NEWBERRY. S. C.
It is a very strange thing how eagerly
most people hunger and thirst, as .it
were, to bear and keep going, anything 1
that is bad about their fellow beings.
It seems to be a part of our fallen na- 1
tures to love such things. Most peo
ple are much more ready and willing
to circulate evil than good reports
about their neighbors. Before we
speak evil of cur neighbors or circulate
evil reports c cerning t hen,we should
be careful of the ficts. Otherwise
irreparable injury might be done an
innocent person. An evil report once
started can never be overtaken.
Just the other day we read the fol
lowing story which points a very
good moral, and it would have been
much easier for the woman to have
gathered together all the stray feathers
than for a falsehood once started to be
The pious Philip Neri was once vis
ited by a lady who had been circulat
ing some slanders. He bade her go to s
the market, buy a chicken just killed I
and still covered with feathers, and
walk a certain distance, plucking the
feathers as she went. The woman did I
as she was directed, and returned anx
ious to know the meaning of the in
junction. "Retrace your steps," said
Philip, "and gather up one by one, all
the feathers you have scattered."
"I cast the feathers carelessly away,"
said the woman, "and the wind ear
ried them in all directions."
"Well, my child," replied Philip,
"so it is with slander. Like the feath
ers which the u iad has scattered, they
have been wafted in many directions.
Call theni back now if you can."
A very wholesome and useful lesson
may be learned from this simple illus
tration if we would all just try the
least to learn it.
Governor Tilmnim seems to be very '
hard to please. When Judge Simon
ton decides a c-l, and his decision is
against the Sta.e, Gov. Tillman abuses
him and calls him a corporation judge,
and then when he decides a case in
favor of the State, our Governor con
tinues to abuse him, and it seems to be
impossible for Judge Siwonton to
please him, and, in fact, we do not sup
pose JudgeSimonton is bothering him
self much about trying to please any 1
one in the making of his decisions. t
He decides the cases before him accord
ing to his understanding of the law and
does not bother himself about pleasing1
The Oeouzee News and Greenville
News have agreed on a compromise
State ticket for 1S94. It is found in
another colu'mn. The Herald and News
cannot endorse that ticket 'n full even
as a compromise.
There are some men on the ticket
that would suit us, but then it is too
soon to be talking about State officers
for 1894. Let us talk about planting
corn, or who is to get the Federal
patronage, or planting watermelons, or
gardens, or anything, but let us have a
rest for at least a little while from this
mna'.er of the State ticket for 1894.<
We have it from good authority that
the present State administration will
not have much of a pull on the Fed
erai patronage for this State. MJr.
Cleveland will not enter into the fac
tional fight in this State, but in mik
ing flis appointments he will take the
advice of his friends, which seems .to
us to be quite natural, and, in fact, the r
proper thing for him to do.]
"Say what you will, the city or town (
* which has the largest manufacturingi
interests is the place that is getting
there with both feet." That is very r
true, and the town that does not build'
manufacturing enterprises is the town C
that is getting left and will continue to
be left. Do you see the point?
There seems to be anything but peace
and quiet in the Tillman political
household at present. MIr. Geo. WV.i

the great Shell manifesto, does not now

Senator Irby is remaining very
closely at his post in Washington E
these days. But then there is no cam
paign going on in South Carolina now.i
In fact the campaign has been trans r
ferred to Washin~gton, and our junior
Senator believes in looking after cam-t
paigns and the offices.t
The Sumter Herald is hard to satisfy. r
We have had two terms of Governore
*Tillman, and now the Herald wants
him for a third term. But Gov. Till- a
man, no doubt, wants somet~thing r
higher and bigger.
Every South Carolinian will be glad f
to know thbat the State's debt has been I'
arranged for and the bonds taken. Wet
are glad that Governor Tiliman and ri
Treasurer Bates have succeeded in
placing thbe bonds.

of those persons who held positions

DISASTER AT ERSKINE.
The Hanelsome New College Bui.dlng Par
[Special to The State. I
DUE WEST, March 10.-Erskine's
3 new college building was nearing com
f pletion. Day by day its beauty and
. attractiveness were growing upon all
who looked upon it. Everybody was
looking forward to having our con
mencement exercises in its large and
commodious auditorium in June. All
. day yesterday the painters and carpen
r ters were at work. They stopped at 6
p. m. At 7.30 p. m. a loud crash was
heard by many people of the town,
i and those who beard it knew that the
sound came from Erskine College.
On hastening to the building a terri
ble condition of things was to be seen
inside the large hall. In the gymna
sium under the hall are several brick
pillars laid upon concrete and capped
with stone, and upon these pillars rests
several iron posts running through the
S hall to the second story. These posts
I support large iron beams. On one of
these beams is built a solid brick fire
wall, twelve inches thick, clear to the
roof. It is supposed that this wall was
t too heavy. At any rate, something
I gave way, and brick wall, iron beams,
ceiling and flooring came crashing
' through to-the ground.
A few of the rooms are wrecked. In
- addition to this, the observatory tower
has lost a few bribk, is cracked on two
sides and is out of plumb.
It it such a; mass of wreckage that
the exact trouble cannot be ascertained
definitely. Other parts of the building
are as good as ever.
The general opinion is that it will
not take less than $5,00 to repair the
It is fortunate that the accident oc
curred at night, for if it had happened
I in daylight, more than likely some one

