It was stated in the newspa pers that Hon. W. D. Mayfielh said, that twelve of the member: of the State Democratic Commit tee who voted for the resolution: asking for Senator McLaurin' resignation, had expressed re gret for so voting. Hon. D. H Magill of Greenwood, a membe: of the committee who might bi termed the lash to Tillman': whip, addressed a circular lette: to the twenty one who voted fo: the resolution, and sixteen re plied saying in effect that "the: didn't say it." but in reading th< replies from the noble sixteen i will be noted that there are some among them who write with al apologetic ring, notably amon! these, is the Hon. D. H. Traxler the gentleman who had the hon or to be the first Liquor Com missioner: it was he who accom pained Senator Tillman to th< West where the first liquor pur chases were made for the State from which no rebates have beer placed to the State's credit. Mr Traxler in his reply to the Ma gill circular, after saying he di not regret his vote says, "But did say on several occasions tha I saw no good to come out o resolutions at this particula time. As the executive commit tee, if I understand it correctly was called only to arrange a pri mary in the seventh district But as wise heads thought dif ferent and introduced I could no do otherwise than vote for them. Mr. Traxler's sense of justice and his judgment was agains the resolutions, but as "wis, heads" demanded that he shoul< vote for them, like a nice, good obedient partner he "could no do otherwise" or if he had stoo< upon his manhood and refuse< the "wise head" might havy while in a fit of passion let th< cat out of the wallet, and expos ed the hiding place of the long lost rebates, that many believi were paid to those who installe< the dispensary. That a ma: posing as a representative of th people, should place himself up on record as a yielding, phian tool, at the dictation of a boss i; indeed a sad spectacle. If Mr Traxler is a free and an unshach led man in his dealings with th senior Senator, why did he no stand by his convictions?" saw no good to come out of re solutions" says Mr. Traxler, an< yet because the order came fror Senator Tillman, his companio: in whiskey purchases, he yield ed to the "wiser head." Woul< Mr. Traxler yield to the wisdor of the General Assembly to havy the whiskey transactions of Sen ator Tillman and himself investi gated? The Assembly made on< attempt, and the committee ap pointed were refused permissiol to examine the books of th< whiskey trust. did Mr. Traxle: or Senator Tillman demand tha the committe apointed by a Sout] Carolina Legislature to examin< into their dealings, be permitte< to make a thorough examination No, they both contented them selves with the retort "prove it, but when proof is sought, th doors are closed and admissio: is refused, and the conscientioui Traxler permits himself to re main under suspicion of havin been Tillman's pal in the rebat business. Then is it any wonde: that he yields his conscience an< judgment to "wiser heads"? We have always believed Till man innocent of the charg< "that he had lined his pocket: with rebates," but we cannot un derstand why it is that he doe: not demznd of the whiskey trus that they allow the most search ing investigation, and how it 1 that he in such a short tim< evoluted from poverty to af fluence-a director in a 85,000, 000 New Jersey chartered cor poration. Thc people are entit led to know something, for thei: money. THE GOVERN~OR DIDN'T ASK PERMISSIO19 Governor McSweeney h a: again used his judgment in a wa: to receive popular applause. Col W. A. Neal, after having mad< one of the best superintendents the State Penitentiary ever had and the records show that whei he left the institution the finan cial condition was in splendit shape, but an investigation comn mittee had matters in chargi and as soon as they ascertainet Neal's indebtedness the amnoun was forthcoming, but the statu tory thirty days had expired and on that technical charge he wa: tried by Judge Gary and Attor ney-General Bellinger and con victed-not for robbing the Statt or stealing one cent, but simply for not turning over the State': funds within thirty days. Nove: in the history of the State ha: such desperate efforts to convic1 been made, and never has a ver The efforts to convict were so strenuous that the trial judge ignored a request to charge made by the defendant's counsel, be cause the attorney had not com plied with the rule to reduce to writing his "requests to charge." A man's liberty and character in jeopardy and a legal advantage taken on a mere technicality. Colonel Neal was convicted o and sentenced, but the people throughout the State felt the great injustice of a man convic ted and sentenced to prison, when everybody knows that he did not commit any intentional violation of the law. Petitions c and letters were sent in to the Governor to rescue Coldnel Neal r from his persecutors, and not al low them to further their politi cal fortunes at the expense of a man whom they would crush. Governor McSweeney investi gated the case thoroughly, and after ascertaining to his own sat isfaction that Colonel Neal is not responsible to the State for a dollar, he went to Neal's rescue by signing the pardon prayed for. The Governor's action has not met with the approval of Attor A ney-General Bellinger, and that official gives the press a long harangue, criticizing his chief, winding it up with verse, but the chief executive of South Carolina has treated his subordinate with silence, one of the strongest re bukes that can be administered to a man who will soon become a candidate for Congress before his present term as Attorney General expires. Colonel Neal's friends prayed for the pardon to save the ex pense of a new trial, and the in justice done the man was so glaring that they did not want to _ undergo the wait on the Supreme Court. We join with the best thought of