Iaho*pitnblp Treatment.
We would not be disagreeable or unparliamentary
in our remarks, hut on last Saturday
evening the Atlanta Journal, under tbe heading
of "Carolina Hosts Go," that newspaper,
according to our way of thinking, violates all
the rules of hospitality and kindly feeling
Heretofore that paper has been so clean, and
so far removed trom doing an improper thing ,
that we were surprised at its treatment ol
Senator Tillman and Governor Evans. As a ,
specimen remark, we quote tbe following,
which, if not vulgar, approaches dangerously
near to an improper speech : ?
"Senator Tillman and Lieutenant Governor c
Evans left yesterday morning at half-past (
eight o'clock. They went over tbe Southern
train at tbat hour, which left in two or three s
sections. It bas been rumored, but few be- 8
lieved it, that both of these gentlemen were
indignant that green Hags were hung out on u
the last coach, to indicate a section behind, i
They wanted red flags to wave their departure
out of the city. Some were cruel enough to
suggest that a part of their shirts might have f
been used; for at the auditorium Thursday ?
they were covered with the blood of a war ,
thirty years gone."
t.' >
It may be that Senator Tillman and Gov. j
ernor Evans were impolitic?and we admit
that they were?In their speeches, but we sub. f
mlt that in nothing that we have read have t
we seen so great a departure from the proprieties
of the occasion as was contained c
in tbe paragraph above quoted from* tbe t
Atlanta Journal. 0
The facts are, that Governor Evans and
Senator Tillman were the guests of tbe city, a
They were representatives of the people of a 8
sister State, who by overwhelming odds, j
elected these gentlemen to their respective v
places. V
It is also trne that the Atlanta Journal, if t
representing the people of Atlanta, was the
host or the occasion.
It is also true that hosts as well as guests
should observe the proprieties.
In ability and private character the r
maligned Carolinians would doubtless have a
nothing to lose in comparison neither with t
the stall of the Atlanta Journal nor their c
traducers at home. We believe that Till* j
man and Evans have said nothing in their f
public career which is so inappropriate or so far t
removed from the faots, as the statements by c
the Journal in reference to tbe flags of the t
) train. {
Not satisfied with Its own unjast, and evi. c
dently unkind remarks, tbe Journal copies
an anonymous communication in reference to
Evans and Tillman. Tbat communication
according to our way of thinking, should not'
have been published in any newspaper, es. r
pedally as it bad no name signed to it. t
Canatnv Homfilnn In rinnlnnnl.l In 1S60
? c
made a speech which, we think, was just as j
objectionable as those of Tillman and Evans f
in Atlanta last week, but we heard very little ^
?5 { {' criticism of it. t"
General Gordon, not so many years ago, v
made bis famous "Black Jack" speech at
' Greenwood in which he gave offense to a
large majority of his hearers, but our newspapers
did not manufacture or copy reports,
wblch "few believed," in order to place him
In a wrong light before tbe people, either of s
f .i'*' Georgia or of South Carolina. *
Tbe Journal may have thought to please
certain Carolinians by its attempt to ridicule
or misrepresentTlllman and Evans, and there
is no donbt whatever that there are some peo.
pie here who will enjoy anything that may
be said agaiust Tillman, but there is a sense Of
fairness existing in tbe hearts of at least a
portion of their political opponents. 1
Governor Evans is President of the State
;i'-j Convention. Senator Tillman was lately
elected Senator almost without the show of
opposition. We believe that it is true, that no
' man in that Convention bas made one-tenth ^
tbe impress on tbe constitution as was made I
by Tillman, and yet when be goes abroad tbe
Atlanta Journal publishes the notice above In c
reference to him when he departs from the r
city. J
If it be boasted that Tillman is losing bia j
hold on public favor, history would be only r
repeating itself. In 1876, excepting possibly *
one thousand, Hampton had the cordial sup- j
port of every white man In the State. And r
yet Irby beat him for Senator in 1S90. [
Tillman has never nad the support of more j
than sixty-five to eighty per cent, of the peo- v
,:H' Ple- j
Ali the liquor element may be said to be v
solid against him. All the former or l
i old line orthodox office-hoiders are ?
against bim. All that portion of our people
who think they should govern the State
by divine right, and bold office forever, are
against him; and then, the little boot-lickB of
all tboseclaBses are against blm.
