Let Democrats Now Organize and
Keep Their Eyes Open and
_ - Their Amor On.
Last week we published the call of ]
County Chairman Bettie for a Con
vention on the 16th May. And we
beg oar people to remember his or
geat words apon the great importance
of thorough organisation and com
plete preparation for the conflict.
President, Congressman," State and
County officers are to be elected ; and
the Republican party, now dominant
in the national councils, and unscru
pulous1^ its methods, will use every
means within its power to retain its
ascendancy. Already the skeleton of
the party___iu our own County has
-'evinced sufficient evidence of vitality
to send a full delegation to Columbia.
From this time forth they will doubt
less endeavor to increase their strength
in the County, with the hope of car
rying the State for the Republican
' 'candidate for President, and perchance
the election of State officers, and a
Congressman in the 5th District. We
wonld admonish you not to be luke
warm in national politics; for the
election of a Democratic President
and the appointment of Federal offi
cials in our midst whose politics and
sentiments would be in accord with
our own, are considerations that should
command the earnest and undivided
support of every Democrat in the
And while this is true of Federal
politics,-we wool.d have you to keep
in mind the supreme importance of |
the maintenance of honest govern
ment and white supremacy in the
State. We hardly deem it necessary
to remind you of the flush days of j
"good stealing," when your legislat
ive balls were filled with ignorant,
corrupt negroes and thieving carpet
bagger?; when corruption was the
rule and honesty the exception ; when
taxation almost amounted to confisca
tion, and the public debt was in
creased from six to eighteen millions;
when society was subverted, and vir
tue and decency were subordinated
to vice and corruption ; and when
white men had no rights that carpet
baggers and negroes were bound to
respect. These matters are fresh in
the memory of all; and no man of |
sense or principle desires, or jpo?ld
eubmit to, a return of sucha state of j
The Democraticjjafty has now been
in power some/seven years, and by
its acts let us judge it. Taxation has
been reduced about two thirds; order
has been brought out of chaos, and
our securities that were nearly worth
less-are now selling above pai; our
fe?gislatiy?, Executive and Judicial
officers are capable and honesty the
courts are open to all of our citizens
where their rights may be maintained
and their wrongs redressed ; the in
crease in our manufacturing indus
tries has been almost magical In
deed within the last eight years the
increase in^manufactures, machinery
and improved agricultural implements
amounts to millions of dollars; and
our development is only fairly begun
in that direction ; our laws, as a
whole, have been wise and beneficial.
The disaffection caused by the pass
age of the Stock Law and the Regis
tration and Election laws has been,
we believe, entirely healed. The prac
tical operation of thes3 laws has de
monetr?ted their benefits and the wis
dom of their passage.
We now have no cause for local
dissension ; aud we trust every Dem
ocrat will take an interest in his club
meetings, and in the election of our
standard bearers. See that all Dem
ocrats that have come of age since
the last election are registered ; and
let all who have lost their certificates
have them properly renewed. Let
as have no bickerings, but let us close
up our ranks, and, with an elbow
touch all along the line, cast a solid
vote, when the.time comes, for huntst
government and Anglo Saxon civil
Cessation of Political Persecutions.
The United States Court is now in
session in Charleston, but no election
cases will be tried. On Thursday,
the 17th, a motion was made by Dis
trict Attorney Melton to dismiss all
cases on the docket involving charges
of violation of the election laws of
the United States. The motion was
granted and all the cases were strick'
en from the docket. In making the
motion, Mr. Melton reviewed the his
tory of the cases. He stated that
when he had come into office he found
about two hundred cases on the dock
et; realizing that all could not be
tried, he had obtained permission
from the Department of Justice to se
lect the most serious and discontinue
the others. The cases so selected
were worked up by Special Agent
Sanders, appointed for the purpose.
The result of the trials was one con
viction and one plea of guilty, the
other cases resulting in mistrials.
This is an event of considerable
importance to the people of South
Carolina in their feeling of security
at home, and in their relations to the
And simultaneously with this ces
sation of persecution of Democrats,
begins the prosecution of ex United
StateB Marshal Blythe and his Depo
ty Marshals, for the presentation of
horrible and unlimited fraudulent
claims. True bills have been found
against six of them; but, unfortu
nately, it is not probable that the
cases will be beard at this term of the

The?eople Whom we are Impov
erisbiog Ourselves to Educate!
The Lff-roes, whom we white peo
ple of South Carolina are impover
ishing ourselves to educate, met in
Convention in Columbia last week,
and, even more perhaps than in re?
construction times, evinced theirdead
ly and undying hatred to the white
race. The object of the Convention
was to elect eighteen .delegates to
the Republican Presidential Nomi
nating Convention to be held in Chi
cago on the 3rd June. Miller, a yel
low man of Beaufort, whose duty it
was to call the body to order, made
an opening speech of bitter and
threatening malice. The convict and
perjurer Smallf was made Chairman.
Edgefield County was represented by
the following delegation : Paris Sim
kins, David Harris, ]r., Bristow Yel
dell, Alec Raiford and David Gra
ham. The Arthur banner was the
one that seemed to wave most promi
nentiy. ; Paris Simkins introduced
the following, which was Adopted :
Resolved, That in view of the embar
rasaing circumstances growing out of
the aRsaFsination of the late lamented
President James A. Garfield and the
extremely delicate position in which
the present incumbent President Ches
ter A. Arthur was placed, we, t1 e.
Republicans of South Carolina, in
Convention assembled, do be-rtily
endorne the administration ot Presi
dent Arthur as wise, economical aud
just, without reproach or stain, and
perfectly harmonious in all its depart
The delegates at large chosen by
this Convention are : E. M. Brayton,
Robert Smalls, W. N. Taft and Sam
The following District delegates
were elected :
1st District-J M. Freeman, col

white, of Oranpeburg.

