WM. P. HOUSEAL,
NEWBERRY, S. C,
MAYOR OF NEWBERRY.
The resignation of Mr. L. W. C. Bla
lock as Mayor of Newberry is pub
lished elsewhere in this issue. The
people of Newberry have not had time
to think of naming his successor. The
Herald and News would help them to
come to a conclusion, as this is an off
election, by suggesting that Mr. D. B.
Wheeler be promoted to the office of
Mayor of Newberry for the unexpired
teru. He has been recently acting as
Mayor pro tem., and there is no doubt
that he will be an acceptable and ca
pable man at the head of the affairs ol
the town of Newberry. The* Herald
and News makes this as a suggestion
If Mr. Wbeeler should accept the
nomination, there would be three
vacancies to fill: Mayor, Alderman
for Ward 2, and Alderman for Ward 4.

The faculty of the South Carolina
College has suspended eleven students
for making a boLifire and causing the
people of Co',nbia much alarm one
night last wtek, and the people of Co
lumbia got up a petition to the faculty
to revoke its -decision in the matter.
The faculty met Monday night and
came to a determination, but did not
let the newspaper men into the secret.
This is a day of the "petition," and in
this case it may have had its usual
salutary (?) effect.

with the olive branch upon its brow.
We look for some journals to tear their
hair at this juncture.
It is a relief to know that we are tc

Governor Tillman's supporters are not
radicals or political plunderers. They
are good people and are as honestly
anxious for the well being of the State
and as much interested in it as The
State or the Greenville News or any
body else. We do not wish to treal
them as foes, and could not do it if we

surely desirable for every reason. We
do not intend to surrender to the Till
mnanites and confess that we have beer
wrong and they right nor would wi
ask them to make such confessions ani
surrender to us. We believe the peo
pie on both sides are anxious to get to
gether. We know it is of tremendou!
importance that they should get to
gether. So long as the present breacd
and bitterness continues the State is is
very serious danger. To adopt the ex
pressed policy of The State is to plaa
exactly into Governor Tillmian's hands
He knows that there are no difference:
of principle among the Democrats o
the State. His organs and spokesmei
are unable to name one point of essentia
difference. Governor Tillman knows
or should know, that he has been ar
expensive failure, that so soon &s hi
record is calmly and honestly studiec
he will have to go. It is to his insteres
to keep alive bitterness and factiona
feeling and heat. His purposes woulc
be served just as well-better, perhapi
-by the drawing of the line against his
follo wers as by the dra wing of the lini
against his opponents.
The Greenville News is against Till
man because it is for South Carolina
and the great Democratic party. FM
the same reason it opposes the ostra
cism of any Democrat because of his
honest opinion in State politics.
We hope to see the line drawn onij
so far that care will be taken that eaci
side of the line will have an equal shar<
with the other side in South Carolina
We do not wish to see a conquerec
peace. We wish a peace secured by
the good feeling :sf the good people e
both sides so that the strife of the las1
three years may be remembered only
to be avoided in the future.
Extreme and violent men of boti
sides should be left out. Men whose
allegiance to the Democratic party an
doctrine is doubtful and wavering and
who are not sound to the core ought ta
be rigidly excluded. Men who have
labored to stir strife for their own ad
vantage ought to be denied all favors
by people and President.
All the offices-Federal and State
should be divided with precise equal
ity between the two factions. Th.ley
should be given to moderate, fair
minded, sober metn who are true Dem
ocrats and who have taken and hl
their positions from honest sense of
duty. There are plenty of such men
in both factions.
We should all work together to have
factional lines broken down in this
State by 1894 so that the whbite people
of our State may again be a solid, in
vincible host, working and thinking
together for the State and the party.
That is a patriotic hope and purpose,
the only one we can see our way tc
hold; for continuation of the conditions
of last year means an inevitable split
and fearful disaster.
These Tillman people are South Car
olina white men. They can not be
whipped or bulldozed or bullied intc
a peace. We would be asbamed of
them if they could be. We are equally
sure that the anti-Tillman people can
not be driven or forced by threats or
pressure or starvation. The thing to
be done is for each side to drop its
arms, prove its purpose to deal justly
with the other and agree on a peaceful
union on fair terms, each forgiving
and forgetting some things, each sur
rendering some of its claims, or even
its rights, for the sake of the State.
ON THE ANXIOUS BENCH.
Wbat Carolina Faction Will Control the
Federal Patronage? Earl or Elliott
Will be District Attorney.
[Special to Augusta Chronicle.]
WASHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 26.-The
question most intricate and interesting
to South Carolinians just now is which
faction of the Palmetto Democracy will
coutrol the federal patronage of that
state. Senator Butler is certain to come
in for his share, but it is a fact conceded
by every (ne here that Congressman
Brawley -ill have powerful influence.
He is a warm personal friend of the
President-elect, and is thorough ac
cord with him on the silver question.
In fact, he is the only anti-silver man
in Congress from his State. It is gen
erally believed that he will be Mr.
Cleveland's personal representative in
the lower House during the ne4t Con
gress, Senator Irby expects proper re
cognition of the Tillman faction, and
his efforts are zealously backed by
Shell. McLaurin and Strait.
Many gentlemen here who own al
giance to the Conservative faction
openly state that, in their opinion, Mr.
Cleveland will favor the Tillmanites
with the largest portion of the Carolina
patronage. Messrs. Latimer and Tal
bert are in the same boat and will pull
together, but where they will pull to
or with what success nobody knows.
However, their certificates of election,
based as they are upon an ultra-Alli
ance vote, make it fairly certain that
their reception by the President will
be anything else but cordial. But in

