THE NEXT GOVERNOR.
Who will be the next Governor of
South Carolina? is a question now
being seriously considered by many
of the politicians throughout the
State. There are numbers of men
who have their political rods out
coaxing the lightning to strike them
and they are not averse to seeing
their na~es ini pri1t in connection
with this great honor.
We have been watching to see if
any of the luaders were going to put
forward a man, but so far it looks as
though the leaders are going to let
the aspirants get up and nurse their
own booms. The attempt to launch
a Latimer boom did not create much
of a furore, nor did the Shepherd
boom carry the people off of their
pedal extremities. Of course there is
plenty of time, and there is really no
necessity for a man's friends to spend
themselves so far in advance, never
theless a certain element is feeling its
way in public sentiment.
Some say that ex-Governor Evans
will loom up as a candidate when be
comes home, and if elected, MeLau
rin will have fcrmidable opposition
in him for the Senatorship. Senator
Tillman has so popularized himself
by his Washington record that even
his most anxious enemies concede the
uselessness in giving him opposition;
therefore we may expect a tame af
fair of our next political campaign,
because if Tillman has no opposition
the gubernatorial race will not have
anything to attract the crowds. Tfhere
is no doubt that the prohibition peo
pie will make another effort to elect a
G3overnor, but we believe they will
select some other than Mr. Feiather
store to lead them. He has proven
hime elf more of a dickering politician
than a devotee of a religious princi
ple. The high license people may
agaiu call forward Hon. 0. L. Schum
pert to lead them, although they
would prefer "Uncle" George Till
man, and the dispensary advocates
may center upon Latimer cr a more
conservative man, say Lieutenant
Governor McSweeney, who is a be
liever in the dispensa.1y system modi
fied so as not to make the law obnox
ious to any portion of the State.
We believe if McSweeney becomes
a candidate he will draw a large sup
port from both of the heretofore fac
tions, because he has never been an
extremist, and be is a thorough busi
ness man with enough public experi
ence to fit him capitally for the high
honor of chief executive.
The investigating committee now
looking into the management of the
penitentiary under Col. WV. A. Neal,
have resumed operations and will no
doubt be ready to make a report in
the near future.
There died in Augusta, Ga., last
Sunday, Hon. Patick Walsh, a man of

Senate. Mr. Walsh was raised in
South Carolina, and had a Lost of

He is over in the Philippines trying
to civilize the Filipinos by extermi
nation. The press dispatches show
that Generals otis and Wheaton are
doing the exterminating act all right
enough, but they seem to find Agui
naldo like the cat with nine lives. It
has become a common thing for the
Americans to engage the enemy in
battle and come out with one or two
Americans wounded with several
hundred of the Filipinos left dead
upon the field, at the same time the
government is requested to send over
more battleships and more men. It
must be that our forces are killing so
many of the Filipinos that reinforce

The Columbia Stato and Green

look wise. 1: will be a freezing day

A Pinkerton detective was em
ployed to work on the Pinckney mur
der case and when he landed in Char
leston the Sunday News piimed a
badge upon his back worded, "I am
a detective, come and tell me who
killed Pinckney and bring me his
hat." The detective carried this badge
all over Charleston last Sunday so
that the people might know that the
Sunday News is so anxious to capture
the murderer it. actually advertises the
movements of the authorities free of
charge. Of course, whe- a dark and
dastardly crime has been cnmitted,
and it is believed that to keep down a
scandlal, truth should be hid, giving
publicity to the movements of a de
tective will aid quite effectually in
burying the truth. Now if there is
no scandal connected with the mur
der of Pmckney, and the Charleston
authorities want to find out who kill
ed Pinckney the Sunday News is
iving them such aid that in the event
of the murderer being caught the
Pinkerton will no doubt divide his
pay with that paper.
Is it not rather a strange procedure
for a newspaper to advertise the pres
ence of a detective when one is about
endeavoring to work out so great a
mystery as is the Pinckney myste
ry (?). Public opinion is so strong in
Charleston, and the prospect for a
miscarriage of justice so great, and
the people are so greatly incensed,
that the officers have come to the
conclusion, a show of some effort to
ferret out the murderer of Pinckney
must be made or a revolution in the
next municipal election will be the re
sult. The city administration sends
for a Pinkerton detective, and when
he comes he falls right in among
those who are suspected of tying to
suppress the truth to prevent light
being turned upon the dark myste
ry. To further prevent the true story
of the cause of Pinckney's death ever
reaching a court of justice, the pres
ence of the detective is made known
by the morning paper of that city,
which we have no doubt will have the
desired effect of making those who
"know anything" be guarded in their
movements and expressions, and of
course make the detective's task the
If there is an honest effort upon
the part of the authorities to get at
the truth of the Pinckney horror, the
Sunday News in our judgment made
a serious blunder in giving the pres
ence of the detective away, but if the
detective was only brought to Char
leston for a "bluff," then the "bluffers"
want the scheme carried out by let
ig the people interested know a
"Pinkerton man" is among them.
The friends of Mr. T. C. Willoughby
are exulting over the downfall of Col.
Neal and claiming that the disclos
ures are a vindication for Willough
b. We do not see where that comes
in, as Mr. Willoughby, actuated by
malice, made indiscriminate et arges
against Neal and at the investigation
utterly failed to substantiate them.
Now, without any specific charges, a
committee with an aim to be just to
the State and to Neal, take up the
entire business of the institution
from the very beginning and they
find a considerable amount of negli
gence and bad business management,
together with a shortage of funds,
none of which, as we recollect, were
among the specifications made by
Messrs. Willoughby and Allen at
that time. We do not, of course,
know what the flinal result of the in
vestigation will be, but up to the
present we do not see where the com
mittee have found true the charges
made by Willoughby several years
ago. As it is, it is bad enough, and
mortifying enough to Col. Neal's host
of friends who cannot help but feel
very sorry for him in his sad misfort
une and deep trouble. With all of
his faults and with the dark clouds oi
misfortune hanging over him he
is a man, and any one reading his
testimony must be impressed with
this fact, that Bill Neal's frank state
ments show that he did not intend to
do anything wrong. On the witness
stand he wvould not lie, but told the
truth, even when it wvas convicting
him There have been other wit
nesses upon the stand in court who
did not so favorably impress their
hearers with the truthfulness of their
oaths, and some of these made-indis
criminate charges, but failed when
the time came to specify, and now
that the party charged has been
found guilty of wrong-doing does not
carry with it a vindication of those

