'111 OPENING OF THE CAMPAIGN.
Polities ! Polirics ! Polities in busi
nies'! Politics in society ! Politics
everywhere and in everything. This
s("enls to be decidedly a year of politics.
l.verybody is a politician, some more
and sonic less. I have been fer some
time of the opinion that I was not
Much of a politician, and I am now
fully convinced that I am no- politician.
The "campaign of education" that
we are to have in this State this year
o pened at (reenviile on Tuesday.
Being anxious to see the ball open I
went to Ureenville on -Monday. On
board the train going up were (en. J.
If. Earle, Gen. Jno. Bratton, candi
dates for (overnor. Conptroller-Gen
eral Verner, candidate for re-election,
Col. J. Q. Marshall, candidate for re
election as Secretary of tate, Messrs.
Loudette and (; ibbes of the Charleston
World, and Hon. J. M. Johnstone
from Newberry. Gen. Y. J. Pope, of
Newberry, went up on the early train.
We arrived in Greenville in the after
noon and took quarters at the Mansion
House. The place was full of politicians.
All the candidates for State offices were
there, and among them were Capt.
Shell and Col. Irby, of Laurens. Capt.
Tillman had headquarters there too,
but did not mingle much with the
crowd. He remained in his room and
received his friends. Numbers called
on him during the evening, and early
next morning he was kept busy receiv
ing his friends.
Arrangements were made during the
night for Col. Gary, of Abbeville, to
announce himself as a candidate for
Lieutenant Governor, so as to leave the
field clear on the Tillman ticket to Gen.
Pope for Attorney General.
All the candidates were looking well
and seemed in good spirits, just as if
they felt like their friends were going
to elect them. ;It is good to feel so, and
in this way to keep up courage.
Not being a politician, I was not able
to get into the councils of any faction,
or any candidate, and neither did I
care to get into their secrets. I merely
went up to observe and look on. I had
not been to a genuine campaign meet
ing that had any interest or excitement
connected with it since the lively days
of 1S7;, when as a 1 year old boy, I
wore a red shirt, rode and whooped for
Hampton. I observed one thing at
G;reeniville, and that was that Capt.
Tilhman and his friends seemed to get
together and to stay together, and they
did not mingle much with the other
On Tuesday morning about 11 o'clock
carriages drove tip to the Mansion
House and the candidates were driven
to the city Park, where the speaking
was to take place. ('apt. Tillman, Gen.
Pope, Col. Gary, an'd Col. Farley, (I
believe all the candidates have titles,)
occupied the first carriage. Whether
this was meant as the position of honor
or not, I am unable to say. I observed
that this carriage was adorned with
sheaves of wheat and oats and other
emblems of agriculture, I supposed to
indicate that it contained the farmers'
candidates, yet the reader will observe
that there were one farmer and three
lawyers in this carriage. The other
candidates were divided up among the
other carriages, it seemed without any
Arriving at the grounds' I wvas disap
pointed at the numbher of people there.
I had expected to see some 3,000 or 4,000
p)eople present. I do not think the*
voters present would exceed 6oo people.
There were some ladies and a few citi
zens from the city present. It appeared
to me that most of the people present
were from the country. County chair
man B. F". Perry presided and intro
dtuced the speakers.
('apt. Tillman was the first speaker.
I will attempt no report of his speech
as it wvili appear elsewhere in these
columns. In my judgment he delivered
one of the best speeches I have yet
heard or read from him. It was not
full of abuse as some of his utterances
have been, although he said he thought
there wvas need in many places for the
application of a mustard plaster and
not for a poultice. Most of his speech
wvas devoted to answvering the open
letter of C'ol. A. P. Butler in regard to
the Agricultural D)epartment. I will
attempt no abstract of his speech in
this connection. The crowd that was
there wvas decidedly, in my opinion, in
favor of Capt. Till man, and everybody
seemed to be in a good humor. Yet
there wvere a goodly number of people
present who> had come there to hear
and to listen and indulged in very little
applause. ('apt. Tillman paid a very
hiigh compliment to A. B. Williams of
the (Greenville News as an able and
fearless. honest and outspoken editor,
but hie thoughit he wa~'s a little off' the
track at present, and he advised the
ple~l to read the newspapers, whether
the editors were on their side 'r not.

