Taft on the Red Shirts.
TaftIs report to the News ad Couri
or of the meeting in Winnsboro on
Saturday causes munch amu eiet 1nt

u olflcer inm every bush, ayd Taf may
have been thrilled with terrr by every
burrah for Hancock. That. wil i all
the hurrahing and noise nu violencei
wias contemplated, is best proved by'
the fact that, nono w:s comoitd.
Nothing could have preervd the
peace but the determihatioi by tho
Democrats tlieielves that it should
be preserved. The people of Fairfield
know full well how to show their
determination wit hout 'offering need
less violence. The facts o! Ihe mat ter
are about these. 11, was intudcd to
give Taft a retinue of red-shirts, who
should ride along on either side. ui t
the crowd was so great that this courd
not be carried inito ell'ect, and thme
masses flocking together from thrieeI
streets intoe pace madeC alt~OI jam1. It
was not knlown who had1( comle, and(
the men riding in the rcar pushed for
wvard to see who it was. Rlight here
some of the mcen yelled, "Let us get at
him," and somne (one, not haring on a
red-shirt, did make a grabi at Tt'
throat, but his hand was 1imediately~
wrenched away, and'Taft's collar un
buttoned. 'This was the amount of it,
and Taft wore his collar and cravat, all
the time he was here. This part of
his story is untrue.--During the
speech, one of the horsemn plitched a
riding switch over at Ta'ift on the
stand. This was the alleged "stick"
that struck him, but, as he himself
says, did not hurt him. Thmis wias no
outrage. There wuas no disgraceful
"rowing" at the stand, and Major
Woodward (lid not have to show the
disgust that Taft claims he did. In
fact, Taft got a much quieter hearing
on Saturday than he ever used .to get
before Mackey's negroes in Charles
ton., The crowd even lauighed hearti
ly at some jokes he told at thec expense
of the Democrats. This does not look
like the itirlated crowd he would
have people believe were there.
Walking home, as he say s, n Ih
Colonel Rtion, h~e was followed by
sonme red-shirts, but about a dozen
colored men and boys were between
him and the men on horseback, whose
only aim was to make the tiling ridicu
lous by escorting a Rladleal. Some
times they crowded a little close, as
horses walk raster thlan mhen, butt they
made no effort to run over Taft. Som'e
gen~tlemlen went to the hotel anud sat
with Taft, and had14 a very jolly time,
he it hero remarked, for two reasonls:
Airst, it was said that somie hlaif a
dozen of the crowd outside had an egg
apiece (fresh ones, as Tatt himself
says), that theoy p~roposed to make ani
omelet of' in hils hlat, and it was thioulght,
bettor t hat tis enl liay op~erattoln
should be postponed till after the elee
tionm; and in the next plazce It was
thoughlt just as welli that Tfrt should
be talking to lDemocrats as talking to
the IRadieal leader's or tile counllr.
HienCe tis kinid aittenltion to 1him1.
As to Colonel Rion's exceedilng
groat profanity 'Taft iSesp~eiallygo ~O~.

is conclusIve p~roof that the crowd was
