Crow-Eat lng to Excess.
Tho Smith matter in Columbia,
has absorbed the attention of most
of our exchanges during the past
week; and it is not strange, for
never before bas that political par
ty which represents honesty and
good government prepared for its
followers such a dainty dish. It
the charges against Mr. Smith be
true, (and so far as we have seen
no effort bas been made to disprove
them) few men in the blackest days
of misrule stooped low er than J.
M. Smith as a radical Senator.
lint this man is now the demo
cratic nominee, for the ofuCC of al
derman in Columbia, an<i the ques
tion is, does party allegiance de
mand ti support of such a man. We
are fret; tc admit all that eanbe
said as to the disaster which may
result from a split in tho "party of
principle"-"the white man's par
ty"-"tho grand old democratic
party in South Carolina." We ad
mit that there is great danger in
refusing lo support tho will of the
majority and that the party lias a
riejlit to expect hearty support and
faithful work of its members, at the
same time we trust the ?lay will
never come when the voice of this
paper will be raised in support of
one w ho has sold bis country for
money and bartered principle at a
price. We cannot agree ..iib the
almost unanimous sntiincnt of the
state j ross and advise Colum
bia democrats to swallow Mr.
Smith. If lie is guilty nf these ter
rible charges of bribery and corrup
tion while representing this state in
flit; Senate, we advise no man to ho
nor bim w ith a votenow. As loyal
democrats we must often bend our
will- to -nit the will of the majori
ty,- wo must often oct crow, but
we submit lhat the crow is the last
bird on tho Democratic bill-oi-fare.
No honest man can sw allow the
feathered creature oflower degree.
Eike? and dislikes are to be?set at
naught,-we may support incompe
tence and even ignorance for thc
success ol' tho"?party, but it is ask
ing,' too much to support one who
has (hos prostituted his sacred trimt.
If it ?hould"over come to pass
that party fealty demands a disre
gard of the firsCprinciples of hones
ty in a candidato then the stability
of our government is not assured,
and we have little hope ior a per
petual enjoyment of those right*
and liberties that have been handed
down to us.
If no charge, other then that bc
was once si Republican, bad been
nhown against Mr. Smith, the vot
ers might witli propriety be urged
to "hold their breath and take bim
straight." Wo do not accept the
doctrine, once a Republican, al
ways a Republican: for, while we
admit freely we'.bave little affinity
for them, we must have a place for
mugw umps. Rut, we do bold to
the doctrine, oncea thief, always
unfit for oflice, even that of abler
The grand line of separation be
tween tb* Democrats and Republi
cans in this State bas been, hones
ty; and when this is obliterated, it
is fai vorse for South Carolina
than "Independontism." THK AD
VERT1SER has always opposed po
litical action by any organizations
or societies other than the "regalar
democracy," but when tho regular
democracy takes up a radical ras
cal as a candidate, it is unreason
able tt) expect that honest men
can "throw high their ready caps
in air" and vote for such mon. If
we would maintain a solid democ
racy, let us teach men tho penance
tiiey must do for past deeds,-let
Us show ourselves loyal to demo
crats and deal deatli to traitors.
Straining At n Gnat.
A correspondent from Now York,
in another column gives some good
practical suggestions, which South
ern peoplo may read witli profit.
Ono [suggestion-as to tho wagon
roads of this country, we mention
specially. This state, through tho
counties is taxed liberally for rail
roads. Wo build them overy year,
to become the oxcluslvo property
of rich corporations; lint not one
dollar cati bo drawn from tho peo
plo to carry on tho equally impor
tant work of building dirt roads.
Our people do not seem to realize
tho Importance of good roads. They
travel over mud-holes, bills and
ditches, killing horses, breaking
vehicles, ami complain of tho evils,
but nover for a moment seek the
mody. It ls freely admitted in
rsl place that tho present
modo o? working thc highways is
inefficient; 1st becausethe requisite
time und labor i ; not given, and 2nd
because those who superintend the
work are often deficient in judge
ment and skill in such matters.
Wc need to nave method, and tho
rough work. This will require dif
ferent laborers from those who now
throw brush into the highways.
By taxation, we could accomplish
wonderful results, but our taxes are
so high now, that a road tax would
indeed break the camel's back. Wo
cannot soe why the convict plan,
suggested three weeks ago, is not
entirely practicable. Laurens
County basst-nt to the Penitentiary
convicts whoso aggregate sentence
equal nearly 22 years in the past
twelve months. Why should Lau
rens County not have from the
penitentiary, 22 convict-, for 1 year
to equal this amount, (jr ll for G
months, or SS for .'1 months.
Mr. Norris bas addressed a circu
lar to various farmer's clubs throu
ghout the state asking them to'ex
press their views on tho State Uni
versity. Thetis all right,but if
this subject of convicts on tho high
ways had been incorporated in his
circular even as a postscript, it
would bear ten-fold more fruit in
the way of practical good to farm
ers. Unless the peoploof the State,
in whom rests the sovereignty, rise
and make this dc maud, tho convicts
will remain an expcneo to them,
and the roads will continue impas
Our representativo in Congres-,
Mr. Perry, is a member of the com
mittee on the Census of 1890, and
if it is in order we suggest that ho

