THE MA:CR CONVENTION AND ITS
The nominations, or suggestions ra
ther, made last week are, so far as we
know, good men. The Herald and
News has been on record for two years
for John C. Sheppard f,'r Governor,
and we shall advocate his election, or
rather nomination. The other names
on the ticket are good men.
We did not favor the holding of this
convention, and were opposed to nom
inations by it; and in favoring the
nomination of Gov. Sheppard we are
in no sense endorsing the holding of
the convention. We took the same
position on this occasion that we did
when the March Convention was held
in 1890: that the people had a right to
assemble whenever they saw proper,
provided they assembled in a lawful
manner; but we only saw a <ivision of
the white people in it, and that has
been the result. The present conven
tion, however, was to restore harmony
and unity. But be that as it may,
both conventions have been held and
the nominations made, and we must
now grapple with the situation as it
We believe that the convention has,
in a measure at least, been successful
in making the way easy for a reunited
Democracy in South Carolina, and if it
accomplishes that it may be well that
it was held.
The platform is conservative and
dignified, and no one can object to it.
The faction it represents is pledged tc
abide the result of the September Con
vention whatever that may be, and
precludes the possibility of an inde
pendent ticket. That is right and
proper. And now let the fight be
made in the proper tone and spirit,
and all will end well.
For the sake of peace and harmony
it may be as well that no formal de
mand was made for a direct primary.
'The constitulion of the party provides
that no amendment can be made be
fore the September Convention, and to
have gotten a direct primary, its pro
visions would have had to be di6re
garded, and we have too much disre
gard of the constituted authorities
The Herald and News is not now
and never has been an advocate of
Tillman and Tillman methods. He
went into office by an attack upon
other men as good as he, and whole
sale charges and denunciation, none of
which he was ever able to substantiate.
He made promises he knew he could
not keep, and the light of later events
has shown he did not keep. The Her
ald and News is unalterably and con
stitutionally opposed to all such meth
ods We shall support Governor Shep
pard, and hope to see him elected. He
has a good and clean record, and the
short time he was Governor was ac
ceptable to all the people; and his only
message to the Legislature is admitted
to have been one of the ablest State
papers ever presented to that body.
But, holding this position, we shall
accord to every other free citizen the
right to hold to his own opinions and
to express them. We want to see this
campaign pitched on a high plane and
free from personalities and abuse and
vituperation. Let us remember that
we are all Democrats and give all the
credit for honest motives and high
purposes. Let the will of the majority
prevail. Let us work fe.r what we
consider the good of the State.
Our esteemed friends who are trying
to tear to pieces the private characters
of the gentlemen who were suggested
at the March Convention last week
forget some very important things.
The editors Gantt of the Register and
Perry of the Evenir'g Democrat, be
cause they can find nothing else to do,
assail the Rev. D). WV. Hiott because he
is a preacher, and say that a preacher
has no business in politics. That may
be true and it may not. We are not
going to argue that point. but only in
kindness suggest to these t vo esteemed
brethren that we have heard of some
preachers in politics who had consid
erable influence, and that it had been
spent recently in aid of the "Dominant
element," so to speak. These brethren
of the quill may tread on their own
toes if they keep up this sort .of argu
mnent. But when they have been here
longer and grown older tbey will learn
We take up considerable space this
week with a report of the March Con
vention. We suppose our readers will
be interested in seeing what was done,
whether they endorse it altogether or
A ppearances indicate the doom of
free coinage through the indefinite
postponement of a direct vote on the
Bland bill. On a motion of Mr. Bur
rows, Republican, of Michigan, to table
the bill, the vote pro and con developed
a tie, being 148 to 14S. The vote of the
Speaker was required to decide, who
cast it against tabling, and thus seemed
to save the measure, which, indeed,
would have been impossible without a
resort to gag-law tacties of the Tom
Reed variety. This alternative was pa
triotically spurned by the Demnocrats,
and the free coinage bill has according
ly been relegated to the House calen
dar, doubtless to slumber. Its friends
did all they honorably could do to
carry it to success.
Our esteemed contemporary at Pros
nerity in its report of the mass meeting
hiere last week labors to make it appear
that it was composed of lawyers and
"sore heads." Now that will not do.
Let us all tell the truth as we go along.
It is hard to do sometimes, it seems,
with some people, but it is 'eetter in

