Tillman will beat Butler with about

The people should look about the
county for a competent man to fill
the office of County Supervisor. This
is a new office, to take the place of
the County Commissioners, and it
shoudubldied ~by aman of business

The first gun of the campaign
was fired last Monday at Rock Hill,
and from the tone of the press dis
patches we gather the following con
clusions: Governor Tillman carried
the day by an overwhelming majority
nothwithstanding the fact of several
hundred of Senator Butler's friends
from North Carolina were present
to play the booming act. James E.
Tindal made a telling speech. That
the Reform Movement is stronger
than ever. The meeting was good
natured and no attempt was made to
howl down the speakers. The cam
paign opened with good conduct, and
we hope it will continue as it began.
Hon. John Samuel Verner, ex
Comptroller General, and former law
partner of John C. Haskell, has an

comes out boldly and offers himself

The doors are open to converts, and

room on the front seats as those seats
are all occupied by those who were
present at the laying of the founda

fore, be content with the best seats
the Reformers can afford at present
for it will not do to give an untried

when work was needed. If there are
any more John Sam's now is the

The Democratic State Executive
Committee was in session in Colum
bia on the 7th inst. Senator Butler
was in the city at the time, and he
dil not make a request of that body
to place a separate box in the pri
mary for the people to vote for United
States Senator. Now after all the
arrangements have been made for the
campaign he wants the committee to
change things and give him a separ
ate box. When the Reformers asked
the Executive Committee to give
them a primary in 1890 the request
was refused until after the campaign
was well under way, then the Con
servatives seeing Tillman would de
feat them with their own plans want
ed to swap horses in the middle of
the stream. Senator Butler had a
fair opportunity to ask the Executive
Committee to place a separate box in
the primary, but he did not take ad
vantage of it, and now it is too late
'to alter the plan of campaign simply
to gratify the whim of an interested
candidate. Who ever is elected
United States Senator will virtually
be nominated by a primary as the
candidates for the Legislature will be
required to announce who they will
support for this position and the
voters will vote for them accordingly.
We publish in another column an
-editorial from the Piedmont Head
light which is a direct charge of the
basest kind of treachery against Con
gressman Shell. If what the Head
light says is true, then Shell ought to
be made to understand that his
)double dealing will not be tolerated.
If he wants to support Senator But
ler for re-election he has a right to do
so, but he has not a right to pretend
friendship and gratitude for the Re
form Movement, and secretly try to
assasinate the acknowledged leader
of the Movement. If Congressman
.Shell has recorded his treachery, the
record should be published whether
Shell denies it or not. We hope
there is- no truth in tbe
Headlight's charge against Shell, and
base that hope on the Headlight's
manner of fighting men it does not
agree with. Take Congressman Mc
Laurin, a triter and more loyal Re
former does not exist, and if he was
-disposed to support Butler he has the
Smanhood to come out and say so as
is evident from the manner he talked
out "in meetin" some time back, yet
the Headlight, in order to poison the
ziinds of the people against McLau
.rin, puts him in the same boat with
Shell, but is shrewd enough to avoid
anmaking a direct charge. If Congress
man McLaurin is not true to the
Reformers it should be shown, and
unless the Headlight shows up the
proof against McLaurin it will stand
-before the people as an unscrupulous
slanderer of those it cannot use. We
have faith in our Congressman, and
that faith came to us by his zealous
efforts to relieve the people; we care
not whether he is friendly with cer
tain men in Washington, all that we
want is faithful service. Shell may
have proven untrue, and may be act
ing the part of a dastardly scoundrel,
but that is no reason why the Head
light should associate McLaurin and
Bowden with him. If McLaurin and
Bowden are pretending to be with us
and are really working against us it
is the duty of every Reform paper to
run down the proof and expose it.
We believe we are as near McLaurin
as any one in the State, and we do
not betray confidence when we say
that before us lies a written declara
tion that McLaurin never expected to
support any one but Tillman for the
United States Senate, and that he
could not be induced to support But
ler. We assert most positively wvhen
the Headlight insinuates that Mc
Laurin is secretly supporting Butler
it insinuates that which is untrue,
and we believe it does so knowingly.
We do not reproduce the Head
light's article because bantered to do
so, but we publish it to show our
raders how our Congressman is be
ig hounded by an enemy who is
afraid that McLauin may aspire still
igher. The people of the 6th dis
tit like open fighting, and Mc
Laurin's enemies have an opportun
ity to defeat him, if they will openly,
