THHURSDAY, JULY 21, 1887.
We learn irom the O1ser-er, and
iom the Hon. S. Pope himself, that
he will go o:t of politics, and will,
under no considerations, be a candi
date for office next year, but expects
to devote his whole attention to the
practice of his profession. Dr. Pope
has been a member of the Legisla

and Laa?ens Railroad, in leaving
Colombia, crossed the river so near
the mouth of Saluda and followed
along the barks of the river so far?
We thought one of the avowed ob
jects of this road, and the great ar
gument in favor of it, was to get off
from the river and follow the ridge
between the two river-s. And then
by following up the Saluda they
flank one of he richest sections of
Lexington. To be sure, by follow
ing up the river. even, the road is
not far ::om this section. But it
seems to us it would have been bet
ter to strike the ridge at the veiy
earliest plac possible. Over in the
Fork, about six miles :om Columbia,
would have been a good place for a
nice little town, if the road had got
ten. away Ilom the river.
During the early pai of the pr s
ent week we had the pleasure of a
vis.t to Columbia, and while there
went over in the Lexington Fork.
Tb crops from here to Columbia are
looking well. but the Brest cotton we
have seen this year is over in this
Lexington Fork. This is a fine coun
try any way and the Huffman's,
Nynamakers, YounQginers, Leitz
sevs and Haltiwangers always have
good crops, but this year they are
especially fine. They were needing
rain when we were there, but this
they got on Tuesday. The heat in
Columbia was yeiy~ severe. On

We publish elsewhere a commauni
cation from '-Dutch Fork" in reply
to the card of Capt. Sligh, of the
penitentirry, in regard to working on
Sundar. We would not have more
to say of this matter at this time,
but some time since we noticed an
item in the Regis-er to the effect that
the statement made by us in regard
to the violation of the Sabbath by
working the convicts had been in
vestigated by the Board of Directors,
and found by them to have no found
ation in fact Possibly if their in
vestigation had been extended a little
farther they could have found out
the facts in the case. The statement
never would have been made by us,
if we had not been assured by the
gentleman who gave us the informa
tion that the facts were as we stated
them, and had we not had confidence in
the truthfulness of our informant.
The card of "Dutch Fork" is written
from the scene of action, and in it
will be found an endorsement of the
facts as we stated them.
We have no personal feelings in
this matter whatever. We only
think it is wrong to violate the moral
and civil law by working on Sunday
and so stated.
The penitentiary is a State institu

OUR BRANCH OF THE THREE
The Engineers Inspecting the Route
Between Augusta and Newberry.
Special to the Atlanta Constitution.
AUGUSTA, Ga., July 17.-The Three
"'C's" will build the Georgia and Caro
lina Midland to Augusta. This is what
the chief engineer and principal
attorney b"th say, or what they said
to one of the two engineers sent to
Augusta to go over the route from here
to Newberry, lowering the grade for
standard gauge purposes and changing
the route in one or two sectiohs between
Augusta and Edgelield.
The engineers have arrived and start
out over the line Tuesday. They are

