It is a settled fact that so-far as the
white man in South Carolina is con
cerned that he must act with the Demo
cratic party, for it is the party of decen

gepetuation of the Anglo-Saxon race.
'It is the white man's party. But be
' cause such is the case and because
there is but one party for the decent
white man, is no reason why he should
be led by unprincipled demagogues to
swallow anything and everything that
may be uttered by. these so-called
leaders whose stock in trade is personal

us away from Democracy. In fact it is

ione of them have been so hard to keep

It is a great pleasure to announce the
onsummation of an important enter
rise, the good news of which has been
;uppressed for weeks. Some time ago it P
vas mentioned in this correspondence d
hat the Congaree Construction Com- n
)any, a corporation chartered by the u
.egislature several years ago, had effect- f
d a preliminary organization. Later
t was shown that the company had e
een fully wrganized by the election ofe
illiam H. Lyles, of Columbia, as presi
lent; W. G. Childs, of Columbia, as V
secretary and treasurer; and Col. John a
r. Sloan, Jr. of Columbia, as Solicitor; v
Lnd the following board of directors:
Dr. Jas. Woodrow, W. A. Clark, Col.
ohn T. Sloan, Jr., W. G. Childs, W.
E. Lyles, Capt. C. J. Iredell of Colum
)ia, and H. C. Moseley of Prosperit.y. t
Nothing could be said at that time of
be purpose of the company, as it was c
working out its objects quietly. b
Now come the results: Within the
ast fortnight twenty prominent busi
iess men of Columbia Newberry and e
Prospe:ity have subscribed to. the stock
5,0C3 each, giving the company a cash
apital of $100,003. With this money f
;he corporation will complete the Co
umbia, Newberry and Laurens Rail- t
.ad from Columbia to Newberry.
S'egotiations with the railroad compa
iy, which have been in progress for
some time, were concluded to day, t
LVessrs. H. C. Moseley, president of the b
*ailroad, and Mr. W. H.. Lyles, presi- e
lent of the Construction Company, t
igning a contract by which the latter
:ompany is to complete the road to
gewberry by May 1, 1830. Bids for the
grading, bridge building, steel rail, r
3rossties and rolling s,ock will be at 1
)nce advertised for, and the line will .
ertainly be built, in first-class style, by a
the time specified.
- A start will be made as soon as bids a
aan be obtained and contracts awarded. (
rhe terms of the contract have not
been made public, but the assurance is
given that they are such as will be en
arely satisfactory to both of the con
tracting parties as well as to the people (
:long the line. s
The road has been surveyed from ,
Columbia to Newberey and the route
decided on, except as to the passage to
the north or south of Little Mountain t
in Lexington County. The estimated t
cost of building is $12,00 a mile. The
grading has been completed from Co- f
lumbia to a point twenty miles distant. i
The entire distance to Newberry is 42
As the readers of News and Courier
will remember, this road was projected I
to give the people of the rich Dutch
Fork of Lexington an outlet, and to s
advance the transportation interests of
Columbia, Prosperity and Newberry. 1
The grading was in progress and the
piers of the bridge over Broad River at i
Columbia had been cempleted when a
the township bond decision of the Su
preme Court arrested all work, the
stock having been mainly subsc.ibed by.
the townships along the line. Under the
last decision of the Court the bonds
issued will doubtless hold good, aud i
will offer additional resources to the
One of the chief reasons prompting
the arrangement which ha's been made
is the fact that under it the road will
be owned by th6. people for whose bene-'
fit it was , begun. The Construct'ont
Company is controlled in Columbia and u
Lhe line will be kept independent of all
the complications of the big systems.
At the same tim3 it will do threet
things of value to this city and to the
pepe who contributed to build it. Ite
will connect at Newberry with thec
Three ('s on its line between Blacks
burg and Augusta. It will give thei
Atlantic Coast Line and the South
Carolina Railway an outlet to the up
country independent of the Richmond
and Danville, and it will give the Gieor-c
gia, Carolina and Northerr (the John
Robinson system) a line to Columbia I
when that road shall extend across the (
State. The local traffic will be very
large and nobody doubts that the road
will be self-supporting.
The Piedmont Land and Improve
ment Company, another Columbia en
terprise, has saw mills at work on the
line, and owns large tracts of land, and
the building of the road will make it]
Altogether the arrangement of to-day
is agreat thing for Columbia. 1
Here is quick work: The contrast for<
the completion of the road was only I
signed this morning, and to-morrow 1
morning The News and Courier will
contain an advertisement for bids to
furnish trestling for a section of the,
road. This trestling is to be put on the

