Dargan Advocates a Black Draught!
There are some people who be
lieve Colonel J. J. Dargan is doing
what he honestly thinks is right, but
that he is mentally off his base. We
were among those who believed that
way, but from his recent utterances
we are forced to believe there is
"method in his madness," and our
reason is that it is an almost con
ceded fact the Republican party will
. succeed to the national government.
Now, the eloquent Colonel has his
weather eye open to a good snug
berth from that party, and has as
samed a leadership for a class of
people who have no State berths to
bestow ; but, if the Republican
party gets control of national affairs,
their leaders are most sure to be
The history of political parties
show that the most successful to se
cure good positions are those who
make themselves conspicuously ob
noxious to the vanquished party, and
this is what Colonel Dargan appears
to be doing. In his speech to the
negroes at Charleston last week, if
the News and Courier reports him
correctly, he delightel his hearers
with saying a number of things
which he knew were very distasteful
to his own race, and finally capped
the climax with the following re
markable statement :
"Colonel Dargan said that his house was
for people of such a color as he preferred,
and in that every man had a right to be
judge. It was low and contemptible, how
ever, he said, for white men to talk of be
ing superior to negroes. True nobility of
soul seeks to elevate and not pull down.
He then quoted a passage of Tennyson's,
transposing the lines afterward to read
'Kind hearts are better than white skins.'
Continuing, Colonel Dargan said: 'I ex
sppet to be frowned on for going to the col
A few years ago people from
abroad came to this State and
preached a similar doctrine, the re
sult being, that for years the heel of
oppression was on the necks of our
People. South Carolina was despised,
and blushes would mantle the cheeks
to acknowledge as hailing from this
State. It was dangerous for our
women to travel on the streets or
highways, lest they would be insulted
by some negro who had been taught
to believe the way to show their
freedom was to be as obnoxious
as possible to the white race. But
why go on to revive the old mem
ories? Suffice it to say that our
people preferred prisons-yes, death
-to a, continuance of such a horrible
state of affirs, and, with a remark
able heroism-such as no people ever
before displayed-rose and crushed
the hydra-headed monster. They
look upon the past as a horrible
nightmare, and woe be unto the man
or set of men who again attempts to
force that old condition upon us.
Colonel Dargan feels that it is
~contemptible for white men
f being superior to negroes,"
let him go to some place where such
thoughts are palatable. The white
people will talk of being superior to
negroes, and will maintain their su
periority gt whatever cost. The fears
that we entertain of Colonel Dargan
in inculcating such doctrine into the
mind of the negro is that the poor
deluded being will bring trouble to
himself, and when he looks for his
guiding star it will have vanished.
There is no use mincing words. The
white people of this State are going
to rule it, and all this gust of wind
to the galleries to catch the applause
of , the Northern people-that sym
patmaiz with the negro of the South
for his vote-can not prevent it.
If Colonel Dargan is mad-he should
be looked after, because his con
duct is dangerous to himself and to
the community at large. The State
provides an institution for such un
fortunates. But, if he is not mad
and is endeavoring to arouse the
base prejudices of the negroes that
he may profit thereby', he should be
W~eKiave no confidence in the sin
ceiy of this man, for we well re
member his outburst of indignation
when a certain newspaper published
in his town permitted a colored
preacher to write over his own signa
ture in. its columns. Dargan fairly
tore his hair out by the roots in de
nouncing the proprietor of that
paper, and now he comes forward
and appeals to the colored race to
make him their Moses. We also re
member his attitude towards the
negro in 1876. Why, this man who
now says it is low and contemptible
for white men to talk of being su
perior to the negroes was so ag
gressively violent that his friends had
fears of the results.
The negro to-day is not what he
was when the carpet-baggers and
snallawags beguiled him into their
confidence. He has tbrough a white
man's government become educated,
and Colonel D)argan-or any other
man--need not nurse the idea that
if the negroes again control the bal
lot in this State that they will be
foolish enough to intrust that power
to any but their own race. They
trusted white men cnce who were
enemies to their own race, and they
reaped a bitter result therefrom.
They have learned from 'sad experi
ence that the white man takes the
turkey and the negro gets the buz
zard every time ; and now, if the
turkey should by chance come the
negroes' way, and they can hold him,
they will play 'the game of "turn
about is fair play," and give the
white man the buzzard to gnaw sure
and cer tain.
The injunction or restraining order
issued by Judge Goff has created a
sensation all over the Union, and the
prominent dailies are filled with ed
itorials questioning Judge Goffs
right in the premises. They regar-d
the interference as dangerous to
"States' Rights" doctrine, and some
of them claim that if he persists in
his course he will precipitate civil
war. Governor Evans is going right
aloner with his duties and the State
constables are seizing liquors just as
if no order hiad been signed. Just
how it will terminate is hard to fore
see, but one thing is certain, that the
people of this State intend to have a
constitutional convention and that
the white people intend to control it.
Another thing is certain,. and that is,
the white men of South Carolina will
have to lay aside petty spite and go
earnestly to work to make the con
vention a success.
Manning Twists Columbia's Tail.
The announcement of the citizens
of this town having entered the race
for the Epworth Orphanage has
aroused the city of Columbia and has
caused the Columbia Register to
sound a tocsin of alarm. This es
teemed contemp:rary, after stating
the amount already subscribed by
our citizens, in a leading editorial
'Manning is regarded as one of the least
formidable of Columbia's competitors for
the Orphanage, and what Manning has al
ready done ought to show Columbians
that if they want to secure the Orphanage
they will have to go down deep in their
pockets. The committee which has been
soliciting subscriptions has done exceed
ingly 'well, but more is needed to make it
certain that Columbia will distance her
Columbia, on account of its size,
may regard Manning as not being a
formidable competitor for this insti
tution, but if it will consider the
beauty and health of our town, be
sides the make-up of its society and
the broad and liberal spirit of our
citizens, it will come to the con
clusion that Manning is a strong
rival for such an institution. It
should be located where the people
are not hide-bound in prejudice and
conceit. In all matters our people
are liberal; they accord to every
man an honest motive until the con
trary is shown. They do not belittle
themselves by constantly sneering at
those whom the majority love and
honor. They do not mix politics
with business, and are always ready
and willing to invite and aid in a
worthv cause. Columbia, on the
other hand-that is, if some of the
editorial utterances in the State are
to be taken as an indication of the
sentiment-is opposed to any and
every thing which can not be con
trolled bya select repudiated few.
A choral society can not give an
entertainment but what its effect is
ruined by slurs being thrown at the
men whom the people have entrusted
with leadership. When a location
for a charitable institution is being
looked for, those in charge of the
work would like to find a community
where the people do not allow petty
prejudices to govern them in society
and business, and in Manning they
will find the place they want. The
people of Manning want the Ep
worth Orphanage, and if, besides
other advantages, more money is
needed, it can be obtained.
It is pure, unadulterated hypocra
cy for a man to say that he is en
deavoring to tear up our election
laws because it is a patriotic duty.
Caldwell, who is Pope's associate,
sets up such a claim and points to his
war record to prove himself a patriot.
Longstreet was a gallant soldier and
won laurels on fields of carnage.
Mahone was another, but when the
war ended and the white people of
the South were shackled and op
pressed, how long did these men
stand by their people ? Did they;
not desert them and go over to the
enemy ? We have no doubt that
Caldwell did do his duty in the war
thousands of others did, also-but
because he did his duty once is no
reason why he should be licensed to
plunge a traitorous blade into the
hearts of his people now, and any
man who will sell his ability, to bring
ruin upon the people that once hon
red him is a traitor of the deepest

