HOW IS THI.?
The Tillnanites in Richland County
are no doubt in the ninority. Last
Friday they held a meeting in Colun
bia to consider the situation. Among
other things the following resolution
"Resolred, That the delegates to the
next ensuing Democratic County Con
vention, who favor tlq present State ad
ministration, demand . just represen
tation in said conventic. :and if such
representation be refused them, then
they shall withdraw and organize them
selves into a County Democratic Con
vention and send delegates to the May
How does this read for men who are
talking so much about bolting and in
dependents. Suppose the anti-Tillman
men inNewberry,when they were in the
minority, had held a meeting and made
any such resolutions, why they would
have been characterized as bolters and
independents, but in the other fellow it
Another thing we don't understand
is how, under the new constitution,
clubs can meet and elect delegats to the
County Conventions for May 2, on any
other day than April 9. Yet in Spar
tanburg the Tillmanite chairman or
ders clubs that have already met and
elected, to meet again and elect over.
These things are all very queer to us.
It seems that the law is to be strictly
enforced where it will help the powers
that be, and where such construction
will not, then it can be enlarged or so
construed as to meet the demands of
Our County Convention is to meet at
the court house next Monday to elect
delegates to the State Convention
which is called to elect delegates to the
National Democrat ic Convention. The
Herald and News hopes that our con
vention will be peaceful and harmoni
ous. Ther is no reason why it should
be otherwise. IL fact there is no earthly
reason why the State campaign should
be otherwise. Everybody has gone into
it pledged to abide the result at the
polls, and why not let each candidate
have his say and when the ballots are
counted let the man who has the most
receive the support of every one. There
is no profit to the voter in ripping
around and tearing his shirt.
It matters not who ,s elected the ma
jority of us will have to go on earning
our bread as heretofore.

"I met the boys in 1890, and have

* Tillman at Edgefield.
Is that true, "boys?" The Governor
should not be telling it so publicly.
Freemen don't always like to admit
that they are being carried around in
other people's breeches p)ockets. But,
then, we suppose Governor Tillman
It is a great pity we can't get the
truth in regard to the political meet
ings that are being held. Each man
wants to boom his side and possibly
sees things differently, but th!ere should
not be such great discrepancies. In
the report of the Edgefield meeting on
Saturday the State and the News and
Courier agree in estimating the crowd
as about equally divided between Shep
pard and Tillman. The Greenville
Demuocrat says that Tillman "had at
least three to the opposition's one in the
audience, and his triumph was com
plete." But the Register did not
think that was sufficient to make the
"triumph" "complete,'' and puts the
crowd ten to one in favor of Till
man. Well, surely, somebody, failed
to see things as they were. If the news
papers on all sides would keep nearer
the truth their inf!uence would be

Tfillmnan in reply to Sheppard: "D)on't
hide behind Tillman's letters; by God,
come up to the rack."
"'I never nmade any p)retenlsio..s to re

THE EDGEFIELI) MEETING.
The meeting at Edgefield last Satur
day seems to have been less boisterous
t han the one at Greenville the Satur
day previous. We are glad to see this
change. All the :peakers were given
very good attention, and from all the
reports we conclude that both factions
had a good follow ng at the n'eeting.
The speeches were very much on the
same line as those delivered at Green
Gov. Tillman was kept on the defen
sive at lialgefield. He has a lot to ex
plain away, and if he sniceeds in this
he will not have much time left to
make new promises or renew old ones
unfulfilled. He says the accept:ance of
that free pass No. 1 was the mistake of
his life, and he seems now to be sorry
He never saved the State the $100,000
he promised he would in his Newber
ry speech two years ago, but then he
had only a "driftwood" Legislature.
He says he promised to reduce the sal
aries, but his Legislature couldn't get
along with less than $5 a day and they
wouldn't. But did Gov. Tillman re
commend a reduction of salaries?
Every little speaker that gets up now
has got to have his say about the news
papers, and Gov. Tillman is no excep
tion. The newspapers can afford it.
