Being on tbe sick list and ordered not to

to "root" around and hunt up out-of-date
matter and things, some of which I find quite
I owe much 10 my gemai ineuu, vuiuuei
J. T. Austin, of Greenville, S. C., wbo holds a
position In the office of Secretary of State.
Mr. Austin has been arranging and Indexing
the old reoords found in a room In the third
tory of the Capitol. I have read many old
papers o -gone days with great pleasure,
and I has ild up much useful Information
for future u^e. Colonel Austin has called my
attention to several papers relating to Abbe,
Tille County, among them being the present
meat of the grand Jury for Abbeville District
at the October, 1812, term of the Court ol
General Sessions.
At the suggestion of the grand Jury, the
presentment was referred to the General As-'
sembly through the senator and senior member
of tbe House of Representatives, as is
ohown by tbe order on the back of it, signed
by Jaa. Wardlaw. C- C. G. S. I give the pre
aentment in full, as follows:
"South Carolina?Abbeville District,
"October Term, 1812."
"We. tbe graod Jurors of said District doj
present as a grievance tbe present mode ol
Bupporting tbe poor throughout tbe District
and State, and recommend tbat poor houses
> be made throughout the State, and In particular
In this District.
"2nd. And wo present as a grievance tbat
tbe Journals of the Legislature are not published
so as to give more general information
to tbe oltlzend.
"3rd. And we preienv as a grievance that
tbe price ol iloenses for retailing spirits Is too
high, and tbat no one body of men Is bound
to give Information specially, and tbat tbe
fine for retailing without lloeose Is too btgb.
"4th. We present as a grievance tbat the
flue against prorane swearing 1b not sufflclen tly
htgn ; and, also, tbat Sabbath-breaking is
not sufficiently guarded against.
"5tb. We also present as a grievance tbat
conctables are no', held to security.
"We request his Honor the Judge, to cause
these oar presentments to be published In
the State Gareite, and cause tbe same to be
laid before the Legislature at their nexi
- meeting.

By Indorsements It appears that each of the
above recommendations were referred to tbt
proper oommlttees of tbe Legislature, but
With wbat re.'.ult 1m not known. Botb tbe
style and tbe subject matter pounds queer to
tbe people of tb!s day. Tbe grand Jurj
wanted tbe license on liquor reduced as well
as the fines for retailing wltbout license. Al
tbe tame time It wanted more Btrlngent laws
on profane swearing, and complained thai
tbe breaking of tbe Sabbath was not buIII
olently guarded against.

report or tbe evldenc aken by tbe committee
of Investigation C tbe Third Congressional

lar Session 1868-1869. bat makes very Inter
estlng reading, too, &w)d it sounds queer and
as It It belonged to some age long since past,
instead of Just a few years back. Tbat wonderful
report is signed by Joseph Crews,
Chairman. It treats of tbe Intimidation oi
tbe negroes at elections, their treatment generally
by tbe whites, tbe Ku-Klux Klan, thr
killing of Randolph at Hodges, tbe murder
of "Sneak" Martin, and many other like
matters. It tries to lay tbe blame of all mur
dersat that time on D. Wyatt Aiken. Jarae*
8. Cothran and tbe K-K K. I will copy Just
one paragraph In full, that In tbe face of tbe
facts then existing Is tbe most remarkable
t utterance ever written. Here It Is:
"The oolored people are the most govern
able people In tbe*world?less roguery and
stealing than there was under the old system."
In rambling through Elm wood Cemetery
here, I notloed a foot-atone with the follow
log Inscription:
" Removed Irom Potter's Field to this plac?
M by the students of South Carolina College,
** February, 1860."
That naturally excited my curiosity, and 1
examined the headstone, when, to my sur,
prise I found that the prave was tnat of an
Abbeville boy. I will let the Inscription
peak for Itself. It Is as follows:
" Here Ilea the body of Jean Louis FInle.v.

