Everybody should attend tho mass mooting at

High Freight Rates.
Opposition to monopolios is tho rallying
cry throughout tho land. It has boen n war
of words in South Carolina, if wo excopt tho
eervicos of Con. Bonham, our Railroad Com
missioner, in this direction. Under tho law
as it exists ho is not ablo to accomplish very
much, and wo do not oxpoot much relief in
this direction until wo aro ablo, as they aro
in Georgia, to regulato by law passenger and
freight rates. Wo aro mo 7ed to look in this
I direction by the announoomont that tho pool
managers of tho Southern railroads and
steamship linos bavo advanced tho freight
ratos North Btifly on ootton and other products
of tho soil. No sooner is this announcement
made than wo havo another that froight rates
on tho railroads in South Carolina havo beon
moved up from tou to twenty por cent. Tho
reason given for those increased rates io novol
to US. Tho statement is made that fine crops
will bo made and that tho (armors caa afford
to pay something moro for their transporta
tion to market. Is this just and righi? It
implies that heretofore tho rates charged by
these roads havo boon too low. Wo do not 1
think this has boon tho case. Tho railroads
do not and havo not worked for nothing.
Tho charge has been mndo that thoir rates
for passengers and freight have beon too high,
and to ndvnnoo theso rates now is to bring
this question of transportation squaroly bo?
fore tho pooplo for their action.
Wo aro not unfriendly to tho railroads. On
tho contrary, wo aro tho friends of these
properties. Wo havo always advocated thoir
construction and comfortable equipment, and
those who who put thoir money in theso c?
pricos should bo reasonably rowardod. Tho
intorost of tho capitalist and tho producer
ought to bo aliko protected by the law. This
is not only possible, but is ontircly practica
ble and right. But a hotter argumout for
increased froight ratos should bo given than
that large crops will be mado, and thoroforo
tho farmer, tho produoor of those articles,
can afford to pay theso higher ratos. This is
no argument nt all. On the contrary, if tho
crops aro largo enough to koop tho roads
and ships full and busy all tho timo, (hoy can
a ll o rd to carry tho products of tho soil to
market cheaper than they onn a small crop.
In our judgment tho question should ontor
into the present canvass in tho State. Thon
whoo it is understood nod passed on by tho
pooplo tho Legislature will bc able to dispose
of tho question, not only with ontiro justice
to tho railroads, but to tho pcoplo os wolh
The rights of property aro tender and should
not bo disturbed without cause. But tho
rights of tho pooplc aro higher still, and
should bo protooted by tho laws of tho land.
Thoro is nnothor causo for npprohonsion.
Tho railroads in South Carolina aro controlled
by a fow persons. Thoro is no competition
and tho ratos of froight havo hoon steadily
advanced since Ibo roads havo fallon under
tho prosont control. It is important, thoro
foro, that in tho prosont canvass this ques
tion shall bo fully discussed and tho Legis
lature apply tho corrective-justice to tho
railroads and protection to tho pooplo.

We then reached the bountiful Chattuga

fourths of a mile to Russell's spring, whoro
wo partook of somo of as cold aud puro

I don't think ho used it as a soat, judging
from tho timo it took him to get up. Ho
then tried to light tho dinner boll for tho

Norton's store brought us faco to faco with u
mountain of gradual ascent for fully two
miles, at tho top of which wo found n board
nailed to a tree and marked "tho top."
"Thank tho Lord" was heartily responded to
by our party when wo roached this point. Wo
then passed on and at noon wo lunched near

