WDNESKY, SEPTEMIBEE 20. 1S93.
AS TO THE HOIN. JNO. T. DUNCAN.
This gentleman is very much incensed
at The Herald and News, but he tells us
we must not think he is mad. That is
nice. We hope he is not mad. That
would be too bad. He does not like it,
however, because we denominated him a
lesser light. Now really that was too
bad, and we should be rebuked for speak
ing thus of a star of such magnitude.
Then evidently he thinks we meant him
when we made some reerence to small
calibre politicians. We called no names.
But then these things are more matters
The Herald and News will say to the
Hon. Mr. Duncan that it was not indulg
ing in prophecy, nor was it intending to
give any warning, nor can we conceive
how what we did say could be construed
as a stab in the back. If Mr. Duncan
does not know it, we will say for his ben
efit, that we are not in the habit of stab
bing in the back, and whenever we have
anything to say we will either publish it
or say it to the man face to faco.
The Herald and News does not claim
perfection, nor does it pretend to know it
all. Neither does it object to criticism.
All we objected to was misrepresentation.
What lesson Mr. Duncan would have us
learn from our cotemporary, we do not
know, unless it be that we must admit
that we do not know when we are mis
represented. If this be so, Mr. Duncan
will filn us a dull student.
We pablish below the editorial Mr.
Duncan undertook to criticise. It stands
for itself. We say now for Mr. Duncan's
benefit what we said to him at Sligh's for
his benefit. The editor of this paper told
Mr. Duncan as soon as the meeting was
over that we dil uot obj,-t to criticism;
that we expected it, but that we did not
like to be misrepresented, and that in his
criticisms of that editorial he had misrep
resented- us and made statements that
were not true, and that when he under
took to draw conclusions from other peo
ple's statements he should read those
statements so that the people might also
draw conclusions. That,.it seemed to us,
was but fair. Mr. Duncan replied that
he was sorry he had misrepresented us
and would be glad to make the correc
tion the next day in his speech at St.
Luke's. We told him he need not trou
ble himself about that. All we asked
was that he let the people know what we
had said and not take his version of it.
If Mr. Duncan remembers this conversa
tion he must know that we do not claim
a monopoly in the business of criticism
and that what we had to say of him we
said face to face.
The reader can readily see from the
quotations which Mr. Duncan makes in
his article from the editorial in qu'ot'ion
how unfair .A unjust he was in ?Lis criti
cism of it. You can take garbled extracts
from any writing and make it say just
the opposite of what was really said.
This was what we objected to; not the
criticism of what we did say.
Now as to the editorial itself. We
have read it over once or twice and have
tried to see if there was really anything
in it that sympathized with violations of
law, and have failed to fld it. It is
distinctly stated once or twice that all
law should be obeyed, and that this par
ticular law should be obeyed. Because
we do not think it a good law would not
make us advise its violation. We have
on other occasions advised obedience to
it because it was the law.
This statement of Chicco we found- in
the News and Courier. We did not
vouch for its truthfulness, but the pre
sumption is it was true. We did not
know anything about Chicco, but the
-presumption was that he was a citizen of
the State and was entitled to the rights
of a citizen. All that we said was that if
his statements were true, such treatment
looked bad. We still think so. It mat
ters not who Chicco is, if he was a citizen
* of high or low degree, he was entitled to
the same treatment and j.ustice before
the law as any other citizen, even as
much as Mr. Duncan himself. Mr. Dun
can has not shown that Chicco's state
ment was false.
Now, to bring this case home to Mr.
Duncan, let us suppose a case. Sup
pose, Mr. Duncan. that you were charged
with a violation of the law, and that your
wife was sick and in the condition Chicco
says his was, and seventeen armed con
stables-constables, remember-were to
come to your house to make a search,
and demand admission to your wife's
bed room, where she was in bed sick, and
threaten if they were not given admission
that they would break the door down
and drag your wife to the guard house
in the bargain, when you knew that such
demonstration would possibly endanger
her life, what would you do, Mr. Duncan?
If you are a man, you would feel like
getting your gun. Now this is Chicco's
statement. We do not know whether or
not it is true. If not, then our remarks
on it amount to nothing. We do happen
to know, however, that the constables did
threaten to break down the door and
they did go through his bed room, and
that his wife was sick, for one of the con
stables told us so. Their excuse was
that it was the only way to get to the
You seem to object to the use of the
word "spies." In military parlance a
spy is one "sent into an enemy's camp to
inspect their works, ascertain their
strength or their movements, an d secret
ly communicate intelligence to the proper
