With me are the honor of Spain and the honor of the Spanish army, which represents the country, and whose highest dignity inheres in his august majesty, the king. "Therefore, not as a favor, but as an act of justice which your majesty cannot refuse, the undersigned demands from your majesty that you advise your government to ask the satisfaction that is so necessary to the houor of the Spanish arms.

The Columbia State, of yesterday, contains the following startling special dispatch from Pomaria, Newberry county: "The bottom has been knocked" out of Pomaria, and the war iu Cuba is placed iu the background for the time being. It is well known that the most daring robberies, wanton burning of buildings have been going ou here for several years and little attention seems to have been given it, as all thought it was a baud of "home raised Jesse James," and none cared to strike for fear of being struck back. So bold and daring bad this become that good white men saw parties drive in the place, iu the bright moonlight or early dawn, rob and leave without even reporting the matter or names, however well were the parties known, for fear of bodily injury or secret hurt. First, E. R. Hipps's store was burned ; robbed first, it was thought. Then the railroad depot was forcibly entered, and wagon loads taken, then Selzler & Co.'s store robbed of several huudred dollars' worth. Then again the Southern railroad. At this time detectives came, secured a large lot of the stolen property ; but by a pernicious practice and methods of the railroad, "better compromise and get money thau to punish the culprit," the matter was hushed, although some of the "best citizens," or so supposed, were implicated. Then came the burning of Colonel Holloway's ginhouse and other buildings. Then the la3t, by which it is hoped the parties are trapped and broken up, was that two weeks ago. D. Hipp's large store of plantation supplies was robbed. Mr. Hipp lay apparently quiet; but a detective, in the guise of a "picture enlarger," came upon the scene. He found a wagon load and two buggy loads of the stolen goods iu the house of Mr. A. F. Riser, a former clerk; also in the barn 40 kegs of blasting powder belonging to the railroad. This was in a house near the 1 railroad built for that purpose. The house was burned, aud, it was sup- I posed, the powder, too, until its finding. Mr. Riser lived with his father, ' a most estimable citizen and a strict church member; a well-to-do farmer. Goods of a small nature were found in other bouses of men of good repute. So far, the authorities have arrested A. F. Riser and brother, a Mr. Bickley aud several Negroes, one the renowned "blind tiger" and "dispensary enemy," Yillius Baker. There is no particle of doubt that there are a large number interested, and what is so astonishing, so much so as to border on disbelief, is that some of the most well-to-do farmers, men of families and strict church members, some even of wealth, are thought to be im plicated and should any one "peach" on his pals, then, in that case, I can only say "the end is not yet." The question the good people are asking each other is: "Whither are we drifting," when some of our best men are turning robbers and firebugs. Newberry, March 3.?Jas. A. Riser and his three sons, Albert F., Joe and Willie, and John Bickley, white, and Willis and William Baker, colored, were arrested today at Pomaria, this couuty, charged with robbing the store of D. Hipp, at Pomaria. The case was worked up by Detective Holloway and the stolen goods were found in possession of all. Riser and his sons stand well in the county. In default of $650 bond they were committed to jail for trial next week. WAS DR. BIV1N0S INSANE? Probable Cautte of That Horrible Spartanburg Tragedy. All Spantanburg is shocked at the horrible tragedy in which Dr. Biviugs killed Mr. Trimmier last Tuesday, aud people elsewhere who know the men, are greatly interested. The Spartanburg Herald of Thursday has the following : "Last evening the reporter, in company with a friend, called on Mrs. Bivings at her residence about 7 o'clock, aud iu as delicate a manner as possible requested the privilege of conversing with her for a few minutes relative to the sad tragedy in which her husbaud ? i 1 - - n i dl. naa so recenny ngureu. oue was found very sad indeed and almost heartbroken. However, the good woman was kind enough make the following statement: "I knew Mr. Trimtnier. He and my husband were great friends. I have not seen him (Trimmier) siuce three days before Christmas, when I was in his store in company with my own little girl and three little daughters of my next door neighbor looking at Christmas goods. "There is no gentleman in town who has always been more polite to me thau Mr. Trimmier, although I had ouly a speaking acquaintance with him. My dear husband was, and is now, suffering from, as the physicians say, mental aberration, though I did not fully realize his condition until the day before this unfortunate affair occurred. He has always been as kind and affectionate as a husband could possibly be, and no word of reproach ever fell from his lips agaiust me. He is known all over the county as one of the most kind-hearted men of the city. No one ever asked a favor of him that he did not graut if it was in his power. When parties have been confined in jail, he has gone unasked and bailed them out. No beggar ever left his door hungry. It would have been impossible for my husband to have done a wrong to any one if he had not been demented, much less to his bosom friend. "These words were spoken calmly, but the deep breathing of the good lady and the occasional sobbing showed how terribly she was suffering." PROHIBITIONISTS TU ORGANIZE. Slate Convention Will lie Held In Columliia on April 14. Columbia Register, March 2. The Register's prediction tlmt a convention would be called to nominate a state ticket on the prohibition platform has come true rather sooner than expected. The following call has been sent to the prohibition sympathizers in all parts of the state. Should the proper men be nominated, prohibition will pl?y a very grave part in the future politics of this state : Columbia, S. C., February 25,1898. The State Central Prohibition committee having determined to call a convention of the Prohibitionists of the state to meet in Columbia, April 14, 1898, have authorized their executive committee to issue such call, and the said committee hereby publishes the call and the regulations which will be observed in selecting delegates to represent the several counties of the state in said convention. 1. The convention will assemble at 8 p. tn. on the 14th day of April next, in the hall of the house of representatives in 1 Columbia. 2. The chairman of the respective county committees will call meetings or conventions of the Prohibitionists of their county who favor the enaction of laws restricting the sale of alcoholic liquors in this state to medicinal, scientific, mechanical and sacramental purposes only, 1 and the nomination by the convention of the state ticket who will support such leg- , islation, to be placed before the voters for their choice at the next Democratic primary elections, and subject to the result . i? ?

