A very sadden death occurred to a negro
woman, Frances Wright, on Mr. Aycock's
Tiverton plantation yesterday morning. The
facts in the ease as obtained from Mr. W. W.

about as follows-Trial Justice Moseley act?

her husband heard ber breathing very heavily,

fifteen min?tes from the time he first awoke
she was dead. The woman had been perfect?

called to ber busbaud, fifteen minutes* before
she died, seemed perfectly well.

No rain yet, corn suffering very much. If

MASVILLB, S. C , June 26, '94.
Good rains and a consequent improvement
in the crop prospect bas brought smiles to the
countenances of our farmers, for if we con?
tinue to have seasons there will be excellent
crops made here this year. We hear of some
brag cotton in various sections, but if we
bad the chance to show np as an entire com?
munity, io both cotton and cona, I think we
would compare favorably with, any other
section. A man who can't say tbat bis corn
is as tall as bis shoulders, goes moping
around and insists that he will not make any
corn at all this year.
Although Butler and Til.man and the
small fry have bad their say both at Cam?
den and Sumter, and both meetings were
fairly atteded from this section, we do not
hear much about politics. Everybody seems
to think that it is an individual tussle be?
tween Butler and Tillman to see which one j
can villify the other the mos t. And John j
Gary Evans seems to think it his duty to j
help Uncle Ben whenever occasion presents, j
John Gary is not very poptslar around here, I
since some of oar liberty-loving citizens do j
not think that he, or any other man or set of
mea shall say bow or when they shall spend
their hard-earned cash and at what kind of j
"spencery" they shall imbibe. This matter
seems to be the sticking point that pinches
not a few.

Rains have been very partial in this section.
Some have had too much, others not quite
enough, and a great many none at all.
Where rain bas Wien the crops look well,
and poorly where they have bad none. At
this writing the indications ?re that we will
hare a generous downpour this afternoon,
and we hope it will come to relieve the anxie?
ty of & great many and help the crops which
are parching up for the want of it.
The young people are looking forward to
the dane? which will be given to-morrow
night is honor of several yoong ladies who
are visiting in the neighborhood. West bu ry's
band will furnish the mu?ic, and every one is
anticipating a delightful evening.
We are very glad that the meeting at
Sumter on Saturday last passed off so quiet?
ly. It shows that the minds of the people
are not so inflamed, politically speaking, as
they were a few years ago. Gov. Tillman is
the same "Old Ben Tillman" that be was
several years ago, and has not forgotten how
to reach and tickle the boys to keep them in
line. From his stand-point the refawm
movement has been a great blessing to the
down-trodden people of South Carolina ; but
we do not fee! it io our pockets or see it on
our tax receipts. We were particularly
pleased with the distinguished and able
speech of the Hon. Jas. E. Tindal, but in this
day of Ref atc m we are afraid that be is too
conservative and too much of a gentleman to
be elected to the high office to which he
aspires. We have no confidence in John
Gary Evans, who is nothing more than a
scheming politician. He is not a true blue
refatcmer, for be has but recently been con?
verted to the faith. He voted against the
establishment of Clemson College while a
membe: of the House in 1888-89, also against
the salary reduction bill, and against Gov.
Tillman himself, who was then a candidate
for the Board of Agriculture. When he saw
the chance of getting an office be changed
over, and will change again whenever it suits
his fancy or purposes.

