False Rumors Again.
On former occasions The Times has
found it necessary to warn our people
not to believe what is told them till
it is verified. We do so again. Last
week false rumor after false rumor
was circulated, among which were,
that the Darlington trouble was
caused by constables searching pri
vate residences in Darlington, and
that Governor Tillman had to seek
.the penitentiary for protection. Both
rumors were equally false. Desper
ate efforts are making to turn our
people from their principles, but
falsehood will never do it.
The Manning Guards' Armory Raided,
and the Guns Taken.
LAst Sunday in our town there was a
suppressed excitement, and only those that
saw the movements of certain ones could
discover what was the matter. These men
supposed their movements were very secret,
but they were being watched and each step
taken by noted. They congregated in
Amall groups and held whispered conversa
tions, which finally resulted in their going
up into the Manning Guards' armory an
carrying away the guns and ammunition.
This was a very unfortunate step on their
part, and in cooler moments it would not
have happened. They allowed their sym
pathy for their Darlington fri2ds to get
the mastery over them. and without count
ing the cost they seized these guns. As soon
as this was done messengers were at once
put to work to arouse the country, and
while one of the messengers was preparing
to carry his message of a call to arms, Capt.
Davis learned of what had occurred, and
immediately demanded- the surrender of
the guns. After some discussion between
Capt. Davis and these misguided men, he
succeeded in having the guns restored a
the armory. not a minute too soon, for into
few minutes more tho messengers would
have been on their way, and only God
knows what the result would have been.
This whole afair is a most deplorable one,
to be regretted by all, and far beit from us
-to increase the feeling that existed the past
few days not only in the unfortunate com
munity where the trouble arose, but right
here amo,ng ourselves. We feel that it is
the duty of every true citizen to use his in
fluence in restoring a better stats of affairs.
To indulge in scolding would do no good,
and with the hope that the unfortunate
events ofthe past few days will soon be
blotted out, and that peace and a brotherly
spirit will soon come to our people, we re
frain from expressing that which under
other circumstances wouldi be expressed
through these columns by us. We will say,
however, that if the affair that took place in
our town last Sunday had been persisted in,
that night would have closed on Manning
with a scene that makes us shudder to
think of it. All of us, both in town and
from the country, made a fortunate escape.
FEAR, OR WHAT I
A -Majority of the' Manning Gaards
Flank-The Heroes Who Did Their
Last Fridaf everiing Captain W. C. Davis
received ord'a from Governor Tillmanto
get the Manning Guards in readiness to go
to Darlington to aid in preserving the
-peace. He at once replied that he would
obey the order, and went to work summon
ing his men to the armory. In a short
time the news spread about the town and
some citizens went among the members of
the company and used their persuasive
powers to prevent the obedience of orders.
At first a large number of the company ex
pressed a willingness to do their duty, but
finally allowed themselves to be persuaded
by those who did not want the orders of
thegovernor respected. Later in the night
another telegram was received ordering the
company to take a special train which
would convey them to the scene of disturb
ance. About 2.1.5 a. m. the special train
arrived and on it was Adjutant and Inspeo
tor General Fairley. The boys got aboard
and even there the citizens prevailed on
some to turn back. They actually made
one ofthe boys get off from the train by
force. From her" the train went to Charles
ton to get the Charleston eompanies, but
those companies refused to move, and our
boys were brought back Saturday night
without having been ordered on to Darling
The names of the men who knew their
duty and willingly went to perform it were:

