The State Democratic Executive
Committee will meet in Columbia
The Pavilion hotel in Charleston
was closed up by the sheriff last week.
Mr. Gaillard, the proprietor, at once
obtained another house, and has open
ed the "New Pavilion."
The Anti-Tillman farmers meet in
Columbia to-day. Maj. C. S. Land
represents Clarendon; Col. J. J. Dar

angeburg. They meet to devise plans
for securing speakers to oppose Till
man in his canvass for governor.
A Wisconsin cort has been trying
a case in which a clergyman is charged
with getting $225 for an unsound
horse worth not $100. Doubtless this
clergyman is a good and worthy man
in all other respects, but in swapping
horses it is mighty hard work not to
retain some traces of the old Adam.
The political mills of persecution
J- have already begun to grind in this

counties, the Democratic supervisors
of registration have been arrested on
a cbarge of failing to have the regis

of April, to allow voters to register.

The Alliance and Politics.
~.About two years ago the Alliance
> rat made its appearance in York
5 onnty, and like almost every other
niton its aims and objects were
ghyand exhaustively scruti
nized by our people-endoised by.
s ome., criticised by others.
It rapidly gained friends until now
7the order has extended, and its influ
ence felt, in every nook and corner of
t he county. Those who criticised and
called it a political organization, in
augurated for the purpose of creating
---politica revolution, have been most
Strietly adhering to its purpose as
set forth in its constitution, and steer
ing clear of the breakers upon which
other organizations have been wreck
ad, it has been a power for good to
It has not only enabled our farmers
to purchase their goods andasupplies
Sata lower rate than heretofore, but
h- as created asystem of economy which
baa challenged the admiration of all
caun This is not all; it waged in
itsacomparative infancy a gallant war
against a powerful corporation backed
b)y millions of capital, and taught the
jute trust that money could avail
nothing against the united efforts and
-actions of a sturdy citizenship.
It has made our people more inde
pedent and taught them lessons of
frugality and industry which will not
soon be forgotten. Counting in its
~ranks an intelligent membership, its
naefniness has just now begun, and
Sgreater things will in the future bej
It is just such an organization asj
wohild likely excite the criticism of
the trained and professional politician,f
~nd has hence received its share in
We confess we have no apprehen
sions. The men who constitute the
membership are men of the right
*stamp and character, and are num
bered with the true and faithful who
snatched our government from the
hands of political adventurers and
thieves in 1876, and who, since that
me, have contributed to the prosper
~ity and welfare of the State.
They have not lost their place in
society and their right to be heard in
the councils of State. They now have
the same rights which they previously
held as individuals, and are inspired
with the same devotion to our county,
State, and nation. Membership in
the Alliance cannot and should not
deprive one from expressing an opin
ion on any and every subject, and no
one should hold up such an opinion
-as being the opinion of the order.
They should be free from the fling,
"the Alliance is drifting into politics,"
which is heard so often in different
-sections of the State.
They, as individuals, have the same)
rightto express a political opinion that
the merchant, lawyer, or any one else
has, and are not the subjects of criti
cism for expressing the same.
The poitical campaign of the pres
ent year promises to be one of unus
ual interest and every individual has
a duty to perform in contributing his
share to place the government in safe
and proper hands. We feel sure that
we can also say of our people whoj
ar io members, what we have no
hesitation in saying of the Alliance,
that when duty calls the farmers ol
York will be found in the front ranli
supporting men who are pledged t(
faithfully serve the people as publi
servants, whether they be members o:
the order or not.

A Lady's Reason for no. Dancing.
1. Dancing would lead me into crowdec
rooms and late hours, which are injuriou
to health and happiness.
2. Dancing will lead me into very closE
contact with pernicious caspany; and evi
communications corrupt good munners.
3. Dancing would require me to use anc
permit freedom with the other sex, of whici
I should be ashamed, and which I believt
to be wrong.
4. My parents and friends would bi
anxious about me if I were out late, keep
ing company with they know not whom.
5. Ministers and good people generalli
disapprove of dancing, and I think it no
safe to set myself up against them. If
thing be even doubtful I wish to be on thE
6. Dancing has a bad name, and I mear
to study things that ore pure and lovell
and of good report.
7. Danceng is generally accompanici

