THOS. J. ADAMS, PROPRIETOR.
EDGEFIELD, S. 0., WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 1894.
VOL. LIX. NO. 12.

SPEAKS HIS MIND
ON EASTERN DEMOCHATS.
Denies That He is a Populist, But
Says That the Southern and
COLUMBIA, S. C., April 8.-Gov
ernor Till mau to-day gave an niu
terview to the pres6.
An extract from a letter from a
populist, in which !he writer said
that the only thing he did not ad
mire about the governor's political
course so far waB that he did not
have the moral courage to come
out squarely and call himself a
populist, was read to Governor
Tillman. Then he was asked if
he had seen all the references
made to him by the northern press
as the populist governor.
Governor Tillman rose and
walked up and down. His eye
flashed fire, and in the most de
termined manner he said:
"Yes, they call me a populist. I
will tell them that I am the truest
representative of Jeffersonian
democracy in the lead in Ameri
can politics to-day. Let me tell you,
I don't see anything ahead now
but for the southern democrats to
combine their forces with the
western populists and go into the 1
next national campaign on new ,
party lines (
"The northeastern democrats 1
and republicans are now together. 1
It is a combination of the moneyed '
DESPISES MUGWUMPS. F
The governor tqen turning, sud- 1.
denly__anrl iu - somewhat excited 8
and very forcible manner said:
"I despise Cleveland and his
mugwumps. He is no better than
the rankest republican. He has
destroyed the democratic party.
The south and west will be forced
now to unite and have a complete ^
reorganization of party lines. The
people who are afraid of the negro
and other questions will have to j
cast aside their fears on those ^
scores and come together on the j
one line of fighting the money
combination. Cleveland has been
workiug under the dictation of .
the New York bankers and
bargaining with them in the mat- .
ter of the issue of bonds. He
promised the bankers that if they
would take the bonds tqere would
be no more legislation on the silver
queston hy this congress. Congress ,
passed the seigniorage act and he
vetoed the bill indicating plainly \
the nature of hi? bargain with the
A SCHEME OF ROBBERY.
"The whole thing is such a
scheme of robbery that he ought to
be impeached for it. It is a
shame and a disgrace. The idea
of this great government having to
beg. a lot of shylockn for assistance
is so outrageous that there is not
any language too strong in which
to characterize it. Cleveland is
owned, body and soul by these
sconudrsls. Pie secured his nomina
tion at Chicago through th? in
fluence of a subsidized press, am'
what volee he lacked there, after
exhausting such, means, he bought
with promises of patronage, which
promises have been since redeemed
-the goods have been delivered.
His attempt to browbeat and de
bai C'I the senators and representa
tives was outrageous in the ex
treme. If those cowardly congress
men up there had any apprecia
tion of their duty to their con
stituency at home tlipy would im
"Consider the farce and treason
to the interests of the masses in
issuing bonds under a pretense of
increasing the gold reserve when
that same gold is paid in at one
window and drawn out at another
with silver certificates. And the
same process can go ou till the sil
ver certificates are exhausted and
the people have to pay the in
"Well, governor, what is your
idea of what ought to be done?"
The governor thought for an in
stant and then said:
"Well, Fil tell you. I think
that the silver men of this country
ought to meet in convention at
Memphis or St. LOU?B and organ
ize a fight to control the congress.
Let the west and the south cast
aside all questions upon whichthey
now have any differences and get
together. It is a fight between
gold and silver or povertv and
prosperity. One more word as to
Mr. Cleveland. I think that it is
most damnable and outrageous,
his being dictated to and bought
up by those bondholder?. It is
debasing to his high office. He is
abusing his power to dicker with
suoh people and barter away the
people's blood even upon the pre
text of financial relief.
ABUSED BY PAID HIRELINGS.
"'The newspapers which are
snarling and snapping at my heels
as being a p(Tp*4ist are the paid
hirelings of his oossep. I am a
populist in this sense, that I am for
the people's rights, but there are
many planks in the populist plat
form which I do not endorse. If
the silver congressmen will issue a
call tor a silver convention and
carry the war into Africa, we will
teach those b'ood-sucking gold
thieves a lesson in politics such
as they have not had since Jack
son's campaign against the banks

The Coyote or Barki tig Wolf.
The barking habit of coyote
is very doglike, and his old name
)( barking wolf is very appropriate.
When collecting manmals in
Wyoming, it was a very common
hing for us to hear the coyotes
irouud our camp set up a great
Darking in chorus at the first sign
)f daybreak, just when the roosters
jegin to crow on the farm. It is
i wild and uncultivated kind of a
jaTk, ending in a raiseno nom,
md resembles the cry of the jackal
>f India more nearly than any
)ther sound I ever heard.
But Sir Coyote is cute. He
:nows exactly the distance that
:onstitutes fair rifle range, and he
mows just as well whether the
stranger is armed as does the
stranger himself. When hunting
n the Shoshone Mountains in 1889,
[ wanted to kill a coyote for a
special purpose, but never ou?e
succeeded in getting a fair shot,
aven at 200 yard. For len days we
banged away industriously at every
DUO we saw, but never touched a
bair. Finally, at Corbett's ranch,
I left the expedition, and started
north by Btage, leaving behind me
rifle, revolver, knife, and even
scissors. Just two hours after I
bad said good-bye to my shooting
irons, and taken the buckboard
"stage," we saw a coyote ahead of
us, close to the trail. Seeing us
coming, he selected a soft spot,
sat down within thirty yards of
the trail, and waited for us.
We drove up, stopped as we got
opposite him and still he did not
run. That villain eat there coolly
and looked us over without moving
a muscle, but with a leer that
plainly said, "Now don't you wish
you had your old gun?" When we
got through making faces at him
aud wishing for a gun, a revolver,
or even a common stone lo fire at
him, we drove on ; and then he got
up and went on hunting for jack
rabbits. To this day I have been
puzzling over the question, "How
did that gray rascal find out so
quickly that both the driver and
I were totally unarmed?" That he
did know it perfectly well I have
no doubt whatever, for no coyote
ever waited like that for a man
with a gun.

