THE MANNIG TfMES.
LOUIS APPELT, Editor.
Wednesday, April 24, 1895.
Paid to Damn Their Mother.
Judge'Goft of the United States
Circuit Court, at his home in West
Virginia,: last Satuday, issued a tem
poraryinjunction against the Super
visor of Bichiand county, the effect
diwhich if made permanent will be
to declare our registration laws in
valid, and throw open the doors for
every man to vote regardless of for
mer restrictions. A penitentiary con
viet will have as much right to cast
his .ballot as the most honorable citi
zen in this State. It will certainly
be a remarkable condition. All that
the white men of South Carolina
fought -for in 1876, and for which
they risked their property, their lives
and their liberty will be cast aside at
a single stroke of Judge Goffs pen if
his injunction be made permanent and
he is sustained therein.
The white men of this State, suffer
ing under the humiliation of scala
wag and negro domination, bore their
suffering until it could no longer be
endured, rose up in 1876, and with
one united and mighty effort, in the
face of the world and in spite of Fed
eral bayonets, threw off the oppress
ive yoke and scattered their oppress
ors to the four corners-th-6^earth.
.When the shakeslf'oppression were
fnally broen and we were once
mor' a free -people, we naturally,
- with grateful hearts, bestowed high
honors upon many who were conspic
uous in the deliverance, and in order
. that we would never have to uidergo
the trying experiences of the past,
- our possession to the government was
ehlinched by laws which we
thought made the supremacy
of the white man sure. Now
in full control of every depart
ment of our government we go on
from year to year; election after
election is held and the State pros
pers; every industry in the State is
pushed until South Carolina ranks
among the best in Union. Our chos
en leaders cautioned us to keep our
ranks solid, telling us it was our only
hope. They even taught us to look
-upon any man as a traitor who would
desert our ranks, even characterizing
muci as being worse thanithe corrupt
hord.. we had hurled from Ipow
er. Those trusted leaders taught us
to discountenance any man with so
eial ostracism who would raise his
voice to disrupt our political organi
zation. The men whom the people i
placed in power .continued to rule I
until 1890, and we worked along in a
,beaten track. But in 1890 the peo- i
,pie grew restless and desired a
chanige of leaders and from among<
them a plain farmer was chosen. He
~had a hard fight. Every inch of
ground was contested with an obsti
nyacy such as was never before wit-]
nessed in this State. The people tri
smzphed within the regular organiza
tion, but a few of the defeated wouldi
mot have it so; they went on to the
Sgeneral election with an Independent
Scandidate and again the people tri
umphed. The fight did not stop]i
then. The new leaders took charget
..o the government aad from that
time until now a constant fight hasc
been waged against them.
The milcontents of the defeated
faction finding themselves unable to 1
regain the confidence of the people, E
and not being able to come into pow- 11
-er by the machinery they had made E
themseves, are now resorting to, ani 'i
Maonsorting with the enemy to disrupta
..the government which is the only so- t
erity for the white people in this 1i
Among those whom we Jind en- I
deavoring to bring about ruin, are
some of the very men the people p
raised from oet oafunes
hruh the election machinery poetioaflec t
~which exists now, and which they L<
seek to destroy. We find among t<
them some who were loudest in their o
condemnaton when one dared even f
bcriticize. Look at the spectacle! c:
Gieorge W. Dargan, recently a bene- ri
ficiary of the present election ma- fi
ehinery and the people's generosity, 'a
now the leading counsel for Joshua u
E. Wlson, the negro contestant of si
the seat in Congress to which the S
white people elected John L. Mc- "
Laurin. Dargan is endeavoring to take p
away from us our representative and c<
loist upon us a negro. Then we see si
'Charles M. Douglas, who stood up in le
a convention of white men in fr
Columbia, and with eyes up- S
lifted, swdre, that before he ji
would raise his hand to do ought to p
jeopardize white supremacy, he hoped o
"That Almighty God would strike his ti
arm paralyzed at his side." Yet the it
same Douglass appeared before a oj
federal circuit court to besmear his bi
own people and invoke the power of si
'that court to restore the conditions Sl
'which his people would like to efface Ii<
from memory. al
It may be argued that these men Si
are.only acting in a professional ca- w
paeity,but.that would not mitigate the G
offense. It matters not whether a P
.man works injury upon his people Si
for money or of his own free will, the in
fact of his aiding in bringing about or
the miserable condition which must c
come if he succeeds is alone to be if
considered. A hired assassin is no pe
less an asasin. Are the people Iai
thinking? Yes; and those now try- au
ing to wreak their petty vengeance P<
or who are selling their birth
right will be remembered. Their
names will be a reproach
and their presence a stench ha
in the nostrils of white men.
The differences now existing be
tween white men are not of such a an
character but what they can be ad- ex
justed without outside interference, ha
They are anxious to settle their dif- sh
ferences, and the only thing that will fo,
prevent a happy adjustment is the wl
unnatural alliances now being made the
by a few men. Their conduct keeps trc
up a spirit of irritation and suspicion.
The only way to. drive out suspic
ion is for those of the Conservative -
faction who are~opposed to the efforts no
now being made, to bring about dis- or
aster, to join with the Reformers and Ay
tamp it out. It will not do to aim- co
ply say "it's unfortunate," but strong,
active, sincere condemnation will be
the only thing to beget confidence.
If these men succeed, the result
will be chaos. Every business inter
est in the State will be seriously ef
fected. If our election laws are de
clared invalid,every act passed by the
Legislature since the enactment of
the registration laws might fall, the
charters of all corporations may be
declared null and void, and the
prison doors thrown open to those
convicted since the enactment of the
law. In other words, if our election
laws are smashed on the ground of
being unconstitutional, then we have
not had a legal government, and an
illegal government could not make
legal laws. If this is an extreme
view, then what will be the result if
these hairilps only succeed in knocking
dowa the safe-guards which is to in
sure a white man's constitutional con
vention. Our constitutional conven
tion will then be controlled by the
opposite race, whose interests are
not identical with ours. If Mr.
Douglass and his cohorts succeed in
bringing about a condition that will
allow every man to vote without re
striction, the negro would be a fool
indeed, if he did not take advantage
of the power at his command and
control the convention to engraft in
the organic law, intermarziage, social
equality, and the rest of the pet
wishes of that race.
For the sake of the future, for our
children's sake, we hope the schemes
now being resorted to will fail. If
success crowns the efforts of our
hired enemies, and we are -forced to
have our constitutional convention
withaa-nibiestricted ballot, the only
6pe for the white man is to stand
shoulder to shoulder determined to
win regardless of consequences.
Sampson Pope Gets Revenge I
And now comes Sampson Pope,
the most rabid Tillmanite and dis
pensaryite that was ever shaken up
by the agitation of 1890, into Judge
Goffs federal court, in West Vir gnia,
and secures a restraining orcer to
prevent our State officials from en
forcing the dispensary law of- this
State. When Sampson Pope was a
candidate for Governorit was charged
that he was running in the interest
of the whiskey ring; that this con
cern was paying the piper while
Sampson Pope was dansing about
the State. Sampson Pope, however,
denied it, and as no one was present
when the contract was signed, it had
to go so. Now, this same Sampson
Pope has kept up a war on the dis
pensary ever since Governor Evans
"wiped the earth with him." It will
be remembered what an ardent dis
pensary man Sampson Pope was.
When this measure was going
Lhrough the legal machinery, Samp
son Pope was the clerk of the Sen
ite, and he was so precious of the
bill, and so fearful that some "damned
inti would get hold of it and steal
t," that he put it under his shirt and
dlept with it. 0, what a change has
~ome over Sampson Pope ! .Has it
seen brought about by a change of
ieart? or is it some other considera
ion that is prompting Sampson
P~ope? It matters not what it is,
sampson Pope is certainly making
iimself notorious with or without
Governor Evans does not seem to
e at all disturbed by the order ob
ained by Sampson Pope, and from
lis recent utterances, we judge that
he Governor proposes to continue
>usiness at the same old stand with
>ut the permission of Judge Goff or
ampson Pope. If we understand
be restraining order of Judge Goff,
e has, on the simple statement of
ampson Pope, issued an order to al
aw everybody to send liquor into the
tate without molestation, either
rhile the same is in transit, after its
rrival, or while it is in the hands of
bie consignees. That was a nice
.ttle modest request for Sampson
lope to make of Judge Goff, and his ,
[onor was good and kind to gratifyc
amnpson Pope. Of course we do not !
resume to know the law, but it does ~
sem strange to us that a judge of the ?
ideral courts should have the power I
> interfere with the rights of States *
> the extent of saying to the officers i
f the State that they shall not en
rce the laws with which thev are
barged. If Judge Goff has~ the d
ght to stop the officers of the Sae
'om molesting contraband liquor
hile in the hands of consignees, it ,~
ould seem to us he would have the f
uine right to stop officers of the ?

