PROGRESS NOT TO BE BAFFLED BY GHOST
Solicitor J. M. Johnson of ]
Marion has a letter in the News
and Courier of last Friday in
which he volunteers advice to
the Democrats of this S1 ate to
beware of Republicans. Mr. I
Johnson's letter must remind his i
readers of the story of Rip Van J
Winkle who went off into the 1
forests and slept for twenty I
years, and when he woke up he :
did not realize that times and
conditions had changed. Ac
cording to Johnson's reasoning
we should cling to the ideas
which brought on the war be
tween the States, and because 1
our grandfathers carried corn in <
one end of the sack, and a rock i
in the other, we, out of rever- <
ence for them, should do the 1
same. Tlre trouble with the <
political beneficiaries of this de- (
cade, is, they fear the result of I
innovations just as the fogy mer- 1
chant fears -he effects of up-to I
date business methods. That ]
class of office holders who have
grown old in politics know, that
if progressive blood is infused
into the body politic, their places
at the official trough will be taken
by others, and they will be reck
oned among the "has-beens."
Watch it. wherever you see a
man who has held office a very
long time, he will hunt all about
for scare-crows to frighten the i
people away from anything
which might tend to bring new'
men to the front. This was true
in 1886 when Tillman sounded
his Reform bugle at Bennetts
ville; the office-holders and
the newspapers began to beat
tom-toms and all manner of fussi
creating things to scare the peo-]
ple away from Tillman's teach
ings. When they found that the
people were inclined to listen to
Tillman, and showed signs oft
having a say so in politics, then. 1
came the cry "hush you'll split
the party," at the same time<
these very men who were trying 1
to quiet the people were search-1
ing all through their dictionaries
for language severe and vile
enough to apply to Tillman, and
those whose independence of
thought and action would not be
frightened by them.
The newspapers abused Till- s
man day in and day out; they
charged him 'with trying to di
vide the solid South, with Ma
honeism, with being in league
with the Radicals and with every
bad motive their ingenious writ-i
ers could imagine or invent. The]
office holders and other politi
cians were equally as intolerant;
at last, Tillman marshalled his]
host and from the mountains to1
the sea his march, while obstruct
ed at every turn, and even his
life was often jeopardized, was
triumphant. Tillmanism, which 1
meant the taking hold of more<
progressive ideas and methods<
swept the State, and with it new]
men came to the front in politics. 3'
Ten years have rolled around <
since then, and many changes
have taken place, what answered 1
for 1890 has been replaced with t
things more modern; this is not
only true of politics, but in all
spheres of life. The methods of 1
doing business ten years ago will
not answer for today. The coun
try has grown; war has created1
conditions which must be met: we
can not, and keep up with pro
gress, legislate for the citizen-i
ship of ten years ago, the people t
of today with their present needs t
must be looked after; the past
must take care of itself, and it is
our duty to look well to the pres
ent and as far as possible to the
When we undertake to hold up s
the wheels of progress to decide j
the question of right or wrong in t
the matter relating to the gov- s
ernent's foreign policy, we are t
simply theorizing, and wasting i
valuable timne. The government I
has begun a policy which we are i
unable to change, and no amount ~
of argument or moralizing on our
part can bring back to life the i
Fillipinos killed in the Philip- I
pines; neither can argument or I
obstruction put back into the d
treasury the money spent in the s
taking of the Philippines-this I
has been done, and with it new I
conditions have come, and we I
must grapple with them as they 1
A few years ago the South was s
without manufacturing indus
tries, this section depended upona
agriculture, the factories were
at the North and East; the Southt
was opposed to the government's<
protective policy, the North and
East because of their manufac-1
turing industries favored it. t
Why? Protection added wealth
to manufacturing sections. Con
ditions are fast changing, the tI
factories are coming South to bec
near the fields, and in the past I
few years, millhons of dollars
have been invested in cottonc
manufactures, this has inducedt
:bat we are now rated as a mi
ifacturing section. The busi
iess men of the South, who were
:aised in a low tariff school, real
zing the aid that protection af
orded to manufacturing at the
North, have become, converted
;o the protection doctrine because
:.heir ir cerests have out grown a
ow tariff governmental policy.
