REF0lM1 IS NEEDED.
Clarendon is now without a State
Senator. What is to be done about
it? Do the people fell like being put
to the expense of an election to fill
out an unexpired term which will
only be for one session? As far as
we are concer'neo, we are willing to
let the seat retuaina vacant until the
next regular cleetion, because the
mnaterial c0Popsin the last General
Assembly will he the same for the
next meeting, and~ whenQI they have
served ou: the term :he people will~
breathe at sigh of relief. History will
record the last session of the South
Carolina Legislature as the most
bungling and triiling that ever as
semblea in a State where the people
are supposed to be educated. The
little work they did is so botched up
that the officers who are to execute
the law find it almost impossible to
knojw what to do. The amended
pension lawv, instead of helping the
worthy people entitled to a pension,
has retarded the collection of their
money so that it is hard to say when
they will get their little mite. The
County Government law has been so
messed that instead of simplifying
the machinery, they have made it
more cunmbersomie, anda worse-they
have made it more expensive. As
the law stands now, none but the
most eminecut iaw.yers arc comnpetant
to sit as membexrs of the board. And
as with the laws wo have mentioned,
it is so with all of their work. It was
not iueomnpetenev which caused this
miserable condition: it was the "Peace
and Harmony" bypee~risy of unscru
pulous poiic s who took advant
age of their positions to further
their schemres for political advance
ment,but if we mist ak not the temper
of the people, there wi be a general
repudiation of s uh. just as soon as
the people can ge: w wack at them.
At the last election the people wvent
through one of the nastiests cam
paigns ever held in the State; the
very atmosphere was filled wit~h all
kinds of insinuatie::s of wrong-doing.
The candidates promised the people
that they would look into these
chargecs and correLct any evils that
-might be existing. A leader of the
Rteform forces.was the victim of slan
derous inslauations and he was
tradd an swaped way that
schemig~ politiciaus might succeed.
The peoplev were fooled, and that
badly, but it was not until too late
that they realizel themselves the
victims of political sharpers; they at
last have discovered~ the fellows who
were crying, "stop tlh were the
thieves themselves and that they
were making the cry against others
to throw tie pubie's suspicion away
The resut has hecu that the peo
ple have paid d. ly for their experi
ence; they will hav to oganize a

legislation that wil giv themi relief
fronm oppressive taxat ion. they' will
ha-ec to LLake a i"h for legislation
that will give the countryv safe roads
and bridezs. and they will have to
fight for a system of sehools that are
not a faree.
The R.eform movement, when it
was inaugurated by ten Tillman,
J0 MCLr-ua nl oers. did not
contemplate the throwing out of one
set of money changers for another;
they felt the country's need of a
change and like patriots they sounded
the tocsin and aroused the people.
The political fakirs and sharps
caught the drift of public sentiment
and they too joined in the popular
cry for a change; by beating tom
toms into the excited ear of the pub
lic and making all kinds of fair prom
ises; some of these fakirs and sharps
got into the temple and for a while
everything went along smoothly, but
the vicious greed of these schemers
commenced asserting itself, as soon
as the watchful eye of Tillman and
McLaurin was taken off and little by
little would their nefarious practices
erop out. As a consequence, the Re
form party has been retrograding
and those of us who went into it from
pure motives must stand silently by
and listen at those we fought sneer
and ridicule us, and throw into our
faces the legislation which makes us
groan under the heavy weight of in
creased taxation, tantalizing and
bunglesome machinery to carry on
our government, and a free school
system that absorbs th: people's
money with no value in return; then
the little which is given to those who
shed their blood for their country's
honor, that poor mite has also got
into the mercenary channel and by
the time it reaches those for whom it
was intended, it is so small that it is
hardly worth signing a receipt for,
if there is much distance to be trav
eled to get it. The execution of the
pension law now, requires a whole
lot of red-tape and every official
that takes a look at it also
takes from it as his fee; it ought to
be a work of love and when the tax
payers first consented to allow them
selves taxed to pension these noble
and worthy people, it was understood
that they would get the entire ap
propriation instead of having it dis
counted by the fees of hungry of

MIcLAURIN IS A STATESMAN..
The speech of Hon. John Li. Mc
Laurin, recently delivered in Con
ress is attracting wide spread atten
tion, as ind eed has every speech
hich he has made since he has been
member of that distinguished body.
For thirty-five years, biennially
here has been a thrashing over of
old tariff straw; for ten years the Al
iance has been endeavoring to teach
the people that the real issue i~s
oney, and never has there been so
orcible a reminder of this fact as Mc
Laurin's speech. He laid bare the
mbuggery that is practiced by
oth parties upon the people about
the tariff. When wve reflect that there
s only a difference of seven per cent
n the average between the Wilson
nd McKinley Bill, and that the
Dingley Bill is about midway .be
ween the two, it is plain that after
ll, the practical question is one of
discrimination, and that as McLaurin
says, the South has to bear the bur
He repudiates the doctrine of pro
tection for the sake of protection, but
boldly claims that if there is to be
protection that the South must have
The figures he gives are appalling
as showing the concentration of
wealth into the hands of the money
ad manufaturing class. He points
out the injustice of forcing farmers
to produce cotton in competition with
the cheap labor of Egypt and yet deny
them the right to purchase goods
where they can get them cheapest.
