S. A. NETTLES. Editor.
WEDNESDAY. JULY 2. 1890.
The people of Clarendon have gen
erally organized their Democratic
clubs, regardless of the action of the
Rev. E. J. Meynardie, D. D., of the
S. C. Conference, Methodist church,
died last Monday in Camden. He
was about sixty-three years of age.
The News and Courier last week in
one of their headlines makes the as
sertion that Tillmanism after all is
nothing but Radicalism against Dem
The people are thinking for them
selves this year, and the old political
leaders have found out that for once
they cannot get the masses to follow
them like sheep.
Another conference of the Anti-Till
manites has been called, to meet in
Columbia, July 10th. Any Democrat
opposed to Tillman is invited to at
tend. But Tillman will be governor,
Foreston, which bas been counted
-the strongest Anti-Tillman den in the
county, has come forward manfully
and organized a club solid for Till
man. A majority of the Democratic
voters in Foreston have joined it.
On our first page will be found a
defense from Senators Smythe and
Buist, for their vote on the census
reapportionment bill. The taking of
the census was not necessary, and we
at the time fully agreed with the ma
jority, who declined, for the little
ood it would accomplish, to place
this heavy tax on the people, and we
have had no reason since for changing
- In a primary in the town of
Geogetown last Friday, for the pur
pose of electing delegates to the
counDty convention, the votes stood 48
for Tillman and 49 against him.
Georgetown, which was thought to
be strong Anti-Tillman, proves to be
for the people's candidate. The coun
ty is said to be largely in his favor.
We shall not be surprised if Tilhman
carries every county in the State.
Tilman is still far in the lead, and
his prospective majority for governor
grows larger every day. At Aiken it
was hoped to dam the flood tide, but
the littleopposition was washed away
with a submerging wave of enthusi
asm. The meeting yesterday at
Winnsboro was the hotitest yet. There
were several fisticuffs, and a strong
effort was made to keep Tillman from
speaing, but he did speak, and gained
Candidates who desire to come be
fore the public should do so at once.
it is not at all improbable that Clar
eudn 'will, on account of the hot
litica feeling in this county, and& to
get matters quieted as easily and as
early as possible, nominate the sanious
,wonty ofiers at the first county con
vengion, which will assemble in about
arinth's time. Those, therefore,
who~ propose being candidat4 should
at once make their announcements.
In the heat and din of the fie~ee
awlitical contest now waging in'this
Stats it is indeed refreshing to have
the political situation thus discussed:
"Whom shall we have for governor:
Tailman, Earle, or Bratton ? This is
gow the all-absorbing question with
theaweage Carolinian. A much
olader but a far more important ques
tilon receives much less attention. It
is this: Shall Christ or Satan rule
-over me? We may not get the man
-.ofour choice for governor, but no
oue need be subjected to the domin
Sion of Satan unless he so chooses for
Some of our Anti-Tillman friends
claim that we are one-sided in what
-we publish about the campaign.
Upon cloe inquiry, however, we find
that they are careless readers, and
this probably accounts for many of
them being Anti-Tiliman. The Tnirs
is unneually liberal in its publications.
The account of the Columbia meeting
as published in the Word, was entire
:ly too long for us to reproduce, so we
take it from the Greenville News, a
'strong Anti-Tillmian paper. There
are numerous little innuendoes and
~unfair expressions in this article, but
Tllman is so strong he can stand all
such. The Columbia meeting was
not a Tillman meeting, but it came so
-near being aTillman meeting that it
took all the glory from the- "ring."
We also publish Senators Smythe
and Buist's defense of their vote on
the reapportionment question.
The State Democratic Executive
-Committee has assumed a strictly
partisan position in the present cam
paign, and are trying to work up
some plan "for anything to beat Till
wan." ,The farmers' platform did de
nisada'primary for delegates to the
State convention, but this was refused,
the'idea apparently being that if the
old political leaders took the field,
they would easily annihilate Tillman
and the Tillman infin.ence. But when
the campaign began, and at meeting
after meeting it was undeniably evi
dentthatTillmnan was sweeping every
thing before him, and that the old
leaders no more could lead the people
by thenose; then they took another
tack, and now, since the "educational
plan" works only for Tilliman, they
propose a primary. Well, we don't
want any primary now, and won't
have it, for since we have been insult
ed by-being told we lack sense, are
Rwadials, agd. all such, we fear there
is atrick in this new dodge. We are
Democrats, are truer to the party than
the small faction that claims that all
the good of the party exists only in
them, but when we are rebuffed, ill
treated, and called Radicals, we will
not submit as of yore. Tillman is to
be our next governor. At the A ug
ust convention we will endor& himn,
or nominate him, it all amounts to
the same thing, and then at the Sep
tenber convention we will do likewise.
