WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1890.
Col. Irby has been elected United States
senator to succeed Gen. Wade Hampton.
The speeches of the nomination, and the
results of the ballots will be found on the
first page. 'When the result of the final
ballot was declared, there was some hissing
done, but in a moment this contemptible
conduct was drowned by the immense
cheering for Irby. The contest from the
beginning was narrowed down to three can
didates: Donaldson, who was put forward
as the special representative of the Alliance,.
with his allegiance to the Alliance first
above all things; Irby. the candidate
of reform element of the Democratic party,
who was pledged to the farmers and their
interests, but who proposed to stand by the
Democratic party in maintaining its suprem
acy; and Hampton, the present incumbent,
who had done so much for the State and
had been honored so long that it was right
and proper to re-elect him.
In the senatorial contest, Maj. DesChamps
and Mr. Richardson voted for Donaldson,
and Dr. Woods for Irby. It was a slip of
the pen last week in saying that Maj. Des
Champs voted for Irby. He stuck to the
Alliance candidate to the last.
Col. Irby is yet a young man, who has
not been long prominently identified in
publi affairs, but he has shown himself the
past year, to be a man of fine parts and
deep acumen. His masterly conduct of the
Demoeratic campaign against the independ
ent movement, led by some of the most
gifted men of the State, showed him to be a
man of great power. He will make a good
senator, who will do honor to his State.
Hampton owes his defeat to his friends.
The people of South Carolina are not un
grateful, and will ever cherish his name for
the good he has done his State, but that
name will not be written in as bright letters
as if be had never written that letter to Irby
last October. The people did not demand
of Hampton that he should denounce the
friend of his bosom, but they did demand
that he should express his disapproval of
any independent movement. When he de
elared that an independent was worse than
a radical, it was against men for whom he
socially and politically cared naught, but
this independent movement, because it was
led by his social and political friends, was
handled gently, aye, it was even fondled,
and he declared that he would not advise
any man how or for whom he should vote.
Possibly this was right and honorable, and
Hampton should not have been blamed for
it, but South Carolinians, the great mass of
them, demand that the actions of a man
shall not be determined by family influence
alone. If it was wrong for a man of mod
orte inuence to be an independent, it was
at least equally as wrong for Haskell and
his followers to be independents, and
Hampton should have said so. There was
no demand that he should on this occasion
repeat his oft-told thrust that an independ
ent was worse than a radical. He could
simply have said that he did not approve of
the Haskell movement, and that he thought
it was injurious to the cause of Democrucy,
and then advised the people of the State to
vote the regular Democratic ticket. That
would have been the same Hampton the
people have known and loved and followed
We believe in the adage, 'Spoils to the
victor, and think that if Hampton had been
elected it would have been the heaviest pos
asble blow to the party. To be a Democrat,
one must abide the decision of the rarty
and vote for the nominees. The man who
_in this last campaigr-, when the apparent
danger was so great, refused to vote, cannot
be considered a full Democrat, and from the
highest to the lowest offces should be left
alone. He has no busines's with any of the
ublic pay. Such is the unwritten law of
4teparty, and in the future it will be found
v-.that the observance is better than the breach.
T-~-rior to 'ep. 10th the fight was within the
- party, but after that date he who opposed
-'the regular ticket must stand aside.
SIn this connection -we reproduce the fol
Slowing from the Georgetown limes, which
in the main coincides with our views:
"While in Columbia last week, Governor
Sllzman told several gentlemen, in our
-presence, that it was useless for any man to
come to him for offce as an alleged Tillman
supporter; that he would appoint an Anti
Tihen man to a position just asqucy
:.as hewould one of his avowed friends;
Ast ahe recognized the right of every citizen
to vote for the man of his choice, and he
asbould suffer no detriment at his hands.
DM (and this is the rub with some people)
if a candidate voted the independent Has
k ell ticket at the last election, it was useless
Rd o ask offce at his hands, for he would ap-|
~ pita coal-black negro every time, if he
,6 new it, in preference to the independent."
Some people are hard to learn. They seem
to think that in them is centered all that is
?right and just and proper, und who difetrs
is denionneed as a nincompoop. That policy
hu- a summer yielded a very small dividend.
Ssupporters of Hampton are flew pur
ungthe sa:ne course, and it is to any per
son 'of delicate sensibilities exceedingly
nanuating. Hampton was defeatedhoecause
h e favored independentism. Of thiat there
is no doubt. Bow where is the good sense
in hurling anathemas upon those who voted
against him. It does no good, has done
none, nda can do none. On the other hand,
rt has done much harm. The people care
mothing whatever for this uncalled for and
--The Haskellians last campaign swore
that Tillman should never be governor.

