Marlboro Sits Down on the

News and Courier. N
BENXETTSVILLE, June 27.-It is
evident that an earnest effort is
making to innoculate the campaign
meetings with respectability. The
moon which sheds its light upon
the course leading to the guberna
torial chair is-slightly spattered
with gore, and Governor Tillman
was pretty sanguinary in his man
ner and method to-day, but all
things being considered the dis
cussion is getting a higher seat in
the synagogue of peace, harmony,
and respectability. The crowd set
the speakers a good example. It
numbered about eight hundred and
*was composed of the most sterling
farmers of Marlboro. A special
request was made fora discussion
of issues and au omission of per
sonalities. A very spicy flavor was
still left to a good deal of the de

part good feeling were the order of

in political faith, they seem b
upon reviving the traditional !

the bird and the beast which figtrW
in their respective pet names.
The regular order of programme
was then taken up with the intro
SECRETARY OF STATE J. E. TINDAL
asa candidate for Governor. ^In
1876, he said, the people of South
Carolina had wrested the govern
ment from the hands of aliens and
spoilsmen. In 1886 was started a
movement which resulted in a rev
olution four years ago which threw
everything into excitement aud up
roar. This was the beginning of
a new era. There was an old South
Carolina, a great South Carolina,
it is true, but that ie passed now.
The order of things was changed
by the war. The imperative duty
now was to build up a new and
greater South Carolina and build
the new structure after new plans
The object of the Reform move
ment was to enable them to keep
abreast of modern methods. There
was only one thing in which the
North was in advance of the South.
This was in the application of
science to trade and agriculture.
In everything else the South ex
celled. One of the things done by
the movement was to tackle cor
porate power. This was followted
by a history of the Coosaw casa.
Another thing which had been
done was to take the government
out of the hands of the few and
place it in the hands of the many.
The tendency of the times was to
wards rings. They must see toit
that they retained the authority
which had been thus secured.
Having done these things, having
placed the government in the hands
of the people, whv should we have
thie continued bitterness? It can
only result from the fact that one
get of men are striving to dominate
over others. There cannot be two
parties in South Carolina. One of
the unfortunate results of this
bitterness was the animosity which
had grown up between country and
town people. This was wrong and
greatly to be deplored. It had
grown out of the practice of taunt
ing the country. The farmers and
Alliance had not stopped to reason
about the matter, but had laid the
blame sometimes where it did not
belong. The Alliance was given
credit for the spread of good feel
ing between the North aud Soi
and it was owing to the un(
standing and good feeling spr
by its magic word "brother" t
the Democratic party had eucce
ed in the last national election.
He wanted to waru them agai
allowing the Alliance to join t
political party. If a party adop
every demand of the Alliance t
Alliance should be held distil
as an organization. A politi'
party would always betray 1
trus-t reposed in it. Something li
this had been exemplified in t
Democratic party recently. It h

vices, and pledged himself to tre

Mr. Tindal was listened to ve
attentively and a hearty dappil
of hands followed the close of h
JOHN GARY EVANS.
Senator Evans, of Aiken, wi
the next speaker. After assurauci
of the fellowship which he felt f<
the people of this section he pr<
nouoced a glowing eulogy upc
the old Confederate soldiers. Tl
anly men who were true Democrat
to-day were the men who stoo
apon the Ocala platform. An
.nan who does not stand upon th
Alliance platform was not a tm
patriot. If the sub-treasury syf
tem was adopted it would ruin th
North and mak* the South th
richest country in the world. Tb i
jountry was too big for any law t
mit all of it. Re was inclined t
Delieve that Purr should have beei
illowed to establish his Westen
Republic. He sometimes believe)
:hat the best thing for this countr
vould be the establishment o
;hree republics in it. So much fo:

