U/tes waleleetcd with Governor
Kliman oiVtho Alliance platform,
and it whs Supposed ho favored the
Oeala domains. In ids interview
ho/favors tho immediato repeal of
the Shonnan h.w, bolioving it will
result in an instant relief to the
greatest numbers. Subsequently
he says other financial legislation
can bo \\m.
Ho does not think that free
silver will do what its friends claim,
ITo Is for bimetallism, but believes
tlio flnancial problem can only be
solfed by catoful legislation. The
pleilgcs of th? Democratic party
mado at Chicago should be faith
fully kept; if they aro not there
will be u reckoning.
The financial views of the stato
treasurer have caused surprise, us
the,/aro directly opposed to thoso
of the remainder of the stato ad
ministration, who stand upon the
sumo financial plank as the Popu
Adjusting tho .Judiciary.
Smith Carolina, it seems, cannot
keep her political secrets at home.
If that stato has surprised th?
world with reforms in Ibo last four
years, it will continue to astonish
its own citizens with political ma
neuvers timing the coming two
years with plot and counter plot
among tho reform factions.
Thore is a plot now browing to
rehash tho judiciary and sonn?
strong political figures will go down
in the melee if tho administration
scheme goes through. '
The Hon. Eugone B. Gary, pres

Tillman has made so prominent in
tho recent railroad cases is to he
made Associate Justice, if the pre
sent schemo prevails. Tho Hon.
Samuel McGowau, present Asso
ciate Justice, is to bo retired to pri
The greatest surprise will he
when it becomes known that Till
man h is set his head to defeat At
torney General D. A. Townsend,
who Is ambitious for the Judiciary,
till because he could not manipu
late tho dispensary cases as the
Governor thought they should have
been done. Then again Tillmau
is making a move to gather about
him men of more ability than he
has been wont to have for, as a
prominent reformer said to-day,
that it is tho only w.iy Tillman
himself can become a permanent
figure in politicos.
Tho plan to defeat Mr. Townsend
it seems, is to give to biln the choice
of running against Judge Wallace,
or of going in tho Judicial district
of Judge Hudson, whom the ro
farmers are intent on defeating,
and then springing tho Hi n. John
h, McLaurin, now membe. of Con
gress, and boat him. If Townsend
runs In tho district of Judgo Wal
lace he will bo opposed by the Hon.
It. C Watte, member of the House,
and in caso the reformers are not
strong enough with Walts their
plan is to throw Watts' forces to
Wallaco and defeat Townsend with
