Sumter's Bad Break.
What is the matter with Sumter 2
Both factions seem to be badly
muddled and, instead of getting to
gether-as a few patriotic men are
trying to accomplish-they are drift
ing further apart. We have watched
our sister county with considerable
anxiety, and regret to confess that
the present condition in Sumter is
the fault of the men allied with the
'Tis true, the rules of the Demo
cratic party require a primary, and
that all candidates in the primary

spirit intended, is to have the candi
dates pledged before the primary
As we understand the situation,
the Conservatives offered to divide

Later another meeting was called
by Reformers who were in favor of
peace, and they, together with the
Conservatives, agreed upon a divi
sion and, in order to comply with
the rules of the Democratic party,
these gentlemen went to County
Chairman Keels and asked him to
accept their pledges, which he re
fused to do.
Under the circumstances there was
no other course left open to the com
promise ticket but an appeal to the
people, which they have made. In
our opinion Chairman Keels did
wrong, and the white voters of his
county will repudiate his conduct
just as the voters of Georgetown did

forced fight to be had in the general
election the compromise ticket will
scorn to appeal to the negro vote,
and that every white man who favors
fair play will turn out 'and vote the
ticket of the people that want peace
and a reconciliation. We are in full
sympathy with Sumter's compromise
ticket because we feel that a grave
injustice has been done them with
out cause or reason.
The School System.
The Constitutional convention,
soon to meet, will have a question
before it that is more important to
the people of South Carolina than
all other questions will be-the free
schoolg. If there is anything that
needs a radical change it is our free
school system, for, as it is now, it is
People are taxed and forced to pay
for the maintenance of the present
system and get scarcely any benefit
from it. The colleges are bountifully
provided for, while the schools at
home get such a small pittance that
to close them entirely would not be
Why should the people be taxed to
support colleges ? It seems to us that
if a parent is able to spare a child
from home to go to college that
parent is sufficiently able to pay
Richmond, Va., some time next
Monday. From what we can gather
out of the published proceedings the
object of those seeking these injunc
tions seems to be to have the election
of delegates to the Constitutional
convention held without any restric
tions, so that the ignorant mass of
negro voters can be brought into ac
quisition by the treacherous scoun
drels who would again put as under
negro rule. The Constitutional con
vention will be held, and it will be
ruled by white men-regardless of
the attempts of the dirty hirelings
who are bought and hired to prevent
A Homestead Should Protect.
One of the problems for our states
men to solve is the homestead, and,
next to the suffrage question, it will
be the most important that will
come up in the Constitutional con
vention. In our present condition
the people would be badly crippled
were the homestead exemption to be
wiped out, but in the course of time
it would be a blessing.
If the homestead exemption was
out of the way and all of a man's
property responsible for his debts,
great care and precaution would be
taken to keep out of debt, and there
would be very little display in bor
rowed plumage. Men who now go
into.debt and hope by speculation to
pay will stand off, because that
which he has may be lost to him; but
when he can borrow and obstruct
his creditors with the homestead, lie
is not so careful and will take
The homestead exemption should
be what it is intended for-a protec
tion to the wife and children. As it
is to-day it is not a protection to
them, but a screen and a license to
Under the present law a man buys
supplies for the sustenance of his
family and clothing to keep the
wintry winds from their bodies; he
buys the coffin to bury the dead and
medicine to heal the sick; but, when
the time comes to pay, he will not.
He obtained the credit on his honor
and property; the merchant is
forced to sue, and gets a judgment;
the sheriff, under his oath of office
and a severe penalty, must set aside
the homestead; the creditor selects
a man, the debtor another, and the
sheriff a third; these commissioners
are from the community and possibly
in the same boat, and what do they
do? They usually set all of the
debtor's property aside as his home
stead, and the creditor gets nothing.
The next day the man who has
just beat his creditors and had his
homestead set aside has no money to
conduct his business and he goes to
town, hunts up a money-lender, gives
him a mortgage of the homestead
which was intended as a protection for
his wife and children, at an exorbitant
rate of discount (and in some cases
interest besides), and away he goes.
It is not long before the mortgage is
due. The borrower has spent the
money on his crop and made a fair
crop, but the prices of produce do
not bring the cost of the outlay; he
simply can not pay the mortgage.
The result is the mortgage is
foreclosed, and the wife and children
are not protected, as was intended
when the homestead law was made.
If we are to have a homestead
and we believe the present condition
of the people demands it-our law
makers should make the homestead
beyond the reach of the greedy,
merciless creditor, and when it is set
aside let be a protection-which it
can not be, if the party having it set
aside is allowed to dispose of it ; let
it become entailed property, so that
it enMon b nvewtowed~p. Then. if
Sne couurab can iiea? the iaLc .juo
as they do now in partition cases,
where minors are interested, and if
a proper showing is made, orders can
be given for the property to be sold
and the money re-invested, or such
disposition as will best subserve the
interests of those whom the law
sought to protect from the misfor
tunes or mismanagement of heads of
"Figgering" Their Way Out.
We heard a darky say once, when
he was dissatisfied with a settlement
he had with his employer, that he
could not understand how it was
that he did not get more money for
his labor. It was with him like with
most darkies, he "tek out'n de com
misary endurin' ob de week"; when
it came to settling he fell short in
his calculations. He went about grum
bling, and when asked if he did not
see the boss' figures he said "yes,
and when dat buckra git to hell and
de devil fool to true' em with pencil,
swear fo' God he will figger hisself
out in two minutes."
Just so it is with the arguments of
the "gold bugs." We see ourselves
daily getting poorer, our little homes
about to be taken away from us, our
children depriV'ed of the things they
should have, to make their young
hearts light and haDDv. and in our
two delegates have been instructed
to vote for Coxey for the guberna
torial nomination of Ohio. A man
to be thus honored by his people

