WEDNESDAY, Je 4, 1890.
No steps have yet been taken to
build the branch railroad to the C. S.
&N. line. What is the matter? Can
not our people be roused from their
lethargic state? Have we no regard
for our interests? Are we going to
let Sumter and Charleston take from
us all our legitimate trade? We must
do something and do it at once. There
is great need that we make haste in
DOWN WITH TILLMAN!
This is the slogan of the opponents
of Ben Tillman, and no stone will be
left unturned to effect this end. Nu
merous methods have been tried, and
now it looks as if a combined effort
will be made, to get discord and dis
union among his supporters. Candi
dates will be put forth in the differ
ent counties, as many as can be
brought out, the purpose being to
get the people to support the home
candidate against Ben Tillman. Then
when the State convention meets, all
these aelegates who have been elected
for Anti-Tilman candidates, together
'ith such bLack sheep as have slipped
into the Tillman fold, will combine on
some one or any one of the numerous
Anti-Tinman candidates, and the mat
ter is done! Tillman is defeated and
the work of the farmers' movement
We throw out this suggestion sim
ply that the farmers may have their
eyes open. Some of the candidates
spoken of we believe are better fitted
for the duties of the gubernatorial
chair, and are better statesmen, than
TIman, but then it is not men but
measures that the farmers are voting
4or. They are crying out against a
ring and monopoly and all such. Well,
so far, so good. The "ins" do not
want to get out, and would gladly
hold on for life. In some respects
the charge of extravagance may be
brought to bear against some of the
officers, but there is nothing like cor
ruption or fraud in our State govern
inent. We do not believe a word of
any such charge. The question is
simply to get a new crew to man the
ship of State. The farmers are de
manding this, and we see no sin in
their demand, but if they are sincere
in this move, they have got to stick to
ply show that the farmers are not, as
has been charged, fit to take any hand
1in the political fights of the day, and
$they may as well delegate to the
". leaders" in each community their
right of franchise.
If it is a question simply of Tillman
:or some other man for governor, then
Sit is a matter of very little importance,
and we would very probably all seleet
-some man in whomi we had a more
'personal interest; but if it is a ques
Stion of measures, with Tillman as the
exponent, then personal feeling should
not be a factor. If the farmers think
there should be a change in the ad
minisfration of State affairs, there is
no harm in carrying the thought into
action, and they ought to be able to
do it this year, or at any time they so
Select, for they have the numbers on

