LABOR VS CAPITAL.
The strike among the tele
grapliers which started in Cali
fornia has spread all over the
country, and the wheels of con
merce is threatened with obstruc
tion. The government should
devise some means to settle the
differences between capital and
labor without the country at
large being made to suffer. The
present strike, unless one side or
the other gives in will become
more serious every day, and
maiv who do business by wire
will be greatly damaged.
The battle between labor and
capital promises to be a long
siege,it is the greatest strike thc
country has ever known. Active
steps are being taken to concen
trate the monies of labor into q
fund to fight the millions of the
corporations. A number of labor
organizations have signified thei
intention to stand by the tele
graphers, and the probability i

Fitzpatrick, the national heads
of organized labor will pledge

in this dispatch it is specially
mentioned that Prager is a Jew.
Just why the culprit's religion
should be dragged in we cannot
understand. If Prager was a
Methodist, Presbyterian, Bap

Catholic, the probability is there
would have been no allusion tc
his faith. The allusion to faith,
not so intended, however, is
really a compliment to the
Jewish race, because, the court:
are so seldom called upon tc
punish Jews for offending the
moral or statutory laws, thai
when a case does occur it must
be made especially prominent.
There are no people on eartli

Gov. Ansel, who is never extravagant
in the use of language, said a few days
ago that he considers Jno. S. Wilson
one of the purest, truest and highest

by his having no opposition for so
many years in his career as solicitor.
The following sketch of Judge Wil

