MXNNING, S. C.:
WEDNESDAY, JAN. 22, 1896.
Congressman McLaurin has intro
duced a bill in Congress providing
for a public building at Florence to
cost $100,000, and yet some Flor
entites voted for a Republican negro
in preference to McLaurin.
Kamsas wants a dispensary law
patterned after the South Carolina
law. If the United States Supreme
Court does not declare the dispen
sary law unconstitutional a number
of other States will adopt the system.
Senator L. M. Ragin is a member
of the committee to investigate the
charges preferred by Director Wil
loughby against Superintendent Neal.
The charges will be thoroughly in
vestigated and if Mr. Willoughby is
sustained Colonel Neal should be dis
missed, but if Willoughby fails to
make good his charges he should be
expelled from the board.
Captain W. C. Davis, of Claren
don's Legislative delegation, distin
guished himself last Saturday in a
speech opposing the bill to abolish
the Citadel. The daily newspapers
speak well of the speech, and we feel
proud of our young representative
for standing squarely by his alma
mater. The Citedel Academy is do
ing good work in the State and it
should be liberally supported. The
people are disposed to build up
rather than to tear down, and we
now think the constitutional conven
tion made a mistake in not engraft
ing the support of the educational
institutions into the organic law.
Had they done so, the Citadel, Clem
son, and the other colleges would
not be the foot-balls of every dema
gogue desiring to make an issue for
self-advancement. The Citadel made
a narrow escape last Saturday and
we are glad that Clarendon helped to
do the saving.
The Charleston politicians are in a
peck of trouble about their police
matters. Chief Martin has the dis
pleasure of the newly elected mavor,
on account of the former's advocat
ing Huger for mayor, and the result
will be that Martin's head will go- in
the basket unless the Governor saves
him with the authority given to him
under the metropolitan police law.
WVhen in, the city last week we took
the trouble to iae some inquiries
about the police muddle and we
found a strong sentiment in favor of
the metropolitan police in case Mar
tin is removed. The argument is
that if Martin is removed the city
will be under the control and domi
nation of the gamblers and whiskey
men, an'd with Martin re-instated
with a good and obedient force to
back him, the gambling hells and
blind tigers will have a troublesome
time. Ever since the election the
blind tigers do not pretend to bide.
They conduct open bar-rooms, and
in some cases policemen can be seen
in them drinking. We asked one
tiger why it was he dreaded the met.
ropolitan police, and he said: "De
guvnor vill put dat scoundrel Martin
as chief and he vill put on a poliee
dat will eider preak us up or vatch us
so dat ye do pisness not so easy." The
dread of a metropolitan police for
Charleston is pricipally confined to
those who wish to violate the law.
The dispensary law is not enforced in
Charleston, and the State and city
oficers are to blame. The governor
should see to it that the law is en
forced in Charleston as it is in other
towns, and if the city officials will
not do their duty, the Governor
should take hold and do his.
The Columbia Register hits the
nail square on the head when it says
it "wants peace among the white men
of South Carolina, but it will never
be obtained if the price of peace must
be suibmission on the part of the Re
formers to such men as Mayor Dar
gan." The Constitutional Conven
tion has had the effect of mutual un
derstandings between the men who
are really laboring for the welfare of
the State, and the day has come
when men will be looked upon for
their real value rather than from the
standpoint of sentiment. South Car
olina is now~ ready and ripe for en
listing into the progressive proces
sion, and all sensible men will admit
that the way to retard and obstruct
her progress is to keep up discord
and strife among her citizens. Such
men as Mayor Dargan cannot come to
the front without giving mortal of
iense to a large majority and it wvould
Meextreme folly for the friends of
this man to thlink that he can be
crammea down the throats of the
people. His conduct in the last
Congressional election is sufficient to
poiitically damn him forever, and he
is not alone in being among the con
spicuous white witnesses who en
deavored to unseat McLaurin and to
seat that mullato preacher Wilson.
The people will remember the men of
the Dargan stripe and in every
county where such attempt to foist
themselves, they and their friends
will be hooted down under a storm
of seers and derision. The Regis
ter truly says the "Reformers have no
fight with Conservatives as John C.
Shepperd, Daniel S. Henderson, J. A.
Hoyt and men of their class, who are
white supremacy Democrats first, last
and all the time." In the next cam
paign we hope to see the genuine
Conservatives and the true Reform
ers combine, for it is this class that
will save the country from being
over run by greedy and grasping
politicians from both factions. There
are a class of men in this State whose
political ambitions blind them to
every interest but their own, and if
necessary to carry their purposes to
success, they would not hesitate caus
ing bloodshed; it is this class the
people must repudiate if we are to
have peace and prosperity. Mayor
Dargan joined the "Fortyites" and as
soon as we saw his name connected
with the organization we said the
movement had received a death blow;
just so will it be with every
political organization that the fire
brands are allowed to enter. If we
are to become reconciled with each
other, it is to be hoped the acceptable
men on both sides will keep the ob
noxious ones back and that our
future political agitations can be on
well defined and intelligent issues,
instead of being governed by passion
We have received a copy of "The
Colored American," published at
Washington, D. C., in which there is
a considerable space devoted to eu
logizing Congressman McLaurin.