officers." These men did not go to Chic
co's place as State constables with their
badges on, but they went there in the
guise of private citizens and as his friend
and offered to buy the beer from him
without his knowing their object, and for
the purpose of communicating the intel
* ligence to the others and making a case
against the man they had deceived. It
may have been the only way of making a
case against him, but in order to do so they
acted as spies. There is nothing wrong
in the use of that term. Chicco should
not have been selling beer in violation of
the law, but because he did so is no rea
son or excuse for the treatment he says
they gave his family; and that treatment,
we repeat, looks bad.
And, now, Mr. Duncan, when you say
that editorial was "a palpable attempt to
create a sympathy for law breakers," you
told you at Slighs the day that you made
that speech. And all that you say in
your article about criticism and the ir
reconcilables and a farmers' Governor
and a Legislature elected under the same
influences, does not prove it to be true.
Now, Mr. Duncan, we are truly sorry
if we have disturbed your "equanimity,"
but if you do not desire it disturbed you
must not misrepresent us. You need
not worry yourself about our "wounded
feelings," for we have no such disease
that we are aware of. Neither are we
"mad" at you, Mr. Duncan. We have no
hope of convincing you of the truth of
what we did say, and have gone to this
trouble to answer you only that the pub
lic may know the truth. A man who can
see in that editorial only what you claim
to have seen "deserves the sympathy in
stead of the censure of mankind."
THE EDITORIAL IN QUESTION.
The following is the editorial that
the Hon. John T. Duncan criticised in
his speech at Slighs, and which The
Herald and News claims he misrepre
sented. We are unable to see anything
in It which sympathizes with law
breaking, or which encourages a diso
bedience to the law:
THIS LOKS BAD.
The State's spies have broke loose in
Charleston, and on Saturday the first
arrest was made by them of a man for
selling whiskey after the dispensary
law had gone into effect. The party
hauled in is a man named Chicco. No
doubt the accounts of the affair in the
newspapers are overdrawn, but the fol
lowing is taken from the Sunday News
and seems to be a statement of Chicoo
* * * * * *
Chicco called at the News and Cou
rier office last nikht and requested that
the following statement should be
published so that the Christian com
minity of Charleston may see how
outrageously he has been treated by
the officers of the law:
"About 10.30 in the morning, said he,
some seventeen men came into my
store, ransacked the bar, but found
nothing but rice beer. I took them
up stairs and showed them all the
rooms except my bed room, in which
my wife was lying in bed at the time
in a delicate condition, when any dis
turbance would be dangerous to her.
The door was. locked. The constables
demanded that the door be opened,
and threatened that if it were. not
opened they would break it down and
drag her and all other women on the
premises to the guard house. They
ransacked the bed room and found
"In the next room were some liquors
and wine and beer that had been sold
before the first of July to N. Fontana
and Gardla. The constables took it all
away, and then took all the cigars and
maccaroni, breaking open the cigr
boxes and filling their pockets. ;I
missed a gold watch and chain that
was behind the bar also.
"My wife is very sick, and Dr. Si
mons and a midwife will give certifi
cates to that effect. The fright occa
sioned by the rough entrance of seven
teen men in her bed room and the
threat to drag her to the guard house
made her worse."
Now this looks bad. This man
should not have violated the law, but
because he did, and did sell a little
beer, we see no reason why his family
should be outraged and treated in this
way by thnee whose duty it is to see
that tbe law im enforced.
These same spies who arrested him
had gone to his place and induced him
to sell them the beer for the purpose
of entrapping him. He should not
have been caught, but when once
caught, such treatment as here de
scribed does' not sound nice to a free
and liberty loving people, to a people
who have been taught that a man's
house is his castle, and all that. sort.
We do not believe the people ought
to violate this or any other law, but we
have an inexpressible contempt for any
such system of spies as has been inau
gurated to capture violators of the law,
and any law which makes it necessry
to have such system of espionage is un
worthy to have a p lace on the Statute
books of a free and liberty loving peo
pie. We do not believe the people of
South Carolina will long tolerate such
a system. If the law cannot be en
forced without such a system, it should
he blotted from the books and the page
turned down forever. It will not be a
proud heritage to leave our children.
We do not know what to think of
any man who will hire himself for a
few paltry dollars to act as a spy. He
must feel himself scarcely a freeman.
We are not advising the violation of
law. We believe in respecting all law,
but when alaw has to be enforced by
such a system, it is a poor recommen
dation for the law to say the least.

