THE MANNIG TIMES.
Max~Z1 rg, l3.0.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, October 17,1888.
Charleston is to have a "Bandana parade"
daring gala week.
There has been a considerable stir in
Charleston county politics for the last three
months, and a desperate effort was made to
break the backbone of the Dawson faction of
the Democratic party, but the convention
met last Friday, and "Ring Rule," so called,
and "Dawsonism" triumphed. Eight law
yers, a farmer, a merchant, and two mechan
ic were elected to the legislature.
The Republicans will make a desperate
Ight to capture the 2nd and 7th congres
sional districts of our State in the coming
election. They have nominated S. E.
Samith, of Aiken, to oppose Col.Geo. D. Till
man, and Thomas E. Miller, of Beaufort, to
oppose Col. Elliott. 'T'heir National Cam
paign Committee has undoubtedly agreed
to furnish the "Boodle" and will send down
the "Bar' "if necessary. Let every Demo
srat, white and colored, in these two districts
rise to the emergency, and on the first Tues
day after the first Monday in November
next, crash the high tax hallucinations of
blood-thirsty monopolist into the very dust
as asr as Sooth Carolina is concerned by
voting for the regular Democratic nominees
.whether they be factional friends or foes.
Fred Douglass, the most influential negro
in the United States, has penned a strong
letter appealing to his race to vote for Har
risen and Morton at the coming election.
"It's the hit dog that yelps," but the yelp is
not as loud as the lick was hard when the
great leader witnessed the stampede in his
ranks four years ago, and saw the Southern
wing of his flock vote for Mr. Cleveland.
He bit his lips and held his peace a long
time, only that the howl might be oppor
tune when it came; but the negroes of the
loath will tura a deaf ear upon him, hay
ing nothing to regret for joining hands
with their Southern white fellow-citizens,
whose material prosperity is coequal with
their own-the one dependent on the oth
er. They will never sacrifice theirinterests,
nor barter theirrightsagain, by paying tnb
ute to the same old party that inveigled
them with the promises of "10 acres and a
mule," and would now stifle their prosperity
with the delusive phantoms of a political
platform whose broadest plank is high tax
es metamorphosed intoa "protective tariff."
They are fools no longer, and well do they
understand that to protect the manufac
taners is to increase the price of the identi
cal commodities they are obliged to con
same, and that without enhancing the val
es of the raw material produced by the
bardlabor and honest toil of their wives
and children. They know that under the
Republican administration of the Govern
ment a pound of calico cost them five
uounda of OttU; a pound of jeans, four
pounds of wool; and to the great disoom
Stare of their chaing ex-bosses, they know

New let every white man exert himself in
imessing upon them the necessity of
"a tariff for revenue only"-the platform

