JUDGE MCIVER has given Sheppard
his liberty, and it will strike even lay
man as a sound decision. Here was a
man arrested under a warrant charged
with a crime. The indic'.ment had not
been given to the grand jury, and of
course that body had not passed upon
it. Pending this case, Judhe Benet
granted an order testraiting Sheppard
from keeping a place for th 3 sale of
liquors. Upon substantially the same
facts, which had led t> lhs arrest,
brought before him by adidavits h3
issued a rule to show cause why he
should not be punished for contempf,
and was lodged in the nhingn it
of the first judicial circuit, granted tbe
order of injunctio-n while he was in
the fifth circuit, and had not been as
signed to hold court in the fifth~ cir
cuit. He clearly then had no jirisdic
tion to sign such an order. This is
no new question as is shown by th~e
cases cited from our own State Reports
in Judge 'Mclver's opinion.
REGULATION OF THlE SUFFRAGE.
Judge Gefi's decision against those
who have endeavo~ed to arrest the
executipn of Sou-h Carolina's statutes
providing for the elec i.>'n of a Consti
tutional Convention, ends, we suppo~se,
all attempted: interfereacc: with the
elaction and proceedings of that body,
so that we shall now have another
Southern State dealing with the ques
tion, how are the white people of the
State to retain control of their State
Government witbaut violating the
fifteenth amendment to the Constitu
tion of the United States, which for
bids any State to deprive any person
of the right to vote on account of race,
color or previous conditions of servi
tude. A distinguished South Caro
lina, with whom we have convers d
within the past few days, told un that
he expected the Convention it his
State to odopt a device similar to the
Mississig 4 plan. We most sincerely
hope it will not do so. The vital part
of that plan is its prevision that re
quires a person applyidg to be regis
tered as a voter to be ab!e either to
read the Constitution of the State, or
to nderstand it when read to him.
Thoce who can re-d are, of course,
registered without more adlo. Bat the
law gives the registering offcer the
discretion to decide whether a person
who cannot read understands the
Constitution when read to him. This
is a power, of course, which should
never be committed to a partisan
Practically it operates to make the
register d'etermine that every illiterate
white man understands the Constitu
tion when read to him, and that no
illiterate negro understands it. Miss
issippi thus starts her electoral system
upon a foundation of fraud. Tne
infiuence of that fraudulent example
held up by the State to her people
mu't be widespread and lasting upon
their~ character. The State should be
a perpetual example to its people of all
that is high, pure, just anil of good
repute, and when it is, it is always
drawing its people upwards and on
wards. But when it becomes a stand
ing example of deception. trickery
aw! fraud, it is always operating upon
its people as a corroding influence that
corrupts their mins, debauches their
thoughts, and dragg them down, s-e
by step, to all that is base.

