THURSDAY, MAY 18,1893.
Since the unbottlingof the Port
Royal Railroad by Gov. Tillman,
that load, and the city of Port
Royal, now of course nothing but
a hamlet, is looming up to large
proportions. It seems that a lino
of ships, twenty-five ia number,
will soon be put- in commission to
run from Port Royal to Liverpool,
Havre, and the Mediteranean
ports. Somehow or other we be-j
lieve that Port Royal has a bril
liant future and that the prosperity
of that port has something to do
with the future of jour own town.
The following anont the line of j
ships we clip from thc Augusta
correspondence of the Columbia]
AUGUSTA, Ga., May 12.-J. A.
Wellsford, of Liverpool, represent
ing William and Edward Johnson,
of Liverpool, arrived this morning I
for the purpose of negotiating for J
their line of ' ships to enter Port
Royal harbor and to give that town
direct trade with Liverpool, Havre,
and tho Mediteranean an ports.
They have about twenty-five ships
they can place on this line.
Mr. Wellsford was met in Au
gusta today by Mr. Pat Calhoun
by special appointment, and they
go to Port Royal this afternoon to
investigate the harbor. The pro
babilities are that Mr. Wellsford
wilt succeed in making arrange
ments which will be mutually ac
ceptable to the owners of the Port j
Royal and the ship owners.
The Aiken Journal and Review,
not a Tillman's paper by any means
has tho fairness lo say the follow
ing as to Governor Tillman acts
and doings in tho matter of tho
Denmark lynching. It is refresh
ing to know that an opposition
j aper has Hie moral courage to
stand up for tho truth and right in
the face of its. own friends, who
howl at every Hiing emanating from
"As for Governor Tillman's
moral connection with the affair,
he is as guiltless as any other in
dividual who was absent from
actual participai ion. It is quite
well known that wo are not an ad
mirer of Governor Tillman nor his
methods; but wc shall elohim ju?
tice as we see it. He had no mo
tive to send a victim to the mob.
He merely misjudged its temper.

thought that a crowd which had

Three lynching bees and one
legal banging for rape within two
weeks, one fiend committed to jail
for trial, another to the peniten
tiary for safe keeping, both being
charged wirh the samo diabolical
crime, within the same time, be
sides a prisoner in the Richland
jail condemned to die for the
perpetration of this heinous offense
tell a sorrowful story of the de
pravity of many of the present
generation of negroes, As long as
the rape fiend is abroad Judge

and despite'all that maybe said
to the cont rary, his sentences wiil
be executed by an outraged peo
ple.-Rock Hill Herald.
Will the negroes never learn
any thing? During the past three
weeks there have been six outrages
committed by negro men upon
unprotected girls, and women, in
this State. In three cases the
brutes have been caught and
lynched, in two of them they
are still at largo, and in the last
he is in jail. It would seem that
tho negroes would have learned,
ero this that quick death is surely
the penalty for this offense, but it
has not been tho effect of the
examples made of the brutes. So
far _from being suppressed, the
crime is on tho rapk" increase in
this State, until now it has be
come unsafe for a girl, or women
to remain alone anywhere in the
country or on the outskirts of any
town. It is* a horrible condition
of things.- Ex.
AN amusing *tory is told of
Mustapha Pasha, formerly (ho
Turkish ambassador at Eerliu. At
hisreceptioiiihewas in the h?bil
of giving a bonbon to each cf his
lady visitors, but on one occasion
he presented Ihroo to [he same
lady. Flattered ly the unusual
attention she begged a ?friend, who
spoke Turkish, lo ascer?aiu thc
reason of this preference. The
ambassador's explanation was
very sample: '"It was because her
mouth is nearly three times as big
as that of tho other ladies.".

