WE DO ,'T UNDERSTAND.
The Cotton Plant has a good deal to
say about the platform adopted at the
May convention. There was no plat
form adopted and it wiuld have been
contrary to the constitution of the party
to-haveadopted one. Some resolutions
were adopted and a resolution was also
adopted pledging support to the Nation
a! Democracy. The State convention
which meets next week should not
adopt a platform in conflict with the
national platform when it touches on
The Cotton Plant talks about and
urges the Alliancemen delegat,Ls to re
; ist any change in the platform already
adopted. Those resolutions, whichthe
Cotton Plant calls the platform, were
nothing but the Ocala demands and
they are now embraced in the Third
party platform. If our State conven
tion makes that its platform, will it be
a Democratic platform or aThird party
platform? Will we be Democrats or
Third partyites? Won't somebody
please tell us? If the Third party plat
form is the same as the Democratic
platform, where was the use and sense
of a Third party? If it is not the same,
can a Democratic convention endorse
it and still be Democratic? How can
the State convention endor.e Cleve
land and at thesame time adopt a plat
form antagonistic to the one on which
Cleveland is making his fight? How
can the Cotton Plant, that has all the
time been for "measures" and not
"men", advocate the election of Cleve
land and at the same time fight the
measures for which Cleveland stands?
We confess, Dr. Stokes, that to us, you
have woven a tangled web. Won't
you please unravel it and explain to us
the consistency of your position? You
are for Cleveland, the Dendocratis
nominee, yet you are against the
Democratic platform. You are for
"measures" not "men".- We confess
to some confusion on this point.
You'say "our State platform stands
now, pledged to all the reforms of the
Alliance, there is no excuse for a Third
party. Chr _ the platform, and there
might be a. possible ground for a Third
party." That is, the State platform,
as you call it, is the Third party plat
form. Adopt it; and of course there is
no need for a Third party. But how
can you support Cleveland when he is
on another platform? We confess we
~-do not co::.preh'nd, but wre suppose we
shal eebyand by and we hope all
things will work out right in the end.
Our esteemed friend and fellow citi
zen, the Rev. Jefferson A. Siigh, dele
A- gate to the State convention and nomi
nee for the Senate, seems to be in hard
,,c luck, even amidst his recent victories.
That is to say his name ham. has again,
on two occasions, been omitted from
the published list of delegates to the
State convention. When The Rerald
Sand Newrs acccidently omitted his
name, a great hue and cry was raised
against the editor personally for such
7 omission. All sorts of charges and in
sinuations were made from the stump
about us, so we were told. We were
made the burden of half a dozen or
more-speeches by some of the stumpers.
Well, now here comes the News and
Courier and the Register and both are
guilty of the same sin of omission. We
respectfully call the Rev. Mr. Sligh's
attention to this matter, and ask him
why he has not turned loose his volley
Sinvective against these two editors.
Of course there is nothing now that
could be gained by doing so, but then
there is as r- -h reason to abuse them
as it was to abuse us.
-- We warn these esteemed contem
"Zporaries'not to do so any more.
The Register is taking up a good deal
of space in urging the people to stand
by the primary. TliMPis little use of
S that. Who has even intimated that
Iie was.not going to stand by the pri
- mary. ~The minority so far as we have
been able to see and hear has not even
raised a murmur, but on the contrary
has accepted the result very gracefully.
The only talk of a new party has been
from Mr. Bov:den and his Third party
Z' followers, if be has any, and he was a
~. supporter of Mr. Tilman. Maybe he
has some following, but it would be a
very strange thing indeed for the ma
jority to bolt and go in a Third party.
Will the Register tell us if it feels any
fear on that line?
State Chairman E. A. Webster of the
'1epublican party bias. issued a call for a
State convention to meet in Columbia