order to enable the line to be promipily 1

GALLATIN, Mo., April 22.--One of s
the boldest railroad robberies ever per
petrated by a single robber in Missouri I
occurred at Pattonsburg, on the WVa- '
bash road, Friday night, and has just t
eaked out. About nine o'clock Fridayt
night one masked burglar entered the t
station at Pattonsburg. He covered
the agent, the one person in the station,
with a pistol, .and demanded the key,
which he received. He then made the
gent occupy a given position and pro- t
aeded to plunder. He cleaned the 1
ffice out of everything valuable, secur- I
ing money estimated at from $6,000 to I
510,000. The booty was one express I
ackage of $3,000, a letter addressed to I
he Pattonsburg bank containing $1,000 -i
mnd a number of express packages. He s
lso took all the express, freight and c
cket funds and robbed the agent of
:is own money and valuables. The

That's How it Strikes Some Republicans
in South Carolina.
[Special to the World.]
COLUMBIA, April 22.-Hon E. M.
Brayton, chairman of the Republican
State Executive Committee, returned
from Washington yesterday, where be
has been for a number of weeks past.
During his stay at the capital he had
an audience with President Harrison
and interested himself considerably in
the various appointments which will
probably be made in South Carolina by
the new administration at an early
Mr. Brayton was seen this morning
by aWorld reporter, and in the course
of the conversation expressed himself
as anything but pleased with the gen
eral result of his visit, and was not
favorably impressed with President
Harrison and his policy.
"Is there any ground," asked the re
porter, "for the impression which has
gone abroad that the President intends
to ignore the old line Republicans in
the South, and try to organize a new
party on new lines?"
"Sir," was the reply, "there is every
ground for it. During my whole visit,
I was impressed with the fact that the
administration was not a friendly one
to the Southern Republicans, and we
cannot understand it. The Indepen
dents, who have been in Washington
hard at work for some time, have evi
dentlyshad some influence with the
President. We go there and find our
selves kept at arm's length, and we
can see no reason for it. As you know
there have been no changes made in
the offices in the South, and we have
no idea when the appointments will be
"How do the applications seem to be
received at the departments?"
"Rather coldly, and the colored ap
plicants do not seem to stand much of
a chance. The President told an A la
bama delegation which called upon
him on Saturday, that the appoint
ment of colored men seemed to inflame
the prejudices of the Southern people,
and while he expected to have to dis
appoint several hundred office-seekers,
one feature of hisadministration would
be to see that the colored people in the
South got their just rights. He seenis
to have his own ideas about the situt
tion in the South, and especially about
the independent movement, and does
not care to hear anything further about
it, or any arguments contrary to his
present views. It is very evident, I
think, that he wants to put the party
on an entirely new basis in the South.
In Alabama, South Carolina, and Vi'
ginia, there seems to be a new move
ment, and he is waiting its develop
nWent. The movement seems stronger
in Alabama than elsewhere, as the new
party there represents largely men of
wealth, recognized standing and intel
ligence. But in South Carolina it is
different. In Virginia the division is
between Wise and Mahone, and the
President seems to favor the former,
and if this is the case Mahone certainly
will not stand it."
RICHMOND, Va., April 23.-It is
learned here to-day that President
Harrison has asked ex-Senator Ma
hone, of Virginia, to appoint some day
next week on which tney may discu.
the political affairs of this State. The
president wants to understand, it is
said, something or the plan of organi
zation of the party in the State, whose
chairman is Mahone, and hence the
desire for mutual understanding. '
The democrats 'are afraid the presi
dent will be poisoned by Mahone's
methods of antagonism to Bourbonism.
Then they fear all bold men like Ma
hone and ex-Attorney General Blair,
who so well understand and have so
fully shown to the w-orld how far be
yond the line of common justice in
politics the deservedly beaten party
can go. Republican aspirants for
office in Virginia are getting rather
restive, but hope for a moving of the
waters about the 1st of May.