the State in congrat ulating Governor McSweeney, for using his constitutional pre rogative in this case without consulting with the official who was so eloquent and persistent to convict upon a mere technical omission. OH ! HORRORS, IF TRUE. r Any man who will, for politi cal purposes, endeavor to create false impressions about affic tions in an opponent's family is indeed cruel. If the published in terviews with Senator Tillman t at the North are correct, he is not the man we have regarded him. We have looked upon him t as a bluff talker, but one who e would scorn to take a mean ad Ivantage; but if he referred in a slighting manner to Senator Mc tLaurin's family afflictions, it was t simply brutish. When the last ISenatorial campaign started it Swas at Sumter, a distinguished Sphysician of that city advised -Senator McLaurin to return Shome and go through a thorough course of medicine. Dr. Hew t son is the man, and he told him 1his condition would not with stand a campaign. McLaurin, -however, went on, and at York ville Dr. Hewson's words were fulfilled, McLaurin collapsed, from which he has never fully recovered, to the knowledge of his colleague. McLaurin has since that time been a frequent patient in a Washingto:a infirm. -ary, then his wife became affiic t tedl and was also an infirmary patient, and underwent a criti cal operation, to the knowledge of Senator Tillman; then recent t ly Senator McLaurin's daughter 1was stricken with typhoid fever in Greenville, to the knowledge of an entire sympathizing com -munity. When the child was able to travel, on the advice of a physician, the Senator took her on a sea trip, and while North, the newspapers say that Mr. -' Mowry, Senator McLaurin's step-father was stricken with paralysis. These afflictions are not the making of man, and when politicians seek to use them for the purpose of prejudicing the chances of an opponent, it is as ghoulish as robbing a grave of jewels from the dead, ye Politicians claim that " all is fair in love," but we do not be lieve that a politician, it matters not how high he may be, can t!aunt in the faces of a constitu ency any such ghoulishnesss and t retain the people's respect. If Tillman did speak slightingly of -McLaurin's family afflictions he is unworthy the name of man. We sincerely hope that Tillman -h1as been misquoted. $100 Reward, $100. -The readers of this paper wil' be pleased t Slearn that there is at least one dreaded disease that science has been able to cure in all its stages, and that is Catarrh.

I notice that some of our State prei think it best that the white voters Soutli Carolina divide and organi: two political parties. In certain se tions of this country it is best for tl interests of the people that there two parties and the vote nearly equal as possible. This serves as check upon office holders, and it is tl best security for an honest administr tion of public affairs. When one party or faction feelsi self entrenched in power there is si to be corruption and extravaganci We have only to cite the long anda most unbroken reign of the Republic; party in our national affaIrs to pros this. And what applies to the gener; government will apply with equ; force and justice to State, county ar municipal officeholders. If a pub] official thinks he can obtain his offi< for a long series of years, backed by ti all-powerful political machinery of h party, there is great danger of corru: tion; for many men believe that thei is a difference in robbing the pub] and wronging an Individual.. I coul cite hundreds of instances like those< Treasurer Polk of Tennessee and Vil cent of Alabama, who possessed tI unbounded confidence of their par1 and betrayed their trust. It is certainly wr'ong, but there is tendency in all political parties ai factions to shield their .members whi guilty of wrongdoing, under the beli that an exposure would weaken the cause. For over three hundred yea the stability and purity of the Engli: government is largely due to the exi tence of its two political parties, ti Whigs and the Tories. One par served as a guard and a check on ti other', and upon the first suspicion corruption or mismanagement on tI part of the party in powver an appeal made to the country, and often in single election, the administration that great nation is reversed. Ne men are placed in power, the accoun of the defeated party are rigidly e: amined and if anything is found wrorx the offenders are brought to punis] ment. But in our own State of South Car, lina I do not see how we can afford1 let our white voters divide. We ha' in our midst a serious menace and danger in that large negro populatic outnumbering the whites. It is true that under our new col stitution the negro is at present di franchised. But the suffrage is on] a temporary makeshift, and if ti white vote is ever divided, that educ: tional provision will not be worth tl paper it is written on. When it's po' er and supremacy is thr'eatened endangered, you will see the party c faction that controls our State goveri ment at the time seeking to ma] terms and deal with the negro, and tl names of thousan~ds of blacks will 1 placed upon the list of voters. Thet (vill then be a scramble for the blac vote, and you will see illiterate whit men. who'do riot belong to the domil ant faction be disfranchised, andi their place negroes made voters. opposed the call of a constitution; convention, for I did not see how tl Demuocr'ats of South Carolina could in prove on that seven-box law, and whic was all the safeguard we neede against black ignor'ance. I admit that our new constitution now wor'king like a charm and the n< gro is eliminated from politics.S ong as the white people are wor'kin and v'oting together, there is no caus say "Consumption can be eured." Nature alone won't do it. It needs help. Doctors say "Scott's Emulsion is the best help." But you must continue its use even in hot weather.

