The Greenville Bolt.
In Greenville County Mr, Walker,
whom the Deraooratlo Executive Com
? mittee declared defeated in the pri
mary, ran iu the general election for
Supervisor against Mr. Speegle who
was the nominee on the regular Demo
We are glad that Greenville coun'y
had a "bolt." We know nothing of
the merits of the controv? rsy.
Mr. Walker may havo had
no justification. We do not know.
Nor care. If Mr. Walker was ablo to
calm'y review tbe whole mat'or and
houertlv ' make up his mind" ?hat he
was swin tied out of the nomination; If
the fraud was plain and flagrant, theu,
in toi- vow, his pl< dge ceased tob)
binding on his conscience. Fraud
vitiates a contract. We aro glad of the
bolt because we think it just as well
that p.opln understand that a slavi-h
cbedlenco to tho party maoblne is not
wise and not conduo've to party health.
The icsult, of this bolt will be that in
Greenv.ll? ouunty the primaries will
Leroaftrr bo conducted with greater
Many newspapers hnve been fond of
quoting, when it suited their purposes,
an expression of General Hamptcn
that "An Independent Is worse than a
Radical." Whrn the language was
vsed, somo 26 years ago In the cam
paign of 1878 It was true. The Demo
crat* had won the hard fight of '76 but
the negro party was still menacing and
in the face of tho danger of a return to
misrule, it was imperative that white
men be united, rega dies? of any ln
* dividual sacrifices involved. No auch
necessity exists now. The white voters
are in the proportion of over 10 to 1 to
the blecks In this State. In Greenvl?o
they aro nearer 50 or a 100 to 1. It is
nb urd to apply General Hampton's
words to theso times and they rareL
are applied with a'nc-rlty.
Of ccurae the "bolt," like all heroic
remcdi-p, is dangerous. A few repeti
tions of it and the result is par'y de
molition. It happens upon occasion
that to support the party organiz viion
involves a greater violation of one's
sense of right than to r.u-o tho Hag of
rebellion. Upon those oc aeions let It
be raised. If the \ arty machine Is p-?r
miot d to be supreme, soor.er or la'er
it will become corrupt.
This Is written be'ori the in sift of
the race In Greenville is known. It L
possible that Mr. Wa kor is mistaken
in his notions of tho treatment he re
caiveel from the Greonvillu Committee.
It is possible that th.? facts did not war
rant him in bolting and that ho knew
it. That Is wirb bin own conscience.
But, If ho was sincere in his belief Hint
he was tlefraudeu, he has commlt'.cd no
offence against public or pirty morn'-.
The people of Greenville among wh'm
he livch are the jurors who de.erm'nf
whether or i ot iho facts werf s cb as
to justify a clearheaded ar.el reaconab.e
, man in tho lino of conduct which le
Cnpt. Hitch's Ca^e.
Without attempting to maintain that
Capt. Hitch of Savannah behaved as a
soldier should havo behaved at State?j
boro, wo believe that he has been tho
Object of a great deal of foolish critic
Liu. The simple truth is that militia
men are net soldiers. Some of them
maybe. Many of them are not. This
is not saying that militiamen are n- t
b-ave. It Is merely saying that they
ire not trained soldiers.
Yo.tr trainetl professional Foldler is a
maohme u*?ed to kill. When directed
i<> kilt, it kills and cares not what or
who. Half n company of regulars at
Htatesboro would have stopped the
lynching of the nogroe?. They m'ght
have killed a score of men but they
probably would have killed none. The
mob would have knovn ihst tho "regu
lars" would shoot.. Tbe mob* felt that
the militia probthly would not sboot
and, hence, tested it. The mob was
right in its guess.
The militiaman does not In'end to
kill his neighbors and friends. His
mental attitude is wholly different
from the soldier's. Bloodshed is a se
rious thing to him. The militiaman it>
ejuito as brave as the regular but he is
not In tho same bu?inets as the regu
lar. Ten years ago many South Caro
lina militiamen disobeyed orders. Oth
ers refused to go to Darlington save
with the understanding that thay
would in no case fire en the D rllngton
people. We upheld them. But this
was not soldier- like on the part of the
South Oarolino militia. Nobody
raid it was.
The difference between Capt. Hitch
and other milltlamon isthat Hitch was
trioJ by a test which o'.herj would
have failed to pass just as he failed.
We do not say that all would have
filled. But most would have failed.
It will be answered that a man should
not becomo a militiaman unless ho Is
ready to behave as a soldier. This may
be true. Wo aredls ussing tho militia
an it Is, not as It ought to be.
Meanwhilo the militia as comptnics
pre valuable. Thoy will fight when
they want to light and they would want
to fight In stimo cases that we can im-1
agino. Not until tho militia becomes
a standing army ctn it be r<t)iod upon
to shoot tho people of its own blood
even if thoso people deserve killing to
prevent a crime.
We believe that Captain Hitch has
plenty of courage, as much as ihe aver
age man. Tim average man in this
country has plenty. The difference
between the c t'z-m and tho cltiz n
soldier is small.
The differenco between tho cltiz n
and tho soldier is great.

