We were in Columbia yesterday at
~the campaign meeting, and were
with the manner in which
conducted himself. It was
an Earle meeting, and Col Earle was
the hero of the occasion, a very large
majority being Earle men; but Till
-man had quite a respectable following,
bohas to the number and character
of the men, and he left the meeting
with colors flying higher than ever.
Th Anti-Tillman crowd tried to howl
him down, but his followers stood to
him manfuly and while he did not
have a half showing, yet he gained
Svotes, and not one word that he utter
ed would have offended the ears of any
S.of the large number of ladies present.
K;If yesterday's showing is a fair sam
ple of the man, he is a man every inch
of him. Senator Hampton made a
nservative speeeb, and it was well
received. Bratton, Earle, J. 0. Has
kell, and Gary also spoke in the morn
ing. At night there was another
speech-making, at which five or six
spoke. It was the first and only Anti
Tlllman meeting yet, just as it was
expected to be, but it was much more
of a Tillman meeting than his friends
ernected. The Aifti-Tillmanites have
very little to brag of. The meeting
was devoid of any bad feeling, but
both sides partook largely of the na
ture of a proverbial long-eared ani
mal, in cheering and braying at the
wrong time. Why cannot sensible
men on such occasions quietly listen
till one speaker gets through and then
do their cheering ? The plan pursu
ed so far in these campaigns has not
common sense for a foundation.
Hampton county has elected dele
gates to the September convention,
and instructed them to vote for Till
man. The eitecutive committee of
Georgetown county has called a con
vention to meet several days be
lore the State campaign meet
ing, and has, we learn, informed the
State Executive Committe that they
prefer no campaign day in that coun
ty as they do not care to bear any of
the candidates speak. The action of
these two counties is reprehen
sible, and especially so in the case of
Georgetown. The executive commit
te of this county has coolly and delib
erately, believing the sentiment to be
Anti-Tillman, called a convention be
fore the day appointed for the candi
dates to speak, to elect Anti-Tillman
delegates. Hampton county, on the
other hand, acted hastily and in the
heat of provocation. A convention
was called in Hampton for other pur
poses than to elect delegates to the
State convention, but among the first
things done in the convention was for
the Anti-Tillman men to introduce a
set of resolutions condemning Till
man and the March convention. It
so happened, as will be the case in a
large majority of the counties, that
the Tillman influence was in the as
cendancy, and the resolutions were
promptly voted down. Then, the
Tillman men provoked by such con
duct took the bull by the horns and
elected delegates to the State conven
tion. This course was not right, but
no more we believe than the other
side would have done had they been
able to pass their resolution. The
Hampton action was not right; the
Georgetown action will be decidedly