An appropriation having been
made by the Legislature, Gov.
Tillman has had a handsome

The McDuffie Journal wants to

The Chaplain of the,. Senate of
Nevada has been accused of
plagiarism. One of the memhers
complained that the good man
introduced in his remarks the other
day, the same ideaB the Senator
had heard expressed at a funeral
two years ago. Inquiry shows that
it was the Lord's prayer that the
Senaior had reference to.
It is said that the antis are
grooming ex-President Chamber
lain as their candidate for Governor
in 1894. With that rape-endorsing
platform on which he could stand,
it would be a very suitable com
bination, and as strong a one ns
they can well mak*.-Ex.
We don't believe a word of that.
There is no anti in this State so
foolish as to take up with Cham
berlain openly. Chamberlain will
have lils finger deep in the political
pie next year, no doubt, but he
will be oui of sight, behind the
curtain; but all the same he'll be

Tho efforts of Jervey to get out of
prosecuting the Denmark lynchers,
on the ground, ?hat it would be
unconstitutional, so to do is very
iveak. and silly It shows that Till

don't know how to get out. Solicitor
?3ra\vley was sent to Edgefield
nearly as core of years ago,to prose
cute in a case in which the solicitor,
Voumans,was disqua!ified,or rather
?io, Youmans,asked to be relieved
from the prosecution. Still later
Solicitor Cothrane,of Abbeville.was
sent here by tho governor to prose
cute Clisby for the killing of Bland,
Solicitor Bonham asking to be re
ieved. We also remember that
Judge Mackey was sent here to

Carpenter. These precedents show i
hat Jervey has no ground to stand i
m and no good reasons why he j
mould not undertake the prese- i
:u^ion of the Denmark lynchers. '{

MR. EDITOR: California is a
lovely country, the sick get well,
the poor get rich, cyclones and
frosts are practically unknown. A
hundred to three hundred dollars
per acre is made each year on
fruits with irrigation. The Cali
fornia Land and Water Exchange,
of Dayton, 0., control large quan
tities of land in .California which
they plant, cultivate, riay taxes for
ten years, paying you $40 per acre
as your part of the profit, they
keeping the balance for the care
and cultivation. They give an
acre of land away with each four
certificates. All they ask you to
do is to pay for the irrigation,
which can be done in small pay
ments each month. They will
send you the names of ninety per
sons who last year received from
$25 to $500 on one year's invest
ment. President .Harrison says,
"Half of the good things of Cali
fornia have not been told." The
Hon. Jeremiah Rusk says, "Truly
California is a poor man's para
dise." To five-acre holders tho
California Land and Water Ex
change, of Dayton, 0., give a free
return ticket to view the property.
Why should any one be poor when
such a chance remains open and
you do not have to do any labor or
work, to get the profits and do not
have to leave home. Write them

A Superstition About Trees.
. - w oOUl
-vu and gods, granted on ac
count of their great age ; and they
are believed to be endowed with
power of intercession for those in
trouble. Hence the unfortunate
seek shelter under them and pour
out their woes to the sympathetic
spirit. This explains the weird
trees so often seen in the choicest
productions of the Japanese artist.
There is a legend that when the
lord of Yamato wished to furnish
hiB house completely from the
trunk of the finest cedar in his
park, the axes of the woodman
bounded from the bark and large
drops of blood flowed from every
strook."-From "A Japanese Floral
Calendar," in Demorest's Family
Raising Crops by Electricity,
Philadelphia Record.
A practical, scientific use of
electricity is made in France to
stimulate the growth and increase
the product of lield crops. An ap
paratus which has been successful
ly used is called the geomagnetic
fer, and consists of a high pole set
up in the field where the potatoos
or other crops are growing. It
supports an insulated head of
galvanized iron, which terminates
in the air in a sort of plexus of
points and branches made of cop
per. This collector of electricit}"
communicates by wire with a
network of other wires, which
ramify through the earth around
the foot of the pole, and among the
growing roots, beets, cabbages,
potatoes or other crop buried deep
enough to be out of the way in cul
tivating the crop.
It is found by experience that
this apparatus collects the electri
city which always exists in the
atmosphere, and which is made
especially manifest by storms,
rain, wind, &c, and trensmits it to
the earth and the stratum of air
nearest the earth. The resulting |
stimulus to the crop is very marked 1
In one test within a superficial ?
area of 32 meters the potato yield, .'
I'D proportion to the yield of ad
joining areas not electrically '
stimulated, was as 91 to 60. An- \
other report showed 63 kilogram?
of putatoes, as against 3S kilo
grams grown under ordinary con
ditions. Other ro^t crops and '
grapes give equally good results. ?
EMMA SWEARINGEN, gentle, lovely
EMMA, died at Ropers, March 9th, 1893,
aged fifteen years, eight months,and
eleven days. The eldest daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Swearingen, she
was a joy shedding light on all around
her, as she met each duty promptly.
It was so at school, where she' was
eyer a favorite. Her excellence there
was attained by diligence in study,
and good deportment. At Sabbath
8chool||she was a faithful attendant,and
loved to sing the songs of praise. She
loved to read Talmage's sermons, and
sometimes read aloud to the famijy.
Sometime before her death she
dreamed of going to heaven and see
ing loved ones gone before. She
thought if heaven was like her dream
represented, it was a fairer place than
earth. Her young life on earth is end
ed, but she has gone to "the house not
made with hands, eternal in the
heaven." Her place on earth is vacant,
and we miss her bright, gentle smile,
but she is free from sorrow, pain, and
parting in the land beyond the stars.
"We knew that the pearly gate of bliss
for her had swung ajar,
That her ear had caught trie angelic
strains from the beautiful land afar,
Though we saw not the white wings
unfolded to take the upward flight.
Out of this world of sorrow, to the
pathless fields of light,
Yet we know the Savior called her up
to his loving arms,
Shielded safe forever from care and
woe and harm,
By faith we behold her safe in the ten
der Shepherd's care,
Our patient "darling," we called her,
now an angel bright and fair.
But we bend in meek submission to
our Father's chastening hand,
Though in human meekness we can
not understand.
But when our tired feet from earth's
time-worn path may rest,
Then wiH we see and understand
that what God does is best."

