The Herald and News is very glad o
to learn that our newly appointed
Postmaster, Mr. Jas. R. Davidson, has y
contracted with Messrs Pool and i
Sebnmpert for the erect ion of a new
brick building on the corner of Friend
and Caidwell streets for the postoffice.
They propose to put up a nice and sub
stantial brick building especially adap
ted and fitted out for the postoffice.
The lot is most admirably located,
being on the corner of two of the prin- a
cipal streets of the town, centerally P
located and convenient to the buies
portion. And within a few feet of C
where the postoffice was located for
twenty-five or thirty years, and just I
where it ought to be now. They will C
begin to-day tearing down the old
wooden building preparatory to com
mencing work on the new one. The 6
new building will be pushed rapidly

L.at Friday night we had the eNqisit
ntleasure of hearing Gen. 1. 1.. Gorden 1h
liver his famous lecture on "Thie J.a-'
I )a-s of the Confederace." It was lCon.I
(ioubt, the most sublime, grand and elo
(cent lecture that I ever had the pleas
ure of listening to. To attempt to describe
it would be to attempt to paint. the sun's
rays on canvas;. I do sincerely hope th

Prosperity is now the best cotton mar
ket in South Garolina. Recently two
cotton dealers in Columbia sent samples
of lots of cotton to Mr. Kenneth Baker
here who promptly paid the price asked
for them. We may expect to see Charles
ton selling cotton here next. Nothing
like having live men to make a live town.
Next Friday there is to he a "grand
rally of the faithful" at the Alliance Ware
House, looking to the end of establishing
an organ to grind out special music for
special political demagogues. No heretics
are invited -only the faithful. The call
is in the form of a circular letter emanat
ing from the Rev. J. A. Sligh. The in
vestment is to bring such glittering re
turns that i. was thought politic by "Ir.
Sligh not to publish the call in the county
papers, as these papers might expose his
little subtle game and open the eyes of
'the faithful," and attack his ultwar
ranted, unjust and even his incorrect as
sertions. Oh, no: it would not do to
nublish this call in the county papers, but
this leader of "the faithful" circulates his
circular to the faithful alone. None but
"the faithful" are to enter the gates of the
Ware House. None but "the faithful"
are to have stock in this lucrative invest
ment. There is certainly no objections
to the establishing of an organ here or
an- where else, but we do earnestly pro
test against the plan that Mt. Sligh is
seeking to use. He has organized a svs
teni of boycotting against Mr. R. L.
Whites, a young man who has just at
tained to his majority, and who has just
begun life on his own account by securing
the management of the Press and Report
er. Mr. Sligh has advised subscribers to
"drop' that paper, "stop it" at once.
Don't deny this Mr. Sligh, I hrve the
proofs. Before there was a single issue of
the paper. Mr. Sligh asserted that "it is
another stab at the farmer." Don't deny
it, Mr. Sligh, you said it, and you must
have known it was incorrect when vou
uttered it. Now I cannot conceive why a
man of Mr. Sligh's position and influence
would endeavor by word and act to crush
and ruin the aspirations and prospects of
a young man beginning life, who has
never injured Mr. Sligh or any one else,
politically, physically or any other man
ner. One not knowing Mr. Sligh would
naturally suppose from the very nature of
his calling that he would be a friend to
any young man who was struggling for a
livelihood, instead of trying to crush him
for life. Mavbe there is a day of retribu
tion coming.' We are not 'happy and
serene wvhen we contemplate such acts.
Our young people enjoyed the snow
very much. Our sherifl is too portly to
enjoy sleighinug, but he has a brother
who enjoys it very much. This brother
had a nice time with his best girl Mon
day morning, and concluded to visit
Newberry on his sleigh Monday eve
ning. The sheriff was coming from to
wards town and met his brother with
his sleigh. ThA horse was very tired
and the brother was walking, driving
his horse. WVhen he saw the sheriff he
got in the buggy and passed him and
said, see how nice; but he borrowed a
buggy to bring him home that night,
and now you can't get that brother to
talk about sleighing.

