Now that the strike is about end
ed. there is a general feeling of
regret that the victory was not with
the operators. This popular sym
pathy for them is not whimsical
founded on the bare prejudice sup
posed to exist against corporations,
nor on any spirit to elevate labor
over capital; but arises naturally
from the patent injustice of this
particular case, as shown by - the
facts. On the one side an excep
tionally intelligent, well-behaved,
hard-worked and illy-paid class of
employees. On the other a strong
combination of money whose -aim
seems to be, out of this flesh and
blood to derive as large dividends
and surplus capital as possible,
without paying the legitimate expenses
their creation, viz: an adequate
compensation for the human mater
ial so used.
The demand is, that before the
present enormous amounts are pass
ed to the dividend account or (for
ery employment) invested in extra
vagant property, there shall be de
ducted therefrom enough to fairly
compensate the intelligent skill and
patient labor 'used as the prime
factors in creating these amounts.
They will even then be left amply
large to pay legitimate and hand
some dividends and to make such
investments as will keep the com
pany safe and sound.
If the company does not in this
instance voluntarily make some
concessions to the operators, it will
be, but another case of the overpower
ing of the right by might; and the
operators- have only left for the time
the satisfaction of a battle well
fought for principle, and the hope
that somehow it 'will eventually
triumph; while now they furl their
flag amid the half-sneering, half~
pitying whispers: "a lost cause."
Whatever may be the different
opinions as to Senator Butler's
views on the road and labor ques
tions, all gratefully acknowledge
his efforts on these practical sub
jects. IEt wil! be a better day for
us when public men more generally
employ their time and talents less
in speechmaking on empty or dead
h. political questions and more in
studying and trying to solve such
-- economical, substantial questions
which everywhere in the State daily
confront even~ the humblest citizen.
one thing perhaps has made
C iken so strong in his Con
gressional District as his patient
and laborious efforts in establishing
convenient postoffices throughout
his territory. So no effort of Sena
tor Butler, not even his reply to the
Senator from Maine, is more highly
appreciated than that in behalf ot
better-roads in our State. He is
striking in the right direction; and
however, he may be in error, as
regards the regiedy or details sug
gested by him, he has achieved the
main object, viz: drawn attention
to and elicited criticism on the mat.
ter; which, we confidently expect,
will eventually result in an improve
ment of our roads, either under the
old system-probably amended, or
under some better system.
The Press and Baltner has, in its
last issue, some timely words on
the amenities of journalism. We
commend them to ourselves and
our brethren. It does strike us that
too many of the press take up time
and space in impugning the motives
of those who differ from them which
should be used in discussing the
merits of the issue-assuming that
all are honest in their convictions,
unless.dere be clear evidence to
the coligary.
Again we are, too much given to tak.
ing up whole columns in issue after
issue trying to vent some personal
spleen or gratify some personal
prejudice-it may be, concerning a
matter about which the public cares
as little as Jay Gould does about
the public.
The Kentucky election was held
on the 6th, and Proctor Knott,
a' Democrat, was elected. There was
much drunkenness and disorder in
Louisville, and ten prominent j'oli
ticians were arrested in one ward
for bribery. Two negroes were
killed, two were mortally wounded,
and three other-men, two %f them
white, were seriously injured.
ATLANTA, GA., August 11.-On
Tuesday morning last, in Miller
County, Joe Fulford, a farmer, with
the aid of Harry Bradley, a negro,
brutally murdered his wife, who at
the time was unable to turn herself
in bed. The negro beat her over
the head with a club until she was
insensible. Then her husband
choked the remaining spark of life
out. Fulford-then hired his accom
plice and another negro named
Reuben Robertson to haul the body
to Spring Creek, a mile and a half
away, and sink it in the deepest
part of the water. Fulford then
reported her absence, and sought
to create an impression that she
had committed suicide by drown
ing. The neighbors searched the
country all Tuesday evening and
night. On Wednesday the body
was found, having risen to the sur
face of the water, and marks were
found upon her body bearing out
the facts given above. Fulford
was arrested, but denied his guilt,
and remarked that he would not
have had his wife murdered for
five dollars. The two negroes
were then arrested on suspicion
from some language they were
heard to use, and they made a full
confession, giving the facts as re
cited. A Coroner's jury rendered a
verdict charging the three men with
the crime. A preliminary trial was
had at Colquitt yesterday, and they
were held for murder. There Was
talk of burning the trio af a stake in
the court house yard, but wiser
counsel prevailed. Between 10 and
12 o'clock last night, however, Ful
ford and Harry Brady were taken
from the* jail and hanged to a con
venient timber near the jail. Their
bodies were perforated with bullets.
Fulford's father is a man of con
siderable means, and is respected
by his neighbors. The general sen
titent of the country will approve
the act of "Judge Lynch," since
within two years two innocent wo
men have been murdered in the
same vicinity. In one case two of
the guilty parties escaped punish
ment by breaking jail and fleeing
the country.
The famous Kimball House, prob
ably the largest Hotel building in
the South, was totally consumed by
fire at 5 o'clock Sunday morning.
The value of the building and fur
niture was upwards of $500,000.
and the insurance only $80,000.
The building of the Gate City Na
tional Bank and the stores of sev
eral merchants were also consumed.
The total loss is said to approach
a million dollars-with only $200,.
000 insurance. In the vaults of
the bank were some $500,000. in
money and other valuables- These
are probably safe. The Hotel was
the joint property of Robt. Toombs,
John Rice and Joseph P. Thomp
son. Mr. Scoville, the proprietor
of the hotel, alone lost some $10,
000, his insurance being only $1.
The fire is thought by some to
have originated accidentally in the
barroom under the Hotel; by others
to have been of incendiary origin.
It was in all probability accidental.
'This beats Newberry as to the
extent of the fire but not as to in

