? Hogs sent to the market from California J
have to be trapped in the woods in about (
the same manner as bears. On most of the j
ranches, it is said, the swine are as wild as ,
deer through the woods, and if cornered
they will place themselves on the defensive (
and fight like tigers.
? Senator Hill, of Colorado, has introduced
a bili to require that a government building
shall be constructed in every town and city
in the Union in which the postmaster draws
a salary of $1,000 and over. He says this
policy would save the government $1,000,000
per year in rent.
? The intense cold, which has driven everybody
to his fireside in all parts of the
country north of Florida, has made the Kenv
t* j. at
neDec river a scene 01 great, acuviiy. iut-u
are gathering with teams and machinery to
cut out the annual crop. The ice houses
have a capacity for one million tons, and
to fill them will require three thousand laborers
and eight hundred horses.
? A Maine man bought his daughter a melodeon
recently. Because she could not learn
to play well in a week he swapped the in- ?
strument for a cow, but the latter not giving
milk enough to suit him lie killed it for
beef. The beef Was kept too long before (
he got a customer to suit nim and has spoil- J
ed on his hands. It isn't safe to mention t
"raelodeon" to him. (
? Returns to R. G. Dun & Co.'s Mercan- 1
tile Agency indicate that the business fail- |
ures for the week ending last Friday in the (
United States numbered 303, and in Canada
and the Provinces30, or a total of 333against |
348 the previous week. The failures are oc- 1
curring mostly among the Western and l
Southern States, but an increase over the i
average is noted in the New England States (
and in New York City. ,
? The construction of new railroads in the .
United States during the year 1883 was less J
than 60 per cent, of the new mileage of {
1882?only 6,<500 miles having been built, t
against 11,f)91 miles for the previous year, 1
0,789 miles in 1881, and 7,174 miles in 1880. 1
In only one year, however, was the mileage .
larger?in 1871, when 7,379 miles were constructed.
There are now about 120,000 miles
of railroad in operation in the country, (
of which one-half has been constructed since s
1871. i
?Mr. McCoicl, of iowa, will press nis
Presidential succession bill in the House
this session. It provides, in case of the
death of the President and Vice-President,
that the duties of the office shall temporarily
devolve on the Secretary of State, until
the Electoral College, which is to have a four
years' existence, can assemble and elect a
new President. The suggested method of
filling a possible vacancy has at least the
merit of relegating the succession to the
body which elected the President, whose
successor is to be determined.
? The Legislature of Ohio has elected the
Hon. H. B. Payne to the United States Senate,
and issued an order of retirement to
Senator George H. Pendleton. The defeat
of Senator Pendleton, under the circumstances,
is to be regretted, although nothing
damaging can be urged against his successful
rival, either on the score of ability
or personal integrity. Pendleton was the
father of the civil service measure of the
last Congress, and this doubtless had much
to do with nis recent defeat. The Ohio
Democrats seem to be unfriendly to civil
reform.
? So far this season 3,301 bills have been
introduced in the house of Representatives.
Of each bill 750 copies are printed, costing
five dollars. Over sixteen thousand dollars
have thus been expended in the mere matter
of printing. Experience shows that only
about one out of every hundred bills gets
through, and computing on that basis, it
will be seen that of the sixteen thousand
dollars, considerably over thirteen thousand

twenty three-thousand bills which will nev- <
er pass, and whose only use will be as waste i
paper to some junk dealer. 1
? Reports from Florida agree that the se- *
vere cold weather of last week damaged the j
orange trees somewhat, but none were kill- '
ed. Tender shoots have been nipped, which
will shorten the bloom on the trees for the 1
coming crop. The fruit on the trees has 1
been badly damaged in the northern part of
the State, oluavas and bananas have been
killed in the greater part of the State. On
the whole the damage is not so great as was
at first feared. The weather has moderated't
and the danger is apparently over. It will j
take some days of sunny weather, however,
to tell how badly the orange trees are
damaged at the roots. ?
? The latest advices from Belleville, 111., (
relative to the burning of the Catholic con- 1
vent there, say that two more bodies were
found on Wednesday, neither of which i
have been identified. The report made c
by the surviving Sisters, which is accepted (
by the coroner as authentic, is as follows: I
There were sixty-three persons in the con- 1
vent at the time of the fire. Of these, j
twenty-six were Sisters, twenty-two of t
whom were saved. There were thirty-two c
boarding pupils, ten of whom were saved, r
and five candidates, all saved. Total? I
thirty-seven saved, twenty-six lost. The i
bodies of those who could not be identified i
were all buried in the same coffin. c
? Major John W. Daniel, author of the r
platform on which the Democrats made t
their successful fight in the recent Virginia election,
has written a letter to the editor 1
of a paper in Southwestern Virginia, in I
which he says he has "no doubt every prin- i
ciple enunciated in the platform will be car- e
ried out in letter and spirit, that the dead t
issues of past canvasses will be buried, and i
the living issues of to-day carried to the s
front." .Major Daniel expresses regret tnat 1
anybody got hurt in the Danville affair, but 1
lie declares that "the sooner everybody un- l
derstands that the white people of Virginia c
do not intend to submit to plunder, outrage f
and insult, the better it will be for all eon- 1
cerned." t
? The prohibitionists of this country claim *
that the outlook is favorable in many States 1
for the adoption of constitutional amend- *
meats prohibiting the manufacture and '
sale of alcoholic beverages. The constitu- *
tional movement has been agitated in twen- i
ty-one States. In Kansas it has been con- 1
summated; Iowa passed it through two c
Legislatures and ratified it by ,'10,000 ma- s
iority, but the amendment was killed by its *
clerical errors. Maine has passed a coiisti- ?
tutional amendment through the Legisla- 1
ture and it wants a popular vote. In Ore- ^
gon one Legislature has acted favorably, c
and a second is to take action in the matter. 11
Ohio passed it through her Legislature and 1
lost it before the people. In Texas, West 1
Virginia, Nebraska, Michigan, Wisconsin 1
and Arkansas, it failed by only a few votes. ?

