South Carolina and the following
went solid for Till m an : Abbe vi ll e,
Aiken, Anderson, Barnwell, Beau

Clarendon, Darlington. Edgefield,
"Florence, Fairfield, Greenville,
Georgetown, Hampton, Horry,

Lancaster, Marion, Marlboro, New
berry, Oconee, Pickens, Orange
burg, Union, Williamsburg, York
-but, beloved, we are tired ; let
us tell you the balance next week.
Spartanburg went solid for
THE MAY CONVENTION.
On last Monday the delegates
from the various local clubs met
in our court house and proceeded
Hon. W. H. Ycldell was made
'chairman, without opposition, and
P. N. Timmerman Secretary. Af
ter the organization was complete
the following resolutions were
offered by Dr. W. H. Timmerman
and supported in an able speech.
They were seconded and cham
pioned by Messrs. R. B. Watson,
Ernest Gary, P. B. Waters and L.
J. Williams :
"Whereas, we the Democracy of
Edgefield4 County in convention
assembled haye unshaken confi
dence in the integrity, administra
tive ability, patriotism, and states
manship of Gov. B. R. Tillman.
Therefore, be it resolved : That we
hereby heartily commend him for
renomination to the distinguished
position which he now so worthily
and faithfully fills.'^
' The debate of the convention
was on this resolution, but the
friends of Gov. Tillman were so
clearly in the right and so largely
in-the majority that it was a com
plete walk over, The Antis could
not stand up before the fiery elo
quence of Gary, Watson and Wil
liams, the logic of Timmerman
and Waters, and the Governor was
endorsed by a vote of 117 to 32.
The next thing in order was the
nomination of delegates to Colum
bia. Upon the motion of J. G.
???bleythe following were elected
, hy acclamation : s.
B. R. Tillman. W. J. Talbert,
J. H. Edwards, J. M. (raines,
W. H. Timmerman, R. B.Watson,
Z. Crouch, ' L. W. Reese,
J. M. Kinard, W. H. Yeldell,
J. J. Kirksey, E. Gary.
Notting but a poor sinner, but
he cleaned up the pharisees.
. t*And the common people hear<4
. him gladly."
Dr. Joe Kirksey says it is an
other bad case of "extremely even
Capt. Phil Waters's speech
bristled with logic and he drove
the nail home every time.
The vote on the resolutions en
dorsing Tillman were 117 to 32, or
about4toi. Is there any "ex
tremely evenly" about that?
The Edgefield Chronicle will
say this week that the Convention
at this place on last Monday was
. "extremely, evenly divided," or
words'to that effect.
Col. Bob Watson is a magnetic
speaker, and when his clarion
voice would ring out it electrified
the boys and they made the walls
of ?he old court house ring again.
Col. Bob Watsob, Dr. Hodge
Timmerman, Maj. Ernest Gary
and Capt. Phil Waters sheared the
sheep in the convention on Mon
day. Edgefield don't care how
yon shear 'em, gentlemen, so you
shear 'em even-"extremely even
ly" will do.
Maj. Gary told a delicious little
anecdote about two brothers and
two flocks of goats. The point of
the anecdote was that John Shep
pard is a very good sort of fellow,
but that just now he was muster
ing with a measly and mongrel
set and we can't take him.
There is one word which expresses
Gov. Tillman's pre-eminence over
all big competitors, and that word
is "map." It means vigor, vim,
viriliy, nerve, dash and anything
else necessary to the ' unhorsing
and dehorning of his adversary
It has always been a matter of
astonishment to me, said Col.
Watson, turning his eyes towards
a group of antis, that while great
men are often too modest to grap
ple with even small subjects,
small men are ever ready to take
hold of great matters. The cap
fit fomebody, and the little some
body all "swunk up;" he curled
np on the floor and the subsequent
proceedings interested him no
Dr. Timmerman got off a good
one on a little anti in the conven
tion last Monday. The little fel
low brayed like a long-eared jack
ass while the Doctor was speaking.