Poaous PLaSTERS; their be-.i, powers are
wonderful and their efDacy far reaching and
lasting. For years past I have seen and
known them to cre and relieve the most
obstinate and distressing cases of rheam
atism, kidney complaint, bronchitis, neural
gia, lumbago, Inflammation of the lungs and
throat, paralysis, asthma, spinal weakness,
and coughs and colds. In my own case
they have afforded me almost instant and
permanent relief. My friends consider them
an Invaluable and speedy remedy for all
kinds of aches and pains. They are a bless
ing in disguise; and no wife or mother
should be without them if she values her
peace and comfort and freedom from nerv
ous exhaustion and other ailments. As a
strengthening plaster, also for backaches
and weaknesses, they have no equal. I have
never yet found a plaster so efficacious and
stimulating, or to give so much geperal sati?
faction. Used in connection with BiAND

Pr,s, no one need despair of a speedy re
storation to good sound health.
If you have been using other Plasters one

other so called porous plasters that claim to
be better, they are all frauds gotten up to
sell on the world-wide reputation of the

MESSRS. EDITORS:-MajorJuo. P. Kinard,
from your place, gave to the -guests of this
place and people of the vicinity-numbering
in all about 200 or more, a remar' ,ble and
novel entertainment of his own genting up.
The Hall in the hotel was completely crowd
ed by an attentive and appreciative audience.
The Major seems to have a fine talent as a
theatrical manager, and his corps of actors
was well managed. His principal one was
what he styles his human African mocking
bird in the person of a colored man, who
whistles and sings comic songs in a peculiar
and original style. There was also
some fine dancing on the old time darkey,
double shuffle order, which brought down
the house and was loudly applauded. After
the Major closed and returned his thanks, he
was congratulated by ali and requested to
again get up something for ti a amusement
of the guests and he Intends to do so very
soon. When he returns to Newberry he
Intends taking his corps with him and ex
hibiting there, and also his theatrical talent.
Altho' there Is quite a crowd here, there is
room enough for more, and all will find who
come here, the healthful influence of the
Glenn's Spring water, and will be looked
after and provided for by the Messrs. Simpson
who, altho' not possessed of the hypocritical
urbanity and deceitful toadyism of the hotel
keeper of the age, are possessed of that
quality more excellent and reliable. noazar
and TRUTH. There has'not been (tho' many
good effects or the water and climate are
noted) any existence of so sudden a cure and
restoration to health as was effected by the
Major upon the editor of the NawEaBY
HERaa, who you knew was suddenly and
completely 'renovated and toned up by the
Mayor's shower bath, and left for home on
the following day. We hope his restoration
was permanent as hehas not returned. Many
of the prominent men, both politically and
socially, are in attendance here, and Glenn's
is now not only a pleasant place for the
health -seeker but also the pleasure seeker.
Trust we will see you here again soon.
.Aes8rs. Editors:-Is it correct to say:
"Where are the sli7ot and powder?" or
"Where is the shot and powdler ?"
Please answer through your paper,
and g'ive the reason for your opinion.
"Where is the powder aud shot ?" is
in our opinion correct, and, to say the
least, the better expression;, for the
same reason that we say: "Where is
the bread and butter?" and not
"Where are the bread and butter." To
our cars the singular of the verb is
certainly the more natural; for both of
these questions were often on our
tongue in boyish life and wve can't re
call ever asking: "W~here are the bread
and butter." "Where are the shot and
powder?"; but remember always bawl
ing out "Where is the bread and but
ter." "Where is the shot and powder."
You see therefore how natural it is
for us to embrace that side of the
question; we have, however, -called on
the grammarians for authority support
ing our position, and are gratified to
find that they uphold the language of
the average boy in this instance.
Reed & Kellogg's "Higher Lessons in
English," page 227, lays down the
recognized general rule as follows:
"When a verb has two or more sub
jects connected by and it must agree
with them iii the plural."
He then enumerates the exceptions
to this rule; two of which only we nteed
"Exception 5. When several sub
jects follow the verb each subject may
be emphaxsized by making the verb
agree with that which stands nearest.
as, Thine is the kingdom and the
power and the glory." Our case does
not, however, in our opinion, fall un
der this exception; for in the sentence
there are not several subjects following
the verb; nor is either of the two that
do follow it intended to be emphasized.
We quote this exception simply to show
that the general rule is by no means
"Exception 1. When the connected
subjects * * * name several
things taken as a whole. the verb must
be in the singular, as, Bread and milk
is excellent."
The same idea Is' expressed by Mr.
Holmes, on page 171 of his grammar, as
follows: "But, if the nominatives form
a single though compound conception
the verb is put in the singular; as,
Bread and butter is very good diet."
Under this exception falls our cas9e.
In speaking of shot and powder we
have in mind "a single conception"
ammunition-compounded of "shot
and powder." These articles named
are "taken as a whole." Shot and pow
der isto the gun, what bread and butter
is to the boy-its motive power-its diet.