"That School Matter."
To the Editor of the Watchman and Southron :
"Another Citizen" writing in the Freeman
of the 22nd inst., instances the State aid ex?
tended to Claflin University, as a sufficient
vindication of our City Council's action in
voting aid to the proposed Northern Presby?
terian Mission School House to be erected
here. He also states that Claflin is "managed
by the Northern M. E. Church."
Perhaps the best answers that can be given
to "Another Citizen" is to quote from the
General Statutes of the State, which I now
Section 1027. The University of South
Carolina shnll oe, and it is hereby, divided
into branches-the one located in the City of
Colombia, and styled the South Carolina
College; another in or near the town of
Orangeburg, to be styled the Claflin Col?
lege ; another the South Carolina Military
Academy. The said University,-and the said
branches thereof, in Columbia and Orange
burg, shall be and are hereby, placed under
the control and management of the Board of
Trustees of the University of South Carolina,
now in office, and their successors elected
according to law.
This speaks to the point, and absolutely
avoids "Another Citizen's" contention, be?
cause it shows that the aid given to Claflin is
State aid to a State institution, which is a
very different thing from City aid to a sec?
"Another Citizen" misses the point alto?
gether. He does not even get his facts cor?
rect. One cannot argue with a manufacturer
of facts. His special pleading "contains
nothing worthy of a reply. The principle
involved is that of mixing or keeping separate
Church and State. Oo that issue I stand for
separation complete sod final. CITIZEN.

TO THE PUBLIC
And Particularly to the Residents of
I Stateburg School District, No. 6.
It having been rumored that there
were irregularities in the manage?
ment of School District Xo. 6, and
such rumors having reached us we
immediately visited the office of the
School Commissioner at Sumter and
conferred with him concerning the
same. Upon being shown the dupli?
cate school checks we found that a
large number of checks had been
issued which bore the name of J. S.
Pinckney, but were not signed by him,
and that one check bore the name of
Wm. Sanders, but was not signed by
him, (William M. Sanders.) The lirst
named checks purport to be signed by
Mr. R. D. Moore, as well as by J. S.
Pinckney, and the name of Wm. M.
Sanders does not appear on any of
said first named forged checks. And
the check having the name Wm. San?
ders on it, also has upon it the name
of Hr. R. D. Moore, but not the name
of J. S. Pinckney. Finding this con?
dition of affairs, we deemed it unfair
to Mr. B. D. Moore who is the Chair?
man and Clerk of the Board of trus?
tees of said District to make the mat?
ter public without giving notice to Mr.
Moore, and thereupon we invited him
by letter to meet us at the School
Commissioner's office at 12 o'clock to?
day, calling his attention specifically
to a number of irregularities and
notifying him that we particularly
desired his presence to-day as we in?
tended to publish a statement of the
facts af tar such meeting. Mr. Moore
replied to our letter in person to Mr.
Pinckney, but it is deemed unneces?
sary to state here what then occurred
except that Mr. Moore said he would
be present. But last night Mr. San?
ders received a letter from Mr. Moore
in which he stated that a member of
his family was quite ill, and that he
feared that it would be impossible for
him to meet us in Sumter to-day. We
met at the office of the School Commis?
sioner at the hour appointed, and in
the presence of a number of our
friends called for all the duplicate
school checks on vile and checked off
all that were spurious. Mr. Moore
was not present. These papers are on
file in the office of the School Com?
missioner and can be seen by any one
interested, and au investigation is
earnestly invited by us. No one
regrets more than we do that any
irregularities should have occurred,
but we were in no way responsible for
them, and an investigation will show
that we were powerless to prevent
such irregularities. We had never
seen any of such forged papers until
we saw them in the School Commis?

WASHINGTON, Jane 25, 1894.
Senator Hill's fight against the income tax
was a futile one, and bs did not get eren the
support of all those he bad counted apon.
Whether it was that fret or something else he
conducted the fight with such bitterness that
he has made enemies among the democratic
Senators who will never forgive him for the
language he used and the manner in which he
used it. Senator Hill could have made a
fight against the income tax without offend?
ing a single detuo^at who favors it, but he
chose to do otherwise, and even those who
agree with bim in opposing the tax are now
! unanimous in saying tbat he has made a
j mistake that he will never be allowed to for

