Tho Soldier-Bishop, Ellison' Capers',
is tho title of a hook Just off the press
of the Neale Publishing Company, Ne\V
York. It is u biography of tho late
Bishpp Ellison Capers, compiled by
his son, Rev. Walter It. Capers, Pros
Idont of Columbia Institute. Columbia,
Tennessee, The volume is handsome
ly bound fin purple, with gold and red
trimmings, and printed on a durable
paper, making a very attractive hook (
mechanically, well In keeping .with,
the style of the contents and the sub-1
ject treated. Hearing Witness to the
pleasure which the autobiography of
his father gave him. Bishop Capers,
while a minister In Columbia,' began
a "Journal*', of his own life, for the
bent hi of his own children. This
"Journal" is largely made use of und
lending to this book an accuracy not
ordinarily attained in works of this
kind. The full life history of the sol
dier and churchman is given, begin
ning ill his early childhood, when ho !
was "not nolod for his studious habits"
continuing through the successive
steps as a professor at ilie Arsenal, as
a gallant soldier in many conflicts dur
ing the Sixties and afterwards as a
minister and then bishop. The hook
makes an interesting portrayal of the
life of one of the state's host loved
men and doubtless it will be received
and eagerly read in many homes and
then placed on the shelves as a refer
ence for future generations.

It is reasonable to attribute to those
in authority a. high order of intelli
gence and virtue. Yet these are en
titled to some allowance or excuse for
licensing these low carnivals when
they have had no experience with them
Hut after they have orp e had one in
their midst and have had an oppor
tunity to sei> what any ordinary mind
could not fail to see, that they are low
vicious and without a redeeming fea
ture, and only calculated to debauch
and demoralize the young, they no
longer have an excuse.
The moral welfare of a community
should be hold to be of far more value
than a little paltry license derived
from those nuisances, that take away
tho hard earned money of many a poor
fellow, and what is Immeasurably
worse, spread vice, disease and crime.
We don't mind a decent circus, or
any Innocent amusement or entertain
ment but may the Tx>rd deliver us
from any more carnivals.
Self respect, together with a due
regard for the morals of a community
to say nothing of our obligation to
tho church and to sacred things should
impel thinking men ?nd women to re
fuse to go about a carnival or In any
way to lend thfira encouragement. And
then the weaker classes ought to he
protected. No town should license one
any more than It would a gabllng (1 n
or liquor or beer saloon.

Tons and Charleston.
The IntCWiew given by Francis .1.
Pons to the Cincinnati Enquirer and
reproduced in The News and Courier
yesterday ought to be humiliating and
seriously disturbing to every Charles
Ionian who loves bis city and has its
welfare at heart. Probably Mr. Pons
when he visits Charleston ;igain, as
it is staled that he will do soon, will
deny the authenticity of the remarks
attributed to him. We take it they
were not Intended for the edification
of the people of this city, where no
publicity is desired at this time for
Mr. Pons' racing plans, whatever they
may be; hut the interview ringt; true
and, alas that if it should be BO, the
worst of it Is the reputation which Mr.
Pons ascribes to Charleston is that
which it enjoys generaly among the
members of the fraternity of which ho
is a shining light.
How much longer is .his state of
things to continue? Is not the com
munity in general and the business
community in particular awakening to
the realization that a city of less than
thirty thousand white people cannot
support the vices of a great metropolis
and that their toleration, nay, their
patronage, breeds an atmosphere sti
fling to healthy development? Surely it
Is not possible that citizens of Charles
ton will feel no sense of outrage that
a man like Pons can continue to give
out interviews in various parts of the
country in which lie talks with calm
assurance of being allowed to conduct
a racing meet here in open defiance of
the law? Put there can be no protec
tion against and no relief from such
experiences while conditions in Char
leston remain as they now are.?News
