Edenfield Advertiser
["HOS. J. ADAMS,.EDITOR
THURSDAY, DEC. 7, 1893.
In his message Gov. Tillman
recommends that Judge Kershaw
be appointed to complete the
Confederate rolls in this -State.
The income tax will probably
raise fifty million of revenue for
the government. The beauty of it
is, the most of it comes out of the
favored class.
Over sixty-five thousand pounds
of home grown tobacco were sold
at Darlington last week, bringing
from fifteen to sixty-seven dollars
per hundred During the season a
? million pouds of the weed will be
marketed there.
Senator Butler is still in the race
and is not to be side-tracked. He
"proposes to make an open and un
mistakable fight for re-election to
the United States Senate.
The report of his running for
governor is not true. He saj's he
will let the people of Carolina
know what he he to say in ample
time.
Governor Tillman nominates
Gen. Joesph B. Keishuw to com
plete the Confederate records and
write abrief history of the differ
ent brigades, regiments, and bat
teries, to show the date of enlist
ment, battles in which they were
engaged, and the part they took in
the war generally. The Governer
says: "This need not beIf-ngtbj,
but it will be very valuable and
dear to our children." Governor
Tillman could not have made a
better selection than the brave
knightly Kershaw.
Comptroller General Ellerbe
makes an important recommenda
tion in his aunual report as to
artificial limbs for disabled Con
federate soldiers. He says that
there are many of these soldiers
whose condition demands the at
tention of the Legislature. Some
specific amount should be ap
propriated for them. He estimates
that are about 100 of them, and
recommends that they be paid an
annual appropriation of at least
$100 each. A great many of them
have no means of support and a
county poor house stares them in
the face.
DISPENSARY FIGURES.
For the first four months of its
existence the dispensary, according
a profit of $32,108.16. This is not
enough to corrupt the taxpayer
into a desire to increase drinking
and drunkenness that he may es
cape taxation, and yet it is profit
enough to assure him that his bur
den will be no heavier by rt ason of
the law. The dispensary law is
just about good enough. These
figures have put the antis in this
strange dilemma : They maintain
ed that the law was unconstitu
tional, because, as it would raise a
revenue, it must have been devised
and intended to raise a revenue,
and was enacted for no other pur
pose. Judge Hudson simply took
up this cry and re-echoed it in a de
cision most fearfully and wonder
fully made. Now, however, these
same voices are crying out that the
dispensary don't pay enough and
will increase taxes.
LEGISLATIVE.
The Legislature met on Nov. 28.
The first bill of any consequence
introduced was one making a radi
cal reduction in the salaries of all
State offices. It went through the
House like a streak of greased
lightning, by a vote of 56 to 50.
Of the Edgefield members W. R.
Parks voted for the reduction and
the others voted against it.
On Thursday the Legislature ad
journed-Thanksgiving Day.
On Friday the House and Senate
met in joint assembly, and pro
ceeded to the election of judges.
Dr. Timmerman and Mr.Yeldell
presided over the joint sessions.

cuit without opposition ; R. C.
Watts, of Laurens, was elected

? The^House bill left over from
last sessiou, authorizing the tc
council of Edgefield to establ
water-works was indefinitely p<
poned.
Of the now bills introduced,
notice one to amend the charte:
the Farmers' Loan and Savi;
Bank of Edgefield, and allow i
increase its capital stock to $1(
000 and to execute trusts.
The following is a biograph i
sketch of the new Associate J
tice, by one who has known h
intimately :
' Eugene Blackburn Gary, I
newly elected Associate Justi
was born in the village of Cok
1 bury, Abbeville county, on the ?
of August, 1854. He is the eld
son of the late Dr. F. F. Gary,
received his early educatioi
training at the Cokesbury Cont
euee School and graduated at t
South Carolina University. Af
graduation he read law in the off
of his distinguished uncle, Gi
M. W. Gary. He has practiced ]
profession at Abbeville with ma:
ed success. He was one of the fi
to advocate the principles of t
j Reform Movement, and twice ci
J.vassed the State with Tillman, a
(was twice elected to the position
j Lieutenant Governor. As preside
of the Senate Mr. Gary has p
sided with dignity, and his rulii
have been characterized by coi
tesy and impartiality.
