Gov. Tillnian told the Cleveland
managers In Chicago that If Cleve
land was nominated he did not be
lieve that he could carry South
Carolina on account of his financial
views. The Governor never spoke
a truer word. The very acme of
tyrannical party rule is obtained
when the wishes of the Democratic
voters of states whose electoral
veto has always been cast for De
mocracy, are ignored and a candi
date forced on them who oppo9os
every principle held by them, and
that action is adding Insult to in
jury when we know that his nomi
nation if forced by the spoilsmen
and ofllce-8eekers from states who
have never given and never will
give an electoral vote for the Dem
ocratic nominee. There is yet a
spirit of liberty left in the hearts
of the men of Carolina that will re
volt against such unscrupulous
No, the Alliancemen of the South
cannot support Cleveland, because
ho is tbo embodiment of tho plu
tocratic ideas that refuses to recog
nize our needs oven, and are still
further from giving us any remedy.
The nomination of Cleveland will
mean, if be is elected, that monop
oly will be fostered, plutocracy
protected and a very few white
men In the South will get to feed
at tho public crib. No relief for the
toiling masses; no promise of bet
ter times in the future; you fur
mers and working men of all
classes must submit; you mer
chants must say nothing, toil and
sweat and sink into the degrada
tion of sorfdom, but you must vote
the party ticket for fear of the
force-bill aud the evils of negro
domination. And when you vote
for Cleveland you will vote for a
man who never raised his finger
against tbo force-bill and who
openly encouraged miscegenation.
And you wilL settle in your
minds before you vote which Is the
greater evil: the shadowy possi
bility of negro domination or tho
continued rule of English and
Wall Street money that is certain
and unavoidable. Cleveland means
that National Democracy slaps you
in tho face and intends to whip
you into line. The result will show
how much the spirit of freedom
obtains, among our people and how
far they will submit to the bossism
ot unscrupulous politicians.?Edito

Harris' Lithia Water.
WHAT PHYSICIANS SAY.
Dr. J. T. Poole,one of the best
physicians in Laurens county,
writes as follows on March 37, '91:
"This Is to certify that I have been
prescribing the Lithia Water from
the springs of J. T. Harris, Water

Springs water, and take pleasure
in recommending it to the public

order, and especially for diseases
of the kidneys and bladder."
I have used the Harris Lithia
Waters in my practice and find it
