Friday night last.
In this issue of tho JoURNAL is
published a portion of Congross
man Latimor's speech on the Bland
soignorage bill, and we regret that
limited space would not allow a
publication of tho whole speech.
We have already givon our ideas
concerning it, made up from re.
ports in the' newspapor, but a po
rtisal of the spoech itsolf incroases
our admiration for the ability, pa
triotism and nobleness of the man,
who represents the third district
in congress. He is true to the
great interests, intrusted to his
keeping, and is invincible in spirit,

Woe are having some bad weoather
this mon th-snow fell hore on the
night ot thme 24th and 25th to the
depth of eight inches on an aver
age, and the thermometer only re
gistered 10 degrees, and I call that
cold. Our people are out killing
rabbits, all that are not down with
the grip--several families are pros
trated with that awful disease.
The [farmors are getting ready
for the next crop of six cents cot
ton, and some are speaking of
planting corn, but I guess the snow
will step them, since our p)oople
have not purchased any guano yet,
but I thmnk from what I can learn
they will use about the same as
last year. Wheat is small but
looks wvell. Oats looked fine bo
fore the snow. With best wishes
for the success of the JOURnAL.

We are again startled with the
death of another worthy lady, Mrs.
Winefred Winchester, who died of
'heart failure, very suddenly, at J.
M. Wmnohester's, in the 86th year
of her age. She was a kind mother
and a good neighbor, and a mem
ber of the Baptist Church. ir. a. w.,

"Governor, you havo Se0n tlh

for a mass meeting in that
County on Monday, Alarch 5th,
for the election of a delegatE; to
a Stato convention, and an in
vitation to the other counties to
do likewise. What do you think
of it ?"
The governor answered, afteu
some consideration of the ques
tion: "I feel some reluctance ir
obtruding my views on th
public on a matter which I fully
discussed in an interview short

see how it woul( be desirible m
n'.cessary to concentrate the re

but the advocnte of a con vent ion
to noiniiiate a reform IIcandidate
for governor appear to forget
that such a nomination. without
previous discussion to allow the
people to judge of the fitness of
the various aspirant s, is totally
inconsistent with all our previ

"What, then, (10 you consiidt
the best course to be pursued hi
the reformer?'' was the straigh
question which was asked nex
"The Colleton people have hi
on a scheme to allay tihe unr'es
wich is, perhlaps, as good t
any, with two. additions <
changes. They were in too bi
a hur11ry, and instead of callin
a convention of one from eac

is no need of hurry, anlywa3
and any movement which doc
not come from the people them
selves will create great dissatii
faction and must defeat.
"Ihow, then, shall the thin
be brought about?"
"Well, in my judgment tli
only way in which it can 1:
