us that the Legislature is without E

It might be submitted to the countie;
to say whether they would assume thE

again the townships that issued the
bonds might be clothed with adequat
corporate powers, and the question o1
validating the bonds referred to the
voters of the townships. But we fewi
that counties and townships alike ar(
ready to take advantage of the decisior
of the Supreme Court.
It cannot be denied that in some
: quarters the decision of the Supreme
Court was received with marked satis
faction, while to many good people il
carried nothing but consternation. IL
is right that people should pay thei
debts; but it is also'right that railroac
companies should comply with the
of their agreements. No mattei

morals raised by the decision of the
Supreme Court, those townships thal

in sackcloth and ashes as an expressior
of grief at their release from these bonds
It is immoral for a man to take advan
tage of a legal decision to avoid his jusi
debts. But in the case of these bond,
the moral responsibility cannot be fixec
with certainty on individuals, and it
many cases the subscriptions were
made by bare majoritles.
We regard the decision of thE
Supreme Court as a great misfortune
and we hope that some means will b<
devised to protect innocent purchasern
* of bonds; but we feel at the same timE
that the readiness with which the peo
pie acquiesce in the decision of thE
Supreme Court is largely due to thei:
7-a ck of confidence in the railroad corn
panies to which their bonds were issued
AN ECONOMIC SUGGESTION.
-While the Legislature seems to hav<
a spasm of economy we wish to offe:
a simple suggestion, which, if adopted
will furnish the means to support thi
Clemson College. The State Constitu
tion provides that the Legislature shal
meet on the fourth Tuesday in Novem
ber annually. For "annually" let thE
pe'>ple substitute "bi-enially," so thal
the Legislature shall meet only once
every two years, and the result will be
a saving of upwards of thirty-fivE
thousand dollars every two years, ol
about eighteen thousand dollars annu
If there is any good reason, apari
from the Constitutional requirement
why the Legislature should meet every
year, we hope that the man who sees il
will not be too modest to make it known

Mr. Mower has introduced a bill it

* already held that such an Act is consti

LEGISLATIVE AND JUDICIAL.

JoHN C. Wiaox,
E. 3L. EvaSs,
An E-planation from Mr. J. A. Sligh.
To the Democratic Voters of Newv
berry County: The correspondence
which has recently appeared in the
county papers concerning a resoluiloen
adopted at a meeting he!d on the 1st
day of September last seems to require
an explanation from some one, and as
circumstances made me perhaps the
most conspicuous character ia that
meeting, I step forward this morning
just long enough to say a few words in
order to set the matter right and pre
vent injustice being done to any inno
In discharging this duty I might ap
propriately refer to my? adheceace to
the Democratic party in the past, and
to the conservative course purst -d by
me in the efforts which I have made
to purify and not dismiemnbr the par
ty. But as the people, and not the'
politicians, are the judges of all such
matte?'s, I wAin at once approach the
duty which I started out to perfor.n
13 doing this I might remind the
voters of the county that the- e are two
sides to this quest'oo, and I might say
something about the bitter feeling of
disappointment on the night of the
28th of August last when the result of
the election was know n-how that
many, very many, good and honest
Democra ts and citizeas came to me and
declared to mec in language strong and;
unmistakable that something had'to1
be done and that I was the proper per
son to do it-and how, not a few even
t he next morning renewed the demaud,
and how that after this we held a little
meeting at which we deliberately came
to the following conciusions:
1st. That there should be no con
test made before the Enecutive Comn
~mittee for several reasons; one of which
has already been given, and another of
which I might here say was on account
of the peculiar difficulties of getting at A
the facts in the case, as the records of
some of the previous elections could
not be found, and as there was no law
regulating such elections, p.roviding for
the punishment of offenuuers, or to
compel men to testify under oath, or to
force nersons to produce papers, records,
2nd. It was agreed not to encourage to
an independent movement, but to act la
within the lines of the Democratic of
party, and to purify it by discoun- c<
tenaneing a id denouncing all wrong I
doing in the recent primary election. ai
3rd. It was also agreed to hold an h
indignation meeting in order further to e
discuss these mati ers and adopt certain al
resolutions expressive of our views. n
M. A. Carlisle, Esq., was unanimous
ly chosen and requested to draft said t<
resolutions, and this duty wa. assigned c<
him, not because he sought it, but on ti
account of his peculiar :itoess to put c
into proper shape the views that had si
already -een expressed and adopted. n
Mr. W. A. Hill, without any previous si
knowledge on his part, was asked to f
introduce the resolutions at the indig- cl
nation meeting. . t
I might further explain why it was o:
that the subject of you -hers was intro- s
uccd and was put in the resolutions, 1
by saying that very much was said 1
about illegal votes and voters, and that M
something was said about certain ne- g
groes themselves being vouched for and
were expected to vouch for some of M
their brethren; that something else was t<
said about a very small number of ne- R
groes having voted the Democratic p
ticket at the general election of 1886; A
and that some other things in this con- n
netion were mentioned which per- a
haps have a still sironger bearing on f
this question, but which we will not use "d
And I might g on to state that, that f<
orderly Democratic indignation meet- R
ing was well attended by as good d
Democrats and citizens as the county 8
of Newberry has ever produced, and a
that mny more things might have A
been done and sonic omitted had it not a
been on account of the County Con- d
vention being held the same day and a
almost at the same hour, many of the n
meibe.s of the caucus being good "
enough Democrats to be members of
the County Democratic Convention. S
I might also state that the articles
which appeared over my signature in
the county papers relative to this mat
ter were prepared and published in re- b
snonse to a demand made by the peo
ple (Democrats,) as were the resolutions, r<
and that when I had discharged the m
duty assigned me, I disappeared be- r
hind the curtain, as I is like manner
shall do again; and that though loudly a
and frequently caiied for to reappear, e
I did not do so, notwithstanding the ,
many hard, mean and false things that r
were said about me in private and a
through the press.
I might, and I will say it, for I mean a
it, that since ceriain geatlemen feel t)
themselves aggrieved and are hunting
up the author of those "famous" reso- tl
lutions, that I hereby announce and is
publicly declare as those resolutions h
have come out of so many heads and b
hearts, and have no particular head to s
them, that I will shoulder the responsi- ff
bility, that I will carry the whole load t;
by taking it all on myself; and now a
s nce I have assumed this responsibili
ty, and s: ace in niy published articles
on this question I omitted the word c
irresponu.bie, believing it then to be too 9
sweeping; and mio-e especially since I C
do not wish to do an injustice to any
innocent party or parties, I hereby t
agree to wipe out forever that hateful e
word "i 'responsible" ; and I rejoice that
out of so many words used that this is -
the only one that seems to be objec
Ina coaclusion, after making these ti
statements and explanations, and after y
st iing out the objectionable word, I y
wish to say that I sincerely hope that si
ever ybod y now w'.1 be es wvell pleased -a
at the results which have already grown a
out of this disiurbance, and those that
are likely to take place in the future, as a
I am; and that our Legislature will f
have the w'sdom and pat, i ism to find ,
a wauy to legaaiz.e primiary elections and o
thowv arounid them such safeguards as i*

abuses and irregularities ,o occur again. &
