The Junior Senator Paving the Way to
Trouble at Chicago-What Will the Senlo
Senator Do About It ?
REIDVLLE, S. C. Feb. 5, 1890.
Hon. B. H. Tillman, Washington, D. C.
Dear Sir: After my kindest regardi
to you porsonally, I write to-day to bay
that I have road with great pleasure
your speech in the Sonato chamber on
the 29th uIt. It has the ring of om
SPeoeChos in 1890 on State politics,w ob
lirst drew my attention to you and led
mo to admiro your good sense, courage
and ability, and mado me a steadfasi
friend and supporter. I was born and
reared near John C. Calhoun and bav<
I! ways voted the Democratic ticket.
While I am a Domocrat of the type of
.efferson. Calhoun and Jackson I am
thoroughly d isgusted with such bomo
cracy as we have exem plified in Cleve
land, Carlisle and their supporters. It
is only a name-a sholl; all the prinoi
pies of true Democracy are extracted
I presulme that li the month of May
our Democratic clubs will be called to
gether to send delegates to the Nation
l Democratic convention which meett
n-xt July in Chicago to nominate can
didates for President. and Vice Presi
dent. My religion and my patriotism
havo produced such convictions of
right, truth and duty that my cot.
science forbids mo to take any part
whatever in sending delegates to an
other National Democratic convention
since the control of the party has fallen
into the hands of the Shylocks of Wall
As you have doubtless soon In the
papers, the Populists and the free sil
vor men will both hold national con
ventions In St. Louis on the 22d of July,
and, after having adopted their plat
forms, will, by conferonce committees,
agreo to nomiorate the same candidates
for President and Vice President. I
Sl convinced that our only hopo to em
accipato the toiling masses from the
grasp of organized monopoly and te
,irivo the money changers out of the
teruplo of our liberties is to enlist under
this banner, and I have determined te
do so. I agree with you that our pros
ent financial systen is a "patent con
tivanco with thievos at one end and
dishonest oflicials at the other to rob
,he American people."
The following I think would be a
!ood plan t) car*-y our Stato ;,;'n the
aat.ional reform ranks. You are aware
that, the reforin movemont in South
Carolina in 189), under your loadershii;
.'aptured the Stato Democracy. Can
wve not capt.ure it again this year for
the genuine National Reformn party on
the issue of the fre-e coinage of silver,
and send our dielegates to the free oil
ver onvcntlton at St. Louis? Will not
this fu'ion ticket command the support
of all true Reform elemnts in the Un
ited Statteo.. vnd give us a glorious vic
tory )Ver Covetoisness and corporatt
greld, w hiclh arc the chief causes ol
all our tro)bles'' On tho silver issuc
the Denmmeraty of our State will be
nearly a, unit.
\Vi;l no such a courso send you intc
the silver convention with an undivid
ed State at your back, and ircroase
youur chances of nomination for Presi
th-nt ? This is what your friends ir
Soutlh Carolina would like to see. ]
hlie! Wvo that the cana idato who receiveN
the joint nomination of the Populist,
and fr-co silver men at St. Louis will
be our next President. May God a<
order it, is my humble prayer.
It seens to me that you can car r:
) the State without any serious divislot
amonng the D) 3mocrats Such a cours,
Sw ill heal our d ivkiions, and prevent th
or ganization of another pliltical party
5 and give us again true Democracy,i
-may be under- another name, bu
o wimt. in ai namo ?"
I hope you will give mo your view
Oi o tihe plant I have~ suiggested. You

such, preparoed to bolt, if need be, and

hiudor not to send delegates to the
National Democratic convention and
wouldl only bo0 placing it in the hands
of our gold-bug enemies.
if the National Democr-atic conven

us and put a man on it above suspicion
as to his loIyalty, we can then leave the

make his long expected break and will
endeavor to take with him to the west
or any other section offering the big
gest Inducements the solid Reform
vote of South Carolina. The first move
to the successful accomplishment of
this end will be the capture of the
May convention and the State execu
tive committee. . This done, the con
vention will refuse to send delegates
to the national Democratic convention
to meet in Chicago ; and the State
executive committee, alleged to be
Democratic, will rule that in national
affairs the Silver or Populist or the
Silver-Populist, as it may then be, is
the Democratic party. There will
possibly bo little restrictions in a State
But some leading and active Reform
ers and enthusiastic silver nion are
opposod to deserting the old party.
They maintain that the money question
is a policy and that the free silver
can be obtained as well in the Demo
cratic party as out of it. So that on
this line the third party people are
going to find strong opposition in R
Unless, however, the ring combina
tion do underground work, it is not
expected that they can capture the
May conventiou, nor that Tillman
can carry over 25,000, perhaps only
20,000, Reformers into another party,
whatever the purposes of that party
may be. If this draft is made on the
ranks of the Reformers, the deserters
will consist principally of those rabid
and blind followors of the modern
Moses, and their absence will make
the Reform faction-from thewlitaight
out standpoint-a very .much more
respectable organization. It Is there
fore advipable from every view that
those white men opposed to ring
rule and in favor of a respectable,
honest government, should remain in
lie Democratic party. The time when
their votes will count way be at hand
and to go astray now is to scatter their

is going to be one of the most interest

years. The third Reforiner will be a
representative of the conservative

it is presumed the incumbents will be

to be as undercurrent of sentiment
among some influential Reformers to
have on the next State ticket two or
three individuals who affliiated with
the Conservatives when that faction
was in good standing. Whether this

THE STATE ASYLUM.
Interesting Newso About This Excellent Insti
What has heretofore been known as
the State Lunatic Asylum is now pass
Ing through a most im portan t epoch.
The InstItution was founded in 1822,
and in 1895 it was decided that it
should remain in the city of Columbia.
At the reacnt session of the General
Assembly various acts were passed to
close up the affairs of the old lunatic
asylum and start it out as the State
Elospital for the Inwane. The boamd
of regents will meet t-day to put these
On the recommendation of the re
gents, Supt. Babcock and Gov. Evans,
the State will purchase the Wvalamo~e
property, which lies adjacent to an i in
front of the present pr-operty. This
lot of lanid consists of 108 acres and hats
upon it three buildings which can be
made serviceable in relicving the
crowded condition of the asylum. De
fore the buildings can be brougtht
within the enclosure of the hospital it
will be necessary to close up part of
I~'mwood avenue and to change the
course of the old Asylum roadl. Anti
cipating thts, the General Assembly
provIded for an extension -of Bull
street andl the defletion of the A sy lum
road so as to give greater privacy to
wards occupied by white female pa
tients. ThIs matter of changing the~
roads bas boon placed in the hands of
three commissioners. one to be appoint
ed by the board of regents, one to be
named by the city council and the third
by the cour.t3 coimmissioners. Until
tmd roadl is determined upon01 by tis~
commission the Wallace buildings
can not be used for the purpose of the
asylum. Thle purchase of the Wallace
property is to be met, with the Doro
tha ilx fumnd and a small sl-ec'al apipro
