Tillman a the Primary.
Id view of the fact that numbers of
Anti-Tillman meetiogs, which bave
elected delegates to the Convention
which meets today, have adopud reso
lutions demanding a direct primary, a
reporter for the Register sought au
interview with Governor Tillman to
hear what he had to say ou that sub
ject. The scribe began his probing
with the question : Governor, what is
your attitude and opinion in regard to a
direct primary?
He answered : "I am surprised that
you should ask this question wheu the
matter was fully discussed by me dur
ing the last campaign. I am one of
the pioneers io the agitation iu advocacy
of a State primary, and io 1888, on
two occasions, in both State conven
tions, I made speeches advocating the
nomination of State officers by this
method. In both conventions the mat
ter was overwhelmingly defeated, and
after careful analysis and study of the
situation I so far modified my opinion
as to advocate the plan, now in vogue,
of electing delegates by a primary
The demand for a change was made in
the March platform, 1S90, which I
wrote, and it was incorporated iu the
party constitution in September. The
present hue and cry for a direct prima
ry is a piece of political clap-trap by
which my enemies seek to place me in
a false position. If it were carried out
they would be the first to regret it and
advocate a change. They don't want
it. But I desire to say right here that
individually I am willing aud was in
1890 to submit my candidacy to a di
rect vote of the white Democrats of the
State. I have every reason to believe
that my strength would be more clearly
j-hown and I would have a more emphat
ic endorsement under that plan than I
could uuder the existing one. The
counties of Georgetown, Beaufort, Sum
ter, llichland and Fairfield, which are
all debatable, and which for the f-ake of
argnmeut, I will say will go against me,
would iu that event be counterbalanced
by the majority I expect to obtain in
either Spartauburg or Greenville. The
demand for the primary arose in the
white section of the State and was de
signed to break up ring rule. It was
never intended to take any advantage
of the brave Democrats of the negro
"What caused you to modify your
opinion and change from a direct pri
mary to an eleetiou of delegates by pri
mary i
"Well the primary system, looks to
obtaining the popular voice by allowing
the individual voter to express his per
sonal preference and the present system
gives that. Iam and always have been
in favor of the people selecting their
own rulers "
The Governor here put his hand in
bis breast pocket nnd drew out a note
book and said : "Here is a table which
I have prepared for campaign purposes.
This i- my basket of 'rocks,' " he
laughingly added, "and I wiii chunk
one into the enemy's camp before the
campaign opens. It is a table giving
the white and colored population, with
the delegates in the State Convention,
of fourteen counties, and will show very
clearly what a disturbing factor iu State
politics a direct primary wuuld be.
Here is the table.

tled to fourteen votes in Convention,
would overbalance Beaufort, Berkeley,
Fait field, Georgetown and Sumter, enti
tled to fifty votes in Convention, aud
yet have 750 votes to spare.
"By deducting the population of
these fourteen counties from the total
white and colored population of the
State, we fiod that these fourteen coun
ties, containing only 179,000 of the
colored population, would overbalance
twenty-one counties, which are compell
ed to coutrol 513,000 negroes, or that
Spattauburg, entitled to fcurteeu votes
in the Convention, w*ould in a primary
overbalance Beaufort, Berkeley, Fair

to fitry votes iu the Convention, and yet
have 750 votes to spare You perceive
at once that a direct primary would
utterly destroy the political equilibrium
of the State. It would do more The |
Democrats in the heavy negro counties
who are now asked to adopt this system
of nominating State officers will be ex
pected to coutrol the colored vote in
their respective counties and send Dem
ocrats to the Legislature, although they
would never have a chance to obtain
any of the State offices by reason of a
small white vote. Is it either reasona
ble or just '? I don't think s>>, and
hence my change of opinion."
"But, Governor, if one white man
in Berkeley has as much political power
in the State Convention as five white
men in Spartanburg, will not that breed
"A' the first blush it appears to be
wrot.g, but we must lak" things as we
find them. This sanie argument is
the stock in ti ade <>f the Foraker-Sber?

