the "Gravity of tlic Situation" Appalling?The
Aggressor Shifts the Ground of
Attack from his First Standpoint?The I
Public to be the Judges of the Situation.
Messy*. Editors: In your reply toj
my article in your issue of 16th ult.
you endeavored to show lliat the procrrdimjs
of the March convention were
appalling. You then said: "The convention
nominates a man for Governor,
rehiikes the Democratic organization
and declares that the candidate
for Governor v.*iil be put in office for
the purpose of purifying the party,
thus implying corruption in the party."
Iji my reply to this in your issue 30th
ult. my protest that the foregoing"
statement of the proceedings of the
convention did not show such facts as
to warrant you in the use of "that
word appalling" appears to have beon
sufficiently effective to cause you incontinently
to change your base. Since
in the issue i?0th ult. you assert that
you intended to characterize as appalling
not the ' 'proceedings," but "'the
gravity of the .yitooHoa caused by the
proceedings," etc. Very well. I score
victory, no one for myself, and pro- i
ceed to reconnoitre your uew position.
T ni II< whflf. lhi.< "OTMVltV of tilt* I
situation" is. Is it not in one word, j
the coiulidature of Cupt. Tillman for I
the nomination for Governor by the
.State Democratic Conventian next
August, or when convened, together
with the arrangement of the campaign
machinery, or organization, if you
prefer the word, requisite to systematize
his own, and his supporters'efforts
for success? The tendency, we may
say the design of this is, of course,
to cause a general, perhaps, a lively
interest in the selection of delegates
x +]?of H'll)
IU lllC WilV MJkVlSJUiJ Uiat )MU
be ordered later to send delegates to
the State Convention. This precipitating
a lively contest in our own lines,
deserves commendation, as being1 a
manly way of ascertaining the
choice of the majority. If, in your
judgement, this situation is appalling,
then, of course, you would be puzzled
to fall on jl term that would litlv express
your feelings 111 the ease of its success.
But should Capt. Tillman, in
this way, win a majority of the delegates
to the State Convention, assuredly,
in that event, you would not
regard' his nomination for Gavernor
by that body as appalling? It would
be manifestly absurd and disloyal to
the party to do so. As the whole includes
all its parts, I conclude you are
ready to agree with me that you inconsiderately
"employed "that word appalling."
I confidently leave the
decision of the issue between us to
an intelligent public but in doing so
I desire to thank you for ottering the
challenge and the opportunity to call
attention to the astounding and almost
unanimous attack of the politicians
and the State press on the peaceful
assembling of democrats in the late
convention. "They will split the
party;'' "theyhave split the party,"
are some of the rallying cries against
the Tillmanites. Do they believe any
such balderdash? Is not this the milk
in the cocoa nut? They see the hand
writing on the wall, portending the
downfall of the wire-pullers and slateBiakcr.s.
That is the true issue the
eawse of all this flutter and isbest,
illustrated and forcibly brought to our
impartial examination aud apprehension
by contrasting "Tillmania" socalled/
with the present conventionninii
nf nommatinsr for State, congress
I-?- ~ w . x
ional au<I some of the judicial officers,
and wlik-ii from lack of a better name
I dub ring-mania.
Take ring-mania first. There is to
be a. State Convention for the purpose,
we will suppose, of nominating' candidates
for the State offices. Aspirants
for the positions, if there be any, fail
to declare publicly before the people
their laudable ambition. The clnb?
assemble to elect delegates to the
County Conventions- The members,
with minds ivot fixed by previous agitation,
blindly select uniust rooted delegates.
The County Conventions composed
of each delegates, assemble.
Here a select few may have an inkling
of what is coming, and some of the
handiwork of the wire-pullers dimly
discloses itself. Then follow* the
State Convention composed of material
plastic to the manipulations of the experts,
who, having previously arranged
the slate, readily secure the
confirmation of their own appointees
The same is true in pari of congressional
and judicial conventions.
Apathy and unrest arc the consequen
ces, and, but for race-aiiegiancc ana
the single issue, the preservation of
honest government, the party well
advanced in the rrocess of disintegration.
Tillmania, so called, on the other
hand invites aspirants to office, to deeiare
themselves, go before '.he people
ujkI discuss public questions, and then
arcmse public interest, increase the
political knowledge of the people, and
ascertain and confirm the choice of
majority* A strengthened party is the
coisscquonee.
Candidly scrutinize "Tillmania" and
"King-mama." wnicn tne irne JL?emooracy?
W.bicii the ''Ring?"
Arc the politicians afraid of the people?
Why do .nojt ihose opposed to
Tillman hold a State Convention and
announce their choice for Governor?
It is no answer to say, that it would violate
Democratic methods. The Tillmanites
did not hold a State Democratic
Convention, but a State Convention
composed of Democrats.
The Antis may do the same, and so
far from this being a violation of
Democratic methods, it is a true Democratic
way cf bringing candidates
before the State nominating convention,
which should be merely the organ
to give authoritative expression of the
wishes of the people and not their
dictatorial master that says: Do this!
and it is done.
Yon correctly onote me as saying:]
You denounce as unwise the ignoring
of the regular Democratic machinery
in organizing campaign eluhs. In this,
I fully concur. Such action is not the
legitimate result of the proceedings of
tne convention, and manifestly tends
to subvert the party supremacy."
[ freely reiterate the foregoing, hut
cannot agree tor it to be confounded
with "the ordering of a 'campaign
meeting' in different parts of the
State under the control )f an organization
different from the Democratic
party and over which the Democratic
party h i? no control,"* for the latter is
i Incr?i?m11? ;i!'d nronar result of those
" L i
proceedings and eminently consistent
with Tillman'sm, which you will bear
in mind, denies (lie management of the
Democratic organization To be in accord
with Democratic method?; but
on the contrary assorts it to be in