II II Berlin chaise, in lieu of the
I ruined chariot, bearing Mrs.
Tlllotson and Mistress Anne on a visit
to Berkeley, drew through Ashby's (Sap,
along slopes spotted with clumps of
Ulnc and goldcnrod.
Francis Byrd rode beside tho win
dow, for he was to Join Lord Dnninoro
at Winchester, whither the governor,
in a burly lit of rage at his recalcitrant
burgesses, had betaken himself to
await the gathering of troops from the
northern counties for the expedition
ngnlnst the restless Shnwanec Indians
on the Scloto river.
They had met but few travelers of
quality so far to the westward?for the
most part wandering petty chapmen or
perhaps a Palatinate trader coming
from Pennsylvania. These latter drevo
teams of six or eight horses wearing
jingling bells, and their huge Conesto

tho lower settlers.
At the notched summit Byrd rose In
?The Ubounando, Anne!" ho cried.
Below, where the unbroke sunshine

"Aye. a proof of my loyalty. These

It stood under the wide shed, huge
and ungainly. Anne went to It and
patted the dark leather and laid her
young cheek against the purple cush
"lie is here, llien!" she cried. "I
wonder If we could see hlin." Drawing
Mrs. Tillotson after her, she passed to
the wide low window and peered with
in. It was flung half open, and through
It came glassy tinkles and a babble of
Colonial costumes wore fiown through
the long room, und here and there
were royal uniforms flagrantly crlui
?Ron. Cocked hats and greatcoats lay
about on the chairs, and riding whips
Were scattered on the tallies.
Opposite thoni. against the farther
wall, Burnnby Itolph of Wcstbain sat
squat In his oak chair where the can
dles glinted on his goltl luce, stirring
With hi-; dress sword a punch of ,Iu
mnlca ruin in a great bowl. Beside
him, his arm (lung carelessly back,
lounged Cnpttilli Foy. Now the spirit
was In his mottled, sensual face, and It
seemed to cloak a devil in scarlet.
The girl shrank back Instinctively
and held her aunt's arm more closely.
Then she turned her eyes over the up
".Mistress Anne!" exclaimed a voice
"Oh," she cried, turning, "Mr. Hen
ry! HOW good it Is to see you!"
lie took |?.,. hand and bowed to Mrs.
"It seems as If we bad not soon you
for a year," Anne continued, looking
UO, Into his sallow face and then, with
a hint of approval, at his dark wig and
suit of minister's gray.
He snw her glance and smiled a little
quizzically. "1 am being fast spoiled,"
be said. "I have a plenty of coats good
enough for mo, yet once I go to the con
gress I must get a new one to please the
eyo of other folk, t< am on my way
back from Philadelphia now."
"Are you lodged at the King's Arms?"
asked the elder lady.
"At the Three Hams. Motlllnkfl the
royal tang lierealwut Is a bit strong for
me. I have a scent for It like a beagle
for a porcupine."
"Lord Fairfax Is bore," said Anne,
"but he has not yet seen us. Wo shall
surprise him." She clapped her bands
together softly. "I wonder bow be will
look. We were playing eavesdropper
Just now. Aunt Mildred and I, only to
steal a view of him. Is it very dread

"I shall leave her to you, Mr. Henry,"
said Mrs. Tillotson. "The chests uro

As they crossed to the window A line

Aitue, "th to by the door."

eyes sought out sat quietly apart, his j
K'.vord across 1:1s knees, with his body
servant standing behind him. His near
sighted glances, sent squinting, search
??d tho assembly with n lurking dis
trust; They were king's men truly,
hut uol gentle like those of his own
lime. Ho turned his face toward Foy
as ihe latter, poundln,*y the table with
his sword, suddenly .-poke up loudly:

open disapproval of the stamp net days
and loved Henry for that If for naught
Foy saw It. "Aye, let them go?ret

know where loyalty lay, as they know

A slow contempt went over that
rugged old face. The baron hud sninll

more too heartily to bandy tnlk with
