THE RI1 RULES.
In the Florence congressional con
vention last week a resolution was
introduced condemning in very strong
terms the action of Governor Rich
ardson in appointing so few Tillman
men as commissioners of. election,
when this faction of the Democratic
party is so largely in the majority,
and also for having, contrary to the
precedent heretofore established, ig
nored the Democratic county chair
men in making these appointments.
The editor of this paper strongly
opposed the resolutions and did not
muchfvlor the substitute. He rec
ognized the fact that Governor Rich
ardson was playing a small part in
the political arena, and was simply
acting as "the ring" dictated. He
had a perfect right to make these ap
pointments without consultation with
any Democrat in the State, and if he
chose to insinuate by his partisan ac
tion that the Tillman faction of this
State were not true and tried Demo
crats, and if he did not care to con
suit with the recognized heads of the
Democracy in the several counties in
making his appointments, even if we
did consider it small and unworthy
the Governor of the commonwealth,
et we recognized his right to so act,
- and were unwilling that the condem
nation of the Democracy of the sixth
congressional district should be put
As far as Clarendon is concerned,
while he ignored regular Democratic
precedent in not consulting with the
cumnty chairman, yet, if our informa
tion is correct, he did consult with as
purea Democrat as lives in the State,
and the persons appointed are all
good Democrata But in Clarendon
county there is not a ghost of a chance
of a split: we have no mongrel-inde
pendent radicals here: but in other
counties, where a split was any way
imminent every man appointed, so
we are told, is an Anti. It simply
shows how bard "the ring" dies, and
even when in the last ditch they are
still trying to start a mine under the
old Democratie bulwarks.
But for all this, we have respect for
the dignity of the governor's chair,
and were unwilling that the conven
'tion should conden~n him.
In another column will be found the
- 'action of the State convention, and
the governor's reply. These resolu
tions were iln-timed. The work had
been done, and "the ring" would not
~ermit him to undo it.
The opening -wedge to split the
Democratic log has been driven by
S. Poroher Smith, of Berkeley. It was
he who rendered valuable service to
the Democracy of that county; it was
he who led the Democratic forces to
-victory, and seized the county govern
ment from the hands of a horde of
bilack politicins. When this service
~sredered by him the whole State
acnwledged his valor, and looked
upon S. Porcher Smith as a patriot.
The people of Berkeley appreciating
his services elected him to one of her
most lucrative offces, and he has
-served them for years; but as time
zDoed on the people concluded to
have a change in the management of
n~ot only State offiers, but in .some
S.indtace county offcers as well, and
Berkeley is one of the counties where
such a feeling existed.
When this feeling presented itself
MIt Smith exhibited himself in his
true spirit, and because he saw him
self about to be invited to step down
and out, his patriotism, his love of
counryhispolitical principles, are
,trampled under. foot, and he proves
'beyond all doubt that the extent of
his love of 'country, patriotism, and
Democracy, was the length of his of
This patriot, it is claimed, stands
ready to sell his people for a mess of
negro votes, and to form a combina
tion with the Republican party to de
feat the regular Democratic ticket
that isto be put before the voters of
Berkeley. When Mr. Smith was
fightng Tillmanism in his county the
New and Courier did everything in
its power to aid the Smith faction,
but now since this faction has turned
out to be independents (and in the
language of Wade Hampton "an in
dependent is worse than a Radical")
the News and ourier is conspicuous
ly silent on the conduct of Mr. Smith
and-be few destructive co-workers.
The News and Courier claims to be
a true Democratic paper. It did all
in its power to defeat Tillman, but
failed. Now they should work ear
nestly for the success of the Demo
cratic cause. Then, is the News and
Courier doing its duty towards the
Democracy by closing its eyes to the
conduct of a few white men who are
about to be kicked out of offce in
Berkeley? Why is it that the edit
orial columns of that paper are not
-directed towards wiping out the split
in Berkeley, and electing astraightout
true blue Democratic ticket, without
any mixture of Brayton-nigger-spleen
,The Democratic executive commit

most earnest manner not to let divis

full of patriotic advice, and it to be
hoped that it will have the desired ef
fect. This isno timefor men toal
low petty differences to enter the
body politic, as we have an enemy
lurking around in our midst ready
and anxious to catch at anything that
tends to divide us. We hope that
the true Democrats of Berkeley will
stand to their posts of duty, and
frown down any attempt that might
be made to gratify the spleen of some

Clarendon appreciates the honor.
Hon. J. J. Hemphill was yesterday
at Rock Hill unanimously re-nomi
Lated for congress from the fifth con
gressional district. There were thirty
nine delegates in the convention, and
of this number only nine were op
posed to him.
The State convention met last Wed
nesday, and quietly did its work, ad
journing next morning at 6.20, after
an all night's session. A full State
ticket was nominated, a platform of
principles adopted, and a new consti
tution adopted. Judge A. C. Haskell
was the only bolter, and no one felt
aggrieved at his action.
It is reported from Republican
sources that Mr. Junius H. Evans,
editor of the Marion Star, will be a
candidate for congressional honors, in
opposition to CoL E. T. Stackhouse.
Mr. Evans is Edmund H. Deas's can
didate, and Deas says that he himsell
will not become a candidate this year.
Mr. Evans is an Anti Democrat.
Col. Earle has taken a very peculiar
stand. He has, it is true, been over
-whelmingly defeated, but that is only
what was expected; and now every
true Democrat in the State is amazed
not to see him accept his defeat in
good faith and counsel unity apd
harmony. He does not say he will
run on an independent ticket, yet he
leaves the gap open for him to do so.