Recollections of Potter's Raid.
DY REV. wM. w. MOOD.
The visit of Lieutenant Waterman of the
Engineer Corps of General rotter's army
to the parsonage at Manning, S. C., on the
afternoon of the 8th April, 1865, was a
benediction to me and mine. He spoke
very cautiously and seemingly under re
straint as he sat upon a trunk at the foot
of my bed.jHe wa so situated as I lay in bed
with fever that I could not see his face all
the time, but when I could he was study
ing me. As he admitted afterward, his
visit was to assure himself and the General
in command that I was not playing the part
of a deceptive in remaining in the town
when every other white man had left at
their approach. I wias charged with having
surrendered to the advanced guard of this
this army, composed largely of negroes,
and then suddenly shooting down from
his saddle my capturer, and of escaping
down the back street and then slipping in
to bed sick. In the interview with this
officer he probed me closely with questions,
and finally told me that all the darkies
upon the street gave me a good name. I
am persuaded that he was fully satisfied
that this shooting down of the guard was
the act of a Confederate (C. H. Jones) sent
down from Sumter. I cannot repeat in this
paper tho kindness of this officer. He did
all in his power to relieve ine and mine of
our alarm and terror, even insisting on us
if it were possible, getting away from the
town, assuring me that the entire army was
enraged. I was to be severely punislid.
and that the General had caught
the contagion. I had several questions to
ask him after the interview had proceeded,
all of which he readily answered but one,
and to this he said: "You know, Mr. M.,
I am your enemy, and you could not ex
pect me to tell you." (I can't tell my read
ers what this question was. It will tell too
plainly how simple I was in asking it.)
During this memorable interview, Iremem
bered he said his name was Waterman;
that he was of the Engineer Corps; that his
people were Methodists, and something
about Calfornia. And now that the army
was marching (early Sunday, April 9, 1865,)
out of the town we remembered his kind
ness and regretted that we had not asked
him his address. The desire to find him,
to communicate with him, to know more of
him, increased as the years rolled on. I
could not think, with all my thinking, how
to begin to find him. But he was certain
ly upon my mind.
In August, 1871, my train (Wilmington,
Columbia and Augusta) switched off at
Sumter for the mail train to pass. There
were three finely-dressed gentlemen and
myself as passengers, and we all walked to
the rear of the coach. Then we saw a very
neatly dressed colored girl making rapid
strides to where we stood. To my suprise,
when within speaking distance, she said:
"Ah, Mr. M., I am so glad to ,ee you.
The colored people at the depot told me it
was you." "I don't know you." "I am
Mary's sister." "Not Mary Harvin who
nursed for us in Manning?" "Yes, sir;
and Mary will be so glad to know I saw
you." I had much to say to her and but a
little time to say it in. But shaking her
hand, I sent messages to Mary that she had
never been forgotton by us. and her kind
ness during the night of "Potter's raid"
was often referred to; that if at any time
I could serve her to inform me in Columbia,
and with many more words our train moved
off, leaving her in tears. The three strang
ers had heard every word I had said, and
they bad had something to say, of which I
took no notice.
When reseated in the coach oneo f them
came to me and said: "You are a religious
man?" Yon'd so suppose from what I said
to that young women. "We all regret the
remark made; we are gentlemen, and it
was made thoughtlessly." "The least said
about it the better," I remarked. "It has
not annoyed ite, though I regret you said
it." "You are a minister of the Gospel?"
"Suppose I am?" "So we have all conclud
ed; and she seemed to be much affected at
what you said to her." He then sat down,
remarking, "I don't wish to intrude myself
upon you, but I'd like to talk with you."
replied: "I have-no objection, an d will
::heerfully give you any imformation I can."
"You are a South Carolinian, and there is
t great interest to me in every word you
rave said to that young women." (He
heed not have told me; this was ver'y evi
]ent.) "You don't seem to know her, but
you do her sister you call Mary; who is
alary?'' I told him she had nursed for me
n s.anning, a town some twenty miles be
ow. ~ "But you were very particular in
hanking her for her kindness the night
'of P'otter's raid. What was Potter's raid?"
'Have; you ever seen Sberman's sentinels?"
'Oh, yes, often." "Well, sir, the lonely
:himneys standing near the depot at sum
er are Potter's sentinels. He raided
birough the lower part of the State and
rith his well appointed army of' negroes
te reached this poiwt and was destroying
verything before him when a flag of truce
eachea him on Santeo River, .19th April,
35,) telling Potter that General Lee had
urrendered ten days ago." He asked me
or my address. I wrote it in his memor
andum book; his interest evidently lncre
sing in all I told him. I can't in this give
11 this interview. He had many, very L
2any questions to ask. It ,'as warm and j
ery dusty, and being wearied, I wished to y
ease my conversation, and remarked: "I'd t,
e so pleased to find General Potter's ad
ress." "Why? What interest can you a
ave in him? He injured you all he,could." a
'I only want to find him, so as in this way ti
may find the address of one of his officers a
'ho was afriend to me and mine during a
ist fearful night." "Yes, I have written 'I
~Washington and in every other direction I
here I thought there was the least pros. g
ect of finding him. General Potter's ad- ti
ress may tell me all I want" And thus we p
Llked, he certaintly greatly interested, and n
ow, I can't tell why, but I felt sure I was t<
siking to General Potter, and, leaning to- f<
ards him and shaking my finger in his f:
Lee, I said with emphasis: "You are Gen- c<
ral Potter." He was silent as he looked ti
ito my eyes, and I repeated, "You are n
~eneral Potter." "Do you really believe tI
am General Potter?" and looking more it
triously than before said: "You have p
me very near fnding him. You could vi
ardly have come nearer and n t have si
und him. I am not General Potter, but al
am his next door neighbor; only our fc
naces separate our homes, and it is re
Larkable that you should have taken me d
ir Potter. Come, take out you note blook, ec
r. M., and write (I did so) "General Ed. la
Potter, Madison, New Jersey." Now, e
ke my address, B. W. Burnett. Now, se
Er. M., when you write tell hinm exactly b:
w you obtained his address. Tell him p
I of this interview, but don't refer to any tl
the shadows of that raid. Give him all oi
Le light. If he wants the shadows he'll tU
k for them."' "Will he reply to the re- ni
iest?" "Oh, yes; there is no reason why bi
should not. Write kindly to him; tell
m emphatically what you want to know G
Lieutenant Waterman, and I hope you'll E
vn hear from him, and thus learn of W., pi
ho was so kind to you."' He expressed ra
e greatest pleasure at having met nie and cc
e information 1 had given him. He ex. T]
oded, however, at the remark I had made th
at both Lieutenant Waterman and all the h(
hers of General Potter"; army had said
e General-was a Baptist preacher. I take in
he knew, and my conclusion was that or
mneral Potter was not a preacher. w
I was impatient after parting with Mr. dc
to reach Columbia, an d when in my qt
am that nmght, wrote very kindly and de
seechingly to General Potter for all in- in
rn~lation he could give me of Lieutenant bc
aterman. I could not have been more at

