The wisest provision of our Law, a
thousand years old, demands that tbe
proceedings of tbe Grand .Jury should
be secret. Judge lionet squirms at
llfty (60??0?50 ) "No Ullis" in Dis
pensary cases being returned hy the
Grand Jury of Charleston, now sitting
in that city. His Honor should know
that the (.'rand Jury Und the evidence
insufficient. The Judge should not
burn Ids books, but read them. And
His Honor should knbw that the reason
of "secrecy" in the Grand Jury room
is for the protection of the weak
against the strong. The poor man who
is on the < irand Jury is not to he jump- |
ed upon by the purse proud citizen when i
lie comes out, for not "presenting" the \
big man's victim. The (.rand Jury is
the Gibralter of the weak. If the
Judge were the "Grand Jury," he
would soon he Pellt Jury also, as well
as "Dispenser" of J ustloe and we would
soon Und him at the place of execution,
currying away the halter as a souvenir
of the blind Priestess, who is supposed
to hold the even scales.
Wednesday afternoon while a wit
ness was on the stand and being exam
ined he was asked If he wus in the habit
of carrying a pistol. He replied that
ho occasionally did so. He was then
asked if ho had a pistol in his pocket
at that time. ? He replied In tho aWr
matlve and produced the pistol, which,
by tho direction of Judge* Buchanan
was turned over to an officer of tho
court. This was the most surprising
occurrence that has resulted from the
examination of a witness in this court
house within the memory of the atten
dants at court. The result was sur
prising, not that the party under ex
amination had a pistol on his person,
for if everybody in court had been ex
amined in the same way and had been
as candid as the witness no one doubts
but that many other pistols would have
been brought to light. The law
against carrying concealed weapons is
tho most generally disregarded law on
the statute hooks and few people seem
to think it wrong to violate it.?Sumter

Very curious. A very funny witness.
The questions were Improper and the
witness should have declined to answer

For a hundred years young Caro
linians coining out of the high
schools and colleges have had their
attention directed to "Constitutional
Limitations" with the example of
the leading men pointing to the learn
ed professions, and the ways of ambi
tion, mostly political. Hut times
change and we perforce must change
with them. Probably a thousand young
men and a thousand young women

In South Carolina it is no longer
purely an agricultural condition. Ag
ricultural fields are also crowded to
choking. Again, not one in ten far
mers can turn over to daughter or son
a conveniently equipped plantation or
farm. It is soon here in our midst to
be a mechanical age. Competition will
be sharp, and skill alone is the weapon
of victory. A railroad President pass
ing the shops of his company found
the seventeen year old son of a distin
guished lawyer friend, in overalls,
Working with hammer and tongs, and
immedately called upon his friend and
offered pecuniary aid to the father to
send the boy to college. The offer was
rejected, the boy was kept at the shops
and now as a practical railway man,
who worked his way up, enjoys an al
most princely salary.
The times change and we must be
prepared to meet the change?to ride

