The General Assembly will con
vene on the 9)th inst, and the people
are looking forward to our law mnak
ers to do something to put a quietus
to the everlastii.; liquor question.
Whether anything will be done re
mains to be seen. Some politicians
are perfectly content with existing
conditions because it gives them a
a theme to harangue the people, but
the people are tired of this constant
picking on one string, and they ex
pect, our- law makers to devise some
plan which will give aspirants for of
fice something else besides the liquor
question to talk about. By permit
ting the people to legislate the liquor
business to suit their conditions, the
question is taken out of the halls of
the General Assembly, and matters
of graver importance can be attended
to more properly. If we could get
the liquor question placed into the
hands of the people of each county
to determine for themselves, many:
days of the session at $1000 per day
would be cut off, and the money
saved to the taxpayers. We do not
know just what will be done, but we
do realize that if the legislators are inI
close touch with their constituezts,
they know there is much dissatisfac
tion among them in regard to the
p~resent system of controlling liquor.
A change is demanded and ought to
come, but whether the present Gen
eral Assembly has the courage to
make the change will be known later.
While our business men are ore
paring for another year, it would oe
well for them to consider the advisa
bility to organize a cotton manufac
turing establishment. It needs no
argument to show that such an insti
tution will be of great advantage to
all of our business interests, and we
feel satisfied that with the proper
effoits, money enough can be raised
at home, to induce capital from
abroad to join with us. There is no
sensible reason why 3Manning should
be without a cotton mill, and it
should be one large enough -to util
ize all of the cotton grown in this
county. Take the present cotton
season, and see the difference paid
for cotton in towns where mills are
established, and those where there
are no such institutions, and it is
seen at a glance the advantage to be
derived. There is only one way to
get a cotton mill in MIanning, and
that is for our business men to come
together, and by a practical demon
stration show their earnestness. If
this is done we honestly believe,
ground will be broken for a cotton
vested. This town is no longer a
little village, we are looking forward
to a growth, and the amount of busi
ness increase already had, is an index
to the future if we but take the pro
MAJOR LAND HAS CROSSED TH E
Died yesterday morning at his
home in Foreston, Major C. S. Land,
aged 66 years.
Major Ceth Smith Land was born
in Edgecombe county, N. C., Dec. 9,
1833, and came to South Carolina
April 1, 1855. On January 3, 1861, as
a private he was mustered into the
service of the State in the company
of Capt. John G. Pressley, Gregg's
First regiment of volunteers, and was
at the siege and capture of Fort
Sumter, the 12th to 14th of April,
1861. On December 13, 1861, he
became first lieutenant of Captain
Byrd's company of Williamsburg
volunteers, which formed a part of
Manigault's battalion. Upon the
general reorganization of the Con
federate army in May, 1862, for ser
vice during the war, he was elected
captain of his company, which later
became a part of the Twenty-sixth
regiment of South Carolina volun
teers. The Twenty sixth regiment
formed a part of the brigade of Gen.
Johnson Hagood and remained in
camp at Church Flats, aiding to
guard the coast of South Carolina
until May, 1863, when it was trans
ferred to the brigade of Gen. N. G.
Evans, and ordered to duty at Jack
son, Miss., where it became a part of
the army of Gen. Joseph E. John
ston, being marshaled to relieve the
army of General Pemberton, then
besieged in Vicksburg. Before
reaching there Vicksburg. had fallen
and the army retreated to Jackson,
where the scatteied and depleted
army of Johnston arrived on July
8th, footsore and famished. From
the 9th to the 16th of July the 7,000
or 8,000 men of Johnston's army
held the long line of intrenchments
around Jackson against four or five
times that number of the enemy and
daily repelled every assault made
upon them. It was here that the
cool courage and soldierly qualities
of Captain Land were displayed. By
his excellent behavior under fire and
his. acts of daring, he won the conti
dence and admiration of the soldiers
and officers of the regiment, and ever
afterward proved himself one of the
bravest of the brave. The men of
his company idolized their captain,
and all the regiment admired him.
Of a stalwart frame and vigorous
constitution, he was at home in the
hardships and fatigues of the rough
est campaign, always ready for fa
tigue duty or the clash of battle
During the war he was never in hos
pital or on sick leave of absence. In
March, 1864, the brigade was or.
dered to Virginia. It was balted at
Weldon, N. C., and sent to Kinston
on the Neuse river to join General
Hoke in his expedition against New
Bern. Before the assault on the
toun could he made the brigade was
ordered in great haste to Petersburg
to meet the critical movement of
General Butler between the A ppo
mattox and James rivers. On the
20th the brigade had a severc enr
gagement with the troops of General
Butler at Weir Bottom church in~
front of Bermuda Hundred, lasting
all day. After this came the service
in the trenches around Petersburg,
lasting, as the siege did, fromr June
16, 1864, to April 2, 1865, during
which time the besieged were under
incessant fire day and night. Many
passages of arms of a spirited nature
occurred during this period, but the
most noted event was the springing
of the mine and the battle ensuing,
called the battle of the Crater. Cap
tain Land was conspicuous for gal
latry in this bloody conflict, being
twice, though slightly, wounded. For
his conspicuous gallantry he was pro
moted to the office of major of the
Judge J. 11. Hudson of Bennetts
ville who was lieutenant-colonel of
the Trwenty-sixth South Carolina
regiment, writes of Major Land as
follows: "lie was possessed of great
owers of endurance, was never sick,
always ready for duty, andl was
cheerful, contented and happy', a
jolly companion, a gay soldier, a good
fighter, a good disciplinarian; but
kind to his men and jealous of their
As soon as Bushirod Johnson's di
vision of decimated, routed troops
could be got together, Major Land
was placed in command of the skir
mishers of the division and he con
tinued marching and daily fighting
until Lee's surrender at Appomattox
Court House, where the few an
vivors were paroled.
Major Land returned home and
went to work to repair his ruined
fortunes, and by dint of hard work
and good management succeeded be
yond his expectations. He for many
years filled the position of comn
mander of Camp Harry Benbow, U.
C. V., of Clarendon county. Socially
and politically he has ever borne
himself well and impressed himself
upon his neighbors and acquaint
ances as a true man. H~e was mar
i-ied Sept. 19, 1860, to Miss Mary
Jane Tbigpen and they have three
children living: John C. Ceth S.,
Jr., and Dora Ada, now Mrs. Charles
M. Mason, of Foraston.
Major Land took an active part in
the redemption of the State from
Radical rule, was county chairman of
the Democratic party of the couuty,
and was one of the party's wisest
counselors. The people, appreciat
ing his worth and his services, of
fered several times to elect him to
public office, but he declined and~
would not consent to accept any poi
aition other than a place on the Con
federate pension board, and this only,
that he might aid in securing pen
ions for Confederate soldiers.
Major Land was kind-hearted anid
true to his friends and a great help
to the poor. His funeral took place
this morning at Foreston, the town
which he founded.

