The sack containing the paper mail
Saturday morning was taken uy by the
mail messenger here in badly mutila
ted condition. It looked as though it
had passed through a cyclone. When
thrown off the mail-car the suction
from the swiftly morning train sucked
the sack beneath the wheels. It was
dirty, greasy, and cut almost into sec
tions, and the paper and merchandise
it contained torn and mutilated. The
postmaster had a fine time sorting the
odds and ends and putting this and
that properly together.

last Wednesday, to reopen after Holi

The closing should have taken place a
month or six weeks ago. The throat
trouble now raging some doctors call
it diptheria, and others give it anoth
er name this epidemic, whatever it
may be termed, might have been
checked long ago if the approved meth
od of isolation had been resorted to.
Unhappily this was not done, and the
consequeuce. to a great extent, is sick
ness and death to many a family which
might have been spared. But, better
late than never; and we hope the di
rectors may see their way clear to keep
the schools closed until the epidemic
shall have passed away.
La3t Thursday night a young Gen
tlemen from Michigan was thrown
from a freight train north of Hogan by
the head brakeman, while the train
was running at the rate of several miles
an hour. The youth was beating his
way south. His leg was broken by
the fall, and be lay by the side of the
track several hours until he was seen
by some of the local railroad men, who
took him up and carried him to Hogan
station. There he lay all day Friday,
the railroad authorties at headquarters
refusing to have the company take
charge of him. Sheriff Fisher was
applied to, but he had no right to put
the county to charges for the care of
the unfortunate youth. Finally, one
of the pusher boys brought him to Ar
cadia ana sent to ironton lor uc.
Strong: who went over, dressed the
wound, and set the leg, and had him
transported to Mrs. Weathers' board
ing-house. There he lies now, and
will no doubt recover in due time; but
his experience of the past week will
always form a fervid chapter of his life
Mrs. P. O'Brien has leased the Arca
dia House and grounds, and is even
now having the place gone over pre
paratory to making extensive improv
ments. The lease runs for five years,
with the option, at the end of that per
iod, of re-leasing for another fire years.
The old outbuildings are being cleared
away, and new additions will be built
this winter and 6pring. The main
building will'be put in thorough re
pair, and the grounds improved. A
music hall, a building for the accom
modation of children during inclement
weather, and a smoking room for gen
tle men, will be built separate and
apart from the hotel proper. The lat
ter will be something alter the style
of the Log Cabin at Graniteville, so
well and favorably known to the many
friends of the genial vice-president of
the Syenite Granite company, and will
be placed close to the famous spring

those sparkling, cooling, flowing wa
ters. In a word, the old-time lustre of
the Arcadia House in its palmiest days
will be taken on again, and new at
tractions added, lbe lady who has
taken it in charge is fully equal to the
task 6he has assumed, aad wo predict
for her success and prosperity.
The young German who had his leg
fractured by jumping from a freight
train last Thursday night, tells his
story as follows: He had boarded the
train at Arcadia, intending to beat his
way southward, hoping to find work
at one of the sawmills along the line.
A few miles below Arcadia he was
observed by the brakeman. who want
ed to know what be was doing there
and where he was going. The Ger
man told him. "Have you any mon
ey?" was the next query. No, he
hadn't a cent. "Have you nothing to
pay for riding? Haven't you a pocket-knife?"
Yes, he had a pocketknife,
but he didn't want to part with it.
"Then hit the ground!" The train at
this time was moving rapidly. "I tell
you to hit the ground!" The German
got on the ladder leading from the
top of the car, but when be saw how
fast the train was running, he begged
to be permitted to remain until the
next stopping-place. "Hit the ground,
I tell you!" was the answer, and the
brakeman made a motion with his feet
as if to mash the fingers holding on
to the ladder. Therefore the trespass
er let go and "bit the ground" 60 for
cibly as to bruise his body and break
his leg. As soon as he had sufficiently
recovered be crawled to the bushes
and broke off a couple of sticks, and
aided by these he hobbled his way to
Hogan, a mile distant. When the local
railroad men learned how he bad been
treated they were very indignant and
did all they could to relieve him.
They telegraphed to headquarters and
notified the local civil authorities, but
both declined to give assistance the
former because the injured man had
been hurt while trespassing, and the
latter because he was a non-resident
and not entitled to aid from the coun
ty. If the young man's story is true,
the actioa of the brakeman was cold
blooded and cruel, and. we take pleas
ure in saying, unusual to railroad men,
who generally are more leinient in
such cases than the rules of the road
strictly construed permit. The young
man tells his story without bitterness
and is apparantly a well-meaning man.
He makes no threats, and ia very
grateful to the physician and other
good Samaritians who have taken him
in, in the scriptural, not the latter-day
About three months since we took
occasion to call attention to the man
egement of the city finances, and for
that bit of insolence were jumped on
to as the duck is said to have gone for
the june-bug. We wanted to know
what had been done with the city's
revenues for the year ending March 1,
1894, and why a public exhibit had not
been made of the receipts and disburse
ments. In our poor way we endeav
ored to approximate the receipts and
the usual expenditures for salaries and
incidentals, and then asked to be in
formed as to what had been done with
the residue. In reply the mayor and
and a part of the council wrote a very
long letter, specifically setting forth,
item by item, the expenditures subse
quent to the period about which inqui
ry had been made; but not a word let
ting light into the expenditures of the
preceding year the year in question.
It is true the letter claimed there was
a balance in the treasury at the end of
that year, of $372.28; but how that
balance was determined no man, ex
cept those on the inside, knows to this
day. The officials claim that no finan
cial statement for the year ending
March 1, 1894, could be made "be
cause the records were burned" the
December preceding, and there were
no means for getting at the receipts
and dispursements. Then how werip