Tho war in Egypt has commenced in

Chief of tho English forces, has by a finely

LONDON, August 25.-Oon. Sir Gornot
Wolecloy in his dispatch to tho war ofiieo
recounts tho engagements nt Magafar on
Thursday, in whioh ho held his ground
tho whole day against 10,000 Egyptians.
His forces numbered about 2,000. In his
details Gen. Wolseley said: I advanced
this morning boforo daybroak with tho
Household Cavalry, two horse-artillery guns,
thirty mounted infantry, one thousand mon
from tho York and Lancaster regiment of
marine.'). After some skirmishing I took
possession of tho dam whioh tho cmcmy had
constructed across tho conni between the
villages of Mngafar and Mahuta. Dur?
ing this operation two squadrons of House
hold Cavalry charged tho enemy's infantry
vory gallantly. I soon found that tho oncmy
woro hoing largely roinforood from ToUol
Kcbit. 1 could seo trains arriving. I thought
it inconsistant with our traditions for tho
Queen's army to retiro beforo any number of
Egyptian troops and so decided to hold tho
ground until reinforce,monts nrrivid. All
day long I havo had an Egyptian foreo of 10,
000 mon with ton guns in my front and on my
right flank. Tho precision of tho onomy's
artillery was vory good, but fortunately they
fired eommon sholl nonrly all day, and whon
they did lire shrapnel thoir fuses woro badly
adjusted. Tho enemy had their cavalry
rogimont in lino. Tho two horso artillery
guns woro served with pluok and ability.
Our casualties havo boon slight.

Following up his odvantogo ho took posser?
sion of a look on the frosh wator canal whioh

dosort to tho cultivated lands of the Dolta.
LONDON, August 27.-A dispatch to tho
Daily News from Ismailia says: Only six
doad Arabs wore found on tho Hold of battle,
but inside Ramses woro found soveral small
pyramids of stones freshly oreotod, boneath
which dead natives were probably buried.
Although tho ongagemont WAS not sorloue so
far as hard fighting is concernod, tho soldiers
neted splendidly. Tho difficulties of tho
ground were fearful, whilo tho beat of the
BUD defies exaggeration. Oen, Wol.ioloy'o ob*
joot han boon aohioved. and wo have gained
so much more frosh water, for tho canal has
boon carefully dammed at Raineos. Wo lost
a good many horses and mulos, and the re*,

days' rest. Tho railway has beon repaired
as for as Ramses. The native cavalry havo

LONDON, August 27.-A din patch to Rou*

plo says; Said Pasha wont to Thorapia on
?Sunday oven in g and informed Lord Dufferin
that tho Turkish Council of Minis tors bad

At ubi Paella, and to acopt a military conven
tion with England, conformably to Lord
Tho Charleston News and Courier, writing
in refcroneo to tho war, says:
Roughly speaking, tho operations of tho
English and Arabi Boy aro confined lo a
quadrilateral bounded by tho Mediterranean
on ihJ?North, tho Suez Canal on the East,
tho . Nllo on tho Weet nnd tho Arabian
Desiri on tho South. Tho English hold
Alexandria, Port Said and tho whole lino of
the Suez Canal, giving them tho Mediterra
nean and tho Suez Canal as tho bases for
their operations. They havo tho N orth and
East sides of the quadrilateral. Tho principal
forces of Arabi Bey oro in tho neighborhood
of Alexandria and Cairo, and botweon Znga
zig and Ismailia. Zagazig is Southeast of
Alexandria, and Cairo is dirootly South of
Zagazig. Arabi has tho Wost sido of tho
quadrilateral, with spurs nt Zagazig and be
tween that point and Cairo. The South side
of tho quadrilateral, has Suez and Cairo
at tho angles, and is unoccupied. The Eng
lish nro ?forco in ot Ismailia on tho Canal.
Ismailia is directly East of Zagazig. Tho
English aro in forco likowiso nt Suez, which
is directly East of Cairo. From Suez thoro
is a disused railway to Cairo. This is hoing
rebuilt. From Ismailia thcro is a railway to
Zagazig. It is presumed that Sir Garnet
Wolsoly intends to push forward one column
from Ismailia and a second column, consist?
ing of Indian troops, from Suez, so menacing
simultaneously tho whole flank and rear of
Arubt Bey's polution. To hold his own
against tho English, Arabi will necessarily
concentrate his troops. If he concentrate at
Cairo by foiling from Alexandrin and Zugo*
zig, the whole of tho Delta of tho Nilo will
bo loft free, and tho English troops can eloso
in upon him in overwhelming forco. If ho
abandon Cairo, the Indian troops, marching
from Suez, will bo in his rear, whilo ho will
havo tho wholo of tho Icmailin column on
his flank, and tho fleet and tho Alexandria
garrison in front. Tho savage Arabi will
find, himself in a very awkward position.
Tho Demooralio Clubs of tho county can add
much to tho interest of tho mass meeting on
Friday by attending ns organizations in full