The State Press Rot an Ecbo.
The Gaarleston &is, which by the way is
esse our beat esteemed ehnges, has
ug ade a change of editors, and this
teN r. 1. H. Moore ably fills the editorial
ehair. We would have noted this before,
'h@o'ing to unanticipated business duties,
We have been, during the present month,
eteet from our office most of the time, and
3e'ami has consequently been in other
Jaside. The get up of the TDins this week
is iely that of another than the regular
edibs. So much as anexcuse forfiing to
aots s insportant a newspaper change.
We ifufr fran the editorials in the few
espies we haveread sine Mr. Moore took
aerg that he is a brilliant and taonted
-.n mn on his first daily paper. He is
ggressve in spirit and thought, endeavor
imo to hew to the line. But we humbly beg
leave to stale to Mr. Moore that when he
ebages the country press ofthisState as be
ing mere echoes of the Ketos anid COmrie, or
et any other paper, that he knows not of
the stuff that Caroliha editors are made.
Some few are cringing in their course; oth
era make it a rule to try to oppose anything
in the Ke,,s and Courer: most of them, how
ever, use their own brains and views.
Speaking for ourself we admire Capt. Daw
son's piaper, and his views and positions in
te inain. Somethings about him and his
paper we do niot like-. But taking all things
into consideration, we candidly consider
trapt.Dawson one of the-greatest and most
mseful men in the State; and in giving ex
pression to this sentiment we do not believe
that eur fellow citizens regard us as cring
ing in sar conduct,. or cowardly in our ac
Liansor editesial writings.
We write this article because we do not
remember of anything in our paper, rela
tive one way or the other to the recent
municipal election; and for this reason we
feel at liberty the better to take-up- for our
contry brothers. It is our opinion, and
we presume the press and people- of
the State will agree with us, that- if
the &m and the World were each to
devote their editorial columns more
to correcting evil measures- than to de
nouncing the ewos and Courr that their
influence would be stronger. The Yetos and
etiir throughout this State is es
tablished, and is likely to- remain so,
regardless of (and with the assist
ae of) anti N. and C, papers. We'
helieveoit is the custom of the ewos and
Gtasier never to notice regular and syste
uatie attaokson its editors. Were it toad
rertise the Swi and the World, as those pa
pers do the eos and Courier, it would very
shortly largely increase the subscriptions
of both those papers
Now, this article is not written for the
purpose of offending,.or in a controversial
spirit, but simply to deny an allegation
that we consider libelous on the State press.
The Greenville ewos and Chester Reporter
are excepted by the $Sa from this charge of
being bair echoes of tha Newos and CGsrer.
John S. Wilson, Esq.
John S. Wilson, Esq., our townsman, af
ter a protracted contest, was nominated by
the Judicial Convention at its closing ses
sion held at Sumter last Friday, to the
office of Solicitor of the Third Judicial Cir
cnit, for the ensuing term of four years.
T. M. Gilland, Esq., the incumbent, and
J. J. Dargan, Esq., of Sumter, who has also
been solicitor of the circuit, were contest
ants. These two last named gentlemen are
widely and favorably known for forensic
talent and high attainments. Of the three
candidates Mr. Wilson was the youngest,
and his professional engagements have
been confined to Clarendon county. Un
der the circumstances his nomination by a
body of intelligent, representative gentle
men made up from the tour counties-Sum
ter, Clarendon, Williamsburg, and George
town-is a high compliment. We recognize
the worth, the faithful services, and the
marked abilities and fidelity which charac
terized the administration of the office by
both Mr. Gilland and Mr. Dargan, and
without intending to detract in the least
from the commendations due to them we
voice a strong rentiment in saying that the
judicial convention acted wisely in nominat
ing Mr. Wilion. It is the first time since
the creation of the Third Judicial Circuit
that the position has been awarded to Clar
endon. 'It is the first time that Clarendon
has asked for it. Each of the other coun
ties, and Williamsburg more than once, have
successfully laid claim to the office. In pre
senting Mr. Wilson the two factions in
Clarendon county, with a marked cordialty
never before evinced, were united. In
placing in nomination they offered to Wil
liamsburg one of her native born; and to
Georgetown one worthy of her support.
Mr. Wilson was born in Wilhamsburg
county, near the historic Black Mingo. He
is the grandson on his paternal side of Col.
D. D. Wilson, deceased, who was an honor
ed Senator, in ante be.um days, of Williams
burg District; and on his maternal side, a
grandson of Capt. S. J. Snowden. deceased,
who was a wealthy planter of the Indian
When quite a youth Mr. Wilson came to
Manning, and entered the school of Mr. J.
Witherspoon Ervin,well known as a fine
teacher and scholarly gentleman. After
studying in this school for several years he
went to York, and entered the school of
Rev. R. Lathan, D. D., where he pursued
his studies for two terms. Returning to
Manning he entered the law office of Mr. B.
Pressley Barron, and applied himself close
ly to the study of law and the practical
work of the office for two years, and then
upon examination before the Supreme
Court in May 1881, was admitted to the Bar.
After his admission he became associated
with Mr. Barron, and afterwards was asso
ciated for one year with Hon. J. F. Rhame.
Since then Mr. Wilson has pursued success
fully his profession. He has for a series of
years been the clerk of the Town Council,
and now holds that position. He was ap
pointed Trial Justice for Manning four
years ago. and now holds that position. In
these several official positions his duties
have been faithfully performed; and his
urbanity, patience, and thoughtfulness have
won for him many friends. Mr. Wilson is
an earnest, forcible, impressive speaker, a
gentleman of high order of talents; a suo
cessful lawyer, and a public man of large

