THE RING 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
.much fAXor 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
cOunty chairman, yet, if our informa
tion is correct, he did consult with as
pure a 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 hard "the ring" dies, and
-even when in the last ditch they are
still trying to start a mine under the
old Democratic bulwarks.
But for all this, we have respect for
the dignity of the governor's chair,
and were unwilling that the conven
tion should condejni him.
In another column will be found the
/action of the State convention, and
the governor's reply. These resolu
tions were ill-timed. The work had
been done, and "the ring" would not
rmit him to undo it.
-- BERKELEY POLITICS.
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
h e who led the Democratic forces to
-victory, and seized the county govern
~ment from the hands of a horde of
bjack politicians. When this service
~was rendered by him the whole State
acknowledged is 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
rtolled on the people concluded to
have a change in the management of
I ot onlyState officers, but in .some
Sinsances county officers as well, and
Berkeley is one of the counties where
such a feeling existed.
When this feeling presented itself
Mt.' 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
country, his political principles, are
,trampled under. foot, and he proves
- beyond all doubt that the extent of
his love of iountry, 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 is to be put before the voters of
Berkeley. When Mr. Smith was
ghg'Tillmanism in his county the
New ad 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 Courier 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
about to be kicked out of office 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

any mixture of Brayton-nigger-spleen
,The Democratic executive commit
tee (Tillman) of Berkeley county has
issued an address to the white men
of the county, appealing to them in a
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 is no time for men to al
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 mazde to gratify the spleen of some

Clarendon appreciates the honor.
Hon. J. J. Hemphill was yesterday
at Rock Hill unanimously re-nomi
rated 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 himself
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 vay
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 or the Democratic State
CoLTMmJ, Sep. 15.-Governor Richard
son has refused the request of the recent
Sate convention to recall his appointment
of commissioners of election. The answer,
dated Saturday, was given out for publica

adopted by the convention:

self-respect as representatives of South Car

Mr. H. C. Burn, Chairman, and others,
Society Hill, S. C.
Dear Sirs: I have carefully considered
the resolutions passed by the late Demo
rtic convention, and which I had the
honor to receive at your hands, in regard to
the recent appointment of commissioners of
election in this ~State. I have been forced
to the conclusion that neither right nor law
would justify the removal of any of these
etizens-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 submitte.., but they were never
proffered, and in the absence of such infor
mation and suggestions tae selection of
these important oilicials 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,
[ feel confident, is assured.
For the reasons already stated, and be
:use it would be an improper use of my
iuthority as governor to remove officers
without cause, I am compelled, with the ut-I
nost deference and respect for the express-f
ad wish of thc convention, to decline to
ecede to the request of the resolution.
I have the honor to be, with great respect,
tour obedient servant,.P IHRSN

Sw~zrs Br'rwEN MEmS.-There can
hardly be a greater folly on the part
of a parent than to allow a young
child to indulge in sweets between
meals. The eating of candy or cakes
at such times destroys the appetite
for wholesome and strength produc
ing food at meal time. The child
comes to table and nothing pleases
him; he becomes capricious and ex
acting, plays with his food, or rejects
it entirely, that is will not take
any, but craves liquids to allay the
thirst produced by the stuff he has in
dulged in. I have seen a lovely boy,
apparently in perfect health, come to
table and drink cup after cup of tea,
so-called, and not touch a morsel of
food. The mother very innocently
remarked: "He's just like that most
of his time; he hardly eats anything."
I learned the secret of this craving for
drink instead of food; the little fellow
had indulged in a package of sugar
plums injudiciously given to him by
a friend just before dinner time; he
had thereby been cheated out of his
dinner. For once this might not hurt
him, but done repeatedly one can
readily see how much injury the lit
tle fellowv's digestive organs would
sustain, for candy does not contain
the elements for producing bone and
muscle and blood needed by a'grow.

or confectionery are ever to be in
dulged in by a young child let it be
in small quantity and at the close of
a meal rather than at any other time,

appeased, the craving for much sweet
stuff will be lessened, and the harm
done in proportion. Cake and candy

Dox'-r Scorw.-Mothers, don't scold.
You can be firm without scolding your
children; you can reprove them for
their faults; you can punish them
when necessary; but don't get into
the habit of perpetually scolding
them. It does them no good.
They soon become so accustomed to
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.

in this unfortunate and often unin
tentional manner of addressing your

Eczema from Childhood.
When an infant my body broke out
all over with an eruption 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 ine 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
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.

DEAFNESS CAN'T BE CURED
by local applications, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition
of the mucous lining of the ens
tachian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed, deaf
ness is the result, and unless the inflamma
tion can be taken out and this tube restored
to its normal condition, hearing will be de
stroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are
caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an
inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for any

The time has come when the mercantile business like a great many other
branches has been reduced to a science, and in order for a merchant to be able
to compete with the present progress lie uist make a close study ofeverything
that pertains to his business, the wants and needs of the people; and have the
cash capital to go into market and buy direct from the factories. He must cal
culate the exact cost of each piece of material and every ingredient that is
used in the manufacture of the goods that he buys, and he must also see to it
after making his purchases that his goods are freighted as cheaply as possible.
