The Address or the State Demc
At a meeting of the state central
executive cowtuittee of the democrat
ic party, held in Columbia on Thurs
day, the 6th instant, the following ad
dress to the people of the state was
unanimously adopted and ordered to
be published :
To the People of South Carolina:
The state cenwral executive com
mittee of te democratic party do not
deem it necessary to publish any
lengthy statement of the reasons which
induced them to meet. at this tims.
It is sufficient to, say that events- with
which'the people of the state are pain
-fuly-familiar made it indispensable
that -therorganisation.ofshe democrat
io-pr tia South. Carpina should. be
revived, as the speediest and most
tracticable means of bringing together
our hitler'ascattered forces, and of
concentrating them in the struggle
into wiich we are forced for the main
teaanee of liberty and law in the state.
Thus it has become the duty of the
state coimittee to take such steps as
wiR e'abre the people of the state to
begia the work of party reorganization
aeew-and make it thorough and
rn he oontest in which we are
abiit to engage we must win. De
fiat eii be borne. Success, how
-=avezgsndt be.expected to erown our
Aabors nless there be- absolute unity
in the democratic party, together with
such. discijline as will insure the
promptand tfiient execution of its
*JpAiey'when deelared. From our ad
-versaries must we learn, at last, the
lesson of organization and activity.
When the agencies on which society
relies for ihe conservation of its varied
interests menace those interests with
destrmetion, and threaten a whole peo
ple with rain, politics are no longer a
Juatter of seatimeut, in which the citi
zen-is free 'o engage or not, according
to his taste. Upon the management
of our political affairs depends the se
eurity of property, as well as the safe
ty of person. By political movements
aloe- ean the purification of the state
government be accomplished. Only
through political instrumentalities can
honesty, fidelity, capability regain a
prepbnderating influence in the coun
ils of the state. To poltics, -taen,
fur their own salvation, must the peo
ple of South Carolina now address
-theaiselves with the vigor, the persis
- teev and the systematic endeavor
- whi~h mark their conduct in business
ol~q~ d ietbi-wise~ to declare
e~iy befors the party .which~ shall
f eet toQit is ready for .both de
-brao and acttoin ' The officers
m ,ust-et be hosen-til the rnk and
die of the political .arniy shall have
heen musered in and trained. .There
=sisMl be, in fine, such organization
iachVWariftownship -and county,
That when the sta-te convention shall
assemble, it shall represent, by its del
egates, the known wishes, opinions
and purposes of the organized demo,
c racy of the state. Then will its voice
be the voice of the people ; its deter
nation theirs; its fight their battle
.o such organization, searphing and
~r-reacbing, should, the people of the
state without delay address themselves.
Without it the state cannot be saved !
The state convention, when it shall
'-'- assemble, will determine authorita
- - tively the policy of the party; and by
the decision of that convention shall
we all be bound. As, however, the
demiocratic party, as such, has had no
active existence in South Carolina for
some years, the state committee desire
-- to say emphatically that, in recomn
miending? its instant and comiprehen
sive organization, their sole purpose
is to obtain an honest and economical
~overnment in South Carolina, which
shafl maintain, without abridgement
or change, the public rights and liber
-ties,of the whole people, and guaran
- tee to all classes of citizens the bless
* idgs of freedom, justice and peace.
And in this erisis in the constitutional
life of the state, when civilization it
sel(is in peril, we look for and confi
dently expect to receive .the sympathy
and aid, of every citizen whose aims
* and desires are like unto our own..
In common with their fellow-citizens
the state democratic committee have
watched, with anxious solicitude and
growing confidence, the course of the
present governor of the state. They
recognize and appreciate the value of
what tie has done in pi-omoting reform
and retrenchment during the past year.
They appland his wise and patriotie~
-conduct in exerting his whole officeial
power and personal influence for the
undoing of the in-famous judicial elec
tion. And they declare their belief
that-the democracy of the state, rising
above party, as he has done, will give
an unfaltering support to his efforts, as
governor, for the redress of wrongs, for
the reduction of taxation, to obtain a
inst administration of the law, and to
inake the state government a faithf'ul
guardian of the public and private in
terests of the people.
