Address or the Stale Executive
This week we publish a late ad
dress of the State Democratic Execu
tive Committee. We hope all our
readers will give it the attention it
deserves. The Committee has cer
tainly done an extremely sensible
thing in recommending the conver
u-v sion of the Democratic Clubs into
- permanent organizations. The next
*? election-involving a Presidential con
j test-will be one of vital importance
to us-more vital indeed than tongue
can well tell. It were infinitely bet
ter to keep steadfastly organized.
It will clearly be the duty of our
Senator and Representatives, when
they take their seats in the General
Assembly, to work for an appropria
tion sufficient to pay the Commission
ers, Managers and Clerks of Election,
and all olher necessary expenses in
y, connection therewith.
The Spekership of (ne House.
The Speakership of the House of j
Repiesentatives, which hr : been held
so brilliantly for three successive
terms by the Hon. J. C. Sheppard, of j
Edgefield, is now vacant. The strug
gle for this place will be sharp. The
most prominent candidates are James
Simons, of Charleston, George John
stone, of Newberry, E. B. Murray, of
Anderson, and Knox Livingstone, of
The Transit of Venus.
After being industrial, musical ard
artistic in Charleston this week, let
Edgefield be scientific next week, and
send a delegation to Aiken to see the
Transit of Venus. This great astron
omical event ?B to take place on
. Wednesday the Ctn December. Thc
delegation of German astronomers
and the delegation of French astron
omers are both in the field, vieing
with each other. Both delegations,
if we mistake not, have erected ob
servatories; and their telescopes and
instruments, lately arrived, are said
to weigh thousands of pounds. We
outside people, so it is said, will ob
serve nothing strange, as it is only by
means of powerful .instruments that
the Transit can be seen. The transit
occurred hst in 1874-eight years
a^o. Before that, it had not occur
red in 120} years. And after this,
it will not occur again until the ex
piration of 125} years.
The Greenville News warmly adi
vocates the election of E. B. Murra/.
Esq., of Anderson, to the Speadajy,
fcHWt?jML^^jHouse of Repr?sent?t! ?er.
^P^th? following from the News: "He
r will safely undergo the keenest scru
tiny of his character and qualifica
tions, and we do not know of a test
that can be properly applied to one
asking the office which he will not
?atiaiy. His natural ability is un
questioned, his integrity beyond ques
tion or doubt, and his long service as
a member of the Legislature has giv
en him an experience in parliamenta
ry law and usage which, combined
with Hs well known characteristics
of close, careful study, energy and
diligence, makes hie equipment for
the work of the Speakership com
plete and perfect."
Meeting of Co. " I," 24th S. C. V.
The 8urvivor8 of this gallant old
Company held an informal meeting
in one of the rooms of the ADYER
TISER building on Saturday the 18th
November. Mr. E. Keese was cho
sen chairman, and Mr. S. C. Cartledge
Secretary. Seventeen members were
present. The Roll of the old Com
pany was read and approved. On
motion of Capt J. P. Blackwell, a
Committee of seven, consisting of J.
P. Blackwell, Lieut. L. J. Miller, S.
C. Cartledge, T. P. Robertson, Jesse
Prince and J. W. Delaughter, was
' appointed to prepare a roll for the
Adjutant and inspector General. Co.
" K" was requested, by resolution, to
unite with Co. "I" at their next
meeting-December 28th, 1882. On
motion of Capt. Blackwell, the Rev.
E. Capers, as well as the commis3ion
d officers, was requested to be with
'I', on that day. On motion, a
of thanks was extended to Mr.
mas J. Adams, Esq., for the use
f the ADVERTISER room.
