EDGEFIELD, S. C., THURSDAY MARCH 17, 1892. VOL. LVn. NO. IO. TO THE END. In a very humble cot, Ina rather, quiet spot, In the suds and in the soap, Worked a woman full of hope, Working, singing all alone, In a sort of undertone; "With a Savior for a friend. He will keep me to the end.*? It's a song I do not sing, .For I scarce believe a thing Of rtie stories that are told Of i;he miracles of old; Bat I know that her. belief Is the anodyne of grief, And will always be a friend And will keep her to tue end. ? * # .* * Human hopes and human creeds Have their root in human needs; And I would not want to strip Firom that washerwoman's lip Any song that she can sing And hope that songs can bring; For that woman has a friend Who will keep ber to the end. For the ADVERTISER. ROBBER_FRANZ. [Translated from the German of Werner.] The gentlemen made the poacher the subject of their, conversation. Bosnian gave all the details, and when tho artist shook his head and would not believe the travel lers had been in any danger, he exclaimed : "But what other reason could he have in following us so persist - ently? In the mountains, by the waterfalls, in the valleys-every where, he has dogged our foot - steps, and as often as we have changed our route he has suc ceeded in finding us. -But Miss Graham will unmask him; she has promised to do it, and what Miss Graham undertakes she ac complishes. She is an extraordi nary woman, and I regard my self as fortunate in having en trusted to her the education of my - da?gh ter/' He ceased speaking, for. the ex traordinary lady was approaching them hurriedly.. Her face wore a triomphant expression ; she held a newspaper in her hand. "My suspicions were correct," she exclaimed,, placing tho paper on the table. "Read !" . "What is the matter?" asked m fr "Bead!" repeated Miss Graham in a: tone that reminded one of the last trump. Mr. Berden took the gazette and read aloud the paragraph referred to: "Unfortunately the notorious poacher Franz Emminger, called poacher Franz, who eight days ago - escaped from prison at C., has not yet been recaptured. For viola ; tion of the game laws and for dangerouly wounding a forester he had been sentenced to a long imprisonment, and has effected hie escape with as much skill as daring. It is reported that he is larking among the mountains, and he is ?seing searched for on all sides, though, as yet, without suc cess." "Well?" asked Miss Graham, looking down upon the gentlemen with an air of great superiority. "You have a wonderful know ledge of men," said Berden respect fully, and the artist who now be came serious, remarked : "That was certainly dangerous company." Mr. Rosman shud dered now that the danger was passed. "When I think that we have had this man near us day by day ! . What now? We must give in formation." "That is done already," said Miss Graham. "I have given a hint to the hotel keeper, and chance favors us, so that the cap ture of the criminal may be ex pected immediately. An hour ago two gendarmes, sent to pur sue Poacher Franz, arrived here, and the judge of this district, who is on a pleasure trip, happens to be in the hotel. The necessary steps will be taken without delay. Mr. Rosman, go for Adele. She is sketching over there in the woods, bat it is better for her to bo in the boase as we cannot know what may happen. Mr. Berden, follow me to the judge ; we are necessary to identify the poacher." Miss Graham commanded like a general, and found ready obedi ence. The Banker went patiently towards the woods which were within gunshot of the hotel. Mr. Berden would have preferred the mission which had Adele for its object, but he dared not oppose the energetic lady, and followed her; the painter did likewise, feeling an interest in the affair. In a private room of the hotel there was a great council held, Miss Graham and the judge taking leading parts. Miss Graham's tal ent for leadership greatly im pressed the judge, and as she had most.closely observed the poachei and could give the most infc tion concerning him, her ai ance was very valuable. It was agreed to keep the ter quiet for the .present in < not to frighten the other g' and scare off the poacher. Graham had seen , him only hour, ago. sneaking around house in a very suspicious mai and she even knew which diree he had taken, while the judge of the opinion that the crim who no doubt had some sell on foot, was hiding in the ra just beyond tho woods. In deference to the dange character and daring of the poa every precautionary measure tak?n. The military force, two gendarmes, was reinforced two brawny servants of the h armed with scythes and sti The judge, with whom it was j affair of