ILLITERACY IN THE SOUTH. g
It is stated in the Philadelphla Publi(
Ledger that the percentage of illiteraey b
is lower in Wyoming Territory than r
anywhere else in the United States, sl
there being there only 2.6 per cent of
the population who cannot read-i. .. d
In Massachusetts and Maine it is o..3
per cent, and 3.5 per cent respectively, ii
while in Louisiana and in South Caro- a
lina it is said to be 45.8 and 48 per cents n
and the average for the United State, (
is 17 per Cent. n
Anything which would bring about a
a decrease in the percentage in Louisi- a
ana and South Carolina would attract a
attention, and it is worthy of note that t,
in that region, where the exercise of p
the franchise is furthest extended, the o
percentage of illiterates is least, i. e., in
Wyoming Territory. There the women n
vote.-Charleston World. u
Does our contemporary mean to say '
that the further the franchise is ex
tended that the lower is the per cent n
of illiteracy. Or that because the i1
women are allowed the right to vote e
illiteracy is decreased. The percentage o
is very large in South Carolina and we t
would be very glad indeed to fall upon
some plan that would reduce it.
One reason of the large per cent of
illiteracy in South Carolina and Louis- L
iana is on account of the large number t
of negroes who were once slaves being
in our midst, but the per cent of whites
who cannot read we suspect would sur- t
prise some people.
What we need to reduce this illiter
acy amongst our people is more and
better schools and not more colleges.
We have colleges enough, but we need 1
some plan or system by which we can
place within the reach of every boy and
girl a good common school.
MEN OF MEANS.
"The twelve richest men in the i
United States, first Cornelius Vander
bilt, who is worth one hundred and ten I
millions of dollars, next come the two <
Astors, each with one hundred mil- i
lions. William K. Vanderbilt is the
third, and he is worth eighty-five i
millions of dollars. The fifth is Jay i
Gould, with seventy-five millions. The i
sixth is John D. Rockefelder, whose
property amounts to sixty millions of I
dollars. Blair, Carnegie, Huntington
and Standford are each worth forty i
millions. J. W. Mackay is worth 4
thirty millions and Philip Armour i

Senator Don Cameron is said to have
made this statement: "Ben Harrison

Mr. Blaine, for the reason, we pre
sume, that many predicted that with
Mr. Blaine holding the highest posi
tion in the Cabinet he would really be
the power behind the throne. Now
Mr. Harrison seems anxious to impress
upon Mr. Blaine that Ben Harrison is
president. It is also said, however,
that the other members of the Cabinet
get as little consideration as Mr Blaine,
their recommendations being given no
consideration unless it suited the presi
dent so to do.
Mr. Harrison is creating some fric

If it suits Mr. Harrison we shall not
complain, but we would like to know
if the appointment of a negro postmas

We have been led to believe down here
that it was in accordance with the
recommendation of Mr. Wannamaker.
We had the pleasure of attending the

Geo. B. Cromer, of Newberry. It is
to be regretted that lie was unable to

sickness. He is a fine speaker and

caused no doubt by the heat.
We feel a deep interest in this school
and shall expect our neighbors to keep
it up to its present high standard.

Postmaster at U'niou.
Mr. J. C. Hunter has been reap

received his commission last Saturday.
From what we can hear only one white
applicant for the position opposed Mr.
Hunter, and as no complaint was ren

rood reason for removing him,

Cnowledge subordinated to the influ- t
nee of the holy spirit is a potent factor
a working out the best spiritual capa
ilities of the man. It is not desirable
ut it is necessary. The more we study