,he State. A Northern school
;eacher could come down here and
;lose every school door in the State
:o the white children of South
karolina. He strongly advocated
i constitutional convention.
Then he took up the dispensary
law. They were all familiar with
with it. It had been declared un
constitutional by the Supreme
Court, the highest tribunal in the
State. He knew the Court was
made lo pass up jn laws, but he did
aot know that it had the right tc
mact them. The legislative au
thority was not vested in it. He
did not mean to criticise the bench
harshly. A committee of the ablest
lawyers in the State, in Charleston,
had declared the law constitutional.
Every circuit judge in the State,
except one, had confirmed that
opinion. The Supreme Court had
decided it was an inalienable right
to sell whiskey. He cited other
decisions of the Court lo show that
it was illegal. He quoted figures
in plenty to show the decrease in
drunkenness under the dispensary
law. It was a good law and they
were going to have it. You can't
legislate sobriety in an old soak.
When they took up the subject
they had found the State of South
Carolina almost in delirium tre
mens. If they had been allowed
to do it they would have reformed
the people. In closing he pledged
himself to the "Reform" party,
whether elected or not. He was
always ready to jump on anyone
who attacked the "Reform" party
and stick his gaffs in him to the
hilt. This sentiment brought out
next took up the word. He waB
evidenily out for blood again. He
did not seem to be satisfied with
his little tilt with Evans on the
previous day. He began by remark
ing that Evans had said that there
was a State House ring,
Evans, interrupting: "Mr
Ellerbe, I never did anything of
Ellerbe: "Why don't you get
up and deny it then?"
Evans, rising: "I warned the
farmers against allowing a ring to
be formed. I did not say that
there was a ring."
Continuing the speaker said he
was glad his friend had the man
hood to deny it. He then took
his charge that Evans had vo
against Tillman. They nil ki
that one of the first strugg
made by Tillman was for
agricultural college. Yet his fri?;
had voted against him.
Evans: "Yes, and I'd do
Ellerbe; "Yes, boys, he woi

Gen Ellerbe then consumed th
rest of his time in discusin,
finance and in a description of hi
fight with the banks and railroads
At one lime he created laughter b?
getting some figures badly mixed
but on the whole he made a strong
3peech from his standpoint. It wai
i conservative talk, and it tool

?*LUJ??VV*?, ..... . ? . IWSL^T!- r
It was nearl/ 2 o'clock when the
turn of the Senatorial caudidateE
jame. It was Senator Butler's
time to speak first. He was greeted
?vith a fairly general round o?
hand-clapping. After speaking o?
the beauty and fertility of
Marlboro County, he predicted
that times were going to improve.
After some other general talk the
Bpeaker took up the discussion of
the monetary question. He advo
cated free silver, asserted that he
had fought for it with might and
main.-The cause of complaint
which he had against the national
banking system, or rather the true
weakness of the national banks,
arose from the power of the banks
to expand or contract their currency
Turning to another subject Gen
Butler said that Mr Ellerbe was
right when he (Ellerbe) said that
the public officer who discharged
the auties cf his office with fidelty,
honesty and impartiality had done
everything that could te expected
About this time it looked like
rain and everything was being
hurried up as much as possible.
Gen Butler said he was not going
to speak long. He had been Senator
for eighteen years. His record was
before the people. He had tried
to do his duty. If anything could
be fou^d in his official life which
should be criticised it should be
made public. If Governor Till
man could make any charg?s
against him he should make them.
Up to the present time he had
made none that needed a refuta
tion. But he would speak of them.
Governor Tillman had said that
a'corruption fund was being raised
in Wall street and by the millionai
res co buy votes with and to reelect
Butler. Wallstreet liked him no
more thar it liked Tillman. In fact
he expected it liked Tillman the
be?t of the two. When the Gover
nor had to fund the State debt he
went straight to Wall street to ac
oomplish it. On the contrary he
had been receiving threatening
letters from Wall street telling him
what the would te do to him if he
did not leave off his fight for sil
ver. Governor Tillman had further
charged that he had brought Beven
or eight hundred people to the
meeting at ROCK Hill. Pie failed to
see the worng in it, and still he
would say that he had nothing
whatever to do with the presence of
theso people there. Some of them
were from one county ond soi
were from another. They all hac
right lo be there, and the railroa
had a right to bring* them on fi
passes if the railroads saw fit to i
so. He had nothing to do with :
lie had nothing to do with corpoi
tions, nor they with him.
Another charge made again
him was that he had not vot<
against the confirmation of Jud]
Simonton. He had known Judi
Simonton for forty years and 1
had never known anything again
his public or private honor. E
wanted to know, if Governor Til
man thought Judge Simonton'so]
pointment so monstrous, why
was that he had never proteste
against his confirmation. He fe
one had never seen such a protes
Tillman had charged that h
(Butler) had been in office so lon
that he was out of sysmpathy wit
the people. The fact that he ha
been, elected three times UE
animou8ly did not show that th
people thought he was out o
sympathy with them. Could Gov
ernor Tillman point to one act o
his which showed he was out o
sympathy with the people?
It had been insinuated that h<
had drawn an enormous salary. Ti
this he would simply say that thi
people of South Carolina paid i
little over $84 on his salaro pe
annum, while they paid Governo:
Tillman $4,000. He had done batt!?
for free silver before the "Reform'
party and Alliance were everhearc
of. They were all now getting or
his platform, and he was ready to
welcome them. He wanted to pre
dict that the next great struggle
would be on this fine. It would
settle who was to rule, lhe masses
or the money power.
The last fow years had witnessed
a remarkable political spectacle in
this country. In 1884 the Demo
crats had elected Cleveland Presi
dent. At the end of his term he
had gotton his party in such a fix
that the Republicans elected their
ticket easHy^.^ Thfij^LJk^^rn
sleeted Harrison. - When his., term
?vaBup he bad wound, nis party jup
iountry. What did they do? They
?vent straight ahead and re-elected
Cleveland. He was directly op
posed to them on the money ques
tion, and they knew it; and still
they elected him. It was a most
remarkable occurrence. He. did
?ot believe Cleveland was dis
honest. The President was gov
srned by his New York environ
ments. If he had anything to do
with the Democratic party in
future he intended to read the
Riot Act. Cleveland, Hill, and the
rest of them were tarred with
the same stick. He now had in his
mind a Western man whom he
considered the right man to lead
As for talking about a coalition
between the South and West that
was what many of them had been
working for for years. It was one
thing to talk,another to act. In the
schemes it must not be forgotten
that the West was iu favor of
pensions, and that system was one
of the greatest burdens the South
had to bear. He had been told
that the people of Marlboro wanted
the candidates to discuss the issues
and not fly off on personalities.
That conformed exactly to his
ideas. He never heard a public
speech without learning some
thing from it. He complimented
Col Thomas's speech. It was true
that there had been a little spirit
shown between two of the Guber
natorial candidates, (Evans and
Ellerbe,) but that there was no
real bitterness. It was a lawyers'
quarrel. He closed with a power
ful appeal for party .unity in the
was the last speaker. As a ma
jority of the people present had
come to hear him particularty the
crowd had held togeher very well.
Exerybody appeared to be on the
tiptoe of expectation and to know
as if by intuition that the Governor
was to whoop things up. He seemed
to be in good trim and went to
work very differently from the
manner he had employed on the
preceding day. When he had been
introduced a rousing cheer was
given him. The crowd encouraged
him with words of approbation all
the way through. He said he had
been to Benuetsville so often and
know the people so well that he
begun to feel almost like he was
at home when there.
A voice : ',We are all glad to see
Governor Tillman continued: He
knew jit had been said '.hat ho had
been converted and gotton religion
in their court house. [Cheers.]
He knew, he had received the in
spiration there which had given
him strenghth to fight the
oligarchy. [Cheers.] They had
sent him to discuss with Richard
son long years ago. They had come
near beating Richarson without
having any candidate in the field