We have dealt gently and kindly
with the Hon. John T. Duncan, and
have not followed his lead for person

fear he has a species of political de

may impair his ability to discharge his
duties as a citizen of hb State.

In other words the applicant must

Bissell will likely keep himself well
informed so that it will not be easy to
fool him. Mr. Latimer himself is a

"This Looks Bmd."
This is the caption to an editorial of
yours under date of July 19th, 1893.
At Sligh's, Aug. 25th, I told Alliance
men to read and learn the purposes and
aims of the Alliance; and in order to
do this they should read the writings
of friends, for they could not look for
fair dealings and an impartial showing
from those unalterably opposed to the
Alliance. I mentioned as a fact also
that a farmers' Governor and a Legiq
lature elected under the same iDflu
ences, could do little or nothing to the
satisfaction of certain irreconcilables.
I also said some newspapers in their
blind opposition to all originating from
this source, even go so far as to drag
down into contempt the laws of the
land, and worse still even sympathize
with law breakers. Now this is such
a notorious fact that candid men dare
not deny it.
Occasionally we find a man on your
side like Mr. Blake, of Greenwood,who
dares to stem the tide and write down
the fact that South Carolina needs
newspapers that will teach obedience
to the laws of the land. You were
upon the ground and I said, for your
benefit that your editorial did "look
bad," that while you admitted that law
should not be violated, the piece was in
reality a palpable attempt to create
sympathy for law breakers.
In your reply of Aug. 30th, you com
plain of thisjust criticism and attempt
to soothe your wounded feelings by
boasting of your perfection. You ~say
"these small calibre politicians can find
no flaw" in you without "abuse and
What next, Mr. Editor! You say:
"But in in the end that sort of thing
will rebound on their own heads with
tm times the force they sent it." Is
this a prophesy, a friendly warning or
If a prophesy or warning, I would
ask has it become dangerous to main
tain the right and denounce evil? You
have just told me that "as long as one
is conscious of doing the right as he
sees it, these flings cannot hurt or harm
him." If a threat, Mr Editor, "that
looks bad" in one in whom we "can
find no flaw." - I ask you to republish
that editorial of July 19th, also your
profound disquisition on small calibre
politicians of Aug. 30th. Now, Mr.
Editor, you must excuse me for not
thanking you earlier, for I live on a
star (lesser light,) route some distance
from town and before writing I toolt
the pains to secure a copy of the edito
rial, which I had been so rash as to at
tempt to criticise. Of course I must
thank you for the flattering mention
given me under the head of "Some
lesser Lights" in your account of the
day at Sligh's. But, Mr. Editor, you
have disturbed our equanimity. W bat
dire veneance awaits us time alone can
prove. 'Don't stab us in the dark or
strike us unawares. Such "little flings
can not hurt or harm" you, then why
pour out upon our heads your wrath
ten times augmented ?
Now when you take delight week
after week in playing critic, you should
not claim almonoply of the business, for
you can imagine what a privilege it is
for us to hit back when an opportunity
offers. If editors do not hold exclusive
rights, may we not presume to play
As to the qualifications for a critic,
suppose you learn a leason from your
candid contemporary. In his "hon
est confession" of Aug. 10th, he
says: "Five Newberrians of at least
average intelligence and information
met and began a discussion of the "fi
nancial question." In less than three
minutes each one acknowledge he
"didn't knotwa thing about it."
I may know nothing of the influence
of such an editorial as the one I under
took to criticise, but I had some opinions
which I expressed and I leave the pub
lic to judge.
I would Impress these trutbs upon
my countrymen, that 'tis presumption
to claim to know it all, but, with every
opportunity for acquiring information,
It Is servile for a free citizen to refuse to
think for himself and accept blindly
the sentiments of some self-constituted
"leader of thought."
I regret very much that you did not
have a copy of July 19th with you at
Sligh's, for besides this editorial, there
were three other sutbjects dealt with,
on your editorial page, i a partisan
and niased maniner. Mr. Edit or, don't
think me in a bad temper, or mad at
you when [ speak plainly.
We ought to be able to difier, and
even to critici-e without anger, but to
be misbquoted by a "ie-ss'er light" of "a
small calibre" wher, one has "no flaw"
is really to put perfec-tion at a discount,
and 'tis prov",king~ enonugh to justify
ten fold Dunishment.
Publisa that e-d;torlial thuat all may
read: "State spies breke lo--se in
Charleston" inst'e ad of cona:ables doing
their duty. Alt honugh you say there is
"no doubt the acc(ounlt is overdrawn"'
you deliberately take sides with the
law-breaker, a' d instead of criticising
his "overdrawn account," you play
friar for the d--l and pt:blish his ap
peal to a "Christian community",
wherein he tells that constables threat
en to drag to the guard house innocent
and helpless women. In that "next
room were some liquors, wine and
ber". . .. and those spies "fiNed their
pockete" with cigars and the poor
misused fellow "missed a gold watch'
and chain." This is enough to have
provoked rebuke from any truth loving:
man, but instead you say,
1st. "But because he did sell a little
beer we see no reason."
2nd. "These spies induced him to.
sell them the beer for the purpose of
3d. We have an inexpressible con
tempt for .... system. ... to capture
violators of the law."
4th. "Law . . .. unworthy to have a
place on the statute books of a free and
liberty loving people."
You minimize the culprit's crime,
ensure the spies for entrapping him,
vent your "inexpreesible contempt-for
any such system to capture law-break
rs" and in the name of freedom and
liberty cry down the law.
Now, Mr. Editor, I prize the good will
f miy fellowman, but I shall brook the
isplesure of any one who pursues
such a course, for I shall not hesitate
o criticise under similar circumstances. -
f you would avoid it iake Sam Jones'
advice and "quit your meanness."

