It seems that .Mr. Goldstein ob jects to or resents the iippestion that he has been "'placated, What doe "placated"' mean It js notorious that ho was re Kent fnl. ah nearly all tho citizens of the county were, of Gov. Mo Laiirna treatment of him; and morever, in the very recent past he was decidedly anti-McLaurin Now he ia au active supporter of the Governor. Hence he must have leen "placated," or concili ated "appeased; pacified; won gained; engaged by moral influ nce, as by favor or affection; ree imciled" as Noah Webster hath it Now, as to the method or means employed to "placate" him, The "Limes does not mention or Bujr est, as it has no 'means of know. ing. No dishonorable means were employed, The Times hopes. Cer tainly none such were (suggested or intimated; nor is it responsible for nny compromising influences. We can forgive tklitor Connol ly much, but when he hurls such a word"as "smeqiianonymousl" at v", rft us pationee ceases to be a virtue, "Men -are but instruments in the bands of the people.''

"Where is that proof you had in your pocket -on the stand at Su f(iielena . "Voter," "Inquirer," &c. &c, are or i. sparing the editor of the Greenville J)omocrat a great deal of space writing during these troublous times. Tho consistency with which he or they spells it "constancy' points to a cam of nnny aliases anil but ono mind. A IKrRKATB EXPEDIENT The anonymoui writon who have recently been so busy ia be half of the McLaurin-Skinner- Jayne-Kogen-Brawner-et al-ticktt hare been mored to spaimig of yirtuous indignation at the tiae of the term "placated" by Thi Times in referring to the attitude of Mr. Nathan GohUtein in regard to the present political aitnution. Tin Times used the wonl a.t- viaedly, and based its assertion up on the facts that when a ticket containing the names of LeKoy Fercy for State Senator, E. N. Thomas, and F. E. Larkin for representatives was suggested to Mr, Goldstein he said that he would not hu a ctKxI citizen of Washington County if he did ot support it. Surely the fact that the nam pf Mr. Campbell has since lcfl substftutej tor that of Mr. Percy would not hare made the ticket di.Utetui to Mr. Gold stein, or to materially ohanged bis oonvictions as to tho duty of good cltliten of Washington County." Soon after this Mr. Goldstein is found getting up and supporting an avowedly McLaunn ticket, containing the name of Capt. J, M. Montgomery, the waqtrboop posed him for levee commissioner and for aheriff and was appointed to the former position by McLaur in in spite of the fact that Gold stem was asked for by four-fifths of the people of the countyi while the ticket which Mr. Goldstein at first warmly advocated and now repudiates contains the name of F. K. Larkin, who conducted his race for sheriff, n.( supported him steadfastly during that trying time, The Times believes that the ob ject of the agitation is simply to provoke the hateful and ruinous spirit of race prejudice which has before been appealed to with re sults which every "good citizen of Washington county" deplores and would avoid. Some time since, Mr; Kugene Boeren oimnly asserted that he would "control the entire Jew vo against any man that LeKoy Percy jkomU support for any office" because ilf. Persj sup ported Mr. J. B. Hebron for Sheriff. Sensible men, whether of Jewish or Christian religion, set this down simply as the idle and vainglori ous boasting of yortth , and a desire to magnify the per sonal importance of the speaker. This view The Times still holds and will continue to hold. It condemns and repudiates the idea of an "entire Jew vote" as insulting to the independence and brains of a laree lxKiy of our most intelligent citizens. It believes tbat the attempt to stir gp rat prejudice has been seized upon, desperately. as a shabby political expedient If any smouldering embers of the fire kindled hero by a municipal contest still live, they . must be fanned into flamo by seme other agency than The Greenville Timks, That this utterly unworthy effort will fail The Times is convinced. Notwithstanding the boast of Mr. Bogen there are too many of our Jewish lellovf-citizens who are supporting the ticket beaded by Mr. Campbell to make it possible to arouse a race issue in this mat ter. ,Xhe gentlemen composing the ticket have every confidence in the assurances they have received from their friends of this persua sion, lhey and J he J imes recog nize no religion in politics; and the word "nationality" is utterly ab surd in this connection. Our nat ionality is the same. We are all American citizens, and the attempt to draw distinctions and array one against another is a covert attack on public peace and welfare which merits prompt and severe rebuke from both. T if. tfood people of Greenville ittwl Washington county are again inked the wtiiif old question, viz : Will you be ruied by Mr.'