EDITon MAssNG Tms:--Tn wading
through the voluminous and labored reply
of Col. Butler to the strictures of Capt. TiIV
man upon the management of the agricult
ural department, one can but be shocked
with the wanton and criminal extravagance
as shown in the conduct of the phosphate
ases. I propose to quote froa his own
figures, and to ask is its parallel to be fe".nd
He says the State in the suit against the
Pacific Guano Co. (an immensely rich ear
poration of Northern capitalists) obtained
judgment for seventy-six thousand dollars
butadmits a compromise was allowed upon
the payment of fifty-one thousand, a clear
loss to the State and its burdened taxpayers
of twenty-five thousand dollars. Who was
authorized to make and made this shameful
compromise, under a judgment in which
he confesses property worth a hundred
thousand dollars had been attached under
the judgment? With an attachment exe
cuted for seventy-six thousand dollars upon
property he says was worth a hundred
thousand dollars should it not have been
pre s ) he~ eetre9 of the last nickle ?
Col. B Ller then proceeds to show what
disp'~u was made of the amount paid
or fle State uponi the compromise with
Wacinec Guano Co., and also a lhttle mat
~ragainst Pinckney& Davis from which he
obtaed seven hundred and two dollars.
ie says the amount paid the Hon. Augustine
T. Smythe, State Senator from Charleston,
'in the Pacific Guano Co.'s case, was nine
thousand dollars. This enormous fee out
of fifty-one thousand dollars actually ob
taned for the State-over 16 per cent.
lawyer's fees. In the Pinckney & Davis
case this high priced attorney but very inftuA
ential State Senator out Herods Herod by
modestly taking five hu'rdred dollars as fee
out of the seven hundred and two dollars
collected for the State.
Is it possible that in all of the splendid
array of legal talent presented by the entire
bar of the State he could not have selected
his equal in ability and learning? I know
of many in twenty steps of his offige door.
Was it not that the department of agricult
ure wanted and needed the aforesaid Sena
torial influence to protect his and the de
partment's interests on the floor of the
If these statements which comes from Col.
Butler's own pen, had been made from the
rostrum by Capt. Tillman it would have
raised a howl among the Antis indeed. I
consider them as more damaging as regards
the management of the department than
an hag made by Capt. Tillman. Capt.
Tillman says there is -seven thousand doi
lars not accounted for; on the other hand
Col. Butler v-ery accurately aer'r.... ror
about thirty-five th~rand dollars utterly
wasted in foolish compromises and prepos
terous lawyer fees.
It bad been better for the department if
no reply had been attempted. And yet
Gen. Hagood in a speech delivered in Col
umbia one night this week declared that
Col Butler had conipletely and most satis
factorily cleared himself of every charge
made by Capt. Tillman. Are our old lead
er gone mad ? While he has accounted for
the deficit of seven thousand dollars, he has
revealed to the astonished and disgusted
view of the tax payers of the State a heavy
and really criminal loss sustained at his
hands. Col. Butler's management of the
finances of his department but substantiates
the charge of Capt. Tillman that there has
been great waste of the people's money:
more than this he has not charged, nor do
we believe. PAxOL-a
Five to One for Tillmian.
some weeks since I have written to you, and
in fact had almost come to the conclusion
to stop writing on the political situation, as
I see that yon have other correspondents
whose letters are more interesting than
mine. There is not an issue but that my
neighbors want to know what 'Panola Far
mer" or "Tom" or "Tillman Convert" has to
say, and read with avidity what they write.
A few'of my personal friends, whose
friendship I value very highly, differ from
me on the political situation. They seem
to think that the issue before the people is
between Tillman and Earle or Bratton but
I do not think so, and I am satisfied that I
am right. The question for the people to
Idecide is whether or not they favor the plat
form of principles adopted by the Farmers'
Association which met in Columbia last
March. If they are opposed to the platform.
then they cannot support Tillman for gov
ernor; but if they favor the platform they
must support Tillman as he is the spirit of
that platform. The opposition admit that
they would have opposed any other man as
bitterly as they are opposing Tillman had
the Association named some one other than
Till~an. Thus it is plain to my way of
thinking that it is not Tillman who is being
opposed but the principles of the farmers,
a set of principles that we have been strug
gling for until we have grown weary with
waitg, and with no chance of success with
our present leaders.
I notice the names of several good and
true men mentioned in the News and Con
rier that are opposed to us, and most of
them farmers, too, and if I were a stranger
to the people of Clarendon I would say at
(ce after seeing this array of prominent
names, that Clarendon county disapproves
of the farmers' platform and is satistied to
allow the old time politicians a longer term
of official life; but I am happy to say that I
k.no. them gentemen, each oneor themr
personally, and will admit that there was a
time when they could and did mould the
political sentiment for this county, and
while they yet have a great many admirers
and personal friends, they will find that:
their influence is gone as far as this issue
The people have made up their minds to
support the farmers' movement, and all the
wire pulling and political strategy will not
prevent or change them. I have been about
considerably within the past few weeks, and
a good portion of my time I have been vis
iting friends and relatives in Salem, and if
I were to tell you that nine-tenths of the
people in that section are determined to
support the farmers' platform you would
think I was doing some bragging, but if
there is an Anti that doubts it let bim take
the trouble to visit that section and be con
The recent action of the executive com
mittee is almost unanimously disapproved
of, even the few Antis that I have heard ex
press an opinion say that they think it was
a step in the wrong direction. However,
clubs 'will be temporarily organized, and
the officers of these clubs will have caution
enough to not be caught napping at -the
regular time for reorganizing the clubs. On
the 2nd day of August they will reorganize
and elect permanent officers, and a member
of the executive committee.
I hear that some are boasting that this
county will go against the movement, and
the prediction is made that Earle will carry
Clarendon. Perhaps those who are making
these boast-predictions can figure them out
on paper, for that is the only way they can
get at it, as the people themselves are the
proper ones to consult, and I have consulted
a great many and found that Tillman and
the platform will receive a majority of at
least five to one. Some say that the charges
made by Tillman have been withdrawn,
and that Col. Dargan made him take water
at Anderson. Mr. Tillman did apologize to
Mr. Dargan for using language about him
that he should not have done, and by his
having the manliness to apologize for doing
his fellow-man an injustice he has raised
himself in my estimation, for when a man
does wrong and becomes convinced of it he
is not a true man if he does not acknowl
edge his error.
Great stress is laid upon what Mr. Till
man said about certain senators perjuring
themselves. Now in the name of common
sense what can you say of a man who takes
an oath to support the constitution, and
when the constitution requires a certain
thing to be done and he finds that it would
take from certain counties some of their
representatives in the legislature and give
more representatives to other counties, and
thereby defeat a certain controlling influ
ence, what can it be called? Is it perjury,
deception, or wilful misconstruction? In
my opinion an oath is a promise to the
Creator, and it matters not whether taken
by a senator or plow boy. CONsERvATIVE.

