WEDNESDAY, JULY 23, 1890.
The long resolutions of the clubs
crowd out editorial, local, and news
matter. Two or three communica
tions are also crowded out.
Ifthere be any trouble in Manning
next Saturday, it will chargeable to
rabid, if not incendiary, words by
Anti-Tillman men and organs. We
expect a quiet time.
Keep in good humor. There i
nothing in the present political con
test to get mad about. There is no
excuse to abuse the farmers and call
them names because they wish to
change officers. There is no reason
why you should fight your neighbor
because you wish Tillman, Earle, or
Bratton for governor. Not one of
them would take off his coat and fight
for you if you were running for coun
A prominent and reliable gentle
man of this county gives us the fol
.,-lowing bit of political history con
cerning that true and noble patriot
(Haskell,) who is now so strenuously
defending the department of agricul

the Central railroad, seated directly
'behind the gentleman above referred
tojand was discussing the political
situation with a .friend. The time,
three years ago. Mr. Haskell deplored
the small support given the South
Carolina College, and said it was a
useless waste of money to support the
agricultural bureau; that the $60,.
000expended on it had not benefitted
the State $10. It's all owing to
whse ox is gored. As long as the
agricabtural bureau now, furnishes a
berth for a few of the ring, we
suppose it is all right.
The State campaign meeting is to
be held in Mnning next Saturday,

an important epoch in the history of

SCLFowler was in town yesterday,

us that before issuing circulars

last station was pseand as it was
1only seven mlsdistant from Sumter,
the time was too short for the con

s*oped the train on Privateer trestle,
inorder to compel the passengers to
remain in the coaches till he could

been stopped anywhere else a large

it took only twenty-seven minutes to
take up the tickets, pretty fast work.
The conductor in charge of the train
is one of the most careful and experi
enced on the road.
We were very much gratified to
hear Col. Towler say that he never
knew of so large an excursion in
'whieh there was so little dis
orderly conduct. The conductor
of the train told him there
was nothing but good-natured fun,
and only two or three of the en
tire five hundred were in any way un
der the influence of whiskey. Col.
Fowler says that for the size of the
excursion there was less rowdyism
and more sobriety on this excursion
than any that has ever come under
his observation~North or South.

EDIToR MANNING TDEs-I suppose you

able to rise from his chair where he was
carried, when this noble old Roman began to
speak love and veneration was depicted up
on every countenance, and amid a round of
applause he thanked his fellow-citizens for
the compliment paid him. -He said he knew
he had but a few more years to live, but
when his country called him lie would,
though feeble, hold up his hands while
breath remained 'and especially for his
brethren, the sorely oppressed farmers. He
very forcibly dwelt upon the great issues
before us, and he trusted that his fellow
citizens would stand firmly upon the farm

WHEnEAS, we, the members of the Clar
endon Democratic club, composed of farm
ers and those of other occupations, believina
in the right of freedom of speech as long as
it is within the bounds of truth; believing
that the government of South Carolina since
1876 has been ably and faithfully adminis
tered by our State officers; and whereas, our
government has been wilfully slandered as
being corrupt and permeated with political
leprosy, and some of our State's most hon
ored citizens charged with peijury by de
signing politicians who are seeking the
enioluments of our public oulices:
Resolved, That we believe these eharges to
be untrue and founded in the most impure
2. That we believe in a Democratic govern
ment, straightout, as the only means of ad
ministering justice to all and the upholding
of Anglo-Saxon supremacy.
3. That we heartily favor full representa
tion to all classes, absolute protection to all
and special privileges to none.

against class, and believe we should stand
shoulder to shoulder as one people, striving

and fearless defence by Gens. Earle and
Bratton of the Democratic party and the
government of South Carolina.
B. P. Barron, Esq., also offered a set of
resolutions which are as follows:
WHEREAs. the highest interest of the State
will be best subserved and promoted by
strict adherence to the orderly methods of
the regular Democratic orgaiization, and,
a priori, any effort to organize a class within
the Democratic party for any purpose is
fraught with evil; and whereas, no patriotic
citizen, no goo4 and wortby man will, by
open charges, utter that which is untrue to
the injury of the State, nor by innuendoes
and insinuations imply that which he cannot
indisputably and clearly make plain, the
tendency of which is to lessen the effective
ness of the Democratic party by dividing it
into factions and classes; and whereas, we
deplore the present unhappy state of excite
ment, and are admonished of the danger of
capital being driven from our State, of con
fidence being lessened in us and the rate of
interest on our bonded debt being increased,
and, above all, of the great dangers in the
unwisdom of class organization within the
Democratic fold; therefore be it
ResolLed, That adhering strictly to the
regular methods of the Democratic party we
will put forth earnest efforts, in all reason
able, fair, and honorable ways, to preserve
the integrity of the regular Democratic or
ganization, discouraging the evils of class
combinations within the party.
2. That we will not support any candi
date who poses as a class candidate for any
position, F~ederal, State, er county, but will,
support only such as stand squarely oni the
regular Democratic platform, qualhfied in
tellectually and in spirit, by attarinments
and virtues, to represent in the office he
seeks the 'vhole people; who will have due
care and regard for any interest, and there
by protect any class of the people and pro
mote the welfare of the whole.

