next year aod tarn McKtnley and his
crowd out. Carl Scbura, a mougnt
fal philosopher and f-cho!ar, 9aj8 that
the issue of imperialism is far more
dan^erom to the country than free
coinage of silver. If the couutrv is to
b8 saved from the hands of the conspirators,
all lovers of the fundamental
principles of our institutions must
bury lets important is.ues nexc year,
aud make a strong and united fight
against imperialism.
A dispatch from Washington a few
d *ya ago tends to show bow fa*t we
are moving. Ir was stated that Admiral
Schley has fled a requet-t with the
sreretery of the navy to increase the
Sju'h Atlantic squadron, wh'ch is
under his command. The reason
stated for this request wa? '''.be belief
that before long it will bd nect ssary
for the United Slates to make a
naval demonstration on the. coast of
South Africa." The request has not
been acted upon, but the reason given
for the request U very iutere*ting.
Why should the United States care to
make a iiaral demonstration on the
coast of South Africa? Wbat hare
they to do with South Africa anyway?
A tew years ago, the suggestion woull
have been litliculed We believed
then in attending to oar own business,
but the Spanish war has changed
things. We hare fallen no x into the
habit of aping England, and we must
keep it np. England is fighting in
Sonth Africa, and Uncle Sam's ships
innst bang around there.
"Should ihe talked of coalition
against Eng lan-,2, it If stated, develop
into a fact the administration would
iecd a fleet to the scene of trouble."
Tdis is very interesting if true, and it
may be true. England has been in
the l&nd grabbing business a long
time, and she is now after the gold in
the Tranvaal. The Republican administration
is something of a grabber itself
when it comes to tfce filthy lucre.
Isn't that why it wants the Phi'.lipines?
Here U the biud then between England
and the administration. Such is the
result of our new policy of imperialism;
it is bound 'o lead "to entangling
One of the first men to enchain public
attention and make a name lor himself
in the American-Spanish war was
Victor Blue, of South Carolina. Other
performances during the war were
more ?pectacu!ar perhaps than his, but

of ao individual was more important.
IThen Victor Bine landed on the
island of Cuba and undertook a circuit
of the city of Santiago he took
bis life in his own hands. In a conntry
where he could not speak the language.
where he koew not a single1
individual, and where the topography
of the lan I was ea'irely unknown, he
seJ; out alons to spy oat the position
arid itrength of the enemy's forces.
He rnwde bis way around Santiago and
th3 entire forces of the enemy and
brought back information to our commanders
0!) lao'J and sea that was absolutely
invaluable and which stamped
him as a man of dauntless courage and
a cool head. Uutil h? made the circuit
of Santiago and looked down on the I
giiips in the harbor, it was not absolu'ely
kaown whether Cerera's fleet
was in hiding there or not.
Now thai Ail !he promiuent figure*
in the late war, and some that were
not nearly so conspicuous as "Victor
Blue, havt been presented with swords
or loving tups by their admiring fellow
citizen?, it seems to us that South
Carolina i< neglecrful of her heroic
son in not giving him some substantial
testimonial of the appreciation and
admiration of his people for the honor
which he has done the State in his
heroic services to !he nation at a critiea!
Testimonials of this character msk#
priceiesi neiriooim iu ? lamuj, auu
when people opruly testify their appreciation
of heroic coDduet it furnishes
inspiration for others when the occasion
requires. We never saw Victor
Blue nor any relative of his so far as we
know, and da not know anybody that
is personaliy interested iu securing to
bim this honor from his State, but we
feel that he richly deserve* such a testimonial
from the people among1 whom
he lives, and we take tbis liberty of
making the suggestion that it i* not
too late to do honor to this brave son
of S?ath Carolina.?Aagu^ia Herald.
Th8 matter was mentioned in the
General Assembly, but some v?ry
economical members cried "extravagance
and hard times," and it wa?
very properly dropped, the general
opinion being that the least said ahont
it after that the better.
The armament used both in Great
Bri'ainand the United States now is,
thf.t a rash or unprincipled government
may declare var at any time,
however unjcstly; and every one mast
uphold the war or be a traitor. Debate
in Parliament showed pla!?ly the
spirit of the opposition to be that
since war has begun Britain must
carry it through; but it is a rascally
war nevertheless. This way of deprecating
a measnre and then upholding
it is rninoas to honesty in government.
It enables sndacions administrations
to carrr thing* with a high Laud, and
the opposition may sit astride of the
fence auy try to please both sides,
wbispering to one, "This is an ontrage,
bat we can't help it;" and calling
to ;he other, "We ara wrh yon, rigi.t
or wrong." Wiilia.n Pitt wa* a bigger
man than that. Giadston-; w^s a
bigger man than that. And it will fce
foe ad ibat there are statesmen in the
Uaited States who are bigger men
than thit.
It is repotted that several members
of the Baptist convention in YorkvilJe
spoke on education aid wne unaoi
moQS in opposition to iree mmuii iu
the State colleges. These gentlemen
forget that in the eye of the State all
the people of the Slate are citizens of
the .State first, and Baptists, Methodtsts
and so forth afttrwards. They
are just as mach bound to their State
colleges through their representatives
as they are to their denominational
colleges through their conventions,
conferences and synods The denominational
college is no more a private
eollege than ihe State college. One is
goremea oy a reugious uigau^o. ivu
and the other by a political organization;
and each organization makes
many pf-ople Bnoport its institution
whether they wi*h to do so or not.
There ?rn ,no private coilegei in vhe
State. The method of pacing roand

