ELBERT H. AULL. EnrTOR.
THE DARLINGTON TRAGEDY.
Every good citizen of South Carolina
must regret and lament the unfortu
nate occurrence at Darlington last
week. The full particulars of the affair
are given this week as we get them
from the daily papers. The entire pa
per this week is given up to this affair.
It has been the one subject of attention
since it began. The lives of two pri
vate citizens have been taken, and
their homes have been made desolate.
Others have been wounded. One State
constable has been killed and another
said to be mortally wounded. The
people have been aroused and stirred
up to the highest pitch of excitement.
The militia has been called out and
martial law declared in two counties.
The telegraph offices have been seized
and the railroads taken charge of. And
all for what? Back of it all is a law
which has been placed upou otr tatute
books, the enforcement of which has
been made obnoxious to our people.
The spy and armed constabulary sys
tern which has been used to enforce the
Dispensary law is really at the root of
the whole trouble.
But as to the immediate cause of this
present trouble, the Dispensary law
had nothing to do with it. Two pri
vate citizens get into a difficulty. A
State constable interferes. Some words
are passed. The State constable draw,
his pistol and shoots dead a private
citizen who was not engaged in the
difficulty. The whole posse of State
constables, some eighteen in number,
fire upon the citizens with their Win
chesters.. The citizens return the fire.
The constables take to the woods. Two
citizens and one constable are dead,
another constabie mortally wounded.
That is~the story in brief.
It is but th'e natvi-al result of the in.
structioas given to his constables by
Gov. TillknaD when be armed them
with Winchester-rifies and pistols and
instructed them touse them> , and the
further encouragement given thorn
when he speedily pardoned one of
them who had been convicted and sen
tenced by due rocess of law.
When this news is sent the Gover
nor he speedily calls out the militia.
There is no need, and has not been
any need from the beginning, of order
ing out the' militia. Since the shoot
ing everything has been remarkably
quiet in Darlington under the circum
stances, and the Governor was so ad
vised. There has been no occasion for
ordering the militia to Darlington, nor
of putting Darlington and Florence
under martiallaw. But Gov. Tillman,
it seems, could hot let this opportunity
pass of tryings to make a big bluster
and tryinfth play the Andrew Jackson
act. Gen. PEarley advised him there
'was no need of sending troops to Dar
lington. Be has also seized the tele
graph omice and suppressed the trans
a'frank to say, however, that
<n our opinion the militia made a big
mistake in not responding to the call
made by the Governor as the comn
mankder in chief of the -army. It is a
mistake in any light in which it may
be,viewed. It is the first duty of the
soldier to obey orders when they come
-.-.from a superior officer, and if he is not
going to do that -he has no .business
being in the militia and has not.learned
the first duty of a soldier. He has no
right to enquire as to the cause or rea
son of.the order. We say, in our opin
ion, it was their duty to obey the order.
And we use the word duty advisedly.
Then besides that, it would have been
good policy to have done so. The action
of the military of Columbia andOCharles
ton and other towns in refusing to re
spond to the order of Gov. Tillman is
calculatedonly to arouse and keep
alive bad feeling in this State and give
theSpoliticians and demagogues a lever
with which to go before the people of
the country. And Gov. Tillman is
1sure to make capital of it. There would
have been no need of their going to
Darlington, but there would have been
no harm in it, and such action on their
part would have done much toward
quieting the excitement. In our opin
ion it was a big mistake.
We have no sympathy with the spy
system, nor the men who engage in
the business. Neither do we think
the Dispensary a wise or a good law.
Yet there is nothing to be gained in
the direction of peace and good order
by the action of the military in this
case. It sets up a bad precedent. If
the military are to disobey orders in
this case because some of them are not
in sympathy with the commander-in
chief why can they not do it in any
It seems to us that of late, the citi
zens ot Golumbia can always becou'nted
on to do the wrong thing just at the
right time to please 1thbeir opponents.
There are certain leaders there who
seem to have forgotten that there are
any other people in the State outside of
Columbia. The question f.r thbe militia
to have decided was not one of Tillmain
or anti-Tillmnan, nor yet one of Dispen
sary or anti-Dispensary, but it was a
question of duty as soldiers who are
pledged to uphold the law of the State
sd maintain the peace. In this case
they should have shown themselves
men, and risen above partisan polities.,
If Gov. Tillman attempted to make
political capital out of it, they should
have given him no opportunity to
make it at their expense.
It appears to us from what we have
been able to see and hear of the whole
affair that the action of Gov. Tillmnan
in the premiisesbhas been more in the
shape of a huge farce than anything
else, yet with that the militia had no
thing to do. By virtue of his office he
is commander of the military, and it
was the duty of the milhtary to obey
his orders, or they had no business!

