WEDNESDAY, JULY 9. 1890.
Salem has few Anti-Tillmanites, and
it is almost an assured fact that no
Anti-Tillman club can be formed over
there. There are not fifty Anti-Till
manites in Salem.
Our business men are totally care
less about the future progress of our
town. They are not imbued with
enough energy to meet together to
discuss probable benefits.
All the clubs must meet Saturday,
July 19th. Let every member who
can possibly do so be at his club
meeting promptly. The meeting Aug.
2d is also important. Be sure to at
tend these two meetings.
It is now almost an assured fact
that Clarendon will have but one
county convention, that on Aug. 9th.
Delegates to the State conventions
for the season will then be elected,
and all county officers will be nom

the position of editor of the Sumter
-Watchnan and Southron, and began
his work on that paper last week.
Mr. Scott is an easy and fluent writer,
has had some experience in newspa
per work, and will give his readers
something to think about.
Clarendon must be the banner coun
ty in the State for order on the 26th.
Of course we will "whoop it up" for
TiBman, but we must give a decent
hearing to every candidate. Tillman
is a good speaker, talks sense, and can
easlyh6ld his own with any of the
candidates. We do hope that the
Manning meeting will prove the qui
etest of the campaign. Give every
speaker a quiet and attentive hearing.
The Tilimanites attempted to hold
a private conference in Columbia last
Monday night, but a sharp newspaper
reporter stole a march on them, got
his ear to the key hole, and next
morning reported full proceedings of
the private conference. But when
they got the private remarks public,
it was all right, all for Tillman, and
nothing in the conference to be
ashamed of. And Tillman will get
Seven county conventions have so
far been held, and six of them are for
Tillman. Abbeville, Chester, Colle
ton, Hampton, Marlboro, and Union,
.ve elected delegates for Tillman,
while Georgetown is against him.
These seven counties cast sixty votes,
and of these sixty votes Tillman has
fifty-four, or nine-tenths. And so it

Day after day and week after week
we hear the cry that the political tide
has turned, but to our vision the great
Tilman tidal wave is simply rushing
forward, gathering increased force as
it goes, climbing higher and higher.
SA few clubs opposed to Tillman meet
eamlgaseesoutions condemning the
'-iarmers' movement, but the vast ma
jority of the Democratic clubs in this
State endorse Tillman and reform;
ani Tilinan will be elected.
KThe regular odline politicians are
n aturally ilearly'all on the anybody
lo-beatifillman side, and were it not
for the fact that the reform side num,

the Till, e would be
~~gine of success. The
ensnpporting Tillmnan are few of
~ themn politicians, but are a quiet, cori
niesrvative set, who desire to do what is
~best for the country. Taking our
~coatyas afair sample there will be
-found comparatively very few who
can be bought over, either by a silver
dollar, a drink of whiskey, or a bull
doze. They will be found standing

Slast roll call is heard.
TiSummerton Star has changed
bands, and Mr. J. E. Gardner is now
the editor. In his farewell Mr. P. G.
Bowman, who has been editing the
perthe two months of its existence,
asthat there was such a pressure
ogtto bear on him that he had
dedebetween financial embar
rassment or advocacy of Tillman, and
as his convictions were of an Anti
P ilinan character, he would not com
iosehis principles: so he sold out
inbmterest in the paper to Mr. Gard
nor, who proclaims his hearty support
;Tmlman and reform. All this sim
ply corroborates our views, that Till
~man is and has been very strong in
thiis county. But we had no idea he
was as strong as he really is. He gains
new strength every day. To think of
5of it: a large, strong, and influential
R Tiflan club in the town of Foreston,
an sd Summer ton likewise for Tillman!
SI this "campaign of education" does
not soon terminate, all opposition to
m.a will disappear. We suppose,
however, there will be a few Anti
Tillinan delegates in the county con
- egion, but there will be only a few.
To-morrow an Anti-Tillmnan confer
nce will be held in Columbia, and
anybody opposed to Tillman is invit
ed to attend. The object apparently
,aimed at is for everybody to come to
geter, get all their heads in a caucus,
~and see if they can't scratch out some
plan to consummate the slogan, 'any
thing to beat Tmlman.' But Tillman
won't be beat. Conferences, however,
are all the fashion now, and by these
conferences we suppose the Anti side
of the house is trying to prepare for
thorough organization. An Anti con
ference is said to have been held in
Manning last Monday. The Tnus
man was not invited nor was he fur
nished with any part of the proceed
igs, but we will wager two cents
that Clarendon sends a straightaut
solid Tillman delegation to Columbia,
Sit matters not how many conferences
are held. In this connection, let it
be. remembered that the sentinels
muabrremain at their posts till the war
is over. The Tillmanites do not need
-so much conference, as we have some

