THE MANNING TIES
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEBNESDAY, AUGUST 6, 1890.
This political campaign has been a
hard and cruel one, in which friend
has been pitted against friend, broth
er against brother, father against son.
The fight has been, on the one hand,
to-retain a tenure of office held for a
number of years, and, on the other
side, to infuse by means of new men
and new measures a new lease of life in
to an old body nearly paralized from in
action. Each side has produced lead
ers worthy of the other's steel, al
though from the outset the odds were
fearfully against the regulars-those
who deserve the name from having
held office regularly for so many
Things have been said and done on
both sides that were wrong, but es
pecialy has this wrong doing been
prominenton the Anti side. Naturally,
like a dam about to be deprived of
her whelps, they have used every pos
sible means to defeat the Reformers,
and in some instances very question
able mans have been employed.
The church is a holy institution,
and its consecrated ministers should
never descend to the level of politics,
as known now of days. Every man,
be he priest or layman, is entitled to
his opinion and the right to freely
expresa such, but, as in all things, a
minister should be careful and con
siderate in expressing his views, so as
not to offend. As we said above ev
my man who has an opinion has the
ight to express it, and we have great
er respect for a man who, when called
upon, fearlessly gives his views on
any sabject, but may a kind Provi
aence deliver us from the blatant,
proselyting, demogogical preacher
*ho would dare to invade the sacred
desk, for the purpose of making a po
litical speech obnoxious to the avow
ed principles of a large number of
his own congregation. And yet,
from the depths of our heart we
are sorry to say, there are such to be
found in our own State, men who
have so far forgotten the principles of
decency and godliness as to denounce
Tifman from the pulpit. The Antis
many of them have in almost every
way shown a despicable spirit of in
tolerance unworthy the education and
intelligence they clanm for themselves,
Two weeks ago, because the Southern
Chrisian Advocate, the organ of the
Methodist Church in this State, con
tained in its news columns a few con
densed items stating for whom cer
tain county conventions had nominat
ed delegates, and, as it happened,
because all the State political news
was favorable to Tillman, and the Ad
-vocate had truthfully stated it as it
was, some rabid Antis flew into a
mountain of rage and threatened to
atop their paper. Such intolerance!
Not a word had been said about poli-I
tics inthe editorial column, and thei
editor had not even prepared this
news summary, yet these intolerant
Antis threatened to boycott the pa
per unless it remained silent or else
edabout it. Dr.iKirkland, the ed
itor of the Advacate, is a pure, noble,
intelligent minister, of too exalted
character to become a blatant politi
cian, but with hib large and liberal
views, we believe that were he to take
issue in the contest he would be on
the side of Tillman and reform. And
so do we believe about our honored
- ishop Duncan. His son, a graduate
of Wotford College, and a gentleman
of wealth, intelligence, and family in
fluence, the chairman for several years
of the Democratic party in Union
county, is an ardent supporter of Ben
Tillmnan and the farmers' movement.
A very large number of the purest
and ablest and most intelligent peo
ple in the State favor Tillman for
governor, and yet some of these Antis,
some of them with scarcely an old
cornfield education and but little
*horse sense, the more ignorant the
more intolerant have the impudence
to say they are not able to see how
sneh and such an intelligent gentle
man can support Tillman. They are
-excusable for saying such for they
don't know any better.
Companisons are odious, but sup
pose that on campaign day in this
place the ladies of any one of the
churches in town had met in front of
their church, with a Tillman banner
---sspended from the lamp post in front
of the church, for the purpose of do
in .honor to Tillman as he passed
whtwould have been the result ?
Such a howl of indignation would
have been raised that an outsider
would have believed the unpardona
ble sin had been committed. And
yet, had the same thing been done for
Earle or Bratton, as we understand it
was done at one of our churches, not
a word would have been said against
it, for, except an Anti, no man, with
any charity in his soul, would do
nounce any such mild demonstration.
Any preacher does right publicly or
privately to endorse Earle or Bratton,
but if he is in favor of Tillmian and
the farmers' movement he is threat
ened with dire results.
We have drawn no fancy picture;
we are not writing in unkindness;
but coolly and deliberately we have
penned our honest convictions.
We regret that our columns were
so crowded last week that we could
not then comment on the misrepre
sentations of the News and Courier
on the Manning campaign meeting.
