It is very comfortable and
restful at home to- be able to
occupy an, easy chair. In the
V; churches lots pf Christians are
. just occupying the easy chair.
They keep up a constant move
'A m'pnt, but.it is the movement of a
rocking chair Christianity. It
Pl makes no advance ; it is just for
H ward and backward over the same
lines. Some rock more rapidly
x than others ; they are just rocking

"Peace and Unity.'
When that Thirteen's March
convention met it was loudly
proclaimed that their mission
was of "peace and unity," and that
it would be their aim and desire
to allay strife and bitterness in
theD emocratic ranks. Personalise!
and abuse in the campaign were
loudly condemned, and one to
read the declarations of this body
would think "that eafoh and every
delegate was a budding angel of
harmony and. love, had a pair of
wings sprouting behind hrs arms.
J&ut even before tais convention
adjourned the eleven foot was
shown and the hypocrisy of their
professions made transparent,
Orr s tarted a tirade of abuse
against Tillman, that Sheppard
took np in a'little speech he made
at Greenville behind the Governor's
back. Their organs used gall for
... ink, and never was a more violent
and personal campaign ever waged
in jany''State-then this defeated
faction of old sore-head politicians
made against the present adminis
tration. But they soon found
that no inroads were being made
in ' the unbroken phalanx of the
honest Reformers, and so far
from'weakening Tillman that his
cause was strengthened, and the
prospect was that their ring bound
ticket would not carry a single
County in the State.
It was then determined to throw
off the mask of "peace and unity"
and see what could be done by an
attempt at bulldozing and
terrorizing the candidates them
selves. Mr. Youmans, a gentleman
noted for ?his caustic, tongue an$
violent * was selected to,
?tefajttW ^ox??tber1. force* ^Governor |
?i^tik&w^ptftittlt difficulty ? with
i?jpSr.^'^bat Mr. Youmafis" caine,
upon the stand at Kingstree armed
with a bludgeon and pistol has
been published and never denied.
Tillman is not an opposing candi
date toYoumans, and it would
hav? been trespassing upon the
territory of the other aspirants to
have. noticed him ; and as the
Governor had twice before'met
J and replied to Mr. Youmans' old
[ tirade against his administration,
I he very properly left him in the
hands of Messrs. McLaurin and
The ring organs at once seized
upon this fact to hold Gov.'Till
man up in the light of a coward,
andar? vainly trying to make
capital out of a very proper and
wise act on the part of the head of
the Reform ticket and our State.
There is not .a' braver man in
South Carolina than B. R. Till
man, and if any one doubts this
! fact he can test his courage. But
Governor Tillman well knows,
as does every one else, that at the
first passage of arms upon, the
speakers' stand at one of these
joint debates that a bloody and
disgraceful riot is sure to ensue,
which will cost the lives of good
men and broaden still further the
breach between the rival factions
in our State ; and the life of one
good man, perhaps the head of a
dependent family, is of far,, more
.importance than all the offices in
It is the desire and th? intention
of the people's candidates to use
everv effort in their power to
conduct the campaign . npon a
high plane, to discuss the political
issues intelligently and courteously
?and do all that conservative and
brave men can to avoid a personal
?difficulty. The people of South
I Carolina know that there is not a
[craven upon the Reform ticket,
I and the opposition will also find
this fact out if they are determined
to press a difficult} , and nothing
else will satisfy them. But if it
does come, the blame will rest
where it rightfully belongs, as was
shown by those jubilant and
'taunting editorials in the ring
organs after the Kingstree de