honor to capture j criminal who for eight days defied the authorities, underl to conduct the attack, and Berden and the artist closed squad as a reserve. Some time elapsed, however, fore all these arrangements v completed, and Miss Grah thirsted for deeds. The ? thing to be done was to warn I man who had not yet retun He was doubtless sitting in woods telling his daughter about it; he did not suepoct t the ravine and the poacher w in such immediate proxirn Miss Graham therfore went ali to seek him and Adele. The vicinity of the bit of wo land was lonely, for the sunset 1 attracted the guests to the other s of the mountain, and Miss Grah looked for some time in vain her friends. Finally she disc ered the banker seated on ' a m covered stump, with folded hai and an unmistakable expression despair on his face. "At last I have found ye Where is Adele?",she cried, co Lip.g neaj?w^.u&^^?a unable to answer, he]only groane "OhMiss Graham!" "For God's sake, speak ! WI has happened? An accident?" Bosnian pointed to the eclgc the ravine which could be se through the trees. "There-below-" "Lies Adele?" cried Miss Gi ham horrified. "No-she is sitting down-b he-the poacher, is with her ! have seen it with my own eyes, has-" he stopped; the wor could not pass his lips. "Killed her!" screamed Mi Graham beside herself. "No-kissed her!" For this turn of affairs Mi Graham was entirely unpreparee she lost the power of speech for moment while Mr. Rosman coi tinued : "I cou?d not find Adele ar walked to the edge of the ravine on looking down I saw them si ting near together, and sudden] he knelt at her feet and she raise him up, and then-then the kissed each othorl" "And you did not interfere you did not call 'stop' in a voie of thunder?" "But I could not do that froi here," said the banker in a voi( that had no thunder in it. "Why not? I could have done and will do it, but I must have tl paternal authority at my sidi Come!" "Whither, in Heaven's name ! "To the poacher in the ravine 1 "But he will kill us both!" pei e i steel Rosman "All the same we must delive i the dove from the eagle's talom Come !" Seizing the unfortunate banke by the arm she marched awa with him, He .stumbled after he over the mossy earth, but they di not proceed far, for suddenly th people they sought appeared befor them, Adele, who was coming xv from the sravine, and behind he the poacher, who was supportinj her with great care over tho steep rocky path. "Adele! Unfortunate child!1 cried Miss Graham. The younj lady started, becarao very red : then flew to her father and threv herself on his breast. The poaclie: seemed not all friglened, only sur ? prised, and ho now stepped to wards the father and daughtei with a determined air. j "Back !" screamed Miss Graham ; while like an enraged lioness she . planted herself before her pupi! . and with outstreched arms forbade [ approach. "Nota step farther!' ' j and Rosman, influenced by hoi heroism, repeated in a complain voice : "Not a step farther !" "But papa, Miss Graham, reasonable!" interrupted Ad( "You don't know-" "We know all! You ht kissed each other!" "Well, yes- we were on the w to Papa, because-because we i engaged !" "This blow will kill mc groaned the banker, while M Graham for the first time in 1 life showed signs of fainting. "There he is! Seize him eried the voice of Mr. Berdf while that gentleman remained i visible. The scouting party h unperceived leached tho spc from the bushes gleamed scyth and alpine stocks, aud the fr gendarmes pointed their guns the body of the criminal. "Surrender, Franz!" cried t judge, who was now seen bet we the troeE. "You are surrounde and at the least sign of fl ig you'll be fired upon. Surrender "For God's sake, stop! Frai they want your life !" cried Adc terrified, and she ran and fea lessly placed herself beside li threatened lover. "No, this is going too far ! Tl little comedy must not end m powder and lead," exclaim! poacher Franz in the purest Ge man. -'Away with your gum And you, sir, who appear to be tl commander, give mo an explan tion." The judge started ; that was ni the language of a peasant, and;- tl young lady who seemed ready protect him with her body mac the situation more perplexin But no\r the painter pushed asic the bushes and stood in front < the poacher. "Franz are you possessed, thi y ?u allow yourself to be capture for a poacher? It is a mistak judge, - an entire mistake ! I' ^nd^f^my^frientU^whose, nan you ?ll know-it is Franz Rohden ! "Oh !" cried the judge, and "Oh ! said also Rosman, taking a lou breath, while Miss Graham stoo like a pillar of salt. It was th name of of a distinguished artif that the painter had given name known and loved