Union Mutual Life Insurance Company.
Incorporated, 1848.
Its Policies are the Most Liberal Now Offered
to the Public.

The Maine Non-Forfeiture law protects policies from forfeiture
by reason of default of payment of premiums. It provides that, after
three years' premiums have been paid, failure to pay any subsequent
premiums shall not* forfeit a policy, but it shall continue in force for
its full araouut until the reserve (less a small surrender charge) upon
the policy is exhausted.
The reserve is a sum made up of portions of each and every pre
mium paid upon a policy in anticipation of its maturity. Beginning
with a small portion of the first premium, it is increased each year by
the addition of each subsequent premium, and grows larger year by
year, until, at maturity, it exactly equals the face of the policv. When
a policy is discontinued therefore, there is in the hands of tho Com
pany a reserve, greater or less, according to the character and ago of
the policy. Instead of permitting the Company, upon non-payment
of premium, to confiscate this reserve, the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law
requires the Company to continue the policy in force until the policy
holder receives an equivalent for it in extended insurance.
If n person, aged 35, pays throe years' premiums upon a twenty
payment Life policy and then discontinues payment, tho policy wil
be continued 4 years and 257 days longer; it he pays five premiums,
and then discontinues, the insurance will continue 7 years and 357
days longer.
If the policy is a twenty year endowment, same age, three years'
payments will give an extension of 8 years and 150days; five years'
payment 13 years, 300 days. If the policy is a 15 Year Endowment,

What It Has Done.
The Company Has Paid over Two Hundred Death Claims, in con
sequence of this law, aggregating in sums insured more than Four
Hundred Thousand Dollars.
In every case there had been a default in 'he payment of pre
mium, and, except for this law, the policies would have been of little
or no value. Instead of this, the insurance in each case was extended
to the time of death, and the Company was required to pay to the
beneficiaries under the policies the sum of $418,335.77.
T?e il? o? lie Lai E?MS as Comparefl
It is the custom of many companies to provide in their policies
that, upon discontinuance of payment of Premium, paid-up policies
will be given, without the option of extension. This was the practice
of the Union Mutual before the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law was en
acted, but it now substitutes for paid-up values the more advantage
ous plan of extended insurance. The objection to the paid-up system :
is that the amount of paid-up insurance which is given upon the dis- ]
continuance of payments upon a policy, unless it has been in force a j
great many years, is insignificant, and of little or no value as protec- ,
tion ; and it leaves the insured who ceases payment without adequate
insurauce at the very time he needs it the most. !
The great advantage of the extended insurance afforded by the ?
Maine Law over the most liberal paid-up system is strikingly shown by .
tjie following comparison, and it will be observed that the paid-up ;
value is insignificant in comparison with the amount actually paid by
the Union Mutual. The result of two hundred and twelve policies '
was this :
If the insured had received paid-up policies instead of ex- 1
tended insurance, the Company would have had to j
pay in settlement of the claims only. $98,197.50 ;
Whereas, in fact, it did pay under the Maine Law, $418,344.77 I
