An Allli Scheme
he declaration that tho Refawmors
I havo no "suggesting" conventions
ds year ought to furnish us Ringstors
ictuals for cogitation.
In tho first place, wo being villainB
all and dosporadoos to boot, wouldn't it
do very well for us to coquette some
with villainy and hold u March Con
vention? Wo aro not sure that any
good would bo accomplished but wo
could havo a bin of fun. Wo had It
last year and wo bollovc in March Con
ventions on gonoral and special princi
ples. Wo aro still teeming with agree
able memories of tho ono at which Wil
liams and tho rest of us performed amid
'roat applauso from tho gallorios.
A viareh Convention this year olTors
i tempting opportunities to raise
thenna and stir it up with a stick,
lore are over 30,000 Antis in the
ito, uot including Cal Caughman
' Hen Perry. Wo aro often re
ded that "thoy always Hop to
t/her at tho last moment." It would
4 tho easiest thing in the world for
? Antis to arrange at their conven
n how tho battalions shall debouch
tho primaries and into whoso hands
should dolivor tho ballots. Wo
!d of course do all this on the dead
and adopt a system of winks,
aro in a consldorablo amount of
it about this matter. Possibly we
uiko terms with somo of tho Re
-andidatcs for Uovornor. Thirty
tad votoB would count and why
Vt wo make them bring thoir
If we caucussod properly
u'ouia certain to Und some
brother wh ould offer to divy. Then
we'd go injTlthd win, Hopping together
over 30,0(M strong at tho supremo mo
Tho all important question is who
shall call this convention? Gonzales
won't do because tho whole scheme
would be put down as a vile plot to
boost Dr. Popo?as a "lay-over to
catch meddlers," as It were. Garling
ton is incapacitated because the preg
nant hinges of his knees aro already
crooking rythmieally to what tho Free
man denominates as the "young sport
from Aiken." Williams is out of the
question because he has been hobnob
bing in Washington with the Rofawm
ei'8 and in futuro must be viewed ask
ance after tho manner of tho baleful
glances which Refawmors bestow on
Capt. Shell. Wo must "pull oil" this
business with groat caution. We must
soek to avoid t.he occasion of quurrols
among ourselves. After studying
over tho proposition, wo bolievo that
the safest course would be to request
some eminen t, pure and accommodat
ing Reformer in a leisure hour to issue
a call to tho malevolent and unscru
pulous Antis to come together in coun
:il. and in order to allay all suspicion
and guarantee the banishment of dis
?ord from the deliberations of tho con
vention, we propose the name of tho
Honorable D. H. Traxler to execute
this littlo favor for us.
It gives The ADVERTISER keen
pleasure to state that while tho glori
ous work of Reform is proceeding
among the leaders the plain people are
continually enjoying its comforts and
luxuries although there appears to be
an unfortunato hitch in tho running
goar and ono or two of the main cog
wheols refuse to turn. The numerous,
nay countless, benotits which ever flow
from Reform's hopper into the laps of
tho plain people aro evident on all
sides. One cannot look about him but
to view some happy and contented far
mer who has been rescued from "chill
ponury" by the enormous saving in
taxes which Reform has caused. There
in sight is another clever fellow who
hus beeu landed on tho crest of pros
perity by tho demolition of ring rule.
At our olbow is yet another of the
common people who remombers Re
form in his prayers because it paid his
debts. A fourth, we know him woll,
is now well olf in this world's goods
simply because "incipient corruption"
has boon eradicated from our politics.
Friend X is a capitalist now, having
been saved from bankruptcy by Re
form's masterly treatment of the Coo
saw ease. Brother Y's bank account is
in fat lix, having boon swelled by tho
subsidizing of Urn Columbia Register
and all tho Z family aro growing rich
through Reform's ofilcient and tactful
handling of tho railroads.
Our people appreciate all theso no
ble and cherished favors. Thoy fully
understand that the fretfnlncss of a fow
of tho leadors portends nothing. They
know very well that tho self sacrificing
-and bonovolont as well as brilliant
men who have already led thorn out of
tho wildernoss care not a fillip for tho
paltry ofllcos Tho gabble and fuss
and discordant cackling which not
ovon that dear good man of superior
judgmont, Unclo Ben;ucan sootho, has
nothing to do with tho olllces. Our
lender.-, are far above the paltry con
siderations of official positions. Tho
# wrath with which thoy arc stuffing
tho paporsls ovor> tho proper methods
of Reform. They aro all bont on
helping thefarmcr. They aro giving
their livestgahd talents and all that's
precious except their salaries to that
object. It therefor^ overwhelms us
with admiration for them to feol as
sured that the row now going on is
nurdly patriotic and that it is con
ntod in a mannor calculated to re
/o tho poverty of tho people and
un their pursos With dollars and
Vo congratulate tho people on the
'?plon of office holdors whoso quar
cannot but prove acceptable.
Tho good new? cornea from Wash
ington that swoot peace and gontle
unity has been restored to Refawm. It
Ib said furthermore that Governor Till?
man has climbed dowu from the fonce
and that ho and Sonator Irby are
onco inoro hand in hand merrily trip
ping along together. All this is pro
claimed as a victory for tho Irby idoa
and tho Lnurons Alliance. It is also
stated that no convontion, March or
July, Is to bo called or hold and that
tho raco for Governor 1? to bo a frco
for-all, opon to tho world, contest in
THE ADVERTISER fcols constrained
to placo an oxclamation point or two
after that last statement. We consider
ourselves in duty bound to insist thut
tho surrender of tho Reform "Convon
tion" was procisoly in line with notions
of tho Laurons Alliance. Wo dreamed
that this branch of tho Alliauco passed
some resolutions recommending a pro
gram for a Convontion to bo hold in
July and putting out indistinct signals
as to who should not bo ignored in tho
distribution. It was surely a dream,
a cruol night-mare, and wo remark
with an emotion nearly related to joy,
that dreams go by contraries.
The determination by the leaders
that tho "Reform" faction have no
preliminary convontion this year was
a g-a-l-orious victory for tho Laurens
Alliance, which we havo beam 'tell is
not in politics.
Charleston is threatened with mar*
tial law on account of her failuro to en
force the disponsary regulations. Gov
ernor Tillman, as commmander-in
chief will command, or turn over to
some heroic subordinate. The Gov
ernor's Guards at Columbia is an old
and roliablc organization. The troops
will bo disembarked at 10 mile bill and
tho investment bo complete. There Is
an admirable fishing smack llect in
Charleston and tho men, women and
childron of the old city can easily
reach Snmter and hold tho fort as did
their fathers. Tho only obstacle to
their escape is Gen. Farley's naval mi
Lady Holland visited her father,
Sydney Smith at his country seat.
Looking upon tho grand lawn she la
mented the absence of door to com
plete the pieturo. Sydney borrowed
all tho asses in the neighborhood and
tying untlors to tboir faces he turned
them on his lawn for the doleciation
of his daughter, the lady of the great
Whig House of England.
And thus our old State is tho butt of
of all the wits from Boston to Texas.
Governor Tillman has a level head.
Trouble threatened in Charleston
about his whiskey arrangements and
tho peace in danger he summons the
Washington Light Infantry to his
standard. That is the oldest company
in the State, carrying the Eutaw Hag?

Gladiator Corbett had a monster re

Washington city was overllowing

America, thrashed Charlie Mitchell,

would prevent the dispute but "they got

Cols. Mitchel and Corbett would
hardly be interfered with in this State.
The Governor is too much occupied in
settling other scrapping matches;?not
glove contests either.
It be; .b to appear that tho G over no r