Democratic clubs, nevertheless we
must be cautious and vigilant and not
over confident, and an occasional Till

County Executive Committee Meeting.
The county executive committee met in
the court house last Saturday, at 10.15, and
was called to order by County Chairman
James E. Davis.
The following members were present: .
A. Mills, E. G. Duoose, R. M. McKnight,
J. S. Wilson, C. S. Land, W. D. Gamble, C.
M. Davis, J. S. Cole, J. E. Tindal, Jno. 0.
Brock, and E. D. Hodge.
Mr. Eavis read the call of the State execu
tive committee, and stated that he had call
ed this meeting, in order to reconsider tht
action of the last meeting, as it was nece-s
sary. under this call of the State executive
committee, tW have a county convention at
an earlier date than agred upon.
It was moved that, under this last call of
the State executive committee, the clubs in
this county be organized Saturday, July
19th; delegates be elected Aug. 2d: and the
county convention be held Aug. 9th. This
motion was adopted.
, Col. Brock asked, as a number of the
members of his (Friendship) club would be
absent on the 19th, that his club be allowed
to organize July 12th. On motion this re
quest was granted.
The following rules and regulations, gov
erning the organization of the party in this
county, were then adopted:
At a meeting ot the Democratic Executive
Committee of Clarendon county held on the
4th of July, 1890, the following paper was

