KU A I.I, WK HAVK PEACH?
Wc print below the views of the
Charleston World, Columbia Regis
tor, Charleston News und Courier,
and thc Greenville Nevis, upon the
result of the recent election in South
Carolina, and the necessity for the
Democrats of thc State to "get to
gether" before thc election in 1892.
Tho Register Bays :
Our two Charleston contempora
ries came to ns yesterday with sound,
sensible talk about thc situation.
Thc Charleston World elnsses thc
people into three divisions. First,
those who bute tho Governor elect
with a most hearty hatred. Of these
it says :
"Those who hate him, and there is
no doubt but in some quarters he is
tho most intensely hated South
Caroliuiun that ever rose to authority
nod command, will wait breathlessly
foi him to reveal himself* as they
have pictured him, thc worst man in
thc State of South Carolina."
Of tho second class, thc admirers
of tho Governor elect, thc World
says :
"On tho other hand, there is no
doubt but that thousands throughout
this Stato look up to him with n de
votion that is intense, a trust wbioh
is limitless ?md un admiration which
is beyond all bounds, who glory in
his triumph und ask for nothing
else."
Of tho third class, tho World
most wisely takes cognizance in the
following striking words :
"But there is a third class, and it
embraces many more within it than
th? &VCV?iCrn f?bai?vt?/ii. i>-<nilli imnmiw>
and thc members of this class, made up
of people of nil classes, upon whose
action South Carolina d?pends, are
waiting to judge by his own works
tho power for good or evil and the
purposes of this mun, who, driving
, kc n storm cloud through thc Stnte,
lins scattered his opponents, over
turned all opposition and politically
rovolutioni/.cd thc Stato.
"They arc waiting to soo bow
Tillman will use tho power and nu
thority which tho people have placed
in his bands and they will judge him
by his acts."
Our contemporary is entirely right .
The third class docs embrace many
more within it than tho average ob
server would imagine. Thc vet" of
this Stnto possibly stands at 100,000
whites to 128,000 colored. Tn thc re
cent ?lection not over 50,000 of this
white vote was cast. Thnt would
loovc in this third class eorno 60,000
whites who oro prepared to jmlgo Till
man by his acts, r;\Kl who ii he, with
tho Legislature bohiiul, him should
give tho people of tho Stnto on tho
whole a sound, safe and conservative
rule, will sot thoir faces like Hint
against any disturbance botweon tho
pcoplo of tho State ns useless, harm
ful and solfish. But, on tho other
hand, should a wild and wanton ex
orcise of power bo indulged in, cal
culated to glvo tho pooplo no rest
from solfish aud unprincipled agita
tion, wo may ?ot it down that there
is power enough in this third class to
overthrow any administration thoy
may doom hurtful to thoir bcBt in
terests.
Wo sincerely trust that the follow
ing prognostication of tho World
will provo true :
"To tho people bo will bo a faith
ful servant, ?oi ving them best as a
fi rm j just and careful ruler, und South
Carolina will, wc foci sure, bo tho
botter for tho administration of this
man, who is of and from tho pcoplo
of South Carolina, knowing thoir
needs and in thorough sympathy
with thom, and when tho prejudices
natural to this violent upheaval shall
havo died away it will bo admitted
by somo who havo opposed him most
bitterly that Ben Tillman, the man
from Edgefield, will have given to
thc State of South Carolina an ad
ministration that advanced her in
terests, benefited her pcoplo and
gave tho State an impetus which
helped to placo bor in tho van ol
progress."