(From our Regular Correspondent.)
Washington, March 17.-Conster
nation was caused among some of the
War Department officials by some
of the testimony given before the
Military Court of Inquiry, in Chicago,
this week. There had evidently been
a weak spot somewhere in the Alger
coaching department, and it may re
sult in another court-martial for Ea
gan, the verdict of which Mr. McKin
lev will not dare to set aside or miti
gate, and serious trouble for other
officers who have been connected with
the Alger clique. Col. Smith, the
War Department purchasing agent
at Chicago, testified that lie bought a
lot of second class canned beef be
cause lie didn't know any better, also
that he bought all the canned beef he
bought by sample and trusted entire
ly to the honesty of the packers to
furnish it up to sample, and that can
ned roast beef was first purchased by
direct order of Gen. Eagan. But the
most damaging portion of his testi
mory was that Eagan in a numuber of
instances ignored him entirely and
bought by wire, without competition,
large quantities of canned roast beef.
The justification of Gen. Miles is fore
ing itself to the front notwithstanding
extraordinarv to keep it back.
The "nigger" in the canal legisla
tion of Congress is becoming visible
to the naked eye. The work done by
the Panama Canal company's lobby
ists in killing legislation for the con
struction of the Nicaragua and Pana
ma routes, is now being supplement
ed by other shrewd work towards
roping this country in as a partner
in the Panama Canal. As another
move in that direction Vbout sixty
Senators andl Representatives have
accepted invitations fir a month's
junket upon an elegant steamship,
as guests of the Panama Canal Co.,

ports of interest. Thie Panama Canal

scandal in France, brought about by

The absolute control exercised over
the machinery of the republican par
ty by Boss Hanna is shown by the
talk in Wasbington about Mr. Hobart
and the Republican national ticket.
next year. Mr. Hobart is not only
willing but anxious to have the old
ticket put up again, but there are
some objections, because of the un
broken rule of changing the tail of
the ticket. Hanna will settle the
matter before 1r. Hobart leaves his
Thomasville house, where he is a
guest with Mr. and Mrs. McKinley,
and the strangest thing about it is
the ready acquiescence of prominent
Republic.ans in his right to do so.
One of the latter speaking about it in
the most. matter-of-fact tone said: "If
Hanna decides that Hobart shall nut
be nominated again, you may look
for an announcement from Hobart
before delegates to the national con
vention are elected to the effect that
his private business demands his at

needed if the decision is for the old
W~hen Admiral Hligginson wrote a
letter declining the promotion given
to him because the nominations of
his brother officers for similar pro
motions had not been acted upon by
tbe Senate, while his had been con
firmed, the country expressed its ad
miration for the extraordiaary dis
play of magnanimity; when Sampson
made an attempt to square himself
by following with a letter to the See
retary of the Navy, suggesting that
his name be left out of the promo
tions sent to the Senate, at the next
session of Congress, the country gave
him the ha! ha! of derision. The
public is often humbugged, but in
these two cases it correctly sized up
the genuine and the imitation with
out a moment's hesitation or a single
pointer, other than the letters of the
two men and what anybody knew of
their records. Sampson cannot live
long enough to live down the bad
opinion the people have had of him
ever since it became known that he
deliberately attempted to appropriate
to himself honors which he knew be
longed to Schley, and in order to do
so did not hesitate to attempt to
blacken the record of Schley. Fair
play is something that many do not
get, but he who does not believe in it
and practice it is uzuworthy to be
called an American.
Anti-imperialists would feel more
like rejoicing over the American vic
tories over the Fillipinos during the
the present week wvere it not for the
loss of good American blood in the
fighting that led up to those vieto
ries and their belief that it wvas lust in
a cause t hat is so unwise and their fur
ther belief that rmore will have to be
continually lost, either through fight
ing or disease, as long as we keep
those islands and try to control their
semi-sava&ge inhabitants. American
bravery will always thrill American
hearts; but in this case it is, in many
minds, accompanied by a regret that
it had not been displayed in a more
worthy cause than in whipping an in
ferior people into subjection to us.

