It is gratifYing to observe tha
he doctrineS of the alliance ar
-aking root in the hearts of thI
Iople, and the prinoiplos of th
rder are being applied in the Io
ition of the greaticivil questions,
hioh are agitating the minds of
nr greatest statesmen. The alli
ae mon wore tho first to diag
ose the maladies, that are afflict
ig our government, and botte
imedies than they prescribed
avo not yet beeni suggested. Tom.
),ary reliefs have been resorte
,, only to aggravate the diseas
id leave the patient in a weakei
id worse condition.
With all the parade of tariff re
rin fresh in the minds of the
sople, the first act of the admin
tration was an admission that
the position of tho alliance was
right. Tariff legislation was post
poned until the repeal of the pur.
chase clause of the Sherman act'
was effected. The veto of the
Bland seignorago bill sooms to
have extinguished all hope of re
lief at the hands of the Democratic
party, and now party lines are now
iggested to be formod as the only
means of escape from the power of
inoney to oppress. This is no new
idea, and the fear that such a stop
*ould becomo nocossary has an
ioyed the best and most patriotic
non of this country. But for the
-emembrance of the horrors and
nmiliation of negro rule and the
lroad of another era of such ca
amities, there would be no hosita
.ion in adopting the suggestion.
'ho West cn lafford to sever po
itical tie and form now party
ines, but can tho South with im
1nity follow? "Is it botter to
uffer the ills we havo, or to fly to
thers we know not of?" lh rank
nd file of the alliance must solve
he question, and their decision
-ill bring blessings or misories, ns
- proves to be wise or unwise. It
ill never do to loave so inipor
ant a matter to tho (ecision of
oliticians and interosted leaders.
The p)eop)1 of the South have
een taught by thu alliance, arnd
ave accumulated much valuable
iformantion in political science.
'hey will not confine their consid
ration of the monev issue to one
sature, but will look at the sub
3et in all of its bearings, and may
emand an entire change of the
twa~ to conform to their plans. A
aggestion may be good as far as it
ces, and a step in the right direc
ion, but before the journey is un
ertaken, the whole plan and a
isp of the entire route should be
abmitted for inspection, so that
he people will know the dangers
f the way and the sort of country
>which they are traveling.
THE REFORM MOVEMENT.
Our anti friends have expressed
senmeelves on divers occasions, a
eing pleased with the prospect of
n early dissolution of the reform
aovemnent in this State. They
.ase their opinion on the fact, that
he leaders are wrangling among
hemselves for the best seats in the
ynagogue. This of itself can do
io harni and is the case in every
'action of every polhtical party.
:t is the sign of a healthy and vigor
)m5 condition of the movement
,nd shows that there is life and
'pirit in the cause; and a high and
audible ambition in the leaders to
10 prominent and useful in promo.
Aing and advancing the progress
md accomplishing the perposos ol
;ho movement is encouraging to th<
-ank and fil and stimulates inter.
'st and exertion.
It is true that some in their zea
mave said harsh words about thei
:ompetitors and will doubtless re
>ent in due time, but as long as the
nll be obedient to will of mnajorit

loino Ranadom Thoughts.
Who of tho old people can toll
us if it was the 15th of April or the
15th of May (Sunday) in 1849,
when the snow fell? I think it
was April. The next morning there
was a heavy frost and killed the
wheat, at least bit it down.
It had been unusually forward
How many of the farmers have
seen the result of the experiment
of dotasling corn on the Clemson
College farm last year? By top.
ping alternate rows just as the
tassels appeared, the yield of the
topped rows was 18 or 19 bushels
per acre, while the untopped was
only 13 bushels?
Corn made one or two bushels
more to the acre where the fodder
was not pulled. Is it not a pity
that we ean not top all the corn,
sinco we would have more time by
coilnuencing s@ early to work at it
and we would save the damage
from the August and Septembei
galos, as the corn would not bloN%
ilown? I think we ought to notic(
these experiments, especially since
cotton is getting so low. Had yot
thought that a reduction of thre
cents por lb. means $60.00 off foui
500 lb. bales of cotton. A gooi
-rop on 10 acres ought to yiol(
that. Two hands and a hors'
ought to make 8 bales on 20 acres
And there is off that $120.00 o
$60.00 to each hand or $40.00, i
you count the horse a hand. Tha
makes a difference in the pocket.
Ought we not havo a lower as
sessmnent? Common sense is th
best guide in business.
Can not some one give us some
thing about the drainage law
WVould not some more legislatioi
be beneficial on this line? Somi
fine farms in this and the adjoini
ing counties are worthless the
have been very valuable. Iti
stated in the History of the Stat'
gotten up and pubbished by th
Agricultural department,that ther
is 600,000 acres of land below Cc
lumbia, that was once cultivate
and yielded 50 per cent more tha:
the wholo State now produces, i. <
in corn. But as that is such a fia
country it may never be reclaimed
but it is different hero with grea
fall in the streams. Times ar
tight, and tightening rapidly. S
I think it behooves us to leoo

