\ THTOS. J. ADAMS,.EDITOR THURSDAY, ATRIL 27,1893. The Supreme Court of the United States has decided the rai hoad tax cases against the State. Next week we will publish the text of this decision in full. An extra session of Congress in September, so says vice-President Stevenson. In the next Congress-House the Democrats will have 220, the ' Bepublicans 127, and the Third partyiteB 8. Postmaster General Bissell says . Republican postmasters will be allowed to serve out their terms of ?j four years. The visible supply of cotton in the world is 3,808,183 bales. American crop of 1893 up to date is 6,156,254. ?W. L. Doughlas, the man who makeB the Douglas shoe is a candidate for Governor of Massachusetts. He is a Democrat. The increase in the phosphate industry in this State during the past few monthB has been mar vellous. The Columbia State of Monday said that the railroad cases would be decided on that day and ad versely to the State. Gov. Tillman says M. L. Donald son, president of the State Alliance, is a traitor to the Alli ance and the people. The gold reserve haB been trenched upon by Secretary Carlisle, but restored to its original status by purchases from bankers. President Cleveland has an - nounced that no more appoint ments will be made until the ap plicants had all gone home and gone to plowing. According to experiments at Clemson College the past year acid phosphate made better returns than any other fertilizer used and a number of kinds were experi mented with. It has been charged, and not contradicted, that all the railroads gave free passes to delegates who attended the Wire Workers' League which met in Columbia on the 9th-delegates from only 18 coun ties attended the Wiro Workers' League-?nrere1t>agaTene7" " There is talk in railroad circles 1 that Receiver Chamberlain of the ; South Carolina Railroad, is to be 1 made receiver of the Richmond 1 and Danville, which takes in half, .probably more than half the rail- . roads in the State.

The Legislature of the State of Tennessee has passed an act ap proved by the Governor, author- ( izing State banks to issue bills, ' money. The act requires a deposit ' of United States, State, or county 1 bonds and bills will be issued for f the bank on these securities not to 1 exceed 90 per cent, of their market value. The act limits the currency ] to be issued by the State for these banks to $25,000,000. Periodical 1 examinatious of these State banks, a redemption of the currency and other features of the national : banking law are adhered to. A bank must redeem its circulating notes on demand in gold or silver. ! No county bonds will be accept ed where the indebtedness of tho county exceeds 5 per cent, of the taxable property. The circulating medium is to be signed by the president and cashier of the bank. The act says: "The object sought by this legislature being to fur nish the citizens of this State'a safe, sound, and trustworthy cur rency, possessing sufficient elas &ity to meet the demands of mnuxacturing, farming, and busi ' interests and the exigencies o. ' times-a currency based on some o-,curities the stability and sufficiency of which no one can question or doubt, to be over-look ed, supervised, and guarded by the State's chief officer, for the benefit and protection of the public." Killing- Frosts. MEMPHIS, Tenn., April 23.-Spe cial telegrams last night to The Appeal-Avalanche, from West Tennessee and North Mississippi and Arkansas, state that the frost has killed the young cotton and strawberries pretty generally. The higher prices of cotton seed in duced the farmers to dispose of all ihey could spare, and it will be impossible for them to get enough fo replant. Gov. Tillman's Reasons. Cotton Plant. The report having been circula ted that-Gov. Tillman had asked President Cleveland to not ap point Mr. M. L. Donaldson to an office, several County Alliances passed resolutious asking Gov. Tillman to give his reasons for the action if the report were true. Below we give the resolutions passed by the Greenville County Alliance and Gov. Tillman's re ply as furnished The Cotton Plant: "Whereas, it has been stated in the public press that Gov. B. R. Tillman had written a letter to Pr?sident Cleveland in which he requested of the Presideat that certain eitizens of this State be not appointed to any Federal office at home and abroad;, and whereas, the name of the Hon. M. L. Donaldson, the President of the Farmers' State Alliance, is re ported to have been one of those blacklisted by Gov. Tillman. "Be it Resolved by tho Green ville County Alliance in regularly quarterly meeting assembled, that not having seen any denial of said alleged blacklist, we deem it but jnst to the honored President of the State Farmers' Alliance as well as to the order itself to take