apprehension concerning himself, and still professing a warm and strong friendship for him. He referred to some newspaper criticisms on Motley's removal which had been supposed to be the echo of the senator's conversations; but the latter disavowed having prompted them. The secretary's letters were written in good temper, and personally he was without doubt disinclined to the rupture to which the exigencies of his official relations were hurrying him. Sumner, when the session opened in December, 1870, had given no occasion for a disturbance of the old friendship. Mr. Fish wrote years afterwards: Letter to Boston Transcript, Oct. 31, 1877. I declare positively and emphatically that Mr. Sumner never but once spoke an unkind word to me, and never a discourteous one; and on the one occasion referred to Probably with reference to Motley's removal. (in the Senate chamber in July, 1870) he instantly withdrew his hasty expression, and warmly seized my hand in friendship, as he express

, and had been rejected by the decisive vote of the Senate. Without its further agitation there would be harmony; its revival was sure to bring discord. The President, however, acting wholly on his own motion or more or less by the instigation of others, decided to bring the disturbing question again to the front. His decision was deeply regretted by the mass of the members of his party in Congress and in the country, and it was fraught only with mischief. In his annual message, in December, 1870, he earnestly urged upon Congress early action for acquiring the island of San Domingo. The Haytian minister at Washington asked an explanation of the proposition to acquire the island, which included Hayti; but Mr. Fish declined to give it. His estimates of the capacities of the territory were wildly extravagant. Blaine's Twenty Years in Congress, vol. II. p. 459. Its acquisition would in his view reduce our imports by one hundred millions of dollars, turn the balance of foreign

king ones, as in his conversation with Mr. Curtis in the summer of 1871 at Long Branch, and in his interviews in Scotland in September, 1877, and at Cairo in January, 1878, without ever making the remotest allusion to the reason which Mr. Davis now resorts to when the others have failed. Again, and finally, as showing that no views of Mr. Sumner about Canada ever prompted a vote for his removal, it should be remembered that the removal was attempted at the beginning of the session in December, 1870, and threatened in debate on December 21, some weeks before the memorandum of Jan. 17, 1871, about Canada was written. Mr. Davis assumes to give the terms of Mr. Sumner's memorandum of Jan. 17, 1871. Taking it as given, Mr. Sumner appears to have thought the proximity to us of the British possessions a cause of irritation and disturbance, by furnishing a basis of operations for Fenianism; and in order to make the settlement complete, and prevent all controversy in the future, he prop

rganizations of the Woman Suffrage Movement. But I should wish to move for various meetings in which the matter of my appeal, the direct intervention of Woman in the Pacification of the World, should be discussed, and the final move of a general Congress promoted. Please take hold a little now and help me. I have wings but no feet nor hands — rather, only a voice, vox et praeterea nihil. The next step was to call together those persons supposedly interested in such a movement. In December, 1870, it was announced that a meeting for the purpose of considering and arranging the steps necessary to be taken for calling a World's Congress of Women in behalf of International Peace would be held in Union League Hall, Madison Avenue and Twentysixth Street, New York, on Friday, December 23. The announcement, which sets forth the need for and objects of such a congress, is signed by Julia Ward Howe, William Cullen Bryant, and Mary F. Davis. The meeting was an important one: there were

e returned home to Hartsville and again entered school, first at a private school in his county, and in January, 1866, he entered the South Carolina college at Columbia. He remained there until 1868 and then returned home and commenced farming at Hartsville, and has followed that occupation ever since. In 1884 he was elected county commissioner of Darlington county, and served until 1890, being chairman of the board the last four years of that time. He has been twice married, first in December, 1870, to Miss Carrie Holland of Ninety-six, Abbeville county. This lady died in September, 1874, leaving one son, James Gillams, who died in 1893, at that time being in the senior class of the South Carolina military academy. He was married a second time in, December, 1876, to Miss Hannah, daughter of the Rev. N. W. Edmunds, D. D., pastor of the Presbyterian church at Sumter, S. C. They have four children, as follows: William Edmunds, Thomas C., H. Leland, and Carrie Holland. Mr. Law is ad

opposite it. At that time Ellis Pitcher had a grocery in the Mystic Hall building and was postmaster. Up beside the freight track R. K. Carpenter did granite cutting. Pitcher sold out to Sawyer & Parmenter in June, and they to J. E. Ober in December, 1870. This was the extent of business operations then. In the winter of 1870-71 Mr. Usher had the roof of that one-story building (in which the post office had once been) raised up and another story built in, with stairs, outside, to it. In th run, then a fish man tried it, and in 1872 Artemas Poole, a shoe-maker, came in. Meanwhile a livery and boarding stable for D. K. Richardson had been built just beyond Whitmore brook, and Mr. Usher had begun to publish the Medford Journal in December, 1870. Mr. Usher's stable was struck by lightning and burned and he replaced it by a new and larger building, which early in 1875 he moved across High street. This caused a rearrangement. Two buildings were moved to Auburn street (just extende
