A SECOND EMANCIPATION.
SO the Nesroea Construe the Decisions
of the Court.
The two decisions reuderl hy Unit.-i
States J udges Goff and aimonton at Colum
bla, 8. C, tho one ma'iin a free ballot anl
the other sounding the d..-ath-kn;!l of the
dispensary law, apparently have created a
big etir all over the State, and some pretty
wild talk is beins indulged in. The a Imiii
latration is more or worried.
For the present Governor Evans and tha
Etate authorities are paying no tt-:it'oa
whatever to tbe nitration matt.-r. Vs
Governor Evans has already Mi, he do.-s
not propose to call any extra f.ion of tiie
Legislature, or proctwd furth r in th n-'ie-tration
eases. However, yet, notliin h;is
been finally dec-Mod in n-ard to this matter.
The negroes regard the matter as a sof ond
emancipation, and the JlinLsterial Unio'i, re
cently formed, of which every wro minis
ter is a member, organized to fiht acain.t
their impending disfranehfsemeut, i.-ued an
address which thanks the attorneys in the
case and "the many friends of th.,- n-u'ro.-s in
their flht for emancipation from the tu-1

barred white and black aiiko from the exer

and injunction, and .studying up its effect, in

It became known that the administration
nnd dispensary authorities had decided to
take advantage of a peculiarity in the deeJh-
ion a necessary peculiarity n ord r to
evade the operation of Ju.l Sinr'tilon's
Injunction in certain eases, and to sav - the
constables from punishment for c ulcin; t of
court in cases when-such seizures -,vere made.
The order says that no liquor siuili be
molested in any way that is brought into iiie
Btate for individual use. Now the scheme i.j
to make the constables seize stutf that is s-ut
in where they think it is not for personal us--,
making them the judges. Then, it hauled no
for contempt they can net up the defence that
they were convinced that the stuif was for
other than individual use. And the sane
6cheme is to apply to searchers. This raises
a nice question. This is a plain statement of
the plan. How it will work is a matter fur
Judge tfimoiitou's consideration.
Carrying out this plan, the following circu
lar of instructions to constables was to-night
To Constables. Seize all liquor coining
into the Stat;; for other than p.T.-onal use.
Guard and watch "blind tigers" carefully,
and seize all liquor ia the possesion of
"blind tigers" or of those outraged iu the
illicit traftle of liquor.
The circular was ent out by tin-Slate

is tho chairman.

UNCONSTITUTIONAL, AS IS ALSO
The Registration LawAn Extra Set
felon of the Legislature. Probable
The decision ii? the registration case of '
M'l!s vs. Greer: was read by Judge Goff in j
the United States Circuit court at O.jumbia, j
S. C, on Wednesday. It was very 1-ngthy. j
D holds that the .-ourt has no juri'die-tt-b; I
that no official Sta'e or K?ticn?Jt is above th i
law; that as to f hr constitutionality of th !
registration law, that citizens ot a State are j
citizens of th United States, residing in that
State, and that Mills i3 such and that the i
plaintiffs claims are sustained by the dec I- j
s:on of the court; that the registration laws' ;
requirement of certificate"? is not arraete4 J
by the laT; that the repriotr!tion I4W Ls uo- .
constitutional iri?H.-h feioiirement; that the '
cortftitntlonAl act does not cure the defects; j
tha thfc whole laws are unconstitutional;
that the proceeding is not against the Stat;
that this court in a court of the state, as well '
aof the United States. Tho court therefor j
issues a permanent injunction.
Judge Simor.ton uext r.sd his decision ia i
tfc.; dispensary ca-e of Donalds V3 the 3tat i
co nst i Meg, declaring that lit court has jn
ri.viktioa that provisions of the dispensary I
law arc a violation of th- United States In- j
ter-trttu Commerce, and that th& issue if
KMiited us prayed for. j
TJtis decision will either result in an extra
Session of the lejriplature or an abandonment
oi the proposed constitutional convention
c.t'led to meet in 9 -pteml.er. The Jaws de
clared void include the entire registration
system of thri State. He also decided against
the dispensary law so far as it relates to
seizures of liquors shipped into the State-.
This decision will seriously effec t thedispen
sary as the hostility to it leads people to
ven pay more for .same goods in preference
to patronizing it. The cases of contempt
against State commissioner Mixon and two
co. isia'iles for seiz'ir"s in violation of Judge
G !f .- order were dismissed n view of dis
i.tiniers and apologies made.
Tho injunction Is an iron-clad one, the
meat of it being in the following:
"Ordered, adjudged and decreed that a
v.-rit of injunction be awarded aud do is.Sije
out of "this court, commanding and enjoining
ami restraining the defendants, M. T. lioUey,

