WDIESDIY, JULY 27. 1892.
Gov. Tillman came proclaiming that
rings and caucuses and combinations
must go.. The people must rule. The
"old oligarchy"-we believe that means
the rule of the few-must stand aside
andIet the people come in. The people
before his coming had never been al
lowed to have a voice in the affairs of
government nor in saying who should,
and from such bondage he had come to
deliver them. The slogan w.Z taken
up in every county by his followers
and leaders, and the people believed it.
The old courthouse ring must be
Well, how is it now? Have the peo
ple secured the liberty they were prom
ised? is it not true that there is less
freedom now than under the old plan?
A few leaders meet, put out a ticket
and you must vote for it. The lines
must be drawn. How much freedom
is this? Will the people stand it? We
do not believe they will. We beli we
they will"assert their independence and
vote as they please.
"A fight of the factories and banks
against the people." That is in sub
stance theeicuse of an argument which
nearly every speaker is urging as a rea
son for the present administration to
have a new lease of life. It is usually
brought out in some form or other be
fore the speech is finished. Did you
ever think of it seriously? How absurd
it is. How foolish it is, and how utterly
devoid of rhyme or reason. Why
should the- binks want to fight the
peole? If the banks should desire to
oppress the people pray tell us why the
factories should desire to do it? Now
please don't misjudge our motives. The
editor of this paper has not a dollar of
bank or factory stock. Unfortunately,
we belong to the borrowing eiars, and
belonging to that class, we would like
to :eemore banks and more .people
with money to lend; possibly it would
be eheaper. -Would it not be better for.
hie famerQ-the people-if there were
,r> enough. factories in Newberry County
to nmnufacture all the cotton we raise?
Is the a man in Newberry County
wio would object to such a state of af
fAis?: If there Is, he wili please hold
up his band and stand until he is
A. prominent leader in the Tillman
ranks in thiscounty told us some weeks
ago substantially that the only hope
for thesuccess of the Tilman cause was
tokeep the people aroused and the ex
citement up. That is bsd isn't it? That
is an admission that without an appeal
to pre.judice and an effort to arrag one
class against.another, there is no hope
for TilHmanism to succeed. Any man
who Yahors to stir up strife is a common
enemy and should be so treated.
Mr. SUgh intimates- that all -politi
clans curse, and in his ardent support
of Gtov. Tillman offers that as an ex
caese for His Excellency's .grofanity.
That may be true, but they have re
1peet for those wiho do not like to
hear, it and do not mix it with
their public speeches. The Rev. Mr.
SSligh had better direct his defense to
some other weak point of the Gover
The Register says upon the authority
-of-Dr. S. Pope that Newberry will give
six or seven hundred majority to Till
man. That settles it.
Talking about taxes, did you kn,ow
that some people who -talk loud and
long about certain property not being
assessed at its rAarket value; when they
go to return their own, first inquire
how other people return their's, and
then they return at the same propor
tion and make affidavit to it. And did
you ever notice another thing, the peo
pIe who talk the loudest and longest
abbout taxes, as a rule, are the ones who
pay very little themselves? But then
they are talking in the interest of the
"dear people," that is, they want the
"dear people" to vote for them and
give them a good fat job.
'The State campaign meetings for the
past week have been more quiet and
rulerly than before. They have been
.The report of the campaign meetings
at Sligha and Young's Grove is some
what longer than we care to have here
after, and we will in future boil down
some of the speeches.
With the $1 poll tax we now have
five negroes serving 30 diays each in
the county jail for a failure to pay.
Because they could not pay five dollars
they will cost the tax payers about $6.5.
How would it be with a $3 poll tax
- when they can't-pay $1?
The county campaign proper will
open at New berry next Tuesday. We
hope to see the campaign run on a high
plane. There is no reason why it
* should be otherwise.
Geo. B. Cromer has been sending the
truth hiome and the people are think
ing. He will coutinue the good work
untii the end of the cam.paign. The
people want the truth and they know
he will not deceive them. Let the good
* work go on.
Mr. Willie C. Wolfe, of Oran'geburg,
is not as big a man as he once thought
he was. He should be more careful
how he makes charges.
The Cotton Plant is very much
worried because Mr. James F. Tillnman
was present at the Alliance conference
at Anderson, and calls his presence
"unwarrented interference." We
thought Mr. Tiliman was the secretary
of the Legislative Council, whose busi
ness it was to watch Congressmen.
But then we dont know anything
about it, nor why Mr. Tillman was at
Anderson, but we had an idea that this
was a free country and people could go
where they pleased without even the
permission of the Cot ton Plant.