This comes home to every farmer,
5.000,000 pounds or 120,000 bales
of Egyptian cotton imported into
this country and increasing 10.000,
000 pounds exery year. Depressing
the price of our cotton to the level
of Egyptian labor. It is a mistake to
say that it only comes into competi
tion with Sea Island cotton. The cot
ton that Egyptian cotton competes
with is such upland as the Allen long
staple. It is only a few years since
our farmers could get four cents per
pound more for the Allen long stale
than for the ordinary short staple. It
looked as though we had found a
way to diversify and increase our
profits; at once came these Egyptian
Allen long staple below the cost of
As Mr. McLaurin says, the wheat
and corn growers are protected a
gainst importations from Canada, and
the cotton planter is "left to be
plundered by the whole world."
When a man raises his voice in be
half of the cotton planter, he is de
nounced by the very men who vote
to protect wheat and corn.
Why is it any more of a violation
of principle to vote to protect wheat
and corn than cotton? We are unable
to say unless it is because the owners
of grain elevators are a well organized
and wealthy class, who have their
special Representatives in Congress,
while the cotton planters are disor
gorized and have no one except now
then an independent thinker, who
has the courage to express his senti
Of course, McLaurin is criticised
He has become accustomed to that.
In six years of public service, he has
been perfectly fearless in his utter
ances-more than once the politicians
have attempted to down him, because
of this boldness and independence,
but each time they have found thosa
horney-handed, honest-hearted cotton
planters, with whose wrongs Mc
Laurin stirred this country the other
day, solidly with the man, who is ever
ready to fight their battles.
We want every man in this State
who plants cotton or is interested in
cotton planting to read McLaurin's
speech. The newspapers only publish
extracts. We want the cotton planters
of this State to see how the Repre
sentatives of New England attacked
the man who proposed to lessen their
profits by making them pay more for
the raw cotton to the man who toils
in the broiling sun to make it. One
of the great troubles with our system
of government is, that Representa
tives of the people are either owned
by the trusts or syndicates, or are so
bound down by party dogma, that
they are afraid to tell "the truth, and
the whole truth" so "help them God,":
The people at home will appreciate
McLaurin's speech and they are the
only onies, he cares a snap of his
finger about. The average voter does
not care for fine spun theories and
sentiments, they are tired humbug
gery and bosh: they want a man of
boldness of thought and speech, who
will hold up their side of the single
tree, and fight for the South and
Southern interests, at every oppor
tunity, in every place and at every
PROTECT WHEAT, Win NOT
When McLaurin introd uced his
amendment in the Committee of
Ways and Means for a duty of two
and one-half cents on all cotton im
ported into this country, every Re
publican voted against it. Bailey,
MLaurin, Swanson and Robertson
voted for it. Wheeler asked to be
excused from voting and McMillin
voted against it. * * *
Why should the Republicans, who
represent the New England mills,
which use Egyptian cotton, vote
against it, if it would not raise the
price of Allen long staple and other
cottons of that class?
How could any Southern Demo
crat who had voted to protect wheat,
fail to vote to protect cotton? * *
We confess that we do not under
stand much about the tariff, but it
does seem to us, that there is a jus
tice in all that McLaurin says, which
should commend itself to the com
mon sense of every farmer. Get the
speech and read it. See for yourself.
We had hoped to have extracts from
it on our outside this week, but could
not get it set up in time, we will do
our best to have it next week. By
writing to Congressman McLaurin
he will take pleasure in sending you
the whlole speech. * **
The Columbia State had the fair
ness to publish a large portion of our
Congressman's speech, and give a
sensible and just view editorially.
Tis is in marked contrast with the
Register, which published a long
winded dissertation of aiout four
columns without publishing but a
paragraph of the speech. * *
The editoiial of the iRegister on
Congressman McLaurin's speech read
like it was written, by some ante
diluvian spirit, who shook off the
cerements of the grave for this pur
pose. * * *
We cannot conceive of anything
more detestable than ingratitude, and
one of the boldest exhibitions of this
miserable trait was exhibited in the
Register's treatment of McLaurin.
We are glad that Keoster had the
manhood to resent it by severing his
connection with this mendicant sheet

JUSTICE TEMPERtEI WITH MERCY.
Governor Ellerhe has had a most
trying case to handle in the case of
Murphy, the alleged murderer of
Treasurer Copes;from the begining to
the end, he showed a disposition to
give the doomed man every chance
to prove his innocence. At last newly
discovered evidence was brought to
him, which while not sufficient to
justify the Governor in granting a
pardon, was enough to justify him in
ommutin thsecntence in life im
prisonment. The Governor's action
has been severely criticised by some
people in Orangeburg where the
murder was committed, but their
criticisms have not detracted from
the justice displayed by the course
the Governor pursued. They claim
that the evidence upon which in
iluencedthecommutation was false and
given by a man, although a minister,
was of bad character and notnd for
I his lying qualities. Let that be true;
let the preacher's character be as
bla-k as midnight; before Governor
Elilerbe, stood a man pleading for his
life and protesting his innocence of
the crime for which he was convicted.
