FOR STATE SENATOR.
EDIrTo MANNING Tnmsi-Believing that
we should have true and tried advocates of
the great reform movement in the State
House at Columbia this winter, we offer for
the State Senate the name of Maj. L. H.
DESCHAMPS, who is a man of the people,
thoroughly identified with the interests and
sympathies of the masses, and in every re
spect qualified. He is a Christian gentle
man of the highest type, has the courage of
his convictions, is a successful farmer, and
rjoys the confidence of his neighbors, and
' e ask for him the vote of the people at the
ensuing election, subject, however, to the
action of the Democratic party at their
nominating convention or primary election
as may be agreed upon. MAEY VoTERs.

On campaign day in Sumter last
week, after Capt. Tillman made his
speech, Mr. G. I. Lesesne, of Santee,
went to his hotel and presented him
with a pair of cuff buttons. The but
tons were highly polished wild gob
bier spurs mounted on gold, and are
said to be very pretty. Capt. Tillmax
after thanking Mr. Lesesne remarked
that "Clarendon had spurred him on.
The Antis are Weak.
Friendship Democratic club was
regularly reorganized last Saturday
with tu-enty-.eten members, and a part
of these had to be taken from th<
Summrerton and Fulton clubs. The
new club (Panola), sixty-seven strong
which was organized a month ago,
was present to a man, and of course
could have captured the old club, but
they magnanimously agreed to let th<
Antis organize separately and thus se
ure the greatest amount of repre
setation. The Tillman faction is foi
fair play, and will not be found at an:
small tricks. After the Friendshil
,club got organized, and resolved tha
no one shiculd be admitted to mem
bership except by a two-thirds vot
.of the club, they passed resolution

