W. W. B. GALLAHKR. Editor. Ohetrlootown.JefferoonCounty, WeotTa. May >-3. t&93. The Farmers’ Alliance controlled the £outb Carolina Democratic Convention last Thursday ; and the resolutions adopted embody the Ocala platform, declared that Grover Cleveland d<»e* not represent the principles of Democracy *nd protests against his nomination. A resolution denouncing the third party was killed. The Advocate wants to know why we don’t expose the fallacies of its scheme. We are satisfied to call attention to the self evident fact that the said schemes are wrong in principle and contrary to the fun damental doctrines ol Democracy. This being the case, there is no need to discusa their expediency for the benefit of I>emo cratic readers. Congressman Allen, of Mississippi, doesn't approve of members of Congress having extravagant funerals at public ex pense. His constituents are with him on this point. They even go so far as to say that they will be pleased to bear hie fuuer al expenses. But John doesu t want his to be the first funeral under the reformed sys tem. He wants some other statesman to set the example—some oue on the other side of the House, perhaps. When 84 Democrats and 77 Republicans bowed down to this idol of gold, the nine incorruptible men of the people s party stood firm to the last. So says the Avneonformiet and the .It/' vocate, which would malign its owu grand mother if the Xo*>coa/omut set the example, saya so too. While uone of these corrupti ble congressmen is mentioned by name, it must not be forgotteu that Hon. Wm. L. Wilson is one of the Democrats who (ac cording to these jonrnals) “had sold out to British gold.’’ This pretense of an issue between the Re publican and Democratic parties upon the tariff question is too transparent to deceive anybody.—Topeka Advocate. The Farmer't Advocate publishes the foregoing paragraph. It is amazing that our neighbor should expect to mislead its intelligent constituency with such rot—but not more so than that a paper which says such things should have the gall to oiler suggestions—not to speak of its "demands to the Democratic party of Joffersou county and West Virginia. It is a bit distressing to West Virginia Re publican* to discover that Hon. B. El kins i* ineligible for the governorship,—a citixenship of five years being an essential of eligibility; aud according to Mr. El kins’ statement he has been a citizen of West Virginia less than four years. No doubt he is heartily glad of it; but the en durance, with fortitude, of such a disap pointment will require more grace than the managers of the machine, who had large expectations, possess or are likely to have bestowed upon them. The Cleveland men had a good majority in the Virginia Democratic Convention at Richmond last Thursday ; but for the sake of harmony a compromise was effected be tween the Cleveland ami Hill factions, by which the delegates at-large to Chicago were divided between them, and the dele gation was not instructed. The delegates at-large selected by the convention are; Hons. John Goode and Basil B. Gordon, Senator Daniel and Wolford Corbin—the first two for, and the last two against, Cleve land. The delegates are about equally di vided for and against Cleveland. Maj. Holmes Conrad, of Winchester, and R. C. Kent were nominated for electors-at-large and Hon. A. Moore, Jr., of Berryvilte for the Congressional District elector. B. B. Gordon was elected chairman of the State committee. “There was a slight difference in the de tails of the Mills aud M- Kiuley bills, says the Topeka Acfencwfc,—aud the Farmtri Advocat* copies the article—“but so far a* either principle or results are actually con cerned, that difference is not material.”— That is to say, these two Adrocatet dou'l care whether taxes are high or low—wheth er commtrce is restricted or eularged— whether or not the markets of the world are opened to the product of American farms They say the whole tariff system is a fraud, bat so loug as the fraud exist* they dou’t care whether it is a big or little one. “The only tariff reform that is defensible is the entire abolition of the whole system,” say they; as if it were not worth while to mit igate any evil that cannot be entirely re moved. They will have reform in their own way or no reform at all. They repre sent the extreme of partisanship. The third party must be built up, no matter h>*w much the farmer, the alleged beneficiary, sufl'er bv the process. It’s a case of “the public be d—d.” Our friend of the Advocate stands by the quotations that we made from his columns last week, and unblushingly proclaims him self the enemy of the Democratic party— the party *f the con-titutim and of free gov ernment—the party that has stood for years between the people aud those who would rob them of the right of self government— the party that is uow trying to relieve them of the burdens of unnecessary taxation. He wants the solid South broken—he wants the Democratic party defeated in November next. If the Force bill is enacted there can be no free coinage of silver—there can be no reduction of taxation—no reduction of expenditures by the federal government nothing but increased burdens on the peo ple, deputy marshals at the polls, and negro rule id thetkiuth; but what are these thing* to him, so the People’s party has a chance to make a little uoise, wield a little tempo rary influence, get a few offices? Maybe he would not refuse an office himself if the ap pointing power, in West Virginia, should fall into the bands of a political associate. If to—in the words of a wicked “plutocrat” —the public be d—d.” Result of pemocratic Precinct Meetings on Saturday., CIURLES-TO H'.Y. Frank Beckwith, Chairman ; R. A. Alexan- ; der, Secretary.