The majority of them are honest and
are writing what they believe to be for
the best interests of the State without
reward or the hope of reward.
We are glad to see the campaign
meeting at Edgefield was decent and
orderly and that every speaker was
given a hear'ng. There is no excuse or
reason in a meeting being otherwise.
The indications now plainly are that
Cleveland will be the nominee of the
Democrats for President, and that

We Should Make the Most of Life.
To the Editor of The Herald and
News: Little did I think, when I
penned you my la I. t+"-. weees ago, that
to-night, Monday, i would again .be
found begging the use of the columns
of your valuable and highly appreci
ated paper, whose subscriber I have
been for more than thirty years; though
its name has been changed more than
once, yet it is still the grand old stand
ard of our beloved county.
Saturday last, with loved ones and
friends, I followed the remains of my
old friend Henry H. Blease, and saw
them laid away in our beautiful Rose
mont Cemetery, while weeping loved
ones stood around and witnessed and
listened to the sad but solermu services,
and tender liands placed beautiful and
lovely flowers upon his grave; and to
day, Monday, I agrin joined a large
concourse of relatives, neighbors and
friends in following to the grave, the
hallowed spot of odi Ebenezer camp
ground, one whom I have known only
to honor and respect, my old friend
and fellow laborer, A ndrew J. Kilgore.
It was there at this hallowed spot
that he and I, with others, worked to
gether with heart, hand and means in
re-establishing and erecting at old Ebe
nezer the largest, most substantial and
well arranged arbor ever built in this
county, and hard by each other we had
our tents, where it was our pleasure to
entertain and welcome our friends and
brethren, but sad to say, many of
whom have passed away, but such is
life. "We know the past, we know
the present too, but, oh! who the un
born future knows."
May God in his wisdom protect,
keep, bless and preserve the orphans of
our deceased friends, and may the con
solations of those who trust in a re
union beyond the grave be their com
fort and stay through these years to
Our hearts are sad as we think there
is no home in our dear old county and
town but has either a vacant chair or
an em pty cradle. How I am reminded
of the words used in an eloquent and
impressive sermon preached by the be
loved Rev. R. D.Smart, D. D., when
pastor of this charge. There is no
home without its skeleton. How few
are here now that were here forty or
fifty years ago.
Fifty-eight years will soon have
passed over~The writer's head, and yet
how short seems the time. But when
the mind runs back over the cares,
trials, afflictions and disappointments
of the past, we find among these many
gardens filled with beautiful flowers,
where we have stopped and enjoyed,
to our heart's content-even to over
flowing-the pleasures and joys of life
while mingling with loved ones and
friends. How guarded we ought to
live, that we may not let the cares and
disappointments of life rob us too much
of our time, but to determine to make
this life, as far as possible, a life that
we can look back upon and find many
oases of joy and gladnss.
Oh how we need these things at this
time, when we hear so mnuch political
discussion which 1 fear will yet culmi
nate in feelings of not only bitterness,
but strife. How forcible ought the
Scripture injunction to come to each
one of us, that every city or house di
vided shall not stand. Heed the warn
ing that was given at a memorable
period in the past, that roused every
heart that heard it, and to-day should
ring out in clarion notes and rouse
every true Carolinian's heart. "United
we stand, divided we fall.'

EnthuelaAin-The Arraignment of
the Ad:ninistration by Ex
Governor Sheppard and
Col. James L. Orr
[Special to News and Courier.I
EI>(; FIFLI., April ::.--The Edgetield
caipaigin meeting occurred to-day.
Every condition was favorable for a
large political gathering. Naturesmiled
and the people turned out to see and
hear. The discussion between the in
vited speakers took place in the Acade
my Grove, in the suburbs of the town,
where a substantial stand and seats for
ive hundred peoplehad been provided.
ARRIVAL OF THE SPEAKERS.
