STAND TO THE HELIM.
The political cauldron of bitterness
continues to simmer in some parts of
the State, and a continuation of all
sorts of threats fill the political atmos
phere. The people of South Caroli
na have for a long time allowed the
threats of a certain class of politicians
to keep them from asserting them
selves and throwing from power those
whom they desired to displace, but
this year the people concluded to try
a change of men, and so far have suc
ceeded in placing a brand-new State
ticket in the field. As soon as this
was assured the professional politician
commenced to put in his work by
hobnobbing with the negro to seek
Now the question is, are the white
men of South Carolina willing to al
low these unscrupulous men to lead
them into the camp of the Radicals?
There is no middle ground to take:
we must be with the Democratic par
ty, or we must array ourselves against
it: if we stay at home on election day
the Democratic cause, the cause of
white supremacy, loses that much,
and every vote lost can be counted
for the Republican party. Any man
that will undertake to gratify his
spleen by voting against the Demo
eratic ticket cannot be trusted by the
party in the future. "He is a leprous
man, he is unclean: his plague is in
his head." Yes, in his heart as well.
Every white man in South Carolina
should be aDemocrat, and all of them
that love their country are, bat there
are some who are doing everything in
their power to bring about a split, and
if they succeed what will be the con
sequence? Will that harmonize
things? or will it make the breach
wider? Should these men succeed in
bringing about a split in some of the
counties their success as a natural
consequence can only be temporary,
because the Radicals are only waiting
for the wedge to be driven into the
log, and as soon as it is done they
will take hold themselves and strike
their white tools a deadlier blow
than these renegades struck the Dem
The question of men is not in issue

AN IEXCUSABLE ERROR.
The actions of the leaders of .the
Antis have been one series of blun
ders, and some seem determined to
snstain their reputation to the bitter
end. No more serious, uncalled for,
~ill advised, and defiant blunder has
been made than that of appointing the
commissioners of election with such
undue haste, before the State conven
tion met, without consultation with
the duly aeeredited heads of the
Democracy throughout the State, in
deed with a seeming avoidance of
such counsel-all done in a great hur
ry just before the State convention
met. And now Mr. Assistant Attor
ney General Bachman assumes all
blame for the blunder, because when
the Governor sought his advice, legal
advice and paid for by the State, Mr.
Bacaman with pretended or inexcusa
able ignorance told the Governor that
sixty days must elapse, between the
appointment of commiasoners and
the election, when in fact he now
admits that he was mistaken and that
thirty days and not sixty days is the
time specified by the statutes. All
men are liable to err, but when such
a patia error as the above is made
itloks piscatory, especially when the
Governor insists on taking advantage
But what matters it, except so far
as the malignant animnus appears. It
will have little effect on the general
result, and only in a few counties
where the independent-mongrel-radi
cal spirit crops out will it possibly
Another great and final blunder is
the bolting spirit exhibited by some
dfated soreheads. The Demo
cati party, true and unflinching,
will remain practically solid
and all bolters, who, in thei
despicable greed for office for them
selves or friends, form collusions witi
the negroes, will be treated as inde
pendents, worse than Radicals, wors<
even than Mahones, undeserving o
the confidence and respect of Demo
crats, deserving of social ostracism.
We have no words fully to expres.
our contempt for that man with whit(
skin who has sunk so low in politica
relations as in any way to connive a
a collusion with the Republican part3
as it exists in South Carolina. Wh<
does it shows that heretofore onl:
love of power and gain influencet
bim, and now when he sees this slip
ping from his grasp, he is willing t
stab his old mother to the heart.
We are truly thankful to believi
that this article does not apply tt
Clarendon Democrats. We of thi
county know what Democracy an<
what Radicalism means, what negro su
premacy means, and we are confiden
that there are not a half dozen whit<
men in the county who for a momen
would seriously contemplate any col
lusion with the Radical party.
The Democratic primary in thc
fourth congressional district was h.eld
yesterday. Duncan and Shell hay1
largely distanced their competitors