Enthusiastic Club Meeting at Panola.
PAroLA, June 21.- ditor Mamniig Times:
A meeting of the citizens of the, Panola sec
tion was called at Capt. Brailsford's store,
and numbers responded. Mr. J. H. T.
Coulliette called the meeting to order, and
stated that the object was to allow all good
Democrats who felt an interest in the pres
ent political campaign to organize to discuss
the situation and unite for the purpose of
upholding the principles of the March plat
form and more especially to strengthen and
uphold the hands of Capt. B. R. Tillman,
the cha'mpion of the farmer and the de
fender of the right.
The Panola Democratic Club was then
formed and the following officers were
elected: C. R. Felder, president;J. M. Rich

PACEsYII-L.,, June 19.-Editor Moing
Tbnes: As I have been keeping cool and
letting my mustache grow for a short while,
I will set 'em up a few. Not much news
stirring in this section; good crops but no
candidates as yet, or at least none that I
have heard of in the Packsville section.
I notice that politics is getting pretty
hot about Manning on the Tillman question
and the farmers generally, but I guess that
won't last very long. I think some of those
dudes will cave under before long. They
will get so ashamed that they will act some
Ithing like our common toad frogs: they will
Isquinch their eyes and crawl backwards into
some stump hole. I notice a correspondent
of a newspaper, signed X, and I think X
suits him pretty well. I should judge that
he is crossed pretty much the same way. He
says. "I notice some think that the colored
voters are registering so generally in order
,to vote for Tillman, and if that is what they
are counting on they will be badly left."
Allow me to say right hcre, Mr. Editor,
that the farmers of South Carolina don't ask
for any colored vote~s to elect Tillman. They
have the majority to elect him or any other
'man they want without the aid of the col
ored voters. He seems more like he wvould
like to get the colored votes for himself than
any one else. If he wants them there is no
use whipping the devil around the stump:
let him declare himself a candidate andi
coec out on the Republican tickct.
In conclusion, Mr. Editor, Iam informed
by a reliable source that .a young man
of your town, occupying an in
fluential position, has said that the
farmers did not have sense enough
to manage the affairs of the State. I will
admit that some of them are very narrow
minded, but I think that the very worst id
iot that we could find among them would
equal this little fellow in that respect. Just
let the little man rear: walk out lawyers and
members of the old ring; walk in Tillmian
jand rerorm;that's the way they go. C. B.

The Tillman wave is rolling on
With a resistless force,
And all opponents one by one
Are thrown out of its course.
The News and Courier with Hemphill
Have tried tostem the tide,
But that it's floating onward still
Can never be denied.

Like Baalam's always prove
Blessings instead of curses: lies,
True Democrats don't move.
Our executive committee too
Have followeed in the lead,
But I will try and show to you
Where they were wrong indeed.
For when a loaded club they took
The Tillman ranks to smash,
They met with such a stern rebuke,
Swift as the lightning's fiash.
The farmers more united stand
And with determined mein
Intent at once to take a hand
And let it now be seen.
That once for all their rights they dare
Maintain. Though foes be strong
Democracy need never fear
From them aught that is wrong.
So brother farmers tiruily stand
'Mid sunshine and 'mid storm;
Bear your proud banner through the land,
For Tillman and reform.

COLUMnn, June 24-A most heartrending
accident occurred here this morning.
Messrs. John Stork, W. H.-Cassonx, and Olin
Sarre were preparing to fire a salute with
one of the old guns on the Fair ground,
when the piece was prematurely discharged,
taking off the right hand of Mr. Casson, and
horribly mangling the other two men. Mr'.
Barre was horribly burnt and wounded all
the way from his waist up. His clothes
were all blown off him, his face and head
crushed into a jelly by the force of the
blow, and both his arms were literally blown
The injuries to Mr. Stork were less seri
ous, but extremely painful. His right aria
was shattered from the elbow- down and
pieces of ramrod were projected all through
his left arm. An immense crowd immedi
ately gathered around the wounded men,
and it was with the greatest difficulty that
the people were kept back. It was a most
sickening sight-two men lying prostrate
on the ground, wounded and bleeding
and blackened by powder almost froui head
Mr. Stork's right arm was amputated just
below the elbow, and though there is no
doubt of his recovery, the shek he experi
enced was awful and his suffering is intz:"
The cause of the accident was the same as
that which occasioned a somewhat similar
accident last winter during the Davis mem
orial ceremonies; Mr. Casson was keeping
the vent closed while the others were ram
ming, when something or somebody caused
him to slightly move his finger, and the ex
plosion immediately took place.
Mr. Barre died at 10..54 to-night. His
father was with him at the last and his end
was apparently painless. Mr. Stork is con

-After a good rain we have had a week of
good grass killing. Farms are cleaned out,
and work well up, but General Green has
some of the farmers in the back ground yet;
so much so that they are offering one dollar
per acre to get their cotton chopped out. Mr.