Ladies Don't Wear Gallowses.
Editor The Manning Times:-I
scarcely know what to write in these
dull times for your most excellent
and highly appreciated paper.
La Grippe and woman's sufferage
are floating round from place to
place. The one has no mercy on the
human constitution, while the other
seems to have very little upon the
peace and quiet of thisj country.
You well know, that I am one among
the very last men who would hurt
feelings, or even seem to be disrespet
ful. Men in politics, in all ages, have
created quite too much trouble, with
out bringing women upon the scene
of public action. I tell you, a wom
en is a go ahead somebody. Lord
Byron says: "When women wills,
she wills, and when she won't, she
won't, and that's an end of it."
Within the domestic sphere and
those of religion and morals, she is
so useful, and so charmingly graceful
in her every motion. Why then
change her gentle nature, by making
it masculine alike that of man. Such
an unnatural change of woman's
nature, is not only removing her from
the spheres in which she alone should
act, but it is tantamount to blowing
out the light of her influence, which
glitters in the dark troubled sky of
our country. Her prayers, sighs
and tears, would do much more good
at any time, than her tongue upon
the public rostrum. Why should
she make an artificial man of her
self. If God had intended that
she should be thus changed, we
would have found her acting with
man in public matters, in all ages
and times. But history does not
furnish such action on her part. It
does not surprise me at all, to see men
turn themselves into contemptible
cranks, but I marvel much, that our
gentle and noble women, should be
willing to be converted into a mascu
line condition, so quite beneath that
given to them by their God. Make
masculines of our women, and we
take away from the men thereby, a
most wholesome and controlling in
fluence. I find this passage in the
Bible: "Let the women learn silence
with all subjection. But I suffer
not a women to teach, nor to usurp
authoritry over man but to be in
silence." Women can do no good
whatever in politics. Men are bad
enough to each other, without hav
ing them made more so, by the mis
guided influence of women. Both
the Bible and her nature, are against
her unnatural ambition.

