A SENSIBLE VIEW.
The Democratic Party And The South.
The next few months are big
with possibilities for the Demo
cratic party. There is the chance
to obtain full control of both
branches of the government for
the second time since the war.
the chance not only to put Dem
ocrats into office but to bring the
republic back to the paths that
are well-beaten and safe.
To accomplish this only unity
of effort and the subordination of
personal ambitions to the gener
al good are needed. Past differ
er-ces must be forgotton, not be
cause this factinn or that should
confess error but because the
dangers lie ahead and we should
look to the future, not to the
- past. At heart the people of the
United States are in sympathy
with the principles of the Demo
cratic party: if they are not,
then the people are not in sym
pathy with the-form of govern
ment which has been so long
preserved in its magnificent or
ignality. The Republican party
/ today, more than ever before,
stands for centralization and
federalism, if not for an actual
oligarchy. It attracts all who
believe, for one reason or anoth
er, in strong government as well
as those-not a few-who have
no confidence in popular rule
and sincerely hold to doctrines
against which the founders of
the repubhc fought. Imperial
ism, colonialism, the oppression
of weaker states, needlessly
high tariffs which shelter mon
opolies and pile up a great sur
- plus, personal favoritism in the
bestowal of offices and an allh
ance between senate and presi
dent based upon patronage
these are unrepublican pr-actices
which bode no good for our once
It is meet and fitting that in
issuing- the call for ,the Demo
cratic convention the national
committee should have invited
the cooperation of "all Demo
cratic citizens in the United
States who can unite with us 'in
the effort for a pure and econom
ical constitutional government."
That is a concise and yet comn
-plete statement of the paramount
issue of 1904---a pure and econ
omical constitutional govern
ment." For that the Democratic
party can afford to stand, be
cause it is just and proper and
timely, and because "a p~ure and
constitutional government is not
to be had under Republican rule.
Excessive tariffs, presidential
favoritism'~ and usurpation of
power, disregard of other na
tions' rights, corruption in the
public service-these are the
proofs that can be presented
against the party in power.
While the opportunity and the
duty are alike manifest, there is
also evident danger that instead
of uniting in -a common cause and
with a common purpose the two
wings of the party, each pro
fessing equal allegiance to the
basic principles of the party, are
most likely to fall to fighting
each other, leaving the way open
again for Republican success
and the continuation of imipure
and unconstitutional govern
ment. The fight is even now on.
It is in a sense a seational fight,
and the south should assert its
right to be heard in the settle
ment, for a Democratic ticket
cannot be elected without the
electorial votes of the southern
states from Maryland to Texas.
Knowing. or believing, that
these States will vote solidly for
a'ny ticket that may be labelled
"Democratic." certain leaders,
chiefly in the east, are planning
to nominate and elect a candi
date of their own choosing on a
platform of their own without
consulting the preferences and
desires of the people upon whom
the ticket must mainly depend
for its success. The southern
States, we will admit and have
said before, are inclined to
favor-all things being equal
any acceptable candidate who
can carry New York and other
eastern States, say New Jersey,
Delaware and perhaps Connecti
cut. But this does not mean
that the Democrats of the South
are ready to stultify themselves
for the sake of victory, it does
not mean that they are so eager
for the fieshoots of federal office
that they will vote willingly for
a whited sepulchre or a stuffed
prophet of disunion and defeat.
The Democrats of tile south can
not be brought to support any
man who has repudiated their
friendship and betrayed their
trust, and any man who has ac
cepted the leader-ship of his par
ty and then refused to keep step
with the rank and file. In other
words, Cleveland is impossible.
We might take a Cleveland man,
even Olney, but not Cleveland
To try to thrust Cleveland
upon the party is to disregard
not only the south's self-respect
tions. It is to goad Bryan to a
Now Bryan has done his party
service, as he has by his party
been highly honored as few men
are. Twice the nominee for ,
Dresident. he has-whatever may 1
be said against his wisdom
twice received the support, the
enthusiastic support, of six and
a half million Democrats. It is
folly to read him out of the 1
party now, it is absurb to humil
iate him and set at naught i
his counsels. The declared de
sire to treat him so is largely
responsible for his present angry,
attitude which threatens to dis
rupt the party. We have no
sympathy at all with his demand 1
that the platforms of 1896 and
1900 be reaffirmed plank for
plank, word for word. But w
can very readily understand
how, being human,thesuggestion
to nominate the former nominee
who later refused his support to
Bryan is a taunt and a dare to the
entleman from Nebraska. If
leveland could sulk in '96, and
could not speak even in 1900,
why should Bryan be expected
meekly to submit to his nomina
tion now ? to mention Cleveland, t
therefore, is to drive Bryan to
an extreme that, if unreasonable
and unwise, is not past the un
derstanding of men who have 1
pride and good red blood. t
The campaigns of 1896 and
1900 proved pretty conclusively
that the Democratic ticket can
not carry the country without
the assistance of that action of 1
which Mr. Cleveland is general
ly referred to as representative.
There can be no doubt, on the
other hand, that the election of
1904 cannot be won without the
votes of those millions who sup
ported Bryan in his two cam
paigns. Harmony, then, means t
not the victory of one faction
over the other but the coming t
together of both on a common f
ground with due respect to each. t
In bringing this about the
Democrats of the south can, and
should, take the lead. They I
have remained true to the party i
at all times-under all conditions I
and all leaders-true not to the
party alone but to the political I
theories upon which a pure and r
constitutional government has
rested and must rest. The
Democrats of the south have no
candidate to present, they will c
support an eastern or a western
man who is sound in doctrine
and strong in the regard of the t
people, one whose name spells
principle as wenl as victory and
who will honor the party as the
party honors him. The southern
Democrats will refuse to be used
for the purposes of any person 1
or any faction striving to con- j
trol the party; they are lookmgng
for a leader who can lead and 1
whom all Democrats can honora
bly follow in the fight for "a
pue and constitutional govern
ment." They are not to be<
round between the upper and
the nether millstone nor kicked,
from one side to the other as an:
inanimate and unintelligent foot- 1
ball. The 120 votes or more
which the south will cast in the
electorial college are necessary
to the success of a Democratic
candidate and if the south is to
be "solid" there it can as well
be solid when it comes to thei
framing of the platfornm and the
naming of the nominees. And
the south is conservative and
charitable, not radical nor sel
fish. It has no "isms" or oddi- I
ties -to present and no candidate;
it is desirous of securing a pure
and economical constitutional
government with a president I
and a congress who will main
tai the laws and the principles
of the republic.
The party and the country
must respect the south, and the
south must not allow itself to be
Mr. John H. Cullom, Editor of the t
Garland, Texas, News, has written a 1
letter of congratulations~ to the manu
facturers of Chamberlain's Cough Rem- I
edy as follows: "Sixteen years agog
when our first child was a baby he was!
subject to croupy spells and we would
be verv uneasy about him. We began t
using Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in
187, and finding it such a reliable rem
ed for colds and croup, we have neverC
been without it in the house since that
time. We have five children and have
given it to all of them with good re
sults. Oue good feature of this remedy.
is that it is not disagreeable to take and
our babies really like it. Another is I
that it is not dangerous, and there is not
risk from giving an overdose. I con- I
gratulate you upon the success of your
remedy." For sale by The R. B. Lor

