Mr If tbe call Is made for tbe purpose oi re- J organizing In order to restore peace and barmooy in the Union, we mast not forget tbe Jgr fact tbat we met In Qreenwood only five Jf months ago f>r tbat snme purpose, and If we MF tailed to satisfy ournelves al the July meeting Jm what assurance have we thai the December ffl meeting will give better satisfaction to all W tbe membership tbau the Julv electiou did at that time? Tbe majority vote carried In July and, If il Mr does not rule In December, we are sure ol tbe faot tbat ibe December meeting will lo' sbHh fy tbe membership. We must not lorget tbe fr g* fact that when we crltio.se ouractlon at the W f. _ July meeting that we ontlclse tbe action of B g (1 tbe majority of the delegates there, and tbat W A these delegates represented tbe large majority of tbe membership of tbe mate Union at ^ i , that time. OUt this COUpO f Therefore about the only plausible and rea- Th#? sanitnl fKon sonable excuse lor calling this special meet- oanuot v->nen lng, only Ave month* alter we met in Juiy, with a $1.00 bill ai may be In giving tbe new members who .1 1 .1 ?>ave come in since July the opportunity of tnTOUgn US tne ( participating In castm* the votes that choose n-jrlrncr^c r>f Qonitn the managers for the next seven month*. ui o<umu But some may say tbat the act ol Joining the satisfactory toilet anion under tbe leadership of the present offl- 1 . . 1 .1 cera was equivalent to an endorsement of toe regular tOtcu retail present officials of the union. At bent this December meeting cannot be called anything else out a kind of revolution or revolt at our own actions. Our constitution that wan adop ted to guide the action of the union has not ^^??1 guided the action of some of our officials but little more than the curl In a pig's tail con* \WPSJ trols or guides tbe movements of tbe pig's JtS^L 1 nose I trust tbat when the union does meet 1 agoln that the delegaUs will not be In hast<: but will be very delibtrate, conservative aud reasonable In tbelr actions, and tbat every member of the convention should be called ^ on|to bold up bis pledge to abide by. the rule h -1 of the majority vote and all go back home qf"xrQ who reneweu uririujiuawvu %,%* nu.n vu.^ vr ?r?_ for the Union of the whole and disregard per- jy_ Bonal Interest, and then peace and harmony WY I will reign.

When the Greenville and Columbia ralload was ballt, tradition baa it that Cokesnry and Dne West contributed money to the ulldlng of the road on oondltlon that It dfd ot rnn tbrougb their towns. Cokeebury and >ue West towna were communities then, aa ow, filled wltb the beat of people, and eaoh ad a good college, which sent oat son* to less mankind wblle they prospered and aade snooeas for themselves. Cokeebnry eased to grow. The population In Due tVest, m owever, Inoreaaed In numbers. And, aa Ime passed, each town began to feel the need C >f a railroad, and each was hopeful of having n iron highway. A road near,or through ftkeabnrr was surveyed ane graded years go. Dae Went Id the meantime was not He. The Cumberland Gap promised to relevw the situation In that classic town, hot be road never came. But, not ao long ago, latriollc oltisens resolved lo help themaelves. ] 'hey railed money with whleb to (fade their Dad to Donalda and to famish the orose 11mbe track has been laid. The depot bas boen atlt, and everything la now )n readiness for he engine and ears which are ?zpeetid to rrlve this week. And ao It is Provldenoe J elpa thoae wbobelp tbemaelvea. To Mr. R. 8. Galloway, preeldent of the oad, la doe much of the oredlt for the saooeea f the enterprise, which shall be of nntold eneflt to the town. The road will be of reat help to all that section of the country, lesldea accommodating the people of the awn, the indents of the college, tbelr rela- J Ives and friends, it will open op a good maretfor the farming intereeta of tbesurroanddr country. Due West will be a better irade entre than ever before. It.wlll be one of tba eat ootton markets