The Press and Banner.
ABBEVILLE, S. C. Wednesday, Nov. 23, 1887. Tike Slubject Being; "Dignity."* The article In last week's Press. and Banner in reference to the Register* nd the "<:.grity" of the office of Circuit Judge, seems not have been plain to the Register. Our editoria' was prompted chiefly by the editorial of a uri i brother on the subject, which was copied Into the Register, as we presumed, with its endorsement of what was snld. The rural brother referred to, as is his custom, did not name the Press and Banner, and. in this instance, u?ed the name of the Register when it is clear to us, he meant the Press and Banner. In like manner, we replied, using the name of the Register for the reason that this rural brother omitted our name, and because we understood the Register to endorse the article which itobpled. To turn to the subject of "dignity" as applied to the Circuit Court: 1. %Ve believe that each anil every one of the distinguished gentlemen who hold the office of Circuit Judge is entitled to the personal distinction of dignity, with all the honors which that, word Implies. 2. We believe the office of Circuit Judge has been shorn of the dignity which was once supposed to attach to that office. i We deny that the"dignity" of that office 1? affected by the salary of the officer. In South Carolina there is something else than money necessary to confer dignity upon the man and the officer. t:. 4. If Judge Orr felt humllated in holding the office Of Judge, and traversing the country , holding courts to try offenders against the law in hiBday, what humiliation must the Circuit Judges of to-day be subjected to in the trial of cases which are scarcely worthy oi the notice of a respectable Trial Tustice? 5. We contend that when our Circuit Judges nre put to the business of enquiring whether a negro stole a watermelon, a pocket full of peaches, an apron full of corn, or killed a pig, or whether he robbed a chicken coop, the word "dignity" should become obsolete in connection with the office of Circuit Judge. Doesn't the Circuit Judge make a spectacle before the people when he is required by law to umpire a quarrel between jealous negro women: 6. We wish It distinctly understood that we believe it is tbe Legislature and not our Judges that have deprived the office of ; Circuit Judge of its former dignity. Fourfifths of the work iu the Goneral Sessions should be done by the Trial Justice. 7. We say, let the Legislature restore to the office of Circuit Judge to something of its former dignity, by relieving tho Judges from bearing trifling eases at immense cost of the people. If this cannot be done then reduce the salary of Circuit Judge to $1,500. We submit tftat^ this is sufficient salary for tbe umpire of negro quarrels, the Judge of hen roost robbers, watermelon stealers, etc. S. Reduce the number of Trial Justice, to one-fourth, or one-third, or one-half the present number. 9. Pay Trial Justices in the county 825 a year. Trial Justlcesat the Court House towns ?100 a years. 10. Pay constables tbe same as Trial Justices. Cotton Seed for ('own. We find the following paragraph in the Winntboro A>w* and Herald: "The Union l\messays: Beware of feeding cows with uncooked cotton seed. We learn that the Rev. C. T. Scaife lost three cows, and T. M. Gosset lost his only cow last week, all from feeding them upon uncooked cotton seed. There Is no danger if the seed are cooked." Now, we propose to testify on the question oi feeding raw cotton seed to cows. We claim to have had some experience in that i particular form of practical economy. If a handful or two of meal or wheat bran is mixed with raw cotton seed, the cows will learn to like the feed, and will thrive on it, and increase in mllk-glvlng. If care Is taken not to overfeed at tbe beginning with this feed no better food can be found for a cow. The idea | that boiled food is good for a cow, has been, we believe, long si nee an exploded idea and an abandoned practice. It is next to an impossibility to fatten a cow oil boiled food. Give the raw cotton seed mixed with a proper quantity of meal or bran, and all will be well with the animal. Nodoubt about that. Don't try the plan of keeping a cow on 6lops and half cooked food. Neither is it well to give a half-starved cow a whole bushel of cotton seed at the first feeding. It 6eems to us that the advocates of licensing the sale of whiskey in towns and cities have put themselves to much unnecessary trouble to cast odium on the acts and the character of the prohibitionists,and we would warn our poople. to take such flings as come from the dally newspapers with some degree of allowance. As a rule we believe that nine out of every ten of the city newspapers favor the sale of whiskey in their respective cities. No right thinking reader will be ready to believe that the prohibitionists have disgraced themselves !n making an eftort to stop drunkenness and the resultant sins. An impartial Judge, we think, would in a general way accord as good motives and as good principles to the prohibitionists as Is accorded to the liquor license advocates. Recently some of the throwers of mud at the temperance people have assailed the la. dies of Atlauta, and Governor Colquitt. The aci carried wiiu it iub u?? ousnvi. Tbe Colombia Register. The present management of the Columbia Register has been spoken of in our hearing In tbe most complimentary manner. Speaking for tbe Press and Banner, we regard it as a most excellent newspaper. It is wide-awake, honest, outspoken, and fearless in the advocacy of any cause which it deems right. Another matter: the Register furnishes proof positive that an editor may be perfectly independent In tbe utterance of bis views, and at the same time be entirely respectful and courteous to those whose views he combats. Wfl are glad to see this In the Register, and we hope its civility may to some extent be cop- ( led by those editors who seemingly believe that personal vllllflcatlon of a brother editor j is either argument or independence. When you go to church, lay your quid of tobac?o on tbe door step 'till the services are over. You can get it again. The church has Just been scoured and cleaned, and put in apple-pie order.?Exchange. In a few weeks the Methodists of this village will have their beautiful new church finished, and we hope that those in authority may authorize and direct the sexton to lead any man out of tbe doors who presumes to spit tobacco over the new floors of the house ^ wuicn nas Deen aeuicuieu iui umiic iwimnp. : It is 111 manners to spit in public, and it is a desecration of the temple to bespatter its floors and its benches with tobacco. Short Terra Schools. The School Commissioner of Richland County admlU that some of the schools in that County are kept open only "two or three months" In the year. When it is recollected that the School Commissioner of Abbeville County keeps our public schools open from six to eight months, we have reason to be thankful for a faithful and practical administration of the public fund. If the School Commissioner of Richland would consult Capt. E. Cowan, School Commissioner, Abbeville S. C. he would learn how to keep his own schools open for double the time which he now keeps the schools open, without taxing the people another cent. Never before has my sales In ladles hats been larger. I sell nothing but the very best goods, and will sell them cheaper than you can get them In any large city. Win. E. Bel!.
