TE MANNIG TIMES.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, August 29,1888.
We always advocate pure morals,
and-we hope never to be found at
tempting to palliate any official mis
conduct; we love-to see in our public i
men deeds of nobleness and honesty: i
but we at the same time, desire to I
enter our solemn protest against any I
underhanded, low, mud-be-sliming,
calumny and aspersions. Some con
temptible slings have been made
recently at Governor Richardson, on
mere rumor. If the charges are so,
then let them be made and sustained,
and no paper in the State will be
louder in demanding his resignation
than the Tmss; but the dignity of the
Governor of the State demands that 1
idle charges should not be made
against bita. Governor Richardson's
fiends have either denied or refuted
every charge made against him.
NO DARK HORSES.
There is some talk throughout the
State of other candidates for the gov
ernorship than Gov. Richardson. We
don't see how, after the conditions
kid down by the last State conven
tion, any honorable man could be
come a candidate, or how the conven
tion could consistently allow another
xame to be proposed. The condi- 1
tions were that all candidates for the i
offic aoul attend the public meet- I
ing and give their views to the peo
ple. Governor Richardson only ap
peared and hisshould in consequence i
be the only name before the conven
tion. The following from the Fair
field Newo and Herald is a sensible ar
tide in point:
hbe State canvass was inaugurated solely
e the purpose of bringing before the peo
Plk those candidates who desired their

or Bichardson is the only man who has

sbown him to be a man in whom the

the State, and should any other candidate :

Beware of Division.
It cannot be denied that there is a ten
ency toward a division of the white people
n this State on questions that are not of
ital importance. If such a division should
e clearly effected, and opposing factions
et to contending with each other, the
robability is that it would lead to great
ocial demoralization, as did the prohibi
ion contest in Atlanta, when the "white
md colored ladies' held joint meetings in
white church, and when ladies of high
tanding buttonholed negroes at the polls
Lnd solicited their sufrage. We would

would never come to this, but we have the
ct before us that the people of Atlanta did

nly separated by a very narrow stream.
)ur people should beware of all dividing
luestions, for family quarrels are the hard
:st to heal, and they might bring upon us
omething more to be dreaded than the un
riendly rule of aliens.
The Political Outlook.
[Swer Watchman and Southron.]
Trhe manifest unrest prevalent all over
he State is sufficient to cause serious ap
>rehension as to the situation two years
tence if not now. Tillmanism, as it is
alled, is less what it is named than an un
rmed protest against existing political
ethods,. The movement is now rapidly
rystalizing around extravagance in expen
Liture as a centre, and the evident feeling
xists that these should be reduced. Just
in this point we would suggest as a fact
hat has been overlooked in the geneial
alculation as to the causes of an increase
taxation, that it is largely due to the im
nnse sums of money voted by several of
he counties to railroads. Eminently is
his the fact in Edgefield, Pickens, Green
rille, Spartanburg, and some other coun
ies. The tax levied to pay the interest an
ually on the bonds voted in favor of rail
oads, has in some cases more than doubled
he ordinary county tax levy for all pur
>oses, including the school tax, and the
ncrease in the value of real estate and gen
ml taxable property has, as yet, been in
fficient to meet public expectation, or
ower, appreciably, the rate of taxation.
Chis is one thing to be considered in refer
ae to the general subject.
But there is mo're. Men desirous of of
Lee, will see in the existing~ situation an
pprtunty to "make their Jack," and they
viihead a movement with most plausible
~round to support it, to upset the present
eime and institute an era of reform and
conomy. To effect their ends, would they
mesitate to use such means as will enable
hem to manipulate the colored vote, if by
o doing they could ride into power ? The
istoy of polities warrants us in doubting
ifthey would. But if this is done, what is
here to prevent the colored voting element
ro again looming up as an important po
itical factor? They would then hold the
>alance of power, and if organized, could
amost dictate their own terms ; beca~use
ith the white vote no mere solid but li
lno more united but divided, the
brewd former leaders of the old Republi
anparty in this State, would see and avail
heselves of the chance thus offered, and
we would have great trouble on our hands.
t is undoubtedly a fact that our safety, po
tially, is dependent on our unity and
olidity. Anything that tends to impair
hat, is fraught with danger and disaster to
mur political future, in our judgment. We
hould consider whether in such a case, it
a not "better to bear the ills we have, than
y to others we know not of?" Whether it
would be better for us to endure the few
mud minor ills of the situation, and remain
mited, than to divide and let in the whole
rood of evils that would result therefromn?
ur pcople should not suffer themselves to
orget these plain facts and possibilities
their estimate of the political outlook.
rhey have a great deal at stake, and they
anniot afford to quarrel it away. When, if
ver. such division occurs in our ranks,
~he door is then wide open to designing
lemagogues and hungry office seekers to
:me in and foment the discord until what
was a mere rift becomes a hopeless and im
passable gulf. Our gloomy forebodings we
iope will never materialize, but we fancy
we see already the signs of coming trouble,
md wish to anticipate it. "Forewarned is
orearmed." We should sometimes, if not
lways, discuss issues, not men, and aspire
a be statesmen rather than successful poli

