1er, October.31, 1878.
ISi ELLISM IN CLARENDON.
Haskellisrm doesn't thrive in :Itodon.
Very few men of any prominence have sc
far taken:.part or interest in the movement.
Mr. B. Pressley Barron seems to be the rec.
ognized-leader of the split in this county.
Last Wednesday afternoon he and a few oth
ra probably as many as seven or eight,
met near the Furstenburg hall and selected
himself; W. Scott Harvin, W. M. Plowden,
P. G. Benbow, and J. H. McKnight to go to
the Haskell meeting inColumbia. The last
three named did not attend the Manning
meetng, nor did they go to Columbia eith
eor. We tried our best to find out who were
presentat the Manning meeting, but Mr.
Darron1declined to give us the names. We
regret this, as it is our custom to publish
the names of delegates that meet in a coun.
ty conve tion. They, probably, have some
reason, however, for not letting us have the
names. In addition to Messrs. Barron and
Harvin, 3. L Broughton, S. K. Haynswortb,
and W. A. Sparks were the persons who
vent to;Columbia to represent this county.
What they did will be found on the fourth
of this week's issue.
e pubhah below interviews with a large
number of gentlemen from this county, and
they voice the sentiment o? the county. It
wa thought at one time best to call a meet
ing of *l the clubs to meet any possible
danger that might arise, but the movement
in the county and state appears to be dwin
dling so fast that it will not be done. The
clubs will be called together soon, however,
but not from fear of Haskellism. We had a
great many more interviews, but they are
unavoidably crowded out.
Mr. D. -L Burgess, of Sandy Grove, says:
I was a Bratton man until the Democratic
party made their nominations and the par
ty put forward a Democratic ticket. Since
then I ,feel bound to support Tillman and
his whole ticket. Every Democrat should
turn out to the polls and support the regular
Mr S. P. Holladay, supervisor of regis
says: I have been conservative all
the waythrough the campaign; 1 did not
advocae the cause of any candidate, but
since Tillman has received the nomination,
I think it is tie duty of every Democrat in
the Siai to support him and the whole
Demo&oticket. I further think that it
is the Anty of every Democrat to oppose
with all his might this independent move
ment that has been thrust upon the people
withouft their consent. In so doing the
Kwhite p~pe will be doinig 'what was taught

others, beas they warned us and taught
~A to repudiate any and every independent
Mr. . B Colwell, a member of the firm
cY D. W. Aldermani & Co., of Alcolu, says
that he was opposed to the nomination of B.
ETinlman, but when the Demnocratic party
convention assembled nominated Mr.
T mnit put a stop to any further opposi
tion from him. He further sasthat he is
cath ith nogodto result frmi
to the Democracy of South Carolina.
Mr. Thoasn Wilson, one of the largest
aiBi men in this section of the State, says
that he opposed B. R. Tillman on prmciple,
and djnot consider him aproper man for
Governor of South Carolina, but the Demo
Saeggemvention~ met and decided to nomi
nat. (lpt. Tillman, and as the opposition
to bla did not withdraw from the conven
tion on account of the irregularities that
~ zaeh-feels bound to discountenance
an insanenaent ticket now. The Straigbt.
outs, IIhey disapproved of the methods
reovted-tid in the convention, should have
Swthdagen from the September convention
and pjmdiorward a ticket, but not having
don.so ad having participated in the
naof the convention they are

SShaefH. H. Lesesne will support the
rgarDemocratic ticket. and thinks the
aalelmovement will make little headway
SMr..'. If. Plowden, foreman of the grand
pr'y and one of the commissioners of the
> derablection. said: I opposed Tillmian,
"Wbuafer knowing him to be the choice of a
lrg~seinajority of the Democratic voters of
E the state, and after his nomination at the
S ' Speber convention, I expect to support
thttiket, if any, and regard the ticket with
MoCL.Haskell at its head as being unfortunate
WZan Ekly to result disastrously to the Dem
etie party in the staite.

h tatte Hankell movement is wrong in toto,
ad iacaleulated to do great harm in the
Stat. and every good and true patriot will

Wnminated on the 10th of September.
Mr..BBarrow5says that he is not in
favor; of an independent ticket. He be
liaves that every Democrat is bound by the
decision of-the September convention, and
thsopposing said decision are bolters.