ism, Mahoneism, and Radicalism are
synonymous terms; but it is very
strange we have seen no such expres
sions the past month. Does it mean
that, after all, the Tillmanites are the
real Democrats, and that the Antis,
"them fellers" in whom all Democratic
wisdom is centered, are to be the Ma
hones of South Carolina? We have
no Mahones in Clarendon, nor will
we have any; but how about Sumter,
and Florence, and Berkeley, and pos
sibly some other counties? Any fac
tion that appeals to the negro in this
campaign is worse than a Radical-it
We are very anxious to see the
Democracy of Sumter county solidi
fied, and we have the assurance of one
of the most prominent and influential
Antis of that county that he will do
all in his power to consummate this
effort, and that he believes it perfectly
practicable to do so. The action of
the State executive committee in or
dering an entire reorganization seems
to us to be the best and easiest way
out of the trouble. We ourselves be
lieve the Antis to be right in their
claim of having the legal organiza
tion, but the convention by a small
-majority decided otherwise, and like
good Democrats we hope they will
yield to the majority even if they be
lieve that majority to be wrong. Let
a feeling of true patriotism and con
servatism rise above any factional
feeling, and since the head of the
State Democracy says that a reorgan
ization is necessary, let there be a re
organization. There is nothing to be
lost by such a course, and much to be
gained--the unifying of the Democ
racy of Sumter county, and a healthy
influence to be exerted over the whole
State. All eyes are upon Sumter.
Governor Richardson Refuses to Accede to
the Request of the Democratic State
CoLUxBmA, Sep. 15.-Governor Richard
son has refused the request of the recent
Site convention to recall his appointment
of commissioners of election. The answer,
dated Saturday, was given out for publica.
tion to-day. Following are the resolutions
adopted by the convention:
-WHEREAS, it is due to our digniti and
self-respect as representatives of South Car

sons as a common hostage, and we shall al

members of this convention be appointed
by the chair to call on Governor J. P. Rich

the respectivei county executive committees,

Dear Sirs: I have carefully considered
the resolutions passed by the late Demo
crtic convention, and which I had the
honor to receive at your hands, in regard to
the recent appointment of commissioners of
election in this ftate. I have been forced
to the conclusion that neither right nor law
would justify the removal of any of these
citizens-among the most intelligent and
patriotic in the land-without the assign
ment of sufficient cause.
These appointments were not made until
the last day allowed by law, so as to permit
of such suggestions and information as
might be submitto.3, but they were never
proffered, and in the absence of such infor
mation and suggestions tae selection of
these important officials was made solely
with the view of securing for the people the
fairest possible expression of their will at
the polls. From the high character and
intelligence of these appointees, this result,
I feel confident, is assured.
For the reasons already stated, and be
cause it would be an improper use of my
authority as governor to remove officers
without cause, I am compelled, with the ut
most deference and respect for the express
ed wish of the convention, to decline to
accede to the request of the resolution.
I have the honor to be, with great respect,
your obedient servant,

DON'-r Scoiw.--Mothers, don't scold.
You can be firm without scolding your
children; you can reprove them foi
their faults; you can punish them
when necessary; but don't get into
the habit of perpetually scolding
them. It does thenm no good.
They soon become so accustomed tu
fault-finding and scolding that they
pay no attention to it. Or, which of.
ten happens, they grow hardened and
reckless in consequence of it. Many
a naturally good disposition is ruined
by constant scolding, and many a
child is driven to seek associates be
cause there is no peace at home.
Mothers, with their many cares and
perplexities, often fall into the habit
unconsciously; but it is a sad habit
for them and for their children.
Watch yourselves and don't indulge
in this unfortunate and often unin
tentional manner of addressing your
children. 'Match even the tone of

Eczema from Childhood.
When an infant my body broke out
all over with an ercption or rash,
which became more aggravated as I
grew older. From early childhood
until I was grown my family spent a
fortune trying to cure me of the dis
ease. Every noted physician in our
section was tried or consulted. When
I came of age I visited Hot Springs,
i Ark., and was treated there by the
best medical men, but was not bene
fited. After that under the advice of
a noted specialist, I tried the celebrat
ed Clifton Springs, New York, with
out any good results. When all
things had failed I determined to try
S. S. S., and in four months was en- r
tirely cured. The terrible eczema
was all gone, not a sign left; my gen
eral health built up, and I have never
had any return of the disease. I have
since recommended S. S. S. to a num
ber of friends for skin diseases, erup
tions, etc., and have never known of a
failure to cure.

only one way to cure deafness, and thaL is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition
of the mucous lining of the eus

you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed, deaf
ness is the result, and unless the inflamma
