BEWARE OF CAMPAIGN REPORTS,
THEY ARE THE TRICKS OF
A newspaper should either refrain
from discussing politics or then dis.
.ass politics in a manner that its po
sition will not be misunderstood;
there should be no "fence straddling"
dither on issues or for men.
We have endorsed the candidacy
of J. E. Ellerbe for Congress, and our
selection of him was not the result of
;n impulsive conclusion, but it was
airrived at and made after a canvass
of the qualifications and merits of all
she candidates. Mr. Ellerbe is con
ducting his contest in a high and
honorable manner; nothing in his
speeches indicate the scheming poli
tician, and he avoids personalities,
which is so common these days. He
goes before the people in a straight
forward manner and endeavors to
enlighiten them on questions needing
discussion, questions that need the
study of the people and questions
that every voter should familiarize
himrself with. Such is the conduct of
the man we support. Can the same
be said of all of his opponents? Is
it not a fact that the campaign meet
ings have been followed by letters in
the interest of one of his opponents,
a man who has been feeding at the
public crib contirn~ously since 1890?
And some of those letters were r~.f a
obaracter such as the man in vihose
interest they were written, wou'd not
dare to repeat in Mr. Ellerbe's pres
ence. This sort of politics is unfair
and will be repudiated at the ballot
box regardless of the various County
machines now at work manufacturing
the poison of misrepresentation. The
letters are generally written elsewhere
but the names to whom they are ad
dres'sed are furnished at the County
We warn the people of Clarendon
against such methods and will say
that if these letter writers know any
thing against J. E. Ellerbe that should
drive votes away from him, let them
come out like men over their own
signatures in a County paper or meet
Mr. Ellerbe at a campaign meeting
and face him with the accusation.
Bushwhacking tactics are not fair,
and whenever resorted to, should
have the effect of strengthening the
man who is being bushwhacked.
We have known J. E. Ellerbe for
many years, and we know him to be
a gentleman whose private life is
pure and whose business standing is
high. His political career is known.
The people among whom he was
reared paid him a high testimonial
by giving him an almost unanimous
vote in the County primary when he
a as a candidate for the Legislature.
Marion County polls about twice the
white vote of Clarendon and in the
primary alluded to, Mr. Ellerbe
polled all but 111 votes. He was
afterwards sent to the Constitutional
Convention by a very flattering vote.
His opponents are making capital
out of the fact that he was defeated
once for the Senate. Mr. Ellerbe's
opponent at that time was a very
popular man and happened to be
standing for re-election, besides, there
was a local fight in that County about
the formation of a new County. It
is known by every intelligent man
that whenever an acceptable officer
stauds for a second term his advan
tage over an opponent is great and
especially when a local issue figures
extensively in the contest. Mr. El
lerbe's opponents do not take the
trouble to explain these things, but
rest contented with straggling behind
to scatter their seeds of misrepresen
tation. The day is past, we hope,
when a man can be defeated by all
kinds of rumors. A man should be
judged by his private character and
b his competency ad not b hisM
standing among politicians. One of
the best signs of the present contest
is that the people are not going to
the politicians to know who to vote
for; they are endeavoring to lerzi
for themselves who is the best quali
tied candidate, and the little under
handed machinations of a candidate's
opponents will prove fruitless. We
want to see this co::'est carried on as
is befitting the high and honorable
position these candidates seek and it
can only be done by the laying aside
of petty passion and miserable trick
EVANS AND IRBY ON THE CLEVE
We do not see how the -'News and
Courier" can come to the conclusion
that "Irby, Mayfield and Evans on
the Cleveland platform" when it is a
known fact that Mayfield and Evans
were repudiators of Cleveland's policy
and platform. Evans went to Chicago
pledged against Cleveland's platform,
and if we mistake not, both he and
Mayfield were strong advocates of
"16 to 1 or bust." Since the present
contest opened, with no disciple of
Cleveland in the race, Evans and
Mayfield have straddled one of the
planks of Cleveland's platform and
