Out and In.
The fenders of the Democrat were
informed two weeks ngp tbal it was
the purpose sf Geo. Deliver lo bold
the oillce of clerk of the court, not
withstanding ibe verdict of the peo
ple, as declared in the late election,
was overwhelmingly against his. In
deed he had so long been accustomed
to rule here that he began to think
, the oillce, fixtures and profits were
his by possession or some title which
? even the people could not annul.
TIence to defend that right his last
drop of blood and cent of money
?stood pledged. From this bold posi
tion assumed by Bolivcr and these de
fiant threats the people expected war
-to the knife, and Mr. Robinson, the
?clerk elect, fortified himself behind
the best of suritics and the Governor's
-Commission before making the de
mand for the surrender of Roliver's
?stronghold. Preparations being com
pleted, the demand was made on Sat
urday last for the unconditional sur
render of office ami 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. II. Wannamnkcr, and a few
friends, finding the door opened,
walked into the clerk's office,, told
?t. G. Deliver and Dr. Malone, who
were writing at their desks, that he
had come to enter upon the duties of
the olliee and that he had no use for
them or need>of their i services. This
was a bombshell in the camp, sud
denly exploded and effective, and
these gentlemen, taking in the situa
tion, nt once retreated, leaving Mr.
llobinson master of the field. The
work of making an Inventory of every
thing in the office wps immediately
be^un and finally completed. During
the day a notice was served on Mr.
Geo. Bolivcr personally that Mr.!
Robinson had assumed the-manage-!
meet of the oillce and was ready to
give a receipt for the property.
This was answered by a long, point
Jess and aimless protest which served
only to excile a pleasant smile upon
Mr. Robinson's features, because
he knew Roliver was out und ho was
in. Every thing necessary to conduct
the business of the olliee successfully j
was found except the seal which is
locked up in the safe, I he key of which
Bolivcr refuses to surrender. This, I
however, does not materially matter
as the general routine busines can be
performed without it. Mr. Robinson
is now ready to wait upon our citi
zens who may have business in his
Thice young colored demons, two
hoys and a girl, aged respectively 15,1
10 and 18, murdered Mrs. Ada Ken-'
nedy of Clmcndon County on the lib 1
instant in a most brutal and horri- :
ble manner. A shoit whilo aller Mr. 1
Kennedy left home to secure thepres-1
ence of his mother with ids wife
during a three days visit to Charles- !
ton, these fiends appeared, demand- i
c I money and, being refused, biulally
attacked Mrs. Kennedy win hoes
and finally killed her by cleaving her
skull with a hoe. One of the bo}s
having been arrested, contested the
cr'tne and lohl who engaged with him
in committing the deed. The other I
boy and girl were forthwith arrested 1
and by u vole of one hundred and j
filly white men and fifty coloied men
and women, the young murderers were
lynched and hung to a irec until they J
We aie no advocates of extreme
measures and ceilainly not of any I
mode of pioeedure which takes the j
life of a fellow being ; but there ate
circumstances and occasions when
the slow processes of the law do not
meet the emergency and, to save so
ciety from panic, it becomes proper
and n.'ccssury to deal summarily
with ollcndcrs against its peace and
sally. This seems lo be a case, the
circumstances' ?f which evidently
justify the menus employed. The
same course would have boon follow
ed iu any community of the North
i against the safety of which the same
crime had been perpetrated. Wo de
sire to see our society free from even
the apprehension, ol such outrages,
but this can never tie while contem
pCiblc political leaders, such as we
have, are suffered to poison the very
elements of that society by exciting
hatred and enmity between the races.
Rid our country of these political vi
j pors and we will hear of no more
such crimes as the Clarendon and
-?1>- ? m-?? -?
This body continues at work and
notwithstanding the purpose lo ad
journ before Christmas are cutting out
new business every day according as
each member thinks best for the inter
est of his county and State. Among
the mailers perfected and passed is the
bill introduced by our Senator Gen.
J. F. Izlar to fix the bond of County
Commissioners at $2,000 instead of
S?O? as heretofore. We suppose the
Commissioners lately elected will be
required to give this bond. A special
bill for certain counties, among which
is Orangcburg, has 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 bo killed on
: passing its third rending which is not
! usual. A bill has been Inlrodeecd to
Iumend an act io prohibit persons
from living together iu adullury.
We hope ils previsions are sufficient
ly defined and severe to put a slop lo
j the evil and that the bill will pass.
The bill lo utilize the labor ol prison
ers in jail was injected. Two peti
tions : one from 5000 ladies of Char
leston and one from 3000 ladies of
j Anderson, asking fur a low pn Iiibi
ting the sale of liquor in the Stale,
were unrolled in the House and meas
ured respectively 30 and JO yards in
leilght. These petitions were referred
to a special committee of which our
representative, Dr. Summers, is a
member. The bill prohibiting the
carndng of concealed weapons has
occasion one or two hot discussion
but has not yet assumed a form to
allow r.n opinion of ils ftnial result.
The appropriation and supply bills
: arc being perfected rapidly and their
j provision indicae about the same
I lax 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.
Izlar creating a publitt guardian to
ull such minors as inherit property
not under a will and constituting the
Master as such officer; also a bill to
make the olliee of Master geneiaj
throughout the counties of the State ;
also a bill by Dr. Summers lo limit
the sale of intoxicating liquors inclu
ding bitters or other drinks with alco
hol as tilt base ; also a bill to provide
public scales at all points of trade
where heavy products are weighed.
These arc all trailers of general
and local interest and look directly to
the bcneOt of the Stale. Some of
them we heartily endorse and hope
they may be pushed successfully
through. We are glad to sec our mem
bers movcing forward in such mat
ters making a history for our county
land a reputation for themselves.