Owing to the sickness of one of our
printers we are thrown a few hours

The Campaign Liar.
Beware the campaign liar who tells
you something he does not /:now to
be true, but says he hears it is true.
The Antis are using every effort pos
sible to defeatthe farmers' movement,
and mony of them will not for a mo
ment hesitate to promulgate what
they believe untrue. When they tell
you of slates, combinations, etc., ask.
fox the author, trace it back, and you
will find notja shadow of truth in it
"The Tillmanites are Radicals and
must be defeated," is their cry, and
they will use any and every means to
carry out their purposes.
Doctor Swamp Picnic.
Last Saturday the Doctor Swamp Alliance
and Democratic club had a joint picnic at
the residence of Mr. A. C. Lee, about five
miles from Foreston, which was attended
by fully three hundred :persons. Every ar
rangement had been made to have things
comfortable. Seats were arranged under
the gin house, but when the hour arrived
for the speaking there were scarcely seats
enough for the ladies, and a great part
of the crowd were forced to stand on the
Mr. J. W. Cole, president of the Doctor
Swamp Alliance, called the meeting to order,
and the exercises were commenced with a
fervent prayer by Mr. Watts; and in a well
timed address Mr. Cole extended a hearty I
welcome in behalf of both organizations.
He said that the alliance and club had join
ed in giving this picnic, and that speakers
had been invited to address them, but that
they would not be confined to matters per
taining to the alliance; if they desired to do
so they could discuss the political situation,
although the people of that community
were hand in hand in their efforts for Till
man and reform, and while anything in fa
vor of Tillman would tend to strengthen
them, yet they were all fully convinced that
B. R. Tillman was the proper man for gov
ernor. He then in a very complimentary
manner introduced Capt. D. J. Bradham as
the first speaker.
Capt. Bradham in a very forcible manner
discussed the issues of the day, and in a
sound and logical argument showed the ne
cessity of standing together. He gave his
reasons for supporting the movement of the
Farmers' Association, and at considerable
length explained the Platform, closing by
expressing the hope of seeing every one of
them in Manning on the 26th inst. Capt.
Bradham's speech was listened to with
rapt attention and was frequently applaud
ed. It was one of his best efforts.
Mr. S. A. Nettles was next introducel,
and his speech was also on the issues of the
day. He advocated the Farmers' Platform,
and especially advocated peace and good or
der on the 26th. He did not want it said
that the Clarendon Tillmanites made any
attempt to -howl down a speaker, but that
he hoped Clarendon would be the banner
county for peace and good order.
Mr. L. Appelt was also called upon. He
stated that it was unnecesary for him to re
iterate his position as he believed every
body knew that he was heart and soul in
favor of the movement now led by Ben Till
man. He advised thorough organization:
and harmonious work with each other. The:
opposition are fully equipped for the fray,
and unless the farmers were also, this would
be a time when the minority would whip
out the majority. The day had passed
when men could be led about, and if there
were any persons who could not support the
Farmers' Platform and Ben Tillman now
was the- time to-ma~ke it known and have
their names stricken from the roll, but if
they were in earnest in their efforts to sup
port Tillman and the platform it would beI
isulting to their manhood for even an at
tempt to be make to lead them from their
Mr. Harvey Mitchum followed in a happy
speech, expressing his approval of seeing
the people of his home once more asserting
their rights and manhood.
The president of the meeting then ex
tended an invitation to any person who de
sired to make a speech against the move
ment, but this invitation was not re
Capt. R.RI. Hudgins was'then introduced,
and in a dispassionate manner he stated his
position and dwelt specially on advocating
the 'mprovement of the free school system.
Mr. L. L. Wells was called for and ac
knowledged the compliment by rising and
asking to be excused.
Mr. Cole then introduced the last speaker,
Mr. Joseph Sprott, Sr., whom he alluded to
as one of the fathers of this county. When
this grand old gentleman came forward
love and veneration was depicted on every
countenance, and he was received with a
round of applause. He addressed the audi
ence in a very pleasant manner, and closed
his remarks by asking the audience to .join
him in giving three cheers for Tillman,
which they did heartily. He then asked
those favoring Tiliman to stand, and every
man rose with the exception of two, to
which Mr. Sprott bowed his acknowledge
ments and said "Tillman is elected."
As soon as the speaking was over the
crowd were invited to dinner, which was
spread on tables arranged for the occasion
under the trees, and we venture the asser
tion that this dinner was never excelled by
any picnic dinner ever given in this county.
Everything that could temnpt a hungry appe
tite was there in great abundance: chickens,
barbecued mutton and pig, hams, vegeta
bles, rice, pies, cakes, puddings, coffee, iced
lemonade-but why try to enumerate ? There
were four beautifully iced cakes on the ta
ble, each bearing a motto: "Tillman and Re
form," "The Broken Ring," "United we
Stand," "Divided we Fall."
Mr. John Barnes, president of the Doctor
Swamp Democratic Club, called a meeting
of his club for the purpose of letting them
know that next Saturday was the <iay for
the club to elect officers, and invited signa
tures to his club roll. Several persons en
rolled. He then requested Mr. J. H. Tim
mons, the secretary of the club, to address
theft, which he did in a ringing and sensi
ble speech. He wanted it distinctly under
stood that the members of this club were
true blue Democrats, and no one but a Dem
ocrat was wanted on their roll; that they
were men and would not be influenced to
go against their convictions, and the party
who would have the audacity to try to bribe
or influence them would meet with a scorn
This picnic was one of the most pleasant
we have ever attended, and everything went
off as happily as a wedding feast. Capt.
Jos. Sprott voiced the sentiment of all pres
-ent, when just before leaving he said "Iam
glad I came: I have had a very pleasant

SANDY GRovE, J 14.--A meeting
was called for the purpose of reorgan

club, but after the call was made we

A large crowd attended the meet
ing in Sumter last Wednesday from
this section. The fuss and confusion
beggars description. If the confusion
at the building of Babel could beat
it I am not surprised at the people
forgetting their language. Such meet
ings are a disgrace to the political
honor of the State.
Lieut. Cabaniss and family are
boarding at Mrs. Ingram's, and will
be here for the summer. We are glad
to welcome the Lieut. and family back
to the village.
The Friendship Democratic club
met on last Saturdlay evening to or
ganize. After a long parley between
the straightouts and 'the Tillmanites
an agreement was come to: the Till
manites withdrew from the old club
and will organize a Panola club on
next Saturday. The old club organ

dent; A. L. Lesesne, vice president;
A. D. Rhame, secretary and treasurer.
The following resolutions were pass

that the State administration since 1876 bas

It was my good fortune to attend a
festival at the Panola Academy the

night for every one who desired to
participate in the pleasures of life.

