Have We Reform T The Tillman faction has made many promises of reform, but we believe none has been effected in the way of enforcing the law against murderers. It seems that the Governor often saves the necks of the few whom the Courts cannot clear. A man hired a negro to kill bis father. The Governor thought him a suitable person lor executive clemency. Some two or three other gentlemen have by some mischance been con* victed of murder and the Courts have failed to find reason to set aside the verdicts. Will tbe Governor com mute the sentence of a wifemurderer? It is to be seen. He will nodoubt be asked to excuse Turner of Spartanburg from tbe Inconvenience of being hanged. Will he give commutation for the offence of killing bis brother-in-law? We will see. We have no opinion as to tbe Wade Haines business. He 1b a negro and was convicted on oiroamatantlal evidence. When a white man goes soot free on positive testimony, it might look a little bard to bang a negro on clrcum alantlal evideuce. But we need a little wholesome enforcement of tbe law against white men?a thing which has not been done to any extent since 18Tb. A negro more olten gets justice, though be often gels clear, when be ought to be hanged. Easter. Last Sunday was Easter. The day was a perfect Spring day, and in loveliness was alj that tbe dharmlng season could vouchsafe. Religious and devout people had made great preparations for tbe celebration of tbe greatest of tbe religious festivals, and in all our churches divine worship was bad. Tbe Methodist and Episcopal churches had been most elaborately decorated with flowers and evergreens, and on the walls of each were placed impressive legends commemorative of tbe event which is regarded with so much sacrednees In all lands where tbe name of our blessed Saviour Is known. The Presbyterian church was not ornament' ed with the floral decorations, but this con' gregatton set apart the day lor tbe celebration of the most comfortable sacrament of tlie Last Supper, and in this way showed their love and devotion to tbe Saviour of mankind. Tb* Associate Reformed Presbyterians and tbe Baptists also held religious services. Tbe colored churches were not behind their white brethren in paying tribute to the risen laord. Tbe Methodist church especially was made as beautiful as possible, and tbe service in tbe cburcheB were fully up to their Btand' ards of attractiveness. ?? Connfy Correspondence Invited. In announcing the birth of a child, corres. pondents are requested to follow the form which has been used by tbe Press and Banner for years. Tbe birth of a man is no more tbe subject of a Joke than bis death. Don't put riddles in your pieces, and don't fail to give your real name. Use short words, and not long ones. "Bought" is better than "par. chased," and "gift" Is better than "donation." Don't say "we regret," "we are glad," and words of that sort. The public care nothing at all about a correspondent's grief or Joy. We solicit newsy letters from all sections of the county. Kvery community should be reported in the Press and Banner. Open space ftoralffl nnnntv onrrPunnnHAn^o No Time for Levity. Somebody has told a lie on Congressman Latimer Id Washington. He Is charged with being a Third Partylte. The Register thinks Jj this Is no time for levity. We suggest to correct the misrepresentation that Latimer get a certified copy of his published letter in which he protested his alle glance to tbe Democratic party as long as it didn't conflict with tbe Ocala demands. A copy of bis famous resolutions would help him, too. Tbla thing ol weakening tbe Influence of oar Congressman ought to be stopped. Tbe antls will have enough sins to answer for wltbout bothering Latimer. Abbeville'* Progress. The work of building in Abbeville Btlll goes i bravely on. Every day muleB, scrapers and bands move mncb dirt in levelling the ground for tbe railroad shops. Tbe Messrs. Allen are still building, though tbey bave tbe engine and several machines in plaoe, and running. The Messrs. Beard, at tbe Tngaloo Iron Works, are making great progress In forward- : ing their sbops. Private residences seem to be going up on every bill, and tbe oarpentero are busy everywhere. A Needed Officer. Tbe Legislature at its next sitting ougnt tc create tbe office of Superintendent of Strikers. We already have railroad commissioners, and many otlrer commissioners, and now we want Superintendent of Strikers. The trade at Abbeville has been very good i tbls season, notwithstanding tbe greatly reduced sales of corn and bacun. PHOENIX NEWS. Pleasant Words for the Press and Banuer?Schools?Teachers, Etc.

Tbe weather has been delightful, and tbe Industrious farmers are making good use of their time by planting corn and doing other farm work. Some of our early gardeners had their young vegetation hurt by tbe recent cold weather.

No Likelihood of a Change Until February, 1890, When the Incumbent'* Time Expires. The postmaster at Abbeville, it Is pre nuuied, under Cleveland's reported declaration of intention to lot Harrison's appointees serve out their time, will bold until February, 1885?nearly two years yet. The office was made a Presidential office about two years ago, and biB commission dates lrom tbat tiina He served from July, 1889, to February, 1881, under the iormer appointment, before it was raised to a Presidential office. It 1b quite probable that Mr.Tolbert and Mr. McMillan will run tbe office for two years yet to come. ?: ? Fish books and lines for sale by G. W. Lomaz. Octagon soap, best for all uses for sale by O.

The attenc ance was small?very few persons havio come from the country. No official sale were made. Tbe trade lu the stores was norr Inal.and the business at the printing office and the banks was oDly fairly good. The beautiful Spring-like weather has pu tbe farmers to work with great energy in pr< paring for the planting of tbe crops. Ther need be no doubt about tbe area to be pnt I cotton. Since tbe Alliance has ceased to tak control, each and every man seems dispose to strike out for himself, and, with lavorabl seasons, tbere will be no shortage of the su pie next Fall. Tbe planters, as a rule, are well equlppe for their work. Many of them have corn ii the crib, and not a lew have bacon on hanc **?