About 9 o'clock Governor Tillman,
accompanied by Col. John Gary Evans,
rode through the :treets of the town.
but the Governor's appearance caused
no flurry or especial manifestation. Mr.
Sheppard and Col. Orr came to the
place of meeting together. An informal
procession formed on the public square
and accompanied by the Edgefield
Brass Band reached the place of speak
ingat 11 o'clock, and rapidly utilized
the seats and the vacant space adjacent
to the stand.
i)GEFIELD ON GoOD BEHAVIOR.
The gathering numbered from 2.0(X)
to 2,5U persons, including about 150
ladies. The crowd was much more
orderly than that at Greenville a week
ago, and while excitement ran high the
exhibitions of ill-temper and howling
were not nearly so frequent and boiste
rous The speakers were, in the main,
accorded a respectful reception.
THE RECEPTION OF THE ORATORS.
Governor Tillman opened the pro
ceedings in a two hours' speech and was
given good attention and hearty appla
use and was the recipient of several
bouquets. Ex-Governor Sheppard fol
lowed in an address of fif0y minutes,
during which he was repeatedly and
enthusiastically cheered and made a
vigorous argument againt Tillman and
his methods. He also received some
extremely beautiful floral offerings and
made a de':idedly favorable impression.
Attorney General McLaurin followed
in a twenty minutes' speech of a mild
characte:. Col. Orr spoke an hour and
handled his points in a manner that
elicited much applause.
BOTH SIDES PLEASED.
At ti-ues both Sheppard and Orr
were compelled to suspend temporarily
by the noise and interruptions of the
opposition. Tillman at times spoke
with some feeling, and frequently when
hits were made by his opponents arose
i'nd interrupted them. At one time the
Governor undertook to test the senti
ments of the audience by a hand pri
mary, and about half the crowd signi
fied the preference for himself. Accord
ing to the best estimates the audience
was very nearly evenly divided, and
the enthusiasm and ability of the dis
cussion were such as to have been a
source of gratification to the Conserva
tives, and probably to the Tillmanites
likewise. Tillman acted on the defen
sive, and was close pressed with two
hours to make an effectual argument.
Among those on the stand were the
following members of the two tickets:
Tillman, Sheppard, Orr, Murphy,
Dixon, McLaurin, Tindall, Youmans
and Farley, and Ernest Gary, Senator
Timmerman, U. Reversible Brooks and
others. Lieutenant (overnor Gary was
not present. Capt. Ernest Gary pre
sided and the meeting was opened
witb prayer by the Rev. A. B. Watson.
Governor Tillman began his remarks
by saying, in the language of Sir Wal
ter Scott, that he was on his native
heath and that hi name was Mc
Gregor. After havitig been equally
traduced,slandered and misrepresented
with Scott's Irish patriot since he took
up the cudgel for the farmers' rights,
he was proud to meet the people of his
home once more. He defied anyone to
point to any falsehood that he had
uttered, or to any mean or little act
that he had ever performed. He was
rough and uncouth, without the silken
arts of the bamboozler. He was the
most hated man in the State.
Tne issue in 1890 was whether the
people or the Ring should rule-the
tight is now between the people and
monopolies and corporations. The
opposition movement was prompted by
those who had appealed to the negro
two years ago and who hated the one
gallused farmers who pretended to
take part in the Governmient of their
State. All the good government that
has been obtained has been through
the farmers. Lawyers and Haskellites
controlled the Conservative Conven
tioni, though it tried to obtain favor by
swallowing the farmers' demands. He
defended his action in the Coosaw and
railroad cases and favored a $3 poll tax
in order to compel the negroes to help
support the schools. He was opposed
to working convicts on public improve
ments and taxing the people to support
THE MISTAKE OF HIS LIFE.