Louisville Post doses some allusions to the
functions of editorials in journals by saying:
"In Newark, for example, the Republican
journal clears annually $100,000. It is not j
because of its superior news-gathering, for
the New York papers reach Newark as soon
as they reach the upper part of New York. >
It is because the paper has identified itself:
with the interests of that city. It has j
fought battles for honesty, and stands as the |'
guardian of the public weal, ever ready with
advice and ever helpful in explanation and
encouragement. No, people will not read
long editorials if they are about nothing and i 1
in themselves nothing ; but let them be in >4
themselves news?news in every paragraph, ; <
news in hope, news in enthusiasm, news in t
sincerity, news in wisdom, news in the very ; rj
turn of the expressions?but some great i .
question, of importance locally or nationally,
and then see if the public will not turn j
instinctively to see what the editor?if he be s
a man equal to his place?may have to say. 1
? While the South is complaining of too (
much cotton and the press is advising a re- duction
in its acreage, the great Southern
staple is invading new territory. The cot- 4
ton country has extended greatly since the 1
war, and States like Virginia and [Missouri 1
which knew nothing whatever of cotton 1
twenty years ago, have lately produced {
large quantities of it. The plant seems to t
be traveling North and West, and we now '
hear of it under cultivation in California and
in Kansas. In the Sacramento Valley of (
the Pacific coast, whose climate isverv sim- .
ilar to that of the Southern States, it thrives i
and yields well. The Kansas experiment (
is even more recent, and dates from the j
large exodus of negroes into the State. According
t-o the Kansas City Times the exper- (
iment has boen a success. Cotton gins have '
been established at various points in the .*
date and have plenty of material to work
>n. As for the yield per acre it is very satsfactory
; and it is now considered as dernjnstrated
that cotton cultivation can be carded
on profitably in Kansas ; and it is prelicted
that it will soon become an important
industry there.

THURSDAY MORNING, JAN. 17, 1884.
THE TEXAS FENCE TROUBLES.
The question offence" or "no fence" has
issumed formidable proportions in the State
)f Texas, where cattle grazing forms the
jhief occupation of a large class of people.
In consequence of the troubles incident to
his question, the Legislature convened in
?xtra session on the 8th instant. The (loverlor's
message was principally devoted to
:he fence war, as remedies for which he rejommends
legislation to prevent the use of
public lands unless by contract with the
state, a liberal system of highways, that a
penalty be imposed against surrounding the
esidence or land of another, the creation of
jourts in unorganized counties, that ience
jutting be made a penitentiary offence, that
prosecutions against fence cutters be removible
to any locality the .State chooses, and
he repeal of the limitation laws, so far as
fence cutting or the illegal use 01 puonc
ands is concerned. The Governor comjlains
of his almost entire lack of power
mder the constitution to cause the law to be
ixecuted. Among other subjects for consideration,
besides the fence war, are the
aising of a revenue to support free schools
md the reduction of taxation. The Stocknen's
Association met on the same day at
jalveston, and discussed the fence-cutting
rouble. The predominating sentiment of
:he convention is that something must be
lone instanter, but further than this all are
it sea. South Texas favors a herd law,
Southwest Texas wants protection for vestHi
rights at any cost, and will accept the
lerd law if necessary to secure protection.
North and Northwest Texas favor free grass
ind free range and will have nothing less.
The convention was unable to agree on any
line of policy.
On Saturday, the House special commit:ee
heard evidence as to lawlessness in Colenan
and Ituunels counties. In the former
;ounty every fence except que has been cut
iown, and that one is guarded day and
light by armed men. A number of houses
md many enclosed pastures had been burned.
It was shown that a great deal of land
fenced in wasnotowned by the owners of the
fences. Out of 140 men giving in 50 head ;
md over of cattle, each for taxes, 27 owned
and enough for grazing their cattle, 51
nvned no land, and 50 owned only land
jnough to live on. One man owning 2,000
lorses did not own a single acre, and one
nan owning 1,200 horses had only 2^ acres.
Forty-two thousand head of cattle are grazng
in the county, and the owners of nas;ures
are organizing into companies, as they
lespair of receiving protection from the
state.
On the same day, the Senate .Judiciary '
Committee reported, favorably, a bill makng
fence cutting a felony, punishable by
rom two to five years in the penitentiary, ,
md the killing of fence cutters, caught in
he act of applying wire cutting nippers, jusifiable
homicide.
The Senate also passed a bill that all the
jublic domain, except homestead to actual j
settlers, be donated to the public schools.
THE RECENT LEGISLATURE.
The Columbia correspondent of the Augusta
Chronicle and ibnst nationalist makes
lie following classification, from the records
n the Secretary of State's office, of the Acts '
>f the recent legislative session, which will
five some idea of the amount and character
>f business transacted by the General Assein>ly:
There were in all something over olio bills '
ntroduced, 280 of which passed, 284 be- .
wining laws and one being vetoed by the I
Governor. Charters were granted to 20 i
luilding and loan associations; 24 bills re- ;
ating to railroads and transportation comlanies
were passed; 22 acts of incorporations ,
if cities and towns and amendments to the 1
'barters of municipalities already incorporated,
were enacted; the same number of 1
lills (22) were passed relating to schools, <
olleges and School Commissioners; 14 bills j