THE MESSAGE.
Charleston Sun.
Governor Tillman's messaj
just given to the Legislature,
the most remarkable document
its kind, in many respects, th
has ever issued in this or, perhaj
any oihor State. The circu?
stances surrounding its products
created largely by the genius
the mau who now reviews the;
I vested the paper with unusual i
terest in its anticipation, which
more than justified by theresa
Dispensing, in the main, with t
dry statistical reports whi<
usually composes so largo a portie
of such papers, the Governor sicz
on the salient features of his a
minisration with the grasp of
born master and the avidity of i
unjaded enthusiast and treats
them in the concrete-a departu
from custom which may stait
the stickler for forms and pr
ceden ts, but which does not les
serve to euchain the interest an
attention of the reader.
i The thoughts of the author ai
couched in the most vigorous an
chaste English, excepting place
where a broad suggestion now an
then is given utterance only t
add the utmost available force t
the expression. In places it risc
in dignity with the nature of th
theme and the language become
classical in its now?r. nrecisio1}
andToeaufy. In one instance tn
Governor by natural associatio
is led away from domestic topic
-in treating of the abuse of rail
road management by courts an
receiverships-to a matter c
national concern and he improve
the disgression into the nationa
domain by suggestions of valu
and moment.
Though covering an unusuallj
large amount of space the Messag
is not more lengthy than the in
terest of it and the variety of sub
jects of which it treats warrants
It will not ouly be more widelj
read in South Carolina than sucl
documents usually are but it wil
be more widely published, dis
cussed, and commented upor
abroad than perhaps the message
of any other Governor in the
Union.
The piece de resistance of Gov.
ernor Tillman's Message is nh
attack on railroad receivership!
and the abuse of the Federa'
jurisdiction by the interference
of its courts to prevent the collec
tion of taxes as assessed by lbj
State on these corporations when
they happen to be insolyent and
in the hands of the court.
The Governor here had a fail
field for the employment of hit
powerful invective against a glar
ing public wrong and his treat
ment of it is vastly more vigorous,
because of the honesty, sincerity
and justice of his indignation,
than is his treatment of the dis
pensary (juestion' where ho be
comes forced, commonplace and
uncertain owing, evidently, to the
weakness and doubtful justice of
his cause in the latter instance.
After reciting the history of tho
railroad cases, which is familiar
to our readers, he enters upon an
elaborate discussion of the
paramount right of a sovereign
State to levy and collect its taxes
upon all the subjects within its
domain, against the assumption of
a Federal court to interposa
obstacles thereto, as practiced by
the United States Circuit Court in
the case of the South Carolina
Railway.
..The right of a State to levy and
collect its taxes in its own way,"
he says' is so old. so time-honored :
the right of a receiver and the
power of the court to protect him
[ is so young, so new that the twj
j have never before n.ome into con.
! flict. For the first time in tho his
tory of American jurisprudence
twe great principles of law, both
based on justice and equity, ytetfl j
j face to face. The one with the i
'unchallenged sanction of centuries
behind it ; thu other a fungo
growth of modern judicial pi
c?dent based on the suppose
necessity of a new order of thin
but more surely resting on t.
love of power, and in this instau
having no other foundation. 0:
had to give way ; which should
have been?"
