The Bond Suits.
The Supreme Court has filed its
decision in the Bond cases. The
legislation and litigation on this
subject have been watched with spe
cial interest by the citizens of the
Stal There were many who were
in favor of a wholesale repudiation,
and others who favored the recog
nition of the whole bonded debt.
The course that was pursued by
the Legislature was wise, honorable
and just. Knowing that the credit
an(' good faith of the State were
involved, and recognizing the fact
that justice is higher than expedi
ency, that body put the whole mat
ter in such a shape as to reach a
fair, judicial solution of the ques
tion. A commission was establish
ed June 8, 1877, by joint resolution,
to investigate the indebtedness of
the State. This Commission was
charged with the duty of ascertain
ing the entire amount of consolida
tion bonds and certificates of stock
issued under the Act of Dec. 22,
1873. entitled "An Act to reduce
the -olume of the public debt and
to provide for the payment of the
same"-known as the "Consolida
tion Act." It was farther charged
,with the duty of ascertaining what
amount of bonds, coupons, certifi
cates, &e., had been issued in ac
cordance with law. '.The Commis
sion reported that in its judgment
$2,818,454.79 of consolidation bonds
and certificates of stock were not
issued in accordance with law. The
Legislature neither affErmed nor
disaffirmed the conclusions of the
Bond Commission, but on the 22nd
of March, 1878, passed a "Joint
resolution providing a mode of as
certaining the debt of the State and
of liquidating and settling the
same." By that joint resolution a
Court of Claims was established,
before which the validity of these
bonds should be tested. The At
torney-General, with Hon. Y. J.
Pope, of Newberry, and Hon. H. A.
Meetze, of Lexington, represented
the State. Cases"were- made up
and tried before that Court ; its de
cision was in favor of the State ;
the bondholders appealed to the
Supreme Court, and that Court
filed its decision September 27th.
Its conclusion is that all the bonds
issued under the "Consolidation
Act" are valid, with the following
exceptions: 1st. Such as were is
sued in exchange for bonds issued
under the act entitled "An Act to
authorize a loan for the relief of the
Treasury," (passed Feb. 17, 1869.)
2nd. Such as were issued in ex
ehange for the second issue of
bonds under an act entitled "An
Act to authorize a State loan to pay
interest on the public debt," (passed
Aug. 26, 1868.) and, 3d. Such as
were issued in exchange for those
conversion bonds which were issued
for either of the two classes of
By the Act of Feb. 17, 1869,
~88,000 of bonds were issued ; and
by the Act of Aug. 26, 1868, $1,
197,000 were issued. The Act of
Dec. 22, 1873, provided that the
State Treasurer should receive all
outstanding bonds of the State and
~give in exchange for them new
bonds (consolidation bonds they
are now called) at fifty cents on the
dollar. All the bonds of the classes
above specified were not consolida
The decision of the Supreme
Court knocks up upwards of a mil
lion of dollars of the so-called State
debt under the Consolidation Act.
The principle upon which the de
cision stands is that wherever bonds
have been issued in accordance with
the Constitution and the Statutes
the State is bound for their pay
ment no matter what frauds and
ivtregularities the officers and agents
of the State were guilty of in put
ting them into circulation.
The opinion was delivered b,y

The Penitentiary Convicts.
Much discussion and serious
charges have prevailed recently in
regard to the treatment of hired
convicts. It appears that thC con
victs have, in some cases, been
treated with extreme severity, a
mounting almost to barbarity. The
chief complaint has been against
the authorities of the Greenwood &
Augusta Rail Road, in the construe
tion of which large numbers have
been employed. The mortality has
been fearful, and numbers have been,
from time to time, returned to the
penitentiary broken down and unfit
for further work. A correspondent
of the Charleston News and Courier,
writing from Columbia the 27th ul
timo, gives a startling account of
twenty-five convicts who had been
returned the day before to the pen
itentiary from the G. & A. R. R.
One had died on the way. He
could not find, he said, suitable
words to describe their miserable
condition. Some were blind, others
speechless, and all were helpless.
The greater portion of them would
never be able to do any more work
for the State, and were only food
for the grave. No blame attaches
to the Superintendent. His duty
is, under the Acts of the Legisla
ture, to hire out the convicts. It
looks now that the law authorizing
the hiring out of convicts is un.
wise; but we should not be too
ready to blame the law. There is
no reason why im.proper treatment
of them should not be punished
and prevented. The Legislature,
at its next session, will be called
upon to investigate this matter
thoroughly: circumstances demand
An overweening sympathy for
criminals is not to be encouraged ;
it is right and proper that violators
of the law should be punished: that
convicts should be made to work
but they should be treated as hu
Judge Thomson adjourned Court
at Laurens Friday, 2.5th ult., over
to the following Tuesday, and went
to Abbeville, to spend Sunday at
home. While there he was taken
sick. He passed through Newber

and occupied Saturday in attending
to motions, orders, &c. Monday
he passed through town again on
his way to Union, where he is now

criminal business, principally the
longo murder trials, very little was
done in civil business. We under
stand, from the Laurensville Her

