The Fifty-Fifth Coogress has pass
ed into historyand its record, he it
considered good or bad, is now a
sealed book for all time. It was an
historical Congress-the Spanish War
Congress. While there are some
blotches and blemishes upon its re
cord, its good deeds out number its
bad ones. In its last hours, it did
some neble and unexpected deeds of
fairness and even-handed justice.
Among these, the rivival of the grade
of Admiral for George Dewey, and
the refusal to sanction the conspiracy
of the Navy Department against com
modore W. S. Schley come in for
honorable mention. George Dewey
is now the full fledged Admiral of the
American Navy-The first one we
have had since the office lapsed with
the death of Admiral Porter; and
Rear Admiral Schley was confirmed
with a rank two numbers ahead of
his would-be robber, Rear Admiral
Sampson, who was compelled to take
his place (where he properly belong
ed) two numbers below. So that
Schley now ranks with a major-gea
eral of the army while Sampson ranks
with a brigadier-general. This leaves
these two officers in the same relative
positions to each other that they had
when the Spanish-American war be
gan. No one objected to Secretary
Long having his brother-in-law Cap
tain W. T. Sampson, promoted; but
nearly everybody objected to his
working a most flagrant and palpa
ble injustice upon another officer to
that end. Next to Admiral Dewey
himself, there was no other man who
came out of the war with as firm a
hold upon the admiration and affec
tion of the whole body of the Ameri
can public mind as did Admiral Win
feld Scott Schiay.
Admiral Dewey is now our highest
officer in either the American army
or Navy, with the comfortable income
of $14,600 a year; but our highest
*officer in the Army is only a major
general, Nelson A. Miles. It is no
fault of General Miles himself that
Congress did not feel itself called up
on to revive the grade of General of
the Army; for he was not given any
chance whatever of winning golden
laurels for himself. The determina
tion and steady purpose of the Sec
retary of war was to see to it that
General Miles did not come out of
the war with any additional honors
over what naturally came~to him by
virtue of his position as the nominal
head of the army. The word nomi
nal is vsed advisedly; for Gen. Miles'
position was that of a subordinate
during the recent war. Mr Alger
made Gen. Corbin (Gen. Miles junior)
practically hfs official superior
throughout the war; and not only
did so but actually aided and prom pt
ed measures which were calculated
and expressly intended to make the
position of the ranking major-general
any thing but comfortable.
There is one thing for which the
Fifty-Fifth Congress was distinguish
ed above all of its predecessors, and
that is the totai amount of money ap
propriated by it. The totals to the
credit of the last five Congresses fol
low: the Fifty'-First appropriated the
handsome sum of $1,035,680,109, and
won distinction as the first billion
dollar Congress; the Fifty-Second
reached the billion-mark wvith $1,027,
104,547, hut fell a lil tie short of its
predecessor; the Fiftyv-Third (being a
Democratic) Congress fell a little
short of the billion mark with $989),
239,205; the Fifty-Fourth beat all of
its predecessors with $1,043,437,018
leaving the Fifty-Fifth Congress to
break all previous records with the
astounding sum of $1,570,349,578
over a billion and a half. If the ex
cess of this last Congress over its imn
mediate predecessor be set down as
the total cost of the Spanish-Ameri
can war, we find that the war cost us
fully a half billion dollars.
Some of the most important foot
notes to the last hours of this last Con
gress are interesting: the Democratic
leader Bailey, seeing that he was a
leader only in name and not in fact
bowed himself downt and out and
gave up the empty honor in conse
quence of his failure to get the major
itv of his democratic colleages to sus
tain him in an erfort to declare the
seats of Gen. Joseph Wheeler and
other memb ers who accepted comnmis
CHARLESTON'S MYShTERY. ~
That mysterious (?) murder in
Charleston last week, whereby a Mr.
