WEDNESDAY. JUNE H. 1890.
The action of the majority of the
executive committee last Friday in
postponing the reorganization of clubs
till August, fails very largely to rep
resent the will of the people of this
county. The people want the clubs
reorganized at once, and they will not
regard with any favor the plea of the
majority that by August they will be
better prepared to organize and voice
a sentiment. - Already several clubs
have shown their condemnation of the
course of the executive committee by
organtgirg their clubs, and so a great
many other clubs will do. In fact, in
our opinion, the clubs should be or
ganized at once, ad we advise in fa
vor of such a proceding. Such an or
ganization now will not, of course, be
legal, but the people will thereby have
a means of formulating some action
and giving expression to their views.
It seems as if the effort to prevent
organization is simply to try to down
the Tillman influence in this county.
But this plan will not succeed. The
clubs will most of them be organized,
rolls formed, officers temporarily
elected, resolutions passed, and all
that will be necessary August 2d, is
for a motion to be passed making the
temporary organization p6rmanent.
This is what we advise every club in
county to do.
True merit demands approbation,
and in no case in the entire State
government is any officer more enti
tled to approbation and commenda
tion than Comptroller. General Verner.
His management of the financial af
fairs of the State is far ahead of that
of any of his predecessors. By acts
passed by the Legislature through
his advice and influence, the settle
m znents with the various county offices
are now made in such a manner as to
make fraud or corruption almost im
possible. The auditor, treasurer,
school commisioner, county commis
sioners, and foreman of the grand
jury are all required to be present
wh'le each voucher and account is in
spected. The way he pulled off .his
coat last Friday and went into this
-settlement showed that he was a thor
ough business man, not afraid of
~work. It is one of the best and most
educating acts ever passed by the
Now he is just getting his plans in
~gaTd working order, and it would be
worse than folly to make a change. He
is an able and intelligent officer>en
d->wed with a full share offocad hard
common sense, and weewant just such
-men in office. W9A-rant to see Gen
oral Verner)~epfin office for years
~aslag-a-ie will have it and contin
'-?to prove so efficient an officer.
By all means let us keep Verner in
office. We doubt if his equal is
*available in the State.
THE GREENVJLLE MEETING.
A large and enthusiastic crowd of
nearly two thousand persons met
the campaign speakers in Greenville
yesterday. Capt. B. R. Tillman, Gen.
Jos. H. Earle, and Gen. Bratton an
nounced themselves for governor, and
each made speeches. The crowd was
very largely in favor of Tillmnan, and
be had things his own way. Every
thing passed off quietly and pleasant
'ly. The other speakers present were:
* R.B Gary, for lieutenant governor;
7 . 3. Pope, for attorney general; H.
S. Farley, for adjutant general; J. S.
Vernes, for comptroiler general; Quit
man Marshall, for secretary of State;
W. D. Mayfield and J. H. Rice, for
superintendent of education. Gary,
Pope, and Farley each announced
themselves as candidates on the Till
man platform. If all the meetings are
as this was, Tillman will have an easy
time of it.
It is expected that Mr. James E
Tindal will be a candidate for Secre
tary of State on the Tillman ticket
Mr. T~indal will make an excellent of
licer, and if he will consent to run can
easily be elected.
The Couty Democratic Executive Com
mittee rostpone the Reorganization or
the Clubs for Two Mouths.
The executive committee of the Democrat
ic party in Clarendon county was called to
order at 11.30 last Friday morning, Count)
Chairman James E. Davis in tbc chair.
Capt. J. A. Mills was elected secretary, pro
temn. The following members of the comn
mittee were present:
3. A. Mills, J.0O. Brock, J. E. Tindal, E.
D. Hodge, L H. DesChamps, W. D. Gami
ble, J. 8. Wilson, C. S. Land, J. F. Rhamne,
E. G. DuBose, and R. M. McKnight.
The chairman read the call of the State
Mr. Tindal moved that Saturday, June
21st, be the day for the reorganization of
Maj. Land thought the time too early and
suggested that the clubs be not organized
till after the campaign meeting, which will
be held here July 26th.
Mr. Wilson, also, favored a late reorgani
Mr. Tincd said the State executive com
mittee had organized, and it was likewise
necessary for the party in the county to or
ganize, or how could there be any action or
campaign meetings. He wanted the clubs
to organize at once, so that- campaign meet
ings could be appointed, and the county
primaries held in August, before the farm
era got too busy.
Mr. E. G. DuBose favored an early organ
Capt. J. A. Mills moved to amend by sub
sitating Saturday. Aug. 2d, for the date of
no organization of the Democratic party in
Clarendon, and was told by the chairman
it had that appearance. He said it was
necessary to have an organization, and that
the people wonld regard any such late or
ganization as a trick against them.
Maj. Land elaimied that the old committee
would hold over, and maauge thins till the
clubs were organizd.
The chairman read the call which dis
tinctly stated: "The cmity chairman Of
the several counties in this State will pro
ceed to have the Democratic clubs ink their
counties reorganized, and take such steps
as are necessary to carry out the call and
for the election of delegates to the State con
County Chairman Davis said that accord
ing to his construction of the above instrue
us he felt it his duty to order a reorgani
zation of the clubs at once, and he asked
the executive committee to decide whether
he should do so or not, and unless they pus
itively said he should not do so that he
would at once proceed to reorganize.the
clubs. He had been on the executive com
mittee since 1878, and the clubs had always
heretofore been crganized in June, and he
insisted that it was best to organize at once.
Mr. Wilson said he was Anti-Tillman to
the backbone, but Mr. Tillman himself de
sired a long campaign, and he saw no harm
in postponing the matter till late in the
summer. That after hearing all the speak
ers and reading what the papers had to say
the people would then be better prepared
to reorganize the clubs and to elect dele
gates. He believed it was for the best to
postpone this reorganization, and saw noth
ing in the call of the State cxecutive com
mittee demanding immediate reorganiza
tion. So it was done in time to meet the
necessities of the party it was sufficient,
and he wanted the matter postponed till af
ter the campaign meeting in July.
[We will here state that all present agreed
it was best to postpone the election of dele
gates till very !at, bat the question was
simply as to reorganization of clubs, the few
Tillmanites present favoring early organi
zation, while the Anti-Tillmanites wanted
to wait as long as possible.]
Mr. Tindal wanted no unfairness, was
perfectly willing to have all matters thor
oughly discussed, and wanted the people to
have all the education on the subject they
could get, therefore he insisted on an early
