HANNA'S PENSION BILL.
Negroes Everywhere Much Excited Over it.
There is a Touch of Sarcasm in
Editorial Approbation of
the South.
[News and Courier.)
With newspapers in all parts of
the South commending this remark.
able bill, introduced by senator
Hanna to pension ex slaves, the older
negroes are living high in hopes that
they will yet be paid for the years
they served in bondage. An Associat
ed Press dispatch from Birmingham,
saying that a camp of Confederate
Veterans had approved the measure,
has led the colored population to be.
lieve that things are coming up, and
already shrewd negroes are ready to
jump in and get a graft by collect.
ing funds to help the lobbyists in
Washington. The leaders of the
race have got sense enough to know
that. there isn't a chauce of any such
bill getting through Congress. They
have made this known to the army
of blacks, but it hi s not quieted the
rabble.
There is a tinge of sarcasm in some
editorial utterances. That such r
bill will ever pass is not for a mo.
u ent considered seriously. Every
body is willing to jolly it along, but.
when it comes to earnest support the
country will hardly stand for it.
The public has taken the view
that Senator Hanna is making a bid
for the negro vote, and to get solid
with the race he is willing for the
treasury department to be tapped to
the limit. That is just what the no
groes would like to see. They will
stand up to a man for the Ohio states.
man if he will push the measure, but.
it is doubtful if it will ever be heard
of again.
For years the pension system in
the South has been notorious. In
South Carolina hundreds and hun
dreds :>f negroes who never saw a
gun except on a rabbit hunt are
- "living easy," simply because they
claim to have fought in the Federal
army. The pension conditions got
so bad that a delegation of agents
was sent to this State to clear it up,
and the jails now hold their share of
black men who played for good stakes
and lost. Not. a few ministers were
caught, and it always developed that
the ,on with the education was the
first to be trapped as pension sharks.
After working for several years the
pension department has been able to
rest on its oars, and in Charleston,
Beaufort arid Gieorgetowvn counties
the work is not as hard as it was 'at
the beginning. The pension sharks
have been driven to cover.
The records of the District Court
tell the story of the complicated sy s
tern. To make a genieral law pro.
viding for fees for every ner wvho
was a slave would require the entire
pension dep)art mont's service ini Char.
leston County alone.
It has been said1 that Senator Han
na could not adlvocate the bill with
out laughing. He evidently was
trying to dodge the responsibility
when he introduced thle measuilre "by
request.'' He did niot want. to stand
for it.
"T'he whIolo t hinag is a game~ of
. politics,'' said the wise uan last
night. '"This Hainnra boom is mere
ly intended to keep the public eye
on Mark and Roosevelt. Other lie
publicans will be scared out anid at
the proper time your Uncle .\,ircus
will dnck, leaving the nominat ion
for iJoosevelt. These t wo politicians
are playinrg together. ~1The negroes
had begun to think thait the t imre was
ripe for their recoguiution by t hn Ad
miniist rat ion. Thley regarded thle
appointment of D)r Crumii as the open
ing wedge. T1he iundignatiorn, how
ever, was so great that Crurm had to
be scratched, and, to keep on solid
terms, Senator Ha.nna, funny ian
that he is, sent in a bill to pension
t he negroes. Don't you suppose t ha~t
talk of that kind wilhl keep the black
voters in line ? W hoen thne time comes
Hanina will step aside, Rtoosevelt will
seek the nominat ion withbout serious
opposit ion and tbo' colobred brothers
will support. him. They will still
dream of pensions. W'ell, they've
got another dreaim coming. Thley're
(lead nes any way yon tnko then,
and it they are dupes enough to ox
pect a bounty, well, let them expect
it. The dreams wi.. do them good.
This country would never submit to
the payment of millions of dollars to
negroes, who don't even pay poll tax.
And yet you can gamble that they'll
contribute to any old funds that are
started to push the bill through Con.
gross."
In some sections the bill has been
taken seriously. The fact that it.
would bring millions of dollars to
the South and make hundreds of old
negroes self-sustaining has made
business people believe that it is
worthy of consideration.
Secretary Richardson, of the Four
States Immigration League, with
headquarters in New Orleans, has
sent out the following letter, copies
of which have been received in Char
leston. It is addressed to commerci
al and industrial organizations:
The Four States Immigration
League, representing the States
named above, was organized in New
Orleans January 14 and 15 and elect
ed me secretary, and I feel it is my
duty to call your immediate attention
and ask for special action relative to
the bill introduced Februaly 3 in the
United States Senate by Senator M.
A. Hanna granting pensions and
bounties to all ex slaves who were
freed by President Lincoln.
This bill provides that persons
over 50 years of age and less than
00, whether male or female, shall re
ceive a cash-bounty of $100 and a
pension of $8 per month; persons
between 60 and 70 years old, a boun
ty of $300 and a pension of $12 per
month; those over 70 years old, a
bounty of $500 and a pension of $15
per month. The bill further pro
vides for the payment of the bounty
and pension to relative who may be
charged with the care of ex-slaves.
The bill will make thousands of
the old colored people of. the South
self-sustaining and will add sever:d
millions of dollars to the capital of
the South.
The commercial organizations of
the four States of Louisiana, Texas,
Mississippi and Alabama have noth
ing whatever to do with the political
significance of Senator Hanna's mess
ure: that is a matter for the editorial
writers and politicians.
This bill makes independent a vast
number of people in the four States
who are now dependent, and it will
add a large amount of ready money
to each and every community in those
four States, and for that resaon I
take the liberty of presenting it to
the different bodies who are eligible
to membership in the Four States
Immigration League for such action
as they deem fit.