Ku-Klux In Williamsburg.
The vicinity of Scranton, Williamsburg
ounty, is in a state of great excitement
ver a recent genuine ku-klux attempt to in
timidate one of the most promising men of
the town. The man in question is Mr. T.
D. Willoughby, one of the largest lumber
anufacturers in that section of the State.
11r. Willoughby is a prominent advocate of
bemprance, and about two years ago, when
Lie establishei his present business, he be
pan a crusad.. against whisky, which ended
in the town being declared dry. This cx
yited the ire of the liquor element, and a
band, it seems, was organized to break up
his business and force him to leave the
;own. The first steps towards this end
were taken about a month ago, when Wil
loughby's master mechanic, a negro, was
ttacked one night by a mob, who, after
beating him badly, shot him twice, not se
riously, however, and ran him out of town.
The mob then went to Willoughby's
ouse, where his wife lay ill, created a
reat disturbance, firing off guns and pis
ols, and calling for Willoughby in very
breatening tones. Willoughby recognized
;everal of them as the most prominent citi
rens of the town, and he promptly had
warrants sworn out against them, and a few
lays ago the whole town was thrown into
mxcitement by their arrest. The result of
the preliminary examination before Trial
Fustice McCutcheon was that A. B. Newton,

The most approved text booics are used. The blackboard is deemed an
essential in the class room. The neining of an author is invariably required
of each pupil. In all work done, in whatever department, and whatever the
extent of ground covered, our motto shall always be THoBouGmass. To this
end, we shall require that every lesson be learned, if not in time for the class
recitation, then elsewhere. No real progress can be made so long as the
pupil is allowed to go on from day to day reciting only half-perfect lessons.

satisfy. The eyes are sunken,
the hands and feet become cold
and clammy. After a while a
cough sets in, at first dry, but
after a few months it is attend
ed with a greenish-colored ex
pectoration. The patient feels
tired all the while, and sleep
does not seem to afford any
rest After a time he becomes
nervous, irritable and gloomy,
and has evil forebodings. There
is a giddiness, a sort of whirl
ing sensation in the head when
rismg up suddenly. The bow
els become costive; the skin is
dry and hot at times; the blood
becomes thick and stagnant;
the whites of the eyes become
tinged with yellow; the urine
is scanty and high colored, de
positing 'a sediment after stand
in.There is frequently a
spitting up of the food, some
times with a sour taste and
sometimes with a sweetish
taste; this is frequently at
tended with palpitation of the
heart; the vision becomes im
paired, with spots before the
eyes; there is a feeling of great
prostration and weakness. All
of these symptoms are in turn
present. It is thought that
nearly one-third of our popu
lation has this disease in some
of its varied forms.
It has been found that phy
sicians have mistaken the cause
of this disease. Some have
treated it for a liver complaint,
others for kidney disease, etc.,
etc., but none of these kinds of
treatment have been attended
with success; for it is really
constipation and dysp sia. It
is also found that Sh er Ex
tract of Roots, or Mother Sei
gel's Curative Syrup, when
properly prepared will remove
this disease in all its stages.
Care must be taken, however,
to secure the genuine article.
IT WILL sELL BETTFER THAN
Mr. John C. Hemptinstall,
of Chulafrmee, Cleburn Co.,
Ala., writes: "My wife has
been so much benefited by
Shaker Extract of Roots or
Seigel's Syrup that she says
she would rather be without
part of her food than without
the medicine. It has done her
more good than the doctors and
all other medicines puttogether.
I would ride twenty miles to
get it into the hands of any suf
ferer if he can get it in no other
way. I believe it willsoonsellin
this State better than cotton. .
TESTIMONY FROE TExAS.'
Mrs. S.E. Barton, of Varner,
Ripley Co., Mo., writes that
she had beenlong aflicted with
dyspepsia and disease of the
urinary organs and was cured
by Shaker Extract of Roots.
Rev. J. J. McGuire, merchant,
of the same place, who sold
Mrs. Barton the medicine, says
he has sold it for four years
and never knew it to fail.
sHE WAs ALMOST DEAD)
I was so low with dyspep
sia that there was not a phy
sician to be found who could
do anything with me. I had
futtering of the heart and
swimming of the head. One
day I read your pamphlet called
"Lfe Amwng the Skakers,"
which described my disease
better than I. could myself. I
tried the Shaker Extract of
Roots and kept on with it until
toay I rejoice in good health.