The grass is beginning to grow In the pai tares, and there Is considerable enquiry fo milk cows. With a good pasture and a re* sonable number of milk cows, a man is no badiy off. even if meat should be a lltll scarce. Milk and butter being the finest c luxuries, and the best of the liie-glving loodi the man who has these Is well off The experience of tbe past has directed tb attention of our people to tbe production o their own supplies, and in nothing has mor been done than In tbe extension of tbelr pas ture lands and tbe Increased numbers of tnel cattle, which, without charge, readil, gather the grass and turn it into flesh am milk.

He reports the delay In Mr. winder' return to be attributable to tbe fact that h has not received tbe papers from beadquai tero, which must be signed with tbe omcla seal of the company. He says Mr. Winde will come as soon as he receives tbe pjipert but gives It as bis opinion that the titles wll not be accepted with tbe condition as to tbi right of tbe grantor to tap the tank with ai inch pipe. He further gives lias his oplnloi that the tank will not be placed at sufflcien elevation to be available tor tbe purposes fo which it is desired Tbe matter has been staudlng open ho Ion) that, speaking for tbe Press and Banner, w hope that It may soon be definitely settled li some way.

Several of our dudes have al> ready donned their strawR. Last Sunday was a beautiful day, and services were held In all our churches. The e MethodIhI church was decorated for Easter In - h simple, yet artistic manner. Just above the e front door on the Inside was the motto In 11 vf Inn green "Praise the Lord." On the right side extending along the entire Bide of the i, building was written in letters of gold, "Jesus a the victor lives to-day." On the opposite and - left side was the beauttlul motto, "Love's rey deeming work is done." In the recess behind the pulpit In letters of gold were the truest and most sublime words that ever fell upon mortal ears, "Christ Is risen." Just bentath this graud "Easter" motto stood a pure white . cross, around the base of which were mounds '* of beautiful flowers, pure white calla lilies, geraniums and vines of lvery creeping here and there, beautiful flowers, sweet emblems '* ol the life beyond the grave through the resurrection. Hovering above the cross were a number of pure white doves winding smllax around the cross so natural In their life like poise that they seemed just ready to alight. The chancel was draped In pure white, white 1 on the eight and left, aad high above the pulpit were festoons of cedar most gracefully * looped to either side rnd fastened wltth mag DOlla leaves in ciusier, ana uney vines iruu' ine down ihe walls, with the mottoes in gilt, "He is the Kin* of elory," "I know that my e Redeemer livelh," "Sing unto the Lord and praise his name," "1 am alive forevermore." r* The opening anthem "Tell it out with a Joyful noise" and offertory "Christ is risen," were rendered by the choir in the most 11 charming manner, while the sort, sweet tones of ihe cornet, played by Mr.Sam Trowbridge, r_ of Anderson, add* d greatly to the melody of the organ as played by Miss Aylet Chalmers. 14 The text whs taken from St. John Gospel, 20th chapter and 2Sth verso, "And Tbumas * answered and said unto blm my Lord and my God." The sermon as understood by us was d 1st, An argument agaiust the resurrection outside of the bible. 2ud. Proofs adduced from the records given in the sacred writings t by the Evangelism,one,and the strongest of which was the testimony given by Tnomas In the words of the text. 3rd. That we should dedicate our lives anew to the Risen Christ as it is through his resurrection alone that we have the blessed hope of a glorious immortality beyond the grave. The congregation was large and very attentive. many from the surrounding country worshipping with us. At the close of the morning service tbe sacrament of the Lord's Supper was administered, during which the choir sang In low sweet tones mat most beautiful hymn, "Jesus lover of my soul." We o trust the words so earnestly and beautifully spoken on that lovely Easter morning may bring forth abundant fruit to the honor and glory of him who was slain and rose again and now "lives to die no more." Mr. Tom Tuggart, one of Abbeville's young men, but now running on the Southern Pacidc railroad of Uanatonia, Texas, arrived in the city last Monday.

The four items following are from the Advocate of Pcace: The Austrian Peace Society held its first annual meeting recently. Ad> dresses were made by the Baroness von Suttner, Prince Wrede, Baron Pirquet ' and others, and were listened to by an * enthusiastic audience, among which r were members of the University Peace . Uuiou. The American Colonization Society, i whose seventy-sixth annual report lias I just been published, has tifty emigrants to Liberia during the past year. The Society sent out its first party of colonists in 1821, and every year since has emigrants, the total number up to the " present being 22,235 who have been as' sisted in finaing homes in Liberia. As might have been expected, the J new peace movement in Germany is i having to run gauutlet of ridicule. . This will only tend, however, to bring to the surface the strong undercurrent of dislike for the burdensome system e of militarism. The Baroness von Sutt, ner's work is too well founded to be j laughed out of existence by parodies on iier book, "Die Waffen Neider," or on the journal with the same name which she has established in Berlin. The English Peace societies are cone fining their petition work to the one practical matter of trying to induce the II English Government to accept the 'f proposition of the United States to esI) tablish a permanent treaty of arbitration between the two nations.