Dear Sir:-I beg leave to ackn owl
edge receipt ot tbe Equitable Life
Assurance Society's cbeck in settle
ent of polhcy No. 432,233 on the
life of 0Onaries H. Piummer, de
eaed. The~ payment of this claim
witin three days after presentation
of proofs is an agreeable surprise to
me and the other beneficiaries un
der the policy, as I was not aware
that the Equitable had departed
from the usual rule of life compa
nies in taking from sixty to ninety
days in settlement of tbeir policies
after receipt of satisfactory proofs of
death. Mr. Piummer's purpose in
taking out this po)lic3 was to
strengthen his credit, as it was well
known in business circles that! he
at times took great chances in his
At nis suggestion, about two
years since the policy was assigned
to me as security for an indebted
ness. Soon after this he became
embarassed and was unable to pay
the premiums. When the value of
he contLract was explainedl to me
(it being a 15 year To.ntine), I de
ided to pay the future premiums,
t least until the assured's financial
ondition would permit him to re
urn me the money I had paid out.
The wisdom of my decisAon in
~his case is no0w clearly proven, as
be proceedus of the policy will not
nly liqjuidate all my claims, but it
.5 presumned will leave a handsome
>aance for the estate.
1 cannot say too much in express
og my admiration for the company
md its methode; neitbtr can I too
ighly recommend it to other capi
alists who from time to time take
:bances on men engaged in busi
ess wbose transactions are on a
arge scale and at times precarious,

vould be much embarrassed, or