Of course the old office-holders and the sa.
loon element will never forgive Tillman for ^
taking office and then closing tbe bar-rooms.
In closing the bar-rooms be did more for the ,
sobriety of this people than every j
man wbo has held office since tbe i
war. Does anvhodv doubt that if Till- *
man's enemies conld get In power tbe bar t
rooms would be open again in SoutbCarollna ? t
and the gilded palaces for tbe unwary, aB well I
as the dark alleys for the ensnarement of the
weak, would illure victims and open pitfalls
to destruction. We believe that three-fourths
of tbe opponents of Tillman would re-open
the b&rs, and we believe that much of the opposition
to Tillman is based on tbe hope that
we may again have free liquor in South Carolina
to debauch and ruin ber people.
Ever since Tillman appoared on the scene
we have beard a great deal about "the best
element" not supporting him. Who are "tbe
best element T" Is it the bar-room crowd, or
is it the great mass of tbe people who propose
to shut up the saloons? Each man can answer
for himself, and choose his own com- d
[ r pany.
We do not admit that it is within the power 1
of Tillman to disgrace South Carolina, even if
be were so inclined. We can only be disgraced
by our own acts, or by the approval of a
disgraceful acts by otbers. South Carolina repudiates
Tillman's ill-manners. Nobody en. e
dorses that. We are all sorry that be made t
tbe mistake, but we do not think his action *
excuses the action of others which is equally
reprehensible.

^-v^. which the gentlemen representing the dally
press did during the session of the Constitutional
Convention, and, without attempting
to apportion the praise which should go to
each, the Press and Banner would add its testimonial
as to the efficiency, fairness and foil- 1
ness of the reports. Reporters never did
fairer or better work under any circumstances.
As far as we have noticed tbe reports
were absolutely free from the objections
to which former reports were subject. Whatever
the facts may be, we have never before d
seen reports which we thought were alike
fair to low-country and up-country. We have f
fhnnoht ronnrters In the Dast Understood
tbeir business to be to boost friends and lowcountry
representatives to the detriment of
up-country representatives, no matter bow
meritorious the latter mlgbt be. It seemed
iu former years an Impossibility for Charleston
not to receive more tban ber share of
prominence while up-country people were ^
more or less ignored, sneered at. or put In
tbe back ground.

"Implied Contract."
A number of wipe owls talk flippantly
bout "Implied cod tract" on the part of the
uembers of the Constitutional Convention
o take S2aday for their services, and many
iromoters of the Convention scheme are tryDg
to give this construction to the act of the
.eglslature which attempted to fix the pay of
aembers at 82 while their own was ?4. The
Convention advocates said In the campaign
bat the cost would be only $50,000, and said,
ire believe, that the Convention would sit for
hree weeks, when the session has been about
hree months. We suspect that it is fear of
iccountability to the people for the excess of
30,000 that the dissenting members are klckng
about. If the Convention had adjourned
n three weeks they might have voted tbemelves
810 a day and still kept their contract
vlth the people to let the Convention cost on
aa/j cia-.?a-rnnit??n mo holipvo ofjirf
y CM,VIA), OUli il LU1 llliuiau, * V ~
d the Idea that 550,000 would pay the expense,
.'he Legislature was presumptuous In trying
0 flx the pay of members or the Convention.
?here was not a member of the Legislature
hat didn't have sense enough tokuow that
he proposition was presumptuous and that
hey had no right to flx the pay of members
if the Convention. It was, to say the least,
consistent to take Si a day for their own
ervices and undertake to say that the pay of
1 delegate to the State Convention should be
mly balf ot the pay which they were receiv*
ng.
