THE MANNIG TMES.

Wednesday, August 22, 1S94.
The State constables are making
liquor siezures in Charleston and oth
General H. L. Farley has conclu
not to run for Congress and has with
drawn from the race with a wry face.
The speculators are again making
an effort to bleed our farmers out of
their hard work by running up the
price of jute bagging, and unless the
Alliance comes along to protect our
cotton growers there is no telling
what the price of bagging will be be

L. D. Bass, formerly a preacher in
Manning is now a candidate for the
Senate on the wont-pledge-myself
ticket in Florence county. His po
litical prospects might be good in
Florence, but in Clarendon where he
lived and preached, we do not believe
-he could be elected dog-pelter if there
was such an officer to be voted for.
Dr. Sampson Popesis determined
to dash his hopes against the politi
cal wall by running against the nom
inee of the Reicrm convention. He
is banking upon the Conservatives to
help him, but he will not be able to
get enough of them in any county in
the State to carry a single precinct,
and when the primary election is over,
poor Pope may find consolation in
humming to himself:
Once I was happy, but now I'm for

The State Supreme Court will be
called together about the latter part
of this month in special session fol
the purpose of deciding whether the
dispensary act of 1893 is constitu
tional. The State for some time was
anxious to have this question defi
nitely settled by the court and then,
if decided to be constitutional a strici
enforcement of the law will follow.
Judge Aldrich in a recent decision al
Aiken decided against the constitu
tionality of the law upon the ground
e urpreme court had already
deided the act of 1892 and that the
act of 1893 is about the same. He
stated that he had not made a perso
nal study of the acts, and based his
decision upon the one made by the
Now, that the matter will be heard
before a full bench is a source of
gratification to all peace loving citi
zens and we hope, the court will not
take long in relieving the people of
suspense. There is no gain sayrng
it, that the former decision left every
one in a muddled condition of mind
and instead of putting the matter at
rest as it should have done, the de
cision had the effect of creating all
sorts of devices for carrying on the
sale of liquor. Barrooms sprung up
in every town and the town councils
were powerless to 'do anything for
the reason, the decision made their
authority exceedingly doubtfuL. In
-spite of the cry of the prohibitionists
that the decision meant prohibition,
the doors of the barrooms were kept
wide open day and night and liquor
sold over the counters as publicly as
when the license system was in ex
istence and the prohibitionists made
no attempt to do anything. The re
sult was that the question was car
ried into our politics to the extent
.that men opposing the administration
would oppose the dispensary law and
those favoring the administration
would advocate it; often in discussing
the affair harsh language. would be
resorted td, and a friendship possi
bly that had lasted from early youth
would be smashed into atoms while
the barkeeper went right on unmo
lested and sold the stuff which was
causing so much irritation.
We hope therefore that the dispen
sary act will be heard fairly and
squarely upon its merits and that
vexed question will soon meet with a
settlement that will be finaL If the
court says it is unconstitutional, then
close up the dispensaries forever, but
if the law is held to be constitutional
enforce it strictly and show the peo
that itis alaw made for the benefit
of the people. If it can not be shown
*to be such a law then the Legislature
should tear it into pieces and not
leave a particle of it left upon the
The State Reform Convention is
now a thing of the past, and those
that attended instead of having a
Kilkenny cat fight, as the opposition
predicted, really had a regular love
feast. John Gary Evans was nomi
nated after the first ballot was an
nounced and his nomination was
made unanimous. Captain D. J.
Bradham in behalf of Clarendon, was
the first to propose making the nomi
natioa unanimous, and as he uttered
the words a shout went up from the
convention which almost made the
roof shake. The vote showed Evans
262, Ellerbe 44, and Tindal 14,
Chesterfield placed Mr. Tindal in
nomination and a hearty second came
from Clarendon. Then a committee
was appointed to notify the success
ful candidate and to escort him and
his opponents before the convention.
Captain |Bradham was on this
committee and he had the hon
or of escorting the next gov
ernor of South Carolina into the
convention. When the procession,
headed by Captain Bradham, and
soon-to-be-governor Evans, walked
up the aisle, a deafening applause
greeted them, and when the conven
tion discovered Captain Bradham's
empty sleeve the applause was re
newed. We were told that when the
committee called upon the nominee
he caught hold of Captain Bradham's
arm and begged the privilege of go
ing into the conventi~on with one of
his father's old soldiers. As soon as
quiet was restored the n~ominee d
ivered a speech which made friends
d those who had recently fought him.
lis remarks were dignified and to
he point, and when he finisied there
vas more applause.
W. H. Ellerbe was next called for
md as he rose from his seat the con
rention gave him a hearty welcome
md the short speech he made was
mne, that impressed every member of
;he convention. He said he was
airly beaten, and that he would if
he necessity arose, stump the State
in behalf of the nominee.
Mr. Tindal was also called for, but
he was prevented from being present
on account of sickness in his family.
In looking over the field we came
to the conclusion that J. G. Evans
was the choice of the people; that
Ellerbe is a coming man; and that
Tindal is stronger now than he was
before the compaign.
There was no disposition to sulk
from any quarter, and the 'delegates
went home feeling that what little
dissatisfaction might have existed be
fore the convention met, does not ex
ist now and on the 28th inst. the Re
formers will turn out en masse and
give the nominee a full vote.

