Dr. V. P. Clayton takes up tho
cudgols in dofonce of the National
Groonback party, and defines his
political position clearly and delib~
erately. Wo proposo to say somo
thing in reply to his letter. It is
truo wo did learn somothing from
his formor comamun ication, some
thing that wo woro pained to diss
cover, that any porson should bo
found in South Carolina willing to
desor tho Donocratic party for the
so -callod National Greonback )arty,
an ophomoral organization, which
wo still insist is a iongrel concern
composed of Nationals, Greenback
ers, Labor iAeformore, Socialists,
,Communists and visionaries, who
are taking the advice of Dennis
Kornoy to "pool their issues." It
may bo true, as Dr. Clayton inti
mates, that THE NEWS AND HER.'LD
is "interested," .inasmuch as its
proprietors own seven national
banks, forty-nino tons of gold andl
geventoon square miles of silver
bricks, to say nothing of a doqzen or
two railroads, an oil pipe line and a
horse rail way, and go nothing j9pr
a living but clip coupons from a
stacky of gold, interest bearing
United States bonds, and lend
.money at forty-seven per cent.
interest; and we certainly plead
guilty to the. chiarge tliat e "have
failed, as public jouirnalists, to
.enlighten our readers" on the wild
psohemos that till most of the
"National Greenback" sheets. It
may b~e that thoe absurdity of thu
vagarieos of these financial visiona
ries has tauighit us tQ be somow~hat
~chary o~f inflicting our financial
,viows on the public, the more so as
.a very careful study of tihe speches
<of Tyurmnan .gnd Voorhees and
Ewing and B3ayard anid Bllaino and
Kolloy and Allen and Garfield and
-Lamar and Hendricks and S3herman
and Tildon and Eaton and Blutler
and such men, has not given1 us
thtcofdence i~n our ability to
slothe fihamoial problem that we
gmight gave entortained had we
read only one side. We' are muich
obliged for the oft'er to onlighton
ourselves and our .readers, ,but
must decline with thanks until wve
are assured of the character i~nd
,value gf the information promnisedl.
In regard to the pro-*ominonce of
the financial issneo we will merely
quote the language of our County
Chairipan :."Of what usoe is money
to us i~f our liberty is destroyed '1
You areo still~inth hands of tyrants

Dr'.\ Clnvton naks uno "oto fair"
and admit that whilo tho National
Groonbgck party proposes -to de
stroy the Domocrats, it also intends
to uproot Radicalis'm. We do this
without besitation, but ask what
consolation is it to. a iman about to
have his throat cut to know that
tho murderer intends noxt to boat
out tho brains of his onomy across
tho way ? When it comos to a
question of party life or death, wo
shall considor tho Nationala in
precisoly tho samo category as the
RLopublicans. Both are plotting
the destruction of tho organization
that mado the Union groat before
the war and has saved South Caro
lina since. Dr. Clayton prefers to
view the Nationals as standing on
tho samo platform as tho Demo,
crats. Wo have shown abovo that
they stand, also, on precisely tho
samo platform as tho Radicals,
which is more to the purposo.
With two parties in the fiold, tho
Democrats will win. With throo,
wo sliall have just such an election
as brought inl tho Republicans onco
As to Hayes and tho South, his
courso has alienated nino -tentlis
of his party. He is called a reiio
gado and traitor. His policy would
nevcr havo succoded hut for the
sup1iremiacy of the Dlemocrats in tho
House and a majority of the States.
Tilien never would have sufered
the Uinted States Court to trample
lpol01 the, laws of South Carolina.
Tho South is not safo under any
party but the Democracy. While
the National Greobackers would
be shouting themselves hoarso for
paper money and plenty of it,
every State in the South might bo
rmantded to servitude, becau so the
Grenbackori arc interosted only in
money, not in principles or liberty.
As to the leaders of the new
party. If old Governor Allen has
over quit tho Democratic ranks wo
have never heard of it, and we pro
diet that be will be considerably
advanced in dotage beforo he
abandons an organizttion in which
ho has been promineut forty years.
Ho is for grecnbacks "in the
.Dimiocratic p(t)y"-precisely the
course we advised our frion~ H to
take. On this platform are Voorh 1s,
Ewing, Allen, Joo Johnston, l an
dolph Tucker, with the Democra .s
of Louisiana, Indiana and a number
of other States. TVheso are good
enough compan~ly without seeking
new parzty alliliaiions. Peter Coop
or is much more distinguished as a
philanthropist than as a politician.
Brick Pomeroy has no standing
among resp~ectalo journalists. He
wvent up like a rocket and camne
down like a stick. Buitler and
Kearney aro still the most promni,
nent leaders of the party. They
arc monopolizing the hustings.
We regret t~o learn that the Feas
torvillo Groonboeck Club lhas been doe
liberately organized. We had hoped
that it, was the result of temporary
excitement. We shall therefore
offer no further advice to its mom
hers. But we ask if the party
should succeed in 1880 wvhat wvould
it do'? Issue $2,000,000,000 of
gr eenb~acks and have them as cheap
as Confederate money ? If an ~at
tempt bho made to pay the gold
bionds in paper the bondholder will
simp~ly go into the Supreme Court
to enforce his contract, and block
that game. ..Or, admitting that the
party came to life on one issue, one
act of Congress will per form its mis-.
sion. What will the p)arty do then ?
It can't go to Congress andl pass
a grcqnb~ack act overy year, and it
has, organized for nothing else. It
will then have to go to pieces and
its members evllb opliged to
gravitate back to the old( Dam ocratie
or the Rladical party at last. It will
be essentially an ophoemoral organi
zation, like the anti--Masonic party,
the Know Nothings, or lator still,
.the Grangers' or Farmers' move
ment out WVest, and the Commnun
ists in California. We prefer .to
stick to a party as old as the Re
public and destined to be as long
In conclusion we say we intondos1
no."thirust" at Dr. Clayton's ruling.
No Democrat can be a member of
twvo clubs at once, and we should
own argument to prove a fgrtiorH
that no man can belong to tyo
parties at once. And it is as much
a question whethor a man 9an
afford to leave a party as whotor
the party can afford to lose hjim.
Thero are serious dangers on both
sitdes. An Indopondent Democrat
is dangerous, only because he tonds
to dostroy tho party, not because
it is feared that, if elected, he will
not voto with the Democrats on
party issues. This being the case,
how much more dangorous is an
opposing organiz ition avowedly in
toled to destroy tho l]omocratic
A word more. THuE NEWS AND
Tl1AID is a strict party paper,
bdAtling for ho Democracy against
all comuers. All good Democrats
are allowed to express thoir viosys
in its columns as lomng as they are
not opposed to Democratic princi
ples. But it has no idea of aiJ
vancing the cause of an opposing
organization, of whatever name or
crood. Every party must establish
its own organ. Tim NEWs ANI
HTIMnD will ci;ticizo the National
Grenback party as freely as it does
the Republican party, and will not
fool called upon to publish a defence
of one any more than of the other.
Whilo ii. many rospects it coincides
in the financial views of the Green.
b:tekcors, it utterly condemns their
mode of rect.ifying wrongs. In the
present campaign, since there will be
no financial issues in Fairfield, we
shall have nothing morio to say on
this subject, postponing the discus.