SENATOR IItBY AND THE BANKS.
Last week Senator Irby published a
statement to the effect that he was a
stockholder in one of the banks of Lau
rens and had advised the farmers to
borrow money from the banks for their
necessities, but when he learned that
the banks were charging more interest
than he thought they ought, he had
offered his stock for sale, as he did not
care to be a party to the oppression of
the farmers, nor to make money in that
When we read the statement it im
pressed us that he was trying to make
poliical capital out of it, and the state
:nent was a cheap bid for commenda
tion for sympathy for this class of our
Now the statement is made that the
stock which Senator Irby held in this
bank had been paid for by his note
which he did not pay when it became
due, and the sale was forced. Whether
this is true or not we do not know, but
Senator Irby's statement cannot raise
him in the estimation of right think
With Colonel Sheppard as Governor,
every farmer in this State had as well
turn over a deed to his land to the
first squad of railroad prospectors that
Well, now, we had just as well tell
the truth as we go along. Life is too
short to indulge in misrepresentation.
The editor of the Register knows or
ought to know that the above para
graph is misleading and there is no
danger in the direction indicated.
We invite a perusal of the article
published this week from the Hon. Jno.
W. Scott. The matter of making a
living and paying our debts is of far
more importance than the wrangle of
politics, but for all that our people
should take enough interest to see to it
that we select the very best men for
public positions. We want men who
have the best interest of the State at
The Register speaks of the lonely
feeling of one "hay seed" who was in
the convention last Thursday. We
don't know just what is meant by a
"hay seed" for we never apply such
epithets to any of our fellow citizens ,
but if it i's meant to convey the idea
that farmers were absent, we still
don't understand it for the roil shows
This battle is not one of class, preja
dice or personal abuse.
This campaign should be pitched on
a high plane. There is no use of abus
ing one another. Let the issues be
discussed in a dignified manner, and
when the people speak, let all of us
bow in submission to their will. That
Some very curious arguments are
being used now. Those persons who
favored a primary in I888, but now op
pose one, are trying to parade the in
consistency of those who favor a pri
mary, before the public, and vindicate
their position by proving the inconsist
ency of "the other fellow.'" That is
argum 'nt and statesmanship of a high
In another column we publish Col.
Keitt's bitter and scathing attack on
the Tillman administration, more as a
curiosity than anything else, for while
the Colonel, when he gets on the right
track, writes with a great deal of force,
but his financial vagaries and the fact
that he is a persistent office seeker will,
to a very great extent, neutralize thbe
effect of what he says.--Darlington
The Herald is very much mistaken.
Col. Keitt has not, to our knowledge,
been a candlidate for office for the past
twenty years, or possibly longer, ex
cept when he was spoken of as a candi
date for United States Senator. Col.
Keitt is not seeking office now, so far
as we know, but has the good of the
State and its people at heart.
We admuit there are offlice-holders.
There are offices to fill and there must
be men to fill them, and the people are
going to select men in sympathy with
their ideas and wishes to fill them.
They are certainly not going to select
themi from the political paddocks of
their opponents. And the sooner thbese
malcontents realize this fact, the better
it will be for all concerned.--Eveingz
Will the Democrat please tell what
the present administration has done
for the people. What has it done to
benefit them? How much better off'
are the people byv selecting "men in
sympathy with the people." Tfhere is
a lot of talk about being in "symipathy
with the people'," and being "the peo
ple's candidate," and all that sort of
bosh, but it is getting time to give us
some thing real and tangible-somxe
thing that we can take hold of. If there
has ever been a time when there was a
bi;:ger cry of hard times, it was before
the recollection of this editor. Now
e do not say that the administration
is entirely responsible for this condi
Ition of affairs, but when these claims
are being set up of an ad ministration
being "in sympathy with the people,"
e naturally ask what good that sort of
sympatby with the people," has done
the people. Let us have the facts. That
is all we ask. It is a plain and simple

