Thc Rev. l?r. Armstrong Renouncer tli*- Coria
(From tiio Atlantaconstitution.)
Evory one remembers Ibo trial o? Dr.
J. Q, Armstrong by tho ecclesiastical court,
on charges of intoxication audcouUuct un
becomiug O minister.
No one has forgotten tho general regrol
?iver the auuouuccinent of Dr. Armstrongs
conviction anti the subsequent sentence ol
tho Bishop silencing his eloquent voice for
tho space of live years.
Thc sequel to that memorable trial ami
sentence may he rem! to day. Dr. Arm
strong will never preach again.
Since his conviction he has been m thc
insurance business. Although suspended,
ho was still a minister.
In Augusta a short time ago he attended
nu insurance banquet, lt is claimed that
he was Intoxicated there, lb" dollied it.
however, and his friends denied it. Within
the last two weeks a number of iiflidtivtts
have been made to the elici t that he was
Intoxicated at the banquet, or on the day
afterward. These affidavits were lodged
with the authorities ol' the church, and an
Episcopal minister w rotc to Dr. Armstrong
thal the only way to avoid another trial was
to renounce the ministry. Dr. Armstrong
at once telegraphed that he would renounce
the ministry of tho Episcopal Church, anti
tho Constitution's Information isthat he did
.so last Saturday.
When spoken to aboill the maller hy a
Constitution reporter, Dr. Armstrong would
not talk. He was nun li surprised thtrt tin
news had gotten out. He said he had
nothing whatever to say concerning the
matter. 1 ?ut would lol his COU rsc become
public through thc regular channel.
A gentleman, who is a friend of Dr.
Armstrong, said, however:
.'The letter has been written. I have not
seen it. but 1 understand that it recites that
tho doctor desires to relieve the Episcopal
Church from any responsibility whatever
for his action, ami desiri s lo bo relieved of
any responsibility to the ministry. The
reasons tor this, L believe, are that he felt
that he could not. with consistency, or
with dignity or peace, maintain a relation
with a church, the authorities of which
were unfriendly to him, whether justly or
unjustly. He felt that he would have to
either renounce the ministry of tin1 church
or leave Atlanta, which he had determined
to make his home. Ile chose the former
Thc gentleman was asked w hat Dr. Arm
strong would t?o in the future.
"I do not know," he said. "For the
present, ni least, bc w ill continue in tho
service of the ?quitable Insurance Com
pany, which is pleasant ami profitable. 1
think, however, his whole inclination leads
him to public speaking, and 1 believe that

A \\ millington Scandal.
There is a SCaiidal agitating social and
club circles w hich is now on every tongue.
So much is this story turned over that ll is
now as widely disseminated in Washington
as if the details of the story had been pub
lished in the World. Thc story involves
an ex diplomat w ho was once an ornament
in (ho Aim rican loreign service. For sonic
time it has been ll source of wonder how
this retired official manages to live amt go
about In good society as he has done, as
OVOiy one knew that he had no private for
tune. Recently a well known public man
missed some valuable jewels from his house.
He placed the matter in the hands of a pri
vate detective, who traced tia missing arti
clcs to the 0X-Olllclnl. The further devi l
opinent of the en. o showed that a lady
member of thc public man's family had
taken the jewels, and the ex official who
had be-' i devoted to her, received and dis

the lad)' in question has not lu cn made

Contrary lo the expectations of the friends

under thc act of 1801. Whether there will
be time, in view of Un: backwardness of
tho appropriation bills, is a question. Mr.
Culbcrson, of Texas, offered in committee
a substitute for thc bill, Which, had it been
agreed to, would have largely bcnoflttcd
thc South. It was based on the idea that
thc Senate bill only carried with it partial
justice. This substitute retained all the
features of the origina! bill regarding the
return of that part of thc lux which thc
States had paid and the remission of that

The Homestead K.xouiptiou,
Tho Columbia Record agrees with tho
Herald in holding that something should
bo douo with tho homestead law for tho
building up of credit. Ju talking with
a lawyer from another State some lime
ago, ho remarked that Iiis ??tate, too,
had a homestead law, but it was a clu ck
on fraud, and not an encouragement to
dishonesty. Their law gave a man no
oxomption from his honest dobts unk .
tho homestead was set off before tho
debts were contracted, but on thc con
trary prohibited bim from setting aside
to his family more property than a lixed
amount, ami then trailing upon his own
appearance and reputation for wealth,
and thereby defrauding tho ignorant.
In our State a mun may give everything
he has to his wile, live like a lord, and
when men, ignorant of this secrot ar
rangement, demand payment [or just
debts, may defeat their claims on tho
ground that ho has nothing. And even
if he has neglected to do this thing, our
?aw still says he can keep SI,500 before
he pays a dollar on his most sacred obli
gations. The fact is that WO have en
tirely misunderstood this law. lt had its
origin in the West, ami was in tho na
ture td a bankrupt law. Men w ho had
lost everything in the Fast frequently
went to a Western State, took up a gov
ernment "section."* cleared up the
wilderness, ami built them a home. In
tho enjoyment of this koine tiny wore
protected irma tho rapacity of loreign
creditors; and this was right. But these
conditions do not exist in South Caroli
na, and WO have no need of the law as it
now operates. If a man meets misfor
tune, aud gives np everything to his
creditors, they should forgive him whet
he. cannot pay. But when a man con
tracts an honest debt, has tho proporty
to pay it, and rofuses to do so, it is de
moralizing and disgraceful for tho law to
shield him in his dishonesty. Spartau

persisted in, capture would be certain and
