The Coming Governor.
Regarding success as of paramount
importance, -and wishing to see the
most available and acceptable man
nominated for Governor of the Dem
ocratic Party of South Carolina, we
have heretofore withheld an expression
of opinion or preference on this im
portant question, although we know
and acknowledge that a fair discussion
of the merits of our public men will
lead to a more careful and intelligent
selection. We would have adhered
to this conservative course, and de
ferred any expression of opinion on
this matter to a much later period
were it not for the character of the
discussion which has been indulged in
by a small portion of the press, and
the evident disposition of some of the
leaders in the State to control and
direct public sentiment by secret com
binations and unfair personal allusions
to one, at least, of the parties men
tioned, as worthy of our serious con
sideration. Wben a man has been
promoted to an exalted position by the
people of the State it is but a poor
compliment to himself, as well as to
the people who selected him, to say by
words or actions that they are in
capable of doing just as well, or making
as wise selection in the future. There
fore we are in favor of the people be
ing allowed to do their own thinking
and voting as they have shown them
selves fully capable of doing this in
the past. In discussing the merits of
public men, we do not see the ue
cessity for the members of the press to
enter into the details of a man's pri
vate life to find doubtful objection to
a man's moral character or peculiar
religion, in order to find some
objection to him, and to help their
own favorite; and for our own part,
we shall not condescend to any
such dirty, detestable, scurrilous
words, for in such a contest there is
no telling who might be besmattered,
when we remember that some men
hide their moral sins and others do
not-that some parade their ehristian
virtues for the sake of popularity; and
others are too manly or not sufficiently
bypocritical to prostitute religion to
such ignoble purposes. This up
country, which comprised the princi
pal portion of the Straight-out Demo
cracy of 1876, may be very properly
called the back bone of theDemo
cratio paty of South Carolina. The
redemption of the State from the In
dians commenced on the coast ; the
redemption of the State from the
Radicals and Negroes commenced
and depended for success upon the
people of the mountains and hills, in
which Marion, Sumter, and Morgan, of
the first Revolution, found refuge, as
sistance and encouragement, and
wherein neither the British nor Rad
icalism ever subdued the people. The
future success of the Democratic Par
ty must depend largely, if not alto
gether, upon this section ; and there
fore its voice and influence should Dot
be ignored. In adding our voice to
that great power called public senti
ment, which should, and must decide,
who shall be the next Governor, we
simply wish to say, after a careful
survey of the political situation, that
we believe Gen. M. W. Gary of Edge
field, more perfectly and fully repre
sents the feelings, sentiments and
higher instincts of the white people
of South Carolina who, after all, must
decide the matter, than any other man
that can be nominated. The opposi
tion and objection to him are of a
personal character, and too often arises
from personal feeling and is, therefore,
not worthy of serious consideration.
It is true that he is quick and spirited,
but then he is generous and forgiving
as well. Although his true courage
and decision of character have been
falsely called rashness, and his pa
triotism and devotion ambition, (and
who of the great are free from it) it
is only sufficient for us to know that
be is wise in counsel, ready in debate,
quick in action ; and that he always
turns up right in the end. Gen.
Gary has been true to his country and
people, as well as to his family and
friends ; besides, probably, showing
more foresight and ability than any
other leader in the State. Believing
that he is not only our choice, but
also the choice of a large majority of
the true white Democratic voters of
the State, he will secure undoubted
success to the Democracy, and make a
vigilant, practical, pr6gressive Gover
nor, we close this article with the
simple remark that South Carolina san
afford to forgive and forget in anything
else, but never to forget or ignore his

Special Dispatch to the News and convier.
COLMBIm, December 8.-The pro
posed contract with Thompson & Na
gle for the develop.ment of the Colum
bia canal provides that they shall make
a dam over the Congaree and Broad
(if necessary). They are to commene
work within sixty days after the pas

thousand horse-power, fifteen hundred
of which they guarantee to give the
State, to be selected from any portion
of the canal *he State authorities may
see fit. The lessees also bind them
selves to have the canal completed
sad a factory of sixteen hundred spin
dles in operation within three years.
The State is to contribute 250 con

to the water power, privileges and
franchises until the work guaranteed
above is completed, or approved bonds
of one hundred thousand dollars given

A PAPER FOR THE PEOPLE.