has Deei) v>;itten j;j:d published in the
newspapers of the = a:!antrv displayed
by generals in leading their men in
charges against the enemy's ]ine=, javl
at tbe opportune time, and often turning
a defeat into a brilliant victory ;
but it is seldom that such yaiiait
leadership at such times, by individual
members of the rank and file, is even
published in tbe newspapers, ran-.n
less to find its way in history. Brt I
propose first, to give your readers ray
recollections of the battle, as participated
in, by the 2nd S. C. Regiment
on toe occasion related below, which
will lead 3 our readers through the surrounding
circamstances and to the
point in the crisis of the battle which
j impelled Sergeant Rembert to per!
form the heroic deed.
1 Kershaw's Brigade had takes their
j position in line, and had hastily thrown
I up temporary breast-works for our
defence, and feeling ourselves about
ready for the enemy's advance/ which
we were momentarily expecting. It
j was then that the startling newi
j reached us that ihe enemy had broken
I our lines on our right and were in
I possession of oar fortifications tuere,
jtnd tbat the 2nd S. C. Regiment and
the 3rd Baitallion of Kershaw's Brigade
wsre ordered by General Kershaw
to go to the right, and storm and
retake the works, out of which onr
forces had been driven, and behind
which the enemy were posted. We
dreaded this move, knowiDg that it
was a desperale undertaking to drive
the enemy out of this position, aad
tbat if it conld be dons it must be done
quickly, as th-3 enemy would as quickly
a6 possible push forward his reinforcements
for the impending battle.
We obeyed the order of our geueral,
however, (with uucomplinieniary remarks
against those who would not
hold their lines) and started on cur
i oka nnHprfakincr. While en
j uMvtw. ?D - ..
j route for the battle-field we met those
j making their way to the rear, who
j bad been driven out of the fortificai
tione, which we were then going to
| take. We called on them to go back
I with us aud help us take the works.
Some of thim could not stand the appeals,
which were showered on them
thick and fast, aod joined us in the

fortifications, which we stormed ana

field about one-fourib of a

nating at a skirt of woods and on
elevated ground. It was in this skirt
of woods, just at the edgy ot the field
the enemy were po?!e-1 lehiod the
breastworks iat?!y held by our forces.
Abont 200 yaids in tr >nt of the fortifications,
on an incine from the fortifications
an i parallel with ihern lay a
depression or a ravine, wi;h elevated
ground to iho i\ar over which we had
sdv<ir.oed and to the front where the

ravine and aligned for the final charge,

th* rt-eimenr, raised hie cap, waved it
above bis head, and started for tbe

was the charge made that we lost but
men and drove tha ?,nemv out of
the fortification, re-establishing the
Confederate lir.e and capturing the

before, and had he lived long enough
to have completed the history whish
the Legislature appointed him to compile,
tnis incident of Sergeant Rembert
would have been recorded as a part of
that history, I have no doubt.
I have written this article in justice
;o the name of the gallant sergeant,
whom I have learned is sow dead, so
that th:s incident of him can be perpvtuated
by his relatives, by hi* friends
and bv the gallant people of Sumter