A witness steps in and under ,s
solemn oath, swears that at time the
culprit is alleged to have committed
the murder he was, at that same tim(
with him in another State. Undei
these conditions had the Governoi
turned a deaf ear to the appeal h(
would not have handled justice witi
mercy. Commutation of Murphy'
sentence to life imprisonment was
right and we are glad that Governoi
Ellerbo had the courage to turn away
from the popular demand for Mur
phy's blood to listen to an appeal foi

Mr George R.Koester, who has been
editor of the Columbia Register for
some time, is no longer connected
with that paper.
When the Charleston World sus
pended publication in October, 1891,
Mr. Koester, who had been with the
World, accepted a position with the
Register, and has been connected
with that paper up to the present
time. Mr. Koester served as night ed
itor, and when Col. T. L. Gantt re
signed the editorship of the Register,
Mr. Koester took up the dual work
and served as editorial wr't er and
night editor for the Register and has
since done that - ork.
Mr. Koester is a young newspaper
man, who had worked hard and per
sistently, and his many friends in the
State wish him well in whatever work
lie may undertake in the future. Mr.
Koester to-day, in regard to his sev
e ance of relations with the Register,
"Ten days ago, or possibly two
weeks, the Register received from the
associated press advance proof sheet
of Congressman McLaurin's recent
brillant, sensible and practical speech
upon the tariff question. Paren
thetically I might say no paper ever
had a truer or more valuble friend
than Mr. McLaurin has been to the
Register, for he proved his friendship
by deeds, not words. I handed the
copy of the speech to Mr. Calvo, who
said lie did not want it, and that Reg
ister would combat Mr. McLaurin's
position, which had been partially re
vealed by his proposition in the com
mittee on ways and means, to impose
a tariff dutv on cotton imports. I
suggested that possibly he had best
read the speech first. He did so, but
refused to discuss its merits with me.
what I said was sufficient to show I
was in sympathy with Mr. McLaurin's
sentiments. "Mr. McLaurin spoke last
Tuesday. The Register of the next
av contained an ekaborate three
column attack upon his speech, writ
ten by Col. J. W. R. Pope, .who
was formerly editor of the Register,
which, by the way, has had an in
finite variety editors, most of whom
had but a short connection vith it.
While the Register contained a pon
derous and wofully weak attack upon
Mr. McLaurin's speech. Mr. Calvo re
fused to allowv even a brief synopsis of
that speech to be printed in the pa
per, wvhich was manifestl most un
just and unjournalist. Wether one
agrees with the speech or not, it
must be confessed that it was a most
notable and signficant utterance,
which a paper with a grain of enter
prise and get-up-and-get about it
would publish as news. Other papers
in the State, which are opposed to
Mr. Me Laurin, published copious ex
tracts from his speech so that their
readers could see for themselves
what he did say. But the Register
treated the readers as little children
who could not be trusted to read
something with which it did not
agree, and wvho must accept its dic
tum without being given an oppr
tunity to judge for themselves. uch
treatment of Mr. McLaurin was es
pecially unfair in view of all he had
done for Register.
"As a newspaper man I have a re
putat ion to sustain and could not af
ford to be held responsible for the un
just treatment of Mr.McLaurin any
more than 1 could allow the intelli
gent public to suppose I was the au
thor of the editorial written by Mr.
" immediately determined to resign
as soon as 1 could make arrangements
to provide for my family. By Thur
day evening they were made, and I
told several friends of my intention
to leave the Register and stated the
reasons as above. News travels fast.
Possibly the proprietor of theRegister
was in formed of my determination,
and thought it would be a good
stroke to torestall me. At any rate,
when I went to the office Friday af
ternoon I found a note from Mr. Calvo
announing that my services had been
"1- demanded a statement of the
reasons actuatingMr. Calvo, and ob
taincd from him a somewhat ram
bling reply, from which I gather that
his two .ehief grounds of complaint
were may objection to his treatment
of Mr. MicLaurin and my general in
dependence of character, which made
it impossible for me to be a mere
looking glass to reflect his opinions.
If he wants an editor who will always
agree with him and write exactly ac
cording to his ideas he will have hard
work to find him, for it will take an
arobatic mind to keep up with the
shifting wiummsicalities of his im
agnat ion. I never undertook the
task. Those who did were quickly
wornout-hence the many changes in
the editorial chair.
"P~eraps back of all the disagree
mcnt about the treatment of Mr.
McLaurin there are matters of a per
sonal and business nature, which may
have had some influence in bringing
aout the severance of my relations
with the Re :ister. I will not mention
t hemt unless forced to do so, forlIhave
no desire to publicly discuss Mr. Cal
v's private business matters."