hero in th mountains. Franz Rohden wc in the habit of taking the moun tain folks as models for his pic hires, copies of which hung in a] the mountain hotels. The ger darmes alone had no appreciatio of the situation ; they had com out to capture Poacher Franz an their fury would not abate ; the kept their guns levelled until th judge advanced and told the a] leged criminal he was delighted t form his acquaintance. "But Mr. Rohden, how cou! you mystify us so?" asked th banker reproachfully. " "The ladies and gentleme: were the cause of it," returnei Franz Rohden laughingly. "Yoi engaged me' as gnide when yoi were lost in tin forest." "Because you were dressed as mountaineer and spoke their dia leer." "Well, I am a child o' th mountains and know the languag of my habitat ! Pardon me ! took the position and the mone\ and you see I was pleased for I re raained. Here, Mr. Borden, ar the two marks which you paid me I only took them on condition o restoring them." Mr. Berdeen, who had only corni out from his safe place in tbj bushes when thc mistake had beei announced, took the money wit] a dumfounded expression, whili the judge remarked : "Tho affair might have beei very serious if the gentlemai there had not recognized you ii time. You could not have knowi that Poacher Franz had broker out about the time you joined th? party and was lurking in thii neighborhood." "No, and I did not know I had t very suspicious looking face anc fhe features of a criminal," saic Rohden with an ironical bow to wards Miss Graham. "This hu railiating knowledge has onl} come to me to-day." "Sir," stammered Miss Granare in great embarassmout. Fortu nately the artist carno to hoi . rescue and said : * "Well, you acted in a suspiciouf manner. Why did you alwayi , disappear so soon as they came in sight of a hotel?" "For a very simple reason. Sc i soon as I left my room and ap ' poured at the table the comedv ? would have been at an end ; tb?re ? fore I always fell back. "X came near spoiling my fun at i last moment I disappeared quickly a3 possible when I s? you on the hotet terrace. Yo recognition .would have betray me." ;. "But why did you follow us| persi8tantly?" asked Rosman, b ( stopped, for the glowing cheeks his daughter were his answ< Rohden also blushed slightl while he slowly drew nearer: . "Why? Because I had look too deeply into a pair of blue ey and could not leave! Don't 1 angry, Mr. Rosman ; Adele's an: iety about my safety has betraye us. We were coming to ask yoi blessing when they fell upon me Rosman did not look at a angry. Poacher Franz would hi have been welcome as a son-ii rla\v, but he had not the least ol jebtion to Franz Rohd^u, an bending over his daughter he sait "You bad child ! Have you ii tentionally made us so anxioue Wore you in the plot?" The young girl smilingly shoe her head. "No Papa. I suspected, indee* from the first day, that our guie was other than what he seeme< but I could not bo certain as h played his part so well. In th ravine he threw off his incognit and told me his real name." Rosman looked at Miss Grahai and she looked at him ; they kne1 how thc denoument had bee brought about ; but Miss Grahai looked indignant. 1 It was in th highest degree unbecoming ? tha they had kissed without waitih for the father's sanction. .

HEED YE! (Iv.. Licut.-Governor Gary's Speech to thc Farmers of Abbeville, March 5,1892. Mr. Chairman:' It was wholly unexpected on my j part that I would be called on to day for a speech, but as I am always ready to respond when my fellow-citizens call on me I will say -t, few words. When I recall the fact that this is a Farmers' Movement meeting, and that the organization has been in existence several years, the question naturally arises, why are you organized? The answer is from necessity. In this age in dividuality is swallowed up in trusts, syndicates and combina tions, and you had to organize to j cope with them. What could in dividual farmer have done with the jute trust? Yet the Alliance] was able to dictate terms, These, trusts, syndicates and| combinations extend to every de partment of life, and are an incu bus on our rights. They are not Confined to Ihefiriancial'world, but heretofore took charge of the poli tics of the country, and a person who was not in the combine was generally afraid to run for office nhless some political chaperon had taken him nuder his wing. yTwo years ago we determined to | organize against the political syn dicate in our State, and I am happy to say we were victorious. As one of your public servants I will give) a; short account of our steward ship. After a heated campaign wo suc ceeded in electing to the highest office in South Carolina Governor B. ,R. Tillman, and from the time he entered upon the discharge of th?? Hiiities of his gffic? certain so caiied DemocratSjhave waged an ^:y<>n rlu?tj . > ?V - T.'