n regard to duties of County Commission- ,
irs; $ relating to certain crimes; .'1 in relaion
to fences; 7 in regard to taxes; 3 relat- 1
ng to juries; two on each of the following !
objects: Authorizing County Treasurers to I
>uy all unexpended balances; artificial i
imbs, birds, canals, phosphates and phos- ,
)hate royalty, and stenographers for Judical
Circuits: and one bill on each of the
bllowing subjects was passed: Land Im- '

that the Legislature was only in 1

it least five days of the time of the House j

oad and new county bills, and that the
Senate was occupied fully three days on the

THE BAPTIST CHURCH.
The annual report of the Rev. Luther (
1 road us, Statistical Secretary of the Baptist
hate Convention, published in the Baptist ]
Iburier, gives some interesting figures con- i
lerning that denomination in this State. 1
Hie report shows that there were, in 1X8:1, J
29 associations, composed of 009 churches;1
> new churches were established; .3,070 persons
were baptized, 127 were restored to
nembership and 1,095 were received into the
'hurches by letter. The denomination lost

),.'147 Sunday School officers and teachers 1
md 27,918 pupils. The Baptists paid during '
he year for pastors' salaries 889,.'187; for for- j

>rgan of the denomination, is pne of the j (
jest religious papers published in the South, !
md is very liberally i>atroni/.ed.
CONGRESSIONAL PROCEEDINGS.
In the Senate, on the 9th, Senator Anthony
offered a resolution instructing the com- j
mittee on foreign relations to inquire into ,
the expediency of such legislation as shall
enable the executive department to protect j
our interests against governments which |
have prohibited, or restrained the importa- i
tion of healthful meats from the United j
States. By consent of Mr. Anthony the res- j
olution was deferred. Morgan offered the
following resolution, which was agreed to :
"Resolved that the Attorney General be instructed
to transmit to the Senate copies of
the reports with accompanying papers made
by the different examiners of the Department
of Justice, concerning the business of
the courts of the United States in Alabama,
Georgia, Arkansas and Texas, which reports
relate to abuses by officers of said courts and
marshals of said districts in charging, collecting
and accounting for of fees and other
abuses referred to in the report of Brewster
Cameron, the general agent of the Department
of Justice, made to said department
January 5th, 1SS4."
In the House, a warm and lengthy discussion
ensued on the question of referring a
special message of the President submitting
the annual report of the Mississippi River
commission. The question was whether it
should be submitted to the committee on
the Mississippi levees or the committee on
rivers and harbors. By a vote of 1411 to RM
it was referred to the last named committee.
In the Senate, on the 10th, Senator Dawes
introduced a bill to provide for the transmission
of correspondence by telegraph.
This bill provides for creating a United
States postal telegraph company, under direction
of the Postofflce Department, the
creation of the office of fourth assistant
Postmaster-General, this official to be president
of the board of directors of the company,
and for the establishment of private telegraph
offices at postoffices throughout the
United States and the transmission of correspondence
from such postal telegrapli offices.
Sawyer introduced a bill to prohibit the
mailing of newspapers containing lottery
advertisement Bills were introduced as
follows: By Morgan, granting the right of
way over the public lands in Alabama and
Florida to the Alabama Diagonal Railroad
on/1 o??tfinor ilnn oo mo /inmiianx* o

