THE IANEIG TIMES3
LOUIS APPELT, Editor.
Wednesday, July 11, 1S94.
GANTT EASILY ANSWERED.
In last week's issue of the Pied
mont Headlight Editor Gantt belched
up a lot of his venom and fired it at
the Times. He not only misrepre
sented us in his several paragraphs
of his stuff, but he wilfully made a
charge against us that is not true.
The Manning Times is not controlled
by any man or set of men outside of
the editor, and it always tries to be
fair and just even to its opponents.
We are not disposed to abuse and
misrepresent our opponents in or
out of the Reform Movement, and
when we think a man has been wil
fully misrepresented and slandered
as John McLaurin has been by the
Headlight we endeavor to expose the
motive for the misrepresentation.
We will not sit idly by and see the
editor of the Headlight or anyone
else attempting to smash character
and confidence to gratify a petty
spleen and jealousy.
He calls the editor of the Times
"McLaurin's Cuckoo," but as Gantt
has been commissioned by one high
in authority as the greatest prevari
cator in the State, his calling us a
cuckoo will be taken to be meant
that the editor is not a cuckoo, and
fartherest from one, because a man
that "can out lie them all" would
hardly come within shooting distance
The Headlight has put some ques
tions to us and asks that we answer
its questions; it also asks . that we
publish the paragraph containing the
questions, which we will do to keep
it from whining out that we have not
treated it fairly. The paragraph al
luded to reads thus:
"We freely admit that Hon. J. E.
Tindal is an honest and nice gentle
man, but assert that he is not a suit
able candidate for our Reformers to
elect Governor, and for these reasons,
which we think will be satisfactory:
1st. He has given employment to
avowed Antis over true and loyal Re
formers. 2d. His head clerk is now
an outspoken Bntler man and was at
the Greenwood "black jack" meeting
hurrahing for Butler and Gordon,
after Gordon had denounced and in
sultelour Ref6rmers in his speech.
3d.-r. Tindal at first refused to
0submit his claims to our Reform
voters, but withdrew from the race be
cause the Antis were not given an
opportunity to came candidates for
the farmers. 4th. Every old ringrule
paper in the State is helping Tindal.
-Will the Manning Times please re
produce this paragraph and then pro
ceed to show why, under these ar
raignments, that J. E. Tindal is bet
ter fitted to represent our Reformers
than John Gary Evans, whom the
Antis hate worse than old satan?"
Here is our answer:
1. The employees in the Secretary
of State's office, appointed by Mr.
Tindal, are true Reformers, and it is
not true that Antis were appointed
over Reformers by Mr. TindaL. Col.
James Gibbes, agent for the State
Sinking Fund Commission, is an
Anti and has his desk in the Secre
tary of State's office, but he does not
hold his appointment from Mr. Tin
dal, but from the Sinking Fund Com
mission, which is composed of the
or, Comptroller General, At -
torney eral and others, and if weJ
are correctly i wmwed the position is'
one that needs an expeienc'ed man
who will take his chances for com
pensation out of commissions.
2d. Captain W. R. Brooks is the
head clerk in Mr. Tindal's office, and
'we know that he was very. active in
-organizing Reform clubs in Richland
county in former campaigns when it
meant social ostracism in Columbia,
but in spite of it and the insults and
sneers of his former friends he went
ahead pushing on the cause of Re
form, and his work received the high
est praise from the Columbia Register
whose editor at that time was T. L.
Gantt, now the editor of the Head
light. We do not doubt that Capt.
Brooks is supporting Senator Butler,
neither are we surprised when we re
member that blood is thicker than
water, and that Capt. Brooks is sup
prting his kinsman. He is giving
en. Butler his support openly, and
by doing so shows his manhood.
Were Mr. Tindal to dismiss Capt.
Brooks for being a supporter of Gen.
Butler, then we would be forced to
say that Mr. Tindal was not a broad
minded gentlemen, fit to enjoy the
-honor of holding high position from
the people of South Carolina. Were
he to dismiss Capt. Brooks or any
other clerk for supporting Gen. But
ler, or even Evans, Ellerbe or Pope
he would be converting a public
trust into a machine of political op
pression to further his individual
ends instead of the betterment of the
people that reposed this trust in
3d. Mr. Tindal never has refused
to submit his claims to our Reform
voters, nor did he withdraw from the
race because the Antis were not
given an opportunity to name candi
dates for the farmers, and no one
knows it better than the Headlight's
editor. Mr. Tindal never was a can
didate until after persistent urging
on the part of his friends in and out
of the county. It was Mr. Tindal's
desire to not enter the race, and so
wrote in a letter to Abbeville, but
when his constituents appealed to his
patriotism to come forward as the
best man to perpetuate the Reform
cause he consented, and we say right
here if Mr. Tindal is not the choice
of a majority of the Reformers he
does not expect the nomination from
any other source.
4th. If the old ring rule papers in
theiState are trying to help Tindal
we can assure the pessimistic Gantt
that it is entirely gratuitous. If Mr.
Tindal had been allowed to gratify
his own wishes he to-day would not
be going over the State making
sphes as a candidate for we know
how anxious he was to come home to
give his private interests a much
needed attention. Now why ought
Tindal be better fitted to fill thei
dfice of Governor than John Gary
,vans? He ought to be on account
if his unquestioned ability. His
,ears of experience obtained by:
ravel and education. His past ef- ,e
orts in the work of Reform. His the
rears of hard labor at a rsonal sae- cal
ifice for the agricult u its of the wa,
ountry. His special fitness for re- ha<
itoring peace and harmony among jin
;he people, and because the labor wh
and money interests have full confi
lence in him. co1
Senator Evans is a good, true Re- sor
.ormer, and one that has been an tio:
ble exponent of Reform measures. ve
rhe records are sparkling all over I
ike brilliant gems with his achieve- ott
nents, but he is young and can afford hai
o wait. Ut