I had to, leave Greenville at 2 o'clock
andl as ('apt. Tillmnan spoke for two
ho'urs, I heard but little of the other
prcecs. Genm Earle was speaking
when I left. lHe is a fine speaker. Yet
I was sorry to see a d;sposition on the
parit of Mr. Tillman's friends not to
hear Geni. E'arle. For the first fifteen
or twenty minutes of his speech he was
frequent:ly interrupted with cheers for
Tiillman, vet nothing seems to confuse'
hiim. I trust that at the meeting in
Newvberry on F"riday all candidates
who speak wiil be giveni a fair showing~
imd a respectful hiearing.
When I had to leave G en. Earle had
juist begun to speak of the March ('on

opinion thiere was no necessity for it.

p)art of sonic t . array class against class.

was on the crowd. I am unable to say.
pressed with the fact that Greenvill
would go at present with a majority
for Tillman. Yet Gen. Earle has many
-trong and influential friends in the
city and county. Gen. Bratton too
has some strong friends there.
It is a long time yet before the cam
paign ends, and there is no way of tell
ing what the end will be.
Greenville seems to be a delightful
little city, and not so small either, as it
is thought the pre3ent census that is
being taken will show a population of
12,000. There are elegant residences
there, and the city seems to be build
ing up. Through the courtesy of Mr.
J. T. Nicholas, General secretary of
the Y. M. C. A. there. I enjoyed a drive
over the city. Mr. Nicholas has many
friends in Newberry who will be glad
to learn that he is getting on nicely in
his work at Greenville.
I left the city at 2 o'clock, and on the
train corning down were several gentle
men from Anderson. Some of these
gentlemen were discussing the Con
gressional race in the Third District.
One gentleman who is in the councils
of the Tillmanites and the Farmers
Alliance, said, and as he did not speak
it as a secret, I feel that I am betraying
no confidence in repeating it,' al
though he was not talking to me, that
it would be decided at the meeting here
on Friday whether Hon. J. A. Sligh,
of Newberry, or Mr. ). K. Norris, of
Anderson, would be run as their can
didate for Congress from this district,
that is as I understand it the candidate
of the Tillman party, or Alliance can
didate. From what I could gather, I
hardly think Mr. Norris will be in the
As this is to be a campaign of educa
tion, I trust that every voter will be
willing to hear every side, whether he
be Tillman or anti-Tillman, and make
up his mind honestly and fairly and
free from prejudice, and cast his vote
for the man of his choice as his best
judgment may dictate.
Let no one deafen his ear or harden
his heart, but view the issues and the
candidates honestly and squarely and
exercise his franchise as a free white
citizen of South Carolina.

P. S.-Since writing the above I see
that the daily papers estimate the
crowd at Greenville on Tuesday at
from I,500 to 3,000. Somebody is doing
bad guessing or bad counting one or
both. I have no desire nor intention
to misrepresent any thing, and when I
said there were about 600 voters pres
ent, a stated what I conceived to be the
truth as nearly as I could estimate. I
had reference to the voters who were
out where the speaking took place. As
I came up town I noticed quite a num
ber of nien on the streets and in the
stores. I had no reference to these. I
do not believe there were 1,000 people
present at the speaking, counting wo
men and children. One gentlemar
with whom I talked as we stood in
rear of the audienge, estimated thE
crowd at 500 voters. I do not claim tc
be an expert at estimating the number
of people in any crowvd, and I do not
care any thing about the number of
voters that were present at the Green
ville meeting, I only gave my estimate
which was corroborated by the opinior
of others who were present.
The Greenville News says there wvere
2,000 persons present. It ought to know,
I suppose, but if there were, 2,000
people makes a much smaller lookina
crowd than I thought it did.

