Gov. Heyward is io demand at com
mencement exercises and educational
rallies. If he does nothing else dur
ing his term of office hut encourage
education his administration will not
have been in vain.
Postmaster General Payne has an
nounced that no more rural mail de
livery routes will bc established until
the beginning of tho next tiscal year.
He is of the opinion that these routes
are being established too rapidly for
good of the service.

Tlie Atlanta Journal very truly re
marks that thc time is rapidly drawing
near, if newspaper reports are reliable,
when thc South will be forced to in
vade the North to protect the negro
from mob violence. Indiana and Illi
nois seem to he doing their beet to
hasten the day, too.
Thc supreme court of the United
States has handed down a decision in
which it is held that the statute pun
ishing persons who bribe parties pro
tected under thc fifteenth amendment
is unconstitutional. A person in
Kentucky was charged with having
bribed a negro voter, and the decision
of the supreme court is that tho Fed
eral statutes cannot cover this offense.
The peoplo of the North oro begin
ning to soo the raoo question in its
true light, and aro becoming rational
on the subject. Tho South can bo
depended upon to treat the negro right
and encourage and aid him to better
his condition in an industrial and
moral way, but she docs net intend
to entrust him with political power,
it makes no difference who it rieuses
A few days ago at Columbus, Ohio,
tho veterans of the G. A. H. refus'd
to decorate tho graves of the Confed
erate eoldiers buried there or to allow
it to be done. Quite a contrast up
there and dowe hero. Every year in
this city wheo Memorial Day rolls
around tho graves of the few Federal
soldiers buried in tho Churchyard*
nore aro as tastefully and beautifully
decorated by our noble women aa the
graves of our own Bleeping heroes.
W. B. Smith Whaley, president of
three large cotton mills in Columbia
and builder of macy mills in the
South and Wost anticipates a general
ohut-dowo in New England and many
southern mills heoauso of the high
prioe of cotton and low price of
cloth. By selling cotton on hand, he
says, the mills can make $15 per bale
profit, while the loss to manufacture
it would bo $15 a bale. He says :
"gooda must go up or cotton come
down." The mills io and around
Auderson have auffioiont cotton to do
them until the next orop, and nono
of them expect to close down.

At the recent sessiou of the Dioce
san Council of tho Episcopal Church
in Colurabii it was decided to estab
lish a F male College or Seminary in
South Carolina. Thero was no inti
mation where the institution would
be located, but we presume that those
in oharge of it could bo induced to
locate it in any town or city that
would offer the greatest inducements.
Therefore it might not bc amiss for
Anderson to think about the advisa
bility of offering inducements whioh
might cause the institution to be
located here. We have a fine property
in our city suitable for such an insti
tution, and we believe cur -hole peo
ple, regardless of denominations, ?re
liberal and public spirited gnough to
give substantial assistance to an edu
cational institution that would be of
great benefit to the city and this sec
tion of the State. Anderson has
showh what she could do on former
occasions when work and money was
required. We believe Anderson oould
get this seminary if her public spirit
ed citizens would go to work at ouoe,
and we suggest that our Chamber of
Commerce take thc matter in hand
and seo what can bo done.

any state may do UH it pleases in a sov

decision will tend Lo clarity the situa

tho states of tho South, and probably
will put an end to other tent cases. If
so, it is believed here that it will have
a far-reaching ett'ect for good in the
whole country and go fur toward the
settlement or the so-called negro prob
lem. It simply means that the South
ern people are the agency through
which the question of the negro's fu
ture can be solved, and that the first
step toward satisfactory settlement is
found in disfranchisement. It means
that the negro must first be eliminated
from politics. That accomplished, the
white people of .he South can seek, by
industrial development, thu betterment
of the black race, which shall not only
redound to tho advantage of the color

Thu written opinion of Mr. Justice
Holmes contains a diccussion of the
question how far a court of equity
ought to go in attempt inj; to redress
political wrongs, and it arrives at tho
conclusion that such a court properly
has no such pawer-that for the court
to undertake such juiisdiction would
amount in tho end to the administra
tion of tho government by the court,
and puts the whole question up to tho
Congress. Some people hero believe
that this decision will be un incentivo
for Crumpacker and others of his ilk
to get busy again and endeavor to have
their pet measure put through reduc
ing tho representation of thc states of
tim South which have curtailed tho ne
gro vote. If they do it will provo a
precious boon to the democracy in tho
next prent hatti? of the ballots. The
people of tho country simply will not
stand for it, ns was evidenced by tho
sweeping democratic victories of 1874
and isito after the attempt to put
through tho fbrco bills. Tim republi

Attorney General Knox is in a quan
dary. Ile is like tho fellow who was
drunk und was hugging tho lamp-post.
If holet go ho would fall, and if ho
held on bo would freeze. Mr. Knox
has shown that a successful prosecu
tion of tho trusts can bo conducted,
and he doesn't wont to inj uro the trusts.
They are creatures of tho republican
farty, and the party is their creatures,
f tho party is going to turu against its
friends there is going to bo trouble.
If Mr. Knox does not go oe the people
will make lifo a burden for him, una if
ho does go on tho trusts will smash
him. Aud that's what's the matter
Ono effect that tho rottenness in pub
lic oilice under republican administra
tion is going to have, is that it will re
vive tho necessity for a democratic
platform next year modeled after that
of 1?70, on which Samuel J. Tilden was
nominated and elected. That plat
form called for reform in almost every
paragraph. There Is an much neces
sity for reform new as there was then,
and it seems to be the consensus of
democratic opiniou here thatt' o cry of
reform will be one of tho issues iu- the
next campaign. If tho honest men of
tho nation, regardless of polities, could
be made to uuderstand tho conditions
hero in many of the departments, they
would sweep tho republican party out
of oflico on the cry of reform alone and
with no other issue in the campaign
