Khali tho Democrats of South
Carolina allow fheir party to he

until they have been ambuscaded,
and then surrender without strik

Wo believe that tho Democracy
in tho State is in imminent peril,
and that possibilities of averting
disaster to it aro lessening every
day. Wo can think of nothing
which gives hope of protecting it
from n strong and vigorous secret
Society bent on its demolition ex
cept a courageous democratic or

Democrats in South Carolina is
necessary to prevent a split among
the whites and tosivo the whito

Retired from Politics.
Tho ADVERTISER is pained to
chronicle the fact that ah eminent
and conspicuous Spartanburg "Re
former" has given up politics. We
allude to Mr. 0. P. Barrett.
Mr, Barrett did Ilerculoan work
for the "Reform cause" last year.
His editorials in the Greenville
Democrat denouncing Judge A. C.
Huskell, Mr. Gonzales and others
were greatly admired by numerous
"llofcrmera." Mr. Barrett was
also tho reputed author of some
remarkable invective against tho
Conservative candidate for Con
gress from this district.
Mr. Barrett is now in jail on the
charge of swindling the mails and
has failed to give bail. Tho Ad
vf.kthkr is at a loss for a reason
Why Mr. Barrett's editorial labors
should cease. Ho should bo fur
nished with paper and ink and ids
productions would doubtless bo ac
cepted with thanks by Iiis friend
Gautt, at least we should think so.
There is no reason whatover why
Colonel Earrett should fall in pub
lic estimation because ho is in jail.
Ho has not degenerated in char
acter. Mr. Barrett could not have
composed the editorials which were
printed in theGreonvillo Democrat
had he then been less bad than he
Tho ADVERTISER remembers
with pleasure that there were somo
Tillmanites in this county who
openly declared their contempt
and disgust for the Barrett edito
rials published during the last cam
paign. We congratulate them.
Moan while, we rejoice that there
is now a possibility 1 hat active
measures will be taken to reform
Mr. A. W, Anderson.
Mr. Albert W. Anderson has been
appointed superintendent of the
Port Royal & Western Carolina
railroad and tho appointment will
give great satisfaction. Mr. An
dorsotl is one of Hie best informed
und most efficient young railroad
men in the South. He is a man of
brains and high Character.
Lailrons has larger interests in
this railroad than any other county.
Mr. Anderson Is a native Lauren9
man and his deserved promotion
makes the Laurens people feel that
they have somo voice in tho man
H ? inent of the road. His appoint
ment is hailed with pleasure
in Greenville whero ho now re
sides. Mr. Anderson Is liked
wherever ho Is know n.
Tho people who built tho road
aro without exception delighted to
havo Mr. Anderson at its head.
Mr. Jno, A. Chapman, of New
berry, is the author of n school his
tory of South Carolina which has
Just been published from tho New
berry Publishing Company.
The book is concisely and clev
erly written. As it is intended for
juvenile stt'dents tho narrativo Is
necessarily condemn I and there is
no preionso of elaborate detail.
ISo development or improvement
in the Ilteraturo of the South can
bo expected until Southern peoples,
: how that Ihero Is x demand and
a desire for Southorn publications
and it is a patriotic duly that
Southern authors and publishers
as well Khouid be given encourage
ment. Mr. Chapman has performed
n good work and Messrs. Auld and
Iiouseal deserve congratulations
foi their enterprise.
Tho mechanical make up of tho
book, printing etc., is excellent.
Tho President's messago is a
melancholy visitation to those
Western people who are begging
that a law be passed by which the
product of their mines may be
sold for considerably more than it
Is worth. It Is also received with
sadness by persons who yesrn for
the enactment of a law which will
have the effect of reducing the
amount of whut they owe at the
expense of their creditors.
To these two classos of citizens
the Advkbtiser offer's no consola
tion, ft is just as well to candidly
acknowledge that President Cleve
land and the Democratic Congress
aro inimical to them. They have
neither tho sympathy nor respect
of the votors who had most to do
in last year's Democratic triumph
and wo fear they will be left to
whine and complain at what they
will choose to regard merciless
treatment by tho administration.
between the lines of the mes
sago to Congress there is to bo
read a plain message from the
Prosident to his party. It is sub
stantially that the President has
done what he could to place the
party in an advantageous position
to fulfill the mission to which the
tho country has called it. The
tariff cannot bo reduced while sil
ver purchases continue. So long
as tho Sherman act remains on the
statute books tho solvency of the
natiou is threatened and all busi
ness will be unstable. Under this
condition of things Congress could
scarcely dare undertake any far
ronching reforms and any attempt
to deal with tho tariff question
would necessarily prove futilo.
Tariff relorm is In tho nature of
a surgical operation. It involves
the application of tho knife to an
unnatural but extensive growth
which has beon allowed to tako
deep root in our governmental sys
tem. It will be accompanied by
somo loss of blood and a temporary
financial depression, serious in a
few localities, is to bo expected.
While tho whole country is tremb
ling with nervous agitation und
fright caused by tho symptoms of
a depreciated currency It would be
perilous for law making of other
than a perfunctory kind to bo con
Mr. Cleveland is great in all the
ways of statesmen but ho is great
est and strongest as a Democratic
tariff reformer. In that character
he has earnod and deserved the
conlldonce of raoro than six million
votors and saved the Democratic
party from disability which but
for him would have probably lasted
for another quarter of a century.
It now lies with Democratic Con
gressman to accomplish their part
of tho performance of the task
which the people have delegated
to them. Mr. Cleveland has blazed
the way, removed obstacles as far
as lay in his power and made it

Twenty-one white free-hold vo

Judge Haskell with appealing to

these countenance an appeal to tho

There is moro catarrh in this sec
tion of tno country than all other
diseases put together, and until the
last few years was supposed to be
incuinble. For a great many yoars
doctors pronounced it a local dis
ease, and proscribed local remedies
and by constantly falling to cure
pronounced it incurable. Scionco
has proven catarrh to bo a consti
tutional disease, and thoroforc re
quires constitutional treatment.
Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured
by P. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio,
is the only constitutional euro on
tho market. It is taken internally
in doses from 10 drops to a tea
spoonful. It acts directly on the
blood and mucous surfaces of the
system. They offer ono hundred
dollars for any caso it fails to cure.

The Southern baso ball league
haa "played out" just as it always
does beforo summer is over.
Southern eitles are too small and
too poor to pay tlw> expensos of flrst
It would bo very much better it
professional baso ball was not at
tempted in the South. Base ball
leagues are very good things and
furnish u great deal of pleasant
amusement but it would be more
sensible and decent If tho mem
bership of the teams was conflnod
to amateurs. It would be impossi
ble for amateurs to spend four or
Ave months at baso ball to the ne
glect of their regular business but
experience clearly shows that the
South docs not desire so much of
the game as tho professional leagues
It would be a practical scheme
for a leaguo of amateurs to bo or
ganized among Southern cities, tho
teams of which should each take,
say, one trip, visiting all tho others,
during tho season. Amateur
leagues among tho smallor towns
would do much to mako (he gamo
more interesting and popular.
And that tlrod feeling, loss of ap
petite and nervous prostration aro
driven away by Hood's Sarsapa
