Senator Tillman's speech a

readers in this issue, must be
disappointment to those wh
were expecting hot, sensational

It is about what he sai<

that body assembled. The Man
ning-Raysor bill which pur
ports to be a measure to purify
the dispensary was prepare<
along the line of Senator Till
man's suggestions made whil<
the candidates were keeping si
lent, and according to the sena
tor "he had something to do'
with preparing the Manning
Raysor bill;nevertheless Senato:
Manning claims the credit, an<
makes that bill the main featurE
or plank in his platform. We con
tended from the start that th<
position assumed- by Senato
Manning was not original, an
that he remained as dumb as ar

man blazed the way, and nov
the Senator in his Sandy Fla
speech confirms all that we hay
written with regard to Senato
An unbiased reading of Sena
tor Tillman's speech will dis
close that it is an [admission o
the dispensary's corruption
with an adroit appeal for a con
tinuation of the institution unde
a promise of getting honest men
to purify it. The Stat<
dispensary has been running
over 13 years, and from the firs
year of its existence it has beer
under suspicion. The suspicion
began when the people discov
ered that the books of the insti
tution had no rebates recorde<
upon them, and it is conceded b;
the authorities, the State wa
entitled to rebates at that ,time
The suspicions became so strong
the legislature sought means t
reinstate the concern in the put:
lic confidence by legislating th
State officers off from the boar<
-of control, and electing a boar<
by the general assembly; unde
this arrangement the dispensar;
got no better fast,but to the con
trary it got worse, the corrup
Stionists became more and mor
politically intrenched, and henc
more bold. The conditions be
came ~so bad that again the gen
eral assembly made anothe
change by legislating out of offic
the crew then in control, an
made a board of directors. Ha
the purification process 'bee:
beneficial? We think not, an
we believe a vast majority of th
voters of the State believe th
cancerous sore has eaten deepe
into our body politic,. , s dee]

we are told by the founder o
the institution that the thing i
corrupt, there has been a lot o
*stealing,and that all of the prom
ises made in the past were bro