right to purchase public lands in said States,
also granting the right of way over the public
lands in Alabama and to grant lands in
said State in aid of the Gulf and Air Line
Railroad. Mr. Voorhees introduced a bill
to equalize the bounties of soldiers. This
bill, Voorhees said, is a copy of a bill which
was passed by Congress nine years ago, but
was vetoed by President Grant on the
ground that it would take more money out
of the Treasury than public interests would
warrant.. Rut there is so much now said
about the surplus revenue, and the abundance
of money, that he would re-introduce
the bill now and hoped it would meet
the consideration of the Military Committee.
After a short executive session, the
Senate adjourned.
In the House, Mr. Long, of Louisiana, introduced
a joint resolution for the immediofn
nt?ni*Ani?iofiAn r\f Ctl fUUl RDA in OAnnrflanAA
u IV/ Kii.iv/ij VI Vijv/vvjvvv ill uvwiuiiiivv
with the urgent request of the Mississippi
river commission for the preservation, repair
and construction of certain works for
the improvement of that river. Referred.
After the transaction of some further business
of no general importance, the House
adjourned until Monday.
In the Senate, on the 11th, Senator Van
Wyck, from the committee of the Mississippi
river, submitted a joint resolution appropriating
?1,000,000 to continue the improvements
already begun by the Mississippi
river improvement committee. After
some debate it was amended so as to give it
the form of a bill, which was read three
times and passed. Mr. McCall introduced
a bill to provide for a system of postal savings
banks in the United States. Mr. Ed- <
munds, a bill for the relief of the survivors :
of the exploring steamer Jeanmtte and the
widows and children of those who perished
in the retreat from the wreck of that vessel .
in the Arctic sea.
Mr. (Jullom addressed the Senate on the j
subject of his bill to re-organize the legisla- 1
tive power of Utah. It provides that the 1
imi>arnmont t\f I'tnli cViall nf !1 <rnv
ernor and a council of nine members, to be J
appointed by the President and confirmed
by the Senate, and they shall be citizens
and qualified voters of the Territory.
Brown followed Cullom in opposition to '
the bill. He did not propose, he said, to ;
discuss the social question dr the church ,
policy involved in the Mormon problem.
At a future time lie might do that, lie <
proposed now to speak of the question from i
the standpoint of the constitution, lie de- <
[dared all the recent legislation of Congress J
in connection with Utah affairs unconstitutional
and indefensible. When the matter
had been previously before the Senate he had 1
denounced the policy, and he would like to i
see something done to suppress it if it could
be done without a violation of the constitu- '
tion of the United States, which every sena- .
tor here had taken a solemn oath to support. (
Garland had always thought the Edmunds <
bi 11 for the Utah trouble very much like 1
prescribing a corn plaster for consumption, |
but he hoped the right remedy would be J
found. The Supreme Court had laid down
the doctrine that people could not shelter j
themselves from the consequences of crime 1
by pleading the requirements of religion. <
After an executive session the Senate ad- 1
journed until Monday. '
In the Senate, on the 14th a petition was j
presented by Vest, of Missouri, from tlie j
pork packers of St. Louis, praying for such i
retaliatory legislation as may protect them 1
from the exclusion of American pork from '
Germany and France. The petition says, "it j
is useless to appeal to those nations in any .
other way except by such legislation as will \
teach them to respect the rights of citizens I
of the United States." The election of Pros- 1
identpro fern, of the Senate was then pro- *
needed with, and Mr. Edmunds was re- j
elected. The oath of office was administered
by 31 r. Garland, of Arkansas, who
occupied the chair during the election pro- (
feedings. Senator Hill delivered a speech (
in support of the postal telegraph bill in- ,
troduced by him. Mr. McCa'll introduced a
bill to repeal all laws and parts of laws pro- t
hibiting pensions to wounded or disabled 1
soldiers of the United States, without proof ^
of loyalty.
In the House, under the call of States, a ,
large number of bills were introduced? r