While it is expensive, yet we are
ready and willing to meet in as many
conventions as the other side asks for,
because we propose not simply to
ominate Tillman, but to prevent if
possible the other side from splitting
away from the party. We have such
an overwhelzping majority that we
can be generous without running any
risks BRu+ Tilman will be governor.
The Clarendon Farmers' Assoiation En
thuslastically Endorses Ben Tillman.
Last Saturday at 12 o'clock the large body
of farmers who had assembled from all
parts of the county was called to order by
Maj. L. H. DesChamps, president of the
Farmers' County Asssciation. Louis Ap
pelt was requested to act as secretary.
Maj. DeRChamps in an earnestspeech au
nounced that the object of the meeting was
for the people of the county, especially the
farmers and those who sympathize with the
farmers in this movement, to have an oppor
tunity of freely expressing their opinions
on the living issues of the day, and he
hoped that the expressions would be full
Mr. E. G. DaBose said that while he had
many friends on the other side, yet he was
opposed to all kinds of aristocracy, and was
heart and soul in favor of Tillman. During
his speech he shouted "1 am for Tillman!
Hurrah for Tillman!" This brought down
the house in a deafening cheer. There was
no Mahonism, he said, to be apprehended in
this State, for the farmers were the soul of
the Democracy. He spoke at length, and
with considerable emphasis.
At the close of Mr. DuBose's speech. Mr.
R. S. Harvin asked if there was an Antie
Tillman in the house who desired to speak.
Notreceiving a response, Mr. James E. Tin.
dal was loudly called for.
Mr. Tindal began by saying that it was at
first thought to be unnecessary to call the
Farmers' Association together, but the ac
tion of the six members of the county exec
utive committee in attempting to prevent
the Democratic party from an early organi
zation had put a new aspect on the face of
things, and the farmers' association pro
posed to take a hand in the matter. The
evident intention of the executive commit
tee was to change the Tillman sentiment in
this county but a large majority of our peo
ple refused to submit to such a proceeding.
Mr. Tindal spoke at length making an able
and logical argument, giving a history of the
rise of the farmers' movement, and showing
the necessity for such a step. He discussed
a large number of the different measures af
fecting the farmers' interest, showing that
the farmers must be orgar'ized to derive ac
tual benefit. In speaking of Mr. Till
man he said his private character
was absolutely unimpeachable. It
was not however Mr. Tillman
but the movement that the farmers
had originated, and any effort to make it ap
pear as if it was a campaign of Tillman
against Earle or any other candidate was an
injustice to the cause. Mr. Tillman was
simply the exponent of the farmers' plat
form, and any other candidate would have
been as strongly opposed. He counseled
organization, immediate and systematic or
ganization. He spoke at length in a ration
al, conservative, and dispassionate manner,
and his remarks were well received and
Mr. E. G. DuBose again made another
long speech, at the close of which he intro
duced John R. Keels, Eso., of Sumter, who
msde a lengthy speech, in which he advocat
ed Tillman and the farmers' movement, and
violently attacked the position of Col. Earle
in the State canvass. He was often ap
plauded. Mr. Keels is a lawyer from Sum
ter, and the object' of his visit to this meet
ing in Clarendon was by no means apparent
to those present.
X. C. Gallachat, Esq., was called for, an d
endorsed the farmers' platform. He spoke
principally in favor of the free public
schools, and advised the people to a conser
vative course. The farmers' movement, he
believed, after a careful study, to be the
salvation of the farmers. His remarks were
Mr. J. H. Lesesne was calldd for, but he
declined making any remarks.
Capt. D). J. Bradham was then loudly
diled for, and it was insisted that he should
come to the front. His speech was short but
strong anid to the point, and was received
with loud applause.