demand* that the Southern electoral vote

based on the votes cast, rather than the j
ipuiation They claim that one white

ing aii precedent and law, recognize
the j ?sirco of their argument iu t.ur
part management, how are wc to ex
pect that they will stop agitating along
Iol?I line, und how would we answer
their orators in Congress and on the
stump? -presenfation in all political
bodies is based on the legal representa
tion according to population. Where
the conditions are so unrqnal aud the
t qui li bri um that exists would be so vio
lently disturbed by a change, I cannot
believe that such change would add to
the harmony and unity of the party
which seems so dear to these same pa
triots. It is a matter for the party to
determine, and ? am ready to submit to
the verdict of tlie psople."?Columbia

Political Inequality.
Tn justice to Governor Tillman,
whose position on a direct primary has
bren criticised in our columns, we give
hie statement of the question as he
views it now, so that every one may
judge for himself whether or not the
changed position of the Governor is
tenable ar.d just. Like everything he
does, there is no mistake as to where he
stands, for it is always easy to place
him on every topic of public interest
He is not dodging arouud every issue,
and while he may reverse his views
occasionally, it is simple candor to say
that he is always ready to champion the
opposite eide when he gets there. Nev
ertheless, we believe that Governor
Tillman was clearly right in his advo
cacy of a direct primary in former
years, and that Le is just as decidedly
wrong in the position he now occupies
The culminating point of his argument
lies in the table he has prepared to
show the inequality of a direct primary,
by which he alleges that fourteen coun
ties would gain an undue advantage
over the remaining twenty oue. Iu
order to take a look at the other side,
we have also prepared a table to show
the inequality of the present system,
through which an UDdue advantage has
been given to a minority of the Demo
cratic voters in this State for a long
time. Look at these figures:

Fifteen counties, representing a little
over one-third of the whites and nearly
two-thirds of the negroes, only lack one
vote of controlling the Staio Conven
tion. Twenty counties, representing
nearly two-thirds of the whites aud a
little over one third of the negroes, are
entitled to only one-half the delegates
in a State Convention.
The Governor declares "that a direct
primary would utterly destroy the polit
ical equilibrium of the State,'' How
could it destroy that which has never
existed ? Political power in this vState
has been unequally balanced since its
earliest, history, aud the contention now
is to rectify the abuse of generations
Examine the figures given in the two
tables, and decide whether the inequali
ty which continues to exist under the
convention plan docs not far exceed the
injustice alleged against the direct pri
mary. It is true that the re apportion
ment under the last census has modi
fied the inequality to some exteut, and
that the distribution of power is not so
glaringly unjust as in former years, but
when it comes to one-third being on an
equal footing with two-thirds inside the
party lines, we are not willing to stop
the agitation of this subject. There is
no excuse in the claim that this inequal
ity ought to continue because the negro
counties are harder to control in the
general election, and in point of fact
we do not admit that it requires any
mere exer'ion to gain the election in
one section of the State than another.
So long as the eight box law exists,
and the negroes ate not generally regis
tered, it is absurd to claim any special
credit in controlling the colored vote,
which has not reached 25.000 at auy
election in the last ten years.
The Cooveution system of itself is
sufficiently unjust to the majority of
white voters, by which one third virtu
ally controls two-thirds, as we have
already shown. But the indirect pri
mary for the election of delegates, a?
now provided under the party constitu
tion, can work even a jjieater hardship
upon the majority of Democrats in this
State. In the fifteen counties we have
named, in order to elect delegates by
a majority in each conty, it. would re
quire only lG.SOO votes at a full prima
ry, excluding the negroes from the
count. In the other twenty counties it
would r< quire 29.O?0 votes to elect the
same number ot delegates by a majority
in each county. This fresh device to
blind the people is even worse than the
old system which Gov. Tillman sought
to destroy prior to 1890. It is a piti
ful subterfuge aud a miserable evasion
of the true issue involved, which was
aptly stated by Gov. Tillman in one of
his speeches during the last campaign :
" We have never had a Democratic
Governor, and I cau prove it by show
ing vou, because you never have voted
for a Governor in your life except after
he was nominated in November. Now
the fight is that the people shall have
the right for themselves, that each and
every man shall have a voice in the
election of the Chief Magistrate and
chief officers." The people are stiii
denied this right, and uutil we get a
direct primary, are we still without a
Democratic Governor Who is respon
sible '??Enterprise and Mountaineer.