Joseph Ochs, Washington cor
respondent of the Atlanta Con
stitution says, there will be sev
enteen Democratic senators who
will vote for the ratification of I
the Panama treaty. Among the
number he mentions is Senator
Latimer,the junior member fromt
South Carolina. Senator Tillman 1
is classed on the opposition side.
We do not know how this differ
ene will effect their relationship
but Latimer is taking the risk of
a split between he and Tillman,
and if such a thing does come
the advantage will be with Till- t
man because he will be in when I
Latimer's time is out. But Till- 1
man is shrewd enough to see
that he has made as many ene
mies as he can stand and cannot
afford to make any more, hence
he will think well before he
forces a rupture between Lati
mer and himself.

:ditur The Manning Times:
Complying with your request I am
ending you a few lines from the State
apitol, where the Legislature is in ses
ion. But you must not expect any fine
etter; I am just going to scribble at
andom as my pen seems to run.
It will be two weeks tomorrow since
he General Assembly convened, and
oth the Senate and the House got
own to work pretty quickly. There
vere enough measures left over from
he last session to give the mill some
hing to grind on at once, and it has
>een grinding pretty regularly ever
ince, occasioually grinding something
nto law, but mostly grinding bills to
eath. There are 124 men in me
louse and 41 in the Senate, making
65 in all. Every man who comes up
resh from the people and the cam
)aign has from one to three bills to in
roduce. Of this number about three
>ut of every four are killed, aud still
he State lives and the government
urvives. This is about my experience.
Jr. Editor, and you know how it is. I
ot through two or three little meas
ires last session and had one other re
ating to the recording of chattel mort
ages to prevent fraud left over to
ome up this session. The daily papers
ive such brief mention of bills some
imes that the general public do not get
he true substance of the measure, and.
uch was the case with this chattei
nortgage bill of mine. However, I ex
>ected it to be killed, and when it came
tp did not put up much of a fight for it,
he House was in a killing frame of
nind that day, so my bill w ant the way
'f many others. I have a ms : re now
ntrodiced which proposes to simplify
he matter of tax collecting an1 put
ing on penalties and doing away with
he present complicated and cumber
ome arrangement, but if I get it
brough I am going to have a hard
ight. However, I think some remedy
s a great necessity, and I propose to
ake a good fight for it if I am whip
oed out. The measure may not pass at
his session, but something similar to
ay bill will have to be adopted in the
ext year or two. The present ar
anement was only made to help out
anks, cotton mills and other corpora
ions and big taxpayers, while the av
rage taxpayer, the masses of the peo
le, get practically no benefit from the
rrangement. But the worst part of
he present law is that it complicates
he system so and the treasurers never
et through gathering taxes. I think
he State ought to have one fixed time
or the tax books to close, and when
hat time is out then put on a penal:y
f say 10 per cent and clcse up the mat
er of tax collecting and be done with it.
Mr. Lanham's baggage bill, which
assed the House last session, has also
assed the Senate, making the amount
f baggage that a passenger can carry
n trains 200 pounds instead of 250
'ounds as Mr. Lanham wanted. The
louse refused to agree to the amend
2ent, and the matter is now in a com
ittee of conference, where I am in
lined to think it will find its death.
Mr. DesChamps has introduced a
2easure for the establishment of agri
ultural experiment stations in all the
ounties, under the direction largely
f the professor of agriculture of Clem
on College. I like the plan, but it is
oo long for me to go into its details
Considering that there is now so
nuch rmore work in our County Treas
trer's office than there was a few years
.go on account of so many special
chool districts and general increase in
he work, we have decided to increase
he salary of the County Treasurer
rm eight hundred to a thousand dol
ars. The Treasurer has to give a
wenty thousand dollar bond. which
osts about $100 per year, and then pay
ut about $150 for a clerk, so that after
ie pays for these out of his salary it
rill not quite come up to some of the
ther regular salaried officers yet.
