Abbeville Press and Banner (Newspaper) - May 30, 1888, Abbeville, South CarolinaThe press and Banner. Abbeville . I wednesday May 30, 1888. The editor of the Abbeville press and Banner is pleased that he is alone id open opposition to the establishment of a separate agricultural ollege. Time he says will prove the correctness of Bla position that the agricultural ollege is not needed and that such a institution must be an utter and absolute what objection can our contemporary have to the establishment of the College if the formers of the state desire it they ought to be As capable of knowing whether they need such an institution As does brother. The obstacle of expense in its establishment has been partially removed if not entirely so by the bequest of or. Clemson. And if the Farmers want a col Lee for the Benefit of their children Hill or elsewhere for that matter to be maintained by the taxes paid into the state Treasury in great part by the Farmers themselves Why should the press and Banner interpose an objection or throw an obstacle in its Way the Farmers assembled in state convention As Well As in numberless club meetings throughout the state have asked the people of South Carolina to give them such a College and we Are heartily in favor of its Hill Herald. We think Weare not understood. We think the greatest objection to the agricultural Coll Gelies in the fact that it is on impractical which will certainly bring disaster. We care no More for the Money that will be wasted on that Enterprise than we do for the 914,000 which is thrown away on the military. Bat we do object to establishing a College which All experience has proven must be a delusion and which must cause the worthy youth of this country to fritter away one or More years of the Best part of their life. It takes concentrated Effort to succeed at any thing. The Farmers will of course succeed in establishing the agricultural College if any of or. Clemson s estate is left after the lawyers get done with it but suppose the College a established and endowed with sufficient Cap ital to give Captain Tillman and other leaders to the movement with Nice places in the faculty without any Cost to the tax payer the boy who would go to thu school would do n very foolish thing. It is the Wate of the boys time and the Nan w and contracted views which he must imbibe to which we object. A Hoy to us oozed ought to go to the front and be a Man among men rather than a Leader in a More circumscribed position. Suppose Calhou nand Mcduffie had gone to an agricultural College. They had an agriculture l institution in their own county and at their very doors. The Preu and Banner objects to the assigning of our Farmer s sons to second class colleges. In the Days gone by they stood at a t it their number came states Iuo a Uruu a men. Judges lawyers doctors Farmers. Shall Tate boys of to Day be practically denied the privilege of ailing these High places by energies and wasting the heyday of their lives at agricultural colleges we do not believe the sons of Abbeville Farmer would go to the agricultural College 11 established. They take front seats. The Pren and Banner opposes the agricultural College on the ground that some of the leaders in the movement May become tax eaters instead of if there i such a thing As tax eating going on who has a better right to such delicious food than the Wermers or the state 1.florence times. Oar neighbor and Friend does not under stand is. We object to the state making appropriations to support private College As our Friend would oppose a proposition to give Ersk no College 940,000 a year. The Clemson College la a private institution which the state has no right to support a Long As it denies Aid to other colleges which have just As Good claims on the people a have the Farmers. An agricultural College is based on an explode theory. An agricultural educate Oral institution has been an Experiment in Abbeville county for a Hundred years. Its doors Are closed. If the agricultural Annex at Colu Biais a fraud the agricultural College would seem to be a cheat. There is no Royal Road to either wealth or learning and the poor boy s lot is a hard one. But his prospects in life cannot be improved by sending him off to College to learn to dig ditches to grub roots or to plug Green of paying his Board at Colleg and tuition fees for scientific teachers in the Art of burning Brush and scattering stable manure the old Man or some of the neighbors can give the boy lessons and wages too. If the boy can get a literary education he will and the doors of half dozen colleges open to blk where he will be gladly Welcome with or without Money. If a school la established for Farmers Why not establish one for the Brick layers and one Tor the blacksmiths ? As a matter of fact we