Rev. Dr. Bailey in his excellent ser
mon at the Baptist church on last Sun
day morning, amongst a great many
good things, took occasion to say thai
one of the greatest needs of this age
was moral purity. Not only to know
the right but to love that which was
There can be no question about it,
that the great thing to be desired by
this age, as well as that of any age, is
not only that men shall know the right
but that they shall love the right. We
need men of character and mnoral
purity of life not only in -natters of
church but in matters of State as well.
We sometimes fear that this qualifica
tion is too often overlooked when we
come to select those who shall admin
ister the affairs of government. Purity
of life and stability of character are
very important qualifications, for those
who seek honors at the hands of the
people, to possess.
The education of the mind is very
important, but the education of the
heart is vastly more so. That the great
mass grow up in ignorance should be
dreaded as a pestilence or plague, but
particular and peculiar stress should
be laid upon the importance of purity
of life, stability of character and a love
for that which is right.
The man who feels that his cause is
right, and who feels that in advocating
that cause that he is advocating a right
principle is "thrice armed" indeed.
Then let us impress upon our young
people, and the older onces too, a love
for the right and for justice in every
ocation in life, and until in their
minds the value of purity of life and
the importance of a perfect and com
plete and symmetrical character in
which all the virtues are developed.

Hon. W. C. Benet, of Abbeville, is
announced this week as a candidate for
Congress from this district. Mr. Benet
is an able and intellectual man. He

an able advocate and champion of the

valiant service for the college. s a

Governor. Or if that cannot be had
then a primary election for delegates
to the State Convention. We have
observed that in the counties where
the party machinery is in the hands of

why not let theni express their prefer

We will be so crowded this week that
we will be unable to publish the reply
of Capt. Tillman to Col. Butler, but we

To the Democratic Party of South
Fellow Citizens-I announce myself
as a candidate for the office of Attorney
General of this State upon the Ticket
of the Farmer's Movement, subject to
the action of the Democratic Conven

I endorse the platform of principles

be more explicit, I rise or fall with the
candidates of the Farmers' Movement.
I recognize that this is a government
of the people, by the people and for the
people, and that as a consequence the
offices belong to them.
I believe in rotation in office, feeling
that it is conducive to the good of the
Democratic Party, and that it rebounds
to the welfare of the State.
I believe that our government can be

I believe that there are precedents

be supported and developed without
any increase of taxes.

SENT TO THE WRONG ADDRESS.
[News and Courier.]
Gen. Y. J. Pope, of Newberry coun
ty, has issued an address "to the Dem
ocratic party of South Carolina" an
nouncing that he will be "a candidate
for the office of Attorney General of
this State upon the Ticket of the Farm
ers' Movement." Geni. Pope says that
he endorses "the platform of principles
adopted by the March Convention,"
and "the candidacy of Capt. B. R.
Tillman for Governor" and declares
that he "shall advocate the wisdom of
his election." "To be more explicit,"
as Gen. Pope puts it, "I rise or fall
with the candidates of the Farmers'
Movement." He also says that he be
lieves in "rotation in office," and there
fore he wishes to "rotate" in the office of
But, really, we do not see why Gen.
Pope should have addressed his pro
nouncement "to the Democratic party
of South Carolina." He should have
directed it to Capt. Tillman or Capt.
Shell or President Talbert of Mr. Irby,
or to the campaign committee of Capt.
Shell's Convention. He does not saiy
that he is a candidate for Attorney
General on the Democratic ticket; he
does not say that he endorses the plat
form of principles enunciated by the
Democratic party, but he announces to
the Democratic party that he is a can
didate for a prominent State office on a
ticket with the nomination of which
the Democratic party as such has had
nothing whatever to do. Gen. Pope's
address is altogether one of the most
remarkable features of a remakable
Gen. Pope says he is a candidate
"upon the ticket of the Farmers' Move
ment." But the "Farmers' Movement"
has no ticket. The March Convention
refused to make any nominations. It
only offered two "suggestions," one of
whom declined to allow himself to be
used for purely political purposes. The
Convention did not even suggest Gen.
Pope, and it seems no be a little incon
sistent that one wb~r'nognizes "that
this is a Government ot tne people, by
the people, and for the people, and
that, as a consequence, the oflices be
long to them," should not permit the
people to select the men whom they
would prefer to fill their offices.
But there is no doubt about it now
that Gen. Pope wants office. He says
so himself, although he does not give
any good reason why he shlould have
it. It is nothing but fair to him, how
ever, to say that he is a candidate for
the office of Attorney General, not 0on
the Democratic ticket, but on the Till
man ticket. We do not know what
Capt. Tillman wvill do about it. "The
Democratic party of South Carolina"
have nothing to do with Gen. Pope's
candidacy. He does not want the
Democratic nomination. He is going
to rise or fall, nlot with the D)emnocratic
party, but with Capt. Tillmani.