This is what evory good citi/.en ol
tho Stale should wish and should dc
his best to secure. We do not li vt
to elect this or that man Governoi
or any Bet of men to ellice. Om
wholo purpose should he to BOCllN
good and successful government, iel
it como from whoso hands it may
As Mr. Tillman has said of himsoll
that no mau has yet taken him for 1
fool, wo do not expect to seo any
thing of a foolish policy at his hands
As in the case of all other men, w(
expect to seo a sense of responsibly
sober some of Mr. Tillman's extrenu
views, and that he will do all that ii
him lies to deserve well of all tin
pcoplo of South Carolins, "willum
reference to class, race or previou
condition of servitude." This i
very manifestly his policy, and whoi
ho takes his seat as Chief Magistrat*
ho will lind it conclusively out o
place and beneath the dignity of hi
ellice to indulge in sharp and spic
uetic comments on any portion o
thc people over whom he has heel
called to rule. And so far as th
colored noonie a LO. cauoer.iii^^uau
peet from thc Governor elect, as fa
as in his power lies, n fair and con
siderato courso of conduct. Th
colored pcoplo have mnnifcstl
earned thia nt his bunds in their coi
servative and prudent action in d<
dining, as they have so largely dmr
to meddle with tho "white man
quarrel" through which wo have F
painfully passed. They have show
a willingness to leave it to tho whit?,
to settle thoir own diff?rence
They have taken a tremendous st<
in this action towards inviting tl
confidence of every, right thinkii
man in thc State. Whilst it is ill
deniable that they could have gm
us a great deal of trouble in th
oriticnl juncture, to thoir Instill
credit be it said they have refused
do so. It is ono of the most hop
ful signs of pur day and times, ni
tho Governor elect, ns we take it,
too shrewd a man not to see and a
prec?ate this and reward it by tren
ing these people with ample fairlie
and by protecting them nt the
hearths and homes as essential ju
lice requires ?ind common humani
dictates.
Our other Charleston con tom p
rary, the Netoa and (fourier, in i
article of yesterday, "Now Get T
gc thor,'' expresses so happily 01
own profound convictions of tl
duty of all good citizens in our pr
Bent emergency that wc cannot fe
bear repeating here its eminently j
dioioilS and patriotic counsels, as f<
lows :
"This is the lesson of the olectie

The final appeal was to tho pari

jority, That verdict should

tolligont ami thoughtful white mon
in .Sooth Carolina a? to what is their
first duty now. Tho Democratic
party in tito Stato, the white pcoplo
of the State, must stand togo thor a st
a unit on all political questions if
they would provont a return in wholo
or in large part of tho ovil conditions
from which thoy redooiuod tho Stato
by their united action but a fe\v
years ago. Wo cannot afford to di
vido, for diyision moans injury and
troublo for us all. Wo cannot af
ford to loso tho ground we have
gained; it is wiser to hold it than to
placo ourselves in a position whoro
wo shnll havo to fight to recovor it,
and wo cnn only hold it by standing
togothor and fighting togothor
against the common enemy, instead
of fighting among ourselves ns wo
havo done this year.
"Thc Democratic voters of the
Stato understand all this, as thoy
havo shown by their vote yesterday.
Tho I )o ni oe rat io loaders of both fac
tions ought to understand it and not
on it henceforth. Their duty ia
plain at any rato. They should com
pose all thoir differences at once,
and endeavor to restore porfeot har
mony and unity to tho party. Modo
rato and prudent counsels should
prevail on both sides. Tt is a timi
for concession, not for quarrels. Tin
olection bas determined tho contest
-let tho contest everywhere enc
with tho olection."
NOW KOK TUR WII1TK PL AO.
This Stato has passed safely
through one of the most trying or
deals that ever threatened the lifo o
a commonwealth. Disaster bas bcei
averted; tho unity of tho Democrats
party has been maintained; the whit"
rheo stands solid with its hold unbro
ken. Let us bo thankful, and let u
all humbly pray that ?South Carolin:
may never again be tried and throat
cued as she has this year.
The danger is not gone. It is pub
postponed. There is need of states
manship and courage and manhooi
and patience to remove it and to sc
cur? o'ur permanent safety. Th
white people aro apart. They cam
together at the ballot boxes on TUCK
day in obedience to tho demands o
duty and patriotism, but there i
distrust and anger and bittering
between thom. Tho passions thu
have been aroused' aro yet alive; tb
hatreds that have been created ran
kio on both sides. These tinny
mean continuing danger and unlce
they arc taken away tho danger wi
remain until opportunity develops
to disaster.
