The County Executive Committee.
We are authorized by the County
Chairman to announce that there will
be a meetingof the Democratic County
Executive Committee in the Town
Hall, Winnsboro, on Saturday the 7th
inst., at eleven ox-lock a. ra. A full
attendance is requested.
On the 23rd ult. Mrs. Cleveland
became twenty-two years of age. The
event was celebrated in a very qaiet
way ot the White House. May she
live to enjoy many more similar occasions.
Among the visitors at the Citadel
commencement we noticed the name
of Gen. R. R. Hemphill, of the Abbeville
3Iedium. Is it possible that he is
going to bury the hatchet on the Cita- j
President Cleveland lias referred
the oleomargarine bill, which recently
passed both houses of Congress, to
Attorney General Garland, in order
that he may pass upon its constitutionality.
It is possible the veto power
may be exercised.
There has been much excitement in j
Texas over the insult offered to Con- !
stil Brigham and the imprisonment of ;
Cutting by the Mexican authorities.
The Texatis are in a warlike spirit,
v but the difficulty will probably be settled
without bloodshed when the two
governments shall have entered into
With only two dissenting votes the
Georgia Democracy on the 28th ult.
nominated Gen. John B. Gordon for
Governor. The campaign just closed
has been one of the liveliest in the
history of Georgia politics. South
Carolina congratulates Governor Gordon,
and extends her best wishes.
There is still much talk in the
papers as to who burned Columbia.
Gen. Sherman admits in his "Memoirs"
that he did it and charged it upon
Hampton in order to prejudice his
people against him. This seems to ns i
to be conclusive enough. If anybody
does know Sherman certainly does,
and his testimony should settle it. It
is seemingly a question, however, that
will never cease.
The following paragraph is now
going the rounds of the press:
Ex-Governor Moses is reported to
be in a failing condition in the Massachusetts
penitentiary. He was deemed
at the age of thirty to be the most
brilliant and promising man in South
Carolina, and he is the only instance
in American history where an exGo
rernor became a common convict.
A leading exchange timely re narks
that if justice was meeted out there
would be many more of the llepubli^
-can crew in similar institutions.
The Greenville 2feics ami L?r. j
Smith, of Spartanburg, are in sympathy.
Smith thinks the South Carolina
College ought to have been burnt by
Sherman and his fellow-scoundrels.
The JY'eics thinks the College should
now be destroyed by hostile legislation,
under the pretext of affording
better education for the "masses".
Happily for the good name of the
State, neither Dr. Smith nor the News
has much following among her intelligent
The appeal for help from the Georgetown
negroes at this season of the
year is very unwise. Give them work
if this can be done, but let us not feed
them in idleness, unless we expect to
continue it for nine months. It is to
be feared that there will be suffering
next winter from the failure of crops
in some parts of the State, but this
should the more stimulate all to work
noio while yet it is summer. Many
crops can yet be raised?all the fall
and winter vegetables for instance.
Sweet potato slips can be planted.
The turnip season has hardly come.
Even corn will make good roastingears.
Doura corn has plenty of time
yet to mature. Besides, the low country
rivers abound in fish. In fact, few
will need any help next winter if
every one will do what he can now to
provide against suffering.

Oxe Dr. R. M. Smith, a candidate j
for the Senate, in Spartanburg county, .
is now catching it on all sides, for a
speech he recently made before a meeting
of farmers. He expressed regret j
that the South Carolina College was'
not burnt by Sherman when that ofli-1
cer ordered the destruction of Columbia.
This utterance is universally I
condemned (except, of course, by the ;
Greenville JVe?cs), and it has led to
some inquiry into Smith's record white
he was a member of the House in
Radical times. It is shown, by the
report of the Joint Investigating Com-.
raittee appointed in 1877, that Smith ;
was comiptible and corrupt.
It is pleasing to note that the press
of the Stale, including some paper?:
opposed to some featu' es in the present
conduct of the State College, express
disgust at his recent utterances, i
Every decent man in the State will!
rejoice at the defeat which the good
i people of Spartanburg will surely j
! visit upon this man Smith.
