[is quite an interesting fact to note
' they have preserved almost intact
distinctive features of their man

Hth close and intimate contact with
H progressive tendencies of our civHLation.
Instead of being assiiniHted
with the masses of the people
Kcially and losing mnch of that which
m so quaint and suggestive of the sevenleenth
century life and customs, they
not only do not allow themselves to be
absorbed, but exact this tribute of
xheir~convert-;?that they conform to
their manners as- well as their creed,
thus furthering that which has not
only given them prominence as a religions
sect, but which has peculiarly
distinguished them as members of
f society. It might possibly be interesting
to know that they number about
There are now two sects or divisions
of Friends?one the orthodox who are

much that is considered orthordox,
especially in dress and other minor
matters, yet tend to a more liberal
system of theoloy, holding a creed

There are also a number of charitable
and educational institutions here which
have been endorsed and supported by
them, and an immense amount of good
work thus done for the city at large. *
They intermeddle but little in politics,
bat there is no question as to the
fact that ihey have been a strong conservative
element in shaping the social
and political life of the city, and have
had a great influence in miking Philadelphia
of a'l Northern cities the most
distinctively American in its life.
The Russian exile system with its
attendant horrors has stirred up iu
many of these cities considerable feeling,
due principally to the letters and
lectures of Geo. Kennan, who has devoted
so much lime and study to the
workings and effects of the system,
and it has resulted in the formation
of anti-Siberian Exile Association?,

get the Czar to lend his authority and

desire to own up frankly and Ireely on 1
the Tillman question.
We hoped against hope until the last i
minute that our first opinion ofOaptain j
Tillman was right. \Ve thought him a j
somewhat extreme and violent man, j
but believed that he was entirely conscientious
and was induced to make
rash statements and take positions he
could not hold by honest zeal for the
good of his State and the righting of

and repelled the charges of opposition

chiefly for Tillman's advancement.
We believed that we had at last found

State and his class.

the movement lie has done so much
daring the last five years to give shape '
to. The Farmers' Movement, for the |
farmers:, of the farmers and by the
farmery, has been twisted into a Tillman
movement for Tillman, of Tillman
and hv Tillman. What we thought
was patriotism we And to bo politics.!

and other esteemed contemporaries
who have all along treated Captain
Tillman as a candidate in training for
a race for the Governorship to pass
along our dish of^ crow as gently as
possible in the circumstances and will
then untie witn a vast number of honest
and confiding people in the doleful
chorus, "sold again."
We are sorry to lose the disinterested
and sturdy patriot in whom we hare
believed all these years, but we are not
sorry for our part in it. We would
rather think too well of ninety-nine
men than to fail to srive one credit that
he deserves. We prefer to err on the
side of charity and confidence in human
nature. We are glad that to the very
last we demanded fair play for Captain
Tiliman and that he should not be
judged in advance of his acts. Now
that he ha? by his own 'act confirmed
the charges his enemies have made
against him the responsibility is on
Nor do we charge him with any
crime. If he wanted to be Governor,
he had the right to work for that end
and tn tpcnrc nil fhft hnf.kinor he flOtlld.
It is now for the Democrats of the State
to say whether they approve his methods
and his candidacy. He has put
himself beore them for judgment.
The outlook for him is not very good.
He has resigned his claim to be a disinterested
patriot working tolely for
the good of his fellow farmers and he
has cot established a stauding as a
brilliant or successful politician. He

by Captain Shell, who is Captain Tillman's
warm friend and devoted advocate.
It was called as a convention of
all whe were in sympathy with the
Farmer's Movement to make nominations.
These farmers and those who
were in sympathy with them met at
their County seats and by their actions
proved that they opposed the making
The first vote on the question in the
convention was a defeat for the nomination
plau. There was a majority of
one against nominations, inclndinsr the
vote of Mr. Farley, of Laurens, as a
part of the Spartanburg delegation,
which was withdrawn when a protest
was made against it. Excluding that
vote, the motion for nominations was
defeated bv a. maioritv of two.
Among the votes for nominations
were those of the four delegates from
PickenB, who were elected by a farmers'
mass meeting which adopted resolutions
against nominations. The four
men who"went to Columbia voted for
nominations, but their votes did not
rub out the fact that the farmers ot
their County opposed such action.
To make the majority of one there
was also included nine votes from the
city of Charleston. Those rotes were
cast by delegates elected two nights
before the convention by a meeting
called at a day's notice.
How the farmers of Spartanburg
County feel cannot be known because
all who opposed nominations were
rnled ont of the County meeting by
Senator It. M. Smith, a ruling which
was reveised by the convention when
it admitted the Barnwell and Smnter
delegations instructed against nominations.
Any fair-minded man considering
these' facts must conclude that the
farmers and their sympathizers vit^
tuallv declared against nominations in
It the convention had been the regular
Democratic State Convention and
the result had been secured by the
votes of delegates in opposition to the
expressed wishes of those who sent
them and of other delegates hastily
chosen in Charleston at short notice

and the attempt to commit them with
or without their consent to Captain
Tillmairs candidacy we will be much
Captaiu Tillmau, as be declared
himself, carried the platform to Columbia
in his pocket. It is a very fair
platform?much more moderate and
conservative in its tone than many of
the preceding utterances from Captain
Vitlmon onrj Ponlaill Shpll Tfpnplv
jverybody can endorse it, and, for that
matter, there is no special objection to
;ho gentlemen nominated on it, so far
is they are personally concerned. The
sveakness of ihe ticket is in the mode
ind manner of its nomination and the
net hods used in promoting it.
"WHAT THE STUDENTS SAY.
Whereas it lias been brought to the j
notice of the students ot me ^ouin
Caroliua University that certain damaging
statements have been circulated "
in regard to the actions of some of the
students on the night of the 27 instant,,..'
therefore, be it.
Resolved., That the following statements
are false: (a) that a body
of students followed Captain Tillmaii j
to his hotel; (b) lhat they sang "vile"
A ,1 fU/v
songs; (c) that tnev inreateiieu - lu
do personal violence to his person."
That immediately after the convention
adjourned a number of students
were in a crowd together, with delegates
and others, and indulged in a
demonstration more boisterous than
politic; that the students intended no
disrespect whatever to the convention.
That the account published in the
Ao /i'>i ri f1nuri.fr of March 29th is I
complete and true in eveiy detail.
That these resolutions be published
in the leading papers of the State.
