good of the whole country. He referred to
the principles en which the Federal Govern?
ment was organized, and declared that they
had been subverted since the war. He said
he had always been a Democrat; he was elected
vice-President as a Union Democrat, and he
had not and would not swerve from the true
faith. He condemned the recent State Con?
vention for Ignorance. He then read a resolu?
tion, adopted by the State Convention, favor?
ing the restoration of the Southern States to
their rlght3 as the sovereign f tates of the
American Union, and said lt was secession and
a revolution in disguise, and admonished the
people against 'repeating the errors of the past
civil strife. He recommended a close alliance
with the National Democracy, and a choice of
Governor, membefs of Congress and the Leg?
islature free from suspicion of secession. He
condemned the State Convention for not dis?
claiming secession, and suggested the holding
of a primary meeting to exhibit the tone of the
State of Tennessee on the subject. He ciosed
wit . an appeal for prudence and discretion, to
keep off Reconstruction and military rule.
The Blooily Programme.
The diabolical programme of the Scott
party is to be carried out to the bitter end.
On yesterday, THE VERY DAY DESIGNATED
FOR BEGINNING THE BLOODY WORK, disturb?
ances are reported to have taken place in
Laurens and in Newberry. Large bodies of
armed men were in the field: and a sanguin
I ary collisiou between the whites and blacks
was momentarily expected. Two negroes
are said to have been killed, and the eflort
will be made, a3 directed in the Confidential
Circular, to cast the whole blame upon the
Heartily^ glad are we that tho whites are
armed and ready. In their ability, as well
as willingness, to defend themselves, lies
their only hope and ours.
The Confidential Circular is no hoax. Its
absolute truth, a3 an expression of the pur?
poses of the Scott pirty, i3 proved by the
events of yesterday.
How to Ensure a Pair Election.
T:ie State elections ol October 19 will be
held under the General Election law, approv?
ed March 1, 1370. That law authorizes the
Governor to appoint three commissioners of
elections for each county, which commission?
ers designate the precincts, and appoint
three managers of elections for each pre?
cinct in the county for which they are ap?
pointed. The managers are required to de?
liver the poll lists, and the boxes containing
the ballots, to the respective commissioners
of elections within three days after the day of
election. These remain in the keeping of
the commissioners until the Tuesday follow?
ing the election, when the commissioners
count the vote of each precinct. Within ten
days from this time thc commissioners must
make a statement of the result
For ten days, therefore, tbe ballot-boxes,
and the poll lists, are In the exclusive cus?
tody of the commissioners of elections.
These commissioners can, if they choose, so
manipulate the ballots a3 to elect, or defeat,
whom they please. Their opportunity for
fraud and trickery is as complete as the
most venal politician eau desire. Nor has
any pains been taken to appoint, as com?
missioners, those men only who enjoy the
contidence ol both political parties. Gover?
nor Scott, to the best of our knowledge, has
picked up his commissioners without regard
to their intelligence or their trustworthi?
ness. The fruits of months of labor, the
destiuiea of South Carolina, are in the keep
iug of a body of mee whose chief, if not
only, qualification i3 a blind devotion to the
interests of Scott aud his Ring.
This ?3. the position of affairs, and it is one
which causes grave uneasiness to all who
desire, as we do, a peaceful aud fair election.
The Reform party are prepared to abide by
the verdict of the Gr?nd Jury of the people.
If the Reformers are fairly and squarely
beaten they will stand it like men, but they I
do not mean to be cheated out of their vic?
tory, by: election conimissionera or any other
of Scott'3 officials. Thi3 feeling la doubtless
entertained by many of the more decent
members of the Scott party. But whether it
i3 or not, we have the right to demand, in
behalf of the Union Reform party, that all
reasonable security be-given that the elec?
tion shall be .fair,, and that the vote shall be
fairly counted and reported., Governor Scott
flatly declined to appoint one commissioner
in each county from the ranks of the Re?
form party. This, in itself, suggests an in?
tention to tamper with the vote. From Scott,
however, we expect no redre=3. Whatever
consideration and fair dealing we receive
mu3t come from men who have more liberali?
ty and more sagacity than are possessed by
Unless the Scott party have formed a de
I liberate pian to elect, by fraud, their own
candidates, under the convenient cover of
the election law; unless they are systemati?
cally insincere in their published desire that
the election be conducted fairly and justly,
they must be willing to meet the Reform
party half-way in the effort so to manage the
canvassing of the vote at the State elections,
that the rights of both partie3 shall be fully
protected. No such protection is found in
the election law. That law enables the
electiou commissionera to elect whom they
please. These commissioners muat be hedged
about, and fenced in, or we cannot be sure
of having a fair count ol the voto. But, by
matual consent, a plan can be adopted
which will make the assurance of the honest
Scottitcs doubly 3ure, and will, at the 3ame
time, satisfy the Reformers. That plan is,
for the Executive Committees of the Reform
The Plan Proposed.
and Radical patties to select, for-each' pre
cinct in each county, two responsiblecitizens
from among the members of their party,
who, as a joint committee of four, shall stay
with the ballot-boxes from the time thal the
first vote is petted until the vote Us finally
I canvassed by Hie commissioners. Each
county committee would appoint its own
committees of two. There could be no collu?
sion. Indeed, "we cannot see why any fair
minded man should object to a proposition
which puts both sides upon an equal footing,
and secures to both au honest declaration of
a peaceful election.