presume the press. And Banner is about As True a Friend to the Farmers As those who May assume to run on no other virtue than that of Bamboo Ling the Farmers by making them believe that some of their neighbors Are enemies to the human in a few instances. The Linton Enterprise. Prom the Lauren Tville Herald we learn that some of the citizens of Clinton Are inclined to reflect on colonel Crews for discontinuing the publication of a newspaper at that place from which Many of the business Bouses bad withdrawn their advertising. It May be remembered that the press and Banner said at the outlet that the publication of that newspaper would never be a paying business there was Only one thing for the publisher to do when the advertising was withdrawn. And that was to Stop its publication. The Enterprise was one of the very Best papers of the kind in the state but it could t live without support. If the citizens of Clinton would do As our friends at Greenwood have done they could have bad the paper still. When the publishers of the Greenwood a Yijune became con .4imjad that the paper was not sustaining Nomee was Given that the paper would Stop unless material Aid was Given. Parties interest Din the welfare of the town we believe immediately came to the Rescue by making no 160 a month in advertising. With an advertising patronage of 860 a month the Tribune will be published indefinitely. If Tao citizens of Clinton bad acted in this Way we presume there would now be no complain against colonel Crews on account of stopping the paper. It Wou a have been a paying investment and the paper under such conditions would have gone on forever. The salary of judge. Or. E. T. Slack House of Little Rock s. A write to the Marion Star referring to the exl Oess Lve salaries which we pay our judges and suggests that $1,000 be Cut off of from the salary of each. This would save 811,006 a year and would not cripple our Bench. We would get just a Good men As we now if those now on the Bench should refuse to be reelected under the reduced course no Law would effect the salary of those who Are in office. If the Able writer to the Marion Csisar a oui advocate the election of the Best men for of whether he was in of. Tic or would do a still Turt Lier service. The sentiment Onoe a judge always a judge in South Carolina Mua yield to Justice. Aftera Man Baa ceased to be Able to discharge the duties of judge he Baa no right to draw bit salary and he has no right to claim a judges Are unfit unable or incapacitated in any Way let them stand aside just As other officers do. The world or. Henry Clay Lueins of new York Well Bownas a first class newspaper Man Bas come to Charleston and is now in control of the Dally world. The world is a Good newspaper but is Little known in these Parte for the reason that no one Bas Ever been Here to press 1u claims although we have been asked about Charleston s new Dally. The world is an enterprising newspaper always readable and entertaining. Eight pages 17. V ii i. Ii pension Cheeks inconvenient. Col. Assmann clerk of court has several pension checks still in his hands for the payment of the april instalment for the Soldier Sand widows who have been granted pensions in this county. It would be More convenient for these parties if it was so arranged by the comptroller general that the clerks of court could pay the checks issued directly to these individuals instead of giving them the checks. They have within our knowledge been put to great inconvenience in having these Check dispatch. Clerk Zeigler or his assistant or. L. D. Conner and the pensioners of this county have been put to an incalculable amount of trouble because of the checks. Why not let the county treasurer pay them ? Greenville s big time. The rally ones have Given for the Greenville gala week the lowest rates Ever Given on such an of one cent a mile going and coming. The City is making great preparations and the week will be historic. Abbeville will be there in great numbers to swell the crowd of spectators. And to extend Good will and Good Wasbes for the Atlanta of South Carolina. The new Railroad from that City is being pushed toward Knoxville and when completed it will make Greenville seconding importance Only to the City of Charleston. We notice that the coloured democrats Are dying out in All parts of the state. We do not see exactly Why a dead negro s politics should be deemed of sufficient importance to publish his political Creed unless it be As a warning to other negroes not to join the democratic party. It seems now most of the democratic negroes Are dead. Thirty two years ago. We were in Laurens one night last week the guest of editor Crews of the Herald. Leaving Columbia at 1.40 p. M. We arrived at6.26 o clock going by Way of the Laurens Railroad. The Railroad