LOUIS APPELT, Editor.
Wednesday, Autiist 8, 1894.
Hartwell M. Ayer retires from the
e4itorial management of the Flor
ence Times, and is succeeded by
John P. Coffin.
Kate Field, a brilliant journalist,
says her idea of hell, "is the present
condition of the country," and that
idea has been obtained without at
tending the Charleston campaign
P. G. Bowman, formerly of Sumter
isreported to be a candidate for the
U. S. Senate from Alabama on the
Populist platform. He is a candidate
for prison honors, too, if the published
report of his killing a man in Bir
mingham is true.
Ex-Sheriff Holley, of Aiken, has
been appointed chief constable of the
State. Mr. Holley has the reputa
tion of being a man that will carry
out his orders to the letter, and he
will not use any harsh means unless
it becomes absolutely necessary.
Two years ago to be a Reformer
was a disgrace in the estimation of
some people, but now it has become
fashionable, and we hear some of the
hottest Antis now proclaiming them
selves Reformers. The man who
says he is a Reformer but is against
Tillman is not the kind of a Reform
er the people are looking for. Till
man is the acknowledged leader of
the Reform movement, both at home
and abroad, and to be against him is
to be against the Reform niovement.
The dispensary law is being rap
aly pushed to a final hearing. The
Osta court will soon have an oppor
tur.ity of testing it, and so will the
TTnited States Supreme Court.
Should the act be declared constitu
tional by the United States Supreme
Court a large majority of the States
will have a similar law before twelve
months. Some who were bitter i
their opposition to the law are no%
wanting it enforced and openly say
the penalties attached for viehttinb6
the law should be heavime
Wit .'afemarkable promptness cer
rntowns had dispensers arrested
for violating the town ordinances
which prohibits the sale of liquoi
within their borders, but the strangE
part-of the business is, they not only
have not arrested a bar-keeper for
keqping an open- barroom, but they
allow the bars to continue right on.
It is wrong for dispensaries to seJ
~liquor in those towns because it ef
fects the sales of the barrooms whose
proprietors very often have quite i
pull in municipal polities.
-Keep your eye on the candidates
who are unwilling to let the peopk
*know where they stand on any par.
tieular issue. The candidate that re
Ifuses to pledge himself to carry oul
the wishes of the people does not
propose to represent the people. He
simply wants to represent himselU
-and possibly a few personal friends.
-The masses are not looking for those
kind of representatives, and they
..should be careful not to let such slip
in. A man may like a candidate ev
er so much personally, but he cannot
' vote for him if opposed to his prii
*pies. The question is not one of per.
sonal popularity. It is who will rep
resent the wishes of the people and
faithfully carry out those wishes.
~When you hear a candidate talking
about not allowing himself shackled
with pledges, put him down as being
against what you want.
Last Wednesday's daily newspa
pers report a lively incident that oc
curred between Governor Tillmnan
and Senator Butler on the train be
tween Union and Spartanburg. For
tunately there was nothing more se
rious than a sharp passage of words.
No one doubts the courage of either
Butler or Tillman, but we do not see
what they can gain by involving
themselves in a personal altercation.
We hope both will conduct them
selves so during the balance of the
campaign that no more reports such
as came from them last week will be
heard. The supporters of Governor
Tillmnan bear no ill will towards Sen
ator Butler, and we believe we truly
voice the feeling of every Reformer
in the county when we say they have
a high regard for him and his past
services to the country. At the same
time they feel that Governor Tillman
is the leader of -the Farmers' Move
ment, and that his past services merit
the honorable promotion he now
seeks. Let us all enjoy the freedom
of casting our ballots for the man of
our choice without impugning each
other's motives. The Conservatives
are making a shrewd effort to recap
tre what they lost in the revolution
of 1890, and all that the Reformers
have to do is to keep up their organ
izations and success is assured. All
this stuff about Tillman being op
posed to the Alliance demands is the
silliest twaddle and it only comes
from those seeking to break the con
fidence of the people in him. Both
Butler and Tillman favor most of the
Alliance demands, and that which
they do not favor they have the man
hood to say so. Other men with the
office of United States Senator at
stake might for the sake of catching
votes say they support this and
that when in reality they are
simply deceiving the people in
order to get their votes. Gov
crnor Tillman has always opposed
the sub-treasury scheme on the
ground that it is impracticable. The
Alliance itself is not wedded to the
scheme, but the Gov'ernor is a mnem
ber of the Alliance, and although he
disapproves of the sub-treasury he
will submit to the will of the majori
ty. This we are satisfied of from a
speech he made two years ago in the
Alliance caucus in Columbia. There
he told the brethren that he would
give them his views, and if they
would not go. with him, he would as
a- Allmancman go with them.