as ''That is right!" ?-You will get

was rocl?throwing and bitterness.
He saidee knew he had discussed ,
ihe issue's' at Rock Hill. He had
not started the throwing of rocks.
But whin the opposition had
started it|he pitched back one to
their twit LAPP'au8e0 He had ;
been slandered more than
Chamberlain had ever been, and i
be did riot care that (snapping his
fingers)-/for it. ("Cheers.] You

A voice : "The trouble is all want 1

Tillmau : "That's just it. They
wanted it before ^hej got out, and
that is thy they are so mad now."
? Continuing he said he did not
hate these people who had slander
ed him so. He was sorry for them.
Just here the speaker said some
thing about the people giving him
a hint if he talked too long. This
called for the assurrance from an
enthusiastic youth that he would
listen till midnight if the Governor
would talk that long. Gov. Till
man said he was going to discuss
the. issus. He believed he could
no it intelligently. He had some
sense. He had studied these ques
tions. Yes, he would euen claim
to be a statesman. A statesman
wrs one who could interpret the
will of the people into law. He
believed ,. he had done this,
A voice: "We are goin to send
you to the Senate."
Tillman: -Oh, I know that."
Governor Tillman then gave a
sketch of political parties in the?
United States, bringing them
down to the election of Cleveland
in 1884. Ho (Cleveland) might
have been honest then, but he was
not honest now.[Applause] Cleve
land was either not honest now, or
else he was the most damnable
traitor this country had ever seen.
[Cheers.] The speaker then
launched out into a definition of
money. Money was something you
could buy things with. Anything
stamped by the Government and
with the Gevernment's promise to
pay was money. Who had silver
been stricken down-that same sil
ver which had made good money
ever since the days of Abraham,
Isaac and Jacob? He would tell
them. He then entered into quite
an extended history, the gist
,of which was that the Eng
lish Government was the credi
tor nation of the world. The
moneyed men of Lombard street
had crossed over and bought the
Congress of the United States
through Wall street. The money
changers of Lombard and Wall
streets had bought the nominations
of Cleveland and Harrison [Ap
plause.] Lifting up his voice and
displaying a silver dollar he
shouted that it was called a