In this connection we will state that Mr.
Charles Bidgill, when notified that he
would be needed responted, but during
the night was told by Cptain Davis that he
could ~ohome and report the next morning
at 7 o'coc. Mr. Ridgill went home and
did not receive any further notice from his
captain, but promptly next morning he ap
peared at the armory in full uniform ready
to go with his company, and when he found
they had gone without him he was disap
pointed. When the company returned,
they were marched to their armory, and be
fore being dismissed the captain, in a grace
ful speech, complimented them for having
proven themselves worthpof the name of
The Man.ining Guards was a pride-of the
town, and from the names enrolled the peo
pie believed that when they were called to
do duty for the State not a man able to
draw a sword or shoulder a gun would be
found sulking or refusing, but when the
commander-in-chief of the m:ilitary of
South Carolina did call them, where ! oh,
where were they? WVell a large majority
did not respond when their State called
them, but they that diid will always be re
membered in the hearts of the people, and
the people will take a pride in pointing to
these men and say, "We are proud of the
gallant men that responded to their coun
Those who used their inluence to have
the Governor's orders disobeyed created the
impression on the minds of a number of
the men that if they went to Darlington
they would be called upon to aid the State
constabulary in searching private resi
dences, and to shoot down citizens. These
men were either in ignorance of the nature
of the order or for political purposes used
their influence for the prevention of Gov.
Tillman's determination to put down an
insurrection that was commenced. Our
own citizens were not alone in using their
influence with the men, but they were as
sisted by a Philadelphia drummer for a dry
goods house. Gov. Tillmnan did not issue
an order t< the military to aid in searches
or to shoot citizens, but his order was to
preserve the peace. Thank God, there are
some men in our local company that under
stood the order, and that had love of country
enough in them to spurn the gratuitous so
licitations of the administration's political
opponents, aided by a Philadelphia drum
Is Met on His Own Dung 11111 by Oi
Congressman McLaurin's speech at Spa
tanburg was practically as follows:
Mr. Chairman and Fellow Citizens <
Spartanburg: You must not expect muc
from me to-day, because it was with coi
siderable hesitation and at the last momex
that I concluded to attend "as a looker-o
in Venice," and not as a participant in thi
meeting. I appreciate the spirit of courtes
and fair play that induced the crowd to gis
me such a warm invitation to speak. M
Wilson has talked about the birth of tI:
Reform Movement in Spartanburg count;
but I saw the baby born in Marlboi
in 1885, and housed and bedded the moth(
and father of it-for Tillman was both. 1
whole past has been devoted to the cause <
reform, and my future and the future <
my children depend upon whether thi
movement shall be made a great, gloriot
and grand success or whether it shall 1
prostituted and made a disgrace and r<
proach to every man who has ever had an:
thing to do with it, by miserable, selfisi
scheming politicians, who have no intere:
in it save the dollars and cents they ca
make out of it. The only place that I has
heard any complaint in regard to my cours
as a Reformer, has been from a certain litt
organ in your eity.
Editor Gantt: I suppose you are refe
ring to me?
McLaurin: If the cap fits you, wear i
Gantt: The cap fits me and it's a bi
AtcLaurin: Yes, Gantt, about the size <
your mouth and that is a big one. But
have something more important to tal
about than Gantt.
It was Spartanburg and the up tountr
that gave the proper direction to the later
and neglected industries of the State. Tb
growth of your cities, the development c
your manufactories, the improvement i
your agricultuie, in spite of the Lard timei
already attest your remarkable success an
have given inspiration and hope to th
lower section of your State, which is begir
