THE CAMPAIGN LIAR.
Just before the county convention
last summer we warned the people to
beware the campaign liar, and now
we doubly warn them to beware this
contemptible character. Last week it
was rumored on these streets, and we
know not where else, that Mr. S. A.
Nettles had said in a conversation on
the streets that he favored the use of
bayonets at the polls.
Now this was simply a malicious
and contemptible lie out of the whole
cloth. Mr. Nettles has never, publie
ly or privately, openly or confidenti
aly, given any such advice or favored
any such scheme. It was largely and
mainly through his efforts that cam
paign day in this place last July was
as quiet as it was. The very ones
now talking about bayonets at the
pols and endeavoring in this and
other ways to engenider strife between
the races, secretly and covertly doing
their damnable dirty work, are proba
bly the same ones who then wanted so
badly to see a row here campaign
Mr. Nettles is opposed to rows of
any kind, and he has advised against
any such proceedings. He is in favor
f a quiet and peaceable election, and
is heartily in favor of having the first
and every drunken disturber of the
l-peace snatched .up and at once put
behind the bars. He believes we will
ae a quiet election, and is earnestly
working for the same; and should
there not be a quiet election, should
there be a conflict between the races,
be believes it will be due solely to the
actions, open or secret or both, of the
E&-Democrats who are now trying to
korn earth and hell to see Haskell
i-elcte; and who, in order that they
nay-rule, are willing for the Demo
m eatic party to go to pieces, and the
-Badicals and carpetbaggers again to
-have dominion over our now prosper
Let us once again warn every one
not to believe any of the lying ru
mrs that will very probably be cir
eulated on and just before election
day. They will be many, but unless
enu of your own knowledge'know the
rmor tobe true, then believe itto be
false,orninehundred and ninety-nine
aot of every thousand 11ill be as false
sfalscan be. Some of the support
er of Haskell are mad to desperation,
and willnot hesitate to stoop to any
adepth to carry their point. Their'i
pliyis that they had rather see the
Stt. damned and Democracy ruined
than that Tillman should be Govern-.
r. Beware the campaign liar.,
H A L BOSSISM RULE?
Jiad any poor man, or any man who
does not belong to the Columbia ring
6taristocracy, attempted an inde
pedent movement, it would hav4
been howled down by the Butlers and
Hamptons and Haskells and other
leading lights as damnable indepen-'
datism, far worse than radicalism,
but because Haskell is at the head of
it, and others of like stamp are sup
prting it, independentism has be
come better than Democracy.
Farmers, if ever there was need for
oa togo tothe polls and show by
your solid, undivided vote, that you:]
do not intend longer to submit to
such execrable bossism, now is the
time. Haskell and his crowd mean
smply that you, in endeavoring to
a how that you want to vote as you
please, are but a set of serfs and '
henchmen, unable to think for your-.3
selves and fit only to do the bidding of
these aristocratic masters. Will youj
submit? After saying they had rath- t
er see your and their State eternally
damned than that your choice for
governor should be elected, will you
by reaining at home allow this Has
keticket tobe elected? Or worse
stll, will you by going to the polls
and casting your vote for Haskell
show that you are willing for Democ
racy to go down, and for Haskellisim, 1
independentisn, bossism to rule the E
Every man must judge for himself
-decide whether he will vote the reg- e
uLr Democratic ticket, or go off on 1
independentism, on a new and untri
ed sea with breakers rising high in
the air. We believe Clarendon will
prove true to herself, and will bury t
independentism too deep ever to have t
a shadow of respectability in Claren
don counsy. We do not believe our r
people will be laggards and let Dem

STAND TO THE PARTY.
Next Tuesday will decide whether
the white men of South Carolina are
to perpetuate the principles of Dem
ocracy, or surrender those principles
for the sake of gratifying a few dis
appointed men that were defeated by
the people in the recent campaign. It
has been said that there exists a ring
in Columbia that will either rule or
ruin, and the saying is proving itself
a reality. The chief executive of the
State seems to forget that the white
people of South Carolina made him
their governor, the same people that
he is now loaning his official position
to defeat. To make such a charge
seems wrong, but it is true, and if
true the people should know that they
have been deceived, betrayed, and
bartered away by the man they placed
in charge of everything they hold
dear. The governor of South Caro
lina, instead of allowing the appoint
ments for election officers to be made
in the customary way, went to -work
and made his appointments in accord
ance with the wishes of the "Inde
pendents," and that is not all, for we
believe instructions were sent to most
of the commissioners how and who
they should appoint, because in most
of the counties the managers of elec
tion are "Independents" instead of
regular Democrats, showing conclu
sively that all this mischief was con
cocted in Columbia, the "head center
If the governor was true to the peo
ple that made him what he is, no In
dependent would have dared to op
pose the regular Democracy of the
State, but with the election machin
ery in the hands of a man who has
already made a reputation of going
back on his friends itis not surprising
tlat we have been bartered away like
so many sheep.
The burning questions are for you
to determine, for by your action next
uesday you will say whether or not
you will give your endorsement to the
treacherous conduct of the man who
has used his office to crush our liber
ties and blast forever the hope of
white man's supremacy; whether or
not you sanction the conduct of the
pledge-breaking set of men that have
allowed themselves to mistake hate,
prejudice, and defeat for patriotism;
and whether or not you will silently
allow these men to tear asunder the
party that has given us comfort and
protection. It is with you to say
whether you are going to allow a self
appointed few to hurl into your faces
the insult that although white men
you are not fit to select men to gov
ern. Yes, it is for you to say whether
you would rather be governed by
men of your own selection, or by men
that have been selected for you with
out your knowledge or consent.