organization, for then they could hold pub
lic meetings and invite speakers to address
them on the issues of the day, whereas
without organization they would be ham
Mr. Davis stated that the discussion was
drifting into Tillman and Anti-Tillman,
while in fact it was organization against
Radicals, and he thought we should be
Several other speeches were made, and
then the question was put on adopting the
amendment, to have the clubs reorganized
Aug. 2d. Messrs. Brock, Hodge, Land,
McKnight, Mills, and Wilson voted in the
affirmative; and Messrs. DesChamps, Du
Bose, and Tindal in the negative: so the
amendment was adopted by a vote of 6 to 3.
Mr. Tindal rose to enter his protest
against six of the nineteen members of this
committee thus depriving the clubs of reor
ganization. He was a Democrat, had al
ways been a Democrat, and he felt it would
create trouble in the county. He spoke at
length and with considerable emphasis.
Mr. Wilson claimed he was a D'emocrat,
too, as was every member of this committee,
but he saw no harm that could resulLffrom
- . - he colb
mnittee had acted properly and for the best
interests of the county Democracy.
Mr. McKnight moved that delegates to
the county convention be elected Saturday,
Aug 9th. Carried.
Mr. McKnight moved that the county con
vention he held Friday Aug. 15th. Carried.
Mr. Rhame moved that the call of the
convention be for electing an exeentive
committee and county chairman; to elect
delegates to the State and Congressionial
conventions; to determine the plan for mk
ing county nominations, and if by conven
tion to make them that day; and for such
other business as may be brought bc-fore the
Mr. Hodge moved that July :Mlth, the. day
appointed by the St:.te executive miuittee,
be the time for holding the State camipaiLgn
meeting in this county. Carried.
Mr. Wilson moved that J1. E. Davis, E. G.
DuBose, J. F. Rhame, C. S. Land, W. D).
Gamble, and JT. E. Tindal be a committee of
arrangements for the campaign meceting.
The secretary was on motion instructed to
correspond with the former secretary, Mr.
F. P. Cooper, and obtain from him such
books, funds, etc., as he may have on hand.
Capt. J. A. Mills was on mioticon elected
secretary of the county executive committee
In reply to a question from Chairman Da
vis as to whether the vote of the committee
meant to take from him the power of issuing
instructions to the clubs to reorganize, Mr.
Rhame said that in his opinion that prwer
is vested in the comimittee and not in the
chairman, and the committee so decided.
Mr. Tindal claimed that a grave injustice
was done the Democracy of this county hy
postponing the reorganization. Mr.
Davis had stated that two mem
'..s of the executive committee had
died; another member had left the State;
and two other members had by the forma
tion of Florence county been taken from
the county. This left tive Democratic
clubs without any representation till the
convention met, Aug. 15th.
The committee then adjourned, after a
session of two hours.
Tillman Strong at Davis.
Last Saturday Manning sub-alliance held
a meeting at Davis's school house, and after
transacting considerable private business
elected the following officers for the ensuing
Capt. T. J. 31. Davis, president.
L. L. Wells, ice president.
D. J. Bradham, see, and treas.
S. A. Nettles, lecturer.
Louis Appelt, assistant lecturer.
J.Ebr avis, sergeant at arms.
William Francis, door keeper.
R. F. Ridgeway, chaplain.
This sub-alliance is in a very prosperous
condition, and from the financial rep~ort it
is no idle boast to say that the Manning
sub-alliance is second to none in the county.
After the alliance adjourned a citizens
meeting was called to express themselves on
the political questions that are now being
discussed all over the State. Mr. L. L.
Wells was called to the chair, and Mr. J. H.
Burgess acted as secretary. On assuming
the duties of president of the meeting Mr.
Wells in a few remarks stated its objects,
and requested that the political issues be
Capt. D. J. Bradham was called for, and
he started off by expressing his regret that
a previous engagement prevented the Hon.
James E. Tindal from attending this nieet
lg, but that he, as best he could, would ex
plain the issues that are now before the
people, and then discuss them. Hie told
about the platform adopted by thet March
convention, explained its ditferent features,
and then advised thema not to allow
themselves to be coaxed and persuade~d
from their honest convictions. If
they believed that the platform as adopted
was right it was their duty to stand up for
not Tillman or anybody else: it was a plat
form of principles, and this fight is being
made for principles and nbt for men. He
warned against behig misled by the opposi
tion bringing out men against Tillman who
perhaps were personally better liked by
them than Tillhan, as such a proceeding
proved conclusively to him that they were
only trying to imiciie the Alabama tmctics.
These men will be brought ont from the
different counties, and what for ? Only one
can get the nomination. but it their plan
succeeds as prepared by the "three
blind mice," then these candidates from the
several courtites will con:o!idtte their forces
and throw all their votes to "anybody to
beat Tillnan." He also asked thit if they
were ini earnest to go to work, talk to their
neighbors and those that do not understand,
teach then that they' may understand and
not to allow any mian to lead them froitm the
path they wish to follow. Capt. lBradham's
speech was fregnently applauded, and was
delivered with all the earnestness of hi. na
tore, but ait the same time was free from
anything thiat smacked of bitterness.
Mr. James E. Davis was Iext c-alle-d for
ward. He stated that he did not coime to
the meeting for the purpose o1 making a
spech, but as he was called upon for an
expression he would explain the ppsi
tion he took with the executive committee
which met on Friday. He spoke at coisid
erable length, and freely and fully discussed
the action of the executive coimittee in not
allowing the clubs tom be reorganized till Au
gust. His remarks had a telling eftfeet, and
determination to organiz.e any way Was de
picted on every countenance.
3Ir. S. A. Nettles, who arrived just as Mr.
Davis was finishing his speech, was called
on next, and spoke on the political issues of
The last person to speak was Mr. Louis
Appelt, who went over the issues that are
now pending, and advocated the platform,
and advised unity of action. In an earnest
manner he explained his position and gave
his reasons for being in favor of the farm
ers' platform. He claimed that Tillman
was not the proper question for considera
tion, the real question was the plattorm, and
in order to get the platform the spirit of
that instrument follows as a necessary con
sequence.. le tried to impress upon all
present the necesity to be at their po .ts of
duty, that when their respective clubs were
called together to go there, rain or shine,
and not allow themselves to be blinded by
by all kinds of side issues. When the op
position have tried all their tricks it will be
seen that they had been spending their ef
forts in "anything or anybody to beat Till
man and the farmers' platform."
The following resolutions were then in