am opposed to Tillman and his methods,
'and cannot bring myself to support him or

and merchant of New Zion, said that he
was opposed to Tillman, and the methods
resorted to by his followers, but when the

es as Democratic conventions. He DOW

Brawley Spurns Haskellism.
Maj.W. H. Brawley, of Charleston, said
Mondy in an interview with a Charleston
"I am the regular nominee of the Demo
nratic party of the first congressional dis
Ktrict. This Democracy is in organic union
with the Democratic party of the State and
of the United States. As such I could sup.
,tno other; every consideration of party
nd'i~ personal honor deraands that I
stn the regular nominees of the party.
If I did not do so, I should surrender to the
the trust they placed in my hands.
~fact that my law partner has become a
candidate of an opposition party cannot al
ter my obligation or affect my action. I en
deavored in every way possible to dissuade
him from this course, not knowing to what
deplorable consequences it might lead, but
as you may well know he is a gentleman who
-hinks for himself."
His partner alluded to above is J. W. Barn
well, candidate for Attorney General on the
Baskell ticket, and the man who ravingly
-.swore Tiliman should never be governor, and
that the poor misguided people must be
taught better sense than to vote for Tillman.
Drington has made a contract to have

According to official returns South Caro

Haskellism was denounced in unmeasure
terms last Friday by the Williamsburg coun

amble to the resolutions citing among othe:
things: "We presume that their candidat

fair representative of the whole; if so, ani
they should get in power. God save on:
State." Ed. Harper is the candidate for See
retary of State.
What Haiel Thought of lndependentism
Judge A. C. Haskell, the independen
candidate for governor, occupies a ver
anomalous position. As we said once before
he reminds us of a spoilt child that ha!
teen whipped: he keeps a sniffling, and f
shaking his head, and a saying, "But I wil
now !" In 1887, three years ago, Charles
tosL was, it will be remembered, threatened
with :1 division in the Democratic party
The asect while local was serious anc
would inve had an ill effect on the entir
State. '-'hen Independentism was worse
than Faditalism, and here is what Judg<
Haskell himuself then said. Read his owr
words and ponder them:
"I am shocked to see this thing. An Inde
pendent movement in Charleston is not on
ly treachery to that city, but to the State
and if successful would be repudiated b3
the State. If, for the sake ofpersonal dislik
to leaders, the Independents ruin the part
which is the white man's party, and th
party of consMrvative and intelligent colo
ed people of tie State, they will be con
demned by all :he people of the State, they
will be condemned by all the people of Souti
Carolina as traitors, not only to their owr
interests, but to the interests of the entire
"This movement is leading back to th<
condition of affairs from which they wer<
rescued in 1876, and if they get back to il
the people of the State will not help then
out of it. In South Carohna it is not a mat
ter ot local issues or personal preferences
it is a matter of lfe and dtvdh.
"There is only one way by.which we can
hope to maintain an honest government,
and every true citizen is bound to adhere tc
that, whatever his opinions of persons o
local questions; and the way is to obey th
voice of the majority of the Democratic party.

ton's Letter of June 17, 1882.
Rouse, ye Democrats! the Enemy b
To the Democratic Party of South Caroli
na: A grave crisis in the history of om
State confronts us. The life of our pa.ty i.
threatened. White supremacy in Souti
Carolina is endangered. What was predict
ed, but hardly expected, has happened.
An Independent movement has been inau
gurated; an Independent ticket has been
nominated, and for its success in the im
pending election a coalition has been ef
fected between the Rep'iblican party and
the deserters from the ranks of the- Democ
A small gathering of citizens calling
themselves Straightout Democrats, repre
senting at best only a defeated minority o;
the l'emocrats of the State, have helda
conference in Cclumbia, ia defiance of the
regularly constituted authorities of our par
ty, have set at naught the action of the reg.
ular Democratic conventions held in Aug
ust and September, have proclaimed war
against our Democratic leaders and nomi
nees, and, to lead them in this internecine
strife, they have nominated a full State tick.
et, 'with Judge Haskell at its head, as their
nominee for Governor.
By this action on their part, in opposition
to the action of an overwhelming majority
of the Democrats of South Carolina, they
have read themselves ost of thei ranks of
the Democracy. By calling upon the negro
voters to aid them in their fratricidal wiar
against their white brethren, they have de
clared themselves ready to join hands with
the black man in pulling down and destroy
ing the white man's government, and ready
and willhng to see South Carolina again un
der the heel of the alien tyrant and the ig.
They are, a few of them, men of high so
ciel standing and of great political infiuence
and experience; some of them men whon
this State has delighted to honor, and who
have filled high positions in reward for
their distinguished service as patriots and
Democrats. It is therefore with feelings of
regret and disappointment that we see them
voluntarily departing from our Democratic
ranks and subjecting themselves to the cen
sure so well expressed by Governor Hamp
ton when ho said that an Independent is
worse than a Radical.
But our duty is ed T'he Democratic
party of SoutL Carolina must defeit this
Independent movement. No loyal Demo.
crat can conscientiously vote for the Inde
pendent ticket. And we call upon you, the
white men of the whole State, as patriots
and as Democrats, to be true to your coun*
try, true to your party, and true to youi
race. By all that you hold dear, by your
lives and liberties, by your Lomes and fain
ilies, by your' white civilization and pride
of race, we appeal to you to quit you, like
men, like Democrats, like Carolinians. If
you would prevent the restoration of the
ruinous rule under which our State lay
helpless and prostrate from 1868 to 1876, ii
you would spare your wives and children the
re-enactment of the scenes of those dark and
terrible days, if you would enjoy prosperons
days and peaceful nights, you will not cast
your ballots for the Independent itcket.
Much though you may admire and esteem
Judge Haskell and his co-nominees, you
will, as faithful Democrats and patriotic
South Carolinians, vote for the regular Demn
ocratic ticket wvhich was nominated by the
Democratic convention on the 10th day of
September. A solid, unbroken Democracy
is of far greater importance to this State
than the success of any- man or any set of