On the 12th I attended the reorgan
ization of the old Friendship Demo
cratic club at Panola. Efforts were
made to unite the two factions: the
Tilman and Anti-Tillman. The Pa
nola club, lately formed, was out sixty
seven strong. No agreement could
be reached, hence the Panola retains
its present organization. Friendship
reorganized with twenty-seven men.
This part of the county is largely Till
mau. Mr. C. R. Felder, president of
the Panola (Tillman) club made quite
a lengthy speech. It had the right
ring; the speaker reviewed the past,
contrasted the present, dealing some
heavy blows to the Anti-Tillman fac
Much comment has been made on
the Sumter meeting. It was the most
riotous and disgraceful affair I ever
attended. This is a campaign of ed
ucation, but the Anti-Tiliman men
don't want enlightenment. They are
responsible for all confusion that day
at Sumter. I regret there is so much
bad feeling engendered. It seems to
be gaining strength over here; men
speak rashly, entirely unbecoming
about Capt. Tillman, use disrespect
ful language about those of us who
propose to see things for ourselves.
This ought not to be so, you never
will get all men to think alike; all men
will not vote alike; free speech is one
of the guardians of our liberties; the
right of suffrage belongs to every cit
izen of the IUnited States: to exercise
that right fully is the duty of every
The C. S. & N. Railroad put an ex
cursion train on the road on the 9th
with certain promises. I suppose the
passengers aboard numbered five or
six hundred. Every delay possible
was made by the managers of the
train. It is charged in common con
versation that this delay was made to
prevent the Tillmanites from reaching
Sumter on schedule time. What sur
prised us more the train was stopped
for three quarters of an hour on a long
trestle. CoL. Fowler should explai
why this was done. He is charged
with having it done; the people de
mand of him an explanation. It is
due an enraged community who have
a right to this explanation: they pai
their fare; the train was due at Sum
ter by his own appointed time but
failed to reach there on time.
It is said that several of our citi
zens have combined to prevent Col
Earle from speaking at Manning; this
I believe to be false in every particu
lar. We know Col. Eaile's strength

ty; the people have their eyes open
this battle of Rosebecque the ori
flamme was displayed by Sir Peter de
Villiers who bore it. Some say, as
they find it written, that it was never
before displayed against Christians,
and that it was a matter of great
doubt during the march whether it
should be displayed or not. Howev
er, the matter having been fully con
sidered, they resolved to display it,
because the Flemaings followed opin
ions contrary to that of Pope Clement,
and called theimselves Urbanists; for
which the French said they were re
bellious and out of the pale of the
church. This was the principal cause
why it had been displayed in Flan
ders. Proof was made of its virtues
at this time, for all the morning there
was so thick a fog that with difficulty
could they see each other, but the
moment the Knight had displayed it
and raised his lance in the air, this
fog instantly dispersed and the sky
was as clear as it had been during
the whole year.
The Lord d'Estonnenort told me
that he saw, as well as several others,
when the oriflamme was displayed
and the fog dispersed, a white dove
fly many times round the King's bat
talion. When it had made several
circles, and the engagement was about
to begin, it perched on one of the
King's banners. This was considered
a fortunate omen. The King of
France gained the victory.
The belief that the oriflamme or
oriflame had .been sent from heaven;
that the-fog dispersed because it was
displayed; and a white dove perched
on one of the King's banrers, was
due to the superstition and imagina
tion of the geople of that age.
This battle was fought, and the ac
count of it written during the dark
ages or middle ages, the period of
time between the fall of the Roman
Empire and the Renaissance or re
vival of learning. When knowledge,
religious and political, was confined to
Romish priests and cloisters; when
the art of printing was not known,
and the light of the Reformation had
not shined upon the world; when
might made right, and war and plun
der was the business of kings, dukes,
and princes. .r. M. n.

Salem Solid for Tillman.
EDIToR MANNIXG TDm:-Salem's
drought of three weeks or more came
to a close recently with a series of re
freshing showers, not without, howev
er, leaving its blighting imprint upon
the crops generally. With anything
like average seasons from now on
there will be at least two thirds of a
corn crop made, with the heaviest
cotton crop in this section's history.
We have been mingling recently to
a considerable extent with the people
holding the various shades of political
coloring, and find that the Braterlites
are gradually assuming a decided au
relian hue, and we confidentially ex

complete evolution with a general
shaking off of tails.

If straightoutism could but see they
are invading the rights and privilegs
of the citizens of every county by
these persistent efforts to force upon
our people their political notions and
methods, and by trying to force our
people to adopt measures calculated
to oppose their wishes.
Let Col. Earle keep his followers
from invading every county, as was
done in Sumter: this in my opinion
will give peace. Will the Peniten
tiary, the South Carolina University,
and Haskell attempt to run it over
Clarendon as lie tried to do at Sumter?
A candidate must see his inevitable
doom when he has to bolster up his
strength wherever he speaks by im
porting men and boys from all parts
of the State. This seems to be the
way that Earle gets his following.
Clarendon county has a majority
for Tillman, and there will be no dis
turbance at Manning on the 26th,