United States Commissioner Bauskett,

rhey are going to try to pick some

Yesterday morning Attorney-Gen

where lie has been with Senator Irby
or the last few days.
Maj. Townsend was seen soon after

very much tired out and had the ap

[The State, Feb. 26.]
Owing to the progress of the railroad

now at work preparing the briefs and

E. Hagood of Chicago was brought here
from Atlanta V>-day by the father of
his 16-year-old wife, Mr. Beaudrot, to
answer to the charge of bigamy. Col.
Hagood had scarcely been placed be
hind the prison bars before there was a
rush of wives from various parts of the
State to this city, and it is probable that
a convention of his wives will be held
here. When the Court of Sessions
meets, on Monday next, it is thought
that many counties in the State will be
represent,ed by a Mrs. Hagood. Thus
far only two States outside of South
Carolina have been heard from. The

dren. one of whom, an 18-year-old
daughter, has been living with the
Colonel. He had also married a Miss
Davis in Waterboro, who b >re him four
children, and then died.
Col. Hagood came to Charleston ten
years ago and married a Miss Alley, the
daughter of a rich undertaker here.
Her wifebood lasted about three weeks.
She is dead. He was next heard of at
Pineopolis, an aristocratic settlement
in Berkeley coun y, where he went
through a marriage ceremony with a
Miss Atkins. Ttlen he was beard of in
Vanceburgh, where he was married
again. After six or eight years he dis

Mrs. Clancy, with whom he remained

wife that he had the grip and that she
must look out for the announcement of
his death in the Philadelphia papers.
The announcement came in due time.

$20 a month. Her maiden name was
Beck. She was about to enter a convent
here, when she fell heir to some pro
perty and met Hagood. Hagood is of
the distinguished family to w bich Gen.
Johnson Hagood, a famous Confederate
General of this State, belonged. There
can be no doubt of his connection with
the family. He is distinctly aHagood.
He is about 60 years old, was in the
Confederate army, and is very hand

Plans of the Whiskey Men.
[Special to News and Courier.1
COLUMBIA, February 24.-There was
a general opinion that the counsel for
the Liquor Dealers' Association would
appear before the Supreme Court at its
special session and secure some kind of
an order that would give them preced
ene in the fight that is to be made
against the bill. The course of the
counsel has excited some inquiry. It
need not be presumed that because the
counsel employed by the liquor men
have done nothing for show that
they are not hard at work-on the
case. From all that can learned they
are all hard at work studying the
points in the fight. Mr. Smith, of
Mitchell & Smith, Mr. J. N. Nathans,
and Mr. James Simons, Siegling .&
Cappel man, are looking up the law in
the case. It is understood that these
lawyers are to prepare individual opin
ions as to the possibilities of the case
and as to the best way of proceeding if
they find that there is good enc ugh case
for them to go into Couirt. The opinions
'ked for are to deal with the possibili
ties of the suit and to tell the associa
tion honestly what are the chances,
and, if the council decide that they
have a good ese, how it would be best
to make the fight. It is understood
that the present intention is to take the
case directly to the United States Court.
It would he necessary to get out an,
injunction if the case is not takeo there
before June or July. If the case is taken
to the Federal Court there is a good
chance of another conflict of jurisdic
tion, if Governor Tillman still insists
that he will have the law carried out at
all hazards. Judge Golf or Judge Eii
monton may again have to tell the
sherifis to leave certain things alone.
Charleston seems to have had a pret
ty hard time of it trying to suit every
body. There was complaint from cer
ain quarters that the association would
not employ counsel that had been
recommended. T be trouble seemed to
be that too many places had counsel to
suggest, and the executive committee
thought that it would be best to select
the counsel from Charleston, where
they could all be together for consulta
tion. Edgetield, it is said, wanted Ex
Governor Sheppard em ployed; Georae
tovn said it would contribute $100
provided that Mr. Dozier would be
employed; the Greenville dealers
wanted Earle and Mooney; the Colum
bia association wanted Judge Melton
employed, and so it went on until the
executive committee had itself in a
tangle and came to the conclusien that
the association could not undertake to
employ a doze.i lawyers. The associa
tion has not yet decided what course it
will employ in relation to Major Ham

now about the signing of petitions for

general opinion is that, notwithstand

I had heard of Hood's Sarsaparilla as a good
medicine, so I bought a bottle. When I had
taken it, I found it had done me some good, sc
I continued till I had taken three bottles. I im
proved so rapidly that I could walk out of doors
and have steadily gained till I am at wort
again and use my hammer and trowel onct
more. Th; physicians told me flive years ago thal
I would not live three years, and all the neigh
bors think It a very strange thing to see me al
work again. It is the strength given me b3
Hood's Sarsaparilla which cnablC me to do it?
