Out and In.
The readers of the Democrat were
informell two weeks ago that it was
the purpo.se sf Ceo. Boliver lo bold
the ofllce of clerk of the court, not
withstanding the verdict of the peo
ple, as declared in the late election,
was overwhelmingly against his. In
deed he had so long been accustomed
to ride here that he began to think
the ofllce, fixtures and profits were
his by possession or some title which
even the people could not annul.
'Hence to defend that right his hist
drop of blood and cent of money
?stood pledged. From this bold posi
tion assumed by Boliver and these de
fiant threats the people expected war
to the knife, and Mr. Robinson, the
clerk elect, fortified himself behind
the liest ofsuritiesand the Governor's
?Commission before making the de
mand for the surrender of Bolivev's
stronghold. Preparations being com
pleted, the demand was made on Sat
urday last for the unconditional sur
render of ofllce and contents. This
was refused, or a compliance, evaded
by a request for time to consider as
to his best action. Nothing more
was heard of the matter until on
Monday morning, about 11 o'clock,
Mr. Robinson with his chief clerk
Mr. L. H. Wannamaker, and a few
friends, finding the door opened,
walked into the clerk's ofllce,, told
?I. G. Boliver and Dr. Malone, who
were writing at their desks,, that he
had come to enter upon the duties of
the oUicc and that he had no use for
them or nccd>of their services. This
was a bombshell in the camp, sud
denly exploded and effective, and
these gentlemen, taking in the situa
tion, at once retreated, leaving Mr.
Robinson master of the field. The
work of making nn Inventory of every
thing in the qfilce was immediately
beg'un und finally completed. During
Hie day a notice was served on Mr.
Geo. Boliver personally that Mr.
Robinson had assumed ? the-manage
ment of the otllce and was ready to
give a receipt for the property.
This was answered b}* a long, point
less aud aimless protest which served
only to excite a pleasant smile upon
Mr. Robinson's features, because
he knew Boliver was out und he was
in. Every thing necessary to conduct j
the business of the ollice successfully
was found except the soul which is j
locked up in the safe, the key of which
Boliver refuses to surrender. This,!
however, does not materially matter
as the general routine busiues can be
performed without it. Mr. Robinson
is now ready lo wait upon our citi
zens who may have business in bis
Thice young colored demons, two
hoys and a girl, aged respectively 15,
10 and 18, murdered Mrs. Ada Ken
nedy of Claiendon County on the lib
instant in a most brutal and horri
ble manner. A sboit while after Mr.
Kennedy left home to secure the pres
ence of bis mother with his wile
during a three days visit to Charles
ton, these fiends appeared, demand
ed money and, being refused, hiutally
attacked Mrs. Kennedy wit.i hoes
and finally killed her by cleaving her
skull with a hoe. One ol the boys
having been arrested, confesled the
cr me and told who engaged with him
in committing the deed. The ether
boy and girl were forthwith arrested
and by a vote of one hundred and
fifty white men and fifty colotetl men
aud women, the young murderers were
lynched and hung to a tree until they
We tue no advocates of extreme
measures und ceituiuly not of any
mode of piocedure which takes the
life of a fellow being ; but liiere nie
ei reu tu stances and occasions when
the slow pioccsscs of I he law do not
meet the emergency and, to save so
ciety from panic, it becomes proper
and necessary to deal summarily
with ollendcrs against its peace and
sully. This seems lo be a case, the
circumstances' of which evidently
justify the menus employed. The
[same course would have been follow
ed in any community of the North
against the safo'y of which the same
crime had been perpetrated. Wo de
sire to sco our society free from even
the apprehension, ol such outrages,
but'this can never tie while contem
ptible political leaders, such as we
have, are suirered to poison the very
elements of that society by exciting
hatred and enmity between tho races.

This body continues at work and
notwithstanding the purpose to ad
journ before Christmas are cutting out
new business every day according as
each member thinks best for the intcr
i est of his county and State. Among
tho matters perfected and passed is the
bill introduced by our Senator Gen.
J. F. Isslar to lix the bond of County
Commissioners at 82,000 instead of
SoOO as beretolorc. We suppose the
Commissioners lately elected will be
required to give this bond. A special
bill for certain counties, among which
i is Orangeburg, bus passed to its sec
ond reading prohibiting the buying
of seed cotton, except for manufactur
ing, in settlement between landlord
and tenant and under process of law.
It is likely now that this bill will be
come a law unless it be killed on
passing its third reading which is not
usual. A bill has been inlrodeced to
?inend an act io prohibit persons
from living together in adnllury.
i We hope its previsions are sufficient
ly defined and severe to put a stop to
the evil und that lite bill will pass.
The bill lo utilize the labor ol prison
ers in jail was rejected. Two peti
tions : one from 5000 ladies of Char
leston and one from 3000 ladies of
Audcrson, asking for a low pri hibi
ting the sale of liquor in the Slate,
were unrolled in Use House and meas
ured respectively 30 and JO yards in
lenght. These petitions were referred
to a special committee of which our
representative, Dr. Summers, is a
member. The bill prohibiting the
carrying of concealed weapons has
occasion one or two hot discussion
but has not yet assumed a form to
allow cn opinion of ils finial result.
The appropriation and supply bills
; arc being perfected rapidly and their
provision indica'e about the same
tax levy as last year.
Among the important matters in
troduced and likely to become enact
ed laws by our legislature are the
following, measure. A bill by Gen.
Isslar creating a public guardian to
iull such minors as inherit property
j not under a will and constituting the j
Master as such officer; also a bill to
make the ollice of Master genet a)
throughout the counties o!' the Slate ;
I also a bill by Dr. Summers lo limit
j the sale of intoxicating liquors inclu
ding bitters or other drinks with alco
i hoi as the base ; also a bill to provide
[public scales at all points of trade
j where heavy products are weighed.
These ate all iralters of general
;and local interest and look directly to
I the benefit of the State. Some of
them we heartily endorse and hope
! they may be pushed successfully
! through. We are glad lo sec our mem
bers moveing forward in such mat
ters making a history for our countv
? and a reputation for themselves.