True, protection is a theory of
,he Republican party, yet some
f the staunchest Democrats that
?ver raised a voice in Congress
were strong advocates of that
theory. Samuel Randall the
greatest floor leader the Demo
-rats ever had in Congress was
Senator Tillman has always
)een a Protectionist, his brother,
Ihe lamented George D. Tillman
idiculed the Democratic free
rade policy. We mention these
natters incidentally, merely to
;how that it is not unusual for
nen who think, to hold views st
ariance with their party asso
iates. Senator Hoar of Massa
hussetts a Republican, fought
?resident McKinley's foreign
>olicy with all his might and he
vas about the only Republican
,ho differed with his party asso
iates on the expansion question.
.qorgan of Alabama, the brain
est of Southern Senators, is a
ree lance in the United States
3enate; on several questions
ie fought his Democratic col
eagues. Men who can be guid
,d by the merits of a question are
tatesmen. Senator Thomas F.
Bavard of Delaware a Democrat
ind a noble friend of the South,
when party spirit was higher
han ever before in the history
>f this govenment, in his speech
n the Senate on the occasion of
younting the electoral votes in
he Tilden and Hayes contest,
liffered with his party associates,
mud as a result he was threatened,
nisrepresented, and maligned,
yut it did not swerve him from
s conscientious idea of duty.
"1 may not read other men's hearts
Lnd know what they have felt, nor can
[ measure the apprehension of personal
langer felt by the honorable Senator.
:t seems to me incredible. Fear, if I
iad it, had been the fear of doing wrong
n this great juncture of-public affairs,
lot the fear of consequences of doing
ight. Had there been this intimida
;ion tenfold repeated to which the Sen
Ltor has alluded, and of which I have
io knowledge, I should have scorned
nyself had I hesitated one moment in
ny onward march of duty on this sub
' Hate's yell. or envy's bliss, or folly's bray'
hat are they to a man who, in the face
>-events such as now confront us, is
loing that which his conscience dic
ates to him to do?"
Continuing this eminent states
nan who rendered South Caro
ina invaluable, service in 1876,
" Mr. President, in the course of my
luty here' as a representative of the
ights of others, as a chosen and sworn
>ublic servant, I feel that I have no
ight to give my individual wishes,
>reudices, interests, undue influence

>e to commit a breach of trust in the
>owers confided to me. It is true I was
:hosen a Senator by a majority only, but
lot for a majority only. I was chosen
>y a party, but not for a party. I repre
ent all the good people of the State
hich has sent me here. In my office
s a Senator I recognize no claim upon
ny action in the name and for the sake
if party. The oath I have taken is to
upport the constitution of my country's
~overnment, not the flat of any political
rganization, even could its will be as
An ordinary politician would
iot have dared to raise his voice
n defiance of a majority of his
party associates, but a statesman
who feels his country's interests
it heart, dares not only defy his
arty associates, but he courts
hie verdict of a reasoning con
tituency. Defeat will not swerve
statesman from a position con
cientiously taken, for he knows
hat Right like Truth may get
rushed for a time, but it will
ome forth again, only brighter.
But it is not every new idea ad
ranced that means the formation
>f a Republican party in this
state. The politicians in con
rol are endeavoring to create
hat impression, banking on the
>rejudice against the name "Re
mblican" and the negro vote ;
hey seem to forget that the
'nigger in the woodpile" busi
iess has been worked for votes

ad the people listened to men
ike J. M. Johnson in 1890 we
could to this day be frightened
nto voting for men whose
~randfather was a General,
enator or Governor : such
man as Tillman would
till be turning fence co::-ners at
he end of a row. The politi
~ians'of the Johnson school ap
ose any and all measures ema
ating from the Republican par
y because they have, as Mr.
ohnson says, "an everlasting
~rudge against them." Here is
he milk in the coccanut, be
ause Mr. Johnson and his kind
iae "an everlasting grudge
gainst them," right and reason,
'hanged conditions and public in
erest,is to be thrust aside to grat
+ haortof spirit. Tf a mina
ure is proposed by a Republican,
vhich will inure to our advance
ment and prosperity, we must
spurn it for no other reason than
that Mr. Johnson and his kind
have '-an everlasting grudge."
