Jones. But we who know him have not the slightest difficulity in understanding his position and the animus of his piece. As he fights somewhat in the dark and among the bushes it is not so easy a task to repiy as it would be if he had fought squarely in the open. But I will select a few points where he seems to show his hand in lighting Prohibition. In his second sentence he makes his first lling at our cause. " Wespeak of the same standpoint from which X X views the subject and the Pharisaic manner in which it is often discussed'. I presume that from Dr. Jones" view point any one who advocates total abstinance from strong drink, and the prohibition of manufacture and sale of same for beverage purposes is guilty of discussing the subject in a Pharisaic manner To discuss it in a sane way is to say that whiskey is a good thing to use, provided you do not make a habit of getting beastly drunk, that it is a medicine good for all the physical ills of humanity, and that everybody should be allowed to make and sell it who desires so to do. The sainted men and women like John B. Gough, Clinton B. Fisk, Henry Grady, T. S. Arthur, Hale Johnson, J. B Finch, Frances E. Willard, Clara C. IIolTman, J. A. Brooks and others who spoke and wrote and sacrificed in behalf of total abst: nance and Prohibition were all hypocritical pharisees according to the Doctor's view of the case. Daniel was a chief of the Pharisees and the Bechabites a tribe of Pharisees, (see Jer. .'15th chapter.) The prophet Habakkuk must have been treating the subject in a Pharisaic manner when he said "Woe unto him that giv-et- h his neighbor drink: that puttest thy bottle to him and makest him drunken " (llab. 2:15 ) The Bible doctrine of temperance, the common sense doctrine, the scientific doctrine, is total abstinance from all that is harmful and moderation in the use of that which is good. The Doctor gives us a long disquisition on the old way of making the stuff, on the taxation o the same, and on the, then and the now, of liquor drinking and its results. He claims that liquor drinking causes four-fol- d more evil according to the amount consumed now, than it did then. Well, my understanding is that whiskv and brandy, even in their purity, would alwavs make people drunk and cause trouble, and even the Doctor himself admits that in the good old days of his youth they caused fights. Now if the quality of liquor is so much worse at present than ;t used to be, why not stop the making of it altogether? That is certainly a good argument for Prohibition. But he says the liquor of the" good old days contained more songs than fights. Well, are we to conclude that he has kept in store all these long years a supply of the inspiring beverage of old, and that to it we are to ascribe the poetic effusions from his pen that have appeared from time to time in die News? It is said that Poe's poem the "Eaven" was inspired by the juice of corn and that the raven which perched above his chamber door was delirium tremens, "simply this and nothing more." Bro Jones claims that whenadozen distilleries were being operated in Eussell county, and mint julip was served out in washing tubs on election day without money and without price, that all the evil results were a little extra enthusiasm on the part of a few, a. political fisticuff or two, and a number of old topers somewhat soaked on public days. This seems to me to be quite a large fish storybut as he h?s proved part of it by Tohn Smith, I will not call for proof on the rest of it. But if this all be true, what bearing does it have on the merits of the question today? Put a dozen distilleries into operation in Eussell county now, and serve the sweetened mint julip in tubs and tin cups free of charge, and put the liquor at every public gathering and what would be the result? The above named play was pulled off last Wednesday at the court-hous- e night, under the management of the ladies of the Eastern Star Chapter, this place. The court room was filled to its capacity, many having to stand in order to witness the play. There were more than thirty characters, all home talent, and some very tine acting was put on. In fact, the rendering of this play proved, beyond question, that there is much talent in Columbia.

