WNEDAYI MUE I109
NTAND BY THE DEMOCRACY.7
In last Monday's New York Herald
we find the following expression of
opinion from Dr. J. William Stokes,
president of the South Carolina State
"Speaking generally, the order is
in good shape in this State and is
making satisfactory progress. We
are unloading some material, but re
sulta show a net gain and a more
compact homogeneous membership.
"We are organizing constantly,
though the most of the State has al
ready been covered. Within the past
month the State organizer has had
calls from two different counties, and
the result of his visits are appartnt.
"Outside of the political press and
a small circle of political speculators
the question of independent political
action has not created a ripple, be
cause it has not been discussed. In
dependent political action by the Al
liance is out of the question so long
as the Alliance constitution remains
as it is. It cannot be changed before
next winter, and our people are not
disposed to worry about the bridge
before they get to it.
"From a close and frequent contact
with them in every quarter of the
State I can safely say they may be
counted on to stand squarely by all
the demands of the Alliance, Govern.
or Tillman to the contrary notwith
standing. The temper of the people
is such that they will repudiate any
man, however trusted, who cannot
support the Alliance demands, just as
they repudiated Hampton last fall."
This is a remarkable paper, and
one that in our opinion will fail to
find a responsive chord in the Alli
ance. The premises on which Presi
dent Stokes bases his conclusions are
not true, therefore what he says
The people of the State did not re
pddiate Hampton because he was op
posed to the Alliance, but because he
did not denounce the independent
Haskellian movement. Had he, like
a patriot which his friends claim he
ii, denounced this independent move
ment the spme as he had done when
his own personal friends were not in
volved, he would have been to-day as
greatly loved by the people as ever
mortal was loved; but his patriotism
was not sublime enough to cause him
to denounce the Haskell movement,
and the people repudiated him, just
as they will repudiate President
Stokes should be endeavor to coun
tenance any third party movement.
The farmers of this State were born
and bred within the Democratic par
ty, and until they are fully convinced,
first, that they cannot obtain relief In
the Democratic party, and, second,
that they can get what they want in
a new party, the farmers, the true and
tried yeomanry of the State, will
stand firmly on the Democratic plat
President Stokes says he is in close
end frequent contact with the farm
-era of the State and knows that they
will stand by any demand of the Alli
ance. Speaking for Clarendon coun
ty wesay he isegregiously mistaken.
We do not believe there are a dozen
farmers in this county, who would
sacrifice their religious or political
opinions to any demands of the Alli
ance. The constitution forbids any
such emand, and the attempted en
forcement of such a demand would
ruin the Alliance in Clarendon
We, too, are a member of the Farm
ers' Alliance, and love and honor the
principles of the order; we are in
"close and frequent contact" with the
members of the order, and we have
yet to hear a single member of the
A1Hiance in Clarendon county say a
favorable word for the third party
movement. Scarcely six months ago
a thousand Alliancemen in this coun
ty would have cheerfully sacrificed
their lives in defense of the Demo
cratic party, and to-day they stand as
firm as ever.
Col. J. G. Gibbes, agent of the Sink
ing Fund Commission, will be in
Manning in a few days, to look after
the abandoned lands in this county.
He offers to survey any one's swamp
lands free of charge provided he is
furnished with the old plats and sur
veys. The desire is to get all these
old lands on the tax books and make
them bear their share of taxation.
Fuli information can be had from
Sheriff Bradham. Two tracks of such
unknown lands are advertised in this
week's paper, aggregating 10,200
In Sumter's court of common pleas
next week a very unusual case will
be tried. The late W. 3. Reynolds
had charge of property belonging to a
sister who was an inmate of the luna
tic asylum, and at the end of the war
Reynolds sold cotton belonging to
this trust estate, receiving Confeder
ate money for it. Reynolds died a
few years ago, leaving a will whereby
he left his property to his family of
ilegitimiate colored children. Now
his sister's heirs have brought suit
against his estate for the value of the
cotton and interest.
A sensational report from Kershaw,
in Tuesday's State, says that two men,
Rhodes and Swaggart, from Winns
boo, unearthed a buried treasure
that had been buried during the war
on Lynches creek below the mouth
of Banging Rock creek. The amount
unearthed is said to be $163,000 be
sides jewelry. It was buried there
by Sherman's men, and people have
been digging for it for the past twen
ty-four years. A man by the name
of Rhodes on his death-bed wrote a
letter to Col W. E. Johnson, of Cam
den, in which he confessed having
buried the money and gave a descrip
tion of the place. Several parties
saw the men in the neighborhood,
and the story is firmly believed that
they found the hidden treasure.

pleasant for us as well as the man who is
disappointed and indignant because he can
not obtain the knowledge he derives from
the paper that he willingly pays for. And
the editor knowing that the fault is not his,
at once begins an investigation and finds
that some meddlesome neighbor has taken
the liberty of using somebody else's bought

edge or consent of the owner. News papers
are educators and every family should have
them in their household, and if people t

would have some effect on this dead-beat
habit they have been indulging in, and cause
them to subscribe themselves in order that 1
they might satisfy their cravings for news.
If a person is too mean and stingy to pay
the small amount of one dollar and itty

A Sumter Lawyer Charged With Forgery.
STrrER, June 9.--In the court of
sessions to-day no important cases
were tried and no convictions were
The grand jury made a special pre
sentment charging John R. Keels,
attorney at law, with violating Sec
tion 2,527 of the General Statues of
this State in changing and falsely ut
tering a note given to him by A. F.
Cousar, dated March 13, 1891, by
raising said note from nineteen to three
hundred and nineteen dollars, and
charging him also with having raised
another note from fifty to two hun
dred and fifty dollars. The solicitor
will issue bills of indictment against
John R. Keels for these offences to
morrow, but the cases cannot be tried
at this term of the Court, as the petit
juries had been discharged when the
presentment was made.
Mr. Keels is a member of the
Sumter Bar and this affair has created
a great sensation here.
The grand jury also presented for
the second time that the bond of

There is more catarrh in this section of

years doctors pronounced it a local disease,
and prescribed local remedies, and by con
stantly failing to cure with local treatment,
pronounced it incurable. Science has
proven catarrh to be a constitutional dis
ease, and therefore requires constitutional
treatment. Hall's Cat'rrh Cure, ma...ufac

Boxes for window gardens need to

they are best stained rather than pain

are the best colors; i. is not in good

How TO TAKE CAuE OF A PINO.
-With proper care and attention a
good piano should last a family a
lifetime, says Charles H. Steinway,
the piano ~manufacturer. If this is
not given it, the piano will in time
become harsh and "tin-pany," and
afford little satisfaction or delight to
its owner. Ordinary practice, wheth
er by achild or a grown-up person,
will not injure a piano in any way.
It is not necessary to be a profession
al piano player, and to know exactly
with what force to strike the keys,
in order to keel) the instrument in
good condition. Of course, it will
not be improved by thumping the
case, or by striking the keys with any
Ihard substance. Neither does this
remark ap)ply to schools and institu-j
tions where playing is taught and
the instrument is used continuously
for ten or twelve hours every day.
In the latter case the felt portions
will wear out sooner thean if it was
used in a private family.
The matter of tuning should not
be neglected, and should never be
intrusted to any other than an expe
rienced person. Incapable tuners
often work irreparable injury to the