A PRESSNG -EED.
There has possibly never been a time
in the history of this country when
there was a more pressing need for true
manhood, than at the present.
There is great unrest everywhere
and in everything.
There is a great temptation to ambi
tious young men to fall in with the
current and drift with the stream in
order to gain place and position and
temporary honor and applause. The
danger is they will do this regardless
as to whether it is right or not, and in
fact, in many cases, no doubt doing so
without considering at a. the great
moral question of right or wroug. The
principal idea seems to be to gain place
The:e is a crying need in this day for
manhood-for moral courage to do and
to say the right whether it be popular
A learned writer has given the fol
low! ng which is apropos here:
"Thepages of history are filled with the
records of contrasted moral courage and
cowardice. I think of no instance more
instructive than that of Charles Sum
ner and Lord Bacon. During the exeit
ing contest that for weeks agitated th-Lgsaueadcomnt fMsa
Legislature and community of Massa
chusetts pending the election of a suc
cessor to Mr. Webster, ballot after bal
lot seemed to offer no hope of a decision
or even progress. From time to time
committees waited upon Mr. Sumner,
urging him verbally to modify his
v'ews upon the tariff, or to relax a little
the vigor of. his statements- about the
slavery question. Charles Sumner was
of the stuff that heroes are made of. He
told these committees, one and all, that
he should abate none of his convictions;
if he were elected to the Senate of the
United States he would be elected utter
ly unpledged. He said he would not
step across the room to change a single
vote in his favor.
"Contrast with this conduct, which
an honest life never tarnished, the sad
confession of England's illustyious Lord
Chancellor. Accused of bribery, the
scholar, philosopher and statesman at
first protested his innocence, but at last,
either- in th cowardice of conscious
guilt, or of tear of the court, said to the
House of L:,rds: I do plainly and in
genuously confess that I am guilty of
corruntion and renounce my defence.
I beseech your lordships, be merciful
to a broken reed.' The Lord Chancel
lor had tr r ned his massive intellect; he
had negli .ed his conscience. When
the awful hour of test came he fell, hu
miliated and broken-hearted. Oh,
young friends! there are wrecks of for
mer men of honor and renown scattered
all up and down our own country, sim
ply because they lacked, in the hour of
trial, the courage of a disciplined con
scienea. Be not ye followers of their
unwolthy examples! 'Be thou strong,
therefore, and show thyself a man."'
Our young men, and our older men,
too, for that matt--, need to show
We sometimes feel that statesman
sl in this day is nothing but a traffic
for'office and the spoils of office.
There has been too much demand for
"measures and not men."
But The Herald and News has great
confidence and an abiding faith in the
good common sense of the- people of
this country and we believe all things
will come out right in the end.
We believe that Grover Cleveland is
one of the brightest examples in this
country to-day of true manhood-a
manhood that has the courage of its
convictions. He has the backbone to
say and to do what he believes to be
right, without counting the conse
quences. Rev. Sam Jones says his
backbone is as big as a post. And we
believe the people of this country are
going to elevate him to the highest
office within their gift.
Give us more true manhood and less
drifting with the current-more inde
pendence of thought and action and
less servile following-more moral
courage to say and to do what is right,
according to on enlightened conscience,
whether it be popular or not.
ACKNOWLEDGES ITS FORMER ERROR.
Our esteemed contemlorary, the Co
lumbia -Register, tells us that Gov.
Tillman and his administration is en
tirely friendly to capital and corpo
rations. Anything to the contrary was
simply circulated for campaign effect.
This is refreshing. Before the election
the Register constantly reminded us
that the issue was one between the
people and the corporations, and time
and again spoke of Mr. Sheppard as a
bank president and Mr. Orr as a fac
tory president, in such manner as to
leave the impi-ession that that was suf
ficient reason why these gentlemen
should not receive the votes of the peo
ple, and should be defeated. The same
thing was done in this county. But
then that was only for campaign effect.
Well, we are glad to know that there
is to be no unjust warfare waged against
capital or corporations,'for we certainly
need more factories and enterprises of
all kinds in South Carolina to develop
and build up our material interests.
The Regi ter further says:
There not a railroad, cotton fac
tory or bank in our State that needs
fear any infringement on their char
tered rights. No legislation will be en
acted to work them injury. All the
people and their Governor demand is
that they obey the laws of our State,
do not seek to trample the political
rights and liberty of their employees
under foot, and help us build up and
develop our State.
Ther:e should be no strife between
the people and capital, for each has a
mutual dependence, one upon the
other. There is a broad and mnviting
field open in our State to investors, and
our administration will extend a hearty
welcome, and guarantee protection to
There has been no effort, so far as we
have been able to learn, on the part of
corporations to violatc the law.
The Herald and News has said time
and again that there should be "no
strife between the people and capital.
for each has a mutual dependence, one
upon the other," but during the cam
paign the "Reform" speakers and the
Register constantly told the people that
it was a fight between the people and
We are truly glad that the "Reform"
speakers and the Register were all
wrong and mistaken in what they then
said, and that they now see and realize1
that fact, and that we are:all new to go
to work as a united people and try to
repair the injury done by such talk,
and to build up our material prosperity.

teachings. Better late than never, we

should specify, esteemed cotemporary.
The Herald and News was an Anti,
but we are now for the nbnince, but
we don't like to see such talk as this
from the Medium.
That is not the way to unify and
solidify the party.

recent convert to Republicanism says

Gov. Tillman now admits that he
did use the language attributed to him
in regard to the "factory class", only
he used it in a modified form. He did
not remember the modification when
at Newberry, and "as it was in the
newspapers, of course it wasn't so,"
but then since the campaign is over
and the dust has somewhat been settled,
the Governor's recollection is better.

ernor has cleared up the "campaign

before the campaign was over. .

