State Chairman of the Democratic
party Irby has called his committee
to meet on April the 7th, and a wran
gle is looked ior from certain quart
ers. Tue bone of contention will be
whether to send delegates to the
National Democratic Convention in
structed to abide the result of that
body. Senator Irby ,is making a
death struggle for re-election and he
will use Tillman's go-prepared-to
bolt letter as a life preserver. South
Carolina will send a delegation to
Cliieago and they will be sent unin
structed; if the Convention forces up
on the Democracy a candidate who
is a lepublican in all but name, we
look fojr a big split and a big excursion
to St. Louis. I he last Democratic
Convention forced a candidate upon
the Democracy by the votes from
Republican States and although that
candid-ate was ovcrwhelwingly elect
ed, the party is now in) a worse
condition than it was twenty years
We are satisfied the campaign will
be made on the financial issue and if
the Democrats go before the people
on a gold standard p.latforw, they
will not carry as many electoral votes
as W eaver did in the last campaign,
but if they go in on a free silver plat
form, tbere is a -i.ghtin~g chance to
wia. Nearly ever-y D)emocratic State
in the Union is fvr silver and it is
our opinion, that soonl or late, the
Repubiican party will give us free
silver with a pro~tective tar-ift, and
reiproeity ; in other words, it will
eClarge upon the Blaime idea. There
are sconso0f men in this State who
have banished the free trade idea and
are now wanting protection; they
wantit because they look forward to
South Carolina becoming a great
manufacturing state and if protec
tion enriched the manufactui-ers
ol the North and last, it is
needed down here. As long as the
negro was a factor in the politics of
this SItte no issues could be dealt
with; with us, it was the maintain
ence of whiite mia's role, but now
that in a large measure the negro
vote has been removed, silver, gold,
tariff and other issues can be intelli
gently discuissed, and the day is not
far c-lf when men will he elected upon
issues rather than party as is done at

"As he is now soon we will be,"
I wanrt to give you a sketch of how "the
grace of the Lord Jesus" can sustain a
Christian in the darkest hour of his life,
when the world recedes from our vision
and the gate leading into the eternal, opens
before us. Brother Ethoney, like the
Apostle Paul, could say, "I am now ready
to be otffred up.'
There was a an, Jonathan Merriam by
name, a distant relative, w'no died three
quatters of a ceatury ag>. 'he following
are almost his identicail words, as he lelt
recorded. I give it to you with the silent
prayer to "our God" that it may be the
means in God's hands of helping us in
that trying hour. Death to some is a
gloomy thought, but the more of Christ
that we have in us, the more cheerful death
seems. The Apostle Paul arose so far above
death that he could say "'io die is gain."
THE LAST WOrDS OF A CHR1STIAN.
Friends often gather to hear the last
words of at 1.-ved one as they enter the
"Dark Vailey of the Shiadow." In this day
of loose Christian living, when men are
given to the study of science, literature
and art; when te book of all books lies
upon the shelf unopened aud unread.
W~hen men are drifting from the old estab
lishing principles of the religion of former
ages, would it not do us good to glance at
the sick chamber of a good man ? Some of
you whose eyes may fall upon these words
have mourned the loss of a loving friend.
Were I with you to-night in your own
house, yoti could tell me how your loved
one died, the last parting word, each brok
en sigh and the last sweet smile that

whose life ended sevenuty years ago. It wais

that its laws are made by Congress.
2. That Congress consists of two
branches-the Senate and the House
3. That the Senate is composed of
two Senators from each State; that a

majority of the electors, who are

number of electors equal to the com

years ago as an object lesson. What
would they say if a majority of the
Senate should place a free-coinage
bill on a general appropriation bill
and give Eastern representatives the
choice of whether to defeat the bill,
or pass it with the provision in it in
favor of silver coinage? Mr. Carlisle