From the Easley Democrat, April 13.
As Mr. Joseph Looper, jr., was
returning from Easley, on Wednos
day last, with a coffin for his moth
er, when near the Academy he met
some of the children on a bicycle,
the mule he was driving became
frightentd and in turning around
suddenly throw Mr. Looper out of
the wagon very painfully hurting
him, so much so that lie had to be
carried home in a buggy. His
wounds are not thought to be seri
A supposod attempt at h1 0 u s e
burning was made on Saturday
night last in the Maynard section
of this county. It appoars that
Mr. John Wimpey, who lives in a
house alone, had cause to leave
home on Saturday evening. After
?dark parties in passing discovered
that some one had set fire to thn
woods and an old straw field right
close to the house, and in a direc
tion that the wind would blow the
fire to the house. There are very
strong suspicions as to who did it.
It is thought to have been done
from purely malicious cussedness.
.Mrs. Joseph' Looper, of the Cross
al Road section, who has been con
a fined to her bed for several months,
*died at the residence of her hus
tband on the morning of the 11th
Linstant. Mrs. Looper was some
t thing over 86 years old, and had
e raised a family of sixteen children.

-Selntor Zeb Vance Dead.
Washington, April 14.-Sena
tor Relulon Vance of North Car
olina died at his residence, 1627
Massachusetts avenue, at
10:45 o'clock to-night. The Sen
etor had not been in good health
for the past year and in the ear
ly part of the sension of Congress
was compelled to abandon his
Sentorial duties and take a trip
to Florida in the hope of recu
perating. His trip proved beno
ficial and on hib return to Wash
ngton he was able for a while
to partially resume his official
duties. His improvement, how
over, did not continue long and
for the last few weeks he has
been confined to his home. He
was practically and invalid, but
lately has been able to receive a
few intimate friends and super
intend the looking aftor the in.
terests of his constituents. Du
ring the pa st week he has been
reported as doing as well as
could be expected and the seri
ous change for the worse to-day
was. wholly unexpected.
Shortly before 11 o'clock to-day
he had an attack of apoplexy
and became unconscious, regain
ing consciousness only a few
minutes before his death. His
wife, Thomas Allison, Harry
Hartin, Mr. and Mrs. Charle
Vance, Judge and Mrs. Houke
and Rev. Dr. Pitzer and Drs.
W. W. Johnson and Ruffin were
at his bed-side when he died.
General Mershaw Dead.
News reached here yesterday
of the death on Thursday night
at 10:30 o'clock, at Camden, his
home, of Gen. J. B. Kershaw.
His (loath was not unexpected,
as he had been in ill health for
The news caused sadness in the
city and at the State House, and
all the State officers decided to
go to Camden in a body this
morning to attend the funeral
to be held in the Episcopal
Chief Justice McIver, of the
Supreme Court, telegraphed a
message of condolence to the
family of the distinguished son
of South Carolina. Other mes
sages were atlso sent.
In memory of the man who
had adorned the bench of South
Carolina for many years, em
blems of mourning werd placed
in the Court House, the Court of
Common Pleas being in season.
General Kershaw was the
postmaster at Camden and was
also engaged in conpleting the
records of the South Carolina
soldiers in the late war-Colum.
It seems the policy of nmany
Reform candidates to attempt to
elect themselves on what the Re
form party has accomplished al
ready-making its record the
sole reason for its existence.
They, by confining their speech
es to such subjects as the Coo.
saw case, the establishment of
an Agriculture College and such
lik~e subjects, only argue that
the mission of the party has
come to an end. Such is not the
case as this is a party of pro
gress and a party that fulfills
its promises. There is plenty of
work for the Reformers to do in
the future and what we want to
lgnow is what definite plans
those candidates have for the re
lief of the people aiid howv they
proposed to carry them out. A
general pledge to the support of
the Alliance demand won't fill
the bill as the people have long
since learned rit to trust glitter
ings generalities. The ref orms
accomplished in the State have
not helped the financial distress
of the people-andl will not-so
let us turn our attention awhile
to national affairs and make a
little progress in getting some
thing effective done. The peo
ple must make the candidates
understand this-Cotton Plant.
