NE WBERRY. S. C.
MESMY. JULY 19, 1893.
THs T.OOKS BAD.
The State's spies have broke loose in
Charlestoa and on Saturday the first
arrest was made by them of a man for
selling whiskey after the Dispensary
law had gone into effect. The party
hauled in is a man named Chicco. No
doubt the accounts of the affair in the
newspapers are overdrawn, but the fol
lowing is taken from the Sunday News
and seems to be a statement of Chicco
Chicco called at the News and Cou
rier office last night and requested that
the following statement should be pub
lished so that the Christian commuuity
of Charleston may see how outrage
ously he has been treated by the officers
of the law:
"About 10.30 in the morning, said
he, some seventeen men came into my
store, ransacked the bar, but found
nothing but rice beer. I took them up
stairs and showed them all the rooms
except my bed room, in which my
wife was lying in bed at the time in a
delicate condition, when any disturb
ance would be dangerous to her. The
door was locked. The constables de
manded that the door be opened, and
threatened that if it were not opened
they would break it down and drag
her and all other women on the prem
ises to the guard house. They ran
sacked the bed room and found no
"In the next room were some liquors
and wine and beer that had been sold
before the first of July to N. Fontana
and to A. Gardla. The constables took
it all away and then took all the cigars
and maccaroni, breaking open the
cigar boxes and filling their pockets.
I missed a gold watch and chain that
was behind the bar also.
"My wife is very sick and Dr:Simons
and a midwife will give certificates to
that effect. The fright occasioned by
the rough entrance of seventeen men
in her bed room and the threat to drag
her to the Guard House made her
Now this looks bad. This man
should not bave violated the law but
because he did and did sell a little beer,
we see no reason why his family should
be outraged and treated in this way by
those whose duty it is to see that the
law is enforced.
These same spies who arrested him
had gone to his place and induced him
to sell them the beer for the purpose of
entrapping him. He should not have
been taken in, but when once caught,
such treatment as here described does
not sound nice to a free and a liberty
loving_ people, to a people who have
been taught that a man's house is his
castle, and all that sort.
We do not believe the people ought
to violate this or any other law, but
we have an inexpressible contempt for
any such system of spies as has been
inaugurated to capture violators of the
law, and-any law which makes. it ne
cessary to have such system of espion
onage is unworthy to have a place on
the Statute books of a free and liberty
loving people. We do not believe the
people of South Carolina will long tol
erate such a system. If the law can
not be enforced without such a system,
,it should be blotted from the books
and the.page turned down forever. It
wiil not be a proud heritage to leave
We do not know what to think of
any man who will hire himself for a
few paltry dollars to act as aspy. He
must feel himself scarcely a freeman.
We are not advising the violation of
the law. We believe in respecting all
law, but when a law has to be enforced
by such a system, it is a poor recomn
mendation for the law to say the least.
"Governor Tillman has violated the
law and is liable to impeachment.
The Legislature appropriated nothing
for the use of the Dispensary. The
Governor has contracted debts in the
name of the State to the amount of
more than $300,000. The power of ap
'propriating money rests in the legisla
tive, and not the executive branch of the
We have heard pretty much the
same thing several times and must
confess that the stock of goods on hand
at the Dispensary and the outlay of
machinery and fixtures now used there,
represents to our mind many more dol
lars than the comparatively small ap
propriation of $50,000 in the Evans
The Governor has no right to use the
credit of the State in his Dispensary
purchases and it will soon be time for
our Executive to show his hand in this
matter. As Fagan Martin would say :
Watch ! Yes, watch the bill that goes
into the next Legislature and keep
your eagle eye on the amount asked
for Dispensary purposes. Then and
not until then can we correctly calcu
late upon what has been done-Col
We did not suppose there was or
could be any question about the State
or the Dispensary spending more
money than the appropriation of the
Legislature. Mr. Traxler told us that
one order-tbe first-amounted to over
$100,000 and the orders for glassware
were about $25,000. Why he said the
credit of the State was unbounded and
they could get all the goods they
wanted. There can be no doubt that
four or five times the legislative ap
propriation have been expended in fix
ing up the Dispensary and buying the
The Alliance will hold its annual
meeting now in a few days at Wal
halla. From all reports it would seem
that the Populist is going to be on top.
Gov. Tillman's strength with the Al
liance seems to be growing. Whether
that meanis he leans towards the Popu
list idea or not we will not say. Judg
ing by the past we would be forced to
conclude that the Governor would
bend his opinion whichever way was
necessary in order to have the influence
of the order to help him promote his
own ends. It evidently looks as if

Fort Hill is one place where the Ad
ministration ought not and does not
desire a dispensary. No liquor is to

The hearing of the cases against the
Charleston barkeepers was postponed
on Monday until yeterday.j
Senator Irby's reply to Gen. Farley
is exceedingly mild and dignified. This
we are glad to see. He brings witnesses
to substantiate his position, but inas
much as Capt. J. H. Tillman played so
important a part in the statements of
Senator Irby we wondered at the time
why the Senator did not secure his evi
dence on the question.
But now the Captain says he is going
to have something to say himself, and
intimates that he will make it lively
for the Senator. And then Gen. Farley
says he Is loaded too and will have
more to say. Well, things are getting
mighty lively and we contemplate
with some degree of wonder and amaze
ment how even the placid waters of
Reform are getting as muddy as Colum
bia 's drinking water and as turbulent
as a raging ocean. Some useless offices