show wherein McLaurin has been un
rue or is supporting Butler while
The Headlight Exposes Shell.
Col. John Gaston, of Aiken county,
District Alliance lecturer and a
gentleman who stands high in our
State, tells us that he was shown, a i
few days ago, by a prominent gentle
man of Greenville, (whose name we
can give if the statement is disputed,)
a letter writtea by Congressman G.
W. Shell. This letter was of a most
outrageous and traitorous character,
and substantiates every charge that
The Headlight has made against
Captain Shell and those who are his
political affiliators. In that letter
Shell goes on to say that General
Butler will shortly make a speech in
our Piedmont. section, and he wants
the gentleman to whom he writes to
work up as good an audience as pos
eible, and see that the people turn
out and give Butler a good and
attentive hearing. He then went on
to tell his friend that he wanted him
to be on hand and feel the sentiments
of the crowd. If they were for Butler,
to telegraph him at once at his ex
pense, the word, "Good," and he
(Shell) would understand it. But if,
on the other hand, Butler's speech did
not seem to have much impression,
and the farmers were against him, to
telegraph, "Crops are bad." In this
letter Shell went on to say that from
what he could gather Spartanburg
would go for Gary Evans for
Governor, in spite of all they could do,
and above all things Evans must be
beaten. Shell said that if Anderson,
Greenville and Spartanburg went for
Gary Evans it meant his (Evans)
nomination, and which would never
do. Shell had also sent this gentle
man a free pass to go to Washington.
The party to whom this letter was
addressed says he went to Washing
ton on business and saw.Shell, when
an earnest effort was made to get
him to pledge his influence to Butler,
but he refused td commit himself.
He replied to Shell's letter, stating
that he was a Reformer, and did not
propose to sell out his principles;
that he was a Tillman supporter, and
againsL Butler; and further consider
ed G. W. Shell a scoundrel and a
traitor to attempt to injure a move
ment to which he professed to be
Now, does not this letter clinch
every charge that we made against
Shell. McLaurin, Bowden & Co., and
don't it also show why Shell and
McLaurin refused to commit them
selves for Tillman when they came
Spartanburg? and furthermore does
it not throw a great flood of light
upon that Sunday caucus, the door of
which was guarded by a negro? Will
our intelligent Reformers be deceived
by Shell and his crowd any longer?
This letter is in existence, and if
Shell denies the fact, we are ready to
give the name of the gentleman to
whom it was written. But Shell will
not deny it, and he cannot and dare
not deny it.
This letter exposes one of the most
infamous plots ever organized in our
State to defeat Gov. Tillman, while
professing to be his friend. It com
pletely unmasks 0. W. Shell, and he
can no longer remain under the
cloak of Reform. It shows up his
evasiveness when asked to commit
himself for Tillman upon the stump,
and that he was simply playing our
farmers for a set of fools. and what
do our reformers think of the other
men who werein that Sunday caucus?
Don't you see that they must have
known what Shell was working for?
And dont you now see the importance
of keeping that door locked and
guarded while plotting' against the
people and Tillman.
And Shell says that Gary Evans
must be beaten at all hazards. Well,
the question is, will our reformers
permit Shell to dictate candidates for
them, after this conclusive proof of
his treachery and deceit? We say,
No ! And now that we have exposed
this damnable conspiracy, we want to
see if those so-called 'Reform news
papers in McLaurin's district will
have the manbood and the patriotism
to expose and denounce the infamy?
or do they servilely belong to J. L.
McLaurin that they must condone
the blackest treachery in order to
bolster him up? As these papers
know, Shell and McLaurin are work
ing together in Washington city, and
what applies to one applies to the
other. But we believe that the tried
and true Reformers of our Pee Dee
section will refuse longer to be lead
and controlled by a man so steeped
in deceit and treachery, and that
they will repudiate McLaurin, and
send to Congress a :nan on whom
they can rely, and not be found pro
fessing the Reform principles at home
and while in Washington consorting.
and working with such a black
hearted traitor and conspirator as
G. W. Shell.
We dare Congressman Shell to de
ny writing the letter to which we re
fer. He is down in black and white
as plotting to encompass the defeat
of Tillman for the U. S. Senate, but
with the low cunning that has ever
characterized the man, he is afraid to
have a direct answer to his questions
even flashed over the wires, but uses
an evasion and a fraud. So far as
Wash. Shell is concerned, if he even
again comes before his deceived and
betrayed constituents asking their
support, he will certainly find that
"Crops are bad," and it impresses us
that "Curly-Haired Johnnie" is pretty
badly in the grass himself, if we are
not deceived as to the loyalty of the
voters of his district.
G. W. Shell do you deny writing
that letter? You can't answer this
direct charge with silence.-Pied

