WILL THE PEOPLE APPROVE?
The white people of South Carolina cannot fail to see the meaning of the action of what purports to be the action of the State Executive Committee, in adopting a resolition denounc ing Senator McLaurin and de manding his resignation. Of course Senator McLaurin will not pay any attention to star chamber proceedings. The com mittee is coimposed of one man from each county elected by their respective county conven tions, but the committee which adopted the resolutions was made up of only a portion of the elected members, and the others were substitutes. The call was to arrange for the primary in the seventh Congressional dis trict to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Dr. J. W. Stokes; there w'as not the slightest sus picion that Senator Tillman would attend the committee meeting and call for action against Senator McLaurin. Sen ator Tillman, by virtue of his being a member of the national committee is a member of the State commit.tee, and it is the first time he has ever attended one of its meetings. Had it been known that such a high handed .outrage was contemplated a full committee of the regular elect ed members would have been present, and probably the re sult would have been otherwise. It was just such snap judg ment tactics that brought on the revolution of 1890. The conven tion which nominated Hagood was called for another purpose, and when certain politicians coun ted noses and found they could succeed, they run roughshod over the purpose of the convention and made the nomination. The peo ple grew restless from that day until they rose up and hurled from power the perpertrators of that injustice. If we approve of this commit tee's action, do not let us grum ble if the committee makes a rule, designating what man we shall vote for; if it were to do so, we should only be getting our deserts for permitting politicians to go unrebuked when they un dertake to throttle the people. If McLaurin has not voted in accordance with the wishes of the people, let the people rebuke him by voting against him, but give him the chance to defend his course before the people whose servant he is. The executive committee did not elect McLau rin, and they have no right to demand his resignation. Sena tor Tillman admitted that Mc Laurin would pay no attention to the resolution and he knew the reason why. But Senator Tillman wanted the resolutions to go through,hoping thereby to cripple McLaurin's progress in the fight for freedom of thought, speech and action he is making. The object of the resolutions is to influence the comting State convention to adopt such a pledge that any man dis agreeing with Tillman on public questions shall not be permitted to discuss his views in the prim ary, thus making. our primary system a close corporation with none allowed to enter who have not Tillman's sanction, and if successful, bossism will levy on us blackmail as well as taxes. We joined the Tillman move ment to put down this very con dition; and now when we find our leader who has grown fat in office, today a stockholder and director in a big corporation, un dertaking to stifle free speech and free thought we feel that the time has come for another rev olution to strike off the shackles of political slavery that an arro gant and tyrannical leader is leading us into. GAG RULE. The action of the State Demo cratic Executive Committee last Thursday night can not meet with the approval of the people. It was a piece of intolerant ty ranny which should be rebuked, Those partisans were drunk with power, and the few politicians on the committee undertook to do that which the Representatives of the people refused to do. The committee's action if not rebuk ed will amount to the destruction of harmony in our State. When a few partisans can so control party action that the people are not to be trusted with the settle ment of public issues, then we may as well do away with a free government and place a monarch over us. Senator Tillman open ly declared at Gaffney that he would oppose action looking to wards keeping McLaurin out of Ahe primary, he further recog nized McLaurin's Democracy when he wanted to contest for his'seat in the primary with Mc Laurin. Then how he could have advocated the adoption of those infamous resolutions is be yond our comprehension. Till man says that McLaurin is no longer a Democrat and insinuates very strongly that McLaurin sold himself to the .Republican party. Tillman has never at tempted to produce any proof,but has relied upon making the as srtion. John Lowdnes Mc Laurin has been in the United States Senate for nearly one term. He and Tillman were elected in opposition to trusts, monoplies and combines, today we see the name of Senator Till man, published as one of the directors in a five million dollar corporation, chartered in the State 'of New Jersey. and we also see the name of his favorite candidate to succeed McLaurin, connected with a3 mine, from which he has already i but no where hav( McLurin has b' suddenly.

