THE CRY OF STOP THIEF.
That was a terrible tongue
lashing Senator Hopkins admin
isfered to Senator Tillman the
other day in the senate, but the
Illinois Senator didn't do a thing
but, play into the South Caro
linians hands when he charged
him with the disfranchisement
of negroes. Necessity is thel
mother of invention and it was ne
cessity that invent the means to
ensure white supremacy inSouth
Carolina. This was obtained be
fore Tillman became a political
factor in this State. It began
when Hampton headed the col
umn. of red shirts and swore "By
the eternal God I will be Gov
ernor." Then followed McCready
of Charleston with his eight box
la*and our registration system.
Tillman, up to then, was un
known and unheard of, the bat
tle was fought and won before he
came on the stage of action.Four
teen years later and with white
supremacy firmly fixed, Tillman
.caie along, and securing con
troldrove off those who bore the
brunt and heat of battle, and he,
and'his friends called a consti
tutional convention, which was
made up of Tillman's friends and
foes; it was in this conven
tion our present suffrage system
was engrafted in the fundamen
tal-law. We, therefore, cannot
see why Tillman s h o ul d be
chi-ged with disfranchising ne
groes when they were disfran
chised before Tillman was po
litically born. -
Tillmanassumest he credit how
ever,and enjoys being acknowl
edged as the author of negro
disfranchisement, and whenever
a Northern or a Western Sena
tor twits him with the charge,he
uniitentionally strengthens Till
man at home. Those who know
why..the negro is not allowed the
ballot in this State do not blush
-w h-e-n our Representative is
charged with the crime (?)
There are other things Sena
tor Hopkins might hurl at the
-South~ Carolina Senator which
would be more effective than
throwing up Tillman's "we shoot
'em and we burn 'em" utterances;
while our senior senator is as
suming the role of moral monitor
forf the whole country, clean
sing the corruption from the na
tional banks, railroads and other
thisigs 'too numerous to men
tion,he. s h o u 1d be reminded
.to not neglect the accummu
lated filth before his own door.

TiieVote on the subsidy bill
for. the Southern railroad was
-very close, in the House, but it
passed, and it is now in the
Senate.' Senator Tillman said it
was nothing but a steal, buIt it
wa-a- steal that comes our .way
andts~ will vote for it. If it is a
ste~aas the Senator says, why
be ( party to the steal? Senator
Lajim-ner will also vote for it, be
cause he says, his people want
himi to. The people want Sena
tor.:-Latimer to vote for a subsidy
to a rairoad company, and yet
when John L. McLaurin inti
mated he favored a subsidy to
end'durage American shipping,
so.'that that the product of the
Soiahern farmer might find
mere markets and cheaper
freight facilities, both Tillman
and Latimer ~charged him with
going' over to the enemy and
being a Republhcan.
We do not know whether a
subsidy for the Southern rail
road is a steal or not, or what
interest Senator Tillman has in
* that -corporation. or if he has
any, but we do know that Sena
tor Latimer has a son, who grad
uated at law, ,and without hay
ingpleaded a case in a court of
law, was given a lucretive posi
tion in the, law department of
th4 Southern railroad with
headquarters at Atlanta, and it
was this same Latimer whose
political stock-in-trade was the
denunciation of corporations.
It is iust such conduct as this

A letter from Hon. Geo. S.
Legare who is resting at Pick
ens, brings the glad intelligence
that his health is improving
rapidly, "getting well, improv
ing daily; sleep well at night,
good appetite and cough almost
entirely gone." There has been
considerable anxiety- about Mr.
Legare's condition. He con
tracted a severe case of grip in
Washington, and it was feared it
would result seriously, but he
is better, and is watching after
the interests of South Carolina
in his mountain retreat almost
as well as if he were in Wash

Dr. Sampson Pope died at his
home in Newberry last Sunday
night. He was a man of fine
ability, and he was one of the
main pillars in the Reform move
ment. He. did more and got less
than any of the original signers
of the Shell manifesto. His bad
treatment from the -Reform1
leaders, and his disappointment
caused him to leave the Demo -
cratic party, become an Indepen
dent, and later a Republican. It
is said that he was such a strong
partisan, that when the dispen
sary law was passed, he slipped
the bill under his shirt, jumped
into a carriage and hurried it to
the governor's mansion for Till
man's signature, fearing all the
time that something would hap
pen to the bill before it became
a law. Two years later he was
one of the bitterest opponents of
the dispensary in the state. Not
withstanding his bitter partisan
ship,he was regarded honest and
sincere. He was an enthusiast.
It will be gratifying indeed to
those who followed Hampton in
1876, and helped him to drive
the money changers from the
temple, to know that Hon. Leroy
F. Youmans, who is now filling
out the unexpired term of the
lamented U. X. Gunter, as At
torney General, has consented to
become a candidate for this posi
tion requiring the best of legal
talent. General Youmans, is not
only a most profound lawyer,
but sa man of the highest integ
ity, and in our judment, South
Darolina will do herself proud in
electing him to the office. It
should be known that General
Youmans was among the law