ot only this but we must even love
ur enemy. Why ? That ye may be
he children of your Father which is in
leaven. This love is taught us in this a
evelation. Nature does not teach it; i
io system of phylosophy teaches it; no r
iman government has any such re- I
uiremnilt. Nor ci.n we learn such love
rol any source except him who is the s
uthor of it. A m-re apprenension of <
t is uusu.ticient. We must experience f
t in our lives, animating and govern- 1
ng us to do the will of God. We must
)ratice it as did Him who gave us his
ife for the salvation of sinners, his
-nenmies. Jesus exemplified this love
n his life. The manifold ways in which 1
ao(d reveals it to us must be a constant :
natter of study and research. How
,alueless is all else that worldlings can
trasp. The diction of angels and the
anguage of paradise would better fit
,uch a theme. Christ suffered and died
'or a world of enemies. This fact illu
nines the Apostle's words that while
.ve were yet sinners Christ died for us,
md conmmendeth his love to us. Hung
>n brass amidst the snarls and vituper
tions of men and devils because he
oved the sinner and loved to do the
wvill of his Father. Our Saviour says:
Greater love hath no man than this
:bat he lay down his life for his friend."
Not only for his friends, but for sinners
rd his~enemies did Christ give his life.
Having this love the man will devote
bis talents and his labors to the Lord.
ie is lifted above the vanities of the
world, the flesh, and the devil.
These characteristics place man upon
the highest plane to be reached in this
world, and where he was intended to be
by his creator. Love's constraints are
~ot burdensome but joyous. After all
ur efforts to know, the love of Christ
passeth knowledge. Wi~e can never
scale its heighth nor explore its hidden
depths, but the more we search the
higher we reach in this fullness of God.
When we are freed from corruption and
put on incorruptionm then we shall real
ize the words of the Apostle.

is a living reality. In all the wide range

ADD)RESS To STUDENTS.
On Sunday night the address before
the students was delivr"ed by Rev. J.
S. Cozby, of New berry.
The subject of the address was "The
Lordship or Mastery of Christ the best
hope of the world," based upon that ex
pression of Christ "Ye call me Master,
Lord. Ye say well for so I am." These
words at first sight might seem to
render them unworthy ot our serious
attention, when we join to them the
fact that they were spoken by one who
had none of the symbols of magistracy
about himx. He wore not even a sword.
And as to the p)urple and fine linen,
the vest ure-of kings, he was so far re
moved from them that in the depths
of his poverty he declared of himself
that he had not even where to lay his
head. But he came to establish a
kingdom that should be everlasting
and eternal in its existence. A bold
concetion. Alexander and Ceasar and
Napoleon of history had an ambition to
establish kingdoms. Where is the
differenice? The distinct ion of the one
was worldly the other sp'iritual. The
kingdomi of Christ to use his own
words was not of this world. Those
who submitted to him should be
wholly his forever not only the bodies,
but the hearts. Sonie join themselves
miminally whose hearts are far away.
This kingdom is tounded upon tihe very
hearts of msen.
Christ is also the judge of the very
secrets of the hearts of men. Is this
kingdom of Christ on earth a p)hanitom,
a myth. We look out into the world
and'behold the growth of the kingdom
f om that night in thbe upper room to
the present, and we behold muillons
u)on millions of men, womien, and
children, who call him Lord and Mas
ter. Is that kingdom a miythi whose
sceptr sways one hundred and seventy
millions of subjects; and is that foun
dation a fraud that is supported by the
testimony of this great multitude.
There never was a kingdom like this,
so never was there foundation like this
l:ad, sinlce tihe foundations ot the world
wer' laid, when "the morning stars
sang together and all the sonis of God
shoutdl for joy.'
This is an age in which infidelity
staks through the land in various
garbo and masks, but nione is more
specious than that which is known as
agnosticism. Trhe cry is raised "we
cannot see, we cannot handle your
Christ; we must have facts before we
will believe or bow to his sceptre. Hie
is a phantom king. Show him to us
and( it will sutiic us."
Be not afnaid of their voice, nor dis
naed at their countenance. The
Christian religion is full of
facts. It is in facts we rejoice,
and on them we base our hope.
Her head, her Lord, her Master,.is the
fact of the ages. A fact stronger than
granite and more enduring than ada
mnant, for while the waters wvear away
the stones, for eighteen hundred years,
floods of the ungodly have roared and
raged and dashed themselves against