Theeod of the fight agaiast the income tax
is the end of the 'legitimate fight against the
tariff bill, and unless there is some republi?
can trickery the bill will pass the Senate and
be in the hands of the conference committee
before the close of this week. Such republi?
can Senators as Aldrich, Sherman aud Teller,
w\! do nothing to prevent a vote being
reached, the legitimate debate being over, bot
there is a gang of guerillas on the republican
side of the Senate (mea like "little Billy"
Chandler, of N. H.) which may attempt to
filibuster against a vote, not with any ex?
pectation of defeating the bill, but just because
of their "pure cussedness " Public interest,
recognizing the early passage of the bill, is
now centered upon the changes that will be
made in it by the conference committee.
Tbat there will be a number of changes is
regarded as eertaiu, and it is fair to presume
that they will all lean towards the original
Wilson bill as it was passed by the House,
although probably in few, if any, instances
going all the way. The sugar schedule is
regarded as one of the certain changes to be
made, but it will hardly go as far as free
sugar, because of the opinion that some
revenue must be raised from sugar.
Senator Brice, who is chairman of the
Senate committee on Pacific Railroads, has a

The Hatch anti-option bill, which passed
the House by a vote of 150 to 87, bas been
before Congress in one or another shape for

manner in which party lines were disregarded
when the vote was taken-for the bill, demo?
crats 93, republicans 47, and populists 10;
against, democrats 61, republicans 26-that
politics did not influence the members to any
marked extent. The anti-option bill was
originally introduced in the Fifty-first Con?
gress by Representative Funston, of Kans.,

to compel Havemeyer and Searle to tell how
S much money they had contributed to state
organizations, they having stated tbat they
had made no contributions to tbe National
organizations. It was merely to gain a little
partisan capital that the two republican mem?

As to Prohibition.
ST. CHARLES, S. C., June 14, 1894.
Tbe most momeoteus question agitating tbe
public mind is the use or abuse of intoxica?
ting drinks. Different systems are being dis?
cussed to lessen or prevent its baneful effects
of tbe human family. After several years of
deep reflection I confess I hare become a be?
liever in prohibition Every christian and
moralist must examine and determine for
himself. Reform is a word of powerful signifi?
cance, when not misapplied or perverted from
its natural channel. If the fountain bead be
pure its stream will partake of its purity.
"Doth a fountain send forth at the same
place sweet water aiad bitter? If a man be a
true christian, he must submit to the deliver?
ance of bis Church courts. All Christian
Churches have pronounced the whiskey traffic
to be immoral. Where stands tbe officers and
members of these organizations ? A serious
question requiring a prayerful answer.
Many object to prohibition on the ground that
legislation fails to prohibit. The moral power
of our people forced the U. S. Congress to
pass a law prohibiting polygamy in Utah.
If we can exterminate this vice, why can we
not destiain or abolish tbe rum evil? Now,
as moral reformers, are we not compelled to
eradicate tbis curse from the body politic, or
ameliorate as much as we ran the miseries
which flow from tbe use of alcoholic drinks ?
Are we bound in anyway to advocate or per?
petuate an evil? John Calvin, amoral re*
former, made futile efforts to iotroduce tbe
sacred Scripta res into France. The Deist bad
decreed tbat the god of reason was the god of
the French people. Time io its ceaseless
flight bas brought about a wopderful change.
These same Scriptures are now being exten?
sively sold in this infidel nation.
Postmaster-General Bissel 1 is an able advo?
cate of moral reform, having determined not
to appoiut to office any one whose business it
is to sell intoxicating beverages. Some object
to temperance societies, they s*y they accom?
plish so little. I admit their growth is slow ;
the growth of truth is slow, but remember,
"Tall oaks from little acorns grow, Large
streams from little fountains flow." Seek
good and not evil, that ye may live. Hate
the evi! and love the good.
Martin Luther was the grandest reformer
that ever moved upon the earth, (except the
i Son of God) yet we have been unable to find
j that be used any lager beer to bring his
reformation to a grand and lasting success.

must we vote for the continuance of an evil

destructive to both the mental, mor?! and
bodily faculties? As a juror, I have often
been impressed with this query : What is the
j character of the plantiff or defendant, good
I or bad ? What do his neighbors think of him ?
Some say reform must begin KI the parent's
