LAURENS, 8. C, Mar. 17, 1896.
He Don't taten On.
.A Mr. Relddwelling In Spartanburg
County, reads the speeoh of Senator
Tillman in the Senate from afar off.?
In his innocence he addressos a letter
to the Senator at his groat distance but
is particular to instance to the Senator
at long range that "my religion and
patriotism" are tho instigators of my
convictions in the important and vital
suggestions which I am now inillotlng
upon you. Mr. Reld then proceeds to
assure the Senator that Jefferson, Cal
houn and Jackson, aro the Democrats
he aspires to emulate whilo ho has no
stomach for such democracy as Car
lisle, Cleveland and tholr supporters
?re giving the country. Thereupon he
declares the necessity of a froe silver
party and a union with tho Populists,
with the certain assurance of Tillman
being the represents^] vo of the whole
"lay out," and climbing to the Preel
moy incontinently with Reld as a
good second and on the ground floor.?
Tillman promptly answers our dis
tinguished friend of Spartanburg, with
he happy suggestion that ho Is an
lot?eupheulstlcally said ? that the
tactics is to stick to tho Democratic
rotten machine and when it appears
that they oannot control it?to loave It
to drift while thoy jump aboard tho
popullstlo oraft, with the confident
hope of landing. What Reid will do
nobody can toll. Tillman will not be
lead by him, that is cloar. Until the
Democrats will not obey his orders he
will not desert thorn?when they won't
he will. A Legislature that looks both
ways (as suggested by Bob Hemphill)
has now such countonanco as thoy can
well afford to live and die in. This Mr,
Rold has not been hoard of before In
the political arena; ho Is therefore to
be oxen -od for his inexperience and
innocence. Senator Tillman's plan is
so much, doubly, wiser. Fight a hard
fight at Chicago and if you are beaten,
pull up stakes; desert your comrades;
carry off yonr arms; join another camp
'??>?under another banner, and war upon
your late comrades in arms till they be
dead, dead, dead. Thore are more ways
Of killing a dog than hanging him and
if this Mr. Reld lives long enough he
may find It out. Wo must accord Mr.
Reid the justice, howovor, to suggest,
that, very like he has been listening to
Senator Tillman's talk for tho last few
years, innocently supposing that the
Senator meant what he has been so
* ? *
Whenever tho Legislature has mot
within the last four years it has passed
a new dispensary law. The United
States Courts declare promptly some
defect in i and as it were drivo a six
horse tri?, a straight through its exten
sive proportions. Then a new enact
ment, then a new decision. The. Leg
islature just adjournod applied a
mighty patch to the dispensary gar
ment and after awhile tho little bill
brought over from Athens will fail
to recognize its parentage. The polite
sparring between the Court and tho
General Assembly will probably bo
perpetual. 'Two polite sports on ono
Pfceasion. in London town indulged in
^temperate conviviality until the
FSmall hours. Cholly thinking Johnio
' unable to tako good care of himself es
corted Johnio to his quarters; Johnle
not to be outdone In politeness returned
with Cholly to his lodging to soo him
sound and safe; but Cholly boing a po
lite and kind friend accompanied
Johnle to his well known suite of rooms
,! a* J the morning finally overtook tho
fay boys doing tho polite. By this
ime they were duly sober.
Ex-Radical Judge Townsend was tho
late leader of tho House of Representa

held the luorative position of Assistant

The question of whet to do with our
ex-Presidents is being revived. Zest
is given to the question as it is now of
moment what to do with Ben Tlllman
after he has served his two terms.
Cincinatus, after his dictatorship of
Rome retired to his farm consisting of
We do not seo any probability of get
ting rid of Tlllman as a so-called Dem
ocrat. The national Democratic con
vention will declare for free silver, and
that will put him in a hole. He cannot
amount to much In tho Democratic
party of the country, but he might be
a leader lu a strictly silver party. He
wants to bolt, but he will be given no
excuse for it. Wo shall have to stand
T'llman with free silver Democracy
rather than gold standard Democracy
without Tlllman. Thus aro the bitter
and sweets of politics intermingled.?
We do not concur in tho result, us
ing the stereotyped language of our
delicious Supreme Court, striking out
the "not." Tho East, and suftloient of
the middle States will strangle a freo
silver plank. But there may bo a
straddle as usual, an accommo
dating platform. At any rate If
they so word it as to hypnotiso Tlllman
and ho remains in the Democratic or
ganization, he will be a small potato,
and there will bo no moro hero svor<

cry from of old and his worshippers
will apoth cosi/.o another Peter Hermit.

State Chairman J. L. M. Irby calls
the State Committee to moot at Colum
bia on the 7th of April, looking to tho
ro-organizatlon of tho Democratic
party and sending a State delegation
to the Chicago convontion. The Chair
man briefly states the necessity, of tho
rulo of the country by tho domocratio
party, the urgency of unity and har
mony, and sharply hints tho ,danger to
result from threats of a "determina
tion to disorganize if wo cannot havo
our particular vlows carried out." Tho
paper is brief; but tho case is clearly
put. Thero is no pitchfork, but a
glimpse of the rapier about the pen of
Tlllman and Irby are vis-a-vis at this
juncture. As matters now stand Tlll
man may want to carry two flags 4,0

the delegation be pledged to stand by
tho action of tho National Convontion,
