THE GRIDIRONS IN CHARLESTON.
The News and Courier of last Mon
day celebrated New Years day in a
most fitting manner. Governor-Gen
eral Hemphill was taken in hand and
his great paper was steered by the
committee on "Drinkology and Jag
ology.' The readers of our metro
politan contemporary were introduc
ed to "a modern band of forty
thieves," and given a history of the
city's guests-the famous Gridiron
club. If E. W. Barrett of the Bir
mingham Age-Herald has just ar
rived from home it would not sur
prise us if he had something besides
his undershirt concealed beneath his
vest. The committee on "rounding
them up and running them in" should
have required "Musical Director
Henry Xander" to thump the breast
of Barrett to ascertain. "Robert
Lincoln OBrien of the Boston Trans
cript" should have been forced by
the same committee to declare wheth
er it was him or Senator Tillman that
charged the Prohibitionists with be
ing hypocrites and cowards. Then
"Frank Presbrey of New York should
conspire with the committee on
"Railroad ties and sleepers" to hide
in a ditch, and assassinate Governor
General Hemphill, for giving it out
that he is one of the "forty thieves"
Alexander Mosher "First tenor Grid
iron quartette" ought never have been
allowed to escape without having first
sung~that beautiful opera entitled "I
ain't like you no how" and his other
favorites entitled "what a difference
in the morning" and "thou art so
near, and yet so far." Beriah WVil
kins of the Washington Post might
have been hauled up before the com
mittee on "deception, high jinks, and
jocularity," and required to account
for his flexible mind, and why it was
that he did not make Barrett of the
Birmingham Age-Herald empty out
that valise, and show up the docu
mentary evidence claimed to be con
tained therein. J. Henry Kaiser
"Baritone Gridiron Quartet te" mA
d ais guests on why
is it that South Carolina will persist
in keeping him out of Congress, when
all that is needed would be to change
the Congressional map. L. A. Cool
idge Boston Journal might have in
troduced a resolution to have the
committee on "Drinkology and Jag
ology" to raid the blind tigers, and
all contraband seized, deposited with
the committee on "Picknicing under
the Palms," the names of the mem
bers of the Gridirons, found with li
quor in their elothes, or snoozing un
der tables in blind tigers to be re
ported to the next meeting of the
club. Henry Litchfield West, Wash
ington Post, no doubt reported fully
to the committee on railroad ties and
sleepers what it would cost to carry
a trunk from Columbia to Smoakes,
and the report will probably be print
ed for the edification of H. R. Thom
as who seemed anxious to know last
Summer. J. Harry Cunningham,
Gridiron Cartoonist might have
painted a picture of a defeated can
didate for Congress, and could have
also demonstrated to the satisfaction
of the club, how worthless certificates
and affidavits are in a primary elec
tion, instead of helping a man in
whose interests they are obtained,
they act as a rock around his neck to
sink him. Prof. Edwin B. Hay, no
torious Public-an of the Gridiron
club should have had his fine pair of
horses with him--'Ingratitude and
Treachery," and taken Senator Till
man, and wanted-to-be Senator
John Gary Evans out for a drive
on King street, tbat crowded
promenade would have been de
lighted to have seen such a distin
guished trio, behind such magnifi
cient horses. A. J. Stofer Jr, Scripmp
MRea Press Association might have
read an easay, "The reason why
local self government is not a good
thing for the, people, unless it is
wanted in communities which can be
controlled by men who agree with
modesty could have been broken into
long enough to have gotten him to
tell why lie opposes the "Appelt local
option bill after admitting the nee
essity for a change on account of the
mismanagement of the present dis
The Gridirons were exceedingly
fortunate in having along with them
Reginald Schroder of the New York
Staats--Zeitung, and from his pic
ture in the News and Courier, we
would advise the Germania lBrewing
Co., to bar its doors, and hang out a
sign "Nine mine-heer-Nix, C umerous.
No admittance heint."
There are many other characters
among the forty thieves that swooped
down upon Charleston last Monday
which we would like to touch upon.,
but our space forbids, besides, none
of the Gridiron brand has been sent
us, and we cannot work up our mer
ry box sufficiently to do justice to
General Buller did not eat Christ
mas dinner at Ladysmith as he
boasted he would do, and if the
Boers continue with their successes
he may yet have to eat his next
Christmas dinner in a Boer prison.
With the New Year let everybody
resolve to make 1900 an epoch-mak
ing year. Let all of our farmers and
merchants turn in to push Clarendon
into the progressive procession. It
can be done, we have the material at
hand and let us use it.
The General Assembly meets next
week and under the constitution it
cannot hold longer than forty days.
In our opinion there is no necessity
to remain in session longer than
twenty-five days; the business can be,
if the members will work, finished in
that time. It costs $1,000 a day to
run the General Assembly and if the
people can persuade the members to
cut short their stay in Columbia,
every day cut short will be that many
thousand dollars saved to the tax
In some of the Southern States
there is being considered to exclude
negroes from the public schools, un
less they pay their proportion of the
cost. This is reasonable and right,
for we cannot see why the negroes
should get equal school advantages
with the whites when the whites pay
most of the cost. Many contend that
in educating the negro lies the only
hope of rescue from some of the ills
beneath which the South groans, but
that race has been free now for over
a quarter of a century and a new
generation has sprung up that has
had erual advantages with the
whites; it is about time now for them
to feel the responsibility and they
should be made to pay their propor
tion of the cost to run the public
During our absence, attending the
General Assembly, Mr. J. HL. Lesesne
has kindly consented to assume edi
torial control of THE TIMES. Mr.
Lesesne needs no in roduction to the
readers of this paper as he has edited
it on former occasions. Last year we
attempted to attend to our public du
ties and run the newspaper also, and
we found it most too much. Tn
upon being able to secure the servi
ces of Mr. Lesesne and we beg our
friends throughout the county to send
in news items. THE TES~ must be
kept up to the high standard it now
enjoys, and we believe our friends
will aid us to accomplish this result.
We will, every week, send to the pa
per a letter from Columbia to keep
our readers posted on what is going
on at the capitol, and any sugges
tions from our constituents will be

To the Veterans of Camp Harry Ben
My Comrades - It becomes my
painful duty to announce to you the
death of your vice-commander, true
friend and counsellor, Major Cetb
Smith Land who, too, has crossed
the river and rests in the shade upon
the other shore. He was for many
years the devoted commander and
organizer of this camp, and his devo
tion and zeal never flagged to thie
end. As a member of the Pension
Board he pressed with untiring in
terest the honest claims of our hum
ble poor and cheered and comforted
them with material aid. Tbe tidings
of his death has carried sorrow and
foreboding to the lowly cottages of
We shall grievously miss him at
our reunions; his genial presence, his
cordial greeting, his fraternal clasp
of the hand. But, my comrades, as
the years roll by we shall be called
upon more frequently to pause by
the fresh made grave of him who has
at last succumbed to that grim mon
ster he faced upon a hundred battle
fields for love of home and country.
In testimony of our love of our de
parted brother and grief at his death,
it is ordered that the usual badge of
mourning be worn by this camp for
thirty days and that a page in our
minute book be inscribed to his
