THE NEW YORK World thinks that
Bayard and hard money can easily
beat Grant In 1880.
The election cases are not resulting
in a manner calculated to convince
Mr. Hayes that he was not a little bit
too hasty in his message, or to give
much comfort to demagogues of the
Blaine stamp. Thus far there have
been several acquittals, some mistrials
and a number of contlnuaices. Colo
nel Mackey seems in his expedition
after wool to be In danger of coming
back shorn. The Williamsburg,
Clarendon and Richland cases have
ended in smoke, and the Sumter case
has merely developed Sam Lee's
powers for false swearing. He is
contradicted at every point, and even
himself modifies his charges. He has
made out a good case of perjury,
which will not be lost by the State.
With decent juries the Federal trials
are absurd farces, owing to the utter
want of reliable testimony in behalf
of the prosecution. As a last resort,
it is reported, tYhe jurors at the next
court will be compelled to take the
iron-clad oath, the hope being that in
this way the juries can be packed
with renegades and hacks. Congress
should Inmediately take steps to re
peal the provision requiring this oath.
Five Dollars a Day for Thirty Days.
The House has made a good coin
promise by passing a bill allowing
members five dollars a day for not
more than thirty days. The reaction
from the exorbitant rates of pi.evious
sessions led many to demand that the
pay should be fixed at three dollars a
day. But several members showed
that this reduction would practically
prevent poor men from serving in' the
Legislature, as incidental expenses are
no inconsiderable matter, and three
dollars will not cover them. It is
much better to give a good. per liem
and to limit the length of scesion. The
laborer Is Worthy of his hire, but he
must not be too long finishing his job.
Under the proposed 1411, the pay of the
members will be only about twenty
five thousand dollars, against several
hundred thousand In the palmy days
of Radicalism. Besides the consid
eration of-pxpense a short session will
be of service in preventing useless
legislation.- Only measures of general
Interest will receive attention. Again,
many of our best citizens are willing
to spend a month in Columbia, but
they willl refuse to serve If required to
absent themselves from business all
winter and spring.
As had been expected, the Legisla-.
ture on Tuesday elected Governor
Hampton to the UTnited States Senate.
The unanimity of the vote, taken in
connection with the circumstance
that at the same moment the Governor
was suff'eritig beneath the knife of the
. surgeon, a1fd7his life was trembling
in the balah6e, 'could not fail to pro
duce a prbNutid sensatioti. Never
before had~ it beene more clearly
demonstrated'how near a place the
Governor holds to the hearts of the
people, and how in his efforts are
centred the hopes of thQusands.
Governor Hampton's career is a
seemring anachronism. -The events
connected with it are not to be found
elsewhere in the humdrum practical
life of the' nineteenth century. Its
counterparts must be sought In those
days In which knights and trouba
dears abounded, and all Christendom
was swayed by sentiment. If the
Crusades were the poetry of wvar,
no less has HamplIton's history beena
the poetry of politics. South Carolina
has ever played a peoullar part in the
government. The old spirit of chiv
alry, which impelled men to risk
rep)utatlon, property and life itself for
an idea, and to scorn to consider ex
pediency when honor was at stake,
still survived in the Palmetto State,
and imparted distinguishing charac
teristics to the p)eople and to their
representatives. Here, then, wore
the theatre and the man. Governor
HIamp)ton came of historie ancestry.
Before the wvar he distinguished him
self in the arts of peace. During that
struggle he achieved the highest
honors as a soldier. But a nobler
imture was in store. In the darkest
period of our State's istory ho .was
called to put himself at the head of a
forlorn hope, i a contest against
overwhelming numbers, perfect or
ganIzation hWd the undisguised assist
ance of th6deaal government. The
campaign of 1878 was a poem, need
ing only a Homer to perpetuate it in
verse, or minutaqls- to ombalm It In
song. nye personal m- .l~
Governor 1 1ampton organlized a part y
out of discordant eleinets, revived
hope in the hopeless, intlained on
thuslasn to its highest point, and
after an unprecedented campaign of
sixty days, on which the heavens
.ever frowned, won a peaceful,
bloodless victory at the polls. Tlis
was not all. In securing the fruits
of victory lie evinced a degree of
wisdom and statesmanship that be
wildered even his warmest adioirers,
and won for himself and his State the
admiration of the North. which up to
that point had beei bitterly hostile.
In those days South Carolina was one
vast asyluim of emotional insanity,
and Hampton its keeper. One ints
take would have ruined till. But he
made none. Skillfully and sirely he
solved the problemll an(f restoredi t chaos
to perfect order. Two years li ter lie
is re-elected Governor without tin
opposing voice. Yet, inl his imloikent
of triumph, a dreadful accident hefiils
him, and changes the plaidits of the
people into exclamations of grief.
And now while medical skill is taxed
to the utmost In aiding the forces of'
life against the assaults of death, the
summons is brought to his bedside
that the State calls on hin to don his
armor in her def'eice in a new and
larger arena. Well may it be said
that Governor, now Senator, iI amptonl
is the central figure of a grand epic
poem, having its lights and shatdes so
strongly marked as to furnish abuid
ant materials for sonie inspired soil of
Song. And here let us hope that the
thread may not bo snapped preia
turely, but that all the events..of' the
past may merely lead to some granider
culmination in the fIulture, by which
the names of Hanpton and South
Carolina may be forever linked in