Thomas Pinckney was shot down on
the streets of a thickly populated por
tion of the city, is not being laid at
the door of the dispensary for a won
der. We wonder whV? The News
and Courier has not, as it did in the
Phoenix affair, undertake to place the
responsibility upon the State admin
istration. We wonder why? When
a reputable citizen was shot down zat
the ballot box at Phoenix and the
people rose to avenge the cruel mur
der, it was the News and Courier that
said. "The State admiListration has
demonstrated utter incapacity or bru
tal indifference to a condition of
things which will excite the conden
nation of the world."
Does the News and Courier think
the Charleston mystery (?) now that
it has home rule, and a thorough sys
tem of local self government will ex
cite the condemnatibn of the world?
If not, we wonder why?
Thomas Pinckney was murdered,
and somebody murdered him; who did
it? Why did the weeping lady want
the man whom she was talking to
bind himself with an oath? "Will you
swear it?" says this distressed lady.
"Swear to what, and what for?" Who
was that man in the church yard?
where did he go? The whole coun
try is interested in this mystery. If
Charlestan is so unsafe that a man
walking the streets on a bright moon
light night can be shot down, sur
rounded by occupied residences, un
der the glare of electric lights, and
people passing all times of night,
without the murderer being detected,
then we would advise people when
they visit that city not to venture out
at night. If Mr. Pinckney had been
murdered in New York somebody
would have been behind the bars long
before now, and family prestige would
not have been of any avail. But
Charleston is not New York and it is
exceedingly difficult to run do-vn
murderers there, if they are well
Poor Pinckney knew full well who
shot him (two negros) of course, but
the cause has never leaked out, and
the name of the white man in the
church yard has not come to light so
far. McFall's testimony so thorough
ly links with that of Mr. Logan's "cry
ing lady," together with her exactiog
"Will vou swear it" from the man,
presumbly Mr. Barnwell,that the bur
din of proof now, as far as public
opinion is concerned, lies with the
"champaign party at the Bardin home
to say who killed Pinckney and what
The News and Courier in teaching
its city readers, that the "State ad
ministration has demonstrated utter
incapacity or brutal indifference to a
condition of things which will excite
the condemnation of the world," has
reaped more than it intended when
it sowed its baneful seed, and as a
possible result the harvest comes
nearer home. By inculcating into
the minds of its readers a doctrine
that the State administration demon
states utter "incapacity," it embold
ens those who are lawlessly inclined,
and makes them tearless of a subor
dinate power--the city administra
tion, even with its well organized po
lice and detective force. "Whbatso
ever a man soweth that shall he also
reap" may be applicable to newspa
pers that sow seeds of lawlessness
when they advise or encourage the
violation of any of the laws on our
statue books, or attempt to weaken
the induence of the government
by saying that the "State administra
tion bas demonstrated utter "incapac
ity," &c. When such is the case can
we wonder that a man leaves a Bacca
nalean feast, to enter the chamber of
death, and a 38 calibre death-angel
(two negroes of course) crawls off un
der the trolley car tracks and "evan
esced with space."
The speech recently delivered in
the United States Senate by Senator
Tillman is in great demand all over
the Union. It is at strong and chaste
presentation, and one which puts the
Senior Senator forward as om'e of the
ablest debaters in that high tribu
The press of the State with one ac
cord are loud in their praises of Sen
ator Tillman for the services he ren
dered South Carolina in the recent
Congress, and such newspapers as
have heretofore been unabie to see
any good in Tillmnan,and would "damn
him if he did, and damn him if lhe
didn't" are now vieing with eachn other
to praise him loudest.
How anxious some of Senator Mc
Laurin's enemies are, to loosen his
hold upon the people of South Caro
lina, can be seen in efforts that are
being rmade to create the suspicion
that McLaurin voted for the peace
treaty with the understanding that
President McKinley would appoint
him Circuit Judge in the place of
Judge Sinmonton, who is expected to
rtire at any eatrly daite, on occount
of ill health. We have no idea that
Senator McLaurin has any aspira
tions to go upon the bench, as he is
too young and useful to he shelvedl.
