The author, T. P. Slider, E~q, has
kindly sent to this office a neat little
pamphlet entitled " Memoirs of Gen.
William Butler, including a Brief J
. Sketch of his Father and Brother, [
who fell in the Revolution at Cloud's
Creek, Edgefield District, S. C." In
; addition to . the Sketch proper of |
Geo. Wm. Butler, these Memoirs con
tain incidents, anecdotes and events
connected with the early history of J
Edgefield District which the youth
of our county especially ought to read.
Among other. Edgedeld ni mee occur

Since our last issue the State elec
tion has boen held in Ohio, and th
result waa a Republican victory by
plurality of over 17,000 votes. If
this were the presidential year, this
defeat of the Democratic party would
be Of some significance, as indicating
the popularity or unpopularity of
President Cleveland's administration
AB it is, however, the oil'year in poli
tics, Ohio has simply returned to the
mire of republicanism. And now that
thia agony is over, all eyes are direct
ed to New York ; and upon the pros
p?cta there, the New York Sun speaks
" Now that the Ohio election is over
and its effect upon the minds of our
citizens has been produced, we are oil
prepared to take a distinct and satis
faetory view of the prospect here in
"We know that the Democratic
ticket headed by Hill and Jones ought
to be elected, and we believe that it
will be. The reasons for this faith
are simple and cogent.
" The Democracy of this State is
thoroughly united. There is no fae
tiona quarrel which diminishes the
Democratic voto. That vast number
of.citizens who last fall voted for
Blaine, have come back, and are
among the most enthusiastic support
ere of Hill and Jones. This is a fact
of the highest moment.
,J Moreover, a great service has been
rendered to Governor Hill by the at
tacks which his enemies have now
made. They have accused him of
having had discreditable dealings
with Mr. Tweed some fifteen years
ago, and a great display of illusive
evidence has been made to sustain this
accusation. Only yesterday a num
ber pf journals that oppose his elec
tion devoted a great portion of their
apace to fae similes of checks and re
ceipts which are supposed to support
it. A more extravagant, malicious,
and unjustifiable assault was nev r
made upon the good name of a public
officer. There is nothiug in Mr. Hill's
history, either fiftsen years ago or
since, which should lead any patriotic
citizen to withhold his friendship
from him. There were many men,
Republicans as well as well as Demo
crats, whom, in the days of his power,
Mr. Tweed was wont to use for hiH
own purposes; but heuever used Mr.
Hill. As a member of the Democrat
ic party Hill supported those meas
ures which the party deemed wine
and necessary ; and among them there
were at times measures which Mr.
Tweed favored and desired ; but in
all of these cases there is not a single
instance in which Mr.Hill acted from
a corrupt motive j or supported any
measure of Tweed's for any other rea
BO'a than his own conviction that it
was for the public interest. This is
demonstrated by a careful study of
his whole record ; and the people who
really look into these things are sure
io be convinced of it. The reaction
from this attempt of.his enemies will
undoubtedly prove of very great ad
vantage to Mr. Hill. In fact, it forms
one of the reasons why we expect his
Tho jvoos and Cornier thinks (h
matter of ? (Beer? of th? State acUnj
as counsel in criminal ca*w?, of fomucl
consequ' nee, that it speaks out as /ol
" This matter is so important tba
it would not be out of the way fo
the State Convention to notify all can
didates for nomination for; the offia
of Lieutenant Goyernor that they an
expected to keep out of the Crimina
Courts, as lawyers, phould they be
come the coriHti! utionat successors o
the Governor. They who are no
willing to assent to this, for the sake
'.f maintaining the dignity of the of
fice and of keeping it beyond reproach
are not likely to-be nominated by ?
Damocratic Convention. We say fur
ther that, while thc objections are noi
of the same class, we think it unwise
and ill-judged for Senator Butler tc
take part in the defence of the Edge
Geld prisoners, or of any other per
sons accused of violating the crimina'
laws of the State. It is almost im
possible for jurors to avoid being in
Silenced by their knowledge and ap
predation of Gen. Butler's position,
and that influence and position should
not be cast into the scale either in fa
vor of a criminal or against him."
Still Another State Ticket.
Columbia Cor. Augusta Chronicle.
COLUMBIA, Oct. 17.-The tempora
ry suspension ol' the "new deal" cry
does not prevent political predictions
of future results. The following tick
et is said to be among the possibili
ties: Governor, Hon. John Teter Rich
ardson; Lieutenant Governor, Hon.
D. S. Henderson ; Secretary of State,
Hon. J. N. Lipscomb; State Treasu
rer, Hon. W. C. Coker; Comptroller
General, Hon. W. E. Stoney; Attor
ney General, Hon. Stonyarm Wiluon;
Adjutant and Inspector-General, A.
M.Manigault; Superintendent of Ed
ucation, Hon. A. Coward. Rumors
are afloat in some political circles that
a foreign mission will be tendered a
prominent South Carolinian at an
early day, and that this appointment
will result in the promotion of others
now holding high and responsible
State positions. This inlormation
comes so direct and from so reliable ?.
source that I am almost tempted to
name the positions and the men, but
I have learned from experience that
it is better to withhold names when
there is any doubt of the correctness
of the information, and, as I have not
been able to have these rumors con
firmed, I only mention them in agen
eral way. RICHLAND