States Courts and pleaded with
out pay, for those who were be

played in capturing this govern

The Democratic clubs are to

delegates to the county conven

white tax payer to take an inter

to the county convention. It is
at the club meetings where the
foundation for good or bad gov

do not interest themselves, the
spoilsmen will have the making
of, and handling of the party ma
ahinery. If corruption gets into
bhe government, and results in
incompetent officers, bad roads,

indifference on the part of the

I want to say to those who did not

Business suspended, even the drug
stores closed for the game; the crowc.
was large, including trany ladies, an.
all laughed enough to last a mont i.
Chief Briggs discovered he could not
hit the ball, claimed the pitcher
did not know which side of him was
front, and he got his bases on balls.
Senator Davis did a circus stunt be
tween third base and home plate, and
scored. Mr. Joe Broadway warned
the basemen to get out of his way or he
would run over them. Mayor Z&nyth
made it around the diamond on badly
thrown balls, and came home on spavin
ed legs. Mr. Vernon Scarborough
made a double play. Mr. Mannmng
Richardson got a finger out of repair,
but be did not complain. He can take

was a good player "befo de war." Mr.

Finnish Marriage Fetes.
Marriage fetes in Finland, as in Nor
way, are often prolonged for several
days, even among folk of humble rank.
One peculiarity, which may excite more
surprise than approval among eligible
suitors In our own country, Is that the
Finnish lover never himself "pops the
question" to the girl of his choice. The
momentous proposal Is made through a
third person, called the "talman," to
whom the happy couple give a present
when his delicate mediation proves suc
cessful and ends In a wedding. Not un
commonly their gift to the talman takes
the unromantic form of a shirt
In like manner the clergyman who
presides over the nuptial service re
ceives a simple and inexpensive pres
ent, often a handkerchief and a pair of
warm hair gloves. A similar gift Is be
stowed upon the officiating priest at
funerals. Tlpon these mournful occa
eons the service is exceedingly simple
-more so than would satisfy the views
of British undertakers-but the burial
is, as a rule, followed by large ho.,gital
Ity on the part of the bereaved family.

monuments known to the archaeolo
gists. From a distance It looks like an
immense rock rising from the plains of
Carissa, but upon hearer approach it
is seen to be a temple of extraordinary
dimensions and of unknown antiquity.
The inner court has a level floor 225
feet long and 125 feet wide, and the
ceiling is from 60 to 100 feet high, ac
cording to situation. The building was
evidently used by prehistoric man, but
for' what purpose and how long since
no one knows. It has been suggested,
however, thatit was either a temple of
worship or the capitol of some ancient
government. The walls and portions
of the ceiling are beautifully decorated
with paintings in colors red, white and
black, many of them supposed to have
some symbolic meaning.
Christmns In England.
When Cromwell ruled England he is
sued an edict against all festivities at
Christmas. The festival was altogetly
er abolished, and the displaying of hol
ly and mistletoe and other emblems of
the happy time was held to be sedi
tious. In 1644 the long parliament
commanded that Christmas day shoUld
be observed as a strict fast, when all
people should think over and deplore
the great sin of which they and their
forefathers had been guilty t making
merry at that season. This act so pro
voked the people that on the following
natal day the law was violently re
sisted in many places. Though these
scenes were disgraceful, they served
their purpose and put an end to an un
just order. When Charles II. regained
the throne the vpulace once more
made Christmastide a time of rejoic
The Great Bea of Ware.
In Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night"
Sir Toby Belch urges Sir Andrew Ague
cheek to pen a challenge and to put In
it "as many lies as will lie in the sheet
of paper, although the sheet were big
enough for the bed of Ware." This
enormous bed, which was a wonder In
Shakespeare's time and still exists In
Ware, is seven feet six inches high and
ten feet nine inches square, so that
twelve people can lie comfortably in it
Beautifully carved, it is a splendid
specimen of antique furniture, dating
from the days of Queen Elizabeth,
This wonderful bed is naturally an ob
ject of curiosity and interest to many
visitors. In the same room there hung
a pair of horns, upon which all stran
gers formerly were sworn.
