the rest of the coun
try, considering our population and
wealth, has not its equal in the
United States. One very potent fac
tor in the education of the masses is
the newspaper, and newspapers in
South Carolina have increased about
thirty-five per cent. since 1890, due
directly to the political excitement of
the Reform movement. These pa
pers have not been confined to either
faction in politics, both factions see
ing the need of a greater diffusion of
knowledge and a political education
of the voters. Many of the papers
established during this political ex
citement were short lived, but they
all have tended to create a demand
for enligbtenment and supplied that
demand to greater or less extent.
Doubtless the time honored law of
nature, the survival of the fittest, has
decided the fate of those that failed,
and it may be remarked in passing,
that no newspaper that honestly
strives to serve God and its constitu
ency in the field it occupies has
aught to fear from a growth of in
telligence among its supporters, but
everything to hope, while those who
attempt to use and abuse their privi
leges for taking advantage of the
people, can only succeed so long as
ignorance enthralls them.
There are today many white men
of good sense, practical men and
worthy citizens, who are thoughtful
newspaper readers, who, in 1890, did
not know one letter from another.
Political ideas among the hard work
ing farmers are no longer taken sec
ond-band from the cross-roads gossip
or the dictum of the neighborhood
politician. They read for themselves
and they think on what they read as
they follow the plow, and thus, while
tilling the soil of the earth, they are
also tilling the soil of the brain, that
will make a crop of perennial growth,
and raise the standard of citizenship
to the honor of South Carolina.
I say, without fear of suiccessful
contradiction, that no one of your
neighboring States, that few, if any,
of the States in the Union, have to
day such a free thinking, independ
ent and intelligent voting popula
tion as has South Carolina, and
much, very much, of this is due to
the impetus given to education by
the Reform movement of 1890.
Now that these broad, general prin
ciples have been considered, let us
turn to a specific department, of the
State government which has the edu
cation of the masses for its charge,
the office of the Superintendent of
Education, and we may speak freely
for Mr. Mayfield, the gentleman who
has had charge of this office since
1890, has said positively that he will
not offer for ie-election to the posi
tion he has filled so creditably for
The statistics of this department
show that the total attendance in
public schools in 1889 was 194,264;
in 1898 the attendance was 258,153,
which is an increase of about 30 per
cent. A comparison of the teachers
employed in the different grades will
also be interesting. This shows:
1889-First grade, 3,211; second
grade, 987; third grade, 1,050; total,
1898-First grade, 2,617; second
grade, 1,471; third grade, 867; total,
The interesting feature in this is
the gratifying evidence of raising the
standard of teachers in the public
scools b..y en increase in the higher
grades and a decrease in the lowest.
Since no stream can rise higher than
its source, we cannot expect educa
tion to progress very rapidly under
the fostering care of uneducated
Nor is this all, for we find in Mr.
Mayfield's report for 1898 a reply to
strictures upon the Board of Educa
tion for the "high grade questions
submitted for examination of appli
cants." After reviewing the results
of examinations on these high grade
questions, Mr. Mayfield says: "This
showing indicates that the education
of the children of the State is placed
in the hands of compete~nt instructors,
as a rule. * * * and that the pur
pose of the board has been to provide
w~ell qualified teachers for all the
public schools." The teachers em
ploed in the white schools in 1898
were: First grade, 2,031; second
grade, 659; third grade, 238.
Schoolhouses in 1889, 2,962; value,
Schoolhouses in 1898, 4,189; value,
The report of 1889 does not men
'tion school furniture and apparatus,
chiefly because these items were in
considerable at that time, and only
the town schools had them. The re
port of 1898 values furniture and ap
paratus at $84,177.
In 1889 there were few graded
schools in the State; the report of
1898 shows 60, and every county in
the State except one has either a good
graded school or an academy. Eleven
only are without graded schools, and
one county, Newberry, has nine.
This shows pointedly that the link
between the high grade colleges and
the public schools in being establish
ed; that higher education is going to
the people, and the patronage of the
academies and colleges shows that
the people are going to higher educa
tion. It also establishes the truth of
the oft-repeated assertion of the
friends of higher education that a
liberal support of these institutions
would itself work out the education
of the masses; that this light from
the bill of knowledge would radiate
even into the darkest corners of the
In 1889 the length of the school
session was 3.4 months; it is now
about 4 months, and it is a significant
fact that the county in which there is
neither graded school nor academy,
has the shortest school term, being
only 2 months for both white and
It is also particularly gratifying to
note that the attendance at the in
stitutions for higher learning is
greater this year than ever before in
their history, except in one or two
individual cases-in the case of the
South Carolina College, the attend
ance one year previous to 1890 was
212, and that was when the experi
ment station and the mechanical de
partments were in full bloom at that
institution, now transferred to Clem
son; and Furman University, when
the Baptist Theological Seminary,
now located at Louisville, Ky., was
Clemson College has an average
attendance of over 300, Winthrop of
400, the colered college of nearly
1,200. The South Carolina College,
which in the early years of the prac
tical struggle lost so severely, now
has an attendance of nearly 200. All
other colleges, male and female, re
port an equally gratifying attendance,
which is the best reply to the ques
tion whether the public demand
these colleges or not.
Since 1890 there have been estab
lished in South Carlina Clemson Col
lege, Winthrop Normal and Indus
trial College, the Colored State Col
lege, as State institutions; the Chicora
Female College and the Greenville
College for Women at Greenville;
Converse College at Spartanburg;
and the South Carolina College for
Women at Columbia, all liberally pat
ronized. There are in South Caro
lina today 98 academies, 61 for
whites; 60 graded schools, 4 State
colleges for whites and one for col
ored; 20 private colleges for whites
and 4 for colored.
