WEDNESDAY, May 7, 1890.
Intolerance is begotten of bigotry,
and idle threats and evil insinuations,
carried so far as to savor strongly of
persecution, will in almost every in
stance rebound with greater force
upon the head of the persecutor. His
tory is full of such instances. The
early church thrived and rapidly
grew under the direst deeds of per
seention, and our own country would
probably to-day be under British rule
had it not been for the idea enter
tained in the English parliament that
our forefathers, and they were nearly
al rude farmers and mechanics, had
not the sense and decency to govern
themselves. Ridicule properly han
dled is always a powerful weapon; but
when ridicule is hurled at the honest
efforts of a set of honest men, and
their friends are held up in scorn and
derision as intolerant demagogues
simply because they think public af
fairs are not administered for their
best interests, and the cry of bolter,
simpleton, and such opprobious terms
is raised against these plain, simple,
honest, unsophisticated farmers, then
does the holy spark of true pride, no
ble ambition, and genuine manhood
burst forth into a mighty flame to
consume everything that retards its
No truer set of men ever breathed
the air of untrammelled liberty than
South Carolinians, and when duty
calls, or the.necessity in any way ex
ats, the farmers, the yeomanry of the
State, have never yet failed to step to
the front. These farmers have after
mature consideration deemed it ex
pedient that there be a change in
management, and that a new set of
- officers be appointed to conduct pub
e afairs. They consider the good
old State somewhat bilious, and think
a purgative necessary. They do not
believe this biliousness anything as
bad as it was in '76, but they do be
Hive in toning up the system in time,
and they are going to do it this year,
or the signs will prove very deceptive.
Had it not been for the abuse and
harsh criticism and ridicule heaped
upon the farmers, either directly or
,pon Tilmanand his friends, Ben
4-THlman would not have been sug
....geaed-at the March convention, but
when the farmers saw how matters
stood, and that an opinion seemed to
prevail that the only political duty of
as dictated to them, their undaunted
~spirit rebelled. They lost confidence
~in their old leaders, and sought for
new. Ben Tillmanj was suggested,
SwHi be nominated, and~then elected.
The farmers are not experienced in
political affairs, and are some times
misled, but they 'mean right, and as
soon~ as they discover their error they*
at once right about face. They de
eidad they needed a change, and de
\cision meant action. Had it not been
for the great amount of opposition
and ridicule and vituperationithat
~they'met with before and when they
Sgot to Columbia, it is very probable
~that no nomination would have been
~made till the regular August conven
tion, but goaded on by such they took
the bull by the horns, and Tillmnan
will be the next governor.
We see it suggested that Hampton
>be put in the field to defeat Tillman.
We do not believe that Hampton could
be induced to engage inso unpolitieca
sp. It would be a death blow to
9him. Tiliman has got ahold on the
people that it would be hard to break.
To use his own expression, it is a
brehshold, and it is not any and
governor than Tillman. If the farm
era want him, we say let them have
him. He will govern with discretion,
and the dignity and credit ofthe State
will not be impaired. When he shall
have overcome all opposition an~d
reached the governor's chair, we be
-lieve-he will lay aside all unkind feel
ings and harsh criticims, and govern
withhojiesty and justness.
Seven large and influential Demo
eeratic clubs in A bbeville county have
passed resolutions endorsing the Till
man platform and pledging them
sefves to support Captain B. R Till
man for governor. Among these was
the Due West club, wich also adopt
ed the following: "Besolved, That
we will not cast our votes for any
candidate, Federal or State, who will
not pledge himself to support the
atfrm of the March convention.
Ived, That we, Democratic farm
ers of "76, insist upon the farmers of
our State to see that B. R. Tillman is
made the Democratic nominee for
This campaign is going to be a fiery
one, but let us all leave out personali
ties. It grates harshly to hear such
expressions as, "No decent man would
support. Tillman," and such expres
sions will only tend to strengthen his
cause. We are all friends and neigh
bore living together, and don't allow
petty political feelings to burst asun
der the bonds of neighborly love and
friendship. Don't aecuse your neigh- i
bor of being a fool or an idiot be-I
cause he does not agree with you. It
is in the possibility of human events
that he may be right and you wrong.
Have charity for all. Keep cool

