PXLd dCS AD POLICIES.
A TAvZ WITH COL A. . McCLURE
ON IMPORTANT TOPICS.
The Editor of the Philadelphia "Times"
Submits to an Interview And Discusses
Some of the Live Issues of the Day.
Col. A. K. McClure, the distinguish
a editor of the Philadelphia Times,
recently passed through Charleston,
and was interviewed by a reporter of
the News and Courier. In reply to
requests for an expression of his views
upon different matters now greatly
engaging the public attention, Col.
CIvIL SERVICE REFORM.
"In the first place, we have more
professional politicians in the North
than vou have here. We have a great
deal of dissatisfaction as to the civil
service reform policy of the President
but it-is among the politicians who are
so by trade and who expect Mr.
Cleveland to do just what he has
promised not to do. But there i? no
doubt that the overwhelming sentiment
of the Democrats of the North is in
favor of Mr. Cleveland's policy; and
tMat sentiment is growing stronger
day by day for two reasons: First, he
is iloing more and more to satisfy the
reasonable wishes of the Democrats W
filling ofces; and second, they are
ting to understand better and better
w wise that policy is. If the Demo
cratic party do not sustain Mr. Cleve
laud in his present policy they will
utterly destroy the party ; it will go to
pieces and be broken up-diiitegrat
"There is another thing," continued
Col- McClure, "that is steadily streng
theing Cleveland at the Nortb, and
-ti at is the growing confidence in him
of business circles, which, you know,
are very largely Republican in the
North. He has the confidence of in
dustrial, commercial and financial
men, and those who regard business
as of more importance than politics.
As to the dissatisfaction existing, there
.is not one-quarter as much with Mr.
Cterpland in the Democratic party as
there was with Mr. Lincoln in the
Republican party during his term of
office. I have no doubt whatever that
before Mr. Cleveland has filled one
half of his term of office, unless some
thing entirely unexpected and not of
his own creation should ha ppen, he
wilt be the strongest President this
country has had sir.ce the war."
"Are the mass of Independent Re
publicans satisfied- with the Adminis
tration of Cleveland?" asked the Re
THE LDEPENDENT REPUBLICANS.
"The great mass of the Independent
.Republicans that supported Mr. Cleve
land, have entire confidence in him
and heartily sustain him. They are
very:independent, of course, and do
ot sustain any person blindly. They
_eqnat approye of everything he has
done, but they have an abiding faith
in 'his inherent integrity of purpose
and in bi'ability, with all his embar
rassments, to work out his policy and
to make it a success. They are en
tirely satisfied with him as President
auqwrith his general policy. As I
e said before, there are a great
mny Redublicans in commercial and
4t nnial circles who voted against
h~M,*o now have a great deal more
. It~-n him than they ever had ina
DmiatcPresident; and whilst he
Mitost the faith - of a very few of tbe
Independents, if any, he has gained
. iljlath of a very large propornion of
the miost intelligent business Repub
-licans of the country.
*ZOW ThE PARTIES ARE AFFECTED.
As to the effect of Mr. Cleveland's
* pini tion upon the organization
f ilities Col. McClure said:
The'facts I have just stated will
-show that the effect of Mr. Cleveland's
conusehas'been:to visibly weaken the
~or ~ ti'on of both parties in the
THE PESmmENT AND THE SENATE.
IHow is the President's course in
the ccntest with the Senate on ques
~ions of removals regarded in the
1%orter?"hbe was asked. Col. McClure
"Ale is very earnestly and cordially
anstaind by the entire Democratic
jiarty, and by a very large proportion
otahe Republicans in his contest with
the Siuate. ' He will undoubtedly be
sustained ,by the Republican Senate."
THE GARLAND MIATrER.
In regard to the general opinion of
Attorhey General Garland's relations
to the Government Col. McClure said:
- "All parties have absolute faith in
the personal integrity and confidence
--in the ability of Attorney General
Garland. Yet it must be conceded
that his connection with the Pan-Elec
tric affair is a misfortune to himself
sud a misfortune to the Admistration.