more than mere numbers. A dozen

If the farmers are in earnest in this
movement, they must be thoroughly
organized, and stick to their colors
through thick and thin, good and evil
TILLAN WILL NOT DOWN".
A rumor was abroad last week that
the Anti-Tillman men would hold a
conference here Monday, but as far as
we could learn no regular conference
was held. There was, however, the
largest gathering of Anti-Tillman men
we have seen yet, and they held, we
suppose, numerous little conferences
beneath the beautiful shade trees of
the coiurt house square. They say
Tillman and Tillman influence in this
county must down; that not only must
Tillman be defeated, but that every
one who is an aspirant for a county
office and favors Tillman, must like
'wise be defeated. "No Tillman man
for any position of trust or honor" is
the cry. Well, may be so; and may
be so again, Tifllman influence is so
strong in this county that Tillman
delegates will be elected to the Sep
tember convention by an overwhelm
ng majority! It's all owing to how
much influence the former "leaders"
of this county can, in this particular
issue, have over the vote of the "peo
ple." We may be mistaken, of course,
but from a dispassionate view of the
situation we would say Tillman influ
ence is ahead in this county by about
five to one.
One thing in conclusion: let's keep
cool. Benbow, and Land, and Plow
den, and Broek, and Mills, andl~ Wil
son, and others, are all good men,
true and tried Democrats, and are
honest in their efforts hut at the same
time grant the same rights and priv
ileges to equally as good men on the
other side. The Tillman men are the
bone and sinew of the Democratic
party. All, all are good, true, and
Court convened last Monday morn
ing, Judge Hudson presiding.
The Judge's charge to the grand
jury was very long, and con
tained some good things. He
complimented the county on its
progress, and said that in considera
tion of this progress it was a shame
the county possessed no better court
room. He compared the court room
to a pig pen, and said that the furni
ture was entirely too shabby for such
a prosperous county. He defined to
them the nature of the oath they had
taken and the necessity of the proper
performance of their duties. The
unit rule of petit juries was discuss
ed, he advocating the verdict to be by
majority. He also desired to see a
change in the holding of court. The
civil court should first be held, and
one week given to it; then the court
of general sessions could be called and
another week if necessary given to
the trying of criminal cases. His
charge occupied fully an hour.
Several bills were then given to the
grand jury. The Solicitor stated in
reference to the bill charging Thos.
H. Harllee and Lawrence Bisset with
murder, that a petition had been
handed him, which he read to the
court, but that he could not take the
responsibility of making any motion
for a nol. pross. in the case, as the
crime charged was too serious. The
petition was as follows:
PLNwooD, S. C., May 9, 1890.
70 Jno. 8. l ilson, Esq., Micitor 3rd Judicial
We, the undersigned, respectfully request
that in case the grand jury of Clarendon
county, S. C., render a true bill against
Thomas H. Harllee, conductor, and 3Law
rence Bissett, engineer, upon the indictment
based upon charges growing out of the kill
ing of Mrs. Rebecca E. Childers by the cars
under their charge on the night of April 12,
1890, you will nolpros the case against said
parties for the following reasons, viz:
1. We are satisfied that said parties did
not intend to do any injury to deceased.
2. The Railroad Company has promptly
repaired the damages, so far as it can be
done, by making satisfactory settlements for
the injuries done.
3. So far as known to us it is not now the
wishes of the community in which the oc
currence took place to have these parties
prosecuted. Respectfully, [Signed by]
J. D. Childers, Nelson Griffin, D. F. Lide,
foreman of the jury, and all the other
members of the jury.
Mr. Childers was the husband of
the deceased lady, and Mr. Griffin
was the father of the little boy who
lost his leg. It will be remembered,
also, that these cases were compro
mised some time ago by the railroad
paying all expenses and $2,500 to Mr.
Childers, and $2,000 to Mr. Griffin.
The grand jury in a short time found
no bill, which ended the case against
Messrs. Harllee and Bisset.
The first case tried was that of
Dick Meyers charged with burglary
and larceny. Meyers having no at
torney to represent him was allowed
to defend himself. The testimony
showed that Meyers broke into the
house of Cornelius Ward and stole
therefrom some clothing and money.
Meyers uqdertogjjcross examine
he yiroseintiirg witness,-b'uT111 gu~es
tions only brought out such answers
as would fix his guilt, so his Honor
warned him of his danger and he
stopped. The solicitor declined mak
ing an argument. Meyers, however,
finished up his role of lawyer, and
made a speech in substance as fol
lows: "Well, gentlemen of the jury, I
am the prisoner at the bar, accused of
this crime. I am not guilty, and I
think I have been punished enough
already by being in jail. I will leave
this case entirely to the honor of the
jury, and ask your mercy, hoping you
will clear me." The case then went
to the jury, who in a few minutes
brought in a verdict of guilty. The
court immediately sentenced him to
the penitentiary at hard labor for five
The next case tried was against
Richard Harvin, charged with rob
bery and larceny. He was defended
by Jos. F. Rhame, Esq. The jury
rendered a verdict of not guilty.
Frank Meyers charged with forgery,
as stated in the Tnirs last week, was
found guilty and sentenced to one
year in the penitentiary. He had no
lawyer to defend him.
Brutus Pearson, black, and Eliza
Jeffords, white, were next tried.
They were charged with living in
adultery, and found guilty, and sen
tenced, Pearson to one year and Eliza
Jeffords to eight months hard labor in
the penitentiary. No one defended
The last case was against Pedro
Meyers, charged with assault and
battery of a high and aggravated na
ture. He was found guilty and sen
tenced to six months in the peniten
The judge in sentencing Brutus
Pearson and Eliza Jetords, spoke of
the disgusting scene of a white woman
and a dirty black negro thus disgrac
ing the community in which they liv
ed, and after the sentence was passed,
asked the sheriff to take them from
his presence as soon as possible.
Pedro, Dick, and Frank Meyers are
a father and two sons, each guilty of
a separate crime, and each sentenced
to hard labor in the penitentiary. Had
Pedro's knife diefiectod a half inch, it
is probable that he would have been
hung, for his victim would have been

presentment Monday afternoon:

W. M. PLOWDEN,
Last Saturday and again Monday
quite a number of gentlemen from
different sections of the county were
in town, and as a natural consequence
the topic of conversation was politics.
Some were very enthusiastic in their
advocacy of Tillman, and others equal
ly as enthusiastic in their opposition,
but all through the discussions, which
would at times become somewhat
heated, everybody was in a good
humor and everything passed off
One gentleman from the Cross Roads
section told us Monday that a new
club had been formed in his neigh
borhood with about seventy members,
and that in his opinion the people of
that section had made up their minds
as to the way they intended to vote
and it would be useless for any one to
to try to change them. The majority
of this section favor Tillman.
We also saw a gentleman from the
New Zion section, and he says that
while he is not favorably inclined to
wards Tillman yet a large majority of
his neighbors are "red hot Tilhnan
Packsville was also represented here
Monday, and those we saw were very
warm in their expressions favoring
Tillman for governor. Some were
here from Summerton, and they were
divided in sentiment. Panola had
her representatives here also and
judging from the sentiments express
ed by these gentlemen Tillman will
have a complete walk over, although
one of them remarked that he did not
like the language used by Mr. Tillman
when he said that the nineteen sena
tors that voted against the reappor
tionment were perjurers. He said the
language was too harsh and that he
would come to Manning on the 26th
of July to hear- Mr. Tillman give his
reasons for making such an assertion.
A gentleman from Jordan said that
that section with but few exceptions
can be safely put (down for Tillman.
Tegnlemnen that we conversed
withfromthe Deep Cr'eek section
told us that they were satisfied of a
rection taking place before the time
comes for electing delegates, and
when the reaction does take place
Tillman's boom will be scattered.
These gentlemen fav'or Gen. Earle in
stead of Tillman for governor, and
said that if Tillman carried otY the
prize at the regular convention they
would cheerfully vote for him, al
.though they think his nomination
would be a mistake.
We also had a talk with a very
prominent gentleman from Foreston.
He was out and out opposed to Ben
Tillman for governor. His opposition
does not date from the March conven
tion alone, but ever since Tillmnan first
came out. He thinks that the people
of this county would be making a
grave mistake by electing Tillman del
egates, and he hopes yet they will not
A prominent gentleman of Sandy
Grove said that he could only speak
for that portion of the county in whbich
he lived, and that he honestly believed
that niue-tenths of his neighbors are
for Tiliian now and would continue
to be so until some one else carries
off the gubernatorial plum.
Monday being the first day of court
we endeavored to get for our readers
the views of people from the different
,sections in order that they might have
an idea of the political outlook in this
county. We do not pretend to con
vey to the ininds of our readers that
these gentlemen were authorized to
speak for their respeetive se-ctions
and neighbors, hut these expressions
have a tendency to show how the peo
ple of the several portions of Caren
don are talking.
Let Reformi Men Low Ta'xes.
Capt. Tilhman has made twvo lonug speech
es in his canvass for governor. lie has re
Iferred, in very strong terms, to certain
wrongs done by the legislature~ ini the past,
and to certain departments cof thec State gov
ernent wherein he thinks there may be an
increase of etllicecy. But not yet has Ca pt.
Tilman pointed out the means wvhere'by
State or county taixes may ice rednceed a sn
gle dollar. Taxes are high. They are, in
many instances, burdensome. They should
be reduced, wherever reduction i: possible.
This is plain, and Mr. Tillmian is not alone in
the demand for retrenchment. But ;Is Mr.
Tillman is before the people, as an aspirant
to office, on a p~latfo~rm~ which is without
mieaning if it does not mean retrenchment,
he ought to point out just where expendit
ures may be curtailed. General observations.
homilies on the rights of the peolie, and
lamentations over their wrongs, are well
enough. But anybody can tell about these.

in the meaning of the term anytbing

begins to get his education, it is com

to school, and it ends when he leaves
school. It is to be expected that peo
ple who take this view of education
should themselves take no pains tc

them pick up their information and
form their mental habits by chance
and without system.

An important item of this is the
teaching of a child the relation be

parents do this! If a child, left tc

no causes unless providential, and
that horsehairs turn into snakes, h.

Many a mother gives her child a

logic, "because you mustn't," or, "be

that she does not know much abou