Special to THE TImEs:
On last Thursday evening, the
Summerton Dramatic Club played
"Iferoic Dutchman of '25" before a
large and appreciative assemblage of
the people of our villiage and com
munity. The club was especially
fortunate in the selection of this com
edy and in the acting of the several
members of the club. And they are
much encouraged by the kind words
of many present. They play is such
a good one, and has been so wc-l pre
pared, that the club has decided to
take it to M-iuning about the 12th ,f
January and, later to Clarendon.

Editor THE TIMEs:
Please permit me space in the col
umus of your invaluable paper to tell
of the meeting of the Reformed
Methodist Union Episcopal church
conference at this place. This body
of colored ministers which met here
on the 13th inst. was the first of the
kind ever convened at L'vke Citv.
They were the most orderly set of
colored ministers we have ever seen.
The bishop, Rt. Rev. E. Russell Mid
dleton, who was ordained by Bishop
P. F. Stevens of the Reformed Epis
copal church in Charleston, Decem
ber 5tl, to the Episcopate, is quite a
polite, Christian gentleman. He
seems adequate to the task commit
ted to him. le rejoices in the satis
faction of being a Southerner and
for this reason lie --laims that his
church is entitled to the sanction and
support of all Southern citizens. We
had the pleasure of listening to a
very practical and forcible discourse
by him on last Sunday morning, Dec.
17th. His text was taken from I Cor.,
4th chapter, 20th verse: "For the
kingdom of God is not in the word,
but in power," after wvich the fol
lowing candidates were called before
the altar and ordaiied: Revs. A. S.
Boston, L. S. Coleman, W. C. Ker
shaw, J. J. Mitchell, as elders, and
Washington Wilson, J. A. Anderson,
S. R. Thomas, deacons.
After the completiou of a few minor
inatters the usual resolutions of
thanks were submitted and the ap
pointments were issued, the Confer
ence adjourned sine die. 3MER.

Twentieth Century Fund Collections
ME~mPms, Dec. :3.-Bishop W. W.
Duncan of Spartanburg, S. C., passed
through Memphis last night. The
bishop was on his way home to spend
the Christmas holidays, and was return
ing from the Methodist conference at
Speaking of the work of the confer
ence and the progress of the twentieth
century thank offering, he said that
the conference had been well attended
and was highly successful. A contri
bution, he said, had been collected at
the conference for the fund and he felt
assured that the southern conferences
from the church would make up their
quota of $1,500,000.
The present status of the fund was
highly gratifying to those having the
collection work in charge and the col
lections were progressing at a satisfac
tory rate. The bishop said that South
Carolina was doing sier part nobly and
that in the South Carolina conference
the sum of $20,000 had been collected.
CONSTA3LE KILLS A NEGRO.
Pursues Hirn Through the Streets and
COLUIIA, S. C., Dec. 23.-Lawyers,
Christmas shoppers and visiting coun
try people heard lead whizz on Law
Range yesterday and there was wild
scatteration. Constable Bishop lost his
head pursuing a negro charged with
moving a crop under lien. He pulled
his pistol and fired down the sidewalk.
He chased the negro into a lawyer's
office, shooting two shots in the office.
The negro was caught and taken back
into the magistrate's office. Soon after.
wards he felt on his back and saw blood
on his hands, then on his abdomen, and
found blood there. He coolly told the
"I am a dead man, please send me
home to die in bed."
This was done. He died last night.

SAVANNAH, Dec. 23.-Mayor Herman

rather startling to several members of

worst sort, the kind that lay for their
victims and tempt them with interest

the detectives that the fakirs must be