Our representative has certainly so
attracted attention to himself that
even newspapers of different politi
cal creeds feel duty-bound to sing his
praises. "The Colored American'
concludes its well-written article
with the following paragraph:
He is so broad and liberal in ideas and
sympathies that though a democrat his la

any means to the membeis of one race or

PLACE IN HISTORY.
WHERE WILL GROVER CLEVELAND
STAND IN THE LIGHT OF
Designs Against the Republic--A Second
Struggle for the Principles of the
Declaration of Independence
Nigh at Hand.
What manner of man is Grover
Cleveland, and what position will be
assigned him in American history, is
a problem of the future that may
now be discussed. Will his name be
blessed or accursed, depends on the
result of the .igantic struggle now
arising and pending between the in
dustrial forces and organized capital
and greed. It is not true as a general
rule, that what the good men do is in
terred with their bones, and the evi!
they do live after them. This may
have been more or less true three
hundred years age, when Shakes
peare wrote, but Christian civiliza
tion has wrought good, and the race,
in many directions, is kinder and
more forgiving. Within our menworv
Abraham Lincoln was by many de
nounced and slurred as a
third-rate country lawyer; a
silly blackguard and an all
round charlatan and dlemagogue.
Time has elapsed, and the dark cloud
of partisan prejudice arising out of
war is dispersed, and we can now see
things in their true light; as they ex
isted only thirty years ago. Former
friends and foes, the extreme ends of
bitter partisan warfare now unite in
their judgment that Lincoln was a
man of the noblest type, an intense
patriot, without stint or blemish; and
possessed with a soul overflowing
with love of country and humanity.
Selfishness and greed never entered
into or disturbed his divine make-up.
As long as men love liberty, humani
tv and God the character of Abraham
Lincoln will stand forth as the purest
and noblest example of unselfish pa
triotism that the world has, perhaps,
ever produced. So the good Abra
ham Lincoln did was not interred
with his bones, but the evil he did, if
any, has been cast, by common con
seilt, into oblivion. The evil men do
live after them only whien it over
shadows the good. Men are not
judged, however, for evil or good, by
their private habits and eccentricities
of mind. Great and good men are
only men, and are hemmed in and
cast about by the frailties, passions
and lusts that beset the great mass of
humanity. The grandest and purest
of lives have had the bitterest strug
gles to make the divine in their na
tures triumph over the evil. The
fabric of the human charscter is not
erected, and man's estimate placed
thereon by what it has accomplished
for self, but by what it has accom
plished for others. If a common
course in life has made pure hearts
glad-in any way elevated the race
and lightened its burdens-then such
ebaracter is blessed and justly so.
In some, good and evil are so nearly
balanced that they pass out of the
world neither victor nor vanquished.
With such life is a drawn battle. II
Benedict Arnold had remained true
to the cause of liberty rather than
self his coarse and degraded nature
would have escaped observation, and
his name would now be emblazoned
on fame's monument beside that of
Washington and Green. Men will
continue to admire his self-sacrifice
and bravery at Quebec and lament
his fate. Self triumphed over hu
mnanity and Arnold wvas lost. In him
there'was good and evil, nearly bal
anced, but evil came out victor. At
this time in our history we are met
by a character that is a riddle and a
puzzle. But whether the character
of Grover Cleveland shall be blessed
or accursed in our judgment depends
upon the result of coming events.
The triumphs of plutocracy and un
holy greed will declare his name
blessed; but if the brotherhood of
man and the fatherhood of God wins
his name will be accursed. Unique
characters come and go on the stage
of human life, but we have no par
alle-l -.to Cleveland in these days.
Strong and self-willed, his courage
extorts approbation from his enemies.
His fixedness of purpose almost per
suades men to think him honest. Is
he a product of these degenerate,
profigate, and selfish times in our
republic? It imay be. Cleveland
may have appearedl at the prpe
time to serve those who are deliber
ately seeking to overthrow, hy de
grees, if not suddenly, our republi
can form of government, and substi
tute therefor a monarchy or an im
perialism; yet if such ever succeed] in
their purpose, treasonable, and un
bolv as it is, it seems to us that
Cleveland has ap)peared a generation
or more before his time. It is true
that the American people seem, for
the time being, to be lost to all sense
of liberty and patriotism; as a result
of a blind partisan spirit, and an idol
atrous wvorship of party and men.
