THE DAWNING OF POLITICAL PEACE.
The great political battle has been
fought and won. The people have in
loud acclaim endorsed Governor El
lerbe's appointment of John L. Mc
Laurin as United States Senator.
There was a great meaning in the
result of the contest; it sealed the
political doom of professional politi
cians, it smashed the fetters of fac
.tionalism and it proved the people
can be trusted.
The election of John McLaurin is
the keystone in the bridge of recon
ciliation; the white men of South
Carolina are now in solid array, ready
to fight for a common cause and no
man can divide them by appealing to
passion'and faction. Hereafter men
will be selected for public place, not
for their intensiveness;r but for their
qualifications and merit; the re
sult will be, that our polities will be
cleaner and purer, and that it will be
an honor worth achieving to be se
lected by the people to be commis
sioned with a public trust.
There are still some who would
like to blow up the embers of faction
al division, but they won't succeed,
for the people have put their seal of
condemnation upon it.
Now let us all, not with a lip ser
vice, but with sincere hearts, stand
together. Let there be a sentiment
that he who appeals to pas".ion and
arouses strife, is dangerous and must
be put down.
Let us all put aside our prejudices.
give credit where it is deserving, hold
up the bands of our public servants,
encourage them to a full discharge of
their duty. When Congress as
sembles the people of South Carolina.
can feel that in Senator McLamin,
they have a representative who was
elected, not as a Conservaive, not as
as Reformer, but as a Democrat who
had been tried and-jound faithful to
his trust. He is not the representa
tive of.a factioni, but he is the repre
sentative othe people of South Caro
M adwe feel sure that his record
will not be blotted, but that it will be
as clear as a noonday sun, and thai
his name will be written high upot
the tower of fame as a true, broad
minded and fearless tribune.
WE PROP'HESIED CORRECTLY.
It is a source of real gratificatior
to us to be able to recall what Johr
Gary Evans said in his speech al
Manning: "Appelt has said that ]
won't get one hundred votes in Clar
endon, I say Appelt does not carry
the votes of Clarendon in his breeches
pocket." In the first place, Governor
Evans misquoted us and we told him
so after the meeting. What we did
say was the combination "Irby and
Evans together would not get one
hundred votes in Clarendon." We
said it because we knew the people
to be capable df judging and appre.
ciating true merit; we knew that all
of the misrepresentations of McLaur
in's record could not swerve our peo
pe and we further k-new that this
people were heartily disgusted with
the persistent attempts on the part ol
politicians to keep up a constant irri
tation. The people of Clarerdon by
a large majority, allied themselves
with the Reform faction, because they
knew there was a festering sore upor
the body politic of the State, then
the leaders of the Reform factior
represented certain principles whicl
the people wanted enacted into law
The main principles and objects o:
the Reform faction have been accom
pshed and there is no need now tt
keep pounding the opposition simply
to get offie-.
The time has come and the recent
election shows it, that factions are no
longer a controlling power; that to I
single out a man in a crowd who is I
actively supporting an opponent, and
appeal to prejudice by saying that I
man "does carry the vote of Claren
don in his breeches pocket" is a poli
tician's trick the people ignore. When
Evans made the remark that we do
not "carry the vote of Clarendon in
our breeches pocket" he knew full
well neither by word nor act have we
ever tried to create such an impres
sion and what he said was a fruitless
effort to drive votes away from Mc
Laurin by arousing a prejudice
against us. He failed.
It is a delightful pleasure to inform
Governor Evans that our estimate of
Clarendon was correct and we can
further say that had a full vote been
polled McLaurin would not have lost
one hundred votes in the Co'unty,
and we take this opportunity to
thank the good people of Clarendon
for the handsome endorsement they
gave THE Tras in both Senatorial
and Congressional contest; having
received such a hearty endorsement
we feel that it would be impertinent
on our part were we now to attempt
to use any influence for or against
either candidate in the second con
WE ARE HANDS OFF.
Our choice for Congress, Hon. J.
E. Ellerbe, failed to receive a suflici
ent number of votes to put him in
the second race, nevertheless, he has
every reason to feel proud of the vote
he did receive. Had Clarendon
polled her usual vote, Mr. Ellerbe
would have, without a doubt, been in
the second race with Mr. Johnson,
but as it now stands the second con
test will be between Johnson and
Our readers have had an opportun
ity to judge of both of these candi
dates, therefore, we will not through
these columns indicate which of the
two is our personal choice; but as
we regard it the duty of every citizen
to vote we will on the day of election
go to the polls and cast our individ
ual vote for one of the two. Friends
of both of the candidates have called
upon us to solicit our support, and
our reply has been "we are hands off."
We have determined on this course
and we intend to faithfully carry it
We regret exceedingly the neces
sity for a second race, for the reason
the people are heartily tired of so
much politics and so many elections;
at this season of the year the farmers
are busy harvesting their crops and
preparing them for market,and under
the circumstances we look for a very
light vote all over the district. Re
member the contestants in the second
primary are General James Norton
and Solicitor J. M. Johnsen, both are
asking the suffrages of the people
and of the two all that we will say is,
vote for the man of your choice.
OUR NEW SENATOR.