ning to follow your example. During tb
trying days of reconstruction, this Piec
mont Belt, with its white majority of bravo
liberty-loving men and women, was tb
hope and mainstay of white supremacj
and without your help the low countr
would never have been able to free itsel
from the incubus of carpetbag governmen
So I hope it will be with your present p(
litical affairs. We have now a great victor
in the suecess of the Reform Movemen
but if we are to secure its benefits we mu,
move in the right direction. The worl
does not stand still, it moves on, and i
"boots" not now to talk about what v
have done, when our people in their fina:
cial distress are asking us on every hauc
"What are you going to do next?'' V
must look to the future and "let the dea
past bury its dead." 1 do hope that yon
meeting here may give such a direction t
public thor ht and discussion that it ma
act as an inspiration on the rest of th
State, making as forget our past difference:
bury our quarrels and uniting again unde
proper leaders, through the Reform Move
ment, make a broader Democracy, a ha I
pier people, a greater and more prosperon
State. 1 see nothing in our old Refort
platform of 1890 requiring discussion, uE
less it be the constitutional convention, an
no one seems to be discussing or opposin
that. "Our friends, the enemy," or th
Conservatives, have long since abandone
their fight against the Reform platform
have in fact adopted it-and now seem t
be waiting for us "to set the pace" in thi
Iet us be wise and prudent and giv
them no cause for complaint. If they d
not abuse us, let us not abuse them, and
will do them the credit of saying that the
have learned wisdom from experience, an
are waiting to see whether we are going I
make the best use ef our success and oi
portunities, or whether we are going I
make fools of ourselves, as most parties d
when they meet with a little success.'
We cannot expect, of course, for the Ne.
and Courier and The State to do us justici
or act wisely or impartially, because ths
seems to be impossible to them. But let r
remember that they do not reflect the seni
ments of a lag~e-majority of what we ca
Conservatives in the State, who approve<
our platform, but have reluctantly hel
bck because they did not like this, thatc
the other man in the Reform party. Let i
remember, my friends, that as the part
in power, in charge of the machinery <
the Democratic party and of the State go'
enent, we are r,ecesaily and right]
held responsible for the character of tI
campaign we inaugurate.
It would be very remarkable, fellow cit
zens, if we as Reformers had made no nmi
takesand,therefore,itis aot anacknowledg<
ment of weakness for us to admit that a
have. Generally speaking, such as ha,
been made are not material and I will ni
dwell upon them.
Editor Gantt, having recovered frorm h
irst experience in interrupting the speake
attempted to cross-question him some mor
Presing to the front he said: Are yo
going-to support Butler or Tillman for tI
McLaurin: I will support the man wh
stands flatfooted for our demands.
Gantt: That is not a direct answer.
have been telegraphed from Washingtoi
that you intend to support Butler.
McLarin: Neither you nor your bo:
in Washington can bulldoze me. I wi
support the man who must truly represeni
our principles. I will not bind myselfi
advance to support any man until he at
nounes just exartly where he stand:
(This answer was perfectly satisfactory I
the crowd, which agreed that Tiliman shoul
be supported, but only so long as he sul
ported the demands of the Farmers' All
ance.) There is one question-for whie
the Reform Movement is not responsibli
but which has been forced upon us-an
in dealing with it, while our representativ4
in the legislature may have undertakcn I
do too much, or may not have met wit
public expectation fully, still I must cor
tend that they did the best they could,<
at least thought so, in giving us what a
call the dispensary law. We have the rigl
to correct our own mistakes and to perfet
and improve the law., and I do not hesital
to tell von that I believe it is capable<

