"The Conciliation Plan."
Thero is no paper in the Stato that
we have a higher regard for than the
Greenvillo Daily News, nor is there
any community of citizens in tho Stato
in whoso patriotism wo have more
confidenco than in thoso Demo
crats in Greenville who aro see
onding the effirts of tho News to
bring about a "roconciliation" between
the white and colored voters of the
State. But gentlemen wo doubt your
judgment. Was it not upon this very
lino of policy proposed by you that
tho "Reform" movement of 1870 was3
inaugurated? Then we proposed to
"conciliate"-divido offices with the
negroes. What was the result? Wo
remember very distinctly that our
"Reform" candidate for Governor in
sisted that the Domocrats of this
County should give somo Iadical ne
gro a placo on our ticket. This we
wi.sely refused to do. But in our
sister county of Anderson, his wishes
wero acceded t09, and a negro was put
on the ticket for tho Legislature. Is
it necessary for us to remind our
Greenvillo friends of the result of that
campaign? We were over'whelmingly
defented in the State and our friends
in Anderson lost everything. Dis,
gusted Democrats remained at home;
disaffected D~emocrats united with the
.Republicans under the convenient
disguise of "Independents," and swept
overything before them. John .R.
Cochran became the political dictator
of the coun ty, went to the lower ilouse
of the Legislature, and from that
Ilouso to the Senate. The broach
thus caused in the Democratio ranks
was not healed until 1876, when the
D)emocrats decided to abandon policy
and fight for principle. Then it was
that victory perlched upon our banner,
and so long as we make princilo the
corner stono of our political structure,
we need not fear' its flight. But our
esteemed cen temporary presents the
following fact for our considera
"From a table published in the Ab,
bevillo Press and Ban nor it appears
that only eight counties of the thirty
three in this State have a majority of
whito voters. Of the remaining twen,
ty-fivo there are only seven in which
there is less than 1,000 majority of
colored voters. Each of the remain
ing seventeen has a colored majority
of over 1,000, some of them reaching
6,000 and 8,000."
Did not tho same fact exist in 1 876
78 and 80 when the D)emocrats swoept
everything before them? But instead
of this being an argument in favor of ad
opting a f usion (convenien tly called "roe
conciliation") policy, it is to our mind
the very strongest reason why an op
posito policy should be persued. So
long as the negro remains politically
solid it necessitates a sinilar solidity
on the part of the wvhites. .,The only
way to maintain solidity on the part
of the whitos is to make white suprom
acy the insignia of our p)oliticall faith.
Thore is no use of blandishment,, or
falso lprotonses. Analyze the polities
of this State in any way you please
and you will find (this result--white
man against negro and negro against
white man. This is a deplorable con
dation, we admit, butL why is it so.
Because under the teachings of the
carpetbagger, the negroes Were taught
to hate the native whites and to spurn
any overtues bold out to him by the
them. This necessitated similar ao,
tion on the part of the whites, an'd we
knuow the results, the negro went to
the wall politically, and the white
man came out conqueror. This will
always be the result in a contest of this
kind, and in our opinion there is no
method by which the political solidity
ci the neuro can be so effectnally
broken up as that of white solidity. The
welfare of the negro and white man
%Iike depends upon white supremacy.
rho preservation of social order as
vell as that of the civilization of our
'ace depends upon it. These ends
,an only be accomplished by solid
toncert of action on the part of the
vhitos. Being naturally the superior
lace, possessing the education, expe
'ienco and property of the State,
with the machinery of the govern
ment in their possession, they can al
ways influence, by fair and legitimate
means, onough colored votes to give
,hem a majority, a hostile Federal
rlovernment to the contrary notwith.,
standing. This can be done with
'clear conscience and clean hands."
Once the negro is convinced (and
he is becoming more and more con.
vinced every day of his life) that the
whites are determined to maintain
their dupremacy, he will at once
abandon tho color line and cast- his
political fortune with his white neigh
bor. When this is done (and in our
opinion, by adhoreing to our straight.
out policy, it will not be long until it
is done] there will be a reorganization
of partios on other issues than that of
tho color line. Then the policy of our
Greenville friends might be adopted
with good results. But until that
Limo it will not do. There are huns
Ireds of white men in everyicounty in
Lbe upper portion of the State, at least.
who will not,under any circumstances,
vote for a nogro. You may call this
[)olitical prejudice, or selfishness if
you wish, but ie a fact, and there is no
use in denying it. Adopt your "con
ailiation plan" and place a negro on
Lhe Democratic ticket, in these upper
rounties, and you will soo an opposi
sion ticket elected every time, well
seasoned with white Radicals for the
Legislature. With the loss of the
votes of disgusted Democrats, the
3tate ticket would be lost,and with the
whito Radicals from the upper section
Tind their dusky allies from the o ow
or section of the State, the Liegisla-.
buro, and consequently the judicial
Jepartment of the State, would alwo

Our able Representative in Con,.
gross, Col. Aiken, spoke against the
tbill to refund the maturing United
States bonds. lie favored applying
the money in the United States Tr'eas
ury to the payment of the bonds as
thoy fail duo, arguing that a reservo
for the redemption of United States
notes is not necessary, because thoso
notes are everywhere as good as
coin. The News and Courier in com-.
men ting on Col. Aikon's speech says:
"Trhey (the United States notes)
would not be as good as coin a single
day, if it wore made apparent that
the Government could not redeem
thomn in coin on presentation. The
notes are at par now because they
can be exchanged for coin at any time,
aind while this is the case it is more
corivonient to use notes than coin,
and equally safe. The proposal to
apply the annual surplus revenue to
the payment of bonds is equally im,
practicable, in our opinion, because it
procludes any reduction of Federal
taxation. A reductien of taxation
now is more important than the fu-.
ture extinction of interest on the

dundant fulness and ulnsatisfactory brevity.
II, Much of that sort of newvs which do..

than up~on its interest to mankind. Frosa
morning t~o morning TuJN SUN prints a con
tinued story of the lives of real mien and we.
men, and of their deeds, plans, loves, bate.,
and troubles. This story is more varied and
more interesting than any romance that was

freshness, originality, accuracy, and decorum,
in the treatment of every subject.
IV. Honest comment. Tn. SUN'S habit ia
to speak out fearlessly about men and things..
V. Equal candor in dealing with each pe,.. .3

what is praiseworthy or to rebuke what is:
blamable in Democrat, or Republican.
VI, A bsolute independence of partisan er-,
ganizations, but unwavering loyalty to true
Democratic priniciples. The Sun believes that
the Gover nment which the Constitution gives
us is a good one to keep. its notion of duty
is to resist to its utmost power the efforts of
mien ini the Republican party to set up anoth
