The Swnter Watchman was founded in 1850 and the True Southron in 1866. The Watchman and Southron now has the combined circulation and influence of both of the old papers, and is mani? festly the best advertising medium in Sumter EDITORIAL NOTES. The presa of the State is a unit in denouncing the barbarous murder of the negroes in Colleton county, and we do not believe it possible that 'he guilty parties can escape punishment io th? face of the aroused public sentiment of the State The people as a rule, are deliberately opposed to lynching for any Grime save that of rape, aod there is even now a growing sentiment in favor of substituting a epeciai court for the speedy trial aod punishment of this class of criminals io place of lynch law. It will go hard with the men who take the law in their own bands and murder defenceless men and women whom tbev deem guilty of crime. Solicitor Bel? linger has taken up the Colleton case, and the assurance is giveo that be will use the most energetic measures to bring the guilty men to justice. A change of venue will be obtained and a fair and impartial trial given the men This is a good begioning and if justice is dealt out with an even band in this, case, we may hope for lynch law to be banished from the State. There were several pigs entered from this county for the News and Courier prize, bat of late we have not beard anything of them. What has become of the prize pigs ? have they grown and prospered, ar did they die a natural death. There is no end of new county schemes. The latest heard from are three down on the borders of Orange burg county. The prospect is that the number of counties will be doubled. Then, what a picnic for the office boorers. President Cleveland bas gone duck hading on the coast of North Carolina, and is probably baviog a fine time The Congre8smeo?acd Senafers in Washing? ton are mean while enjoying themselves criticising bim for going hooting while Congress is io cession. No doubt Mr. Cleveland would be greatly enlightened and valuably instructed by attending the sessions of Congress and hearing the speeches Perhaps this is why the M C's desire him to remain in Washington At the present price the Watchman and Southron is the cheapest weekly published io the State For OBe dol? lar and fiftv cents you receive fifty-two eighf-page papers, each paper contain? ing fortv-eight columns of matter.

The new Constitution of this State as adopted and ratified by the Constitu? tional Convention, recently adjourned is published to day in a complete and un? abridged form To publish the Con? stitution in the form in which it is pre? sented to our readers has necessitated an -expense considerably in ezeess of the ordinary outlay ; but, as the uew Constitution is a matter in which every citizen ?3 interested to the greatest degree, we felt that it was the du y of any publication that pretends to meet the requirements of a newspaper to lay the new Constitution before its readers As ibis paper has always given its read? ers a service equal, if not superior tc that ci any other weekly paper pub? lished sn the State, we give the com? plete Constitution as a matter of course, We are due our readers au apology foi the delay in publishing the Constitu? tion, but as the delay was broughl about by no fault of ours, we feel thai our excuse is valid. We advise all o our readers to preserve the Constitution supplied them, as they will have con stant use for it during the nest few months. The wife of Mr. D. Robinson, a prominen lumberman of Hatwick, N. Y., was eic) with rheumatism for five months. In speak ingof it, Mr. Robinson says : "Chamberlain' Pain Balta is the only thing that gave he any rest from pain. For the relief of pai it cannot ne beat." Many very bad cases c rheumatism have been cured by it. For sal at 50 cents per bottle by Dr. A. J. China. MISSIONARIES IN JAFAtf. ! The letters of <"ol. John Cockeill to the New York Herald, descriptive of the Japanese, have been interesting and have thrown a vast- deal of light on the social, religious and industrial, conditions, that extistin that progressive island empire of the Orient. Recently he has devoted himself to a study of the mission work that bas been done and is now being carried on by missionaries seut out by the Eoglish and American Protestant churches. Thc indictment he brings against the missionaries is a I heavy one, aud he seem possessed of the facts to substantiate his charges. He says, in part : "The comparative wealth of many of the missionaries is regarded as a stum? bling block. In Tsukiji, Tokyo, the finest residences belong to the mission? aries. The richest foreign resident there is a missionary, aud another io noted alike for his wealth and bis parsimony. Reference is had to the Rev. Dr. Miller and the Rev. Mr. White. At entertainments in the cap? ital the missionary ladies always dis? play the finest and most elaborate toilets. By far the majority of mis siooartes sent to China and Japan are half educated. Some of their doctors have repeatedly exhibited gross ignor? ance io their profession and earned the scornful derision of the Japanese. So common is the lack of education that the Japanese often declare that 'those who are so ignorant as to be unable to make a living doing aught else abroad, become missionaries.' As school teach? ers eight out of every ten are unpopu? lar or failures because they are not firmly grounded in English and the modern tongues. This ignorance, moreover, make many content with a mere smattering of Japanese. So that their sermons in that language are often painful to listen to. Many mis? sionaries whose stay may extend over twenty years-as in the case of the Revs. Ballagh, Loomis and Guiick fail to acquire even conversational corn maud or the Japanese language "The wives of the missionaries have been frequently beard to openly declare their dislike of thc natives, and this in the presence of their Japanese servants They do not seek to enter the home life of the Japanese. They show no feeling common with them, and nearly all their intimate acquaintance? are selected among those of mex*:* or social rank. This is quite galling to humble Japanese couverts. "With the missionary the day's work is usually over after three hoare' teaching in some school, with one hour's study, perhaps, of Ja pa nose. Much time is spent io domestic duties, wholly disconnected with the work they are sent to do The summer recortu of Japan all contain villa?, built hy the missionaries, who arc invariably the first to leave the hot cities and the last to roturn. At Karuiz^wa there are a ! score of pretty summer houses with only one pitiful stunted church-a ?bel ? on the missionary cause and sneered ?f by ?he Japanese. Unlike the Roman Catholics and the Greek Church pro? pagandists, the Protestant missionaries generally to go among and ?ive with and as the Japanese. "Missionaries have every right to the consideration and respect of other people, but it does seem peculiar to see them striving for fellowship with peo? ple of high social rank, yet uofortu- j nately notoriously evil reputation-to I see them mixing with wealthy foreign- j ers who are openly immoral. A cer- j tain doctor, well known, living in the j heart of the missionary settlement of Tsukiji, Tokyo, was received in many j missionary homes and yet his house, nest door to a missionary's home, was j filled with immoral Japanese girls, whose impertinent beads could be seen in his windows every hour in the day. The missionaries may deplore such con? duct, but where the sinner is wealthy or of social distinction they openly re ceive and countenance him. Stories of thc relations between missionaries aud improper geisha girls are rife and sus? ceptible of proof. Reference may be had to Kawasaka, a station hall-way between Tokyo and Yokohama, and famous for its brothels. Much evi? dence can be adduced as to missionaries who arc addicted to intoxicants to such a degree as to impair their useful? ness."'