The people throughout this broad
union are waking to the seriousness
of our financial situation. On every
train that is traveled passengers are
reading books on the money ques
tion; in every town the matter is
being discussed; at every cross-road
where men congregate the financial
question is hammered on, and yet
we have not been able to find a man
who can convince us that the repeal
of the Sherman silver-purchasing
clause, which placed this country on
a gold standard, has helped us. But
the opposite is seen and realized
without any argument further than
the cold, thin finger of a famished
hand pointing to the destruction of
the values of those who toil in the
broiling sun: the debt-enslaved
farmers, who are anxious to relieve
themselves from the coils of debt,
but can not do so because the men
who were entrusted to make laws for
them were bought up by blood
sucking enemies. The people want
relief, and they will have it sooner or
later. The merciless manipulator
has had his day, and the people sub
mitted vith wonderful patience; but
that submission is about at an end,
and if a change does not take place
soon the shackles will be broken by

THE REV. THOS. DIXON
On the Dispensary System of South
The Rev. Thomas Dixon of the People's
Church in New York city recently took a
trip 6outh, and in the course of a sermon
to his congregation after his return, said :
"I regret that I can not give a full account
of the working of the saloon system in
South Carolina, as I announced on last
Sunday that I would do to-day. I could
speak for one hour on the subject. It is
the most difficult of all problems of all to
solve. I looked forward with pleasure to
investigating the operation of the dispen
sary system in South Carolina. The sit
nation is this :
"The State closed up all bar-rooms and
opened instead places where all forms of
liquors could be bought--from the finest
to the poorest-but none of it could be
consumed on the place. The officer in
charge has no interest in the profits or
success of the business, as he receives a
salary. It was inaugurated and put into
effect by the cyclone Tillman, then Gover
nor, now United States Senator. It met
with great opposition and the severest
criticism; but anything from him would
have been the same. I honestly believe
that if an angel had stood on St. Michael's
in Charleston and said that it was a divine
to the vast majority of people.
"I spent twenty-four hours in Charles
ton, and went through the roughest por
tions of the city until one o'clock in the
moning, and never any city so quiet, ex
cept Portland, Maine. and there the same
conditions exist, except that the South.
Carolina law is a poor edition of the Maine
law, where liquor is only sold by prescrip
tion. In South Carolina it is sold to any
one. The revenue feature of the dispen
sary law is its worst feature. I never saw
a an or woman in the city under the in
fluence of liquor.
"I spent the Fourth of July in a city of
8000 in South Carolina, where half the pop
ulation is colored, and not an arrest was
made for drunkenness or disorderly con
duct. I did not see one person the slight
eat ninder the influence of liquor.
"They drink yet in South Carolina. of
course ; but, as you lesseni the temptation
you lessen drunkenness. (Cheers.) They
have eight dispensaries in Charleston now
instead of 300 bar-rooms, and instead of
all the attractions of a first-class bar-room
they present nothing more attractive to the
passer-by than the plainest hardwaie store
where you buy ten-penny nails and mon
key wrenches. (Cheers.) Oh, no ! No
one ever thinks of going to a dispensary
on account of its attractiveness. You see
only the shelves with the goods stacked
away on them and a plain bulletin board
against the wall giving in detail the latest
price on the goods.
"The blind tigers are running, and just
as it always was; any fool that wants to get
drunk can get drunk without going to the
dispensary-can get drunk at any time.
"I believe that South Carolina, with her
impulsiveness and her disposition to lead,
has given to the world the solution of the
iquor problem, aud that it could be ex
tended to the other forty odd States w'ith
tAni4~~ ,T-- tion."

More news of the distressed negro
colonists from Georgia and Alabama,
who deserted their Mexican Eldorado
has been received at the State Depart
ment in a telegram from Jesse W.
Sparks, United States consul at Piedras
Negras. Mr. Sparks says that 46 ne
groes are quarantined at Eagle Pass by
the Texas authorities. They were
brought across the Rio Grande by Mr.
Sparks on Friday night. Twenty-five
are ill with small-pox at Torren, eight
seriously. The local authorities at
Tocrean announced that they could no
longer maintain the negroes, and Mr.
Sparks says all the well ones, number
ing 150, would arrive at Piedras Negras
yesterday. He intended to send rations
to the sick who remained. Mr. Sparks
calls attention to the praiseworthy con
duct of Mr. L. M. Johnson, the general
manager of the Central Railroad, who
is feeding the negroes in Mexico at his
own expense. Mr. Sparks adds that
everythinir was moving smoothly for
day and Monday, the treasury gained
almost all the gold it had lost during
the past two weeks, the increase since
Saturday being $1,69,868. Tlhis sudden
accummulation of gold attracted con
siderable attention and it was supposed
that it was due to some action on the
part of the bond syndicate. Secretary
Curtis, however, said that this was not
true, so far as the treasury was advised.
Tile increase, he said, came almost in
the ordinary course of business and was
due to an exchange of gold for bills,
probably caused by the settlement of
accounts in New York. The Incident
was, he said, not infrequent. The re
serve today amounted to $107,321,670.
