were established. The ordinance
passed its first and second reading
by the following vote, as given in
the minutes: "T. M. Voss, L. M.
Matthews, D. Lazarus, A. T. Sellers
and W. E. Brazier voted 'aye.' J.
T. Williamson and E. D. Wilson
voted 'no,' and St. Ledger White
asked to be excused from voting."
By this it could be plainly seen
that at least two of the candidates
on the "People's Ticket" D.
Lazarus and St. Ledger White
were enemies to the Public School.
Their record showed it, and it could
not be denied. He appealed to the
poor man, whose children, without
a public school, could not receive
an education and fit themselves for
the battles of life. Would they vote
for an enemy to their best interests,
or would they cast their ballots for a
ticket which they knew would be
friend and aid their children in
gaining an education?
E. H. Hatcher, Esq., was next
called for and came forward. He
said he was not on "the bill of fare"
for that night, but would make a
few remarks. "The campaign lie,"
be said, "is abroad in the land.
Figuers has been accused of passing
the Dortch law, and Yoest and
Lazarus have been credited with
passing the fourteenth amendment
to the Constitution of the United
States and there's about as much
truth in one as the other." He
made some good points in his
speech and was loudly cheered.
Calls were then made for Mr. W.
S. Fleming, and he answered by
making a stirring address. He said
that as President of the Board of
Education he had come before the
Board of Mayor and Aldermen in
1894, and at repeated meetings plead
with them in the interest of the
public school. He told them that
$3,000 was absolutely, necessary to
run the school on a fairly good basis,
but Mr. Lazarus wanted the amount
cut down to $2,000. Finally, after
much begging, they appropriated
$2,400, and, because of the cut in the
school budget the school that year
ran only nine months. Under the
present Board, however, the Board
of Education had been given all the
money they asKed for and would
have been given more had they
needed it. As a consequence, the
school had been raised to a higher
plane; a high school department
had been added, giving the poor
man's children a chance to secure a
better education, and the entire
school system was in a better con
dition now than it had been in sev
eral years. The Board of Education
had had continual trouble with the
Board of which Messrs. Lazarus and
White were members, but the pres
ent Board had done all that had
been asked of them.
Bam Holding, Esq., was then
called for and responded in a short
speech. He said he was heartily in
favor of the reform movement and
would work for it until the end. The
anti-reformers were trying to shift
the issue to finance, schools, etc.,
but they should not be allowed to
escape the main issue, which was
AT THK COURT HOUSE.
Lazarus and the School Law Cause More
The circuit uourt room was
crowded last. Wednesday night to
hear Hon. E.H. Hatcher speak in
behalf of the reform movement. He
made a magnificent address, only
an imperfect synopsis or which can
be given here.
He said that in all municipalities
there is always one element that op
poses the progress of good govern
ment, and Columbia was having
trouble with that element at present.
The lines were strongly drawn, and
it was not an issue of finance, but
one of morals.
He brought up the question of
Lazarus and the public schools,
which had been referred to bv
speakers at the City Hall Monday
night, tie said that his old friend
Lazarus had boasted of saving the
tax-payers of Columbia $1,000 a year
by reducing the public school ex
pense, "xes, he said "and lie
might have saved f.i.UOO a year by
abolishing the schools entirely, but
it would have baen at the expense
of our boys and girls." He read the
ordinance which the board of 1894
had attempted to pass. This ordi
nance sought to repeal the entire
ordinance passed in 1883, pertaining
to public schools and defining the
duties of the Board of Education.
This ordinance passed iu 1883 was
the only ordinance ever enacted
that authorized the establishment
of the public school system in Co
lumbia, and had the 1894 Board suc
ceeded in passing their ordinance
and they came very near doing it
they would have entirely abolished
the public schools or Columbia. Mr.
Lazarus had voted for this ordi
nance, and St. Ledger White had
asked to be excused from voting.
Mr. Hatcher made an appeal to
the young men, and said he was
Klad to see so many of them taking
such an active part in the Interest of
reform. He was confident that the
reformers would roll up a handsome
majority on November 18.
Short and enthusiastic speeches
were also made by Dr. Hazel Pad