Governor Tillman proceeded to dis
uss Col. Orr's speeches at Laurens and
Anderson, and said the Legislature had
betrayed its pledges and refused to
support himi. He refused to extend the
time for the payment of taxes because
the January interest on the State bonds
had to be met, and his action in the
Agricultural Hall matter was to save
the people from loss. He said, in an
swer to a question, that he had ac
epted a free pass from Bunch McBee,
that it was the greatest mistake of his
life, that it had hurt him, but never
injured the people, and if he had fol
lowed his wife's advice he would not
have accepted it.
He accused Col. Orr of voting for
Judge Willard against Judge Mc
Gowan, and of opressing the employees
of his factory, and accused him of hav
ing been a Republican office-holder,
attached to the Russian legation. Mr.
Orr arose and announced the last state
ment as untrue. He said Sheppard was
swinging to Orr's coat tails, and if
elected it would be a case of the tail
wagging the dlog.
Thbe opposition newspapers were blind
as ad ders and venomous as rattlesnakes.
H e did say at Green ville that be would
go to hell with his followers rather
than go to heaven with those other
people; but he (did not intend irrever
ence and wished merely to emphasize
his devotion to the farmers' cause. He
had never made any preten tions to re
ligion, anid was not a member of the
Baptist Church who ganib!ed and
drank. He was rough and uncouth,
but before God Almighty lie was hon
est. Governor Tillman made use of'
several profane expressions.
SII EP'PA RD'S ARtA IGNMENT.
Mr. Sheppard said it was a matter of
congratulation that this campaign was
to be counducted within the party and
asserted that the first lank of the Con
servative platform centradicted the
charge of H-askellism. He produced
figures to prove that Tillman's Admin
istrationl had heen miore extravaganit
thant the precedingonies, that taxes had
een inicreased arid that Tillman's
promises had never beeni kept. He said
ie had miade utore reconinendations
in his own miessaige to the Legislature
for the 'armiers' good thtan Tillman had
ever done, and that Tillmtan had comn
mended his message at the timie.
Tilirrian had charged Orr with hay
ing voted for a Republican. Three of
the men wvho helpod to nominate Till
man, andl tbut for whose help he would
not have been nominated, attended the
Republican Convention in Columbia
this week amid he had employed a Re
pubican. attorney to conduct his litiga
tion. Tillhuan two or three times arose
to interrupt Mr. Nheppard, whereupon
the latter declared thbat the Governor
cringc J when a soft spot was touched.
The Columbia Register had stated
tield Bank in lending money to influ
ence votes. He proved the falsity of
the assertion by Tillman men in the
audience and denounced the clarge of
the Register as the slander of a viper
and a liar. He argued that Tillman's
advocacy of a three dollar poll tax was
a discrimination against the poor and
scored a hit on Tilliman for his attempt
toihave the lien law repealed.
TIIE ATTORNEY GENERAL'S SPEECH.
Attorney General McLauriii followed
in a well-worded but mild speech of
twenty minutes, which created no en
ORR'S.NEAT TURN ON TILLMAN.
Col. Orr spoke an hour, and appealed
to reason instead of noise. Governor
Til'wan had taunted him with running
for ottice after he had said he wanted
none. Tillman had for years said lie
would not accept an office, yet he ran
for a $3,500 position, and he himself for
one which only yielded a per die,
during the Legislature.
Governor Tillman had promised to
save a hundred thousand dollars a
year. He had failed to do it. He had
condemned extra attorneys, yet had
employed more than the State had in
ten years preceding. Tillman's action
in the Agricultural Hall matter was all
for political effect.
He had voted for Judge Willard be
cause Willard had recognized Hampton
as Governor through an agreement
with the Democrats, and would pay a
political debt as well as a private one,
because his honor and his politics went
together. He had not opposed Sanm
Johnson, a negro in Anderson, because
Johnson voted for Hampton and carried
eighteen hundred negroes with him.
He score d Tillrnan for his arrogance
in the Alliance, and for his backdown,
and told him that he did not dare state
his position on the Ocala demand. He
condemned his dictatorial tendencies,
his three dollar poll tax, his criticism of
thejudiciary, and his losing the State
$135,000 in the Coosaw case. His action
in bringing suit was following out the
advice of the previous Attorney Gen
HE DI)N'T KNOW ANY BETTER.
