case of Mackey vs. Dibble of this State. The
Republicans retused to investigate Mackey's
forgery in the testimony taken in his in

good cause and canti afford to fight it out if
it takes all summer.

R. E. BIOWEN, Chr.
J. E. Bonus, Sec'ry.
To the Democratic Votera of Pickena Cotnty.
We urge upon you the supreme import
once of Registration. Every Democratic
voter In the County should consider it his
patriotic duty to register and cast his voie
for white supremacy and good government
Some we regret to learn oppose the regis
tratjon litw, and sty they will not register
because they are op~posed to carrying a
pass for the privilege of exercising th
right to vote. This is too:ish and unpatri
tic. If yon lived in an, of the States
North of Mason and Dickson's line you
would be compelled to register before you
could vote at any election. The Registra
lion law has worked beneficially in some of
(hie Southern States and in the municipal
elections in the cities of Charleston and
Columbia in our own State. Our Slit to Cons I.
tution requires a registration of voters, and
tie quest ioli has been mooted whether or nut
anty election in lhe State since the odoption of
[le Constitution in 1868, has been legal, be
causo of the failure of registration. The
I)emocratic party before it came into power,
abused the Radical party for its failure to
provide by legislation for tile registration
ohf voters as required by the Constitution,
anid urged this in 1876, as one reason why
they should be defeated. Tile election laws
iuder which all of our elections have been
held since 1868 were framed by the Radical
par~ty with the view of ballot box stuffing,
r'epeatinig~and other frauds, for the purpose
of keeping themlselves in power indefinat ely.
hlow successfully they availed themnselve'.
of the law for eight years. is too freshl ill
the memnories of all to need repetition here.
In piassinig the present Registration lawv.
the Legislature only di whati th osiu
lion reuires. It abridges no man's right,
but. protects tile jpgjity of the ballot bix. It
requires every voter to vole in his own
townlship, thus preventing the massing ot
tile colored voters at any partic ular point
to be automaitically voted by some lenader,
probatly contrary to their own convictions,
1I prevonts repeating and ballot box stuf
fong and. removes any pretence for dragging
pealceable, law abiding citizens before the
United States Court by partisanl oflicials to
be tried by pocked ignorant negrojuries. In
the opinion of this comminittee, it is a wise
laiw, hut however muich somo good Demo
cratls may differ withI us upon this point we
would urge thecm not to let their opposition
lead ltem into the wveakniess of voluntar
ily distranchisitig thiemusalves; for it. must
be remiembered that. a failure to register
will deprive you of the privilege of voting.
If you desire Ihe law repeatled, the only
way to secure it is by registering and vo
ting for men who will carry out your views.
If there is any wrong in the Democratic
party, let it be corrected within our own
ranks. We can not trust power again to
the hlands of tihe Radical party Wheon they
were in power, our taxes almost amouanted
ho confiwcation; tihe Execut iv'e, Judicial, and
Legislative diepalrtmenits of the Government
were alike mneilicienit and corrupt; society
was subverted and intelligence and virtue
set at defiance
Thleir offenses were so numerous as well
us enormous, that we cannlot enumerate
hem in an address of this character. Only
sontrast Ill state of affairs since the De
mocraciy hals come into power. Taxation
lias been reduced about. two thlirds; order
has been broughlt out of chaos,,and our se
cuirities that were nearly worthlless are now
selling at pair; our Executive and Judicial
officers are capable and honest; the courlts
are open to every citizen whieie hlis rights
mnuy be maintained and his wrongs correc
ted. Peace and quielude reign supreme all
over our border, and our people are beco
ming happy, prosperous and contented. No
sane man whoe has the interest of the State
at heart desires a change in this condition
of effairs, but. unless you register andt qual
ify yourselves to vote, a change might be
effected. In conchilsion, we again urge
uaon every Democratic voter in Pickens
Cmunty the jsieat importance of 'istra
tion. Let the Chubs, ats soon as reorgani.
zed, take the subject In hand and appoint
strong committees on regisurption who will
see that every Democrat within their reach
is properly regi .teredi. Let us cease all
bickering, close up (1ar ranks and cast a
solid vote In the approaching election for
hlonest governlmenit and Anglo-Saxon civill

