parEsteemied "Needle" Tells of the Late
Campaiga 7eettng at Helena-His
Views on the Situation.
I attended the campaign imeeting at
Helena Thursday and saw and heard
what little I did hear-for myself. A."
I had read the newspaper accounts of
the previou, meetings- desired to seee
how that -particular meeting would
compare with the newspaper reports
that would follow. For the under
standing of those who may read this
it would perhaps be better to state at
f-the beginning that I went to the meet
lg a supporter of Governor Tillman.
Whether I am still a supporter will be
seen as you read, and you won't. have
to read far either. But.don't condemn
It in "prejudice before you read it, as
narrow-winded people geneaily do.
, t is the truth that -hurts., If you be
coe' angry and disgusted, and snort
and te.+ and pitch" and want to wipe
-tip the earth with me when [ say- that
t ':'iman sbould -be re-elected, please re
member that I am the same man that
had he fairness and honesty to say
ast week that Mr. John C. Wilson
made friehda in havingc the manhood
'ttlilyC his Sheppardism in a
Tllmani stronghold. Doubtless
there were some: Tillmauites who did
et like the compliment I paid Mr.
Wllsi; but I do my own thinking.
y The humbaet of ua have .a right to
} express our. opilions. Some people
think, or profess to, tbipk, that is is
a olflcus mn a "cprivate" having so much
to siy-that is, when he's for Tillman;
but it is all right for private-Dr. W. E.
elham or private "Yu-Be" or anyone
elson tha,, side to write as much as
he sees fit. Why is-it so dignified and
"lust exactly. right" for such men to
have their say, and so egregiously and
ridiculously and insanely wrong for
one on the .other side to open. his
mouth?. Dr. Pelham may, write ever
vswell and accurately; but he has-been
too bitter-and.shows-bis one aim and
epd too plainly to influence votes. The
idea.ef)r. Pelham telling men to lay

- The News and Courier says 200 Till
man men were from Elgefield. From
a dailyperusal of that newspaper one'
would think, if influenced by its teach
ings, that there are not 200 Tillman
men in Edgefield County, by the way
Sheppard is going 'to clean up things
over there. Why Edgefield certainly
must be going fo iliman by a larger
majority than she polled before if she
-is able to send two hundred men to
Newberry. "I like a liar," Mr. News
and Courier, "but you please me most
too well." It's the same old cry of two
years ago over agaip. All the meet
ings were composed of Tillmnan 'men
from surrounding counties; the antis
attending their own meetings and
never leaving home, the Tillmanites
flocking to other counties than their
own. Such being the case all over the
State, it is very funny that Tillman
was elected Governor. Very funy.
And very mystertous. You ought to
wait until the lies of one campaign are
forgotten before you try again; the
people are not foolsg-if you do think
IThe Haskellite press are badly wrong
when they attribute the howling down
* ' of Youmans to a fear of the Tillman
side hearing the truth as they proclaim
* ~ ing'their papers dor't change votes
from one side any more than from the
other. That idea is disproved by the
fact that the closer aTillmnan Democrat
*reads and studies the Independent Co
lumbia State the firmer a supporter of
our Governor he becomes, as in the
case of the'm.ter for instance.
If Youmans would make a conserva
tive speech he would be listened to;
* -- but when he gets up arid seeks to bully
the man who .was elected by these
men it is natural that they should re
sent it. You don't understand these
men, you Sheppardites. Strip your
* selves ofyour prejudice. Yes, certain
ly, there is prejudice on our side, but
let's get at the bottom of it and come
* .to an understanding, if not for the
- good of the State now, then surely for
the good of old South Carolina two
years hence. 'These men,.then, I say,
feel-and honestly so too--that they
elected Tillman. Put yourselves in
their places. He is their Governor,
and they personally feel the insults
heaped upon him. They know he is
not right in all that he does; but as
long as the fact remains that the men
* . who are taking the most active partin
the movement to defeat him are the
men who bolte-l the Democratic nom
-ination and voted the Independent
ticket they will continue to resent it,
and'-you may as well come to your
senses on that subject at once and for
ever. It was Wade Hampton who said
"an independent was worse than a
Radical.". What makes it less natural
for aTillman man to resent an insult to
the Governor-the Governor, mind you;
not B. R. Tillman-than for a Conserv
tive to ti.ke op for Hampton? It is
time for :ensible men on both sidese to
coude:n the wr,t, on both sides and
,rom the right on :ot! -ies form a
basis of justice where conservative men
may eome together in 1894.