Reidville (N. O.) Times:- It was
told in Milton concerning the re
cent death of a citizen of Danville,
Va., that in turning him over to
shroud him, the words "0 God !"I
escaped his lips. It was accounted
for that when he died those words
were left in him unuttered by his
last breath, and in handling his
body they came out. Could such a
case ever have happened ? Can
there be such a theory ? We only
know that it is seriously talked of

The following Address of Mr.
Rimon President of the First Na
inail Bank of Charleston, taken
-om the proceedings of the Con
i-ention of the American Banker's
A.ssociation, held at Saratocra in
kugust last, will prove of general
nterest. in view of the restrictions
aow resting on National Banks:
Mr. -President and Gentlenen of the
i respectfully ask this Convention
to aid the movement already inaugiu
rated by the iutroduction of " bill in
the House of Representatives by the
Hon. M. P. O'Connor, of South Caro
ina, for a modification of the National
Bank Acts to the effect that a direct
authority be given to all N-itional
Banlks to make loans upon mortgages
f real estate. limiting such loans. if
you choose, to 20 or 25 per cent. of
their capital and surplus, with a pro
viso permitting the mortgagee to pay
taxes or insurance, or both ; such pay
ment to be reckoned as part of the
principal of such loans, and to bear
the sanne rate of interest. Such a
measure uy not scein necessary in
the great commercial and wanufac
turing centres of the East, where the
activity of business gives constant and
profitable ewployinent for the capital
of so large a proportion of the whole
number of National Banks.
In these localities the restriction we
seek to modify, doubtless occasions lit
tle inconvenience. But it is very
different in the agricultural States of
the South and West, where the wel.
fare of the banks and the people alike
imperatively demands the utilization
of real estate as a security for a safe
proportion of our loans. I know th:at
objections exist in the minds o sone
very able bankers to such loans. It
way be said that banks are, or ought
to be, created to facilitata comineroi-l
transactions. But in the South. I ,a
sure, and possibly in the West, the
banks are now confronted with tha
fact, that there is not enough commnjer
cial paper (paper based upon actual
transactions on existing values), offered
to make the volume of business that
will enable them to pay their expenses
and their enormous taxes, now that
the high rates of interest that pre
vailed a few years ago can no longer
be obtained. And let it be under
stood, that we favor cheap money as
well as cheap bread. And if the
great agrceultural interests of our
country will aid us in our efforts for a
reductIon of our onerons and unjust
taxation, we will give them the a.1
vantage of reduced rates of interest.
The interests of the borrowingz clas
are identical with our own--red ue
tions in our taxes mean redored rates
But while legitimate commercial
paper may be scarce with us, there is
a constant de:uaind for loans upon real
estate ; and our experienice has shown
a smaller pceentag. of losses on sneh
transactions than on] any' othericlass
of loans in the last twelve or fourteen
years. MIodify the restriction of the
exisiing law, :nd you at once opeu
to our banks a field for the safe and
profitable use of money, and, at the
samec time, you extend to the people
of the South and West the aid they
so much require for the3 development
of their great agricultural interests.