~ho is not a candidate for office! nt
WHAT IS TIE TILLMAN CtEED:
The "Suggested" Candidate Has Declared
To the Editor of The News and
Courier: It is to be hoped that at the
opening of the campaign next week
we shall be informed what measures
are intended to be established by the
Tillnian movement, or if no particular
measures are to be advanced by that
movelinent, we who have decline<d to
enlist under the Tillian rlag would be
glad to know it: and if we be considered
witho,ut right in the premises, surely
those who have exhiibiteal an nclina
tion to support the gentleman whose
naiie the ioveinint bears ought to be
told exactly what lie proposes to do, or
to have done. He comes before the
people as a reformer of abuses, as the
representative of important ideas, as
the exponent of principles essential to
the rights and prosperity of at least the
majority of our population.
In the absence of other light, one
would take it for granted that the cam
paign is to be conducted solely with
reference to principles or measures. For
the persons who brought Mr. Tillman
into the field not only adopted a plat
form before they adopted Mr. Tillman,
but formulated that platform as the
declaration of the principles governing
their action. and in this after serious
deliberation. And the importance of
the doctrines and measures announced
in their platformr was, in their opinion,
so great (as we are given to understand)
as to justify a departure from every
rule or precedent hitherto recognized
by the Democratic party of this State.
And but a bare majority of the March
Convention voted for the nomination
of candidates for the two offices of
Governor and Lieutenant Governor.
So it would seem that that Convention
intended a campaign about public
measures, and about them alone.
Yet certain expressions employed in
the call for that Convention, and cer
tain expressions of Mr. Tillman in that
Convention and in his public utterances
since, suggest that it is possible that
we are to be treated to a campaign
largely compounded of personalities
and platitudes, and that the people
may not have set before them any
public measures of practical importance.
Mr. Tillman and his assistants will
enjoy the privilege of talking as they
please; they will soar; if they choose,
into the empyrean of Jeffersonian
platitudes, (for, wise and useful as he
was, scarcely any other man, except
Martin Farquhar Tupper and Abraham
Lincoln, ever talked or wrote more
scattering generalities than did Thomas
Jefferson) or else they will, if their
tastes allow them, to indulge in un
gnited venom and scurrility. These
are things which are left to the will of
a public speaker.
But the people want to know, and
they have the right to know, just what
reforms and improvements in aftairs
the Tillman movement proposes; and
any attempt to sway or inflame the
people, farmers or others, without con
vincing their judgments and offering
them some substantial relief, will be
an insult to their intelligence and an
infamous breach of their confidence.
They clamor for an improvement in
their affairs; they have leaned on Mr.
Tillman, so far as they have shown a
preference, in the trust that this move
nient will better their condition; and
they have, therefore, a right to know
what is proposed to be done in their be
half. The question is, shall they be
gratified, or shall they be merely en
tertained with the average stump
harangues, which consist mostly of
poor jokes and malevolent personalities?
Shall they be taught their needs and
the means to supply them, or shall
they be only alarmed and enraged~
Shall they be enlightened and reasoned
with, or shall there be only an effort tc
capture their votes by exciting their
What is needed is a full, fair discus
sion of measures affecting the public
interests. The people, unless I greatly
overrate their intelligence and sense of
public duty, will be satisfied with
nothing else, and whether satisfied
without it or not they will be grievous
ly wronged if they do not have it.

Obligations for Railroad Employees.
[Charlotte Observer, 7th.l
Sonme of the employees of the Rich
mond and Danville Railroad are agi
tated on account of certain obligations
which the authorities wish them to
assumne. Many of them have been
asked to sign an obligation to totally
abstain from the use of intoxicating
drinks and to use their influence to
keep others from places where they
are sold. Many of thenm say this is
signing away too much of their privi.
leges. One railroad man said that
many of the employees would not hes.
itate to take upon themselves these
obligations if the officers of the road
woul do the same thing.

