LOUIS APPELT, Editor.
Wednesday, June 13, 1894.
Mrs. Mary Ellen Lease, the famous
female -politician, is announced a can
didate for Congress at large in the
State of Kansas.
The Prohibition Convention would
not nominate an independent ticket,
much to the discomfiture oi Mr. Gon
zales and Jerry Smith. ,
The military court of inquiry has
made its report to Gov. Tillman.
The report shows a thorough investi
gation and free from white wash.
Let us all lay aside our personal
differences and go to work for the
accomplishment of bringing about a
more united sentiment in the State.
From the way some of the Antis
are applying for admission into the
Reform ranks it would be well to put
out sentinels to keep them all from
coming in at one time. ,
Our last issue of the Times, con
taining Congressman McLaurin's
speechhas attracted considerable at
tention abroad judging from the ap
plications for extra copies of the
Gov. McKinley, of Ohio, ordered
out troops last Thursday to quell the
uprising of mine workers and the
military promptly obeyed. The
same action was taken by Gov. Jones,
of Alabama, with the same result.
S nzales ifelares that he will have
nothing to do with the coming Dem
ocratie primary, because a few white
men in the State that voted for
Weaver wil-be allowed to partici
pate. What a calamity!

vote for a candidate for the Legisla

himself to vote for Ben Tillman for

people of Clarendon want Tillman for
Senator, Tindal for Governor and
McLaurin for Congress.
Our many readers will read with
deep interest the able letter from Rev.
Henry M. Mood that we reproduce
from the Columbia Journal. Mr.
Mood is a student of human nature,
a close observer, and from his long
experience with the ways and man
ners of man he is able to discuss the
liquor problem in that practical man
ner which is characteristic of the
man. If the prohibitionists through
out this State will listen to the good
advice given in Mr. Mood's letter and
act in accordance therewith, the day
will not be far off when the banner of
total prohibition will be wavering
from our State house, and it will be
backed by such a powerful sentiment

According to E. A. Webster, State
chairman of the Republican party,
the News and Courier and State ap
prove of the movement that is being
made by the Republicans to test the
constitutionality of the registration
law. He says these papers have de
clared the law plainly unconstitution
al. The registration law was enacted
long before the Reformers came into
power and the Newa and Courier
never doubted the constitutionality
of the law until now. How strange?
The courts may declare the law un
constitutional, but white man's su
premacy will go on all the same' in
spite of the News and Courier and
State, and national league clubs and
the few malcontents who would
rather see the old order of things
than to have the rule of the masses.

been sent out:

To the Republicans of South Carolina:
At a meeting of the State executive com
mittee held at Columbia on the 15th inst.,
a special committee was appointed consist
ing of the State chairman, Hon. E. M.
Brayton, Major J. H. Fordham and E. J.
Dickerson, Esq., for the purpose of taking
some action to test before the courts the
constitutionality of the registration law.
This committee have consulted with able
and eminent attorneys and have been ad
vised that there is a strong probability of
having this unjust and odious law set aside
as unconstitutional. The times are favor
able and the political situation in the State
is such that an effort of this kind will meet
with the sympathy and support of many of
the best citizens without regard to political
affiliations. Already the News and Courier
and the State have approved of the move
ment and declared the law as plainly un
constitutional, Funds are immediately and
urgently needed that the test cases may be
started at once and prosecuted with as little
delay as possible to the courts of last re
sort. Great interests are at stake, involv
ing not only your right to vote, but that of
your children for many years to come. -At
the election this fall a vote will be taken on
holding a constitutional convention. Every
Republican in the State is interested and
should contribute as he is able to a common

A SHY!STER STATESMAN~.
According to the doctrine of the
opponents of the Reform Movement,
only such as will give obedience to
the wishes and dictates of Wall street
regardless of the solemn promises
made to the people are considered
Democrats. Congressman Rayner,
of Maryland, who was elected upon
the National Democratic platform not
only repudiates the platform, but had
the brazen effronteryin a recent speech
delivered in Congress in referring to
that plank of the Democratic plat
form pledging _the repeal of the tax
npon State bank circulation to lay:
Its explicit character, he admitted;
how it got there he didn't know.
But as far as he was concerned, the
platform might as well have pledged a
repeal of the Ten Commandments:
"I do not know how it may be with
others, but with me the time has not
yet arrived when I have surrendered
my conscience and my convictions to
the keeping of a political convention.
I utterly deny that it lies within the
province or the jurisdiction of a con
vention to trammel me in the dis
charge of my duties by any such de
claration as this. This bill to rep-eal
the tax upon State bac~k circulation
failed to pass at the last Congress in
a Democratie House, and now~ I am
told that because some one ~slipped
these words inato the platform that 1
am to be manacled like a slave and
robbed of the greatest boon that a
free man in these halls can claim, and
that is the right to vote upon ques
tions of public policy in accordance
with the dictates of duty, that it lies
not within the power of any man or
set of men to shackle or trample
Yet our opposition press will day
in and day out abuse the Reform
representatives of South Carolina,
and call them Third partyites, Pop
ulists and everything but Democrats
when they know that not one vote
has been cast but what was in accord
ance with the pledge made at Chicago
and upon which the Democracy was
entrusted with power. Rayner, of
Maryland, was elected upon the Dem
ocratic platform, and so was McLau
rin. The Marylander regards a party
promise a "glittering generality," and
the South Carolinian regards a party
promise a solemn pledge. The form

