THE MAlThIDTG TDMES.
LOUIS APPELT, Editor.
Wednesday, January 2, 1895.
The year 1895 is now being en
tered into, and all of us should re
solve to makE this year surpass any
of the past. Let us all feel that we
are here breathing the same atmos
phere, depending on each other to
make life a pleasure, and work for
the brightning of our future pros
pects. We will be called upon be
fore long to select men to represent
us in a convention that is to change
our constitution, and every voter
should seriously take this matter into
his mind and consider well before he
casts his vote. He should select his
representatives on their merits and
not be influenced by the hurrahs of
We want the constitution changed
so that our people can get better
school facilities where their children
can at least get a primary 6ducation
at home: We also want the consti
tution changed whereby the State
Government can be run with less ex
pense in order that the now tax
burdened people can get some relief,
and to get the desired changes the
people must steer clear of politicians
and look about for men that have no
political friends to reward or foes to
punish. The constitutional conven
tion should be composed of good
practical business men, without such
there is great danger of bringing
about ruin instead of good.
A convention to change a constitu
tion is far different from a political
caucus or convention. One is for the
betterment of the people for many
years to come and the other is for
the advancement of a few individ
uals for a short period. It therefore
behooves every voter to think well
before he acts. The acts of a politi
cal convention may be overthrown at
an election following it, but the acts
of a constitutional convention may
stand for generations. When the
time comes to select our represen
tatives let us all make our selection
with a view to bettering our present
condition and this we can do if we
will not allow factional prejudice to
interfere. The Times has battled as
had for the Reform faction as any
newq! aper in the State, and it still
cheriihes its principles, but at the
same time we are willing to concede
that in the conservative faction there
are men who have the welfare of the
State at heart and are willing to join
in to help work for the good of the
The Lexow committee has suc
eeeded in exposing the corruption of
the New York city police force, and
now another committee should go to
work and expose the corruption of
the Lexow committee.
The Governor of South Carolina
has been given the power to estab
ummjha Metropolitan police in the
~ad cities throughiout the State.
~'~ther or not the giving of this
power will result to the benefit of
the cities and towns remains to be
seen. If a city makes honest efforts
to enforce the dispensary law they
will be in no danger of having the
-Metropolitan police measure thrust
upon them, but if they are going to
Kallow the law to be violated as they
have done in the past, the governor
will have the law enforced with the
power given him.
We hope that governor Evans will
not find it necessary to take the
police control from the cities and
towns, because we do not think that
the establishing of police other than
by the municipalities will have
a tendency to bring about the har
mony so much desired.
-They're After Keoster.
It is rumored that a committee
representing the extreme wing of the
Reform faction have demanded the
removal of Editor Keoster of the Co
lumbia Register upon the ground
that his editorial utterances are too
iild to suit the exremists. If this is
-true then the sooner the people take
up the cudgel and beat out of the Re
form ranks men who desire an editor
to be a fire band, the better it will be
for the Reform faction. Editor
Keoster has stood up manfully for
thie Reform movement, at the same
time he has not allowed himself dic
tated to by a few hungry office-seek
ers, whose only hope of continuing
in office is to have the people in con
stant turmoil and strife. The conser
vative course adopted by euch editors
as Keoster is not only the proper
.course, but the only one that will
make the Reform ranks hold together.
The day for exciting the masses has
passed and now, what the people want
is the discussion of meures and not
men. We believe the people are
thoroughly satisfied that extreme ut
terances are doing harm and-thae
desjenwn paper~ish public
men make an effort to restore a kind
er feeling than has been existing the
past four years.
We hope the Register will continue
on in its conservative course and long
after the men who are trying to have
Keoster removed are forgotton, the
the Register and its editor will be
enjoying the respect and confidence
of the people.
Theodore S. Gaillard Dead.
Theodore S. Gaillard, ex-chief State con
stable, died in Charleston Christmas day
and was buried at St. Stephen's. Mr. Gail
lard was known to many of the members of
the gallant old 23rd regiment having served
with that regiment during a portion of the
war. His death will come as a surprise to
many who knew him, but he had been in
ill-health for some time. He was the first
chief constable under the Dispensary re
gime. and though not at Darlington during
thie riot, he was with the constables in the
swamps a day after, remaining with them
until the trouble was at an end.
After the decision of the Supreme Court
c:osing the dispensaries he was appointed~
a trial justice at Charleston, which posi
tion he filled at the time of his death, hav

SENATOR BUTLER'S FAREWELL
Closes His Political Career With a Din
ner to His Colleagues.
Washington, Dec. 19.-Senator
Butler of South Carolina, whose Sen
atorial career is rapidly coming to a
close, gave a farewell dinner to a
number of his colleagues at the
Country Club to-night. Socially, Mr.
