The Tribune Almanac makes the
next House of Representatives to
con t 6f 142 Republicans and 148
Dejuocrats, with three members to
Iead what the Grand Jury
thought of the charges of intimida
tion brought by Warren R. Marshall
against the citizens of Ridgeway.
Their presentment was made after
the fullest investigation. Leading
members of both races and parties
Warren R. Marshall testified be
fore the Senate Committee in Co
lumbia that his wife died from
fright in consequence of Democratic
terrorism. The testimony of sher
physician is that she died from
pneumonia. No terrorism existed.
Mrs. Marshall was a most estimable
lady, and in her last illness received
the tenderest care from the families
of the very gentlemen whom her
husband charges with terrorism.
If her death was from other than a
physical cause it was due to the
political course he pursued and not
to "terrorism." We would not
allude to domestic griefs but for
the fact that Mr. Marshall has made
The State Ticket.
Mr. Wilkes who was appointed
referee in the matter of the election
of State officers has presented a
voluminous report, showing a large
number of technical irregularities in
different portions of the State.
These consist chiefly of clerical
errors by te clerks of the boards
such as accrediting votes to Conner
and Elliott respectively as Comp
troller-General when they were
voted for as Attorney-General. The
deduction of these errors leaves the
Pllowing result* Hayne 91,634,

91,581 ; Kennedy 91,606, Moise
91,550; Tolbert 91,641, Thompson
91,550. By this, Sims, Moise and
Thompson are defeated. But 500
votes were cast for J. B. Tolbert
instead of J. R. Tolbert, and if these
be deducted Mr. Thompson wins.
Two boxes were opened at Abbe
ville C. H., when the law author

second elects the entire Democratic
The Publia Schools.
The County Board of Examiners
have ordered all public schools in
the county to close until further
notice. This step was deemed ne
cessary by them in consequence of
the want of funds. The Chamber..
lain alleged tax bill is fraudulent,
and will not be recognized. The
Constitutional government owing to
the revolutionary conduct of the
Senate has made no tax levy. The
ten per cent. contribution does not
apply to schools. No money will
therefore be collected for education
al purposes until the Constitutional
Legislature meets and passes a regu
lar tax bill. The Board of Exami
ners deemed it unwise, as well as
uinauthorized by law, to continue
the schools and thus to run the
county in debt by the issuance of
teacher,' certificates which cannot
be paid. -The Board recognized its
grave -responsibility. The education
of ghildren is of great importance.
But it is still more necessary not to
clog the working of the system in
the future by the contracting of new
debts just as the old liabilities have
belen biely settled up.
It It errondous to suppose that
ths Sclhool Gomnmissioner -receives a
* salay..of a thousan d dollars. The
amendedslaw allows him compensa..

died dollars a' year. But hie has

and to the perfection of the system.
Such liberality is praiseworthy.
Mr. Richardson : in earnest, and,
if the schools receive financial sup
port, he will cause great improve
ment in them.
Honor to Whom Honor is Due.
A number of the State papers are
engaged in a controversy, each claim
ing the credit of having inaugurated
the "straight-out policy." The as
sertion made by . the Columbia
legister that it, in conjunction with
several weekly papers, advocated the
measure a long time before the
birth of the Charleston Journal of
Commerce is perfectly correct, and
it appears to us that the attacks
upon the Register by these weekly
journals arose out of a careless
reading of its articles. No one
wishes to withhold from these
papers the credit to which they are
But while this movement was one
springing up spontaneously from
the people, which, thouglh at first
directed by a few leaders, soon
gathered such impetus as to engulf
them, if the real credit rests with
any one for upholding the banner
of the National Democracy through
all the changes and compromises in
this State, it is due to Edward F.
Stokes of Greenvillo. During all
the time that the Liberal Republi
can idea was sweeping over the
country and burying the Democratic
party, Mr. Stokes refused to bow
the knee to the political Baal. Re
sponding to the call of Charles
O'Connor, he traversed the entire
State in a carriage, with a flag, a
drum and a Bible, and on the street
corners, and at cross roads, and
before every gathering of people,
proclaimed the sound old straight
out doctrines of the Democracy.
In Fairfield, Willis Goode, a colored
Democrat, was one of Mr. Stokes'
staunch adherents, and while all his
follow-citiznus were supporting
either Grant or Greeley he deposit
ed his ballot for Charles O'Connor.
The .Register, Intelligencer, and
Advertiser returned to the straight
out faith some time after. Edward F.
Stokes and Willis Goode, with a few
other O'Connor Democrats in the
State, can alone claim an unswerving
allegiance to the principles of
This movement was an uprising
of the people, and the eleventh
hour laborers in the vineyard
wvorked as faithfully and will receive
their penny as surely as those who
began at first.
No influence in the campaign was
felt more than that wielded by the
News and Courier. Although op
posed at first to the straight out
movement, it promptly obeyed the
will of the majority, and its march
from the seventeenth of August last
was one contitiued charge. Blow
after blow fell heavily upon the de
moralized ranks of Radicalism. The
services it rendered were invaluable.
Other papers also worked earnestly,
just as prominent citizens whose
judgment opposed the movement
were afterwards its most trusted
supporters. All will share the
honor of the victory alike ; those
who first began the cry, and those
who rendered yeomen service in
prosecuting the work to conipletion
There will be five eclipses in 1877,

February 27th, visible in the United
States ; a partial eclipse of the sun
on March 15, visible in Western

August 8, visible in Alaska, Kam

a total eclipse of the moon on
August 23, partly visible in the
Eastern and Southern States, and a