said so imported for his use and consump
tion." 'As to tho dispensary," said Governor
Evans. "It will continue its operations as
heretofore, and th'.- ease will be push-'d to
tne Supreme Court of the United States as
speedily as possible. It is an absurdi'y to
argu" that Congress has the right to pass a
law giving to ttie State the right to absolutely
control whiskey brought into thetorders of
the S:at as though it were manufactured ia

perjured bar-keep.-r may maiutain it ia for
his own use and consumption."

HOW TO CULTIVATE TIIE WEED.
Lessons In the TobacAO Farm. Out
line! of the Process.
South Carolina tobacco, as a role, has been
best adapted for hhrh gnd wrappers and
for smoking tol-occo-. Ttvse reqdire the best
grade0 nPtUrolly; and the curing also Las ;
bad much to do with th- hish prices that j
nave be.'n paid for oout' Carolina tobacco.
Tobacco can be cured Lttwo ways, by cut
ting the leaves and curing on wires as tha
leaves ripen, and also Vy ntting down the
stalk, leaves and ail. and during differently
Somc wtat from thfc wire or steel process. It j
has been the rulw in Dar njjton and Florence j
eeurtie5 to Ollre oil the ii ;ks and wires, but j
ihis may perhaps be changed, as the large
manufacturers are now urging that tobacco i
shall be stalk cured. Th.. mode of curing I
is deemed so much more desirable by th I
manufacturers that Borne of them have in
structed their local buyers to adhere, as !
strictly as pible, to purchasing stalked j
cured to! a .- icy the'3-. The buyers of j
Wrapi.r I'.-wc i.wa j-nrtJ-'alarly instructed j
to purchase sralk-cured tobacco, and tho i
manufa-tii rSsay tl el test of this will j
clearly convince all of the .jperiority of this ,
to the w re-eured tobacoo,td they prophesy j
the early abandonment oi the curing by j
If it is desired to cure on the wires the
leaves are token from the plant asthey riien,
care beiag taken not to gather green leaves.
Thci arc placed in baskets and conveyed to
tl j curing barns and there strung on the
v ires, four to six inches apart, on each point J
acconling to size of leaf. Extra care must j
again be taken to avoid bruising or other- j
wise damaging tha leaves. The sticks are ;
th a hung in the tarns on tier poles, about
t veive inches apart, beginning at the top of J
fie barn and filling it. When the barn is !
Ullcd. which must be dune on the day the j
wood is consumed, close the ventilators, j
start a slow fire in tho furnace and gradually i
raise the temperature to 'JO 3 or 95 Fah- j
renheit. Hold the temperature at this heat
for twelve hours, which will toughen tho I
leaf, then advance the heat 2 an hour uu- j
til one hundred is reached. Again hold tho i
temperature ttationary for tw -lve hours,
then open ventilators and let the heat remain j
at 100 3 for six hours, whea the sweat will
be sufficiently dried oft and the tobacco will
be sufficiently colored to again advance tho !
he.it. Then advance the heat 1 ' per hour I
until 110 is reached in a sixteen-foot barn, j
and 150 is reached in a twwnty-foot barn. !
Hold at this temperature until the leaf is j
killed or cured, which will usually be in
about twelve hours. I
Close ventilators now and advance at 2J j
to 5 per hour until 170 is reached, then I
hold the ten p-rnture until the stemsorstalks j
are cured, wuieh will be about in eighty hours j
f rom the time thv3 barn was filled. Theu open j
the doors aDd the ventilators and let the barn J
cool. When the tobacco becomes soft enough
to fold the leaf so as not to break the small !
111. res in the leaf, then take the wires down,
strip off the leaves and carry them to the
pnek house and bulk it down, turning the !
tk's of the leaves iu and the butts out. Care
must here be taken not to have the tobacco
