THE MANNING TIMES.
Manninag, S. C.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12,1890.
Democracy has won, of course. No one
not blinded by the passion of hate and prej
udice and love of office ever really expected
any other result. The attempt at fusion be
tween Republicans and disaffected Demo
crats, in which the Republicans were to be
but tools for men who were attempting to
play false by claiming still to be Democrats
while catering to the Republicans, was too
childlike for any real sensible man, white or
colored, to be caught. History cannot fur
nish an instance where elements so radically
hostile ever amalgamated by such a process.
The policy of the Haskellites was weak.
They should have left the Democratic party
boldly, and openly joined hands with the
negroes: then they might have secured suc
cess. But to attempt to stay in the Demo
cratic party, claiming to be Democrats, and
yet gain the Republican (negro) vote was
more than even the negro could stomach.
Haskell and Hampton and Harllee and
Barnwell and Blanding and their follower
had great odds against them. Their cause
was not a just one. They while their star
was in the ascendency had shouted that in.
dependentism was worse than radicalism,
and that an independent would steal Heav
en's livery to worship Lucifer. They had
said the naked truth, and it had permeated
every true Carolinian. And when in theii
weak and far fetched sophistry they at
tempted to eat their own words, the tru(
white citizehs of the State spurned sucl:
sefish men, and will forever relegate then=
to the rear. South Carolina will not sooE
have any love for an independent, be he ax
aristocrat of high position or a poor buckr
without social influence.
Hampton must retire. He has done val.
iant service for his State, but when Haskel]
and such men became leaders of an inde
pendent movement he forgot his duty to hi
State and failed to condemn them, aye
worse, he even spoke words of commenda.
tion for them. The State has fully repaid
Hampton all she owes him, principal and
interest, and now we willlet him go back tc
private life. His last letter did the evil
work. And even after saying he would vote
the regular Democratic ticket he did not de
it. He says he left his registration certifi.
cate in Washington.
South Carolina will not soon be Mahon
ized. The dark days of '76 are yet too viv.
id, and the example of Virginia too promi.
nent before our eyes, for even such men as
Haskell and his followers to hurl our State
into political damnation. We must profit
by the lesson of the last campaign, howev
er. for independentism has in the estima.
tion of some become respectable, and other
means than the old slogan, "An independ.
eat is worse than a radical," must now be
used to kill opposition. Hampton has eaten
his own words, has spoken kindly of the
rich and influential independents, and now
independentism if started among the rich
and influential is a very respectable thing.
The ministers a few of them have made
the campaign ridiculous. They are not
suffciently acquainted with the ways of this
wicked world to dabble in politics. We know
-of several of the poor innocents who favor
ed the Haskell independent moyement.
One of them went sofar even asto si the
cal for the conference that nominated Has
'hell. Our advice is unasked and will be
unappreciated, but we think it would be
-best for such preacher-politicians hereafter
to forsake either politics or the pulpit. A
preacher has x right to his opinion and a
duyto vote, but when he attempts to leadsa
pltclmovement, there is a possible need
tohim to go into his closet and have alittle
;self examination of his spiritual condition.
~But the matter is over, and we have not
the slightest cause to grumble. Democracy
hbaa been triumphant in the county, State,
and nation. The people for once have got
what they wanted, and we sincerely trust
their choice has been a good one. Time
will tell. We have certainly had afair elec
tion-the fairest the State has had since re
snstruction. Now let us all endeavor to
work harmoniously together.
Let there be no hard words and unkind
Sempessonsabout how a man voted. Let us
suppose every man (except the leaders)
~vtdconscientiously, and let us all get to
gether again before the next campaign. Two
yer hence a president is to be elected, and
iDemocrat must be elected. Don't let there
be any cause whatever for it to be Laid that
South Carolina was in any way a party to a
break in the solid South. Let us all come
gantogether, and let the campaign of '90
bebut as the remembrance of a terrible
THAT ELECTION AT PDE WOOD.
*Mr. J. 11. Welch, of Fulton, has under
>aken to represent Gen. Earle, in regard to
nar criticism of Gen. Earle's advice to the
who held registration certificates for
& and who wanted to vote at Pine
Rwood. He says Gen. Earle bases his opin.
iaon an act of the legislature passed in
1885. Our lawyers based their opinion on
a sct passed in 1889, just four years later.
But then we don't propose discussing law
on- our own hook, especially with Mr
7Welch. We have the opinion of two law
fyr on this question, and they after having
cirefully studied the matter advised us that
oters registered for Falton could not vote
at ,pinewood. Thatlets Mr. Welch out, un
lees he can get the law from Mr. Earle or
from some other lawyer. We therefore drop
the subject on that point.
We are not familiar with the geography
-of jnwood. We are told it is very near
theline. The postofficeanld most of the
houses are in Calvary township and not in
Fulton. The State election was held in
Clalvary towniship and not in Fulton. So