Cured by Cuticura
Mv disease (psoriasis) first broke out on my
left'cheek. spreading across my nose, and al
most covering my face. It ran Into my- eyes,
and the physician was afraid I would lose my
eyesight altogether. It spread all over my
head, and my hair all fell out, until I was en
tirely bald-headed; it then broke out on my
arms and shboulders, until my arms were just
one sore. It covered lmy entire body, my face,
head and shoulders being tihe worst. The~
whte scabs fell constantly from my head,
shoulders and arms; the skin would thicken,
and lbe red and very itchy, and would crack
ad bleed if scratched. After spending many
hundreds of dollar., I was pronounced In
curable. I heard of the CUTICURA REMIEDIEs,

the dreadful disease from which I had suf

would leave a very deep scar, but the CUTI

A TALK WITH TILLMAN.
Confident of Success-His Lieutenants on
the Stump-He will do his Best to
[Special to the News and Courier.]
AUGUSTA, Ga, June 7.-Farmer B.
R. Tillman, who is seeking the office of
Governor of South Carolina, was in
Augusta to-day teaching a new man
the route to deliver butter to his custo
mers in this city. Your correspondent
stopped Mr. Tillman, who is an enthu
siastic aspirant, and had a short con
versation with limi on the politics of
the Palmetto State.
I first asked him who would aid him
in stumping the State. He answered
that Col. Y. J. Pope, of Newberry, and
Mr. Eugene Gary, of Abbeville, who
are both after the office of Attorney
General, and Mr. H. L. Farley, of
Spartanburg, who is a candidate for
Adjutant and Inspector General, are
booked to make campaign speeches.
"Then there is a contention between
Messrs Pope and Gary for the same
office?" I queried.
"Yes," replied Mr. Tillman, "they
are both after the same office, Each
man will 'take his own skillet through,'
but they will preach from my platform.
They will all be in Greenville on the
10th, and I am going to speak. too, if
I can get there," continued Mr Tillman.
"What do you think of Kolb's defeat
in Alabama?" I next asked the farmer,
for your candidacy and Kolb's is con
sidered in the same light.
His retort to this pertinent question
was: "I see no analogy between
mine and Kolb's candidacy, for he ran
as the Farmers' Alliance candidate out
and out, and I do not consider myself
a candidate of the Alliance, for I ad
vised the Alliance not to enter politics,
and I asked them not to take any ac
tion as an organization in my behalf."
"Well, who nominated you at the
Convention held in Columbia last
"Why, the people, of course," he an
swered. "That was no Alliance meeting.
All classes of people were invited to the
Convention, but of course there were a
number of farmers there. In fact you
cannot hold a meeting in Carolina
without bringing the farmers in."
Mr. Tillman then said that he hoped
two or three more candidates would
enter the race for Governor, and gave
as his reason for that desire that all
could not then speak at the same meet
ings; and that would give some of them
a chance to get a rest.
As to the cry of any division among
the Carolina Democrats, Mr. Tillman
said that was all nonsense, for "lam a
simon pure Democrat, and will abide
by the Democratic Convention. The
only truth of any division is between
the Democrats and the ringsters."
The only thing that is worrying Mr.
Tillman, lie says, is the labor of the
canvass, but he intends going around
the State with the crowd as long as he
"Do you intend to answer Col. But
ler's open letter in defence of his man
agement of the affairs of the board of
"I will reply to that in Greenville,"
responded the farmer, who says he has
encouraging reports from all parts of
the State upon his chances for his elec
tion. "Why," says Mr. Tillman, "if
they will give me a free vote and a fair
count I will scare the ringsters in Char
leston. They are already scared; but I
mean a think I will clean them up,
and believe I will do it anyhow."
This ended the colloc uy and, after
securing copies of The News and Cou
rier containing Gen. Earle's letter of
announcement as a candidate for Gov
ernor and the communication contrib
uted by Mr. T. J. Moore defending the
board of agriculture. Mr. Tillman sub
scribed to the daily edition of The News
and Courier during the campaign, and
then left for his dairy on the other side
of the river. J. J. Hi.