Almost everybody in this county was1
present at that meeting, and they can
easily judge for themselves. First,
we give without comment the head
lines of the News and Courier and of
The Newvs -and Courier says:
Tillman in a corner-Forced to promise
to work for a primnary-Col. Earle pins the
geat bamboozler down to a promisetog
before the August convention and pleadfo
a primary-No disorder at Manning after
all the blustering talk-The banners of the
traightoustog seceb Gen. Brat
The World says:
A quiet meeting-No rowdyism mars the
day at Manning-Tillmnan and Earle have a C
passae at arms-A large gathedring of Dem-t
otin, the majori ty of whom favor the nom- t
instiom of Tmlman for Governor-An appa 1
to the ladies by the "'handsome man" eh
fares of the day.
Thel News and Courier begins its
account of the meeting thus:
Ctrhar t. the@ enpetation! of all the
,andidates and the citizens of Clarendon
mcunty, the campaign meeting yesterday at
Manning was one of the most orderly yet
Now that correspondent simply
drew on his imagination in saying
"contrary to the expectations." There
were some people, in and out of the
county, who anticipated trouble, and
a few that longingly hoped for
trouble, but the large majority of our
citizens had individually pledged
themselves to preserving order on that
occasion, and we know a great many
of them believed with us that we
would have a quiet meeting. So con
fident were we that the meeting would
be quiet that when the question of
appointing a large number of police
men was mentioned to us, we at once
declared it to be utterly useless, and
that four or five extra policemen
would be sufficient. The Intendant
agreed with us, but in case of a possi
ble difficulty, it being rumored that a
large number of Sumter and Colum
bia "roughs" would atiend, the coun
cil decided to appoint fifteen special
police for the day. Our estimate of
the good sense and gentlemanly prin
ciples of the people of Clarendon
proved correct: there wasn't a dis
turbance in the town during the day.
'rue, there were several hundred vis
itors here from adjoining counties,
representing both factions of the par
ty, but they each and all conducted
themselves in a gentlemanly manner.
As concerning the rumor of pulling
Col Earle from the stand we doubt if
there were a half dozen men, good,
bad, or indifferent, that for a moment
entertained so discourteous an act.
Col. Earle is a personal friend of too
many people in this county for such
to be contemplated, and we dcubt if
there is a man in this county that
would have attempted such a thing.
If such a thing had been attempted
the Tillmanites, these misguided be
ings, would themselves have instantly
prevented it. The Tillman men ;
this county have rc grievances against
Col. Earle: they birply are on the
other side of his fence.
The News and Courier after con
ceding that this county is for Tillman,
kindly and charitably excuses the
"straightouts," on the ground of "neg
ligent of their duty." This is the
unkindest cut of all. The Antis cer
tainly have been remarkably diligent
in their efforts- in this county, and we
would say they were proportionately
more largely represented here at the
campaign meeting. Men seldom work
more earnestly and enthusiastically
for the success of a cause than have
our friends, the Antis, during the past
As for the unkind insinuation about
the negroes present, we suppose there
were one hundred and fifty, and of
this number about a dozen Demo
crats, equally divided between Earle
Here is another paragraph:
The meeting was attended by a very large
number of ladies of pronounced straightout
This is a delicate matter, but from
what can be learned, we would say
the ladies were equally divided. One
important thing in this connection, we
never heard of a lady in that crowd
so far forgetting her ladylike charac
ter and principles as to make any
slurring remarks about the personal
defects and appearances of Earle or
Bratton, and it is a question if a true
lady or gentleman ever slurs at the
physical defects of another.
That the Earle badges were in a
majority is simply incorreet: among
the voters there were two or three
Tillman badges to one Earle badge.
As to 'Iillmnan being forced into a
corner, CoL Earle turning to Capt.
Tillman asked him if he would advo
cate a primary in the State conven
tion. Tillman promptly and distinct
ly replied that he would. He had be
fore made the same promise to Earle.
Where is the force ? It certainly re
quires very torturous sophistry to
make such a manly and candid reply
appear as a forced promise.
In Monday's paper, in condensing
the news of the preceding day's pa
per, we find this, which our readers
map themselves judge as to what is
The Clarendon county campaign meeting
a~t M1anning on Saturday was a victory for
And now in conclusion, in all kind
ness but in defense of the county of
Clarendon and of the candidate whom
the majority of the people favor we
say it is too small for a great paper
like the News and Courier to conde
scend to such a plan of journalism.
Let justice be done; let truth be the
cud-sill and the granite walls of the
ntire construc'hn; and let this great
paper so change its course and policy
bhat our people shall cease to feel or
fear that almost every article in it is a
isrepresentation, twisted and con
erted agreeable to the ends and pur
oses of evil and designing politi
WYE ARE CONSISTENT.