bet er secret and early preparation have
no terrors for the old-time regulars. The
people-will go on quietly in pursuit of their I
vocations till '92, and then as this year will
show whether the bosses or the people are
masters of the situation. The nominee for

Last week Attorney General Pope dis
missed one T. B. Butler from a clerkship in
the engrossing department, because he voted
for Haskell. Butler, influenced by a clerk
in Joseph Barnwell's office, indicted Attor
ney General Pope for violation of the law
in dismissing him. The trial came offyes
terday, and no case was made out. Little !
Contemptible ! But then Barnwell is the
man who ravingly swore that Tillmnan should
never be governor.
There is a movement on foot to form a

Senator J. L. X. Irby.
Col. John Laurens Manning Irby was
born in Laurens county at Laurens C. H.,
in the year 1855. His hither was Col. James
H. Irby, who was a distinguished lawyer
and politician, as well as a large and sue
cessful planter. His mother was a grand
daughter of Dr. Earle, ,f Greenville coun
tv. There are few men in South Carolina
who can boast of a faimily ancestry more
honored than Col. Irby. His giandfatier
was an tflcer in the American revolution,
and was among the noble band of patriots
who were massacred at Have.'s station.
Col. Irby received the rudiments of his
education at Laurens C. I., and afterwards
attended the Virginia University and Prince
ton College. He studied law under A';soci
ate Justice McIver at Cheraw, practiced his
profession for a wihile at Laurenas, C. II.,
and abandoned it to engage in the pursuit
of agriculture, in which occupation he has
proved a grand success, as he is one of the
most progressive and prosperous farmers in
his county. He lives on his model planta
tion, which is governed and controlled un
der his own personal supervision.
He has been a member of the State Leg
islature since 188G, at which tiinei he en tered
actively into polities to the extent of arous
ing the people from their lethargy to united
action for the restoration of the State he
loved so well. Col. Irby is a fearless advo
cate and an uncompromising champion of
the people's rights, quick of perception, and
in action prompt and decisive. He pos
sesses broad and liberal views, and is strong
in his convictions of what is right, and has
the manly courage to contend for them. He
despises the cringing cowardice and the
dictates of political bosses. His manly
courage, independent and unswerving ae
votion to the best interests of the people
have won their esteem and admiration, and
placed him in the front ranks among the
reform leaders of the State.
If it were necessary to say more concein
ing him, it could be couched in a word; he
is the prototype of true manhood.
During the recent political campaign Col.
Irby took a foremost part in the Reform
movement. His great political sagacity
readily suggested him as a leader, and he
was not only made chairman of the Reform
executive committee, but as soon as the
Democratic convention endorsed the princi
ples of the Reform element of the party Irby
was made chairman of the State Democratic
The great political acumen shown by him
during this campaign stamped him as a
leader of the first order, and thereafter his
political star began to rapidly rise.
When the legislature met Col. Irby, al
most with one accord, was elected speaker,
and his friends and political foes alike bear
testimony to the fact that no speaker before
him has ever conducted the business of the
house with more fairness and more expedi
It was only after his election as speaker
that he became prominent by being men
tioned in connection with the United States
senatorship. Being a young, energetic, and
working member of tne reform movement,
Col. Irby's candidacy early met with enthu
siastic approval on the part of the legisla
ture. Other gentlemen, representing the
same ideas as advocated by Col. Iroy, di
vided the vote with him on several ballots,
but there had hardly been a doubt, from
the beginning of the contest, that Col. Irby
would be our next United States senator,
as the vote of the two houses finally de

I am now 28 years old, and from

Carolina, where I was put under the
treatment of an eminent physician.
The niedicines given wue had only a
temporary effect, for shortly after my

off than ever before. In 1885 I dis