It does not req uire much sag acity to discover that there is dissatisfaction in c party in the ders have allowed - td ambitious men ; In the North and Northwest to engraft upon its old time doctrines new theories, which make it hybrid in charac ter and adjustable to conditions existing elsewhere than in the South. In the last two Presi dential elections the party thus handicapped has suffered disas trous defeat, Mr. Bryan and his political associates have consti tuted it into an organization whose principles are calculated to excite class prejudices, and to alienate broad minded " and pro gressive democrats in the Sout. To more fully conceal the real objects of the Populistic elements in the party, the policy o mak ing no vital political issues with any other party has been adopt ed, so as to make it simply a party of opposition and obstruc tion, hoping in this way to de ceive the people and elect a President. The intelligent business men of the South have not fallen into line under the banner of this Populistic democracy, and after two defeats have openly revolted and proclaimed their purpose to rehabilitate the party. This is considered treason by the Bryan ist leaders, and in their efforts to silence this dissatisfaction in the ranks they denounce all who do not agree with theim as rena gades and Republicans. In the their blind zeal they tauntingly denominate the Democracy of the business men as "Commer cial Democracy", and declare it is utterly at 'variance with the principles of true Democracy. They attempt to stifie argument, and trust to frantic appeals to the prejudices of the people to preserve, the present organiza tion. There is then a factional con festin the Democratic party of the South, the one faction striving to preserve the Democratic party as at present organized with Populism and Socialism its main doctrines, the other seeking to eliminate from it these political heresies and rehabilitate it upon the broad and progressive busi ness principles of the Democratic party of the South which made it victorious in the past. Upon the outcome of this factional contest in the party the future growth and prosperity of the South mainly depends. The progress ive wing of the Southern De mocracy favors -policies which will enure to the upbuilding of the South in her material and industrial interests, and such as are in harmony with existing in * dustrial conditions. They favor expansion, ship subsidies proper ly guarded and all other public measures, which will be beneficial to the whole country and which will especially confer upon the South incalculable benefits. It is true these measures are advocated by the Republican party, the ques tion is, shall Southern Democ racy be bereft of all its principles and doctrines, and degenerate * into a political mob of opponents and obstructionists? The fact is, during the last ten years the Democratic party in running off after strange political gods has permitted the Republican party to appropriate all of its progres sive policies and carry them out in their administration of public affairs. And as long as Democ racy is used as a means of ele vating certain men to office, and of subserving the ends of certain interests, it will continue to be a party without policies, and can never hope again to administer the goverment. What we need in the South is an unmixed progressive Democ racy,-a party of ideas and poli cies,-an organization controlled by the people and not by a few leaders, and a Democracy which is founded upon broad practical business as well as political principles. When the party is put upon this plane it will again command the confidence of the entire Southermn people, and en joy a chance of victory in a Presidential election. The North ern Democrats have latterly controlled the platfoo n and diestiny of the Natior:al Demo cratic party. The Southern wing of it has been nothing but a -voting appendage. Most of the votes in the Electoral College come from the South, and its people should have a controlling voice inl shaping its course and policies. When this is done, and the party is rehabilitated upon broad and progressive lines, it will again become a par-ty of power, and the South will reap rich rewards from its achiev into office he was regarded a farmer of such limited means that he had to go in debt to carry on his farming operations, today he is a director in a corporation having a capital stock of $5,000, )00. If McLaurin is to be convicted f bribery on the unproved ac cusation of Tillman why not con v-ict Tillman of bribery when the evidence is so glaring. No, read ers, this is a game of contemptible politics and personal spleen, and to gratify that spleen Tillman ap plied the whip of influence on the committee; fearing his displeas ure, they yielded, and commit ted an outrage on the people.

An Error in Tactics. In speaking of the action of the South Carolina state executive committee in denouncing McLaurin and asking his resignation the Atlanta Constitution says that it was a tactical mistake and will give MeLaurin a following which he could gain in no other way. It also says that it will give McLaurin the chance 'to go before the people as a democrat who has been unfairly treated. This will mean the support of that large class which always stands ready to help the man under pressure as against the strength of intrenched power. The Constitution is right. Real dem ocracy means fair play and an equal chance before the people. The South Carolina state committee has usurped or attempted to usurp the power of the people. They have said practically that there is no use of the party pri mary; there is no use of the people; the state committee can and will decide all these questions, though they prop erly belong to the people. The action of the South Carolina committee is re pugnant to the basic principles of dem ocracy.-Augusta Herald.