8. Iaz tolesrnking isa 'very grea

A physician writing to a medical journa
says: "In a late issue of the Adt'ocate I no
ticed an article on 'Remedies for Snake Bite,
settng forth olive oil and ammonia as good
and safe remedies. As to the virtues of olivi
oil I know nothing as touching snake bites
Ammonia is good when you can get nothint
better, but I write this to say that tincture
of iodine is a specific in this trouble. I:
you can get it in time, apply in full strengtl
to the wound, and give the patient one t<
five drops In water every ten minutes, for
say an hour, or until improvement sets in
then lengthen out until an hour. Some fif
teen years ago I was called to treat a danger
os case of snake bite, where the whiskl
remedy had been faithfully tried and had
failed, and my patient was fearfully swoller
and appeared near dying.
"I gave the iodine in one drop doses every
five minutes, and was astonished to see the
prompt and rapid recovery. In twelve hours
the lady was able to resume her household
labors, and suffered no further inconveni

perhaps one dozen cases with this remedy,
using no other, and each case with the mosi
"Nine years ago this past summer a white
lad, whilst plowing for me, was bitten on
his ankle by a ground rattler. I was fromt
home, and did not see him for three or four
hours after the occurence. When I did see
him the limb was badly swollen up to the
knee, and he was in great suffering. To<:
late to make an outward application, I pui
ten drops of iodine in as many teaspoont
of water, and gave him a teaspoonfull oi
this mixture every five minutes for a fe's
times, then lengthened out to thirty minutes,
I gave him about twenty drops in all, and
the next morning he resumed his plowins
without any inconvenience.
"Some years ago I happened at a friend's
house a few minutes after his dog had beer
bitten by a monstrous Florida rattlesnake,
and gave the dog iodine in five or six drol

A Panola Farier Talks on te Political
Editor Manning Time:-We have
been reading the News and Cuarier
for a good many years, and while we
never did admire its politics very
much, yei we are more disgusted now
than ever. It really seems that it, as
well as some lesser and insignificant
sheets, would like to rule the whole
State. We think these little editors
had better stop and consider who and
what they are trying to write about,
for we as farmers do not any longer
intend to sit down and be run over.
We have risen and propose to stand
up for our rights. In our last con
vention we made the suggestions of
Mr. B. R. Tillman and Col. Coit for
governor and lieutenant governor, and
we propose to see that these sugges
tions are endorsed by the regular
nominating convention in August; for
we are going there to do that very
We do not propose to submit to the
railing accusations made against us.
1 The News and Courier has as good as
accused the delegates to that Farm
ers' Convention of being no Demio
crats at all, and when it says that after
an eight bours' session the convention
nominated B. R. Tillman and J. C.
Coit for governor and lieutenant gov
ernor, and that the Denocrats could
fill out the rest of the ticket, we think
they had better learn something about
Capt. Tillman's general reputation be
fore they try to stab him with the in
famous imputation of being the man
to disrupt the Democratic party.
Where was Capt. Tillman in'76? Was
it not Gen. Gary, Butler, Tillman, and
others, who proposed to and did put
a straight -out ticket in the field, while
the News and Courier thought the
matter premature and unwise, and
suggested that a fusion ticket would
do best. We think we had better
learn to do honor to those who de
serve honor and not to those who are
willing to compromise either by fu
sion or otherwise. We will also call
the News and Courier's attention to
the sneering manner in which it
speaks of the doffing of hats in the
convention, in saying that one could
see from the tall spring dunlap down
to the plug hat of the plantation.
Well, but those plug hats covered the
heads of as true and loyal Democrats
as were ever raised in South Carolina.
They covered the heads of men that
are going to prove a little too many
for these ringsters, bosses, and those
old sore-headed politicians who pro
pose to have things their own way.
We hear that one of the managing
editors of the Nezws and Courier said
that he would rather the State would
go back into the hands of the Repub
licans or negroes than for Tillman
and his friends to get possession. If
this be true we guess we know the
reason why, for if it were to pass over
into the hands of the negroes they
could be cheated out of it, but if Till
man and his friends get possession
they will prove a little too sharp for
We suppose the News and Courier
thought that it had worked up a very
sharp trick when it distributed those
postal cards to gather in the senti
ments of the people for governor, but
how were they distributed ? We don't
think that one of those cards was sent
to a farmer in Clarendon; therefore,
how was it possible -to get a fair and
just expression from the masses of the
people ? But a fair expression was
not what was aimed at. The idea was
throw as much of a damper over the
country people as possible, but we
rather think they missed their aim.
We notice, also, that these newspa
pes are giving in their advice very
freely, as though it was solicited, ad
vising the farmers to be very careful
as to their proceedings, lest they split
the Democratic party. When we
want their advice we will call on them
for it, so hold it in reserve, for we
think we know what we are doing,
and we don't propose to be duped.
We know this much, at any rate, that
we represent at least '75 or 80 per
cent. of the voting strength, and that
gives us the right to rule and we will
do it; for we shall march up to Colum
ba with a sufficient force to carry our
The only place where we see that
there is any danger of a split in the
party is that when we make the nom
inations most of the newspaper edit
ors and all of the tricksters and all of
those sore-headed politicians who may
think there is no use to beg forgive
ness for their many sins will make the
We also call the attention of the
Columbia Register to a small matter.
It says, "with a whoop the Farmers'
Convention nominated Capt. Tillman."
We desire simply to say to the Regis
ir that with a whoop we farmers are
going to elect Capt. Tillman, too. We
intend to do another thing also, to
make all of those little newspapers
'feel the strength and power of the
farmers after this, and we will let
them see where their sopping in the
pan comes from.
We notice through the newspapers
that Mr. Coit has declined the off'er
made him by the convention: wvell,
that's all right; we guess there are
plenty of just as good men as Col.
Coit, and some perhaps better; and
Iwe know that when the farmers offer
him nominations after this he will
have learned how to appreciate coin
plients as well as honors. We guess
ve can put in another man that will
come better up to the standard that
we wish, anywvay.
We noticed a little squib in the
News and Courier, signed Old Guard.
We don't know who Old Guard is,
neither do we care to know, but it
seems that he would like to intimidate
somebody if he could, but we are not
the crowd to be intimidated. Now,
look here, fellows, this thing won't do;
vo fellow~s are making too much fuss:
ou must learn to be peaceable and
quiet. We farmers have been quiet
or a long time. Now give us a
chance, for you all have had a good
chance at the pickings for a long
time. Now give us a chance, and let
Ius see if there is any s:-raps left worth
Ihaving. We know it's hard, but you
fellows must not be so fussy, for we
are bound to mako the nomiinations
in August, let come what will.