question, propounded time and againi
no answer has been given, and wa
leave this section of the matter for the
present. Monday, December 10th,
was the time appointed by ordinance
for settlement with the collector, but
for some reason unknown to the un
initiated it was decided to let the meet
ing of the council for that day go by,
The law (Sec. 3, Ord. 7) says: "The
Collector 6hall make a general settle
ment on the second Monday of Decem
ber, in each year, of all collections
made during the year; and at which
time be shall deliver to the Mayor and
Council, then in session, a complete
and correct list of unpaid taxes, to
gether with description of the real es
tate upon which taxes are due, and
unpaid." Notwithstanding this man
aatory provision, tne meeting, as
above stated, was permitted to lapse;
but later in the week a meeting was
called for the 17th, to enable the May
or to resign, and the Collector was no
tified to be present and settle. When
the time came, the Mayor resigned,
his resignation to take effect Decern
ber 31st, and an election ordered to be
held that day to fill tne vacancy; but
the Collector did not put in an appear
ance, being absent from the city.
Next day the question came up as to
whether an election could be called to
fill a vacancy which did not exist at
the time the call was made; and to
make all things sure, the Mayor again
called the council in session Tuesday
afternoon, when his resignation was
tendered and received outright, and
the election duly ordered for the 31st
This time the Collector was on hand,
but he said that he was unable to make
his settlement then because he had
loaned out a portion of the city's mon
ey, and asked to have his settlement
continued to January! To this the
complaisant authorities gave their as
sent. Why wasn't a settlement had,
and the status of the city's finances
definitely determined, regardless of
the condition of the collector's pocket-
DOoKr it, wnen tne balance due was
determined, the collector was unable
to pay over that balance, that would
come up as an after consideration ; but
it was the bounden duty of the Mayor
and Council to have a settlement,
money or no money. We are informed
that this is not the first time there has
been a failure to make the settlements
required oy law. mere is a rumor
afloat that in the fall of 1893 a meet
ing of the Council was had for the
purpose of settling with the Collector,
at which he did not appear. Is this
rumor true? Is it true that after his
failure to appear at the above named
meeting another meeting was called
for the express purpose of settling with
him, and on that day he went hunting?
t is true that he has not mad a bi
monthly settlement as marshal by law
for many months. Is it true that the
deputy Collector has the Collector's re
ceipte for nearly five hundred dol-
ars, and that there has actually been
paid into the treasury only one hun
dred and seventy-two dollars and fifty
cents since last April? What has be
come of the balance? Why is it not
in the treasury, into which the law
says it must De "promptly paid." II
these things are true, why are they
permitted by those in authority over
the officers? The Charter says that
the Mayor shall take care that the
laws of the State and the ordinances
of the oity are duly enforced, respect
ed and observed" which injunction
applies to the Council as well in its
province. The Register ask you,
gentlemen, have you seen that the pro
visions of the law and the ordinances
in relation to the City Collector and
the City finances have been "enforced,
respected and observed?" If not, why
not? Our article upon these matters
of a few months ago created consider
able heat because certain officials of
the municipality regarded it as an in
timation that they had been guilty of
corrupt practices. No such construc
tion could be fairly placed upon it, nor
nor was any intimation intended. We
did then, as we do now, charge laxity in
the administration of the city's finan
ces, which, if continued, must result
n corruption and also in disaster to
the city. We don't even now say that
the Collector has permanently mis
appropriated the funds in his hands, or
that he will not be able to command a
clean balance-sheet when he does set
tle. But he should have been required
to do his duty according to law. As it
is, if, in the end, there should be a
shortage, it is doubtful that a dollar
could be collected from the sureties, if
they chose to make it a test of law.
We hope that the resolution may bo
formed and hereafter strictly adhered
to, to rigidly enforce every law and
compel all officials to do their whole
duty to the city and the people, "re
gardless." The Cackling ot Geese.

Francis L. Russell.
Framcis L. Russell died Thursday
Dec. 13, at 7:30 o'clock at the Horine
residence on Broadway in the midst of
bis family, after a painful illness of
over six weeks' duration. Mr. Russell
moved to Columbia some weeks ago in
the hope that the medical attention
which he would receive would check
the progress of disease.
He was born in Columbia in July,
1852 and was the oldest son of Col. F.
T. Russell. In 1875 he married Miss
Florence Hayden of Iron county, and
since that time he has resided upon
his farm west of Columbia.
Mr. Russell leaves a wife and two
sons, Francis and Clarence, to mourn
the loss of a kind husband and father.
For over 18 years Mr. Russell had been
member of the Presbyterian church.
and to-morrow afternoon at 1 o'clock
funeral services will be held in the
Presbyterian church by Rev. F. W.
Sneed, after which he will be laid by
lbe side of his father and mother in
the Columbia cemetry.
Mr. Russell was a man whose loss
will be felt in this county. Upright,
honorable in his dealings, he possessed
many friends who will read the an