Looks Like Divorce.?The state I supreme court, on Tuesday, rendered a ' decision that is novel, and which is on ! an entirely new question. In the case : of Smith vs. Smith, from Chesterfield county, there were four questions submitted. The two of importance and novelty are : 1st.

WAR NEWS. \ Nothing Sensational In the Maine Situa- ' tlon. I The lull of seusational develop- j meets indicated in The Enquirer of j Wednesday, continues uninterrupted j up to the hour of going to press. ( The cable dispatches to the Associa- , ted Press indicate that the Ssauish papers are boiling over with cheap blus- , ter of the kind that would create the j impression that Spain is spoiling for a , fight. But to this no importance is , attached. r As yet there is nothing from the g court of inquiry, which is still pursu- j ing its investigations. The papers of f yesterday reported that owing to some c hitch in its plans, the court did not go ^ back to Havana last Tuesday as it in- ( tended ; but is still at Key West. If ( it has to wait on the divers to get t through with their work, its reports u will be delayed almost indefinitely. r The feeling is expressed in some of ^ the more sensational paper, that no ( matter what may be the result of the t investigations in Havunu harbor, the ( event of war will depeud entirely upon j the desire of the money interests ^ north. If this interest consider war y will not pay, then the issue will be j evaded ; but if it considers that war ( will prove profitable, then there will c be given the signal for bloodshed. As j to whether this is a matter of fact or ^ only an appeal to the lower feelings aud prejudices of the people, each in- ' dividual will have to draw his own conclusions, for neither side of the matter can be established by facts. The feeling that there will be no ^ war seems to be growing stronger. 1 SOUTH CAROLINA NEWS. I Gaffney Town Council. a A new town council was elected for ^ Gaffney last Tuesday as follows : N. H.

Congressional Investigation. 6 The senate committee on postmas- n ters and postroads, on last Wednesday, 1 tuthorized a favorable report on Sena- ^ 'V Mason's joint resolution for an in- j1 vestigation of the recent killing of the colored postmaster at Lake City, S. C. The resolution as reported is as follows: "Whereas, It is asserted that the United States postmaster at Lake City, S. C., has been murdered and bis wife and children shot, his home burned and the United States mail and c property therein destroyed ; therefore, Resolved, That a joint committee, consisting of six members of congress, ( three from the senate and three from j. the house, be appointed to investigate c the alleged crime and report the facts c to congress, together with their re commendations, and that they have ' authority to administer oaths, to send \ for persons and papers and to employ a stenographer to be paid out of the a contingent funds of the two houses of i congress, and the power to act through f a sub-committee." r Murder In Spartanburg. Thomas J. Trimmier, proprietor of a bookstore and printing office in Spartanburg, was shot and killed in his office last Tuesday afternoon at 2.50 o'clock by Dr. Sidney Bivings. So far as the public knew they had been A intimate friends. According to the l testimony at the inquest Bivings walk- S ed into the store, locked the front door, e went to the door of the office where a Trimmier was standing with a custom- \ sr at his desk. Biviugs bad a pistol in * each hand. He said: "You have in- ^ mlted my wife," and began firing at 1 ouce. Two balls entered Trimmier's body on the left side and he died iinmediately. Campbell Trimmier, a son of the deceased, started toward his q father, and Bivings shot him in the hand. Bivings then went on the a street and surrendered to a police- c man, asking to he taken to jail at once. Que bullet took effect in Trim- mier's head and the other in his heart. Either would have proved fatal. Trim- ntier was about 45 years of age, and leaves a widow and five children, fc Bivings is a dentist, but gave up the v practice of his profession some time j back and of late has been drinking a ,j threat deal of whisky. r He Ih In KarneHt.

It will prevent decay and waste while you are directing your efforts in accumulating other property. It is useless to gather snow and leave it exposed to the sunsbiue. The deterioration ; in an unpainted house is very great, and those who would protect their property from the ravages of the elements, must PAINT IT. In the selection of your paint, I would advise the use of MASUKY'S RAILROAD PAINT. It is not only the best but it is the cheapest. - IT WON'T SCALE. IT WON'T CRACK! IT WON'T PEEL OFF. There are thousands of paints that are inferior to MASURY'S; but not one sut perior. When you paint your buildings, use the best.

We lon't pay "small amounts" when we re convinced that they are unjust, to iUILE a confiding public into rushing to ur agency for their insurance against loss iy fire ; but we pay all HONEST claims, vhether "large or small," because we lave agreed to do it and it is our business o pay, and pay promptly. If all individlals are honest, and there are no, such hingsas misrepresentation or arson, then re are bound to admit that insurance ompanies are also honest, for all of them re composed of Individuals. They >nly want to insure throe-fourths of the alue of the property, exclusive of the alue of the lot and well. When you rant trustworthy and reliable insurance, ee me. All claims honestly adjusted aud iromptly paid. L. GEO. GRIST, Resident Agent. IPER CENT. PENALTY. )flice of Treasurer of York County, Youkvillk, S. C., February 18,1898.
