We noticed a card in the Register
igned "A Reformer," and dated
Bonneau's, S. C., which says that
enator Butler will be asked to ex
lain his connectlon with the acad
imy of music swindle, and the ques
ion must be answered at Barnwell.
enator Butler is a candidate for re
lection to the United States Senate,
md Governor Tillman is also
acandidate. Either of these
hese candidates should make them
elves perfectly clear on all the issues
mefore t'he people, and the people
ave a right to question them, but
ye do not think it right nor is it de
ent in a candidate being harrassed
ith all sorts of irrelevant questions.
A.s far as the academy of music mat.
er is concerned those who bought
ickets did so knowing they were in
resting in lottery, and they took their
~hances. If they drew blanks it was
heir bad luck, but that has nothing
o do with this campaign. Senator
Sutler has been endorsed time and

how that Clarendon is jealous of her

Senator Butler has issued a circu
lar letter to the various county chair
men throughout the State, in which
he makes the request that his friends
be given representation on the boards
of managers in the coming primary.
The request is a modest one and we
see no objection to it, as we know
that the Senator will get every vote
cast for him whether any of the man
agers are in sympathy with him or
not. As far as Clarendon is concern
ed we doubt if the Senator has enough
supporters to fill the places at the
various polling presincts, because we
are almost sure he will get no sup
port from the Reformers and we
doubt exceedingly if the Conserva
tives will bother to go out to the
primary unless there is a greater in
ducement offered them than to vote
for the re-election of Senator Butler.

Dr. Sampson Pope wants the Re
form executive committee to be called
together to rescind their action in
reference to holding a primary in the
Reform clubs for the purpose of thin
ing out our candidates to a stand.
The Reform executive committee is
made up of one member from each
county in the State, who was elected
by a convention fresh from the peo
ple for the purpose of devising a plan
by which the Reform faction could be
kept from going into the general pri
mary with candidates possibly from
every county in the State. At the
conference the bituation was dis
cussed freely, without the slightest
regard for the interests of any partic
ular candidates, and that body came
to the unanimous conclusion to ask
the Reform clubs ta meet and elect
delegates to a county convention, at
the same time to instruct those dele
gates as to the clubs choice for Gov
ernor. The time to object it strikes
us has passed, for the reason the cam
paign is on and the people have an
opportunity of seeing the candidates,
so that they can go to their respective
clubs and votes for the candidate of
their choice. To call the Reform ex
ecutive committee to Columbia again

into the hands of the Reform conven
tion when it assembles, he is not
compelled to, and he can continue
his fight right on in the general pri
mary. Just so, with the others; but
those that do submit their claims to
the convention will be honor bound
by the result. All the candidates
now before the people are good and
tried men, and it matters not which
of them is selected, the Reform Move
ment will not suffer. So don't kick
wun the announcement that he will
be a candidate for that office because
he has been solicited by both factions.
The military of South Carolina would
have in Captain Brailsford not only a
gentleman well qualified for the posi
tion, but one that has always been a
Reformer. He was in the March
Convention of 1890 which suggested
Tillman for Governor. He was
among the number that voted for
the suggestion. Captain Brailsford
has always taken an active interest in
military affairs, and were he made
chief of that department the military
force of the State would be put in
Gen. Richbourg is a good man, a
soldier and a gentleman. In the
Darlington matter his soldierly qual
ities were exhibited. He laid aside
his political feelings when his Com
mander-in-Chief called for his ser
vices and buckling on his sword re
ported for duty. He performed his
duty as became a soldier, and the
people of the State will be grateful
to him. He now comes out for a po
litical office appealing to no special
faction. In this he takes a dignified
stand, and we know that a great
many feel that Gen. Richbourg should
receive recognition for his manly
stand when trouble arose, yet it is
known that J. G. Watts, who is also a
candidate, did his duty as fully, and
Captain Brailsford, as soon as he re
ceived orders, went to work and in a
short time was ready to obey the
commands of the Governor. He,
with his command, remained under
arms for days and until they were
dismissed by tbe Chief Executive.
Brailsford and Watts are both trueRe
formers, while Gen. Richbourg is not.
He is not only an opponent of the
Reform Movement, but in 1890 he
joined in with the Haskell Movement
to split the white vote of the State.
His name appeared upon that Inde
pendent ticket as a candidate for the
office he now seeks.

THE GREENVILLE NEWS,
Strong Anti Paper, Humorously Gives
Its Observations of the Campaign
Xeeting at Yorkville.
Whoever is managing Senator
3utler's campaign made an awful
)reak at the beginning with that free
>ass crowd at Rock Hill. The
ictitious show of strength deceived
iobody. From all accounts, as
lovernor Tillman said, the contract
whoopers failed to whoop according
;o contract. Not a particle of good
was done. They tell in Yorkville that
iome of the excursionists who under
tood that their hotel bills were to be
)aid were much angerediy the scanty
.ations provided and went home
rowing vengeance and votes against
he senator. He should do as did
rurner, third base of the Greenville
ball team,who is reported to have
lain his hodoo by burying nine hairs
rom a dead woman's head, two leg
bones of a black cat, a strip of bacon
skin, some grave yard earth and three
drops of chicken blood behind the
irst bag in the dark of the moon.
Since then he has played errorless
games, won applause of the grand
stand and made several base hits.
The senator is obviously afflicted
with a hoodoo and it has started him
out with a club over his head which
Tilman is smart eaough to use. The
above recipe is not guaranteed to be
exactly correct, but it is tendered
free of charge and may work. We
have paid our money to see a fight
and we don't want to behold any solo
political pugilism. Unless there is
some kind of change and some
thing done to work off the effects of
the break men will be afraid to cheer
for Butler at any future meeting lest
they be suspected of being part ol
the "Coxey army" which invaded
The scheme made the senator's
friends sick and his foes mad and
probably explains much of the tem
per and enthusiasm manifested by
the governor's fr-ends at Yorkville.
We are becoming more and more
inclined to bestow our fatal affections
and embraces upon the senator be