Cancer of the Lip Cured.
I suffered from cancer on my lip that defi
ed the skill of the best physicians of the
State. I had it burned out, but the opera
tion only made it worse, causing it to spread
over more surface and eat deeper in. I final
ly had it burned off again, and used Swift's
Specific (S. S. S.) to heal it up and drive the
poison out of my blood. The effect of the
Specific was magical I It healed up the can
cer entirely without leaving a scar as a re
minder. This was over four years ago, and
since then there has been no sign of a return
of the cancer. I will cheerfully answer any
enquiries in regard to my case.

A Prominent Druggist Cured.
"Eleven years ago I was suffering from an
attack of white swelling. A great many
prominent physicians attended me but fail
ed to effect a cure. I commenced using
Swift's Specific (S. S. S.), and after using it
for a few months I was entirely cured, and
since then have had no symptoms ot its re
turning. I feel that the cure is entirely due
to the curative properties contained in S. S.
S. 1 can cheerfully recommend it as a md
icine to all suffering humanity."

To TAKE INK OUT OF A COLO)ED T %.LE
cOVEP.-For a large ink stain, dissolve
a teaspoonful of oxalic acid in a tea
cup of hot water. Pour it into a
bowl, and dip into it the part that is
stained by the ink, rubbing it well in
the solution. .If the ink does not
come out well, mix some fresh oxalic
acid and hot water, and add it to the
first. Rub the stains a while longer;
and when the ink has all come out,
dip the part immediately in water that
is warm, but not hot. Rub it well in
the water, to get the oxalic acid en
COLD BEEFSTEa.-May if rather un

bread crumbs and minced parsley and
moulded together with a little rich
gravy and a beaten egg Have a cake
tin greased with butter, in which put
the hash firmly and put it in a quick
oven, remberiing that the second cook
ing of all meats must be clone quickly,
and let it get browned, when turn out
carefully, garnish and serve.
MEAT BALL.-Take scraps of meat
(uncooked pieces being better than
cooked,) together with a small bit of
sweet salt pork, and chop them very
tine; also a small onion, if liked, and
add to two cupfuls of meat one of
fine bread crumbs, salt and pepper to
taste, a little minced parsley if you
have it, and an egg to bind all to
gether. Drop into very hot lard, and
serve on a bed of fresh, crisp water
IN C'rrinx up CHICKENs.-Be sure
to use a knife to disjoint them, instead
of chopping them. Also care should
be taken wY:,th all meats not to use a
batchet, as the fine splinters and sliv
ers of bone which are exceedingly
sharp, may cause serious trouble if
taken into the mouth and stomach.
It is a cook's place to look carefully
over all meats, taking out all small
pieces of bone, especially lamb, veal,
Frank Buckland used to say that he
found eating onions at supper the
surest help to sound sleep. We used
to think this a fancy of his, but we
are reminded of it by reading a state
ment by an American magistrate, Mr.
Clymer, of Reading, Pa., who says:
"Onions inhaled cause sleep, rest, and
repose. The soldier on his march and
the exhausted iron-worker get great
strength from eating onions. Tie a
fresh onion around the neck, and
bruise it to make its odor thorough,
and you secure sound sleep from its
HuMoR IN THE FAMLY.-Good hu
mor is rightly reckoned a most valua
ble aid to happy home life. An
equally good and useful faculty is a
sense of humor or the capacity to
have a little amusement along with
the humdrum cares and work of life.
We all know how it brightens up
things generally to have a lively, wit
ty companion who sees the ridica
ious point of things, and who can
turn an annoyance into an occasion
for laughter. It does a great deal
better to laugh over some domestic
mishaps than to cry or scold over~
them. It is well to turn off an impa
tient question sometimes, and to re
gard it from a humorous point of
view, instead of becoming irritated
about it. "Wife, what is the reason
I can never find a clean shirt?" ex
claimed a good but rather impatient
husband, after rummaging all through
the wrong drawer. His wife looked
at him steadily far amoment half in
lined to be provoked! then, with a'
comical look said: "I never could
guess conundrums; I give it up."
Then he laughed, and they both
laughed, and she went and got his
shirt, and he felt ashamed of himself
and kissed her, and then she felt hap
py, and so what might have been an
occasion fo-r unkind feelings and hard
words became just the contrary, all
through the little vein of humor that
cropy 3d out to the surface. Laugh
ter is better than tears. Let's have a
little more of it at home.
Housework is healthy, and many
physicians recommend it to women
who need exercise. Walking is not
enough; it exercises only the legs,
while dusting and sweeping bring an
entirely different set of muscles into
play. It will be found, too, that
many girls will take more interest in
their homes if encouraged to assist in
the care of them.---Ar/h ur's' Home