cognizance of the ma} ter and take such steps as are necessary to learn from Gov. Tillman himself whether the public statements as to the blacklist referred to founded on fact, or not. "Resolved, That a commitiee of three members of this County Alliance be appointed to com municate with Gov. Tillman and request that he return answar whether the newspaper reports of said blacklist be true, aud if true to furnish his reasons of given to President Cleveland for his action towards M. L. Donaldson, onr State President." Messrs. N. P. Whitmire, J. P. Ply 1er and J. H. Latiraer, Committee : Gentlemen-I have your letter with the enclosed resolution pas sed by the Greenville County Al liance at its last meeting: "To eommunicate with Gov. Tillman and requeet that he return answer, whether the newspaper reports of said blaok-list be true, and if true to furnish his reasons, as given to President Cleveland, for his action towards M. L. Donaldson, our State President" Similar communications have been Bent to me from the County Alliances of Pickens and of New berry, and I shall furnish this letter to The Cotton Plant as an answer to all : The effort appears J to be made to link Mr. Donaldaon/as acittizen of the Alliance, ?ndljpremise my answer by saying that'the Alliance has nothing to do with it, either directly or indirectly, except BO far as I felt justified in preven* ting its further betrayal. To answer your questions categorically, I did ask Mr. Cleveland not to ap point Mr. Donaldson to office. My reasons were these-and again they have no reference to Mr. Donaldson's private charactor but to hie public acts, and I dis claim any feeling of personal resentment or desire to injure him: Last spring when delegates were sleeted to the May State conven tion Mr. Donaldson was repudia ted by the Democracy of Green villa and he failed to be elected EI delegate either to his County sonvention or to State convention. He appealed to friends in other parts of the State to help him re trieve his failing political fortune, and a small caucus of leading Alliancemen from other counties went to work and had him elected member of the National Committee. It was presumed by the conven tion at least that he was in full sympathy with its opposition to Mr. Cleveland, and certainly he neither said nor voted for him. You are familiar with the instruc tions given our delegation to Chicago and our action under those instructions. We not only voted against Mr. Cleveland, but worked against him, with two excetpions. Judge then our sur prise on reaching Chicago to see Mr. Donaldson in open affiieation with the Cleveland leaders, striv ing with might and main to de feat the purpose ot the convention which had elected him on the Nations1. Committee. Again, when the State Alliance met shortly afterwards, to my suprise I saw him elected President of ths State Alliance. When I asked an explanation I was told that it was the only possible way to defeat the candidacy of an avowed "Third part}r man," and that Mr. Donaldson had pledged himself not to seek any office, but to devote his energiee-to building up the Alliance. I wasnot surprised however when two weeks later he entered the field as a candidate for Stale Senator from Greenville, feeling, I suppose, that the double endorsement of the State conven tion in May and the State Allaince in July, would reinstate him at home. But the people of Greenville wete true to themselves and he was not elected. It will thus be seen that Mr. Donaldson played false with the May convention by his action at Chicago, and broke his pledge, to the leading Alliancemen, nofto seek office. Now, in addition to that, when I remind you that Mr. Donaldson as Senator, was the means of in corporating in the railroad bill in '91 the two objectionable features which caused me to veto it you cannot be surprised at my action. It was upon his motion, at the suggestion as I was told of Bunch McBee, that the right of appeal to the courts was put in the bill. He also championed that feature of the bill which kept the election of Railroad Com missioner in the hands of the General Assembly, contrary to the March platform," thus showing his willingness to stifle the will of the people. All of these things taken together are sufficient as I take it, to warrent my opposing his appointment as a representa tive of the ''Refrom Party," or 'of the Alliance. Self-interest rather than patriotism appears to have governed his actions, and as the Alliance has been sidetracked in nearly ever ly other State by self-seekers, and has been seriously injured in this State from the same cause I could not con scientiously stand silent without prostesiing against his being re warded for treachery to the people and to the Alliance.] Regretting the necessity which has forced