RIGHT REV. J. B. P. Wilmer, Epis.
copal bishop of Loulsana, died sud
denly last week. He was highly
esteemed and greatly beloved.
JuGE BRYAN is taking a Manly
stand in defence of the constitution
and of the rights of parties to a fair
and impartial trial.
THz WHOLE State has cause for con
gratulation in the unanimous election
of Senator T. B. Fraser, of Sumter,
to succ6ed the late Hon. A. J. Shaw
as judge of the third circuit. Judge
Fraser was born In 1825, graduated in
1815 and has been practising law
since 1847. Ie served in the House
from 1858 to 1865, and was elected
State Senator last year. Judge Fraser
is as clear as a bell and is the soul of
honor, and he will worthily bear the
BLAINE'S RESOLUTION to Investigate
the conduct of the recent elections
will, it is said, be accepted by the
Democrats with the condition to make
the investigation ge -eral. The Now
York Herald intimates that Blaie
has bung!ed a little, as the investiga
tions will include the conduct of
Federal Supervisor Davenport, of
New York, who arrested hundreds of
Democrats on election day and fright
ened thousands away from the polls
on the charge that their naturalization
papers were technically defective.
A propos of this, one of Davenport's
victims has just been released by the
Federal Court, the judge declaring
that the man ought never to have been
arrested. Thus are the Radical three
black crows rapidly dwindling into
On Wednesday, Chief Justice Wil
lard, with the president and clerk of
the Senate, speaker and clerk of the
House, and the joint committee of the
two bodies, repaired to Governor
Hampton's residence in the suburbs of,
Columbia, and at the invalid bedside
administered the oaths of office to
Governor Iamptoin and Lieutenant
Governer Simpson. It was anl im
pressive ceremony. The Governor
appeared In good spirits, and replied
to the committees in the following
Gentlemen of the Conmittees: I beg
you to represent to the General As
sembly my deep sense of the kindness
and honor they have done me in scnd
ing these committees of condolence,
and to assure them that I applreciate
this action on their part most grate
fully. I beg that you will also say
that a large part ot' the regret I ex
perience at the accidcnt wvhich has
confined ime arises from tho fact that it
omens at a time 7when it dep)rives me
-of the opportunity of taking counsel
with the GnrlAssembly on the
gra issues impending, anid in .en
deavorlngt to assume my share of the
resp)onsib)ility. I thank you, gentle
mn, for the kind and feeling manner
which in you hav'e discharged the duty
with which you were entrusted.
Governor Hampton has issued a
second p)roclanmation entrusting thme
.State into Governor Simpson's hands,
and the latter is again acting gover
Although Governor Hampton is
said to be convalescing he has at times
been In a very critical condlitioni,
more so, p)erhmaps, than the outside
,rorld has been aware of. It is be
lieved now that lie will be spared for
many more years of usefulness. The
Legislature will scnd him to the
United States Seniate, and there, his
wisdom and moderation will be of
great service to his State anid to the*
law and order party throughout the
E. W. M. Mackey is having a rough
time with his perjured witnesses and
trumpied up eases in the Federal
Court.. IHe first brought up the
Williamsburg cases-those alleged
outrages that curdled the .National
Repuzblican's heart about election
time-and although every effort was
made to prove the charges, the wit
nesses blundered so egregiously, or
lied so palpably, or honestly confessed'
that they knew so little, that the
grand jury promptly found "no bill,"
thus disposing of Swalls' slanders.
This was by no meanms palatable bo the
martyrized Mackey, so he had the
grand jury discharged, and resorted,
to the device of trial by information
Judge Bryan's decision that parties
can be tried only on Indictment by a
grand jury beig overruled by Bond.
But Mackey was here more unibrtu
nate than before. Three gentlemen
of Clarendon were tried on the chamge
of interfering with . sjupgryAgor.
Upon the' testimony offereod by; the
} prosecution the falsity of* thi charge
wa.so cnierl shown th.t Jud.e
Bond himself directed the jury.to find
Pa Verdict of "not guilty." Thus is
the bottom falling out of the prosecu
More than this, the United States
Commissioners are dropping prosecu
tions in order to save the prosecuting
witnesses from conviction of perjury.
Their stories have been so easily dis
proved that the penitentiary is fairly
yawning for them. Their only salva
tion lies In having all proceedings
dropped. The Radicals are not
making as much capital out of' the
outrige business as they txpected.
And Mackey, especially, is unhappy.
Considerable excitement was
aroused at a performance last Sun
day evening in the Grand Opera
House, Milwaukee, by the 'extraor
dinary behavior of one of the prin
cipal.inembers of the company. The
piece was Miss Lina Tetterhorn's
Bnsational drama, "Tina, the Milk
Vender," which has been rendered
with bone success in English. This
time it was given in its original
German. In the principal scene a
large dog is introduced, hauling
the milk-wagon of "Hartina," the
heroine of the play. This dog un,
derstands English thoroughly, but,
having had only the advantage of a
single rehearsal in German, Le
became somewhat mixed a,i to his
business--not understanding the
language and of course m.istaking
his cue. When the comedian comes
on and says."Hartina, are you here?"
it is the dog's cue to stand still
until Hartina and her lover em
brace and then sing a duet. Then
ho follows Hartina around the stage
with the milk-cart, and so on.
On this occasion, when the words
"Hartina, bist du lier ?" were ut
tered the dog made a jump for the
comedian, who took freight and
ran off the stage. The dog followed
barking furiously, and scatteiing
the milk-pails all over the stage.
Hartina screamed and took refuge
among the opposite wings. Tho
dog presently reappeared, and spy
ing the prompter seated in his half
moon in front of the footlights, he
m-ide a plun)ge for him. The promp
ter dropped his book and dived
through the trap,door.. The dog,
now thoroughly aroused, went after
him, followed by the milk-wagon
,ind what was left of the cans.
Amid the yells of the audience an
effort was made to rescue the un
happy and aifrighted proipter.
Seizing the tailboard of the eart,
some of,tho people on the stage gave
a strong pull and a pull altogether,
when up came the wagon, and then
the clog and finally the prompter
the latter in a helpless condition
with the fangs of the infuriated
inimal firmly fastened to that part
of his garment which was the last
to disappear from sight. A m)uzzle
was procured and( the (log was led
fromn the stage, yelping at the
prompter and looking daggers in
bhe direction of the coimmedian.
3rd1er was eventually restored and
the piece proceeded,-Un/ticago T'ri