The crime of this century was the
act of the Republican party in injecting
,ie semi-barbarous negroes iio the
body politic of the South as voters.
There were many negrccs who pOS
sessed tvery (ualification for suffrage 6
that could be demanded under any
existing rule anywh2re; but the vast
majoi'tv were unfit for its exercise,
and hadi not then and have not now
any apprehension of the dignity and
duty of this crown of ciuzen.hip.
The impor:ant requisi'.e then was to
discriminate between these cla-ses, and
nowhere could this be done so wis -ly c
as by those who knew these people S
and their situation. The crime did nct
consist so inuch indeed in conferring
the right of suffrage upoc the negre
as in passing the fifteenth aimendmen,
which deprived the States of that full
power t, rcgulate the use of the b
suffrage which is absolutcy inditpensa- a
ble to .rderly and good government. t
Simply conferring the suffrage upon
the negro would have been a matter o1 h
small moment if the Southern States a!
had been left to regulate their use of
it. They would have admitted them 1<
to the exercise of the suffrage as they
demonstrated their fitness for it, but w
they would have rt strained the igno
rant and bru'al bordes that threatened,
by their action in maises, their civil- v
zation and even her e:istence. The r
fifteenth aw.e .t ment to the Constitu
tion was the fatal work that put the b
capstone upon th it iorrib!e pariod of I
reconstruction and degradation which s
the wicked leaders of the Republican
party designed for the Sutbernl States s
oat of their maligntant hatrcd of our h
Instead of saying that South Caro- s
dna and Mississippi should not de
prive any person of the tight to vote
on account of re ce, color cr previous b
condition of servitude, that amend- o
ment should have declared that as the
negro had just emerged from a co:di
lion of slavery, amIl was still in a
measure batbaroti, the several States
should have the express tight to pre- q
scribe tte termis and cdiiiotion upon d
which they sh uld be allowest to exer
cioe te right of sufr, and then the
4;cality wou'd have e:.dowed the ne
groes witn the full riJI h.(s t, citizen
-ilp as each iudividual negro dlemon
,irated his capacity for unaderstaiding
ttbe duties or a cli:z -i and for exer
cising them intel:igentiv. Malice and
hlitred of our people, however, prompt
0d the oppo-iPe course, an( the -outh
hts lor th-irtv years suffered a curse
that is withoi p~arallel in the his'.y
of the world, and that showvs few 0
signs of disappearing. t
Tnere is but one way to end this ab- S
normal condition so cruel an I destruc- t
tive to the South, and that is to apply
to it the foundati n priinciple of our r
institudons, that each locality shalh a
regu'ate its own locil affair.s. The I

to say which of ner people are quali i

Editor Moore, of the Charleston Sun,
heard the recent debate between Sena
tor Tillmnan and Professor Dickie on
the comparative merits of prohibition '
and dispensary, and relates the follow- C
in episode: "Professor Dickie read C0
a letter to Mrs. Chapin from Mr. John
Gary Evans, dated May, 1S94, in which'
he sid: 'Both Governor T~lltman and *f
mself are heartily with you for pro- t
hibiion. We have adopted the dis- ~
pensary as a short cuit, but prohibition c
will be the ultimate outcome.' I
"Senator Tillman first said this let- tl
ter was a forgery ; but later he said n
that Governor Evans was a politician e
and running for office int 139k, and-he 1:
shook his head significantly-there was t)
no accounting for men under such cir- -

The strangest case of all was that of
ie chief's own brother. Ie had been
ptain of the line, and his ankle was
nashed by a bullet. Sususa came up

ound, rated him soundly for falling in

The poor fellow made LLte excus3 that
iwas not his fault, as the Uoers had

lmitted the truth of this, and talked

"Well," he said, at length, offering

hief. "Rest softly," and having shaken
ands with him, he gave an order to

Then, men came, and, supporting the
'ounded man, helped him down to the
anks of the stream. Here, at his re
uest, they tied a heavy stone around
is neck, and then threw him into the
ep pool. I saw the whole sad scene,
ad the victim never winced. It was
npossible not to admire the extraordi
ary courage of the man, or to avoid be
ig struck with the cold-blooded cruelty
f his brother, the chief. And yet the act
ras necessary from his point of view.
'he man must either die swiftly or be

ardened these people that they looked
n death as nothing, and were, to do

Sthe motto of the Zulu soldier. It has
be merit of simplicity.
Meanwhile the warriors were looting
he wagons, including my own, having
rst thrown all the dead Boers into a
eap. I looked at the heap; all of them
ere there, including the two stout
caus, poor things. But I missed ene
ody, that of Hans Botha's daugh
r, little Tota. A wild hope came into
iy heart that she might have escaped,
Just then the great Zulu, Bombyane,
ho had left my side to indulge in -the
ongenial occupation of looting, came
ut of a wagon crying that he had got

e stalked up to where we were and

Now, as I could well see, the child was
ot dead, but had been hidden away,
nd fainted with fear.
The chief glanced at it carelessly and
"Find out with your kerrie."
Acting on this hint the black devil
eld up the child and was about to kill
with his knob-stick. This was more

