We recommend as the Democratic
platform of South Carolina in 1878,
enunciatious of the same principles,
policies, and pledges, as were con
tained in the platform of 1876, which
is as follows, to * wit: "The Demo.
cratic party of South Carolina, in
Convention assembled, announces the
following as its platform of princi
pies: We reiterate onr acceptance
in perfect good faith of the Thir.
teenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth
amendments, to the Federal Consti
tution, accepting and standing upon
them; we turn from the settled and
final past to the great, living and mo.
mentous issues of the present and
We reaffirm the plattorm of princi
pies announced by the National Demo
cratic party assembled at St. Louis,
and in accordance with the declara
tion of that platform and the utterances
and acts of our distinguilied loader,
Wade Hampton, we call upon all of
our fellow citizens irrespective of
race, color or previous condition, to
unite with us in continuihig the work
of reform and redemption inaugu
rated, by the Democratic party of
South Carolina, for it is evident that
substantial and lasting reform is in
possible within the ranks of the Re
publican party of this State. We have
charged and convicted the Republi
can party with arraying race against
race, creating disturbances and fo
menting difficulties; with prostitut
ing the elective franchise, t ampering
with the ballot'.box, and holding un
fair and fraudulent elections; with
having accumulated an enormous
debt; mismanaged the finances, and
injured the credit of the State; with
levying exorbitant taxes, and squan
dering them when collected, thus
wringing trom (he toil and liveli
hood of the honest pcor man of the
State a laige p~ercerntum of his hard
earnings without giving in return
any compensation therefor, and reek
lessly involving in debt a majority of
the countitsa of the State. Its triani
agement of our penal and charitable
institutions was i. shame and a dis
grace. We charge its legislation as
demoralizing, partizan and disgrace..
tnt, and the venality and corruption
which character ized every branch of
the government, executive, legislative
and judicial, as having no parallel in
the history of nations. It created a
multiplicity of unnecessary and use
less offices, complicated in their ByE'.
tern and unnecessarily expensive,
and can never purify itself, give
good and impartial government, or
by -its moral force and character ex
ercise In its full sovereignty the law
of the land. We do not charge this
condition of things, which every pa
triot must deeply deplore, upon the
masses of the party, but upon their
leaders, who made such fatal use of
their confidence and trust, for it is
our firm conviction that all the good
people of tlie State of both .races de..
sire peace and prcsperity. We
therefore call upon all of our fellow
citizens, irrespective of race or past
party affiliation, to join with us in
preserving the good r~ame' of our
State, and in maint aining her dig
* bty and character among the Coin
iionwealths of this great country.
We discountenance all disturbance
of the peace of the S'ate, and den
ounce al1* instigators and promoters
thereof, and earnestly call upon all
of our fellow-cItizens, irrespective of
prty linecs, to exercise forbeara'jce
~6 cultivate good will; and if the
amn of the State is continued
@oftrol, we pledge ourselves
Sthe giersons, rights and
alMi its people, and to
~i~e~t~ *bgto entarmry justice

bheselparamount issues we portlIally
invite the co-operstfoi of everf
Democrat and Republican who is
aarnesi and willing to unite with us
in this peat work,
We riegommend lo the favorable
consideration of the Convention the
following natned resolutions, and rc
coemmend that the same do pass,
namel3: the resolution offered by
Mr. Buist, of Charleston, in relation
to the unity of the Democratic party
"Resolved, That the unity and fn.
tegrity of the Democratic party is of
paramt unt importance to the success
of our cauee and the welfare of our
peole iii the enmuing election, and we
repudiate all fusion or coalition with
the Republican pai ty, and most un
qualifiedly condemn any Independ
ent movement whatever, as inimical
to the people and destructive of their
interests and welfare.
We recommend that the resolution
offered by Mr. Aiken be laid on'the
table, and offer as a substitute, there.
for the following:
"Resolved, That for the developi
ment of our growth as a people, and
of our resources as a State, a bureau
of immigration and agiiculture
should be established, having for its
object the encouragement of and
holding out inducements to, honest
and industr ious emigrants from
other countries to settle among us,
and designed~to stimulate increased
and improved production of what.
ever may be grown upon our soil;
and we recommend to the General
Assembly the speedy enactment of
such laws as will found such a bu
reau upon a permanent and practicud
basis, and provide for its ready and
active operation, to the attainment of
this desirable end."
Resolved, That this Convention
views with the deepest concern the
troubles which have arisen in the up
per portion of the State in the en
forcement of the exercise laws of the
United States, relating to the illicit
distilling of whiskey, and is extremely
solicitious that this subject should be
fairly considered by Congress, and
somo law devised in amendment of or
supplementary to, the present system,
that will remove the existing causes
of irritation, alleviate the present
troubles of our people, insure obedi
once by virtue of' a recognition of the
justice of the laws, and to restore
peace and quiet whore disaontent
now reigns; and, as preliminary to a
change of these laws, we invoke his
Excellency, R. B. Hayes, President of
the United Stases, to extend amnesty
unto all persons in the State who
have violated them.
Resol ved, That this Con vent ion
commends with entire- approbation
the course which has been pursued
in the late session of Congress by our
distinguished State State Senator, the
Hon. M C. Butler, as well as by his
Democratic colleagues, the Hon. D.
Wyatt Aiken and the Hot.. J. H.
Ev ins; in the House of Representa
tives; and the btate now calls upon
them in their respective spheres of
duty to exert their influence and
ability to effect the desired modifica
tion of the exercise laws, and secure
for our people the relief which is so
much needled and sought for.