HEYWARD ON CHARLESTON.
Wants the Dispensary Law Enforced With
as Little Friction as Possible-The
Sottile Matter.
[News and Courier.]
The recent incident in Charleston
in connection with the shooting of a
horse by Constable Caulfield has
bro..ght the situation in Charleston
to a focus.
Chief Howie was in Columbia and
had a long talk with Gov. Heyward
regarding the entire affair which is
familiar to the readers The entire
situation was discussed, and, after
going over all of the evidence and
correspondence, it was decided to
severely reprimand Constable Caul
field for his reckless firing of a pistol
in the streets of Charleston; and he
was ordered to report for duty at
some other point in the State, there
by removing him from the Charles
ton field.
This assignment. to some other sta
tion had been made before the shoot.
ing occurred, and Chief Howie was
given instructions to give it unmedi
ate effect.
It was also developed in the testi
mony that Mr. Sottile was generally
regarded as a frequent violator of
the dispensary law, and that as such
violator that it was not at all unusual
for his wagons to get into similar en
counters with constables.
Gov. Heyward had a full and
frank discussion with Chief Howie
over the situation, and be made it
perfectly plain to Mr. Howie as a
representative of the constabulary
force in Charleston that the law
must be enforced there as well as in
other parts of the State.
Of course it is needless to say that
the emphatic instructions that have
been given to Chief Howie are not
in the spirit of hostility. Gov. Hey
ward is the friend of Charleston, and
he has no purpose in antagonizing
that community or any other in the
State, but he regards it as his solemn
duty to see that the laws of the State
are enforced and wishes to make a
sincere and legitimate effort in the
better enforcement of the dispensary
law in Charleston. There have been
serious cotplaints made as to the
enforcemett of the law in Charles
ton, and Gov. Hey ward is assured
that the best sentiment of that coin
munity does not uphold the violation
of this or any other law.
He realizes that there are peculiar
conditions in that city, and will take
due cognizance of these conditions.
He has advised Chief Constable
Howie to be firm, but to avoid any
unnecessary friction. If this policy
does not succeed, and Chief Hoewie
is not successful in the enforcement
of the law in Charleston, he will then
make it his ::uty' to inquire into what
is the real cause of the failure and
until that time arrives he wishes to
give the fullest opportunity of a
change by those now in charge of
the present machinery of thle diapen.
sary law.
Gov. Hey ward, of course feels that
lie has the sympathy of the best. peeo
ple aund the municipal authorities of
(Cr.arleston, and lhe has absolutely no0
reason to believe that there will be
any disposition 01n the part of the po
l ice and muniicip)al authorities ini any
way to ret ard thle better enforceiment
of the law; he hopes for the most ab

FRENCH CANADIANS WISH TO COLONIZE.

(The State.)
There was a conference in the
office of Governor Heyward yester
day which showed very plainly the
necessity for an industrial and immi
gration department in the State.
During the (lay the Iev. Fathers
A. J. Prevost and A Boyrube of Fall

French Canadian who is in charge of
churches having over 12,000 French
Canadians in their membership, ar

Bishop Northrop. It seems that two
years ago Bishop Northrop while on
a visit to Fall River, New Bedford
and adjacent manufacturing towns,
seeing the deUse population, told
Fat her Provost about the great
amount of undeveloped land in
South Carolina. Pather Provost be
came interested and gradually a

that his people were ready to enter
upon t he est ablishment, of a colony
and that he had come to look at. the
country, secure information as to in

get facts about the cost of such tracts
of land as would be needed. The
bishop brought the gentleman on to