NEW ZION LETIER.
ConditIon of Crops - Closing Exercises
of the Pine Grove Academy.
Nriw Ziox, S. C., April 29. 1895.
Editor Manning Times:-I write you the
current news of this vicinity. Tobacco
planting seems to be all the go here ; can
count twenty-five new barns in course of
erection in an area of five miles. The
plant bed& are backward on account of the
severe winter and late spring, but the
plaots look w'ell if small. We will have
ample facilities to handle Our tobacco
next fall, as there are two warehouses in
Florence, two in Darlington, one in Sumter
rand one in Timmonsville. The more the
merrier, as competition will enhance the
price of tobacco.

Your scribe a short while ago had the
pleasure of attending at the Pine Grove
Methodist Church the closing exercises of
the Pine Grove Academy, under the man
agement of that competent and efficient
instructor, the Rev. Ralston E. Smith, and
is able assistant, Miss Laura Turbeville,
who has been quite recently happily
married to Mr. Walter Castine. The
cademy had a very large attendance of
scholars, and the patrons were delighted
with the manner in which it was con
:ucted and the progress their children
made in their studies, as was attested by
the praises bestowed upon Mr. Smith and
is charming assistant on all sides. The
programme consisted of dialogues and
declamations by the pupils, and each and
every one of them-both teachers and
scholars-acquitted themselves to the
entire satisfaction of the large and de
lighted audience present. I do not wish
to draw invidious comparisons, but I can
not refrain from saying that the valedictori
an acquitted himself in an able manner and
that the young man will yet make his
mark. Then came the dinner, and oh ! ye
Gods! it was just such a one that the
wives of the Turbevilles, Greens, Gambles
and others of these "good folks" know
how to get up. There are two things for
which salem is famous-good dinners and
pretty girls. Where I am known it is per
haps unnecessary for me to say that I did
ample justice to the savory viands, and in
this respect I am always willing to accord
justice to the good things of life by ap
propriating a goodly share to my own use
and behoof. After this bountiful repast
had been served the audience was treated
to eloquent discourses on appropriate
subjects by the Rev. Mr. Wright, the
Methodist muinister in charge of this cir
cit, and the Rtev. Mr. Tenney, the pastor
>f Bethel Baptist Church, after which
your scribe wended his way homeward,
"too full for utterance" and with many
misgivings for his physical ailments on
the morrow. Happily, I got there all the
Recollections of Potter's Raid.
BY REV. W. W. M)oD.
Having so unexpectedly and under such
strange surroundings found General Pot
ter's address, I felt sure now that I'd ob
tain Lieutenant Waterman's, who had
acted as a brother toward me and mine the
night this negro army spent in Manning,
April 8, 1865.
General Potter, however, did not reply,
and, alter waiting several wecks, I wrote
again, even more urgently than before,
and then after some tie wiote ain.
But I heard nothing from him. I could do
no more. I remember about that time on
entering my Sunday-school room (Marion
street, Columbia.) that our watchful
superintendent, John A. Elkins, said to
me: "Come, speak to several new scholar"
-and this always gave him the greatest
pleasure. "Who are they ?' "T'he Water
man sisters, relatives of Gav. It. K. Scott,
and one of the Governor's children." Speak
ing to them I told them "I'd call to see
their parents the next day." My purpose,
too, was to, if possible, find out through
these something about my friend Water
man. Mrs. Waterman and a lady relative
received me very kindly and expressed
much pleasure at the reception of the
children at the Sunday- school, and re
quested me to call on her brother, the
Governor. I did not hesitate to make in
quiry for my friend, telling them some
thing of the circumstances. It interest.d
them, but I could learn nothing. Mrs.
Waterman said "she was from the North
west, and had no near relative in the
United States army." There were, how
ever, many questions, very many, asked
by them, and in the course of the con
versation they asked if all the ofiicers in
this negro army of General P.'s were
negroes. '-No; all the commissioned were
white but one ; he was a bight mulatto
from Massachusetts." "Did you see him ?"