The one way to remove thc dai
"ger is "ny concessions which wTll'lTial
our people again one in ht art an
hope and purpose. These mu

On thc other k ind lot it be rome

Governor Brown, in his Macon
speech, referring to hitnsoif, says :
As my own exporionco has sonf,o
boering on this question, in conclu
sion, I must ask tho audience to
pardon tho egotism, which, under
othor oircumstttr,eos, would bo offoti
sivo, while I moko somo allusions to
my own ease. 1
My fathor was a farmer with small
means, and had a wife and ten chil
dren to support, and I was raised
upon a farm and worked hard as a
field hand until I was nineteen years
of age, when, with tho eonsont of
my parents, I loft tho farm in Union
county, Georgia, in Novombor, 1840,
with the view of going to school at
Calhoun Academy in Anderson Dis
trict, South Carolina. My only edu
cation was that I could read and
writo, and I had been in arithmetic
as far as tho rule of three. My oniy
earthly goods wero a comfortable
home-made chango of clothing, made
by my'good mother and sisters, and
a lino yoko of Btcers, which I drove
before mo on my way to Calhoun Aca
demy, about 126 miles, where I en
tered tho school under control of
Mr. Pleasant Jordan.
I sold my steers for eight months'
board, and as I had no money with
which to pay my tuition, Mr. Jordan
was kind enough to give mo credit
for that. Suflico it to say that after
tho omi of eight months I taught an
old field school for threo months to
got a little money to aid mo. Under
tho encouragement of Dr. O. H.
Ilroyles, of Pondlcton, S. C., and of
his father, Major Aaron IJroyles, of
Calhoun, and of the late Judge J.
P. Heed, I returned to school, and
got board and tuition on oredit for
the next two years. In tho mean
time by OIOHO application and hard
study, I had prepared myself for
teaching in an academy, and I went
to Canton and took charge of tho
academy there in 1844, where I had
a line scoool, and made somo $600 or
$000, with which I paid most of my
past indebtedness.
Having obtained the textbooks
while teaching, I studied law by my
self, but never read a day in a law
yer's office, and in September, 1846.
I was admitted to tho bar in Canton
by the Hon. Augustus H. Wright
then presiding, who was very com
plimentary to me on the examination
I then stood. With the aid of thc
lalo Dr. John W. Lewis, so well anti
favorably known to tho people ol
Georgia, I was furnished the mono)
to go to Yale College to the lav*
school, where I graduated in 184G
i WittM mame&-4fl M ton KfaabtttV
Grishatn, in South Carolina, in 1847
Soon after this canto the perioc
when I held my first official position
and thc people delegated to me thoi
first trust.
In 1859 I was elected Stato Sena
tor frorff the counties of Cobb nn<
Cherokee, so that tho period of in;
entrance into public lifo dates bael
forty-one years. In 1852 I was ;
member of tho electoral ticket tba
cast their votes for Piorce and King
lu 1855 T was elected Judgo of th
Superior Court of the Blue Hidg
Circuit, over the Hon. David Erwin
who was then presiding. In 1857
wa? nominated by tho DeinOornti
convention of Georgia,. without an
knowledge on my part that my nam
was being used, for the office of Gov
ornor. I wa? elected in October c
that year. In 1859 I was agai
elected Governor, and in 1801 I wu
elected for a third term, and in 180
I was elected for a fourth term. I
1809 I was appointed Chief Justit:
of thc Supremo Court of the Stat
for a term of twelve years. Aftc
serving a little over two years m
health failed, and I resigned the oflie
and went into the business of rai
roading.
I thought I had permanently rt
tired from politics; butin 1880, whe
thc Hon. John li. Gordon resigne
his position in thc United State
Senate, Governor Colquitt tendere
me tho. appointment to fill the vi
caney. I accepted it and served fe
about three weeks under tho nppoim
mont before Congress ndjournct
I then became a candidnto for r<
election to the office of Senator t
fill thc vnoanoy of between four an
five years which remained unexpire<
The contest was a healed ono, an
tho race an exciting one, but it ri
suited in my favor by over tw<
thirds majority. Again in 1884
was a candidate for the term of si
years in tho Senate. I had no oppi
sition, and was elected by the Gem
ral Assembly with practical un:
nimity; there was but ono dissentin
vote.