A large portion of the stock law fence,
between Black and Santee rivers, was de
stroyed by forest fires last week.
Mr. R. 1H. Hurst lost 3,000 crossties by
tire last Saturday night. They were piled
on the bank of Black river ready for ship
ment. They were not burned by forest
fires, and it is not known how the tire orig.
inated. The loss is a heavy one.
The number of liens filed in the clerk's
office to Aprl 1st, 1890. is 019. The nia
ber filed to same date last year was 720. The
number of chattel mortgages, for $100 or
less, filed to April 1st, 1890, is 377. The
number filed to same date last year was 483.
The number of chattel mortgages for over
$100, filed to April 1st, 1890, is 24o. The
number of real estate mortgages filed to
April 1st, 1390, is 97.
The forest fires have done much destrue
tion in some parts of the county this spring.
Last week great loss was sustained by sev
eral parties living south of the Northeastern
railroad, between .Black and Santee rivers.
Mr. W. D. Bryan lost a quantity of cross
ties, a portion of his tramroad, besides hav
ing his timber badly injured. Mr. J. E.
iMcCullough lost nearly all his feneing; and
several negroes, whose names we have not
learned, lost their hous;es, provisions, etc.
One of thew had his horse burned to death
in the stable; the same man, after his dwell
ing house caught fire, went into it and took
out all the money he had, S2o or $25, and
put it into his coat pocket, and then got on
top of the house to fight the fire; his coat
caught tire, and his money and everything
else he possessed was destroyed. In the
neighborhood of Fowler postoffice much
damage resulted last week by forest fires in
the destruction of fences, etc. It was with
great difficulty that the houses of several
colored men were saved. We are requested
by them to express their gratitude to Messrs.
H. M. and T. M. Cooper for their assistance
in saving their property from the fire.

Best Thing He Ever Saw.
The following is an extract from a
letter written from Mr. D. A. Rey
I nolds, editor and proprietor of the
Herald, Lyons, Mich., under date of
January 11th, 1890: "You will ob
serve that I have given your adver
tisenent position on the first page of
the Iirald, while other proprietary
medicines have had to take the run
of the taper. The reason for doing
this is, that upon receiving your
"copy" a number of the cures effected
seemed similar to that of which my
little son was suffering, a case of
i blood poison, or irritable sores break
ing out all over his body. To-day he
is entirely free from disease, and one
bottle of Swift's Specific (S. S. S.) did
the work. Now this is the reason for
giving you The position, as I consider
Swift's Specific (S. S. S.) the best
medicine I ever saw. I wish you un
limited success in your business."
The above is a sample of letters
which are coming to us all the time.
S. S. S. is nearer infallible than any
remedy made, and has probably clone
more good than any medicine known

A Contagions Disease Spreading,
A very severe disease is ravaging
the country at present. It is especial
lv severe in some portions of Orange
burg county, and is very obnoxious
to all who bave not contracted it, but
the patient seems to rather enjoy the
sensations caused by the disease.
Our home physiciatns are quite reti
ent, but a learned doctor in Charles
ton pronounced it Tillmania, and has
already given tup the job of trying to
cure it. At last accounts it had as
smed the form of an epidemic, and
was spreading very rapidly. The
learned doctor in Charleston has
pretty strong symptoms, but it is
thought he may miss it by the as
sistance of "Old Guard" of the
board of health, who has called a coni
vention of doctors who wvill, nlo doubt,
adopt a strict system of disinfection
Iand quarantine. It is hoped, that if
the disease cannot be eradicated, it
can at least be checked before the hot