GANTT AGAIN ANSWERED. an
"Here is your proof that John L. sc
9fcLaurin is an enemy to Gov. Till- cl
nan at heart, and now we want to thi
see if the editor of the Manning in
rimes has gumption and independ
mce enough to digest the evidence: tin
L. McLaurin refused to answer upon an
he stand at Spartanburg the direct wa
iuestion of whether he was for Butler .
>r for Tillman for the U. S. Senate. Tb
1. While in Washington he runs to- nu
,ether with G. W. Shell, and they are un
:olitical bed-fellows; and Shell wrote
i letter to Greenville in the interest ole
f Butler, while his postmaster in
hat city has flopped over to Butler. ap
3. McLaurin wrote one of the dirt- 80
est attacks upon Tillman and the ac
Reform Movement ever published,
mnd which was designed tc injure the wi
3overnor. 4. The man McLaurin tri
ippointed postmaster at Darlington g
mnd who remained with him in the
Washington for about a year, has ed
iow taken the road in the interest of an
Butler. There are no "insinuations" k
n these assertions, are they?" ri
1st. McLaurin, we are proud to stc
say, had the manhood- to refuse to fo
gratify one who he had denounced as i
I "political hell hound that could be tax
bought like a piece of dog meat on fo<
he market." His constituents know wa
-xactly where he stands in the con- '
iest between Tillman and Butler, and so,
hey are satisfied. in
2d. McLaurin is a gentleman and sa,
reats Capt. Shell as one. He was be
aot sent to Washington to refuse to pe
be social with men that happen to ar<
aot like the Headlight's patron saint en
enator Irby. He was sent there
2owever to work for his people and th4
ie is doing it. It matters not what in
shell did, McLaurin is not his spon- an
or and has no control over his ac- u
3d. We deny the assertion that
EcLaurin ever wrote an attack on
l'ilman and the Reform Movement.
Ee did write a letter in -which be
;aid to the people to send Tillman on
o the Senate where his destructive ye
genius will find a plenty to keep it us
employed. McLaurin's enemies CS
ned to make the public believe this fo
:o be an attack and laid great stress m
>n illman's genius being called de- a
structive, but when Tilman gets to n
the Senate they will change their to
tunes and the last one will be prais- hc
ing Tillman for bringing that de- r~
atructive genius into play and there- W
by destroy the evils now existing. w
4th. Waddill is the man McLaurin b
had aippointed postmaster for Dar-tl
lington, but he failed to secure hisF
commission. This left Waddill in bi
the cold and McLaurin could do no
more for him. The result was that "'
Waddill, unable to secure more fa- P~
vors, turned his back on McLaurin tL
and is now one of his bitterest ene
mies. Waddill is working in Butler's ai
interest and at the same time he h4 5
bentrying to work u opo h0
McLaurin. T re 4ctswi th h
nothin~oii lature of an insinua-w
If exposing the hypocrital preten-N
tions of a cer tain set of political' pie
hunters is an attack on the Reform
Movement then McLaurin is certainlyW
guilty of the charge. He did eay
that he was opposed to men asking
for the votes of the people with noth- t
ing more to recommend them than
their ability to imitate Ben Tillman. s
From a variety of unforeseen cir- b
cumstances the Antis are finding they ei
are not so indifferent to the Sena
torial race as they thought they were.
They tried to make us believe they
had but little preference as between
Tillman and Butler; but the plot
thickens as the rocks fly. A few days fc
from now mud and torches and ban
ners and paid howlers and hotel fc
speeches and abominations in gen
eral will be revived in regulation fC

is "Butler or Bu4"-a bust disastrous, d

An Autograph Fiend.
One day when Mr. Phelps was min- w
iter to the court of St. James a gen
leman from Omaha called upon him
rith the modest request that he
rould assist him in obtaining anum
er of autographs of eminent Eng
shmen. The visitor was indeed y
ot scrupulous to emelude eminent 0'

uld obtain for him a few friendly a
nes from the queen they should ,
ave an honored place in his town
all, on whose behalf he had under- q
Iken the commission.
Mr. Phelps was struck with the r1
uiet pertinacity of the man and

HOW HE WROTE SPARTACUS.
Kenogg Tells How the Famota Speech
Talking with a correspondent of