"Not while General P.'s army was in my
town, but I see him very frequently on the
streets, and he is now a member of the
State Senate." It was further developed
that they knew him and he was a guest at
their home. This was a revelition to me.
But I can't allow my pen to dwell upon
this mulatto Lieutenant of Potter's army,
and the part he has taken in the politics
of South Carolina.
It was now several months since I had
irst written to General Potter, and I de
spaired of hearing from him. I certainly,
if I had had tho means, would have gone
to him. Meeting Mr. C, H. Baldwin ou
the street I asked him "if he'd serve me?"
"Yes, Mr. M., I am willing to serve you in
any way I can-" I told him then-going
up into his office-in what way : that per
haps he might secure a reply from General
Potter, giving him the particulars. "This
reminds me, Mr. M., of when this city was
in the hands of General Sherman, and that
one of his army corps Generals took pos
session of my dwelling svith his staff, and
that before retiring from Columbia he
asked to see Mrs. Baldwin, and told her
that he could not consent to occupy her
elegant home without reimbursing her,
and he left fifty dollars of shining gold.
On my return home I resolveti on return
ing it and to thank him for the protection
he had given Mrs. B. and the child-ren. It
cost me some trouble to find him, having
to go to Washington and search the army
records ; but, finding him, 1 went to his
city, to his street, and to his house. I rang
the bell, was invited into his parlor, and
there I thanked him, and returned him the
same gold he had left with my wife. Iknow
something of your feelings, and appreciate
my being called on to assist you in finding
this officer. I will write at once to General
Potter, and if in a reasonable time he does
not reply, I'll go to his town and to his
house." He assured me that he'd do
everything he could for me in finding W.
In the meantime my appointment from
the conference was at Cheraw, and I had
heard nothing from 'General Potter. I
gave it all up, though I could never forget
To my great surprise and pleasure I re
ceived from Mr. Baldwin a letter dated
April 17, 1872, inclosing a letter from Gen
eral Potter. It was dated February 12,
1872, saying that he had not yet ascer
tained the address of Lieutenant WVater
man. "It is extremely difficult to find the
residences of officers, as they are so
widely scattered. I have not in a long
time met Major Place. who commanded
the detachment of engineers at the time
you refer to. I may possibly succeed in
securing a hearing from Colonel Hale,
who commanded the regiment. If I should
do so, and if Colonel Hale knows of
Lieutenant Waterman, I will at once let
you be informed. Please make my excuse
to your friend for not having answered his
letter. The cause was my inability to give
him the desired information. Yours truly,
Edward B. Potter -"
There was sonme satisfaction in receiving
this letter, and though it gave me two
names of prominent oflicers of his army,
it did not give their address, and while I
was no nearer finding W., yet somehow it
intensified my desire to find himi.
I saw in the Charleston News. and
Courier, from one of its correspondents at
Washington, a very full notice of "Gen
eral Marcus J. Wright, Agent for War De
partment. Publication Office War Thcords
1861-65.|' The though't struck me to write
to General W~right. From him I receivea
promptly the followinit : " War Depart
ment. Publication Office War Records
1861-65," March 29, 1880. (My readers
will observe that it was no0w more than
eight years since I had heard from Gcneral
Potter.) My Dear sir; Your letter of the
26th instant reached me just on the eve of
my departure on a trip of twenty days on
business. I will be here by the 25th of
April~and if you will write to me then fully in
regard to the matter you are so anxious to
hear about, I will take great pleasure in
giving you such aid as I can. V'ery truly,
Marcus J. Wright.
I wrote then fully to him ; his letter, so
very kind, leading me to believe he'd as
sist me in finding my friend, though as I
remembered him, not by any means a
robust man, sitting on that trunk at the
foot of my bed, I feared in these years
he may have passed away, perhaps was
killed the next day after we parted at the
fight at Dingle's Mill. a short distance from
the town of Sumter, S. C.
The reply to this came promptly : "Rtev.

