The curse of American politics
is availability, or, more properly,
that which subordinates capability
and integrity to mere availability.
TheLtwo great political parties of
the country are nerving themselves
for the approaching presidential
canvass, and are scanning their
ranks with great scrutiny and not a
little concern, in the attempt to
find available candidates for presi
dential honors. Men there are, not
a fw, who are ready to assume the
grave responsibilities of the chief
magistracy of the country, but who
are under the curse of un-availabili
ty. The judgment of fifty millions
of freemen, unclouded by party
spirit or partisan prejudice, would
not long be at fault in selecting a
candidate worthy to wear the zwn
ors and discharge the high duties
of the presidency. But the coun
try is rent by factions, and party
politics hoids the lash over the
backs of the people, ready to
scourge them into obedience should
they chafe beneath the yoke of
party tactics.
It has been regarded as note
worthy by foreign students of our
political institutions, that the states
men of our country who bear the
stamp of personal integrity and are
endowed with a high degree of wis
dom and political foresight, are not
the men who are called to the pres
idency, Calhoun, Clay and Web
sterin their day, and Blaine, Bayard,
and Conkling in ours, have gazed
wistfully upon that high eminence
always reserved for men less able
and less deserving than themselves.
The men who have shaped the leg
t islation and nfoulded the destinies
'~ of the country are not available.
It has been so almost from the days'
of his Excellency, George Washing
ton down to the reign of his Acci
dency Chester Arthur; and the rea
son is simple enough. The strong,
positive aggressive characters make
> enemies-they serve the country
and make records-they open their
mouths and, :as the phrase goes,
"put their feet in them"; they are
not available.
Each political party is looking
for a "light-weight champion" who
has no "surplus" record to carry in
the race, but who is backed by a
heavy electoral vote; the first, and
the last, question always-Is he
available? Other questions which
serve to test the availability of any
*proposed candidate are these-Is
his record right on the tariff ques
tion? Is he able to carry New
York, the pivotal State ?
So the matter goes, and the pres
ident of the country is a creature of~
expediency-a man bearing the
* stamp of availability. We long to
see the day, which we dare not hope
to see, when the president of the
United States will owe his election
to the fact that he is a manly man
conspicuous for ability and integri
ty, a man who, in the serv~ice of his
country, can look the devil and the'
politicians squarely in the eye with
out blinking.
W. B. Cash, son of Col. E. B. C.
Duelist Cash, is not disposed to let
the public lose sight of him. Last
Saturday he invaded .the town of
Cheraw, and without any reasona
ble provocation fired three shots at
the town marshal, one shot passing
through the lungs of a by-stander,
and one taking effect in the lungs of
the marshal. Both wounds were
serious. A warrant was issued for
the arrest of Cash, but it was inti
mated to the Sheriff by Col. E. B.
.C. Cash, that his son would evade
iinmediate arrest, as he judged that
public opinion was too strong
against him to warrant his surren
der. We take it for granted that
Cash will not escape the penalty
prescribed by the law for his crime,
and we trust that the indignation
of the people will remain at fever
heat ntil his arrest, so that public
opinion will at any time make it
personally unsafe for him to surren
der. The Cashes are not ordinary
offenders, tho' they seem to have en
joyed extraordinary Immunity

For several weeks the County
Commissioners have called the at
tention of landowners to the law re
quiring them to remove from the
running streams on their lands
"all trash, trees, rafts and timber
during the months of March and
September in each year." This is
by no means a new law, though the
fact that it has never been enforced
may make[it appear so to the "land
owners," and the effort of the Coun
ty Commissioners to have it ex
ecuted is praiseworty.
The channels of. our running
streams should not be so choked
with brush and trees as to impede
the flow of the water, and it is im
portant that the timbers and trash
already accumulated in them should
be removed. But the law says "in
March and September." In March!
Ugh! The very thought of wading
in Duncan's Creek, which needs
especial attention, in March, pro
duces a chilly sensation. Its wa
ters do not get warm enough for
the seiners, till late in the summer,
and any law that requires laborers
to remove the rafts of brush and
timber from it in the month of
March, is simply preposterous.