MAKING TAX RETURNS. j
The following paragraph is going ti e j I
rounds of the State press, without credit. I?
It contains some important information in i 1
regard to the listing of taxable property un- i _
der the Act passed at the recent session of ']
the Legislature:
The act passed at the recent session of the ! i
Legislature changing the date for making i \
tax returns so that the Auditor can assess |
and the Treasurer collect at the same time, t
is likely to be misunderstood by taxpayers, j <
who will probably be under the impression i
that they will maketheir return of property f
for 1884 and pay the taxes thereon at the j
same time. A moment's reflection will t
convince them that this is erroneous. The (
taxes on the 1X84 returns will not be levied \
until after the next session of the Legisla-1
ture, ami of course the Treasurer can not re- 1
ceive the taxes until they have been levied. '
The two officers will go together and the 1
treasurer will collect the taxes on the returns i
made in 1883, while the Auditor receives the
returns for 1884. This plan possesses many
advantages for the tax payer. Among others
it will save him the loss of one day's
time and frequently a trip of from fifteen to
twenty miles to his court house. In our
present complicated system of collecting
taxes, it is almost impossible to prevent errors
on the tax books. The treasurer cannot
correct an error on his books because
they arc made up by the auditor and he alone
is authorized by law to make changes in
them under certain conditions, or to add
names thereto that have not been placed
upon the treasurer's books. Heretofore it
was necessary for the tax payer to go to his
court house for all such corrections ; now, as
the auditor will be with the treasurer, these
changes can be made without any delay.
All this, however, must be done when the
first installment of taxes is paid, as the auditor
will not be with the treasurer in the
county during the collection of the second
j iiMiiuim'iii.
THE SOUTH CAROLINA REPUBLICANS.
The Washington correspondent of the New
York Tribune telegraphs to that paper the
following in reference to the bone of contention
now dividing the happy family of
South Carolina Republicans.
A rather brisk contest is in progress over
the appointment of United States marshal
for South Carolina, which isof some interest
on account of its relations to politics in that
State. Congressman Mackey is trying to
secure the appointment of a man named
Livingston, who was formerly sheriff of
Orangeburg county. In this effort he has had
the aid of Collector Johnson and Postmaster
Taft, of Charleston. Mr. Livingston's competitor
is John Agnew, a prominent and
wealthy business man of Columbia. He is
a native of South Carolina, and his appointment
is urged by District-Attorney Melton,
Collector Drayton, ex-Congressman Smalls,
J. II. McLean, late Independent and Republican
candidate for Governor, W. It.
Marshall, of Charleston, and many other
Republicans and Independents.
It is asserted that ex-Congressman Lutterworth,
of Ohio, and District-Attorney
Speer, both of whom obtained a pretty clear
insight respecting South Carolina affairs
while engaged as special counsel in the election
cases, also favor the appointment of
Agnew. Some of the opponents of Congressman
Mackey declare positively that he
is trying to play the role of "Ross" in South
Carolina politics, and that his zeal in behalf
of the Republican party is measured exactly
by his desire to control official patronage in
that State. A prominent Independent asserts,
moreover, that in correspondence and
in conversations with South Carolina politicians
Col. Mackey has sought to convey
the impression that he is the President's
chosen representative in that State and that
lie intends to exert all his influence there to
secure an Arthur delegation to the National
Convention. These statements are denied
by Col. Mackey, but some influential Republicans
here are nevertheless inclined to
believe there is some foundation for them,
only so far, however, as he is concerned.
NORTH CAROLINA NEWS.
? Dr. J. M, Miller, dealer in groceries and
country produce in Charlotte, has failed. B.
R. Smith & Co., late of Charlotte, but more
recently doing business in New York, have
failed for $1 ">0,000.
? Capt. Chas. F. Harrison, Chief of Police
of Charlotte, has been suspended, the Commissioners
finding him to be too good a fellow
and too warm hearted for the position.
F. A. McNinch has been elected to succeed
him.
? Shelby Aurora: One of our promising
young men, Jasper Gardner, moved to Texas
three years ago and was doing a prosper
ous business in Paris, Texas. Three weeks
ago lie was severely wounded by a pistol in
the hands of a ruffian, the ball penetrating
his side. Pneumonia attacked, one week
afterward, the wounded man and'the struggle
for life and death began. On Sunday
he breathed his last and his body was sent
home. Many friends regret his untimely
death.
? One day last week a neatly dressed man
giving the name of J. G. Leak, succeeded
in swindling two Charlotte merchants with
forged checks, realizing about ?110, and
made good his escape before the swindle
was discovered. He has since telegraphed
from New York to one of his victims, saying:
"I will see you later in regard to that
check." This would seem to be adding insult
to injury, though the promise may yet
be verified, as the merchant is determined
to secure the forger's capture.
? The three men from Spartanburg county,
S. C., Burns, McCall and Parks, arrested
some weeks ago at King's Mountain for an
attempt to abduct the children of George K.
C'oolidge, and sent to Shelby jail in default
rjf bail, were brought before Judge Shipp,
in Charlotte, .011 Wednesday of last week, on
a writ of habeas corpus, and the Judge discharged
the prisoners on the ground of the
irregularity of the arrest. C'oolidge applied
for a bench warrant for the re-arrest of the
parties, and the judge issued the warrant,
but the men had taken leg-bail. They are
now being pursued by the sheriff and deputies,
with small hopes of re-arrest, as they
are old birds.
? Charlotte Observer: Mayor Damron, of
Shelby, met with a singular and terrific
mishap 011 the Air Line Road a few nights
ago, from the effects of which he has probably
not yet recovered. He was 011 the Charlotte
bound train, which was speeding along
at JO miles an hour near King's Mountain,
when he rose from his seat, walked down
the aisle, opened the door and stepped off
the platform. He did all this in his sleep.
The somnambulistic Mayor tore through a
brier thicket on his back and plowed up the
:>arth in a vigorous manner, but waked with
110 bones broken, though in a bruised and
lemoralized condition. The train was out
>f sight by the time he regained his feet and
lie tramped to a house about a mile and a
half distant, where he was taken care of during
the night.
? A Raleigh dispatch of Thursday says:
An entire family of negroes, Win. Croom
md his wife and six children, were burned
:o death Saturday night 011 the plantation
)f \\ . (i. Taylor, in Lenoir county. Unit
light the weather was the coldest it had
been for twenty years. It is supposed that
i large tire was made before the family reared,
and that the house caught tire from
the blazing brands rolling on the door. No
lews of the catastrophe reached the neighbors
until Sunday noon, when a visitor to
the place found nothing but the ashes of the
bouse and the charred remains of eight human
beings. The skeletons of the father
ind mother were found near together, with
that of an infant between them, where the
bed had stood. The skeleton of one child
was between this spot and the door, and
those of the others in their usual places of
rest. Jt is supposed that nearly all of them
lied from suffocation.
Tkmpkkaxck in tiu: Static.?At the
'lection in lily the wood, Fairfield county,
>11 the 8th instant, for Intondant and NVa'rlens,
the Prohibition ticket was elected
without opposition.
Speaking of last sales-day in Barnwell,
the Sentinel says: "The day was the coldest
we have experienced in this section for three
years, and visitors suffered terribly. There
was no liquor except that brought here from
remote parts of the county, in flasks, and in
:onsequence there was no drunkenness at all.
Hie town marshal's business (generally
fair on such occasions,) amounted to nothng,
as arrests for disorderly conduct wore
innecessary. No doubt a number of people
who have been in the habit of taking someliino*
to drink when visitino* horn missnd
he. "serpent" greatly, but who of us can
loubt that some lives have been saved by
the absence of whisky on this occasion."
The Pee Dee Index, printed at Marion,
jays, under the heading, "Results of no
license:"
1. Six days have elapsed since the barrooms
were closed, and not a man seen
inder the influence of whisky.
2. Mud, rain, sleet, ice, snow on Saturlay,
but not a man seen under the influence
>f liquor.
:f. One of the most influential and intelligent
men of the county told us during the
>ast week that he would now send his son
;o school here, but would not have thought
)f doing so before the bar-rooms were closed,
,'et this is "gag law."