. . . ? 'xi Ktt .ry:. \ iiix?h au-! ?!..;:.! he W not ?ait rd for - . .. ' . t til : :i.-.v '_.~v. v>.?:?X. IlittftBr? do not seem to be the reasons. They try to deceive you by pre tensions that they object to Till man, when their real objection is that they who have held power for so many years in our State, no longer enjoy that pleasure. THE FIGHT IS AGAINST TILLMAN. Fellow Citizens: The fight is not against Governor Tillman as an individual, but because he is the representative of the Reform movement. I want each and every one of you to realize this fact fully, that the fight is against the Re form movement; and every one of its sympathizers should feel that the same fight is against him. They would make the same fight against any other person who was not in their political syndicate. History repeats itself and we find the same fight was made against Patrick Henry and Andrew Jackson when they espoused the cause of the people. They were called demagogues, and other ap probrious names in order to make them odious in the eyes of the peo ple, but to no avail. They attacked their private characters, and noth ing was sacred from their calum nious attacks. A young and handsome noan who was a crack shot with a pis tol was made a catspaw to bring | on a fight with Jackson by insult ing his wife, and lost his life. They said so many harsh things against Jackson that a foolish man inflamed by the words of the poli ticians tried to assassinate him. The people did not lose confidence in Patrick Henry and Andrew Jackson, and when On one occasion Jackson put a judge under arrest and was fined one thousand dollars, the people through their represen tatives refunded him the amount paid with interest. POLITICAL KINGSTERS. We find the political ringsters always hand and glovo with the money . powers and corporations. In virginia Patrick Henry ex posed.the corruption practiced by certain of the members of the Assembly in using the public funds contrary to law and its President was ruined by the ex posure. Andrew Jackson after a great effort succeeded in abolish ?shing the Uuited States banks and its branches although the poli ticians and persons interested in them said the country would be ruined if they were abolished. One of the objections against them was the favoritism displayed to making loans. In our time we see the rich corporations on the side of the political syndicate, and trying to make the government by the j plea representatives a failure, see the conspiracy on the par certain railroads to obstruct collection of taxes, and as tl hold their charters by consent the people, it seems that such 1 islation should be enacted as v prevent a repetition of such a c< sp i racy. We also see an effort made foist fraudulent bonds, on the St by parties knowing them to fraudulent, null ftnd void, who J opposed to the present administ tion. I am proud of Goveri Tillman's utterance when t threat was made to hold him : dividually responsible for refusi to accept them and give possessi or the property. TILLMAN'S ADMINISTRATION. It has been asked what has t present administration acco' plished. It has lowered the tax' gained the Coosaw case by whii the rights of the State were p] tected, maintained thc dignity the State, had made progress 1 ward opening Clemson College, u til the work was checked by pi venting the State from receivii the proceeds of the salo of Ag] cultural Hall, when the attem was mado to pay the bid in frau ulent bonds by our political opp nen ts. We have in progress the estai lishment of an Industrial Collei for our women. We have, as far as possible u der existing laws, equalized tax tion, which can not be thorough accomplished until the laws a perfected. Lynching has almo entirely been stopped. Wo ha^ given equal rights to all and sp cial privileges to none.

