SATURDAY, NOV. 13, 1875. j
It scorns difficult for our people in
this section to get rid of thc .sharpers.
It has boon clearly demonstrated that
wc have enough bad men of our own j
raising in South Carolina, so that we \
do not need to import them from
'other sections of thc country, who
aro worse than our home production.
But they will como as long as they
can make it pay to impose them
selves upon thc people. Many of
the rogues come South to winter, who
have other chosen resorts during thc
summer. We arc informed on thc
best of authority, that a set of gamb
lers traveling upon the Noithcastern
and Savannah railroads during the
last winter, were known on these
routes to have won in gambling and
taken from our unsuspecting citizens
and others, between thirty and ?u ty
thousand-dblluts,~7ind they arc again
ajrwork on these' routes. ' So* very
groat was thc extent io which this
was carried las*, year hat tba- rail
road companies had notices put up in
the cars warning thc passengers not
to accept offers to play at canis. Bill
* all thc measures they could usc tlid
not put a final slop to this game ol
thc sharpers. They go in gangs, and
phey and win money from each other
and by that means draws others into
it, ami those who venture aro as sure,
to be caught as thc silly liy who goes
into the pretty parlor of the spider.
These traveling scourges arc well
trained in their business, anti know
how to win money from tito unsus
pecting. Let thc public he on their
guard against them, ami starve ?hem
out. It is said these same gamblers
deal in counterfeit money. IL is rc
ported that at some of thc recent cir
cus exhibitions in our Stale, parties
were selling counterfeit money for ten
cents on thc dollar. Thc law should
bc rigidly enforced against till such
pests in thc community. They
should learn at leasl, that thc South
is no place for them. Let them bc
put where they will bc obliged to
carn'an honest living.
alu. Kimon : - Notwithstanding
the prejudice of our people against
cvcylhing Northern, they cannot but
commend your clTorls in behalf of
honesty in officials. Hut our people
must bo aware that they arc, in a
measure, responsible for all Hu: fraud,
corruption, dishonest}', poverty that
has oppressed us for thc last six
years. Thc "masterly inactivity,"
and stand-aloof-policy, so much ad
vocated just previous to thc constitu
tional convention of 1808, sowed Lin:
seed, the bitlov fruits of which we
have been reaping ever since. Such
was the prejudice, (strengthened by
such advice as this) that but few hon
orable or honest men dared, in thc
face of public opinion, lo become one
of the many required in our legisla
tive halls. As* a const quenco the
majority of thc State and county ?bi
ces wc tc lilied hy dishonest and cor-'
nipt men, who sought them foi- sclf
agraiidiseineut, and who used as a
weapon against us, this very preju
dice and stand-oll'-policy Lo obtain
thc stiliVagcs of UH: blacks.
'Vigilance slept. We wore "mas
terly inactive." lt was suicidal ; but
let us hope that our people will profit
by the lesson.
Brought suddenly from slavery,
*! i . i i
poverty, ignorance, lo liberty, what
should wc have expected of thc ne
gro? Tiltil bc should know and con
ti hu hi insult* to thal "middle point be
tween liic two extremes of licentious
