Friday, Dec. 12, 1890.
The Alliance-democratic gov
ernor of South Carolina, Tillman,
made use of the following remark
able words in his inaugural address:
** When it is clearly shown in
this manner that our colored voters
are no longer imbued with the re
publican idea the vexed negro
problem will be solved, and the
fear of a return of negro domina
tion will disturb us no more.
Can I not appeal to the magna
nimity of the dominant race; can
I not plead in your behalf. We
white men of South Carolina
stand ready and willing to listen
kindly to all just rights and safe
privileges to these colored people,
and guarantee them fair treatment
at our hands.
We whites have absolute control
of the state government, and we in*
tend to retain it The intelligent
exercise of the right of suffrage, at
once the highest privilege and most
sacred duty of the citizen, is beyond
the capacity of the vast majority
of colored men. We deny that all
men are created equal. It is not
true now, and it was not true when
Jefferson wrote it But we cannot
deny that it is our duty as the
governing power in South Carolina
to insure to every indvidual, black
and white, the right to life, liberty
and the pursuit of happiness.”
’• The main object of a constitution
is supposed to be to limit the pow
er of dominant parties, but each
considerations do not seem to af
fect the southern statesmen. * It
shows a very peculiar state of af
fairs when any man, and especially
the chief executive of a state,
utter wsh statement* There
is certainly need of a great reform
in the South, but the immediate
results of the late election don’t
indicate any improvement Patri
otism, political honesty and re
spect for the l&w must be at a very
low ebb in South Carolina.
It looks to the Sentinel as
though the leaders of the Farmers’
Alliance had an excellent oppor
tunity just now to show whether
or not they have the real interest
of the people at heart While
these men last winter were howling
for legislation Gov. Mellette was
putting forth every effort to re
lieve the wants of the destitute
farmers of the state. Some of his
sets may not have been judicious,
all must admit that his work was
faithfully done and that hundreds
of families received aid from the
result of his labors. This year the
call for help is again heard. Will
«it reach the ears of those inde
pendent leaders who have made
their friendship for the poor,
down-trodden farmer so conspicu-
oub? Loucks promises impossible
things as the result of legislation.
Melletto secured clothing and
food for the destitute. One is a
demagogue, the other is a man.
Take your choice.
While the year 1890 has been a
prosperous one in many parts of
state, there are sections where the
extreme drouth destroyed the grow
ing grain. The people in these af
flicted sections have worked and
struggled on in good faith, but in
spite of all their efforts, they find
themselves almost destitute at the
beginning of a winter, which it is
generally believed will be a severe
one. There is but one solution of
the serious problem before them.
They must have assistance from
some source. From present re
ports it would seem that the pros-
perous sections of the state could
relieve the wants of their uufor
* • *
innate neighbors, and' if that be
true, the efforts to secure aid
should be confined within the bor
ders of the state. 7 1
The scandal which has clouded
the fair name of Parnell has cast
a still greater cloud over the un
happy country whose able and
fearless champion be Inis so long
been. Parnell has been requested
to resign the leadership of the
Irish parliamentary party, but so
far has refused to consider any
snch proposition. As a result the
Irish forces are divided and the
prospects for attaining Home Rule
are fading from Bight Gladstone
refuses to work longer with Par
nell and it seems as though the
fondest hopes of the Irish people
were shattered. Tfiat a light may
penetrate this darkness is the ear
nest wish of every lover of liberty
and justice.
Cummings, of the Ruralist, gives
WardaU and other independent
leaders a liberal roast in the last
issue of the Ruralist,dor going off
to Florida without attending to fi
nancial matters connected with the
paper. Cummings was elected as
a delegate but gave up tne trip
rather than have the paper closed
up. There will be a lively time
when the boys got home for the

Will the members of the State
Farmer’s Alliance take it kindly if
the Journal suggests that while
they are fixing prices, they run
down the railroad fares fifty per
cent lower, and run up the price
of a bushel of wheat or flax or corn
say a hundred per cent higher?
Why not? Fiat, (liberally inter
preted) so said, so done; fix it so
and have it so. Make the law and
let her rip.—Sioux Falls JournaL
Jay Gould has declared that no
more railroads shall be btiiltin the
United (States for the next two
years and seems to expect that b»
word will be law in the matter.
He will find, however, that the
west will keep right on develdjiug
in spite of him and that railroads
are needed and will be built in the
western states. Gould is a great
man but he will meet with "more
opposition than he anticipates.
They are having great times
down at Mitchell over on election
contest The contestant, who is an
independent by the name of Pease,
stands ip with the court, and some
very disgraceful scenes are report
ed. It is a glorious sight in this
free land to see a judge take part
and become a party to an assault
and battery case in his own conrt
room but that is the kind of a judge
they have at Mitchell,
Bito. Lyon, of the Watertown
Public Opinion, has not yet got
the Indian amendment business
straightened out in his own mind
and says that people voted for the
chance when they intended to vote
against it What wonder that a
majority voted against it when
such men as Bra Lyon cannot
comprehend the issue Get this
matter straight before making any
further explanation.

The cowboys and Indians had a
little skirmish in the Southwest
part of the state a few days ago
and as a consequence four good

It is proposed in the new appor
tionment to add considerably to
the membership of congress. Have
we not evils enough now without
any such new aggravation. The
lower house of congress is so large

transact any business and the more
we get the worse off we shall be.
Huron had a couple of wife
beaters but she hasn’t now. In

they only waited for the first train.
The better class of people do not

taken but they are very glad the

The Democrats in the senate
are modest. They only want to
speak sixteen weeks during the
present session and have asked for
that amount of time. As the the
session only lasts fourteen weeks
and the republicans want a little

.to disappointment
The Wisconsin State Grange re

The Indians h»ve been prophe
sying an early .winter and are

considered a sure forerunner of
heavy snow and rain falls.

Congressman PicklEr delivered
an address before the meeting of
the National Alliance at Ocala,
Florida, last week on the sub
treasury bill. He considers it the
key to the financial situation, and
believes that its passage is imper
atively demanded by the present
situation. His remarks were well
received by the delegates present
Ignatius Donnelly wants to be
president of the 1 Minnesota Sttfte
Alliance. As the Minnesota Alli
ance, like its Dakota counterpart,
is strictly a political organization,
the honors ought to go either to
Donnelly or to Bill Erwin. Both
are good political farmers.
Pickler received about 300
more votes in the state than did
his colleague Gamble. A pretty
even race in a total of 77,000 votes
in the state.
The official count gives Pierre a
majority of 7,626. There’s only

is to pay your bets and make the
