AN ABLE ARGUMENT
From an Esteemed Contributor
Showing; Up the Hypocrisy
and Pecutiarilies of thc
MR. EDITOR: Wonder why the
anti-administration editors and
part of the anti-snpporters in
South" Carolina were created im
Judging from their utterances
and acts, they certainly believe
that they are more than mortal.
They vainly imagine that what
they don't know it would be folly
for others to try to learn.
These editors must surely think
that i hey have a hoad as large as a
half-bushel, and if these heads
don't quit expanding, we will soon
have a circus, consisting of a bat
talion of "enlarged noddles" wear
ing cheese boxes for hats,
"beavers" all too small.
Tested by any means it will be
clearly shown that all people are
made of the same "mud," all are
equal by nature. Then is it as they
imagine, that they have a monopoly
of brains and intelligence?
If an editor espouses the cause
of the farmer he is accused of
growing wealthy by actiuy "lick
spittle" for them. The leaders of
the farmers are demagogues, mug
wumps, etc. Yes, South Carolina
is a demagogue ridden State; they
say. Right here, is an editor any
better than other people? Is the
editor of the county -paper any
more brilliant than the man of
ordinary intelligence? Some of
them evidently think so. Some
imagine that because they are the
editors of anti papers they are in
They are not lo be consistent at
all ; because they belong to the anti
phalanx they say, and do anything
simply tocaTry their point politi
cally. They may call others liars,
demagogues, and undemocratic, in
fact- the ordinary country editor
may accuse a whole delegation of
good and tru& men sent to a
national convention of being un
democratic, and of being.igno
ramuses, etc., and all his readers
must hereafter consider them as
such, because this wisc and in
fallible anti lias placed their
brains in one side of the balances
and aptly put his in the otherside,
and his statement is, his out
weighed 'em all.
Let a reformer return the com
pliment-and they at once find a
man BO small he can't be seen un
der the microscope.
Some have found human beings
that-are smaller than animalculis.
Some of the purest men in the
State are hypocrites,, simply be
causo they are Tillmanites.
They are ever watchful, looking
for mot?is in the eyes of the reform
ers, but apparently too busily en
gaged are they to see the beams in
their own eyes. What is an offense
in a reformer is commendable in
an anti, according to their logic.
For instance it has gone the rounds
of the press and is starting on a
second trip, that Senator Irby and
Attorney General McLaurin car
ried concealed weapons. Yebyou
have never heard a .word from
them about Col. Youmans's pistol
at Kingstree, except that papers
and men a hundred miles from
Col. Youmans, can, without hear
ing from him, denounce the report
as false ; and so you must treat it,
because some of the immaculate
conservatives command you to. If
the town marshals w?re to examine
the hip-pockets of these same ed
itors when they "step down the
street," perhaps these officials
would find something to report to
the town councils about "little
They may hold secret caucuses,
yet it is very undemocratic for the
reformers to do the very same
Every means is being used tc
prejudice the farmers and theil
friends against the present admin
istration. The papers have beer
full of lengthy editorials aboui
Tillman's profanity, yet some oj
these editors don't even go inside
of a church once in three months
In fact very few of the antis tha
harp so on Tillman's immoralit)
have any religion to spare. If the}
were one-thousandth as religiouf
as they claim to be, they woulc
have dome charity-abuse Tillmai
less and pray for him more. I
they are as good as they claim ti
be their united prayers would ac
complish good, for "the prayer
of the righteous availeth much."
The conservatives say that the]
will win if they can devise Bomi
scheme to get all their men to tin
polls. Surely the day of miracle
has returned and they are jus
creating full grown men bj' th
One of their campaign argy
ments is that their forces are gain
ing largely each day from the re
form ranks. Hoping by this argu
ment to win some that always see
the popular side, but evidently th
reform ranks have no "weakness,
all are strong and arni and bomi
to remain so. They admit tha
they can change many votes i
they can get good workers at ?ach
box. ' Thus these vain and sophis
ticated antis rise to the very
height of impudence and practi
cally state that the farmers haven't
the sense to make a wise selection.
If these "horny handed sons of
toil" had the brain to make the
choice, why do the antis claim they
were duped and deceived by Till
By their reasoning, therefore,
the farmers are 'ignorant, and
criminally ignorant, else they
