It is natural for the people of the
South to oppose bitterly the carpetbag
gorarnaaest of Puerto Rico. They
know wfcat the iniquity is, bat it i?
not the South a;one that deuoane?8 the
rale of the carpet-baggert. The Northi
last and West are against it. TPhat
could he stronger than this from the
Philadelphia Record: . '
"Se gross in its iaiqaity is this civil
government scheme that its advocates
in the hocse dare not afford time and
opportunity to its oppoaents to discuss
its nrovisions. With the pretense
of conferring on the people of Porto;
Ricoalo?al legislature the bill can-,
ningly deprives that body of every at-j
tribute of legislative power. There is j
not aa act of the so-called 'house of|
delegates' that is not made subject to
the veto ?f a carpet-bag executive)
council. To this council is given ex- j
elusive control of all legislation con- J
eerning the grant of franchise* ana j
pririleges on the island, whether of j
railroads, telegraphs or waterworks.!
An arbitrary minister of Charles II!
would have been ashamed 'o send!
over snch a charter for a New England
colony as this Foraker bill for the;
government of Porto Rico. Under
Spanish rule Jthe Puertoriquenos had j
at least representation in the c?rtez atj
Madrid, and some voice in the management
ttheir own affairs. Instead of
this modicum of self-government the
bill about to pass the house gives the
"PnorfnrirtTjftnos an Sexecntive council
of strangers, with power to despoil
them oft'd8ir dearest franchises and
The plea is made, however, that
President McKinley in the mercifnl
exercise of his power will so constitute
the exeeative coancil of Porto
Itieethat a majority of its members
will be natives of the island. It comes
to this, then?that the only defense of
the Portoriqaenos against an arbitrary
and iniqaitons aefc ?f congress is
in the forbearance and moderation of
the executive. President McKinley
may or he may not resist the clamor
. of his partisans for office and spoils in
Porto Rico, and liG may or saay not
refrain from patting a majority of
carpet-baggers in control of the island

iaiquity. As a means of patting

of strangers it is worse than any
carpet-bag device for ruling the south1
era states during the gloony period
of reconstruction."
Another thing that has struck us is
that so many norther papers now condemn
"the carpet-bag device" whick
was applied to the South in reconstruction
North Carolina's Democratic C*avenfcion
is said to kave been a very
represeatative body, ana the ticket
nominated is ceasidered a stroag one.
The fight in North Caroliaa this year
will be over an amendment to the constitution
similar to the provision in the
constitution of this State as to the
. right of suffrage. The people of Nortb
Carolina have twiee eadared negro
supremacy, and they are determined
to gaard against a repetition of it.
The Charlotte Observer makes some
wise suggestions to Democratic speak
ers when it saye:
Before the campaign opens we woald
cantion Democratic speakers against
unnecessary violence of deaunciation
in their disenssion of the constitutional
amendment. The white, people of
North Carolina know the negro?he
has no business in politics and is soon
to get out; bn? he i?. not the worst
possible laborer or citizen, and he is
Bot a whit worse than he was before
this proposition was made to disfranchise
him. Ths presentation of exaggerated
views #f his vices and deficiencies
will net fool the white people
among whom he lives, nor add anything
to the strengh of the amendment,
while it will not improre bis
temper nor make a better man of him.
He is ignorant and misjfnided?willingly
misguided,, and fer the reason
that he uniformly votes against the
interest of the white man aad his own
ha should not be permitted to rote at
all; but it isn't worth while to paint
k iina blacker than he is for every effective
point is favor of the amendment
?and there are many??an be made
within the boondary ?f truth and justice.
It is enotgh tuat the black man
hat no aae sense of his responsibility
at a voter. That it nffieient reason
for his disfranchisement withoat representing
him as sack a monster as the
white people amonjf whom he lives
know him not to b?.
The Observer is rifht. Tha nejro
is sot so bad when left to hi.nself. It
is when he is iifiaenced by mean
white men that he becomes ia>_,;?rou8
and tarbnlent.
Tse reports as to-the saccess of the
railroad operators' strike are so con-;
flicting that it is impossible to decide
whether the strike is a siccess or not.
Locally it ssems to be a failure. \Ve !
know nothing of the cauias Icadinj to
the strike. Natnally people will.sym-'
pathize with tho operators, but they I
ahanld so conduct themselves as tr j
deserve sympat'ay. The destruction of
property will prejudice outsiders1
against the operators and the leaders
amoag them should counsel against j
this coarse. Arty mat dissatisfied
with his job has the lawful right to
quit, out he i&s aot the right to destroy
bis employer's property. Wej
hope that the differences will be ad- J
justed. Strikes are new in the South.!