COL. IETT'S FINANCIAL SYSTEM.
No Analogy Between it and the French

Editor Herald and News: Having
demonstrated in my last article by an
array of authorities incontrovertible,
that the value of mjoney does not de
pend on the material; but on- its egal
tender qualities given to it by law, 1
will now proceed to show that there is
no analogy between the systems of
tiuance proposed by the writer and the
Fre-ch Assignats, the continental
money of our ancestors, issued during
the revolutionary war of 1776, or the
Cedulas of the Argentine Republic.
The system proposed contemplates
the issue by the United States Goveru
iment of legal tender notes receivable
for all debts public and private-real
nc.ney, not promises to pay. These
notes to be loaued through the States
to the people, on long tune, based on
unencumbered real estate where the
fee simple title is unquestioned, and on
nun perishable products for one year,
all. at a low rate of interest properly re
st:ricted and secured. The notes will
be based, not only on the property of
tte entire State, but on that of the
United States, whose wealth is increas
ing at the rate ot $150, tJ,000 a month.
Notes of this description now ''on
mand a premium in London and Paris.
ti.e great commercial centres of the
world, over gold and silver coin.
The French Assignats were notes
issued by the French Republic during
the French revolution, when France
was at war with bonded Europe, and
had an army of 1,400,000 men in the
;ield. These notes were based on :he
icontiscated estates of the clergy and
uobility who tied the country. France
was torn by internal disseusions. A
large portion of her people favored the
restoration of monarchy. The basis of
these notes was practically worthless
and the commercial world knew it.
The restoration of monarchy would be
the restoration of the confiscated es
tate: and the destructien of the basis
of tt notes, hence their depreciation.
The Confederacy that issued tho Con
tinental notes during the Revoiution
ary war of 1776 was not a government
proper. Under the "Articles of Con
federation and perpetual union" no
power was granted to levy and collect
taxes; hence the Contineutal notes had
Under the land mortgage system of
the Argentine Republic a few favored
corporations were chartered to place
the Cedulas or mortgage lands. They
were sold for what they would bring,
the government guaranteeing the in
terest on the bonds which was as high
as S per cent.
There was Co limit to the issue of
these bonds, and great frauds.were prac
ticed in the assessment of the lauds.
Under this system the money was bor
rowed and the government paid high
interest. Under the system proposed,
the government creates money and gets
interest. There is no analogy be
tween the financial system proposed
and those above named.
If adopted it will meet all the de
mands of business. The notes should
never depreciate. They can at any
time be retired, dollar for dollar, by
taking up and canceling the mortgage
bonds on which they were issued.
We are now shipping two-thirds of
all the cotton we make to foreign couu
tries to be manufactured. The great
profit in cotton is in the manufacturing.
The writer had occasion recently to buy
some plow lines. He paid 20 cents per
pound net cash fur themt. No doubt
they were made out of cotton that cost
5 cents or less per pound. What an
enormous profit. Justead of shipping
the raw cotton, factories ought to be
established and every pound manufac
tured where it is grown and the goods
If the financial system proposed is
adopted it will give us the money to