are playing see-saw for the Conserva
tive vote. The idea of John Gary
Evans becoming the champion of
Clevelandism after all that he has
heretofore said is too funny; it is
simply ludicrous to watch him as he
baits his hook for Conservative suck
ers. Why, at the Abbeville meeting,
he went so farias to say "Tillman is
wrong in his tariff position, and if he
sticks to it, Ill be among the first ;to
help down him on it." We imagine
seeing a certain class of politicians,
who hate Tillman with a holy hatred
gulp down what Evans said about
Tillman with as much relish, as if the
words were drops of honey; then
when they realized who it was talk
ing, the dose swallowed became nau
seous and they turned off in disgust
at the speakers brazen effort to fake
them. If Evans is on Cleveland's
platform, then he is not on the plat
form adopted at the last Democratic
convention which nominated William
Jennings Bryan, and Evans, as a
member of that convention, helped
There is one of two things, he was
not sincere when he helped to make
that platform, or he is not sincere
now when he gets on Cleveland's
platform. What has brought about
the change? Was it his failure to get
Tillman's support in the present con
test9 It will be remembered that he
went to Washington to consult Till
man about the Senatorship. Did
Tillman tell him that he would have
to paddle his own canoe? It looks
that way, since Evans has mustered
up the boldness to criticize Tillman's
political attitude, and to talk about
"Tillman is wrong in his tariff posi
tion, and if he sticks to it, I'll be the
first to help down him in it." Never
theless, Evans' play at boldness gives
the rank haters of Tillman hope of a
rift in the political clouds. They like
to listen to such talk, even from
Evans, because they think it is an
>ther spoke out of the Reform wheel,
ad after a while, as spoke after
poke is broken out the entire Re
rorm wagon will come down with a
3rash. The curious part of this whole
business is that when the campaign
pened tIrby and Evans were very
oudmouthed in trying to create the
impression their entering the race
meant the saving of Tillman; that
cLaurin was after defeating Till
man. They found their song failed
to attraat and the people refused to
be lulled by any such music, so a
new tack has been taken and one
yhich will have no more effect, he
cause if in the beginning the syndi
eate of candidates were so solicitous
or Tillman's future, how can they
ow, all at once, become so defiant
is to be among the first to down
ilman if he sticks to his tariff
Everywhere Mayfield goes he gets
the cold shoulder since his miserable
bluff he undertook to play upon Gov
rnor Ellerbe and the contemptible
means he employed to catch the Con
ederate pensioners' votes. The peo
ple are also getting on to Mayfield's
Dispensary scheme and the more he
talks about it the more convinced are
they that he will not do to depend
pon. They think that he is too re
3ent a convert to theganti-Dispensary
idea to be sincere after the conspicu
us Dispensary record he made in
the Legislature. Mayfield had as
much to do with putting the Dispen
gary law on the statute books, that he
is now abusing, as any other man in
the Legislature, and since Judge
Simonton gave the law several kicks,
Mayfield concluded the thing was
dead, and he would be among the
frst to shovel dirt upon its grave, but
the law is right and it will not down
as is seen by Simonton's latest deci
sion and when Congress re-assembles
there will be a federal statute that
will settle the right of the State to
control liquor. If the position May
field takes now with regard to the
Dispensary is correct, he is the wrong
man to be trusted with it. No man
who can tumble and turn about as he
has done can be relied upon.
The "News and Courier" a few
days ago wanted to know "who is
Doctor Strait." Why, he is president
of the Tomato-Fig Syrup Company,
organized by a shrewd Yankee who
had lound out that Doctor Strait
hd saved his salary and breath as
Congressman. This man painted a
beautiful picture of wealth to be pro
cured from his Tomato-Fig Syrup
remedy, and as a further inducement
to Doctor Strait the presidency of
the organization was tendered. The
doctor yielded to the alluring promn
ises of the schemer and went dlown
into his wallet, fished out a goodly
portion of his congressional savings,
turned it over to his tempter and to
day he is still president of the To
mato-Fig Syrup Company with a sad
experience as the income from his

HENRY GEORGE'S DOUBLE.