Abbeville, S. C., May 9,1903.
Editor Press and Banner:
K7>r the nast ten davs Prof. Locke, of Hart
well, Ga., a well-known and excellent muslclac,
Usui been teaching a music school lu the
ball over Barnet's alore.
A, more successful school has never existed.
Those who attended were bigbly pleased
with the result*, and realize ibat a more
klllful oompetent and courieouR Instructor
could not be found anywhere. Prof. Locke
has made sooree of trlends In this town, who
wish him all the suoceus and enjoyment that
can crown the life of ao worthy a Christian
Last night the ball was crowded with friends
and visitors, who came out to witness the
Closing exercises. There were a number of
L. recitations by the children, all of wblcb were
splendidly rendered. Eacb recitation wab
followed by a song. The organ was played b>
Miss Annie Boles, of Lowndes vine, who has
been a regular scholar and has also assisted
Prol. Locke In the nse of the organ throughout
the entire term.
A aolo, "In the Shadow of Thy Wing," was
sang by Miss Del ma Boles. A solo, "Tbe
Railway Message," was sung by Mrs. Mamie
Two songs, "Old Joe," and "Who Built de
Ark," were snug by Prof. Locke and others
and were exceedingly comical.
Mr. J. C. Thomas, of Beverly, Ga., gave an
Interesting talk; so did Messrs. Barnet,
Henderson ana uiii.
After the above-named speeches came a
song. "Have Courage, My Boy, to Say No,"
beautifully sung by Prof. Loose, which held
tbe andleoce pell-booDd.
Next came Prof. Locke's farewell address,
and the httherio gay assembly became sad as
they listened to tbe voice of tbe eloquent
speaker and realized that that tbe hour of
parting was at hand. Tears were shed by
members of bis class; It seemed tbat they
oooid not give up their noble leader, after
having become so greatly attached to him.
But all things must end?even life Itself will
Following this address came a song, "The
Parting Hand," admirably suited to tbe occasion.
Tb6 school bas been a season of sweetness
and benefit to all those who have attended,
and we hope tbat tbe days will not glide into
months, until our Professor will come again.

Editor Press and Manner :
People are becoming alarmed at tbe violence
and frequency of the hail and wind
' storms which visit our Southern country.
The long drouths in Summer so hard on
crowing crops, are also cause of uneasiness. _
Those who have read and thought on the Jsubject
know that all are caused by the ter-,u'?
/tfloimMinn ftf niir fnr*?nt. t.reen. If OUT I
lawmakers have the good of their country
at heart they will stop this destruction and
require the reforesting of all waste places.
There are other sources from which oil mills
and cotton mills should draw their running |
power and they should be required to use
thee sources and quit using so much wood.
It would cost something of course, probably
large amounts of money, but it would be for
the flual good of our people at large.
There Is no sense nor statesmanship In
waiting till great trouble comes when It can
be foreseen and the cause removed.
"Ino" is a crank on the suplect of tree
planting hut we have the satisfaction of
knowing that we have plenty of good company.
A few years from now when the wind can
sweep the country from mountain to sea
with no forests to retard its progress the "
storms will be more severe and the drouths
of longer duration resulting In disaster to
our people and tbeir means of subsistence. O
We are like Editor Wilson in thinking that
our legislators should think more about the
needs of our country and less about monuments
to the dead who have already bnilt
monuments in the hearts of our people and
who themselves, II alive would spend the
money for the good of the living.
Trthfi twentv thousand dollars appropriate
ed by the Legislature for Hampton's monument
bad been spent tn reforesting unproductive
land in this State would have done a
wonderful amount of good to all our people.
Will you Editors, who reaoh so many people
and who bave such wide Influence use
ibat influence to attract attention to this subject?
I feel sure that you will and if so
tbese thoughts will not be waated 1n the
writing. "Ino." an

The Treasury Department has refused to
pass the personal accountH of Dr. Crum as Tt
colleotor of this port and he will not be permitted
to uraw any pay lrom the government
unless and until hie nomination by the
President Is oouflrmed by the Senate. So w,
the colored favorite of the President may '
serve his government and wear an officia' SO
title, but for nearly a year, at least, he may th
draw nothing from Its coffers In remunera- r?
Hon for his services. The door of hope Is
open, but the caBh draper Is closed.
The Treasury Department takes Its stand I{,j
on section 1,761, of the revised statutes, as
No money shall be paid from the treasury, b,
as sa'ary, to auy persons appointed during ad
the recess of the Senate to All a vacancy in

while the Senate was session, and as by ?

appointment has been confirmed by the

This seems to applj? to Crura exactly and "t
yet It seems to be an unusual and H may be nt
an unprecedented application of iho statute.
Certainly the law has not been of general fc