that such a colony would be heartily

THE PERRY-BYNUM DUEL.
Famous in the Days of Nullification Pecu
liar Circumstances Surrounding
the Burial of Bynum.
[Greenville News.]
About two miles northwest of Pen
dleton, S. C., stands old Stone church,
built in 17U7. Nearby is a grave
yard in whose soil lie the remains of
many prominent men in the politicrl
history of the State.
Every one familiar with history
kno s that the home of John C. Oal
honn was at Fort Mill, near Pendle.
ton, S. C. According to tradition it
was his wont during the days of nul
lification, to meet his admirers at the
latter place and there discuss the
issues of the day. In Greenville,
S. C., had been established a paper
called the "Nullifier," and edited by
a man by the name of Turner B) mnm.
lie was a North Carolinian handdone,
and possessed of great ability as a
writer. In the same town of Green
ville, there was established another
paper under the editorship of W. Hi.
Perry, who attacked the cause of
nullification, not sparing, it is said,
its chief exponent-Calhoun.
These two editors in consequence
of their opposing views on the ques
tion of nullification, soon became in
volved in a newspaper controversy.
The result was a challenge. The
place selected was Island Ford, Pu
galoo river, about twenty miles south
west of Pendleton. The participants
passed through that place-Bynum
taking with him ,as his second, Jacob
Warley, who lived near Pendleton,
and with whom Bynum is said to
have stayed the night before.
Among the old residents of that
section of the country, there seems
to be quite a difference of opinion as
to the real motive that prompted the
duel, and just as to what happened
that day on the tield. Be the differ
ence of opinion on those points how
ever great., it is nevertheless a fact
that Perry shot Bynum. He lin
gered for several hours and then
died. The question at once arose as
to what uisposition should be made
of the body. After consultation it
was decided that the remains he
taken to Old Stone church, and there
ent.erred.
The news of the duel and its re
sult, soon spread and quite a num.
ber went to the church that night to
see the burial, but a heavy rain storm
having come up, the cortege was so
delayed as not to reach Stone church
until after midnight. Then in the
intense darkness, with only a flick
ering torch to aid them, the remains
of Turner Bynum were laid at rest.
At its conclusion, it was suggested
that t he grave in somec way be marked.
So intense was the darkness it was
useless to look for rocks, and so
threatening was the weather, that all
seemed( anxious to leave, and thle onily
things handy were two pine poles
wvhich had been ulsed1 to carry the
body from the wagon to the grave.
One was placed at the head, the oth
at the foot. of th1e grave.
Timio passod(, and no attent ion wvas
paid to the g.-ave. The people1 were

which woere then taking place. And
stran)ge to say, t hese t wo pl)Uls, the
only miarking of a lonely grave, took
root! They grew, anid continued to

HANNA'S BUBBLE PUNCTURED.
Scheme of the Ohio Statesman to Pension
Bx-Slaves Warmly Condemned
in the House.
In a general debate on a Bill in
the National House of Representa
Lives on Tuesday, the Hanna Bill to
pension ox-slaves was brought into
discussion. Mr. Do Armond, of M,s.
souri, spoke in a sarcastic vein, but
the subject assumed a serious phase
when Mr. Richardson, of Tennessee,
s'ated that adventurers in the South
were using the bill to impose on
ignorant credulous negroes, and call
ed upon Mr. Cannon to give assur
ance that the passage of such a
measure would not be contemplated.
This assurance Mr. Cannon gave.
Mr. DeArmond, of Missouri, de.
nominted the Bill recently introduc
ed by Senator -anna to pension the
ex slaves a "curious evidence of the
prevailing trend of politics," which
was "more valuable as a piece of
p>liiical nanoeuvering than as a
piece of prospective legislation."
The introducer of the Bill, he said,
announced that 1e was not a candi
date for the Presidency, but from
the same authority came the an
nounceient, that. there were no
trusts. The exact facts could, he
said, be balanced in the public mind
after a study of both staternente.
'l'he negro delegate, he said, was an
important, factor in Republican
national Conventions, and there was
nothing like making preparations in
good tito. It. was an interesting
game and those not, concerned could
watch it with ?quanimity. It was a
farco, he said, but still farces had
their solemn aspects. And it was so
sad to think of the old negroes in
their cabins in the South giving up
their small earnings until the time
mle when they would turn for relief
the to ntatural protectors-the white
people of the South (Deworcratic
applause.)
Mr. Caution, in reply, treated Mr.
DeArmnond's remarks lightly, calling
attention to the fact that Sr,nator
Hanna's Bill had been int:.oduncd
"by request."
flu t. Mr. Richardson, of Tonnessee,
put a different view on the matter.
He stated seriously tilat companies
were already being formed and cir
culars being sRot out. to ignorant col
ored peoplh by unscrupulous adven
turerft, and he thought both sides
should join in e.n assurance to them
not to in vest their quarters and dimois
in thIiis chimerical scheme.
Mr. Cannion responded that all
should sunderstand, rich arnd poor,
white~ arnd black, cultured and ignor
ant, that the Government promised
to all a like (equality before the law
anid equality of opp[ortunity, and un
der~ it each musat work out his own
salvation.
Mr. D)eArmond was not satisfied
with this statnemnt, but asked for a
more specific assurance, and in reply
Mr. (Jannoni stated with emphasis
that thle ignorant were being impos
edl upjon, they should be undIeceived1
~--thIiat, ini his j udgemteut, nto such
Bill conl or would passa.
