NORTE CAROLINA is interested already -
in Vance's successor. ti

WE nominate B. R. Tillman to Suc c
ceed Gen. Vance in North Carolina. 'i
GEN. WADE MAMrON has issued a
call for the organization of National
Democratic League Clubs.
MADALINE ought to keep out the s
newspapers now. We are glad that s
she is not going on the stage, and we
hope she will also decide not to write
up the trial.
WADE IIAMPT)N was in Columbia in d
'76 when the people were wild with W
excitement and he counseled for peace. A
He was in Columbia th3 night of the
Darlington tragedy and he counseled t
for neace. 1
THE more reasonable and candid v
followers of Governor Tillman admit
that McLendon was largely responsible t(
for the Darlington tragedy. The t]
coroner's verdict says so, and a fair t<
and honest jury free from all preju- l<
dice will say so.
THE Bishop of Chester, England,
has written to Governor Tillman for
an ofcial report, or rather an authen- d
tic account of the riot at Dat lington. n
We hope he will send him the account
of Rev. Mr. Stout, of the Baptist ~
Church at Darlington, who was an i
eye-witness and who helped to protect
BRtECKENRI)GE has resumed his seat s
tialt'o a public -speaker-respect. No A
matter what msay be the powers of a n
man, he cannot gain the attention of e
an audience and enlist their interest
unless his audience have respect for a
him. Possibly some other members of
Congress are no0 better than he, edil d
they have not been exposed. 0
IF what the newspapers iu Georgia i
say can be taken with any weight, o
General Evans will be the nrext Goy- *1
ernor of that State. We have read a
few of the speeches, and we are better w
pleased with General Evans than with
Colone. Atkinson. The latter devotes ~
too much time in prsising himself h
His whole effort sems to be to con- ni
vince the voters that he mnade a use ful
member of the Legislature. He cer
tainly is not deficient in arrogance. S

IT is said that the House of Rep: e- si
sentatives have a rule providing for ~
the fining of Congressmen not attend- is
ing its proceeding. It is hoped that 01
the rule will now be rigidly enforced. pt
If the Senate has not such a rule, it ~
ought to adopt one and execute it. ca
It would be interesting to know how b<
often Senator Irby would have been th
fined had such a rule been enforced. gI
We doubt whether his salary would ar
~ have paid his board bill in Washington.

THIE DARLDJTON PASTOR.
ke Darl'ng-ton Baptist Minister Tc1s
the Story of the Riot.
Dear Courier: There has been an
undance- a deplorable excess -of
!ws from our aillicted community in
e secular papers of the last week,
it the brotherhood may very nat.
-ally be desirous of hearing some
ing from one who occupies my po
in your judicious editorial of thi'
eek you touch the cause of our ca
mity. It was not the law. but the
ethod and the men employed in the
Iministration of the law, that ex
ted the animosity of our people; and
seems clear that the criminal folly
id passion of.an officer to be dan
rously lacking in self-control, struck
e spark that caused the conflagration
re. Our people had recently been
irred to great indignation by the
antom search of an old lady's trunk.
his was utterly without excuse, and
ne in a spirit of bravado. They
spected when an increase of the con
abulary force was made without any
tanifest necessity, that some usual
rocedures were intended, and the
Lere rumor that it was the intentioi
E the constables to search private
uses was enough to put the endur
ace of anexcited community on se
,re tension. Prudent counsels held
jr people back from interference.
And these selected officers of a most
ifficult and delicate service, allowed
emselves to be drawn into a per
>nal quarrel between two youths,
st at their leaving town. The en
re truth of the said affair will nevei
e known, but responsibility for pre.
pitating the fatal affray cannot be
fted from the man who, with bittel
irses and vile epithets, called oul
Let 'er roll," and fired.
The sequel-a whole commuunity
Laddened over the death of two citi.
-us-one of them one of the most
olar young mnei in it, -and pur
ing the fleeing murderers,-tha
quel, might have been written be
re the fatal shot. It was sure to
One of the constables left on the
round was not dead, really he was
At seriously hurt, but lay feigning
eath when I arrived on the scene. It
as suspected that he was not dead.
[en, sobbing with grief over the forim
E their friend, Frank Norient, were
ireatening to shoot this mnan who
ied him. Norment's father and
:hers restrained then with diflieulty,
d the man was removed from the
iew of the crowd.
Such was the bitter feeling of mnany
>wards this man that at the requelt
the sherift I rode with him undor
ie protection of a guard of soldiers
i the jail. And after he was safely
dged in jail, I exerted myself per
mnally along with some others to pre
nt the lynching that seemed to Le
amineut, taking a message to men
tost determinea upon tho horrible
eed from their murdered friend's
other and wife, begging them to do
o violence to him.
And now I submit, that when after
nusual exertions of this sort had
een hardly enough to prevent the
-nching of McClendon, the taunt,
why didn't they lynch the man who
mey claim originated the trouble and
h'om they had in their power"
>unds passing strange.
u~i-eul s if~ ossa lig
nd it has ever since continued to be
>rmfally quiet, but it is impossible to
:press or adequately suggest the
ep, burning inclignation of our peo
.e, that this community has been
bjeted to such an experience of
imulation, misrepresemnat ion, mnur
r and official wrath. The coming
troops, welcomed by us; their comn
ander's declarations as to the lack
necessity here for there presence;
e verdict of coroner's jury, and that
the military cou.ncil, bupporting
ir contention that the catastrophe
as caused by the constables; thc
2al departure of troops, are all too
eli known to be recited here.
Let me say, that the killing of a
~gro man on the :lrd by a stranger
re is regarded by our people with
served indignation. It had no con
~ction with the affair of Jarch 30th.
If the fatal and deplorable occur
nes, of which I have tried to write
ith moderation and with pains tak
g accuracy, and the consequent con
tlsin of society throghout the State
all cause the chainges in the presenit
ethods and personnuel of the admninis
ation of the dispensary law, that are
iperatively demanded for thme sake
the peace and welfare of our whole
ople. and shall produce a. radical
vision of the law so as to satisfy the
oral sense of ou': people, or shall
use the total obliteration of the law
cause of its impracticable nature,
hen some little compensation will be
ied for the heavy cost of death