HON.- J. M. JOHNSTONE.
The speaking opened at 10.45 by
Chairman A. E. P. Bedenbaugh intro
ducing the Hon. J. M. Johnstone. Mr.
Johnstone, spoke of the quiet of poli
ties six years ago, with nothing special
before the people except the agricul
turalcollege. He said that he prom'
ised them that he would use his best
endeavors to have, that college estab
lished, and did. The college was es
tablished. I disagreed with some of
the gentlemen then in that the college
could be established without an. appro
priation. You see the result.
There are no issues before us. It is a
'fact that'there are two sets of candi
dates in the field-one headed by Till
man and the other by Sheppard. It is
a question of men not measures.
Every wan has the power to vote as he
pleases. A man's democracy is not
affected by voting for either of these
Mr. tobnstone believed in the public
schools. In sustaining measures that
will look to the upbuilding of them.
He wanted every man to cast his vote
on one side or the other of the subject
of Prohibition. Then he would have
the sentiments of the people and would
east his vote in the House as instructed.
Let no man dictate to. you how you
shall vote. Vote as free men. If I am
defeated r shall not say one word.
HON. COLE. L. BLEASE.
Hon. Cole. L. Blease had no issues to
dodge. - Concerning the report- that he
had whipped over on the Prohibition
party, he said that he neither belonged
to the Prohibition party nor to the anti
Prohibition party. That he ~saw fit to
oppose the Childs bill in the Legisla
ture because it was not what the people
'wanted. It made no difference- wheth
er he was a prohibitionist-or not in this
campaign. As a servant of the people
he would cast their vote as they cast it.
He said that he was on no man's coat
tail. That he was endorsed by the
caucus after he was out, and that any
man would have accepted the endorse
ment. ~ I-don't propose to be defeated.
I think that I will be elected. He did
not have time to read the Childs bill
Contradicted the .eport that he had
promised to support it, and thatbe had
been bought for $250, and begged all
who believed the report not to votefor

lieve that Tiliman included him. Then
he showed a reduction of taxes. If
taxes are'more you did it in making
your assessments. I did my part.

he voted and worked for a Constitu

salaries; the Senate-killed it; he would

After a recess fr. dinner, Chairman
Bedenbaugh introduced CoL L. P. Mil
ler. He said that outside of character
and integrity and. duty, there was no
question before them. That'to his miind
there -never had been a more-critical
time in South Carolina. Wdth many
prophets rising up-all leading~ the
people to the promised land, and none
of them getting there. if we can pre
serve the. unity.of the Democracy of
South Carolina we will always be safe.
But when you get astray and.party sen
timent isQrunning ram pant, no man
can tell where it will drift us. As a
white man I don't propose to oppress
the negro. It would corrupt him. You
let ism and party strife get together,
there will be no telling where they will
rest. 'White unity is not for the pur
pose of opprcssion but for the purpose
of civilization. -.
Col. Miiller said that th'e question of
fitness, etc., all comes before the peo
ple. In this canvass you could make
your chioice. - It is a business, proposi
tion. That he represented his own
county in the Legislatare before he
came to thbis county. That it was hard
for a true man to pass through a politi
al crusade without some one to throw
mud at him. I proos to. advocate
those principles which shall uring
about the material progress of the State
and bring back peace and harmony. 'As
a farmer my interests are identified
v:ith yours, but I am not of those that
believe that all ability is on our side. We
must get together. As a farmer I want
to see all of the factories that we can
get. I wish.that those conditions could
be established that would make South
Carolina the dumping ground of capi
He then spoke of overproduction,
and the condition of the farmers all
over the world. That with this state
of afiairs he (the farmer) is ready to
listen to atiybody that comes along. If
a man dares to have his convictions
the only credit he gets is- that he be
longs to a ring or aristocracy. Don't
let prejudice blinid yourjudgmerit and
keep you from thinking and reasoning

