NEDIES Y. RUST 2, 1893.
The editor has just returned from a
business trip to North Carolina and we
find that in the past few days the rains
have been pretty general, but before
that they were partial. In some
places the crops are fine and in other
places they seemed to have suffered
We find the same cry over there of
"hard times" and the scarcity of
money that is to be heard here at
If it is the fault of our national legisla
tien it is to be hoped that the Congress
which convenes next week will do
something for the relief of the people.
But we think it will be a mistake to
look too much to legislation for relief.
Much of our outside space is taken
up this week with the Farley-Irby
Tillman quarrel. No doubt many of
our readers have seen it but some have
not and then we want to keep a record
It should be a matter of regret
to all law-abiding and peace loving
citizens, to see prominent officials en
gaging in such wrangles. The Herald
and News does not propose to pass
judgment on the merits of the contro
very, but we do say that the whole
thing is an ugly piece of business, and
no true Carolinian can feel proud of
any man who has been placed in posi
tions of honor and trust who will en
gage in such mud slinging. If Mr.
Tillman's letter be true it would seem
that there has been some ugly work
going on in Washington among some
of our citizens who were sent there to
attend to business for our people.
There may be more developments
and maybe by and by our people will
get at thetruth. Maybe after awhile
they will find out what sort of leaders
they have been following.
The whole thing is to be very much
Congress i. caiied together in extra
session. It will convene Dext Tuesday.
it is to be hoped that it will devote
itself to business and do what is best
for the country. The members should
not be too much concerned about lay
ing foundatiwzs for re-elections, but
should apply themselves to the mat
ters of legislation in bar.d.
The-financial question is the one im
portant one that will need their atten
tion. Just what is the best to be done
we will not -pretend to say, but if any
relief can come from Congress we
hope it will be speedily forthcoming.
It seems to be a pitty that Col. D. K.
Norris can't get an office. He appears
to want one very much. That is n"eh
ing unusual, however, for nearly every

few years ago when as good authority
as Gov. Tllman himself declared that
to be a trustee of an agricultural college
was honor enough for him.
The meting at Greenwood last Sat
urday seems not to have been so largely
attended as was expected. Gov. Till
man was not there, and neither did he
attend the State Alliance meeting. In
fact he seems to be keeping exceedingly
quiet just now. No doubt he has his

Herald and News has always consid
ered Mr. Evans a very good man. We
do not expect, however, to see him en
dorse the Third party platform, still
holding on to the Democratic organi

and alwau tell us just where he is at.
The Herald and News desires to say
that if any of its readers desire to give
expression to their views on any sub

not matter whether you agree with us
or niot. Discussion of any subject, if
done in the proper spirit, will do good.
All we ask is that you express your
views in courteous and respectful lan
guage and that you be not personal or
abusive. We have had entirely too
much of that sort already for the pub
lic good. It is not elevating or in-~

George S. Turner, the Wealthy Spartan

[Special to News and Courier.i
COLUMBIA, July 2.-In the Su

muarkable c.se so far as the Courts are
concerned. The last decree has gone

riches and the employmzent of the very
best legal talent could avail him noth

of the death sentence.
In no case have such herculean ef
forts been made to save a man's life. It
seems that there were some who in
tended to sue Turner for $3,000 dama

he is hanged the action dies with him
and no one will get a cent. Hence some
wished his life saved, and did all they

