AND MILLER. ..
They -n't Agree Regarding Federal
Contvol'of Spirits in Bonded Wan -honsej
Washington, Oct. 1C Governor
Tillman, of South Carolka, was at
the Treasury Department today and
had an interview with Commissioner
Miller, of the Internal Revenne
Bureau, in regard to a question on
which there seemed to Le a conflict
between Federal and State authori
ties. Under the dispensary, laws of
the Stace of South Carolina distilled
spirits in the custody of the United
States in bonded warehouses, belong
ing to parties who have violated the
provisions of dispensary law by sell
ing them within the State, are de
clared to be a nuisance, ana on con
viction the State officers are au
thorized to seize and confiscate the
liqaors. In all such cases tho Goy
ernor proposed to tender the tax to
the government and seize the spirits,
contending that the Federal au
thorities have no right to interfere
in the matter.
Commissioner Miller took issue
with the Governor and cited several
decisions of the courts, among them
one by the Supreme Court ot the
United States wherein it was held
that goodJ in bonded warehouses
were not subject to any process or
proceeding issued from a State court
and that so long as the government
retained control of the goods its jur
isdiction and authority was supreme.
No filial decision, howeyer, was
reached, and it is possible that in
deference to the wishes of Gov. Till
man the question will be referred to
the Attorney GeLeral for an opinion.

One day last week Miss Minnie
Blalock, daughter of Wm. Blalock,
a well-to-do farmer of tnis county,
was visiting her sister, Mrs. Charles
Anderson, who lives about four
miles from town. Miss Minnie with
several others, among whom was the
little four-year-ol J son of Mr. An
derson, were attracted by a wasp's
nest at one end of the house. There
was also an open well near the corner
of the house, and in their excitement
and watchirg the wasps, the little
boy kept backing back unmindful
of the well, until he went over back
wards. The well was 28 feet deep,
with four feet of water. This
turned attention from the wasps to
the child. For a moment or two
there was consternation. But Miss
Blalock. with undaunted courage,
took in the situation and she at
once proceeded to go down
in the well, and when she reached
the water it was just in
time to save her little nephew, who
was about to sink for the third time.
Che succeeded in pulling him out of
the water, and strengthening herself
she brought him to the top and
safely landed him on terra firms.
It was a courageous act, and the
yonng lady is justly entitled to all
praises for her nerve and boldness in
saying the life of her little nephew.

THREE BURGLARIES IN JNE
V - niuiit;
Ome Man, Whose Ho n-e WnM lvider.
Fired Upon a Kaanected Keero in
the Hnyor'K Oflice.
Stateaville, Oct. 15 Three'noWs
were entred by burglars in this -$ity
Saturday night. At the house of .Mr.
L Pinkus, Mr. Al. Pinkus got five
shots at a colored man: at a'n other
house a negro was in the ladies bjed
room before discovered. Mrs. C L
Warren called her husband, ' stating
that there was a man in the .room.
The man leaped through the window
taking sash and lights with him, and
as he jumped Mr, Warren fired at
him but missed his aim. However,
he left his hat, which Mr. Warren
secured, and with this evidence of
ficers arrested a negro named John
Halybutton, and placed him in jail
Sunday. The negro said the hat
found at Warren's house was his,
but he had traded it Saturday night
to a negro from the county, whose
name ho did not learn in fact a
man he did not know.
This morning Halyburton wr.s
taken to the mayor's office atd
while in the custody of officers,
waiting the appearance of Mayor
Arm field, Mr. C L Warren, who js
an ex-chief of police of this city,
walked into the room and inquired
if the negro sitting against the wall
(who was Halyburton) was the ma,n
under arrest for entering his houf.
The reply being in the affirmative,
Mr. Warren drew his pistol and
fired upon the negro but Chief of
Police Cathey was quick enough to
knock his pistol up, the' ball missing
the neroe's head but six inches. Mr.
Warren was at once disarmed and
placed under arrtst. Mr. Warren
claimed he shot at the negro because
of indignities offered his wife when
the negro was in his wife's room.
Subsequently the negro was tried
and sent to jail. Warren was also
tried and bound over to court' m a
bjnd of $203.