The Columbia State was disposed to chide
he Herald with undue haste in dropping I
;enator Butler when his policy began to
levelop. Afterwards, if we are not mis.
aken, the State was convinced that the t
ferald was right. When President Cleve
and began to show that the policy of the
astern bankers was his policy, when he f
ised extraordinary efforts to have the Sher- e
nan law unconditionally repealed, being I

The following, which appeared in Boston
aily papers of April 10th, was sent in
April to every member of congress, and is I
now sent to the editors of about ten thous

who receive "Our Dumb Animals" each
ro the members of the Honorable Senate
and House of Represeutatives of the
United States of America:
I have read with interest in our daily I
papers of the progress of this army and of g
the various bodies of men who propose to
join it, either at or before its arrival at
Washington, also the opinions of General
cCooc of our United States army, and
various others upon the subject.
This army may not reach Washington
with a sufficient force to endanger congress
or the United States treasury, and these
opinions of General McCook and others
may be wrong. But there is no doubt that 1
there is in this country at the present time
a very large number of laboring men, will
ing to work, who cannot find employment,
and another class whio are anxious to stir1
up these men to anarchy and the destruct
ion of property and life.
On the other hand there can be no ques
tion that half a million of laboring men
could be usefully employed to-day by .our
National and State governmrents on i u'>lic
improvements of great. va'ue.
100,000 men could be put at work on a)
ship canal fronm the Mississippi river to
Chicago-another 100,000 on a ship canal
from Laike Michigan, opposite Chicago, to
Detroit-another 100,000 on enlarging the]
Erie to a ship canal frorn Buffalo to Albany, 1
(possibly by the use of electricity, or other
wise, these canals might be kept open a
large part of the winter)-another 100,000
on a ship canal across upper Florida from
the Gulf of Mexico to the St. John's river
another large force in strengthening the
levees of the lowerllMississippi and other
Southern rivers-another in draining and
irrigatE.g vast tracts of waste lands, and so
preparing them for settlement-another in
constructing fortifizations and breakwaters 1
for the protection of our harbors-another
in constructing and improving National
and State roads, and other in lighting the
Russian thisde, and in various ways too nu
merous to mention.
If I mistake not, a very considerable
body ofmen might be profitably employed
in Washington itself, securing better sew
erage, the filling of the Potomac fists,
building proper bridges across the river,
and killing out the causes of malaria.
Now, I am not a congressmen, never held
a political office in my life, and never want
to; but I have in common with others an
interest in the welfare of our country and
in promoting peace and good-will between
all classes of its citizens, and with that
view would inquire whether it is not eu
tirely witnin the power of congress to ani
thorize the immediate enlistment of one,
two, three or more hundred thousand men
as an "Industrial Corps'' of our regular
army, to be employed only in useful indus
tries, but to be subject to as strict military
disciple, court martial trials, etc , as the
reglar army;-this "'Industrial Corps" to
be placed under the control of offic,-rs desig
nated by congress or the President. 'The
enlistment to be for one, two or more years,
and the men put at work as soon as 'possi
ble in some of the ways above specified.
State governments may fol'ow the example
of the United States, and every unemployed
man in the country, willing to work, have
plenty to do.
1f the question be asked, "Can we afford
to give all th'ese unemployed men employ
ment?" I answer, "Uan .we afford not to?"
Suppose, if absolutely necessary, we post
pone for a year or two the building of any

value than to have a war, or have them

ler Boy's Suffering After
Hood's Cave Cood Health and
C. I. Hood & Co., Lowell. Mass.:
"Hood's Sarsaparilla has done so much for
ay boy that I wish to say a few words in praise
f this wonderful medicine. Clifford was very
I with diphtheria and it left him suffering with
right's disease. He was very weak, poor In
esh and could hardly walk. Malaria fever
on overtook him and together with trouble
Pith his liver,
He Was In Much Misery.
Lt last, almost discouraged. I decided to have
im try Hood's Sarsaparilla. He has taken
nly a few bottles, and yet it has done him more
:ood than all the previous medical treatment
nd medicines combined. He has regained
trength and flesh and looks quite healthy. It
ril always give us pleasure to tell others what
valuable medicine is Hood's Sarsaparilla?