TO PROTECT OUR INTERESTS.
United States Gun Boat's Ordered to Pro
ceed to Nicaraguan Porta.
WASHINGTON, April 30. -After several
conferences yesterday with Secretary
Gresham and Secretary Herbert, the
secretary of the navy sent dispatches
to commanders of the United States
gunboats, Alert and the Atlanta, di
recting them to proceed without delay
to San Juan del Sur, and Greytown,
Nicaragua, respectively. The Alert is
at Panama and it will take her about a
day and a half to reach San Juan del
Sur, which is the cable station nearest
Corinto, situated about 100 miles below
that port. The Atlanta is at Key West,
Fla., and can make the distance of 750
miles from that place to Greytown in
two and a half days. When Secretary
Herbert was asked the significance of
these orders, he answered promptly as
The newspapers say that a revolution is
probable in Nicaragua. They state that the
people are very much dissatified with the
course of the government and are likely to at
tempt to overthrow it. In order to protect the
interests of American citizens, their lives and
property, and following the policy always pur
sued in such centingencies, I have ordered the
Alert to San Juan del Sur. and the Atlanta to
Greytown. In addition to these vessels, the
Montgomery, now at Mobile, will sail on May
7th for Greytown, conveying the Nicaraguan
canal commission to that place. The Monte
rey, which has sailed for Panama, will remain
at Panama for the present. With two United
States ships on one side of Nicaragua and one
ship on the other side, it is plain that Ameri
can interests will be well protected if the ru
mored revolution should take place."

About Twenty Per Cent Have Failed to
Make Income Tax Returns.
-WASHINGTON, April 26.-Revised cal
culations indicate that about '20 per
cent of the persons subject to the in
come tax have failed to make the re
turn prescribed by the law. -The first
estimate placed the number of delin
quents at about 10 per cent. Each day
adds to the difficulties and perplexities
in- the enforcement of the emusculated
statute. Although secrecy is properly
observed by the officials in regard to
individual eases, it is generally under
stood that many of the wealthiest men
in the country have ignored the law
completely. This is said to be particu
larly the case with several well-known
millionaires, whose incomes are deriv
ed mainly from rents. The Vanderbilts
are classed in this category. and sever