T860j statesman, and President of the Confederate States, of America, was born in Christian county, Ky., on June 3, 1808, just the year before the birth of Lincoln. When the boy was less than ten years of age, his father moved to Mississippi and thus early in life was formed a connection with his adopted btate, which became in after years a source of pride to both. He returned to Transylvania University, in his native state, for his education, and in 1834 entered the Military School at West Point, where Robert E. Lee was his classmate. He graduated in 1828, with usual brevet of Second Lieutenant of Infantry. He at once entered active service, on frontier, the North-Westewhere he served seven years and rn ten an exceedingly interesting history of his life. In March, he was appointed Secretary of War in the Cabinet of President Pierce. ' While in this position he urged that the "United States Army should in time of peace prepare for war, and was instrumental in placing it upon a stronger footing. the In 1857 he Unitsd States Senate, and many of the most exciting events in the history of our country occur-re- d during the ensuing years. They were the shadows of the re-enter- ed coming war. The Guerrills skirmishing on the plains of Kansas, was promoted to First Lieuten- ant. Even thus early in life, his yigorous mind had decided on lh& question of States Rights, for in 1833, when it was believed that the Government troops would be called upon to enforce certain acts cf Congress in South Carolina, which that Stats nullified, Jefferson Davis was pre- ' pared to resign his Commission rather than be obliged to take a part in the Coercion of a state of ihe Union. During the Black Hawk war Davis and Lincoln met each other, and had some acquaint-snce- .t In 1835 Mr. Davis was married to daughter of Gen. Zachary Taylor, she died September 13, a few months after their union. In the same year Mr. Davis resigned his Commission any retired to a Missippi plantation. When the Mexican war broke out, Col. Davis at the head of the First Regiment of Mississippi volunteers, marched to the Rio Grande and joined the army before Montery, and fought at Buena Vista, receiving there a arising from the attempt to force slavery into that territory; the diasention coming from the Democrats upon the question of Squatter Souvereignty; and the discussion of States Rights. In I860 Mr Davis offered in the United States Senate a series of resolutions which were adopted, to the effect that "the states had formally accepted the Constitution a s independent Sovereigns, delegating to the General Government a portion of their power for the sake of security, that the intermedling of the part of any one of them with the domestic institutions of another was not only insulting, but dangerous to the domestic peace, and tending to destroy the Union; that Negro Slavery was legal, and that neither Congress nor Territorial Legislature had the right to interfere with declaring that, the Union wasidissolved. This act was re- ceived with rej0icing mixed with pxcitemet and fear. On January 9, 1861, Missisip-p- i seceded from the Union, and on the 21 Mr. Davis, devoted to the doctrines of States Rights, withdrew from the United States Senate with a speech, in which he strongly set forth his principles, and to which an immence throng of people listened with He fully breathless attention. justified the course of Missisippi as a conviction, of pressing necessity, if we are to be deprived in the Union of the rights which our fathers bequeathed to us. In a conversation with Hon. James Campbell, General of the United States, Mr. Davis said "Campbell I love this old Union. My father bled for it' and I have fought for it, but unless you were in the South and knew our people you could not begin to estimate the bitterness of feeling already engendered there, and which will increase if Lincoln is elected." Ex-Postmaster tionably he was the popular choice; he did not seek the office and there was no intriguing for it. Hostilities at once began, and battles followed which are described in our historical records, as well as Mr. Davis' "Rise and Fall cf the Southern Confederacy At the expiration of the first year of the Provisional Government a new Congress was elected, and a new inaugural was delivered, February 22, 1862.

In this matter we do not mean to yield'unconditionally to railroads,1, but merely to make reasonable requirements, and to prevent monopolies that would deprive thejjl people from the healthy effects of competition. Too many politicians are seeking to arouse the people Egainst corporations merelyoto advance personal interests is our honest opinion, and we predict that the day is not far distant when the average intelligent&citizen will see it. We do not believe in any policy that curtails development, unless such development is detrimental to the public good. Attempted force usually breeds resistance which is not good for either partyiwhile reasonable of good motives, may be depended upon for good resultsof mutual interests. We believe in a live and let live policy, and take but little stock in' the policy of destruction. In fact, we believe that more railroads are needed, more streams should be made navagable, and that both will be accomplished when the pendulum of public sentiment swings to its proper baiance.

