cLaurin Turns Loose The Dogs of War.
Another letter has been given to
the newspapers by Congressman
John L. McLaurin, which causes
some people to ask, "What is the
matter with MeLaurin?"
We have carefully read the letter,
and find it is in accord with the views
held by McLaurin for a long time
There is no change of position, nor
anything in it that warrants the sur
mise that McLaurin is apologizing
to, or tiying to make fair weather
with the opposition faction. In an
editorial published some weeks agc
under the head, "The Dawn o
Peace," we took a similar position,
and cautioned the friends of the Re
form movement against the greedi
ness of political pirates who are on
board of the Reform ship for the car
go she carries; and subsequent event
has shown that our words of warn
ing was not without basis, as is seer
by the action of that delegation whc
waited upon the proprietor of the
Columbia Register and demandec
the removal of editor Koester. These
men wanted this editor removed anc
replaced by one who would use the
columns of that paper to keep up ag
itation and irritatic, - eroby th
real questions to -be pondered ovel
by the masses might be lost sight of
There is no doubt about the peo
ple being desirous of having strif'
allayed, and they feel that a wise se
lection of delegates to the constitu
tional convention will wipe out ou
differences and bring the white peo:
ple back into a spirit of harmony anu
unity; but a few spoilsmen in ou
Reform ranks are as much oppose
to such a result, as the devil is tc

Congressman McLaurin has don
herculean work in Congress, and hi
constituents are proud of the recor<
he has made; but there are some pol
iticians who are jealous of him, an(
they have employed newspaper edit
ors to malign, slander, and vilify Mc
Laurin, and by various other scheme
endeavored to make the people mis
trust him. The few who are afte:

In 1886 McLaurin enlisted in th<
war to break up an arrogant ring
now he sees another ring has beel
formed within our own ranks and h<
has made war upon it and he wil
use his best efforts towards breakin1
it up. Is McLaurin true to the Re
form cause? Take up the Congres
sional Record and read it. Read hi
Sutterances in sl -' 1'-' ---
- ---'at he has exposed th
true inwardness of the "nit ni
-crrnIpe's liberties. His caree:
has proven him to be a devoted foi
lower of Jefferson, Jackson, and Cal
houn, and that his mind and hear
is full with the message his peopl
gave him to carry to Washington
There never was a truer representa
tive of the people, or one who worki
more zealously for their cause; it il
for this the people of the sixth Con
gressional district have placed upoz
him 'an armor that is impenatrabh~
to all the "spears" of his enemies
McLaurin would have waged wai
upon that crowd of Reform-pretend
ers last summer when they first be
gan their manipulations had it nol
been that some of his true friends
were afraid his enemies would
under the political excitement of the
campaign, succeed in deceiving thE
people, and possibly cause us tc
lose him from the council-hall it
Washington where his service:
is much needed, and it was only af
ter much pleading with him that he
consented to smother his feelings foi
The reasons do not exist now
*which made his friends hold hii
hands, and he has entered the worli
of thwarting those, whose only inter
est in the Reform movement
is counted by the number oi
nickles ,that drop into theii
political ; slots. He comes for
ward with no uncertain sound and
charges the existence of a "Ring
more desperate, more autocratic,
more tyrannical, more unscrupulous
than ever dominated the State or
controlled the destinies of a free peo
ple," ano~ says that this ring is "mak
ing preparations to control the con
stitutional convention, and thereby
perpetuate themselves in power."
-McLaurin will not submit to thai
set of reckless, selfish, party-wreckers
having their way without his protest,
and he fearlessly steps to the front
and calls a halt. He favors the har
monizing of the factions, and in this
he should have the support of every
true Reformer and Conservative in
the State, because we realize it is the
only way to secure that peace which~
is so much desired and needed for
the welfare of the masses.
The Columbia Register, which is
very friendly to McLaurin, thinks his
letter "untimely," and that it will not
have a tendency to bring the result
desired. We must differ with our
esteemed contemporary, as we can
not see any good in a hush-you-will
ruin-things policy, and while there
are some things in that letter which
might well have been left unsaid at
this time, they were the promptings
of McLaurin's heart, and "out of the
fullness of the heart the mouth speak
eth." The people admire, if politi
cians do not, a man who treats with
them openly, fully, and above all,
In order to properly awaken the
r ople they must be spoken to plain
y.Dealing in softly-sounding
phrases and in inuendoes will not ac
complish any desired result, and if
the people are to understand from
McLaurin "it is a fight to the hilt"
which he is going to wage on the men
who na nsing the Reform movement
for selfish purposes, he is to be con
gratulated for his manly stand by
every one who admires courage; for
to take such a position just at this
time requires a courage not often ex
hibited in politics, and it will be left
to the people to say whether they
will stand by the man who is honest
ly telliag them what he believes and
whose public record is that of a faith
ful servant, or a set of men that will
pour honied-words into the unsus
pecting ear while their hands are dig
ging down into the people's pockets.
The Reform ship was launched to
fight "Rings, 'Cliques,' and Bossism;"
gallantly she engaged in the fight
and came out with every spar stand
ing and with the colors of Reform
proudly floating from her mast-head;
but for the past year she has been
lying idle at her moorings and de
structive worms have gotten into her
pilot-house; they are gnawing at the
rudder ropes around her wheel; and
they must be cleaned out before they
infest the whole vessel and become so
deeply imbedded that nothing short
of a tearing to pieces will eradicate
them. McLaurin sees this, and he
has the courage to sound the tocsin
of alarm. Those wanting McLaurin
removed from political activity will
now charge him with "treachery'
and with "going back on the
movement," and it is for just this
very reason his friends pleaded with
him not to start his fight during the
last campaign while the public mind
was inflamed and not prepared to ap
preciate his motives. Is there a rino
If there is not, then there is some
thing which has that appearance
There are a few men who have as
sumed to themselves the power oi
dictating the policy of others, and
when they strike a man who feel
that God has endowed him with. f
mind that he might do his own think
ing, and this man undertakes t(
utilize that great blessing, these fey
men retire to the room of a hotel, oi
into a State-house office, and hold i
- court of inquiry as to the man's loy