Editor The Manning Times:-I read with
iuch interest the dialogue between Silas
ones and his son in your paper. Now I
'ould also like to present a few thoughts
r your rea lers to ponder over:
'rhe question whether one generation of i
nhas a right to bind another seems ,)
ever to have been started, yet it is a ques- ,
on of such consequence as not only to t
terit decision, but place armong thu funda
tental principles of every governinent.
'hat no such obligation canf be transmitted ~
think capable of proof. I set out on this
round, that earth belongs in usufruct to
ite living; that the dead have neither
owers nor rights over it.. No man can by
atural right oblige the lands he oenpied
the payment of debts contracted by him,
>r if he could he might eat up the usu- t
-ct of the earth for several generations to f
>me, and then the earth would belong to t
te dead. 'ihe conclusion, then, is that
either the representatives of a nation, nor
te whole nation itself assembled, can val
ly engage debts beyond what they may b
iy in their own time." Jefferson's works,
l. 3, page 103. In writing to Mladison, ~
moe volume, page 105, he co. es a long -
id interesting letter on this subje.ct in the E1
llo wing-language: -
"Turn this subject in your mind, my
mar sir, and particularly tbat power as to
intracting debts. At first blush it may be
ughed at as the dream of a theorist, but d
:amination will prove it to be solid and
.lutary. It would furnish a fine preaim- f
e to our tirst law for appropriating our
abolic reven ue, and it would exclude at the
reshold of our new govern'nent the ruin- o
is and contagious errors of this quarter of 0
e globe, which have armed despots with
eans which nature does not sanction for
nding his fellow-men."
Compare these ulterances with the act of g
rover Cleveland hob-nobbing with an ic
iglish syndicate to bind this nation to d
y a debt thirty year:; nence without war
nt of law, and a Democratic Congress too W
wardly to lilt a hand to prevent it. a