Francois Blanc," said the judge, "what have you to say why sentence should not be passed upon you?" "Nothing." "I regret that the inadequacy of the law compels me to let you off with a nominal punishment You corrupted the young men in the telegraph office to publish false news from the Stock Exchange in Paris to enable you to make money by buying or selling shares, an offense which should give you not less than ten years in prison. I sentence you to serve seven months In jail, being the longest term I can give you for your crime." Francois Blanc bowed his head and was marched away. When his term of service had passed he came out of jail with $20,000 to his credit in bank. Right under the nose of the judge who had convicted him he established a casino in Homburg, which was really a gambling house. He made money, but a prejudice against gambling was growing in Germany, and he feared' the time would come when laws would be passed that would ruin his business. M. Blanc looked up rather than down. He aspired to run his gambling business in a country where he could so Influence the laws that none would be made to interfere with his method of enriching himself. So he looked about him. In Europe there are a number of small kingdoms, principalities, dukedoms, that have been independent so long that none of the great power's have the hardihood to absorb them. Blancfound a little principality containing a few square miles only that seemed ripe for what he intended. What the powers dare not absorb by the bayonet he resolved to absorb by undermining with gold. The ruler of this principality had descended from one of the oldest royal families in Europe, but he had nothing but his pedigree. He held a court, it Is true, but his courtiers were those who served without salaries and were able occasionally to lend the sovereign money. In order to recoup he sold a concession in his principality to two men, who bought it with the intention of opening a gambling house on the territory conceded. They built a casino and began operations, but the prince wanted all their profits, and they became discouraged. Francois Blanc, learning of this concession and the condition of its owners, bought it from them and, closing out his casino at Homburg. built "a costly one on the new site, laid out splendid gardens in short, expended several millions with a view to making his place attractive. Fortunately for .him the time was ripe for such an inFor many years Baden vestment Baden, in Germany, had been the fashionable gambling center of Europe, where every one. from royalty to commoner, gave way to the passion of gaming. Baden Baden was now no longer such a resort, and Blanc aimed to make his concession what Baden Baden had been. In this he succeeded. The gambling mania of Europe was all made to pour gold into Francois Blanc's pocket. Kings and queens, princes and princesses, dukes and duchesses, came and made it fashionable, to be followed by every one who had a ffanc to spend and a franc to risk. The sovereign had all the money he wanted to spend, and his court, if not numerous, were at least well dressed and were not called upon to lend the prince money. But while he held the empty title of ruler of the principality Francois Blanc was the real governor. The prince died and left his inheritance to his son. The new sovereign proved himself really nothing more than a silent junior partner in a gambling establishment and there was nothing for him to do but remain as he was. so he renewed the concession for a term of fifty years for $5,000,000. a sum that Francois Blanc could well afford to pay since he made it in a single year He could affo'rd to do more than this, ne furnished all the money necessary to run the government, including official salaries. One storm arose on the gambler sovereign's path, but he weathered it The prince's neighbors, not relishing a gambling principality so near them, endeavored to induce one of the powers on which it bordered to take steps to prohibit it. In addition, the prince's subjects became dissatisfied at paying taxes to a prince who had such an enormous revenue. At 'Blanc's request the sovereign abolished all taxes, and Blanc paid them. Thia was the last bite in the loaf the gambler devoured. The prince, the principality and lastly the subjects passed into his capacious maw. for when a citizen sells his citizenship the buyer becomes its owner. Francois Blanc accumulated a fortune equal to some of the largest in" America, and, if he was only a princa In a financial way. he married his daughters to princes. The principality that forms the subject of this narrative lies on the north shore of the Mediterranean and Is called Monaco. It is divided into three parts, one of which is Monte Carlo. It is on this portion that, all Europe, persons from all parts of tho world, assemble to "buck the tiger." If the present Prince of Monaco de rives an Income from a concession to a gambler be is personally far above the gambling business.
