THE MANNING TIMES.
LOUIS APPELT, Editor.
Wednesday, January 16, 1S93.
The great topic among the news
paper fraternity is the coming con
stitutional convention, and with- few
exceptions all agree that the conven
tion should be a non-factional body.
We regard this a good sign, and that
the day is not far off when there will
be a general pulling together for the
good of the State. This is as it should
be and if faithfully carried out the
upheaval we have been having the
past four years will finally prove to
be for the best.
It is suggested in last 31onday's
News and Courier by its able Colum
bia correspondent that each'punty
select one representative from each
faction, to meet in Columbia "to go
over the ground and come to some
areement as to the election of dele
gates." We agree with the plan
offered by this correspodent, and be
lieve that a conferance so selected
would devise a plan by which both
factions could agree and thus save
the Democratic party from being
torn asunder by selfish politicians.
To represent Clarendon this cor
respondent mentions the names of
Major Abe Levi, of the Conservative
faction, and Captain D. J. Bradham, of
the Referm faction. If 3r. Kohn had
always lived in Clarendon and was
well acquainted with every man in it
he could not have selected two bet
ter men for the purpose. Major Levi
has always been regarded a leading
spirit in the Conservative faction at
the same time he has always refused
to give his support to Independant
ism, and we believe that any pledge
be would make would be faithfully
adhered to by his faction. Captain
Bradham has the confidence of the
Reform faction and is regarded its
leader in this county, and any propo
sition agreed to by him would be
zealously supported by the Reform
ers. If this suggestion is adopted
throughout the State, we will surely
have a constitutional convention
made up of patriots regardless of
factional afliations, and one that will
bring the white people of the State
together in peace and harmony.
The Times has always favored a
non-factional convention and stands
ever ready to do all in its power to
aid in bringing about such a result;
we believe the future welfare of the
State depends upon our people get
ting together, and as long as we
stand devided into hostile camps,
just so long will we keep away those
desiring to come among us from
* Already we see that the low price
of cotton is driving the large cotton
mills from the East, and we can get
them here if we will unite and show
to them our'advantages, but we can
-not do anything as long as we stand
apart and say hard things of each
in the way of our State government.
Let us come together with a full de
termination to build up our common
interests, regardless of the howling
of political wolves.
The Marion Star, heretofore a
newspaper that endeavored to say
meaner things of the State adminis
tration than the Columbia State, has
changed its politics, and is now be
ing published in the interest of the
Reform movement. One by one the
calamity bowlers change their tunes,
and it will not be long before there
will not be a newspaper in the State
that will oppose the Reform faction.
Governor Evans was the recipient
of a number of social attentions in
Charleston last week, which made
the Columbia State turn green with
envy. That paper would have re
joiced had the Governor been
snubbed by the people of Charleston,
but the citizens of that city are open
ing their eyes to common sense and
politeness, and are beginning to see
that following indly the lead of
those opposed to ie administration
does Charleston hL:mr and has cost
her thousands of dipars.
To start of the ball for suggestions
for suitable representatives to the
constitutional convention the Times
suggests Hon. Joseph F. Rhame and
Major Abe Levi, of the Conservative
faction, and Hon., James~ E. Tindal
and Captain Daniel J. Bradham, of
the Reform faction. If a stronger
ticket can be suggested we would be
glad to have it made. Each one of
the above named, are men too well
known to the people of Clarendon to
Deed any words of praize from us.
They have always stood by the Dem
ocracy and can be counted on to
work for the best interests of the
masses. What is needed is a strong
delegation and these we name will
represent Clarendon with credit.
The school question will be one of
the most important for the con
sideration of the coming constitu
tional convention. If there is any
thing that needs changing or improv
ing it is our free school system.
South Carolina makes liberal appro
priations for her colleges and it is
right that she should; because the
institutions of high learning are a
pecessity, but these appropriations
should not be made at the expense
of the "old Seld school" where the
children of the poor man look for an
When the convention -meets, the
very first act should be, to put cour
home schooils on a solid basis so they
can be run at least nine months in
the year. If necessary to acconm
plish this result, increase the poll and
property tax. Instead of having a
two mill property tax; make it four
mills and raise the poll tax to three
dol ar:: then give the taxpayer the
right to direct the tax collector to
which school he wants his taxes ap
plied. With such a scheme South
Carolina will have a system of free
schools that will educae all of ther
Congressman McLurin's speech,
against the Carlisle bi:l, which was
snowed under last week, continues to
attract the attention of the United
States and be is kept quite busy an
swering the requests for copies.
The civil appropriation bill re
ported to Congress, gives Charles-tou
$500,000 to continue the improve
ments in the harbor and the work
on the jetties. With a first-class har
bor and a sensible submission to the
will of the majority we see no reason
why Charleston cannot take on a
new growth and do away with her
ancient street cars.
Ex-Congressman Tillman's son
Jimmie, and Governor Evan's broth
er Barney, startled the citizens of
Edgefield yesterday by shooting at
each other in a lawyer's office. Both
were wounded, but not seriously,
and it is feared that the trouble be
tween these hot-blooded young men
is not ended. The cause of the diffi
culty dates back to a dance over a year
ago, and Evans sueing Tillman on a
note. Governor E-ars took the first
train for the scene of the difficulty.

