JUDGE HASKELL'S LETTER.
Judge A. C. Haskell, of Columbia,
whose name has been mentioned for
the position of Governor by the Repub
licans, published on Tuesday a letter
defining his position. We are only
able to give a synopsis of his letter this
Mr. Haskell is a Democrat but he is
unalterably opposed to the election of
Capt. Tillman as Governor, and is still
opposed to him after a Democratic
State Convention has declared him the
nominee. Now, Judge -a;kell was a
member of that convention and parti
cipated in its proceedings, but did with
draw before the convention adjourned.
The convention has met and ad
journed. The State ticket has been
nominated. No Democrat can aflord
to oppose it, for it would be the begin
ning of a split that would be disas
trous to the unity of the white people
of South Carolina.
Mr. Tiliman was not our choice for
Governor but he certainly was the
choice of a large majority of the Demo
crats of South Carolina, and we must
accept and respect this popular will,
however, strongly convinced we may
be that it was wrong. If Judge Has
kell had been in the majority in the
in the convention he would have ex
pected The minority to submit.
We do not believe the convenLion
acted wisely or justly in the matter of
the contest from Fairtield and Sum
ter, but still that, to our mind, is not
sufficient reason for putting a ticket in
the field against Tillman.
Captain Tillman has said many
things that we do not approve and that
we do not believe meet the approval of
a large majority of the people of the
State, but, in spite of this and in the
face of it, they want him for Governor,
and we say let them have him.
Col. HaskelPs letter can do no good
tthe cause of Democracy nor to Col.
6 askell himself, but we do not believe
The nit ofthe Democracy and of
the ht people in South Carolina
mutbe maintained, and we believe it
will Besdes,Col. Hiaskell says Capt.
Tillmnan must be opposed but gives no
way by which it can be done.
Let us have peace.
The report in the News and Courier
that there is a contest fronm New berry
on the Executive Committee is erro
Sneous. There is no contest. Dr. S.
Pope is the member nominated and
elected by the September State Con
THE FOURTH DISTRICT.
As indicated in The Herald & News
last week a second election has to be
held in the Fourth Congressional Dis
trict and the race is bet ween Maj. D). P.
Duncan, of Spartanburg, and Capt. G.
W. Shell, of Laurens. The race prom
ises to be a clos~e one and it seems to us
with the chances in favor of Duncan.
The election is to be held on the 7th
inst. The He'rald and News would
like very much to see Maj. Duncan
nominated because we believe he is thie
most capable man for the position.
Every friend of Duncan's in the Dis
trict ought to go to the polls and put
his vote in for Duncan.
Tom E. Miller, w7ho was given ('ol.
Elliott's seat in Congress by the RIe
publican majority from the Seventh
South Carolina D)istrict last week, got
a check on the treasury for $%,000 for

Allow me space to say to the public,

that have led me to this decision, but
I wish to assure my friends who have
urged the matter upon me, that I am

