They Are After Them.
It is a rare thing, that Manning ever in
dulges in the sensational, but for the past
week or more several strangers have been
seen about town, apparently looking for
work, sight-seeing or something
else of no special business to our citizens
that are engaged in their daily vocations.
These stranges turned out to be detectives
seeking out the parties that laid our town
in ashes. Whether they have succeeded
remains to be seen later. however there
was confusion in the temple of the thieves
yesterday. The detectives caused the ar
rest of Lewis Burgess, George Epperson,
Alex Bertrand, Bill Picket, and Isreal
James. All of them were lodged in jail
and search warrants were obtained from
Trial Justice Timmons. At the house of
Lewis Burgess a considerable quantity of
stolen goods were found, and the detectives
think they are on track of important devel
opments. Of course they ate not giving
away their plans, but one of them told us
that before the perpetrators of the recent
incendiary fires will be in the hands of the
law. There are now two detective agencies
represented here, one from Atlanta and the
other from Charleston. The work so far
accomplished was done by the Charleston
set. One of the Charleston detectives got
on the trail of a man believed to be a leader
of the Manning fire gang and followed him
to Sumter. Arriving there he found his
man gone, but his trip was not fruitless, for
while looking around Sumter he picked up
a coon by the name of Pleasant Davis, who
is wanted for a murder committed in an
other county. To say that certain of our
colored population was thrown in confusion
by the arrests would not be fully expressing
it. They seemed to be at sea, and the faces
of some of them showed signs of, "my turn
next." The work of ferreting out the crime
is steadily going on, and the detectives ap
pear to be conident of soon being able to
cage the gang.
Buy or Subscribe.
We were told last Saturday by a man liv
ing near Manning that if we would change
our political views our subscription lists
would increase rapidly, as it is conceded
that we publish one of the best county
newspapers in the State. We informed the
gentleman that we are anxious to increase
our subscription lists, in fact would be
pleased to have every man in the county
reading our paper, but if it is to be done by
our sacrificing our opinions we would pre
fer to continue going along with the pa
trons we have, than to increase the patron
a e and sacrifice our manhood. The Times
advocates the principles of the Reform
Movement sincerely, and those opposing
our views, even if they will not patronize
us, must at least give us credit for being
consistant. There are some that will not
subscribe to the Times on account of its
politics, but they want the news and to get
it will either borrow the paper from a
neighbor or come to the office and beg tor
a "sample copy." It is always a pleasure to
accommodate people, and we have given
away as many "sample copies" as we care
to. If anyone, not a subscriber, wants a
copy of the paper they can get it at our
office for the small sum of five cents. Last
week we.had a number of applications for
"sample copies," and some of the applicants
took offense when we required pay for
them. One man said to us if he "was a
Tillmanite we would not have charged
him." This man either forgets that it costs
us money to get out our paper or his "gall"
befuddles his brain. Whenever we desire
to send out sample copies we shall do so
upon our own motion, and whenever a copy
of the paper is wanted it is left with us
whether we shall charge for it. This is one
of the rights we claim, whether it pleases
newspaper spoungers or not. If a man
feels that it is sacrificing his principles to
have his name on our subscription lists, to
be consistent he should not let the paper
come in contact with his angers. If a man
won't pay for the paper he should be too
proud to spounge it. Some men say they
will not support our paper because "it is a
Tillman sheet," but in a majority of these
cases the true reason is, they have never
supported any paper. They have spounged
wherever they could, or obtain'd it on
credit and were never known to pay for it.
We want no dead beats; we want, and will
have only such men as have pride enough
to pay for what they get. A glance over
our subscription lists will show the names
of the people that pay their debts, and
these lists are always open for inspection.
If we receive an inquiry from abroad as to
the standing of so and so, we look at our
lists and report the fact that the person has
paid us, and the result is the .party in
quired about usually succeeds in accom
pishing what business he has with the
inquiring party. If the name is not on our
lists we simply make the plain statement
that "no such individual appears on our
lists," and observation has taught us that
the inquiries stop with that information.