a rehearsal of these undisputed facts, which of them selves ought to have prevented Mr. Donaldson's elevation to the position he holds, I will submit to the verdict of the Reformers and Alliancemen of the State as to the wisdom and propriefy of my actioD. Respectfully, B. R. TILLMAN. Mr. Ingalls as a Prophet. A.tl::ut* Constitution. Now, that ex-Senator Ingalls is st statesman out of a job, he ' feels that he can afford to be very frank and candid. Tho Kansas orator in a rec nt etter says that slavery and lecssion sre dead dogmas. Hence- . :orth the negro will no% hold the mlance of power. There is a 'rowing hostility to war issues ] md even the race problem is tactically extinct. The negro c nust take his chances with the j. est. There will be no more force } ?ills t^jd no more civil rights c ^L^ingaTls goes on to say that C he African can no longer be a t lolitical factor, and with four a ears of Democratic rule, c Lnglo-Saxon supremacy will fc lever again be disturbed. He n ntimates that the suppression of b he negro vote is all right, and fc] uggests that under the same cir- ij umstances it would be suppressed c ti the north. As he puts it : n "There will be no more politi- b al campaigns fought in the ? Tnited States upon the attitude of be democratic party during the rar, nor its relations to slavery a nd secession, or reconstruction, r the resumption of specie pay lents, or the "disputed succession tl o 1877. The dead past has buried J ts dead. Social and economic ti uestions are at the front. The P ?d us trial issue is the Aaron's s od that has swallowed all the rest. n 'he masses have discovered that a olitical equality does not bring ^ bout social fraternity ; that the allot is not a medicine to cure all : he diseases of the State, and that he inequalities of fortune and ank are as great under a republic s an empire. In a country where [berty is universal, education .rovided for all and every citizen he equal of every.other before the aw, with an equal chance in the truggleof life, many are called Bw chosen ; one eats crnmbs and rears rags, while another is clad a fine linen and purple and fares umptuously every day." Mr. Ingalls is a very bright ?an, and the wonder is that he lid not see the situation in i?s true ight when he was a statesman srith a job. But disappointment - ind defeat sometimes clarify a nan's ideas and give him a keener j nsight into things. With so many - >f the old issues out of the way, s vhat will the republicans (make J ;heir fight on next time? They will have to advocate a protective 1 tariff, the national banking system, ' ! Len demonetization ofsilveraud ? \ centralized goverment. They ; must stand on this platform or disband, and with such a platform their defeat is a foregone conclu sion. Notice.

Charleston Sun. It has been stated in the pub lie prints that Mr. R, G. Ward, th author of the new Reform move ment, known as the "Wage Workers' League," is the nephew of Judge Bond. We havo no knowledge as to the truth of this statemeut, and the fact, if true, so far as we know, is not derogatory to Mr. Ward. Judge Bond, we have heard, has enjoyed social, courtesies in this city which are usually extended only to the best ; but for reasons, which wo are too young to be familiar with or to appreciate, he is popularly and politically damned in the State. We believe he bad something to do with putting, the South Carolina Railway into chancery, something to do with making ex-Governor ChamberlainJReceiver thereof,with two or three times the salary of an ordinary railroad president, and if the Messrs. Wards are his nep hews the irresitible conclusion is that he had something to with put ting them in their present lucrative positions in the retinue of the railway. All of which, being little given to prejudices as we are, we regrad as a perfectly natural series j of consequences. But we must say that under] such a train of circumstances Mr. Ward has exhibited an astonishing amonnt of hardihood in turning aside from his duties as road? master of the South Carol ina I Rail-way to inspire and fopter in the State to which he is so new, and of which, by his own admis sion, he is not even a eitzen a J political movement whose only hope of success lies in the pos-| sibility of obtaining the support of Ike masses from the mountains I to the seaboard. The fact is chiefly interesting for ?he remarkable coincidence that seventeen years aflcr his political downfal ex-Gov ernor Chambelain i-i once more installed hore in the enjoyment of, perhaps, the mest munificent revenues that are drawn from a public or quasi-public smployment in the State and mould be in a positon apparently to again assume the actual general ship of a movement intended to regain control et tho political fortunes of the State.

