ARE WE COWARDS? NIT.
Tbe following editorial squib up
peared in The State of Sept. 10:
"A few weeks ago the governor received
a request from the sheriff of
Pickeus county for one or two companies
of militia to prevent negroes
from rescuing one of their race who
was about to bo hanged. It was reported
that negroes were"orgauizing."
The governor denied the request, cr
tiering the shoritr to use bis powers in
drafting a posse. Of course tliore was
no organization or danger. To tbe
white man of the coast, where the negroes*
are as ten to one, and never
feared, tbe idea of fenring them in the
Piedmont, where the majority is reversed,
is inexplicable. Yet pome panicky
person sets going somo "organization"
yarn every month or two.
There is probably as much foundation
for the existence of "Before Day"
clubs in Georgia and Florida as there
was for tbe uprising in Pickens. All
xne otaio neea uavo no mars aooui
the courage of I'iokens county's sher*
ilY or its citizens. It is truo that
thero were rumors of liberation of the
negro rourdoror, Henry Jones. It is
equally true that such threats had no
more dread among Piftkens county
citizens than "the whito man on the
coast, where the negroes are ivh ten
to one, and never feared." Tho reason
for the sheriff's call upon the
crovernorer for a comoanv of State
rnalitia was simply this; Tho sheriff
was laboring under tlie impression
that the State malitia exists for tho
purpose of quelling just such distur
bances as "mi(.ht have" arisen, but
fortunately did not. He wua aware
of course that he Oould deputize every
man in the county if neods be, but
thought that the State is taxed to
keep up the State militia, which ex
iBtB for preHorving peace within tho
State, nn<l that a company of militia
wan not far away and Hhould ho culled
into requiwition simply as a roattor of
It won ftnlliorntively roportod here
at tho time that a company of State
militia in Greenvlllo remained in
thoir armory a mnjor portion of the
night ready to come to Pickonn at n
iiii/iiiuut n iiutir-u.
If thoy wore not acting under the
instructions of tho governor, the State
will please keep mum and not roport
the matter to the governor and have
the Greenville laddies court martialed.
They meant w?ll and felt that
in holding themsolvex in readiness to
quell a possible disturbance, they
wore discharging their duties as soldiers
to the State.
No, the fact that the sheriff of
Pickens county called on the governor
for a company of State militia in
no indication that the people of this
county are cowards.
? Tho fact that tho Greorivillo company
remained in their armony subject
to onW is a clear indication that
they knew their duty aB soldiers to
