The Beginning of Develoi.ment.
The Wittekind with her cargo
of human freight has at last ar
rived, and we hope the experi
ment of bringing to our South
ern shores these peeple from
across the Atlantic will result in
being the beginning of a tide of
i-st class immigrants to the
South. where respecta ble and in
telligent white labor is so sadly
needed to take the place of the
shiftless negro who is fast leav
ing the fields to loaf in the towns
Col. E. J. Watson. commis
.sioner of immigration. deserves
the well done of his fellow citi
zens for the valuable service he
has rendered the State in this,the
initial step of a great movement,
a movement which if successful,
will be the material salvation of
the South. But while Colonel
Watson has done much. and de
serves the major portion of the
credit. for he will be expected
to see to st that the people he
brought from their far away
homes are given proper treat
ment, there are others deserv
ing of praise for their encourage
ment of this great work. The
News and Courier, and the Co
lumbia State have at all times
strongly advocated the holding
up of Commissioner Watson's
hands, and we believe the many
well written articles in these
two newspapers on the subject
of immigratiou had much to do
with allaying opposition in the
State, and was a factor in aiding
the Commissioner in his work of
showing to these aliens the ad
vantages the South had to offer
them. We rejoice with the News
and Courier in this progressive
movement. and -find pleasure in
reproducing its first editorial af
ter the arrival of the "Witte
wATSON BRINGS IN THLE WITTEKIND.
Hats oE to Col. E. J. Watson. Com
missioner of Immigration for South
Carolina. He has performed the most
valuable service for this State. a ser
vice that entitles him to the thanks of
all our people. He camne into this port
- ve'sterday morning on board the North
German'ship Wittekind, bringing with
him about five hundred desirable peo
ple for settlement in South Carolina. A
more carefully selected~promising com
pany of immigrants has never been
janded at any port in theUnited States.
There was not one anarchist among
them, not a single pauper or dependent
person, not one who will find the pro
cess of assimilation into American citi
zenship other than a pleasant exercise.
They came with their trunks and boxes
and'baskets, filled with such store of
household goods as they could trans
port with them to this land pf promise,
not as contract laborers, but at the in
vitation of this State. and with the as
surance from its ottcial representative
that they would find abundant oppor
tunity here for profitable employment.
Coming under such auspices the! are
entitled to receive, and will receive,
ample protection and encouragement
from the State.
Among the immigrants there are
men, women and children, entire fami
lies and single persons, all intent upon
becoming citizens of this State and
country and aiding in the development
of our marvellous material resources.
There were skilled operatives in the
cargo yesterday, all of whom have al
ready found work in the cotton mills of
the State. gardeners and farmers,work
ers in iron, machinists, glaziers, car
pentcers, laborers and servints, men
and women who have been trained in
their callings and who will find work
exactly adapted to their several talents
and a fair reward for their services
wherever they are placed. One superb
family of nine persons was laided as
soon as the ship reached her wharf
that, in the opinion of the UnitedStates
Commissioner of Labor, are worth at
le'-.st $10,000 to the State of South Caro
lina, and' there were other families in
the lot who will make ideal citizens.
They were all in the best humor and
it was noted by those who saw them
how many refined faces there w'ere
among the vovager-s and how many
well-dressed people came ashore. They
did not all speak the same tongue, but
they were all evidently moved by the
same spirit 0f enterprise, the spirit
wvhich has built up the great West. the
spirit which will build up speedily the
greater South. One of the immigra
tion omeiers who came to Charleston to
show us how to manage the business,
said yesterday that he had never seen
a finer shipload of immigrants and he
rejoiced with the people of this State
that so many potential American citi
zens had been added to the population
of this Commonwealth.
There was a great deal of animation
at the immigration pier yesterday. The
adjoining wharves and all the ap
proaches wer-e filled all day with an in
terested crowd of spectators and on the'
head of the pier at which the Witte
kind lay there were groups of men who
had come to Charleston from different
points to talk to Commissioner Sargent
about further immigration to theSouth,
manufacturers in search of weavers for
their mills, the Immigration Commis
sioner of North Carolina, to take notes -
of how eas'- it is to handle immigrants
at this port, housekeepers in search of
good servants, farmers looking out for
intelligent foremen for their farms,
lumber manufactu.rers -ready to give
employment to any competent men who
would like to engage in this industry,
and men who were ready to liud profit
able employment for all who wanted to
make a new start here.
Too much praise cannot be bestowed
upon Commissioner Sargent and his ac
complished assistants. The South, and
particularly Charleston and South Car
olina. ai-e under lasting obligations to
him for the intelligent interest he has
takeni in this first experiment at direct
immimration to the South. His splen
did spirit has proved infectious. He
has worked with Commissioner Watson
most ear-nestly and with the best in
fluence upon the situation and to him
we owe the most sincere thanks. To

