THURSDAY, JAN. 4,1894.
The United States Postal Note
is to be abolished.
The bankruptcy bill has been
defeated in Congress. _
By a recent fire Manning lost
$75,000 worth of property.
A most destructive fire occurred
in "Winnsboro on Dec. 22.
South Carolina has the largest
* militia cavalry of any State in the
Union.
It takes nearly two-thirds of the
cotton crop of the United States to
pay pensions north of the Ohio
river.
The salary reduction bill which
passed both houser of the Legisla
ture will make a net saving to the
State of about $45,000 per annum.
After being in session twenty
six days and passing about two
hundred and eighty act.?, the
Legislature adjourned sine die at
11.30 o'clock Saturday morning
December 23th.
Eighteen and ninety-three has
gone, and we hope she'll never
come back. She was the worst of
the series. War, pestilence, and
famine-she was all combined and
then the tale isn't half told.
The State Dispensary employees
on Monday, Dec. 18th, worked all
that day and until late at night,
breaking the bottling record. In
that time they had put up 24,544
bottles of whiskey, equal to 2,200
gallons.
The ?Legislature has coupled
with the appropriation for the
support of the South Carolina
College a provision that at the
next session young ladies be
allowed to enter not lower than the
junior class._
And now the Port Royal Post
rises and remarks that the turnips
and other seeds, contributed by
the generous Congress of these
United States for the relief of the
Sea Island cyclone sufferers, are
no good, they did not even ?prout.
It is said that ex-Mayor Samuel
A. Townes, of Greenville, is cer
tainly to be appointed internal
revenue colicocor for the State of
South Carolina. The Greenville
case.
The new form of postoffice money
order which will soon be distrib
uted to the postoffices throughout
the country will have the namo of
the payee in the order, thus mak
ing them negotiable like a bank
check, and of course no letter of
advice will be necessary.
It is apprehended that crashes
in business are to be general
throughout this country during
this month, January. The finan
cial stringency is great. Many of
last years accounts remain unpaid,
and the banks will have to carry
over a great many accounts until
next fall.
A concurrent resolution passed
both branches of the Legislature
of this State, which has just ad
journed, asking Congress to pro
vide for the coinage of silver as
well as of gold. There is no ob
jection to this concurrent resolu
tion, but it is like casting pearls
before swine.
The United States has stationed
a revenue officer at the dispensary
in Columbia at the suggestion or
request of Dispenser Traxler. The
officer when he first got on the
ground examined everything about
the State bottling works and was
very much gratified, so those in
charge of the insitution say, with
the system and neatness with
which the business is conducted.
In consequence of the resigna
tion of the office of Lieutenant
Governor by Hon. Eugene B.
Gary, who was commissioned as
Associate Justice of the Supreme
Court from July 29,1864, Senator
W. H. TimmermaD, of Edgefield
who has been president pro tempore
of the Senate, becomes Lieutenant
Governor of the State and has
taken the oath of office as such
before U. R. Brooks Esq., of the
Secretary of State's office.
The Baptist Courier says :
"Christians should labor for
something higher and better,
while, of course, they look upon
the dispensary as a less evil than
the bar-rooms that havo passed
away.",
"That have passed aicay." These
four last words of our contem
porary convey a tribute to the dis
pensary law that he wots not of,
else he would be an ardent ad
mirer of that law instead of
damning it with faint praise.
Thus far the winter has been
phenomenal in its mildness.
A number of fires, causing great
loss of property, occurred at Bir
mingham, Ala., during the holi
days.
Prendergast, the murderer of
Mayor Harrison, of Chicago, has
been convicted and condemned to
be hanged.
A compan}' of British soldiers,
under Capt. Wilson, have been
massacred by the Matabeles in
South America.
December 29 was Gladstone's
eighty-fourth birthday. His is
truly the most remarkable figure
of this wonderful nineteenth cen
tury.
The body of Miss Yeargin, who
was drowned in Cayuga lake sev
eral weeks ago, was washed ashore
Christmas night. It was forwarded
to her parents at Laurens.
The revolution in Brazil con
tinues. Rio Janeiro is being vio
lently bombarded and a number
of persons have been killed by the
bombs. All the shops in the city
are closed, the people are panic
1 stricken, and to add to the horror
yellow fevor in the worst form has
broken out. The United States has
several vessels in the harbor to
? protect our interests in Rio.
The trade review of Dun & Co.,
of New York, for the year now
closing, states that 1S93 has proved
in sudden shrinkage of trade, in
commercial disasters and depres
sion of indusiries, the worst for
fifty years. The year closes with
prices of many products the low
i est ever known, and with millions
of workers locking in vain foi
work. Let us hope that 1894 will
bring a brighter record and more
prosperous times.
Under the new dispensary law
a citizen can buy out of the State
and bring into the State and carry
to his home as much as one gallon
of liquor without violation of the
law. He can also keep in his house
for his own use as much as five
gallons without violation of the
law. The State board of coi.troi
! has also the power under the law
now, to reduce the price of liquor
where brought by the gallon or in
larger quantities than a gallon.
Ail these are excellent features
and an improvement on the- o d
law of last year and add to instead
of taking from the liberty of the
i citizen.
T?is is War.
Charleston Sun.
A white maa has been whipped
by a mob of twenty negroes in
Spantanburg county for the
