MANNING, S. C.:
WEDNESDAY OCT. 23, 1895.
The Constitutional convention is
now on the knotty- problem - the
suffrage-and how long they are
going to solve it we do not know.
The plan reported by the commit
tee is not satisfactory to some, and
yet the dissitisfled ones do not offer
a better plan.
Senator Irby took the report of
the committee on suffrage as an ex
cuse to marshal his forces for his re
election in 1896, and his speech may
have the desired effect. But to have
that effect he will have to submit a
better plan and bring convineing
proof that Tillman and his commit
tee are in league with our enemies to
break up white supremacy.
We do not see how our representa
tives can make a Constitutional con
stitution whereby they will disfran
chise negroes and not disfranchise
white men without calling in the aid
of our property-owningand educated
Heretofore we have been opposed
to woman suffrage because we be
lieved the time had not arrived for
them to take a hand in the affairs
of government, but under the exist
ing conditions we are convinced if
the women are allowed to vote,
either by casting the vote in person
or by a proxy of their own selection,
the problem that has given us so
much annoyance will be solved.
There is no use of any longer brush
ing aside the thought. Woman suf
frageis comingand why not? Do they
not own property? Have they not
the intelligence of the average cit
izen? Are they not more entitled to
have a voice in the affairs of this
government than an unlettered
foreigner, who has no other ambi
tion here beyond making a fortune
and returning to the land of .his
We take the woman of to-day, who
is educated, and by hard work with
she needle,- pen, in the school room,
-the counting room, hospital, asylum,
farm, store and hundreds of other
avocations, she has accumulated
*property. She is in the race of
progress with her male competitors,
anid in her fields ,of labor she has
employees who are dependent upon
her success for their support.
Is it right for such superior intel
lectuality to be forced through and
by the forms of law to quietly submit
* to have her rulers selected for her
by those _who are not as competent
to make the selection as herself ? She
Is taxed, and yet a ragged negro,
who has no more intelligence than a
.raceoon, and with nothing but the
clothes on his back, can have more
rights under our laws than she.
If we wanted to build a cotton
factory or any other commercial in
dustry, where thousands of dollars
are involved, there would be no
>hesitancy in allowing a woman to
subscribe her money to the stock,
nor would there be any question in
allowing her to hold a position
to-hazndle the finances of the in
stitution when it is established. Yet
we do when it comes to a vote to
select men to make the laws where
by our property. is to be taxed to
support the government raise our
hands in holy horror and say the
women must keep out.
South Carolina is now in a position
to set the pace for the United States
In the way of doing justice to one
class of her citizens that have been
held back through nothing less than
Throw down the barriers and give
our educated and property-owning
women the right to vote, and the
problem of white supremacy is
solved forever and ever.
Rumor has it that J. E. Ellerbe of
Marion isitchingfor Jno. L. Me Laurin
to commit political suicide, so that he
can get into his congressional shoes,
and one of the nice little schemes on
foot, we are told, is to induce Mc
Lauinto unfor vernor and leave
. ' -acfield open for other
cattle to graze upon. We have no
idea what McLaurin expects to do
in a political way, but the people of
the sixth district will not willingly
give him up even to take a seat in
the United States Senate ; they
feel that the district is very scarce
of such timber as is found in Mc
Laurin's make-up, and they need him
to battle for them where fighting is
most needed. As far as the gover
norship is concerned, we can safely
say without authority,that McLaurin
would not consent to run even if the
balance of the State should demand
it, because as long as the people in
his district claim his services his
duty is first to them. When we
speak of the people we do not mean
a few fly-blowing politicians, who
would destroy McLaurin if the peo
ple can be fooled.
It is said that since Saluda has
been cut off from Edgefield the Re
formers have lost Edgefield county,
and that ex-(Governor Shepperd will
be+th next Senator from that county.
Do not let the manipulations of
the speculators in cotton frighten
you into sacrificing what you have
on hand. The recent slumps in our
judgment are only the tricks of the
trade. Cotton is short, and it must
be had. and as soon as the article is
out of the hands of the growers the
speculators will raise the priee, and
the consumers will pay dearly for
the manufactured goods. Already
cotton goods have advanced at a
fearful rate, and the claim for the
raise with the manufacturers is the
scarcity of the raw material. The spec
ulators are simply playing a game of
hide-and-seek, but they cannot keep
the price down nuch longer. Watch
the prediction-ten cents for cotton
The proposition to make smaller
counties is now fully before the con
vention, and if the members are not
careful they will make the constitu
tional area so small that our coun
ties will not be more than respect
able-sized townships. We do not
hear the tax-payers clamoring for
new counties. This claer comes
from a few little towns and politi
cians. Every town away from a
county seat wants a court house, and
if they get it the result will be an in
creased tax to both the people living
in the new county and the people
living in the old county where the
new portion was cut off. It takes
money to pay the running expenses
of a county, and the more taxable
property there is in a county the
smaller each tax-payer's share of
that expense, but when a portion of
the taxable property is cut off, of
course it increases the taxation to
meet the necessary expenses.
THE BIG SHOW
Of the World and Its Many New Fea
tures Coming to Sumter,
Wednesday, Nov. 6.
The fame of Sells Bothers precedes them
everywhere, and they never fail to receive
an ovation, and their forthcoming visit to
this city will be a glorious holiday, and
their grand unity of big shows will be pre
sented here in all its entirety, introducing
a triple-ring circus, among which will ap
pear a host of European celebrities. There
is not a cheap or mediocre act among them.
What ts particularly noticeable in the per
formances given by Sells Brothers masto
donic circus, is the universal care given to
the costuming. Many worn by the artists
are worth hundreds of dollars, and the
shining silks, glistening satins and wealth
of ornamentation contribute to make a pic
ture absolutely bewildering in its brilliancy.
Patrons of the greatest show on earth are
assured of seeing a complete performance,
night or day, without abridgement. They
will also see the largest and finest collec
tion of rare wild animals in the world, the
best three-ring circus, the handsomest
horses, and the most exciting hippodrome
races ever witnessed in this city. Remefi
ber the day and date.
