TRIBUTE OF RESPECT.
"Blessed are they that rest with
their living Lord in the evergreen
fields beyond where sweet be their
rest until the Resurrection morn
when they will come forth arrayed
in a blessed immortality."
It becomes my ead duty to speak
of one who departed this life on
Sunday morning, the 22d day of
March, 1896. 1 refer to Mrs. Mary
Emma Dagnall, wife of J. T. Dag
nail. Sho wuh one of earth's noble
women. No purer, better spirit
has it ever been my good fortune
to be associated with, and I lov
ingly lay this tribute upon her new
made grave with the hope that it
may be an incentive to others to
live as she lived, that they may die
as she died. For about eighteen
hours she was a great sufferer from
that terrible dit ase, hemorage of
the lungs. Duriug the few hours
she romained on earth she was sus
tained by tho lovlug hands of her
Heavenly Father, upon whom by
faith she rested. So patient and
restful was she that not a murmur
escaped her, not a sign of restive
ness, not a doubt as to furthor
blessedness ever troubled her. She
was born near Goodgion's Factory,
July 25,1840. Sho professed faith in
Christ and united at Raburn Greek
church and was a consistent mem
ber. She was an affectionate wife
and|mother. She was a useful mem
ber of the church and always ready
to help in any Christian work. Sho
leaves behind a heart-stricken hus
band and three step childron, one
brother and sister to mourn her
While the hearts of remaining
ones were saddened because of her
going none could grieve but for her
absence from home, as all knew it
is to her the rest which remains for
the people of God. She was burled
in the cemetery at Pisgah M. ?.
Church, Greenville County, the 28d
tilt., in the presenco of a great
throng of people who paid their
last tribute to ono they know and
loved so well.

Welborn was present and delivered
one of the most praotioal ad*
dresses on the principles, aims and
purposes of the order ever listened

was enthusiastic and a large crowd
was in attendance. The most im
portant question of the times?the
financial issue?is the result of Al
liance teachings, and the three
patriotic souls?three old farmers

alliance question ought to have
monuments ereot<<d to their mem
ory as imposing as that to Wash
While tho Alliance throughout

merly thoro is no disputing tho
fact that its principles aro in
stillod deeper than over in the
minds of the people and they do
not intend to be "blown off tho
track" by designing politicians
and place-seekers. The following

pose and passed almost unani
WIIEREAS, certain interested and
self-seeking politicians, are attempting
to blind the people as to the great,
burning and paaamount issue of the
nationul cninpaign now pending, towit:
the question of finance, by magnifying
the name of Democracy, while they up-1
pear to ignore its true principles and
to be oblivious to the vital interests of
the people involved, it is becoming in
this County Alliance, which claims to
represent in part, the producing classes
in the contest now waging, to give a
public expression of opinion. Be it
Rksqlvbd. 1st. That we value the
name of JefTersoninn Democracy for
its grand achievements in the past and
its unwavering loyalty to the true in
terests of the people under the leader-'
ship of Jefferson, Jackson and Calhoun,
while we spurn, loathe and abhor the
name of a spurious democracy domi
nated by gold-bugs, who, instigated by
selfish greed, would enslave the people
and confiscate their property.
2nd. That the National Democratic
party is soon to undergo the crucial
test, by the attitude it shall assume on
the question of financial reform at its
meeting in Chicago to lay down a
platform and to nominate a Democratic
candidate lor President of these United
States, and should it, by its action,
prove false and an enemy of the inter
ests of the great producing classes, we,
as Jeffersonian democrats are hence
forth absolved from all obligation to
give it further support.
8d. That it is the duty of every
white democrat of South Carolina to
go to the electjon and select delegates
to the May Convention at Columbia,
who are true to our alliance demands
and "the principles we have been con
tending for." The State Convention
should send a trusted delegation to
Chicago with a platform of principles
clearly laid down as a basis for their
action. And on the one overpowering
and burning question of finance, we
should demand of the National Demo
cratic Party a clear and unmistakable
utterance for free silver at 16 to l, the
issue of all paper money by the govern
ment in sufficient volume, and a sys-.
tem of banking which will provide
against the concentration and conges
tion of money in the large cities to the
detriment and ruin of the country.
4th, That to ensure victory all true
friends of free-silver should subordi
nate al other issues to this great one,
and vote for no candidate for President
who is not a honn-fldc and uncondi
tional friend of free-silver, without re
gard to party name or affiliation.
