The Spartanburg Herald and the
Greenville News are now calling
on Gov. Hampton to organize his
National League clubs. These are
the same old clubs that Hampton
tried to organize last year, and the
people, with common consent, sat
down on him. This proposition is
stale and won't even fizz.
It is stated that Gen. James
Simons has been elected president
of the News and Courir r company,
and that he has promulgated an
edict that no more lies shall be
published about Gov. Tillman and
the dispensary. The friends of
the News aud Courier fear it will
have to be reduced in size if this
edict be carried out.
Gov. Tillman has offered to the
press for publication all the dis
patches received or sent by him
during, previous, and subsequent
to the Darlington riot and relating
to it. This ought to receive the
commendation of the papers op
posed to him politically for it ap
pears that he has nothing to con

no such commendation has been
The State Reform Executive
. Committee that met in Columbia

composed of delegates from each
county, double its representation

meetings will be held on the 4th of
August, and the county convention
to elect the delegates to Columbia,
on the 6th of August.
The Port Royal road which in
cludes the Augusta and Knoxville
road is the only railroad in the
State that of its own motion offer
ed to transport troops for Gov.
Tillman over its lines during the
Darlington riot. The fact thai
Gov. Tillman unbottled this road
-released it from the tentacles of
its great enemy, the Central, no
doubt had something to do with
this generosity. Corporations may

The Yorkville Yeoman calls
Presiden t Cleveland the black-leg
of the Democratic party. It begins
to appear as if our President didn't
belong to any party.
Governor Tillman says he will
not pardon the constables engaged
in the Darlington riot if they have
a fair trial and are found in the
wrong. He does not intend to up
hold violations of the law, and es
pecially in a State's officer.
The Rev, Thomas Dixon, D. D.,
the most celebrated of the younger
preachers iu New York, speaking
of the South Carolina dispensary
law, says :
The law of SoutL Carolina
promises to give the death-blow to
I the saloon. Knowing this, the
liquor men, not only of that State,
but of New York as well, are ar
rayed in deadly opposition to a
fearless, just, and honest governor,
who is seeking to perform his duty
to the people. Naturally we hear
the same old twaddle about invad
ing private rights of citizens. If
we admit the right of a man to
'debauch and corrupt his fellow
men, to ruiu homes and scatter
families, ihen private rights have
been invaded in South Carolina,
[and Governor Tillman has been
the leader of the invaders. If we
deny this right, Governor Tillman
has done hie duty fearlessly and
well, and praise and credit are
With the endorsement of Dr.
Dixon Gov. Tillman may well be
encouraged to say in regard to the
abuse, condemnation, and vituper
ation heaped upon him by ihe News
and Courier and Columbia State,
"None of these thinga move me."
Negroes Called On, Too.
Darlington Hcraltl, Anti.
Mr. Ivohn, one of the corespon
dents of the News and Courier,
who was in ^arlington during the
recent trouble, made a very great
mistake when he said that the
colored people were indifferent
about the sad tragedy in which two
of our citizcus were murdered. Ii
fl he had seen some of the best and
most intelligent coloced men of
the lown gathering at the depot,
on that sad afternoon, with arme
in their hands, he would uevei
have done them the injustice ol
saying they were indifferent. They
were just the reverse and if any oi
those spies had fallen into theil
quite a number of our colored fel
low citizens remained all night
with a squad that were trying to
overtake the murderers.
Butler on Tillman.
News and Courier.
Senator Butler says he is willing
to compare records with Governor
Tillman any time or place. This
remark was called forth by the
recent admonition ^f the Governor
that Senator Butler should remain
in Washington and attend to his
Senatorial duties in anticipation
'of an indefinice furlough. The
Senator said he had read the state
ment purporting to come from
Governor Tillman and in reply re
marked: "Yes, it is very natural
that Governor Tillman should not
want me in the State of all men in
the world. I puncture the bubbles
he blows up, and of course he does
not relish thaUI'll compare records
of absence from our posts of duty
with him. When I have been away
from my post it has been iu the in
terest of peace and harmony among
our people, not buying whiskey
with which he debanches them and
stir up strife and leading to blood
shed and violence among them.
Besides thia I can be absent two
thirds of my time and do more
Igood to the people than he could
by being on dutv all time."
The Atlanta Constitution gives
the following timely hint to far
mers in this part of the country :
"Tho recent untimely cold snap
has played havoc with the grain
and forage cross in the West.
Wheat and oats have been so
materially damaged that the out
put will hardly suffice for home
consumption. Tho prices of food
'crops this year will probably reach
a high figure. This is something
for Southern farmers to consider
very seriously. They make a great
mistake at any time when they
send to tho West for graiu and
forage, but if they do it this year
the consequences will be ruinous.
Before it is too late our farmers
should strain every nerve to pre J
duce food and forage crops that
will sustain every man and beast
in the South and leave a surplus
for export to the West,"
Now, let us have poaco. Lot the
towns-and tho country, foo-put
down tho "blind tigers." Then
thoro will not bo any necessity
fora visit from thc constables.
Illicit whiskey sellers ought not
be tolerated, whether we believe
in tho dispensary law or not.