Attention is directed to the announcement

in the grocery business, and occupying the
house formerly known as the York Drug
Store. Messrs. Caldwell & Dickson have a
nice stock of goods in their line, and the
way to test the truth of their assertion of
selling cheap is to call and ascertain their

"THE COMPLETE HOME."
We received a call from Rev W. G. Rollins
on Tuesday last. Mr. Rollins is in
Yorkville in,the interest of a book published
in Richmond, Va., by B. F. Johnson & Co.
The work is entitled the "Complete Home,"
and has the hearty endorsement of a number
of well known ministers, among whom
we notice the names of Rev. Moses Hoge,
of Richmond; Rev. l)r. Manly, of Furman
University; Rev. Dr. W. A. Nelson, of
Shelby; Rev. Dr. A. W. Miller, of Charlotte;
Rev. J. W. Tyler, of Augusta, Ga.;
and Itev. J. H. Thornwell, of Fort Mill.
The work is an Encyclopedia of domestic
life and affairs. The household in its foundation,
order, economy, beauty, healthfulness,
emergencies, methods, children, literature,
amusements, religion, hospitality, ?tc.
Mr. Rollins is a native of this State, but at
present resides in N. C. He will call upon
our citizens in the interest of his work.
"DDK WOMEN IN WAR."
The Charleston Netcs and Courier desires
to obtain fifty or more sketches of the experiences,
grave or gay, lively or severe,^of
the Southern women during the war. Little
has been published hitherto concerning
their sufferings, anxieties and privations,
and the Xeic.t and Courier wishes to make
the record of the war complete, by giving
.e American public a just idea of what the
Southern women endured during the strugLrle
for the Lost Cause. There was comedy
as well as tragedy in their daily life, and
the object is to obtain descriptions of every
side and phase of a Southern Woman's
trials and triumphs, at home, or as a refugee,
during the Confederate struggle. The
sketches in question will be published in the
Weekly Newts, Charleston, S. C., under the
general title of "Our Women in the War."
The conditions are as follows:
1. The sketches must be written by Southern
women who were in the South during
the war, and shall be confined to a
description of events and circumstances of
'which the writers have personal knowledge,
and with which they or their families were
connected.
'2. Each sketch shall till not less than fifteen
nor more than thirty pages of foolscap,
written on one side.
The sketches shall be sent, with the
real name of the writer, to the Xeies and
i Courier, Charleston, S. ('., not later than
March 1st, 18S4.
4. Every sketch that is accepted will be
I promptly paid for, and any Southern wo-!
i man who desires to do so can send in two or
! more sketches.
The object in view is certainly an excellent
one, and it is hoped that Southern wo|
men everywhere will do their part in maki
ing the undertaking successful.