The Deadlock Dissolved.
John S. Wilson Nominated for Solicitor
of the Third Circuit.
SUrrza, Oct. 13.-Late yesterday after
noon, just before the convention adjourned,
a committee of two from each county were
appointed to settle upon some plan to solve
the deadlock. The convention agreed be
foreadjourning to abide by the result of
this committee's action.
The sub-committees met about 7 o'clock
and agreed before propositions were made
to abide by the decision of the majority of
the committee. In this session of the com
mittee the following resolutions were pro
posed and adopted:
L. That this con'vention resolve itself into
a committee of the whole with closed doors.
II. That first, Mr. Gilland be pittied
against Mr. Dargan and voted for. Second
that Mr. Gilland be pittied against Mr.
Wilson and voted for. Third. that Mr.
Dargan be pittied against Mr. Wilson and
fI. That the vote be taken by secret bal
lot and that each couple be voted for in a
IV. That the result of each vote be kept
secret 'mtil all the votes are taken.
V. That each delegate be sworn to vote
for one of the two candidates as if the third
were out of the field.
VI. That each delegate be further sworn
not to allow his vote to be seen or known
by any oth'i- del'agate until the entire vote
is counted and the result announced.
VHI. That each delegate endorse his name
on the back of his ballot.
VHII. That the two condidates receiving
the highest number of votes be the only
two candidates to be voted for before the
II. That each delegate be sworn as fol-'
lows: That I solemnly swear that I will'
vote for my choice of one of the two candi
dates pittied against each other as if the
third were out of the field, and I further
swear not to allow my vote to be seen or
known by any other delegate until the en.
tire vets is counted and the result an
nounced. Ho help me God.
X. That a notary public be called in to
administer the oath.
The committee from Sumter, and Mr.
Gordon, from Williamsburg, voted aegainst
these resolutions. The other member of
the committee, Mr. Williams. from Williams.
burg, was strongly in favor of them. They
were carried by a Tote of 5 to 3. Mr. Wil
hams is a new member of the Williamsburg
When the chairman of this committee re
ported on the reassembling of the conven
tion, these resolutions were read and dis
cussed considerably, and with a great deal
of opposition from Williamsburg. Mr. Gor
don who was opposed to the resolutions in
the committee room, now voted for them
along with Mr. Williams, when the motion
was made to cidopt them. The Sumter de!
egates were opposed 5o these resolutions at
Georgetown and other places when such
resolutions were made, but when the con
vertion agreed to accept any propositions
that may be made by the sub-committees,
they voted to adopt them.
The ballots in the first box stood Dargan
14, Gilland 16; second box, Gilland 12, Wil
son 18; third box, Dargan 11, Wilson 19.
Total result, Wilson 37, Gilland 28, Dargan
2. In this third box, between Wilson and
Drgan, it was svident that seven of the Gil
land delegation voted for Wilson, and one
for D'argan. This result knocked Dargan
'out in the first race, and it now lay between
Wilson and Gilland.
It was well known that before this conven
tion met at Sumter, Gilland was the second
choice of enough Sumter's delegates to elect
him. But the result of the third box proba
bly caused Sumter to see how the Williams
burg delegates had voted, and so when Wil
son ran against Gillandi, Sumter gave Wilson
her solid support.
.When the result of the last race was an
nounced there were hurrahs and cheering
for Wilson, and he was afterwards escorted
to the hall and responded in brief but hap
py terms. L. S. C.

acurred at Bishopville yesterday. A little
daughter of M. David E. Durant, while
playing at the house of Mr. T. P. Kigore,

the edge of a trundle bed, which broke her
neck, death being almost instantaneous.
Her sister, only 13!years old, was so shock
ed by the accident that she died this morn
ing from the effects. The mother and eld

Laurens's Land Sinks.
LAUnzisv!LL, Oct. 9.-Considerable ex
citement prevails in the lower section of
this county on account of the discovery of
a rather peculiar phenomenon. It seems
that about two acres of land have apparent.
ly dropped about four feet, which varied to
six inches. Tnis ground is covered with
bushes, which are turned and twisted con.
siderably. The falling in seems to have oc.
curred several days ago, and owing to the
distance from the highway was not discov
ered sooner. Water and sand issue from a
large crack in the sunken ground, the water
having a milky sediment. This water ran
down a trench some twenty feet distant,
and killed all the vegetation which it touch.
ed. One man reported the smell of sulphur
soon after he visited the place. The sunk.
en ground is on the side of a very steep hil