It is true that Eugene Gary has
been elected Justice of the Supreme
Court ; that John Gary Evans is
State Senator; that John Gary
Watts is Assistant Adjutant Gen

Governor's private secretary ; that
George Evans succeeded his broth

Ernest Gary has been placed upon
the Circuit Bench. But notwith
standing all this, we believe that
if the proper influence is brought
to bear upon them by Gov. Till

A Rattlesnake, Exasperate
Strikes His Fangs Into His
Forest and Stream.
Ara venomous serpents suscep
tible to their own poison? In other
words, what would be the result if
one of them should happen to
bite himself-would it kill him?
Indeed, it would..
I remember seeing that very
thing happen once, when I was
in the northern part of Wyoming,
north of the Rattlesnake Range of
mountains. We had been making
a survey for a wagon road from
Rawlins, a town on the Union
Pacific Railroad, northward to
Fort McKinney, and had.finished
the work and were returning and
had reached the place I have des
cribed. The region Beemed to be
wholly given over to the occupancy
of prairie doge, burrowning owls,
and rattlesnakes. I never saw so
many snakes anywhere except in
the swamps of Louisiama during
an oveiflow. You could see them
crawling about in all directions,
and they were constantly spring
ing their rattles in the grass under
foot and frightening our horses,
for you know a horee fears these
creatures quite as much as a man
In riding along I happengd
see a particularly large rattler,
sunning himself on a spot of bare
ground, and tried to ride up near
enough to strike him with my
quirt. But my horse was afraid,
and I could not make him ap
proach the snake. I did not blame
bim very much, either, for the old j
Crotalus threw himself into a coil,
raised his head, sounded his rattle,
i?% as soofi'
aim with my'shl
aver to one of the wagons, and got
from the driver his long four-in
hand whip, and with this I returned
to the snake. I forhim about
where I had left him, and when
he saw me he tried to run away.
They are sluggish creatures,
however, and cannot go very fast.
I had a fancy to tease him a j
little, and I swung the whip so
that the end of the lash in falling
would tap him gentl you the nose.
As soon as he felt it, he snapped
back like a watchspring into a coil
sounded his war note, and .turned
his head quickly from side to side
to discover his enemy, his forked |
tongue darting incessantly from
I was some twenty or thirty feet
away, keeping perfectly quiet, and
he did not .appear to notice me at j
all. I fancy their range of vision
must be very ehort. After a few
minutes he lowered his ugly head
to the ground and prepared to glide
away in another direction. I let
him get fairly started, then I tap
ped him as before, and again he
coiled to strike.
This was repeated a number of |
times. The snake always started
away in a new direction, only to
meet that uncomfortable and ex
asperating little tap. After each
stroke he would prepare to fight
and would look in vain for his
assailant ; and with each encoun
ter his anger seemed to increase.
At last, having tried unsuccess
fully every avenue of escape he
became beside himself with rage.
His rattle buzzed incessantly. He
raised his head nearly half his
length above the ground and
swayed from side to side. His eyes
glittered like jewels, aud his forked
tongue flashed from his mouth like
miniature lightning. His head be
came broad and flat, and his whole
body seemed to swell with venom.
Suddenly, in an access of fury,
he turned his head, and with the
full force of a swinging blow of his
neck, like the down stroke of a
sabre, he drove his fangs into his
own body. He kept his hold and
did not withdraw his fangs. His
body writhed and twisted for an
instant, and his muscles contracted
violently once or twice. Then his
head sank down the fire faded
from his eyes his coils relaxed,
and he was dead.
I was astonished. I did not think
it was possible that the poison
could bc so instantly [effective in
a creature of such sluggish cir
ThereNcan be no mistake about
it; he meant to kill himself, and
he did, too. Of the last Ihave*the
most satisfactory proof, for f s I
picked him up and examined hiin
carefully from ona end to the other
there was not a mark (save the
bite) or a bruise on him. The
light strokes that he had received
from the whip were not enough to
hurt him, still less to kill him, yet
he was dead, for I put him in my
saddlebags and carried him to
camp, and then skinned him, and
I am sure he could not play 'pos
sum through all that.