An Estimate of Cleveland
According to a very careful survey
of the whole political field made by
Ihe Washington correspondent of the
Boston Herald, Ind., and the largest
circulated paper in all New England,
the out'ook for Cleveland is not only
most favorable, but bin nomination is
assured We have no doubt our
selves of the rapid growth of senti
ment in favor of Cleveland, and lie
may get all the States given him by
the Herald's coi respondent, but as
yet less than 160 instructed votes can
be counted on. The vote given him
is 737 of a total 9)0. To let our
readers see what is counted upon we
copy the table :
AH New England, solid for Cleve
land, 78
Pennsylvania, solid for Cleveland 64
New Jersey, solid for Cleveland 20
Ohio, solid for Cleveland 46
indiana, solid for Cleve?and 30

We do not suppose this is an ex
aggeration. But will he get all these
on the first ballot ? He may. In
the South he will probably receive all
but North Carolina, a part of Virginia,
and a part of Georgia, and some other
scattered votes that may be given to
Hill. We would suppose at least 200
Southern votes would be given him
as the delegates more than double the
electoral votes.?Wilmington Mes
The South at the World's
In its issue for this week the Manu
facturera' Record appeal to the South to
prepare for the World's Columbian
Exposition :
"The display of apathy regarding
preparation that is being manifested in
several sections of the South is greatiy
to be lamented. Iu the absence it
coustitu'ional obstacles, the refusal of
any Southern legislature to make lib
eral appropriation for Sfate representa
t m at Chicago is false economy of the
most conspicuous kind. Neglect to make
ample provi.siou for this great event is
short-sighted policy that is sure to react
in an injurious manner upon the whole
South. The older industrial sections
of the North are making liberal prepa
rations for representation in the World's
Fair, and the West is providing for the
occasion with a wouderful display of
prodigality. Money appropriated for
this purpose does not indicate extra
vagance in any respeci, but the indif
ferent policy that has been adopted by a
few of the Southern Spates must be
regarded as either parsimony or a fail
ure to appreciate the importance of the
"There is not, to our knowledge,
any other use to which a reasonable
appropriation could be devoted with
better results than in the provision of a
suitable exhibit of the resources aud
industries of any Southern State in this
great exposition. Advertising is the
life of industry in these days, and
States that desire to attract atteution and
promote development might as well en
close their borders with a high fence as
to neglect any good opportunity for
making their advantages known to the
world. The business man who does
not advertise confines his operations to
a narrow field, and this rule applies
equally well to a town, county or State.
The World's Columbian Exposition is a
huge advertising enterprise, and tho*e

"There is a peculiar nrcsfiy for the
South to utilize this opportnnity to the
fullest possible exteut. There are
thousands of people in the North, in
New England and across the ocean who
have invested largely in various enter
prises for furthering the development of
the South. Nine cut of ten of such
investors have nev^r been in the South
and will never visit that section of the
eountry. They have read and heard
much of the wunderful resources of the
South, its rapidly growing industries,
its mines, forets, mills and furnaces,
and when they go to Chicago next year
they will naturally expect to see a
Southern exhibit proportioned to the
wealth and resources of that section.
They are fully justified in such an ex
pectation, and the responsibility for
ful fii) ment rests wi h the South?with