company. The engineers will complete
their woik on the line between Augusta
and Newberry by the time that an ex
tension is located in the direction of
Yorkville and Gaffuey City. Both places
want the road, and it will be built
straight to Augusta and connect, when
completed, at this point with Charleston,
over the South Carolina railroad.
Freaks of Lightning.
A son of E. I. Harris, of Good Hope,
Ill., while walking in a thunder storm,
saw a blinding flash of lightning, and
the next instant found that the brass
ferule at the tip of his umbrella had been
burned away. He was not injured.
Lightning struck Miss Adeline Slaton,
of Augusta, Ga., and deprived her of
her voice, but did not seriously injure
her. Two red spots on her left cheek
showed where the electricity entered.
Since she was struck Miss Slaton has
not been able to utter a word.
A party o' young people from West
Liberty, Ia., went tishing recently, and,
a rain storm coming up, they sought
s-helter under a large tree. The young
women sat in a wagon from which the
horses had been unhitched. Some of
the young men, by way of a joke, sud
denly seized the wagon and dragged it
out into the rain. They had scarcely
left the shelter of the boughs when the
tree was struck by lightning and a large
part of it reduced to splinters. The two
horses were killed, and several of the
young men were stunned.
Lightning struck the chimney of Wil
lis Cruslman's house, at Soeth ';larks
ville, Tenn.. passed down into the bed
room and shocked Willis and his wife,
who were.sleeping there, killed a dog
which lay at the foot of the bed, darted
out through the kitchen into the hen
roost and completed its work by killing
seven chickens. The chickens were
picked entirely clean of feathers, the
skin being left smooth and white.
Lightning struck Charlie Spencer, a
little Milwaukee boy who was fishing in
the lake from the Government break
water and killed him instantly. The
electricity entered his breast and passed
down his left leg and out through the
shoe on his left foot, leaving a faint line
s if traced by a blue-pencil to mark its
course. .The suit of clothes he wore was
ut clean in two, that on his left side
being stripped off his body.
James Smith, of Marin, Ind., took
refuge from a heavy storm in his barn.
He was standing between two horses
and three pigs, when a blinding fiash
ame and all the animals dropped dead.
Smith was entirely unharmed, and there
was no indication that the building had
been struck by lightning.
Ex-Prime Minis:er Gibson.
Hariwell (Ga.) Sun.
The Hawaiian monarchy, of which
Eapiolani, who is visiting the United
States, was queen, has been practically
:verthrown by a popular uprising of the
people. The prime minister of the king
dom, who is an American named Gibson,
was born and reared in AndersonCounty,
S. C. We saw him while on a visit to
the city of Anderson, probably fifteen
or twenty years ago. He was accom
panied by his daughter, who was said to
be a princess. Gibson was the Bismarck
of the Sandwich Islands. This man
Walter Gibson, as he was known here
got his start by teaching an old field
school in Hart County. He lived in a
one-room cabin at the old "Burnt Store
Forks" of the road on A. J. McMullan's
place. While there he added to the
comfort of his family by building a
kitchen with a dirt floor. Afterwards
e sold goods, carrying only a very
small stock. He was a man of educa
tion and refinement, with a gift of gab.
He interested his neighbors with stories
of his travels and adventures; but they
could not swallow all of his yarns. Lit
tle did his Hart County auditors think
that their garrulous Munchausen would
ever become prime minister, high exe
utioner, et cetera, of the Hawaiian
After the dleath of his first wife (we
presume he has another), and which is
said to have been from cold contracted
on the dirt floor of the kitchen, Gibson
left this country, and was not heard of
until he turned up as prime minister at
Honolulu. It is said that he managed
the affairs of the government to the very
best advantage for W alter Gibson, and
as he grew great he grew rich. A cor
responding growth in poverty upon the
part of Kalakaua's subjects is said to be
the prime cause of the revolt.
Murder of a MIissionary.
SAN FRANCIsco, July 18.--Informa
tion arrived to-day from Onulaska that
Bishop Seghers, a Catholic Missionary,
was murdered by his companion one
night in November last. The scene of
the traged y was on the bnsof the
Yokone River, about five hundred miles
from its mouth, and fully sixty miles
from any habitation.
The murderer is Frank Fuller, a
young man from Port]and, Oregon, who
accompanied the Bishop as companion
and servant. He gave himself up. No
cause for the deed is given. The
Bishop was formerly of Baltimore, Md.,
and prior co being named as Bishop of
Alaska was Archbishop of Oregon and
Washington Territory. He left for
Alaska last summer to perform mission
ary work among the Indians, but was
allowed by the Papal See to retain his
honorary title as Archbishop.
A Cool Ian.
Dr. J. F. Eves, of Welborn, Texas,
is the coolest man on record so far
during the hot wave. The other day he
was making a prohibition speech in
answer to a fellow-citizen who had
just preceded him. He was very
severe on his opponent and that
worthy took up his rifle, deliberately
aimed at the doctor, and fired. The
ball penetrated a tree close to the
speaker's head. Dr. Eves continued
his speech, remarking, by way of
parenthesis, "Now you see, gentle
men, how unsteady are the nerves
of hese anti-nrohibitionisf-s."

