??Thc Tillmauites* Hate fop (.'on.
Mit. EDITOR: In last week's
Vhronlde, Mr. Bacon says:
'.We know, literally, of no class of
men who have been so wronged by Till
nianism as the quiet, Conservative citi
zens of towns and villages. And not
content with hatred and malice and
abuse towards the?e Conservative citi
izens eif towns and villages, it seems
Mint Tillinanism is rapidly going from
had to worse."
Now. if this hatred by the T ?11
manit.es for ti e conservatives is so
-and I know it is not the case to
any CMi si lera ble extent it might
possibly have been brought about,
not through tb? teachings of Till
man, but by tho eternal, perpetual,
hateful abuse and ridicule toe con
servative papers, tor the las?, four
years have daily and weekly heap
ed upon the Reformers,orTillman
ites, as Mr. Bacon prefers to call
those not belonging to the conser
vative faction. For instance, here
is a mild specimen from the pen of
the would-be-esteemed mild-man
nered, lamb-like high-toned gentle
man, Editor Bacon, as published in
his paper of the 22ud May bast :
HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!
".Since Judge Golf's very righteous
decision as regards the registration law
of South Carolina has brought vulgar
tyrants to their senses and brutal bul
lies to their knees, what are the so-call
ed Democratic Executive Committee of
ICdgetield going to do about their pri
mary on the 16th July? With their
ability gone to basely turn the regis
tration laws against their own while
brethren, what are the Tilimaruts go
ing to do anyway? Gentlemen, the
Conservatives cannot be expected to
take too much on faith. They know
the parties they are dealing with too
well ; and unless a perfectly fair con
tract is proposed, then, let come what
may, the Conservatives will control the
Constitutional Convention, and the
Tillmanites will know what it is to be
in a helpless minority."
Actually shouting hozanuahs at
the overthrow of the Registration
law-our only protection against
negro rule ami negro domination.
Bul fiiend Bacon was a little loo
previous in his glorification. And
the Registration law is still the law
of the land, and only those negroes
who are duly enrolled and have
their registration certificates will
be entitled to vote at the election
of delegates to the constitutional
The above, as stated, is only a
mild specimen of the rough abuse
and vinification Mr. Bacon has
poured out through his paper, for

months and years against the
Tilhnanites. But his anathemas
have only served to cement the
Reformers and make them more
determined than ever. So let him
go on with his mud-slinging to the
gratification of his own sweet will
-but he will very likely gather
what he sows.
HA-HA! HA-HA! HA!
Will the Conservatives Vole at
That's what we want to know,
Mr. Editor, and if you can give us
any in'ormation on that line we
will thank you to do 60.
We notice that the two conserv
ative county organs-the Edgeiield
"Chronicle" and the EdgeHeld
''Monitor"-both advise the con
servatives not. to havfi anything to
do with the appteaching Primary
election for the nomination of can
didates for election to the consti
tutional convention. And Capt,
George Lake, a prominent conserv
ative, in a recent communication
to the "State" says: ''The Con
servatives here will not go into a
primary, and the Conservative, so
called, who will consent lo be a
candidate before the primary had
just as well join in with the enemy
and be done with if. Everything
has its ending and so will the Till
man craze in this Stale."
Of course we Reformers will vote
at the Primary and obligate our
seves *o abide the result, as weal
ways do. And iurlher, many of us
expect lo vote for two conservative
candidates, if the Conservatives
will go to the polls with us and
help elect the licker. But for them
to shout "hands off" and fold their
anns, and stand aloof, and refuse
to pledge themselves to abide the
primary, is quite another thing.
And for them,under ibis condition
of affairs, to expect the Reformers
alone lo vote for and elect two
Co n se rva t i ves on their ticket,
would seem somewhat cheeky, to
say the least.
But will the Conservatives vote
at (he Primary? That's what wi.1
want to know.

MR. EDITOR : It is a custom of

if they begin with, "The boy stood

there I take my hickory to them.
Pitts reply to the illtimed reflec
tions of Walpole is an older chest
nut and he, Semphronicus, de
serves 'i flagellation with words,
for its use. But we suppose he bad
nothing better and in his despera
tion to break the force of argu
ment he must resort to ridicule;
but no sensible reader will be led
away by such diatribes. Semphron
icus reminds me4>f another youth,
Icarug, who, when his father had
their wings, secured upon each
with wax charged him to keep up
on a line with him in their flight
from Crete; if he should go too
near the sun the wax would melt
ami.he would be hurled to destruc
tion. Now, Isarus was as egotist
ical as Semphronicus. He thought
lie knew more than Iiis father and
he departed fr un the lines upon
which his father flew, the wax up
on his winga was melted and the
hapless youth met a watery grave
beneath the ?carion sea. Beware,
Semphronicus, of the fate of Ica
rus. Why I believe this presump
tuous youth would essay to drive
the chariot of the sun-would dis
regard the directions of Apollo,
would set the universe on lire and
destroy the whole realm of nature.
Semphronicus in his straits is
calling upon his friend Crouch by
flattering him, to come to his aid.
Now I believe that Mr. Crouch is
too sensiblero be led by flattery
into any such discussion as Sem
phronicus desires, vilification. He
can say as many line things about
his friend as he desires, but 1 am
sure Mr. Crouch is toogood a critic
not to be able to decide who has
the argument and who has not in
the discussion. No posit ion I have
taken on the school system,, has
been successfully assailed. All
persons in their right mind, and
outside the asylum know that all de
nomiuatioual colleges and schools
are built and sustained to build up
their /respective churches. The
very names indicate that thpy are
sects and if they are sects
they are sectarian. The mere
fact that, a minister who '-uigages
in secular pursuits, argues that he
is in it for the money; and he
has not enough faith in his God's
promises to be a teacher of any
We thought when the Advertiser
was patting Semphronicus on the
back that bc would ruin him and
lo! he has caused him to burst
with vanity. Mr. Crouch learned
one thing at school that Semphron
icus failed to learn and thut is
courtesy and we advise Semphron
icus to go back to school and learn
that one thing, for we assure him
that he needs it very much.
One of the main reasons that we
attacked sectarianism in schools
was the editorial in the Cotton
Plant advocating the election of a
Baptist as president of the Rock
Hill school was on account of sec
tarianism in the schools, and we
hope that the Advertiser will pub
lish it and we will be sustained in
our position. We entered into the
discussion that good might evolve
out of it to the school system and
for no other purpose. But unfort
unately some vain young men to
show off their learning, wit and
sarcasm have diverted the discus
sion into other channels, all from
no fault of mine.
if he was as well versed in his
tory as he pretends he would know
that the French revolution broke
more chains of slavery than
any ot her event which ever occur
red upon tho continent and more
impetus to a progressive civiliza
tion. The catholic church was re
sponsible for the dark ages, and
had it not been for Luther or some
man like him. it would still be the
dark ages. In conclusion we
have this to sa)', we are willing to
discuss any live question in ii gen
tlemanly way, but if the Advertiser
is to be the medium of mud 'fling
ing, we would rather wash our
bands of it. We can assure Sem
phronicus we can say just as saucy;
things as he or any of his friends
and if it is his purpose to degrade
the discussion to that level why I
am in for all the summer. So "lay