Candidate Evans in advocating a
direct tax has put himself in a great
big hole and the further he pursues
the subject the more does he drag
the whole in after him. If John
Gary Evans theory is enacted into
law every wi' who owns a foot of
land will h: .- trpay a direct tax to
the United States government upon
a basis of something over one hun
I dred dollars on a thousand dollars
worth of land. Suppose Mr. Evans'
theory was in operation today, our
farmers would be visited by a negro
land assessor who would in the name
of the United States government
place a valuation upon the lands and
then collect the tax. It would give
President McKinley a fine field to
graze his horde of black cattle and
our farmers would be reminded of
the days that caused them many
sleepless nights watching their prop
erty. No, John Gary Evans does not
want direct taxation, although he
says he does; his direct tax song is
the silliest sort of buncombe to divert
the min ds of the people away from
McLaurin's record made in Congress.
Evans, Irby and Mayfield have gone
over the State misrepresentiug MIc
Laurin's position on the tariff ques
tion until the newspapers outside of
the State are wondering if it can be
true that South Carolinians are being
fooled by their arguments.
McLaurin made a record in Con
gress that is far ahead of men who
have served in that body a much
longer time. The tariff as a principle
was opposed by him, but when he
saw the Republican majority would
not listen to appeals against the
measure, like a true and faithful ser
vant of the people, he set about to
prevent the South being fleeced to
enrich the North. McLaurin saw
the manufacturer of cotton goods
protected and his home farmers left
to the mercy of the world. What
did he do? He raised his voice in
eloquent protest against the iniquity
and demanded that the man who
toiled in the broiling sun and sup
plied the manufacturer with his ma
terial should also be protected. He
used an expression which struck
right home with telling effect, it was
this: "I am opposed to protection
in any form, but if the country must
have protection and you will protect
the cotton manufacturer, then in the
name of justice, protect the poor
Southern farmer who-toils in a blaz
ing sun to make the cotton. If the
man that made my shirt is to have
protection, then give the man who
made the cotton to go into the shirt
protection; do not discriminate, but
let the farmer of the South and the
manufacturer of the North stand
upon an equal plane." And for this,
McLaurin is being misrepresented
and abused by the political triumvi
rate who either do not know anything
about the tariff question or they are
purposely endeavoring to mislead the
SENAtTOR .MlLAU'RIN'S SERVICE TO
The man who is sufficiently inter
ested in his country's welfare as to
keep posted is in a position to judge
of the great service Senator McLaur
in rendered the State of South Caro
lina, the fact that it is not appreciated
by some seems strange indeed. We
alude to his speech on "The South
and its Opportunities." The lamented
Grady made a similar speech y-ears
ago and the people of the entire
South gave it their app~roval. Henry
Grady was hailed as the benefactor
of his section-and died mourned and
beloved by every loyal heart in the
South. Years after, another young
enthusiast, J. L. McLaurin filled with
the same hope and animated by the
same desire for good to his own sec
tion made a speech in the halls of
Congress on similar lines. It con
tained not a single world of politics.
but breathed in every line an earnest
and sincere desire to build up and
encourage the development of the
material interests of his own people.
It went out as an official statement of
the actual conditions that obtained
in the South., It was the first instance
of the kind in the halls of Congress
and carried with it the sanction of
that body. It was taken up by the
press of the North almost as a unit,
andl was read by more people than
any other speech ever delivered in
that chamber. This may seem like
an extravagant statement, but it is
none the less true.
This speech has done more for the
material benefit of the South and its
people than &" the legislation of the
past thirty years. No other speech
ever opened up the subject in the
manner selected by Senator McLaur
in, since lhe treated it as a matter- of
business and not as a question of
politics. All the leading commercial
papers of the North printed and com
mented on its disclosures and the
South was discussed all over that see
tion from a purely business point of
view to its great advantage. No
other member of the Senate or House
ever rendered the South such a ser
vice. South Carolina has been espe
cially benefitted through his generous
action and is today reaping the re
ward of his unselfishness. Others
mght have done as well no doubt,
but they did not possess that degree
self denial which would enable them
to forego the opportunity of making
politicalfcapital out of a political
Having done this at a time when
the idea of being chosen Senator
could not have been entertained, this
act cannot be charged to anything
bt pure love of State and section.
