THE MANNING TIMES.
LOUIS APPELT, Editor.
Wednesday, June 12, 1S95.
Goff's Infamy Stamped Out.
The United States Court of Ap
peals, composed of Chief Justice
Fuller, Judges Hughes and Seymour,
filed their decision in the registration
cases yesterday. This Court after re
viewing Judge Goff's decision at Co
luimbia decided that a court of equity
has no jurisdiction in matters politi
cal, and they dissolved Goff's infa
mous injunction. The effect of the
decision is that every man must be
provided with a registration certifi
cate before he can vote just as the
laws of South Carolina have required
ever since 1882. This will knock into
a cocked hat any attempt at an ap
peal to the negro, and the supremacy
of the white man is assured. As
usual, when there is pending a mat
ter of importance to the people, the
Times will always be among the first
to hear the result. The decision was
rendered yesterday afternoon at
three o'clock in Richmond, and one
hour later the Times received the

We have before us a copy of "The
Woman's Edition of the State," and
it is without a doubt an excellent
piece of journalism. A female orator
recently said that "women have
made a success in every occupation
of life except painting church
steeples." This edition of the State
proves that South Carolina has with
in her borders female journalists
second to none in the United States.
Senator Tillman, Governor Evans,
and a number of our Congressmen
are attending the silver convention
in Memphis. It is expected that this
convention will electrify the political
world, and from it will emanate one
of the greatest educational cam
paigns ever had in the history of the
United States. We hope these
statesmen can devise some plan which
will save our merchants from bank
ruptcy and our farmers and laborers
A few days ago we heard a gentle
man, who is a Conservative, discuss
ing the Hampton letter, and he said:
"I have no harsh words for Hamp
ton, but I must say his letter is
wrong, and if any other man had
written that letter, I would not

then I must renounce them and go
with people who will stand by white
men with or without office."
General R. R. Hemphill, editor of
the Abbeville Medium, is the most
fortunate and to be the most envied
man in the State. His paper is mag
nificently edited on the local side
the most important side of a news
paper-and the local editor is one of
the General's charming daughters.
For some time we have watched the
local columns of the Medium, and
the ability displayed by this lady
editor shows her to be one who
knows a news item when she sees it,
and that she must go about with a
drag-net to catch all the particles of
news matter. We know several lazy
bachelor editors, and would advise
them to go to Abbeville for a little
recreation. It might turn out to be
a good venture.
The financial problem is a nut that
is hard to .crack. The reader may
scan all the literature sent out by
the advocates of what is denom
inated by them as "sound money,"
and lie becomes convinced that the
country will go to the bow-wows if
the sound-money policy is not
adopted. Then let the same reader
take up "Coin's Financial School"
and the other work on finance by
Harvey, and his mind turns a double
somersault and he shouts for free
and unlimited coinage of silver at a
ratio of 16 to 1. Both sides of this
problem have strong arguments in
their favor, and it is beyond the
reach of an ordinary mind to grasp
the true merit of either side. We
are arrayed on the silver side-not
that we have mastered the question
at all, but from the fact that the
bankers and millionaires, who can
e~imtrol the money are fighting
against cheap or silver money, con
vinces us that a gold standard is in
the interest of a class who are rich
and growing richer, and against the
masses, who arevpoor and growing
poorer. Another thing is that since
silver was given a death-blow by the
repeal of the purchasing clause of
the Sherman act the producing