'hos. W. Holloway.
The committee decided in favor of
Ir. F. E. Dreher, of Lexington, and
he award was in appropriate words by
Ion. J. S. Cothran.
The annual address before the
Clumni Association was delivered on
uesday morning by Rev. A. J.
3owers, of the class of 1SS.
The subject of the address was
Present Issues." It was a beautifully
>re;Uared and an ornate oration, and
telivered eloquently. The style and
lictiori were superb. The issues he said
>f which he desired to speak were not
ly present as a matter of time but
vere also present as to place. Life was
constant conflict and issues bad to be
net by every individual and the great
;ry of the hour was for ien who could
withstand the opposing forces of the
uemy in this combat. The greatest
ind most important issue in the opin
on of the speaker was one of a politico
eligious character. On the one side
ie saw freedom of speech and con
cence, and on the other the worst of
lavery and bondage. He had refer
ne to the Rnomian Catholics, and
eared that unless the issue was met
be Vatican would be transferred to
mnierica and that the Catholics would
,et control of our institutions, both
)olitical and educational, and in that
vent he saw a darkness blacker than
hat of the middle ages. We think his
ears in regard to the dangers to our
nstitutions are somewhat overdrawn.
Eowever the speech was well prepared
tud well delivered.
After the address the Association
eld its annual meeting. The present
)tticers were re-elected. It was deciaed
o hold a banquet during the next coni
tencement on Tuesday night. Geo. B.
Lromer was appointed a committee to
wait upon the faculty and request that
the exercises of commencement be so
rranged that the Alumni address
ould be delivered on Tuesday night.
Rev. J. E. Berly, M. 1)., of Lexing -
ton, was elected the annual orator for
next year. A committee was appointed
to request the address of Mr. Bowers
The address before the Literary So
ieties was delivered by Hon. J. S.
Cothran, of A bbeville.
The speaker announced as the sub
ject of his theme, "The harmony of
antagonisms,"' and treated of the con
tending forces in the natural world,
the spiritual or religious domain and
that in the social economy of man.
The constant operation of the law of
opposing forces and their harmonious
results are easily pointed outim the nat
ural world, nor is their presence less
apparent in the spiritual world.
On this latter point the speaker bore
unimpeachable testimony for Chris
tianity over against the agnostics.of
the day, who might deny the divinity
of the Christian Saviour and attemipt
to explain away some of his miracles.
In spite of their ridicule, three grand
principles, the Fatherhood of God, the
divinity of his Son, and the sufficiency
of the Atonement for sin, shall endure
until the end of time in com
plete and perfect harmony and made
stronger by their antagonisms. He
exhorted the young men to stand firnm
ly upon these three grand principles,
which are the very pith and marrow of
the Master's teaching, and he was
strongly tempted to d well longer upon
this branch of his subject, where the
lines have been so distinctly drawn,
the contending forces so aggressive, the
triumphs of right so complete, and the
results so splendid.
In alluding to war as one of the
great contending forces, the speaker
said that our own country, which has
just celebrated the centennial of its
first and greatest President, attests in
the excellence of its form of govern
nient, its marvellous growth and de
velopment, and more eveni than these
the splendid results of strong antag
onisms-in the "times that tried men's
soul's. To the valor and endurance of
the patriots of the Revolution the
succeeding generations were indebted
for some of the grandest men of any age
or any country. They surely ought not
to be forgotten in aiiy assemblage of
Passing from the consideration of the
haronious results of antagonisms in
the natural, the spiritual or initellec
tual, arid the social world, the speaker
showed sonic of the effects produced by
die existence anid contention of politi
Mr. Cothran forcibly said that no
main could be independent of the two
great political parties which contend
or the mastery in our land. The prin
ciples of one or the other of these par
ties must be espoused by all. There is
no middle ground. Independentismi
and every form of political disloyalty,
in their last analysis, only mean the
desertion of one party without attaining
to full fellow.ship with the ot her. Tfhe
reason why parties must exist is that
the antagonism between them is the
only guaranty of stable government.
That party in the very nature of things
must in the end prevail, whose primei
ples and practices, whose objects arnd
purposes are the promotion of the pub
lic good arid the advancemniit of the
welfare of the whole country.
Grover Cleveland, the late Demio
catic Ptesident, handicapped as lie wa~s
y a partisan and obsti uctive Senate,
has given to the country a lesson in
pure politics and clean methods that
will not soon be forgotteni by the masses
o the American pople.
In coiclusion, M r. C'othran told the
young men that every condition of suce
cess is fulfilled in themi; that the miost
valuable lessons are learned from ex
perience rather than- by precept: that
they should rememiber the great advan
tages they possessed, and with stout
hearts and resolute wills, go forth to
meet the antagonisms of life, which
are blessings in disguise, and in the
ovrcoming of which, to him that over
coeth, there is exceeding great re