An Anti-Tillmuanite Talks.
Entrom' Mixxxix Tmmts: - Your editorial
of -June 4th, ''Down with Tiilrlan, the- sl
gan of the opponents of her T1illnman,"
don't read like an ,'ditorial, hut mocre likhe
the p~r.dnetion ol a sore liead or an onic-e
seeker. Now I don't be-lieve you are either:
you must be bilions. That is the only e*
curse I can find for vanl. I would like tom
know in the mune of common se-nse- what
more right Tillman has to gubernatorial
honors than a hiundired other gentlemen in
the State ? Has he done more for the ixt
ple of the State than a gre at nmany' others?
Did he do more to irid us of Radical rule in
'76 than Bratton, Earle. Sheppard, and hun
dreds miore I could mention, just as good
men as he is? You say you be-lieve some of
the other candidates spoken of are better
itted and better statesmen than Tillmnan; I
agree with y-ou on that point, liut why have
they not the right to run ? They are citi
zens and Denmocraits, and I have no doubt
will do as much for the farmer-s as TIillman,
and at the same tinie represent all classes in
the State, If class legislation is what you
want then put Tilhuian in as the farmers'
candidate, and ignore all other professions:
and so u-hat will become of our State ?
As to extrav'aganee in our State govern
nment, I don't believ'e any set of men coul
have (done better than those that have b~een
in office since "7i, and if the so-called re
formers get in possission of the State I have
no idea they will do any bettei-.
You seem to think it is a great sin foi- a
man to be a farmier and not be a Tilhieanite.
Well, there are thousands of sinners in this
old State of ours, and they are going to
continue in their sins until the 4tih ( Selp
temiber, and then put in nomination the 'best
men they' can find in the State, and not hurt
the farmers either. Now I have no objec
tion to having farmers in office, for somec of
our buest men are farmers, lint at the same
time we should not ignore other professions.
What wve should do is to put the best mcin
u-e have in office, irrespective of plaice or
occupation, and not cry out opipression be
eause you are a farmer. We are all Denmo
crats, and havec an enemy to tig;ht outside of
our own ranks, one that threatens us on all
sides and is re-ady' to take advantag'e of auniy
rupture that may be made in our ranks. I
say just here there is no cause fuor conmplaint
in our State government: the Stte is moire
prosperous than it has been since '76 in all
branches of our industries. Now let us (do
away with class legislation; pull together as
one loan; an d be ready in November to elect
a Congressman from every district in the
State: and show to ouir enemy, the Re publi.
cans, that South Carolina is a solid Democ
racy, and that no petty faction can split us.