Mr. J. Mi. Richardson read the follow
Wnmar.s self-government is the basis of
rights or justice and a government in sym
pathy with the whole people can only be
mintained when the majority of the people
who compose the Democratic party direct
its policy;.and whereas a convention of the
people assembled in Columbia in March
and adopted a platform of principles with a
view to that end, upon which all friends of
justice and ig u.ni rights may stand: There
fore, be u,. resolved by the assembly dfthe
farmers and their friends
1. That we heartily endorse the platform
of the March convention, and will support
no candidate for public offices who oppose
2. That we recognize Mr. B. R. Tillman
as the exponent of the principles and mecas
uhre andc we advocate and especially the
ineetadinalienable rights of self-gov
enent, and the rule of the majority fairly
exposed, and pledge him our united and
earnest support as our candidate for gov
ernor, until the election is decided by the
Democratic party of the State.
The resolutions were by a rising vote
Mr. Jas. E. Tindal moved that one mam
ber from each Democratic club in the county
be requeste to meet in private conference
immeiately after the adjocrament of this
The meeting was then adjourned.
The Tillmnan influence in this, county is
overwhelmingly strong, and this large meet
ing of over three hundred farmers unani
mously endorsing Tillmran and the platform
is an evidence of what the election will be.

THE FARMERS' MOVEMENT.
A Conservative Opinion from One of the
State's .Most Prominent Men-Where
the People Have Cause of Complaint,
and flow it. is to be Righted-Tillman's
Mistakes and Shorteoings.
Col. Robert Aldrich, of Barnwell, was in
the city yesterday, and was niet at the
Charleston hotel by at World reporter, who
addressed to him several questions on the
political situation in Barnwell and the State
"Four-fifths of oar people," said Col. Ald
rich, "are for Til!mian."
"N there likely to be any change in this
condition between now and the election?"
"The other fifth will be for him by then."
"To what do you attribute the strong sup
port the Tillman movement is receiving
throughout the State ?"
"'There is a tide in the affairs of "en
which, taken at the flood, leads on to for
tune.' There has been a wave of popular
discontent with our party methods gather
ing in the State for years. Capt. Tillman
has done a great deal to work it up, and at
the opportune moment he leaped upon its
crest, and it is bearing him into the guber
"Then you do not think it is dissatisfac
tion with our State government or officials
that inspires this support of Tillman ?"
"Certainly not. We have had since 1876
a clean, economical government, and our
offices have been filled by good me--I may
say our best men- -and there is no ground
for discontent on that score; but our meth
ods haye been faulty, and it is against these
that dissatisfaction has been growing for
years, and Tiliman offering the occasion,
the people are responding with earnestness
and enthusiasm to secure a change. After
all that may be said, the underlying princi
ple which controls the actions of our people
is a love of liberty, and they are not going
to submit to the despotism of a party any
more than they will to the despotism of a
government, any longer than they can help
it. For years past our elections have been
decided in Columbia. I do not mean by the
State tflicers alone, or by any ring-there is
no ring that I know of-but by public men
from all parts of the State, who meet there
periodically, and who 'shake up' and give
direction to events, and under our peculiar
conditions the people have been forced to
ratify their actions. In other words, instead
of the people choosing their own servants,
they have had candidates in which they
have had little or no voice in the selecting,
forced upon them with the alternative, "Take
these or go to the Radicals." Now, Tillman
saw this condition, and discerned the appro
priate relief for it. He has inaugurated a
policy by which the people will in fact, as
well as in theory, choose their own servants.
He offers to the people self-government,
pure and simple, and they seized the oppor
tunity with avidity, and hailed him as a
"Ideas, not nien nor measures, govern
this world, and it is this idea of their rights
and privileges being brought within their
own grasp that is controlling the people ot
the State, and there is no power on earth
that can shake them loose from it."
"What will be the result of it all ?"
"The immediate result will be the election
of Capt. Tillman. That is a matter of small
import. Men like him, while bold and ag
gressive in the fight for power, are proverb
ialy conservative once they have gained it.
Ht, will administer the duties of the office
as they are prescribed by law; no more, no
"There has been one roarked good effect
already; the people are more cheerful; they
are working more hopefully; their farms
and crops are in better condition than for
years past, and generally life has taken the
place of stagnation. But the ultimate re
stilt will be of the greatest good to the State.
