First the ancient retort "I will con"

epithet "dirty puppy" Is more than i

EDITOR PRO TEM.
Censuring the JYudge.
The grand Jury undier our system
of government is a very important
Institution. It has especially a general
supervisory control over the affairs of
the country and should certainly not
be criticised for a fearless discharge
of duty. But when this body, which
should always be composed of men of
discriminating judgment, has so far
forgotten Its legitimate office as to in.
Rult the official head of the Court
which it has been empannelled to
servo, then it should be reprImanded,
Now if the Edgefleid grand Jury
had directed its rebuke solely at the
Solicitors of that circuit for failing to
.proseeute their defaulting officials, it
would have been all very well'and
proper. But when it presumed to
chargr for this neglect that all of the
Judges who have lately presided at
that Court have been recreant to their
oaths of office, it was simply induig.
lng impudent prattle.
A circuit Judge 1s not a publio pros.
ecutor. ils office is simply to hold
the scales of Justice evenly. When
he has called the attention of the
Solicitor to the final preseutment oi
the grand Jury and directed him to
carry otit its suggestions as far as
practicable, he has done his whole
duty. If anything is then neglected
the Solicitor alone Is responsible. It
Is not the business of the Judge to
watch after him to see that he does
this, that and the other.
Before a grand Jury assumes the
extraordinary function 6f charging
the Judge with violating his oath of
office it should kno# whereof it

Wide open question. So far as we
can understand, from his remarks,
the presentment of Be p Tillman's
agricultural college as a public nut
sance by the Charleston grand jury is
the proper thing to look for.
(The Barntwell People.)
So far nrom capturing Barnwell
Capt. Tillmen lost ground that It will
be hard , for him to recover. Many
farmers In sympathy with the Im
provement of their occupation will
not touch a movement engineered by
such methods. That Is a fact and not
a more editorial opinion. Again it
will be seen from the proceedings of
the convention that It has pledged
itself to nothing further than the at
tendance -of Its delegates upon the
State convention. It has not ket in
line with the other county convenions
that have "resolved" in favor of a
separate agricultural and mechanical
college. It did not even adopt a con
stitution and by-laws, but postponed
that work until a more convenient
season. And to show that there is no
epidemic of exthusiasm in favor of the
establishment of such an Institution,
we have only to say that our repuest,
published weeks ago that such of our
readers as fivored its creation would
give posial card expression of their
leanings, has not elicited a single
response. It is still an open question
with them and that meeting was no
revival on that issue. The people of
Barnwell will go slowly, but surely
and when they are sure they are right
they will go ahead and not before.
