The Veto Power.
Every administration from the or
ganization of our Government down
to the present time is known by the
leading events of the period, iro the
.term of Mr. Hayes, besides the great
fiatid of which himself is the cmbody
nicnt, will be recognized as the admin
islialion of vetoes, or a reckless use
.of Ibis the most conservative power
known to our conslitnlion. Mr.
Hayes, in every veto message, brings
prominently before the public his
views of policy, his opinions of pub
lic necessity, his ideas of constitu
tional requirements and his notions
of political precedents.
In reading the life of Gen. Taylor,
wc find tl cse remarkable words, utter
ed during his candidacy for the Presi
dency upon the veto power. At that
time the entire country was exceed
ingly jealous and therefore watchful
of any encroachment upon their liber
tics, and especially so of the free in
stitution of the Kopublic. Elections
then were constitutional and their re
sults determined by .constitutional
p:iticiples, therefore, the policies an
nounced and the doctrines defended
were of a constitutional character.
' Whatever side gained the victor}', it
is reasonable lo conclude that the po
litical principles advocated by Hie
successful candidate was ihc will of
tho majority of the citizens, and
therefore, a true index of what was
held to be constitutional. General
Taylor says, "The power given by
the' constitution to the Executive lo
iutcrposc his veto, is a high conserva
tive power; but in my opinion it
should never be exercised except in
cases of clear violation of the consti
tution or manifest haste and want of
due consideration by Congress."
If President Hayes could forget
himself and cease to parade his indi
vidual opinions, and would address
himself more to the constitution and
jts clear violations?if be would
adopt these views of an olficcr, hon
estly elected by tlie honest vole of a
large majority of his fellow-citizens,
o?r country could soon be restored
in its ancient mooring and our peo
ple, already loo much excited and
burdened by unwarranted discussions
that gender strife between sections
pud bitterness between citizens, might
llddrcsa themselves to building their
waste places and restoring, in a meas
ure, their broken fortunes.
If our members of Congress could
liavo been brought to believe that
ciery day, spent in paltry squabbles,
ftud every night, in disgraceful lili
bualering over differences that could
not be adjusted because of the Presi
dent's individual opinions, serve only
Jo sink their proceeding to the level
<jf a nuisance in the estimation of the
people, ap adjournment might have
been readied long before the first of
July and thousands of dollars saved
in tho nation's treasury*
. Great questions involving the va
jidity of the constitution have been
before Congress from the first day of
the extra session until its close, and
the discussions upon the Democratic
aide were conducted in all the fairness
of an honest logical debate, but was
met by the Radicals with taunts, epi
thets and billingsgate. When these
questions or matters were proven to
be unconstitutional, passed by a ma
jority of both branches of Congress
and scut to the President for his ap
proval, that oilicial saw fit to inter
pose his private views and hia party's
dictations between a clearly demon
strated duty, the country's welfare
and his own conscience. Questions
relating lo the administration of jus
tice and concerning constitutional
I iw and civil liberty were bandied
about ant! finally disposed of by an
puv\ui runted use of the veto power.
This company has made extensive
preparation for their celebration to
day. We have noticed the command
drilling on several occasions and
from the promptness with which they
obeyed every order and the facility
and accuracy with which they were
?xecutcd, we predict for them a most
creditable exhibition of military skill
to day on tboir parade. Gen. Izlar,
its war captain, will deliver an ad
dress on the occasion and will give a
complete history of the com maud
from its dale of organization to the
present time. No one is better able
to perform this duty, or can give
general satisfaction to the old vete
ran members than the captain who
exposed himself with them upon
many a hard contested battlefields
and who endured the heat and bur
den, the wear and tear, and tho toil
atul hardships of camp life.
Our citizens may prepare them
selves for a treat, such only as Gen.
Izhir can give on a subject in which
both his head and heart are deeply
interested. Other amusements and
the usual refreshments will be pro
vided, so that ihcio will be no lack
of food for either mind or body, and
that every one may be in the right
mood to honor the men whose noble
deeds of daring havo given character
to the history of our town. For what
the Washington Light Infantry is to
Charleston, or the Governor's Guard
is to Columbia, the Edisto Hilles is
Redmond, the Out-law.
