STRONG CHARGES A(
The Junior Senator Atteni

PAnIS MOUNTAIN, 8 .
August 5, 1901.
T11o the Democratic Executive CoI
mittee, State of South Carolina :
OaNTujaMKIN : The ollicial notice o
the action of a majority of your com
miitte of July 25th was received by mi
on August lst, live days after it had be:
announced in the newspapers. Thi
published announcement was the lire
notice I had that any action affectin
ie was to be taken by your committee
I am now olicially informed that th
majority of your committee condemns m
course in the 8enate, demands my ret
ination and undertakes to expel m
from tle Democratic party. Twent)
one men have attempted to usurp th
powers of the 90,000 Democratic voter
of South Carolina, and as an incident, i
a meeting called foi another purposc
have hastily endeavored to do what ca
0ac lone only by solemn proceedings o
prarchc~iment, expressly provided for i
nt const.itution of the United States.
I hom my commission from the Dein
orati vltcrs of South Carolina. I rec
ogni o it authority but them, anid tak
tW oTrdei fromi any source but then
in mi, *r. a ue course appeal to ther
to: imigitoi on my course as a Senato

P'rs:msav I am indifferent to you
am't N. because nobody has made you Im
rar C or censor, and I regard what ye
,av- done as mere'y expressig t
mahee and fears of one individual, e
1. It. Tillman. But for this always et
and indecent inlluence ordinary respe
for the proprieties would probably ha)
prevented the four of you who are n
declared competitors for the seat I n
have thelhonor to occup'y, from attemil
ing to use the power entriuste(d to y'
by your party to remove a rival fro
your path.
As a citizen and Democrat o' Sou
Carolinua I am mortified by your act io
because it has brought upon i the Sta
the coIdemnaliol and ridic'ule of ti
press and the public throuathout I
country,. Unhappily, those wio are in
intimately acquainted with ou r cond
tiols accept the action of your majorit
as representing the intelligeiice an
Democracy of our State an 1 both at
made objects of derision. Against th

shall demonstrate how unfair, absur
and undemocratic your action is : an
I shall trust to the people to repudial
it when the opportunity is given thei
Your purpose is to deiy that oppo
tunity.
It is in stronig contrast with the blata
boast of Senator Tillman at (aftney
pIt me oil trial before ithe party on It
hustings with himself as prosecutt
As you know. I sought that test by I
ceipting a proposal of appeal to the pe
ple, but the Governor saw lit to fort
it. Now Senator Tilhuan appears
prosecutolr againist me1 in) lmy alb5er

fanw~us tribunal of Engl ish history. a
the most abhorrenit to Anglo-Saxoni
stinicts, seeks to exclude mec from t
party and its debates anid pullic assel
blages. It is your duty, as custodians
the party interests, to seek recruits at
to strengthen the party. TO save Senm
tor Tillman from stakinzg his recori
strengthi and fortunes against mine, yc
undertake to exclude me and nmy frient
from the plarty. Whatever your iidiv
dual mtoti ves may have been01, thle pin1
port of your action) is to facilitate thI
$enator in dodging me1 and to deny th
people the opportunity of passing on m;1
position and con duCt It seems11 Ito a

principles are fixed and to the priniciple
of the D~emocratic party I have beci
uniformly faithful. Party policies ar
dletermlined from time to timle by part;
elections and conventions, and no mai
nor body of men has the power to sa;
between those elections what policie
shall be the tests of party loyalty. Senn
tor Tillman is assuming the prerogmativ
of supreme boss and dictator to say wh
shall or shall not be regarded as
D~emocrat next year. I do not c1oncedl
any such power to him nor to you. II(

out of the party all who engaged in th
" auneilrt' Movement '?" Suppose tw
yeare after it had excluded all wha
favored the sub treasury idea ? BucI
action would have been unjust, tyran
nical and insulting to thousands of goot
citizens and Democrats, but not more st
than this proceeding of yours.
In his double character as prosecting
witness and attorney against me, Sena
ator Tillman is reported as saying be
fore your committee that I have vote<
with the Republicans " In importan1
matters " and that he has seen me con
ferrin g with Republican Senators. As:
will show by the records, he himsel
frequently voted with the Republican'
"In important matters," as all othei
D~emocratic Benators have done fron
time to time. It is frequently necessary
proper and courteous to confer wIth
members of the opposite party, as h<
knows and as every man of practica
sense knows. These expressions of hli
are attempts to take advantage of credu
lity and Ignorance. I do not think ther<
