THINK WELL BEFORE SIGNING PETITIONS
The political agitators are about
to begin in earnest. heretofore
all of this talk and speech-mak
in( was nothing more than the
advance guard making demon
strations to make and feel sen
timent. It becomes our duty to
follow in the wake of these agi
tators and point out to the people
- what we deem is to their detri
ment. "There are tricks in all
trades," and in this particular
political agitation the tricksters
have played a cunning game, but
in our opinion, when exposed the
people will stamp it out. We
call their methods tricks and de
velopments will justify such a
characterization. What are the
methods so far: first, the forma
tion of a combination of men
who were no longeg- than two
years ago opposed to each other:
second, to select one for destruc
tion who is in position that mon
ey, political favor and nothing
else can buy, and by this combi
nation or intrigue accomplish
that which would fail with the
people if merit were relied upon,
third, the head conspirator in
the scheme to protect certain in
terests, wants to be sent to the
General Assembly, but with
great pretense he will not pose
as a candidate, and lays much
stress upon his private affairs,
at the same time he has
friends who will circulate a peti
tion asking him to become a can
didate. and in that event he
mounts a pedestal of patriotism
and responds to the call regard
less of how the petition came to
be put in circulation or who is pro
cured to circulate it. This trick
is an old one, it has been worked
elsewhere and its purpose is to
shackle free white men in ad
vance,by binding them in writing
to support a candidate in advance
of the primary; a practice, which
if not resented, will pervert the
primary into a throttling ma
chine far worse than the old-time
convention system. A man who
has a spark of independence will
regard any attempt to bind him
in advance of the primary, an in
sult to his manhood and will sic
his dogs upon the circulator of
such a petition. This is a free
country and any man who fels
qualified to represent an intelli
gent people should be willing to
come square out like a man and
take his chances like all other
candidates. But if he realizes
that he is not qualified for the
place he seeks, and that his ad
versary ma'.y be able-to show up
his lack of qualification and also
the motive prompting his candi
dacy, the binding of voters by
petition in advance of the prima
ry will no doubt be to his advan
tage, for he knows that many
voters if they sign such a peti
tion will feel obligated to either
cast their vote for the man they
petitioned for, or stey away from
the polls, regardless of what
may develope in the campaign.
We earnestly warn white men
against the petition trick. If
you favor a man vote for him,
but do not sign away your man
hood, the only thing a free man
can boast of. There is great dan
ger ahead of the people, and it
is our duty to sound the alarm;
for several years past, there has
been a decided activity on the
part of combined capital, these
combinations are known as cor
porations, which, under a char
ter from the Secretary of State
have certain legal advantages,
and from year to year they seek
more power, to the extent that
the encrouchments upon the
people through the General As
sembly is becoming a matter of
serious consideration, and the
people cannot help but realize the*
harmful effect of this combined
capital by legislative aid. How is
it done? A few individuals organ
ize a "joint stock company" se
cure a charter, then they com
bine several similar "joint stock
companies" and form a "trust."
The trust when formed, either
buys or crushes out competition
and the people become the vic
tims of this vampire. As an il
lustration, we point to the cot
ton seed oil mills, and as these
come in the direct view of our
farmers we will attempt to show
the danger of having corporation
people in the General Assembly.
Everybody knows that since the
"trust" h'as taken hold of the
cotton seed manufacture the pro
duct has been steadily advancing
in price, and that the mills not
in the "trust" are out because
the trust would not let them in:
notwithstanding this, the outside
mills will not undertake to com
pete with the trust, they would
rather be governed by the prices
fixed by the trust because it
makes mnore money for them out
of the farmer. When the trust
reduces the pr-ice of seed the out
side mills do the same. and when
the trust raises the price of meal
the outside mills raise also.
There is absolutely no compe
tition and no help for the
farmer and the p~eop~le are
left in the condition of the Indian
who hunted with the white man:
the result of the hunt was a
turkey and a buzzard, at the de
vision, white man (the corpora
buzzard, and I the turkey." In
dian (the farmer) did not fancy
that, so white man said, "well,
Indian, I will take the turkey
and you the buzzard." Soit was
buzzard every time for the in
dian, and so it is with the peo
ple, the corporations with their
combined wealth aided ard en
couraged by the laws made by
our General Assembly give the
corporations every advantage,
and the reason for it is plain.
The corporate interests in the
General Assemlbly is being look
ed after either by paid attorneys,
or by men who have money in
veste in corporations. This
(on1d ition was so apparent, that
Senator Ilderton of Florence in
troduced a joint resolution to
make it unlawful for a corpora
tion attorney to hold a seat in
the General Assembly, but it
did not get through, the corpor
ation element continues to grow,
simply because the people allow
themselves tricked into voting
for men under a hue and cry
about some matter that is of no
practical value to them. When
this element finds a man in the
General Assembly with the back
bone to fight the encrouchments
of corporations, and they cannot
flatter or buy him, then they
mark him for political slaughter:
all kinds of devices are resorted
to, they will take up some ex
pression of his, which has no
practical value, and convert it
into a political issue, then they
will combine with the personal
enemies of the man,-men who
are known to be standing off
watching an opportunity to loot
the public treasury; they will
use every effort to prejudice the
minds of the people against the
man who dares t obstruct them,
and with a lot of hypocritical
cant invite a popular idol to help
them out in their nefarious
scheme, and to fit the key stone
into this conspiracy arch, they
pose as sacrifices and consent to
become candidates only after the
people have been asked to bind
themselves. or mortgage their
birth right, by signing a peti
We assert, that corporations
are gradually fastening their
manacles upon the limbs of the
masses, and unless their is a gen
eral awakening to resist, corpor
ate greed will clutch the throats
of the people and choke them
into a condition of servitude:
"lethargy" on the part of the
people says William Jennings
Bryan "will permit these rapid
ly increasing corporations to
weld chains of slavery upon the
ankles of those who are forced
to buy from, and sell to these
combines, whether the same are
local or foreign and any man
chosen by the people to repre
sent them in a General Assem
bly whose money is invested in
corporations or combines will cer
tainly betray you, because such
men will surely legislate where
their moneyed interests are, even
to the extent of oppressing the
people who have trusted them."
Bryan has, time and again char
acterized corporation legislators
as "money changers that should
be driven from the temple."
Do the people want South Car
olina clutched by the tentacles
of the corporation octopus, as is
the State of New Jersey today?
Then they had better heed the
warning of William Jennings
Bryan,~and keep men who are
interested in corporations out of
the General Assembly whether
they come out as candidates at
the request of a petition volun
tarily put forward, or the result
of a stable caucus. A look
over the legislation of the past
few years will convince us that
the farmer, laborer and mechanic,
has but few friends in the Gen
eral Assembly, and that nearly
all of the legislation tends to the
advantage of corporations.
We cannot urge too strongly
the repudiation of any effort
to bind the people in advance of
the primary. The primary sys
tem was inaugurated to require
candidates to meet the people
face to face, and show to them
what qualification they have for
the position they seek, but if the
candidate is permitted to trick
the people into a pledge of sup
port by a petition, then the pri
mary is absolutely a farce. Any
man who aspires to go to the
Senate or House of Representa
tives. should be required to come
out fair and square, on his indi
vidual merit, and let the people
with an untrammelled judgment
pass upon him. A petition is a
stroke at liberty which self re
spect should resent; a man may
sign a petition today and .to
morrow it developes that he re
grets his action, but having once
signed he feels bound. Keep
your signatures off of petitions
in behalf of candidates for office
posing as making "a sacrifice of
his business," this is a trick that
has been worked threadbare and
should be mocked at, especially
in this day when the people are
feeling the oppression of cor
porations, and the efforts being
put forth by them to capture our
government. When a petition
is presented to you, inquire if the
oarty in whose interest it is, has
any interest in corpor-ations, and
how many? Also why it is the
people must be pledged in ad
vance of the primary? Then in
dignantly refuse to sign upon
the ground that it would be un

