This pension business is growing to
be a bigger thing than our legislators e
seem to have anticipated. There can
be no doubt that in sonme cases the pen-~
sion law will work good andl relieve r,
some who are really dleserving and need(
assistance, but we suspect there are
some who apply who do not really need
this assistance fronm the government.
But since the matter has been under
taken by the government the appropria
tion will have to be made large enough
to meet the requirements, it will not -
do to give to sonme and not to others r
who are equally deserving.t
There will be little trouble about the
surplus in the State Treasury now.i
The surplus in the treasury of the t
United States sem to be a perplexing aI
question for our statesmen. Numerous I
ills and schemes are brought forward2
miaking big appropriations which woulda
never be thought of if it were not for $
this big surplus. There has beeni a
deadlock in thme House on the quest ion
of refunding the direct tax. The friends
of tariff reduction o~pose it on the t
ground that it will be impossible to se
cure any tariffreduction if the bill pass
es.:And then if the direct tax is refund- s
--~4the cotton tax also should be refund
ed andl most of the cottoni tax mmoneyv
would conie to the South.
The New~ York Herald objects to
refunding these taxes oni the ground
that the money will go to the States
and will not put any in the pockets of I
the poor~ men. The Herald thinks thei~
whole business of refunding taxes is
erudIe ando iionsensical. and inasmuch L
as ('ongress seems determined to divide
the surplus it "mught to be done in a
popualar and1( p)roper way," and the t
Herald suggests as the~ most popular
way the ad4.Odtioni of the plan of the

The c'hairmnan of the ('ommnittee on

The Board of Medical Examiners, t

Sub-section 4 of Section 919 of the

I'his applies to non-residents and does t
zot apply to one who has gone beyond

A GR'EAT ENGINEERING FEAT.
sucve ful IRemnoval of a Huge Building
Driving Locomotives Tandem.
One of the most remarkable feasts in
engineering is the removal, now in
progress, of the Brighton Beach Hotel,
on Coney Island. For some years past
the sea had been steadily encroaching
on the land in front of the hotel until
by the heavy storms last fall the shore
was so entirely eaten away that the
piles on which the hotel was built were
exp osed, and doubt wa: expressed as to
whether the huge building would sur
vive the winter. How to secure it from
wreck, if that were possible, and to
move it bodily inland a distance of five
hundred feet from its present site was
the prollen to be solved. A contractor
was found who, for the sum of twenty
thousand dollars, undertook the work
of removal. The building is four hun
dred and sixty feet long, with an aver
age depth of one hundred and seventy
feet. Its estimated weight is five thous
and tons, or ten millions of pounds, If
it had been a compact mass, covering a
comparatively small area, thework of re
inoval, with the engineering appliances
of the day, would have been an ordi
nary undertaking; but spread as it was
over a surface of four hundred and sixty
feet, cut up in the interior into a multi
tude of compartments, and rising to
the height of three and a half stories,
exclusive of five towers, in which the
building is carried a story higher, the
difficulties of moving it intact to the
new site on which it is to stand will be
readily coniprehended. The first thing
that was done preparatory to removal
was to raise the entire structure in the
air by a series of jackscrews, and when
a sufficient height was attained to lay
beieath the building twenty-four rail
road traicks, having on theni one hun
drl and twelve pl:atfori ears. When
this was done the jackscrews were set to
work again at lowering the building
until it rested on the flat surfaces of the
ears. This having been successfully ac
coiplislied, the question then arose as
to the way in which the building could
be moved to its new site with perfect
regularity of motion and evenness in
all its parts. The plan adopted was to
place six locomotives ninety feet apart
on the rails connecting outside with
the track under the building, in two
sets of three each. From these two sets
of locomotives, placed in front of each
other, and each set carrying one-half of
the hotel, two radiating lines of cable,
spread out in the form of a fat, were
carried to every other platform car
bearing the building, and returned
thence to iimiense pulley blocks an
chored to the rails in the open and
weighted down. The work of the loco
motives was not to draw the twenty
four ears bearing the hotel, as it were,
bodily, but to bring all their strain
upon the blocks and tackles which
were, so to speak, the moving power. It
is obvious that spread out as these ca
bles were in the form of a fan, they
were of uneven length, and the doubt
expressed by engineers who were on
the ground watching the operations
was as to the effect of the strain of the
pull on ropes of different lengths. It
is plain, it was said, that a rope run
ing directly from the centre of the
building to the locomotives iiust be un
der less tendency to stretch than one
running fron a remote corner. An un
eqlual stretching of the ropes would in
evitably tend to pull the middle of the
hotel faster than the ends, and thus
bring danger of a collapse. This dan
ger was obviated b)y short hauls and
shifting the tackle. There was also
danger thmat the pull of the locomotives
would not be simultaneous, or that the
ears bearing the main towers would
break dowvn from over-weight, but
nothinig of the kind occurred onl Tues
day. The entire building was moved
back steadlily, and on an even line, one
hundred and fourteen feet without
starting a fastening, bulging a corner
or losing a piece of plastering, and if
the rest of the journey to the rear be as
successful it will be another triumph
of A merican engineering.

