DID TRAXLER PRAY?
It was stated in the newspa
pers that Hon. W. D. Mayfielh
said, that twelve of the member:
of the State Democratic Commit
tee who voted for the resolution:
asking for Senator McLaurin'
resignation, had expressed re
gret for so voting. Hon. D. H
Magill of Greenwood, a membe:
of the committee who might bi
termed the lash to Tillman':
whip, addressed a circular lette:
to the twenty one who voted fo:
the resolution, and sixteen re
plied saying in effect that "the:
didn't say it." but in reading th<
replies from the noble sixteen i
will be noted that there are some
among them who write with al
apologetic ring, notably amon!
these, is the Hon. D. H. Traxler
the gentleman who had the hon

missioner: it was he who accom
pained Senator Tillman to th<
West where the first liquor pur
chases were made for the State
from which no rebates have beer

Traxler in his reply to the Ma

yet because the order came fror

Mr. Traxler yield to the wisdor

No, they both contented them

Traxler permits himself to re

been Tillman's pal in the rebat
business. Then is it any wonde:
that he yields his conscience an<
judgment to "wiser heads"?

THE GOVERN~OR DIDN'T ASK PERMISSIO19
Governor McSweeney h a:
again used his judgment in a wa:
to receive popular applause. Col
W. A. Neal, after having mad<
one of the best superintendents
the State Penitentiary ever had
and the records show that whei
he left the institution the finan
cial condition was in splendit
shape, but an investigation comn
mittee had matters in chargi
and as soon as they ascertainet
Neal's indebtedness the amnoun
was forthcoming, but the statu
tory thirty days had expired and
on that technical charge he wa:
tried by Judge Gary and Attor
ney-General Bellinger and con
victed-not for robbing the Statt
or stealing one cent, but simply
for not turning over the State':
funds within thirty days. Nove:
in the history of the State ha:
such desperate efforts to convic1
been made, and never has a ver
The efforts to convict were so
strenuous that the trial judge
ignored a request to charge made
by the defendant's counsel, be
cause the attorney had not com
plied with the rule to reduce to
writing his "requests to charge."
A man's liberty and character in
jeopardy and a legal advantage
taken on a mere technicality.
Colonel Neal was convicted
o and sentenced, but the people
throughout the State felt the
great injustice of a man convic
ted and sentenced to prison,
when everybody knows that he
did not commit any intentional
violation of the law. Petitions
c and letters were sent in to the
Governor to rescue Coldnel Neal
r from his persecutors, and not al
low them to further their politi
cal fortunes at the expense of a
man whom they would crush.
Governor McSweeney investi
gated the case thoroughly, and
after ascertaining to his own sat
isfaction that Colonel Neal is not
responsible to the State for a
dollar, he went to Neal's rescue
by signing the pardon prayed
The Governor's action has not
met with the approval of Attor
A ney-General Bellinger, and that
official gives the press a long
harangue, criticizing his chief,
winding it up with verse, but the
chief executive of South Carolina
has treated his subordinate with
silence, one of the strongest re
bukes that can be administered
to a man who will soon become a
candidate for Congress before
his present term as Attorney
Colonel Neal's friends prayed
for the pardon to save the ex
pense of a new trial, and the in
justice done the man was so
glaring that they did not want to
_ undergo the wait on the Supreme
Court. We join with the best
thought of the State in congrat
ulating Governor McSweeney,
for using his constitutional pre
rogative in this case without
consulting with the official who
was so eloquent and persistent to
convict upon a mere technical
OH ! HORRORS, IF TRUE.
r Any man who will, for politi
cal purposes, endeavor to create
false impressions about affic
tions in an opponent's family is
indeed cruel. If the published in
terviews with Senator Tillman
t at the North are correct, he is
not the man we have regarded
him. We have looked upon him
t as a bluff talker, but one who
e would scorn to take a mean ad
Ivantage; but if he referred in a
slighting manner to Senator Mc
tLaurin's family afflictions, it was
t simply brutish. When the last
ISenatorial campaign started it
Swas at Sumter, a distinguished
Sphysician of that city advised
-Senator McLaurin to return
Shome and go through a thorough
course of medicine. Dr. Hew
t son is the man, and he told him
1his condition would not with
stand a campaign. McLaurin,
-however, went on, and at York
ville Dr. Hewson's words were
fulfilled, McLaurin collapsed,
from which he has never fully
recovered, to the knowledge of
his colleague. McLaurin has
since that time been a frequent
patient in a Washingto:a infirm.
-ary, then his wife became affiic
t tedl and was also an infirmary
patient, and underwent a criti
cal operation, to the knowledge
of Senator Tillman; then recent
t ly Senator McLaurin's daughter
1was stricken with typhoid fever
in Greenville, to the knowledge
of an entire sympathizing com
-munity. When the child was
able to travel, on the advice of a
physician, the Senator took her
on a sea trip, and while North,
the newspapers say that Mr.
-' Mowry, Senator McLaurin's
step-father was stricken with
paralysis. These afflictions are
not the making of man, and when
politicians seek to use them for
the purpose of prejudicing the
chances of an opponent, it is as
ghoulish as robbing a grave of
jewels from the dead,
ye Politicians claim that " all is
fair in love," but we do not be
lieve that a politician, it matters
not how high he may be, can
t!aunt in the faces of a constitu
ency any such ghoulishnesss and
t retain the people's respect. If
Tillman did speak slightingly of
-McLaurin's family afflictions he
is unworthy the name of man.
We sincerely hope that Tillman
-h1as been misquoted.

family of every black brute lynched,

It is especially fitting and apropriate ce

I desire to announce to the people of Clarendon and adjoining
:ounties that I am prepared this season to join in the hustling race
for the trade.
I have added largely to my stock of
Dry Goods, Fancy Goods, Notions, Shoes,
Clothing, Hats and Gent's Furnishings
and can vouchsafe to the trade that I will be able to please in both
guality and price.
I bought my stock with a view to extending my trade and I
earnestly ask the readers of this paper to come to my store in The
Manning Times block, two doors south of the postoffice, and let
me show what my goods are and the prices I offer them at.
This department has been enlarged and I have secured the
services of as fine milliner as there was in New York city, who is
now in the great metropolis selecting the goods, and in a few days
they will be opened up for public inspection.
The day for fancy prices in Millinery has departed. Come to
see me and be convinced.