I understand that our county has 8GO00
n hand which accrued from the sale of
e old poor farm some years
o. I am trying to get our delega
,ion to provide that the county comn
nissioners shall buy a piece of land for
Lbout $1,000 and put a house on it to
:ost something like $1,500 for taking
are of the county's poor. The pres
mt system of supplying the poor at
heir homes has grown to be unman
Lgeable, and besides, I think the count
y should have some place where the
soor and mendicant can go, and where
ick convicts can be sent. I believe
hat such a farm can be worked with
he short term convicts and help large
y towards sustaining the chaingang.
There is a big proposition on foot
ere, introduced by Mr. Herbert of
)rangeburg to create 124 scholarships
n Clemson College. I don't know
bout the wisdom of such a proposition,
s the board of trustees has always
>een composed mostly of agricultural
sts, and such a proposition might
hange materially the regularly estab
ished plans of the college. However,
am not well posted on the matter yet,
nd have not fully made up my mind.
There was a proposition also for the
tate penitentiary to go into the manu
acturing of fertilizers for sale, but the
roposition fell through, as it should
ave, as such a scheme would soon
ankrupt the State.
By the way, I thought that a commit
ee from the farmers''convention wvere
o send up some recommendations to
or delegation,but we have heard noth
og from them as yet. Senator Dai'is

Another year has slipped by, as it
erer, and the one gallus boys have got

old, borrow another gallus (if we can)

gain. But the land knows where that

Vouldn't we simply be in it if we could
rear two gallus's like other people:
ike the oil mill men,for instance. They
rear two gallus's all the time, but they
cake us wool-hatters pay for one of
em. And if you will notice close, Mr.
Editor, you never see one of these trust
ellows wearing a wool hat either.
cmebody might take 'em for a farmer
f they did, and that would never do.
3ut we ain't ashamed one bit. We
gill cover our one gallus with a fifty
:nt jacket, hang our wool hat on a
ail, and set down to a mess of hog and
ominy and digest it better than Mr.
ockfellow wvith all his millions. And
hat brings me to a fine point to decide.
Yhat are we going to do with Mr.
ockfellow? They say he has gone to
nes-ing in the guano businae ard has
run the price up way pass our compre
auction. He wasn't satisfied with
messing in the kerosine oil business.
but must dabble in guano too. I don1t
see any chance but for us to write to
Mr. Rockfellow and tell him how the
thing is. I don't know what the rest of
the boys think but here's about what I
would like to tell him:
Dear Mr. 1ockefellow: We received
your letter saying as how you was go
ing to charge us a heap more for guano
this year than you ever did before, and
saying as how you would have to do
that to keep even with the other trust
business,and as how you couldent break
a farmer no how. You are right there,
Mr. Rockfellow, you can't break a
farmer until you break his neck. But
we ain't going to let you set down on
on us that way. Our advice to you is to
build a big shed somewhere and pile up
all your guano under it and let it stay
there until we call for it, and if we
never call tor it. don't think the time
long. We have to use your kerosene
oil but we don't have to buy your guano.
We are going to experiment on a big
compost pile this year.
That would be a pretty big pill to
swallow but we can do it, and I say lets
swallow pill, box and all if they don't
get the prices of guano right. It is not
a fact that we are obliged to use guano.
No sir, it would be pretty tough for a
while. But we could very well swallow
that, along with the other tough things
that have to go. We wouldent make
as much cotton but we'd have less ex
pense. We don't bestir ourselves to
make enough home-made manure, any
how. 1 believe it, would be a God-send
to the farmer if eveszy pound of guano
in the U. S. could be destroyed, or put
beyond the farmers reach for one year
just to throw the farmer on his own re
sources. and let him prove to the world
and himself what he could do. And I
tell you it would surprise you, for the
farmer is one of the most resourceful
animals that lives. Why he can live on
brierberries one half the year and go
fishing the other half if necessary. Now
look here fellows, make up your minds
to work harder than you ever, did,
make more home- made manure, buy
less guano and next, fall pay out and be