It is charged, but we hope without
truth, that our people seem ready to
submit-houmbly surrender, and re
ceive without murmer the clanking
chains of a most cruel and heartless
money despotism. But have not
Cleveland and his conspirators
aroused a lion from its lair that is not
et ready' to be taken; and even now
pr nossnver to surrender ? From
the grumbling and discontent ini the
land this seems probable. If, how
ever, the great organized money pow
er, with its consequent avarice, greed,
and purpose of conquest, has made a
fatal blunder in its estimate of a na
tion's willingness to surrender to its
greed, it is the first time in the his
tory of the world as the enslaved na
tions of the past and present will at
test. That a monarchy or imperial
ism is the best form of government
for America is being whispered by
the god of fiendish greed and main
mon-erected in this laud of the free
and home of the brave, there can be
no question. This question is taking
(Ceep root among the favored and
aristocraticeclasses in this country.
It is being aided and encouragedl by
the nations of averice in the old
world. That fatal designs against
the life of this republic are being
cherished by traitors at home and
t rants abroad no fair and intelligent
miin d will deny. Cleveland's deficient
course has given this sentiment re
newed hopes. It is apparent to stu
dents and patriots that a second
struggl for the. principles of the
Declaration of Independence is nigh
at hand, with one advantage in our
favor-the ballot over the bayonet.
It will be the last but most sanguin
ary struggle ever waged for the in
alienable rights of man If these
principles again triumph a new Dem
ocracy will be established on a broad
er and safer basis than ever before.
The experience of the past will make
the task easy. The new republic will
be based on organic ideas that will
be invulnerable to the attacks of the
classes that hate the liberty of the
masses. The laws will be made and
unmade by the direct vote of the peo
ple. Our present dangerous judici
ary system will be a thing of the
past. Our President will be shorn of
his veto power, and the bribery of
lezislative bodies by corruptionists
will be impossible.
No man will hold office of any
kind other than by appointment of
the people received at the ballot-box.
A. new republic and a new civilization
will be inaugurated never dreamed of
even by the fathers. But if these
great principles of the equality of
man, God ordained and imperishable,
go down in the coming conflict, the
the banner of maminon, hideous and
hopelet, will float in triumph over a
nation writhing in the most abject
slavery and serfdom, Liberty will
take its last departure, and the race
will plunge down into darkness and
barbarism with its hope, its love and
its grandeur lost, until the coming of
the eternal king. Grover Cleveland's
place in the world's history will be
fixed. His name will stand at the
head of the list of his day as the most
prominent actor in the wreck of
American liberty, and by the
victors his name will be called
blessed and they will have it so writ
ten. In these trying, tragic and rev
olutionary times he stands out as the
most prominent figure, and as the
champion of the right of the few to
rob the many. If the cause of in
humanity and plutocracy are victo
rious in the impending and irrepres
sible crisis, then his place in the
annals of our country can even now
be determined. The class, that is
and ever has been, the tirelese foe of
liberty and man's natural and inali
enable rights, will write his name
high upon the dark and bloodstained
arch of time, and the names of Jef
ferson, Jackson and Lincoln will be
effaced. The few who rule the
world to plunder it; whose god
(money) has destroyed and devoured
the nation, and convert d God's her
itage for man into a hell for mam
mon, will reverence his name for all
time to come, as greed's demi-god
towering even above the hideous
gory human monsters of the past.
By the favored few who hold to the
idea that God has decreed that the
fittest only ,hall survive, Cleveland
will be worshipped as the incarnate
od of self.
It may be said that I am over
drawing. Have I? The question con
froting the people to-day is, shall
liberty survive or shall it perish. Let
us see what Cleveland has done to
ward forcing the enslavement of his
people. He entered on his second
term surrounded by the most auspic
iOus uduiitiun i 5**J. Orcator~ og
portunities to endear himself to his
country were never in the grasp of
man. ~In him the people had placed
their most cherished hopes. The de
pression and paralyzed condition of
the country, caused by the open and
shameful surrender of the country
into the hands of the national bank
ing p)ower and organized corporate
wealth by the Republican party
created consternation and caused the
people to drive that party from pow.
er even in its strongholds. That
p~arty. in its blind worship of the
favored few had forsaken the warn
ings and teachings of Stevens and
Lincoln. Cleveland had come up
from among the common people, and
they had all reason to trust his lhon
esty and moral courage. They were
not aware of the evil influences that
controlled him at the time of his
second election. Some men make
the conditions that sumround them
and then control them; not so with
'leveland. H~e was controlled by
the influences about him. Wall
street and the doors of the money
changers had opened to -him. He
tasted of and was caught and en
traned by the allurements of wealth
and greed. Soon after his inangura
tion an edict wa.s issued and sent
forth from the abode of the money
changers, who make of the temple
of liberty t he house of woe and des
ohttion; that their interest demanded

isseC of natioinal boni.ie. The at
once set in miotion their vast andI
invincible political mnaabincry.