dently intrnded to signify that the piersons
to whom it wa- applied are crazy on the
subject. As the word Tillman mieans one
who tills the earth, a husbandinan or farm

all who till the earth are fools. At any rate
it seems to have been used as an opprobri

properties of th- mineral springs in this

the beauty of the :enery unsurpassed.

Huntsville is the spot containing iiore ad

her remarkable popularity to lhe laracter

Monte Sano is three wiles distant and
nearly 2,000 feet high; Shelter Gaverns, now
rivaling Mammoth Cave, Ky., is only one
and one-half miles away. Huntsville has
numnierons drives and pleasure resorts, and
to irists and invalids make it their head
quarters on account of the excellent hotel
advantages. Tlheir climate is one of the
things Huntsvillians boast of. That the air
is inivigorating is to be expected among the
montains and at a point nearly one thou
san-I feet above the sea, while Monte Sano
still lifts itself far above us and only three
miles away. You may walk as early and
late as you phlase, for however heavy the fog
niay hang above and around us, there is no
malaria here to instill its poison into our
system. Huntsville is built not, only with
the capital of her own citiz-ens, but conl
stracted with materials close at hand. Brick
limestone, saindstone, marble, are abundant
and enough for all nieeds. Coarse lnober,
with all the hard wool and fine lumber in
endless variety and quantity. A du:nmy
line from here to the top of Monte Sano.

Peculiar in conmbination, proportion and prep

remedies of the vegetable kingdom.
Peculiar in its miedicinial merit, Hood's Sarsapa

?ecullar in strength and economy - Hood's San
saparilla is the only medicine of which can truly
bc said, " 100 doses one dollar." Medicines in larger
and smaller bottles requiro larger doses, and do

Peculiar in its "- good name at home "- there is
more of Hood's Sarsaparilla sold in Low-ell, where
it is made, than of all other blood purifierns.
Pecullar in its phlenomenal recond of sales