Tue Bichloride of Gold Cure.
At Dwight Illinois, a small country
village, there are congregated twelve
; hundred men?all of tlietn being pa
tients of Dr. Keeley?who are under
! going the bichloride of gold treatment
' for their addiction to the whisky, mor
phine, opium, cocaine, or tobacco
habit Dr. Keeley bel it* vos that
I drunkenness is a disease, and that it
can bo cured by the use of medicine
the same as other diseases?scarlet
fever, diphtheria, and typhoid fever
?are cured. lie claims that he can
heal ninety five per cent of those who
go to him for treatment; and bis claim
is corroborated by statistics
The course of tieatment begins im
mediately on the arrival of the patient.
Indeed, should the case be rather a
bad one an attendant is at the insti
tute, where a diagnosis of h's case is
taken. lie is given a hypodermic
injection of red, pink, and white li
quids in the fleshy part of the arm
between the elbow and shoulder. No
matter how aggravated the case may
be, in two hours the patient expe
riences a decided change. If he de
sires whisky, it is give hi:n in moder
ate quantities, the amount being les-i
sened, until invariably at the end of
the third day he ceases taking it of
Iiis own volition.
A powerful tonic is also given, the
ingredients of which some say ate
arsenic, strychnine, belladonna, cin
chona, atropin, alcohol, opium, and
morphine. What it really does con-1
tain is not known. It is exceedingly
bitter, and its foundation is supposed
to be bichloride of gold. It produces
a vigorous appetite, brings refreshing
sleep to the patient's confused brain,
and entirely destroys the craving for
drink. It is taken every two houis
while the patient is awake.
Hypodermic treatment is given at
the institute four times a day. The
patien'8 are formed into a line in
which every one meets his neighbor
aR an equal. No partiality is shown.
The rich and poor touch elbows, and
every face beats the impress of a new
A word may not be amiss concern
ing the effect of the g'dd treatment
during a stay at Dwight and the
condition of the system at its comple
During the first three days peculiar
and trying sensations are experienced
The continual puncturing of the arm
lenders it sensitive and gradually aj
hard spot about the size of a walnut
appears. ir is only with an effort
that the patient can raise the arm from
the side; the eyes become affected, in
some cases to absolute blindness ; the
memory is impaired, as the followiug
incident in the case of one ptient will
show. Ile asked the manager of the
hotel if he could have a couple of
friends coin? to spend Sunday with
him. Being answered in the affirma
tive he requested a telegraph blank.
It was given him. He stood for half
an hour thinking, and handed the
blank back to the clerk, saying, "1
guess 1 won't telegraph now. I can
not think who it was to whom I want
ed to send the message."
Ina few days these conditions dis
appear and the benefits of the gold
remedy become apparent At the
end of the treatment a complete reno
vation has taken place. A person
addicted to alcohol has twisted aud
confused ideas on all subjects Keep
liquor away from such a person twen
ty-one days and he will be half dead:
A bichloride of gold patient after
twenty-one days' treatment seems to
have a new hold on life Iiis com
plexion is clear, the bloated and
careworn expression is gone, and
instead of being an irritable, unreason
able person, he becomes a pleasant
and agreeable companion.
If an habitual diunkard should ab
stain from whisky for this length of
time, disease might follow, or even
death. But with the gold cure the
abstinence brings vigor and courage,
aud the man becomes fully capable
of performing the work of life.
Such results as these are practical
and show something tangible to
work on
A stay of twenty-one days in
most cases is sufficient to effect
a cure. Others require four and five
The utmost freedom is allowed pa
tients. No restrictions are placed on
their liberiiy, the only requirement
being that all act the pait of gentle