as their choice. 'rox.
"The People are Misicuiided Fools."
EDITon Mxxixa Tuims:-If the
grand army of reformers who are
bearing the victorious Tillman ban
ners on to the sea needed one word
of cheer it was abundantly furnished
in the mad antics of those pure and
disinterested patriots who again met
in Columbia on last Thursday to de
vise more desperate remedies and
measures to "save the State." It now
appears that the free and uninter
rupted flow of public pap for fourteen
years in a certain carefully guarded
channel has so inflated and developed
the imbibers that in their now im
mense corporosity and egotism they
constitute the State, and to save the
dear old commonwealth it is essential
they be given life tenure of office.
What a disgusting spectacle is the po
iltical death-throe of these perpetual
office holders! How hard they die!
While the conference was not com
posed as a whole of the office holders
they were nevertheless there in the
interest of and at the earnest solicita
tion of these gentry as put forth by
their mouth-piece, "the great mogul"
at Columbia. Note too the temper and
attitude of these would-be dictators
when they had assembled. The first
speech after the installation of officers
was delivered by a Broad street Char
leston lawyer, full of blood, thunder,
defiance, and insult. He swore that the
sovereign will of the people of the
State as now being expressed in thun
der tones for Tilllman as their chief
executive should never be fulfilled.
The clearly defined choice of three
fourths of the voters of the State for
their next governor set at defiance by
the powers that be. The News and
Courier declared that this escape of
Broad street gas fairly enthused the
faithful, and the meeting went wild:
the hoary headed senators, the ring,

pending fate so near and certain, clam
bered upon chairs and frantically
tossed their hats in the air. The nieet
ing, therefore, by their action, enthu
siastically endorsed this revolutionary
declaration, and has thus served time
ly notice upon us. We will be certain
to furnish them the occasion, and we
defy them to try it.
Being so long and loudly applaud
ed, this Broad street Demosthenes
loses his head, and insultingly declares
that he and his brother patriots are
fighting an enemyi unscrupulous and
Was ever a grosser insult thrown
in the teeth of a party ? who have not
deserved it, and should promptly re
sent it by holding the Hon. Joseph W.
Barnwell, of Charleston, to speedy
Now, sir, in contrast with this bom
bast, which clearly reveals the animus
of our opponents, let us recall the
loyal and patriotic words of the heroic
Tillman. He declared in his address
to the March convention that this was
purely a family quarrel; that the fight
would be made strictly within the
party lines; and that he who received
the nomination for governor would
receive his hearty and unqualified sup
port. This he has continuously re
peated from the rostrum, and I have
yet to know a Tillmanite but that
swears eternal allegiance to the party
and an enthusiastic support of the
September convention candidate for
gov~rnor. As opposed to this fealty
and adherence to party hear the
moans and bickerings of the Antis.
The mayor of Columbia says he will
leave the State upon Gov. Tillman's in
auguration; the editor of the News and
Courier prefers a return to Republican
ism, so reported; and King Joseph, of
Broad street, Charleston, summarily
disposes of the whole matter by
swearing he shall not be inaugurated
But, sir, with the glow of an as
sured victory already pervading our
being, and with the magnanimity of
brave conquerors filling our hearts,
Iwe have already forgiven and will
soon forget these undemoc~ratic, un
brotherly, and ungenerous speeches.

Enrron: MIAxxa Trinm:-At a po
litical campaign meeting lately held
in Columbia, S. C., R1ev. Ellison Ca
pers, who commanded a regiment and
attained the rank of brigadier general
in the Confederate army, said, "Jim
Tillman wvas the oriflamme of my reg
The word oritlamme was used met
aphorically, and in order to realize
fully the compliment paid, its original
meaning must be understood. It will
then be seen that no higher praise
could be given by a military officer to
a private soldier of his command.
'I find the following in the chroni
cles of Sir John Froissart, who wrote
in the 14th century. He is describing
the battle of Rosbecque, fought on
pIounr. de Or, the Thursday before
Advent, November 27th, 1:382, be
'tween the King of France and the
Flemings led by Philip von Artaveld.
The orifiamme was a sort'or ganfanon
or red pennon fixed to the end of a
lance. It was a sacrcd banner, care
fully preserved, of a red color, and
had the name of St. Dionysius on it.
It was never called out but on the
most urgent occasions, when the king
himself was present, and displayed
solely against heretics. It was a most
excellent banner, and had been sent
down from heaven with great mys
tery, and is of much comfort in the
