We are not In favor of calling a
constitutional convention at this
time, but when such a convention
Ia called we have one suggestion to
make, and lt is that the section of
our old constitution which prohib
its ministers of tho gospel engag
ing In politics, bo re-enacted.
We yield to no ono in reverance
for tho office of ministers of the
gospel. Indeed, their work is far
too sacred and highly exalted above
other avocations to bo dragged into
the dubious paths of politics. Al
though history tells of States and
Kingdoms that have failed to sur
vive a union between Church and
State, we soo even in free America;
and stranger still, in South Carolina
ministers who forsake thc work of
the Master to enjoy the honor of
their fellowmen-sucli honor as
comes from holding a public office.
Quite a number of ministers are
member* of the present legislature
of South Carolina. From a close
observation of the proceedings of
the late session, we say emphati
cally that they are out of placo.
The legislature is not the place foi
sermons, although each of the cler
ical legislators have taken occasion
to deliver several sermons at a cost
to tho State of from $300 to $100
each. These mouthy members are
responsible for the hurried legisla
tion that always results when time
ls wasted in high-flown, irrelevant
Tho work of a minister is of
greater importance even than that
of a legislator; yet it is diflerent,
aud we think should be performed
separate and apart from legislative
THAT LOCAL LEGISLATION.
Two weeks ago we mentioned tho
fact that the tendency of the pres
ent legislature was to pass local
laws. Now, to make a synopsis of
tho work of the last session we
have 124 acts passed. Of these 88
are of a local or personal nature,
and 32 aro general. Each of the
124 measures, local and general,
cost tho people on average of $333
each. Wo do not censure the legis
lature for tho small amount of
"Work which has been accom
plished, for in our opinion we have
already too much legislation, but
We will rejoice to see tho timo when
tl?e General Assembly of South
Carolina will insist on passing laws
for tho State instead of tho Coun
ties. This kind of legislation in
this State originated with the Slock
Law, and as every man knows, it
was shown than to bo a failure. It
was first left to the Counties and
most of them voted against it, so
tho legislature finally decided that
the County was not tho proper law
making power, and consequently
the general stock law was passed.
But the stock law might properly
be left to the Counties. Some sec
tions would be bencflttcd by it
while stock-raising and grazing
soctions would not. Hut wo fail to
see why Trial Justices and other
public'offices should bo empowered
todo certain acts In ono County
and not in another.
THE A., O. ? W. RAILWAY.
We have learned from a reliable
source that Susong A Co., who have
purchased the above railroad, arc
backed by men who have no con
nection or interest in other railroad
enterprises. They are Tennessee
men who are working in the inter
est of Knoxville. From this fact
wo may confidently expect to seo
the road which passes through a
portion of tills County, giving an
outlet to this section in tho great
West, and at no distant day. A re
mark of Mr. Rumbo, of the com
pany, Is significant:
"If wo couldn't seo daylight be
tween hero nnd Knoxville you
don't suppose we would bo putting
all thia money and work between
here and Angusta, do you?"
A BETTER DAY COMINO.
Presidr-nt Olaroland's noble itandfor Far
mers a#d Lower Federal Taxes!
Having written so much on tlw>
subject of tho Tariff duties or Tax
us and having said so much in en
deavoring to direct tho attention
of your "readers, the people, to the
tax drainage to which we aro sub
jected, and tills cause being ono so
iir from within our reach, and any
Toinedy apparently to immy so
horseless, that it ls with no little
" jtlon that"we are aldo to
this communication somo
Miraging report of tho
outlook for tho probability of re
lief, a relied" that will not deni lu
tho fractions of a cent but which
will deal in dollars. Keeping in
mind that "Tax payer's" ? special
witness lion. George D. .Tillman,
says wo pay seven times xs much
in taxes to tho United States ns wo
do to the State, that our St ate tax
es aggregate about $800.000, that
Gov. Richardson estimates our tax
es under tho Federal tariff at some*
where from $16,000,000 to $18,000,000
keeping these facts lu mind, let us
see what is said of the chances of
Tariff reforms, by those in the host
position to know. The Washing
ton correspondent of the New
York World writing from "Wash
ington, I). C., Dec. 7th, says;
"The tariff reformers are iu a bet
ier humor now than they wore at
tito last session. A radical change
has taken place since tho day Mr.
Morrisson called up nis tariff bill
last July, when tho vote on consid
eration was defeated by 86 Demo
crats, who upon that occasion vo
ted with tho Handall wing of the
party. The result of thc late elec
tions h:is changed the opinion upon
me tariff question of eleven gent lo
mon who voted against considera
tion of tho bill,w .io will, when the
issue be again brought before the
House, vote not only for (ho con
sideration, but likewise advocate
the reduction of the revenue."
The same correspondent after
speaking of Congressman Hewitts
zealous demand for tariff reform
passes to the temper of Congress
man Morrison, of whom he says;
"Mr. Morrison is more encourag
ed, possibly, than Mr. Hewitt. The
tariff leader has had many things
within the past two days to make
him feel that he will faro much
better whoo he calls up bis bill
than he did tn July. He says tho
sentiment hus changed; that ho
has has already had a prom Iso of
support from about fifteen num
bers who opposed him now. It is
said that others can be relied upon
to follow him when tho time conies
and from present indications he
believes he will be able to get the
bill boforo tho House and have it
discussed. He is confidant that he
will bo able to pass tho greater and
more important features of it."
But the most encouraging part
in this connection is the earnest
frank and emphatic manner in
Which President Cleveland, in bis
message to Congress, shows tho
reason for Tariff reform. Speaking
of thc surplus revenue that under
the present taritr taxes aro wrung
from the people, the President
"We have arrived at a stage of
superfluous revenue which bas
aroused thc people to a realization
of the.fact that the amount raised
I professedly for the support of the
Govcrnmenr is paid by them as ab
solutely as if-added to the price of
the things which supply their dully
wages-it was paid at Axed periods
into thc hands of tho tax gatherer."
Again he says;
"Tlie present condition of affairs
constrains our people to demand
that, by a revision of eur revenue
laws, tho receipts of the Govern
ment shall be reduced to thc nec
essary expense of its economical
administration, and this demand
should bo recognized and obeyed
by tho peoples representatives in
tlie Legislative branch of the Gov
Of the laborers he jussly says :
"We recognize In labor a chief
factor In the wealth of the Repub
lic, and wo treat those who have it
in their keeping as citizens entitled
to the most careful regard and
thoughtful attention. This regard
and attention should bo awarded
them, not only because labor is th<
capital of our workingmen, justly
entitled to its share of Government
favsr, but for tho further and not
loss important reason that the la
boring man, surrounded by his fam
ly in his humble home, as a con
suiiKir, is vitally Interested In al
that cheapens the cost of living
and enables him lo bring within
his domestic circle additional com
forts and advantages."
Ol thc farmers, bear him and i
Federal taxes arc not deserving
consideration of those who under
take to tell us "what's the matter?'
But our farmers and agricultu
rists, those who from the soil pro
duce thc things consumed by them

of our citizens in a Just and cure

cause further, while tho levy for
State taxes is only r>} mills, or a

the average Federal taxation is -Ki
