VIOLATION OF TUS LAW
Simon Cooper was a low, wicked,
depraved, horrible brute. It is hard
to conceive how any man could have
been more utterly devoid of character,
ilixed in blood, he had inherited the
worse of the superior and inferior race
alike. lie had a bold, reckless and
da:lug courage. Ke had sunken so
low in crime that he had learned to
undervalue human life even to the extent
of caring nothing for his own.
Cooper's wholesale murder is unprecented
in the history or the State
as far as we know. Not contented
with having taken life, he committed
a worse crim?. He did enough to
ro'ise tha indignation of any community.
We can ea?;ly conceive bow
the citizens of Salter and the surrounding
counties felt when the news
reached them of the horrors perpetrated
by this brute in human flesh.
The impnUc of any man of ordinary
human feelings would prompt him to
swina: Cooper to the first iirnb in reach.
2so punishment known to man could
be too severe. His crimes deserve a
punishment thai ms.u can not inflict.
Xow while our sentiments and impulses
would have lead us to a desire
to do oracily it hat these citizens did,
a calm :ud dispassionate deliberation
ler.ds us to the conclusion that they
did won? in taking the life of Cooper,
after t?-ey had him uuder arrest.
They had sufficient force to hold him.
His escape was impossible, and murderingh^m
c>nuot be justified upou
any ground whatsoever. They found
Ccoper in the house, and they had a
pe. tect right to arrest him even if it
V7<xs necessary to take his life. They
made a pledge to him that if he would
crrae ou'- with his clothes off, his
kaad- over his head, they would spare
h'siife. He insulted them, but did
c. ine out with his coat, off and his
ggg- i ands over his head. He started to
t' op his hands, and upon being or?
ered by one of the party to keep
taem. over his head, he eursed and ins.tited
the man. He was then shot.
1 is said that it was thought at this
, t me that Cooper was about to snoot.
I " his shot may have been justifiable
a,-id we have no censure to make for
L the wounding of Cooper. The party
t >k charge of Cooper, tbinkiDg that
h was mortally wounded. Upon being
^ a vised by a physician that he' might
r cover, they became infuriated, and
their passions got the better of them,
a.d they themselves committed a most
L horrible deed. They took their prisH
oner, wounded as he was, and bang
??,, him and riddled him with bullets.
||| They found weapons on his person
He had ac!ed in bed faith, and so had
g his slayers. They had violated a
Hi most solemn pledge.
Ill The law has been violated in the
|||-. death of Simon Cooper, and nothing
||li else can be made out of it. We are
dlsr free to admit that if lynching can be
Illl justified in any circumstances, it can
I?? be in Coopers case. Had lie been
tried, he would Lave suffered the
penalty of death as sure as night follows
day, and th; party who killed
him must have known this. We believe
that a legal execution would
have been a greater punishment to
him. Anticipated death is a greater
torture, thin unexpected death. lie
had suilered no mental' anguish, because
he had not been given time.
||||||| But above all, a legal execution would
1|||||| have illustrated the wisdom of our
institutions. Why should society be
organized with a machinery for the
IgagB punishment of crime unless crime
?g?f!?| shall be punished through the regular
jjj|i||? way ? Why have a government at all ?

The struggle before th<; wavs and
meacs committee shows the iniquity ;
of the genuine j Republican, protective,j
tariff robbery. It is simply a contest j
among rich manufacturers to obtain !
i as much money as possible at the ex- i
pense of the masses. Tariff laws are j
nothing more nor less than levies'
made upon the consumers of the arti-:
i cles placed in the schedule. All the '
j sophistry of the famous Republican :
advocates, who talk so mush about j
our protection of American industries j
and American labor, and speak cf1
"Americafor Americans," &c., cannot i
conceal this plain, common sense!
truth. It is not that the manufacturer
cannot make a profit at present pricos,
but It is because be wants tins artincia;
interference, by legislation, with the
natural laws of the commercial mai ket,
so that he can make more money ?
this is why you find him talking night
and day before the committee of ways
Why should the Government be the
guardian and projector of the business
interest of any one class? Why
I should the manufacturers of woo'.en
goods claim that it is a proper function
of Government to seo that its citizens
shall pay him more than the same
articles can be bought from England
any other country? If he cairt
make money out of his business,
should Jhe farmer, the lawyer, the
doctor and everybody engaged in other
businesses be compelled to piy him a
tribute that he may grow rich ?
When the theory of protection was
first advanced, its advocates did not
dare to be so bold as to defend it upon
the ground that they needed the duties
to enable the manufacturer to se'l his
goods at a profit. It was originally
intended as a revenue measure, and
intended to operate and extend only
so far as it was necesssary to raise
sufficient funds to meet the reasonable
expenses of the' Government. It has
now been converted into a system of