thing will happen unless the conservatism
and good sense of the American people are
f brought into play. The wealth-producers
h of this great nation are not going to starve
amid the plenty their brawn and brain has
made. Take a survey of the situation.
What do you see? The public mind was
never more unsettled, the public pulse
never more feverish, strikes, riots and <
y lockouts never more frequent. The coun
e try was never more flooded with tracts, 1
pamphlets and revolutionary literature. 3
The doctrine of anarchy is almost as openly
preached in Chicago and other large cities I
as is the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. I 1
have been for six months at the centre of I
this great country of ours. I can hear the

hot pulsations of the fevered blood as it I
s flows through the veins and arteries that t

Let us read aright the signs of theltimes I
given by a beneficent Creator for our guid
ance. Would that the wise men of the na
tion in fifty-five and sixty had been warned <
at the fanaticism of John Brown. Last f
n summer I was at Harper's Ferry. I saw I
the lovely Shenandoah and the Potomac t
come down through the mountains, whose I
tops tower fifteen hundred feet above, and I
unite their waters in one. I stood on the t
spot where this fanatic and madman, with
his little army of twelve, started war upon
a mighty nation. I saw the spot where he t
was hung as a traitor and a felon. Then I
g thought of the bloody war; the cool, dogged I
persistence, the unavailing bravery and
chivalry of the grey that dashed itself to
k pieces like the foam of the sea upon the
rocks; the precious lives wasted in battle,
the groans and tears of a mighty nation
y "passing under the rod."
t Then away off toward the sunset sbadows, t
I hear now another fanatic, another mad
man, Coxey. with his army, the army of the
unemployed. At first received with
laughter, now their steady tramp and the
hoarse muttering of their despair can be
e heard for many a league. What will hap- t
pen ? Who can tell ? t
John Brown was hung like a dog. They
pointed out to me the spot, a few feet from t
the blue Shenandoah, where he was buried.
e His bones, that had mouldered for thirty t
years in the damp ground, were taken up a
few years ago and reinterred, fnd a marble
monument placed over them.
It is not a question now of freedom of
the few milliou blacks from chattel slavery.
It is a question of the emancipation of our
race from financial shackles, that are infin
itely more galling to Anglo-Saxon manhood.
It is a trite saying that we are living in a
revolutionary epoch. Agitation and dis
e content seem inseparable from progress.
Almost every step in our upward flight
has been marked by revolution. emanating
e from the lowly and discontented among
r mankind. Paraphrasing the words of a
distinguished author: The liberty we en
joy came through the blood of brave men t
' and the tears of gentle woien. Genera
tions have passed away, fruitful fields been
turned over to graves. Along the road be
r hind us lie the ruins of great cities and of
mighty nations gone forever in the smoke
of battle, martyrs to the cause of liberty.
s Has it been reserved for the glorious civili.
zation of the nineteenth eentury to afford a
bloodless revolution, where justice and rea
son, not passion and force, held sway ?
I hope so. I beliere it. You cannot re
e press these popular uprisings by force.
You can keep them down awhile, but the
disease is organic and will last until the
cause is removed. It -is generally admitted
a that the cause of our ills is in the financial
question, and every doctor has his remedy.

The truth of the busines is, we need some
f gratstateman who can take this system of
ours and mould and change it to suit the
r times. There has not been a new idea of
s human government born since the day of 3
Y Thomas Jefferson, and we have outgrown
f the swaddling clothes of the imufant.
SThe fact of the matter is, there was more
trnth than poetry in -what Mr. Hewitt said
e the other day, only he should have applied
it to Eastern Democrats and cuckoos. John1
tAllen said that it was personal, because he
was acquainted with him. I live in the
- L;ope that when Mr. Hewitt forms my nc
e quantance,- that he will change his mind, or
perhaps his digestion will be better, for
t from what I can gather he is a whinin gold
dyspeptic. (Laughter and applause.)
s Now every body seems to agree that the]
trouble is in our financial system and every
- doctor prescribes his own remedy.
u Dr. Cleveland said it was the ShermanI
e act and prescribed repeal physic~, and the
patient got worse. Then Dr. Wilsou pre-1

hSo it is with us now. Trhe country is

s ow, I want to tell you what I believe
0 Thirty years ago there was a conspiracy
i formed to rob the people of the wealth that
ttheir labor created. The conspirditors have
r pursued it with the same cold-blooded fe-1
e rocity that the tiger pursues its victim.
Lt Everybody is familiar with the demonetiza
t tion of silver and the part played by Sher
e man and others. Let us jump all those
fyears and get to the present.
"Ever since the demonetization of silver,
r rcshav steadily fallen until the zero
pint has bout been reached and we are
ir rapidly becoming a nation or paupers and
e millionaires. The last act in the drama is
it the issue of bonds. Now I want to tell you
what that means and how through such an
-issue of bonds the vast wealth of this na
e tion can in a few years be concentrated in
h the hands of a few men. .\y authority for
' the statement is a speech made by .Judge
Culberson, of Texas, upon the floor of the
it house of representatives.
In the first place, to preface: The price
ilof every article depends largely upon the
amount of money there is in circulation
available for purchasing'iursioses. By in
I creasing the purchasing power of the (lollar
e you make the man who has it richer and
e the man who has to pay it poorer, because
it takes more of his labor or his cotton to
buy a dollar.
'That act of the drama was consummated
when the final dlemonetiz-ition of silver was
e accomplished. When we went to the gold
standard, prices had to readjnsat themselves.
-It was just like water running downz hill,
e and they will adjust themselves, if values
-run down until a cent gets as big as a dollar
e was a few years ago.
e The next act in the drama is: "The gold
-reserve must be kept up." They first ille
aly an d unjustly misconstrue the Sherman
act so as to oplete this ~re.-erve, and then
cry out that we must issue more bonds to
it buy more gold. Now here you have the
most gigantic fra--.d that was ever perpe
-trated on the lace of the earth.
s Did you ever see an endless chain ? That
a is what a bond issue is like. They sold
;e $55,000,000 of bonds for gold and did not
e add a dollar to the gold reserve, Do voun
know how it is? Well I will explain the
~mod us operandi.-Wall street has its fangs I
deep in the throat.
Under the Sherman act as construed,
when bullion is put in the treasury, silver
h certificates are issued against it. These,
certificates read "payable in coin." Any
-common-sense interpretation would say in
silver coin; but no, "silver is not money,"
- therfore they are redeemable in gold coin.
d Now this necessarily depletes the reserve.
e Very well, sell bonds. What does Wall
street do? Why they simply present at;
r- one window $55,000,000 of silver certificates,
' get the gold, then step over to another
* window, buy the $55,000,000 of bonds and