* A. C. LYLEs.
ro 1,e Democratle Voters or Newberry
In coiplialce with the rcquest of a
4wwd many friends, I have decided to
become a candidate for the vacancy in
Ahe State Senate caused by the resigna
tion of Gen. Y. J. Iope-subject, of
-ourse, to the primary election.
As public meetings can scarcely be
held, and as the time between now
atnd the primary election will be too
Lbort for a personal canvass, I deem it
due to you to announce the prmciples
by which I shall be guided, and the
nliore important measures which I
shall advocate, if mv fellow-citizuns
hall se fit to elect ne to the responsi
ble olice I seek.
I need scarcely say that I an. un
alterably a Deiocrat-that the prinei
p!es enibod-ed in the platforims of the
Deniocratic )arty in the United States
and in this State are my principles
that I insist upon tLe adjustment with
in our own lines of all differences
nng ourselves-Lhat I detest and
shall always oppose any independent
movement-that I shall support to the
xtent of my ability the nominations
recently made by the State Democratic
Convention anI those made by the
Democrats of Newberry in the late
primary elections--and that, however
difOerent the persons whoni I would
have placed on the State ticket if I had
had my choice, 1 will, if elected to the
Senate, cordiall'Y support the next Gov
error and the oftleers of his adniinistra
tion in all measures which they: shall
propol:se for the benefit of the people.
Thus much I say, not because those
who know me can have any doubt,
but in order to set at rest any possible
doubt in any mind in regard to my
po*itiol towards the incoming State
I hold that representation in the
House of Representatives should be ap
portioned according to the population
of counties, as the constitution di:ects;
and I will, if elected, vote for a reap
portionment at once.
I am in favor of using every proper
effort to make Clemson College a suc
cess. 1 thought formerly that its pur
poses could be effected, at a smaller
expense, by the school of agriculture
in the State Univer.-ity. But since the
people of the State, through their
Legislature, have determined upon a
separate institution for instruction in
agriculture, I am determined to con
tribute what I can uo the complete suc
cess of that institution. I have for
many years been a zealous advocate of
thorough scientific agricultural educa
tion; and I was one of the Board of
Trustees who organized in Columbia,
at the University, an agricultural col
lege. in exclusion of all merely literary
and scientific branches, several years
before even Mr. Tillman published a
word about agricultural education.
That institution was made, and kept,
purely an agr=cultural and mechanical
school, unmil the Legislature compelled
us to engraft the academical depart
ment upon it. I therefore make no
change in my principles in urging the
most energetic suppport of Clemson
And I may add, while on this sub
ject, that I am quite ready to turn over
to the Trustees of that College the
Agricultural Department of the State,
including the phosphate and fertilizer
businesses. I,his will secure greater
eicienlcy and economy.
i shall, if elected, exert myself to in
prove our public school system, being
couvinced that our hope for the future
d-epends,'nxt after the providence of
Gbod, upon the education of our people.
We should have the schools every
where open for at least six or seven
rmoths of the year, and for a longer
term if wve can afford it. This increase
of time I propose to effect by doubling
the poll tax, and by, in some measure
at least, proportioning the allowance of
school funds to negro education to the
amount of money contributed.by that
race. By these two measures we shall
materially lengthen the school sessions,
without additional taxation of proper
ty. rThese things may easily be accom
plisbed by constitutional amendment.
I estimate that if the proper penalties
are attached we may cause the negrc
race iu the State to contribute perhaps
one hundred and fifty thousand dollan~
more to the school fund than we now
derive from them.
I shall, if elected, propose and advo
vate the most economical government
consistent with the public interests. I
shall urge the reduction of most of the
salaries of public ollicers. I shall ad.
vocate the abrogation of the rule which
requires the Governor'* reside in Co
lumnbia and maintain an establishmnent
there-which will enable him to live
on a smaller salary. I shall urge the
reduction of the salaries of Judges by
at least five hundred dollars each
though I am in favor of giving them a
longer term of office. I shall urge
smaller appropriations to the Citadel
Academy and the University-dear as
the latter is to me. I shall urge the
reduction of the pay of the Members
of the Legislature (including the Sen
ate, of course,) from five dollars to twc
dollars and fifty cents per day-the
compensation allowed before the wvar.
I think the expenses of the Lunatic
AMylumn should be reduced, but to ex
atly what extent I am not now able
to say. I am not disposed to interfere
with the small pensions allowed dis
abled Coe federate soldiers and the
widows of those brave patriots wvhc
lost their lives in the defense of our
There are other mnatters in which our
expenses should be decreased, such as
the public rinting and the services in
legislative and executive offices; but an
enumeration of all these would reqjuire
greater space than I can now occupy.
I am no enemy to good salaries, and I
regret to urge these reductions; but the
truth is,that we are too p)oor to pay
large sums of mloney, and officers of all
kinds must submit to tile economny and
short allowvances that the taxpayers
have to endure.
A further reduction of expenses can
be effected by the following change in
our judicial system, to wit: the estab
lishmnent of a c-ounty court, with a
judge at a salary of say 6500, with ne
,grnd jury, and with a single petit jury
of say eight per-sons, as wvas the system
for two or three years just after the
war. This court might try all criminal
causes, except capital ones, and all
eivil actions involving one hundred
dollars or less. The saving in jurors'
fees, witnesses fees and other expen
ses, by decreasing thme number of
prsons5 to b)e paid and the length of
the termls, would much more than pay
the Judge's salary, and would enable
the Circuit Court 10 keep up better
with its business. The Trial .Justices
would have to be re'tained: but I would
contine them to arrests, commitments
and suc-h adijutst men ts of trespasses on
erops, disputes b.etwveen landlo)rd and
laborer, and similar conitrover-sies niot
involvingi act ual suits.
1 favor a lnw which shall enable
three-fourths of at petit jury to rendler a
verdiet. I am tired of seeing one or
t wo obstinate me~n wvorry ?asy-temlpered
jurors into an unrighteous verdiet, or
else miake a mistrial, and thereby per
vert justice or else entfail unreasonaufe
epense upon the p)ublic andl the par
tes to a cause.
Thie need of private seals to wvritten
iniftruments should be abolished. It is
absurd that a ragged scrawl after a
mia's signature should be needed to
make his writing a deed "r a mortgage.
I believe that railroa(s, banks and
all other corporations sl ould be taxed
according to the value of their proper

If elected, i shall endeavor to pro

of the race who form the mass of our

laborers should lbe held more rig'dly to
their engagements with their white
emplovers than they now are. I shall
also urge much iore stringent laws
agamst vagrancy, as it is a fruit ful