State. It circulates extensively, and as an
AdvertisiniL medium offers unrivalled ad
vantages. it or Terms. see first page.
Should the Party Disband?
The letter of Col. Keitt last week
and that of Congressman Aiken in
this issue are causing considerable
comment. The letter of Col. Aiken
is a surprise to everybody.. He is
one of the last men in the State
from whom such doctrines would
have been expected. What we said
last week in reference to Col. Keitt,
we now repeat concerning Col.
Aiken: "We do not doubt the sin
cerity of his motives nor the hon
esty of his opinion." But they are
wrong in their views, and especially
imprudent at this time to be giving
them such widespread publicity.
It is very important to this State
that the Democratic party should
remain'united, at least for another
year. Such sentiments as those
contained in Col. Aiken's letter,
coming from so high a source, are
calculated to disintegrate and dis
organize the party. So far as Na
tional politics are concerned we are
free to admit that it does not make
a great deal of difference with us
whether Republicans or Democrats
are in power at Washington so long
as we can keep control of our State
Government. It is also a fact, of
which we have had abundant proof,
that the Northern Democrats care
for the party South only so far as
they can use it for their own pro
motion. Notwithstanding these
things we believe it not only our
duty but in the highest degree our
interest to keep up the organization
for National as well as State issaes.
Astute Republicans are watching
for every sign of disaffection in our
ranks and let the work of disor
ganization once begin at the South
and the whole negro vote will be
instantly marshalled and arrayed
Col. Aiken says that it is impos
sible for the Democrats to carry
either New York or Indiana. Many
other prominent and wise men I
lieve otherwise. At any rate there
is no harm in trying, especially
when a fight for the Presidency
will aid the Southern States in
maintaining their Democratic su
premacy. We do not think that
the views of Cols. Keitt and Aiken
will meet with any sympathy from
the white people of their own State.
Several of the young men in the
Legislature are perpetually jump
ing up and ventilating their opin
ions. They must have their say on
nearly every bill; they introduce a
great many measures of every varie
ty of character ; they consider that
they were sent there to legislate,
and, "b3 the eternal", they are de
termined to do it. They are all in
favor of a short session ; yet if
every member of the one hundred
and twenty-four in the House, or
even half of them, should have as
much to say as these rising young
statesmen the Legislature would
have to sit till Spring or Summer.
Associate Justice McGowan.
The election for Associate Justice
of the Supreme Court was held
Thursday by the Legislature. The
candidates were Judge W. H. Wal
lace, of Union, and Gen. Sam'l Mc
Gowan, of Abbeville. Gen. McGow
an was elected by a majority of four.
Gen. McGowan is an able lawyer,
and has done as much for the State,
in war and in peace, as any man
living. His elevation to the Su
preme Bench is a fitting tribute to
his public services and his legal