from Newberry to Laurens has been greatly improved since we travelled overt in 1836. The farms along that Road show evidence of Thrift and Prosperity and the farms were pleasant to look upon. By far the pret tie8t town on the Road is Annton the Home 01 the Thorn Well orphanage and a Trade Centre where Active energetic business men Supply he wants of the surrounding a is to Laurens what Greenwood is to this is the highest Praise that we could give any town. Viewing the Tow from the cars we saw massive Brick and Concrete structures on the Public Square an Beautiful residences and Church Spires in Al directions. The Bank was a prominent the Railroad were immense piles of Small Rock in readiness to be put in a Large building. We have Long been impressed with the excellence and cheapness of Concrete Walls in localities where plenty of rocks May be easily had. Concrete Walls Are said to be equally us Strong As Brick wans Ana much More enduring than Walls made of cheap Brick. The Rock May be hauled with As 111tlecost As Brick and we presume the Concrete May be put in the Wall much cheaper than the Brick can be Laid. We have plenty of Small rocks hereabouts and we Woula like Tor some one to follow the example of Clinton and build a Bouse of Concrete Walla the town of Laurens shows every evidence of Prosperity. Great numbers of new elegant mansions to Many lots in Ever part of the town. The Public Square present san array of Beautiful fronts. The court House stands in the Centre somewhat after the fashion of Abbeville court the Centre. The railroads which Centre there or run by has Given the town a new lease of life and All its citizens have caught inspiration and the town has waited up from its sleep and prospers and grows apace. The effect of the railroads on the town has been As marked As the rejuvenating influence of Patent Medicine son the disease stricken life despairing Hope deserted citizen who survives to writing. Owing to the Peculiar circumstances Abbeville will watch the result with interest. Once for All. The clerk of court publishes state Menti in reference to Pentti onh. Enquirers after pensions answered the Best. I can in the Hope tha tall will see and realize that i cannot control the pension Board in Columbia any More than i can Boss the Man in the Moon in his work. Inquiries come to m frequently both orally Aud through the mails to this effect i Don t see mrs. A s and mrs. B s name among the list of Lucky pen stoners in the papers. Please Tell to How All i can Tell is this i have arranged every applicant s paper As directed by the pension act and Given to the widowed Apoll j cants in every instance my Hearty endorse ment of their claims and recommended pay ment without a single exception. How they discriminate i am just As unable to Tell As the pensioners themselves or any one else. I Nave always said that the widowed applicants of our county Are All destitute and should be cared for and also All destitute soldiers who have Losta limb or rendered unable to earn a living and i have acted in Good Faith according to that belief and rather than put die least hindrance to the consummation of this worthy purpose i would willingly have my tuxes doubled or even quadrupled out when the people undertake to hold me responsible for the Success or failure of the claimants As it appears after i have discharged my duty so fully in every Branch of that sacred Trust pay ing out at least one Hundred and fifty dollars to parties to do my office work that i might do this work the More effectually and going to Columbia mostly in that interest at my own expense that i might deliver the record sin person and take receipts that there could be no Chance of their getting misplaced to say nothing of postage used in sending and receiving Blanks before i could get them in shape yet i did it willingly and am still working on the same lice entirely disregard ultime or Money in behalf of the faithful and worthy heroes of the noblest and grandest cause though lost that patriots Ever fought and died for and then for Rome to intimate that probably i might have been a Little remiss it seems it Little like adding insult to injury and let me in closing say that Hope All entitled to this tribute from the state will get it but i do not know who will or who will not get it nor do i know the reasons of the Columbia Board for their decisions.

The military company at this place drilled on the Public Square last monday evening and a better looking company of men is not to be found anywhere. Belr drilling was excellent. The company so to speak moved As one Man. An election was Neld in the armory and the old officers were re elected except in the Case of lieutenant Lythgoe who is away from town filling the office of stenographer Tor the Augusta exposition.