WEEK IN CONGRESS
Program for the Coming Few
Days in Both Branches.
URGENT DEFICIENCY BILL IN SENATE.
Monday and Saturday in the House, the
District of Columbia Days-The In
dian Appropriation Bill.
WAsIXGTox, January 14.-It is con
fidently expected that the urgent defi
ciency bill will be out of the way be
fore the end of the week that opens in
congress today. There will be speeches
on the income tax from various repub
licans, but there will be no effect at
undue delay nor will the republicans
countenance fillibustering. Despite the
opposition of Mr. Quay, which has ne
cessitated several roll calls, and the
fight that Mr. Iill is making, as soon
as the republicans have made the
speeches arranged for, they will have a
vote on the bill and will largely sup
port the appropriation. Mr. Cockrell
expects to see the vote taken by Wed
nesday, and says the bill will have at
least fifty votes out of the total vote of
eighty-five as the senate now stands.
Nicaraguan canal bill is still the un
finished business. The pension, mili
tary academy and the fortifications ap
propriation bills have all been report
ed to the senate and Mr. Cockrell ex
pects to call them up as fast as possible.
The canal bill, while retaining its right
of way, will probably yield to the ap
propriation bills when they are called
up. The interest in the senate this
week will centre about the room of the
finance committee rather than upon
the proceedings of the floor with one
exception. Mr. Gorman's promised
speech on the financial question, which
was to have been delivered Saturday
will probably be today.
The Week Iu the House.
The business to be considered in the
house this week will be probably ar
ranged by the committee on rules at a
meeting to be held today. Two days
are already appropriated, Monday and
Tuesday, to be devoted to the consider
ation of business relating to the Dis
trict of Columbia and Tuesday will be
at least partly occupied with the con
sideration of the Indian appropriation
bill. In the first morning hour de
voted to committee business the Grout
bill to make oleogemarine, butterine
and other substitutes of dairy products
subject to the laws of the state intc
which they may be transported will
come up and inevitably precipitate a
parlimiamentary contet. There
remains but one hour for its
consideration under the present call
of committees and opponents to the
bill profess th-eir ability to prevent its
passage within that period. Should
the bill fail to reach a final vote at this
stage Mr. Hatch will doubtless appeal
to the committee on rules for a special

STATESMEN WHO ARE JOBLESS.
Messrs. Bynum and Springer Secretly Seek

WASHINGTON, January 14.-Very qui
etly many of the statesmen out of a job
in consequence of the late election are
making earnest efforts to get a.plaee at
the administration free-lunch after the
4th of MYarch. It is understood that
Mr. Bynum of Indiana, is endeavoring
to secure an appointment on the board
of appraisers. The salary of 87,000 a
year is tempting to him, and it is said
that he will probably succeed in get,
ting it. His hunt for the place, how
ever, is being conducted with great se
crecy, as it is probable that knowledge
of his intentions would excite some an
tagonism in Indiana. It will be re
membered that after his defeat for con
gress Mr. Bynum caused a sensation by
denouncing office-seekers, and stating
that he had been offered a bribe of
$5,000 to assist one of the candidates to

It is said that Mr. Springer, of 1111
nois, is seeking a seat on the bench of
the court of claims. His appointment
to this position might or might not be
regarded as a reward for his fruItless
efforts to get a financial bill through
the house. There is at present no va
cancy on the court of claims bench, but
it is understood that one of the oldest
judges is willing to retire and give Mr.
Cleveland an opportunity to make an