As an example of the lessons of
friendship as taught in our Castle
Halls, I will give some extracts from
an address delivered by Bro. J. R.
Camahan Feb. 19th 1889.
"Here in our own land we have
examples of courage, moral heroism,
and true Pythian friendship, just as
heroic, as brilliant and enchanting as
any that have ever been written on
the pages of the worA's history.
We can point you to the heroic
death of Samuel Holder Hines, whose
spirit went out amid the charred and
blackened ruins of the Spotswood
hotel, in Richmond, Va., on the
mUnin ,g of December 25, 1870, in the
vain and fruitless effort to save the
life of a brother Knight. His was
the first sacrifice to the principles of
our Order. His memory shall be en
shrined in the hearts of all true
Knights while time shall last.
In 1878 all hearts vere touched,
and earnest measures of relief went
out to the stricken people of the
South. The terrible epidemic of yel
low fever had come upon them; the
extremities of human misery were
illustrated with grim and ghastly
effect; all their business was stifled,
and all their industries paralyzed;
their people panic-stricken; the dead
who had fallen by the scourge were
being borne to hastily-prepared
graves in almost continuous and un
broken line. Among the men who
were striving by their presence and
unceasing efforts to alleviate the
sufferings of that stricken people none
were more active than Henry S.
Reynolds, then Grand Chancellor of
Tennessee. He was a member of the
Pythian Committee of Relief, and as
such was constant, faithful, fearless
and untiring in ministering to. the
wants of his afflicted brethren. When
urged to leave the stricken city he
anwered in one of his last letters: 'So
long as one member of the Order
remains in Memphis I deem it my
duty to remain, and should I fall, I
will fall at my post of duty.' In ful
fillment of that duty he fell a victim
to the scourge and died on the 18th
of September, 1878. His life was a
noble exemplification of the tenets of
the Order' his death gloriously illus
trated its symbolic virtues. In the
long list of the world's illustrious
martyred dead not one has given .a
more heroic example that all the
world might follow than Henry S.
Reynolds; not one has more sublime
ly displayed 'that courage which,
arising from a sense of duty and
coupled with friendship, encounters
difficulties and dangers with firmness
and without fear or depression of
Others we might mention: Early,
who, deciding to leave his home and
go to the stricken ones of Memphis,
tirst announced his intention in his
lodge-room, and Dickinson, who rose
and saidl: 'Brother Early must not go
alone; if he should be attacked with
the yellow fever, who will care for
him? I will go to aid him, if need
be.' Go they did, and in the midst
of their self-imposed duty were strick
en down, and now rest side by side.
Woodland in the Hudson River tun
nel , giving his life for his associates;
James Ward, and the seven brother
Knights with-him, who went to the
rescue of their brother Knights in the
burning mine at Savannah, Indian
Territory, April 4, 1b87; the heroic
struggle made by the gallant Knights
to rescue their comrades and brother
Knights from the burning shaft of
the Alta mine, Virginia City, Nev.,
are all the fruits of the lessons of
the brave friendship and devotion
taught in our castle-halls. Noble and
true were they in their lives; almost
Godlike in their death.
What more shall we say of them?
"With morn, with noon, with right:
with changing clouds and changeless
stars; with grass, with trees, and
birds; with leaf and bud, with flower
and blossoming vine, with all the
sweet infiuences of nature may they
and such as they rest,' noble in life,
heroic in death; crowned on earth,
enthroned forever in the castle-balls
The chivalry taught by true Pyth
ianms is that spirit of bravery that
goes manfully through the world,
daring to be right and do right,
though all the world should despise
and hate. It should be that spirit
that will lead a man to stand for the
oppressed and against the oppressor
under whatever circumstances found.
Brothers, our Order is yet in its
infancy-we are to-day but fairly
started on the highway of success
what the distant fature is to bring
us, God in His infinite wisdom only
knows. This, we believe: to man
there is yet to be a higher, holier,
grander advancement in the great
brotherhood of nations and men, and
the Order we here represent must see
to it that she bolds a worthy part and
leads on in the onward and upward
movement. Said an eminent painter,
after long months of careful labor, as
he stood and gazed on the canvas on
which his hand and genius had
wrought a most wondrous picture,
wonderful in its truthfulness and
beauty, 'I have painted for eternity.'
Brethern, you are building for
eternity; see to it that you build well.
Every stone that goes into the struc
ture of our great Pythian temple
should be the purest Parian marble,
every Knight should be the truest
type of the noble man. Twenty-five
years have passedl since the Order of
Knights of Pythis was first called in
to existence, but to-day, by the teach
ing and practice of the principles I
have but faintly outlined, she stands
proudly and bravely side by side with
the older sister fraternities. Her re
cord thus far has been a glorious one
in the sympathy and aid that has
gone out from her to thousands of
earth's toiling and care-worn sons

ON BOARD OF THE INDIANA.
It was our pleasure to be one of
the guests at Port Royal Last Fr-iday
to witness the docking of the great
battleship Indiana, and although the
failure to dock the ship, on account
of adverse winds, was a disappoint
ment. Major Lock wood and his com
mittee made good what was lost in that
portion of the program. We regret
our inability to handle nantical parl
ance in order to make the littde we
will have to say smack of the roar
ing and billowy sea, but our experi
ence on the water and the big boat
or rather floating fort, for such is the
Indiana, was novel. We went all
over her, asked hundreds of questions
an-d listened to as many answers and
did not feel at all green, because
nie-tenths of our party were land
lubbers, and they knew no more than
we. Every attention to make our
party enjoy the visit, was paid us b
the gallaut officers of the Indiana and
they did not seemi I.o tire of giving us
The Indiana is said to be the
greatest battle-ship in the world and
a vague idea of this engine of de
struction can be formed frotn her
crew and armament:
The turrets and the armor ou the
vessel are the wonder and admir-ation
of the world, and some idea of her
battery may be had when it is r-e
membered that her stationary guns
are four 13-inch gons, eight 8-inch,
four C-inch, twenty six-poundeis,
six one-pounders, four Gatling gun ,
and six torpedo tubes. Then carry
in your mind the idea that a single
fring of one of the large guns 1,150
pounds of iron is discharged, at a
broadside 5,600 pounds is belched
into the enemy. In a word, the
"Indiana" is a r-egular- floating Fort
Sumter, with highest order of ordn
anee and appliances for destruction.
T.here are over 400 menu aboard,
and it is naturally a very mixed and

A FRIEND'S TRIBUTE.
Mr. G. Willie Jones, aged 25 years,
died at the home of his sister, Mrs.
Oliver Wells, near Panola, S. C.,
Friday, March 0th 1806. Willie was
en obedient son, affectionate broth
er, kind neighbor and faithful friend,
but above all he was an humble and
consistent Christian, possessing many
noble traits of character, by wvhich
he won the esteemi of all. His illness
was borne with remarkable patience
andl fortitude. He had p)erfect as
surance of eternal happiness, leaving
no doubt in the minds of loved ones
that all was well. He is not dead,
only gone home. Those of us who
knew him intimately, loved him, and
the world is better for his having
lived. How sad that he should be
cut down in the midst of young mian
hood, but God does not measure life
by years. and while we can not al
ways und1(erstaud( His works, we know
that He doth all things well.
A father and mother, a number of
brothers and sisters, and a large cir
cle of relat ions,are left to mourn their
loss. May we all nmet h im in heaven.
