ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE.
Wie Campaign Cenamittee Iues
A Strong Appeal.
A CALL UPON THE WHITE PEOPLE
TO VOTE FOR A CONSTITUTIONAL
CONVENTION-REMOVING THE NE
GRO FROM POLITICS ON THE Mis
SIssIPPI PLAN.
Chairman Irby of the State
Demecratic Execut'. Committee
has proniulgated in cihalf of the
Democratic campaign committee
the following important address to
the ) e m o c r a ti c voters of the
State:
To the Democratic Voters of
South Carolina:
Tie executive committee being
charged with the welfare of the
party and the success of its policy
as outlined in its platform, which .
policy carries with it the welfare
of a majority of the people, we
feel constrained to direct the ape
ial attention of the necessity and
importance of the plank in the
platform adopted by the recent
Democratic State convention urg
ing every Democratic voter to
sustain the call for a constitution-.
al convention.
It is well known that there are f
groat differences existing between
the white factions in the State,
one of which has yielded reluctant
obedience to the will of the ma- .
jority. The strained relations t
which have existed since 1890,
with the factional bitterness dis
played by that portion of the State
press which has opposed the gov
erning majority with a malevo
lence and factional spirit almost
unprecedental, point inevitably to
a permanent division in the ranks
of the white people, for which this
minority alone must be held re
sponsible. Confronted as we have
been by a colored voting popula
tion 40,000 in excess of the whites
since the revolution of 1876 white
supremacy has been almost the
only test of Democracy, and its
maintenance the compelling mo
tive for submission after the party
had spoken at the conventions and
primaries. But there are many t
evidences that the ties which have
hound our people together are be
ing systematically riven asunder
and the public mind beig educa
ted to appeal to this ignorant, de
based vote to restore to power
those who have been unable to
command a majority of the white
vote.
The State newspaper, the organ
which was started by the Independ
ents in 1891 and which has recent
ly exhausted all its expedients to I
bring about another bolt and do
feat of the party nomineos, has
time and again ridiculed and sneer
ed at the possible danger of an ap
peal to the colored vote. This
newspaper backed by a large num
ber of other papers, is now urging
the organization of the so-called
"true D~emocracy" and boldly an -
nounces the purpose to ignore the
present party machinery andl the
executive committee as at piresent
comnposed as being representative
of the Democratic party. These
facts are knownm of all muon and
they can have but one moaning
the purpose on the part of the mi
nority to appe~al to the negro) as
the arbiter of our politics in the
campaign of 1896. During the
past s'pring and summer strenuous
efforts have beent made ostensibly
at the instigation of the Republi
canis to overthrow the registration
lawy. We have reason to know
that the Independents, as shownm
by the columns of certain news
papers, have instigated1 and symn
p~athmized with these: attemplts. So
that it cannot he reasonably dis
puited that there is ai desperate
faction in the State beont oni re
gaining p)ower at any oost. We
dleem it unnecessary to dlirect at
tentLion to the inevitable conse
quences which will follow d ivieion
of the whites into anything like
equal factions, and the bringing in
ot the negro as the balance of
Trho only reason why we are not~
now in the throes of a political
agitation, with contending factions
mobilizing the black army of vot
ers, is that the movement was
considered hopeless. It was a
quiestion of expediency and1( not
one of principle or p~atriotism
with many. We are glad to know
that the failuriie of the llot which
came to the surface on the 27th
of August is (Iuc to thme patriotism
and self-control of the large body
of conservative meni who, wvhile
voting with the minority in the
campaign of 1892, submitted
gracefully to its results and were
unwilling to jeopardhize the public
welfare by such a desperate von
hure. Fortunately the opportu
nity is offered to the white people
of the State in the coming elec
tion to obviate all future dan ger,
and fortify Anglo-Saxon civ iliza
Lion against every assault from
within and without, and that is
the calling o1 a constitutional con
vention to deal with the. all-im
portant question of suffrage. By
a strange and uncountable change
of base that class in the State
Iwhich has always stnod fr mmai
fled suffrage, and denied the ca.
pacity or the right of the masses
to participation in the government
tre to-day loud-mouthed in their
loclaration that they are chai
)ions of the poor white man whose
iote is threatened, as they say. i
Fvery newspaper controlled by
:his class is teeming with all muan
ier of specious and false argu- <
iients against voting for a conven
ion. They say that the white
rotors who are ignorant ad poor i
vill have cast their last ballot if x
hey vote for a convention. They c
hvoll with pathetic concern on the I
njury to the free schools and by I
ivory devico known to sophistry t
Lre trying to throw dust in the c
tyes of the masses. Plain speak- i
ng is best and we shall not mince <
vords. Wo propose to show that E
here is (loop-dyed treachery to (
vhite supremacy in this antagon- I
smi to a now constitution.
