AWAKE TO YOUR INTERESTS.
The Democratic party of South
Carolina is to be re-organized
throughout the State on Satur
day, April 23rd, and for that
purpose the county chairman
has issued his call for the clubs
to assemble in this county. At
these club meetings, delegates
will be elected to a county con
vention which meets May 2nd,
and also to elect a member of the
county executive committee. We
are peculiarly situated in this
State. there being only one par
ty, and that party has absolute
control of the government; every
officer from United States Sena
tor down to constable is a mem
ber of the Democratic party, aid
whatever issues arise must be
determined by the Democra sic
voters. These conditions make
it necessary for the members of
the party to take an active inter
est in its organization, hence ev
ery man should attend his club
meeting, and aid in having his
club well represented in the con
vention, also on the executive
committee. There should be a
careful revision of the rolls to
prevent double representation,
and there should also be care
taken in the selection of a coun
ty chairman, a man who will
preside over party affairs with
impartiality, in order that every
candidate who offers himself be
fore the people shall be given
justice which he is entitled to. In
our opinion, no man should be
chosen for the office of county
chairman .who will be a candi
date in the primary, nor do we
think it fair that a candidate
in the primary shall have a
membership on the executive
committee. If the executive
committee is made up of candi
dates in the primhry, and the
contest is so close that the com
mittee has to determine the elec
tion, these candidates who are
members of the committee are
judges and jury of the cases they
are personally interested in, and
naturally biased in their own fa
vor. The rules of the Democratic
party are silent upon this very
important matter, but the county
convention can by resolution
adopt a rule which will prohibit
a candidate from being a member
of the executive committe; fair
ness demands such action to be
taken by the convention.
We urge the importance of a
-full attendance upon the club
meetings, because our political
system has become so lax that
the meetings are not attended
with the result, indifference has
few outside ofprospective can
didates take any interest in
the party organization. It will
not do for the' people to wait
until they have to face a condi
tion of corruption before they
realize the importance of their
-political duties, they should act
-now, and prevent if possible,em
barrassing conditions. How of
ten do we read in the newspapers
where a County Treasurer has
defaulted, take the recent cases
at Bamberg and Richland where
-the defalcations run into the
thousands of dollars, not alone
-with treasurers, other officials
have also defaulted, and when
the bond is sued upon,the county
-has a hard fight to recover, if it
recovers at all. These defalea
tions if not made good by the
bond must necesarily be made
good by the taxpayers, because
it takes money to run the govern
-nent and that money must come
out of the pockets of the people
-by taxation. Clarendon has been
fortunate,the taxpayers have not
been called upon to make good
defalcations, but unless the peo
ple interest themselves to see to
it that none but good men are
elected to office, there is no tell
ing what the future consequences
may be. Indifference is calculat
ed to open the political doors to
incompetency and corruption,
and whenever the people by their
inaction condone corruption in
our election methods, they can
not expect to reap other than
they have sown. The represen
tation in the convention two
years ago 1s sufficient proof that
there was corrupt methods em
ployed; just think of it, a con
vention of 2.500 voters, when it
is a known fact, Clarendon has
not over two-thirds of the num
ber; notwithstanding this false
reresentation, a ballot in that
convention showed a vote in ex
cess of the falsely enrolled dele
gates. Who is responsible for
such a condition? The people
who do not seek to remedy it. So
far as that particular convention
is concerned, it resulted in coun
tenancing corruption in the pri
mary which gave a vote that many
believe was very considerable
in excess of the number of qual
ified white voters, and it is
known that an aver-age of over
10 voters at each of the 25 clubs
did not vote at all. The vote
showed 1773, and if it is a fact,
and many believe it is. that fully
10 a t ach box failed to vote, it
gives Clarendon over 2,000 vot
ers, and no sane man believes
it possible for such an increase
in population or interest since
the election four years ago when
the total vote did not exceed
We are reminding our readers
of this matter, not for the pur
pose of charging any particular
man with responsibility, for we
propose to let the "dead past
bury the past," but for the pur
pose of urging the people to
awake to their interests before
it is too late. Every reasoning
man must know, if he will con
sider for a moment,where men se
cure position by corrupt meth
ods, such methods must sooner
or later creep into the offices
which they hold, and that is the
reason why we hear of so much
rottenness in States where polit
ical rivalry has unearthed cor
ruption and made convicts of
even United States Senators.
Let the people go to their clubs
on the 23rd, choose an executive
committeeman who will frown
upon fraud. and elect a county
chairman who will hold the
scales of justice with an im
partial and an unpartisan
hand, then send a delegation to
the State convention which will
endeavor to make rules that
look to the purification of our
election methods. If the people
will do this, it will put a stop to
slander and trickery, debauchery
and bribery in our primary elec
tions, and result in giving us
moral, good, and safe men to
conduct our governmental af
HEARST IS ENTITLED TO FAIR TREAT
The Hearst matter being pub
lished in several county news
papers is no indication that the
editors of those papers are in
favor of nominating Hearst for
the presidency. We take it,
these editors are disposed to
treat Hearst as they would any
other Democrat, fairly, and not
keep his literature from the peo
ple while they are urging the
nomination of some other Demo
crat. If the friends of Judge
Parker will send matter to this
paper we will take pleasure ingiv
ing our readers the benefit of it
and every other candidate for
the Democratic nomination will
be treated likewise. The edi
torial columns is the place to
find the editors choice, and so
far as we are concerned, it mat
ters not much to us who is nom
inated, anything labeled "Demo
crat" will receive the vote of
South Carolina. If Mr. Hearst
is the corrupt man, some news
papers are painting him, why is
it they did not let it be known
when he was a candidate for
Congress. If we remember cor
rectly, they went into ecstacies
when William R. Hearst was
made a member of Congress, and
some that are fighting him now
were among the number. They
charge he is trying to buy his
nomination to the presidency.
Will they tell us whether or not
he bought his election to Con
gress? If he bought his election
to Congress he should have been
exposed then, and if it was all
right for hi to buy a seat in
Congress, it must be right for
him to buy the Presidential
In our opinion the newspapers
are making a big mistake in
charging Mr. Hearst with cor
ruption at this stage of the
game, for it might come to pass
that Hearst will be nominated,
and these same papers will turn
tail the other way and bark loud
his virtues. Our choice for the
Democratic nomination is Arthur
Pue Gorman, but from present
indications he will not be nomi
nated. We favor him bocause
we believe he will come nearei
solidifying the party than any
other man so far- named, and for
the reason, the South is undei