.layne? They have already answered thi question by an emphatie neg ative m often that thore remains litdc doubt of what, their reply will I; now. The fa,;t tbat Mr. , Jttfpe is McLaHriuisrd's Jieuten-. .? -irrt, 4rl has for" las ; aides Eugene ..Bbgen MttJ J(tshrt'a SkinneV will fnUy jncUne lite people to accept bun more raadily than in the jast. Friends of Mr. Joshua Bkinner are exercised about a squib which is attributed to the Vicksburg Herald, in which it is claimed that Mr. Skinner is callpd a scalawag. This is an error. The article ap peared In the Yicksburg Post, un 4er the heading fcLuHn Le4F in Washington County," and is as follows, The Times should not wonder ai Skinner's conduct In other por tions of the State, some old scala wags ihj sought nominations at the hands uf nagrp conventions, are qow tho loqxjest ptioutjsps for McLfturln. '., ' - See C M.' Ham'a IJixie Mos quito Bat Frames the best frames on the market. They can be at tached to any kind of bed. i;nijch vwo vlaos." This Tim8 has no oxplanatkm to make of its ciiticism of the legislative ticket put into the fold by the McLaurin faction. Tbere was no assertion made in that ar ticle which it is unwilling to stand up to; no charge which it does not. believe can be fully sustained; no personal allusion for which it feels called upon to apologise. In its seriatim criticism ot the Skinner-Montgomery-Batts - Was son ticket it kept studiously with in the lines of courtesy and sought only to make a temperate and legitimate analysis ot the ticket. The qualifications of a candidate can le judged only by means of h'm recopl or bi Jiprsunl charac ter. If he has no record, in puljie. or political life his personal char? acteristics must necessarily fur nib the means of judging of his fitness. Of the candidates proposed on the ticket mentioned, only ono Mr. Skinner has a publw report l. It is true that Mr, Montgomery sat in the legislature fppm Wh ington County for two years, but during that time his achievements were so entirely negative as to give no grounds for guessing wjiat he would do if he could. To be sure, it is to his credit as a legis lator that he did no harm This standard of judging applies with even more force to the re maininir two srentlcmen on the ticket Messrs Batts and Wwsson. Mr. Batts is generally acknowl edged to be a good farmer, and Mr. Wasson a young man of pleasing address who, we hope, will itj q"ue time make a successful law yer, Mr. Skinner has the misfortune to possess a public and political record. t is ob thia that Tf!S Timis passps )ts criticisms, a ventures to gravely question his availability as timber for fitate Senator from Washington County on a Democratio ticket. In his onen letter to the editor of Thic Times, published in the Democrat of March 2lth he says: "I am of medium ability; voting the Demo cratic ticket and contributing al ways to its support." Mr. Skinner has made no public avowal of his oonvepslon to Pem ocracy except by the publication of this letter and his acceptance of Democratic nomination; and in the light, of hia past history, The Times is compelled to regard his assumption of the name "Dem ocrat"' as a clever- pseiidonytn. That Mr. Skinner should have been generally regarded as a Re publican for 20 years, and should systematically foster the impres sion by his utterances and actions is no discredit to him. It rather shows uiui ic b consistent in the face of difficulties and discourage mcnts. T(iat he shou!'l have seen the error of bis way at this late day is still loss a discredit; but his claim that he has leen a consistant Democrat is simply laughable and will lie regarded as a joke as soon as the public recover from the as tonishment produced by it. Had the editor of The Times been ask ed, three weeks ago. what was the political faith of Mr. Skinner he should unhesitatingly have answer ed "Republican," and thi after a close acquaintance of 20 yeai-6 du ration. v e believe- that any one else in the county who knew Mr. Skinner ' would hare gia the same answer. How he voted we have no means of knowing. Prob ably, like many other Republicans of standing and repute, he' some times voted with ppinoprats on local issues. Certainly ho sup ported Mr. Catcbings warmly in tho last campaign. "Howsoever these things be," will Mr. Skinner state whether or not he attended the constitutional convention the most important ever held in the county and if he did not stay away because he was a Republican and had no voice in its delilierationsf When McKin- ley was elected and A. G. Pearee, a negro and an objectionable can didate, seemed about to be ap ooloted Postmaster, was not Mr. Skinner" requested to apply for the office because he was a white man and a Republican, when it uras known that only a Keimbli can would be appointed f When, in twenty years, has Mr. Kkinnor, contributed anything at all to the oounty Democratic campaign fund, or taken any imrt in the deliber ations of the Democracy of this Dujtrjct; and if so, to whom did be make it? It Mr. i?kjnner eyer read Sam Jones' aorniori on .VGo'd, Record i m i l.Ji 'A ' ia i anu ioncieuoe, ne luust realize that he cannot divorce himself from a record of twenty years by a 0aysnper article, and if, as he recently tftad t a, . brother Re publican, he is lonesomju 99 a Re pb)M4n, tip nan kmo into 'fife Demotr&t( fWtyor' soaaljly, but not for oliic. ' I ' " -I ' - A II privatk pkopkhtv amb rrn- - LIO I SK. What law is it in regard to le vees that Messrs Skinner, Wesson, Montgomery and Batts are to hare changed, and what change is to be made in the law ! The Levee Board saw fit to locate its levees on w hat is known as the "Huntington Short Line" route, and iu doing so built across Black Bayou, dam ming up the drainage of the en tire area embraced lctween the two lines of levees, about 50P0 acres of cleared land, owned by worthy people who had lcen since the organization of tho levee sys tem contributors by taxation to its support. Tho constitution of 18H0 pro vided that "privuto property should not 1)0 taken or damaged for public use, without due com pensation first made." Tho land owners damaged after having fail ed