WILL THE PEOPLE APPROVE?
The white people of South
Carolina cannot fail to see the
meaning of the action of what
purports to be the action of the
State Executive Committee, in
adopting a resolition denounc
ing Senator McLaurin and de
manding his resignation. Of
course Senator McLaurin will
not pay any attention to star
chamber proceedings. The com
mittee is coimposed of one man
from each county elected by
their respective county conven
tions, but the committee which
adopted the resolutions was
made up of only a portion of the
elected members, and the others
were substitutes. The call was
to arrange for the primary in
the seventh Congressional dis
trict to fill the vacancy caused
by the death of Dr. J. W. Stokes;
there w'as not the slightest sus
picion that Senator Tillman
would attend the committee
meeting and call for action
against Senator McLaurin. Sen
ator Tillman, by virtue of his
being a member of the national
committee is a member of the
State commit.tee, and it is the
first time he has ever attended
one of its meetings. Had it been
known that such a high handed
.outrage was contemplated a full
committee of the regular elect
ed members would have been
present, and probably the re
sult would have been otherwise.
It was just such snap judg
ment tactics that brought on the
revolution of 1890. The conven
tion which nominated Hagood
was called for another purpose,
and when certain politicians coun
ted noses and found they could
succeed, they run roughshod over
the purpose of the convention and
made the nomination. The peo
ple grew restless from that day
until they rose up and hurled
from power the perpertrators of
If we approve of this commit
tee's action, do not let us grum
ble if the committee makes a
rule, designating what man we
shall vote for; if it were to do so,
we should only be getting our
deserts for permitting politicians
to go unrebuked when they un
dertake to throttle the people.
If McLaurin has not voted in
accordance with the wishes of
the people, let the people rebuke
him by voting against him, but
give him the chance to defend his
course before the people whose
servant he is. The executive
committee did not elect McLau
rin, and they have no right to
demand his resignation. Sena
tor Tillman admitted that Mc
Laurin would pay no attention
to the resolution and he knew
the reason why. But Senator
Tillman wanted the resolutions
to go through,hoping thereby to
cripple McLaurin's progress in
the fight for freedom of thought,
speech and action he is making.
The object of the resolutions
is to influence the comting
State convention to adopt such
a pledge that any man dis
agreeing with Tillman on public
questions shall not be permitted
to discuss his views in the prim
ary, thus making. our primary
system a close corporation with
none allowed to enter who have
not Tillman's sanction, and if
successful, bossism will levy on
us blackmail as well as taxes.
We joined the Tillman move
ment to put down this very con
dition; and now when we find
our leader who has grown fat
in office, today a stockholder and
director in a big corporation, un
dertaking to stifle free speech
and free thought we feel that the
time has come for another rev
olution to strike off the shackles
of political slavery that an arro
gant and tyrannical leader is
leading us into.
The action of the State Demo
cratic Executive Committee last
Thursday night can not meet
with the approval of the people.
It was a piece of intolerant ty
ranny which should be rebuked,
Those partisans were drunk with
power, and the few politicians on
the committee undertook to do
that which the Representatives
of the people refused to do. The
committee's action if not rebuk
ed will amount to the destruction
of harmony in our State. When
a few partisans can so control
party action that the people are
not to be trusted with the settle
ment of public issues, then we
may as well do away with a free
government and place a monarch
over us. Senator Tillman open
ly declared at Gaffney that he
would oppose action looking to
wards keeping McLaurin out of
Ahe primary, he further recog
nized McLaurin's Democracy
when he wanted to contest for
his'seat in the primary with Mc
Laurin. Then how he could
have advocated the adoption of
those infamous resolutions is be
yond our comprehension. Till
man says that McLaurin is no
longer a Democrat and insinuates
very strongly that McLaurin
sold himself to the .Republican
party. Tillman has never at
tempted to produce any proof,but
has relied upon making the as
srtion. John Lowdnes Mc
Laurin has been in the United
States Senate for nearly one
term. He and Tillman were
elected in opposition to trusts,
monoplies and combines, today
we see the name of Senator Till
man, published as one of the
directors in a five million dollar
corporation, chartered in the
State 'of New Jersey. and we
also see the name of his favorite
candidate to succeed McLaurin,
connected with a3