for preventing the "force bill'

turing the Convention, and
should they do so, William Jen

THE CHOSEN SEVEN.
Our city election has been had,
and the chosen ones, are decid
edly the choice of a large major
ity of town's citizenship. Each
and every member of the coun
cil-elect received a very fiatter
ing vote, and we have no doubt
that each of them appreciate
this manifestation of confidence
on the part of such a majority of
their fellow citizens. We did
not vote for the ticket elected,
with one exception, our prefer
ence being for the other ticket,
not because we did not have con
idence in the personnell of the
chosen ones, but because we had
as much confidence in one set as
the other. We believe the de
feated set is as progressive and
as patriotic as the other, with as
much of the town's welfare un
selfishly at heart. We now be
council who will disappoint those
that are counting upon doing
things which will provoke opposi
tion on the part of even a minor
ity of citizens; we refer to indis
criminate franchises, and a
discriminating set of waterworks.
It is believed by quite a number
that it is the intention of a few
interested persons to have coun
cil install a waterworks plant to
protect the business portion of
the town and pay for same by
general taxation. In fact, we
heard one of the present council
say it should be done, and later
on as the town could afford it ex
tend the plant. In our opinion
council will not be able to get
such a measurC through by a
unanimous vote, because there
are men in that body who real
ize the injustice of such action,
and will vote to prevent it. But
should council adopt such an im
position, it may as well retain its
lawyer to defend its action, for
we know whereof we speak, when
we say there are a number of
respected property owning citi
zens who will seek protection
from such ar imposition in the
courts. This is not a threat, but
a warning to council that
although under the election
laws a minority is un
able to obtain results at the
polls, if that minority is dis
criminated against, it can pray
for relief before a tribunal which
does not govern by the force of
numbers, but by law.
It is the duty of all good citi
zens to lend every encourage
ment towards making the ad
ministration of the new council
a success, this we will endeavor
to do. It shall be our purpose
to give it praise for that which
we regard to the interests of the
entire people, and whenever in
our judgment council proposes a
measure which we regard not
essential to the general welfare,
we shall endeavor to point out
by reasoning our objections. The
council is made up of good busi
ness men and it is hoped the
town will be governed in a wise,

Proper Treatment of Pneumonia.
Pneumonia is too dangerous a disease
for any one to attempt to doctor himself
although he may have the proper rem
edies at hand. A physician should al
ways be called. It should be borne
in mnind, however, that pneumonia al
ways results from a cold or from an at
tack of the grip, and that by giving
Chamberlain's Cough remedy the
threatened attack of pneumonia may be
warded off. This remedy is also used
by physicians in the treatment of pneu
monia with the best results. Dr. WV.

a druggist, says of it: "I have been sell