--because it puts the Administration
upon the defensive, and that is always
- r itau unfortunate position. The
chief misfortune of it is that it is visi
- fle to the 'public that, in an impor
tant legal controversy which the Gov
einment has assumed, its chief law
~soffieer, and confessedly its ablest, is
nbt in positir to represent the Gov
ernent by reason of a very innocent
coftnedtionl whiich he formed three
yers ago in the organiz~ation of the
~an-Electric Company. He can in no
waybenefit his own company or his
own stock by any legal proceedings,
-.or if he were to set aside the Bell
patent he would either give the patent
to Grey or decide that the whole thing
was unpatentable, and therefore it
conld not in any way benefit the Pan
Electric Company. But at the same
time it is a good sign to see public
opinion sensstive on the subject."
After a. very carefil inquiry on the
subject for two days in Washington,
Col. McClure states his belief that
there will be no revision, of the tarif
at this session of Congress. The Re
publioans nnfortunately have consoli
dated against a revision as a mat ter of
party policy, and Morrison will not
present a bill to Congress that the
Democrats would pass. Besides, if it
were passed by the House, it would
not pass the Senate.
In regard to the outlook as to the
suspension of silver coinage Col. Mc
- Theie' will be no suspension of
silvercoinage. The silver craze is the
outgrowth of the greenback craze with
iner'essed proportions, and with a
- goodmunsdation of right for it. The
only diffculty is that they do not make
a dollar a dollar. They might just as
well make a 25-cent dollar as an 80-cent
d~llar. But I believe that there will
be legislation upon the subject, without
limiting silver coinage, that will either
.wt-e the silver dollar worthy of the
nation or will hinder it from tmaking!
any disturbance in the financial affairs
of this country. I do not look at all
for a suspension of the coinage, There i
is no need to ao it. The country can
stand aul the silhwer that can be coined
it the%, will coin an honet dollar.
THE NEW SOUTH.
Concerning the people of the South,
Col. McClure said that "this section is
now for the first time in a position to
begin a- rapid growth. Never before
has she been in buch good pi ition to
command the entire confidence of capi
tal at the North. While there has been
generally a confidence in the tranquii
itv of the South, even before the clec
tion of Cleveland, still it was al wa% s
said: 'Wait until these people get
into power, then there will be a dis
turbance, a disposition to reverse the
judgment of the war, to make prop
erty unsafe and society turbulent.'
Now it is seen that the South, instead
of undertaking to disturb politics, has
gone to work to command the conti
dence of capital in every part of the
word, to invite immigration, and now
for the first time money, which is very
sensittve, is free from all doubt as to
its safety in every part of the South.
Our large surplus of money and skilled
labor must very soon turn south,
where it can be very much better re
warded than in the North. They will
go to the manufacturing of iron and
the development of coal, and the spi:.
ning and weaving of cotton and all
the various and diversified industries
which those things carry with them.
As a consequence the tide of Northern
and foreign immigration will tu-n
southward instead of westward, be
cause the West is every year becoming
less and less inviting to foreign emi
"I regard the prospects of the South
as even much better than the Southern
people themselves regard them. There
is nothing in the history of the world
that can be compared with the efforts
of the Southern people to rehabilitate
themselves. Considering-the institu
tions under which they grew up, their
system of labor which has been so vio
lently revolutionized, and the necessity
for diversifying their industries, of
which they knew little or nothing, it
is marvellous how they have adapted
themselves to the new order of things
and to what a stage of advancement
they have arrived in a few years.
Pennsylvania has much more reason
to fear the South in the manufacture
of iron and in the competition than
any foreign country. You will draw
a large portion of our industry to your
section, and we, as we have always
done, will learn so nething new and go
at it. There cannot be anything more
insane than the raising of cot. a' here
in the South, where you have the bene
fit of a splendid water power that
never freezes, and where everything
cheapens production, and then to ship
that cotton away to bleak New Enz
lnnd, and there to have it spun and
woven. That system cannot la,.t in
the New Soutfi. Whenever capital
comes South, where it is bound to
conse, there will be a revolution; and
it cannot be far distant."