The next speaker was Mr. John C.
Wilson. He said he could testify to
the truthfulness of the 'temperance
speeches, but when we come to discuss
te question with the people divided
we must take into consideration all
sides of the question. He was not in
favor of prohibition, but wanted every
body to study it and go to the ballot
and cast their vote. Then as a true
representative he would cast his vote
and try and pass such a bill as shall
give best satisfaction to the people. As
to who is to represent you should ask
who' is suited best to represent yoiY on
the many questions which will come
There is no division with the white
folks of South Carolina. I was told at
the last meeting that it was a ques
tion of Tillman and Sheppard-the
question is whether you are loyal to one
man, B. R. Tillmnan. Are we to be
judged by this? I cannot think thati a
free people; an intelligent, true and pa
triotic people could act thus. I am
candid to tell you that two years
ago I was not ini favor of Mr.
N- ~ ~
uTilman, but when lie received the
nomination I used what little
influence I.had to elect him. If I
represent,u I shall not stop to ask
who is governor shaljdge the thing
by its me&tah 'anll UI upon my
own merits. I haveot %ctted. Till

"That's -tht I- al a mrau') I am
going for ire unient aniieduction
of taxation. Before, I supported every
bill that looked to the interest of South
Qarolina. Ask yourselves whether I
am fitted to represent you and if I am
not. I shall be there to elect the man
that gets the nomination. [Cheers.]
I voted against the reopening of the
South Carolina College and Citadel, not
because I was opposed to education, but
at the time we needed recuperation,
and the State could not support the't'
at that time. They are now open and
deserve the patronage and support of
the State. When the Clemson College
was opened I. thought. that we did not
need it; that it would not tie what it
said it would be. The State invested
its money, and now, under the circum
stanceB, I shall vote for money to com
plete and runit.
Here somebody asked Mr. Wilson
what he thought about the $3 poll tax.
Mr. Wilson said: I don't believe that it
would be right. Because not a white
man in South Carolina, no matter how
poor, would escape. It is aimerd to
make the negro pay his part but in
can't be done. A negro will slip you.
It will- be bard to make the poor man
sell all he has to educate-your children.
He showed how many negroes esca
now, and asked if it would be any t
ter then; and he predicted that the law
would be repealed after one years trial.
No other questions being asked, Mr.
Wilson closed by saying that'he was
notin the interest of any measure, but to
the best interest of Newberry County
and of South-Carolina. [Loud cheer

and spoke of the issues six years ago.

Then - Geo. B. Cromer spoke, not
about the newspapers, but to the news

what an injustice he had done some of

all of the Tillman delegates, by omiting

-Mr. ThorS. Sease wa.s then intro
duced as the silver-tongued orator of

at Watts' as "a lie." Mr. Sease also
branded the reports tha - he had been

calls for him.
THE 3tEETING AT SLIGHS.
SIGHs, July 22.-"Stand and unfold
y ourself." The record was somewhat
broken here to-day. Instead of the
monotony of men and riot measures
or measures and not men we were
treated to a little episode. It was
merely a little question propriety be
tween the Rev. J. A. Sligh and the
Hon. J. M. Johnstone. Indeed it
looked to me at one time (to use the
words of the Register) "as if a bloody
riot would ensue," but it was soon
found that everybody wanted free
speech. Therefore, after a great deal
of getting mad and cursing and rolling
up of sleeves, and remonstrating, and
neaking - off, and "worda, words,
words," everything got v-ery quiet and
Mr. Wilson was allowed to go on with
his speech. -
-The candidates were r.ther scarce
here to-day, and so was the crowd.