There are several matters due di
rectly to the office of superintendent
of education. One of these was the
suggestion of an extension of the poll
taxage; the exemption of school
bonds from taxation; a provision for
the expenses of laying off new school
districts; an increase in the number
'of days allowed the county board for
examination of applicants for teachers
and scholarships; and a simplification
of the law for the laying of special
taxes in local districts, all of which
resulted in very much greater good
than one would think who does not
study the matter closely.
Again, Mr. Mayfield, has been suc
cessful in his effort to reduce the cost
of school books, and these tools of
the trade now average 20 per cent.
less than they did in 1890. He was
also the means of increasing the term
of scholarship in WVinthrop from one
to two years, and it was mainly
through his fight that the ideas of a
Normal school for woman and an in
dustrial school were united and the
present school at Rock Hill is the re
sult. The establishment of the Nor
mal school at the South Carolina col
lege is also an outgrowth of this same
fight of Mr. Mayfield's for educated
Probably the crowning glory of
Mr. Mayfield's regime is the develop
ment of the county institute, wvhich
is now an established snccess, and its
influence is felt throughout the state
in the most beneficial ways. He has
plans for development this year, which
will still further increase the efficien
v of the county normal institute.
That school libraries have been
collected in many conn ties is due
gzreatly to his repeated efforts in this
As a means of bringing higher ed
ucation to the masses, Mr. Mayfield
has urged, and it is regarded by
those in a position to express an
opinion as to the granting of scholar
ships to the most deservin~g pupils
of the common schools. The devel
opment of this idea is pregnant with
the richest possibilities for the State
and it will mark the dawning of the
brightest era in South Carolina's
Ever alive to the interest of the
children, the coming men and women
of the State, the future voters, Mr.
Mayfield has urged, in lieu of the
establishmen of a reformatory, which
just now is impractical, the passage
of a law prohibiting children on the
streets at night unless accompanied
by an adult, which, though partaking
somewhat of patriarchial government
is a move in the right direction, and
a means of prevention to save a cure.
Ever jealous of his share of the
money and watchful, Mr. Mayfield
has been the means of saving no
small sum of money to the State as
well as securing all it was entitled to
by law. Mr. Mayfield got his busi
n'ess training as a bookkeeper in a
wholesale and retail store Greenville,
and this bookkeeper's instinct has led
to the detection of no few errors in
county returns. In one instance he
discovered a shortage of $4,300, in
another of $1,000. It was through
his shrewd study of the balance
sheets that the shortage in Union, the
shortage of Keels in Sumter, the em
bezzlement of Webber in Charleston
and many other shortages, defalca
tion and peculation were discovered.
Mr. Mayfield has proved himself to
be not only a good officer, but a
thorough business man, and business
methods are needed as much in State
and county government as .well as
the are in wholesale and retail
stores. Good officers make good
Now that we have finished our long
love feast, we can all shake hands and
agree that whether the Reform move
ment failed in one or another direc
tion, it certainly succeeded in a re
form of education, and this success,
like charity. will cover a multitude of
failures in other directions.

Editor THE Tnis:
War clouds have been hovering
over our country for some weeks now.
At times they would stubornly recede
and now at this time from all ac
counts they are getting thicker and
thicker and looming up with all their
blackness and ready as it appears to
break forth with all their fury. On
every side the talk is war, war. Yes,
the talk is war and we, for one, with
all sincerety of heart say "Let her
roll."It is indeed gratifying to every
true patriot all overAthis broad land
of ours to know that the men high in
authority in our government have at
last awoke to a sense of their duty,
and that they now begin to show a
disposition to defend the national
honor of our country, and to avenge
tbe death of our countrymen so
cruely murdered by brutal Spaniards
treacherously blowing up our bale
ship Maine on the night of the 15th
of last February. We believe our
government has dallied too long in
making up its mind to bring the co
wardly miscreants to an accountabili
ty. They ought to push this watter
to a conclusion by declaring war
against Spain let consequences be
what thev mav. The blood of our
unfortunate, tuough gallant dead has
been crying too long already from
the foul mud of Havana harbor or
retribution, and tne black winged
vulture of Cub, has hovered over and
held high carrival long enough to our
shame and mortification over some
of the bodies of our unfortunate and
treacherously murdered dead. The
cry and pleadings of the Cuban peo
ple for independence and deliverence
from the domination and oppressions
of the meanest, the most treacherous
and brutal people that the Creator of
all things ever took time to bring in
to existance has been too long un
heeded. But we believe the day of
Cuban deliverance draws near and
we sincerely trust the day of retribu
tive justice will in the meantime over
take the cruel murderers of our un
suspecting and too confiding coun
trymen. Bally for the jingoes, our
nation can depend on them. The
dollar loyalist and the long faced,
blubbering and peace pleading vali
ants may now retire to back seats
and we trust the jingoes wont be too
hard on them loving money and
peace better than they love national
honor and manly resentment. If
war does come, they should be given
a place in the picture, and a chance
to serve their country. They should
immediately be enlisted in the squaw
man's battalion, and every one label
ed quaker. With all seriousness we
believe the time for words and blus
ter isjnow past, and the time for ac
tion has arrived. Let the sordid
gold go and let our country give the
cruel and treacherous Spaniards war
to the knife, and the knife to the hilt