We have come upon perilous times. It
is surely time for men to keep their rea

heads and really conservative men to
come to the front. It is time for the
people to be rid of extremists and fanat
ics. There is nothing to be gained by
all this sort of stuff. It is time to be
rid of men who are continually stir
ring up strife and bitterness by what
ever name or faction called.
The spy system withWinchesters and
pistols must go. If it is necessary to

Only that the Supreme Court had
rendered its decision on this question
long ago. Surely the court has had
time enough to reach a conclusion. If
that decision would only come much
of this trouble would be saved. Does
not the court see the necessity of decid
itg this thing? How long yet will we
have to wait?
PEACE ONCE MORE.
The war seems to be about over and
peace once more reigns. The militia
did not fire a gun and no one was
hurt. That is a pleasant kind of war
to go to.
Some of the troops have already left
Columbia and gone to their homes and
the others are exnected to be called off
soon. There was no need of ever or
dering them out and if Columbia
troops and the others first ordered had
obeyed the general order would never
have been issued. It was only done to
test the whole militia and to find out
what action would be taken.
The constablesall seem to be safe and
it turns out that only one was really
We are glad that the trouble seems
to be about over and that no one was
killed in the army and there was no
necessity for a battle.
We have taxed our columns to the
utmost this week to give the story of

our readers will not see a daily paper
and will want to know what was done

Yesterday's papers and the news we

quiet and peaceful.

everything peaceful and quiet..
Gov. Tiliman is rather severe, we
think, on the Newberry Rifles, though
we regret very much they did not re
main in Columbia, because we feel that
it was their duty to have done so. We
cannot but feel that. they received bad
counsel when they were advised to
turn over their guns and return home.
The whole thing is to be deplored,
but the law should be upheld and
obeyed, for in no other way can we feel
secure in our lives or liberties. If we
sometimes get bad laws let us repeal
them but not undertake to override
Mayor Dorgan, of Darlington, on
MIonday issued an address to the people
saying that the trouble was that Gov.
Tillman seemed to think that his con
stables enjoyeri liberties andI privileges
that private citizens did not. That the
only object of the posse was to appre
hend and arrest the constables who had
shot down private citizens. That there
had been no disorder in Darlington.
That the people of Darlington are not
lynchers but that when any body of
armed men come into their community
and shoot down innocent citizens tbey
McLendon, who was thought to have
been mortally wounded, it appears, was
not much hurt, and under disguise was

Senator Irby also had a say from
Washington and advised the assem
bling of the Legislature.
Gov. Tillman has given out s'everal
interviews,which we would like to give,
but our space is unequal to the task.
Iht should be remembered in consid
ering the awful tragedy at Darlington
tht he whole disturbance was started
byaspy interfering with a personal
difficulty in no way connected with
teDispensary law. In response to
some words the constable drew his
pistol, and standing with a man in
front of him, shot over the shoulder
and killed instantly one of the best citi
zens of the State, who was totally un
armed and was in no way violating the
law or interfering with the spies. Then
-the whole of them opened fire and fled
to the Woods. But four men are killed.
The spy who started the shooting has
paid the penalty with his life, but inno
cen t men have aho been killed. It is
surely time to call a halt. It was no
part of their duty, even as nefarious as
it is, to interfere with personal difficul
ties. It is no wonder that the people
of Darlington are indignant. They
have a right to be. But this- is a time
for level heads to come to the front and
rid this people of the causes which lead
to such results.
There has been no fighting or gunt
shooting in Columbia. Everything
has been remarkably quiet there though
the city has been flooded with troops.
Gov. Tillman seems to be the only
frightened man. Hestays at the man
sion and has it guarded with troops.
In Darlington everything has also been
quiet. Only posses were organized to (
pursue the fleeing murderers. No in-(
surrection or rebellion about that. Let1
every body continue to keep cool and at
Gov. Tilimnan seemed to pay no at
tention to Gen. Farley. Gen. Parley

