Gov. Tillman's Reasons.
The report having been circula
ted that-Gov. Tillman had asked
President Cleveland to not ap
point Mr. M. L. Donaldson to an
office, several County Alliances
passed resolutious asking Gov.
Tillman to give his reasons for
the action if the report were true.
Below we give the resolutions
passed by the Greenville County
Alliance and Gov. Tillman's re
ply as furnished The Cotton
"Whereas, it has been stated in
the public press that Gov. B. R.
Tillman had written a letter to
Pr?sident Cleveland in which he
requested of the Presideat that
certain eitizens of this State be not
appointed to any Federal office at
home and abroad;, and whereas,
the name of the Hon. M. L.
Donaldson, the President of the
Farmers' State Alliance, is re
ported to have been one of those
blacklisted by Gov. Tillman.
"Be it Resolved by tho Green
ville County Alliance in regularly
quarterly meeting assembled, that
not having seen any denial of
said alleged blacklist, we deem it
but jnst to the honored President
of the State Farmers' Alliance as
well as to the order itself to take
cognizance of the ma} ter and take
such steps as are necessary to
learn from Gov. Tillman himself
whether the public statements as
to the blacklist referred to founded
on fact, or not.
"Resolved, That a commitiee of
three members of this County
Alliance be appointed to com
municate with Gov. Tillman and
request that he return answar
whether the newspaper reports of
said blacklist be true, aud if true
to furnish his reasons of given to
President Cleveland for his action
towards M. L. Donaldson, onr
Messrs. N. P. Whitmire, J. P. Ply 1er
and J. H. Latiraer, Committee :
Gentlemen-I have your letter
with the enclosed resolution pas
sed by the Greenville County Al
liance at its last meeting: "To
eommunicate with Gov. Tillman
and requeet that he return answer,
whether the newspaper reports of
said blaok-list be true, and if true
to furnish his reasons, as given to
President Cleveland, for his action
towards M. L. Donaldson, our
Similar communications have
been Bent to me from the County
Alliances of Pickens and of New
berry, and I shall furnish this
letter to The Cotton Plant as an
answer to all :
The effort appears J to be made
to link Mr. Donaldaon/as acittizen
of the Alliance, ?ndljpremise my
answer by saying that'the Alliance
has nothing to do with it, either
directly or indirectly, except
BO far as I felt justified in preven*
ting its further betrayal. To answer
your questions categorically, I
did ask Mr. Cleveland not to ap
point Mr. Donaldson to office.
My reasons were these-and
again they have no reference to
Mr. Donaldson's private charactor
but to hie public acts, and I dis
claim any feeling of personal
resentment or desire to injure
Last spring when delegates were
sleeted to the May State conven
tion Mr. Donaldson was repudia
ted by the Democracy of Green
villa and he failed to be elected
EI delegate either to his County
sonvention or to State convention.
He appealed to friends in other
parts of the State to help him re
trieve his failing political fortune,
and a small caucus of leading
Alliancemen from other counties
went to work and had him elected
member of the National Committee.
It was presumed by the conven
tion at least that he was in full
sympathy with its opposition to
Mr. Cleveland, and certainly he
neither said nor voted for him.
You are familiar with the instruc
tions given our delegation to
Chicago and our action under
those instructions. We not only
voted against Mr. Cleveland, but
worked against him, with two
excetpions. Judge then our sur
prise on reaching Chicago to see
Mr. Donaldson in open affiieation
with the Cleveland leaders, striv
ing with might and main to de
feat the purpose ot the convention
which had elected him on the
Again, when the State Alliance
met shortly afterwards, to my
suprise I saw him elected President
of ths State Alliance. When I
asked an explanation I was told
that it was the only possible way
to defeat the candidacy of an
avowed "Third part}r man," and
that Mr. Donaldson had pledged
himself not to seek any office, but
to devote his energiee-to building
up the Alliance. I wasnot surprised
however when two weeks later
he entered the field as a candidate
for Stale Senator from Greenville,
feeling, I suppose, that the double
endorsement of the State conven
tion in May and the State Allaince
in July, would reinstate him at
home. But the people of Greenville
wete true to themselves and he
was not elected.
It will thus be seen that Mr.
Donaldson played false with the
May convention by his action at
Chicago, and broke his pledge, to
the leading Alliancemen, nofto
Now, in addition to that, when
I remind you that Mr. Donaldson
as Senator, was the means of in
corporating in the railroad bill
in '91 the two objectionable
features which caused me to veto
it you cannot be surprised at my
action. It was upon his motion,
at the suggestion as I was told of
Bunch McBee, that the right of
appeal to the courts was put in
the bill. He also championed
that feature of the bill which kept
the election of Railroad Com
missioner in the hands of the
General Assembly, contrary to the
March platform," thus showing
his willingness to stifle the will of
the people. All of these things
taken together are sufficient as I
take it, to warrent my opposing
his appointment as a representa
tive of the ''Refrom Party," or 'of
the Alliance. Self-interest rather
than patriotism appears to have
governed his actions, and as the
Alliance has been sidetracked in
nearly ever ly other State by
self-seekers, and has been seriously
injured in this State from the
same cause I could not con
scientiously stand silent without
prostesiing against his being re
warded for treachery to the people
and to the Alliance.]
Regretting the necessity which
has forced a rehearsal of these
undisputed facts, which of them
selves ought to have prevented
Mr. Donaldson's elevation to the
position he holds, I will submit
to the verdict of the Reformers and
Alliancemen of the State as to the
wisdom and propriefy of my actioD.