Slive at and near Pinewood. Our remarks
were based on what these gentlemen told
us, and we believe them to be honorable
gentlemen. There is not a more honest
man in the county than Louis H. Des
Camps. He and others say Pinewood is
about four miles from Fulton and is princi
r.Wech sshe isa member of the
county Democratic executive committee, but
was not consulted when the instructions
were issued to the Democratic managers at
Pinewood not to allow voters registered for
Pulton to vote at Pinewood. We are aware
-of this fact, and it was his fault that he was
not present The meeting was held in pur.
saanee of a call of the executive committee
itself. Mr. Welch never attended but one
,meeting, and that was last August. But, by
'way of parenthesis, we beg leave to differ
from Mr. Welch on his claim to present
membership of the Democratic executive
committee. We are informed that he sup
ported the recent Independent ticket, and
it so we are confidentthat from his sense of
the fitness of things he will not attempt to
claim any privileges from the county D)em.

HURRAH FOR CLARENDON!
We have always found Clarendoi true to
her colors and to her duty, and when sever
al weeks before the clection we were asked
by the State Demo-ratie Exeentive Commit
tee what majority Clarendon would give, we
replied: "The people of Clarenlon know
how to appreciate a Demoeratic government,
and while we have a white vote of only
about 1500, yet we will give you a Demo
cratic majority of 1000." We missed it by
only 35 votes. The majority is 965.
NEARLY 50,000 MAJORITY.
We had hoped to give the official majority
of the Democratic ticket, but cannot this
week. It will be nearly 50,000. We suppose
about 4,000 or 5,000 white men in the State
voted for Haskell. Fully 30,000 white men
did not vote at all. Of this number fully
half were pronounced Democrats, and about
5,000 or 10,000 were wishy-wasby fellows,
fence straddlers, who probably were afraid
to take any decided stand.

Wants Office Mighty Bad.
The World representative has it from
high authority that the solicitors of the
State have prepared a petition, which has
been signed by all of them, requesting the
reappointment of Captain W. K. Bachman,
the present able assistant attorney general,
to be p:esented to Can. Pope, the recently
elected attorney general. It is also learned
that Gen. Pope has as yet made no appoint
Tetter and Boils.
For years I was afflicted with an
aggravated case of tetter. I tried lo
tions, salves, soaps, and other out
ward applications, without any bene
ficial results. In addition to the tet
ter, boils commenced breaking out all
over my body, causing me so much
pain that I had to quit work and go
to bed. I then decided that I had
started wrong, and instead of using
external treatment I ought to go to the
seat of the disease and purify my
blood, as it was obviously bad blood
that caused both the tetter and the
boils. I took several blood purifiers
without any good effects. About the
time my case was declared incurable
I commenced taking S. S. S. In a few
weeks the tetter was cured, and one
by one the boils disappeared, until I
was entirely and permanently cured.
This was three years ago, and since
then I have been free from any skin
eruptions. My skin is now, and has
been for three years, as smooth as any
one's. S. S. S. not only cured me of
the tetter and boils, but alsc restored
my appetite and general health, caus
ing me to increase in weight and im
prove in every way.