[For Newherry's "arbitration" com
mittee I suggest Messrs. J. F. J. Cald
well, Jas. Y. Culbrea' h and Alan John
stone-one farmer, one lawyer and one
farmer-lawyer-Without regard to their
politics. It would be the extremity of
folly to have two rabid Tillminites or
two rabid antis, and one red-hot man
from each side with a sort of conserva
tive umpire could only agree in a -jPr
rot and monkey way.1
In 1S90 I had the fortune (or the
misfortune, view it from either stand
point you may please), to be on the
Tiliman aide. When a voter is a sup
porter of one side or the other he has
to take the bad along with the good.
Being on that side, and standing ever
ready to give a reason for the faith in
me, I wrote one campaign article,,
signed "Burr Joyce." I was repeated
ly urged to write again. With the ex
ception of a few campaign reports and
controversies,~I did not- write another
political article, simply for the reason
that it is against my nature to "run
things into the ground" and to please
one-side of the general public to. the
thorough disgust of the other, as both
sides are now doing beyond their most
sanguine expectations. But time flies
and the campaign of '92 is upon. us in
all its fury, and the question again
rings out to each one of us: "Watch
man, what of the night?" I wish to
be as plain as an old shoe. I do not
attach any importance to what I say
beyond any importance that attaches
to what any other common individual
might, could .or would say, let it be
what it may or result as it will. De
spite.my silence and strict attention to
business for the past two years I have
been put down as "red-hot", so I may
as well give play to the. spirit that
When Hampton was defeated by
Irby, and Tillman accepted a free pass,
among other things done by the Dom
inant Element; I. was seriously in
clined to forsake them, as I was satis
fied 'in having helped to change the
order of things in South.Carolina, and
was not at that time averse to "con
version." It would be unwise to- re
fuse conversion simply to be consistent
-in that case a sinner would be 'eter
nally lost. I know "wise meti change
their minds, fools never." I was al
mcst persuaded to go with A. B. Wil
liams of the-Greenville News when he
said that the only safe ground was for
conservative men rthe conservative
men of South Carolina and not the
misnamed Conservativesl of both fac
tions :to get together and shove aside
the extreme Tillianites and the ex
treme antis. As'a South Carolinian,
and having no special, self-interest in
the Tillman party, it'would have been
an easy matter to occupy such desira
ble middle ground. I was becoming
warmed up to it when Mr. Williams
made his famous but somewhat strong
declaration that he and the News and
all connected with it would go to h-11
before he would allow the Gonzales
crowd to take part in the then pro
posed March convention. We all re
member the warm debate between
Williams and Gonzales; how the latter
declared he'd see whether or not they
took part in that convention. Ah, -my
friends,there's the rub. Gonzales did
get in the convention, but -Williams
has not gone to that warmer country
and I hope he never will, for "with ali
his faults I like him still.'? We all
knowethe result: Gonzales didn't crawl
1n; he landed in on both feet,- and if
Williams hasn't yet 'seen h-il, Sbuth
Carolina certainly has.. -
'Granting that three-fourths of what
the other side says is true, for the sake
of argument, there is one- thing alone
that o~plains why "Ephriamn is joinead
to his idols." It is the non-submission
and bitter 'hatred' of a small and de
feated minority. Reason as you may,
argue as you will and plead as you see
fit, ye disturbers of the peace an,d unity
-of South Carolina, the fact stares you
in the face that you are responsible for
the present bitterness and strife. I did
not uphold the proposition for the first
March convention, so admitting that
it was equally wrong as the- second,
-and that thererwere among that large
assemblage in 1890 one or two former
Republicans who then.and there re
turned to the fold, it does not obscure
the fact that Tillmani was triumphant
ly nominated and elected by the hon
est Democrats of the proud old Palrget
to State, and that a sore and rejected
minority refused to submit to the will
of the majority;, not only refused to
submit, but openly rebelled with scorn
and bolted with contempt, and, in al
most frenzied insanity, voted- for and
therebyf became an Independent or
Third party. Forget it! Yes, in- the
hour of death and the silence of the
great hereafter. Bitter? For what?
