The latest move on the politi
cal chess board is the recent
"Address to the people" issued
by U-nited States Senator John
L. McLaurin; in it Senator Mc
Laurin anticipates the action of
the May convention, and virtual
ly "throws up the sponge." In
assuming that the convention
will adopt such requirements as
will preclude him from comply
ing, we think the Senator has
made a mistake, but he is right
in scorning anything like a spe
cial privilege in his case, as in
dicated in Senator Tillman's
Manning speech, in which. with
mock magnanimity. he proposed
to permit the adoption of a spe
cial rule in McLaurin's case. No
man with a spark of pride would
enter a primary under such cir
We regret exceedingly that
Senator McLaurin has been so
hasty, we have an abiding faith
in the good judgmen't and patriot
ism of the people, and still be
lieve, when the convention as
sembles the party requirements
will not be materially changed,
and such action will be taken
as will meet the acceptance
of every Democrat, matters
not how much they dif
fer now. We realize, there is
an element now in control of the
party machinery working with
might and main to accomplish
a selfish purpose for the coming
election, regardless of the effect
on party harmony: that element
cares not, so it can accomplish
its purpose, and to gain a tem
porary advantage it would run
the risk of tearing the party into
several hostile camps, but when
the convention assembles. it
need not be controlled by these
monte-banks, and conservatism
and patriotism should be the mo
tive prompting the delegates.
The convention should take such
action as will inspire confidence,
and inure to the benefit of the
people without regard to the
political aspirations of any man:
this, in our opinion will be the
motive prompting many of the
delegates and, for Senator Mc
Laurin to anticipate throttling
action, is premature.
The convention is entrusted
'with the rights of the people,
and not the aspirations of politi
cians, and as the Representa
tiyesof the people,no man should
attribute unfairness to them un
til they have acted unfairly; sim
ply because Senator Tillman has
issued forth his decree, is no rea
son to conclude that the dele
gates to the convention will do
his bidding. There will be men
in that convention who will have
views different from those ex
pressed by Senator Tillman. and
they will present them strongly.
True, Senator Tillman has a
powerful influence with the
party, but he has not always
succeeded in forcing the accept
ance of his ideas, therefore we
regard Senator McLaurin's let
ter a bad stroke at this time. If
by it he simply means to retire,
then he could have done so, by
employing different language,
but when he indicates that he
will ignore the primary, he plays
squarely into the hands of his
opponents, who have conspired
together for this very purpose.
The Democratic primary is the
only place where Democrats can
settle their differences, and he
who refuses to go into the pri
mary cannot go before the peo
ple at all, and is therefore out,
and no more a factor for con
sideration. What his future
course will be is not clear. The
Senator's enemies claim that his
letter was written for the pur
pose of paving the way to
going over to the Repub
lican party, but in the letter we
can not find one line which will
justify such a conclusion, and in
our opinion that conclusion is ar
rived at for the purpose of
further fanning the flames of
prejudice, be that as it may, Mc
Laurin does not indicate that he
will join the Republican party,
but he makes it clear that he is
not in sympathy with the con
templated primary system, and
that he believes the primary has
out lived its usefulness, and the
time has come when the people'
should do away with the prima
ry and depend upon the general
election, "under our State and
We cannot agree to this view,
our' whole fight since this agita
tion began. has been to keep the
primary system where its found
ers placed it. we have made this
fight, conscientiously, and per
sonal friendship for Senator Mc
Laurin or any other man will
not cause us to change. The
primary system is absolutely
necessary for the good of the
State. There is not room for two
white parties in South Carolina,
and the primary, honestly man
aged can and will give the people
all the freedom they want. Our
that we must hold on to the pri
mary system, but,to place no ob
structions in the way of giving
the people an opportanity to
hear and judge for themselves.
We want the primary system so
free, that every white man who
pledges himself a Democrat and
will abide the result and support
the nominees, can go before the
people, present his views and
leave it to them to say whethe'r
or not he is a Democrat and his
views meet with their approval.
We are and always will be op
posed to an executive committee
prescribing a man's politics. if
the people cannot be trusted
then in the name of decency stop
saying that this is a government
-for the people and by the peo
ple," and truthfully proclaim
that this is a government "for
the politicians and by the politi
cians" and add the celebrated
Vanderbilt remark, "the people
be damned." Senator McLaurin
and ourself are personal friends
and on this account certain poli
ticians have instilled into the
minds of many people impres
sions unwarranted by the facts,
but our position remains un
changed, we always claimed that
on these national questions grow
ing out of the war between the
United States and Spain which
has brought down upon Senator
McLaurin such a storm of dis
approval, that he should be per
mitted to go into the primary
and discuss those questions and
let the people. not the politi
cians be the judges of his De
mocracy. This has been our
position from the beginning, and
until a declaration is made by
the convention it will continue
to be our position. As a Demo
crat, always contending that duty
demands the laying aside of per
sonal views, and acquiesence
when the State Democratic Con
vention makes its declaration,we
say boldly that no man is en
titled to Democratic considera
tion who refuses to submit to
the will of the majoi-ity. If Sen
ator McLaurin refuses to enter
the coming primary, it, in our
opinion, means that he has re
tired from the field. and left it
open to his opponents, and will
go back to private life, hoping
for time to vindicate his course.
We do not believe that he will
join the Republican party. There
is only one door open for en
trance to the United States Sen
ate in South Carolina, and that
is through the Democratic pri
mary, there is absolutely no such
thing as an appeal to the general
election, for it would be a physi
cal impossibility to elect inde
pendent tickets in the counties;
this every sane man knows, and
Senator McLaurin's reference to
the general election is not, as
some would like to make it ap
pear, a threat to run indepen
dent, but a hope expressed that
the people will do away with
the primary and depend upon
the general election, not for this
coming election, but in the fu
ture, and if we mistake not sev
eral very able anti-McLaurin
newspapers in this State have
long ago advocated a similar
We have known John Lowndes
McLaurin many years and his
political career has not been a
"flowery bed of ease," becajise
of his being a student of political
economy and naturally of an as
sertive nature. He chafes un
der restraint and rebels under
tyranny; he is no politician, for
if he was, by playing to the pop
ular feeling, and submitting him
self as a truckling follower of
leadership, regardless of his
convictions, today,be would have
had the masses to his back. But
McLaurin entertained views on
governmental questions and,
without obtaining permission of
the leaders, dared to express
them. This independence has
cost him the enmity of Tiliman,
and as a result his popularity
with the masses, but if he is
right,time will vindicate him. In
the history of all civilized coun
tries men have gone down for
expressing their convictions and
then came forward again strong
er than before. Why? Because
time was convincing, and they
were right. If it turns out that
McLaurin is right after all, some
men who are honestly differing
with him now, may be in a few
years, calling for him to lead.
Let that be as it may, the future
will take care for itself, the pres
ent is what we are dealing with.
If McLaurin has decided to re
main out of the primary there is
no law compelling him to go in,
and if he is not willing to sub
mit to the Democratic conven
tion-the highest party author
ity-then he must get out by
himself. As for us, we propose
to carry out every promise we
have ever made in these columns.
With regard to the action of the
State Democratic Convention,
we are in honor bound to submit
to and support its action, and so
is every man in South Carolina
whose name is on a Democratic
club roll with his consent, and
any man who refuses to submit
and support the declaration of
the State Democratic Convention
cannot participate in the pri
mary: that institution is only in
tended to get an expression from
those who will accept the Demo
ratic party's regulations.
We are a South Carolina Dem
ocrat, and as such have fre
quently declared that the party
is higher than any man or set of
men, hence whatever platform,
constitution or rules the Demo
cratic party adopts and sends
forth from its convention, must
be our platform, constitution or
rules. We will not follow any
man out of the party, nor will
we go into retirement for the
sake of any man; the mainte
nance and welfare of the Demo
cratic party, in honor, we must