which was adopted by the Independent Con.
ference. Among other specious argumenta.
tion it is sought therein to induce good
Democrats to be disloyal to their party by
telling them that it is vain to say that the
action of a political party exempts the voter
from responsibility. This is a trap for the
unwary, a prop for the unsteady. Such ace
tion is utterly undemocratic. No party could
exist if each member should be a law unto
himself. Party fealty compels each true
Democrat to support the regular party nom*
ination. It is undemocratic in any man, or
any minority of men, to rebel against the
action of the majority of their party.

to see whlt ecIuld be done to preserve their
rights of citizenship. Every seat in the
Iousie of Representatives was ocnpied; all
spectators had been excluded from tlic gal
lteries; the decks were cleared for action.
The discus-ion on both sides had gone far
into the night. Haskell's and Barnwell's
fiery words had fanned indignation into
it was then that Kennedy and Smyth and
Orr and Cothran threw themselves in the
breach and checked the headlong tide. It
was nearly three o'clock in the morning.
The seats were empty. The men had risen
and crowded around the speaker in a circle
so close that the gestures almost touched
them. Many of the men were hot with
wrath. Every indignant word of defiance
made the hall ring with cheers. The words
of those who counselled submiission to
wrong for the sake of South Carolina fell in
ominious silence. The men who sympa
- thized with them were too seriously earnest
for clamor. They were about to surrender
as brave men who surrender a fortress for the
sake of the women and children withiu it.
They did it without flinching.
That action was decisive. It spoke for the
straightout democracy, and Haskell and his
aiders knew it was so. It was because it
was so, that they fought so strenuously to
carry this convention with them. They
are still free men. They can repudiate
both factions of the Democratic party.
They may claim that the Democracy no
longer holds their allegiance, but let them
do so fairly and honestly. Let them an
nounce themselves as Independent. Let
them not assume the name of the Straight
out Democracy which they could not con
trol and whose sentiment they do not voice.

quences of their folly.-'partanburg Herald.

A Letterfrom an Emnend Diie in RTa'qrd to
the Best Mfeicine in the WlorM. RewL.
krT.AxTA, GA., Jan. 2, 1890.-Six months
ago, at the request of a friend who was in
1terested 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 ca
tarrh. Within the last two months I have
received letters from every quarter of the
nation calling on me for further informa
tion i. regard to my health. It has been
imipossible for me to write privately to each
person who has made this request, and I am
therefore under the necessity of makingI
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
icine within the last six months except
IKing's Roiiyal Germetuer. My he:'lth is bet
ter than it has been in thirty years. I am
in possession of information which wvar
rants me in saying that the relief which I
have exne'.::sed urom the use of the medi
eineC is not more certain and radical than
that which it has brought to hundreds of:
persons in Georgia and other States.
I feel it to be my duty to 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 rheuma
tism. In a period of thirty years she has
scarcely had a day's exemption from pain.
She has been using Germetuer about two
months. A more complete transforniation
I have never witnessed. Every symp~tom 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, an'd the testimony of all of thiem
is that it is a great remedy.
