What n*xt'! r The "verdict in tho state a gaiust James Wilcox was mur der in the .second degree, the penalty for which is 30 years iu the fctatc Prison. If Wil - cox is guilty at all a hang ing would have been more in accordance with justice, Uit lite will of the people must Lei Rubim.Mve to the decision il the twelve men. Our legislators are doing a vast amount of work if the pacing of hill* counts. The whickcy bills ore, perhaps, - creating more interest than any other. If there is one thing needful in .our State 'tis wise liquor legislation. The saloons are a curse and tho peo ple should have a voice in say ing whether the curse shall remain or not. The shooting of Editor Gon zales «of the Columbia State by Lieut. Governor Tillman, of South Carolina, is tho latest act of the notorious Tillmana, and justly deserves tho indig nation of an outraged public. The Tilhnans have disgraced the noble State in which they live. It is a matter of wonder why the citizens do not rise in their strength and cast these defders out. The noble Gonzales has last ed death, brave to the last/TTi.V murderer lies in jail and will meet the punishment .due liiin, ifSouth Carolinians d> their full duty. Below we copy«*tu article frointhc lii thin m l Timeswhich expresses the case clearly. I "'Tilhnanism Ins nga ii j brought Stite of Soutjpt Carolina iu'.o contempt. The Lieutenant-Governor of the State, Tillman by name ( armed himself with two revol- Ters and went q»t for blood He was at enmity with Edit or Gonzales, of the Columbia State, but the provocation W.M old. and so the act of the Lieu- j tenant-Governor was deliber ate. He violated the law first of all when he went on the streets with concealod weapons in Irs pocket. Then meeting' lus enemy in tho public sreets, a courageous, unarmed man. he fired upon him with u view of takig his life, lie shot u liolo through the editor's body and aras about to shoot again, .but h : s i«rv« teemed to fail him vrfien Gonzales JookeJ him in the face aud called hitu a cow ard and darp 1 him to shoot another bullet. >w— *lic«tefttfnt-Goveruor TiUrnan had jast jefi thj State House, where h&- tfid presided ovc-r{ \ the deliberations of the Senate. was there as one of the Jaw-makers of the State, he was there as a representative of law and order, he was there to help make laws for the peo ple. Yet he descended from that high position with pistols in his pocket, wer.t out upon I the street and attempted to mur ■ der a fellow citizen under of the r very shallow of the State House. ! Strangely enough th : s tragedy was tbo outgrowth of a person -1 al difficulty iu th Uuited States r Senate between Senator Mc- Laurin and Senator Benjamin > 1). Tillman, the uncle of the Lieutenant-Governor. r And so oue disgraceful act of ' the Tillinan family leads to an other. It seems to be a family of rowdies and bullies. Tillmanism has been a blight upon this noble State from the day that it thowed its ugly head. It is surprising to us that the good people of the State do not rise iu their might and crush it, and retire every man of the name public life." fNCONSCIors FROM CROUP.

(I'rorn our S;>ecial Correspondent. ( The Congress of the United States ttas been agitated tais.week by the coal i(tieslion. It has been coal, coal, coal" in both the Mouse anil the Senate ami the agitation cf t*>e •|uestion has shown tip the false pictense and hypocri y ol the re publican party ami the sincerity of' the democrats in t' cir endeavors to do some'liing in the interest of the people who are freezing to death I all over the north while the anth racite Coal barons are shoving up j the price and reaping the harvest of dollars. Ths agitation has re , suited in the elimination oLjhe ta- j rili of 67 cents a ton on anthracite C- al, which the republicans said, at the beginning of this session, ' should not be touched. As I have previously said in this nothing would! ever b. 1 done by the republicans in j the way of .1111T revision or reduc-J tion until the demand by the people j became so !otid that all might hear and this prediction has been veri fied by the results of this agitati n on the coal question. F.arly in this season a democrat, Mr. Cochran,of! Missouri, went to the chairman of] committee I>II Ways and Meansaml I asked him if he would give him a hearing for an argument on such j a bill as has just passed the Con gress. that is, th; repeal of the ta I rill 011 anthracite coal provided he J hwould tiling him a petitition from 1 aV majority of the members of the I House, regardless of politics, and was met .with the answer that j ho would better bring with hint a copy o! the Lord's prayer. In other j words, he «as turn* d down ij tf and C-ld and no of words and no appeals irom a democratic source K'oitld budge the re publican chairman * ho had charge of the late of the freezing people. Then Senate, through Senator Vest, o( Miisoyri. took up the mat ter Bi d was pressing it koine to the republican in such nt itiit r that cam; a'gn of the protected interests in Mr Aldtich.of Rhod Island saw th.t soot thing had to j lia done or he would lose control of his rcputdcan cjltoit* iu the Senate and give the democrats some good campaign material by allowing a I democratic measure for the relief of j tUt ppop'.e to go luough the Sen late Avht.b tl.e (Icuse could not af ( id> to turn d.wo. Il w uiied for tima and sahk'itere trnuitl t>e some thing doing in (his regard front a repub'i an q tarter aod that all measures affecting the revenues ct the government should originate iu ths ifojse, Sure enough the Sen ate, playing