"How much did Grover Cleveland make
the last bond deal ?" is a question being qi
etly asked all around the country, and si

ubt in the minds of those asking the tI
estion as to their belief that the -Presi- th
nt of the United States actually shared
the profits of the syndicate who took the

a gain of over eighty millions of dollars.
hether Grover Cleveland had any share bt

t the circumstances attending the nego- so

oir immediate sale at a very much higher
amiumn, can have no other effect than to St
ye the suspicion in the minds of many "

THE FIGHT AGAINST FREE COIBGE,
The President DesperateIy In Earnz. t nd
Authorizes His TVmily to Puzsh the
Crusade-All ;ove-rnment Em
ployes Expected to Aid.
WASHINGTON, April 2:.--A stron;; and
vigoroun fight against the free andi un
limited coinage of silver independent
of international agreement is to bc
made by the administration. With that
end in view officers in the varions ex
ecutive departments- appointed nnder
the present administration are being
urged to organize systenatically for
the purpose of conducting the contest
along the lines as laid down in the
president's message. Many of the
higher officials who enjoy reputations
at home as stump speakers will proba
bly take to the field early in the sumi
mer and others are even now engaged
in writing letters to their Iceal papers
or personal friends, impressing upon
them the importance of sustaining the
administration in the position it has
outlined. Federal otlicers in the sev
eral states will be organized as a nu
cleus about which all who uphold the
administration or rather who are op
posed to the free and unlimited coin
age of silver will be expected to rally.
Recipients of Palrona;|e Must Act.
There are nearly 200,000 government
officers, postmasters, internal revenue
officers. customs offleers, district attor
neys and innumerable contractors seat
tered throughout the country. These
will be expected to do the aggressive
fighting in the field and will be amply
furnished with documents and all n
essary sinews of war from Washington.
Nearly all the cabinet oflicers will
take the stump for en_- or re
speeches. Secretary Carlisle will cer
tainly make two or more speeeh:s in
the Kentucky campaign. Secretary
Morton will deliver an addre.vs in Chi
cago and perhaps one in St. Loui:;.
Secretary Herbert and Congres.nan
Clarke will probably .seak in Alabama.
Postmaster General Wilson is being
urged to go west and speak in Illinois
and Indiana and may and time to do so
late in the summer.
Cleveland Th.rou:;Tily in Earnest.
The president is represented as being
thoroughly in earnest in the propo.sed
crusade against free and unlaited
coinage of silver, and will leave no
stone unturned to prevent the free sil
ver sentiment from gaining headway
and to crush it out if possible. As tariff
reform was the test of party fealty in
his campaign, for the presideutial noin
ination, active support of his demand
for the repeal of the Sherman purchas
ing clause and test of party 1ealty in
1894, so in 1895 the test of party fealty
will be uncompromising opposition to
the free and unlimited coinage of sil
ver by the United States independent
of international agreement. Perfected
state organizations with this end in
view are now being formed and these
organizations will be extended to the
counties and even into the districts.