From the Richmond Times wc ex
tract the following article:
THE QUESTION Or THE HOUR,
ft was announced several days ago
> that the Rev. Dr. s. A. Steel, of Pe
tersburg, had accepted an oiler to take
charge of an industrial school in Ala
bama. In speaking of tin; matter yes
terday, Dr. Steel said that thoughtful
mon in Alabama had longsince arrived
at tin* conclusion that there was an
economic side to the so-called race
problem. These men have seen the
work that Hooker Washington is doing
in Tuskegce, turning out each year
from his industrial school a large num
ber of young negroes who have been
trained for the industrial world, and
they are convinced that it is necessary
to establish industrial schools in that
State for the training of white hoys.
Dr. Steel is going Into this work with
earnestness and enthusiasm, and with
the determination to give the white
boys of Alabama an opportunity to get
a praotioall education. We believe
that ho is undertaking a great and
good work and we heartily agree with
him in his view of this question. There
ought to he, there must bo, industrial
schools all over tho South, and we of
"Virginia ought lo tako the matter to
heart. There is a line school r.t Hamp
ton for the practical train! r* of young
negroes, but there is no similar school
in Virginia comparable to Hampton
school for the training of white hoys.
After all, it is training that counts.
We may talk as much as wc please
about the superiority of the white
man, lint the skilled mechanic, whother
his face be white or black, has an ad
vantage over the man who has had no
training. This is a practical age, an
industrial age, und the South is lace
to face with a new condition. The
South is no longer exclusively an agri
cultural community. It is fast becom
ing a manufacturing community, and
its greatest need to-day is an abun
dance of skilled labor. We have noth
ing to say against the trniningof black
men. The whites cannot if they would
c'ose up the school at Tuskegce and
the school at Hampton for the training
of tho negro. Hut Southerners cannot
afford to sit idly by ami sec such schools
as thes? flourish and havo no similar
school for the education of the whites.
True, the Mechanics' Institute of Rich
mond is doing a splendid work in this
direction, but this school is living on a
limited income and it must operate
within its limited means.
What are Virginians going to do
about it? It is a question that they
must seriously and prayerfully con

This exhibit should be a mutter of
pride and patriotism with the women
of South Carolina. Other slates have
had expositions and made splendid suc

most satisfactory in the mid. Why
should not our stale do as well or even

Died, at Laurons, May 11th, 1001,
Mr. John Frederick Felts, son of John
and Elizabeth Felts (later Mrs. Teague)
In tho forty-fifth year of his age. Also
on l?th May, following, Fred Harris
tho infant son of Frederick and Amelia
Felts, aged twenty-two months, was
laid to rest by the side of his father.
As WO viewed the beautiful waxen form
of little Fred how impressive! The at
tachment of father and son, and the
separation how brief, ere they were
re-united: and we are sure little Fred
is sweetly resting in the arms of Jesus.
The circumstances attending the death
of Mr. Folts were peculiarly sad. Hav
ing experienced pecuniary reverses, he
had given up his usual business avoca
tions and retired to ti more humble
walk In life, and while discharging his
duty faithfully, he was stricken with
disease, from which he suffered much,
but bore with unmurmuring Chris
tian resignation to the will of (iod.

the restless agony and intense SU Her

be released from its earthly tenement,
and Heaven's portals wide open swing,

Mr. Felts was an honest man, and a
consecrated, consistent Christian,?it
can bo truly said of him as evinced in
his life, "For him to live is Christ and
to die Is gain." In his Christian char
acter he was unostentatious, and in
Ills life was a "living expression of
tho holy gospol ho professed, and ac
tions shone to nrovo the doctrine all
divine." It was his privilege to live to
sec two of his children ushered Into
the fold of Christ.
It. was his at I in on i i ion and desire I hat
his children should be "likeolive plants
around bistable:" his daughters as cor
nerstones, polished nflcr the similitude
of n palace.
Mr. Felts was a devoted husband, an
exemplary father, an affectionate
brother, a kind neighbor, a sincere
Christian and true friend.
He leaves, to lament his early death,
a wife (noe Miss Amelia Moore) whom
he had shielded from all care and respon
sibility ; brothers and sisters, and seven
children, (one of whom is Mrs. Oscar
Teague) tho oldest a son, upon whom
must fall tho mantle of his sainted
father, as the holp of his widowed
mother, brothers and s'sters.
To tho Mather In heavon who has
"promised to be tho comfort of their
alllictlori," that He will heal their be
rcaved hearts in this thoir llrst great
sorrow of death in their home, to take
Jesus for thoir trun, protector and
guide, that they will moot their loved
one in the beautiful homo above, ami
sing His praiso forover, whore parting
and sorrow aro unknown.
"The pains of death are past,
Labor and sorrow cease,
And life's warfare closed at last,
His soul is found in peaco."
"Soldier of Christ well done,
Praise by thy new employ,
And while eternal ages run,
Rost in thy Saviour's joy."
