There is a rumor Moating about the
State that Senator Tillman is the main
inlluenee which inspires lion. Prank H.
Gary's candidacy for Gubernatorial hon
ors. Whether there is any foundation
for the rumor wc do not know, and hope
it is not true. We do know that Senator
Tillman is very friendly to the Gary
family and he has manifested that. friend
ship in many ways. Ho made tho mis
take of his political life whim ho under
took to save John Clary Kvans from de
feat. That was not his judgment, hut he
permitted his name to be allixcd to the
circular, entirely from a spirit of friend
liness to the Gary family. Wc doubt ex
ceedingly if there is a member of that
family who would have been heard from
at all, as far as high political honors arc
concerned, had it not been for Tillman,
lie is their polit ieal.fathor, and through
him nearly the entire connections, neal
and remote, have been, and are now till
ing prominent positions, both of lionel
ami emoluments. We think it high linn
and very proper, after such a long am'
careful training that Senator Tillman turi!
his protogoa loose, and let thom taki
their chances without his aid. If Col
Cary, a most excellent gentleman, wan tl

SOME HOPE THAT WE ARE TO IE RIO OF
IT AT LAST-TWO LETTERS.
ABUSES Of THTSYSTEM REALIZED
8y Soiialoi Tinnum ??iu E?i?ur Parks-Tho
Peop'o will Consider the Matter.
Al last it appears that thc people
ot" South Carolina are to be spared
tho nnisanoo of county to county
campaign meetings. Senator Till
man has come out and Raid that it
would be a good idea to try a change.
From time to time such a change has
been urged and the reasons for sueh
chango have been given. Willi an
experience covering more campaign
meetings than even Senator Tillman
attended, it was slated that the peo
ple generally were sick, tired and
disgusted with the constant ha
rangues at the campaign meeting?.
Last'yoar there was a sentiment in
favor of one meeting in each of thc
Congressional districts, but the poli
ticians and leaders were afraid to
make the move, fearing they would
be understood as being unwilling to
go before the people.
Senator Tillman has ?ow paved
tho way ; ho will not insist upon the
county to county campaign.
Ho suggests that each candidate
can arrange his own meetings or that
the counties can invite those they
want to speak. This will keep such
of the oflieers as want to speak in
touch with tho people.
The whole matter is set forth in
the two letters that follow. The
first is from lid i tor Parks, of the
Orangeburg Patriot :

lemoernlio Party in this State a?
nay seem desirable for the proper i
conduct of the coming Stale cam?
The object of this communication '
s to ask your opinion as to the pro- ?
iHoty and desirability of amending I
Vrlicle II of the Constitution of the I
)cmocratio Party of this Stale,
vhioh reads as follows :
"Article II : Mefore the election in
SOC?, and each election thereafter, '
ho State Democratic ICxeontivc
'ommittco shall issuo rt cnll to all
andidatos for State oflioos to address I
he people of the different counties ]

The above article is mandatory, i
t requires tho State Democratic l
'.vocative COminitlOO I . formulate
he schedule for tho w dote Stale i
.anipnign without giving the county
executive committees of tho various
counties any voice in tho arrange
ment of tho time ami placo of meet
ing for their respective counties.
Quito a numbor of people-anil with
apparent good reason-think that
this article of tho party constitution
should be either entirely abrogated
or at least so amended as to give the
individual counties a voice in making
the schedule of tho meetings. Tho
most potent reasons adduced in be
half of such change or amendment in
thc constitution of our party aro
First. Tho executive committees
of the Boveral counties, knowing the
desire and the need of the people
in their respective counties belter
than is possible for the State Democra
tic executive committee to know,
should have tho privilege of fixing a
time and a place for the State cam
paign meetings of their respective
Second. Many of the meetings in
the last two campaigns were mere
farces. They were forced upon
communities at inopportune times
ami at places where no meetings were
desired. They should be avoided
in the future.
Third. It is impossible to run a
campaign of education on the old
plan. When all candidates are re
quired to attend thc meeting at a
certain timo and place the great
number present to address the vot
ers precludes thc idea of intelligent
discussion of grave public, questions
in the brief space of five, ten or fif
teen minutes allowed each speaker
Fourth. The newspaper report? ol
the various meetings are virtually
the same day after day, and are usu
ally but a mere stereotyped skelctoi
of a skeleton argument, and in nc
case sufficiently elaborate to ox prest
clearly the views of thc speaker 01
to enlighten the hearer. Therefore
if the meetings arc to be educational
the will and the convenience of tin
people must be consulted in appoint
ing the campaign meetings, so tba
larger audiences will be attractci
and longer time given to speakers.
Fifth. Thc proposed change in th>
constitution would give each nandi
date the greatest possible latitud
and liberty in conducting his owi
campaign and would give the rei
pective counties tho right to r?gul?t
and direct their own political aj:
pointmentN and to invite whomsc
ever they desired to be presen
whenever and wherever the peopl
wished to hear them.
Sixth. Undor the old plan a meei
ing is scheduled for each count;
whether desired or not, and cac
candidate must follow the proeossio
throughout tho State regardless <
expense or convenience. The grei
expense of making the canvass t
the State will eventually shut out
poor man from running for a Sta'
office, however worthy and comp
tent he may be. This is one of tl
strongest arguments for a change.
Seventh. It is very desirable th:
these matters should be brought I
the attention of the people for fi
and free discussion before tho M:
Convention. The foregoing are tl
principal reasons, crudely state
why a chango in thc constitution a