No Discrimination Against Newspaper
Men in the Rush for Office.
WASHINGTON, March, 13.-The re
port that President Cleveland has told
the Congressmen that he did not in
tend to appoint newspaper men to office
for the reason that he might be accused
of "subsidizing the press," does not
hold good. Congressmen Dockery, D'
Armond, Cobb, Burns and Morgan, of
Mi:ssouri, called on the President to
day for theexpress purpose of ascertain
ing the truth about "the no journalist
need apply" rule. Mr. Dockery asked
Mr. Cleveland pointblank whether it
was true or not that he had discrimi
nated against newspaper men, and the
answer came, just as straight aq the
question that there was no such inten
From this, and other statements
made by the President, the delegation
went away satisfied that the story had
arisen through some misconstruction
of other statements, and Mr. Dockery
is very firmly convined that the report
arose from the remark, attributed to
Postmaster-General Bissell, in sub
stance, that he would not give post
offices to editors. And Mr. Bissell's
statement to Mr. Dockery amounted
only to this: That he would not give
fourth class postmasterships to men
who could not give their whole atten
tion to the work of the office, and this
rule would apply to every body, includ
ing editors, who would not relinquish
their other business whIle transacting
that of the government.
Several newspaper men were among
those who called at the White House
this morning in the interest of their
applications. One of these was Charles
SH. T. Ta.ylor, of Kansas City, Kansas,
a colored mian who edits a newspaper.
He came with Senator Martin, who
spoke a good word for his candidacy for

THE TAX RETURNs.
County Auditors Occupy a Very Delicate
Position under the Recent Law.
[Special to Sunday News.]
COcLUMA, March 11.-The county
auditors will soon have to ask them
selves what they can do to satisfy the
Comptroller-General and the taxpay
ers. The county boards of equalization
will meet next week and after they
have taken action on the tax returns
the auditors will have a say as final
judges. Heretofore the action of the
county boards has been accepted as
conclusive, but now there seems to be
a disposition to have the auditors act
independently and raise assessments
wherever it is thought proper to do so.
In Richland County the township
board of assessors has just recomlmended
to the county auditor that the bank
returns be made upon a basis of two
thirds of thbe value of the stock as re
turned. This idea will not exactly suit
the Comiptroller's office, and the same
old tight will be renewed.

seemls to be an open breach. Just in

is gaining ground every day. It is
reported that Mr. Talbert and some of
his friends held a conference here last
week about the matter. Mr. Talbert is
not saying anything about the rumor
at present, but it is certain that he is i
not "pulling with" Governor Tillman
nnd his friends.
IN UNION THERE IS STRENGTH.
The Alliance has no Notion of a Sectional
[Special to Sunday News.]
COLUMBIA, March 11.-The sugges
tion that the Southern and Western
branches of the Farmers' Alliance
should be run as distinct organizations
does not seeni to have very many
friends in this neighborhood among
Alliance men. In the first place they
think such a scheme altogether improb
able and far less desirable. The idea is
"pooh-poobed" by the Alliance men
and they insist that the plau is being
almost entirely advocated by disgrun
tied Alliance men, who have not re-_
ceived the political preferment they
imagined would accompany their lead
ership in the Alliance. Editor Bowden,
who Is at the head of the official organ
of the movement, said that none of the
friends of the Alliance were favorable
to any division. %ather than contract
there is a dispos,.ion to expand, and
there is now common talk of having
one grand agricultural organization
out of the three Orders. The Husban

taken charge of the secretaryship of

say that there is very little activity in

campaigning. The Alliance Exchange
is said to be doing a verygood business.

I am receiving and opening up
daily the largest and handsomest
line of Spring Clothing, Hats and
Gents' Furnishings, and staple patterns
in Gent$ and Boys' Clothina. Having
made a specialty of this branch of busi
ness for more than twenty years past,
and not handling stock, I can safely
assert that I am better equipped to
serve you in this line than any other
house in this State. There is 'another
item which is worthy your careful con
sideration, and that is that I always
endeavor to give you a dollar's worth
for a dollar, and when you see my line
of suits at $7.50 $10.50 $12.50 and $15
you will wonder how they can be sold E
at such figures. It is easily explained.
Doing the largest Clothing business of
any house in South tarolina I am en
abled to buy my stock at a closer mar
gin than smaller houses, and when you
make your purchases from me you get
the benefit of it.
If you are not already one of my cus
tomers, who are numerous and located
in every portion of South Carolina, I
want to make one of you, and guaran- f
tee satisfaction and prompt attention. r
I make a specialty of Ext ra S'ze, Stout
and Slim suite, and keep a full line of
them in stock.
If you cannot visit Columbia, write
me for what you want, and your crder
will receive prompt attention.
