The. Se Argsm.
We copy the following from the
"Greenville. aily News," and en, 4
dorse it, hoping that all the p~ere
in this Congressional Disttict will
do the same:
The Salidi Argus~a is evidently
in an infiamed condition of. mind
because the Hon. George John-,I
stone has captured.tie'Ooone el
egation to the congressional - C0n
vention from that district, and 4
all the political Indieaions are I
that the. office holding days of the 4
Hon. D. Wyatt Aiken- are ata
Of course if our friend at Green- s
wood chooses to.work itself Into a j
profuse perspiration-in this weath
er it is all right, and its stat6- i
ments in favor of its special favor- e
ite may be accepted as honest #x.
pressions of belief while they evoke I
our wonder. We are willing to pass I
in silence as an ebullition-of cam- I
paign enthusiasm the declaration (
that Col. Aiken, who has been in <
office ftr eight consecutive years, i
"has always been a man of the I
people and never a politician,"
and the allusion to the other can
didates as "lattet- day political up
starts" who in 1876 were hesita- t
ting whether to retreat or remain x
neutral, although we believe the (
acquaintances of a true and tried c
and veteran Democrat like Col. R. '
R Bowen, for instance, would I
have some difficulty in reorganiz- i
ing him by that description. But i
we feel eompelledto ask of our co- i
temporary an explanation of this c
language with which its impass- t
toned editorial utterance on the i
congressional contest closes; 1
"Aiken is the man and the on- e
ly man yet announced whom we r
can conscientiously support." T
Does this mean that if anybody c
besides Col. Aiken is nominated r
by the Dempcratic party of the t
District the Argus will be deterred i
by its conscience from giviog the t
candidate its suppott? In other t
words, is the Argus so thorough- V
ly convinced that Col. Aiken is the t
only man in this. district worthy I
to represent it in Congress that it t
will bolt if any other man is nam- e
ed by the Democrats? If that is e
the position of the Argus does ite
receive the approtdal of Col. Aiken? t
Is he so thoroughly satisfied of I
his own pre-eminent fitness that he
will oppose any other man whom
the majority of the party in hisia
district prefer to hing, 1
We hope all these questions rill <
be answered in the negative, and i
that the words of the Argus quot- c
ed above, are intended to apply
only to the period before the choice
of the convention is made. How- t
ever that may be, we venture a E
small piece of advice to our es
teenhed cotemporary for its fuiture
guidance. Let iits language be t
somewhat better measured in fu- t
ture political controversies. Let e
ip defend its friends, as vigorously ~
as it likes'and criticise the actions i
of those. it opposes as keenly as it a
may' But such terms as "up- (
start," while meaningless and gen- I
eral, are inqulting and recoil up- i
on whoever uses them with dam a- i
ging effect. ''MaJt 1 B Murray r

[t is hardly approlkjate for so

inow, has never been remarkably
