The State Democratic Conven
tion for 1910 is now of the past
and after all of the r evolutionary
resolutions adopted by certain
county conventions to restrict the
primary to a certain few the con
vention by a very decisive major
ity refused to be caught in the
drag net, and it is with sincere
pleasure that we announce to the
people of Clarendon that its del
egation voted to a man against
the attempted elimination of the
unregistered white vote of the
State. from participation in the
primary. Had those who favor
confning the-yote in the primary
to the registered voter succeed
ed, the next step would have been
to force a re-registration. The
scheme was a shrewd one of long
sighted range, and we say now
that while the attempt did not
succeed this time, we sound a
warning to the masses that un
less they take a keener interest
m the affairs political than they
have been doing in the recent
past theyare liable to have in the
next convention a set of men who
favor curtailing the white vote so
that it can be confined to the
towns-and cties, and in this way
control the State. It is our hon
est opinion that the movement of
elimination was begun for politi
cal control solely. and the pro
moters of it are going to keep
hammering away at it until they
are convinced that the people are
alive to their intentions. in that
case they will withdraw their
plans temporarily, and wait until
they think the masses have again
grown lax and careless and then
they will come forward in the
hope to catch them napping, but
we say to the people, if they val
ue the privilege of having a voice
in the government to which they
must pay taxes for its support,
they must not become indifferent
to political matters, but they
should always guard their politi
~cal rights as they would their
ibs an element in this
State who really believe that a
certain class of people should not
have the right to cast a ballot.
and they argne that these people
are without property and there
fore have no interest in the gov
ernment; those who hold such
views forget that were it not for
the non-property holding class
there would be very little use for
property because it is the non
property holding class which fur
nishes the labor to the property
holding class and it is from this
labor that a value to property is
created. What would the large
fnaoies and mills do without la
bor? What would the shops and
stc :es, hanks and the other indus
trial institutions do, without la
bor? Yet it is the life of the very
industries they wish to smother
out from a voice in the govern
ment, and subject it to a condi
tion of slavery, for what isa white
man awithout political rights?
- It will-be adark day inSouith
Caroliha when the descendants of
the Confederate soldier, or of
those who inesponded to the call
of Democracy in 1876 are depriv
ed the right of -franchise, or are
to be subjected to the same con
ditions as the negro of today in
order that they may have a voice
in the government their fathers
made sacrifices to redeem. We
believe that should such an im
position be imposed upon white
men it will bring on a revolution
that the revolution of 1890 will
be a gentle zephy ir. comparison
There is a bunch of women go
ing over the State calling them
selves "Western Bloomer Girls,"
playing ball with the local young
men, who should be at better em
ployent. The professional fe
oale ball players hit a town and
demoralize it. and we do not see
why the authorities permit them
to exhibit their brazenness.
A son of Gen. Wade Hampton,
McDffie Hampton of Columbia.
has announced himself a candi
date for railroad commissioner.

The country at large mourns
with Charileston in its loss of
that most excellent gentlemen,
and profound lawyer. A. Mark
ley Lee, Esq. It was our priv
ilege to have known him well,
and we are sure that no man bad
more pleasing manners than~ he,
and none more' ready to extend
the hand of welcome to the city
he loved so well. His death is a
distinct loss, not only to Char
leston. but to the State, for it is
such characters that the State
must pride itself upon. Mr. Lee
had many admirers throughout
South Carolina. -They admired
him for bhis magnificient man
hood, and his great ability. He
was a student, a scholar, and a
The State of Monday makes
the observation, "A surprising
number of sensible South Caro
linians are refusing to run for
office this year." Why are they
sensible in refusing? Is it be
cause they know there is no
chance of winning, or are they
of the weak spine faith. afraid
to put their chances to the test,
or is it they have not had their
urming sufficient'y worked up?
The Rev. Brooks Lawrence,
superintendent of the Alabama
Anti Saloon League, said last
Sunday, referring to the recent
State primary in which the Pro
bitionists lost ground, "the peo
ple of Alabama are passing
through the valley of humilia
tion. Greed. seltishness, and
unbelief are the three causes for
the recent political reverses of
the Prohibitionists." We agree
with this divine in that greed
and seltishuess had much to do
with the downfall of the prohi
bition leaders in thac State,
many of whom were in the move
ment from seltish motives, and
they were not sincere in their
professions, and as soon as the
sincere Prohibitionists discover
ed they had been hoodwinked
they aided in the repudiation of
these false gods. Greed for office
and power, seltishness, was the
controlling influence, and un
belief in the cause professed will
bring reaction to any movement.