The Truss has never changed its
pinion in regard to Tiliman and
:he farmers' movement, but stands to
lay exactly where it has always stood.
[t is not with us a question of expe
liency, but of truth and principles.
We reproduce below an editorial that
e wrote just two years ago, and
which sounds very much as if we had
ust written it. It was published Aug.
9, 188. Compare this and anything
lse we have written on the subject,
nd it will be found that we have been
~horoughly consistent. We have al
ways advocated the farmers' interests,
td expect ever to continue in the
;ame channel. If at any time, how
ver, we should believe that the farm
t are taking a bachward track, no
e in the State would sooner sound
general alarm. Here was our posi
ion two years ago:
THAT MAN TILLMAN.
On our first page wilt be found accounts
f the campaign meetings at Sumter and
'lorence. These accounts are from the
ews and Courier, and written by a mtan
rho hates Tillman. We are no advocate of
Ellman, though we admire many things in
he man and some things he advocates; and
specially do we admire in this free country
reedom of speech. Tillman and a number
f the Chester citizens disgraced themselves
n Chester in insulting the Governor of the
tate-Tillman in saying he had no respect
or Gov. Richardson, and the citizens in
eling to the Governor to sit down. Till
an, however, immediately retracted what
.0 said, but the disgraceful stigmia still rests
n Cheater. Tillman has been at most of:
ie campaign meetings, and comes out of
hem with considerable glory. By his man-i
conduct he has won the confidence and
espet of the people, and while they still
onsider him an unsafe leader and wanting
a judgment, et be has conclusively proven
imself to be a man of true principles, a
trave man, and withal a staunch Democrat,
bully-like, attempted Monday, in Black
ville, to tbre him, on the speakers' staid, to
a hand to hand fglit, but Tillman refused,
saying ladies were present, but he would
give him an opportunity later. This agita
tion of public affairs will do good, and can
do no harm. Tilbihan is one of the smart
est men in the State, only he lacks jndg
ment to balance his great zeal.
In another column we publish a
letter from Congressman G. W. Dar
gan, in which he declines again to be
a candidate for Congress. Mr. Dar
gan has been in Congress for ten
years and has proved himself an able
and honest representative of his dis
trict. He retires with the well done
and best wishes of the State.

WASHING WOOLEN GooDs.-So many
young housekeepers complain of the
shrinking of flannel underwear, wool
en stockings, and children's woolen
dresses, that it would be well for all
such to learn how these articles should
be washed, even if it is not necessary
that the housewife should do the work
A bright clear day, should be se
lected for washing woolen clothes.
Before beginning, shake the gar
ments to be washed, vell, to free them
from dirt and lint, and use soft, clean
water-not too hot, but warm. Soap
should never be rubbed on woolen
goods, as it shrinks and hardens the
fabric; even soap suds is injurious.
Warm water, with a tablespoonful of
Pyles' Pearline added to every three
gallons, will be found excellent for
flannels, particularly articles of deli
cate colors, that would be liable to
fade if washed with soap.
In washing woolen or merino cloth
ing, never rub them on the wash
board, or with the hands, but cleanse
them by drawing them up and down
through the hands-in the water.
When clean, ring them as dry as pos
sible, then rinse in a tub of water
the same temperature as the suds.
A little pearline added to the rinse
water will soften the woolen articles.
Shake each piece well. Shake it out
in proper shape to hang smoothly on
the line, in the shade. The washing
should be done early in the morning,
so the garments will dry before night.
The quicker they are dried the better
they will look.
In turning woolen goods, after they
are dried, take them from the line,
spread them out carefully on an iron
ing board, wring a clean cloi.h out of
clear tepid water, and lay over the ar
ticle, then iron with a very hot iron
until dry. Continue this until the
garment is all ironed; garments witb
seams-such as pants-must have the
seams pressed out first.
A coat of varnish will make an oil
cloth look brighter and wear longer.
Salt dissolved in alcohol, will re
move spots of grease from cloth.
Cups and saucers stained with tea,
may be made bright again by rub
bing them with damp salt.
Use a coarse sponge for washing
windows-a newspaper for polishing
Lamp chimneys should never be
washed. Breathe on them and polish
with a soft linen cloth or tissue paper.
To remove sewing machine oil, wet
the spots with spirits of turpentine,
and wash out with cold water and

To my political friends, gentlemen:--Tell

those who would force upon us an ignorant,
huimiliating, and ionopoliz'ng legeneracy.