Not because honest men and good
Democrats in this free country exer
cised the rights of American citizens to
oppose *be man, whom tbey did not
like, while he was a candidate for the
nomination. Only a senseless fool or
a drivilling idiot could object to that.
Bbt bitter because a few 'men-up to
thattime respected for the brave stand
they had maintained, in- the face of
overwhelming opposition, for what
they conceived to be right-after par
ticipating in the convention, refused
to abide the result-not of a close and
contested majority, but a far-reaching
and all-powerful mnajority.
Individually there are men in New
berry whomTilike regardless of their
Haskellism, against whose characters
there is no word of !eproach; but of
whom, colleetively, it is our right and
duty to overwhelm completely at the
polls for the future peace and unity of
And who, I would like to ask, are
the men that worked and voted for
Tillman? They are the men who, liv
ing in the surrounding country, rose
from their beds in the dawn of that
eventful day of '76, and with eager
hands saddling and bridling their
horses, stood ready for any emergency
in their determination that South Car
lna should again be free. The same
men who, on those memorable days of
'76, during the campaign meetings
from one end of the State to the other,
could be seen coming into the towns
from every direction, their banners
proudly fiying to the breeze, their
horses prancing to the music of the
bands and their red shirts glistening
in the morning sun. Oh, it was all

right for them to raise the rtbel yell
then and cheer their chosen leaders.
Their shouts were musical then, and
HamptQn could crook his little finger
and "the boys" would obey. Hamp
ton, who could command stern men to
do his will, did not have them "in his
breeches pocket." It was all right to
go wild over leaders then. How could
Hamto or any other man, have Te
deemed South Carolina if it had not
been for the men at his back? And
how could Tillman have ever been
Governor if he 'had not received the
votes? Yes, but Hampton is a better
man than Tillman and is not an office
seeker and it was a different thing then.
Just simply granting that, for the sake of
argument, this is true, it does not alter
the case one iota. Even if Tillman was
as black as-he is painted, it would not
alter the case now: he was made Governor
of the State, after a thorough canvass of
the State, by the people of the State, and
the minority did not submit, have not
submitted, and, judgingthe future by the
past and certain signs of the present, will
not submit. If the first March conven
tion was wrong, the second was wrong,
and, if possible, worse, for two wrongs
never yet have made a right. Tillman
was wrong in accepting what he had first
condemned; they were equally, or more
palpably, wrong-indoing the same thing.
You can't make black white. But 'you
must fight the devil withfire," you kgow.
Oh, yes, it is "all owing to whose ox is
gred" of course. Consistency is a beau
tia ndrr jewel; itis so rare that it
does not shine in the crowns of that vain
lorious and-self-arrogated band of "mar
tyrs* whose briny tears mingle with the
uddied waters of the Conigaree.
Tillman's followers are not blind to his
faults and mistakes; they are not led
around "by the nose" by Tmlman or any
ther leader a bit more than they were
by Hampton and Haskell in 1876. Bute
illman's supporters are* well aware of
one thing,and that is this, Mr. Editor, and
it cannot be rubbed out by crocodile tears
r hyp6critical prayers:, all this running
around; this great interest in the farmers
and others, this pleading for bheppard,
this Iively looking into the abandoned
land sales, this exhibition of the poll tax
carecrow, this exposition of the abolition
f the lien law, this great bugaboo of the
educational qualification, is, separately
and aggregately, for the one and. oly
purpose .of defeating Benjamtin B. Till
an and by that means crnshing at once
ma forever the mighty lever that made
im Governor. They say it is not so;
hat if you would sonly open your eyes
and listen to reason you would see. Lis
en to reason. Great God! 'was there ever
such hypocricy? Do you call it reason
hen you ask one of them if he ever
eads Tiliran's speechesand he answers,
'No, byG-d, Idon't"? Do you call it
eason when the papers parade every
istake that Tillman makes and never
raise the least good that he does? Do
ou call it reason when they condemn an
Anderson "mob" for assaulting Murray
aid excuse Abbeville "gentlemen" for
assaulting Benet? Do you still call it
eason when-men seek to win your votes
y even condemning your Governor for
he-good that he does-seeking to turn
onest votes from himnbecause he upholds

hey are strongly and extensively con
ected. The -Governor's - enemies -seize
pon this opportunity of injuring him
njuring a man in the house of his friends
-actually attempting to infiuence votes
gainst a Governor because he does his
sorn duty as Chief Magistrate of the
State towards his own friends. Do you
all that reason? Do you call it honest?