Gov. Northen tendered to Congress
man Crisp, Speaker of the Houae, the
position of United States Senator to
succeed Senator Coq uitt,deceased, but
the Speaker has declined. While Mr.
Crisp would be a good man to have in
the Senate, it would have been a mis
fortune for him to have retired from
the House at this time. He has done
right to decline and we hope Georgia
will elect him for the full terni. The
election crnes on in z895, and he will

The State Board of Canvassers has
decided the contested election case from
the first district and the certificate of
election has been given to Judge Izlar,
and the official majority is declared to
be 180. The Board has done well. Dr.
Stokes will have to try again in the
new district that was made especially
for his b-nefit. If he fails there possi
bly the Legislature can be induced to
make him still another special district.
The raiding and breaking up of the
Dispensary at Florence was all wrong.
That is not the way to be rid of the bad
law. We are glad for the good name
of Colutnbia that such act as was
threatened was not carried out in re
gard to the State Dispensary.
The County campaign is to open
early this year. Since 1,80, however,
there has been no "off year" in politics
in South Carolina. But then these are
times of reform.
*Gov. Nortlien has appointed Hon.
Patrick Walsh, of the Augusta Chron
icle, as the successor of Mr. ('colquitt in
the United Ssates Senate, and he has
accepted. We congratulate Mr. Walsh.
SUNDAY AT THE CAPITAL.
A i)AY FULL OE EXCITIN' AND
The Gathering of the Go;ornor's Hot
and the Preparations for the Invaiton 1
of the Pee-Dee Country-The Tele

COLUMBIA, April 1.-The Sabbath 1
day, the third day of upheaval in South
Carolina, dawned brightly this morn- t
ing, and when the sun came out its
rays fell upon many rifles, which glis
tened brightly. They were upon the
shoulders of armed militiamen who
stood guard about the State Capitol.
This day here has so far been moret
thrilling perhaps in every sense of the
word than any preceding. The tele-t
graph offices have been seized by armed,
military forces, and soldiers are in pos-i
session of the offiews. Nothing but
personal or commercial messages can be
bandled by the compa~nies. In additionr
to this Governor TiI'mnan has made a I
speech in the open air in the grounds
af the Executive mansion, standing out
in front of the marnsion with his wool
bat in his hand, which was addressed

The entire grounds about the man-r
sion were guarded by the members of
the Edgefield Hussars, the Governor's
old company. Never before have I
seen the Governor at such a white heat,
though he appeared cool and acted with
deliberation. The words that fell fromr
his lips were of such a character as to
blanch the face of every man who
stood in the ranks. He said things thate
could hardly have been harsber. Capt.
Bateman at the end could scarcely
trust himself to speak, and when he didy
be hesitated and his voice was like a
whisper. Before the Governor had
finished one young man stood back,e
unbuckled his belt and dashed hist
accoutrements at the feet of the Gov
ernor, walking away with folded arms,e
Quickly one other followed. Then four
others, and in quick succession then all

to desist until the (;overntr had

(ol. Wilie Jones also endeavored to
keep the mon in line, and as their
bayonets would strike the ground at.
the feet of Tillman the Colonel would
remark, "Men, don't do that."
Governor Tillman turned to the
Captaiu of the company and said:
"Capt Haternan, if these gentlemen
don't realize and understand the situa

because I doni't want any soldier who

The boys were then marched out and

declared themselves disbanded.
When Jack calls on Miss Eleanor,
He always brings her plenty
Of flowers and chocolate bonbons,which
Most charm the maid of twenty.
And though Sir Jack has skinny arms,
And legs as thin as pheasants',
How could one blame Miss Eleanor,
Who much admires his presents?
No woman has any real admiration
for a man's presence unless the man has
a good phya'qi ne-legs and arms well
filled out. You can't be "well-look
ing'" if you suffer from any of the
disseases caused by a disordered liver or
impure blood-dvspepsia, biliousness,
and scrofulous affections. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery is a medi
cine that cures these cases. It's the
or.ly remedy that's guaranteed to bene
fit or cure, in every case, or the money
refunded. Medical science stamps it
"absolutely potent" as a blood-cleanser,
strength-restorer, and flesh-builder.
The worst Nasal Catarrh, no matter
of how long standing, is permanently
cured by Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy.
