The News and Courier, in its coI'
ments on the Phoenix riot, under
takes, we suppose for foreigni con
sumption. to lay the responsibility
upon the State adninistration, as
though the State oflicers can prevent
an outraged community from giving
vent to its indignatioD. "The
State adiist rat ion has demon
strated utter incapacity or brutal in
difference to a condition of things
which will excite the condemnation
of the world,' says this great news
No reasonable man will refuse tc
admit that the affair at Phoenix was
fearful in the extreme, and the mad
dened crowd went too far: they re
sorted to means that cannot be ap
proved of by lay-abiding citizens
The action of these people place
them in a very undesirable light be
fore. the world; at the same time, if
they had killed every negro in Green
wood and Edgefield counties, and
their white allies thrown in, we can
not see how the News and Courier
can place any blame upon the State
adininistration. Did Governor Eller
be sanction the rioting-: Did he, as
did Governor Tanner of Illinois when
called on. refuse to protect those whc
were being pursued
It is all very well to place on rec
ord a disapproval of lawlessness and
condemn it in strong words, but it i
not right. nor is it in the interest of
the people of South Carolina for a
newspaper published in the largest
city of the State to endeavor to pul
the State administration in a posi
tion of winking at,and acquiescing ir

The entire country has been look
ing to North Carolina the past few~
weeks, and when the news came that
the election passed off quietly and
resulted in the triumph of "white
supremacy" everybody was glad.
Then here came the dreadful newt
that trouble had broken out after
the election, in which about a dozen
or more colored men were killed and
a newspap~er office (destroyed by 1ire
and the editor tied for his life. The
cause of the bloodshed was throug!
a slanderous editorial written and
pubillished by a negro editor in the
"Daily Record,'' published by ne
groes in the city of WVilminxgton, and
the white men restrained thewselve!
ly after the elect-on the offending
negro editor was given notice to take
li! newspaper and leave the State,
and was given a certain number of
hours to do this. He left without his
newspaper outfit and the angered
crowd destroyed it.
The following is the offensive arti

The interview of Senator Tillman
published in last Monday's News and
Courier is a strong and well worded
utterance. The resolutions adopted
by the Wilmiuington mass meeting and
this interview sounds vepy much
alike. Did Senator Tilliman have
"something to do" with writing of
the Wilmington resolutions? We
have heard that he did.
The contemplated extension of the
Wilson and Suminerton railroad to
Camden has not received the encour
agement it should from the business
men of Sumter. It may be that the
business men share the opinion of
the "Item" in thinking the project a
grand bluff to check the building of
the Sumter and Wateree road, of
which Colonel Blanding is president.
We have no doubt that Cononel
Blanding is anxious to get his rail
road project through safely, but his
many efforts in the railroad line have
not proven a flourishing success.
There is a difference between a rail
road on paper and one on crossties.
Captain Thomas Wilson is a practi
cal railroad and business man and he
believes there is money in a railroad
to Camden by extending the Wilson
and Summerton road, that he is not

It is now certain that Congress
will be controlled by the Republican
party; upon it will be the responsi
bility of the conduct of the govern
ment. Some of the Democratic news
'papers think it best that it should
be so, and they are trying to argue
the people into thinking, with the
Republicans in full control of every
department, it will be easier for the
Democracy to win at the next elec
tion, but we do not share in this
view and regard it a delusion. The
Republicans are found in power after
the successful terminatre of war;
they are regarded by the masses as
the party which made and won the
battle, and thereby brought to
this government vast territory and
wealth. This being the condition,
it entrenches them in power for years
to come. William McKinley will be
their standardbearer in 1900 and in
our opinin he will be re-elected with
a larger majority than before. The
Republicans will put McKinley for
ward in the next campaign with the
shibboleth, "McKinley the conquer
or of the Castillians" and the battle
cry will ring around the Union as
did the bugle notes of Roosevelt in
New York State. In our opinion
there is absolutely no possible chance
or the Democratic party to elect a
resident in 1900, but at the same
time our organization must be kept
up to take advantage of the mistakes
of the party in power, the Tar fever
will cool off later and then our party
may again be called to the front.

