The lecture by Hon. Lou J.
Beaucbamp Saturday night was in
the same happy vein as the others
of the series full of humor and
pathos, and bringing laughter and
tears as the lecturer touched the
different chords of feeling in his
hearers. The sermons in the
morning and evening, and the lec lecture

attended, by interested audiences.
The sermon at the Methodist
church last night had for a text
the first eight verses of the book
of Esther, which described a mag magnificent
nificent magnificent Oriental feast in ancient
Persia, where 'the drinking was
according to the law." The appli application

eloquent. Mr. Beauchamp has the
rare faculty of delving into the
Bible and finding spiritual les lessons

The Outlook in South Carolina.
Rev. C. C. Brown In the Watchman.
A year ago, Mr. Editor, this
was the bluest section of our
great Union. A wag said one
could scrape blueing from human
countenances, and it looked like it
was so. Cotton was selling at
four and five cents, com was
scarce, and it really seemed that
the end of all things was at hand.
Under the combined influence of
dobt and despair, the farmers
sowed their seed in the spring.
Having planted it in that expecta expectation,
tion, expectation, he lived accordingly, and
multitudes have coine to rejoice
over the enforced economy of '95.
Expecting to have but little money
at the end of the year, they spent
but little, and incurred very few
debts. To find now that cotton
brings eight cents, instead of five,
has put a new aspect on every everything,
thing, everything, and there is life in the old
land yet. For nearly two years
the farmers have bought no cloth clothing,
ing, clothing, nor blankets, nor shoes; but
now hey are supplying themselves
freely, and the dry-goods men are
hardly able to keep stocks suffi sufficient
cient sufficient to supply the demand.
Meanwhile the great constitu constitutional
tional constitutional convention has been drag dragging
ging dragging itself along from week to week,
as if it intended to do something
before it adjourned. The liquor
law has been so far fixed as to
make it unlawful ever again to sell
the article in this state, except in
half pints. That virtually abolishes
the old-time barroom and the des des-tructive
tructive des-tructive custom of treating at the
bars. Surely this is n good long
step towards better things.
The knotty question before our
Solons was the law of suffrage.
At once it was decreed that
women could not vote. The only
argument I haye heard of as be being
ing being used against it was that they
have never voted, and hence must
not now begin. That vas a clinch clincher
er clincher with many, and there was noth nothing
ing nothing beyond it. The same argu argument
ment argument held good when the Solons
came to the question of divorce.
They all agreed that our Lord had
said that there was one ground for
granting divorce; but no matter
what the Lord had said, South
Carolina had said something else
during many years, and so Christ's
teachings were set aide in order
that we might maintain our pres prestige
tige prestige and the reputation we had
won in the past.
But the general suffrage that
was the rub. You may have
heard, in some way, that we have
many negroes in this state. The
white man accords the negro
many privileges, but no one can
make him believe that the negro
is his equal. All the world may
combine and denounce the white
man for holding to this faith; but
the fact remains, and will remain
for some time to come. You see,
the negro was once the white
man's chattel, and he cannot for forget
get forget this fact in a decade or two.
And the white man, justly or un unjustly,
justly, unjustly, owns seven-eights of the
property. This is a mighty fac factor
tor factor in giving shape to thought.
But, above all the South Caro Carolinian
linian Carolinian who is over twenty years
old, has a feeling recollection of
nepro domination in reconstruc reconstruc-tion
tion reconstruc-tion times those days of good
stealing, as they were called, when
a man's taxes were more than a
fourth of all he made. This is
history, and it cannot be banished
from the Carolinian's mind in a
moment. In our state house, at
this moment, are the reconstruc reconstruction
tion reconstruction cuspidores, which were
bought for three dollars, and
charged to the state at sixty, the
surplus fifty-seven dollars going
into the pocket of some brawny brawny-politician
politician brawny-politician from the cotton or rice
So, then, there was a strong de desire,
sire, desire, on the part of the delegates
to the convention to repress or
minimize the negro vote. Hence,
they were not satisfied to make a
property and an educational quali qualification
fication qualification simply, but they defined
what the education must b not
merely to own three hundred dol dollars
lars dollars worth of taxable property
and be able to read any clause of
the constitution, but also to un understand
derstand understand it. This was the pivotal
point, and just here the fight was
A DISGUISED BLESSING.
The law may seem cruel and un unjust
just unjust to the negro; but I am con convinced
vinced convinced that it will bi a blessing to
him in the end, and twenty years
hence the negro's franchise will
be as universal as the white man's.
But twenty years hence what
will the white man do then, if he
finds that there are as many black
voters as there are white? Will
it be necessary to call another
constitutional convention, and
change the law, so as to continue
to keep down the negro vote? The
answer given is, No, the white
man will be willing for the negro
to vote as soon as he has the
double qualification of being in intelligent
telligent intelligent and a property holder.