Now, what are the people whom he
so unselfishly served going to do in
the coming pr-imar-y? Will they vote
for a man who has been true to their
interests, or will they vote against
him and theieby say to the balance
of the country '"we want none of our
representatives to assist us in our
struggle for material prosperity"?
Every vote cast against Senator
M cLaur-in is a condemnation of his
attempt to) aid the people of this
section. His defeat would be a pub
lic calamity and postpone the natural
and rightful development of our op
portunities for years to come. He
stands today- as the foremost chamn
pio ofourmuch needed develop

his hands? Why not send him back

The inconsistencies in the speeches
of ex-Governor Evans and ex-Senator
Irby at Laurens last Saturday are so
glaring that it would be well to ascer
tain which of the two told the truth
or wiiether the truth was told at all.
Both cannot be correct as they widely
differ. Evans said he was raised by
a Christian mother and when a man
came to him and offered to make
peace, and had he not made friends
he would have been ashamed of him
Irhv said: "He wanted to say he
pitied those who have gone against
Evans because of his making up with
him. It is time the estrangement
was healed. There was no knuckling
on his part, but when a nephew of
Mart Gary asks me to make friends
he was man enough to say yes. It
would have been ungrateful and cow
ardly on his part to have said no, and
he was happy he had the manhood to
say yes, and make friends with Mr
Here we are, Evans at Irby's home
giving as a reason for the renewed
friendship that Irby came to him and
offered to make peace, and following
Mr. Evans, Irby gets up and gives as
his reason for the renewed friendship
that when "a nephew of Mart Gary
asks him to make friends, he was
man enough to say yes." A wide
difference, to be sure, but they do
now "speak as they pass by," is an
assured fact and past "ingratitude" is
supposed to have been buried when
a nephew of Mart Gary asked Irby to
make friends. Wonder if on the vest
of "a nephew of Mart Gary" will be
found any of the red clay of Laurens
County, where he crawled on his
belly to ask his "political daddy,"
Irby, to make friends. Perhaps John
Gary Evans has the best memory
after all, and it was the "daddy" who
went to Aiken and with tears in his
eyes as big as peaches, begged for
giveness for indiscreetly furnishing
the munitions of war that brought
disaster upon - his temporarily for
saken political infant he once hugged
to his bosom and lulled him to sleep
in the big arm chair in the Gover
nor's office. We suppose remorse of
conscience has caused Irby to drown
in the Saluda rivers, "Ingratitude,"
the horse he named for John Gary
Evans, and as soon as he is convinced
that Ben Tillman did not give out
the Matthews interview, he will
drown "Treachery" in the raging
waters of the Saluda, too. Irby has
made friends with Evans because
Evans, a nephew of Mart Gary, came
to him and asked him to make friends
and Evans made friends with Irby,
not because'.he wanted Irby's help,
but because Irby asked him to make
TIlE STATE ON TOP.
The "original package" dealers
wvere struck with the unexpected last
Saturday when Judge Simonton's
definition of an original package was
made known in the shape of a judi
eial decision. The decision in
question was the outcome of
a .number of cases brought
by various foreign liquor dealers
against the State constabulary, and
after so many decisions encouraging
the flooding of South Carolina wit h
unlicensed booze, the last was a
great disappointment to those con
templating running rum shops all
over the country in opposition to the
We do not think the question of
'what is an original package" is set
tled by any means, for even the latest
decision leaves room for more test
2ases. Judge Simonton, however, in
bis dlecree just handed down holds
that wvhen the original package ar
rives within the State and: reaches
the buyer's hands, the interstate com
merce ceases anud the police power
begins. A cask, barrel, case or box
>f liquor cannot be opened and sold
tn this State, but if sold it must be
sold as it was origin ally shipped.
