Of political par ty ism.
. Your committee ? uro of the opinion
that, abstractly considered, proportional
representation is a great governmental
principlo^-a wise, just measure of re?
form, and one absolutely necessary to
make unlimited suffrage consistent with
peace, order and security. It enters the
political body as ? saving, a conserving
?l?ment. It comes to leaven the lump
of Demooraoy, nod to give tho estonce
of genuine: Republicanism,. whioh is,
briefly stated, thorough and general rep?
resentation. But if proportional repre?
sentation he an admirable system in any
government founded upon tho populut
will, your committee hold that tho plan
is peculiarly applicable to such a con?
dition bf society as this State now pre?
Your committee do not affirm thal
this would care all the diseases of thc
body politic; bat they may, without ex
travagance, suggest that tho system o:
proportional representation, if adoptee
by those who wield the numericabpowef
would alleviate many of tho evils inoi

Your committee ar? aware of the fso
that this'measure bf electoral reform, i
it shall bs promptly realized by us, mus
come from tho...dominaitt party of th
State. Whether it will come or not, w
cannot decide. In. oithor event, the mi
nority in South Carolina put forth thei
claims in this behalf, i It is their right
Should it' be denied, the responsibilit
must rest^ upon those who use thus tb

Since it is the nature of majorities t
chango, it may be well for the dominai
party to consider whether the adoptio
of proportional representation may n<
for them, be the best polioy for the fi
tare, as well BB tho highest wisdom f(
the present. Respectfully submitted,
J. P. THOMAS, for Committeo.
The report of the Executive Cammi
tee on tho subjoofc of taxation withoi
representation was submitted, aud is ;
The Executive Committee, to who
wore referred the grievances of tiixatu
without representation in the taxii
body, and to suggest a lemedyfortl
existing evils, beg'loavo to report th
the presont political and financial cone
lion of South Carolina is a forcible iii
melancholy illustration of tho evils i
salting from taxation without represe
talion. The judicial investigations la
ly had in the United States Court f
this District prove, beyond controvun
that astounding frauds wore practiced
tho last election, and demonstrated t
necessity of a remedy.
The theory of the Constitution is tl
the people shall be folly and fairly rt
resented, and provision is made in tl
Instrument to protect minorities. Th
in the House of Representatives, 1
whole body of the people is represenl
and the majority rules. In tho Sena
the States aro represented, and I
smallest has an equal vote with I
largest Stato, The one is intended to
a check on tbe other. While the i
lasted, passion took the place of rea;
the States represented in the Senate
aside tho' Constitution, forgot tl
sovereignty and blindly followed
lend of conquest. Since the war,
States that struggled for what they s
posed was a constitutional right h
?ot been represented, their Senators
not natives, or, if uuJtives, aro not re]
seotativo men. So that the check of
States, as represented in the Senate,

legislation bas been partisau, sectic

Parish system, whioh existed in our S
Oonstitution before the war, operate
a check upon all legislation of tho n
majority. Tho.now Constitutions of
and '68 abolished that conservative
ment. Under the Constitution of '0
is possible no evil would have resul
because intelligence and property <
equally represented and all the voten
longed to the same caste. Undei
Oonstitution of '68, however, a new
ment was brought into the voting po
Men of a different race and caste, un
ca ted slaves just emuuoipated, an
preBsiblo people, whose passions
prejudices could bo easily excited,
suddenly olotbed with ibo eleotivo fran*
chino and made not ouly A power, but the
controlling power in the State.
Considering our condition, then, the
result: was inevitable. The newjly en?
franchised vrere not only jealous of their
acquired liberty, but suspioious o? tho
feelings and intentions of their late
owners. They were Ignorant of politi?
cal affairs, totally uninstructed in the
Science of government and naturally
turned to the men who had flocked here
ns birds of prey. It was equally natural
for the native, respectable and intelli?
gent white people, who had heretofore
controlled affaira, to feel a supremo dis?
gust, and to hold themselves aloof from
this mass of ignorance and vice. It
mnsb DOW be remembered that the large
majority of the gentlemen in tho State,
of exp?rience, patriotism and virtue,
were laboring under the political disabi?
lities of the reconatrtuction Acts, which
prevented thom from taking part in
But time, with its healing influences,
has shown to the colored people that thc
white people have no disposition to de?
prive thom of any of thoir rights, civil
or political, that have been conferred or
them. It has proved to the white peoph
that tho colored citizens, generally, fuel
no enmity against thom, aro not dispos?e
to oppress them, and aro willing, if no
anxious, to avail themselves of thci
learning, experience, virtue and patriot
ism. It has also proved to tho adven
turers, white aud colored, that tho pye
of tho milice colored people aro opeuccl ti
thoir selfishness aud rapacity.
Ilaving arrived ut this conclusion, th
question is, how can wo avail ourselvo