CEDAR CREEK. | CJ
April 28. It has been a long time l'o
since I have seen a niece in your paper ^
from Cedar Cieek. So I shall ask ^
space in it for a few lines. i;
The farmers of this community are bi
through planting their cotton crop and tr
some are done planting corn. Small
grain is not doing much for the time
of the year. I think spring oats will w
make a full crop if we have good rains m
in May.
i * tb
We are having a great deal of sick- ^
liess in this neighborhood at present, tb
Mr. Frank Brown, of this section, lost It
1.:. K*?l~ I?ef Wa/lnserlnv T*6 S1
Lli9 illUC iiUAlll iaoi v? *.v. ^
remains were interred in the church- w
yard at Pine Grove. fii
We hare learned that our honorable ^
Senator Maj. 7. W. Woodward, has ^
declined to m?ke a speech. So I think w
Cedar Creek Wi 'et Mr. Tillman make th
his speech at Ridgeway and go on his tli
way rejoicing, and some day in the
near future perhaps we may have the ^
honor of having Maj. Woodward or 6C
General John Uratton placed before St
the good people of South Carolina as ^
a candidate for Governor. Then we
will extend an invitation Lu Maj. jn
Woodward, and we will all go to hear cc
him and take our wives and children ?*(
rc
with us. Sol say, hurrah for Maj. ju{
Woodward. ar

lotte, where he had been to hear the ^
great evangelist, Sam Jones. th
The residence of Mr. S. R. John- w
ston narrowly escaped destruction by
lire last Monday about noon. The ?
root of the kitchen, which building is jn
only a few feel from the dwelling, Tl
caught from a epark, and the fire had f*1
made considerable headway when dis- ^
covered. There was no one at home w
at the time except Sirs. Johnston and en
her two daughters, but thei*- presence
of mind and quick work saved the
dwelling.
The stockholders of the canning
factory held a meeting last Monday
night. The chairman stated that sev- A]