Mr. Ingalls as a Prophet.
Now, that ex-Senator Ingalls is
st statesman out of a job, he '
feels that he can afford to be very
frank and candid.
Tho Kansas orator in a rec nt
etter says that slavery and
lecssion sre dead dogmas. Hence- .
:orth the negro will no% hold the
mlance of power. There is a
'rowing hostility to war issues ]
md even the race problem is
tactically extinct. The negro c
nust take his chances with the j.

^L^ingaTls goes on to say that C
he African can no longer be a t
lolitical factor, and with four a
ears of Democratic rule, c
Lnglo-Saxon supremacy will fc
lever again be disturbed. He n
ntimates that the suppression of b
he negro vote is all right, and fc]
uggests that under the same cir- ij
umstances it would be suppressed c
ti the north. As he puts it : n
"There will be no more politi- b
al campaigns fought in the ?
Tnited States upon the attitude of

rar, nor its relations to slavery a
nd secession, or reconstruction,
r the resumption of specie pay
lents, or the "disputed succession tl
o 1877. The dead past has buried J
ts dead. Social and economic ti
uestions are at the front. The P
?d us trial issue is the Aaron's s
od that has swallowed all the rest. n
'he masses have discovered that a
olitical equality does not bring ^
bout social fraternity ; that the
allot is not a medicine to cure all :
he diseases of the State, and that

The Mutations Of Time.
It has been stated in the pub
lie prints that Mr. R, G. Ward, th
author of the new Reform move
ment, known as the "Wage
Workers' League," is the nephew
of Judge Bond. We havo no
knowledge as to the truth of this
statemeut, and the fact, if true, so
far as we know, is not derogatory
to Mr. Ward. Judge Bond, we
have heard, has enjoyed social,
courtesies in this city which are
usually extended only to the best ;
but for reasons, which wo are too
young to be familiar with or to
appreciate, he is popularly and
politically damned in the State.
We believe he bad something to do
with putting, the South Carolina
Railway into chancery, something
to do with making ex-Governor
two or three times the salary of an
ordinary railroad president, and
if the Messrs. Wards are his nep
hews the irresitible conclusion is
that he had something to with put
ting them in their present lucrative
positions in the retinue of the
railway. All of which, being little
given to prejudices as we are, we
regrad as a perfectly natural series j
But we must say that under]
such a train of circumstances Mr.
Ward has exhibited an astonishing
amonnt of hardihood in turning
aside from his duties as road?
master of the South Carol ina I
Rail-way to inspire and fopter in
the State to which he is so new,
and of which, by his own admis
sion, he is not even a eitzen a J
political movement whose only
hope of success lies in the pos-|
sibility of obtaining the support
of Ike masses from the mountains I
to the seaboard. The fact is chiefly
interesting for ?he remarkable
coincidence that seventeen years
aflcr his political downfal ex-Gov
ernor Chambelain i-i once more
installed hore in the enjoyment
of, perhaps, the mest munificent
revenues that are drawn
from a public or quasi-public
smployment in the State and
mould be in a positon apparently
to again assume the actual general
ship of a movement intended to
regain control et tho political
fortunes of the State.