Will Not Be Dictated To.
Other Reform counties have fol
lowed the example of Edgefield and
Aiken in having their election com
mittees called together to arrange
for the purpose of dividing the dele
gates to the Constitutional Conven
tion. Aiken, the home of the Gov
ernor, and Edgefield, the home of
Senator Tillman, have declared for
an equal division. Marion follows
suit; so will Newberry, York, Green
ville, Abbeville, and others. Not
withstanding this disposition on the
part of the Reformers, the extreme
element of the Conservatives are
continuing to dictate and threaten.
We are anxious to see the Constitu
tional Convention made up of the
best and wisest men without regard
to which faction they belong to, but
we will not permit a few disgruntled
politicians-who are burning with a
desire to lead the negroes-to dictate
how we shall vote.
Some of the newspapers, assuming
to speak for the Conservatives, have
the effrontery to tell the Reformers
that unless the Conservatives are al
lowed to control the convention and
dictate its policy no concession will
be accepted and the battle will be
fought out at the general election.
And at the same time they have the
audacity to say that they are not
catering to nor appealing to the
We wonder if these men think the
Reformers are a set of fools, to be
frightened by their threats ; and we
further wonder if they think the Re
formers have any confidence in the
assertion that no appeal to the negro
will be made by the men who will
fight the battle out in the general
election ? Everybody recognizes the
fact that the Reformers are largely
in the white majority, and they also
recognize the fact that the Re
formers can, if they chose to do so,
elect full delegations in thirty out of
the thirty-five counties. Then, how
in the name of common sense, can
these men, who want to fight it out
in the general election, hope for suc
cess without the aid of the negro and
without mongrel tickets.
The threats made by the extremists
will not frighten anybody, nor will
it have the effect of causing the Re
formers to stop doing all in their
power within the bounds of reason
and without a sacrifice of principle,
to make - the convention as nearly
non-factional as possible.
The convention should be non
factional for the reason that no fac
tional issue is involved. Everything
the Reformers want adopted in the
Constitution the Conservatives want
also, unless it is a few of the "used
to-bes," who can not get back into
power by the white vote and would,
therefore, rasort to the negro or any
thing for power and place again;
but every man who wants a perpet
ation of white man's government,
a better system of public schools for
white children, and the privilege of
directing where his school-tax money
shall be applied, is in favor of send
ing good men to the convention with

A few days ago a list of the various
manufacturing enterprises and bank

waiting to see what comments the

were speechless. This list was taken
from the record, where every man

that more money has come into the

years than was invested all the four

Ex-Chairman of the Democratic
Party, in an Editorial on
The recent letter of General Wade
Hampton on the political situation has
been read 1:y everyone interested in the
topics discussed, for his public utterances
of late years have been so infrequent that
anything coming from him will attract un
usual attention, especially at this juncture
in our affairs. It is to be regretted that
General Hampton broke the silence he has
maintained for some time, unless he pro
posed to be an active part in the coming
campaign, not that his voice is not entitled
to be heard in South Carohna, but because
his present utterance is so inconsistent
with the position he seems anxious to
mantain, which is to keep aloof from any
participation in local polhtics. His digni
fied retirement from public life in this
State and his absence from the counsels of
his fellow-citizens were a standing remon
strance against the treatment accorded to
him by the ruling element; but when he
disclaims any intention of giving advice
to the people, and then straightway pro
ceeds to give very definite advice to them,
we respectfully submiit that General Hamup
ton has made a decided mistake.
As a citizen of South Carolina, he has the
rights and privileges of any one else, and
there are very many people who will listen
with intense interest to what he says on
any subject. He has served the State in
peace and in wvar, and his fame as a soldier
and citizen is well secured iu history. But
in all his achievements on the field of eat
te or in the redemption of his State from
the rule of the alien and renegade, General
Hampton had the support and co-operation
of the men whom he now ostracises in a
political sense, and to them he is largely
indebted for the laurels won in peace and
war. He has forgotten that the present
majority of white men were his brave com
rades in battle and his devoted lollow
ers in '76, yet he does not hesitate to pro
scribe them when he says that the minonity
contains "the only true national Democrat
ic representatives in the State." This is
the unkindest cut of all, and many of the

will read this sentence with genuine regiret
that their former leader did not remember
the services rendered by them in other
As to his advice that the Conservatives

Kentucky Rtepresentat'.es Ilolping Out
That to Their Constituents.
WiAsmixavoN, Jun.: It'.-It may be
that the next house of representatives
will have a colored man for its chap
lain. At least Representative-elect
Walter Evans, of the fifth Kentucky
district, is holding out that promise to
the colored people who were very in
strumental in his election. Mr. Evans
is now working up the republicans of
Kentucky for the support of the repub
lican nominee for the governorship.
He has among the people there a good
many followers who are ministers of
colored churches and while it is not
known that he has promised any one of
them his support, he has declined his
belief that, the fifty-fourth congress
being republican in politics, should
recognize the colored race by having a
colored man as its chaplain. It is un
derstood that all of the five republi
can representatives elected to the next
congress from Kentucky concur with
Mr. Evans in this view, and that this
movement among the colored people is
solidifying them in the support of the