Fresh lot at j. F. Millar s. J or. Benet in Atlanta. Interesting report of his recent speech in that City. Atlanta Constitution. The lecture of Hon. W. Benet delivered at delve s opera House ia9t night for the Benefit of St. Luke s Church was a Brilliant Success. The audience was Good. The House should have been crowded. Seated on the stage were mayor Cooper major Livingston mems. Rev. Or. Chaney Rev. Or. Barrett and or. Donald Bain. The distinguished speaker was gracefully introduced by Rev. Or. Barrett. Or. Barrett stated that the orator was thoroughly equipped for the handling of his Bull and that a Rich treat would be Laid before the audience. When or. Benet stepped to the front of the stage he was greeted with Hearty . He is a handsome Man of about thirty five of medium height has dark hair heavy Lightbrown Mustache and easy bearing. He read his lecture and read it remarkably Well. He spoke about two hours holding the closest attention of his audience throughout with his wit Wisdom depth research instruction and magnificent rhetoric. The lecture May be described As a literary historical and intellectual feast garnished with wit satire Apt illustration and pure dec too. It was too elaborate for reproduction in a newspaper notice and even the striking feature presented below can give but a glimmering dear of its finish Beauty and Power As a whole. Or. Benet began by saying that he had never delivered a lecture. He had been startled to find that he was advertised to Delivera lecture. The word lecture was a did not intend to speak to the audience in the sense of lecturing them As Caudle had been lectured. This was the first time that be had Ever spoken in Public for Money and even now he was speaking for the Benefit of St. Luke s Church. John Bull and Jonathan was his subject. He would u6e the names As typical of England and America. Twenty years ago he came to thl country to study America. He liked it 60 Well that head concluded to remain. Before the late War Between the greatest civil War which Hud Ever been knew Little of America of the Topography of this country of her grand mountains and valleys and lakes. But since that War England had com to freely acknowledge the greatness of America. Edmund Burke one of England s greatest statesman with his far seeing prophetic Eye had predicted the greatness to which America would attain. He saw this greatness in his mind s Eye As far Back As 1872. Before the late War England s ignorance of America was dense. Alter thut War the tide of travel from England set Westward. Tourists travellers emigrants came Over to see the great new country and the speaker came with them. On a Village Green in the North of Scotland he has heard the great struggle Between the american Stales discussed. He Hud seen men get Black eyes and bloody noses in these discussions for Lee and of Grant in Scotland As Well is in America. He spoke of the Southern confederacy As that Short lived nation which arose so White and fair and fell so pure of crime which s Nti ment was greeted with tremendous and prolonged applause. The speaker said that be knew much ofo.i1 Fah manuf asunder two countries which god Hado ined together. Applause English people were not foreigners to America americans were not foreigners to had tried for Twenty years to and out if he was a foreigner in America and if he was had never been Able to and out. Applause he condemned in Strong language the practice of the majority of the English writers who have Given them impressions of America and american writers who have written about England As a Rule they had fallen into the Haltof magnifying local eccentricities into National faults and the sensational press was guilty of the same bad taste. Old Samuel Johnson had once Caid that Amer leans deserved Little less than hanging Lor their uncivilized ways and not Long ago an american editor had warned miss Chamberlain against marrying an engr Lynman because of the brutal manner in which englishmen treat their wives. Both worn wrong somebody had asked Mathew Arnold on his first visit to this country if he did not intend to write a Book on America. Arnold replied that his Brief tour afforded him but Steht Opportunity to study America and it would be an impertinence to write under the circum51fill c68. What a pity it is that Dickens Trollope find a Host of others did not take the same View. Alas that Arnold did not stick to