in too high "case" when it is taken down and
bulked, and that causes it to redden and
mold, which distracts materially from the
value of the tobacco.
The sums process of curing can be success
fully followed in btalk curing. As stated
before, some of the large manufacturers
prefer stalk cured tobacco, but there is no
reason why careful attention should not pro
duce oqnatiy satisfactory results by curing
with the wire process. Careful reflection
and talks with Darlington and Florence
county planters indicate decidedly that this
is the case. When tobacco 'f properly cured
it seems that it is evidently cared as well in
one of ihcsa ways as it is in the otner, and
the highest prices havs been paid for wire
cnre.t tobaeco during the past two seasons.
Stalk curing can only be successfully done
when all the leaves ripen at the same time,
aud this may or may not be the case. For
sonic reason, the large manufacturers, some
of them, at least, prefer the stalk cured to
bacco, and when a planter can do so it would
be v.-eit for h.rn to make the experiment for
himself a-i. I test the comparative, value of the
two processes. Let lum remember, in either
case, that he cannot be too careful when he
commences curing his tobacco.
Afie-the toiiucco has been cared aixl pack
ed away or "oulked down" in the pack barn
it should remain iu this condition until it is
decided to M-H it. When the planter de-M
tobacco to the warehouse for
sab) he should have ever-thii!g carefully pre
; :i.-.-il ot io!v!ianl. While the toba-vo is in
the pack bam it snould be carefully gradel.
and this is not hard to learn. This is done
by carefully assorting the leaves of uniform
-iV.e. color anil texture in separate piles.
Then the leaves must be tied up in "hands'
ni from six to twelve leaves in each hand.
I a arranging or assorting these different
g-a.les it '-important that each grade be kept
separate ua-i uistiuci. Tiie diiTerent gr;ides
may i-e hung on the stick or may be bulked
as th. planter may prefer. It is not a diffi
cult process to grade tobacco properly, as
the leaves that most resemble each other are
not bard t get together. The colored hands
taiva to toli.i- i-o culture naturally, und seem
to like it very much. In several instances
a-!:oi.g th" planters of Darlington and Flor
in -e counties colored men do the grading
entirely after having hail some experience in
cu'dng an.l bulking the tobacco.
Toi-a-co is n t sold as is auy other agricul
tural pro he t in South. Carolina. After the
farmer has graded it he carries it to the
near.'-.-t a id iwst warehouse. The proprietor
meets hi..; aud his tobacco, along with any
other tat mav have been carried to the ware
house tnat lay. is pla ed in piles ad ever tee j
1'oor. -a-h piii-belonging to a different own- 1
er, wnose na r.e is placed on it. When every- j
tiling is rcalv the auctioneer commences j
wor... the buyers gather around, and the live- j
lost kind of bidding is seen. The name of the i
highest bidder and the number of pounds of i
t..t ;i in eiich pib he buys is attached to a .
card, at-. ' th" sellers may accept or rej.vt any j
bid tnat is ma le. The auctioneer continues ;
until everv lot has N-en sold, ami after this ;
!:.xs Ufa done the buyers and sellers get to- J
get her for a s tt lenient. I
It has U-en thoroughly and pra.-tically j
il moe.-tratc l that toOac-o culture ia South
Cm-iina is a sue--ess. The planters of Dar-
bngton and Florence counties have ei-tab-
sh -1 this fact, and they have had diffkrul- a (option of the tithing system by the mem
ies in doing so. At no time has the work t."rs .,f tre ir ehur -h-s.
1--a ensv. and at many stages it was raoM I
dis -ouraging. There is no doubt ;
that great car must be taken in almost ;