A "Washington correspondent says:
Senator Ridaleberger continues to i
I make himself very conspicuous in the j
' Senate. I saw him the other day
| rising nearly every live minutes, inter- i
i rupting speeches, putting funny points ,
of order, and doing everything in his ;
power to shock the dignity and deco- j
i rum of the Senate. Tliddlebergcr is
! is rattle-headed, often incoherent, and
| makes himself very obnoxious, but he
has a strange faculty of nearly always
| getting on the right side of every
i question, and while some of his points i
j may ue ioousii, yet lie has uttered a
< number of very disagreeable truths on
the floor of the Senate in regard to its
methods of conducting bitMness. Ilis
eyes are full and heavy; his nose is
large and straight, and a long brown
! moustasiiC and thick beard tall upon
his breast. He wore a close buttoned- ;
up frock suit, buttoned at its two
' lower buttons and left open iu such a ,
: way as to give the appearance of a;
| very expansive chest. A small yellow ;
i daisy was in his button-hole. His:
I trousers were gray and strapped over
very tightly-fitting, highlv-polished
boots; his voice is rich and deep, while j
! his gestures were extravagant and
thoroughly exasperating in their hick
of dignity. The Senators, for all the
world, looked like a pack of nice, discreet,
timid old women, who were
obliged to sit in a room and listen to :
the talk of a very bold, bad, reprobate
young woman who had no for
| proprieties. All of the Senators
| looked as if they were ready to pick
I up their skirts and run, screaming
| with protests of propriety, into the
i modest recesses of the cloak rooms
Riddleberger is ignored by all cf the
Senators with a grimness of shocked
propriety that is very funny. Not one
of them will reply to a single point he
makes, and it is very rarely that lie is
noticed by any of them, and then only
when he absolutely forces himself
upon their attention*.
From the above it is readily seen
that the days of the Virginia Senator
are about run in the United States
Senate. Justice, though slow sometimes,
comes at last.
The Piimary System.
The question of nominating State j
and Congressional officers by the pri-j
mary system is just now the subject1
of considerable discussion throughout
our State. The system has been adopted
by many of the counties as the
fairest and most satisfactory way of
nominating county officials, and it is
now sought to establish it as the plan
for nominating State and Congressional
officers. The system has worked
most satisfactory in .all the counties
where it has been adopted, but when
it is sought to extend it to all officers
we think there are grave questions
tf-hich present themselves and go far
to prove that the plan is not only impracticable,
but it defeats the very !
AVvin/kf rr? rtli 1 ^ ??An?V?f 4- r\ Ka
UUJtJlsl/ W IJllsli 1C> OUU^lIl LV UUUVIIJ^U. }
Take, for instance, oar own Congressional
district, and lei us see how the
the plan would work. At present'
Fairfield has a representation in the j
Congressional Convention of eight j
votes, while Greenville has only ten, '
or two more votes than Fairfield. Our
county polls about sixteen hundred j
Democratic votes, while Greenville:
polls, we think it safe to say, four'
times that many. 1: takes no
tion from this lo- show tliat if tlle^W^'
mary system should be adopted, Fa^ j
field, which now has nearlv the same i
representation as Greenville, would j
then ouly have about one-fourth the j
representation which she now has as j
compared with Greenville. The same |
decrease would follow in a comparison i
with other stronger counties. We j
make the supposition that Greenville
should present a candidate for Con- j
gressioual honors and Fairfield one, it j
will then be readily seen what advan-j
tage would be had by Greenville, i
County pride would come into play, !
and Fairfield would stand bu( a poor ;
show. It is useless to say that the :
Fairfield man could combine any vote :
of Greenville, for there is a satisfac-'
tion in voting for a man from your i
own county which would be so strong1
that in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred
the voter would vote for man
from his own county. Spartanburg
would have the same advantage, aud
by a combination with Greenville
could send the representation they desired
on every occasion. We think it
will be readily seen that our county
would have only one-fourth the representation
which she now has if the
primary system should be adopted.
The same state of affairs would exist
in the other weak counties. Besides :
it would be impracticable. If the
majority plan be adopted it would
necessitate several elections, and if the
plurality plan be adopted it would not
be the voice of the people, which Is
the very object for which the friends
of the system are contending.
The same objections present them- <
selves in the nomination of State
officers. The upper counties from this
large Democratic population could defeat
the nominees from the lower and
weaker counties, and the impracticability
would be even greater than in
the case of Congressional officers. We
think it is a question which should be
deliberately considered by our State
Convention before a decision is rendered.
At our County Convetion a
resolution was adopted favoring the
plan, but we presume our delegates
are open to conviction.
In commenting upon the resolution,
one of the speakers said that the peo- j
pie should nominate the officers and ]
not a convention of a little more than
three hundred voters. By the same i
argument we hardly think that our 1
eight delegates would be in a position | i

How Patriotism ami Christianity Should
Have Their Influence on the Voter.
