There is scarcely anything new in
the war movements which we con
sider sufficiently reliable to give to
our readers. It is claimed that a move
ment has begun on Cuba, and that
Schley has swallowed Cervera and
has the dead wood on him. It is al
so claimed that a force of 300 Cubans
100 Americans with 75 pack mules
25 horses and a large amo'mt of arms
and ammunition has been successful
ly landed on the Cuban Island. The
principal thing done within the last
few days was the appointment of a
lot of generals who in turn are ap
pointing their staff officers; in the
meantime the poor privates are laid
up in camp waiting for orders to

more than usual care is necessary;

does not always make him a safe lea

a son whom we would like Governor
Ellerbe to take into consideration.
This man went into the service of
his country at the age of sixteen,
served throughout the war, and ever
since he has been one of the most act
ive militia men in the State. He not
only gave his time, but spent large
soms of money to keep his command
up to a high standard. The gentle
man we speak of is Col. David WV.
Brailsford, who is a natural soldier
and leader of men, and thoroughly
vese in the bchool of the soldier.
We would like to see our chief Ex
ecutive honor Colonel Brailsford with
an appointment and we can vouch
that the service will have no more
brilliant, dashin~g and competent offi
cer than he. Brailsford is as modest
.as a woman, but as fearless as a lion,
and has all the qualities to make him

The head of the Prohibition party's
machinery is such a strong advocate
for the political success of his party,
that he would not mind getting in the

them from enforcing the dispensary

the days gone by; such a zealous
political-Prohibitionist as A. Crane
Jones, the political-dry goods drum
mer for a Northern concern, would
give the blind tigers carte-blanhe,
provided, nevertheless, notwith
standing the said blind tigers will
give his Prohibition-for-principle (?)
party their votes. Jones is no novice
in politics. He has the blandest
kind of a smile, and in politics he is
like the darkey's mule, "yer trus' em,
he tro' Yo' shu."
Jones is a graduate of the political
school,prior to 1890; his courtly man
nor and persuasive smile was one of
the enticing features of the Secre
tary of State's office years ago. He
held down a clerksbip in that office
and be was regarded a handsome,
ambitious fellow, with a good pros
pect of some day being Secretary of
State. He was shrewd and calcu
lating, but when the political clouds
gathered in 1890 Jones, like his pre
ceptors, lost his reckoning, and after
the storm passed over, our friend
Jones, now chairman of the Prohibi
tion State Executive Committee, was
discovered endeavoring to crawl out
from under the debris. As soon as
he could get himself together he real
ized that his condition might cause
him to be taken for Dennis instead of
Jones, so he gathered up a gripsack,
turned up his nose at politics, and on
the road as a drummer he went. Then
when- the deplorable "Darlington
riot" occured, Jones' political instinct
came' to the surface and exhibited
itself in the effort to obstruct the
constitued authorities in executing
the law. Now we hear 6f him again
in a new role, the head of a cold
water army, we presume he might
be spoken of as "Immaculate Jones;"
this time he wants boodle to aid him
in spilling the wine when it was red.
Jones calls upon the preachers and
the ladies to help him turn the cup
from the lips of his fellow-man; why
does he call on ministers and ladies?
Has he not on his ticket Hon. W. H.
Timmerman who introduced the dis
pensaly bill in the State Senate and
who declared himself to be unfavor
able to the Prohibition platform and
nominees? Has not Jones got on his
Prhibition ticket Epton, another dis
pensary man, and Thompson, a high
license advocate, but wvho favors the

OLD (dRANNPTS CHOLAUOGUE.
It is now said that Governor El
lerbe stands a good chance of being
appointed a brigadier general by
President McKinley. The Governor
has offered his services to the Presi
dent and the Suouth Carolina con
gressional delegation are endeavoring
to induce hiim to make Governor El
~lerbe one of the forty brigadier gen
erals that he will have to appoint.
The News and Courier has been
been thrown into hysterics over the
announcement, and in vesterday's
issue she exhibits herself as a full
fledged "Dodo." That Spanish sheet
comes forth with a protest against
the Governor's appointment, and all
through its colicky editorial petty
prejudice butles up like the quills
on a porcupine's back.
It will be remembered that the
News and Courier did not succeed in
getting the troops mobilized in Char
leston, and ever since its mercenary
disappointment, it has taken a course
of violent spite. Nobody appears to be
exerting themselves to get the News
and Courier pacified, anid in fact,
many of the readers of that paper
think a hot water treatment would
cure the editor of his dyspepsia. The
News and Courier finds it unpleas
ant (?) to protest against the Gover
nor's appointment. Of course it
would like to make some one believe
that it is possessed of a semblance of
sincerity. No, the News and Cou
rier's protest is based on mean, petty,
Before that sheet can have a voice
at headquarters it will first have to
prove itself clear of being a Spanish
sympathizer. Its flipperty-flop course
since the declaration of war has ren
dered it open to grave suspicion. We
do not believe a newspaper whose ef
forts are directed to defeat a man be
cause of a grudge, can have much in
fluence with the authorities.
President McKinley has been kept
busy giving ambitious people fine
maillitary appointmeuts. This war
is a god-send to many a worthless son
of a prominent politician, and when
actual fighting begins the fellows
without a pull, will have to bear the
trials and dangers and the other fel
lows will get the honors IT wase ver