We want every one of ou
readers to know that this news
paper is opposed to changins
the party pledge for reason
previously stated, but at th<
same time. whatever action th'
Deocratic State Conventioi
takes will meet with our sub
mission and loyal support. Thi:
declaration is repeated because
of the systematic effort on the
part of some unscrupulous poli
ticians to create false impres
sions. We also say emphatic
ally that any man who ignore
the primary can have no voice i]
the councils of the Democrati
party and should have none. N
man can be a Democrat in Sout]
Carolina if he refuses to be gov~
erned by party discip)line. Th

every white man in the Stat
whose name is on a Democrati
club roll must adopt said plat
form, constitution and by-law
or step out of the party. Thi;
is our contention now, and ever;
editorial expression we have eve
made has so contended. W
may have certain views as to th
poic of the party which w
1! think would be best for the par

Scan only be offered to the major

jority accepts our view it is grat
ifying, but if it does not we are
e in honor bound to accept the ma
jority's view. This is what we
call Democracy in South Caro
lina,and a Democracy that stable
caucuses and tishing party cau
cuses cannot alter. The object
1 of the primary was to give every
aspirant for office an equal show
before the people; it was also
for the purpose of repudiating
t snap judgments, and when the
people learn that a candidate has
a snap judgment in the nature of
a petition, that candidate will be
repudiated at the polls. Why?
Because such action is at deti
ance of the principles of the
Democratic primary system.