John Snowden Wilson comes from
that good old Scotch-Irish stock,which
has furnished South Carolina with so
many of her most honored sons and
stamped on her civilization so deep an
impress. He was born on a farm,
forced by the circumstances of war in
early life to work for others more help
less than himself and learning by self
denial and yirtue to set a true estimate
on the things of the world.
Mr. Wilson comes from stock which
made old Williamsburg county and res
cued the soil of the State .from the in
vading hosts of England. His great
rnndfather Wilson and on his mother's
side his great-grandmother Paisley
were both in the Revolutionaryv war
and did good service for their country.
His grandfather, Col. David Wilson of
Williamsburg county, represented that
county for several years inrthe State
senate, and his mother's father. Sam
uel J. Snomden, both left their impress
on that coinmunity so well known by
th-e older generation of people in that
section of, the State as a center of cul
tuz'e and refinement, Indiantown.
'%t was and is an old-fashioned settle
ment on the border lin e betweenGeorge
town and Williamsburg counties noted
for high tone and culture, the educa
tion of its people and the beauty and
refinement of its women. It was in
such surroundings that young John
Wilson was born and from which he
drew his lirst ideas of life, where the
bed rock was laid in his character.
He was born October 21, 1856, which
makes U.m just 51 years and a few
months old. His father wvas Samuel
Itley Wilson, a wvell known and influ
ential citizen of that community. a far
mer and a gentleman of education and
culture. He was a graduate of David
son college, completing his course at the
age of 19...
At the outbreak of the war he joined
the Tenth regiment, which was forme~d
in that section of the State, leaving his
young wife and children,to fight for his
country. He wvas subsequently at
tached'to Tucker's cavalry and other
- His mother was Mary J. Snowden,
who, with her husband, as boy and
irl, attended the schools in Indian
own; afterwards she was educated at
Bradford Springs and an institution in
Charleston at that time very highly
esteemed as a school for young ladies.
Samuel Itley Wilson died in the fall
of 1876, leaving his widow with five
orphan children, the eldest of whom
was the subject of this sketch, then 11
years old, with the country in wreck
and the conditions of life almost intol
erable. In spite of this discouraging
condition the little family bravely
faced life and battled wvell and success
fully against the odds that threatened
to ~overwhelm them. Schooling wvas
dilicult in those days, but it was possi
ble to get it if the right determination
existed, and it did exist in the case of
this family. The children were given
advantages of all that the country
afforded and they used them wvell. John
S. WVilson, after training in the Indian
town academy, attended school in Man
ning, where he lived with a relative,
the late B. Pressley Barron, Esq., the
school beirng a well known institution
under the management of John With
erspoon Ervin, one of the real masters
of the art of teaching the boys; later
he attended the academy of Rev. Rlobt.
Lathan, afterwards D. D., and head of
Erskine college. Although well pre
pared for college the young man, then
wvithin a few years of his majority, wvas
obliged to forego his ambition and cut
short his education and return to the
farm to work, where he remainded one
Of the brothers and sisters of Mr.
Wilson, all are living, except one, Mrs.
Munnerlvn. The other sisters are Miss
Annie anid Mrs. Dinkins, all of that
Indiantowvn section of Williamsburg,
and the brother, David Itley Wilson,
now a wvell known and infuential
farmer and business man at the old
home place, where they were all born
and raised. Mrs. Wilson was subse
quently married to John WV. DuRant
and by this marriage there were five
children, all well known in that section
of country and all most highly esteem
ed for their virtues and public spirit.
John S. Wilson was one of the boys
who wore the red shirts in the memo
rable Hampton campaign of 1876 and
187 and helped as best he could to
work out the redemption of the State.
Returning to Manning after his ex
p~erience of a year on the farm he read
law with his kinsman, B. Pressley Bar
ron, Esq., and was admitted to the bar
by examination before the supreme
court in 1880 and began the practice of
his profession at Manning, forming a
partnership with Joseph F. Rhame of
that bar and later with Col. B. Press
cy Barron, Esq. Hie was later ap~point
ed trial justice at Manning and served
several years with credit to himself and
satisfaction to the community. He
resigned and p)racticed law alone until
1888, when he became a candidate and
a successful one for solicitor. He has
never had opposition in that office anai
has been reelected each time, though
twice he was chosen when factional
politics raged very fiercely in the State
cause they bowed not the knee to the
idol of the hour. In the case of Solici
tor Wilson, however, though known to
be a Conservative in politics, he en
joyed the confidence of the people to
such an extent that both sides endorsed
him and he was again and again
returned to the place lie had fiiled wirli
SO mu11ch ability.
As solicitor Mr. Wilson has imet in
the forum the best lawyers and tie
hardest fighters in the ,tate and he
has always acquitte(l himself with dis
tintion. I-e has won in many cases
celebrated in the annals of the court.
notable among which may be mention
ed the Brownfield appeal from George
town, whih was an att-ack before the
supreme court of the United States on
our jury laws, the plea being made
that they violatad the constitution in
that they discriminated in effect
against negroes on the juries. This
case Mr. Wilson won after a most
dogged fight. In civil work he has
had many notable cases, representing
some of the l-rgest industries and most
prominent men in eastern Carolina and
he has appeared from time to time be
fore the supreme court in hard legal
Mr. Wilson for ten years, up to last
summer, had been in partnership with
Charlton DuRant at Manning under
the firm name of Wilson & DuRant.
As solicitor Mr. Wilson was careful
aud painstaking. He sought the truth
and served the state. It has never been
considered that his first object was to
convict, and he never overreached. He
was one of the fairest fighters that
ever put lance in rest in a legal battle.
He was painstaking in his duty, care
ful and accurate, quick to grasp the
significance of the smallest detail and
prompt to use it. It would have to be
a mighty well practiced liar who could
lie under John Wilson's searching eye.
Mr. Wilson was married in early
life to Miss Elizabeth Ingram. daugh
ter of Dr. John I. Ingram, of Claren
don, who has been a helpmeet indeed
in the journey through life. a charm
ing woman of highest character, most
highly esteemed in the community in
which she lives. To this union have
been born eight children, six girls and
two boys. The eldest. a graduate of the

As a man, John Wilson possesses
peculiar magnetism He is regarded
by those who know him best as being
of pure gold, the soul of honor, a fit
scion of that sturdy Scotch-Irish stock
which set truth and honor and integ
rity above all else in the world. He has
never made mach money, he never
seemed to be working for the particu
lar personal interest of John S. Wilson:
one never associated him with money
making, but one could not disassociate
him from patriotism and justica and
squa.re dealing. His friends love him
because he has a wealth of kindly feel

a breadth and depth of intellect and
they trust him because he has never

long ago,and upon his arrival
found his new field to afford al
most all that could be wished for,
with one exception,this exception
being old Bill Johnson. Old B3ill
was very much addicted to look

red, and the new minister at once
announced his intention to bring
him to see the error of his ways.
"Wall, of course~we knows
you mean right, parson," one of
the elders said slowly,stroking
his white beard, "but it would
be a mighty bad thing for the
town if old Bill was to quit drink
