it as too utterly utter radical for his
followers in tho utterly uttor down
East. All tho same, in South Carolina
.thoy pass for domocrats; God save tho
mark. There has novcr in tho history
of manhood been such a fraud. "Am
I a dog that I should do this thing."
How many democrats of tho true faith,

last four years, utterly ignored and

The popular party in this State has
for four years denounced tho demo
cratic party and its lcadors. Populism,
ugrarianism, socialism and every
othor ism foreign to democracy enters
into tho platform of tho so-called de
mocracy. Thoro is a rospcctablo mi
nority of puro democrats in this State,
who do not bow down nor proposo to
bow down and worship these strange
gods. What aro thoy to do? Thoy
havo boon told by tho ruling majority

Tillman is a simon puro Democrat and

old procldont of tho members rebelling
and tho hands rofusing to supply food

recorded of the ontiro body robolling

The conservatives aro tho authors,
makers and finishors of the olection

tho conservatives aro robbed of any

or Stato affairs. And with reluctance

The Charleston News and Courier
publishes on tho 5th tnst an exhaustive
Review of the Good Cities' -work for
tho industrial year closing with tho
31st of August, 1801. It includes also
a roview of tho industrial conditions
of the ontiro State, from mountains to
sea. from soa to tho Savannah. It
shows tho good old city with a harbor
of 23 foot of water, a yoar of hopeful
conditions amid the depression which
in all lands has characterized tho last
two years. Tho conditions aro hope

view is a work of splendid enterprise,
worthy of tho News u*-d Courier. It

Tho conservatives who have boon as
dumb as oystors for two years aro told
that they aro persecuted becauso they

thorn out of tho fold, thoy aro not dem
ocrats. So tho wolf complained that
Jho lamb muddied tho water and the

manhood and form a political associ
ation of their own.
Undor tho popular doetrino of evolu

small animal productions have resulted
in a small Stato like South Carolina.
Thus wo havo diminutive intellectual
specimens developed. Lilliputian poli
ticians seem to think ihat Gon. Butler
prefers his own interest to that of true
democracy. Gen. Butler answers tho
picayune insinuation and says that his
interest must not bo regarded when
tho interest of true democracy is in
volved. Gon. Butler is a product of
the environment of the "wide, wide