Talks With Clarendou Farmers.
There was quite a number of per- j
sons in town last Monday, and as it
had been whispered the week before
that an Anti-Tillman meeting would
be held in Manning last Monday a
C, I t
reporter of the TRs was on the look
out for the same. There was, how
ever, no public meeting but a good
deal of private caucusing that proba
bly amounted to the same thing. As
there were several representative men
from different sections of the county
we approached them for the purpose
of getting their views on crop pros
pects, politics, and the general state
of the county. Several declined to
talk politics, and some we failed to
see, but the following will show that
our county is in a healthy state, all
SALEM IS PROSPEROUS.
Mr. W. D. Gamble, a prominent
merchant and farmer of Salem, said,
"Cotton is up, with a good stand.
The corn prospect is very flattering.
The oat crop is short, almost a fail
ure. There has been no increase in the
number of liens, and our people are
getting on all right. I am not a mem
ber of the Alliance, but think it an
excellent institution if properly con
ducted-the best thing ever yet or
ganized especially for farmers. I have
heard but little of politics, but expect
we shall have a very heated campaign.
I do not know of any candidates. The
Tillman party is strong in Salem, and
a majority of our people will probably
SANTEE FAVORS TILLMAN.
Mr. R. F. Turner, of Brunson's
Cross Roads, said, "Crops, especially
cotton, are looking finer than for the
past three years. In politics the sen
timent is in favor of Tillman, and al
most every one in my neighborhood
THE FORK QUIET AND CONSERVATIVE. C
Mr. W. M. Youmans, has recently
built a large dwelling and had it C
painted, and has now one of the pret- f
tiest farms in the county. He makes 1
as good crops as any one in the Fork.
He said, "The Fork people are getting i
on quietly and peaceably. The Alli
ance is doing good by bringing the t
farmers together for conference and
by creating among them a kinder feel- t
ing for each other, but pecuniarily it a
has been of little advantage. Our a
people are holding their own. The
seasons have been fine and crop pros- I
pects are good. Oats are a failure. t
Much bacon was lost on account of I
the remarkably warm winter. Since L
the stock law was enacted the people
in my neighborhood have to buy a
good deal of bacon. There is very f
little talk of politics, and those with
whom I have talked do not favor Till
man. We propose to abide the re
sult of the regular convention."
PANOLA BC OMING.
Mr. S. P. Holladay, of Panola, was e
very busy registering a number of
voters. He says lie registered more
voters last Monday than any day
since he has been supervisor of regis
tration, most of whom were negroes.
He says that in his section crops are C
fine, seasons good, and best stands
for years. The farmers are thorough- I
ly up with their work. Much inter- '
est is manifested in politics, apd al
mst eserv one in his neighbdrhood 'l
is in favor of Tillmnan. No candi- a
dates in that section yet, except pos- C
sibly one for school commissioner. S
The Panola school is to have a picnic a
next Friday. There is some talk of
trying to get a penitentiary farm es- r
tablished in his midst. There is a e
body of land containing about 7,000 t
acres that could be had for this pur- 1
The Tnts proposes to give all sides ~
a hearing, and our readers may de- t
pend on an impartial account of the
news of the day.a
Rev. Dr. A. Coke Smith, of Wofford a
College, has been offered the position' s
of president of the Southwestern
University, at Georgzetown, Texas, i
with a salary of $2,500 per annum. n
Ben Tillman, Col. Youmans, and ~
Tom Woodward met at Ridgeway last t
Saturday, and had a very lively dis-iP
cussion, culminating almost in a row.j
We regret that we cannot publish aio
full account of it this week, but will I
try todo sonext week.
The unveiling of the Lee monument' c
in Richmond will take place May 29th.;
We have heard of several "veterans"
in Clarendon who propose to aten
and again view the ground where they C
sacrificed so much on their country's S
altar. Round trip tickets from Man- P
ning $12.85, good to return in two
weeks, and special rates are offered to v
parties of twenty-five. t
Gen. Edward McCrady, of Charles
ton, is in favor of a primary electiont
for the selection of candidates for all
positions including State offices, the l
elections to be held in every county r
in the State on the same day. He
thinks a convention ought to be held ~
at an early day for a t~iorough revis- ~
ion of the rules of election, so that V
in the coming campaign our people C
may be assured of a fair opportunity S
for the expression of their wishes up
on all points of discussion.
We attended the State Press Asso
ciation in Charleston last week, and a
had an exceedingly pleasant time.
The address of Henry Watterson, ed- t
itor of the Louisville Courier-Journal,
was very fise, and we regret that our
space forbids its reproduction in the Ii
Tnra. The banquet was one of the a
finest ever had in the State. About ~
two hundred persons attended, and ti
each plate is said to have cost ten t<
dollars. Chai leston did evrtigt
in her power to make the Press men
have a nice time, and she succeeded. j
Especially is the Association under s
obligations to Maj. Hemphill and Capt.
Weber, of the Neus and Courier, who
were untiring in their effoits. Capt.
Weber was as kind and thoughtful to h
every member of the Association as a
young man is to the first lovely girl
on whom he lavish~es his love. The
Association was in session three days, w
and much business was done. George- P
iown was selected as the next place of
meeting. Friday an excursion was
made to Summerville and to the
phosphate works. An elegant lunch
was spread in the Hotel Dorchester at
Summervile. This hotel is not quite
nished yet, but will be one of the
landsomest structures in the State.

