pow-wow, at Union lias come and gone.
It was not largely attractive, tho at

the sovereign voters of Union were not
so anxious for light after all. The

From the Olympian Hight? of l'aris
Mountain, a suburb of Greenville,
Senator Mcl.aurin thunders his answer
after the style of tho true Dhilippic, to
the State Executive Committee. They
by resolution had suggested that he
should resign his seat in the Senate,
in common decency, as a misrepresen
tativc of the democracy of the State.
Nobody expected that the Senator
would accept the suggestion and his
answer has been awaited with soino
anxiety. The marrow of the argument
to sustain his determination to "bold
fast" to that which he has and which
ho regards as "good"?is lirst the claim
that, the committee majority were
mere tools of Tillman, obedient to his
whip-lash. And second, a comparison
of McLaurin's record with that of Till
man, including a vicious assault upon
Tillman. But the bad logic lies iD the
patent fact that the conviction of Till
man does not acquit McLaunn. Paint
ing Tillman as black as Urebusdoes not
make MoLaurln white as snow. All
this is clear from a reading of the pa
per from Olympian bights. There is no
use to emphasize. MoLaurln, how
ever, makes one good point in his paper
and there is a smack of Democracy in
it: ''It seems to me the Democratic
massos of South Carolina are compe

We print this week the letter of Mc
Laurin in lull, answering the Kxecu

deed, there seems to be abroad in tho
land an idea that tin1 people need po