offence of being a State constable
appointed to assist in executing
what the Legislatvre and some of
the courts of Stale have declared
to be lr.w.
While going home, says the
dispatch, "he was attacked by a
crowd of negroes and severely
whipped to excess along the rail
road, a distance of several squares.
Pieces of rubber hose were used to
do the whipping with. Davis was
made to take off his hat and ad
dress these negroes as gentlemen
and also to swear that h6 would quit
Tillman's service and go home."
And some of the extreme auti
Tillman organs are so lost to all
sense of the public good and pub
lic safety aa apparently to applaud
this deed. There is where they go
beyond Governor Tillman in his
worst folly! There is where by
comparison the odious dispensary
law becomos a gospel of truth and
light!
A law officer whipped in a
public place by a ner?ro mob for
performing his duty, white men
stood by aiding and abetting the
deed by their presence? The anti
Tillman party will not recover
from the effect of that one blow
for many a long day.
No, men and brethren ; this is
not child's piny. It is a race
issue with all the rights of law and
justice on the side of the white
men as against the negro des
peradoes and their white
sympathizers. Now the natural,
tendency of the dispensary law to
be unpopular has been more than
offset by the stirring up of a pre
judice beside which it sinks into
insignificance.
Were it not so 'disgusting it
would be amusing to watch the
scramble of 'Conservatives" for
Federal offices. In and out of
season they charge Reformera
witb office-seeking and {condemn
them for it, but for every office
that Grover Cleveland has to give
he finds a host of "Conservative''
applicants. They vie with each
otherin lauding Cleveland to tho
skies, seeming to think that the
most skillful flatterers will stand
the best chance of getting the
office; that the way to bis heart i ?
through his vanity. Doubtless they
have not studied him in vain. They
are meeting with fine success in
securing offices, though of course
there are not enough to go around.
-Prosperity Reporter,
CURTAIL THESE COURTS!
Thc Liberty of Thc People
Threatened.
Columbia Register.
The newspaper reporters flocked
to the Executive Mansion last
night to interview Governor. Till
on the decision of the United
States Supreme Cou.it in the
Swan case. He was not in the
least excited, but said, in auswer
to a multitude of inquiries:
"Prejudice don't even stop at
Washington. Before I say any
thing I want to seo what, possible
excuse they can have for such a
stretch of judicial authority."
Tho Governor was then asked
for an expresoion on the simple
fact that the decision was against
the State. He answerer!, and there
was something af a prediction in
what he had to say :
"Well, I can say that it only in
tensifies the demand that must
arise for the curtailment of the
powers of tho Federal Court, or we
will have no liberty at all. It
further shows that the Federal
Supreme Court is not above
partisan decisions when aimed at
the Reform movement. If we can
not arrest contraband liquor in tho
hands ef a receiver we cannot ar
rest a murderer on a train run by
a receiver, for tho State law is
paralyzed by every such decisson
as this. Swan had disobeyed no
order of the court. He was simply
guilty of a trespass. I imagine
my message had more to do with
it than the law. I can stand it,
however."
This was all the Governor would
Bay, bat it was brief aud breezy,
thorough iv characteristic of tho
man why is fignting what he be
lieves is tho infringement of
States' rights by the Federal
Courts.
This decision of the courts will
put Swan in jail to serve tho senten
ce passed upon him by Judge
Siiuonton.
Carpenter i ir Jail.
William Carpenter, who about
four years ago was convicted of thc
murder of Preston Yonco, and es
caped from the Edgefield jail
a short while before he was to
have been executed, gives the
following account of his wandering
aud doings since said escape, as
taken from an interview with him
published in the Augusta Chronicle
of Dec. 22ud last:
"It was in June, four years ago,
when Preston Yonce was killed.
I don't remember now just how it
was, but any way George Murreli,
the road near Edgefield when we
met Yonce [and had some words.
Yonce shot at ^us first and I re
turned the fire. We did not know
that'he was hurt badly, so the
next day, which was Sunday, I
got Murre] to go down to Yonce's
house to see how he was. When
he got there he was arrested, Yonce
had died. Then they arrested me
and we were put in jail. We were
tried and found guilty of murder
and sentenced to hang in the fol
lowing Jauuary. In December we
managed through the aid of
friends to get some tools in the
jail and we bored out from the
cell to a room below, and from
there found it easy to get away.
Murrell was c ught a little while
after, but I managed to get away
from the officers, For two months
I did not sleep in a house but
lived in the swamps near Edgefield.
My food was brought to me by
friends. Afrer thia I came to J
Augusta, walked up the Georgia
Raihoad and got on the train at
Harlem. From there I went to
Atlanta and then to Fayette
County. I worked on a farm near
Fayette ville for ?two years under
the name of Henry Dixon.
"Leaving Fayette County I went
to Dodge County and got a job as
a convict guard at the camps near
Amoskeag. This place I held for
two years up to six weeks ago.
"One day I went to Eastman
and there got in a fight with a
negro named Geo, Walker and after
being shot by him I killed him.
That night I went back to the
convict camp to get my wounds
dressed and was arrested and sent
to jail in Macon on the charge of
murder, I don't know how the
people in Edgefield knew where I
was, and thc first thing I knew of
it was when Mr. Hardy came for
to-day. We left then to-day and
got here tc--.light."