and this city are said to have failed to

The Georgia Southern Railroad rroperty

MAcoN, Ga., April 30.-The sale of
the Georgia Southern railroad property
was confirmed yesterday. The $3,000,
000 required by decree has been paid
into court. The first mortgage bond
holders are the purchasers. The ex
penses accrued are to be taken out of
the $3,000,000 price. No prior obliga

the Southern Passenger association is
of no effect and the purchasers go into

untrammelled as if it were entirely a

THE EVICTIONS AT PULLMAN.
Without Work and Behind in Rent, the
Old Workmen Must Go.
CifcAGo, April 29.-One hundred and
fifty families at Pullman, who have
paid no rent to the Pullman company|
since the beginning of the great strike,
have been served with notices of evic
tion. .All of the heads of these fami
lies were employed in the shops before
the strike, but none of them was able
to get back. The Pullman officials say
there is no "black list," but by an odd
oincidence certain men are invariably
told that there is no work for them,
while other men are taken on even
while the foreman is asserting that no
rore help is needed. The man who is
blamed for this is Manager Middleton.
The sufferers believe that Mr.'Pullman
is ignorant of their condition.

W HIAT 0F _HIS A 0TION
Will Justice Jackson's Opinion
Affect Harrison's Nomination ?
TilE PENDING INCOME TAX DECISION.
Why the Friends of the E%-P're.adtnt op
pose the Ioaring Before tho Tea
nessee Jurist-Former Oppo
sition to Him Recalled.
WASImINGToo, April :. -The an
nouncement that Mr. Ju.stice .jaekson
will sit with his associates of the su
preme court in the rehearing of the
income tax case develops the fact that
his opinion in the ease will possess an
interest for the politicians beyond the
questions immediately involved. It
may cut a figure in the contest-grow
ing livelier now every day-for the re
publican nomination for the presi
Judge Jackalpm'.i A)p)oiltlnCt.
Mention was made recerntlv of the
protest entered b a number of repub
lican leaders agair.st the appointment
of Judge Jackson by President liarri
son. They took the groundi and in
sisted that the oflice should go to some
member of their own party. It could
only be in this way. they contended,
that the appointment could be fully
guaranteed. The party would be held
responsible, and the party, therefore.
should fill the oiliee. 'T'here was no
criticism of Judge Jackson in any
wise affecting his professional equip
ment. It was contened that he was a
good man and a good lawyer. But, be
inga democrat of thorough trairing
and deep conviction, he must be ex
pected to take a democratic view of
public questions in general.
There would be a risk in this. these
republican leaders said. They earn
eastly advised the appointment of a
republican-one whose training had
imbued him with. convictions fromt the
President IHarrison. putting r.1 Cf
these soggestions aside, stolod upon the
simple proposition that politics .ust
not be permitted to obtrude in matters
respecting the bench, so he -elected
Judge Jackson, a democrat. to .ucee d
Judge Lamar, a democrat.
The Present Interest1::-.; L:Lnts.
There has now arisen one of those
very interesting and uiportant roints
upon which po'itical parties. divide.
The republican party. as a party. is
against the income tax. T demo
cratic party, as a party. is for the tax.
The supreme court, without Judre
Jackson, is evenly divided on the
question of the constitutionalty vf the
law. Judge Jackson is called upon to
cast the deciaing vote. The laav ould
stand without his vote. but public
sentimeut demands a majority -:ote of
the court one way or the ether. If
Judge Jackson is in favor of the tax
republican leaders who opposed his ap
pointment will, it is predicted. at once
revive the fact of their opposition and
insist that had their advice been taken
and a good sound republican selected
the tax would have been overthrown.
These men are all anti-Harrison men
as -respects next year's presidential
nominations of their party. The Jack
son appointment was one of many to
which they objected. They are organ
i-zing to oppose him again should the
movement in his behalf for next year
take formidable shape, and every cir
cumstance susceptible of use against
him is being tabulated and filed away.
But thiere is also the other side of the
problem. It Judge Jackson decides
against the tax it will be equally in the
power of the Harrison men to claim for
their favorite a share in the felicitation
that will follow in republican circles.
-Real situation Not Affected.
Nothing, of course, in all this will in
anywise affect the real situation.
Judge Jackson will pass upoa the ques
tion without regard to politics, or the
source from which his olicial comm~iis
'sion came. Nor does the fact tha t he
is a democrat signiff. Juadge Harlan,
who is a staunch republican. verted to
'uphold the law, while JTudge Field, who
is a democrat, gave the law one of the
most resounding blo-.s ever h:ard ini
the supreme court chamber. l'elities
are undoubtedly barred in the- court on
the income tax proposition.