This hunted and persecuted man
by the bloody bend of the Federal
law was induced last week by a spy
to leave his mountain strong-hold and
was suddenly surrounded by Revenue
ofliccrs. Redmond, recognizing the
treachery, drew his revolver and
opened lire uftou the spy and posse
which produced a hasty and by no
means a dignified or creditable stam
pede that did not cease until fifteen
miles spanned the distance between
the affrighted fugitives and the lone
It docs seem to U3 thai this kind of
conduct on the part of a great nation
against a poor, fatherless boy ought
lo slop. The government is paying
out large suras of money for the
apprehension of Redmond to men
who arc ten limes more the rasoal than
Redmond ever was or can be. They
are loo cowardly to arrest him if
they could and are too dishonest to
slop their pay by his arrest. Human
ity, justice and every "other virtue de
mand a cessation of hostilities v.'hcn
Redmond offers to give up if the
government will guarantee a fair
trial. What more is needed.
Mr. G. W. Williams.
We regret that the cotton specula
tion of New York is about to get
Mr. Williams into perhaps inextrica
blo trouble. We were in hopes that
his icputcd ability to pay his linbifi
th6 at the rate of one hundred cents
on the dollar would be verified by a
course so desirable for a man who
was for years the leading merchant
of our State and of the South. In
stead of this wo find him ofi'ering fifty
cents on tho dollar, which his credi
tors indignantly refused and entered
sr.il against him. Mr. Rirnie also
has commenced suit against Mr. Wil
liams for damages to a largo amount,
and upon I he heals of these facts cir
culars have been issued notifying the
public of the dissolution of the firm
of G. W. "Williams & Co., of Charles
ton. Surely the meshes of misfor
tune arc drawing cioscly about him.
We cannot, however, believe without
further proof that crookedness char
acterized the conduct of Mr. Wil
The Quinine Monopoly.
Some weeks ago we noticed editor
ially the unjustifiable tax by which
our people were forced to pay 8720,
000 for the support of two Northern
(inns. This burden rented on us so
long that the money was paid with
out even a complaint, and, in the ma
jority of instances, without a knowl
edge of its injustice. The News and
Courier, however, brought tho mat
ter to light, and since then by Ihc in
lluencc of the press throughout the
country, Democratic Congressmen
look the matter in hand and used
such efforts as resulted at last in re
moving tho tax. The manufacture
of quinine is now open to the world
and will command at the druggist
only its market price, which ought
not to exceed one-half its present

Editor Orangeburg Democrat:
In my last letter, I promised to
write on the cultivation of corn, which
I will postpone in order to answer
"Nemo" and "J. W. S." fully, on tho
subject of "Pea-vine Hay." In his
reply to mine, on "Pea as a Fertili
zer," ho merely mentioned un inaccu
racy in the analysis I gave, which I
willingly acknowledge. I referred
to the chemist, and the first that met
my eye was the Pea, by a German
chemist, not thinking there was any
difference between the German pea
and our common corn field pen. 1
wish "J. W. S." had given the analy
sis of our pea in his letter. If there
is any difference, the advantage is in
favor of oqr pea?ours containing
ing some less nitrogen and limo but
much more potash and phosphoric
acid?at all events it suits my theory.
We might find a difference in many va
rieties of our pea and even in the poa
of the same kind. The analysis will
depend much on the amount of plant
food contained in the soil. I would
state here a fact of practical impor
tance : That the pea to be selected
for a fertilizer, is the large tap root
ed pea resembling a bean. That the
pea receives its nitrogen through its
leaves, which is incorrect, is the gen
eral opinion as well as that of "J. W.
S." Recent experiments have proven
that it cannot; but that it receives it
by its roots. We know the pei
thrives well in porous soil.
Wo seated ourself to write about
Peavine Hay?the propriety of mak
ing it. Our friend Nemo advised us
to try it. We have, and we endorse
all you and "J. W. S," say about it
as a food for cattle and mules. Rut,
when we reflect upon the value of tho
plant food abstracted from our im
poverished soil, we most positively
refuse to take the advice. Friend Ne
mo, if you have ever had the trouble
and expense, as wo have had, of re
suscitating dead land you would not
give suck advice.
According to our theory, we con
sider that you and "J. W. S." fertil
ize your old cows hugely* Let me
advise you and my brother farmers
n better plan, which I have tested for
the last two years. Make a bounti
ful crop of pea vines aud just let
them remain where they grow. My
cattle cat them readily from the fields
as when cured and housed. The but
ter I make has the goshen flavor and
when turned from the fields, thoy are
sleek too like "J. W. S.V
Not for argument nor consistency's
sake do we advise our farmers to
cease from pulling up pea vines, eith
er to gather or to euro for food, but
for the sake of the future crop to ho
Dr. Ravenel told us, in our Agri
cultural Society, that by using $9
worth of the famous ash clement, we
might make four tons of peavine hay
per aero, two years in succession,
wont $80 per ton net to attempt the
third year, for wc would fail. Friends
?'Nemo" and "J. W. S.," meot this
question squarely. Pecs it pay to
make pea vine hay? Estimato tho
market valuo of ammonia, phosphoric
acid, potash, magnesia, lime, and sul
phur, contained in the pea vine, and
the labor of cutting, carrying, hous
ing and feeding, and you will find
it to turn out like the Indian's gun,
cost more than it aomcs to.
