States senate has about monop

Senator Tillman,. op to date has
certainly exhibited a leadership
which is bringing to him favor
able commnent,even from the Re
publicans, It is true that the
measure represented by him or
iginated, or rather is endorsed
by a Republican president, and
a Republican majority is in the
senate, but notwithstanding this,
the Republican senators are not
unanimously supporting it. There
is much division among them,
and the same might also be said
of the Democrats. The senators,
regardless of party who are in
terested in the railroads are op
posed to Senator Tillman's bill,
and he will have a long and hard
fight to succeed. The outlook
now is that the rate bill will be
so emasculated with amendments
which will make it practically
worthless, and it will require
much parliamentary astuteness
on the part of Senator Tillman
to nrevent this.
If Tillman can succeed in get
ting his bill enacted into law, in
our opinion he will have merited
such a national reputation as to
entitle him to high considei-ation
from the next national demn
oc-ratic convention. Because any

whether he was rich or poor, be
punished as the law directs.
Wealth, social station nor politi

Editor The Manning Times:
In reply we will say your oditorial in
last issue of theC MANNING TIES IS
laughable indeed and your ranting
shows conclusively that you are suffer
ing from a political distempered im
agination and a dethroned reason.
When we wrote the communication:
for THE MANNING TImES under the
headline, "Hurrah for Tillman and the
dispensary," it was not written for the
purpose of creating any newspaper con
troversy whatever with any one, but it
was only written to show our position
in regard to the invincible Senator Till
man and the dispensary question, and
our disgust and detestation for a gang
of political turncoats and trators, who
had been elevated to office in the past
ten years or more, by floating with the
popular tide of Tillmanism and the dis
The readers of THE MANNING TIMES
can read for themselves the letter and
correspondence since passed between
the editor and ourself. and for them
selves decide as to the merits and de
merits of the writings.
As to last Saturday's issue of the
News & Courier, wve have not read it,
and consequently we do not know
whether we owe the News & Courier
an apology or not.
The voters of South Carolina will at
no distant day, settle the political ques
tion now before the people for the next
two years at least. and until then we
will "hurrah for Tillman and the dis
We vill again appeal to "the wool
hats to stand firm and be undismayed,"
reminding them again "that they are
the mainstav of the country both State
and Nation," that they were "the first
at Manassas, the 'last to leave Appo
matox" and last but not least," "the
bulwark of American liberty."
To let the readers of THE MANNING
TIMES know how Senator Tillman and
the dispensary stand in other parts of
the State, we will reproduce two quo
tations, one from the News & Courier
and one from the Columbia Record.
The News & Courier's quotation ta
ken from the Fort Mill Times issued,
we believe, in York county, and is in
reference to some one coming forth to
defeat Senotor Tillman for rc-election
to the Senate of the United States, and
reads, "Among those most favorably
spoken of for the race is the Hon. Geo.
B. Cromer of Newberry The writer
knows little of Mr. Cromer's past po
litical career, if he has any, but learns
that he is one of the champions of the
force lengaged in the present fight
against Senator Tillman. He would,
perhaps, make a fairly good start in
the race, and, with the aid of an extra
long-sighted microscope, get in near
enough to see the hoisting of the wool
hat colors at the finish."
-The Hon. Geo. B. Cromer like a wise
man has stepped aside and Senator
Tillman has an open field.
The quotation from the Columbia
Record is from a correspondent and
reads, "As to Tillman, I don't believe
there is a sane man in the State yho
looks for serious opposition to him, and
with his s6pport the dispensary will
again wki over its enemies. If there
had been clean, open, square politics
played against the dispensary there
might have been trouble for it, but
there has been too much underhanded
dirt in the whole thing, too much
blackguarding of character and vile in

controversies" political or otherwise,
we will write no more along this line.

The Hon. Geo. R. Jones of Davis, in
his dispensary arguments in THE TIMES,
would be more effective did he not ox
hibti such a narrow factioned spirit.
The day forwaving the factional red
lag has gone, and we hope forever. It
accomplished nothing more than- the
landing into public office of a class of
men who probably would never have
been entrusted with the people's con
idence. Another thing factionalism
accomplished, it created a whole lot of
bitter fdeling and enmity, and fastened
upon us a borde of grafters.
The people over here have no objec
tion to Mr. Jones advocating his ideas
on the liquor question,it is his right as
well as the right of every man, but we
do object to be characterized as trait
ors, for no other cause than disagree
ing with the sage of Davis. There are
hundreds of good men in Clarendon,
who served their country in war and in
peace, as well and as faithfully as
Jones, who do not agree with him that
the State dispensary should be forced
upon the people whether or no, and
who also are not bound to fall down
and worship Tillman.
These people resent Mr. Jones' ap
peal to "wool hats,'' and- they,- regard
it nothing more nor less than at insult
t their intelligence for any inan to at
tempt to appeal to them in such a man
ner. The people are ready to listen to
Mr. Jones or anybody else whenever
he or they have ideas to advance
but this must be based upon common
reasoning and not factional hood

The total vote cast was 60. For the
