Is your doxy und ortho
loxy. There is llttlo doubt
position since the days of
(tier. Political treachery is
.ug Bom? .follow you yoursolf
support and from whoso elovn
?ud success you yourself hope
oi^mo time recently the farmers in
Texas formulated an alliance and pro
mulgated to tho country certain de
mands?what is called tho sub-troasury,
or something bottor; control of the
tolograph Hues; control of transporta
tion; ownership of railroads. Domo
erats hold that thoso demands wcro
Impracticable Democrats" held that
the financial and tar I IT laws were op
pressive to tho people and ruinous to
tho South. Certain men calling them
selves roformors joined tho Alliance
and coquottod with tho "demands'' of
that ordor, blowing hot and blowing
j cold; at tho samo time crying from the
hou8otops and from tho streets of
- Ascalon -'Reform! Reform! Reform!''
. Those loading Reformers liuvo do
jortetfth?* "demands"; havo left the
Alliance high and dry, and arc now on
tho Democratic platform of alow tariff,
abolition of tho tax on Stato Rank
tssuos, antl-Clovoland and free silver
forovor. Tho old Democrat, however,
.who has adhered to his platform and
his principles Is denounced as a traitor
and tho follow who went wild for the
demands and has deserted them, sayin<
thoy aro Impractlblc Is still tho little
god. All this Is curious and Inexpli
cable, but't is tho fact. Now there is
^Bon Tlllman, who to say tho truth was
largoly instrumental in building an
agricultural collogo'at a vast expense,
which while it will prove a cheap col
lego is a rich man's college, as all col
logos arejDP ft?h Hawni' Nobody lias
' '""oVWatWfown how ho stood on tho All 1
anco demands; if anything lie was
against them. Ho is a groat planter
instead of boing a farmer and was
oasily, softly and sweetly seduced by
tho seductive blandishments ot a kid
giovo gontloman to dirty his pure
horny hands with railroad froo passes
All his sympathies aro with the rieh
?use ho Is rich himself. Human
nature is tho samo all over tho world
and tho rich man does not join the
working man's union and light to the
death for higher wages. The proprie
tor and tho worker do not work to
gether. Rut all thoso who stand
against Tlllmun are traitors while
Tlllman has abandoned the Alliance
principles and now stands witli Brat
ton, Butler and the rest. South Caro
linians ought to have gumption enough
not to bo foolod; but more especially
tho men of Laurens who in intelli
gence and Independence are above the
average of the rest of mankind. They
should not bo coat-tail swingers. Till
man now says that all tho Alliance de
mauds oxcept thoso held by the Dom
ooratle party uro impracticable. All
thoso who held to tho Alliance de
mands havo gono over to the populists.
If Tlllman bellovos In the Alliance de
mands, then ho wants tho courage of
his convictions and poses as a Demo
crat to steal into powor to support pop
ulistlc doctrines hereafter. He now
stands on tho anti-Cleveland platform
wlTu~G8ir. UufTSTr, tho difference being
that Butler belioves Cleveland an hon?
ost man, while Tlllman denounces him
as tho partner of thieves and tho re
coivor of stolon goods. It Is saying a
good deal, but there are some who will
agree with the writer: M. C. Butler,
of all mon of tho South has stood in the
Senate with Vest, Morgan, Vance and
pjbhor Sonators as the friend of tho
people. Let any show tho. contrary
Who can. Bosides, Butler, when the
truth of history comes to be written,
will bo sot down as tho hero of the war,
so far as South Carolina contributed to
Hampton, a simon pure farmer, who
belonged to a vv \ of farmers, was
hunted down in his privacy in l!S7<>, to
fight tho strongest powor on earth?
tho xuost desperate of forlorn hopes.
?Ho was thon on his poor sand hill farm
In Richland. Ho was tho man to win
by bravery, wisdom and coolness.
Hampton was the man who redeemed
Iis after wo won. Hamilton was tho
-man who saw Hayes and told him to
IiIh teeth that he ^ad boon olected
Govornor and 1? e would.have tho
ofllco. Hampton was tho man Hayes
and Grant respected and woro afraid
A card to be found in all the papers
of South Carolina published about the
first of July, 187? Is signed by M. C.
Butlor domanding of Hamilton that
ho should load tho people of South Car
olina in a struggle for indopondenco.
Butlor and Gary with him led the
hosts of Edgofiold and sot the pace
Edgofiold gavo Hampton a big major
ity. Laurons (with u majority of 1500
negroes) led by Dials Township with
great gallantry ai. a good deal of
"dovll-may-earo," gavo 1200 majority.
Tho writer of this article is not at
tacking tho honosty of Ben Tlllman or
any othor Tlllman nor tho principles
of tho Alliance or any othor'sotof mon;
but tho writer boliovos thoro is a brave
pooplo who will never forgot the fi
delity of mon liko Butlor and some
day will lament that they havo taught
their sons and thoir daughters to for
got them. Laurens has a thousand
men, fathers, sons and brothors doad
on the flold of honor from 1801 to 180
?you would not bo deprived of tho
weight of a hair of tho glory attaching
to your name by reason of thoir cour
age; thoy woro to tho front always and
there was ono maimed horo always
abreast of thorn and his name was M.
Whon Bon Tlllman and M. C. Butlor
como to Laurens on tho 28th of July,
giving to Ben Tlllman all tho rospect
and rovorenco to which In your viow
-his devotion to tho welfare of tho
State ontltles him, don't forget that a
<tn nmung men is on your soil M. C.
Dr. Popo, candidate for Govornor
protests against tiio forestalling 'con
vention by reformers and demands
that all Domocrata should have a show
ing. Tho chickons will come home to
roost. Cheating netfer thrives.
This is tho way it works: There arc
eighty thousand Democrats in the
Stato; thirty thousand or those oppose
Tillman; thoy uro excluded from tho
voting and this loaves fifty thousand to
choose a candidate for Govornor: thirty
thousand of these, being a majority of
reformers, will chooso a candidate.
This thirty is a minority of tho whole
and thus the minority govorns the ma
jority, thirty thousand naming the
candidate of the eighty. Dr. Pope is
not tho only man who will feel the
gall", but boing a stout and stalwart re
former, it goes hard that ho should
havo to dlo ignominiously in tho la^t
ditch. Tho conservatives in tho mcan
whilo who aro excluded, uro laughing
and saying, "We told you so." Tho ho
eallol Democratic party is handled by
a half dozen rings. Wo, us and com
pany have no right to kick or rights In
tho premises, but it docs seem hard
thav such as tho friends of Pope, Tin
dal and BUorboshould bo incontinently
butchered in the house of their friends.
But one can always throw himself upon
hl8 philosophy and reflect that "sich"
is life. Sooner or later every man will
lind that honesty is the best policy,
fair play a jewel, and moreover if he
lives long and sleeps with ono eye open
ho may find out where he is at.
The North American Review of dune
contains a reply by Governor Tillman
to tho opinion of tho State Supremo
Court declaring the Dispensary Acts
unconstitutional. Side by sido with it
is published an article by Mayor W.
Dargan, of Darlington, mostly histori
cal, and denying Governor Tillman's
statements of fact almost in toto and
seriatim. This Kiview is read in every
civilized land and tho readers mutt
wonder what manner of pe >plo we are.