To "Nemo" I would say, I am not
eool for I have been fighting General
Green, still pugnaciously. You are
living between the rivers, water
abundant, please add ice and pour
on me. J. C. IL

Editor Orangeburg Democrat:
Your correspondent had tho pleas
ure of attending, by special invita
tion, the exhibition given at the close
of the session of Fairlaun Academy,
on tho evening of the 27th instant.
This academy was established about
two years ago, and sinco that time
tins heen in successful operation un
dor tho judicious management of Miss
Anna R. Zimmerman. The commu
nity is indeed _ fortunate in securing
the benefits which accrue fiom a well
regulated school of such high charac
tor, presided over by pne, whose suc
cess, qualifications and accomplish
ments as an instructress, were so
abundantly manifest on |Ans pleasant
and interesting ocpasion.
The exhibition consisted qf music,
dilogues, declamations, charades and
tableaux, and afforded an entertain
ment of real excellence and merit,
seldom witnessed at a country school.
The exercise^ began with music,
after which Master Russic Zimmer
man delivered tho Salutatory address,
and thus prepared the audience in
mood and sympathy for the rich treat
which followed. It would consume
too much space to publish the entire
programme, but the following pieces
and names deserve special promi
nence : "Hunting for Gold ;" (dia
logue), by Masters John Paulling and
R. Zimmerman. Dialogue, subject,
Composition ; by Misses Essie Whet
stone and Sue Arant. "NewsJ
(dialogue), by Misses Edna Whet
stone and Mary Arant. "Verses,"
by Miss Emma Whetstone. "Young
Men of the present day," by Miss
Edith Paulling. "Young Ladies of
the present day^" by Master R. Zim
merman ; the last was also quite suc
cessful in "Comic Charley." The
music on the pjjuno by Misses Essie
and Edna Whetstone was well ren
dered, and reflected much credit on
their accomplished instructress. Mr.
J. M. Whetstone added much to this
part of tho exefcises by Ins perform;
ance on tho violin. The exercises
closed with a "Parting Song," after
which "good-bye" was said, and
friends parted, realizing doubtless as
they rode homeward beneath the tall
pines, how pleasant it is to turn aside
from the toils and anxieties of lite,
for a season, to cultivate the social
element, and improve the better part
of our nature, i

Editor Orangeburg Denxocrat:
The closing exercises of this most
excellent school, which is always
looked forward to with so much plea
ure by the eitizens of our town, came
off last Friday night in the Court
house. This being an institution of
which Orangeburg is justly proud,
I was not surprised to see the
largest and most brilliant audience
ever assembled on a similar occasion
in our thriving town. The large and
spacious courtroom was crowded to
overflowing, and a more appreciative
audience I have never seen. That
alone will say more for the splendid
success of the exhibition than I could.
Tho vast amount of good which is
every j'ear emcnating from the noble
eflbrts of the Christian scholar who is
at the head of this school has been
felt and appreciated in our entire and
adjoining counties, judging from the
number of young men who come from
a distance to receive its advantages.
About half past eight o'clock the
speaking commenced, tho smaller
boys leading off, who, without an ex
ception, did remarkably well, ami
showed that no pains had been spar
ed iu their training. The highest ex
pectations of that select audience
wero fully met. The young gentlemen
acquitted themselves handsomely,and
would havo graced a college rostrum.
They all opoke with a grace and ease
rarely seen in young men of their
age, reflecting rouoh credit on tho
school. Discriminations are, I know,
invidious, but I think it is only just
to mention tho masterly style in
which Master Harry Dnwson han
dled his difficult piece. The query,
"Is tho mental capacity of the two
sexes equal," was discussed in a spir
ited manner by quite a number of the
young gentlemen. Mr. II. S. Wan
naranker was tho presiding officer,
and right well did he perform that
duty, Tho whole aflair was ono of
the best and most enjoyable of the
kind that I ever had the pleasure of
attending. This school is an orna
ment to tho town and I wish Mr.
Sheridan much success in his high and
holy work of training the minds of
tho young, I bespeak for him a large
patronage, and hope his school will
long bo what it is?a benefit and a
blessing to this community.