Butler will be a great loss. He is
very popular in the Senate, and is
the most cultured member of that
body hailing from the South. But
ler apparently is without political
prospects, and a- he is comparative
ly poor there seems nothing for him
but return to South Carolina and
vegetate. With the Tillmanites in
the ascendancy there is no chance for
him at home. Butler has been a
strong ant i-Cleveland man, so he
cannot expect to be taken care of by
the administration. It would be a
nice thing for Cleveland to overlook
the fact that Senator Butler has hon
estly differed from him, and provide
some dignified place for the chival
rous South Carolinian. However
the President is not that kind of a
man. Mr. Butler might have a sbow
with the Republican President if
Don Cameron had any influence, as
there are several places like Inter
state Commissioner that have to be
filled by 1Democrats.
The dinner of Senator Butler was
a very lovely affair, and the deep feel
ing that Don Cameron displayed in a
speech was said to be affecting. The
remarkable friendship between Cam
eron and Butler, which was referred
to at to-night's dinner, was begun in
rather a dramatic way. The present
Butler's uncle, Pierce Butler, who
was one of the leading men in the
Senate in the fifties, and old Simon
Cameron were great friends. Old
Simon had been elected to the
Senate over Col. John W. Forney,
and Governor Bigley of Pennsylvania
endeavored to contest Cameron's
right to the seat. Pierce Butler, who
liked Cameron, got up and objected
to the Keystone State washing their
dirty linen in the Senate, and moved
that the whole subject be laid on the
table, which was agreed to. Butler
walked over to Cameron immediate
lyafterward and said: "Simon, you
ought to send me a bottle of whiskey
for that stroke."
"By jove," said Cameron, "I will
send you a barrel," and he did, For
this'good turn Don Cameron, who
succeeded his father in the Senate,
voted to seat the present Butler when
he was contesting for a seat in the
Senate. Thus the son paid the debt
of his father, and the present Senator
Butler received his seat by a Repub
A Letter from Mr. Ragin.
Pinewcod, S. 0., Dec. 27th, 1894.
Editor The Manning Times:-I am
no5 often seen in public print, but do
now ask space in your paper to in
quire of our honorable body of Rep
resentatives why they treated our
neighborhood with such little respect
in so utterly disregarding a petition
recommending myself as the Demo
cratic choice to fill the trial justice
office to be established at this place,
and again after rejecting my name
with an overwhelming petition signed
by every white man in the expected
precinct, together with the endorse
ment of such men as Capt. D. W.
Brailsford, Messrs. J. S. Cantey, C. R.
Felder, and others, as prominent
men who not only know my politics
but my raising and ability, and rec
ommended by over one hundred of
the best men of both factions. Ig
noring their wishes entirely, and
again after the refusing of my name
by your body, another choice was
made and signed by this the very
people who has the office to support
and like the first was laid aside as be
ing not your body's choice. After
our people giving up in dispair, your
body selects a man and recommends
his name without the consulting of a
single wish of the people, and I foj
one know - ""^ irtci
wrettion.' So far .as I am con
cerned I am perfectly satisfied and
am proud of your accidental choice.
He is a good man and will give satis
faction to all sides and factions, but
just suppose your recommendation
was not the right man, what redress
has a community left with a delega
tion to represent their interest who
by action says you are unfit to choose
for yourselvesland again byignoring a
second request say, I will do your
thinking right or wrong and leave
you no redress.
Now, gentlemen, I am not sore for
not being your choice, and it is an
other proof that politics teaches to
go back on one's political friends is
true. I have always been styled at
Anti but have never deviated from~
true Democracy and always voted a
full ticket at the primaries, and I'm
sorry only now to say I supported the
present delegation who are trying to
make themselves predominent and
will not consult the wishes of the peo
ple. Rcmemnber there was at least
two Tillmanites to one Anti on my
petition, and they are men of sterling
qualities and who I venture to say
that their recollection will live at
least two years. If any of you are
fishing by this act, for votes, for the
constitutional convention, y o u
slipped up. You may do things more
rediculous and I guarantee your
votes wvill show you your mistake in

My dear Mr. MeLaurin:
A little coterie of women, who
with me, have watched the onward
progress of Congress, towards de
stroving the foundation principles of
our tinancal: structure, and, violently
destroying tlie inajestic sovereignty
of this govcrzmnent of its inherent
right to issue its money, with no toc
sin of alarn sounded by the watch
man on the citadels in behalf of the
people, but all our lkc1presentatives
apparently bowing their 'neks to the
yoke of foreign boodlers, and native
shy-locks, were agreeably surprised
and joyously delighted this morning
in reading your noble and patriotic
sentiments in behalf of the govern
We had almost felt that there was
no hope for the people, and nothing
but enslavemuent fcr the masses, and
that Congress ha I been sold out,
body and soul to the money -changers.
But your words of courage and
speech in behalf of the right, has
put new hopes in our hearts, and
brings fresh courage to our spirits.
God bless you for their utterance.
May we hope for others who will
rally to your standard, and be en
abled to overthrow this enemy who is
reaching out for our liberties and
that of comiin ggenerations.