"It was while I was at Andover,"
id he, smiling as the remembrance
the event came back to him.
N'e were required to prepare
eeches for our rhetorical exercises,
d after each man had spoken he
as subject to criticism by his fel

ways so complimentary as they
are pointed. Then the professor
uld follow with serious criticism,
Ld he always found faults that uieed
"So these speeches came to be
ked upon with dread, and at last I
ade up my mind that I'd try to get
mething so different from anything
D had had and so interesting that
would hold their attention too
sely for them to think about
>ints on which to criticise me, and
I would get off free.
"Well, I wrote 'Spartacus.' When
began, it worked just as I had ex

Two Colors of Tobacco Smnke.
Smoke consists of minute particles
of solid or liquid matter suspended
in the air, and its color depends part
ly upon the chemical constitution of
such particles, but also largely upon
their size. Exact experiment has
shown that, as the size of minute
partieles suspended in air is gradual
ly increased, they give rise to colors
varying from sky blue down through
the whole range of the spectral scale.
This is the cause of sunset and sun
rise colors in the sky. Its effects can
also be traced in the casb of the two
kinds of tobacco smoke, modified by
the murky tints of the carbonaceous
products. The smoke given off from
the heated surface of the burning to
bacco in the bowl of the pipe consists
of matter all of which has been
highly heated and very fully oxidized
and decomposed. It consists mainly of
exceedingly small, solid particles, ex
hibiting by virtue of their smallness
a bluish color. On the other hand,
that smoke which has been drawn
through the tabacco into the mouth of
the smoker carries with it a relatively
large quantity of water and hydro
carbon, which are condensed upon
the solid particles above mentioned.
The relatively large size of such par
ticles explains the well known gray
ish color of the smoke which issues
from the mouth of the smoker.-Tit
A Strong Lassle.
"When-you talk about strong men,
I can tell you a story," said a local
truckman today. "It was before I
was in the jobbing business that
there lived in Lewiston a woman who
could beat all the strong men from
Samson to Cyr.
"She was in the old grodery store
on the corner one day when the pro
prietor pointed to a couple of flour
barrels, saying, 'Mary, if you'll carry
them home I'll give them to you.'
Sanborn, who was a truckman 30
years and who sold out to James Cole,
was there and offered to bet that she
couldn't carry one.
"'Put them on the counter,' she
said, 'and I'll take them both.'
"Four men lifted the barrels up
and she went up to them full of con
fidence, and resting the bottom of
one on her right hip, circled the bar
rel with one of her long arms and
then swung around so as to graspthe
other in the same way, and as I live
she carried them out and along the
street to a place 300 yards down the
road,'where one of them fell and up
set her balance. You see, she rested
them on her hips and didn't try to
lift them by her back. The grocer
gave her the flour."-Lewiston Jour
A Lesson In Grammar.
Fun frequently comes out of the
public schools, despite their functions
as solid, solemn educators. But this
smiles where there are bright faces
and youth and health. Not long ago
a teacher in this city was drilling her
pupils in the application of certain
words in relation to other words.
She had the youngsters much inter
ested in building sentences around a
given expression. One of the words
presented was "use." Several chil
dren had made a sentence containing
the word, when the teacher called
upon a particularly bright young ras
cal to make a response. The youth
didnot like another member of the
class, and it suddenly dawned upon
his young brain that it would be a
good idea to apply his sentence ac
cordingly. He faced his disliked
companion, and pointing his finger
at him scornfully said:
"You's is no good."
Of course the teacherlaughed. The
other children laughed, and the boy
laughed, too, but it took two days for
him to learn that the slang contrac
tion, "you's," was not the word de
sired.-St. Louis Republic.
Some German Houses.
It is a hint that comes from a
woman recently returned from a
considerable residence in one of the
German art cities that the closest in
quiries should be made before takig
lodgings or apartments into the
cleanliness of the beds and furnish
"In some of the most attractive ap
pearing and apparently faultless
places," she says, "we have been
fairly driven out after a short stay,
forfeiting the rent rather than un
dertake to accept the conditions. At
last we put the question bluntly
every time, expressly stating that if
on trial the apartment was found to
be infested we should claim the
right to move at once."
This traveler's experience may
have been exceptional. It is at least
actual, and as such perhaps is a note
of warning.-New York Times.

Vegetarianism is often called a
fad, but it is a healthy and innocent
one and the natural reaction against
the present state of things. It im
parts lightness and elasticity to the
body, brightness and clearness to
the mind. The vegetarians I know
are all unusually strong, active and
young looking people for their age.

DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED
by local applications as they cannot reach the
diseased portion of the, ear. There is only one
way to cure deafness, and that is by consti
tutional remedies. Deafness is caused by
an inflamed condition of the mucous lining
of the Eustachian tube. When this tube is
inflamed you have a rumbling sound or im
perfect hearing, and when it is entirely
closed, Deafness is the resilt, and unless
the inflammation can be taken ont and this
tube restored to its normal condition, hear
ing will be destroyed forever;nine cases out
of ten are caused by catarrb, which is nothing
but an inflamed condition of the mucous
We will give One Hundred Dollars for any
case of Deafness (caused by Catarrh) that
cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure.
