The Greenville Reflector

a wagon load of acorns. It
would be a difficult matter to

where the woods are full of
berries in Summer and acorns
The anti-football cry is just
now claiming the attention of
the public. Ex-champion Cor
bett has a letter in Sunday's
New York World in which he
asserts and quite clearly
proves, that of the two, foot
ball is more brutal than prize
fighting. The Monroe Journal reports
quite an amusing incident. A
father and son, each trying to
get away from the other, join
ed the Wallace shows while it
was in that city. Both parties
were much surprised and dis
gusted to fi 1 that the other
was on the rin,
The gro-. tii of the popular

every direction. There are
now indications that Montana
and Id iho will produce enor
mous quantities of gold in the
next few years.
Several re;v Ats of the Advance
have informed 'is they construed the
article in that j.-per ot Oct. 21st just

ticing his editorial in last week's
issue. Since h; insists we reproduce
his first editorial which provoked the
reply, giving k in lull, leaving our
readers to judg: whether or not we
told the truth. We call your espe
cial attention to the sentence which
contains the following clause: "which
the advocates ol silver, socialism and
anarchy have been dinning into the
people by just such falsehoods for
years." We only said the Advance

it with you to say whether or not we
"The friends of the free coinage
proposition are never so happy as
when they are able to make other
people unhappy. That organ ot the
silver trust, the Philadelphia Ameri
can, in a leading editorial in its issue
of October 9th gleefully announces
that wheat has fallen 14 cents a bush
el since September 1st, and proceeds
to argue that the advance in farm
products, stocks and everything else
was merely temporary. The fact is
that wheal on October 9th was just
4 and 5 8 cents per bushel lower
than it was on September 1st, the
fall being exaggerated just 300 per
cent, in the mad effort to keep up the
dissatisfaction which the advocates ol
silver, socialism, and anarchy have
been dinning into the people by just
such lalsehoods, for years. The re
ports of the Nev Ycrk market show
that No. 2 red wiv-at, which was
worth $1.03 o. September 1st, was
worth 98 7-8 cei (.-. mi October 9th."
The Wilson .advance. October
Since we have -hown the editor ol
the Advance h.-. error, it will be a
graceful thing fo hur to admit it in
the next issue o: his paper and con
fess that the two ir.sinuative articles
he wrote were itirely uncalled for.
It never hurts a gentleman to confess
it when he find., he is in error.
Wilson Times, Nov. 12.
The above article appearing
in the Times of the 12th re
quires a careful perusal. As
the Times states it would be
the graceful thing to acknowl
edge our error, if they had
siuavn it. We however fail
to see wherein we have erred
when we claimed that the
Times was wrong in saying :
"According to the Advance the
advocates ot the free coinage ot silver
are to be classed with the socialists
and anarchists. When
ever you (farmers) want comfort why
just think of what wheat is bringing
and imagine your couon is selling in
proportion, but don't allow yourself
to think. It you do, the advaci,
will hang you on the gibbet and say
to the world : "Behold an anarchist."
Times, Oct. 22.
We repeat, that the article
upon which the Times bases
its comment does not justify
the language they employ.
We quoted an editorial from a
Philadelphia paper, in which a
manifest misrepresentation of
fact appeared, and commenting
upon the same, we showed
wherein they had exaggera
ted and proceeded to say that,
"the 'fall in wheat was exag
gerated just 300 per cent, in
the mad effort to keep up the
dissatisfaction which the advo
cates of silver, socialism, and
anarchy have been dinning
into the people, by just such
falsehoods, for years." It will
be noted that we nude three
distincts classes, vis : 1st, advo
cates of silver, 2nd, socialism
and 3rd, anarchy.
But this was . not all. The
Times, speaking of the far
mers, says: "but don't allow
yourself to think. If you do
the Advance will hang you on
the gibbet and say to the
world : 'Behold an anarchist.' "
Have they any ground upon
which to make such a state
ment, when immediately fol
lowing the article that they
pretended to quote this edito
rial was printed.
stop and think.
Nothing spreads more rapidly than
bad news. The cry of hard times
has been used by politicians as a
campaign fund, for year alter year,
until they have impressed the people
with a dread, not to be shaken off
by any ordinary force of circum
stances. Every human being is more
or less dissatisfied with his present
condition, and it is an easy matter
for a smooth tongued politician to
make him believe that this or that
cause is responsible for his discomtort,
whereas, it would take only the aver
age amount of intelligence, properly
exerted, to satisfy any reasonable man
ol the fact that no one cause can
bring about any given effect.
To get out of the rut, our people
must first of all, set up a little
think shop of their own. Listen
carefully to arguments, on all sides,
then go home and digest them, us
ing the salt of common sense as fla
voring. Once form this habit and it
will be a hard matter for any speaker
to lead you far astray. Advance,
Does this sound like we
would condemn a man for
thinking? Do we not advo
cate, not only thought, but
careful, painstaking medita
tion ? And again how about
those who differ with us ? Is
there any evidence in our col
umns as to what we think of
them? surely there is, read:
'We have never believed that the
free coinage of silver would correct
the evils which now exist, but while
such is our opinion, we accord to
every individual the right, which we
claim for ourself, 'to think as he
pleases.' If we do not agree, why.
the only thing that remains is to wait
and see what the future has in store
We are all but human, and 'to err is
human.' " Advance. Oct. 28.
On the whole, after careful
ly going over the entire
ground, we fail to find any
reason ior retracting anything
that has been said.

Let these be laid aside, and what do

since its redemption from its enemies
in 1872 has about laced and gone
back in sight of the scenes of 1868,
as a return of the republican party to
power. It is the repetition ol history
The white men who lent helping
hands in this matter did not foresee
the evil 'esults that have followed the
success of fusion. They dreamed of
better things and strove with the in
spiration of honest convictions, in
most instances, to obtain it. They
were deceived by a desert mirage.
There is not a general disposition to
censure those who as plain citizens
contributed to this state of affairs be
cause no wrong was intended. But
hereafter the public judgment will be
different. Having seen the evil fruits
ol republican government as a result
of fusion there is no excuse for white
men who respect themselves and their
families and who prefer white to black
government, to again form a combi
nation with republicans to defeat their
own flesh and blood. It is not hard
to forgive mistakes of judgment, but
when men persist in doing what they
have found by experience to be
wrong, then there i no place for for