Here is an instance of a fire that Las
been burning for rentares. According
to the testimony of the Duchess of Cleve
land, thc great hearth fire in the hall of
Raby castle has never been suffered to
expire. This castle is perhaps the no
blest and must perfect specimen of feu
dal architecture in England. It was in
the large bar quoting hall of this famous
mansion that ages ago 700 knights are
said to have paid suit and service to the
earls of "Westmoreland, one of the many
titles borne hy the princely family of
the Nevilles.-London Tit-Bits.

Tho Curious ?>Ian.
The curious man is a queer individual.
He it is who looks into guns that are not
loaded and not only finds a load, hut
has it inserted in hi3 head. He also
looks down elevator shafts, and the ele
vator approaches him from above while
he is looking. He wauts to know the
why and wherefore of everything.
Such a man became involved in a
brisk poker game once in a western min
ing town. Curious men aro not good
poker players, as they always want to
see another man's hand. This particular
curious man was an exception to the
rule. He spent much money in the pur
suit of knowledge in the.game in ques
tion, and then he grew curious as to the
origin of the phenomenal hands held hy
a swarthy part}1 the fingers and thumb
of whoso right hand had been removed,
leaving him only a slump. But he had
a very clever left, and with this he shuf
fled and incidentally left aces and kings
all over his person. At last tho curious
man caught him at it and boldly accused
him of cheating. With a vicious oath
the fellow kicked hack his chair and
reached toward his hip pocket with his
right hand stump.
"Hold on, there," cried the curious
man, always anxious for more knowl
edge. "How are yon going to pull the
trigger?'-Chicago Post.

One of the cases in which the work of
mau is superior to that cf nature is in
the material now being employed hy tho
builders of the walls of the elaborate
batteries at Tori land headlight. This
is a combination of stone, broken fine by
the steam crusher, and cement. The
compound is blocked out in molds, and
the slabs thus formed, 3 feet in length
by 1 in width, are laid ia the willis II^G
bricks. This is expected to withstand
any shot, and by actual tests is immeas
urably superior for this purpose to tho
natural stone.
Every sion? (nature's) fort throughout
the country has been condemm il. It is
proposed to erect besides a battery of
heavy guns at White Head, Cushiug'sis

southerly point of tho island. It will
have tho new breech loading mortars,
which have great accuracy as well as re
markable range. It is evident that the

point-and as such to be strongly forti
fied.-Bangor Commercial.

Leathery Winged Bats.
Most curious in origin of all nocturnal
insect hunters are the leathery winged
bats, which may bo regarded, practi

highly specialized for the task of catch

people know how nearly they are re
lated to us. They belong to the self
same division of the higher mammals as
man and the apes. Their skeleton an
swers to ours, bone for bono and joint
for joint, in an extraordinary manner.
Only the unessential fact that they have
very long fingers with a web between as
an organ of flight prevents us from in
stantly and instinctively recognizing
them as remote cousins, once removed