MLauriu has a fututre before hinm
which wilredound to the glory of
SouthCrla and the little whipper
snapper, who are criticising his every
step from jealous motives will niot be
astraw in his pathwvay.
The only opportunity offered Lieut
Governor McSweeney to cast a vote in 1
the recent session, was a bill to permit
domestic wines to be sold without li
cense and without cowing under the
dispensary law. The measure, to the
surprise of the Senators met with a
tie vote and ai presiding officer the
easting vote was cast by Governor
McSweeney whose vote killed the
bill. Had that measure become a
law, the whole country would have
been infested with liquor dens under
the guise of dealing in domestic
One of the best laws enacted in the
recent General Assembly was the act
to prevent double pay of witnesses
in State cases. It has been ascer
tained that in every court magistrates,
constables and deputies have appear
ed as witnesses in numbers of cases
and drew pay for each cape while at
the same time they aie drawing sal
aries from tieState. Under the new
law, no officer drawing ray from the
State either salary or per diem shall
receive pay as a wit ness. The same
law applies to town oficials alo. This
will have the effect of saving money
to the counties and it will also see
fewer officials on the witness stand.
Senator Tillman, with Congresmen
Latimer and Norton are with a Cou
gresional party touring South C iro
lina, Georgia and Florida. The par
ty will be entertained in Columbia to
day and tomorrow night they will be
in Charleston. The whole paity will
attend a banquet given in honor of
Senator Tilluian by the business men
of Columbia for his successful efforts
in pushing through Congress a $250,
000 appropriation for Congaree river.

Col. T. L. Gantt, one of the most
fluent writers in the State has been
forced by failing health, to give up
editorial work. Gantt will be great
ly missed not only by the readers of
the Spartanburg Headlight, but the
newspaper craft will miss his quaint
and humorous pen. We regret ex
ceedingly that so able a writer must
discontinue the work, Gantt was a
useful man; in politics he was a hard
fighter fur the cause he advocated, at
the same time he fought openly. His
pen was ever ready to woik for the
interests of the people of Spartanburg

should never forget Gantt for his val
The Edgefield papers are booming
Ion. John C. Shepperd for Governor
to succeed thet present incumbent;
while it seems rather darly to be
launching booms, yet as one has been
launched we see no harm in taking a
peep at it. No one can be associated
with Governor Shepperd long, and
not be convinced that he is a man of
ability and ambition. His constitu
tents elected him to the State Senate
and in that body he has served one
whole session, without .having done a
single thing to entitle him to any
more distinction thani the rest of the
Senators. It is true he has served in
that body before, and at one time oc
cupied the gubernatorial chair, but
notwithstanding all this, in our opin
ion the people went to vote for a gov
ernor who has done something to
merit the honor since a new order of
things set in. The old timers have
been relegated, and we do not think
there is much of a disposition with
~the people to go down into the cellar
and drag out any' relics that were put
away ' ears ago. These are times re
quiring new ideas; new blood is to
be infused into our body politic.
Governor Shepperd is not an old
man but he belongs to a repudiated
school of politicians, and hence he is
reckoned along with them. We do
not imean because Shepperd belongs
to what was known as the Coniserva
tive faction, is wvhat operates against
him, no, there are thousandls oif C->n
servatives who are unwilling to sup-.
port tile old set~of politicians, because
they feel that tile old set hadl t beir
day and were laid away forever. We
honestly believe there are mimb.ers of
met], even] in tile Conservative faction
who would receive stronger support
than ex-Governor Shepperd, notwith
standing the fact that we hlave a high
personal regard for himu, and our as
sociation with him, was very pleasant,
bt wve believe in frankness, and this
is our frank Opinion.

(From or.r R-gular Correspondent.)