could ne^ er have been so basely
deceived. Some even use as an
argument against Gov. Tillman's
election, that he said, for that
almost unmentionable crime, he
would head a mob to lynch the vile
scoundrel who committed the deed.
They surely must not know the
inestimable value of the virtue of
ou? pure women. Tillman will
lose no, votes by protecting the
purity of woman. All the con
servatives' arguments are, however,
equally as fantastic as the above.
"Tillman arrays class against
class." One of their men, they say
their strongest, Col. Youmans,
when a candidate for Congress
said in a speech at Wards : "All the
other candidates are lawyers, I am
a farmer,you are farmers, therefore,
the shoe that pinches my foot will
hurt yours also." Has Tillman said
any more than this to "array class
against class?" That is that the
farmers have the majority and
should therefore rule it.
These same "consistent con
servatives" did not wish any bit
terness in the campaign, they were
going to throw roses instead of
rocks. Have their speakers acted
thus? Have their papers done it?
These same straightouts de
nounce independentism in one
breath and in the next eulogise
papers run by "independents."
Every act of the antis is for
"peace and unity" in the Demo
cratic party. Yel they subscribe
to papers gotten up by "bolters"
whose highest object was to op
poso the Democratic administra
tion. This they have nurtured
and helped to cultivate this same
discord and dissension, that they
so fiercely oppose. They will claim,
however, that they have the right
to subscribe to or to discontinue
any paper they wish, yet if the
farmers were to drop the anti pa
pers which have fought them- so
bitterly, these same "conserva
tives" would cry out boycott. But
it is no boycott when an anti puts
an administration and reform pa
perback in the office. and writes
on it, "We don't read the --:."'
In justification of their "course
these papers say: "Fighting the
Farmers' Movement, Agricultural
College, Alliance, etc., is not fight
I ing the farmers." As an illustra
tion, suppose a certain Baptist
church was to call Mr. A. to preach
for them, and when he gets in the
pulpit he denounces most ardently
close communion and immersion.
His members go to him and say,
"Mr. A. your course is objection
able to us-instead of advocating
our church, you fight it." He re
plies : "Oh, no, you are mistaken,
I didn't say anything against the
Baptists, I spoke of close com
munion and Immersion." Now,
wouldn't this be a flimsy get out,
since these are two of the cardinal
doctrines of the Baptist denomi
nation? Just so the farmers or re
form element in South Carolina,
is what makes the Farmers' Move
ment, the Alliance, etc,, therefore
it follows, that when they strike
one of these "principal parts," as
it were, they aim a blow directly
at the farmers.
Some of the zealous anti organs
are willing to lose South Caro
lina's electoral vote if thereby
they might defeat Tillman. But
the very papers and men that so
strenuously opposed Cleveland's
nomination, will now he is nomi
nated work hardest for his success
in South Carolina, for they don't
belong to the "bolting" class.
The antis have their most dex
trous smiths at work making small
and comely wedges, and their most
cunning and scheming politicians
are endeavoring to find' a weak
place in the ranks of the reform
ers, to drive these wedges so as to
cause a split, but most probably
they will learn before the Ides of
next November that tho reformers'
log is too tough to split.

Progress of The Campaign.
Ten meetings have been held, o
nearly one-third of the State ha
been canvassed up to this date
and'the plans and policy of bot]
sides have been pretty wei
developed, so that a looker on cai
easily foretell what the rest of i
will. be.Before the regular campaigi
opened, the main hope of th
opposition was that Sheppard an<
Orr would overwhelm and crusl
Governor Tillman, but the Green
ville and Edgefield meetings dem
onstrated too plainly that neithe
nor both were able to cope wit]
him in a square fight before th
j people, and therefore that hop
vanished. When th.3 regular cam
paign opened at Barnwell, Messrs
Sheppard and Orr were bot!
present ; but the latter soon lef

Youmans who made his firs
appearance at Hampton, in hi

withdrawing Orr, abd whe:

Youmans immediately after Til]

reply, was developed there, but wa
immediately checkmated by Ger

Youmans to ridicule and left hir
a,sorry spectacle before the crowe
As Youmans's speech containe
all the venom, and misrepresent

charges against the Governor, i
was seized upon by the extrem
antis and Haskellites as represen

paign should be conducted, an

Sheppard soon proved himsel
an "artful dodger," and Orr was
big blunderer, but Youmans -wa