jn their ctforts to induce the Board to change the lino, conced ing that the Board had tho power to locate thp jovoe where jt sv fit, asked that thpir damages might bo assessed by some tribunal appoint-' ed by law. This right the consti tution gave them, and for tho ex ercise of it no one can blame them. The Board would not suinnpn the Commissioners created to as sess levee damages, although the constitution placed upon them the onus of compensating the party who was damaged by the bin'jing pi a levee, so the land ovuiors themselves petitioned that these commissioners might be assembled for tho purpose of ascertaining to what extent they wero damaged. The Board did not deny that the (wilding of thp leyep dainaged the aud owners, but objected to the Commissioners assessing the dam age, because they tinq no jurisili tioij to do so. this contention seems not only unsound in law but an unwjse one to hayo bee made by the Board, for if th Commissioners had no power to assess tho damages done there was no tribunal created by the law to do so, and the Board was proceed ing in violation of the constitution when they inflicted the damages. Barred by the action of the Board itself of the opportunity ijf sub mitting tjjoir claim for damages to a jury, the land owners asked the court of Chancery to enjoin the Board in the construction of the levee until it had complied with tho constitution of the State, and first compensated them for th damages done to them. The poo- pie or ine district noiieve that the Levee Board should be allowed to locate its line of levee where its engineers think best, but they al so believe that the property owner whoso property has been taken or damaged by such a location is en ..11. f tl titled to have his damages ascer tained and paid in accordance with the constitution and laws of the State. Whatever delay has beon incident to , the closing of the Huntington Short Line has been occasioned by the action of the Levee Board, and the effort to make political capital out of a law suit in order tp help a weak ticket and a bad cause . by censuring or endeavoring to stir up feeling against attorneys who are simply asserting to tne pest of their abili ty their clients'' fights, under the constitution and laws of the State, ch"bnt react against ' those' who are driven- to such a. desperate ex pedient. The law in the case was plain; the blunder was in the Board pbjeptjng to tho enforce ment of it. Does the McLaurin ticket propose to enact a statute that the Ijojee Hoard ' shall here after understand thp hy, and not htunder in reference to it, or to change the constitution and permit Uro uoard to tako or damage pn vate property without compensat Kxecutive Comniitli'fl ing the laud owners therefor? The Camplwll-Thoinas-Iiarkin Cawtleman ticket is claimed to have been made up by LeRoy Percy.

We have diligently inquired in- to all infractions of the law that have been brought to our notice, have examined one buudred and twenty-five witnesses and returned nineteen bills of indictment. We have examined the State and County Convict PannB and find the prisoners well provided for on the County Farm, we found one pris oner, Will Saunders, whose health in such precarious condition. that he is unfit for au manual labor, aud at the request of the contractor, we recommend that the Board of Supervisors discharge bint. e have examined the jail and find same in first class condition; prisoners well cared for, sanitary conditions good. We have examined by eommit tee the books of the various coun ty officers and tbe levee Board and so far as we were able to as certain jn the Jiinited time aHowed s, we hnd. same correct and well kept-. Another matter has conro tg our f attention which we have given a very thorough examination and which we deem our duty to report fully to tbe court, and that is the matter of false swearing by wit nesses who appeared before Notary CampbeU Trigg in the matter of the contested election of General Catchings by C. J. Jones. One witness before Mr. Trigg swore that he sav more than two hundred registered qualified elec tors present themselves to tbe of ficers of election in Qreenville and offered to vote aud were denied the right to vote by said officers. Wo have examined the officers of said election box, who are known to us to be men of integrity and high standing and each of tham swore positively that there were not ten persons denied the right, to vote at said election, and those were not qualified electors. At Leland one witness swore be fore Mr. Trigg that he saw over eighty qualified electors present themselves to the officers of said eleetion aud offer to vote nnd that they were by said officers refused the right to vote, Wo have examined ou oath the officers of that election preciuct who were also men of integrity and they swore that there were only thrte parties denied the right to vote at that precinct, Two ne- gros and one white man and those because they were not qualified electors. , This was the statement of'all the election officers, in cluding the Republican election Officer, himself a negro. , " I We have returned no bills against the parlies who have just perjured themselves because the District Attorney has advised qa that this court has no jurisdiction of tbe offense, We embody this statement in this our report in the hope that the publicity thus given the matter may result in these offenders be ing finally brought to tho bar of justice in those courts whose juris diction is complete.