In the election of J. Harry Lesesne
to the State Senate, the ycple of
Clarendon can boast of ha ving the
youngest Senator in the State. We
realize that Mr. Lesesne goes to the
Senate under a great disadvantage,
lack of experience and only one ses
sion to work in, however, we sincerely
hope that he will take an interest in
the work before him and in the short
time be able to do something for the
Mr. Lesesne takes a deep interest
in educational matters and if he can
have enacted a law which will im
prove our free school system, and
does nothing else, the people wilt be
repaid for honoring him. Our young
Senator will have some advantage
which is not always the good fortune
of a new legislator, that is, an expe
rience in County affairs. Mr. Lesesne
has had occasion to examine as grand
jury expert the books of the ,County
officials, and he has been upon the
school examining board, has been
connected with the tax collecting dle
partment and the Sheriff's office, all
of which puts him in a position to be
conversant with County affairs and he
should know just what needs his d
It will be his duty, ansi we are
satisfied his pleaaure, to give his
County affairis hiis first and special
efforts, anirwe hope he will .be able
to dvise some plan by which our
County affairs can be more econom
ically administered without reducing
the efficiency of the service.
Governor Ellerbe has given notice
to remove all of the State Constables
from the cities and towns. He has
come to the conclusion to rely upon
Ithe municipal authorities to enforce
the Dispensary law and thus save to
the people the enormous expense of
keeping up the constabulary. Wheth
er the towns will carry out the wishes
of the Governor remains to be seen,
and it also remains to be seen if the
Governor's action is founded in wis
dom. We realize the fact that under
the hampered condition of affairs the
Constables are practically helpless to
enforce the law and their mainten
ance is a heavy drain upon the tax
payers. Governor Ellerbe is acting
for what he believes the best inter
ests of the people and we hope the
towns and cities will give him a
hearty co-operation. There is one
thing certain, the removal of
the Constables will carry with
it the allaying to a very
great extent, the irritation and strife
Ithat has been existing ever since the
constabulary came on, and very many
who opposed the law on account of
the Constables will now put aside
their opposition and lend their influ
nce toward enforcing the law.

Col. John L. M. Irby in an inter
riew says there will be trouble when I
1e and Tillman meet. In our opinion
his threat of the feather-legged
statesman will be disappointing to
hose who expect to hear of a person-.
11 collision between the two. A man
who nieans to dl personal violence is
not likely to post a notice of his in- 1
teutious, and a man of Irby's compo
sition -.ill hardly do what his words
imply. Irby complains of Tillman
going into his section of the State to
make speeches and to interfere in the
Senatorial contest after professing to
be "hands off." We have been
watching Tillman's movements in this
State since the campaign opened and
we have vet to see where there is any
foundation !or Irby's claim. If Till
man said anything about Irbv, we
have not seen it, but then, Irby wants
an excuse to relieve himself of the ac
cumulation of gas, and he has select
ed the most conspicuous object he
can iind. If Colonel Irby will take a
double lose of Doctor Strait's Toma
to-Fig Syrup, followed by a few pills
made up of the votes of Charleston,
Clarendon, Marion, and other Coun
ties, we think he will get cured of his
bad case of chagrin.
The campaign promise of prosper
ity has in a measure struck the wheat
growers of the West. but a little in
vestigation shows that the Republi
can party had nothing to do with it.
The European crop of cereals
has failed and in India there
is a famine. This condi
tion has created an unusual demand
for American breadstuff' which
naturally forces prices up and the
farmers of the West are reaping the
benefit. The farmers of the South,
however, are not getting this benefit,
but on the contrary, are suffering
from it; they buy their breadstuffs
and must pay high prices for it, while
their cotton is not bringing a propor
tionate price. Cotton continues to
go down in the face of a short crop
and the necessaries of life grown else
where and all manufactured articles
made at the North are going up
The defeat of John Gary Evans
and John. L. .M. Irby is followed with
the silliest display of soreness we have
ever heard of. Both of them are act
ing like children by making grimaces
at those wb" could not be induced to
support them. Irby wants to whip
somebody and Evans swears that Till
man shan't play in his yard any more.
Poor Tillman is damned if he
does, and he is damned if he don't,
but we will wager a muscovey drake
and a game cock that when Tillman
returns from the North, where he is
speaking in behalf of true Democ
racy, the "rattlesnake notice" will not
have to be given, for Irby's outburst
against Tillman sounds very much
like he is seeing snakes now.
McLaurin is elected by over twelve
thousand majority. The people are
happy and the friends of Irby and
Evans are weeping and wailing; Irby
is attem'pting to tind solace in utter
ing wild and incoherent threats
against Tiliman, and Evans is finding
consolation in imagining that the
people did not know what they were
doing when they voted for 3McLaurin.
It may be safely said that the result
of this election is the passing of poli
ticians of the Evans-Irby school and
that South Carolina will hereafter
give no heed to such.
We take pleasure in congratulating
the people of Clarendon for the hand
some endoisement given to Senator
John L. MIcLaurin, and we know the
Senator himself is proud of this
County. We hope that some day in
the near future the people of this
county will have the pleasure of see
ing and hearing their favorite repre
