TIU PASSING OF CRUM.
The statement has come from Wash
ington that Crum, the negro who has
been so prominently mentioned in con
nection with the position of collector of
the port of Charleston, will not be ap
pointed. The Washington correspond
ent of the News and Couries gives as a
reason that "the President, since re
turning from his Southern trip, has re
ceived information reflecting upon Dr.
Crum's political past, which renders
his appointment, heretofore accepted as
It seems that the President, as soon
as he returned from his Mississippi bear
hunt, called upon all who opposed
Crum's selection to give reasons sup
porting their position. Among the ob
jections to the appointment urged was
"that Crum went to the Minneapolis
National Convention (held in 1892) as
an anti-Harrison man, and while there
made a deal with the Harrison mana
gers by which he was promised the
postmastership in Charleston in return
for his political services if he voted for
Harrison." Crum three months later
was nominated by President Harrison
for the position, but the nomination
was so' vigorously opposed in the sen
ate by the friends of the defeated
Blaine, that it was finally withdrawn.
Crum, of course, denies the charge,
but his opponents and those in a posi
tion to know state emphatically that
there is no probability of his being ap
It is thought by some that the real
r:ason for the President's decision not
to appoint Crum is, not the charges
that have been brought against him,
but that the President, during his visit
to Charleston during the Exposition in
the early part of this year, made a
promise to the Charleston people,
through representative business men,
that he would give heed to their wishes
in the matter of appointments, and
that he would not place negroes in
prominent positions in Charleston
against the wishes of the Charleston
people. Whatever may be the reason,
the people of Charleston and the peo
ple of the whole State are to be con
gratulated upon the fact that the im
portant position of collector of the
Charleston port will not be filled by a
Capt. John M. Patrick, of Anderson,
will be assistant adjutant and inspector
* general under Gen.' Frost. Capt. Pat
* rick in the last campaign was one of
Gen. Frost's opponents. He is a pleas
ant gentleman and well versed in mili
tary tactics. In the hands of Gens.
Frost and Patrick the business of the
adjutant and inspector- general's office
will not suffer.

BACHMAl CHAPEL LETTER.
All the News Around Bachman Chapel and
Union Academy Intetestingly
Told By T. J. W.
When we picked up The Herald that
contained our last letter we were made
to think of the preacher who preached
entirely from manuscript. He looked
down. as he thoughr. upon the third
page and cahed out ti:irdliy soie ihrec
or four times, when a little gi,l .i,:i1 g
near by said: "I sai thirdly go out of
the window a few m:nutes ago." So
this must have been the case with our
last letter, as about half of it failed to
appear. Boys, be careful, and don't let
any more blow out of the window, as it
often causes me to forfeit my word.
There have been more oats sown this
fall than was a year ago, but some less
wheat. The crops are about gathered
and our cribs have more corn and peas
in them than for many past years. The
cotton crop turned out a few more
bales than we once thought. Potatoes
in abundance, plenty of turnips and
sour krout, with several good hogs to
kill. So don't you see the county is in
a pretty good shape to make another
I don't believe I ever heard such a
demand for pigs as is now. But it's
no wonder. This is what I predicted
last summer when the shoats were all
being killed up and wasted in barbecues.
I told you all that woeful waste made
woeful want. After all this waste, if
there has been anybody benefitted it's
the successful candidates. So we sug
gest that they meet together at once
and order one or two car loads of pigs
to supply this much needed demand.
Mr. Editor, we make you chairman of
this order. So you must call your mem
bers together and act at once.
Miss Eoline Werts, sister of Superin
tendent of Education E. S. Werts, is
teaching the Jolly Street School.
There were quite a number of young
folks at our home last Saturday
night to enjoy a musical entertainment.
We delight in being with them when
they act with such good manners and
behavior. It makes us think of the
days when we were young.
Our school will observe Thanksgiving
day; or at least the children will cease
from their daily studies and hunt rab
bits, birds and romp around in general.
It's a piy we couldn't all meet in our
respective places of worship and raise
our united voices in thanks and praise
to God for his manifold blessings. This
would look like Thanksgiving indeed.
But it seems that the church has lost
sight of the intention of the day, and
the devil is claiming it for a great big
celebration of his own. Or perhaps our
preachers think their members are en
titled to one big day every now and
then in the service of the devil.
Mr. John I. Franklin is visiting his
uncle Dave Franklin, of Molohon sec
tion, a few days this week.
Prof. D. A. Quattlebaum, in com
pany with Mr. Luther Moore and sis
ters, Misses Bessie and Mary, came
over last Mturday and spent the night
with his parents and friends.
Miss Lilla Baker, of Long Lane, spent
last week in this section visiting friends
and relatives. Miss Lilla is an excel
lent lady and we enjoyed her company
very much. Mr. Jno. Baker, brother
of Miss Lilla, also spent Sunday and
Sunday night in this section.
Old Aunt Katie Gribben is seriously
ill, not expected to live many days.
Miss Mary Sligh and Mrs. Mattie
Sligh, of Slighs, visited Mr. J. K. Epps
and family last Saturday night.
Mr. J. E. Long is spending a few
days this week in the uppei- part of the
Our young friend, Mr. Clarence Sum
mers, of Newberry, passed through this
section last Sunday. Its a little un
common to see Clarence in this section.
Pop yo.ur whip young friend, we are not
going to tell on you just now.
I have wondered for some time why
it was that my old frienk Sigma had be
come dumbfounded. Now, my old
friend, if you don't come over and tell
me the whole story, I will let the cat
out of the sack.
Yes, I almost forgot, Mr. Editor,
when must I come after my pigs?
It's a pity that there's to be a con
test between Messrs. Wicker and Ruff
over the honor Peadea, which was given
Mr. M. L. Wicker at a recent election
held in that section. If we understand
right, Mr. Wicker is fully entitled to
wear the honor, and we take the liberty
to make the following suggestion: that
this election stand confimed and the
citizens of this community att their next
meeting confer upon Mr. D. A. Ruff the
honor of H. and H., which by interpre
tation means Hog and Hominy. We
believe Mr. Ruff is fully entitled to this
honor, for according to the last a*ccount
he had taken in 26 loads of corn and
was not done gathering. We believe
this will be satisfactory to Mr. Ruff,
as he is a reasonable man and knows
it is no use for one man to~wear all the
