UK WILL SUPPORT THK UKO ULAH
COLUMBIA, S. C., October 28, ?90.
COL. J. L. M. IBBY-fcty Dear Sir :
Wbon I wrote a personal noto to
you recently my intention was to
romain silent until I could givo my
viows to you moro fully than was
; thon done; but since my return homo
1 so many friends havo asked of mo
I an oxprossion of opinion on tho con
? dition of politionl affairs that I gavo
a brief statemont to tho press a fow
t day ?bice. Tbl?, perhaps, renders
; it necessary for mo to addross you
; again; but as various communica
. tions and invitations to spoak at pub
I Ho mootings havo rcaohea me, I tako
i this method of making my views
i known to those who havo done mo
i tho honor to ask for thom.
Another reason that induces mo to
, tako this course is tho faot that my
I position regarding political matters
. nero and my conduct havo boon
- grossly misrepresented in somo quar
? tors, and I dosiro that my follow
? citi/ens may bo fully informed as to
\ both, so that they may judge aright.
When my old constituents of this
! county, who had so ofton trusted and
, honored mo in tho pst, invited mo
f to address them in June last, I came,
. having but ono object in view, and
i that was to appeal to our people for
, harmony, for conciliation, for unity
\ of action. I expressly declaimed
, any intontion of interfering in any
- way with tho canvass for Oovornor,
and I neither advocated any candi
I dato nor opposed any. I said that
. tho people wcro the Bole and proper
ju Iges m the selection of their ofli
tials, and that from their verdict
there should bo no appeal. In ordor
that there might be a full and free
expression of their wishes as to tho
r selection of candidates, I urged that
t a primary should he held, and had
t this plan been adopted the present
3 deplorable condition of affairs would
. not havo oxistcd. Other counsels
. prevailed, and the result is a divided
j party and a bitter''contest between
Dcmocrajtsy all,'of,$Jwhom should bo
. united to maintain the supremacy of
j our party And td promote thc welfare
j of our State
No one deplores tho unhappy dis
\ sonsions in our party moro than
. myself, and I would willingly make
, any sacrifice to heal thom wore it in
my power to do so. Hut thc only
I remedv M?afc ? ?'?" -ha. appiivdi must
eoy?c from thc conservatism and thc
J n#atriotisni of the people themselves,
and we can only hopo that by tho
(i exercise of those virtuos the dangers
r threatening u 1 may be averted.
I, It was tho conviction of my ina
0 bility to reform our broken ranks
lt now that induced mc to declino to
I, take part in any public discussion on
II the hustings. My judgment is clear
fl that public meetings at this juncture
n would be unwise; that they would
[t only tend to widen thc existing
8 breach in our party, and perhaps to
it make in irreconcilable. Wc want no
?. further excitement; we have had
already too much of that, and of a
j. pernicious character; thc issues in
1 vol veil aro fully understood by thy
'n people, who are entirely competent
* to decide them.
H Hut whilst 1 shall not speak again
t in this canvass, I shall support the
ticket nominated by tho Convention
in September; but in doing this 1 by
no means endorse thc grave charges
which have been mada against the
Democratic, party of the State.
Honesty and integrity have marked
every administration which has gov
erned thc State since 1870, and we
shall indeed be fortunate if our ofli
cials in thu future shall bo as able,
j. as patriotic and as honest ns they
have been in the last fourteen years.
H I am impelled to support thc Sop
0 tomber ticket because it was nomi'
1 natcd?*by the Democratic Conven
. tion, and because tho other ticket
lacks that endorsement. I regret
h deeply" that this latter ticket has
.been brought out, though I have tho
*? greatest respect for tho gentlemen
composing it, and I do not, for one
? moment, question tho motives of
' those who nominated it. For the
Q gallant and distinguished gentleman
t who is at its head I on tor tain the
highest possible regard and esteem,
i I cannot forget his eminent services
to the State, in peace and in war.
i To him wo were largely indebted for
thc success which crowned our
t efforts in 1870, and there is no oflioo
in tho gift of thc State for which I
would not earnestly and cordially
support him were he endorsed by tho
recognized authority of the Demo
cratic party. All denunciation of
bim and of those whom he repre
sents is, in my opinion, unworthy of
j, those who indulge in it, and it will
only serve to prolong and embitter
4 the unfortunate strife which now
divides our party. No one who
" knows Col. Haskell can doubt his
( sincerity, bis conscientiousness or his
Democracy. I certainly do not; and
while I think that ho has made a
j mistake in londiug his name and his
^ inllnonce to tho movement inaugu
rated by bis friends, I shall not
denounce thc man who was my com
rade in the war, who was ono of thc
j ablest and bravest officers in my com
mand, and who was my trusted friend
. and adviser in '70.
I do not yoi,turo to oiler advice
\ to my fcllow-citi/eiiH, for my last
honest effort to do so fell unheeded;
but J do appeal to them, by thc glo
' rions moinorios of '70, by all our
1 hopes for tho enduring prosperity of
\ thc State, to avoid all semblance of
violence in tho conduct of thc elec
tion. Any act of that sort would
not only tarnish tho fair fame of the
State, but it would place in thc hands
' of our political opponents tho most
j powerful weapon to be used against
us, and it would furnish tho strong,
i^st argument for the enactment of
the odious Fedora! election bill now
, pending beforo Congress.
Lot every man who holds the honor
of our State dear constitute himself
t a special guardian of tho ponce, and
i lot us provo to those who trad nco us
, that whatever differences h?'ay oxist]
, in our party wo can voltio mom ntl
i tho ballot-box, without resorting to I
intimidation, Jo fraud or to violence/
Then wo may confidently cherish timi
hope that when thc bitterness eugen- j
dorcd by tho. present unhappy strifo
has dioa out wo shali soo again a
united party and a prosperous people