Jlesars. Editors: The ballot-box is
the only safeguard of our country
Ant! it is a safeguard only when the
people put into office those who arc
worthy and well qualified to honur the
office in the administration ofits duties.
Every other consideration should be
subordinate to this. The office should
in every case seek the man, and not
the man the office. The a flairs of our
government, in all its departments,
are in the hands of those we put into
office; and the manner in which its
aflairo are administered, and its duties
performed, depend entirely on the
character of its incumbents. It is an
honor and a blessing to any country,
State or eor.nty to put into office sound,
safe men; men who can neither be
bought nor sold; men who cannot be
moved from the principles of justice
and equity neither by smiles nor
frowns; men of inflexible integrity
who have the nerve to dare to do right.
Such men arc to their constituents
what the light house is to mariners
tossed upon a dark and stormy sea.
And such beacon lights seem to grow
brighter as the storm becomes louder
and the night darker. Such men are
blessings to their age, and will receive
the admiration of their countrymen.
But when the elective frauchise is
perverted for selfish purposes, or in
any wav abused; when the voters
sacrifice their better judgment for
sinister ends, or through the intrigues
of electioneering; or when candidates
seek office for purely seltish motives,
or employ undue or dishonorable
means for securing their election, as
seeking to buy votes with whiskey, &c;
we may naturally expect a train ot
evils to follow; and in that train of
p.vils wfi mav exneet some or all of the
following: *1. Men elected (?)
are not the choice of the people. 2.
Becoming familiar with a very dangerous
precedent. 3. The office and
the constituents dishonored by men
occasionally too drunk to attend to its
duties. 4.'The. embezzlement of funds
occasionally for want of putting safe
men in office. 5. Some of our best
men, too high-toned to condeseud to
buy votes with whiskey, left at home;
while others are deterred from entering
the field dreading to run against
the whiskey interest. G. Whiskey is
becoming such a power in many of
our elections, that unless the people
speak in no uncertain sound through
the ballot-box, the day is not far distant
when the whiskey interest will control
our elections. 1 shall mention one
other evil by no means the least, i. e.,
the power of example upon our youth.
It must be a matter of no ordinary
interest to every patriot t*iat the character
of our government in the next
generation will depend in a large
measure upon the character we give to
our young men in this. The examples
of prominent men, especially when in
positions of distinguished honor and
trust, have a moulding influence upon
our young men. For"when the examples
of these are pernicious, our youth
will become familiar with regarding
them as not incompatible with the
dignity of distinguished positions.
And tlio higher the office the more
dangerous the example. We readily
condemn swearing, gambling, drunkenness,
<fcc., in the poor and obscure,
but when judges, governors, representatives
and senators lie drunk we are
inclined to think it less culpable in
them. The truth is their example is
far more pernicious to the interests of
y jban similar bad exaui fc
in tViA pOOl'J^^il .v."

but was not then published. I think
for myself, and no one is responsible
for my thought but myself. I may
say a little more next week directly in
regard to the dictates of Patriotism and
Christianity at the polls.

A Shocking Accident.
A shocking accident occurred near
Columbia this morning, whereby one
brother lost his life at the hands of
another. 'Lwo young sons of Dr.
B. W. Taylor had gone to the plantation
of their uncle, Col. Thos. Taylor,
to shoot doves. The elder, Ben, was
fourteen years old, and the younger,
Nat, about twelve. While attempting
to shoot a bird Ben killed his brother.
The sorrowful story was told to the
coroner's jury this evening by Col.
Taylor. He said that he had taken
the two boys to his plantation to shoot
and had left them together in a field.
About twenty minutes afterwards a
ploughman told him that Ben had shot
Nat. He met Ben coming toward him
to tell him that he had accidentally
shot his brother. Proceeding to the
spot where the shooting occurred, Col.
Taylor was satisfied, from the position
of the dead boy and of the two guns,
and from Ben's statements, that the
two had been very close together in
the grass and weeds five feet high, that
a dove flew np in front of Ben and circlcd
to his left, and as he wheeled and
fired at it, is'at Rose was struck in the
head by the full load, his wound causing
Instant death. There was 110 eye
witnesses except Ben, and he was so
unnerved by the accident that the jury
decided not to examine him, and upon
Col. Taylor's statement found a verdict
of accidental killing at the hands
of Benjamin Franklin Taylor. The
news made a deep impression in Columbia
and there is great sympathy
for Dr. Taylor and his family.?News
