The Leading Colored Newspaper Thinks
That the Duke of Darlington Got the
Better of His Brother in White.
[New Yoik Age.]
Capt. John G. Capers, the na
tional Republican committeeman for
South Carolina, is having all the
trouble which a man in his position
could desire. The Hon Edmund H.
Deas, the "Duke of Darlington,"
has no faith whatever in the sort of
death-flop into the Republican party
which Capt. Capers made in his re.
cent address at Orangeburg, and still
regards him as an alien and di
turber in the Republican household
of South Carolina.
Capt. Capers has just been facing
a searching examination into his of
- fensivo partisanship, and other of.
fenrive conduct., by a representative
of the civil service commission, on
charges preferred by Mr. Deas. The
two men have also been paying each
other some very hot compliments
through the columns of the Charles.
ton News and Courier, and we are
bound to say that Mr. Deas has the
better of the war of words. The
lie has not as yet passed between
the two men, but that which resem
bles it has.
The Washington correspondent of
the Charleston News and Courier
says that John 0. Capers, national
c mmii teeman and district attorney,
and Micah Jenkius, collector of in
to+rntl revettne, both Democrats of
Sotut h Carolinat, called on the presi

milan I )t"ats, and which an agent of
the civil service commission has in
vtst igattul. The correspondent says
furthier: "Dl)ets aid his friends have
furtishid the president with all the
details of the investigation. The
prosidotet has every confidenco in
MAossrs. Capers and oenkins, and he
is not. opt to b seriously disturbed
by anything Deas may say or do."
As we unders(anid the attitude of
the President, who was oncWe a civil
service conmissioner himself, he has
''every confidece' in no violator of
the law, and whether he will he dis
turbed by what Doas "mtay say or
do" will depend upon the report of
the civil service commission, based
upon the findings of its own agent,
when the matter shall be submitted
to him for review and disposition. If
Capers and Jenkins have violated the
civil service law, as Mr. Deas charged
that. they had, and1 if the civil ser
vice commliission sustains Mr. Dens's
content ion, will not this disturb the
President's comnposulre? We shall

A Large Proportion of Its People Not Idle,
But Engaged in Many Pursuits.
I Norfolk (Va.) Landmark.]
"Life in the Old Smith" is it
t'ue paper contributed by the Rev.
J. M. Hawley to the September
October number of Things and
Thoughts, a bi monthly magazine of
merit published at Winchester, Va.
Mr. Hawleys contribution deserves
speo'al attention because it refutes
the oft heard charge that the ante
bellum South was a nation whose
citizens, as a whole, posed in grace
ful idleness and let the slave do all
work. People of the present day,
even in the South, (perhaps,) have
.sme to think that in the years be.
fore the great struggle between the
sections the white men of the North
did more work, man for man, than
the white men of the South. The
overdoing of the theory that the
south was settled by the Cavaliers
and the North by the Puritans has,
by simple association of terms, had a
great deal to do with the deponing of
this impression.
We consider the following extracts
from the Rev. Mr. Hawley's article
to be a valuable contribution to
American history:
"There were in the South (by the
census of 1850) in round numbers,
147,500 persons owning from one to
five slaves. If these persons repre
sented a family of live persons each
on an average-and many Southern
families were large.-we have no less
than 872,500 persons dependent upon
five slaves or less to the family for
support, when only two in the five
wore capable of profitable work, their
own support. to come, at the same
time, out of the profits of their
own labor. Was a population of
1,745,000 souls over clothed and fed
by the labor of only one fifth of their
"How much Southern men may
have been accused of idleness and in
dolence, very many of them -slave
holders and non slavelold,rs alike
were compelled to rely upon their
own energy and industry for a liveli
hood. To rely upon the labor of the
few slaves they owned signified in
creasing poverty and embarrassment.
"And how were the thousands of
families that owned no slaves and
yet conprised two thirds of the white
population of the South to he sup
ported ? Hero again the United
States census for 1850 gives us many
interesting and significant facts. T1hie
[number of white persons engaged in
laborious occupations in the South in
the year wvas larger in proportion to
piopuilat ion than in the North. The11
census gives us the niumber of white
persons over 15 years of age engaged
in any oc-upation in each State of
the Union. The figures are dlecided1
ly to tihe credit of *.he South.
"Liet us compare a few Northern
with a fewv Sol.t herni States. In
Massachusetts the per contage of per.
sonis over 15 years of age engaged in
work was '45 39; in lihode Island,
410.71; in New Hampshire, 45.05; in
Connecticut, 40.46; ill New York,
'7.61; ill New .Jersey, 47.2w. Now
let us glance at an equal amber of
States in the Sonth. In Maryland
the per cent age of white persons over
1 5 years of age engaged in work was
51.80; in Virginia, 40 54; in Georgia,
47. 18; in Florida, 53 04; in Mississip
pi, 51.28; in Texas, 5408. Thue aver
age for all the States in the North
was 4792; for those in the South
419.14. But.one SouthernSt ate-Mis
souri-fell to an average so low as
Massachusgetts. But t wo in the North
-Plennsyl vania and Iowa-rose to
an average so high as Maryland or
Mississi ppi, not one of t hem equaling
Florida, Arkanars, or Texas.
"The'se facts are dlecisive of the
quest ion of industrial conditions in
thle South. Wh'atev. r may have been
the inifluenent of t he Africon shiadvw
of the people south of t-he. Macon and
D)ixon line, it did not pr.'dnee men
who dispised labor anid lived in idle
ness andl luxury. Glo 1o any State
of the South and the fact. remains
that the average of the white popu.
lation living upon the interest of in.
vested money and having no occ.upa
tioni was considerably smaller than
the North."'

Child Drowns in Barrel.
While the parents were attending
church and while playing on the
back porch at his home, John F.
Green, the one year-old son of Mr.
and Mrs. John F. Green of West
End, Atlanta, was drowned in a bar
rel half filled with water Sunday.
There were no eye witnesses to
the accident, and the exact manner
in which it occurred is not known.
Mrs. Green, the mother, was attend
ing eh1,eoh services at the time.
She cariied her infant to church
with her, leaving the little boy at
home in care of the cook. The lit
tle follow began playing about the
house and while the attention of the
cook was attracted in another direc
tion he went out on the back porch.
a few minutes later a lady who re
sides next door camne over to the
Green: home to see Mrs. Green. Not
finding her in the house she walked
through to the back porch, and
there a gruesome sight was revealed.
Lying in the half filled barrel was
the dead body of the child. The
body was quickly taken from the
water, but life was extinct, and ef
forts at resuscitation were futile.

It's this way:
You can burn yourself with Fire, with
Powder, etc., or you can scald yourself
with Steam or Hot Water, but there is
only one proper way to cure a burn or
scald and that is by using
Mustang Liniment.
It gives immediate relief. Get a piece of soft old
linen cloth, saturate it with this liniment and bind
loosely upon the wound. You can have no adequate
idea what an excellent remedy this is for a burn until
you have tried it.

Linhuout. It is called a STANDARD remedy by poultry breeders,