Mr. Lat"mer Addresses a Meeting at Abbe

[Special to the News and Courier.)
ABBEVILLE, September 10.-Asbury
C. Latimer, the Democratic nominee
for Congre3s from the 3d district spoke
here to-day before a meeting of the
County Alliance. Several hundred
members of the Alliance werepresent.
Latimer made a spcach on national
issues. After he had been speaking
for perhaps fifteen minutes a note was
handed to John H. Morrah, the pre
sidirg officer, who halted Latimner in
the flow of his eloquence and re
que2ted all present who were not in
sympathy with the demands of the
Reform movement t: leave the hall.
A number of gentlemen left the hall,
when the door was locked and bolted.
The note upon which President
Morrah is presumed to have acted
was conuveyed to him by Charles Bow
en, who said to a Reporter of The
News and Courier that the note was
written by WV. Christie Benet. -
It is not known what Latimer said
after the hall was vacated by the un
reconstructed part of the audience, who
were driven out of the meeting,.but
up to the time they left- he made a
fairly good speech. It is said that he
afterwards made some unnecessary
comments on. local political issues. A
good many men think that, as Lati
mer is running as a Democrat, he
should have nothing to hide from
the Democrats, and that the conduct
of the Alliance to-day is not calcu
lated to restore the era of harmony
and good feeling.

BuzzARtD's B'AY, MASS., Sept. 10.
Grover Cleveland arrived here this
morning from New York and imme
diately went to work on his accumu
lated correspondence. To a reporter of
the Associated Press he said:
"I regard it as absolutely certain
that the material is at hand in the State
of New York to secure its electoral vote
for the Democracy. Of course this can
not be done without faithful work and
harmonious, organized eftorts, but the
Democrats of the State are acculsto,med
to hard fighting, and it would bestrange
if in this crisis of our struggle for party
principles there should be any faltering
or lukewarmness. There is certainly
no indication of anything in our party
councils or management except loyal
effort and hearty zeal. These things
afford at>undant grounds for my confi
dence and satisfaction."

to land passengers from the Cepheus
The Cepheus is anchored about tw<
hundreu feet from the dock.
As the Cepheus ran alongside th
dock the first time a hundred voice
shouted: "You cannot land here; g,
back to New York." Others shoute<
threats of throwing the men overboar<
if they stepped from the vessel. The
hawser that was thrown to a post wa
immediately thrown back. Five pc

"Show us your authority!" He there
upon produced the paper which he be

men, appealed to the crowd to let ther

boat came off again, however, an
Wall asked to have provisions set
aboard the Cepheus. Some in tb
crowd shouted: "All right, let thea
have all the provisions they want,
but a greater number answered: "N<
no! Give them nothing. Let them g

Dr. Voight has just stated that he
informed that Governor Fowler ha
telegraphed Sheriff Darlington, of Su

ties and keep the State property clef
of intruders and protect the Cepheus

Thompson asked to be heard on behalf'
of 200 women and children on the steam
er, who were suffering from hunger, ex
posure and exhaustion. After some
minutes of insulting retorts by the
mob he was allowed to speak. He said
that the meu on the steamer did not
ask to land. The young women would
remain if necessary, but the old women,
some of them grandmothers, and the
children, suffering not for comforts but
for decent care, should be allowed to
land. They would be returned to the
steamer after a night's rest and one
meal. Attorney Williard P. Reid an
swered that if the captain of the
steamer would come ashore the people
to whom he spoke would consider the
request. Thompson returned to the
steamer, and then Senator McPherson
was rowed from the steamer.
"Citizens," said the Senator at last,
"the captain declines to come ashore.
If you will give me your injunction
papers I give you my % ord of honor I
will give them to him and he will ac
cept them as legally served."
"Bring your captain ashore as you
.promised," said Attorney Reid.
"You appear to hesitate over some
legal quibble and your hesitation means
unspeakable sufferings, probably death,
to women and children," said the Sen
f ator. The crowd remained silent.
"If we can bring him ashore will you
agree to let the suflering, innocent help

"They cannot land!" yelled the
The Senator turned his face to the
mob, and, in an impressive voice, said:
t "I appeal to you, men, in the name of
God, not to be longer led into heartless
cruelty by this attorney, but to give
your consent that these women and
children be taken from this boat where
they have nothing to eat, no place to

Tom Watson In a Fight.
[Special to News and Courier.)
a A UGUSTA, September 12.-Congress
j man Thomas E. Watson got into a
a fight this afternoon in coming to
a Augusta to meet Major Black in joint
Sdebate to-night. It happened on the
i Georgia train, which was crowded with
r hundreds of people, mostly Dlemocr ats,
s who came to the city to hear the dis
I cussion. Mr. Frank Jordan, of Han
e cock County, who is an Allianceman
t andi a Democrat, was the g.entleman
e that got into the fracas withi Watson.
, Mr. Jordan in walking through the
i isles of the car in which Watson was
i. seated, was cheering for Black, and re
't marked that Watson was sent to Con
e gress by the Democrats, and that he
e went back on his party and was a
d traitor. Some say Mr. Jordan said
" Watson sold out to the Republican
1 Mr. Jordan had passed Watson when
a he made use of the words, but the
o Congressman lheard him and called
Jordan a liar and at the same time
j struck him in the back of the head.
t Jordan did not see Watson, and as he
e turned to see who had struck him
Watson peeled Mr. Jordan another
g blow, blackening his right eye. Jor
dj dan made for Watson, but his friends,
d who were largely in the majority, in
e terfered and prevented him from strik
-ing Watson. The fight created con
:siderable excitement, and pistols were
'a drawn by many on the car, but no
-firearms were used.