Before the meeting of the Demo cratic party in Kansas City last year, I wrote in the Spartanburg Free Lance, a paper at that time owned and edited by Mr. T. B. Thackston, several letters, over my own name, arguing that it would be political suicide for our party to renominate Mr. Wmn. J. Bryan for the presidency, I also urged the importance of the convention adopt ng a broad and liberal platform, which would heal the wounds in the member ship of the party and unite all demo rats against our common enemy, the reublican party. I also contended that the acquisition by the United States of the Philippine Islands, thus securing for our country a permanent foothold in the East, would do more than all else combined to develop and enrich the South, and that this polie'y would be especially beneficial to both the cotton producers and the cotton manufacturers in opening new markets for our great Southern staple and the products miade therefrom. I insisted that the annexation of those islands would force the opening of the Nica raguan canal, as both a commercial and a war necessity, and with the com pletion of this great international waterway, the prosperity, growth and enrichment of the seaboard States would be ohenomena!. I contended that it worli be folly for the democratic party to again enchain its national stanard bearers with a bimetallic plank in the plaiformn, for the financial issue had been irre ?ocably and eternally settled, and it was a waste of words and energy to reopen it. In my letter in the Free Lance I contended that the democratic conventier should adopt a platform in keeping with the changed condition of affairs ir. the country and get out of those old. political -" in which we have beeni -novin - : the war, and accept the sit o The democratic party iasae. a war with Spain, and yet, when the battle had been fought and victory won, we let the republicans reap all honors, and our leaders in congress plae their parpy in the unenviable iht of encouraging and sympathizing with the enemies of our country, and who were in arms against our govern ment and the soldiers. There was no necessity of yielding to the republican party, but it is worse than folly to antagonize and oppose everything that our political opponents advocate, when repeated elections held in this country had endorsed those methods, and that they were settled conditions. There are plenty of grounds upon which we can oppose the ruinous pol icy of the republican p arty without going to the extreme length of an tagonizing the prosperity and honor of the common country. That iniquitous trust system, which enables combine capital to rob and oppress the masses: our infamous laws that tax the people to keep in idleness deserters and camp followers; the carpetbag government instituted in our new possession and the high handed corruption of the party that has so long ruled this government, will furnish to the democrats abundant material from which they can frame a platform that would atppeal to the intel ligence, patriotism and honesty of the voters, would win for our party a crowning victory and give us for a long series of years control of the govern ment. Three times in thirty-six years the democracts have elected presidents. Through a compromise, which turned over to the democrats control of the State government of South Carolina Florida and Louisiana. Tilden was de pived of his sett and Hayes counted in. Grover Cleveland was elected and served for two terms, and both of his administrations were a curse and blight upon the country. Panics arnd business paralysis seized upon the land, thousands of mills and factories were closed down, and the highways lined with idle workmen. Secret bond sales wee made, which cost our taxpayers millions of dollars, and in a time of profound peace the public debt was largely increased. I simply re'fer- to those articles of mine, written more than a year ago, to show that I am no new convert to what is known as "Pr-ogressive democ Heartburn. When the quantity of food taken is too large or the quality too rich, heartbiurn is likely to follow, and especially so if the digestion ha Masticate -elapse be .llness and iaf ter eat too much, -and Liver oided. For -Isaac M. racy," for I have held and advocated, even before the last democratic con vention the same views that I now entertain. And I will state further that .I have no aspiration for public office, and there is not a position within the gift of the people, or any individul officeholder, that I would accept or have. I have permanently retired from journalism for good and all. I am now a farmer, I live on my farm, and intend to follow that avocation for the remainder of my days. I have always stood by and bat tied for the cause of the farmer and laboring classes, and advised what I honestly believed to be their best interests. And in the series of letters which I shall write on the political sit uation, I will advise that policy whici I believe will result in the upbuildine of our own State and Southland, in the honor and glory of our common coun try, and which will promote the en lightenment, the happiness and pros perity of the whole people. It is not my mission or my purpose to advance the claims of any candidate for any office whatever, but I shall dis cuss State and national issues, as they appear to my mind, and the people can then accept or reject them as their judgment and reason may dictate. I am well aware that there are cer tain politicians in our State and the South who denounce as emisaries and hirelings of Mark Hanna every demo crat who refuses to longer follow the leader-strings of Wm. J. Bryan, and advocate any new departure from the old, beaten track. My democracy has never been questioned. I devoted the best years of my life and every talent God has given me, to battling for the cause of my party, and, in the line of public office, I have neither asked nor received one copper in return for my labors. But in all candor I can see but very little, if any, difference whether a man be the follower of Mark Hanna or Tel ier. And so far as I am individually concerned. I do not propose to be guided by either one or the other. With the single exception of his opposition to the gold standard, Teller endorsed every plank in the republican platform, and he was aligned and in harmony in its work with that- party when it was a hundred fold more oppressive to the South and its institutions than that same party is today under the domina tion of President McKinley and Mark Hanna. If Teller ever opposed those outrageous reconstruction measures against the South, the placing of black heels on white necks, and the filling of every Federal office in the South with venial carpetbaggers and ignorant ne groes, I would like for some of those democratic Tellerites to show wherein he has ever befriended our people. On the other hand President McKinley has greatly advanced and improved the public service in the South, and is giv ing prominent positions to representa tive, prominent and competent South era-born white men But as already said, so far as I am individually concerned, I do not pro pose to be a follower of Hanna, Teller or any other republican or ex-republi can leader. I shall think and act for myself, but when the democratic party meets in convention assembled, formulates a platform and nominates candidates. I shall then, and not till then, bow to the will of the majority and loyally support the standard beare:r of my party.
