Cleveland vs. the Senate.
The action of President Ci.wvu
LAND in refusing compliance with
tho unjust and illegal demands Ol
the Republican Senate is heartily
commended by all holiovors itt our
system of constitutions! Govern
ment. In placing himself in op
position to tho senate, tho President
has shown not only u through
knowledge of tho constitutional re
quirements of his high ofllce, but
also the firmness to maintain and
transmit unimpaired to posterity
its dignity and Independence at all
hazards. It is a bold step, but tho
time has conn? whoo the will of tin4
people as expressed In tho ( lection
that confered the appointing power
upon Governor CbliVlSLANl), should
bo superior to the whims and intri
gues of a party that could stoop so
low as to<fecu* the Presidency. The
gigantic fraud of '7(3 has not been
By and with tho advice and con
sent of thc S?mate, the President
can exorcise the appointing power;
but, the nature of our government
requires that the Chief Executive
should exorcise tho power of sus
pension in his discretion. This
right must remain free and untram
No charge of abusing the trust
has been made against tho Presi
dent and tho action of tho Senate
in demanding the private papers
and documents for the purpose of
reviewing suspensions, is open to
but one explanation. lt is evi

ject of which is to keep Republi
cans in oflico. No ono (daims that
the public service requires it, but
lt is dono for thc good of tho He
publican party alone. A Demo

Purpose of the Organization.
Sonic weeks ago we expressed
grave doubts as to the sincerity of
thc movement which has been or
ganized with Capt. B. It. TILLMAN
as lender, for thc purpose, ns it is
claimed, of benefiting the funnels.
Since then we have watched every
movement, and from tho indica
tions so far, one can scarcely doubt
but that Ibo whole thing was or
ganized for political purposes. Wo
see not the least objection in hav
ing organizations for farmers all
over the country, indeed, wo favor
this, but let thom organizo for thc
purpose of benefiting themselves
and their neighbors by discussion
of agricultural matters, and seek
to protect the agricultural interest
if it is not protected. But when
ono man comes forward and makes
a wholesale denunciation of all
existing institutions and seeks"; to
turn the farmers against every
other class of citizens, and because
they hold the balance of power, seek
to over-ride tho rights ol* nil other
citizens and capture tho govern
ment, we must enter a protest.
The government is for the people.
of*"the people and* by the people,
and it is a .bud feature of politic?
wjhten one class combines for tin
purpose of forming a monopoly.
Wo advise farmers to organize
clubs, and although we doubl flu
good faith of tho present call for
organization, it can bo turned to
good account. Join, not to bo lead
blindly, and used as a political
tool, but as men of intelligence lo
do nil that will benefit you rsi ive-,

Fnlly one-half the ills of lifo are
imaginary. Speak to a man now
adays, and in nine out of ten cases
tho first word he utters is a com
plaint about something. The far
mor, merchant, lawyer, doctor, me
Chanlc, all have their complaints t<
make, and instead of looking upon
tho bright side Of life and offer Infi
a word of comfort and encourage
ment, how many men make their
own lives more wretched by brood
ing over troublo, and also tho lives
of thoso with whom they come In
contact, by pouring into their oars
a talo of woo.

Tho Import anco Of concentra
tion of. purpose, In order to accom

recognized. \n old proverbamong
tho Greeks, was, "Ile who does ono
thing ls terrible." In this age, the i
mun who Hits about frotn ono
thing to uno)her, with no fixed
purpose, no definite end in view,
ls apt to make lib' n failure. Few
men have the mental capacity or
thc time, to make a success of more
than one occupation. This is un
ago that demands, more perhaps
(bun any other, that men shall
thoroughly understand their busi
ness ami bend nil their en?rgica to
wards the accomplishment of its
demands. But the schoolboy must

