"She has not given me the

her the rules of wifely conduct

Negro Company Disbanded.
j Governor McSweeney, on WeiK
nesday, says a Columbia dispatch,
disbanded the Capital City Guards,
' a local colored militia company, j
| wh'ch engaged in riotous conduct (]
I on the state capitol grounds on ^
j Labor Day. \1 It Cooper, sec re
i tary of stute, has forbidden color- j
ed militia to use the capitol c
grounds hereafter. In the police j
court the rioting members wove I;
find $40, and some double that ^
amount, for contempt. This is
the best drilled company in the
i si mo, mine or DiacK, and lias
been largely suppt rted by white
people. Hut stringent methods
were deemed necessary to avoid
another clash. Theaffuirof Labor
Day was caused by two young ^
white men driving into the ranks
of the negro company, and enrai;ing
its mem tiers, who were not B
justified to the extent thoy went, r
clubbing inoffensive people with ^
riffes. Tho negroes have 10,000 e
rounds of ammunition, which they *
bought themselves. (