t u .e of politics while people freeze refused to Cjm\- , hider the Vest neasurc and allowed the House Committee on Ways and Means to bring in a bill taking the 1 tajiXT off coal for the period of one! ' J Mr . U>us making, ostensibly, a great show of interest for the wel fare of the people. The bill passed the House by a practically unani mous vote, every democrat in the House voting for it and the only six votes sgainat tne measure were from hide bound protect!olist re publicans. The bill was immediate ly rushed to the Senate and there it met a snag, as the republicans had beome alarme J and when it came up it was amended so that the ta riff on anthracite coal alone wis completely eliminated without ref erence to time, much to the aston ishment and chagrin of the ultra protectionists like Aldrich. It was rushed back to the House and the Senate amendment was concurred in amfd the cher rs and jeers of the democrats. They had compelled the republicans to swallow a dose of good democratic doctrine l»y knocking one hole in the protective tariff bill, and they had a yell com ing to them. 'I his is the beginning of the end. The people h£ve compelled this concession from the tariff barons and it ha? been rung from them by democratic contention and wl.cn the people start on the democratic road once they will not stop untd they have gone farther than this. Mark the prediction. * • a Another phase of this coal busi ness has been the exposition of the fake prom : ses cn the part of thi? administration to deal wi h the trust question. Loud and were the promises made by the Presid nt of the United States in the cam paign last fall that the trusts must be compelled and must obey tlie law of the land. How have those promises been kept? With the exception of a cou;>le of bluffs made at the beef trust and the Nor thern Pacific Railroad mergrrs, net one thing has been done an.l yet the evidence of the existence «t trusts have been tl-rust at the At torney General of the L'nited States only to be utterly ignored by that trust controlled official. At his own expense, Mr. William j Randolph Hearst t e editor and j proprietor the New Vork Ameiic.in, ! the Ch'cago American and the Sati Fransisco Kxamincr through his attorneys, gathered ampleevidence of the existence of the anthracite | coal trust and the combination of j the coal roads of Pennsylvania to convict them under the the Slicr- I man antitrust law both civilly and criminally,*- All litis evidence was . placed in the hands of t e District { Attorney in New Vork and he was {about to make a report of it to the 1 Alt iney General "cf the United Stilts when he was told t > hold the ! matter in abeyance in New Vork jand to tak'? no at.t.oll. It his been 111 his hands since the 50th day cf | last Octobe% arid could have been iu Washington in twelve hours at any tiine the authorises here might ask fur it Why lias it not been called for Why has t'.e Altorney !General not i.tkeV soni■ action? j When Senator Jones, of Arkansas lin the tcnate and Mr. Gaines, of reiincsse -, in the House, both . f fercd resoluli ns asking the evi dence presented by Mr. Hearst be furnifhed to the Congress for its inspection in or.:er that it mght pass judgment on the facts and as-1 certain whither Mr. Hearst had made.a good case. Tie majorities in both bedies promptly sent th se resolutions to the judi ciary committee whete they have t.cen pigeon holed and where they A' ill rot. They do not want any light shed Q" this question. 1 hey do not want tiia| evide .ee to get into the hands of competent law years. 1 hey know fn'.l well that Mr. H»arjt has n-ade out a good case and that the Attorney Gener al of the United Stales is respon sible, is guilty of crimtiWt! negli gence, 1; h - had taken action un der the law as it ej sts to day/on the evidence furnbhed him by Mr. tleatst, it would have obiviated this coal famjnc, it wo-jld have pre vented the c*tor|jonaie prices that have placed coal out o! the reaoh of the poor people of the country, thereby causing death and untold suffering. Who is respo is ble for this ? The on v artsw rlan be that It i* Jhe republican Attorney Gen eral of the b'nued States and the republican President of Ihe United States wLo fails Jto comp 1 this creature to a*t when the evidence is before him. He has sworn to execute the laws of the couotry. Has he done so in this instance ? I his sTenuous man, who, they »r. can do no wrong, and who. they say la so immensely popular A*er the country. They say he , «•*«» like other men, ; DO YOU GET UP WITH A LAME BACK? ] KMMi Trouble Hakes Ton Miserable. • Almost everybody who reads the news paper* is sure to know of the wonderful y _jj I. cures msde by Dr. .—i-ify ill Kilmer'sSwtmp-Root, i J 111 ths ereat kidney, liver C I li and bladder remedy.

If he made a mistake in this instance di I he intend it or not ? lie knew of the existence of this evidence produced by Mr. Hearst He was thoroughly informed of it all. If his Attorney General would i not act why did his master compel him to do so and thereby keep his| oath to execute the laws ? It is up to him to expalin all his anti trust vociferations on the stump last tall. If they were not merely the hot air moutnings of a street fakir selling soap from the tail gate of a wagon then he should compel his man, Knox to take some action at once on the evidence placed in his hand* by Mr. Hearst. 'I he truth is that the administra tion intends to do nothing to in jure the trusts which are its es pecial care at d in its keeping and the country owes a debt of grati tude to Mr. William R.