Conservatives and Reformers
Join Hands in a Series of Reso
1 ut ions Upholding the Law.
At a mass meeting held in Gray

following resolutions were intro
luced aud read by Mr. A. C. Stall
vorth, conservative, and unani
Resolved 1. That we have met
ogether in this emergency not as
Reformers, but simply as law

ration of the fact, that we stand

nay be necessary in the discharge

2. That while we deplore and do
ondemn the blind and rabid par
isau spirit that has driven men of

ard of the rights of others and of
he common weal, and while some
f us cannot approve of every act
f the present State Executive and
f every law that has been gassed
y ?the. Reform Legislature, yet we
mst say that upon the whole, if
be laws that have been enacted
rere properly respected and exe
uted, much good would result
herefrom, and that very much
arm must result from the utter
isregard of law that we are pained
) see manifested by even some of
ie most prominent and influential
f the citizons of thc State.
3. That we .earn with mortific:i
on and pain of the recent out

The recent disturbance at Dar
ingtou is but the outcome of the
,-enom poured forth from (he
iolumns of the several anti-reform
papers of the State. They are the
levil's bellows that blow up the
[ire of strife. What a pity there is
aot a tax on lying-what an income
[he State would get from these pa
pers, enough to pay the State debt
ind over. It is passing strange
that men who pose as leaders and
teachers of the people should teach
them to resist the laws of the State.
Such has been the motive of the
anti papers for the pa6t four years.
It is not because the laws are
unjust, but simply because they
are opposed to the controlling of
the State's government by the la
boring class. There is no denying
the fact that the present Legisla
ture and B. R. Tillman are working
with might and main for the pooi
people's good. As proof, look at
the reduction in pay of salaried
officers from Governor down. Look
how taxes are gathered where hith

moneyed men have combined anc
are combining to throttle Tillman
and reformation". Watch now, also,

government from honest hands in

are being educated now to our po
litical interest and will not sell our
birth-right to corporations and

Where Birds Get Drunk.
St Louis Globe-Democrat.
"Birds get drunk sometimes as
well as man ; at least they do
down where I live," said Harvey
Ellis, of Florida.'Til tell you how
I know it. There is a bush or
shrub known as the pride of China
which is quite common down in
my State. This bush in the winter
is covered with berries on which
the birds delight to feed. These
berries are commonly called by us
madberries from the fact that over
indulgence in them produces
precisely the same effect upon the
birds that liquor does on man. One
day last winter my stableboy
brought a bluejay home which he
said he fouud fluttering about in
the road. It would lie in the boy's
hand seemingly perfectly conten
ted, with eyes elated and fearless,
and its head wagged about in a
ridiculous manner in its efforts to
hold it up. It \vas a common North
American drunk, nothing more.
The bird had indulged in the mad
berry until it was reduced to an
almost helpless state of intoxica
tion. Thousands of respectable
northern robins which migrate to
Florida in the winter, and who
would blush to do such V thing at
home, are found lying about in
the grossest state of intoxication
fiom tho same cause."

Did Secretary Morton Get Gay?
FORT DODGE, Ia., April 9 -
Edward Peterson, of this county,
applied by letter to Secretory
Morton, of the Department of
Agriculture, for the position of
Chief Russian Thistle Exter
minator for i he State of Iowa.
Secretary Morton has replied in
a sarcastic letter, in which he says
that the Hausbrough bill will pro
bably be amended to provide an
appropiatiou for the destruction
of the cockle burr, foxtail grass,
and rattlesnakes, which secrete
themselves in all kinds of grass.
The Government will probably,
in its munificence and tender cai

also distribute in original pacl
ages autidotes for snake bites t
farmers; also permit each farme
to draw directly upon the publi
treasury for each day's work in th
extermination of weeds upon hi
or any other farm. Possibly befor

Cavalry and Cold. Steel.
If you allow a cavalry goldie
to forget the value of cold steel
and rely on fireaction you destorj
the dash and elan which mak<
him formidable, and should b(
big characteritic. Therefore
Frederick 130 years ago ordered
his troopers always at attack, and
while he discountenanced the use
of carbines, gave them the neces
sary support which fire lends, by
organizing a light artillery to at
tend their movements.
Napoleon has told us that
cavalry cannot reply to fire, and
can only fight with the steel," and
fully recognizing where lay the
weakness of his horsemen, he
gave them an auxiliary in the
ihape of horse artillery which, so
Par from hampering their move
ments, added to their boldness
ind enterprise when acting inde
pendently ahead of his vast armies.
The co-operation of the two arms
vas also then found to work in
mother direction to the benefit of
joth, for while projectiles loosen
iompact formations and render the
ittack of squadrons more danger
)us, the cavalry force the scattered
mites to draw together and present
tn easier target for the guns.

which had been so damagad that
it had to be removed. ,The wo
man, who had been a*bousemaid
in a hotel, had been struck in the
face by a descending elevator,
which caused tho injury that led
to tho operation. The doctors
killed the bird, and, before its
body was cold, i's breastbone was
applied to the woman's face, and
what remained of the skin of the
old organ was drawn over it. The
operation has proved perfectly
sucessful, with every appearance
of the woman's being provided
with avery useful nasal appendage.
