"The discontinuance of these trains is
rendered necessary on account of the

chasm as best we can, giving the best

proves. We are doing absolutely
nothing, either in treight or passenger
business. For the month of January
our passenger earnings on the Colum

off about 30 per cent. This, I presume,
is the case on most all of the roads in
the State, and, of course, we are to
make the best we can of our position in
this matter. I hope that when the
business will warrant we will- be able
to increase our passenger service on the
Greenville and Columbia division as

On the 31st tbe Coast Line will also

an earnest prayer from Rev. J. A.

Makes His Maiden Speech-It is Well Re
WASHINGTON, January 19.-One of
the features of the proceediugs in the
House of Representatives to-day was
the iaiden speech of Congressman
Johistone, of South Carolina. It was
during the consideration of the report
o[ the comminhittee ou printing, which
recoiiended an entire change in the
system of distributing public doeu
When Mr. Johnstone arose to ad
dress the House he was at tice recog
nized as a new member, and his asso
ciates gatbered around him to "size
him up," to use a popular expression.
It did not take them long t > discove.
that the new member from South Caro
lina had studied his subject thoroughly
and was well supplied with natural
talents as a debater. His voice is
strong enough to be distincly heard in
all parts of the chamber; his gestures
are easy and graceful and his command
of language is admirable.
He attacked the report at several
points and showed to the satisfaction of
a large majority of his associates that
the proposed changes in the system of
printing and distributing public docu
ments would not only embarrass mem
bers of the House, and discriminate in
favor of Senators, but it would create a
new Federal office to be filled by ap
pointment of the President, and con
firmed by the Senate. He also attacked
a proposition to appoint an editor to
revise the copy which is printed in the
Congressional Record. So convincing
was his argument that the report was
laid upon the table by an overwhel
mingly large vote. Thus Mr. John
stone not only distinguished himself
as a debater, but he scored a decided
victory in is first Parliamentary
batttle.-Special to the News and Cou

The servant's house at Dr. W. E.

was coming out of the roof and the
fire appeared to be quite serious, as the
house was not more than twenty feet
from the residence. it happened that
Dr. Pelham was at home celebrating
the birthday of his youngest son, and
he soon had the garden hose attached
to the force pump. Mr. H. H. Kinard
was pruning Dr. Pelham's roses and
Dr. W. G. Houseal had stopped to chat
with him. They went to work with
buckets and the pump. Mr. D. B.

came up and ass!-ted the three ama

flames. The damages were small.

EMIGRANTS TO ALABAMA.
Some 00 Negroes Leave Edgefie!d Count3
-Farmers Left Without Labor
What's the Matter with
the "Late Act?"
Sitlce the first of Septemlber some SOK
negroes have left Edgefield County for
Alabama-may of them going fromu
the sectiot just across the river from
A carload left about the 15th of tlis
miontli and on Monday night there were
atout 100 or imiore at( Chappells to go with
a carload that was bookedl to leave that
night. But there was a misunderstand
ing sonie way about this trip. The
coaches that were left there for thei
were taken toColuitbia and we were told
hy Mr. loit. W. Hunt, passenger agent
for the It. & 1). railroad that he would
not take any more at this time as many
of them w?re under contract. Some of
the negroes said, however, th.e train
would leave this, Wednesday, night.
Those who have left heretofore will not
say who is getting them to go nor when
they are to leave.
Taking hands away at this time in
manv cases works great hardship. We
were~told of several farmers in this sec
tion who had contracted for the year,
but who were left without any hands
at all. One farmer with 9 mules had
employed his second set of hauds for
this year and made arrangements for
the Making of the crop. On Monday
he did not have a hand on his place.
What has become of the force and
effect of the law passed by the recent
Legislature requiring amigrant agents
to procure a license? The law is short
and for the benefit of our readers in this
section of the county we append it
THE "LATE ACT."
Sec. 1. That from and after the ap
proval of this Act, no person shall carry
on the business of an emigraot agent
in this State without having first ob
tained a license therefor from zbe State
See. 2. That the tern "emigrant
agent" contemplated in this act, shall
be construed to mean any person en
gaged in hiring laborers or soliciting
emigrants in this State to be employed
beyond the limits of the same.
See. ;3. That any person shall be en
titled to a license, which shall be good
for one year, upon payment into the
State treasury for the ise of the State,
the same of 91,00) in each county in
which he operates or solicits emigrants,
for each year so engaged.
Sec. 4.' That any person doing the
business of an emigrant agent without
having first obtained such license, shall
be guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon
conviction shall be punished by fine,
not less than $500, and not more th- n
$5,000, or may be imprisoned in the
county jail riot less than four months,
or confined in the State prison at hard
labor not exceeding two years, for each
and every o'lense within thediscretion
of the court.

must be simple; when it is not simple it is
not good. Simp le, Beautiful, Good-these
words mean much, but to see "The Rochester"
will impress the truth more forcibly. All metal,
tough and seamless, and made in three pieces only,
it is absolutely saf,-.nd unbreakable. Like Aladdin's
of old, it is indeed a "wonderful lamp," for its mar
velous light is purer and brighter than gas light,
softer than electric light and more cheerful than either.