governor's office, but Judge Haskell
while he has been bitter against Till

Judge Kehaw is quite ill, and i:
undergoing treatment at a New Yorl
sanitarium. He has decided not t
attempt to hold court in Lexington o:
Richland, and probably he will no
hold court in any county in that cir
cuit this fall.
The Sumter Democrats seem to b<
hopelessly divided. Each side claimE
to be the party and separate tickets wil
probably be nominated by each faction
Then the best thing will be to put
those two tickets before the people
and let none but white DemocratQ
vote. That will solve the question.
The Pickens &ntinel of the iSt
inst. says: "We are authorized tc
state that Judge James F. Izlar, of
Orangeburg, will vote for Capt. B. R
Tillman for governor." We do not
see anything wonderful about this
statement, as everybody knows that
Judge Izlar is a Democrat and a pa
triot, and regards his pledge to the
Democratic party far above any man
or set of men.
There have been lively times in con
gress of late. The Republicans were
desirous of seating Langston, the col
ored contestant from a Virginia dis
trict, and the Democrats objected.
The Republican majority is small, and
the Democrats by keeping out of the
house prevented for several days a
quorum. An attempt was made one
day by Speaker Reed to lock the
members in, but the Democrats walk
ed to the doors and kicked them open.
This continued for a week or so. Yes
terday, however, the Republicans got
a quorum, and in a few minutes seated
Langston. ~The Miller-Elliott contest
was then called up, and in six minutes
Miller was seated. So South Carolina
again has a negro in congress
A Hard Corner.
The age of 30 is a hard corner for a woman
to turn, and 35 is still harder. She feels
that she is fast leaving her youth behind
her. But there is no reason why a woman
should be faded and passe at 35, or even al
45. The chief cause of the early fading o1
American women is found in the fact thai
many of them suffer from some form of
female weakness or disease which robs the
face of its bloom, draws dark circles about
the eyes, brings early wrinkles and sallow
ness, and stamps the face and figure with
signs of ill-health. Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription will cure all these troubles,
will bring back the lost bloom, and remove
the pains and ailments which make women
grow old before their time. Guaranteed tc

the St. Matthews Herald, has got his whole
heart in the subject matter below, and like
a patriot and a Democrat thus expresser

convention has met, and done its work, and

patriots to acquiesce in the will of the ma

est tribunal, no matter what may be oum
personal likes or dislikes in the matter. To
do otherwise would be undemocratic, and
dangerous to the chief aim of every good
Democrat-the continuance of white su
pr-emacy in South Carolina.
We know that there are a number of good
patriotic men in our county and State, who
find it almost impossible to reconcile them
selves to the new order of things; and it is
to these men we now appeal as patriots,
feeling satisfied that they will, when the
passions of this bitter campaign are over,
in their sober second thought, see that the
can gain nothing good by opposing the
nominees of the party.
It is bound to come-the reaction, we
mean. Patriotism, although it sometimes
smoulders amid the ruins of some crushing
disappointment, as long as a spark reside!
within the human breast, is bound to assert
itself in the end, and the individual pos
sessing it will be found capable of under.
going any sacrifice, yea, even death itself
for his country's good. And most, if no1
all of our fellow Democrats are patriotic,
and will be found at the polls in Novembe:

grand old Democracy by their actions, it

The Committee's Tiews on the Governor's
Premnalure Appointments. .
Fairness should certainly be accordcd to
the action of so representative a body as a
State convention. In the corresinlnance
of the News and Courier the resohitions
adopted and committee appointed to wait
upon the Governor in re-ard to commis
sioners of election has been styled "Insult
ing the Governor," and the Greenville New..
qunalited it by ;ddiing "Indirectly iniuting."
Now as the miiroducer of thos- rei
tions, and in conseqnence the chairann of
the committee. let me say that the pream
ble and the wlrding of the resolutions,
and an alditional resolution, diselaiming
any intent even to reflect on the Governor
or his appoiuet.s, should set at rest aty
such inference. And I will further add
that thee was no intent, directly or indi
reetly, actuld or implied, to reflet upon the
G-o(ernor or his appointees in any way
whatever. The motive and ohj'et of the
resolutions was to honor him as the Chief
Magistiate of all the people by calling his
attention to the fact that four-fifths, or a
great majority, of the Democratic party were
without fair representation on the, board of
commissioners of election. That the cus
tom which has become the unwritten law of
the party had been set aside, and that in
stead of appointing those recommended, or
to be recommended by the county chairmen,
others had been appointed almost solely
from the small minority.
Now "these citizens among the most in
telligent and patriotic in the land" and
"from the high character and intelligence
of these appointees," admitting all this to
be as stated, it assumes a innd of knowl
edge truly wonderful. How came the Gov
ernor in posession of such a vast amount of
accurate information ? Isn't it proof con
clusive that a list and recommendations
have been furnished him and that he con
sulted a small minority of the party and
handed over to their control the dearest
rights of the majority of his fellow-citizens,
whose suffrages placed him in the exalted
position of Chief Magistrate.
The Governor strikes a heavy blow at the
county chairmen for not making suggestions
and furnishing inforimation in time, and it
will doubtless awaken these officials to a
sense of their duties. But is it a fact that
these appointments were not made until the
last day allowed by law ? That is a very
important question, and Mr. M. C. Gallu
chat's opinion, asa lawyer, controverts it.
However that may be, the Governor has had
the matter placed sqiuarely and courteously
before him, and respectfully asked to give
a majority of his fellow Democrats fair rep
resentation on the board of commissioners,
and he has positively refused and has so
placed himself on record before the people.
The convention, too, goes on record before
the people as giving to the Governor an op
portnnity of showing by his decision wheth
er he was the Governor of all or a part only
of the Democratic party and people, and its
object has been attained.
HF.Nay C. BCEN,
Society Hill, Septem.ber 18, 1890.
Notes of the interview between his Excel
lency Governor J. P. Richardson and the
committee appointed by the September con
vention for that purpose:
First: The Governor promised to give
the chairman a reply within ten days.
Second. He admitted that it is customary
to appoint as commissioners those suggested
by the Democratic chairmen, and that he
had complied with that custon. But that in
this election year he had not complied with
it, as county chairmen had not made any
suggestions, with the exception of Williams
burg county, whose letter had been received
after the appointments had been made.
Third. If the commissioners now ap
pointed should resign, he said, he would
receive their resignations, but would Lot
feel it his duty to appoint others recom
mended by Democratic county chairmen,
though as good Democrats, and as well qnal
ified as those already appointed, he cldam
ing the absolute right of determining all
such questions according to his own judg
Fourth. He would not deny he had been
furnished lists before he made said appoint
ments, and when interrogated respecting the
appointments made in Clarendon county he
refused to give the name of the pirty or
parties who may have furnished such list.
He justified himself in departing from the
custom of appointing commissioners of elec
tion recommended by the county chairmen
by reason of the State convention not allow
iog the chairman of the State executive com
mittee to name it-s temporary chairman.
We, the undersigned, members of the conm
mittee appointed by the Democratic State
convention held in the city of Columbia on
the 11th and 12th of September, 1890, do