South Carolina has again been disgracal,
ven far more so than a few months ago in
he B3arnwell butelipry. L.exington waw last
(unday night the scene of one of the most
eliberate and disgraceful acts that has ever
lurred the fair name of our State. Our
eaders will remember that some time back,
Villie Leaphart, a mulatto, was convicted
f criminally assaulting a young white wo
an of Lexington, and was sentenced to be
anged. The day before the execution Gov
rnor Richardson, after conferring with
udge Wallace, respited Leaphart for a few
eeks, and fearing that a lynching would
esult had Leaphart secretly removed to
lbe Columbia jail. The Lexington people
pon finding that Leaphart was respited
ud had been taken to Columbia, became
xceeding wrathful, and held an indigna
ion meeting in which they greatly abused
overnor Richardson and Judge Wallace.
hey appointed a committee to wait on
ese two gentlemen, and try to get Leap
art back in Lexington jail. Finally upon
he written pledge of honor of fourteen of
,exington's most prominent citizens that
0o harm should befall Leaphart, and upon
he recommendation of Judge Wallace to re
urn Leaphart to Lexington, the Governor
;sned an order to reconvey him to Lexing
Aye, low indeed must be the stand
rd of honor in Lexirgton! Governor
tichardson and Judge Wallace each advised
gainst the publication of the affidavit on
-hich the respite was based, but these Lex
ngton people clamored for it and clamored
Dr Leaphart's life bloed, no nu=tter what
he affidavit contained !
Last Sunday night a score or more
orced the jail and assassinated their victim.
To-day the Governor has given to the
iublic the affidavits on which the respite
One is from W. J. Miller in which he de
lares that he had seen letters from the
oung woman, Rosa Cannon, in which she
tated L2aphart had committed no ontrage
a her person, but had simply seized her
)r the purpose of trying to get her to give
im money, and that she did not believe
he negro meant to do any violence to her
erson; that none of her family believes
at he attempted to commit any outrage;
nd none of her kin people attended the
rial; that the young woman is a strong girl
bout eighteen years old, and the negro
ould not have forced her if he wished;
at he is well acquainted with Rosa Can
on; and that he is informed that her char
eter for virtue is not good.
Another affidavit from Charlie Cannon, a
rother of Miss Rosa Cannon, says that he
ad a private talk with his sister shortly af
-r the alleged crime, and that she told
im she was not injured in any way and
bat she did not believe it was Leaphart's
atention to do her any harm, but that she
ought it was his intention to rob the
ouse or to get money. He further testi
ed that his sister would never have sworn
ainst Leaphart had not Sim Corley, with
hose family she was staying, persuaded
er to do so.
Two letters from Miss Cannon to her
other state that Leaphart did not assault I
er and that she does not believe he intend
( to do so, but simply wanted money.
he also states that she does not really
:now who the party was that seiaed her.
Clearly then the young woman herself
ad her father and brother did not believe
be negro guilty, yet this Lexington mob,
a spite of pledge of honor, thought anid de
ided that the negro must die.
Leaphart made a desperate fight for life.
[e seized a stick, and five of his assailants
~ere cracked across the head before a ball
enetrated his skull and he lay a corpse.
~hen he was hauled out into the jail pas
ge, and his body riddled with bullets.
f course the breaking into the jail was the
me old story: the jail door broken open,
nd the keys taken from the sheriff.
After the assassination, the lynchers the
ext day made little effort to conceal their
annetion with the affair. In fact some of
bem bragged about and claimed responsi
ility for the deed.
The Solicitor was present at the coroner's
:iquest, and developed the fact that certain
f the lynchers had been recognized, and
tat one person had said publicly on the
treet that he had assisted in the lynching
ad was responsible for it. Yet in spite of
11 this, to the utter astonishment of the
licitor, the jury rendered a verdict of
death by gun shot wounds inflicted by un-I
nown parties." Never more did a set of
ien perjure themselves. But not more so

The mob was after blood. It is said the
itention was to hang Leaphart in the yard
j his lawyer, G. Tf. Graham, but Leaiphari's
urdy fight and his assassination in the jail
revented this. They threatened Graham

Tribute of Respect.
At our regnlar monthly meeting of Trin

1890, a committee of three was appointed, e
consisting of Brothers J. H. McKnight, T. r
I. Cole, and P. C. Cochran, to prepare a trib- b
ute of respect to the memory of our beloved }
sister, Mrs. Sarah L. . Lesesne, who de
parted this life on Tuesday, 23d April A. D.

"In the midst of life we are iN death."
How painfully and forcibly have we realized C

no more. Her seat is vacant, her voice for

tomb, and her spirit we trust basking in the
sunshine of an eterral day; therefore be it
