~~ "ue>v ji.Jiy. GARY.
The whole State mourns the death
of a brave, true and gifted son. The
Hail intelligence comes from Edge
Held of the sudden death on Satur
day of Gen. M. W. Gary from con
gestion of the brain.
Wo first remember Gary as a gal
lant soldier. At the first souud of
the bugle of war, although as frail as
a flower from a naturally delicate
constitution, he rushed to the de
fence of his State, undertaking all
the hardships aud dangers of the
field for the love he held for what he
believed to be right; and, in all the
battles of this long and unhappy con
flict, the plume of Gary was always
found in the van. Endued by na
ture with great powers of intellect,
and blessed with the culture and ac
complishments of a high classical
training, he soon rose to the emi
nence of command; but in his eleva
tion he never esteemed himself one
tittle above hi* fellow soldiers, but
mingled with them as comrades
working together for a common
cause. Ever watchful to the wants
of his men, aud concerned for their
safety, he won the admiration of his
whole com maud. After the war, he
resumed the practice of law at Edge
flcld, taking uoJpftTtih public affairs,
until the memorable campaign of
187<5, when, in opposition to the sen
timent of the whole State, he inaugu
rated the straightout movement
which resulted in the overthrow of
Radical ism ami the placing of Wade
Hampton iu the gubernatorial chair
of South Carolina. Had it not been
for Gen. Gary, assisted by Gen. But
ler and'the Charleston Journal of
Commerce, edited by Barn well
Rhett Jr., Chamberlain would have
been acquiesced in by tlie Democrats
as the nominee for Governor, ami the
carpet-bagger would have continued
his grasp upon our government foi
an unlimited period. The memor
able day when Gens. Gary and But
ler rode up at the head of the Edge,
field red-shirts and divided tim
with Chamberlain, and converted
Judge T. J. Mackay, was the turning
point in the political current of the
State. As one of the results of this
campaign, Gen. Gary was elected to
the State Senate from Edgofield
Here, while there were many of his
positions that wo could not endorse,
there was much good done by him
which is little realized by the people.
He was the father of the usury laws
which are now in full and harmon
ious operation. In this, as in many
other deeds, he has received the ap
pellation of the "poor man's friend."
In 1878, Gen. Gary was brought into
collision with Gen. Hampton, his for
mer friend, for whom he had worked
so zealously und unselfishly, and
in this issue we do not think that he
received n fair and unprejudiced pnb
1k jud, m-nt. During .he campaign
of this year he was prominently
spoken of for Governor, aud in the
canvass which ensued, a terrific war
fare was waged against him, under
which he was swept from the field.
But Gen. Gary bore himself as
grandly in defeat as in victory. Sur
rounded in the State convention by a
host of opposing delegates, he calmly
anil defiantly, and in the very soul of
his classic eloquence, reiterated his
political views, refusing to bow "to
the *}>sc (licit of any party autocrat,"
or lo recede one step from w hat he
believed to be right.
Gen. Gary had his faults, but he
had also his virtues. His political
opinions in many essential features
were not ours. In many of thoho we
conscientiously opposed him. But
his manliness, his honesty and his
independence, must always be ad
mired and it is upon these traits ol
Iiis character that we love to linger.
When a mau begins to go down hill
he finds everything greased for the
occasion,* said n philosopher, who
might have added that when he tries
to climb up he finds everything greas
ed for the occasion too.
WHEN WILL IT END I
The (lendlock in Congress con
tinues with little ehsuces of brenk
ing, except from absenteeism which
seems nt present to be the only
chance for the end. The latest dis
patches show that so great has been '
the falling off in the attendance that |
a quorum is scarcely secured. Both
parties seem to be determined to
stand firm. Senator Vest on the
Democratic side said to the Republi
cans in his speech on .Saturday that
the Democrats rather than submit
would stay "until the snows of De
cember covered the hills in their
winding sheets." The Republicans
also say the same. In the mean time
we would ask how the people like
this interference with the business
interests of the country, and this
reckless expenditure ot their money?
Does it pay to be spending so much
for a mere sentiment?for the empty
luxry of a party victory? We would
also ask, which party is responsible
for all this? These are questions
which the people are considering,
and there is no escaping the verdict
when it comes.
In obedience to a call, numerously
signed by the most influential citi
zens of Charleston, a large concourse
of people assembled at Ilibcrinan
Hall on Monday night for the. pnr
pose of obtaining an expression of
public opinion on the subject of |
temperance, and oifenforcing the laws
on the statute books of the city for
t he prohibition of Sunday cocktails.
The practice of selling drinks on
Sunday had been going on for a long
time and to a fearful extent in the
city. The JSeirs ami Courier under
took the unmasking of these viola
tors of law and order and a list of the
Sabbath-breakers was regularly pub
lished in that paper. Even one of
the Aldermen of the city whose duty
it is to eiiforce the laws was found by
the reporters in the list of the viola
tors. The Ncic? and (Courier pressed
the subject with great vigor, and the 1
result was the public meeting on
Monday night. The meeting was
largely attended and enthusiastic.
Speeches were made by lion. A. G.
Magrath, Maj. Edward McCrady,
Dr. Junkin, und Mr. L. H. Hayner*,
and resolutions were adopted calling
upbi the city and Stale authorities
to enforce the laws on the statute