It was just such men That told
us when we were getting rest
less under those in power prior
to 1890 to "hush, you'll split the
Iparty," and when we asserted
ourselves and put Tillman for
ward, friend Johnson and his
kind did the splitting and ran an
Independent ticket, and made co
alitions with negrc -s too.
We are opposed to the forma
tion of two white .parties in this
State, but we are still more op
posed to allowing a few leaders
to make the Democratic primary
such a close corporation that
none can participate in it unless
he gets the sanction of the cho
sen few.' We want every white
man allowed the privilege of ex
ereising his own judgment, that
lie may advocate any theory of
government or policy he sees fit,
and if he honestly believes his
party in error on any ques
tion, to have the right to go be
fore his people in his party pri
mary and say so. This is freedom
that a white man deserves. The
only danger of ever getting two
parties in this State lies in the
people submitting to the trick
ery and arbitrary methods of
unscrupulous politicians. Why,if
things continue at the rate they
are going now, the politician who
can control the State convention
can elect himself to any office he
wants. All that he has to do, is
to ascertain the views of his op
ponent and then have a platform
adopted opposing those views;
then, to make a man eligible to
I participa-:e in the primary, re
quire a pledge of endorsement to
the trick-made platform. If an
honorable man happens to be his
opponent and is opposed to views
contained in that platform adop
ted for the purpose of ex
cluding . an opponent, he is
precluded from running by the
pledge. The only way there
fore to keep our party intact, is
to let the primary be open to any
white man who will sign a pledge
to "abide the result and support
the nominees." ' This is the only
pledge we have ever had, and it
is the only one necessary. A
man taking this pledge can advo
cate expansion, gold, silver,
trusts, prohibition or any policy
of government his conscience
dictates, and the voters will be
the jury to decide his case. The
piedge is merely a waiver on his
part, of his right of appeal to a

The Confederate Flag in Samoa.
From'the South Pacific-from Samoa
--comes a curious, pathetic story of de
votion to the "Lost Cause," and even
the least susceptible reader must. won
der who the unknown ex-Confederate
was and what was his history.
The Samoans are experts at rowing
and sailing-from which fact Bougain
ville, the French discoverer, called
their country the Navigators' Islands -
and since the advent of the white man
every Samoan boat must have its flag.
Just what the flag represents is not so
important a question.
Sitting in the cool of his porch over
looking .the bay one afternoon during
his term as Land Commissioner, ex
Chief Justice Chambers of Samoa saw a
boat apprcaching the shore flying a flag
the sight of which struck him at once
with peculiar interest. It was none
other than the Stars and Bars of the
Southern Confederacy. What could it
be doing, wondered he, in the South
Pacific-and so long after Appomattox?
He determine-i to learn the history of
the flag and get possession of it.
But, meeting the boat as it landed, he
found the owner by no means willing to
part with his flag. The offer of the
"American chief" to buy it was
promptly though very politely declined.
Then the Justice tried a little diplo
macy: he took the boatman into a store
and bough t for him a bolt of calico and
then a kit of mackerel-which delight
ed the Samoan, to whom they were lux
uries. But the native still insisted that
he could not part with his flag.
" It would not be right for-me to give
it to you," said he, in such a ::anner as
to show that some deep feelinlg was in
"But wh~y? Where did you get it?
And why do you value it so highly?"
asked Mr. Chambers.
" Well, I will tell you," answered the
Samoan. 'A long time agro a man
came to Samoa from -far off ill America
-where you came from. He was not
a sailor, but told me he had been a sol
dier He was my friend, anid lived at
my house. But after a while he got
sick, and one day he said to me:
"' Tasi, :.ook in my bag ther-e and get
out my flag, and put it up on the wall
where I can see it.
" I did so, and he would lie there and
look at it and look at it. Several days
afterward he grew worse. He called
me to him and said:
"' Tasi, am going to die. I am far
away from my home and m~y people.
This flag if all I have in the world; you
have been my friend; I give it to you.
Keep it as long as you live. Don't give
it to anybody-and whatever you do,
don't you ever let a Yankee have it.'
"No, my chief, I cannot part with~
this flag-not till I die."-Saturday