This proposition has already been submit?
ted to Mr. Alonzo J. Ransier, who, although
the candidate of the Radical party for Lieu
tenant-Governor, expressed his perfect wil?
lingness to give it his assent and support.
Mr. Ransier is the chairman of the State
Executive Committee of the Radical party,
and authorizes us to say that he desire3,
above all things, a fair and impartial elec?
tion, and that be is ready to urge and ad?
vise the adoption of the protective plan here
described. Thi3 laudable evidence of a libe?
ral spirit will not be forgotten.
Thirding for Blood.
The confidential circular of the chiefs of
the Scott party, printed in another column,
discloses a plot so monstrous as to be.whol
ly incredible if it came from a band of ad.
venturers less unscrupulous and less crimi?
nal than those who now grow sleek and fat
upon the spoils of the people. But the men
who violate their official oaths, who scofl at
honor and virtue, who foment strife and
strive to bring about a war of races, who
are struggling to snvo themselves from thc
penitentiary or the shadow of the gallows,
would willingly sacrifice the lives of "a score
"of their prominent leaders," if tho bloody
offering would ensure them immunity for the
past and license in the future. The watch?
word of Reform stirs the hearts and quickens
the pulses of all honest citizens. Already
the prospects of Scott grow desperate. Un?
less the tide can be made to roll back, the
reign of corruption will end on the third
Wednesday in October. The Radical weap?
ons cannot dint the armor of Reform.
Threats will not close the mouths of a people
who cry aloud for an honest administration.
? Winchester rifles have no terrors for the old
Boldiers of the South. There is but one
j chance for the Scott Ring. If they can, at
any-cost, unite the blacks against the whites,
anti set the mark of Caiu upon the Reform?
ers' brow, the bright pageant of harmony
and truth will fade away, and victory will be
possible once more to the foe of purity and
This is the object of the confidential circu?
lar, to which are attached the initials of the
names of B. F. Whitlemore, Comptroller
General Neagle, and Treasurer Niles G. Par?
ker. This circular deliberately proposes the
murder of a score of colored men, that the
cause of the Scott Ring may be saved. And
there is nothing in the record of that Ring
to indicate that its members are incapable
of concocting the diabolical plot which is
laid bare to-day. Every murdered col?
ored man, by whomever killed, would, be
worth a thousand votes. to Scott The Re?
formers have treated their adversaries with
all tho dignity compatible with the inde?
cency ot their subject, and they have given
the colored people an earnest of their kind?
ness and good faith. Nothing in the way of
violence was to be expected from the Re?
formers. But blood must bo shed. And
the confidential circular proposes to slay
more colored men, as Randolph was slain,
that the party of corruption and shame may
be saved from extinction.
A3'we have said, the proposition to slay
these inoffensive colored men, in order that
Scott and his Ring may prosper and live, is
well uigh too monstrous for belief. Yet, it
is not more monstrous than the extrava?
gance and deception of South Carolina Radi?
A Word to the County Committees.
We suggest that the Executive Commit?
tees of the Union Reform party in the dif?
ferent counties put themselves in communi?
cation at once with the Executive Commit?
tees of the Radical party, for the purpose of
ascertaining whether the latter will ogree to
the Appointment of a joint committee, con?
sisting of two members from each party, for
every election precinct, which committee
shall remain with the ballot boxes from the
opening of the polls until the vote is finally
canvassed. This, without interfering in any
way with the managers or commissioners of
elections, would make it impossible for any
one to perpetrate a fraud upon the voters of
the State. Mr. Ran3ier, the chairman of
the State Executive Committee, authorizes
the publication of the statement that he
thinks thi3 proposition fair and just, and we
presume that there will be no difficulty in
making the arrangement.
We shall be glad to hear the result of the
conference between the several committees.

duced to the public Owing to peculiar treatment
in distillation, lt- ls THE PUREST' STIMULANT
KNOWN. See extract from certificate of analysis
by Prof. Stillman, State Chemist, of Connecticut:
"I have carefully examined the sample of 'Cen?
tury White Wheat Whiskey.' In color, taste and
odor, this liquor ls without fault. It is entirely
free from any deleterious substance whatever.
The absence of ail trace of lead, and of other
poisonous or hurtful nunga lu lt, ls absolute. By
distillation, I And its alcoholic strength to be ex
exactly that of proof spirits by the present Uni?
ted States law, viz: 60 parts by volume (meastuxL

The CENTURY WHITE WHEAT BOURBONS
are most carefully distilled from selected stock,
after which they are stored away in charred bar?
rels until lt reaches a certain age, when it ls re?
distilled by a peculiar process which extracts the
Fusil Oils and other deleterious substances inher?
ent in all whiskies, and leaves lt a perfectly pure
Whiskey. After this it ia stored away to ripen
and mellow with age, which it does In a much
greater degree than any whiskey can which ls not
similarly treated. The older grades of CENTURY
BOURBONS (XXX and XXXX) challenge compari?
son with regularly distille J whiskies or any age
or price. Numerous testimonials can be shown