state in which every citizen is a part of the
Government, to suppress with all our might
whatever is pure :Lnd efficient in thrt gov

hlst extremity whatever threatens to destroy
that purity and efficiency, and establish in
their stead discord, demagogism, and fraud.
Be -it resolved, by the Fork Demacratic
club of Clarendon. S. C.:
1. That we rejoice in the prosperity at
tained by our beloved State under tie rule
of the Democratic party since 1876. c.nd we

public-spirited gentlemen, in whose hands
all the interests of all classes of our people
will be safe.
3. That we denounce the greed3 office

S100 REWARD. $100.
The readers of the ThrEs will be pleased
to learn that there is at least one dreaded
disease that science has been able to cure in
ali its stages, and that is catarrh. Hall's
catarrh cure is the only positive cure now
known to the medical fraternity. Catarrh
being a constitutional disease, requires con
stitutional treatment. Hall's catarrt eure is
taken internally, acting directly upon the
blood and mucous surfaces of the system,
thereby destroying the fonndation of the
disease, and giving the patient strength by
building up the constitution and assisting
nature in doing its work. The proprietor;
have so much faith in its curative powers
that they offer one hundred dollars for any
case that it fails to cure. Send for list of

No Orangeburg Roughs at Sumter.
[From the Orangeburg Enterprise.]
It has gone the rounds of a good many
newspapers in the State that there was a
"howling mob" at Sumter which interrupt
ed Gen. Earle, and that the mob was com
posed of persons mainly from Orangeburg
When we read this we certainly were
greatly surprised as we did not think that
Orangeburg county contained enough of
those human beings bearing a striking re
semblance in actions to the long-eared ani
mal to form a "howling mob." In this is
sue will be found a denial of tie truth of
this statement made in the Register, the
Xewse and Courier and other paper.;. Capt.
P. Webb Bull has come to the front and
says that these men were not Orangeburg
men, and that the report that Orangeburg
men w.ere jailed at Sumter is a base false
hood. We are glad indeed to henr this de
nied from a prominent gentlemra of the
very section of the county from which it is
charged this "howling maob" camet. From
our own knowledge of the people of Orange
burg county we prefer to believe Mr. Bull's
statement in preference to the reports pub
lished in these daily papers of thie State.
The men from the Santee setion of Orange
burg county who went over to Sun.ter to at
tend the meeting there did not act like a
"howling mob," but they do not deny that
they cheered for 'T.illman. They hollered
for their choice, and may have hollered
pretty loud, too, but they did so like gen
tlemen and. at the proper time.
Both Ankles Crushe.
In a railroad smashup in 1876 I had
both anlecs badly crushed. Soon after
blood poison set in, and both legs,
from my knees down, were covered
with ulcerated sores, that refused all
efforts to heal. I wa~s virtually help
less for te~n years, being bedridden
most of the time. During all the
time I was attended by the best phy
sicians in this section of the State,
and must have taken a cart load of
medicine, without receiving any re
lief or being benefitted in any way.
In 1887 I was induced to try Swift's
Specific (S. S. S.) I comenced to im
prove from the first dose, and contiul
ued to get better, until to-dalzy I. am
as sound and well as any man in the
universe. This was two years ago,
since which I have had no return of
sores or any pain in the legs. From
my experience I conscientiously be
lieve that Swift's Specific (S. S. S.) has
no equal as a~ blood purifier, and I
eheer'fully recommend it to any one
sufrering from any disease of the
blood. .CHARLEs E. HAMILrOY,

Makes many lives miserable, and often last
self destruction. Distress after eating, sick head
ache, heartburn, sour stomach, mental depres
sion, etc., are caused by this very common and
increasing disease. Hood's sarsaparilla tones the .
stomach, creates an appetite, promotes healthy
digestion, relieves sick headache, clears the
mind, and cures the most obstinate cases of dys
pepsia. Read the following:C
" I have been troubled with dyspepsia. I had
but little appetite, and what I did eat distresse4 (
me, or did me little good. In an hiour after eatig~ (
I would experience a faintness or tired, all-gono I
feeling, as though I had not eaten anything.
Hood's Sarsaparilla did me an immense amount
of good. It gave mo an appetite, and my food
relished and satisfied the craving I had previously
experienced. It relieved me of that faint, tired,
all-gone feeling. I have felt so mchl better since
I took flood's Sarsaparilla, that I am happy to
recommend It." G. A. PAGE, Watertown, Mass.