draw a line of distinction between
genuine and "dry-land" military
titles. For instance, let us know

?Shiloh Agricultural Club met
.Saturday evening, on regular mee

chair. After the regular routine ol
business the Club proceeded to dis
cuss the following subject: The
best plan of preparing and planting
bottom lands for corn, and destruc
tion of insects injurious tw same.
Mr.G, A. Fuller said he first drain

preparation of land, can't plow clay

A Double*Beaded Politician,
Mr. John Sherman has thought it neces
sary to write to a Mr. Willis, of Tennes
see, a letter ?utempflng a concordance l>e
tween the dose of taffy he gave thc south
in a speech at Nashville last year, and the
dose of wormwoexl he Rave the south soon
afterward In a speech before thc Re- I
publicans of the Illinois legislature. Of
course, thc letter is written for publica
tion, and not ni n guarantee of good
faith. Mr. Sherman wants lt understood
that bc repents "with entire .sincerity"
every word of his Nashville speech and of |
his Springfield speech. The mero fact
that ii ls inipo?i'>lo to reconcile thc senti
mcnts of the two speeches doesn't bothci
hini in the least. Ile has speeches for all
latitudes and longitudes, aud they nro
made with entire duplicity every time.
Ile:- for or against anything according
t<> h is estfmate of the votes in it. This
estimate varies with time, place and cir
cumstances, and s.? Mr. Sherman often
Incuts thc reproach ot inconsistency uud
Rut in one rest '-ct ho has never been
inconsistent. John Sherman has kept his
eye peeled for John Sherman's leierest?
nil the time. His ns-umctl principles and
his words vary. He never varies. Reis
always cold, unsympathetic, uninterested,
and'sincere in his e ne purpose.
He would like to get both north and
south, and will probably succeed in tret
ting neither, lt is proper, however, that
he should nbusc the south. Ile helped do
it a wrong lu 1870 which ought to make
hint bute it, in so far as bo is capable of
nny hot passion.-New York Sun.
Tho Democrat lr Advantage,
The efforts of thc Republican politicians
to show that the D?mocratie part> ls em
barrassed and ..on the run" are not likely
to be crowned with success. They ore lu
tended mainly to conceal the fact that the
Republicans themselves are Inn state of .
tlist rgunization and on the verge- of n panic. |
The failure of the Florence letter to settle ?
Mr. Illalne's position in thc coining cnn- :
vasa, the lukewarmness with which Mr. I
Sherman's name has been received, and j
tho scattering search for a presidential
candidate among the lesser lights of the
political firmament, show that tho Repub

Tho Malaya ?>f Cape Town.
Tho Malays are no important factor in
the matters of Cape Town. They are not
regarded ns citizens, and, even though
born and raised there, they are never-al
lowed to vote. This ls because they refuse
to take part lu any of the native wars, and
the English, English-like, think if they
will not help defend tho colony against in
truders tiley should not l>o entitled to the
blessings ot English citizenship. The
typical Malay ls a tall, erect, black eyed,
sallow complexioned, stoutly built man,
with a disposition that will not broek fa
miliarity, especially from white people.
He has more than average Intelligence,
and ls of an amiable disposition when not
Imposed upon, mid always ready to eh.

