to VIOLATIG THE SABBATH.
)0, We have reliable information to
ey the effect that the authorities at the
et- State Penitentiary are constantly
violating the Sabbath by requiring
as the convicts to do various kinds of
at work on this day. We are told that
by- they use it as the day to haul the
he supplies from Columbia up to the
farm on Broad river in Lexington
th County, and after taking the boat up
o- for this purpose they load it with
ng wood and haul wood back to Colum
bia, and in other ways require work
vn of the convicts on th- Sabbath. We
ith also are informed that the people of
1is the Fork in Lexingion County are.
,a- very mnch opposed to this thing, as
na it is inclined to demoralize the young
es. people of their section. The State
on pays a chaplain to preach to the con
on victs on the Sabbath, and at the same
na time they are required to violate one
01 of the commandments, and not only
that, but the Statute law of the State
by doing manual labor on this day.
.ry They are sent- there for violation of
of law, and yet they are made to violate
is. the law every Sunday. We think it
in- wrong as a matter of policy and of
of law, and in addition it is wrong mo
be rally. -The Creator in his wisdom
tle designed that man should have one
m- day in seven as a day of rest,
m- and we do not think that the
e- prisoners of a great State should be
made to violate this law. Then it is
a violation of the Statute law of
ow South Carolina to work on Sunday,
re- except as an act of charity or abso
th- lute necessity. We do not think it
e. can be i constant necessity with the
of Penitentiary authorities to work on
a the Sabbath.
ve We hope this matter will be looked
at into, and if our information is cor
er- rect, that a stop will be put to this
ll violation of the Sabbath.
ne These observations might find ap
of, plication nearer home.
Lte On last Sunday the Newberry Cot
ton Mills had a force of hands at
work on Scott's Creek digging a well
all day long, and some of their men
mhave been working more or less all
m-day Sunday for some time past.
, It is possible this work on Sunday
he here is a case of necessity. It may
1s be that the ox is in the ditch and
or, should be taken out and the only
el- tinie to do it is Sunday. We do not
ar pretend to give the explanation, we
' only state the fact.
We have only this to say, that if
men in authority, and men who wield
vand mould public opinion, encourage,
vesanction and require this violation of
e the Sabbath by those who labor for
nd them, we had as well repeal our laws
against it, and stop preaching from
our pulpits the observance of it,

