Bearding the Lion.
Mr. Bryan is to go all tho way from
Nebraska to New York where at Madi
son Square Garden on the 12th of Aug
ust the committee on notification will
ofllolally inform him of his nomination.
This is right under the nese of Tam
many and but a stone's throw from
Wall Street. Bryan and the cctomlttoe
aro to take the big trip that tho
speeches may be caught up without
delay by Hill, Whitney and tho news
paper men and quickly disseminated
to the four quarters of tho globe. Be
sides as the West is all right, the point
is to impress the East and the words
spoken might lose some of thoir forco
on tho hardened gold bugs by long dis
tance transmission. Probably tho
scheme is well conceived, and tho' gen
tlemen of the committee will nodoubt
enjoy tholr visit to the boor gardens of
tho great city and tako in the summer
musle. Watering places and sea side
resorts are conveniently located and
these lands can be spread out for pro
per texts in the campaign just now
about to bo sprung upon tho soothing
country. It is Jones of Arkansas now
and not Jones of Blnghampton.
Above tho Law.
Governor Evans doolinod at Florcnco
to submit to arrost for a broach of the
peace, taking tho ground that the Gov
ernor was abovo and beyond the law.?
It may bo so, but it is strango if it is
so. Nodoubt, ho is head of the molish
and might havo put any of tho local
State trooops under arms. Long ago
an ignorant party wont into a lawyers
Oillco in this city and being a long
winded fellow, tho Attornoy, an irrita
ble gontlsmau and easily bored, in
timated to tho party that ho had bottor
go, that he tho Attornoy was getting
tired. The visitor not taking tho hint
tho lawyer frazzled out a convoniont
walking cane on tho cranium of his
visitor. The injured person ropalrod
to tho noarost Justice but that ofllcer
turned him off, saying that there was
no law for a lawyer, and that that im
portant personage, could beat whom ho
"Undo Georgo" Tillman was the
orator on tho occasion of laying tho
cornor stone of a Court Houso for
Saluda county a few days ago. He
gibes at Charleston that that small
town has made It impractical to have a
Saluda Court House for these hundred
years last past. Ho forgets that Cal
houn sets up tho constitution of South
Carolina of '08 as a model government.
Ho forgets also that the Parish sys
tom made now countios impracticable
until 1805 and that that system was
not a Charleston feature but apper
tained to Colloton, Orangeburg and tho
entire lower bolt of counties and that u
majority of the upper counties sus
tained that system. It was abolished
by the carpet baggers and negroes in
1868, who gave us Oconeo and wo be
lieve Alken. "Uncle George" must bo
growing old and fooling tho weight of
years. Charleston is not legitimnto
game for him. it is tho rule of smaller
Nimrod8 to make a target of Charles
ton. Thoy should bo left their vocation
?argumont?moat and drink. Tho
speech of Mr. Tillman wo think his
torically untrue. While Charleston
may have uphold tho compromises of
tho constitution under which we lived
until 1805, tho majority of the upper
counties of tho Stato was with hor.?
The slavery interest of the State sup
ported tho Parish system from moun
tain to sea and when slavery wont
Oconeo, Aikon and Hampton came,
and other counties followed and will
continue to follow. Tho old constitu
tion survived upon slavery. Slavery
dominated tho State; there was op
pression of no section, but tho most
liberal and perfectly administered gov
ernment that tho earth has scon. Wo
aro not defending Charleston, but the
truth and tho truth of history.
Governor Evans urges that tho Demo
cratic platform is tho Alliance plat
form. Well, probably it is. But ah
tho Alliance platform now has of the
Alliance demands is free silver and
free silver is tho Georgo Tillman, Stew
art, and Teller platform. All will re
member what a timo Bon Tillman hud
at Spartanburg with Terrol insisting
upon his wild demands about Sub
Treasury and tho like, it is Tillman
who lias beaten the Alliance domands.
If ho had stood exclusively on free sil
ver ho vould havo been in tho shoes of
fry an, But ho dallied with populism

much of the gamo cock is in those old
fellows but how much brains and skill
thoy have for State-craft and how|many
millions of voters are baok of them.
We kops those "lying newspapers"
are not mistaken in saying that Bryan
Is sweeping the country and carrying
every thing before him. We aro going
to vote "straight" for our W. J. Bryan
and we want him to win and we want
it badly. We have been in the minority
so long that we envy (a wicked weak

the rule of the majority. Yes, for

Tillman having writton a letter to
Duncan ondorsing Evans with a full
letter of credit tolls Duncan that he is
hands oil for tho future. Duncan should
call to mind an old joke. Pctor the
Great asked one of his courtiers if ho
over told a lie?
Yes, Sire, 1 toll a lie in tho morning,
at noon it has had its effect, in the
ovening I correct It. Tho ovoning of
the campaign is right on tho heels of
Ben Tillman cooked his goose whon
he declared for bolting. Tom Watsons
are mighty scarce in old South Carliny.

General Southern Agent, -
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 he indulges. The daughter
asks lather, or guardian, to buy an Instrument to enable her to
cultivate that beautiful talent, music. Does any sane man not
rcli/c 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