Your Kidneys,
Unhealthy Kidneys Make Impure Blood.
All the blood in your body passes through
your kidneys once every three minutes.
fThe kidneys are your i
blood purifiers, they fil- i
ter out the waste or
impurities in the blood, j
If they are sick or out ;
of order, they fail to do '
their work.
Pains, aches an d rheumatism
come from excess
of uric acid in the
blood, due to neglected
kidney trouble.
Kidney trouble causes quick or unsteady
heart beats, and makes one feel as though
they had heart trouble, because the heart is i
over-workin? in Dumoine thick, kidney- ;
poisoned blood through veins and arteries. j
It used to be considered that only urinary
troubles were to be traced to the kidneys, ,
but now modern science proves that nearly .
all constitutional diseases have their begin- (
ning in kidney trouble.
If you are sick you can make no mistake
by first doctoring your kidneys. The mild
and the extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy is (
soon realized. It stands the highest for its ,
wonderful cures of the most distressing cases

ia whieh * youag South Carolinian
played a conspicuous part. Lieut.
MeMaster is a sou of the l?te Col.
F. W. MeMaater who is well known
is Winnsboro:
Oa the merning ef the 3rd of December
abont li o'clock, A eompany,
our advmm party, was fired en bf
the insurrectors frem their mountain
intrencbments. Bat the moment the
firing: eoiaaanced, Lieat. McMas;er,
under orders from Captain Batchelor,
at onee deployed his company to the
right and opened fire en the iisurrectos
from the opposite hills, but finding
their firs inefeetire from so great a
distance, moved on dowa the gulch
that was eorered with high grass, and
fallen trees, reeentty felled by the
enemy as an impediment, and on np
the mountain occupied by the insurgents,
and while under a galling fire
charged their entrenehments, killiDg 6
and wounding 17, eecnring many
roands of ammunition, riles, horses
and prisoners. While H company,
lead by Lieutenant McMaster, was
working its way through the gulch to
charge the enemy, A, F, and K companies
kept up a deadly fire holding
them in tteeir trenches, killing and
woandiag many, whea they were
forced to beat a retreat.
All went well until the 7th when the
battalion moved forward with H company
in advaahe. Everything was in
perfect order and the beys were itching
for a ssrap. They did not h^vo
loag to wait, for tke battalien had net
been oa the march more than two hours
when H eompany's advance gnard os
nearing the hanks of the Rio Grande,
preparatory to crossing the river and
entering the city of Nsguilion, were
fjreetsd with a volley of Remingtok
and Mauser bullets, bat tke boys were
equal te the emergen ly and in le?s
than 3 minutes tke entire battalioa
was deployed and pouriag volley after
velley into the very trenches of the
eceny. Tke irisurrectos knew it
would certainly be a long range fight,
as the river was at least 2 hundred
yards wide aad unfordakle, and tkey
held their strong stations behind eatrenchments.
The boys made several
sharges to the very water's edge bat
were nnable to unlodge the enemy.
After aboat2 hours fighting of this
kind in whieh we had 3 atea wounded,
Lieat iicMaatar called tor volunteers
to swim the river with him, under a
deadly fire, flank the enemy, drivs
them from their trenches, when the
battalioa would make short work ef
them. Among those who volaateercd
to ge were, Lieut. Miller, Corporal

