Judge L. Charlton is at home
again after a visit of two or three
weeks duration to the Ridge and
portions of Aiken and Lexington
counties. The Judne is a good deal
of a philosopher in politics, and
has moreover a fair share of politi
oal acumen, which makes him see
things as they really are. In a
pleasaLt talk witn him since his
return, we gleaned some intelli
gence worth laying before our
To the question as to what
changes, if any, had taken place
in politics in the sections he had
visited,'he replied that there were
no material changes; the relative
strength of Tillmanites and Con
servatives remained about the same
as last year, though Tillman's St.
Louis speech had put him away
out of sight, to use a slang phrase,
and it was iu his judgment the
speech of his life.
As between Tillman aud Butler,
he said that Butler was stronger
than the conservative party; his
advocacy of free silver and other
measures of a like nature had done
this much for him.
The populists, he said, are few
and far between, and badly scat
tered. He heard a few individuals
say they would never vote the
democratic ticket again, but these
utterances were based on their dis
gust with and at Cleveland for his
desertion of the Chicago platform,
and did not mean that they pro
posed to desert the party, As for
himself he had no hesitancy in
saying that those senators and
members of the House who bore
the banner in the fight against the
repeal of the Sherman law were
the democrats and represent the
democratic platform, and if there
was any going out to be done, Mr.
Cleveland and those with him in
this matter might go ou4, as they
had already virtually done by re
pudiating the pledges given the
people at Chicago. Our people are
As to Hampton's manifesto, the
Judge said it was the merest bosh,
simply a new way of trying lo do
what the opposition had failed to
do in the two last campaigns. It
is, disguise it as you may, an effort
to bring the negro into politics,
and in its terms are phr?[eolory a
distinct and direct insult to all the
democrats who voted forref%rm in
thia State i n 1890 and 1892.

There has been ever since early
in the year an unmistakable drift of |
members of the 'dominant element'
of this Slate toward the populist

of tho situation Governor Tillman

efforts to restrain this drift. As
far back as May, 1892, there was a
determined effort by some pro

of thn democratic party to go
squarely into the populist party
