THURSDAY, OCT. 6, 1887. 1
The Farmer's State Convention t
will meet in Columbia on Tuesday s
1st day of December, and not on the a
Sd, as stated by us last week.
Our Laurens contemporaries are t
still quarreling and calling each other c
names. The election is over and the
people have settled the matter at the
ballot box and what is the use of
lussing over it now. We suggest t
that they drop the discussion in-their
columns and "fight it out."
What would some of our young
men think of being employed as win
dow gazers? We saw it stated the t
other day that some young men in
Philadelphia earn a living in this
way. By standing and gazing into
the shop windows they would attract
a crowd, and in this way act as an
advertisement for the shop keeper,
and for this purpose were regultrly
employed. This comes as near mak
ing machines out of men as the man f
who stood, at the railway crossing
simply to direct the passengers re- s
peating the same words from morn
ing until night from year to year. t
Yet we suppose these men in their
way are performing the duties of life, e
and doing well what they undertake, l
and are faithfully carrying out the
ends for which they were created.
There are many human machines; in
fact, we are all more or aess nothing
but machines. Some performing their
functions in one way and some in an. i
other. But we-do not think we would
like to be a window gazing machine. I
We would prefer to be the man at the
station directing the passers by in
the right way.
-The Farmer's Conventton on Mon
day passed a resolution instructing
the delegates to work energetically~
for the establishmentof an Agricul-1
tural College separate and distinct
fromi the South Carolina University.
*This means that they want an ex- 1
penditure of about $30~0,000 to start
their college with, and then an ap
propriation ev&y fear of from $30,
000 to $40,000 to keep it-going. The
Convention was composed of intelli-r
; gent and progressive farmers. They,s
of course, know what Ohey are doing.
This is an important matter and<
should be calmily and seriously con
sidered. Will thc expenditure of .
this large sum of money be wisely
invested in as A'gricultural College ? I
Will the farmei-s reap the benefit in
proportion to the expenditure ? We
for retrenchment and reform. Some.
times it is economy to spend money. I
~9 We.want in every way to see the far
mer prosper. for his success is our
success, and we do not want to see
the masses led-by any "oligarchy" in
I: this Agrienlharal College business.
Let the costs be considered along
with the benefits. If it is thought a
S jedicious investment, let the college
be established. We have not yet I
- been able to see it in that light. 1

He has had his sentence commuted by the a

On the morning of the 26th of last April ei
his dead body, riddled with buckshot,was o

turned inside out, showing that robbery e
was the motive of the murder. COesar was -y
arrested upon suspicion, and the evidence b
upon which he was convicted was entirely a
circumstantial. He persistently protested t<

that thechain of evidence was by no a

ACCIDENT, NOr SUICIDE.
'he Death of O. B. White, or H. P.
Tarrant, in Texas.
News and Courier.
It has been settled beyond any rea
unable doubt that 0. B. White, an ac- F
ount of whose alleged sui:ide in Texas d
as been published, was none other a
ban H. P. Tarrant, who formerly lived
this city. Photographs of Tarrant
ere sent to Galveston and the body of 0
he deceased was by their use identitied. 14
'he Galveston News of recent date say-: C
"The inquest upon the body of O. B. n
Vhite was resumed yesterday by Justice n
pann, and several more witnesses ex
mined. C. W. Davis stated that he a
aw White last on -the evening of Sep- i
mwber 6. He knew nothing as to the e
ause of White's death, but under no c
ircumstances believed it was suicide. i,
%'hite's general demeanor when last u
een was that of one in good humor. a
Vitness was of the opinion that White's h
teath was caused by some affection of
he heart, as deceased was often seen to c
e suffering from some acute pain that a
rould cause him to gasp and hold his i
ide. C. C. Alderton was' called upon a
ad corroborated the above substantial- e
y. Dr. C. L. Gwyn testified that he I
ad attended White from the 23d to the i,
6th of August for muscular rheumatism i
f the chest. The pain of White was in
ense, and witness prescribed dydrate of
hloral, but after giving White a dose or t
wo witness stopped owing to the effect
t had upon the heart. Witness sup- t
iosed that the disease returned,and that ,
he pain being severe he took a full dose i,
if the chloral, which caused his death
ry heart failure. Witness did not think
>f a case of suicide, but one of accidental u
leath from the untoward effect of a usu
ily safe medicine self-administered.
rustice Spann rendered a verdict to the
,fect that the deceased, a druggist by
rofession, a native of Charleston, S. C.,
ged about 39 years, came to his death i,
>n the 6th of September, and from the t
estimony adduced believed the same to v