FARXERS TO THE FRONT.
Call for an Agricultural Convention at
Columbia--An Address Setting Forth the
Grievances of tho Tillers of the Soil.
To the Farmers of South Carolina:
Seventy-six per cent. of our State's
population are actively engaged in
agricultural pursuits. At least one
half of the remainder are directly de
pendent upon the far-mers for the
means of a livelihood. We may justly
clain, then, that we constittute the
state, yet we do not irovern it, nor are
the laws administerell in our interests,
and few are passed for our benefit.
We pay taxes and vote and there is
no further use for us. These taxes do
not grw any less, while our ability to
pay them grows smaller year by year,
and nothing worth naming has been
done to foster and encourage that in
terest which feeds and sustains all
others. The negroes used to be the
"mudsills" of our economic fabric;
but thousands of white men-land
owning farmers-finid themselves low
ly but surely sinking beneath the
waves to be added to the foundation
upon which a few :nen and corpora
tions are erecting their fortunes. tIn
peding bankruptcy stares thousands
in the face, while other thousands are
overseeing their own plantations for
their victuals and clothes.
An insane system of farming large-ly
prevails and our lands are growing
poorer year by year. Large areas of
South Carolina are .being made a
desert to feed negroes, while the land
owners, giving no thought to the
future of themselves and children,
stand idly by, or assist and dir-ect this
skimming of a State, which, by reason
of soil, climate andi geographical posi
tion, mig-ht be made a veritable Gar
den of Eden. The negroes will "go
West" went the bones are pickt d.
What will we do? We are "farming
towards despair" in thus continuing to
impoverish our lands by ignorant cul
ture, but nothing is done by our Leg
islature, or its creatures, to stop it, or
to try to teach the people a better and
wiser system. Forty thousand dollars
are spe'nt annually in the State, three
fourths of it spent by Iarmers, to edu
cate men for other professions and
pursuits; the farmers get nothing, and
are left to grope their way tawar-ds the
grave in ignorance and its consequent
poverty. Even the pittance donated
to educate farmers by the United .States
Government is taken from us and ap
propriated to sustain the institution at
which our future masters are being
trained. How thankful we should be
to the good Lord for such generosity
and wisdom among our statesmen, so.
Apmai, we pay $25,000 annually by
specific tax, which comes out of the
farmer alone, to sustain a department
of agriculture. A good slice of this is
spent to collect the phosphate royalty,
which goes to support the State Gov
ernment, and the rest is frittered and
wasted, so fat- as we can see, the only
benefit received by the farmetrs. being
a partial protection againist fraudulet
A majotilty of the board of agricul
ture are not engaged in farming. Who
wonders, then, that so little has been
done by it to benefit our tarming in
Four bad crops out of five and the
consequent poverty of our farmer-s cr-y

taxes. But this cry, which came from
every county, was ignored by the last

majority should govern, organize as
rartners and obliterate this line torever.

A Deadly Draught.
Tuesday afternoon about eighty in
mates of the almnshou-e at Lebanon,
Pa., were seiz.ed with vmtiitng andt
evere pains. Dr. Weiss, the attend
ing physician, was hastily summoned
mnd at once pronoutnced it a c sz' of
wholesale poiso ningi. Measu res werec
promptly taken to counmteract the poio
on. M1ost of the victims suflered
everely from nausea, antd twelve o!
them are in a critical cotndition. An
investigation revealed the fact iha a;
who drank of the coffee prepared for
ruesday's noon meal were sick, and
the doctor 8001n found the coliec pyt
lined with a thick sediment of puit
~reen. The vessel holds a barre! or
more, and into this some person ht:!d
brown almost four pounds of1 11is5.
Dr. Weiss is of the opinion that had it
aot beetn that the poison was too)
~trong, causing inlstant vomititng, mor1 Ie
han half the itnmates of the almshou-e
would now be dead.
