J. L. M.. Irby-My Dear Sii
I wrote a personal note to yo
tly my intention was to remai
until I could give my views t
more fully than was then don(
since my return home so man
ds have asked of me an expre
of opinion on the condition <
cal affairs that I gave a bri<
ent to the press a few day
This, perhaps, renders it ui
y for me to address you agaii
as various communications an
ons to speak at public meel
have reached me I take thJ
of making my views know
who have done me the honc
ther reason that induces me t
this course is the fact that m
n regarding political mattei
and my conduct have been gros
presented in some quarter:
I desire that my fellow-citizer
be fully iaformed as to both, s
they may judge aright.
en my old constituents of th:
who had so ofter. trusted an
ed me in the past, invited me t
them in June last, I cam<
but one object in view, an
was to appeal to our people fc
y for conciliation, for unity <
I expressly disclaimed an
on of interfering in any wa
the canvass for governor, and
advocated any candidate n<
any. I said that the peop:
the Sole and proper judges i

their verdict there shoul
appeal. In order that thei
be a full and free expression <
Sof their wishes as to the s,
of candidates, I urged that
should be held, and had th
been adopted the present deplo
condition of affairs would n<
existed. Other counsels pr
and the result is a divide
and a bitter Vontest betwee

to do so. But the only remed

the dangers threatening i
was the conviction of my inabi

a*inilst i shall not speak agai

uit when the bitterness engendere
out we shall see again a united party
and a prosperous people-a return to
"When none was for a party,
When all were for the State,
In the brave days of old."
I am very respectfully yours,
Vote for Stackhouse.
Thomas M. Gilland, Esq., of King
stree, has been nominated by the
Haskellites of his county as a candi
date for Congress in opposition to the
regular nominee, Pol. Stackhouse. If
the white people of this district de
Isire to be represented in Congress by
a colored man, let a part of them vote
for Gilland and they will have their
wish. Gilland has not the faintest
shade of a shadow of a chance of be
S ing elected and every vote cast for
him is equivalent to one cast for Deas.
Colonel Stackhouse is the party nom
inee, the representative of the white
people of the district and should have
the solid support of the Democracy.
'Colonel Stackhouse will make a faith
ful, efficient, and conscientious repre
sebtative. The people of the district
manifested their confidence in him by
nominating him unanimously for the
office for which he is a candidate and
they should give him such a majority
on the fourth of November that not
even the partisan Republican House
over which dictator Reed presides
0 would have the effrontery to count
him out. It is the duty of every
s Democrat in the district to work and
0 vote for the party nominee. Gilland
cannot be seriously considered as a
candidate and his candidacy is wholly
in the interest of Deas. The latter is
r in the field to stay and his purpose is
to be elected if it can possibly be ac
complished. How many white voters
are there in the district who will help
to elect him by throwing away their
,r votes on Gilland? Every man who
e votes for Gilland votes to break up
d the Democratic party, to destroy the
d time honored organization which has
e given this State as pure and honest
and able a government as the people
have ever had. It will be a vote to de
a troy white supremacy in the district
and State and it will be giving aid
and encouragement and assistance in
reviving the old Radical party under
> whose wicked and malignant and dis
honest rule the white people of South
Carolina were forced to live so many
years. Endorse and support inde
Iendent candidates and you will help
eto restore this party to power. You
ehave a legal right to vote as you
- please but with the fear and dread of
black radicalism always present with
us the only safe course is for the
V wbite people to stand together in one
solid, unbroken phalanx. Any other
y:course is fraught with danger and
must, sooner or later, insure the re
! storation to power of that political
party which for more than a decade
sgave this State the worst government
the world ever saw.
l-Haskellism Means Rule or Ruin.
eOne of the editors of the Spartan
t burgq .Uerald attended the Haskell con
d vention only for the infor,mation of its
trSpartanburg had a large delegation
i--one of the largest present. They
3-went under the impression that it was
h to be a conference to deliberate for
c; the welfare of the State and adopt
ethe conclusions found to be wisest.
v When they reached Columbia thev
i found that it was a convention, shu~t
n up to one defined purpose-the non
te inaition of an Anti-Tillman ticket.
n Co. Walker, Mr. Calvert, MIr. Thback
y son, Dr. Geo. Heinitsh, Mr. Liles, and
s Mr. S. B. Jones, Jr., declined to go
e into the convention on that basis.
-1- They were willing to go into a con
y ference for deliberation and to abide
d by thre decision of the majority; but,
I- s one of them expressed it, "they did
n not propose to swallow ready made
b- opinions, or to be lead by the nose
n even by Judge Haskell."
The convention was in striking con
>- trast to the Straightout Conference of
i- August. In that conference every
r, county in the State was, we believe,
:s represented; and there were few
y prominent statesmen of South Caroli
it na absent. In this conference ~only
:- nineteen of the thirty-five counties
t, were represented, and reference to
s- the list of delegates will show that
i- only three men of State prominence
s- participated. One of the most prom
s inent Anti-Tillmanite editors of the
e- State reviewed it: "This convention
t seems to be composed mostly of
n young firebrands and dudes."
-e Some of the more conservative men
h were in favor of nominating a Gav
e ernor only. They urged that this
>r was to be a protest, 1st, against cau
e- cus nomination, 2nd, against abuse of
d Democi-atic leaders. But the Haskeil
ie ites caucused (as the Tillmanites had
n done) and selected a full State ticket,
a- while Tillman 'was the only man on
yf the regular Democratic ticket nomi
1 nated by caucus, and the only man who
ir has abused the Democracy. Had
i. they nominated only a candidate for
is governor they could have scrached
, Tillman, and voted the balance of the
-ticket without being bolters, or caus
le ing a split. When they vote against
n Gary and Tindal and Pope and Bates
: and Ellerbe and Farley and Mayfield,
is regularly nominated in the Septem
aber convention composed of Demo
tcratic delegates regularly elected,
f they cut the ground from under their
is feet and cannot claim to be regular
* Democrats. These are not strong
omen, but they are unimpeached Demi
st ocrats regularly nominated, and oppo
I sition to them, at least, is without
s legal or technical excuse.
>r The treatment of Solicitor McDon
o0 ald was significant and startling.
e Haskell decae that this was "the
f Democratic convention of South Car
e olina." MIaj. McDonald is a Demo
d crat-no one will dispute it-and yet
-. he was told that he had no right to
o be in this convention unless he would
- bow the knee and obey the dictates
eof Haskell and his lieutenants.
..Tillman ruled us out of the March
- convention which nominated him, and
Haskell says we ought not to support
r him on account of it. Haskell rules
a us out of the October convention, but
I claims that we should still support
Lt him. What is the difference ! Look
ron this: look on that. They are as
like as two black peas.
- Capt. Edmund Bacon was placed
a on the Haskell ticket. Many of his
e friends will regret it, as it places him
d in a position at once unfortunate and
a embarrassing He went into the Sep
tember convention and sought its I
nomination, thereby acknowledgingi
the legality of its organization and
that it represented the Democratic,
party. He did not fight Tillman be
fore the nomination. We believe he
was the only Anti-Tillmanite State
candidate who did pot openly do so.
He was so silent on the sbjet that
many Tillmanites claimed th at he was
one of them, and he went into the r
coavention with the strong Tillmanite
endorsement of this county. Since
his defeat, he is the only candidate a
before the September convention who !
has permitted his name to be used in
opposition to its nominees. Gen.
Bonham, and others, though strongly j
urged, refused to do so. t
Nobody was found who had the.
faintest hope that Haskell could be
elected without an overwhelming ne-;
gro vote. But they urged that this
negro vote was sought in '76. They:
overlook the vital difference, that in
'76 white men sought negro votes to I
kill negro votes with, and to defeat t
the nomination of the Republican
convention. In 1890 the negro vote
is sought to kill white votes with, and
to defeat the nominee of the Demo- i
cratic party. The negroes refused to I
follow Haskell in '76 because they t
knew he represented the Democracy.!
If they follow him in '90 it will be be-1 a
cause they believe he is opposed to I
Democracy. Politics makes strange