Tho-Registration law was passed
in accoidance with the mandasto of
the 8tate Constitution directing the
Legislaturo to provide from timte to
time for the regist ration of all eloo
tors. In Radicia time8 the Demo
crats, year after year, domanded
that a lRegistration law be enacted.
The falure of the Radicals to enat
such a law was one of the wrongs
on which Democrats iaid most stress.
It was urged that the Radicals were
opposed to rogitstration becataue reg
istration would prevent, in a large
measture, both general repeating antid
voting by minors. The Radicals (lid
not wait a fair election, aind they
den ed the people the protection tag
iinst frand which the Constitutinii
had provided tor. In enacting the
R'egistration law the State Legislau
turo did what the Coititutiun di
The great advantage to be deri
ved from the Registration law is
tlhat, it identifics the voter and tixes
his rosidence, so that it becon.os
diffieult in) tibe extreme for another
person to vot) in hii name. Th)e
voter must exhibit his certificate of
regis(ration, or he cann111ot Vote. In
ordt that lie may pIaMS himself ofi
as 1, he inust, billtn B'" certiicalto,
ard must vote in) the precinct, whire
B lives, in the place where B is
ktown and where an impostor is
really sure to be detected. This will
-o far to purify the ballot box. It is
in itselt' a suficiont reason for reeg
istration. But the Democrats will
gain in other ways. They will know
in advance, where the heaviost, op
positio vote Imst be cast, and they
can adjust their canvusing to the
strength of that opposition, putting
in the hardoet work where mbost
converts ate needed.
One objection that the whito pen-,
pio have to Registration is tha t. it, is
troublesomeo. 1i, is, but is it not
wor th the trouble? Th'lo ballot is
ourI solo0 protetion. Should the
w hite pe'ople di-franuchise thomsolves
by declising to regiator, the State,
as tar as5 votes go, will be nt the
mercy of t he negrocs. rTo the ne
groes the right to votoe came with
out labor and withont sacrifice. I t
was conferred npon themn as a free
gilt. '1' hey havo not worked for it
or' suffered for it. To thie whi te
man, on the other hand, the ballot
is the badge and1( pledge oif civil anid
religrious liberty, for which his fore
fathers fought, and agiute td for ee,
turies. It is the conlcretoA resul t of
th13 gropings aifter frecedomn whieh
begani long before Kinrg Johnt's time.
To all English speak inrg peopleh it is
the token1 tLhnt th le plea of thie Eng
lish barions, t he civil warts, the rero
lutions of'14310 and 1688, the revolt
of tho American Colonies and the
accompl utuwt. of A merican Inido -
pondI(ence, were suIccess5i v4 steps in
the ma arcn to cotr; pleto gov'ernminent,
by tihe voice of the wvhole people. -
1t is inloneiiva&bl that t lie wi hi to
man shoul d not prizo thle ballot. The,
r~egr'o will tram p a score of mni les to
vote or to rogister'. Is the ballot
less to the white man than thle tie
gro? It is hard to believe it, be%
cause it is har'd tom believe that the'
sv mohol of' peonatl liber't.y is of no
conicern to) thte men who woroi' born
for' it antd who growv with it, and 1.0
whom it belongs with the white
sk ins which set them apart from
other people of the eath.
Therec is a notion that it is nndig.
nified to ak for' a "pass" to vote. "A
"pass is wh*at. the) certificate of r'e

that the bearer hats done something
that the law required himi to do, br
that lie has been chosen for apa.
t-hou ar work. Thro~9 is no huiia ii
tion in that. In truth a certificatei
of registration is something to be
prizedl, not somrethinig to be sneered
at. It is evidence that the bearer
is a qualified voter, who understands
the law, and, like a good citizen,
R(egistraction takes time, of course,
and so does voting. But withouat
voting South Lb~Unrolina cannot halve
good government, and without r'g,
istration there is no Voting. The,1
registration of voters is needed to
check the fraudulent voting of the
Rladicals at our elections, it is for
the good of the 81,ate and the good
of the party. The white man who
does not register, w hen he un rder,
stands what, registration is for amid
whlat, it means, is a p~olitical anom
aly. It can be mnade clear'. with a
little exo: ion on . the~ part of the
IDemocratic committees, that regis,