Griffey, the rape fieud, confined in

more men. They went to the iail
and demanded of Keeper Pool the
keys. These he positively refused
to give up. I'usning him asme
they searched the house and found
them, la the cell of Griffey a Btrug.

taken out and placed in a covered
hack and then the procession start

wore no ma ks and were strangets

UOOD DEMOCRATIC DAYS.
The Sqnlre f xpntintes on the Pant
The Democracy of the past h;nl
their tips and downs just a3 wo are
haying them now. We are onlv
keeping the old Democratic camp
fires chunked up and fighting over
again, on Carolina's historic soil, the
battle? our daddies fought away
back in the 40's. It looks as if his
tory was repeating itself, tor we are
doing battle witlr the same foe, high
protective tariff under the assumed
name of Republicanism. In 1841
Cumberland county resolved a whole
newspaper column of resolves against
"the lavish extravagance and pro
fuse expenditures,, of money by the
Federal and Whig parties and their
attempts to "fasten a national batik
on the country." In these dajs
there was a fusion cf the Federal
Whig and Whig parties, but their
platforms were nearly in accord ; not
so antagonistic as these latter day
Republicans and Populists. There
was the semblance of afSr.ity, but
not enough to prevent confusion, for
the "Madisonian," a Whig paper,
said, "a vast portion of the Whigs
were disgusted at the aristocratic
bearing and violent denunciations of
their recent allies, the Federals, and
determined not to fight shoulder to
shoulder with them in an unjust
cause." The tariff was a hying is
sue and the Lincoln Republicon as
serted that "the moment Congress
attempts to raise the tariff the south
ern people will be roused to their
former pitch of fire and fury. The
question was looked on then, as nosv,
"as one on which men may differ
without compromising party delegas
tions," nevertheless the tariff tax on
sugar, salt, molasses, blankets and
all necessities was a burning theme.
There was a cry about "scarcity of
money" and the laborer was demand
ing higher wages. A sub-treasury
bill was discussed and crowds of
office seekers rushed to the capitol,
us Mr. Pickens, of South Carolina,
said, "like half famished wolves on
the groat praries of the west," and,
"there were those distinguished in
the land smelling their way into the
greasy places of the palace, begging
for the bones that might be thrown
there." The Democratic voters were
.-then Jeering about an appropriation
of $15,000 TcTmritfiiely' ifflU $25,.
000 bounty to Mrs. Harrison. The
Democratic party, with its principles
so nnchangel still lives, bequeathed
tu by its former defenders. Thcv,
nnterrified vanquished Whigery and
its ally, Federalism. It is for us to
protect against Republicanism and
its side show, Populism.
Campaigns in olden times were
not conducted like they are now.
There were big barbacues, and gen
eral musters where the sturdy yeo-
menry gathered together and, over
cakes a nd cider, had a good time.
fhe people werj honest in their
political convictions and supported
their Standard bearer with a vim on
an honest zeal ! the candidates in
almost every instance were men of
sterling worth and unimpeachable.
The principles and politics of party
were openly and honestly discussed.
There was little chicanry, and these
old timers would have scorned secret
conclaves and political jugglery.
They would have spit upon the po
litical tricksters and henchmeD who
are so seeming and ofliiciously bimy
before each election. There ia no
doubt that venality has crept in and
corrupted the purity of the bailot
box and iv is passing stange that
men professing to be men, fit men
for any cfiicj in the gift of the po
ple would so belittle themselves as to
barter or plan with such cattle.
These political pimps must have
some encouragment saye party zeal.
or they could not live. There is of
necessity something substantial be
hind all this every day bluBter and
gad of the would-be political heeler
I'm afraid your town is not free of
these political piocurators. Satur
day last, even a non resident could
see by the little straws "which way
the wind blows," and I'm not draw
ing the color line when I say it. The
men who attempt to secure place,
position or office by any save an hon
est open canvass will come to grief,
and the fellow who sells his services
to aid any official aspirant should be
committed to the order of the mem
bers of the good road3 Congress or

the line: at 7 50 you get what you

md 12 50 for. And our line of 10 00
suits is made up almost entirely of
suits you have b n used to seeing '
at 15 00. Now the
for all this is that we buy the t3ods
under value. We go to the market
manufacturers trying to clean out
all of this season j goods and work
ing on spring gools, lo buyers
who will close big lots, the price
don't stand in the way. Ot course
if we wanted to pick up a dozen or a
half dozen of a kind, we would have
to pay something like regular pricep,
but when we sweep the floor of biff
lots running up into the hundreds,
we make the price. . i EtqTJ