last meeting. The committee, ap.?Awt/\nc

appointed to further negotiate in re- je

April 29. Farmers are through ;
planting cotton here and it is coming
up pretty in places. The fruit crop is
a failure here. We are needing rain to(
badly.
Justice Bookman has been right
busy here lately keeping the peace in i
his district. w
We were favored with an excellent ai
sermon on last Sunday at Crooked
Run by Ilev. A. McA. Pitt-man. We c
heard some of our grand old hymns M
most beautifully rendered by their ?
ftvornnisf.. "MY-. i i. W. "Bl'OOks. As WC
listened to this sweet music our souls A
were enraptured and we forgot for a ?
time the strife and turmoil of this life, to
Miss Lula Trapp, who has been Pj1
teaching school near Rock City, has
returned home.
Miss Ella Doty and Miss Lucy "White ?
were visiting relatives here a few days
ago. I
Mr. C. E. Lightuer, of Marion, is up Ti

It seenn> to be fan for the farmer ?
boys fo go to the city. I will relate S'
one incident of three farmer bovs?

account of the Farmers' Alliance, and le
was to take Scale along with him for

gave out the notion ut going, being Cc

i o'clock the clouds seemed to vanish
i away. Tube said he wanted to go, o'

j trip yet to-day, you know my mule
! can trot. Yes, said Scale, tint's all so, ^
' we will go then. Just about that titae in
I Iiedfoot came up and said it was too
i liite. its no iii-e to run your mule to _
I death to-day. Let's g-o together and
! stay all night, we may get there time ^
; enough lor the Alliance. Weli, Tube w
said, I don't care just as Scale tavs.
j They all agreed to go in the wagon, di
; and went over to Redfoot's house and
j got ready to go. The distance was

ring on with their fun, the road
emed not so long,, and reached the
ty about 3 o'clock. Tobe's and Redot's
mules did not trot very fast,
tnr ivflfthinor the f.ifv. Tobc and
:ale concluded to go and see the;
mal, .vlrich they had never seen, j
bey wanted Redfoot to go with them, j
at he would not. He seemed to be:
ying to be a merchant. He said that,'
; had to go and do his trading (as |
c idea was to get home by 11 o'clock |
e next day.) but Tobe and Scale i
ent on and enjoyed their trip very i
uch. After seeing several cars and J
.ilroad crosses in different forms,!
ev next came to the canal. Where !
iey first saw it was at the bridge of;
ic new railroad through Lexington, j
was a wonderful thing for Tobc and I
id Scale to sec. Then marching up i
c vjuuui iijc) niV/ig iuu u tuno
ere working, wearing stripes. The j
*st guard thai they came to was Mr. j
ickle. Jle was very kind to them. I
ime seemed to pass loo fast for Tobe j
id Scale, everything was new; it!
as night before they knew it. When !
,ey left to go back to the city, 0:11
ieir way they went through the j
aveyartl field." I tell you Tobe and
:ale never saw as many graves in
,eir lives. They seemed to be a little
eared. After they reached Main
:reet tbey met with Redfoot, and he
id met with his friend, Sam face and
ip.
After supper there was to be preach2f
in the city. They were going, but j
mid not find the way, marching J
>wn the street the crowd of five in a j
?w was a show. After a few min- j
es a little flat-nosed uegro saw them i
id said that there was a balloon to j
) up jus? fceloTv the State House, j
he five all anxious to see such a!
ing, wanted to go. The negro said j
at he would like to take the crowd j
>wn in the hack, but all were in the j
ibit of walking in such $ p&ce. So i
ey took to their feet. jjTp galloon |
ent up, but they heard a barm some j
stance off. Ts'be said let's go, right j
>wn in tha centre of the street. |
fter finding that it was all for noth- j
g, they ali sat down befGre' a store. I
!icre was but one clerk in it that!
uc. They all said that he must have j
icomc sceareol and closed quickly, j
lien they all marched back to the lot!
here they stayed all night. That j
tc?ed the trip for ike farmer boys.