I am opposed to disturbing the agri

labor and living has been so long
a(dapted to the lien system tha.t I be

These things cause great expense,

South Carolina Izepublicans Not Seeking

CoLUMmA, S. C., Sept. 2G.-Thle
alleged Republican state ticket sent to
The Chronicle fromi Charleston seems
to be simply and solely C. C. Levy's
. ticket. All the lepublicau leaders here
I disown it.
Levy has been in Charleston, and his
disclosures to the newspaper uien there
are apparently bids for a little cheap
notoriety fur himself.
A TICKET MADE UP.
A ticket has been made up by the
Republicans, and authoritative details
in. relation thereto have become known
outside the inner circle of the party for
the first time to-day. Rev. Dr. R. W.
Memmiinger, who has been an Indepen
dent Republican since Harrison's elec
tion, who at the time of the Republican
state convention, was printed as being
the choice of the anti-Brayton Republi
can leaders for governor, was in Colun
bia to-day. Witu a frankness and open
ness most refreshing in these days of
silent statement as revealed to his inter
viewer munch of interest concerning the
purposes of the opposition to the Demo
cratic party in South Carolina. His
disclosures have the charms of novelty
attached to matters hitherto purposely
kept from general knowledge, includ
ing the acaount of a secret State con
vention of the independent Democrats
of the Palmetto State, not a breath of
which has previously reached the ears
of the pmuli.
There will be a State -ticket in the
field against Tillmnan, but it will be a
Republican and not a Democratic
ticket. The adrainistration party of the
Republicans of the State, as the anti
Blraytonites prefer to term themselves,
who secured control of their party at
the recent convyention, have appareutly
sold out or mor.e properly given them
selves away to the M1eLane iHdepen
dents, or "Conservative Repu blicaus,"
as they wish to be styled.
: It is a queer combination and queerly
brought about. 'During the session of
the recent regular Republican state
convention, which wvas held ver.y open
ly, wide open to speak broadly, at the
state house, another state couvention
was held in secret at the postotlice

synopsis of this platform can be given
to the pu blic in ad vance of its intended

The platform opens by asserting that
the policy of the (conservatives) Re

essentially conservative, and is siutarely
opposed to the radical and even revo

In relation to capital we are in favor

JVDGIE HASKELL'S 'MANIFESTO.
iIe Will Not Vote for Capt. Tillnan and
Says an Oppositiou Ticket Should Be
Put Before the People.
[Record, September 30.]
Col Ak C Haskell, in an article in this
inorning's News and Courier, defining
his present position on matters politi
cal, beins by alluding to the frequency
with which his name has been used in
connection vith the office of Governor,
and opposition to Mr. Tillman, and to
the dilliculty with which he remained
quiet under the journalistic advice and
the inquiry of friends as to what he
would do. le then quotes fromi an in

J; ndve Hiskell says that his brother
dws not. fully understan1 his position,
and that the opinions expre.(sed by his
lrotLer create a wrong impression on
the public mind.
Judge .askell savs his position is
this: I will not vote for Mr. Tilinian,
and I contend that no Democrat should
vote for hii for these reasons:
"First (A.) That his 'manifesto' was
false and hostile to our Detnocratic par
ty; (B.) That his speeches throughout
the canvass were slanderous and mis
represented the State and the people;
(C.) That he charged our government
since contr6l was acquired in 1876 by
the white people with dishonesty, cor
ruption and perjury, all of which he
and his associates know to be untrue.
"Second. That the August conven

the written constitution and the spirit
of the party, and that by expelling
certain duly elected delegates to that
convention, the convention was dis
solved, and all further acts by it be
That the September convention was
really called to order by an illegally
elected chairman, and was therefore in
itself illegal, and that the convention
acted in an arbitrary and tyrannical
manner; therefore, in his own words:
" Technically, therefore, as a true
Democrat, I cannot vote for Mr. Till
iman. Legally, I should not vote for
Mr. Tillman. From self respect I will
not vote for him. Morally 1 can not vote
for him. Not only not vote for him,
but a ticket should be run against him.
Minds that are entangled by political
otlice are warped by the importance of
He describes the position of the ne
gro since 1876 as being passive, and at
tributes this to two conditions, both of
which he says have steadily decreased
"The first is a government which
commands the approval and consent of
the whole white population. The other
is such protection of person and prop
erty and all legal individual rights of
the colored race as reasonably conipen
sates their surrender of suffrage, and
renders their condition better than one
As to the Tillman leaders, Judge Has
kell merely says:
"I simply say that their principles
and their practices are alike inimical
to the notions and actions of the ideal
governrment of 1S76."
Hius closing words are:
"To end it in a word : It seems to my
humble judgment more important at
this day to oppose the election of Mr.
Tillman thani it was to oppose the elec
tion of M r. D. H. Chamberlain in 1876.

me then with folly or madness. I will