of Edgefield; S. E. Smith, colored,

Perhaps few persons outside of the

aware of its extensive membership

C. T. Scaife, T. J. Taylor and G. W.
Gardner among the delegates ap
pointed from this county to the South
ern Baptist Convention which will
convene in Baltimore early in May.
The whisper has reached our ears
that the Baptist Church in this place
will pay their pastor's expenses to the
convention. This is a move in the
right direction, and we hope the
churches of which Messrs. Scaife aud
Taylor are pastors will raise funds to
pay their expenses also. It will help
the pastors and through them their
Churches, end we hope their chuiches
will send them. The cost of the tr ip
will not exceed thirty dollars.
Pastors, particularly those of coun
try churches, seldom receive from
their congregations more than is nee
e3sary for the actual wants of them
selves and families, and when the
duties of their high calling demand
their attendance et the high courts of
the church, as representatives of their
separate pastoral charges, the churches
have no more right to expect them
to pay their expenses out of the lim
ited amount usually doled out to
them, specially for pastoral services,
than a State has to ask the represent
atives of the separate counties to de
fray their own expenses as members
of the Legislature ; and ecclesiasti
cal assemblies are as necessary for
the good of each separate pastoral
charge as the Legislatureis for the
good of each county in the State, and
the necessity of repreteutation should
be considered as equally Irmperative.

hear from you on this subject, Sen?
ator : ? ,
We are informed by representative
men from Edgefield county, that there
is a iively agitation of the subject of
building a connecting line of railroad
from Greenwood to Edgefieiil Court
Houfie, with a view of extending it
to Aiken by the line that is already
graded from Edgefield, by way of
Trenton : thus making a direct line
to Charleston. It is claimed that it
will be forty miles nearer to Charles
ton, than either of the other linea, by
Augusta or Columbia, from Green
wood. , The distance to Edgefield

John C Calhoun years ago, as design
ed by nature for the location of a
railroad, and that it would be built,
That, prophesy is about to be fulfilled.
It is a level ridge from beginning to
end without, a running stream across
it lt. will develop a large and fertile
section of intervening country, and
when connection is made at Edgefield
it. will utilize the road already graded
from that, point to Aiken and not
likply t'> n? of Rerviee in any other
connection. We have often called
the attention of our friends at. Edge
field to the importance of making
this connection, and now the matter
in to be urged upon them in a more
substantial way ; if they are wise
they will not lose the opportunity of
effecting it. The South Carolina
Railroad should lend a heir ing hand,
and so should Charleston lt. would
bring into enmpptition a third line at
thin point of intersection of two great
rival lines. The importance of con
necting at this point is enhanced by
the prowpecta of an extension across
the mountains to connect, with the
great Systems o! road running north
west and northeast. Our Edgefield
friends need rely no longer on any
other outlet. ; if any other waR proba
ble it moet be a very remote period,
while this p within their reach, and
can be accomplished at an early day.

The Commonwealth of South Car

pecially when applied to viivavocc vo

As to majorities, "Savannah River
asks the question : " Would that b
Democratic, to threw out a half doz
en and run two favorites?" I an
ewer yes ; it has the sanction of hir.1
precedent, in the manner of electioi
of President of the United Sta!ei
when any one fails to receive a ma
jority vote in the Electoral College
But I would ask whose favorites wouic
be left out? A plurality vote hat
not made them the first nor eeccuc
choice, 80 they suffer LO detriment
thereby. But they have theadvan
tage and satisfaction of a second
choice, which is certainly worth some
thing. I rea6Btrt what I said in my
former communication, that a nomi
nation by majority ?8 always Demo
cratic, and add that it is a declaration
which cannot be controverted. It ia
an established principle in the equi
ties of politics, and hae the sanction
and vindication, as a sound trinciple
of democra y, of that great states
man, brilliant acholar and noble pa
triot, Thcmaa Jefferson.
But "Savannah River" aays, "No;
the people do not want a Constitution,
al Convention; consequently they do
not want the majority plan, because
it goes along with the Convention
plan." That sounds to me more like
the cry of the demagogue than the
utterance o? the statesman. Thejr?eo
ple of Edgefield County are too in
telligent not to be able to draw a ^dis
tinction between Convention and pri
mary majoiity. But again, he sayB
that the people want the plurality.
Now how does he know what the peo
ple want? Is he their oracle? Or
ia it the power behind the throne?
Or is bethe Great High ' Priest, to
whoiii the people have made confes

divine what the people desire as to
these mattera. They are competent
io speuk for themselves, and will
sp -ak when the proper time comer.

Senator Butler does not display
many symptoms of being frightened

The population of South Carolina
is 2 per cent, of the United States

The Marquis de Louisville, now in

preesed by corsets, while his shoul
dere are disproportioued by overpad

quite unsafe foi him tc encounter a

Gen. Grant is said to be thoroughly
in earnest in his efforts to restore har
mony in the Republican party, but
he wants to so shape it that the party
will harmonize on Gen. Grant as its
candidate for the Presidency. He is
said to be already ac?vely at work
through friends to win the support of
the Grand Army and other soldier
organizations. The work is not ex
pected tobe done in the primaries,
but his,hopes are based on the proba
\ft?t?tj eft a deadlock at Chicago, and
he wants to carry the key in case of
such an event.
An exchange says that the elec
tions for delegates to the National
Republican Convention have so far
indicated that Arthur, Logan and
Edmund? stand no chance cf a nomi

tween Blaine, Lincoln and a dark
horse, with chances in favor of one of
the two latter. Blaine always has a
strong following, but is never strong
enough to be nominated.