Henci forth merit shall be the only crib rion of success. THE MARCH CONVENTION. Those who have called the Cor vention in March claim to be ver anxious to preserve the unity c the party when their action i compelled to have a contrary effec How can a heated, perhaps bloody campaign, unite the tw factions. I can tell them how t have unity. Let them uphold th standard bearers of the Democ racy, join them in the fight agains the Republicans, cease their conj plaining, and speak of the gooi done by the administration, in stead of always trying to criticis their standard bearers. They wi! eventually find out their mistake as effectually as they found ou that a March Convention is no irregular and undemocratic. Tw years hence if there is not a bitte campaign this year, the faction will come together, and politica matters will adjust themselves without friction. j We would be willing to d< ?political justice to those who ma] have differed with us. We cannot however have a har monious union two years fron now, if a heated campaign thii ' year entails a legacy of bitterness j The friends of the Reform move I ment have shown a greater desire to do political justice than theil ?opponents. We elected Judge Mciver Chief Justice by a unani : mous vote, al?o Judge Norton ami (Judge Fraser, all of whom ar( political opponents, as ip wei] known to the present administra tion. I could mention other acts ol this kind, fn 1882 we had in Abbeville county a campaign as bitter as the campaign two years ago in the State. After thc primary election we all fell in line and elected the nomi: nees of the party; year aftei year those lines were obliterated, and we have time and again seen those, who formerly opposed each other, elected in the same cam paign, and frequently supporting those of the other faction. One reasan Abbeville did not get ae wild as some of the other counties in its opposition to the Reform movement was because the people knew thal in n Bhorl time matters would adjust themselves, as . happened before. There is a striking contras! the way the people stood h] Governor from the ranks of political enemieb, and the wa] which our political enemies st by a Governor of the peo When Governor Hampton elected ali held up his hands J endeavored to make his governm a success, the people even p their taxes when there was no '. compelling them, to an agent of government. On the contrary th are so-called Democrats who h have never lost an opportunity criticize the administration, ? to throw obstacles in the way its success. The Railroad Cc panies have endeavored to erip j the government by refusing to ? taxes,, and the attempt has b< made to pay for State prope with fraudulent bonds THE REFORM MOVEMENT IS STRO] Tho Reform movement stronger than it was in 1890, a its advocates are moro determin to carry out its principles. T people aro not deceived by thi talk of unity, and abuse of Tillm by the opposition. The oppositi are not after preserving.poMtfr. The people are educated political matters; they ha experienced the pleasure of taki part in the government, ai electing their public servants, ai they will not soon surrender the rights to any set of men to act f them. The people have for t first timo -in the history of o government deliberately ms de 1 their minds to exercise the rig to select their officials, and rii rul?is at least for the presei destroyed. - From the time I commenced n public career I enlisted on the sh of the people, against rin?* j~?" i"4t.nd If-'p?seiblci I ar?? stronger v? ? ?rnuiois thai?. ever \?'itli?'U.-,ltnlll ' : H'Ith ?hrv ?i>awd ?.'or Liberi? Upon Sunday morning, Februai 21st, a policeman patrolling h beat in West Street, in this ci was astonished by a strange spe tacle-a grouy of about 200 colore people gathered upon the sidewal in the rain, who announced th? they were going to Liberia. Th? comprised men, women, and chi dren, evidently from the rur regions of the South, clad, son in primitive Sunday garb ,othe in coarse patched plantatic clothing. This assemblage prov? to be a band of emigrants fro: near Muldrow Station, 25 mill northwest of Fort Smith, in tl lands of the Cherokee natioi On the afte-?jpoon of the same da another party of 34 negroes fro: Arkansas arrived in the city, boun forthe same destination. Wit imaginations excited by arich extolling Liberia, which Bishc Turner had written to the negi Methodist papers, and byliteratui which the American Colonizatio Society, with headquarters i Washington, had sent to th Southern negroes, they were read to credit other reports, false an greatly overdraw, upon the sam topic. These imaginative talei magnified by repetition, hav inspired in the negroes of man Southern communities the belie that once arrived at New Yorl they would be transported t Liberia free ; that upon reachin; that couutry each man would ge a bounty of $50, with an allotmen of good land ; and that all emi grants would be provided witl subsistence for the first six monthe Misled by such reports, thesi negroes had been induced to eel their farms, farming tools, am live-stock at the best prices they could get. and with such householc goods as they could well carry along, secure emigrant transporta tion to New York, where the} landed penniless-a charge upoi: the charitable of tba city. Com passionate people took the helplesf waifs in hand; and after much shifting