WATCH OUT 1OR MORE BONDS. c
Congressman Oates, of' Alabama, f
:ne of the President's gouthern
riends, and who recently received I
the Democratic nomination for Gov
ernor, said to a reporter of the At
anta Constitution, who asked him if
he had said that "the money power
had the Government by the leg." re
"Yes, I did say it, and while the
words were not Mr. Cleveland's-I
have been quoted as saying they
were--the sentiment was his. I have
talked a good deal with Mr. Cleveland
and in discussing the financial situa
tion and the condition of the treasury
he has gone so far as to say in the
strong language that is characteristic
of the man, that the New York banks
have such control of the situation
that he, the President, didn't know
what to do."
GONZALES ISGRUN fLED.
"Chickens will come home- to
roost," is an old saying and a true
one. It will be remembered that in
the May convention of 1892 a set of
resolutions was adopted known as the
Latimer resolutions which denouuced
Grover Cleveland as the tool of Wall
street, and that his election would be
a prostitution of Democratic princi
ples. As soon as Cleveland was elect
ed N. G. Gonzales; editor of- the Co
lumbia State, unlimbered his guns of
vituperation and from day to day
kept up a constant fire of abuse upon
the Reform faction. He not only did
this, but with his friends went to
Washington and directed the atten
tion of the authorities to what the
Reformers of this State said about
Mr. Cleveland, in order to prevent
the chosen representatives of the peo
ple from exercising an influence to
wards getting patronage from the
federal government. The effect of
this fight against the Reformors was
a holding up of appointments in this
State, and in some instances a disre
gard for the recommendations made
by the Reform Congressmen. This
condition of affairs continued until
the failure of Mr. Gonzales to get a
consulship which he desired. When
all hope of getting an official crumb
from Mr. Cleveland's table had fled, a
change comes over the spirit of Gon
zales and in last Friday's issue of the
State we read the following:
"We have no reason to doubt the
statement in the Washington Star
an independent paper-that Presi
dent Cleveland used his influence
against the repeal of the State bank
tax. We know that but for his atti
tude of hostility or indifference the
vote would have been very different.
We have been hoping against hope
that Mr. Cleveland would at least rise
to a broad and national view of the
currency question, but we now real
ize that he is obstinate in his purpose
to force upon the country a narrow
and sectional policy, hostie to South
ern interests. It is hardly necessary
to say that if we could have antici
pated this three years ago The Slate
would never have supported him for
the Democratic nomination. His
first term gave no indication of a
course so radical. We can excuse
minor policies which are the product
of his Eastern environments, but we
cannot forgive his desertion of the
platform upon which he gained the
Presidency. At this spot we take our
leave of President Cleveland."
This is really amusing, and it only
shows that it was not the principles
of Grover Cleveland Mr. Gonzales
was defending with so much ability,
but [it was his way of pressing. a
claim for official favor. We imagine
hearing the editor of the State thus
soliloquizing: "I tried my best to
make Cleveland believe the Tillman
ites were not Democrats, and showed
him where they said he was the tool
of'Wall street. I done my best to
make him believe be was my ideal
Statesman, and asked him to give me
a meaisly consulship, but he let me go
on until I spent all the abuse and
vituperation at my command and
then cast me aside. I now say damn
Cleveland, damn Tillman, and damn
me for making this spectacle of my
self. Latimer sized old Grover up
three years ago, but I did not have
sense enough to find it out until too
late, how unfortunate I am. I can
not follow Cleveland any ldnger, and
the Tillmanites won't have anything
to do with me, so I will enjoy the
privilege of cussing out the whole fix
and bid adieu to the Democratic
party, and if I behave myself in the
future I might stand a chance for
recognition with the brother in black
for whose political advancement I
have been craving ever since Tillmnan
became the exponent of white man's
Bowden of the Cotton Plant, and
Gonzales of the State, are two polit
ical .orphan twins, both without a
political parent, and neither knows
whither he is drifting. The news
papers throughout the state should
treat them tenderly because there is
a possibility of one of them at least
being adopted by the Democracy.
Bowdena has already been accorded
the privilege'of attending the Demo
cratic frolic in August if he will be a
good boy and keep his face clean,
but Gonzales is a head strong child,
and we doubt if he will go to the
frolic if a clean face is required.
We clip from the National Watch
man a number of edito1-ial paragraphs
which show that the representative of
this district has attracted the atten
tion of other newspapers besides
those in South Carolina:
"The customary Congressional
speech is read from a type-written
manuscript to empty benches or to
members engaged in the occupation
of writing letters or reading news
"McLaurin, of South Carolina, is
not of the "cut and dried" type; he
speaks offhand without even a note
and is very earnest in delivery, and
with the rare faculty of handling
figures so as to make them interest
ing. He can always command atten
tion. Last Thursday he gave the
old party hacks something not down
on the program, when he launched
out into an attack on Springer and
the formation of the banking and
currency committee. There was a1
ine vein of sarcastic humor woven
into his remarks. Thme reference to
"rude tramplers upon the grass in
lignities of the great American Con
7ress," and the sneering allusion to
sherman, Springer and Harter as the
yarents of "Cozeyism," was a well
nerited rebuke to the grasping self
shness of these men.