tismovemlent a success we wish to ex
press the thanks of the people of this
city and the South. It is the beginning
really of a new South and these pion
eers are richly deserving of our most
profound gratitude. If we could only
make Commissioner General Sargent
and his aides permanent residents of
Charleston there would never be any
doubt that the South would be filled
speedily with, the best of the peoples
in Europe; but as we shall not be able
to keep them here very long we must
give the most earnest heed to their
good counsel and try to live up to the
promises they have made for us and the
faith they have in us.
'Special trains left the city last night
for different points in the State carry

They were all very happy and content

The many crimes committed in
the rural communities in this
State deserves serious attention.
and while it may seem that there
is a plenty of statutory law to
reach these crimes, there is not
that distribution of protection
to meet the demands in order
that crime may be prevented as
much as possible, and where
committed, the lack of a proper
machinery to execute the law
quickly, affords opportunity for
escape, thus emboldening the
It has been suggested that the
legislature provide a rural police,
and it is argued that such officers
will be largely instrumental in
preventing criminals . from es
caping, but the advocates of
such a system do not reckon up
,on the cost. A rural police to
be efficient must be mounted and
on guard duty all of the time. It
would not be practical for the
lack of means to support it. In
stead of a rural police force in
each county doing patrol duty, it
has occurred to us that the legis
lature might give authority to
the three township assessors,
making them justices of the
peace. authorized by law to com
mand the peace in case of a dis
turbance and also giving to them
the authority to issue warrants,
and appoint constables to exe
cute their warrants, having it so
the constable making an arrest
under a warrant issued by one of
these justices, must take the
prisoner before the nearest magis
trate. This plan would provide
three law-officers in each town
ship with power to furnish the
means for the immediate- appre
ension of one who has commit
ed a crime, and by being thus
supplied with protectors, the ru
al communities will have almost
as much protection as the aver
ge- small town. It is very sel
om that we hear of certain
rimes being committed in places*
where there are plice, or near
where there is a magistrate; the
presence of these officers has a
deterrent effect, anti it is our
judgment that if we had more
officers scattered about in the
country,the effect would be a de
crease of all manner of crime.
We would not advocate the mul
tiplying of officers where the
same would drain the public
treasury, and in suggesting the
of c]othing,three township acces
sors with the power to issue war
rants, we would not have them
to get additional pay, this addi
tional power any patriotic citi
en would accept as a pretection
for his community and the con

A reading of Judge Hydrick's
reasons for refusing to grant a
new trial in the cases of "Camp
tire Bill," and George Spivens,
convicted of the murder of J. E.
Gaillard, does not impress the
reader as being a contident de
cision. The juryafter seeing the
witnesses and hearing the testi
money, rendered a verdict which
does not do Sumter county
credit. J. E. Gaillard was the
victim of an unprovoked murder,
no excuse whatever was shown
at the trial for taking his life,
that his killing was the result
of a devilish sirit of wantoness
there is no doubt, then his alleged
slayers were either guilty of
murder, or innocent, no room
for extenuating circumstances
upon which to base a recom
mendation for mercy,one or both
of the prisoners was guilty of
murder, and should suffer the
death penalty, but the fact of an
intelligent jury, the foreman a
man of prominence, returning a
compromise verdict, leaves room
to suppose the jury were not al
together satisfied with the proof
that the parties on trial were the
men guilty of the crime-there
was doubt, and it must have
been a strong doubt, or, under
the circumstances the jury would
not have spared the death pen
alty. That such a doubt existed
is affirmed in Judge Hydrick's
remarks in refusing to grant a
new trial. He intimated that
testimony was suppressed be
cause of fear; and that the whole
facts had not been brought out,
and yet, from his own remarks
witnesses may have been intimi
dated and the verdict was a com
promise to appease public senti
ment. He, after virtually inti
mating that the prisoners had
not had a fair and an impartial
trial, would not rise above the
public sentiment and give the
prisoners another chance.
We regard the verdict as un
jst to the dead as well as the
living, tuo the dead, because his
murderers should be hanged, the
living if their identity was not
established beyond a reasonable
oubt, they should not be made
to suffer, for 'tis better that
inety-nine guilty escape than
one innocent man be made to
suffer. We also regard the re
marks and action of Judge Hy
drick unjust. He heard the testi
mony, looked the witnesses in
the face, was in position to form
a judgment, and if in his opinion
the case was shrouded in mystery
and anything was withheld
hrough fear or favor as he in
imated, it was his duty as a
matter of even-banded justice to
grant a new trial.