Hereafter, when men aspire to office, they
won't go to Columbia to make interest for
themselves by the employment of the wiles
and arts of the machine politicians, but
they will go to the people, where the broad
gauge principles of the statesman tell in
the long run. Our young men will be
taught to cultivate these, and the people
themselves will be elevated and educated.
Look at Georgia, where the people them
selves, unaided by cliques and caucuses and
conventions, have always elected their offic
ials, governors, presidential electors, con
gressmen, and state officers after thorough
canvasses under the leadership of great
men. The ordinary farmer in that State, at
a cross roads store, can tell you more about
the political history of this country, and
understands the theory of the constitution,
and the government under it, better than
half the lawyers in South Carolina, and un
der the paralyzing influence of our system
over here, hundreds of Crawfords and Beri
ens, Toombses, Cobb%, Stephenses, Herschel
V. Johnsons, and Ben Hills have been born,
lived, and died without anybody knowing
it, and without knowing it themselves."
"You think, then, that hereafter all candi
dates will have to get down to personal
electioneering for the offices they aspire to ?"
"I do not think it much of a descent to
get on the plane of the sovereign people.
Some men elevate themselves upon an im
aginary pedestal and preternd to look down
upon the great body of their fellowmen. But
they have always appeared very silly to sen
sible people. If you mean that hereafter
candidates will have to go out among the
people and address public meetings, and
visit the people in their homes, and present
their views, and hear the views and opin
ions of the people on public questions,
(which many of our so-called public men
could do with much profit to themselves,)
in order to secure public favor, that is ex
actly what I mean, and the man who ques
tions the integrity of the people, or doubts
that the people will do right when left a fair
and unfettered opportunity to do so, is unfit
to represent a free people, for he has no
confidence in free institutions. That the
people will do right is the keystone upon
which the whole fabric of free government
"What of Capt. Tillman's charges against
the State government and its officials ?"
"Capt. Tillman is an untrained man, and
of course he has made and will make mis
takes. The most adept politicians and
practiced statesmen make them. What
wonder, then, that a man fresh from the
farm should do likewise. But I have no
ticed that whenever he is convinced of his
errors, he has the manliness to acknowledge
them and make suitable reparation. He has'
made some very reckless charges: for in-'
stance, the one against Judge Izlar was
shockingly and painfully and totally unjus
tifiable. Senator Izlar took an oath to sup
port the constitution; that means he was to
support it as he construed it, or understood
it, and that his construction differs from
Capt. Tillman's furnished ground Ior the
charge of peijury is ahsurd. But, utter all,
howv does that stand ? Day after day, wher
ever you go, you hear menMose opportu
nities to know better have been equally as
good as Capt. Tillman's, ascribing the con
duct of others who don't happen to please
them, to the vilest motives and most crimni
nail inducements. The only difference is
that they do it in a sneaking, cowardly way,
and Tillmian does it openly and above
board. Hundreds, yes, thousands of the
supporters of Tillan condenmn these things
as positively ats his opponents tlO, but all
the samue, there he standis as the great cham
pion of popular rights, and the people are
going to receive him with open arms in his
mission~ of bringing to them their own, with
al his imperfections."

F1lor Andbrson kiraal:-I see in your is
I sue of this week an article taken from the
Greenville News of the 12th inst., stating
that Capt. Tillman closed his speech in
'Greenville by relating a dirty anecdote.
thereby offending one Anderson man, and
also one observer. With justice to all par
ties concerned, I didn't think the anecdote
improper on the occasion, and under the
circumstances, as it was used on the Green
ville News, and meant to show that Capt.
Tillman was that day where he had been
for the four years past on the political situa
tion, and that the Greenville News had
changed its course, having once advocated
Tillmoan, and now opposing him, I give
the aniove without reproducing the anecdote.
I do not like to see anybody tilled with false
modesty, nor do I like to see everything
brought to bear against Mr. Tillman that
can be used against him; and will close by
saying that I heara a mnch worse incident
'related in Anderson at the campaign meet
ing in -76, and have never heard anything
said about it then nor since then.

An Ice Factory and a Votton Compress
According to the Wedchman the progress

dustries now in progress.
