Tho roadors of tho JOURNAL, who,

spoochvshould by all means care
filly road and consider the report
of it,published this week. It bears
out tho statement of thE JOURNAL
that the antis are tampering with
somo of tho Reform loaders, and
that there is somothing wrong, and
that efforts have boon made to sa

The JOURNAL has all the time
warned tho Reformers against. the
folly of listening to overtures and
fair talk of the antis, and is more

The Third Party poems to have a
pretty good hold on Pickens Coun
ty. That was perhaps the most
notable feature of to-day's cam
paign meeting. Whatever unkind
and mean was said of the Demo
cratic party and Cleveland wias
cheered, and Governor Tillman's
expression of his intention to loave
the party as soon as lie saw a ray
of hope in the West was applauded
to the echo. Governor Tillman,
however, braved the Third Party
itos by attacking their pet dream,
the sub-treasury scheme. Gover
nor Tillman was a bit mad about
the attempt to monkey with the
"Reform" primary convention and
everlastingly pounced upon those
wio are attempting to make the
change. He saw spooks and talk
ed about a vision of his being
swapped off by Gubernatorial can
didates, about thoir having solfish
motives, and about J udas and
such things. Who was ho talking
about? When I asked who was
meant lie enigmatically replied tha t

which had been prepared and
handed him. To the first, as to
his attitudle towvardls the State

answered this in his letter' to the
Alliance and would abide the
party platformi of the State.
Th'ie third question was as to
his supphort of the sub-.treasury,

reasons arguedl that it would
open a roadT for a corrupt andl

use of the lending p)ower.
He branched off on the letter
question and summed up his
viewes of Cleveland by saying
that if there was anyone who
entertained more contemp ht anl
hatred for him, he was a curi
