The situation was discussed at longth

it would be entirely impracticable j
to make a change, and nothing they
can do would improve the situation,

We urge a full attendance on the

mistake of permitting their children
to continue visiting and bogin scho d

the fir.-t day. No lesson tho child can
learn will do him more good than that

So let him begin right by being in his

LYCEUM ATTRACTIONS SECURED.

The Lyecum Association com

be engaged by giving your name
to any member of the committee.
Only 85 tickets have been sold. It
is necessary to engage 60 more.
Nearly every member of the
association last year, approached
so for, has joined again,
and it is expected that the rest
will. The men on the commit
tee have been hard at work in
soliciting names, and they request
that those who have not handed
in their names kindly do so at
once. These gentlemen cannot
for obvious reasons do any
further "canvassing, so let
everybody that wants a
good Lyceum course next sea
son give in their names. All the
money goes into the course, and
nobody is compensated for the
work. The 145 tickets must be
engaged by September ist or
there can be no Lyceum next
year. Tickets are sold at $3.00
for two admissions to all
the attractions. Laut ens can't
afford not to have a Lyceum. So
give in your name. .Several of
the individual attractions arc
worth more than the price of the
ticket. Tickets are to be paid
for in October.

Some Reasons Why Mr. Car. is Should
I Advertisement. I
A short Htatentent of the work of the
Commission during the term ju?t
served by Mr. Garrls may be of inter
est to tho people,'as well as of Interest
to the osndidooy of Mr. Garris hiinsolf
In Hie approaching primary. Mr. Gar
ris takos tho position thai tho railroads
and the people are bound to exist to
gether for all time to come, and that
they shou'd live in friendship, if possi
ble. It is not right that. bonC6t claims
of cither against tho other should havo
to be suod for and collected at groat
expense to both; therefore, the Com
mission c in do no higher duty than to
bring, if p ssible, tho people and tho
railroads closer together. Reasonable
la'.es on'y should bo allowed by tho
Commission or desired by the railroads.
The ''average of South Carolina rates
are now b.>lo?v tho averago of the rates
throughout tho South, and especial
care has been g'ven by the ComraisFion
to the agricultural and manufacturing
Ihterrs'.s of the St.%to. On'y recently
has all ootlon manufactures been re
duced material y. It is not excessive
to estimate that the Commission's re
ductions on cotton piece goads bus re
sulted i-i a savlDg to tho mill interests
of the Slate
of something like.$ 5?">,000.00

Total. $471,000 00
Now, this is a conservative estinnte
of tho amount of money collected by
the railroads loss than they would havo
collected on the commerce of the State
for list year had It not been for tho in
terference of tho Commission. The
Commission has diligently under dlffl
cultlos kept up the gradual improve
ment of depots In tho State, so that we
have more now and modorn structures
in South Carolina than in any Stale in
tho South. Sinco his torm began
there are on tho Southorn railroad
tweivo additional trains doing passen
ger service and Ovo on the Atlantic
Coast Line. While conditions can nover
be ontirely satisfactory to all tho peo
ple, is it not fair to Mr Garris to say
that bo, luis done very well sinco that he
has made no demands except those that
During tho p\st yoar there have been
some sirloin accidents which have te
stiltod in the loss of life, yet it is a fact
that there has been hauled in th's

Mr. Garris, who is our commissioner
with only one term of sorvice could In
justice and reason begin without ox

pie, ought ho not to bo retaino 1 as a
matter of business, and that too In the

As soon as the men had been sen

about 11 o'clock and at 1 o'clock
the mob now thoroughly * organized
overpowered the guard, placed
ropes around the negroes necks and
dragged thorn from the Court House.
The mob decided to take the negroes
to the scene of their crime, six miles
distant, but aftor going two miles, on

incoherent manner of the crime. The

Presently a shout wont up to "burn
thorn, burn ihom. " Cato bogged to be
shot but a majority of the mob wanted
to visit the samo doth upon them as
they had visited upon tho Hodges
At this point a man in the crowd
made a speech recounting the horrors
of the crime of the negroes. This in
flamed the mob to tho burning pitch.
The negroes wore chained to a stump
12 feet high with their backs to tho
stump. A wagoa load of plnowood
was piled around tin men and ton gal ?
lonsof kerosene was thrown over them.
Matuhas were applied and Instantly
tho wretched creatures were writhing
and :croa*nlng in awful agony . After
they were dsad some mambars of tho