A Reformer's Warning.
EDITrR MANxING TDos:-In a re
cent issue of your paper, I saw where
something was said in reference to
the apparent want of political ambi
tion on the part of our people, and
the apparent indifference of Reform
ers in regard to the filling of the
county offices, few, at that time, hav
ing announced their candidacy for
official preferment. Since the publi
cation of these remarks and before
the books were closed against entries,
several good names had been listed
for the race for Legislative honors.
Among the number we mention
Wade Kennedy, of Salem, W. C. Da
vis, of Manning, and C. M. Davis of
Davis Station. These men are all
true-blue Reformers and rock-ribbed
Tillmanites. We know where they
stand. We know that they stand
firm for reform measures and for B.
R Tillman for the U. S. Senate. We
know these things because they have
not left us in doubt to do any guebs
ing; having talked out in meeting in
plain, unmistakable, and uncom
promising english. These men,
if sent to Columbia, can be re
lied upon to do the right thing in the
interest of the people every time.
And if defeated in a fair election, they
can still be relied upon to stand where
they stood before-they will not sulk1
and find fault and claim that reform
has gone to the eternal bow wows
'simply because their opponents got
the votes. They are built on correct
Reform lines and their foundation is
principle, not office.
There is another candidate in the
field for Legislative honors whom I
have r'eserved for special mention
Mr. Ellison Capers Jr., formerly of
Columbia and recently of Clarendon.
Mr. Capers claims to be a Reformer
too; but a Reformer who is opposed
to B. R. Tillmnan, to the dispensary
and to other important reform meas
tires. Well, we are glad Mr. Ellison
Capers Jr. has not left us in doubt as
to where he stands; and standing
wherehe does we conclude that Mr.
Capers is mighty fine material to
keep at home. He is too tender a
bud of reform to be sent out from
the nursery, we must keep him in
the hot house and with due care and
cultivation this tender reform plant
may yet bloom into a full flower, but
as yet, he is too very tender a bud.
Yes, Mr. Ellison Capers, Jr., must re
main at home and grow and toughen
into a rock-ribbed Reformer like
those mentioned above.
But to be able to preserve our
treasure from the blighting influence
of the Anti winds, we must be on the
alert. We must not be so sanguine
as to be indifferent about voting at
the polls on the 28th inst. and thua
allow the unexpected to happen, for
the unexpected could happen as fol
lows: Mr. Ellison Capers Jr. claims
to be a Reformer, and so it appears
that all of the candidates for the
general assembly are Reformers.
Under this impression a great many
Reformers might argue thus: Well,
there are none but good Reformers
in the field, and they are all good
men, I have no personal preference,
I would as leave have one as another,
there is no opposition, I have work
to do at home, I will not trouble my
self to go to the polls to vote. Very
well, now here is what might be the
result of such reasoning and con
clusions: The Antis all turn out and
vote solidly for our tender bud of
reform, Mr. Ellison Capers Jr., and
elect him. Well, what of that? You
ask, is he not a Reformer? 0, yes,
so he claims, but a Reformer opposed
to B. R. Tillman and Reform, and ao
his election would mean a vote for
M. C. Butler. Ah! now you see the
point clearly and begin to smell
something slightly fishy. Now gen
tlemen, a Reformer who is opposed
to the head, the center, the essence
and the very originator of the Reform
movement in the State of South Car
olina is too pure, too innocent, too
tender and too fragrant a bud of re
form for me, and I think for you
and for every other true-blue, rock
ribbed Reform Tillmanite in the
County of Clarendon.
Now what must be done to keep
our tender bud of reform at home
and preserve him from the biting,
blasting influence of the Anti winds
until he can bloom into a full Reform
flower? Why, simply turn out and
vote. That is simple, that is our du
ty and of course we will do it.
August 28th inst. is the date. Be
at the polls. Vote and remember
our tender bud of reform, Mr. Ellison
Capera Jr., the Reformer who is
opposed to Reform. X. R.
