To-day, the day advertised for the Repub
lican grand rally in Manning. resulted in a
small crowd of negroes assemling around
a stand erected under the oaks (n the court
house square. A band consisting of a lifi.,
a bass and a snare drum, furnished the urn
sie and did duty for applauding the speak
ers whenever one of the "distingtisheid
gemmen" on the stage would give tLe signal.
On the hand bills advertising this meeting
were the names of a great many colonels,
majors, &c., and of course a large crowd was
expected, but not until the drums sounded
as a signal for the meeting to commence was
the very slim attendance noticeable. County
Chairman Svfax Milton called the meeting'
to order. and requested the Rev. A. E . Tor
rence to open the me'eting with prayer.
The chairman introduced as the first
speaker A. S. Boston, who aired his devo
tion to "de party" that produced such a
man as Patrick Henry, the man that pro
claimed to the State, "Give me liberty or
give me death;" and then he informed his
hearers of the number of white friends he
had; and that he would vote for laskell just
to show Mr. Tillman that he could vote.
The next speaker was Julius DuRant, who
was introduced by the chairman as another
subject from an educational institution.
This speaker followed very much in the train
of Boston. and wound up by saying that he
thought he would vote for Haskell, but if he
did not he would not vote at all.
Post Master Stewart was next introduerd.
He made a speech of about thirty minutes
in length. He used good language, but it
was Greek to the majority of the audience.
He closed by reading the address of the Re
publican committee, and said that it would
be submitted to them for their endorse
The chairman then came forward to ex
plan his position. He had not seen the
iddress until to-day, but he did not
favor Haskell or Tillman, and he had not
bad time to give the address the considera- i
tion it should have. If they did endorse

,d as he was the only speaker from abroad
is coming forward was the cause of a slight
>utburst of applause.
He started his speech by alluding to his
isappointment at the other gentleman not
being able to be present, and said his own
oadition was very much out of fix, owing
to the number of speeches recently deliver
d. He then proceeded to pour hot shot
into the white people generally, and refer
red to the late Confederacy as the bastard
government. He pitched into Captain Till
man and eulogized Haskell. He advised
is hearers to vote for Haskell as it would
be the entering wedge for them to get a foot
old, just as the Democrats did when they
ran the Carpenter and Butler and the Green
ind Delaney tickets. The Democrats did
not succeed when they first made these fus
tons, but their success came as soon as they
got a foot hold, and when that was accom
phshed they uprooted the Republican par
ty, and now is the opportunity for the Re
publicans to profit by the example.