Congress wa:: at nre e~mvened
extr~ordinary ssson. Cleveland's
messag.e came and be hob2! it was a
secial plea f.or the domz::d of the
mneyc- giang. He p.ut forth the
absurd and hypocritical plea that
the nation was going to perdition for
the want of confidence in the money
circles, and that if the silv er dollar
could be destroyed prosperity would
return suddenly like a clap of thun
der. He turned a deaf ear to the
r of sixty millions of laborers and
producers and at once became the
champion of shylocks against his peo
ple. ~Heset about, with a dogged
and determined purpose, to accom
plish the unholy and fiendish pur
pose of his masters. The stale cant
of Wall street such as "sound money,"
"honest money," a ~'dollar good all
over the world" were uttered by him
like a trained parrot. In order to
enforce the demands of these few for
more plunder and spoils, he brought
to bear all the power and patronage
of his high office. To carry into
effect the desire of these modern
monsters of greed, to hold up and
sack and plunder helpless millions,
he prostituted his high position as
president of this republic, and, like
a seeker of bargains in the market,
bartered and traded with spoilsmen
and bargained with Congressmen
and Senators for their votes in be
trayal of the people. Those who
withstood his onslaughts and remain
ed true to their trusts, he scorned
and held as enemies. No shyster in
a police court ever rn.esorted to means
more questionable to carry a point
At the command of his employers in
the East, that silver should be dis
credited, lie ordered that silver ob
ligations should be paid in gold.
Then in accordance with the scheme
with these conpirators a raid was
pretense that gold was sorely needed
abroad. Then in order to comply
with Wall street's demand for bonds
he ordered them to be issued to buy
back the gold that bad been purloin
ed from the Treasury.
All this was done without the war
rant of law, but over and above the
law. This system of ledger domain
was continued until $162,000,000 of
bonds had been issued in time of
peace, and saddled on the sweat and
toil of the American people. By
these transactions his British and
American brigands by the mere
shuffling of the cards made a profit of
$10,000,000 in one day. In a life and
death struggle at Chicago between
labor on the one side and the incar
nation of avarice and greed on the
other-where weeping men and starv
ing women and children were asking
for the simple right to live, as the
price of their toil and sweat; this
denied them by an autocrat and
money king; the President of this na
tion of Jefferson and Lincoln, sent
the national army to cow and crUsh
the former and enthrone the latter.
And when this unconstitutional anl
despotic act was being opposed by a
patriotic governor of a Sovcrei-u
state he was met by the reply of the
President that there "was no time to
argue." How much further are we
to travel in this direction until we
meet the decaying and bloody day:
of lome? But if the coming and
final death grapel between the mass
es and the god of mammon, the peo
ple should win, and the destroyer
of nations should be annihilated, and
its Unas institutions up-rooted, and
cast from our land, a different his
tory will be written. Grover Cleve
land will then appear in his true
character. The hatred of patriots
for the rule of the money gods is
growing bitter and intense. The
final crisis is certainly near at hand.
If liberty and humanity shall prove
triumphant, the rule of organized
arragant wealth, for evil will be
crashed forever; and the reign of
good toward and among men will
appcar in its glory, and the world
wvill march at a rapid p.ace to the
glorious desiiny that God has de
creed it. The character of Cleve
land will be finl-"Le laid the heav

NEw YORK, Jan. 21.-The Herald
publishes what it claims to be the testi
mony taken before the committee in
vestigating the charges made by LorI
Duriaven against members of the New
York Yacht club who had charge of the
yacht Defender. The Herald claims
that the evidence vindicates Mr. Iselin
and all connected with the Defender
from the charges. Continuing, Th~e
"The evidence is so overwhelming
that it renders superfluous the report of
the committee itself. It admits of only
one verdict-that the charges are ut
terly and totally false."
The Herald devotes four pages to
technical testimony and addrcsses by
Counsel Askwith and Choate.
In the course of the testimony Dun
raven claimed that the Defender im
mersed three or four inches deeper in
the first race than the mecasurenments
indicated. He further said:
"As a matter of proving or disprov
ing my char-ge, in my opinioni nothing
would have been satisfactory except
that I maintain I requested Mr. Fish to
sy to the comimittee that the vessels
should be takeni charge of; steps, in

not possibly be taken out of them, and
that they should be ranmeasurodl. if p)S