F'or instance, if a liquor dealer re
2eives a1 cask of half pint flasks of
iquor, he is not allowed to open that
eask and sell a single flask, but he
aan sell the whole cask. If, however,
the liquor is shipped originally in
separate half pint flasks-each flask
a separate package, the same can be
awfully sold, providing the revenue
laws have been complied with. In
our opinion each one of these separ
ate packages, be they half pints or
gallons. must have a reveuu stamp
upon them the same as a package of'
cigarettes. If a liquor dealer miust~
have his liquor shipped in separate
bottles and then have those bottles
stamped, it strikes us the freight and
stamps, not to count breakage, will
make the cost so great that successful
competition with the Dispensary
would be almost impossible. The
objectionable feature to the decision
is that it leaves great room for those
who have no regard for law to have
the stuff shipped, in cases or barrels
and violat2 the law; they will have a
few bottles to arrive in accordance
with the law, and then it will be al
most impossible to detect them when
a violation of the law takes place.
There is another feature that should
be considered in connection with this
question; in~ order for an "original
package" dealer to sell by the eask,
barrell or box he must be provided
with a revenue wholesale license if
the cask, barrel or box contains as
much as five gallons. Judge Simon
ton concludes his decree as followvs:
"Considering all these cases and
the others quoted in argument, it
appears that the original package is
the package delivered by the im
porter to the carrier at the initial
place of shipment in the exact condi
tion in which it wvas shipped. If in
single bottles shipped singly, or if in
packages of three or more securely,
fastened together and marked, or if
in a box, barrel, erate or other recep
table, the single bottle in the one
instance, the three or more bottles in
another instance, the barrel, box,
crate or other receptacle, respectiveliy
constitute the original package. If
sold or delivered it must be sold or
delivered as shipped and received.
If the package be broken after such
delivery it comes within the police
regulations of the State, and any
sale or delivery ini such case is unlaw
Candidate Mayfield is nothing if
not original. He is not satisfied with
trying to hoo-doo the Confederate
pensioners, but he has struck out to
fish in another streani of influence.
He has baited his hook this time with
a prohibition circular, and he hopes
i to catch preachers on it. Nearly
every white preacher in the State has
received a circular from MIavtiel set
ting forth his opposition to liquor,
but there is not a line in those cireu
lars setting forth the amount of liquor
candidate Mavfield drinks himself.
Mayfield may be sharp, but if he does;
not know it, we will tell him he is not
sharp enough to fool the preacliers,
for as a rule, preachers are the
shrewdest kind of people, and if Mr.
Mavfield will make a horse trade with
one of them, we believe he will be
come convinced that preachers are
not easily gulled.

I have read your editoriatl in whicb von

of Congressional candidates, and as a voter
I endorse your chcice and what you have
said of Mr. Ellerbe. I believe Mr. Ellerbe
is a man true to the sentiments expressed
in his speech at Manning, and I believe
he would scorn the tricks resorted to by
some of his opponents.
One report about Mr. Ellerbe was toil
privately by Mr. Norton, that some time
ago Ellerbe went into futures and lost
heavily, and now his friends have brought
him out for Congress that he might make
some of his losses back. I am told that
some of our court house officials are using
this as a means of taking votes away fro u
Ellerbe for Norton. I have voted for these
officials, and I am'sorry they are lending
themselves to such contemptible means,
but instead of helping Mr. Norton, they are
only injuring their own intluence with the 1
people. These County officials who are 1
trying to injure Ellerbe by forcing Norton I
upon us have forgotten this is an age of I
No, Mr. Editor, the time has been when I
votes could be turned with such stuff, but I
thank God it has passed. A candidate I
should stand on his own merits, and not
try to build himself up on the demerits of
others-a gentleman would not stoop to
such methods. In my opinion it woo!d be
nor graceful in those wha aspire to a seat
in Congress to resign the public offices they
now hold, so th-it their successors may come
into this same primary and not put the
people to the expense of another election,
should Comptroller-General Norton oi Soli
citor Johnson be elected.
I heard a mn illustrate the present
Senatorial race. He said he was walking
along the road and a good sized dog came
ranni:g along followed by several smaller
ones and as fast as one of the little fellows
would turn the big dog loo-c, another
would grab him, He said that it reminded
him of Irby, Evans and Mayfield, who are
jumping on McLaurin, but the big dog
goes right on and will reach his destina
tion in good time while the little dogs lay