In reply to this Senator Tilln
wrote as follows :
WASHINGTON, 1). C., March
1900.-J. T. Parks, Orangoburg,
D.-Dear Sir: I have your letter
March 17 and the importance of
natter presented therein must be
parent to every one. It isaporpl
ng quest ion and has been a subj
if serious thought with mo for a h
Limo, because I have foreseen t
the primary system was being ic
mlized by the abuses to which it
lieen subjected. Political eon di ti
in our State forced tho joint dis?
dons before the people of the iss
liecauso the newspapers were so
fair and partisan ; and any ahn
[ion of tho system now in vc
would, in all probability, result
tho rotura to tho old conditions,
when it was in tho power of two or
thrco leading newspapers to make
and unmake mon, and to largely con
trol our Stato politics. Tho neces
sity of freedom of speech and the
I rcBcntation by the candidates of
their views, directly to the voters,
without having them tinged 01 dis
torted or suppressed by different
newspapers, will make tho people
unwilling to givo up tho present
plan unless "something better" can
ho substituted for it. You have
stated the defects in thc present sys
tem none too strongly, and there
arc others which occur to me, which
you have not mentioned.
For instance, it was never con
ceived possible that a man would
oiler as a candidate for high position
simply because of vanity or 1. is being
a crank, still less that any one would
enter such a race with no hopes of
being elected, hut simply with the
view of defeating another man.
There can ho no limitation as to the
number of persons who shall run for
any ofl?ce if they comply with the
prerequisites. The joint discussion
was intended to give the people an
opportunity of hearing both sides
and ol allowing the candidates to
present their views directly to tho
voters. The great mistake that has
been made was thc attempt to divide
thc time pro rata, or apportion it out
among all the candidates.
Thus, as you havo said, there was
no chance for a candidate to make a
speech or do himself any '.redit, and
thc people were disgusted to that
extent that they refused to turn out
Lo the meetings. I canvassed thc
Slate three times and there was
never any limitations on any speaker,

nen who wero not wanted, and if
ihould occur, which is hardly poss

justly treated, he could (hen mai
irrangements for a separate meetin
,o which his opponent could be ii
rited. It is no light thing to canva
ho entire State and attend mectilij
n forty counties ; find it entails
icavy expense besides. Many of 01
K'ople do not even take their conn
lepers, and since the patent outsid
nive come in vogue, with a fe
ircditablo exceptions, the conn
lewspapors have deteriorated vei
ensibly from what they were liftei
'ears ago. Competition has causi
hem to reduce * their subscripts
md whilo the subscribers get
nindi as they pay for, it is nevertl
eSM evident that the newspapers
int furnish as much and as go
lews as they used to.
In regard to the State com mitt
ixing tho dates for the mcotings
he campaign, it has been consider
leccssary in order to prevent a ole
n counties, and always arrange t
ncetings in rotation so that in
(Ivon week certain contiguous toi
ory might bc covered. If the pap
. f tho State could be induced to g
air, full and unbiased reports
pooches, and honest and truth
latomcnts as to the numbers ii
lappenings at thc meetings, tho <
celions which you have ur?,
gainst tho present system wo
eave hardly any reason for its e
inuance, and by this I do not m<
he daily papers alone, for they
ead to n very limited extent, exe
u the towns, and the masses of
'oters read only weeklies. It sci
hat arrangements could bo make
lave speeches giving on the pat
lutsido just as easily as to have 1
itorics and trash which now np|i
After all I do not know that wo
need to be worried much about tho
matter. Any man who cnn make
such a speech as the people want to
hear and give them instruction or
amuso them, will always be ablo to
obtain an audience ; and if they do
not want a man to talk any longer
they will let him know it. Then by
reversing thc order of speaking and
alternating days every mun will have
a fair chance. If the crowd have
come to hear any special man thoy
will make it known, and thc others
will voluntarily hurry through and
get out of thc way.
Whatever is done wo should cling
to the freedom of discussion and
joint debate, and the primary system
as thc very essence of Demoornoy.
Rather than give these up it would
be better to confine the speeches to
candidates for Governor Alone. The
other State House officers do not
outline policies, but are largely ad
ministrative officers, while the Gov
ernor not only influences legislation,
but by thc usc of thc appointing
power and veto controls public af
fairs, if bc should bo a man of any
force and ability. It may be worth
while to try the plan of having no
meetings under the auspices of the
State committee, but turn all tho
candidates loose and let them arrange
their own meetings, or attend such
as the county committees arrange and
the people who get up picnics in
vile them to, but until thc news
papers change their policy of recent
years, and also bc more industrious
in furnishing the voter with read
able and fair and reliable reports of
what is being said and done by tho
candidates, the system of joint dis
cussion in one form or another will
bo demanded by the people and no
candidate can safely neglect it. Ono
jf Jefferson's maxims was "teach the
people and trust thc people," and
under the existing conditions in our
Stute there is no certain way to have
this done except through the medium
af public debate.