with radicalisi. Yes, and every one of
th-iji fmnd out to their sorrow, when quite
too late, that fanaticism (the cuamron ene
my of man) is the foundation of monopo
lies, boycottings, strife, and revolution. We
might say to a brother Democrat or a patri
otic Republican in the language of another:
"Brother, brother, we are both in the
wrong." But to the heartless radical wc
would point with indignant scorn, and ap.
ply to his disgusting creed this apt senti

whicL 1., of such paraiinnt importance to
the Southern States at this present juncture
of time. You can trust them if You will.
but let me tell vou the future will be sure to
remind you of that which I declare to you
to-day. Keep the goats away from the sheep,
and all will yet be well. I tell you that the
"weal or woe" of the Southern States de
pends entirely upon the strength of our na
tional Democracy. Let us see to it then that
every organization (be it business or 1;o.
tital) has none within its sacred fold that
are not. jffersonian Democats. The only
honorable, Iahk, nl in st "rule of action" for
Democrats to fellow is simply this: Down
with the radicalsanl their infernal uioneyed
combinations, nursed and fed by the pi'c'
tective tariff, that they may keep the, poor
so dependent, as that they can easily con
trol their votes, and thereby hold on to of
fice and to national authority. Gentlemen,
open your . ves, and look this tariff mon
ster in the face. The ultimate effects of
moneyed combinations upon the political
and pecuniary rights of the poor tre indeed
too frightful to contemplate. I mean pra
tective tariff combinations. For without the
assistance of the protective tariff combina
tions can be so checkmated by kindred com
binations and other different vocations in
life as that one dollar in a poor man's hand
will be worth qinite as much as two under
the protective system. Combinations when
protected by a tariff law become not only
oppre;sive, but they create confusion by the
poverty they have recklessly erected. Don't
von see that the radicals at the North under
stand their unholy political card'playing
quite too well to differ upon any subject that
wonld interfere with their power as a unit in
politics ! Our Demiocratic duty then is to
checkmate these political interlopers by
using our best efforts (not against Diemo
crats) to make a unit of American Demoe
racy. By no other method whatever can
these me'ddlesomue people he taught good
manners enougi.h to make them mind their
own business and let the South alone. We
can differ from and ibe respectful to Dei-o
crats at the saine time. Bt we should
nlever give our Northern tarii worshipers a
I chance to profit by our mistakes. Direct
taxation and free trade would relieve the
piorr, administer j ustice to the rich, and
add to the wealth, happiness, and pr'osper
ity of our wvh< le country.
Gen. B3ratton has toy best wishes, and
will get nmy vote sure. I do not occupy a
scat on the sie of the DIncocratic hense
wvhere sit Mr. T1ilhman andl his friends. .Sut
if he should be nominated1 by the Septem

good Democrat in South Carolina. Just let
Ellery M. Brayto'n dare to make a track in
the field of polities against Mr. TIillnian or
any other Demoucrat in South Carolina, if he
wants to feel the weight of onr united
D~emocracy. Mr. Tillman is asu much against
boycottings andl monopolies as J. am. Read
his Greenville specch if you demand the
evidence. What said Mr. Tillman at Ridge
way ? He said just this: "We have but one
party. We dare have but or e." I searcely
think Elecry M1. Brayton and his followers
understand our true situatiion. "A soft an
swer tur-neth away wrath" among good Demi
oerats, but no words catn touch the hearts of
radicals. If the radicals take Mr. Tillmuan
and his friends to be made up of such stuff
as they are they will lear'n better in dne
time. ~Some ot' my warmest friends are
with Mr. 'Tilhaain -hand and heart."
In the "New York Weekly Tribune, We'd
nesday, -July 2, 1s20," I read this ,vonder'
ful misatatement with scorn and disdain:
"-The demand of a large club heretofore
Democratic that Tillman shall i-un as an
independent if he fails to receive the nomi
nation for gover-nor from the Demiocratie
convention." .If such were the ease no
ne'wspape'r maan would have been ac-quaint
ed of the fact. In the next place, Mr. T1ill
man would not be any~ more popiular in
South Carolina under such a stigma than is
the editor wljo woul publish such an im
possibiliiv'. I would not have noticed the
misstatenient at all wvere it not the impera
tive duty of ev'ery Democrat to defend a
brother Demiocrat, however .vide apart may
be their views and opiniorns. And since I
have been informed that Elfery M1. Blrayton
is looking out for otlice, I guess the misstate
ment was circulated for the purpose of di
viding the Democracy of South C'arolina. If
any of my friends wh'ose political views
harmoniz.e with muine think I am singing to
the tune of "-aceoon on a rail,' I shall vote
with them ''anyway."
Poverty of bank or- people bring seririus