cash necessary to pay for labor and

WAsfrNTo, 1). C.,
Oct. 1, 18479.
Though the machine Republicans
of New York, who nominated Cornwil,
may have been promised a speech or
two from Secretary Evarts, it now
seems unlikely that that assistance
will be given them. The eminent
Secretary is a reformer, as is Secretary
Schurz. These two aentlenien were
given by Mr. [layes the job, in March,
1877, of rcforn;ing the civil servicc.
Secretary Schurz is outspoken in his
opposition to Cornell. So is George
William Curtis, the origiltal Republi
can reformer. So are most of the re
formers who, bfore they became re
formers. were not unscrupulous vete
ran politicians. As noted above. it is
extreiiy doubtful if the Secretary of
State w1il speak in New York. It
would hardly do, when the Democrats
of the State have just got rid of the
worst elements of their party for the
reform Republicans to help the tri
umpil of the worst elements of theirs.
It is a (reat mistake that our Dom
ocratic friends make, if they believe
there is enouzh "third term" in Gen.
Grant's receptions to do any harm.
The General has commauded larger
armies than any other wan living, and
was in command of all the U. S. troops
-say one arid a half millions-at the
close of the civil war. Without look
ing at the question of his ability as a
General, we know that he was a suc
cessful one, and successful Generals
always have received and always will
receive the applause of their country
ien no matter what the condition of
party politics way be. To connect
the receptions in California and the
eoming ones further East, with the
polities of the country in any way, or
to say that they mean a third term for
Grant, is to'say that the people think
as highly of his civil as of his military
career, and there could be no greater
absurdity than that.
The uitizens of Washington are for
the first time in their history attempt
'iug to inaugurate a series of animal
Fairs on a large scale. Suitable
grounds have been sdcured, and great
preparations are being made for the
first Fair which will be held this Fall.
But efforts will not cease with this
year. There will be continual ii
provenent, until all parts of the coun
try will become interested, and then,
with the liberality already displayed,
our unequaled climate, and the easy
access from all directions, we hope to
have annual exhibitions equalled by*
few and excelled by none.
It was stated in this correspondence
soon after the resignation of Mr.
Welsh, that the English Mission
would be tendered to Gen. Grant.
The statement then made came from
the White House. From the con
cluding -statement of the following
paragraph in the semi-official Evenig
Star of this city, it would seem that
Mr. Hayes has repented of his prom
ise, and wanted a pledge from the
General, in advance, that he will re
fuse the office. Here is what the
White House now says through the
Star : "There is a bit-of gossip afloat
to the efieet that President Hayes as
an honor to Gen. Grant has made up
his mind to formally tender tihe En
glish Mission to him, and pursuant to
that inclination the President will in
vite him to take the Mission upon his
return to Washington. The Presi
dent, according to the same authority,
does not anticipate that Gen. Grant
will accept the trust, but it will be
offered to him nevertheless as a mark
of honor both to Gen. Grant and the
English nation." DEM.

Laurensville Ilerald, 3d inst. r
Our citizens were considerably sur
prised and not a little indignant on
last Saturday mornig to learn that
McNinch and Blackwell had been sud
denly hustled off to the Penitentiary
the night previous. The prisoners
were carried away from this place
about 11 o'clock on Friday night, and
taken to Helena on the locomotive ten
der ; thence by private conveyance to
Prosperity, where the regular train on
the G. & C. Railroad was awaited, by r
which they were carried to Columbia y
What necessity existed for this
sudden and unseasonable departure,
and the subsequent action in pushing b
on to Prosperity the same night, our
citizens were at a loss to conjecture, r
aud felt incensed at what they re a
garded a reflection upon the peace and ,
order of the community,and the County s
at large. No people were ever more
quiet, under similar circumstances ,
than those of this community, from
the moment of the rendering of the i
verdict in the McNinch trial to the 3
very hour of the hurried departure of
said prisoners. That the verdict of j
the Jury in this case was a surprise if
not a shock to all, was plainly mani e
fest, and men's minds were freely
spoken in disapproval and condemna
tion of the same. The remark that c
"hanging has played out," and thatr
"there is no law against murder." &c., 1
became electrotyped, and was frequent- e
ly heard.. The same feeling was man.
ifest as to the verdict in the Black
well case ; but while this is true not i
the slightest hint, by word or action, a
was given, so far as we have been.
able to learn, (and we have taken 'i
some pains to ascertain,) that any vio- y
lence was intended. On the contrary
the friends and relatives of the de- il
ceased, while indignant and disgusted
at the verdict in both cases. preserved
commnendable forbearance and express- e
ed themselves as determined to let b
the law take its course, and abide the
result peaceably, although they felt
that the majesty of the law had 3
been trampled upon and the ends of
true justice defeated.
Mr. Fike, the Sheriff, informs us, f
however, that his actions were promp
ted and controlled by reliable'inform
ation-information he could not doubt t
-to the effect that a plan was on foot I
to rescue McNinch and Blackwell
from his custody, for the purpose of
committing violence upon them, and
we must do him the justice to say t
that we believe he acted in good faith, I
and thought he was acting for the
best-for all concerned-simply doing
his duty to the State, to himself and
to the prisoners. Hence, we hope
that public opinion, adverse to the
action of the Sheriff in the matter un
der consideration ,will be withheld until
the facts regarding his reasons for his
action in the premises are fully madef
We believe it is discretionary with
any officer having prisoners in cus
tody, especially if threats of violence f
reach himi, to take every reasonable I
prcaution for thcir protection and
safety, if indeed it is not obligatory 1
upon him to do so, but while this is b
true such officer should exercise the c
greatest caution lest his action cast C
unjust and unwarranted reflection up
on the peace and good order of' the "
community in which lie may reside- a
He should not be governed by expar
c rumors, information or counsel. In r
justice to all both sides should be
heard. Again, an overabundance of s
caution too frequently proves the sim
plest folly, while it works hardship a
and injustice. C
In justice to this cummunity, to a
the County at large, to himself and
especially to the friends of the de- a
ceased we think it behooves Sheriff b
Fike to make a full explauation of the e~
reasons which controlled his action o
in the matter under consideration, and
we have no doubt he will do so. 4
