THE CLEMSON BEQUEST.
The debate in the Legislature on
the bill in favor of accepting the
Clemson bequest, was very able, it is
said. but it was marred by some un
pleasant feat.ures. A great many
things were said that had nothing to
do with the merits of the bill, and
that might with propriety have been
left unsaid. For-instanee, it was al
together unnecessary for the friends
of the bill to charge the Lees with a
lack of filial duty; and it is a pity
that it was deemed necessary by the
opponents of the measure to unearth
and publish ugly scandals about poor
dead Clemson. The argument was
neither strengthened nor dignified by
having these matters dragged into it,
and the matters themselves are not
There has been a good deal of
sentimental talk about robbing and
disinheriting a descendant of John
C. Calhoun--talk that was amusing,
but may yet become nauseating.
The Legislature has nothing to do
with Miss Lee, and nothing to do
with Calhoun, and nothing to do
with the private character of Thomas
G. Clemscm. All these matters only
tend to load do,wn and obscure the
important question with which the
Legislature and the people have
something to do.
The pith and marrow of the whole
subject, when stripped of sentimen
talism and sensationalism, is em
braced in a single question:
Do the people want the Clemson
property under the terms cf the will?
If Miss Lee has title or right to
this property, let the courts, to which
she has appealed, so adjudge, and
that will end the matter. If on the
other hand, Mr. Clemson was the
real and absolute owner of the pro
perty, he had a right to dispose of
it as he pleased. Few thirgs are
held more sacred by the laws of
civilized countries than the right to
dispose of one's property as seems
good to him. The question of title.
howeve-, must be decided by the
courts and not by the Legislature.
And it is right that Miss Lee should
have a full and fair hearing by the
The Legislature has a very im
portant but a very simple duty in
*-the matter, and that is to say
whether it will accept or refuse the
bequest. That question deserves to
be weighed with great care and de
liberation---but it is the only question.
It makes no difference to the peo
ple whose grand-daughter Miss Lee
is: and it makes no difference what
was the moral character of Thomas
G. Clemson. If they want the Clem

SAVING OUR CREDIT.
The decision of the Supreme Court
declaring township bonds invalid has
called forth divers and diverse
opinions- wise and otherwise-as to
where the remedy lies. Among
other things it is insisted that the
General Assembly ought to save the
credit of the State by passing a
validating Act, even though it should
hereafter prove only so much waste
paper-that we should show that our
intentions are honorable even by
enacting an ineffectual law. In
other words, the Legislature made a
mess of the township bonds by en
acting an unconstitutional law, and
it should now show how sorry it is by
enacting another unconstitutional
TLwo wrongs do not make one
right; and we have enough waste
paper. The statute books are too
much cumbered already with bad
laws, lame laws, and unconstitutional
The State must maintain some
thing else than its credit for debt.
paying. It is equally important that
it should maintain, or at least estab
lish. a reputation for wise and con
servative legislation on financial
questions. The question is fast be
con:ing, not whether the intentions
of the peopble are good, but whether
the people can make good their in
tentions not whether the Legisla
tirre is honest in its purpose, but
whether it knows how to pass a law
that will prove valid and effectual to
carr-y out an honest purpose.
So far as the ultitnate fact is con
celrned, it :nskes no difference to the
investor whether his monev was lost
through the trick of a knave or the:
blunder of a fool- and we "mean no
unikindnecss by~ this illustration.
What dioes concern him is the bare
fact that the moner that he invested
in good fith is lost.
Look : ain at the township bonds.
The innocent purchaser, as the matter
n?ow stands, is as likely to suffer from
a lack of wisdom in the General
the tax payers. Let the Legislature
seek to apply a remedy by passing a
validating Act that shall prove un
constitutional, and it will hereafter
be a question with foreign capitalists
whether it is ever safe to invest
money under a South Carolina statute
that has not been passed upon by the
Supreme Court. The credit of the
State ought to be maintained above
reproach, but not at the expense of
the public confidence in the law -mak
It is important that the Leg
islature should do something in
the matter of the township bonds; it
is more important that that something
should stand the final test. It is im
portant that prompt action should be
taken; it is more important that it
should be taken wisely and within
the limits of the constitution. We
have had too much hasty legislation.
We have too many laws that are ill
advised and ill-digested. And we do
not want a lame law now merely as
an expression of a healthy senti
LAWYERS AND OTHER I'EOPLE.
It appears from the Columbia cor
respondence of the News and Courier
that there are u t aen in the Legis
lature who, instead of voting for o
against measures, vote contrary to
certain lawyers. This senseless pre
judice against lawyers simiply because
they are lawyers is a good deal older
than our Legislature. In colonial
days-not to go back to the flood
an Act was passed in Virginia for
oidding any person to practice law
the penalty being a certain number
of pounds of tobacco. The Act was
soon repealed, however, and to-day
law and- tobacco flourish alike on
There are some poor lawyers and
some bad lawyers; but there is no
disputing the fact that a good many
men in other pit -ssions need to be
born again. The lawyers as a class
are as good as anybody else as a
class. Most of them are men of edu
cation; many of them are men of
ability; and as a rule they are patri
otic citizens. They are, moreover,
possessed of infinite good nature.
One of their strong points is the com
placency with which they regard, or
rather disregard, their critics. It is
not unlikely that, as they keep the
even tenor of their war. they some
times feel the sentiment said to have
been written by Sterne in a letter
from France: "~As we rode along the
valley we saw a herd of asses on a
neighboring mountain-how they
viewed and reviewed us!"
- The State Senate has passed the
Clemson bill to the third reading.
There was a tie in the vote-10 to
16-on the motion to postpone it
until next session. The President
then cast his vote in the negative,
and the vote stood .17 to 35.
Judge Simonton. has granted an
order of injunction restraining the
Clemson Executor from disposing of
the Fort Hill place until the further
order of the Court. The bill in fa

quest has meantime passed the House
and passed to its third reading in
It was Charles Lamb. we think,
who once told the poet Coleridge
that he could improve his conversa
tion by interspersing it with a few
brilliant jhtcs of silence. The sort
of eloquence that the people espe
cially like in their representatives is
an occasional stretch-a good long
stretch-of golden silence mn which
the legislature gets down to hard,
honest, steady work on the calendar.
