B. S. DINKINS, Editor.
Judge Hudson has just concluded
a series of articles in the Kews and
Cuurier on the criminal jurispradence
of the State. Hi exposes the weak
ness of the system in a strikingly
logical manner, and shows the disad
vantages the Staie labors under in
prosecuting prominent persons accus
ed of the most serious crimes. He
recommends the following changes in
the law, which he believes will be at
least a partial remedy for the present
(1.) That the office of coroner
he. united with that of the leading_
trial justice at each county seort. (execpt in
Charleston,) who shall be required to be
a lawyer, and that he shall be required to
collect carefully the evidence in the eases
before him and to prepare the cases for the
solicitor: that he sh3ul-d also attend the
trial and Pssist the solicitor in the prosecn
tion. (2.) That the full pannl of pet*tt jurors
be forty-eight. the defendant's right of cial
lenge remainding as it is, and the State's
challenge being increased to fire, at least.
(3.) Thatin trials for capital offences the
jury shall not be allowed to sei'arate until
the verdict is rendered. (4.) That the Judge
shall havethe rightto "sum up"in his charge
by a review of the evidence. (5.) That the
right of bail to convicts pending appeal be
descretionary with the Judges.
What Judge Hudson says will have
its weight with the people and should
influence the next General Assembly
to at any rate, weigh carefully the
suggestions he has made. He ranks
among the abiest judges on the bench,
and this fact with the recognition of
his extensive experieuce as a jurist,
merits for what he has pleased to ad
'vocate, the careful attention of the
most intelligent minds of the State.
The Constitutional Centennial cele
bration was celebrated at Philadel
phia with all the pomp and parade
the great occasion deserved. Over,
two htndred thousand visitors were
attracted to Philadelphia, converting
the city of "Brotherly Love" into a
vast theatre. Saturday the 17th, the
president's day," president Cleveland
delivered a glowing address on the
Constitutioni. He concluded as fol
"We stand to-day on the spot where this
rising gun emerged fron political night
and darknoss andin its own bright merid
ian light we mark its glorious way: clonds
have sometimes obscured its rays and dread
ful storms have made us fear, but God has
held itin its course and through its life
9gving warmth has performed this latest
.miracle in the creation of this wondrous I
land and people. As we look down through
the past century to the origin of our Con
stitution; as we contemplate its trials and
its triumphs; as we realize how completely
the principles upon which it is based have
met every National peril and every National
ieed, how devoutly should we coress with
Franklin, "God governs in the affairs of
3men,* audhow solemn should be the re
-ection that to our hands is committed
this ark of the people's covenant and that
ours is the d--'y to~shield it from impious
hands. We recive it, sealed with the tests
of a century. It has been found sufficient
in the past and in all future years it will be
forund suffieient if American people are
true to their sacred trust. Another centen
nial day will come and millions yet unborn
will inquire about our stewardship and the
safety of their Constitution. God grant that
-they miayvfnd it unimpaired, Andas we re-1
joicein patriotism and devotion, like those
who lived one hundred years ago, so may
others'who follow us rejoice in our fidAelity
and ini qur jealous love for Consatutionai
- iberty. _ _ _ _

took place at Manning between two editors
*on Friday last. One way is to be decent and
moderate in language and criticism in the
press; and the other is to be as immoderate
as youplease, but to treat what is said in a
strictly Pickwickian vein.-Yeies and Couri
-'And there is still another way, fa
miliar to our contemporary. "If I am
a liar, you are aliar; if I am a rascal
*you are another" This last means,
frequently resorted to by our metro

of its readers.
DE~rH oF WASHINGTO''S NEXT OF KIN.
--William A. Washington, up to his
death the nearest living relative of
Gen. George Washington, and who
'was the last male representative of
the name, died at his home in
Owensb'oro, Ky. He was 87 years of
age'and was in many respects a most
interesting character. He was born in
'Virginia, Apiil 15, 1800, and moved
to Kentucky when about six ycears
old. He was a son of Fairfax Wash
ington, second cousin of George
Washington, and was the oldest of
1.-.The Eutawville R. Rl. Extension. The
last time we heard anything of this proposed
Aline, the contract for bridging Santee River
had been given out, and the understanding
was that work was to have begun at once.
Some months have passed and a profound
silence on the subject has characteri::ed the
operators, if they have done anything. Ii
we may judge of what is by what has been,
it is about time for President Barkley to
stand up and tell us what has been done
and is now doing. Railroad men are never
modest. "Toot your born," Mr, Barklev,
"if 1 on don't sell' a claim," Is your road
dead, dying, or only asleep ? Are you comn
ing to Sumit.r. or are you not? Leat us hear
from you. All that land for your "shops"
is here yet-it has riot run away.
3.-The "Three C's" Roud.
Information recently imparted is to the
ediect that twenty fise yards of iron had ac
tually been laid at Caimden on thi big
through line to the West.
That is not much on a line of 700 miles,
but it is astart. If this "lick" is kept up,
the "three C's" will get there after a waile.
But the absorbing question is where wul it
g'-t to? Will it (or they) stop at Camde
branch of the S. C. Rl. Rl. or build at line
from Camaden, through Sumter to Ch.hae-.
