to huvo said i" recent speech,
that ''it was no honor to be among

MAN will find it uphill business to
make tho good people of South
Carolina, the red-shirt democra
cy ot" the Stat >, believe that in the
famous struggle ofthat memorable
year, 1880, that tho domo eratic vo
ters made a mistake, and elected
"debased and corrupt" mon.
Yet, this ls the term lo- used. Ile
suv- "coterie of debased and cor
rupt men who have governed tu*
since '7i?." HAMPTON, SIMPSON,
JETER, ITAOOOD und THOMPPON
have occupied the gubernatorial
chair since the democratic party
has been in power. These gentle
men, whoso record-; in private or
public life will compare favorably,
not only with Mr. TILLMAN", but
any man living, aro now called
"debased and corrupt." Do the
farmers of South Carolina endorse
Mr. TILLMAN say- his one object
is to benefit farmers. He is a
"wool hut" and a "one-gallus" man.
His movement is md political.
The Abbeville Press and Banner
reports him as ming these strong
words: "Cod forbid that I should
be so low and debased as ta meet
and commingle willi that low
crowd at Columbia, unless 1 go
there as a man. intending to do my
"Low crowd al Columbia." Now
who compose that crowd, willi
whom be i> too pure to commingle '.'
Taking this utterance in connec
tion with the former speech, and
the conclusion is forced upon us
'that Mr. TILLMAN alludes to tho
So much for what be says. Now
let us look at iii.- actions, We sec
him ?a Columbia, at the head of
the ridgefield delegation, working
in the interest of a particular can
didate. What man should be so
fortunate as to receive Mr TILL
MAN'S endorsement, ls a matter of
intense int?r? t. After the w hole
sale abuse which he has seen tit to
bestow upon lawyers, and after de
nouncing generally tho conduct of
State officiais and the present ad
administration, he advocates the
candidacy of Him. JOHN C. SHEP
PARD. Mr. SHEPPARD IS a law
yer, not only -o. but a politician al
so. He has for ten years past, as
legislator, lieutenant-governor and
governor, "commingled" with this
"low crowd." and yet ?a prefer
ence to ( cd. RICHARDSON, who has
spent the best portion of his life in
the pursuit of agriculture, Mr.
TILLMAN endorses SHEPPARD.
We have no disposition to re
joice in the defeat of anyone, but
it ls well for South Carolina that
the high and honorable office of
Governor, ls still above traffic, and
cannot bc reached by combinations.
"The College and Tree Tuition.*'
EDITORS HERALD:-The AD
VERTISER in its last ls lue says:
"Some warm friends of tho College,
(The South < landina ( !ollcge) ure be
ing led to advocate ( barging a tui
tion fee, because of the denomina
tional colleges. When young men
aro forced to pay tuition, the appro
priation must stop and tho stand
ard of this grand old college will
necessarily be lowered."
Will tho editor of tho ADVER
TISER kindly inform the public
why "the appropriation must stop"
incase a tuition fee i?> charged?
Also, why it necessarily follows
thal t!ie standard of the College
M ill be lowered ?-Inquirer, in Lau*
We take pleasure in complying
with the above requ. st.
The main argument used by those
who ure opposed to thc South Caro
lina College, has been that it Is
"the rieh man's school." They
have found, however, that tho peo
ple ave not to be deceived; they
know that when they have noth
ing to pay but board, (ami board
cnn be had in Columbia as cheap
AS elsewhere), tin! South (ia foll na
University ls the place f.>r poor
yoting men. Solids argument has
thus far failed lo stop the appro
priation. Men have looked at this
matter from n business standpoint,
and bu ve decided thai they arr'
willing to give one cent Upon every
hundred dollars worth of (lo ir
property, in order that young nun
might linvo free tuition. Now tho
question itr?KOs, if the boy*/ lind to
pay 40, BO, or CO dollars per annum, ;
would the people still bo willing to
give a stati> appropriation? Wc
think not. They would say, I aro
not willing ti) be taxed for this
Behool, il' my boy must pay for tho |
privilege of attending. [lenee the
appropriation would censo, and it
would be expected that tho insti
tution would bo sustained hy tho'
tuition of patrons. This would
make the very existence or the
school precarious. Even tho sola?
rios of thc professors would depend
upon contingencies. Mon who'
bave by merit attained distillvtiou
as professors, would scarcely come
from institutions whore a fixed
salary is guaranteed, to aecept
such a precarious situation. It
would ht? Impossible to give a
guarantee, ns the number of stu
dents would depend upon the ti
liaiicial condition of the country,
