The License Tax.
Our good neighbor, the Clinton
Chronicle, don't like the license tax
system of that town and talks right
out in meeting :
"The present license system is un
just, ill-constructed, illy executed and
displays absolutely no*intelligence in
its preparation. Wo understand that
it .-as borrowed bodily from Laurens.
If so it is do credit to the Laurens law
makers. Clinton has no use for such a
crude law and it must go. Kven if it
is retained as a law, it will never be
practically operative, or universally ap
plied: and for a town to take laxes from
one man and not from another is hardly
better than robbery."
We aro not prepared to tackle so big
a Subject as the tax system, but beg to
suy for the bcnollt of our cot em por or y
that the system was not original with
Laurens. Wc don't like taxes in any
form. We are with tho Irishman who
being told to answer as to how he would
be tried (by Cod and my country) an
swered that "he did not want to be
tried atal. atal. ycr Honor."
Let us not weary of well-doing, es
pecially when it contributes to our own
well-being. The Winsboro News and
and Herald noting the proposed in
crease in the capital stock of the Lau
rens Furniture Factory emphasises the
importance of ''.small industries" to
towns. A man must fade and shrink
into nothingness, because he must not
continue to grow. Hut a town need
not cease to grow, because new enter
prises add to its youth and vigor, for
young and old men should put their
heads to-getber to doviso something for
tho benefit of tho city and then put
their eapital, energy and intelligence
together for it- conduct. Hy the way,
when it was proposed to have the
streets of a town in England paved
with wooden blocks, Sidney Smith sug

Not a Hit of IIarm.
There is u disposition to criticise the
fact that Gov. McSweoney's refusal to
accept, the Senatorial resignations has
not stopped a big campaign and much
political pow-wow. Hut what matters
it? 11 is holiday time with everybody
?and if anybody enjoys a political ha

Tho politicians and political aspirants
want to talk mid be heard of ail men,
and It would be cruel not to turn out
on occasion and hoop them up. So
tho complaint of too many political
meetings is premature and not these
meetings, for those who enjoy them.

with you at this reunion of Co. ' F
14th S. C. V. at Yarborough's Mill on
old 'Knoree, but circumstances and con
ditions, beyond my control, prevent at
this time, but I shall look forward to
your reunion next year to be with you.
I nope that the grim reaper will spare
you all another year so that I can be
with you in this lifo and on this side of
the Klvor once more: but should my
self or any of you depart from this lit"
before another 19th of August, remem
ber that it is but a shadow that sop
erato us here from those who have

that the spirits of all the members of

will be near us and well ploased with
those who attend this reunion for the
purpose of keeping their memory
bright in our hearts.
1 cannot command language to ex
press to you all the satisfaction it
would alTord me to see you and tobe
with you on this occasion to talk over
and recount tho events wo were en
gaged In nearly 40 years ago, the Incl
| dents of camp life, the long weary
I toilsome marches, the bivouac in the
rain or snow, when wo laid down to
gether to pet such rest as we could,
I often without rations ami without Uro
to warm our benumbed and weary
bodies, foot sore, tired and hungry, the
strife and confusion of many battles
where many of our best and bravest
shed their blood and laid down their
lives for a cause that was and Is just,
and if not already will be recognized
as righteous by all impartial judges
and minds throughout the world?a
cause which being crushed by brute
force cannot nor will not die, and which
some time will bo vindicated even
our enemies and their descendants will
become convinced that wc were right
and themselves wrong, that every Con
federate soldier who fell in that strug
gle gave up his blood and his life not
to bold the African in slavery but to
uphold and maintain the freedom of
the individual, the liberty of tho citi
zen, human rights, the right of the
poorest and humblest to be regarded as
human, and to keep the souls, Mesh and
blood of Americans above the rule and
dominion of the god of mammon, the
Golden Galf, tho only divinity wor
shiped to-day by the ruling ami gov
[ erning powers of this nation. It was
not to liberate the negro thsl caused
the war, but to enslave free white men.
to subdue and break the spirit of Amer
icanism so that this country could be
ruled by the Tory Aristocracy, repre
sented by Alexander Hamilton, when
this government was beinir formed.
Also, the puritanism of the North en
vied the wealth of the South, and t heir
intention was to impoverish The South
ern people because they knew that if
the Southern people could be subdued
their schemes of aristocratic govern
ment would have no other impediment.
I The abolisfonists know that slavery
would dio out and the African bo re
turned to bis native land if they would
keep their mouth shut and let the
South alone: but to accomplish their
objoct they used slavery as a pretext?
they freed tho negroes from personal
masters and made slaves of every man,
woman, and child In the United States
who hits to work for a living, to the
money power. Wo arc to-day in more
abject slavery to the money power than
the negroes wore to personal masters,
although the humiliation accompany
ing such an admission prevents many
men from acknowledging tho fact. The
self sacrifice and devotion of the Con
federate soldiers to the cause of hu
manity at large will yet be recognized
by all fair minded men everywhere.
Let not the name of traitor or rebel
as applied to us by our enemies deter
us from keeping the memory of our
fairen comrades ever-green in our
hearts, and without malice, hatred or
envy, firmly maintain the justice of
our cause and the honesty and int verity
of our motives. Lot it not bo taught
our children or ?ny of our people that
those, of us who gave up thoir llvoa in
that struggle were misguided, dishon
est or insincere in their devotion to
to the cause of liberty ami humanity
everywhere, and that while we ack
nowledge defeat wo maintain the hon
esty of our acceptance of the rosult of
that war, but that we have nothing to
apologize for, nothing to bo ashamed of
and nothing to regret but the loss of
so many of our comrades, kindred and
friends, and that we were not success
Hoping that you will enjoy your
selves,that many if not all Of you may be
present, and that In renewing the ties
that hold us together on so many bat -
tlefields from (Jaino's Mill to Appamat
tox, that all will remember me as ever
their friend and comrade.