his View and spare us his impression of he then showed How the average English writer on America cult sized everything he saw in a Way favourable to England and gave illustrations of How american a rotters on England English Silver Wendel Homes and Richard Grant White were exceptions to this Rule. They wrote of England in a genial and kindly English writers never failed to touch upon the negro question particularly in the presence or Southern people they knew nothing of the negro except what they had read i books while the knowledge of the Southern people on the subject had come from experience and common sense. Richard Grant White had paid that american women were than English women but that English women were More lovable than american women. This was delicate and dangerous ground. Doe thing was certain. In the contest the Olden Apple must be awarded to the women of the Southern states for All English speaking worn in they Are the fairest and loveliest applause.1john Bull and Jonathan wer Brothers. General Grant had said England and America Are natural allies and should always be the Best of the speaker then gave a graphic historical sketch of the Anglo Saxon race showing How begin Long to move Westward in the fifth Century it Nad swept everything before it and a length established its powering England. Its next move was upon America where the aborigines had fled before its Power. Monarchies May perish. Republics May pass the Anglo Saxon race will move on. Of ail inferior races the negro Lias been Able to see me angst Saxon Nice Anu live. He alone of inferior races has been Willingto accept the position to which and assigned him. Thus has he escape the doom of Tho inferior there can be no amalgamation of the Anglo Saxon and the negro. Pride of race will forever prevent it. The Anglo Saxon race unlike the latin races never intermarried with inferior races. America is now the Centre of the wealth and Commerce of English speaking people. It will one Day be the Centre of Power. The speaker closed by eloquently forecasting the future of Anglo Saxon race. The Day is coming when there will not be room in America for the Anglo Saxon. He will not move to the North nor to the tropical South. He will stick to the temperate zone As he has always done. He will Cross the Pac Lff to Chin and Japan. Though those nations struggle never so Well they will go Down before the Anglo Saxon in his grand Anarch Westward he Wil trample All races under his feet or put them ont of his Way and the Anglo Saxon race will in the end gird the Earth with its possessions As it 1c now girded with its applause if the Iron come Nail it Down.

And others adjourned to it tent near by in the spacious grounds where a most sumptuous repast was spread and to which hungry men did ample Justice. Such an entertainment is indeed a rarity Reightor nine Hundred men fed with the riches viands in most profuse abundance by one person is not a common occurrence. This Man our Host amassed a Large Fortune is a leading Man among the friends both he and his wife preaching at their meetings. Their daughter married 11 or.

The first presbyterian Church in America was at Jamaica Long Island in 1662. There had been a schism of Long standing in the presbyterian Church accompanied with the usual bitter feeling which War fortunately healed by the organization of the first Assembly. Foolish division shave Ever been a characteristic of presbyterians. About the Only apology i can offer for it is that they have More to fight about than other denominations.

The Atlanta journal says that it is reported hat a movement is on foot to defeat senator Colquitt and that already a distinguished Cit zen of Georgia has been agreed on As the of to this the yews and courier adds there s really no reason for alarm. Senator Collu Ittis a rather hard Man to defeat judging a the Way in which he handled the recent convention in Georgia and it is presumed hat he and his friends Are not senator Colquitt is an Able Man intellectually and As a senator and otherwise a red it to his state. But we hardly think it Ery complimentary to the recent Conven Ion in Georgia to speak of the Way it was handled by the Junior senator. Male con eur tons of late Are not above suspicion it s True but we Are not willing to believe that senator Colquitt or any other Man or dozen Aen could Load or did Lead the recent coned Ionin Georgia about by the ears.