"Civib" Re plies to Colonel Keitt.
To the Editor of The Herald and
News: I regret to see that our friend
of the Enoree Reservation has izone
bck to his idols, 31aeune and D)un
ing, who have so often led him astray.
I had entertained some hope ot late
that he had seen the error of his wa.s,
and would hereafter seek the intormna
tion on which to build up his elaborate
and fantastic schemes from more relia
ble sources. But this hope is blasted in
In the last Herald and News our
sage regales us with a great variety of
eitatious1 from mxore or less distinguish
ed authorities as to what constututes
money. Some of these are applicable
to the question at issue betw.een us,
and somec of them do not touch it at
all. Somec of them may be essentially
correct, hut some of themi are manifest
ly garbled, or so changed as to entirely
misrepresent the views of their author.
Take, for instance, his pretended cita
tion from Daniel Webster : "When all
our paper money is made payable in
specie on demand, it will prove the
most certain nmeans that can be used to
fertilize the rich man's field by the
sweat of the poor man's brow." Now,
everybody at all familiar with 31r.
Webster's views on paper currency will
se at once that this quotation repre
sents them as being exactly the oppo
siteof what they really were. The coun
try never had a statincher and more
osistent op)ponent of an irredeemable
and legal-tender paper currency, not
even in Alexander Hamilton, thau Mr.
Webster. On one notable occasion in
the United States Senate, in 18311, lhe
says: "Of all t he con trivances for cheat
ing the laboring class of mankind, none
has been more eff'ectual than that
wvhich deludes them with paper nmon
ey." H-ow is our friend going to recon
cile this language wit h his pretended
uotation'. On the same memorable
casion, too, he used the following
oft-qunoted and ever-to- be-remuemibered
lanuage: "Most unq'uestionably there
is no legal-tender in 'his country, un
*der the authority of this govern ment or
ny other, but gold anu silver, either
the coinage of our mints or foreign
oins at rates regulated by Cougress.
rhis is a constitutional principle per
fectly plain and ot the very hignest imi
portane. TIhe States are expressly
prohibited froru miaking anything but
gold and silver a legal-tender in pay
net of debis, and although no express
)rhibition is implied to Congress, yet
as Cogress has no power granted to it
n this respect but to coini mlotey andl
regulate tue value of foreign coins, it
learly has iio powver to su bstitute paper
or anything else for coin as a legal-ten
der ini payment of debts and in dis
charge of contracts."
These views of the great orator and
statesat, the great "Expounder of
the Costitution," its Mr. Webster was
called, were delivered in the United
States Senate ou a memorable occa
ion, in t he p)resence of such giant in
tellects as Clay and Calbotun and Ben
ton, and were unchallenged by any one.
If Mr. Clay thought differently, as our
sage would have us believe, then was
the time for him to speak out. In fact.
this was the view universally enter
tained, both in and out of Cougress,
during ali our early history, and no one
honut of putting any otlter interpre
taion on our Constitution until, in
S11, under the pressure of ihe gre.it
emergency of the war, was opened this
Pandora box of evils by passing the fa
flou legal tender act. But this act1
was intended by its ant hors only as a
ihought of as a permanency. Unfortu
oatey, however, in 18S4 our Supremei
c., t hen compoed of piinie in in
tellect, compared with Mr. Webster.
in a moment of temporary mental ab
erration, or forgetfulness of their posi
lion as the guardians of the Constitu
tion, declared this act coustitutiunal,
and thereby fixed upon the country all
the uncertainties and dangers of uo
sound money agitation. This is one of
the enief evils from which the country
is now suffering, and trom wl ~ it
will contine to suffer until sooie
means is found to have this decision of
the court Ieversed and to return to the
correct interpretation of the Constitu
tion as fixed by the "repeated, contin
uous and unanimous decisions by the
court itself, under a succession of
chiefs without a break," as Mi. Ban
croft expressed ii.
We see from the above how garbled
or utterly false must be the pretendted
quotation of our sage froni Mr. Web
ster. The same might no doubt be
shown of most of the others. I do not,
Of course, impute this garbling auti
falsitication to our friend, for I aii sure
lie would not be guilty of such a tlhinl-'.
But, as I have inor: than once had oc
casion to show, this seems to be the
chief stock in trade of Messrs. Mactiue
and Dunning. They seem cap>able of
any kind of misrepresentation or out
right falsehood for the sake of duping
their unsuspecting readers. The strange
thing is that our friend does not see
this, and cease to he nis!ed by t hern.
III coecusion, the sage's intimnation
that Mr. MeCulloch "tertilized his
field" while Secretary of the Treasurv,
is utterly unworthy of so intelligent a
man, and I have no reply to wake to it,
excep,t to so characterize it. Mr. 'Ie
Culloch stands entirely to,) high in the
public esteem for the eniinent services
he has rendered the country for his
good natne to be in the least tarnished
by any such un worthy unsinuations.

The Railroads Will Pay.

CHARLESTON, March 26.--Judge
Simonton to-day filed a decision in
the railroad tax cases. The decree is

Clerk of the Court within ten days a

urer being for the sum of mionecy here