; In the North and
Northwest to engraft upon its
old time doctrines new theories,
which make it hybrid in charac

existing elsewhere than in the

handicapped has suffered disas

The intelligent business men
of the South have not fallen into
line under the banner of this
Populistic democracy, and after
two defeats have openly revolted
and proclaimed their purpose to
rehabilitate the party. This is
considered treason by the Bryan
ist leaders, and in their efforts
to silence this dissatisfaction in
the ranks they denounce all who
do not agree with theim as rena
gades and Republicans. In the
their blind zeal they tauntingly
denominate the Democracy of
the business men as "Commer
cial Democracy", and declare it
is utterly at 'variance with the
principles of true Democracy.
They attempt to stifie argument,

There is then a factional con
festin the Democratic party of the
South, the one faction striving
to preserve the Democratic party
as at present organized with
Populism and Socialism its main
doctrines, the other seeking to
eliminate from it these political
heresies and rehabilitate it upon
the broad and progressive busi
ness principles of the Democratic
party of the South which made it
victorious in the past. Upon the
outcome of this factional contest
in the party the future growth
and prosperity of the South
mainly depends. The progress
ive wing of the Southern De
mocracy favors -policies which
will enure to the upbuilding of
the South in her material and
industrial interests, and such as
are in harmony with existing in
* dustrial conditions. They favor
expansion, ship subsidies proper
ly guarded and all other public
measures, which will be beneficial
to the whole country and which
will especially confer upon the
South incalculable benefits. It is
true these measures are advocated
by the Republican party, the ques
tion is, shall Southern Democ
racy be bereft of all its principles
and doctrines, and degenerate
* into a political mob of opponents
and obstructionists? The fact
is, during the last ten years the
Democratic party in running off
after strange political gods has
permitted the Republican party
to appropriate all of its progres
sive policies and carry them out
in their administration of public
affairs. And as long as Democ
racy is used as a means of ele
vating certain men to office, and
of subserving the ends of certain
interests, it will continue to be
a party without policies, and can
never hope again to administer
What we need in the South is
an unmixed progressive Democ
racy,-a party of ideas and poli
cies,-an organization controlled
by the people and not by a few
leaders, and a Democracy which
is founded upon broad practical
business as well as political
principles. When the party is
put upon this plane it will again
command the confidence of the
entire Southermn people, and en
joy a chance of victory in a
Presidential election. The North
ern Democrats have latterly
controlled the platfoo n and
diestiny of the Natior:al Demo
cratic party. The Southern wing
of it has been nothing but a
-voting appendage. Most of the
votes in the Electoral College
come from the South, and its
people should have a controlling
voice inl shaping its course and
policies. When this is done, and
the party is rehabilitated upon
broad and progressive lines, it
will again become a par-ty of

An Error in Tactics.
In speaking of the action of the South
Carolina state executive committee in
denouncing McLaurin and asking his
resignation the Atlanta Constitution
says that it was a tactical mistake and
will give MeLaurin a following which
he could gain in no other way. It also
says that it will give McLaurin the
chance 'to go before the people as a
democrat who has been unfairly treated.
This will mean the support of that large
class which always stands ready to
help the man under pressure as against
the strength of intrenched power.
The Constitution is right. Real dem
ocracy means fair play and an equal
chance before the people. The South
Carolina state committee has usurped or
attempted to usurp the power of the
people. They have said practically
that there is no use of the party pri
mary; there is no use of the people;
the state committee can and will decide
all these questions, though they prop
erly belong to the people. The action
of the South Carolina committee is re
pugnant to the basic principles of dem