Did ever hatred and bitter malice descend
o low? Deep down in their otherwise
onest hearts these enemies of Tifiman
ust feel that they are sometimes unjust,
sometimes u-uel, sometimes too bitter.
Do you call it reason when Conservatives
sk you if you uphold the wrong on
our side-and after you have the hon
esty to say Do-in the next breath excuse
ll the wrong on their side, or oftener
ever acknowledge any wrong ,at all?
Would that men could listen to reason on
oe side as well as the other! But why
ultiply instances? I could fill a page
n The Herald and News with their mn
onsitences and wr6ng-doings.
Knowing that there is no use to tell
hem what Tillman has done, for they
on't read it and don't believe it, it is
seless to- recount his acts here. So,
assing over the facts, I come down to
he very nutshell of the whole business of
the present campaign as now conducted.
Reason on both sides has been thrown
o the four winds of heaven; passion and
rejudice prevail. It is not whether B.
. Tillmian is fit for Governor; it is not
whether Sheppard is a better man. It is
that a minority have sought and areseek
ing to force a majority to submit to them;
to do their bidding if it brings on inter
recine war. With all their brag and
bluster I think they see the handwriting
n the wall. But it is too late now. The
dye is cast. Even if they were to give
the Governor that which is rightly due,
they could not win a vote. They have
been too malignant in their abuse; tg'r
persistent in their inconsistency; their
work has been accomplished. It is just
uch as this that makes the solid Tiliman
men the firmer in their determination to
2phold their Governor-under any cir
cmmstances and in any emergency-the
men who can never be moved by bribery
or intimidation. It is not a question that
Tillan should be succeeded by Shep
aard; it is that a spurning and scorning
inority shall bemade to submit to the
will of a majority of the right and true
Democracy of South Carolina.

NEWBERRY, S. C., Aug. 17.-Ex
Governor Sheppard to-day made the
followiug reply to the open letter
recently aIldres>ed to him by citizens
AB13EVILLE, S. C., Au;. 17, 1S92.
Gentlemen: In reply to your open
letter, appearing in the News and
Courier of the 13th iust., permit me to
Thdt I believe that the honor of our
State, and the welfare of our people in
the future, depend upon the niaiite
nance of white supremacy; that white
suprenacy can be maintained only by
the preservation of the unity of the
Democratic party; that the unity of
the Demoertie party can be preserved
only by the adoption and faithful en
forcemeret of such rules and regula
tions for the government of our party
primaries as will aftord absolnte guaran
tee of an hions-st lball.'t, opel count,
and just result.
Believing thus, I dlo not hesitnte to
sty, in reply to your first inquiry, that
it is impousible that I can ever ignore
any faction of the~.p\arty organized in
conipliu:ce with itsrults,n d obligated
to stippoit its just -esults; and it is
equally iurpossible that, if tlected to
offie, I can'ever regaid any faction of
the party "as the admnisitration party
and so etititled to all c.niideration."
Tbe - answer to 3 our second inquiry
follows-that if I ehould he elected-to
office I will see "that equal justice is
done and equal consideration shown,"
as far as shall be in my power; and as
far as shall come within my province,
to every faction of the Democratic
party in every city and every county
in South Carolina.
I have the honor to remain, with
great respect, your obedient servant,