give and accept more good prom
ises bytgiving the institution an
The people have borne pa
* tiently with the State dispen
sary, because they hoped i
would put enough money int<
the treasury to lighten their tax
es. It has not done it. The on12
-benefits have come to those wh<
were in the purchasing ring
*they fattened like pigs at a swil
trough, but the people whos<
confidence they betrayed con
tinued to live on hope and prom
ise; a't the same time their taxe
were getting higher and higher
their public roads and bridge
getting worse and worse, thei
public schools falling short for
lackof funds,and our courts being
weighted down with crime. Th
people are fast realizing that ev
ery branch of the goivernment i
becoming lax; our jury system i:
menacingly dangerous, incom
~pentency has made its stamp up
on the county government, an<
that because of lax. unbusines
like imethods in coniducting th<
public affairs the condition il
growing from bad to worse.
When Captain B. R. Tillmai
made his famous speech at Ben
nettsville in 1886, he claimed ther
the people were asleep, things
were becoming lax, incipient rot
tenness had taken possession o:
the body politic, and the peopl<
must be aroused to save them
selves from a condition worse thar
serfdomn. He continued along this
line, an~d his agitation aroused
the people from the mountainm
to the sea-it was a revolution
It did good, it shook the dry
bones, and the people woke u)
from their lethargy. If a revo
lution was needed then when only
the manner of choosing men foi
otfice was our trouble-for we had
no such thing as stealing amnons
the name of common reason
how much more is a revo
lution needed now, when official
corruption is as common- as
it was before 1876. The differ
ence between the conditions be
fore and after 1890 are so marked
that none but a blind self benefit
ing partizan will refuse to see it.
Before 1890 those in control of
our politics held the honors and
e emoluments of office among an
1 element not in touch with the
masses, but while this was so,
they administered the affairs in
r an economical, honest manner;
e since 1890, under the delusion of
the masses being in control, we
find that ring rule is more firm
ly fixed than ever before with
the difference, that the govern
e ment is not economically nor
honestly administered. Corrup
tion is enthroned, and honesty
- and decency lay prostrate, plead
ing to patriotism for rescue. The
reporter who covered the Sandy
Flat meeting for the State, quotes
t the Senator as saying: "I don't
r say those men have been steal
3 ing,but some of them got mighty
> rich on mighty small incomes."
And the Senator was only allud
- ing to the last board of control,
1 but he could have safely made
the same statement about. the
whole management from start
to date, and not hit far from the
mark. A large majority of the
people believe as firmly as they
believe the stars in the heavens
represent worlds, that the en
tire management of the State
dispensary has been corrupt.
GIVE US LOCAL SELF GOVERNMENT.
One of the main features, of
the Shell manifesto, and one of
the main planks in the March
convention platform in 1890,
which put Benjamin R. Tillman
forward as the leader, was Local
Self Gevernment. It was this
which appealed to the masses
1 and it was this which swept
_ everything before it. Tillman
made his triumphant march
through the State by advocating
that principle, and now when a
large iproportion of the people
ask that the doctrine of Local
Self Government be put into
practice, Tillman enters a pro
test and with the machinery in
thelhands of unscrupulous hench
men would force the people back
into subjection, that he and his
cohorts may continue to force up
on the masses a liquor control
system, against their will.
What harm can their be in al
lowing the taxpayers to say by
their votes whether they want to
abolish the State dispensary or
whether they want to have a
system of county dispensaries,
or no liquor sold legally, at all?
SIt does seem to us, if the people
of a county do not want liquor
-sold, it is an outrage for a few
Spoliticians to force the sale of
-liquor upon them; then 'again, if
after 13 years of promise and
trial the people find the system
in vogue corrupt, and corrupt
ing: that it is a moral and a fin
rancial failure, the fiscal system
-is on the verge of bankruiptcy,
-and the school system is retro
grading, and they believe if per
mitted to change the manner of
handling the vile stuff by bring
-ing its management under the
supervision of our grand juries,
there would be less opportunity
for stealing,the inducement for
~graftwould not be asgreat, and the
Speople receiving the entire profit
Swould watch it closer, why should
there be objection to give it a
trial and see whether or not a
county control can be managed
any better than State control.
Surely it could not be managed
any worse, there could not possi
ly be more stealing. We have
tried the plan of the politician
for 18 years. It has been a mis
erable failure. Senator Tillman
admits there has been a whole
lot of stealing, but contends it
was the enemies of the dispen
sary who got in control that did
the stealing, and we say it matt
. ers not~ who did the stealing,
. whether enemies or friends, the
.people were robbed all the same.
.When the dispensary firist start
ed, the State was entitled to
thousands of dollars in rebates,
Tillman was in charge, and he
was accountable to the State for
these rebates. He says he per
mitted the head of the whiskey
trust to take the rebate, that. is
what he says, but the people do
not care a rap what he says, they
did not get what they were en
titled to, and the thousands of
dollars the whiskey trust got be
much money lost~to the schools of
the the State, call it robbery or
simple taking, the effect is the