Celebration of Easter.
The celebration of the queen of festi
vals for 1889 is past. Who greeted his
brother with a kiss and wyitn the words
"Christ is risen," and received the
Christian response "He is risen indeed?"
This was a custom with Christians long
ago, when they decorated their churches
with large wax candles, and is still a
custom in the Greek church. Quite a
number of curious celebrations pre
valed among different nationalities. It
is a habit in some of the countries of
England for the gentlemen to parade
the streets unmiolested and thecr a -h lady
he rmet to lift her veil and kiss he1'. The
opposite sex practiced the rcdiculous
habit of kissing the men the ne:xt day.
The Irish believed in the legend of the
sun's dancing on Easter morning. This
belief was abolished in England by the
writings of Sir Thomas B -owne. Our
childrin now enjoy an old custom of
coloring eggs and testing their strength.
After Christ there was quite a diver
sity of opinions as to the time that
Easter should be celebrated. About
the middle of the second century, Poly
carp, one of the early Christian fathers,
and Pope Anicetus consulted in Rome
and adopted the present mode of cele
brati ng Easter. Later, however, other
notions prevailed, and not until the
beginnIng of the fourth century wa
the perplexing question settled by tige
whole church at the council at ice, at
the instance of Constantine. The time
adopted by the Christian Church is the
Sabbath aft2r the fourth moon aft'r
Christmas. Easter can never come bc

Colonel Rice in Newberry
Faithful to his appointment, Colouel
Rice appeared before a New berr~y au di
ence on last Saturday. the number as
sembled to hear him was not so large as
it should have been. This was owing
largely to the fact, howeve, : that the'
farmers could not afford to leave their
farms during so busy a season.
There is no Ooubt that it woulcl have
.een well for every teacher and school
rustee in the county to have been pres
ent. But only a few, a very few, of
these were on hand to hear the excellent
speech of the Superintendent.
The drift of the address was as to the
duties of the School Commissioner and
Board of Trustees. Colonel Rice bc
lieves that that the prosperity of the
schools depends to a large extent upon
the earnestness, activity and round
judgment of the School Commissioner.
He believes that that this officer should
untiring in his work during the school
term; that he should spend a great part
of his time in the field, visiting the
various schools of the county, advising
the teachers as to the b::ot method of
instruction, and arousing the trustees
upon the importance of their work.
He says that some School Commis
sioners do not do their duty, but are
content to draw their salaries and let
the schools take care of themselves.
He thinks that Trustees also can do
a great deal of good by paying more
attention to their schools than they
have in the past.
The Superintendent takes a hopeful
view of education in South Carolina.
He feels that progress is being made,
although there is fron some parties
strong opposition to the common school
system. This opposition arises from
the fact that the system is 'not under

In many portions of the county bet
ter school buildings are sadly nceded.
The school term runs through the
winter months, when the severest
weather is experienced. If the schools
were to be opened during the summer.
months, then a poor school house could
be better endured. This is not the case,
In order for a teacher to do successful
work, in order that the children may
make steady and~ satisfactory progress,
a warm, comfortable school room is
necessary. Every school house schould,
be heated by a stove unless the rooms
are well ceiled, because a chimney does
not meet the demand.
It should be a part of the work of
Commissioner and Trustees to have
better school rooms.. In a great many
-instances, we are glad to say, the build
ings are very good at present, but in
many others they are not.
Many of the schools of the county
have already closed. Some have closed
to open again during the month of July,
when the summer term will begin. It
is true the summer months are very
warm, often uncomfortably so, but it
suits the people in some sections to have
a summer term, and it is right to yield
to their wishes.
There is no doubt that there willebe
an institute held here this summer.
The very best talent that can be gotten
will be here to conduct the institute.
The time-latter part of June-is not
for distant, and every white teacher in
the county should make preparations
to be present.
The next association will be held at
Newberry on the 3d Saturday in May.
Programme for the meeting will be
found in the next issue of the papers.