All these questions must be decided
by you on the election day, and home
ar in your fields is not the place to
render- the decision. The ballot box
is the place. If you were conscien
tious in the selection of your nomi
nees have the manhood to prove it
next Tuesday at the polls; turn out;
work for the cause; do not imagine
that things are now like they used to
be: they are not. In the past the ring
would put up a ticket and we voted
or it whether it pleased us or not.
We did not bolt No, every white
Ean supported any and every~ ticket
hat the convention nominated. But
hbings have changed: the ring got
beat; the people took a hand in the
naking of the State ticket; and behold
he result: A few cod fish aristocrats,
;ogether with some heelers and boot
icks, say they won't submit to the tick
it, and rather than allow themselves to
se whipped they will let the State go
nto the hands of the enemy. We are
iot indulging in imagination. They
?ropose to rule or ruin, and through
mt the State combinations are being~
nade with the Republicans, and they
ui~sorting to all kinds- of schemes
o cary on their desperate game.
Thesa Independents have the au
lacity to) claim to be Democrats, and
n Marion county, where the call was
nade for the Independent conven
ion that nominated Haskell, a color
d Republican was placed at the head
>f the county ticket by the ".straight
uts." This Republican is the leader
>f the Republicanparty of that coun
y, and by giving him a seat in the
egislature i e is to give to the Haskell
icket the colored vote. But this is
iot all: in Horry county the straight
>ts proposed to the Republicans that
they would vote for Haskell they
would give them one county commis
oner and the jury commissioner.
ven the juries of the land are to be
wapped for votes. In Clarendon it
ato be hoped that no such comnbina
ions will be formed, but the opposi
ion are working in secret, and there
a no telling what plot is on foot, and
he only way to prevent unscrupulous
nen from springing their tricks on
ou is to be on the alert. By all
neans do not be over-confident, and
hink because the Democratic party
ias succeeded in making its nomina
ions that you~r work is finished. We
tave nominated the ticket, and we
nust elect it. There is opposition,
nd every one of us have a duty to
erform, and we must have the man
ood to perform that duty or the en
my will succeed in their efforts to
rush into submission the majority of
he white voters of the State.
The Independents are very hopeful.
They are being encouraged by the
tepublican endorsements in the sev
ral sections of the State. In this
ounty the Republicans very wisely
efused to endorse Mr. Haskell or
lapt. Tillmian, but still the Haskellites
ount on getting a majority. They
ave an idea that the colored people
till support-their ticket. They also
eel encouraged because they have a
iajority on the board of managers at
ome of the largest precincts, who
ley think will do all in their power
ainduce the colored voter to cast
is vote for Haskell, but in this we be
eve they are mistaken, as the colored
ian realizes the fact that this is a fight
etween white men, with nothing to
e ained for him, matte not which
way the political cat jumps. Demo
crats, your duty is plain. If you want
to uphold the Democracy you must go
out to the polls and vote; let nothing
keep you back, as it is a day of more
importance to you than any other
business that you might have. Re
member that the question of selecting
men was settled on the 10th of Sep
tember; we are now fighting a ques
tion of party and principle. A. C.
Haskell, the leader, of the Independ
ent movement, when somebody else's
ox was being gored, said: "There is
only one way by which we can hope
to maintain an honest government,
and every true citizen is bound to ad
here to that, whatever his opinions of
persons or local questione, and the
way is to obey the voice of the major
ity of the Democratic party. If he
does not, he is a deserter, and should
be so treated."
In the face of such a declaration he
is the first to make the break. Is he
a deserter? and should he be so treat
ed ? are questions to be answered in
a practical way at the polls, and it is
to be hoped that men will lay aside
all feelings of disappointment and se
riously consider whether it would be
right to gratify the spleen'of a few or
stick to the nominees of the pai ty as
they have always done. If it was a
crime to bolt the nominations of the
Democratic party in 1887 it certainly
must be now.
White men, there is a future to con
sider as well as a present to act; there
fore it behooves you to seriously pon
der over this matter, and then if you
can with a clear conscience make up
your minds to let the political future
of this State get out of your grasp,
vote against the nominees to whom
you were pledged, but if you want
the party of white supremacy to con
tinue lay aside everything, make every
sacrifice, and turn out on the 4th of
November. It is not for yourselves
alone, but for your wives and children

Judge Haskell is the champion bolt
er of the age. He first bolted the
Democratic party and went over to
the straightouts. After being voted
down in two conferences, that were
held by that wing of the party, he,
bolted from them. This all proves
that he is a rule or ruin man, and
should be defeated.
Coroner Judson is enthusiastic over,
Easkell, and says he will get every
colored vote as a general thing. We
suggested to him that the negroes di
vide, as the white men were disposed
to do, bat he says no; that they want
o put Haskell in this time first, and ,
~hen they will divide in 1892. He also t1
said that every one of them intended
o crowd the polls on election day to
see that their votes were counted;
~hey do not care whether or not they
are jailed or killed, to the polls they
wil go, in spite of all opposition, and t
de confidently expects Haskell's elec