The Dr. and the News have tender e
spots for each other: Each of us re
gards the other as honest, but about t

each of us objects to the other chiefly c
on the score of the bad political com- E
pany he keeps; both of us are lan- E
guishing outside the breastworks and (
neither of us cares a continental red t
cent. On that basis we are entirely I
and sweetly harmonious.
Men are big and little by compari- t
son. Here is our Senator Harrison,
who, by the way, prudently covers
his line of retreat and provides a soft
place to drop in by holding on to his I
seat in the senate while advancing on
the secretary of state's office. He is
the "bull of the woods," as they s-ty
up in the mountains, in county cam
Daigns; but when he strikes a State
canvassing party he sings small by I
force of circumstances and holds
much the same position as the candi
date for coroner who, when all the
speaking is over, stands bashfully up
stammers the announcement of his
name and the office he asks at the
backs of his retiiing fellow citizens.
And out in the crowd people ask, I
"Who is that fellow ?" "Whar's he
from ?" and "What is he trying to
It is a beautiful refawm theory that
all candidates for State office must
canvass the State. But as a matter
of cold fact, by the time the candi
dates for senator have talked an hour
apiece the candidates for governor
half an hour apiece and the candi
dates for congress twenty minutes 1
apiece, the constituency has been on
its feet nearly five hours and is not
in humor to listen to anybody else.
Consequently the minor candidates
can only allow themselves to be
looked at and most of them had bet
ter stay at home than do that.
Except Dr. Timmerman, who wants
to be lieutenant governor. The un
happy truth is the doctor is homely.
He has on him a nose which looks as
if it was made for a club of four or
five and all sent to his address by
mistake, and his general appearence
is grotesque, although he is a good,
solid citizen with unfailing good
humor and fidelity. The mass meet
ing crowd is not remarkable for po
liteness, anyhow and when the doctor
suddenly presented himself before
the populace. at York there was a roar
of laughter. Nothing quite like him
had ever appeared there before. He
appreciated the situation and joined
in the merriment his physiognomy
caused so heartily that it was some
timebefore he could talk at all. Then he
announced that he was running on
his face and shape and candidates,
voters and all joined in erjoyment of
the fun, so that the candidate for
lieutenant governor scored quite a hit.
There used to be a man in Virginia
who said he preferred the distinction
ugliness to the obscurity of medioc
and the book of revelations to be
opened. Along about that time tjie
Greenville News will probably be
represented in the procession.
It is a mighty comfortable thing to
have no friends and to be entirely in
different regarding results. Then
you cannot be angered or grievcd, no
matter what happens. To us people
sitting on the fence all this campaign
is a big, free circus. It is our part
to see and enjoy the fun of it, and
whatever there may be of the dra
matic in it.
They suffer much who dread or yearn,
Who anguish know, or ecstacy;

The Public Printing.
There has been a sinister effort on
the part of the Anti-Reform press to
create the impression on the public
that there was a bonanza to the pub
lic printer in the printing of the re
port of Commissioner Breazeale in
the reports and resolutions. The
real facts are that the printer had no
option but to print this report of Mr.
Breazeale in the reports and resolu
tions and the Comptroller General
had no choice but to issue his war
rant in accord with the terms of the
contract to the public printer for the
The effort of the opposition press
was to make it appear that the tax
payers were required in this matter
to contribute cleverly to the support
of the Register, whose proprietor
happens to be the public printer of
In 1881-82 the laws of the State
were codified and the public printing
for that year amounted to $40,800, and
again in 1898 the same work had to be
done, and so far the public prioting
amounts to $24.824.05, a difference
of $17,975.97 in favor of 1895 in the
printing. There is yet some of the
code printing not complete arnd will
reduce these figures some.
The session of the legislature for
1881-82 cost $85,494.50 and that for
1893 $57,681.68, a difference of $27,
812.82 in favor of 1893. Here is a
difference of $43,851.79 in the cost of
the code of 1881-82 and 1893 in
favor of the method adopted by the
legislature of 1893, who evidently
were trying to save the people money.
Now as to the reasons which actu
ated the general assembly of South.
Carolina, the public printer nor the ,
Comptroller General can have any
thing to do but to comply with the a
mandates of this body. This we be- t
eve they have done, and in so doing,
ave best conserved the public inter
st of South Carolina.
This is now clearly exemplified by
be fait that the government of the
be United States holds something
ver $100,000 of the bonds of the
tate and it appears that the United
tates owes tLe citizens of South
arolina $550,000 for services, ma
Irial, etc., during the wars of 1776
812, and may be that with Mexico.
A representative of South Carolina
ivestigated this matter and r.ports
Le facts, etc., which possibly can
ever be found, because not printed
2 reports and resolutions.
If the report of Mr. Black had been
rinted in the reports and resolutions
ncl thus preserved in pernianent
)rm, doubtless much irouble, time
nd labor would have been saved
ome one, and possibly saved the cit
ens of the State $550,000, which ap
ears to be due by the United States.
'he report of Mr. Black to the gen
ral assembly of South Carolina giv
og the names and amounts may be