"The party who was killed in a
private row at the Vaudeville Thea
tre last night during the perfor
mance has been identified as Warren
Davis, alias James W. Walker of
Newberry, S. C. The verdict of
the jury pronounced it a case of
suicide. The deceased was about
twenty-two years old. Some time
ago he left Georgia having had
trouble with some negroes, with
serious results to the latter. He
went to Hendersonville, N. C.,
where he found employment as an
engineer, and again got into trou
ble, from which he escaped byjump
ing on a locomotive which he
abandoned after running it several
miles. Returning to South Caro
lina, he obtained means from his
family and came to San Antonio.
He anticipated arrest and was con
tinually on the alert. While in the
Vaudeville last night he learned
that Detective Hughes was in the
building for some one, and went
into the private box and remained
there until the curtain was about
falling on the last act. During the
day he informed one of the fe
male attaches of the theatre, with
whom he was familiar, and vowed
he would kill himself before he
would be taken if an attempt was
made to arrest him, The presump
tion is that the deceased concluded
that the detective was after him,
and seeing no way of escape, as
the performance neared its close,
put his purpose into execution.
There was no one in the box but
himself when the report of the pis
tol was heard."

To the Readers of the Herald.
This is election year. Already
the busy candidate has begun his
hand-shaking-his extra politeness
-his scheming-his wire pulling
cajoling and his taffy-has donned
his stale, chronic smile. May we
hope for any, amendment either in
the selection of candidates or in
the conduct of the campaign and
electig"ns, or in the final service ?
Alas T that this should be an open
Now this is a Republican Gov
emnment, the people are supreme,
and it is through the ballot-box,
and through the ballot-box alone,
that they can be heard, and make
their power felt. If they fail to ex
ercise interest and discretion there,
their hands are tied and their voices
hushed, and there is nothing left
them but to go around and grum
ble, all of which amounts to noth
ing ot course.
The men are in office by our
suffrage. We have voted for one
man because we liked him person
ally, he is a whole souled jovial
fellow; we have not enquired, even if
he is at all qualified for the position,
much less if he is the very best
man available. We were under
some obligation to another, noth
ing more or less-we voted for
another because he was a lawyer
we voted for another because he
was not a lawyer. And I could go
on and fill the whole side of this
paper with such examples with our
simple, childish whims. In our
every day, home affairs we are not
governed by such caprices. If we
want a very particular work -done,
we do not go to some one who has
nothing to recommend him but our
individual liking for him, because
he is simply this or that, or is not
this or that; but we employ the one
who is best qualified to do what we
want done.
It is a matter of very great im
portance that we have good laws
enacted by our Legislature; and
that we have faithful, competent
officers to execute them. Then by
all means let's select the very best
men we can get, not simply the
best man who solicits the place,
but the best man available. But
one asks: How are we determine
who is the best man for a partiou
lar place? I answer that we can
not always do so, but very certain
ly, when we have tried a man and
he fails to develope the requisite
qualification we can drop him. Al
though what is a much better thing
to do, is to qualify ourselves for
judging of such matters.
Very truly we can not recall
the misspent hour of our boy
hood days, but we can take, and
read, the newspapers, and keep
posted on the current news of the
day, think over well, what we read,
and st6idy its bearings. Watch the
doings and sayings of our public
men, and learn to look beneathL the
When we were under the Radical
yoke, we had to resort to question
able methods and trust questionable
men to get from under it; but now
we are out of the woods, and we
want good, clean work done.
The Constitution needs altera

ning, (we have had enough childs
play and blundering.) We must
have skilled workmen if it is to be
well done.

per says that the colored people are
full of enthusiasm as to their edu
cational progress. It seems that
they esteem their present teacher.
If they had had but the two teach
ers at Tranquil who performed
their duties, I-hope that the present
teacher will try to cultivate the
minds of their pupils and teach
them to consider that this country
is their home. Of course they are
naturalized here, and have lived
here so long, and have raised their
children, sand were enfranchised
here, and are parallel with the su

them more about Texas and Ar

States. Teach them to love their
country, and don't let any and
every man come out here from un
known parts and take them off. I
hope that education will be a great
speciality among the colored people.

dan, and its Future," by Sir Samuel
Baker; and "A Visit to Philistia," by
Sir Lepel Griffin. There is another
instalment of Ivan Turgenieff's prose
poems, "Senilia" which will be read
with great interest. A very remarkable
short story is "Old Lady Mary," from
Btacwood's, by Mrs. Oliphant, one of
the most original and uniqne ghost
stories ever written. A very vivid pic
ture of mediaeval Italian life is given
in "A Florentine Tradesman's Diary,"

number. Other *triking papers are:
"Earthquake Weather," "Tragedy in
Japan," "Personal Recollections of
Gambetta," "Scraps from the Chron
icles of Venice," and "Old and New
Cynics." The poems are from Swin
burne, Tennyson, and Browning.
The magazine, in its entirety, is of
great interest, and contains more va
riety than usual in spite of several
lengthy papers.