Capt. It. R. Tillman Speaks ft Gaff
A UONSKKVATIVK ADDRESS.
GAKFNKY CITY, October 24.-Al
though thc notice wa?? short Mince
Capt. Tillman accepted tho invita
tion to speak hero, ho was greeted by
a large crowd of people Over ono
thousand people listened earnestly to
this specoh, which was dolivorcd in a
calm, dispassionate manner.
Aftor short introductory remarks,
he stated that he stood boforo thom
Mot as an aspirant for Governor, but
ns tho nominee of tho Democratic
party of South Carolina for Gover
nor, roady to forgivo and forgot all
tho bitterness of tho campaign. Ile
complimented tho press, which had
fought him so bitterly, for now so
patriotically supporting the nominees
of tho Domooratic party.
Alluding to national politics, ho
said that Congress-tho government
-was controlled by tho money
power, monopolists, manufactories,
banks, and the MoKinloy bill, which
would rob tho people of millions,
had just passed as a permanent mea
sure. It was of tho utmost impor
tance to elect every Congressman'
from South Carolina. Ono vote
might turn tho sonlo in Congress.
The Foroe bill, giving control of
elections to United States officers,
with tho army to back them, would
put tho government under control
of tho Republicans for twenty-five
Alluding to State politics, bo said :
I am not the candidato of thu Al
liance, but they have a right to sup
port whom they please; I am willing
to give tho negro all of his rights
and protection under tho law, but I
advocate good government, white
supremacy and civilization. No
good Democrat in South Dardina
will over submit to negro g<v. eminent
Haskell and his littlo party aro ap
pealing to the negro, and call them
selves" "Straightouts." They want
"oar corn," but haive 4n&L "Wp
*Vno' have ^ Yvitn ft white crust
marr;*.-. . *>\c\.??l" and they ask you
to swallow it.
Running Haskell's record on thc
Supremo bench, he said bc tried to
fix millions of thc Green fraudulent
bonds on tho State, against tho de
cimon of the othor judges and thc
Chamberlain was now in the State,
and had presented theso saino cou
pons in payment of taxes.
Who knows what understanding
may exist now to manipulate these
bonds so ns to fix them on tho State,
and possibly to secure a corruption
fund to buy negro leaders and carry
Judge Haskell was an extreme
Democrat in 1870, but now ho ap
peals to tho negro, and asks him to
elect him. If thc pledges of 1870
have not been carried out, where has
he been all this time, that he has not
raised his voice to protect tho nc
Ho went from the Supremo Court
into tho employment of the railroad
monopoly, and beonuso I have al
luded to his record, and because I
downed him when ho attacked and
insulted mo in Columbia, ho now
hatea mc so that ho wants to scuttle
and sink thc ship, and ruin UH all,
rather than I should be Governor, al
though an overwhelming majority of
Dem?crata havo nominated me.
The devil has taken bim up on a
mountain and shown him this large
negro vote, and told him if he could
get that he could control South Ca
rolina, and bo backed, if necessary,
by the United States troop?.
They call him such a high man-I
am not afraid to compare records
with bim. They have burned the
wooda and sifted the ashes, but no
man baa dared to assail my record.
Other tilings are actuating Has
kell. He is president of a bank, and
it is said that the banka, the rail
roads, t'. c monopolies, the money
power, are opposed to Tillman. Let
na judge Haskell by his own words
where ho denounced the Indepen
den ts as "deserters and traitors.
A Voice-"I reckon bo forgot
No, he baa not, but now he wants
to nae thc negro. I was around nore
in 1870, and did ?orno work myself,
but I don't want to appeal to feeling
and passion. I only want to speak
for good government, white civiliza
tion and white supremacy.
If you don't do your duty, send
tho word along the line, bring out
your whole voto up hore, you may
wake up on November 4, and lind
the election lost. The crazy, reckless
men following Haskell may get
enough negro votes to carry it.
Thuro is great danger of over
confidence. There is another dan
ger; who would have thought that a
Domooratic Govornorof South ('aro
lina could enter into a conspiracy to
defeat bis party. A month before
tho law required it, ho had appointed
all the election commissioners, and
every ono of them anti-Tillman.
Some of them aro good men, and
will do their duty, but some of them
have sworn to elect Uaskoll, if they
can do so.
"God helps those who help them-'
selves." AH you love your lives,
liberty and your civilization, HOO that
there is a fair vote and count. Tbero
?H no uso to intimidate the negro;
many of thom will vote for mc. Soe
that no bogus votcN aro cast and a
fair count in made on tho 4th. I

clouted, I will be Governor, or there
will bo no Governor of South Caro

It was loamed Yesterday afternoon
that Capt. B. II. Tillman nad missed

and would spend the OYCning at the

to the hotel to obtain, if possible, an

"How many votes will you poll at
tho coming election ?" asked tho re
"Thoro aro from eighty-fivo to
ninety thousand whito votes regis
tered in tho Stato, and I will poll
from 90 to 95 per cent of thom."

Committee, tho number of negroes
now legally registered is not more
than 00,000. All of these will not

"In every county whero there is
any doubt whatever os to tho loyalty
or fairness of tho commissioners and

fraudulent ballots at the opening of
tho polls, and should watch thc wnolo
election to tho cud of tho count."
"In your interview, published in
the Record some time since, you aro
reported as having threatened blood
shed; what did you moan by that?"
"I made no throats. I only ox
pressed an opinion that there would
io bloodshed should tho Independ

polls, or should tho managers try to
count us out. There is no opposi

our people too well not to lear blood