Governor Tillman then inquired,
why then do you blame me? "For the
fool way in which you did it," was the
reply. The State bonds had depreciated
from 103 to 93, and Tillman had broken
faith with the poor farmers in the tax
extension matter. Tillman said at
Greenville that he was going to write a
new platform and have his boys swear
the candidates for the Legislature to
support its provisions. He (Col Orr) be
lieved that the people would never
give him (Tillman) the power. he sought.
It would be better to establish Tillman
dictator and abolish what would be a
farce of a Legislature.
Judge Tillman not by his promises,
but by his works. He has done nothing
for the farner, and it is well to hide be
hind the farmers when he can't stand
the fire. There is no antipathy what
ever between the farmers and the other
classes in South Carolina, and the man
who undertakes to array class against
class, man against man, and neighbor
against neighbor is no friend to any
THE LESSER LIGHTS.
Speeches were delivered by Secretary
of State Tindal, who exceeded Tillman
in the bitterness of his remarks. W.
Perry Murphy. H. L. Farley and W.
W. Dixon. Solicitor Murphy made a
strong talk, and the '-cung Conserva
tive candidate for Adjutant General
acquitted himself with much credit.

qnest for Him to Wilthdraw.
EDGEFI ELD, S. C., A pril 14, '92.
Editor Advertiser : In the issue of
your paper of this date, appears a very
temperate and respectful editorial, en
titled "Advice to Governor Sheppard."
You thereby, in the presence of the
pc .ple of Edgefield county, advise me
to "withdraw from the race" for Gov
rnor of South Carolina. Permit me
to say, in the presence of the same au
dience, that I did not enter the race
for Governor of my own accord, but
was called upon by a large body of
representative South Carolinians- a
majority of whom were farmers-to go
efore the people as a candidate for
overnor, upon a platform of peace and
unity in the Democratic party, which
s essential to the maintenance of
white supremacy, which is essential to
the maintenance of good Governmwent
in our State.
I accepted the commission thus im
posed upon me as a high and holy
trust, and shall hold it sacred to my
eart without the slightest regard to
the consequences that may fall upon
me. In bearing this message of peace
to our people, 1 shall not inflict upon
them a "useless, senseless and bitter
conflict," but will conduct myself and
the campaign so that when the re
sult is known it will be a matter of pa
triotic pleasure to every Democrat in
the State to "close up" and march
shoulder to shoulder to certain victory
for the nominees of the party. You
may rely upon it, Mr. Editor, that it
ur~people shall "be torn into factions,
arassed and distracted by the bitter
ess of the canvass, and convulsed per
haps by internecine strife, brother
against brother, son against father,"
the fault will not be mine. God knows
that there was "bitterness" enough in
190. Was I responsible for that?
My desire and mission now is to heal
the wound then inflicted, to close the
breach then created, to the end that
ereafter, as well as heretofore, the
Democracy of South Carolina may be
invincible at horue and respected
I acknowledge gratefully ray in
debtedness to the peeple of Edgefield
ounty for the support they have given
me, and for the honors they have con
ferred upon me. In their presence I
declare that I have never been forgetiul
f their interest, un faithful to any trust
they confided in me; and I obligate
myself, by every consideration that is
bindiing upon my conscience, so to con
duct myself as to justify their confi
:ence in me.
Thanking you for your suggestion
'-in the interest of peace and harmony,'
you will permit me to ask if you sin
cerely believe tnat yon are con tributing
to "peace and harmony," when you
refer to some of our people as "Goat
Democrats," and to others as "Sheep
Democrats?" Are we not all Democrats
alike? Have you and I not stood
shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand, in
all that pertains to the honor of our
State, and the welfare of our peoplet
So hereafter let us stand for the honor
of the State we love, and for the wel
fare of the people whose destiny is our