Is the liquor question settled in
this county? We understand that
the Prohibitionists insist upon
wanting a representative who
stands for prohibition. If this is
true, then the question is not at
all settled, and no. man matters
not who he is should be permit
ted to gum-shoe his way in the
contest for preferment. A man
cannot pat the Prohibitionists on
the bank and say, "I am with
you," and turn around to the Lo
cal Optionists and say, "the liq
or question is settled." He must
take a position and sink or swim
with it, for itisasubject that is in
teresting the people. So far as
county affairs are concerned the
liquor question is tixed for four
years from the day the dispensary
was voted out, but there is a r-zeat
difference in having the '.. v to
remain as it is now. and fixing it
so that it shall take away the
right of localself-government. In
Alabama so long as the Prohibi
tionists were content to abide the
will of public sentiment and per
mit the principle of local self
government, just solong was pro
hibition gradually and sure gain
ing, but the moment it was un
dertaken to force measures by
nailing it hard and fast into the
onstitution, from that moment
there was a revolt and the masses
rose up, repudiated the leaders
and they are now turning their
fces towards local option- We
are similarly circumstanced in
this county and state.
The Yorkville Enqurier, one of
the best, if not the best country
paper in the State, is away oxf in
the matter of confining the yotes
ents as the general election.
Jsuall' the Enquirer is very
sound in its arguments, and as a
rule is a defender of the masses
against the encrochments of the
classes, but upon this vital ques
tion we find it arguing the propo
siion from a standpoint which is
repugnant to a free people. In
speaking of the action of the late
democratic convention, it holds
out hope that the conspirators
who are seeking to disfranchise
a large portion of the -white peo
ple of this State by imposing up-I
n them certain burdens which
hey hope will not be heeded, will
yetsucceed, it says: ''The change
will come in time, we think, and
when it does come it may be in
terpreted to mean the triumph of
the very sound and comprehen
sive principle that the country
should be governed by the people
who contribute most to its sup
port." That is the milk in the
ocoanut. "That the country
should be governed by the people
who contribute most to its sup-1
port." If this is not a plain state
ment we know not a plainer way
of stating a purpose. The En
quirer has verified our judgment
as to the conspiracy on foot to
disfranchise a large elementof the
white vote of the. State so as to
put the government in the hands
of a few men who have grown rich
from the sweat and toil of the
laboring classes. The govern
ment cannot be run on the meth
ods of corporations, thatthe stock
holders vote according to the
amount of stock they own, but
every citizen who manages to
keep out of the penitentiary is
promised equal rights; there
shall not be in this free republic
a monied aristocracy, pampered
very often upon ill gotten wealth,
and to say these should have ex
tra privileges because they con
tribute to the government in the
way of taxation. is totally a; va
riance with the principles of free
government. This government is
founded upon the principle of,
"equal rignts to all and special
privileges to none, "it was for this
grand principle the founders of
this govern ment shed their blood,
and it was for this principle that
the men in 1860 shouldered their
muskets, and it was for this prin
ciple that Wade Hampton march
ed from the mountains to the sea,
and it was for this principle the
people have always given their
support to a movement that had
its preservation for its purpose.
They never would have consent
ed and never will consent to the
doctrine laid down by the Enquir
er, "That the country should be
governed by the people who con -
tribute most tn its support.e
In the preceedings before the
supreme court in the case of the
Carolina Glass Company the
names of the stockholders of the
company are given. It will be
recalled, this newspaper has
been asking The State to give
these names to the public, but it
would not do so, that is. we have
never seen where it ever pub
lished these names, but now the
attorneys for the company in
their pleadings., name the gentle
men, And so far as we know,
they are among Columbia's most
enterprising business men, but
what puzzles us is the refusal of
The State to give these names
when they were asked for. The
dispensary commission has made
a serious charge against these
Columbia business men, and it
matters not how high they stand
in business, or social circles,
why should The State conceal
from the public their names,
after such a serious charge re
fiected upon their integrity was
made, not by us, but by a legally
constituted court, with the duty
imposed upon it to ferret out who
has been robbing the State of
South Carolina; this court al
leged the Carolina Glass Com
pany has swindled the taxpayers
out of thousands of dollars, and
when the names of these people
were asked of The State, that
newspaper gets out of humor
and not only refused to publish
the names, but became insulting.
Now the names furnished the
court by the company's attorney
are, Thomas Taylor. Dr. B. W.
Taylor, Benj. F. Taylor, W. G.
Childs, E. G. Seibels, John J.
Seibels, W. B. S. Whaley. C. A.
Norton. W. S. Reamer, Harry
Williams, and D. B. Miller. Cer
tain transters of stock were
made so at the time of the report
Wilie~Jone's name is added to
the list of stockholders. Every
one of these gentlemen are iden
titied with Columbia's business
interests. and most of them are
interested in the banks of that
city, and some of them, we think
are also associated in business
with the president of The State
Company, but because of the
prominence and the association
of these gentlemen. it is a mys
tery The State should have
created a suspicion there was
"something rotten in Denmark,"
by refusing to publish the names
when there was a polite request
made for it to be done. How
ever. the public is now in pos
session of the names of the men
the dispensary commission
charges with robbing the tax
payers, and notwithstanding the
ine tribute paid them by their
attorney in his argument, it does
not remove the stain from their
caracters that was put upon
themr by this commission.
