wrangling endorsed-the Greenback ticket for"
State offioers. ACommee was apreitd
to confer with the State Executive Ceinamit
tee of the Greenback party fod arrAp the
terns of agreement. It is Understoo4 that
the Greenbackers are to give the Repabil
cans the county offices and members of the
Legislature for lite Republican party's sup.
port of their State ticket. In countles6
where the lepublicans are not able to
elect their ticket, straight out with the
the aid of the Greenbackers they will sup
port any so called Independents. The
Grcenba~k movement in this State has
proven to be just what we told our readers
it was at the outset. There are a few sore
heads so-called Democrats in the State who
ha'vc neither brains or character to recom.
mend them to the support of the Democratic
party, and as a cluak to disguise their real
derign they hnve thrown on the garmet't of
Greenbackism, with the hope of deceiving
enough Democrats to succeed in overthrow.
ing honest government in the State, The
success of the Greenback party means the
success of the lRadical party and the resto
ration of "five years good stealing in South
Carolina." The tenor of all the speeches
made by the Redicals in their convention
was that the support and success of the
G recnback party, through Republican
agencies, meant the restoration of the Re
Publican party to power. As a sample we
quote Miller and Brayton:
Mliller said that the great advantage he
expected from the endolersement of the
Greenback ticket. was that. it would teach
ie present rulers of Soith Carolir.a tle
lesson that. they can be split. ip and divi
ded and having done this in this election
he had no doubt taint by 1884 the Reptibli

Col. R. D. W.: Dear Sir-Your two lasi
received, contents noted. I do wish I knei
what Taft. wanted. I could write better and
more certain. Let mne only summarize:
1. As to ticket. One Ii. Beiniann, o
Walhalla, a German and particular friend od
Fred W. Waginer, and at whose house Johm
A. Wagener died, haiev Bourbons, has mon
ey, &c., and has influence Has been i:
lie Legislattire and ran again, bit ''count
ed out." lie might suit for secretary of
State, or comptroller, or adjutant, general.
Speak to T. J. M. about him. lie mty con
centrate the Germian vote.
2. You have also C. B. Farmer, V. P.
Clayton. of Fairfield county. "Tom" says
that. McLane will be on State ticket. It will
be unfortunate tot both ls,8ell and McLane
to run for office, The J're6a will ki/l themit,
lor it will he said that the movenent was one
to gratity o~fJice ,ecker8 Let NIcL. r-in tie
"Signal" and trait. Oppo8e his ruuning
prirately with ciiuion, &c. You iust scat
ter the men on State ticket allover the State,
and as J. B. C. is front Charleston that may
sat isty. But you caln mention the ntine of
.\lelchers anid iergmann, which will le
plelasunt to t hem, and give tle reason that
a distribution of oflicers over State desired.
8. As to myself, MeL. catme to Chester
and staye I some four hours. I was sit. i
dying bed. "'oir " saw him. But -Tom"
can only talk about his own Congressional
candidney. lie is crtz). Nothing else
will sitisty him, and McL. is in with him
to give him tle endorsenent. of Greenback
Cotvention so as to retire Catsh. Now will
Cash retire even then? No one can tell.
And if ilie Greeiback Conventio endorse
l'n a n t lie tepiublicant Convntion re
fus.e, wlint lien? "Toni" says a greal deal
haiit you cainnot depend tip-n about his
prosi)spects. And lie talks with such issur
ance as ailniost to persuide you it. is true
Aid lie haiis a starit, or I have given such.
But I do it very quietly. I have written
him up in "pipers, &c."
Youk lid better tell him very (Inletly tihe
ojj)osition to him i)y Tait & co. Tell it to
Alcl. airst, and see whiat lie says, and if it
is prulent to nomi nate or endorse uider
I lie c:rcumstsii , or to l)l)oilit i Colnter

tr reter it back to the Fitth Coigressioisil