An Appeal to Reason by T. Larry Gantt.
Before the meeting of the Demo
cratic party in Kansas City last year,
I wrote in the Spartanburg Free
Lance, a paper at that time owned and
edited by Mr. T. B. Thackston, several
letters, over my own name, arguing
that it would be political suicide for
our party to renominate Mr. Wmn. J.
Bryan for the presidency, I also urged
the importance of the convention adopt
ng a broad and liberal platform, which
would heal the wounds in the member
ship of the party and unite all demo
rats against our common enemy, the
reublican party. I also contended
that the acquisition by the United
States of the Philippine Islands, thus
securing for our country a permanent
foothold in the East, would do more
than all else combined to develop and
enrich the South, and that this polie'y
would be especially beneficial to both
the cotton producers and the cotton
manufacturers in opening new markets
for our great Southern staple and the
products miade therefrom. I insisted
that the annexation of those islands
would force the opening of the Nica
raguan canal, as both a commercial
and a war necessity, and with the com
pletion of this great international
waterway, the prosperity, growth and
enrichment of the seaboard States
would be ohenomena!. I contended
that it worli be folly for the democratic
party to again enchain its national
stanard bearers with a bimetallic
plank in the plaiformn, for the financial
issue had been irre ?ocably and eternally
settled, and it was a waste of words
and energy to reopen it. In my letter
in the Free Lance I contended that the
democratic conventier should adopt a
platform in keeping with the changed
condition of affairs ir. the country and
get out of those old. political -" in

our infamous laws that tax the people
to keep in idleness deserters and camp

instituted in our new possession and the
high handed corruption of the party

will furnish to the democrats abundant
material from which they can frame a

no aspiration for public office, and there

that I would accept or have. I have
permanently retired from journalism
for good and all. I am now a farmer,
I live on my farm, and intend to follow
that avocation for the remainder of my
days. I have always stood by and bat
tied for the cause of the farmer and
laboring classes, and advised what I
honestly believed to be their best
interests. And in the series of letters
which I shall write on the political sit
uation, I will advise that policy whici
I believe will result in the upbuildine
of our own State and Southland, in the
honor and glory of our common coun
try, and which will promote the en
lightenment, the happiness and pros
perity of the whole people.
It is not my mission or my purpose to
advance the claims of any candidate
for any office whatever, but I shall dis
cuss State and national issues, as they
appear to my mind, and the people can
then accept or reject them as their
judgment and reason may dictate.
I am well aware that there are cer
tain politicians in our State and the
South who denounce as emisaries and
hirelings of Mark Hanna every demo
crat who refuses to longer follow the
leader-strings of Wm. J. Bryan, and
advocate any new departure from the
old, beaten track. My democracy has
never been questioned. I devoted the
best years of my life and every talent
God has given me, to battling for the
cause of my party, and, in the line of
public office, I have neither asked nor
received one copper in return for my
But in all candor I can see but very
little, if any, difference whether a man
be the follower of Mark Hanna or Tel
ier. And so far as I am individually
concerned. I do not propose to be
guided by either one or the other. With
the single exception of his opposition
to the gold standard, Teller endorsed
every plank in the republican platform,
and he was aligned and in harmony in
its work with that- party when it was
a hundred fold more oppressive to the
South and its institutions than that
same party is today under the domina
tion of President McKinley and Mark
Hanna. If Teller ever opposed those
outrageous reconstruction measures
against the South, the placing of black
heels on white necks, and the filling of
every Federal office in the South with
venial carpetbaggers and ignorant ne
groes, I would like for some of those
democratic Tellerites to show wherein
he has ever befriended our people.
On the other hand President McKinley
has greatly advanced and improved the
public service in the South, and is giv
ing prominent positions to representa
tive, prominent and competent South
era-born white men
But as already said, so far as I am
individually concerned, I do not pro
pose to be a follower of Hanna, Teller
or any other republican or ex-republi
can leader. I shall think and act for
myself, but when the democratic
party meets in convention assembled,
formulates a platform and nominates
candidates. I shall then, and not till
then, bow to the will of the majority
and loyally support the standard beare:r
of my party.