FACTS FOR THE SICK!
A Ler from an Brinent Div;ne in Th'yril to)
the Best Medicie in the World. Red.
ATLANTA, GA., Jan. 2, 1890.-Six months
ago, at the request of a friend who was in
terested in the sale of King's Royal Germe
tuer, I made a written statement of the ben
efits I had received from the use of that
medicine. In that statement I expressed the
belief that it would cure me entirely of ea
tarrh. Within the last two months I have
received letters from every quarter of the
nation calling on me for further informa
tion in regard to my health. It has been
impossible for me to write privately to each
person who has made this request, and I am
therefore under the necessity of making
another public statement.
I am free from catarrh. I believe that I
could get a certificate to this effect from any
competent physician. I have used no med
leine within the last six months except
King's Royal Germetuer. My health is bet
ter than it has been in thirty years. I am
in possession of information which war
rants me in saying that the relief which I
have exper'ienced from the use of the miedi
cine is not more certain and ratdical than
that which it has brought to hundreds' of
persons in Georgia and other States.
I feel it to be my duty :a say, also. that
the effects of this remedy upon my wife
have been even more signal and wonderful.
She has been almost a lifelong invalid from
nervous headache, neuralgia, and rhemtna
tism. In a period of thirty year's she has
scarcely had a day's exemption fronm pain.
She has been using Germetuer about two
months. A more complete transformation
I have never witnessed. Every symptom of
disease has disappeared, She appears to be
twenty years younger, and is as happy and
playful as a healthy child. We have per
suaded many of our friends to take the
medicine, and the testimony of all of them
is that it is a great remedy.

Mr..11. R. Meldan. well known inl this county as a skillful and experienced mechanic, will give
personal attention to repairing of any anl all kinds of furniture, or will manufacture any kind of
furniture at shortest notice. Our prices are as low as the lowest. and all we ask to effect a sale
is an inspection of our goods.
The tine has come when the mercantile business like a great many other
brancles has been reduced to a science, and in order for a Merchant to be able
to compete with the present progress he inust 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 buv direct from the factories. He must cal
culate the exact. cost of each piece o' material and every ingredient that is
used in the mainanufacture of the goods that lie buys, and he must also see to it
after making his purchases that his gi:oods are freighted as cheaply as possible.
I have just returned iroi the largest markets in the United States,
and an prepared to prove to my customers that I can save them money by
buying fron ine. I realize the fact that the crops of our county are better than
they have been for several years, and the people-will be in a financial condi
tion this year to purchase what they want, therefore I bought a very large
stock which is coming in every day. and in a few days I will haye a grand
opening of Dry Goods, Notions. Carpets, Mattings, Clothing, Boots and Shoes,
Hats. Gents' Furnishing Goods, Hardware, Groceries, and in fact everything
that can be kept in a first-class general mercantile establishment. Being fully
aware of the strong competition now existing, and the tremendous efforts that
are being made by merchants of other towns to capture the trade that ought
and should come to Manning. I made iy purchases right from first hands and
gave my personal attention to getting reduced rates on freights in order that I
could give my patrons the benefit of making their purchases at home as cheap
or cheaper than they could make them elsewhere.
Strong competition always proves beneficial to the purchasing public, and I
make the assertion that there is no merchant in the State in a better positi~n
to compete for the trade than I am, and if selling honest goods at bottom prices
will accomplish my desires I am determined to force the trade of Clarendon to
Manning. whuere it rigitlly bel5ongs. Come to Manning. visit my store, and see
for yourselves the treilendous stock that is being opened, and if there is any

all doubts disappear by P0ositive iwoi.
Now is a glorious opportunity to buy summer goods. I will sell the balance