everything in which hem;; or jute is
used. But when the man who grows
hemp goes to the "hearings," the
manufacturer of hemp an j jute artic es
kicks most vigorously. Why? Because
the manufacturer wants the
profit: himself, and wants his raw material
as cheap as he can get it. It is
simply a scramble, therefore, as to
who shall take the most from the consumers.

Tin Georgia newspaper-; have taken

, in the punishment of criminals. The
editors all over the country have
written and rewritten the subject
threadbaie. While the theme can
not be presented in any new phase.
, the newspapers should continue to
hammer on it, for it is only by persistence
and repetition that those
specially charged with remedying the
present state of affairs cau be impressed
with the importance of it.
Tie cccessary legislation is not easily
sugge ted. Legislation alone will not
suffice. The Augu>ta Chronicle says

to some extent, but the danger of
telling* men win sit on juries that they
ht?ve lailed to convict because they are
weak is t^at such a ourse nrght react,
and jure.-? might convict simply
becaiiv: of the fear of resting under
the imputation of being weak men.
The best way to have the evil removed,
it seems to us, is prompt
trials. This would necessitate more
stei"Sa_pf our courts, but it is very
likely tharihe result would more :Jnn
compensate fortjwaiditioi al expense.
Unfortunately the Icrag. and tedious
process of carrying a casethrough our
courts is no: onuu2d to criminal
cases. Civil cases affecting property
rights han? in our courts until they
are musty with the cob-webs of I?gal
rules and practices There is n?
reason why it should take over a year
to end a case; and yet if an opposing
attorney so desires he can easily block
your case for at least this long. This
discourages litigant?, for in this day
of the telegraph, the fast trains, and
all of the wonderful inventions by
which the transaction of business has
been facilitated, men of business do
not care to wait on our conns for
their money. It is surprising that
this has not been more impressed
upon tlio legal fraternity. More terms
of court would tend to obviate this
delay, and with some changes made
in our Code of Civil Procedure a
litigant might expect his money in a

that the irregular shaped districts

same section of the State will be incorporated
into the same district.

The Aiken Journal and Review
gives the following strong reasons
why the County Commissioners' reports

Editor McSweeney, of the Hamptcvj
Guardian, who will soon be our Lieu.tenant
Governor, in speaking of Mr.
Burn's blH to abolish the constabulary
of tiie dispensary law comments as
The suggestion of Mr. Burns j?
worthy of the most careful consideration
at the bands of the Legislature.
The presence of Slate constables, apparently
a sort of foreign fore.', has
not bean pleasing to the different commuuitie3
in which they have been assigned
to duty. Much of the friction
has been attributed, by the enemies of
the law, to this state of things. There
is not much strength in this position.
But if the machinery of the law cai*
be so arranged as to give not even a
pretext for any niich criticism, and at
the same time not interfere with its
proper enforcement, such a step would
be very generally approved
The position of the Guardian towards
the dispensary system is well
understood. Regarding it as the best
attainable solution of the liquor question
in South Carolina, we have al
ways stood tor its rigid enrorcement?
and this, also, because every law
should be duly and honestly enforced.
At the same time we recognize the
-weM _no lajv_can
be enforced by mere force. livery
law needs for iis life and permanence
the moral support of the community
upon whose conduct and ir.teicsts it
mnst operate. Any changc in (he
dispensary svstem, which looks t > increasing
:i (1 strengthening its hold
upon the moral support of the people,
without impairing its efficiency, must
be productive of good Whether the
plan proposed by Mr. Burns would do
this, we are not prepared, upon a
limited consideration of the matter, to
say. But it certainly deserves the
careful attention of the Legislature.
It is well for every interest that
there can now be a calm, dispassionate
discussion of all questions growing
out of the dispensary law. In such a
state of the pat lie mind there is betlei
opportunity, for the press aud for the
law makers, to consider the subject ic
all its bearings, and to do with it thai
which is the very best u~d?r existing
The Greenville Xews thinks that il
would be a gocd idea to abolish the
constabulary feature of the dispensarj
law, but that it would bi be:ter tc
wipe out the whole business.