By order of Executive Committee.
JAMES E. DAVIS,
J. A. Mn.rs, Chairman.
In reply to a question about reorganiza
tion the chairman ruled that in reorganizing
the old clubs the nanme of no person shall
be retained on the club roll unless by re
quest of each individual member: in other
words that old club rolls shall be thrown
aside, and new rolls made out, the same as
if it were the .organization 'of a vTeWhb.
Jos. F. Rhame, Esq., sent in a letter re
questing, as he would be absent a large part
of the~ime, that his name be withdrawn
from the committee of arrangements. J. S.
Wilson, Esq., was elected in his place.
O'motion of Mr. Tindal the president of
e a club was requested to collect and for
ward by July 21st as much as five cents for
each member on his club roil, for campaign
The committee then adjourned, after one
of the'quietest and most harmonious ses
sions of the executive committee held in
Gen. Stackhouse's Speech.
If the very large number of persons in
town last Friday is any indication of the
public pulse, we would say the people are
thinking more in thuis county than ever be
fore. It was understood that it was to be
an Alliance meeting, and the persons in at
tendance were principally Alliance men. In
order, however, to allow anyone to hear
Gen. Stackhouse's speech, it was decided to
have him speak first, before the Alliance
met, and to invite the public to listen to
At exactly half past eleven o'clock Mr.
James E. Tindal called the meeting to order,
and stated this was a public meeting and
would be so until Gen. Stackhouse had
spoken, after which the county alliance
would hold its regular quarterly meeting.
Mr. Tindal divided the people into six
grand classes, each of which was interde
pendent. The farming interest was the
poorest represented, and the one which the
Alliance was endeavoring to advance and to
raise equal to any other class, and unless
their condition was raised the farmers would
be lowered into a degraded and unrespect
ed class. He spoke for some time, and then
in complimentary terms introduced Gen.
Stackhouse, president of the State Alliance.
Gen. Stackhouse at once proceeded to his
speech and first discussed the sub-treasury
bill, which, while denounced by some, was in
his opinion a good and wise scheme. In 1850
the farmer owned 70 per cent. of the wealth
of the country; in 1800, 50 per cent.; in
1880, 30 per cent.; and now the farmers
owned less than 25 per cent. of the wealth
of the country. The agricultural values of
the country have, also, been constantly de
creasing, and lands and products alike con
tinue decreasing in value. The number of
small farms is constantly decreasing, wvhile
the number of mortgages is increasing.
The farming classes live and dress poorer
than other classes, and receive less for their
labors. The farmer has to live hard and
live with the most rigid economy. High
priced money and low priced farming prod
ucts hurt the farmers more than any high
tariff. The strong. st objection to the sub
treasury bill urged in congress was that 20
per~ cent. was not a sufficient margin to a!
low for fiuctuations in the farm products
market, that these tiuctuations sometimes
amounted to moie than 50 per cent. This
he considered one of the strongest arguments
in favor of the bill, as it showed, to what
disadvantages the farmer was subjected in
placing his crop on the market. Could he
hold this crop a few months, the price would
go up. Prices are always lowest when the
farmer must sell and highest when he must
buy. The saving to the farmers in one
season on one cotton crop alone would far
more than pay for the building of the ware
houses, and as far as the Northwest was
concerned, they were greatly more oppress
ed than we of the South.
The treasury bill is no more unconstitu
it has an advantage in giving a margin of
20 per cent., while the national banking act
gives only 10 per cent. The constitution
gives Congress the right to legislate for the
general welfare. The farmers have nobly
but not wisely hid their wounds and con
cealed their discontent, but by this course
they are surely tending to financial rain.
Those that oppose the bill argue that it is
unconstitutional and class legislation, but
it is not nearly so much so as the national
banking act. It is a thousand times more
for the general welfare, as it is to relieve a
needy and dependent class, but the largest
class in the goveriinment; whereas the bank
ing act is fur only a few comparratively.
The adoption of the sub-treasury selieuie
would of course cheapen money, as it would
remove the power to oppress. It would,
however, do violence to no one, since it
would simply tend to lighten the burden of
Gen. Stackhouse spoke for iarly an
hour, and throughout his speech was atten
tively listened to. His arguments were
strong and forcibly put. Gen. Stackhouse
is an able speaker, but much of the effec
tiveness of his speaking is lost by confining
himself too closely to his manuscript. He
should throw his manuscript aside. The
day was extremely hot, and the close atten
tion paid by the densely packed house was
quite a compliment to Gen. Stackhouse.
The speaking was held in the court house,
and there were present about five hundred
Our notes of the speech are necessarily
brief and incomplete, and by no means do
justice, but our readers will nevertheless
find therein considerable food for thought.
Mr. S. E. Ingram moved that this meeting
endorse the sub-treasury bill. The motion
was unanimously adopted, after which the
The county alliance met in the court
house last Friday at half-past eleven o'clock.
After the regular opening exercises Mr. 31.
L. Donaldson, of Greenville, State business
agent, was introduced to the Alliance.
Mr. Donaldson began his speech by com
menting on the wonderful growth of the
Alliance. It had grown until it was. the
largest organization in the country. It is
still growing, and is doing great good. The
farmer has been so pressed that he has at
last aroused himself, and is now reading,
thinking, and investigating for himself.
The farmers know more, and many have
learned more, the past twelve months than
the preceding twelve years. He thought we
had now got to the point where we could
see brightness ahead, and he believed sub
stantial good would come upon the people.
A financial business system is absolutely
necessary to keep the Alliance together and
working for good. Farmers had no fitan
cial organization till the Alliance was estab
lished. He explained in detail the work
ings of the Exchange, comparing it with
other similar organizations, and showing
the great advantages to be derived there
from. It is not the railroads and money
corporations that are injuring us. He depre
cated that idea. It was the force of circum
stances. If our people were more prosper
ous, had niore money, then we would be
more respected and have more influence,
becoming a mighty power in the land. Let's
stop fussing, and villifying, and abusing
other people, and let us get above that pa
ition where we have to get some merchant
or man with money to '"run" us. If we get
in the pathway of success and accumulate
property, then, and not till then, will we
become a power for influence. He believed
the agricultural interests of dhe South to be
growing, and our prospects for prosperity.
to be bright.
Thie great evil that threatens us is from
the federal government. It is not so much
a financial depression that hurts us, but a
financial extravagance. The State Exchange
is working successfully, is simple in its
plan, and will the coming year show a large
and decided growth. The State Exchange
had already lowered the' prices of standard
goods in every part of the State, anid if con
tinued and properly supported high prices
will soon be a thing of the past. The State
Exchange is a creature of the Sub-Alliance,
and its usefulness depends entirely ou the
patronage of these Sub-Alliances. Co-oper
ation is absolutely necessary.
Mr. Donaldson's speech was interspersed
with numerous anecdotes, and was a clear
and succinct idea of the operation of the
Alliance Exchange. It was listened to ,vith
close attention. All his remarks were con
servative, and we wish every man in the
county could have heard what he had to say.
After Mr. Donaldson's speech the subject
of bagging was discussed. The difficulty
of obtaining cotton bagging was explained,
and at the suggestion of Gen. Stackhouse,
the motion adopted at the last meeting to
use cotton bagging was reconsidered, and
it was agreed to use another kind of bag
ging. Jute bagging will, however, not be
Mr. J. E. Tindal was elected a delegate to
the State Alliance.
The following officers were elected and
installed for the ensuing year:
J. E. Tindal, president; L. H. DesChamps,
vice president; D. J. Bradhami, secretary;
D. R. Chewning, treasurer; Rev. H. W.
Mahoney, chaplain; Dr. I. M. Woods, lec
turer; R. R. Dingle, steward: J. S. Evans,
door-keeper; .J. Elbert Davis, assistant door
The several sub-alliances were requested
to send in their orders for bagging at once.
Mr. Donaldson explained the warehouse
scheme, and a committee of one from each:
sub-alliance was appointed to solicit sub
scriptions for building a county warehouse.
The alliance then adjourned after a long
and pleasant session.

