Last Monday we had a talk with
Trial Justice Fleming, of Salem, and

that the Democratic clubs will go to
Iwork at once and organize temnporari

uist comes they will be in a condition
to know who to elect as permanent
officers of their respective clubs. In
reply to the question of the political
sentiments of his neighbors he said
that the Tillmanites are largely in the

The Columbia Regi.9er says, "that
Ex-Gov. John C. Sheppard, of Edge
tield, has made the mistake of his
life, in declining to be a candidate for
the office of governor." The Register
ought to remember that Ex-Governor
Sheppard hasn't a very thick coating
of hair on his cranium, and it would
be utterly useless for him to bring that
well balanced appendage in contact
with a Tillman wall. Mr. Sheppard
has no doubt heard of "the ways that
are dark and the tricks that are vain,
the antis are dangerously peculiar;"
therefore he shows good judgment in
declining. The News and Courier of
yesterday asks, "what has becompe of
Lieutenant Governor Mauldin, of
Greenville? Why is he not on the
stump, speaking for himself and the
party ?" Perhaps Mauldin has been
to mill also, and yet this paper is not
discouraged. If keeps on crying for
help, and still it is not happy. Who
A Miraculous Escape.
Leila Johnson, the little three-year
old daughter of Mr. N. M. Johnson,
while playing with some other chil
dren yesterday morning in the yard
of Mr. C. R. Harvin, accidentally fell
into the well and would have drowned
had it not been for the quick assist
ance rendered. It appears from what
we could gather, that this child stood
upon a box that was by the well curb,
and undertook to draw some water,
when it became overbalanced or was
dragged down by the weight of the
bucket. She fell a distance of about
twenty-five feet and held on to the
bucket until a colored man went down
the well and brought her out.
The little girl had been in the water
about ten minutes and was very cold
when taken out, but upon examination
she was found to be unhurt, with the
exception of a slight bruise on the
side of the head.
This is another warning to parents
to keep their cnildren away from open
wells, and with but a very small cost
well curbs could have covers on them,
and thereby prevent the danger from
such places on one's premises.
Annual Meeting County Alliance.
The annual meeting of the County Alli

Manning on Friday, 4th July next, at 12

J. R. Tarleton, post master at this

News from Silver.
SI..vER, June 14.-We had a most
delightful trip to Eutaw Springs on
the 13th. This grand old spring has
its history that will ever live to be
cherished in the memory of South
Carolinians. It was a most pleasant
day to some of Clarendon's folks who
had never visited the springs before.
There was nothing to attract atten
tion on the road from Silver except
the crops. At Eutawville we took
the branch which runs to Pon Bluff.
This put us down in one-half mile of
the springs. This road has been
built for the convcnience of the Mich
igan lumber company. From the
springs we went to see the fine plan
tation of Mr. W. H. Sinkler. Here
you behold one of the finest pl'nta
tions in Berkley. His line stock farm
is an elegant arrangement, and his
imported Jersey and Ayrshire sLeep
is only another evidence that South
Carolina would compete with any
State in the union.

was tuarried to Mr. Ferdinand Levi, of Sum
ter, S. C., yesterday afternoon at the Eighth
Street Temple by Rev. L. stern. Th'ie ushers
were Messrs. Harry Frane, Al. Marks, of
Philadelphia, Jos. Strasburge~r, A. Levi, and
M. Rosenberg. A handsome dinner was
given at the residence of the bride's parents,
921 8th street, in honor of the young couple.
During the course of the dinner toasts were
offered by Rev. L. Stern, Mr. Cohen, Dr. A.
Behrend, A. A. Solomnons, B. F. Schwar tz.
Simon Wolf, Lewis Abrahiams and others.
The father of' the groomi presented the brzide~
with the deed to a honse and h~t, and more
than two hundred other hzandsome presents
were received. In the evening an eleg int
reception was given by Mr. Cohen, at which
a number of promirent people fromn out of
town were present, including Mr. and Mrs.

St. Paul, S. C.; Mr. and Mrs. Hirseh, of

laces and embroideries that has ever
been offered in this town.
My stock of yellow and checked
homespun was never more complete,
and bought direct from the mills and
at a time when they were considera

I guarantee that my stock of shoes

with such care and good taste
that (all who have purchased

and if there is anything at all in the
gents' furnishing line I guarantee that
no other merchant has a better assort

My grocery stock is always full, and

As I have said before I desire to
make room for my fall stock, and in or

boast, and when you come to town

prove to you that you will save money

tariff man, as every true Southerner should

Hon. L. P. Connor, Connors, S. C.-My
Dear Sir: While I agree with you that my
candidacy has nothing to do with national
issues. I cheerfully answer your questions
about my being a "Protectionist," which
charge is being made against me in many
My position on the tariff is simply this:
The United States government must have
money to defray its expenses, and with a
constantly increasing pension roll there is
likelihood of those expenses being largely
increased in future rather than diminished.
We cannot bear a direct tax, therefore "free
trade is a barren ideality," as I have said be
fore, and the bulk of the revenue must come
from duties on imports.
I hold that these should be laid on luxu
ries as far as practicable, and that the neces
saries of life and those articles consumed
by the masses should be burdened as lightly
as possible. I would not make the duty so
light as to destroy the chances of the Amer
ican manufacturer to compete against his
foreign rival, and I certainly would not
make it heavy enough to give a monopoly
to home-made goods. Everything which is
made by a trust or monopoly, like jute bag
ging, should be put on the free list, congress
thus serving notice on all combinations of
capital that any attempt to rob the people
by means of a trust would be met by the
competition of the world in open market.
This is simpler and easier than any attempt
to control or punish trusts. It is farcical
for congress to create trusts and monopolies
by means of the tariff, and thus throw dust
in the eyes of the peopl. by pretending to
try to control and prevent them by statute.
Boiled down. my ideas on the tariff mean:
A tariff for revenue with incidental protec
tion, so graduated and levied as to admit the
necessaries of life free of duty as far as
practicable and prevent trusts or monopolies
of any kind. There will be enough protec
tion for me under any schedule that can be
devised which will raise the necessary rev
enue. But there will have to be a national
farmers' movement before we will see any
thing approximating this. The Alliance
pronises to become such an agency. God
grant that its membership shall increase,
and their minds be enlightened; that we
hold steadfast to the faith and move steadily
forward till we see the national government
run in a way to give equal rights to all and
special privileges to none. When the masses
shall no longer be enslaved for the benefit of
corporations, banks, and manufactures. I
am very truly yours, B. Rt. TLLtMA.
