LAURENS, S.C., Feb. 8,1888.
TUc Trial .lustire Must Go.
Surely the time bas como when
tlio people of this State can see the
Trial Justice system as a most bur
densome and inefficient institution.
The legislature bas refused to give
us relief, and unless the subject is
agitated and discussed in the Slnto
at large, we may expect to see fer
years to come such appalling sums
as are now published, taken from
the County Treasury annually.
Tho whole system of Trial Justices
is wrong, and we have always ad
vocated a clean sweep. No chango
in the constitution is neoded, for
thc legislature which created can
also destroy. In the first place, it
is wrong in principle ns well as per
nicious in practice so far as this
County is concerned, to allow the
fees of these officers to We deter
mined by the number of warrants
issued, and especially when these |
fees are paid by the County. The
two Trial Justices in Laurens this
year received from the County
i l 12.56, while $1,141.00 is the aggre
gate amount paid to alt. Consta
bles claimed about $900.00 of the
County funds, making a grand to
tal of something like (2,041.96,
which amount is probably one-half
thc cost of the Trial Justices. Now
when we consider the service they
have done tho State, is this a rea
sonable expense ? Is it economy?
"There is no wrong without a rem?
eily." Where is it in this case?
Just here wc venture some sugges
lu the first placo, let there bc but
one man in each County to try
offenders, call him Trial Justice,
Justice of the Peace, County Judge,
or what you will. Give him a sal
ary of $800 per annum, with ti
constable at a salary of $500. Give
to the Grand Jury the power to
commit offenders, and here let the
expense end. This ono Trial Jus
tice at tho County seat may dispose
of civil cases, and the costs and fees
may bo turned over to the County
Treasurer, and we venture to say
tbttt with efficient men in the office
the cost of preserving peace and
order will be materially lowered if
not taken from the County alto
This thing of having a judicial
tribunal at every cross-roads in
creases litigation fearfully. Wc
ofTer in support of Ibis the cost of
the Trial Justico nt this place in
188G, which was $357, when we had
ene, against $112 in 18S7 with two.
We make no charge against the
Trial Justices. So far as we know
tboy have done nothing but what
the law allows, but the point is that
the more Trial Justices wo have
the more litigation, and conse
quently expenso on the County.
Schemes That Fall.
The Watch-word of the hour is
co-operation. Every year brings
its quota of co-operative societies,
which in turn gain their quota of
members, bent on growing strong
and rich by co-operation. The
most extensivo co-operative move
ment that has over claimed the at
tention of tho farmers, was the
Orango. This order had ns a fun
damental idoa, the improvement af
farmers, socially and'educatlonal
ly, and so long as this idea was not
entirely overshadowed by the co
operative, anti-middleman craze
tho Grange was a success. But
like all similar efforts, it did not ad
here to the original purpose of the
founders of the order. The vari
ous divisions began to establish co-,
operative factories and stores, buy
ing and selling agents, and to ex
periment in every field which fur
nishes employment to the brains
and muscle of man. Upon this
rock the order split.
Man is a social being, and this
principle in human nature alone, is
sufficient to upset tho idea that any
society can band together to net in
dependently of their neighbors, and
attai n any great success. These co
operative societies place great
stress upon U)0 assistance one per
son renders another, and this very
Argument carried out, will shake
the groundwork of such organiza
tions. The world is so made that
supply and demand govern tho pro
duction of goods. This Is the law

This will be an interesting year
politically. Al! tho elective ottlces

will be called upon to All them,

who express a willingness to be

and with little hesitation proclaim

usually expresses thc choice of a
majority of Democratic voters. Can
aa much be said willi reference to
Stateofllcers. His a reflection upon
j our State, that after years of homo ,
rulo, tho mass of voters havo no
choice in selecting tho candidates
of tho democratic pur ty. There
may have been a time, when for the
sake of harmony and tho success
of tho party, itv. ?s ulvisnble to al
low candidates to be chosen by dis
creet mei'," but no 8UCh reasons
now exist, und the people are anx
ious to oxerclse their prerogative.
It is not necessary that the State
Officers should be nominated in a
primary election. That is useless,
und would bo troubl some, but the
State Executive Committee of the
party, should by nil means arrange
to have a canvass of tho State by
those who aspire to ofllce, prior to
tho seloction of delegates to the
nominating con\ ontion. This will
givo the people an opportunity of
knowing who nro candidates, and
tho delegates then elected will ex
press the direct voice of the people.
No harm can possibly result from
a thorough discussion of political
questions. Indeed it is absolutely
essential to tho proper exorciso of
the elective franchise. Fair and
full discussion of the questions of
state polity, is educational, and
servos to make mon better inform
ed ot the spirit and genius of our
government; and hence, better cit
izens. It also tends to dissipate pre
judice; to exterminate demagog
uery, which subsists on the credu
lity of ignorance. ! But moro im
portant still, this discussion of iss
ues will allow the people instead of
tho few to dictate the policy of
Let it come; from the people wo
have nothing to fear. Away with
the idea that the people cannot bo
trusted to elect their own rulers to
shape the course of the state! To al
low a few men to meet together and
declare candidates who havo al
ready been nominated by a few oth
er men, while tho people have been
in total ignorance of the whole mnt
teris a tacit cd mission that pop
ular election is n failure. We repud
iate tho idea, and will rejoice to see
the democracy of South Carolina
rise in her might and demand a
deal above the bo ird.
Now is the timeKiu this year of
eur Lord ono thousand eight hun
dred and eighty-eight j and let Lau
rens, foremost in redeeming the
state in '7G be also in the front rank
in claiming a strict adherance to
democratic principles in '88. If
nothing more is grunted, wo trust
that when the nominating conven
tion is called the delegatos from
Laurens at least will protest against
a nomination unf!l tho candidates
are heard hythe people.

A rival to Lula Hurst, moro won
derful in lier powers and mysteries
in ber performances, bas developed
in Milledgeville, On., in the person
of Mrs. Dixie liaygood, widow of
the late City Marshal liaygood,
who was murdered during the pro
hibition campaign. Recent seances
in Milledgeville, witnessed by edi
tors and ethers, and vouched forby
the Chroniolef show that she ls a
medium of great force. Mrs. liay
good does not require the laying of
bands upon the table liefere the
mysterious rapping commences.
She simply takes a sent nt thc table,
rests either ber band or elbow upon
it and asks If a spirit is present.
Immediately the table responds by
rapping. The table does not risc

noise is beard on it like the drop
ping of water. She cnn direct tho
rapping where she pieuses. A
young gentleman who bas lived
here only a year asked if a spirit
present knew lum. One answered
in the affirmative. He asked where
lt bad known him. It replied "Lou

give tho Initials, and finally to spell
tho name of the departed spirit,
which it did. The name was that