got rid of the bad influenco which ha
heretofore controlled it, using tho colore
people as mere voting chattels, tb plan
der and ruin this devoted State? The
need and d?sire tho virtue, intelligeuc
and experiouce of tho native white pee
pie. Tho white people cannot maiutai
the anoient virtue, dignity and- honor c
this old State, unless the native colore
people will cc operate TT?th them. Th
corruption of this State Government i
notorious; bribes are openly offered tc
and reaeived by. Senators and Benn

speculating in the stocks and bonds c
the 'State; all these great crimes ai
being perpetrated openly hero in tl:
capital, and there hos not been tho'fir.

n a word, the anoient honor of tl
proud old State is lost and gone. Evei
white man and every colored man, wi

Your committee believe that the publ
mind is ripe to correct this evil aaa cu

Legislature tho passage of au electh
law, by which tho C0.0UO tnx-payii
voters will have a proportionate repi

In this etat om o nt there is nothing presump?

Tho theory of tito euro by Dr. Schonck'u me

losophy requires no argnmout. It is self-as?
Tho Soawoed Tonie and Mandrake Pills aro
the lirat two weapons with, whh-li tho citadel
of tho malady ia assailed.' Two-thirds of tho
cases of consumption originate in dyspepsia
and a functionally disordered liver. With this
condition tho bronchial- tubes "sympathize"
with tho stomach. They respond to the mor
hiiio ari ion of thc liver. Here, thon, e?mes
tho culminating result, and the setting in,
With all its distressing symptoms, of
Tho Mandrake Pills aro composed of ono of
nature's noblest gifts-tho Podophillum Pcl
tu.tu.rn. They possess all tho blood-search?
ing, alterative properties of calomel; but, un?
like c&loinol, they
?LEAVE NO STING 1IKI11ND."
The work of cure is now beginning. The
vitiated and mucous deposita in tho bowels
s? nd in the alimentary canal are ejected. The
liver, like a clock, is wound up. It arouacs
from its torpidity. Tho stomach acts respon?
sively, and the paticut begins to feel that he
ia getting, at last,
A SUPPLY OF GOOD BLOOD.
Tho Seaweed Tonio, in conjunction with tho
Pills,.permeates and assimilates with the food.
Obytiuoation is now progresaing without ita
previous tortures. Digestion becomes pain?
less, and tho cure ia seen to bo at haud. ?
There ia no more flatulence, no exacerbation
of the stomach. An appetite acts in.
Now comos the greatest Blood Purifier ever
yet given by an indulgent father to suffering '
man. Schcnok's Pulntonic Syrup conies in to
perform tts fa net io? s and to hasten and com
p?ete tho cure. It enters at once upon its
work. Nature cannot bc cheated. It collects
and ripous the impaired and diseased portions
ot tho lungs. In the form of gatherings, it
prepares thom for expectoration, and lo! in a
very short timo, tho malady is vanquished,
tho rotten throne that it occupied is renovated
and made new, and the patient, in all tho dig?
nity or regained vigor, steps forth to enjoy
thc manhood or the woin.iiiliood that waa
GIVEN UP AS LOST.
Tho second thing is, tho patients mud stay
in a wurm room until they got well; it n ai
mont impossible to provent tukiug cold when
jAii lungs are diseased, but it must he pre?
sented, or a care canuot Ito effected. Fresh
air and riding out, especially iu this suction
of tho coilutry in the fall and winter benson,
are all wroug. Physicians who recommend
th.vi course loso their patients, if their lungs
