THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION.
A FULL ATTENDANCE.
THE HALF-AND-HALF POLICY REFLEC
The Republican County Convention
of Newberry County met in the Court
House Thursday, the 1st instant. Nine
ty-four delegates were present, all col
ored except the celebrated Dr. Con
stantia, formerly of this place, now prac
ticing his profession on the government
reservation near Mayhinton. Where
this fellow came from nobody seems to
know; whether German,Italian,French,
American, or what, is equally a myste
ry. He is a conjuring doctor, and for
conjuring snakes out of a bewitched
negro he has no equal. This lone cau
casian, among the ninety and four,
looked like a poor man at a frolic. His
associations are entirely with the color
ed people, and the partner of his bosom
is of the ebony hue. But to the Con
venticn. James A. fienderson, ex
legislator, called the meeti.ig to order
and explained its object. He apologized
for the shortness of the call by saying
that the Exeeutive Comm'ee wrote
him a letter the 15th of June. ,rdering
him to call a Convention, but that some
body booked the letter out of the mails;
and that he only got the order six days
ago-too late to publish the call in the
The Convention was organized by
electing Jno. T. Henderson, ex-legisla
tor, Chairman, and A. L. Snead, Secre
tary. While awaiting the report of the
Committee on Credentials, James W.
Eichelberger, Coroner, was called on
for a speech. He said the Convention
had three matters to attend to: 1st, the
settlement of the question as to who is
County Chairman. Js. A. Henderson
claimed the position by appointment of
the State Executive Committee, he
himself claimed it by virtue of having
been elected to it by a County Conven
tion held in the Hoge School House,
the 20th of April last; 2nd, the election
of three delegates each to the State and
Congressional Conventions; 3dly, to
consult as to their policy in the coming
campaign. On this point he expressed
himself quite freely. He said that he
was glad to see so many Republicans
together in convention; that eighteen
months ago he had no hopes of ever
seeing such a thing again. The Demo
rats, he said, have broken their pledges
made to the colored people in 1876
they promised them representation, but
had not given it. At the Democratic
County Convention the 25th of May
last, a delegation of colored men came
from a colored Democratic Club in
Township 6 and asked admittance,
which was refcased, the delegates being
merely invited to "complimentary seats
on the floor of the Convention," a priv
ilege which belonged to every private
citizen of the County. They were ig
noed. He declared it his intention to
vote for a ticket composed of colored
men and the best white men of the
County, and no other-would support
no ticket composed chiefly of either col
or. Have the majority in the County,
but are willing to give the whites equal
representation. In favor of Gov. Hamp
ton's renomination, but wanted the col
ored people to be represented on the
State ticket. The above is a fair skele
ton of his speech. It was loudly cheer
Lawrence Jones, ex-deputy Sheriff
under Carrington, was then called for.
He too was glad to see the arge num
ber of delegates and spectators. Just
after the "supposed disastrous defeat of
1876," thought the Republican party
would never rally again, but it has.
Always thought the offices should be
filled by colored people and fair-minded
Democrats. Opposed to running a
straight-out Republican ticket. Could
elect it, but would be counted out. The
Democrats say we have taught them a
lesson in voting and counting that they
intend to profit by. This is not a "white
man's country" any more than a black
man's. If they c'ouldn't induce Demo
crats to run on their ticket they would
rin a straight-out Republican ticket,
and would have the honor of electing
it, even though it should be counted
out. No use for those colored people
who deserted the party in 1876. In
favor of Hampton for Governor, because
it would be the height of folly to oppose
him. Jones' speech was very much in
the spirit of Eichelberger's, only a little
more so. At its conclusion the Con
vention adjourned for a half hour to see
R. B. Elliott off on the down train.
After recess the following delegates
were elected: For the State Convention
-Rev. Harrison Keitt, B. B. Boozer
and James W. Eichelberger; to the
Congressional Convention - Thomas
Keitt, Isaac Robertson and James Sims.
The delegates to the State Convention
were instructed to recommend the ap
pointment of James WV. Eichelberger as
County Chairman for the next two
What now do those Democrats think
who have been saying that the Radical
party was dead? Judging from Thurs
day's proceedings it is a very lively
corpse. It is not dead. It will require
a greater blow than that of 1876 to kill
it. The meeting Thursday should stir
up the Democrats to renewed work. To
lose the fruits of our victory would be
dreadful. But such a thing is not to be
thought of. We must carry the election
at any cost.