:condensed from the News and Courier.1
WALHALLA, July 27.-There is a
pretty little graveyard within fifty feet
of the place of the sixth annual meet
ing of the Farmer's Alliance. This is
perhaps suggestive that before the
Alliance men again see Walhalla there
will be a burial ground filled with
political corpses. Certainly to-day's
actions anticipat - such results. Either
the Alliauce wants its burial suit or it
hopes to see one procured for the Na
tional Democracy in South Carolina.
The South Carolina Alliance has
east the die and plainly says it intends
to "force" its demands as an issue in
the political campaign. There is to be
no dodging. Loyalty to every Alliance
demand is required for Alliance sup
port, be that woat it may. The News
and Courier has been something of a
prophet as to Mr. Evan's election to the
presidency of the Alliance. When time
was called W. D. Evans was the only
real candidate in the field, and the
Administration-Bowden candidate, D.
K. Norris, was not presented and Don
aldson declined to run. He and his
friends are happy over his vindication
and the defeat of any suggested candi
W. D. EVANS ELECTED PRESIDENT.
At the night session the principal
business was the election of officers,
which was started about 11 o'clcck.
During the day it seemed pretty well
settled that Norris would not be no
minated, and his friends had reason to
believe he would be defeated and did
not care to arouse any antagonism.
To Col. Norris's credit it must be said
that be has nothing to do with the
matter. Vice President W. D. Evans
was nominated in a fine speech. Don
aldson's name was presented, when he
made a brief and dignified statement
that be bad to emphatically decline to
allow his name to beconsidered. Evans
walz tben elected. Joseph L. Keitt, of
Newberry, was elected vice president
and J. W. R id, of Spartanburg, and
F. P. Taylor, of Chesterfield, secretary
and treasurer respectively. Evan's
selection is about the best that could
have been made for the Alliance. He
is an independent man and is not
bound up by pledges.
Governor Tillman's friends perhaps
get little satisfaction out of the election.
Ever since the memorable railroad
commissioners bill, Tillman and Evans
h . not been especially devoted. Col.
Evans, while a Reformer, is not a cost
tail swinger. neither has be had any
one else to do his thinking. Col. Keitt's
election was perhaps a sop to the Third
Party element. Resolutions thanking
the authorities of Clemson Cotlege and
the citizens of Walhalla for courtesies
extended were passed. After debate
at the night session the Alliance lectur
ers were taken out from State officers
and put under t'-e control of the State
officers. Several were elected and will
be called for by counties as wanted.
The Alliance set about with the
determination of getting through with
its work as soon as possible. At 10
o'clock the body wsq called to order
and remained continuously in session
until 1 o'clock, and then took only an
hour's recess for dinner, and went
back in tbe afternoon to tackle the
silver question and tell the good peo.
ple of the country how to inject a finan
cial elixir into the nation; why Cleve
land was "one of the robbers," and all
about running a great nation. 0f
course everyb>ody knows that the Alli
ance is a secret organization and that
its proceedings are sacredly guarded.
A press committee has been appointed,
but nothing much is given out by it.
After the morning seMion the commit
tee graciously sad: "We did nothing
except a great deal of routine work."
But there are ways known to the aver
age reporter of getting what he wants.
So everything except that which is
labelled "official" is guess work, but
the correctness even of that is worth

The most important question con

ment is acknowledged. The Alliance
has had competent officers, but to-day,
after a hard 8ght, the secretary's salary
was cut from $800 to $300, and the
president's from $300 to $l50! It is said
that Mr. Norris led the fight against
such a reduction and my information
is that Burn, of Darlington, "jumped"
on him in vigorous style for having
taken such a stand. The committee
on the president's message submitted
complimentary resolutions on his ad.