C. - THE - Union Mutual Life Insurance Company, OIF1 ZFOiR/TL^lSriD, MAUSTE. Incorporated, 1848. Its Policies are the Most Liberal Now Offered to the Public. lethe only existing Company whose policies arc, orean be subject to the MAINE NON-FORFEITURE LAW. WHAT IT IS. The Maine Non-Forfeiture law protects policies from forfeiture by reason of default of payment of premiums. It provides that, after three years' premiums have been paid, failure to pay any subsequent premiums shall not forfeit a policy, but it shall continue in force for its full amount until the reserve (less a small surrender charge) upon the policy is exhausted. The reserve is a sum made up of portions of each and every pre mium paid upon a policy in anticipation of its maturity. Beginning with a small portion of the first premium, it is increased each year by the addition of each subsequent premium, and grows larger year by year, until, at maturity, it &xactly equals the face of the poiicv. When a policy is discontinued therefore, there is in the hands of the Com pany a r>8ervo, greater or less, according to the character and age of the policy. Instead of permitting the Company, upon non-payment of premium, to confiscate this reserve, the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law requires the Company to continue the policy in force until the policy holder receives un equivalent for it in extended insurance. How IT WORKS. If a person, aged 35, pays three years' premiums upon a twenty payment Life policy and then discontinues payment, the policy will be continued 4 years and 257 days longer; if he pays five premiums, and then discontinues, the insurance will continue 7 years and 357 days longer. If the policy is a twenty year endowment, same age, three years' payments will give an extension of 8 years and 150days; five years' payment 13 years, 300 days. If the policy is a 15 Year Endowment, ($1,000) same age, three years' payments will secure insurance to the end of the endowment period and $13.68 in cash if insured lives till that time, and in like manner ten years' payments secures insurance for the full 15 vears and $592.17 in cash. These extensions vary with the age of the insured, 1he class of policy, and the number of payments made; they are stated in each PoliftV ij?-J?'?arB flnrL /Injr.c. -fnr. nno"h nivrnViar . n? p*ymoitfc| oO Unit, the pc^cy-holderihows ata glance exactly what he is entitled to if he discontinues his payments at any time. What if Has Done. The Company Has Paid over Two Hundred Death Claims, in con sequence of this law, aggregating in sums insured more than Four Hundred Thousand Dollars. In every case there had been a default in *he payment of pre nium, and, except for this law, the policies would have been of little )r no value. Instead of 'his, the insurance in each case was extended o the time of death, and tilt Company was required to pay to the )eneficiaries under the policies the sum of $418,335.77. f&e Un o? li Lai Elusions as Comparen WITH ZF-AJTID-TTIF YAL'TES. It is the custom of many companies to provide in their policies liar, upon discontinuance of payment of Premium, paid-up policies ill be given, without the option of extension. This was the practice f the Union Mutual before the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law-was en cted, but it now substitutes for paid-up values the more advantage ns plan of extended insurance. The objection to the paid-up system i that the amount of paid-up insurance which is given upon the dis mtinuance of payments upon a policy, unless it has been in force a reat many years, is insignificant, and of little or no value as protec on ; and it leaves the insured who ceases payment without adequate isurance at the very time he needs it the most. The great advantage of the extended insurance afforded by the aine Lau er the most liberal paid-up system is strikingly shown by e following comparison, and it will be observed that the paid-up ,lue is insignificant in comparison with the amount actually paid by e Union Mutual. The result of two hundred and twelve policies is this: the insured had received paid-up policies instead of ex tended insurance, the Company would have had to pay in settlement of the claims only. $98,197.50 hereas, in fact, it did pay under the Maine Law, $4is'344.77 iking a difference in favor of the beneficiaries under Two Hundred and Twelve policiei of $320,147.28 The policies are free from all restrictions, and incontestible after 3 NE YEAR. A grace of one month is given in the payment of premiums. For further information call on, or address, B. B.