11 Ohio:election, the News and Courh
- considers it a needed -leeson. . Tl
I election was peculiar in two respect;
? Colored voters in large numbers vote
r the Democratic ticket, and Prohib
. tionists and Germans in large nun
a hers voted for the Republican cand
3 dates. ; This'is reversing the usn?
j order of things, but, in the North, th
white vote is more important by fa
j than the colored vote, and the ne'
I recruits were not sufficient to-conni
? erbalance the losses by change c
front. There was a confident expects
tion that the Prohibitionists who ah
I stained from voting for Dr. Leonar
. would join tbe :Democrats by way c
avenging themselves ..pon thc Repub
, beans. The calculators were at faull
, however, and, iu spite of the heavi
ness of the Prohibition vote, whicl
was expected to be drawn mainl;
from the Republican ranks, the Demo
crats were unsuccessful.
There will be no lack of explana
tiona and excuses. The weather wil
come in for a part of the blame, ant
the lavish us? o? money by the Re
publicans will be alluded to in ni
gentle terms. But the Democrats ar*
usually readier to brave the weathe:
. than the Republicans are, and tin
Democrats, it must be confessed, us<
at elections as many dollars-silvei
or otherwise-as they can beg or bor
row. The ruddy tinge imparted t(
the canvass by Mr. Sherman was noi
sufficient to color the result. Then
is something beyond and behiud these
things, and it is wisest to state il
frankly in order that tho rock ahead

Our conviction ip that the Democrat*
Were defeated in Ohio because, in thc
opinion of the voters, they did nol
deserve to be continued in power. It
in charged that the Legislature wai
corrupt, and so extravagant that in
creased taxation is necessary. The
repeal of the license law resulted ic
depriving the counties of a gros? rev
enue of two million dollars a year, so
that the incorporated cities were com
pelled to issue bonds to raise money
for the support of the infirmaries and
polico. It is undeniable that the Dem
ocracy signalized their victory last
year by casting out Senator Pendle
ton-the father of civil sorvice reform
and an accomplished gentleman-aud
electing in his stead Mr. Payne, who
has no other distinction thau such as
is given him by his auriferous con
nection with the Standard Oil mo
nopoly. The legislative hinges v/ere
Ireely oiled when Mr. Payne was elect
ed. This and the open hostility to
Judge Thurman may well have dis
gusted the quiet and disinterested
Democratic voters of Ohio. It was
evident to them that the State Gov
ernment was run by machinery, and,
in the North and West at least, there
are Democrats who think for them
selves and will not blindly vote for
party candidates who are uuworthy
in character or conduct.
Ohio ie a warning. The Democrat
ic defeat in that State will be followed
by Democ.atic defeats in other States,
unless the Democratic masses make
their wishes and determination known

sneer at the relorm of the civil ser
vice and hint that Preeident Clevo

party. 'Mr. Cleveland to day is strong

the extent of the Republican majority
in Ohio if President Cleveland had
worked the public offices in the in

in the manner iu which the offices

occupations of steering steamboats,
keeping a country stoie and acting
as auctioneer in the small Western