ommittees on certain lines.
"What is result? No step has been
taken to present a silver bill. Bland

coinage, weights and measures, and is
unable to get his bill out of the com
mittee. It was organized against
him. Springer, chairman of the B.
& C. committee, as McLaurin said,
"boldly, openly and impudently re
pudiated the platform of the party on
the currency question," and McLau
rin more than insinuates that he was
appointed to his present position to
"defeat" not to "redeem pledges,"
because it was known that he was a

The Case of the Famous Chicco.
Our readers will remember that last week
we mentioned the disposition made of the
case in Charleaton against that maccaroni
eater, the famous Mr. Chicco, who ran a
Market street blind tiger during the time
the dispensary law was in operation, and
to get a return of $50 from the county
treasurer made an affidavit that he had not
sold any liquor, etc. We clip from the
Charleston San a fnlier statement of the
"When the news had been receive~t that
the dispensary law bad been declared un
constitutional, a reporter was sent to inter
view the saloon keepers to get their opinion
as to what they thought 'about it. He went
into Vincent Chicco's establishment on
Market street, and in the course of an in
terview that took place Chicco declared to
to the reporter that he had been selling
liquor during the time that the dispensary
law was in operation. Chicco said this
much of his own volition.
"He made the statement voluntarily and
spoke in a boastful spirit. In order to be
sure of his words, the reporter said to him:
"'Do you mean to say that you were
selling liquor while the dispensary law was
' Yes, I was and I don't care if Gov.
Tillman or anyone else knows it.'
Chicco saw the reporter as he wrote his
declaration down and the latter took the
pains to read the words out to him not
once but twice for his approval.
No exception was taken to the publi:a
tion by Chieco nor was any dissent offered
to it. Last week, Gov. Tillman having
taken cognizance of the discrepancy be
tween this statement and the affidavit made
by Chicco in order to obtain a refund on
his license tax, directed County Treasurer
Walter to institute proceedings against
him. The county treasurer asked the ed
itor of the Sun for the name of the reporter
and whether he would make affidavit of
the facts in order to base a warrant for
He was told that the reporter would
testify to Chicco's words as substantially
stated in the Sun, but that he would not be
placed in* the position of prosecutor, as
while he could only tell the truth if called
on to testify, neither he or this newspaper
was called on to assume the office of prose
cutor. The treasurer then requested that
the reporter be asked to wait on him which
was done. Those are the "instructions"
which it has been insinuated the reporter
Monday afternoon Chicco in company
with Mr. A. L Brodie called at the report
er's residence. The reporter was not in,
but later in the evening he called at
Chicco's store on Market street to see what
was wanted. Chiceo and Mr. Brodie were
both present and what occurred there and
then may be told briefly.
The reporter was asked to see Mr. Le
gare. Chicco's lawyer, for the purpose, as.
he understood it, of changing the character
of his evidence. The reporter declined to
yield to this suggestion when Chieco be.
came angry and assaulted him. He struck
at the reporter (who is anything but Chic

latter managed to dodge the blows. There
were some Italians in the store at the time
