Fault- Finding1 ? Besmirching tbe 1
Good Annie of tbe Ntate.
Id aDotber part of this issua of tbe Press
and Banner appears ono of those daily as- (
aniii's nnon the tjeoDle and tbe good name of
the State of South Carolina. This piece J
comes from Columbia through the News and t
Courier. t
"The whole head is sick, the whole heart is J
faint" with eo much grumbling and so much t
fault-flnding, *
Even admitting that we were badly governed.and
acknowledging the fact that the old t
set are all out of office, and that the horrible
dispensary law interferes with our whiskey ?
guzzling, is there any sense or reason in forever
holding up our grievances to the public *
and making eflorts to ruin the character and t
good name of South Carolina? Didn't we i
long since learn that It was bad policy to 1
wash our linen In public ? t
Every Carolinian loves South Carolina and 1
is proud of her record in all that goes to shed 1
lustre on the fame and glory of a people who i
are as proud and aschlvalrous as any that ever
lived. ?
Then why this eternal and everlasting
, fault-finding and sneering at Hie majority of c
the people? . *
Why the never-ceasing lament that s
we and our family, our set, or our coterie of i
the Lord's annointed, are out of office? Why 1
this constant talk, by reading through the s
lines, we may see that the "outs" consider t
themselves so much more respectable than J
the "ins?" t
"Lord bless me and my wife,
My son John and bis wife, '
Us four and no more?amen." J
Is It done with any inrane Idea that such 1
conduct and such disrespect for the majority t<
of the people will induce them to acknowledge
their own inability to hold office and to
draw salaries, and that they will forsooth vacate
and humbly ask the old set to take their 1
old places ? j
Law. (
II there is anything la the law with which
you are not familiar, this Issue of tbe Press
and Banner will be of more tban usual interest
to you. Several very able arguments ap- 1
pear this week, and we know tbat tbe argu- ;
ment on "suretyship" will be interesting and
Instructive. The argument for a new trial for
Mcintosh is well worth tbe reading, so are all \
the other arguments.
We wore busy printing arguments lost
week for the Supreme Court, and when the
work was finished, we found that we had in
tact the several arguments which we present 1
this week, and knowing that nothlug would r
be more appreciated by our readers we print
a lot of them. If we bad not distributed other
arguments we could furnish more of the
same sort.
Persons who want to go security for political
adventurers In buying type and printing 1
offices, will And the history of the Greenville

Absent Congressmen. I
Some of our brethren of tbe press bave noted
tbe fact that some of the Reform Congress f
men are absent from their scats in congress, c
and seem disposed to complain at the derelic- j;
tion. Speaking for the Press and HaDner, c
vre don't care a continental whether any of t
them ever go to Washington. If It suits them J
better, or is more convenient, to slay at home t
on their farms, or to practice law, or to go a 1
fishing, its all the same to us. We ilou't care. [
Some of the Anti papers are getting to be ex- t
acting. It would require more than the com- <
blned wisdom of our Congressmen to solve \
the tariff bill and the financial issues, to say t
nothing lof tbe trouble that is brewing between
Queen Lll and her little leland out |
In the sea. (
Itseems like a Joke for. any single Congress- e
men to pretend to understand any one or all (
these questions, and when an ;Antl newspa- i
t>er urees an Alliance Congressman is to be *
In his seat to settle ibem we are confused in
our mind. ?
The County Government.
We present this week the "County Government
Read it, learn its provisions, and lay it
aside for future reference. It is the most important
document that we could print.
The Press and Banner ;has been unusually
busy of late, and a full force of bands have
been faithful in every emergency. Resides
printing tbe Press and Banner and two other
papers, we printed last week a little over one
hundred pages of briefs, and nearly fifty dollars
worth of other Job work. Tbe good work
which we do, the fair prices which we charge,
together with the promptness with which the
demands of customers are supplied, has had
tbe result of bringing iu much work, for
which we are.'grateful to a generous public.
Abbeville's Sons Never Forgret the
Land ol Tbelr Birth.
Mr. A. D. Calhoun, of Shreveport, La., In a
private letter to us, among other things, says:
"I have travelled from the Atlantic to the
Pacific, from the Pacific to tbe great Lakes,
nnd from tbe Lakes to the Gulf, and have yet
to find a town I like as well as old Abbeville." 1
Abbeville always has a responsive chord for
those of her sons who love her so well. Mr.
Calhoun lelt us too soon. If he bad waited
until the completion of the ti., C. & N. road,
and the consequent growth of tbetown.be
would have remained with us forever. Good s
luck to him and his In his new home. ?
Rev. II. T. Sloan, D. !>., Paralyzed.
We learn that that venerable minister of
the gospel, Rev. H. T. Sloan. D. !>., of this
county, was paralyzed a few days ago, and
now lies at his home at Cedar Springs, in a
critical condition.
? Dr. Sloan has been pastor ol Long CaDe and
Cedar Springs congregation for fifty years,
and during all that time was greatly beloved.
He lias lived a long and useful life, and bis af- '
flictlou brings sorrow to many friends.

The question now agitating the minds of 1
Abbevllie's best and most energetic business
men Is, shall we have a cotton factory in Abbeville.
Judging from the expression of our I
business meu and well lo-do farmers, who say ]
they are now willing and ready to subscribe ,
for a liberal share In the enterprise, which 1
they feel will be of great advantage to our
people at large and do more towards building
up our growing town than any and all other i
Industries uow In our midst. Look at the
growth and prospeilty of the counties in the 1
upper pari of our State and say if cotton fac- 1
torles have not been the great factors In their
upbuilding? No wis the opportune time,
while (he subject Is being agitated, and our
people are ready. Will the people of Abbevllle
let this opportunity slip? We think not, 1
and believe by your next Issue we will hear
sometblhg more encouraging about a cotton
factory to be established In Abbeville. Let
our inonied and business men lake holdaud j
others will become Interested and the result 1
will be one that will set in motion many Idle

Dignified Reply to nn Irritating A
tack from Senator Irby.
News and Courier.
1'nriTunii St -Tantmrv 14.
Senator Irby tn a curd published to day hi
seen fit to accuse me of being responsible I
a very large degree for his political trials an
troubles. He does me too much honor whe
he Rays that I have "hounded, persecute
misrepresented and manufactured senl
ment" against him. Let me say that I a
simply a newspaper correspondent, not a pc
iticfan. As a young man, hoping lor succe
in my work, I realize that my first duty is1
give facts as they are found. If In doing th
.Senator Irby has not been pleased it canm
be helped.
I have no affiliation with, or interest, in tl
Senator, or In his political friends nor an
desire to be dragged into the squabble b
tween himself and his former political su;
porters and allies. It Is no fault of mine tbi
h is conduct has not pleased the masses of tl
Reformers; I am not responsible that tie h(
a "lot of enemies." or that be could Id
minute make n censns of bis political frlem
in the "State House." It was not at my cji
that "the clique of the Reform movemei
met at Columbia to name a candidate," et
I would, however, had been to blame had tl
news not been published as it came, and eve
then much that was said bas been reserved.
If Senator Irby has found objection to na
correspondence iu The News and Courie
which has every indication of being trna
worthy and legitimate news, it will occaslc
slon me no grief. My only purpose is to a