The News From Stanley.
ST. PAUL DELANDA, October 2.
Lecording to the last news received at j
Soma, from the upper Congo, Stanley g
ras pushing forward, and the only dif- v
iculties he met with were natural ob- o
tacles of the country. a
About July 25th the exp-dition had a
?scended the Aruwhimi to the elevated I
ountry belonging to the Mabodi dis- c
rict. The river becoming too narrow, o
hey left the rafts, and the men for sev- I
ral days had to carry a double burden I
f provisions. The steel whale boat was r
arried past the narrows, and again
aunched. Stanley calculated that,
tpon arriving at the summit of the table
ands, giving shape to the basin of the
kruwhimi, the expedition would halt
wo days for rest, and would establish
amp there to be garrisoned by twenty r
nen with a European officer. The dis- e
ricts traversed were tranquil, and little
lificulty was experienced in obtaining 1
rovisions from the natives. The pro- 8
ress of the expedition averaged twenty
dometers daily. ' Tippoo Tib, in his
ast message, wrote that he was still at ?
is post, at Stanley Falls, awaiting rein- b
oreements. He had gained the good
will of several neighboring chiefs. s
)wing to the disturbed state of the l
ountry Tippoo Tibi could not, as he v
had agreed to, organize a revictual:ng a
ravan to dispatch direct to Albert t
'ianza, but he intended to do so as soon ~
s possible. Disquiet continued between '
tanley Falls and the confluence of the a
truwimi and the Congo, and many
rillages had been pillaged. It is be- '
ieved that the agarrison which Stanley ~

nterfere to maintain order in the neigh- 3

Germany Practically Annexes the Sam
oan Islands and Seizes and Exiles
SAN FRANcrSCO, Oct. 1.-Alvices l
from New Zealand received by the si
steamer which arrive'] to-day are to the o
effect that Germany his practically an- u
nexed the S.tmnan Islands. Thirteen a
hundred stldier, and marines have been c
landed at Apia by the four German men- d
of war, and light ing was momentarily q
expected when the steamer sailed on
September 12. The immediate provo- fi
cation which had led to the action of the S
Gerians was owing to a free tight be- 1
tween% natives an! German residents,
growing out of the celebration of the I
birthday of the Emperor of Germany. p
It is alleged by the New Z'"aland papers o
that the Germans were drunk and s
handled some of the natives roughly.
The German commodore sent a dendtni
for $12,000 as damages for the injury
done the Germans, $1,000 being included
as a personal tine upon King Mali.ton.
The damages were explained to he on
account of injuries to German planta
tions and robberies by natives. King
yMalietoa protested and asked for time to I
consider, but next day the Germans I
landed and Commodore Ititisullt is=ued ti
a proclamation in the name of ihe Em- t,
peror of Germany declaring war against $
Chief Malietoa, and recognizing Tama- S
sese as King of Samoa. The American C
and British colonists at once sought the 3
protection of their respective fi gs and a
joint circular, signed by Tharold M. b
Sewell, Consul General of the United $
States, and W. H. Wilson, British Pro- I
Consul. was i.-ueddenying the authority v
of the Germans to set tip a king in place n
of Malieota; declaring that their re=pee- 4
tive governments had never recognized t
the Tamasese, but still con4dered Mal- a
ietoa as king. The circular closed with tl
an appeal to the people of Samoa to sub
mit quietly, and regaidless of provoca
tion to await the result of the pending
deliberations without resorting to war
like resistance. The feeling, however, t
was such that open howtilities was only t
a question of time t'r. the time the last
vessel departed. 3laiietoa was said to be
collecting his followers to give the Ger
mans battle. The Samoans, however,
were very pgorly armed and could make
no serious show against the invaders.
- The New Zealand newspapers comment
- bitterly against the Germans, declaring
t their action to be practically annexation,
despite the understanding bet ween the
United States and Great Britain.