One of our crippled widowers called

wr.-Latest U. S. Gov't Report.
Still a Few Other Anomaies of Out
To the Editor of The Herald and
News: I pointed out two weeks ago
some of the anomalies of our situation
here in South Carolina tinder our so
called "Reform" or "Refawn" admin
istration, in the extravagant remuner
ation paid to our official bar-keepers,
compared with what we pay those en
gaged in the much more honorable
and useful cal'ing of educating our
Last week I called attention to our
condition of "enthroned anarchy," as
Dr. Curry so appropriately termed it
in speaking not long since before the
Georgia Legislature, as illustrated by
the frequent outrageous lynchings tak
ing pl:ce in our State, without any
attempt whatever on the part of our
so-called "Reform" Governor to pre
vent them, or to punish the guilty.
Nay more, that in one case he had
actually turned over a poor negro to
the blood-thirsty mob for brutal exe
cution, thus soiling his official hands
with the poor fellow's blood. But, as
I then stated, this is not all, and per
haps not even the worst. These lynch
ings have been for the most part the
work of individuals, for which only
those engaged in them could be held
responsible, morally or legally. But
what shall we say of the outrages and
murders being so often committed by
Gov. Tillman's whiskey spies, acting
under his immediate and direct orders
-the breaking open of ladies' trunks
and parcels at our railroad depots-the
slapping of white women in the face
by drunken ruffians, and their imme
diate pardon by our "Reform" Gov
ernor when justly condemned therefor
-the invasion of private houses in the
dead hours of midnight and the shoot
ing down of their inmates is they at
tempt to escape or show signs of de
fending their premises? Can we con
sole ourselves with the idea that these
too are the lawless acts of individuals,
and that we are not at least morally
responsible for them? Are we not as
cit izens responsible for our Straits and
Irbys, and Latimers and Talberts, who
disgrace us in the Halls of Congress?
And if our Governor, either direetly or
through his subordinates, openly and
flagrantly violates the Constitution
and laws of the State, are we not all as
citizens more or less responsible for it,
for having elected such an unfit man
to the office? And if even our Judges
on the Bench encourage such lawless
ness by releasing the criminals on al
most nominal bail, are we not all
to some extent responsible for elect
ing legislators capable of selecting
such men for the Bench? The judi
ciary especially should be kept pure
and upright and independent; and in
no respect perhaps has Tillmanism
brought greater or more lasting evil
and reproach on our State than by de
grading this most important depart
ment of the government to mere fac
The evils of a bad Executive or a bad
Legislature can be remedied at the
next election, as has recently been
done in New York and New Jersey.
But the evils of had Judges are much
more lasting, not only because they
usually serve for longer terms, and not
only because they establish precedents
that live after them, but also, and
worst of all, because they undermine
public confidence in the very source of
justice, and prepare the way for law
lessness. I repeat, then, that the de
gradation of the judiciary is one of thbe
greatest and most lasting evils that
can befall any civilized community.
And this has been done b Tillmanism
in our State, by the election of faction
These and many other anomalies of
like character might be mentioned as
ebaracteristic of our situation under
the present ."dominant element," and
which every intelligent and reflecting
citizen must admit and regret. But
the question is, whbat are we going to
do about it? A re we going to sit quiet
ly and nurse our hands and do noth
ing? Do we expect to get rid of Till
manism and all its attendant evils~ of
strife and bloodshed by sitting quietly
a-straddle of the fence, undecided orn
which side to get down?" 'Would we
have got rid of "Radicalism" in this
way in 1876? -Just as it was necessary
to organize a fight to the death the cor
rupt "Radical" ring then, it is now ne
cessary to organize and fight the or
ganization that is responsible for the
deplorable condition of affairs in our
State. Prudence and good judgment
should be exercised, of course, but we
are very greatly mistaken, in my opin
ion, if we expect ever to restore peace
and harmony and respectable govern
ment other wise than by organization
and by energetic action at the proper
time. We might have peace p)erh]aps
by blind and abject submission to our
petty (Czar, but it would be "the peace
of Warsaw." Do we desire peace on
such conditions? A I:R'nsa.

3I~. E~roT :: For t!! tirs* titue in
ny life I at -u opt to write a few lines
for a newsl-1er. I have always re
' gardcd newsp:rper writing a prett'
noor job. But 1 hope if 1 make a mflis
ake the public will excuse mo-, for any
of us is liable to make mistakes. Now,
riids, Imly reasons for writing these
few lines are as foliows:
You are ali aware that lr. ipers
has been turned out of tho Pres- and
Reporter ofiee as editor. Now, fri'ndk,
when the owners of the Press and Re
porter dismissed Mr. Capers w ithout a
cause, I could not stand it any longer,
but thought I would write a few lines
in his defenee. When we study the
matter as we should, any sane man
must come to the couclusion that Mr.
Capers was turned out for political rea
My solution to the question of his
being disniissed is, that by making the
Press and 1Reptrter an anti paper, the
Reformers of Newberrv County would
he compelled to read an anti paper or
else they would bv debarred from read
ing any of their own county papers at
all. Now, Reforniers, study the mat
ter and see if I :itn not right.
My dear owners of the Reporter, you
must recolh et that t he Reformers made
the Press and Reporter what it is to
day, and when you try such an under
handed game as that you can well im
agine that we will take it as an insult.
For a set of men to turn out a man like
Mr. Capers, and bring a man out of
The State office in Columbia to edit a
Reform paper, is enough to make the
blood boil in any true Reformer's
My dear antis, you may heat us in
the next election, but you can never do
it in such a way as that. You are try
ing to deprive us of seeing our side
of the question; you want to keep
us in the dark. That has been your i
game all the time; but when you judge
us to be a set of fools, you are >adly
mistaken. The very fact of your try
ing to keep us in the dark is proof
enough that we are right and you
How long, oh ! Reformers, can
we stand such as this ? Our fa
thers did not teach us to uphold any
such work as this. God forbid that
because men have a little rroney, they
should use it in such a manner as that.
Honorable men, teach your children
to ever look dowu upon such work.
And now to you who have made the
change. We do not wish you or your
paper any iiarrn. We have always re
spected tbe people of Prosperity, and
especially some of the owners of the
Reporter, but I think that you have
treated us wrong. You knew that we
were strong supporters of the Reporter,
and you a'so knew that we believe,!
Mr. Capers to be a true friend to the
farmers and laboring class of people,
and I firmly believe that is one of
your reasons for dismissing him. But
we would have you understand, that
because we do not own large stores
and live in palaces, is no reason that
we should be forced to read a newspa
per that speaks against the principles
that we are fighting fer. You may
sell our lands and refuse to lend us a
helping hand, but you can never buy
our principles or make us uphold a
doctrine that we believe to be wrong.
Our fathers who laid down their life
blood on many a hard fought battle
field were true to their colors. Their
heroic courage and love for principle
still cling to us. We are true to our
country and to our friends. Self-inter
est nor the greed for money *:an make
us uphold a wrong cause.
Now, friends, whbat I have wvritten
is simply in defence of Mr. Capers and
the Reformers, and not because I have
any ill will against Mr. Whites. I
know nothing about him, but I do
know that his father has been a bitter
anti; and as long as Mr. R. L. Whites
has been working for The State I don't
see how lhe could be otherwise.
