Free Speech and Free Discussion.
The political canvass in South Carolina
has advanced to the secoud stage. Trick?
er}' and subterfuge have failed, and now, as
at Chester, the satellites of the Ring meet
the arguments of the Reform candidates
with stones and bludgeons. Whether we
shall advance to the third stage-that of
Winchester rifles and bloody riot-depends
upon Governor Scott, and not upon the party
of Reform. The honest people of the State
do not invite disorder. Conscious of the
strength and purity of their cause, they de?
sire to set argument against argument, and
fact against fact. But they will not be
brow-beaten or driven from the hustings,
though all the rifles in the Union were level?
led against them.
It has been evident, from the opening of
the canvass, that the Scott Ring dreaded the
effect that might be produced upon the col?
ored people by the close reasoning and fiery
eloquence of Carpenter, Butler and Ker?
shaw. They devised an ingenious plan for
keeping the freedmen away from the Reform
gatherings. With the published list of ap?
pointments before them, they, upon nearly
every occasion, ordered a Scott barbecue, or
so-called nominating convention, to be held
on the day of the Reform meeting, at a spot
.several miles distant. Their runners were
sent out in all directions ordering the ne?
groes, in the name of Governor Scott, to
keep away from the Reform meetings.
Rumors were industriously circulated that
the Reformers intended "to poison" the col?
ored men at the Reform barbecues, and now
and then a crowd of the slaves of the League
beat, without mercy, an isolated colored man
who had the courage and the sense to think
for himself, and look to his own interests
instead of working on for the interest of the
Ring. By these means hundreds of freedmen
have been kept away from the Reform meet?
ings, and this, to the chagrin of the Scott
faction, has wonderfully strengthened the
position of the Reform party. The colored
men who did hear Carpenter, Butler and
Kershaw have been, for the most part, con?
vinced and converted, and they have spread
over the country the watchwords of Reform
more thoroughly and effectually than could
have been done by our most active public
canvassers. If the Reformers are as weak
and corrupt, and the Ring is as strong and
pure, as the Scott emissaries declare them
to be, why should tbe colored men be de?
barred from the privilege of witnessing the
discomfiture of the Reformers by the cham?
pions or the Ring ? Is it feared that they
cannot discriminate between the true and
the false ? Have they not the honesty and the
manhood to love what is right and to hate
what ia wrong ? The Reform party con?
tend that the colored people, as free men, can
judge for themselves; that the colored peo?
ple, and not Scotty & Co., shall determine
whether it is best for them to vote on the
side of Whittemore and Orr, or on the side
of Hampton, Kershaw, Perry and Wardlaw.
The Scott Ring do their be3t to drive the
negroes from the Reform meetings. The
Reformers invite all honest men to come
to their meetings and hear and decide for
tbcmsrlvcs. In fact, thf? Ring dread the
influence of truth and candor. Hence their
efforts to hold the colored people in political
chains, and to whip them into a blind sup?
port of the Scott party. That these efforts
have failed, the muetings in the up-country
show, and this led to the attempt made at
Chester'to bully the Reformers into, silence.
This was the flr3t meeting at which both
Scottites and Reformers had spoken on the.
same stage. A written agreement had beea
made which bound the meeting to hear,
without interruption, all the speakers. The
Reformers listened attentively to what
Chamberlain and Tomlinson had to say.
But when Carpenter and Butlerihad stripped
them bare, had rebutted their arguments,
disproved their assertions and exposed the
iniquity of their party, thi3 Senator Wim?
bush, one of the signers of the agreement,
provoked a disturbance and egged on th"*
colored people to a riot, in which Judge
Carpenter and others were exposed to
serious danger. As it wa3, two inoffensive
citizens were wounded by the mob.
We are glad that the decent people of
Chester did not, as they might have done,
drive the mob out of the town. The Re?
formers had on their side every element ?
strength and security. They could have
whipped Wimbush aud his gang into obe?
dience. But, we repeat it, we are glad that
they held their hands. A like forbearance
will not always be shown. What we desire
is a peaceful canvass, without tumult and
without bloodshed. No eflbrt will be spared
to preserve peace, but if Scott will have war,
he shall have it-in self-defence.
Tbe Eligibility of Members of Congre?.
The New Y'ork World calls the attention
of the South to the great importance of
nominating for Congress those persons who,
if elected, can take their seats without any
action by that body in the nature of a relief
bill. This is the earnest advice of all the
friends of the South, for it may be taken for
granted that the Radicals will stretch the :
law to the utmost, and will make no con- "
cession whatever to any person not u -
thorough-paced member of their party. They
may go so far* as to refuse their seats to <
members who are lawfully elected by large
majorities, and are in every way eligible.