- THE -
Union Mutual Life Insurance Company,
OIF1 ZFOiR/TL^lSriD, MAUSTE.
Its Policies are the Most Liberal Now Offered
to the Public.
lethe only existing Company whose policies arc, orean be subject to the
MAINE NON-FORFEITURE LAW.
WHAT IT IS.
The Maine Non-Forfeiture law protects policies from forfeiture
by reason of default of payment of premiums. It provides that, after
three years' premiums have been paid, failure to pay any subsequent
premiums shall not forfeit a policy, but it shall continue in force for
its full amount until the reserve (less a small surrender charge) upon
the policy is exhausted.
The reserve is a sum made up of portions of each and every pre
mium paid upon a policy in anticipation of its maturity. Beginning
with a small portion of the first premium, it is increased each year by
the addition of each subsequent premium, and grows larger year by
year, until, at maturity, it &xactly equals the face of the poiicv. When
a policy is discontinued therefore, there is in the hands of the Com
pany a r>8ervo, greater or less, according to the character and age of
the policy. Instead of permitting the Company, upon non-payment
of premium, to confiscate this reserve, the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law
requires the Company to continue the policy in force until the policy
holder receives un equivalent for it in extended insurance.
How IT WORKS.
If a person, aged 35, pays three years' premiums upon a twenty
payment Life policy and then discontinues payment, the policy will
be continued 4 years and 257 days longer; if he pays five premiums,
and then discontinues, the insurance will continue 7 years and 357
If the policy is a twenty year endowment, same age, three years'
payments will give an extension of 8 years and 150days; five years'
payment 13 years, 300 days. If the policy is a 15 Year Endowment,
($1,000) same age, three years' payments will secure insurance to the
end of the endowment period and $13.68 in cash if insured lives till
that time, and in like manner ten years' payments secures insurance
for the full 15 vears and $592.17 in cash.
These extensions vary with the age of the insured, 1he class of
policy, and the number of payments made; they are stated in each
PoliftV ij?-J?'?arB flnrL /Injr.c. -fnr. nno"h nivrnViar . n? p*ymoitfc| oO Unit, the
pc^cy-holderihows ata glance exactly what he is entitled to if he
discontinues his payments at any time.
What if Has Done.
The Company Has Paid over Two Hundred Death Claims, in con
sequence of this law, aggregating in sums insured more than Four
Hundred Thousand Dollars.
In every case there had been a default in *he payment of pre
nium, and, except for this law, the policies would have been of little
)r no value. Instead of 'his, the insurance in each case was extended
o the time of death, and tilt Company was required to pay to the
)eneficiaries under the policies the sum of $418,335.77.
f&e Un o? li Lai Elusions as Comparen
WITH ZF-AJTID-TTIF YAL'TES.
It is the custom of many companies to provide in their policies
liar, upon discontinuance of payment of Premium, paid-up policies
ill be given, without the option of extension. This was the practice
f the Union Mutual before the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law-was en
cted, but it now substitutes for paid-up values the more advantage
ns plan of extended insurance. The objection to the paid-up system
i that the amount of paid-up insurance which is given upon the dis
mtinuance of payments upon a policy, unless it has been in force a
