-t has boon a winning "cry'' in

' Wo havo certainly the
oform that has divided our house; Hot
..emoorats by tho oars; divided father
and son; arrayed brother against
brother; neighbor against neighbor;
the reform that has divided man and
wife; split the solid South. It has
boon a reform that has created mauy
new offices; that has not reduced taxes;
that has not advanced the prices of
^ agricultural products; that has not in
oreaMod the common school fund; that
has not bene?ttod the poor; that has
multiplied colloges or rather the high
schools which onuro Bolely to tho bene
fit of tfio rich, and if there be no rich,
then to tho benefit of the quasi rieh or
comparatively rioh in this State. Tho
' common schools in tho State, estab
lished for the benefit of all, rioh and
poor, have been ignored. The effort
tp reform the higher educational sys
^tom Is a failure; the State college sys
tom is utterly violous; the resources of
the State aro frittered and scattered;
thore is a poor common school system;
there is no good university in the
State and there cannot be, which scat
ters two hundred thousand dollars of
the tax payers' money annually among
a half-dozen schools, instead of concen
trating the support upon;', groat uni
versity, with ample resources, whore
men and womon could have tho appli
ances for high and efficient education.
But we forbear; wo cannot cite tho ln
<tances whoro our reform has failed to
dvance tho State. We can only urge
10 point that all is confusion ?. worse
nfounded throughout our land since
Unan set men's tnjbjds free and sot
n to thinking/ forthe fftst time in
* hu*ftirod ''years; sinco Tillman
?ue throngs of our citizens that
they never saw a Governor before;
that thoir fathers wore strangers to
the faces and voices of such men, and
plain, plow-boy men too, as Georgo
. McUufno, Jarnos II. Adams, John H.
Means, B. F. Perry and Jumes L. Orr.
But we aro wandering; wo havo said
that the spirit of reform is infectious.
.Tho "cry" comes from another quar
ter; tho demand now is for now eleotlon
laws and methods; tho purification of
tho ballot-box; to put tho axo to the
root of tho troo and hew to tho lino; to
make it impossible, to defeat an hon
est oleetion and lot the will of tho
electors bo ascertained and prevail.
Wo arc for this sort of reform; wo aro
for this sort of honest handling of tho
nxo, lot the chips fall as they may.
Tho near futuro will determine
whother this Idea has support, or
whether tho ballot-box staffer, the
miserable, manipulator, tho scrambler
for spoils and filthy lucre is to stretch
out to tho clo80 of tho contury and tho
crack of doom. We Instance again tho
case of the Irishman, who ?Was told by
? his attorney that tho judgo and jury
wero honest and ho would get a fair
trial, but whose case domanded crooked
dealing and that It was an acquittal
that he wanted.
Ca?sar cried for help "as a sick girl."
Thore is a palofacod, bloodless, sickly
cry of lamentation, going up over tho
land about getting togothor; the poople
being divided upon questions of great
moment, a wall of distress goes out
r?*c?c a multltudo of voices. Wo uro a
- stalwart race and in tho very midst of
a stirring, bitterly contesting and com
peting civilization. Tho friction of
mind, the clash of interests and tho
orush and push of tho mob of mon in
the social scramble Is fiercer, than at
any time in the history of tho raeo.
There aro no longer sections and
scarcely distinct peoples. Tho nolld
South has become history; a solid
South Carolina is a tulo tliat is told.
There is nothing now in tho situution;
it ought to terrify nobody; tho Stato
vras fiercely divldod in tho early years
of tho contury; thoy wore madly di
vided in 1832. Besides, we come of
quarrelsome ancostors; they devoured
each other in England, Scotland and
Ireland for a thousand years; thoy
never had a contury without bittor
and bloody contention. Tho causo of
human liberty and tho rights of man
-r Ssdvancod and grew stronger out of
every clash and content ion. But this
Is an ago of boasted oducation and civ
ilization; it ought to bo ail ago of rea
son's way. Thoro should be loss pas
sion; loss bad blood, loss greed. _ ,
^ ~"BYftck, of Augustn, blundorod badly
and made a bad break when he agreed
to resign his scat in tho noxt Congross.
Ho bad no right to pr^sumo fraud,
however, violont tho ovidonce. Hois
not to sit in judgment in his own case.
Thoso current frauds all over the
oountrtrpsimply prove a rotten public
sentiment. If a hog Is stolon in a com
munity and the caso is compromised
not pros&cutcd and tho community

ovidonce is no!, bunted up, and the

of the country, it is the host evidence
that honcstv is not wanted.
The Governor is required by tho
Constitution to adviso tho legislature
?b to needed legislation. Gov. Tillman
is prolific of reforms and like the cot

Is in condition to reflect: "Let itcomo;"
"I. have supped full of horrors;"
"Nothing can touch mo furthor."
Higher taxation, multiplication of of