It is none of our fight, and as we have
never been initiated into the grand
mysteries and beauties of Reform, we
can only view the battle from afar. In
fact abattle appears much more grand
and magnificent when so viewed any
way. In the meantime, we promise to
keep our readers posted on all the grand
attacks as well as the flank movements,
that is, in so far as we are able.
Let the next act proceed.
What we voted for-Prohibition.
What we were given-Dispensation.
W hat some of us asked for-Injunction.
What all of us will pay for-Litigation.
About year ago we heard some inti
mation that an ardent admirer was en
gaged in writing a history of the great
Reform movement. Latterly we have
heard nothing of it. Possibly he has
decided to call his work "The Rise and
Fall of Reform in South Carolina" and
is waiting just a little while until the
cycle is complete. We hope he will
not take as long as did Gibbon to write
the "Rise and Fall of the Roman Em
pire," for we are a little anxious to se
cure a copy of the new history. Will
son.,ebody who knows, tell us what has
become 6f this history.
That was a very ugly affair over in
Laurens last week, and the statements
so far made do not show up our United
States Senator Irby in a very favorable
light. We are sorry of this. Somehow
or other people have an idea that a
man occupying the position of Senator
Irby ought to be sort of an example, as
it were, to lesser mortals, but in this
case it looks as if he were aiding to
smother up a crime and one of the
most heinous nature. One for which
most ordinary mortals meet summary
death by hanging to the nearest limb.
It is too bad. Why should this man
go free anyway when others guilty of a
similar offense are speedily punished.
But the ugliest part of the whole af
fair is the writing by some one, and the
getting of poor, ignorant Mr. Fuller to
sign it, of a card in which he says the
whole thing was an incident, and an
old friend of the family had only been
guilty of a little indiscretion. If that
is true why should money be paid and
why should old man Davenport resign
and pull himself so speedily out of the
It is all very, very, bad and we are
very much surprised to see Senator
Irby one of a party trying to smother
the whole thing up.

THE "PAY BY WORK" IDEA A DELSION
-A WARNING TO YOUNG 31ES.
CLE5.SO . COLLEGE, July 15.-The
attendance at Clemson is nearing the
three hundred and fifty mark and has
already grown to be as large as many
of the trustees cared for. It was thoughit
that for the first year it would be better
to have a somewhat smaller attend
ance. But Clemson has caught the
people and it is on the road to high
success. In previous articles I have
attempted to show what there really isi
at "Clemson on the Hill." It might be.
well just here to indicate, for the bene
fit of those who contemplate taking a
course at Clemson, what it will cost
lhem, what they will be expected to
study, and principally that it is a finan
cial impossibility to pay your way
through Clemson by working on the
farm or in tile shops. It cannot be
done. Jt need not be attempted. The
faculty do not want you to try it, and
indeed President Craighead will advise
you not to try it, but to remain at
home, work for wages anl then come
to Clemson. Do not go there with a
few dollars-not enough to buy books
-and expect to work your way through.
Remember that your time has to be
spent in class room work and study,
and that two or three hours' work for
"wages" is as much as you can do.
Clemson's course is well worth the
money, and while the working system
is a help, it cannot be counted on for

What are the facts in the case? An

)ffice of honor and trust; a man se

tnd model young lady teachers-that
man accused and the accusations
>roven beyond the shadow of a doubt
)f crossing the sacred threshold of an
iumble citizen and attempting by vio
ence to destroy the chastity of his
oung and pretty wife only about six
een years of age. This young woman
vas once the pupil of this old depraved
chool commissioner, whose name is L.
P. Davenport, which name he has
ried to shadow with a dark and black
tigma, for the name an~1 family are
tmong the best in Laurens county.
The victim of this assault, Mrs. S.
W. Fuller, testified in substance that
Davenport came to her home while her
iusband was absent working on his
'arm, and she was preparing to get
linner. That he hitched his horse

o come and go back there and he and
Irby would settle the matter. They
eturned to Shaw's house and Shaw
ind Irby held a consultation.
They (Shaw and Irby) then told the
party, Fuller & Co., to retire and de
.ide what would satisfy them in the
matter. Fuller & Co., after consulta
;ion, decided that $100 hush money
would satisfy all parties, pay for the
ittempted violation of the virtue of his
wife. and all things would work as
merry as the mnairiage bell. Shaw and
[rby agreed to the proposition and
said cash $50 and executed a note
igned ny Shaw and endorsed by Irby
'or $50 more to pay damages. This
20te has been publicly exhibited signed
>y J. D. M. Shaw and endorsed by J.
[U. M. Irby.
But, unfortunately for the parties
mgaged in this disreputable transac
;ion, there is another woman in the
sase-the old lady Benjamin-the girl
wife's mother. This old woman, God
less her, would submit to no such
irty, black, nasty, villanous sale of
2er daughter's honor and virtue. She
raised cain and has kept the whole
natter brewing and astewing until the
wole country is aroused and indigna
:ion meetings are being held.
An indignation rheetinig was held at
iount Pleasant last Wednesday after
2oon and resolutions were introduced
-equiring Davenport to resign his
>lice, leave the State in forty-eight
iours and never return. These resolu
ions accused Davenport of attempted
eduction, when from the testimony of
VIrs. Fuller the crime was attempted
1ape and nothing else. It is needless.
~o say that the chairman of the meet
ng, Oscar Cunningham, was a heart
tnd soul symipathizer of Irby, Shaw,
)avenport & Co. But the brave,
:hivalric manhood of Laurens county
was aroused, both Tillmanite and anti

A STATEMENT TO THE PUBLIC.
"I want to say to the public that as
damnaging rumors are being industri
ously circulated about an incident that
occurred at my house some days ago,
that the most of these rumors are lies
and have no foundation in facts. While
there was some indiscretion by an old
friend and teacher, both of myself and
wife, the matter has been satisfactorily
adjusted between us by mutual friends.
We are satisfied, and think the public
should be. So far as my receiving any
money in this matter is concerned, I
will say that I made no demand for
money. My father and father-in-law
fixed that ; and as I had left it to them
I accepted their settlement.