Church (North), in session at Omaha, the Commit tee on the State of the Church brought in a report calling upon the government, the State officials, the M. E. Church, and all good citizens “to arise in their might and abolish the indignities and outrages that were put upon the colored people and all white people who love to work for the ele vation of the colored race in the Southern States." The resolution declared that the colored people were treated shamefully on the railway trains and at the hotels and in every way. They were shot down like dogs aud the law of land was trampled under foot by the people who despised the colored race. The resolution was the signal for tremendous cheering. Dr. Queat, Dr. i ayue aim otner maae Tenement speeuueo calling upon the Methodist church to stand firmly for the rights of the colored race.— Dr. Myley advised the conference to be moderate in language employed. “We are. not perfect ourselves, brethren, except in words” said Dr. Myley. The report was adopted by a rising vote, every delegate in the conference risiug to his feet. This outburst doubtless had reference to the rather frequent lynchings in the South ern States within the past few months. We do not attempt to defend or excuse these lawless proceedings; but they aro crime* against the communities in which they oc cur, not against the colored race or the wretches thus made to suffer for their out rages. Law-abiding people ought to unite in condemning lvuch-law, but sympathy with negro ravishers, for whom no punish ment is too harsh or too swift, is worse than misplaced. To a statement that "Stonewall” Jackson would never travel nor fight on Sunday, the Oxford, Maine Advertiser replies: “We think the surviving members of the old Tenth Maiue regiment can recall to memory Sunday, the 25th day of May, 1S62, almost three decades, when old Stonewall traveled and fought on Sunday, and had our fearless and stalwart on the run from Winchester to Williamsport. How that rebel battery got the drop on us when a few miles from Win chester. and what a terrifying sound those scorching shells gave as they came whizzing through the air so near, and what a shower of knapsacks followed about that time, and with what sad hearts, we parted with pho tograph*, letter* and clothing from home, as we flung them away and passed on. I hat forced march was a trying ordeal to the men, and some of them carry the effects to this day.” Of course he fought on Sunday—Ma ua-sas, Kernstown, Port Republic, Win chester, et aft. The day following the above mentioned 25th day of May the old “Stone wall Brigade” drove the Federals through these Charles-Town streets and the Free Press office was reduced to ashes—a match having been applied by a FL'deral soldier before be tosk his everlasting flight. Thir ty-five year* to-morrow since The F. P. office was reduced to ashes. We hope no malicious contemporary will remark that the result of the ashes has been lye all these years. We’ll confess to our pen having sometimes been dipped in caustic. Langston, the negro ex-congre stnan from Virginia, is not so much enamoured of Pres ident Harrison as he used to be or as thous ands of the ignorant of his race are. At a recent negro Baptist Convention in Wash ington he expressed himself a* opposed to instructing delegates to Minneapolis to vote for Mr. Harrison. He also said that Mr. Harrison ha I been joked with too much al ready. and that a delegation of the conven tion should “tell him that the negro is out raged. assassinated, lynched all over the South, and a- the Executive of the nation > he is expected to see that these evils are remedied. Before I vote fer a mau,” said he, “he must give me the assurance that the negro will not be left. I have a daughter and a son in the South, and I want to know if Mr. Harri-ion intends to see that the law is enforced so that every citizen in the South will be protected.” Mr. Langston seems to have overlooked the fact that “the law is enforced" in the South, and in consequence thereof his own son, for a year or two, was protected by the walls of the Virginia pen itentiary from exposure to an outdoor at mosphere.

It is said now that Mr. Blaine has so far recovered his health that he recently at tended a dancing party and participated in the dance.

In the absence of information as to why the Nonconformist, frequently quoted by the Advocate with great approbation, is so named, we are forced to the conclusion that it is because of its evident disinclination to conform to the truth. 5r In all cases, where a mild but effective aperient is needed, Ayer’s Pills are the best They improve the appetite, restore healty action, promote digestion, and regulate ev ery function.
