A conflict similar to that which we
have witnessed iu this State, has arisen iu
Sonth Carolina between tho State and
the Federal Courts, growing out of exact
ly the same state of uffahs. A number of
revenue officers have been arrested and
are now held in custody of the State au
thorities for offence, alleged to have beeu
committed by them while they were, as
claimed, in the discharge of their official
duties. Motions to transfer the case to
the Federal Court have been made and
theae have been denied by Judge Ker
shaw, who, iu an elaborate opiuiou, de
cides that they must be held subject to
the action of the courts. The commis
sioner of internal revenue, at Washington,
has leen advised of the conflict, and at h
.-..: ... - t l i.
while determined i cm,"u ,a,,mi ,," "' aiwhiivj
General Devens, held on iliursday last,
it was determined to take issue at once
with Judge Kershaw's decision. The
Washington correspondent of the Balti
more Sun says that under section 642 of
the revised statues instructions will be is
sued to the United State district attor
ney and marshal for South Carolina to
take the necessary steps to recover pos
session of the revenue officers now held
in custody of the State courts.
We have no idea that the State author
ities will tamely back down from their
decision in this case. They will take steps
to test the question before-the proper tri
bunal. Exactly the same question is now
before the Supreme Court of tho United
States iu the case of the State vs. lloskins,
which was carried up ou a writ of error
from the Supreme Court of North Caroli
na. A decision of this case will decide all
others in which the same principle is in
volved, but until the highest judicial tri
bunal known to onr laws decides that.
Stat court have no jurisdiction over the
offences of revenue officers it is neither
wisenor patriotic for the States to yield.
They wast maintain their sovereignty
and their rights as States, remembering
that to yield in this is a long step toward
the abandonment of tho principle of local
self-govern ment. Charlotte Observer.

A WELL TOLD STORY.
A Hide as Was a Ride.
Hi Moore enjoys a good ride behind a
prancing steed as well as any one iu these
diggins, but since his ride with Harry
Lesher when that gentleman's horse prov
ed such a clipper in tossing theni out by
the way side, Hi has been a little suspi
cious of the. kind of a vehicle that lie rides
in, bat on the Fourth he was up at the
depot and leiog in a hurry to get dowu
town to gather iu the dispatches from the
Hippodrome at Louisville, he thought
that he would attempt a ride in the 'bus,
that was just then about to start, with
Charley Lincoln and "Lutzy'1 Purtcher
for passengers. Hi knew that the only
successful way to tip him out of that was i
to tip him the wink for soda, and the oth
er fellows don't tip that way. He toid
Charley Pangle to let the horsos travel at
their best gait for he was in a hurry.
Charley always does just as he is told to
do. He was never known to fail doing
the reverse. If he is ever drowned they
will find him uot ouly up stream, but the
chance are that he will be sitting on the
bank fishing for suckers. This time he
was true to nature, and when Hi stepped
in Charley mounted the box, got a good
grip on the door-strap, and let the horses
walk just as fast as they could through all
the principle alleys in town, and for two
hours and a half tlie boys begged aud im
plored him to give them a rest. They
tired aa it were, of scenery con
sisting of back-door yards and garden
truck, and there wasn't a knife in the
party to cat the strap Charley never
struck a street once during the entire ride
except to cross it to another alley. Hi
will now, when he wishes to go any place,
and is in hurry, walk part of the dis
tance and foot it the balauce. Allen Co.,

tain quantities" who perambulate the
country and impose themselves' on the

val Miss Alnaeda Hanna, whose former
home was in Virgiuiti, but who has for
some time been living with her uncle.
Squire Irvine, of Sugar Creek, went to the
gallery to have photographs taken, and
there Massou improved the opportunity
to form her acquaintance and so aitfully
did he pay his addresses that he wou her
consent to a marriage before be had
known her a week. Ou Tuesday, the 25th,
he obtained the marriage liceuse and the
knot was tied by Rev. E. A. Berry on the
same day, notwithstanding the earnest en
treaties of Mr. Irvine's family to have ii
jHistponed until inquiries could be made
as to his character. In the light of events
that have since transpired it is a pity that
a knot wasu't tied around his neck and a
few hearty stretches over a lamp post giv
en him. After the marriage, he took his
bride to Findlay, putting up at the Joy
House, aud the next day after their arri
val he made- excuses to go to Fostoria on
bnsit;cK.s, and left his wife 'to await bis
leturn. It bus proved a wear waiting
for 'her, for up to date he has not return
ed, and probably uever will. If report
of Massou arc true tie has a wife and fam
ily somen here in Indiana, and if saeh is
the case, the young lady is in the unenvi
able position of being neither lnsnl, wife
nor widow, but swells the list of victims
of man's villainy aud lust. From a pho
tograph of the young lady "seen at Krauss'
gallery, she appears to - be a rather good
looking, intelligent girl and would hardly
bo selected as one who would take the
rash step she has. That she bitterly re
grets the net is evidenced .by the fact that
she would be still welcome in the family
of Mr. Irvine, but she chooses rather to
remain among strangers where her mar
riage in haste can be repented t leisure.
She came here Saturday, got what clothes
she had left here, and on Monday she re
turned to Findlay where she has obtained
employment at the Joy Honsc. Allen Co.,

A DEATH-GRAppLF. WITH A PAN
From the ottowa Free Press.
Last week a hunter named Jacob Far
qnarsou, whilo 'passing through the forest
betweeu White Fish Lake and Black
Trout Lake, near the headwaters of the
Madawaska river, encountered a puma,
or American panther. While looking at
the remains of a large upland cariboo, he
heard a noise at some distance off among
the tree-tops. Shortly afterwards the
sounds were repeated and on looking up
saw a large animal leaping from tree to
treetoward the spot where, he stood. 'Ho
was armed with a Ballard rifle, and a.
soon as the beast came near enough he
fired. The brute sprang from the tree
directly at him. Ia the meantime the
hunter had rapidly reloaded, and having
jumped aside and behind a large pine be
fore the infuriated animal could recover
for a second spring, he gave it another
ballet. Both shots had taken effect, as
was afterward discovered, but neither ia
a vital part. After the second shot the
puma turned and darted with a roar at
the hunter, who drew a long, keen-edged
hunting knife, and with his back against
a tree awaited his enemy. The euragwl
animal sprang at him aud fastened its
long curved claws into his shoulder. He
drove the knife repeatedly to the hilt into
its breast. Both came to the ground to
gether, but the struggle did not last long,
for the huge animal weakened by the loss
of blood from the bullets aud tfio knife of
Farquarsoa, soon turned over dead. The
animal, which ia rare in Canada now,
was oue of the largest size, measuring nine

men. "Lack," says an able writer, is ever
waiting for something to turn up ; labor,

Luck whines ; labor whistles. Luck relies
on chance ; labor on character. Luck slips
downward to self indulgence ; labor strikes
boldly upward, .and aspires to independence."
