Columbia, Fob. 24.
Resuming again tho cotton (mill)
thread of my narrative, I assure tho
Advertiser that would if ablo sond
by express a box of gold dollars packed
in greenbacks for tho purpose of build
ing a factory in Laurons but it is really
out of tho question at this writing.
Nor would Laurons bo under any obli
ations to mo for tho ploasuee would
o all mine. Parenthetically, It is just
as well to roinind my roadcrs that as a
matter of paramount and urgent ne
cessity tho mill must bo built or tho
town must languish.
Tho Supremo Court has this week
docidod that a trial justice's jury of six
is legal and that twolvo as claimed by
some lawyers aro not requlrod. In
tho same ease, Stato against Sam Wil
liams, tho sentencing of persons con
victed in municipal and trial justice
courts to labor in addition to line or
imprisonment was declarod unconsti
tutional. Therefore town chaingangs
must go out of fashion again.
It is very difficult to toll anything
about the political situation because
Capt. Bon Tlllman, onco a farmer and
now an oflico-sookor by profoselon, is
holding his jaw more discrootly than
usual. I think that tho Reformers (so
called for buncombe) will havo a con
vention of some kind soon. There is a
great deal of cheap fun to bo had at
conventions. Every dologato rogards
himsolf a modern Earl of Warwick and
occasionally tickles the jaw of a blind
tiger. Conventions are always as
morry as the night Is long and I fancy
that the Reformers will indulgo in ono

Undoubtedly Senator Butler is loom
