T'HE MANNING TIMER
LOUIS APPELT, Editor.
Weduesday, October 3, 1S94.
They Petered out.
The Conservatives did not nomi
nate a State ticket as it was expected
they would do, and for the peace and
welfare of the State we are glad they
did nct. Had a few hot-heads her
allowed full swing in that conve- a
our people to-day would '..atior
state of ferment and stri*- oe in a
nately the conservaF- .e, but fortu
convention were ~ ve men in thal
vent such aetermined to pre.
when P a condition, ani
after ...ey saw that county
y* county was represented by
.ts of elegations, and some coun
ties noL represented at all, they man
fully refused to become parties tc
what they considered a suicidal pol
icy, and when the majority under
took to force a State ticket upon
them, they withdrew, and this action
brought the advocates of nominations
to their senses. They found them
selves without the desired backing
so they threw up the sponge. It was
our privilege to be in Columbia the
night of the Conservative convention,
and after remaining up all night
,ith the desire to be admitted as a
spectator, we had to come back home
disappointed. The gathering was
not a public convention, but a secret
caucus, and none but delegates were
allowed inside. The Reformers have
held caucuses, but whenever they
did so the Conservatives held up
their hands in holy horror at the out
rage. It was simply outrageous for
the Reformers to hold a caucus. It
was undemocratic and unconstitu
tional, but now since the Antis have
held an eight-hour caucus and an
eight minute convention to do abso
lutely nothing but cuss each other
for being cowards, we think the hue
and cry about caucuses will cease.
Knocking at the door for admission
into the march-up-and-down-hill-con
vention was a number of Democrats,
but their knocks were unheeded, and
when Edmund H. Deas was seen
walking about on the inside, those
outside sent up a howl of indignation.
They naturally wanted to know why
white Democrats were excluded from
a meeting of white men and cspored
RBepublicans admitted-. The only ex
planation they received was that Deas
Te door-keeper unnoticed.
Imatters not how Deas got into the
secret 'caucus, he was in there
all the same, and it is said that he
was seen to shake hands with
some on the inside. Now, since
the Conservatives have properly de
cided to not plunge the State into
'strife by putting out an opposition
ticket, the question comes up as to
what will General Butler do ? Will
he continue in the race for the Sena
tomship ? or does the action of the
Conservatives shelve him. Unless
General Butler's friends expect to
-capture enough Reform votes in the
General Assembly to elect him, we
cannot see the wisdom of his re
mnaining in the field. In a few coun
ties there will be county tickets run
in opposition to the regular ticket,
but even if they succeed in defeating
the regular nominees, there will not
be enough of them to elect General
Butler with every Conservative vote
in the General Assembly voting for
The State Democratic Executive
committee has awarded the printing
of the election tickets this year to Mr.
C. A. Calvo yr of the Columbia Reg
SWe see it stated in the newspapers
that Attorney General Buchanan is
likely to succeed Judge Fraser as
Judge of the third circuit. We hope
this is an idle rumor. Judge Fraser,
if he desires a re-election should have
it without opposition, because he is a
conservative man and an upright
~judge. He has not used his position
to gratify political spleen, but to the
contrary he has held the scales of
justice with an even hand. The
bench should not be dragged into
politics, especially when it is adorned
with such men as T. B. Fraser.
The Democracy of New York has
.eailed upon David 3. Hill to lead its
forces on to victory. In the Demo
cratic convention last week he was
unanimously made the nominee of
the party, and the campaign cry is
"Brains vs. Boodle." Levi P. Mor
ton, ex-Vice-President, is the Repub
lican standard-bearer. The fight in
New York will be lively, as the Dem
ocrats are not united. Already there
is-an Independent Democratic ticket
in the field led by that mugwump ele
ment which fought Hill when he was
a candidate for the Presidencv.
There was a dispensary established
at Bluiffon last Monday, this makes
sixty eight now in the~State. So far
sice the reopening of these institu
tions the Counties and towns have
received but little income and the
cas of it is very apparent to the
casl observer. There is hardly a

: -ooms running at full blast.

brother-in-law of Congressman Mc

Surpreme Court on appeal.
Dr. Sampson Pope has blown an
other blast upon his political trumpet
and is out with a manifesto in which
he says he will give his word of hon

natorial race to the finish. Dr. Pope
has a perfect right to run in the gen

he will be well advertised to go back

The Mobile Daily News gives the
following information as to what was
done by Congress:
The Fifty-third Congress has
wiped away the last vestige of mili
tary despotism and federal control of
State elections from the statute books.
It has reduced the expenses of the
government $30,000,000. It has
passed a tariff bill that puts wool,
lumber, salt, cotton bagging, cotton
ties, binding twine and agricultural
implements on the free list. It has
reduced the taxes on woolen goods
50 per cent. and on cotton goons the
same; it has reduced the duty on
coal and iron ore 75 cents to 40 cents
a ton; it has made a breach in the
tariff wvall; it has broken the combina
tion of the confederated monopolists;
it has given the country a fair start
on the road to free trade, and it has
placed a tax on incomes so that those
who have been growing rich on other
people's taxes may know how it feels
pay taxes themselves.