'Therefore, the State executive comn
nbttee earnestly advise the people of the
state to reorganize thoroughly the demo
eratic party, in preparation for the State
democratic convention, which will meet
at a time and place to be hereafter desig
Dated by this committee. The follow

In conclusion, the State commiutee
earnestly say to their fellow-citizens
that we are not as those who are with
out hope. The magnitude of the task
before us can hardly be over-rated.
Every step is beset with difficulty, if not
danger. But, knowing this people, the
committee are confident that the future
can be wade as bright as the present is
dark. This is the accepted time! By
organization, labor, patience, boldness
and liberality can peace and plenty and
political security be restored to the

Speenlation and Gambling..
We clip the following from the New
In an action before our courts to
recover from Jay Gould the. value of
a contract made by him as a speeulator
in -Wall street, his counsel Mr.-Shear
man, has entered- an extraordiBary
plea which is worthy of consideration
from .everal points of view. -Mr.
Shearman takes the*ground that Mr.
Gould in dealing in "puts" and"calls"
is-simply gambling, and that there
fore when he loses he is not to be
compelled to pay. his contracts. In
other words, Mr. Gould appears in the
coar& through his lawyers and prac
tically swears hat his business 'is
nothing more nor less than bettiot
and., that, he-.i,*entitled to the same
release from apy obligation it involves
that he would receive if he were the
keeper of a faro bank~ or a lottery, or
if he had made a wager on the result
of an election.
We have d4ways contended that,
morally, this business of "puts" and
"calls" on Wall street was gambling.
We believe that if the courts were to
decide thequestion from a strictly equi
table-point O[ 'view they would so rule.
If Mr. Gould's defence is sound, then
what is Wall street but a vast gam
bling concern ? Our "business pros
perity," our "immense stock values,"
are no more than the passing gamn
ber's chips over the faro board. For
the last year Wall street has been
as much of a gambling den as Mr.
Morrissey's saloon at Saratoga. The
principal stocks bought and sold have
been gambling stocks. Jay Gould,
the principal operator. swears to that
fact. He swears that while he was
doing business in .the eyes of the
world he was gambling in his own
eyes; that while he was making "con
tracts'' for stocks and gold be did not
mean to keep them unless it was to
his own benefit. The shamelessness
and frankness with which Mr. Gould
makes this defence would be looked
upon as an -astounding revelation iis
any age but the one in which we live
and from any man bat Mr. Gould
himself. There really seems to be no
end to the infamy of which this man
is capable in prosecuting his designs
upon the credit of the c.ommunty.
If the Court should accept his plea
and decide that this kind of Wall
street operation falls within the legal
definition of gambling quite a new
phase will be put upon this species
of business. It would then be tile
dn.y of the District Attorney to get
the whole street indicted for gambling
and proceed to enforce tile penalties..
There would -be no more excuse for not
breaing it up than-for not interfering
with the gambling dens of theo ity.
it may be difficult to draw the line
bet ween legitimate mnercan tile speeula
tionand gambling. We must allow a
considerable degree of latitude to the
operations of speculators; we must
not hamper their energy to such ani
extent as to take away the stimulus to
exertion. It is depiorable that the
chief stimulus to work is the desire
for wealth. Such, however, is a fact
which we must accept. Without this
desire to hoard man would never have
acquired the present state of civiliza
tion. It is to be hoped that other
motives of a higher order may in the
future be made more prominent in
centives to work, and that this result
will follow the progressive develop
ment of man's moral nature. But
we are getting into a different chan
nel. That the operations of Jay Gould
above alluded to amount to gambling
thereof. we have little doubt. But
whether the fictitious sale or a con
tract for a fictitious future delivery of
any commodity comes within the pale
of legitimate speculation is a subject
which wight be profitably considered
even in a latitude lower than New