SECOND DAT. j
The second day's proceedings of the South- j
ern Baptist Convention were begun with J
prayer by Kev. Dr. Lofton. ;
The report of the committee on tithing was ,
read by ltev. F. M. Ellis, of Brooklyn. Tho j
report among other things said :
"Great as has been the success of the Con- I
vention for the past fifty years, her diseour- j
agetfieuts aud struggles have at times been I
such as to test the faith and endurance of her j
most faithful friends and staunehest leaders j
in the very -ru ible of financial embarrass-
meats. These oft-repeated embarrassments j
were not caused for want of numbers nor for i
want of wealth. We have the numerical i
strength, the intelligence and the wealth, j
Tiies' oft-recurring embarrassments are evi
dently th? natural results of our defective
lina-i -ial system. 1
"Your committee believe that full relief i
neei not b hor.-.l for until our church mem- ,
! individually and voluntarily adopted ;
tho scriptural systematic plan of paying to
Go 1 at least one-tenth of their income. Then j
we believ the mcaos will be available 'for
all the purposes of Christ's kingdom.' We
arc sons and daughters of God. not slaves j
and serfs. What duty can be more plain, !
simple, just and practical than God's law of I
the tenthy Ail can give a tenth, no matter j
how poor. Is not this law as important as it I
ever was? Consecrating wealth is coreren- j
tr.iting power. If a tenth of the Jew's in- ;
come and a seventh of Uis time was not too .
much to ask of him. is it too much to ask of i
the Chri.-tianV Is ours a lower standard than I
was the JewY'.' Will tbe Christian excuse j
himself for what was robbery of God in a j
Jew? Th ; tenth is sacredly God's liefore ;
aught is claimed for ourselves or for others. ,
"Your eoinmittee recommends the adopt- 1
ing of the tithing system, and that our sever- j
al State Conventions, district associations, '
the p-istors, churches and missionary socie- j
ties increa-M their efforts to educate our peo- j
pie in paying systematically to God not less 1
than one-t-nl h of their income."

oat and corn, or crushed wheat with hot

qii uttity of th- medicine. J
Animals that ftre very sick and will not
con.e to the feed should be drmched with j
tii-4 medicine -hak-n up with water. Great j
care -hotil l be .xcr -i.-ed in drenching hogs
or they will he sufioci:td. Do not turn the
hog on its back to drench it, but pull the
cheek away from the teeth, so a? to forma j
pouch Into which the medicine may be slow- ,
Ir poured, It will rlow from the cheek into
th mouth, and when the he find oat what ;

our exerieuce ho-gs which were sick thflt j
thev would eat uotLiug have commenced to !
eat very soon alter getting a dose ot the rem- j
edy, and bave steadily improved until they
appeared perfectly well.
This medicine may nUo be used n a pre

,...s aVi..nl,l tw i.nt in ih feed rf ih witol.i
I i herd. Care should ol course be observed to
see that each animal receives its proper share.
In canes where it has been given a fair trial
it has apparently cured most of the animals
which were sick and has stooped the pro-j
press of the disease in the herds. It also ap
pears to be an excellent appetizer and timu-
fnt of the nro -es-LS of digestion and sim-
ilation. and when given to unthrifty hogs it
increases the appetite and causes them to
take on flesh and assume a thrifty appear
ance. During the administration ot the medicine
hygienic treatment should be most carefully
observed, The hogs should be kept dry and
free from exposure to drafts ol air. The
p'ns in which the disease first appears should
be thoroughly disinfected by dustiug with
"dry air-slaked lime" or by using a 5 per
cent solution of carbolic acid.
The diseased hogs should, if possible, be
kept apart from the healthy, and their pens
should be frequently disinfected by one of
the above mentioned methods. As au addi
tional precaution I would suggest that the
water given the hogs lor drinking purposes
be guarded against contamination by the re
fuse from the Finally, bogs which
have died during the prevalence of the dis
ease should be immediately burned or buried