The Doctor turned to him and
said: "You may bray loud and
you may bray long, but you'll
never get the fodder." This hit
brought down the house again and
the jack-ass didn't bray any more.
When Ben Tillman, the great
commoner, gets through with' his
reforms in the political world of
South Carolina, and has satisfied
to the utmost the demands of the
people in this line, we hope that
he will become an evangelical
preacher, and turn his batteries on
unregenerate man in the moral
world. We are satisfied he
could out-Jones Sam Jones him
Th? Newberry Observer says in
substance that the Supreme Being
is on the side of Ben Tillman.
Such being the case, contemporary,
don't you think you have, in
opposing him, bitten off more than
you can chew? Ben was a daisy
before, but since you have given
him such a Helper it is about
time to let him go in. Pass the
word down the line to the News
and Courier and Greenville News.
The Columbia State, having said
that the ADVERTISER sjyled the
Sheppard-Orr combination, "the
Radical ticket," we pronounced
the charge untrue, whereupon that
paper comes at us again thus : "We
.are unable to see what it (the
ADVERTISER) can hope to gain by
such a denial since every one who
read it saw the words 'The Radical
Ticket' placed as a caption over
:its article on the Conservative
ticket. Editorial headlines are
editorial expressions." The AD
VERTISER had no article on the
Conservative ticket in its colunns,
and as a consequence no headline
referring to such article. The
State has put its other foot in it,
and now has both feet stuck hard
and fast in an inveracity
Now, what are you going to do
about it? Any plunging, rearing,
or kicking will only get you deeper
in. By way of variety, confess that
you too are a "poor sinner" and
let it go at that.
The reports in the daily papers
of our State that there were from
2,000 to 2,500j>eople at the meet
ing of 'Saturday last, ' are
inconceivably and monumentally
absurd. Why, we have not more
than 3,500 white voters m the
country, and if there was a
Saluda man in the crowd of
Saturday, we did not see him.
One thousand would cover the
last man, including the 150 ladies.
There were about one thousand
people here-fewer possibly-and
these one thousand, in Ftheir
political sympathies, were ex
tremely evenly divided between
Tillman and Sheppard.-Edgefield
Everybody is wiser than any-,
body, or as the shrewd Talleyrand
used to say of Voltaire and his
skepticism, "There is somebody
whp has more brains than M. de
Voltaire, and that somebody is
everybody." All the people of
Edgefield County know more of
the size and relative proportions
of the meeting of the . 23rd than
the Edgefield Chronicle, and they
all say there wasn't any "extreme
ly evenly" about it, but we con
gratulate our contemporary that
he has at last dropped the ad
jectives and taken to adverbs,
which, although they are still very
misleading, have the merit at
least of not being "nawsty."
Last week G .v. Sheppard at
tended a meeting of the Bar Asso
ciation in Charleston and while
there was interviewed by a re
porter of the News and Courier,
and among, other things;'expressed
himself as being highly pleased
with the results of the Edgefield
meeting, at which he thought the
audience were about equally
divided, but if there was any ad
vantage eitLer way it was on his
We publish this utterance of
Gov. Sheppard not for the purpose
of intimating moral obliquity on
his part, for the ADVERTISER is not
just now engaged in dealing dam
nation round the land-that seems
to be the especial prerogative of
our contemporary across the
street, but we do so that the pub
lic may understand how difficult
it is for a man to act as judge in
his own case. We think Gov.
Sheppard believes he was stating
an absolute verity when he said
the "audience was equally divided,
but if there was any advantage
either way it was on his side." Ii
is rather unfortunate, however
that the Governor,, believing as he
did, did not ask for a hand pri
mary, for if he could have in thie
way shown that his friends al
that meeting were even approx
imately equal in numbers to those
of Tillman, the moral effect o?
such a showing of hands would
have been worth thousands ot
votes to him.
All hail Leonard J. Williams,
who, although a nephew of Gov.