THE WORKC OF DEMONS.
Particulars of the Fire at Walhalla. ! A
Special to Atlanta Constitution.
WESTMINISTER, S. C., June 24.
The incendiary fire which was report- I re
ed from Walhalla, S. C., in the dis- T<
patches seems to have been the ar
crowning act in a series of diabolical th
outrages which have been perpetrated in
against the good people of that quiet T;
village for the past several years. th
The people of Walhalla and of West- sa
Union also, which is really a part ty
of the first named town, though under we
a separate incorporation, have been dc
annoyed from time to time by the post- th
ing upon the premises of the lead- at
ing citizens of anonymous notices, CI
containing scurrillous and obscene pc
language reflecting upon the good es
name of the inmates of different re
households. These occasional notices w
had been treated with indifference or wl
contempt until last Friday the 17th, Cc
when their authors became so bold in of
their devilish designs of defaming the
character of virtuous people that 31
matters reached a crisis. 3
During the night previous, a num- ca
ber of anonymous notices, in the fri
ame handwriting as all former ones, st:
were posted in several public pIeces at
in Walhalla and West Union. These Jc
notices contained the names of the St
wives and daughthers of many of the th
purest and best families of the two re
towns, and were so full of obscenity cc
and vulgarity as to cause the vilest TI
blackguard to blush with shame. M
Such insults had now become too m,
numerous and too public to be borne, n
and the pe.ple. aroused with indigna- oe
tion, resolved to stop them. Suspi
cion had already marked out the j
guilty ones, and the discovery of a
pocket book near where one of the
notices was posted, led to the issuing Ti
of warrants for L. K. Hunter, Walter
Hodges and- Saddler, all of West
Union. A number of others were
suspected, some of them of highly
respectable family connection. A
little village was perhaps never so in
thoroughly aroused with indignation
as was Walhalla and West Union. s
The pent up wrath of a long suffering o
people had burst forth in the wildest pE
fury. Th-us stood matters on Mon
day night, when the people retired to
rest, little dreaming that to the un
hallowed defamation of their charac- gr
ters would be added an effort to burn G
up their property. Such was the se
case, however, as was reported in the A
Constitution. The loss by the fire is
now known to be more serious than is
was first believed. In addition to tr
the entire outfit of the Keowee Courier ta
office, the law libraries of Thompson ta
& Jaynes and Keith & Verner were a cc
complete loss. Among these were
many valuable law books difficult to tb
be replaced at any cost. John S. bi
Verner, of the firm of Keith & Verner, le
was clerk of the board of county T
commissioners and with his office
were destroyed nearly all the county g
records. Many important papers w
pertaining to unsettled estates, which te
are usually kept in the county clerk's
safe, were in the different law offices
undergoing preparations for court, bi
which convenes at Walhalla next di
The destruction of these will cause
much trouble. The cQurthouse square
with its pleasant grove and comforta- fc
ble offices, now presents a forbidding g,
appearance with its charred ruins it
and blackened shade trees. Only bi
two buildingrs remain, the courthouse O
and law office of Judge Norton & la
Hunter, Saddler and Hocdges are bi
in jail on the charge of postinig the ai
notices, but no direct evidence to con- p
vict them with the burning has yet m
been developed. The prisoners or s
their friends telegraphed yesterday to
Colonel Geo. Johnstone, a lawyer of
Newberry, to come to their assistance. to
Colonel Johnstone arrived in the fc
evening and called on the prisoners fe
at the jail, and informed them that if ni
after investigating the case be found i
reasonable evidence of their guilt, be ls
should leave them to their fate. sI
ANOTHER ARREsT-A PARSON's SON a
IN THlE TOILS.h
Special to News and Courier.
WVALHIALLA, June S2---Alonzo r
Morgan, a laborer in the WValhalla is
depot and a son of the Rev. Frank
Morgan, was arrested and lodged in
jail Saturday night charged with
complicity in the libel case. This T
makes four parties now in jail charged
with this outrageous offense. The
preliminary hearing will be held the fr
5th day of July next.t
We hav-e received information from
several directi,ons that the white people mn
in parts of Greenville and Spartanburg ,
counties are making preparations, min
quietnesss indicating a deadly purpose, tt
for a general raid against the co-opera- ti
tive workers established in this section s
by Hoover. 1
There is danger in this movement of
the whites--far more danger than there t
is in any possible organization of the nie- r
groes. There is danger for the peace and
good order we have established at so
much cost, danger to the prosperity just
coming to us, danger to all our interests
and to the well earned reputation of this
section for respect for the law.
Before there is any rash work let the of
white people remember that they have cc
all the lawv and government in their ta
hands and all the power. There is no ta
excuse or possible justitication for vio- m,
lence while the civil authoritics are re
willing and able to enforce all the laws. th
While the colored people keep inside af
the law they hurt nobody and nothing, tl:
and are as much entitled to the law's pt
protection as any body. inl
The white men owe it to their own m
manhood to be as honest and merciful tc
as they are brave. .C
Let the coolest and wisest heads in ti
Greenville and Spartanburg take the 0]
guidance of the whole matter and see ra
that nothing is done rashly or outside ti
the law. We have just recovered from in
the demoralization of radical rule and B
the revolution of 1876; let us not go any 01
step backward, but continue our pro- b<
gress toward perfect peace, prosperity, m
and the reign of Christianity.
As we understand the co-operative
workers, any white man can become a -
member on payment of his fifty-five "I
cents. Ir, will be a good plan, perhaps
for a -w trustworthy white men ~
join eae . odge in the county; en ye
they can know just what is being dohue B<
and stop the wild rumors now bemy~ 'X
spread through the country, which may
stir so much mischief.

The following, according to the
Deutsche Bleres-Zeitungq, is the exact
peace strength of the German army as
established by the law of March 11, -
1887: Nineteen thousand two hun

assistants, 19,270 bandsmen--5,516 non- lui
commissioned officers and 13,7534 pri- to
vates-378,20 Gecfreite (corresponding w
to acting corporals) and privates, :3,704
hospital assistants and 10,850 work
men; total 468,409. This represent sandr

non-commissioned oflieris, .57 paymas

number of horses is 84,077, an increase
of 2,288. -
It isfiiffieult to estimate with accu
racy the full extent of the financial
loss resulting from the strike which -
the Chicago bricklayers have dleclared

can be closely estimated, and Chicago
merchants can estimate the amount of
trade which has been sacrificed. Aside
from this, miners are idle in Pen nsyl

in Michigan and Wisconsin; thousands
of men are thrown out of wvorki m
stone quarries adjacent to this city; '
the pressed brick trade is affected all
over the United States; thousands of
dollars have been lost to railroad com