?kbs and belts of ammuailioa with
them, all reaching the baHk in jafetj
except Corporal J?hnson, who was
tilled within a few feet of the bank,
?nee on shore, with a yell and volley
that sent the fear of Cod threngh the
insarrectoi, they eharged their entrenchment*
and sect them helterskelter
from their stronghold*, and
the battalion oa the opposite bank

could ran oat of reach of the deadly
Kra?. Caaaaltie* to the battalion

13 killed 76 wounded. So

TKs state.
iVetCtf and Courier.
We printed a week or two ago a
dispatch fro? Mnllica Hill, N. J., announcing
the [startling discovery of
the. interment "of a living person at
thai; place. As reported in the dispatch:
"An andertaker waseshamins:
bodies of members of the Switzer
family, who died some years ago, for
reinterment in Philadelphia. Ose coffin
contained the skeleton of a boy,
and its condition told of an awfnl
struggle after burial. The legs were
drawn np aBd the arms were oxtended
acrc3s tne iaee. xse jiass uc ? .>ifin
was broken and the position of tbe
body and condition of the coffin indicated
that the victim of the misr&ke
bad died in terrible agony."
Oh Friday Pincksey Sizemore, S5
years ,old, "eellapstfiT'' in a magistrate's
office in Greenville, and was
proaonnced dead. "Tbe body was removed
to his home, and there the
coroner's jury, on the statement of tbe
doctors, rendered a verdict of death
from heart failure. The laneral >7as
set for Saturday atternoon. Tbe jrrave
was dHg, the mourners had assembled
and the body was abo*t to be interred,
when the police appeared and ordered
a postponement. The police bad bee*
informed by Dr. W. J. Braaalett tkat
be did not believe Sizemore was dead,
and this caused their summtjy action.
Tbe bGdy was taken home and a test
which, confirmed the su?pi?i?n
that the man was not dead. While
having the appearaace of death so far
as his {face was concerned, bii body
was warm, and breathing could he
delected by tte use of a mirror at the
meuth. The jaws were set and the
papils of the eyes irresponsive to
lifht, but the ioiats were as supple as
ia life." "Sizemore's family," it was
stated in conclusion, "are in a aervous
state, aad doctors are doing evervthiBg
to farther heart actio*. No
burial will tak* place uaiil the evidences
of death have become unmistakable."
There the story wads abruptly, and
we are uaable to say, therefore,
whether Mr. Sizemore is now alive or
sot, as we have seen ao account of his
subsequent experience or condition ia
the Greenville papers. Whether he
be aow living or dead, however, it is
plain that he very narrowly escaped
being buried alive, with all the horrible
ineidenta of that fate, as itdieated
in the 3Jew, Jersey case, aid the
oie plaia and imperative lessoa of all
such ocearrenees ehoald not loeger
be disregarded by the people and lawmakers
of the State. "No burial"
should he allowed to "take plaee aatil
the evidences of death have become
anmistakahle" to lay persoa Of ordinary
iatolligeaeo. "The doctors," it
may be said with all the respect due
to them, eaa make mistakes, as they
made ia this case, in the case in the
Ifew Jersey town, is. the ease reported
a few weeks ago fr?m St. Leais, in
the ease reported is Edgefield (Joanty,
as we iemember, a few years ago, in
the ease reported from Montgomery,
Ala., aboat the sa*e tine, and in ?ot
a few other cases which have beea reported
im years past. It will be remembered
that at lsast one such instant*
has oscurred in Charleston.
One of the Ramiavs, a relative of the
wite of Henrv Laurens, the President
of the Continental7 Congress, revived,
as recorded, after having bee* "pronounced
dead/' and ker narrow escape
from beiag baried so impressed
him that he forbade the interment of
his hody after death, aad ordered it t?
be burned iastead, which was done,
affordisg the first example of cremation
in this country.