aro badly diseased, ultu yet, because they aro
in thu liouso, they must not sit down quiet:
they must walk about tho room as much and
as fast as tho strength will hear, to got up' a
good circulation of blood. Tho patients
must keep in good spirits-ho determined to
get well. This has a great deal to do with the
appetite, and is tho great point tn gain.
To despair of cure aftersuch evidence of ita
possibility in tho worst cases, and moral cer?
tainty in all others, is sinful. Dr. Hcbom-k's
personal statement to thu Faculty of his own
cure was in these uiodust words:
"Many years ago I was in tho last stages of
consumption; con flo nd to my bed, and at one
time my physicians thought that I could not
live a week; then, liku a drowning man catch?
ing at straws, I hoard of and obtained tho
preparations which I uow ofter lo the public,
aud they made a perfect cure of me. lt
seomed to mo that I could feel them penetrate
my whole system. They soon ripened tho
matter in my lungs, aud 1 would spit up mei o
than a pint of offensive yellow matter every
morniug fora long timo.
"As soon RB that began to subside, my
cough, lu vor, pain and night sweats all began
to leave hie, and my appetite became so great
that it was with difficulty that I could keep
from oatiog too much. I soon gained my
strength, and have grown in ll.-nh ever
"I waa weighed shortly aftrr my recovery,"
added tho Doctor, "then hulking like- a nure
skeleton; my weight was emly ninoty-soveu
pound-; my" present weight is two bundl ed
amt twenty-five  pounds, aud for years I
have enjoyed uninterrupted health."

The directions for taking the medicines aro
adapted to tho intelligence oven of a child.
Follow those directions, and kind nature will
do tho rest, excepting that in somo cases tho
Maudrako Pills aro to bo taken in incrcaaod

POISONOUS MKDICIMCS-Tho theory
that tho virus of diseaeo can |be safely coun?
teracted by doscB of poison, is fnleo and dan?
gerous. Within tho last twenty-five years,
not ICBB than a ecuro of virulent poisons havo
been added to tho repository of tho medical
profession. They are given in small dos?s,
othorwiso they would destroy life immediately;
bnteven in minute quantities, they produce,
ultimately, very disastrous c-fftcls. It is un
wiso and unphllosophical to employ, as reme?
dies, powerful and insidious drugs, which, in
subjugating ono disease, sow tho seeds of
another still moro unmanageable. None of
thoso terrible medicaments operates with as
much directness and certainty upon tho
cauBCs of diBcaBO au HOSTETTER'B STO?
MACH BITTERS, a tonic and corrective, with?
out a single dc'eleriotts ingredient in its compo?
sition. Arsenic and quinia are given for in?
ter mittents; bromide of potaBsium for nerv?
ous disorders; strychnine and pruBsic aold for
general debility; mercury, in various forms,
for liver complaint; preparations .of chloro?
form and opium for sleeplessness; and yet
theso deadly drugs^do not comparp, as spe?
cifics ?or thc diseases abovo enumerated, with
that who'cBomo vegetable invigorant and'
alterative, while they aro all so pernicious that
it is astonishing any phi ai ciao should take tho
responsibility of.preecribingthem. Let inva?
lids, for their own sakes, try tho Bitters bo
foro they resort to tho poisons. Tho relief
they will experience from a course of tho
harmless specific, will render a recourse to the
unBaafo preparations referred to, quite un
neces8ary._._ .Mar 9 t6