The State Press Association will
meet at Pawley's Island on the 16th
inst. This will be a great time for
the pencil drivers.
The Chesterfield county conven
tion endorsed James E. Tindal for
Governor. Chesterfield appreciates
a Reformer and statesman.
The Conservatives are again Dib
ble-ing with figures. They claim the
earth and all its contents. In giving
out the list of counties they expect to
carry they even put Clarendon as
safe for their side. What a joke?
All this talk about a third man for
the U, S. Senate is twaddle. The fight
is between Gov. Tillman and Senator
Butler and one or the other should
and will be selected for the place.
They both went before the people in
accordance with the rules of the Dem
ocratic party and both are making a
hard fight for the prize. The one that
has the longest pole will "trash de
In a case before Judge Watts re
cently, he held, "If you hold a chattel
mortgage and do not take possession
of the property when your deed is
due. you forfeit your claim to the
property. If you accept a partial
payment on such a mortgage you for
feit your lien." This decision is
based upon a similar decision made by
the State Supreme Court some time
last year. We regard this ruling of
the court as specially important to
both merchant and farmer and both
should understand the law affecting
chattel mortgages and liens, and then
trouble and unneccessary expense will
be saved to all parties.
Every Reformer should be up and
doing for the reason that the opposi
tion aregoing to make a desperate ef
fort to get into control. All of their
talk about being indifferent is the veri
est bosh. A few days more will reveal
the true inwardness of the "possum
tactics" of the Conservatives. All
kinds of schemes will be put into op
eration all over. the State to hood
wink the Reformers, and now is the
time for each Reform club in the
county to look after its interests.
They should have meetings for the
purpose of showing up the game of
the opposition. They should also
appoint committees to look after the
registration of members and whenever
they find out any of their,.embers
have been af on a Conservative
club o that member and see if
c enrollment was done with his
consent. The Conservatives about
Manning are boasting of the number
of Tillmanites they are enrolling, but
in the case of some they claim to
have enrolled, the parties have given
instructions to keel) their names on
the Reform club where they will cast
their vote in the primary.
The Reformers of Clarendon in one
of the largest conventions ever held
in the county, unanimously adopted
resolutions requesting Hon. James E.
Tindal to become a candidate for gov
ernor, and this after Mr. Tindal had
expressed a wish to retire to prilvate
life to look after his private interests,
which were being neglected on ac
count of public duties. -Mr. Tindal
feeling that his people had a right to
command his services, consented to
make the race and has ever since
been actively and aggressively en
gaged in carrying out the wishes of
his constituents. He has not de
scended to the methods of the ward
politician nor has he befuddled the
minds of the people by the discussion
of personal or irrelevant matter. He
has been outspoken in his views on
all matters affecting the welfare of the
Reform movement, and in every in
stance when in his judgement the
Reformers were leaving their moor
ings, he warned them of the danger.
Mr. Tindal has won the respect of
the entire State by the manner of
conducting his canvass, and his
speeches all the way through were the
utterances of a statesman whose mis
sion was to better the condition of
the masses. We know that it is al
most impossible for a public man to
please everybody, but we sincerely
hope that the Reformers of Clarendon
will in this instance be unanimous in
asting their votes for James E. Tin
dal for governor.
It really looks like the State Alli
ance acted hastily in expelling T. L.
Gantt, if what Gantt says is true.
He says that he had never received
any summons to appear before the
State Allian'ee to make good his
charges; that he was tried and con
victed in his absence by a jury com
posed of men who he brought
charges against. We know nothing
of the merits or demerits of the ease,
but the Spartanburg Alliance shows
very plainly its disapproval of the
treatment of Gantt by refusing to
recognize the action of the State Al
liance, as will be seen by the follow
Resolutions of Encampment Alliance No.