One is not scorned lor what he has
done, but instead sympathetic hearts
and willing hands encourage and help
the weak of spirit to a future that un
folds itself toward a life of manhood,
sobriety, aud usefulness It is truly
said by many that this very fellow
feeling is of great help in making the
bichloride of gold pet form its work
Many peculia~ and interesting inci
dents are related showing the enthusi
asm of persons who have been there
for treatment. One generous man in
Illinois returning home put a standing
offer iu the local paper that any man iu
the town addicted to the use of liquor,
and desiring to he cured, might come
to him and he would furnish the mon
ey to get this treatment, with no seen
rity at all. He said that if aman had
nerve enough to go lie would risk the
pay iu any case. This gentleman i<
at the p ?sent time paying for the
treatment of a dozen men, and his
faith in bicloride of gold is unabated.
The Bichloride ol Gold Club of
Chicago has sent upward of three
hundred men to Dwight. The club
g i hers in men in all stages of drunk
enness and becomes responsible tor
their treatment; in no case so far
has their confidence in their treat
ment been shattered, and in evrey in
stall?e the outlay has been returned
shortly after the cure was made.
The e fleets of alcohol on the sys
tem from a physiological point of
view as gathered from the reports of
anthoi ities upon the subject and
presented in an outline in the circu
lais tf the Dwight Institution, are
substantially as fohuvs: Alcohol
taken into the body enters the blood j
from the stomach without digestion J
aud reaches every ii"ivc of the body, j
After having entered the blood, it
undergoes oxidation and is irorned
A simple experiment shows ite
work of the nerve tisanes. Take the
white of an egg, put it in a glass and

known as the preliminary step to
chronic aleoho?Mii. ( this con
dition alcohol is required to Rptir

so deadened have they become.
Tiie human system vili admit of
the oxidation of about six ounces o?
alcohol in tw -.v.y-four hours, but iti
effect when consumed by contact with
oxygen in the organs of the body is
the same as when burned in the lamp;

restore the waste by new material
from the blood, but if in condition a
moderate amount of alcohol be taken,
it seems to lesson the fatigue because
the albuminous portion of the tissues
becomes hardened; thus the habit
grows and the man becomes wholly
dependent upon stimulants.
)ii considering alcoholism a disease,
it is said that it permeates with a
wavelike tendency, rising and filling
in a manner characteristic to the
temperament of the individual, aud
as long as this continues, the craving
for a stimulant remains. The object
to be accomplished is the breaking
of this waveiike tendency. Once
broken, the patient is free for all timo
to come. Bichloride of gold ?.oee

A meeting is to be held shortly in
Chicago which will be the most remark
able gathering known in our history.
Delegites from every state in the
Union, all farmer patients of Dwight,
will meet to devise ways for making
it possible for the worst and most
helpless case to obtain the bichloride
of gold treatment. A grand gather*
ing it will be, and it cannot fail to do
a world of practial good.? By John
R Barlow in April Chaulauquan.
A Generous Brother.
In 1872 I was pastor of a church iu
a beautiful New Hampshire village.
Among the members was an elderly
farmer, residing seven miles from the
church. It was generally known that
he had some fifteen or eighteen thone*
and dollars in bonds and other securi
ties, besides a large and well stocked
farm. At his earnest and repeated
solicitations to pi each on some Sen
day afternoon in an old church near
his home, I finally consented. It was
an exceedingly warm Sunday in July*
I hired a horse and carriage, drove to
the old meeting house, and preached
to perhaps a hundred persons. After
the service the old gentleman invited
rac to call at his house. I did so, in
hope that he would pay my horse
bill or at least offer me a lit le food
for I had tasted nothing since break*
fast. In both I was disappointed.
As I was leaving I asked him if he
would give me two or three apples to
eat as I drove back home. He pro
duced four small russet apples.
Knowing his penurious disposition, I
asked, "How much shall I pay yoa
for these?' "I gueqs about three
cents," was the reply. "1 would
give 'em to you, but its getting late
fir apples, and they are mighty scarce
around here."
Solid Truth in This.