SOUTH CAROLINA NEWS.
I ? Thompson Chappcll, of Fairfield county, I
j was stricken with paralysis on last Friday. I
j ? One man killed ten wild turkeys in.
; Lancaster county during the Christmas hoii:
days.
? Col. T. Stobo Farrow has been given a :
| committee clerkship in Washington by
| Congressman .J. II. Kvins.
? It is estimated that one thousand rabbits
were killed in Lancaster county in
! three days last week.
? At a late sale in Barnwell county, one 1
j thousand bushels of corn were sold at from
(53 to 78 cents per bushel, cash.
? The small grain crop in Lancaster county
is fine. More wheat and oats have been
sown and more pains have been taken in
the preparation of the land than heretofore.
? The colored people in Marion celebrated
Emancipation Day by marching through
the streets of the towyi headed by fife and
drum and the Stars and Stripes.
? The jail at Aiken is not provided with
any heating apparatus and the prisoners
confined there have suffered severely from
the cold during the past few days.
? Accounts from all portions of the State
represent the cold snap of last week as the '
most severe spell of weather with which
this section has been visited for years.
? At a meeting of the stockholders of the
Sumter National Bank last Friday, Robert
M. Wallace was elected President and C. K. '
Bartlette Cashier. ,
? Barnwell People; Mr. John Hewlett,
who was so desperately wounded in the
Christmas day affray at Allendale, is convalescent.
He certainly possesses wonderful
vitality for a man eighty years old. The
bone of his right arm was shattered by a
ball and a bullet passed entirely through
the body, yet his wounds are heating by the
first intention and without suppuration.
? The Chester Reporter says that during
the recent cold weather, the water in Mr.
W. 11. Wise's well, fifty-two feet deep, was
frozen over.
? At the municipal election held in Chester
on Monday last, the following council
was elected: Intendant?W. II. Hardin.,
Wardens?J. Harvey Smith, S. B. Lathan,
J. A. Strieker and (ieorge W. Cage.
? The recent cold weather has been damaging
to the oat crop in Barnwell county,
which, previous to the severe weather of
last week, was extremely promising. It is
thought the later sowings will be entirely
killed.
? The grading on the Greenwood, Laurens
and Spartanburg Railroad is rapidly
V. 1 .. ,1.^
progressing irum nmuiui ivivci iu uit-cnwood
by the energetic contractors Itice and
Coleman, and their subordinate bosses and
working hands. By March 1st, they expect
to have the road graded from Greenwood
to the Saluda near Rosemount on
Laurens side, (old Cunningham place) and
by 1st of May the construction train is expected
to reach the river, and then an iron
bridge will be thrown across.
? Greenville Xrws: W. A. Wharton and
A. IT. Shell, of Laurens, whose departure
for the West was noted about ten days since,
surprised their friends in this city yesterday
by their return. Mr. Wharton says
that business in the West was dull as the
proverbial meat axe andthatabout the only
chances lie saw were street car driving,
ditching or "working colored citizens on
the river." Not being inclined to engage
in any of the occupations mentioned, he, in
company with Mr. Shell, returned and will
go back to Laurens.
? Judge Hudson, the commander of the
2()th Regiment, S. C'. V., and who was
wounded at the "crater" in front of Petersburg,
Va., where the flag of said Regiment
was captured by the Federals, has written
a letter to the Adjutant-General of Missouri
asking for the restoration of said flag;
but the Adjutant-General of Missouri refuses
to restore the flag on the ground that
he has no authority for surrendering the
flag, and further says that nothing short of
Legislative interference in the matter can
secure the restoration to this State of said
flag, which is now in the Armory of the
State of Missouri at Jefferson City.
? According to the statistics of the manufactures
in 1880, just issued by the United
States Census Bureau, South Carolina in
that year, was eighth of the Southern States
in manufactures, but that her percentage of
increase, 70, between 1870 and 1880 is excelled
by only one Southern State, Texas.
West Virginia and Mississippi decreased
and Louisiana and Alabama stood still.
There were in 1880 2,078 manufacturing establishments
in this State, engaging 15,828
men, and producing $16,788,000 worth of
commodities. Greenville county was credited
with 180 manufacturing establishments,
more than any other county, except Charleston,
which had 250.
? The Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta,
and Columbia and Greenville Railroads
have submitted rates to the Railroad Commission
on a few classes of freight, under
the terms of the new law. The rates submitted
for the Columbia and Greenville
Road have been examined and returned to
the Assistant General Freight and Passenger
Agent, Mr. I). Card well, to be prepared
in formal manner. They will no doubt be
approved by the Commissioners. They are
somewhat higher than the rates now in
force, but lower than those in force prior to
the rates fixed by the Commission. The
rates submitted by the Charlotte, Columbia
and Augusta Railroad have not been examined.
? The question having arisen as to whether
a Notary Public who held a commission
previous to the adoption of the State Constitution
of 1868 still holds his office, it was
referred to Assistant Attorney-General W.
K. Bachman, who is of opinion "that he
does not. The new Constitution requires a
new oath, which the old Notary Public has
not taken and which he cannot take without
being reappointed." The AttorneyGonoral
has recently filed an ODinion with
the Secretary of State in which he decides
that trial justices appointed by the Governor
during the recess of the Legislature and
not confirmed by the Senate until its recent
session, are not compelled to get new
commissions. This decision does not apply
to those Trial Justices who were not reappointed
until the meeting of the Legislature.
All of these are expected to make the
usual remittance.

Tiik Gallows.?Isaac Anderson, colored,
was hanger, at Barnwell 0. H., S. C., last
Friday, fee the murder of Air. Owen Williams,
last 'lctober. The condemned man
expressed his willingness to die. lie was
allowed thirty minutes to speak to his
friends, about one hundred in number, from
the jail window. He exhorted his race not
to do as he had done and held himself up its
an example of disobedience to the laws of
God and man. He held no malice towards
any one. He spoke feelingly, expressing
much confidence in the pardon of his sins,
and said that death had no sting for him.
At the conclusion of his remarks he sang a
hymn, then surveyed the scaffold and bade
his brother and all present good-bye. The
black cap was drawi), over him at twenty
minutes after 12 o'clock, and the prisoner
mounted the scaffold without assistance.
Sheriff Riley asked the prisoner if he had
anything to say for himself, to which inquiry
he only expressed his confidence that
he would go to heaven, evincing however, a
desire to make a confession. The death sentence
was then read, and at the final moment
the prisoner confessed killing Mr.
Williamson account of an insult, but said
he was sorry and hoped to meet Mr. Williams
in heaven. At twenty minutes to 1
o'clock the drop fell. By a misplacing of
the rope, during the fall the prisoner's neck
was not broken, and he died from strangulation.
The body remained hanging twentyfive
minutes, when life was pronounced extinct
by Dr. Patterson, and it whs cut down
and turned over to the prisoner's friends.
The execution was private.
John Jarvis, the murderer of Claudius W.
Bonney, was hanged at 1.30 o'clock last Friday
afternoon at Princess Anne Courthouse,
\T \ I li> cii?l mi Tlitirsdav nisrht that at the i
time of the murder he felt an uncontrollable
desire to kill Bonney, which he could
not resist, and expressed sympathy for his
victim's widow and children and regret for
the deed, tie went to the scaffold calmly,
and when asked if he had anything to say,
replied, "No." He then asked a bystander i
to pray for him, which wasdone. His neck
was broken, and his death was painless.
The execution, which took place in the
jail yard, was private, only, about thirty I
persons being present.
Jerry Alexander, colored, was hanged on |
the same day at Sparta, La., for the murder ;
of Samuel Fleming, committed on the 2.'3rd 1
of December, 1882. The drop fell at 2.80 P. !
31. His neck was not broken, and the verdict
of the coroner's jury was that he died |
from strangulation. Alexander confessed
his guilt on the gallows and said he was ,
ready to die.
Tiik Gknkkal assembly.?The time for \
the meeting of ourGeneral Assembly should
be changed, or men sent to this body who
are not compelled to get home by Christmas
and then return no more. Men whose private
affairs are of more importance than
those of the "State, should be left at home
and men put in their places who have time
to give to public affairs. This way that the
General Assembly has of hurrying through I
with important business in order to adjourn
by Christmas will yet do harm. Besides,
if/m. +/? vonv him!nfcm is purripf] over