Odditional dollar of gold in the treasury.
rhere is no limit to it, no war to StO) it,
mxcept to remonetize silver. This infamoun
hing is only bounded by the almost limit
ess credit of our country, and under pres
mnt conditions we are as helpless as babes.
L'hey are only restrained by the fear of
4kiliing the goose that lays the golen egg.'
Do you know what bonds mean? Let me

A few years ago, these wise financier-,
asting their eyes over the world to seek
Lew investments, saw Egypt-with [ita fer
ile valley of the Nile, aid with its ignorant
mt contented and well-fed people. They
!ttod out a vessel, took their ladies, nnd
rent on a cruise to Egypt, and when they
ot there they found the king a vain, weak

aid: "'Wby you have a grand country

s long as this foreign money wis flowing

40,000,000 of interest had to be met each

very hor:e, dog and sheep in the land was

We are in favor of coining all the gold
.nd all the silver free. That is right-nine
enths of the people are agrecl on thsat
>int. Not because the metal, gold or sil
-er, is money but because tho people from
orce of habit have been accustomed to use
t as money. It is a matter of fact the sov

ust so with the money of the people. It
akes no difference how it reaches them
f they only get the proper article in suffi

rhen it receives the stamp of authority by

if our currency requires no assistance to be
istributed among the people of our coun

Whereas, Section 519 of the General
Statutes of this State declares that
"the Governor shall have authority
whenever in his judgement it shall
be necessary to arm the constabulary,
and in any emergency to assume the
sole control of the whole or any part
of the municipal police in cities and
incorporated towns, and to authorize
the chief constable of the State, or
any deputy chief constable, to com
mand assistance in the execution of
process, suppressing riots, and in pre
serving the peace;" and
Whereas, it is made the duty of,
and the power is given, said police to
enforce the statute known as the
"dispensary law," but that instead of
obeying the requirements of said law
the said police, except in a very few
towns, have been an obstruction
and are active aiders and abettors of
those who are defying the law; and
Whereas, under the same Statute
the Governor is given power to ap
point State constables for the pur
pose of its enforcement; and
Whereas, the rebellious and lawless
elements of society have hounded and
insulted these offleers and sedulously
educated the public mind to resist
ance, causing several encounters, re
sulting in bloodshed, between con
stables and illicit whiskey sellers,
producing intense excitement and
danger to the peace and welfare of
Now, therefore, I, Benjamin R.
Tillman, Governor of the State of
the South Carolina, do issue this, my
proclamation, giving full and official
notice to the municipal authorities of
every city and incorporated town in
the State of South Carolina, and to
the police and marshals thereof, that
under the powers given me by said
Section 519 the emergency contem
plated has arisen and does now exist,
and that I do hereby assume sole con
trol of the whole force of municipal
police and marshals of the several
cities and incorporated towns of this
State. They are hereby ordered to
enforce all laws on the Statute books,
together with all municipal ordi
nances and orders from municipal
authorities not inconsistent with the
purposes of this proclamation. As
soon as the emergency which is now
upon us shall no longer exist I will
relinquish control and restore the