Washington, Mar-h 3.-Nothing
more significant occurred during the
closing days of this Congress than
Mr. McKinley's recognition of the
rapidly increasing sentiment against
an indefinite continuation of the no
b o d v-knows-what-we're-going-to-do
policy towards the Philippines, which
has been waking rapid headway
among prominent members of his
own party and which is practically
held by all Democrats in Congress.
Heretofore he has acted as tbough it
were treason to even hint that the
whole business should not be left to
his discretion. This week he took
another tack and talked of the neces
sity for Congressional action on the
Philippine question and intimated,
alt hough Le took particular pains not
to definitely promise that an extra
sessioni of the fifty-sixth Congress
would be called to deal with it soon
after the treaty of peace goes into of
ticill effect. Of course he may have
been talking for fear that Congres
sional sentiment would force an im
mediate extra session, in order to
settle the matter quickly.
(z:ir Reed didn't succeed in his
eff.-rt to kill the Nicaragua caiial
amnendiment to the riv:-r and harbor
bill, but he scotehed it.
The new army bill, with which the
Democratic Senators called the extra
session bluff of 31r. McKiuley, which
gives the administration the iumber
of men asked for, but limite their
service to two years fro.w the first of
next July, was a bitter pill to many
of the imperialists in Congress, but
they had to obey orders from the
White House and swallow it.
Mr. McKinley still lacks the nerve
to follow the iilvice of some of his
hest frienas awl demand the resigua
lion of Secretary Alger, but he had
enough to couipel Alger to announce
the abandonment of his intended
junket to Cuba and Porto Rico at
public expense. It is creditable to
the Democratic members of the
House and Senate military commit
te(s that almost without exception
they declined Alger's invitation to
themselves and family to accompany
him on the junket before they knew
that it had been called off. He haA
figured that Democratic criticism
could be silenced if ho could carry a
few prominent Democrats with him,
but they were not to be caught in
such a palpable trap.
Secretary Allen didn't throw any
bouquets at the Senate in a little
farewall speech he made. He told
the Senators that any single State in
the Union could easily produce ninety
men who were their peers in ability.
The inpression in Congressional
circles is that the administration did
much more hurrabing than there wits
any occasion for over the action of
the German government in announc
ing that it had ordered the single
warship it had at Manila away and
its request that this government take
all German citizens in the Philip
pines under its protection. It is a
good guess that this move on the
part. of Germany was actuated by a
desire to make it easy for its citizens
in the Philippines to collect money
from the United States for damage
done to their property by the Fili
Representatives Chainp Clark of
Missouri, J. Hamilton Lewis of
Washington, Jerry Simpson of Kar
sas, and James G. Maguire of Cali
fornia, were among the speakers at a
public meeting held under the aus
pices of the Washington Single Tax
clut. It was a sort of farewell so
far as Simpson and Lewis were con
cerned, as they will retire from pub
lie life at noon tomorrow.
The Democratic members of the
Senate committee on privileges and
elections-Turley, Pettus and Caf
fre-declined to join in the Scotch
verdict of "not proven" rendered by
the majority of the committee on the
charge of bribery brought against
Senator Hanna and submitted a mi
nority report, taking the ground that
further investigation should be made,
as one attempted case of bribery had
been fully proven. Of that case the
report says: "$1,750 was paid in cash
to Boyce Campbell as attorney for
Otis. Boyce agreed to pay $1.750
more when Otis reached Columbus,
and a balance of $6,500 if Hanna was
The situation wvas very near to be
ig presented in a sentence wvhen
Senator Cafferry asked in the course
of a speech against allowing the
President to govern the Philippines
uder a military despotism after the
formal proclamation of peace with
Spain has been wade, "Are the Amer
ican peop~le going to tolerate for any
length of time the usurpation of civil
authority cii t lie part of the President
of the Unitedl Sta'es?" Mr. Cafferey

peace goes into effect the Filipinos
will become A merican citizens and