The soldiers cheered and laughed.
Yes! yes!"' they said; "let Bombyane

te fight with assegais."
For a moment I hesitated. What
ance had I against the black giant?
ut I had promised poor Hans to save
o child if I could; and what did it
atter? As well die now as later. How
er, I had wit enough left to make a
vor of it, and intimated to the chief
irough Indaba-zimbi that I was quite
illing to condescend to kill Bombyane
a condition that if I did so the child's
fe should be given to me. Indaba
mbi interpreted my words, but I no
eed that he would not look on me as he
oke, but covered his face with his
Lds and spoke of me as 'the ghost,"
the "son of the spirit." For some
ason that I have never quite under
od the chief consented to the duel. I
ney it was because he believed me to
>more than mortal and was anxious to
e the last of Bombyane.
"Let them fight," he said. "Give
m assegais and no shields; the child
all be to him who conquers."
"Yes! yes!" cried the soldiers. "Let
em fight. Don't be afraid, Bombyane;
he is a spirit he's a very small one."
"I never was frightened of man or
ast, and I am not going to run away

'ubtable Bombyane, as he examined
e blade of his great bangwanar stab
Then they made a ring round us, gave
ien paces apart. I kept my faco as cami
as I could and tried to show no signs of
fear, though in my heart I was terribly
afraid. Humanly speaking, my doom
was on me. The giant warrior before I
me had used the assegai from a child-I
had no experience of the weapon. More- 1
over, though I was quick and active, he
must have been at least twice as strong
as I was. However, therc was no help 2
for it, so, setting my teeth, I grasped a
the great spear, breathed a prayer and c
The giant stood awhile looking at me, 1
and, as he stood, Indaba-zimbi walked f
across the ring behind me, muttering as 1
he passed: "Keep cool, Macumazahn,
and wait for him."
As I had not the slight2s intntion of -
commencing the fray, I thought this <
Heavens! how long tiat lizf-minute i
seemed. It happened inany sears ago,
but the whole scene rises up before my I
eyes as I write. There behind us was <

the piles of dead; round us; was rank
upon rank of plumed savages, standing
in silence to wait the issue of the duel, 1
and in the center stood the gray-haired
chief and general, Sususa, in all his
war finery, a cloak of leopard skin upon
his shoulders. At his feet lay the sense
less form of little Tota, to my left3
squatted Indaba-zimbi; nodding his
white lock and muttering something
probably spells; while in front was my
giant antagonist, his spear aloft and his
plumes bending in the gentle breeze. ]
Then over all, over grassy slope, river
and koppie, over the wagons of the
laager, the piles of dead, the dense
ranks of the living, the swooning child, .
over all shone the bright, impartial sun,
looking down like the great indifferent
eye of heaven upon the loveliness of
nature and the cruelty of man. Down
by the river grewfthorn-trees, and from'
them floated the sweet scent of the
mimosa flower, and came the sound of3
cooing turtle doves. I never smell the'
one or hear the other without the scene
flashing into my mind again, complete:
in its every detail.]
Suddenly, without a sound, B3ombyane
shook his assegai and rushed straight
at me. I saw his huge form come. Like
a man in a dream, I saw the broad spear
flash on high; now he was on me. Then,
prompted to it by some providential im
pulse, I dropped to my knee, and, quick
is light, stretched out my spear. Hie
drove at me-the blade passed over my
gead. I felt a weight on my assegai. It
'vas wrenched from my hand; his great
limbs knocked against me. I glanced
trethed arms, from which his spear
had fallen. His spear had fallen, but
the blade of mine stood out between his
shoulders-I had transfixed him. He
stopped, swung round slowly as though
to look at me, then with a sigh the giant
For a moment there was silence; then
a great cry rose-a cry of "B~ombyane is
dead. The white spirit has slain Bom
byane. Kill the wizard, kill the ghost
who has slain Bombyane by witch
Instantly I was surrounded by fierce
faces, and spears flashed before my eyes.
I folded my arms and stood calmly wait
ing the end. In a momentit wouldhave
come, for the warriors were mad at see
ing their champion overthrown thus
easily. But presently through the tu
mult I heard the high, cracked voice of
"Stand back, you fools," it cried; "can
a spirit then be killed?"'
"Spear him! spear him!" they roared
in fury. "Let us see if he is a spirit.
How did a spirit slay Bombyane with an
assegal? Spear him, rain-maker, and
we shall see."
" Rtand back," cried Indaba-zimbi
again, "and I will show you if he can be
killed. I will kill him myself, and call
him back to life again before your eyes.
Macumazahn, trust me," he whispered
in my ear in the Sisutu tongue, which
the Zulus did not-understand. "Trust
me' kneel on the grass before me, and
when I strike at you with the spear roll
over like one dead; then, when you hear
my voice again, get up. Trust nme-itis
your only hope."
Ihaving no choice It nodded my head in
assent, though I had not the faintest
idea of what he was about to do. The
tumult lessened somewhat, and once
more the warriors drew back.
"Great white spirit-spirit of victory,'
said Indaba-zimbi. addressi ng me aloud
and covering his eyes with his hand.
"hear me and forfrive met. Themse chil
dren are blind with folly, and think
thee mortal bzcause thou hast d.alt
death upon a mortal who dared. a sau
against thee. Deign to kn" l eforx me
and let me piere thy heert w th this
speart, then v~hen I call tupon thee arise
I knelt down, not because I wished to,
but because I must. I had not over
much faith in Indaba-zimbi, and thought
it probable that he was in truth about to
make an end of me. But really I was so
worn with fears, and the horrors of the
night and day had so shaken my nerves,
that I did not greatly care what befell
me. When I had been kneeling thus
for about half a minute Indaba-zimbi
"People of the Umtetwa children of
I"Chaka," he said, "draw back a little
space, lest an ,evil fall on you, for now
he air is thick with ghosts."
They drew back a space, leaving us in
circle about twelve yards in diameter.
"Look on him who kneels before
iou." went on ludaba-zimbi, "and