In,this section, and peole always spend money wbsre they sell oot- -4 in. There la a moat excellent ontlyinc oantry that will be glad to trade with the awn. The ootton market will be benefitted nd the bringing In of farmers supplies will e of Immense advantage. If the prosperity f the oonntry oontlnoes the road will be arever hereafter a necessity and its holidays rill deserve the thanks of everybody. ; m Away back In the flftlea when tbe Greienllleand Colombia road waa built, Dae West ad only two small stores. Ersklne College ad only flity or alzty boarding students, 'he Female college was not thought of then, ind cone of tbe elegant buildings on tbe ampas of Ersklne were then In existence, vlth an able faculty and full dormitory the 'emale College occupies a prominent place n the educational Interest of tide country, ind Ersklne College with Its iwobandrad indents standi in tbe forefront among the est Institutions of learning. In I860 tbe Dwn had but a few plain dwellings scattered ir and ?wlde apart. Now, the town has rown In numbers, and tbe bouses are elegant lodern structures, with as happy a people as ver lived. Exemplary cltlsenshlp and tbe nrlty of the moral atmosphere have.extendd tbelr Inflnenoe to the remotest bonnds be honorable example and tbe ohrisllan reoeptS ol tbe cltisens have exerted a moat ealthful Influence on tbe minds and hearts f the young of botb sexee who have gone to arled and dlatant fields of usefulness In all tie lines of noble endeavor. Andfhey tn am have Imparted their own christian eg* mple to multiplied numbers. -There Is not State In -this United States that hainot 3 een blessed by tbe aons and daughters of the ollegea at Due West. Who can estimate tbe alue and tbe Influence of a single person M rho has received a Christian education? If be pnaalbllltleaofa alngie educated inan or roman for ueefnlnaas are great, wbat.sball re aay of the noble army of Christian men nd women who have received a blewingend one ont Into all the walk* and all tSe'dllTer< nt aoenea of useful life? If Ibe Father of us ll< shall reward Individual* and Institution! y >r the good which they do then the people \ ud colleges of Due West will reoelve tbe lebest rewards. The Dispensary In Greenville. Hon. T. P. Cotbran, formerly of this city nt now of Greenville, was vtilting his old ome last 8unday. He ap*aka well of prohl. > Itlon lu Greenville, and aaya that the Law Is | aforced tnere moat satisfactorily, and with J ie beat resulta. He aay tbat there la not ' lore tban one homicide under prohibition 'here tbere used to be many. He voted for roblblllon and wonld do so again If another ' Irctlon was held In Greenville. But we djd f ot understand blm to be . In lavor of Stat* < roblbltlon. We believe be thinks (pen oommniiT ahonld aettle tbe llauoir for Itself. Or, i other words, be believes In borne' role. Le Is one of tbe authors of tbe Oary-Cothran < iw, to wblob tbls newspaper was opposed at be time of its enactment, bnt we think now bat It Is the best llqaor law that we ever ad. '4 Oar sister State, Georgia, Is to try problbl- | Ion after the first of January. And tbe sen- < imentln many other StatM la crystalling i favor of prohibition. While we bave no lea that the Legislature of Sontb Carolina rtll In Jannary pass a prohibition law yet we elleve tbat prohibition will be a mighty live uestlon in the next campaign. Candidates iay begin to find oat where they atand. bey will no doubt stand where Hampton Lood In 1876, for "Home Rule," which pla*> >rm would give eaeb county tbe perfect tgbt to ooutrol Its own affairs. If tbe hurcbes would preaoh temperance, and if ae people should express themselves at the allot box, all would be wall, hei ids burcnne Install temperance principles Into belr mea>bera,-and tbere will be no need lor be church to go Into politics. Tbe only safey to tbe people lies In good principles, sobri* ty and good morala. Wltb these tbe oounry will take oare of Itself nnder prohlblblIon or under dispensary regulation. Will Mot?.