weak men iu that community. It
as much as to say that you are a wea
man and can be turned by the doctrin
of The State. I am not telling yo
that Sheppard is not able to govern tb

it is for measures and principle. I at

Mr. Johnstone-Mr. Sligh, wh

Mr. Sligh-I say if they are doing
and it can be proved, it will be deve

have had for years and years. I wat

out for you. There is not a single a
in New berry County who has worka
as hard and done as meuch for the pe<
pIe of the cournty as I have.
Mr. Sligh spoke of the help that bi
was giving the farmers in the Unic
Alliance store, and that all this ht
put him in debt. When I die, wril
on my tombstone that he died fightir
for the people.
Then followed the
HON. JOHN C. WiLSON.
Mr. Wilson did niot think that M
Sligh as a fair man had acted fair. E~
says that he is on a different platforn
Iam on the Demoeratic platform; 1
Is for Tiliman; lam for Sheppard. Aft4
e the nomination I am for the nomine
. I advocate true measures. I have yoi
d interests at heart as much as he ha
y he has it to appear that I was put fo
it ward by ringsters; he tells you abol
ts March Conventions. I said it wi
k wrong. I said no nian who was opposc
to the Iirat could endorse the one of '9l
Weigh me. If you think that I c
. represent you I want your vote; if nc
y I can't conseientiously ask it.
e Mr. Sligh referred to labor and capi
e tal. When such a state of affairs coin
t I will be with you. I am interested i
e well as you. I ask you not to be led o
o by these things. If I have those thiul
e that may qualify me for that positioi
d why vote for me. I an, not running
d Tillman's or Sheppard's coat tails.
d ask all to weigh uay position and sc
whether I am fitted to represent you
e Here Messrs. Wilson and Johustot
asked Mr. Sligh to give them the di
o fereuce of which he spoke.
n Mr. Sligh commenced to explain i
d position. He asked Mr. Johnst,.ne wb
. club he belonged to.
Mr. Johnstone: That's none of you
Thus commenced the little racket, ft
Mr. 51igb took the answer as an insull
o After awhile Mr. Wilson was allowe
is to proceed. He said that Mr. Sligh ha
k a right to bis opiniun and I have a rigli
e to mine. I have always voted the tici
a et. I want the campaign conducted s
e that we mnay;not be divided after ti
primary. I have nothing invested i
' bands, railroads, factories or any
. these things. I am as loyal and hav,
as much of New berry at heart as an
tuan. I an a Democrat. I am just z
o capable to represent you as if I were
o Tillman man. If you can show tin
r Sheppard and his party are trying t
oppress you, then I will join you.
HON. J. M. JOHNSTONY.
t said: Mr. Sligh has seen lit to repri
sent me as being antagonistic to tli
it people of this country. If any tna
1- wants my position I will give It. Thes
r- are no questions affecting the publi
s welfare. Four y.-ars agoI toldyou tin
Y I was in favor of Cleiuson College and
e tried :ny best to establish it. I told yo
18 then that it could not be establisne
e without an appropriation from tl
t State. Now I know it. It looked lik
it a success until the last legislature ri
e fused to make an' appropriation. Ti
- If we could fl,at our debt at four pc
t ctit, instead of six per cent, our taxt
* could be reduced.
r 1 come offering myself with an bonet
r. and patriotic heart, promising to be ft
t your interests. Mr. A and yr. B eac
r. want to be Governor. The questiot
and the only question, is between ti
n two, and I don't care who :says to t
e contrary. If that was not the on
n question, why then I could tell yo
sf how to vote. I ask no man's sutt'rag
' because I hnve been kind or polite t
e him, but if he believes that I have ti
a ability and courage to represent yoi
f why then I would like to have yot
is vote. Let no atan deceive you. Vol
h as you please, without regard to dicti
e tion. Vote as patriots, as South Car
d linians,'as men. Let no prejuaice ent
h your choice.
At The next speaker,
HON. COLE. L. BLEASE,
l believed that it was the duty of the a
a pirant to come before the people and
answer any questions that they m
ask; he was controlled by no factio
but he did-stand on principles adoptt
, by the March Convention of I89
n he Childs bill was not a prohibitic
at measure. As a public officer I sin
_e represent your wills on the questio
yIn all elections lay aside men; vote I
..measures. IffI represent your prin<
mn pIes, vote for me. Don't vote for Col
ty Elease, but vote for the principles
ik represents. He showed from a Sectii
i.of the Constitution that Ben Ti,llmn:
tlcoutldn't put the $3 poll tax on yo
Syou could have a vote on it. If t.

e to speed that they are using it on every
haud, and that they will use plenty of
te money on electien day. It will be
f- i absolutely astoituding to know that all
that has been accomnplished has been

it has been used for printing, tostage,
telegraphing andi clerk hire. The corm