and all aa a cless are thrifty ami indus
The typical Malay woman ls of fino
form and dignity of appearance, but it
ls only those who have been so fortun
ate os to woo them without their face
coverings who can tell whether or not
they are pretty or beautiful. I have
seen many a t>enutiful face among them.
A rich, clear brown shin, large, lumin

dark eyebrows, long, sweeping eyelashes,

than ono or two of thurn havo much
It may bo thut Mr. maine's friends will
prefer that he should noi stund aside,
even voluntarily, to make room for an
other Republican statesman. It may bo
that they will decide, in enso thc Demo
cratic wrestling with the surplus problem
should reduce thc surplus and not tho
D?mocratie party, that a vigorous omi
picturesque pers?ti?dity, unhackneyed omi
unconventional, Would more successfully
appeal to popular fuvor than nuy of the
bettor known flgnrcs.
In that case, Jeremiah Rusk, of Wis
consin, might be tho man. He appears to
have at least the Jacksonian characteristic
of doing his duty promptly as he sees it.
He is blufT, vigorous in language and
action, unspoiled by schools, a diamond
in thc rough. It would be easy to write
an attractive campaign lifo of sucha mon.
Jerry, tho foo of tho Anarchists, hearty
old Uncle Jerry, tho people's Jerry, could
be set out in showy colors. Friends of
order and property would be asked to
rally around him. Jerry certainly would
be great fun.
Put on with him for the intellectual
part of tho ticket u man like Phelps, of
New Jersey, and you would have a showy
ticket. Mr. Phelps would do nuance and

Sherman Trie- to T.xplutn.
Senator Sherman is In trouble over hi?
Nashville and Springfield speeches. A
Nashville admirer has written him a let
ter, imploring him to explain that ho did
not mean at Springfield exactly thc oppo
site Of what he Mind at Nashville. This
the senator undertakes to do in a letter,
In which he praises the honesty and cour
age ot tho Confederates, while denounc
I lng thr Democracy of the north.
Senator Sherman's explanation does not
j explain. Every intelligent man knowB
that the Nashville speech wns made to
j increase his popularity In the south, while
j his Springfield utterance was intended to
' please tho Dourbou irreconcilables, who
i insist on fighting thu war till the crack of
! doom. If there hud boen no newspapers
I or telegraphs to spread tho two speeches
I omi invite every reader to make compnr
? isons-in short, if this were bot the Nine
i tcc'.ith century-Mr. Sherman would not
i have been called upon to explain the un
! explainable and make a mess of it.
Thc senator from Ohio ls pretty old to
? learn anything new, hut he should be ahlo
. to comprehend that the methods of Mr.
? Faclng-bottpwayfl cannot be successfully
! employed lo this age of newspapers and
i newspaper readers- A public man cannot
say one tiling in Tennesseo and exactly
the opposite in Illinois without being
found out.-Philadelphia Times.
I.. t tTa Repeat lu
Let us hope that thc next St. Louis con
vention will rival ibo last St. Ixaiis con
vention in thc olomeiits which compose it.
That of 1870 was in all ways Democratic.
There was not a flaw upon its representa
? tiro character, or Its honorable and patri
otic purposes. Tho nomination of Tilden
wo? procured without the outlay of a
l>cnny, or any unworthy dicker. It was
the logic of tho situation that thc eminent
reform governor of tho Km pire state
should be tho reform candidato of his
porty for chief magistrate of tho nation.
Though thore seemed to bc a contest, there
was, In reality, nouo nt all. At least two
days before the assembling of the conven
tion tho friends of Mr. Tilden knew thnt
they had everything in their own hands,
and the little friction made by Tammany
Hall merely added o zest to the oceusion
and lifted it out of the dullness of nionot
j ony. The sparring between John Kelly
I and John Morrissey waa beautiful. But
j tho gloves were on and nolnxiy was hurt
by it. - Louisville Courier-Journul.