' Congressmen. The Reform move

a thing as the suppression of fre

-McLaurin's letter is a proclamatioz
of war and under his banner will b<

-prosperity, and by doing all in thei:
Spower to make the constitutiona
Sconvention a non-factional body, thej
will succeed and thwart those un
scrupulous politicians whom he say:

tion and perpetuate themselves ir
-There is an element in the Con
-servative faction that take McLaurin't
letter as a sweet morsel to roll undel
their tongues, imagining that he has
cut himself off from the Reforn
movement; to theni wve will say, they
were never more mistaken. McLaur
in is as strong an advocate for th<
Reform cause now, as he was the da)
he entered the fight, and itt is on ac
count of his devotion, that he is jeal
ous of the welfare of that cause
which makes him sound the warning
so the people might know theil
cherished hope will be shaken to its
Ifoundations if they do not arouse
and do something to keep selfisi
schemers from coverting the Reforir
movement into a political machine
and we ask all who have the welfare
of the State at heart to ponder wel
of McLaurin's letter and not become
misguided by the "stop-thief" huE
and cry of greedy politicians. WE
also ask as a matter of simple justice;
the niewspapers which have beer
questioning Mr. McLaurin's motives,
to giv e this editorial space in theii
columns in order that their readern
may know why it was the fight was
not started earlier. Our statement
of the cause is true of our own
knowledge, and as we feel honored
in being recognized as one of Mc
Laurins friends, we will say that his
holding back for time was in defer
ence to our wishes as well as oi
others. Being in position to know~
what was going on, we knew that if
he started the fight last summer he
would have been crushed out by
the vihitication and misrepresentations
of hireling editors, and that the peo
ple of the sixth Congressional district
would have lost the brightest light
now illuminating the halls of Con
gress, and which is attracting, by its
brilliancy the serious attention of the
nation. We believe that it is better
judgment to sometimes bear with
our evils for a time, rather than reck
lessly rush into a buzz-saw of demo
lition, and if some of our
people and newspapers would
use more judgment and stop
trying to carry ;things their
own way regardless of consequences,
they would fare better and engender
less strife and bitterness.
McLaurin speaks truly when he
says "the Anties, one part are cowed
and whipped, the other part too mad
to have any sense." The part that
are "cowed and whipped"' are those
that see the justice of the Reform
cause and want to join us, but only
hold back because afraid of the abuse
of that part "too mad to have any
of the "Antis~ together with the
shrewd, calculating, grasping, and
selfish Reform politicians that is
keeping up turmoil and crippling
every branch of business; the former
are only gratifying their contempti
able prejudices and bringing ruin
on themselves, while the latter are
fattening from the spoils of their
conquests and laugh with fiendish
glee at the craziness of their friends

unjustifiable. All who take any interest in the
question should keep In view the fact that
Hawaii is entirely independent of us and that
in its relations to us it is a foreign country. A
I ship has been sent to Honolulu. not because
there has been any changc in the policy of the
administration, and not because there seems
to be any Imminent necessity for Its presence
there. The vessel has been sent in precise ac
cordance with the policy of the administration
in every case of the kind and from motives of
extreme caution. and because there is a possi
bility that disturbances may be renewed
which might result in danger to the persons or
property of American citizens entitled to the
protection of the United States. This course
was at once determined upon as soon as in