Assessed Value ol' Property.
Town and County Factory Exemption.
MR. EDITOR:-"Will some of your
many county correspondents tell
me what this means. I nm nt a
loss to divine. If I am wrong I
hope they w ill correct mc; if 1 am
correct I hopo they will sustain mo
and go about hunting a relief for
tho evil: On pages 42 and 13 of
the Coniptroller-Oenoral's Report
wo lind tho assessed volution of
lands in ?Laurena County to bc
($1.81) four dollars and eighty-font
cents per acre. Percentage of val
uation to selling price (.01) sixty
one per cent., while on pago b'l WC
Hud thc assessed valueon tow n lots
and buildings in Laurens County
assessed at $9,1) 12) nine thousand
nine hundred and forty-two dol
lars, or .518 per cent, of valuation to
selling pi'e e, leaving tho man who
owns real properly in tho country
to pay .'Jd per cent, more than tho
ow ncr of like property lu tho towns,
upon the equaled returns of is*.'..
This seems strange to mc under
thc protection of three Boards of
Equalization. Bul wo have thc
remedy now nt hand. Cor the
present wo must bring tho town
property upas thc levy is made,
or after this, carry tho personal und
real property down. This will cause
only a levy, of more or les-, mills, as
the scale ls turned up or down ns
tho approximation of equality is at
tained. Again, w ill some oito.poinl
out why wo should have 'threo
Hoards to Equate real and personal
property, viz: Township, County
and .Slate Board of Equalization,
and only one, and a State Coard, at
that, for Railroad property in the
various Counties. This looks
wrong. It looks like swearing three
fellow-; to prove your innocence,
and assuming another's Innocence
without proof. It is arrogant, at
least, and tho principio is danger
ous because it is on leo bro;.(I a
gunge, especially since WO pay sn
ad valorem tax: and it seems to mc
in that case, j ti-i as it is with
other property, that the citizens Of
the county in which such property
lays would bo the bosl judges of its
value, ami it ought to bo subject in
all fairness to thc County Board.
Possibly, it may bo a preference
given to such interests, like that
given to manufactories, that they
may protect themselves; but w hat,
I ask, is to become of those less
favored who stand accused und
iced these three witnesses, just
wince and trudge on, poor fellows.
Now this manufactory business
always seemed a str?nge contra
diction to me. We clamor against
i Federal tariff and enact a Btato
tariff, tn open defiance to the State
( 'onstitution, w hich proscribes what
property shall lu; subject and wdial
free of taxation, and descend to tho
lowor scale of rebate, which ls eva
sive and wrong, both in practice
and principle. Better see it in its
truer light. No enterprise tint
cannot carry ?ts own just burdens)
will ever succeed. It is Just like
a lazy man, who wears the charity
of a community only because it is
not known that he ls lazy.

Captain Studing, of ?bj? strueomy:
Mercury which at Chicago recently, ;
tells un exciting story of the inar-1
velous osenpo of n seaman who was
washed overboard in Lake Michigan
dining a storm. About midnight
a tremendous sea struck tho vessel,
which was laboring heavily and
carried John Anderson over tho
side, ll was impossible to round lo,
and his companions gave bim up
for lost. Captain Sterling, who was
nt the wheel, was thunder-struck a
few minutes to sec tho man holding
on to the port (?mirier fender and
endeavoring to climb over the .-.ide"
Captain Sterling sang oui to the
mate lo take the wheel, and rushing
to thc fender rope, reached over ami
pulled Anderson on board.
Tho man Anderson says that
thc sea which washed him over
bond carried him about fifty feet
from thc vessel in the direction in
which she was sailing. He is a
swimmer, and when ho came upon
thc cres! of tho wave he could sec
tho vessel's lights shining faintly
through thc driving snow storm and
struck out ns bcstdio could to get as
near them as possible. In his life
and death struggle bc was materi
ally assisted by the undertow, or
back sea, which'being strong, drag
ged him back to thc vessel. At
this moment another wave swept
over him, and ns he came to the
side of thc surface hin head struck
against thc >ido of the schooner.
Ile retained his presence of mind
and began reaching for tho fender '.
Fortunately he succeeded in
grasping the last one on tho port
side sud was helped on board more
dead than ulive.