In the so-called convention coni
>osed of self-appointed delegates I
vhich assemblod on the 25th of t
'eptember for the avowed purpose d
.f nominating an Indopendent r
icket and appealing to the negro, a
he following resolution, which be- t
rayed the whole damnable scheme i
vas passed and the oponing gun I
or '96 therefore fired:
"Resolved, That while this con- I
rontion desired to avoid doing c
mything likely to cause increased F
trifo among our people, we believe i
hat the principles of Democracy,
he safety of every interest in the
stato and the instinct of self-pre
ervation domand that a hard and t
iarnest fight be made against the e
>roposition to call a constitutional
>onvention to creato a new funda- I
nental law involving the rights E
)f every man in the State without i
)roviding for the submission of its
vork to the people. We tender to
,he opponents of this iniquitous,
indumocratic tyranny and danger- i
)us proposition, the service of the
)rganization ho'in provided for
and invito then to join with us in t
ighting it at the approaching gen- 1
ral election." L
What does this resolution moan? d
te purpose is shown by the fact a
hat at the timo of its passage t
,here was in the hall a negro repro- a
itative of the Republican party, 1
yhlo a half at dozen colored and f
oyhite leaders of that party were a
waiting in the lobby of the State I
House ready to join hands with the I
[ndependent mfloviment as soon as i
It had been launched. Now who i
Lre the "opponents" of this "in- I
quitous, undomecratic, tyrannical I
md dangerous proposition ?" Who 1
iro invited "to join with us in I
ighting it at the approaching gen
ral election?" None but the ne
Yroes of course. This is shown by
Ahe offer of tho notorious ex-Con
rossinan Smalls to canvass the
State in opposition to the con
vention. Why (10 these self-ap
pointed guardians who have been
repudiated by the people appear
so solicitious for the negro's right
to vote? Plainly because they
want to be0 beneficiaries of that
vote two years fromi now. Why
do they want to preserve to the ig
norant and dlebasoed negro his bal
lot? Simply because their fell pur
pose is to cover the ballot of every
poor white mani with the ballots
of two ignorant negroes and there
by restore themselves to office and
power. While charging that it is
the purpose of the prommoiainti
faction of the Democratic party to
disfranchiiso the poor illiterate
white men along with the negro,
:os niot any reasonable man know
,hiat that faction being largely
made up of this class would not
lisfranchiso its own followers?
What p~olitical party ever commit
bed suicido or relinquished volun
tarily the control of public af
rairs?
The poor white men of the
Stato havo never received recog
nition until within the last four
years. They are now the arbiters
of their own fortunes, and, if they
miss the opp)ortunity of taking
guarantees in the neOw constitution
of the continued supremacy of the
Anglo-Saxon in South Carolina,
we predict confideintly that, coim
mencing with '96, our pl)Oitical
camp~aigns in this State will wit
ness a return of more terrible and
demoralizing condition th~an ever
confrontedI this people0, even du
ring the (lays of Scott, Moses and
Chamberlain. The reckless, des
[perate Men, whose Machavalian
cunning is now playing the double
gamne of bidding for the negro vote,
and claiming to be the guardians
of .theo poor wvhites, are bent on re
gainmng control of our affairs at
any cost. They are oblivious of
the fact that the vast horde of ig
norant negroes, once organized and
disciplined to overpower the white
miajority in each other being once
destroyed, the negroes inevitably
will seize power for their own
benefit.
We say to the white men, who
are threatened by the Inde~pendent
newspapers with disfranchisement,
that Mississippi with a colored
voting population larger than ours
has adopted a constitution, which,
without disfranichising a single
white man, has reduced the regis..
tered negro vote of. that 8tit to
Carolina alone of all th O
itructfd States still keepsthe 4 -
Ititution forced upon hor a
point of the bayonet by scalavag
md aliens.
The cost of a constitutional con
rention, while of no importance zn
omparison with the benefits to be
lorived, need not under any cir
uimstances exceed $50,000. There
ro many benefits other than the,
egulation of the suffrage to be se.
ured by changes in the organic
aw. While these might be ob
aimed by the slow and unsatisfac.
ory process of amendment, we
andi dly ask any sensiblo man
Vhat hope there would be for so
uring the adoption of a new con
titution involving the regulation
of suffrage, if it had to be submit
ed back to the people. It has
>een the settled purpose of the
rusted leaders of the Democratic
