" ANOASTER, after trying prohibition
for several years, has sent in to the
Legislature a petition to repeal the
Act. Prohibition has been unable to
prohibil over there. The law against
carrying concealed deadly weapons
ought also to be repealed as far as
Lancaster Is concerned.
t .I Not Wanted.
As chief advocate of the bill pro- I
viding for the calling of a constitu
tional convention Col. Iaskell "speaks
an infinite deal of nothing, more than
any man in all Venice; his reasons are
as two grains of wheat to two bushels
of chafl, you search all day for them
ore you find them, and when found
they are not worth half the soarch."
If we have expensive county gov
ernments and a still more expensive
State government, as alleged, it is ]
certainly not necessary to call an ex
pensive convention to get rid of them.
If the Constitution provides for any'
superfluous office it is a very easy
matter to pass a simple amendment
lopping ofr the same without entailing
on the taxpayers any cost whatever.
It is creditable to the House of
Representatives that this bill should
have been buried beyond a possibility
of resurrection at this term. It will
very likely come before the next Leg
islature, however, and hence it is
needfnll that the people should make
it plain the meantime that they will
not pay for a convention simply to
gratify the idiosyncrasies of a few
A short while slne-e - a cominunica

HERALID re-opening the cotton factory
question. We thought the suggestion
a good one, and have been waiting for
some stop to be taken in pursuance
thereof. There is no reason why we
should not have a cotton factory at
this place; the money is here, the
brains are here, the only trouble seems
to be that the industrial energy of the
community is asleep. It is getting to
be the duty of somebody to stir things
A cotton factory will pay here;
everybody knows this; the raw mate
rial is right at hand; wood and water
are quite accessible. Then why don't
we have the factory.
The truth has at ia t dawned on the
people of the South, that the indus

The above-stated ease is now pend-t

Teaction is brought by Col. Mc
Crady to recover ten thousand dol
lars damages for alleged libelous mnat
ter concerning himself, published by
the defenidant Dr. Robertson. The
cause has its orIgin in a private quar-r
rel between the p)arties. Dr. Robert
son has not gone behind the door to
defame the character of Col. McGrady ;
lie has not whispered in secret what
he dared not speak out in public; on
the contrary the action is based on a
letter written by the defendant-to the'Io

complained of are explicitly made,
publication admitted, and the plaintiff'
advertised of time, place and circum- '
The complaint in this action had no.

Charleston daily papers rushed, In ~
partisan haste, to the issues, before i
they were made up to say that Col.t
McCrady was not guilty, and to give ~
their unsought testimony to his high
moral character, etc.
Now we have not one ' word to say
against Col. McCrady ; we will spend'
noe opinion as to the merits of the case
in the premises until we have heard
both sides, but we do desire to say in (
reply to what has been said, that Dr..
Robertson, the defendant, is well
known in this community, where lhe
was reared; that lie is known here to
be :a man of unspottedi honor, integ
rity and verocity ; that he can find as
many and as good men in this latitude
to testify to his good character as the
eager friends of Col. McCrady can
find to support his, eoen in that solf
