How and why the war ever slat d
in the Pailippine* wa*a debatable
question at the time. It was alleged
in some quarters that the v-ar wa< a
deep laid schema to force ih'i people
of this oantry to cjnse.>t to taking
the islands. Once pet yonr foot into j
it and you can't get it on-, was wh??t!
was desired.
It is made almost certain now, upon
creditable testimony, that there his j
been a systematic raisrepresentatior. of
the real conditions in the Philippiuesf
and still more startling revelations
inay be made before the year is out.
Toe deception that has been pract'eed
in referenco to this war should warn
the people of the danger that is ahead
of them. It will tend to create distrust
of the motives of those in high
authority, and it is another illustration
of how unsnited our system of
government is for colonial possesions.
Tho correspondents of numerous
newspapers, expansion organs as well
as anti-expansion, j jined in a statement
of grievances and it makes a f-trong
indictment against General Otis and
indirectly of Mr. McEinley's administration.
The correspondents protested
to Gen. Otis that owing to the censorship
of th3ir despatches the people of
the United States were deceived as to
the act ail state of affairs. Even their
formulated statement conld not pass
the tensor? bat bad to be carried to
Hong K?ng to escape the eyes of
/?anar?r Thfiv assert that the official
dispatches made public at Washington
do not correctly tell the story in the
Philippines. They deny tha willingness
of tie volunteers to continue in
the cause, as so often stated in official
di?patche3. "The censorship has compelled
us to participate in this misrepresentation,
by excusing or altering
uncontroverted statements of facts,
on the pleas, as Gen. Otis stated, that
they would alarm the people at home,
or have the people of the United States
by the ears." The correspondents
sn&cificillv charge: "prohibition of
hospital reports; suppression of fell
reports offisid operations in liie event
of failare; namber of heat prostrations
in the field; systematic minimization of
naval operations, and suppression of
complete reports of the situation."
This statement is made over the
signature of each correspondent. The
officials at Washington say that they
will pay no attention to it. Hereafter
tie people will hardly credit official
news from the Philippines.
A Spaktak*utjg correspondent of
the News and Courier writes:

and yet it lies idle. ,
A Dearborn correspondent of the
Lancaster Enterprise writes the following:

above Rocky Mount, there lived an

It is certainly gratifying to the public
to know of one concern in the land j
who are not afraid to be generous to ,
the needy and suffering. The proprietors

It will be reaiemberfed that at the
October election there was a general
movemest of voters in the back country
to exercise the right of suffrage at
the polls in the several parishes. Io
some places they were permitted to

question, but when Montague dissolved

In March there was uncertainty also.
The petition of Patrick Calhoun and
others shows that there was a general
denial of the right of the back-settlers
to vote except in Prince William's
Parish. At St. Paul's there was a riot
that broke up the polls before the hour
of legal closing. This was made the
matter of investigation. On tbe 20th
July, 176D, Pinckney, for the committee,
reported that the riot had arisen
from the attempt made by James Mayson.
.Tohn Savage and others from the
vicinity of Ninety-Six to vote at the
church p 01. The committee finds that
ice bourne of this parish are definitely

In the opinion of the committee the

Matters were moving on to a settlement;
however. The wants of the
baek country were receiving attention,
and the settlers tbemseives were disposed
to be more law-abiding
On the 5th of December, 1769, when
the Assembly met, Patrick Calhoun

from Prince William's, and Benjamin

Petitions poured in for the improvement
of the back country. A road
was needed from Eaoree River to Confaree,
(p. 204), along Little River, &c.
andry petitions from settlers along
Broad* and -Saludy Rivers demanded
ferries, and the Assembly were inclined
to hear them.
Still the Couuty Court Act was in
the future. The people were worn
out with waiting, while a dilatory
ministry neglected the matter.
The objection raised by the king to
the county court act was that it provided
for the appointment of the
judges during good behavior, without
stating that they should be removed
on the address of two-ttards ci tne
members of both Houses, aiter tltd
analogy of Great Britain where the
Act of Settlement provides that judges
cho3eu to serve daring good bebavior
are subject to removal on an address
of both Houses of Parliament. His
Majesty also disapproved of ths provision
that the county court should
select three persons of wbom the Governor
must appoint one sheriff, because
the crown should have full discretion
in the selection of this officer.
