W:N8sBOnO, S. 0.
Thursday, February 1, : : 1877. JNO. S. REYNOLDS, Editor. The Tribune Almanac makes the next House of Representatives to con t 6f 142 Republicans and 148 Dejuocrats, with three members to be.eleoted. Iead what the Grand Jury thought of the charges of intimida tion brought by Warren R. Marshall against the citizens of Ridgeway. Their presentment was made after the fullest investigation. Leading members of both races and parties were examined. Warren R. Marshall testified be fore the Senate Committee in Co lumbia that his wife died from fright in consequence of Democratic terrorism. The testimony of sher physician is that she died from pneumonia. No terrorism existed. Mrs. Marshall was a most estimable lady, and in her last illness received the tenderest care from the families of the very gentlemen whom her husband charges with terrorism. If her death was from other than a physical cause it was due to the political course he pursued and not to "terrorism." We would not allude to domestic griefs but for the fact that Mr. Marshall has made them public. The State Ticket. Mr. Wilkes who was appointed referee in the matter of the election of State officers has presented a voluminous report, showing a large number of technical irregularities in different portions of the State. These consist chiefly of clerical errors by te clerks of the boards such as accrediting votes to Conner and Elliott respectively as Comp troller-General when they were voted for as Attorney-General. The deduction of these errors leaves the Pllowing result* Hayne 91,634, Sims 91,458; Hagood 91,526, Dunn 91,478, Conner 91,513, .lliott 91,407. ; Leaphart 91,575, Cardoza 91,581 ; Kennedy 91,606, Moise 91,550; Tolbert 91,641, Thompson 91,550. By this, Sims, Moise and Thompson are defeated. But 500 votes were cast for J. B. Tolbert instead of J. R. Tolbert, and if these be deducted Mr. Thompson wins. Two boxes were opened at Abbe ville C. H., when the law author ized only one. The rejection of the second elects the entire Democratic State ticket. The Publia Schools. The County Board of Examiners have ordered all public schools in the county to close until further notice. This step was deemed ne cessary by them in consequence of the want of funds. The Chamber.. lain alleged tax bill is fraudulent, and will not be recognized. The Constitutional government owing to the revolutionary conduct of the Senate has made no tax levy. The ten per cent. contribution does not apply to schools. No money will therefore be collected for education al purposes until the Constitutional Legislature meets and passes a regu lar tax bill. The Board of Exami ners deemed it unwise, as well as uinauthorized by law, to continue the schools and thus to run the county in debt by the issuance of teacher,' certificates which cannot be paid. -The Board recognized its grave -responsibility. The education of ghildren is of great importance. But it is still more necessary not to clog the working of the system in the future by the contracting of new debts just as the old liabilities have belen biely settled up. It It errondous to suppose that ths Sclhool Gomnmissioner -receives a * salay..of a thousan d dollars. The amendedslaw allows him compensa.. tiedn based on the scholastIc attend ance.' Mr. Richardaron would be enitled probably to about Aive hun died dollars a' year. But hie has annon c'4liis detarrilnatin to d he, inny receive 66s is iue and to the perfection of the system. Such liberality is praiseworthy. Mr. Richardson : in earnest, and, if the schools receive financial sup port, he will cause great improve ment in them. Honor to Whom Honor is Due. A number of the State papers are engaged in a controversy, each claim ing the credit of having inaugurated the "straight-out policy." The as sertion made by . the Columbia legister that it, in conjunction with several weekly papers, advocated the measure a long time before the birth of the Charleston Journal of Commerce is perfectly correct, and it appears to us that the attacks upon the Register by these weekly journals arose out of a careless reading of its articles. No one wishes to withhold from these papers the credit to which they are entitled. But while this movement was one springing up spontaneously from the people, which, thouglh at first directed by a few leaders, soon gathered such impetus as to engulf them, if the real credit rests with any one for upholding the banner of the National Democracy through all the changes and compromises in this State, it is due to Edward F. Stokes of Greenvillo. During all the time that the Liberal Republi can idea was sweeping over the country and burying the Democratic party, Mr. Stokes refused to bow the knee to the political Baal. Re sponding to the call of Charles O'Connor, he traversed the entire State in a carriage, with a flag, a drum and a Bible, and on the street corners, and at cross roads, and before every gathering of people, proclaimed the sound old straight out doctrines of the Democracy. In Fairfield, Willis Goode, a colored Democrat, was one of Mr. Stokes' staunch adherents, and while all his follow-citiznus were supporting either Grant or Greeley he deposit ed his ballot for Charles O'Connor. The .Register, Intelligencer, and Advertiser returned to the straight out faith some time after. Edward F. Stokes and Willis Goode, with a few other O'Connor Democrats in the State, can alone claim an unswerving allegiance to the principles of Democracy. This movement was an uprising of the people, and the eleventh hour laborers in the vineyard wvorked as faithfully and will receive their penny as surely as those who began at first. No influence in the campaign was felt more than that wielded by the News and Courier. Although op posed at first to the straight out movement, it promptly obeyed the will of the majority, and its march from the seventeenth of August last was one contitiued charge. Blow after blow fell heavily upon the de moralized ranks of Radicalism. The services it rendered were invaluable. Other papers also worked earnestly, just as prominent citizens whose judgment opposed the movement were afterwards its most trusted supporters. All will share the honor of the victory alike ; those who first began the cry, and those who rendered yeomen service in prosecuting the work to conipletion There will be five eclipses in 1877, viz : A total eclipse of the moon on February 27th, visible in the United States ; a partial eclipse of the sun on March 15, visible in Western Asia ; a partial eclipse of the sun on August 8, visible in Alaska, Kam schiatka and the North Pacific Ocean; a total eclipse of the moon on August 23, partly visible in the Eastern and Southern States, and a partial eclipse of the sun on Septem ber 7, visible in South America.