There is absolutely no truth in the

Yesterday's Item contained a state
ment with reference to Smallpox in
Manning which is a gross m3repre
sentation. That paper said "court

Everybody is delighted with the
appointment of General M. C. Butler
as a Major General in the United
States army, and the graceful atti
tude assumed by Senator Tillnan in
the matter is the subject of very favor

ponenL Senator Tillman could have
withheld his endorsement from But
ler and he could have fought his nom
ination. but he has shown himself
far above political prejudice when it
comes to a matter of this nature.
General Butler has a record made,
and in the present war we hope he
will have an opportunity to sustain
that record. Now that he is appoint
ed we hope the South Carolina troops
will be placed in his command; they
would follow him gladly and he
would have under him men that he
could feel sure would not disappoint
him in an hour of danger. We take
pleasure in congratulating the sol
diery in having such a bold leader
as General Matthew C. Butler.
Mr. A. C. Jones, the chairman of
the Prohibition Executive Commit
tee, acknowledges that he did use his
influence to prevent the military from
responding to Governor Tillman's or
ders. Well, there was nothing else
for him to do, as it was the truth, or
it would not have beci asserted by
this paper. Jones not only "ac
knowledges the corn," but he at
tempts to justify his conduct by a
shrewdly written appeal to factional
prejudices and the men who were, by
the dispensary law, thrown out of the
In his letter Jones casts a stigma
upon the memory of Gen. H. L. Far
ley, who, he says, told him "he was
not surprised that the men did not
go, but that he was obeying orders."

m'agnificent record and we must be
' eve Mr. Jones is either mistaken or
he misunderstood General Farley. In
our opinion Gen. Farley would have
thrown down his sword and resigned
his commission rather than have
played the hypocrite, and when
he received his orders from the Gov
ernor, like a faithful soldier, he
obeyed and he expected every mil
itiamen in the State to do the sanme.
No, Mr. Jones, Genera] Farley was
too sincere a man to make any such
remarks to a man wvhom he knew was
doing his best to prevent the laws of
the land from being executed, and at
that very moment was endeavoring
to prevent the General himself from
carrying out the orders which Jones
said Farley told him he was obeying.
General Farley is dead, and cannot
speak for himself, but the record left
behind him in war and in peace
stands out boldly as a clear contra
diction of Mr. Jones' statement.