THE APPEAL CASE UP
Arguments Heard in the South
Carolina Registration Case.
ATTORNEY BARBER OPENS FOR STATE
The Trend of His Remarks Was That the
Federal Court Had no Jurisdiction
In the Premises-Mr. Douglass
Appears for Petitioners.
RIcnMOD. Va., June 8.-Argument
in the South Carolina registration case
was begun in the United States uircuit
court of appeals yesterday before Chief
Justice Fuller, Judges Hughes and
Attorney General Barber opened -or
the state of South Carolina. The trend
of his opening remarks was that Ihe
federal courts had no jurisdiction in the
premises. He said it was set forth by
Judge Goff that the petitioner was a
colored man, and therefore the refusal
of the laws of South Carolina to permit
him to vote was in violation of the fif
teenth amendment of the constitution.
Mr. Barber called the attention of
the court to the fact that nowhere: in
the record did this fact-that the peti
tioner was eclored-appear, though it
was commented upon by attorneys in
the lower court, and very prominently
brought to the attention of Judge Gof
when he granted the injunction.
The attorney general stated that In
stead of providing for a discrimination
against any voter, the law set forth
that any male citizen. regardless of
race, color or condition, who had resid
ed in the state for one year, was enti
ted to vote. It was not the law. he
said, that caused Judge Goff to h.ola
that voters were being denied their
privileges, but it was the abuse of the
law by people ostensibly working un
der it. He contended that the law
should not be held responsible for dere
lictions of election officers.
Mr. Douglas made the opening speech
for the petitioner. Hie prefaced his ar
gument with the statement that though
he and his associate, Mr. O'Bear, ap
peared in opposition to the cause of the,
states, they were in no sense against
the state (except that they were en
~cL.se a voter, and thereby im
peril the federal elections, he contend
ed that a federal court in question had
jurisdiction. The law, he said, was in
violation of section 1. article 14, of the
constitution of the United States. Mr.
Douglas, continuing, directly attacked
the law aud argued that it was enacted
simply for the purpose of disfranohis
ig the negro vote.
Mr. Douglas was followed by Mr.
O'Bear, his associate, whose argument
was largely of a legal nature. He held
that the court had jurisdictio~n to hear
and act in the case. and then occupied
sonic time in the citation of various
authorities and eases bearing upon the
matter at issue.
Gen. Edward McCreary made the
elosing speech for the state. Hie began
his argument by makcing a careful. ex
planation of the registration lawvs. and
showing that the circumstances whi ich
existed when they were enacted justi
fed their passage. lie compared them
to various other registration laws and
argued that they were not more un
just or discrimating than the laws of
other states, which at various times; had
been declared constitutional, and thus,
though the laws had been in existe:2ce
since 1876, their constitutionality
had never been questioned till 1895.
He said if they had been as unjvst as
they are charged to be, they would not
have been allowed to have remained so
long unquestioned. Ue claimed that
the whole case was a political one. and
that Mills was only a figure heaa., and
the speaker did not know so far as the
record went, whether Mills was white
or colored. General McCreary closed
his very brief argument by saying he
thought the court was in full posses
sion of all the facts and that it would
be unnecessary for him to ask th:e at
tention of the court further.
The chief justice was asked if it were
allowable to submit briefs but none
were forthcoming. Three days were
given each side in which to hand the
ases to substantiate their petitions.
They court adjourned till Monday at 10
' clock. _________
LIMPSE OF PEACE AND UNITY.
rho olitical Outlook at Present In the
COLUBIA, S. C., June 11.--The out
Look seems to be decidedly favorable
for peace in the state. County by coun
ty in the state is falling into line, and
ither deciding to elect. non-factional
:elegates to the convention, or doing
what is better and far more assuring,
passing resolutions, through the execu
tive committee, pledging a division ol'
the delegates to the constitutional con
ention. This seems to be the safer
tnd more practical plan, for at the out
let it brings about more confldence in
the action of the committee and unites
the white voters in a common interest.
As to the platform, that is a matter for
rguent on the stump when the cam
paign for the election of candidates