THE LIBERTY CAP.
Its Signiftcance Dates Away Back to
Early Greek Times.
From very early times one bf the dis
tinguishing marks of a slave, both in
Greece and oriental countries general
ly, was the lack of gpy covering for
the head. Accordingly the cap came to
be considered the insignia of liberty,
and when slaves were given their free
dom they were presented with a cap as
an emblem of it. In Sparta the helots
wore a cap of dogskin, and this was
reckoned a badge of servitude, but
upon gaining their freedom this was
xeplaced by a cap of a difterent ma
terial, of another shape and ornament
ed with flowers. A similar custom
was observed In Rome, where the pres
entation of the pileus. or cap, was al
ways a part of the ceremony of manu
mitting a slave; hence arose the prov
erb, "Servos ad pileum vocare." Also
on medals the cap Is the symbol of lib
erty and is usually represented as be
ing held in the right hand by the point.
When a cap was exposed to the peo
ple's view on the top of a spear, as in
the case of the conspiracy against Cae
sar, It was intended as a public invi
tation to them to embrace the liberty
that was offered them. The Goddess
of Liberty on Mount Aventime was
represented as holding a cap in her
hand as a symbol of freedom. The
Jacobins wore a red cap during the
French revolution, and In England a
blue cap with a white border Is used
as a symbol of liberty. The custom
which prevails among university stu
dents of wearing a cap is said to have
had Its origin in a wish to signify that
the wearers had acquired full liberty
and were no longer 'subject to the rod
of their superiors.
The First of Them Was Established
In Paris In 1765.
For a. long time inns and eating
houses in Fraree were only Intended
for the benefit of traveling people, for
the people took their meals at home
and restaurants were unknown. The
first enterprise of the kind was found
ed in Paris in 1765. A citizen by the
name of Boulanger opened in the Rue
des Poulies an eating house where
soup, meat, fowl and eggs were serv
ed. A chronicler relates that meals
were served there on small, round
marble tables and everything was scru
Over the entry to this first eating
house the proprietor had hung a sg
upon which were the Latin words, ' +e
nite ad me omnes quae stomacho labo
ratis, et ego ritaurabo vos" (Come
unto me all ye whose stomachs need
attention, and I will restore them).
This is a parody on the well known
Biblical quotation, "Come unto me all
ye who labor and are heavy laden, and
I will give you rest," only in place of
labor and heavy laden he said, "whose
stomachs need attention." The word
"restaurabo," from the Latin "restau
rare" (restore or refresil), was the
main char'acteristic of the new estab
lishment and gave it its name. Bon

his enterprise proved emineny sue
cessful, but he was soon imiltat ', some

-us Child Wonder.
The French Academy of Sciences In
1729 examined the case of 'a French
lad only seven years old who, in all
respects save that of intelligence, was
the equal of a man of twenty. His re
markable physical development began
when he was two years old. At four
he could do the farm work of a boy of
fifteen or sixteen, and at seven he'was
a fully grown .man. Although his
physique was thus remarkably devel
oped, his intelligence was no greater
than that of children of the same age.
He died before he was twenty. As Is
usual, In such cases of premature de
velopment, his strength faded away,
and he became prematurely old before
other men would attain maturity.
The Pandects of Justinian.
The pandects of Justinian, the most
complete body of Roman laws ever
collected, were supposed to be lost, but
in 1137, when Amalfi was taken and
plundered'by the Pisans, a private sol
dier found a copy, which he sold to an
officer for a few pence. The value of
the discovery was soon apparent, and
the precious volume was taken to Pisa
and stored in the city library. When
Pisa was stormed by the Florentines
in 1415 the precious volume was cap
tured and taken to Florence, where It
was placed in the library of the Medici.

are sold, these being afterward folded