vitch-fnder, the words of the rain

IH low Dr. Miles' Nervine Brought One
of Kentucky's Foremost Busi
ness Men Back to Health.
I N~ 71l
0 DISEASE has ever presented so many peculiarities, developed se
many aggravatin~g symptoms and bauled so many physicians at
s - LaVrippe. No disease. leaves; its victi-ms so debilitated, useless,
sleples:, nerve~less, as LaG-rippe. It is a disease of the nerves, it
d uses up the tissue, the vit. :ity, the life-giving nerve force that feeds the brain
There~ is one remedy that will replace this worn-out tissue; that will re.
Snew this lost vitality and restore health. Read what Mr. D. W. Hilton, state
.1 agent of the Mutual Lire Insurance Co., of Kentucky, one of the best known
.insura ce- mn in the south, and whose portrait appears above, says about how
h Dr. Miles' Nervine Restored him to hcalth when all else had failed.4
'-In 13SC' and '90 I had two severe attacks of LaGrippe, about eight
t month.: latervening between them, the ]ast one ccnfining me to my bed for
Yfou:r months and attacking my nervous system, with such severity that my
life was despaired of. I had not slept for more th::n two months except by
Sthe use of narcotics that stupefied me, but gave me no rest. For more than
L- eight long weeks I was only conscious of intense mental weakness, agonizing
s bodily pain and the fact that I was hourly growing weaker.
s When in this condition, it seemed like a providc-:tial circumstance that I
learned o f Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine. for in t wo, days after I commenced
*0 using it, I began to improve and in one month's time I was virtually cured,
e and very much to the surprise of everybody who knew of my condition; for
none of them believed I would ever recover. I have been in excellent health
esince and have recommended your remedies to many of my friends, not one
of whom has failed to thank me for doing so, when I have met them again.
. But the best remains to be told. Mrs. Hilton had suffered with severe
nervous troubles for thirteen years and had been treated by sevemi physi
cians, who stand high in their profession, without any perceptible improve
Pment. Seeing how the Nervine had so effectually cured me, she commenced
using it and is now in excellent health. We never fail to recommend it."