My present terni will soon hat
expired, and I have announced n
purpose to retire with the expiratu
of the tomi. I will under no ci
cuntstnnces bo a candidato for n
other office of honor, trust, or prof
Tho few remaining days of my lil
if I have any, I hope to spend in tl
State when? I have been so oft?
honored, and among the people
whom I feel tho greatest gratitud
and lo whom I am under ovcrlastii
obligations.
As a member of tho Stale Sonni
I presided temporarily over th
body. As Chief Justice of t
Stnto I was tho regular presiding]
o?lionr ?ver the judicial dopnrtmont
of tho State, nnd ns Governor, I
preaided ovor the oxecutivo d?part
mont. I never was dofonied in any
race I over had, whero the ouestion
waa to be determined by tho popular
vote.
Aa already stated, at nineteen
yonrs of ago, in November, 1840, il
literate and without means, I loft my
fathor's farm, on foot, to go to an
academy to school. In November,
1867, just seventeen years iator, I
was inaugurated Governor of Geor
gia, hoing thou a little over thirty
six yoars of age, and probably tho
youngest man that had filled the
placo.
If tho example is worth anything j
to tho youth of tue State, my ego
tism will bo pardoned. Tho inten
tion at least is right. What ono boy,
Under the circumstances ment inned,
has accomplished, may be accom
plished by another, and if not to thc
fullest dogroo, thoro may bo many
approximations by boys of pluck,
enorgy and perseverance. Tho way
is open to ovory bright boy to bet
tor his condition. May you all do
tormino to do so.
Wanted Outside.
Wanted-a boy that is manly and just,
Ono that you fool you may honor and
trust,
Who cheerfully shouldors what lifo to
bim brings,
Its sunshine and pleasure or troublosomo
things;
Whoso oyo meets your own with no sha
dow of fear,
No wile on tho faco that is open and
clear;
Straightforward in purpose mud ready to
push
For "a bird in tho hand's worth two in
tho hush;"
Who scornfully refuses a something of
gain.
If it brings to another sorrow or pain:
Willing to hold tho right over dear,
Patient, unheeding tho scoff or tho jeer,
Doing his all, with true heart elate,
Wanted that boy, whatever his state.
Wanted-a girl, not a butterfly gay;
Gentle and swcot, in a womanly way.
No beautiful picture, languid and fair,
That always seemed labeled "please han
dle with caro;"
But ono in whoso heart ls hidden true
worth,
And faithfully follows its mission on
earth.
Hopeful and earnest in helping and giv
ing,
Finds plenty to do in tho life she is living,
Filling it? duties with quiet content,
Whcthor adverso or pleasant, just as
they're sent;
In tho garb of a queen or in homespun
arrayed,
Whatever her stat ion-is needed that |

A COSTLY CONVICTION.-Roscoe
Conkling, writes Eli Perkins, came
into Charles O'Connor's oiliec one
day when ho was a young lawyer in
quito a nervous s.ate.
"You seem to bc very much ex
cited, Mr. Conkling," said Mr.
O'Connor, as Roscoe walked up and
down tho room.
"Yes, I'm provoked," said Mr.
Conkling. "I never had a client dis
satisfied about my fcc before."
"Well, what's the matter?" asked
O'Connor.
"Why, I defended Gibbons for ar
son, you know. Ho was convicted,
but I did hard work for him. I took
him to the superior court and he was
convicted, then oil to the supreme
court, and the supreme court con
firmed the judgment and gave him
ten yoars. I charged him $8,000,
and now Gibbons is grumbling about]
it-says it's too mindi. Now, Mr. |
^'Connor, I ask you, was that too
much ?"
"Well," said O'Connor, very de
liberately, "of course you did a good
deal of work, and $8,000 is not a
very big fcc, but to be frank with
you, Mr. Conkling, iny deliberate
opinion is that ho might have boen
convicted for less mono v."