How long he occupied his position

member that it was said that at about
11 o'clock on the morning of February
17th, 1865 his advanced forces entered
Columbia: the city having been surren
dered to Sherman by the city authori
ties under the promise, it has been said
from Sherman, that full protection
should be given to life and property.
A little further on and the reader will
leave how this promise was observed
on the part of the valiant Tecumsek.
About the latter part of the evening
of Febrnary 17th, the rest of this great
army of robbers had reached, and was

tailed fire corps.
At this time it has been said that one
of the Sisters of Mercy was then plead
ing with a Federal officer quite high in
rank for protection for the people from
the cowardly violence of Sherman's
horde of maranders.
During this time this same officer (so
it has been said) observed Sherman's
fire corns. On his observing the fire
corps he said to this lady; Columbia is
ooied. The order has gone forth.

After leaving Columbia, Sherman's
army continued to plunder, burn and
murder and his troops being allowed

eneral Shierman. to contintue these
ttrocities, compelled General Hampton

Sherman was not long in finding out d
hat killing was a game that Hampton si

Anyway Sherman became solicitous el
iboutthe lives and the safety of his v

work the game of a great big yankee 1<

Eampton to have murdered a certain r;
aumber of his (Hampton's) men in re- h

through the columns of the papers in lI
regard to the Exposition and its many t
attractive features. There is one how- I
ever that has been almost entir'ely ig-j
nored or overlooked by our correspon

its location is much as not to attract
general attention. Reference is made
to the Grass Garden of tile U. S. Agri
ultural Department. which consists of
four acres of ground, and is located just
east of the encanmpmient of thme Marine
Corps. Every farmer who visits the.
Exposition, should visit this Garden. .