There are many women who are
wholly unfit to do even the lightest of
their household tasks, yet they are
obliged to do them all for want of
means to employ help. Every mo
ment's work must be carefully planned
to save time and strength, and even
then how hard it is to get through
with it all! Then to have it made
doubly bard by careless people who
know little of the physical pAin cauised
by overwork! Is it any wonder that
the overwrought nerves give way,
and the wearv worker scolds? Such
a state of affairs is certainly not con
ducive to sweet temper. The sharp
words may be bitterly regretted and
atoned for by extra attentions during
the rest of the day, and after all wlho
has a right to judge her? If hus
bands would only be a little more
thoughtful, much of home unpleas
antness could be easily avoided. They
will not try to realize half what woman
suflers patiently. There are many
good, thoughtful men, but there are
many more who will see a woman
dragging aloug day after day under
burdens much too heavy for her to
bear. What a fuss there would be
should a woman go into her husband's
office and begin to tumble thiing-s
about in search of a let ter or paper
she may happen to want, and then go
away and leave drawers and boxes in
a tumbled condition ! Yet men will
do that very thing in the honse, and
consider themselves greatly abused if
anything is said to them about it.
When men learn to be as neat about

The readers of the Tnmrs will be pleased
to learn that there is at least one dreaded
disease that science has been able to cure in
all its stages, and that is catarrh. Hall's
catarrh cure is the only positive cure now
known to the medical fraternity. Catarrh
being a constitutional disease, requires con
stitutional treatment. Ill's catarrh cure is
takei internally, acting directly upon the
blood and mucous surfaces of the system,
thereby destroying the foundation of the
disease, and giving the patient strength by
building up the constitution and assisting
niture in doing its work. The proprietors
have so much faith in its curative powers
that they offer ore hundred dollars for any
ease that it fails to cure. Send fur list of;