that ought to be attended to. If nothing
else will do let the time be changed to the
first Tuesday after the first Monday in each
January, and then there will be none of this
Christmas hurry. The farmers will say j
that this arrangement will interfere with
their farm work; but as we said above, if
they have not the time to spare from their
private affairs they can remain at home. J
This matter shouhfbe seriously considered,
is it seems to be a growing evil.?Abbeville

Correspondence of the Vorkville Enquirer.
LETTER FROM UNION.
Union,S. C., January 12.?Since Saturday
last, one week ago to-day, the snow has covered
the ground about four inches, without '
melting. The continuous cold weather
makes us feel that we no longer live in the ^
warm, sunny South. Business of every
description is almost entirely suspended.
Much complaint about the condition of the
public roads has been made in this, as in other
I counties. We can immagine what will be
the condition after the melting of the snow.
The county finances have run short, the
appropriations for the special and ordinary
county purposes having been limited by
statute?regulating her tax levy for the past
fiscal year. The increased expenditures incident
to the building and repairs of bridges
and poor house, which had too long been neglected,
has so increased her county debt as
to necessitate the payment of the indebtedness,
upon a pro rata basis of 25 per cent. *
This has been done by the county commissioners
for the past two quarters. The additional
appropriation of one mill to pay
the past indebtedness, will doubtless be sufficient
to liquidate the county debt.
The new bridge over Pacolet River, at
Grindal Shoals, will cost the county $2,800.
Speaking of this place reminds me that this
tmrtf ic Viiwtnrir* in intnrnet A f tliic nlflPA
the tories and whigs had a fierce tight.
This is where Horse Shoe Robinson figured
so very prominently. The spot where stood
old Christy's house, about tnree miles distant,
headquarters for the tories, is still
recognizable, and can be located by old citizens
living in the vicinity. The old chestnut
tree that shaded the tory camp has been
cut down. It stood for many years as a
recognized landmark, and was known to all 1
its a historic record.
The town council has been engaged for
some time past in the trial of several persons
charged with selling intoxicating liquors
without license, in violation of a town
ordinance. The first conviction, a sentence
of 20 days in the county jail and a fine of
$20, wasimposed. Thecounsel representing
the defendant served the council with a notice
and grounds of appeal. The council ignored
this notice, denying the defendant the
right of appeal, and committed the defendant
to jail. A writ of habeas corfais was
sued out before his Honor Judge Wallace,
and the defendant was admitted to bail in
the sum of three huudred dollars, conditioned
for defendant's appearance at the next
term of the court of General Sessions, when
4-Un I 1 1 tic,

Several other convictions for like offencew
have followed.
Our city fathers seem determined to suppress
the traffic. They had employed a detective,
who disclosed the facts upon which
the convictions were secured.
I learn that at Jonesvil'e (in this county)
Wednesday afternoon, an altercation took
place between Mr. Ilezekiah Spears and Dr.
Carpenter. Spears shot Dr. Carpenter. The
ball took effect somewhere in the left breast.
He is thought to be very seriously wounded,
as he is spitting up blood very freely. Dr.
Henry Beatty, of this place, was summoned.
Probing failed to disclose where the ball is
lodged. Spears is at large, no one knows
where. Dr. Carpenter is a dentist, originally
from North Carolina, but recently from
Spartanburg. Spears is a native of this
county. Amicus.
MERE-MENTION.
Richmond county, Georgia, voted last
week in favor of abolishing fences in
that county. At Richmond, Ky., the
snow last week was the deepest ever known
in that section of the State. E. D. Atchison,
a desperate character, was taken
from the jail of Monterey, Va., last Thursday
night and hanged by a mob. His body j
was then riddled with bullets. Atchison
was incarcerated for stabbing Sydney Ruckman,
who still lives. J. W. Dent, a
cousin of Mrs. Gen. Grant, committed suicide
in California last week. Poverty and
sicnness are rne causes assigned. rie leaves
a wife in poor circumstances. Mrs. Lucretia
E. Patterson, wife of ex-Senator Patterson,
ofSouth Carolina, died in Washington
city last week. A Jacksonville,
Florida, dispatch says that after midnight
on the night of the !)th instant, H. H. Fairbanks,
a machinist of that city, was killed
by C. C. Seeba, a young man from Walhalla,

without cause. Seeba wasarrested.