Col. Earle Not a Haskellite.
Col. Joseph H. Earle, of Sumter,
was in the city yesterday, having come
to the city to attend the meeting of
the state board of health of which he i
is a member, and which met yesterday
at the Roper hospital. t
Col. Earle, in response to an enquiry i
as to wnat he thought of the Haskell'
'movement, replied by stating that he
had already spoken very plainly and
without reserve in the matter. Person-I
ally entertaining a warm regard and
friendship for Judge Haskell, he cond
sidered that the present movement
was exceedingly unwise, and might
result in injury to the unity of the
Democratic party of this state. He
could not, therefore, in any manner,
approve of the movement.
IIn discussing the mattter. which Col.
Earle did with courtesy and frankness
to the reporter, he ~remarked, that.
when he had been invited to lead an
Independent movement in the state,
of a similar character to the one now(
being made, he had promptly declinedI
and for the reasons above stated. The
question of white supremacy in this'
state, Col. Earle intimated in conclu
sion, was paramount to every other
consideration, and any movement cal
clated to endanger this condition of
affairs would be both injurious and
hurtful to the entire state.- Charleston
A doctor in an institution with
many children declares that nothing
irritates a cough more than to cough.
He bribed the children in one of the
hospital wards to hold their breath
when tempted to cough, and was him-1
self astonished at the speedy relief oft
some of them.
FACTS FOR THE SICK!
A Letter from an Eminent Dicine in Regard to
the Best Medicine in the Wo'rld. Read.
krI.AmT GA., Jan. 2, ]890.--Six months
ag;, at the request of a friend who was in
terested in the sale of King's Royal Gernme
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 aim
therefore ninder the necessity of makin
aot~ohr public statement.ig
I am free fromi catarrh. I believe that I
could get a certiheate to this effect fromi any
competent physician. I have used no m"ed
icine within the last six muonths e'xcept
King's Royal Germietuer. Mv 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 wvhich I
have experienced from the use of the medi
ine 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 may duty to say, also. that
the effcts of this remedy upon my wife
have been even more signal and wvonderful. t
'she has been almost a lifelong invalid from
nervous headache, neuralgia, and rheumia
tism. In a period of thirty years she has .1
sarcely had a day's exemption from pain.
She has been using Germetuer about two
months. A more complete transformation
I have never witnessed. Every symptomo
disease has disappeared, She appears to be e
twenty years younger, and is as happy and
playful as a healthy child. We have per.
Isuaded many' of our friends to take the
medicine, and the testimony of all of them'
is that it is a great remedy.