We see the enemy's game. It is to
disintegrate the Democratic party by
..nnianr a mixerd ticket. We don't
in their attempts to overthrow and ruin
our regenerated State, may the just in
dignation of the white people of this
County be poured out on his devoted
head. It is very evident that from some
cause or other the Republican party has
recently received new hope and fresh
courage. Some influence is at work
among them. Both Eichelberger and
Jones in their speeches distinctly said
that not long ago they thought the party
was completely demoralized, so much
so that they never expectedto see ano
ther Republican Convention. This is
one fact. Another is, that at the Re
publican County Convention the 20th
of last April, only fifty-three delegates
were present, and these dwindled down
to half that number before the Conven
tion adjourned. Only five townships'
were represented. That Convention
met down in Gravel Town in an out-of
the-way place. The delegates seemed
to be "at sea," without hope. They
discussed no party issues; the word
"Democrat" was heard only a single
time, the word "Republican" not once.
They resolved "That it is not the pur
pose of the colored people to renew the
antagonism heretofore existing between
the white and colored people of New
The Convention Thursday was in
striking contrast to all this: every town
ship was represented; ninety-four dele
gates were present, only. six less than
the full number, and every delegate
stuck out to the last. The Convention
met in the Court House as in days of
yore. The delegates stood squarely on
the old Republican platform; their pol
icy was distinctly announced they de
mand representation, in other words
they demand offices for colored people.
They say if no Democrats will run on
their ticket they will put out a :'rnight
black ticket, and acknowledge that the
only reason they want any Democrats
on their ticket is to prevent their being
counted out. In view of these facts it
behooves the Democrats to wake up
thoroughly; to organize completely; to
stand squarely shoulder to shoulder,
laying aside all jealousies and divisions,
and to present a bold front to the ene
my. The Democrat who now dallies
is a dastard.
ARREST OF JoHN J. CARRINGTON.
Two or three weeks ago Post Master
R. W. Boone left Newberry ostensibly
for the Springs; but such was not his
object. Mr. Boone had a requisition
from the Governor of Tennessee, for
Carrington's arrest on a charge of mur
der. The arrest was made July 25th.
The history of this man, gaThered chief
ly from his own representations, is that
e is a native of Halifax County, Va.;
when a boy the family removed to -
Couty, Tennessee. When the war
broke out he joined the Confederate
army, belonged to a company known
as N. B. Forrest's escort; was present
at the fight at Fort Pillow, and was cap
tured shortly afterwards; took the oath
of allegiance to the U. S. Government,
and was released. After the war re
turned to Tennessee; there in August,
1866,killed a man by the name of Jones.
f this affair there are several versions
-one self-defence, another that Jones
insulted him and he shot him for it, in
tending only to wound him. He fled,
and the Governor of Tennessee offered
a reward of $500 for him, the relatives
of the deceased offering another $500.
He next turned up in North Carolina,
where he worked a year or two on a
railroad. Came to Columbia, S. C., in
1868. While there looking for work
he met with Henry H. Blease, of this
place, at that time having a branch
business in Columbia, and Mr. Blease
brought him to Newberry and put him
on his farm; he worked there two
years. After that he was employed as
a' clerk in Mr. Blease's tin-shop in town.
Leaving that position, he clerked awhile
for W. H. Webb. Then he set up a
bar-room in "Sling Alley," and about
the same time received an appointment
as mail agent on the G. & C. R. R.,
which position he held for six months.
This brings him up to the time of his
appointment as Sheriff by Gov. Scott in
1871, to fill Thos. M. Paysinger's unex
pired term. Was elected Sheriff on the
Republican ticket in 1872, and was a
candidate again in 1876, against D. B.
Wheeler, Democrat - w a s declared
elected, but Mr. Wheeler having insti
tuted a contest for the office, he allowed
a judgment by default to go against
him. In the fall of 1877, he moved to
Travis County, Texas, taking with him
Burt Renwick, colored, and Frank El
ford, white, convicts from this County,
who had recently escaped from the
Greenwood & Augusta Railroad, and
Judge Davenport, a negro desperado,
who is charged with murdering his own
step-daughter, and for whom Governor
Hampton has offered a reward of $150,
was arrested at the same time and
People are looking forward with de
lightful anticipations to the fall, when
the abundant crops are gathered and
money is plentifal. Economy is the
order now and it is right, that is in so
far as concerns such articles as can be
done without. But it is unwise policy
to deprive oneself of things which are
essential to comfort, and especially when
they can be had for a mere trifle. How

THE Y THING.-For a few days
past there has been on exhibition in
front of Mr. Keene's store a portable
fruit and vegetable dryer, which seems
to be the sine qua non of usefulness in
this line. We will not attempt a des
cription, but say that the possession of
one of these fruit dryers will make a
farmer's wife happy all the days of her
life. All she would have to do would
be to cut the fruit, place it inside, and
go on her way rejoicing, without fear
of depredating chickens, sudden storms,
mischievous calves, or any of the nu
merous visitations which are liable to
ruffle her temper ; in the course of a
few hours she can return, take it out
and place in more. Fruit dried in this
way is better, more saleable, than that
by the old process. Mr. B. Hammond
is the proprietor, who will take pleas
ure in telling you all about it.