(From onr Special Representative.)
Washington, Nov. 11.-At the cab
inet meeting to-day, the domestic
and race troubles in North Carolina
and South Carolina came in for con
siderable attention. The race ques
tion came to a head in Wilmington.
N. C., the other day in the shape of a
street conflict in which many lives
were lost, and the conditions there
have challenged the most serious
attention of the Federal authorities
here and became one of the chief
topics of discussion at to-day's cabi
net meeting. It is understood that
the President and his advisers cane
to the conclusion that, under and by
virtue of section 5290 of the Revised
Statutes of the United States which
became a law in 1870, the adminis
tration has ample power and author
ity to send Federal troops down there
even if the governors of the States do
not call upon him for aid and protec
tion. But it is also stated that the
President will refer the question to
his attorney-general for considera
tion and report. But it is very ques
tionable whether the President can
legally interfere with the domestic
affairs as to threaten the interests of
the United States, interfere with the
administration of federal laws, or the
governor of the State calls for aid in
his efforts to preserve order and sup
press riot or insurrection. It is a
very dangerous precedent to estab
lish and is wholly incompatible with
any just appre-iation of the "re
served rights of the States or the
people." But such conduct is in ex
act keeping with the "elastic idea"
of federal powers. One by one and
inch by inch the Federal has in
croached upon the State powers to
such an extent that the President of
the United States, whether it be
Grover Cleveland in the Chicago
strikes or William McKinley in the
K.rth Carolina race troubles, does
not hesitate to invade the borders of
a State and paralyze its domestic au
tonomy; and thus, by degrees for
years. the boasted palladium of our
liberties is being broken over, and
local self-government has become a
delusion, a mockery and a sham-the
mere shadow of that sacred right
which our forefathers sought to
hedge about by ample constitutional
reservation and provision. Ever
since the late war the tendency of
both Congress and the Federal courts
has been to give the United States
the benefit of every possible doubt
lying along the border ine between
ederal and State jurisdiction-se
mreh so that the late Samuel F. Mil
ler, one of the ablest judges that ever
graced the bench of the Supreme
Court of the United States, was
heard to say in a public lecture be
fore a law school in this city that the
pendulum had swung from the ex
treme of State nullification of Fed
eral laws to that other, further and
more dangerons extreme of Federal
nullification of State laws and en
croachment upon the reserved rights
of the people.
The reports of the Supreme Court
show that Justice Miller was not in
accord with many of the leading de
cisions rendered by that conrt along
these lines; for he had the courage,
independence and honest manhood
to render dissenting opinions in near.
ly all of the cases which took Federal
authority beyond the proper bound
ary which separated it from the lo
cal rights of the States; and a few
more justices as able, honest and
fearless as Justice Miller would have
endered such a course as that Presi
dent McKinley and is advisers are
now contemplating as utterly out of
the question. But, as it is, "the
States have no rights 'vhich the gen
eral government is bound to re
spect." And, when local self-govern
ment in the States has become whol
ly a thing of the past (and the pres.
ent tendency makes it only a ques
tion of time when such will be the
case), the respective States will be
come mere counties and the national
bosses, like Hanna, Quay and Platt,
will run the whole machinery of gov
enent, local, state and national,
as completely as any mayor can run
the official forces of his municipality;
but, when that day dawns, Ameri
can liberty will have become only "a
tale that is told." And yet the peo
pe seem to be wholly unconcerned.
The masses are surely not keeping
up with the procession; for they can
not be indifferent to questions which
so vitally concern them, their chil
dren and their children's children;
for these things reach those whose
fathers are yet unborn.
An Old Idea.
Every day strengthens the belief of emi
nent physicians that impure blood is the
cause of the majority of our diseases.
T wenty-five years ago this theory was used
as a basis for the formula of Browns' Iron
Bitters. The many remarkable cures effected
by this famous old household remedy are
sufficient to prove that the theory is correct.
Browns' Iron Bitters is sold by all dealers.
