LAUKENS, S. C. July 14, 1800.
The Star of Empire*
The Convention finished its work on
Saturday after tho most remarka
ble and noteworthy characteristics in
the history of the great Democratic
party. Bryan, a young Clay of the
West, Nebraska, trans?Mississippi, is
named by the silverites for our stand
"Then charge where you see this white
Amid the ranks of war,
And be your oriilamo this day,
The standard of Navarre."
So wall, of Malno, is named without
much ado, for second placo.
Bryan is a young man of about thirty
six years, just old enough to qualify If
elected, ha* served in tho Lower House,
and made a groat reputation as an
orator and is regarded, outsido his sil
ver fetich a man of fine judgmont and
statesmanlike qualities. He came, ho
saw, he overcame, ho went to tho ros
trum, opened his mouth, threw an at
titude and tho great convention was
his, swept as a prairie fire careers over
the mighty plain.
His craze Is silver?he believes 10
ounces of silver with the govornmont's
superscription Is as good as un ounco
of gold, and he bollovos it because ho
wants it so and his terrible earnestness,
was tho electric power that crushed
all opposition. He believes in silver,
and in his speech, gave a crushing
blow to Tillman's populistlo idea of
greenbacks, fiat money, and with a few
words, sounding quick death to Till
man's attack on Clcavoland. For Till
man, by the way, tho eighteen votes of
this State wero transferred from Co
lumbia and recorded, Tillman not
voting or voting for some other candi
date ob tho first throw of tho ballots.?
For Tillman, however, it must bo
stated, that ho was in all tho councils of
the leaders, his power rocognizod, and
but for his popullstlc and extreme
views, he would havo had Influence in
tho great body. He failed in his
speech and comes homo a sadder if not
a wiser man.
New York did not vote in tho ballot
ing, unwilling to stand committed to
the silvor craze. Can the kite fly??
Can the ticket win?
Here is the situation: with Connecti
cut gone to tho Republican New Eng
land column, Now York, Now Jersey,
and "My Maryland" added to tho great
Republican phalanx?it was useless to
look to tho East for a candidate The
little States beyond tho Mississippi,
with few electoral votes all mustered
and in Uno with the South for silver wo
must still necessarily looso. Bryan is
oxpee'Le:. '.o hold tiu trans-Mlsslssippl
States for silver and for t'n. groat val
ley States, Ohio, Illinois, India...-. Wis
consin Iowa, Michican. Some of those
States must be added to the West and
South to assure victory in November.
What New York and the other East
ern democracy will do, wo must wait
to know. For the present The Ad
vertiser follows tho democratic flag
now flying and will fight it out as mat
ters now stand?reserving always the
right to onroll under a purer standard,
should Hill and the East unfurl it?
that is to say?offer something bettor
There should bo no drawing tho lines
in the present campaign upon dead and
buried issues. Lot us havo peaco. Let
Laurens be well roprescntod In tho C.
H. offices by efficient, courteous, faith
ful servants of tho people. The samo as
to our representatives In tho General
Assembly. We want our county repre
sented by a strong delegation. Thoro
is no reason why this should not be the
case. Thoro is not an Issue before us
but competency?and wo want ability
to devise, shape and guide legislation
and public policy. Again, there Is no
issue boforo us that should divert us
and well wishers of tho State from
casting our votes for tho most compet
There is now no question of reform;
no legislation proposed upon which
factions can arise. Nothing could be
more absurd and ridiculous than to
now make a tost upon Bon Tillman
or Senator Irby in dotermlng tho qual
ifications of candidates for Congress,
Solicitor, State Senate, House Repre
sentatives, county coronor or Treasu
rer. Thoro is no possible sense In u
factional fight. Only extremists will
search nit tho dead linos of two yoars
ago. They can only divert tho minds
of voters from the truo issuo?the ques
tion of competency, ability, fitness.?
There should bo a unanimous pulling
together as democrats looking In Na
tional matters to tho success of true
dfnnooraoy?in gtate and county to an
Economical, honest administration of
affairs. Come," now, and let us dwell
togotbor In harmony, in State and
county affairs. Certainly in national
affairs if wo can with honor.
Pierce M. B. Young.
The South loses a noble son In tho
death of Gon. Pierce M. B. Young, who
died on the sixth instant in New York.
He had just roturned from Guatemala,
where he was Minister, on sick loave.
Oen. Young was born In Spartanburg
county,* removed with his father to
Georgia, whero he was roared, was
educated at West Point, entered the
Confederate army as a Lieutenant and
rose through all the grados to be Ma j.
Gen. of Cavalry. Since tho war he has
been member of Congress, served
abroad in the consular aervico and died
a foreign minister. He was a most ac
complished and true - gentleman and
typical Southerner. Ho was distingu
ished in the army for chivalric bearing,
personal courage and dash. Ho was of
that splendid school of ohevaliors, pe
culiar to tho Southern armies, and will

represents the State on the National

Judge Earle and Gov. Evans are
criticised for bel?g candidates while
holding office. Gov. Evans suggests
that Earle should resign and by the
same token Evans should resign. But
these gentlemen are hot candidates:"
they are only soliciting votes at a
democratic primary to make them
candidates. Those who are successful
at the primaries can bocomo candi

There is talk of calling off tho State

MEN, who hold the purse strings, often deprive women of articles
of inestimable value. The wife pleads with her husband for
a Piano or an Organ, which is tenfold more essential than the
cigar and other luxuries in which lie indulges. The daughter
asks father, or guardian, to buy an Instrument to enable her to
cultivate that beautiful talent, music. Docs any sane man not
rclizc this a reasonable right to plead and ask for? Reflect a minute!
Think of the means expended for instruction, and the many tedious
hours employed in practice by wife and daughter, and of their glowing
anticipations subsequently to be realized.
Now, father, husband, or guardian, are you going to blast all
these bright anticipations by denying them of this merited right?simply
the gift of a Piano or an Organ?
Give your wives and daughters their merited rights in the home,
which is "Woman's Kingdom," then she will cease to clamor for politi
cal suffrage. Don't plead inability when such liberal terms and prices