rier of the 11th instant, contains a
letter from Hon. D. Wyatt Aiken.
A large part of it it taken up with
a very interesting account of the
National Grange meeting; but we
have not space for the whole letter,
and only insert that portion which
refers to politics. It will be seen
that he takes the same position as
Col. Keitt, except that he makes no
nomination. He writes from Wash
ington as follows:
Party iule an.d party limits meisturc
the patriotism of those who come here
to make laws. "Distance lends en
chantuiment to the view ;" and, possi
bly, vA. one approaches greatness its
awe-inspiring majesty appears. It
seems to me there is no greatness
statesmanship-here The leaders of
both parties are partisans, not states
men ; they are sectional in politics, and
not patriotic Every question of im
portance has its Democratic and Re
publican friends and enemies. A "yea
and nay" vote generally separates the
flocks, but at heart there are sheep
and goats in both flocks. Sectional
measures show that blood is thicker
than water. Pension appropriations
or Northern improvements easily close
up the gap between Northern Repub
lieans and Northern Democrats. South
ern pensions or Southern improve
ments keep it closed up. At the
North a were sentitnent-the Solid
South-has whipped 75 per cent. of
the voting population into the Repub
lican party, and if our Southern leaders
continue to thrust into Northern faces
Southere hoices for presidential hon
ors, the remaining 25 per cent. will be
there before the ides of next Novem
ber. Acd then, "what are you going
to do about it ?"
Looking the field all over, Me9srs.
Editors, and analyzing the incentives
that prompt the actions of your leg
i9lators, I aw irressstibly convinced
that if we wish to live in peace and
prosperity under our own vines and
fig trees at the South, and cement this
Union with a cohesion really patriotic
and true, the time has come for a "new
deal" 'itically ; or if not yet, is not
far distant. Both the political parties
of this country have out-lived their
usefulness, and should be wiped out.
The word Republican, used in a parti
san sense, is hateful to every respect
able Southerner who loves the land
that gave him birth. I have reason
to know that the word Democr-atie,
used in a partisan sense, is no less
distasteful to a majority of the voters
of the North, and they of the better
classes. Then how can these two dis
cordant elements assimilate for the
public weal ? They cannot. I would
not destroy parties They are neces
sary to estTbli.-h a wholksomie public
opinion. But they should never be
allowed to become sectionarl. A Solid
South vs. n Solid North simply means
a house divided against itself, and as
true as the book in whiCh it was
written will be the sequence of such
division. WVe have the "Solid South,"
to-day. The "Solid North" will come
so soon that it will seem like to
morrow when it is passed. M~y con
viction is the partisan does not live
who can '-carry" New York as a Dem
orat. Neither will Democracy "car
ry" Indiana. All else is Republican.
If this result is inevitable, as I verily
believeit is, :what alternative have we ?
The people have it in their power
to remodel t.he structure so unwisely
built by their leaders. The industrial
elements of the country, both North
and South, comprising at least 75 per
cent, of the voting population of the
Union, including farmers, mechanics
and other artisans, should rally to the
rescue of the tottering fa'bric, and in
national convention place before the
American people a Presidential ticket
not recognized by its former a!!egiane
to either existing party-a ticket that
would know no North, no South, no
East, no West, but patriotic enough to
be beyond the behests of party and
able enough to govern without preju
dice, but with equity and justice, this
entire country. That such a ticket
can be framed I do not for one nmo
ment doubt. That it will be, before
it is too l-ate, time alone can tell.

The Old Payne Bridge.
This bridge on Henry Burton's
land, and once built across Little
River, is n(w completely rotted down
and should be rebuilt. Why it has
not been done we cannot see. The
river at this point is fordable in ex
tremely dry weather ; but the least
quantity of rain renders it in a few
The Commissioners of Newberry
County should certainly see to it; for
on the Western side it is thickly pop
ulated and the coming to Newberry,
except by a roundabout way of some
ten miles lower down, renders it im
practicable. Again, in cases of sick
ness or dangerous injuries to persons,
when it is a matter of life and death,
and immediate medical assistance re
quired, if it chances to have been
raining, the medical assistance from
this side, although but a few miles off,
would have to be sought by a ride of
twenty miles or more. All these mat
ters are great inconvenienoes and
should be rectified.
There is no use for Commissioners
to be frightened at their own shadows
-that they cannot do this or that, as
they have no money. Bridges have
been built over this sanme river when
the County was in debt, as muLCh as
today, and, by the by, have not been
paid for yet.
The people of that vicinity wanat the
bridge on account of the con venience
thereby afforded ; not only in a busi
ness and medical point of view, but
in other respects, social and religious.
We know that there are parties
ready to build the bridge ; who, if it
is let out, will take the contract, build
it and wait for the money, if it is
When such is the case there should
be no humming and hawing, for fear
of this or that being said, when the