But there is serious danger of this apparent security to I white domination bringing on the very danger it sought to avoid. The im pression has been created tlat under our new constitution the negro is dis franchised, and therefore the whites can afford to divide. when in truth and s I reality and such division will bequeath is ! the balance of power in South Carolina Ito the negro. and make him our politi cal arbiter. e. Ia some future letter I will show how certain reform leaders in our c"nstitu tional convention sought to oppress the 0poorer class of whites by fixing upon c- them a three dollar poll tax and how a le premium of $2,000 must be paid to the family of every black brute lynched, and which clause is an outrage upon the taxpavers of different counties. - Therefore, I contend that the white >, people of South Carolina cannot afford to divide, for any such division means the bringing back of the negro in poli tics. I admit that there are reforms I needed in the government of our State, I for taxes are today higher than they -s. were under Republican and carpetbag Ad rule, while the assessed value of farm id ing lands have doubled if not quadrup e. led in the face of the great strides South Carolina has made in the last ten or twenty years. With our new manu le J facturing enterprises, and vast increase o in wealth, taxes ought to be reduced 1 year by year, but instead of this they are piliing up higher and higher. There is something wrong in our State S government, when such a condition of d affairs exist, and every taxpayer would a like to see the wrong righted. But had we not better submit to this exac tion than see the negro brought back d again in politics and our labor system it demoralized, which will inevitably be the result. I cannot understand how any South Carolina Democrat who has the peace, v honor and prosperity of the State at s- heart can encourage any movement er tending to divide the white rote. and b give cause or excuse for the organiza ad tion of an independent or Republican party. e. And again, the politician who be nd lieves that the simple name o:' Tillman * is allpowerful and will insure, the tri umph of any movement or faction that he supports is laboring under a wrong belief. Tillman represents the old re form movement and he has a great .e many friends who will follow him to any 'length, but we must remember d that it has been eleven years since the S reform movement was first started, and a child, at the time, ten years of age, is now a voter, and this new generation t- does not feel the same political ani .g mosity against the conservatives as te their fathers did when factional feeling ran so high. We must also remember - that thousands of these olgl line refor mers have moved to towns or cotton Ls mills, and their minds have undergone a revolutionizing political change. Then, since 1890, a great many refor mers have been defeated for office in South Carolina and many of these back a numbers feel that they have not been treated right and bear a secret grudge , against the rulers of their party sitl a in power. Even when factional feeling was o bitterest there was only about ten or no fifteen thousand votes difference be *ee tween the conservatives and reform og ers. ed Now, while there are hundreds of r men in every county who are too cow v ardly to take an open stand against in what is known as "Tillmanism" let the re- lines be once drawn and you will find ug in the ballot box many secret opposi tion votes. I cannot imagine a greater calamity that could befall South Carolina than for our white voters to divide. We are Democrats by birth and in faith, and it is only through the Democratic party is that the South can hope for justice of and to attain her full share of prosper se ity. We don't want to see any white e- Republican party built up in South 1e Carolina, for it would be sure to result >e in bringing the negro back i politics, s and create a bitter division among our a people. 1e But at the same time there are in a- our State thousands of as tried and as true Democrats as ever drew the breath t- of life who are tired of having the e principles oi their party prostituted L and seein~g it led to wreck and ruin by 1- Western populists and renegade Re Spublicans. They demand the right to e freely discuss their views before the al intelligent voters of our State and be al accorded the same honesty of purpose d as they are willing to accord those of c their party wvho differ with them. e They do not intend to be ostracised and e browbeaten. They have confidence in s the patriotism and intelligence of tne .voters of their State and are willing to e accept any verdict they may render at ic the ballot box. These Democrats will id not be bulldozed and driven from their of positions by threats or intimidation. n- All they ask is an impartial hearing, a ie free ballot and a fair count. SThere aro certain politIcians in South Carolina who. to retain themselves in a power, would again divide the people Ld into warring factions, paralyze pros m perity and bring the negro back into ef politics. .But I believe that the peo ir ple are getting iired of abuse and per es sonalities, and vrant to hear both sides ;h of every question impartially discussed. s- Next year we will hava a heateci ie campaign and it will be a criticai y. period in the history of our State. ie Eut I have an abiding faith in the dis of cerning intelligence, justice and patri ie otism of the voters of South Curolina, is and I am willing to gracefully yield to a wvhatever verdict they render at the of ballot box. , in my next letter I will discuss the t annexation of the Philippines, and . which I believe will do more than all Selse for the South and for the enrich ment of our cotton producers and monu facturers.