Of the Arch Couspirators that are Ruin

Readers are familiar with the Hazzard
circular which was issued in '62 by Eng
lish capitalists and circulated confidentially
among American bankers. They are also C
familiar with the Buel circular issued Aug. t
12, 1887. by the Bank association in New s
York city, and confidentially circulated C
among capitalists and bankers. A third
circular to utterly destroy the liberties of
the people and rivet on them the chains of t
slavery, was issued March 12, 1893, by the 9
Bankers' association, and sent to all 11a
tional banks. It has just started on its I
rounds in the Reform press. We clip it I
from the Chicago Express, one of the livest
of Reform Newspapers. It reads as follows,
and will be known as
THE PANIC BULLETIN.
DAn SIi:-The interest of the national
bankers require immediate financial legis- c
lation by congress. Silver, silver certifi
cates and treasury notes must be retired
and the national bank notes upon a gold t
basis made the only money. This will re
quire the authorization of from $500,000,
000 to $1,000,000,000 of new bonds as a
basis of circulation. You will at once re
tire one-third of your loans. Be careful to
make a money stringency felt among influ
ential business men. Advocate an extra t
session of congress for the repeal of the
purchase clause of the Sherman law and
act with the other banks of your city in
securing a large petition to congress for its
unconditional repeal, per accompanying
form. Use personal influence with con- 1
gressmen and particularly let your wishes
be known to your senators. The future
life of national banks as fixed and safe in
vestments depends upon immediate action,
and as there is an increasing sentiment I
in favor of government legal tender notes r
and silver coinage.'
The above circular reveals a plot against I
the rights and liberties of the people with- t
out a parallel in the history of the ages. A
careful reading and analysis of it and a
comparison of it with the actions of Presi
dent Cleveland, Secretary Carlisle and Sen- c
ator Sherman prove conclusively they are r
in the conspiracy and because of their offi- r
cial positions have been elected to execute
it. President Cleveland promptly convened
congress in extraordinary session and sent
a message to that body asking the uncondi
tional repeal of "the purchase clause" of the
Sherman act as outlined in the circular. 1
In addition he used all the patronage of the t
high office he holds to force congressmen to
vote for its repeal.
The banks in the meantime hoarded all e
the currency they could. They not only a
drew in their circulation and refused to
discount loans, but they refused to pay out I
deposits. Senator Voorhees declared on
the floor of the senate that the banks had I
$1,000,000,000 hoarded in their vaults. They
had petitions gotten up all over the country
urging congress to unconditionally repeal
"the purchase clause" of the Sherman act. 1
Not only that, but 5delegations from many s
of the large cities were sent to Washington m
to urge its repeal, all of which was outlined t
in the circular. As soon as "the purchase 0
clause" was repealed, which Senator Sher- c
man advocated with all his powers, the wily il
senator announced on the Jloor of the sen- a
ate that the condition of the treasury called il
for the issue and sale of $200,000,000 of I
bonds for gold. He is now doing all he t
can to have it done. This, too, was out- f
lined. To pave the way for Secretary Car
lisle to perform his part in the plot the d
bankers of New York city gave a banquet at s
Delmonico's and invited the secretary to ex- t
plain the financial situation. In his speech t
he said, "Gold and only gold is money in
This is ontlined in the circular as the end t
and aim of the bankers. When he made
this assertion he knew there is no law in
this country on which to rest it. In fact ine
his several statements of the condition of
the treasury he has always said the standard
silver dollars are "a fnll legal tender,"t
wich is a fact, in execution of the partt
assigned to him in this vile plot Secretary
Carlisle, law or no law, hase adiertised for
bids for the issue and sale of bonds for gold.
The bankers of New York have subscribeda
for $45,000,000; those of Boston for $5,000,- 1
000, and those of other Eastern cities for 1
amounts raising the subscriptions to $54,- i
000,000. There is a squabble now as to e
who will get them. There is where we I
have landed in consummation of this plot. a
The actions of President Cleveland, Sec
retary Carlisle and Senator Sherman prove I
clearly they are in the conspiracy and be- (
cause of their official positions have been
selected to execute the plot. So far they t
have acted their parts well; so have the s
banks. The great battle predicted by Chiet t
Justice Chase between the people on one 1
side and the national banks on the other a
has opened and will be fiercely fought an
til the people are reduced to~ slavery or the
banks obliterated. There is no middlet
ground to occupy. The fight will be a
combat a outranmce, that is to the death.

Only the beginning of the sorrows and
woes of the people have been seen if the
conspirators succeed in the consummation
of their plot. Their circular clearly shows
they will not stop until every silver coin,t
every silver certificate and every .treasuryt
note is furnded into interest-bearing gold
bonds to be used as a basis for the errcula
tion of bank bills. If they succeed in this
"gold and only gold," as Secretary Carlisle
announced in his speech at the Delmonico
banquet, will be recngnized as money. .

The Burglars at Summnerton.
Summerton, S. C., March 1.-The rob
beries reported in The Times as occuring
around here sometime ago hasve not abated
at all but have rather become worse. Night
before last the Summerton depot was entered
for the second time and some dry goods
were stolen and various articles were scat
tered around in indiscriminate confusion.
On the same night the C. 8: & N. depot at
Silver was entered with burglarous intent
but what was stolen there, I hai e been una
ble to find out.
Last night the hack window of the drug
store of Dr. T. L. Burgess was broken open
and the store robbed. The parties seem to
know their business, for the safe was brok
en open apparently without troubleand the
contents appropriated. They then went up
stairs in the dental office of Dr. J- H. Bur
gess, but failed to find anything of impor
tance there, except a spirit lamp which they
used to light up for future operations. Then
they stole a considerable amount of cigars,
some spectacles and cologne. Cigar stumps
were scattered around and the store left in
confusion. All this clearly shows that we
have an experienced set of burglars depre
dating upon us.

miltation they told Fulmoro he must returi

Ir. Daniel Gray, who lives only a shor

"It is within the purview of cominl
vents that the Conservatives must choose
.n alliance with one wing or the other o
he Reformers. On every side there are
trong indications that the thoughtful-anm
noderate men of the State are becoini
'ery tired of the commotion and estrange
nent of the past three years, and they are
eady to join any movement which promise
abatement of the troubles and dissen
ions which have bronght on sound recomn
)ense in their wake. This is more true o
he Conservatives than it is of the Reform
re, but among each faction there is a posi
ive and unequivocal sentiment agains
urther strife and discord. Intolerance snc
Ljust denunciations must become a thinj
>f the past,and the peopla must demand c
heir leaders that they shall abstain fros
ractices which are degrading and demor
slizing when they appear on the hustings
nd confine themselve to the discussion c
eal issues and principles."

Oar friends of the opposition are chuck
ling in their sleeves over the prospect of a
- division in our ranks. But they are a little
t previous. There will be no division. This
reform movement has no Godfather to carry
it around in his breeche; pocket. It was
born of the people, and they are its masters.
It is bigger than Irby or Shell or Evans or
all the rest put together. It is in the hearts
of the people and they are behind it beneath
it and all through it and the little petty
differences of certain leaders are but bubbles
upon the great ocean of the reform move
ment which will be made to disappear. By
and by the people will be heard from and
these men will be told to cease their petty
jealousies in the face of the enemy and when
the battle is joined the opposition will find
every gun trained upon them as before and
the whole marching as a solid phalanx.