Matthews silk stator t Tiik new York store in Greenwood is the sensation of the Day. Customers come to it t pm the four Quai tire of the Earth. T to 1 do judges come to the Rescue of murders ? a the prese and Bonner replies t he Columbia record. Last week we wrote an Deltoral tit which we intended to commend the action of judge Kershaw in refusing bail to a White Man woo Hud killed a negro. It was the first instance r of the kind of which we remembered where Atman for a similar offence had been Pat to much More inconvenience than that of employing a lawyer to go with him to a judge for Ball and afterwards attending court where the jury might promptly acquit him of All guilt or blame in the matter and we thought judge Kershaw s action highly corny bendable. Ilind you we did not say that no White Man has been punished for killing a negro but we do say that we have no recollection of any such fact of Ming to oar neighbor the Columbia record copied what we said and commented on our article. As we understand the Reata a that paper in aiming at exactly the rame object for which the Preu and Banner is Only difference being thai the record adopts one method and i be Preu and banna1 takes another route. The record deals in generalities and never once attempts to show exactly where the Preu and Banner is wrong. The record says it is a common thing for those whom we Call the Public to form an Ophalon of a Case As the Case in first Given in the new spa. Pers and to be very much astounded to find that a jury acting under the Sanction of an oath take a Dlf Lerent View. The jury men act under a responsibility. Their critics unfortunately Are responsible to this talk about the Public being inferior to jurors is somewhat autly rated. The juries Are presumably taken from among the people and Thoi e of our citizens who May attend court and be As Well informed or the facts As the jurors themselves May forma reasonably Correct opinion. Because a jurors under oath is no reason or excuse for bin. Returning a verdict contrary to the Katf and the record talk of juries doing their duty and the Lack of evidence to convict a Ftp go Lor nothing if a jury commission can draw a jury for the purpose of rendering a particular verdict. The record says we Aro sure that every one of our judges has Tuku pains to hold the Scales of Justice a in even poise and at every stage of any Judi Cla proceeding to ignore every distinction Between men on account of race color or stationing a. We would not gainsay one word of that agree with every word of it and would go further and say that each and every on of the judges stands the peer of any Man in any stale. But for All that there seems to be evidence that different judges take different views of the enormity of crime. Our neighbor no doubt remembers that the Railroad trains about Greenville were robbed a year or two ago. We believe a negro and a White Man wore in argue Wii in of ouch. Xuy juror duty and convicted both. The negro received years in the White Man appealed was tried again and convicted a second time. His Bente acevas two years in the Penitentiary. Will the record claim that there were Dlf Ferent degrees of guilt or that one judge considered done robbing of a train with five time the enormity that his brother judge considered the same offence the tracks Poi t in a certain direction. The record says we cannot admit that our courts do not " look with Dos Vor upon the net of killing negroes and White for Olga labourers we do no believe that any judge in Booth Carolina has Ever come to the Rescue of murderers " 1 we think the court records will show that our judges have done exceeding Little to Dos � courage the kill Lugof any sort of people. The question As to whether any judge in bout Carolina has Ever come to the Rescue of murderers must be determined by a definition of the meaning of the term. That judge have Given nominal Ball to almost everybody who has slain a fellow being we presume will not Hahan live that in Manv Oise Ball wan sought chiefly for the purpose of using the fact in vindication of the accused we presume will not be denied. That Small Ball or. Ball of any sort has had the effect of breaking Down sentiment against the accused will we presume not be denied. If theore going propositions Are admitted then we submit that it cannot be successfully denied that some South Carolina judge have gone to the Rescue of of course everything depends on the meaning of . We contend however that the South Carolina judges Are not blameless in the matter of giving easy Ball to murderers. The record says but that there is or Ever has Beeh the con Dot Lono things which the Preu and Banner alleges to have existed we Are not yet prepare to but no proof is brought to Controvert a till Gle statement. Ii our brother will produce any evidence or facts to show error on our part we will be glad to be convinced to his Way of thinking. It is useless to deny that there is race Reju Dic. It is useless to assert that the crime of murder has been properly punished in South we believe the record admits As much. Will any Man deny a belief that Justice has n Enma inn Ancas. Miscarried because the juries were fixed. Even though the prets and Banner be in error the Public morals and the safety or the private citizen Bave nothing to lose by the pret and Banner is in error it will be easy for the Able editor of the record or other respected Brethren to do the Public a service by showing wherein error has been promulgated or lodged in any part of the pub our idea is that the negro gets exact Justice when brought into Coart but we believe the court shave been too lenient to White men who Havo committed crimes against the person v just received another lot of fresh nuts at e.