Yesterday Mr. Hiott preached his farewell sermon at Bethel as its pastor. He took his text from Exodus, 14, 15, and his subject was i:go forward." His sermon WHS a comparison between (he Israelites leaving Egypt and travelling to the promised land and thesinner leaving the world behind ?nd becoming a christian. After the sermon he gave a feeling farewell talk to the congregation in which he said it seemed incredible that he could have been drawn out to so roany people in s-> short a time as he has been to the people of this community during the one "short year of his stay amongst us, and also that be Iud never lived among a people who bad been as kind. No onfe, either among the church members or among those not church members, bad ever been unkind and many of his neighbors bad been especially kind. The byran ''Blest be the tie that binds" was sung and the congregation gave a sad farewell handshake to Mr. Hiott as pastor of Bethel Church. After the services were concluded, a busi? ness meeting of tbe church was held, during which resolutions (offered by Mr Whitfield Wells) were passed expressing kind feelings for Mr. Hiott and his family and wishing them well in their new home, where they will be next year. As stated ia this correspondence last week, the ordination of Mr. Willie Kolb as a deacon of Bethel Church took place last Saturday. His brother Robert was formerly a deacon of this Church and is now deacon at the Calvary Church in northen Clarendon. The teachers who have charge of the free schools in Privateer Township are : Whites, Misses Manette McCutchen, Laura Key, Carrie Cain, Helen Cain, Una Wells and Mannie Spann : Colored, Bertha Sasportes, Eliza J.

Among the pleasant features of Christmas week will be charades and tableaux, which will take place next Monday eight, Dec. 25, at Miss Calley Wells's under the auspices of the Amusement Club. This will be some? thing new for old Privaterr and the occasion promises to be one of much interest .^nd pleasure. The proceeds of the evening will be for the church and an admittance fte of 25 cents for grown people and 10 cents for children under twelve j ears of age, will be charged. Miss Ruth Wells is visiting on Ed ?ste Island. Messrs. Bradham & Cole have a saw mill on the Wilson & Summerton Railroad (old C. S. A N ) on Mr. David Wells's place.

These gentlemen expect to start a saw mill at Packs ville thi8week, at which place they bave three gins and a rice mill ; tho latter will be ope? rated there until tbe 24th, when it will be mov? ed to Manning. Mr. Harley Welch killed four bogs recent? ly, wbicb were eleven months old and ave? raged 205 pounds, Last week Mr. Henry Pritchard caught a coon io Bush Bay which weighed e even pounds. The average weight of ibis animal is seven or eight pounds, and this was a large one. Tbe Rev. P.

From Wedgefield. WEDGEXILD, Dec. 18, 1893. We regret for two reason? that we should hare been laboring under a ni 'sapprrhrnaion when we wrote last week regarding Rev. Mr. Hiott. First, because weare io lose him, and second, bec-tuse we should have reported a mistake. .\3r. Hiott preached his last ser? mon here last Sunday night. He having ac? cepted a call elsewhere. He carnes with him our be?t wishes. Tobacco Planter's Figures For the benefit of those who are investigat? ing tobacco HS it nioner crop, we have ob? tained from three farmers who have sold their tobacco at the Sumter Tobacco Warehouse, the following figures : T. G. Gamble, Shiloh -Planted 3? ?cres, from which 4,765 pounds were made. This sold for $886.35, and Mr. Gamble also re? ceived in premiums $40. For fertilizer? he paid S35. and tor curing $10. D. N. Gamble.-Planted 3 acres and sold bis tobacco for $515. For fertilizers and curing he paid $27. J M. Player, Sardinia.-Painted 5 acres, received $655 for his crop, and paid $80 for expenses. It ia not hard to decide between cotton, or any other crop, and figures like the above. Taking the average of the three ram, and leaving out the premiums, it will be seen that about $160 per acre werr cleared, above the cost of fertilizers and curiog. FIGURES WON'T LIE. And They Prove That There is Money io Tobacco. We have been looking over the sales of tobacco of Mr T G Gamble, of ?be Pud? ding Swamp section, this year This is Mr. Gamble's first year. He planted 3j acres. He gathered and cured 4,765 1 ns of tobacco, for which he received $886 35 net (that id free of warehouse charge? and commissions). This is nearly aa average of 21 cent9 per pound. Who sa}s there is not money in tobacco? We would advise all of our farmers, whose lands are suitable, to plant a little tobacco the coming year With the exception of 300 Ibas., all of Mr. Gamble's tobacco was sold at the Sumter Warehouse.