HOMICIDE IN WILLIAMSBURG.
Holleman is a Brother-in-L.w of Mr. Charles
SE. Strange of Felder.
1 Kingstree, May 12.-Another grue
- some page has been added to the homi
cidal chronicles of Williamsburg and
tonight Harry H. Brown lies in jail on
the charge of having slain his brother
1 in-law, W. H. Holleman. This morning
1 the two men, who lived together, about
ten miles from town, came to Kingstree
in a wagon and, after making some pur
chases, started to return home. The
shooting occurred near Belser's Cross
f roads, about four miles from town.
The only witnesses to the affair were
two negro women, whose testimony was
a substantially the same. Being a short
a distance ahead of the wagon they heard
- some one cry out: "By God, stop!"
t Then a little later: " You are fixin to
get your head broke." They looed
a back and saw Holleman jerk Brown
- across a bale of hay and commence
> beating him, whereupon Brown drew a
pistol and shot his assailant.
Brown's testimony was entirely dif
ferent. He said that Holleman had
shot at a bird, and was breaking and
unbreaking his weapon with the muz
zle pointing towards himself, when it
was accidentally discharged. He said
further that he and Holleman were
perfectly friendly, and that he (Brown)
tnever carried a pistol. When the pis
tol was fired the horse took fright and
ra-n a distance, which cause Holleman
to fall out of the wagon and one of the
wheels ran over his body. Finding that
Holleman was dead, he drove on to
Greeleyville and reported that Holle
n-an had accidentally killed himself.
The shooting took place about I1p. m.
Sand the inquest was held at 4. After
t hearing the evidence the coroner's jury
3 returned the following verdict: That
> the deceased came to his death from a
Sgunshot wound at the hands of Harry
- . Brown. The bullet, which was fired
-from a 38-calibre Smith & Wesson pis
t tol, penetrated the abdomen, about six
a inches below the left nipple to the left
.of the median line and, ranging up
w ard. struck the apex of the breast.
3 Dr. A. D. Epps, the attending physi
1 ecan, said that death must have ensued
a instantly. Holleman was about 26 years
old and leaves a wife, but no children.
He was employed as night watchman
by the Mallard Lumber Company of
r Greeleyville. Brown is unmarried and
3 only 23 years old.
. fWhen the verdict was rendered a
warrant was immediately issued, and
Sheriff G. J. Graham took Brown in
t custody and brought him here to jail.

The Exposition Duing the Month of May.
fThe Southern Railroad, the Atlantic
Coast Line and the Plant System have
arranged to continue the sale of the
a cheap tuesday tickets to the Exposi
3 tion, as sold during the month of April,
on every Tuesday and Thursday during
the month of May. This will enable
all who have not yet visited the Expo
sition to do so during its closing month,
and those who have visited it, to again
take advantage of the low rate offered,
sas many will undoubtedly so.
SThere has been a great deal said
-through the columns of the papers in
regard to the Exposition and its many
attractive features. There is one how
ever that has been almost entirely ig
s nored or overlooked by our correspon
t dents, and probably from the fact that
its location is much as not to attract
s general attention. Reference is made
- to the Grass Garden of the U. S. Agri
s cultural Department, which consists of
four acres of ground. and is located just
east of the encampment of the Marine
-Corps. Every farmer who visits the
Exposition, should visit this Garden.
Here are to be found growing over
fifty different specimens of forage crops
suitable for our Southern suns, as well
- as wheat, rye and barley of many kinds.
r The seeds of the different forage crops
referreg to have been gathered from
Egypt, Africa. China, Ireland, Scot
land, England, Australia and many
3. other countries. The representative
of the Agricultural Department in
. charge of the Garden is a practical
.farmer, and can give the visitor full
information regarding each and every
species of the crop, and it can be said
3 to every farmer, if he can spare time
.to come down. even if he spends only
one day at the Exposition, let him care
~ fully study these forage crops, get a
- list of such as he wants to use, and he
swill be ten times repaid for the expense
of the trip, and for the time he may
think he is losing from his farm,