(From or regular Correspondent.)
Washington, D. C., May 29.-There
are no new developments in the war
situation, except the very sensible
announcement that in the future our
squadrons will not be directed and
controlled in their every manouver
and movement from Washington,
bnt instead of that the squadron
commanders are to be given discre
tionary powers with certain limits.
In fact, our brilliant success at Ma
nila is mainly due to the fact that
Admiral Dewey exercised his own dis
cretion; for it has been intimated in
high official circles several times that
the Admiral exceeded his authority;
and, if he had met with disaster in
stead of the signal victory which be
achieved, he would have lost his com
mission. to say the least. But, as bis
victory threw brilliant luster upon our
arms, he was heralded as a hero. All
of which only emphasis the saying
that the only difference between a
great man and a small one is success
success makes a hero, failure makes
a traitor-Washington was a hero;be
cause he succeeded; Lee was a trait
or, because he failed: for the conduct
of the two men was essentially the
same-rebellion against the regularly
organized government. This act of
the Administration, though a little tar
dy, is a step in the right direction.
If the same policy had been adopted
sooner better progress would have at
tended the issues of the conflict.
The theatre of the most important
performances lately has been the Cap
itol. The war-revenue bill is getting
somewhat involved in entanglements,
both germane and foreign to the
measure itself. In addition to the
very heated contest now going on for
and against a tax upon corporations,
the revenue bill is now loaded down
with an amandment, offered by Sen
ator Lodge (Rep., Mass.), in the form
of a resolution annexing the Sandwich
Islands(called the Hawaiian Republic)
to the United States. The treaty of
annexation, negotiated some time
ago, has no show of ratification in
the Senate; so the friends of annex
ation (including the President him
self) are so anxious for its consum
mation that they have resorted to the
policy of making a resolution to that
end an amendment to the revenue
bill. This course is deemed by them
necessary to accomplish the result
sought, in view of Speaker Reed's ob
stinate and persistent opposition,
which he has carried so far that he
will not permit a rule authorizing its
consideration in the House; and
since, under the Reed rules, no meas
ure can be taken up and considered
in the House without an order or
rule, which must be sanctioned by
the committee on rules (composed of
the Speaker and two other members),
the advocates of annexation seek to
break down the Speaker's opposition
by throwing upon him the odium of
delaying the passage of the war
revenue bill or standing out of the
way and letting both measures go
throgh--they being united by this
amendment (if it is not tabled) that
they cannot be divorced and acted
upon separate. But there is a fur
ther complication threatened; the
silver men in the Senate are think
ing very seriously of tacking on an
amendment for the free and unlim
ited coinage of silver; while one Sen
ator intends to put on an amendment
abrogating the present reciprocity
treaty with the Hawaiian Republic:
so, taking all in all, there is a very
promising prospect of a long and te
dious debate-lasting all the summer,
and perhaps well into the fall; for, if
the Hawaiian-annexing amendment
is tacked on the bill, that alone will
open up almost limitless debate, since
there are very strong and cogent rea
sons both pro and con. The Hawaiian
annexation amendment was offered
only yesterday, and it is not known
yet wvhat disposition will be made of
it; but the sense of the Senate is to
be taken soon on a motion to table it.
If that motion prevails and thbe amend
ment is tabled, the situation will be
somewhat relieved; but, whatever the
action of the Senate, the Speaker of
the House is quite positive that this
amendment will never receive the
approval of the House: and, since
"thie Snentker is the whole thing" (in
the language of Jerry Simpson), it is
not apparent what the friends of an
nexation hope to gain by their tactics
-since the only inevitable outcome
of their course seems to the delay' if
not the ultimate failure of the revenue

Negro Tolunteers Not W1anted.
The Washington Post, in a leading
editorial, calls upon the President to
either withdraw the negro troops
from the South or else send them
as an advance guard into Cuba, and
that their presence and insolence has
a pernicious influence among the ne
This is a timely suggestion, and
the President will do well to act
thereon. A negro regiment wis it
cently transported through the Sout b
and its members acted as though t!be v
were invading a conquered couitry.
At nearly every stopping place thee
negro troopers were guilty of out
lrageous conduct, a-1 showed that
with arms in their hands they cared
naught for discipline and had no re
spect for even their own white olli
cers. They not only invaded bar
rooms and restaurants set apart for
whites and, because refused service,
raised disturbances and resorted t'>
violence, but they actually bauded
together and committed burglaries
and robberies. In Chattanooga a
band of these armed ruffians attemp
ted to break into a store at night, and
on being resisted by the proprietor
opened fire into the building. But
the plucky owner of the establish
ment was not to be driven away,
and seizing a gun he returned their
shots, fatally wounding two of the
scoundrels and seriously a third,
when the cowards beat a hasty re
treat. At Key West the regroes took
possessions of that town andl ran
rough-shod over the authorities.
But this is not the worst. Wher
ever quartered, the presence of these
negro soldiers, armed and uniformed,
sets the blacks of the surrounding
country ablaze, and the ignorant ne
groes believe that their presence li
censes them to insult the whites and
commit all manners of depredations.
Thousands of negroes visit their en
campment and worship these black
soldiers as superior beings.
Now, our southern people are nvt
going to submit to the outrages of
these negroes, even if they do wear
government uniforms, and if not re
moved to a more congenial climate
there will be serious trouble. Our
people will protect the negro so long
as he is in the right, and treat the
race with justice and kindness, but.

Gen. Miles was asked in Chicago if
he could rely upon the colored sol
diers, and would they fight? The
General replied that he would have
all negro companies placed in the
front and let them know that it was
as dangerous for them to retreat as
to advance. In other words, the
commander-in-chief of our army wiil
simply use negro troopers as portable
breastworks to guard white soldiers.
This reminds us of the old darkey
who dreamed that he died and went
to hell. When asked if there were
any white men there, he replied: "yes
boss, plenty of 'em; but eb'ry buckra

self and de fire."
There are enough white men in
the country, ready to enlist, to whip
Spain twice over, and they should be
first called out. But as the Spaniards
recognize social equality, and enlist
negroes and whites in the same com
panies, it might be well to "fight the
devil with fire," and send over an
army of black soldiers under such
white officers as wvant to command
them. But of one thing we are as
sured: Uncle Sam had as well try
and mix oil and water as to get our