Sheppard, has aligned himself on
the side of the people and spoke
fervently and eloquently in their
behalf, but didn't he wallop Till
Scott Allen's boldness in the
convention on Monday excited the
admiration of even his political
antagonists, But Scott is on the
wrong side of the fence. By na
ture and by training he is on the
side of the people. Come over,
Scott, and be of us and among us.

Mr. Payne Replies.
[Hon. W. E. Ear le, Washington, D
DEAR SIR : I received your letter
[ of recent date, and would say
' did not intend it to be understood
that I was giving a verbally
I accurate report of Orr's speech on
the occasion referred to in my
I article in the Cotton Plant, but
only intended to give its ^sub
stance, which I did as truly as
could from my recollection.
But the question is, not what he
said there or what he said any
where else, or what was tire action
of the very able Abboyille Bar, or
the action of the Legislature, or
I any or all those things, added to
your own personal aud intimate
relations with him. All those
things have no relevancy to the
central question, "Did he betray
his country?" The verdict of the
people from the mountains to the
sea at the ti me was an over
Nothing has transpired since to
(change or modify that verdict
?and he stands to-day in
I judgment of his countrymen
the only man of prominence
the State that could be found
cast his fortunes with the recog
nized enemies of his country.
Now if that be true (and I do
not think you will deny it), let
me ask you is it the proper thing
for his son, however worthy, to
come forward and propose to rule
the country that all the people be
lieve his father betrayed?
You are well aware of the fact
that our State was overrun by a
horde of the most merciless and
unprincipled incendiaries that
ever followed the fortunes of
predatory leaders since Warren
Hastings and his desolating bands
swept over the plains of the
I Carnatac, and you are also aware
of )the fact,fhat Ex-Gov. Orr was
one of that horde, and a leader
Now the "wonderful
sagacity" (of which you
? your lotter to me) that would land
a man in the camp of such a crew
as raided our State in those bitter
days is precisely the kind of
"political sagacity" that it has
I always taken to make what the
! world has always called a /traitor,"
1 And you will further permit me
1 to remind you that the driving
out of the State of this???pernicious
robber band (of whom Gov. Orr
was one of the leaders) is precisely
what constitutes Wade Hampton's
greatest glory, and entitles him to
the measureless and unstinted
gratitude of his countrymen.
I have written nothing for the
impeachment of any one. Col.
Orr may be, and doubtless is a
very worthy gentleman; he may
be a kind neighbor : he may be all
that the best man could be, and
I yet his aspirations in this matter
will alwayfi have some features
that somehow seem to cause a jar
in the harmony of the "eternal
fitness of things.''
I think his friends have been
much to blame for placing him in a
position that makes a reference to
his father's record inevitable.
It may seem wrong to you as
the friend of Gov Orr to have the
old Latin saying "De mortuis nil
nisi bonum" disregarded, but you
j must remember humanity has a
great deal of human nature in it
and it has always been and always
will be just as it is now in relation
to matters like this. Aud wei
certainly have unimpeachable
authority for visiting the "iniquity
of the fathers on the children,"
however unfortunate and seem
ingly unjust it may be to the
Very truly yours,
JOHN M. PAYNE
P. S. I would have written sooner,
but I am a very old man (in my
seventy-eighth year), and have
been a little more unwell and weak
than usual, but I hope what I
have written will be sufficient if
not altogether satisfactory.
Suppose the son of Benedict Ar
nold had come to New York when
peace was declared and offered
himself for Lieutenant Governor!
What would, the people have done
about it? Yet Arnold would have
betrayed his countrymen to their
peers, and not put them under the
heels to their former negro slaves.

Cheap Editions and reprints have been frequently offered by
ieriodicals as premiums to subscribers, but never before has an origi
lal subscription edition on best paper, and in cloth binding (sold at
etail at $7.00), been reduced to fifty cents-probably less tuan the
ost of the binding alone-and presented to the readers of a magazine
pon receipt of fifty cents. :
Such an offer will never be made again. No publisher could af
ord to make it unless he wished to present a magazine which he felt
ure had only to be introduced to retain its permanent place on the
ami ly book table-a magazine just as interesting to the young boy or
irl as to the oldest grey head.