THE EXCHANGE DID A GOOD BUSINESS
Among the members there is some
talk about President Donaldson's .le
liverances, and especially as to that
part where he said his respects to the
demagogues in polij:icn. T be reading
of reports of committees consumed a
considerable time; among the most
interesting was that of the State Alli
ance Exchange. The report indicates,
so far as can be learned, that tbe buRi
ness of the Exchange for the past eleven
months has been very good, aggregat.
ing about $170,000 to $180,000. A little
over half of this is for fertilizers. The
business is strictly cash or for thbe best
commercial paper. The committee on
resolutions found plenty of work on its
bands, as Senator Keitt's resolution oc
silver, banks, etc, was lengthy. Its
consideration took place at the after
F.ON ALDSON'S SIMION PURE DE3MOCR ACY
During the day there was a decided
turn ing towards Donaldson for some
reason, and I have heard not a few
delegates say that he could be re-elected,
His friends claim that he has fully
twenty-five of the delegates. It went
so far that friends waited on Donald
son to secure his consent to allow thE
use of his name. Dooaldson declined
to run on the ground that while in
sympathy with the Alliance and itt
purjgse lhe was not hostile to Cleve
land or the Democracy, and with these
convictions be could not be at the head
of the body in South Carolina as at
present operated. Moreover the Alli.
anece organization was opposed tc
Cleveland and the Administration,
wbieb action he c-ould not e.id"r-e. H e
has every reason to feel satit'fied with
the talk of delegates.
THE AFTERN(oN SESSION.
At 2 o'clock the Convention reas
sembled and continued working~ on its
mazes of giddy "whereases" until dark.
ibere was a brief adjournment, and a!
9 o'c'lock the delegates retua ned with
t1. avowed purposeof finishing up all
the work to-night, if it took ten more
hours. There was but little chance tc
see the press committee ano the only
t bintz given out was Keitt's resolution,
which is destined to become celebrated
in the political history 'of the State.
Brit people want a general ideaof wha1
was done. To begin with, a resolutiori
restricting the v-oting power to elected
detegates and the president in case ofta
tie was passed.
Up t3 this time various standing
committeemen, doorkeepers, chaplain,
lecturers, treasurer and all have beer
allowed to vote. Spartanburg and
larger counties complained and the
voting~ power was restricted to thirty
six, thbe number of the delegates and
the president. The financial conditiot
of trhe Order has occasioned muet
worry of mind to the Alliance dee
eates, and the executive committee, ii
is understood, recommended that the
services of the seven Alliance lecturern
be dispensed with. There was a strong
at~d hard fight on this line for a lout
time, and the question was finally
tponed until the evening session.
Te general opinion is that the lecture
system will be abandoned. The main
action of the Convention has been the
adoption of an Alliance programme for
the next election in the shape of Col.
Keitt's resolution. In a word, the
Alliance wants the whole hog oi none,
and intends to force all candidates seek
ing the Alliance support to epdorse
and defend the Ocala platform. Dis
cussion on this resolution branched off
into a general discussion of Alliance
principles, particularly tbe silver ques
THE DEMAGOGUE BURN.
Cleveland received a "large and en
thusiastie" portion of the blame, The
hurrah of Burn, of Darlirgton, was
not more than a tirade against Cleve
land and "modern" Democracy. He
said that Democrats in league with
Republicans, and led by Grover Cleve
land. were runing the farmer. Then he
called Cleveland the Czar at Washing
ington, and that Cleveland bad made a
million dollars in a recent speculation,
which money was robbed from the
people of the South. Then he talked
about Wall street and the Farmers'
Movement and States rights and Till
man, and wound up by attributing the
whole responsibility to Grover Cleve
land and other robbei.. The delegates
seemed very free to talk, perhaps jok
ingly, about Lecturer Burn's talk, and
suggested that he repeat it. This was
the only mention made of Tillman
during the day. The discussion ranged
from the first Coinage Act of the last
century down to these exciting times.
Perhaps one purpose of the range of
these discussions was to let brother
Alliance men know how much they
know about financial matters. But the
following resolutions of Col. Keitt will
show what claim Alliance candidates
have to pose as Democratic candidates:
KET'S ECHOES FROM OCALA.
Whereas, the legislative demando of
the Farmers' Alliance and Industrial
Union represent the highest develor
ment in the evolution of our Order and
is the essence of'reform d,m .nded by the
people in their effort to overcome pluto
cratic domination and restore good
government; and whereas, the only
reasonable hope for relief to the farmers
and laborers of our country resides in
their uncompromising loyalty in sup
port of these a emands ; therefore, be it
1st. That the Farmers' Alliance of
South Carolina do hereby solemnly
ledge its faith to the brethren of the
Jnited States that our unqualified
support shall be given to secure the
enactment of these demands.
2d. For the purpose of faithfully car
rying into effect the above resolution
this body hereby notifies the Congress
men from this State elected by the
Alliance influence, that this Order ex
pects them to oppose the repeal of the
.herman Silver Act, unless the repeal
ing bill embodies a substitute giving
free and unlimited coinage of silver
upon the basis of 16 to 1. And also
they are expected to oppose the repeal
of the 10 per cent tax on State banks.
3d. In order to further protect our
demands and force them as an issue in
the political campaigns the executive
committee of this body is hereby in
structed to submit the latest legis!a

and have copies transmitted to every
subordinate Alliance in the State and

be sent out by the secretary of each
Alliance in the State.
These resolutions were introduced by
Joseph L. KeiLt, who is recognized as
one of the leading Third Party men in
the State. They were favorably re
ported by the committee on resolutions,
consisting of Keitt, chairman, T. 8.
Browning, of Berkeley, W. D. Evans,
of Marlboro, Representatives Mitchell,
of Fairfield, and Galloway, of Fairfield.
The only changes in thbe resolutions
from thbe original copy is in Section 2,
which is changed from "Unless the re
pealing bill embodies a substitute for
free and unlimited coinage of silver,"
so as to read after amended: "Unless
the repealing bill embodies a substitute
giving free and unlimited coinage of
silver upon the basisof sixteen to one."
As far as can b.e learned there was
no opposition of conseuence to the re
solutions. 1In the lan.gua'ge of the comt

One of them said that the meeting

his been freely reported. He said that
Mr. Evans himself would support Gov

men and Reformers would do as long
as he kept ir. touch with the movement.
He said that there was no talk among
the members about downing "boss

by the members of that order.

Stability of the South.
[From the Boston Heraid.]
The South appears to be standing
the financial strain much better than
the West, and Southern capitalists are
much gratified at the record of that
section. They hold that the distrust
of the West aroused among investors
will result greatiy to the advantage of
the South, whose stability shows so
well by contrast. A New York ne%-s
naper recently contained the startling
aeadline, "Twelve -lore Institutions
go Down in the West and South." As
eleven of these institutions proved to
be in the West and only one in the
South the Manufacturers' Becord of
Baltimore found the statement sug