JAKE SHAR"S SENTENCE.
The Great Eriber Se.t ' S-n-Sing for For:.
NEw XoraK. July 1-4. Jacob Sharp
slept bettor last night than for some
nights previous, but it seemed to be
the sleep of utter exhaustion and he
seemed to be but little rereshed by
it when he arose at 9 o'clock this
morning. His wife sat by his bedside
through the night fanning him while
he was asleep and giving him cool
ing drinks when he awoke at inter
vals. After he arose from bed she
assisted him to dress for his second
trip to the Cotut of Over and Ter
miner, to receive sentence.
Mr.'Sharp and the rest of his f am
ilv, like the prisoner himself, were
silent. The excitement was becom
ing quite feverish, when a sudden
hush came over the room as three
raps on the door announced the en
trance of Judge Barrett at exactly
The clock was indicating exactly
the hour of 12 when Sharp was al
most carrie3 into the Court-room.
His suffering wife and son-in-law
were cl)se behind him. and deep.
lines of weariness and sorrow over
spread their faces as they seated
themselves beside the convicted inrmi
and fanned his livid face without
bringing anything like a semblance
of color back to it.
Mr. Martin, of the' defense, moved
for a new trial, but Judge Barrett,
denied the motion. I
District Attorney Ma: ine then
stood up to move the' Court to sen
tence the prisoner. Hie st-ted that he
considered it his duty to ask the
Court to app)oint physicians to look
into the prisoner's condition of
health and read some certificates
from Drs. Allen. Hamilton and Jane
way to the effect that the prisoner's
health was very bad and that he was
suffering from diabetes, inflammation
of the kidneys and organic disease
of the heart, which were of serions
import to a man of his years. He
then read Dr. Hamilton's rep)ort on
the condition of Sing Sing and the
arrangements for the care of the
sick, which. he said, were of the
most excellent character all around.
Mr. Mitchell then stood up to
make a last appeal for the defence.
He said he did not wish to delay the
Court, but would ask the Judge to
temp)er justice with mercy. Judge
Barrett then proceeded to deliver
He said that he had never per
formed so delicate a task in his whole
professional career. He had received
many letters from many people
pleading mercy and otherwise, but
the Court was not appointed to be
merciful any more than was dicta
ted by the laws of justice. A judge
is appointed to award the penalty in
accordance to - the offence when all
the circumstances connected with
the commission of the offence have
been duly weighed and considered.
The defendant here, in his appeals
for mercy, can give nothing as a
plea fo lmnyhtage and sick
ness. On the merits of the case he
certainly is entitled to none. It is ab
surd to state that he was not guilty
of giving a bribe, as he was unmis
takably the leader of the whole af
fair. 'We have not herein, as in the
case of the aldermen, any attempt to
prove the defendant's good charac
ter. The crime itself was an enor
mous one. The raising of half a
million of dollars to.corrupt half the
Legislature. Judge Barrett re
viewed the corrupt action of the do
fendant in forming a bogus comp)any1
to contract with the Seventh Avenue
Railway, of which he was a director,
and alluded to the dlefendanit's so
curing a mtillion dollars (of profit and
the sheer larceny for which he could
have beeni indicted just as well as for
bribery. What is there to excite
pity or m;:rcy except the age anid ill
health of the p)risonler and the mourn
ing condition of his family ? With
over one million dollars in bis pocket
he clamors for mercy without offer
ing to pay back a penny of the mo
nev stolen, so that should he die in
prison his family has a vast fonune
to fall back upon.
At this Mrs. Sharp buried her face
in her handkerchief and wept silent
ly, while the prisoner himself didanot
lift his face from the table.
The Legislature, continues Judge
Barrett, does nout allow us to go be
low the mininmum penalty in such a
grave offence as the present is. All I
cannot be satisfiedl-those who clam
or for the prisoner's receiving the
full p)enalty of the law and those
calling for a reprimand. All things j
have been considered, and the judg
ment of this Court is that the pris
oner be confined for four years at
hard labor and that he pay a fine of