Salmon, J. C. Dexter, W. S. Flem
ing and Dr. J. H. Wilkes, but lack

ECHOES OF THE PAST.
Excerpts From the Diarr of Andrew
Rev. Heroin Col. Granville Moody;
l'reaclier )y Profession, liigot and
Tyrant by Nature.
Continued from last week Article 6
March 11. Federal officers around
yesterday buying money at half
price. Our prison is very muddy,
wood and provision wacrons mlrincr
up to the axle. Col. L. D. Campbell
and Granville Moody have regi
ments here guarding the prisoners,
assisted by some cavalry. Col.
Campbell, of the 69th Ohio, and Gov.
Todd are considered by the prison
ers gentlemen and humane men.
The Rev. Heroic Col. Granville
Moody is commander of the post. A
Methodist preacher by profession, a
black Republican of the darkest
hue by politics, a bigot and tyrant
by nature. VanSraderand Bullard
are his Lt.-Col. aud Major. We
elected to-day prison and street
superintendents. We are drawing
rations for 305 men, when there are
406 in the prison.
By order of Gov. Todd the prison
wall between No. 3 and a very small
pen containing some Western Va.,
prisoners was taken down. It was
the filthiest, muddiest place I ever
saw human beings in. The moon is
shining brightly to-night and the
prisoners from the lower prisons are
out promenading and singing South
ern songs. Boys are in the prison
every day with pies, apples, candy,
cigar and such like for sale. Senti
nels will not let prisoners go near
March 12. Papers state that Cur
tis has whipped Price and killed
McCullock and that Manassas is
evacuated by Confederates. Even
ing papers report that Union men
are rising in all parts of Tennesseee;
have burned Confederate supplies
at Shelbyvllle; a skirmish 15 miles
south of Nashville; Confederate
forces concentrating at Chattanooga
March 13. Prisoners coming in
from St. Louis report that Price
was victorious at Pea Ridge instead
of Curtis. Papers report Johnson at
Decatur with 25,000 demoralized
men. Memphis reported in ashes.
March 14. Heard to-day that Col.
Morgan came near capturing Buell
and staff just south of Nashville.
Met up with Dr. James Jackson,
surgeon of the 42nd Tenn., first time
I have seen him In some eighteen
years. In prison No. 2 I met my old
room-mate Lieut. G. B. Lipscomb,
of Col. Gregg's 7th Texas. We
parted ten years ago at school and
met on the battlefield of Donelson
without recognizing each other. It
is currently reported that company
officers will be sent to Johnson
Island in Sandusky Bay so soon as
the ice breaks up and that all sur
geons and ministers of the gospel
will be released.
March 15. To-day Dr. Hoyt of
Nashville, visited our prison.
Wrote letters home and to Nashville
by him. Hucksters forbidden the
prison because three prisoners made
their escape on the Uth. Cant. Reid
died last night of inflammation of
the bowels for want of medicine.
His corpse lay in an unoccupied
shanty with the door barred up.
Cincinnati papers give an account
of Col. Morgan pitching into the
Federal south of Nashville; the
defiant attitude of the ladies of
Nashville; and the appropriation of
the residence of Mrs. W., of Nash
ville, as a hospital for Federal sol
diers. March 16. Cold and snowing this
morning. Col. Moody around to
day distributing tracts. A Missis
sip'pi captain died last night on
Buckner street. Great deal of sick
ness in prison
March 17. A member of Col. Han
son's regiment came around to-day
to divide some shoes which had been
sent them from Louisville, Ky. We
have received no clothes yet from
the Federal government, although
requisition after requisition has
been made. Wm. Brooks, of Maury
Co., visited our prison to-day. He
reports Union feeling increasing
there and that Arch Hughes Is com
ing soon to see us. Sent a letter
home by Brooks. We draw rations
every other dav, bean coffee, tea,
gun-wadding bread, corn meal, beef
shoulder meat and sugar.
March 18. Twenty-two prisoners
arrived from Somerset, Ky., some of
them very badly crippled and
wounded. Their pitiable and help
less condition makes me think that
the Federal Government sticks
closer to a prisoner than to a brother,
sticking to him as long as a piece is
March 20. Elected Aiken com
missary In place of Watts and passed
resolutions not to buy anything from
the Federal sutler. Cincinnati
ern give an account of the death
Amis, j. Thomas and otners
at St. Louis. A few prisoners from
Price's army arrived to-day.
March 21. Drew a shirt arid a pair
of socks, the first clothing we have
been able to get from Old "Abe."
Mr. 8amuel Pointer visited the pris
on to-day, but was not permitted in
ours. Wrote to Thos. Amis In rela
tion to his son.
March 22. Snowed to-day. Made
out a report of the 48th Tennessee
and sent it back to Maury County.
March 23. Learned to-day that
Dr. Hooper ecaped on the 2lst.
Met an old man seventy years of age
who was arrested in Raleigh Co.,
Va.; only offence known was that a
couple oi eecesh ladies and a boy
stopped over night at bis house out
of a storm.
March 24. Snowed some. Two of
the Ohio State Legislates visited
the prison, looking after the contra
bands, the feeling of the prisoners
and things in general. .
March. 25. Col. Moody will not
permit any paper to come in the
prison that does not advocate the
mobbing of paroled prisoners, the
hanging of all Rebels and the pet
ting of the negro.
March 26. Columbus papers of to
day are very "heavy" on paroled
Confederates for wearing "Rebel
uniforms and sporting treason on