Johnstown Merchants Starting Business
The 1siness men of the town seem
to have awakened:to their senses, and
this iorning a number of theni were
preparing to begin anew. Two grocery
stores were started near the l'ennsyl
vania Railroad freight station. Both
plae- we"re doing a handsome business
and this eicouraged other nerehants
to start up, and the probabilities are
that within a week at the least a
hundred stores will be in operation.
Already two harx"r shops and one
jewel rf store have is en opened.
The Ii r-t decisive step toward putting
Johnstown b1usiniess tiu"n on their feet
againt was made to-day when about
two hundlred mterchtants who had sur
vived the flood, niany of them without
a dollar, met Gen. Hastings and were
assured that they would be re-estab
lishedin business on long credits. Both
Pittsburg and Philadelphia wholesale
merchants have offered Johnstown
merchants this business courtesy. The
meeting to day turned out to be an
ovation to Gen. Hastings. The Iueet
ing was opened by the General, who
"I have been directed to clear the
street_s of Johnstown and make con
tracts with men to open the way in
order that the merchants be enabled to
get to and fion their business places.
Our work is progressing rapidly and
vigorously, and the best thing for
Johnstown merchants to do is to begin
business over again. I have communi
cated with Eastern firms who offer to
assist you if you will resume business
in this city. 1 would suggest that you
build temporary structures for the pres
ent till more favorable circumstances
warrant the erection of pe'rnalent
establislinents. Pittsburg houses offer
to stock your stores with a full line of
first-class goods on long em edit. I advise
you to improve this opportunity and
when, in course of time, matters take a
more tangible shape you will be able to
repair all the losses incurred.
REtI'CING THE ESTIMATES OF LOSS OF
The general opinion anoig well
posted people here is that the loss of
life will be between 3,000 and 4,000. It
was generally given out that Johns
town and the boroughs adjoining had
a population of 35,000 but this was a
very high estimate, and conservative
people put the population between
:'5,000 and 28,000. Col. Rogers, who has
charge of the registration, states that
from all he can learn the population
only amounted to about 25,000, and
this accounts for 10,000 people supposed
to be lost. The reports sent out from
here to the effect that 12,000 to 15.000
people were missing were based on the
supposition that there were 5,000 in
habitants in these boroughs.
BRAVO FOR THE BANKS!
PHILADELPHIA, June 13.-Governor
Beaver has abandoned the idea of using
$1,000,000 out of the state treasury
under the proposed indemnity bond
scheme, for the reason that such action
might establish a bad precedent. He
has decided instead to adopt the sugges
tion that the money be loaned to the
Governor by private corporations. He
stated that he had been offered a mil
lion dollars by the national banks of
Philadelphia without secnrity and
without interest, the lenders to be
reimbursed by the Legislature at its
next sessin, and lie has accepted this
offer. This money will be used to clean1
the streams andi place the high ways in
order, and perfo)rm other necessary
A Treat at the Opera House.
On Friday and Saturday night of this
week the Bijou Opera Comipany will
give enitertainimeints at the Opera
The Charleston News and Courier
gives the Comipany fine notices. In
one that reliable journal says:
The Bijou Opera Company is making
its way night by night in the popular
favor. And such nights ! Verily, it
must be St. Cecilia himself wvho is
providing such charming evenings for
fthose who love the music of the lyric
composers. In truth the phrase 'sum
mer season,' applied to this heavenly
temiperature is a misnlomier. By the
way, anybody who looks at Bettina's
lov~ely light costumes ought to know
that Audlran never intendt d her as a
star in the winter sky of the stage. TUhe
summier or the spring is of course the
season for such iight, airy and graceful
creationis. The sanie style of reasoning,
which ino one can contradict froni the
librette will prove that this is also the
proper time to see 'Mignonette' and
'Ger.maine' and the 'Bohemian Girl.'
"The size of the audience last night
indicated that the Bijou Gonipany have
niade aii interested friend of the public.
There will be many excellentpoppor
tunities of continuing this pleasant ac
q cuaintance, and especially to-night in
the 'Mascotte' and to-morrow might in
the tinkling silver music of 'Les
Cloches de Corneville,' sometimes
called the 'Chimes of Normiandy.'