Mr. Jabez Lanier was the first man
and Mr. Press Anderson waB the sec
ond, lost by this company. Much in
teresting information was elicited;
and at the next meeting of the Com
pany we hope to give it to our read
ers in detail. The meeting adjourn
ed to meet on Thursday, 28th Decem
Andrew J. Hammond, Esq., was
the first Captain; L. B. Wever, sec
ond; James Tillman, third. Compa
nies "I" and "K" were both from
_ efield, and both in the 24th Reg
iment. Jabez Lanier died first; Pres
ton Anderson, second. Capt. James
Tillman, Marbry Lanham and Oscar
Quarlea, of Co. u I," nave died since
tue surrender. The Rev. Ellison Ca
pers, at first, was Lieutenant-Colonel
of the 24th Regt, and afterwards
Colonel; and he was made a Briga
dier towards the close of the la e war.
C. H. Stevena, of Charleston, was the
first Colonel, and A. J. Hammond
the first Major of the 24th.
The absence of ouraelvesin Colum
bia, and the unexpected detention of
Mr. Keese in Aiken, prevented our
reporting this interesting meeting in
our last issue.
Col. O? F. ( heatham Molds tbe
The question involvirg the legality
of the elections held for clerk of
court, sheriff and^broner in several
of the counties of the State came up
before the State Board of Canvassers
in Columbia on Friday last. Some
time ago A irney-General Youmans
announced it as his opinion that un
der the statute no election could be
held this year for clerk of court in
any other counties than Berkeley.
In epite of this opinion elections
were held in Hampton, Edgefield,
Horry and Kershaw Counties for
clerk of court.
In Edgefield County Mr. James C.
Williams, in Hampton County, Mr.
W. C. Causey, in Hon y County, Mr.
Julius Anderson, and in Kershaw
County, Mr. C. Clyburn, were candi
dates for clerk of the court at the re
cent election and were declared elect
ed by the county canvassers.
Before the board of cauvassers on
Friday, Clyburn appeared in person,
Messrs. Williams and Cheatham, the
contesting parties in Edgefield Coun
ty, in person and by counsel, and Mr.
Anderson, of Horry County, by coun
sel; Mr. McGowan Simkins appear
ing for Mr. Williama, and Col. F. W.
McMa.-'ter for Mr. Anderson.
In presenting the case of his cli
ent Mr. Simkins contended that the
Constitution fixed the term of office
for clerk of court at four years and
that the Legislature could rot inter
fere with it. Col. Cheatham, the
present incumbent of the office of
clerk of court for Edgefield County,
was elected in 1878.
Col. McMaster argued for the Hor
ry contestant upon the same general
line, and contended that the Legisla
ture could not change the term of of
fice of officers elected under the Con
stitution without violating their con
After discussing the points involv
ed in these cases, the board of can
vassers disposed of the matter by
adopting a resolution to the effect
that elections for clerk of court in
counties other than Berkeley were
not held in accordance with the stat
ute laws and are illegal.
The cases arising out of the elec
tions for clerk of court in Horry and
Edgefield Counties will very likely
be taken to the Supreme Court and
argued upon the constitutional ques
tions involved. The board of can
vassers were not unanimous in their
views upon the questions involved.
TABULATED STATE RETURNS.
Tbe County Constitutional Amend
The State Board of Canvassers
have been engaged for two weeks past
in canvassing the election returns
from the different Counties. It ie un
len^WflJraB?ftM-tt?.W' counties has
been defeated by about tent^ments
jiajority. The other two amen|wJ|
electors on account of conviction for
crime, and the holding. of the State
and Federal election at different times,
have been carried by large majorities.
The tabulated returns of the votes
cast in the various counties for the
candidates for State officers gives the
For Governor :

It will be seen from this statement
that Col. Thompson ran ahead of the
State ticket, receiving 71 more votes
than Sheppard and 2,437 more votes
than Mr. W. E. Stoney, who received
the next largest vote among the can
didates for State officers to that polled
for Mr. Sheppard. Gen. Manigault
received a larger majority over his
Greenback opponent than any other
man on the Democratic ticket, bis
vote being 51,645 in excess of that
polled for his opponent.