port also a victory of Jackson near
Strasburg, Va., and that a commit

emissary from Andy Johnson iu the
person of C. F. Tregg) is on the way
here to see how many will take the
oath of allegiance, aud ih&t a great
many privates at the different pris
ons have taken the oath.
March 27. Morning papers state
that no more exchanges will be
made until Col. Corcoran and other
Union prisoners are released uncon
ditionally. Received a Union letter
from Esq. M. F. Glenn, containing
five dollars and expressing a willing
ness to do anything possible to re
lieve me as much as practicable.
March 28. Learned from the
papers that Federals are occupying
Columbia, Tenn., and that W. H.
Polk and Bailie Peyton are at Nash
ville with Andy Johnson. To-night
at nine o'clock the long roll was
sounded. Companies hurried around
the walls in great confusion. Senti
nels fired their guns promiscuously
into our quarters and a prisoner
could not look out at th door with
out having a gun cocked upon him.
March 29. An artilleryman went
out in the rain this morning and
cursed a sentinel for cocking his gun
ou him last night. Wrote two let
ters to-day to Kentucky, one to Miss
Congleton and the other to Maud
Sunday, March 30. Parsons Tay
lor and Jackson preached on Dixie
street; a good attendance and strict
attention paid: the first sermon
preached to us since our capture.
March 31. Roll is called at the
door of each mess and when ab
sentees are not accounted for rations
are cut off from that mess that day.
Sergeants came around to-day ascer
taining the number of slaves and
free negroes in the prison. Con
nelly F. Tregg made a speech to
prisoners from the wall, saying that
he had the power to release them if
they .would take the bath. Some
few beard him through; others soon
got their fill and left. A majority
never came out at all. Brownlow
attempted to speak, but was groaned
Two sentinels of prison No. 1 were
poisoned by eating apples bought
from an apple boy. The Federals
aver that the boy swapped a prison
er pies for the apples. We believe
it was a trap laid for Rebels by some
cowardly Federal, and his own men
were caught in it; an instance of

blacks from the slaves, after ques

what part they might have taken in
the wicked rebellion, overcome by
his undying love for the "brack"
man, he proceeded to speak sooth
ing words to his favorite race, tell
ing them that they had been
wronged by the wicked men of the
South and that they were now free
by the laws of Ohio and that they
need not serve their masters any
longer. Dick, a boy belonging to

April 3. A case of smallpox was
taken out of our prison and put in