The movement to establish an ice factory
here has been so successful that the factory
is an assured fact. As soon as arrange
ments can be perfected with the manufac
turers of ice plants, work will begin. The
latest bi d that has been received to furnish
an ice plant with a cap)acity of ten tons per
day is $6,000. and ais $3,000 has already
been subscribed, with the promise of more,
it is evident that in a short time the factory
will be in operation,
A joint stock company has been formed
by Mr. A. K. Clark, of Aiuericus, Ga., for
the purpose of erecting a cotton compress
with a capacity of 1,00m0 tons. It is expect
ed to be ready for the coming crop. This
is one more proof of the progress of Sumter
and shows that outsiders are confident that

CAmxNG FaUIr.-Pare all fruit with
a silver knife, and, as it darkens by
exposure to the air, drop each piece
as pared into cold water, and prepare
only the quantity needed to fill two
cans. Fruit looks and is better when
whole, the juices are clearer, and the
flavor is, more fully retained. It is
diflicult to cook a large quantity even
without injuring the shape. For this
reason it is better to cook only enough
to fill a few jars at a time. Cook fruit
in a porcelain-lined or granite kettle.
If tin is used it should be new. Cook
evenly for fifteen minutes after it be
gins to boil. There is no necessity
for using sugar in canning fruit, but
one tablespoonful to a quart of fruit
is sometimes added. When ready to
can have all articles needed close at
hand. Set the can on two thicknesses
of warm, wet flannel. Dip out the
boiling fruit with a long-handled ladle,
and fill the jar to overflowing. Run
a knitting needle three times down to
the bottom of the filled can, and lib
erate the air bubbles. Then with a
quick movement, break the bubbles
lying on top and seal without the loss
of a second. In ten minutes tighten
the tops again with your wrench, and
when the cans are cool wrap in paper,
and keep in a cool, dry, dark place.
Be sure there are no seeds or sediment
on the rubber ring before sealing.
Another way of canning fruit is as
follows: Fill the jars with fruit and
pour over cold water, slightly sweet
ened, until the jars are tilled to over
flowing and seal. Place a cloth in the
bottom of kettle and fill with cold
water, let the jars remain in the ket
tle for fifteen minutes after the water
begins to boil, or until the water boils
in the jars. Remove and set out of
a draught to cool. Before putting
away tighten the tops. I have tried
both methods with success, having
them to keep perfectly sweet and firm
until the next summer. I prefer the
latter method, as it is much easier,
and I think preserves the fla7or best.
Cr.ri C.kE.-Two cups of coffee A
ugar, butter the size of an egg, three
eggs, a pinch of salt, two cups of sweet
milk, two heaping teaspoonfuls of
baking-powder sifted through six lev
el cups of flour. Should you not wish
to use biitter for shortening, take two
thirds cup thick sweet cream, one and
one-third cups of sweet milk, and
about five cups of flour. This quan
tity will make six layers of cake, three
for each loaf. Beat the butter and
sugar first, then add the eggs, beat
until very light, then add the other
ingredients, the flour and baking
powder last. Bake in jelly-cake tins
if you have them, if not, in pie-tins,
in a moderate oven. When cool,
sread the filling between and sprin
kle sugar on the last layer.
CREAM Foi FILLLNG.---Place one pint:
of new milk in a new basin over boil
ing water to scald; beat two eggs
smooth wit two tablespoonfuls of
flour, add one cup of sugar, stir into
the boiling .milk until it thickens, re
move from the fire, let cool, and flavor
with lemon or vanilla.
LEroN On~.or.-This cream may be
used for filling the cake instead of
that given, if desired; it also is nice
for tarts: Juice, yellow rind (grated),
and pulp of two lemons, being careful
to remove every seed and not to grate'
in the white part of the rind or t~he
jelly will be bitter; beat three heap
ing tablespoonfuls of flour with two
small eggs, add two cups of wvater,
two cups of coffee A or standard gran
lated sugar, a pinch of salt, and tLhe
lemon juice; place in a new tin dish
in boiling water and cook until the
mixture thickens. I sometimes add
a layer of raspberry or other nice jam
or jelly to the cream when spreadig
it between cake layers, for variety.
It is the attractive way in which food
is arranged and served that adds:
much to its relish.
SILK must never be ironed, as the
heat takes all the life out of it and
makes it seem stringy and flabby. If,
however, you wish to press out old
its of silk and ribbon for fancy work,
use an iron only. moderately hot, and
pace two thicknesses. of paper be
tween that and the silk.