CAMDEN, April 14.-The funeral
of Gen. Joseph. Kershaw, ex
judge of the Fifth circuit, was
held at 4 p. m. from the Episcopal
church. Governor Tillman, Secre
tarp of State Tindal, Superinten
dent of Education Mayfield and

having come over on the morning

Columbia and Sumter were also
present. The remains lay in state

to muffled drums. As the cortege
moved down Broad street it" was
noticed thal, all places of business
were closed, but the sidewalks
were throngod with citizens of the
town and country, both male and
female, and of both races. It had
been arranged to have all the bells
tolled, but by spacial; request this
was not done.
There were in the procession
seventy odd vehicles and several
hundred perfoot, besides many
who went to the ^cemetery by other
. routes to avoid the dust.
Gen. Kershaw was a good Mason,
having at one time, for twenty
years, been master of the local

[ Master of the State. Up to the
. time of his death he was a warden

A Proposition for Peace.
The State has passed through a
terrible ordeal in the last ten days.
While its troubles were great
enough, there was danger of worse.
However, the danger has passed
for the pressnt. Men are getting
"cool again and now is the time to
ask, "What's ahead?" Is strife to
continue, or is peace to reign?
That is for the conservatives to say.
They can prove themselves con
servatives in action as well as in
name. The doors of the* reform
church, so lo speak, are open, and
all may enter who wish to do so.
In 1892 the conservatives
adopted the reform platform. If
they were sincere and earnest in
that, then what difference have
they with the reformers? The ex
tremists will never get together,
they are irreconcilable. Time spent
in trying to get them together is
time wasted. There are conserva
tives who hate every man who
voted for Tillman, and there are
reformers who look with suspicion
on every reformer who has au anti
for a friend. All of this is wrong.
Differences of opinion should not
be allowed to produce personal
The reform executive committee
has provided a way for all conser
vative people to come together.
The rules and regulations for the
raform convention provide that at
the club meetings for the purpose
of electing delegates to the county
convention all shall be entitled to
participate who "voted for tho re
form delegates in the August
primary |of 1893, and all others
who will pledge themselves to
abide by and support the reform
ticket of the State reform conven
tion of 1894."
We believe that clause offers a
chance for an end of the strife
in this State; many conservatives
are wi'ling to act with the re
formers and desire an opportunity
to part company with the more
violent members of their faction,
and will welcome a chance to do
so. The offer is made to them and
there is no reason why they should
not receive it it.

THE PALACE, CHESTER, April 5.
Sir : I need not tell you that the
liquor papers in this country have
been rubbing their hands over and
making all the capital they can
out of South Carolina riots, while
the Prohibitionists have endeavor
ed to wash their hands of all res
ponsibility. I therefore thought it
it necessary to write a second letter
to the Times, a copy of which I
enclose herewith. I hope you will
think that the Bpecial circumstan
ces justified my reference to youi
letter, which otherwise I should of
course have regarded as strictly
private and confidential. V
I see with much pleasure in the
morning's Times that everything
is now quiet and sincerely hope
that tho whiskey man and the
party of disorder generally will
have learned a valuable lesson. You
are doubtless aware that in Sweden
"The Brandy King" and his allies
fought against the licensing reform
for no less than fifteen years, but
were at last completely vanquished.
May I venture to suggest the
expediency of an authentic ac
count of the riots being sent as
soon as possible to this country in
order tc correct misrepresentations
and false impressions? I need not
say that if I can be of any use in the
matter my servicee are readily at
I have tba honor to remain, sir'

If by any possiblity-through ?
combination with the whiskej
men-a prohibition law should be
enacted,[the whiskey men would
haye gained their point. Without
money and without officers, the
prohibitionists could no more
enforce prohibition than Tillmac
can enforce obedience to the dis
pensary law. The people of the
cities would snap their fingers at
a prohibitory law, aud they would
soon make it so odious that the
bar-rooms would be opened again
Let prohibitionists be on theil
guard against the Greeks bringing
gifts, and let them look out foi
The dispensary is not nearly sc
drastic a measure as prohibition,
but it is easier to enforce, and will
result in more good to the morality
and temperance of the people.
It is a dull prohibitionist that
cannot see that there is now in
reality no prohibition party in
South Carolina, and it would be a
very credulous prohibitionist who
could be led to hope that the sup
port of the liquor men would be
advantageous to a cause to which
