We deem it our du'y to adyise
cur people sgainst the organization
of Silver Clubs. Il is nothing more
nor less than an insidious attempt
to break up the democratic party.
It makes no difference from how
high a source such a scheme
emanated, it is fraught with dan.
ger. To desert the old ship upon
whioh we have made so many pros
perous voyages because its com
mander (soon to be relieved) prov
ed recreant to his trust and his du
ty, would make us as great traitors
as. be. Let us stand to pur colors !
The Piedmont Headlight says:
"There is goiDg to be some high
kicking in this State when the tax
collector opens his office Dext fall.
The assessments will remind you
of old reconstruction days." Now,
what docs this signify? Be it re
membered that the Piedmont Head,
light is a Refoimer of reformers.
As the election of the new board
of county pensions is a \hry impor
tant matter, andas two of i's mern,
hers are to be selected by the old
Confederate soldiers, we would sug
gest that the Confederate Camps in
the county should take some action
in the matter. Such action should
be had at an carly day as the
meeting of the oid soldiers takes
place on the first Monday in April.

ox DEMOCRATIC DUTY.
To the Members of the State Dem
ocratic Executive Committee:
Pursuant to the call of the Dem
ocratic National Comm Uee direct
ing the selection of delegates from
each of the several States to assem
ble in Chicago on July 7th next,
for the purpose of nominating can
didates for Prssident and Vice
President of tho United States, the
Democratic State Executive Com
mittee :s hereby requested to meet
in the city of Columbia on Tues
day, tho 7th day of April, 1896. at
the bou: of 8 o'clock p. m., for the
purpose of taking the necessary
steps looking to the reorganization
of the Democratic party, and to the
assemblage of the State convention
to elect delegates to the national
convention as provided for by ar
ticle IV of the constitution of the
party. Recognizing as I do the
wide differences of opinion as to
the details of party policies and
party management, yet fully alive
to the present emergencies upon
the Democracy, we cannot but re
alize that the party's purposes and
, successes ?.au only be attained by
discipline and organization. As
understood by us, the hope of- the
' country is centered in the Demo
( eratic party. Its principles, which
1 have been handed down from Jef
. fersou and Jackson, are absolutely
necessary to maintain the equal
rights of all of the States and to
' secure the wise and economical
^ government of the cou ifry What
l ever differences lhere may be as to
the application of the general prin
! ciples for which the party stands,
all must agree that only by harmo
ny, concession, and loyally to the
party, can greit ends bc accom
plished. The representatives of
this State should, therefore, goto
; the national convention with a fix
ed determination to meet their
brethren in a spirit of unity and
1 with a view to harmony. United
1 aud in perfect sccord, we ought to
be able to continue in conti ol of
, the government. With a deter
. ruination to introduce harmony, we
can gain much in the direction of
our owu desires as to the applica
tion of Democratic principles; we
. can gain nothing except the defeat
organize if we cannot have our
particular views carried out. How
1 ever we may differ as to details
with our brother Democrats from
other sections of the Union, we all
know that the Democratic crped
aud a Democratic control of the
government are far better for us
than anything we may expect from