about, they at last found food and shelter at the Stepher Merritt Mission at No 208 Eight! Avenue. Here they were fed and protected until the next Fridaj when, by orders of the Board ol Health, they were dispersed tc diff?rent lodgings about the city Thc onlv m eau s of transporta tion to Liberia is by means of ? small trading and passenger bari which sails from New York tc Monrovia two or three tinieea year It can properly carry only about 40 adult passengers, the list ol which is usually filled to. the fuli of its sailing. The statement of this fact to negroes who have taken the trouble to inquire, however, has produced no evident effect in prevent, ng their flocking to New York, inspired whth the simple faith that if once they reach this city, they will bewared for somehow, and sent on to Africa. This unreasonable exodus; un like that which thirteen years ago precipitated thousands of Southern negroes upon Kansas, does not appear to be brought about by the complaint of unfair usage among employers in the South. It is rather a pleasing delusion spread among a credulous people that Liberia is a "land flowing . with milk and honey," in which ono may live luxuriously with little work. To have seen this destitute yet light-hearted people crowded together in the Merritt Mission, bewildered at the bustle of the great city about them, yet con tented and merry under the protection that charity has afforded, ie to be impressed with the fact of their utter unfitness to be colonists in a new country. With the extreme unhealthiness of Liberia, the time and labor required to clear the soil ' for cultivation, the low rate of vages, and the absence in such emigrants of habits of self-reliance, the lot of those who should go there without a useful trade and money would be indeed deplora ble. - : Various plans have been proposed to provide for those negroes now arrived in the city, one of which is the raising of a fund to send them onward to - Liberia. This course has various objections, not the least of which would be its tendency to induce many others of their race in the South to '-Mrs;.>pt the sam ^jij-raL?o? ,\a.;,.v nmrepared for - :-Ag, v.:;li v--d resul.', [oj the * \ <C-:..<?:??. ? corking, j? lenient to ^ and' its : Inf o?ui ion : - . robita charge ! ! . . T. ; ? tose already arrived, it is probable that a sufficient fund will be raised to send back to the locality from whence they came such as desire to return and efforts made' to secure employment here for those who choose to remain. Prompt action in the direction of checking this migration will benefit, most of all, the hapless people deluded by false reports ; and the best opinion among the most intelligent of their own people inclines ito such a course. To send bac k to their homes all who may arrive without resources for African colonization, with the diffusion of correct information through all the newspapers and church orgaization of this race, will serve best to counteract the influence of unscrupulous agents seeking commissions from rail roads, or desiring to dispossess the negroes from valuable lands. CLARENCE PUDLEX. Love is always a burden bearer. The democrats of the house do not seem to think that there is only one issue before the people. The Imperial University at Tokio, Japan, is probably the largest in the world, having an enrolment of two thousand scholars and a faculty of forty members. It is under governmet control. An English tramp, arrested and brought before the justice of the Petworth police court for the crime of "damaging some cut clover by sleeping on it," was fined by the justice, with the alternative of going to jail for eight days. "The Petition of Right" was a celebrated English statute passed early 1 in the reign of Charl?s I of England for the purpose of restrianing and limiting the acts and prerogatives of the crown, and securing the personal and civil liberties of the. subject. Londoners are very much inter ested in the discovery that the origi nal home of cashmere shawls is not Cashmere, but Germany .Large quantities of German made .shawls are taken to India with imitations of Cashmere marks on them and sent into the into the interior and sold as native products, A recent traveller in Morocco says that for people who dress in white and love to be very neat in their personal appearance the Moroccans are very indifferent to the cleanli ness of their towns. Around the most beautifuly furnished houses are heaps of refuse and the bodies of dead animals. All the care of the care of the people is centred upon the interioro! their houses. They furnish them ag expensively as their means permit, but what, is outside of their walls does not