45, of Spartanburg, S. C.:
Whereas, the rumor having reached our
ears that the late State Alliance has, on the
recommendation of the judiciary committee.
expelled Brother Gantt from the Order, and
believing that said body acted unjustly in
that our brother was not given notice of
trial; and whereas, we believe it exceeded
its jurisdiction anid that its action cannot
be sustained by the constitution of our Or
der, in that Brother Gantt has al
ways in his editorial utterances sus
tained all the demands of the Al
liance, bioth State and national, and
has never in our knowledge expressed him
sel as opposing any of the principles or
demands of the platform of our Order, an 1
that there is indicated, in the criticisms as
uttered by many of our Alliance b'rethren
in our connty and voiced by Urother Gantt
in his paper at their instance, only tihe wel
fare and success of our organization; and
whereas we feel that we want to see each o
our brothers receive just and fair tret-mnt
on all occasions and espe~cially at the hands~m
of brethren, and believing the present in-I
stance not wholly free from Liarm, N,
therefore, be it resolved:
1. That if the report lie true that ha s
reached us tLat Brother G.antt has beenex
pelled from the brotherhood, that we differ
very much with the Alliance and consider
Brother G.antt in good standing until he be
regularly tried and found guilty of~ sonie
charge, and we believe him to be as sincere
in his allegiance to the Alliance as any
member of that body.
2. 'lhat we shall continue to recognize
Brother Gantt as a regular member of our
Sub-Alliance until he is proven unworthy
of recognition by us as an Allianceman. t
J. That these ~resolutions be published in~
the Piedmont Headlight and that the other
papers of the State be requested to copy.

Slow anid quick Legislation.
Congress, and especially the Sen
ate has been severely criticised for
its delay in acting on the tariff bill.
The Wilson bill was proliosed in the
House of Representatives last De
cember; it passed that house in Jan
uarv; the Senate held it under con
sideration for six months.
Whatever view one may take of
the delav-a matter on which most
men look with the eyes of partisans
-legislation in this country on sub
jects so large as this of the tariff has
usually been slow and deliberate.
This has usually happened for tha
same reasons that have prevailed
this year; opposition to party meas
ures is always fierce and bitter, and
some sort of comprolise between the
opposing Congressmen is usually
necessary. Moreover, it is far fron
an unusual sight to witness proinpt
action in one house of Congress, fol
lowed by long delay in the other.
Perhaps the best recent instance
was the McKinley tariff bill of 18390.
This measure was reported in the
House of Representatives April 16th,
and passed that body May 21st. But
it did not pass the Senate for nearly
four months, until September lth.
The House of Representatives was
prompt, and the Senate was deliber
ate in passing the silvor repeal bill
Going back to older periods of our
Congressional history, the fomnous
Missouri Comnpromise law of 1820 il
lustrates the same tendency. The
original bill, to admit Missouri as a
State, was prop~osedI in the House of'
Representatives ini Felbruairy, 151 0.
with an anendiuent against the ex
tention of slavery in the State. With
this amendmnent it passed the House
of representatives promptly, but
failed to pass the Senate at all that
session. In fact it was two whole
years after the billh was first intro
duced before it becante a law.
. Among the famnous compromnise
measures of 1850 was the Fugitive
Slave.L~aw, on which Daniel Webster
made his mnemnorable "7th~ of March
speech." Trhiis bill w~as proposed ill
the Senate January 29th; it did not
pass until thme close of August, al
though the session was alnost whol
ly given up to the discussion of it.
In 1834, after President Jackson
had comlpelled his Secretary of the
Treasurv to remove the government
deposits~ from the United States
Bank, Henry Clay offered -.d the
Senate passed a resolution censuring
the President for his action. This

shoul resist the execution and enforce

legislature, if its members are w.orthy of
decent respect, will have the city governed
by a metropolitan force.
In saying this, we would admionish our
legislators and executive onicers, and police
force, to uso no more force than is actually
necessatry, to be a little blind occasionally
and other timas to be a little forgiving, but
if force is necessary, then nss all that ts