"The right of the State to lei
and collect taxes has uever bee
disputed. South Carolina derive
that right from the Kings of E;
gland. It is aright which rests
the root of government, and wit]
out it government, would cease
exist. It has never been resistf
when exercised by a soveri^
except by revolution and an a
peal to arms. In all free gover
ments, the right is exercised a<
cording to law, and ample pr<
vision are made for unjust or ii
equality in the levying of taxes
We cannot undertake to revie
the lengthy and meritorious argi
ment by which he shows that tl
authority which receivers and tl
Federal courts now arrogate I
themselves over proparty iu the
hands is only a recent intereste
and technical aosumption ot tl
court as against the fundament:
right of the State to levy taxes "I
prevent a paralysis of governmenl
We can only make extracts he]
and there of the authorities h
quotes and of the points whic
he enforces.
One striking instance is h
presentation of the evidence <
Alexander Hamilton, the fath<
of the doctrine of centralizatio
himself, as to the intention of th
founders and makers of the Coi
stitution with regard to the ind<
pendent and sovereign autonomic
ot the several States. This ui
exceptionable authoiity as againt
the upholders of national intej
ference is quoted as saying:
"I am willing here to allow i
its full extent tbe justice of lh
reasoning, which requires that th
individual States should posses
an independent and unconlrolabl
authority to raise their own re
venues for the supply of their ow
wants, and in making this coi
cession I affirm that (with the sol
exception of duties on export
and imports) they would under th
plan of the convention, ret ai
that authority in the most absolut
and unquali?ed sense; and thu
an attempt on the part of th
National Government to abridg
them in the execise of it would b
a violent assumption of powei
unwarranted by any article o
clause of its Constitution."
To vhich the Governo
judiciously add :
"I may remark in passing tba
when this was written the Con
stitution had been ratified by onl^
four States, and Hamilton wa
trying to allay the distrust of th
States. Had such claim beei
made then the Constitution wouli
never h<i.vo bfiprj rn ti fi od "
The Goveuor is moderately con
taiued until he comes to mentioi
the persons who have been in
strumental in thwarting the Stati
as he believes, of its just dues
Then his indignation knows m
bounds and his language ic
characterizing them is unmeasurec
and doubtless too strong.
"One," he says, "a Judge wh<
sucked State's rights with hif
mother's milk and now plants hil
dagger in that mother's breast, the
other an ex-carpet bagger, who ii
days past did his utmost t(
throttle Anglo-Saxon civilizatioi
in South Carolina, and who ha?
returned after fifteen years absence
to gloat over her humiliation al
the hands of his obedient instru
ment. This is very strong language
but let us see if I have not warran
for it.' '
Ile quotes Receiver Chamberlain'i
letter to him asking for an
amicable conference and arrange
ment in which that Receiver, the
alleged servant of the court, poses
as its master,and offers of "guarai
tee the most cordial assent to the
court" to an arbitration into which
he Chamberlain, will undertake
to bring every railroad now ir
litigation with the State."
"It will be seen," says the Gov
ernor "that this humble servant o?
the Court, while speaking with al]
due humility and respect under
takes to guarantee the reasonable
efforts to bring about an end to
this fight; but covetous of the
, blessing which is promised to
p.-jacernakere, wants to include ali
other railroads in the amicable
adjustment for whicn he is so
solicitous. He went on to say:
The victory to-day is with the rail
roads, but I am none the less
anxious to stop the quarrel. My
anxiety is in the interest of the
railroads. I am not afaid to cry
peace before the war begins or
goes further. I shall fight all the
better for it, if we cannot have
peace.'
"Is this the language of a
servant or of a master? I am not
afraid. 'I ahall fight-I. Who isl?
The humble receiver and servant
of Judge Simonton? Bah I The
pretence makes me sick : and that
a South Carolinian who has been
honored with the Federal judicial
ermine, should appear in so de
grading an attitude !"
The remedy he recommends to
the Legislature is to "repeal the
charters of every railroad in the
hands of a reo-iver and destroy
theso creatures which have grown
so insolent that they trample our
laws under foot under the pro
tection of this Federal Judge, and
laugh to scorn the restriction
which all citizens and other cor
porations must obey."