This is what they will do, if they daw, in the
case or the members elect from North Caro?
lina. Against this usurpation of power the
South can only protest; but it can avoid
giving the Badicala an excuse for effecting
under cover of the law, exclusions which
will leave them, as before, in the majority.
The Southern members should, nt least, be
eligible according to law ; this is demanded
of the South in justice to itself, as well as in
justice to those Northern members who are
ready to battle for the restoration, and main?
tenance of a truly constitutional Union.
The proscriptive barriers which stand in
the way of Southerners are two in number
the Fourteenth amendment and the test
oath ; nud it unfortunately happens that many
Southern citizens who would not be excluded
from Congress by the former, are effectually
shut out by the latter. '. The. third section of
the Fourteenth ameudrrleut is in these
SEC. 3. No person shall be a senator or rep?
resentative to Consress, or elector of Presi?
dent and vice-President, or hold any office.
Civil or military, under the United States or
under any State, who, having previously taken
an oath, as a member ot Congress, or as an
officer of the United States, or as a member of
any State Legislature, or as an executive or
judicial officer of any State, to support the Con?
stitution of the United Slates, 6hall have en?
gaged in insurrection or rebellion against the
same, or given aid and comfort to the enemies
thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two
thirds ot each House, remove such disability.
This excludes all citizens who, previous to
the rebellion, had held any Federal or State
office which required them to swear to sup?
port the Constitution ; but it does not ex?
clude anybody for simple participation in
the rebellion, not even if he was an officer
of the Confederate Government or a military
officer in its service. Heuce some have in?
ferred that such persons are not debarred
from admission to Congress. By the Fourth
teenth amendmeut they are not, certainly
but what is called the iron-clad test oath,
which is inflexibly administered to the mem?
bers, shuts out all who cannot take it. This
oath required by the act of July 2, 1862,
which is still in force, is iu the following
I, A. B , do solemly sw??r (or affirm) that
have never voluntarily borne arms against the
United States since I have been a citizen
thereof; that I have voluntarily given no aid,
countenance, counsel, or encouragement to
persons engaged in armed hostility thereto;
that I have neither sought nor accepted nor
attempted to exercise the functions ot any
office whatever under any authority or pre?
tended authority In hostility to the United
States; that I have not yielded a voluntary
support to any pretended government, author?
ity, power, or constitution within the United
States hostile or inimical thereto And I do
further swear (or affirm) that, to the best of
my knowledge and ability, I will support and
defend the Constitution of the United States
against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that
Twill bear true f<h and allegiance to the
same; that I take this obligation freely, with?
out any mental reservation or purpose of eva?
sion, and that I will well and faithfully dis?
charge the duties of the office on which I am
about to enter, so help ine God*
Now if any Southern district elects a
member who cannot take this iron-clad
oath, it will merely throw away a seat in the
House and a vote against Radical tyranny.
The oath, according to the New York World,
will certainly be enforced; and that oath
cannot be taken by any man who, in or out
of the army, gave voluntarily any aid, as?
sistance or encouragement to the "rebel
"lion," orto persons engaged in "rebel
"lion." This oath virtually excludes all but
Southern Union men as they ,hre called.
The candidates must be taken, it would
seem, from among Southern Union men, or
from among those who have taken up their
residence in the South since the war, and
who, besides, gave the South, during the
war, neither encouragement nor assistance.
There i3, however, a modified oath provid?
ed by an act passed iu 1868 ; but this modi?
fied oath is only for members disqualified
under the Fourteenth amendment, whose
disability has been removed by act of Con?
gress. R. R Butler, of Tennessee, Senator
Pool, of North Carolina, aud more recently
Senator Johnson, of Virginia, and General
Lewis, of Kentucky, were admitted on tak?
ing this modified oath ; and there may have
been some other instances. But it has no
application to ordinary case3. To make our
meaning clear, it may be added that General
Butler, for example, who wus disqualified by
the Fourteenth amendment and has had his
Usabilities removed, could take the modified
oath and claim his seat, while any private
in his command, although not, disqualified
Dy the Fifteenth amendment, could not
:Iaini a seat, because, haviBg voluntarily
been a soldier, he could not take the iron?
clad test oath.
"We hope and trust that the Southern di3
;rlct3, bearing these faces in mind, will be
specially careful either to nomiuate men
ic/to have had their disabilities removed, or
those who do not rest under the disabilities of
he Fourteenth amendment, and can take (he
r on-clad test oath.