their dliplo)mas were found correct, onl
payment of the proper fee, $5. This,
hoever, he so far modified as to say the
Board couldi require an examination in
anyu ease where it was absolutely satis

UNION, S. C., April 10.-On Saturday
last a little negro boy named Laney
Walker, about nine years old, stabbed
and killed a negro girl named Libby
Ashe, about twelve years old, on one of
A. A. Sarratt's places in the upper part
of the county. The little girl was with
a negro woman at a spring washing
clothes, when Laney came about, whit
tling on a stick with a pocket knife.
They got into a dispute, and after ex
changing a few words, threw rocks at
each other, then clinched and scuffled
a little while, when the girl broke loose
and ran over a hill. The boy ran after
her, and with one blow of his knife
killed her. The stroke was given in
front, and ranging downwards, laid
open her body. The youthful murderer
is now in jail.
The Liability of Trustees to Road and
[Greenville News, April 11.]
A disagreement having arisen be
tween the County Commissioners and
the School Commissioner as to the
liability of school trustees to road and
jury duty, the question was carried be
fore Judge Norton on Monday, on the
application of James T. Campbell to be
excused from jury service on theground
that he was a trustee. The County
Board had held that the trustees were
not exempted by the law, and the
School Commissioner had held that
Commissioner Mayfield argued the
question before the Judge, who sus
tained his decision, deciding that school
trustees are excnipted from both road
and jury duty.

The publishers of the Directory assert
that the impression that when the pro

state what has been his exact circula

is an erroneous one: and they conspic

COLMBIA, S. C., April 6.-The re
cent legislature authorized the issue of
four hundred thousand dollar four and a
half per cent bonds, to take the place
of the six per cent bonds, the terms of
which expires this year. The holders
of the old bonds were allowed until to
day to exchange for new bonds. Eigh
ty-eiht thousand dollars of six per

They will be advertised in this State,
New York and London. The state
treasurer intimates that they will con
mand a premium of six per cent within
three years. The financial condition of

Bialue'si Return from Europe.
It is said Mr. Blaine proposes sailing
for home on June 16, three day before

It is hinted that this is for the purpose
of shutting offall communication with

friends will get back to New York in
time to give hinm such a reception as
will be unprecedented, and manufac

A New Textile.
[Fromn the News and Courier.]
Mr. Michael Werts, of Silver Street,
Newberry County, having discovered
that the fibre of the ordinary pea vine
possessed unusual strength, sent a sup
ply of it to the State department of
agriculture. Commissioner Butler has
forwarded the sampie to Commissioner
Coleman of the national department,
to be examined and tested. If the fibre
has textile strength sufficient to permit
its taking the place of other fibres more
expensive to produce, it will work a
revolution in the South, and add to the
already great industrial value of the

NEW YORK, April .-A syndicate,

applying the process to the reduction
to paper of cotton stalks and seed hulls,
now practically worthless. Promioters
of the enterprise claim that they can
make good nlewspaper at two cents per
pound anid consequently the establish
ing of their mills will be as great an
event in the economical history of the
south as the establishing of the cotton

A Son of Governor Porter, of Tennessee,
NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 7.-A spe
cial to the American says that Kennedy
Porter, was shot and probably fatally
wounded here Thursday night about 11
o'clock by Will Edmunds. The origin
of the difficulty is supposed to be the
attentions of young Porter to Edmund's
sister, which the latter objected to and
had frequently threatened to kill him
if he did not desist. Porter had been
out driving with Edmunds's sister that
night and had returned the team to the
stable and started up Depot street to
wards the square when he met Ed
munds about the Blanton house, who
told him that he was going to kill him
and for him to defend himself. Ed
munds then fired, the ball, a 38-calibre,
striking Porter in the left breast just
below the collar bone, ranging down
wards. On hearing the threat, Porter
drew his pistol, but too late. Porter
now lies in a precarious condition. The
wounl has not as yet been probed.
