Stand by the Democracy.
There is general approval of the
position taken by Senator Irby in
favor of sticking to the Democrat
ic party. The idea, in fact, is not
Senator Irby's. It is the sentiment
of the great body of Demcratic vo
ters in South Carolina. We can
not alford to experiment with a
new organization. Sucha course
would lead to demoralization, con
fusion, disruption-all tending to
the advantage of tho common ene
Stand by the party that has al
ways stood by the South.
Senator Irby is only one among
many thousands of Reformers who
aro determined to stand by the
Democratic party.-II a m p ton
Another most lovely scheme
and which pr-.n ed a howling suc:
ces3 in 1892-is that of Senator
Tillman's to send delegates to the
National Democratic Convention,
which convention it is admitted by
all represents no democratic prin
ciple, and if they fail to declare for
the money of the constitution, and
should fail further to nominate a
f: 'a silver man, then bolt and join
the free silver party that is organ
ized by Lombard ?nd Wall Stiee'..
A plan of that kjmd would end in
the everlasting defeat of all le
form movements ol any kind and
character. Is Senator Tillman igno
rant of the fact that the gold stand
ard leaders in both th? Democratic
and Republican parties are now
prepared io adopt an unlimited,
lS-to-1, free coin*:, i lal form, and
that they will place a free silver
candidato on it, for the express
sind only purpose of ker ping the
.discontented people out of the
People's party? And by so doing
make the succe.-.-.of the gold stan
dard Republican,BUre? That will
le the outcome cf .Mr. 't illman's
} rilliant sch'.mej whether ho in
tends it or not.-Cotton Plant.
The News a KI Courier's caption
writer, who by L.he way, has a good
bead, calls Senator lin Tillman
/.tis to be hoped, however, that
3ec will wisely conclude not tc
'bolt" for some yet to come. We
2an't afford to Jcs*- him from the
democratic ranks ncr can we se
clear to bolt with "Ben Bolt" jus
yet awhile.-Clinton Gazette.
The hard horse sense and inlelli
genoe of South Carolina can no
follow Senator Tillman in his wil
goose chase af ter the free coinag
of silver at the 16 to 1 ratio. Tha
there are grave abuses in our linar
cial system is only too apparent t
every one, but to follow Docto
Tillman absolutely would be sim
ply flopping from the frying pa:
into the fire.
But the Senator has cast the di

pared to cross the Rubicon.-Chai

Mr. Tillman in his letter to thc
Register takes a position thorough
ly inconsistent and untenable. He
wishes; to be sent as a democrat tc
a democratic convention with the
avowed purpose of bolting that con
vention if its action does not please
hint. Ile arrogates to himself the
light to define what national de
mocracy means and whut consti
tutes a democrat. He proposes to
do exactly what the Haskel lites did
when 'hey bolted the State conven
tion in 1890, and after denouncing
that faotion as bitterly aud ns per
sistently as he did, it comes with
poor grace for him to advocate
bolting the national convention,
and it will be hard to convince the
people of South Carolina that his
action is honest and that ambition
to receive tho nomination for the
presidency on the Silver ticket is
not the ruling motive.-Sparian
To show our intalligeut people
that they can hope for nothing
from I li 3 silveriies or populists, we
have only to refer to the wrangling
and strife now going on among
those would-be bolters m our own
State. Ser-ator Tillman advises
remaining in Lhe democratic party,
but bolting unless a free silver
platform is adopted. Let South
Cai olin f.. send a delegation to Chi
cago under any such instructions,
and the only way they will ever en
ter tho convention hall would be
to mob the sergeant-at-arms or
climb down the chimney. * *
* * We must go into the next
democratic convention as dsmo
crats, and send free and uninstruct
ed delegates. Our people are for
free silver, and we believe that a
majority of country is with us. But
if those in favor of bi-metalism
divide and split up into warring
factions, of course the gold bugs
will take advantage of the situation
to control matters ic their own in
terest. But of one thing we do feel
assured: If the county cannot se
cure relief through the democratic
party, then we had as well hang
our harpon a willow troe, sing the
Long Mecer Doxology, and dismiss
the congregation. * " -J* . ? *
Tho word "Democrat" in the
South means more than any polit
ical movement. It means the ruie
ol'thc white majority-the politi
cal supremacy of the Anglo-Saxon
over the African. When tho whites
divide, it simply gives into the
hands of the colored voter the bal
ance of power. It disturbs cmr la
bor system, and degrades the poor
white man to the political level of
the black man. If any class of
people in our State are \ tally in
terested in upholding th?- demo
cratic party, it is the poor and un
educated rvhite voter. Financially,
he is no batter off than the negro,
but the power of his ballot, guar
an Leed b}' our democratic party,
places the while mau far above the
African. But disband the demo
cratic party and let there be a free
tor-all raes, and you will see the
negro com3 to the surface agai:i,
?'ind his vo e will be as much sought
after as tho poor white man's vote.
"If we fail to get thc- National Con
ventionto give us a platform ol' the
character outlined and a loyal candi
date on it we should withdraw."-Till
man in Register.
This is very strange, inconsistent
counsel for a man calling himself
a Democrat. After calling a Stale
Convention, electing a delegation
and going into the National Demo
cratic convention, he would bolt
that body, uu!f ss he, the sole judgM,
should be pleased with its actiori ;
and, as he says further on, unless
so and so can be dono, "then we
take the urinciples and seok new
allies and a new uame."

The Laurensville Horrid, nuder

among the foremost, if not the first
newspaper in the State to embrace
Mr. Tillman's Reform measure'.
How long and how faithfully it
maintained that advocacy, the
readers of this journal well know.
But unies3 he recedes from the po
sition he now holds, regarding his
threatened bolt, we shall be reluc