LYON WAGING A FIGHT FOR THE PEOrLr.
This we find in the Florence
"We are convinced that the
newspapers are not giving Mr.
Ragsdale justice in his contro
versies with Mr. Lyon on the
stump. Unfortunately Mr. Lyon
has the sympathy of the two
morning papers and Mr. Rags
gale has not, and no matter how
hard we might try at times to do
justice to those whose views of
fend us, we cannot help seeing
things through our especial spec
If the Times includes The News
and Courier in "one of the morn
ing 'papers,'" its charge of in
justice is without specifications
and cannot be snstained.
The is that The News and
Courier entertains not the sligtest
unkind feeling towards Mr. Rags
dale, of Florence, or, for that
matter, towards any candidate
for any office. When Mr. Rags
dale or any other South Caro
linian climbs high, The News and
Courier is ready to applaud.
It happens, however, that at
this particular juncture in the
affairs of the State Mr. J. Fraser
Lyon is the leader of those who
protest against dishonesty in of
ficial life. He is peculiarly their
representative. This does not
mean that his opponents are less
honest than is he. The election
of Col. Youmans or Mr. Rags
dale certainly would not mean
the promotion of a venal person,
but, none the less, the defeat of
Mr. Lyon would be the victory
of the exposed and disgraced
"'grafters," the Dispensary
thieves, the impudent scoundrels
who at this moment are making
a last stand to maintain and per
petuate corruption, who yearn
for the loot of the liquor busi
ness, who, like Achan, the son of
Carmi, not only "have even
taken of "the accursed thing, and
have also "stolen, and dissembled
also and they "have put it even
among their own 'stuff,' " but
who see among the future
spoils many goodly Babylonish
garments and shekels of silver
and wedges of gold which they
covet and would take, reckless of
the degradation of the State.
Against these Mr. Lyon stands,
and between him and them is the
The News and Courier believ
ing Mr. Lyon is especially fitted
to continue as Attorney General
the fight he has so well begun
and that his defeat would be cal
amitous to the best interests of
the people, aids the candidacy in
every legitimate way that it can.
The reports of the campaign
meetings have been, we believe,
entirely fair to Mr. Ragsdale and
certainly the intention has been
to do him full justice.
We are not opposing Mr. Rags
dale. We are supporting the can
didate whom thieves most fear
and hate.-The News and Cour
ier, 4th inst.
Col. W. WV. Lumpkin has with
drawn from the senatorial race.
Why he ever entered is a puzzle
to us, and caused us to be suspic
ous of him. When he entered the
race at last moment we suspected
it was for the purpose of forcing
Tillman to make a campaign in
the interest of the State dispen
sary, we hope we were wrong,
but we looked upon Colonel
Lumpkin as a man of sense, and
must believe he had a purpose in
entering that contest, but his
sudden withdrawal puzzles us
more than ever.
There was going the rounds of
certain newspapers the story
that the railroads would put up
a mint of money to defeat Till
man for re-electiou. Lumpkin
being a railroad man, some peo
ple began to believe he was the
railroad candidate, and com
menced watching for the barrels
of gold, but none was forth com
ing, and now that Lumpkin has
thrown up thesponge,we wonder
if the railroads did not threaten
him with a loss of job unless he
let politics arone and attended to
their business for which they
were paying him. Was it a choice
between "the pink slip" and polb
itics? If not,what was it?
The fight now being waged up
on J. Frazer Lyon candidate for
Attorney general is of such a na
tre that we believe Mr. Lyon
can go home without making
another speech and be elected.
All of this stuff about Lyon get
ting double pay is an attempt to
mislead the masses, but it has
failed. The precedents for Mr.
Lyon accepting pay for his work
as a member of the legislature
and a member of the investigat
ing conmmittee are too many to
fool people. If one were to be
influenced by Lyon's enemies,he
would think that Lyon's double
pay meant a voting of the treas
ury, whereas the extra compen
sation was only for a few days
during the session of the legis
lature, and which was less than
$100. The extra work done by
him would be a reasonable fee of
any lawyer at $1000, and the peo
ple appreciate this. It is clearly
shown that the members of the
constitutional covention, Sen
ator Tillman, Governor Evans
and others, received their regu
lar salaries, and also their per
diem and mileage as members of
The Columbia Record, an ar
dent supporter of the dispen
sary, is flooding the country
with copies of that paper, at
whose expense we know not,
even goes so far as to question
Mr. Lyon's right to expenses for
his trips 'he made North and
West seeking evidence to unearth
the corruption in the State dis
pensary. The Record is simply
over-doing the business. It de
fense of the dispensary is as ex
travagant as Candidate Blease's
assertion that there'is no cor
rutin in the dispensary.
Sen. Tillman protests against
the election of J. Frazer Lyon to
the office of Attorney General.
What difference should it make
to Tillman who is the chief pros
ecuting officer in the State? If
politics are to be "purified" there
will have to be some prosecu
tions and some convictions. Till
man says there has been stealing,
then why object to Lyon running
down the theives?