As a matter ol fact all this fuss about the
iay of members is beneath contempt. As a
natter of fact, no man is fit to sit in a Conrention
or Legislative body whose services
ire' not worth S5 a day. We want no "Cheap
fohn" representatives from Abbeville.
It is not tbe paltry pay of members that afect
the people, but It is tbe heavy appropriates
for schools that hurt us.
Owing to the cheap capital that may be
nade against the members it may have been
tetter not to give the mob an opportunity to
omplain, but the raise to Si a day was right.
There was no more contract to work for *2
i day than there was that the Convention
onot Anltr fWYl Mr Tollman vp hp.
leve, made that pledge. Now, let us see If be
fill be called to account for the excess.
Vitbout his efforts and pledges the Convenlon
would never have been held.
Injuring Abbeville.
We have heard It said that the Atlanta Exosltlon
is to some extent injuring the trade
,nd business of Abbeville. The money that
s spent in going to the Exposition would
therwise be spent in paying debts or in buyng
goods at Abbeville. And then when peo>le
go to a city tbey sometime make the
nistake of buying there the things which
lould be better bought at home. When we
lave to bny anything while out of town we
eel as If we bad wasted that much. And we
lon't trade wben we go away.
Bad Advice.
The Saluda Sentinel advises the people to
esist tbe payment of Interest on the railroad
tonds, which were issued by Ninety-Six and
>tber townships. The highest court in the
:iDd has declared that the interest must be
aid. It seems to this newspaper that the
Southern people tried to resist the power or
be United Stales about thirty-five years ago
rith very unsatisfactory results.
Good Speech.
We want you to read General Manderson's
peech at Chlckamauga. We have had it In
ype for a long time, but have not bad room
or it until now. It will well repay for readCAKVING
AND CUTTING.
lot Mappers the Bane of This Conntry?Negroes
Fight and White Peopie
Spend All Their Money at
Them.
Hot suppers have broken out again in town
nd country, with all the virulence possible,
'bey are now of almost weekly occurrence
a tbe different neighborhoods, and hundreds
if people meet together at night to eat and
I rink.
The white people generally spend all their
noney on these occasions, and the ncgros do
be same as a rule, but tbey occasionally do
ore?they cut and shoot, each other. Only
ast week at Verderv on Mr. R. H. Devlin's
nace itie negroes naa one 01 mese carouRms
rhen John Foster cut Sam White in many
laces, though it is believed he will not die.
is soon as tne cutting was done the wounded
legro went ofl for repairs, when Dr. Drennan
endered such help as was possible. After
lltcblng the gaping wounds and upholsterok
the negro generally be was left to luck,
rhlch will probably favor him.
The deliberate opinion of the Press and
tanner is that hot suppers by negroes or
whites arc a nuisance and good people ought
o join In an effort to suppress them. One enourages
gluttony and the other promotes
bloodshed and fusses.

Personal Paragraphs Pertaining to
the People Who Come and Go.
Troy, S. C., Dec. 3, 1895.
Fire ! Are ! lire!
Our town was awakened last Thursday
nlgbtat 12 o'clock with the cries of fire. The J
whole town responded to the call as Troy is
ever ready to do her part. It was soon Been
where help was needed. The Are began In tne
drug store. When the door was opened It was
Impossible to go in, so everything in it was a l
total loss. The next thing was logo to J. S. J
Harris, and by faithful work a goodly part of
Mr. Harris' goods was saved. It is thought
that there was about $1,500 or $2,000 worth of
goods that was consumed in the flames. We
understand that Mr. Harris was insured for .
about SI,200. This we think will cover about ,
two-thirds of his losses that was burned besides
his losses in breaking up of the goods. i
We have not beard the amount of loss In tbe ;
drug store, but we think SS00 or 81,000 will ?
cover the losses. No Insurance.
Tbe origin is thought to be accidental as all 5
of the doors and windows were fastened. Tbe '
talk of the town the balance of the night was ?
a fire company. This is too much for a small r
a town as Troy to have, but we can have a
watching company at a great deal less coat, f
and we and all other towns should have night ?
watchmen. i