- School Interest.
Office of State Supt. Education,
Columbia, S. C., March 8, 1899.
Dear Sir: The Legislature has
given $5,000 to be expended for the
"better instruction of the teachers of
the public schools." This, in addi
tion to the resources heretofore de
pended upon, should enale us to
bring within the reach of every
teacher a first class summer normal
school of several weeks' duration.
Surely no oine charged with the re
sponsibility of training the youth of
the land can fail to welcome gladly
the opportunity to attain to a higher
eliciency. If any should refuse to
gain this better preparation offered
Lhem free by the State, they will
hardly be deserving of longer em
ployment. The State Board of Edu
cation has ample power to require of
teachers, as a pre-requisite to re
newal of certificates, whatever pro
fe4sional study it may deem neces
sary. The following standing rule,
ad.,pted in 1897, is now the law:
"dectiou 18. A first grade certifi
cate may ;e renewed by the county
board froma which it was issued. If,
however, a teachers' institute or sum
mer school is held in the county, a
first grae certificate shall not be re
tCwCd unless tw holder atted(Is the

Regulatious may in time be adop
ted that will go farther and entirely
relieve the county boards of the
drudgery of the actual examination
of applicants for teachers' certificates,
by substituting examination by the
conductors of the summer normal
school, who would report results to
the county board. It is to the inter
t.st of the teachers that examination
shouUd be preceded by and based
upon a eurse of study. It would be
likewise well for the county board of
education to be freed from the petty
labors of a board of examiners, that
it may have more time to devote to
the larger work contemplated in the
scope of its powers.
As a valuable adjunct to the sum
mer normal tchool in providing for
the "better instruction of the teach
ers of the public schools," ws must
look to the organization and develop
meut of the teachers' association in
each county. This as an agency in
fitting the teachers for the more suc
cessful discharge of their duties to
the children and to the State, is rec
ognized by our school law as a part
of our sclhool system, under the di
rection of the county superintendents
and the State Superintendent. See
tion 16 of the act of '96 provides: "It
shall be the duty of each county su
perintendent of education to aid the
teachers in all proper eff-rts to im
prove themselves in their profession.
Foi this purpose he shall encourage
the formation of associations of teach
ers for common improvement and
conduct teachers' institutes. He

ciation and give such advice and in

and management as in his judgment
will contribute to their greater effi

tendent "to visit every county in the
State as often as practicable for the
purpose of inspecting the schools,
awakening an interest favorable to
the cause of education, and diffusing
as widely as possible, by public ad
dresses and personal communication
with school officers, teachers and pa
relts, a knowledge of existing defects
and of desirable improvements in the
government and instruction of said
Understanding that in some coun
ties teachers' associations are still
lacking, and wishing where they al
ready exist to speak a word of on
couragement to them, I propose to
make a tour of all the counties as
soon as possible, and to meet the
teachers at their county-seat. I shall
lay before them the plan of work of
the summer normal school and sug
gestions for the more efficient opera
tion of their teachers' associations.
For the present I refer to only the
white teachers. All should be pres
ent in order thoroughly to under
stand what it is proposed both to do
for them and to require of them. By
the normal college extension contem
plated, the teachers will be the imme
diate beneficiaries of valuable educa
tional facilities which the majority
have never been permitted to enjoy
or to hope for; but the teachers will
have to bear the burden of giving
themselves to special study (at some
personal cost) of which ultimately
the beneficiaries will be the children
in every farm house. I rely upon the
support and co-operation of the teach
ers and wvish at the outset to) me-et
each one face to face. Were the
meetings in the county held onm Sat
urday onlv, it would take me nearly
a ear to'make the round. Feeling
th'e necessity of going from county to
county without loss of time and tray
c-I, I must ask each county board to
order the suspension of schools on
the day to be named by mue, without
deduction of pay from +ihose teachers
who attend the meeting thus called.
Trhe question before us is of vital con
Icern to the teachers and I trust they
Iwill exert themselves to be pr esent.
It would be most helpful if I could
also meet with the trustees. They
are the immediate gurardians of our
eduational interests and I feel the
need of consultatibn with them. The
planting season is at hand and farm
work is pressing; but will they not
gi-e one day to a conference with me
looking to the advancement of the