one man ovec another. It is not simply who J

of the unity of the Democratic party in our

One thing is certain, we will not assist in d

t has caused it. There are good men on
each side of this unfortunate issue, and in
he near future it will require their united e
:rforts to save Scith Carolina in greater U
inergencies than the one now upon us.
Oa the 4th day of November next the bal- V
ot is to decide several momentous ques- i
ions. A great many consider that the most ]
mportant of these questions is to be settled
it the State boxes. Never was there a more
langerous error than this. I assure you
rom a knowledge of the situation in all its I a
phases, acquired in the position where your 0
mntfrages have assisted to place m, that the
struggle which means more of weal or of
bvoe to the indivivual citizen, the struggle 0
which will affect most seriously the tl
iomes of the people, their comfort, their n
ieurity and their prosperity is the contest b
t the congressional boxes. I have therefore
tddressed myself first to this subject, be- a
:ause it is in danger of being overlooked in i
he absorbing interest which suriounds P
I have only to add, in emphasis of my
issertions, that we lost control of the House
f liepresentatives at the last election by il
reason of Democratic apathy or division in tl
,wo or three Southern congressional dis
,ricts, and in consequence we are burdened
ith the oppression of the McKinley tariff, e
ind are threatened with the infamous elec- h
ion bill, both disastrous to our continued b
prosperity. Uay we not learn front this a
lesson for the coming election, and there- .
fore do our first duty as Democrats by giv- 1
ing to the Democratic nominee for congress S
ur unanimous and earnest support. Let fi
aothing prevent this, for the hour is one of
peril, and the danger signal must be an
swered promptly by every patriot, if he re
gards his obligation as a citizen and his duty [
to his own home and fireside. t]
And now, as to State pohties. There are
two State tickets in the field; one is the
Democratic ticket, and the otber is an Inde- -
pendent ticket. I will not impugn the mo- 1
tives of those who have instituted this In- o
dependent movement, but I shall simply g
state some reasons why I shall vote for the
regular Democratic ticket.
First, because I am a Democrat. d
secondly, because the election of the reg- r
ular Deuocratic ticket maintains the su
premacy of the Democratic orgapization in
our State, and the great mass of the Democ
racy can be trusted to rectify in the future t
such wrongs as may have been done in the 1
Thirdly, because the success of the Inde- 6
pendent candidates wvould inflhet a vital
alow to Democratic ascendancy in South
Carolina, and would furnish tin inducement
for disregard of party fidelity in the future.
Fourthly, because the Independent move- I
ment is supported by the Itepublican party
organization in South Carolina, as a mueansI
of permanently dividing the Democracy,e
and thus giving the ltadicals an opportuni-c
ty to regzain power in the future.
Fifthly, because if the regular Democrat
ie ticket be elected our erring brothers will
be again in the Democratic 'fold when the:
excitement of the election is over, but if the
Independents should be successful they
have no fold to which to invite us, for a largea
proportion of their supporters-are Repub- f
licans, and we wvill not affiliate with them in I
politics, for wve are Democrats.
['inally, let me urge forbearance and calm
ness in the present crisis. Ab>use of men
and their nmotives never strengthenso& cause;
if I expect to influence a friend by argu
ment 1 must concede the sincerity of his 3
opinions, however much -I may differ with
him in my views. Threats and attempts at
intimidation will not be successful against
men who have been oar comrades in heroic
struggles in the past for Demnocratig suprem
ac. We can only do our own duty as Dem- 1I
ocrats, trusting that the sober second-thought l1
of our erring brothers will bring them to
union with us under the Democratic banner,
in the troublous days before us, when we
will have to act together for our party and 0
our State. Riespectfully, your fellow-citizen, t

chool, every household where Amierican ,c
iterature is received and where the English A
anguage is studied.
Th~e publishers have spent more than ai
quarter of a million dollars in bringing ths
work out in its unabridged, revised, enlarg
d and authentic form. It now takes the
name "International," an d this is intended
t emphasize the fact that the language of -4
the mother country now encircles the globe. pi
Every page has been treated as if the book
were now p)ublished for the first time. The
eiaim of the publishers is that it retains
that excellence in definition which has -

Not many mass meetings were heh
n Monday, nor was it .lesirable thal
ny should be held. The argumeal
s exhausted. The time for speaking
ias passed; the time for action has ar
ived. But the mieetings held or
londay showed undoubtedly the
!rift of the political current, and fore
hadowed the certain triumph of the
egular Democratic State ticket-the
icket nominated by the Septenber
onvention, the only ticket which the
)emocratic voters can support, and
tpon the success of which the unity
if the party and the supremacy oJ
he white man in the government oJ
iouth Carolina absolutely depend.
The meetings were all one way,
some of the speakers were intensely
>itter in their denunciation of the
laskell movement, but all were very
arnest in their pleas for party unity
,nd party success. No other Inde
endent movement in South Carolina
as been treated with so great consid
ration or has been more deeply de
bored. The Haskell Independents
re regarded as raore dangerous than
he Independents who have heretofore
ttempted to disrupt the Democratic
arty, because by their intelligence,
onesty, and courage they are more
angerous to the future of the party
nd the State, and because it will re
uire the united efforts of all her sons
to save South Carolina in greater
niergencies than the one now upon
s." The choice that the Democratic
oter will have to make in this contest
i not simply a choice between men.
'he integrity of the Democratic par
r and the unity of the white people
f South Carolina are the great issues
t stake. The wise course, the patri
tic course to be pursued in this cri
s is not to drive the Haskell nien out
